PAY ATTENTION


For clarification on this terminology, Webster’s Dictionary has been used.

Pay – to give to what is due; to give in return for what is received; to give due compensation; to be profitable; to settle; to give. Notice how many times the word – give – comes up in the various descriptions.

Attention – mental concentration or readiness; notice or observation; care or consideration; an act of courtesy or devotion.

Where do you give your mental concentration or to what do you give your consideration? Are you focused on all the good that life has to offer you? Do you remain in a state of Thanksgiving for each lesson on your path? Where is Faith in your equation?

I declare this day to Pay Attention to the amazement of Life! I sincerely appreciate each and every living thing. I choose this day to celebrate the Life Force that circulates in each breathing animal. I Pay Attention to all that is around me this day.

I Pay Attention to my family members, I celebrate each one for their uniqueness and presence.  I take the extra moment to demonstrate my gratefulness to them. I say Thank You with a huge smile and sincerity. I show them I Love them unconditionally.

I Pay Attention to those I interact with on a regular basis. I treasure their gift to me. I share from a place of wisdom, integrity and harmony.  I give my best to the good of all involved.

I Pay Attention to my needs today, I satisfy those things I declare I desire manifested in my life. I scrutinize my thoughts and pay careful attention to what I am entertaining. I Pay Attention to my heart and fill it with Joy, Peace, Gratitude, Love, Harmony and Passion.

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.

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.

MEMORIES

What are you depositing into the bank of your soul’s memory?

Are you ensuring happiness is there? If not, bring more pleasure into your existence. Create happy moments with friends and family. Create opportunities that allow you to smile when you look back over your life. Today is the perfect time to begin manifesting those happy moments. Do something today that you will remember with fondness.

Is fulfillment an ingredient in your memory? Are you truly living the life you desire? Doing what you like is necessary to your soul being filled full. Is there a new skill you would like to learn and have put it off? Do it now.

Memories of satisfaction can create such warmth when you are going through a low period in life. You can summon up those memories and feel the same satisfaction as when the event first occurred.

Does your memory bank account contain adequate amounts of contentment? Have you given all that you would like to the improvement and betterment of society? Can you perhaps look for ways to become more active in your community? Service to others is always a sure way to feel the emotion of contentment.

Today I carefully choose activities that will add value to my memory bank. I create for myself a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. I store in my memory bank thoughts of happiness and contentment.

I will look back on my life and smile, knowing that I gave as much to the Universe as it gave to me.

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!!!

THE HEART

May 23rd

 

By definition, the heart is the central, vital or main part; core; the center.

Consider this definition: at heart – in one’s innermost nature, or heartfelt – sincere, genuine.

 

What are you allowing to reside in your core? What emotions are controlling your vital part? What state is your innermost nature in?

 

Today I consciously choose to flex the muscles of my Heart with acceptance and unconditional love. I exercise with God and follow the routine of displaying harmony and justice to all. I know that the more I use and exercise this heart muscle the greater and stronger it becomes. I am building this muscle into the awesome power it is. As I loosen the tightness of negative emotions and unforgiveness my heart is freed and feels joyous. The muscle relaxes and operates in sheer bliss, knowing it has absolutely nothing to fear. Love conquers all and fills every space of my heart.

 

I offer heartfelt appreciation for all that has been given to me through God. I sing praises to The Most High. The Creator is my Source. My heart sings songs of gratitude and thanksgiving.

 

God is my center, thus is and in my heart at all times. I choose to demonstrate love in all interactions. Love is my only choice when I consider God is IN my heart expressing through me at all times.

 

My heart is filled to overflowing with God’s Grace and Mercy. I satisfy myself first. Then, I pour from my overflowing cup to others. I provide a wonderful beverage in their time of thirst. I offer a drink from my cup because I know that my cup is continuously being refilled by The Master. My cup is always overflowing.

 

Thanks God for filling me up! Thanks God for my wonderful Heart. I keep it in excellent condition by daily exercising it with complete love for myself and others. Thanks God. Thanks God. Thanks God.

ALLOWING

May 7th

 

Allowing is a form of submission. Allowing is neither controlling nor manipulative. Allowing is acceptance. Allowing is freedom from attachments to the outcome. Allowing simple is going with the flow.

 

Today I allow Life to flow gently around, about and through me. I allow myself to be free of restrictions and constraints. I allow myself to be joyous and loving. I allow myself to live in harmony with the entire Universe. I simply allow.

 

I allow you to be exactly who you are. I accept you completely without any definition or pre-judgments from me. I allow myself to see God in you. I allow the God in you to see me.

 

I am at peace in this state of allowing. I am freed from forcing my perceptions on anyone or anything. It is as it is. It is what it is. In allowing I concentrate my energies on Higher Consciousness. I allow the goodness of Holy Spirit to penetrate my actions, words and deeds. I am in the ever present, all-knowing Intelligent Mercy of The Creator.

 

Allowing gives me joy. I am no longer burdened with having to figure out what or how I am to act or respond. I allow everything to unfold as it is destined to do. I accept I am not in a position to control. My responsibility is to simply allow The Infinite to work in and through me and others.

 

As I allow I am relaxed and in harmony with the rhythm of nature. For each creature allows the other to be what and who they are. Watch them and see. Its amazing for me to watch the squirrels, chipmunks, cats, birds and rabbits all cohabitate in my backyard. They just move around each other, giving each other space and room to roam and be exactly who they are.

 

Today, practice allowing. Just breath deeply, exhale and ALLOW!

GOOD SPIRIT

April 21st

 

Are we there yet? How is your indwelling Spirit today? Actually the question is where are you in relationship to your Good Spirit?

 

We are never separated from our Creator; Holy Spirit. We may have a tendency to behave in a manner that is unlike our Source; Infinite Intelligence, however we are always connected. We may want to do or act in a way that tells others we belong to that group, while feeling deep inside of us a disconnection from God. We are sometimes cast into relationships to help and other times to simply learn a lesson from the situation. As we allow ourselves to fully participate we will know the answer in our due time. Nothing happens by chance. Be ever mindful of your Spirit.

 

I can choose to consistently be in Good Spirit. It is a choice I make freely and without any hesitation. My Good Spirit is a healing balm to so many around me. It also soothes me. Just to relax in the comfort of The Source. It is almost like being back in the womb of your mother. All your needs are provided for and you have no worries. The Joys of a Good Spirit are awesome.

 

I release all that may hinder me from enjoying a Good Spirit connection. I may be required to loosen some conditions that I thought I needed to be a complete person. I may even find myself in new arenas of work or of enjoyment. When we surrender to the Will of God, the blessings are too numerous to count and too incredible to be limited by our imaginations.

 

I have as my constant companion, Good Spirit! We are bosom buddies traveling everywhere together as a dynamic duo. My buddy got my back, my front, my sides, my top and my bottom. I Thank You God for helping me to realize that every thing great and small is already provided for me. I Thank God that I can feast from the Great Storehouse of All Good. My Spirit is replenished and restored. I dine with Good Spirit and am filled to capacity.

FLAWLESS FLOW

April 3rd

 

Flawless is defined as without any cracks; no blemishes; whole and complete. Flow is to pour out. Just imagine God at work in your life, gifting you with Life that represents a Flawless Flow! WOW! I had to just breathe that in for a moment, Flawless Flow by God! What a magnificent vision.

 

God has given us every thing we require to live an abundant and prosperous life. Are we ready to receive it, knowing that it is our birthright? The Kingdom is ours! The fullness of the earth is ours! Riches of every kind are ours! These are the promises given to us. I stand ready to accept and receive my good. How about you?

 

We must tend to any blockages that are in the way of this flow from God. Is there any negative energy that is dwelling in your thoughts or heart?  Do you seek a higher way in interacting with others? Do you honor who you are, right where you are? Are you waiting for that one thing to make you more complete? Well I am here to tell you that you need not wait any longer. God said YOU ARE WORTHY AND DESERVING…RIGHT NOW!

 

You must know that is true in the deepest crevices of your being. You must believe that God’s promises are true. When we have accepted that right here, right now, exactly as we are is perfect to The Creator then we can move forward in complete confidence. We are the ones who choose to judge; not Allah, God, The Source. You are a perfect expression period.

 

As we move in this knowingness of energy the Flawless Flow can go to work in our lives because we are expecting it to. We only concentrate on that which we desire and nothing else. We focus our entire energy on creating our perfect life because we know that honors our Creator. We have abundance manifesting in our lives. A rich life is our inheritance. I declare and accept God’s Flawless Flow NOW!

PEACE

March 17th

 

Just typing that word brought me so much comfort. To think on Peace is soothing, refreshing and calming. Peace Be Still! Oh how that touches me with assurance that everything is already okay.

 

I picture Peace in my mind. I think on Peace. I speak Peace.

 

For me the picture of Peace is like when you are a small child and you can create make believe friends that always like and accept you. It’s like writing down your Christmas list allowing yourself to dream big and ask for exactly what you want, knowing you will receive it. It is knowing no fear, simply trusting.

 

Oh Sweet Peace. It is like sweet nectar to the taste. It is like a beautiful melody sang by the birds early in the morning. It is like watching a wondrous sun rise with all of the intoxicating colors. Peace is restful slumber at the end of a busy day.

 

I see a world that experiences and enjoys Peace as the natural element in human affairs. Peace is the stimulant that the leaders drink as they go into discussion on world events. Peace is the meal that is eaten and digested by the hungry participants. Peace reigns supreme as the desert that compliments the meal.

 

Peace! Oh what a wonderful and powerful word! I choose to experience Peace in my body, in my mind and in my affairs. Peace is my new name.

 

I choose to celebrate Peace today! Peace radiates from me to the Universe.

 

 

SWEET, SWEET PEACE!!!
