CONTRACT

What will you do today to add value to your life and to the lives of others?

Write up your personal contract with the Universe.

Here is mine:

Today I will smile; this is my expression to the Universe that I am joyous to be a part of the living process. I will smile to show others I care for them. I will smile on the outside and my insides will be happy.

Plentiful Universe I will seek ways to be a caregiver to the betterment of You. I will not litter your scenery nor will I destroy it in any other way. I will respect You in all ways possible.

This day I will rejoice with all who are happy and share with them their joy. This day I will share in other emotions that a person may be experiencing. Today I will share and interact with others as if we are the same, because I know that we are each the same. Today I choose to honor our Oneness. I choose to celebrate Unity in Community today!

I Thank God throughout the day. I Thank God for the brilliance of the Sun shining through the windows. I Thank God for the rain that is cleansing away the pollution and worries. I Thank God for giving me this day as another gift to share with all those around me.

I promise myself to live by the words I have written of my own free will.

I am solely responsible to myself to live out these words.

I am accountable and trustworthy to me.

I will fulfill the intent of my desires set forth above.

Signed:_______________________________this 9th day of October.

23rd PSALMS

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He makes me to rest in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters.

He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yes, though I walk through the valley of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and they staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointed my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely thy goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

 

Sandy’s version

God is my source. I already have everything I desire. (I only need to see it!)

My lavish garden is peace-filled; in the quietness, 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 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 in me.

 (You can personalize scripture for it to be very clear for you as well)

 

SURRENDER

It requires Strength, real powerful strength to Surrender to God’s Will for your life. We think we have and know all the answers. We feel as though no one can tell us what to do or how to do it. And we stay stuck in a fog of uncertainty and confusion.

However, as we surrender to God’s Will for our lives we become peaceful and serene with the manifestations that are unfolding. We smile with acceptance of the bountiful Blessings that are being showered upon us.

How do you know the difference? Well, when we are pushing and shoving, manipulating and taking advantage, then we are usually not in alignment with God’s Will. We are attempting to make something happen! I know I have been there a lot of my life. Thinking that ‘if I do not do it, then who will?’; believing that I had to work hard and nonstop to get where I wanted to go, or  thinking that working two jobs was the only way or simply accepting lack as the one reality.

When we are moving about in Peace and Love, as things are just happening with no effort on our part then that is when God is working through us. When the little acts appear as gigantic movements then that is God working through you. To allow this to happen requires gigantic strength. We must surrender our best friend – ego! We must tell ego to take a hike, to be gone from us. And because ego has been a constant companion for so long, ego is not leaving without a good fight.

Learning to surrender that ego, that part of you that says you must compete; win the battle or they may appear to be better than you, is the best thing you can do for yourself. Ego is always about judging and judgments win or lose, condemning and condoning. Release the ego, say that final good bye. The battle is over.

God’s Will for you is for YOU! You will never compete for your good. It is always present! There is always available Your Portion of Grace and Mercy. Simply Surrender to The Creator’s Will for YOU!

SURRENDER TO SUCCESS

The original thought for September’s theme was Success. However the more I thought about it, it seemed what most need to do is to surrender to success! That we must surrender our fears, to either failure or success and proceed from there. We must truly know our worth and feel a sense of deserving the best. We are an heir to the Kingdom! The Fullness is ours! Will you, can you accept it?

We each have dreams and goals, yet we seem to procrastinate in doing the things that will bring us to that place of success. We put it off, say we will follow up at a later time or simply ignore the blessings that are put on our path. Perhaps we feel ill at ease for desiring more than what others have experienced either in our birth families or with our circle of friends. Put that all aside and make a decision to be the one who sets the pace for others to follow, set the example for excellence.

So the next time you meet someone who says they can help you achieve your dream, schedule an appointment with them right away. Or you happen to find a business card of a person that you met who is an excellent resource, follow up with a phone call to them. You just never know what could happen.

Surrender your fear, surrender your thoughts and surrender your way to Success. Allow your actions to match what you have determined to be most important in your life. Know that you are being guided and protected from On High! Trust that the Universe is waiting for you; to be Successful, to follow your Dream, to become the Greatness you were created to be!

Be engulfed, entrenched in Success! Open up to the vastness of the Universe! Know YOUR rightful place is called SUCCESS! Feel the completion of a JOB WELL DONE!

God, The Most High, The Benevolent One is supporting YOU!

GOD’s CALVARY

God’s Calvary can consist of your friends and family; your earthly Angels and/or strangers. The Calvary has come to protect you on the battle field of earth versus heavenly reality.

Your friends are God’s gifts to you. They have each been assigned and placed on your path to serve a particular role in assisting you to get where you say you desire to go and to become who you say you want to become. They have agreed to serve in this position and some roles are for a lifetime while others are temporary. We cannot keep a person who is only here for us temporarily, permanently. This disturbs the balance and may block the next person who is assigned to help us. Friends are gifts.

Your Earth Angels have received their instructions from The Most High. Their duty is to serve and protect you. You know the person who is always available even if you act out with them? The person you seek when you need to hear yourself talk out loud; the person who just knows when to tell you to heed to your warning signs. Earth Angels are a precious commodity and should be handled with extreme care.

Strangers appear when we are so consumed by the physical appearances that we have placed ourselves out of touch with our friends, family or Earth Angels. We feel alienated and alone, afraid to say what we are experiencing. With a stranger we are free to be our self, there is no fear in hearing what we have shared with them. We have a tendency to feel safe expressing who we are with a stranger, someone who does not know our past.

All of these individuals have their respective roles to play in fulfilling the assignments given to them by God. Learn to respect each one for their Blessing in your life.

God uses people as messengers when we are stuck or require guidance.

God’s Calvary is amazing and truly strengthened by Holy Power! Energized by the One Power and Presence that sustains all life!!!

THEME SONGS

My favorite theme song is from the TV sitcom, Reba. Reba McEntire sings the words, ‘Who I am is who I want to be. I am a survivor!’ Those are some prolific words. This song describes where I currently reside in life, Who I Am is who I want to be!

 This attitude has taken time to develop by really being with myself, listening to what I thought and had to say to myself; to honor the presence of The Source that lives inside of me; to fully appreciate my goodness and to know it is mine when I say it is mine! Therefore I can honestly boast that, Who I am is who I want to be!!!

Has it always looked this way for me? Absolutely not. Yet I always knew somewhere deep within my Spirit that there had to be something more to this thing called life. So I began my journey into the meanings of life. I have enjoyed some wonderfully varied perspectives on life, religions and other philosophies. I have enjoyed the awesome friendships of people who did not look like me, some not even close! But I knew we are each here on this planet earth to live out our individual purposes. I just knew the world did not revolve solely around me. Therefore I included others, actually I welcomed others into my life to experience their presence (presents). I have been so tremendously gifted in ways I will treasure in this life and the next ones by the blessings of others who have shared so freely with me. My heart is jumping with joy as I remember all the souls that became a part of me. People who just showed up and appreciated being their authentic self, to demonstrate to me their way of life and living, and loved me enough to share who they were. I have enjoyed the experiences of many different cultures and have become a fuller person because of the many friendships.

Do you have a favorite theme song? Choose one that you can hum as you go about your day. It can and will remind you of what is important to you alone.

 As for me…WHO I AM IS WHO I WANT TO BE!

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!!!

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.

BE OUTSTANDING

Be outstanding all the time!

Give all that you have so more may be added to you. To be outstanding is to demonstrate the ultimate of who you are at every opportunity. You grow when you willingly give your best because you set your mark higher for the next time around.

I choose to be outstanding!

I give the best I am and have to the Universe and humanity. I serve with pure humility and gratitude. It is my honor to be of service to others. This is my way of expressing my deepest gratitude to God for all that I have in my life. I am truly Thankful for the many Blessings already received and those yet to be received.

I Am Outstanding!

My actions reflect what I feel and think about me. I feel Blessed. My cup is filled to overflowing with the Grace and Mercy of God. I accept my rich heritage. I display my royalty for all to witness. This demonstration allows others the opportunity to witness God in action. That is my reason for always, always choosing to be outstanding in all areas.

Thanks God for creating me. I thank God for the awesome flowing of life which sustains my existence. I remain in sincere appreciation to God for my life. Therefore I Am Outstanding in everything I do, that is my testimony of God at work in my life.

I CHOOSE TO ACCEPT JOY

My choice today is to accept JOY as an integral part of who I am created to be. I am led and governed by JOY! I move in JOY! I breathe in JOY!

I choose JOY because no one can choose this for me. It is my responsibility alone. Others may pray for me during an intercessory prayer but ultimately it is my choice what will appear in my life. My choices are wise.

By accepting JOY I am opening myself up to receiving Unconditional Love. I willingly Forgive because unforgiveness simply cannot exist in me as I stay focused and centered in JOY. I release forever anything and everything that does not look or feel like JOY!

I choose to allow JOY to freely roam on my journey of life, to guide my way. My path is made straight. JOY directs my actions. What an incredible freedom this brings to me. I experience the promises made by my Father, who art in Heaven. This thing called JOY is remarkable. Absolutely nothing or no thing can disturb me as I am steadfast in my concentration on JOY. JOY controls and rules my thoughts, words and actions.  I am deliberate and dedicated to creating and maintaining my life in JOY!

When I choose JOY then JOY chooses me. We travel together, enjoying life. Simply Loving everything in and on our path. We do not judge nor condemn. We allow all that is, to express how it so chooses. This is truly an amazing experience of freedom and liberation.

JOY is my conscious choice today, a welcomed guest in my life.
