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.

Image result for The Giving Heart MJ RyanI was introduced to this book a few years ago and I had the pleasure to interview M.J. Ryan on my radio show, Get Motivated With Jonathan JDOGG Lederman. 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: Close Calls!!!

Image result for Hurricane IrmaAs Hurricane Irma circled over my condo I had many close calls and as the power went off I thought wow now is a good time to simply pray and meditate. As I prayed and asked GOD to protect me and everyone in the path of this disastrous storm I realized that in my life there have been many close calls and some how each time I experienced a close call I came out of it spiritually stronger as the divinity inside of me became more and more awakened.  As the storm subsided and life took on a sense of normalcy I realized there are many who will have to rebuild as this storm took many of the materialistic items that people had accumulated over time. My mom, who was called home to GOD on July 5, 2012 after suffering a massive heart attack while battling non-operable metastatic lung cancer used to say if money can fix it everything will be all right. She was correct to a certain extent as you can not replace memories or the warmth of a home you grew up in or the items that had sentimental value. As the storm passed I remembered the teaching that if GOD brought me to it God will bring me through it. I thanked GOD for keeping the damage to my community minimal and then I prayed that he would make everyone whole and complete.  This close call made me realize just how lucky I was to make it through the storm and how fortunate I am to have talents to use to be of service and value to others.

At first I was mad that the driver didn’t see me and didn’t yield the right of way to me. After I avoided this close call I parked my car and I thanked GOD for watching over me. I then went in to the barber shop to get my hair cut. As I was leaving the barber shop I witnessed a car on fire two spots away from my car and I called 911 and moved my car to safety. I thought wow I just spent $300 on 2 new tires for the car and it was nearly caught on fire. As I hung up with the 911 operator and saw that I was safe I looked to the heaven and thanked GOD and Jesus for watching over me.  On my way to Starbucks I kept thinking how lucky I was and how many close calls I have had. There must be some message in these close calls. I think it is GOD telling me to slow down and find ways to be of service and value to others.  Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Stay Out Of The Fire Lane!!!

Image result for Fire LaneToday(9/5/2017) I decided as part of my spiritual awakening I would do a social experiment to see peoples reactions to me enforcing the no parking in the fire lane as I was at Citibank. It was pretty amazing to see the reactions as I simply told people that they were in a fire lane and that it would be appreciated if they moved their vehicle. Oh the reaction that I got most began to argue as ask who the f was I others said mind your own f’ing business. One lady was very nice and apologetic. I was amazed that of the 10 people I encountered that 9 were quick to anger and resorted to name calling instead of holding themselves accountable. As I sat in reflection I came to the understand that there will always be people who think they are above the law or that they don’t have to obey laws. These are the same people who have not evolved spiritually and will continue to be ignorant to the spiritual laws that govern us and they will wonder why they struggle in their personal, professional, and spiritual life. The people that don’t know to stay out of the fire lane are the same people who will eventually get burnt and then want to blame others for their mistake. It is funny one of the guys kept arguing and yelling even after he moved his car  as he kept calling me names and trying to put me down. I simply though you are the one who parked in the fire lane but I am the bad one for calling you out on it. That is the problem with our society today as people do not want to be accountable and thus try to put the blame on others.  Life would be so much easier for people if they stayed out of The Fire Lane. Think of the fire lanes that you are parking in as you begin to enhance your personal, professional, and spiritual life. The key is to stay out of the fire lane and leave that open for emergency vehicles. In our spiritual awakening those emergency vehicles are GOD, The Ascended Masters, and The Angels. In allowing room for the emergency vehicles you allow yourself to be open to the messages being delivered so that you can take action and keep on moving. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening:Dominate The Day With Glory!!!

As I was doing outreach yesterday(8/22/2017) for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise I ran into someone who simply wasn’t resonating with me. I simply made a comment asking for assistance with a fundraiser I was doing and this person decided to get vulgar and start calling me names via Facebook. I reminded myself of all my spiritual teachings and took the high road wishing him much success in his efforts to sell his items. When I finished my response I realized again that not everyone is going to resonate with you and that many people are not ready for a spiritual awakening. In understanding this I decided that I was simply going to focus on all the nice people who have sent items for the fundraisers that I am hosting to benefit The American Cancer Society Relay For Life Of Sunrise. As I began to release all the negative energy that the person calling me names and using vulgar language I began to process the fact that I encountered a person who simply has not evolved spiritually for someone who is spiritually aware and awake comes from a position of love and kindness. As I sat in reflection I made the conscious decision to dominate the day with glory. I began to remind myself that if GOD brought me to it that GOD would bring me through it. I also reflected on the fact that GOD loves a Cheerful Giver so I looked up to GOD and I thanked him for giving me the talents to use to make a positive impact on the lives of those touched by cancer. I thanked him for the ability to use my talents for good and for putting more positive people on my path than negative people. Yes it was hurtful to be called names and to have vulgarities thrown my way but due to my spiritual awakening I was able to let it go and focus on the good I am doing. I then thanked JESUS for showing me the way to glorify him and to be of service and value to others. After all it did turn out to be a glorious day. 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.

Image result for RhinestonesRhinestone

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!

Image result for Stay CalmImage result for Starbucks

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:Stop Majoring In The Minor!

Image result for Stop Majoring In The MinorImage result for Stop Majoring In The Minor

As we embrace the spiritual awakening process we need to stop majoring in the minor and look at the big picture. This week there was made about President Trump not allowing transgenders to enlist for military service. While this is a major issue the truth of the matter is that I really haven’t interacted with many transgenders in my lifetime and when I have I have been kind and compassionate remembering that it is not my place to judge. All over Facebook I saw people getting upset with this and arguing and I thought what our country needs is to stop majoring in the minor and to have a spiritual awakening recognizing that we are all divine children of GOD and we should not be judged by appearance but by our actions. It is time for a dose of spirituality so that we can stop worrying about the small stuff and remember it is all small stuff. The rule of the day needs to be kindness and love in all that you do. The finger pointing and excuse making needs to stop. It is time that we all understand that we a re more alike than we are different. I recommend that you stop watching all the negative news and get out in the community and get to know the people in your community that we stop with the chip on our shoulder and our entitlement attitude and start asking ourselves how do we help others to become more loving and compassionate. The discussions that have come across Facebook with people calling each other names because you have a different point of view does not help to enhance your personal, professional, or spiritual life instead it allows for the negative influences to permeate your thoughts thus stopping you from creating the life you desire. Think about what you are focusing on.  Read More→
