Going in for the Win

I am grateful for everything that the year 2018 has brought so far. I am thankful for every lesson that I have learned and for every challenge that I have overcome. I am celebrating every loss that is setting me up to obtain more and better than I can even imagine. I am thankful for every set back that has prepared me to step up and see myself in a higher light. I am thankful for every tear that I’ve cried that has provided water for the seeds that I have so diligently planted. I am thankful for the pain that has fortified me to conquer the human experience with wisdom and purpose. I am so thankful for every fear that I have faced that has strengthened my faith. Even if I do not understand everything that has happened on my path I am trusting that everything is for my highest good seen and...

Divine She

If the future is black And the future is female Does that mean that I’m it? The future? Or does that mean That there’s some of that In each of us? The feminine has been suppressed Since way back whenever If we heal that energy We can all be better Oh but the future is black too? Yes as we honor the yin and the yang Both sides The dark and the light Is when we as a people shall rise But how can you find the light If it’s never been dark? How can you make it to the end If you never acknowledge your start? How can you travel to the future If you can’t be honest with your past? How much will you appreciate victory If you’ve never came in last? Can you heal the feminine without Healing the masculine? Can you keep up With the questions I’m asking? If you can’t it’s ok...

The Call
Inspiration Blogs

The Call

Imagine this. God gives you a vision with no blueprint of how to get there. You answer the call and you go on a journey. You think the journey is about physical manifestations. Then you find out that your job is to become the vessel designed to manifest that vision into the physical. From the beginning, it’s an inside job. “How can I serve You today? What would You have me to do? Show me how to lead others closer to You. Be my own example?” “Yes, my child that is the answer. You lead the way. The light is in you. Call on me so that I may shine through.” “Thank you God for answering my call I love you and I’m grateful for it all.” Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness and all things shall be added unto you.” Luke 17:20-...

Joy Really Does Come in the Morning

I really know what it means now when they said "Joy comes in the morning." I feel that in my bones on a new level. I'm not talking about the fake a smile, tell everyone its okay, and avoid my truth kind of joy. But the I went through something and I grew though something kind of joy. The kind of joy that I can now experience after appreciating "Purpose in the Pain" and accepting that "After the Pain Comes Power". This past week was challenging for me but I continued to fight. I love the human experience. It has this way of humbling you and fortifying you all at the same time. I'm grateful that the Creator's plan is perfect. It's another day Another piece of the journey I've been gifted with breath in my lungs And new opportunities for learning I am choosing to take advantage of the A...

15 Affirmations for Depression

In the spiritual sense, depression can have many deeply rooted causes. Some of those causes are: not being able to move on from the past resisting change believing that things should be happening differently and not accepting what is harboring resentment, regret, guilt, and shame deep in the subconscious not processing pain but instead attempting to mask it trying to mask who one truly is not answering to one's higher calling by avoiding it feeling and believing that one is not living up to their full potential I have felt and experienced all of the above at different times. Whatever the cause, depression lowers our vibrational state and we operate in lower energy fields bringing on sickness, attracting negative situations, and having poor mental, physical, and...

15 Affirmations for Anxiety

In one of my latest posts, I provided some methods that I have found helpful in managing anxiety. In the spiritual sense, anxiety can result from a lack of trust. This lack of trust shows up as a lack of trust in God, in self, in others, and in the process of life. Here are some affirmations that help me bring my mind into alignment with my spirit and reconnect with the Creator and all that is. I acknowledge that I am fearful regarding the future. I am choosing faith in the midst of my fears and moving forward with confidence, courage, and wisdom. I am choosing to return to the present moment and I am making the best of it. I am focusing on the here and now. I believe that life is unfolding exactly as it should. All things are working together for my highest good. I release m...

10 Natural Ways to Manage Anxiety

I grew up believing that mental illness and mental disorders only looked like straight jackets, prescription pills, and psychiatric hospitals, or the "crazy house" as those around me would say. This was partially due to images depicted on television. Another reason being the environment that I grew up in and seeing my family members suffer with mental health issues. It wasn't until a few years ago that I realized that mental health issues can appear in many forms. One of those forms being anxiety. Anxiety can look like the super woman of a mother that secretly obsesses over her small children eating the healthiest food and stresses about not having a college fund already in place even though they haven't started preschool yet. It can wear the face of the ambitious college student losing he...

Turn Your Light On

A friend gave us this cool lamp with a dimmer on it. I was eager to plug it up in our bedroom only to find out that it would not turn on. I got upset and didn't try to turn it on anymore that day. Days passed and I continued to try to get the light to work. I soon accepted that the lamp was broken. Almost four weeks later Spirit said, "Try the other plug", as I was passing by the lamp. I tried the plug directly underneath the one that I had tried before. The light came on! I got hype and screamed waking my husband up. The whole time I had been trying to get the light to work on my own when all I needed to do was utilize the correct plug. Often we give way to ego and become dependent solely on self. Ego influences you to try and take on life by yourself making your experiences more compl...
