7/31/11 Humor is the best tool in combating stress and dealing with illness. A happy heart is good medicine. You can find joy and heal through laughter. It transforms a stressful situation to a slightly entertaining one. Humor disengages fear because it changes your perspective of the past and future; leaving you right where you belong~with the present. It truly is a gift. Smile!
7/30/11 Choosing to turn your thoughts in a more positive direction can be beneficial to you. Consciously replacing doubts and fears with positive statements can inspire you to achieve your goals, regardless of the challenge. See your fears as unproductive beliefs; gaining strength to turn them around. Empowering statements lend focused energy and diminish anxiety; providing you with confidence!
When God is present in a mind,it begins to flow with a new kind of thought. We are to have a mind permeated with life-giving thoughts.
7/29/11 “Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Don’t lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them~ every day begin the task anew.” St. Fransis The soul is strengthened by trials and suffering and those trials speak in our consciences. God whispers in Love, but shouts to you in your pain with a megaphone. Listen to hear which one.
What do you believe? If the Spirit within dies, so will the world around you wither and crumble. Show your Light as an example.
7/28/11 What we see is what we believe. Yet the universe was created in unimaginable abundance. For every limit, there is something beyond it. There is a solution ot every problem we may be facing. If only we believed! Look more; see more. Wonder if there is more available to you than you have been settling for. Notice the blessings and signs of plenty around you at all times.
7/27/11 We can retire from a job or career but not from life. We need to do everything with our whole soul. If we breathe passion and energy into what we do each day, others will experience that joy with and through us. We each have a gift, and what we do with it is up to us. It is never too late to be what you might have been. Enjoy the life you are living as if it were the only one! Love more.
Sleep deprivation negatively impacts your physical and mental health, as well as your relationship with Divine Spirit.
7/26/11 Lack of sleep, whether ongoing or the result of a single night’s wakefulness, puts stress on the body and mind. Sleep is often sacrificed for “so called” more important obligations. However, we are disrupting the body’s natural rhythm. A short nap can boost energy and clear your senses. Don’t allow guilt to keep you from being your best. You nourish your soul every time you renew your energy, improving mood and memory!
When the well is dry, we know the worth of water. Dirty water cannot be washed, and the reflection is dark. See clearly with vision.
7/25/11 Nature never looks as delightful as when it is reflected by water. It is a smiling portrait of Divine workmanship and in perfect harmony with creation. It does not struggle, but is naturally filled with the designer’s beauty. The waves gently ripple, and the rivers are roads which move to carry us where we need to go. Let go and be carried by the Love that presides over us all!
People ask you for criticism~but they only really want praise. Life holds 2 good things~freedom of thought and freedom of action.
7/24/11 Releasing baggage from our past allows us to move forward. Our experiences become a part of who we are. We can make a conscious decision to release the emotional bondage we have experienced in the past. We will feel lighter and free to devote our full attention to our present life, without anger or fear of the future ~ only love!
7/23/11 Don’t neglect the unique gifts inside you. Find time with no obligations except toward the inner world and what’s going on there. To maintain inner harmony, it is essential to ransom time for solitude every day; deliberately seeking peace of mind. Solitude is necessary for creativity to flourish. Life will rush back fuller, more vivid than before. Seek balance.
Our thoughts carry with them a spiritual charge. The mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace.
7/22/11 Sometimes it is important to trust our intuition. We encounter situations in which some little indefinable impulse in our body goes off, and we feel uneasy. We try ignoring this sensation, but our inner being tells us there is something wrong. Use this information; your Spirit always knows the right answer. Listen.

I believe everyday is a gift from our Creator. As we age, some may fear the unknown~death. People who become aware of their mortality find they have actually gained freedom to live. They have found they have an appreciation for the present. We are all here to contribute love, forgiveness, and service. As I age, I want to nourish my soul's purpose. If we are open to grace, people will appear in our lives to encourage growth of our souls. Allow me to provide daily nourishment through loving words, because joy is our birthright. I call these my daily "Truth Vitamins" for spiritual health. Join me in discovering together our inner soul purpose with "Love~that's all there is".
