Spiritual Awakening: Busting Out OF Black Friday!!!
Did you fall for the hype of Black Friday or were you like the many that have had a spiritual awakening and busted out of Black Friday? I chose to bust out on Black Friday and take massive action and invest in myself by becoming a Rejuvenetics Distributor, my page is at www.rejuvenetics.net/jdogg1 where people can purchase products that will help them to look good, feel good, so they can do good. I decided that being healthy was more important than the 32″ Plasma TV that was on sale. I decided to bust out and learn about the products and spend my money on me as I know an investment in myself is more important than investments in materialistic things. After all the happiness we seek is found inside ourselves. In committing to being healthy and becoming an action taker we begin to get ourselves balanced, centered, and grounded thus allowing us to summon our inner divinity and creating our own happiness. In awakening and busting out on Black Friday I have been able to further my calling and create a positive change in my life and in the lives of others. In making a decision to take massive action I have continued to come alive and serve others while enhancing my community. Imagine being able to show people that service to humanity is the best work of life and showing them how to live a healthy life by educating them with information that traditional doctors don’t tell them.
In busting out on Black Friday and deciding not to focus on the lack mentality that it promotes I have been able to accomplish many of my daily goals. I was able to get centered and grounded, start my new business venture, write my blog entries, send out media releases and further my journey of spiritual awakening. In being spiritually awake and aware we are able to choose to bust out of Black Friday and appreciate the abundance that we all have. In becoming spiritually awake and a ware we begin to understand that we do not have to do what the masses do we can be our own person and follow the messages from GOD. IN busting out of Black Friday we are able to do more to glorify GOD and thus be rewarded. A new car, or anew TV, or material things will not honor or glorify GOD, however being of service to others will. So in busting out of Black Friday we can all become more in tune with our own divinity while recognizing the divinity in others. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Celebrating Thanksgiving Daily!!!
Once one has a spiritual awakening and they begin their path to enlightenment they realize that a great part of becoming an action taker is to assume an attitude of gratitude. In creating a daily ritual of giving thanks one creates a vibration that attract the proper people into their circle of influence thus furthering the spiritual awakening process. In creating a daily anthem of gratitude and using word like thank you the tasks of the day flow easier and your vibrational level increases allowing for healing to occur. Gratitude is like the small stone skipped across the water that creates little ripples that become waves and thus shifts energy into a field of positivity and possibilities. In answering your calling and being grateful for what you do have you will see a major shift or change in your personal and professional life allowing you to come alive and share your divinity with others thus lighting up the entire universe. Thanksgiving may be one day in the calendar year that brings a community together however imagine if you made Thanksgiving a ritual in your everyday life. I am not talking about eating all the fixings that go with the holiday but just taking time to thank GOD for all that he is providing for you. I have come to understand that many times it is our gratitude that determines our altitude. In dealing with all the emotions that come from celebrating Thanksgiving we come to realize that gratitude can be a great tool to helping in furthering our spiritual path and thus creating feelings that attract all that we need to find peace, love, and happiness in our lives.
This year is the second year without my mother, Judith Miller, who GOD called home on July 5, 2012. The tradition in our family was always to get together regardless of where we all were at the time. There were trips to Williamsburg, Virginia and gatherings at my mom’s house in Coral Springs, FL. Mom always went out of her way to make the day special for everyone from her special sweet potato pie for me to the cheese cake for my brothers moms love filled the air. I am grateful everyday for the time GOD gave me with my mother. I take solace in the fact that she is now an angel watching over me and providing positive messages of guidance. Though there are many empty chairs at the table this year I know that all those who GOD called home are looking down on me and guiding me with peace, love, and happiness. I will celebrate everyday for the things I have and show gratitude for all those who have shaped me and molded me. The fact of life is that we should celebrate Thanksgiving daily by showing appreciation for what we have and for what GOD continues to deliver to us and for us. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Time For Gratitude And Gifts!!!
This year Thanksgiving Day and Hanukah happen together which had me thinking about gratitude and gifts. I was thinking how can I be a proactive action taker and make this a time for gratitude and gifts. I came up with the idea to wrap the gifts and insert thank you cards listing the reasons I am thankful for the people receiving the gifts. As that Thursday will be marked by moments dedicated to gratitude and the importance or recognizing and sharing the gifts we have been given. Think about starting the day with a note of gratitude and exchanging the notes as you watch The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, then at half-time of the football game exchange another gratitude note, then after dinner you light The Hanukah Candles and exchange the gifts. As I look back over the last year I realize that I have much to be grateful for like 2 brothers, 1 sister, and a sister in-law who really like me and lift me friends who continue to support me and encourage me, and a dad who has been there to help me work through some issues.
Since awakening to and embracing my spirituality I have learned that gratitude opens up many possibilities and when you express gratitude great things begin to happen. I have begun to thank everyone and wish them GOD Bless You and the results have been amazing. By expressing gratitude and giving gifts you open up a realm of possibilities to be able to receive. Thank you to Coach Shantel Smith who taught me the value of being grateful and encouraged me to keep a gratitude journal. Since keeping the journal I have found that the day I write what I am grateful for are some of the most productive days that I have. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Changing The Oil!!!
In order for your care to run properly you need to change the oil. In order for your infusion lamp to work you have to change the oil. If you are to maximize the spiritual awakening you must change your oil. The oil change is in the form of changing the way you do things and the way you react to things. In taking action to change your oil you will see a vast difference in your performance as you make the mind, body, and soul connection. As you look at the oil that is creating negative energy and you change it with oil to create positive energy you will see a major shift in how things are occurring in your life. You can do a daily oil change in your life by looking at what created positive results and adding more oil to you while looking at what created negative results and draining it and replacing it with fresh oil. The more positive viscosity you can generate in your life the better. You change your oil in your car every 3,000 miles and what happens if you wait to long to change the oil your car becomes sluggish and doesn’t perform to its peak capacity the same is true with your mind, body, and soul thus you must be able to change your oil on a regular basis.
Spiritual Awakening: Ways To Change Your Oil!!!
The caterpillar morphs into a butterfly by changing its internal oil. The laws of nature take over and allows for this transformation to take place. In allowing for the change to take place the butterfly lives and gives life to other creatures by pollinating different flowers. One way to change your oil is to become a germinator and spread your positive pollen to others. When you begin to change those who you surround yourself with you begin to change your oil and find a mix that will lift you up and help you to fully experience your spiritual awakening. In making the transformation you will begin to experience more joy and fulfillment in your personal and professional life. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Miami Dolphins Need A Dose Of Spirituality!!!
Since moving to South Florida in 1972 and having Earl Moral as my youth optimist football coach I have been a fan of The Miami Dolphins. In a brutal sport like football it is very difficult to carry your spirituality onto the field of play. The events of the recent week between Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito has brought to light for all players to awaken spiritually. When a player has a spiritual awakening they begin to realize that they are connected to the team and thus they have a responsibility to recognize the divine in each other despite the fact that they play a violent game where the objective is to knock your opponent off the ball and score or to stop your opponent from scoring. Today a dose of spirituality is needed for the Miami Dolphins so they can regroup and come together as a cohesive unit and put a winning effort forward.
Right now The Dolphins are far away from the glory days that had them winning Super Bowls and consistently in the playoffs. The teams of the 70′s and early 80′s had what is called chemistry. I like to call it a spiritual connection where they understand that everyone was divinely connected and when they worked in unison and came together as one they won. There was something special about the teams of Griese, Czonka, Warfield, Morris, Kick, Scott, Anderson, and Bonocotti. Those teams seemed to respect each other and knew that they were all part of something bigger than football. Today’s players seem to care only about themselves as illustrated by the recent incident between Incognito and Martin. Many have said but that is the culture of The NFL. I say it is time to change this culture as it is leading to many issues and make players understand that their actions are now magnified in the press and that it is time to make a mind, body, soul connection and start to lift each other up to excel as a team. An awakening is definitely in order as these players have been given a calling that is much larger than football. Read More→
Today would have been my mother’s 74th birthday. My mom, Judith Miller, was a strong woman who for 3 1/2 years battled non-operable metastatic lung cancer and on July 5, 2013 due to complications from a massive heart attack was called home to GOD. As followers of this blog and those who know me know that my mom and I were very close. I am honoring her memory by creating a legacy of hope for those affected by cancer by participating in The American Cancer Society Relay For Life and have set up a website at http://main.acsevents.org/goto/jdogg1 where people can make donations or you can click on the donate page here.
During one of our walks with her dog, Charlie, we began to talk about Inner Strength. My mom said to me “Jonathan it is all about your BS (belief system) if you don’t believe in yourself none will believe in you.” I thought about this as we walked and as we discussed what it takes to truly find your inner strength I realized that part od the spiritual awakening process is to peel back the onion and discover how strong you truly are. We returned to her house and we sat out on the patio for a bit and we discussed life in general. I asked her “Mom how do you do it, you have faced adversity and you continue to overcome.” Her answer was “Jonathan I had to be strong for you kids and by being strong for you I became stronger.” I guess this is where my ability to be a lifter of others comes from as my mom was a lifter and an encourager. My mom was the first to mention meditation to me. She was the one to gift me Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements. I credit my mom who is now my angel in heaven for putting me on a spiritual path and for helping me to find an inner strength. It is in finding our inner strength that we gain the courage to take action, adopt anthems, and experience a spiritual awakening that enhances our personal and professional lives. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Living In The Moment!!!
As I searched deep inside myself today to find the words to share with you that would empower your and inspire to take action the message I received was to live in the moment. In the spirit of living in the moment and being spirituality awake I searched for a song that would fit this entry. I found Beckah Shae’s Here In This Moment. As I listened I began to think how many times do we miss out on happy moments because we are projecting and thinking how things should be. I have learned over time the way things are and the way we think things should be are very different. In having a spiritual awakening you begin to experience life as it is meant to unfold and that there are things you can control and things you can not.
In choosing to live in the moment you detach yourself from past experiences and you also reduce the stress associated with worrying about future events. In detaching from the past and the future and living in the moment you will find that things tend to flow and you achieve what you set out to do in a peaceful and joyful manner. If you release the could haves, the should haves, and the would haves and live in the moment you begin to find an inner solace in knowing everything is in divine order the way it was meant to be right now. In deciding to live in the moment and go about each moment with a sense of gratitude you will find that you create the life you desire. In healing and releasing the past you open up the passages necessary to move forward in the positive direction of your dreams. In taking the future out of the equation and living for the now you will see how things flow and you will begin to enjoy the abundance that the universe has to offer. I look at those who I believe to be successful and they all share something in common. They all live in the moment and come from a position of gratitude. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: A New Attitude!!!
Patti LaBelle’s song New Attitude was the inspiration for today’s blog entry along with some of the actions of people today. I have assumed an attitude of it’s okay we can reschedule or I understand only to be taken advantage of and thus I have decided it is time to assume a new attitude and to step into my power and further my spiritual awakening. The lesson I have learned is to explain to people that when you book time to come into the www.wrpbitvstudio.com you are making a commitment and based on that commitment you are affecting people’s lives. For so long I have allowed people to reschedule or cancel, well that all stops today as what I offer is of value and if people don’t respect that then they do not get a second chance. I made time for you, booked people to film the interview, and turned down others who requested to be interviewed and what I offer has a great value. It comes down to this you are either serious about delivering your message or you are not. You are either an action taker or you are not. I too have been guilty of cancelling or rescheduling because I believed that being footloose and fancy free was a way for me, now if I don’t want to meet with someone I tell them straight out I do not want to meet with you and thus they do not waste their time or mine. I have learned the same thing with my radio show, when I book a guest and they are confirmed and do not call in guess what they don’t get invited back. The key is now to have an attitude that I deserve respect and what I offer is of great value and service to others.
In meditation I had a spiritual awakening and I share it with you so you will learn from the pain and suffering that I have experienced first hand. The message was JDOGG be kind but be careful. This is my message to you, be kind but not to kind and be careful of who you are aligning yourself with. If you do not value yourself no one else will value you. This might mean finding and assuming a new attitude. Some may not understand your change and your answering your calling as you come alive and awaken spiritually to understand that your time is valuable, your services have value, and you deserve to be respected. This might mean letting those so called friends in your circle know that you are no longer available to things for free and that everything you do has a value. So many of us on a spiritual path to enlightenment allow ourselves to be taken advantage because of our genuine authentic desire to be of service and value as a result what occurs we get burned because we fear hurting people’s feelings or we are worried about being liked and what people will think. It is time to have a new attitude and value yourself and eliminate those that do not value you and tell them to GO MILK THE GOAT!!!!! This is a term I learned in the Philippines while serving as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer, it basically was their way of telling you to screw off. This may be a harsh attitude but sometimes in order to move forward we need to change our attitude. In many cases changing who we work with and who we surround ourselves with allows us the opportunity to assume a new attitude and thus grow personally, spiritually, and professionally. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Unleashing Your Inner Don Quixote!!!
One of my favorite Operas/musicals is Man Of La Mancha. The character, Don Quixote, was fighting windmills. The windmills represented the inner demons that he was facing. As I listened to the music and began to understand the message being deliver I discovered just like Don Quixote many of us are experiencing a spiritual awakening. We are waking up and becoming aware that we have greatness inside of us and that our light is meant to shine bright and thus we are becoming action takers. We are beginning to adopt anthems and thus unleashing our inner Don Quixote and showing others that they can step into their greatness and become who they desire to be. Don Quixote was doubted by many, chastised by others, however he stuck to his mission and taught us about pursuing dreams and being a leader in our personal and professional lives. In awakening we unleash that inner Don Quixote and we leave all the doubters and naysayers behind as we pursue the purpose that we have discovered. It is when we fully commit to our quest that we begin to understand our calling and thus enhance our personal and professional lives while being of service and value to others. A change occurs when you come alive and embrace the spiritual awakening that you are experiencing. There will be battles that are won and battles that are lost and each one will teach us valuable lessons along our path.
Don Quixote had his loyal servant Sancho to encourage him and move him in the direction of his dreams. Who do you have in your circle that is lifting you? How are you being a lifter? A strong belief in your self and others will propel you positively along your spiritual path towards enlightenment thus allowing you to experience the joy that comes from being surrounded by encouragers and lifters while also becoming a lifter.
Many will doubt your dreams and do what they can to discourage you. My advice is do not listen to them and unleash your inner Don Quixote and pursue the dream. To pursue your dream takes courage. There are many stories about those who did not let the naysayers win and pursued their dreams and as a result have found joy, an inner peace, and abundance. Some will say oh they were lucky, others will say oh that can never be me, while others will say if they can do it I can do it. The journey starts when you are committed to following your dream. It is when you write it down in the form of I will and start to take action steps towards that goal. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: The Journey Continues!!
Today as I sought the theme for today’s entry the universal powers conspired to deliver this son, 93 Million Miles by Jason Mraz, to me. As I listened to the lyrics I began to understand that the journey towards spiritual awakening and enlightenment continues as it is an everyday walk. Each day presents opportunities to shine your light and to live in light and thus enlighten and awaken others. I have begun to sign comments on social media like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and others with the phrase Keep Shining Your Light. I began to do this as I understand that by lighting another candle you only increase the light so when you shine your light and are value of service you increase the brightness of those around you. In the spiritual awakening process you begin to understand that the journey to enlightenment starts with the first step. The question to ask is am I ready to take that first step and discover who I truly am? The journey will be fraught with trials and tribulations as well as filled with much joy and abundance. As you continue your journey you will begin to understand that everything that happens is happening for us not to us as GOD has a master plan for you. In making the decision to make the mind, body, soul connection and walk your path daily you will be able to understand why some things happen. In all that we do on this continuous journey we receive lessons and messages. In is the way we react to the messages and how we apply the lessons that determine our level of awakening and enlightenment. Read More→
