Over the weekend I took a retreat of sorts by experiencing Belinda Davidson‘s White Light Healing chakra cleanse and realignment. At 9pm over the three days, I was filled with white light energy which I could feel swirling around me and as it concentrated on each of my chakras by way of warmth and sensation in each area, and sometimes seeing their corresponding colour in my mind’s eye. My focus was on fixing my financial issues so I am looking forward to any positive change that may come about.
I’m not sure if it is a direct result, but I was given a special rate when I booked my tattoo in with Ian Parkin and he also decided to fit me into his full schedule at the Brighton Tattoo Convention, meaning I would not have to make the arduous 10 hour round trip train journey up to Newcastle to get it done.
In fact, quite a bit of positive change has happened this past week. I defiantly decided to stop being poor, something that has plagued me my entire life and with the help of two amazing women who have both written self improvement books I am reading right now, namely Lucky Bitch by Denise Duffield-Thomas and SASSY by Lisa Clark, I made some changes that have seen me step up to the plate and make things happen.
Denise asked her Twitter followers what they would do if they had the money and I said I would buy tickets and book hotels and tattoo appointments for various events coming up. She replied saying to go ahead and do these things anyway, acting on faith that the Universe will provide.
So I did. I looked up the cost of all the things I want to do and felt the sting of disappointment if I didn’t manage to do them due to lack of funds. I contacted my tattoo artist and requested a booking which resulted in the aforementioned goodness and these things made me do what I could to earn the funds so I could experience them. I was also riding on the ringing sound of “if it’s meant to be, it’s up to me” which I had read in Lisa Clark’s book SASSY.
While it may not look like it to some people, I am constantly improving myself and trying to stay true to my heart and I often think I’m doing it the hard way but I know I’m now headed in the right direction and I intend to surprise people with the way I turn my life around.
Every time the brat in my brain tries to start spreading hate messages, I just tell it to bugger off cos I’m still figuring this stuff out. I haven’t been depressed in two months despite the pest’s best efforts at installing negative thoughts, but I put my warrior goddess armour on and I’m not tired of the battle yet. I owe it to myself and to the people I can help, to win this war.
