WHAT DO YOU HEAR?

 

December 15th

What do you hear when people tell you who they are? Do you listen to them or do you process it through the personal filter of your expectations? Do you hear their reality or do you hear blah, blah, blah because you need to hear only what you choose to hear? In the end you want to blame the person for not being who you assumed they would be.

Most people show up in their authenticity and when we listen to what they have to say we can truly learn who they are. Yet we often miss the message because we are not truly listening. People really do tell us who they are, even if it does not sound like what we want to hear them say.

Practice intentional listening; truly listen to what is being said by the other person. They will tell you the truth about who they are. Do not allow your expectations to interfere with what you hear. What are they telling you about themselves? Are they unavailable? Are they afraid? Do they need you to support them: emotionally, mentally or spiritually? Do they desire to share themselves and looking for a safe environment for that to occur?

I hear from many people their frustrations about a relationship that ended bitterly. In most instances it stems from one or both not sincerely listening to the other. One or both played the game of selfish motivation. They wanted the other person to be what they needed them to be and not who they truly were.

Today participate in total surrender to listening to what people are saying to you. You will receive rich blessings by uncovering the depths of the true souls of folks. You will hear stories of desires, goals, past pains and hurts, a longing to be heard by others.

Thank God for gifting you with two ears and one mouth. This implies we are to listen twice as much as we talk.

What do you hear?

SURGE

I got a surge of energy today like none I have ever experienced. This thing called Gratitude has me hyped up and excited! I am so extremely Thankful to The Creator for my being. I Am Thankful to be alive on this day in time.

I am sending out my surge of high vibrating energy into the Universe so that it can spread and touch everything and everybody in its path. I am thankful and very happy to let the world know of my enthusiasm and gusto for life and living. My surge is contagious and will touch all in its path.

My surge is powered by thoughts of the Goodness and Mercy of The Most High, The Creator of all things. I give a shout out to Allah for the Wisdom and Grace. I know how to minister to people by the teachings of Jehovah. Jesus the Christ came and served as a Way shower. Abraham, our elder brother demonstrated Faith. Buddha was the essence of Peace. Kabbalah teaches us the simple profound methods of living.

My surge is about to go off the charts. I am so ecstatic I am actually soaring above this planet into the higher dimensions of Heaven. That is the place I choose to have present here on earth. Heaven is where each person is treated with respect, dignity and honor. Oh that we may experience heaven here on earth.

My energy surge is attracting like-minded individuals and the animals. Everything in my path today is illumined by my surge of High Consciousness. I am one with all life! Watch me climb even higher and embrace all with Loving arms and embrace each with Compassion.

There it goes higher again. I am flying high, floating like an Angel ready and willing to gently touch all the lives I encounter today!

God I give Thanks for understanding I am one with all. I give Thanks for Your Grace and Mercy that sustains me day to day. Thanks God.

THE ELEMENTS

I give thanks for the many elements of the Universe.

I love the rays of the sun beaming down on the planet. It gives the force of life through its rays of nourishment. Vitamins found in the natural rays of sunshine can be a healing element. Sunshine will certainly brighten all days. The sun helps vegetation and all life forms to flourish and grow.

The rains come down to provide water and it is also a cleansing element. After the rains everything appears to be fresh, all the pollution is washed away even if just temporary. The rains help the same vegetation to grow. The rains can provide a haven for you to get some rest and relaxation.

The winds serve to move objects. The objects may be debris or it can be trees and leaves. Those things that are no longer needed at this particular time can be swept away by a gush of high winds.

The moon shines brightly to light the night sky. It is so glorious and beautiful. The full moon is a wondrous sight. Watch the moon rise and you will wonder how it knows exactly when to go into action.

The stars twinkle in the sky like little neon lights. Some are in patterns, some simply stand alone. However they are all amazing. Have you ever wished upon a star? Especially as a kid, you think the wish will come true and it usually does. Give it another try.

Mother Earth is special in every way. Mother Earth provides the perfect place to grow the plants, the trees, the flowers and our vegetables. Mother Earth is a nurturer and protector. Mother Earth has granted the birth of the Grand Canyon and the Pyramids, the Mayan Ruins and the Tombs. Mother Earth we thank you.

God we give thanks for Your Awesome Masterpiece of the Universe!

THANKS GOD

I am Thanking God right now. I give Thanks that I am alive this glorious day. I give Thanks for the newness of this day with endless opportunities. I thank God right where I am. I give Thanks.

God when I was out there thinking I had it to do all by myself, You were there with me. When I thought no one was listening to my prayers, You were there. When I almost gave up, You lifted me up. Thanks God almost seems inadequate an expression for the Joy I feel deep in my heart.

This is a day I will cherish, because I am aware this day of the bountiful Blessings given to me from God. God has never left me although there have been times when I forgot to Thank God. In the midst of my attempts to control and manipulate, I forgot where my Source resides. In the times of struggle and strife, I did not sing Praises.

So right this very moment, I pause and remember to always Give Thanks. I choose to remember The One Source as my Sustainer and Infinite Supply. I give Thanks today and my way is made brighter. I give Thanks knowing that I cannot do enough to show my appreciate for this life of mine.

So God I Thank YOU! I thank you for my breath. I Thank you for the blood that runs through my veins. I Thank God for the Mercy and Grace that cleanses all past wrong doings and incorrect choices. I Thank God for Forgiveness and True Everlasting Love! I am humbled by the fact I am made in the image and after the likeness of The Most High.

Today I focus on Thanks-giving. I give thanks for the rain and the sun. I give thanks for the increase of life. I give thanks for all my experiences.

I just can’t stop Thanking God Today!

I will not stop Praising The Creator!

AIM-LESS MOVEMENT

I strive daily to be led by God and do whatever I am told to do.

This particular day I had a twelve noon appointment but was dressed and ready to go very early. Yet I did what I was led to do. I got into my car and began driving. Not knowing exactly where I was supposed to go, I just drove. I then asked the question, where is it You want me to go?

I found myself, literally driving down the street going in the direction of our County’s Humane Society. I was so tickled because I was not thinking about adopting a pet. I knew I am gone too much from home and that it would not be a good match for me to get a pet and then never be home to lovingly provide for it. Yet off to the Animal Shelter I went. I was still laughing as I parked my car in a stall. Thinking to myself, God is truly funny and has a great sense of humor.

When I got inside, it was like I was being escorted by powers beyond my control. First I went to the puppy section. I was standing there amazed at the little fuzzy creatures, they were all so precious. The caretaker came and told me I could open any of the cages and hold the puppy. Instead what I did was to go to each cage and talk with the puppy. Told them I loved them and how beautiful they were.

Next off to the kittens and cats I went. They were all so splendidly colored. Some were purring and brushing their coats against the sides of the cages, others just looked as I passed them by. I felt a sense of connection to these animals and enjoyed my visit with them. I talked and smiled with each one.

Then I ended with the big dogs. Some were so noisy barking and acting out. I told them how incredible they were. Walked past and shared some love with each of them. I saw the loneliness in the eyes of some, as if to say I do not deserve an owner. I thought to myself how closely related dogs and humans are. I thought about the many people I encounter who have this same look in their eyes. I noticed the bark of those that just want to be heard and thought again about the similarities with people is striking.

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!!!

ALL ABOARD

 

My experiences at Hartsfield Jackson will remain with me for a long time. I choose to remember how bountifully I am blessed when I simply go with the flow, when I relinquish my need to control situations. This is the last part of my journey.

I called a friend as I sat there. I wanted to get away for a short time if possible. I left a voicemail message and continued on with my explorations of the airport adventure. He and his cousin came and took me to dinner. This was a wonderful treat that may not have happened if I were not stuck at the airport. We enjoyed wonderful fellowship together, a great meal, delightful service and great friends.  A wonderful combination!

I know I went through the security process at least four times. I kept going back to the gates to see if I could get on the next flight! What was so amazing to me is the first two times I went through with no problems, but the third and fourth times I was stopped! It was all so humorous to me. I had not changed one single thing I had on me or was carrying.

So finally, here is the next to the last flight of the day. I sat there with my boarding pass, just waiting. My name is called by the same agent that had worked every flight to Los Angeles that day. He recognized me as having been there all day waiting on a flight. I approached the line leading to the walkway for the plane and he said, “I told you to come to the counter.” So I apologized and walked to the counter as he looked very serious and explained “Oh I am terribly sorry I called your name by accident.” I literally stopped breathing. And he began to laugh hysterically at me! I had helped to make his day because not once had I become upset with not being able to get on a flight. This was his way of appreciating me!

On the plane I was gifted with sitting on the aisle way next to a mother and baby boy. This baby and I played all the way to Los Angeles, allowing the mother to take a nap now and then. I usually sit next to the window and would have missed this opportunity to share with this baby.

It was a most awesome 13 hours! I was gifted with wonderful Spirits who shared so unselfishly with me of who they were. I joyously received their gifts of friendship and I know I am blessed by having spent thirteen hours absorbing the love of other people.

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!

EVOLVING


April 10th

 

Evolving is an act of movement. It is neither stagnant nor dormant. Evolving is growing and expanding. Evolving is action.

 

Each day I am evolving. I choose to evolve into an enlightened individual filled with unconditional love, peace, harmony and acceptance. As I evolve I entertain higher insights. I continually strive to stretch wider and wider to grow more and more. I take this evolution seriously. I seek knowledge and wisdom. I feast from The Source all that is good and honorable.

 

I evolve with great expectations. I thrive for excellence in my endeavors and growth. I give my best efforts in evolving into a better human. I stay focused on positive outcomes and hold only positive expectations. I am growing. I am allowing my light to shine for myself and others. I light the way with truth, humility and justice. I am a beacon of unconditional love and appreciation.

 

I evolve with a knowingness that God is in control. I summon the energies of my ancestors, spiritual guides and Masters. As I evolve certain habits, traits and ways are transformed and now greatly benefit me in a new way.

 

As with a butterfly, as my metamorphous is completed, the result is a uniquely new beautiful creation. A new look and a new purpose are now mine.

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!
