The Miracle Challenge, DAY #30!!!

ONE!!!!

We made it everyone!!!  :-)  Consider this – you started something, and no matter how frequently you posted or how “well” you think you did, it is now done.  Congratulations!!!

Today I encourage you to take a few moments to think back over the last 30 days and consider what has happened. Has anything changed?  Are you seeing your situation and/or your life any differently?  Have you been noticing more miracles in general?

It has been a pleasure and an honor to make this journey with you.  I plan to do more Challenges like this in the future (although I imagine that each one will be a little different!)  I’ll be sending participants some feedback questions in the next few days so that the each new Challenge can be better than the one before!

There are also PRIZES and I’ll notify the winners of those early next week.

And…I’ve heard from a few people who said that they’ve been participating at home but not posting online. I’d love to hear from you about what (if anything) would have encouraged you to join us.

And finally – all of you who have participated, YOU are my miracle.  Thank you for showing up and allowing yourselves to be vulnerable. I am deeply grateful to each of you.

With love,
Leah

    Woohoo! I can’t believe it is day 30.
    Big change. I have a much more acute sense of what is going on for me. I mean that I hear my Goddess Voice much more clearly and sooner. By practicing mindfulness on a daily basis, it comes much more easily. I have glimpsed the Power of Now!

    There have been two really rewarding parts of this challenge for me. The first is spending a month focusing quite frequently on being joyful. And it has been such a joyful month! The other is reading posts from other participants. Susan M and LMVL I especially enjoyed following your posts and your practices. It is most inspiring for me to see others with so much commitment and aptitude for inner work. Best wishes to you all. Peace

    Participating in this challenge has really opened my eyes to how much I’ve resisted thinking about the role that money has in my life. In the past I’ve stressed out about my current situation and made plans for some future day when I’m wealthy, but I haven’t wanted to sit down and tell myself the truth about what’s going on. I haven’t told others the truth about what’s going on. I’ve simply buried my head in the sand and hoped that something magical would happen to make it better. This month I’ve begun to realize that if I face it straight on, it’s potentially not quite as scary as I had told myself. And I’m becoming more willing to take responsibility for what I see today and what I create tomorrow. I’m really grateful.

    This has been quite a month for me. I’m not even sure where I started with the challenge, but I have finished by being more aware of not only what is going on around me, but my reactions to certain people and situations. I am more mindful about what I say and how I say it. Funny how easy it is to be happy when you shift your perspective. Thank you Leah, you are an inspiration to me.

    This month has been one of many transformations for me. I have to say that while no major “Publisher’s Clearing House Arriving at my Door with a GIANT CHECK” changes have occurred, somehow many beautiful deeply rich changes have blossomed.

    I feel stronger and even less inner loneliness. And I have a personal strength born of faith in myself. Maybe part of that faith is due to my making a 30 day commitment to my own self. YAY!

    I have learned that honesty and truth are my friends. They are the light that lead my path and without them… I stand still, often sad, pouting, blaming, negative – literally losing time in my life. While my whole life isn’t spent in this standstill, any part of my self that hibernates frozen by fear stagnates my personal growth and casts a shadow of depression on my otherwise joyful life.

    I’ve chosen to face some hard truths and work through them no matter how many consecutive “30 days” it may take to reach the time and place where I can respond truthfully rather than defensively in moments of strong emotion.

    I’m proud of myself for speaking truthfully to myself, and typing it out in the black-and-white-open of this challenge. It takes some deep breaths sometimes to commit to the words and read them and click SUBMIT. But there has been a freedom in admitting and sharing my fears and truths. I am so grateful for the challenge to really find the words and name it. Naming my feelings, fears, hopes and dreams hasn’t hurt as much as I worried. Rather it’s really freed me and given me strength. What a gift and probably my greatest miracle to date. =) Yes, I think it is!

    Wishing everyone that same truth, faith and strength to continue on our paths knowing that we’re not alone in this journey.

    Feeling oh so grateful.
