This weekend I had the honor and privilege of spending time with a company of women who were simply amazing. Kira Cheree’, thank you for saying yes to an unpopular topic. Physical healing is perceived as a good thing. Spiritual and Emotional healing, on the other hand, can come with stigma. It is what I call a hush hush, shh keep that to yourself kind of topic. How wild is that? Reality check… If you do not properly deal with your emotional and spiritual health you will eventually encounter physical health issues as well.
Here are the scriptures I promised you yesterday.
I love you all. Take courage and continue on your journey.
Seems obvious, right? Be you. Like, who else could one be?
I am glad you asked, because I have an answer.
The reality is that YOU are the only person you can BE. Today we are bombarded with images and ideas from television, movies, videos, music, social media and the Jones just to name a few. While images and ideas are great, they can also become a great travesty. The Disaster occurs when great images and ideas overshadow the real person you were intended to be…
Why are we so impressed by others? Is it because they give us hope? Is it because they show us the way? Is it because they have some magic? All of these or none of these could be the truth. But, here is what I know for sure. Many of us are busy admiring others because somehow we have convinced ourselves that who we are, what we have, what we are made of is not enough.
Well! Well now! (Imagine me saying this in my motherly voice; you know the voice when mom has just realized that… “There are going to have to be some changes made around here!”) This could not be further from the truth. The you, you are today is good enough. Could there be a better version of you. Well, of course there could. But that my dear is up to you. You will have to decide the level of work and detail you want to put into developing yourself.
You can try as hard as you can to be someone other than yourself, but it will never happen. It can never be. So in reality you are always YOU. Trying to be something other than yourself only produces a watered down version of you. We all know that watered down is awful. Think about the last drink you had at a restaurant. Once the ice has melted and the drink no longer has its strength what do we do. We ask the server, “Can I get a fresh drink, this is watered down. So if no one wants a watered down drink. Surely, we don’t want watered down people either.
Why not be the best version of YOU that you can be today. Don’t worry about tomorrow or
yesterday, next month, next season, or even the days and months that have
passed. Just BE. Today choose to just be the best YOU, you can be.
Today choose to be present. Today choose to be aware. Today choose to be grateful, thankful. Today choose to be, YOU. Choose today to be the best YOU, you could possibly be.
Be ‘OKAY’ with where you are right now, in thismoment – no matter where you are. …I realize, this may sound strange to you, especially if where you are is far from where you want to be.
When you can accept your present state, celebrate and feel gratitude for where you are right now; the universe will respond favorably. It is a law. The acknowledgment and this emotion creates the magnetic energy to pull you closer to the life, business, health, love, peace, wealth and spirituality you desire.
It is just that simple. Be pleased today not for where you are going, or from where you have come – (these are good too and have their place and purpose). But, today make peace with where you actually are. Feel it, feel good about it. Once you do this only more good can come to you.
There is no power in waiting for something to happen at some point in the future. We have no control over the future. We can only influence what is right “NOW.” Now is where the magic happens. It is where the action takes place.
You must make peace with where you are right here and now before you can get anywhere else. Embracing your now is the magic for all that is to come. And boy, is there a lot of good coming your way!
Can you say, “I am well,” “I am doing good,” “Everything is alright,” “I am great!”
Give it a try… Repeat it a few times… Notice the lightness and relief you feel being at peace with where you are.
