You will be very valued as my subscriber. Loved. Given gifts. Pampered. Welcome. :)
It was kind of a challenge for me, my coach drew my attention to this: I’m trying not to invalidate what-is, but then I don’t ask myself, how I want it to be, thus not opening this door to how it can be.
It’s like, when I was asking myself, what I want it to be, I was feeling like betraying the now, finding fault in it. And I didn’t want this feeling (either of it) to be there. I wanted to “be happy with what is and eager for more”, in somehow harmonious way.
And now I think I found a beautiful bridge: I’m asking on what is “How did it update my preferences?”
Then it feels like improvement, and there is in it ‘thank you’ to what is, and I can enjoy what-is, together with the feeling of this growing alignment and happiness into the future. Of this wonderful unfolding and happy flowing forward, being appreciative in the now.
I feel that there is more to it, and this is also a good feeling: that I can go and be with it more, and its beautiful nature will be unfolding to me as I
work pleasure with it.
Happy day :)
I came to see 9 principles Bashar mentions, the 9 unlimited powers we hold. They are:
9. Forget (the outdated, so that we could move forward)
Many things impressed me in this, but especially that immediately after “Perceive” there’s “Choose”: we see something? We immediately discern, if that’s what we prefer, and immediately choose, which vibration we now step into.
No going into “why I deserved this”, no doubting, if we deserve better, no “why I attracted this in the first place”, no arguing with the circumstances – just choosing, which vibration we prefer now, based on perceiving this experience and observing our feelings, and stepping into this vibration, now.
Sounds similar to what AH said, to immediately discern and “give our undivided attention” to the vibration we prefer.
I am choosing it now.
“Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different;
So much more than just what the title says, both of my post and of the video.
She speaks so down to Earth, knowing from inside all how it goes, addressing the most vulnerable places, offering solutions that feel good and satisfy and allow to go forward with loving, open heart.
Thank you, the world, for bringing it to me :)

Yes, this is an official jump, opening for me: I will be writing here about WordPress, too, and all my wonders with it. Especially when there’re so many. :)
Of course I’m continuing with all my self-coaching joy, AND I will be writing about my programming and other joys here, too. I am officially giving myself permission to it. :)
Why do I even need this permission? I just felt, that I as if feel, that the blog, the way it is, defines, what is to be written here. Yet, it is me, my blog, where I write what is essential joy for me, so what if from defining it as “self-coaching oriented”, it would be “all-that-interests-me” oriented? After all, this is what “Allowing Life” is :)
So, to the subject topic: I just found yesterday, that I can redefine the way WordPress works with scheduled tasks. Instead of running wp-cron.php on every page loaded, I found, that this mechanism can be disabled, and instead, wp-cron.php can be called from my server. Releasing the page loads, and also making this cron work more precise, more reliable.
The additional bonus of all that I just discovered, was that my server also gives me the option to be sent all output from those wp-cron.php runs. And it already helped me several times today – sending some reports on what I would not pay attention to myself, or just would not pay attention to that this soon, or wouldn’t find where it is, that soon, etc.
Besides, it’s just nice, to know that I am being kept notified. It is set in such a way, that when there is no output, it doesn’t send anything, so I only get emails useful for me.
And my feeling is – relief. I feel cared for. Easy. Knowing. Free. Loving. Excited with all these technologies that make our life easier and more convenient, add more comfort. Yay to us all :)
Other plugins I’m exploring now: WP Better Emails, SendGrid, WP eMember and several others. And you?
I was in a course these days, teaching some interesting inner work: I was being each of three me I found, it gave interesting perspectives.
During the process, what one of those me asked another, was to light a candle and be there, all three of us. (I also felt it could be applicable in Morning Pages.)
Then when that course part ended, I came to my table, and realized I have there an arrangement of three candles. I thought, wow how symbolic, and I lighted them all, and I was feeling this union, how each of us is herself, and our union, of those who each has her own viewpoint, strength, view of life.. Beautiful feeling.
AND (those who know me more, know I use that instead of ‘but’ – Bashar suggested it and I loved it) when the candles were extinguished, I had an unpleasant feeling – that those me, what, extinguished?
And then I realized, that we are (ok, I am) taught always to be in balance, wholeness, providing “the two parts of the coin” – to compare pluses and minuses of a situation, to see “bad and good,” right? “To embrace both sides of life,” you know.
But then I realized, that those sides we (I) can choose ourselves.
For example: I remember it distinctly, that Esther was told by Abraham not to be upset about bad feeling book reviews, but then not to pay too much attention to the good feeling reviews, either, as it was a complex (at least that’s how I understood it then – that it was because it was a complex, bound together, two sides of the same coin, which was dependence in others’ opinions. I don’t remember what exactly was told by AH – and then again, if each new moment we are in a new reality – then there is a new AH even in the past now, and nothing can be certain, nor that it should be).
But now I felt-and-thought, that we could just choose other two sides of the coin, and then we could enjoy them all!
In case for the candles, instead of two sides as:
(1) when the candle is lighting, my parts are alive, and
(2) when the candle is not, my part is not –
I could choose the following two sides:
(1) when the candle is lighting, I can feel this externalized (and internal, a union of external and internal) being me, symbolicness of it, and
(2) when the candle extinguishes, the parts of me are just internal, or they show up symbolically in something else, maybe in the whole world.
And with Esther, what if instead of the following two sides:
(1) there’re people who love her books
(2) there’re people who don’t love their books
instead she could choose the following, for example:
(1) there’re people who love her books – as readers
(2) she on her side loves her books – both as reader and writer (I certainly know the pleasure of both sides :))
Isn’t it much more powerful and enjoyable? And then it would open like a fractal, like a flower, developing itself further! What an exciting perspective!
And it’s done with this simple shift, of where to have the wholeness, the balance.
When on the next day of the course I shared this insight, the course trainer told me, it sounds like, in a very soft organic way, disassembling <something> (I don’t remember exactly her words, something like maybe point of view, or state, or me, or something), and then reassembling it anew, in a way that serves me more.
Slight difference, great change – all as I love. :)
Thank you for being with me in this. :)
