WHAT DO YOU CRAVE?
This life is short and is calling you. Answer that call with bravery and self-honesty. If we live the life that is no longer resonating with us, we are lying to ourselves and everyone around us. We are helping no one, though we might think we are. We cannot live for, or change anyone around us, but we certainly can f...or ourselves. When you let yourself be the person who you really crave to be, then your vibrations and personal presence will be altered greatly, and what you are you will attract. This means that through these actions, you will then attract the right mate, career, and opportunities that serve your higher self. Abandon listlessness, apathy and stagnation. "You" are waiting for you to discover yourself.
You are stuck to nothing and no one. We are all given free will. If we did not have free will then life would be boring indeed because we'd all be living the same life, making the same choices with the same outcome. Now use it!
If you want your life to change, start by changing yourself. If we stay who we currently are, then all we'll accomplish is recreating the life we already have. Profound changes in life start with profound changes of self. This would be no different than asking to see a different face in the mirror. Life is but a reflection of us and our thoughts about ourselves!
There’s no greater blessing than to be a vehicle for Spirit.
And yet the ego fights it and resists it, asking, Why me?
Why me, and why this life?
"I am not worthy yet!"
You picked the wrong person, God, I am not a good choice.
We get frightened and back away from the very thing we crave,
from the very thing that will change our lives
into that which we desire so much.
I 'm Sorry!
These words are so overused. I am so aware of how many times this is used in any given conversation by women in particular. My cousin used to do this constantly and I brought it to her attention. Ladies, bring this into your awareness and if you are doing this ...stop it!
Also if I gave her a gift or did something special for her...she would say,
"oh, you didn't have to do that."
I told her I did things because I wanted to not because I felt I had to.
I taught her just to say, "Thank you."
How did we get to the point where we apologize for everything and don't even realize we are doing it and why is it so hard to accept a gift, a compliment or a kindness?

Spiritual Bounty In A Box!
The next time you are around someone who is putting together a shelving unit or something similar that comes in a box, take the time to really observe them. It will tell you a lot where they are on their path. It will also tell you the same thing about yourself. I used to absolutely abhor this activity. It wa...s very frustrating for me. Now, I am not bothered at all.
I read the instructions thoroughly after unpacking everything making sure all the parts are there before I proceed. Sometimes just opening the box itself comes with instructions. Then I just start.
Step 1 and so on.
If frustration is present at any point, I step away from it and do something else for a bit and go back to it. It usually is smooth sailing from there. I can tell from this one activity how much I have grown spiritually. I do not allow frustration to take over. For most of us the norm is to just keep on getting more frustrated until we screw it up somehow and have to take apart something we just put together. It is not uncommon to see some people have a temper tantrum with this activity. We may have tried to skip steps and ignore the book of instructions that may be five pages long. Then the cherry on the top of this particular cake is we blame the manufacturer or the manual that we only glanced at etc. I think you get the picture.
What I am saying here it is time to hold ourselves big time accountable and take responsibility and using due diligence really take our spiritual learning and practices seriously.
When you lay out all the parts of your life and take inventory...is there a vital piece or two missing? If there is, this plane ain't going to fly.
Is the box packed up as tightly as the day you got it covered in dust in the garage of the mind somewhere?
Our world is evolving and so are we,
so get out your spiritual tool box and get busy!
