Simply Be…

Waking up and breathing in the newly created day,
imagination runs wild with visions of possibility.
Aware of my own self and my part in this creation,
Moving with my own purpose at hand…
To be the best me I can be.

Doing what comes naturally, I simply am.
Many will read far to little, or far too much,
into that innocent notion.
And yet, I can’t help but wonder why?
We’ve have been told who we are from the beginning…

Many teach it a different way, causing doubt, fear,
desolation, and even the need for repentance.
I assure you, though, that is not it…
The way is vastly less complicated…
We’ve been told it’s more child-like…

So be who you are, there’s no need to fear…
Harming none, respecting all,
as the many great sages of old have taught.
Embrace your potential, Divine in your birth,
Glory and Honor await your recognition!

My “Lord’s Prayer”

In Spirit & love,
We come before you today,
Precious Mother/Father Creator;

Thank You for this glorious day,
Thank You for the people I will encounter and
for those whose lives will touch mine.

Thank you for the blessings in my life today,
My Family,
My Friends (who are also part of my family),
The food that will nourish body, mind and soul,
The courage  to face my challenges,
The Faith to know you are always with me to surround me,
My Strength in the face of adversity.

Today, please use me as a vessel of love and encouragement
from which others can draw,
And let my soul reach out and caress others in need.

Let Your Light and Love rain down on all who desire you care,
Today, and forevermore…

Divine Heritage

We are ALL children of Divine Majesty…making us “royal heirs” to a mighty kingdom.  And it does not matter to WHAT religion you adhere, the truth is simple…You are Divine…Do not let someone coax you into giving up your precious birthright.

With such “power” also comes massive, but simple, responsibility…to make sure that every single one of our sisters and brothers achieves their own truth…their expression of Our Divine Parentage.  As vessels of the attributes of Blessed Creation, love should imbue every cell in our body as our very being illuminates the world.  Is it not true that The Supreme truly embodies love and light?

Let nothing hold you back from pursuing your sacred heritage.  May your Soul shine forth today as the essence of who you are radiates outward, inspiring our noble siblings to embrace their greatness.

Spiritual Appetite…

We’ve all heard the saying, “You are what you eat” (and some us of reflect that!!!), but have we ever considered that with regards to our spirituality?  What if we modified it to “You are what you pray?”

Do you pray for the good of the person for whom you are praying, or do you pray selfishly?  Do you think positive thoughts for people (another form of prayer!), or are your thoughts self-serving?  Once, one of my friends admitted she was praying against what I wanted because she did not want me to move forward to the next phase of my life…She wanted me to stay where I was…How do you think Karma affected that situation?  I did get my desire to move forward, by the way!

AND…if you will pray/send thoughts like this for a friend, how, spiritually, are you treating those you consider your enemy?  What does the Bible have to say about that???  Matthew 5:44 says, “…love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those insulting you and persecuting you…” and why?  Because what reward is there if you love only those who love you…How can you grow, if you do what is “safe?”  The bible tells us that, too…it also says Our Creator sends both sun and rain to the good and evil…but for us to be perfect, as Our Creator in heaven is perfect.

We’ve talked about praying and meditating so much that it becomes SO routine that your subconscious actually thinks positive thoughts on its own…but, likewise, we can “train” our subconscious to think negatively, as well…And that will come back to bite you if you are not careful…Remember Karma…what goes around comes around???

I challenge you, today, to start a campaign for the positive…if you catch yourself thinking negatively about someone, or even something, find something positive to think for the situation, no matter how small…before you no it, all your thoughts will be positive and your Spiritual Appetite will be more than satisfied!

Joining With Others…

A lot of what may come out on this blog may seem repetitive, and I will apologize in advance for that.  As we all know, thought, repetition is a key to retention.  This blog is as much about me finding our own inspiration as it is reaching out to others, and in doing so, we are learning something with every post.

As I was in the middle of my morning meditation/prayer session, I was pretty much doing what I do, and as has become my normal practice, I asked that my positive prayers and energy for those in need be joined with others praying in love and light and for positive energy and outcome, I realized something important for me.  Remember the great teaching in the Bible, “…if two of you agree on earth concerning any matter that they ask, it shall be done for them…For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am…” (Matt 18:19-20).

Everyone who has ever gone to church for any length of time has heard this teaching.  BUT…did we honestly get it’s meaning?  During my session, this morning, it dawned on me that if we JOIN our positive meditations and prayers, even if and when we are praying alone, to others who are meditating/praying for positive outcomes, we have just joined with another, or others, in the same quest!

Why not “invite” others who are meditating/praying similar things for the world and for others, or even for the same person, to “join” your thoughts and prayers in the Spiritual realm.  (Be sure to quantify your wish to join others by stating to join others sending the same or similar energy…positive love and light…or you might get a nasty surprise!)  That way, our seemingly small intention becomes one huge desire for friends, family, others, the planet…just whatever needs the energy…And, as I have said, before, praying for the whole planet cannot be a bad thing…

Magnificent, Instead!

What cares do I have, that eat up my days,
drive me insane with worry and pain.
How did I get them, from where did they come?
I search deep down, to the pit of my soul,
and find their not there, so is my search done?

Then a very small voice, so still and alive,
beckons me listen, so I’m not deprived.
“Your worry’s, your problems” it says with such force,
“Are troubling for sure, but derive from mankind…
I would not wish them for you, not ever, of course.”

“You are My Dear Child, and only the best,
is what you deserve, yet time you do waste,
searching for things which hold no meaning for you,
wondering blindly, stumbling round in the dark.
Why do you do that?  Better get on the move!”

“You have lots to accomplish, things to get done.
Things to experience, get out, have some fun!
You’re truly Divine, accept it, move ahead!
Shed the thick coat of troubles you’ve wrapped round yourself.
Embrace who you are, be magnificent, instead!”

Expression Unfolding…

Moving toward the unknown,
away from the comfortable,
Adrenaline rushes, emotions scatter.

Fear of the unfamiliar,
heightens as we progress,
but we’re not turning back.

Our adventure begins,
moving slowly, at first,
as our elation wells.

There’s only one way to continue,
Swallow pride, forget the past,
catch our breath and press on.

Forage our own way, something we can respect.
Nothing desolate or dark, desperate or lonely.
More souls than you know are seeking the same.

Tranquility ushers forth out of the depths of the chaotic,
Only now do we comprehend our journey’s purpose,
as the truth penetrates deep into our core.

We awaken, one day, to the truth of our purpose.
A notion more powerful than yet we’ve envisioned
Only then do we become what we’ve been created to be…
An emaculate expression of the passion of Our Beloved…

About Prayer…

The Bible tells us to “pray without ceasing” and for many of us, we feel we have no time for that…The Bible also tells us not to ramble on when we pray, so, wouldn’t “praying without ceasing” be considered “rambling on?”

Let me just say, from my own experience, when you apply positive energy and meditative prayer to your daily life, and you just say fast prayers throughout the day, on a regular basis, you will find that you will catch yourself actually praying for others when you didn’t even know you were!

What a blessing…You are literally “praying without ceasing!”  How amazing is that!?!  AND, if you keep it short, it is really easy to send that positive energy to others throughout the day, training your subconscious to continue it!!!

SOOOO…with that being said, I would like to remind you that Our Beloved knows EXACTLY what everyone on this earth needs…and you can pray for EVERYONE by simply using a few words…this is just a suggestion;

Blessed Divine, Mother and Father to us all, Creator of all things, the people of this world are in search of help…You know what they need, You know what they are striving for.  May Your love, light and grace bless them where they are, and focus their attention on their intention…Thank You for Your guidance, understanding and, most of all, Your love and light in my life.  So be it!

You can find something as simple and easy that suits you…and viola…you are praying for the whole world!!!

If things don’t get better, don’t get discouraged, just keep sending that positive energy!  You need to remember one of the most important things about positive energy and prayer…people need to be willing to accept it!  It still doesn’t hurt to continue praying for everyone…Who knows when someone will “let their guard down” and actually accept someone else’s positivity into their lives!?!  And, their outcome is not up to us, it is ultimately up to them…But, again, it does us absolutely NO HARM to put the positive out there…NONE!  Ever heard “what goes around comes around?”  Yep, you put positive energy out there, and you will be blessed!

So…get to it!  Send out all the positivity you can…and may you reap the blessings of your own positive nature!

A New Body? ExCELLent…

There are many things that fascinate me.  I have been on a quest for as much knowledge as I can possibly get.  As I come across things, I am ever learning new things…much to my delight.  Much of these are spiritual, some are political (I am an independent political researcher by day!), some is gardening, and yet others still are related to alternative therapies.

I have always “known” deep down inside that our bodies were made in such a way that, given the proper nutrition and rest, they could heal themselves.  I took biology in high school and college, but must have missed the lesson that captured my attention a few years back while reading that our cells are constantly regenerating…some do it in seconds, some minutes, and still others in years, but they all regenerate…So literally, you can have a “new body” in a matter of years!!!

It is harder to get people (even me!!!) to understand, these days, in our fast paced, instant gratification world that we really do need to eat better, exercise and get the proper rest, for our bodies to be able to do this magnificent thing!  I am not a biologist, by any means, but I do understand cell division…I also understand that with all the impurities and chemicals in our food, water…and air…and the depletion of nutrients in our soil, we do face many challenges with regards to the possibility of regenerating “pure” cells, but I still feel, deep down, that it can be done.

It seems to me that our first step needs to be listen to our bodies.  We might also consider doing a cleanse or two…Next, commit to changing our diet for the better.  Get rid of processed and fast foods…don’t try to do a “cold turkey” sort of approach, but don’t take forever with it, either.  (You can always grow your own, which kind of helps out in the exercise department, as well!)

Next, we need to find and stick to a proper bedtime schedule.  A dear friend of mine told me that he had found in his research sleep before midnight was the most regenerating.  Next we need to find and commit to a a varied exercise program…Walking, swimming, running, pilates, some sort of sport, yoga, tai chi, Qi Gong,  just a mix of things that will get your body and joints moving…While we are at it, let’s not forget to keep our mind active and grow, spiritually.

I am convinced within myself that we can all be better, healthier and live longer without pumping our bodies full of artificial chemicals and impurities…We are magnificent creatures, capable of anything…but we must be willing to participate…

Today’s Journey

Today’s journey is a new adventure.  During the adventure, strive to be a better conduit for positive change, for the work of Our Divine Creator.

Move throughout the day in reverence, humbleness, and thanksgiving.

Treasure each moment, for time is short and events can be changed.

Be aware of the energy around you, direct positive energy where needed.

Realize that events may have been foretold in Scripture like they were because Our Mother/Father Creator knew that humankind might choose the path of complacency, thus leading to the unfolding of pestilence, war, death and destruction.

As your journey unfolds, dare to make a difference, choose wisely, act with grace and diginity.

Approach all with a clear mind and a heart full of love – guided by Our Divine.

We can do all things if we believe we can!
