Pain is Power

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
– Kahlil Gibran

The Gift of Forgiveness

Forgiveness How often do you pray for those who you have perceived have harmed you? How often do you ask that they be blessed (blessed means to be as God created them to be) and shown mercy and grace by God’s unconditional love? How often do you ask God to let his love be the medicine that heals the wounds embedded in the soul of the ones who lash out at us? The true barometer of being Godly is to still love others when they are being anything but loving towards us. This is forgiveness and it is to give the forgiven something that they have not yet seen in themselves and that is the awareness that they are love. There is a reason that the words for and give are intertwined in the word forgiveness: We give something for something. WE give light to others regardless of the evil others may do to us so that we ourselves may have it. When God said, “let there be light,” he meant be love and there will be light for when there is light it shines for one and for all. When we give good for all the evil someone does to us, we give a light that we shall receive in return and only then can we transcend the darkness together as one.I will be the first to say that it is not easy to forgive for the ego wants vengeance, retribution and punishment. Perhaps the one thing that needs forgiving most of all is our unwillingness to be led by the spirit and allowing the ego to rule.

Relax and Enjoy the Ride

You better laugh, you better be happy and you better even be happy when you are blue. Too much is at stake to feel down on a continual basis. Too much. Scientists have not even begun to explain the full magnitude and devastation of chronic stress on the human organism; the effects that can last from generation to generation as studies are even showing that a developing fetuses stress level can be predetermined in utero by the stress levels of the mother and interfere with normal brain development. Stress is now even being linked with the unraveling of our DNA as stress seems to shorten our telomeres which are the caps on the end of our chromosomes.  Yes, all we have heard about stress is true and then some. Chronic Stress is a killer, a destroyer of our minds and bodies

Forgiveness is Self-Defense

Negative emotions harm you more than you know. Forgiveness is an act of self-love and kindness. Today, love yourself and be kind. You need it; you really do.

Up, Up and Away

What I love most about life is our potential for growth and expansion. That we are not fated to be on one particular vibe. We can spread our wings and fly higher than we did in a previous life time. Holla if you hear me. God knows I am so glad that I am not the person I used to be. We can change. ♥

Seek and you Shall Find

Every experience, no matter how bad it seems, holds within it a blessing of some kind. The goal is to find it. ~Buddha

Peace Be Still

Joy comes from staying in the center within  us regardless of the storms that rage without. “Peace be still.  “
