Always for highest good and great ease
I will start by sharing a story of mine with you.
I was sitting in a restaurant I visited daily with my best friend and sister. They had an amazing breakfast special called “The Tremendous Twelve.” Of course our intention was to split the monstrous meal. The down side to that was that the cook knew us because we came in everyday and the guy always gave us way more food than the meal should have been.
I remember sitting there and looking down at the plate.
Now you have to know that I was extremely overweight at the time (at about 425 pounds… check out my before and after pictures). I was declaring to both my sister and my friend that there were only two ways I’d ever lose weight: 1) If they wired my jaw shut so I couldn’t eat, or 2) if I had gastric bypass surgery. At the time, neither one was really appealing to me, but the thoughts, words, feelings and emotions around it still went out to the universe.
After we left the restaurant, we headed back to my friend’s house who was very upset about moving from her home of 20 years into a smaller apartment. I decided to help her and do what I could. We were sitting in the office and I noticed in the corner that there was a Nordic Track sitting there. My friend was a little lost. She wasn’t really sure what to do because she was so emotional about moving. So I of course took charge and started directing things.
“Move that Nordic Track out to the truck!,” I said, which was just outside the front door.
I then marched over and picked up the computer monitor, which was a 21-inch monstrosity that looked like an old TV set (not a flat screen, but one of those old really big ones.) As a matter of fact, it was so big I couldn’t see over the top of it. As I started to walk down the hallway into the living room to take it out to the truck, I was unaware that my friend had set the Nordic Track down, slightly blocking the doorway in the living room. I tripped over it and all 425 pounds of me went airborne.
Somehow by some divine intervention, I heard a voice say, “Turn your head please.”
So as I tumbled down, I turned my head; my hands hit the floor, saving the monitor mind you because I was more concerned about breaking it than myself. Instantly, my jaw hit the side of the monitor. To my shock and dismay I had fractured my jaw. I went to the hospital and had my jaw wired shut for six weeks.
It’s interesting that I created that situation in less than an hour of speaking the words at breakfast. You see, with my jaw wired shut, I lost 40 pounds.
Now you would think this saga would be over with. But you see, at the time I did not realize that when we think, speak, feel or emote something, if it does not always manifest immediately, it suspends around us, possibly for years, until the conditions are perfect for manifestation.
And just like a perfect storm, in January of 2006 I had to have gastric banding done for weight loss because I never neutralized or released the statement made about the gastric bypass way back then.
I share this story with you because it demonstrates that we’re powerful creators in our lives. We’ve all had crap happen to us, and we create the opportunities, the letdowns, the breakthroughs, the whole of it, although sometimes it’s easier than others to see our part in the creation of it.
It is also important to know that when we ask for what we desire, we say “for my highest good and with great ease.” If we fail to do so, we can get what we ask for, but it can be painful.
For example, I had a friend whose car broke down for the hundredth time and he frustratingly said, “I need a new car now.” However, he didn't say “for my highest good and with great ease.” The universe heard that request loud and clear, along with that push from the emotion of frustration. My friend got a new car alright. But it was not how he imagined. He ended up totaling his car, and getting injured in the accident.
So the moral to this story is he got what he asked for, which was a new car. However, it was with pain and suffering. Had he asked for a new car in his highest good and with great ease, he could have directed his desires it in an easier way.
This is but one example. So think about some of the words we use, like:
“It’s genetic; it runs in our family,” and boom you create an illness
“I just keep gaining weight,” and we put on more weight
“I just feel so tired,” and those cups of coffee just don’t seem to be working
So yes, sometimes we get sloppy with what we’re putting out there. I like to use the following Release Statement whenever I have not caught my words, thoughts, feelings, emotions and actions. I find that it helps me take accountability for my creative power.
“Anything I may have said, spoken ill, thought, felt, emoted or did that is contrary to my highest good, or anything suppressed, repressed, suspended or hanging around that is contrary to my highest good, I release it all to you now for my highest good and with great ease.”
So, listen to the words you are using and what you are putting out there, because most likely the words you are saying to yourself, are what is manifesting in your life. And I recommend always asking that it be for your highest good and with the greatest of ease.
