Love- A Call to Action

As I sit and ponder and meditate this morning, thoughts and impressions flow into my mind. My prayers are not for me but for my brothers and sisters upon this earth at this time. Flashes of the women and children being torn away from each other, Fathers being beaten down! The feelings run deep in me as I pray for their deliverance from such evil. I pray that angels surround them and comfort them as I have come to understand that the distance between heaven and earth is really next to none, for the things of the spirit, which we cannot see, truly are all around us. So…how do we call upon the powers of heaven and work in harmony with the unseen angels all around us that walk this earth for the soul purpose of guiding, directing, protecting and comforting the human family? First, we must realize that truly we are children of the most High God, Sons and Daughters of the Powerful Creator and Source of Love and Light. We must come to understand that because of the gift of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we have been bought with a price and claimed by Deity and in this it is our right to ask for all that we stand in need of for our family, our nation, this world and ourselves, especially as we cultivate the pure desire to love and serve each other. Because of Christ we can become free in our hearts and minds from the blood and sins of this generation and step into a place of power and freedom, unlike this world alone can offer. Freedom is not something that happens on the outside but on the inside 1st. Our Freedom was bought with the price of Christ’s blood which was shed for all and was brought upon him through his willingness to truly feel, experience and carry it all. When He carried the cross, it was not just the physical burden that He carried but more so the sins and sorrows of the world…the cry of every man, woman and child, the deep pain and hatred of the perpetrator, murderer and sinner, the depressed and self loathing mother, the overburdened and afraid father. He bore it all, magnified a hundredfold because of the purity of His soul, to carry such darkness literally was death. He did this purely out of love and His desire to be our Advocate, to be able to walk by our side in this life, to be our friend and our Savior, to embody the love that we need to move all sin, barriers and boundaries.
So, what is the answer to the problems of the world…LOVE. Love for ourselves and love for one another. It seems so simple, too simple…peace, love, happiness. You look at any situation, on a big scale or a small…the problem is a lack of pure love. Love for oneself, for God and for fellow men. Pure love heals all wounds, it empowers us to Forgive and to move forward in greater peace. It places us in a space to be creators of our lives instead of reactors, it gives us courage to stand and fight for our rights when needed. You want to help the world, tap into Love and then ask what you can do and do it! Love IS THE ANSWER.
So this is my call, my call to action! Do something today and every day for the next 30 days to show LOVE. It can be something simple and small or something huge and gigantic, either way you are changing the planet, because when you choose love and you do something to spread that, it creates ripples throughout the earth. It creates a chain reaction, so in this you can literally change the world. So be a creator today and change the world, one action of Love at a time.

The Gift of Life

After watching my children open their presents and sitting for a moment to ponder, my heart was touched deeply with the love for mankind. I realize what a privilege and a gift it is to be a part of others lives and to have others be a part of mine, no matter what role they play. I feel that sometimes we do not really realize the significance of each person we have the privilege of meeting and engaging with, negative or positive. Each person has godliness in them, a spark of the divine and so in this we are so blessed to have contact with one another, to have the ability to love and serve God by connecting with each other. I believe we get lost in the negative too much, we get lost in the fear of being judged and in the trap of judging, we hold on to past grudges and we don’t allow ourselves and others around us to change. May I propose that this is the time to let go, let the past be in the past and let whatever has happened to you in your life become a gift to propel you forward with grace and beauty and hope into the future.

In my work, I assist so many to release wounds from the past, deep ones, that have kept them stuck in a cycle of fear, hate, self loathing, abuse, addiction and disease. We talk about how these experiences can truly become gifts because they are what give us the opportunity to learn to overcome, to choose to love, to forgive, to change something dark into Light. The truth is that every part of our lives, every experience is truly a gift, if we will let it be, because of the Atonement of Christ. The gift being that because of the Atonement, the challenges truly are an opportunity to choose whether we want to rise up within ourselves and become strong, loving, forgiving, courageous beings or whether we want to be beaten down victims full of bitterness and self loathing. It is in the experience, the challenge, that the choice is presented, the opportunity is given, the growth comes. The power of the Atonement, pure love, sets us free to learn and to not carry the weight of the experience for longer than is needed. If we could see our lives through God’s eyes, we would realize it is all just a journey to Him, it is all about growth and that it is a blessing if we will let it be….that what happens to us, simply does not change our worth in His eyes. That we are always precious to Him and He wants nothing more for us than to grow into the strong powerful beings that He designed us to be, He understands that for us to do this we must use our agency and so in this, there must be opposition. If we make a shift in our paradigm, the way we see life, the way we see people in our lives, the way we see our experiences…. if we shift to seeing them as gifts for healing, growing, learning and loving, then the way we feel inside will shift.

God made us to be free in our hearts and minds, to be happy and joyful. He provided His Son as a sacrifice so that as we make changes and as we come to Him to do this, we can and will be healed and will move forward in the light and truth of who we really are and what this life is really about. This life is truly a gift, every day is a gift, every experience, every person we have the privilege of coming in contact with. Each experience presents us with the opportunity to choose and to love and to overcome and to serve. Look for the light in each situation….look for the gift, it is there.

The Power of Love

I believe that most of us have witnessed the power of God’s love in our life, I know of no other way it is manifest more strongly than in the Atonement of His Son, Jesus Christ.  I have spent many weeks pondering on this great act of love and service on our behalf, and have spent days and nights on my knees asking for the power in the Atonement to help me daily overcome my weaknesses. I have been impressed with thoughts and idea’s that have changed the way I go about doing things.

This what I have come to understand so far:

When Christ’s Atonement was made it opened up a portal, a way for us to access the powers of heaven to assist us on our earthly life journey.  Because Christ, willingly turned his life over to be crucified, out of love for us, when we align ourselves with him, by obedience to his commandments, we have access to that same power that enabled him to endure and overcome…God’s infinite and eternal love.  The power in the atonement is pure love. We become at one with light, truth, spirit and power when we access Christ’s love to cleanse us and guide us and set us free. The act of the atonement allows us access to that love and power and God’s knowledge, through the Savior. We literally get to be yoked, or have companionship with Christ because of the atonement and we become able to have heaven’s divine help.  The Atonement is love in it’s purest form; the power of the atonement is God’s power, which is Love.

LOVE is Power.  LOVE is SPIRIT.  Love Heals all.

How do you access and use the power of the Atonement in your life?

Personal Power

The other day I found myself driving down the highway, listening to Alanis Morsette and crying!  As I listened, the words struck me to the very core:

That I would be good even if I did nothing,
That I would be good even if i got the thumbs down,
that I would be good if I got and stayed sick,
that I would be good even if i gained ten pounds….

that i would be fine even if I went bankrupt
that i would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
that I would be great if I was no longer queen
that i would be grand if I was not all knowing….

I painfully realized that somewhere along my life journey I picked up on the lie that who I am is  not good enough.  Not only did I let that lie sit in my mind, but I took it into my heart and believed it to be true.  I have been spending years playing that out and pushing myself beyond exhaustion to prove that I AM good enough.   I have wasted so much time and energy aligning myself with others expectations, judgements and limitations. I have been consumed with concern of how my actions look to other people and striving to please others so that I could have the reward of recognition and feeling good enough.  The sad thing is….there has been no change or reward, only the continued feelings of  worthlessness, hurt and shame.  I’ve gone the other way also and  have played it small so I wouldn’t make others uncomfortable or cause them to shun me!  No wonder I have felt crazy, depressed or both for so many years!

Why? Why have I done this?  I don’t know all the reasons….but this I do know….. I’m Done.  I’m taking back my own personal power, the power to choose who I want to be, and to respect who I am already. I’m choosing to love myself for who I am, and see myself thru God’s eyes. I ‘m choosing to not let others define who I am, my worth or my capabilities. I’m choosing to be more concerned with loving and accepting myself unconditionally and allowing God to work through me, not limiting myself or what He can do.  I no longer choose to be  limited by other people’s negative perceptions and opinions, and I no longer choose to believe the Lie that I am not good enough.

I believe that there is great power in realizing that a change just starts with a simple act of choosing.  I have been given the god given right and power to choose, we all have.  I believe that when I come to the God in Heaven and ask him to walk with me and to guide me and to show me who I am in his eyes and fill me with his unconditional love, He will.  I have come to understand that this is where my strength to do hard things and my ability to seperate myself from untrue beliefs and others false perceptions and judgements will come from, through Christ. When I choose God first, and I follow His voice and His counsel and I allow myself to see myself through His eyes, I am truly free.  Free to choose who I want to be, free from others definitions and opinions, free from shame, guilt and untruths. His love heals me and sets me free to be my best self.  I’m striving to reach higher, use my personal power to CHOOSE my actions and turning to God for strength to do these things.  I choose to believe that I AM GOOD ENOUGH! What are you choosing to believe today?

The Answer

I’ve been reflecting on the sudden passion and urge I feel to write and share and how this is such a change from my 9 years of living in a dark and depressing place of loneliness and seclusion.  I look back on my life, even at this moment, with tears in my eyes, and wonder how I have made it thru so many years of struggling with depression, anxiety, guilt, anger….hopelessness. Depression in all its negative forms attack the mind and  enslaves the soul. A disease in so many aspects, a disease in which I thought I would never find a cure for, nor any kind of consistent relief. I remember so many times wanting to die, or run away.  I can recall many times, planning an escape, figuring out in my mind how I could just disappear in the least dramatic way so that it wouldn’t hurt my kids and husband too much.   I remember feeling such loathing for myself, that I would literally crawl in a ball and cry out for mercy, hoping that I wouldn’t be consumed by the darkness, but then wondering if I was, that maybe my heart would just stop beating and I would be free. I remember one day after having my third baby, sitting on a street corner and literally not being able to move because of the sadness and despair and hopelessness I felt.  I ended up picking myself up off the curb and calling the suicide hotline asking for help. These are just a few scenes from the never-ending roller coaster of a journey that my family and I have been riding.  Yet, now, today I feel it’s distance. Where there has been hopelessness and darkness, there is a brightness of hope, a surety of peace.  Where I could barely muster the desire to pull myself out of bed, now there is a fire and a passion that burns and drives me to stand, to speak, to listen, uplift and love others. I’ve pondered so many times on the miracle that I am even still here, that I have a desire now to live and to love.  There are a few reasons for this miraculous change,and the one that stands out most to me today, and that ultimately is the answer, is God’s grace, His Love and His ultimate wisdom.

As today is Christmas, and Christmas is the celebration of God’s Beloved Son, I thought it fitting that these thoughts have been running thru me. This is what I know…. I know that Jesus, my personal Savior, has done just this…personally saved me. He has saved me, my soul, from an awful fate and he has saved me from having to feel the effects of guilt, hate, anger, hurt and pride all my life. At the same time, He has saved me to be a voice of hope. He has saved me so I could stand as a witness of His mighty power to heal and to rescue. He has saved me so I could experience His powerful love and testify of it. I know that He has never left my side, that he has always stood by me, watched over me and lifted me up. This is why I am now here today, with a love and hope burning brightly. In a society where others forget him, discard him, dismember him, and mock him…I stand by Him and for Him.   I realize that in His hands, we heal, we overcome, we live and we can love with great power. He has saved us all in hopes that we will be a manifestation of love and goodness in this world.  We are not alone, we are never alone.  Know this….now is your time to be free, to be happy and to manifest the godliness that is in you. You have a purpose….a mission, that you have been called to do.  Rise Up! Take courage in Christ…and know that what you need is on it’s way, and when your miracle comes….accept it with full heart and run with it!
