Directing my Valkyrie | MKE Year 3 Week 9

As I learn more about who I was born to be…I realize that the things from my childhood which I thought were too jeuvenile or silly were swept aside; those character traits (emotional and physical), which I have consciously eliminated from my daily repertoire…these are in fact the foundation of the true Me…they are the bumpers to my bowling lane! At the risk of sounding like a cheese ball…they complete me.

Things like saying “Have a HAPPY day!” rather than “Have a good day” [the boring, confirmative yet still pleasant and more grown-up version].

The Valkyrie inside me has always been there..now that it’s awake, I can barely contain the majestic-ness of it all. Realigning with the 6 year-old Me has been magical, in every sense of the word. I choose to believe in Magic. And I’m happy about it!

I’m putting the real me on display for the world … to love or not to love…

All of my wild love. All my captivating, intoxicating goodness…designed to fulfill my destiny and act as a beacon towards my life’s truest calling….baring my soul, my secrets, and my strengths to the world with pride and humility and I have gratitude and love in my heart so the Universe will bring back to me more of that which I give.

While I feel more free, I also feel more capable, impactful, and yes…even Happier!!

   

This is me, and I love me. Flaws and imperfections are my signature, not my deficit, and I’ve embraced being different – actually, I wouldn’t want it any other way!! I’m going to be the best…my best…that way I can really change things.

The Universal Test

From time to time, the Universe has been known to throw pain and suffering at me, often at the most inopportune times. Likely geared towards muting my light…to distract me from realizing my full potential…and sadly, I have been an unconscious pawn in this game far too long. By allowing this to continue, I am essentially accepting defeat and everything I’ve ever wanted had seemed just beyond my reach.

Well no more. Now I am adorned with goodness and light and more affluence and favor than many will ever know. I know I am very blessed and highly favored.

They [exactly who are ‘they’, anyways?] and why do we voluntarily give ‘them’ is much power?? Anyways…they comment that it’s always darkest before dawn…and I am proud to say that this has never dissuaded me. I promise myself I will overcome the previous addiction to remaining stuck in this realm of torment and drama.

   

Some people believe the Universe is out to get them…well, what I believe is that the Universe IS out to get you – to get you to learn a new lesson, to get you to make different decisions, to make new mistakes, to evolve.

Pain is no longer my fuel, nor is it my vice. When I’ve got a full plate and my resolve threatens to buckle under the pressure…it is at that very moment – while I contemplate certain defeat…that I will not give in, rather I will harness this energy into my greatness…because is where all the magic lies.

The fork in the road, the Fulcrum point…most would [and usually do] concede – justifying their own excuses, allowing Resistance to flail its treacherous sword; hacking apart the ridge built by the conscious minds.

A select few who have adopted the Master Key principles are able to line the trials and tribulations with an overwhelming sense of the warm and fuzzies, vigilantly ploughing through, taking baby steps and sometimes giant leaps and bounds towards overcoming obstacles and turning adversities into advantages.

Think of it like ‘levelling up’…the game platform represents the Universe, the game represents your life/future/desire…and the arsenal of weapons available to you represents your mental stronghold of positive mental thoughts and attitudes.

Will you answer the call??

When my kids were young, and in reality, quite recently as well, I’d always encourage them to ‘make new mistakes’. Instead of throwing in the towel, I took the addition of another simultaneous ‘super important, stress-enduring, time-sucking emergency and instead became laser-focused on funnelling that negative energy into the never-dying battery pack, without any trace of question or exception, powers my Resolve.

More burden…Bring It!

Another Stressor…I’ve got this.

…the needle in the Haystack…I see you and I’m coming for you. Your time is over because I’m coming for you!

I can be what I will to be. And I empower my Vigilant Guardsman as my Valkyrie.

When I feel an insurmountable amount of pressure, I remind myself of my promise to NEVER, EVER QUIT because I’ve embraced the darkness – for the pattern that holds true despite and inspire of the sands of time is this:

Without fail, it is during my darkest and most challenging times that I have come face-to-face with my Demons; and the Vigilant Watchman ensures that it there they shall lie…strewn upon piles of fear and broken dreams, for all eternity these distractions will no longer direct my course. In the darkness I conquer what no longer serves me, and as the dark recess, the new me emerges, armed with new knowledge and habit, with renewed belief and restored confidence.

According to Norse legend, the Valkyrie were beautiful women who watched over Odin’s army and transported their souls to a safe haven, where they were to await the epic, final battle. Those who were weak or unworthy did not get a second chance, they died and were forgotten.

This analogy resonated with me [as all good analogies do!] because my MKE-infused brain is, in essence, watching over my thoughts and filtering which ones are saved, and which ones are discarded and forgotten about. My brain is my Valkyrie. My Vigilant Guardsman at the Gate.

I refuse to conform. I am free of its control because I now realize – and accept – my power to control this destruction and recognize my competent ability to make different choices, which will affect more positive results.

I greet this day with love in my heart.

Today and every day I am growing stronger and more magnetic.

I am not defined as just ‘one thing’, rather I am everything, all at once. Completely in tune with the Universe. I am perfect, whole, harmonious and complete. And above all else, I am Happy!

I do everything with grace and ease because I embrace it all with love in my heart.

I’m so great-ful that you’ve joined me on this journey…please leave your comments and observations below…they fuel my fire and I’m so appreciative for your time and interaction.

Have a HAPPY day!

Red Pencil Epidemic | MKE Year 3 Week 8

Humans are born with two fears – the fear of falling, and the fear of loud noises – the rest, we learn (or rather, we learn to accept). 

For some reason, our school system seems to get off by telling us how bad we’ve done, rather than celebrating our victories [however small or insignificant they may seem]. Take any spelling test any kid has ever taken…on a list of 10 words let’s say you get 8 right and 2 wrong — we never see 8 green checkmarks, but rather 2 red X’s that stand out on the page like a punch in the face.

image-23 Don’t get me wrong, I hold teachers in the highest regard, but I can’t wrap my head around the constant negativity focus. Can you imagine how different the world would be if we were praised with 8 green check marks instead of 2 red X’s?!!!

Fear does not promote learning. Our mental habit patterns are permeated with it. We exist in a dull ache of consciousness (according to Marianne Williamson). We’re just so programmed to live in fear that it becomes our default.

Our emotions flow from our thoughts, not the other way around. The depth of our wounds keeps us mired in them, keeps us stuck in a river of mediocrity. When we emotionalize situations in our mind, we intensify the pain. The longer we do this, the more comfortable we become with the pain, and then without warning or apology we become so comfortable with the pain that we subconsciously seek out new ways to create it. *Quite the gut punch, right!*

Fear lives in the past and the past has nothing to do with the present. 

The situation is not the enemy – the feelings we’ve attached to the situation are the enemy. Our perception of the past keeps us stuck in it…hidden emotional knives puncture us as we replay the feelings over and over again – in order to heal we must let go of the fear. Change only occurs when you make the decision to heal. It’s like reprogramming your emotional computer. You must consider the possibility of another possibility. What if what we perceive as fear is actually excitement or inspiration?! Did you know that the neuro pathways produced by fear versus the neuro pathways produced by excitement are only one or two neurons apart?? 

Healing occurs in the present, not the past. 

True Story: There is no such thing as a grey sky – the sky is always blue, sometimes it’s just covered in grey clouds. 

If you want to live a life unlike the past…what you do, or don’t do, determines your growth. The world changes when we change. We must take on a more gentle perception of how we experience our experiences. We cannot fight fear – we must replace it with LOVE. We must embrace an enlightened love if you want to live a life unlike the past. 

What you do, or don’t do, determines your growth.

There is no need to live in fear. 

The key to happiness is the decision to be happy. 

When you release fear, a whole world of opportunity will unfold at your feet. When you’re ready to forgive anyone or anything that has hurt you, an affirmation I’ve used to help accomplish this is

‘I forgive you _______________ , and I release you to the Holy Spirit.’

Be your own green pencil! 

Think HAPPY thoughts. 

Lead with LOVE.

YES YOU CAN!!

Love,

Jen
