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: Get Your Swag On!!!
One of the terms I have come to learn in the promotional and marketing realm is SWAG, which refers to the free items you get at events from different vendors. SWAG is also short for Swagger used to describe the way someone carries themselves. As I put on my Chuck Taylor Purple Beat Cancer Sneakers I began to see how getting your swag on can determine how people perceive you. Many have admired my sneakers and they have opened up a line of communication that has allowed me to interact with people and share my story. As a result I have attracted many people who want to help me on my mission to plant the seeds of hope and healing for cancer patients, their families, and their friends. As I walked into many businesses I saw people looking at my sneakers and I smiled and many made positive comments and I realized as I shine my light and get my swag on I have the chance to illuminate the world one person at a time. I have come to understand that when you get your swag you must be prepared to instill a philosophy of some will, some won’t, so what, some waiting, next as it is not your job to drag people kicking and screaming to your way of thinking but to simply shine your light bright for others to see thus giving them permission to shine their light. It is when you get your swag on that you can have a great influence on people and thus show the world that service to humanity is the best work of life.
When you decide to take action and get your swag on it is important that when you carry yourself with confidence and begin to assert yourself it is important to understand that not everyone will resonate with the way you do things or your message. Also remember the most successful people in the world were those that were seen as different or a bit out there as their thoughts were not mainstream however those who thought differently and implemented their ideas were the people that changed the world.

Spiritual Awakening: Just Jump!!!
Many times we are hesitant in taking action as we allow all of our doubts and fears to creep into our human experience thus blocking us from our spiritual growth. How many times have you wanted to jump but you made an excuse not to and then as you sat in reflection wondered what might have been or what could have been. When you make taking action part of your spiritual development ritual and you simply jump and allow things to fall as they may you will find that you evolve personally, professionally, and spiritually. It is often said that when one door closes another opens. When that one door closes simply find another door to open and create your own opportunity to embrace your spiritual awakening and manifest the life that you desire. Sometime it is when you go your own way and jump that better things happen thus bringing more peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life.
Along our spiritual path we will encounter many people and they all serve some type of purpose for us. In many cases in our life we must simply go our own way until we find those who will lift us, support us, and most importantly respect us. I have recently come to understand that is it better to go where you are celebrated rather than stay somewhere where you are simply tolerated. I have also learned that not everyone will be as eager to jump on you path and that it is not your job to drag them kicking and screaming onto your path but to simply shine your light and to illuminate the world and when they are ready they will come onto your path. As you walk your path you will find doubters and haters that simply have not tapped into the greatness that lies within them and are a bit jealous because you are doing things that they always wanted to do but haven’t. It is believed that the richest place on earth is a cemetery because many valuable assets that were not used by people when they were alive because they bough into the negativity of people telling them they can’t do something. Never allow the thoughts of others to stop you from stepping into your power and assuming the greatness and prosperity that is your birthright. In the past I would doubt my ability and not go to auditions for public announcer positions now I take the opportunity and make videos while i am at the audition and I allow things to flow as they may. In jumping I have met with much success as I have landed paying gigs with The Legends Football League, The Miami Fury, The South Florida Gold, The Sean Taylor Classic, and other teams and events. I have realized that when you decide to face everything and rise that you create more and more opportunities. When you decide to be a jumper and reach higher you will find that many good things come your way. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Rising Above!!!
Today (3/25/2016) is Good Friday, marking the day that JESUS was taken to Calvary and was nailed to the cross and his blood flowed down Calvary washing away the sins of man. On Sunday (3/27/2016) many will celebrate Easter marking Jesus’s rise from the grave. As I think about this holiday and the spiritual awakening process I am receiving the same message over and over and that is RISE ABOVE. I ask rise above what and I am told rise above all that doesn’t help others. The big question is how do we rise above?
One of the ways to rise above is to pray and to hear the messages from above and then to take positive action on those messages. It is said that when 2 or more are gathered in his name that GOD is present so find a few people that you can gather with and say a prayer for hope and healing for that which is ailing you.Pray that any blockages that are holding you back are removed so you can rise above and positively impact your life and the lives you come in contact. Remember it is when you do for others that you are rewarded. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: The Home Stretch!!!
For years I have watched The Kentucky Derby, The Preakness, and The Belmont Stakes all 3 together known as The Triple Crown in hopes that there would be a triple crown winner as the last triple crown winner was Affirmed in 1978. Affirmed battled Alydar in one of the closest Belmont Stakes in the history of horse racing. I always get excited when I hear the announcer say and down the stretch they come as the horse enter the final stretch of the race knowing that in the homestretch os where many a race is won or lost. As The Kentucky Derby approaches and will take pace on May 2 I find myself thinking about the homestretch in the spiritual awakening process. On May 2 a horse, a jockey, a trainer, and an owner will be forever immortalized in the sports history books. This got me to thinking how will we become immortalized in the spiritual history books as we enter our very own homestretch in discovering who we are and what we are meant to be. A racehorse is bred to race and to give pleasure to the fans and then when their career is over they are put out to breed and through breeding they pass on their lineage and their legacy for more horses to race and for more fans to enjoy. This lead me to ponder what happens when we reach the home stretch of any project or development in our personal or professional life how will we create a legacy and pass the legacy on? One way to do this is to become spiritually aware and awake and to take action to develop our spirituality and share ourselves with the world.
Many times it is not how you start but how you finish that matters. There have been many a horse who started in the back of the pack but stayed on their path and were consistent and by the time they took the final turn and entered the homestretch they were in a position to win and managed to surge ahead of every other horse and win. Think of how many times things may have not started off right for you but because of your strength and your determination along with your faith you were able to stay on course make an adjustment and be a winner in the end.
In 2013 Orb was a longshot and sat in 17th place but rallied to win The Kentucky Derby. The spiritual lesson I learned that day was that it is not where you start that really matters it is that you start and that you give it your best in all that you do and finish what you started. Orb would finish 4th in The Preakness and 3rd in The Belmont and then be retired to Stud. Orb’s legacy now is in the horses that he sires. In the spiritual awakening process it is important to understand what your legacy will be and how people will speak about your home s retch run. How will you be remembered? ORB will forever be remembered as a Kentucky Derby Winner. In the spiritual development process it is important to be aware and awake of the positive impact you are making and how your coming alive is having a positive impact on the community where you live, work, and play.

Spiritual Awakening: Running Numbers!!!
Have you ever noticed the importance numbers play in our life? I have come to understand the reasons why I have chosen certain numbers in my life and after seeking their meanings have become more aware of the importance of these choices in the spiritual awakening process.
As we seek the answers we find that the numbers will tell us so much as to who we are and why we make the decisions that we make. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: In Your Face!!!
I can not tell you how many times along my spiritual awakening journey that I wanted to look at someone who was being negative or who responded to me in a negative way and say in your face. Understanding that people will not always resonate with me or do things the way I would do them has allowed me to not be confrontational and to continue in a positive direction of my goals and objectives in my personal and professional life.
If you are an avid reader of this blog you know my passion for raising funds for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of West Boca Raton. While promoting and seeking donations recently I posted in a Jaycees Group and one of their members replied with this to my request.
Spiritual Awakening: Coming Together!!!
In the final scene from the movie, Grease, everyone came together to celebrate the milestone of turning the page and going froward with their personal and professional lives. For many of us it is a spiritual awakening when we make the decision to come together fort he common good of all people. In Grease Danny Zucko (John Travolta) and Sandy (Oliva Newton John) made changes and sacrifices finding common ground so that they could have a caring and loving relationship. If only life was like the movies where at the end most everyone comes together and the world is better for them setting aside their differences and making positive changes.
In coming together one must embrace their dreams even if to others they seem impossible. To those that say it is impossible explain to them that the word itself says I am possible. Then find people who share in your dream and your vision and have them come together. Think of yourself as the lone snowflake in a storm along you may have some power but gathered with other snowflakes you are the most powerful. You can also look at the power that you have and that others have and harness it to come together for the greater good of humanity. It is when we step into our power and shine our light that we give others permission to step into their power and shine their light thus the entire world is illuminated. Gather the dreamers and help them to turn their dreams into reality and you will see how powerful you truly are. Read More→
One of my favorite scenes from The Karate Kid is when Miyagi is showing Daniel the importance of his training and the results he is achieving.
The scene shows us the importance of taking action and applying what we have learned as we awaken spiritually and grow personally and professionally. In life what we do may hold some secret lessons like the tasks Daniel learned and was apply to apply to his training and thus find success in the end.
In taking action and understanding that you are the best around you will begin to enhance the spiritual awakening process and as a result make a mind, body, soul connection that will propel to greatness. It is when you stand in your power and embrace your greatness that you are able to achieve the oneness consciousness that will guide you to the prosperity that is your birthright. There will be challenges and obstacles along the way however when these obstacles are faced and conquered we grow in spirit. In growing in spirit we are able to shine our light for others to see and thus we become physically, mentally, and emotionally stronger. When we are focused and moving forward in purpose we find success.
When we move forward with love in our heart nothing can stop us. When our focus is on being loving and caring in all we do we will begin to attract all that is necessary to come from the heart and achieve greatness.
As we continue to focus on being of service and value and doing everything we do from a position of love we begin to awaken spiritually more and more thus becoming more and more open to receive the gifts that GOD and The Universal Powers have in store for us. GOD delivers to those who show love and gratitude and help others to excel. When we stay focused good things begin to happen for us.
Spiritual Awakening: Staying Focused To Receive!!!
As I sat down to write this entry today I prayed to GOD and asked for the right content that will empower and inspire the reader to stay focused and open the channels to receive. After I began to write GOD and The Universal Powers delivered this Mother Teresa Poem. In being focused on receiving you begin to find ways to be more and more open thus creating a positive flow and positive vibrations that will attract the right people to us. The best way to stay open to receive is to become a cheerful giver.
In giving and focusing your attention on GOD and being a cheerful giver you will receive a bountiful harvest in your life as you continue on your path toward spiritual enlightenment. When we focus on being righteous we will never be forsaken. Yesterday I ran out of gas outside of a home and the owner who I found out was named Carlos checked out my car gave me a 1/2 gallon of gas and sent me on my way. Before leaving I offered him $2 which he turned down so I put it in my pocket. I went and got gas and went about my business for the night. Upon arriving home I put the $2 into my Relay For Life Canister and thanked GOD for watching over me. Today as I was at Starbucks a pastor that I knew and I had a great discussion and he put $10 in The Relay For Life Canister. These encounters have taught me to stay focused and let GOD divinely guide me as he will put me in the places that I need to be in.

Spiritual Awakening: A Labor Of Love!!!
As today marks Labor Day and many are celebrating with picnics and barbecues I began to think how great it would be to have every one reading this blog entry would do a labor of love and share their spiritual awakening and how since the awakening their life has changed. I encourage everyone to be an action taker and do a labor of love today. It can be anything from writing a check to The American Cancer Society and sending it to 9141 Sunrise Lakes Boulevard #102, Sunrise, FL 33322 to buying supplies for a local animal shelter to collecting pull tabs and giving them to Ronald McDonald House or simple helping the next person in line buy buying them an iced tea. One of the anthems that I have adopted during my spiritual awakening process is the concept of being of service and value.In committing to be of service and value and doing things in a loving and caring manner I have found that my personal and professional life has improved. In understanding that we are all called to do a labor of love we expand our own circle of love and thus we create a more loving, caring, and kinder world. In doing these labors of love we become the change we want to see in the world. We begin to come alive as we serve our community and interact with the people we come in contact with. In doing these labors of love we detach from the outcome and just let things play out thus becoming more spiritually awakened. It is the spiritual awakening process that we become more in tune with our divinity and thus are able to put positive energy into all of our labors of love and thus not only enhance our personal and professional lives but also to improve the lives of those we come in contact with.
Mary gave us a labor of love when she delivered Jesus into our world. Jesus would commit many labors of love the greatest of which was dying on the cross to take away our sins and redeem us. In redemption Jesus gave us the responsibility of living a life of righteousness by doing labors of love. Read More→
