I kept hearing the word “Acceptance” in my head this morning. “Acceptance”. “Acceptance”. “Acceptance”. Acceptance is much easier in the long run than Avoidance. Sure…it’s easy to avoid. It’s a matter of habit. We have all had the habit of avoidance at one time, or many times, over and over again in our lives. A habit is merely an ingrained exercise/action that becomes natural and second nature with time. If we can make negative actions habits, we can definitely make positive actions habits to replace their negative counterparts. So accept the past. Accept the present. Accept the here and now. It is what it is. Cliché, but true. Nothing is promised in this life – not your next breath, good health, a relationship, a long life. All we have is here and now. The present. Be mindful in the present. Let go of the past. Accept what was lived – good or bad – and release it. Let it go. It can do nothing for you in the here and now except haunt you with its memories. It will keep you chained in bondage, if you let it. It will remain your ghostly friend, forever by your side, if you allow it. Accept its lessons. Accept its growing pains. Accept its negativity. The negativity that allows you to sift through, accept and change your perspective to see in a positive way. Accept who you have become and who you are in this moment. Cling to the positive aspects of you and your life. Face the truth and release it. It is what it is….but it doesn’t always have to be. Accept it. Change it. Embrace it. Move beyond it. Become the you that you always dreamed of being. The only thing keeping you between this you and that you is avoidance…..and acceptance. Live Laugh Love.
Many people go through life on auto pilot. They allow their thoughts and emotions to arrive and take over automatically without any conscious control of them. Evolution of a person occurs in the same way. You have the power to consciously evolve. It takes a little preparation and practice, but it is necessary to live an enriched life of continuous self-improvement. Taking a self-assessment a few times a year is the way to start consciously evolving. You really need to take an honest look at your life. Resist the urge to be in denial when looking at yourself and your life. Make a list of what’s working and what’s not working. Assess the areas of your personality and habits that need improvement and then let the list sit for a few days. Go back to the list and create goals to improve the areas that need improvement. This is the beginning of conscious evolution. Be mindful. Be honest. Be clear. Be persistent. Conscious evolution takes constant practice, but with practice things become easier. You can change any thought pattern or habit by being mindful, setting goals and being persistent. Choose to consciously evolve and you will grow to be the best you yet!
Peace and Love Always~
New beginnings are a way to restart – to begin again. Wipe the slate clean. Time to clean up old habits – emotional and physical. Start with your diet. Take a good look at your diet and see which areas need to be improved. You don’t have to do anything drastic. Making small changes will ensure greater success and will keep you from feeling deprived. It’s simple and doesn’t have to be overwhelming. If you normally eat two pieces of pizza for dinner, cut it down to one piece and add a healthy salad. With time, you will be able to tweak your diet easily. Next, look at your thought processes. Clean up any negative thinking habits. This is something that takes continuous practice, especially if it is an ingrained habit. You need to be conscious at all times. You need to be able to realize the negative thought and in the moment of awareness make the choice to improve it with a positive thought. Doing a little leg work can be helpful. Make a list of all the things that you appreciate in your life as well as a list of things that just put a smile on your face. Carry this list with you at all times and when a negative thought raises its ugly head, pull the list out and read it. Continue to read it until the negative thought has passed. If you continue to do this on a repeated basis, you will soon see how easy it becomes and that you won’t need your list anymore. It will become automatic. Take this opportunity of a new beginning to birth a new you. You will be happy that you did!
Peace and Love Always ~
Worry gets you no where. The only thing worrying does is rob you of the happiness of NOW. Your reality is NOW. Be mindful in your NOW. The past is gone. The only thing that you need to bring from the past are the lessons learned so that you can apply them to your present and future. The future is before you and you aren’t promised it. You never know when the tide of life will change. Live in the present moment. Live in the NOW. Now is when your dreams come true. Now is when you live your life….This very moment. Now. There is so much to experience in the now. Make a goal for the future, but live in the NOW. Consciously evolve and improve as an individual each day of your life. Meditate and focus daily. Allow the peace of the meditation permeate throughout your day. Now is the time to live your life. Be mindful of the NOW. Let go of your fears and your worries and let God take them over.
Allow yourself to be guided and allow yourself to guide others. There are many things that each person can offer the world – their world. Each individual is unique and has talents that are uniquely theirs. You must trust in your abilities and talents. Don’t doubt yourself. Don’t doubt that you can make a difference in someone’s life, no matter how big or how small. Nothing is impossible and the skies and the heavens are the limits! Go forth this day and find someone in your world to help and guide. There is always someone in need, looking for direction or guidance. It may be simple; it may be more complex. Either way, trust that you have the skills to lead and guide. Go forth this day and guide. Be a beacon, a light to illuminate the path of another. You won’t believe how you will feel after you do. Keep the circle of life going.
Peace Love Happiness Amen Forever
Message for the week of June 19, 2017. Grace. Grace and Humility. It is important to stay humble. Humble in your day to day dealings with life. Graceful like a ballet dancer. Fluid and agile. Have faith that your life is working out for you. Don’t second guess what happens in your life. Everything happens for a reason and if you look back, you will see the web that was woven together with the experiences in your life. Your reaction to the experiences are just as important as the experience. Try to come from a place of humility and grace no matter what the situation is. Ease and Flow. Ebb and Tide. Wax and Wane. Yin and Yang. New moon/Full moon. Opposites attract. Polar opposites attract like a magnet. If you want positive in your life, think and act positive. If not, negativity will ensue. Keep your thoughts positive. Have faith in Divine Spirit and the Angels. Call on the Angels when you need them. They cannot intervene until called upon. Have faith. Amen. Manifestation. Meditation. Clarity. Grounding. Amen.
The Divine Guidance I received for this week –
We need to bring peace to the world and it will start with the children. Positive direction, enlightenment and peace techniques will help to ensure a positive and more peaceful future in the world. Children are our future. We must treat them with respect and love and nurture them. They are the pioneers of the future who will go forth and continue to build and change this world. We need to – MUST give them the tools needed to construct this world in a peaceful and enlightened way. Wars are for the weak and weak minded. Love is strength and courage. With love, all things are possible. Grow your children in a peaceful way teaching them how to come to peace in stressful situations. Practicing meditation and yoga helps to center and ground and it unifies soul, body and mind. Children need direction and room to explore and grow. Don’t stifle their growth or hold them back out of fear or feeling they are too young. They are learning and growing every day and will be guided by the person or persons who are in their lives impacting them. Choose these people carefully. Make sure that your ghosts of the past – the ones that scare you, that taunt you, that belittle you, that ridicule you – those ghostly voices in your head that may say “you aren’t good enough, why try, you will never make it” – make sure those ghosts are put to rest – cast aside. The past is behind you and the future is ahead. Look forward onto the horizon not behind you. Bring in positivity. Study spiritual teachers of any and all religions or sources and find the common thread of peace and passion. Together we can make this world peaceful. Together. It must start with the children of our world.
This is the time of rebirth. In the Christian religion, Jesus rose from the dead and his resurrection was the holiest sign of the religion. Use this example to resurrect your life. You can make changes to your life that will give you a rebirth of sorts. Take some time today to focus on areas of your life that need improving. Maybe you need to start eating healthier. Maybe you need to exercise or exercise more. May you need to quit a negative habit – smoking, drinking, etc. Maybe you need to learn how to control your anger better. Maybe you need to develop more patience. Maybe you need to be more spiritually minded. Maybe you need to meditate more or start meditating. Maybe you need to get on your knees and pray. Maybe you need to be grateful – every day – every morning upon waking. Take this moment, this day, to resurrect yourself. We all have the chance for a new beginning. We all have the chance for improvement in our life. You have to decide if you want it or need it and then act upon it. Have faith, tenacity and patience. Love one another.
Trust. Trust in yourself. Trust in others. Trust that Divine Spirit is always keeping your best interest at heart. What is best for you in terms of growth and evolution? Don’t look at negative or unpleasant events as obstacles or challenges. Look at them as opportunities for growth, evolution and transformation. You have the ability to transform your life into whatever you want it to be. The truth and the power lies deep within you. You must access it. Meditation and prayer will help you to unlock the truth and use the power to transform your life. Want to lose weight? The answer lies within you. Ask and receive. Want to change careers? The guidance you need is waiting to be unlocked. All you have to do is go within and ask the questions you need for clarity and guidance. Trust your instincts and trust the messages you receive. Your higher self is your compass and will never steer you wrong.
The Full Moon is the time to release all that no longer serves you. This is a time when you can detoxify your body and release toxins that have built up through the consumption of impurities in food, alcohol, nicotine, etc. Take this time to ask the Universe and Divine Spirit to release all the things from you that are not for your highest good. Decide what you want to improve in your life. Maybe you need to release impatience or anger. Ask that this release be replaced with the opposite of it. You may find that this is not an easy process. We tend to cling to things that aren’t good for us – people, bad habits, etc. – because it’s easier than to let it go. But, you will find, if you let the things go that no longer serve you, you will feel a weight lifted off your shoulders. Try to live a pure life with a pure heart. Regard your body as a temple and worship it will things that are good for it – good thoughts, clean food and broken habits.
