What I Know For Sure

This post includes a direct quote from Oprah’s “What I Know for Sure” column in the January, 2011 edition of O Magazine.  I hold great respect for this woman because she is a true example of manifesting her dreams and knowing the power behind “divine love” and the law of “giving and receiving”. 

“By now you’ve probably heard the Internet rumors about the year 2012.  Or maybe you saw 2012, the movie starring John Cusack as a man trying to survive the end of the world.  (Remember the line from the movie’s ads  ‘We Were Warned’).  For those of you not familiar with the prophecies of global change (based partly on the cycles of the Mayan calendar), suffice it to say that some people predict a cataclysmic collaspse of human civilization, while others foresee a time of spiritual transformation.

“Of course no one knows what will actually happen in 2012, but one thing I do know for sure is the power of intention.  And I intend to approach this year as one of great promise.  No doomsday for me:  I’m going to do my part, within myself and within the world, to bring about a shift that lets us live more authentically, more lovingly, more intuitively, more creatively, and more collaboratively.  That is my idea of spiritual evolution.  Of a spiritual revolution!

“I choose to see it as the dawning of a new year of alignment, because with alignment comes enlightenment.  When you’re aligned with your heart’s desire, when you’re in sync with who you’re meant to be and how you’re supposed to contribute in our magnificent Earth, you feel a shift in perception.  You start to notice that miracles show up regularly.

“Some people call these miracles, coincidences or serendipity.  I like to call them marvelisms.  Because when I’m doing everything I’m meant to do to keep my mind, body and spirit whole (which for me means meditating twice a day, eating healthy, and exercising at least one hour daily), I constantly marvel at how other experiences fall into place.  It’s as though that beautiful line in Paulo Coelho’s novel “The Alchemist” comes true:  ‘When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.’

“It could be something as simple as thinking about tomato soup–and suddenly a producer walks by and says, ‘I picked up some tomato soup at lunch and now I don’t want it.  Do you?  It’s still warm.’

“Or really needing a massage and then, when I’m at Starbucks, running into the masseuse I haven’t seen since last year.

“I try to take no encounter or experience for granted.  Everything happens in accordance with how we think and what we choose.  Yet I do marvel that life, year after year, keeps revealing the best of itself–if we’re willing to see it that way.

“Here’s to staying open to all this year has to offer!”  –  OPRAH”

I found Oprahs words so true to my experience.  The purpose of this blog is to have my readers learn to have the best that life can offer you everyday of your life.  None of us needs to be living under a cloud of “doomsday” mentality.  You can choose to brush that cloud away and be in gratitude that God will start bringing more “sunshine” into your daily life. 

The key to start is believing that you are WORTHY of having an incredible life.  The past is past, the future is yet to be written, TODAY is your PRESENT — enjoy every bit of it!

A blessing and the best of a NEW YEAR to you!

    I as well as my friends have already been checking the nice procedures from the blog while all of the sudden developed an awful suspicion I had not thanked the blog owner for those tips. Most of the men are actually passionate to read through all of them and have surely been using them. Appreciate your getting really accommodating and for pick out variety of high-quality subjects most people are really desirous to learn about. Our own honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to you sooner.
