Why it’s time to press the play button
“A little nonsense now and then is cherished by the wisest men.”—Roald Dahl
This morning–Monday bright and early–I was invited to a party. I don’t think the hosts called it that. Officially, it’s a weekly mastermind group started by four life coaches who call in from all over the country to talk “possibility.”
Because they’re currently reading E-Squared and going through the experiments, they graciously invited me on to the call. Since “I’m just a girl who cain’t say no” to anybody talking about intentions and law of attraction and well, anything that’s fun, I, of course, said, “I’d love to.”
They shared a great story about the Volkswagen Jetta Principle, the one that states: “You impact the energy field and draw from it according to your beliefs and expectations.”
Rather than looking for yellow butterflies and sunset beige cars, two of my suggestions that many readers took quite literally, they showed a little initiative and decided they, as a group, were going to find orange boats and priests.
First off, I LOVE their creativity. How fun are priests and orange boats!
And since, well, they’re “professional manifesters” (most coaches are well-versed in most of these principles), all four easily found orange boats and priests, even the coach who lives in Arizona, far from a body of water.
So, here’s the take-away:
Hit the play button. Together, the four of them, made this principle really fun. As Linda Ryan, said “I was almost giddy with excitement.” Jean Kuhn, another one of these amazing coaches, joked that she found herself smiling eagerly at every man walking down the street, hoping for a priest collar. And one of them even found a troll doll dressed like a priest. Who knew?
What you’re looking for might be right under your nose. As Linda shared on her blog post, “Within 30 seconds of deciding on orange boats and priests, I became aware of how much orange was within five feet of me. It had been there all along, but I didn’t notice it until we started talking about it.”
One of the things I’m writing about in E-Cubed, the new book I’m currenly writing for Hay House, is the fact that everything necessary for electricity was available even during cavemen times. They just didn’t know to a) look for it or b) how to put the principles together.
The good news is we do!! And we’re learning how to use these spiritual principles to make a world that works for everyone.
Your preconceived notions tend to get in the way. One of my playmates on the call was at a marina during her 48 hours and thought, “Hmm, this should be easy. I’ll find an orange boat here.” Instead, she found it in a catalog.
She also decided to drive down a street where she knew there was a Catholic church. “Never know when a priest could emerge.”
Instead, she was led to a photograph of Buddhist monks…..wearing, you guessed it, bright orange.
The point is that once we decide HOW our intentions will manifest, we put a big straitjacket around the Field of Potentiality, giving it exactly one avenue to deliver our gifts.
The F.P. is infinite and has gazillions (actually way more) of avenues to deliver your blessings and miracles.
Why would I want to give it my ideas which, as I repeatedly have pointed out, are invariably teensy-weensy compared to infinitude.
So, I just want to reiterate. Spiritual principles are meant to provide joyful, big-ass fun, not a bunch of rules and regulations.
This is a party, folks, a love train and together we can turn this orange boat around.
