A manifesto to empower change in our life ... 'Change is how I grow, nourish, challenge and define myself and my limitless capacity for more - for goodness, for greatness whenever I choose to live as my highest self - whenever I realize my capacity for greatness lives in my ability to open to it - to become it through desire and the natural unfolding of change that takes me from where I am to where I choose to go.'

Change
The only true constant in life. You can accept it, welcome it, or fight it tooth and nail. I've had to accept all the mass changes in my life these last few years. I may not like them all, but it’s worthless to fight. Move on. Move up. Keep moving forward. -Walt Disney

Be apart of the change you wish to see
Perfect timing. I was struggling to accept some changes at work. I blamed myself for missing the mark. I did not miss the mark. The mark moved. Leadership changed. A new vision emerged. I adapted because the only constant in life is change.

Dorothy you have truly outdone yourself and all your other fine works!! Your Change Manifesto puts into words what I have been working at for the past 30+ years. Thank You!! I hope everyone would hear this. Kids in school, their parents at work, etc. We change with every passing moment, every breath we take, every Thought we Think. And it is up to us if it is for the better or worse. Change IS your friend (if you choose to change for the better) or your worst enemy if you are trying to stay the same (which by default means you are Not changing for the better). So learn the Laws of the Body , Mind & Soul & choose to Change for the Better! It is up to You!! ❤️☮️🍀

The Power of Change
Dorothy, this is absolutely magnificent. There is much I would like to say but my words could not possibly begin to describe the effect this has had on me. I must listen again and again in order to be certain I have gleaned every nugget of your beautiful wisdom. Thank you, Dorothy. 🙏🏻Namaste 🙏🏻

What a beautiful message on the perspective of change. Let change be our constant. When we embrace, and accept change we are open to an infinite of possibilities. Look for the underlying good of the change that occurs. As i heard this meditation i couldn’t help but picture our bodies. How from the moment we are born, our bodies are constantly changing. Each and everyday we experience that change, but to a certain extent we’ve accepted that, and each and every phase is a beautiful one. Our acceptance of change opens up to love, hope and inspiration. Love Love LOVED this meditation. Namaste.

embracing the changes I feel myself needing to make isn't wrong. it isn't wrong to let yourself change. it isn't wrong for you to walk away from what holds you back. whatever it is that might be who is it who is it I dont know who it is to be quite honest. I've gotten off on quite a tangent. anyway change is okay. stop running from it.

I have been going through a lots changes. Sometimes I view it as a negative and that I’m hurting the people around me but it’s mostly to help me grow myself or stand up for myself or even give myself a better environment. This is a good meditation to remember to embrace that change.

I need to embrace the idea that change makes you happy! So many things have happened this year that I didn't see coming, but when I allowed them to happen it was wonderful. I need to keep that mindset every day!

I learned that i saw change, at something that is often bad, but is not. Change is part of life and is constantly there, were always having new experiences, thats what makes it special.

Change just is
It’s so hard not to put emotion or interpretation on changes that happen in our lives. I’m going through a big life change and I need to remember that it’s not good or bad, it just is and I need to let it work.

A Choice
Long ago, when my daughter was very young, she said to me “Dad, I loved when you said to me ‘With every challenge you have, remember this - if you think you can, if you think you cannot - you’re right.’”

Insanity: always doing the same thing over and over, never changing; yet, expecting different results.

Speechless 😁
Every thought and idea in this practice hit home like a truckload of bricks. My mind is spinning from the affirmation of what I have always felt. I have always embraced and drawn strength from change but didn’t know how to express the power. This is one of the most powerful practices I have done and has empowered me to make changes in my life that I was avoiding.

I learned to accept all the changes that are coming. The struggles of last year is what i’m going to accept so new changes can comd through.

change constant
Being a mathy person, I learned that the changes that happen are never constant, but that change itself is a constant. From the Calculus perspective, it is like this: change does not equal zero, but the derivative of change equals zero. So for those math nerds out there, this is a positive twist on how to approach life understanding change and how to be in control of it rather than being controlled by it.

Change
Change is something we can’t ignore the change shouldn’t be seen as a negative thing it’s honestly helpful in our sense so the next time I think about it as a very negative or awful idea where it’s so scary that I can’t even think about being able to do such a thing I remember that change doesn’t necessarily have to be such a scary thing if it’s able to get you so many new opportunities change shouldn’t be an Awful thing most people should actually be very grateful and happy towards change I mean I’m not one to talk I am not one to fully understand everyone else’s lives and such but I believe it actually has helped so many people in the end so change is positive it’s a great thing amazing perfect it’s just it’s honestly just really good you know it’s it’s not something I believe it’s an awful thing I’d much more rather realize that changes something that has helped me in the end for example we believe our old house is haunted because we would have paranormal activity I’d I think I’m not sure I was still a child I mean like my parents would talk about all of the creepy things and then the idea of selling our old house scared me and it pissed me off I hated the idea and then when we moved we got the opportunity to get an even bigger house and it actually be able to have our own rooms and we would stop having the paranormal activity it was honestly a blessing to get this house and it’s so big it’s nice and I am not infested with haunted things but it’s it’s a great deal of help that I finally realize that that our old neighborhood might’ve been safe from robberies but it was not safe from spiritual ideas and such so I am thankful that we were able to change I might not be as happy as I used to be but I am happy that I’m safer now, yeah 😊

Change
The only constant. How we respond to the changes that happen in our lives is what matters most. We can view change as positive grow experiences to challenge ourselves and expand our views, or we can see the scary side of changes and try repel the change that happens around us. I prefer the former view of change as it brings new opportunities and new knowledge.

Change is nessecary
I wouldn’t have been able to listen to this with both my brain and my heart this time last year (shortly after my husband left me) but now listening to this it can sink in and I can reflect on how good the changes have been for me and can continue to be a tool for positive growth. Thank you for helping me gain further insight.

Excellent meditation Dorothy! The only constant in life is change itself. Like the resilient bamboo tree that bends gracefully with the wind, I too aspire to flow with the winds of change - to discover my infinite potential, to align with my higher self. Thank you for reminding me to embrace change without fear and with the courage and trust that all will be well in my evolution. Namaste. 🙏🏻💕

Change is a necessary part of life in order for us to grow and be on the right path. Accept it readily

Accepting Change
Sometimes in life unexpected changes come into our life that we want to resist because we feel we have no control over the situation. It is normal to fear the unknown. It is also normal to feel grief for a change in your life that you may not want. When we seek the good of what this new change can bring into our life, we are able to accept change with an ease and grace. We are able to go with the flow.

Embrace Change
Before I always want consistency that I forgot that people change. They change because they grow. Then It seems like I was stuck in the past rather and called it consistent. But the more I realize change is always there. So today I learned that change is always there and embrace it. This will teach me how to love again and be the best version of myself.

Started off irritable ...
I learned that takes no a moment to ask myself why or where this feeling is coming from and allowing myself to feel it is a beautiful way to except the present moment. Breathe and allow.......mood has shifted! 🙏🏼🧘🏻‍♀️🙏🏼
