What a week. It was successful beyond my imagination or definition. I got closure on the subject that’d been bothering me for weeks as well as closure on a couple of other issues that I wasn’t actively focusing on. I always find it interesting how just focusing on a certain value can invite in a lot of it. As they say, where your focus goes energy flows.
I journaled quite a bit early in the week and after a couple of days of doing this, I had a number of insights. On Aug 22nd, I had what felt like a download of insights and the solution became crystal clear to me. I spent a few hours reveling in these insights and in the general appreciation of my life.
This week was salient for the closure(s) I got, but I feel like my biggest win was locking onto some powerful frames that will serve me well for years to come. I’m so pleased.
Week #35 – Pronoia
“The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.”
― Albert Einstein
I don’t think pronoia would be recognized as a ‘value’, but I certainly consider this to be one. Wikipedia has this to say about it:
Whereas a person suffering from paranoia feels that persons or entities are conspiring against them, a person experiencing pronoia feels that the world around them conspires to do them good.
The first lesson of the course Deep Abundance Integration by Steve Pavlina is called A deeply loving universe. To me, pronoia is exactly this – the belief that I live in a deeply loving universe. A universe that’s always on my side, no matter what. the belief that everything is always working out for me. Everything is happening for me and not to me.
I’m going to keep this simple: as soon as I wake up, I’ll affirm this belief. While I meditate, I’ll focus my thoughts on this value. Before I fall asleep, I’ll affirm this belief again.
I’m curious to see how this week unfolds!
