God’s Calvary can consist of your friends and family; your earthly Angels and/or strangers. The Calvary has come to protect you on the battle field of earth versus heavenly reality.
Your friends are God’s gifts to you. They have each been assigned and placed on your path to serve a particular role in assisting you to get where you say you desire to go and to become who you say you want to become. They have agreed to serve in this position and some roles are for a lifetime while others are temporary. We cannot keep a person who is only here for us temporarily, permanently. This disturbs the balance and may block the next person who is assigned to help us. Friends are gifts.
Your Earth Angels have received their instructions from The Most High. Their duty is to serve and protect you. You know the person who is always available even if you act out with them? The person you seek when you need to hear yourself talk out loud; the person who just knows when to tell you to heed to your warning signs. Earth Angels are a precious commodity and should be handled with extreme care.
Strangers appear when we are so consumed by the physical appearances that we have placed ourselves out of touch with our friends, family or Earth Angels. We feel alienated and alone, afraid to say what we are experiencing. With a stranger we are free to be our self, there is no fear in hearing what we have shared with them. We have a tendency to feel safe expressing who we are with a stranger, someone who does not know our past.
All of these individuals have their respective roles to play in fulfilling the assignments given to them by God. Learn to respect each one for their Blessing in your life.
God uses people as messengers when we are stuck or require guidance.
God’s Calvary is amazing and truly strengthened by Holy Power! Energized by the One Power and Presence that sustains all life!!!
Blending is a gradual process of mixing several ingredients together to become a new mixture. Sometimes it involves liquefying, sometimes chopping and grinding. Regardless of the action required, the result is always the same, several ingredients thoroughly combined together to become a unique new creation of oneness.
As I witnessed the marriage of one of my nephews this thought became crystal clear as it pertains to families or any other ‘mixture’ of people. The different individuals, personalities are all combined to create something new and different.
I watched the youth blending together to create what appeared as one massive unit. They became a blur of unity. All you could see were smiles. All you could feel was harmony. They simply knew how to include each other and blend into having a great time. Teaching and learning from each other the various dance steps. They allowed each other space and time to showcase their individual talents.
As the young adults and elders joined in, it grew and became a larger blur of unity. No one paid attention to age, race, height or weight. No concern was given to a person being on the dance floor without a partner because everyone was their partner.
The finished concoction was a perfect blending of not only two families but of multiple families. Each had come prepared to add their spice to this celebration of two wonderful souls who had vowed to blend into one unit; A Beautifully Blended Body of Oneness!
I joyously celebrate this day which is the anniversary date that my granddaughter, Deja Tyson, made her physical entrance into this world. She embodies the wisdom of the Ancestors and has proudly demonstrated this. She has been a teacher to most that have had the opportunity of meeting her. She simply uses her gifts and goes about her business doing what she does.
The summer she turned two, I took her and my grandson on a road trip across the U.S. We spent two months traveling, stopping in several states to visit with family. People were amazed when they discovered she was not two yet because she was speaking in complete, logical sentences. She was paying attention whenever someone would ask how old she was. My response was she will be two on August 2nd. So after awhile when the question was asked she would answer the person and they would just smile. Out of the mouth of this little person came the answer, “I will be two on August 2nd”.
Deja is intuitive, artistic and creative. She demands the best from herself at all times. Her parents feel she puts too much pressure on herself by doing this and to date she continues with expecting the best from all her actions, especially in school.
At age six she joined me in hosting a group of twelve dynamic sisters whom I had gathered to discuss our collective efforts in creating a better society. She helped prepare the treats and was given the assignment of greeting each lady as they arrived. When the meeting started she was actively involved and included as introductions were made. Little did I know that as the meeting progressed she was sitting there taking notes from the discussion! Her minutes were complete and accurate! Be mindful of what you are teaching the babies as they emulate what you are doing.
Celebrate the life of those little ones today, perhaps your own children or grandchildren. Celebrate their unique gifts to the world. Help to enhance their creativity. Help them by showing them a better way. Do not allow foolishness to be their only experience.
While my mother and I were having a discussion, she asked me a question that I am still pondering. She asked what I thought could have happened to the many abandoned babies fathered by our military men from previous wars like WWI and II, Korean, or Vietnam. She said so many were probably outcast by their communities as being half breeds or whatever term one would use to describe a person not of full blood of any particular race. She knew some of the military men that were responsible for new life overseas that had to leave them behind when they returned to the United States. My mother said that they would be grown now and with children or grandchildren of their own. She just wondered how they felt as they grew up without their American fathers. Could this be the cause of so much global social unrest? Is the current state of affairs the result of what American military men did while away fighting a war to protect their country?
So often we fail to look at our contributions to disharmony. But what about these babies who are now grown men and women. What did they experience as children of absent fathers? Fathers, some of whom may not have even known they left a pregnant woman behind. My mother said she heard of special places for these children where they were outcast from their original families. They were abandoned twice, once by their father and next by their family of origin. To think on the reality of this and the possibility of it, is worth time to ponder.
The children may have grown up thinking where is the justice in this situation that I had no control over nor was involved in. These same children may have grown up filled with hate and anger, or with feelings of despair, non-acceptance and isolation. How did we, as Americans, deal with this in the past? Did we attempt to resolve this issue? Did we turn a blind eye to this situation? Do we dare recognize its possible existence now?
Just something to ponder!
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!
An onion has layers on it that must be peeled away before you can use it. We sometimes are like onions, we need to peel off layers before we get to the authentic person. We have Layers of disappointments, hurts, pains and unmet expectations; Layers of feeling unloved and unlovable; Layers of false feelings of unworthiness; Layers of sadness and confusion; and just lots of layers and layers of junk and stuff.
Today I begin peeling off and throwing away the layers I have allowed to build around me and cover the authentic me. The authentic me is Whole, Complete, Love, Capable, Worthy, Joyous, Wonderful! The authentic me seeks full expression as a Child of the Most High Energy, choosing to vibrate at an awesome level of Consciousness. I celebrate my life in totality!
The onion can cause tears to form in your eyes as you peel away the layers. These tears can be those of sorrow or joy. I choose to let them be ones of joy. Sorrow is no longer a part of my consciousness. Today I accept the many things that have come to teach me has indeed benefited me in a very powerful way. The situations have appeared to make me the person I am this day, a person fully capable of expressing the best me. I have learned through all the experiences. I give Thanks for their appearance in my life. During the experience I may have been too consumed with the process to completely understand the lesson. Yet today I look back with joy and wisdom, fully understanding their purpose for showing up, just for me to learn a lesson!
As I get to the nectar of the awesome flavor of the onion it adds fullness to my life. It adds a special blend to the recipe of my life. I am thankful for the savoring process, of allowing it to fully integrate into the completeness of the magnificent person this recipe has produced….ME!
I value the lesson of peeling an onion! I apply it to my life and weep tears of joy and gratitude. I gladly peel away and discord for good, the layers of stuff that has prevented me from being my authentic self.
