Positive Affirmation Day

positiveaffirmation10Sometimes you can’t see it. Your dreams. Your relationship. Your life. Keep walking. No one said you had see everything to receive. Moving without sight is scary. You have to hold on to walls or be led by others.  You have to walk slower. Trust. Give up control and believe.

There are people who will not believe in you. Some who look forward to seeing you fall. Thoughts from others or your own try to convince you that you are moving in the wrong direction. Fight the urge to give in. It may mean walking alone. Ending connections and relationships. Praying. Meditating. Feeling so vulnerable and raw.

Walking in faith is knowing that the impossible can happen. Yes, you may have fears and sometimes things don’t always work out but that doesn’t mean you won’t come through. Claim what is yours and walk slowly into the unknown. You will often find you are not taking this walk alone.

Positive Affirmation Monday

I-am-divinely-protectedIt is a wonderful feeling to know that someone out there has your back and that you are not alone. Many people will tell you that the Divine, or Faith, or Religion, or Spirituality doesn’t exist. It is a creation and the fabrication of the mind. I tell you there is nothing like having a firm foundation and strong faith in a Supreme Being wrapping itself around you when no one is around, when friends have failed, loved ones are loss or you have somehow dishonored yourself. To be able to look up, kneel down, meditate, and realize that despite all the mess and negativity around- you are protected.

You still might have to battle, but you can battle with calm because you are safe.

Centering Thought of the Day

“Faith does not make things easy it makes them possible.”~Unknown


Some of you have a history of pain. Childhood wasn’t good. You struggle to get up in the morning because of depression. You have a chronic illness that continues to plague your life and you’re tired of the doctors. Grief has you because the loss of a loved one and you’re not quite sure if you can go on without them. Or you have been fired from your job and you feel it was unjustified. Yet you do not think you have the strength to start a business or go back to school. You get in your car and call yourself names. Thinking no one will love you. Or you will not find someone who can or will love you for who you are. Some of you sabotage your own success. You have addictions and you cannot stop. But you can bring something better into your life. Anything- my friend.

So what are you waiting for? For something to change? For the right timing? Life usually does not work that way. It is about taking risk. Stepping out even when you cannot see ahead. Walking through the valleys with your head high. Climbing the mountains even when you’re tired. No one said the journey would be easy. Actually life can be full of complexities. Your job is to see it for what it is and still move forward anyway. But how?

Faith. Do you know what it is? It knowing something that has not happened yet. Putting things out there that have yet to form into existence but believing it will anyway. To focus on something and move toward it even when everyone around you is convinced it isn’t important or relevant to your life. To have a vision or purpose of something and despite its failings you continue to keep the flames burning. It is making the impossible possible. Faith is being scared to death and still standing tall.

So walk. Keep going. Push. Get up. Rise and breathe. For what you put out into the universe you will get.
