Spiritual Awakening: Polish Up Your Rhinestones!!!

Upon learning of Glen Campbell’s passing after battling Alzheimer’s I began to think what legacy will you leave when GOD calls you home? I thought of the importance of polishing up our own rhinestones in the form of the talents that we posses. Each of us has a talent that GOD wants us to use to prosper ourselves and others. As part of the spiritual awakening process we begin to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives as soon as we unleash our talent on the world. It is when we think globally and act locally that we polish up our rhinestones allowing us to shine our light brightly that we illuminate the world. When we become action takers we set in motion resources that propel us closer and closer to becoming an enlightened being.

A rhinestone, paste or diamante is a diamond simulant made from rock crystal, glass or acrylic. Originally, rhinestones were rock crystals gathered from the river Rhine. The availability was greatly increased in the course the 18th century when the Alsatian jeweller Georg Friedrich Strass had the idea to imitate diamonds by coating the lower side of glass with metal powder. Hence, rhinestones are called strass in many European languages. Rhinestones can be used as imitations of diamonds, and some manufacturers even manage to reproduce the glistening effect real diamonds have in the sun. In 1955, the Aurora Borealis, a thin, vacuum-sputtered metallic coating applied to crystal stones to produce an iridescent effect, was introduced by Swarovski. Aurora Borealis tends to reflect whatever color is worn near it, and it is named after the Aurora Borealis atmospheric phenomenon, also known as the “Northern Lights”. Similar treatments are Aqua aura and “Flame aura”. Typically, crystal rhinestones have been used on costumes, apparel and jewelry. Crystal rhinestones are produced mainly in Austria by Swarovski and in the Czech Republic by Preciosa and a few other glassworks in northern Bohemia. In the US, these are sometimes called Austrian Crystal. In the Spanish-speaking world they are called Cristal de Bohemia. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Turning Pages!!!

As you embrace the spiritual awakening process and begin to become an action taker it is important to remember to turn the page. Today (8/2/2017) marks my 52nd year on this earth. As I turn the page of another year lived I look back and take in all the lessons learned along the way. There have been many triumphs and many tragedies in the last year and each one has come with a spiritual lesson that has allowed me to become more aware and awake. Each time I face adversity I am reminded of my anthem, Stay Positive. As I remind myself that even in the darkest of ties there is a light to step into that will guide me in a positive direction of my dreams. It is important to bask in the glow of that light and heed the messages as they will allow all of us on a spiritual path to turn the page and start a new. Each day we are given 1,440 minutes to use to advance our personal, professional, and spiritual life. How we choose to utilize those minutes is up to us. We can get caught up in the arguments and name calling on social media about that which we can not control or we can focus on following our passion by taking action that will lead to success. At the end of the day when that last minute ticks off we are given another 1,440 minutes to use presenting us with opportunities to turn the page. We can not go back to the past and we do not know what the future brings so we must live in the moment cherishing the minutes we have been given and using them in the best interest of being of service and value. There have been many days when I decided to simply rest and do nothing and I know I can not get those days back so I have begun to say to myself in the past and up into now I used to sleep the day away but starting now I will make the most of the minutes turning the page and writing my own story as directed by GOD.
As you allow GOD to write your story and turn the pages you will find yourself attracting more peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your personal, professional, and spiritual life. We have the power to tap into our inner divinity an create the life that we desire. It starts with the idea of turning the pages and letting go and letting GOD. There have been many times that I have lost the connection with GOD and then I took time to get back to being centered, focused, and grounded by remembering that GOD’s plan is far greater than my own.

Spiritual Awakening: Getting Charged Up!!!

Image result for Car batteries As I went to turn on my car yesterday (7/14/2017) it would not turn over.I was very fortunate that I had a charger and I gave it charge and it started. I went to Ocello’s Automotive Center and it turned out I needed a new battery.  I left my car and this gave me time to truly embrace the spiritual awakening process as I started to think just like a car needs good balanced energy to run efficient as humans we need good balanced energy to function so that we can embrace the fact that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. In the past I would have gotten mad and angry that I had to spend my hard earned money in this manner but yesterday I was grateful that I had the money to pay for the services needed for my car and that I was in a good position to continue to be an action taker. My car is now running properly and serving as a tool to continue on my mission to be of service and value to others.
As I now have my car in good operational condition I realize that nothing can break my stride unless I allow it to. I have come to understand that if GOD brings me to it GOD will bring me through it. I could have fretted about a $190 expense and been all upset instead I shift my emotions and realized that the $190 was an investment into what GOD has planned for me. In understanding that we are divine children of GOD and that GOD wants us to prosper I have been able to keep my stride moving forward in a position direction to exceeding my goals. Like my car being fully charged I have become charged up understanding that there comes a time to let go and let GOD. I have also come to understand through the spiritual awakening process that we need to change the things we can accept the things we can’t and have the wisdom to know the difference. As we move along on our spiritual journey moving toward enlightenment it is important to know that sometime we simply need time to become recharged with the fruits of spirit.

Image result for the fruits of the spirit When we are fully charged and driven by GOD all these fruits of spirit function within us so that we can be of service and value to others. We have a power inside of us that we can tap into that allows us to become charged up so that we can come alive and positively impact communities where we live, work and play. In getting charged up and following our passion by taking action we are able to find success in the form of attracting peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives. In being charged up we are in a position to spread positivism everywhere we go. In being charged up it is important to detach from outcomes and simply allow things to flow as GOD has planned. Remember that everything is in the order that GOD has intended for you.  It is up to you to check your charge and find ways to stay fully charged so as to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

Spiritual Awakening: The Freedom Path!!!

Over the last few weeks a common theme continued to fill my daily experiences with the common thread of freedom. In thinking of breaking free by letting go and letting GOD I quickly realized that if I am to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually I must become an action taker. I sat in meditation and received a message that I was not the only one who was longing to break free and become more and more spiritually aware and awake. As certain events unfolded in the realm that we call human existence I realized that in order to be on a freedom path I must break the chains and remove blockages by shifting thoughts that were limiting me to thoughts that are limitless. It was time to look at how I can achieve things and to take action to move forward in a positive direction of my dreams. It was time to take on new opportunities and challenges by taping into my inner divinity and simply making a mind, body, soul connection.It was time to truly internalize the belief that what the mind can conceive, the heart can believe, and you can achieve. It was time to really study the four agreements and come into alignment spiritually, mentally, and physically. It was time to detach from outcomes and simply give 100% in all I did by following my passion and taking action. In making adjustments and getting back to my spiritual base I was able to reawaken spiritually and thus be rewarded for my actions by taking solace in the fct that I am a divine child of GOD and GOD has great plans for me. I have also learned to simply stand in your truth and your truth will set you free.
It is said the two greatest days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why. When you discover your purpose you are able to move along the freedom path thus awakening spiritually so that you can continue to be of service and value to others. In getting on the freedom path we begin to see why we are here and how much of an impact we are making. Sometimes it is simply a matter of letting go and facing everything and rising. As you break free and understand that you have a purpose in this human existence you will begin to attract the  resources necessary to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. If each day you do something to fulfill your purpose you will find that bliss and abundance will enter your life. It is when you remove the shackles you begin to feel free. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Put It All On The Line!!!

The day you awaken spiritually and commit fully to taking action to improve your personal, professional, and spiritual life by putting it all on the line is the day that you see that you can reach heights that you never thought imaginable. When you decide to reach down deep inside and tap into your inner divinity you will find that things in your life work out. As you reach into your heart you will find the power in your dream.
In laying it all on the line and believing in the power of the dream you will begin to find yourself attracting more peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. It is said that what the mind can conceive and the heart can believe you can achieve. I have experienced this first hand on many occasions as I have reached out to sports teams to be there Public Address Announcer believing that I was good enough to be in the broadcast booth. As a result I have secured many announcing gigs. If you can dream it you can be it.
If you truly want to lay it on the line you must be motivated, inspired, and empowered willing to let go and let GOD. In life we will face many challenges but when we lay it on the line by understanding that if GOD brought us to it GOD will bring us through it we will achieve the greatness that is our birthright. What stops many people from laying it on the line is the thought created by fear that asks what if it doesn’t work. How about you change that to what happens if it does work. Many times we don’t lay it on the line because of past experiences that have occurred and the blockages that have been created as a result. One thing that is necessary to lay it on the line and become an action taker is to clear the blockages that have created emotional baggage that is weighing us down. When you begin to remove the thoughts and things that are stopping you from laying it on the line you can begin to move forward in a positive direction of your dreams. Read More→
