Spiritual Awakening: Thinking Globally:Acting Locally

As the holidays of Hanukkah and Christmas approach we all should be reminded that there is more to the holidays than just presents. These two holiday celebrate miracles that led to hope and healing. each holiday represents the concept that we can light up the world by simply standing in our truth and becoming an action taker. In this time of a great shift we need to think globally and act locally. We have a power inside of us to be difference makers.

As you experience a spiritual awakening and begin to see that we are all interconnected and that regardless of color or religious backgrounds we are all divine children of GOD  who can follow our calling and thus affect change in our local communities by simply thinking globally and acting locally. We can become action takers and show that the smallest acts of kindness will create a ripple effect that will shift our collective conscience and thus produce more positive outcomes in the world. Instead of fighting and trying to prove who is right or wrong we need to come together and find ways to be of service and value to each other. It is time to truly look deep inside and tap into our inner divinity and then recognize the divine in others. Instead of being judgmental and jealous and competitive we must seek ways to coexist realizing that we are more alike than different.  This holiday season let us put our differences aside and find a way to be of service and value to each other by making an effort to spread peace, love, joy, and prosperity everywhere we go.  Make an effort daily to do a kind act and see the effect that it has on others. Sometimes a simple smile can change someone’s day. Last year I gave out greeting cards to people simply wishing them happy holidays some were receptive while others were defensive it was then that I realized not everyone is ready to think globally and act locally and some people just don’t get the idea that someone would be kind with no expectation of return.

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 Awakenings: A Season Of Gratitude And Healing!!!

As we begin to enter The Holiday Season it is important to make gratitude and healing part of each day and to carry forward the concept of spreading joy. You have an opportunity daily to be supportive of others and to be a lifter all you have to do is focus on making positivism rule your day. The vibrations that you give off will be returned to you.  In the trying times that we face today we need to take a step back and breathe and be grateful for what we have  and celebrate that we have the ability to be action takers and make a positive impact on the lives that we come in contact with through out the day. Every interaction we have is a chance to spread peace, love, joy, and prosperity to others. One of the things I like to do to get me in a positive spiritual frame of mind is to listen to different spiritual related songs so that I stay centered, focused, and grounded on the mission to make this a season of gratitude and healing. In adopting certain anthems and following the ascended masters it allows us the opportunity to make a joyful noise unto the lord providing us to attract more gratitude and healing into our lives.
In making a joyful noise to the lord in praise and worship you open channels to enhance your personal, professional, and spiritual life. In making this a season of hope and healing you will find that you vibrate on a high level that attracts the tools necessary to manifest the life you desire  into your daily routine. In letting go and letting GOD by showing gratitude you will find many issues resolved so that you can move forward in a positive direction of your dreams. Read More→

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: Watch Your Mouth!!!

As we continue on our spiritual journey it is important to adhere to the words we heard when we were young, watch your mouth. IT is important to become aware of the words we are using and the attitude that we are conveying when we speak as the words combined with attitude will determine the altitude that we reach as we awaken spiritually. It is when you hold yourself accountable for the words you speak that you will find that life flows a little easier for you as you begin to take action to bring to fruition the words that you speak. When you are impeccable with your word you will see that peace, love, joy, and prosperity come to you easily and effortlessly. In taking action and choosing your words wisely you will begin to manifest the life that you desire.
Words have a great power and can either trap you or free you thus it is important to be very cognizant of the words that you are using. Are you using lack words or words of abundance. For example are you saying I can’t afford that or are you saying I will find a way to afford that. Are you say I am trying or I am doing. Take a look at how you are expressing yourself and then evaluate what is happening in your personal, professional, and spiritual life.  How you choose to use words will determine if you exceed a goal or fall short of a goal.  I am reminded about the time I eliminated the word try from this statement, I will try to raise $1500 for The American Cancer Society Relay For Life. I simply said I will raise $1500 and all of a sudden I found myself getting more and more donations and at the end of the fundraising period for Relay For Life I had raised over $2300. In changing what we say and eliminating limiting beliefs we begin to achieve goals that we never thought possible. In going from negative lack words to positive abundance words we begin to attract peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives which allows us to be of service and value to others. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: The Moment Of Awakening Has Come!!!

This past weekend I had the opportunity to announce 8 football games as part of The Gold Coast Pop Warner Football Championships. I am grateful for this opportunity as not only did it provide me a source of income but it also became a catalyst for spiritual growth. I arrived at the stadium on Saturday and asked the city staff person about getting a microphone and was told he was instructed not to give us one. I brought this up to the Gold Coast Pop Warner Football Representative and he made sure I had a microphone to announce the 4 games for that day. Despite the rain I was able to do a good job and use my talents to bring the game to life. On Sunday I arrived at the park and the sound system wasn’t set up and when it did get set up my voice sounded like the teacher from The Peanuts. I was a bit upset as I always strive to do my best when announcing a game. The situation was rectified as one of the teams brought their sound system and it worked out great. There were a few challenges like the site lines from the press box being obstructed at times however I was able to over come them and  do the job that I was hired to do. I share this because in the past I would have let anger rule the day and would have allowed it to ruin what I enjoy doing however this time I took a deep breath and allowed the issues to be corrected.  In being an action taker coming from a position of peace and understanding I was able to do my job and do it well and at the end I was able to have success.
In experiencing a spiritual awakening you will begin to become more and more aware and awake. As a result of understanding that the moment of awakening has come you will find yourself having a better understanding of who you are so that you can tap into your inner divinity and come alive. In coming alive you will begin to attract more peace, love, joy, and prosperity into your as your divine connection to GOD is strengthened. Last Night (10/30) I Hosted The Don’t Get Spooked By Cancer Fundraiser to benefit The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sunrise at The Hooters in Sunrise. In the past I would have been upset by the people who passed by the booth and didn’t donate but last night I decided to be grateful for those who did give and to detach from the outcome. In doing this $202 was raised through the chance drawings and donations. In showing gratitude I was was able to help raise funds for research, education, advocacy, and services. I was able to simply understand that in another moment of awakening that if I simply do my best and am authentic then I will be rewarded with a successful event.  When we awakening spiritually and start to remove the negatives from our lives, what I like to call stinking thinking, and and we start to become more and more positive we enjoy a life filled with bliss and abundance.

Spiritual Awakening: Sowing The Seeds Of Love!!!

In the wake of some of the tragic events that have happened in the last several weeks I felt it was important to encourage people to sow the seeds of love by taking positive actions to spread peace, love, joy, and prosperity everywhere. As you awaken spiritually you will find that taken action from a position of love and kindness will enhance your personal, professional, and spiritual life.  We can go through life being angry and bitter which only leads to heartache and disease or we can choose to come from a position of love and gratitude and thus manifest a life that is filled with bliss and abundance. In looking at life being filled with endless possibilities we begin to tap into our inner divinity which allows us to follow the guidance of GOD, Jesus, The Angels, and The Ascended Masters creating the life we desire. It is important to understand that of you can not do great things that you do small things with great love. When you sow the seeds of love by taking action and following your passion you will find success.
When you answer your calling and embrace it with great love you will find yourself coming alive and being of service and value to others thus manifesting the life that you desire. When you wake up in the morning and realize that out of all the fruits of spirit Love s the greatest you will find yourself dealing with challenges as they arise much easier as you will understand that if GOD brought you to it GOD will bring you through for GOD loves you and wants you to be be happy and prosperous. When you commit to follow your heart the mind will follow and you will begin to create a life that is filled with the fruits of spirit. Read More→

Spiritual Awakening: Close Calls!!!

Image result for Hurricane IrmaAs Hurricane Irma circled over my condo I had many close calls and as the power went off I thought wow now is a good time to simply pray and meditate. As I prayed and asked GOD to protect me and everyone in the path of this disastrous storm I realized that in my life there have been many close calls and some how each time I experienced a close call I came out of it spiritually stronger as the divinity inside of me became more and more awakened.  As the storm subsided and life took on a sense of normalcy I realized there are many who will have to rebuild as this storm took many of the materialistic items that people had accumulated over time. My mom, who was called home to GOD on July 5, 2012 after suffering a massive heart attack while battling non-operable metastatic lung cancer used to say if money can fix it everything will be all right. She was correct to a certain extent as you can not replace memories or the warmth of a home you grew up in or the items that had sentimental value. As the storm passed I remembered the teaching that if GOD brought me to it God will bring me through it. I thanked GOD for keeping the damage to my community minimal and then I prayed that he would make everyone whole and complete.  This close call made me realize just how lucky I was to make it through the storm and how fortunate I am to have talents to use to be of service and value to others.

Image result for semi truckIn the weeks after the storm I have had some close calls like today (10/3/2017) as I was nearly hit by a semi tractor trailer while driving in a parking lot. At first I was mad that the driver didn’t see me and didn’t yield the right of way to me. After I avoided this close call I parked my car and I thanked GOD for watching over me. I then went in to the barber shop to get my hair cut. As I was leaving the barber shop I witnessed a car on fire two spots away from my car and I called 911 and moved my car to safety. I thought wow I just spent $300 on 2 new tires for the car and it was nearly caught on fire. As I hung up with the 911 operator and saw that I was safe I looked to the heaven and thanked GOD and Jesus for watching over me.  On my way to Starbucks I kept thinking how lucky I was and how many close calls I have had. There must be some message in these close calls. I think it is GOD telling me to slow down and find ways to be of service and value to others.  Read More→
