Portals to Happiness!

Many people believe that there are many paths to happiness: money, love, sex, drugs, a bevy of friends, hard work, prayer, meditation, spirituality, etc. I could go on and on. The truth is that there is only one door to happiness.

When we recognize that we are an infinite spirit, housed in a finite body, this is the first step to walking through the door toward peace and happiness. 

There was a client who came to me riddled with cancer. She fought through the storms in her life to maintain health for a little over 1o years. She discovered, though, a week before our visit that the cancer had metastasized. She was told she didn’t have long to live… perhaps 6 months.

As we talked about it, a peculiar smile spread over her face. I didn’t understand, so I asked her why she was smiling.

She replied, “I have had a good life. Yes, there were struggles. But mostly I have had peace in the past 10 years. Everyday since I first found out I had cancer, I had promised myself to live this present day as if it were my last—never looking back with regret. I feel fortunate to have had 10 years to live freely and unrepressed by my past and fear. I have lived a life that most people never live in just these past 10.”

I asked her, “So, what do you think the secret to happiness is?”

She responded, “First, take care of the loose ends in your life. Fire those who don’t benefit you and have been dragging you down! Get rid of all that no longer serves you! Then you must must must STAY focused on the present.

No happiness exists in the future or in the past. Happiness is happening right here and now. Make friends with all that is in your life now, whether you perceive it to be good or bad. Make laws against living in what you can not change. Float on your human life, as if you were sailing in a boat led by the winds of grace!”

This conversation left me speechless. Even though she was a client, I couldn’t speak for a few minutes. She understood that every session was for the healing of the One Mind that we both share.

I hope this helps you live within the fullness of your life today.

Is Every Moment in the Now a Memory of the Past? Read on:

In the first lesson of A Course in Miracles we learn that a chair is not just a chair. An image of a chair can only be a chair because of all the chairs you have seen in the past. In fact, if you were consistently beaten on a cane back chair by a childhood abuser, you probably feel a modicum of that pain every time you see a cane back chair.

What the neural pathway is going on here?

Can we ever get out of the loop of the past, or is everything from the present based on the shapes and forms that we have once witnessed and learned? 

The question of living in the NOW without the past is a difficult question to answer and an even harder one to live. I have spent the past few years trying with much appropriate frustration casting down the negative thoughts from the past, denying them, and reinforcing my current New Thought belief. I do this only to find that some new ideation from the past comes up—one that’s even harsher and harder to digest. So, once again I spit out that old thought like a rotten grape I mistakenly popped into my mouth. “What the hell was that? Why did that rotten thought come up?”

It seems as though I’m asking myself this question more and more often? Is battling your own subconscious mind a good thing?

You better believe it!

If you want to make change in your mind, you must constantly assess the myriad of thoughts that float through the mind. Perhaps, you don’t have to consider the thoughts that sweep through your mind with out consideration, but the ones You Chose to Settle on! are meant to be dissected, swallowed, or spit out.

If someone knocks at your door, you don’t automatically open it to every person there. Your thoughts are the same. They are a sea of possible thoughts in the universe and because there is only One Mind, we are quite probably basking in the consciousness of society, family, and whatever is on the television at the moment.

The thoughts that you should consider and deliberate are the ones that sound like the following:

  • you’ll never be good enough. Someone is so much better than I am;
  • I’ll always be poor. I don’t deserve any more than I have;
  • Just getting by is a blessing. I should be happy with what I have and not wish for more;
  • I’m ugly and will never attract someone into my intimate life; and
  • having faith in my future and in positive thoughts is just crap; it never works!

I’m here to tell you—to bear witness to the fact—that
positive thinking works!

It not only works, but it changes lives. When you get stronger, wrestle and win against your personal demons, and prosper in your daily life, the entire world gets one step closer to the Light. If we are all part of the energy of the One Mind in Spirit, then we had better believe that every moment we spend learning our daily lessons is going to bring the entire universe one step closer to freedom:

  • freedom from messy government,
  • world war,
  • ignorance,
  • family drama, and
  • simple foolish bickering for the sake of boredom.
  1. Today, take the time to look at your thoughts. Assess them as if you are standing on a bridge watching them float beneath you, as if they are goldfish. Watch which thoughts  float to the top and which ones you feed with your brain.
  2. Decide why your life must hold on to that thought in that moment.
  3. And when you discover you no longer need that mess from the past, say to it: “I release and let go of all thoughts that no longer serve my life! I am open and willing for Peace!”

Namaste

What Is a Totem? Can They Be Signs About the Future?

By definition, a Totem is “a natural object or animal that is believed by a particular society to have spiritual significance and that is adopted by it as an emblem.”

How Do You Know if a Totem Is for You?

When I recognize something as a totem is when it sticks out from the rest of the world. For instance, I haven’t seen a centipede for about 5 years and have never seen one in Florida. Yesterday, one crawled right on top of my foot when I was in the bathroom. This, in my estimation, is a totem. I looked up the meaning, which was very significant for me in that moment.

How Do I Find Out the Meaning of a Totem?

If you have access to the Internet, simply search for Spiritual Animal Totem (name of what you saw) in Google or Yahoo Search. Many options will come up. Read all of them, or just the one that seems specifically appropriate for you.

Spirit Guides

I painted this for my mother-in-law. She loves angels and this was to show her our love!

If you ask for help from angels or spirits, you will inevitably hear from them, as they are waiting anxiously for your to tell them what you need and how they can help you build a healthier spiritual life. They are not slaves to humans, but helpers. They will indeed guide you. Just as, if you want Feng Shui to change your life by sticking a picture of a male in your relationship corner, you will eventually bring to your life that relationship.

The Power of the Human Brain When Connected with the One Mind

If we could get back to the power of a child’s mind, we would experience unlimited ability to manifest our Good.

The mind always brings into existence whatever it focuses on. If you think about positive ideas, you’ll probably have a healthy heart, with your blood pressure in a great range. If you think about hate and anger all of the time, you’ll bring about negative people and things in your life, including disease—usually to the heart and vital organs.

This is the entire idea of metaphysics in a nutshell. We are creators who learn (or don’t learn) to manifest on this Earth. If we learn to be like the Christ Spirit within, then we will do as the Christ did—create a better world for ourselves and others with compassion, healing and love.

If we keep ambivalence and negativity in our hearts, we’ll spread bad news and negativity to everyone we meet.

I had a dear friend tell me that he just recently realized how much negativity he had brought into his own life when he was younger. Now, as he looks back to his teens, the only time his life completely began to be positive was when he began to believe that the world could be better for him. If he had continued to believe in his old way of thinking negatively, he would now be on the same spiritual step as he was in his late teens.

We don’t grow until we recognize our own power in body and as spirit beings. When we recognize that we can create a better world by avoiding negativity, negative people, and especially negative thoughts.

I advise that you find an affirmation (a sentence or a couple of sentences that really resonate with your soul). When you find that affirmation, repeat it every time you seem to spiral into a negative place. For a long time I used the one below:

I painted this while waiting for Hurricane Irma to touch down on Florida.

“I RELEASE AND LET GO OF ALL THINGS THAT NO LONGER SERVE MY MIND, MY LIFE, AND MY RELATIONSHIPS. I AM OPEN AND WILLING FOR PEACE!”
