SPIRITUAL EXAMINATION

 

April 13th

Like going to the doctor for a yearly physical check-up, today I give myself a Spiritual Examination.

I take time to be still and listen for the voice of God. I meditate on Love and Peace. It is this time of devotion that I am reconnected to The Source of all life. This is time spent in the waiting room of the doctor’s office. I check in and am still.

As my temperature is taken I know this is a reflection of my attitude towards life. Am I running a fever or right on the mark? My attitude is positive. My attitude is loving. My attitude is peaceful. My temperature reflects my feelings of an attitude of gratitude. I am thankful for my life.

Next I weigh in on the scales. My weight reflects the burdens, or the lack thereof, I choose to carry. I am filled with joy that I have not picked up any additional weight. I have learned how to eat properly from the goodness of life and do not allow burdens to weigh me down.

My blood pressure is symbolic of my expression to the Universe. It is in a perfect range. I go with the flow of life by demonstrating unconditional love for each and every person and situation that appears on my path. The same blood that freely flows through me is the same blood that flows through others, it is the awesome free gift of The Creator.

As the Doctor checks my reflexes, I see they are perfect. The Doctor looks into my ears and there is no blockage. I hear with understanding and wisdom. I seek first to understand, I do not force my opinion on others. I listen carefully to what is being shared with me. My ears are clear.

My heart beat is strong and powerful! Thanks God for this wonderful instrument that knows how and when to circulate the force of life in my body. My heart is my center and it is filled with complete acceptance and unconditional love.

 

My Spiritual Examination is complete. The Master Doctor said “You have done a Great job in keeping your body fit and healthy.” I smile and think to myself how proud I am of myself for being my best at all times. My exam shows my efforts of the daily work I do.

F.O.C.U.S.

 March 4th

F – Fantastic

O – Outcomes

C – Creating

U – Unlimited

S – Supply

Where is your F.O.C.U.S. anchored today? Are you holding to the vastness of THE SUPPLY? Do you know there is more than enough to go around, for each to receive a bountiful portion?

There is no scarcity in God’s Universe! There is only Unlimited Supply (US)!

You cannot deplete the storehouse. You can never withdraw more than your share. And your share is unlimited! You are entitled to receive and completely enjoy the fruits of plenty! It is yours by birthright. You are a child of The Most High.

Today I choose to accept the reality of ABUNDANCE! The lavish, generous, overflowing, exceedingly abundant, abounding and inexhaustible Supply is mine when I declare it so. I use my attention to concentrate on All Good, All God. I know that where my attention goes my energy flows. I create that which I think about.

Today I am victorious in maintaining an attitude of Abundance and Prosperity. I allow nothing to disrupt my flow. I stay centered in positivity. I share, knowing there is always plenty available to me.

Today I accept the overflowing of abundance into my life. I graciously receive prosperity in every detail of my affairs. I know, trust and believe I Am a child of The Creator.  I Am a rich heir of the Kingdom! I give Thanks. I give Thanks. I give Thanks!

LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF

 

December 13th

I use the term, ‘Learn to Love Yourself’ because many of us often leave that to someone else to do for us. Despite what you have thought in the past, you must LOVE yourself before anyone else can truly love you.

To love yourself is to be completely honest with your thoughts and actions towards you. And you do not have to share your inner most thoughts with anyone unless you choose to do so. So what are you really thinking these days? Do you believe you are worthy of the goals and dreams you have for yourself? Are you beautiful by your own standards? Do you experience JOY on a deep soul satisfying level?

You can learn to be ‘in love’ with you, at all times and through all circumstances. You learn this by simply doing it, without excuse or resistance. Just Love who you have become, all the wonderful lessons you have learned and all the growth you have experienced. Isn’t it grand to count it all a blessing? It is your life, your physical existence. It is your heart and your soul that we are celebrating with absolute Joy! Love that person at the deepest levels and watch how much better your life becomes. You are doing it for yourself AND that is reason enough.

Practice giving the best to you this day. They say practice makes perfect. So continue to practice loving your self until you become a master at it. Truly love without any conditions. To love yourself is the greatest gift you can give to you today.

I Love Me today! I truly Love Me today! I Am worthy of LOVE! And I accept Love into my life, beginning with self love. I give myself permission to Love freely, without restraints or limitations. I simply choose to LOVE!

I Am my best friend. I tell myself the truth at all times. I am patient and kind with me. I choose words of support and encouragement with myself. I know I can and I will; it is my choice.

This very day, I WILL LOVE MYSELF FULLY AND COMPLETELY!

REMEMBER THE SABBATH

Scripture tells us to remember the Sabbath and to keep it Holy. The Sabbath is a different day depending upon which doctrine you ascribe to. For the unity of those reading this message, the Sabbath is any day you desire for it to be. For with the observance of the Sabbath we are told to take a day of rest and honor The Creator with worship.

I worship The Creator as often as I can. I have church in my house as regularly as I can. The Church is in your heart and it is not in a building. Have your Sabbath seven days a week if you choose. By giving Thanks to The Creator you are observing the Sabbath. The rest you take does not have to be a full day, it can be a partial day or an allotted time daily.

Remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy. Always dedicate time to be alone with the God of your choice. God is God and will not be effected by whatever name you choose to describe The Source of your Strength. Keep the communication Holy means to not allow any distractions. Go into your closet of prayer and be in direct, undisturbed communication with The Most High. Prayer is available to you at all times. No one needs to know you are praying. You can say a silent prayer without disruption to anything going on around you.

There has been plenty of times when I had to call on My Source for help and guidance. As a car is speeding up behind me with my grandchildren in the car, I can call on God for Divine Protection! As I am helping someone through a situation or the death of a loved one, I call upon God in prayer.

Keep the Sabbath Holy, keep your thoughts positive, pure and focused on Thanksgiving. Give Thanks for your life. Give Thanks for every little thing in your life. Be in an attitude of gratitude constantly. That is a sure fire way to:

REMEMBER THE SABBATH AND KEEP IT HOLY!

BLESSED

I am radiantly blessed and prospered this day. I glow with the Blessings of God.

I remember my story of growing up. I may have called some of the things that happened along the way as unjust or undeserving. Yet today I call it all a Blessing.

I choose to honor all of everything that is a part of my story. My story is rich and vibrant with wonderful people and happenings. My story is worthy of repeating and telling others. I am pleased with my story because it shows how wonderful and powerful I am. I have overcome many challenges. I have walked around many obstacles and still I stand. I stand proud and courageous, knowing I am a Blessed Child of Infinite Source. I tell others of the Mercy that has sustained me. I share my history of Grace and Love.

I know I am blessed. My life is a testimony of survivorship. I find comfort in the simpler things of life. I find Peace within myself. I have discovered the true storehouse of Unconditional Love. Yes I Am Blessed by God’s Grace and Mercy. Yes I am a rich and prosperous Child of The Most High.

My higher consciousness is a Blessing. I lean on the God of my Understanding for all revelations and guidance. My Blessings continue to flow and flood my life with goodness. I experience the wonders with awe and amazement. How Blessed I truly am is a thought that keeps repeating in my mind. If I could only find the adequate words to express my gratitude to this Awesome Presence I serve. God is truly My Source.

Thanks God for Blessings. Thanks God for more Blessings. Thanks God for the increase of Blessings. Thanks God. I Give Thanks, God!

ACCENTUATE THE POSITIVE

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?

FEEL YOUR LIFE

God has granted humans with the awesome power to experience various emotions. None of them are bad. None of them are good. They are simply emotions that will certainly pass.

When you truly ‘feel’ the emotions you are in a place to ‘heal’ the emotion. If you have chosen to think it is bad or undesirable, consider your source of reference. God has given this emotion to you to fully experience. Some emotions come clothed as opportunities to learn a bigger lesson in life. Some come to make us feel better about things. Either way do not become attached to the emotion. ‘Feel’ it completely. Allow it to penetrate every cell in your being. Then release it.

As we allow ourselves to be honest with exactly what we are experiencing, it opens the doors of healing. If we have decided that the feeling is somehow bad, we must rethink it. Why would we have this emotion in the first place? Discomfort comes to remind us. Joy comes to remind, also.

This exercise has helped countless individuals who have come to me for help. I tell them what they are ‘feeling’ is neither right nor wrong, it just is. As they fully experience whatever they are going through, they realize the fulfillment is in the going through of the emotion. Soon they witness the beauty in their experience and rejoice.

So whatever it is for you today, ‘feel’ your way through it. Fully and completely get involved in the emotion. Temper tantrums are permissible. ‘Feeling’ down is okay, go all the way as low as you can go. Suddenly it loses its magic grip on you. You have acknowledged it and now it can pass.
