I just saw a commercial about this super-mom who ends her busy day by looking for monsters under her child’s bed. It got me thinking. As adults, we know there are no monsters under there. So, what are we teaching our children when we look anyways; that monsters are real? Why not tell it like it is. The monsters are only their mind.

Perhaps we look under the bed because, like children, we have spent our life believing in monsters too. They may not be under the bed, but they are out there somewhere, waiting to disrupt our lives. And, just like children, we need to be gently reminded of the truth. God doesn’t check under our bed. He doesn’t even know about monsters. God is pure love and nothing else. As His children, so are we. So, where could the monsters be? Only in our mind.

High Beams #38

As I drove home on a dark road last night, I had to keep clicking on my high beams to see more clearly. It occurred to me that I might also be able to see difficult people and situations more clearly if I would take the time to switch on my spiritual high beams. Instead of judging what I see with my physical eyes, what if I shine my inner light (high beams) on them and see things from a higher perspective? What if I see things through the eyes of love? Perhaps then I could see past the darkness to what is hidden beneath the surface. Love is always there, waiting for me to shine a light on it.

Uncommon Joy #37

I have often said that what we focus on expands. For the last twenty months I have been focused on writing this blog and my memoir about my “journey to uncommon joy.” Sometimes, when I would have a difficult day, I would question whether I was qualified to write about joy. I would remind myself that I was only writing about my journey to joy. I would reassure myself that I would be experiencing uncommon joy by the time I finished my book. Yesterday morning, I worked on the last chapter. Later, I called a friend. While we were talking, I suddenly had the urge to laugh. Neither of us were being funny, but I was giggling uncontrollably. I felt so joyful that I simply had to laugh . . . and laugh . . . and laugh.

Am I joyful all the time? Heck, no.
Am I joyful more often now? Certainly.
Is it an uncommon joy? YES!

Are you focused on joy today?

Let your spirit soar!

Forgot #36

Forgot   #36

My boyfriend just called. “Honey, where’s your blog this week?”

Shocked silence. “I forgot!” I say. In twenty months I have never forgotten.

“You must have had a busy week.” he says. My mind rewinds. What was I doing all week?

My Book! I worked on it all week. I spent six hours on it yesterday. I was so totally absorbed that I even forgot to eat. I forgot everything else. (I love writing my blog too. Sometimes it totally absorbs me, but this week it was my book.)

What can I say?

Here’s what: If you haven’t already, find something in your life that you love so much that it takes you out of time, out of your body, out of your small mind (worries and fears), and puts you in touch with your higher self; with that part of you that wants to express in some glorious way. You may occasionally miss a deadline, but you’ll feel more alive.

Heaven Sent #35/2012

I want to tell you about my exciting opportunity. I have been writing a book for the past few years. It is a spiritual memoir titled, SPIRIT RISING, A Commoner’s Journey to Uncommon Joy. Six months ago I began researching publishing companies. I recently learned that the top company on my list is hosting a writing contest. First place is a publishing contract with them and a $5,000 advance. My book fits the contest requirements precisely and the timing is perfect. My book is so near completion that I know I can meet the September 27th submission deadline.

Because I have been strongly guided to write this book as part of my life’s work, I feel that this contest is heaven sent. I rejoice at how easily everything comes together when I listen to and follow spirit’s guidance. I rejoice that I have you, dear readers, to share my journey with. And, win or lose, I rejoice that this opportunity led me to finish writing a book that has helped me to grow in many wonderful ways.

Let your spirit soar!

PS I will know on October 19th if I made it to round two. I will keep you posted. J
