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.

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: Get Your Swag On!!!

 One of the terms I have  come to learn in the promotional and marketing realm is SWAG, which refers to the free items you get at events from different vendors. SWAG is also short for Swagger used to describe the way someone carries themselves. As I put on my Chuck Taylor Purple Beat Cancer Sneakers I began to see how getting your swag on can determine how people perceive you. Many have admired my sneakers and they have opened up a line of communication that has allowed me to interact with people and share my story. As a result I have attracted many people who want to help me on my mission to plant the seeds of hope and healing for cancer patients, their families, and their friends. As I walked into many businesses I saw people looking at my sneakers and I smiled and many made positive comments and I realized as I shine my light and get my swag on I have the chance to illuminate the world one person at a time. I have come to understand that when you get your swag you must be prepared to instill a philosophy of some will, some won’t, so what, some waiting, next as it is not your job to drag people kicking and screaming to your way of thinking but to simply shine your light bright for others to see thus giving them permission to shine their light. It is when you get your swag on that you can have a great influence on people and thus show the world that service to humanity is the best work of life.

When you decide to take action and get your swag on it is important that when you carry yourself with confidence and begin to assert yourself it is important to understand that not everyone will resonate with the way you do things or your message. Also remember the most successful people in the world were those that were seen as different or a bit out there as their thoughts were not mainstream however those who thought differently and implemented their ideas were the people that changed the world.

Spiritual Awakening: Don’t Fool Yourself!!!

Many times along our spiritual journey we come to a crossroad where we may be fooling ourselves because we have not released our limiting beliefs. The key is to understand that we must not be fooled by our limitless beliefs and we must stop our negative self talk and simply begin to understand that we are divine children of GOD capable of great things. It is when we stop listening to the doubters and the haters and the negative thoughts in our head that we are able to move forward and begin to manifest the life that we desire. How many times have you said I can’t or I’ll try only to find that you kept yourself stuck because you didn’t take action on what you really wanted and you allowed yourself to stop and thus are left with questions like what might have been or what could have been? Let’s change the thoughts from I can’t or I’ll try to I can and I will and see what begins to happen. You might have to be relentless in your pursuit to bring something to fruition however you will find that by being tenacious and driven you will find success. The time is now to plan your work and work your plan and stop fooling yourself. So many times we get so caught up in why something can not work that we never get started to make it work. Some call this stinking thinking and they are right. I have  come to learn that you must ask the universe for what you want and then take the appropriate action to allow the universe to deliver it.

Jarvis Landry Sinbad Sports

A great example of this is my work with Sinbad Sports. I have a goal to sell 350 autographs and I know that I can not just wish for the people to come I must go out into the community and share this event and do my best to let as many people know about the signing and the store. I have been posting on Facebook and sharing www.sinbadsports.com with people. I have also been sharing the post cards and attending events inviting people to come and have detached from the outcome knowing that I will be successful because I am taking action as directed by GOD and following his message. The great thing about this signing is that a portion of all the autograph sales will be used to help children get back to school clothes and supplies thus fitting into my purpose to show people that service to humanity is the best work of life. In taking action and doing my best I know that I will meet with success. It is important to remember that your attitude will determine your altitude. In not allowing myself to be discouraged by those saying people won’t pay $69 for an autograph and moving forward i am finding people who will pay $69 for an autograph and who will buy other items to get signed when they come to the store. By being in tune with my inner divinity and following my heart I am finding people who will come to the store and purchase autograph tickets and merchandise. In simply sharing information and detaching from the outcome I am finding success. It is when you stop fooling yourself and start believing in yourself you will find success. Read More→
