Spiritual Awakening: Time To Change The World!!!
When you are going through the spiritual awakening process you realize that you are not only changing yourself but you are changing the world. When you commit to taking action to be more in tune with your spirituality and to tap into your divine guidance system you take the steps that will enhance your personal and professional life thus changing the world. When you awake in the morning you should be looking for ways to be of service and value to others. In finding and taking advantage of the opportunities to be of service and value you will witness the small changes that lead to changing the world. When you decide it is time to change the world and you take action you will begin to see the dramatic changes that create a collective consciousness that creates a positive shift in your life and the lives of others. As you move forward in the quest to change the world you will experience personal and professional growth that will allow to enjoy the prosperity that is your birthright.
In our life we will witness injustice and as spiritual beings it is our responsibility to step in and use the divine guidance and our divine guidance to stop the injustice and change the world. If we turn a blind eye to the injustice we are just as guilty as those committing the injustice. So many are fearful of speaking up that they allow the injustice to continue and thus when it continues they feel guilt. Fear and guilt are energy drainers and stop you from making a positive difference in the world. We all have a voice and it is time to use our collective voices to change the world. Sometimes eradicating a perceived problem such as a hungry child is simply to buy and prepare food for the child. Sometimes the way to assist a homeless person is simply to talk to the person and see if they desire help to improve their human condition. In most cases you can change the world simply by interacting with people and helping them to step into their power and showing them how to use their talents. Their are certain things you can do to change the world. You can show love and compassion in all you do. You can forgive yourself and others for their transgressions. You can assume an attitude of gratitude. The choice is yours to tap into your spirituality and change the world. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Time To Dance!!!
In the spiritual awakening process there comes a time to dance and to celebrate life. As I sit down to write this entry I reflect and realize that we have many reasons to dance and celebrate what GOD is doing in our lives. We have choices on what we focus on and what what we dance about. I dance because I have been given another day to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays, a day to share FREE HUGS, a day to share a positive message, a day to take the focus on the negativity being portrayed in the media, and a day to simply share positivism. I was on way way to lunch with my dad today and a woman was walking by us and I said smile it will get better she smiled and said thank you. This was my way of doing my dance of positivism simply by sharing a smile and being a lifter. Celebrating life should become a priority so as to enhance our spiritual awakening process. I have come to use the idea that when I wake up in the morning and there is not a white chalk line around my body I know it is going to be a good day because I am alive. In coming alive and understanding that this is the day the lord hath made be glad and rejoice in it I have been able to dance freely and express my joy for be able to use my GOD given talents to bring some peace, love, joy, and prosperity into the lives of others. When you awake and ask yourself how can I add value to the lives of others and then you seek to do just that at the end of the day you can dance in praise for another day of being free. Once we remove the shackles that are blocking us we are able to give thanks and praise to GOD and understand that all things are possible.
When we remove the chains of bondage that we hold in our mind and go from limiting beliefs to to limitless beliefs we begin to discover powers that allow us to thrive and move forward in a positive direction of our dreams. The only person that can stop you from progressing is you. Once you commit to taking action to remove those shackles you will find yourself dancing in praise and joy more often. When you dance on GOD’s great dance floor you shine your light, honor GOD, and make your world a better place while illuminating the world. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Day By Day!!!
As I awoke today this song came into my mind and for the entire day I couldn’t shake it out. As I have learned through the spiritual awakening process when a message is presented to you take a moment and meditate on it. As I started to think about the lyrics see you more clearly, love you more dearly, follow you more nearly I started to think how important the role GOD plays in our life and the direction he provides for us. Each day we have an opportunity to make a positive impact on our lives and in the lives of others simply by using our gifts for good and using our time as GOD directs us to. Many of my days are spent being of service and value to others and honoring GOD. I have found that taking each day as a single element in my life leads to productive days with outstanding results. All the daily accolades I receive are credited to GOD and The Universal Powers who are showing me the way as I become more and awake in my spirituality. When we awaken and ask ourselves daily how can I add value to someone’s life and then make every effort to do just that we will find that we grow personally and professionally. When we decide to take it day by day and make a mind. body, soul connection we begin to thrive more physically, mentally, and spiritually. When we acknowledge the presence of GOD in our lives we are able to create a oneness consciousness and move forward in the positive direction of our dreams. Many times it is when we are in tune with the message that GOD and The Universal Powers conspire to put us in the places that we need to be so that we can prosper. Today was an excellent example of this as I normally would have gone to The Starbucks on University Drive North of Oakland Park Boulevard in Sunrise, FL but the message from GOD was to go to The Starbucks on Pine Island Road and Sunrise Boulevard in Plantation, FL so I listened to the message and as a result I was able to network with people and share my TV Show, The Anything Bucket, which airs on www.wrpbitv.com on Tuesday at 6:30 PM EDT. I also received the message to wear my Relay For Life gear and the Relay For Life Medallion so I did and this opened up some doors with patrons at Starbucks and allowed me to share my message. each day we have the opportunity to do something to bring peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives if we simply make a commitment to follow GOD and The Universal Powers Message thus I share with you http://main.acsevents.org/goto/jdogg2 as my message from GOD and The Universal Powers was to continue on my quest to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays and share my mission with others.
Everyday we are given 86,400 seconds to use and how we use them sets in motion the events that will determine how much we transcend our lives and the lives of others. I have found that when I sit in mediation in the morning and plan out the day by following the messages that I receive I begin to feel more energized and more productive. I find that is deciding to focus on the moments of the day rather than what happened yesterday and what will happen tomorrow that I am more centered and balanced and that I accomplish more as I become more centered and balanced in spirituality. Some times the tings we do spontaneously in the moment detaching from the outcome reaps the best results. As humans we are programmed to plan the work and work the plan but as spiritual beings we must be willing to diverge from our own plans and allow GOD to guide us so that we can achieve the greatness and prosperity that is our birthright. One of my favorite songs is Seasons Of Love From Rent because it teaches us about using our time to the utmost benefit for ourselves and our community. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: The Great Discovery!!!
I watched today as some people observed Columbus Day and others debated why we celebrate a man who took credit for discovering a region that was already inhabited by Indians. Either way it provided a day of reflection as to what one may be discovering about their own self as they experience the spiritual awakening process. Columbus may get credit for discovering America and many may dislike this but the truth is he was the one who went on journey, put together his team of explorers, and secured the funding. What Columbus’ adventures teaches us is that in order to grow in spirit we must be willing to take a journey, find people to lift us up on this journey, and invest in ourselves so as to make the journey successful. Along the way we will face many trials and tribulations and in overcoming them we will become stronger. Even after our initial journey is complete we will find that there will be those that continue to doubt us or who want to strip us of our accomplishments. There will be those who are consumed with the ugly head of jealousy that we must avoid and cut ties with so that our journey towards spiritual enlightenment can continue. As Columbus has his detractors even after all these years he still has his supporters. It is important to always align yourself with supporters so that you can continue to take action and make your own discoveries.
Like the crew of The Space Shuttle Discovery who went to explore space and as a result grew in mind, body, and spirit we too must take a journey to discover ourselves and thus create a mind, body, soul connection that allows us to flourish and to discover who we are and what our purpose is. We need not go as far as space sometimes it could be a small walk to an area that we created to be our sacred space so that we can meditate upon the questions that we are seeking answers to. In finding our sacred space and being willing to delve deep into who we are and what our purpose is we begin to come alive by answering our calling and creating changes in ourselves that allow us to grow in spirit, in finances, in relationships, and in all that we do. It is when we begin to make great discoveries about ourselves that we are more able to make positive changes to bring things to fruition thus exceeding all goals we have set. In discovering who we are and what we are meant to do we are able to construct a plan with divine guidance that allows us to detach from outcomes, to overcome negative self talk, to leave all negative emotional charges behind, thus allowing us to follow our dreams and remove the naysayers from our life. There will always be doubters and haters and those who do not understand you and it is important to remove these people from your life and surround yourself with lifters, encouragers, and supporters. One of the discoveries that I made recently is that it is important to go where I am celebrated not tolerated. I have stayed away from many events and activities where I did not feel appreciated and comfortable. This had led to the discovery that I have value and if I do not value myself no one else will. I have come to the realization that it is a fact of life that not everyone is going to like you and resonate with your message so stop trying to be a people pleaser and begin to honor yourself and GOD. I have discovered that regardless of the material things you have acquired unless you are service and value to others all that has now meaning. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: The Whole World In My Hand!!!
As I look at the world in a new light as a result of a spiritual awakening I begin to realize that as GOD holds the whole world in his hands we also carry the world with us in our hands. If we are to make the changes we want to make in this world it will take us all joining hands for the common good. In today’s ever evolving world where we are interconnected through social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin we have the power to have the whole world in our hands. We can more effectively spread our spiritual messages sharing our spirituality with others today than in the past. Today we can post about an event or with a positive quote and our reach is expanded. When we have the whole world in our hand it is important to remember to whom much is given much is expected. We have power deep inside of us that when unleashed and used for good we shine a bright light that illuminates the entire world. It is amazing what happens inside of us when we realize that we carry the whole world in our hands and that we are all interconnected in some way. It is with this interconnection that we are able to bring goodness into our life and into the lives others.It is written that when 2 or three are gathered together in my name I am there in the midst of them.
Through this scripture we know that when we gather to honor GOD he is with us allowing us to carry the whole world in our hands. Many may say that the responsibility of having the whole world in your hands is a big burden. Think of it not as a burden but as an opportunity to spread your love to others and bring peace, joy, and prosperity to those you come in contact with as you are out in the world. See yourself as a world unto itself and then join with others who are worlds unto themselves and forge meaningful relationships forged in spirituality that will allow you to carry the whole world in your hands. When I think of being of service and value and carrying the whole world in my hands I think of the following song which is just as relevant today as it was when it was first performed. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: How Is Your Flow?
During the spiritual awakening process while we become action takers it is important to answer the question how is your flow? As you get more and more in tune with your body and create a oneness consciousness you will experience great changes in your personal and professional life. As you adopt positive mantras and utilize principles of positivism you will be able to analyze when you are flowing with positive energy and when you need to repel negative energy. As I am out in the community on a regular basis I encounter many people who should be answering the question how is you flow. as they are in a negative state and thus not prospering the way GOD intends them to. I also meet people who are so positive in their flow that they are being held in GOD’s favor and experiencing the prosperity that is their birthright. We all control the energy that we attract and project. The energy you give off comes back to you 10 fold so through out your day ask yourself how in my flow. If you feel it is at a lower level and you are not vibrating at a level that will create positivity into your life take some action to become more centered and grounded. Remember the energy you bring to anything will determine your flow. If someone begins to become negative to you simply state your thoughts and then go in a direction that will create a more positive environment for you.
Spiritual Awakening: Tools to Help Increase Your Positive Flow!!!
Quotes are great tools and reminders to help us get into a positive flow as we continue to spread our message. Remembering that those ready to receive our message will come to us so we do not have to force our beliefs on anyone.
“The electric energy which motivates us is not within our bodies at all. It is a part of the universal supply which flows through us from the Universal Source with an intensity set by our desires and our will.” ~ Walter Russell, The Man Who Tapped the Secrets of the Universe

Spiritual Awakening: Tell Me Something Good!!!
As I watched the news, which I very rarely do as I do not want to be influenced by the negativity that most new outlets perpetrate so as to increase ratings. Through out the spiritual awakening process I have learned that what we focus on expands thus I would rather focus on the great things GOD is doing in my life and share them with others so as to show them that when you tap into your inner divinity and allow the power inside to be unleashed in a positive way that many good things will occur. My message today is to tell me something good as goodness begets more goodness. I sign my emails and letters with the words Stay Positive. People ask me all the time JDOGG, how can you stay so positive with all the negative things occurring in the world? My answer is if I do not give them credence and I focus on the good that is happening I become more awake spiritually and I can help others to experience a spiritual awakening. There are many issues to tackle in our lifetime however if we go about attacking them we only make them worse. We have had a war on drugs in America and the drug problem has gotten worse. We have had a war on poverty in America and more people are impoverished than ever before? We have been fighting perceived enemies and we have created more turmoil. What is the answer to change how we word things such as instead of being anti-drug become pro health and educate people about the fact that GOD wants them to prosper and treat their body well and the answer doesn’t lie in a bottle or a needle or a pill the answer lies within us when we realize we are all divine children of GOD destined to be great and prosper. Instead of being against poverty become a proponent of wealth development and show people how they can become self sufficient. Instead of judging get to know people as you may find that we are more alike than we are different. Take a moment to share your goodness with others and watch what happens.
If we are to accomplish peace we must become peaceful beings. We must look at what we have and be grateful for it. When we have a little extra it is up to us to share our prosperity. When we become peaceful beings and we begin to share goodness with others we make our world a better place. When I was in The Jaycees we would recite the following creed. I took an oath to be a living example of this creed and today that creed hangs on my refrigerator as a reminder to spread peace wherever I go. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Sowing The Seeds Of Love!!!
Each day when I awake I ask myself how can I add value to someone’s life? Today (10/3/2014) is another FREE HUGS FRIDAY where I put up the FREE HUGS Banner at my local Starbucks and as I write my blog and promote events and businesses I give out FREE HUGS. This is my way of sowing the seeds of love. During the spiritual awakening process I have learned that if you are loving and caring in all you do and you have a definitive goal in mind you will meet with success and grow personally and professionally. In having a vision that is heart centered you are able to be focused and disciplines and thus execute your purpose on a daily basis. Today we have an opportunity to positively impact our lives and the lives of others by simply reaching out and sowing the seeds of love.
Spiritual Awakening: Tools For Sowing The Seeds Of Love!!!
Music and sacred chants can be great tools to help us stay centered and grounded while exploring our inner divinity and making the mind, body, soul connection while we sow the seeds of love. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: The Final At Bat Finishing Strong!!!
Derek Jeeter stepped to the plate at historic Fenway Park in what would be his final at bat in a 20 year career. Jeeter finished strong in dramatic fashio as he hit a single which also gave him a RBI (Run Batted In). As I watched Jeeter’s final at bat I began to think how perhaps some divine guidance was involved as he always carried himself with dignity and grace being of service and value wherever he went. I began to ponder how our final bat will be?Will our spiritual awakening lead us to be like Jeeter and him that game winning RBI or perhaps a Homerun. The key is to start with the end in mind and take the action steps necessary to move forward in our spiritual awakening and work toward spiritual enlightenment. Today ask yourself how your final at bat in life will be remembered.
In that final at bat will you finally understand that you have name and the legacy you leave will forever be associated with that name. Will you live out your dream and finish strong or will you simply coast and look back and wonder what might have been or could have been. The days of should ofs, could ofs, and would ofs need to be retired and the days of doing must be implemented. In living up to your name in every at bat especially that final at bat is tantamount to personal and spiritual growth. I was recently told that my name Jonathan meant sent from GOD. I take this very seriously when I step tot he plate of life and take my at bats. My Hebrew name is Yusel Simcha, meaning Jonathan The Blessing. I have taken this to heart in everything that I do as I do my best to bring peace, love, joy, and prosperity to all I come in contact with. In all the at bats we have leading up to that final at bat we should be able to say I did my best and I finished strong. Each time we think we struck out we must take a breath and internalize what we learned so the next time we can hit that single, double, triple, or home run. We have the chance each time that we step to the plate of life to swing for the fences and make a positive impact in the world. Ask yourself how you want your final at bat to be and then do all you can to manifest that outcome. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: What Are You Waiting For?
Today’s entry was inspired by Nickelback’s song what are you waiting for? In the spiritual awakening process it is important to become an action taker and do things with a sense of purpose and passion. I have learned over the years that you either find a way or you find an excuse. It is said that the wealthiest people are found in a cemetery as their ideas and dreams died with them because they kept waiting or they listened to the naysayers. So many times people do not embrace their spiritual gifts and GOD Given Talents that it becomes to late because as they sit on their death bed recounting what could have been, what might have been, or what they should have been their time runs out. To avoid any regrets in your final days take action on your idea implement it and see what happens. Sometimes you just have to take it to the streets.
A few years ago I had an idea to run POINTS FOR THE CURE FOOTBALL EDITION and I was doing it every week with not so much success so this year I tweaked the idea and I am now taking it to the streets to be run from 10/22-28/2014 where people will choose their favorite College or Professional Football Team and after they play will visit http://main.acsevents.org/goto/jdogg2 and donate $.25 (25 cents) per point that their team scored. I have been utilizing a 3 foot rule where I share this information. Many people have been receptive and think it is a great idea as it combines something they like watching with helping a good cause. The key is to come up with the idea then implement it and make changes so it evolves. I have learned that in all you do you must take action and take it to the streets. Let people hear your message and build their trust as people want to engage with people they know, like, and trust. Ask yourself why am I hesitating, what am I waiting for then take action and start. Sometimes it is turning to GOD ans seeking to have a fire started in you. Read More→
