{PERSONAL JOURNEY WEEK 4} The week of crashes that didn't burn.

Something happened this past week in my relationship with my husband that echoed so many arguments we've gotten in before.

And, while we had amazing relationship coaches ready to provide value, there was still severe conflict and disconnect.

What was surprising to me is that I felt differently about it.

My journey with Abraham Hicks, with meditating at least 20 minutes a day, and opening up to my personal power enabled me to stand in my own experience without getting rocked so hard that I couldn't see straight... which is precisely how it's felt in the past.

I've been journaling. 

Taking extreme accountability.

Practicing gratitude and the belief that contrasts serve incredible value in directing me towards everything that I actually DO want.

I've been repeating the forgiveness mantra, Ho'oponopono, as much as I can. 

I'm in a supremely challenging situation and yet, I feel like there are opportunities for substantial growth here — so long as I can keep my focus on what's working and what I'd like more of in my life, as well as moving into the powers of real manifestation.

This doesn't mean that I don't feel the human feelings of anger, rage, hurt, upset, disgust, etc. It means that I can feel them and then choose my next feeling, thought, and response.

Where are you these days with the challenges and triumphs in your life?
