Return to the Awareness of All that You Are

Time Out! It is time for a personal time out! It’s interesting we can often see when someone else needs a time out to settle down, regroup, re-energize, but we often don’t see or better yet pay attention to the signs in our ourselves. If you are not feeling like being the best version of you that you can be, then maybe you need a time out. Take some time to be alone even if only for five minutes.

During this time out, actively choose to reconnect with yourself. Take a few calming breathes to reconnect with your body. Take a minute to feel your heart center open while you breathe to the love within you and around you. Remind yourself that while you have a mind, you are not your mind. You are more. You are made of more than the endless chatter of your mind. We are each born with a body, a mind, feelings, intuition, ego, and natural talents. The secret to returning to the awareness of all that we are is found in the order by which we allow ourselves to be directed.

For most of us we have been following the order: (notice how they fade in order of use)
ego leadThis order does not produce success or fulfillment in life.
In contrast, the most successful order to follow is:intuition leadDuring your time out take a minute to reflect on yourself and pick which aspect out of the six listed above has been leading you or misleading you. If needed, consciously choose again which aspect out of the six to lead you. Return to the awareness of all that you are. You are divinely created with your power rooted in love and light. The ego creates doubt, fear, and brings up your defenses. Let it go. Push the ego aside to get to your true self.

Through all my studies and research, it is our quiet inner voice, which most know as intuition, that is the voice from divine source, spirit, or our higher self. Intuition often uses our feelings to communicate with us. Learn to honor your feelings to follow your intuition. Another way to know intuition from ego is the ego is concerned with itself and comes to you in “I” statements. Intuition is concerned for you and comes to you in “you” statements. For example, while in a meeting someone is going off on something you don’t agree with, your ego might say “I don’t have to listen to this. This idiot doesn’t know what he is talking about”; while your intuition might say “You should let him speak his peace so he will be able to listen to you. You might find some common ground by listening”.

The lives we create for ourselves boil down to our thoughts, our words, and our actions. In fact, each day is a result of our thoughts, our words, and our actions. While our thoughts come from our mind, remember we are more than our minds. Is your mind being led by your ego or your divine guidance of intuition? The first step is to keep our thoughts in line with who we are and who we want to be. Why? Because our thoughts produce our words and our actions. Together thought, word, and action produce our reality. For more insight in to how thoughts, words, and actions create our reality, check out my post, You Create Your Reality.

So back to our time out …

  1. You took a minute to breathe,
  2. You took a minute to open your heart to your breath and to love all around you,
  3. You took a minute to pinpoint which of the six aspects has been leading you;
  4. Now take a minute to adjust your thoughts to be in alignment with who you want to be.
  5. Then take the last minute to voice your commitment to your alignment, give thanks for your decision and physically take a step forward.

Congratulations you just returned to the awareness of all that you are!!!

Ready for more, download my One-Week Challenge. You can do it! Do you have other ideas on ways to return to the true you? I would love to hear them. Would you like more information on the six human aspects we are all born with?  Please comment below.

Dear Lord of All,
Be with me now,
Guide me in my thoughts to choose love, to choose light,
Open my heart to the possibilities that abound,
Open my heart to understanding that which I cannot understand,
Release any judgement, fear, doubt, or anger from within me,
Replace these with seeds of grace, love, & understanding,
Replace my darkness with your light,
Fill me with the awareness of all that I am,
I ask this in gracious gratitude for, so it is,
Amen.

Path of Light is the Way

We are more than we think we are, for we are made in God’s image. We are beings of the light. The issue is we have not accepted our power, our potential. We have been and are being programmed in this world to have the perception this is all there is, this is all we can do, and this is all we can have in this life. But it is not true. We each have within us the power to be all we ever imagined we could be. We are unlimited light beings created to co-create with our God a beautiful world of light and love.

Why do we not see this in ourselves? Because we have been programed since birth with limiting beliefs, rules, laws, religion, and government to be kept in the dark of our true source of power.  That power is our divine light source within us and it is a part of us just like our heart or our brain. Many are beginning to wake up to the realization that we are more than we had thought or were taught, myself included. Throughout my life I have had this inner knowing there was more. I would begin to explore this calling many times only to be distracted by another world event or another religious teaching. Each time I would slip back into the matrix of the world as we know it. But within the past couple of years, I have been able to explore deeper within myself to find the source of power which so many don’t want me to find. It is my divine light source otherwise known as my soul or my spirit or my higher self.

Interestingly enough, my journey within was spurred again without distraction after being harassed and slandered by my employer the Catholic Church. After eight years of dedicated service along with an extremely successful track record in parish management, a sacrificial lamb was needed to appease a small group of loud problem parents from the parish school. Ironically, I had joked it was my crucifixion unbeknownst to me that it really would be. The small crowd of parents didn’t like the changes being implemented to make them accountable for the cost of tuition and the state of the school. They expected the church to pay for their children’s education and to run the school without the need to adhere to any outside regulations. I became the target for their anger at being called out for their actions. They began a smear campaign against me with the diocese demanding action. They lied, they edited video, they wrote letters. Wow – now that I think about it, it reminds me of mainstream media with their one-sided story telling. Long story short, it was determined by the diocese that I was a problem and needed to go away for them to appease the parents and to remain the supreme church authority. After my duties were cut and my name slandered, I quit. I saw first-hand from eight years of church management the control the church uses over its parishioners to keep them in the dark and to keep them in their matrix. Power, greed, abuse – yes it does all exist within the catholic church. Although I believe these problems also exist in other religious denominations, in our government, in our world. I cover a few of these in the posts: Out of the Shadows, Into the Light; Distortion & Illusion; and Light Overcomes Dark.

After my church harassment experience, I became disillusioned with the religious illusion which began my purposeful journey to find my power by following the light that called from within me. I can tell you that after two years of actively following the path of light from within that I am happier than ever with more confidence and freedom to shine my light a little brighter each day. I am so grateful and thankful for all this journey has taught me and continues to teach me. I want to share with you some of my favorites from my journey to date in hopes they may inspire you to follow your path of light within…

Here are a some of my Favorite Books:

Awaken The Spirit Within by Rebecca Rosen –

Love, love, love this book!!! It offers so much insight into the spirit world, the physical world along with connecting religious beliefs.

Conversations with God Book 1 by Neale Donald Walsch –

Spirit guided me to this book just after it was released which was back in 1995. It resonated with me to my core. Then another distraction in life took me down the rabbit hole back into the matrix of our programmed world. However, the insights gained from this book have come back to me time and time again.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra –

Simple quick read with very profound insight into our world and the natural laws or universal laws that govern it.

Channeling the Guides and Angels of Light by Melanie Beckler –

I discovered Melanie first on Pinterest then on YouTube. I subscribe to her blog and her videos. This book contains meditations channeled from the spirit world to guide us in understanding the light and the power within us which connects to source otherwise known as God. Her style is simple, basic, and down to earth.

Everyday A Friday and Think Better, Live Better by Joel Osteen –

These are Christian based books for living your purpose in life. Simple inspiring reads. For some reason I don’t like to view or listen to Joel Osteen, but I love his positive writing. I learned from Joel to bloom where I am planted – no matter where it is!

Imagine Big by Terry Savelle Foy –

Terry is another Christian writer who I discovered a year ago on YouTube. She is so motivating and inspirational to follow the dreams inside you because God put them there for a reason. She gives a lot of success tips and tricks as she goes along.

Here are a Few of my Favorite Videos:  (Sometimes I listen to the videos while driving since I don’t always have the time to sit to watch and listen.  More important to listen than to watch these.)

Crash Course of Spirituality by Mindvalley

47 minute video on thinking outside spiritual and religious paradigms

Dr. Michael Beckwith with Oprah Super Soul Conversation

30 minute podcast on the power within each of us along with spiritual discovery

Exploring the Event by Collective Evolution

48 minute video exploring from a reason and logic stance the spiritual event that so many have been talking about for a few years but has not happened and how looking through a different lens helps bring clarity to the process.

Conscious Deprogramming by Collective Evolution

7 minute video which is the third part to a four-part series, but I think this is the best summary to cover the four parts. I think Collective Evolution is perfect for the skeptic. Sometimes I am a skeptic looking for more facts to help me understand a concept or event. I have found Collective Evolution to be a neutral lens to look at deeper subjects.

It is important to remember you have the do the work. We can’t just “think” it. We have to “be” it, if we want things to change. Lastly, I would like to share with you another favorite of mine from Marianne Williamson’s book “A Return to Love”…

Embody Your Highest Light, Your Highest Truth

As I sit and ponder this divinely inspired topic, I think this is a conscious choice we must actively decide if we want to live it. It is not a one-time deal or decision. It is a day by day active decision much like any habit we are trying to form before we can live it without consciously thinking about it. I still remind myself to stay centered in light and love every day! It seems there is almost always a daily challenge that comes up where I have to remind myself to breathe and consciously choose the light. The good news is it is easier and easier to change my thoughts, actions and vibration to that of the light which is the highest truth I want to live!

The secret to my success is to ask! Ask for help from God, Holy Spirit, Angels. They are all real and all eager to assist and help … but must be asked! This is due to the Right of Free Will. If you need a review on this check out the post Lift the Veil and Guard Your Right of Free Will. Basically, the spirit world may not intervene in the physical world unless given permission. So, say Yes! And Ask!

Your highest light is going to be grounded in love and service for all. Each person will have their own definition of their highest light – or – the way in which they can bring love and help others in the process to evolve. For me, writing these posts are a big part of shining my light in the world. If one person is moved to be a better version of his or herself, then I have helped another by shining my light and love. We all must start somewhere, and this is my start to embody my highest light, my highest truth and to put it out there in the world. It doesn’t have to be big. You just have to start.

I spend time volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) once a month for a few hours. That’s another start. I am happy to cook and clean for my family and friends which is another avenue to shine my light. If I post on social media, I am conscious now to make it positive and to be a reflection of the light and of my truth. If I am going to participate in an event, outing, or show, I pay attention to whether my participation is in line or in vibration with embodying my highest light, my highest truth. I am doing it one day at a time and you can too! One decision at a time to be the person you want to be in this world.

Spend time just pondering this topic for the next few days to see how it reveals itself to you.   What comes up for you?  How do you shine your highest light? Your highest truth? Do you have any secrets on accomplishing this that just might help me or others? I would love to hear about it, please comment below!!! In closing it seems appropriate to have a prayer which includes asking for assistance in living our highest light and truth!

Dear Lord of All,
Open my eyes to see,
Open my ears to hear,
Open my heart to feel,
Give me the courage to shine my light of love in this world today, tomorrow,
and the day after that,
Give me strength to keep going and to not give up on my dreams or myself or on you,
Give me wisdom to know the way,
I ask this today and everyday,
that you walk with me, guiding me, leading me
I ask that you shine your light and your truth ahead of me
that I might know you, to follow you,
I thank you for all that is and ever will be,
I ask all this in gracious gratitude for, so it is,
Amen.

Shift Your Perspective

You could have a big trajectory shift this week … if you are willing to shift your perspective. By consciously choosing to shift your perspective you will also shift your reality!

Did you take a couple of weeks to turn off the outside world through turning off media to see how lighter you could feel? I talked about the two-week challenge to turn off and lighten up in the post “Distortion and Illusion”.

By doing this you change your filter or lens by which you view the world. This in turn is also a change in your perspective. Notice how when you do this, your view of reality changes with you as well. When you look at the world through your own senses and thoughts rather than being programmed by outside media, your outlook will be programmed by you for you. Without the outside distraction, you begin to notice what is important for you in this world. What do you see in this world that you would like to celebrate or to change?

For me personally, when I tune into me without the outside distractions, I can feel the possibilities in my life. I can sense the possibilities for our world when we all stay centered on the light of love recognizing we are all one with one another. I sense not only my potential but all our potential. I notice what is important to me to change in my community to make the world a little better. Don’t let outside media program you to feel down or small or powerless. We have God given potential inside of us that is our divine gift as being made in God’s image.

So, stand up in your own truth that you are a child of God with infinite potential and possibility. No one can take that from you. They can try to “program” you that you have no power, but they can’t take your power for it was divinely given to you at birth. As we remember that we are all one and help one another to stand in power and truth, we each begin to realize our potential as divine light beings.

Let’s work on shifting our perspective from outside of us to inside of us! Make way for your new path by closing out old beliefs that no longer serve to fill you up from the inside. Let go of old relationships or hurt that drain you by setting them free with forgiveness. Close out old projects or clutter from your life to make way for the new to enter your life. Take a minute right now to think about what is no longer serving you in this life. How would your life change if you would let that go?

Today set an intention to let go of one thing that no longer serves you in your life. Whatever bubbled up in your mind when you first asked yourself the question is the first thing that needs your attention. Be willing to shift your perspective, to be open, to let go. Open your heart to all the universe wants to bring into your life … although you made need to make some space for it by letting go of that which no longer serves.

Most of us have been unconsciously creating our world. Imagine what we can do when we become conscious, mindful, and deliberate with our intentions in the creation of our world. By consciously choosing to shift your perspective, you also shift your reality!

Guard Your Right of Free Will

What have you called forth in your life that you are not even aware of? We are living the lives we created for ourselves by our own thoughts, words, and actions as we discussed in the last post. If we want to change our world, then we need to change our thoughts, words, and actions which sounds a lot easier than it is to live, I know. Another important piece to look at in making lasting change in our world is how we use our right of free will. One of the most important universal laws for humans is the Law of Free Will.

As discussed in previous posts, our free will and what we do with it also impacts our world since the Law of Free Will does not act independently. We also have the Law of Cause and Effect (also known as karma). Don’t believe in karma … have you heard of the golden rule? Treat others as you would like to be treated. They are one in the same. Remember the saying what goes around, comes around.

I am going to short cut this for you. We have been given the freedom as humans to do what we want in this world (law of free will) in addition to this freedom comes the caveat that our choices have consequences (law of cause and effect). This was by divine design by God. God does not make things happen or not happen in this world – we do that on our own – consciously or unconsciously.

I think everyone understands when they consciously make a choice but how can someone unconsciously make a choice? I have learned the term “tacit consent” to explain that one. Let’s look at each word separately, tacit as defined means unvoiced, unspoken, silent, implied, understood without being spoken. To consent is defined as to agree, approve or permit. So, tacit consent is when we imply approval to an action or choice by remaining silent. Ahh, here is that silent theme again which allows the darkness to grow in our lives and our world without anyone saying a word or being the wiser.

Now you are thinking well some people might do that but not me, well, think again! We have all fallen prey to this tactic whether we were aware of it or not. Thus, we unconsciously gave silent consent. Now I know you are thinking where? How? When?

We did it by watching a television show. We did it by listening and singing along with the lyrics of music. We did it by listening to the news or reading a book. We did it by going to the movies or playing video games. What? How can that be? I don’t agree with everything I watch, read, or listen to … but I also didn’t voice no that is wrong or turn it off which is how the darkness works to spread it tentacles into our lives. The darkness was shown as a force with tentacles wrapping around earth in the movie A Wrinkle in Time.

After learning about tacit consent and its effects, I started reviewing myself for unconscious choices I had made. I used the watch the tv series “Scandal”. It was a series about politics, secrets, good guys, and bad guys. It was hugely, popular and I was a fan. Although I must admit it had some pretty dark scenes that I was not completely comfortable, but I kept watching. In fact, I think it was the fifth year that it became so dark I started thinking to myself that I am not going to keep watching this if it keeps up. I was happy to see the sixth and final year had cut back on the darkness, so I watched the series to its conclusion with the seventh season. As I silently watched the show for six years, I saw lies, deception, abuse, torture, killings, theft, voting fraud, drugs, terrorism, sex, infidelity, and more I am sure – those are just the highlights that come to mind.

There are so many shows and movies playing these scenes as entertainment for us as we silently watch again and again. The lyrics in some music are so profane that now music is marked as explicit or not. I had to drive my son’s truck to work one day so I thought I will check out the music in his CD player. The CD player holds 5 discs. I listened to one song on disc one and it was so bad I ejected that disc. I did the same with disc two and then with disc three, four, and five. As a parent, I did have the sense to ask my children why they would want to put that kind of trash in their heads by listening to that kind of music. I watched my kids play the video game “Call of Duty” all the time wondering about its effects. On the one hand it is so violent does it promote violence, but on the other hand I thought well if there is a need to defend oneself then they will have learned how … now how warped is that thinking? The internet has brought all types of “information” into our homes such as pornography, bomb making, cyber-bullying, cyber-trafficking, and radical recruitment just to name a few.

As you can see, in every part of our lives we are making conscious and unconscious choices whether we were aware of it or not. These choices were us expressing our free will in society. We were using our thoughts, words, actions and inactions to create our reality. The take away here is to wake up and stay conscious in your thoughts, words, actions and inactions. Guard your right of free will for it is being used by you every day and in every way whether you are aware of it or not and as such you will live the result (effect) of those choices.

I would ask that you really spend some time with this and dive deep. What have you consciously allowed and unconsciously allowed into your mind, body, and environment? What can we do to remain more conscious or mindful in our daily lives? I would love to hear from you!  These posts have been building one on the other so you might want to go back to previous posts if needed.

Life is a combination of destiny and free will.
Rain is destiny;
If you get wet or not is free will!

Lift the Veil

Happy Hallow’s Eve! This is the time of year the veil between our physical world and the spiritual world is very thin such as the veil between the living and the deceased. The Catholic church even celebrates this time of the dead with All Saints day on November 1, All Souls day on November 2, and the rest of November dedicated to remembering the dead. The Samhain, part of the ancient Celtic harvest festivals, is believed partially responsible for the Christian adoption of the holiday. This ancient festival dates back over 2000 years. It celebrates the end of summer (the light part of the year) and the beginning of winter (the dark part of the year). Many of these celebrations are tied to the harvest of crops in the fall. Winter is meant to be a time of dormant rest for both the land and the people to replenish and renew for the spring … just like a bear’s hibernation!

The thinning veil between our physical world and our spiritual world is meant to be a time of joy not fear. It is a time to lovingly remember those who have gone before us. It is a time, maybe, to reconnect with our deceased loved ones through prayer or meditation. So, I’ll confess I remain open to all forms of spirituality that focus on love and light. I do not believe there is any one right religion or faith to follow. We all need to follow what feels right and connects with our heart. Given that, I have been to a few mediums to check it out so to speak. After my dad passed away in 2011, I went to one in 2012 with my sister with the intention of connecting with my dad. I had been to this person before and found her reading to be genuine. As we began, she asked if there was anyone I was hoping to communicate with and I said my dad. He didn’t come through at first. If you have had a “reading” before you know there are other spirits who might be anxious to speak with you. My grandfather came through first. Then she asked for my dad to come through if he would like – when they say “come through” they are talking about the veil. So, in the middle of this reading (she is very laid back) she starts laughing and saying wait a minute. She says my dad is having a hard time as this is his first time through the veil and she needs to help him. Then she started laughing again saying he says he has a joke for her did she want to hear it. I knew then and there that it was my dad. He was always making a joke if the opportunity arose! His presence wasn’t there long but it was so joyful and loving. She helped him to go back through the veil then explained how he was learning how the spiritual world worked since he was fairly new and that his spiritual vibration would strengthen over time. It is through vibration that the physical world and the spiritual world can communicate. The spiritual world is a much higher vibration than the physical world. For the spiritual world to communicate with the physical world they must learn to slow their vibration to ours.

As you can see the veil between the physical and spiritual can be loving and does not need to be scary. Vibration was discussed in the last post which talked about us keeping a higher vibration to be operating from love and light. The spiritual realm is made up of love and light which explains why they are at a much higher vibration than us. There is no need to worry or be scared as a human with the right of free will, you can say only those spirits with my highest and greatest good or only those with loving intention may come through to you. You have the right given by the law of free will to say no to dark spirits or energies. It is this right to say no to the dark side that we need to exercise more over all in our world. We need to collectively and consciously say no to the darkness of distortion, falsehoods, and evil in our world. When we collectively do this while also envisioning a world of truth, light and love our world will change. Our world will shift to the light when we collectively call it forth.

We must lift the veil of the illusion that we are separate from each other and from our one God source. Accepting we are divine spiritual beings connected to God and to each other frees us from the falsehoods, doubt, chaos, and fear the dark side wishes to control us with in our world. Accepting our birthright as children of God empowers us to be free to be all we can be, to call forth and create a world of light. Choice is ours by the law of free will. We can choose differently. We can see and acknowledge the darkness in our world and then consciously choose no, consciously choose a different path based in love for one another and for all.

What would happen in our world if we were to believe this new paradigm? What would happen if we feel the fear but step out in faith anyway? What would happen if we turned off the outside distractions instead focusing on our intuition otherwise known as our divine guidance system? I am interested in what you see or think about our world …. please comment below.

I am going to close with another excerpt I had written that puts the story of Adam and Eve and the power of doubt in our world in a whole new context:

            God gave us more divinity in giving us a free will. Each of us has the free will to experience life as we choose. Yes, there are consequences to our choices and we will get into that later in the book. For now, it is important to know we live in a divine dichotomy of which we have free will which leads me to my next story. Everyone knows the story of Adam and Eve. The main players in the story are Adam, Eve, God and the snake. I have heard many people’s take on this classic but only one resonated with me and has stayed with me. In this sermon, the downfall for Adam and Eve was the doubt created by darkness from the snake. Remember, Adam and Eve were not living in a divine dichotomy at that point. They only knew good. God showed them all that was theirs to enjoy and live happily. God did warn them not to eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge for it would not be good for them. The snake comes along representing evil. The snake creates doubt by encouraging Eve to eat fruit from the tree, imagine the following scenario. Eve’s first response to the snake is “No, God told us not to eat from the tree.” The snake is cleaver and manipulative. The snake asks Eve, “Did you hear God say this?” Eve says, “No she did not hear God say it. God said it to Adam and Adam told her.” The snake presses his point, “So you don’t know for sure if God said this himself?” Eve, only knowing truth and light as this point, says “Well no I did not hear it myself.” The snake plants more doubt, “So you’re not sure God said it, maybe Adam wants it for himself. If God has given you everything here, then why not this tree? You said you didn’t hear God say it. Go ahead Eve, try the fruit of the tree there must be something about this tree Adam is not telling you.” The snake creates enough doubt and questions for Eve, that she eats the fruit of the tree … and the divine dichotomy or duality begins. Adam and Eve now know love and fear; right and wrong; joy and pain; naked and clothed; light and dark; masculine and feminine. God did not stop Eve for He gave her free will just like you and me. He wasn’t angry. He understood the consequences of the action which we are all still living today – the challenge of living in the veil of duality. It is a parable of how living simply was made challenging without accepting God as the Source, the truth and instead listening to the doubt created by the snake.

Raise Your Vibration

TGIF! It’s Friday and that is normally a good vibration day! Through our experiences, perception, and expectations Friday is a high vibrational day. We expect to relax on the weekend. We look forward to getting off work. We have memories of fun weekends which start with Friday. These thoughts, feelings, and memories are what raise our vibration up. When we raise our vibration, we feel better, we see things differently, we become more optimistic. I love the book “Every Day A Friday” by Joel Osteen for it talks about living each day with the same outlook as we do a Friday. Life is really all about our outlook and perception – both of which are completely within our control.

In my last post I took a walk on the dark side. Acknowledging the darkness in the world would lower my vibration, you would think, but after bringing acceptance to the truth I feel lighter. It took time for me to reach acceptance as the silence of disbelief made me remember my first post “Out of the Shadows, Into the Light.” It is the silence that can keep the darkness hidden and allow it to grow. Once we bring the dark secrets to light we can process them and choose to live differently. We need to be honest with one another. We need to talk about the truth as we know it. Together we build a better world when we collectively acknowledge past wrongs as not acceptable. When we collectively raise our vibration, we help the whole world raise its vibration.

So, what kind of vibration am I talking about? I am talking about the vibrational energy we send out with our thoughts, feelings, and words. I know everyone has experienced the feeling of love when holding a baby, a puppy, or a kitten. That feeling emitted vibrational energy. I have been so mad before as to see red, scream and yell. That was a completely different vibrational energy being sent. This has been studied with many resources and charts available depicting the vibration level attributed to thoughts, feelings, and words. Here are two different ones:

Image result for vibrational frequency chartRelated image

As shown by these charts, positive thoughts, feelings, and words raise your vibration leading to more positive energy. Negative thoughts, feelings, and words lower your vibration leading to more negative energy. One of the biggest changes we can make in our lives is to look at our own belief systems and judgements to see where we are holding ourselves back from raising our vibration. We hold on to beliefs that we formed somewhere in our lifetime that keep us from reaching our full potential. Do any of these comments sound familiar?

“I am not good enough …”

“I am not smart enough …”

“I am not good-looking enough …”

One hidden belief I had that I recently uncovered was it was bad to be rich. One of my goals in life was to be wealthy but each time I looked at this I would also tell myself not too wealthy because that was wrong. I believed it was bad to have so much when others do not, even though part of my desire to have wealth was to be able to create and fund changes I would like to see in the world. It wasn’t until recently when I was taking a free mini-class by Harv Eker that I realized money had nothing to do with being good or bad. There are rich people who are good and rich people who are bad. There are poor people who are good and poor people who are bad. There are people in the middle who are good and people in the middle who are bad. Money is simply another energy source or a tool in the world which we can use for good or we can use for bad. If we put judgement on people with or without money that is our own judgement, but the money has nothing to do with it.

Wow! That was an eye opener for me. Judgement is such a huge issue for humanity. We judge on money, race, religion, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, zip code, style of dress and the list goes on. Judgement falls below the 200 mark on the vibrational energy scale. I am working on eliminating judgement from my life and I encourage everyone else to do the same. None of us know what storm another has endured to bring them to this moment in time. Here are few good movies that illustrate this with a positive vibration: The Shack; I Can Only Imagine; A Wrinkle In Time.

One last idea I want to leave you with is you absorb the energy of those around you. You can choose to be around people who have positive high vibrational energy. If you don’t have anyone like that to be around then listen to their podcasts, read their books, or watch their videos or shows.

Important words from Peter Voogd:

If you hang around five confident people, you will be the sixth.

If you hang around five intelligent people, you will be the sixth.

If you hang around five millionaires, you will be the sixth.

If you hang around five idiots, you will be the sixth.

If you hang around five broke people, you will be the sixth.

It’s inevitable.

So, do you have any tips you would like to share on how you stay positive and loving in life?  Please comment below.

Call Forth Peace

Today I am walking on the dark side. We live in duality thus good and evil are both present in our world. I choose to focus on love and light, however, that does not make the fear and darkness nonexistent. It has been brought to my attention in the past day that ignoring the dark is not bringing light to the dark. How was this brought to my attention? I believe there are no coincidences in life. All happens as it should. And when the student is ready, the teacher appears. I believe we are given divine guidance in our lives and the more we are open to this guidance, the more it reveals itself.

I was given a list of topics for my blog by divine guidance. Yes, I know it sounds a bit sketchy, but it is true. I was listening to a meditation while I was half awake and half asleep, when this stream of topics was given; and I wrote them down as I was urged to do. Since that time, I have tried to locate the meditation to review it for content in a more awake state however I cannot find it. I have checked my history logs with no success. At this point, I am accepting it as divinely given for me to pass along. So, here we are; and this is the next topic on the list. For each topic I ask for inspiration and guidance from Spirit. I pay attention to things I see, read, hear or encounter that might relate to the topic.

In contemplating “Call Forth Peace” over the past couple of days, I have been led to articles and videos discussing the need to be able to acknowledge the evil in the world. I admit I have preferred to ignore it since I do not like to go there, but then the question becomes how am I changing it, if I choose to ignore it? I guess it is like an addiction, the first step is admitting.

One resource channel I follow is the Collective Evolution. Their logical, objective, and for the greater good approach resonates with me as truth. I happened upon this video (remember there are no coincidences when working with Spirit) which started my realization that I must be willing to go there to make a difference. The podcast is about 50 minutes but well worth the time to become open to shifting your perspective:

              After listening to this podcast, I thought well that is me because I don’t like to go there, but maybe it is time to dip my foot in the conspiracy water for 9/11. Many of my family members believe 9/11 was planned and our government was in on the plan. I have a hard time believing the conspiracy because I have a hard time accepting that such evil could exist. With my new willingness to go there, I did some research.  Indeed there does seem to be an incredible amount of evidence to suggest it was a deliberate act of evil for the elite to generate hate and war which turns into more money and power. Here is one source of information that offers many other sources:

https://www.wanttoknow.info/911information

              So, what do I feel after going there? I feel anger, sadness, disgust and hatred. I didn’t want to go there for a reason. I had a hard time sleeping thinking of all the innocent lives lost, all the destruction, and all the lives forever changed … for someone else’s profit. It is sick. But if I want to call forth peace in our world, then I have to diagnosis the sickness and treat it. I must shine the light on the darkness in our world, bring the truth to the light, then call forth the peace which most all of humanity seeks.

Anger, hatred, and fighting one another is not going to bring peace. We must return to love. We must remember we are all one. We must look at the truth and learn.   We must raise one another up. We must say no to being used as pawns in this game of life. It can be a scary world which is why I have not wanted to go there. But I do believe the tide is turning. Love is returning to our world. Let’s all be of one voice and mind to call forth peace!

On the horizon is the migrant caravan and we must ask ourselves what is this about? This event was organized and funded by the top elites in the world for some reason. It was meant to be a show down. Unfortunately, continued strife and war makes money and generates power for some. What if we step out of this matrix created for us that keeps us trapped? What if money was no longer in power because it was not needed? What if we help one another as friends, neighbors, and communities? What would we do if our world drastically changed … for the better … in the long run?

I don’t have the answers. I do know that together, collectively, we can bring forth peace when we remember we are all one. When we return to love and understanding for one another. When we start seeking to serve one another versus what we can get from one another, the world as we know it will shift. So, the final question is … how will you serve to call forth peace?

Remain in Light & Peace

It has been challenging for me, lately, to remain in light and peace even though I know to let go and focus on the light. We are in the process of closing a home loan and everyday there seems to be one more piece of paper needed by the bank. It is a long tedious process thanks to new rules and regulations designed to protect – protect what I am not sure. More regulation to protect me is the narrative although I am not feeling the benefit, but I am feeling the invasion into our private financial lives along with the work to produce the audit trial of every financial transaction in our history. Outside of work and family there are other demands on our time and energy that sometimes we become weighted down. We need to lighten our load in life. We need to find our joy.

When everything seems a challenge, we need to step back, reevaluate and go within ourselves. We need to consciously choose light and peace. I am reminding myself of this as I send the same document to the bank for the third time! I am reminding myself of this as I turn the channel from the news to a comedy show because I would rather be happy then weighted down with negative news. Have you ever noticed it is almost always negative news? Why is that? To keep us focused on the negative? Let’s focus on the positive for a change.

For every burden there is a blessing. It is my choice to focus on the burden or the blessing. I choose the blessing. I choose to give thanks for every life lesson I have lived has brought me to this moment. This was vividly brought to life for me last February when our house flooded. Working plumbing and a flushing toilet are true blessings, believe me I know after living without them for 2 weeks. I say thank you every day for a flushing toilet now! There are many in our world who don’t have access to working plumbing. It is a gift and if you have it give thanks for this blessing in your life. It took six months after the flood for our lives to get back to normal and ours was a small flood compared to other natural disasters. For many affected by a natural disaster it will take years to recover, for things to return to normal.

Imagine all those affected by hurricane Michael whose lives have been turned upside down after the storm. They can be bitter from the loss or thankful for what was saved. The good in people always seems to shine through in a crisis. This just might confirm the fact we are light beings born of pure good, our divine nature. As humans we are all connected, we are all one. I believe by human nature we strive to help one another, to raise each other up. Some physically help clean up the mess and rebuild. Some financially help by donations. Some spiritually help by prayers of strength and support. All forms of support are important for each drop creates a ripple effect in our world to spread light, love, and peace.

When we operate from light and peace, we shine our light into the world. We remain connected to our source, to God through our thoughts, actions, and intentions. Our lives begin to flow more easily when we operate from light and peace. Life begins to sychronistically fall into place when you are in the flow of source, of light and peace. So, the next time life gets you down, remember to take a step back. Breathe. Re-evaluate the situation. Ask for divine guidance and support. Take a minute to feel your source of light and peace from your heart center. Now take your next step…

Father of All,

I ask you to be with me now, to guide me now, to strengthen me now,

Thank you for all the blessings in my life,

(if I can’t see them, then please open my eyes to them)

And so it is, Amen.

We Are Light Beings

We are more than we think we are. We are more than the narrative we have heard. We are more. We are the light when we shine love and truth. In fact, we are light beings or beings of the light. The light is divine source of love, of peace, of God. We are children of the light. As such we are spiritual beings in a human body. Many are awakening to the knowing we are more than our bodies. We are becoming conscious of ourselves and of our world.

I believe we are born with this knowledge inside of us. I have written a book about this divine gift that is within us which can be used to find our fulfillment in life, our happiness, our purpose. I believe if we open ourselves up to the truth of who we are, we open a new world of peace and happiness, a new world of possibilities.

I would like to offer some different ways to connect to this truth for you to discover what connects and resonates with your soul. We are each uniquely made. As such we each learn and connect with spirit in our own way. So, here are a few of my favorites.

I love this video as it gives a broad overview and yet is detailed as to how we are spiritual light beings in a human world. It is titled “Expand Your Spiritual Awareness & Embrace A New World of World of Limitless Possibilities” by Michael Beckwith:

This song is a wonderful prayer or meditation. It is “Open The Eyes of My Heart”
by Michael Smith:

Here is a contemporary song from the movie “The Greatest Showman” which is very profound when you listen closely to the lyrics:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywMeInRS8_w

In all of these we ask to be open to the possibilities. In our world today, imagine if we all “came alive” to our full potential to create a world full of love, peace, joy, and limitless possibilities.

An excerpt from my book … As humans we have the free will to accept or reject God, the spiritual realm from which we are born, and how natural laws govern our world. It is interesting to know that God incorporated the law of free will into our lives from the beginning. This was his purposeful divine design. We are born in and of God. His divine plan is we all come to know and experience we are one. Together we are the All. However, it is by our choice that we accept all that we are. God is an all loving, all-encompassing God. God will not force his will over ours. God waits for us to come to know him, to awaken to him, to awaken to all that we are in the All. It is wonderful that we can choose to be all that we are in God.

Let’s ask to have our eyes opened, ask for our hearts to be opened.

Let’s live in the light of love.
