I am finding that when I work it, it works me. I am focusing on the 11th step (Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge for His will for us and the power to carry that out) right now, and I am being bombarded with gentle nudges from my higher power.
I went to a meeting a couple Saturday’s ago where they read from a daily meditation, and the entire meeting was about brining harmony in lieu of disharmony. For me this was a reminder of the 11th step prayer!
When I am uneasy or I am getting ready for something important, I am most definitely picking up my tool of prayer. God make me a channel. God make me your agent. God run my tongue and speak through me.
Unfortunately, I am finding myself also full of intentions, but not much action on the meditation part of this step. I am stuck in thinking mode. I signed up for this self paced mindfulness meditation class, so if I don’t do that then I do nothing? Well, that’s not working. I am also still getting the nudges to just make time for it and do it anyway.
Nudge – People I know sharing stories about incorporating meditation in their lives.
Nudge – I am seeing articles pop-up on benefits of mindfulness.
Nudge – I show up to meetings and the topic is related to meditation
Nudge – I can feel the pull to do it!
I know that when I ignore the nudges, the volume of my God increases.The universe will increase the intensity of the push and the pull that I feel toward meditation and it will eventually win.
Praying tonight to just surrender willingly.
