STRETCH

The voice whispers to me, “GO BEYOND YOUR SELF IMPOSED LIMITATIONS. There is great work to be done. You are only partially there. Yes go beyond your comfort level. STRETCH.”

This is a tall demand from the Universe. We stay in our comfort zones for exactly that reason, it is our comfort zone. Then comes a nudge, a gentle reminder that more is required of you. And what do you do? Well we can either stretch and see great rewards or we can stay in that little known zone of comfort and no growth. What is funny is that even when our comfort level is filled with pain and confusion we would rather stay than to do something different. This is probably true for most if not everyone.

We have a habit we would like to discontinue. We know the benefits in adopting a new life style but we stay in it anyway. It has nothing to do with the power of the habit. It is us that refuse to change our actions. This is truly funny and I see myself in this analogy.

On New Year’s Day we allow ourselves to stretch in declaring new changes for the upcoming year. There are studies done to reveal how many never get past the first day of their resolutions. I know I have done it. Have vowed to lose weight or work out daily only to wake up the next morning and put it off yet again! And it is hilarious.

The only solution is to be comfortable in allowing the action of stretching. Notice the little things where you allow yourself to stretch. Perhaps this is in thinking a new thought, of discarding former negative ideas about things. Maybe you did not get upset with someone who has in the past annoyed you. Let us learn to celebrate the little stretches that we accomplish and learn this new action. As we learn we will get better and build our capacity to stretch even further. Who knows maybe it is as easy as just doing it.

I will keep you supported, please do the same for me. I want to stretch!!!

 

BLENDING

Blending is a gradual process of mixing several ingredients together to become a new mixture. Sometimes it involves liquefying, sometimes chopping and grinding. Regardless of the action required, the result is always the same, several ingredients thoroughly combined together to become a unique new creation of oneness.

As I witnessed the marriage of one of my nephews this thought became crystal clear as it pertains to families or any other ‘mixture’ of people. The different individuals, personalities are all combined to create something new and different.

I watched the youth blending together to create what appeared as one massive unit. They became a blur of unity. All you could see were smiles. All you could feel was harmony. They simply knew how to include each other and blend into having a great time. Teaching and learning from each other the various dance steps. They allowed each other space and time to showcase their individual talents.

As the young adults and elders joined in, it grew and became a larger blur of unity. No one paid attention to age, race, height or weight. No concern was given to a person being on the dance floor without a partner because everyone was their partner.

The finished concoction was a perfect blending of not only two families but of multiple families. Each had come prepared to add their spice to this celebration of two wonderful souls who had vowed to blend into one unit; A Beautifully Blended Body of Oneness!

AWESOME

It is an awesome feeling to always present your self expressing exactly who you are in totality. It is extremely rewarding to know that your purpose; your gifts are to be freely shared with others; that your best is always sufficient.

Self satisfaction is the result. To feel you constantly give the best you is exhilarating. It is a high, like none other. You get to marvel at how well you demonstrate your uniqueness. There is no need to pretend or compromise. Great Wisdom is displayed when you stand firm in your Truth.

And when others acknowledge you, it only adds to what you already feel. To know that what you alone bring to share with the Universe is appreciated gives you great pleasure at a soul level.

You can smile deep as you Thank God for gifting you with Life! Joy is deeply imbedded in your core. You remain humble and obedient to your call. Even as you are unsure of others acceptance, you inhale the spiritual faculty of Faith and step out.

A prayer goes out asking for guidance and you proceed. There may be times when the answer to your prayer is so spontaneous that consciously you are not aware that you sent a prayer out. This can happen as you become steadfast in always desiring the best for yourself and others. Each thought is a prayer and you now choose your thoughts carefully. The answer is automatic and you trust and know that your thoughts (prayers) are quickly manifested.

You are awesome!!!

You are unique!!!

You are beautiful!!!

You are God’s gift to the Universe!!!

YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!

HAPPY 18th BIRTH DAY!!

FIRST DRIVING LESSON

I joyously celebrate this day which is the anniversary date that my granddaughter, Deja Tyson, made her physical entrance into this world. She embodies the wisdom of the Ancestors and has proudly demonstrated this. She has been a teacher to most that have had the opportunity of meeting her. She simply uses her gifts and goes about her business doing what she does.

The summer she turned two, I took her and my grandson on a road trip across the U.S. We spent two months traveling, stopping in several states to visit with family. People were amazed when they discovered she was not two yet because she was speaking in complete, logical sentences. She was paying attention whenever someone would ask how old she was. My response was she will be two on August 2nd. So after awhile when the question was asked she would answer the person and they would just smile. Out of the mouth of this little person came the answer, “I will be two on August 2nd”.

Deja is intuitive, artistic and creative. She demands the best from herself at all times. Her parents feel she puts too much pressure on herself by doing this and to date she continues with expecting the best from all her actions, especially in school.

At age six she joined me in hosting a group of twelve dynamic sisters whom I had gathered to discuss our collective efforts in creating a better society. She helped prepare the treats and was given the assignment of greeting each lady as they arrived. When the meeting started she was actively involved and included as introductions were made. Little did I know that as the meeting progressed she was sitting there taking notes from the discussion! Her minutes were complete and accurate! Be mindful of what you are teaching the babies as they emulate what you are doing.

Celebrate the life of those little ones today, perhaps your own children or grandchildren. Celebrate their unique gifts to the world. Help to enhance their creativity. Help them by showing them a better way. Do not allow foolishness to be their only experience.

AMAZEMENT

 

August is the month of amazement. Carefully look into, check out and investigate all the wonders of life. We move so quickly some times that we may forget how incredible things are.

This month slow down a bit and truly witness the beauty that is all around you, even in the little things. Stop for a moment and feel the sensation of the blood that flows through your veins. This gift of life does its job without any effort on your part; it just does what it is designed to do.

Pay attention to your breath. Do you breathe fully in and exhale completely out? Or is your breathing rushed and/or shallow? Can you allow yourself to inhale deeply, taking in the wonder of life? Go ahead and breathe in very slowly, enjoy this feeling of allowing yourself to appreciate the gift of breath. Now exhale, let it all out. Relax and take another deep breath. Notice how you breathe. Be grateful for this gift of oxygen.

Have you ever noticed how a wound will heal itself, even when you do not place a bandage on it? That is a gift as well. Your body can and will heal itself because it is designed that way. God took precious care in creating the human, making sure that it was a perfect specimen, fully capable of restoring itself to wholeness when injured.

Then there is the amazing fact that you can change your thoughts at any time you decide. You are not stuck into one way of thinking, unless you are unwilling to exercise that privilege.

It is simply amazing how incredible God has created everything especially the human being, the highest form of life. Pay deliberate attention to the details and the movements and motions of life.  Notice how amazing life truly is and celebrate the Goodness of God!

ASK NO QUESTIONS

While attending an awesome fundraising concert at 12 Stone Farm I was blessed with not only great music and fellowship but I witnessed something that was truly amazing to me.

There was a storm approaching. The people there felt the winds blowing stronger and the sky changing colors but we kept doing what we were doing. Then suddenly in unison all the horses galloped to safety under some trees. They did not ask each other, “Well do you think it’s going to rain?” or “What did the weather person predict for today?” Instead they instinctively knew it was going to be a down pour of rain and immediately they sought shelter. The rains came down hard, soaking the ones who were out in the fields with the horses or talking with one another outside of the shelter that was provided.

Instinctively the horses knew and they followed their instinct. Several of the participants that were paying attention commented on the movement of the horses. We laughed and said, ‘Horses are smarter than people!’ It was truly a sight to see. Together they all dashed to safety with no questions asked.

Just for today do not hesitate by stopping to ask questions. Do not ask yourself or someone else, ‘Do you think I should do this?’ or any other question. When you feel deep inside of you that you are being divinely led, just go or do what you are being led to, just do it.

The horses were a wonderful reminder to me that we all have this incredible gift and power within us. However many of us refuse to pay attention or heed to the prompting by Holy Spirit and we miss our opportunity of a Blessing.

Today follow that inner gut feeling and be led to Miraculous Blessings.

Ask no questions!

JOY – JOY

This has been a fabulous month. JOY has been our motivation and our focus. JOY has spread out from you to the entire world. I can see and feel your Light shining and lighting the path for yourself and others.

JOY is a small word with tremendous power. JOY is the perfect antidote for all ills suffered by humanity. When we stay centered in JOY we place a barrier around us; a shield of protection from negativity and all of its kin folks.

JOY, what a terrific feeling to experience. Knowing it is available to me at my beck and call is amazing. No one else has to be around for me to feel JOY. I do not need to call someone to bring it to me. I already have it and that is wonderful. It is mine and I treasure its gift to me.

JOY is the morning dew that falls gently upon the lawn. JOY is the birds singing at dawn telling me it is yet another bright beautiful day to live and be alive. JOY is whatever you desire for it to be that brings you pure bliss and unconditional love. JOY is hope for a better environment. JOY is World Peace. JOY is total forgiveness and acceptance.

JOY is the cornerstone of the foundation of my life.

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY

 June 20th

I am expecting a tidal wave of JOY to flood me today! I express and experience the fullness of life this day!

I allow JOY into my affairs. I accept JOY as a natural expression of everything. This day I declare: It is ALL JOY!

I turn the little things into Big JOY! I receive JOY with wide open arms of acceptance. Bring me the JOY. Show me the JOY!

It is like being in the ocean at the beach as a little child for the first time. You may be afraid to see that big wave coming. It may even frighten you when you get soaked by that first big wave of water because it will surely knock you down. But what is so fascinating is the fact that you are now more excited than ever before and welcome the next big wave. The big wave is all you want!

That is exactly where I am today. All I want is the Big Wave to hit me, to soak me, to drench me with pure, unadulterated, unconditional LOVE, PEACE and JOY!

I allow myself to ride the huge waves of Bliss and Contentment; of Harmony and Justice; of Acceptance and Forgiveness; of Excitement and High Vibrational Energy!

Today is my day, it’s my birthday. I Am experiencing a completely satisfying Tidal Wave of JOY!

CELEBRATE GOODNESS

Let us celebrate all that is good and very good. Let us keep our attention on the vastness of The Almighty.

Goodness is everywhere present. There is goodness in life and living. There is goodness in creation and recreation. There is goodness in death. There is goodness all around us every day.

There is JOY all around when you decide to notice it. Gradually more and more of my personal friends are telling me how incredible it has been for them to begin noticing the goodness that has been around them all the time that they had not noticed before. Like sitting at a pool of water and first only seeing the water in the pool but by consciously expanding their vision to include other objects soon they saw the trees, birds and finally the sky and clouds being reflected on the water.

Goodness is often not thought of when you talk about death or transitions but there is beauty and goodness in that person’s life. A wise elder once told me that as long as we call and say the person’s name they are never dead. So I talk fondly of all the wonderful souls that have blessed me with their presence for how ever long it was. When I catch myself doing something that reminds me of that person I remark to them how much I miss their physical presence but love that they are in my heart forever. Spirit never dies.

Goodness is all around us. We may need to do an adjustment on how we perceive something but the fact remains it is All Good All The Time!

Today celebrate all the goodness in your life! Be Thankful! Be mindful of your many Blessings! You are Goodness in Human form!!!
