Spiritual Awakening: Be An Agent Of Change!!!
As I look at all the events unfolding around the world I think what can I do to become an agent of change and how can I become more and more spiritually awake? The answer came as to become an agent of change. It is time to tap into the inner divinity that lies in all of us and connect with others by being loving and caring in all we do and taking action and not allowing naysayers and negative self talk to get in the way.
If you are to change the world you first need to change yourself. You must be willing to go to the ends that no one else is willing to go. You must be willing to step into your power and through all your fears away. You must be willing to loose those who you thought were friends and overcome all the doubters.
In becoming an agent of change you must be true to yourself and be authentic understand that you are a divine child of GOD with a purpose. It is when you commit to becoming an agent of change that you will start to take actions to answer your calling and realize personal, professional, and spiritual growth. You will begin to find opportunities that you never though existed as you begin to take action to move in a positive direction of your dreams. It is when you truly believe that you can make a difference and you work at using your talents to make positive changes that your life and the lives of of others improves. Ask yourself what will I do today to become an agent of change for me and others? Ask yourself how you will show others that service to humanity is the best work of life. Start to believe in yourself and invest in yourself and you will become an agent of change. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Kiss Today Goodbye!!!
One of my favorite Broadway Shows is a Chorus Line as it has so many spiritual lessons such as the lesson in this song about letting go and doing things for love. At the end of each day of you laughed a little, cried a little, and reflected a little you have had a good day. As you kiss today goodbye at the end of each day ask yourself did I live my life in joy today and did my life bring joy to others today? If you can say yes to these two questions you had an excellent day. When you kiss today goodbye you can become a singular sensation by shining your light and illuminating the world. It all starts by taking action and setting a positive tone for the day so that when you kiss the day goodbye you are filled with peace, love, joy, and prosperity.
As you kiss the day goodbye also ask yourself how you stood out among others? Where was I of value and service? As you reflect on the day look at all the good that came into your life and knock out any negativity. As you awaken and become more and more aware you will see that you truly are a singular sensation who makes everyday count. As you go day by day and take full advantage of the opportunities to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually you will see your life being filled with more bliss and abundance. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Rise Up!!!
Through the spiritual awakening process you will encounter much good and much evil as it is all part of the universal balancing act that occurs each day. What you focus on will expand thus I recommend that you rise up and promote peace, love, joy, and prosperity. Today I smiled at a group of people as I walked into Starbucks and they asked why I was smiling and I told them about a philosophy I heard from Les Brown, where he stated I woke up without a white chalk line around my body so I knew it was going to be a day. As I the group asked me about the fliers I had, which were for Sinbad Sports, a store I work for in Davie, FL. the took the fliers and we continued our dialogue and at the end wished each other a good day and said GOD Bless You. As I continued to interact with people I made it a point to say GOD Bless You. I have come to understand that part of rising up in spirit starts with the foundation in a belief that faith in GOD gives meaning and purpose to human life. In making a commitment to rise up and tale action you will set in motion events that at times seem challenging however understanding that if GOD brought you to it GOD will bring you through it will allow you to enhance your personal, professional, and spiritual life while being of service and value to others. Rising up and standing for a cause can be done without anger as love conquers all and when you are loving and caring in all you do you create a vibration which vibrates at a high frequency that positivism radiates from you to others. In radiating positivism you will create positive shift in your life and in the lives of others.
Spiritual Awakening: Tools To Help You Rise Up!!!
In becoming cheerful giver you will see that you will receive great rewards and find that this is a great tool to moving forward in a positive direction of your dreams.
Music is an excellent tool to remind us just how powerful we can be as it assists us in tapping into our inner divinity so that our rising up will empower and inspire others to rise up. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: The Love Boat!!!
As I watched the news, which I rarely do these days as it is fretted with negativity I thought the solution to the world’s problems are simple as it all boils down to getting everyone on board The Love Boat and seeing that we are more alike then we are different. It is a matter of becoming an action taker and making love and kindness part of your daily routine. It doesn’t cost any money to be kind and helpful to one another. If we stop for a moment and stop playing the blame game and commit to being loving and kind in all we do our world will become a giant love boat. It is through the spiritual awakening process that we grow and begin to understand that we are all divine children of GOD capable of much love. I have come to live by a principle first taught by Mother Teresa which says if you can not do great things do small things with great love. In doing so you will find that you start and continue to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. It is when we make love one of our core foundations and adopt love songs as anthems that we can all board the love boat and reach the heights that GOD has in store for us. In showing love and doing something as simple as smiling at someone you will create a ripple effect that spreads kindness and increases the flow of positivism thus enriching people’s lives. I have come to understand that when we board the love boat we must also carry with us and implement The Four Agreements as taught by Don Miguel Ruiz.
In practicing and teaching others these agreements we can begin to come alive and change our world. When we are committed to making a positive difference in the world we can bring people together and a s a result our communities become stronger. If we start to realize that the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations and understand that we are all our brothers keeper we will see a positive change in our world that drives out the negativity and as a result our world becomes a better place one person at a time. Many say it is impossible to bring people together because of all the hate that has been festering for years. I say what about all the love that has been given over the years. What if instead of watching the news and all the so called reality shows you turned off the TV and went out and interacted with people and showed interest in them and did what you could to help them. Think of how great this would make others feel and how great you would feel knowing that instead of complaining and pointing fingers you were a lifter and as a result your personal, professional, and spiritual life was improved.

Spiritual Awakening: Changing The Lock!!!
As I completed a meeting earlier today (6/29/2016) I had what could be considered another spiritual awakening as I realized that sometime you have to give something up to gain so much more. I was very attached to collecting donations at a special event as was told that the organizers didn’t want me to do this but that I could collect at other events that they sponsored. I had this big mental lock as I couldn’t understand why the city would say no to this but after a great discussion I changed that mental lock from resistance to acceptance and began to see the big picture. At the same time I was told that HOOTERS and Twin Peaks could not be endorsed by the 501-c-3 organization that I was working but that I could do an independent fundraiser as long as I didn’t promote it as this organizations event. I again was upset as I believe in engaging all those that want to help. I again changed a lock and opened up to where the organization was coming from and decided to simply go with the flow and follow their protocols. I will still be doing a fundraiser with Hooters in October and will be donating the money to the organization. I learned that sometimes you just have to do things the way others in perceived power want you to and follow their protocols.
It is when we change our mindset and stop thinking that our way is the best way that we can change our mental locks and grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. I have come to learn through all the spiritual awakenings that we must change our attitudes and latitudes so as to gain a better perspective on how we can live a life of purpose. In many cases you must be willing to change and accept that which you can not change and do the best you can with the tools you have. In changing the locks you remove blockages that may hold you back from becoming a powerful being capable of doing amazing things. Over the years I have come to understand that the way things are and they way things should be are 2 different things. In understanding this I continue to change the mental locks and change the way I do things. As I continue to expand my understanding and detaching from outcomes I continue to rise to a new level of spiritual and personal development. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Host Or Hostage?
This is a guest post by Diane C. Parker

Host or Hostage
Here we are, right in the thick of it again….campaign season (silly season as some may affectionately call it). It’s easy to get caught up in the “OMG, what will we do if so and so wins?” of it all. Not so long ago, I fell right down into that deep rabbit hole. After years of activism, standing up for worker’s rights and a full on diet of 24-hour news broadcasts, I decided what I had been doing to change the world wasn’t working. I decided to do something different. I decided to change.
Each and every day, we have a multitude of choices. As we progress into “adulthood”, we learn how to behave, how to fit in society and how to fear nearly everything we haven’t seen adnauseam. The latter is where the powers that be get us every time. Choices become distant memories.
Fear-mongering is the go-to weapon for crushing an uprising of free-will in the United States. Fear is the bogeyman used with abandon to control the masses. It is wielded with such precision, in the news, in social media and even in parroted conversations that most American adults have become its hostage. We, seemingly powerless to all that “may go wrong,” have lost our ability to hope and to dream. There is nothing more dangerous for a person, a family, a community or a nation.
There is an alternative to the Stockholm Syndrome we are collectively exhibiting. It involves nothing more than remembering.
We, at our inception, are the by-product of 1000’s of bursting stars. At birth, arriving at a confluence of confounding, astounding parameters that support life on this planet, we are a host to a divine spirit that knows only an infinite number of possibilities for the future. Around the age of seven, we begin to forget our limitless potential. Bit by bit, the magic is taken from us. We are willing victims, albeit not initially, of this heinous crime. Before long, doom, gloom, muck and mud are all that we imagine. We fall victim to our past and our fear of the future. We forget to enjoy the day.
What if we just stopped? What if we decided that worry and fear were worthless wastes of time and energy? What if we gave them up? What if we imagined what all could go right?
Fear is a remnant of our reptilian brains, designed to kick our “fight or flight” defense mechanisms in gear when necessary. If that is all we allowed it to do, there would be no stress, anxiety or the myriad of ailments they cause. There is not another creature on God’s green earth that ruminates and marinates in fears (real or imagined) once the cause of the fear no longer threatens. We humans, in contract, turn our fears into years’ worth of worry.
All of us can imagine at least one time we were joyfully ecstatic. Let’s bask in that! Let’s relish in the sunshine, happy baby faces, smiles from strangers, walking barefoot and dancing under the moonlight. Let’s collectively notice each and every blessing the day affords us and give thanks as if we won the lottery. Let’s go out of our way to help a stranger. Let’s smile and laugh and play without regard to who may be watching. Let’s imagine a future where we “choose” to be a better person, a better better-half, a better parent, a better citizen living in a better nation. Let’s imagine that every gift at our disposal every day the sun comes up can be put to use to serve ourselves and the whole of humanity. Let’s stop allowing ourselves to be taken hostage and be a better host to the source that lives within and binds us all. I can guarantee, if you do these things, the blessings will flow like the mighty Mississippi! This, I know from experience.
And yes, I’m still voting this Fall! A wonderful outcome can result just as I’ve imagined.
Spiritual Awakening: Live Like A Warrior!!!
As you awaken spiritually you begin to see that living life as a spiritual warrior is what your were meant to do so as to shine a light that will illuminate the world. In becoming a peaceful warrior whose actions are filled with love and compassion you grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. In understanding the idea that you must stand for something or you will fall for anything you begin to strengthen your ability to make a mind, body, soul connection. In taking action to be a spiritual warrior you set things in motion that will attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. In becoming a spiritual warrior and living like a warrior you start to see that the outcomes you are getting in life are related to the energy you are bringing to the tasks you are performing.
Mother Teresa once said if you can not do great things do small things with great love. Mother Teresa was a spiritual warrior who impacted many lives and taught us many lessons of love and compassion. Mother Teresa taught us that each day we can start over and light a fire that will burn bright to light a path for others to walk so that peace, love, and understanding become the way of the day. It is important that we light the flames of hope of healing and keep them burning by becoming peaceful spiritual warriors who share peace, love, joy, and prosperity with others. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Break All The Chains!!!
As you undergo your spiritual awakening you will experience many obstacles in the form of mental chains that have been holding you back from manifesting the life that you desire. Mush of your challenge can be faced by simple breaking the mental chains that are stopping you from thriving by making a connection to a higher power, whatever you call that power be it GOD, Jesus, Source, Allyah, Spirit, or another name remember it is your connection that creates a oneness consciousness that then allows you to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. When you are disconnected you create the mental chains of anguish that stop you from living a life of purpose that has been predetermined by a higher power. As you begin to break all the chains and praise GOD for all the goodness that GOD has provided you will find yourself creating many opportunities where you will flourish. Many times we keep ourselves mentally chained because we do not see that we are divine children of GOD destined to be great and thus we stay stuck. Well now is the time to break all the chains and go from stuck to unstoppable. Stop listening to doubters, haters, naysayers and instead begin to list to the divine messages that are being delivered and take appropriate action. If you have found that you are doing your best to fit in and it isn’t working remember that you were not put on this earth to fit in you were put on this earth to stand out and to thrive while being of service and value to others. It is time you eliminate the people and things that are creating mental chains and stopping you from living the life you desire. You have 2 choices you can face everything and rise or you can forget everything and run. I have found it is when you face down a challenge and realize that if GOD brought you to it GOD will bring you through it. It is when you let go and let GOD that you will break the chains of mental bondage and begin to make the mind, body, and soul connection that will lead to personal, professional, and spiritual growth.
It is when we have the desire to break free and take action to leave behind the people and things and sometimes the places that are holding us back that we begin to tap into our inner divinity and as a result we remove the mental chains that in the past and up until now have held us back from creating a life filled with bliss and abundance. Over the years I have found that by detaching from circumstances and allowing things to flow as GOD has intended that my journey is filled with calmness and happiness. When we free ourselves from our stinking thinking and our negative self talk we realize that we are powerful beings that none but ourselves can stop. It is when we stand in our power directed by GOD that we become stronger and are able to better serve our community. In breaking away from our own mental chains we help others to break free from their mental chains and as a result we create a world where peace, love, and understanding become the way.
When we make the divine connection and break our mental chains we begin to see that we are free to live the life that GOD has planned for us. So many times we find ourselves listening to others and worrying about what people will think or say about us that we stay slaves mentally chained to limiting beliefs that we never take action and thus we find ourselves living with regret and resentment. Do not allow people to tell you you can not do something because you are capable beyond measure to achieve great things. Now is the time to break your mental chains and to experience the freedom to be divinely guided on your spiritual path and to see where your path will lead by simply believing in a higher power and allowing that higher power to direct you.

Spiritual Awakening:The Spiritual Highway!!!
When you decide to take action after your spiritual awakening you will see that you will embark on a journey that will have you driving on a spiritual highway. Along the high way there will be many exits to get off and many on ramps to get you back on the highway. Each and every exit and on ramp will bring you opportunities to gain knowledge and understanding of your spiritual purpose while here on Earth having a human experience. When you decide to take an exit make sure you stop and truly receive the message that took you off the main highway. As you get off the main highway and you begin to explore the area where you exited keep in mind what question you were seeking an answer to and the answer will be revealed. Your exit from the highway may be short or long depending on how long it takes you to gain understanding and to take action on the answer that you received. Each time we get onto the spiritual highway we are better prepared to navigate the road that lies ahead. ON our trip on the spiritual highway there will be obstacles that slow us down or even prevent us from moving forward in our quest toward making a mind, body, soul connection. When these obstacles enter into our human life we must understand that they are signs from GOD being delivered to us so that we can create the life we desire with GOD’S guidance.
When we get off the highway we will begin to explore and have decisions to make and many times we must take the road less traveled by as going against the norm makes a world of difference. In taking the road less traveled by we find ourselves back on the spiritual highway more enlightened and better prepared to answer our calling. Along the spiritual highway we will have opportunities to come alive by being of service and value to the communities that lie along the highway simply by detaching from our desired outcome and simply flowing with the messages that are being delivered form GOD. I remember a time I was in The Philippines serving as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer and the road took me a path that would take me to The Botanical Gardens in San Fernando. Along my path I would encounter many people who found it odd that I would be walking the 5 KM (3.1 miles) to the botanical gardens. Each person I came in contact with gave me a valuable lesson as I walked what became a very spiritual walk filled with much peace and further understanding as to why I became a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer. When I arrive at the top of what I could only describe as a mountain I was parched and my legs were weary. I came across what I would call a concessions stand and I was able to purchase water and continue on my exploration of the botanical gardens. I would take many photos unfortunately as I went to The ATM machine later in the day I forgot my camera and when I went back it was gone so I only have the memories of the vivid sites and the tranquil moments of the botanical gardens and the lessons that came to me that day through the messages from GOD, The Ascended Masters, and my angels. As I sat in reflection that night I realized that along the spiritual highway we will find lessons that help us to evolve personally, professionally, and spiritually.
It was at that moment that I knew my calling was far bigger than I had originally thought and that my mission is to shine GOD’S Light that is inside of me to help plant the seeds of hope and healing. As I completed my sixth month of Peace Corps Service and came home I realized what I received was far greater than anything I could ever give. I realized that this exit off the spiritual highway carried many lessons where I strengthened my belief that the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations and that service to humanity is the best work of life. As I arrived home I began to think how can I apply what I learned in The Philippines to make my community a better place. It is now 13 years that I have been back in The United States and I have been on and off the spiritual highway and each exit has brought me lessons of attracting peace, love, joy, and prosperity into my life. Each stop along the way has provided insight into why I am here and what my purpose is while here on Earth. I have learned that it is my mission to help others by being my authentic self and striving to be my best self as directed by GOD.

Spiritual Awakening: Grooving On A Sunday Afternoon!!!
As I sat down at Starbucks to write this entry I took a quick look around and it was amazing to see all the people simply grooving on a Sunday Afternoon. There was a group playing Rummy O, a guy working on editing his photography, people reading, and others simply enjoying life. As I absorbed all this great positive energy I began to think how important it is to be spiritually awake and in tube with your inner divinity so as to attract much peace, joy, love, and prosperity into your life. I began to realize that if you want to manifest happiness and abundance into your life you must exude happiness and come from a place of abundance. So many times we get caught up in the things we can not control that we forget to take charge of what we can control and thus we create blockages that get in the way of grooving not only on a Sunday afternoon but everyday. Now the question is how are we going to awaken spiritually and take control of our lives and let GOD be our guide. The answer is to first embrace the fact that you are a divine child of GOD destined for greatness. After that it is important to make a commitment to yourself to take care of yourself so that you can be of service and value to others. Then after you begin to be of service and value start to release that which no longer serves you. As you continue to follow your path guided by GOD you will see that when you are connected to GOD you will see great things unfold so make it a priority to praise and honor GOD daily so that you can grove everyday and reach your higher calling.
Spiritual Awakening: Tools To Help You Groove Everyday!!!
I have found that The Serenity Prayer, Positive Affirmations, and The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz to be excellent tools in assuming an attitude that will allow me to be open to grooving daily.
I have learned that music can be a great way to get into the groove and to vibrate on a higher level that attracts people to you so that you can manifest the life that you desire.
Over the years I have discovered that books such as these and others available by following the Hay House Link on this page are excellent tools to help you get into the groove.
Kindness is a trait that when put into action serves as great tool to groove daily.
Giving praise and glory to GOD is a fantastic tool to help keep you centered, focused, and grounded so that you can groove everyday and live life to the fullest.
Essential oils and incense are excellent tools to use while clearing your mind so as to groove daily.
Meditation has served as an exceptional tool in releasing that which may be stopping you from grooving daily.
Take a moment to walk in nature and create a sacred space where you can go to communicate with GOD, The Ascended Masters, and The Angels so as to receive the guidance that will allow you to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually as you continue to make the mind, body, and soul connection.
Find spiritual places like The Rice Terraces in the Philippines and take a trip without all the accouterments that we have grown accustom to and simply take in the messages as you get connected to source. Sometimes the greatest tool we have is our ability to detach and disconnect from the human life that we have come to know and get in touch with our divinity.
When I find it difficult to get into a groove or I find myself stuck I use the tool of reflection to remind me just how good my life has been and I remember times that brought great joy and a sense of accomplishment into my life like the 6 months from July 2002 – February 2003 when I was a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in Buang La Union, Philippines. I look at the photo of the church and the arch and I realize how many lives I touched and how the people in this community changed my life and it gets me into a positive frame of mind knowing that I am capable of great things and if I can not do great things to do small things with great love. It is said that photographs and memories are great tools to help you get into the groove.
