CAMI’S MESSAGE: We are enjoying Spring showers in Denver. Rain always reminds me that the great spirit urges us to practice acceptance, tolerance and forgiveness. In my 12-Step work with Susie (my sponsor) I am beginning to make amends to people I have harmed (Step 9). My list is not long, but includes a few people I am not in open communication with, like my sisters and my second husband who is my son’s father. I want to make amends for being judgmental, manipulative, abusive, resentful, jealous, enabling and ask for forgiveness. So far I have made index cards with a person’s name on the front and the amends written on back. I plan to write letters to everyone on my list, then attempt to have a direct conversation. I am a little nervous, but trust the right opportunities will present themselves.
WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN I FINISH MY 29 GIFTS? Review your month and take notice of the changes you see in the quality of your thinking. Are you more positive? Have you noticed a ripple effect from any of your gifts? Many 29 Givers start again at Day One and keep giving because it makes us feel good. I invite you to join our 29 Gifts Community Team and help welcome new members, comment on people's posts and start conversations on the site. If you are interested in joining our Community Team, DM me or leave a comment on this post. You can also organize group gives in your local area. When I was traveling and speaking about 29 Gifts, I organized Flower Power Gives in each city I visited. Read about my first Flower Power Give in Hollywood in July 2008. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/get-your-give/200908/flower-power-give
WISE WORDS FROM MBALI CREAZZO, Mother of our 29gifts.org Movement “Magic has a bad rap, and yet without it we are the walking dead. We are never surprised, take risks, or step into the unknown. Without the magic of our lives, we cease to be truly connected. Without Nature’s magic we run the risk of thinking we are all there is, creating isolation, loneliness and a disconnection so immense we may as well be homeless on the street.” Read more at https://ourdivinemedicine.wordpress.com/2018/02/14/natures-magic/
