Finding your way

Each day I do my best to stay connected. I usually wake up thanking God for the day and all there is to be grateful for. I ask for his guidance. It doesn’t take long to do and it puts me in a better frame of mind. Some may think they don’t have the time to focus on doing the things they should be doing. It’s hard and simple. You have to push yourself in the beginning to change your ways but after a while of doing this it just happens. You won’t even have to think about it.

There were many connections, yesterday for me . One simple little thing  I’ll share with you, there was a motor cycle following me very close, way to close. I had an uncomfortable feeling about that. For good reason I had to stop short do to a weird situation. I could tell the guy wasn’t happy, I could see his mouth moving as he passed me  at the light. But it wasn’t my fault at all. I could feel and sense something going to happen and thankfully no one was hurt. If ever you feel that way, tune in to it, to see if you need to do something to change the outcome. Tuning in may show you something to help the situation.

I would like to show you ways to tune in. I have found that taking the time to do meditation is an important part of life.  Most people will say they don’t have time for that or they can’t sit quietly for that long. I was the same as you. I have antsy pants and my mind tends to be working in overdrive. If I can do it you can do it. My daughter told me of this site called ” insight timer” It has all kinds of meditations, for anything your heart desires and for any amount of time you want from several minutes to and hour. For what ever. It is wonderful. I love it. I use earbuds so I am focused and all distractions between me and the meditation are gone.  If I start listening to one and don’t like it I will find a different one, till I find one right for me. If I love one I can bookmark it so its saved for me.

Once you start to do this simple task, you will be amazed at how calm and open you become. It will help you get a better connection to life. You will start getting more focused.

My daughter does a great yoga class, she really helps you get focused, you walk out feeling great mind, body and spirit. She gives you a little connection that can do get things for your daily life. She teaches learning to be grounded and connected. Also learning to breath, we don’t realize how much learning to breath and take deep breaths in and out makes you feel so much better throughout your day. If you haven’t tried that do that right now. Take a few deep breaths in and out. I do this now all throughout the day. It feels great. I love to do yoga. I like the slow flow yoga. Perfect for me. And of course I am proud of my daughter and the way she teaches, she has a class you would really love. Try yoga, slow flow to start is so refreshing.

I will tell people, when they say they don’t have the time to meditate or pray, or seek,   “You don’t have the time to, not do it”. These things will help you find a better life. You will be so glad you took the time. Before you know it you will never want to go a day without them. And you will feel so much better. Have a wonderful day. God bless 🙂

 

 

Connection at work.

I started my blog several days ago. and I seem to be getting daily things I can share about without me even going into years of work that I have been doing, on positive thought, positive auto suggestion, intentions, prayer, meditation, intuition and a number of other things, that I have taught in my work shops.

Last night I saw the numbers 10:10 and I have always felt that those numbers meant something to me. I have seen them over the years many times with a feeling like, they mean something and it was time I did some research as to why I see these numbers a lot. I googled  the numbers  and read many things about what the numbers mean. I was really amazed at what I was being shown. These numbers and what they meant were also connecting to other things that I’m being shown. I went upstairs to bed and I looked at the clock to see 11:11. Again I felt like okay this is telling me something as well. This morning I looked into the number and again was amazed at what it meant. I was in the middle of doing several things I needed to get done and I felt strongly to pick up this little book I have by Louise Hay,” Everyday positive thinking”. I had been drawn to pick it up the minute I sat down to do my work, but I didn’t get to it right away. After doing all the things I wanted to do including looking up those numbers I randomly opened  the book and laughed.

How cool God leads us, this is what the page said, “Notice repetitious signs and your inner guidance, as this can yield valuable information. Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.  Why was this so cool? Because all that I was reading on the google search was from Doreen as well, and it was all inner connected. Telling me the things I needed to know. You can call them synchronicity, or whatever you choose. But for me the bottom line is God sending signs to me that are showing me things he wants me to know, or questions I am asking him are being answered.

The repetitious signs being these numbers and then looking up the meaning so I understood what was being shown to me. I will tell you that I have seen these numbers for years 1010 and knew they  had meaning, I just think that maybe I wasn’t ready to receive the answer, and that’s why it took me so long to look up the meaning and why I kept seeing these numbers.  Or maybe I was missing it all those times. But I’m ready now.

God never gives up on you, to show you what you need or want to know. If you are asking he is answering. So Tune in to things that you feel are trying to tell you something. Have a blessed day. 🙂

 

How can you tell if its God speaking to you?

I used to ask God to show me three times the answer I was seeking. Just to make sure that this answer I was feeling or seeing was from him. He was and is always gracious to show me things more than once, or as many times as needed . So never be afraid to ask. Like I’ve said he never gives up on me. (or You ) He will always be there to show me again and again what I need to know, see or hear. I’m in a place now where I don’t need to be shown three times to know it’s from God. But every once in a while he will do something three times just so I know that it is from him.

I once bought a book on EFT (Emotional Freedom Tapping ) I thought it really interesting. I tried to do EFT from this book. Even thought it was a great book and the teaching was great, I was not quite understanding it. Me always learning to be positive, with tapping you’re saying negative. I stopped doing it because I felt conflict between positive and negative. God didn’t give up on me, because I didn’t get it right then. Some years later I meet someone who did EFT and wanted to help me. I asked her a question , and each time I asked, her answer cut out, so I couldn’t here her response. This was a very  important question I needed an answer to, if I would be able to do EFT.  I felt a bit embarrassed but I needed to hear her answer. This happened three times. After I heard her answer, I realized several things, I could do the EFT and that God sent her and EFT to help me.

By making me ask three times for the answer was my sign from God, I was to do it. Don’t feel like you are wrong for wanting the answer more than once. I will never worry  about that. God wants you to be clear on what you need to know. He will be there to tell you as many times as you need to hear, and know that it is from him.

Ask and it will be given you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. Even when we feel we need to bang. He will always love us and be there to answer. God bless

When some little seed is planted.

The other day, someone planted a seed in my head. It’s so easy to do. You say something or hear something and all of a sudden you have this unconscious feeling in you that won’t go away. We really have to watch what we hear. Good or bad seeds can grow.

The other day someone planted a seed in my head that we sometimes need to just give in and have that bad thing to eat like a fast food burger or whatever. I don’t eat fast food burgers anymore. When they first came out we drove 50 miles to get one. But that was years ago. The seed has been growing in my head for a week now and I haven’t gotten a burger yet, but I want one. 🙂

It’s so easy to plant seeds. When you truly want something in your life, plant those seeds. If you want to take a vacation, lose weight, buy something, whatever it is you need to put it in front of you and in your mind at all times. Stop and take a minute here and there to really focus on it. Visualize it in your mind, see yourself truly having what you want.

I wanted to go to Hawaii once.There was no way I thought I could ever go to Hawaii. But I planted the seed. There was a lot of  tragic things happening in my life and I just wanted to get away for my 50th birthday. Long story short, as I was telling my son I wanted to get away and go to Hawaii he said then go, he walked out of the house I walked across the hall and a paper dropped on the floor in front of me. It was a post card of Hawaii from my daughters pile of papers. She had past away several weeks earlier. She new I wanted to go to Hawaii before she died. I had to clean out her apartment and that pile of papers just happened to be there from her apartment I had to sort through. I new in that instant that I was being told to go to Hawaii. And I thank my daughter for making it come to pass. From the other side she directed me to go. It was from the extra money I had from her insurance money that I was able to go. All of this a coincidence, I think not.

If I could still have my daughter I would never care about going anywhere. I just want you to know that there are many ways God will use to help you with things you want, need or have to do. Don’t let that flash thought pass you by, Those flash thoughts, urges,intuitions, gut feelings all mean something. If you are willing to hear and see and do what you need to do. Thing is most of the time we dismiss them as fast as they come.

If you are asking for something just know the way is being  shown to you. You must be willing to except the answer. It may not be the most direct answer, you may have to do some things that don’t make sense, or you may be shown things that is telling you to be patient. Sometimes we have to do things till it comes to pass, or just keep doing the right thing. Then one day it happens.  I always find that when it’s not happening when I want it, he gives me things that shows me he hears me, but it isn’t right that second it will happen. This is the time to stand strong, keep the faith and truly believe. Don’t give up. He put all those dreams and desires in your heart. If you truly want them and decide it’s time to have them it will happen. When a wish becomes a desire that won’t go away. It will happen.

How many people have something they really want? Bring it to the front of your thinking put it on the front burner and keep a close watch on it, waiting for it . Tune in to the how. The simple things that will make it come to pass. God bless.

 

 

God uses certain things to help guide you.

There are many ways that God uses to help lead and guide us. We may feel it or sense it but not follow it. Or we second guess it. One big way that God speaks to me is through books. I would like to tell you that I do everything I’m shown to do but unfortunately I don’t. I’m trying to get better at it everyday.

One day I was sitting down by the river writing my book. And as always seeking answers. It was a  beautiful fall day and I was all alone. Then my peace was interrupted by a women. She didn’t bother me, she came quietly down and sat a ways  behind me. We sat silent for a long time in our own space. I had to go past her to get something out of the car, as I  passed her I said hi. When I came back we got talking, she had written a book and gave it to me. Dying to Live. Which I thought was amazing here I am in the middle of no where and a book is handed to me. I went home and read that book in about two hours. What did God share with me that day. The book was small and simple. It had a message in it big time. It was everything I needed to help me keep going.

When you are open God will share what you need, no matter where you may be . Stay open to the ways he will use to speak to you.

When I ask for something I keep my mind open , I know that he will answer me. He always does. It may not be the exact thing I want but it will be a guiding answer. I may have to wait longer for what I want, but I have total faith that what I ask for will happen. I can ask a hundred times and he is gracious to answer a hundred times.With his answer to guide me. I may have to do things he wants me to do till what I want comes to pass. But he helps me every step as I seek him.

You may be sick or overweight or have an addiction. Or whatever it is . He may be showing you things like change your diet. Eat a certain food, or do something you don’t want to do. Go to a certain place for healing or help. You come to him over and over and you feel the same things he is nudging you to do. But you don’t think it will work or you just don’t want to do it. He won’t give up on answering you, trying to show you the way. You may give up on him for the answer. Just know, it’s not him giving up on you it’s you giving up on you, and you giving up on God. I always say the way is simple and hard. It’s what we make it. Just try and take the first step then another. Baby steps are just as important as big steps.

When you are asking God for something, don’t dismiss a flash thought in your head or a picture or someone saying something that may connect to your question. Today as simple as I’m saying to myself I should eat avocado on my toast. I jump on my computer open to  my yahoo inbox and there is something saying on my fitness pal, ” why avocados may help you live longer.”  Ever wonder when your thinking about eating better or getting into shape you are drawn to the answers but chose to ignore. 🙂  Have a great , blessed day.

Where is the connections to God in us?

Listen to that still small voice inside you

God lives in us, therefore we are connected to him. I have always been able to feel and sense God in me, even as a child. Some people may not believe that, if you are one who isn’t  sure of that I will go further. There are people out there who have been in a situation where you felt strongly not to do something and by listening to that feeling found that it saved your life. That is the God that lives in us. We have these feelings living inside of us from the day we are born, intuition, gut feelings, premonitions, little voice,or a screaming voice ,urges,  something that gently pushes us. A feeling that we should do a certain thing. We follow it and we may even take it for granted and not really acknowledge what it is. That is our God living in us helping us to move in the right direction. Sometimes we may not listen and find ourselves saying I should of listened to what I was feeling. I have had this happen many times in my life. I try to follow it but sometimes I get in a rush and try to ignore it. Like the time I broke my foot, while hanging my flower baskets. My little voice as I call it was Screaming stop, don’t do this, go get your ladder, stop standing on these things, its not save. I didn’t listen I though just this one more time and I’m done. And I was done. Down on the porch floor I went, hearing a loud crack, breaking my foot.

I have had other times as well, One time driving to North Carolina, it was sleeting, there was about 4 inches of sleet on the road. My windshield was icing up. I was also driving a little BMW at 65 mph. There were other vehicles passing me as well . I kept hearing this voice in my head telling me to get off the road and clean my windshield off. I said God could you please let the sun come out and clear my windshield off. Amazingly the sun came out for about 1 minute and it melted the ice a little bit.( The sun only came out that whole day for that One minute). The voice still said get off the exit and clear your windshield off. So I followed that voice. I got off the road long enough to clear off my windshield, got back on the road and say traffic stopped. I turned on the radio heard there was an accident. I felt strong to leave room between the cars ahead of me. It gave me the room I needed to turn my car around and get off the exit which I told others to do. I got around the wreak on a road that was parallel to the highway. I saw the wreak and the cars involved were the same cars I was driving with and those that passed me. Had I not listened to that voice inside me I too what of been involved in that wreak. There were trucks on top of cars, 11 vehicles involved. Thanks to my little voice (God) I am still here enjoying life. There have been lots of times like these.

One time I could not turn my steering wheel to get into the middle lane to make a left hand turn, at that very second a tractor trailer coming towards me swerved into the middle lane going quite fast. Had I been able to turn I would have been hit head on and probably  been killed.

Thanks to my inner connections to God. You have them as well. Learn to tune into those God connections, it will help you make the right choice.

 

 

Simple ways God uses everyday

I asked God for a word for my path today. (that was yesterday)  I was drawn to this book I’ve had a long time, the short story was about a women finding music in a Colorado stream after she asked God for a song, something to help her in her life at that moment. The story was about God giving her music through nature that helped her through the ups and downs of life. After reading that I was going to ride my bike. Pulled out a few papers that was in my phone carrier I use some times riding my bike and what does the paper I look at say. ” So there you have it how music can change your mood.”  I laughed because it couldn’t of been any better timing. After my bike ride I went to do some journaling, I was sitting there and my eyes went to the bookshelf to my bible. I didn’t want to take the time at that second but the urge was to great so I heard in my mind Psalm 92 then Psalm 95 so I read both of them. They were all about music and singing to God giving him praise. For those of you who don’t know me I was part of a worship team for 17 years, and I’ve put that on the back burner for a long time.  I then got a flash of the songs I wrote and the songs my husband wrote and felt I needed to take them and do something with them. They have been sitting there idle for years. Later I was talking to my husband and out of know where he started talking about his songs.  Coincidence? I think not.

All of this was connected to show and speak to me to get back into my music to God. It is were I love to be, and it feels like home when I do spend the time praising and worshipping God in song, singing and playing my guitar or keyboard.
