From Chaos to Success

From Chaos to Success

     It seems that we have all been experiencing constant change at some level in our lives for years and as a result, we are running around frantically searching for the cause.  We view these changes as chaotic because we believe that we are fervently seeking success.  But the pseudo-success we seek is a form of stagnation.   Because we doubt our power, we want our lives to stand quietly by and give its’ permission for us to overdose on consumerism, reality television, social media and anything else that will suppress the desires of our heart.  But no matter how hard we try to ignore our power, our inner voice will keep knocking on our hearts until we answer, even if the only reason we answer is to end the chaos. 


     We were each created with more power than we will ever fully be able to understand.  Recent research in Quantum Physics has demonstrated that everything is energy and everything is interconnected to the seen and unseen.  Our thoughts create, our bodies are filled with healing power, and we are in the driver’s seat.   Are you ready to blast off toward your dreams and create the “super bowl” in your life?  If the answer is yes, here are a few pointers for your navigation system:
   1)      Heal your addiction to gossip & idle conversations – Some research suggests that we spend approximately 5 hours a day, 25 hours a week gossiping or participating in idle conversation and activities.  That is 25 hours a week that we are not working toward our goals.  Active involvement in this type of activity will keep you from being successful.    Instead, start to keep your mind on your dreams, and your dreams on your mind.  
2)     Learn to dance with your anger – We are never angry for the reasons we think; too often we read too much into situations, and we are constantly adding our stuff.   Emotions, feelings are road signs in our lives.  When you are experiencing anger, ask “why I am taking this personally?  Is there any truth to what was said?  What is this feeling revealing about me?  Have I felt this way before?”  Tracing these feelings back to the first time you felt this emotion will identify the issue that needs to be forgiven.  This step is critical.   Anger keeps your mind blocked and interferes with your ability to attract success, including money.     
3)     Expand your imagination - Instead of using your imagination to create trials, tribulations, and, drama, keep your focus on possibilities and not obstacles.  Allowing your mind to dwell on negative thoughts and images will rob you of any possibilities that are the horizon.  You can only achieve what you can perceive.       
       
These changes will allow you to create the best in life and develop your “greatness”.  The ball is in your court. 
 Let the God Times Roll.

A Mother's Memory

A Mothers Memory

     It’s time for the annual interrogation, and no matter what I do or say, I am unable to escape the constant questioning. As a mother, for the last 30 days, my family has continually asked “what do you want for Mother’s Day?, Where do you want to go for dinner? I am certain this ritual occurs in the lives of all Mothers.  I remember doing the same thing with my mother. 
     Most of us will approach this month trying to decide what can we do to show our mothers how much we love them; some will spend this month mourning the loss of their mothers, and some will feel disconnected because they do not have a physical presence of a mother.  But no matter where you stand, the Infinite All Knowing Presence of Spirit has made certain we would always have examples of mothers in which to turn.    
     According to the revealing word, Mothers represent the manifestation of spiritual ideas.  Mother’s teach us that the secret to success is actually not a secret at all.  If you do what comes naturally to you, if you do what you love, you will have all the success, joy, love you desire. 
     One of the important lessons I learned was to use the power of choice wisely and watch where I place my focus.  It was my mother and the many others who served as surrogate mothers  -my aunts, sisters - in my life that reminded me to stay focused on the good things in my life and no matter what never doubt my ability to succeed. 


     My Mother and the other mothers in my life also taught me never to give up.   Encouraged to keep working toward achieving my goals I can only hope that this added more joy to my Mothers’ memories. 
     Our Mother’s memories are filled with images of our successes and failures; over comings and frustrations. Their stories are colorful reminders of all that is good, and of all the kindness we possess and leave in this world.
  . Mothers give us an awareness that we have something to offer the world.  No matter what we may have heard, no matter what we’ve experienced, no matter our race, our income, or any other arbitrary factor, we were golden in our Mother’s eyes, we are golden in the eyes of Spirit.
     So when celebrating the Mother’s in our lives, give a memorable gift,  gift that will live in their hearts forever.

     No matter how much progress we have made on our spiritual journey, it seems we frequently find ourselves in a space cluttered with uncertainty, anxiety and even fear.  The more we try to ignore these emotions, the more we tend to drive them deeper into our bodies.  This refusal to live in the moment, to experience life and not judge it, can derail or health, our finances and our dreams.  We forget that we hold onto our emotions, our emotions do not hold onto us.    Each moment presents an opportunity to releases these emotions, and when we release them, they have no choice but to dissipate. 
     We have been hypnotized by society to bear the pain in our bodies rather than to authentically experience our emotions. 
Embracing Your Emotions

 Experiencing and releasing our emotions is easier than we think.  An extremely easy and popular technique is to start by locating the discomfort or pain in your body.  Once you have located the place of discomfort begin by placing your hand in that area and asking “what have you come to reveal to me; what memory is behind this experience?” 

     Write down what you are feeling and be as detailed as you can.  It will also help for you to record your feelings in as many perspectives as possible.   Now place your hand on the area of discomfort and breathe in with the intention or releasing the discomfort or pain.   Hold this intention for approximately 2 minutes. 
     If you are experiencing pain in multiple places in your body repeat these steps until you have acknowledged every place your body that is experiencing pain or discomfort.  
     After this process is completed, forgive any revelations that need to be forgiven. 
     The more you are able to listen to your body the better you are able to stay in the moment and experience the emotion. Experiencing the emotion will provide you with valuable insight into what you need to forgive or what you need to release.  
Cellular Memories

Another value healing technique is a technique used to heal Cellular Memories.  Scientist as beginning to suspect what alternative, naturopathic doctors have always known; our internal organs as strongly affected by emotions and specific emotions affect specific organs.     
     The Energy Medicine Tool, By Dr. Alexander Lloyd, from The Love Code: The Secret Principle to Achieving Success in Life, Love, and Happiness, is incredibly easy to use.  Below is a summarized version.  For more detailed information visit http://www.booksforbetterliving.com/energy-medicine-tool/
Position 1: The Heart
In the first position, you place one hand (either left or right), palm down, on your upper chest (over your heart), and place your other hand, also palm down, over the first. You can either rest your hands in this position and hold for one to three minutes, or you can move your hands gently in a circular motion (clockwise or counterclockwise, whatever is most natural), switching directions every 15 seconds or so, for one to three minutes.
Position 2: The Forehead
In the second position, you place one hand (either left or right) over your forehead, with your little finger just beneath your eyebrows (just barely grazing the bridge of the nose), and your other hand on top of that hand, both with palms down.
Position 3: Top of the Head
For the third position, place one hand (either left or right) on the top of your head, or your crown, and your other hand on top of that hand, both with palms down.
When you apply energy to these three areas—the heart, the forehead, and the top of the head—you’re physically increasing blood flow and functionality to the control centers for every cell, every thought, every emotion and every belief, as well as to your heart, third eye and crown chakras, the three most powerful cellular memory energy centers in the body. 

       To live our dreams we are required to fully experience life and embrace every event and opportunity as growth.  In your toolbox, be sure to carry extra helpings of acceptance, forgiveness, and love.     
     Gena Showalter says “Mom; you don’t just embrace your emotions, you make love to them.”

Every Dream Will Be Challenged


Every Dream Will Be Challenged

     Since the release of the blockbuster movie, The Black Panther, the African American community is buzzing with excitement.  People of color, who have been a victim of the “danger of a single story” (Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie), are again laughing, cheering and applauding all that we know to be true about who we are.  Confidence is returning, and a hope that this movie, in “Wakanda’ style, will transform what it means to be black in America.  It is a place where women of color are portrayed as brilliant, brave and beautiful.  For 134 minutes, women of color were able to step out of the portrayals of weakness and were permitted to assimilate into the brave images playing before them.  Black Panther may be seen as only a movie by the majority, however, for African-Americans, women especially, it was a vivid reminder of who we are. 

      There is no getting around the fact that the Black Panther movie was revolutionary.  But every dream will be challenged.  This was also evident in the movie.
     Metaphysically, we all face the challenge of balancing our desire to live our dreams of success while working to conquer our fears and our failures.  In the midst of a high-tech society, we have fallen victim to consumerism and instant gratification, and neither supply the inner power to guide us to the dreams we thirst to achieve.  




      Luckily, we come powered by a substance more powerful than Vibrarium.  We come filled with Spiritual Power; a power that can never be destroyed, and is easily accessible through our “awakening” coupled with a stubborn unwillingness to give up.

     Here are a few keys to living your dreams.




                    




1.       Make a Decision – decide what you want and why you want it. Once you know what you want and why you want it, start thinking about how you will feel having accomplished this.   Using your five senses, 1) imagine what things are present;  2) what do you hear?; 3) where are you sitting and what is the temperature? 4) is food present? 5) do you smell any odors?   Be certain this is what you want and not what someone else thinks you should have.

2.      Be Up to The Possibilities - as you allow yourself to think about all the possibilities of how your life will change, various negative emotions, thoughts, and events will appear.  Take the time to acknowledge your contribution to the negative event, forgive yourself and any others involved. Declare out loud “all lessons are learned, and blessings are received.”  Now move on.   

3.      Keep a Gratitude Journal – writing down what you are grateful for will keep your focused on what is going well in your life and not what is going badly.  Be generous with your gratitude. Record the simple things not just the big things  Being grateful for your health is wonderful, but so is being grateful for housing, food, water, internet, laughter, etc.  

4.      Create an Action Plan – write the steps you will need to take to achieve your goals.  Also, write down ideas as to how you will overcome any obstacles you think you may face.  Your Action Plan will keep you moving toward achieving your goals and ensure you have an action plan for any obstacles.  This Action Plan should include goals you would like to accomplish.

 5.      Take 5 Specific Action Steps Every Day – take five specific actions every day that will bring you closer to your goal.  Following this recommendation will help you accomplish more in a shorter period.  Some examples are 1) send press releases; 2) write a column; 3) read and respond to email.  

 

These steps will help you achieve your goals and overcome any challenges you may encounter.
