Are you waiting for permission to grow and flourish? Is your vision set on wonder and possibility? Can you see the tree, Your Oak tree? What are you waiting on to happen before you accept the greatness that is within you? If you are waiting for someone to give you permission then I am giving that to you right now. Right now you have permission to grow like a mighty Oak Tree. Be firmly planted and grounded in the Omniscient, Omnipresence of The Creator. The Most High, DAO, Allah, Buddha, Ascended Masters have passed their DNA on to you, it is within you. Can’t you feel the power in you, deep within you? It is already there just waiting for you to recognize its presence. You are crowned with glory by God. You have been bestowed with a mind of Greatness. Creation lives within you.

In the presence of others, do you take the high road of authenticity or gauge how you show up dependent upon on how the others appear? This is sometimes referred to as peer pressure. And you thought that only applied to children, especially teenagers. Well it does not and guess what, the same small children you are saying this to be watching you and how you show up in the company of others.
Do not compromise your values for the sake of belonging. Isn’t that what we tell our children? Be a leader not a follower, and there we go following the gang because everyone is doing it. As we get older our gang is broader and is often influenced by what we see on television and what we hear in the music. The community at large becomes our gang, the people we hang out with. In this process do you still honor your truth? Or are you following the crowds, the same crowd we warn our children about?
Actions are always much louder than our words. Our children are watching. How we show up! Are your actions consistent with your values? How do you show up? Is the environment the one who sets the tone of what is fashionable and the latest trend? Are your actions consistent with your words?
Is honesty an admirable value? Yet you lie to others often, in the company of your children? What do you think they are learning, that it is okay to lie some of the time, because they hear you doing it? Well if this is how you show up, please do not chastise the children for repeating what you are teaching. Do you holler, scream and curse others when you are upset? But insist upon spanking the child that does the same as you?
How do you show up for yourself? Do you compromise because you feel intimidated by titles or status? Regardless of the position in life we are each the same, a child of God.
Respect yourself and show up as the real you all the time!
I have a friend that once shared with me something his son had told him earlier in life. His son simply said, “Dad there is family and then there’s relatives.” His son was saying in a most innocent manner that not all those in our bloodline are necessarily family. And those that we may not share the same blood with can be closer than those that we do.
I have many members in my family. Yes you are right, not all are from the same linage, either on my mother or father side. My family is large, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and live everywhere around the globe.
I love adding to my family. It seems there is always someone new that belongs to my family. When I relocated I was immediately adopted by a group of men folks that sincerely loved and adored me. Thank God because I knew no one in my new city. I felt blessed because I had just left the family, both immediate and extended, that I had grown to love and cherish.
What I discovered was, there is room enough for everyone when you love from your core of being. You can serve in several positions within the family as well. One of my aforementioned family members was more like a father than anyone else. Yet he was younger than I was. He served in the position with great pride. The others became my brothers or sons.
My larger, extended family now consists of members from all walks of life. They live in Africa, they live in Canada, they are living with the virus, and they are making a better community where I live. They all share a common denominator, their love and appreciation of life.
Describe your family for yourself. Is your family restricted to only those who share the same bloodline with you? You may be missing out on a tremendous blessing if you have never considered adding to your family.
Yes I have relatives also, like anyone else. But I have more family than relatives. Thanks God.
I give thanks today for new beginnings. There is a miracle inside of each beginning. There is also a gift in newness.
In my expectation of a new beginning, I acknowledge I am required to accept endings. I must make room for the newness to enter my reality. I cannot hold two thoughts for the same thing. When my true desire is for newness to be manifested, there will be something that I am required to release. I do so graciously with love.
Are my thoughts in total alignment with my expectations? Perhaps it is time for me to release some old worn out beliefs about what I am entitled to receive in this life. Do I have a habit that prevents me from living the life I desire? I know I am to release it to allow the new beginning to take form and manifest. I gladly release without any attachments. There are no thoughts of lack and scarcity in my newness. I am fully open to receiving all that my heart desires.
I allow goodness to flow into my life and affairs. I remove all blockages in my thoughts and words. I push towards the prize. I accept the gift of newness. A fresh beginning is mine.
I may mourn the leaving of something yet I trust I can and will survive. I choose to live totally in faith and trust the process of renewal. I willingly make room for new beginnings.
I accept new beginnings and I know that all things change. I can choose to accept that new beginnings are a natural occurrence. That each moment represents a new beginning and the moment that has just ended is gone forever. I can never again relive that same moment in time. I am grateful for my wisdom of discernment.
Have you recently gotten a hunch about something and thought to yourself what should I do about that? Was the hunch so extraordinary that it seems almost impossible to achieve? Are you asking yourself where did the hunch come from?
Hunches can be gentle reminders from God that you are still alive with unmet dreams. A friend of mine recently shared that as he watched ‘The Secret’ he closed his eyes and began immediately to remember dreams that he had forgotten about. He said he knew most people who watch the movie are impressed by what the various speakers have to say but for him it was an invitation to revisit the dreams he once had. He said it helped him to dream again.
I have watched a sitcom thinking it was just a distraction and have received some amazing antidote about things that were unfolding for me in my life. It always tickles me because I find hints and hunches in the least likely of places and situations. A silly statement made by one of the characters will remind me of something I have left undone. So I listen all the time for clues.
I choose to follow my hunches. They may not always lead me to a final destination but surely they lead me to a place of higher understanding. I can grasp the unspoken implications and it will trigger something within me.
That hunch of yours may be the next multi- trillion dollar invention. It could be the idea of your next or first business venture. It is not that uncommon to receive inspiration from your hunches. Sometimes I believe God communicates to us in a variety of ways to get our attention in areas where we can be richly blessed and abundantly prospered. So go ahead and look a little deeper into that hunch. Build upon the idea given to you and see what you can build from it. Perhaps it is the very idea to create an improved methodology to end a crisis. What have you got to lose? Nothing is the answer because if it does not lead you to a particular destination you will have gained knowledge along the way of how to do something different. You will have expanded your field of expertise and knowledge base.
Do you remember the childhood game of Mother May I? It is where a group of children gets together and form a circle. One person is chosen to be the leader. The leader gives instructions to the group and if anyone moves before asking Mother May I, they lose and go back to the beginning mark. It is a game children played, asking permission from the person who they identified as being the leader.
As an adult my leader’s name has changed to God. So I ask and wait for an answer. I do not force an answer. I wait or I may possibly be told to go back to the beginning point of the game. Neither do I move without asking first. In my asking I am acknowledging the Head of my life. I am saying, I think I heard the direction, the guidance, the instructions yet I desire to be clear about my next move. God May I?
In prayer and meditation I ask The Source for confirmation. I seek and I wait. I realize that sometimes I can become impatient and want to move ahead before receiving an answer. Not being obedient is no longer an option. I desire for my next step to be governed by My Leader. I ask to seek clarity. I wait trusting that all is working out just as it should, according to The Masters Plan for my life.
God’s answers are always very specific. Yes you may, is the answer I wait to hear before proceeding to the next step. When the answer, as I perceive it, is delayed I sit and be still. This can sometimes be a very nervous time for me because I want to move now and not later. Do I dare risk the cost of starting from the beginning yet again? I think not! In due time and season I move.
God is blessing me right now! I joyously receive my Spiritual answers.
Where is your Passion? Accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. Concentrate and focus on your strengths today. Build those areas up to a point they become areas of brilliance and expertise. Yes accentuate your positive aspects. We each have gifts and talents. What is strength for you may not be strength for someone else. Truly you are not required to do it all.
As we each strengthen those areas we are good in, it builds a massive movement of folks doing those things with great honor that they do well. There is no need to be strong in all areas, some areas are just not suited to you. Build on your strengths and find the resources that you may require in other areas.
Are you an organizer of things? Become an expert in that and offer your services to others. Are you skilled in managing a project after it has been designed? Are you the one who has ease with figuring out the intricate details of a computer? Are you a gifted designer of programs? Are you a great leader of people? Do you love working with numbers?
Whatever your field of expertise, capitalize on that and leave the other to people who are gifted in those areas. I love to write, allowing God to bless me with the written word. I may not always want to go back and edit the work, nor do I enjoy some of the programs on the computer. Sometimes I still use a pen and paper to jot down my ideas. If that is how it comes then that’s what I use. I am Blessed with Wonderful Souls who have served to edit my work with great pride. That is their area of expertise and I sincerely appreciate them and their gifts.
I no longer desire to do it all, at least not all by myself. I look for individuals who are gifted in areas other than mine. We can then bless each other by the sharing of our gifts and talents. And we get to focus on our own true areas of expertise, building them stronger.
Accentuate your positive today. What can you offer to the service of others?
