Spiritual Awakening: Give It All You Got!!!
As you awaken spiritually you begin to realize that it is important to give it all you got in all endeavors that you take on. It is said that when you give it you all that you are rewarded 10 fold. I have seen this at work when a few years ago a friend came to me and asked for support of their efforts to help people with Leukemia and Lymphoma as they were doing Team in Training. I was able to donate $18. About a week later i was setting up appoints for advertising executives at The Happy Herald and I sent them out on the appoints and they were successful is closing some deals. As a result my commission from those sales was $180. As I remembered the bible verse that GOD loves a Cheerful Giver I found myself giving more and more and as a result I was receiving great rewards be it free food, higher commission checks, paid announcing gigs, or paid marketing and business consultations. In being committed to giving it all that I got I was manifesting outstanding outcomes into my life. I have come to learn that the energy you bring to an endeavor determines the outcome. In giving it all you got you can rest your head and sleep well at the end of the day knowing that you sucked every last bit of marrow out of life by being of service and value to others. In giving it all you got and living a life filled with passion and purpose you will see that no one can stop you but yourself.
When you decide to give it all you got and realize that there is no one but yourself that can stop you setting and exceeding goals gets easier. In giving it all you got and detaching from outcomes you will see that you are moving positively in the direction of your dreams. I suggest you adopt an attitude of gratitude as you give it all you got so that you can create the life you want. In anything that you do while experiencing a spiritual awakening you must give it all you got as you answer your calling and stay positive in all that you do. As you answer your calling you will also see that changes need to be made so that you manifest what you desire by coming alive and serving the community. Many times it is making a small adjustment to your attitude or to the vibration you are giving off. If you aren’t getting the results you desire look inside and tap into your inner divinity seeking alternative methodologies and make changes required to bring peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. Sometimes it is as simple as looking at the man in the mirror. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Times They Are A Changing!
As you experience a spiritual awakening you will start to experience changes in your perspective that allows you to vibrate at a higher level thus positively impacting your personal, professional, and spiritual awakening. When you awake in the morning with the attitude that you can be a world changer and then you take action you will see that you can become a world changer. It is said that one snowflake has little impact but get a bunch of them together and watch what happens. Everyday things are changing at a rapid pace and may believe that these are the end days. If they are the end day my suggestion is to become as righteous in the ways you carry yourself by being impeccable with your world, not taking anything personally, not making any judgments, and always doing your best. The times are definitely changing and as a spiritual being it is your responsibility to change with the times and to be driven by your inner divinity. As the times change remember it is not about being right or wrong it is about doing the right thing. As you become more and more aware and awake you will begin to attract abundance into your life that allows you to live a life filled with much peace, love, joy, and prosperity. It is when you begin to adapt and overcome by not compromising your spirituality that you will enhance your personal, professional, and spiritual life.
As the times are changing we must come together as spiritual beings and stand up to injustice. It is when we show others that the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations that we can look beyond political ideologies and start to come together as one. It is when we realize that we are all divine children of GOD with a purpose to be of service and value to one another that we make improvements in our world. It is when we begin to dialogue with one another without judging that we can come to peaceful resolutions that make our communities stronger. Everyday make it a point to go out and meet someone who you do not know and see how you can be of service and value to that person. In some cases people may not be to receptive as interaction with a perceived stranger can be scary and many people are programmed to become defensive. The key is to remember that it is not your job to bring them kicking and screaming onto a path of change but to shine your light so that when they are ready they will follow you as a beacon of hope and healing. I have always believed that some will, some won’t, so what, some waiting, next. Some people will not see the positive messenger that you are because they are still wrapped in their ego thinking that they know it all when in reality we can all learn from someone. Read More→
In todaySpiritual Awakening: Be The Ruler Of Your Life!!!
As you experience a spiritual awakening and decide to become an action taker you must commit to ruling your life. Instead of trying to rule the world your focus should be on how you can improve your personal, professional, and spiritual life thus allowing you the opportunity to enhance the lives of others. It is up to you to rule your life and follow your heart because what the heart believes and what the mind conceives you can achieve. The truth is that so many times we allow the outside influences of others to dictate our actions or lack of actions that we keep ourselves stagnant. In order to move forward and create the life you want you must stop listening to the outsiders and start listening to yourself so that you can rule your life. In taking command of your life and becoming the ruler of you life you will see that you will attract more peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life and thus you will be able to be of more service and value to others. As we grow we are told by parents, teachers, priests, rabbis, news media, and other sources what to believe and how to conduct ourselves. In listening to these sources we often hold ourselves back from our calling. In holding ourselves back and allowing others to rule us we create blockages that stop us from stepping into our power and achieving greatness. We listen to people tell us you are not good enough or you can’t make a living by doing that, or what can’t you be like everyone else and thus we get stuck sometimes. If you are to get unstuck you must become the ruler of your life.
One of my anthems over the years has been this Billy Joel song, My Life. At the end of the day it is your life and you have the choice to listen to the doubters and the haters or break free and rule your life. It is when you decide to chase your dreams and not to allow others to hold you back that you begin to rule your life thus manifesting what you desire. So many tines people are quick to tell you how you should be living and what you should be doing when they should be worrying about their own lives. When you begin to rule your life and shine your light you begin to illuminate the world. In illuminating the world you can effectively make positive changes that will leave the earth in a better place then you found it. Your taking action to rule your life sends a ripple of positivism that shifts the dynamic of society making improvements that leave a legacy of hope and healing for others. In ruling your life and dedicating yourself to be a lifter you will be lifted. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Spitting Fire!!!
What is lighting your fire and igniting your passion? In each of us we have a fire that once awakened is unstoppable. As long as we are spiritual awake and aware all we need is a small burning ember to live our life on purpose. It is amazing when we can use that fire below for the betterment of ourselves and others. When we discover our purpose and light our fire we are able to move passionately in the direction of our dreams. It is when we begin to spit fire that we are able to shine our light so bright that the entire world is illuminated. The fire and passion that we bring to our daily endeavors determines the outcome of our day.
When we go deep into the ring of fire we are ignited with a deeper understanding so that we can attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity. When we find like minded people who believe that peace, love, and understanding should rule the day we begin to be filled with a burning desire to be of service and value. As a result of having a burning heart and starting our own fir we begin to manifest the life that we desire by simply being filled with a divine fire that allows us to achieve what we once perceived to be impossible. It is when we are so consumed by the fire that we are able to ignite a burning flame that never burns out and inspires others.
Once you have a burning heart it is important to take action and follow your instincts by heeding the messages from above. It is when you answer your calling that you can make changes in your life and in the lives of others. When you put your heart into everything you do the fire inside of you will become an inferno and allow you to deliver a message of hope and healing to the world. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Lift Up Your Voice!!!
It is when we begin to understand that we are all divine children of GOD and that we are more alike than we are different that our personal, professional, and spiritual lives are enhanced. It is when we get back to the basics and leave all the materialistic beliefs at the door that we make our world a better. It is when we commit to changing ourselves by being loving and caring in all that we do that we enhance our life and the lives of those around us. Today we can commit to finding peaceful resolutions to the human issues that are stopping us from achieving spiritual enlightenment. It is through the awakening process that you can answer your calling and become an agent of change.It is by coming alive and standing strong for your community that you can create more peace, love, joy, and prosperity in your life and in the lives of others. Ask yourself how you can be a a persons that unites instead of a person who fights. Ask yourself what you can stand for in a peaceful manner where confrontation is the last resort.
When you wake up and before you you sleep for the evening make sure you give praise to GOD for all that he is providing for you. It is when you lift your voice to GOD and when you become divinely guided that good things begin to happen. Though their may be tough times you can turn things around by praising GOD and standing up for righteousness. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Get Off The Bench!!!
As we experience a spiritual awakening we must commit to become an action taker and get off the bench. There comes a time when we must simply put ourselves in center field and prepare for the world to see our light shining bright. So many times we get so caught up with worry about what will other people think that we keep ourselves on the bench. As a result of sitting on the bench and forgetting everything and running we create blockages that stop us from having the success that GOD has intended for us. It is only when we take action to face everything and rise by committing to getting off the bench that we manifest the live we want as divinely guided by GOD. Through a spiritual awakening we learn that we are talented beyond measure and when we use our talents for good we create a life that id filled with peace, love, joy, and prosperity. Every time we decide to get off the bench and take action we will be greeted with challenges. It is in overcoming these challenges that we grow personally, professionally, and spiritually knowing that if GOD brought us to it GOD will bring us through it. It is when we decide to get off the bench and look at everything in a positive light tat we begin to find more happiness and success in what we do. It is when we decide to get off the bench and play the game by our rules that we create bliss and abundance.
What game will you play to manifest the life that you desire. Will you be an action taker or an excuse maker? Will you go against the norm and play by your own rules not worrying what others think or will you succumb to the pressure of what is perceived as normal and hold yourself back? The choice lies with you and if you choose to tap into your inner divinity and be guided by GOD, The Ascended Masters, and the Angels you will see that the game you play will be one filled with many victories. Each day you have a choice you can sit on the bench wondering what might have been or you can get off the bench and see what will be. Every day you have 86,400 seconds in the day to get off the bench and to take action to answer your calling.
Make this a year where you get off the bench and use your time wisely. It is when you vibrate with love and commit to doing small things with great love that you begin to shine a bright light that illuminates the world. When you get off the bench you put forces in motion to help you move positive in the direction of your dreams. Make your season a season where you are guided by love and compassion and you will see that love and compassion is given back to you. Be one who is genuine in your desire to be of service and value. Seek ways where you will vibrate on a higher level that attracts people and things to you to help you in exceeding your goals and objectives. Get off the bench and be limitless. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Striking A Nerve!!!
When you walk in truth and righteousness sometimes you will strike a nerve with others that may not be as spiritually awakened or as aware as you are. In the ever changing spiritual awakening and growth process you will encounter people who simply do not resonate with your message. It is times when you are taking action that you are bound to strike a nerve. When you strike a nerve the best thing you can do is back off and simply ask GOD to bless the person whose nerve you struck in hopes that they won’t react similarly when the situation arise again. Most of the people I encounter are nice and understanding however there are those who I seem to strike a nerve with as I am passionate about what I do to be a lifter and help others. The truth is that not everyone is ready to be lifted however those that are ready will be presented to you and will be open to receive your message as they become awakened and decide to be on a path to improve their personal, professional, and spiritual life.
When you strike a nerve and someone gets their ire up all you can do is say I am sorry I have seemed to have offended you and simply walk a way because being confrontational is like wrestling a pig in the mud you both get dirty but the pig enjoys it. You may want to help but if the person you are helping is not ready to accept your help then all efforts are futile and it is time to move on. Remember as I have written many times before it is not your job to bring people kicking and screaming onto the path it is your job to shine your light bright and to illuminate the world so that when people are ready to get on the path you can be their guide.

Spiritual Awakening: A Higher Authority!!!
As I sat in reflection today I couldn’t get The Hebrew National Advertisement that states we answer to a higher authority out of my head. As I sat down to write this blog entry the universe once again delivered what I needed to get started to give a message that will help the reader to create a life filled with peace, love, joy, and prosperity as they pointed me to this song by Unspoken called higher. As I listened to the lyrics I began to realize that as we become more and more aware and awake that we must answer to a higher authority understanding that if we are to become successful we must be guide by GOD. If we are to move forward in a positive direction of our dreams we must let go of ego and realize that ego is edging GOD out. When we edge GOD out we become like a disconnected phone that can not make or receive calls and as a result we create blockages that hold us back from becoming the person GOD wants us to be. Until we fix the connection we remain broken and more and more issues arise and as a result our mental and physical well being are at risk. Once we realize that there is a higher authority we can begin to eliminate ego and begin to tap into our inner divinity and be divinely guided to create the life that we desire. It is when we let go and let GOD that we begin to see improvements in our personal, professional, and spiritual life. When we realize that it is not our job to bring people kicking and screaming onto our path but to shine our light bright so that when they are ready to get on the path that they have a starting point our lives change for the better.
The first step to embracing the concept of answering to a higher authority is to eliminate any negative and hateful feelings and create positive and loving feelings. Their will be pain as you let go of the people and things that no longer serve you and begin to follow you heart using your divine guidance system. That pain will subside and joy will begin to permeate your life as you walk with that higher authority and begin to understand that you are a strong vibrant person with purpose. Love will conquer all so do everything with great love and compassion. If you can not do big things do small thins with great love. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: A Funk Soul Brother!!!
As I reviewed my Facebook feed I saw a comment that read wishing you peace and light soul brother Jonathan. It was at that moment that I remembered this song by Fatboy Slim titled Funk Soul Brother. I began to think about what it means to be a Funk Soul Brother it means living in peace and sharing peace, love, joy, and prosperity. It mean being loving and caring in all you do. Being a Funk Soul Brother means standing up to injustice by using peaceful means and serving as an example to others that service to humanity is the best work of life. It means not allowing negativity to permeate your daily life. Being a Funk Soul Brother means walking in your truth by taking action that allows you to shine your light and illuminate the world.
There will be times when being a Funk Soul Brother has its challenges as your human side will want to override your spiritual side. It is at times like this that you must turn inward and be guided by your inner divinity so that you can live by the principles that have lead you to be a beacon of hope and healing for others. It is knowing that you can overcome any adversity that comes your way for if GOD brought you to it GOD will bring you through it. It is when we begin to understand that we are all divine children of GOD and GOD has great plans for us that we can step into our power and become Funk Soul Brothers and Sisters. It is when we stand in our truth that we can overcome any obstacle that comes our way. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Finding Joy!!!
People have asked me JDOGG how do you continue to find joy after losing your job on Friday, being in a Dunkin Donuts that was robbed on Friday, and all the other things that you have been through in your life. I answer very simply by being grateful for the experiences and understanding that if GOD brought me to it GOD will bring me through it. If I commit to serve GOD with love and joy in my heart GOD will deliver love and joy into my heart. When I stay connected to GOD I am able to find joy and comfort. Through this connection I am able to give praise to GOD and show gratitude thus creating a life filled with much peace, love, joy, and prosperity. I have come to learn through the spiritual awakening process that it is when we are connected spiritually that we can create a better human existence.
In giving praise to GOD I have been able to find joy despite some of the obstacles that have come into my life. I have come to understand that GOD will not put anything on your plate that you can not handle. I have also come to learn that GOD will put people in your life that may create some adversity so as to teach you lessons so that you can move forward in a positive direction of your dreams. It is when we give the glory to GOD that we are able to receive glory here on earth. It is through praise and acknowledgement of GOD that we can check our ego at the door and stop edging GOD out. It is when we are connected to GOD that we find joy.
We may have some sadness that our weeping washes away so as to make room for the joy that GOD will give us. It is when we go very deep inside and tap into our inner divinity that we are able to let go and let god and thus find joy that then leads to abundance. It is important to find out what makes you happy and what also pleases GOD and then to take action to follow whatever it is that brings joy into your life and also pleases GOD. Read More→
