Spiritual Awakening:Make Noise Live Out Loud!!!


 In experiencing a spiritual awakening we find ourselves more determined to make some noise and live out loud. It is said that the squeakiest wheel gets the grease. I encourage you to be that squeaky wheel and make some noise by living life big. As I was at my doctor’s office today (9/10/14) they were going to draw some blood for a blood test to check some levels for a new  medicine I am on well things didn’t go as planned as I got light headed and dizzy and knew exactly what needed to be done. I got up after they withdrew the needle and went into an exam room and laid down. I was given water and they placed a cold towel on my forehead and allowed me to just lie down. I laid down and closed my eyes and the white light that I have come accustomed to seeing during meditation passed over me and through my body vibrating life and giving me a message JDOGG you need to let this pass and go continue to live big. As I left the doctor’s office I began to think what ways can I live life big and inspire others? The answer was do a blog entry that will encourage everyone to go out and make a difference in the lives of others.  By helping others to live big your personal and professional life will be enhanced.  As I arrived at Starbuck’s I decided to make some noise and live out loud as I allowed people to go ahead of me and shared my smile as much as I could. I remembered that today was the day that the lord hath made so I will be glad and rejoice in it.

This is the day the Lord has made...In embracing this Psalm I have been able to declare that today will be a great day regardless of any obstacles that may come my way. I have declared that today I will make noise and live out loud so as to to show others that they are divine children of GOD and despite any trials or tribulations that they are facing they can work through them and there will be bigger and better things coming to them.  It is is living out loud that we are able to inspire others thus finding inspiration to carry on with our mission furthering our purpose. In finding your purpose and living out loud you will attract the people into your life who will propel you in your endeavors allowing you step into your power and unleashing your greatness.

Spiritual Awakening: Oh It’s So Big!!!


 As part of the spiritual awakening process we learn that the universe is big. It contains so much energy that when we first contemplate its magnitude we may become overwhelmed. It is at that moment at time that we must step back and examine the actions that we are taking so as to better enhance our spiritual journey. Exploring the universe is much like eating a large meal as you look at the portion that is being offered to you you think oh it’s so big how am I going to eat this then you realize you cane at it and enjoy it one bite at a time.  As you examine the universe and begin to understand how to harness the energy it contains and use it for the greater good you begin to create a oneness consciousness that will assist you in your personal and professional endeavors.  You will find yourself guided to ascended masters who will hold the answers to the questions you ask. You will begin to discover that there are many people who are being placed in your path to guide you to a positive  outcome along your spiritual path. As you continue along your spiritual path you may find forks in the path and you will be guided to take the best path for you.  You may stand at that crossroad and think oh this is a big decision. At that moment it is important to stop, breathe, and ask GOD and the ascended masters to guide you in the right direction. In some cases the message may be to stop turn around and come back to this decision on another day. Sometimes taking a time out and seeking guidance is the best way to allow the spirituality that we posses to become one with the universe.

The Message : why I ran for County Council, my committment, how I ...How many times have you received a message and thought oh it’s so big how can I do that and not gone forward with the message from GOD and The Universal Powers we call Ascended Masters.  I have stated many times before that if GOD brings you to it he will bring your through it. I have seen this so many times along my spiritual path. Recently I was given the news that my radio show, Get Motivated With Jonathan JDOGG Lederman, which airs on www.blogtalkradio.com/hrafnstongradio will be going off  the air and my last show will be on 9/29/2014.  At first I was disappointed but then I realized that GOD has more plans for me. My first reaction tot he decision was oh it’s so big then I took a breathe and realized GOD has bigger plans for me and wants to provide opportunities where I will prosper. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: What Are You Looking At?


Many times during my spiritual awakening process I have been asked this question as I tend to look at people and smile. It is part of my outgoing personality and many times people do not know how to react to a stranger smiling at them. Instead of being cordial and saying hello they will become aggressive and I answer I was looking at you and sending positive energy to you.  Most times this combats the initial negative energy that this question conjures up. Sometimes in taking action and stepping into our power we will encounter those who have not accepted the idea of being on a spiritual journey and thus don’t get it. Many people feel they are being judged or don’t realize that what they are wearing might peak the interest of others.

2012 NBPA Top 100 Camp Preview: Who Could ShineToday(9/3/2014) while at Starbucks working on this blog entry I walked by a gentleman who had this logo on his shirt I went to look closer and I explained I was reading the logo on his shirt as I do PA Announcing for The South Florida Gold. I gave him my business card and asked him what brought him to Starbucks. he answered and I told him about my TV Show, The Anything Bucket, which airs on www.wrpbitv.com on Tuesday at 6:30 PM EDT. He thought that was nice.  I also met a woman who had a sticker A Pirates Life for Me on her laptop and I asked her about it and she took my business card and really liked my moniker,JDOGG. I told her about my TV Show. By looking around and being aware we find opportunities to be of service and value. We never know who we may be meeting or talking with so it is important to keep looking.

Always look on the bright side of life:In looking at the bright side of life and being grateful for another day we set in motion the elements that are necessary to improve our personal and professional life while enhancing the personal and professional life of others. In our quest to develop more spiritually and personally we must look at all things as they happen as happening for us and thus we look for the reasons and gain understanding so that we can move forward in the positive direction of our dreams.  If you are a regular reader of this blog you know that in June of 2014 I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. At first I was upset then I stepped back took a breathe and meditated on the concept that this was a message from GOD to improve on my food choices and on my activities. As I changed from the idea of this sucks to this is really a blessing as it will allow me to make better choices on where I focus my attention and how I eat. As a result my health has improved.  In changing the way I looked at the situation the situation changed since that day I have turned more and more to spiritual teachings. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: A Labor Of Love!!!

... me what Labor Day, so what is it? And why do Americans celebrate itAs today marks Labor Day and many are celebrating with picnics and barbecues I began to think how great it would be to have every one reading this blog entry would do a labor of love and share their spiritual awakening and how since the awakening their life has changed. I encourage everyone to be an action taker and do a labor of love today. It can be anything from writing a check to The American Cancer Society and sending it to 9141 Sunrise Lakes Boulevard #102, Sunrise, FL 33322 to buying supplies for a local animal shelter to collecting pull tabs and giving them to Ronald McDonald House or simple helping the next person in line buy buying them an iced tea.  One of the anthems that I have adopted during my spiritual awakening process is the concept of being of service and value.In committing to be of service and value and doing things in a loving and caring manner I have found that my personal and professional life has improved.  In understanding that we are all called to do a labor of love we expand our own circle of love and thus we create a more loving, caring, and kinder world. In doing these labors of love we become the change we want to see in the world. We begin to come alive as we serve our community and interact with the people we come in contact with. In doing these labors of love we detach from the outcome and just let things play out thus becoming more spiritually awakened. It is the spiritual awakening process that we become more in tune with our divinity and thus are able to put positive energy into all of our labors of love and thus not only enhance our personal and professional lives but also to improve the lives of those we come in contact with.

Mary gave us a labor of love when she delivered Jesus into our world. Jesus would commit many labors of love the greatest of which was dying on the cross  to take away our sins and redeem us. In redemption Jesus gave us the responsibility of living a life of righteousness by doing labors of love. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: The Power of The Platforms!!!


Home » Leopard print platform shoes - RedWhen one thinks of platforms they often go to the idea of ladies shoes instead of the concept of platforms to communicate their message. There is a power in both. have you ever watched a man and his reaction to a woman in platform shoes? This power can also be used to spread your message by looking at what platforms you have to use to express your message. I have found that most women who wear platform shoes exude a confidence and deliver their message quite effectively. As I discovered this fact through my spiritual awakening I thought what If I could figuratively model the behavior of those confident women and find ways to use the power of my platforms?  As I sat in meditation and sought the answer to the question of how to use the power of my platforms to empower and inspire others the answer came to me. The answer was to just go with your heart and let everything else flow as it is intended to.  Over the last few months I have learned that we all have a voice and a power to utilize it for the betterment  of our world. I have learned that one of the best ways use the power of the platforms is to understand that we are powerful beyond measure and the only thing that can hold us back is our self. So many times we do not step into our power because we do not know just how powerful our voice can be. many times we do not take actions because we are afraid that someone might say no or not share the same enthusiasm we have for our passion.

Starbucks-Logo-Wallpaper-starbucks-3208054-1440-900Today I am at my local Starbucks writing this blog entry and I overheard two people speaking about art and music  and the development of their websites. I immediately walked over and introduced myself and gave them my business card. I have a great platform with www.wrpbitv.com as I host a TV Show, The Anything Bucket, which airs on www.wrpbitv.com on Tuesday at 6:30 PM EDT. The Anything Bucket is reaching over 50,000 viewers in 145 countries every week. This is a powerful platform as people can come on The Anything Bucket share their message, but the clip of their appearance, and utilize that clip in all of their marketing.  The greatest platform you have is getting out in public and sharing who you are and what you do with others as you never know who you may meet and how each of you can be of service and value to one another.  Part of the spiritual awakening process entails reaching out to others so as to enhance their personal and professional lives. It is through helping others that we help ourselves. Sometimes all it takes is the courage to say hello  to a stranger and watch what unfolds. Remember you have something to offer others and when you shine your light the entire world is illuminated. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Finding The Silver Lining!!!

The silver lining of the dark cloud of a funeral trip included:In being an action taker during the spiritual awakening process I have learned to seek the positive message in all I do. Today (8/29/2014) I was stoked to be part of The How To Sell Your Genius Tap Into You Seminar as a presenter. I had prepared and was ready to rock the house. I left my home and headed out to Broward College. As I drove I must have run into 5 school zones. Instead of getting angry I looked to the heavens and thanked GOD for watching over me and giving me more time to prepare and keeping me safe. As I arrived at the parking garage I dropped my banned in a puddle. In the past this would have angered me now due to understanding that everything happens for a reason I picked up the banner wiped it off and walked over to the building where I would be presenting. Upon asking the security guard for the room we were in I asked for a parking pass and was given one. I went to the 12th floor and I found the room where I would be presenting I dropped off my stuff and went to get a glass of water and off to my left there it was a beautiful display of stones and crystals. I took my water and took a breathe and allowed the power of GOD and the energy of the stones and crystals to envelop me and I went to get the rest of thing I needed for my presentation. I arrived at my car and I was sweating and then one of the tab collars on my short broke. I again took a deep breathe retrieved everything I needed and made my way back to the building.  I sat quietly in the room and then went and got refreshed. As I was cleaning up my top button broke. I put my hands in the prayer position and asked GOD, “What is The Message?” The answer I received is regardless of what happens you have a positive and informative message to deliver and all the stuff you were shown today is given to you to teach you to appreciate your gift and to use it for the betterment of others. It was at that moment that I realized that the silver lining was that my message would be heard regardless of the broken buttons, a wet banner(that by now was dry), a trying trip, and any other obstacles that came my way.

Spiritual Awakening: Getting Up Or Going Down?

 In our spiritual awakening we often face the question of are we getting up or are we going down. As we continue to evolve and delve further and further into our divinity discovering our purpose we will run into those who see us getting up and they will want to bring us down. What do you you do when you encounter the naysayers or  the promulgators of negativity? I generally tell them thank you to bad, so sad, don’t let the door hit you where GOD split you. In taking action and deciding to move forward in a positive direction toward our goals and dreams we begin to find it easier and easier to detach from people, places, and things that no longer serve us. The anthem of staying positive allows me to continue to move up and at times when I feel like I am going down I say GOD if I get knocked down please allow me to land on my back for if I can look up I can get up. I have learned through out the spiritual awakening process that life will knock you down at times however I have been able to get up by remembering that of GOD brought me to it GOD will bring me through it. As GOD brings you through things and leads you with the plans he has made for you one understands that the hall of fame is waiting for us.

In the spiritual awakening process one will begin to see that they are getting up and in getting up will become inducted into their own hall of fame. In my home I have my personal wall of fame where I am the first picture and then I have photos of those people who I draw inspiration from like Irene Cara, who I had the privilege of meeting and interviewing.

IRENE CARAThis photo is the one that hangs on my wall of fame reminding me that if you are getting up you are moving forward in the positive direction of your dreams. I have come to understand that one must answer the question are you getting up or going down?  In the spiritual journey I have encountered many people who are award winners and who have come alive thus inspiring others to shine their light and illuminate the world. We all have the opportunity to achieve FAME in our own right. This fame may come in the form of accolades for being of service and value to the community, recognition from our peers fro outstanding work, awards from organizations and leaders who we have contributed to the betterment of their personal and professional lives. It may come from the opportunity of simply being out in the community and sharing your message with others.

 As one awakens and gets in tune with their divinity and finding their purpose they do things that are positive and memorable that add value to those they come in contact with. The gifts you have to share are inside of you and need to be let out. In deciding to get up instead of going down you put in motion the mechanics necessary to make a mind, body, soul connection and to excel in your personal and professional life.

Spiritual Awakening: Tools To Help You Get U!!!

Her book will serve as a great tool to help you get up.

Spiritual Awakening: Fine Tuning Your Authentic Self!!!



wittner tuning fork - square prongs a-440This is a tuning fork used to help musicians find the perfect pitch. As I was updating my YouTube Channel, www.youtube.com/jdogglederman,  I thought how  we all could use a tuning fork to fine tune our authentic self.  I began to ask and explore the question at how many times are we attempting to be something we are not because we are worried about what others might think? I began to reflect and realized that when I was fearful of what others might think I held myself back and didn’t move forward. As a result I may have stymied my personal and professional growth. Then one day I realized that I had to be true to myself and GOD and along my path and throughout the spiritual awakening process I would have to become an action taker and use that tuning fork to find my perfect pitch.

Tune Up Utilities 2011, nueva versión de la herramienta más popular ...what is tunein radio tunein radio is an app for listening to the radio ... As we use the tuning fork to find that perfect pitch and to become more in tune with our divinity we must clean out the baggage that we are now tuned into so to make room for the better things GOD has planned for us. It is imperative to de-clutter ourselves and remover that which no longer serves us. Wouldn’t it be great if we a check soul light that would mimic the check engine light in our car and thus we would be able to take action and do a spiritual tune up so as to fine tune our authentic self. What would our spiritual tuning fork and spiritual check soul light  tell us? Maybe it would say:
