Peaceful Wealth 💖

Where does your peace come from? We may all have different answers to this question. Some may say that it comes from financial stability, from accomplishing goals, or from achieving a certain level of physical or emotional standard that we set for ourselves.

As we get older we realize that there are definitely many financial, material, and physical things that bring *COMFORT* into our lives. These things don’t actually bring peace, even though we tend to think that they do.

True internal peace can only come from how we feel within ourselves. It is not defined by our accomplishments or anything physical, material or financial. It’s deeper than that. It has to do with our soul. With how honest we are with ourselves and others and with the type of relationship that we have with God. It allows us to feel more at peace for that moment when we’re called to meet Him. 🤍

In class we often do a meditation to help us disconnect from all material and physical things, to just connect to God. It is in those moments when we can see that internal peace come through. That knowledge of knowing that if we we’re striped of everything, we could still hold on to God, to His love, and to trusting in the plan that He has for each and every one of us. 💛

Gratitude is one of the ways we can connect to internal peace. When we’re grateful, we can easily acknowledge the hand of God in all things. We become even more humble, teachable, patient and loving with ourselves and others. The more that we’re grateful for all that we have and are, the more we’re able to feel peace in knowing that God will continue to provide and take care of us. Having a grateful heart only allows for more blessings to come upon us.

Our goal is to invite internal peace to allow it to be more present with us daily. Remember that peace is already within us and it’s part of who we are as children of God. It just requires us to focus on it a little more. To live in gratitude daily and to feel connected to the the love of God and of ourselves one day at a time. 💗

That way, when things change in our lives and difficulties come, we won’t allow fear or other things to disrupt our internal peace. But instead allow peace to be our anchor to God and to His divine light, love, power and peace for our lives. This will allow us to remain stable and confident in ourselves and in God daily. 💛

Here’s a little meditation to help you today. 💖

As you read, sit comfortably and extend upwards from your seat, lengthen and strengthen your spine, setting your shoulder slightly back to open the heart. Inhale deeply through your nose and take a long exhale. Once again inhale deeply and take a long exhale.

Now imagine your heart glowing with radiant light and allow yourself to feel connected to an unending stream of grace that pours through the top of your head.

*Inhale love and see it filling your heart.

*Exhale love and see it flowing around your loved ones and even out to the entire earth.

*Inhale joy and smile as it enters your heart.

* Exhale joy and watch it envelop your loved ones and all beings.

* Inhale peace and allow it to fill your heart to overflowing, even to the point where you feel it all over your entire soul and body. Allow yourself to flow in peace for a moment.

*Exhale peace and see it wrapped around yourself, your loved ones, all living things and even out to the entire planet.

Back to the first step, and repeat with dedicated, blissful focus.

Isn’t it amazing that something as simple as a breath can make big changes in our mind, body and soul? Using the power of visualization, breathing and praying can allow us to connect to peace. Allow yourself to feel that peace more often and to use that energy to spread love, joy and peace to all beings. 💛

Love you all and hope to see you tonight at 6:30 pm. To give yourself the gift of releasing stress and instead allow yourself to strengthen your Body, Mind and Spirit. 💖🥰🧘🏻‍♀️🌅

Be Kind To Yourself 💖

For the majority of us, self care is usually at the bottom of our to do list or sometimes it’s not even there at all. Our days are focused on giving ourselves in service to others, creating, learning, living, being and doing. Until at the end of the day we realize that we’re just exhausted and we had no time to give to ourselves much of anything.

As I’ve experienced this in my life, I’ve started to realize that self care Self care is a spiritual practice. I believe that as we practice loving ourselves, we will be able to make our connection to God even stronger. Self-care and self-love is the foundation of all spiritual practices. If we don’t honor ourselves, we can’t possibly honor our oneness with God and all of His creations. If we don’t care for ourselves, we are unable to serve others from the empty well. If we don’t see that we are a magnificent reflection of God, of His love and of His goodness then we can’t be God’s magnificent reflection in the world.

As we’re able to love ourselves and to see the light of God flowing within us, we will be better able to express more love for ourselves and for others. It will become easier to make wise choices about the way we spend our time, how much time we spend on social media, what we choose to do with our time or the ways in which we choose to strengthen our body, mind and spirit daily.

We can only become what we accept ourselves as being. So let’s accept our magnificence, our divine connection to God. Our ability to love ourselves MORE and to give more fully to ourselves and to those around us.

Here are a few things that we can practice in the world around us.

💖 Be kind in the way that you think of yourself. Edit out any negative or unkind thoughts.

💖 Be kind to your body in all ways, fueling it with healthy foods, exercise and plenty of joyful activity.

💖 Be kind to yourself by seeing your spirit as a radiant, powerful expression of God‘s love.

💖 Be kind to yourself by taking downtime when your mind, body and spirit requested from you. You will know when you feel resistance-that feeling of dragging yourself from one event to the other. Remember to stop, check in with yourself, get present, take some deep breaths and treat yourself as a beloved child of God. Listen for His wisdom and all else will be accomplished with greater ease.

💖 Lovingly remind yourself that it’s important to care for yourself and that you deserve some time each day for that. You can also say to yourself; I lovingly care for myself knowing that I am a child of God, radiant powerful and beautiful. When I am clear and healthy, I enjoy life more deeply and I love others more fully.

Love you all and I hope that you can grow that love within yourself 💖🙏🏼🥰 You’re in control of your thoughts, feelings and actions. Make them work for your benefit and God will bless you for your good efforts. Tonight we will focus on loving ourselves by taking some time to strengthen our Body, Mind and Spirit. Hope that you can make it at 6:30pm & do this for yourself. 💪🏼🥰💛

I choose Joy 💛

Choosing joy can be hard sometimes. Specially during the times when we’re trying to endure some of the most difficult moments that life has to offer. On some days even the smallest step toward joy can feel like climbing a mountain. The truth is, we can honor a wide range of feelings, in the span of one day, while moving at any pace we choose toward that which is one step lighter.

Research has shown that although some people are born with a more positive disposition, anyone can reprogram their thoughts to foster more feelings of joy and happiness. Once we become aware of the negative repetitive thoughts that keep us distracted and distressed, we can turn toward prayer and positive affirmations to break the cycle. And over time, these new positive thoughts will become habitual.

Some of the best affirmations we can use, can be found in the word of God. Using scripture to regain peace and strength can become one of our best tools to fight against the negative thoughts that try to take over. God wants us to remember that we can choose to Rejoice.

1 Thessalonians 6:16-18 Says; Rejoice evermore.
Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Joy isn’t optional, it is an essential part of those who believe in God. Because we know and trust in a God who created us to have Joy. We know that He wants us to find joy in the journey. He wants us to learn to CHOOSE that for ourselves. & I believe that if it comes from the word of God, He will someday ask us about how much Joy we chose to focus on in our lives.

When we can feel our connection to God, we can start to see that as children of God, He wants us to experience the ups and downs of life, but that through it all we may find joy and focus on the opportunity of seeing God amidst whatever storm we may be facing. He truly can become the God of our circumstances. We can strengthen our faith in Him, notice the good around us and focus on joy one day at a time.

Joy isn’t a feeling that is dependent on our circumstances. It is a response to the goodness of God and our eternal salvation. Choosing joy has very little to do with how we feel and everything to do with how we obey, how we trust and how we believe in the love of God. ❤️

Choosing joy is a spiritual practice, renewing our connection with the divine as we become lighter, more mindful and more peaceful. When in alignment with the spirit of God we can relax and trust that all things will be done according to His will. We will trust and focus on our blessings. We will see that we are safe. We are home in the peace of God. And this is who we really are. 💛

Our goal for the week is to experiment with positive affirmations. Write down your favorite scriptures on your journal or on your phone. Allow negative thoughts and words to move naturally through you without taking up residence.

Love yourself. Complement yourself. Treasure yourself. Forgive yourself. Eat nutritious foods. Get plenty of sleep. Move your body. Keep company with joyful people.

Read uplifting books. Listen to joyful music. Choose inspirational articles, podcasts and movies. Basically BRING ALL THAT IS GOOD AND UPLIFTING INTO YOUR LIFE. 💛

And finally in your heart say to yourself: I open my heart to the possibility of joy. I am grateful for the gifts of today. I trust that my benevolent God has a divine plan for my highest good. I trust in Him and in myself. I choose Joy in my life. 💛🥰
