Empowering Self

Do you contribute to the strife and confusion in the world?

People often think that if they don't stand by their principles and point of view their life will be compromised. Sometimes, however, we need to find a common ground with which to work so that we do not create a greater disaster or imbalance to society and to ourselves. If we willingly choose to heal our lives individually, we will actually be moving towards healing the world.

Is your life meaningful?

As we crave to enjoy more for our lives and pray for increased blessings, we need to be reminded that along with increased blessings comes greater responsibilities and stronger faith. Patience is a beautiful attribute; it is often something we seem to chase after yet fail to grasp. Patience is required in order to acquire a fruitful and successful end result. If you have a goal that you what to work towards, it requires more than wishful think, it requires determination, resilience and a strong will to keep going no matter what surfaces. Trust me!

Be kind to yourself today!

When is the last time you got out of bed and told your self, your mind and body how wonderful you are? Today, why don't you love yourself a little deeper, laugh a little louder and stroke your body and let it know it is valued and loved by you? The best part of your day starts when you get out of bed and send loving messages to your body! Do you realize that your body is a living organism and hears all the messages of your mind and heart? If you want your body to treat you well, you must also treat your body with loving-kindness.

Keep your focus on your joy!

Even when there is turmoil on the outside world, don't let it get in the inside of you and ruin your true sense of inner peace. We can't stop the trouble in the world or all of our problems and hurts but we can, however, refuse to allow them to penetrate into the depths of our mind or inner being. It is very important to stay conscious of where you are placing your thoughts and stop them from entering on the inside of you.

It's time to come to a place of inner peace

Worrying is the thief that often catches you unaware! It will rob you of a peaceful night sleep and it will create tension during your days. Don't let worry and sickness or financial difficulties become your ruler but instead let those feelings spur you to take some positive action. Worry can be helpful when it reminds you that you need to take control of your mind, tell it what you want to think about and let it know that your worry is too often debilitating and false.

Messages of the Heart Matter

We are shown daily how we can life a happier and healthier life but I have discovered that most people refuse to listen to the messages of their heart. You cannot be self-righteous, proud or unwillingly to hear the truth, you need to believe that you have flaws; you have shortcomings and need the mercy and guidance of your Creator to get you through. He wants to always come to our aid but if we turn our heart only to material gratification, we will always miss the mark.

Is your hope alive and well?

Could you imagine where people would be if hope didn't exist? That's a valuable and priceless commodity. Many people today have allowed themselves to sink into depression and loneliness. I realize that you can't build a life on "hope" alone. Part of this is true - you can't build anything on just hope, but it's a good start to a solid foundation. Hoping for something to happen, and then actively pursuing your hope is the ideal way to achieve greatness. All successful people started out hoping to achieve something great.

Use your obstacles for your good

When you maintain the right attitude, your Creator will use your difficult times for your good. Nothing happens for a worthless purpose, but rather is divinely planned. Life actually happens on purpose! That is why you need to stay positive and know that when you maintain the right attitude, things will, with time, begin to shine brightly.

Believe that you are never alone.

Sometimes we want to move forward in our lives but we feel inadequate or unsure of our own knowledge and strength. If we would stay in hope and trust in a Source far greater than our own strength, nothing is impossible. When you have unshakable faith, that is, believe without a shadow of a doubt, something different and wonderful will come into your life because you are receiving the favor of your Creator, who is your partner - nothing is impossible. Please note, however, you cannot simply sit and ���Hope', you also must take appropriate action and be prepared for your success.

Do you know what your purpose is for your life?

It is important to distinguish between the truth and error. If you cannot make that determination, you will falter often and feel deeply challenged and/or defeated.To be able to discern truthfully for your life really starts at early childhood. We are taught by our parents first to know the truth and speak the truth but if you have not had that advantage, it would greatly serve you and your life if you were prepared now to make right choices and valued decisions for your life.
