In December it is the time in the year for me to be in constant relationship to my “Things to Do” List. I am very inspired for some reason to have them on Yellow lined pads. It just feels right. Hand written, sometimes separate Lists going all at once: ISA a.k.a. Intuitive Arts & Sciences my healing practice, AMSI my real estate practice, and Home for things to do there or for me personally. Then, at the Holydays the auspicious Gifts List and Christmas Card Lists. Yes, I keep a hand written List for what I am going “To Do”.
In my teaching of Universal Spiritual principles over the last 27 years, I know that the first level of Manifestation is visualization. The second level is taking the vision out of the mental world, and putting into the physical. Since it is sometimes necessary to do things in steps (Rome was not built in a day), to write it down brings the intangible, alive in the tangible world. Journal writing, taking notes, poetry, essays, books, plays, songs…what ever form the words take, they create.
For months now I have wanted to share another To Do List. In the Spring, I was in a deep depression. Losing my job, having a love affair fall apart, living in a city that did not feel at home and not knowing how I was going to support myself, it was a very dark time. My closest family and friends, and even those not so close kept telling me to make lists. I was so depressed that I could barely get anything done in a day but worry. Then, worry about the fact I knew I should not be worrying!
As a Healer and long time Meta-physician, I know better. I know A LOT better than to be in fear. However, I am an animal human and Spirit living in this experience. My ability to change the stinking thinking was just not happening until I began to take steps to come home to the Bay Area. That decision was the best decision I could have made for healing the sadness in my soul. I came home both literally and figuratively.
In April, I did make a list. When I re-read it this fall, I surprised myself at the wisdom in the List. Even in that darkness, there was still a glimmer of light. Here is my List for Life. I hope it helps you where ever you are in your moment Now.
