"M" is for Mindfulness
Margie: Barbara, why did you think of “attention” when we started to talk about “M” being for mindfulness?
Barbara: Well, Margie, much of the time, when people talk about mindfulness, they are talking about their meditation practice and I’m all for it! But when I think of being mindful, in the context of our wish practice, it’s all about paying attention - being mindful - of my vibration, my emotional state.
Margie: Oh, Barbara! I’m reflecting back to our journal and the prompts for being attentive that we provided in it. Like, “Ways abundance is flowing into my life…” I see that the current of “paying attention” has been carried through our practice and our writing!
Barbara: That’s right! Just the other day, I was reading Dr. Joe Dispenza’s book You are the Placebo, and he makes a point that putting our attention on gratitude fills our body-mind-spirit with the positive vibration of gratitude - such that there is no room for anything else; especially the negative. And don’t we emphasize, as part of our practice, to regularly notice, celebrate, and embody gratitude for all the good that flows into our lives?
Margie: Early in my wish practice, I incorporated a gratitude - or gratefulness - list as a way of acknowledging the success of that practice. By acknowledging what abundance has flowed in by means I could not have imagined, it fills my heart with awe, joy, trust, and hope.
Barbara: Yes! That for me is the very nature of being mindful - consciously counting my blessings every day and filling any empty space in my being with that awe, joy, trust, and hope you so eloquently described. From there, I am able to launch any wish - any of my heart’s desires - into the Universe with confidence that I will receive what serves my highest good.
Margie: In essence, mindfulness, as we’ve described it, gives me the gift of being able to release control on the “how” my wishes will come true and accept that whatever comes serves the best for me and everyone concerned.
Barbara: Brilliant! Next week, we will answer the question “how do I know the truth of my desire?”
Peace and All Good
