It is time for you to explode into greatness just like the spectacle that is a fireworks show. You have the chance to tap into your inner divinity and be guided by GOD to explode into greatness which is your birthright. You were not born to be ordinary you were born to be exceptional. It is when you begin to find your purpose and embrace it that you will find yourself exploding into greatness. It is up to you to ignite the spark that will passionately drive you become more aware and awake by taking action while you are experiencing a spiritual awakening.

If you want to explode into greatness you mus have a heart that is on fire fro what the mind can conceive and the heart can believe you can achieve. As you fill your heart with a burning passion and then taking action you will find success. I recently came into 19 boxes of assorted books as a result of  my cousin passing away a few weeks ago. I could have worried about where I am going to store all these different books and what I am going to do with them but instead I sat in meditation and a vision came to me. That vision was do a Books For The Cure Fundraiser benefiting The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise and donate 50% of all sales to The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise. Well today I received payment for some of The Tarot Books someone purchased and $5 is being donated to The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise. It was because I was will to explode into greatness by listening to the messages being sent to me that I am able to help plant the seeds of hope and healing for those touched by cancer. In having a burning heart you are able to take action and follow your passion and thus be met with success. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening:On Top Of The World!!!

As you go through the spiritual awakening process by becoming an action taker you will find that you feel as though you are on the top of the world. This feeling exists because you have been able to strengthen your relationship with GOD by taping into your inner guidance and acting on the messages that you are receiving from GOD, The Ascended Masters, and Your Angels. As you become more aware and awake of how you are evolving personally, professionally, and spiritually you will experience the top of the world feeling more and more. This top of the world feeling will come into play every time you let go and Let GOD and as a result you will attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. As you forward along your spiritual path you will find it easier to obtain the top of the world feeling simply by detaching and allowing things to flow as GOD has planned for you. In becoming someone who is of value and service you will find yourself feeling better and eliminating the negativity that was holding you back and creating blockages from achieving the life you desire.
As you forward in a positive direction of your dreams you will see that you experience a top of the world feeling bringing bliss and abundance to you and those that you come in contact with as you move along your spiritual path. It has taken me a while to understand that the only person I can control is me and the only being that I have to answer to is GOD. In the past I used to project how I wanted things to be then I came to the understanding that the way things are and the way things should be are two very separate things. As a result I go about doing what I can do to spread positivism and kindness to others. I have come to do my best to live by The Four Agreements so that I experience the best life for myself.

Spiritual Awakening: Spark It Up And Pass It Along!!!

It is when we spark up our creativity and take action that we enhance the spiritual awakening process. On of my favorite exhibits at EPCOT is Journey Into Imagination as it reminds us just how powerful we are and how important it is to collaborate with others to bring our visions to life. It taking action on a vision that you conceive in your mind and believe in your heart you will manifest what you are seeking. In imagining and then bringing that idea to life you also come alive and find that you are expanding in your personal, professional, and spiritual life. How many times have you been told by others that it is impossible or your idea is crazy and you didn’t pursue your idea only to see someone else implement it and have success? How many times have you let negative self talk sabotage you and stop you from taking action? There will always be doubters, naysayers, and haters but do not allow them to rent space in your head. Through the spiritual awakening process I have learned there are no bad ideas and that you never know until you take action. In taking action and putting your idea put there you will see what is working and what needs improvement. In using your imagination and making sure you write things down as they come to you it will allow you to take action when ready. I recommend that you get a legal pad and  carry it with you and keep it with in arms length at all times so you can record your ideas and then take action to bring them to life. I have a friend who carries a small tape recorder with him every where he goes and when he has an idea he speaks it into the tape recorder and then when he has 15 minutes he listens to the playback and thus is able to begin the process of taking action on the idea.  Simply imagine and then take action to bring the vision to life.

Imagine if everyone began to subscribe to the belief that the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations what a world we would have. If we simply began to understand that we are all divine children of GOD and that GOD has great plans for us we would become more aware and awake thus allowing us to make a mind, body, soul connection which would lead us to manifesting the life we desire. Remember that you are where you are today in the place that GOD has planned you to be and everything is the way it is supposed to be at this time. It is when you can visualize and act as if that you will begin to understand more clearly your spiritual awakening. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Light A Candle Of Hope!!!

As I was preparing to leave my condo today to go out an take action to spread a message of hope and healing I reached into my cash box for a $50 gas card and while doing so I knocked over and broke The American Cancer Society Hope Award that I received in 2008 as part of my involvement with Relay For Life. As I picked up the pieces and put them in the garbage I realized that it was no the award that was important but what it represented. The award represented me becoming a beacon of hope for those touched by cancer. As I placed the pieces of the award into the garbage I also realized that this was a message to stop living in the past and to pick up the pieces of my life and light the flame inside of me that will become a candle of hope. In becoming an action taker and becoming more aware and awake I have come to understand that there are messages that come to us daily. It is up to us to take these messages and light a candle of hope that will encourage others to do the same thus illuminating the world. As I took the broken pieces of The Hope Award and placed them in the back I thought about how important it is to throw the pieces of my life that are no longer serving me away and to simply face everything and rise. As I though more and more about the award I realized that it is not about the award at all it is about the journey and the positive impact made along the way.  It is when we light our candle that we encourage others to do the same and as a result we begin to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives. In taking a deep breath and understanding that everything happens for a reason we can add value to our life so that we can be of service to others. It is when we light candles of hope and understand that we have the ability to help other people excel be it with a word of encouragement or designing an action plan with them. Sometimes it is as simple as being a candle in the wind.

On of the people I admired over the years was Lady Diana who showed the world that regardless of our status in life we can make a difference in the world. When Lady Diana passed on August 31, 1997  I remember hearing this song and realizing that it was time to rekindle a spark inside of me that desired to show the world that service to humanity was the best work of life. Over the years I have had many opportunities to be a candle of hope by being of service and value to the communities where I have lived, worked, and played. In understanding that I have an opportunity to be a candle of hope on a daily basis by simply being positive and encouraging I am able to attract light into my life that allows me to move forward in a positive direction of my goals. Take a moment to be a candle in the wind and inspire others to become action takers so that they can enhance their lives and the lives of others. Shine your light bright for the world to see.

Spiritual Awakening: Please Rise!!!

In the course of my life these 3 anthems have played a role in my spiritual development. The first one is The National Anthem of Israel, the second  is The National Anthem of The Philippines, and The third is The National Anthem of The United States. each one brings me back to times that helped in my personal, professional, and spiritual development. In the last few days as I sat in quiet meditation I began to reflect on the symbolism of each anthem and how they molded me in becoming an action taker. I then realized that as I have done many cultural events I have stated the words please rise for the playing of (Insert Anthem Here). I then started to think how many times I must of stood for each of these anthems be it competing in The local Macabi Games, competing in swim meets, or serving as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in The Philippines. In each case I stood and really focused on the words and found that they shared a common thread of respecting and honoring your country while being of service and value to others. Over the years when I have announced games or emceed events I have seen many people sit idly bye and not respect the colors of the nation that is being presented. Not standing for an anthem really doesn’t do anything. If you are unhappy with the ways things are in a country and you believe you have the power to change it then it is up to you to tap into your inner divinity and take action to improve the quality of life for everyone. This is a big responsibility so now is the time to rise and take action to spread positivism.

As you move forward and rise toward the life GOD has planned for you you will start to understand that if you are given great talents it is important for you to share them. When I was Bar Mitzvah in 1978 I spoke of the fact we have a responsibility to be of service and value in all that we do as we owe it to those who sacrificed so much so that we can have a better life. Many said how full of wisdom I was for a 13 year old others said I was full of something else. Now here I am nearly 39 years later sharing the same concept encouraging people to rise for one another and to be of service and value. Over the years the concept of being of service and value have entered my life on many occasion. When I entered high school I looked for ways to help others and this continued through out my college days and today I do my best to show people that service to humanity is the best work of life. Again some say the message is full of hope and healing while others say it is full of something else. I have decided to focus on those who are encouraging and supportive and to allow doubters, haters, and naysayers to go pound sand. As a result of sticking to the belief that I was put on the earth to serve others I have risen to heights that i could never have imagined. I have had experiences that some only dream about. I have accepted that there is much expected from me because I have always given 100% when I chose to rise up and become an action taker. If we are going to be the change we want to see in the world we must rise and show respect for ourselves and others by answering our calling and coming alive by positively impacting the lives of those we come in contact with. It is imperative that we grow personally, professionally, and spiritually by rising up and showing respect and compassion to others.

Spiritual Awakening: Tools To Help You Rise!!!

One way to rise is to commit to rise up by adopting your own anthem.


This poem has served as an excellent tool to rise above the negativity and to spread positivism. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: The Freedom Path!!!

Over the last few weeks a common theme continued to fill my daily experiences with the common thread of freedom. In thinking of breaking free by letting go and letting GOD I quickly realized that if I am to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually I must become an action taker. I sat in meditation and received a message that I was not the only one who was longing to break free and become more and more spiritually aware and awake. As certain events unfolded in the realm that we call human existence I realized that in order to be on a freedom path I must break the chains and remove blockages by shifting thoughts that were limiting me to thoughts that are limitless. It was time to look at how I can achieve things and to take action to move forward in a positive direction of my dreams. It was time to take on new opportunities and challenges by taping into my inner divinity and simply making a mind, body, soul connection.It was time to truly internalize the belief that what the mind can conceive, the heart can believe, and you can achieve. It was time to really study the four agreements and come into alignment spiritually, mentally, and physically. It was time to detach from outcomes and simply give 100% in all I did by following my passion and taking action. In making adjustments and getting back to my spiritual base I was able to reawaken spiritually and thus be rewarded for my actions by taking solace in the fct that I am a divine child of GOD and GOD has great plans for me. I have also learned to simply stand in your truth and your truth will set you free.
It is said the two greatest days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why. When you discover your purpose you are able to move along the freedom path thus awakening spiritually so that you can continue to be of service and value to others. In getting on the freedom path we begin to see why we are here and how much of an impact we are making. Sometimes it is simply a matter of letting go and facing everything and rising. As you break free and understand that you have a purpose in this human existence you will begin to attract the  resources necessary to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. If each day you do something to fulfill your purpose you will find that bliss and abundance will enter your life. It is when you remove the shackles you begin to feel free. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Slow Your Roll!!!

As we awakening spiritually and become more and more aware and awake it is important to understand that there comes a time to slow your roll. Sometimes we have to simply look back and eliminate those things that no longer serve us. On of the greatest things we can do to take action is to remove those things that no longer bring peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our life. Sometimes it is as simple as making better lifestyle choices like what we put into our bodies, who we surround ourselves with, or what we consume as content. It is believed that what you focus on expands so if you are focusing on the negative and playing the role of poor me you will attract the same things that put you in this mindset whereas if you focus on the positive and come from a position of gratitude you will improve your personal, professional, and spiritual life. I have  come to understand that sometimes it is just a matter of slowing your roll and taking a few days to yourself to reflect, relax, and rejuvenate. It is when we become more in tune with the fact that we are divine children of GOD and GOD’S plans are far greater than our own plans that we are able to slow our roll and create the life that we desire.

Spiritual Awakening: All You Need Is A Little Bit of Heart And Soul!!!

The year was 1987 and I was getting ready to graduate from Hofstra University. Heart and Soul was one of the top songs that year and it became an anthem of mine. As I sat in the Hofstra Gymnasium waiting for my name to be called it occurred to me that as long as I put a little bit of heart and soul into all I was going to do that things would turn out okay. As I continue on my spiritual journey I understand more and more that it takes a bit of heart and soul to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. Many times it is just a matter of going forward with an idea regardless of what others might say about the idea and understanding that if you put your heart into what you are doing and you create a oneness consciousness that everything will work out for the best. I have come to understand that it is important to conceive it in your mind and to believe it in your heart so that you can achieve it. If you are an avid reader of this blog you know the concept that I preach which is passion+ action = success. When you put your heart and soul into anything people will sense your passion and will vibrate on the same level with you and as a result support you. There will be those who will not resonate with you for they are not ready to walk the path that leads to spiritual enlightenment. When you encounter these people simply remember it is not your job to drag them kicking and screaming onto the path but it is your job to keep putting your heart and soul into what you are doing and to shine your light bright to illuminate the world understanding that when they are ready they will experience their own spiritual awakening. When you embrace the spiritual awakening process and put your heart and soul into everything you do there will be no stopping you.
When you become heart centered and make the commitment to put your heart and soul into everything that you do you will see that you are unstoppable. Remember that you are a divine child of GOD and GOD wants you to prosper. As you become more loving and caring you will begin to attract loving and caring people into your life who will lift you to heights that you never thought possible. Many times we are told that something is impossible when in reality when you break the word down it says I am possible. When you start to put your heart and soul into things you being to see the realm of endless possibilities.  Recently someone said that a group couldn’t raise $7,000 in 2 days and reach a milestone. I piped up and said yes it can be done all you have to do is believe and take action. Guess what the goal of raising $7000 in 2 days was achieved because people put their heart and soul into the effort and began to believe that people would help. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Such Is Life!!!

As we go about dealing with our human existence we must realize that in taking action we are going to experience many ups and downs. When we experience the downs that is when we must call on our inner divinity and get reconnected with GOD so that we can move forward in a positive direction of our dreams. In our spiritual journey we will encounter many different people and situations and it is important to remember that we can only control how we react to the people and the situation. It is important to realize that not everyone will resonate with you or your message so it is important to simply be your authentic self and just let everything flow according to GOD’S plan and not try to force your plan into existence. On many occasion we will say such is life or it is what is simply because we have yet to discover a different way. If you do not like the way things are going be an action taker and become more aware and awake and make a change. In coming alive and making changes you will attract those who want to support you along your journey and begin to eliminate those who do not enhance your personal, professional, or spiritual life. Over the years as I have been committed to being of service and value to the community I have encountered many people who have shot down my ideas and many that have been supportive. I have found myself on many occasion focusing on the negative instead of celebrating the positive. It has taken me many steps to change from stinking thinking to aromatic thinking. When I focused on the positive things and celebrated the support I have received I have found myself centered, focused, and grounded thus reaching heights I never thought imaginable. When I focused on the negative I found myself in a very dark place that created blockages that held me back from stepping into my power and achieving the greatness that is my birthright. It was when I encountered the darkness that I quickly reminded myself that only by shining my light bright can I illuminate the world. As a result I found myself accomplishing and exceeding goals and attracting more peace, love, joy, and prosperity into my life. I have come to understand that not everyone I encounter shares my passion and love for life and thus I must change the things I can accept the things I can’s and have the wisdom to know the difference.
Life will go on with or with out you so it is important to understand that this is the day that the lord hath made so be glad and rejoice in it. The attitude you bring to life will determine your altitude. I have come to understand that it is important to go where you  are celebrated and not just tolerated. I have come to understand that it is important to go places where you can experience joy and bring joy to others. It is important to realize that you can not hide from challenges and that it is necessary to face everything and rise. I have learned there will be people who just are not ready to walk with you on your spiritual path and you can not bring them kicking and screaming you simply have to shine your light and be a living example that service to humanity is the best work of life and when they are ready they will join you. Such is life. Read More→
