Creating positive energy means removal of toxins; this includes people. Please enjoy my handpainted 'Energy' tank top as you read this post ūüôā

How do we create a more harmonious space for ourselves? How do we find peace and serenity in a world filled with noise, pollution and toxins? I have to admit, I spend a lot of time alone meditating and praying and I am very blessed to have the environment to practice my prayer and well-being in. This is where I get my messages and feel a sense of peace, calm and guidance. I do thank God for the space I am provided with so I can practice being a better person through my spiritual connection.

What if you don’t have that space due to your environment. I admit it makes it much more difficult. I can suggest to you to go to a park,wake up early before anyone else rises or find a vacant space to meditate and pray in. Is it possible? Can you find that place to connect to spirit and be at peace? If we search we can all find a little nook. This is vital. To really connect and free yourself of the agitating stresses around you are, peace calm and a positive vibe is¬†paramount in achieving a successful meditation and prayer session.

I would like to address one toxin in particular in this post. This is the worst one of all because it is ever-changing and hard to escape; a toxic person.

Sometime we¬†feel guilty for them as we are being manipulated. Sometimes we are the ones that make¬†ourselves feel that we need to be there for them since they always have an issue. Health, money, family, work, etc. I want you to understand I’m not talking about someone who is calling you once in¬† blue moon to talk about an issue or crossroad in their life, and then you have a hundred more positive communications with them. In fact it is a most divine blessing when our loved ones call upon us to seek guidance and we can genuinely help them. ¬†I am talking about someone who you have come to know as always looking at the negative side of things; one who is always sick or complaining; nothing is ever their fault; they never seem to make good decisions; talks about themselves all the time and never once asks how you are and if they do berates your decisions and blames you for being in your situation. The list goes on, but you get the idea of my definition of a toxic person.

Do not be duped by the ability these¬†toxic people have to¬†manipulate you. They may appear to be¬†weak, helpless, alone, suffering from some illness the comes up when convenient. The good news for these¬† toxic folks is God has given¬†us the great gift of being blessed to help ourselves! Yahoo!¬†¬†Yet these people need to vampire your strong, healthy spirit to build themselves up. These relationships must be eliminated from your life. You can pray for someone all you want, but if they are not receiving your prayers you must say good-bye to them with love and know it is between them and God. You cannot heal them. You can give them the spiritual medicine but if they do not take it, you cannot continue treating their illness of ‘toxicity’ as they suck you dry.

Some relationships, especially with family, are very hard to walk away from. You need to make a decision. Does this person bring you down and not make you feel your spiritual best? Are they ever receptive to your good intention? If this is chronic, you must let them go with love. Don’t argue. Bless them with finding the most benevolent resolution for their issues. Be open to the idea they will be enlightened and be back one day.

Do not feed the fire. The more ‘wood’ (all of your good intention) you put in will be consumed by the ‘fire’ (their issues, negativity, anger, etc.)¬† They must seek their happiness through themselves. Their healing through themselves. Your job is to be strong, spiritual and divinely connected so you can spread positive energy and blessings to those who need it most and have gratitude for your blessings. You are a walking,¬†radiating white light wherever you go. The people around you who are receptive to your shining blessed spirit, despite their circumstances,¬†will feel your good energy. When you have nothing dragging you down, your positive energy¬†will only multiply¬†and crate¬†ripples of peace, love and joy.

Fill the world with positive spirit. Be blessed and pass blessings to all you encounter. Pray and seek the answers on cleansing your life of all negativity. Be vigilant of the negative energy, vampires and toxic people looking to bring you down and steer clear my friends!

I’m sitting in my backyard and it’s a brilliant day out. I have a lot to be thankful for.

The other day I was taking some notes about what¬†to write about until we get some stories coming in from those who are praying on the Fatima¬†rosaries (by the way, one has been sent out to the first person on the waiting list so far. Please see the first post and join us before the waiting list gets really long.)¬† I was thinking, usually, for those brought up in a strong religious or spiritual home, prayer is part of the daily routine. I however, was raised Catholic but never felt one with my religion because¬†I don’t like how¬†we are made to feel guilty, sin is bad and that was the word (no explanation¬†really)¬†and all the scandals in the church (which were sins, but excused)¬†made me a bit sour. This is why I do not see myself as ‘religious’,¬†however, the fact that Jesus is God’s son and Mary is his mother and so on is very strong with me and there is a God and the spirit of the universe is the reason for all existence¬†and lives within each one of us. I always had a hard time accepting that the bible was written by man, and the translations that some used to preach it are all … well…¬†and not to my taste; maybe one day I will find a church that I feel completely one with… one day.¬†

Through life I went never fully attaching to a spiritual or religious practice, until my early 30’s… I know I mentioned some of this before.¬†When I had no where else to turn I started listening to my inner self and began to pray (my earlier post tells you the story). I learned the rosary and for a few years I just prayed and prayed … I guess I really had a lot of work to do to reattach¬†ATTACH to spirit. There was lots of crying and trying to understand what am I supposed to do. The day I was inspired to pray for others was one of my biggest¬†and most fulfilling moments. I realized that praying for others was MUCH more peaceful and gratifying than to keep asking for what I wanted. I mean, isn’t that usually the first instinct for those of us that don’t pray ‘Oh please God don’t let this happen to me … I need this … Please God deliver me that…etc.?’¬† The day I realized it wasn’t about me, it was about what can I do for others is when everything started to open up for me.

Praying for others as well as giving thanks and gratitude led me to a place that you cannot image before you get there becasue¬†it’s hard to know it even exists. Many of you reading who are attached to spirit know what I mean. I know that everything will work out. I KNOW this. One way or another… everything will be fine. I have learned to see the brighter side of things more quickly… all because I pray for others, I know the universe and God give back to me what I’m giving it. If I am theere for others, I know someone will be there for me. If not a physical human, then God. I simply ask ‘Dear Lord, guide me to someone I can help today. I send out a random prayer and blessing to anyone in need. Please bless them with the most benevolent environment for their situation.’

Today just think about others. Once you take the focus off yourself, you have nothing to be stressed over. Once you give your thanks to God, if you believe in him, you know He will provide.¬† Stop stressing. Know in you heart you are doing the best you can. Give thanks for your blessings and pray for those in need… even if their need is for them to find their own¬†path to gratitude and living in peace and joy. I know people who¬†need to be prayed for, just for them to find their way to a spiritual path. We all know someone who needs to ‘find themselves.’

Pray for others, pray for yourself…. Do you want to join ‘Blessings Go Round’ the initiative? We are praying on rosaries I purchased in Fatima Portugal. These rosary beads will be making their way from person to person around the word. Please see my first post on how to join us. It’s free and this is a group effort to spread the love, joy and blessings. Grow strong with prayer and find your clear path through you and God.

Enjoy my one of a kind belt buckle as you read my post ūüôā

Thank you. That is the one and only prayer that needs to be said. As I mentioned before … Prayer is not about a religion. If nothing else, give thanks for your blessings and say ‘Thank You’ to the universe and to God for blessing you with all of the beautiful things in your life and the problems too.

¬†If it weren’t for hardships and issues we would not grow or appreciate the happy blessings. All hardships and struggles are unsolved problems. Thank God he gave you the opportunity to figure out a solution and an opportunity to grow because out of difficulties always blooms a new life of opportunity, understanding, change, movement, positive energy and more.

Just take a moment from what ever you are doing and say ‘thank you’. Say it again and again. The more thanks you give the more you will have to be thankful for. Read that last line again. I don’t think you will disagree.

Let the blessings flow.

Maybe today is the day you decide to be a part of something grand. Read my first post and join the Blessings Go Round movement. My personal initiative to spread blessings around the world. Click this link >>>

What game was it that we played as kids … Person Place or Thing, right? When you described something and someone had to guess… Anyway I wanted to talk about God.

One of the big questions is ‘Who is God?’ ‘What does God look like?’ ‘Is God a man or woman?’ Isn’t that funny? I think these questions are so funny. ¬†Isn’t that why we have Jesus? He is the son of God since God couldn’t be here in a physical human form. My idea of what God is, is not man or woman. We have given God a face in art, paintings and images so we as humans can associate ‘God’ to being an actual something. It’s too abstract to say God is energy… that God is in everything… every cell of everything everywhere. God is the essence of life. Even where nothing exists to the naked eye, something is there that will start life.

As well as starting life, things are kept in balance by God. God is an energy that creates. To create, things needs¬†to be destroyed sometimes. To create a painting a white canvas is no longer a white canvas.¬†If the earth didn’t change, dinosaurs would still be here. The earth is living and constantly evolving and we are here for just a blip. I don’t know what God has planned for this planet, solar system, universe or beyond. This is¬†why Jesus was sent here to be the custodian of the people and earth. Filled with divine inspiration to help us be better people to each other and to this plant so God would be happy, proud and¬†find us worthy enough to let us rent space on his divine creation for another day. To create a positive energy and balance among the humans, animals and plants. From God’s mouth to Jesus’ ears, he led the way for us to understand¬†how to be worthy of taking care of this magnificent creation for the creator, God. Of course this is but one part of the role and relationship of how I see Jesus and God, others would sum up Jesus as ‘he died for our sins’ but I’m not getting into that right now.

So in short, my perspective of God is something as small as a nano-particle that if you divided it into a million bazillion pieces, God would still exist in¬†it; ¬†God is also bigger than¬†our universe times a million bazillion. ¬†Now I have a headache … LOL … I’m not smart enough to get so philosophical nor am I a physicist! Especially at 4:54 am ….

And a little more to think about, the most intelligent of the scientific community believed in God … no matter which direction you take your ‘worship’ or ‘faith’ in …all roads¬†lead back to God. Check out http://www.godandscience.org/apologetics/sciencefaith.html¬†if you care to see the list of some rather¬†famous¬†peeps from the scientific community…

How are you feeling today? Grateful? Lost? Seeking your purpose? Are you looking for answers or to just¬†spread positives vibes because YOU are so blessed and wish for the rest of mankind to feel as blessed as you? Would you like to join Blessings Go Round? We would love your energy to be part of the initiative ūüôā So as I always post the link back to my first post, here it is:
