“The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment.”
– Earl Nightingale
For the last few days, I’ve been setting up my new room, and it’s quite cozy now, Even Ippa seems to like our new digs better. I went out today to find a couple of pieces of art to finish my room. I especially needed something to go on the wall facing my bed, it looks like an eye sore and that’s what I’ll be looking at when inspiration strikes early in the morning and late at night, which is becoming a common occurrence. I better get something that I like looking at.
I didn’t have anything specific in mind, except that I wanted some blue tones because its the accent color I chose for my room. I hadn’t consciously thought about whether I’d find anything or not, but I did plan to only go to a home furnishings store next to my regular grocery store because it was convenient, I like the store, and they usually have stuff I like. I guess I did expect to find what I wanted because I didn’t think I’d have to go anywhere else. Positive attitude. And, no surprise, I found two absolutely perfect pieces that make me happy to look at. Both images of blue flowers are the perfect size too. One is an abstract forest and the other, blue poppies – the feature image for this post.
While I was out, I noticed that every where I went, people seemed to be extra friendly to me, striking up conversations beyond the normal pleasantries of strangers in passing. Is my positivity radiating outward, and drawing people to me? I’m not normally an ogre or anything, but I’m not chatty Cathy either; I just focus on my task and move on. Today the lady at the home store checkout was super friendly, and kept chatting with me for a good 5 minutes while people were waiting in line. I had the same experience in the grocery store – people were super friendly to me, and went the extra mile to make my shopping experience pleasant.
I also noticed that I naturally acted from a state of abundance today without consciously trying to. Until a few years ago, that is how I always behaved – I never worried about money, I spent freely, I was very generous with others, and I never paid attention to price tags; I just picked what I liked and bought it. I generally believed that I always had enough. For the last few years, I have been tarnished by the conventional wisdom to be careful with your money, and save for a rainy day; I’ve being acting from a lack mindset.
Since I started practicing conscious creation, I have made a conscious effort to live in a state of abundance, but I still found myself watching how much I spent, and being concerned about not having enough money. Today, I just picked up what I liked without looking at the price tag or caring about the cost. I am feeling abundant again! Yay!
As if that wasn’t enough evidence for one day that my positivity project is affecting my world, for some unknown reason, when I got home I looked up what blue flowers symbolize. I don’t normally buy artwork and then look up the symbolism, especially not of flowers. This is what I found: A blue flower is a central symbol of inspiration. It stands for desire, love, and the metaphysical striving for the infinite and unreachable. It symbolizes hope and the beauty of things.
And this is only day 16. I can’t wait to see what unfolds over the next 350 days!
And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
