I FORTIFY MYSELF!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I fortify myself. I define who I am. I am responsible for my life experiences.

I seek knowledge by learning from various teachers which includes all of nature, small children, elders of the community, religious leaders, and newly acquired friends sometimes referred to as strangers.

I accept full responsibility for my growth and expansion. It is my work to do. As I allow myself to increase, I am gifted with amazing results. I do not limit the subject matter, I am open to receiving all information. I am a master at discerning what is appropriate for me. All else is eliminated from my consciousness.

I fortify myself with pure beauty. In the appreciation of beauty in the forms of nature, I can see the beauty in the person I have become. Yes, I have grown through and learned some powerful lessons in life. Oh Thanks God for those wonderful opportunities in which I have grown and blossomed into this magnificent human expression.

I fortify myself with Truth. The Truth of who I AM is a child of God. I know I Am an offspring of the Awesome Incredible Source that has created everything. I am honored by Holy Spirit, fully entitled to enjoying all the vastness of the Universe. The Truth is, I can have All that I declare! The Truth is, I Am created in Goodness and I Am whole and complete. The Truth is, my life has meaning and purpose. The Truth is, I Am Abundantly Prosperous in Health, Wealth and Relationships. I can soar like an Eagle when I choose to. The Truth is, it is my sole duty to recognize my power and to fully express it.

I Fortify Myself from this day forward with JOY knowing that I Am who I say I AM!

HELP!!

Where is your focus, on the problem or the solution?

When focused on the problem you become constricted and rigid. You begin to tighten up, your thoughts and then your body. All you continue to see is the problem. There is no way out for you. The problem appears to get bigger and bigger, it consumes all of your rationale thinking.

When you pay attention to the solution you open yourself up to wondrous opportunities, suggestions and ideas. As you look and concentrate on solutions, they appear. Things you may have never thought of before comes to mind for you. The resources begin to arrive in perfect time. People are ready and eager to help, they have been waiting for you to recognize their gift to you.

Focus on, without becoming totally attached to the outcome, to the solution. Perhaps there is something much, much grander in store for you. By staying with thoughts of a solution you are willing to entertain ideas outside of the customary boundaries you would have placed on yourself.

Get a clear and concise picture of what you want to materialize. Do not judge your thoughts. Dream and visualize the best possible solution.

Next go into prayer and communication with God. Ask God for help in clarifying what it is that you desire manifested. Ask for guidance with the details. Be very specific with your requests. And wait for your divine answers. If you are unsure, ask God again. God will make it very plain for you so there is no misunderstanding of the direction you should take.

The final step is being Thankful for the resolution. As each step unveils itself, be Thankful. Offer praise for your answers along the way. Thankfulness opens the doors of possibility!

GET INTO HEAVEN BEFORE YOU DIE

 

As I was sharing in conversation with my Godmother, Mother Elnor Abdullah who was a young 88 years, the following came up for discussion.

We must be about the business of discovering Heaven while we are still living this life. There is no need to wait and hope that death will bring us to a place of peace. Perhaps you will take with you to the other side exactly what you have created on this side. We can create that state of Heaven now.

We can create a place of Unconditional Forgiveness and Love. We can create a space of Complete Acceptance and Respect of others. We can build relationships built on Mutual Honor and Admiration. We can have Peace and Joy right now and right here on earth.

A state or an attitude of Heaven is being in a Higher Consciousness of who we are. We are the offspring of the Most High Creator. We are made in the image and after the likeness of Infinite Intelligence. Jesus said He came that we would have life and have it more abundantly.

Heaven is where we extend a helping hand to others in their time of need. Heaven is where we choose to honor the life of humans regardless if they look like us or not. Heaven is seeking and maintaining Peace in all situations. Heaven is being about God’s business, protecting and preserving all life forms. Heaven is a state of Consciousness that tells us we can.

Heaven is that serene place of comfort. Heaven is being a comforter and encourager to others. Heaven is pure and seeks after its own kind. Heaven is knowing your connection to God is real. Heaven is Love at the highest level of expression.

Heaven is my preferred place of residence here on earth.

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.

MIRACLES EVERYWHERE

May 13th

 

Miracles are everywhere I am. I am a miracle, formed from a microscopic organism. I have grown into a fully functioning adult human. My parents did directly affect my growth, and my life is a miracle. I am one of God’s Masterpieces. All around me are miracles unfolding, from morning to night miracles never cease to happen. I appreciate the abundance of miracles which add to my life.

 

I observe miracles all around me and I remain thankful for their presence. I am constantly reminded that miracles are spontaneous movements of life. All things are formed through the force of creation.  Miracles cannot be explained or defined. Miracles are random acts of The Creator which reminds us there is a Power greater than ourselves that exists in the Universe. This Creative Energy simply is and cannot be limited to human interpretation or understanding. Miracles are God’s handiwork.

 

God is the manufacturer of Miracles, so how then do we attempt to explain them. It’s like the evolvement of a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. To me that is indeed a miracle. Or how does the seasons know exactly when to cooperate in harmony with each other to change and offer us with wondrous colors. Or how does an unborn human know how to develop into a fully developed baby that can survive outside its mother’s womb? To me these are all wonders which cannot be limited to the Seven Wonders of the World. These are all miracles.

 

I look at each part of nature and I call it a miracle. I take absolutely nothing for granted. It is God’s craftsmanship that has caused these things to be, exactly as they are. I witness with careful vision all miracles in life itself.

 

Yes Miracles are Everywhere.

A MONTH OF MIRACLES

May 1st

 

May is a month to accept miracles as a part of our expectations. That which we expect will manifest for us. I accept an abundance of miracles to be manifest in my life!

 

Miracle is defined as an event or action that apparently contradicts known scientific laws; a remarkable thing.

 

The Universal Omnipotent Creative Source is ready to bless you with Miracles! The size of the Miracle depends largely upon you. What you think about and concentrate on is what will be produced in your life. You are already blessed with the Miracle of Life. For Life itself is beyond scientific explanation. For how do you explain this wonderfully crafted vessel we call a human body. Scientists are continually finding out new things about the human body. And probably until the end of times will these highly intelligent individuals be searching for all the answers as to what truly makes us operate the way we do.

 

I am expecting Miracles to be manifested in my life! I give Thanks every single day for this gift of Life. My first response to waking is Thankfulness that I was granted yet another day to live and breath; to live a brand new experience; to fully love all that is within me and around me. I give Thanks that I remain aware that all of everything is a Miracle that The Most High has created to bless me with. I give Thanks for I know, trust and believe that I do not do it alone! God is always with me, guiding and protecting me, that is Miracle enough to sustain me.

 

My Miraculous Provider is Awesome! I give Thanks for the Remarkable Presence and Power that gives me LIFE! I Am a Miracle! I Am a living Miracle! I Am a Loving Miracle!!! Thanks God!

FOLLOW UP

April 25th

 

This month is dedicated to abundance.

 

Are you doing and giving your best to following up? Has an opportunity been given to you and all you need to do is follow up? Do not allow procrastination to rob you of achieving your goals. The situation or person is waiting on you to show up so that you can be blessed. Receive your blessing today, take action and be rewarded.

 

You took the first step and more is required of you. Remember to follow through until you reap the benefits of your goal manifested into reality. You are almost there so please do not stop now. Just one more step, one more action on your part. It is right in front of you aching to be summoned.

 

I choose this day to always follow up in a timely manner. I am grateful for the many blessings coming my way. I show my appreciation by acknowledging the gift. I remain conscious of my choices and stay on the course that leads me to the place I desire to be. I can. I will. My attitude is of success and achievement.

 

I have prepared myself for a time such as this. I have completed the basics and ready to move forward in my progression. I give thanks daily during my still time, alone with God. As I meditate on the wonders of life I know and accept my dreams are part of the overall picture of existence. It is my work to do and no one can do it but me.

 

I create abundance in my life by consistently following up and following through. I trust the process of life and creation and know everything unfolds in its divine time and order. I do my part the best I know how by allowing integrity to be my constant guide.

 

I follow up and follow through because this is the natural way of my being. I receive Abundant Blessings Overflowing in and through my life.

PEACE AND LOVE

April 20th

 

I choose to express Love at all times. I choose to shower Love on all situations and conditions that do not appear as loving. I can and do make a positive difference by insisting all my actions are predicated in Love.

 

The Peace I have is non-negotiable. Peace is a gift from The Creator, it resides in your inner most being, your inner sanctuary. Peace is a permanent state of mind. I do not voluntarily give away my Peace. My Peace is a prized possession and I truly treasure it. Oh Sweet Peace. Peace Be Still is the name of a gospel song that lets you know that when you have Peace, it stills all the turbulent conditions in life.

 

When we choose and allow Peace and Love to guide us through this journey of life, our life becomes filled with serenity and security. We realize that nothing can disturb us as we remain vigilant on establishing our life in complete Peace and Love. There is an air that enfolds us in assurance and confidence. It is the gift of The Most High God blessing us.

 

As we stay centered in this attitude nothing can harm us. We have a protective shield all around us that can not be penetrated by any negative gestures of another or ourselves. If we have an inclination to slip from this chosen path, we will be swooped up in a magical movement to remind us that we can no longer go backwards.

 

I Am anchored in Peace and Love. I Am Peace and Love. I radiate Peace and Love. I attract Peace and Love. I accept Peace and Love. All that I Am is Peace and Love.

 

Sweet Peace, Radiant Love flows from and through me at all times. I give thanks to The Source for my indwelling Peace and Love.

EXPANSIVE ENERGY

April 4th

 

An ever increasing existence, an expansive energy fills me up. I accept my blessings from The Almighty, Infinite One.

 

Sit, relax and envision this phenomenal unfolding for you. Picture it clearly, see it in full detail. Do you see it expanding all around you? The Creative Energy is at work in all of creation, especially your life. See it growing rapidly and completely. You are being flooded with goodness and mercy, the grace of God is acting on your behalf. It is readying everything in and on your path. The Blessings are growing, they are magnified! Do you see it yet?

 

Hold the vision of Expansive Energy fully operating in your life and affairs.  What does it look like for you? More love and peace; more harmony and cooperation; more money substance and freedom? What? Only you can make this decision for yourself. The Energy is eagerly waiting for you to say what it is that you desire. Once you have decided, The Energy goes to work for you giving you precisely what you have declared.

 

Now witness the unfolding of your highest good. You deserve it and more. Life is abundant in every aspect. My life is prosperous. Expansive Energy is everywhere evenly distributed. And it is unlimited. I gather my gifts with gratitude.

 

 

Be Thankful for the manifestations. Give Thanks at all times and in all ways. Just say it, Thanks God. That feels wonderful and opens the floodgates for more to come into your life. Thanks God for this incredible Expansive Energy that is circulating all around, in and through me. Thanks Creator for the absolute manifestations of Your Good.

 

I am a part of and recipient of God’s Expansive Energy.

23rd PSALMS

March 31st

 

Sometimes we need to personalize scripture and other writings so they have more impact for us. I am sharing my version of the 23rd Psalms which is one of my favorites. You can do this for yourself, it does not affect nor distract from the original writings. It simply adds special meaning for you.

 

 

23rd Psalms

 

God is my Source!

 

I already have everything I desire (I only need to see it and believe it).

 

My lavish garden is Peace-filled; in my stillness, my strength is enriched and increased.

 

I trust God.

 

God’s Grace is sufficient.

 

When fear knocks, my Faith does not answer the door.

 

God’s Mercy sustains me, carries me through all valley experiences.

 

As I call forth into being (as I recognize) the bountiful Blessings of my rich inheritance from God’s storehouse –

My life overflows with prosperity and abundance!

 

 

I am accompanied by goodness and kindness, everywhere I go, because; God dwells inside of me!

 

 

 

Amen.
