Current Events & Stress

Hey! Hey! How are you doing today?

I would like to discuss current events and stress. Beware! I'm gonna get a little personal.

If you are watching the news and/or are on social media a lot, you may have noticed what seems to be a heightened stress response to all that is happening.

This is a very delicate subject because it is very real to many people. 

So, I begin with a prayer in my heart that I can and will help anyone release, and relieve any stress they are feeling.

With that said... stress is a physiological response that happens in our body when we sense fear. It is commonly known as the fight or flight stress response. Fear is what kicks in this response, which creates a very helpful bodily change when we are in a real stressful situation. The misfortunate thing about the stress response is that it can be, and is, activated by fearful thoughts when there is no true present danger. Therefore, although we may not be in true imminent danger, our fearful thoughts can, and do activate the stress response via anger and anxiety, which come from thoughts of doubt, fear, and worry.

Stress is the number one cause of every illness. Did you know that? If you are a regular reader of this blog, I'd venture to say you have had medical issues that are, or were, clearly from stress reactions. Consequently, you know exactly what I am talking about.

The stress response may give way for helpful hormones when in true danger but, these very same hormones create a toxic internal bath to the body, which are deadly to the chronically stressed.

The harm is in the thought. The hurt is in the belief, which is basically a thought that a person keeps thinking. 

Here comes the personal stuff...

I grew up with all brothers, and I have worked with 99.9999999% men throughout my entire career, and still do. I have suffered much and survived. The best part of the survival is, I am a thousand times better as a daughter of God, and as a person to humanity. That is my authority and power!

I have experienced nearly every kind of harassment you could possibly imagine that a female could experience in a male dominated career. The best part is I am better for it rather than bitter from it.

I've had a very stressful past, and I have learned much about my authority and power to choose to connect to God, and think what He would have me think of things. The lessons from God are in the struggle. The spiritual expansion, which is basically faith, and trust, are in the struggle.

Stressful events are very real, and the media, and social media are making them even more real. Stressful events have been around since Adam and Eve but now, with the coverage and internet they are more profound.

Here comes more personal stuff...

I had a dream the other night that my grandmother, who passed away over a decade ago, came to me and said, "Acknowledge and appreciate the good that you do. Many say that there are no more good people in the world. Be a good person, and prove that there are still good people in the world. Part of being a good person is acknowledging and appreciating the good you do, the good others do, and the good people in the world." 

She also said, "Put that in your blog."

Crazy! I know! But if your Grandmother came to you in a dream and told you to put it in your blog, you'd put it in your blog, wouldn't you?

What I am trying to say in all of this ramble is, we all have the authority and power to choose what we will acknowledge and appreciate, and whatever we choose to focus on will make us better or bitter.

You have health, love, and wealth. 

You have legs to walk on, arms to hug with, and eyes to savor your loved ones.

You have love in your heart to give to yourself, so that you may share it with others.

You have food on the table, a roof over your head, and family and friends that love you.

The most important things in this world are not necessarily things. The most important things are our authority and power to love, and lift, and to make this world a better place so that we can prove to all who can, and will see, there is much good here.

God is very real!

God is very much in charge!

Our focus on the good, on God, will heal our world. When we have healed our world, we can heal the world that walks before us on a daily basis by loving and lifting.

Like Grandma said, "Acknowledge and appreciate the good that you do, the good that others do, and the good people in the world."

"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." ~1 Thessalonians 5:18, KJV

Hocus, pocus, focus...

We have the authority and power to choose our focus.

We have the authority and power to practice this focus into nearly perfect permanence, and as we do, we can, and will become better rather than bitter. 

We can destress!

The harm is in the thought, and the hurt is in the belief, which is just a thought we keep thinking often by default.

Our desires are a seed from the soul to do better for our very own health, love, and wealth.

God bless you my friend.

It is my everlasting, humble prayer that you can and will see the good that you do.

I love you...

Speak soon...

Happiness IS Success

Hello there...

Happiness and Success to Destress is the topic of this day.

How are you doing my friend?

I'm ever praying for you. For your happiness, joy, and vitality.

In recent posts I've written about Meditation, Affirmations, and Visualizations because I know the importance of using the authority we have to guard the gate of our mind, and thoughts, so that we may be thoughtful in our actions. Unfortunately the human conditioning trains us up to react in habitual, thoughtless ways to situations around us, which creates habits of negative emotions. It is our training.

You must know that we are born pure love, loving to learn, listen, love, and understand but then the human conditioning trains us to compare ourselves with others, and focus on what is wrong in life by complaining about, and criticizing others, ourselves, and things.

I have learned in my journey in life that everyone wants to love but some have a misunderstanding in that they are taught love is conditional and comes from others. I misunderstood this too. 

The real truth is love comes from within, and from a connection to God.

When a person discovers the truth about love, and that it is in us to give, he or she can, and will find true happiness. That happiness is success.

Think about that for a moment.

Think about this... anything anyone wants, cars, degrees, homes, lovers, money, and/or titles, it is because they believe it will make them happy. The thing is, where ever you go, there you are. Meaning, if you are happy or unhappy these things you want will enhance the happiness or the unhappiness.

I know people with everything! All of it! And they are miserable because they bitch, and complain, and criticize, and then people have no desire to be around them. When people do not want to be around them, it just gives them more reason to be unhappy.

I know people with everything, or nothing, and they are the happiest people in the Universe because they are confident and connected to God.

Do you want more?

Could it be that you just want to be happy?

If you can see that happiness is success, and you want to be happier, love yourself enough to begin the retraining of your brain to destress your life and please consider meditating, affirming, and visualizing by desire.

You are the most important person in your life, and if you want more happiness, you can choose to use your authority and power by choosing to guard the gate of your thoughts. You have the power to choose to think better thoughts about and for you. We are intelligent beings and just because we have not been trained to focus by desire doesn't mean we can't.

It is my prayer that you appreciate and love yourself, and your life, enough to do a little work on your mind to bring you more happiness, and more success if that is what you want. If you do not believe you can, maybe you could try to believe a little more in you.

I am a witness to loving life, and to being a confident connection to God by using my authority and powers. If I can train myself, and help others to do it, you and I can help you too, if that is your desire.

The only real advice I have for you, for anyone is that you are doing really, really, really good, and if you don't know that you are, it is because you are not focused on or looking for the good that you do.

That is all...

Except, I love you, and I am ever praying for you. Never doubt that!

Spiritual Expansion


Well Hey There!

Spiritual Expansion is the topic of this day.

How are you doing my friend? My dear sweet friend.

It is my prayer that you are feeling calm, confident, and connected to God.

In my last post, Training Your Brain to Destress, I offered the affirmation, "God loves me, God cares for me, and He is giving me all good things for my spiritual expansion."

Spiritual expansion is always greater/increased confidence/faith, which is basically love. 

"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." ~1 John 4:18, New Testament, The Holy Bible, KJV

I love that scripture so much!

Spiritual expansion is relearning the love that we are. The love that we came into this world being, and that was cast out by conditioning. 

Hate is the opposite of love, and so it must be fear. I never say the "H" word except when I am teaching about it because I have no hate. Therefore, there is no reason to use that word. Nevertheless, hate is taught to us, and grows with practice. It is a powerful emotion, and word but love is above it. 

Love is above it all.

Love is for giving to the self, and to others.

It is my humble opinion that people who hate, have a certain hate for themselves, and it is displayed outward towards others, and certain things. 

Hate is the strongest negative emotion there is, and love is the strongest energy there is.

Do you love yourself?

Crazy question, I know! But the craziest part is that if you dislike, or even hate yourself, you are not only breaking your future and life, you are draining your energy.

What I am trying to say in all of this ramble is that God does love you, God does care for you, and He is giving you all good things. Anyone can, and will see this if he or she is willing to stop hating, and start looking for the lesson in the things they proclaim to hate.

In my humble opinion, the lesson is always faith, love, and patience usually towards the self. The lesson truly is exquisite focus on trusting God.

It is human nature to focus on what is wrong, for example: 

A person may hate themselves because they aren't good looking enough, rich enough, slim enough, smart enough, or young enough and so he or she is so extremely focused on that hate, they are too busy to appreciate what they are, and what they have.

Appreciation is the truth. 

Appreciation feels so very close to love, and when we focus exquisitely on what we love, we can and will feel so much more joy.

There is so much more good in this world than there is bad, and so no one can say that I am asking anyone to ignore the bad, I am just saying focus on what is right!

Appreciation is the key!

Love is the truth!

With exquisite focus on appreciation and love for others, and the self, anyone can and will expand spiritually.

You just gotta practice, and never give up!

Affirm and remind yourself of it daily, hourly, and moment by moment.

I have a very joyful life, and it is all because of God, and the blessing from practicing appreciation, love, and never giving up on God or me, EVER!

Connecting to God is a constant practice, and that is my authority and power in which I choose.

We have a choice, and if you do not believe you do, you just may not believe in you.

If you do not believe in you, you just may not appreciate and love yourself enough to.

That's all I got my friend!

Appreciation and love for God, for life, and for you!

Hocus, pocus, focus!

Practice makes perfect permanence!

That's what life is all about!

God bless you my dear friend. 

Ever praying for your calm, confidence, and connection to God. That is the healing.

That is my passion, my purpose in serving the Lord. 

May God bless you with more authority and power to focus on your benefits and blessings.

Speak soon...

Training Your Brain to Destress

Well hello there...

How are you doing this day?

Are you angry, anxious, depressed, irritable, or moody?

If you are, read on, and hopefully this post will help you.

Years ago, when I began helping people with stress, a few wives sent their husbands to me in hopes that I could help them.

These men were the first one's outside of the Emergency Field or Military that I assisted.

One of them actually told me that he was cooperative in seeing me due to the threat of divorce from his wife.

Back then, the economy was bad, and everyone of these individuals was afraid of the future, which is basically stress. Stress shows up mostly via anger and anxiety in men, which displays as irritability and moodiness. Nevertheless, all of it was fear of the future, and when we are afraid, the stress response kicks in, we lose control, and our family, and health suffers. 

These men were big money makers, and smart enough to know that what ever they did can and will affect their family and future. Each one of them wanted improvement because their family, especially their wife, was a priority, and very important to them.

We focused on meditation, affirmations, and visualizations.

As human beings we are trained up to be afraid and discouraged because of what might happen, and this creates a racing mind. The remedy for a racing mind is meditation because it quiets the mind, which is the opposite. A quiet mind gives confidence, safety, and security.

Also as humans, our fearful thoughts gives us unsupported vocabulary of discouragement like, "I'm so overwhelmed, and I don't think I can handle this." These thoughts and words lead to insecurity. These thoughts and words are unhelpful affirmations by default. The remedy for hurtful phrases by default are intentional phrases by desire like, "I am doing very well under the circumstances, and I can handle whatever comes my way because I always have and I really don't have a choice." You may not believe that affirmations work, but you have a choice, default or desire.

Another thing we do by default, as humans, is visualize. Do you know that all three of these gentlemen were visualizing the worst possible outcome just by habit? That's what stress does to us. Stress makes us afraid of the future especially because we think of, and visualize in our mind, the absolute worst possible thing that can happen.

Some people say that fear is good because it makes us move forward. I do not believe this to be true. What if the habit of fear makes a person move forward only some of the time, and immobilizes their actions the majority of the time? 

Stress promotes and sustains insecurity. 

No one wants insecurity.

What if a person could replace the awful habit of being afraid of the future with calm, confidence? It's absolutely possible for anybody to practice confidence and overcome insecurity but he or she must be consistent and never give up.

If you have practiced anger, anxiety, and depression for twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, or more years, it may take a while to overcome these habits. But certainly worth it!

I understand that people may believe that the anger, anxiety, and/or depression is not in his or her control. I get that! I hear it all the time, and I actually believed it too. Not only did I believe it, I argued for it. But now, having changed myself, and helped the numerous people that I have in healing, I know without a doubt that if I can overcome negative emotions, anyone can!

The way to heal is to recondition, and retrain your brain to destress. 

Meditation for healing the doubt, fear, and worry of the racing mind, and intentional affirmations and visualizations for habits of creating confidence, are the keys to relieve stressful behaviors, and beliefs.

Try this...

Everyday for at least thirty days, do these three things...

1) Go to a quiet uninterrupted environment, at the same time everyday, sit up, and focus on your breath and/or heart beat for at least five minutes. If you find that too difficult sit and focus on the sounds of this meditation video. Then, through out the day, bring yourself to that calm, quiet, and relaxed state as often as you can remember to. That's called practicing, and it is very helpful to practice any destressing habit into permanence. 

A calm, quiet, and relaxed body, and mind create a peaceful soul, and oh what a blissful life it makes.

2) Memorize this affirmation, and repeat it in your mind, all day, and everyday "God loves me, God cares for me, and He is giving me all good things for my spiritual expansion." But don't just repeat it, contemplate it, and watch yourself focus more intentionally towards your faithfulness towards you.

3) When you feel anxious or nervous about anything, ask yourself, "What would be the perfect outcome for this situation I am concerned/worried about?" And try to cultivate the habit of visualizing the best outcome. This is visualizing by desire, and if you do it often enough, you can, and will replace the default of the fearful future mentality with the desired outcome mindset. 

You cannot tell the future whether you are optimistic, or pessimistic, but you can build your confidence.

All three of these habits can and will assist with confidence, which is the opposite of insecurity, which is basically stress.

Another thirty day challenge.

I'm just trying to point you in the direction of healing, and relieving the negative emotions that come due to years of practiced stressful habits. If that's what you want, then make a commitment to do the proposed exercises and retrain your brain to destress.

It's all up to you, and it's all about you...

and your family...

and your future...

and your happiness...

and your health...

and, believe it or not, your wealth as well...

Big Hugs Friend!

I'm praying for you!

I'm praying for your confidence and faith in you!

God bless you!!!

Destress Quickly Via Visualization

Hey! Hey!

How are you doing today?

I hope and pray you are loving life!

In a post I wrote about a month ago, Do You Have an Open Mind, I mentioned I would write about Meditation, Affirmations, and Visualization Techniques. In my recent posts, I've discussed Meditation and Affirmations, and now I want to give a quick Visualization Technique on how to destress.

This visualization technique will destress yourself quickly, sound good?  This exercise works wonders when you are really ticked off at someone, or they are causing you a whole lotta stress. 

Here we go...

Find yourself in a quiet, uninterrupted environment, for at least 5 minutes.

Take a deep breath in through your nose, and exhale through your mouth while you imagine all the tension leave your body.

Now, imagine yourself in the most beautiful, serene, and quiet paradise with a water fall.

Got it?

Now, imagine yourself slowly entering the tempered water pool that is created by the waterfall.

Take a deep breath, and then imagine yourself wrapping your hands around that person's neck, the person that is getting on your last nerve, that person that is causing you the most grief in your life right now, and dunk their head into the water, and hold them there.  As you let them up, ask them if they are going to get off your back.  As they beg for your forgiveness, and tell you that they will never do it again, dunk their head again.

When you let them up, tell them, "From now on you will address me as King/Queen of the world."  And as they agree, let them go, and walk away.

LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL!!!

You know that is funny!  You cannot deny the funnyness of that! 

Ha Ha Ha!  I am still laughing.

There you go!  How to destress yourself quickly with visualization, the only way, with a laugh.

WARNING!!!  DO NOT DO IT FOR REAL!!!  It just won't be funny.

Disclaimer...  If you do it for real, it is not my fault, I told you not to.

I love you!  I really do!

Have a lovely, lovely week.

Stay tuned for more on meditation, affirmation, and visualization techniques.

Happy Fourth of July

Hello there...

How are you doing this day?

I am hoping and praying for you!

Hoping and praying you are alright, you are happy, and you are having fun!

I just wanted to say Happy Fourth of July to you, and I pray you have a most beautiful holiday!

It has been over a week since I have written here, and I have excuses...

But that doesn't really matter. 

What matters is that it is summer, here in the United States, and stress is very low this time of year because people are spending time with family and friends, and enjoying themselves.

That's what life is all about! 

Life is about enjoying family and friends!

If you are not having a good time in life, I just want to say, I understand. I've been there. 

The most important things you can do, if you are having a hard time are...

Connecting to God 

Learn to relax through Meditation 

Increase Habits of Faith

One reason I blog is because I know in reading about destressing yourself there is relief. With that said, I shared a few posts above that may help if you are not enjoying life, and to let you know I am still here. 

God bless you! 

God loves you!

I love you! [insert heart hands and me smiling at you here]

Hang in there! And never give in or give up!

There is relief and respite from anything you are going through... I know that this is so, and I know it with all of my heart and soul.

Speak soon my friend.

Reminding Yourself to Destress

Hey! Hey! 

Reminding yourself to destress with purposeful affirmations is the topic of this day...

How are you doing my dear friend?

Hoping and praying you are doing okay.

One thing I know for sure is that we, as spiritual beings having human experiences, have great authority and power over our behaviors and beliefs. I know that this is so because I have learned, and keep learning, this lesson of what we are capable of.

I believe, with all my heart and soul that anyone can change! Everyone changes! The goal is to change for the better though, right?

Anyone can change by overcoming addiction, anger, anxiety, depression, and despair. I know that this is so, and I know it because of my personal and professional experiences. Millions of people change emotionally, mentally, and physically, for the better, every day!

A great way to improve upon any negative behavior or belief we have, is to watch carefully our phrases of affirmations. Affirmations are basically reminders, and they may be intentional or unintentional. When they are intentional we can be more in control of our beliefs and behaviors. To govern our phrases and vocabulary is to govern our reality because words have power!

Some phrases and words that I have eliminated from my thoughts and verbalization are difficult, fat, hard, hate, and tired.

I use to say things like, "Life is so difficult, I'm so fat, this or that is so hard, I hate this or that, and I'm so tired." The reason I have eliminated these so called affirmations/reminders from my life is because I know the power of the subconscious mind. Whatever we believe, the body and mind comply.

Not only does our body and mind cooperate with our thoughts and words but, there is a lot of fear in those statements, and fear is the drainer of confidence and energy. Fear is stress, and so stress is actually the drainer of confidence and energy.

Affirmations become our beliefs, and if we govern our affirmations, we can, and will govern our beliefs a little bit more each day.

This is not faking it until you are making it, or pretending, this is choosing beliefs via exquisite focus. We are intellectual beings, and we can choose what we focus on intentionally rather than by default. This is leveraging the subconscious mind to work in our favor.

Whatever you want, you can and will move towards it if you govern your faith and focus a little bit more. 

So, the question is, what do you want?

Do you want better health?

Do you want love?

Do you want wealth?

Alls you gotta do is govern your thoughts and words towards what you want a little bit more, and you can and will see changes for the better.

Let's say you want more positive emotion, or maybe more mental focus, or maybe more energy. Just take a moment and think about your thoughts and verbal affirmations that are holding you in the place you do not want.

For example, saying things like, "I'm so anxious, angry, or depressed. I have a hard time remembering things. I'm so drained, fatigued, or tired," will keep you exactly right there, where your words proclaim.

If you are saying things similar to those mentioned above, your subconscious mind is complying by solidifying the thoughts you keep thinking into deep unwavering beliefs. These strong beliefs are activated and created by you my friend.

I know that any belief can be changed by changing the way we think about things.

Regular negative affirming can be changed by consciously choosing better words. 

I have learned to say things like, "I am relaxed, I can handle this, I can handle anything, I am doing really good, I can practice anything into permanence, or I got this!"

Do you see how encouraging yourself with your affirmations can, and will make a difference in your life if you but choose to speak and think better about yourself? This is really quite brilliant because the world teaches us to be afraid and to discourage ourselves and others. This is just playing a more active role in our own training.

This is taking an active role in living with confidence, ease, and grace rather than anger, anxiety, depression, or despair.

Destressing yourself with affirmations/reminders is a really great way of taking charge in your own part of getting better and better at life versus getting more bitter. We can choose you know? We can choose what we want to be for ourselves and then be that, what we want. That choosing is our authority, power, value, and worth.

The best way to actively use affirmations, in order to destress, is to first begin a practice of meditation, which I wrote about in my last post, and you can read it by clicking here. 

Meditating, is a practice that will help an individual with focus, and with quieting the mind. Meditation can and will assist an individual in becoming more aware of the negative affirmations that are holding him or her in a stressful state of being.

So, if you wanna destress a little bit more, and if you wanna level up in life a little bit more, decide what you want, believe that you can accomplish it, create an affirmation that will confirm that belief, and state it often, over and over again. If you do this, you can just watch yourself evolve a little bit more. I'd do it for thirty days, at least, and if it works, which I believe it will, keep on a doing it.

Don't forget to meditate daily because it will enhance the change.

What say you?

You can do it!

Praying you will do it for you!

Have a great weekend, and stay tuned for more direction, and guidance on using meditation, and affirmations to destress.

God bless you my friend...

Speak soon...

Why Meditation?

Hello...


Why I meditate and why I want to teach the world to meditate are the topics I wanna ramble about this day.

How are you? Summer is here in the United States, and people are busy, busy, busy.

When people are busy, busy, busy they tend to get momentum of the hurry-up disease, which causes anxiety and the lack of awareness of self, and others.

When I was a young single mother I was always busy, and I had the hurry-up disease momentum. This hurry-up disease has no mercy on the soul. The habit of being in a hurry does not allow for time to think about others, or actions of the self because the focus is to hurry and get things done.

Let me tell you about my actions when I had the hurry-up disease. My most prevalent behaviors were anger, anxiety, complaining, criticism, debt, depression, drama, exhaustion, inappropriateness, insecurity, insomnia, irritability, moodiness, negativity, overeating, and worry. Just to name a few ~wink, wink~

All of these habits I mentioned, I call addictions because an addiction, in my mind, is something a person believes he or she cannot quit. Individuals get so good at practicing a particular behavior they tend to live with a belief that they cannot quit that behavior.

Some people believe they have to hurry, hurry, hurry. Some people believe they cannot quit their anger, their anxiety, their depression, their despair, their moodiness, or their worry. No matter the action, it's just like an addiction, a person has to want to quit, and begin to believe he or she can, in order to find change.


Practice makes habits of permanence, whether they are thoughts, feelings, or actions!


Connecting to God, and meditating has helped, and still does help me lessen the negative behaviors I speak of above. I have been meditating since 1999, and I have, I believe, eliminated much of the negative addictions/behaviors of my past. Most of all, I have eliminated anger, anxiety, depression, and despair.

If something even tries to annoy me within seconds I giggle because God, and meditation have taught me that when I quiet my mind I realize that life is not as serious as I use to make it out to be.

Please believe me when I say, I know that I am human, and not perfect therefore, I keep practicing daily because I do not believe one can, or does become perfect without negative beliefs and behaviors. Practicing into permanence is more of what life is about rather than perfection. When we make things permanent we leverage the habitual human behavior.

Meditation is simply, the quieting of the mind, which gives awareness to the thoughts, feelings, and actions of the self, and a greater connection to God.  This awareness, and connection allows one to recognize the negative thoughts, feelings, and actions and intentionally change them to more enlightening, inspiring, motivating, and positive thoughts, feelings and actions.

The quiet mind allows one to practice the feelings of calmness, confidence, relaxation, and safety, which are the very opposite of stress.

I have meditated for twenty years, and I know no one, personally, with more consistent joy than me. I do not say that to brag, I say that to convince you of the fantastic joy God and meditation has brought me.

Now, God, and this joy I speak of have brought me out of the depths of despair, and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Now I am the very opposite person of whom I was 27 years ago (that's half my age by the way). That my friend, is the greatest thing of them all because I was misery much of the time, and now I am in bliss the majority of the time.

I love life!

Could you imagine deep, deep, deepest moments of despair to the point of not wanting to live, and then becoming so in love with life? That question right there is a primary reason I write this blog in hopes to help my brother or sister here on earth. To help anyone I can, go from misery to joy.


The very act of moving from misery to joy is why I want to teach the world to meditate!


Could you imagine someone (possibly you) living in constant crisis, or even periodic crisis, discovering meditation, making it a practice, and then never knowing or even experiencing crisis again? Could you imagine being in a state of confidence no matter what happens because you know how to remain calm and connected to God?

I have talked thousands of people out of the state of anxiety, and the way I did it was by remaining calm, and talking them through quieting their body, mind, and soul. Quieting others like that is something a person can do for themselves, on a regular basis, and through a regular meditation practice.

I have talked to many suicidal individuals, and I did it from a calm place, pointing them towards calming themselves, and to the faith they have in themselves, life, and others. Building on faith comes from a connection to God and a meditative mind of relaxation and feeling secure.


It may sound like I am boasting, and I am but, I do not boast of myself, I boast of God, and a practice of meditation.


All of that calming and faith is much more complicated than just a few words of explanation. But, I know no other way than connecting to God, and a regular meditation practice that creates the success of bringing the self, as well as other people from crisis to calm. There is no way I could have ever done what I have done, and still do, for others, and myself, if it weren't for my connection to God, and my meditation practice that enhances that connection.

I shall meditate until the end of my days because life just gets better and better.

I shall teach people to meditate until the end of my days because I see more and more success.

So... that, my friend is why I meditate and want to teach the world to meditate.

The best part is, meditation doesn't take long at all. Five minutes a day is where anyone can begin. That five minutes can, and will help anyone bring that quiet mind to full force of the present moment at anytime and anywhere.

You can begin by listening to the five minute meditation video I created by clicking this link here. The only thing required is focusing on the sounds. You can have your eyes closed or open. It's a start. Every journey begins with one simple step, eh?

I pray that I have inspired you to meditate so that you may develop a calm, certain, and confident mind, so that you may learn what a constant state of relaxation, safety and security feels like, and eliminate any anger, anxiety, depression, or any other negative emotion, especially despair.

Warning! Warning! Warning!

Once you meditate you can never go back!

What I mean by that is, if you begin to meditate you will become so aware of your beliefs and behaviors that when you continue the meditation, life just gets better and better and better because you become more connected to God. That connection to God becomes very clear via guidance and inspiration toward others, you, and your future. 

When a person meditates he/she begins to feel so good that if that person stops the meditation practice, the negative emotions experienced in the past become so much more intense. It is my personal opinion that when an individual discontinues a meditation practice, the negative emotion becomes so much more profound because the feeling good, from meditation, was so powerful. That contrast can, and will be so clear that anyone would long for that distinct good feeling place.

It takes practice for anything to become permanent and so one must continue meditation to remain in that good feeling place of a calm, clear, confident connection to the true self and God.

That connection, my friend, is very real, and that is exactly why I will meditate to the end of my days, and quite possibly beyond. 

There is not one thing more important to me than being connected to God! There is not enough money, recognition, or titles in the world more important to me than knowing, talking, and walking with God. I've been asking for that closeness and connection for the whole of my life! And, if you feel the same way too, you will learn to, and make time for meditation.

Have a wonderful weekend, and week ahead.

Take good care!

Hug, hug, hug...

I love you...

Do You Have an Open Mind?

Hello! Hellol!

How to destress yourself with an open mind is what I want to talk about today. 

Hey, hey!  How are you?  I hope you are having the time of your life, I really do.

In my last post I wrote about 
The Three Most Important Things When Destressing Despair.

Did you happen to read it?

The first thing, of the three, is having an open mind. So, I thought I'd just discuss that a little bit.

Do you believe you have an open mind?

When an individual has an open mind, he or she wants to learn, and listens for possibilities, is teachable, and willing to try new things. 

When an individual has a closed mind, he or she may not necessarily be open to information that may be a healing help to them.

The healing help I am talking about is the journey to happiness. Happiness is healing the emotional hurt, and emotional hurt is negative emotion.

When a person is angry, anxious, depressed, and/or in despair he or she may be suffering and unhappy.  

When a person is unhappy, what he or she is doing is probably not working, and having an open mind can, and will assist in the possibilities of new things that can, and will relieve the sorrow.

Do you believe you have an open mind?

Are you willing to try something new that may possibly enhance your life for you?

Do you believe your life needs enhancing?

Some people believe their life needs enhancing, and some people don't.

I'm here to help those who want an enhancing. ~wink~

But if you don't want an enhancing, I say, and think that's cool too...

Have you ever meditated?

Have you ever created and applied affirmations?

Have you ever visualized what you really want out of life?

The reason I ask these questions is because I preach meditation, to quiet the anxious and worried mind, affirmations, to assist in new habit forming, and visualizations for inspiration and self motivation.

Some people struggling with negative emotions are unwilling to try any of the things mentioned above because sometimes people who are having a hard time with despair have shut down to learning new things, which is basically closing the mind.

Are you willing to open your mind and destress yourself by trying new things?

Are you willing to destress yourself by practicing meditation?

Are you willing to destress yourself by applying affirmations that will assist in creating new habits?

Are you willing to destress yourself by visualizing what you want, in order to overcome the stressful habits of doubt, fear, and worry?

If you said yes to these questions, awesome! 

If you said no to these questions, and you are distressed, then chances are, you may have a closed mind to hope.

Could you consider new things like learning to meditate, create affirmations, and visualize?

I have meditated, affirmed, and visualized for years now, and it is the most effective goal obtaining enhancers in the world.  Trust me on this one!

Everyone affirms and visualizes. Did you know that? The worried person affirms and visualizes his or her doubts and fears by default. I'm suggesting to set the intention of affirming and visualizing by desire, and meditation helps with that process.

I have clients who have learned to meditate, affirm, and visualize, and they have made explosive jumps in their personal and professional performance.

What do you think?

I kid you not, this stuff is amazing, you just have to be willing to try something new to change your life from stress to destress, if you think you need to.

If you have never meditated, affirmed, or visualized intentionally, and are unwilling to do such for yourself, thinking this stuff won't help your despair, or unhappiness for that matter, you may have a closed mind. Part of that closed mind comes from the  unwillingness to do anything for the self. When we are unwilling to do anything for the self, the next step is to work on believing in the self.

If you don't have a lot of faith in yourself, and you do open your mind to trying new techniques, you may just begin to see your real value, and your real worth. When a person realizes his or her value and worth, he or she begins to believe in the self more.

When a person learns to believe in his or herself, that person begins to discover his or her true capabilities and power. Then, that person begins to open his or her mind even more, knowing that he or she is the only one who can make his or her life an amazing one or a suffering one.

What I am trying to say in all of this ramble is, an open mind will get you somewhere you want to be and if your mind has been closed off to new things you may want to try something new like meditation, affirmations, and visualizations.

If you do want to open your mind a little bit more and try, please stay tuned for the next posts on how to apply the meditation, affirmation, and visualization techniques.

Okay dokay pokay?!?

Have a great day!  

Have a great week!  

I love you Sugah!
