Be Still My Soul 💛

Our lives can be either driven by our schedules or by spirit. They can be driven by the constant chatter of our minds or by a place of calm. They can be driven by impulse or by wisdom.

Precious, sacred silence is one of our most essential friends. Our silent time reminds us of who we are and it gives us access to infinite wisdom from which we are guided when making our daily decisions. So why is it so difficult to write it on today’s schedule?

Many of us now have a spiritual practice during which we pray for assistance, read the word of God, meditate, focus on gratitude or find ways to inspire our heart. But as we know, the world pulls ferociously in different directions. It begs us to pay attention, to divide our time, to distract our focus and to be busier than it’s good for the soul.

It takes a mindful effort and awareness to revisit our priorities often, and make the time to connect with spirit. It’s the most important thing we will do in the day. And when we do it first, the rest of the day is driven by moments of intuition gained from connecting mindfully with the source of all love, peace and light.

This is not a duty or an effort. We don’t work to be more spiritually connected; it is who we are. All we have to do is set aside time to check in and to let the noise drop away for long enough to reveal the beauty and calm that resides within us. And if we can just hover there…open… For a moment without jumping in with a thought, within that stillness, is when we’re able to activate our soul’s wisdom.

Having a time during the day to calm the mind and still the soul can be a challenging practice. But that is one of those things that will have lasting consequences in our lives. We deserve to create moments of internal peace for ourselves. Moments to gain higher intuition and guidance. The rewards of doing this for ourselves will reach across all aspects of our being. Every day is a good day to begin learning or to recharge our practice. It’s always better to have progress over perfection.

Our goal for this week is to create more peaceful moments, to quiet our minds, be still and listen. We can ask for inspiration, breathe and take a moment to write down what we feel. As we’re able to keep those notes throughout the week, we will see that God does speak to us. Directly to our heart ♥️ That internal peace is always available to us. Silence and peace can become our new friend. God wants to remind us that we can create moments to be still, to Still our souls and to know that He is God. Invite more of that light and wisdom into your day and you’ll feel the difference.

May we quiet our words, calm our thoughts, soften our hearts and still our souls daily, so that we may listen, be open and receive. And most importantly, let spirit lead.

Hope that you can make it to class tonight at 7PM to give yourself the gift of strengthening your Body Mind and Spirit. Come release stress and negativity & allow yourself recharge and renew. You’ll feel amazing, you’ll be proud of yourself and you won’t regret it.

Unfortunately Class will be Cancelled for the next 6 weeks. But we will return to I person class in March. For now, do your best to take care of your body, mind and spirit. Remember that God loves you, He wants to hear from you! So, notice His hand in your life and thank Him for your many blessings. He will guide you on what to focus on each hour of your day. & don’t forget that you can do all things the Christ who strengthens you.



What’s Your Focus? 💖

I recently remembered an experience that I had teaching a group of kids ages 8 to 11. After exercising, we tried to quiet our minds and bodies for a moment. I encouraged them to take a moment to feel gratitude for the body that God has given them. To think about how amazing their bodies are, the way they work and the ability that we have to move, exercise and to even be able to choose what thoughts to have. Our bodies and minds are a blessing that we often take for granted.

During the meditation portion of the class, I asked the kids to close their eyes and FOCUS on allowing their bodies to relax. To just feel their breath & be in a moment of gratitude.

I guided them through a meditation where I asked them to see themselves in the most beautiful and peaceful place they could think of. I encouraged them to focus on visualizing themselves being the in the presence of God. To allow themselves to be open to feeling a hug from Him and to truly try to listen to what God was telling each of them individually.

I then opened my eyes for a moment to check on the kids and noticed that some of the kids were smiling! Others looked focused and peaceful. I was even able to notice a little girl who had tears coming down her face. I realized at that moment that each child in that room who wanted to feel God had an opportunity to personally connect to Him. I realized that if each one of us chooses to connect to God and focuses on that, we can definitely feel Him too! It was a beautiful experience for me to see how God is able to provide what each soul needed at that very moment. The kids were able to connect to Him and to each personally have their own experience with God in that very moment.

I then asked the kids to guard and treasure in their hearts the feelings and the words that were coming to them from God. I know that when we’re truly wanting to feel God and we come to Him with that full purpose and real intent in our hearts, He will make Himself known unto us. He will bring peace to our hearts and let us know He is there.

After the meditation I asked the kids to gently open their eyes. I could feel the peace and light in the room. I asked them what they felt or what they could see, and one little girl smiled and said: “ I CAN STILL SEE JESUS even with my eyes open” I thought wow! Wouldn’t it be amazing if we all could “see” Jesus even with our eyes open?!” Could the focus of this very hour be placed on the Savior? Could we try to see the hand of God in this day? & in this very moment know that He is present in our lives?

I felt at that moment that I want my focus to be placed more on Christ and less on fear, complaining or focusing in the things that are not going right or that we may be lacking etc. I want to focus more on trusting and believing in Him rather than not seeing Him in my day to day life.

After the activity was over, I gave that same little girl a ride home. As I was driving she pointed out the window and said: “Look at those beautiful red flowers!!! 🌹 Isn’t God amazing? He made them so bright and pretty!”…We talked about how hard it would be to describe that bright color red to someone who is blind?! It was impossible to come up with the right words to describe that color and beauty. We talked about how blessed we are to be able to see the beauty of those flowers and all of the things that God created.

The words form that sweet little girl, have stayed with me ever since I hear them. “I can still see Jesus even with my eyes open!” So now, I’m trying to focus the “lenses of my vision” on noticing God more around me. I’m trying to purposely change my thoughts and to direct them more toward God. To ask Him to help me, guide me and inspire me to see Him and feel Him hour by hour.

I invite anyone who is able to read this message to change your focus and try it out at least for today to see if you feel differently. But to purposefully try to focus more on seeing the hand of God in your life today. To focus on gratitude, Joy and peace rather than focusing on stressing out about all kinds of things that may be going on. Today, I’m choosing to keep my eyes open to Him. To feeling God, being present with Him and allowing Him to light the hours of my day from one moment to the next.

I invite you to choose to focus on seeing God and focusing on giving all things to him. HE IS BIGGER AND GREATER THAN ANY OF YOUR PROBLEMS. HE WILL HELP YOU AND TAKE CARE OF YOU. Allow yourself to be open to feeling him close to you and around you. Trust in the God who is able to remove your burdens, your pain and instead allow yourself to feel the pure love that God has just for you.

I pray that as we practice this goal of changing what we focus on, that we will be able to change how we feel, how we spend our time and the energy that we put into each moment of our day. So, remind yourself today and say to yourself; “God will help me. He is loving, kind and a giver of good gifts. It’s in His nature to want to comfort me and provide for me. So I come to Him with a pure heart and with Faith knowing that He will take care of me moment bu moment. He will show me what to focus on and allow me to see Him even with my eyes open.” 💛

Hope to see tonight at 7:00pm to allow our minds and bodies to release stress and to focus on renewing ourselves mentally, physically and spiritually. Don’t forget that we’re the ones who need to dig deep and find the motivation to do this for ourselves. 💪🏼🥰 Try to remind yourself of the reasons WHY you want to exercise, release stress and calm your mind through prayer and meditation. Just show up and I promise that you’ll leave class feeling way better than before you got there. You’ll go home feeling peaceful, renewed and filled with positive energy.

I hope that you can make it and invite others to benefit as well. ❤️

You’ve got this! God and His divine light are all around you to fill you completely and give you energy and strength. keep going and doing your best. 💪🏼🥰❤️🙏🏼

Trust In God & In Yourself ♥️

As this New Year begins we may have all kinds of goals that we set for ourselves. It’s great to set goals but sometimes we want to work on everything all at once and goal setting can also feel overwhelming.

Today I want to remind you of the gift of being here at this very moment. A close friend of mine lost her mom unexpectedly yesterday. 🙁 It’s been heartbreaking for all of us who knew her mom. It’s during moments like this, when we realize that none of us are promised our tomorrow. We really don’t know how long we have here in earth & it’s important to remember that life should truly be lived and enjoyed one day at a time.

I believe that God wants us to be wise in the ways in which we use our time. Setting goals that are important and that align to God is more important than adding all kinds of stress and worries about things we can’t control. So, today, try to take a moment to slow down a little. Focus on the truly important things in your life and be grateful for the day that you have today. For the opportunity to start a New year, for the chance to focus your energy on goals that can lift you to a higher level. Remember that God doesn’t want you to figure everything out or run faster than you have strength. He just wants you to trust Him in your process of becoming one day at a time.

He wants each one of us to know that our life has a purpose. When God created us He had a plan in mind and a mission for each one of us to accomplish. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. God wants us to be hopeful, to trust Him and to do our best to accomplish His plans for us. He’s not asking us to figure everything out right now. Instead, He’s asking us to TRUST HIM and to trust in His plan for our lives.

Think of the ways in which you can trust more in God this year. How will you show Him that you’ll do that for Him? As we purposefully place our trust in Him & come closer to Him, our purpose will become clearer and He will be better able to guide us toward becoming who He desires us to become. ❤️

I promise that if you make it a daily goal to speak to God and seek for His wisdom, the Holy Ghost, who is the comforter, from the presence of God, will come upon you and bring you peace. Which is one of the best ways to feel God in our lives. The comforter will also bring us that assurance that God hears our prayers, is taking care of us and ALL will be ok.

As we choose to act on communicating with God and continue to have faith in God’s power, He will strengthen us individually and give us the daily wisdom for what we should focus our attention on each day. Remember that we can’t just wish for things to happen and that’s it. When we have faith in God we gain a stronger desire to ACT. We become more willing to put in the work necessary toward becoming who we are meant to be.

God said; “Whatsoever thing ye shall ask the Father in my name, which is good, in Faith believing that ye shall receive, behold it shall be done unto you.” (Moroni 7:26)

God is ready to bless us when we have a pure heart. We can seek Him and ask Him, BELIEVING that we will receive. How amazing is that? This is where our faith is tested & where God is able to show Himself in our lives.

Christ said; “If ye will have faith in me ye shall have power to do whatsoever thing is expedient in me.” (Moroni 7:33) That promise in His word, reminds us that we will have power through our faith to accomplish the desires of our hearts that align with the desires that God has for us. So, with our Faith in God, we’re better able to see more clearly which goals we should focus on and actually work on accomplishing them.

Having faith also allows us to act as if our goals are on their way. That belief and trust in God and in ourselves that we will make our goals possible with His help, will bring motivation. We can ask for daily wisdom to know what to focus on for this day, and we can move forward toward accomplishing that goal.

Remembering to break down our goals into doable steps and do a little each day until we eventually accomplish the bigger goals we’ve set. The more that we’re able to accomplish the small things the more momentum we will have to accomplish the bigger things. Practice seeing yourself accomplishing your daily goals. Visualize yourself doing it and having divine help as you achieve what is in your heart. Allow yourself to feel yourself getting Healthier, stronger, becoming more peaceful, spiritually aligned to God and accomplishing what He needs you to do on this earth and with the time that we each have here. ❤️

When you have those days when notice yourself comparing where you are to where you want to be, focus on this one question: “What single, small decision can I make right now to move forward in my process of becoming? Write down your thoughts and feelings and be aware of what comes to your mind. That’s one way we can know which action to take.

Also, there may be times when we feel like giving up on our goals because we slipped or made a mistake. But remember to be kind to yourself, Don’t give up. Just take a moment to evaluate what led to the mistake or the negative thought and wether your process should be modified to help prevent it from happening in the future. If you know your goals are worth working toward you will keep trusting and moving forward with faith in God.

Remember that rather than focusing solely on the outcome of the goal, put your energy into the process of becoming. In a process, every moment is important. You can enjoy feelings of small daily successes. You can learn from setbacks, rather than treating them as signs of failure. In a process of becoming you can find joy in each moment, you can be grateful for the opportunity to be a work in progress. You can remind yourself that it’s important to continue to LOVE YOURSELF and strengthen your relationship with yourself DAILY. Don’t forget to be compassionate and speak kindly to yourself. Trust that as long as you are working the process, which is an essential part of exercising faith in God, reaching your goal will be the natural outcome.

So, make it a point today to re-evaluate your goals. Think about what you’re working toward and what God wants you to place as your top priorities. Align yourself to that knowledge and that desire to work toward the things which are important.

Make a plan, start small, visualize and give yourself grace and the motivation that you need to accomplish each thing. If we really want something, we have to work toward it. The difference is that we will trust in God and with His help we can do ALL THINGS! We can even find pleasure and motivation in the work that we do on ourselves and on our daily goals. We can Find joy in this journey and move forward trusting and having faith in God and in yourselves. ❤️

How amazing is it that we can talk to our creator daily. That we can let Him know all that is going on in our heart & mind. How amazing that we can receive wisdom and power from the presence of God to accomplish what need to do for each day.

We don’t need to run faster than we have strength. We don’t need to feel overwhelmed. We can instead focus on asking God what to focus on today and go from there. Accomplishing our priorities and what God has put in our heart that day will bring peace and the assurance that we are truly doing the most important things and God will guide us with the rest. We will know that we are in His hands and all will be ok. 

The most Important goal we can accomplish in our lives, is to be able to have a relationship with God. To consider Him our friend. To seek His wisdom and have the ability to Hear Him and do what He asks. The only way to do this is to practice hearing Him daily and then GO & DO.

God will help us achieve our physical, spiritual, emotional or temporal goals. He knows what’s in our hearts and because He loves us and wants the best for us, HE WILL HELP US. TRUST HIM AND TRUST IN YOUR ABILITY TO DO THIS FOR YOURSELF. ❤️

With God all things are possible! You can do it! Count on Him, do your best & go for it. ❤️ HOPE, ACT & BECOME.

Our SPIRITUAL GOAL for the month is to accomplish a few small goals. Set 1 to 2 goals that you feel align with what God would want you to do. Break down the steps and set aside the time daily to act on them. Ask God in Faith to help you & get to work. Continue to give yourself daily grace. You can do it! Plus, God has promised the POWER for you to accomplish it. Stay motivated and make it it happen. ❤️

Our PHYSICAL GOAL for the week is to exercise at least 3 days and to eat as clean as we can. Choose nutrient rich snacks and try to remove the sugary drinks. Try to be conscious of your choices and the different things that are going into your body. Make it easy for yourself by having healthy snacks available so you don’t get super hungry and reach for the bag of chips in the pantry. Make the decision to help yourself. Track it if it helps you and you’ll notice the difference in your mood and energy. Your body will thank you for choosing good food 🙂 ❤️

Unfortunately CLASS IS CANCELLED TONIGHT. I have sick kiddos this week. But we’ll resume again next week. Do your best and focus on the important things today.

I pray that you feel inspired to reach out to God and seek His peace, strength and light today. I know He has helped me with this and I know He will do it for anyone who teaches up to Him.

Love you all and thank you for having a desire to keep God’s light flowing through you. He’s got you & I know you’ll Keep it going! 😉 Trust Him! Share your light with others & DO YOUR BEST ONE DAY AT A TIME. ❤️
