Doesn’t it royally piss you off sometimes when you keep making the same mistake over and over again? I don’t mean doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. I mean repeatedly experiencing something you thought you already worked through!
Ah … to be as spiritually advanced all the time that we might claim to be! Right?!? We all make mistakes and we all experience results we didn’t foresee happening. It’s what my mama calls “life.”
If you and I can be just a little nicer to ourselves, a little more forgiving of our foibles, and laugh at ourselves instead of scolding ourselves, we’ll be a whole lot happier. Not only that, there are three other benefits we might very well discover. Okay, totally about me here – it’s what I have been experiencing this year – and here they are:
First, the mistakes we laugh about tend to re-occur less frequently! Why? Because we aren’t focusing on the problem. Instead, we loved ourselves in spite of ourselves.
Second, the more we laugh at our own mistakes the kinder we are when others around us make mistakes.
Third, those same people – and others, too, who we might not even know! – become kinder when we make a mistake around them.
Everyone wins! I invite you to mindfully put this into practice this week. We can all use a little slack in our lives, and we can start by giving ourselves some today!
Spiritual Mind Treatment for the Week of July 6, 2020
Let the words below be your words if that feels right for you.
I want to live a never-ending example of improvement.
Affirmation suggested by @AbrahamHicks
There is one life. That life creates everything I see out of an overwhelming urge to articulate a desire. It expressed itself as me to do so uniquely and perfectly. I am that creation.
I speak this word knowing that my life is perfect. It is the perfect out picturing of my thoughts made manifest. If what I see does not fit the picture I thought I was creating, I get to choose again. Choosing again resets my intention. It puts the law of cause and effect into motion in a way more aligned with my desire.
That which I accomplished or attained yesterday may or may not be what I choose to experience today. It is my, and only my, choice whether to continue on a certain path or decide to traverse another way toward my destination.
I rejoice with gratitude and compassion the determinations I make regarding my results. I know that universal law always responds in kind and for this I give thanks. I release this word knowing it is made manifest immediately. And So It Is.
