Spiritual Awakening: Focus On The Joy!!!

Image result for make a joyful noise unto the lord imagesAs I left the bank today(12/8/2017) I realized just how much joy I have in my life and how important it is to focus on the joy. I walked to my car thanking GOD for allowing me the opportunity to use my talents for good and as a result having money to take care of the necessities in life. As I got into my car I realized a shift in my being. It was at that moment that I reminded myself to bring joy to everything I do. In becoming an action taker driven with a purpose to be joyful while being of service and value to others I have found that I am more aware and awake spiritually. I still have some challenging moments however when those moments arise I do my best to be joyful. In reflecting back on 2017 and preparing fr 2018 I am reminded to focus on the joy that there is the world and to celebrate the small victories thus attracting peace, love, joy, and prosperity into my life.
In focusing on joy we open up many channels to receive as the universe return what it is given.  If we go about each moment with a goal to be joyful we will receive joy in return. It is when you answer your calling in a joyful manner that you bring more joy into your life. I have been sending out direct messages to people to take a moment and visit http://main.acsevents.org/goto/jdogg19 to make a donation to help plant the seeds of hope and healing for those touched by cancer. In the past I would get upset by the amount of people who weren’t responding but today I decided to be grateful and joyful for those that were donating. As I focused on the joy that their donation brings to those touched by cancer I realized that my entire attitude changed. I went from anger to happiness in a matter of moments. It was when we change our focus that our entire perspective changes. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: You Can’t Handle The Truth!!!

Image result for and the truth shall set you free bible verseAs you awaken more and more spiritually you gain an awareness of your own truth. The draw back to becoming more and more aware and awake is that you begin to encounter people who can not handle the truth. As an action taker you will find it easier to speak your truth while interacting with others. In all cases it is important to be your authentic self as you continue on your spiritual journey toward enlightenment. Too many times we allow our fear to interfere with speaking our truth thus we miss out on opportunities to create the life that we want. Sometimes you just have to tell people how you truly feel and then let things work out as GOD has meant them to work out.

Image result for Wilson FootballThe other day I wrote a direct message to Wilson Football requesting a Crucial Catch Football, A Salute The Troops Football, and a Superbowl Football to use in a fundraising endeavor only to be told they can’t donate the 3 footballs. I wrote back and basically told them they had to kidding me as they could send 3 footballs that probably cost them less than $100 to manufacturer. I explained tot hem the fact that I have over 1900 Twitter Followers and over 2900 friend on Facebook not to mention the over 1500 people following me on Instagram. I spoke my truth letting them know that I hoped they would reconsider their decision. I haven’t heard back from them as I believe they couldn’t handle the truth.  In speaking my truth I was able to explain just how important it was for Wilson Football to support my effort to be of service and value to others. Think about it this way the more people you help the more business you receive for you never know who can help you to build your brand and increase your revenue. So the next time you are approached about helping some one think about what the truth is and the truth is that a simple act of kindness will come back to you.

Image result for Share A Coke College bottlesAbout a month ago I reached out to shareacoke.com to have them donate 6 bottles and few of their polar bears for a fundraiser I was doing to help those touched by cancer and again I was told oh we are not in a position to do that. I wrote back asking how a multi-national company with over a billion dollars in sales each quarter can’t see its way clear to donating 6 commemorative bottles and 3 polar bears which probably cost them less than $75. I explained my reach and how I could be of service and value to them. I haven’t heard back since figuring they couldn’t handle the truth.  I find it interesting that many people do not see the value of supporting others and will become excuse makers instead of action takers. Look at how you are reacting to people seeking support and then find the truth as to why you may be struggling in your personal, professional, and personal life. I chose to share the two experiences where I was turned down because the truth of the matter is that not everyone is going to resonate with your cause regardless and to how noble it is. You are going to encounter a few setbacks along your spiritual journey however with a few setbacks come set ups for exceeding your goals and objectives.

Image result for nfl crucial catchIn not allowing the no from Coca Cola and Wilson to get me down I took a deep breath and I called The NFL about supporting The POINTS FOR THE CURE Fundraiser that I was hosting and guess what they sent me cleats, lanyards, balloons, and pins to use in the fundraising efforts and may send more items in the future. I realized that the truth of the matter is that some will, some won’t, some waiting, so what, next. As you walk in your truth you will find that there are those who will help you and those who will not. I have come to realize that the truth is that not everyone will understand your level of commitment so focus on those who are supporting you and lifting you and let the others go and pound sand.

Image result for nfl crucial catchAs you journey along your spiritual path and make a statement by walking in your truth remember that there are going to be those who can not handle the truth as they are not ready to take a look deep inside as to why they are making the decisions that they are making. Many can not handle the truth and  are not used to being called out so when you call them out with a passionate and cognitive reason they can not handle it and do not know how to respond. The key is to continue to walk in your truth and follow your passion thus attracting peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. When you are armed with the truth you will manifest the life that you desire. When you speak your truth you will begin to reap great rewards as you begin to realize that passion + action = success. In many cases it is just a simple matter of walking in your truth and allowing your actions to show the world how you are being of service.

Spiritual Awakening: Calmness Has Its Rewards!

Image result for Stay CalmImage result for Starbucks

Through out the spiritual awakening process I have come to understand that in the face of a challenge where your human existence seems to want to take over your spiritual existence you must take a deep breath and remain calm. In staying calm in the heat of a adverse moment will lead to unexpected rewards. Today (8/4/2017) I stopped by Starbucks after doing some banking. I went to recharge my card to be told it was on hold. Instead of getting mad I calmly called the 1-800 number. I waited on hold for a while and finally after what seemed an eternity I spoke to a customer service representative. We had a pleasant exchange and at the end she informed that she was adding $10 to my card because I was inconvenienced. In taking action in a calm manner I was rewarded. As we continue along our path toward spiritual enlightenment it is important to remember that when you are calm the vibration you give off will be met with calmness and you will be rewarded. In remaining calm and staying positive you put out a vibration to the universe showing that you have evolved as a spiritual being and you are ready to receive the resources desired to create the life that you want.

Image result for calm cool collected quotesIn every situation you encounter it is important to stay calm, cool, and collected. Self-control is one of the fruits of spirit that allows us to progress in a positive manner in our personal, professional, and spiritual life. It is imperative to remember that the only person you can change is you. getting heated and angry does not serve you as it is like wrestling a pig in the mud you both get dirty but the pig enjoys it. The best way to solve a problem is to simply take a deep breath and remain calm for getting angry only escalates the problem and many times makes the situation worse. Today at the bank a woman was in the non-customer line and she was a customer she was taken before a few people and one guy remarked I guess the rest of us are invisible. I simply made a joke and said oh English and Reading Classes start Monday followed by I am kidding. In doing this it seemed to ease the tension and everyone relaxed a little bit understanding that waiting is part of the process. have learned that having a sense of humor and being comfortable with who I am goes a long way in easing the most tense situations.  I understand there will be times when your patience is tried because the people you are dealing with may not be as spiritually evolved as you are so when this happens you must simply let go and Let GOD. I do my best to remember that the way things are and the way things should be are two different things. In staying calm I have been rewarded. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: The Eyes Of Your Heart!!!

In 2003 the movie Radio came out and it showed what happens when you open up your heart to be a lifter and look beyond your limitations. It showed how powerful one act of kindness can be. It is through the spiritual awakening process that you gain the ability to tap into your inner divinity and start to embrace the fact that you are a divine child of GOD. As you continue to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually you will find yourself more open to showing love and thus love will be returned to you. In taking action to be a lifter you will be lifted. When you have  clear eyes and an open heart you can not lose. Life will throw some obstacles your way because many will not understand you. When those obstacles arise remember that if GOD brought you to it GOD will bring you through it.
As you start to look into your heart ask yourself how far would you go to be of service and value to others. Would you give up something you love to help lift someone else? In your spiritual journey you will be asked to let go of that which no longer serves you in your quest to become a fully enlightened being. In sacrificing for the greater good and releasing that which no longer serves us we are able to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives.

James Robert “Radio” Kennedy was inducted into The Hanna High School Hall Of Fame. His story shows us just how important it is to see people as whole regardless of their lot in life. It teaches us the importance of kindness and compassion. It shows us the importance of not passing judgement and getting to know the entire story before making assumptions. It exhibits the importance of living a purpose driven life and the importance of finding our path.  It is when we give of ourselves and show others that service to humanity is the best work of life that we are rewarded. Sometimes it is as easy as just getting to know someone and finding a way to lift them up. How will you become more and more aware and awake to lift others while you yourself are lifted?

Spiritual Awakening: Inspiration To Open The Eyes To Your Heart

When you show kindness you open up your heart very deep so that it can receive love and kindness. It is when you pay it forward that you grow personally, professionally, and spirituality. It is time to share random acts of kindness so as to create positivism everywhere you go. When you are kind and compassionate you will receive kindness and compassion in return. The lord loves a cheerful giver so open up the eyes to your heart and let GOD fill it with bliss that will lead to abundance. In helping others to get what they want we get what we want.  As you continue on your spiritual journey seek ways to show love and compassion and you will begin to experience a sense of happiness that money can not buy.  As you go about your daily tasks may you see clearly into your heart and tap into your divine guidance system to become a person of action for the great good of the world.  May you find your calling and follow your spiritual path to shine your light bright and illuminate the world. Namaste!!!

 

 

Spiritual Awakening: Explode Into Greatness!

Today (7/4/2017) many will gather at events through out the United States to celebrate the greatness that are the opportunities in America. It is time for you to explode into greatness just like the spectacle that is a fireworks show. You have the chance to tap into your inner divinity and be guided by GOD to explode into greatness which is your birthright. You were not born to be ordinary you were born to be exceptional. It is when you begin to find your purpose and embrace it that you will find yourself exploding into greatness. It is up to you to ignite the spark that will passionately drive you become more aware and awake by taking action while you are experiencing a spiritual awakening.

If you want to explode into greatness you mus have a heart that is on fire fro what the mind can conceive and the heart can believe you can achieve. As you fill your heart with a burning passion and then taking action you will find success. I recently came into 19 boxes of assorted books as a result of  my cousin passing away a few weeks ago. I could have worried about where I am going to store all these different books and what I am going to do with them but instead I sat in meditation and a vision came to me. That vision was do a Books For The Cure Fundraiser benefiting The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise and donate 50% of all sales to The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise. Well today I received payment for some of The Tarot Books someone purchased and $5 is being donated to The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise. It was because I was will to explode into greatness by listening to the messages being sent to me that I am able to help plant the seeds of hope and healing for those touched by cancer. In having a burning heart you are able to take action and follow your passion and thus be met with success. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Spark It Up And Pass It Along!!!

It is when we spark up our creativity and take action that we enhance the spiritual awakening process. On of my favorite exhibits at EPCOT is Journey Into Imagination as it reminds us just how powerful we are and how important it is to collaborate with others to bring our visions to life. It taking action on a vision that you conceive in your mind and believe in your heart you will manifest what you are seeking. In imagining and then bringing that idea to life you also come alive and find that you are expanding in your personal, professional, and spiritual life. How many times have you been told by others that it is impossible or your idea is crazy and you didn’t pursue your idea only to see someone else implement it and have success? How many times have you let negative self talk sabotage you and stop you from taking action? There will always be doubters, naysayers, and haters but do not allow them to rent space in your head. Through the spiritual awakening process I have learned there are no bad ideas and that you never know until you take action. In taking action and putting your idea put there you will see what is working and what needs improvement. In using your imagination and making sure you write things down as they come to you it will allow you to take action when ready. I recommend that you get a legal pad and  carry it with you and keep it with in arms length at all times so you can record your ideas and then take action to bring them to life. I have a friend who carries a small tape recorder with him every where he goes and when he has an idea he speaks it into the tape recorder and then when he has 15 minutes he listens to the playback and thus is able to begin the process of taking action on the idea.  Simply imagine and then take action to bring the vision to life.

Imagine if everyone began to subscribe to the belief that the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations what a world we would have. If we simply began to understand that we are all divine children of GOD and that GOD has great plans for us we would become more aware and awake thus allowing us to make a mind, body, soul connection which would lead us to manifesting the life we desire. Remember that you are where you are today in the place that GOD has planned you to be and everything is the way it is supposed to be at this time. It is when you can visualize and act as if that you will begin to understand more clearly your spiritual awakening. Read More→
