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: Keep Calm And Keep Giving!!!

Image result for god loves a cheerful giverThrough the spiritual awakening process I have come to realize that whatever you bring to a situation is returned to you. This was very evident yesterday (11/8/2017) when I had a slight traffic mishap in the parking lot at my condo. I was upset because the lady I hit spoke no English and I told her we live in American learn English well this was overheard by the neighbors and they were upset. I took a deep breath and apologized and we worked everything out. As I went about my business of the day I realized that what ever you give you get back tenfold thus if you want peace you need to be peaceful. If you take action filled with love and gratitude you will receive love and gratitude in return.

Image result for god loves a cheerful giver In becoming a cheerful giver and being of service and value to others you will be rewarded. It is when you stay calm and keep giving without an expectation of return that you grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. If you stay calm and keep giving from a place that id filled with peace, love, joy, and prosperity you will attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. When you remain calm and take a step back to detach from the situation you will find that everything works out just the way GOD intended it to work out for you. GOD may put some challenges along your path to remind you of the importance of being humble and refraining from the emotions that create blockages and stop you from moving toward spiritual enlightenment. In every situation you face their is an opportunity for growth.

Image result for The Giving Heart MJ RyanI was introduced to this book a few years ago and I had the pleasure to interview M.J. Ryan on my radio show, Get Motivated With Jonathan JDOGG Lederman. It was through these lessons that I learned the importance of keeping calm and giving. I learned that when you are authentic about your giving that you are rewarded. Sometimes it is a matter of simply giving of yourself that creates opportunities for personal, professional, and spiritual growth. The lessons learned over the last several days have allowed me to see that it is when I am focused, centered, and grounded with the intention of helping others that my life flows in a positive manner. I have learned that in tough situations it is important to stay calm and keep giving love and compassion to others. It is important to focus on the good that can come of all situations by remembering that if GOD brought you to it GOD will bring you through it. Read More→

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.

Image result for RhinestonesRhinestone

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:Who Are You Walking With?

As you awaken spiritually and become more and more aware of your purpose it is important to take an inventory of who you are walking with as you become the sum of the people you surround yourself with through out your spiritual journey.  When you decide to walk with ascended masters  like Jesus and take action according to the messages they are sending you will become a magnet for peace, love, joy, and prosperity. In becoming awake and aware of who you are walking with you will be able to more effectively answer and embrace your calling by becoming an agent of change in your community. Mother Teressa once said that if you can not do great things do small things with great love. Mother Teressa would have been someone great to walk with and follow along a path toward spiritual enlightenment. Though you may not be able to physically walk with Mother Teressa today you can carry on her teachings by showing love and compassion in all that you do to shine your light bright and illuminate the world. As you look at who you are walking with make sure you surround yourself with people who make you come alive, who lift you up, and support you in your endeavors to be of service and value. Along your path take an inventory of the people who are impeccable with their word, who do not take things personally, who do not judge, and who always do their best and surround yourself with them. Along your spiritual path there will be times to detach from those who do not serve you as they no longer help you to become the enlightened being that you are destined to become. It is hard to detach from those who no longer support your personal, professional, and spiritual growth but it is necessary to move on so that you walk with the people that GOD intends you to be walking with along your path to becoming a beacon of hope and healing for others. In deciding who to walk with you must take the emotions out of the equation and decide based on the premise to find those people who will help to enhance the spiritual awakening process. Yes, it will get lonely at times and in those times it is important to remember that you are never alone as GOD, Jesus, The Ascended Masters, and Your Angels are always with you to help you follow your dreams and be guided by the universe that will conspire to allow you to step into your power and achieve the greatness that is your birthright.

Spiritual Awakening: Light A Candle Of Hope!!!

As I was preparing to leave my condo today to go out an take action to spread a message of hope and healing I reached into my cash box for a $50 gas card and while doing so I knocked over and broke The American Cancer Society Hope Award that I received in 2008 as part of my involvement with Relay For Life. As I picked up the pieces and put them in the garbage I realized that it was no the award that was important but what it represented. The award represented me becoming a beacon of hope for those touched by cancer. As I placed the pieces of the award into the garbage I also realized that this was a message to stop living in the past and to pick up the pieces of my life and light the flame inside of me that will become a candle of hope. In becoming an action taker and becoming more aware and awake I have come to understand that there are messages that come to us daily. It is up to us to take these messages and light a candle of hope that will encourage others to do the same thus illuminating the world. As I took the broken pieces of The Hope Award and placed them in the back I thought about how important it is to throw the pieces of my life that are no longer serving me away and to simply face everything and rise. As I though more and more about the award I realized that it is not about the award at all it is about the journey and the positive impact made along the way.  It is when we light our candle that we encourage others to do the same and as a result we begin to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives. In taking a deep breath and understanding that everything happens for a reason we can add value to our life so that we can be of service to others. It is when we light candles of hope and understand that we have the ability to help other people excel be it with a word of encouragement or designing an action plan with them. Sometimes it is as simple as being a candle in the wind.

On of the people I admired over the years was Lady Diana who showed the world that regardless of our status in life we can make a difference in the world. When Lady Diana passed on August 31, 1997  I remember hearing this song and realizing that it was time to rekindle a spark inside of me that desired to show the world that service to humanity was the best work of life. Over the years I have had many opportunities to be a candle of hope by being of service and value to the communities where I have lived, worked, and played. In understanding that I have an opportunity to be a candle of hope on a daily basis by simply being positive and encouraging I am able to attract light into my life that allows me to move forward in a positive direction of my goals. Take a moment to be a candle in the wind and inspire others to become action takers so that they can enhance their lives and the lives of others. Shine your light bright for the world to see.

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→
