Change….a scary, often painful journey for some. It is easy to run from. It does not have to be this way. It should be viewed as a joyful event, just as a wedding, a baby’s birth, or a new home is. There are many emotions associated with these events, both negative and positive, but the end result is that of joy. Take a second look at change. In reality, change only occurs when our soul has granted permission. Yes, your soul has given permission for changes to occur. It is how you react to those changes that determines the outcome.

Change only occurs when our soul has granted permission
We have come to understand that our natures, both physical and spiritual, need to be in sync. Likewise, there needs to be balance between our human existence and that of Mother Nature. If we strip all of nature away for our own pleasure and need, we will eventually be left with nothing. As we strip from nature, with no regard to what surrounds us, know that we are also stripping away the beautiful nature of the living creatures and thus our own spirit. Our spirit lives in the song of the birds, the peace of the deer, and the abundance of the rabbit, When we strip their ability to do what comes naturally, we strip from ourselves our ability to live in our natural state, that of peace, joy, and love.
Thought For The Week……
Our spirit lives in the song of the birds, without that song, we are nothing!
Be happy and joyful, full of life, love, and living. To be happy in the midst of those who are not is a skill, a mindset, that you must practice on a continual basis. You can be around people who are sad, negative, and angry and still be happy. Do not feel guilty or ashamed. Understand and accept that to be in a state of happiness means that you must have gone through a state of sadness, that is how it works. Do not minimize the pain that you have been through just because someone else is in that same place. You have worked hard to get to a place of happiness, let no soul take that away from you. Do not be afraid to be happy! Happiness is catching! You might just become responsible for bringing about change in those around you. Be happy!
Thought for the week….
If you are happy, be happy!
Yes, there is a God, and yes, there is such a thing as perfect timing. Time does not exist in the realm of angels and enlightened beings, something that we must come to accept, surrender to, and adjust to. Thoughts must be integrated along with messages for their desired effect. Please know that you are watched over, administered to and greatly loved. Messages need time to be processed and must be delivered when the timing is right. Become aware and be assured that your thoughts are correct. You must resolve old issues in a timely fashion, thus allowing you to move forward when the timing is perfect. Messages are just that, messages. You must allow the emotion to run its course. Know that you will receive information in plenty of time to adjust. Do not rush the process, it is essential to your growth and development here on this earth.
Thought For The Week…..
“Yes, there is a God and He does know what he is doing!”
Notice the colors that surround you. The vibrant colors of life. The bright yellow of the finch, the striking red of the cardinal, the deep purple of the butterfly bush. They are a simple, yet strong reminder of the beauty of life, the beauty of our own existence on this planet. If we can take notice and enjoy what is presented, then can we not take notice and enjoy the beauty of ourselves? Take a moment to stop, be still, and reflect upon the vibrant colors that surround you. Find joy and peace. Have faith that there is a plan, that God does exist, and that there is a reason for your existence, your life force. Life is vibrant, use the beauty of nature as a sign that all is well and that anything is possible.
Thought For The Week…..
“Allow the vibrant colors of nature to pull you deep within”
Why not try starting each day living in your own perfect world? Ask yourself what would that be. At first, the answer might be startling. You might not care about the world around you or what people are saying or doing. You may just not want to answer that phone call or text. A perfect day might be no personal drama, no work crisis, no health issue, or no financial worries. When all of that is striped from your day, ask yourself again, what would living in your own perfect world be like? The mere thought of that will bring a smile to your face. Imagine what that day would be! Those thoughts are what you want to put out to the universe for all to see. Our thoughts are powerful and are a reflection of how we feel about ourselves and our lives.
Thought For The Week….
“Our thoughts act as a mirror, adjust them accordingly”
Why do we compete? Sporting events are, of course, competitive and essentially so, but competing with others in our day to day lives, why do we do it? It all comes down to a lack of self. If we feel that we are not good enough, we look to the ways of others to fill that void. Let me assure you that competition should be left for the sporting field, it has no place in our daily living. A question to ponder, do you think a lion, or even a bird, is worried about what other lions or birds are doing, or are they concentrating on what they need to do? Competition exists, but make no mistake, it is a man-made way of being, not a heavenly ordained one. All questions can be answered when you observe nature. Think more of yourself, observe those around you, and stop competing! The peace that you will find is incredible!
Thought For The Week….
“Think more of yourself, observe those around you, and stop competing!”
Look at things differently today! See things as they are, and try not to respond to it, good or bad. It is a great practice to remove yourself from the emotion of living and go with just being. Be your physical self with no emotion. Let your day happen, do your work, read a book, cook dinner, whatever it is that you do, do it, but do it with no thought or emotion. This is called giving yourself a rest, time to allow your emotions to catch up with you and be released. Why hang on to things that you no longer need or even want! Just be!
Thought for the week…
Give yourself permission to rest and just be!
To truly live a life on this earth takes some doing. Living is much more than a breathing, functioning, physical self, it is the challenge of letting our spirit take control and dictate our day to day living experience. A bold concept, maybe even a scary one, but if one was to let their spirit take control, their true spirit, then all would be well. Think on that thought, things would be done in alignment with what our soul feels is best. Imagine a life filled with a deep sense of joy, profound moments of happiness, no worry to speak of, just living. Life would certainly take on a whole new meaning. Remind yourself, live for today, don’t fret about the past, and let tomorrow take care of itself.
Thought for the week…..
“Ask yourself daily, am I truly living today or just functioning?”
Knowing that you are not putting yourself first is simple. When you feel exhausted, overwhelmed, challenged, and just downright mad, it is time to be selfish and self-centered. It is time to put yourself first in every part of your life. Center your energy, time, and will on doing what is best for you, even at the expense of others. Trust me, they’ll get over it or find someone else more than willing to absorb their energy. Work still needs to be done, chores still have to be completed, but do it in such a way that the focus is entirely on you and what you need to have happen. This practice, needs practice, so practice and you’ll get the hang of it!
Thought for the week….
“Put yourself first because no one else will”
