Spiritual Awakening: Going The Distance!!!
Though Rocky is a fictional character he showed us that when we reach down deep inside and tap into our inner divinity that we can go the distance and achieve greatness in our personal, professional, and spiritual life. It is when we commit to taking action that great things happen for us. If we are to go the distance we need to set our heart on fire and understand that what our mind can conceive and our heart can believe we can achieve. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Open Your Eyes!!!
As you begin to awaken inside it is important to open your eyes and look at all the beauty and opportunity that surrounds you. As you open your eyes and put judgement and attachment aside you will see that you are able to take action and thus move things forward in a positive direction of your dreams. In the awakening process it is important to let go and let GOD as GOD will open your eyes and put opportunities in front of you where you can be of value and service while prospering yourself and others. I have heard many people say how hard it is to find work and my answer is always that there is plenty of opportunity you just have to open your eyes and be ready ready to receive. Such was the case the other day as I was out collecting donations for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life as Rainbow had a help wanted sign in their window so I inquired and filled out the job application and guess what I start a part time on Monday (3/20/2017), which fits perfectly into my schedule. The idea is to open your eyes and be more aware and awake and prepared to take action.
When you are social media make sure you open your eyes and take action appropriately that will help you in your quest to be of service and value to others. In opening my eyes and taking action I have been able to secure some chance drawing items for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise, which will take place on May 5, 2017 at Piper High School from 6 PM – 12 AM (Midnight). I recently saw a post from a company, Sam Bat, a company that makes custom made baseball bats I wrote a comment asking them if they could donate a bat and they sent a bat that says Strike Out Cancer May 5, 2017. In opening my eyes and being awake and taking action I was able to secure this chance drawing item. I also was able to secure the assistance of my cousin who is a Scentsy Rep as she had posted on Facebook about her fundraising opportunity where she will donate 25% of all sales util April 28 to Relay For Life. The link is https:franklyscentsational.scentsy.us/party/7593720. In keeping your eyes open and taking action you will find that you grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Breaking Free!!!
The moment you awaken spiritually and decide to take action you set in motion all that is necessary to break free. When you commit to being your authentic self you are going to encounter some challenges as people will doubt you or try to tear you down. It is when you encounter these challenges that you must step into your power and walk in your truth. The key to breaking free is understanding you are a divine child of GOD deserving to be loved and respected. If you encounter those that do not lift you hold a special place fr them and pray and then break free. In doing things on your terms as you are guided by GOD you will find that you attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. In breaking free and detaching from expectations you will find that your level of bliss and abundance are increased. When you stop worrying about what everyone else will think and you break free by celebrating your spiritual awakening you will find that living a purpose driven life is very rewarding. In my experiences along my spiritual journey I have found that when I stand in my power and walk in my truth that good things happen. In breaking free from the so called norm you will find that your level of success increases as you will vibrate on a positive wave length that will attract the people and things into your life that will serve you.
Spiritual Awakening: Tools To Help You Break Free!!!
One way to break free is to consult with the ascended masters and listen to their messages. As you receive the messages remember to go from an excuse maker to an action taker. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Get The Fatigue Out!!!
The last couple of weeks have found me more fatigued as my human existence was interfering with my spiritual existence. The worries of life seemed to be weighing heavily on my mind and my motivation was waning as I began to allow the negative self talk and worry to consume my thoughts so there were a few days that I didn’t even get out of bed. I then realized that if I am to move in a positive direction toward my goals and dream I have to get the fatigue out. It was when I sat in reflection last night that I realized that the only way to overcome any worry and fear that is holding me back is to get the fatigue out. In making a commitment to make everyday count I got up this morning and went to The American Cancer Society Office to turn in money for The Relay For Life. I am now at $1076 raised toward a goal of $2500. I realized that if I am to exceed this goal I must take more action and get the fatigue out. As a result I have been sharing the donation page http://main.acsevents.org/goto/jdogg18 and asking people for donations and have met with success because I got the fatigue out. I have come to use the following poem as an anthem to help me get the fatigue out.
As I took time to rest and reflect I found myself rejuvenated with a sense of purpose where I was helping myself to overcome my own humanistic worries while also help other people to enhance their personal, professional, and spiritual life. It was when I shifted from a sense of worry to a sense of hop and purpose that I was able to get the fatigue out and be energized. It was when I sat down ad wrote in my gratitude journal and read passages from Rev. Dr. Dee Addio Mosses Book, heal Your Life With Meditation And Prayer and then read passages from The Miracle Minute by Mary Morrisey that I was able to get back on track with my mission to help other people excel by being of service and value to all those I come in contact with.

Spiritual Awakening: Unleash Your Inner Superhero!!!
As I picked out the superhero to represent for The 2017 American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise/Tamarac due to the theme being Superheroes For The Cure I began to think that each of us has a superhero inside of us to unleash. The inner superhero is usually the one that allows you to tap into your divinity thus allowing you to become an action taker and improve your life and the lives of others. It is when you realize that you have this great power inside of you that you begin to take the steps necessary to enhance your personal, professional, and spiritual life. In improving your personal, professional, and spiritual life you shine a bright light which allows others to find their inner superhero and as a result you begin to change not only your life but the lives of others. So many times people will tell us that it can’t be done or that we are not good enough. When you encounter these people it is important to simply walk away and then tap into your inner superhero and follow your heart as after all what the mind can conceive and the heart can believe you can achieve.
When I was growing up there was a very popular TV Show, The Greatest American Hero. In the Show Ralph would put on his special suit and be able to help make the world a better place. The good thing about being awakened spirituality is that you do not need a special suit to make a positive impact in the world all you have to do is tap into your inner divinity and do small things with great love thus creating a ripple effect where kindness will beget kindness. The superhero you have inside of you is calling to be let out for the world to see that you are committed to being of service and value to others by taking action to make a positive impact in the world. When you unleash your inner superhero ad spread peace, love, joy, and prosperity these things will come back you. It is when you find your purpose and answer the calling that you become a superhero. In unleashing your inner superhero you will encounter doubters and naysayers. When you do simple choose to simply ignore the negative and move on in a forward direction of your dreams. As y0u unleash your inner superhero you will find that you are attracting more lifters and supporters and that the universe is conspiring to help you manifest the life you desire. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Answered Prayers!!!
Each morning when I awake I thank GOD for another day to be of service and value. I ask GOD to make me an action taker and to give me the strength, courage, and enthusiasm to be a difference maker. As I go about my gratitude rituals such as writing in my gratitude journal I thank GOD for the prayers he has answered. Today I thank GOD for putting people in my life who are supporting my efforts to use my talents for good. I asked GOD to help me and guide me with my efforts to plant the seeds of hope and healing for cancer patients, their families, and their friends through my involvement with Relay For Life. GOD answered and gave me the tools to ask people to visit http://main.acsevents.org/goto/jdogg18 and make donations. In following his directions I have now raised $774 toward a goal of $2500 and I continue to let things go and let GOD. As a result my prayers are being answered.
In is when we put our trust in GOD that our prayers are answered. It is when we take action with the intention of glorifying GOD that we are rewarded with amazing results. GOD answers your prayers when he sees that you are using your talents for good. It is when you lift others up to GOD that you are lifted. may times GOD answers prayers in a very unique way. Such was the case when I wrote a message to Sam Bat, a company that makes customized baseball bats, asking them to support Relay For Life. After I wrote the message I prayed to GOD to bring this donation to fruition. On Saturday January 21 there was a knock on the door and a package was delivered for Relay For Life. It was a custom made maple bat from Sam Bat with the words Strike Out Cancer and May 5, 2017( The date of The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise). This will be used in the fundraising efforts as a tool to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. This is one of the many prayers that have been answered simply by letting go and letting GOD. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Stop The Madness!!!
A few years ago I made contact with an organization, Stop The Madness, and today I was looking for a topic to write about and I cam across this video and thought regardless of our race, sex, sexual orientation, creed, or social status that it is time for a spiritual awakening in our country. It is time that we all come together as one and recognize that we are all divine children of GOD and GOD has a purpose for each and everyone us. It is time for all of us to recognize the divinity in each other seeing that we are more alike than different. It is time to become action takers and make peace, love, and understanding the rule of the day.
It is time to stop the madness and start looking out for one another. It is a time of great change going on in our world right now as we are being confronted with challenges that have not been seen before thus it is time to face everything and rise and work together to make sure that while we journey along our spiritual path that we are shining a light so bright that it serves as a beacon of hope and healing for everyone to see. It is time to put differences aside and find a common ground so that our personal, professional, and spiritual lives are enhanced while we help to improve the lives of others. It is time we look for ways to come together and be of service and value to one another so that we can make our world a better place. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: 2017 A Year Of Hope And Healing!!!
Through out our lives we have experienced joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain. As we reflect back on the joy we get a sense of happiness that allows us to move forward by taking action toward becoming truly spiritually enlightened beings. As we look back at the pain we ask how can I remove the pain and become an action taker so that the healing process will continue. In my 51 years on this earth I have seen so much and experienced so much some experiences have been very happy while others have been sad. In has been in the moments of sadness that I have had to rely on my anthem that if GOD brought you to it GOD will bring you through it. The end of 2016 was a difficult time for me as I was going through some personal issues that put me in a really dark place. It was at the moment when I was all alone on New Year’s Eve that I declared that 2017 would be a year of hope and healing. In making this declaration I realized that I had a purpose to be of service and value to others and through this blog I could touch some lives and hopefully help the readers work through their challenges. It was though I had yet another Spiritual Awakening and realized that at the end of the day all that matters is that I did my best to be of service and value and honor GOD. I had let the fact that I lost a job that I really liked interfere with my ability to move forward. It was then that I went back to the teachings of Don Miguel Ruiz’s Four Agreements and realized that when I discount from them I create sadness and that every time sadness comes into my life I must reconnect. I also turned to The Serenity Prayer and realized that in this crazy mixed up world we live in it is important to understand that the only thing I can change is me. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Breaking The Rules!!!
As you begin to break free from the perceived societal norms during your spiritual awakening you will find yourself breaking many of the laws that have kept you from reaching your full potential. So many times we get boxed in by rules at work, school, or in organizations that we loose sight of our purpose to be of service of value to others while growing personally, professionally, and spiritually. It is when we get rid of the box and decide it is time to break some rules that we are able to see positive impact in our lives and the lives of those we come in contact with on a regular basis. It is when you become an action taker and begin to break the rules that are confining you and holding you back you will see your life in a totally different light. Freedom comes when you begin to stop worrying and start doing. How many times have you been told you can’t do something and you said I can do what I want as long as it doesn’t do any harm. I was out in the community today collecting donations to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays and I stopped into an office and the lady said we usually don’t allow soliciting but since it is for cancer and you have a name badge on along with your official shirt we’ll pass the canister. As I left that office I thought how many people in that office are being held back because of the rules? I alkso9 thought how many are operating out of fear of losing their job?
So many times rules are put into place to stop us from being free thinkers and action takers. Many of the rules in place today need to be broken and thrown away so as to improve the quality of your personal, professional, and spiritual life. I often see a no soliciting sign and I go into the business anyway because you never know who might be inspired by your presence and what you are doing. I often simply engage people that I don’t know, which I am told is not a societal norm, so that I can get to know someone and see how we can be of service and value to one another. The idea is to step out of the comfort zone that we have created by following rules and start to see how breaking rules will help us to reach a special level of spiritual enlightenment. I am not encouraging you to break all the rules as if you did that chaos would ensue and that would not benefit anyone. What I am advocating is to break out the constraints of rules that do not serve you. Read More→
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→
