I’ve been writing a lot on the subject of time in my last few blog posts. This is due to the fact that I recently took part in a 4-day silent meditation retreat. It was over a long holiday weekend so it seemed perfect timing…meaning, business wasn’t expected to continue at its normal pace so I felt I could fit it in my schedule without too many things getting overlooked.
WOW, what an eye opener! One of the biggest take-aways from the Vipassana was the speeding up AND the slowing down of my experience with time. We literally had 6 meditation sessions a day with rest, tea and meal breaks. And 4 days with no talking! ME, not talking. That alone is quite a feat, but as I said time was super warped. Some days the sessions flew by and other times it seemed like forever, though we were doing pretty much the same thing. Eyes closed, deep breathing, counting breaths, not speaking, in and out, over and over and over again.
The point is that somewhere I came to understand that the only point in time that truly matters is the one we’re living right now. The present moment. I’ve been teaching this for years, but the meditation experience brought it home.
And no matter how many times I teach “the joy is in the journey” and “you can enjoy every moment on your way to your manifested desires”, most still want a microwave fast career. Go to school (or a few acting classes), get an agent, have a few awesome auditions, book a gig on TV, film, be seen by key people and become a household name, highly sought after actor on her way to a big award…and like YESTERDAY PLEASE! Listen I get it, so here’s a little something for you to chew on…
For those that have known me over the many years or even if you’ve just recently started reading my blogs, you may know that I’m a huge believer in the Law of Attraction, and I truly believe that if you’ve read this far, then you’re here for a reason and your timing is perfect. So I’d like to share a short video from one of my great teachers on the subject, Abraham-Hicks.
The video is entitled “Why is it taking a long time to manifest?” and I offer it to those of you who want what you want faster than you’re getting it and the possible answer to why that is. Click this link and take 7 minutes, eyes closed, and listen to the answer.
I’m still a huge believer in enjoying every moment to moment delicious moment of the day, and I’m still creating lots of things I desire that haven’t yet manifested for me too. But I’m not in a hurry about it anymore. Instead I know that it, they, he, she, those are coming my way and I’m perfectly content if it’s tomorrow, next week or next year.
I’d love your comments on the video/audio and or the Law of Attraction and how it works in your life below!
