Hi, Friends, sharing with you again in gratitude, my personal notes on the 3rd Talk of the Series: MAGNETIC by our Feast Builder Bro Dreus Cosio @ The Feast SM Santa Rosa, Cinema 1, two weeks ago.
Sorry for posting this late; I just had to accomplish a lot lately — but I don’t wanna miss this chance because being a mother of three daughters, I dearly hope this would be something they can always go back to when they come to the RIGHT TIME of finding their “Mr. Right”. I sure do hope that this would also help a lot of parents out there while they fervently desire for their child’s best future.
How to Attract The Right Person Into Your Life
Talk 3: The Bond
When you try to look for the right person,
“Hanapin mo yong taong gagawin kang priority, hindi temporary.”
Basically, both men and women — some, if not all — do not really know how to attract the right person in their life.
Why? — because people are getting confused in their love story and with the way they look at themselves.
Unconscious as they are, there is that tendency to carelessly submit or comply with the 3 Laws of Romantic Attraction:
1st law. You don’t attract who you deserve. You attract who you think you deserve.
Subconsciously, you see yourself in a very low way. You’ve got to consider that your perception is your reality. If you perceive yourself as somebody who is broken, you will be looking for another broken person.
The perfect formula for a toxic relationship is a toxic self.
2nd law. You don’t attract who you want. You attract who you are.
A wounded person will attract another wounded person. An emotionally healthy person will attract another healthy person.
3rd law. You don’t attract how you want to be treated. You attract how you treat yourself.
Long before he treated her as garbage, she already treated herself as garbage.To her, abuse felt like love.
Broken people attracts broken people. “If you don’t do the inner work to heal yourself, your unhealed wounds will attract another wounded person.”
“If you don’t heal your own wounds, you’ll go into a relationship, seeking for someone else to heal your wounds.”
You get attracted to many wrong people because you don’t really think of your self too well.
TO ATTRACT THE RIGHT PERSON, you’ve got “WORK ON YOURSELF FIRST!” Unless you have a healthy relationship with yourself, you’ll never have a healthy relationship with others.
Its ok for you to declare that you are wonderfully made. You have to love yourself!

You’ve got to BE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND!
Here are these 6 WAYS to be your own BEST FRIEND:
1. Forgive your faults.
Imagine yourself at the end of the day and forgive yourself.
2. Fix your fences.
Fix your defense system — your boundaries. Protect yourself from meanness.
3. Feel your feelings.
All emotions are valid but not all expressions. Affirming your feelings is respecting yourself.
Put a gap between emotion and expression.
4. Focus on your fantasies.
What do you picture in your mind?
Stop thinking about the bad stuff that’s happening in your life.
5. Follow your fun.
Don’t take yourself too seriously. “tumawa ka naman!”
Laugh more often!
6. Find your flow.
Go on, pursue your passion as a person!
If you find your flow — your “zone” — you feel alive.
Go back to yourself. Be comfortable with one thing in life — be comfortable with God’s love.
The bond simply means you have to fix your relationships at home by fixing your self first. You have to love your self every day. You have to feel good about yourself because it all boils down on how you see yourself!
Bro Dreus concluded with this advice:
“Everyday, start declaring the wonderful characters that you are! Couples as well, you could start to embrace your differences and start fixing your relationship.”
Pwedeng may part ng buhay mo na hindi ka sanay
But you need to be comfortable in that place— how?
Magpamahal ka kay God.
Allow God to tell you how much He loves you!

December 18, 2016. 4th Sunday of Advent. Emmanuel: God With Us
Pls Read God’s Silent Message: Mt 1:18-24
Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means “God is with us.”
I thought I won’t make it!
I thought I would be weak and would feel weaker as I had to go through those six cycles!
But here I am … STRONGER! Continually claiming for such BREAKTHROUGH that those six which recently ended would be the last; … no more 7th, no more 8th!
When TOUGH TIMES supersede, you would surely doubt if you’d ever get through it! It has never been easy waking up at the middle of the night with unexplained pains. It has never been easy battling the work of the mind which triggers all the anxieties there are, during each and every cycle; even during downtimes few days after the treatment.
But what makes me survive each time? … that assurance that “God is with me!”
Each time I cry out to God for His mercy & love, there in my dreams, He makes me see that I have succeeded over the valley of death and that I am there, right on top of such valley, enjoying His Oasis of healing, tapping over the refreshing water of life.
Friends, would you hold on to the promises of God, especially when you are faced with uncertainty in your journey? … PLEASE DO!
Just like Joseph & Mary in today’s gospel, we are called “in hope to believe against hope” that God will fulfill all His promises and that He will give us great guarantee through our intuition and our dreams – exactly as what He did with Joseph – whom after such dream, when Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him. Mary on the other hand, nonetheless believed and trusted with all her heart even if she was asked to assume a burden of tremendous responsibility – BOTH A LANGUAGE OF LOVE just to bring us our “Emmanuel”!
May this Advent Season make our lives an inspiration of faith & hope to those we fall short of recognition that amidst life’s enormous challenge, “God is with us” for always! #sunset
First Sunday of Advent
Pls Read God’s Silent Message: MT 24:37-44
Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.
Ready ka na ba?
Ready ka na ba to receive more of God’s blessings?
How prepared are you to answer na “ready ka na nga?”
What if tomorrow never comes? What if today is your last chance to answer this question?
While struggling to survive, I’ve been asking this to myself. Everyday, I would reflect: “Am I really ready should this day be my last?
Anong blessing pa kaya ang pwede kong tanggapin na dapat kong ika-ready?
Today is the First Sunday of Advent which means “Coming” – a time when we have to be reminded of the reality that we are living in the end times. The coming of Jesus which we celebrate at Christmas should be a constant reminder that we have to personally prepare ourself for His final return on the Day of Judgment – which no one really ever knows when!
Thing is … how PRODUCTIVE have we been as we prepare for such day?
That feeling of rush and persistence when you anticipate that you’re at the brim of such end, ang hirap din pala. It’s as if, you want to exert every extra effort just for you to make up for the lost chances. Haisst…ganito pala, when you feel that you don’t have plenty of time, you would as much strive to be watchful of your own thoughts and decisions in embracing God’s way instead of giving-in to your weaknesses and lame excuses. It has been useless pala allowing yourself to be pressured by financial problems while you sacrifice your health – for when your health already suffers, that’s the only time you’d realize that you have actually sinned against God because your “productivity mindset” has not been for “longtime perspective”!
Way to make ourselves ready? Here’s what I’ve realized: “the currency in heaven is never any amount of money” — BUT LOVE — which we need to share while preparing for His “coming”. It’s our ACT OF GRATITUDE to such love when we have accepted to play part in God’s great plan which is to make everyone of us “walk in the light of the Lord”.
Commit your work to the Lord, then it will succeed. — Proverbs 16:3
This is it I guess – the blessing that we need to be ready about! God wants us to flourish as a tree – so that we can continually give even when we’re no longer personally around to still give. #sunset
