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: The Crazy Mixed Up World!
My world got a bit crazy and mixed up today. The day was going great and I was following my passion to help those touched by cancer when in a blink of an eye things got crazy outside of Starbucks. I had just finished making a call pertaining to my work of me helping to open a new rainbow store and was approached by a young man begging for money. I told him I wouldn’t give him money but I would pray for him and give him a list of place where he could go to find work. He went off an started to get belligerent and my human side got in the way as fear overtook me I pushed him and started to walk back into Starbucks. He came at me and that is when two Starbucks employees came out and helped me to get back inside with out further incident. I then took many a deep breath and realized we live in a crazy mixed up world and there are many angry misdirected people around us. I then found some gospel music like this song and started to pray that the young man would get the help he needed to exercise any demons that were stopping him from stepping into his power and evolving in his personal, professional, and spiritual life.
As I reflected on the situation I was reminded that GOD loves a cheerful giver and that when approached the next time I will offer food and a beverage and a chance to fellowship. If this doesn’t work I will walk away and say a prayer for the person who is coming from such a position of lack that they are broken in some way. Unfortunately in our human existence we will encounter a few people who have become so broken that they don’t realize that they are a divine child of GOD and that they have a power and talent inside that once they tap into that inner divinity it will propel them to greatness in their personal, professional, and spiritual life. I have to learn to be more like a peaceful warrior when dealing with the outer influences of this crazy mixed up world. 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: 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: 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: 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: Times They Are A Changing!
As you experience a spiritual awakening you will start to experience changes in your perspective that allows you to vibrate at a higher level thus positively impacting your personal, professional, and spiritual awakening. When you awake in the morning with the attitude that you can be a world changer and then you take action you will see that you can become a world changer. It is said that one snowflake has little impact but get a bunch of them together and watch what happens. Everyday things are changing at a rapid pace and may believe that these are the end days. If they are the end day my suggestion is to become as righteous in the ways you carry yourself by being impeccable with your world, not taking anything personally, not making any judgments, and always doing your best. The times are definitely changing and as a spiritual being it is your responsibility to change with the times and to be driven by your inner divinity. As the times change remember it is not about being right or wrong it is about doing the right thing. As you become more and more aware and awake you will begin to attract abundance into your life that allows you to live a life filled with much peace, love, joy, and prosperity. It is when you begin to adapt and overcome by not compromising your spirituality that you will enhance your personal, professional, and spiritual life.
As the times are changing we must come together as spiritual beings and stand up to injustice. It is when we show others that the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations that we can look beyond political ideologies and start to come together as one. It is when we realize that we are all divine children of GOD with a purpose to be of service and value to one another that we make improvements in our world. It is when we begin to dialogue with one another without judging that we can come to peaceful resolutions that make our communities stronger. Everyday make it a point to go out and meet someone who you do not know and see how you can be of service and value to that person. In some cases people may not be to receptive as interaction with a perceived stranger can be scary and many people are programmed to become defensive. The key is to remember that it is not your job to bring them kicking and screaming onto a path of change but to shine your light so that when they are ready they will follow you as a beacon of hope and healing. I have always believed that some will, some won’t, so what, some waiting, next. Some people will not see the positive messenger that you are because they are still wrapped in their ego thinking that they know it all when in reality we can all learn from someone. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Lift Up Your Voice!!!
It is when we begin to understand that we are all divine children of GOD and that we are more alike than we are different that our personal, professional, and spiritual lives are enhanced. It is when we get back to the basics and leave all the materialistic beliefs at the door that we make our world a better. It is when we commit to changing ourselves by being loving and caring in all that we do that we enhance our life and the lives of those around us. Today we can commit to finding peaceful resolutions to the human issues that are stopping us from achieving spiritual enlightenment. It is through the awakening process that you can answer your calling and become an agent of change.It is by coming alive and standing strong for your community that you can create more peace, love, joy, and prosperity in your life and in the lives of others. Ask yourself how you can be a a persons that unites instead of a person who fights. Ask yourself what you can stand for in a peaceful manner where confrontation is the last resort.
When you wake up and before you you sleep for the evening make sure you give praise to GOD for all that he is providing for you. It is when you lift your voice to GOD and when you become divinely guided that good things begin to happen. Though their may be tough times you can turn things around by praising GOD and standing up for righteousness. Read More→
