Happy Monday!

If there is ever a day in May Cause Miracles that I miss its today. Its Monday and the first day during our course that we have to wake up a little bit earlier and get on that meditation pillow. Thats why for this round, I picked starting on a holiday weekend. You get a little extra cushion to get on that cushion...haha! 

Yesterday we were observers witnessing our fears and many of you shared your fears openly with us in the group. I feel very grateful to each of you because I know your impact. Keep sharing, stay open and engaged. 

Today we focus on opening up, we are willing to change. We are willing to see things differently, willing to see love. When we become willing to change, we surrender to a greater perception, a loving perception. Be willing to see your fears differently. Its easy to get irritated with our ego, viewing it like the enemy. Its not the enemy, your ego is doing what it does best and its been doing a great job for a long time.

At the beginning of my spiritual journey I hit a point where I felt really annoyed with my ego, in fact I hated it. After some soul searching I realized that my ego hating my ego was a self love problem and it wasn't everyone else and every past situation I couldn't control keeping me stuck but it was me. I had a self love problem and whether it was a family member, a life event, or my ego that I was blaming, blaming wasn't solving my problem. I dropped the blame game and realized that MY problems were MY accountability and so was MY happiness. 

Helping others has been the gateway to freeing my own fears. These days I view my ego for exactly what it is and when it comes up send it some love and let it go. I have learned the art of acceptance and accountability and I get the opportunity each day to practice this practice. I choose to see my fears differently because I choose to see love. That choice is a subtle shift we call a miracle. 

I live a miracle mindset life but that doesn't mean I no longer struggle or have low (very low) moments, because trust me I do. I deal with my shit much different now than I did 3-4 years ago - when I feel like I am drowning I turn to my tools, this book, music, my breathe, my ING, my guides, etc...

May Cause Miracles was the map that put it all together for me and gave me structure that offered a clear path to the happiness and love I craved desperately. It all starts with a little awareness and a desire for something better. 

Stay open, stay willing, stay thirsty for clarity and freedom. Don't let a difficult morning, bad traffic, or a sleepless night be the reason you skip a day. You owe this to yourself and the benefits are too sweet.

Be sure to set your alarms throughout the day, check into the group periodically, set todays photo as your background on your phone/computer, spread the good vibes and share on social media! WE got this! We are willing to see this differently, we are willing to see love.

GIVEAWAY TIP: For every insta photo you share throughout our journey you will receive an EXTRA entry towards our giveaway. Make sure to use the hashtag #MiracleTribe & TAG me in the photo @MagnoliaRose

May Cause Miracles - we begin tomorrow!

May Cause Miracles starts tomorrow morning! If you are not in our group you can learn more about it > HERE < and request to join > HERE <  

In a nutshell were replacing fear with love through subtle daily shifts using my very favorite book May Cause Miracles by Gabby Bernstein. This book changed my life and ive had dozens of you ask for an "accountabilabuddy" - my #MiracleTribe has been going strong for about a year now and its one of the most fulfilling side gigs I have! 

This round I am bringing it to the blog, but the greatest convos happen in our group with the tribe. I invite you to join us! 

Heres the scoop...

Every morning I will be posting my long novel thoughts here and linking it in the group. The group post will be shorter including the affirmation + the photo reminder along with a quick thought on what our focus is each day. 

My intention is to guide you, inspire you and support you. I am here to hold you accountable and be a resource for YOU.

This is YOUR course, I get the honor of witnessing a piece of your journey and we all gain from opening up, sharing, and connecting. Honesty and vulnerability is my jam and I love facilitating a safe space where we can express our most authentic selves. We need a space where we can be real and be loved for it with no judgement and no fear.

I am here for you. Throughout our journey, please please please let me know your thoughts, feelings, feedback etc...Ask for help, ask questions, share your thoughts. I ask for your engagement because although I am a HUGE believer in what this book will do for you, its actually more about the impact you'll have on others through your journey throughout the book and after. 

This book has changed my life. Similarly to how Gabby references A Course In Miracles and the impact its teachings has had on her. This book is my ACIM. I 100% believe in this guide and I know how powerful it is because it continues to change my life every time I do it.

I would NOT be where I am without it and I know it found me when I needed it the most.

Reminder of the few things you need...

-Your book

-A pen

-Journal

-Optional: Meditation space, tea, music, headphones, candles, crystals, incense, etc...customize your experience with what feels right.

*Pages 8-14 give you the details on how this book works. These pages are valuable if you are going to skip the intro ;)

Few thoughts for you before we begin...

-A Miracle is a shift in perspective. Its shifting from fear to love. You will hear this reference often.

-There will be some ACIM quotes, references, etc...throughout the book, if you are not sure what something is referring to ASK! 

-ING is a greater power Gabby refers to as inner guide. Its essentially love or a presence of love. This can be whatever it means for you - god, goddess, energy, love, light, mother earth, etc...whatever it means to you is true for you.

-Shit might come up for you. When you find yourself getting a bit resistant roll with it, vibe with it, accept it and send it love. Its your ego doing what it does best, its detected a potential threat and its trying to protect you. Let your feelings be what they are, honor them, feel them and keep going. Don't stop because things get uncomfortable for a second.

-Shit might NOT come up for you right away. Give yourself time, stay open, stay consistent and stay committed. I didn't have my holy fuck moment until round 2. Keep going. 

-At some point you will experience a shift where you are so excited and you want to start coaching your friends, your family, your spouse, your coworkers etc...DONT. Be the lighthouse, be an example. If you are like me, you'll get stoked to share your new found miracle mindset and the oversharing begins. Simply accept others where they are at and focus on your own development. Often the sharing falls on deaf ears and you end up feeling unsupported or frustrated. Your energetic impact will make a difference by itself. 

-When you don't want to wake up and meditate or you feel exhausted and would rather watch TV at the end of the day. Witness your ego resisting and get your ass up...

*Side note: realistically you might have a day here and there where you are legit running late and need to get out the door. Take the book with you and read that days passage in the bathroom or in your car. You can meditate ANYWHERE! You'll also have my post for the day to keep you on track!

Also...Each day is planned out with Saturdays open for repeating any days you feel may need more attention.

-Lastly! Pay attention to your intuition and the subtle synchronicity happening around you. This book is rad and the Miracle Mindset is fucking magic! I am stoked for you and I cant wait to get started. 

I cannot thank each of you enough for showing up. Not just for yourself but for those around you. As you begin to live a miracle minded life filled with love, so do those around you. Your energy field is magnetic and powerful! I know my vibe needs a revamp right now, thanks for being here. 

The world needs your light and I am so unbelievably proud to be apart of your journey.

So thank you & see you babes tomorrow morning! 

Much love!!
