This entry is the inspiration Rose T. received after praying on a Fatima rosary for Blessings Go Round.
 
I have recently reconnected with Rose through Facebook (gotta love FB.) She was a great friend to me as a teen and gave me so much wisdom and inspiration. Though we were years apart in age, we got along like best friends. She was always happy and positive.
 
I know recently she has gone through many tests and yet is always positive and upbeat through it all. She is a truly blessed woman with a wonderful family. Here is her brief story in her own words:
 
“In the past 15 years I realized that we really don’t have control over our lives…life happens when you’re living each day thinking that things are fine and then something happens to make you realize life is so fragile.
 
Wishing for “things” and hoping for someone to get “better” if they’re sick used to be the “norm” and I’m sure it’s the “norm” for everyone.
 
I have realized since we don’t have control of our lives…we should just pray for strength and guidance and TURN the rest of it OVER ….. I find peace with the prayer…”trust in the lord with all your might lean not on your own understanding….acknowledge him in every way and he shall guide your path”
 
Thank you Rose for sharing with us your inspiring message. I too found my path and enlightenment later on in life. I guess sometimes you have to go through experiences to find the light.
 
Friends, I hope this entry inspires you to find your guidance and enlightenment. Have a blessed day!

I read an article today suggesting how to speak to a little girl. The editor sited epidemics at young ages regarding obsessions for being thin and the importance society places on beauty as being important which leads to negative trends in younger and younger children.

Happiness is... balance and confidence. Practice having these attributes in your life. Instill them in those you love.

This was a short article and how she spoke to a little girl was not the typical; instead of complimenting her on her adorable little self, the editor asked her what she was reading and got into reading a book with her. Basically instilling that reading was important and totally deflecting any interest or attention to her physical self and being a ‘cutie patootie’. 

I have mentioned a few times that life is about balance. Every child and adult wants to feel special. Outward appearance is important in society and being well-groomed and having manners are as important as being bright and educated.. I think. 

At a dinner party, do you want to sit next to someone who has the solutions to the world’s problems with bad B.O., sloppy, boogies hanging out of their nose, spitting while they speak, or speaking loudly and interrupting you … without any social etiquette?

Why wouldn’t you give someone a compliment on their appearance? Can’t you give a compliment on the appearance and also talk about books, intellect and how one carries oneself? This is where balance comes in.

Health equals happiness. To have physical health, mental health and spiritual health are the key ingredients in overall happiness.

If you are aware of who you are and steadfast in what you believe of yourself, under any circumstance, during any time, you will have confidence and strength.

We are human, we are weak, sad, sick, around negative people, etc. some times. But the stronger our value of ourself is, the more strength you will have when you are faced with times of being tested.

I know who I am. I am comfortable with myself. I am aware of my positive and not so positive attributes (which I work on) but at the end of the day and during times where I may have my confidence tested, I think about my core beliefs. I quickly get my confidence back and can carry on. I know I am intelligent and try to look and act my best … and that’s all I can do.

Practicing healthy ways of thinking and living on a daily basis creates this as a habit. This is reinforced by my ‘dressing up’ when I go out, knowing how to act and dress gives me confidence when I arrive where ever it is. I think it is important to give compliments of positive attributes regarding appearance, intellect and demeanor. This is balance and what everyone needs to have balance.

In closing, compliment that little girl on her adorable little self! Let her know how precious she is and also ask her what she is reading and what has she created lately. It’s all good.

By the way, I think that article is basically addressing American socially perceived views of perfection. In other cultures, if you do not achieve educationally or are the strongest in your tribe, etc. then that is what causes stress and a host of adolescent issue. I just wanted to point out, it is cultural as well as social what is seen as perfect and what causes issues among young and old(er).

Combating the ideals of society – correction – MEDIA driven society – is a battle. Do what you can for YOU, your loved ones and all you encounter to create positive energy, confidence and positive feelings of value and importance. This comes from everywhere; Spirit, mental, physical, attitude, etc. Reinforce the positive in all repects.

Thanks for reading … Have a blessed day 🙂

Change Inspires Change

I usually like to post once or twice a week at least but have been a bit side tracked lately. I have changed my routine a bit … for the better.

Enjoy the colors in my 'Life is Beautiful' handmade buckle. I really find the rainbow to be inspiring 🙂

 

I have taken on a healthier lifestyle (hope I can stick to it!) There is so much good food around and being in front of the computer all day has taken a toll on my body. Not only have a gained a few pounds, not a lot, but enough that I don’t feel like myself.  Sitting all day has given me aches and pains in my back and hips too, so I am now doing something about it.

Recently I went on a trip to central Europe with my husband and when I got back I had had enough! I snuck up on myself (this is how I do things… If I sit a round and talk about it I will never do it) and one morning got to walking for an hour a day. I am very proud of myself 🙂 I have kept it up for almost two weeks now and feel so much better. I also changed my eating habits.

So why so much personal information today? Usually I give you a little nugget of something to ponder based on my inspiration and experience … and today what has been digesting in my mind for over a week, I give to you. I have noticed that since I have changed my routine, I have received new inspirations and don’t feel caught in a hamster wheel. I have seen new birds and little animals on my walks and wild flowers popping up every day. All of these things combined with all of the great chemicals given off while you exercise has really made me feel great.

So for today, if you are stuck in a rut, that may not be healthy or boring or you need some inspiration, change your routine. Walk a block in your neighborhood you never went down, go in the evening or morning. Pick up a book instead of watching TV. Research something you have always wanted to know more about. We have tons of snails here and I researched how they have babies 🙂 LOL – See, inspiration from changing my routine!

Live life and make the most of it 🙂

One more thing, I also take this walking time to do my prayers. I say my rosary, give thanks and pray for my friends and family while I walk. It’s wonderful. Hip hip hooray for multi tasking on a spiritual and healthy level!

Have a blessed day!

Wet Pants

I received an email from my sister. You may have seen it before something about all the Susie’s in your life? Well I thought it was a cute way of illustrating a point. Give it a read. It’s sweet but the underlying message is significant and shows how you can be an instrument of peace and blessings for others. Have a blessed day!

With open eyes you will always see opportunities to help others. 🙂

************************************

Come with me to a third grade classroom….. There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a sudden, there is a  puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how this has happened.. It’s never happened before, and he knows that when the boys find out he will never hear the end of it. When the girls find out, they’ll never speak to him again as long as he lives.

The boy believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his head down and prays this prayer, ‘Dear God, this is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes from now I’m dead meat.’

He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a look in her eyes that says he has been discovered.

As the teacher is walking toward him, a class mate named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water. Susie trips in front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the boy’s lap.

The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to himself, ‘Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!’

Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts to put on while his pants dry out….. All the other children are on their hands and knees cleaning up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful. But as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his has been transferred to someone else – Susie.
 
She tries to help, but they tell her to get out. You’ve done enough, you klutz!’

Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting for the bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers, ‘You did that on purpose, didn’t you?’ Susie whispers back, ‘I wet my pants once too.’

May God help us see the opportunities that are always around us to do good..

Remember…..Just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car. Each and
everyone one of us is going through tough times right now, but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can. Keep the
faith.

This prayer is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let’s continue to pray for one another.
 The Prayer:
Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those that I care deeply for, who are reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of Your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy.. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace. Where  there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings.
 Amen.

Hello friends, I don’t like to mix politics with my inspirational blog, however the death of Bin Laden marking an epic event in world history has inspired me to deliver a message.

A new day is here ...

 

I would like to begin by saying the monster that cast devastation on this earth through his terroristic acts and those of his followers, not only on 9/11 but every day since, I am happy is dead. From the troops who fight the wars, to the families they have left behind to all of the bloodshed and families that cannot rest to changing the lives of innocent people on his own soil … so may lives lost, damaged and devastating impacts of epic proportions due to the insanity of one man’s mind who controlled so many others because of his insane views, opportunity to access funds combined with his high intellect; all used for evil intent which he let others to believe to be the right thing to do.

Osama Bin Laden was a devil on Earth. He had his way of convincing people to follow his lead by twisting a religion into a political and personal war to take over the world. People followed.

My message for today is to really find yourself. You never know when someone will walk into your life and try to brainwash you or have you thinking what they want you to believe for their personal agenda. Find your personal truth and remind yourself of it everyday.

As basic as believing in yourself to never give up and to follow the direction you feel is your path, if you are not in touch with a strong foundation of your beliefs of good and positive spirit, you may be persuaded to follow or believe in a perspective that may harm you or others.

If you see someone in your life, a teen, an adult, a person in despair that has seemed to lost hope due to disappointments, reach out to them and let them know they are strong and can overcome. People in a desperate situation are the most vulnerable to have their mind infiltrated by negativity and may possible be pursued into acts they would not ordinarily do.

Check yourself. Are you strong of spirit? Do you know your personal truth in the face of someone trying to convince you otherwise? This is so very important friends. People are around all the time who are jealous and have selfish motivations who will try to destroy you. Be vigilant and see who these people are and be strong of spirit to not allow them in your life. Similar to my post on toxic people, this self-serving, brain washing, manipulating type of person is the worst of the worst. Bin Laden, Hitler,… I am sure all that followed monsters like them, never thought they would be ‘brainwashed.’ I can and does happen.

I know it may be un-American and against my normal humane way of being, but this is my personal statement and I am sure most would agree; Thank you God for allowing the extermination of the disease formally known as Osama Bin Laden from this Earth. I am not proud to celebrate a death of a human, but he was a monster and THANK GOD he is dead.

Thank you to all the military personnel and support systems from all over the world who made this day possible. Thank you God.

Have a most blessed day and remember you have the power to be and do anything. Exercise your strength of spirit to find yourself and always be on a path of guidance through positive inspiration. Beware of false prophets.

What do you believe in, what are your convictions? What drives you? What are you passionate about? Who are you grateful to know? What are you grateful for experiencing? These are the things to pray on.

My one of a kind art belt buckle. Please enjoy my art as you are inspired by this post.

I like to pray on the positive. I think it helps to have the positive words echo in the universe. For example, when someone is sick, pray for their health not on the illness. I like to give power to the word ‘heath’ as it is the positive and most optimal outcome you wish for this person not ‘sick’.

It’s a simple little change that allows our prayers and meditation to have a deep profound impact on ourselves as we radiate the blessings outward to others. When we use the positive words in our prayers we feel them all day long. When you think of poor Aunt Edna being sick, you carry with you ‘Aunt Edna being sick’ all day.

When you pray on ‘Optimal health for Aunt Edna’ you carry with you ‘health for Aunt Edna’. Such a small change makes worlds of difference.

These positive words are the pull to the attraction blessings because the words we speak stay in our minds, hearts and spirit. When you recall what you prayed for earlier, you think ‘health for Aunt Edna’ and smile and send out more blessings … it goes on and on a domino of blessings … ripples of positive energy. You feel it inside you that you are hopeful and positive in your thoughts and intentions for her recovery.

You can apply this to your prayers, meditations, etc … Each and every one. This is what is called the law of attraction. I use it in my prayers but my small twist is that I feel if I say, ask for, and give thanks for the positive things, then there is always more because positive energy listens to positive energy.

We are strong when we are positive. Weak when we are negative. ‘Poor me’ is not part of who I am. Don’t be this person. Don’t seek prayer to give you blessings from a needy perspective.

If the universe sees you are weak how can it give you strength? You are weak in spirit and cannot carry to the load of blessings. Find strength for yourself so you can have more and more. You must show you are ready and willing to handle the blessings and not throw them away. God will provide. Show the universe you are worthy. You know you are blessed and can handle more blessing… Bring ’em on!

Give thanks, have gratitude and pray with positive inspiration. I have some examples for you:

Sickness > Pray for benevolence in a most optimal health environment.

Financial > Pray for benevolent blessings of abundance. Pray for opportunities and people to come into your life that will help guide you.

Relationship > Pray for a most benevolent love that creates a soul connection. Happiness, joy and abundance flow out of this relationship that is steadfast and stong.

No matter what the situation is, poverty, unfaithfulness, disease, you will find that praying for what you want to have will guide you to positive blessings.

I baked a cake yesterday. I mixed my batter, poured it in the pan and popped it in the oven. As soon as I closed the door it was done … Like I waved a magic wand! Do you believe me? Of course not.

As with most posts I like to include a little something to look at, usually that I made. Here were my 2010 Christmas cookies 🙂 A challenge to make in Portugal. Note to self – Bring more cookie cutters from NJ 🙂

This applies to our prayers and miracles. Miracles move at the speed of … well, miracles! 🙂 Sometime you are answered right away sometimes they take time.

I can assure you if you pray on something long enough there will be resolve. During your time of prayer you will have obstacles, questions and answers. This process will be leading to the miracles manifesting. We have to go through changes to live the miracle we seek. Just like the cake needs to bake. Changes are happening … liquid turning to fluffy solid … oozy batter becoming yummy cake.

You are becoming what you want by praying for it. You may kick and scream and not understand sometimes. Like physically working out, it hurts when you are out of shape but once you arrive to a healthy body, working out feels awesome. Your spirit is the same…. (which reminds me .. I need to get on that! Thanks Christmas cookies!)

Unfortunately for us, we have worldly desires that guide us to what we think we want, however it may not always be the best. Did you ever hear the phrase ‘Thank God for unanswered prayers?’ I’m sure if you look back on your life so many things have changed what you want to have, be, live like … and some of what you thought you wanted you may be super thankful that you never received. (Word up! I am proof of this.)

You are a constant project for God and the universe. He wants you to be the best you can be. You must sometimes be broken to learn the value of something or learn some other lessons before you are where you want to be. Have faith, because God wants you to be happy and have miracles manifest. Keep believing in yourself, and have faith that anything is possible.

After years and years of praying for what I thought I wanted … boy oh boy it was a lot of praying … One day I was inspired to give up my ‘ideas’ of what I wanted and pray for the most benevolent circumstances to have love, success and happiness. Pure happiness.

My heart knows what makes me happy. In fact, the base of who you as a person are, is your passion and your desires, right? So if I can’t find the words, or if my heart knows better than me what makes me happy, I asked it be delivered… and guess what … it was. In magnificent, glorious abundance. *So Blessed*

No I didn’t hit the mega millions 😉 But I did hit the lottery of life. Only one being out there for me and we were guided to each other. He, in his space was looking for the same. I opened my mind and spirit up to receiving the miracles and blessings as God wanted me to have the happiness I sought … without my specifics attached. The miracles manifested. Now my husband and I have the lives we both sought … It truly is nothing short of amazing.

If you can open your mind to putting what you truly ‘desire’  into your heart and spirit asking for your miracles, they will happen. Don’t be surprised if the miracles are more magnificent than you could have imagined! After all, this is the point … be limitless in what you ask. You will receive. When you ask for *specific blessings you limit yourself. God will work out the details. Focus on the big picture. Happiness? Love? Health? *What I mean about ‘specific’ is asking for  a man/woman with ‘x’ colored hair ‘x’ tall’ in ‘x’ shape with ‘x’ bank account ‘x’ education etc. Just ask for ‘your true love.’

Me and my Prince 🙂

To sum it up I asked > No one fulfilled > I asked why no one was giving me what I wanted > I was told what I was asking for was not good for me > I was redirected through enlightenment to request the bare bones, deepest desire of pure happiness and love.  No expectations, no fine print > Miracles manifested in more abundance than I could have asked for with my prior ‘small minded’ thinking. I brought to me through the divine my blessings. I had to be guided to him and him to me once I gave up the specifics.

The power of prayer is amazing. Pray for you, pray for your loved ones, pray for the world. Blessings Go Round has an initiative of praying on a rosary and passing it on to another person. Would you like to join Blessings Go Round the initiative? If you have gratitude for your blessing or need a little guidance on your path, you will benefit. If today is the day that YOU felt you needed to do something positive for your spirit, maybe it was no coincidence you read this 🙂 Please see this post (link below) to get the details. Ten rosary beads are out and about as soon as someone is done praying on it, and you are on the list, you will be sent a rosary. After you are done, send it to the next person … The power of prayer!

Thank you for stopping by and sharing in my blog. Have a most blessed day!

I had a deep meditation once. In fact it was my very first attempt at meditation on my own. I have always been the type of person to have a wandering mind, that’s why I normally don’t find the joy in reading other’s do since I can’t stay focused. Because of this I always thought I would never be able to meditate and clear my mind of everything… I thought it would be impossible since I am always thinking creatively and my mind doesn’t stop.

A friend of mine had given me a tip to envision myself filling up with water and that would put me in a state of calm and relaxation. I tried this technique and it didn’t work. I had to imagine something tangible… For me, what did the trick, was to imagine an all white room with white furniture and a big glass window where all you could see was blue sky and a hallway … I guess this is the hall way that led to my visions.

I have only told a few people of this meditation I had some five or more years ago. It actually was my first real, concentrated attempt at meditating. After so much prayer work (prayer being meditative in itself) I wanted to move to the next level and really get divine messages and a clear path.

I didn’t go into my meditation with any expectation, just to know what lied ahead of me and my purpose … Was that generally specific enough? LOL You know, nothing major 😉 Well anyway, I lied down on my couch and got comfortable and I think my hands were at my sides, legs straight. So it began…

Once (and almost immediately) I began to relax and let go, like a movie, it started in my mind. It was more vivid than a thought, more like a dream. Very intense like you are actually there… for those of you who have dreams that feel like they are really happening, this is exactly like how it felt, but I was not asleep. It was like an in between dream and waking state.

The vision started with me in a room. It was blacker than black. The room was a shack that looked like a one room rustic old cottage in the middle of the woods that had been there forever.

My senses were shut off from receiving anything. I realized I had a blindfold on and I must remove it. Once I removed the blindfold, the room was pitch black and I wandered in circles looking for a way out . Not frantically, more so like when you know where you are and looking for a light switch, like I was milling about in the room. The truly extraordinary thing that happened to me was that I knew, I felt, that I was not alone in this room. I felt that some entity was shadowing my steps. In circles I went and there was someone, something, there following me silently but keeping distance.  I finally found a door and stepped out.

It seemed to be 4 or 5am in the middle of barren woods.  Imposing trees without leaves bowed into each other, like a scene from a scary fairy tale. Without a clear path I walked through the woods. This entity followed me some steps behind.

A path began in front of me as there began to be some dawn in the woods. This beginning of a path was covered with boulders and down trees. Like a really rough path in the woods. I had to hurdle and go around all of these ‘obsicles’. The entity followed. The obstacles got smaller and less frequent.

As the path became more cleared of these obstacles and began to become more of a straighter path, now with rocks and smaller debris on it, the trees also became more full of life with leaves and the sun was out like early to mid morning. This entity walked behind me still and closer and closer it got.

The trees and forest became bushes and hedges, the path was now dirt and clear of troublesome rocks, twigs and was clean underfoot with the exception of pebbles. The entity was walking next to me … I felt it.

I had this feeling to look back as now I was out of the woods. I wanted to look back but also felt that it didn’t matter at the same time. I felt like ‘Why look back?’ But at the same time I felt I needed to. I looked behind me and saw nothing. A wall of black and at my heels, nothing. I was standing on the edge of absolutely nothing behind me. Nothing above me. Nothing below me. nothing behind me. The spot I stood in was the beginning on my path and with each step more path developed, but only as much as I was being shown. I could not see ahead of me toa great distance, I was being shownjust enough. I felt the entity was no longer there next to me but maybe, in me? It had disappeared. This was all so surreal … yet felt very real.

I looked forward again and began to walk. The path still dirt and clear with just what you’d expect to see on a dirt road, little pebbles and such. On either side of me was tall grasses that became shorter and shorter until they were about three feet high. At this point a paved path was laid before me and it felt like late morning. This path was made of brick paving stones with that criss-cross pattern (as in real life I love tile and stone floors with the different shapes and patterns).

This paved path was divine. I felt so good walking on it. Both sides as far as I can see was this tall grass blowing in the breeze. The grass began to get shorter. After being on this path a while, a snake slithered out in front of me … I had to stomp on it and kill it … it’s what I had to do. I killed the snake picked it up and cast it aside.

I walked some more and a bunny hopped out in front of me. I bent down, picked it up, and helped it to the other side. I felt that (this is crazy, but this is what I felt) ‘In life you will encounter obstacles and you must deal with some in one way and others in another way. ‘ This is what I felt once I opened my eyes about this encounter.

After I put the bunny aside and he happily hopped into the grass, I started to walk and looked up in front of me. The most magnificent rainbow was in the distance. Glorious and colorful with the sun in perhaps the eleven o’clock position in the sky.

That’s it.

I opened my eyes and tears were streaming down my face. I didn’t know I was crying until I opened my eyes or how long this vision was going on during the time of having it.

This was my life.

My entire life in a vision. Maybe the rainbow will be my 2 pm moment? Maybe the end of my life? I did not know. The rainbow was a promise that all will be joyous and my life will be enraptured in magnificence . I know this for sure. 

As for the entity. Was it Jesus? Was it God himself? All I can tell you is that I knew this entity was the source of all purpose, calm and guidance; and I had to find myself before anyone could help me. I have to find my own strength and path before I could receive assistance or a ‘reinforcemnt ‘ from any other source. I am connected now. I found my way. This spiritual enlightenment was beyond words.

It took me a few years to digest this and rationalize this meditation and vision. It still teaches me things as I look back and recollect it.

I never had heard of anything like this before or read about it. One day when I was visiting a friend in a store called ‘Angel’s Touch’ in NJ (now it is closed) a very spiritual lady and dear friend M’Linda Kula showed me this book with a drawing of Jesus standing in front of a black wall, like in my vision. I was like ‘OMG!!’ as you can imagine. I shuddered to see MY vision in print … This was exactly what I saw, the wall of blackness … nothingness…emptiness. He was showing people to go to him, he was the way or that (the black wall)was the alternative. Nothingness. Not hell, with fire and demons. Just nothing …. Wow. This was weird.

So, friends I know this was a really long post and I left out details because my vision was so radiant and detailed it could be a book. It lasted about forty five minutes I recall.

You can conclude what you will … but this is what happened. And by the way, I did go back to this vision few weeks ago as I was being challenged with issues and knew that the only place to find answers was on this path… on MY path. And the rainbow was not the end of my life. I will tell you about that vision in another post.

Guardian Angels Hand Painted Tanks by Anna Pereira

One day when I was walking about spreading my blessings, the devil came up behind me. He saw my big beautiful wings and was so envious. He tried to rip them off, but only got aways with a few feathers. You see, as he reached for my divine wings, that have been given to be by God himself, coming from a  sacred source, and the devil from evil, he was cut by them. My feathers cut him like razors as his intention to touch me was to do me harm. Those few I lost did hurt, but they grew back. The scars the devil bears from reaching for such opulence out of envy, to take what was not intended for him, will be with him forever.

I saw a child that was in need of comfort and nourishment of the spirit. I wrapped my wings around him and calm, peace and love filled the child. My wings were soft and silken to the touch of the child. Wrapping him in magnificent bliss.

Being an angel is not an easy task. Sometimes I get hurt through the process of identifying evil. The child could have been the devil in disguise, but never do I give up doing good and giving when I can for the benefits of joy and gratitude far outweight a temporary pain.

This metaphoric story is based on a real life inspiration of people who I have encountered in life. Be vigilant of those who try to walk with you. Always be giving and bless those around you. Know that not all who are the intended recipient of your blessings appreciate them and they may even hurt you after you were so giving.

Practice love and forgiving. Be grateful for the power you have to be full of strength and inspiration. Keep giving and shining your light where it is dark. Grace and positive spirit will always keep you strong.

GREAT NEWS! Friday will be my first report on miracles that manifested for Cat P. in WI, USA. Please watch for Friday’s post to read a magnificent story as told by her of her experience with her Fatima rosary. Truly inspiring.

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

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!
