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!

AS I SIT

As I sit, I carefully observe and pay attention to all that is around me. I pay honor and treasure my ability to listen, not insisting on talking.

As I sit, I allow myself to become an integral part of the whole. It’s awesome to have this feeling of being totally involved with the Universe.

As I sit, I hear the sounds of nature. Even while there is noise I can still hear the birds, their sound is ever present when I tune my hearing to them.

As I sit, I can sense the feelings of those around me. It is as if we are communicating on a soul level. No words need be spoken for me to connect with those around me. A glance, a nod or a smile is simply enough to acknowledge their presence.

As I sit, I am Thankful for this vast and massive Universe. I am Thankful to be alive in a time such as this.

As I sit, I listen intently to what is not being verbally expressed. I can hear the hearts of others. I can feel their emotions of both joy and pain; anger and excitement; fear and ecstasy. I am in alignment with their Spirit and it is a connection of souls relating to each other.

As I sit, I rejoice in my own being. I appreciate all that I have and all that I am. I rejoice knowing it is all a gift from the Creator!

As I sit, I become stronger and wiser. I allow the indwelling presence of Infinite Source to fill me to overflowing with goodness and mercy. The Grace of God restores my soul and my spirit.

As I sit, I remember to be ever Thankful all the time.

As I sit, I am gifted with Wisdom and Strength.

As I sit……..

 

VALUING THE JOURNEY

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Recently I had a most awesome and amazing opportunity to truly value the delays along my journey in life. I was flying standby into Los Angeles from Atlanta, on what happened to be the busiest day at Hartsfields Jackson Airport.

On the first flight out which is the preferred flight when traveling standby, the gate attendants did not call one single person that was on the standby list. We were instructed to go to the Customer Service counter and list ourselves on the next flight or a future flight. In summary I spent more than twelve hours on a wonderful Saturday at the Atlanta airport.

At the Customer Service counter I was asked if I just wanted to wait until the next day because all the flights were oversold for that day and it looked doubtful that I would be able to get on any of the remaining flights. I laughed and replied, “No, because my son dropped me off and he is taking his children camping for the weekend fifty miles away. He has the only other set of house keys and I did not bring my set. I have no way of getting back into my house!”  I smiled the entire time during this conversation. And to think my luggage was already en route. The agent was mystified that I was so undisturbed by the news.

I met so many wonderful and incredible individuals while spending the day at the airport. I fully participated in the whole airport scenario.  The thirteen hours were filled with delightful people and wonderful experiences. I would have never scheduled myself a day at the airport but I was truly blessed by the experience. I relaxed and embraced this entire episode of my life. I went with the flow of what was actually happening in my life and did not moan or wish it was something other than what it was.

It is not possible summarize these thirteen hours of amazing miracles in one day, although I have attempted to do so.  The story continues on tomorrow.

Enjoy wherever you are today fully and completely. Value Your Journey!!!

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.

NOISE POLLUTION

This is the last day of our month on Justice. And today we are concentrating on noise pollution. The noise pollution is not from the outside. We are discussing our own created noise pollution, our inner thoughts.  You know the noise pollution I am talking about, the I Can’t and I am not. Those are very toxic and polluting terms to be erased from your consciousness.

Silence the noise factor. So what if someone from a long time ago told you that you would never amount to anything, they just did not know your character. They did not truly know YOU! And maybe they thought they were being a positive influence for you. Bless them and thank them, for they appeared just as they should have come. Choose not to be led by those words and thoughts any longer. They did not tell you those things to hurt you but to thrust you forward. Change the memory tape that is playing in your mind. Determine it is now…ALL GOOD!

Change your language. Believe in yourself. Lift yourself UP! Use affirming thoughts and words. Build yourself UP! YES YOU CAN! Refuse to entertain thoughts of lack and limitation. They do not exist for you any longer. God’s Justice declares that you can and you will!!!

Fortify yourself. Flex your muscles of Faith, Strength, Courage and Wisdom. These are all tools for you to use each time you call upon them. So go ahead and scream, YES I AM READY FOR MY PERSONAL JUSTICE!         BE prepared to receive it. BE thankful for its manifestation in your life. Receive the gift of God’s Justice, making everything right just for you.

Justice is mine from this day forward. There is no turning back for me. I go forward welcoming and accepting Justice into every aspect of my life.

Thanks God for always, always being here just for me!!!!!

FREE STUFF

Do you ever get those emails promising you tons of free stuff only to find it requires you to answer a ton of questions? I find it hilarious and usually do not finish and therefore I never claim nor receive my free stuff.

But it made me think seriously about real Free Stuff! And my list got longer the more I thought about it. So here is my partial list:

  1. Peace of Mind – this is the best free gift that I can give myself. It does not cost anything except my desire to have it. When my attention is focused on Peace then that is exactly what I receive. Even while I was in the midst of some people who appeared determined to be dramatic and in a bad mood around me, I did not attempt to change them or remove myself from their presence. But in the midst of the drama I was smiling and felt this incredible Peace in me. It seemed the more I smiled the more dramatic they became. My smile was huge by the time this encounter was over!!!
  2. Harmony of Heart – I choose to be harmonious. I choose for my heart to be Joyous and happy. My heart is my lifeline and I protect it at all costs. I accept only harmony as my motivating force. I move in harmony with all life forms around me. There are a few cats that now roam my property. They just lounge on the lawn or in the drive way. I had never noticed them before now. But they are always around. I enjoy watching them stroll, never in a hurry. So they help me to slow down and relax. The cats are teaching me harmony at a mush deeper level.
  3. MY LIFE – This is the biggee! I say this as often as I can to remind myself and others of this awesome and incredible free gift of LIFE! Just think about it, what have you done to earn an extra day of living? What deeds do you think are required of you to live a longer life? I prefer to truly, truly appreciate the time that I am given and to live it to the fullest. My time on this planet earth may end today or tomorrow and one thing I know for sure, I have not wasted any of my life in regrets, sorrows or not exploring my potential and purpose. It keeps changing and so do I.

THE LIGHT

It is always darkest before the light, is a phrase I have heard many times before. In the darkness is where new life is formed and created. Do not be fooled by the darkness and think it will always be dark. The Light is just on the other side, it is the opposite of the darkness.

Some people give up while in the darkest of times. Perhaps they give up just before the dream is realized. Perhaps the dream is at its last stage of development and of becoming a reality. But if you give up too soon you will never know if the dream was possible. Believe it is always possible. It may not come when you think it should, but it will surely come into full manifestation. Hold on through the darkest hours. When you get to the point of almost being exactly where you want to be, please do not give up. Wait! Trust the process and garner all the Faith you can and keep going.

The Light is always shining, although sometime it may be hiding behind a cloud or other obstruction. The Light is where dreams are realized. The Light is the place you truly desire to be. Go to The Light. Do not become discouraged by a temporary dark spell. Something is growing in the darkness. Plants grow below the surface of the ground in complete darkness. Film is developed in a dark room into beautiful pictures. There is wonder in the darkness. We get to rest in the darkness.

Just as a new day is born from a night of darkness so will your hopes and dreams manifest for you out of the darkest hours. The darkness builds character and stamina, both qualities you will require in the pursuit of realizing your goals. Welcome the quietness of the dark times. Be kind and loving to yourself during this period of time. Your energy level may be low and needs to be replenished. This is good because you cannot function on high octane constantly. You require rest. Be grateful for all things, all the time.

THE LIGHT IS ALWAYS SHINING. You just might not be able to see it clearly with your human eyes.

THE PLAN

We all appreciate that businesses require a Business Plan and a Marketing Plan to be successful and to track their achievements. My nephew, Anthony A.K. King and I were having a discussion and as we talked he shared his passion of working with males in helping them to be successful in life. He had recently met with some young men who were seniors in high school and he asked them about their personal business plans for their life. The young men were caught off guard because even though they were high school seniors no one had ever talked to them about their personal life goals, their business plan.

So I pose the same question to you, what is your plan? Do you have a business plan that will guide you in getting to where it is you say you want to go or to the place you say you want to be? Do you fully embrace your plan? Can you easily recite it to anyone who asks you the infamous question, ‘What are you doing these days?’

What is your vision for your life? How will you get there?

Like the old saying goes; How do you eat an elephant? The answer is: One bite at a time. Do you know what your elephant is? Make the plans to proceed one bite at a time, set incremental steps to reaching your goals. Design your plan in truth and honesty. Please do not get caught up in someone else’s vision for your life. What do you truly desire in this life time? What will you truly do to accomplish what you say is important to you? How long do you want to take to get there? Understand that you are the master of this course. You obtain your doctorate degree at completion.

Is this the first time someone has even asked you this question? Then good, I am glad I am asking it! I applaud you at the finish line. I will be there at the graduation ceremony.
