Do People Believe You

Do people believe you when you tell them who you are?

Can you imagine what it would feel like if they didn't believe you?

Knowing that you are more then your history, your culture, your age, your experiences, your intellect, your socio-economic class,  your ethnicity, your biology, your interests, is the greatest gift of our teaching. When we come to discover that we are individualized expressions of the One Divine Mind, we start to fall in love with ourselves. When we start to fall in love with ourselves, our lives change.

One of the most difficult stages in life is adolescence. During this time the roots that have been carefully nourished keep us grounded to what really matters and the wings that we are developing grow stronger, able to carry us through heartache and fears.

We just received this video from Centers for Spiritual Living, which was produced at Teen Camp this summer.  I feel the boys' pain, anger, and frustration. I was deeply moved by their courage to so openly and honestly reveal their feelings. I trust that you  will enjoy it.

What I am aware of in this moment is the need for great compassion, which poured from me while I was watching the video. I am also aware that compassion is just the first step. In addition to compassion, we need to remember who we really are. We need to remember that as energetic beings, we are either attracting people into our lives or repelling people from them. It truly is the Law of Attraction.We need to consciously make room for positive, creative, loving friends in our lives by being what we want to attract. Practicing the principles of the Science of Mind and Spirit is the first step.

I am a spiritual being awakening to the infinite possibilities within me.

On OUR Creative Power...

"What we outwardly are, and what we are to become, depends upon what we are thinking, for this is the way we are using Creative Power."
-Ernest Holmes

It's all about perspective… How you see things. What you believe about yourSelf, as well as, the world around you.
I have had situations, circumstances, and events in my life that I could have chosen to interpret as devastating. Instead, I chose to allow those same instances to Empower me… To Liberate me!
In large part, I did not allow the noise created by those seemingly devastating instances to instill doubt and insecurity within me. Oh, trust and believe, I did, indeed experience and express sure fire instances of fear and doubt, as I manueuvered through my stuggles and challenges.  However, I did not allow them fear, and her cousin, doubt) to deny me from feeling my personal best.
I chose confidence and Self-assuredness...Thus, creating a pathway to happiness and a sense of satisfaction, regardless of situation, circumstance, or event.
The Confident face their fears… And try new ways. The Self-assured seek gratification that comes from within… Less influenced by the approval and judgement of others.
These days, I AM going deep...challenging mySelf in a loving way, and embarking on  My Hero's Journey, as my coach, friend, and mentor, Brenda Adelman, has so aptly called IT, and writing My Story. My Story...My Hero's Journey, represents and depicts all the adventures  that I have had the opportunity to have been challenged by, in order that I may learn the lessons necessary for the growth of my Spiritual Consciousness...continuing my process of healing and transformation.  IT is through that Sacred process of healing and transformation that I may share My Story, assisting others in their own healing and transformation.  Assisting others in the Knowing that we are not alone.  No way...No how!
IT is through that Hero's Journey...that we have all so graciously been placed on...individually, as well as together, that we may come to learn and live our lessons. That we may come to learn and express Forgiveness of ourSelf, as well as others. That we may learn that we are more Powerful than we may think...that Authentic Power from within...our GODling Self.  That, together, we may become a driving force to positively impact the world through Love...through Peace!  Stay tuned!
Today… I invite YOU to honor and believe in yourSelf... regardless of Your Story!
For… Such promotes peace of mind… And success in every area of your life!
Today… I invite YOU to...Think, "I can"... And you will! Of this, I AM certain!
Once again…Always remember, what YOU do and who YOU are…..MATTERS! 

Yes…for me…I no longer need to know exactly where I AM going.  For me…All I need to Know is that I AM On My Way!

To Our Health, Wealth & Empowerment...and BEING Together!

With Love & Blessings!

Wholeness Revealed as Scars are Healed

Sister Kathy and I

In preparation for Altogether Day this coming Sunday, I have been watching the movie "Frozen." The movie explores many themes including the true love between sisters and how actions can be misinterpreted. I began thinking that our deep emotional scars may not have been incurred through a parent's angry words, or a teacher's frustrated statements, but through a siblings's inexplicable actions. When I was a little girl, and even today, my older sister was my role model. I wanted to be just like her. I especially wanted her approval for my activities.

When I was in kindergarten, our class was doing a version of the "The Hokey Pokey" for our annual Christmas concert. The auditorium was crowded with adults and children. Evidently my sister had been teasing me that I would forget the lyrics or more likely put the wrong foot in. When the rest of the children filed off, I when to the front of the stage and peered down at her and asked, "Wasn't I good Kathryn?" She was in 5th grade and was angry that all eyes were on her. She didn't speak to me on the drive home. Of course, I was heartbroken.

That incident held the seed to the biggest belief that I had to overcome on the way to being a platform minister. What I had to get to was the awareness that if I was pleased with what I said or did, then it didn't matter at all whether others approved or not.

Recently when I spent time with sister, she told me how much she regretted being embarrassed and angry. All these years later, those were words I wanted to hear. Wholeness was revealed and scars of the past were healed.

In "Frozen" Elsa, the older sister has magical powers that become uncontrolled when she is upset. Her parents teach her to "conceal, not feel." They did it for her good and the safety of her sister, but it is among the worst pieces of advice I have ever heard. From it, her sister thought that she was no longer loved; that they were no longer friends.

The movie has a beautiful ending in which the true love that sisters have for one another is the healing power of life itself. 

In a way, all of us have the power to heal or to hurt. Our "magic" is in the words we use and the actions we take.
