I love my recording.  I listen to it almost constantly.  The music makes my heart flip, just like it flips when I catch a view of the Olympic Mountains.

And around here, in the Pacific Northwest,  any view includes water – my favorite is the southern end of the Hood Canal in the Union area.  Yes, this is definitely part of my DMP.


Below is from a blog I wrote over a year ago.  At the time I was doing a lot of training to run marathons.  I want to share this because it is reminds me of the wonders that come when you are in the flow.  The outcome of the race I was training for was also serendipitous – I received an award for being the first finisher in my age category (I had, unknowingly, moved into the next age bracket).  To be completely transparent, when I asked how many were in that bracket, I found out there was a total of ONE – ME!!!  Hey, I will take it!!!  I am first out of ONE!!!  How appropriate for this Hero’s Journey – becoming my very best self!!!

Back to the recording.   I love the music so much, I wanted to make sure it would play continuously through all my readings.  After I completed my recording, it turned out to be 62 minutes long!  I read everything three times, pausing in between, and using expressive tones.  Have I said I love my recording?

I was excited to have something both productive and positive to listen to as I trained for a running event at the end of this year.  My training schedule required I break up the distance into 5 minute increments.  Well, how was I to do that?  I don’t have a fitness apparatus, apart from my phone.  

The solution came in a SIT.  The piece of music I recorded is 5 minutes and 6 seconds long.  Perfect!  I use the music as a timing tool.

Without even orchestrating it, I am engaging multiple types of learning, making numerous combinations, and accomplishing things on my POA card.  I am taking action – DOing IT NOW!!!

And, while I am getting in my run, I see shapes everywhere – green triangles in the tops of the evergreens; red circles in tail lights; yellow squares in traffic signs; and blue rectangles in house numbers.

The great encouragement of this week is: “The principle which gives the thought the dynamic power to correlate with its object, and therefore to master every adverse human experience, is the law of attraction, which is another name for love.  This is an eternal and fundamental principle, inherent in all things, in every system of Philosophy, in every Religion, and in every Science.  There is no getting away from the law of love. It is feeling that imparts vitality to thought.  Feeling is desire, and desire is love.  Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.” Haanel, 12:18

Tattooing the 7 Laws of the Mind on my heart, has resulted in ONE LOVE.  I am understanding more and more how important LOVE is, beginning with the exercise of looking in the mirror, saying the Gal in the Glass, and telling my reflection (ME), ‘I love you’.  Then 50 minutes in front of myself, speaking my one sentence DMP with feeling – It is feeling that imparts vitality of thought – my subby has no defense!

Combining 12+ weeks of lessons, exercises, and sits without and within gives me power, courage, and faith.


I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.
