Spiritual Awakening: Open Your Eyes!!!
As you begin to awaken inside it is important to open your eyes and look at all the beauty and opportunity that surrounds you. As you open your eyes and put judgement and attachment aside you will see that you are able to take action and thus move things forward in a positive direction of your dreams. In the awakening process it is important to let go and let GOD as GOD will open your eyes and put opportunities in front of you where you can be of value and service while prospering yourself and others. I have heard many people say how hard it is to find work and my answer is always that there is plenty of opportunity you just have to open your eyes and be ready ready to receive. Such was the case the other day as I was out collecting donations for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life as Rainbow had a help wanted sign in their window so I inquired and filled out the job application and guess what I start a part time on Monday (3/20/2017), which fits perfectly into my schedule. The idea is to open your eyes and be more aware and awake and prepared to take action.
When you are social media make sure you open your eyes and take action appropriately that will help you in your quest to be of service and value to others. In opening my eyes and taking action I have been able to secure some chance drawing items for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise, which will take place on May 5, 2017 at Piper High School from 6 PM – 12 AM (Midnight). I recently saw a post from a company, Sam Bat, a company that makes custom made baseball bats I wrote a comment asking them if they could donate a bat and they sent a bat that says Strike Out Cancer May 5, 2017. In opening my eyes and being awake and taking action I was able to secure this chance drawing item. I also was able to secure the assistance of my cousin who is a Scentsy Rep as she had posted on Facebook about her fundraising opportunity where she will donate 25% of all sales util April 28 to Relay For Life. The link is https:franklyscentsational.scentsy.us/party/7593720. In keeping your eyes open and taking action you will find that you grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Breaking Free!!!
The moment you awaken spiritually and decide to take action you set in motion all that is necessary to break free. When you commit to being your authentic self you are going to encounter some challenges as people will doubt you or try to tear you down. It is when you encounter these challenges that you must step into your power and walk in your truth. The key to breaking free is understanding you are a divine child of GOD deserving to be loved and respected. If you encounter those that do not lift you hold a special place fr them and pray and then break free. In doing things on your terms as you are guided by GOD you will find that you attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your life. In breaking free and detaching from expectations you will find that your level of bliss and abundance are increased. When you stop worrying about what everyone else will think and you break free by celebrating your spiritual awakening you will find that living a purpose driven life is very rewarding. In my experiences along my spiritual journey I have found that when I stand in my power and walk in my truth that good things happen. In breaking free from the so called norm you will find that your level of success increases as you will vibrate on a positive wave length that will attract the people and things into your life that will serve you.
Spiritual Awakening: Tools To Help You Break Free!!!
One way to break free is to consult with the ascended masters and listen to their messages. As you receive the messages remember to go from an excuse maker to an action taker. Read More→
I have come to realize that along my spiritual journey there will be some challenge and that not everything will go smoothly. When challenges arise we must remember that a joyful servant is rewarded. On Sunday (2/19/2017) my human side got the best of my spiritual side and I was very upset that I allowed the mean angry side out because I was frustrated. After I took a deep breathe and reflected on what I could have done differently I realized that my disconnection from source at the time was creating some confrontations that I wasn’t prepared for thus I wasn’t being a joyful servant. I took Monday, Tuesday, and part of Wednesday to understand why I was acting the way I was and why this disconnect was happening. I sat in meditation and prayed and the answer was revealed to me as I was worrying too much and that I was coming from a place of lack instead of abundance. On Wednesday night I decided to take action to change this and to reconnect with source by consulting the ascended masters, my angels, GOD, and Jesus and the message was clear as they all told me that I needed to be a joyful servant. I was also told to detach from outcomes and to stop worrying so much and simply to answer my calling by using my talents for good. As a result I went this morning and began to promote and fundraise for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life and I was met with success as I detached from the outcome and decided to be a joyful servant by simply changing the way I was doing things. In making a positive change and moving forward in a positive direction of my goals I was able to make a joyful noise unto the lord and thus get closer to my goal of raising $2500 to help those touched by cancer. My donation page is http://main.acsevents.org/goto/jdogg18 if you are so moved to take action and help to fund research, education, advocacy, and services for cancer patients, their families, and friends.
Sometimes all it takes to get back on track and be a joyful servant is a song to remind us that we have divinity in our heart and that all we have to do is call on this divinity to guide us. In making a connection and remembering that we are divine children of GOD we attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives. It is when we understand that along our spiritual journey there will be obstacles and that if GOD brought us to it GOD will bring us through it that our lives begin to change. In becoming a joyful servant we begin to improve our community by looking at what we can do as an individual to change things. When we realize that we have an incredible power inside of us we begin to manifest the greatness that is our birthright.
When I forget that I am on this earth to be a joyful servant to GOD I play this Styx Song asking GOD to show me the way. When I ask for guidance I am given many messages to follow to find the way and thus enabling me to be of service and value. One of the messages that I received while I felt disconnected was to become a cheerful giver and to be loving and caring in all that I do. I have come to learn that when you are frustrated and feel moved to anger to simply step back take a deep breath and allow GOD to guide you. The hardest thing we have to do in our human existence is to let go and let GOD. In taking action to reconnect to GOD I realized that confrontations that I encountered were lessons for me to learn and the lesson I learned this week was regardless of how mad or angry you feel you must use one of the fruits of spirit, self control, and realize that by being angry you only attract negativity into your life and until you learn to control that anger the negativity will persist. Through this lesson I was able to reconnect to GOD by taking time to see what I can do differently and to spread positivism and take all setbacks as an opportunity to step us and thus remain a joyful servant.

Spiritual Awakening: Get The Fatigue Out!!!
The last couple of weeks have found me more fatigued as my human existence was interfering with my spiritual existence. The worries of life seemed to be weighing heavily on my mind and my motivation was waning as I began to allow the negative self talk and worry to consume my thoughts so there were a few days that I didn’t even get out of bed. I then realized that if I am to move in a positive direction toward my goals and dream I have to get the fatigue out. It was when I sat in reflection last night that I realized that the only way to overcome any worry and fear that is holding me back is to get the fatigue out. In making a commitment to make everyday count I got up this morning and went to The American Cancer Society Office to turn in money for The Relay For Life. I am now at $1076 raised toward a goal of $2500. I realized that if I am to exceed this goal I must take more action and get the fatigue out. As a result I have been sharing the donation page http://main.acsevents.org/goto/jdogg18 and asking people for donations and have met with success because I got the fatigue out. I have come to use the following poem as an anthem to help me get the fatigue out.
As I took time to rest and reflect I found myself rejuvenated with a sense of purpose where I was helping myself to overcome my own humanistic worries while also help other people to enhance their personal, professional, and spiritual life. It was when I shifted from a sense of worry to a sense of hop and purpose that I was able to get the fatigue out and be energized. It was when I sat down ad wrote in my gratitude journal and read passages from Rev. Dr. Dee Addio Mosses Book, heal Your Life With Meditation And Prayer and then read passages from The Miracle Minute by Mary Morrisey that I was able to get back on track with my mission to help other people excel by being of service and value to all those I come in contact with.

Spiritual Awakening: Turning It Around!!!
As an action taker who finds myself on the go most of the time I have come to realize that of I am to be spiritually awake I must slow down so that I can turn things around. Such was the case today when I inquired as to my status as a n announcer for a team that I have worked with for 4 years. I was told that they weren’t going to have a DJ or announcer for their last 2 games. I was a bit disappointed as that took $200 out of my pocket as I was being paid $100 per game and now I have to find a way to make that up. This is what happens when you are a free lancer in the broadcasting world. As I reflected I turned to GOD and he sent me this song by The Byrds. It was at that time that I realized everything happens for a reason. This was GOD’s Way of telling me to not sell myself short and to find other opportunities where my talents would be awarded and respected. It was at that moment when another awakening occurred and I sent out text message to a few people who were interested in my services and I landed a few paying gigs.
When you decide to find the bright side in what is happening you begin to turn thing around and you win in the end. There is an adage that says when one door is closed another will open. This is so true and plays out many times in the spiritual awakening process. Sometimes your human feelings and ego get in the way because you allow yourself to feel under appreciated or disrespected and you stay in the situation because you are fearful of what might happen if you walk away. It is when you walk away from a situation that no longer serves you that you win in the end. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Finding The Way!!!
Many times along our spiritual path we may be distracted by sources that are trying to take our focus off of our purpose. These sources will also try to sway us from our connection with GOD. It is when these sources come into our lives that we must remember that we are divine children of GOD and that GOD has a purpose for us and will intervene in our life as necessary. It is at the times when you feel distracted and off track that you must reach down deep inside an reconnect with your inner divinity and become an action taker. I have found that listening to songs like this one from Styx helps to serve as a reminder that we are all looking for our way in life. As we begin to find our way we start to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our life. When we awaken to our purpose we begin to achieve things that others only thought were impossible. It is when we find our calling that we can become the change we want to see in the world. In an effort to find our way we must connect with GOD, Jesus, our angels, and the ascended masters as they will guide on a path that brings harmony, bliss, and abundance into our lives. It is when you are shown the way and follow the messages by taking action that you will find a sense of fulfillment in your life.
In finding my way I have found that oracle cards like those from Doreen Virtue and Sonia Choquette are very helpful in assisting me to tap into my inner divinity and keeping me centered, focused, and grounded as I continue on my path of spiritual awakening. In following the messages of the cards I have come to have a deeper understanding of my purpose thus allowing me to evolve personally, professionally, and spiritually. It is when we utilize all the tools in our spiritual tool box that we are better able to make the mind, body, soul connection that will propel us to the greatness which is our birth right. 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: 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: 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→
