It's been a long, hard week, but this one's good (Daily Om)

Yes, last week was rough (bad strep throat and a temp of nearly 103), but this week was worse. Wit's End (the place I called home) is offically no more. Lisa is leaving, and if/when I stay, the house will be renamed.

Additionally, if anyone knows anyone who is looking for a place to live (single person, sane/clean/employed/realtively quiet/geek), please let them know that there is half of a small house in Seatac that they can consider. Rent is ~$600 per month, with 1/2 utilities, washer/dryer, dishwasher, additional freezer, and a smallish backyard. One cat will be here, and other cats/small dogs are negotiable. The house is pretty close to a major bus line, and is a close driving distance to Link Light Rail.

And now, for today's Daily OM:

Transforming a Misperception


We all know what it feels like to want something we don’t have. It may be a pair of expensive jeans, a romantic partner, or rent money; it may be a certain attitude, a car, or a savings account. This is part of life, and in the best-case scenario, we experience a constant flow of money and material possessions, companions and experiences, in and out of our lives. However, many of us linger in a state of wanting and not having, a state of lack that never seems to subside. We consistently perceive ourselves as not having what we need or not having what we want. This is an energetically draining state to be in. It is also self-perpetuating because how we feel about ourselves determines what we are able to create for ourselves.

How we feel profoundly influences how we perceive our reality. When we feel we are lacking, we look around and see what is not there. On the other hand, if we feel abundant, we can look at the very same situation and see a completely different picture, one full of blessings and advantages. The more we see the blessings, the more abundant we feel, and the more blessings we attract. Similarly, if we see lack, we tend to create and attract that energy.

If you find yourself habitually residing in a feeling of lack, it may be due to a core belief formed in your childhood or even in a past life. It may be because you are out of touch with your inner divinity, which is the source of your abundance. In any case, know that your perception of lack is a misperception that can be corrected with awareness and effort. It can be as simple as taking 10 or 15 minutes each day to quiet your mind and imagine yourself in a state of unlimited abundance, handling the financial demands and others in your life with total ease, drawing from an endless supply of resources. Know that it is your birthright to be fully supported in the fulfillment of your needs and desires.
