From Screwed to Hoorah! Day 55
it's a funny thing. You screw up. You give yourself a talking to. "Get a grip Romany, you know better than this!" You start again with tried and tested techniques.
And hey presto, they work! Who knew? Well, I did. That's why I've been doing them for the last fifteen years.
What am you even talking about? I hear you shout at the screen.
I'm talking about morning manifestation practice, I'm talking about changing your energy. I'm talking about sticking on a positive attitude no matter what!
The day before yesterday, Day 54, I thought I'd missed the deadline to apply for an Arts Council grant to write a new show. This was a big deal. If I actually got the grant it would pay me for four months to write a new show. After that, I could get another grant to tour theatres when they open again. For the first time this year, I was excited again about showbiz. For the first time, ideas had begun to pop and sizzle. I remembered how much I love writing, editing, creating, trying out.
Due to a detail too boring to tell you about here, I thought I'd missed the chance until next year. Damn! Enough is enough! It's time to be the magician of my own life again. It's time to consciously create.
Yesterday early, i wrote a list of 'Positive Aspects,' things I appreciate. My cottage, my healthy body, Walkabout, being cosy, a fire, breakfast, coffee. Then I wrote a list of the emotive 'feeling' words of what i want to create and experience, 'happy, healthy, joyful, laughing, loved, cosy, safe, secure, exciting, funny, easy." Then i wrote the 'story' of what I intend to create. You've heard it before.
"Spun Into Gold spins gracefully and easily to a million golden readers...."
Then i had a sudden impulse to get out of my armchair. I had the sudden idea to get up, get moving, get some fresh air and get something concrete done rather than working towards a nebulous goal. I told Walkabout i would come with him to the Buddhist centre and do some gardening.
For the entire morning, I cut back winter overgrown bushes, tidied up dry fuschia sticks and raked old leaves into piles. Oh, that felt better. The air had a new promise of spring about it and soon I was warm enough to work in a T-shirt. Then in the garden, the phone rang. It was a journalist who wants to put the story of me trying to bring Ruzha the dog to England into the national press. Last week, a local journalist put the story in the Ulverston Mail. We only raised an extra £20.
But you never know how magic will work. You have to keep the faith. Keep believing, Assume as if what you want to create is real already. When I go on a daily walk, I literally imagine I am holding Ruzha's lead and call to her softly. It's only a matter of time before she's really here.
And now, hopefully this story and my appeal to get Ruzha to the UK will be seen by thousands in a daily paper on Friday or this weekend. Who knows what will happen then? I'm ready to fly over there to get her, to do whatever it takes. I've got the Gofundme Page up to date, let the Universe do the rest!
And that wasn't all!
But that's enough for today, I'll tell you more tomorrow!
I have more good news!
Remember, if you want to create something, write down the story of it, imagine the emotions you will feel when it happens, then confidently wait for it to be so. Magic!
Love love love
