Victory

To my fellow Christians:
Yesterday I had a good talk with myself and as I was finishing up processing, I had some profound thoughts that I wanted to share. I have been feeling so much pressure to perform and do the things I know the Lord has asked me to do, yet I have not done them yet. Today I realized that it isn’t about me at all, its all about it being His work and He is already victorious and will continue to be victorious, so there is no need to worry or fear. If I don’t step up to the plate, someone else will because His purposes will be fulfilled, because He is in charge and it’s not about determining our worth, or us standing in the way of the work, it has nothing to do with us. We just get to decide whether we want to be a worker or not, and decide what kind of a life we want to create. The fact that we live and love Him is testimony enough, making the choice to come to earth we solidified our standing with Him and so when we invite Him in we have access to all that He offers. This life is purely about learning and creating: learning how to become creators. We need to stop being scared of opposition and stop thinking that Satan has power over us that we don’t have control over. We are all players on a stage, the opposition is simply a catalyst for growth….period. And the adversary only has as much power over us and we give him. Those who have accepted Christ as their Savior and strive each day to remember him and emulate him…..are already victorious, because He was victorious on the cross. This life is not about us, its about something so much bigger…LOVE LEARNING and JOY!

If you feel like your life has just been one drama after another, one challenge after another, one uphill battle after another, just know you are right where you need to be and you have no need to think that you are worthless, that your life is meaningless, that you have accomplished nothing in this battle of life! If you are still breathing, standing and have an inkling of hope and faith….You are victorious! Even if you don’t feel like this today, just know, it’s coming! You are God’s child and he made you to be victorious! Lean on Jesus’s victory! Love you guys! Have a victorious day thru Christ the Lord!

Attraction

I am amazed at how simple it is to identify what we are attracting in our lives and how. Again, I am reminded that what we focus on fills us up. In the scriptures it talks about our eye being single to the Glory of God, Light and Truth, and when we cultivate more light we become light. I believe we focus on problems and what is wrong in our lives way to much, we get ensnared by thinking that we have to always figure out our problems. I am seeing in my own life and believe that this is a trap and design of the Devil. I believe our problems are there to bring us to God, to draw us near to him in asking for solutions and being willing to lay the burdens at His feet, as He has commanded. It does not do us any good to continually let problems roll around in our minds, the more we focus on the negative, the greater the possibility for us to attract that into our lives. IT is better for us to focus on what is right in our lives, our blessings and what we truly have been given. To choose to see the glass half full instead of empty. There are so many things that can be turned around, so many problems that can become miniscule if we will but shift our focus to what we have and what is good instead of what we don’t have and by simply asking the question, “what can I learn from this?”, betting an answer, adjusting and moving on.

Our thoughts are like magnets, when we focus on the negative it creates more and we attract those things. When we focus on the positive and what is right and our blessings, we attract more of that and we become more attractive to others in the same regards. We truly have power to attract what we need and want and to partner with God to create the life we desire. It starts with our thoughts and what we are choosing to focus on. We do not have to give every thought that comes into our minds, attention. Negative thoughts come with power and so many of them feel familiar because we have been walking around hanging onto them as if they are our friends. It’s time to let go of the negative thoughts, let them pass through. Better yet pluck them out and throw them away. Do not feed negativity, do not let it take root and grow. Let us grow the good in our heads, let us choose the positive and let that grow. We have control over what we focus on and what we do with the thoughts in our heads. Just remember that what is focused on literally fills us up and that is what we end up attracting and being attracted and attractive to.

As I go about my day today, I am choosing 3 specific positive declarations that I will repeat and ponder upon, over and over again. I’m going to train my brain to focus on the good, and to continually attract that energy into my life and lay those things that weigh heavy, at the Lord’s feet like He commands. I will also call upon Him to help me keep my thoughts on Him and the blessings that He has so freely given. This is how I will stay free and clear and attractive today. Who wants to join me?

Today is my Birthday

Today is my birthday and so I feel inspired to write what is truly on my heart. I feel the freedom to express whatever I would like as a gift to myself. An inner reflection on paper….those who know me well, know this is my favorite past time. Although I have been silent for some time, my heart is always yearning to write, to express the deep love I have for life, for the many people in my life and most of all for the that one true friend, who is always there for me and has brought me through all things….Jesus.

I’m so grateful to say that my life has not been easy, I have been given many gifts, wrapped in the label of “challenges”. For my challenges, I am grateful, as they have been my opportunities to grow and to know the power of Christ’s love in my life. I love to grow and I see the gift in growing and so I am grateful for my challenges. I am grateful to know that I have a personal friend and Savior, who loves me beyond comprehension and who takes the time to express that love clearly, especially in the moments of my deepest self loathing. Only He knows what to say to me when I find myself lost in the darkness of shame, guilt, grief and disappointment. It is because of His constant care that I am filled with love and have been able to come through so much trauma in my life. I have received complete healing because of Him.

I am grateful for my children, the children, who’s little spirits I saw when going through one of my most darkest times as a teen. My children who whispered to me that they were mine, that I was on the right path and to keep going. And now, who grace my home with their presence and continually challenge me to stay on board with love and patience and kindness.

I am grateful for a husband, who is always challenging me to stay in a space of love and calm. Who goes above and beyond to show loyalty and love in the most adverse circumstances. Who’s presence continually challenges me to love and not judge, accept and not criticize. Thank you.

My life is a gift and I know this because there are so many times that I wanted to take it and have been saved by angels of heaven and earth. So I am grateful for my life, I have been given the opportunity to be able to help people heal in ways that I couldn’t even imagine. To partner with heaven to understand the hearts and souls of many and to assist them in uncovering truth in their own lives and healing from the past. I am grateful that I get to continue this work on an even bigger scale and to see my life dream of creating a healing center coming to fruition.

I am grateful for opposition, for the Advesary, who does His job which allows God’s mighty power to be shown in even greater capacity.

I am grateful to be a woman and have the versatility of being soft and kind, yet strong and powerful. I love my body and this has not always been the case, given I was sexually abused and raped at young ages and rejected my body and self for so many years. I love who I am, I am grateful for the beautiful body God gave me to be able to feel and experience this life to the fullest. To be able to touch and nurture others with love and healing and receive that in return. I love that I am in tune with my body now and that I can hear it when it speaks to me and that I want to hear what it has to say and have a desire to take care of it as the precious gift it is.

I am grateful for my restored health. For a simple solution that God brought into my life that changed my course very quickly and has allowed me to help others in ways that I could not imagine.

I am blessed to know so many amazing people who have blessed my life in countless ways. It is the people in my life that make it so beautiful. I love getting to meet new people, getting to connect on different levels. It is in the connecting with others, even to the soul, that brings me the greatest joy and fulfillment. Thank you to many for allowing me to be a part of your lives, for opening up your soul to me and for allowing me to be an instrument in ministering to you in the ways that you need.

I am grateful for Angels. Thank you my Angels for being by my side always, lifting and guiding, inspiring and speaking.

I am thankful for this day, for the opportunity to reflect on my life, to reconnect with friends and loved ones and to have another year to love, learn and serve. To those who are reading this, thank you for being a witness to those blessings.

The Beginning – 21 Steps to Greatness

Have you ever wanted to write a book and you know you need to share your thoughts and story? Well, that’s been me for the past 7 months. Today, I am sharing with you a few tidbits from my new e-book coming out soon….21 Steps to Greatness. This came as inspiration as I was praying. Now we know that books are the fruits of the labor of experiences in our lives and this has been a fun one to write. I pray it will uplift, enlighten and edify those who feel compelled to pick it up! Here are 2 steps for today….

Step 1 – Make a decision – The energy and power of greatness cannot be experienced or manifested unless we make a decision within ourselves to be great, no matter what the cost. When we have decided whole heartedly within ourselves to live a full life, to be excellent and to surround ourselves with greatness then a shift happens, the universe and God, go out of their way to support, sustain and help us accomplish our goal of actually experiencing our powerful selves….creating a life of experience of Self Actualization. This means we actually get to experience ourselves as love, as strength, as kindness, as driven, as determined and we are putting these into action, instead of being acted upon.

Step 2 – Gratitude- Gratitude is one of the strongest energies, that keeps us grounded, open, centered and happy. Choosing to be grateful and cultivating the spirit of gratitude in any and all circumstances puts us in a place to connect with the Divine. It empowers us to switch our brains and focus to all that is good, instead of all that is not so good. The more gratitude we cultivate in our lives, the more joy and peace we create within ourselves

Go out and be GREAT today! I am!

Going with the Flow

I’m sure we have all heard it and said it before…”Just go with the flow.” This is actually an energetic term from which I would like to expand on.  In a world where we are encountering constant streams of energy, the question becomes….”Which energy do we connect and go with and how do we flow?”

Energy is all around us, everything is energy/matter, the stuff we can feel constantly, but can’t see. Everyone has their own energy, every thought, word and emotion is energy and creates a vibration, just like radio waves. So when we say….go with the flow, what we are really saying is….go with what flows from you naturally, go with the light energy that is guiding you that day, go with what naturally presents itself and brings peace. So much in this world we are acting from a place in our brains that continually plays negative thoughts, or we act from a belief of what we “should do” or trying to create something we were told is the “right way”. This my friends, is death to the spirit in all forms. True authenticity, peace and happiness comes when we connect to the true flow or spirit within us and then let that guide us in our daily lives. True creation of life and peace comes when we begin to act from this place inside and begin to create our thoughts from this place of light, joy, love and goodness and in this begin to partner with God in creating our lives instead of following a programmed response and tape from our heads.

Moving into a space of  living consciously or living in flow is what brings peace and joy. What does it mean to be conscious?  It means to be fully aware, to be make choices consciously, from our heart space where free energy lives. It means to choose our life and letting our soul, along with God be our guide. Be aware at the choices we are making, choosing our lives in the moment, instead of reacting. When we choose to live in flow, we are choosing to let light and truth guide our lives. We are choosing to come from a place of real freedom. When we are living from our heart center, we are free.

So, the next question is….how does one connect the heart and the head so they work together and one is living consciously and in flow? First, you need to give yourself permission to put off all the “have to’s” and “musts” in your life and start giving yourself permission to do the want to’s  and to turn some of the have to’s into wants. In this you move yourself into a space of needing to listen to your heart and striving to connect with it. Meditation is a good first step into starting to connect with your heart.  Each morning put time aside to just be still and connect with your heart space and meditate. When you pray from this space you will feel your connection with the Divine and be working with the same heart and mind, this is how you begin to start conscious living.  By staying connected to your heart space, you stay connected with the Divine.  As you make it a priority throughout the day to keep this connection, you will begin to live more in flow and freedom. Really the saying “practice makes perfect” can be applied here.  The more we practice connecting each day and put our energy in this, the easier it becomes!  I pray for your success in connecting and learning to live in flow. God Bless!

 

 

The Game Changer

napoleon-hill-writer-your-big-opportunity-may-be-right-where-you-are
There really are times when we have one opportunity to choose something that is a game changer. I had that opportunity over a year and a half ago. Choosing to say “yes” when a friend offered something that had the capability of helping my body get well, was one of those game changing decisions. Many of you already know my amazing experience of overcoming 15 years of severe depression and anxiety by just starting to take an all natural, whole-food nutritional supplement called Zeal Wellness. What you don’t know is what it has done for my family and for my marriage. I know it seems a little overboard to say that one product has been the catalyst for miracles in so many needed area’s, but the fact of the matter is, it has! It’s because of the nature of what is being offered….. answers to personal health problems.

Another game changer came when I shared this with my 9 year old daughter, Zeal Wellness helped with her inability to focus. As a 9 year old, she went from not being able to even sit for 10 minutes to being able to sit and focus well for a half hour to 45 minutes. She went from struggling with her reading and thinking she was stupid, to excelling and having confidence to move forward in doing hard things. Game changer!
The 3rd game changer came for my husband. Forrest has struggled with being overweight throughout our marriage, this has been a concern for me because of the history of heart problems and diabetes. It has been an issue of conflict between us. Since starting in December of last year He has lost 56 pounds and is continuing to take good care of himself. Complete Game Changer for him and our marriage!
I Understand, that these are our experiences with Zeal Wellness. Every body is different.

The most profound blessing that has come from my decision over a year ago is being a part of a group of people that focus on serving the individual and changing lives. I have been so humbled and blessed to see the blessings of friends and family getting well in their health, getting their drive and hope back for life. Another Game Changer for me! And here is the biggest one now! Forrest and I are just coming back together after a 9 month separation, this opportunity to work together in putting our whole hearts in serving others, is a saving grace for us. It is empowering us to move from a selfish relationship to a selfless one. This, my friends, is the biggest blessing yet. When we meet our goal this month it will forever change our lives as it will put our feet on a path, spiritually ,mentally, physically and emotionally different then our previous years of marriage. We not only welcome the change, but are running to it with all we have, we know it truly is our opportunity to create something new and good within us, within our relationship and with our family. Thank God for opportunities!

SO, why am I sharing all this? That’s where you come in…I want to reach out to you who need a game changer right now. Maybe in your health, maybe in your life, maybe in your relationships. My heart is so full of the desire to see you heal and thrive, like we have been given the opportunity to do, that I’m willing to use a blog post to invite! Crazy! Honestly, if you have been praying for a change and there is something that resonates with what I have shared with you….please reach out to me. Is it time for you to change the game in your life? Could this be the catalyst for you also? Let’s find out!

Healing Hearts And Marriages

Many of you that know me, know that I have been in a separated relationship with my husband for 9 months, God used that time to teach and refine me. Truly when we turn our lives over to the Lord, we do not always know the coarse or see the way, but we can be of good comfort knowing that He has a plan and He will lead and guide, bless and direct if we let Him. I’ve learned this journey called life is about choices, it’s about what we cultivate in our hearts and minds that assist in creating the life we live. I have witnessed God’s mighty power and grace in our lives and surely God is truly a God of Miracles. He does the work of light and love, He has the power to touch hearts and heal in ways that no human being can. Our family has been touched and blessed by the Grace of God and we truly have received miracles and for this I am forever grateful.

Forrest and I had an opportunity to go to Nashville with our company, to learn the business, to connect with friends and to be inspired. I had a prayer in my heart going on this trip, that parts of my heart would be healed and softened towards Forrest as we have just begun to come together again and to heal and put back the pieces of our shattered hearts and relationship. Forrest made it easy to strive for this as he focused the entire trip on what he could do for me and for our team. His desire to serve and his willingness to sacrifice his own needs began to soften my heart and open my eyes to the man that he is striving to become. I will not lie, I felt much conflict and fear realizing that I needed to open my heart more to him and be vulnerable. I fought it and I had to surrender to feelings of remorse of leaving the single life behind as I was seeing that as freedom. Mostly, I had to face the deep fear that I had, the fear of being vulnerable and the possibility of being hurt again or falling into the same patterns. God had spoken over and over again, that some of that was in my control. It is how I chose to see the relationship, it was how I chose to act. It wasn’t until I took a stand within myself, that I made a clear decision to try again, to give it all I had to heal and do things differently that clarity came.

Sunday morning we attended the services that the company provided as they are a Christian-based company and it had been our experience in the past that so much good was done there and we had felt the Spirit of the Lord so strongly and been taught. We had come to love their Sunday services and the experience of feeling the energy of the love of Christ permeate a huge room and fill us up. It was during this service that the Lord spoke right to my heart. He said ” Your marriage is healed, see it has healed.” Move forward with this in your heart and mind. This thought broke through the darkness and confusion and was an answer of great hope and healing for me. I understood what the Lord was implying and teaching me…”see the thing you wish to be, create by your belief and your attitude and your vision what you want it to be. Act as if it already is.” I understand now that when we have a dream or a vision and hold fast to that, keep that in our minds eye and act in faith as if that has already become a reality, we actually call it into reality with greater speed and power.

We are living in a time when everything that we need is literally at our finger tips. The Lord is waiting to bless us with all that we need if we will but ask in faith and then act as if it has already been given. This is putting faith in action and using our agency to stand in our power to choose our lives. Our minds are very powerful and thoughts create. If you are in a place in your life that you do not like, if you are in a situation that you want to change. Ask the Lord to help you change your vision, switch your thoughts to what you do want and align your actions as though it has already happened. This brings magic to mayhem. It immediately puts you in a place of power in your life. The Lord wants us to stand in our power and to be powerful like He created us to be. We literally have the ability to create our lives by the thoughts we focus on and the intention we take our action in. I am grateful to know that I am on the path of healing and look forward to the many days of happiness ahead.
