Don’t limit your thoughts!

Don’t confine yourself by limiting your thoughts and beliefs about you. Your present circumstances may affect your thoughts but they’re not permanent. Circumstances can, do and will change! They may have an effect on you but aren’t the deciding factor in life, so don’t limit your thought’s and belief’s to what is now.

You’re not what’s happening to you right now. You’re how you handle what’s happening to you right now! I’ve always felt you should leave a relationship or situation the same pleasant loving way you entered, never thinking less of yourself but learning from that interaction. We must extract positive information and relieve ourselves of the negative, allowing ourselves to grow forward. You’re the person traveling through your present surroundings; you’re not the surrounding itself.

You can’t allow yourself to be limited to what you see before you, your potential is boundless so think beyond your present circumstance in a positive manner. Only things that matter, are the things you allow too! So give life to the boundless, limitless, unstoppable, loving, honorable, respectful, energetic force you are and know circumstances are temporary. You can’t get down on yourself; worry and anxiety blocks your connection to the divine spirit. You must have faith and keep moving forward, which strengthens your connection with the divine spirit and fuels your future, opening doors along the way.

Never allow your identity to be determined by your present surroundings, circumstances or conditions. Think and live in the boundless arena which is you, eliminating restrictive thought’s of you, that can stunt your growth!

Think and be Free!

Drink From Your Heart!

Take a drink from your heart! If you keep giving to others without giving to yourself, you will at some point become depleted! It’s like pouring water from a jug. If you keep pouring without ever refilling it, eventually, it will be empty. So, how do we refill, recharge, re-energize, refresh and replenish ourselves, so that we will have energy and love to share with others and the universe? The answer is: By Acknowledging, loving, honoring and giving to ourselves!

There are many ways for us to love and to care for ourselves. An important way to love ourselves is to nourish and care for our bodies, eating healthy foods and exercising regularly. Your body is where you live 24/7/365! You may want to “treat” yourself to things like a massage, a facial, a pedicure, a vacation or just a nice leisurely walk.  You can drink from your heart by being in the practice of using positive affirmations. Take some time to come up with the qualities that you most want to embody. Choose two or three to focus on for any period of time and love yourself more. Taking breaks and having fun are important, whether alone or with a friend, you deserve a break today, don’t work yourself too hard, be kind, compassionate and understanding to yourself!

Acknowledge yourself, it’s healthy to bring a heightened level of awareness into your life concerning your success! Say something lovingly to you about you! “Drink From Your Heart!”

I Am Who I Am!

Here’s a daily Mantra that has served me well and I want to share it with you!

I am who I am, what you see is what you get. I am what I say I am and I live in the truth, you can’t change me so please do not try. Don’t criticize me; and I think you need to know…before you go there, that trying to put me down, in an attempt to fit me into the limitations of your box, is a total waste of your good time and energy. It will be far easier for you to accept me as I am rather than try to make me who you want me to be. You don’t have to agree with what I say or do. Just accept me as a human being working on becoming a better me.

I am weak, have sinned, failed and made many mistakes in my lifetime. These attributes, flaws, and differences, however, are all a part of my unique human experience. I will never be perfect, maybe not even the person you want me to be or become. But I will continue to be the authentic me…for that is all that I was designed to be. And as I accept you for who you are, all that I ask is that you also accept me for who I am. We can be friends and unconditional in our love for one another. We can enjoy our lives together and share on a much more empowering level. I am not a bad person just because I do something that might be perceived and labeled “bad.” I am only a person who has committed a bad act. I’m not a good person when I do positive things; I am just a person who has done something positive. I accept myself regardless of my successes or failures. I am comfortable being myself without trying to prove myself. I can critique my actions without criticizing the outcomes. I can compliment my behavior without being self-centered. I believe that accepting and embracing my uniqueness is better than trying to prove and/or berate myself. I humbly admit that I have my weak points, but they do not define who I am. I do not feel the need to define who I am nor do I seek to be defined…I am just diligently working on being more refined.

Success is great but it doesn’t make me a better person. I will not, at any time, struggle to prove that I am a good or bad person. “I am”…nothing more, nothing less. The best and most empowering thing I can and will do is to be who I am as I continue to grow into who I will ultimately become. With an open mind and loving heart, I am who I am and openly share the value of being human and accepting myself with you. And, as I grow into a better me, “Enjoying A Better You” is what you are being challenged to do. Let’s mellow into the moment together and grow into a new and exciting phase of our lives fully fueled by the knowledge that we can embrace self-acceptance and joyfully welcome it into our lives.

Just Let It Go, You’re Only Hurting Yourself!

Do you feel disrespected? Are you harboring old wounds? Frightened? Angry? Ashamed or Guilty? Need to forgive someone or apologize? Need to treat yourself better? Need to let go? Are you stubborn and blaming others? Do you take responsibility for your crap? Are you loving you some you? Are you respecting yourself and others? Do you consider yourself positive but speak negatively? Are people bringing you negative energy! LET IT GO, YOU’RE ONLY HURTING YOURSELF! The other person probably doesn’t know how you feel or even care! I’ll say that again so you can hear me. “The other person probably doesn’t know how you feel or even care!”

Sit down and tell yourself the truth about it all!

Tell yourself the truth, the truth is absolute, the same today as it was yesterday and will be tomorrow, it’s eternal. When you’re courageous enough to examine the truth! You’ll eliminate needs to be anything other than what you are. The Truth allows you to just “BE!” If you really want to make a difference! Look in the mirror and tell yourself the truth about you! He who lies to himself is a fool! Are you a fool? Take responsibility for the role you’ve played in the drama in your life. You were there and you participated in the event. So don’t say you had nothing to do with it, you had something to do with it! Whether it was major or minor is irrelevant, take responsibility for your part. Forgive yourself for the things you’ve done and forgive others for what they’ve done to you. Holding on and harboring the past will only filter over into every aspect of your life and ruin future relationships. Forgive and move forward and the past can’t follow. Negativity and positivity can’t occupy the same space, so choose to be POSITIVE! If you allow the negative past into your present life, you’ll open the door to all the past crap to enter also, just let it go, you’re only hurting yourself!

Then make a BEHAVIORAL CHANGE that will change the world around you. Hopefully it’ll have a positive ripple effect on the people you meet and pay forward! Be the type of love you want to receive. Open your heart and soul to the abundance of love ever-present in your daily life. It’s boundless but can’t get in unless you’re open. So welcome love into your life and have a wonderful day. Love is your natural existence, so come home, love is waiting for you!

Tell yourself the truth, face it and do it soon, just let go, you’re only hurting yourself!

Believe In You!

There are times when we believe in everything and everybody but ourselves. We tend to search for mentors, role models and teachers, when they all exist within us, we’re complete.

We’ll never receive a more brutal beating than the one that we inflict upon ourselves. We make one mistake and we count ourselves out before we get started. He who says he can and can’t is always right!

We beat ourselves down into a state of depression and don’t forgive ourselves and move forward. Dwelling in that shallow puddle of water and have misery for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

But you must lift yourself up and move forward forgiving yourself for errors, change the behavior and remember when you do something bad, it doesn’t make you a bad person. It makes you a person exhibiting a bad behavior, so change the behavior and love yourself more. Have compassion, love and kindness for your being. This should be the starting point of your day and all that enters your day.

Have you cried? Well if you cry about something today, don’t you cry a minute past midnight! Crying may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning (Psalms 30:5). Dry your eyes at midnight it’s over.

Rise up, love yourself and put a smile on your face. It’s a new day and joy is here! Today get your bibles and read Psalms 30 completely and extol God for lifting you up each day to live and share the love which is your natural existence. Believe in you, trust in you, have faith in you!

1.  Be open and honest with you about you!

2. Have faith your dreams will come true, move towards them and wait earnestly!

3. Don’t worry or become anxious, it blocks your connection with the divine spirit from which all blessings flow!

4. Discover the Authentic You by living in a state of conscious awareness and the truth!

The Altar of Sacrifice!

When your dreams or goals aren’t coming fast enough and you get frustrated, you may be holding on too tight. You must let go and let God handle it, showing trust and faith he’ll come through. Choose to be happy regardless of life’s circumstances, circumstances change and you should always have faith in your dreams coming true.

Release it to God and watch God work!!!

Just say, “God I desire to have positive results in my life and I pray in the name of Jesus for it. I’m releasing it to you to do as you will. I have faith you’ll take me where I’m supposed to be. Amen!” Then take positive steps toward your dreams and desires worry free and wait earnestly!

Don’t become so consumed with your dreams, wants and desires. Surrender all and let it go. Lay it on the “altar of sacrifice” and let it go! When one door closes another opens on your road to your destiny. There’s freedom in giving up control, it belongs to God not you. Put on your coat of love  and peace, knowing the divine spirit has control and you’ll get what’s yours in due time.

So relax! You don’t have to be worried or frustrated, God is working overtime for you. If you put your trust in the Lord you’ll never be permanently disappointed. You can be happy right where you are, so be grateful. God has it all figured out. Anything you feel you have to have the enemy will use against you. So lay it on the alter and move freely and peacefully. Put it in God’s hands! He’s the one that gave you your dreams, and also laid the blueprint for you to follow.

He’ll make setbacks a comeback. Release your worries and concerns to God, your best days are ahead of you.

Lay it on the “Altar of Sacrifice” and let it go!

Live A Purpose Driven Life!

What is your purpose? What is your destiny? Have you known for some time what you are meant to do, but you just aren’t sure how to transfer it to your life? Are you still searching for that path you can call your own?

Everyone is blessed with certain gifts, talents and personality traits that can be transferred into a fulfilling, satisfying and wonderful life. Some people know at a young age what they want to be when they grow up. Others, like me, find their purpose through an evolvement of life’s experiences and challenges. Either way, you come to find that it is perfectly right for you.
I truly believe that you have the full potential to feel, develop and achieve your dreams. Yes, you can do it! One of the things that is sad, is when someone with such potential for greatness, is not allowing themselves to step into it and fully own it.

As you commit to living a life of purpose, what drives you may still feel a bit elusive. Many people have no idea if they have a real purpose on earth. Your life purpose is most likely connected to the areas that create passion and meaning in your life.

Get in touch with what really matters to you in the world and in your life. What do you get passionate talking about, doing or exploring? Before taking action or steps think about what gives you that inner surge of excitement. This could be the most important key for long-term staying power and success.

Gather your thoughts and focus your energy towards these ideas. Find a way to involve yourself in this activity. Explore several possibilities before settling on one. However, if one really moves you, go for it!

Connect with other people on a regular basis who are passionate about the same ideals or activities. See how you feel in this new area of movement. Does it stir your passionate energy? This is known as “alignment,” or “being in harmony.” When we are expressing our true inner thoughts, beliefs and ideals through external actions that match those thoughts, beliefs and ideals, we are operating in harmony rather than in conflict. We are practicing what we preach and the flow is smooth and continuous.

Not doing what you love is detrimental to your health, it breaks down your body and being quickly.

Most people think that doing what you love is a luxury, so they settle for something they don’t enjoy. Someone who loves what they’re doing will always perform better than those who don’t. This person will eventually be greatly rewarded because this work matters to them. Part of what you’ll get from being out of alignment in your work is dissatisfaction and burnout. You’ll become bitter and unpleasant, people will not enjoy being around you.

So seek living a purposeful life and enjoy the benefits of doing what you love. I know you can do it. After all, it’s your greatness I am talking about.

Live with Purpose and step into the greatness meant for you! “Mellow Into The Moment” and start “Enjoying A Better You!”

People May Think You’re Crazy! Still move Forward!

Jesus Family thought he was crazy! Jesus family heard what he was doing, they thought he was crazy and wanted to get him under control! His mother and brothers went to see Jesus and bring him home. Even the people in his village thought he was beside himself!

Whatever course you decide upon there will be people who think you’re crazy, not worthy, have low expectations of you or just want to hold you back. Difficulties will arise and your critic’s will smile and say, “I told you so!”  Don’t listen to them, they don’t have a clue concerning your divine order and what’s in store for you.

Don’t deny yourself because of someone else’s opinion of you, lack of belief in you or thinking you’re not in your right mind. Step up and make a choice to succeed. Your life changes the moment you flip the switch and make a decision to do something different to obtain a different result towards your positive growth. Don’t stand stagnant with the masses! Change and move forward! Change doesn’t take years it happens in a moment. Just flip the switch, have faith and don’t worry about others thinking you’re crazy!

Have the courage and faith to see beyond your critics, beyond your family, friends and others opinion of you!

What Is Your Spiritual Plan?

Let’s start the work week off by remembering, acknowledging, trusting, having faith and expressing gratitude for the divine spirit seeing us through and bringing us to this exact moment in time. Now do you have a clear spiritual plan? Do you know where you want to be and where you’re headed? You cannot achieve success without spiritual stamina and strength. How do you achieve and maintain it?

A spiritual plan clearly states your intentions, what growth you want to experience within yourself and what needs to be done to make it happen. It’s not only prayer and meditation but it’s actions concerning what you will and wont do and what you can and can’t, in order to achieve your goal. You must be willing to have a real open honest heart to heart talk with yourself about where you are and how you arrived there. Then you’ll have to truthfully ask yourself if that’s where you want to be. If not you must make a behavioral change to eliminate or incorporate what’s needed to grow forward. This must be done for you and by you, if you’re really serious about spiritual growth.

Take the time to examine where you are, how you got there and what’s needed to get through it and grow. You can’t grow spiritually until you clear the way and you must have a plan to clear the way.

Assuming Isn’t Clarity!

During your lifetime you’ll meet people who assume they have all the answers, some who think they know and some who are total impostors of understanding. They’ll smile and laugh with you all the while leading you down the wrong road. They’ll tell you all is well and you should feel great about what they’re saying, “trust me” is what they’ll say. They’ll tell you they understand, they’ll tell you they know and want you to be comfortable with their decisions because, THEY KNOW!

But when it comes to the confirmation of understanding, all you’ll get from them is bad representation, communication and interpretation. Then in the end you’ll be blamed for all that has happened due to the misunderstanding. Sounds crazy huh? This happens everyday, all over the world.

People will mimic knowledge, kindness, love, honor, respect, compassion and concern to uplift themselves and convince you their on your side. Then they’ll abandon you, leaving you wondering what happened and why!

When this occurs don’t be shocked and surprised. When dealing with other people you must accept they’re not always on your side  or the same page as you. You must heighten your level of awareness and consciousness, so you’ll have a better chance of gaining clarity in the beginning and not when it’s too late. Unless you seek clarity in the beginning and stop assuming people know what you want, where you’re headed, you’ll end up behind the eight ball in awkward situations in life. People will continue to impersonate and mislead you until you take responsibility to make sure, YOU KNOW!

Assuming isn’t clarity, KNOWING IS! Take the time to gain clarity in all situations, it’ll make life’s direction clearer and smoother. Don’t assume others know how you feel, what you want or expect. Express yourself clearly by defining what you want and what you expect to happen.

Clarify what you’re saying, what you expect, what you understand and know, not assume! GAIN CLARITY!
