Monday, August 3, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and TWO giveaways!

Press on the graphic above to be directed to our NEW BOOK CLUB!

Today we are launching our newest feature to Ascending Butterfly, Our Book Club! Each month we will feature a book in the spotlight and open up the book club thread to comments on the book. In honor of our first book club title, today's meditation will be on Perseverance.

I will say this book puts true perseverance in a new light. It made me reflect on the times in my life where I had to show perseverance to get through tough times and challenges. We all have our perseverance tested, sometimes on a daily basis even, but it's how you handle the tough times that count. Perseverance is your true grit and it has nothing to do with obstinancy, in fact this quote describes it perfectly:

The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won't. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Reflect on the times when you've shown true perseverance in overcoming an obstacle. How did it make you feel? Powerful? Confident? Able to take on the world?

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I will always persevere.'

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different!

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
