For those journeying down the self-help or personal development path, the varying schools of thought and perspective and growing selection of books and teachings can feel overwhelming at times. Plus, it’s important that what you’re learning feels good, resonates with your spirit and connects deeply with your true self. In all my years of self-help study I've never been so excited to suggest teachings as I am now with Inspirations: Marianne Williamson on Divine Compensation. Marianne conveys her principals in such a way that makes my brain simultaneously jolt to life with excitement and my soul sigh with deep, profound relief. This interview is centered on Marianne’s recently released book, The Law of Divine Compensation, and here are just a few of the shining moments from the talk…
Your Homie, The Universe
Marianne stresses the importance of resting assured that we live in a Universe that is continuously self-organizing and correcting to ensure each one of us is thriving in our absolute highest form. Let me say again, the Universe is made up of this magical, yummy, divine energy that’s programmed to allow everything to flow and thrive at the highest level of creative manifestation. So if we know the Universe has our back-- that it's our true homie--the question then becomes, are you getting in your own way? We've got to do our part to work with the Universe, and we do that by making sure our thoughts and beliefs are aligned with spirit, not the fear-based ego. Are your thoughts focused on miracles, gratitude, love, plentitude and new possibilities, or lack, fear, anger, and resentment? The realm you identify with will be the one that is your reality.
Let Those Miracles Flow!
If our thoughts and energy alignment are such vital components to our thriving, it’s important that we know key steps to ensuring we’re inviting miracles in:
• Discipline Your Mind! We must be aware and in charge of our own thoughts and redirect when our pesky ego tries to trip us up on our path to amazingness. Just remember: love over fear, love over fear, love over fear.
• Forgive! What blocks miracles are thoughts of anger and resentment, so be honest with yourself and if there’s anyone you know you need to offer forgiveness to, invest in learning how to do it and work towards it--if for no other reason than it being vital to your own success in life!
• Meditate! Through the centering and calming of our heart and mind, we can see so much clearer. I find it most helpful to meditate first thing in the morning which sets a peaceful, refreshed tone for the entire day. As Marianne puts it, “get lifted so miracles shift your way.”
Lastly, I encourage you to not only watch this amazing interview but also read Marianne’s book because the magnitude of powerful tips and teachings will blow your mind. I will leave you with this--life is not about deciding or creating who you want to be, but remembering who you already are! We have within us all the divine power needed but we must work it, ESPECIALLY when we are triggered and pulled into fear, anger or ego. That is when we must pledge to ourselves to put into action the mental skill sets we have studied and developed from our time on our fantastic, personal development voyage! After all, that’s the entire point of our journey, right? To practice what we've learned when moments are tough and it matters most! Stay blessed.
