Change and Transition

Life is all about change and transition. Sometimes, change brings uncertainty and even pain but somehow, someway, the good always shines through. Change becomes our greatest teacher but only if we allow ourselves to learn from it. The lessons that come with change and transition can lead us through all experiences.  As soon as we accept the change we could then make positive transitions that connect us to our higher selves and move us forward. There is a transitional period between when we decide to make a change and when we demonstrate or get what we want. It’s a time to release old habits, learn and practice new ideas and beliefs; essentially we are changing our consciousness to move from fear and doubt [...]

Mastering our Feelings

We have all heard the saying, “It’s not what happens that matters but how we react to what happens”.  We are free to choose how we react and how we feel about the circumstances of each experience.  Yet, so often when something unexpected occurs we respond by reacting too quickly and feeling negative, rather than looking for the good or the lesson in the experience. But by practicing to be more aware of how we react and feel throughout the day will help guide us on our healing journey.  The sooner we realize that we can have a great day every day, the sooner we will move away from chaos and limitations and into feeling more calm and centered.  Our feelings create the [...]

Affirm Your Goal

To “affirm” is to state that something is true. When applied to our spiritual life, an affirmation is a statement of truth which we aspire to absorb into our life; what we believe about our self and our world.  The repetition and corresponding mental images formed when we say affirmations will help to change our subconscious mind. The best times to repeat positive affirmations are when the subconscious mind is most receptive: after waking, immediately before falling asleep, and at the beginning and end of meditation. But we don’t have to wait for an ideal time before practicing positive affirmations, the best time is now! Master Jesus said “Pray believing,” and the same is true of doing an affirmation. Ideally, affirmations should be [...]

Unconditional Love

There are more stories and songs written about love than any other subject; this is probably because it is not only a powerful and life-changing force but the very essence of life. The dictionary defines love as a profoundly tender and deep affection for another person. However, the spiritual aspect of love goes beyond romantic love; it is a state of being; a higher vibrational existence that one radiates regardless of whether anything is offered in return. The simple decision to be kind, forgiving, and compassionate to all in life, including to one’s own self, demonstrates this love. It is unconditional, selfless, and free from fear.  It is what the Greeks referred to as ‘Agape’ or the operation of God’s love in the [...]

Inner Vision Creates

Our ability to develop and maintain clear inner vision of the good we want in our life leads to the manifestation of that good.  One of the great lessons in life is that the ultimate measure of a person is not where he or she stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he or she stands in moments of challenge. Some people choose to respond by seeking to transform the problem into an opportunity while others may choose not to. Our outlook on life mirrors our inner vision of what we believe about ourselves and about life. When we choose to see the love in life, and when we know that life supports us, we can transform a liability into an [...]

Embracing Change

In tribute to Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, let us recall some inspiring ideas he shared with the world. He said that unconditional love must be our power in the struggle for justice and peace. It is indeed the most powerful force in all of life’s struggles. And love begins at home. Before we can love and care for another adequately, we must first learn to love and care for ourselves properly. He explained the deeper meaning of love, or Agape, the strength to love, and the power of non-violent resistance, which still inspires oppressed peoples all over the world today. He believed that all life is interrelated and that we are all brothers and sisters of a common father. He believed [...]

A New Beginning

The beginning of every New Year brings with it the opportunity for a fresh start. It brings the optimism that starting over is possible, and the belief that new beginnings can create new and successful outcomes.  The New Year stands before us like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write the story by setting goals, which give us a sense of direction. Our goals put a powerful force into play on all levels; universal, conscious and subconscious. Begin by asking yourself, what would I like to achieve in life this coming year?  What would I like to do or accomplish?  And what good would I like to attract into my life? Although you may not know how [...]

The Joy of Giving and Receiving

Giving and receiving are spiritual aspects that create harmony in our lives.  Giving opens the way for receiving.  When we allow ourselves to receive, we give the gift of giving. One of the most significant gifts we can give comes from our hearts. The best gifts are not necessarily material things; when we give our time and come from a place of love and support, we give healing gifts which create more joy in our world. When we practice giving and receiving consciously and spiritually, we contribute to the harmonious circle of life. The holidays are a time when we celebrate joy together and share our love with family and friends. It’s also a time when we reach out to those in need.  Kindness, [...]

The Feeling of Gratitude

The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on all our blessings and what we are thankful for.  But Thanksgiving and Christmas are not the only times of the year to count our blessings. Finding gratitude and appreciating the small things in life everyday will positively impact our day-to-day life. Giving and receiving are spiritual practices that naturally create a positive flow of energy.  When we think about it each day we receive the gifts of life and as we give thanks for the gifts, our mood improves and the gratitude effectively boosts our happiness and well-being. Our ability to have and express gratitude in our daily life opens our mind, body and spirit to an abundant life. So let’s have an [...]

The Choice is Yours

Life is built upon choices and decisions.  Who we are today is a result of our choices and decisions made in the past. We may not be able to control everything, but we can control how we choose to react to situations and how we handle them. We have free will and we can choose how we see through each situation. Make the choices that will make your soul sing and sustain a happy life. The ideal way to make decisions is from a place of intuition and inner peace. Allow that gut feeling deep within to guide you. Get in touch with your inner guidance which is the wisdom that knows the best direction for you. It’s not always easy to listen to [...]
