The Giving Game – Day 59

17610_582831501745581_551492810_nI found an article from “Spirituality & Health” Magazine (Aug. 2004) called, “Materialize Your Visions.” The author, Terry Helwig, poses a series of questions, so I thought I’d add them here… in case you want to expand your daily questions. (This is very, very abbreviated!!)

Terry talks about ‘weaving’ the following 7 threads together.

1. The Thread of Awareness is incubating an idea even though you don’t know how to manifest it.

Questions: What idea or ideas have come more than once? What wants to be born? (If ever you feel like David standing before Goliath, remember the words of Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

2.The Thread of Inquiry asks us to explore an idea to make it richer…

Question: How is my idea or vision symbolic? (If you can connect your particular idea to the universal or archetypal, then your idea will speak to the deepest levels of human experience.)

3. The Thread of Commitment is about voice and choice. It is saying, I will. In ‘Energy Anatomy: The Science of Co-Creation and Your Power of Choice, Caroline Myss talks about creativity. She imagines an angel approaching the altar of our life and placing upon it the gift of an idea. We then have a choice. We can accept the gift and say, yes, I will help this idea become a reality. Or we can say, no thank you.

Questions: How can I ritually say yes to my idea or vision? Where can I safely voice my idea?

4. The Thread of Heartfullness is about listening to what your heart wants.

Questions: What does my heart want? How does my idea or vision add “heart” to my life or to the world? (Engaging the heart calls forth the passion and energy necessary to see an idea through to completion.

5. The Thread of Trust underscores the belief that we harbor the ability to find the resources we need to manifest our visions. (Georgia O’Keeffe said, “I have been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.”

Questions: Do I trust that by following my thread of trust I will be guided to the resources to make it happen? What one fear might keep me from taking the risk? If I could not fail, what would I do? (The Thread of Trust is now knowing everything; it’s trusting that you will be given the resources you need.

6. The Thread of Ingenuity is being resourceful, inventive, original, and creative…. it’s letting your idea evolve.

Question: How can I see my problems as catalysts for creativity? (This thread encourages us to approach problems as thresholds to creative solutions that can move an idea forward.)

7. The Thread of Perseverance may be the elephant’s graveyard of ideas. Ideas and visions intoxicate and excite. But turning them into a final product or outcome is plain hard work…. This thread means showing up every day. It’s painting the painting, writing the book; putting in the time to turn a vision into reality.

Question: What is my plan of action to anchor my idea in reality? (This thread challenges us to materialize our inspirations as part of our spiritual journey.)

By clearing a path of possibility, our unique gifts and ideas can be manifested in the world.
