Love Thursday: Love the Artist

Life is your canvas and you are the paint and brush. Let go and have fun with the beautiful ray of colors that you are.

It's so easy to put on the brakes of life because of doubt, fear, worry and confusion. All the colors blend on the canvas and it is sometimes difficult to tell what is the base color or how many layers of color we need to remove in order to get clarity. The beautiful and magical idea is that we go through this process so that we can sort through the "situation" because we are in fact the very thing that is so colorful! We are the colors of life! We are life! Let go of pre-conceived ideas, perceptions and egos and just Be in the beauty that you are.

Our canvas of life display our own unique and incredible piece of work. Why, because we are beautiful souls and if we can just let go and let the Infinite Peace inspire us - work through us - be us - we shall become Masters of Art. We are the artist of life!

Se'Lah at Necessary Room

Garlic - The Natural Antibiotic

Through my limited experience of healing via the holistic path, I continue to be reminded of how exceptional Mother Earth is in providing all that we need to sustain a high quality and peaceful life and for this, I belly up with gratitude for knowing!

First, let me explain that I do believe (and know for myself) that diseases can be emotionally based, which means that strong emotions and thoughts cause toxins in our bodies (stress) that over a period of time, in some cases, causes disease. We must rid our bodies of these toxins through diet, mediation, prayer, and forgiveness.

I suffer greatly from sinus pressure, sinus infections and sinus issues overall. As Louise Hay explains in her book, "You Can Heal Your Life," any type of sinus problems result in deep irritation of something or someone. In my case, this is VERY true! Some people say, "That is not true. We have no control over hay fever, flowers, and grass that irritate our sinus area." My response, "Then why do some have it and some do not have it? Some people's immune systems can fight the symptoms and others can't." I don't say this to convince you of anything other than to express that if you or having any type of ailment that is hindering you from your true purpose in this Universe, consider the level of emotions and stress in your life as one avenue to explore.

Getting to the value of garlic, I have taken antibiotics three times this year only to have the symptoms and infection return with a vengeance. I seized my power and began my journey on trying a more holistic approach to my healing, and it began with increasing my meditation and prayer time, continuing my exercise program, and drinking two cups of Golden Seal Herbal tea a day. But the magic wand is garlic! I read that garlic is a natural antibiotic (among other extraoridnary benefits) that also helps with inflammation (pressure)! Click here to read more and then read the ScienceDaily website for really extensive information about the health benefits of garlic.

I began eating one fresh organic garlic clove three times a day, everyday and noticed that my infection cleared within 72 hours, but I felt a major difference in 48 hours. I now eat one clove a day, and I can feel the difference in my sinus cavities. I can breathe. I have energy. My joints and ears are clear, and there is no sinus pressure. Imagine that! Oh, don't forget to gargle and brush with baking soda to kill the garlic smell!

I hope you find this information valuable as I do. For me, it's about sharing as much information I can while you are on your journey in peace, holistically!

I'm so excited that our paths are meeting!!

Sending you on your way with a heighten level of positive energy and excellent health, always!

Inspirational Monday: We are excellence!

"I am intentional; I am on purpose, and from this moment on, I treat myself in the light of this truth."

-Dr. Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith

From this point forward, know and feel that all of the exellence you are capable of displaying is far more greater than you can ever imagine. Discover your potential within by staying present and avoiding excessive thinking and excessive blaming.

I'm learning to let doubtful and fearful thoughts pass by like clouds in the sky. I have a choice to grab them or to let them pass. I choose to let them pass by recognizing that they are there. In this awareness, I'm reminded of the fact that we are not our thoughts. We are soooo much more.

As I previously said, we are limitless Beings and we should practice remembering that our purpose has been within us since the day we accepted with gratitude to experience and paticipate in this life.

Your purpose is to rely on the greatest potential there is and that's you! The Presence within us allows us to potentially co-exist with peace and harmony of this Universe! Look inside and discover what's all ready inside your soul - your gut - your Being and that is creativity, love, peace and joy! These attributes are us if we can just remove those things within our thoughts that serve us no purpose but to make us miserable.

Discover our potential in excellence from within so that we can smile and feel complete joy even when we perceive chaos or challenges within our circles. As everything else, it takes practice. Are you willing to practice so that these attributes surface without any effort? I am!

We are great potential! We are excellence! Feel it - own it - act on it!

Happy Inspirational Monday!

Conscious Friday: The joy of pen pals

It was my bedroom window that became my theater as I held onto the words written very tiny across the sometimes yellow, sometimes gray but mostly white paper that told me the story of my pen pal's life in the Army. I imagined and visualized as much as I could in my tiny mental traveling space the day he went to the Duran Duran Concert somewhere far away in Germany. I held the ticket stubs in my hand.

I didn't know paper could have so much value and power. I would stare out of the window for what seemed like hours as the radio played Cindy Lauper's, "Girls just want to have fun." The words in the letter were magical to me and it was my quiet time. The window "supported and waited patiently" for me to fall all out of the trance.

The pure excitement and joy in sending and receiving words of thoughts are priceless.

A gift that comes in letter form is a jewel. I remember it. So, I'm excited to participate in the Gift of Jewels project and I think you will be excited to. Please join in on this fun. Find out more information by clicking here.

Have a Happy Conscious Friday by staying conscious of your inner child!

I say yes!

As the sound and the wind of the water brushed my ears at Niagara Falls in Buffalo, NY, the magfinicent power that came from the rush of the waters made me now realize that this flowing power of water is just another example of what can operate through me.

Just as these waters flow without limit, so can the very gifts that all of us have within. The same energy that beautifully and confidently move these waters without any limitiations is the same energy that moves us. We are limitless Beings.

So, if you feel stagnate, restless, fearful or confused, try stopping for a few minutes and listen to and feel your heart beat. Listen to your breath. Feel the tingle from the energy in your hands and feet, chest, and stomach. What you feel is Life - strong, unwavering and unprecedented Life! We not only have the power to experience whatever beautiful thing we want in this Universe, but we have the love, the peace and the enthusiasm that carries our creativity.

We are limitless just like the waters falling from that cliff and we can choose to avoid our creativity or we can choose to feel and say "yes" to our creativity no matter what it is... Saying "yes" gives us joy, deep expression of our love that's already within, kindness, excitement and definitely peace! Plus, watch the extraordinary things that arise because of this one word!

I say yes!

Sending you so much positive energy, always!

Inspirational Monday: Love

This photo was taken in Buffalo, NY - Niagara Falls. I felt a sense of freedom and limitless while standing on this cliff.

I am loved. I am love. I love.

These are the words that whispered to my Spirit – my Soul this morning. The sheer feeling of love is a powerful anecdote in helping us let go of fear, doubt and resentment. Love is beautiful and we need courage and determination to practice it.

When I have a challenging time expressing or feeling love because of my ego (my thoughts and beliefs), I’ve learned how to use a tool to help me turn on the vibratory signal of love. I think and feel of someone I know, without a doubt, whom I love unconditionally. I usually begin with my daughter and my husband. I feel that energy until I can barely sit still. Then, I think of that other person, place or situation that is challenging for me and then I transfer that energy – that love frequency – to that person or event. Then I feel it and accept it as our Creator loves and accept us unconditionally.

On this vibratory signal of love, I breathe deeply. I breathe knowing in my core that the love I express, share and depend on to guide me is the love and light that is us, that created us - that shines through us to give this world life!

Isn’t that simply divine? We are light! We are loved! We are love! Therefore, we love!

Please share your light of inspiration. We would love to hear!

Happy Inspirational Monday!

Conscious Friday: Forgiveness in practice

My daughter, niece and I just arrived back from Dollar General picking up a few things for the house. I paid for all of my items feeling grateful that I finally had the funds to support my family's needs.

Jannah is in the mode where she is carrying her favorite things everywhere she goes. For the last few days, she has been obsessed with her movie, Norbit (Eddie Murphy stars in it). So, she carried it into Dollar General.

After paying for my items, I noticed that the male cashier shuffled quickly to another female employee in the store, probably the manager, to whisper that we were possibly stealing a movie. Now, keep in mind that I reached for the movie in the cart and gave it to Jannah while standing at the register. While he was whispering, I said to him, "Excuse me. This is her movie and we are not thieves." He was surprised that I felt his conversation with his co-worker. He apologized and I said apology accepted.

The moral to the story is that I looked at this situation as an opportunity to practice forgiveness. I practice forgiveness so that it doesn't become toxic to my body. I practice forgiveness as it allows me "to eleminate toxcity from my spiritual architecture," as stated by the great Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith. I will not repeat this story after sharing it with you unless it is to help someone who wants to forgive and is struggling with the process. Also, my heart will greet the Dollar General employee with forgiveness the next time I enter into the doors of that building.

No one determines our success but us. We should forgive daily even if the person or group doesn't ask us too. We forgive because it is absolute love and we must practice it and claim it. Why? It gives birth to peace of mind!

Have a Happy Conscious Friday!

Off to school...

With a belly full of excitement, two entry tests taken, writing samples, letter of why I decided to include KSU yet again as part of my life's journey (I will tell you about the letter one day) and dreams that came from deep within, I have been accepted to graduate school! Yeah! Yes, you are looking at a student of the Master's in Professional Writing program!

I begin classes on August 17th. I have to admit that my perception of life will not be as "normal" as it is now but who cares, right? I'm blessed to live out the dream that didn't come from my thoughts but from the very core of who I am.

So, I breathe and exhale and breathe and exhale and I accept!! I'm not sure how much I will be blogging considering I can hardly keep up with everyone now and I'm not in school so we will see.

Thank you for listening and for visiting! It's all about the love!

Presenting: License to Kill (positive view)

With gratitude, my goal is to share as much information I can with you during your journey to peace, holistically! I often read and study to also share words of inspiration in hopes of enriching and blessing not just your mind and your soul, but your beautiful body that is an intregal part of your Being. The freedom, love and peace that my mind and soul embodies from the words that lay across my lip and the thoughts that charge the computer screen from my finger tips all come from an incredible and devine love within all of us. I'm aiming for this love and only this love to live through me and for me to live as one with this beautiful Presence.

I present to you, "License to Kill." I have to admit, I didn't like the opening of the introduction but understood the profound message after the first sixty seconds. We are spiritual Beings having an human experience - true. However, to completely enjoy the benefits of this magnificent experience we call life, we must keep our bodies healthy. These videos focuses on just that - healthy lifestyles.

Sending excellence in mind, soul and body!!

Listen to your heart: License to Kill (Parts 1-7 are posted consecutively)

Note: My intention is to post this information in an effort to share knowledge of what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle, spirtually, mentally and physically. Video 7 deals with becoming a partner to sell a particular product. I don't sell products and I don't promote business ventures but decided to leave the video on just in case there were questions about how to get involved.

Inspirational Monday: You are my inspiration

Hello everyone! I'm a little late in posting my inspiration today. There is so much that is going on right now everywhere in blogland and I see that I'm not the only one that have not gotten the chance to blog hop in awhile.

Know that I look forward to smiling, laughing, sending empathy and compassion and receiving such warm and inspiring words here in blogland. I know I will make my rounds this week. Just know that you are my inspiration to keep inspiring, at least, I hope that I am with a sincere and beautiful heart. I pray for those actions to be shown through this avenue of Operation You!

Happy Inspirational Monday!

Happy Conscious Friday: Pause and Reflect

Sometimes we are so busy tackling the things that come up in our lives that we believe need fixing. So, we respond. Well actually, we react.

On this Conscious Friday, my goal is to pause before I react. Pause to reflect and to feel my way by listening to my intuition. I will tell you how it goes.

Have a Happy Conscious Friday!

Speaking of letting your light shine...

I know I keep referencing the wonderful cruise that my family and I enjoyed so much. I can't help myself. I hope to stay on this high as long as I can. And it's so easy to talk about it because there are so many incredible dimensions to share about this valuable time of peace and relaxation. Today, I present "her" to you. She was a celebrity. I heard whispers, "That's the little girl. That's the little girl who danced last night. The diva had arrived!

She danced!

...And she danced! I know you see the light.

When she saw these two gentlemen, she jumped right in. She sang!

She slept...

Inspirational Monday: The beauty of light

My sister and I were standing on the side of the ship one morning after breakfast and of course, I forgot my camera. We were in awe and I said hurry and take this picture before it disappears. She just sent this photo to me today and I had to share it with you.

It is sheer inspiration to know that the light of peace is shining on us all the time. In fact, that same light - this glorious ray of energy - is in us. Visualize the light coming from your soul glowing on all that you meet today. It is forever glowing! We just have to allow it to shine and be conscious of it when the light goes dim. Let's be positive in every situation. You may have to struggle to avoid the distractions but staying present -conscious of love, peace, forgiveness, calmness and opinions, will surely support you on our journey to peace. We give this world life via our light and that light is our Creator! Feel your way and trust your instincts. That's your light - That's God!

Feel free to share your stories or photos of inspiration. We would love to be inspired by you!

Happy Inspirational Monday!
