THE ONION

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.

THE JOY OF THE LORD

 

June 4th

The JOY of the Lord is your Strength!

The more you utilize JOY the more active it becomes in you. As JOY becomes second nature in all of your activities, the more it will desire to demonstrate itself for you. All of your actions and interactions can be motivated by JOY when you make that choice. Use JOY as the tool it is, a soothing and calming presence. JOY is awesome to experience. It is alive when you call upon it and use it.

The more you exercise JOY, the stronger it will be for you. Like working out with your physical body, the more you exercise certain muscles the stronger they become. Flex the activity of JOY in all that you do and watch it get stronger and stronger. Soon there will not be a need for you to think about it; it will be there constantly without any effort from you. You have built JOY to last and it will carry you through all conditions.

You possess the power of a giant through JOY! God has blessed you with JOY! Everything that comes from The Source is lasting, pure and true. This powerful thing called JOY is your strength. Accept it into your being, into your heart, into the core of your Spirit. Accept it as the gift it is, a free gift from GOD!

Release everything that does not bring you JOY! Let it go now. Expect only JOY and receive only JOY! Be empowered by The Infinite Intelligence of JOY! Be strengthened, renewed, encouraged and fortified by JOY!

The JOY of the Lord IS YOUR STRENGTH!!!

 

Affirm: The JOY of the Lord is my strength. I can do all things through the

Power of JOY.

WHAT IS FAMILY?

May 31st

 

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.

 

FOLLOW UP

 

This month is dedicated to abundance.

 

Are you doing and giving your best to following up? Has an opportunity been given to you and all you need to do is follow up? Do not allow procrastination to rob you of achieving your goals. The situation or person is waiting on you to show up so that you can be blessed. Receive your blessing today, take action and be rewarded.

 

You took the first step and more is required of you. Remember to follow through until you reap the benefits of your goal manifested into reality. You are almost there so please do not stop now. Just one more step, one more action on your part. It is right in front of you aching to be summoned.

 

I choose this day to always follow up in a timely manner. I am grateful for the many blessings coming my way. I show my appreciation by acknowledging the gift. I remain conscious of my choices and stay on the course that leads me to the place I desire to be. I can. I will. My attitude is of success and achievement.

 

I have prepared myself for a time such as this. I have completed the basics and ready to move forward in my progression. I give thanks daily during my still time, alone with God. As I meditate on the wonders of life I know and accept my dreams are part of the overall picture of existence. It is my work to do and no one can do it but me.

 

I create abundance in my life by consistently following up and following through. I trust the process of life and creation and know everything unfolds in its divine time and order. I do my part the best I know how by allowing integrity to be my constant guide.

 

I follow up and follow through because this is the natural way of my being. I receive Abundant Blessings Overflowing in and through my life.

SPIRITUAL EXAMINATION

 

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.

ONENESS

 

Oneness is single. Oneness is unity. Oneness is the only reality!

 

We live in a world made of intricate individuals woven into a wondrous universe. The meaning of universe means one. Different cultures, yet we are all the same. We each are created from one single source, God. Regardless to what name we give to the prophet that we choose to follow and use as a Way shower, the fact remains there is only one God. Interestingly enough religion has created separation in the family of God.

 

When we focus our attention on the unity of humankind, we can embrace each other in complete Love. The facial features or color of the skin serves only to remind us of the awesome God that created this multi-faceted humanity. It must be a Power greater than mankind to conceive this idea. For it seems if it were left to a single entity that all would be required to be a duplicate of it. Yet in the Unlimited Expression of God, we have no two people who look alike. That is truly amazing, even identical twins are different.

 

I declare today as a day of celebrating the differences in humanity. Go out of your way to notice and honor someone of a different ethnic background. Learn as much as you can about them and their culture. Expand your field of acceptance, allow others into the fold. Truly honor the gift they bring to you. You might just find a true friend hidden in the identity of that stranger.

 

Today let us practice true acceptance. Accept people just as they are, without your limited views attached to them. Expand in your knowledge. Expand in your love, your unconditional love.

 

My world of friends and extended family resembles the United Nations and there is still room for others to join. I welcome with wide open arms all of God’s children into my life. I am still learning and growing about the unity and sanctity of mankind. As I grow I realize less and less of any differences and embrace the richness each person brings to my life.

 

Today I celebrate Oneness and Unity.
