Weekend Inspiration ~ Our Powerful Self in A Crazy World

 

P8.png

I think we can all agree…it is a mess “out there”. And as it spirals every day, we get caught in that whirlwind and we can find ourselves wondering if everything is going to be ok. Are we going to be ok. What does the future look like and how do we have faith in it? All these thoughts tumble around, news seeps in, and before long…we are feeling down and powerless, our heads taking over our hearts, and wondering how we will get through it all. I say this, because I have had these feelings recently.

P4.jpg

But out of those depths came this – That, no matter how we feel “in our heads”…that is, no matter how low, insecure, or defeated we can feel at times…under those emotions…we are still the Person and Soul we always are…this does not change. It is only our negative feelings that take over our minds…but in our heart and soul…we are still the Powerful Spirit we have grown into, that does not change just because we feel insecure or defeated.

P1.png

Our lovely minds can go so many places with fear and anxiety…and certainly there are many reasons now for that. But that is just the mind. It sends us in circles up there…but down in the depths of our heart, soul, and character…those things do not change just because we think or feel insecure. We are still the Powerful Being we have always been.

P3.jpg

I turn in anguish, sometimes, at the messages spewed through our news and internet…and the negativity they carry. That negative energy wants to seep in and take hold of us.

P7.jpg

BUT, even then, it still does not change the fact that we are who we are and we have our own Power, Strength, and Purpose built in to our Being, our unique Self.

Remember all the while that…no matter what our feelings or troubles are…our Core Self which holds our Power, Strength, and Purpose, and Gifts is still there, living inside us, supporting us, and waiting for us.

Truth cannot be destroyed…it just is. So, the True Self will always prevail.

P5.jpg

Never let anyone, thing, or circumstance make you feel you are less than what you are worth. Your True Self knows that worth…Listen!

P2.jpg

And don’t forget to do those things that cultivate, feed, and nurture your True Self and Personal Power. Whatever that may be…meditation, gardening, singing, writing, praying…whatever feeds your Soul…do it! Let the world stay outside your boundary for those moments and give yourself the gift…of You.

BLESSINGS TO ALL!!

Monday Message ~ Faith In The Future ~ Repost

Good Monday Morning! Once Again, I find myself compelled to re-post this message as so many people lately have been wondering about the current chaos and the future. In my stats, many of you have been accessing this post…so I am re-posting it again today for our Monday Message. May it give you something to take into your week that brings some peace of mind. Hang in there, stick together…and Shine Your Love and Light! Blessings!

Today I felt the call to seek my “Gifts of Affirmations” cards by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber and see what message they have for us today. As always, the card I pulled speaks to us as we navigate through this awkward and difficult time. The card I pulled was…

Gift of The New:   “I Have Faith In The Future I Cannot See”

Message: “ Use this gift when you are worried or anxious. These feelings are usually caused by our attachment to either a particular outcome or to wanting to know exactly how things are going to turn out. We have the power to change our future. How many of our past worries never came to pass?”

F2.jpg

from The Desk of MarDrag:

With all that is going on in our lives and the world right now, it is hard not to worry and have anxiety. But consider that…so much of that worry is anticipation about what might happen and how we will be able to handle it. We can spin many tales in our minds and hearts about the “worst case scenario”, and then hold on to it, creating deep anxiety and stress. And sometimes, that energy helps to create what we are most afraid of, because that is what is foremost in our minds.

So, consider the act of staying in the moment and not projecting into the future. In this very moment, are you ok? Is what you are worrying about still just a thought, or has it happened? Is there still a chance a solution can be found? Have you worried in the past about something that never happened? Do you worry to the point of damaging your quality of life?

F4.jpg

There is a saying: For every problem there is an equal solution. A problem cannot exist without its counterpart, the solution, or then it would not be a problem. Believe that. Every problem absolutely has an equal solution. It is called the Law of Polarity. There is an opposite side to everything. If a problem exists…then the opposite of it, or solution, must also exist.

Now, focus on the Belief in the solution, instead of just focusing on the problem, and the channels open up so the solution can flow through. That is where the Power is. And in doing this, we eliminate all those moments, hours and days of anxiety and we retain some quality of life as we go through the difficulty.

F3.jpg

Just because we can’t see a solution in the moment…does not mean it is not there. And just because we have a problem(s) does not mean we have to allow it to color every area of our life, or define us, or feel bad about ourselves, or lose our daily dose of joy or peace. Do not give the problem that much Power. Keep your Power for the solution.

F7.png

Have Faith that the future you cannot see contains what you need and desire…and that energy will help to create those things rather than building on the problem. Have Faith that, just as you have done before, you will pass through your difficulty and thrive.

From The Heart

Sitting down to write this blog for the weekend, my mind and heart is full of woe for the state of things on our little planet and the suffering of those who inhabit her. The news is full of it (literally), yet…I am the ever hopeful, sadly optimistic creature I have always been…and I want to reach out and say…it does not have to be this way. There is so much whirling ‘round in me, wanting to spill out into words, but their eloquence would be lost in the wave of emotions I am feeling. So, I went searching in past posts for the articulation I could not muster today…and found what I want to say in pieces of several different past blogs. Some of them you are reading…as I see from my stats. So, I decided to take excerpts and combine them into this post.

I hope, with a loving heart, that you hear and feel what I so fumblingly and awkwardly want to convey and that these feeble but well intentioned words will soothe and inspire and warm you…for that is my most ardent wish. With Deepest Blessings and Love to all!

E1.jpg

About This Energy”:

The current energy flow is knocking us around…tossing us like leaves on a windy day. We get up in the morning and try to be “normal”…but this energy that is permeating our world seeps in and begins to take over, and we are affected by it. With all that is going on around the world…this flow of energy is dastardly. Everyone is feeling it. And having a rough time managing through it. World events, weather, and personal woes have accelerated with this energy, and it “looks” like no matter what we do, it is difficult to rise above it.

The most important thing is…we do not have to allow this energy to take over our lives. Even though it is rampant and strong and permeating…we still have command over our own Personal and Sacred Spaces…and we must not let this energy lead us to believe anything else. It would have us believe that we have no choice but to succumb to it…but that is not the Truth. And does not have to be “our” truth. Once we take this in and believe it, we can do something to reinforce our energy and personal power.

Cleanse and Ground: Each time one person Cleanses, Grounds, and gets their Light shining again…it connects with another who does the same…and that gets the Light flowing again. It is so imperative that we do not let this dastardly energy win by allowing it to take residence in our lives. Yes, we must deal with it and the world’s problems and find solutions, etc…but we do not and must not allow it to become the norm. We must fight it…and fight it by using our Light and the tools we have to keep our own space, our own lives, our own hearts and souls clear. By doing this…we contribute to the collective Balance and Peace we all wish to see become reality. That reality begins with our own lives…and from there spreads and flows into the world energy.

E2.jpg

Be the Light Force that you already are. Be Brave and Compassionate and Steady. We WILL get through this…and we WILL get to a better place. Believe!

E4.jpg

The Core of Our Strength”:

And at our Core…is our Spiritual Warrior…our Warrior Energy. This is that Core, that place so deep down inside us that there is no end to it. Our Core is like the Core of the Earth…forever burning bright, hot, and full of Power and Energy. It is the layers of worry, doubt, and fear that we throw on top of our Core Strength that dampens the flame.

Our Core Self will never abandon us, or run out of Strength. It is built in to us, for the purpose of holding us steady. That is what a Core does…it holds what is around it steady. It is the foundation, the rock solid axis on which we spin. So…our Core Strength can never forsake us…and we should trust it and rely on it. Believe in it…and believe in ourselves.

E6.jpg

The Wheel IS turning. Have Hope and Faith. Love and Be Loved. And strike your best Warrior pose in Strength.

Warrior2.jpg

“The Warrior Within”:

A Spiritual Warrior has the magic swordlike quality to cut through the cr*p…to cut away the old, stale layers to get to that True Nature. It is time to wield that sword and strike through the muck…cleanse it away…and allow the True Self to emerge. To cut away the attachments That hold us back so that we can move freely into the future. Only then will we know our True Path. And when we do this with single-mindedness and awareness…then anxiety and stress will dissolve and we will find the gift of perseverance comes to us to aid us in walking our path in Total Trust.

E10.jpg

Seek your Source, Spiritual Warrior! Draw your Source to you, let it flow into you, and fill you with its Power, your Power. Each and every Warrior has its own Source of life, of energy…draw from that unique and powerful well of Spirit that is you…for there is no other like you…and we need You.

love6

“Radiate Love”:

Love is the single most powerful thing that will get us out of this mess. Be Love. Radiate Love. Share Love. Allow yourself to Be Loved. Embrace Love. Give Love. Love Yourself. Love Unconditionally. Love is the opposite of hate. Make Love…and send hate packing.

From my heart to yours…

Weekend Inspiration ~ Faith In Your Future

 

I think we can all agree…there is a lot going on in the world, and our own worlds, and it has us thinking of how we will manage and get to “our future”. And what’s more…we are not sure what that future holds. Globally, it is not a time of peace and harmony. That makes us wary and unsure, because we have to live in these times and try to pull some happiness and success into our lives out of that lack. It can make our own lives off balance and…combined with our own individual issues…it can be discouraging.

These times take our courage and strength to get through. But consider this…if we allow all these things we worry about to weigh so heavily on us that we stop having Faith in our future…then we have lost that future right there, in that moment. The one thing that will make the future better…is if we have Faith in it now. If we Believe the future will rise up to meet us and be good…then we can Make It So.  We can not give up now! For ourselves, or for the world.

We are all magnificent beings with so many gifts and skills and love and compassion. Who is going to tell us we can not have the future we want to have? And certainly…we should not let that be ourselves who tell us that. Let us Believe in ourselves…in our Future…and have Faith that, for the Belief, Effort, Love, and Strength that we spend now…those are the cornerstones of what the future will hold.

Be Inspired To Have Faith In The Future…

Monday Message ~ Faith In The Future 2

 

Good Monday Morning! I am doing something a little different with my Monday Message post today. As I look over my stats for the blog, I can see what topics are most read. In the past few weeks, I have noticed a spike in people searching out the following post…so I decided to re-post it for our Monday Message as it appears many want/need to hear it. It is timely, given what we have been talking about here. So enjoy the post…and come back tomorrow for another blog about Transitions that has been begging to be written all weekend! I sincerely hope these help you get through the tunnel so many are going through right now. And remember…there is always, always the Light at the end of the tunnel. Stay with it…the best is yet to come! Blessings!
