My takeaways from the webinar were:
Grace = benevolent force of energy available to us all which keeps us aligned with our higher purpose
Surrender draws grace … but you must be present to receive it
Awareness breaks habits … If you were truly present to your life, you couldn’t stand the life you are living
Her mantra: work smart, have fun, no drama <sounds like a plan>
Give generously even when you don’t have it <this was a recurring theme for all speakers in this webinar>
Grace is available … we just have to ask for it
Put heart stickers everywhere as a reminder to be in the now
Before you get out of bed … program your day …
To me, timing is everything in life. When I don’t feel the timing is right, I trust my intuition and don’t do it. But if I get 2-3 nudges from outside sources, I will surrender and move toward whatever I was resisting. I’ve learned that by surrendering, the flow becomes magical and so much better than if I had spent time and effort planning. It is easy to see grace when we get what we want; a little harder when there is fear and pain involved but both are equally beneficial. As the saying goes, “let go and let God.”
Cheryl suggests keeping a grace journal <similar to a gratitude journal> ... by looking for synchronicty and being grateful, it tells the universe to bring you more of the same because you are awake and paying attention! She suggested these three ways:
1. Imagine something and think about it … then see how long it takes to show up in your life
2. Go back and look at your life and write your life story … notice how grace has shown up and served you to get where you are today
3. Each day, write this statement from Cheryl's book in your journal. "I am open and receptive to the Power of Grace in my life now. I ask to be shown clear examples of how this energy is operating in my life."
What are your experiences of grace in your life?
