FISHING POND

What are you catching with your fishing pole (consciousness)? What bait (thoughts) are you using? What size is your fishing pond (Faith)?

You can pull/catch the future and bring it into the present. Or you can continue catching the past by not releasing the old worn out tape. It is your choice. When you desire newness, you will gladly relinquish attachment to the past.  I can stop the tape of the past and discord it. As long as I find comfort in the familiar, even when it may cause me pain, and stay there, that is my choice.

Today I choose to fish from the pond of unlimited possibilities. I open myself up to visualizing in grand style. I use my gift of imagination and expand it by increasing my vision. I continue with this process of expanding and increasing until it is complete. Then I start over because I know God is in control, which is my Faith. My vision is impaired by my physical knowledge. However, I accept God has more in store for me than I could ever imagine. I do my part by beginning the process and then allowing the Infinite Intelligence to guide and direct me to what and where I am to go. I am ever Thankful for being led by The Most High to my higher state of being and consciousness.

I require a large vessel to hold the fish I catch today. No longer is a small ship large enough to hold my catch. I willingly expand to receive my expected and unexpected good! It is right in front of me, some I see while others are just below the surface waiting for my bait to snag them.

Praises, Praises, Praises. As Praises go Up, Blessings Come Down! I graciously accept them ALL! Thanks God. So Be It!!!

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!

ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE

 

Enjoy the experience you are currently in, there is JOY within it and all around you.

Whatever the experience looks like resolve yourself to finding the beauty and joy in it. It may be hiding but it is there! You have the choice and care of creating your life. When JOY is what you desire then JOY will be manifested. It is always your very own choice.

Blessings sometimes come disguised as something else. Yet when you are always expecting JOY and a miracle, then that is what will be evidenced by you. Take for instance, no employment. This could be a time of great distress or you can make the most of it and discover a great gift that has been waiting for you to have some free time to show itself to you. Maybe you can learn to swim or learn to paint or construct another artistic object. This may be the golden time of your life. Remember it is your choice of how you will look at it, either a curse or a blessing.

Enjoying the experience may mean that you are currently living a single life. Well how about truly developing your relationships with the friends in your life. You now have the time to do things that you did not have time for before. Go out and meet new people. Get involved in an activity that you have put off until the right time. Enjoy your life and the experience you are currently in.

Age has absolutely nothing to do with it. Age is a matter of consciousness. I know an elder who says she is 16, however the way we calculate age she is actually 88 years young. But for her, she is 16 and loving life!!

Add flavor to your life by daring yourself to learn a new language or go to a new place just for the fun of it. Another friend of mine has recently relocated to the Southeast and he takes full advantage of his new environment by going out and learning about this new uncharted area of the United States he has never lived in before. He is having the time of his life.

APPRECIATION

I willingly and willfully show appreciation to all that is in my life this day!

I say my prayer of Thanksgiving to God first. I wake with a smile on my face and in my heart. I am Thankful for another day of life, another opportunity to experience life. I move about this day with a consciousness of gratitude.

I am grateful for my place of residence, be it a room, an apartment or a house. I make it my home regardless to how it is called. My home is my expression of all that I Am. There is Love and Peace in my home. My home is my refuge, my sanctuary and I am grateful.

I appreciate the work that I do. I give my best to each and every detail. My work is a reflection of Who I am. Whatever condition I may currently be in, I remain grateful. I remember to say Thank You to each person at my place of employment. I honor who they are. I say Thank You to my clients. I say Thank You to my colleagues. I say Thank You!

I say thank you to every thing big or small, for I have called it into my life for a reason. I am grateful for the food I eat that nourishes my body temple. I am thankful for my surroundings. I am thankful for the beautiful people that have agreed to show up, just for me. I am thankful for the situations I have created in my life. I am grateful for the opportunities that have come to bless me with learnings that I would not have received otherwise. IN all things I am grateful.

Yes today I appreciate everything in my life! I am so extremely Blessed!

I Am Thankful!

HEAD or HEART?

Do you know or feel the Indwelling Presence of God? Both are good and there is no right or wrong answer. There is a difference however.

To know you are here by the sheer Grace and Mercy of The Creator is wonderful. To understand that life exists purely by The Source breathing into all living things is powerful. To be able to explain just how marvelous the workings of God is in your life is exciting. To voice affirmations is terrific.

Yet when you allow yourself to really ‘feel’ this incredible energy that sustains you, there are no words to describe it. You simply are ‘in’ Grace and Mercy. You feel it all the way down to your toes. You feel it like a first skin. You experience the flow through every atom and cell of your body. You feel it rushing through your heart pumping miraculously to every organ, giving it more life energy. To ‘feel God’ is absolutely amazing!

I ‘feel’ the Omnipotent Presence of The Most High Source in my body, heart and blood! Just sit and ‘feel’ God in YOU! It is glorious and wonderful! It is powerful and sustaining. God is life itself.

Can you really ‘feel’ The Presence? Close your eyes for a moment. Be still. ‘Feel’ your heart beat. WOW! ‘Feel’ the blood circulating through your veins. WOW! ‘Feel’ your breath. WOW! Just experience it and appreciate it. Glow in the Love of God gifting you with Life. Just ‘BE’ in it!!!

God is the beginning, the middle and the end. Nothing comes or survives without the support of God. I can ‘feel’ the Life Source in me. I ‘feel’ it and I love IT! I appreciate and treasure it.

Thanks God, Allah, Creator, Most High, Source.

I do ‘feel’ The Life Sustaining Presence!

STANDING STRONG IN SPIRIT

May 29th

 

To stand strong in Spirit is to truly know Spirit. Spirit is available to each one of us. We can connect with the awesome power of The Most High Holy Spirit when we choose to do so.

 

I stand strong in Spirit knowing Whose I am, a child of God. I stand on the firm foundation of Spiritual Truth. This foundation is unshakable. I take time daily to communicate with my inner Spirit. This communication is incredible and sends wondrous energy throughout my body. I am energized by this communication. I feel renewed when I connect. It is awesome to know Spirit is always available to me. All I need to do is to call upon the Power and it is mine!

 

I stand in Spirit by allowing myself to freely express the goodness that is within me. I share with others from my storehouse of plenty. I have plenty of love and joy. I have plenty of words of support and encouragement. I have plenty of positive gestures, a smile, or a nod of approval. I express God in all of my interactions with others.

 

I stand strong in Spirit by being good to myself. I treat myself as I would have others treat me. I nourish my inner Spirit by being honest with myself at all times. I love me unconditionally! I forgive myself whenever it is required. I talk loving words to myself. I wrap the warmth of God around me and walk tall.

 

Yes today I stand strong in Spirit. Only good comes to me this day. I rejoice in my constant connection with Spirit.

 

I give Thanks!

FEEDING EMOTIONS

May 26th

 

What do you feed your emotions? What emotions are you experiencing?

 

When we have good vibrational emotions we feel good and exuberant. We can laugh and truly enjoy life. We can choose to remain in this state or we can give that power away to another force.

 

Negative emotions have a tendency to rob us of happiness. Sometimes we feed them with food or other drugs. I use the term drugs to include all unhealthy activities. So regardless to what that something is that you feed off in times when you cannot give yourself positive words, it is a drug. A drug is an artificial stimulant and can be just about anything in the world.

 

Today I choose my emotions carefully. I consciously go and stay at a higher state of awareness. My emotions today are positive. I only allow positive emotions to exist for me this day. I meditate on positive thoughts.

 

I pray for Peace and Harmony. I am Joy and Love today. I surround myself with Light and Truth as I move through this day. It is my choice. My experiences are a reflection of the emotions I am carrying and expecting.

 

Today I feed upon the rich promises of God. I know that I can choose my experiences, therefore I choose wisely. I feed upon the Goodness and Grace of God. I feast from the Storehouse of Plenty. I am abundantly supplied.

 

Thanks God for allowing me choice and free will. I know I have complete control of my life. I choose for it to be good and very good. I expect and experience good all the time.

 

I constantly feed my emotions Truth, Love, Joy and Happiness. I know that which I give out returns to me pressed down, shaken together and multiplied. That is the principle of reap and sow.

 

I feed my emotions Love and more Love!!!

THE ART OF BEING STILL

May 21st

 

As I sat and listened intently to Sri Charles of Shanti Villa Holistic Healing Institute, I clearly heard his message of being still. As questions were being posed to him by the participants, his response to solving their seeming challenge was, Just Sit! What a powerful lesson he was giving to all of us.

 

Our answers are each imbedded in the core of who we are. We need not look to anyone else for the answer. This was coming from an esteemed Spiritual leader. Sri Charles did not desire people to look to him for their answers. He knows the authenticity of God-Power working in each person’s life. And so he kept directing the person back to their own Spirit for their answers.

 

He said “Be Still and know”. How often do we ask others for the answers to our questions? When we still ourselves, our answers will come to us. Just become quiet, still yourself. Ask your question and wait for the answer. Knock on the door of opportunity and behold it is opened for you. Seek and you will definitely discover that which you are looking for.

 

There is an art in being still, to just sit! Like any other form of course material, you are required to study it. It may come very quickly for you; with little to no effort on your part. Or it may take lots of practice before you can fully appreciate the benefits of it. When you have truly mastered this art form, you will treasure the rewards it will bring you.

 

This connection to your inner self is Spirit! Glorious Holy Spirit! Inside your inner sanctuary dwells a wellspring of knowledge and knowing. You are only required to connect to and with it. Each person is gifted with this. Each person has their own answers.

 

Today I practice The Art of Being Still. I connect with The One Source and receive my answers!

WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO YOU

May 18th

 

At your inception God breathed the gift of life into you. You were immediately filled with all the knowledge you needed to live a productive and joyous life. God poured All Wisdom, Love, Compassion and Joy into the very fiber of your being. At your birth you were pure.

 

As we grow our teachers become many. Many are there to teach us how to behave in this society. Sometimes the fears of others are passed on to us, usually out of love for us. We are told what is and is not acceptable behavior. We are constantly fed thoughts that tell us we are wrong and must act a certain way to be okay. Then we go to school and we receive additional messages regarding our self worth. The whole process is neither good nor bad, it just is or has been.  Along the way, we lose our sense of self and begin looking for outside influences to tell us we are okay. We attend colleges and universities. We search out all the self empowerment and self improvement programs that are available. We have accepted this false notion that something in us needs to be corrected and someone else is authorized and better equipped to tell us how to do it.

 

When God speaks to us, it is our own voice that we hear. God lives in our heart and so no doubt when God speaks it is through our very soul that the communication occurs. We hear our own voice, but it sounds so rational and wise. The voice is clear and audible. But then again we have been told that if we talk to ourselves we are crazy. Yet who knows YOUR story better than you? Who can feel exactly what you feel about any given situation?

 

All of your answers are already given to you. You DO know the right thing to do for yourself. You are in direct communication with God at all times. It is your responsibility to connect and get your answers, to ask and receive from the storehouse of the Almighty! God wants to talk directly with you. There is never a need for an interpreter or a go between. You got the direct link! God speaks to us when we are ready to listen.  Thanks God. So Be It!

FORGIVE SELF

May 5th

 

I forgive myself for holding on to things which no longer serve me. I forgive myself totally and completely for any negative emotions I have not allowed myself to release. I forgive myself for not honoring the life and beauty in me. I forgive myself for not loving me unconditionally!!!

 

I forgive myself because I have become my own worst critic. I release the need to beat up on myself for missing the mark. I forgive myself because I believe I have to work hard to be acceptable and gain entrance into the Kingdom of God. I forgive myself because through unforgiveness I cannot move freely; I cannot move forward nor can I accept others.

 

I forgive myself to liberate the God consciousness in me to fully operate and express through me. I forgive because The Source harbors no ill feelings about me. I Am made in the image and after the likeness of The Most High. I forgive myself for not consistently loving me enough to not cause harm to my body temple. I forgive myself because I have held on long enough to these worn out false ideas about what makes me a good person. My standards are from on high and from that position I Am good and very good, even from my inception. I am not conceived nor born into sin. My existence was created from an act of love and passion.

 

I forgive myself because I must accept that the actions I took represented my understanding at that time. Now that I know better, I do better. Today I declare with full intention to completely and totally forgive myself of any labels or false names I have placed on myself. Today I freely choose Forgiveness.

 

God forgives all my actions. I forgive all my actions. I am freed by and through FORGIVENESS. As I learn to forgive myself it is very easy to forgive all others. My choice is simple: I FORGIVE ALL BEGINNING WITH MYSELF!!!
