Life Is in the Transitions: Mastering Change at Any Age / September 14, 2020 by Bruce Feiler

“I believe we create every so-called illness in the body. The body like everything else in life is a mirror of our inner thoughts and beliefs. the body is always talking to us if we will only take the time to listen. Every cell within your body responds to every single thought you think and every word you speak. Continuous modes of thinking and speaking produce body behaviors and postures & ‘eases’ or diseases.

Not every mental equivalent is 100% true for everyone however it does give us a point of reference to begin our search for the cause of the disease. Many people working in alternative healing therapies use the ‘Heal your Body’ book all the time with their clients and find that the mental causes run 90 to 95% true.”

— “You can heal your life” by Louise Hay

The following are a list of probable mental patterns that create illnesses in the body. I will also list the new thought pattern, mantra or affirmation that can be used to clear the disease, & create health, but can also be used to prevent the disease, just as effectively. If you REALLY want to PROTECT YOURSELF during these risky times, make sure that you consciously repeat ALL the following “New Thought Patterns” over & over again daily, until you actually believe them all by default. Really engage your heart & mind, to FEEL the LOVE contained within these belief patterns.


Covid 19 Symptoms:

1. Influenza:

Probable cause: Response to mass negativity & beliefs. Fear. Belief in statistics.

New thought pattern: I am beyond group beliefs or the calendar. I am free from all congestion & Influence. (INFLUEN-za)

 

  1. Incurable:

Probable cause: Cannot be cured by outer means at this point. We must go within to affect the cure it came from nowhere and will go back from nowhere.

New thought pattern: Miracles happen every day. I go within to dis-SOLVE the pattern that created this and I now accept a divine healing. And so it is!

 

  1. Viral Infections:

Probable cause: Lack of joy flowing through life. Bitterness.

New Thought Pattern: I lovingly allow joy to flow freely in my life. I love me.

 

  1. Infection:

Probable cause: Irritation, anger, & annoyance.

New thought pattern: I choose to be peaceful & harmonious.

 

  1. Fever:

Probable Cause: Anger. Burning up.

New thought pattern: I am the cool, calm expression of peace & love.

 

  1. Respiratory ailments:

Probable cause: Fear of taking in life FULLY.

New thought pattern: I am safe. I love my life.

 

The LUNGS represent our capacity to take in or give out life. Problems with the lungs usually mean we are afraid to take in life or perhaps we feel we do not have the right to live life fully.

  1. Breathing problems:

Probable cause: Fear or refusal to take in life fully. Not feeling the right to take up space or even exist.

New thought pattern: I love life. It is safe to live. It is my birthright to live fully & freely. I am worth loving. I now choose to live life fully.

 

  1. Anxiety:

Probable cause: Not trusting the flow & process of life.

New thought pattern: I love & approve of myself & I trust the process of life. I am safe.

Circa 2020: honeymoon phase EXPIRED

Happy Passover, & Happy Easter everyone. Thank you for your time & attention. Sending out good vibrations of  protection, health, wellness & peace in this unsettling time. If you would like to know what’s REALLY going on in this EPIC Covid 19 NEW NORMAL we all now face… tune in here. Allow me to engage you.

You may LISTEN to this article>>>Press Play! Tap FOLLOW when you’re through!! 

And we begin…

The slow poison of worry, doubt & fear, may be coursing through the veins of the airwaves of the mass media at this time. This very well may be negatively influencing the mass consciousness to panic, engage in scarcity thinking or drum up all kinds of conspiracy theories. It’s no secret that almost every single part of the globe is on some kind of quarantine. But as Americans, we should be reminded that we live in a supremely great nation. The greatest nation on earth, as a matter of fact. The United States of America is not perfect, our infrastructure may have been under prepared for a pandemic of this proportion. Leadership may indeed be sub-par in certain areas, but we continue to rise to the occasion & improve daily, no matter what mixed messages we may be receiving.

Now is not the time for politicking, however, we are gonna have a friggin field day when damage control puts together a post Covid 19 committee to evaluate how well the system worked. Not to mention, Universal Healthcare would come in real handy right about now. Universal Healthcare is just that… universal, without any discrimination. It’s not the pillar of socialism, & people who say otherwise are just holding on to some egotistical fascism. Period. 

However the cookie crumbles, we are all in this together.

We are essentially on a battlefield where there is death & dying everywhere. Many people are suddenly & unexpectedly leaving this world. It’s tough to watch, when you look out into the world at your fellow man. Solutions to issues are unique to each region, demographic, class, & person. Solutions are not one size fits all, of course, so knowing exactly what your individual needs are for yourself, family, business & life, is your responsibility. Fortunately, as luck & location would have it… we live in a land where not only has Big Brother offered assistance, but there are an overwhelming amount of citizens donating money, food & supplies, & gathering together to fund programs, charities, initiatives, to help any one in need. Now is the time to cash in, if ever there was a time that anyone needed help building their life. Don’t be afraid to speak up, ask for help, or put yourself out there. People now sympathize with each other on a human level, in a most unified heart felt way more than ever before. The heart center (chakra) is being activated on a grand scale due to this. Love always wins.

*I have created a list of helpful organizations at the end of this blog, if you are in need, in any way, at this time OR you would like to make a DONATION. Every dollar counts. Hotlines, phone numbers, aide, funding, food resources, etc. 

Think about it… people everywhere these days, are filled with empathy, checking in regularly on neighbors, relatives, friends & the elderly. Good Samaritans are coming out of woodwork, people are pitching in, offering services, or a shoulder to lean on. Influencers are writing helpful articles & blogs, doing informative, encouraging, crafty, musical, cooking, or storytelling web, news, pod & broad-casts. Our favorite doctors, gurus, spiritual leaders, pod-casters, & You Tubers across the globe are offering free advice, group meditations, seminars, energy activations, group calls & clearings. Main stream media is teaching, recommending, & encouraging, various meditation techniques to reduce stress & anxiety in these trying times… that’s a real punch into the glass ceiling, if ya ask me. Not so long ago, did middle America coin meditation practice or TM (Transcendental Meditation) as… fruity or flighty or cosmic fluff. NOT ANYMORE. Yea, um… learned it when I was 21, been practicing for 25 years. Thank you very much… 🙂

Folks everywhere are more than willing to offer love, support, lend an ear or donate a dollar. Celebrity money is generously flowing, Fortune 500 companies are following suit, Go Fund Me’s are in major effect, & philanthropy is at an all time high. Foundations are being started, grants are in full bloom, loans have low or no interest, school loans are deferred, late fees are waived, foreclosures & evictions are postponed. Stocks are at an all time low… so now is the perfect time to buy, & expect an almost certain future windfall. At the rate human generosity is flowing, no one will ever go hungry, homeless or unclothed ever again in this nation. 

Heck, it’s nice to see some nonpartisan leadership as well, across the nation & also across the globe. We are all essentially on the same team. Pandemics & the like, tend to boldly REMIND us that we are all one species, equal & the same race… the HUMAN RACE. And as spiritual beings in a human suit, we should also be sure to recognize the Divine Plan behind all of this. Things are not always what they seem. The God-force works in mysterious ways. Proven throughout time, spiritual teachings, God-force, the God-mind, Cosmic consciousness, Universal Law, Source, “the God of your understanding,” whatever the heck you call it… will ALWAYS find a way to come through to humanity. Even if it’s via a corrupt leader, a crooked regime, war, tragedy, disaster, or crisis… spiritual guidance will always find a conduit. The time has come, for us to fly forth, in a new improved direction. 

Divine work is at hand, appearing as an ominous force under the guise of a crisis that appears to be sinister. It is a challenging time for those who have to contend with unfamiliar territory. It is a vacation or sacred retreat for those who know how to utilize idle time & space to their advantage. It is a time of uncertainty for those who have little faith in a higher purpose & plan. Yet it is a time of obvious transformation, reflection, personal inventory, renewal & rebirth for those who advance with the growing times & trust the process of life. Nature has not betrayed us, but rather Divine timing has dictated that we slow down, in most cases STOP. Stop polluting ourselves, stop polluting the earth, stop diluting ourselves, stop diluting the richness of earth’s natural resources with greed & selfish disregard. The powerful egocentric aura that humanity has thus far through the ages built & established & esteemed… is now being challenged, uprooted & redirected.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The flawed infrastructure, belief systems & premise upon which our society has led us through the ages, has essentially damaged us & the earth over time. The overall paradoxical infrastructure of polarities that built temporal pleasures & thus pains… is now expiring. We are finally at a place in our human evolution here on the earth plane… where we have been given this grand opportunity to cut ties, cut cords, cut off the mire of past paradigms, the problematic past programs, the old expiring belief systems that just don’t work anymore, if we choose to be free. Free of suffering & pain & low vibrational melodramatic folly that does nothing for us but waste time & groom us for a better life anyway, essentially. Why don’t we just cut to the chase & live that life now. We need not have to learn & grow via pain & incessant mistake making. We can learn & grow & live our best life now via simple gratitude, joy, love & light… pain free.

Outdated human patterns are now dropping like flies by the waste-side, rapidly. The sludge of our forefathers is being consumed by the mud of Mother Earth to be recycled into the fresh soil of new beginnings. At this time… we commend our troops on the front lines of this transformation. All medical personnel, law enforcement, fire fighters, EMS, sanitation workers, transportation workers, funeral home directors, medical examiners, mortuary assistants, housekeeping, food store clerks, food workers, truckers, postal people, scientists, the military. Medics in particular, took a Hippocratic oath to serve. Last I heard, there were 85,000 (thousand) VOLUNTEER medical workers that are now helping out New York.

Let’s take a moment, shall we… to honor & respect these warriors, heroes, Earth Angels, & all the unsung heroes who make this planet so amazing. These humans are making significant personal sacrifices ever single day in order to serve their fellow man selflessly. Wearing hats they never had to even wear before, these people are rising to the occasion, adapting to shortages & dangers & emotional situations unprecedented. FB is right, all nurses’ & doctors’ student loans should be forgiven after this, by default.

Front line noble acts of unconditional loving kindness are the alchemical properties that assist greatly in the changeover to the “New Earth.” Just like how the blood of our lost soldiers that spilled violently on the fertile grounds of the uncivil wars of yesteryear led to big breakthroughs of compromise & peace. The blood of those who are sick & pass on from this world at this time from this silent enemy, are the casualties who are our war heroes killed in the line of duty in many cases… that made the ultimate sacrifice. They are also a significant part of that alchemical formula of the bigger picture. The people who pass on, will infinitely go on… & so will their loved ones that are still here. Everyone needs to grieve. Loss is a sad state of affairs. But eventually time heals & life goes on. Human beings are resilient creatures of superior strength.

We cannot fight fate. But rather, flow with it & understand it. Become a part of its process to alchemize us & our spiritual infrastructure. Everyone is placed purposefully exactly where they are each individually meant to be. It is no mistake you are where you are, wherever that may be. Everyone’s lot in life is different. Our duty as individuals at this time, is to honor our positions, embrace our place & accept what it is that is in front of us at this time. For those of us who are sheltered in place, out of work or working from home, the fat is trimmed down, worldly distractions minimized, the curtain of illusion is fading, do do do & go go go is now halted.

Community & social events, activities, options & opportunities are just about null & void. We are being faced with ourselves, & ourselves alone. Essentially forced to “shelter in place” to do so. The mirror of our lives, is no longer clouded by a world of busy distractions, convoluted schedules & appointments, white noise or drama. We now have a front row seat on the set of our very own reality show. The exact people, children & pets in our lives are all in one place, the home we have thus created & built for ourselves is apparent, we have a boatload of free time as an opportunity to honor ourselves & families in a way like never before. We now have an opportunity to get to know eachother on new levels by deepening relationships with the people that we live with or nourish the long distance ones with non physical communicating & connecting, perhaps on a deeper level as well, in a way that we may have never done unless we were basically forced to. We now have an opportunity to gauge our daily coping skills, gauge how self sufficient we each actually are, how resourceful, how creative we can be when faced with various unique challenges. Again, we now have a front row seat on the set of our very own reality show.

Do we like what we see? Do we enjoy who we are? Are we happy with who we have chosen to surround ourselves with? Are our homes built with love & security? Are they built on a foundation of faith & fruits of the spirit? What’s inside those four walls is a mirror reflection of what’s inside of us. What’s the business of your life look like? What needs attention? What needs improvement? What needs a little TLC? What needs to be renovated, cleaned out, given away, or organized? What can we do to feel more secure, content, balanced, at peace, fed & well rested? How can we nourish ourselves & our families in a more holistic & organic way?

How can we revise our daily lives, structures, plans, & practices to include more down time, meditation or prayer, mindfulness, exercise, conscious breathing, communing with nature, & zen activities that serve our soul? How can we revise our daily lives, structures, plans, & practices to include more time with those who are precious to us, time following our passions, time being more creative, time & energy with things that really matter? How can we revise our daily lives, structures, plans, & practices to serve us with growth, improvement, & healthy patterns that are refreshing, revitalizing & fulfilling? How can we revise our daily lives, structures, plans, & practices to make it easy to achieve goals & live our dreams regularly with no excuses & little procrastination? How can we be more positive, more grateful, more balanced, more grounded, centered & aware? How can we use that awareness to alchemize our own zones to be that little bright corner of the world where we create responsibly? Thus, we will benefit humanity properly from a place of wholeness… from a place of true self-love, from a place of peace.

Our homes are our headquarters. From this observation deck, we can view our very lives & gauge not just the temperature of our bodies, but also the temperature of our current personal climate. What needs to be healed? What needs to be addressed? What kinks need to be ironed out? What relationships need work? What relationships need to be mended? What relationships do not serve us anymore? What ones will we allow to fade away? What cords need to be cut?

We are being forced to slow down, stop & smell the roses & sit still in many cases, apart from any other identity than our own. The busy influential world outside has slowed & basically stopped. Notice the birds are singing louder, wild animals are gathering more freely, the polluted skies of LA have cleared to blue. Human traffic is no longer gnarling up the energy waves with noise, static, confusion or contention. The nefarious senseless low level crimes committed daily all over towns & cities coast to coast have been significantly reduced. Consider this a cleanse of sorts, if you will. 

There will always be those villains though, in every crisis, who maliciously attempt to capitalize on weakness, desperation, fear, exhaustion or vulnerability. That said, sophisticated criminals are now popping up everywhere. Although cyber crime, scam artists, fraud, identity theft, organized crime & drug rings, are surfacing exponentially at this time, don’t let that fool you, this is a good thing. Awareness is the first step. We cannot address what is not known. That said, Interpol is now working twice as hard to produce sophisticated software that will foil these kinds of criminals. Going forward, plans will be in place to educate communities on how to be vigilant & how to take preventative measures with their teams, staff members, offices, schools, & families. Just as the Covid 19 virus spreads, so does malware, spyware & infected emails sent by hackers with virtual viruses. Due to the recent prevalence of these kinds of otherwise clandestine crimes, when we come out of this, we will have a way better task force to tackle & contain it going forward. This… is significant progress.

The International Criminal Police Organisation, more commonly known as INTERPOL, is an international organization that facilitates worldwide police cooperation and crime control.

Speaking of technology, might I take a brief second to just mention that not only will our world & human society at large, be transformed, at this time, for the better, in ethereal ways… but our world is also about to enter into a massive tech revolution inclusive of the 5G technology that is going to advance us like never before. This flood of new technology will indeed match our new improved states of being, as we evolve & grow each & every day into more enlightened ego-free, soul based beings. This new technology may be controversial for some, or refuted by others for several reasons, but in the end, it winds up making the most sense in the scheme of things.

Regarding the pandemic… we are coming out the other side of this with a renewed sense of self. A renewed identity both personal, professional & public. We are coming out the other side of this with renewed faith, a new lease on life & a new real sense of purpose, a deeper purpose for all of us & our families. We are now being called to show up. We are collectively being called to actively participate in the rebirth of our union. A conscious revolution that far expands into the next & future generations to come. How we respond to this mass blessing masquerading as a crisis… is of the most superior importance at this time in the scheme of our human evolution here on earth. Just like significant time periods in history that were break through eras, this time now in our history is unprecedented. It will be memorialized just as the Italian Renaissance, the American Revolution, the Roaring Twenties, the Reconstruction era. We will look back with endearing sentiment as to how this period of civilization was the very doorway to the Golden Age of man.

Although, it is certainly not up to our egos to lead the way with some kind of false sense of power or authority. The spiritual strands of our DNA are being activated, old programs uninstalled, new ones uploaded & then downloaded. We are all being assisted by powers beyond our finite minds. The God-force works tirelessly behind the scenes with our Angels, Guides, Guardians, Elemental & Spiritual beings of light to move us along quicker & more efficiently than we could ever do on our own. This is why we are being told to shelter in place. Not only to protect ourselves & each other from some man made runaway viral infection… but more so for the deeper purpose of allowing the Greater Good to perform its magic on us without the ego’s bundle of poor excuses, blocks, walls, & distractions. We are all now in a more vulnerable, thus receptive state of surrender & this is exactly what Spirit needs in order to implement her new designs into our hearts, minds, lives & family units.

This is all about personal responsibility. Taking personal responsibility not only for your actions & ability to follow the outer directions of our leaders in office, medics & scientists… but also taking personal responsibility for our actions & ability to follow the direction of our intuitive nature, our soul’s passions, our God identities as opposed to the selfish wants & needs of the ego mind. That darn Ego mind who always seems to want it his way with little or no regard for his fellow man or consequences for that matter… like a teenager who doesn’t think–it–through. The ego is an enticer, an entrapper, a empty promiser, an instant gratification prophet. The ego likes to limit us while pretending to give us the world & all the power & satisfaction in it. But, the ego is just a poor sad little means to an end.

The spiritual guidance system within us, is the true leader of our lives. The still small voice within that if we allow to become loud & proud will actually not be so still & small anymore. It will thus begin to dominate our individual existences with unimaginable forces of magic & miracles. Consequently, our lives will no longer be filled with disappointments, false hope, indignation, negative consequences, lack, limitation, fear or frustration. Our lives rather, will begin to light up with the fruits of the spirit in ways formerly unimaginable to just regular people walking around with their heads in the sand.

It’s time for us to release the ego from that secret chamber in our heart, where it resides day after day in chains just rattling around like an old scary stuck ghost in limbo. Go into the light! Let’s unhinge the tired old ego from our heartstrings, always playing the poor me pity card & the infamous blame game… & let him sail off into the sunset of an old Scorsese gangster movie or Tarantino vampire flick.

The time is at hand for all of us to consciously take our rightful places here on earth & transcend the egocentric way of existence to move forward into the vast sea of union with oneness. Love opens codes… to our greater lightbodies. As we ALLOW our souls to surface more & more each day… via self-love, we allow that still small voice to become the big loud voice that will begin calling the shots for us, our loved ones & our communities. The ego is no longer relevant in the New World.  The New World will laugh at the ego as it tries to foolishly assert itself. The New World is filled with people who spot bullshitters & recognize trauma & toxicity for what it is… low vibrational unhealed sad hearts who just willfully refuse to shed their egos & get free.

The New World is not having it. The New World is one of peace, joy & good for the Greater Good. The New World order has had its reckoning with unhealed unhealthy individuals stuck in the pain of past paradigms & released them. As the New World order formulates itself upon this earth, man becomes a greater more instinctual conduit for miracles, wealth, health, joy & love. Man becomes a willing participant in his own co-creation, enjoys the journey of self realization & gathers together with his fellow man to share & inspire & reach greater heights of grace & glory.

There will be no such thing as blame or injustice because man will no longer actively participate in a dark underbelly of self pity or the senseless chatter of fuckery. Everything is enjoyable. Life is good. Gratitude, a higher power. Love, light, integrity, fortitude & loyalty to the one heart presence will be king. Purposeful practices will be second nature. Perfect programs built in & installed. The correlation of everything will look beautiful, not judgmental. The world will be a new & different adventure for us, the light at the end of the tunnel we will actually be LIVING IN. No more tunnel. just the LIGHT. No more sad sad unhealed hearts running around covering up things with senseless addictions, obsessions, & attachments, co-conspirating with each other to employ excuses for not living a full life.

Note to heavy hearts dragging around stuck harbored negative emotions: Get healed. Period. No more excuses.

If you are a human with a beating heart & an active conscious mind… you can most certainly CHOOSE to heal, grow & renovate yourself to reposition your life path for a greater purpose & better day. Humans still stuck in past paradigms of pain, suffering, anger, sadness, lack & limitation, war, poverty & injustice will eventually die off & go right back into the pool of recycled souls & then choose to revisit the earth at a later date, when the world has had a chance to make a fuller recovery.

There is a mass plague of humans that roam the earth right now, that just don’t care. Mother Earth is no longer your dumping ground, your punching bag, your torture chamber for innocents. You shall rightfully be recognized for the plague that you are. “Forgive them father for they know not what they do,” Jesus said. I get it. But, now is not the time in our history, to NOT BE KNOWING what u do. Ignorance is not bliss it’s the biggest deadly sin there is. The ONLY one if ya ask me. Ignorance is the sole reason why any human would behave in any kind of way that’s less than Godly, fortuitous & noble. Enlightenment should be the first desire of all hearts. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God & all else shall be added… ALL ELSE .

Seeking enlightenment to thus exceed any trace of ignorance is nothing but righteous & indefinitely rewarded with the peak performance of the soul engine. Alignment, balance & a state of grace is achieved. Being tuned in, tapped in, & turned on, being in the vortex as the master teacher Esther Hicks would say. These are the fruits of a tree rooted in the soil of enlightenment. Any tree that’s rooted in the soil of the decomposing dead bones of ignorance… will produce rotten fruit. It’s called karma. In other words… reaping what one sows. Planting pearls of wisdom in one’s garden will grow nourishing plants. Planting lies, deceit, hatred, remorse, guilt, contempt, sadness, self pity, blame, misinformation, & misconceptions will grow thorny poisonous weeds, that wind up tangling a person’s life to death. Seek the truth & the truth will seek you. Be the conscious leader of your life, a true believer in goodness, kindness & grace. Be a dedicated disciplined consistent constant vibration of balanced unbiased intention. Pay attention. To all the signs & small voices, to all the simplicities & to your soul speaking.

Pay attention to the nuances, to nature, to the unfolding of things, the subtleties of things, the energy of a person, the aura of a room, the intentions of the people around you. Pay attention to the path your on, the feelings that arise, the emotions that well up, the enthusiasm that dawn’s with a new idea, the passion that emerges with a new friend, the peace of a restful sleep, the calming cozy cleanse of a rainstorm. Pay attention. Pay attention to the sun on your face, the Vitamin D absorbing into your skin, the space in between… where the magic happens, where the hidden gems are found. Pay attention to your dreams, the food you eat, the television you watch, what you consume, what you listen to & read, what you feed into, what you believe. Pay attention to your body, your cravings, your feelings, your passions. Pay attention to your words, your thoughts, your deeds, your actions, your behaviors & moods.

“Know thyself.”

Shelter in place… to thus “Know thyself.”

Self-knowledge is the key to the knowledge of Truth or God. And throughout the ages, all the great enlightened beings taught this.

Self-knowledge is the key to the knowledge of Truth or God. And throughout the ages, all the great enlightened beings taught this.
 
  • “Know Thyself” – Socrates
  • “Examine yourself & understand who you are… Whoever does not know self, does not know anything. But, whoever knows self, has acquired the knowledge of the universe.” ~ Jesus, Book of Thomas (Gnostic Gospels)
 
  • “Knowing others is intelligence, knowing yourself is true wisdom.” – Lao-Tzu
  • “This is true knowledge, to seek the Self…To seek anything else is ignorance.” – Bhagavad-Gita
  • “The body is the temple of the gods within you. And therefore, it is said, “Man: know thyself.” – ~ Egyptian Proverb
  • “Jesus said, ‘When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you shall know that you are children of the living Father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you live in poverty.’” – Gospel of Thomas
  • “Those who know and realize the Self are forever free.” – Katha Upanishad
  • “All the scriptures tell us one thing: Know Thyself. If you have known yourself, you have known everything else.” – Swami Satchidananda
 
Spiritual Law, How to know God, Self realizationBut, what is self-knowledge?
 
If we say, “I know myself” – meaning our outer shape, body, form such knowledge will never lead to the knowledge of God.
If we say, “I know myself – I am (insert your name)”, well that tells us nothing either for that is just a label which our parents have chosen to attach to our form when the “true you” was born into this world.
 
Real self-knowledge consists in knowing what we are within! It is knowing where we have come from, where we are going, and for what purpose we have entered this world.
 
Now there are lesser reasons (purposes) as to why we are here. Some of us need to learn about patience, love, or compassion, while others may need to learn about forgiveness, mercy, etc… But our greater purpose is to realize that we have all come from the same “Source’” – that we are one with God. Our great purpose is to recognize or awaken to the truth of our inner being. Even Christ’s great message was that we are all Children of God – divine sparks hidden within this body. And recognizing your divine self is the key to your freedom.
 
You come from a royal lineage – one of love, compassion, peace, strength, happiness, wisdom, and courage. To define ourselves in terms of our limited human nature is a desecration of the image of God within us. We must learn to not identify ourselves with that which must pass away, for that part of us is not real. What is real is the eternal part – and we are eternal for we are energy.
 
So, do not dwell on your short-comings and do not dwell on your faults. Why should you dwell on negativity and limitation when God doesn’t mind your imperfections. Instead, dwell upon your innate perfection. Contemplate the part of you made in the image & likeness of God, and claim your birth-right. For, when you know thyself as It’s child, you become empowered by all you have inside.
 
So, make it your purpose to know thyself. For, within you is hidden the treasure of treasures. And if you
“know thyself you will know the universe & God.” – Pythagoras
 
Now meditation is a priceless tool for attaining this knowledge because it is an inner looking practice. It helps us to see what’s really going on within our hearts & minds. It also helps us to realize the truth of reality. And as the great Carl Jung once said,
“The person who looks outside, dreams; the person who looks inside, awakens”.
Awakens to what?  Self-knowledge or God-realization.
 
Through this realization, we can confidently & boldly declare with certainty that “I & the Father are one!”
 
Blessing on your journey and may each of your days be filled with an abundance of love, happiness, & peace! ~ Anthony Profeta

Life Is in the Transitions: Mastering Change at Any Age / September 14, 2020 by Bruce Feiler

 

A little Metaphysics for ya…

“I believe we create every so-called illness in the body. The body like everything else in life is a mirror of our inner thoughts and beliefs. the body is always talking to us if we will only take the time to listen. Every cell within your body responds to every single thought you think and every word you speak. Continuous modes of thinking and speaking produce body behaviors and postures & ‘eases’ or diseases.

Not every mental equivalent is 100% true for everyone however it does give us a point of reference to begin our search for the cause of the disease. Many people working in alternative healing therapies use the ‘Heal your Body’ book all the time with their clients and find that the mental causes run 90 to 95% true.”

— “You can heal your life” by Louise Hay

The following are a list of probable mental patterns that create illnesses in the body. I will also list the new thought pattern, mantra or affirmation that can be used to clear the disease, & create health, but can also be used to prevent the disease, just as effectively. If you REALLY want to PROTECT YOURSELF during these risky times, make sure that you consciously repeat ALL the following “New Thought Patterns” over & over again daily, until you actually believe them all by default. Really engage your heart & mind, to FEEL the LOVE contained within these belief patterns.


Covid 19 Symptoms:

1. Influenza:

Probable cause: Response to mass negativity & beliefs. Fear. Belief in statistics.

New thought pattern: I am beyond group beliefs or the calendar. I am free from all congestion & Influence. (INFLUEN-za)

  1. Incurable:

Probable cause: Cannot be cured by outer means at this point. We must go within to affect the cure it came from nowhere and will go back from nowhere.

New thought pattern: Miracles happen every day. I go within to dis-SOLVE the pattern that created this and I now accept a divine healing. And so it is!

  1. Viral Infections:

Probable cause: Lack of joy flowing through life. Bitterness.

New Thought Pattern: I lovingly allow joy to flow freely in my life. I love me.

  1. Infection:

Probable cause: Irritation, anger, & annoyance.

New thought pattern: I choose to be peaceful & harmonious.

  1. Fever:

Probable Cause: Anger. Burning up.

New thought pattern: I am the cool, calm expression of peace & love.

  1. Respiratory ailments:

Probable cause: Fear of taking in life FULLY.

New thought pattern: I am safe. I love my life.

The LUNGS represent our capacity to take in or give out life. Problems with the lungs usually mean we are afraid to take in life or perhaps we feel we do not have the right to live life fully.

 

  1. Breathing problems:

Probable cause: Fear or refusal to take in life fully. Not feeling the right to take up space or even exist.

New thought pattern: I love life. It is safe to live. It is my birthright to live fully & freely. I am worth loving. I now choose to live life fully.

  1. Anxiety:

Probable cause: Not trusting the flow & process of life.

New thought pattern: I love & approve of myself & I trust the process of life. I am safe.

Who She Is: a little background

About the Author

My name is Jenay (JZapp), I was born in the hurricane season circa 1974, which makes perfect sense, because I certainly do like ta shake shit up. I am a writer. I write & write & write, that’s what I do. I came out of the womb with a fat lip from fighting off the earthlings tryin’ to pull me out onto this godforsaken land. No doubt I was snapping gum (if a toothless baby could snap gum), sporting a green sun visor, brandishing a pen & white legal pad, making lists & taking notes. It was September 18th, which was the five year anniversary of the death of Jimi Hendrix, bell-bottoms were en vogue, Eric Clapton’s cover of “I Shot the Sheriff” just hit the Billboard top 100, & it was fondly the era of the sexual revolution, better known as “Free Love.”

I knew how to write before I could talk or walk if that makes any sense. If writing was a faucet of running gold…. I would be the Queen of England, Egypt, and 12 other great empires. I would live in a golden castle with a golden cat & eat golden cucumbers. Diamond chips would be shooting out of my fingertips. Writing is what I do best. It’s how I live. It’s what I know. It’s timeless. It’s healing. It’s cathartic. It releases unwanted emotions. It exonerates. It liberates. It validates. It vindicates. It provides resolutions, answers, clues, closure, knowledge, information, wisdom, comic relief & enlightenment. I NOW HAVE THREE published books available on Amazon.com.

I am most definitely a wordsmith. Frankly, I have way too much fun with words, I can’t resist. I have some serious spunk & there’s no denyin’ my audacious attitude. I am my own brand of freelance writer & reporter of current, relevant, buzzworthy topics. I write colorful articles, create moods, stir things up, am brutally honest & have no apologies, & if ya don’t like me, oh well.

I’d like to think that my writing style is a blended firestorm of bursting color, & a healthy trail mix of Saturday Night Live, Sarah Silverman, Marisa Peer, Esther Hicks, Bob Marley, Bono, Kathy Lee & Hoda, Jimmy Fallon & a tiny sweet little dash of the Royal Renegade of radio… Dr. Michael Savage. I am a melting pot of many influential people. You don’t have to agree with me. I don’t have to always be right. I will say it how I see it, anyway.
I am a poet. I claim poetic license to the max, in or out of rhyme. I am an Artist of Word Art. What I write is deliberate. The English language is a “living” language that is still evolving. It’s not Latin. “Proper” grammar or sentence structure, etcetera, etcetera… may or may not apply here, thereof. So those of you who either may be nitpickers or English majors, put on some sunglasses, put your feet up, & flip on some tunes, cause nobody’s countin’ commas at this party.

If you read through my blog (Tap FOLLOW!)… you will find that I am a bit of a diplomat, pleasantly patriotic and am quite an ambassador for female empowerment and principles. I’m also a tried & true Culinary Grad, a foodie for sure, & recently embarked upon a Vegan lifestyle, so I feature plenty of nutrient-rich intel. As a “recovered addict,” reformed Catholic, abuse & rape survivor, I am a significant advocate for addicts, those in recovery, victims of abuse, animal rights, anyone ready to embrace their power & improve the quality of their life. I wear a hero helmet most days that reads: “power to the people” on the front, and “justice” on the back. I believe in equality, respect, unity, peace, & the eternal Divine force of Universal Law.

Furthermore, I am an Empath. This means I have the gift of clairsentience which loosely translated, means: “clear sensing.” And thus, I have a supersonic capacity to feel, sense energy & experience everything in detailed technicolor. Empathic souls absorb more than non-empathic people. We typically have a deeper understanding of life… & not by choice. We are born sensitives. I literally feel the pain of a wine-soaked drowning fruit fly. It gets even more amplified when I’m high… lol. Look out! She’s a philosopher!

This hyper-developed sensory perception has given me the ability to channel intel from higher dimensions, & over years of continued contact, I have become fluent in these transmissions via writing. In addition, empaths are the arch nemesis of narcissists… which is probably why I tend to have a bone to pick (more like 5 or 10) with any kind of controlling, egocentric, self- serving, dictatorial non-diplomacy.

What I stand for is non-denominational, non-affiliated, nonpartisan & all-inclusive. I am an amplifier of goodness & Light. It could be said that I am a proactive agent for the greater good. I espouse positive thinking. I consider myself a leader in the Conscious Revolution, a Light Guide/Life Coach/Spiritual advisor all rolled into the cool girl next door. Thanx for reading!

Crown of Thorns: Let it burn!

48336209_303

With all due respect, I pay my deepest regard for the loss incurred by the Cathedral of Notre Dame fire. Parisians have my deepest condolences. I traveled to Paris once in my life at age 24. I paid a visit to this sacred tourist attraction. When I entered the Church, I was in awe of its ancient charm & magnificence. I couldn’t help but notice the depth of the ceilings, & I became very anxious. I began wondering intently about how  awesome the acoustics might sound, so I immediately began to drum up the courage to sing.

fixedw_large_4x

I was a bohemian musician back in those days, who was pretty brazen to say the least. Like no one was watching, I belted out a loud melodious stream of consciousness that seemed to echo to the high Heavens. I didn’t care who was paying attention, I knew I had only this once in a lifetime, fleeting opportunity. My voice echoed immensely bouncing off the reverberating antiquated cathedral ceilings that seemed to rattle the stained glass. “I got to sing in the Cathedral of Notre Dame,” I thought! “Super rad, wait til I tell all my friends!”

So, it’s not like I don’t understand the beautiful, timeless grace this remarkable space embodied. The Cathedral of Notre Dame was nothing less than a gorgeous Gothic gem shrouded in mystique. I get it. I’m a fan.

However…

With regard to the Cathedral’s significant damage, can someone tell me how ONE BILLION DOLLARS was raised so fast? In honor of the rebuilding process, the Cathedral’s “Go Fund Me” page (if they had one) was on fire too. The French president, Emmanuel Macron, claims it will allegedly take an ADDITIONAL ONE BILLION DOLLARS to complete the 5-10 year job. Lets do the math, shall we? Thats, ummm…. yes!

TWO BILLION DOLLARS.

TWO BILLION DOLLARS to rebuild an old church? What about all the poor, homeless, sick or dying, starving people that a CHURCH is actually SUPPOSED TO clothe, feed & shelter? What about what a church STANDS FOR? Doesn’t a church aspire to expand love, peace, compassion, healing, & nourishment?

Who gives a flying rats ass about a fucking spire, when you have thousands of human people, children & animals suffering across this fuckin’ unbalanced planet?

How did the world community raise ONE BILLION dollars in just 3 days for a fucking building?

The world community should really do some soul searching here. The French president & the congregation & ministry OF THE NOTRE DAME CHURCH… should think hard about how they decide to spend that ONE BILLION OR TWO.

What would Jesus do… you ask?

Feed, clothe, shelter, spread that wealth among the people who need it everywhere. Fund programs, fund causes, finance missionary endeavors to save the Planet & the people in it.

ONE BILLION DOLLARS is ALOT of money. TWO BILLION DOLLARS could feed everyone on this Earth for the next 5 years, probably.

I don’t disagree with the rebuilding of a sacred iconic monument said to have housed Jesus’ crown of thorns. But, think about it… that crown of thorns, which was salvaged BTW, is a symbol of SUFFERING. That crown of thorns was maliciously placed on Jesus’ head to humiliate him, debase his character of love, peace & unity & shame everything godly & good.

“Priest Jean-Marc Fournier is credited with dashing into the burning Notre Dame Cathedral on Monday to save its most sacred relic.” —nypost.com

He was praised as a hero, for God’s sake, for SAVING an outdated, afflicted, thorny, sinner crown that essentially added insult to injury to the great Jesus Christ at his weakest hour. I would have LET IT BURN!! LET IT BURN!!!!! And let all that horrible shit that it represents… go up in flames with it!

Good thing I live in America & I have the freedom to speak the TRUTH> #grateful

“Spire, in architecture, steeply pointed pyramidal or conical termination to a tower. In its mature Gothic development, the spire was an elongated, slender form that was a spectacular visual culmination of the building as well as a symbol of the heavenly aspirations of pious medieval men.” —www.britannica.com

Did you hear that?? The spire is: THE SYMBOL OF THE HEAVENLY ASPIRATIONS OF PIOUS MEDIEVAL MEN.

Universal Law states: that outer circumstances, experiences & events reflect the state of the inner sanctity of man.

Which means, that the symbolic spire that burned up in flames & came crashing to the ground, was also a reflection of man’s HEAVENLY ASPIRATIONS going up in flames as well. The PIOUS MAN won, for all intents & purposes, for… THE CROWN OF THORNS (pious man) was SAVED!! What a shame. Damn.

My bad, maybe we should indeed care about the fucking spire. But in a totally different way.

My take on it? If that man thinks that it was so noble to SAVE that creepy haunted hoodoo relic with bad mojo… then going forward, he should rightfully use that GIANT LUMP SUM of ONE BILLION DOLLARS to help SAVE HUMANITY at large. The PIOUS MAN cannot be allowed to continue to win. This NOTRE DAME FIRE, essentially, was a BIG FAT symbolic WAKE UP CALL, my friends. And, how fitting… it happened in front of the whole wide world. Hmmmm.

Everything happens for a reason. Behind destruction, there is a GIFT. That gift in this case, you ask? An instant ONE BILLION DOLLARS. Makes sense, doesn’t it? I’m not being unreasonable. There are hidden meanings & analogies all over the damn place, here. Take off the blinders.

Keep it up, delusional people who care more about false idols than the TRUE MEANING behind them. Lest I remind you all, that KARMA IS A BITCH. She will renovate your ass, way more masterfully than any renovation of a damn building. And, that’s a promise.

Think it through, Papal people & those in office… CHOOSE WISELY.

The BOOMERANG is REAL.

Namaste,

Ode to Doubt: Yerrrrr Out!

36f7eeb562fb98bc7f7257f2cd4edbef

Ode to Doubt

Get out, doubt! Ya big fat hungry cow. Today I am choosing to live in the worry-free zone of the NOW.

You will not come between me & my passion. I have a love affair to nourish, a fortune to fashion. I have a heart to expand, horizons to stretch. My fuel is FAITH, I have higher planes to catch.

Doubt, you are no pal of mine. Belief is my partner in crime. You won’t  be leaving me in a pickle, with your bad attitude, & uncertainty that’s fickle. Your conniving little riddles no longer rock the boat, cause trust is my companion that keeps these water wings afloat.

I will invite you in, only if you win. I invited the fun, cause it already won. I invite flexible freedom, cause it casts no fears. I invite small pleasures, cause they make memorable days into valuable years.

Get out doubt! You’re just a pushy little swine. You only clutter, close, & callous the mind. Take a sabbatical, a retreat, a long overdue vaycay… dash off to where the warm sea-salted breeze can whittle all your whining away.

Doubt, you are young, dumb, foolish & unrefined. You’re undecided, scared & wasting my time. The tiny little space you rented in the house of my head is foreclosed. You no longer take up residence, are no longer opposed.

You may no longer stay, make me pay, ruin my day. Your time has expired… your fired! You’re just so plain uncouth & so rude, that I’ve decided to replace you with  little Miss Gratitude.

I burnt the box you were in, chimney swept you out. It’s time to go, my dear, please don’t scream & shout. Because I can’t hear you, I listen only to LOVE speak. The rat tales you spun are meager, hapless & weak.

Oh dear lovely sunshine… when you paint the skies today with your ray-filled brush of sorts… I will honor only the blessings that Miss glorious Gratitude courts. I will focus on benefits, bounty, beauty & wealth. I will embrace the sounds, the smells, the gifts of good health.

I look, I see, I acknowledge, I feel, I know. I allow, I am acquainted, I am connected, I flow. I am receptive & open, my heart is sparkly & spacious, my soul is on fire, my spirit is vivacious. I sit & bask, sleep or relax, take the scenic route & drive for miles. Doubt, you’re only a raindrop… in a bucket of contagious smiles.

Rowdy Doubty-pants… I’ve unpaved your silly plans. Sunshine & happiness are my newest friends & fans.

Sport that Diamond sparkly crown, give it all you’ve got! Flip that frown upside down, run & jump & hop! Life is good 🙂

Bob-Marley4

Be gone doubt! Steeeeee-rike!! Yer OUT!!!

Gratitude: the REAL focus factor

046cb08c4ba34d58145010b402cc821a

This is not an anomaly. It’s common knowledge that the practice & skill of the art of gratitude builds a certain positive momentum in one’s life. That momentum picks up speed & girth much like a snowball tumbling down a hill. The key to fortune & peace & happiness in all areas of life…is as simple as the pixie dust in a snowball, really. Turn on the gratitude… turn on the steady stream of focus on appreciating what’s good. By doing this, we become powerful beings that amplify light & love. We become unfettered by any & all predetermined limitations, barriers, blocks, or densities. We become free.

0f70987856711b5c5cea932ca740220a

The objective is to build the gratitude momentum into a driving force. Like the electromagnetic current running through the wire streaming to the light switch in the house 24/7. Like the blood coursing through our veins to the heart pump & back again in an endless flow of circulation 24/7. Like the County water supply rushing to the kitchen faucet 24/7. We must develop a continuum of momentum…of GRATITUDE…coursing through the veins of our life experiences, relationships, communications, connections, perceptions & expressions, in order for this virtue to be most effective. This momentum is composed of a state of gratitude via the vehicle of: the observation/(focus) on the good. Our own individual personal power lies….solely within our ability to do this. That’s a true statement…pay close attention: the more we are grateful, the more personal power we harness…to create a life of total fulfillment & joy.

I am fully aware that not everyone is on the same level of learning, same spiritual path, on the same page or even on the same wavelength. But we all can agree on one thing…a smile is a smile. And why are you smiling? Because you are experiencing a happy feeling. Guaranteed, we can all agree, if it is making you smile, you are in the state of appreciating it….whatever it is. So, whatever it is that makes you smile, feel good, secure, at peace, happy, content, warm, fuzzy, empowered, lifted, confident, strong, nourished, beautiful, blessed, included & loved…..observe that. You’re so much prettier or more handsome when you smile!  20161124_195648 (me… grateful for you taking the time to read this!) 🙂

Choose today, to develop a level of continuous observation, of all things that exist within your realm of experience, that are “good” & essentially… what you desire or ultimately want in life. Small manifestations & evidences of your fondest wishes, dreams & desires materialized…count. You may essentially want to win a million dollars, but only win 5$ on a scratch off…be grateful for that five dollar winning & it will multiply…what it is, is evidence of the momentum of manifestation….the more we focus on it the more girth & speed it will gain…the faster the momentum becomes….& voila! We have a winner! Ding! Ding! Ding! Publisher’s Clearing House shows up at your door :)! Point is, don’t ever get dismayed or discouraged…choose gratitude instead. Why? Because what you seek is always on it’s way to you even if it may not appear that way to the naked eye. No need to worry. Practice faith based on this premise. The genuine appreciation of the now, & all the goodies within it….is the most efficient manifestation accelerator & most practical way to fan the flames of your dreams & desires. The more you engage in gratefulness, the more miracles you will see pop up like daisies across the fields of your experience right before your very eyes. This state of mind is affectionately called: “the attitude of gratitude.” Therein lies the birthplace of faith. Like I said…there’s no room for worry….when ya have an “attitude of gratitude.”

9581a74c22c7fed8d22b42501e398709

What is worry?  Worry is the lack of faith. Moreover, Worry is a symptom. It is a symptom of the steadfast observation of lack, limitation, injustice, guilt, fear, sorrow, or the disdain for circumstances or people. The exact opposite of the observation of all things good that we’ve been talking about. Worry is a symptom of the pure observation of the not so good, if you will. The “downward spiral of good” versus the “upward increase of good.” When we are brave enough to behave in a manner that shifts that observation point to the “upward increase of good” position, we become grateful. A state of gratefulness elicits a state of carefree confidence that proliferates the emotions that compose faith.  Faith, is a symptom of a steadfast observation of the upward increase of good. This good is found in any & all evidence of the following things listed below: (and then some)

Abundance; wealth; health; luxury; riches; happiness; laughter; fun; joy; beauty; grace; friendship; love; goodies; snax; bonuses; rewards; plenty; excitement; stability; security; wonder; inspiration; respect; honor; caring; adoration; pets; nature; flow; affection; unity; community; harmony; success; celebration; exhilaration; elevation; satisfaction; playfulness; charm; ease; peace; tranquility; comfort; freedom; demonstrations of faith; demos of dreams realized; demos of Divine design; demos of small miracles, coincidences, gifts, rewards, blessings. 82678-grateful-quotes-about-gratitude

I’m sure we have all had someone tell us to “count our blessings,” as a child, on some occasion. I noticed recently, that now that we are all grown up, if we are “told” that… often times our ego mind hears a condemning command: “Count your blessings, son!” as we cower to the feelings of guilt over feeling like we have not been a good boy or girl & been thankful enough. With all due respect, the ego mind tells me that statement feels like a penance we are told to say after we confess our sins to the priest behind some creepy red curtain. And, if you do not obey, you will then be subject to the likes of Hell.

Reminiscent of the former days of Catechism Sunday School class with wooden desks that smell like dust & pencils. The dense stuffy classroom air not even fit for a hamster tank. Not to mention the crux of it all, the crucifix, the ultimate sacrificial human lamb hung hauntingly on the wall not too far from the rather large numbered loud ticking clock. Both seem as if they will pounce off the wall & get you, if you stare at them for too long… as they work in conjunction to exude that perfect synergetic blend of guilt, fear, & deadlines. Oh that infamous clock & crucifix of every Catholic classroom. “Count your blessings children!” Said the scary dictator/nun/intimidating teacher with a yard stick. No wonder why my Dad’s generation had authority issues…lol. The heavy regime of organized religion was just another organized crime family…if ya ask me. Fear & control…not friendly teachers. images-4

Moving on…another trendy recommendation in the current pop culture Gratitude Movement is: “make a list of all the things you are grateful for.” While the list could be an excellent way to remember & review your blessings, unearth them & acknowledge them…more times than not, does this list wind up in some drawer somewhere, or if tacked to the fridge…it just becomes a part of the scenery & alphabet magnets.

gratitude_list

With that said, my belief is that to explain the gratitude technique is much more practical than to tell someone to count their blessings or make a list & repeat it 3-5x daily, likened to a homework assignment. I would like to redefine the way we teach & learn gratitude. A new approach that mitigates the process, since the ego mind tends to be quite traumatized by certain historic or religious ordinances. We do not want the idea of practicing gratitude to feel like a chore, a scolding or an implication of bad behavior… where guilt then ensues, defeating the whole purpose of amplifying good vibes. Crossing the bridge over to Gratitude City should be fun & exhilarating! Let’s reinvent the way we travel there, shall we?

A damaged ego is the toughest customer whom we could attempt to sell a dream to. When dealing with a bruised ego, the art of coercion must be the mode of operation. In this way, we explain to the ego mind, how living in gratitude makes perfect sense. As a result, gratitude is then seen as harmless, an obvious benefit, & a gratifying experience. The idea of practicing gratitude becomes enticing to it & eventually it follows suit. It’s not what you say…it’s how you say it. This cannot be more true & applicable to all of life’s circumstances, from the transference of knowledge from professor to student, to the simplicity of teaching a kid to behave properly, or curbing your pet…even. Animals do indeed recognize the neg or pos vibration of your tone.

We all know that we are grateful at heart, while some of us focus on what we are thankful for more than others…most of us know better than to take things for granted in life. I really truly believe that most of us don’t even realize how self-sabotaging the mind can be. Thus, we often times will find our thoughts engaged  with disdain or complaints on how we just wish for things to improve or be better…as equally & frequently as with gratefulness. It is not our fault that we slip into this mind set. We were often times programmed this way since childhood, & in order for that attitude of gratitude or gratitude mindset to dominate our thoughts 100%, we’ll have to train it that way & practice accordingly. The good news is>>>>>>>

the-gratitude-muscle

We all know that to be grateful is the key to a happy heart. The pop culture iconic Oprah Winfrey coined the word “grateful” for many of us in our day. We are thankful on Holidays. We are thankful for a meal. We are thankful when we dodge a bullet. We are thankful for mom & dad or a lover, neighbor or friend. We are thankful for the job that provides us with the means for monetary pleasures & survival or self-fulfillment & purpose. We are thankful for our energy, vitality, resilience…our gifts, talents, skills & abilities. We are thankful we can see a sunrise & breath fresh clean air. We are thankful to have an unlimited supply of clear clean running water & two legs to walk & run & exercise freely. We are thankful for our pets & plants for providing company, joy & oxygen. We are grateful for the health & hygiene of our teeth, our immune system, our digestive system, our nervous system, our heart health, bone heath, muscle memory. We are grateful to have a cell phone, high-speed internet, a fridge, a microwave & a mode of transportation. We have cable,  google at our disposal,  google maps to navigate us to the moon if we wanted! Whew! we have a whole lotta stuffy stuff to be grateful for, folks, I do declare 🙂

What if I told you, that what you focus on you expand. I’m sure you already know that. So let’s apply it shall we? This is much more than “counting blessings” or drawing up lists. This is a way of living…that will indeed effortlessly get you to exactly where you want to be in life promptly, with all the benefits & blessings you’ve ever dreamed of & more.

The ego mind loves that idea, I’m quite sure! So let’s begin…

We are now about to be mystified by the pure magic formula for wealth, health, success, freedom, & love. Dunt da da da! “Living in Gratitude!”

live-gratitudeWhat does living in gratitude mean?

It means…to be living every single moment in a state of honed in observation of goodness. We choose to observe the elephant in the room instead of the rats beneath his feet.

Let the elephant in the room be: the obvious truth of the ever existence of good. If we are not talking about it…let’s start! Let this obvious truth be noted by our observations at all times.The obvious truths of the ever existence of good are: all things positive…how did I phrase it earlier? The upward increase of good. This is the obvious truth I speak of.  Anything representative or demonstrative or symbolic or reflective of bounty, beauty, success, satisfaction, brilliance, harmony, & the sweetness of life & nature. From the most minuscule example to the most grandiose display. If the only thing in that room (or your life) that you can find to be positive or fits the upward increase of good category, are the pretty flowers in the vase on the table in the corner….while everything else seems to be drab, dark, desolate, or dreary….focus on that! If the fact that your breathing is the only thing you can find to be grateful for….focus on that then. Seriously. lol

In other words…through the eyes of an artist…if the only thing in the ghetto that we can put in that category….is the tiny bright yellow shiny butter cup sprouting out from the crack in the dingy sidewalk….then by all means, lets focus on that. You may then find that with this simple exercise, as you hold your focus on the buttercup, that a butterfly will appear, to add to the goodness & expansion of the “painting.” Catch my drift?

FunFact: (A=432 Hz, known as Verdi’s ‘A’ is an alternative tuning that is mathematically consistent with the universe. Music based on 432Hz transmits beneficial healing energy, because it is a pure tone of math fundamental to nature.The Universal music of sacred geometry)

The constant 432 hertz live stream of consciousness that should be running through our minds at all times is: the formula for grateful observation. Observing only good. Making the wallpaper in the back drop of your mind’s room a live wallpaper of everchanging observations of upward increasing goodness. The elephant in every single room we walk into is what must be observed in order to be in a steady state of gratitude…hence “living in gratitude.” Ya know when something unfavorable happens, & someone says to you…”Look on the bright side…”? Well…”living in gratitude” is a just another way of saying… “My mode of operation is… looking at the bright side.

Notice & observe. Notice & observe. Notice & observe. EQUALS>>>>>

Focus & expand. Focus & expand. Focus & expand. EQUALS>>>>>

MANIFESTATION.

Being in a state of “living in gratitude,” makes our life’s main focus on: the upward increasing good. As a result, we essentially begin to expand all that is good in all the ways that good things grow, stretch, blossom, produce, bear fruit, grow gifts, express, extend, & accelerate further. We don’t have to know what is going to expand exactly, or how or in what way. The details follow suit to the focused intention on good. That’s the part where we can let go & let God, if you will.

Our job: We focus on all that we are grateful for.

Universe’s job: Deliver more.

Our job: Focus again. 

Universe’s job: Deliver even more.

I’m gonna be honest….up until this very moment…I did not realize the importance of this old adage: “glass half empty; glass half full”

It’s code for: “Live in ignorance >or< Live in bliss.”

Very simple: either we train our brains to “live in gratitude”  by observing all things “half full” which leads rather swiftly to a focus on all things good resulting unequivocally with the expansion all things good.

OR…..allow the lazy untrained  brain to dominate, deceive, & sabotage us with shoddy glimpses of half glass empty observations. This will essentially end up making our lives miserable, dissatisfied, unfulfilled, & wired with all kinds of misfortunate circumstances.

Misfortunate circumstances are a direct result of living beneath the flow of gratitude, flopping around like a fish out of water in the underbelly of servitude. Serving negative vibratory frequency…by participating in the foolish practices of glass half empty observation. This servitude turns to slavery fast & we are then victims of our own self-sabotage, doubt & loathing.

We notice the less fortunate. We observe the less fortunate. We focus, we expand, the less fortunate. Period. Small way, big way, whatever amount of time we spend in an hour, a day, a week….playing for the glass half empty or glass half full team…will determine our fate, destiny, & essentially our life experience. That is how we take responsibility for the creations of our personal realities…here on Earth in our daily lives.

Allow me to make this distinction then: Being grateful is a temporary state that is fleeting. Living in gratitude, on the other hand, is a lifestyle that remains as long as you live it, & will undoubtedly furnish your life with unlimited miracles, magic & plenty.images-3

We Choose.

How much time do  you spend playing for the half empty team? How much time do you spend playing for the glass half full team?

“Check yourself before you wreck yourself”404604747-funnypicture-funnyquote-hahaha-reminds-me-of-due-date-you-better-check-yourself-before-you-wreck-you

Just how does one check oneself?

By asking yourself this: What team am I playing for? Observe your observations & you will know the answer. The answer then depicts your state & resulting condition. If your condition needs improvement in any way on any scale, then the best & only way to achieve that improvement is…to play more fully present for the glass half full team.

Check yourself defined: Catch yourself backsliding to the half empty team.

Prevent wreck yourself defined: Realign immediately with the glass half full team &….proceed happily & accordingly.

Gratitude…the ultimate alchemist! quotation-melody-beattie-gratitude-unlocks-the-fullness-of-life-it-turns-what-we-2-13-81
