“Faith And Fear Cannot Exist At The Same Time”
Much of our day, our year, our human existence is based in the feeling of fear. Most of us believe in a greater power, a reason for being here. If we believe in a God, then we should be connecting with faith, which will replace fear altogether. I realize this is a hard one, and definitely a lesson for us while on this Earth. Faith does not have to replace common sense, but it can replace the fear of the unknown, fear of what has yet to happen, and the fear of being ones true self. You are a piece of the Divine, a spark of light from the bigger whole. Once you realize this, you can be free to stand in your power and trust in your purpose, allowing God to lead you through a life meant just for you. When you let go of trying to control outcomes and trust that everything in life is happening for your growth, then faith will become more natural, squeezing out the fear your once felt. God is always in the background guiding us along, we just need to quiet the mind long enough to hear his gentle whispers.
I work in a domestic violence shelter for those of you who do not know, and one of my residents brought a realization to my attention yesterday that I would like to share.
She told me that she uses her outside world to gauge how she is feeling in her inside world. What she said was that if her home is a chaotic disaster then it is a cue for her to stop and ask herself what is going on. She realizes that our outside experiences mirror how we are feeling on the inside. I have known this for some time now and looking back at times when my house was cluttered and trashed were exactly the times when I was completely out of balance. Pay attention to the chaos around you and then ask yourself “How am I feeling today?”
Learning and sharing ideas never ceases to take place, as long as you are open and willing!
When was the last time you had this much fun? Kids have it right, they know how to have fun, no matter what is going on around them. They get lost in the moment, not worrying about what will happen tomorrow, or even 5 minutes from now. Children stand in their authenticity, without realizing it, as there is no other way of being. They have yet to be tainted with the voices of society; telling them that they are not enough. By the time adult- hood comes, we have had years of brainwashing as to who we should be and what we should do. We need to tap back into our inner-child, as that is exactly who God made you to be. Who are you? What makes you happy? That person still exists; he/she is still in there. Stand in your power, the power of who you were gifted to be. Have a child-like Saturday and do what makes YOU happy!
Let your life be a shining example for others. Let everything you do be in service to someone. Stand tall in the knowledge of who you are. Stand proudly in the midst of difficult times. Be aware that who you are and what you have to offer can be a beacon to some lost soul.~ Iyanla Vanzant
Anyone can be a beacon of light, no matter what job you do. It does not take moving mountains to help others, a smile at a stranger and a kind word may have been exactly what they needed on a day when they were down. We are all transmitting who we are out into the world, the positive and negative. Take responsibility for your energy and your position here on this earth. We are all here as messengers of a higher power, call it God, the Divine, or what have you. Everyone is looking for purpose in life, a reason for being and a reason to continue on through the difficult times. Purpose cannot be found in selfishness and ego, as that can only leave you empty. Purpose will be found in the service to others, as that it what our soul came here for. Blessings for a beautiful day!
Super Soul Tuesday for me! Since I am not working to help others succeed in their lives today, I will go and walk by the lake and feed my own soul. We all need times to just be, to sit in nature and hear our inner-selves, as that is where peace and happiness comes from.
