Spiritual Awakening: Keep Calm And Keep Giving!!!

Image result for god loves a cheerful giverThrough the spiritual awakening process I have come to realize that whatever you bring to a situation is returned to you. This was very evident yesterday (11/8/2017) when I had a slight traffic mishap in the parking lot at my condo. I was upset because the lady I hit spoke no English and I told her we live in American learn English well this was overheard by the neighbors and they were upset. I took a deep breath and apologized and we worked everything out. As I went about my business of the day I realized that what ever you give you get back tenfold thus if you want peace you need to be peaceful. If you take action filled with love and gratitude you will receive love and gratitude in return.

It is when you stay calm and keep giving without an expectation of return that you grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. If you stay calm and keep giving from a place that id filled with peace, love, joy, and prosperity you will attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. When you remain calm and take a step back to detach from the situation you will find that everything works out just the way GOD intended it to work out for you. GOD may put some challenges along your path to remind you of the importance of being humble and refraining from the emotions that create blockages and stop you from moving toward spiritual enlightenment. In every situation you face their is an opportunity for growth.

It was through these lessons that I learned the importance of keeping calm and giving. I learned that when you are authentic about your giving that you are rewarded. Sometimes it is a matter of simply giving of yourself that creates opportunities for personal, professional, and spiritual growth. The lessons learned over the last several days have allowed me to see that it is when I am focused, centered, and grounded with the intention of helping others that my life flows in a positive manner. I have learned that in tough situations it is important to stay calm and keep giving love and compassion to others. It is important to focus on the good that can come of all situations by remembering that if GOD brought you to it GOD will bring you through it. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Polish Up Your Rhinestones!!!

Upon learning of Glen Campbell’s passing after battling Alzheimer’s I began to think what legacy will you leave when GOD calls you home? I thought of the importance of polishing up our own rhinestones in the form of the talents that we posses. Each of us has a talent that GOD wants us to use to prosper ourselves and others. As part of the spiritual awakening process we begin to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives as soon as we unleash our talent on the world. It is when we think globally and act locally that we polish up our rhinestones allowing us to shine our light brightly that we illuminate the world. When we become action takers we set in motion resources that propel us closer and closer to becoming an enlightened being.

A rhinestone, paste or diamante is a diamond simulant made from rock crystal, glass or acrylic. Originally, rhinestones were rock crystals gathered from the river Rhine. The availability was greatly increased in the course the 18th century when the Alsatian jeweller Georg Friedrich Strass had the idea to imitate diamonds by coating the lower side of glass with metal powder. Hence, rhinestones are called strass in many European languages. Rhinestones can be used as imitations of diamonds, and some manufacturers even manage to reproduce the glistening effect real diamonds have in the sun. In 1955, the Aurora Borealis, a thin, vacuum-sputtered metallic coating applied to crystal stones to produce an iridescent effect, was introduced by Swarovski. Aurora Borealis tends to reflect whatever color is worn near it, and it is named after the Aurora Borealis atmospheric phenomenon, also known as the “Northern Lights”. Similar treatments are Aqua aura and “Flame aura”. Typically, crystal rhinestones have been used on costumes, apparel and jewelry. Crystal rhinestones are produced mainly in Austria by Swarovski and in the Czech Republic by Preciosa and a few other glassworks in northern Bohemia. In the US, these are sometimes called Austrian Crystal. In the Spanish-speaking world they are called Cristal de Bohemia. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Calmness Has Its Rewards!

Through out the spiritual awakening process I have come to understand that in the face of a challenge where your human existence seems to want to take over your spiritual existence you must take a deep breath and remain calm. In staying calm in the heat of a adverse moment will lead to unexpected rewards. Today (8/4/2017) I stopped by Starbucks after doing some banking. I went to recharge my card to be told it was on hold. Instead of getting mad I calmly called the 1-800 number. I waited on hold for a while and finally after what seemed an eternity I spoke to a customer service representative. We had a pleasant exchange and at the end she informed that she was adding $10 to my card because I was inconvenienced. In taking action in a calm manner I was rewarded. As we continue along our path toward spiritual enlightenment it is important to remember that when you are calm the vibration you give off will be met with calmness and you will be rewarded. In remaining calm and staying positive you put out a vibration to the universe showing that you have evolved as a spiritual being and you are ready to receive the resources desired to create the life that you want.

Image result for calm cool collected quotesIn every situation you encounter it is important to stay calm, cool, and collected. Self-control is one of the fruits of spirit that allows us to progress in a positive manner in our personal, professional, and spiritual life. It is imperative to remember that the only person you can change is you. getting heated and angry does not serve you as it is like wrestling a pig in the mud you both get dirty but the pig enjoys it. The best way to solve a problem is to simply take a deep breath and remain calm for getting angry only escalates the problem and many times makes the situation worse. Today at the bank a woman was in the non-customer line and she was a customer she was taken before a few people and one guy remarked I guess the rest of us are invisible. I simply made a joke and said oh English and Reading Classes start Monday followed by I am kidding. In doing this it seemed to ease the tension and everyone relaxed a little bit understanding that waiting is part of the process. have learned that having a sense of humor and being comfortable with who I am goes a long way in easing the most tense situations.  I understand there will be times when your patience is tried because the people you are dealing with may not be as spiritually evolved as you are so when this happens you must simply let go and Let GOD. I do my best to remember that the way things are and the way things should be are two different things. In staying calm I have been rewarded. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Turning Pages!!!

As you embrace the spiritual awakening process and begin to become an action taker it is important to remember to turn the page. Today (8/2/2017) marks my 52nd year on this earth. As I turn the page of another year lived I look back and take in all the lessons learned along the way. There have been many triumphs and many tragedies in the last year and each one has come with a spiritual lesson that has allowed me to become more aware and awake. Each time I face adversity I am reminded of my anthem, Stay Positive. As I remind myself that even in the darkest of ties there is a light to step into that will guide me in a positive direction of my dreams. It is important to bask in the glow of that light and heed the messages as they will allow all of us on a spiritual path to turn the page and start a new. Each day we are given 1,440 minutes to use to advance our personal, professional, and spiritual life. How we choose to utilize those minutes is up to us. We can get caught up in the arguments and name calling on social media about that which we can not control or we can focus on following our passion by taking action that will lead to success. At the end of the day when that last minute ticks off we are given another 1,440 minutes to use presenting us with opportunities to turn the page. We can not go back to the past and we do not know what the future brings so we must live in the moment cherishing the minutes we have been given and using them in the best interest of being of service and value. There have been many days when I decided to simply rest and do nothing and I know I can not get those days back so I have begun to say to myself in the past and up into now I used to sleep the day away but starting now I will make the most of the minutes turning the page and writing my own story as directed by GOD.
As you allow GOD to write your story and turn the pages you will find yourself attracting more peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your personal, professional, and spiritual life. We have the power to tap into our inner divinity an create the life that we desire. It starts with the idea of turning the pages and letting go and letting GOD. There have been many times that I have lost the connection with GOD and then I took time to get back to being centered, focused, and grounded by remembering that GOD’s plan is far greater than my own.

Spiritual Awakening:Who Are You Walking With?

As you awaken spiritually and become more and more aware of your purpose it is important to take an inventory of who you are walking with as you become the sum of the people you surround yourself with through out your spiritual journey.  When you decide to walk with ascended masters  like Jesus and take action according to the messages they are sending you will become a magnet for peace, love, joy, and prosperity. In becoming awake and aware of who you are walking with you will be able to more effectively answer and embrace your calling by becoming an agent of change in your community. Mother Teressa once said that if you can not do great things do small things with great love. Mother Teressa would have been someone great to walk with and follow along a path toward spiritual enlightenment. Though you may not be able to physically walk with Mother Teressa today you can carry on her teachings by showing love and compassion in all that you do to shine your light bright and illuminate the world. As you look at who you are walking with make sure you surround yourself with people who make you come alive, who lift you up, and support you in your endeavors to be of service and value. Along your path take an inventory of the people who are impeccable with their word, who do not take things personally, who do not judge, and who always do their best and surround yourself with them. Along your spiritual path there will be times to detach from those who do not serve you as they no longer help you to become the enlightened being that you are destined to become. It is hard to detach from those who no longer support your personal, professional, and spiritual growth but it is necessary to move on so that you walk with the people that GOD intends you to be walking with along your path to becoming a beacon of hope and healing for others. In deciding who to walk with you must take the emotions out of the equation and decide based on the premise to find those people who will help to enhance the spiritual awakening process. Yes, it will get lonely at times and in those times it is important to remember that you are never alone as GOD, Jesus, The Ascended Masters, and Your Angels are always with you to help you follow your dreams and be guided by the universe that will conspire to allow you to step into your power and achieve the greatness that is your birthright.

Spiritual Awakening: The Eyes Of Your Heart!!!

In 2003 the movie Radio came out and it showed what happens when you open up your heart to be a lifter and look beyond your limitations. It showed how powerful one act of kindness can be. It is through the spiritual awakening process that you gain the ability to tap into your inner divinity and start to embrace the fact that you are a divine child of GOD. As you continue to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually you will find yourself more open to showing love and thus love will be returned to you. In taking action to be a lifter you will be lifted. When you have  clear eyes and an open heart you can not lose. Life will throw some obstacles your way because many will not understand you. When those obstacles arise remember that if GOD brought you to it GOD will bring you through it.
As you start to look into your heart ask yourself how far would you go to be of service and value to others. Would you give up something you love to help lift someone else? In your spiritual journey you will be asked to let go of that which no longer serves you in your quest to become a fully enlightened being. In sacrificing for the greater good and releasing that which no longer serves us we are able to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives.

James Robert “Radio” Kennedy was inducted into The Hanna High School Hall Of Fame. His story shows us just how important it is to see people as whole regardless of their lot in life. It teaches us the importance of kindness and compassion. It shows us the importance of not passing judgement and getting to know the entire story before making assumptions. It exhibits the importance of living a purpose driven life and the importance of finding our path.  It is when we give of ourselves and show others that service to humanity is the best work of life that we are rewarded. Sometimes it is as easy as just getting to know someone and finding a way to lift them up. How will you become more and more aware and awake to lift others while you yourself are lifted?

Spiritual Awakening: Inspiration To Open The Eyes To Your Heart

When you show kindness you open up your heart very deep so that it can receive love and kindness. It is when you pay it forward that you grow personally, professionally, and spirituality. It is time to share random acts of kindness so as to create positivism everywhere you go. When you are kind and compassionate you will receive kindness and compassion in return. The lord loves a cheerful giver so open up the eyes to your heart and let GOD fill it with bliss that will lead to abundance. In helping others to get what they want we get what we want.  As you continue on your spiritual journey seek ways to show love and compassion and you will begin to experience a sense of happiness that money can not buy.  As you go about your daily tasks may you see clearly into your heart and tap into your divine guidance system to become a person of action for the great good of the world.  May you find your calling and follow your spiritual path to shine your light bright and illuminate the world. Namaste!!!
