Weekend Inspiration ~ Faith In The Future ~ Repost

 

Faith 1

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…

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!!

Weekend Inspiration ~ Hang In There & Shine ~ Repost

 

H.jpg

Our weekend has begun and the message today is two-fold. There is a lot of tension in the air as many terrible things happen in today’s world. We are all feeling the grip of the negative energy swirling around us…the fear, apprehension, the uncertainty of what is to come. It is not easy to stay out of that fray of energy and stay balanced and grounded. All while managing our daily lives and routines too. It is a lot to deal with…and my heart goes out to everyone as we struggle through it.

So, my messages today are an attempt to comfort…while also encouraging not to give up, and not to stop shining our badly needed Inner Light on our worlds and the world around us. I know it is not easy to do this, when there are so many factors working against us. But…remember…Light and Love do prevail. We must believe this! Just when it looks the darkest is when the stars shine the brightest and illuminate the shadows. Stay with it…your valuable Light and Energy is needed. And, if we all stand together, hands held, hearts and Light as one…how can that not succeed? Believe in your Self, your Value, and the Power of your worth. And…as you Hang In There…Shine! Blessings!

About This Energy ~ Help! ~Repost

 

S11.jpg

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. In my work these recent weeks, I find myself repeating and reinforcing the same message, reminding people of a few things that will help with this process, and encouraging everyone to stick to these things, to not allow the rampant forces to overwhelm us. I share those things here too, in hopes it will help in some small way.

S1.jpg

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 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.

S3.jpg

So, the first thing to do is…Cleanse and Get Grounded. Whatever your spiritual or religious beliefs, there are processes, prayers, meditations, and rituals for Cleansing and Grounding. Do them. Often. I have just such a process I teach, and do myself, and it helps so much. Just yesterday morning, I did my Cleansing process and felt and saw the sludge of negative energy cleanse from my system and aura…and I felt so much better for having done it. I then Grounded my energy with the Earth Mother, reset my Boundaries, and declared my Sacred Space clean and clear. I was able to go on the rest of the day Balanced and Centered. Even though “that energy” was still near, I was better able to keep it outside my Boundary and not allow it to overtake my day and mood or affect how I felt and related to others.

S7.jpg

Much of the angst we are all feeling is not connected to anything in our own lives. Certainly, we all have issues in our lives to deal with…but with the enhancement of this negative energy, those things seem bigger and harder to manage. But, the real issue is…much of the negativity we are feeling is because of the global negative energy that is rounding this planet. If we can remember that…and Cleanse ourselves of it as often as possible…it will make our own issues easier to handle. And…it will press back on the global negative and help to change the flow.

S4.jpg

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.

S5

So, let us each consider and focus on what we can do to keep our own energy Clear and Grounded, which helps us to operate and be in our lives in a better way, which helps the collective. It is a ripple that begins with each individual. This is how we can make a difference right now, in our own lives and in the overall energy.

S8.jpg

Stand in the center of the circle of our life as the Spiritual Warriors that we are, raise our swords, and declare that we shall vanquish this dastardly foe…one moment at a time…one day at a time…one Light circle at a time…and as each of those connect…we begin to build a circle of a far different nature…and Balance and Peace become possible.

(If anyone wants to know about the Cleansing and Grounding processes I teach, please feel free to contact me at the email address on the contact page. There are two blogs about Boundaries posted last week if you would like to reference that process.)

S9.jpg

Go out in your life today and be that True Self that you are no matter what is happening around you. Remember…our Core Self never changes…it is always there to support and guide us…even when we feel everything else has overwhelmed us. 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!

And, from my Heart and Soul to yours, I send you Love, Light, and Support! May each of you be filled with Love and Peace this day!

Blessings!

What To Believe In ~ Repost

 

B4.jpg

That is a question I have heard a great many people sounding out lately. Everywhere, in all corners of our lovely Mother Earth…”stuff” is happening. Unsettling things, events we never imagined, people and governments doing wild and erratic things…and it feels like the energy is only ramping up…and we wonder how to deal with it all, how we will continue to forge our own paths. In the midst of our confusion lies an impossible conundrum…

What To Believe In…Anymore.

B5.jpg

I read a headline this week that said we have lost hope and have nothing more to Believe in. And I want to challenge that headline here. Because we absolutely DO have something left to Believe in. Even in the face of such things we appear to have no control over…we still have something solid, steady, and powerful to Believe in. And that is…Ourselves!

B2.jpg

We may feel we are at a low point, and when we look out into the world, there is precious little to stake our hope and belief in the future on. And So…if we cannot find Belief out there…the most profound and sacred choice would be to…Believe in Ourselves.

B1.jpg

Believe that we can still retain our Inner Light, our Inner Peace, and our Inner True Soul and Self…because nothing and no one can ever take those from us. And with those, we can still forge our lives in the best way we can to follow our paths…which we still can…and must…do.

B7.jpg

By Believing in ourselves even in the face of all this confusion, it keeps the concept, the energy of Believe alive and real and resonates in the air and energy around us.

B4.jpg

We cannot allow Belief and Hope to die. We must keep it alive, within ourselves, so that…no matter what…we still have US, our lives, and the Love and Light that we shine. It can and will make a difference. We must not stop Believing in that.

B3.png

NO MATTER WHAT WE THINK IS OR ISN’T OUT THERE TO BELIEVE IN ANYMORE…THE MOST IMPORTANT AND LIFE AFFIRMING BELIEF…IS IN OURSELVES. THAT IS WHO AND WHAT WE BELIEVE IN…AND THAT CAN CHANGE ANYTHING!

B5

Blessings!

Do You Believe In Magic? ~ Repost

 

M2.jpg

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.”  ~ Ronald Dahl

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”  ~ W.B. Yeats

“Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”  ~ Laini Taylor

“Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.”  ~ Nora Roberts

“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.” ~ Goethe

“I do believe in an everyday sort of magic — the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we’re alone.”  ~ Charles de Lint

M7.jpg

from the Desk of MarDrag:

Do you believe in Magic? Do you believe there is energy around us, pulsing and moving and creating? Do you believe in the Magic of Belief? Or the Magic of Love…or the Magic of the Heart and the Mind?

I think, that in this chaotic and sometimes distressing world, we can lose sight of the Magic that exists, that Magic we believed in and saw in the world around us, as a child. That Magic that we created our dreams with. A child sees with unclouded eyes, with innocence that what it sees is undoubtedly true and real, even in their imagination. That is how dreams are born and manifest.  As we grow and experience more of the world, and its harshness, we lose so much of that innocence and ability to believe that there IS Magic all around us and that we can have it in our lives. If we just recognize it as we look at the Magic of Nature. Or listen to the Magic of Music. Or feel the Magic of falling in love.

M6.jpg

But, there is also the Magic of Will, of Belief, of the Heart and of the Glowing Light within us that helps us create the life that we so desire. Or Will a solution to a problem to manifest. Or have the conviction that something we desire will come to us. Or even just the Magic of a Smile, to lighten someone’s day.

M1.jpg

Today, if even just for a moment, look around you and see if you can spot a bit of Magic and focus on that, draw it to you, feel the tingle of that something that is outside all practical thought. Just for a bit, open that part of yourself that dares to see past the severity of life to the enchantment and charm of possibilities when you tap into the Magic of Life. It is there. That glittering sense that there is so much more to what we see than what we see.

M3.jpg

Magic is everywhere…don’t forget to look. And when you look…Believe in what you see. And when you Believe…amazing things will happen.

M8.jpg

Blessings!
