BUILD RELATIONSHIPS

 The creation of anything requires time, skill and expertise. True relationships do not happen by chance, they take time to build.

Building relationships is a wonderful opportunity to discover who you really are. Most relationships that we entertain are a reflection of those qualities we either have in our self or aspire to develop in ourselves.

Always began the building with truth and honesty. Allow the other person to see and share with the real you. I have been told by the participants of Common Ground that they do not allow people to see them in their fullness at first. They wait, wear masks to cover the real person, until that person has proved they are worthy to really know them. The masks serve as a protection and a hiding place. My question to them is what does that say about you? Are you afraid or ashamed of whom you are? Why not allow the person to see the real you? What if you are missing out on a great friendship? What if that person transitioned before you have the opportunity to show them who you really are?

When we have nothing to hide and no longer are ruled by fear of people getting too close or not liking the real you, then we can proudly show up in our authentic self at all times. Regardless to the situation we are pleased of who we are and have become and fully desire for others to ‘see’ us in full expression.

Do you always show up in true identity? Do you wear masks depending on the circumstances? Do you first appear one way, then as the relationship builds and you feel more comfortable you become another person? Become the person who desire to be so that you can always demonstrate the authentic you! Be proud of who you are at all times. Express yourself fully.

Build the relationship with you first. Know you are a child of God; worthy, deserving, complete, healthy, and whole. Honor yourself at all times. Be kind to you, be loving to you and be forgiving of yourself. Love you and allow others to love you in return.

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.

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!

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!

COMPASSION

April 29th

 

I give that which I desire to receive. I give compassion to others freely. I am compassionate with folks I know and those I do not. Compassion is a sincere feeling of unity and connection to the Universe.

 

I feel compassion for the student learning a subject in school. I give compassion to persons experiencing challenges in their life. I share the gift of compassion with the homeless, down trodden, the ill and those not understanding their true Source. I shower compassion on my loved ones.

 

Compassion is a gift I can share openly and honestly. For I sincerely care about the well being of my fellow human. I can hold with them a vision for a different lifestyle; one that is filled with hope and dreams. I can offer a helping hand when needed.

 

My compassion is generously given to others. I may be required to listen. I may be asked to assist with a situation. I may be needed to hold them in prayer for a brighter outcome. I do what I can knowing that as I help my fellow human I am serving them in a loving manner.

 

Is there someone who could benefit from your compassion? You may know someone who is too stubborn to ask but you know they would benefit from a good healthy dose of compassion. Go ahead and send it out to them anyway. They really do not need to know what you are doing. It is your responsibility to help and to serve others. Give compassion unconditionally.

 

Choose to be led by compassion today. Show your true concern about another’s well being and comfort. Do what you can without violating the other person.  They have a right to experience life in their own terms but you can help, silently.

 

I thank God for my gift of Compassion and I choose to share it freely.

EXPECTATIONS

April 15th

 

What we focus our attention on is exactly what appears in our life. As Buddha said, “All that we are is the result of what we have thought.”

 

My expectation today is positive and expansive. I expect great things to happen in my life. I expect to be in perfect health. I expect very loving relationships. I expect abundance and prosperity. I expect Peace and Joy! I expect more and more of all good things to be increased in my life.

 

You may be saying to yourself that is just too much for me to do. I cannot think like that because and you give yourself a reason not to. What harm will it do for you to consider the possibility of increasing only that which you desire in your life? Decide to be a possibility thinker today. Stretch your expectations beyond all that you have allowed yourself to believe is possible or probable. I dare you!

 

Expect good health and you will find that you soon stop eating the fast foods and prepare more nutritious meals for yourself.  You enjoy going shopping for organic fruits and vegetables, you begin to juice. You find it very easy to eliminate fatty foods from your diet. You discover ways to add exercise into your daily activities. You get adequate rest. Your life is balanced.

 

Expect an increase in money substance and the right opportunities will come to you. The magic here is that you must act on them once they are given to you. You say you have never done this type of work before and you doubt if you will be successful. Well do it anyway. It’s okay if it does not work because it will actually open your creative genius up to work for you. You are telling the Universe you are willing to learn and do something different. Opportunities will flood you and now you have plenty to choose from.

 

Expect Love and you will receive it. Unconditional Love will come from each and every person you encounter. It will not be limited to a single person or your immediate family. You will feel the Love radiate from you and others. It feels fantastic. Set your expectations to receive that which you truly desire and graciously accept it into your reality!

SACRED INTIMACY

March 15th

 

Sacred Intimacy is going within and communing at the very core of who you are with The Source.

 

This is a private activity that connects you to the Spiritual energy of the Universe. It is Prayer. It is Meditation. It is Breath. It is aloneness with God. It is the time when you shut down all else and concentrate on your connection with Infinite Spirit. It is just YOU and The Creator.

 

Still your thoughts. Turn off the outside environment, the phone, the radio, the TV, the self-talk. Become very, very still. Trust that you can do this. Say to yourself and the Universe that you are grateful to be alive. Thank God for your existence. Shout it loud if you can. Give Thanks. Simply Give Thanks.

 

Allow yourself to bask in the goodness that is all around you. Think positive thoughts. Be happy that whatever is in your life today is there for a reason. Accept the lesson and blessing in it. Immerse yourself in complete LOVE! Feel the Love as it radiates through your entire body. It may feel like an electrical current or a tingling sensation. However, It is Love Energy that has been waiting for you to recognize and welcome it into your experience.

 

Love is Powerful! Love is Awesome! Love is healing! Love is energizing!!!

 

Enjoy your Scared Intimacy each day. Go to that place within you and truly treasure your ability to connect with the energy that sustains life. It is yours to fully appreciate. It is available to you at your beck and call. Just summon the Power and it is there.

 

Today I experience an incredible Sacred Intimacy that satisfies my every need, care and concern.

 

Thanks God.

A NEW CULTURE

March 8th

 

I envision A New Culture based entirely on LOVE!

 

I see all living creatures co-existing peacefully with one another. A culture void of competition, greed, jealously, fear and hatred. I see a culture where love reigns supreme. I see a culture that completely accepts and honors difference as a norm of reality. I see a culture that inspires and encourages the exchange of all. I see Love that radiates from all and through all in this New Culture.

 

This New Culture embraces change and growth, it expands with creativity. It is a utopia that inspires and motivates, it soothes and caresses the tender aspects of life and living.

 

This New Culture is possible. I can aide in the creation of this New Culture within my sphere of influence. I can help establish and build this perfect dwelling place with those I encounter on my journey through life. My path is amply supplied with opportunities for my expression of unconditional love and acceptance.

 

This New Culture will be cultivated with like-minded individuals. It will be built by the hue-manity that truly desires a world where everyone is treated as equal individuals. This New Culture is the result of knowing we are each divinely inspired and created to belong to a family, a worldwide family of respect, honor and love.

 

This New Culture is exactly where I reside. I create this New Culture. I embrace this New Culture. I cherish this New Culture.

 

I give Thanks to The Creator for the manifestation of this New Culture during my lifetime! I Am this New Culture!

A.S.K.

A.S.K. – Awakening Spiritual Knowledge!

 

There resides within each of us a divine knowledge of everything we need to know to live an abundant and prosperous life. We have overlooked it because we have been trained not to recognize our connection to The Source, God.

 

The truth is we can summons this knowledge and power whenever we choose. It is awaiting our attention. All that is, is within us. The Creator gifted us with this Spiritual Knowledge. It is buried in our hearts. It is alive when we acknowledge its existence.

 

Spiritual Knowledge is that knowing without physical proof. You cannot explain it. Even if you could others may not understand you, which may cause you to lose faith in what you know to be true. Spiritual Knowledge is that little voice telling you to go ahead because everything is going to be just fine and dandy. Just do it! The words scream at you. Are you listening?

 

Spiritual Knowledge is that vision that keeps repeating itself over and over again in your dreams. You wake up and think, what a strange dream I had last night. There are times when we are not paying attention to our innermost desires and our dreams reveal to us they are still alive and waiting.

 

You can awaken that power within you. Spiritual Knowledge surpasses all intellectual understanding. Spiritual Knowledge is accepting the power and presence of God, The Creator, The Source living and dwelling inside of you. Spiritual Knowledge knows no separation, knows no boundaries, and knows no limitations.

 

Dare to A.S.K. today. Awaken Spiritual Knowledge within you right now. Allow it to grow and expand with each breath you inhale and exhale. Breathe it in fully. Know that it is yours all the time!

GOD IS THE SOURCE

Columbine

I will wake up and live the life I Love, in Spirit and in Truth!!!

 

My source is God. I am sustained in a power I will never be able to express in words. This power is God! The power of God is incredible, it is Awesome! This power can turn war into peace. This power can transcend time and place. It is everywhere evenly distributed. It is a power that heals and harmonizes everything in its path. I connect to my Infinite Source at all times.

 

There is a power inside of me that is greater than any outside influence. I rise up and greet this Power with my utmost respect. I rise up to welcome this Power into every small detail of my existence. I rise up!

 

I must be fully awake to utilize this Power. I choose to be aware of this Power. I acknowledge this Power. I am this Power, in human expression.

 

There is a gift inside of me begging for expression through me. I know it, I feel it, I can sense it. I live this life that has been but a dream. I fully engage in its reality. I give birth to it with ease, joy and peace. I am excited.

 

Wake up and fully live! Wake up and allow your uniqueness to flow, to water all of humanity. You are a gift.

 

I discover the life I sincerely Love. I live the life I Love! I Am the life I Love. God is my strength, my courage, and my wisdom. With God I can conquer all fear and live victoriously. With God all things are possible! I Am charged with an unfailing attitude of Success! Thanks God for choosing me to do the work that I alone am called to do. Thanks Creator for entrusting me with the gifts to make a contribution that benefits all of mankind.

 

I CAN.

I WILL.

I DO.

GOD IS MY SOURCE!!!
