Pigeons and Black Birds

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

When I was a kid, I was very afraid of pigeons and black birds. These particular birds in Pennsylvania were seemingly mean to other smaller birds. They would steal food from anything that was smaller than they were. What I saw—even at that young age—was a narcissist in motion and reacted to the behavior accordingly. Even today, when people take what they think they deserve without considering others, my spiritual antenna rises. I begin to watch for other behaviors that might harm me.

What is so harmful about taking what you think you deserve, especially if taking your just due doesn’t steal from others? I have always been the one who looked at life as if I was the bottom feeder or the last on the food chain. Even when I deserved a raise, and I could give myself one, I would think I was undeserving. What makes a person feel so demoralized and less-than that he would actually keep himself from success?

I have spent many years helping people overcome the fear of success. Usually, in the foreground I find a very accomplished man or woman with lots of great accolades. However, the person had had one harmful and venomous caregiver or teacher as a child who literally stole away the person’s power. The instant that demon poured negativity on the child was the moment he or she gave away much of what would make that person a success in life. I feel this kind of pain and have compassion for it.

Even though to some I seem as if I have much going for myself, life has been a constant struggle to overcome old thoughts about myself. In my case, however, I did not have just one demons. There were many, but not striking at my success. What I lacked though was someone to really nurture my talents. As a result, the neural pathways that affected my ability to see myself as successful was quite dried up. I overworked, over compensated, and definitely spouted my own praise far more than I ever had to.

When I look back, I never knew how talented I was or had an attitude that I could be anything I wanted, even though I had the world at my feet. Instead, I sunk into a place that seemed easy to achieve and had much less criticism by the people around me. I became a minister. Who wants to be mean or critical of a minister? At least, that’s what I remember believing, as I decided to give up being an artist for a spiritual path.

I don’t deny that this diversion from my true path was a good one. I learned so much about life, spirituality, meditation, yoga, and helping others on my path; however, I never really walked the hardest path of all, the one that would put me on the chopping block of criticism 24/7, the one that would teach me that I am simply what God created combined with any other talents I have nurtured.

Even today as a author, singer, and actor, I have to endure many thoughts about not being good enough. But now, I understand that all I have to be is me. I can hone my skills, but the rest is up to the producers in life to pick exactly the person whom he or she needs for the project or the “public to vote,” as in most reality shows.

Most of the time, me getting or not getting a part has nothing to do with the quality of my work. I know this because I have successfully gained many roles and also have not gotten as many roles. If I was bad at what I did, I would get no roles and just Mom would think I was a star. This, at least, is my litmus test now and keeps me going.

In the meantime, I continue to give to the world from the coffer of my gut belief and authentic self. I never have qualms with what I give. I simply create and give. This is our nature as spirit in human flesh. This I realize daily.

I know this is meant of that special someone who needs a boost today.

Bless you and know that you are a unique and wonderful person!

Instagram, Insta-fame, Overnight YouTube Success!

While watching the news or a television show the terms #instant_success or #overnight_YouTube_Success seem to be popping up everywhere. If you have been in the arena of SEO’s (search engine optimization), social media, and website success, you know nothing is for free. Success rarely happens overnight.

I have many people in my life who have been working way too hard to not have made it to success yet. The timing of success is not always up to you. In fact, I don’t believe we have much more to do in our lives except:

 

  1. to be present,
  2. shine our lights, and 
  3. be prepared.

 

In other words, we must do our work and not just sit around waiting for luck.

For instance, whether my books are selling or not, I write my blog and or write something everyday. I write daily to let myself and the universe know that I express as a Writer. As far as my other projects, these too are all a part of the bigger picture for me as I sow seeds for the future.

As many you have seen, I have started a new YouTube cooking channel and a website (launch is July 2017) called Angel Feast. In three weeks, I have conceived, written, and produced fourteen cooking shows. I have marketed them every day. I have used social media and have worked every last contact to help push the process forward.

So, you may ask, how many active people do you have signed up for your new YouTube Channel? The answer is 40. When you think of the amount of time and work I have given to this project in conception and actual production, the expectation is that I would be an overnight success. The truth, however, is that getting to the top of web searches and allowing time for people to find your product takes great effort, considerable amount of time, and often professional help. Many times, people get tired of waiting and hire the entire process out to a company who works at just marketing and promotions.

For me, I want things to happen organically. I remember when there were only 10 people reading my blog every day. I now have had about 10 million people read FindingAuthenticYou.com blog in the past 7 years. I write almost every day. I am consistent, and I share my content on social media in as many places as will have me. This is the way to success.

So, if you’re doubting yourself or your new business right now, Chin Up! There is no need to pout. The Universe is well aware of your work. Your negative thoughts will only make it harder to achieve your goals. You must consistently treat or pray positive, affirming prayers for your good and believe that you have already succeeded simply by giving 100% every day.

I have written many blogs about this process. My entire last book, “Your New Story, Your New Life” is completely dedicated to this subject. If you would like to order it: Click Here!

Deciding on and living by your core values is a tenuous challenge. My many years of spiritual coaching and life coaching can help you with this. I have helped many people in this situation see light and overcome the darkness of the past. For more information and individual pricing or as a guest speaker, give me a call: 954-253-6493.

New Thought, New Outcome

Nothing in your life ever appears without first being a thought in Mind. Let me introduce this concept of with a #New_Thought_a_New_Outcome.

The Mind is not your brain. The brain is a functioning organ in the human body. The Mind has no boundaries. The brain helps each individual take the ideas of Mind and make those ideas personal. However, the Mind is powerful beyond knowledge. If you can capture the power of your own Mind, you can change your life and everything around you.

I liken this idea, metaphorically, to a Director deciding to produce a play. He or she finds a subject matter of great importance. Knows the story well enough to imagine the characters, the place from which it is staged, and is able to see the beginning, middle, and end with precision. When it is time to Produce the Show, s/he can easily cast the characters, create the background for the scenes, and direct the energy of the play as he or she conceives it. This play is your idea. The Director is Mind!

Continued from Above:

Rumi says:

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

In other words, in the theory of this Powerful Mind, you are the Director. When something comes up against your ideas or your thoughts about your intended outcome, you do have the power to get rid of those barriers.

For instance, you have conceived of an idea for a business. However, you have had a couple of failed ideas in the past that make you fearful of your own power to succeed. Imagine, however, that you didn’t fail, you simply will use these past attempts at learning the process of being a better businessman.

However, as you have passed through the times of not being able to shape and form and produce something from scratch, you have negative seed thoughts in your human brain that suggest that you may not be SUCCESSFUL again! These are kinds of old fears that you should fight against and win!

In contrast to fears, you may find a stumbling block that is not fear. For instance, you are looking for a business space. Just as you are about to close on the deal, the Lessee backs out. I might think of this kind of instance as Spirit intervening and helping you find a better place.

 

Do you see the difference in the human brain memorizing fearful patterns, the Universal Mind actually helping you find the best place to conduct business? My litmus test for this kind of challenge is: if fear is at the root of the problem, usually your human brain is involved. If your course is altered from something outside of fear, this tends to be the Universal Mind acting on your behalf.

Because there is only One Mind in the Universe, you are part of this individual power. When you get quiet and learn to allow your own brain to cease from deducting and allow your mind to create or envision, then you begin to learn to use this incredible power of the One Mind.

The Buddha says:

What we think, we become.

 

There is no coincidence here that the Master Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is Within.” If you’re an Old Testament kind of person, Proverb 23:7 says the same exact thing: “  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: . . .”

As an aside, the quote from proverb says “a man thinks in his heart.” Since when can a human think from her heart? The heart pumps the blood, but the brain thinks, right? However, spiritually, King Solomon understood that a Powerful God Mind exists in the heart of man, not in the brain of man. When you think with this Heart in your being that is meant for loving, you produce loving results in your life: peace, prosperity, joy.

When you think negative and prideful thoughts with your heart, you will produce a world full of immature thinking that benefits no one but yourself, albeit pride, prejudice, and greed. This is the state of Government now, starting from the top—down to the bottom.

Democracy is about giving power to the whole, not the 1% at the top of the wealthy status. I don’t mean to make this blog about politics, but we are in the middle of the biggest spiritual battle of our lives. Those of us seeking to live our personal lives from one Powerful, Loving Mind are also the same dear ones chosen by God to fight a spiritual war.

We stay vigilant of what happens around us and continue to fight the radical Right. More importantly, though, we must continue to look within to this One Mind for advice and guidance to deflect and counteract the negative spiritual forces of Human Egos.

The only power than can eventually win and overtake the world is Love!

If more of us believe we can win this spiritual war from changing our thoughts, more of us will begin to see the same image as only the One Mind Can: Peace of Earth!
