As some of you know, I have spent a great deal of time healing from Crohn’s Disease and my goal is to share that with you. Sometimes I find myself banging my head against a wall trying to ease my writer’s block when it comes to what to write about in regards to Crohn’s disease. I struggle because there seems to be such a cliff between schools of thought and the thoughts towards those who think out side of the medical paradigm. Because of this, sometimes I am in fear of writing due to the neigh sayers, the critics and the down right mean-spirited people.
I know that I must get my teachings and stories out or I will go insane, and yet my resistance and fear of moving forward has developed writers block. And that is when the Universe will step in and although the ideas are right there in front of my face I do not see them until someone says a word or something and then it is like a little light bulb comes blaring on. By George I’ve got it!!!
Recently I was in Nicole Bandes Linkedin Groupand I am not sure how it happened (yeah I guess I really do, nothing is a coincidence) but I ended up on Facebook and saw a group about a challenge. usually I have so many notices that I ignore them. But I was being led to something much more. It was a simple conversation with Author, Speaker David Cookand then seeing a post in a group I had been invited to but didn’t know it (and it was his group).
David founded a group on Facebook called the 100 day challenge and although I have been challenging myself for years without consciously knowing it, I decided to jump right in and consciously take the challenge. But I was going to do it quietly. Funny how that works…that is not what the Universe had in mind. I came across a post by Michael D. Goodman who has committed to getting more blogs out on his site. And it hit me…inspired me really, that I needed to do the same. So thank you Michael I appreciate you.
My 100 day challenge is to master or at the very least manipulate the art of allowing. I first learned about the art of allowing through Jerry and Esther Hicks the Teachings of Abraham who is channeled through Esther. This posting is not about whether you believe in channeling or not; look beyond that and hear the message. That is what I did. My thoughts on channeling are still up for debate, however instead of shutting this out, I decided to listen to the message and it is profound (see sample below)
I got well and took my life back in the beginning without consciously knowing what I was doing; I was lead to what I needed to heal. And now I find myself consciously knowing what I want, and resisting everything being presented to me and in fear of losing my health. It has been a long time since I have felt fear. I used to suffer with so much fear when I sick with Crohn’s disease; fear of never getting better, fear of not seeing my daughter grow up, fear of being lonely, fear of dying. My life was filled with fear and I focused on what I did not have and lacked in my life instead of what I wanted. It was not until I focused on what I wanted and allowing did the shift come.
And now, here I am in great health, and it seems I am in need of another Universe nudge. So my 100 day challenge (which really started July 29th and I’ll talk about that more in my next posting) is about the art of allowing and to stop resisting.
I am going through so many big changes in my life, physically and mentally as well as personally and professionally-you will see that soon enough. And I am stepping into my own by writing my book on Crohn’s disease and speaking. I can not allow the resistance to keep me from my goals and look at that; the Universe gave me the tools and resources I need to for my intentions, desires, goals and wants.
Mastering the art of allowing will bring freedom to your wants and desires whatever they may be. You truly need to master the art of allowing in order to manifest whatever it is you want; health, financial freedom, a relationship and so on.

So I ask you this,
what can you do to challenge yourself over the next 100 days?
Would you like to join me?
It can be anything you want; health, money, relationship-anything. It can be something small or big, it is up to you. When I first started my journey to wellness from Crohn’s disease I started with a journal and I would write how my day was, and then end with one thing I was grateful for. To some of you, it may come across as funny or absurd. I can tell you this, I did not know anything about being positive, or to look at things in a positive manner. Not one person in my life came from a positive perspective. Writing one thing I was grateful for was a huge deal! But what happened as I kept adding to my list is the shift in not only how I was thinking but how I was feeling. And the best part about feeling better is it only cost me $25.00 for a journal! I was on to something, I liked it, and I wanted more!
I would wake up in the morning, re-read my post and then write a second thing I was grateful for. That was it, and from there my heart and mind grew and my Crohn’s disease shrank.
Please join me, comment below and let me know how you will challenge yourself for the next 100 days…I look forward to your comments. I would love for you to be a part of this challenge and to share with me.
Make a commitment to yourself that you are worth the commitment. Write it down, and place it every where to remind yourself of your commitment. Mine is on my mirror, in my car, by my bedside, and taped to my journal. How will you keep yourself focused on your 100 day commitment?
