Well.... I started working through The Magic by Rhonda Byrne on Friday by making a list of all the things I want in my life.
It was a struggle at first to put pen to paper and say what I want, as I come from an age when we were told "I want doesn't get!".
But eventually I had a decent list which is meant to be reviewed and changed as you get the things you want.
Then I could start with Day 1
Each morning I have to write down 10 things I am grateful for to the Universe (or God), with the reasons I am grateful for them.
Perhaps this butterfly will be on my list.
I then have to read the list through, one item at a time, and say "thank you" to to the Universe.
On Day 2 morning I have to repeat writing down another 10 things I am grateful for.
Gosh that is hard to do! I'm sure by the end of the 28 days I'll have got the hang of it though.
The next task is to find a Magic Rock or Stone.
..... and here is mine.
I picked it up off a lovely beach in Wales when M and I were on holiday there in April. As you can see it is a dark stone with lovely sparkly flecks.
When going to bed at night it is the task to pick up the Magic Stone and think of all the wonderful things that have happened during the day and pick the best thing that happened... and be grateful for it. Not just think of it but really feel grateful for it.
The stone is to sit by my bed for the (now) 27 days.
I've only been doing this the shortest while... but already it feels so right and having the stone there as something solid and tangible is wonderful. Thank you Rhonda Byrne.... thank you, thank you <3
