ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS

©Sandy Rodgers Ministries

 September 24th

Now that you have graciously and willing surrendered to Success, it is time to celebrate!

Celebrate the endings that have taken place over this past month. Celebrate their presence for however long you allowed them to stay with you.

Celebrate your choice to release them back into their place of nothingness. Celebrate your strength in letting them each go, one by one. Celebrate your conviction to permanently removing those stubborn elements of that false self, sometimes referred to as ego.

Salute your new beginnings. Salute with full attention to receiving bountiful blessings and miracles unfolding daily for you. Salute your courage and tenacity to stay on target of your dreams and goals. Salute with pride of purpose that you have maintained your sight on the prize of achievement.

Today we each say Yes to Life. We say Yes to Success and wonder. We declare our victory over our own self-imposed limitations and fears. We have come a long way yet we realize we have a long way to go. We are strong soldiers, worthy warriors in this new day of possibilities. We say Yes to the Truth to our very worthiness and being deserving of the richness of this vast Universe.

Today we both celebrate and salute the person we are and are becoming. We are winning our individual races with pride and joy. We are victorious and shout it loud with confidence.

We trust that we are being divinely led and protected at each turn and bend in the path. We trust that God is always with us. We feel the Presence and the Power of The One Source. We welcome The Most High into our hearts and thoughts.

NON-RESISTANCE

© Sandy Rodgers Ministries

 September 23rd

Nonresistance means to fully surrender to the situation you are in at the present moment. It also means not to fight or attempt to change it. It means to allow things to flow as they are, not to dam up the process. Not to cause or create a disturbance in the natural rhythm of things.

The act of non-resistance can be challenging to say the least. However it is the best gift you can give yourself. The Blessings that come from periods of nonresistance are immeasurable. By you getting out of your own way, you permit the unknown miraculous workings to take shape and manifest for you. You will be pleasantly pleased with each outcome, even if it appears as one of your many lessons in life. We have a human tendency to think that only those things we judge as good, to be a blessing for us. To the contrary, you will learn more in adversity than you will in good times about who you truly are. My son, Malcolm, taught me this lesson while he was a freshman in College.

To just be present in the now is nonresistance. To participate fully in each activity you are engaged in is non-resistance. To love without conditions of either yourself or the person is non-resistance. To continually strive for excellence in all you do is non-resistance. To accept all others, regardless of their status is non-resistance. To trust the process of life, is true nonresistance.

Non-resistance is gently flowing with the tides of life. All struggles are kin to the distant relative of non-resistance. There is no struggle in nonresistance.

God dwells in non-resistance. The Dao and Buddha are non-resistance.

Peacekeepers and Peacemakers are perfect examples of non-resistance.

The One Source, The Infinite One, The Most High, The Creator are all non-resistance Specialists.

GOD ONLY KNOWS

 September 22nd

On the television series, ‘House’, as I watched the final episode I heard the main character answer a question posed to him – “What are you going to do now?” His reply was “God only knows”. That touched my heart and has remained with me.

It brings to mind so many questions. If this is correct and God only knows what my future will be then why am I so worried about my present conditions? There is so much comfort in this. To accept the Blessings of being guided and protected by The Supreme Being, will leave you with such Peace.

Of course one must believe this to be true for them for it to work in and through their life. One must be in communications with The Omnipotent Presence to experience this Love and Protection, the knowing that it is real! Prayer and meditation are surefire ways of being in contact with the Force that sustains life in every living creature.

Prayer is your talking to God and through mediation you receive your answers and directions. One must allow the flow to happen and not attempt to control or manipulate it in any way. We are required to listen and be obedient to the answers that will come to us. That is all.

I am thrilled and excited beyond words to trust and know that God Only Knows what my future holds!!! I mold myself into the human manifestation of Unconditional Love, Forgiveness, Harmony and Peace that I believe God would have me to be. I welcome and respect all of God’s creations. None is more or less important than the other. Each has their special place in the Kingdom here on earth. I live as perfectly as possible the example of God’s Love as I understand it.

Praises go up and up! Blessings come pouring down!

God Only Knows what is next!!!

LIFE AND LEARNING

 September 21st

Life is Amazing and living it is Awesome! Do you actively engage in living fully each day? Do you experience the awe in the dawning of a new day? It is an experience you have never had before. Hence the reason it is called ‘A New Day’.

I treasure the golden opportunities that each day brings. I know I can use this time as I choose, regardless to whether I acknowledge that or not. This brand new day is my gift from The Creator.

I love living life to the fullest extent possible. I love to explore new ways of doing things and meeting new people. I hunger for the knowledge of expanding my awareness through people of various backgrounds and ethnicity. I yearn to know more about how we are similar and our differences. I have translated for several Vietnamese men who have served me as my nail technicians. One I helped to learn the English language, years earlier, to prepare to take his state licensing test. Another I recently helped with a fraudulent credit card billing. Although the language is a little different I was able to help in both situations. When asked by the credit card company was I a relative, I smiled to myself thinking yes however my answer was no just an interpreter.

I have observed numerous situations where I can be of service to others and I willingly do so. I have grown to enjoy each and every single moment of the day. It is so exciting to go about the day like an explorer going on an exhibition of uncharted territory. That is what life is like, exploring an unchartered land. I have never lived this particular day before and will never live it again. So my journey into the unknown begins right now.

I step out into the vast Universe and gladly welcome the new experiences I will have present on my path today.

Life is Amazing and living it is Awesome!

STRETCH TO SUCCESS

  September 20th

Go so far beyond your comfort zone today that you touch success!

Stretch to those dreams, your dreams. Keep going until it feels very uncomfortable, like it is beginning to hurt. Stretch is the way to get you to where you say you desire to go and be.

It is the extra movement that will benefit you in the long haul of success. There is a Power that is waiting for you to stretch and touch. God is calling your name and anointing you with success. Are you willing to relinquish that old familiar routine to accomplish your goals today?

Okay, then all that is being asked of you is to do that which you have identified as being important to you. Stretch and keep stretching. Success is directly in front of you. You are only a millimeter away, keep going. Yes there it is.

Now that feels great! You have used those dormant muscles and you are so excited. You feel a sense of wonder in it all. How could I have waited all this time before realizing my dream? Well do not concern yourself with the limits you placed on yourself yesterday. That is all done and gone. Today is your day to celebrate.

Celebrate your victory of overcoming fear! We are all very proud of you. You acknowledged the agony and did not allow it to stop or hinder you. You welcomed the pain in the stretch and kept going.

Yes we all feel your excitement and your accomplishments. We feel your overwhelming Joy. We honor you for your relentless pursuit of your Success!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! YOU DESERVE THIS HONOR!!!

LOVE

 September 19th

This is a favorite subject. Think about Love and you begin to smile. You may think about the Love of your parents or a child; an elder or friend; a significant other; or a pet. Love can be represented by the appreciation of nature, as in loving to hear the birds sing or watching the energy of a puppy getting tangled up as they play endlessly.

Love is an instant cure for health ailments and worry. Being in the state of Love is magical indeed. In this state of emotions you glow and have a sense of belonging to everything around you. Love is all inclusive, nothing is ever left out. I love being in love. I stay in love with me, first and foremost. I simply admire who I have become. I love the fact that I have gone through the pain of releasing all the guilt and shame that once occupied my every waking moment with negative emotions. I love that I am a conqueror over all the seeming disasters of my past. I love me just the way I am currently. Yes there are still some changes to be made but I am not waiting until every little thing is how I want to see it before loving myself. I love me right now, right this exact moment in time.

I attract the love of others as I remain in love with me. It is incredible, the love I receive from so many people. Some of these folks I hardly know. Some have been and are watching me from afar. Some do not even speak the same language as I but love me all the same.

Love is awesome. Love just is. Love mends old wounds and scars. Love offers hope for the present and future. Love just is. Love extended out returns to you multiplied. Love radiates and purifies the air you breathe. Love makes happy the cells in your body. Love just is.

Be in love today. Be in love with you, you are the perfect agent for this magical emotion. Be Love today. Express it in all you do and say. Show Love today to those around you.

Love; Period, end of sentence, end of story!!!

REARRANGE

© Sandy Rodgers Ministries

 September 18th

My life requires rearranging from time to time. When I sense the energy is stagnant, it is time for movement. This does not imply that something is wrong just that rearranging is in order.

Change the furniture around in your residence and witness the shift of energy. Move the sofa/couch, add pillows to it or throw a colorful piece of fabric on it. Make space and allow energy to flow in your residence. Throw things or give things away if you are cluttered. Too many articles can suffocate you and prevent you from enjoying the feeling of freedom.

Do you have areas that you ignore and pretend as if they do not exist? Perhaps a crowded closet or junk drawer or a garage could benefit from your attention. Decide today to clear one area.

Rearrange your clothes closets so that you know where things are located. Separate the clothing by season or color or by identification. All tops together, all bottoms together or blues first then reds. It’s your choice and by doing this little chore you will find clothing that you had forgotten you had.

With this same attitude of arranging, consider your thoughts and perceptions about life and living. Are there some thoughts you could discord and replace with more positive, productive ones? Are there some actions you could implement into your daily life that would have a huge impact on how you feel from day to day?

Rearranging requires you to look at a particular thing and consciously decide to change it. You can always change it back to its original state. This is one of those cost effective measures that can benefit you and not cost you anything. It might even open you up to new possibilities! Surely you will discover a different way to do the same thing. You are exercising creativity.
