Gratitude Journal Experiment Days 12-15: Forget Manifestation! This is God at Work –Gratitude Journaling Results

 

20120507-214456.jpg

We’ve done it again. Surprised ourselves with how eternally good life can be when we slow down and smell the flowers. And the coffee.

I’ve always been happy. I just used to think that to be happy I had to have something to make me happy — you know, like a nice friend, a chocolate cake, a cuddly blanket, sweet kisses from a sweet dude…. Stuff like that.

And, even though 7 years ago, I learned that loving myself was an option thanks to a very dear friend who had herself just discovered the phenomenon — I continue to sink deeper into the depths of that pleasure.

We started this gratitude blog, so that we could train ourselves to live more in that heart vibration. We know that our hearts vibrate so much stronger than our minds that the frequency can even heal DNA. We know that when we really align our thoughts and actions with what’s right in our hearts, we often manifest amazing “things” and experiences. Naturally, we figured that journaling our experience would help us prove that gratitude does WORK. But we’re not new age mumbo-jumbo blowers. We don’t believe we have full control. We believe we are connected co-creators, and that just because we may desire a million dollars, we’re not going to manifest it by simply being super grateful. It’s certainly not impossible. It’s completely probable –if the million bucks is exactly what we need to fulfill our purpose.

It seems that by beginning with the things or concepts that make us happy in the moment, we discover the deeper sense of happiness within… Or, we in fact CREATE a deeper sense of happiness that isn’t reliant on stuff or experiences.

We’ve been able to manifest a great number of “things” thanks to our clear connection with spirit. We are absolutely always taken care of in the best ways. This has been the case for me even since I was a small child. If I need a quarter, I find a quarter. If I’m craving ice cream, someone hands me a cone. I truly never want painfully for what I don’t have. I’ve intuitively summoned help from people during the middle of the night, found free furniture that was shown to me in visions, known exactly where to travel, who to talk to… Stuff like that.

That said, we went through some tough piles of dung recently. As we move on our spiritual path, we’ve been challenged with connecting our own spirits and bodies. We’ve had some physical limitations that I’ll talk about in another post. Many things that seem real and concrete in the social, outside world like money, food, establishments, schools, politics and Rules about the “norm” have revealed their falseness to us. It is as if we are being spiritually led to not buy into them, yet we have to play the game a little for natural physical survival. Well, I got to meet my angry side again, and so did the fam…. So that was interesting. We’ve all had some mood swings.

But, we’ve remained grateful and realistic. When these feelings come up, we usually wind up laughing at them in a matter of minutes. But because we still had some remnants of those old paradigm rules for happiness, we’d stuffed down the less savory emotions. So, Doug allows me to get all angry, and I allow him to say “Fuck” and we give Dougie his space to cry. Then we all have a laugh.

I thank the Gratitude Experiment for allowing us all to slow down and make this release possible.

The Results
So, let’s talk more about some concrete things that have happened for us in the last few days.
We took a jungle walk and discovered a swim-able beach haven that’s virtually secluded. It has a mediation hut built from palm trees, and the air is magnificently clean. This discovery came after me putting out the intention to help Dougie receive hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

The rest of the weekend flowed like a testimonial for “the Secret. I asked for a health food store in town, and suddenly a brand new one opened its doors. I asked for a kombucha scoby and was told that nobody here does that. Then, of course I met a woman who gave me… Not only a scoby and free bottle of home-made kombucha, but also some veggie culture starter. Wow! I thought… If I only had coconut kefir starter. Wouldn’t you know, she had some…. But she couldn’t give me any. So, I took a walk and met another woman who happened to be reading the Body Ecology book. Naturally, I calmed my enthusiasm, and in 2 minutes had her bringing me milk and water kefir grains, home made yogurt, coconut water kefir, and placing an order for Body Ecology starters and supplements. Now, it looks like I may soon be teaching a gut health class in Sayulita.

We like it so much here that we’ve stalled our plans for Ecuador a little. We were taking a walk talking about whether we should go to Ecuador at all, when we met Amy– someone who lived in Quito Ecuador for 6 months and highly recommends it. Sign?

Today, we were gifted with raw coconuts right from the tree too!

If you follow the stars, you know that Venus is in retrograde right now, which leaves many of us trying to filter out that which we don’t need in order to integrate the rest more harmoniously. We are doing lots of this here in Bliss Land. And we decided to spend less time online and more time living. I think this is going to make us even happier!

Check out our gratitude journal progression. And, hey — if you get inspired, join us and share too!
Yours in Bliss
Gina, Doug and Dougie

 

My Brave New World

I am starting a new world. Corporations and hierarchies don’t exist. We live with and for one another. We take care of our problems using the best solutions for the Collective One. We were only enforcing repressive rules yesterday as a means to pay the hierarchy and corporations, which were not making choices in the best interest of the people. We have outlawed that type of greed.

With a society that thinks only for the Collective, we have made it mandatory that our health concerns are addressed. Pharmaceutical suppliers are only making the healthiest options without worrying about pinching pennies and adding a neurotoxins to your bubble gum. Pharmaceuticals are in competition to create the most organic healing solutions for a conscious society. We love them for their commitment to us.

We use non-biased scientists and environmental conservationists to aid us in making correct choices on how we treat our Earth. Our politicians care more about the public then their own personal gain. We have our technology, but it is smarter for the body and spirit. Cell phones stop emitting toxic radiation. Lawns aren’t being sprayed with dangerous chemicals. We grow and produce things in a manner that is economically viable and effective for nourishment.

We have stopped trying to control Mother Nature, and are leaving her natural resources alone. It turns out that draining her of all of her nutrition and finding ways for it to go into the atmosphere wasn’t a great idea. The rain forests are growing back at an expeditious and unprecedented rate that is cleaning the air much sooner than anticipated. Soon we will be able to breathe fresh air again without concerning our immune functions.

Our neighbors are allowed to advocate in the streets again without cynicism. We are not only permitted to express our opinions, but we are encouraged to think for ourselves at all times. Doesn’t it make sense that an intelligent society made of innovative researchers and creative applicators would ensure health and a bright future for the One. Since the average man has the ability to talk safely about curing AIDS without worrying about upsetting poor medical options and big government, we have been spreading healing advice and practices for free across the globe.

We are rejoicing in the streets and getting closer to our friends and family, turning toward clean and renewable resources, and letting go of the ignorance that has been spoon fed to us since birth. It’s a beautiful world. Help me plant some trees and open up to the new system that breaks down old ineffective systems. The world is truly how we see it.

This is my new world. How would yours look.

Come On Get Happy

The type of HAPPY that you feel when you’re in alignment with your youest you is the kind that lasts. This is the kind that doesn’t  revolve around anyone else’s happiness. It’s natural feeling of joy, peace and gratitude that will flow through your body no matter what. And guess what? That vibration will actually inspire happiness in others without you doing anything at all.

 

What makes you happy? Feel it today!

Namaste,

Gina
