Sand flies, Beach tans and Happiness 


August is New Jersey is a big month for vacationers. It’s the month before school begins and the shores are pumping with giggles and laughter and sunshine. This year is the first year that I decided to take an extended vacation. Never before in all my years have I been gone so long. It was often fear that kept me from doing so. The Kundalini Yoga tradition (I’m an instructor Level 1) has a Mantra called the Mul Mantra. The Mul Mantra is a  “root mantra” from which a spiritual foundation is built. There is a word in the mantra that is ਨਿਰਭਉ=nirbho or Fearless. This year I am decided to be more fearless, to live my namesake “God’s gift of Faith” instead of fear. Living in Faith is Amazing and filled with so much Grace! Fearless doesn’t mean we wake up one day and live without it. It means as we are faced with it we feel it and move through the feeling into the Truth. We feel the fear and still move forward. 
My faith took me on a journey, a vacation of three weeks and a deeper development in my Trust in Sources as my provider for all my needs. It was amazing and I feel rejuvenated, refreshed and restored. In fact i’m ready to return to work and ready to put my full attention to what I love. 

Europe has the right idea when they say “we’re on holiday.”  It is a holiday and celebration of life to take time off just to be, to enjoy life and to really Live. So what despite the citronella oil and probably toxic sunblock I still received bites on my arms, legs and back. I can look at each one as a testament to the beauty of the blues skies I laid under and the calm cooling waters I swam in. I can look at my beautiful brown skin now shades darker and know that the vitamin C I received was a natural outcome of fun in the sun! So what my pants are a little tighter and the scale moved up a few notches? I take that as an abundance of joy with mouthfuls of deliciousness! The gym will be glad to have me back in full force! Celebrate it all!!! 

What have you done this summer to celebrate your body? Your family? Your Life? Make time to do something today. If you normally take one day, two days or more off I challenge, encourage and implore you to take a few more. More than you think you can afford too and Trust, Pray and have Faith that you will be taken care of in the process. 

May you be prosperous in Spirit, rich in laughter and blessed. 



Prayer

Divine Love/ God's Love/ Goddess's Love,  moves into my frequency and produces vibrations of love. It is the very foundation to my life and as source it is in my breath and my light.  Its resonance and frequency goes out like radio waves and draws to me experiences that support more love. As Divine Love I am fearless. For Love absorbs all things within the atmosphere within and around me and transforms it all back unto itSelf. Only Love is real so only love is experienced. 

Affirmation

Spirit by means of me finds expression as a natural outpouring of my faith.

Upgrading your operating system


Today as I was working on fixing my computer’s camera because my computer wasn’t registering that I had one, it was suggested to me that perhaps I needed to update my computer.  So, I checked it and sure enough I did! It took the better part of almost twenty minutes to complete the task even after shutting down windows that were open and such. I wanted to rush the process because this happened at what I consider to be the most inopportune time, in the middle of a class via zoom. I wanted to rush through it but I couldn’t. It was going to take the time it was going to take, and interrupting it could cause serious damage or make the system operations inefficient or malfunction all together. 
This led me to think what other ways in my life am I missing connections to key components thereby operating inefficiently and need to update my operating system? Do you still operate from ideas and beliefs that you had five, ten, fifteen or even twenty years ago? Can you use an upgrade to your thoughts? If you are in the process of up-leveling your self through spiritual development, education or by any other means, do you feel it’s taking a long time? Perhaps changing behaviors is taking the better part of twenty years. Can you be patient with yourself? Like the computers update, our upgrades in spiritual, mental and emotional intelligence may take time. It will take the time it needs according to your individual programing. To interrupt it could cause challenges in the outcome of your evolution. 


As we are all on this beautiful journey, be gentle and patient with yourself. Never mind about others. They are there but you can only move, shift, transform and be you according to you, not them. Perhaps your changes are happening during a time that may not be convenient for you or for others, let it happen anyway and find peace in it. Peace brings the Grace necessary to face the difficulties of transition. 


Today be willing to up grade your operating system by allowing new information to enter your awareness and be patient with the time it takes for integration. Just for today acknowledge you are a student in this school called life and as far as you know your graduation date isn’t up yet. 

Affirmation:

I allow my system of thoughts, words and ways of being to be up graded by Spirit and I accept the time it takes to do so. I enjoy the journey.

Life is filled with twists and turns

Life is full of twists and turns. Enjoy them. 


Be patient with yourself as you navigate this road. While driving today I passed up a street and thought “maybe I was supposed to turn there” never the less I continued on the path that I thought I knew then turned down an unexpected street. Thinking unconsciously that I’d go straight down the street I was amused to see it was a winding road which brought me back to the street I originally wanted to turn on. (Trust that if it’s for you you’ll have it!)

Coming down that road I saw a sign that said parkway. I came to almost s full stop to make sure it was the “right” turn and the car behind me honked. (Don’t let others impatience with you make you rush)

The whole drive I kept changing my mind, first wanting to go left then straight. I know for the drivers behind me it was quite frustrating. For that I  apologize. But that is life. We will make choices and change our mind along the way seemingly right in the midst of a choice. As we navigate what is right and true for us we will make mistakes and even get turned around sometimes. Be brave. Drive on the road of your life with awareness of others and make choices that support your highest good while trusting that others are also making choices for their own good.  This creates independence and works toward interdependence instead go co-dependance. Trust we are all doing our very best.


Truly it’s about the journey and not the destination, for eventually we will all get to where we’re supposed to be. It's this level of trust you must have in order to Align with your greater GoOD

Today I realized that in my desire to be free from pain, in my resistance to what was showing up and what I was feeling I took the bait. The bait that was offered from the Angel called Temptation and Materiality. I was, in my pain and gave into the temptation to blame and project the cause of my pain onto the material world. Sometimes this can show up as a job, a person, a set of circumstances. Whatever it is, it is the effect which is the “material world” and not the Truth. The reality that I am the cause of my external experience. It is my creation how I embrace, embody and internalize the external world. This is where it gets tricky. Utilizing the Law of Attraction I recognize that I am in effect creating a vibrational resonance with the external circumstance. This is a rudimentary understanding of the Law. The Law exists and experiences happen period. Yes while on some level I am in relationship and thereby a participant in the causal power of the Universe through the direct interaction with my subconscious mind an advanced understanding and a demonstration of spiritual growth that moves beyond the “I created this” which can often be interpreted as “it’s my fault” is that no matter what is showing up and no matter how I did or did not created this I have to, we all have to be in conscious choice of how it is experienced. We can move into first cause at that moment, recognize or not our hand in it and accept what is without judgment. We can move into the feeling and like the breeze allow it to pass over us, through us and be still. In that stillness know that we are God. As God we are the creator and the created. God is not moved by it’s creation. God is only Love and sends Love to what is has created. In sending Love to what shows up we begin to effect change in the material world. We release ourselves from the temptation of blame, shame or projection and  stand in alignment with the Law that is the foundation of all Laws, the Law of Love.

In the definition of the “Law of Love” as written in Iyanla Vanzant’s definition based on her teachings in the class Practical Metaphysics at the Inner Vision Institute for Spiritual Development it says….

“As human beings, we often confuse our mental and emotional constructs of relationships, needs, and desires with love. We believe that we love people and they love us in return. TheTruth is, we are seeking a greater experience of the love within ourselves. In turn we want to share that love with the particular person.”

Once we move into the feelings that we are experiencing we can then make a choice to love. even if that love is to our self in that moment. When we love ourself and allow ourself to heal that feeling of hurt from the wounded inner child we can then experience that Love from within. When we experience the softening that happens naturally as a result of this nurturance then we can offer it to the other, the situation, person, job or circumstance. A pooling of energy happens spontaneously within the heart and a pouring of that pool of love washes clean the sin (sin errr in judgement) and all things are made new.

Side Note:
John Randolph Price has a book called the “Twenty-Two Angels” that govern our lives. These Angels are causal powers in the Universe. The Angel that I found myself in direct relationship with was the Angel of Temptation and Materiality. This Angel is represented by the zodiac sign Capricorn.


After practicing the Sufi Elemental Healing Breaths (found on my website) Bring your awareness to your knees. Breathing with your awareness there for a minute or two move to your bowels. Breathing with your awareness there for a minute or two move to your neck. Breathing with your awareness there for a minute or two slowly rub your fingers together and bring your awareness back to the room. I suggest you journal your feelings and be aware of your thoughts, food cravings and emotions for the next few days after.

Let go, Let go, Let go.....and its GONE!

If you’re on this earth at this time chances are you are on a Spiritual path. This spiritual path isn’t a passive path to be on. It is an active path. It is a path of compassion, of love, of forgiveness. It is a path of consciousness. It is a path of conscious action and this comes with every step we take, every breath we take and every thought we think. Today I am consciously choosing, as a Minister of Spiritual Consciousness to address the state of consciousness that I see in some of my constituents in the world of wellness. Wellness starts in the mind and from there it trickles down into our actions, words and experiences. I distribute Young Living Oils® and as a distributer of these oils I am in the business of wellness. I am in the Spirit of Joy, Faith, and Forgiveness which are some of the great essentials oils that Young Living® produces. As such I am openly addressing the arrogance and piety that is sometimes displayed when the mention of doTERRA® oils comes up. 

My friend is a doTERRA® distributer and user. She is a remarkable being of light and a fierce presence in the community of Spiritual Development. She is actively participating in the evolution of spiritual Consciousness in humanity by consciously participating in her spiritual evolution through practices that involve deeply being self aware and accountable for her thoughts, actions and speech and how it effects the fabric of humanity al large. When I see and hear the implications of “what kind of people” are using doTERRA®I am completely baffled. I don’t know what happened between Gary Young and Robert Young. It’s all hearsay to me because I wan’t there. What I do know is that those of us who distribute the oils from the respective companies are well-meaning individuals with a commitment to wellness at the foundation of our desires, and as we share what we love our sharing is done in the spirit of that love. 

We are entering into 2018 and it is time to lay the gauntlet down and work with love and forgiveness as the foundation of our being and not our doing. What I know about the oils I distribute and the person who created it based solely on one specific product, “The Ancient Oils of Scripture.” How I perceive a person who has developed oils based on scriptures in the Bible and using words like Believe, Forgiveness, Acceptance, Faith, is that this person would be a person who believed in the tenants of what he has developed and the basis on which those oils were named after. He must practice Faith, he must practice Forgiveness, and Acceptance. It is time that we, the people who distribute these products also embody to heart those beliefs as well. I say let bygones be bygones and lay down the burdens, cares and resentment, arrogance and snobbery. There is enough in this world for everyone. The whole element of competition is false and self-generated by fear, the fear of not enough. 
Let 2018 be the year that you live this mantra, “I am abundant, I am free, There is enough for you and for me.” Since it all begins in the mind, as Divine Mind and back of all things, as us, there is always enough. I am enough.  You are enough.There is enough for the both of us.

In 2018  I am Inspired to Live My Passion and Build My Dreams, in the field of possibility, that abundance is available to me and to everyone else according to our conscious acceptance of it. I believe in peace and good will towards all is possible and that Consciousness is elevated in every conscious action, conscious thought and conscious word towards that end, and as such we are effecting the very web of creation until we are all realized as connected and directed by the One presence back of all things, that which has created us in His/Her name. In the book “Love without Conditions” Reflections of the Christ Mind written by Paul Ferrini it says “to teach right, make right.” Again, I don’t know what happened. I do know that now they Young Living® and Doterra® both exist and that there is enough room on this sweet earth for both and the matter between the creators isn’t ours to hold like school kids picking sides. It is ours to Love without Conditions and practice Acceptance with Joy and love. 

As we leave behind a very challenging 2017, look into your heart and see what thoughts you are holding against someone? Are you still squabbling over the family rivalry from 1963 or 1816? Are you still holding onto what happened last year or the year before between you and another one? If you are I invite you to lay down your arms. throw in the towel and let bygones be bygones. What we ask of our country we must first ask of ourselves. Let go… Let go… Let go….. and its gone. 

Blessings into the new year my dears!

Have fun. Laugh a lot. And feel young and free again!

Some of us take adulthood very seriously. In fact, we are dead serious about being serious. Actually in all seriousness, being serious isn’t as serious as it’s made out to be. Being silly and having fun, now that's serious business. Last night I spent time on Church Street toasting marshmallows, and eating s’mores, drinking hot chocolate  and singing carols with the Salvation Army Man. I was about the business of having fun and I made contacts for my business in the process.

In the midst of all the joy, like the Grinch, there was a pinch then a moment that began to turn the tide. While standing in the freezing cold, with Popsicle fingers instead of Popsicle toes (nod to my mom and Micheal Franks) handing out “free pyramid sessions”, that people refused (That’s a whole other article about how we say no and don’t even know what we are saying no to, you know ….lol) ooh where was I …. Oh yea, During that sixty second period of time that felt like a very long while, I came upon a feeling that was like Pinocchio’s nose, it began to grow. For one reason or another I felt that I was missing potential customers and in that moment, felt anxious. Now just as fast as you please that anxiousness was starting to take over like an unwanted virus with an express card with carte blanc. What is a girl to do to get off the Reading Railroad and onto Park Place? I took a breath, dropped into the moment, let go of expectations and just like that I was back in CandyLand.

So this holiday season while still making deadlines, grading papers and stirring the pots and tossing the pans, stay in the moment. When circumstances and even people try and get you to play the game of sadness, madness and joyless-ness,
take a clue from fireman and STOP, DROP and ROLL.

Stop: Take a breath
Drop: Into the moment, into your heart, onto your knees……just drop cause you can’t put the fire out any other way, and…….
Roll: With what is going on, no resistance, releasing expectations and fully accepting what is.

And before you know it you’ll be back in Kansas with the click of your ruby slipper so you can Have fun. Laugh a lot. And feel young and free again!

Stop Yielding and Choose

Are you like me? Do you yield when the signs call for stopping? Today while driving I stopped at a stop sign and as my car rolled towards the corner and then came to a stop, I realized that I had to consciously make an effort, because I don’t always come to a full and complete stop. The definition of stopping at a stop sign is that all four wheels must stop. When you yield the front tires are stopping and as we drive off the back tires are still in motion and are only just coming to a stop as the front wheels have already started in motion again. 

One of my Philosophies is that where you do it one place you also do it in other places. So if you’re like me, a yielder at a stop sign and not a full stopper at a stop sign it’s time to ask a few important questions. “Where in life do you yield instead of coming to a full and complete stop?” Where do you not stop to take the time before moving onto another project, another business, another relationship, another anything? Take a moment and do the inventory. Stop and take stock. Unless we can see a behavior it will be impossible to change it. Changes may happen based on other things you do but to make a conscious and lasting change we must be willing to look at the behavior without judgement and lovingly and willingly make a new choice. Choice is our most powerful tool. Choice and commitment work together like a hammer, in two parts, the head and the handle.The head (choice) and the handle (commitment) drive the nail (decision) home and create whatever you desire. 

Coming to a full stop and taking stock will yield power results. Try it! I’d love to hear your results. 

Prayer:
I recognize God as the source of my life and in God my life is complete and total abundance. I am Alive in my fullness when I am in alignment and in conscious acceptance of this Truth. The Truth is the power of Divine Mind within my mind is the power of the right use of Judgement, which is discernment. In Discernment I use judgement from it’s highest perspective. When I I discern I am in Alignment with my thoughts, words and actions; in alignment with Life and that Life is abundant. Today as I lovingly and dispassionately stop and take stock of my life I can  accurately  see what is bringing more life through me and what is hindering life within me. I see clearly my choices and I choose life. I give thanks to all that has shown up to support this awareness and I let God do the work within me, molding my thoughts, affirming my words and guiding my actions such that I am an active participant in the changes in me that me in living in alignment with life and life more abundantly. I let God do the heavy lifting and release my cares trusting in the prefect outcome. Thank you God. So be it! Amen 

Affirmation:

I Stop look and listen before I move forward. I look to my right and my left and make sure I see all the options clearly for my life. I exercise the power of Discernment and I yield to stopping before moving forward. I am Powerful I am free.
