FEAR NOT WHO YOU ARE


Spring Nature. Beautiful Landscape. Green Grass and Trees

 Your Daily Blessing

Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we’re so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act.
– Ram Dass

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. – Joseph Campbell

destiny

 Your Daily Blessing

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.
– Wayne W. Dyer

When you can accept yourself exactly as you are and accept others exactly as they are you will finally have peace.

If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.
–  Deepak Chopra

If the universe has given you the passion to want to do something, then be 100% assured it will give you the ability as well.

You do know you can live your life the way you want to.



FEAR OR THE MOMENT?

fear

Your Daily Blessing

Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.

– Thich Nhat Hanh

Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.

– Sai Baba

Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences.
-Eckhart Tolle

 
Change your life today. Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay.

YOU ARE THE JEWEL YOU SEEK

Your Daily Blessing

Each one of us just wants to be noticed and loved and accepted exactly as is — not changed or made different.
– Louise Hay

If I want to be accepted as I am, then I need to be willing to accept others as they are.  It is arrogant to set standards for others.
– Louise Hay

Your ego tries to keep you from becoming who you really are.

Today…remember…it is all in your mind.

Wake up and stop falling prey to the conditioning of the media and society around you.  It’s only those people who are awake that live in a state of constant amazement.




Your Daily Blessing

Cease to inquire what the future has in store, and to take as a gift whatever the day brings forth.
– Horace
We all live in suspense, from day to day, from hour to hour; in other words we are the hero of our own story.

The more I have, for both are infinite.

- Alain de Batton

A man's character is his fate.
- Heraclitus

People attain worth and dignity by the multitude of decisions they make from day to day.
- Rollo May

Hiding how much of a mess you feel is exhausting. Recognize you are doing this, and channel that energy into being mindful of your problems instead.

Those times of depression tell you that it's either time to get out of the story you're in and move into a new story, or that you're in the right story but there's some piece of it you are not living out.
- Carol S. Pearson

WHAT ARE YOU DOING!

worry

 Your Daily Blessing

Worry is a misuse of imagination.
– Dan Zadra
Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind.  If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.
– Arthur Somers Roche
We’ll weather the weather,
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not.
– John Ruskin

Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere.

Did you put off doing something yesterday?  Did you say yesterday that you were going to do it today?  How many days, months, or even years have you said you will do it tomorrow?  That’s the “tomorrow trap” that most never get out of.  They actually make themselves feel better by fooling themselves and making themselves believe they will do it tomorrow.  But they won’t.





MAKE THE BEST ADJUSTMENTS


star burst illustration


Your Daily Blessing

The solution to our mood problems may not require heroic attempts to change our inner feeling world or the outer world of other people, places and jobs.  Rather, it may simply involve a shift in the way we pay attention to all of them.
– Mark Williams

Try dying every day to your old self… So that you emerge renewed and young again as the tired mind sheds its load.
– Kristin Zambucka

People have a hard time letting go of their suffering.  Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.
– Thich Nhat Hanh

Our suffering stems from ignorance.  We react because we do not know what we are doing, because we do not know the reality of ourselves.
– S.N. Goenka

You can make this new year anything you want it to be. 



INNER GREATNESS


Colorful space star nebula background


Your Daily Blessing

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

– Dalai Lama

Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love.  We melt into another world, a realm of power within us.  The world changes when we change.  The world softens when we soften.  The world loves us when we choose to love the world.
– Marianne Williamson

When what you feel on the inside surpasses what you see on the outside miracles will happen.

When you admire something in someone you are seeing a reflection of yourself.

 

In the light of trust, as it develops slowly over time, you will find that you are a privileged child of the universe, entirely safe, entirely supported, entirely loved.
– Deepak Chopra

 


NO MORE EXCUSES

possible

Your Daily Blessing

It is your turn to decide.

The day you decide you are more interested in being aware of your thoughts than you are in the thoughts themselves – that is the day you will find your way out.
– Michael Singer

You have that desire because the universe also wants you to have what you desire. You will not have a desire without also having the means to make it come true.

You didn’t come into this world to fail.  You came here for a reason and nothing can stop that from happening.

Again, don’t make excuses today.




POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER BEFORE AND AFTER BEING A SOLDIER


ME2

AKRON BEACON JOURNAL SHARED WHAT THEY SAW OF MY LIFE

Soldier front cover

I am from Akron, Ohio.  Our local town newspaper is the Akron Beacon Journal.  I am proud to say they accepted my book for review.  What they shared about my book was shocking because no where was spirituality shared.  This allowed the raw and real realities of my life to be shared.  I appreciate the Akron Beacon journal for sharing what the world the truth about the ugliness of being victimized early in life.  PTSD is a reality that does not have to be a life-sentence.  I am a living witness, life can and will be grand when you understand your total being.  Soldier With A Backpack Living And Dying Simultaneously is a tool to enlightenment when you are ready.

‘Soldier with a Backpack’

Linda Diane Wattley didn’t see armed conflict when she served in the U.S. Army after graduating from South High School, but she had seen enough in her life before her enlistment to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. She tells her story in Soldier with a Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously.

Wattley recalls being about 4 years old the first time her father raped her. Her parents got into physical battles, and her father took up with a woman who also fought with him, once pouring boiling water on him. Wattley and her brothers were shoved back and forth between the two women; her mother had turned to drinking. There were two devastating deaths in a brief time.

Wattley turned to sex and marijuana while in the Army, which she called a “permanent party.” She was dating a man who she describes as controlling and aggressive; another man who had been friendly with her said “You know you don’t have to take that.” She took his counsel and left her boyfriend, later marrying the better man. They had a happy marriage and two sons, but the heartache was not over.

She began researching PTSD after her son’s return from two tours in Iraq. Despite her father’s actions, she says “our relationship was solid;” she shows forgiveness for other family members who have broken her trust and injured her.

Soldier with a Backpack (161 pages, softcover) costs $15 from online retailers.

 


you

Your Daily Blessing
Realize that now, in this moment of time, you are creating. You are creating your next moment based on what you are feeling and thinking. That is what’s real. 
– Doc Childre

All your troubles are a fight with your own mind.

All there really is… is now.

To end the misery that has afflicted the human condition for thousands of years, you have to start with yourself and take responsibility for you inner state at any given moment. That means now.
– Eckhart Tollee

What path are you on right now? Are you making a difference?

 


MAKE HAPPY A DAILY GOAL


happy

 

Your Daily Blessing

 

The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.
– Eckhart Tolle

Happiness comes from within. It is not dependent on external things or on other people. You become vulnerable and can be easily hurt when your feelings of security and happiness depend on the behavior and actions of other people. Never give your power to anyone else.
– Brian L. Weiss

Whatever happens around you, don’t take it personally… Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves.
– Miguel Ruiz

If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.  The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.
– Deepak Chopra

You are ready for a change. Just start. Do something to start the change. Don’t worry about if you are making a correct decision.  It doesn’t have to be a correct decision. Once you take the initial step (right or wrong) you will be guided. The correct decisions will come to you. But not until you take that first step. Just start.


LIFE IS CHANGING

change

 

Your Daily Blessing

 

Quite often we are just so certain that we know something but we are just plain wrong.  There are moments when we discover things that completely turn our world around and forever change our lives. And the great thing is once we discover them we can never go back.

Start with something so simple as not to seem worth stating, and to end with something so paradoxical that no one will believe it.
– Bertrand Russell

I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention. To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself. To cut yourself out of stone.
– Henry Rollins

Do not let anyone tell you that you can’t do it.

You can change your life in a split second.  If you really wanted to you could do it right now.



LET GO AND LET….


surrender

 

Your Daily Blessing

 

When we know love matters more than anything, and we know that nothing else REALLY matters, we move into the state of surrender. Surrender does not diminish our power, it enhances it.
-Sara Paddison

Surrender is faith that the power of Love can accomplish anything even when you cannot forsee the outcome.
– Deepak Chopra

Give up all bad qualities in you, banish the ego and develop the spirit of surrender. You will then experience Bliss.


– Sri Sathya Sai Baba


The greatness of a mans power is the measure of his surrender.


– William Booth

The word “surrender” is often interpreted as giving up, as weakness, as admitting defeat. Although this is one way to use the word, we will use it in a different way. Surrendering means letting go of your resistance to the total openness of who you are. It means giving up the tension of the little vortex you believe yourself to be and realizing the deep power of the ocean you truly are. It means to open with no boundaries, emotional or physical, so you ease wide beyond any limiting sense of self you might have.


– David Deida





WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?


Cosmic energy glowing light space light abstract background

Your Daily Blessing

Don’t make excuses today.

Don’t ever look at things now and think your life can’t change. Change can come in one single moment.

Freedom means you are unobstructed in living your life as you choose. Anything less is a form of slavery.
– Wayne Dyer

We do so many things that are wasteful and unnecessary, just because that is the way society says it is.

Again, don’t make excuses today.


CHOOSE BEST

Gratitude

Your Daily Blessing

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.
– William Arthur Ward

You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.
– Louise L. Hay

Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.
– Wayne Dyer

Never let go of hope. One day you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be.

Sometimes you just need a little help.

The new year is almost here.  Make this next year the year it happens for you.  There is absolutely no reason you can’t.



WHAT DO YOU DESERVE?

grass

We tend to be so consumed in our everyday routines of life that we forget our own self-value.
Days appear to be going by now at a faster pace than usual. It is as though we do not have enough hours in a day to accomplish all we desire. Because of this apparent push in time, we neglect to consider whether we are experiencing and receiving what we know we deserve in life from ourselves, others and life itself.
It is time to come to a screeching halt with all that prevents us from dealing with our own self-worth. We all are short-changing ourselves about something in life we know we deserve.
What do you really deserve?
Do you deserve to spend the remainder of your life in the state you are presently in?
If so, you must be a person who has taken time out to evaluate your life from time to time. But for those who are not in the state they deserve to be in, you must slow down and invest quality time in your search to find just what you deserve.
It is possible to have what we honestly feel we deserve in life if we choose not to accept that which we do not deserve. We all reap what we sow. However, once we do, we have the opportunity to sow once again that which we would like to reap in the future.
As we evaluate our lives and all the situations, positions, relationships and economic standings we are in, we must come to realize what must be changed or terminated so we can begin to experience and receive what we would like to reap in the future.
This is not an easy move. It is not something we jump into quickly in the physical sense. It is something we begin to give thought to on a regular basis, both mentally and emotionally. It was attention and constant action on our part that has placed us in the state we are in today. Therefore, we must do the same thing to move out of our undesired states into our heartfelt deserving states.
Each one of us deserves the best life has to offer. God did not speak us into existence only to have us settle for less. We must acknowledge our own true worth as a child of God and put away the limited thoughts of second-hand choices in every area of our lives.
It takes one step at a time, beginning with sincere desire, contemplated thought and commitment. You can have what you deserve only when you choose to stop settling for less than the best. Trust God; raise your thought about yourself so the seeds of greatness may begin to grow.




Your Daily Blessing

The only thing holding you back is yourself.

Do not react to your feelings… create with them.

Learn from the things that irritate and aggravate you the most.  They are there for a reason.

I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention. To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself. To cut yourself out of stone.
– Henry Rollins

You may be surprised at how many good things or people you have let slip through your life because you chose to see things in a negative way.

wake-up-hi

espace 2

Your Daily Blessing

Go out of your way to experience something new today.

You haven’t achieved what you want in life because a part of you doesn’t want to let go of where you are now.

Speak to the universe.  Tell it what you want.  You may be pleasantly surprised.

Don’t be afraid to become what you were meant to be.

Don’t ever for the slightest moment think you don’t deserve to be happy and get everything you have ever wanted.


BE YOUR BEST SELF


Waterfall in Hawaii

Your Daily Blessing

It is time for you to be awake.  It is time for you to know what you are doing.

Accept this moment.  Allow it to happen.

Most people only see what they want to see.  Allow yourself to see it all.

Go beyond your conditioned mind.

Allow yourself to feel any way you want right now.



SOLDIER WITH A BACKPACK LIVING AND DYING SIMULTANEOUSLY IS GOD-WILLED

god

Today I just want to give a special thanks to God, and every soul who has read my book so far. I thank God for “Soldier With A Backpack Living And Dying Simultaneously”. Today, I received an e-mail I cannot keep to myself because this man, Doug, read my book and had this to say:
Hallelujah!

Ms. Linda I received your book Friday I have to admit I haven’t read a good book in a long time I guess the last one I read was by Brother T.D. Jakes I spend most of my time studying Labor Books.

When I started reading yours I couldn’t put it down one minute I had tears in my eyes and the next minute I was so uplifted I was praising God you know it’s a blessing from God when at first your heart is broken and the next you are uplifted. What a blessing you are especially when they read your book they will be blessed as I was, it made me stop and question my walk in faith with the Lord and you were exactly right love is the Key. 

Everyone needs to put hate out of their lives and fill it with the Joy of Love that can only come from having a relationship with God. I especially enjoyed the part when you talked about being filled with the Holy Spirit and being slain in the Spirit, I am A Spirit filled Christian and sometimes it is so hard to explain that to others because they just don’t believe. Praise God for using you as his instrument not only to spread his word but to make people understand that PSTD is real and it is a fight that goes on in individuals we encounter every day and by showing individuals love and a kind word can make a world of difference in people’s live.

It will be a honor for me to write a review for your book if you tell me where I need to go to write it, in fact my wife was so intrigued with me not putting the book down she has started reading it.

Thank you

Doug



LOVE WILL NOT BE DENIED


We are facing a world crisis that will continue to grow as long as we deny the power of love.  The lack of love breeds a ground for war.  Where there is war, we find desperation.  Each soul is born to bear love.  No love means no life.  The world is a cancerous monster right now denying love.  There is no way we can move forward and have hope for the future for our children if we do not face this epidemic.

What has happened to Paris is a reality check for mankind to seek a better way to exist.  God and Love are one and the same vibration.  The lack of it in any individual soul is creating a future of extinction.  We must ask ourselves why we have so much trust in the world’s knowledge when it is contrary to love and togetherness.  Our soldiers go to war, return home to a war they can not win because they would go to jail and to hell for defending themselves against selfish and greedy people.  They walk on land filled with hatred and self-righteousness.  There has to be individual change if we want hope in America.

Love is possible once people realize it is okay to love without loosing.  You love by allowing God to sit in your heart.  You deny the things of the world that keeps you uptight and selfish.  For sure, Paris is experiencing PTSD just as we are here in America simply because sudden trauma has visited their land.  Rape, murder, molestation, abuse, attack of any kind and natural disasters go on daily making our land a place of fear and desperation.

If we do not personally allow God to be the heart of our lives, love is denied resulting in a continued war zone.  Today let go of the world and allowed God to restore your heart and if He does not need to restore your heart, allow God to increase your love flow for the sake of your fellowman.  I am not asking you to be a fool, I am only asking you to be love and trust God to protect and guide you through this life time.  LOVE WILL NOT BE DENIED.

 

love can heal



STOP BLOCKING THE LIGHT

Your Daily Blessing

Those who think that the world is a dark place are blind to the light that might illuminate their lives.
– Wayne Dyer

As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others. – Marianne Williamson

Happiness comes from within. It is not dependent on external things or on other people. You become vulnerable and can be easily hurt when your feelings of security and happiness depend on the behavior and actions of other people. Never give your power to anyone else.
– Brian L. Weiss

Stop seeing the world as something already set, something fixed and immutable.  Stop believing the world can only be changed by physical action.  Picture your world as a dream that can be changed by thought and emotion



GRATITUDE IS THE BEST ATTITUDE

quotation-gratitude-1

Your Daily Blessing

Most have never taken the time to evaluate their beliefs.  Can you honestly say you know why you believe what you believe?

Most have convinced themselves it is not possible so they don’t have to put forth the effort to try.

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.
– Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Keep gratitude in your heart and it will shield you from the problems of the world.

LIVE YOUR PURPOSE


pur

When you wake up in the morning, you should be helping God wake you up because you have a strong desire to get on with your day.  Purpose is the acceptance of being in the world but not of it.  You trust God with your life, you listen to guidance.  The world does not seem as noisy anymore.

Purpose creates an awesome center for you to exist in, and in that circle is a brilliant light giving you a peace the world can not give.  It gives you a healthy obsession to act on a strong desire for good.  When we are centered, stress becomes lessen because we are not pulled from every possible direction of doing.  We let go of unnecessary activities, conversations, people and we seek to make our selves more available for results.

Our purpose can change over the years preparing us for greater purposes of sacrifice.  Not that the purpose is grander in contents as it is in size.  There is no greater purpose than being a parent especially when you maximize the opportunity to equip children to be great individuals.  Then, there could still be existing purpose for you where all you have learned while parenting is adsorbed to strengthen you to bless the world.  Soldiers know the sacrifices of purpose and move forward as though it is not happening.

Focus in on your heartfelt desire and conduct your self as this is the day it owns you.  Great things happen when you consciously live in your divine purpose.

background of space with stars

Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we’re so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act.
– Ram Dass

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. – Joseph Campbell

Surely, life is not merely a job, an occupation; life is something extraordinarily wide and profound, it is a great mystery, a vast realm in which we function as human beings.
– Jiddu Krishnamurti

Don’t be afraid to become what you were meant to be.

The lust for comfort murders the passions of the soul.
– Kahlil Gibran



DO NOT BE YOUR OWN ENEMY


self love

Pay attention to your daily thoughts.  Pay attention to what your thoughts are saying about you.  They can be downright mean and cruel.  You judge yourself and put yourself down.  You would never treat another person that way.  So why are you doing it to yourself?

You have chosen how you are feeling right now.

The point of power is always in the present moment.
– Louise L. Hay

When you start to believe it things will start happening.


TODAY IS ABOUT GOD IN YOU


lit

My mother-in-law always told me in order to reach the top in life, someone must see good in you.  Your good can be shared with the world when the right person reaches out and take your hand.  When this happens, you know God was instrumental in making  the encounter possible.

Whatever is for you in life will come to you.  Just make sure you are prepared to receive it.  Each one of us have something uniquely special to give to others.  There are people waiting for your good to be shared with them.  Whatever you have going on inside of you prompting you do or say something, you should do it because what you have is needed in someone’s life to help them reach a better state of being.

Be your best self at all times knowing you are drawing more good into your life and the lives of others.  Let your unique light so shine that others may see God in you.

You are a very important presence no matter how much time has been spent ignoring this reality. You are given a new day to acknowledge the God in you and share it with the world.  There is no greater purpose.  Don’t you see it?


BE THE CHANGE YOU SEEK

Your Daily Blessing

night sky

All transformation begins with an intense, burning desire to be transformed. The first step in the”renewing of the mind” is desire. You must want to be different (and intend to be) before you can begin to change yourself. Then you must make your future dream a present fact.  You do this by assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled. By desiring to be other than what you are, you can create an ideal of the person you want to be and assume that you are already that person . If this assumption is persisted n until it becomes your dominant feeling, the attainment of your ideal is inevitable.
– Neville Goddard



IT IS YOU, IT IS YOU

Your Daily Blessing

Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.
– Joseph Campbell
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
– C.G. Jung
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
– Khalil Gibran
Today expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday. Realize the past no longer holds you captive. It can only continue to hurt you if you hold on to it. Let the past go. A simply abundant world awaits.
– Sarah Ban Breathnach

Decide what you want.  Begin taking steps to get what you want.  Just do something, anything you think will lead in the direction of what you want.  It doesn’t matter if it is a correct step or not.  Once the universe sees you have taken the initiative it will then step in and start guiding your steps and take care of the “how” for you.


THE PAST IS NOT TODAY


Your Daily Blessing


Go back to the state you had as a child when you believed nothing was impossible.

Quiet the mind, and the soul will speak. 
- Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati

When someone criticizes you it is because of their own fear and insecurity.

Each of us inevitable; Each of us limitless - each of us with his or her right upon the earth; Each of us allowed the eternal purports of the earth; Each of us here as divinely as any is here.
- Walt Whitman

You are struggling with yourself. It is a fight with your own mind.  Stop the resistance.  You can't resist something that has already happened in the past.  You can't resist something that may or may not happen in the future.  It's all just a big waste of time and energy.
 



INSANE MEANS DOING THE SAME THING EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT


universe

Your Daily Blessing

Do not react to your feelings… create with them.

Once you truly make up your mind to do something the universe instantly sets things in motion to help you.

You may be surprised at how many good things or people you have let slip through your life because you chose to see things in a negative way.

The universe will give you signs to point you in the right direction. Look for them.

When you get what you want you will look back and see that the only thing that kept you from getting it was something small you were overlooking. You will wonder why in the world it took you so long to see it.


CHOOSE – MAKE UP YOUR MIND


im3

Your Daily Blessing

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.
– Wayne W. Dyer

When you can accept yourself exactly as you are and accept others exactly as they are you will finally have peace.

If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.
–  Deepak Chopra

If the universe has given you the passion to want to do something, then be 100% assured it will give you the ability as well.choose


WAKE UP AND SEE YOU


wake-up-hi

Your Daily Blessing

It is time for you to be awake.  It is time for you to know what you are doing.

Accept this moment.  Allow it to happen.

Most people only see what they want to see.  Allow yourself to see it all.

Go beyond your conditioned mind.

Allow yourself to feel any way you want right now.


CAN YOU DO THIS?


Someone shared this with me and I really liked it because I kind of believe this is how life works.  It could be possible.

 

The Secret To Getting Anything You Want Is Admitting You Don’t Know How You Are Going To Get It.

Just decide what you want.
Admit you don’t know how you are going to get it.
So detach and turn it over to the universe and let your higher self attract it for you.
Your higher self wants it for you just as much as you do or you wouldn’t have the desire.
Stop making things so complicated.  It doesn’t have to be.
Change how you view how you get things.

Although everything points to the contrary it all comes from within you.  The illusion is that it seems like it is coming from the physical things you do.  The physical is secondary.  The physical brings about what the internal has already decided is going to happen.
It has nothing to do with how much work you do or even if what you are doing is correct.  It only depends on what is going on inside you.

Again don’t make it hard.  Just decide what you want, admit you don’t know how you are going to get it, and turn it over to your higher self.

You will be amazed.  We can’t over emphasize this…  you are doing it the hard

Let Go let god



self

Today we are going to slow down and see how important we are to our self.  We need our self to learn, grow and love.  What is needed by everyone is space to see.  When our lives are filled with clutter of things, people and activity, we cannot see the forest for the trees.  Facing the world today, we are going to set everyone free to be just who and what he or she may be.  Let the God they serve give them what they deserve.  No longer are our views of what seems best for others are going to control our actions if we see early on it does not make a difference.  It comes a time when becoming less because we’re reaching for others is not acceptable.  Instead, we are going to keep the strong strong by respecting, acknowledging, nurturing and blessing them in unique ways revealed by our hearts.
No longer are we going to drag the weak  because usually the weak are selfish and use our compassion as a means of obtaining what they are capable of getting for themselves.  We are gong to love them with a trusting love that their God will see them through.  Like us who have experienced pain and suffering of some kind and had to move forward so it is with our loved ones.  They must feel the pain to grow if we keep giving them band aids they will never mature or become strong enough to come out of needy mode.
Our love will be the right love where we know for a fact things do get better with or without our two cents.  Save those two cents for positive things that are flourishing.
Love confidently!  Love your self enough to say no sometimes and yes when it is fruitful. We all have a journey even our loved ones.

 


STOP MAKING YOUR LIFE COMPLICATED

Your Daily Blessing

Nothing has power over you unless you allow it.

The measure of your life will not be in what you accumulate, but in what you give away.
– Wayne Dyer

Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we’re so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act.
– Ram Dass

If you think your life is about DOINGNESS, you do not understand what you are about. Your soul doesn’t care what you do for a living-and when your life is over, neither will you. Your soul cares only about what you’re BEING while you’re doing whatever you’re doing. It is a state of BEINGNESS the soul is after, not a state of doingness.
– Neale Donald Walsch

Understand what you want is already there.  You just have to let the energy flow to you.


LET LOVE BEGIN WITH YOU

The purpose of relationship is not to have another who might complete you, but to have another with whom you might share your completeness.

Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.
– Deepak Chopra

It is love alone that leads to right action. What brings order in the world is to love and let love do what it will.
– Jiddu Krishnamurti

Stop struggling.  Just do what you need to do.  Turn it over to the universe and stop worrying about it.


ANGER NEEDS YOUR BODY


fractal_angerIf you’re mad about something and you’re not going to take it anymore, you’re feeling anger, a strong emotion you experience when you think someone has done you wrong. If you want to scream and kick, you’re feeling anger.

Anger is a powerful emotion that people feel from time to time when someone or something frustrates or annoys them. One of the roots of anger is the Greek word ankhone for “a strangling,” which is a perfect description of the way anger actually feels. Indeed, anger can make you feel like strangling someone. Don’t do it! If you’re feeling a lot of anger, it’s good to take a nice, deep breath.

Now that we have had an icebreaker to what is anger let’s explore it.  First of all anger thrives on the ego.  Without our ego, anger could not control us.  I liked the idea of anger feeling like it strangles our insides to the point we would do anything to rid ourselves of it but let’s see how it got to this point.  First of all we do not want to admit how powerful this invisible energy or vibration actually is.  And, we do not want to admit how frightening this thing is yeah it’s a thing in some ways let me show you how.

First of all, anger could not exist without a body nor do any damage or harm.  So, what exactly is it?  We actually do not know but the experience is something very powerful inside of us.  It is privately happening to you and oftentimes people do not know to what degree until it take complete control of our bodies.  What is it that is strangling us on the inside feeling like a ridged roughness to our nervous system?  It is like an electrical tornado moving through the whole form of our bodies.  We embrace ourselves in hopes it would subside.  But at times, it does not subside and that’s when it becomes scary.  In split seconds, in perfect timing when it convinces the ego to unleash it, we do it without the opportunity to stop it from no longer staying inside of us instead it causes the body to release its rage in the space we stand and breathe in. Continue by going here…

 


YOUR UNIQUE SELF MAKES YOU ALRIGHT


ok

Your Daily Blessing

You must realize that you are now only a heap of conventions, habits, what society has made of you. Once all these have left you, you realize that they were defenses and aggressions accumulated solely to maintain the ego.
– Jean Klein

You were never greater than you are right now, nor will you ever be. Your worth is already complete and never changes, only your relationship to it evolves.
– Michael Tamura

To live a life you were not meant, is to create confusion within yourself. This confusion you are feeling will only manifest itself negatively into your physical world. You are here for a reason. You are here to provide a gift to this world. Until you present your true self to the world. Your present to the world will go unopened.

When your mind starts telling you what you have to do to make everything okay, don’t buy into what it’s telling you. The truth is, everything will be okay as soon as you are okay with everything. And that’s the only time everything will be okay.
– Michael A. Singer

You are an incredible artist.  Create an amazing day today.


GIVE YOUR SELF TIME


Your Daily Blessing

The only thing holding you back is yourself.

Do not react to your feelings… create with them.

Learn from the things that irritate and aggravate you the most.  They are there for a reason.

I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention. To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself. To cut yourself out of stone.
– Henry Rollins

You may be surprised at how many good things or people you have let slip through your life because you chose to see things in a negative way.

THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE


sun

 

I am a firm believer “The Truth Will Set Free”. Any truth is going to send you on a path to make better choices.

My first real experience of how powerful truth is was when I looked up to the sky and asked God to not take my husband, His first and immediate answer was: “Pray for something else, I already have”.

God told me the truth with no mercy. Walking briskly in heartbroken pain heading to the emergency room, I stopped and sat down on the bench. Something came into me and made it clear this is the truth of my life now, my husband is gone it time for a new walk with my children.

If I can accept the truth from God in the midst of my broken heart and begin to step in the best direction I can, then I must know any truth is to my benefit.

The truth will set you free if you let it.


THIS MAN TELLS THE TRUTH ABOUT POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER


MORRIS

This Man Tells the Truth about PTSD

When I knew I had a truth about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, I wanted a solid confirmation of it.  David Morris’ book “The Evil Hours” is the encyclopedia, Medical Manual and Spiritual Source of Truth in one book.  This man wrote this book with a vengeance and  he took no prisoners.

I am a firm believer to give credit where credit is due.  I take my hat off to David.  He has a very powerful heart and determination to bring understanding and facts about PTSD.  With his personal experiences and his comrades’ take on the journey makes it quite a great experience to read his findings.

If you want a degree in knowing this disorder, his book will give it to you.  I was so thankful it found its way into my life.  Like my book, “Soldier With A Backpack Living and Dying Simultaneously”, we share our take on PTSD because we care about our fellowman.  We can be at a better place when we know somebody besides yourself gets it.  I get it, Dave get and we want anyone who deserves and wants victory over drifting through life feeling less than you have to feel.  If a person can survive with life’s traumas then it is possible for you to be that person as well.

What we allow is some privacy as you experience enlightenment to reconstruct your soul.  Here it is male and female offering you a treasured new beginning.  Let’s do this.

MICRO VS MACRO


Bambi-vs-Godzilla-on-Bad-Language-w480-h480_thumb

Keep It Simple

When we  take a real look at life, we must admit the journey is quite overwhelming.  Just when you think you have figured it out, something happens and rocks your world.  The key is to see the whole picture.  You are a micro in a macro world. We don’t think about it we just walk into it like it is normal to be infested with negativity and detachment.

Look at yourself, you are just a single unit of existence.  You are free to bask in this state of being at home but once you walk out the door of your house, your single unit is forced into the macro existence of millions of micros forcing a chaotic and loveless macro that is usually very harsh and selfish.

You get in your car and head to work.  You notice many micros looking very numb and unhappy.  How are you looking to others today?  Are you contributing to the massive heartless macro or are you able to separate yourself from the energy field it possess by smiling and counting your blessings?

The macro does not have to push you around and put you in survival and victim mode if you empower your micro to be here but not here based on what is permeating from your being.  You must make your home heaven on earth.  It has to be the place where you regenerate positive vibrations within your being.  Your environment has to be vibrating a high frequency of good, love, peace, strength, freedom and acceptance of self.

When you make this a priority, you can step out into the macro and not be killed mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  You can also be a contributor to the mini micros who are establishing a base of positive vibrations to exist in a better state of being.  This is a lifestyle with great rewards.  Establishing a self-nurturing base for your self gives you power that grows and become a light in a dark world.

Save your self and love doing it.  It is a beautiful journey.  When you do this, the macro has to back off and emerge with its own kind.


THE MIND CAN BE A GOLD OR DEATH MINE

Your Daily Blessing

Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive  and express what we really are.
– Miguel Angel Ruiz

Plant seeds of happiness, hope, success, and love; it will all come back to you in abundance. This is the law of nature.
– Steve Maraboli

Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviors. Keep your behaviors positive because your behaviors become your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.
– Gandhi

Live authentically. Live your truth. And if you love me for anything, love me because I live mine.

OWN AND MAINTAIN YOUR BACKPACK

Your Daily Blessing

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
– Albert Einstein

Decide you are going to accept responsibility for everything that happens in your life and watch how fast things change for the better.

Stop struggling. Decide what you want and then just turn it over to the universe and keep gratitude in your heart. Amazing things will happen.

If you are feeling impatient, some discomfort, restlessness… That is good. A good change is about to come.

There are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely – or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands.  You have that moment now.  Choose.
– Oscar Wilde


WHEN THE STUDENT IS READY THE TEACHER WILL APPEAR

 

Soldier front cover

One day I was relaxing and enjoying my peaceful state of mind.  I was so thankful my son was able to share with me his struggle with PTSD.  The more I recalled his experience the more I saw mines from early in life childhood experiences.  It felt great to conduct understanding and soulful vibrations with this reality.  One thing for sure there is far more going on inside of us than outside of us.  I found a peace when I was beginning to realize the more you understand what is being said inside of you, the less overwhelming the outside experience began to be.

What I offer today is a gift to mankind.  I know it is impacting and life changing for anybody knowing we need a better way to be.  It is no doubt in my mind there are people who have been waiting for what I  have to say.  They are feeling  what I have written but can’t quite put it into words.  I can do that and I do it eagerly and with confidence.

God expected a lot of me between those pages so I know he has a list of people who will be blessed by this message.  I look forward to silently and inwardly connecting together with my fellow man as we weave an invisible quilt of spiritual renewal.  Together we can reestablish our ground and create an amazing presence in this world one person at a time.

 


A SON SHARES HIS FATHER’S EXPERIENCE WITH CANCER


What is your attitude about life?

Attitude is one of the biggest factors that determine how we live our lives.

Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t you are correct.”

Our attitudes can turn what appear to be misfortunes into blessings.

Our attitudes can even save our lives.

I want to share with you a lesson I learned from my dad.

My dad lost his fight with cancer a little over a year ago.

What most didn’t know is that when he was first diagnosed he was given at most three years to live.

He turned three years into THIRTEEN.

The biggest reason was his attitude.

As a side note I hate when doctors give you a time limit on your life.  Most people take this as fact and end up living just about as long as the doctor gives them.

Doctors are human.  I’ve spent a lot of time with doctors outside the medical environment, “in real life”, playing cards or stuff like that.

There are times when I have thought, “This guy is a doctor?  Really?  How did he pull that off?  That is scary.”

Don’t get me wrong.  We have a lot of great doctors.  A lot.  I’m just saying doctors are not perfect.

So how did my dad’s attitude extend his life?  Was it just his positive thoughts that kept him alive?  Of course not.

He still sought out medical treatments and kept up with the latest developments, including a lot of trials.

He even still had moments where his emotions got the best of him. But for the most part he accepted his present situation, but knew he could do things to make it better.

It was like okay here is where we are, what do we need to do to get to there?

And many, many times over I saw him get to “there”.

There never was any, “My life is terrible.  Why did this have to happen to me?”

I never saw any constant complaining or self-pity because he knew if he started down that road he was giving himself a death sentence.

Most people like to complain.  It actually gives them a little relief from their life while they are doing it.

But constant complaining is like a drug.  It may make you feel better at the time but it is doing harm in the long run and the longer you do it the more harm it is going to do to you.

By not constantly complaining and taking control of his life and having an incredible attitude my dad added many healthy years to his life.  In fact you wouldn’t have even known he had cancer until the last year.

Do you think a numerology reading can give you insight to your health?  I know it can!healing


PARENT YOUR FEELINGS

Your Daily Blessing

Do not react to your feelings… create with them.

Don’t ask what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive and go do it.  Because what the world needs is people to come alive.
– Howard Thurman

Instead of thinking it will be hard.  Start thinking it will be easy.  Try it.  You might be surprised.

You know what you need to do. Don’t let the fear of the unknown stop you.

Once you truly make up your mind to do something the universe instantly sets things in motion to help you.


Love is Maturity


Nice sunset over mountains

 

Your Daily Blessing

If you are worried or thinking negative thoughts, switch your thoughts right now.  Think of something you like.  Do it right now.  There is no reason you can’t.

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one.  Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own.  It’s just a matter of paying attention to the miracle.
– Paulo Coelho

Everyone needs help and everyone can help someone.  This world would be a completely different place if everyone just helped one person.

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
– Mother Teresa

You will become the picture you hold of yourself in your mind.


LOVE CAN NOT BE REPLACED


love

Your Daily Blessing

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
– Leo F. Buscaglia

Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.
– Wayne Dyer

The best way to get rid of the pain is to feel the pain. And when you feel the pain and go beyond it, you’ll see there’s a very intense love that is wanting to awaken itself.
– Deepak Chopra

Happiness comes from within. It is not dependent on external things or on other people. You become vulnerable and can be easily hurt when your feelings of security and happiness depend on the behavior and actions of other people. Never give your power to anyone else.
– Brian L. Weiss

You are ready for a change. Just start. Do something to start the change. Don’t worry about if you are making a correct decision.  It doesn’t have to be a correct decision. Once you take the initial step (right or wrong) you will be guided. The correct decisions will come to you. But not until you take that first step. Just start.



Orion and star in the universe

 

Your Daily Blessing

If the universe has given you the passion to want to do something, then be 100% assured it will give you the ability as well.

If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.
–  Deepak Chopra

Once you believe in yourself and see your soul as divine and precious, you’ll automatically be converted to a being  who can create a miracle.
– Wayne Dyer

Change is often hard because it actually causes your body to go into a state of chemical imbalance. This feels uncomfortable. Most prefer to avoid the change and return the body to a state of balance and return to a comfortable feeling. They can’t get past the short term discomfort to gain the long term benefits.

Money is no where near the key to happiness but anyone who says it doesn’t make life easier has either never had money or had money all their life and doesn’t know the difference.

 


BE RESPONSIBLE!


Your Daily Blessing

We too should make ourselves empty, that the great soul of the universe may fill us with its breath.
– Laurence Binyon

If you really want to remove a cloud from your life, you do not make a big production of it, you just relax and remove it from your thinking.  That’s all there is to it.
– Richard Bach

The thoughts we choose to think are the tools we use to paint the canvas of our lives.

Awareness in itself is healing.

Money is no where near the key to happiness but anyone who says it doesn’t make life easier has either never had money or had money all their life and doesn’t know the difference.

CONTROL YOUR LIFE’S ENERGY!

Your Daily Blessing

I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.
– Brene Brown

If you took one-tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you’d be surprised by how well things can work out… Complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won’t make us happier.
– Randy Pausch

When we dislike someone, or feel threatened by someone, the natural tendency is to focus on something we dislike about the person, something that irritates us. Unfortunately, when we do this–instead of seeing the deeper beauty of the person and giving them energy–we take energy away and actually do them harm. All they know is that they suddenly feel less beautiful and less confident, and it is because we sapped their energy.
– James Redfield

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.
– Nikola Tesla

Mathematics expresses values that reflect the cosmos, including orderliness, balance, harmony, logic, and abstract beauty.
– Deepak Chopra

 


DO YOU!


WOW

 

Your Daily Blessing

Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
– Miguel Ruiz

All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.
– Wayne Dyer

According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous. (quoted by Carol Lynn Pearson in Consider the Butterfly).
– Deepak Chopra


MONEY CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE DEALING WITH STRESS


Viele 100 Dollar Banknoten

 

Please stop thinking money is something bad or something that needs to be avoided or that you are less spiritual if you have money.  Money gives you choices and opens opportunities that you would not otherwise have.  You can use money to help others in ways you would not be able to if you didn’t have money.

Money is just energy.  Money is not good.  Money is not bad.  Money is a personality magnifier.  Money will take a person’s personality and broadcast it to the world.  A person who truly cares about others will be shown to be even more caring.  A greedy, self-absorbed individual will become worse.

Money gives you control over your life.

Feel good about money and you will find it available to fix many problems in your life.

Money removes barriers in your life.

Money is not the key to happiness, but it sure does help.


SELF AWARENESS OF OUR WHOLE SELF IS CRUCIAL


Your Daily Blessing

The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.
– Pema Chodron

Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart, and that depends upon how much he has polished it. Whoever has polished it more sees more – more unseen forms become manifest to him.
– Rumi

Every moment is an opportunity to receive and let go.  I receive love and I let go of pain.
– Brenda MacIntyre

The moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
– W.H. Murray

One of the biggest paradigm shifts is that you need to learn society has convinced you that you have to work 9 to 5 most of the days of your life only to retire at an old age.  That is just not true!

CAIN MAY HAVE BEEN THE FIRST HUMAN TO EXPERIENCE PTSD



The following is written by Dr. Oscar Ramirez. It is an examination of how the body deals with stress and looks at it from what the Bible says.

The human body has been designed with protective means to automatically cope with severe, overwhelming pain. When a person experiences overwhelming physical pain, the body automatically goes into a state of “shock,” and in life threatening situations, may ultimately go into a “comatose” condition. All non-essential physical functions shut down in order for the body to focus on dealing with the physical trauma it has experienced. The body does this automatically without being told to. If the body were not to react automatically In this way, the pain would be so intense that the body would succumb to it and die. Interestingly enough, the mind usually continues to function, even when the body is in a coma.

God has also instilled in the human mind a way to cope with severe, intense mental stress. When a person experiences overwhelming mental trauma or distress, he suffers a “nervous breakdown;’ which may even lead to a “catatonic state. The body is awake, the eyes are open; but the mind shuts down as it tries to deal with the extreme mental trauma it has experienced. This natural way off insulating the mind from overwhelming mental anguish protects it from the mental strain which would otherwise reach unbearable levels. It is not unusual for people to die from overwhelming emotional trauma.
The spirit of man, his emotions (soul) and his conscience also have a way of dealing with the horror of moral pain or spiritual trauma.
The body continues to function, and the mind also is able to function, but man’s spirit is “deadened; his conscience becomes “callused,” and his heart becomes “hardened.” In the absence of the key aspects of humanity, behavior is typified by a lack
of any evidence that these important human elements are functioning.
This is one view of what might be happening to someone experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
When did traumatic stress first begin?One of the first known cases of traumatic stress is recorded in the Bible in Genesis chapter four. Cain killed his brother Abel, and tried to discount the severity of his crime. He experienced denial of this guilt, “Am I my brother’s keeper” which also indicated that his true identity was now in question. The result of all this was immediate alienation from God. Cain became unable to do productive work (Gen. 4:12). He became restless, felt overwhelmed with fear, and helpless in the fact of potential attackers. He wandered about aimlessly. His symptoms were no different than what this generation’s vets experience with PTSD.
The most traumatic experience a human being can encounter is to have incurred the displeasure of God, “feeling separated and alienated from Him. The bad news is that everyone is considered equally guilty before God and thus alienated from Him. “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).
In God’s eyes, the murderer is no more guilty than the liar; “Whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in just one point, he is guilty of all-“(James 2:10)
The good news is that there IS a solution to this crisis of the spirit, soul, and conscience) The prophet Isaiah tells us that God is a reasonable God;”Come, let us, reason together with the Lord…”
Moreover, He tells us that He has a solution for our feelings of guilt as well as for our actual guilt. “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool”. (Isaiah 1:18
How is this done? The Bible says that the wages (payment) for sin (guilt) is death (Romans 6:23). Isaiah 53 says “all we like sheep have gone astray … but the Lord had laid upon Him (Jesus) the iniquity of us all.” The debt for all the acts committed in war, all your guilt, shame, and sin was laid upon Jesus and His death paid for it all. Why did God do this? “For God so loved the world (me and you) that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him (in what He did by dying on the cross) should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn’ the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth in Him is not condemned, but he that believeth not, is condemned already.”
.” (John 3:16-18)
If Jesus paid for all ALL your sins on the cross (including the wrongs done in the war and even after the war), how many sins do YOU have to pay for? This is salvation, and it is a free gift. Why carry your guilt any longer if God has already made provision to get rid of it? Simply ask God for forgiveness based on the provision that His Son made on the cross in dying to pay for your sins.
There are many other issues in life to deal with, but guilt no longer has to be one of them. It is no longer time to deny, it is time to accept.
It’s time to come out of the darkness… time to come home!

PTSD – POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER IS NO RESPECTOR OF PERSONS


Ever since I was a child, I always wondered why people were so unhappy.  I watched my family and other families experience so much unhappiness and emotional pain often.  I remember when I finally saw my father cry.  His mother died of cancer.  He was never the same nor was our family.  When my grandmother was alive, the Fields family was strongly bonded together and supported each other through thick and then.  Grandmother’s death meant the end of family support.  No one was the same, I mean no one.

As quiet as it is kept, we all suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Once grandma was buried, we had to go on as though she never existed.  We just didn’t talk about it.  Granddaddy seems to have taken it the hardest heart attack after heart attack until he eventually died.   Her children who were my generation’s parents ended up practically without parents.  Our parents were zombies on the road to self-destruction.  You see back then African Americans did not seek counselling.  They just acted like not anything happened.

When my grandma died, no one asked me how I felt.  No one embraced me and told me everything is going to be alright.  And no one told me what I was feeling was normal which was abandonment.  My grandma was the only person in my life that ever seemed happy to see me.  She was gone and there was not anything I could do about it.  I still had to eat my lunch and go to school.

Change is a Way of Life


Your Daily Blessing

If we choose to remain as we are, fearing that change is painful, we live with fear.

When the heart weeps for what is lost, the spirit laughs for what it has found.

However compassionate we are, we can never see entirely into the mind of another.
Learn to trust that part of the mind that you can’t see.

The subtle parts of your mind will speak to you if you keep quiet long enough to let them.

– Liz Dean


Weapon Against Stress


Today’s Inspirational Quote:
“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.”

— William James

 


GOD HAS ALWAYS LOVED US


I was reading the Book of Genesis recently and I was amazed of God’s love for His creations. So often when I read this book, I was more conscious of the Fall of Man than anything. But this particular time, God showed me something beautiful—His love for His children.

When Adam and Eve disobeyed God, immediately the consequences went into action. Yes, they had to leave the Garden of Eden, yes they surely had to die and yes they were set to suffer to survive. As harsh as this may sound, God knew what was best for them. He gave them covering for their bodies; drove them out of the Garden knowing if they ate of the Tree of Life they would suffer forever. He did not want that for them.

Even though they were disobedient, He still loved them. I never realized how much God lost in their disobedience. Their perfect relationship was gone. This was a painful time for God.

Gen 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

Even though Adam and Eve sinned causing us to be sinners, God had a plan to bring us back into His grace. He gave us Jesus. Since the beginning of time God loved us. We are so much like Adam and Eve. We cannot comprehend God’s love for us and we take chances disappointing Him knowing somewhere inside of us He loves us. He will not leave us behind.

Jhn 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I thank you Jesus for loving our Father enough to bring us back home. Thank you!love_poem_400x400

Caregivers for Our Troops



I am so grateful today for the nurses who tend to our soldiers.  After reading “Eye of the Beholder” by Elissa Gabrielle, I learned it takes a special kind of person to take care of our soldiers brought down by war.  The nurse in this story seemed like an angel sent from God.  She took the time to see the person not the victim of war.

And, I am thankful to those who love our soldiers suffering with PTSD.  If anyone we love have this disorder, we have it as well because we have to be there for them.  One of the first steps in  being there for them is like the nurse in the story, see the person, not the victim.  Let love do its magic.

God bless!

 


God is in Everything!


Dear Racist


Dear Racist,

First of all I want to thank you for reading my letter.  You do not know me and I don’t know you but I have felt your presence many times.  Yesterday I started my day thanking God for waking me up and allowing me to have a job.  There was a warm and grateful smile on my face as I greeted strangers I passed as I walked through the parking lot to enter the doors to my job.  As I turned the corner to get on the elevator, I was greeted with a dark, cold and fearful unseen vibration that made me wonder if Satan himself had entered the building.  I took a deep breath and proceeded to get on the elevator.  With a smile on my face I pushed the button to the floor I was heading to.  In the meantime there I was just you and me.

You stood there like you were made out of stone definitely was not giving up any eye contact.  You just stood in the elevator as far from me as you could almost as if you were not breathing.   Looking up with a smile, I silently thanked God I did not have to carry that spirit of racism in my soul.  I was glad you kept your distance because shielding me from your cruel vibrations was already difficult.

I don’t understand how you choose to hate someone you know not anything about.  Obviously, it is quite a chore to live with this conscious choice.  But do you know what it is doing to you?  There is no way hatred, anger; disgust, evil thoughts, and a need to attack and kill does not have a price.  These vibrations harm and kill the body.  Love cannot exist with these vibrations.  You can’t turn it off and on to love and return to hate.  It does not work like that.

How do I know how detrimental your state of existence is?  Easy, look at yourself.  Your consumption of hate is so great that you can’t keep it to yourself.  You have to find some kind of way to release it.  So powerfully overwhelming you have to release it on innocent people.  It kills you so you kill people.  It would take aliens from another world for you to realize there is only one race, the human race, a race God created.

I pray that you be set free from this demon of hate so you can live a healthier and warm life.  Your life is valuable.  My life is valuable.  God made us to love.  Just stop it, you don’t need it.  There is so much more to feel and experience in this life.

God bless

 


PTSD Has A Language



Hello!  I am a anxious to share with the world my take on PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  My soon to be released book, Soldier with a Backpack Living and Dying Simultaneously, promises to be more than a book.  It will prove to be a tool to face the monster within.  Living in a world taking mankind away from its true nature of whom God created us to be have serious repercussions.

PTSD is such an extremely personal experience yet it effects the world in a very impersonal way.  Through the hidden agendas of selfish and greedy people, innocent people are victimized daily through the hands of human choices.  Our soldiers should not return home after war to live a private life of victims to society.  And, our children should not have to grow up stressed out and traumatized by adult choices that leave them not- diagnosed- victims of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

We can come up with all the modern sayings forever and think the old sayings are irrelevant.  For instance, “What the world needs now is love.”  Yeah right!  Just like everybody needs Jesus……  At the end of the day, these old sayings stand true for the absence of this reality is why mankind is being killed by mankind.  I still have hope for us.  My message promises to leave seeds of hope and love.  From my heart to your heart I present a truth that will set you free from a world that thrives on murder of the heart.


CHOOSE – MAKE UP YOUR MIND


im3

Your Daily Blessing

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.
– Wayne W. Dyer

When you can accept yourself exactly as you are and accept others exactly as they are you will finally have peace.

If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.
–  Deepak Chopra

If the universe has given you the passion to want to do something, then be 100% assured it will give you the ability as well.choose


Inner Peace

After we have searched our mind and observed its many thoughts and imaginings, we come to peace.  How long we enjoy this peace is another story.  All it takes is another thought or demand placed upon us due to our daily choices of responsibility.  We move from one state to another mentally and physically without thought to our state of mind.  Peace is only required when it is time to rest for the night.  But the key to health is peace of mind.  When we have peace we make more positive choices with our lives.  The key is:  move with a mind that is at peace or don’t move at all.

God promises us He will keep us in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him.  In all we do, do with God awareness.

Peace
