Spiritual Awareness: Be Wholey, People!

Image
Whether or not you chose to believe that there is a source that is been responsible for our existence, there is something to be said about the ability for us humans to change our circumstances. We accomplish this by the power of our mind. From that point of origin you can affect your thoughts, the actions you take, the feelings you have and discern whether or not an outcome is beneficial to you.
I choose to believe there is Something out there and that I am connected to it. I am not going to take you down my personal rabbit hole and share this with you today. But what I am going to briefly discuss is a distinct possibility available to all of us. It’s the chance to become whole. I bet many of you never thought you were operating on half a spirit, right?


Allow me to break it down. If you are one of those people who choose to believe in something brought you here into existence, then there is one fundamental truth that you will discover as you start asking for answers: Whatever IT is, …

Spiritual Awareness: The Twelve Laws of The Universe

Image
One of the most common universal laws of the universe that people are familiar with is the Law of Attraction. Movies like The Secret have made this law somewhat popular. Basically this law states that whatever you are like, you will attract. I can tell you that this is true. The Law of Attraction can have a fundamental impact on your life.


But what most people do not realize is that there are an additional eleven metaphysical laws that govern the universe. If we were to become more conscious of them, learn to understand and utilize all of them effectively, life would be pretty amazing.
The 12 Metaphysical Laws are:
 The Law of Divine Oneness
The Law of Vibration
The Law of Action

The Law of Correspondence

The Law of Cause and Effect

The Law of Attraction

The Law of Compensation

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy

The Law of Relativity

The Law of Polarity

The Law of Rhythm

The Law of Gender

I am going to start a series about the laws. I realized as I was putting this post tog…

Positivity: Run For Your Life

Image
I run because it’s so symbolic of life.
You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can’t.
But then you find your inner strength, and realize you’re capable of so much more than you thought.
-Arthur Blank


You were born into a race, you just did not know.  You started out with baby steps, a little spirit, with tiny feet, just learning how to walk. You grew and your legs got stronger, you walked with a bit more confidence. Then at some point you broke into a run and comfortable jog. Then maybe at some point you got distracted and your path turned into quicksand and you found yourself stuck. Or maybe you didn't get stuck, you just got winded and stopped at the side of the road, sat down and watched the other runners pass on by.


This story may seem familiar to you; I know it’s familiar to me. It is synopsis of my life. I was running from my childhood, despite hurdles, such as ingrained beliefs. I jumped over those hurdles at some point, and started…

Positivity: The Path Of The Extraordinary

Image
Unlikely accomplishments are borne out of single-minded purposefulness.
Future superstars don't get there by keeping part of their heart in reserve.
~ John Eliot, Ph.D.
At certain time the path of the extraordinary is a very quiet one. It actually starts out quite normally and as you continue to walk down the path you begin to realize less people are walking with you. It’s a very peaceful place and at times it may feel lonely, but in truth it is not. The climb to the top of the Mountain of Your Purpose starts out with many and ends with a few.
David Hawkins’ Scale of Consciousness is a tool that I am glad to have come by. As a matter of fact I referenced it to a new coworker this week, as she like many others had never heard of it before. As you travel down life’s path the scale is a great gauge to see where you fall on the scale of mental and spiritual awareness. I know that I am living in my power and not by force and I generally vacillate between the top four levels: peace, j…

Purpose: Purposeful Messages

Image
“God makes each one of us for the time into which we are born. He creates us for a purpose.
Our job is to know Him well, discover what He created us to do, and then do it for all we're worth for the rest of our lives. Ask God to show you your purpose. He will answer.”
― Robin Lee Hatcher, Fit to Be Tied


There are moments of clarity as you walk on purpose. This past weekend was one of those weekends for me. It was the Weekend of Love, Valentine’s Day falling on a Saturday. I spent time with friends and family and shared many insights and epiphanies. All this wonderful information culminated on Sunday when I accepted an invitation to listen to Jeremy Foster the pastor of Hope City in Houston.  I have always had a curiosity about the way other people worshiped and I was pleasantly surprised by this experience. I went in with an open mind. While I no longer feel belonging to a specific congregation is within my spirit’s desire, I can certainly appreciate all forms of thought and inf…

Spiritual Awareness: Oh Divine Love

Image
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.
-1 Corinthians 13:4-7 New International Version (NIV)

It’s February 14th, Valentine’s Day and it’s actually the first time in my life I am acknowledging it. It’s day of flowers and chocolate and gifts galore. A day designated for people to focus on another person and show their love. It’s such an important day for many people!
However the reason why it’s such an interesting day for me is because I actually feel the depth and brevity that goes with that force that we humans feel as an emotion. But I feel it like this all the time. Divine Love is what we are all here to learn. Our spirits are love in itself and basically this whole human experience is a beauti…

Spiritual Awareness: The Funny Empath

Image
“Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a 'hot mess' or having 'too many issues' are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.”
― Anthon St. Maarten

I write this post about being an empath in a somewhat tongue-in-cheek manner. At times I do have to laugh at myself because of the experiences I have had over the years.

It took me a while to accept the term, mainly because I do not like to label myself. But it’s the only way I can properly describe something I have been dealing with from childhood. In the simplest terms an emp…

Positivity: 2015-The Year Of Good Vibes

Image
“Let it come, let it go, let it flow.”
 ―Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche



Toward the end of 2014, I had started my usual checklist that I use to start the clearing out process that I do prior to each New Year. I start early because I love to go into the next year ahead of myself.

I always give myself timeframes to get things done. I like the number three; I see it as a lucky number of sorts. So I looked back at the timeframe between 2012 and 2014 to see what I needed to clear out of my vibrational field. I needed to clear anything I was holding on to that was creating energetic blockage, physically or spiritually.

I went through and cleared out any physical items in my home that I no longer needed or had any attachments to that could be holding me down in anyway. After I was finished I turned my attention to the spiritual things in my life I needed to release.

Because of the life I want to lead and the work I want to do, I had to clear away from my spirit any and everything that was c…

Positivity: Just One Person

Image
Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment.
-Morihei Ueshiba

This is a post of caution. It’s a gentle warning to all of you with generous, kind and willing hearts. This post is for those of you who open up your lives to share with others the experience that is unfolding in your lives. This message is for the lovers and the givers. If you are thinking of remotely wanting to step out and make a difference in just one person’s life, there is something you should know.
Once you develop a sincere desire to help others, to touch another soul, and you express it, you call unto yourself an enormous transformative energy. This transformation that you will go through is to align you with the universal force that promotes change. Once you start down this road everything will be maneuvered in your life so that your purpose is completely harmonious w…

Spiritual Awareness: A Heart At Peace

Image
Dignity:
The moment you realize that you can have everything you want in life.
However, it takes timing, the right heart, the right actions, the right passion and a willingness to risk it all.
If it is not yours, it is because you really didn’t want it, need it or God prevented it.
-Shannon Alder
I was always one of those really aware kids. I spent most of my childhood communicating with God mainly because I did not grow up with a father. He is the best guiding force I have had. I came to implicitly trust that relationship and watched as I always seemed to be guided and watched over by some invisible hand throughout my life.  What you are about to read is a clear example of that.
When I was sixteen, I had a conversation with God about what I wanted to experience with the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. I made a simple list of characteristics that described this type of person. I wanted someone who was strong, kind, generous and loving, someone I could love, look u…

Spiritual Awareness: Get Out Of Your Own Way!

Image
“Does it make sense to pray for guidance about the future if we are not obeying in the thing that lies before us today? How many momentous events in Scripture depended on one person's seemingly small act of obedience! Rest assured: Do what God tells you to do now, and, depend upon it, you will be shown what to do next.”
 Elisabeth Elliot

I lead a divinely inspired life. I have learned to be able to identify when something bigger is in control of a situation in my life. One way I know without a doubt that something is being divinely led is when an event happens in which I had no hand or physical intervention. That is what Divine Intervention purely is, God’s hand completely directing a situation in your life. When these events occur I lean in more and allow my spirit to be led through the entire experience.

I have learned in these cases to ask and listen to guidance. I put myself in a space of allowing, because if I do anything to get in the way of the Universe bringing a situatio…
