Spiritual Awakening: Calmness Has Its Rewards!

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.

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: 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: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: 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:Time Is Ticking Away!!!

As I sit at my local Starbucks waiting on an appointment that was supposed to be here at 6:30 PM it is now 7:30 PM I think about how important it is to make our moments along our spiritual journey count as the time is ticking away. Imagine if  $525,600 was deposited in your bank account at the beginning of the year and you had to use it all but when it was gone and you could never get it back. That is what time is it is a commodity that once used you can not get back. How many of you are saying oh I’ll d that later or I will do that tomorrow? Today there were many people who were planning to do something tomorrow but because GOD called them home they will not have a tomorrow. This is why it is imperative to become very aware and awake as you continue along your spiritual journey. In the blink of an eye or a snap of the finger our life can change thus we must become action takers and commit to living in the now and when things happen like having someone late for an appointment that GOD had a different plan for us. In my case this evening(6/30/2017) it was an opportunity to get inspiration and to write this blog entry as I was waiting. I could have pointed the blame and brought a whole lot of negative energy to the situation instead I just prayed and hoped that the person I was waiting for was okay. As I was waiting two coaches from The American Basketball Association came in to Starbucks and we were able to catch up for a while and one put a $1 in my donation canister for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise. It is amazing how everything happens for reason. In being conscious of how we use our time we are better able to embrace the spiritual awakening process and thus better understand that if GOD brought us to it GOD will bring us through it. It is when we keep the negative emotions in check and instead of being angry that someone is running late or didn’t call to tell you they would be late or didn’t respond to your texts you can take it as sign to simply go about delivering your message knowing that everything will work out. Time is ticking away so it is important to use it wisely to be of service and value to others.
Through the spiritual awakening process I have come to understand that every moment you have is precious and thus you should make the most of it and embrace the time that you have to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. It is when we set our mind to being of service and value that we not only change the lives around us but we also change our life. Instead of worrying what might be just look at what is and be grateful for what you have and for what is coming for you as GOD’S plans for you are larger than any plans you may have for yourself.

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→

Spiritual Awakening: Taking A Step Back!!!

As we continue on our spiritual journey and become more and more aware and awake we must remember that we must step back and detach from the situation at hand. Today (4/25/2017) I was tested as I was out collecting for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life and had an encounter that taught me a very important lesson. That lesson is that not everyone is going to be open to receive the message that you are delivering. I also used my spiritual teachings to take a step back and apologize to the person who seemed to be upset with me. In doing this I was able to diffuse any hard feelings that this person may be harboring. As I walked back to my car I did a gratitude prayer and realized that I should be focusing on those who gave and those who were supportive instead of one person who gave off a negative vibration. As I sat in quiet contemplation I understood that in being an action taker you will encounter all types of situations that will force you to dig deep inside and understand that you must take a step back sometimes and then move forward by being caring in all you do.
It is important to move right along despite any set backs and challenges. When these challenges occur while on our spiritual journey we need to take a step back take a deep breath and create a special place for those who have created the challenges and then let it go. It is in stepping back and taking responsibility that you are able to clear blockages that may be holding you back. On a daily basis it is important to take a step back and reflect on how far you have come so you can let the past go and let GOD as you move forward in a positive direction moving toward your dreams. As you move right along you will encounter those who do not resonate with you and will react in a negative manner to the point of even calling you names. When this happens remember that it is imperative not to take anything personally. It is important to take action so that you can step into your power and achieve the greatness that you are destined to achieve. Through the awakening process you will find that when you step back and take responsibility for the role you played in any situation you are able to release any of the blockages that are stopping you from moving forward.
