I have come to realize that along my spiritual journey there will be some challenge and that not everything will go smoothly. When challenges arise we must remember that a joyful servant is rewarded. On Sunday (2/19/2017) my human side got the best of my spiritual side and I was very upset that I allowed the mean angry side out because I was frustrated. After I took a deep breathe and reflected on what I could have done differently I realized that my disconnection from source at the time was creating some confrontations that I wasn’t prepared for thus I wasn’t being a joyful servant. I took Monday, Tuesday, and part of Wednesday to understand why I was acting the way I was and why this disconnect was happening. I sat in meditation and prayed and the answer was revealed to me as I was worrying too much and that I was coming from a place of lack instead of abundance. On Wednesday night I decided to take action to change this and to reconnect with source by consulting the ascended masters, my angels, GOD, and Jesus and the message was clear as they all told me that I needed to be a joyful servant. I was also told to detach from outcomes and to stop worrying so much and simply to answer my calling by using my talents for good. As a result I went this morning and began to promote and fundraise for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life and I was met with success as I detached from the outcome and decided to be a joyful servant by simply changing the way I was doing things. In making a positive change and moving forward in a positive direction of my goals I was able to make a joyful noise unto the lord and thus get closer to my goal of raising $2500 to help those touched by cancer. My donation page is http://main.acsevents.org/goto/jdogg18 if you are so moved to take action and help to fund research, education, advocacy, and services for cancer patients, their families, and friends.
Sometimes all it takes to get back on track and be a joyful servant is a song to remind us that we have divinity in our heart and that all we have to do is call on this divinity to guide us. In making a connection and remembering that we are divine children of GOD we attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives. It is when we understand that along our spiritual journey there will be obstacles and that if GOD brought us to it GOD will bring us through it that our lives begin to change. In becoming a joyful servant we begin to improve our community by looking at what we can do as an individual to change things. When we realize that we have an incredible power inside of us we begin to manifest the greatness that is our birthright.
When I forget that I am on this earth to be a joyful servant to GOD I play this Styx Song asking GOD to show me the way. When I ask for guidance I am given many messages to follow to find the way and thus enabling me to be of service and value. One of the messages that I received while I felt disconnected was to become a cheerful giver and to be loving and caring in all that I do. I have come to learn that when you are frustrated and feel moved to anger to simply step back take a deep breath and allow GOD to guide you. The hardest thing we have to do in our human existence is to let go and let GOD. In taking action to reconnect to GOD I realized that confrontations that I encountered were lessons for me to learn and the lesson I learned this week was regardless of how mad or angry you feel you must use one of the fruits of spirit, self control, and realize that by being angry you only attract negativity into your life and until you learn to control that anger the negativity will persist. Through this lesson I was able to reconnect to GOD by taking time to see what I can do differently and to spread positivism and take all setbacks as an opportunity to step us and thus remain a joyful servant.

Spiritual Awakening: Finding The Way!!!
Many times along our spiritual path we may be distracted by sources that are trying to take our focus off of our purpose. These sources will also try to sway us from our connection with GOD. It is when these sources come into our lives that we must remember that we are divine children of GOD and that GOD has a purpose for us and will intervene in our life as necessary. It is at the times when you feel distracted and off track that you must reach down deep inside an reconnect with your inner divinity and become an action taker. I have found that listening to songs like this one from Styx helps to serve as a reminder that we are all looking for our way in life. As we begin to find our way we start to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our life. When we awaken to our purpose we begin to achieve things that others only thought were impossible. It is when we find our calling that we can become the change we want to see in the world. In an effort to find our way we must connect with GOD, Jesus, our angels, and the ascended masters as they will guide on a path that brings harmony, bliss, and abundance into our lives. It is when you are shown the way and follow the messages by taking action that you will find a sense of fulfillment in your life.
In finding my way I have found that oracle cards like those from Doreen Virtue and Sonia Choquette are very helpful in assisting me to tap into my inner divinity and keeping me centered, focused, and grounded as I continue on my path of spiritual awakening. In following the messages of the cards I have come to have a deeper understanding of my purpose thus allowing me to evolve personally, professionally, and spiritually. It is when we utilize all the tools in our spiritual tool box that we are better able to make the mind, body, soul connection that will propel us to the greatness which is our birth right. 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: Get Off The Bench!!!
As we experience a spiritual awakening we must commit to become an action taker and get off the bench. There comes a time when we must simply put ourselves in center field and prepare for the world to see our light shining bright. So many times we get so caught up with worry about what will other people think that we keep ourselves on the bench. As a result of sitting on the bench and forgetting everything and running we create blockages that stop us from having the success that GOD has intended for us. It is only when we take action to face everything and rise by committing to getting off the bench that we manifest the live we want as divinely guided by GOD. Through a spiritual awakening we learn that we are talented beyond measure and when we use our talents for good we create a life that id filled with peace, love, joy, and prosperity. Every time we decide to get off the bench and take action we will be greeted with challenges. It is in overcoming these challenges that we grow personally, professionally, and spiritually knowing that if GOD brought us to it GOD will bring us through it. It is when we decide to get off the bench and look at everything in a positive light tat we begin to find more happiness and success in what we do. It is when we decide to get off the bench and play the game by our rules that we create bliss and abundance.
What game will you play to manifest the life that you desire. Will you be an action taker or an excuse maker? Will you go against the norm and play by your own rules not worrying what others think or will you succumb to the pressure of what is perceived as normal and hold yourself back? The choice lies with you and if you choose to tap into your inner divinity and be guided by GOD, The Ascended Masters, and the Angels you will see that the game you play will be one filled with many victories. Each day you have a choice you can sit on the bench wondering what might have been or you can get off the bench and see what will be. Every day you have 86,400 seconds in the day to get off the bench and to take action to answer your calling.
Make this a year where you get off the bench and use your time wisely. It is when you vibrate with love and commit to doing small things with great love that you begin to shine a bright light that illuminates the world. When you get off the bench you put forces in motion to help you move positive in the direction of your dreams. Make your season a season where you are guided by love and compassion and you will see that love and compassion is given back to you. Be one who is genuine in your desire to be of service and value. Seek ways where you will vibrate on a higher level that attracts people and things to you to help you in exceeding your goals and objectives. Get off the bench and be limitless. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Striking A Nerve!!!
When you walk in truth and righteousness sometimes you will strike a nerve with others that may not be as spiritually awakened or as aware as you are. In the ever changing spiritual awakening and growth process you will encounter people who simply do not resonate with your message. It is times when you are taking action that you are bound to strike a nerve. When you strike a nerve the best thing you can do is back off and simply ask GOD to bless the person whose nerve you struck in hopes that they won’t react similarly when the situation arise again. Most of the people I encounter are nice and understanding however there are those who I seem to strike a nerve with as I am passionate about what I do to be a lifter and help others. The truth is that not everyone is ready to be lifted however those that are ready will be presented to you and will be open to receive your message as they become awakened and decide to be on a path to improve their personal, professional, and spiritual life.
When you strike a nerve and someone gets their ire up all you can do is say I am sorry I have seemed to have offended you and simply walk a way because being confrontational is like wrestling a pig in the mud you both get dirty but the pig enjoys it. You may want to help but if the person you are helping is not ready to accept your help then all efforts are futile and it is time to move on. Remember as I have written many times before it is not your job to bring people kicking and screaming onto the path it is your job to shine your light bright and to illuminate the world so that when people are ready to get on the path you can be their guide.

Spiritual Awakening: A Higher Authority!!!
As I sat in reflection today I couldn’t get The Hebrew National Advertisement that states we answer to a higher authority out of my head. As I sat down to write this blog entry the universe once again delivered what I needed to get started to give a message that will help the reader to create a life filled with peace, love, joy, and prosperity as they pointed me to this song by Unspoken called higher. As I listened to the lyrics I began to realize that as we become more and more aware and awake that we must answer to a higher authority understanding that if we are to become successful we must be guide by GOD. If we are to move forward in a positive direction of our dreams we must let go of ego and realize that ego is edging GOD out. When we edge GOD out we become like a disconnected phone that can not make or receive calls and as a result we create blockages that hold us back from becoming the person GOD wants us to be. Until we fix the connection we remain broken and more and more issues arise and as a result our mental and physical well being are at risk. Once we realize that there is a higher authority we can begin to eliminate ego and begin to tap into our inner divinity and be divinely guided to create the life that we desire. It is when we let go and let GOD that we begin to see improvements in our personal, professional, and spiritual life. When we realize that it is not our job to bring people kicking and screaming onto our path but to shine our light bright so that when they are ready to get on the path that they have a starting point our lives change for the better.
The first step to embracing the concept of answering to a higher authority is to eliminate any negative and hateful feelings and create positive and loving feelings. Their will be pain as you let go of the people and things that no longer serve you and begin to follow you heart using your divine guidance system. That pain will subside and joy will begin to permeate your life as you walk with that higher authority and begin to understand that you are a strong vibrant person with purpose. Love will conquer all so do everything with great love and compassion. If you can not do big things do small thins with great love. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: A Funk Soul Brother!!!
As I reviewed my Facebook feed I saw a comment that read wishing you peace and light soul brother Jonathan. It was at that moment that I remembered this song by Fatboy Slim titled Funk Soul Brother. I began to think about what it means to be a Funk Soul Brother it means living in peace and sharing peace, love, joy, and prosperity. It mean being loving and caring in all you do. Being a Funk Soul Brother means standing up to injustice by using peaceful means and serving as an example to others that service to humanity is the best work of life. It means not allowing negativity to permeate your daily life. Being a Funk Soul Brother means walking in your truth by taking action that allows you to shine your light and illuminate the world.
There will be times when being a Funk Soul Brother has its challenges as your human side will want to override your spiritual side. It is at times like this that you must turn inward and be guided by your inner divinity so that you can live by the principles that have lead you to be a beacon of hope and healing for others. It is knowing that you can overcome any adversity that comes your way for if GOD brought you to it GOD will bring you through it. It is when we begin to understand that we are all divine children of GOD and GOD has great plans for us that we can step into our power and become Funk Soul Brothers and Sisters. It is when we stand in our truth that we can overcome any obstacle that comes our way. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Finding Joy!!!
People have asked me JDOGG how do you continue to find joy after losing your job on Friday, being in a Dunkin Donuts that was robbed on Friday, and all the other things that you have been through in your life. I answer very simply by being grateful for the experiences and understanding that if GOD brought me to it GOD will bring me through it. If I commit to serve GOD with love and joy in my heart GOD will deliver love and joy into my heart. When I stay connected to GOD I am able to find joy and comfort. Through this connection I am able to give praise to GOD and show gratitude thus creating a life filled with much peace, love, joy, and prosperity. I have come to learn through the spiritual awakening process that it is when we are connected spiritually that we can create a better human existence.
In giving praise to GOD I have been able to find joy despite some of the obstacles that have come into my life. I have come to understand that GOD will not put anything on your plate that you can not handle. I have also come to learn that GOD will put people in your life that may create some adversity so as to teach you lessons so that you can move forward in a positive direction of your dreams. It is when we give the glory to GOD that we are able to receive glory here on earth. It is through praise and acknowledgement of GOD that we can check our ego at the door and stop edging GOD out. It is when we are connected to GOD that we find joy.
We may have some sadness that our weeping washes away so as to make room for the joy that GOD will give us. It is when we go very deep inside and tap into our inner divinity that we are able to let go and let god and thus find joy that then leads to abundance. It is important to find out what makes you happy and what also pleases GOD and then to take action to follow whatever it is that brings joy into your life and also pleases GOD. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Weathering The Storm!!!
As I sit at Starbucks the chatter is all about The impending storm, Hurricane Matthew. The stores in the area have been ravaged of bread, water, and other staples. The gas stations are out of gas. I say wow so many people acting out of fear in an effort to weather a storm. I take a moment to reflect and realize that if GOD brought me to it GOD will bring me through it. I look at the worst case scenario, the best case scenario, and the most likely case scenario and then decide to release it all to GOD, The Ascended Masters, and The Angels. As the storm approaches I began to think about how many figurative storms I have experienced and any storms that I am currently experiencing and how important it is to tap into my inner divinity and go with my divine guidance system.
On of my storms is that I am have a tendency to hold things in and then explode with anger. This was the case this week at work as I have been giving The Owner of the store where I work ideas about improving his business and was told by another employee that I wasn’t doing my job right as I sold a piece of memorabilia that was retailing for $749.99 for $600 as we were doing a sale and this was authorized by the owner who after I sold the piece raised the price and sold a similar piece for $900. Instead of saying good job and telling me in the future check with him he had an employee point this out and the employee didn’t even acknowledge my sale and instead started to criticize me and that is when my human side got in the way of my spiritual side and I exploded. This anger stayed with me until I went to pick up merchandise to bring to the store I work at from another location and when I finally went face to face with the employee it got really heated. I then realized that being angry and letting this consume me was like wrestling a pig in the mud as you both get dirty but the pig enjoys it. It was at this time that I decided that I can not fight the windmills and be like Don Quixote and to go back to the teachings of the spiritual leaders who have taught me these four agreements.

Spiritual Awakening:Out Here On My Own!!!
Sometimes as you take action upon having a spiritual awakening you will find that you feel like you are out here on your own. Then one day you realize that you are not alone that you have ascended masters, GOD, Jesus, and Angels that are guiding you and bringing people into your life that will help you to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. Some of these people will be people that you never expected to cross paths with. Such was the case when I met Irene Cara at the 25th Anniversary Celebration of The Movie, Fame, while I was working for The Happy Herald, a monthly newspaper that only promotes good and positive news. I had the pleasure of interviewing Irene Cara who I had long admired. After I sent her the article she sent me a photo and I realized that we both had lifted each other that day. When I feel I am alone I look for some of Irene’s Songs and I get re-energized realizing that there are many people doing good deeds and that we are all famous in GOD’S eyes.
Sometimes we will be viewed as being out there and a bit off but it is important to understand that has always been the ones perceived to be crazy that have met with success. So many ties we are so set in our effort to fit in that we forget that we were not put here on this earth to fit in but we were put here to stand out. People may look at you and perceive you to be a maniac because you decided to take action and wear a sneaker that makes a statement like my Purple Beat Cancer Chuck Taylor All Stars. You may feel you are all alone when in reality there are many that want to get involved but they haven’t found a way to do so. Through the spiritual awakening process you will find that you will become more clear in your purpose and those that perceive you to be a maniac haven’t learned to get to know you. Remember it is not your job to bring them kicking and screaming onto the path that leads to enlightenment but to simply shine your light and illuminate the world understand that when they are ready they will get on the path.
