Today’s Quote: “You don’t have to go back and deal with childhood issues, because those childhood issues produced a vibration within you that you are still offering — which is producing today issues. You can shift your vibration a whole lot easier when you’re dealing with today issues, than trying to deal with childhood issues. It’s the same vibration. That vibration that was creating childhood issues, now it’s creating today issues. Deal with it in your now. ‘Which thought feels better? Which thought feels better? Which thought feels better?’ ” —Abraham
The double gongs were used by the oba (king) during the Emobo ceremony to drive away evil spirits. The carvings on this gong, one of only 6 known to exist, depicts the oba supported by his military commander and his heir. This is one of the oldest surviving African ivory sculptures.
This figure most likely stood on an altar dedicated to a deceased oba. His attire indicates that he is a court official and the leopard tooth necklace was only worn by warriors. The horn that the figure once held may have been used for ceremonial purposes.
My good friend Raycurt gave me this enlightening book many years ago, along with parts two and three. I found there to be many golden nuggets of spiritual truths, messages that I could vibrate with. Many of his suggestions for living a spiritual life are ways of being that I haven’t yet matured into. However, I am growing in each moment and am loving the process. Below are quotes by Swami Krishnapada which I felt were interesting, uplifting, and informative.
In 2012, my cubicle neighbor at work and good friend Valerie dropped “Secret the Power” onto my desk. Valerie is the amazing soul that introduced me to Abraham Hicks, New Thought, and the Law of Attraction. She advanced my world view immensely in the several years that we worked together and I will forever have gratitude and love in my heart for this incredible woman. I’d like to share some highlights from the book which I found particular helpful to my spiritual growth.
“You are meant to be victorious! You are meant to be happy! You are meant to have an amazing life!”
This tiny book is filled with invaluable wisdom perfect for those of us who are aware of and acknowledge that we are spiritual beings first. I highly recommend reading this book, especially if you are facing a tough time and are in need of some enlightened words to bring clarity to your mind and understanding to your heart. Below are some highlights from the book that I found particularly insightful.
In the summer of 2012, I sat on my floor meditating when a voice seemed to fill the silence. It simply said, very clearly, “Reiki.” I thought, what? I had heard of Reiki but didn’t know very much about it. I made the decision to listen to the voice and promptly began researching Reiki programs in the area. I found one presenting an open house in the coming weeks and registered. Since that time, I have completed Reiki levels one and two. Besides the obvious health benefit of relaxing the body, the most important lesson that I am learning from this energy healing system, is that of becoming more in tune with intuition and listening to that small inner voice that only has your best interest at heart.
Many optimistic, spiritually minded people believe that a great change is taking place across the earth. This change is being hailed as a spiritual awakening or shift in consciousness that will eventually lead to a more peaceful and loving energy on the planet. Individuals who undergo the ascension process will act to usher in this vibrational change. One interesting topic that I have seen associated with this theorized awakening, is the idea of “ascension symptoms.”
Ascension symptoms are signs that one is indeed going through the ascension process. The purpose of the ascension process is to heal from past traumas (from this life time and generationally) and to come to the realization of one’s true nature as a spiritual being. I believe that as we lose the negative baggage of the past, old-stale-blocked energy is released causing outward physical manifestations.
Hey you busy person! Don’t go another moment without considering all of your selves before making that next decision. That’s right. All of your selves! I am referring to your Mental-Self, your Physical-Self, your Spirit-Self, and your Soul-Self. You are all of these aspects, and each affects your daily life even if you are not aware of it!
When we take time to consider all of the different aspects of our being, we make better choices – whether they be seemingly insignificant decisions or critical life-changing ones. These better choices lead to less worry, stress, internal anger and disappointment. In other words, we will live happier lives.
