Spiritual Awakening: Answered Prayers!!!
Each morning when I awake I thank GOD for another day to be of service and value. I ask GOD to make me an action taker and to give me the strength, courage, and enthusiasm to be a difference maker. As I go about my gratitude rituals such as writing in my gratitude journal I thank GOD for the prayers he has answered. Today I thank GOD for putting people in my life who are supporting my efforts to use my talents for good. I asked GOD to help me and guide me with my efforts to plant the seeds of hope and healing for cancer patients, their families, and their friends through my involvement with Relay For Life. GOD answered and gave me the tools to ask people to visit http://main.acsevents.org/goto/jdogg18 and make donations. In following his directions I have now raised $774 toward a goal of $2500 and I continue to let things go and let GOD. As a result my prayers are being answered.
In is when we put our trust in GOD that our prayers are answered. It is when we take action with the intention of glorifying GOD that we are rewarded with amazing results. GOD answers your prayers when he sees that you are using your talents for good. It is when you lift others up to GOD that you are lifted. may times GOD answers prayers in a very unique way. Such was the case when I wrote a message to Sam Bat, a company that makes customized baseball bats, asking them to support Relay For Life. After I wrote the message I prayed to GOD to bring this donation to fruition. On Saturday January 21 there was a knock on the door and a package was delivered for Relay For Life. It was a custom made maple bat from Sam Bat with the words Strike Out Cancer and May 5, 2017( The date of The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise). This will be used in the fundraising efforts as a tool to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. This is one of the many prayers that have been answered simply by letting go and letting GOD. 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: Give It All You Got!!!
As you awaken spiritually you begin to realize that it is important to give it all you got in all endeavors that you take on. It is said that when you give it you all that you are rewarded 10 fold. I have seen this at work when a few years ago a friend came to me and asked for support of their efforts to help people with Leukemia and Lymphoma as they were doing Team in Training. I was able to donate $18. About a week later i was setting up appoints for advertising executives at The Happy Herald and I sent them out on the appoints and they were successful is closing some deals. As a result my commission from those sales was $180. As I remembered the bible verse that GOD loves a Cheerful Giver I found myself giving more and more and as a result I was receiving great rewards be it free food, higher commission checks, paid announcing gigs, or paid marketing and business consultations. In being committed to giving it all that I got I was manifesting outstanding outcomes into my life. I have come to learn that the energy you bring to an endeavor determines the outcome. In giving it all you got you can rest your head and sleep well at the end of the day knowing that you sucked every last bit of marrow out of life by being of service and value to others. In giving it all you got and living a life filled with passion and purpose you will see that no one can stop you but yourself.
When you decide to give it all you got and realize that there is no one but yourself that can stop you setting and exceeding goals gets easier. In giving it all you got and detaching from outcomes you will see that you are moving positively in the direction of your dreams. I suggest you adopt an attitude of gratitude as you give it all you got so that you can create the life you want. In anything that you do while experiencing a spiritual awakening you must give it all you got as you answer your calling and stay positive in all that you do. As you answer your calling you will also see that changes need to be made so that you manifest what you desire by coming alive and serving the community. Many times it is making a small adjustment to your attitude or to the vibration you are giving off. If you aren’t getting the results you desire look inside and tap into your inner divinity seeking alternative methodologies and make changes required to bring peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. Sometimes it is as simple as looking at the man in the mirror. 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→
In todaySpiritual Awakening: Be The Ruler Of Your Life!!!
As you experience a spiritual awakening and decide to become an action taker you must commit to ruling your life. Instead of trying to rule the world your focus should be on how you can improve your personal, professional, and spiritual life thus allowing you the opportunity to enhance the lives of others. It is up to you to rule your life and follow your heart because what the heart believes and what the mind conceives you can achieve. The truth is that so many times we allow the outside influences of others to dictate our actions or lack of actions that we keep ourselves stagnant. In order to move forward and create the life you want you must stop listening to the outsiders and start listening to yourself so that you can rule your life. In taking command of your life and becoming the ruler of you life you will see that you will attract more peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life and thus you will be able to be of more service and value to others. As we grow we are told by parents, teachers, priests, rabbis, news media, and other sources what to believe and how to conduct ourselves. In listening to these sources we often hold ourselves back from our calling. In holding ourselves back and allowing others to rule us we create blockages that stop us from stepping into our power and achieving greatness. We listen to people tell us you are not good enough or you can’t make a living by doing that, or what can’t you be like everyone else and thus we get stuck sometimes. If you are to get unstuck you must become the ruler of your life.
One of my anthems over the years has been this Billy Joel song, My Life. At the end of the day it is your life and you have the choice to listen to the doubters and the haters or break free and rule your life. It is when you decide to chase your dreams and not to allow others to hold you back that you begin to rule your life thus manifesting what you desire. So many tines people are quick to tell you how you should be living and what you should be doing when they should be worrying about their own lives. When you begin to rule your life and shine your light you begin to illuminate the world. In illuminating the world you can effectively make positive changes that will leave the earth in a better place then you found it. Your taking action to rule your life sends a ripple of positivism that shifts the dynamic of society making improvements that leave a legacy of hope and healing for others. In ruling your life and dedicating yourself to be a lifter you will be lifted. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Spitting Fire!!!
What is lighting your fire and igniting your passion? In each of us we have a fire that once awakened is unstoppable. As long as we are spiritual awake and aware all we need is a small burning ember to live our life on purpose. It is amazing when we can use that fire below for the betterment of ourselves and others. When we discover our purpose and light our fire we are able to move passionately in the direction of our dreams. It is when we begin to spit fire that we are able to shine our light so bright that the entire world is illuminated. The fire and passion that we bring to our daily endeavors determines the outcome of our day.
When we go deep into the ring of fire we are ignited with a deeper understanding so that we can attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity. When we find like minded people who believe that peace, love, and understanding should rule the day we begin to be filled with a burning desire to be of service and value. As a result of having a burning heart and starting our own fir we begin to manifest the life that we desire by simply being filled with a divine fire that allows us to achieve what we once perceived to be impossible. It is when we are so consumed by the fire that we are able to ignite a burning flame that never burns out and inspires others.
Once you have a burning heart it is important to take action and follow your instincts by heeding the messages from above. It is when you answer your calling that you can make changes in your life and in the lives of others. When you put your heart into everything you do the fire inside of you will become an inferno and allow you to deliver a message of hope and healing to the world. 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→
Spiritual Awakening: Get Off The Bench!!!
As we experience a spiritual awakening we must commit to become an action taker and get off the bench. There comes a time when we must simply put ourselves in center field and prepare for the world to see our light shining bright. So many times we get so caught up with worry about what will other people think that we keep ourselves on the bench. As a result of sitting on the bench and forgetting everything and running we create blockages that stop us from having the success that GOD has intended for us. It is only when we take action to face everything and rise by committing to getting off the bench that we manifest the live we want as divinely guided by GOD. Through a spiritual awakening we learn that we are talented beyond measure and when we use our talents for good we create a life that id filled with peace, love, joy, and prosperity. Every time we decide to get off the bench and take action we will be greeted with challenges. It is in overcoming these challenges that we grow personally, professionally, and spiritually knowing that if GOD brought us to it GOD will bring us through it. It is when we decide to get off the bench and look at everything in a positive light tat we begin to find more happiness and success in what we do. It is when we decide to get off the bench and play the game by our rules that we create bliss and abundance.
What game will you play to manifest the life that you desire. Will you be an action taker or an excuse maker? Will you go against the norm and play by your own rules not worrying what others think or will you succumb to the pressure of what is perceived as normal and hold yourself back? The choice lies with you and if you choose to tap into your inner divinity and be guided by GOD, The Ascended Masters, and the Angels you will see that the game you play will be one filled with many victories. Each day you have a choice you can sit on the bench wondering what might have been or you can get off the bench and see what will be. Every day you have 86,400 seconds in the day to get off the bench and to take action to answer your calling.
Make this a year where you get off the bench and use your time wisely. It is when you vibrate with love and commit to doing small things with great love that you begin to shine a bright light that illuminates the world. When you get off the bench you put forces in motion to help you move positive in the direction of your dreams. Make your season a season where you are guided by love and compassion and you will see that love and compassion is given back to you. Be one who is genuine in your desire to be of service and value. Seek ways where you will vibrate on a higher level that attracts people and things to you to help you in exceeding your goals and objectives. Get off the bench and be limitless. Read More→
