It’s here! Today is officially day 1 of the #MCMBookClub! Tomorrow, we begin our journey together reading May Cause Miracles. Today, we’re going to open up and get HONEST. Can I get a HOLLA?!
Last night, three wonderful local ladies and I met at Wildflour Vegan Bakery & Cafe for the first local book club meeting. It was so powerful and candid. We’re all here to support each other! If you live locally, you should totally join the par-tay!
Before diving into the book, I thought it might be nice for us to just chill out, get to know each other, and get honest about why we’re starting this journey. We did exactly that last night and I know that I speak for all of us when I say that we already feel closer as a group.
Why are you taking this journey?
I decided to read May Cause Miracles because I know it will be an amazing supplement to me as a student of A Course in Miracles. Gabby is my soul sister and I deeply believe in all of her teachings. I want to support and be a part of it!
Personally, I want to get over my fear of success. I know what I want to do in life and I’m actively creating the life I am meant to live every day by living in my truth every day. I’ve revved up my spiritual practice on a moment-to-moment basis, I’m soaking up everything I can from my spiritual teachers, and I’m immersing myself in the service that I know is my calling. All the while, though, there is this doubt inside of me. My ego tells me that I will not achieve what I want to and know I can manifest. My ego tells me that my dream is just a dream – not a wish that I can co-create (with the Universe) into reality. My ego says, “Hey girl. Your dreams are nice and all but that dream you have is simply not in the cards for you. Just give up and settle.”
This is not real. But this is a vice that I need to get rid of. Through these 40 days (and for the rest of my amazing life on this planet), I am committing to surrendering myself to self-love. I know that I am love and I am a miracle worker. I just need some tweaking so that I can fully immerse myself in this.
God, that feels so good to write and get off my chest!
Stay Honest & Willing
Since I wanted to create a newsletter for each of the 40 days, I started reading MCM one week ago. I can tell you that this book is absolutely cracking me open and sparking my creativity. If you read every word with passion and careful thought, this book will change your life. If you rush through chapters and don’t really soak up the words, this book will not change your life. I’m not trying to scare you at all! Just being honest. If you want to see the results, you have to take the practice seriously and do the work. Be willing to look at your ego and your ~ing and do not judge yourself for any stuff that comes up. You’ve got this! That’s why I created this book club – so we can do this together and not feel alone!
Now, it’s your turn. Let’s have a party in the comments section! Why are you taking this journey? Typing it out forces you to get honest with yourself. Reading what you wrote allows you to accept where you are now and honor yourself for giving yourself this gift of taking the May Cause Miracles journey. We all have each others backs! After you comment, extend your love and call to service by commenting on someone else’s comment. Let’s have each other’s backs. That’s how we will heal. One action of love at a time.
After doing this, in your MCM notebook answer this question: Who am I? Allow yourself to pour out who you believe that you are right now. This is a really short but really powerful exercise. We did it last night at the meet-up! We’re all going to do this exercise again at the end of the 40 days so you can see how much progress you’ve made. Now, get writing and get ready to ramp up your miracles!
P.S. – If you have a question, you can always email me. Better yet, tweet it with the #MCMBookClub hash tag and my Twitter handle, @theloveofkale, so we can all help each other! xo
