WHEREVER I GO

Wherever I go, I must be present. I must show up.

To fully appreciate any activity you must be totally present. For instance when I go into prayer and meditation, I do not allow anything to disturb me. The phone is taken off the hook, turned off or unplugged and I do not concern myself with who might want to call me during my daily ritual. There is absolute peace and quiet; just me and God, communicating.

Likewise when I go on the job to work that is what I give my attention to. I show up in grand style, always willing and willful to give my best. I do the work I am commissioned to do and receive pay for my services.

In my relationships I show up joyous and filled with appreciative love and acceptance for the person(s). This is my opportunity to give the best of me to the other person. I enjoy the relationships I have with others. I am learning from the exchange, I am growing as a result of this two way communication and dialog.

To each and every activity we engage we are required to just show up, to be present in the moment with the others that are involved. There are constant Blessings to receive when you are in this state of consciousness.

Today I show up in my best possible state of Peace and Harmony. I give my best at all times. I must show up to reap the benefits of being present. I accept there is always a gift awaiting my presence.

Wherever I may go I choose to be present. I show up in my best attire including an attitude of gratitude that I am able to fully participate in the exchange with someone.

I show up so God can show out, expressing through me.

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!

FAITH AND HOPE

April 27th

 

Faith is believing in the Power and Presence of God to be active and working on your behalf. Faith is knowing that God can and God will. Faith requires no physical evidence. Faith trusts the process of life and creation. Faith knows it is all possible when we believe.

 

I have Faith in the Omnipotent, Omnipresence of The Creator. My Faith propels me forward to achievements beyond my wildest imagination. Faith delivers me to new frontiers and allows me to serve as a living example of God’s promises being manifested. Faith opens doors of opportunity. Faith brings on my path all that is desired by me. Faith is a beautiful blessing. Faith soothes my soul and feeds my mind.

 

Hope offers an avenue to take when waiting for our goodness to reach us. We keep hope alive by remembering very deliberately that God is all there is. Hope is unselfish and all inclusive. Hope desires the best for everyone and everything. Hope is pure and clean.

 

Our choice today will include situations where we can exercise our Faith and Hope. Each task we take is a journey in Faith and Hope. We do not know nor can we see what is around the bend in the road. We can choose to reach our destination trusting in The Infinite Intelligence to guide and lead us.

 

We can hold a vision of Hope for World Peace and Unity. We can choose to offer Hope in our interactions with others. We can aide others in seeing a larger picture of possibilities.

 

I choose Faith and Hope as life partners on this journey of Life. I choose to believe and accept the Awesome Power of God working through every detail of my life. I have Faith and Hope for a better World. I hold Faith and Hope dear in my heart of hearts.

 

I give thanks to The Creator.

DEVOTION

March 12th

 

Devotion is described by Webster as a loyalty or deep affection.

 

So the question for you today is what do you honor with your devotion? Do you spend quality time in prayer and meditation? Do you still your mind and connect with Source? Do you allow yourself Peace and calm throughout the day?

 

I use my time in affirmative prayer. I surround my loved ones in love and harmony. I take time daily to reflect and give Thanks for all that I have, spiritually, emotionally, financially and physically. I am grateful for all of my experiences. I use my time constructively, thinking on those things I will manifest.

 

My devotion is dedicated to the Upliftment of all humanity. I pray without ceasing for world peace. I envision a world filled with peace and humility. I see the heads of state learning a new way of living. I see the leaders surrendering their need to be right and in control to a higher energy of cooperation and unity.

 

I devote my time to creating a better environment. I assist others in their quest for empowerment. I seek ways to encourage and motivate. I am a catalyst for change, inspiring transformation of myself and others.

 

I use my time in devotion to send the healing energy of compassion out into the cosmos. I think on thoughts of Peace and Love, Faith and Hope, Wisdom and Strength. My devotion is dedicated to creating an improved state of affairs worldwide.

 

My devotion is of healing, peace and renewal, acceptance and unity.

A GIVING CREATION

March 10th

 

We live in a giving environment. All around us is this action of giving fully and completely. We are given life, its substance of oxygen and breath is freely poured into us. Our hearts beat and pump the living element of blood throughout our temples. The very essence of survival is something we cannot purchase with money. It’s all a free gift!

 

The words, “I come that you may have life and have it more abundantly” rings loud in my consciousness. That promise is a free flowing gift. It does not indicate that there is any labor on our part to receive the gift. It says it is given to us freely without any conditions.

 

The plants such as fruits and vegetables give their life to us as nourishment in their dying. Their purpose is to give life. Yet they die so that we may live. It is their giving that we are supplied with nutritious food.

 

I choose to be a giving creature. I give freely of my love, honor, peace and happiness to all others. I choose to live in harmony with all life. I give of myself to the betterment of humanity.

 

When we each give freely of ourselves we create a ‘loving environment’ where each is living their purpose. In this environment all express their unique gifts as a contribution to the masses. We each give our part to create the whole. When one does not contribute, we all lose.

 

I choose to be a giver in a giving creation. I give by choice and through love. I give to complement the world community. I give by sharing my gifts.

 

As with all of nature, I give in my due season. My due season is now, this present moment in time.

GREATNESS

Columbine

The Universe is waiting on you. The Universe knows you and is patiently waiting for YOU to step into your Greatness! Now is the time to allow my Greatness to manifest. I am wide open to receive my Highest Good and Greatest Joy!

 

I am Thankful for my awareness of my Greatness. I willingly showcase my Greatness. I am honored to be gifted with Greatness. I bless others with my Greatness.

 

I demonstrate my Greatness in big and small ways. I am courteous to others. I am compassionate with others. I am true to myself. I am growing in my Greatness every day. I feed myself positive affirmations about me. I know and trust I am doing my best at all times. I send peace and harmony out into the airwaves knowing that they return to me multiplied. My life is increased in measures I cannot comprehend.

 

My Greatness is awesome. I am awesome. I live my Greatness each day. As I allow myself to fully accept my magnificence, my Greatness expands. It expands out and touches all that is around me. In this way I affect a giant tidal wave of Greatness to flood the world all around me.  I am excited about my Greatness.

 

My Greatness is like an avalanche that covers everything in its path.

 

I give Thanks. I Thank God! I thank all of the Masters! I thank my Angels. I thank my Ancestors! I thank my family! I thank my friends! My Greatness is shown in my appreciation for all who has added to my existence. In this way my Greatness touches generations past, present and future with sincere gratitude.

LIFE

SAM_0204

It is often said that death teaches us about living. For it tells us that this phenomenal precious commodity is only temporary. How do you live your life?

I choose to be of service to all of humanity, not just those who agree with or look like me in some way. I choose to accept and respect the differences between myself and others. I trust the Infinite One to have placed each person who enters my path there for a reason, a season and/or a lifetime. I handle each as if there for a lifetime. I do not want to miss any part of what I am to receive. And if only there for a short reason or season I will always remember them for a lifetime.

I live my life today, building and leaving a loving memory to those I encounter. I give my best to them in integrity and truth. I treasure who they are and that they have graciously appeared on my path.

How will you choose to live your life? The answer is only one that you can provide. You cannot look to others to answer that for you. You have sole dominion over your actions and words. We cannot say ‘they made me do it’ or ‘if it wasn’t for them I would have’ or even ‘they hurt me’. Yes it is your responsibility to rule your life. What appears in your life is exactly what you alone have created. Others come to teach you, remind you what you already know.

I choose to live my life; I choose to live this very day, in integrity. I choose to live in and by complete and total acceptance of all others. I choose to honor, cherish and love unconditionally.

What memory do you choose to leave when you make that transition from this physical form?

IT’S A BRAND NEW DAY

SAM_0204

This is a brand new day. Yesterday is finished and tomorrow is yet to unfold. What will we do with this gift?

I choose to live this day to its fullest. No regrets, no would’ve or should’ve are allowed. Today I give my 100% attention to each activity I undertake. Today is well lived by me.

This day I set priorities based on what I have determined to be of importance to me. Today I release. Today I embrace. Today I Am my Best!

It’s a brand new day. I will show more compassion. I will demonstrate unconditional love. I will honor and respect all others. I live this day in complete integrity.

Today I know, I AM A CHILD OF GOD! I declare my worth is priceless! I deserve and willingly receive abundance and prosperity! I AM HEIR TO THE KINGDOM!

It’s a brand new day. I appreciate Life. I give Thanks. I am made new. I am filled with JOY! I am excited and enthusiastic! I am grateful!
THANKS GOD, IT’S A BRAND NEW DAY

FREE HUGS

SAM_0204

During the busy holiday shopping days, my friend Joyce and I visited a shopping center to buy some books. The shopping center was crowded with holiday shoppers. We went about our business, not really concerned about anything in particular. As we left the book store there were several folks walking through the center with huge posters saying “Free Hugs”. I did not see them because my attention was in getting out of the crowd. However Joyce saw them and was excited to see them. She received their free gift! Joyce called to me and said “Sandy you must not have seen them.” As I turned around I witnessed the most awesome site I had seen the entire season. Several beautiful people Smiling so brightly, they lit the entire atmosphere with Love and Acceptance. Indeed I wanted my hug. I was quickly embraced with genuine Love, the hug felt like magic. It calmed me down and allowed me to reflect on the goodness of life and of this season in particular. It is an experience I will always remember. So while in the midst of confusion there is always room for expressions of LOVE!

Today, I choose to give Free Hugs! It may not be physical hugs. It can be sending Love through the cell phone lines. It can be holding a person in prayer. It can be totally absorbed in positive, life affirming thoughts about myself and others. It can be finally releasing an unloving incident with forgiveness and replacing it with thoughts of love. It can be whatever I choose it to be.

I am giving Free Hugs today! I send LOVE out into the Universe. I am sending Peace energy to everyone, those I know and those I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet. I am sending the energy of Compassion. I send thoughts of pure JOY!

How many Free Hugs will I be able to give out today?
