Masterpiece Life

Breaking Free From Time

Why have we given so much power to time?
For most of us it runs our lives, yet we are not
even aware of this. I have spent the last two weeks
in a state of awareness of my concepts and beliefs
on time. Today it felt like I was peeling an outer
skin off as I came to a new understanding and
experience of time.

This new level of awareness started with the work that I have
been doing with Marc Allen and Franco DeNicola. With Franco
we are in the process of translating his knowledge and
information into a way that can assist you right now with
what is happening in your life. It’s a big picture of what
is possible for humanity once more people wake up
to the inner power we each have inside. I know a
new reality is possible, now we need to assist others
to see, feel, taste and experience it as well.

Marc Allen has truly inspired me to create a possibility
in my daily living where my personal, business, family,
friends, health and healing experience all take place
“In an easy and relaxed manner; and in a healthy and
positive way. In its own perfect time, for the highest good of all.”

“In an easy and relaxed manner; in its own perfect time.”
I’ve said those words hundreds of times over the past
two weeks. Doing this has enabled me to see the contrast
of where things are not “in an easy & relaxed manner”.
I noticed that when I get up at 6:15am to get the children
out of bed and ready for school I’m already hitting the
ground running. I then keep telling the children to “hurry up!!”
as I don’t want them to miss the 7am school bus. I was
creating a state of anxiety for myself and for them. More
importantly, I was programming myself and them that
“time is running out” and “we have to hurry”.

My days are very full – just like you – and there
are daily living things that just have to get done.
What I’ve noticed as I keep saying those words
(“In an easy and relaxed manner; in a healthy and
positive way; in its own perfect time; for the
highest good of all”), is that the anxiety and
self-imposed pressure of time dissolves.

Today I released an old paradigm of time.
I cleared a huge weight off. I feel more grounded,
clear and purposeful. I wish this for you too.

Try this today. Keep repeating throughout your day:

“In an easy and relaxed manner; in a healthy and positive
way; in its own perfect time; for the highest good of all.”

Notice what contrast comes up for you.
Let me know what you experience in the comments area below.

    Antonia,

    Funny you should mention this today. Funny I should read it. I created a great state of anxiety and panic for me and my children this morning. I actually, threw a temper tantrum. I have almost never in my life thrown a tantrum.

    I was feeling as though life has passed me by and I am sunk. I’m sooooo TIRED of feeling as though it’s too late and my life is a wash. I so totally believe in ease and in a relaxed fashion yet I don’t always feel as though I know what to do or how and when to do it.

    Brenda

    definitely made me feel more relaxed and positive. Thank you! πŸ™‚

  • Danielle April 15, 2010, 12:07 PM

    It’s funny for me too that you should write this today as I’ve been busy working on my workshop materials that I’m running next month on Personal Productivity and Time Mastery. Too funny. Thanks, Danielle

    Hi Brenda,
    Start with repeating that phrase over and over – kind of like a mantra.
    I’ve been doing it for the past 2 weeks and then I realized how insane
    parts of my life can be. What happened next is that I was able to observe
    myself as an outsider – like I was watching a movie. There would be a
    split second before I would react in that time pressed way and then
    I could consciously chose a different behaviour and attitude.
    I’ve been a lot more relaxed this week in the mornings as a result.
    Of course, the children respond energetically to this and everything
    becomes easier.
    Let me know how it goes with your children tomorrow after spending
    today repeating “In an easy & relaxed manner, in a healthy & positive way,
    in its own perfect time, for the highest good of all.”

    Love,
    Antonia

    I will definitely try it. By the way, I don’t have any children… πŸ™‚

    Hi Antonia:

    I have those exact words in my car that I see and read ever so often. It goes like this:” In an easy and relaxed manner, in a healthy and positive way, in its own perfect time, for the highest good of all, I intend a million dollars to come into my life and to all who has this intention.” I was blown away when I saw you had the exact same words, of course without the latter part. At times I thought of saying “now” instead of “in its own perfect time” but I end up reading it just as it is. Funny how life can be at times.

    Blessings,
    Jeunesse

    Hi Antonia
    I have just woken here in New Zealand and this phrase was one of the first things I read in my day. I wanted to tell you that just reading it once was a beautiful experience. I felt lighter and any tension melted away. It was like a mini-meditation. Thanks so much!
    Love to all ~ Helen

  • Antonia April 15, 2010, 4:56 PM

    My pleasure!

    β€œIn an easy and relaxed manner; in a healthy and positive
    way; in its own perfect time; for the highest good of all.”
    Those are the perfect words! Using them not only immediately brings you to their state of being, it also reminds us to create what we want consciously throughout the day, not just when we are inspired, or set aside the time to set our intentions.

    I’ve been experimenting with the idea of “time” with my children for about ten years now. We’ve tried everything from a “go with the flow, unrestricted bed times” (When they were little; this was so much fun, but I wouldn’t recommend it… parents need personal time too!) to daily scheduling with constant activity.

    Time is totally flexible, however the 2 things that have not been able to change yet πŸ™‚ are the rising and setting of the sun, and other people’s perception of time. Although, we could travel the world to whatever time zone or latitude we wanted, and there are quite a few businesses and cities that are open 24-7 (7-Eleven, Las Vegas come to mind)

    As my children grow, we change our schedules to what works best for all of us… currently these 3 things have given us the most freedom with our time:

    1) Home schooling my children- This takes some dedication, but is worth it just for the elimination of the “morning mess”… I don’t recommend it for everyone, but trying it for a little while will bring whole new insights (what we really want our children to learn, what we want to experience together as a family/society, ways to improve our relationships and lifestyles). There are all kinds of different home school programs, (just google your area and grade levels) or at least different schools to send our children to.(one they can’t wait to get up, and go to!)

    2)Shabbat- We got this concept from the Jewish religion; we are not jewish or religious, (I prefer to remind my children of their spiritual existence, and let them develop their own relationship with our creator. Children can teach US more than we could ever learn from an organization or guru, they did just come from the other side.) One night and day a week is dedicated just for relaxation, fun, love, new things and experiences; no work, stress, or pressure allowed!!! This takes a little planning during the week to have everything run smoothly, but the benefits are amazing! (I also love the Jewish concepts of shalom bayit (Peaceful Home) and Tikkun olam (the healing of the world) and Tzedakah. We pick a new organization or charity to give our time or extra money to each month, or just do this:

    http://giveawayadollaraday.com/faq.html

    Shabbat is the only part of our week that I’m absolutely strict about! πŸ™‚

    3)One week on, one week off- This is our newest addition in time experimentation; we’re gradually implementing it into our lives, and it’s an expansion of the same concept above. One week is focused on work, the next is for going out and living life(instead of just one day), experiencing all it has to offer! Steve Pavlina recently explained more about this concept here:

    http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2010/02/one-week-on-one-week-off/

    This does a lot to relieve that “dragging through the week like a zombie” feeling, and we have more energy and time to just enjoy life!

    Thank you for your blog post, Antonia! Helping humanity wake up to this concept is a necessary and worthwhile goal. This is such an easy way to improve our time/value consciousness!

  • Janice April 15, 2010, 8:27 PM

    I came up with this affirmation one night, it’s so great:
    “I Have Never-Ending Blessings and Abundance, Everyday, in Everyway!”
    or “I Receive Never-Ending Blessings and Abundance, Everyday in Everyway!!
    It strongly changes your vibration! I do believe more people are becoming intuned to the knowledge that their programmes conflict with who they really are! We are not here to have, have and have, because we already do have everything!!, we just fail to notice it!

  • Antonia April 15, 2010, 8:28 PM

    Awesome Angela – simply awesome!

  • Helen April 16, 2010, 7:57 AM

    Thanks Antonia for this wonderful, practical, peaceful reminder.

  • Antonia April 16, 2010, 8:20 AM

    Well said Janice. Keep shinning your light!

  • Cheryl April 16, 2010, 9:59 AM

    thanks Antonia,

    Strange that today I opened you blog as similar thoughts had been going though my mind – however you expressed them so well! This concept is so needed in order to life peacefully in Dar es Saleem!

    Hi Antonia,

    Thank you for the re minder!! I am most often in a physical state of tightness and it is such a huge difference in my body to relax. I suffer from psoriasis and did a little guided (meditation with Jennifer MacLean where we were supposed to focus on the control centre of the body (just below the heart and about halfway through the thickness of our torso) and ask that centre what our body needed to resolve any health problem(or return whatever area was giving you grief/pain/etc to complete health). My answer to resolving psoriasis for me was ‘Relax’. So, since I thought I had already been relaxed (as I was just sitting there with my eyes closed), I then asked my control centre to show me what being totally relaxed felt like and just waited. Wow! I realized how tight I was holding my shoulders, scalp, neck, breathing and many other areas of my body. For the longest time I practiced this little exercise of relaxing consciously but recently with a tough relationship problem, I forgot. Your re-minder has hopefully got me back on track.

    Funny the times when I get the most upset is when my partner does not respect my ‘lack of time’….. boy do I have issues!! Thank you!

    Your message is greatly appreciated.
    Candice

    There is no “time”, it is all an invention of “man”. In the Universe there is no time, it has “just” exploded so this is its momentum which is still going on so what we call millions of years is only a “bunch” of turns that the earth because of that explosion that is still going on at this moment. You see, there is no “future” only this moment or “NOW”, what happens is that there is only “change” we are aging because of the speed and turns that we have riding this planet (and for that matter, the universe) that is my opinion thank you.
