The Blessed Journey Within

Finding God does not take a trip of a thousand footsteps. You merely have to look inside to find HIM.

Why do you feel that faith is something that you find somewhere? Your soul has all of the necessary information on God and life that you will ever need. Looking outside of yourself may be a deterrent to finding those “truths” that you know exist.

You don’t live life inside of yourself. This would accomplish nothing. You must balance what happens around you and what is in your soul. To initially find your faith you must touch upon it where it resides in your God Center. This is in your solar plexus or the area behind the tip of your sternum.

Often advice comes suggesting you follow your heart or what you have determined to be factual in your mind. These two energy centers may not give you the most accurate information. Emotions cloud much of the information that spirit may provide to you. It is this fact that skews your guidance.

Emotions will keep you actively involved in negative loops of thinking and behavior. If you are in an abusive relationship will you leave and get safe if you follow your heart? No. You will likely stay because you love that person. You love them enough to keep forgiving them over and over again. What does your mind say about this? Whatever you choose to tell yourself. Your self-talk may be keeping you in this relationship as well. “I love him, he will change, and she made a promise this time… I know she will change for me.” Either your heart or your mind has not provided you with truthful information.

You will be chasing emotions for the rest of your life but this will not get you anywhere. The truth is in your God Center. Touch your fingers to the lower portion of your sternum. Be still and meditative if possible. Find that truth that is there. To know you have successfully made a connection to your true self you will feel a sense of calm and knowing.

This knowledge is based in truth so there is no emotion attached to it. This is also a good state to be mindful. In this inner connection you find truth and stability that you may have not known before. Emotion makes you run here or there, become upset with what is and mood swings from euphoria to desolation. This is not spiritual health. This is being a slave to your emotions.

Have you found that you haven’t made any real progress by following your emotions? If you make decisions by what mood you are in, there is no authentic motivation. These decisions may leave you feeling empty, lost or alone. You may also feel like you never get ahead. It may be like climbing a mountain of fine sand. You have images of never reaching the top.

Your chart is in your God Center. Your guides and God are there too.

If you find your mind whirls with chatter, who are you actually listening to? Most of the time it is your own inner voice. Occasionally it is a guide or other Divine being. Sometimes it is a ghost or earthbound spirit who offers you useless or upsetting information. There are darker beings that may invade your mind but that would take a skilled seer to discover this. NEVER go to someone who has no training or background in dealing with attachments or nefarious spirits. This will only deepen your struggles.

Information given to you that is frightening is not a spirit guide. Genuine guidance from spirit guides is matter-of-fact. They are verbally blunt and expressionless. This emotionless exchange is true. You always have to remember how you felt the moment you received the information. Why? Because you will add emotion, fear, excitement, dread, hopelessness… It may be helpful to write it down so when your mind or heart begins to add layers of nonsensical information you may reconnect with how you felt when you originally became aware of the information. Weed out the mind/heart interference and remember what the genuine message was.

Receiving genuine guidance may not make you very popular. You tend to become matter-of-fact as well. Things make sense and seem obvious. You have a direct line to what your intuition states from this life and perhaps a few others. This unquestionable “knowing” may irritate those you deal with. They may feel that you are uncaring or a know-it-all. They may also mistake your mental strength and stability as some type of personality disorder. You really want people to know that you love them and offer support, care and nurturing. You are not an emotionless robot so do not present yourself as one. This is one caveat. Remember to offer love and support because when others are still dealing from their heart or mind they will not comprehend your God Center directness. Find truth but remember how to love.

Have you known spiritual leaders to seem arrogant or lofty? This is that caveat that we make reference to. You may have profound faith and dedication to God but still seem unapproachable or distant. This really doesn’t help you or anyone else. Life does not occur in a vacuum. You need information from within AND still participate in life. This is one of your life goals.

To be lofty and above all others will make your soul group connections diminish. You will seem to travel in isolation. You may only communicate with others who have your same lofty beliefs. Then what good are you doing for your loved ones, family and community? Be a real person with a direct connection to God. Remain humble and stay connected to loved ones. Be aware that they are still dealing in terms that you have found to be ineffective and obsolete. They still deserve your love and attention. If they cannot deal with you on your spiritual level then choose to send them angels, pray for their well-being and jump in with help where and when you can.

Don’t be a silo in a world of too many silos. Use your knowledge and awareness to help everyone along. Send love, hope and healing to all others. You are not going to break bread with them or allow them to live in your guest room but a thoughtful prayer and blessing is awesome. There are struggles throughout this world. Send something positive to these places or situations. Many spiritual beings will offer that LOVE is always the answer. Embrace this and see where it takes you.

Love is truly in your God Center. Self-love, love of others and love for all Creation does not just reside in your heart. The entirety of “your” truth is in your God Center and real life will flow from there.

10 Goals for Living a Balanced Life

Love lies as shallow as your intentions or as deep as your longing.

We long for more out of life and we push to have more and to be more. Do we have the goals for our needs established? Or, do we just want and need?

This is a reminder to set some goals for your life. We would like to see short-term goals and long-term goals. This is a guideline and you are free to establish your own priorities if you wish.

1. Income- Be reasonable. Don’t ask to be a millionaire if that doesn’t fit with what you have accomplished with your life. Set a goal within your means. If you currently make $20k then set a goal to make $25k this year. Then, look for ways to make that additional money to meet your goal. 

2. Education- If you need a degree or a higher degree to make that extra income then set the goal to make it happen. If you still need to work focus on night classes or internet degrees and decide how many credits that you will earn per year. Will you seek a promotion where you already work or will you seek a position elsewhere?

3. Lover- Someone to love. No abuse, anger or violence. No co-dependency. If you need counseling to change some of your relationship concerns then please do so. Do not cling to someone who is not healthy for you. Many people fear being alone but God prefers that you be loved and cherished in a healthy, non-abusive relationship.

4. Family- Love is always the most important emotion to share. Be open and honest. Give support and guidance. Be a gentle place to always find acceptance.

5. Community Involvement- Donate, volunteer, be an activist. Get moving and make something better. Setting goals for this are endless. You may touch upon many areas of interest at different times. Be sure to set both short-term and long-term goals. 

6. Leader- Start something that provides others with knowledge and information that you already have. Or, assist someone who already has a group started. Sharing your passion with others is an exhilarating experience. 

7. Guide- Allow others to share what is in your heart. Emotion accompanies what you have to give. They feel your devotion and sense your soul. This is best described as giving others a blueprint about how to improve their lives through faith and knowing. 

8. Involved Parent- Whether it is your own children or not decide upon a path of guidance and direction. Be open and positive. Make growing up seem like fun! Always allow for mistakes and be gentle when things go wrong.

9. Caregiver- It could be a child, parent or grandparent. It may even be a spouse who is ill. Learn to set your own needs aside. Provide love and understanding. Do not become over tired or exhausted. Seek help from others in this person’s life if it becomes too much for you. If you have to step back, try not to feel guilty or judge yourself too harshly. God is forgiving and so are you.

10. Faithful Follower- Worship God! Love others. Provide direction and guidance to those who seem lost. Always have the best intentions when sharing your faith.

Set goals and stay on track! You’ll be surprised at how many people will cherish your involvement.

With My Love and the Love of Our Father,
