Your thoughts are your perspective on each and every situation and experience you have. You can choose to look at things from a positive perspective or a negative perspective. Retraining your brain is possible. It just takes practice, practice and more practice. Like the habits you developed over time – years – the practice of changing your thought process will take time – possibly years – likely a lifetime to perfect. You are a conscious, changing being and you evolve every second of every day. Conscious evolution is important for the highest self-improvement and awareness. Take time every day to assess your life and your inner self. Are you doing what is necessary for your highest good each and every day? Are you good to your vessel – your physical body? De-toxify. Release all that does not serve you for your highest good and replace with that which does. Change eating habits. Change exercise habits. Change thinking habits. Your vessel – your body is like a car that needs maintenance on a regular basis to keep it running and functioning at a highly efficient level. Be good to yourself and be good to the vessel you were carried to this physical world to ride in. Life is a journey. Take care of the carriage that moves you along the journey of life. Peace. Love. Amen.
Life is a river. It is eternal flow. It is always in motion. You can try to control it, but it is uncontrollable. This is when you get frustrated; lose hope. Give up control and go with the flow. View life as a river and you as the occupant of a canoe. There are times when the river is calm. These moments allow you to rest, gain strength, appreciate the wellbeing, focus on improving yourself and prepare for the future. Then come the rapids. These are the times when you need to hold on and go with the flow. Let the river take you. You will learn. You will grow. You will expand. You will desire more. You will find better use of your thoughts, because you will be forced to be strategic. Don’t fear the rapids; embrace them. View them as exciting, rather than frightening. Nobody knows what their future holds. Your life is like a ball of clay that you are constantly molding. Keep your thoughts positive. Keep your vibration high. Surround yourself with like-minded people that will spur conversations that help you to grow and evolve. Always consciously evolve. Pay attention to your life and the events and circumstances you encounter and always find ways to learn and grow. This is the river of life. Grab an oar and get paddling!
Spirituality is a way of life. It is a practice. It is daily connection to your higher spirit to receive messages that will guide your life. Spirituality is not a man made, organized religion. It is a Divinely guided way of living. There are many ways that you can get in tune with your higher self. Getting in tune on a daily basis will help you live a quality of life that exceeds one that is not in tune. First, there is gratitude. Gratitude is a practice of giving thanks for all that you have in your life. Being mindful in the present moment, give daily thanks for all that you have in your life. Next, there is meditation. Meditation is a channel used to quiet your mind so that you can reach your higher self and gain clarity, information and guidance. Daily meditation at the beginning of the day will set the tone for your day. As life’s stress shows up throughout your day, having meditated will better equip you to handle it on a calmer level. Finally, there is intuition. Intuition is your navigational system. It keeps you safe. It is that little voice inside of you that warns you and guides you. Always listen to your intuition, even when you don’t like what it is telling you. Spirituality is tuning into your higher self, which is your direct connection to Divine Spirit. It is all love and all pure. The world seen through the eyes of your higher self and Divine Spirit is nothing less than perfect. Look through those eyes. Divine Love.
Acceptance. You must accept yourself and others for who they are. Each person has a unique gift to give the world – a world that is so diverse and rich in talent. Like a puzzle, each person is a piece that is needed to complete the puzzle and make it whole. Unconditional love allows for the acceptance of others just as they are. A handicapped or disabled person can teach the world much, much more than others that are deemed “normal” by society. They look at the world through simplistic eyes and they are the most grounded and in tune with Spirit, because they don’t allow ego – can’t allow ego – to interfere and judge. The next time you have the opportunity to be around a person with a disability such as Down’s Syndrome or Autism, watch how they view life. It is with innocence and non-judgement. It is with acceptance for all. It is with unconditional love, because of their strong connection with Divine Spirit. They love without abandon, without fear of rejection, without shame or guilt. Their emotions are high and passionate – there is no filter. Pay attention and listen to these great teachers for it is through them that you will learn of love without conditions. Accept and Believe. Faith. Hope. Live. Love. Amen.
