Lesson #8:

Flowing from my heart, is gratefulness; and it feels so good!

Unveiling Our Union

Happiness is not yellow, it’s blue

For more information: Reach out to Jackie Dawson at Totem Butterfly at http://www.totembutterfly.com

I feel that most people think about happiness as a feeling that is burst out of your chest, where your cheeks hurt from smiling so much and you feel so carefree. The feeling like you could walk on water and fly. It is effortless and easy. Even though the smiley faces we have become so familiar with are yellow, I have learned that happiness is actually blue. I want to challenge this way of thinking because I think it is creating an unrealistic expectation for happiness. I have been through a lot of pain in my life time, and I am sure I am not alone. Maybe you have gone through some pain yourself and feel like you are never going to get to that bright yellow smiley face again.

Is There a God? (What’s that burning feeling?)

Someone asked me if I believe in God. Good question.

There is so much hate, and sorrow, and natural disasters that wipe out entire towns…babies dying, hungry children, distraught mothers, persecuted fathers, neglected animals…the list of horrible things in our world is long and ugly.

 

But when you think about it, all of these things have an “origin” somewhere in the human experience…It’s called cause & effect.

When I examine the anatomy of the human eye, the change of day to night, the burning feeling inside of me when I think about someone I love, the growth process of a seed into a blooming plant, aquatic life in the oceansWho is doing this?

 

Why does the sun rise? Where do the planets come from? How does that baby form inside Mommy’s tummy?

There are times when a warm feeling comes over me that I can’t explain. It feels like my heart is going to burst. I’m crying for no apparent reason. I think of someone suffering, that I don’t even know, and it bothers me! Where do these feelings come from?

Do I believe in God? Truth is, I feel God. I talk to God, and whether or not others trust me, I trust that God hears and answers me, because my decisions feel right and have “right” results. Yes, I trust that feeling.  Our bodies will grow old and eventually decay. But the feelings never die. Eternity is real.

Someone once said, “You may forget what someone says, you may forget what they did. But you’ll never forget how they made you feel.”

Singing to Relieve Stress

Music, as we all know, is THE Universal language. It can soothe the savage! That said…

Singing can have a profound effect on how we feel. singout

 

There are people who don’t have a beautiful, melodious voice. Actually, my daddy sounded terrible!

But he loved to sing, nevertheless. He’d confine himself to the shower, or the bedroom with the door closed.

But the breathing that’s involved, the thought process to get the words (almost) right, and just the thought of a melody in your head, will reduce your stress-level, and elevate your spirit.

Try it…  

…Any song will do!

Overcoming Fear: The Power of the Law of Attraction

There’s a simple way to overcoming fear of singing in public, and using a microphone to amplify your Vocal Gift!

This is what happened to me…

 

Time: 1968

Place: New Orleans, LA

Sitting in the back row of the choir, one day, I began to daydream about being in front of the microphone, singing to a crowd.

I listened and enjoyed the soloist, as she led the choir in rehearsal, and looked forward to Sunday morning, when we’d all get to “show-off” our talents!

After rehearsal, I went home, went into my bedroom, closed the door, and stood in front of the mirror, holding my hair brush as though it were a microphone. Then I got an idea… 

I chose my favorite album, put it on the Hi-Fi,

…and when the music began, I resumed my place in front of the mirror, holding my hair brush, and singing my heart out! No fear. No worries, or cares about how I sounded. Just free, carefree, joyous singing.

Before long, the bedroom door opened. Only, I didn’t hear it, nor did I hear anyone enter the room. Instead, I continued to sing, as my intruder took a quiet seat on the side of my bed.

When the song ended, I heard, “That was lovely.” perfectpitch1

I turned in surprise, and all I could manage to say was, “Mama!”   I don’t know if I was embarrassed, or just annoyed.

But after hiding for so long, the very thing I wanted to share,

…here’s what I discovered.

      …the power of belief works to attract into our reality, those things that we think about! 

 (Remember, I had been daydreaming about singing in front of others, without fear or hesitation!)

“What things so ever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Saint Mark 11:24

Do you Have a deep desire? 

Try God. Believe. Pray….Be Grateful. Then… 

Do this:

  1. Write down on paper the thing you want.
  2. Turn the paper onto the other side, & list steps toward making it happen…leaving space between each step.
  3. Now, go through each step, & fill-in the details that need to happen to make each step occur.
  4. …AND now
  5. TAKE ACTION
  • Find a song you like.
  • Find a place to rehearse, alone.
  • Find someone you trust to listen to you sing the song.
  • Record yourself.
  • Tell someone about your recording!
  • Remind yourself that you CAN do all things through Christ, Who gives you strength.
  • Repeat.

If you truly believe that you have already received the thing you desire, your actions will reflect it.  (This rule, actually, refers to everything! That’s how the Law of Attraction works!)

Think it, Do it, & Have it!
