"If it is only a dream, why is pain so real?" "A dream head struck against a dream wall causes dream pain. A dreamer is not cognizant of the hallucinatory fabric of a dream until he awakens. Similarly, man does not understand the delusory nature of the cosmic dream of creation until he awakens in God." Paramahansa Yogananda

Telling Our Story

"True Wonderment" Collection of Janet Brown

"Start telling a better-feeling story about the things that are
important to you. Do not write your story like a factual documentary,
weighing all the pros and cons of your experience, but instead tell
the uplifting, fanciful, magical story of the wonder of your own life
and watch what happens. It will feel like magic as your life begins
to transform right before yours eyes, but it is not by magic. It is
by the power of the Laws of the Universe and your deliberate
alignment with those Laws." Abraham-Hicks

Every time we think about our lives we have choices about
the way we tell it. We can go down a road that tells a sad story
or we can go down the road of wonder and richness. In the past
I told a sad story much of the time and guess what!?! I kept
having a sad life. When I read Abraham-Hicks' book Money and
the Law of Attraction
I was stopped by the very first paragraph
which says
"Your money and financial assets; your body's state of wellness,
clarity, flexibility, size and shape; your work environment, how
you are treated, work satisfaction, and rewards-indeed the very
happiness of your life experience in general-is all happening
because of the story you tell. If you will let your dominant intention
be to revise and improve the content of the story you tell every
day of your life, it is our absolute promise to you that your life
will become that ever improving story. For by the power of the
law of attraction it must be!"

The day I read this I went off in to my studio and sat down and
re-wrote the story of my life and was amazed what a blessed
and magical life I came up with. Just my inner world alone was
enough for me to feel incredibly fortunate. Then there was the
beautiful place I live, the art that comes through me, the amount
of art I have sold, I just went on and on. Except for moments
when I wake up in the dark of night and the shadow has a hold
of me, I have never looked back. Life, as a result has been ever

What a great post! Thank you, this means so much for me.....

I, too, am trying to leave behind the sad story that I have been telling myself. I know that if I change my way of thinking that my life will change. This is a good reminder. I have walked away from arguments in the last couple of days because of this realizing that happiness comes from within and it doesn't matter where I am, if I move, whom I am with...if I don't change, nothing will. Thanks again.

Katherine said...

Momo Luna you do my heart good by saying that. Thank you.

Teri it is so profound and pervasive isn't it. Wherever we go we take us with us. In The Vortex by Abraham-Hicks they talk about even if we are going to make a change we need to make the changes in ourselves 1st or we will recreate the same experience all over again.

Thinking on these very same topics you talk about in this post (having read other books, other authours, etc, but with that idea of story in my mind) I posted this http://wwwaleph-aleph.blogspot.com/2010/04/how-many-times-have-you-already-told.html sometime ago.
I liked your words and concepts.

Katherine said...

Aleph I will go read your post, thank you and thank you for visiting.

On the way back from our holiday we stopped off at a wonderful little Well Being shop. I was so taken with the artwork on a deck of Abraham-Hicks, Well-Being cards that I bought them. Just reading the words on these cards puts me into a positive frame of mind for the rest of the day.

Katherine said...

Robyn welcome back. I really like those cards. I them and a set of cards from the Course in Miracles. Between the two of them they can get me through just about anything.
