Creative Abundance

4 Sep

Abundance is more than money.  Abundance is the flow of energy that comes to us from the universal source of life as both spiritual and material prosperity.  Abundance is love and Wisdom, talents and virtues, money and material goods–whatever we need to fulfill our life’s purpose.  Energy should be flowing freely to us and through us to materialize abundance.  If we are not experiencing that flow of abundance, we have to ask ourselves why.

What is it within us or around us that is blocking prosperity?  What is blocking the Flow of God’s energy to us?  Saint Germain, who is an expert in the spiritual and physical transformation known as alchemy, writes:  “How long will you spend your energy struggling to eke out a bare existence from nature’s cupboard, which to some seem bare indeed, when all your needs can be met by mastering the cosmic laws that Jesus and other great teachers have demonstrated by their own love?..With you–as with God–all things are possible.”

 

Be Grateful For Everything that Happens to You

If the only prayer you say in your 

whole life is “thank you,” that would suffice.

-Meister Eckhart

There is an inherent law of mind

that we increase whatever we praise.

The whole of creation responds to praise and it glad.

-Charles Fillmore

Praise God for the joy and beauty of his creation–not the least of which is the beauty of your own soul. Continually thank God for what you are and what you have and you will see how your abundance will increase.

Affirmations:

Let God be magnified! (Ps.70:40)

Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. (Ps. 35:27)

Be grateful to God for everything that happens to you.  Everything–the negatives, the positives, the karma, the calamities–because they are teachers, they are lessons.  And if things aren’t going right, praise God for letting them go wrong to remind you that there is some adjustment you have to make in order to get on with your spiritual progress.

We are all on the path of initiation. Earth is a schoolroom, and we are intended to graduate from that schoolroom.  The lessons we learn along life’s way are what propel us from one grade to the next. Yet isn’t it true that we have all faced situations in life where we couldn’t see a single reason why we should praise God?  It is important to realize that anything coming at you–whether it’s Mars or a Mack truck, whether it’s your mother-in-law or your manager–is energy coming your way.  Bless the messenger who delivers that bundle of energy and then take the energy out of the seemingly negative matrix.  Reclaim it and transmute it into something positive.

Don’t wait until you have your full and final victory over life’s challenges to be happy, to rejoice, to give praise and blessings to life.  praising God and being grateful every day is a key to the victory of your soul.

Affirmations:

Lord, I do give thee thanks for the

abundance that is mine.

In the name I AM THAT I AM,

I AM expanding this day all that I have

that is of God–through love, through

praise, through thanksgiving!

Praise God in everyone you meet.  Try and give everyone you meet a positive spin.  Give yourself the assignment to find something wonderful about every person you meet–then tell it to them.  That something may be just what they need to lift them out of the doldrums or to dispel the sense that there is nothing really special about them.  There is something special about everyone, and you can help them see what it is.

“This day, O Lord I will give a positive spin to everyone you send me.”  When you tell that to God, you’re going to have the world beating a path to your doorway, because there are so many people who need that positive spin.  I love all of you who read and contribute to my blog.  You are the light!

Mission Possible

21 Aug

Lifetime after lifetime we have desired to return to the state of love and wholeness that we knew in “Eden.”  Through many ups and downs along the way, we’ve done lots of great things and made tremendous spiritual progress.  Though it takes some effort, paradise can be regained once we understand and apply the knowledge of communing with the I AM Presence.  As Ascended Master El Morya says, “The trek upward is worth the inconvenience!”

chart-of-your-divine-self0011.jpg

As the Aquarian age dawns, there is a great spiritual awakening taking place on earth.  It has been prophesied as an age of freedom, peace and enlightenment, a time of technological progress combined with spiritual development.  It can be a time when the spirit of cooperation becomes the basis of every relationship–cooperation between God and humanity, and between people everywhere.  This age gives us an ideal opportunity to accelerate spirituality and realize our divine mission so that we can unite as a powerful force for planetary healing and change.  This is the time to tune in to our missions and go for it!  However, this may sometimes be easier said than done.

When our souls first descended into matter, our mission were crystal clear.  We knew exactly what we needed to do.  Today that sense of mission may be vague or incomplete.  And the experience of Spirit’s constant presence may have diminished.  Whether conscious of it or not, the soul retains the memory of its mission and its oneness with the Divine.  She remembers a freedom of movement and consciousness not normally experienced in the physical world.

Our souls have been evolving as long as they have been sojourning in the material universe.  When we first descended into matter, we were still very much aware of the Presence of God with us.  As long as we maintained the connection with the I AM Presence, everything was fine.  But after thousands of years of evolution, souls adapted more and more to the denser vibrations of matter.  This resulted in a loss of memory of our origin, our home of light, and of the true nature of ourselves as spiritual beings.  perceptions became clouded, and many lost sight of their source and the mission they came to accomplish.

And so we went forth to be the manifestation of our Father-Mother God, sons and daughters who could put on more and more of those spheres of light which we call God consciousness.  So it is in this God consciousness that we live and move and have our being.  This we must not forget…  As surely as we are here and now; we are still in that (Great) Central Sun.  We are in the beginning and we are in the ending.  We do not have to get anywhere–we have to know who we are now.  This absolute immaculate concept of our identity is the foundation of every quest and pursuit.

-Elizabeth Clare Prophet

Many experiences in the material world serve to reawaken within us the memory of the soul’s calling.  They remind us that there is a sacred purpose to life on earth and a divine mission to accomplish. Some already know their mission and are working to fulfill it.  Others are still searching and seem to be waiting for the true mission to begin.  Often a single lifetime will be devoted to fulfilling only a portion of the mission.

The soul is destined for such a great and noble good…

The soul must always hurry to this goal, that it can by every

available means come to the eternal good that is

God–for it is for that the soul was created

-Meister Eckhart

We are all emissaries of God.  It is our reason for coming to earth.  Each one has a special role to play in serving life, whether it’s doing a particular job or imparting an essential virtue.  We all hold points of light, points of identity as representatives of God.  The key is discovering the meaning of life on earth and our special mission to make contact with our highest spiritual self, the I AM Presence.  We are still connected to our I AM Presence, just as we were when we descended into matter.  Answers to question like “Who am I?”  and “Why was I born?” can be found by meditating on the I AM Presence.

“There is absolutely no limit to what you can know and do if you will but bend the knee before your own God Presence, I AM Presence.  Know, then, that keeping the commandments and obeying the laws of God are prerequisites to your receiving the dispensations of God.  Yet, we shun no one. And we help, to the fullest extend of the laws of God, all who will simply look up to the sun of their I AM Presence and say O God, help me!  This all you need to say.  It is sufficient prayer.  It allows the angels to enter your life and turn things around and set things right and direct you on your course to accomplish the mission that God has anointed you to in this hour.”

-Archangel Raphael

Cultivate Gratitude

17 Jul

Gratitude is strengthening because when we are grateful we establish a figure-eight flow of love from our heart to the heart of God.  And when we send love and gratitude to God, light and blessings return to us.  If we don’t take a moment in our busy day to feel and express our profound gratitude to the spiritual Source that continuously gives us breath and life and opportunity, we are not tapping the tremendous resource of energy that is available to use at any hour of the day or night.

Sometimes we fail to make the most of the blessings we have been given because we dwell on the negatives instead of noticing the richness of our life.  Something beautiful happens and all we can think of is the one thing that went wrong.  Gratitude can help us gain back our heart perspective–the perspective that whatever is happening in our life, it is an opportunity, even a gift, that can help us open our heart and grow.

When we consciously cultivate gratitude, we get into the habit of seeing the positives.   We don’t take things apart before they’ve even had a chance to breathe the breath of life.  We are naturally more balanced and at peace, and therefore we criticize less and we blame less.  We make the most of what we have, and we enjoy life more.

But listen to me: for one moment, quit being sad.

hear blessings dropping their blossoms around you. God.

-Rumi

When we have gratitude, we see with our heart.  One of the ways we can consciously cultivate gratitude and begin seeing with the heart is to look for opportunities to appreciate others–to show them how grateful we are for them.  When we appreciate others, we share in their blessings.  “Appreciation is a wonderful thing,” Voltaire said.  “It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.”

Cultivating gratitude is learning to treat each other as we so often treat children, cherishing their every effort and cheering them on.  No matter how crude a child’s offering, it is always pure.  It doesn’t matter what they’ve drawn or what they made, their work is beautiful and they need us to appreciate their effort.  When a child sees that we are grateful for that effort, he or she will make another effort and then another.  When someone is sincerely grateful for something you’ve done, doesn’t it make all the difference?  Doesn’t it make yo want to do i again and again?

Love is to learn from everything, to see the gifts of God

and the generosity of God in everything.

-Sheikh Muzaffer

Not only is gratitude and appreciation empowering, but it is healthy.   Researchers at the Institute of HeartMath have shown that emotions like anger and frustration put a strain on the heart and other organs.  Emotions like love, compassion and appreciation, on the other hand, have been shown to create harmony in the body, leading to enhanced immunity and improved hormonal balance.  “Scientist discovered a dramatic demonstration of love’s transforming power when they looked at the difference between the effects of love and frustration,” writes David McArthur and Bruce McArthur.  Frustration creates a chaotic pattern in our heart rate variability, which is the speeding up and slowing down of our heart rate.  In contrast, they say, a deep heartfelt feeling of sincere appreciation produces a balanced, ordered pattern that is generally associated with efficient cardiovascular function.  “It is a dynamic example of the transforming power of love operating at the level or our physical bodies,” say the authors. “When this pattern is present in the heart, other systems in the body are strongly affected by its order and efficiency.”

Gratitude is so powerful that it can raise up or bring down an entire civilization.  We can talk about everything that brought down the world’s great civilizations, even as far back as the lost continent of Atlantis, but it all boils down to the failure to give gratitude for the Spirit. When we are grateful for something, we acknowledge the giver, we take care of the gift we have been given and we share it with others.  We realize that the true measure of success is not what we have achieved but whether or not we have used our God-given talents to bring out the best in others.  When we have gratitude , we want to give more because our cup is overflowing,

If the only prayer you say in your whole life

is “thank you,” that would suffice.

-Meister Eckhart
