In all of my Change The Brain projects over the years, there were two key elements.  My optimism and my open-mindedness.  I genuinely believed each time that it would work (no matter what “it” happened to be).

             There may be some who think “trying” isn’t close enough to “doing” to make it count, but I’m not one of them.  And apparently, neither is the Universe.

             Here’s what I woke up to this morning:

attempting our success.

             So much of what we set out to do is in the attitude.  But also, it’s in the trying.  When we create the intention, when we hold solidly to the very idea, we are already on our way.

             To make an effort, that’s really the first step.  And that’s also part of our success.  We’ve begun to think in that direction, we’ve set the thought.  Our action will follow.

             And even if the end result isn’t what we were aiming towards (and it usually isn’t), we know that it was a winner because we DID something.  We tried.  And that makes it successful.

             As we step away from our regular rotation for this daily draw, we are reminded of how OKAY it is to move forward/learn/heal, as long as do so with an open heart, leaving fear behind.

“You Are Safe  ~

Archangel Michael:

‘I am protecting you against lower energies, and guarding you, your loved ones, and home.’

Additional Message:

‘Let go of worries, as I am surrounding you, your loved ones, home, and possessions with powerful loving light.

This light repels lower energies, and attracts loving experiences.  Focus on this light and love – instead of on fear – as you will attract the object of your focus.

With your mind free of fear, you have additional time and energy to devote to your life’s missions.  You are free when you are fearless.

Know that you are safe at all times, and that my protection is flawless.’

Working with Archangel Michael:

Michael’s chief role is to escort away the lower energies of fear.  If you become worried or anxious, mentally ask Michael to bring you peace.  You can also ask that he clear your home, office, vehicle, or community of toxic energies.

After you call upon Michael, you will likely notice a warm feeling.  That’s because he has a fiery warrior spirit.  You can ask Micheal to stay with you continuously, as he’s able to be with everyone who calls upon him simultaneously.”

is this view from our day.  We walked, biked, and even at one point, got on a bus.  Then, biked and walked some more.
