Today is a momentous day for lots of people in the New Thought world. At least according to the emails I received. Here’s the gist of it:
Now, when you think about an all-day “Cosmic Trigger Event,” what might come to mind is, say, an old couple driving a Cadillac Bonneville at approximately 28 miles per hour in front of you ALL DAY LONG. (At least that’s what I thought.)
But this trigger event is a different kind of trigger. This is one that has a lot of people on guard with their thoughts. Read on from one of my emails.
So, when I woke up today, I remembered the giant UV ray. At first I asked my husband if we would need extra sunscreen (SPF 1,000,000?).
Then I realized that I was in kind of a low mood. I had had an intense performance over the weekend, and I was pretty drained. I was tempted to charge into my day pell-mell and not think twice. But then, the GIANT UV BEAM came to my mind. (A fellow blogger (and now friend) Heather Fougnier wrote to me from a conference in Malibu where she is teaching. She said that Louise Hay is in attendance and that today would be a day of major meditation and intention.)
So, instead of allowing my mood to dictate my day, I meditated and did my index cards and began the day in a better place. I even listened to Louise Hay while I was working out. (You know, just in case, right?)
But then I began thinking about this. Why should this day be different from any other day? (I created my own kind of New-Age seder out of the whole thing.) If we have no earthly idea whether or not there’s really a giant UV beam magnifying our intents a million-fold, why not pretend that this is happening every day?
You’ve probably heard the expression “You can’t afford the luxury of a negative thought.” (Today, that would really be the case.) I do believe the idea that collapsing into negativity is kind of a luxury, and not a good luxury. Do I live my every moment by it? Not always. I have occasional negativity binges the same way I used to chow down on Oreos and pizza (and Cracker Jack and ice cream and Cheetoes).
But the moment I recognize that I’m doing it and become clear that negativity is kind of a luxury and a default, I find my way back somehow. Then I look around and say, “Oo. Now, that couldn’t have been good for anyone!”
And that’s what the giant UV beam does for me today. I look around and think, “Hey. Who knows? Why don’t I shift out of this worry and fear? Today, I’m a happy camper and wild abundance and trees and clean water and happy positive people and good things are right here.” (I’m wondering if the people involved in Steve Pavlina’s Million Dollar Experiment are now attracting a million Million dollars?)
UV Beams Everyday!
So why not play that game every day? Why not send yourself an email every morning with that same idea? If the Law of Attraction is true, then it matters just as much. Make it High Stakes Positive Thinking. Not so that you’ll run around in a place of fear. But so that you’ll live in a place of power. You’ll say, “Whoa! Do I really want that thought amplified a million times in my life? No way!” And you’ll change it. You’ll be more aware.
Before I perform, I do a ritual in my dressing room. I get silent. I call on the divine committee. (I call it a committee because a friend of mine who had been in NA laughed for about an hour when I told him all the beings I called forth when I pray. He said, “Hello? Christine! I think you’ve got your bases covered. You don’t need a whole committee!” I told him I didn’t want any of the deities to feel left out.) I ask for my highest self to be the performer that night. I find my center. I breathe. And I simply know that the night is not about me. It’s about a higher place than that. Then I walk out and play. It’s not a long process. But it’s a powerful one.
So, at one time I thought, Why don’t I do that everyday? Why is it just the stage that should call forth that level of clarity from me? Why not ask the Little Me to move to the side every morning?
So, now when I do this ritual, I operate from such a better space. I always notice the difference. Always. Try it. Begin your day setting that level of intent.
Remember You’re Not a Victim
Be it a Giant UV Beam or a theatre filled with people, I am wary of anything that makes you think that some giant outside thing will “happen to you.” You really do have the reigns in every situation, even if it’s simply the translation of the event. Mercury Retrograde, for instance, has never been an issue for me. (I bought my last house during Mercury Retrograde, and nothing went wrong. I loved my house.) In the case of the giant UV Ray, however, you do have a choice in that you are the thinker of your thoughts all day long.
So, for this October 17th Cosmic Trigger Event, I say, let’s make the most of it. Use it. Amplify your thoughts a million-fold everyday. Begin your day knowing that you have that kind of power.
