Sorting Emotional LaundryWritten by Sibyl McLendon
This week has been a real roller coaster at my house. A lot of emotional dirty laundry is piling up at my door. As much as I would like to not answer it, that isn't realistic. Avoidance of troubles is not answer. I long ago learned that it you let that stuff pile up, soon you won't be able to get out of house anymore.
So, when I feel as if I am trying to stand up on a teeter-totter, trick is in balance. Here, I am talking about my Hozho. This means maintaining balance and harmony no matter what. It is a Navajo word and concept; I am one half Navajo. I have to sort through that baggage; one pile is mine, another my son's, yet another belongs to my husband, and some even belongs to clients of my website design business. There is a small pile that belongs to friends, and even one over in corner that is unidentifiable! So now what? After doing sorting (which is quite difficult, really), then I have to realize that only pile I can do anything about is one that belongs to me. If I attempt to walk around carrying all those dirty clothes, it is going to break my back. I am only going to get angry, resentful and negative if I attempt to clean up everybody else's stuff. Some of them don't even want their stuff cleaned up. I also long ago learned that some people cling to trouble like a teddy bear.

What would constitute a miracle in your life? . . . A million dollars? . . A great family vacation? . . A new car? . . A physical healing? . . Someone's love? . . a 50-pound weight loss? Whatever it is that you consider your miracle, know that it CAN come true!
This is not necessarily meant to be a religious process, however it does require FAITH. Many people will indeed interpret this to mean faith in God - as I do, while to others it will mean faith in some other supreme being or faith in oneself, faith in universal forces, or in quantum field.
Our definition of a miracle is really very simple. We're not talking about flying through air or turning rocks into gold. We define a miracle as anything that you have ever previously considered impossible for yourself . . . key word here being "previously", because first prerequisite for creation of your miracle is to be able to create mindset where you now know that it is at least a possibility - because anything that you consider impossible CANNOT be manifested. Or, as Henry Ford said, "If you believe you can or if you believe you can't, you're right!"
Now, how do you create this miracle? Just follow these simple steps.
(1) Know that this miracle is possible. If it has ever been done anywhere and to anyone before know that it is possible for you as well.
