Spiritual & Physical Self Reliance

There’s a quote which says: “The world is busy with its own cares, sorrows and joys, and pays little heed to you. There is but one great pass-word to success,—self-reliance.” William George Jordan.”

Think about those words for a minute. The world pays little attention to what each one of is doing. We can’t depend on everyone else to take care of us, we have to learn to take care of ourselves physically and spiritually. We are responsible for what we do with our time, the choices we make, the things we allow to enter our minds and for the efforts we make toward becoming more self reliant throughout our lives. We know that we are ultimately in charge of our own Spiritual and Physical wellbeing. We are the ones that can chose of our own free will and choices to better ourselves, to make the changes necessary to be able to let go of the bad habits or the dependency that we place on other people or things to determine “our joy” our “emotions” etc. It’s only when we realize the we don’t depend on anyone or anything else for our spiritual and physical growth (except for God) that we will be able to experience the power and Strength that comes from making our own good choices and decisions that will help us to feel the peace and control in knowing that we have more control of our lives than we think.

Becoming self reliant will allow us to feel strengthened, to choose what is best for ourselves and to feel proud of being able to take care of our own physical, emotional and spiritual needs. To be able to become self-reliant, we must work towards it. Work is physical, mental, or spiritual effort. It requires action from our part. As we do the work necessary toward our goals we will notice that this will bring happiness, self-worth, and prosperity into our lives. Through work, we can accomplish many good things, we can reach goals, learn to strengthen ourselves, bring our own light into our lives and be able to strengthen others as well. We have to remember that it’s not just the wishing but the DOING which brings the results. ??

We can only do this work ourselves, no one else can do this for us. If we want our health to be better, then we must make the changes ourselves. We have to make the choices each day to try to accomplish the goals that we have set for ourselves. We have to choose the right food each day, we have to do the exercises, and set time aside to get rid of stress and to motivate ourselves to do what is right for our health. We can become physically self reliant without having to depend on anything or anyone else to make it happen for ourselves. It will be our choices, our work and our sacrifices that will bring the results that we want in our lives. We can do this! ?

We also have to remember that we are not just physical beings, but we are also spiritual beings as well. Our spirits may require even more care than everything else around us. If our spirit or our mind is weak, we can’t expect to be strong in other things, like controlling our physical cravings or giving ourselves limitations etc. It’s our spirit that brings strength to everything else in our lives. We all know that all of the material things around us are temporary and they will eventually be gone. Even our bodies will age, become weaker and at some point we wi all have to leave this earth. That is why it so important for us to not neglect the spiritual side of ourselves, It is the only thing we will take with us after this life! When we become Spiritually self reliant, we can feed our own souls with all that is good, peaceful and that will bring more light into our lives. We can take care of our own souls daily, we can build our own relationship with God, we can choose to make time to talk to Him, to let Him know how we’re feeling, to read and learn from His words, and to listen to Him after we pray to receive the revelation that He wants to provide for our lives. When we take time to talk to God and to wait to listen to Him we will receive in our hearts the inspiration and revelation that He wants to provide for our lives. We can also choose to listen daily to positive and uplifting messages that will feed our souls & help us to feel peaceful and good. This may require turning off the distractions and saying no to the things that don’t help us feel positive and uplifted.

As we choose of four own free will to take care of ourselves, to draw closer to God and to become physically and spiritually self reliant. We will see how much more strength this will bring into our lives. We will be better able to help ourselves and to be a light to those around us as well. God will be so proud of us for choosing the right things for ourselves. He will open the way and provide the blessings to move us forward towards becoming the best version of ourselves and the person that God intents us to become, 🙂 which will be better than anything else we could ever want for ourselves. 🙂

Here’s a scripture that talks more about that.

For behold, it is not meet that I should command in all things; for he that is compelled in all things, the same is a slothful and not a wise servant; wherefore he receiveth no reward.

Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness;

For the power is in them, wherein they are agents unto themselves. And inasmuch as men do good they shall in nowise lose their reward. (D&C 58:26-28)

Let’s stay focused on doing good for ourselves and on making the right choices. God knows that we can do it! HE TRUSTS US TO DO IT & AS CHILDREN OF GOD WE CAN MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES! We can become spiritually and physically self reliant and we will be rewarded for our efforts in the end. 🙂

Trust in God, believe in Him and know that He is your only true source of peace in your life. YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS WITH HIS HELP & as you do your best, you will be blessed and Everything will work out 🙂

The spiritual goal for the week is: To be spiritually self reliant by making sure that we do what is necessary to come closer to God this week. We can try harder this week to talk to Him and thank Him for all He has given us, maybe we can spend a little time reading something uplifting for our souls and most importantly try to spend a little time listening for His guidance after your prayers. Write down your impressions that come into your heart and go and do them. If you seek Him, He will speak to you.❤️

Our physical goal for the week is: To be physically self reliant by making sure that we take care of choosing what is good to eat, the type of exercise that we must do and how we can mediate and quiet our minds to let go of stress etc. We can choose to take care of ourselves physically and we can be strong to say no to those things that are not good for our health. Tell yourself, “I am in control and I can do this!”

Count on the help that God can provide to remove distractions or things that get in the way of our goals and of becoming self reliant in every way possible. We must count on Him to help us spiritually, to feel God close to our lives and to allow His power to help us change our ways for the better.

Hope you can make it to class tomorrow morning for a wonderful workout, which will help us to let go of stress and to feel stronger! 🙂 We will talk about some weight loss tips and how to feel happy and beautiful in our bodies 🙂 and we will end with an amazing meditation session that will leave us feeling super peaceful, energized, renewed and ready to take on the rest of our week. Hope that we can all benefit from the power that comes from this class. ?? ? God is our source and He’s the one that strengthens us and helps us to do our best and feel great! 🙂 We all need this type of positivity in our lives each week 🙂 Hope you can make it & feel the difference. ?

Don’t forget to do your best today!…Motivate yourself to do all of those things that are good for you and remember to take it one day at a time. You can do this 🙂


Inner Peace

Our lives can be surrounded by chaos, anxiety, fear and the pressures of the constant fast pace world in which we live. It can sometimes be hard to slow down and disconnect from it all to bring into our live the inner peace that we so desperately need.

Most of the time we search for happiness and peace through different means around us. We think that by having more money, a higher social status, popularity, more material possessions or even the way in which we physically look will determine wether we feel “ happy”, “sad”, “peaceful” etc. Most of us don’t realize that the things that surround us are TEMPORARY. We won’t always have them, They are not lasting and we cannot base our levels of joy, peace or happiness on those things. We have to remember that all of these things may bring COMFORT into our lives but we should never let them determine how happy or peaceful we feel.

No material possession, money, looks, pets or even people around us can determine how we feel inside. They may affect us in one way or another because the joy or the peace that we feel from those things comes from OUR CHOICE to allow it to make us feel a certain way. It all has to do with our mental attitude. We determine how we feel and what we allow outside sources to do in our lives. They are not in charge of how we feel…. IT IS ALL UP TO US & what WE CHOOSE.

Remember that we can’t control the comments or actions of others, the way in which we are treated, the chaos in which we live or the challenges that we may be going through. These things shouldn’t ever determine how we feel inside and we shouldn’t ever let them steal our peace. WE ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN PROTECT OUR INNER PEACE. If we take care of ourselves internally, of strengthening our spirits and our souls, NOTHING AROUND US CAN AFFECT US UNLESS WE GIVE IT PERMISSION TO DO SO. this is a mental state which we create for ourselves. Which one will you choose?

Choose to not let any outside sources affect your internal peace. Choose to not let anyone affect your inner happiness and peace. Choose to speak kindly and lovingly about yourself, your body, how it changes and accept it with gratitude knowing that it is a blessing to have it and to be here in this earth another day. Choose to be grateful for your body, your surroundings and most importantly for the spirit that lives inside your body that is here on this earth to learn to grow and to develop. A spirit that is meant to to LEARN how to not be affected by outside sources, but instead be strong and peaceful in the storms of life. A Spirit which connects easily to God. A spirit that desires nothing more than to get to know HIM better, to become God’s friend and to receive all strength and power from the divinity of the Father of our spirits. ❤️

Choose to create for yourself a happy state of mind constantly. Choose to look past the differences of all man and begin looking more frequently at others as the children of God which we all are. Chose to be kind, generous, giving and to do your best each day to please God and to bring that inner peace that can be protected, shielded and kept inside you. Choose to TRUST IN GOD and know that HE will allow you to receive HIS strength and power to do these things and to feel lasting peace and joy internally.

He has said, Learn of me, and listen to my words; walk in the meekness of my Spirit, and you shall have peace in me.” D&C 19:23 When we try to live peacefully with ourselves, with others and when we choose to take in all of the good that is around us, we will be able to strongly feel the spirit and love of God strongly in our lives. That is the true peace and love that can never be removed from us. No outside source, no person, no challenge can steal our inner peace. We can choose to allow God’s peace to be with us more often or to even have it with us permanently. ❤️ He has promised; “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Remember that the peace that God offers is different from the “peace” that the world brings…His peace is lasting and not determined by anything material, popular or that brings power….His peace is a peace of love, humility, kindness, generosity & not easily to be taken away…You’ll know the difference.

Just allow the peace, the light and the joy of God fill you completely today. Do not let outside sources get to you. Remember that you are in control of your mental state and of what you allow to enter. Choose only the good and reject the bad. You are a child of God! He loves YOU!!! & wants you to slow down a little, to let go of the distractions and to FEEL HIS LASTING PEACE in your soul today and EVERY DAY! Do your best each day, Stay strong shielded and protected in the power that God brings you. Choose a peaceful and happy mental state and feel the difference. ??☀️??

Our physical go for the week is to exercise at least three days this week. (One of those days will be tomorrow in class) Part of our goal for the week is to eat one ingredient foods such as fruits and vegetables. If you find a box with lots of ingredients ? put it down and replace it with 1 ingredient food items ???

Our spiritual for the week is to keep our inner peace. I pray that as you read the message you will feel in your heart what God wants you to gain from it and what you’re meant to keep for yourself. Just say to yourself; “My inner peace is controlled by ME, I choose to keep and protect the peace that is inside my soul today” God strengthens me to feel His peace which is different from anything that the world can offer. I am peace, I am love, I am joy.”??

Tomorrow in class we will talk more about inner peace in our meditation. I hope that you can make it tomorrow at 9:30 to strengthen yourself physically, emotionally and spiritually. I know that God wants us to do good things for ourselves like this. 🙂 We Just have to make the sacrifices to make it happen ???? Do your best to strengthen yourself in every way! See you tomorrow! ??

Have a blessed & peaceful day & week.
