Persistence - Deborah Donaldson
rose with snow

Well, this morning during my sit I was starting to feel like I had stalled out on my growth.

I attempted to shake myself out of it so I shook my head and went back to my visualization exercise.  Last week the visualization was more difficult for me.  I never did “see” the cone with my eyes open.  I always had to close my eyes to just see the outline.

I began to wonder, am I feeling like I am not progressing because my old blueprint is acting up again?  Or, have I just plateaued for a little bit before my next growth spurt?

I related this to working out because I know for me when I am working out I make progress and then I plateau, I make more progress and I plateau.  I have to change up my workouts exactly the way that we are changing up how we present information to the subby.  On Sunday’s call, Mark talked a lot about persistence and Scroll III this month is all about persistence.  Hummmm… I wonder if the universe is trying to tell me something.

We had a light dusting of snow the night before.  I went out to my car in the morning to go to work and I couldn’t help but notice that the rose is still trying to bloom.  Talk about persistence!!

How can I do any less? 

Always will I take another step.  If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another.  In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult…I will persist until I succeed.

Thanks for sharing this! I also had a bit of a set back last week, but I kept reading Og’s Scroll about being persistent and persevering. It has paid off this week. I met up with a friend last night that I have not seen in years. Everything we talked about totally aligned with everything we have been learning in the master keys group. It was amazing and she knew nothing about what I had been doing. Things are starting to align for me! I persist and I win!

Visualization. Ever done any before? We are making a QUANTUM LEAP into powerful abilities. Just do it I am told. Do that exercise and like Haanel says you will be on the road to CREATION! I was able to make parking cones in my front yard! DO IT…..

Debbie, that’s a perfect example of persistence right there. Even if the bud never make it to full bloom, next year the rose will try again and it will succeed! Thanks!

I am loving your rose!!! <3

I've also had a hard time with the visualization last week. I decided that I just need to keep practicing it because the fact that it's hard for me is letting me know it's something I can learn from.

Gonna rewire the neuro-pathways in my brain and develop those visualization muscles.
