The Power of your Enlightened NO!

There’s this OTHER THING about your brain you must know, so that you are working more intelligently with your mind to move you in the direction of your real desires.  Last week I told you how your brain likes what’s familiar- and encouraged you to make the desires which may be unfamiliar much more familiar. (If you missed it, listen to recording of last week’s show.)

 

Did you also know that your brain is hardwired to move you toward pleasure and away from pain?  That’s right. It’s what keeps the species alive.

 

That is why you should trick the mind to believe that it is SO PLEASURABLE to do what you know you need to do, and painful to keep old destructive habits.

 

For example, if you complain and don’t like something that you know you need to do (like going to the gym) you will find ways not to do it.  Your brain won’t let you keep doing something you don’t like. There’s not enough discipline in the world for that long term.   You have to LINK what you want with pleasure such as: “I love going to the gym, I love eating right, I love to meditate and feel relaxed, I just love being in love, I love being in a committed relationship, I just love going to work and being productive, I love making money!”  Link pleasure in your mind with what you want to keep or attract into your life, your YES’s.

 

Then, link pain to doing what you shouldn’t be doing or what you don’t want in your life.  Link discomfort to what you truly want to say NO to.

 

For example, let’s say you don’t want to keep eating sugary desserts.  When you eat them you normally think, “Oohh I love this, I shouldn’t do it, but it tastes SO GOOD!”  You’ve linked pleasure to it and you’re going to keep doing it.  What if, you really wanted to stop that sugar addiction?  You would need to link more pain than pleasure to it.  Think instead, “I don’t like the way I feel, this tastes terrible, it’s too sweet, it feels horrible after I eat this, yuk,” etc.  OK- lie to yourself until you believe it.  Link pain to what you want to say “NO” to.

 

Understand how the brain works and work with it.  Learn to trick it and direct your mind to take you in the direction you know will bring lasting happiness, health and success.

 

Be enlightened and say “NO” to what doesn’t serve your genius.

Say “YES” to what does, because it FEELS SO GOOD.  More please.

 

Clear instructions to yourself will bring you in the direction that you consciously want to go.  Yes!  I love that!  I love and get so much joy and pleasure giving myself clear direction.

 

Say YES to Big, unlimited love!  It feels so good!!!

Are you manifesting consciously to the degree you know is possible?

Are you utterly excited and blissfully passionate about the fact that we live in a universe that is SO FABULOUSLY INTELLIGENT?

I know. I know.  I know-Sometimes.

Sometimes- not so much.

OK, you’re human… and so am I!

I’m always looking for inspiration, motivation and education to remind me of the power of my inner focus.

Here’s the one thing that’s been working big time!

Create A Manifesting Journal.  

That’s right. Something you write in every day (I like mornings) and just stream of consciousness write down things, experiences, people- anything you want to pull into your life and experience. Just write it down. Write your gratitude, too, and anything that has already so perfectly manifested for you. Put your ATTENTION on manifesting and gratitude.

THEN…. and this is important…. finish it every time with:

“Universe, make these manifestations SO CLEAR, that I know, without a doubt, that it is YOU doing this!”  (Thank you Dr. Joe Dispenza, I love this!!!)

Then- keep your eyes open!  Every time anything manifests, recognize it!!! Be grateful! Focus on the good that keeps coming into your life! (It’s so weird [not!] lately this has showed up for me as an unexpected paid trip to Hawaii this last week, the PERFECT little black dress at 30% off, new clients and unexpected money. I know! I love this! My point is give credit to the Law (Spirit, Lord, God, Presence, Krishna, Christ- you get the picture!) and your alignment with It!

You live in a perfect universe and everytime you give credit to the Law of right action you build your faith muscle, and then you begin to REALLY GET EXCITED and your practice and disciplined thought clears up even more.

TRY IT! You will start to see stuff moving in your life!!!

The Heavenly Point of Choice. Make it now.

As I watch the ups and downs all around us politically- in the nation and the world; the weather patterns and the massive amounts of personal stress, anxiety and depression I witness in people around me, I am reminded of why I, and many others like me are here on earth.  To hold the light.  To be the love.  To experience the spiritual reality in the midst of turmoil.

The following true story is pulled from the writings of Gregg Braden, which I’ve used and talked about many times, and it still inspires me.  I hope you’ll take a minute to read it and remember that there is a choice.  We have wandered back and forth in our choices to live with love and now is the turning point of choice.  We must choose, what is real, what is true for you, and what you want to stand for.

Long ago, the Hopi Indian Tribe, a Southwestern American tribe, who’s name means, ‘People of Peace’ were given the diagram of a life plan that would guide them through this time in history.  Their plan consists of two parallel paths, parallel possibilities, representing the life choices of humankind.  In the beginning, both paths appear very similar.  The upper path, however, gradually turns into a broken zigzag that ends no where.

Those who choose this path are represented with their heads detached, hovering over their bodies.  They will experience the great shift as a time of confusion and chaos leading to destruction.

The lower path continues as a level line, strong and even.  Those choosing this path live to advanced ages and their crops grow strong and healthy.

Approximately two-thirds of the way along the paths is a vertical line connecting the two.  Until this intersection point is reached, the Hopi say, we may move freely back and forth, exploring the two paths.  Following this point in time, however, the choices are made and there is no return.  In the words of quantum physics, this portion of the prophecy describes a choice point, an opportunity for humanity to experience the paths of both worlds and choose which is true for them.  In the words of the prophecy, “If we hold fast to the sacred way as the Creator devised it for us, what we have gained, we will never lose.  But still, we have to choose between the two ways. Mother Nature tells us which is the right way.  When earthquakes, floods, hailstorms drought and famine will be the life of every day, the time will have then come for the return to the true path.”

According to the Hopi, the time of purification is upon us.  The severity of our cleansing is being determined, as our individual responses to life challenges create the collective outcome.  The chaos of change is our opportunity to refine our beliefs honoring the portions that work and gracefully releasing those that may no longer serve us.  It is our new, finely honed worldview of the present that will carry us gracefully through the times of future challenge.  Their vision of our future concludes by admonishing us to be responsible in the way we use the powers of our bodies and our machines.  Once again we are reminded that the choices made each day will determine the duration and severity of our days of tribulation.  Which path will humankind walk? The greed, the comfort and the profit, or the path of love, strength and balance.  With simplicity and eloquence, Hopi prophecy reminds us that the way we live our lives determines which path we follow.  The choice is ours.

 

 

Happiness at Home… The Little Things That Can Add Up Big!

We’re all looking for greater happiness and the good news is this: tiny, seemingly small changes to your home, your lifestyle and the way you talk to your loved ones can add up to you being a much happier person.  It’s not the big changes, success and accumulating that create the happiness we seek, but generally, the little things done within us, around our homes and with loved ones.
There is “happier-at-home” project started by Gretchen Rubin that she talks about in her book by the same name.  In this we are encouraged to find happiness in our daily routines -and by making our home more enjoyable.  She states four things that will help us do that:
1.  Find out what makes you feel good at home.  Is it the pictures or trinkets that remind you of your family?  The smell?  The lighting?  The art?
2.  Next figure out the primary factors that make you feel bad at home- and start to eliminate or change them.
3.  Ask yourself how you can feel right more often- that is how you can develop a lifestyle, home and routine that reflect your values and align with what’s important to you.
4.  Search for ways to develop an atmosphere of growth at home, an approach to life that keeps you focused on maintaining a go-get-em attitude.  Create a positive, supportive environment.
We spend a lot of time at home, lets help it work for us…. but also to remember:
“Snails may be slimy and generally pretty gross, but they do have one thing going for them: they get to bring their homes with them wherever they go.  With the right perspective, you can do the same.”  Gretchen Rubin
So yes, truly home is where our heart is, it is within us and our physical homes can reflect who we are and be the sanctuary to support our happiness!

DEVELOPING THE HEALING MINDSET

 

  1. Know that everything is happening “For you” not “To you.”  Let go of the victim mindset and know that even in this situation something good is happening.

 

  1. “Accept” what is happening in the moment, even though you’d like it to be different. Acceptance… not “fighting against” the illness brings peace, peace helps the body work better.  Acceptance doesn’t mean you are not working for change.

 

  1. Take time every day for a meditation practice.
    1. Learn to relax the body through breathing. The body heals when the body is relaxed.  Everything works better in a relaxed body. 
    2. Learn to relax and quiet the mind. This takes practice and a process.

 

  1. Make time for things and people you love. Re-order your values and where your time is spent.

 

  1. Forgive everyone and everything in your past.

 

  1. Visualize a healed body and what you will be doing when you feel better.

 

  1. Monitor your self-talk. Think positive thoughts of healing and what you’ll be doing when you’re well.  Create thoughts of self-love and self-admiration.

 

  1. When fear and anxiety hits you, sit it out, breathe through it, and remember it’s not what is happening now- “In this moment everything is OK.” As the fear subsides, start to put your attention on the good that is happening and affirm your health.

 

  1. Surround yourself in a positive, supporting healing environment.

 

  1. This is a call for self love.  Love yourself whole.

Is Life Good or What?

Yesterday, as I picked my seven-year-old granddaughter up from school, I asked her my habitual question, “How was your day?”

 

She rolls her eyes. “Not again!”

 

I argue. “But I LOVE to hear about anything from your day!”

 

“It’s the same thing as before. It was GOOD!” she replies. “It’s good every day!”

I want to be her.

 

It doesn’t matter what happened, who ate lunch with her or didn’t, the teasing boy or what was going on in class (I know there are those days), it’s the same answer, “It’s good every day!”

 

She teaches me.

 

How about just remembering that the day is “good,” even if things “go bump in the night?”

 

Part of this spiritual journey really is about learning to be a conscious participant in life and that our responses, reactions and experience of anything is ultimately our choice.

 

Be Present to What Is

One of the practices that serves me and others I work with well is the practice of being present to what is.

 

What does that mean?

 

Ultimately, knowing that our state of mind is of utmost importance, it becomes more joyful to flow with rather than fight life.

 

If I can accept this moment as it is without needing it to change for me to be happy and at peace, then I have found the secret elixir. This practice can reveal a life of happiness, no matter what happens.

 

For example, recently I had a day where one thing after another piled up on me that normally could have been cause for upset and turmoil.

 

First, a ridiculous hour delay, waiting in a line that should’ve taken five minutes. Then, a cutting and hurtful letter from a loved one, a financial downturn and “bad” news on a project. All in one day.

 

When the first delay appeared, I breathed into it and thought, “There is nothing I can do about this but wait. I might as well notice the things around me and enjoy “what is.“  Peace ensued.

 

After slowly reading the painful and cutting remarks of a dear loved one, I felt my heart cringe and my gut kicked. I remembered the line from Matt Kahn, “More love, not less.” I allowed the letter to be there. I recalled that it wasn’t my job to change her or the situation but it was a call for more love, not less, toward myself and my precious one. This is what is happening now. I don’t need it to change. Peace ensued.

 

As the financial hit surprised me and I went into fear immediately without choice, I soon remembered that this is what’s happening for now. I breathed. I remembered, “This is just a passing condition.” I want peace more than fear. I choose to accept what is happening in order to have peace, and from that peace, new and better solutions can arise. Peace ensued.

 

Things happen. Life does go “bump in the night,” and I know, all too well, it can be scary. Irritations arise but they are all passing states and experiences and, like the rough waters on the top of a lake on the windy day, the depth of the lake remains undisturbed.

 

Our ability to accept what is happening is our ability to go into the depths of the lake, the still part, no matter what storms may toss the surface.
All is well, no matter what.

Love on the Playground

I’ve been sneaking away.  Doing something I haven’t told very many people.  It’s a pretty special place…

It’s like an ashram- but not.  It’s like a love fest- of sorts.

I’ve never seen so much consistent love in one place.

It’s not like its new to me.  It’s not like I haven’t been there before.

In fact, the truth is, even though I’ve done this a thousand times in my life, I never even noticed it.

I admit it.  I’ve been quietly….

Taking my granddaughter, Isis, to school a couple of times a week.

This morning, as I was walking her in, I saw it.

There were SO MANY parents hugging and kissing their children goodbye.  Children waving back, running off, parents watching with those loving, longing eyes, with a soft prayer in their hearts for their kid’s safety.

I saw the teachers and all the dedicated staff at an elementary school whose entire work life is spent loving and caring for children.

That’s a lot of love in one place.  I could feel it.  It was palpable.  Love everywhere and thank heavens I opened up my eyes and saw it- right there in front of me.

I’ll bet, if I keep my eyes open I’ll see it even more.

Seems like the love- its right here in me.

As it is in you.

No matter what.

You are your own “love of a lifetime.”

See it.  Daily.  And I’m pretty sure you will also see the bliss in everyday experiences.

I AM. I CAN. 4 Steps to Moving Beyond Fear and Accessing Your Inner Power

You’re not alone.

I’ve woken up in the early morning hours with my mind running on and on about what “could” happen.

I’ve sat crippled and not taken action, simply because I was walking into unknown territory.

Yep.

Fear is crippling.

But fear is not what we’re made of. Fear is what the thinking-conditioned mind throws out at us- with the intention of keeping us safe. It means well.

“Thank you for sharing.” I’ll watch out for speeding cars and dangerous situations, but when fear is just getting in the way of my next great breakthrough it might be time to ‘see through it.’

4 Steps to Moving Beyond Fear and Accessing Your Inner Power

1. Stop.  Stop going down the path of fear, negativity, lack and separation. When the fear arises, admit it and don’t call it something else. Stop and breathe and admit it. Love that part of you that is afraid. You’re not alone. But still, stop. Don’t take big action when fear is guiding you. Deal with what’s up so you can turn that horse around before it starts gathering up all of its friends.

2. Hold On. It’s easier for a tree to hold on during a tornado if its roots are deep. What are you rooted in? Are you rooted deeply in your soul’s truth? When you know what lies within you, nothing can be against you. Your soul is unafraid. When we are more deeply rooted in Soul Principles then we can be strong.

3. Affirm. Affirm the truth. “I AM. I Can.” I Am is the truth of who we really are, we are a part of the great I AM – or the Divine Power. Because I know that I Am, I know that ‘I AM’ can! “I AM, I CAN” is a powerful affirmation. “I AM, I CAN!” And then- when we forget- “Oh Yes I AM and Yes I Can!

4.  Move on.  Take action in the direction of Life, Energy, Joy and Beauty. I begin to move in the direction of my health, greater life, joy, dreams…taking action in the direction with faith and conviction.

I stop the fear now and hold on to deeper truth, Infinite Life is operating in me attracting to me all that is needed. I move forward in joy and celebration, giving thanks in all ways!

The Art of Waiting

See the Video of this TALK!  Click here! 

Do you like to wait?

No one does.  Not really.  Whether its in a line, traffic or more importantly, waiting for your goals to manifest, your love to show up, or even your children to grow up?

The mind does not know how to wait, in fact it resists it altogether.  The western mind/lifestyle has an aversion to waiting.  Why?  We are goal driven, we are going somewhere, doing something, accomplishing something, and waiting simply means postponement.

It reminds me of the story of Nasruddin from India who had saved up to buy a new shirt. He went to a tailor’s shop, full of excitement. The tailor measured him and said, “Come back in a week, and–if Allah wills–your shirt will be ready.”

The Mullah contained himself for a week and then went back to the shop. “There has been a delay. But–if Allah wills–your shirt will be ready tomorrow.”

The following day Nasruddin returned. “I am sorry,” said the tailor, “but it is not quite finished. Trytomorrow, and–if Allah wills–it will be ready.”

Finally, “How long will it take,” asked the exasperated Nasruddin, “if you leave Allah out of it?”

When I was in India the practice of waiting was a daily occurrence—in fact, they called everything “India time.”

My first experience of this was during registration, which, by the way occurred two days after the conference started. We were sent to a room to sit down (in silence) and wait until our name was called to go register. We sat, over a hundred people in a room which held about 20 chairs, at 9 p.m. at night, waiting for our name to be called. At a snail’s pace, one name after another was called.

The more I sat and experienced this, the more irritated I became. It was taking entirely too long, and at this rate we would be there all night. Most of us were sitting on the hard floor, tired from jet lag, and I could feel the irritation in the room, as well. The longer I sat there, the angrier I became. I could have organized this much better, done the registration sooner, found a way to make it go faster, etc.

But alas, I was not in charge. Pretty soon, left to my own thoughts I began to notice my irritation.I began to watch my thoughts and you know what happens when you begin to watch your thoughts rather than just think them? You become detached from them, and they soon lose their ability to upset you. I watched my irritation, I watched my emotions and soon I began to relax into the present moment exactly as it was. I began to wait. In the conscious waiting, I began to experience the present moment fully as it was, and I began to be at peace. It was a wonderful lesson in the art of waiting.

PATIENCE= TRUST IN DIVINE TIMING AND DIVINE ORDER.
Impatience really is not trusting the Divine timing… not trusting Divine order.
“Hey, is anyone up there?  Is anyone listening?  God where are you?  This should be done by now!”  Does any of that sound familiar?
Our practice and experience of patience, or trust puts us in a receptive state of mind… In a receptive and peaceful mind, we ARE IN THE FLOW, where we are aligning with Divine Order. The Divine Order doesn’t inflict itself upon you.

There can be two simultaneous realities happening at any time…  upset, anger, frustration and you then can begin to attract one bad thing after another.   Or, you can trust the Divine timing, trust that Divine Order is taking place and live in the flow, where synchronocities take place and life unfolds with more ease and grace.

F-L-O-W with LIFE

From the Tao: 15th verse translated by Witter Bynner:
How can a man’s life keep its courseIf he will not let it flow?Those who flow as life flows knowThey need no other force:They feel no wear, they feel no tear,They need no mending, no repair.

F-aith in Divine Order
“Stop chasing your dreams.  What is yours will come to you when you aren’t trying to push the river.  Get in the flow of life and allow yourself to proceed gently down its stream.” Wayne Dyer’s book on the Tao.
Relaxing into the present moment and trusting that everything in life is proceeding as it should and a delay doesn’t mean anything more than, “its not time yet,” can reveal a life of Faith.  The more we relax into knowing that even through the ups and downs of life, Spirit is molding us into the ONE who lives Divine Purpose.

L-ong Term Perspective 
One way to develop patience is to develop a perspective that is above, outside of, and far beyond your normal day to day existence.  This allows you to view life from an elevated level, less affected by a day to day, short term view of life.
Standing at the sea shore… you’re seeing exact scene some other human saw long before you, maybe hundreds and thousands of years.   And maybe a thousand years in the future.
If you take a step back in your mind and observe your life up until now and over the next 20-30-40+ years and realize that whatever you’ve been worried about will be solved and then its easier to trust the moment as its appearing today.
“This too will pass…”
Looking back on my life as single mother for 12 years, I remember in the the middle of it, I thought it would never end… it was full of struggle and strain.  Looking back and seeing it as only one little piece of my life, I see the tremendous value in it, the way I grew and they grew.
I can be patient with a long term perspective. 
I can trust Divine Timing.

O-pen to the Divine Will for youPatience and trust requires that we stay Open.  How do you know that what’s happening is not the perfect thing?  Can you surrender and align with the Divine will?
Prayer from “Outrageous Opening by Tosha Silver:
 “Let what wants to come, come.  Let what wants to go go.  If it is mine.  It will stay, if not whatever is better will replace it.”

She also said, “Invoke God’s will for you, and you will never fear the movement of the stars again.”

ROSE BUD STORY

A young, new preacher was walking with an older, more seasoned preacher in the garden one day and feeling a bit insecure about what God had for him to do; about how he was to walk this path called ministry.  And so he was inquiring of the older preacher. The older preacher walked up to a rosebush and handed the young preacher a rosebud and told him to open it without tearing off any petals.

The young preacher looked in disbelief at the older preacher and was trying to figure out what a rosebud could possibly have to do with his wanting to know the WILL OF GOD for his life and for his ministry. Because of his high respect for the older preacher, he proceeded to TRY to unfold the rose, while keeping every petal intact…It wasn’t long before he realized how impossible it was to do so.Noticing the younger preacher’s inability to unfold the rosebud while keeping it intact, the older preacher began to recite the following poem…

UNFOLDING THE ROSE  …..

It is only a tiny rosebud, a flower of God’s design; But I cannot unfold the petals-   This flower of God’s design, Then how can I think I have the wisdom- To unfold this life of mine?

The secret of unfolding flowers is not known to such as I. GOD opens these flowers so sweetly,  When in my hands they fade and die.
If I cannot unfold a rosebud,This flower of God’s design, Then how can I think I have the wisdom to unfold this life of mine?
So I’ll trust in God for guidance   Each moment of every day.I  will look to God for wisdom   Each step of the rocky way. The pathway that lies before me,  Only Divine Spirit knows.So I’ll trust God to unfold the moments,   Just as God unfolds the rose.

W-illing to wait.
Imagine you are climbing the mountain.  The summit represents a experience of complete Oneness with God, or total enlightenment.  Through human effort you climb to a high meadow.  It is a beautiful place.  You can see things you have never seen before.  You think you have arrived at your goal, but eventually you realize this is not the summit.  The peak is shrouded in mist.  You cannot even see the trailhead which leads to the experience you desire.  At the high meadow, you must wait.  No amount of human effort will take you higher.  However, a woman is coming to show you the trailhead and to lead you higher.  Her name is GRACE.  Through waiting and God’s Grace, you are taken into the mist, into the mystery that is the Presence.
In this analogy, we climb to the High Meadow through the efforts we make in our spiritual growth.  Our affirmations, meditations and transformations.  During our climb to the High Meadow, this effort has been like a lifting wind taking us to a high state of HUMAN consciousness which feels good.  We are in a positive state of being, but we have not yet experienced true and lasting oneness with Spirit.  From here we can descend into the valley of negativity, or we can WAIT for Grace to come and take us higher.  The soul that waits, walks with God.  Grace comes in her timing, and takes us to the summit- pure oneness with God.

Grace cannot be rushed, grace cannot be forced, grace is the gift that is given, in its own right way, in its perfect Divine moment.

FROM THE BOOK, “A Closer Walk with Thee” by Jim Rosemergy, Unity Minister:
 “Teach us to wait.  The practice of prayer is primarily the art of waiting.”“We do not achieve a closer walk with God.  We can achieve many things in life, but an experience of the Presence does not come through our efforts.  God cannot be scaled as we climb a mountain.”  (or we will develop spiritual egotism… “I did this… I got close to God… oh I am so spiritual.”)  “Discipline and persistence are developed in the seeker and skills are learned, but WAITING is the primary skill to be masteredIt is like the rising of the sun.  We may beg and beseech, burn incense, and practice rituals, but these human efforts do not make the sun rise.  Basically, we must sit in the dark, face the east, and wait.  This assures us we will witness the sunrise, but it does not lift the velvet canopy of the night.”

“…But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31)

Practicing Patience allows us to live in the FLOW!

Listen now to Dr. Linda Sanicola’s Radio Show where I was the guest speaking on“Conformed to Love – Being a BONAFIDE LOVE PRO!  HERE

How to be a Bonafide LOVE PRO!

Wouldn’t you just love to be called,  “The World’s Greatest LOVER?”

Do you remember the movie Don Juan DeMarco?  The lead character (Johnny Depp) believed that he was Don Juan DeMarco, the world’s greatest lover…(he was put into a mental hospital, oh well.)

But the fact was… Everyone felt more love in his presence.  Everyone felt more of themselves in his presence.  He was in touch with himself as the world’s greatest lover and others were lifted up into the experience of love.
Could we be in touch within ourselves as the world’s greatest lover?  The love starts within us!  In order to give and receive love, it always starts with ourselves!

Making the Choice to be Bonafide Love Pro…

Love is not a relationship it is an attitude.

The Bonafied Love Pro recognizes that love is an inside job and finds ways to be in the experience of love regardless of who’s around!

7 Practices of being a Bonafide Love Pro:

  1. We become like that which we love. Fall in love with the Divine FIRST before others. 

Mother Teresa:  When asked how is it that she has been able to do so much in the world, she responded:  THAT she was so much in love with her beloved.  “Everywhere I go I see the face of my beloved…  I cannot do enough for my beloved and my beloved cannot do enough for me.”

  1. Speak LOVE in your mind until you feel it for yourself and for others. “Affirm Love”  My favorite, “Reveal the Love IN me,” and say it over and over.

“Love pours out of me.  I see Love everywhere I go.  I love you, etc.”

  1. Look for things to love, praise and give recognition of the good.  “I LOVE that!”

There are so many things to love and most of the time it goes unnoticed!  How about looking for what we love more than looking for what’s not working?  Just a thought.

  1. Resist needing all the planets to align to love.  (Or any other excuses) Just love for the sake of loving.  Practice loving.

So many times we are “saving” ourselves for the right circumstances to love someone.  What miracle must take place for us to open our hearts?  It takes practice.  If we don’t walk around in love now, what will make that change?  A person?  No.  Get the love inside first!

  1. Live in Gratitude, Open your heart, See the good.

Gratitude is the key to an open heart.  There is so much to appreciate!

  1. Attune to Beauty.  See it everywhere.  LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!

Everywhere we go, everywhere we are, there is something beautiful to behold, if our eyes and hearts are really open.Beauty is the high vibration of love made manifest in form!Don’t miss it! As you SEE it, you will align with it.(Beauty secret: See #1 again, “we become like that which we love! See your beautiful self!)

  1. Spend time with those who remind you that you are loved.

How wonderful it is to be around people that you feel safe with, feel loved by and are free to express yourself as you are!  Spend more time there!  And a good question to ask ourselves, “Do others feel loved when then are around you?”

A college professor had his sociology class go into the Baltimore slums to get case histories of 200 young boys.  They were asked to write an evaluation of each boy’s future.  In every case the students wrote, “He hasn’t got a chance.”  Twenty-five years later another sociology professor came across the earlier study.  He had his students follow up on the project to see what had happened to these boys.  With the exception of 20 boys who had moved away or died, the students learned that 176 of the remaining 180 had achieved more than ordinary success as lawyers, doctors and businessmen.    The professor was astounded and decided to pursue the matter further. Fortunately, all the men were in the area and he was able to ask each one, “How do you account for your success?”  In each case the reply came with feeling, “There was a teacher.”    The teacher was still alive, so he sought her out and asked the old but still alert lady what magic formula she had used to pull these boys out of the slums into successful achievement.    The teacher’s eyes sparkled and her lips broke into a gentle smile.  “It’s really very simple,” she said.  “I loved those boys.”

Bonafide Love Pro                                          By Chris Henry                              I’d rather go with Agape love Bro

And go to the Soul Center solo 

Use my 3rd eye as MY go pro 

While I meditate, straight with the Cosmos

Let my soul flow, freely, see me grow

Watch my soul compose Spiritual love prose, 

See how far my light can really go

Expose deep truths from the unknown

That my soul has always known

I AM Love, the words to this poem

I’ve never been alone  

The Last few Sunday’s I only “looked” alone

I AM Aligned with the ONE, 

The ONE who really knows 

I’d rather help souls grow

Into bonafide love pros, 

And see how far my light can really, really, really go!

For the ONE, the ONE who really knows

Soul Center equals BONAFIDE LOVE PROS

Who wants to be a Bonafide Love Pro?

And see how far the light can really, really, really go?
