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: 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: Turning It Around!!!

As an action taker who finds myself on the go most of the time I have come to realize that of I am to be spiritually awake I must slow down so that I can turn things around. Such was the case today when I inquired as to my status as a n announcer for a team that I have worked with for 4 years. I was told that they weren’t going to have a DJ or announcer for their last 2 games. I was a bit disappointed as that took $200 out of my pocket as I was being paid $100 per game and  now I have to find a way to make that up. This is what happens when you are a free lancer in the broadcasting world. As I reflected I turned to GOD and he sent me this song by The Byrds. It was at that time that I realized everything happens for a reason. This was GOD’s Way of telling me to not sell myself short and to find other opportunities where my talents would be awarded and respected.  It was at that moment when another awakening occurred and I sent out text message to a few people who were interested in my services and I landed a few paying gigs.
When you decide to find the bright side in what is happening you begin to turn thing around and you win in the end.  There is an adage that says when one door is closed another will open. This is so true and plays out many times in the spiritual awakening process. Sometimes your human feelings and ego get in the way because you allow yourself to feel under appreciated or disrespected and you stay in the situation because you are fearful of what might happen if you walk away. It is when you walk away from a situation that no longer serves you that you win in the end.   Read More→

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.

Angel Dreams Oracle Cards by Doreen VirtueOracle cards by Sonia Choquette - Angelic Oracle Cards & Oracle Cards ... 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.

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.

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→
