Whew! We made it to the end of this wonderful, magical, and life transforming meditation series. I have really enjoyed doing this daily as a part of my day and I will continue to include these ancient practices into my daily routine.
What is seeing with the eyes of the Soul? I believe it is loving and faith. Sometimes we just have to step out on faith and trust that G-d has our back. No one else can live your life. No one else can write your life’s story. You and only you are in the drivers seat and the directors seat making the choices that sum up your life. I hope I have inspired many of you to try something new and that it was helpful and beneficial to you. I can tell you that my life has been truly transformed. I am no longer settling for the crumbs I can get from others but I am now following the recipe that is uniquely designed for my life.
I will say again when you know who you are, you know your power. I had once given away my most precious gift. I willingly walked blindly along side those who tried to snuff my divine light out because they had little to no light of they’re own. However, when we focus on others that is when our soul eyes close and the ego eyes open. Now that my soul eyes are open and I am seeing the divine light everywhere, it is guiding me to other light holders. I don’t ever want to operate out of my ego again. The ego brings death and destruction but the soul brings light and life. My true self is everything I hold dear. I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to have my mother call me almost in tears because as she put it “everything she had poured into me I am finally bringing forth.”I know how she feels because by changing my life and going after my dreams, I see that spark of light and life in my daughter. We are the examples to the next generation. If we don’t stand up and step out and be the best we can be, how will they? More is observed and learned than is learned from being told. I am a changed woman. No longer afraid to stand up and be counted amount the many numerous women who changed the course of history. I now love myself and am my own best friend. This doesn’t mean that I’m not open to outside relationships but it means I now know my place in those and I can be of greater service because I now know what to say yes to and what to say no to.
I have a gift of a song for you again. It has been an anthem for me and I hope they will be for you as well.
What better way to tell the world. I am G-D’s woman hear me ROAR!!
It’s funny how your soul can be crying out and the noise of this world drowns out its cries. But when you slow down and check in with yourself, you get all its answers and healing takes place. My soul has been crying out to me….get in touch with real love. The love that is unapologetically full force in your face. The type of love that is mind blowing. The type of love that is transformational. I had allowed myself to become cold to love because of things that occurred in my life. Those things came into my life under the guise of love but they didn’t fit the outline of love. I think the best passage on love is found in the Bible.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 1st Corinthians 13:4-8
My soul had been crying out and the type of love I was allowing into my life didn’t fit the above. It was everything opposite of the above. It wasn’t until I listened to my soul that I opened my heart and allowed the love listed above to come into my life. I now know I am deserving of that type of love and I will never except anything less! We all are deserving of that type of love. If any of your relationships don’t mirror the above I plead with you to let them go so that one that does can freely come in. What we focus on becomes our reality. I believe this is why the Bible instructs us to think only on good things because it is a spiritual principle that where our heart is that is where our mind is.
So what’s in your heart? Have you checked in with yourself to see what your inner higher self has to say to you? Do you feel detached from others and yourself? If so, give yourself a love spiritual check up. I could go on and on about love but by now you know I love music so I will let this song speak for where I am in my life. I hope you enjoy it.
The path to total transformation
My inner light is guiding me.
My true self shines with its own light.
Ok immediately I heard in my head, this little light of mine I’m gonna let it shine. Next was, who lights a lamp and places it under a bed? But when the lamp is lit you place it in a high place in order for the light to shine.
How many of us know that it only takes a small speck of light to cast out darkness? I know this first hand because my smart phone flash light is small but bright in the night.
Have you ever been in a place so dark that even if you have a flash light it only lights up a few steps ahead? Well I’m coming out of that place. The sun is rising and I can see the path ahead clearly thanks to the light of the sun. There are so many light references out there, it’s funny.
Like a moth to a flame.
Why is it that everything on this planet is drawn to light? Is there a secret life giving force we get from light that our conscious mind doesn’t pick up but our subconscious mind does? There is something magical about light. Light can transform darkness.
After every storm, there is a rainbow which is formed by light. There are many colors in the rainbow and maybe just maybe you are the rainbow to someone else’s storm. Let us not be afraid to let our lights shine and lets do everything we can to keep them shining brighter and brighter!
The rewards of the higher self.
Have you even met your higher self? The one who isn’t stuck in fear or other negative thought cycles. The one that you were as a child. So many dreams and no thought of why you couldn’t do this or that.
Well if you haven’t met or you are in need of a reconciliation let me help you. The good news is your higher self is with you all the time. When we operate out of our higher self, we can move mountains, and we can jump over hills. This journey has been about you and me this whole time. We are the ones with the power to audit ourselves and make changes.
I have another confession to make. At the beginning of this little experiment I was so stuck in negative thinking and negative environment that I didn’t have the faith to believe this could be life changing. Or did I? I believe my higher self had faith for both the higher and lower me. I did the one thing many people are afraid to do. I took the first step to acknowledging I didn’t like my life. Then I took the next step to do something, anything to change it!
For many years, due to a bad relationship, I felt my power had been taken away. I had bought the lie that my life as it was couldn’t change. I was getting all the signals that I wasn’t happy however I wasn’t brave enough to try. Until I got shaken and challenged. I feel like my child self again. Even though my life isn’t perfect, I have this unspeakable joy and outlook that just around the corner is everything I want and you know what I’m starting to attract it! All the negative parts are coming to an end and my heart, head and soul have opened to notice and receive the good that is easily flowing in. When we stand in our power, it doesn’t frighten nor intimidate others who are also standing in their power. Like begets like. It’s as easy as 1-2-3, focus on being grateful and letting go. Don’t hold onto lower self energy because it brings blocks and causes the flow to stop. Think of the flow as a river. When a river bed gets full of rocks, it stops the flow to the lower parts of the river causing things to get messy. But when there are no blocks in the river, the river is constantly reinventing itself as a new river. The river has its own filter system in place by moving the water. Everything that is yucky gets pushed to the sides and all that is good flows freely down the middle. That is how I want my life to be and yours. I wish this feeling upon every one of my readers.
Again I’m so thankful to have you following my blog. You don’t know it but you are participants in the Divine’s plan for helping me overcome fear and just do it. You being here is an active prophesy being revealed one step at a time. It’s all because we are standing in our truths and full power.
Grace is perfect even when my life isn’t. Ok, so for the first time I almost didn’t want to add anything to the statement because it’s perfect the way it is. How amazing is it that we can live in a constant state of grace. The world becomes more vibrant, and more beautiful. Like a heart you can feel it’s beating and you join in the never ending cycle of ebbs and flow. You began to let things go because they don’t really matter to the bigger picture. Once you claim who you are you stop fighting with others about who you aren’t. To tell you the truth, you stop fighting with them about who you are as well. It doesn’t matter if other people don’t get you or seek to do harm towards you because you are stuck in the bubble of grace. Grace doesn’t mean we bow down and pretend to see the world for what it isn’t but it does mean we except it for what it is. We began to do our part to make it a better place. We can easily handle all the things life throws at us and not interrupt the flow of trust by being authentic and taking responsibility for all of our decisions.
I will say it again, you are the author of your life. So what stories are we writing? Does your life book need a rewrite? If it does may I suggest Grace.
Succeeding through Gratitude
I attract divine abundance and blessings. How many of us are parents?
I am and I learn so much from my daughter. When I see her not being grateful I feel I have failed as a parent and I want to cut off her many blessings which come from me. No I’m not talking about the bare essentials but I am talking about the extras that we as parents get much joy in providing for our kids. I think G-d feels the same way. He wants His children to be grateful at all times because if He doesn’t do another thing for us it should be enough.
There is a scripture that says “G-d loves a cheerful giver.” He loves a cheerful giver because in that giver He sees Himself. Also another scripture talks about how we take care of the things G-d has given us. To those that do what is right they are given more but those that hold onto the little they have even that is taken away. G-d is such a giver He challenges us to test him on these spiritual laws. He already knows He can and will keep His side of the deal. Yet He is looking for us to offer up trust by giving to His works.
When you are in proper alignment everything can flow to you freely but if there are bends and things in the way, the flow is cut off. It’s not that it has stopped. Its just that there is something blocking it from getting to you.
I’m a big believer in affirmations. They help to remind us of many wonderful things and they put our minds and hearts in agreement with G-d’s words over us.
I hope you are enjoying this journey. Thank you for sticking around and reading daily. May we all be blessed with abundance and unlimited blessings.
Wow, I can’t believe we are almost at the halfway point in this journey.
I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am. How true is it that we all love to be appreciated? We love to be around those that value us, that see what we bring to their lives. People that uplift others in grace and gratitude often are very popular and when we leave their presence we are often left inspired, energized and ready to take on the world again.
However, on the flip side, we all have been around those people that are the total opposite and seem to drain all the life force from us. My circle of friends and family have a name for them…. “Downers.” They just seem to bring everyone around them down. Nothing in their life is ever right and it is rarely their fault. They always have bad news and never seem to get out of a never ending cycle of depression. Recently, I watched Harry Potter and there was a character in there that fit exactly what I’m describing. I know out of the two types of people I have explained I much rather want to be like the first group. When we are grateful for everyone in our lives ( I’m talking about healthy relationships), they seem never ending and easygoing. There’s an ebb and flow of give and take but to us it always feels like giving. Iron sharpens Iron.
I want to encourage those of us that may be in difficult spots in some of our relationships. If the relationship is healthy, I encourage you to breathe gratefulness into it and watch it flourish. If the relationship is toxic, I encourage you to cut ties with that relationship and find others that are healthy and positive.
May the Divine be with you every step of the way, lighting your feet as you go. May you bring light to all you encounter and may you be blessed.
Joe Campbell “the profligate of a lifetime is being who you are” “The present moment is the only constant we have” – Oprah Being grateful for who you are and honor that. You are the author of your own life story. No one else can live your story. Be gracious to yourself. We have so much power over our own lives. How many of us actually believe that? I know for a long time I didn’t. I thought I had to take life as it was handed to me and that was my cross to bare. Then certain events took place in my life. I have a wonderful friend who wasn’t afraid to shake me and say hey your wings are being clipped, you are not being who you are. I see you hiding and it pisses me off. The truth is, it pissed me off as well. I was living a lie, a lie that someone else had made for me. A lie someone else had placed on me and I was dying. The real me, the unique me was dying. The light that was given to me was dimishing all because I wasn’t being who I was created to be. We all have childhood stories of things that chip away at who we are. Mine are no different than yours except I was able to fight and keep my light glowing bright until later in life. I always felt like it was my duty to help others shine and lower my light. What a pack of lies that was! We only hurt ourselves by living another’s persons life. Thankfully, I had someone in my life who wasn’t afraid to say , “hey what’s going on here.” That was the catalyst for change in my life. The other day! I spoke to a friend and I told them don’t waste time on people who don’t get you. If you comprise to the point where you don’t recognize yourself something is wrong. Now, I’m not talking about changing for the better of course, we want to be in relationships that do that for us. But if you are making your light smaller so someone else’s can shine and they are ok with that RUN AWAY from that person because they are light suckers! They haven’t found out who they are yet or they don’t love themselves enough to be able to have light around them and stand out with their own light. The older I get, the more in love with myself I become. No, not in an unhealthy way, but just not being afraid of what makes me who I am. I am fearfully and wonderfully made! I have as much right to a seat at the table as anyone else! Now that I know who I am and I’m living my truth so many doors are opening for me. This is something that one can truly be grateful for because when you know who you are, you are able to stand in your truth unapologetically and be able to invite others to partake with you. When we know who we are as individuals that is when we can build honest communities because everyone knows their role and there is no need to clash. What are your thoughts on loving yourself?
Obstacles to grace melt away?
Without resistance there is no growth.
How do you respond to obstacles? Or better yet, how do you respond to stress?
My therapist told me that emotions, especially negative ones, are nothing less than information. It is a gift to us to check how we respond to obstacles? When we lift weights, we are told that we must engage and give resistance to the muscle in order to bring change. I believe this can easily apply to our lives. In today’s meditation, they focused on the blocks that block the flow of gratitude. By taking a realistic look at ourselves and how we respond, we are able to apply the right amount of focus to change.
Nothing in this life is set in stone. We all have the ability to cope, respond in grace and change whatever it is we perceive as an obstacle or negative. I have found my perception has changed by engaging in this journey. I am becoming more connected with my true self and sometimes we have to deal with negative things about ourselves. However, by focusing on gratitude and looking at myself and other things through gratitude glasses I am able to start taking positive action to change my life. Sometimes we make things way to big and just think that things can’t change. Maybe there is truth in that but what we can control and change is ourselves. Life isn’t always roses and chocolate, sometimes life just stinks but that doesn’t mean we have to give into those negative emotions. Out of honor for ourself, we of course have to look at life with honesty. But we don’t have to stay there and build a house. Life doesn’t have to be difficult in order for it to be meaningful.
As you know, I am a believer and one of my favorite scriptures is when Yeshusa said ” I came so that you may have life and have it more abundantly. ” We don’t have to settle. We can change whatever isn’t working for us at anytime we choose.
This next question might seem harsh but it’s what I heard during today’s meditation.
Are you the reason your life sucks? Let that sink in. Don’t answer right away. If you feel that something could change and be better, get busy! We are the authors of our lives. Could you be in denial? Could you be in fear? Could you be stuck in selfishness? What is it that is blocking you from receiving your blessings? What is it that is stopping you from encountering grace? I have learned there is an unlimited source for gratitude. There are so many positive things to focus on. Let’s keep growing and stretching and if we feel uncomfortable, figure out what action needs to be taken to bring about change.
By now, I’m sure you have all heard the old saying ” what type of time is a gift? ” The answer is the Present.
But how many of us actually think of what is happening right now this very moment as a gift?
I know I personally struggle with this concept. Either I am stuck in my memories or caught up in my dreams. However, I instinctively know if I only could be present in the present, things could change? I have really been trying to accomplish this when meditating. It’s not a discipline that is learned overnight but it’s something that comes with patience and persistence.
I am really enjoying this meditation series because for me it is causing me to be more and more present in the right now moments. The present is for us because if we are fully in the right now moments we will experience connection, which will bring about more thankfulness and Grace. All of these things enrich our human experience helping us to relax, be more authentic and just go with the flow. Life can be full of challenges but if we are fully present and aware of ourselves we might be able to bend instead of break and flow instead of getting stuck. I remember my sister gave me a wonderful piece of wisdom that I would like to pass on because I feel it applies. She told me that I needed to become aware of the seasons of my life and once I connected with the season I was in I would know how to act. I believe that advice was straight from the Divine because when it is winter we are to be fully present in resting , in spring we plant, in summer we harvest, and in fall we prepare for winter.
How awful is it when we as humans are in our summer season but we treat it as if it is winter? Being present is a gift to us and those around us. When we are aware, every door is open and our senses are heightened.
I challenge you to began to evaluate your life and ask yourself “What season am I in?” Once you figure that out began to be thankful for it and act accordingly.
