Every morning I wake up with a sunny disposition and eagerness to take on my day. My routine is consistent and precise. I wake to the sounds of nature take a few moments to give thanks and gratitude to Source Energy, Ancestors and my Higher Self. I grab my Law of Attraction journal and plan out the events and tasks I am to complete for the day. I write out a few manifestation goals and recite my Affirmations. I take a moment to digest it all with 30 minutes of deep meditation and work it out with 30 minutes of Yoga. I activate my altar by burning some incense then light a candle and pay homage to my Ancestors and freshen up their food and drink offerings. I wrap it all up by burning some Sage and/or Paleo Santo as I prepare to wake up the rest of the household. Depending on the season I may open up the windows and doors to allow the energy to flow in and out as needed.
Breakfast consist of Green Tea or warm Lemon water with fresh Non-GMO and organic fruit and veggies, smoothies for my daughters and Avocado Toast. This is the only part of my routine where I may switch up periodically. I check in on the girls to see if they are up preparing for their day. If it’s the weekend, they will most likely sleep until its time to go to the market or any other weekend errands.
My day flows well throughout as I come and go. I absolutely love my Job. It affords me the financial support and creative energy to manage my businesses and personal life perfectly. I work with awesome, smart, kind and genuine people. The financial freedom and stability I have keeps my family passports active and our weekends luxurious. The best part of my finances is I don’t have to do much. Money flows to me in abundance even while I sleep and lounge. I keep the affluence of money going through my giving. As a philanthropist I teach my daughters new ways of giving back to our community and various charities.
This is me living a Life of Leisure through manifestation and alchemy. I am Living my Best Life! I take full responsibility and ownership of the life I live and all that goes on with it. I give no credit or blame to no one. Even in the rough times I create it all. That alone is the power of creation and the fuel to see it through. Now to the question most of you all are thinking. How did and/or do I achieve and maintain this all?
Allow me a moment or two of honesty. The truth is Life is how you see it and this is how I see my Life even if I fail to give offerings to my Ancestors today or devour a bowl of sugary cereal. This is how I see my Life regardless of how much I actually hate my job and regardless of how many times I had to rewrite my budgeting goals due to financial concerns. I’m actually pretty lucky if I can get one day out the week like this, let alone one day out the month, but I’m completely ok with that. I know despite appearances my life is exactly as it should be. It is with effortless ease and trust in the Universe that I surrender knowing the Universe bears no ill to me so I will bear no ill to it. It’s those perfect days that remind me of my goal. I remember and hold fast to my vision of a “Life of Leisure” so on my bad days I don’t get caught up in the moment. There is a quote that I look at daily for those days or moments when things seem to not go my way.
“Was it a bad day? Or was it a bad five minutes that you milked all day?”
You have to decide regardless of how emotionally hard it gets to not milk a whole day out of a bad five minutes. Do not allow one cloud to bring gloom to your whole day. See past or through the illusion. I credit this blog of Emotional Honesty to my horrible week at work and to the 2nd late payment notice that came in the mail just as I watched my credit score peak over in to the yellow. I also credit this to the $3600.00 dental bill due to the gap in insurance and the break down of both the washing machine and dryer in one week. Also, the misunderstanding and message that went lost in translation resulting in the silent treatment between the beau and me. I can’t forget to credit this to the will power that decided to go missing during my snack & TV binge last week. I’ll go ahead and give a shout out to the monkey mind during my meditation last night and last and definitely not least to the question this morning “Mommy, are you ever going to make it to one of my field trips this year?” …
Despite it all I see my “Life of Leisure”. Its here and more real than the “Illusionary Fuck Shit” we allow to weight us down (shout out to Tracy G”). So in closing, allow me to answer the question before my long moment of honesty.
How did and/or do I achieve and maintain this all?
…Emotional Honesty of course…
I allow my good days to be good days and my bad moments to be bad moments. I remember my vision and everyday I step more and more into it. Transparency is healing. When we stop the “Keeping up with the illusion” syndrome, we start to live a little more and more. I realize as I’m writing this, that if a past due notice and a bowl of sugary cereal is what’s causing me to not live out my “Life of Leisure”, then look here I’m closer than I think. Once you understand your “emotions” are the driving force behind your failures, disappointments and illusions you will start to see that it’s not the situation that’s the problem it’s your own perspective. You become honest about how you are truly feeling. You begin to take back your power to alchemize your life and allow the Emotional Honesty be the cure to a more jovial Life. So let’s get to the point. I know that some of the less desirable circumstances and people that can sometimes happen in our day to day can be distracting and frustrating to say the least. So let’s be emotionally honestly, eh? This is for those days when we just don’t fucking want to be Zen OK! How about we get ok with saying; “Fuck! Shit is all out of balance right now, where’s my muthinfuckin Sage and my muthinfuckin Crystals? I need to get this shit da fuck on and up out of here! Peace and muthinfucking Light to yo raggedy ass spirit, now get the fuck out my face while I balance these muthinfuckin energies, Bitch!”
