Your Glory Days Await You

February 9, 2016

 

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

 

If you’ve read the book of Joshua, you’re aware it’s about how the Israelites conquered Canaan, the Promised Land. Through their stories of biblical blemishes, battles and miracles, you can see how Joshua is a leader, very obedient to God. He faces overwhelming odds with divine help.
Glory Days
Leading inspirational author, Max Lucado’s book, Glory Days: Living Your Promised Land Life Now, has written his account of living your own promised land based on the Old Testament book of Joshua where the promised land isn’t a physical place, but a spiritual reality.

Glory Days spells out the way to close the gap between the person we are and the person we want to be by expecting life’s challenges and knowing that God’s promise is victory for we are joint heirs with Christ! We already have God’s favor if we believe and trust in Him — victory is ours.

Lucado reminds us that the Promised Land property has been placed in our name just as God placed Joshua’s Promised Land in his name, we, too, are just like Joshua.

How did Joshua do it?

Lucado says it best when he says, “. . . it wasn’t enough for Joshua to possess the Scriptures; God wanted the Scriptures to possess Joshua.”
Want your own glory days?

What are you waiting for?  Let God’s word be your guide. Your glory days await you!

An ancient call to pilgrimage – Go(d) with me resting into the mystery

June 8, 2015

“And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself” – Rumi

Even as Soul of a PilgrimI settle back home from my own recent pilgrimage to France and Italy, I continue to reflect on Christine Valters Paintner’s book, “The Soul of a Pilgrim – Eight Practices for the Journey Within,” where she shares, “… God is never a set of concepts to be understood but a relationship to encounter.”

My pilgrimage was a spiritual journey walking many miles each day for 10 days through well-worn holy territory. Paintner’s book is an ancient call to a pilgrimage process, not walking, but reflecting on a personal journey within.

After I returned home with blistered feet and better questions than answers, I applied her eight central spiritual practices. I reflected mostly on one of her exercises called Creative Contemplative Photography as I browsed through hundreds of my photographs selecting just the right one to see and sense it more deeply.

Lourdes Pilgrimage – May 2015

“The Soul of a Pilgrim’s” spiritual practice exercises, provided at the end of each central practice chapter, are broken down into your own easy-to-do pilgrimage process:

1.    Reflection by John Valters Paintner – along with a story from the Bible.
2.    Invitation to Lectio – read, meditate, pray, contemplate on the story
3.    Writing Exploration through Midrash – ancient Jewish practice of commentary on the story
4.    Midrash explanation – sensing and writing prose or poetry
5.    Creative Exploration through Photography – receive images as gifts not just taking photos
6.    Closing Blessing – your own prayer or one you find elsewhere

One way, out of many ways she provides, teaches you to integrate what you are discovering by:

–    Opening up yourself …
–    Imagining yourself …
–    Seeing the world around you …
–    Getting in touch with you …
–    Hearing the call …

This is a wonderfully inspiring book with more intensity than provided in this write-up. The author invites you to rest into the mystery of an ancient call to pilgrimage.

And you? When will you cultivate your inner self and experience in greater depth the reality that is you?

A Reaffirmed Personal Reality – Discover A Universal Healing Intelligence

June 6, 2013

It’s recently been reported time and time again that many people in the medical field are experiencing a renewed, unique intelligence of energy in their healing profession.

Discovering a universal healing intelligence is something that, for the general public, needs time to be absorbed.

Solomon Speaks Book CoverSolomon Speaks On Reconnecting Your Life is a book about this universal intelligence.  It was written by chiropractor, Dr. Eric Pearl and co-authored by Frederick Ponzlov, actor, acting teacher, director and writer.

The book is filled with a revealing montage of channeled messages delivered through Ponzlov by a loving spirit named Solomon.

These authors provide evidence of these channeled messages spanning many years.

They reveal Solomon’s message about their life’s purpose as bringing light and information to the world.  They were to connect a spiritual heart to a spiritual existence and reconnect to who they are.

Those of us thriving in the metaphysical world understand the beautiful gift that these two friends are blessed with.

It’s a gift that gives life to our knowing and being.

Concept of Hand with Electronic FingerprintsIt’s a realization that we are all one and we can promote healing at the deepest level to ourselves and others.

As the words popped off the page at me, I felt like the messages they shared were my own.  I hung on each word and every message on a very personal level.

Solomon’s gift through the written word gave me renewed insight that might resonant with you.  Here are a few tidbits:

  • Releasing my need for power (ego-driven), allows access to a purer energy form.
  • Open my eyes and reach into my heart – all the answers are there.
  • A cosmic shift in well-being and getting back to who I am is  occurring.
  • My ability to understand the energetic power within myself is waiting to emerge.
  • I should reach for this higher power because it’s always available to me.
  • When I learn to shift my perception, I can rejoice when obstacles occur because they are truly blessings.

The authors remind us that, “If you read this book, you are changing too.”

Meet Solomon through Solomon Speaks and see if you too can discover the unique universal intelligence hidden within the depths of your heart and soul’s purpose.

I send you love, blessings and wishes for a prosperous and abundant life!

How to Reach the State of Nirvana

January 18, 2013

I went into meditation before the sun rose to continue welcoming in a new age of awakening.

I often do this to trim the chatter interfering with my essence; a common problem I have when I let life take me off my path to self-renewal.

MP900444180This time, my meditation was more vibrant with swirling colors of green, yellow, red and purple.

Also showing up was the color white for purity and stars filled the spaces in-between.

It was a peaceful state and one that I didn’t want to leave.  It was nirvana!

How did I manage to get to this state of nirvana?  I went deep within where miracles reside.

I sat silently upon my meditation bench, knees and feet firmly planted on the floor.

I started my meditation by saying a prayer to God and all the archangels asking them for protection and giving them permission to intercede if any negative thoughts and feelings invaded my space.

Tibetan BowlNext, I stroked my Tibetan bowl until a vibrating harmonic frequency filled the room.

This process blesses my sacred space and lets my body know that I am ready to open up and experience the silent peaceful state of nothingness.

Candles flickering on a shelf, lights dimmed and a waterfall splashing in the background, my journey within had begun.

It didn’t take long to reach nirvana, maybe 30 minutes at most.  When I finished, I thanked God and said, “Thy will be done.”

Drenched in solitude, I’m grateful and in love with my experience.

As always, I send you love, blessings and wishes for a prosperous and abundant life!

But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:2


My New Year’s Gift To You – How to Manifest in 2013

December 31, 2012

MP900440954It’s that time again – time to make those New Year’s resolutions.  This year is going to be different.

Why?

Because I’m giving you a gift that keeps on manifesting throughout the year!

In the past, my new year’s resolution was something I made up in my head.  It was usually only one resolution and it was almost always targeting some type of weight loss.

Not this year!  As they say, “been there done that”, or as Dr. Phil says, “how’s that working for ya!”  “Not!”

Instead, I’m going to offer you a process to create your own 2013 sacred journal to manifest what you want in your life – something for your eyes only.

My 2013 Journal

My 2013 Journal

HOW TO MANIFEST YOUR DESIRES

Purchase a journal, any type of journal, lined or not.

At the same time, get yourself some pens, colored pencils and markers.

You are now going to become an artist; maybe not a famous artist, but I know we all have that childhood talent to draw and color.

CREATE SOLID AFFIRMATIONS

Now that you have your journal, sit down and create positive affirmations … things that you want in your life for 2013.

Some affirmation examples might be:
–  I create financial deals and partnerships.
–  I increase my wealth with the help of others.
–  I create new loving relationships.
–  I master my ego and emotions in all my personal relationships.
–  I meet the man/woman of my dreams.

After you create your own personal affirmations, visualize what type of cartoon drawing might go with the affirmation.

For instance, “I increase my wealth with the help of others.”  You might draw several stick people handing you money.  You, a stick person also, have a smile on your face and your hands are reaching out to these beautiful people.

Add a little color to your drawings. What colors make you happy?  Make your stick people purple, red or blue.  Make your money bright green.  Nobody else is going to see this but you, that is, unless you want to share it with others.

My Affirmation Example

My Affirmation Example

Create as many affirmations as you want with a corresponding drawing as you see it manifesting.

Here’s an example of one of my affirmations.  “I am discovering my true life’s purpose.”

Notice that my affirmation states, “I am discovering ….”  It should actually be more direct as if it’s already happened.  It should read, “I discover my true life’s purpose.”

My drawing corresponds to my affirmation and how I see it manifesting.

If I would have used the affirmation “I buy a new car,” my drawing might be a cute caricature of a red mini cooper.

BLESS YOUR JOURNAL AND TUCK IT AWAY

I then bless my sacred journal and tuck it away until the end of 2013.

During the year, I might pull it out and use a little “pillow power” while I sleep to remind me what I want to manifest and to accelerate these manifestations.  I place the journal under my pillow for one night or several nights.

My 2013 journal starts out with a blessed quote for the new year by Martin Luther King:

Glory to God in highest heaven, Who unto man His Son hath given; While angels sing with tender mirth, A glad new year to all the earth.

I also add certain Psalms or other bible verses that support particular affirmations.  I added Psalm 65:11-13 alongside my first affirmation:

You crown the year with Your goodness, And Your paths drip with abundance.  They drop on the pastures of the wilderness, And the little hills rejoice on every side.  The pastures are clothed with flocks; The valleys also are covered with grain; They shout for joy, they also sing.

WHY IS IT A SACRED JOURNAL?

I call this a sacred journal for manifesting because God wants me to have a wonderful life.

When I am asking God for anything, I do it because He wants me to have anything I want so long as it’s for my highest and best.

I don’t get too selfish for material things because material things don’t bring me the love and peace I’m seeking.

I’m yearning for healing of my mind, body and soul to truly manifest material things that support this goal.  All things are in divine order as long as I use the gift of free will He has given me to make the best life choices.

Begin to manifest your best 2013.  Color your world with love, peace, beauty, wisdom and grace and all things will be drawn to you.

Happy New Year!  I continue to send you my love, blessings and wishes for a prosperous and abundant life!
