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!!!

I ACCEPT NEW BEGINNINGS

May 22nd

 

I give thanks today for new beginnings. There is a miracle inside of each beginning. There is also a gift in newness.

 

In my expectation of a new beginning, I acknowledge I am required to accept endings. I must make room for the newness to enter my reality. I cannot hold two thoughts for the same thing. When my true desire is for newness to be manifested, there will be something that I am required to release. I do so graciously with love.

 

Are my thoughts in total alignment with my expectations? Perhaps it is time for me to release some old worn out beliefs about what I am entitled to receive in this life. Do I have a habit that prevents me from living the life I desire? I know I am to release it to allow the new beginning to take form and manifest. I gladly release without any attachments. There are no thoughts of lack and scarcity in my newness.  I am fully open to receiving all that my heart desires.

 

I allow goodness to flow into my life and affairs. I remove all blockages in my thoughts and words. I push towards the prize. I accept the gift of newness. A fresh beginning is mine.

 

I may mourn the leaving of something yet I trust I can and will survive. I choose to live totally in faith and trust the process of renewal. I willingly make room for new beginnings.

 

I accept new beginnings and I know that all things change. I can choose to accept that new beginnings are a natural occurrence. That each moment represents a new beginning and the moment that has just ended is gone forever. I can never again relive that same moment in time. I am grateful for my wisdom of discernment.

 

I am excited to accept New Beginnings.

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.

VISION AND ACTION

April 23rd

 

Just the same as Faith without action is not Faith at all; to have a vision and not take action is not your vision at all.

 

Now that you have your vision firmly implanted in your mind of minds and heart of hearts, what have you identified as the steps necessary to make your vision a reality for you? Your vision requires action on your part.

 

Do you need to perform research on the subject of your vision? Go to the library again and discover what it is you need to do to accomplish your vision. Ask for help if you have not been to the library in a long time. The library personnel are excited to help you locate all that you need.

 

Would you like a mentor in a particular field? Do your research to find who is the best in the field and contact them, ask them to serve as a mentor to you. It may take more than one communication from you to get an answer, but isn’t your vision worth the price? How about a visit to a business or profession you wish to explore? Make an appointment and go. Ask questions; always be professional in dress and manner.

 

Okay, so what is your next step? Do you have a plan of action, a guide to help you along the way? Always leave room for unexpected blessings from God. As you move forward in faith trusting your vision to manifest you will be gifted with unknown resources, guides and helpers along your way. It just works that way. As you move in a determined direction the Universe seeks to support you.

 

Live you vision. Believe it is already done, because it truly is. Talk about your vision, with like-minded high-energy people. Do not discuss with folks you know will boo-boo your ideas and dreams. Guard yourself, guard your vision. Give it your best by carefully considering with whom you will share the vision. Place as much positive energy around the realization of your goal, your vision as possible.

 

What are you doing today to realize your vision? Are your actions consistent with your thoughts? Are your thoughts consistent with your actions? Thoughts are actions as well. Think a New Thought if necessary.

 

Be Blessed in the wonderful fulfilling of your destiny. Be Encouraged in conquering your disbeliefs. Be Supported by Holy Spirit! Know it is done as you believe.

 

Give Thanks Always!!!

ACCEPTANCE


April 19th

 

I envision a world of pure, true acceptance of each living being into a family of absolute unity: A family that does not judge; a family whose lifeline is unconditional love, whose actions are based in truth.

 

I can create this masterpiece for humanity by my concentrated efforts of allowing every person I know and encounter to be them self. I contribute to the unity by my thoughts, words and actions. I surrender all need to judge people in any way.

 

I offer my best at all times. In this act I am always encouraging and offering support to others. I am compassionate towards others. I do whatever I can to make life more peaceful and enjoyable for each person that crosses my path. My journey is filled with wonderful opportunities for me to share from my place of goodness. That is all I choose to share with others.

 

The unity I desire to manifest is evidenced in my home first. My family is my priority and I choose kind and loving words to express my thoughts to each member. I encourage and support each task that is undertaken. When I can offer a helping hand I do so willingly.

 

I create acceptance and unity by focusing my thoughts, words and actions in positive affirmative ways. I see no separation between myself and others. I accept others by choice and conscious decision. I know, trust and believe we are all here at this appointed time to serve one another. To be of good cheer at all times is my goal.

 

I Thank God for giving me the opportunity to be a creator of this new world of Acceptance and Unity.

INTEGRITY

March 23rd

 

Living in integrity is an inside job. We must be completely honest with ourselves first.

 

I choose to live my life in complete integrity. I honor myself by telling myself the truth at all times. I think uplifting thoughts. I choose affirmative language while in self-talk.

 

Integrity means to speak in a kind and loving manner. Integrity means I have the obligation to myself to uplift me when I may be feeling down. Integrity means I am responsible for myself; no one else can do that for me.

 

I am honest and straight forward with me. I am getting better and improving every day. I may not be exactly where I desire to be but I know I am getting there. I may have things to work through, some unresolved issues or habits, yet I accept it is mine to resolve. I choose to tell the truth to myself. I can and do encourage and inspire me to new higher heights. I am a powerful, wonderful, loving, creative person. I am a deserving human, full of life.

 

I live in personal integrity without exception. I choose this course to be the best ME I can be. I am the creator of my life. I pray and meditate on those things which I desire to change. I follow the guidance given to me through my inner spirit.

 

As I master my personal integrity I interact with others in the same integrity. It may not be returned to me but that is not my responsibility. I choose integrity in my relationships with others.

 

Integrity……

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!!!

FORGIVENESS

sandyrodgeministries-logo

March 13th

 

The concept of forgiveness is one that has been misunderstood. I have heard people say, “I will forgive you but I will never forget!” We also have a tendency to think that forgiveness is about the other person.

 

To forgive is to release totally the person and the situation. Maybe that someone is you. Have you been beating up on yourself for not being smart enough, or not stopping a habit you think you need to? Do you think less of yourself because you do not weigh a certain amount? Not having that college degree feels like a handicap? Have you accepted something that you heard and believed about yourself that is weighing you down?

 

Forgiveness is all about YOU! Holding unto it can create illness and sickness to develop in your body. You can experience headaches, body aches and worse ailments. You are holding negative energy and it affects your overall health. Those negative emotions held over a long period of time will soon begin to attack your immune system. When your system is weakened you invite all sorts of dis-ease to enter and make a home in your body.

 

Hold the vision of complete surrender. Allow the person and the situation to be free of your attachment to it. It does not serve you in any healthful way. Release it now. Let it go forever. Never to be remembered by you again. If it pops back into your memory, RELEASE IT AGAIN AND AGAIN!

 

Say this with me, “I NOW ALLOW THIS FEELING TO LEAVE MY MIND AND MY BODY! IT IS FOREVER GONE. I REPLACE IT WITH LOVE, PURE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE!” Repeat this as often as it comes up for you. If this is a long standing issue it may take several times before you start to actually feel the negative move out of you. Please don’t lose Faith, just keep repeating the affirmation.

 

This works because I have used it to rid myself of resentment, bitterness and any other unloving thoughts and emotions I was holding. And what was so amazing is the majority of these feelings were thoughts I held about myself! I have learned to forgive myself for missing the mark, for not loving completely, for believing what some well-meaning person had to share with me about what they thought was my reality. So it is vitally important to begin this process NOW!

 

FORGIVE, FORGIVE, FORGIVE, FORGIVE, AND FORGIVE.

GIVE THANKS, GIVE THANKS, AND GIVE THANKS.

 

ALLOW LOVE TO SATURATE YOU THIS DAY!!!!!

GO WITH THE FLOW

sandyrodgeministries-logo

It is a beautiful sight to see fish swimming with the flow of the water. In a nursery rhyme it says, “Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream.” Watching a majestic waterfall cascading down a mountain is a wondrous sight.

 

These are examples of going with the flow. It would be unnatural to see a fish swimming against the current. It would probably lose all its energy and succumb to the enormous fete.

 

Are you going with the flow? Or are you fighting your way against the current? Are you doing what feels good and natural to you? Is your life a battle each day?

 

I choose to go with the flow! I am at my best when I am matched with situations and circumstances that match who I am. I no longer choose to force a situation to fit me rather I choose the situation that complements me and my life purpose. I determine the flow of my life.

 

I go with the flow of All Good, God, The Creator. I stay in the presence and protection of the Infinite One, The Source. I flow with Grace and Mercy, trusting the process of life and creation.

 

My way is made easy and joyous by following and going with the flow. I breathe life in the flow. I am relaxed and rejuvenated in the flow of existence.  I enjoy the flow.

 

I Go with the Flow!!!
