POSITIVE ENERGY BOMB!

Standard

My kids and I like to start our homeschool day off by “energy bombing” each other.  We build up balls of energy in our hands, like snowballs of light, and crack ourselves up coming up with various ways of assailing one another.

This week has been so negatively charged.  The acceleration of signs of the times and evil in the world just kicked into high gear, and we’re not even in it yet.  Like, the race hasn’t even started, this is just the warm up!  I’m feeling like I really need to slough off this bad energy and let my light shine, so I’ve been seeking out all the positivity I can.  This post is my energy bomb on the internet… PLEASE feel free to drop your own bombs wherever you can!  We need to rise up the good in the world, it is ALWAYS far more powerful than the bad!

A few months ago I attended a Christ Centered Energy Healing Conference where Kirk Duncan was the keynote speaker.  He talked about how fear comes from blanks in our mind.  We cannot actually have a blank spot, so if there is an unknown and we don’t fill that space with a positive story then a fearful story will impose.  He was taking about the calamities before us during the Tribulation and how completely scary those can be, IF we do not put a positive story in our minds.  If we allow the unknown or the negative images to dominate, we will feel fear, which is not of God.  BUT, if we keep our minds focused on the REASON for it all- Chris’s return- and create a detailed story of that moment in our minds, we will not fear.  We will be in a much better place!  He told of the story he’s created in his mind of when he meets the Savior again, which was absolutely adorable and involved a little wrestle and tickle fight with Jesus Christ, his big brother, and then he said with conviction, “He IS coming!”  He had everyone repeat it multiples times, he inspired us all to get EXCITED about it, we ought to be!  There has NEVER been ANYTHING more exciting in the history of the world, nor will there ever be- HE IS COMING!!!  I strongly encourage you to imagine, as vividly as possible, what that meeting will be like for YOU.  Today as I was driving I was listening to the hymn Now Let Us Rejoice.  One line says, “In faith we’ll rely on the arm of Jehovah.” That line put the image into my mind of Christ’s arm.  I thought about how I knew those arms before this life.  I’m sure they encircled me countless times.  I imagined what his arms will feel like wrapped around me in a sure embrace- that’s what I’m talking about!  Lets fill our minds with more of that!

And now here are some high vibe videos and images to lift you up!

Who You Are, Why You Matter

Standard
   Its common discussion in missionary efforts to cover the questions most human beings have in common- Where did we come from?  Why are we here?  What will happen when we die?  It seems in general members of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints feel confident they know the answers to these questions.  If you ask us why we are here the standard answer is, “To gain a body, to be tried, tested, and to return to our Father in heaven.”  That is not incorrect, its a great answer.  But in our day to day lives, do we really get WHY we are here?
   Most of  us tend to be people who get so caught up in the little things we forget about God.  Most of us don’t forget Him completely, but He is not our focal point most of the day.  Even those of us who are obedient, who make it habit to read scriptures and pray and such, often don’t really grasp and realistic perception of who we are and what this life is all about.   We may know it in our heads, but do we feel it in our hearts?  Are we compelled as though by a fire to seek after and fulfill the missions we covenanted to before we came to this earth?
   God has a plan for your life, a marvelous plan! A plan that YOU, with our divinely gifted agency, sat across from Him and thoughtfully mapped out.  Most of us can’t remember that at the moment, but imagine the excitement!  I happen to love to plan and achieve the results I set out to, and I can visualize this moment in time quite vividly.  I can clearly see evidence in my life that, right in alignment with my nature, I made the choice to take on one heavy load.  I am always overflowing with confidence that I can do just about everything there is to do… then I get in the trenches and doubt myself. Overwhelm nearly devours me.  I bet most of us do that.  The great news is, our Father knows us.  And He never leaves us alone.  I testify to you that I KNOW that we are constantly surrounded by loved ones eager to assist and comfort us, if only we will ask, because of course they will not cross the boundary of our agency.
   We are here to fulfill personal missions, and those missions have our spiritual (Heavenly) family at their core.  We are here to get ourselves and our brothers and sisters back to our parents.  In the process we progress by learning.  Period.  That is the point of all of this.  If we are not daily seeking to know and follow our own specific mission, we are asleep.  If we are not daily seeking our own salvation through utilizing the atonement, we are asleep.  If we are not daily seeking to comfort and uplift, protect and provide for our brothers and sisters, we are asleep.  And in this world of wolves if we are asleep, we are dead, both physically and spiritually.  It has been said, “Get your fire back. Its not over until God says its over.  Start believing again. Start dreaming again. Start pursuing what God put in your heart.”
   But how can we know our missions?  By following our interests.  By “pursuing what God put in your heart.”  If there is anything pure and good that you are passionate about, it likely has to do with your mission.  Now is the time to make diligent and daily effort to identify and refine your gifts.  You came here with many gifts and you will need them for your mission.  I honestly think the saddest thing I can imagine is passing through the veil at the end of my life and being told by the Savior that I failed to complete my part of the grand plan, and to know that I didn’t complete it because I was too busy sleeping my way through life.  Wasting time like I can get it back.  It happens to too many people.  Time is most precious.  Its spends itself speedily and can never be earned back.  We do not get infinite chances to do things right.  My husband came home feeling very pained today.  He had attended a funeral for a man in our church ward.  He had never met this man, who only occasionally attended, but he saw him in the hallway of church last Sunday.  My husband got the impression that he should go say hello and introduce himself, but he was busy chasing our very energetic toddler around and he hesitated, then the man was out of sight.  This man later killed himself.  He left behind a wife and a little one.  My husband returned home briefly after the funeral to sit with our children and explain to them why it is so important to quickly obey the promptings of the Holy Spirit.  He shared with them that he never again wants to hesitate in obeying.  My heart broke for him.  Who knows what would have happened had he spoke with that man that day.  It may not have changed the outcome, but knowing my husband as I do it no doubt would have left a positive impression.  At the very least, he would have no regret.  My guess is, these two men knew each other before this life and that that connection being made would have been very meaningful.  But we cannot know.  I am so grateful for my husband and the example he is to so many people.  I am grateful that he took the time to come home and share this heartfelt message with our children.  I am grateful that he humbly accepted this lesson and I don’t doubt that he will never hesitate again.  Some things you can’t get back.  This may have been part of his mission.
   Please do all that you can each day for the great plan that was laid out before the foundation of the world.  We are all depending on you.  You are important.  Every moment matters, we are only given so many.  If each of us comes here with a job to do and you decide you don’t feel like doing yours, then what?  I don’t want to have to answer to that when I return, and we know that we all will return.
Here are some other things you can do daily to come to the ever increasing knowledge of what God expects of you:
-Pray always.  Pray to know your mission.  Pray to know what you can do TODAY.  Pray for protection.  Pray for discernment.  Pray with gratitude and meekness.  Never stop praying.
-Study the scriptures, prayerfully and deeply.  Write down impressions as they come.
-Seek Priesthood Blessings frequently.  Write down those impressions as well.
-Read your Patriarchal Blessing frequently, study it just as you do the scriptures.  These are YOUR personal scriptures.  If you have not received your blessing, DO SO.  Do not procrastinate.
-Live worthy and always hold a current temple recommend.  Make consistent effort to attend the temple as often as possible.  Your ancestors on the other side will bless you are you have blessed them.  You will also have the added benefit of the unfiltered personal revelation that it inherent in the temple. AC
-Make an effort to get to know Christ more and more all the time.  He is not an abstract idea, he is a real, warm, compassionate, humorous, intelligent, humble man.  He is literally your elder brother.  There is never any reason to not come to Him for anything you might be in need of.  He is always there waiting.  He rejoices when you come to Him.  Christ is REAL.  He is as real as you are.
-Make an effort to get to know yourself.  You may know your worldly self (your habits, favorite things, etc.), but how well do you know your spiritual self?  How closely do you see yourself to the way your Heavenly Father does?  Do you see your divine potential?  Are you aware of your gifts and their purposes?  Do you understand your primary expression of energy?  Do you know your aura color and what it means?  Here is the true test, do you love yourself?  If you do not love yourself completely and without condition and treat yourself as you would treat someone you love dearly, then you are not seeing yourself as God sees you.  When we see ourselves for who we in truth are, we naturally love ourselves.
-Journal.  It may seem tedious and insignificant but put in a little faith and try it for a while.  You will find that the law of attraction is at work here.  The more you write down of what matters, the more will be given to you.  Also, you have a responsibility to record your life for your posterity and for the records in heaven.

A Note on Sharing

Standard

I plan to write a more indepth post on this soon but I’m feel prompted to take the bit of time I have at the moment and give you this little morsel of food for thought.

We need to practice sharing.

That isn’t meant to be patronizing.  What I mean is, in the near future our survival will depend on sharing, not on being the receivers, but on being the GIVERS.  When we give what we have, it becomes consecrated, and it multiplies.  Any of us who have experimented with the Law of Abundance/Attraction see this first hand frequently.  The ONLY way to ensure we have what we need is to GIVE what we have.  There is no way around that.  If you hoard what you have you will never have enough.  If you lovingly and with an open heart and a little faith share what you have, no matter how little you have, you will always have enough.  Simple as that.  Think about some stories you know from the scriptures and you will see this principal laid out for you.  I urge you to read those stories, ponder them, and pray for personal enlightenment.

The Sifiting

Standard

It came up recently in a Facebook group discussion, someone asked when we think we might begin to see the sifting of the wheat from the tares described in the scriptures in the last days.  The sifting has been so obviously happening over the past year or so that I hardly knew how to answer, so I just said that I’ve been seeing it happening all over the church.  Several people asked me for more specifics.  Where do I even begin…

First of all, most of us are led away so subtly by the adversary there’s no way to tell how or when it happens exactly. I have frequently seen hearts turn cold and people go their way.

I’ve seen many people challenged since the church posted on lds.org about the history of polygamy in the church.  They have felt its either new information, or information that has been hidden, because it wasn’t talked about in their families growing up.  That is truly sad for them.  I assure you, none of it has been hidden.  I have researched the subject extensively and the truth of it is almost as easy to come by as the untruths.  If the subject makes you uncomfortable, search, ponder, and pray.  That’s what I did.  All is well.

We have seen several amazing women leave the church (and their families with them) over the Ordain Women ordeals.

Denver Snuffer has lead many away by appealing to those who want the blessings of the gospel without any of the sacrifice.

As persecution has risen (and will continue to rise) many have been stifled by their own inability to answer tough questions and defend their own faith.

Pornography addiction has drowned many souls and torn apart many families, hardening hearts all over the place.

Many have become very comfortable in the modern church.  It has become a place to visit with friends, to talk about the worldly things of life, to show off their fancy hair and clothes and jewelry, its become a group of people to plan home sales parties with and a place to find popularity with the in-crowd (yes, sadly there are many wards with cliques).  Once church ceases to be a comfortable place with nice buildings and parties with food and abundance and once we’re living in the dirt and we’re all equal and lowly, these people are going to have a very difficult time.  Probably the difficulties will start once our prophet asks something of us which requires a good amount of faith.

These examples are enough because I am not speaking to or about the TARES.

I am all about the wheat!

The greatest thing about the whole plan is there is still time to CHOOSE which you would like to be!

No matter who you are, what your past is, what mistakes you made today, how far you are from being the person you’d like to be, how unprepared you are to meet Christ, you can be wheat if you choose to be.

Here is the greatest part. As much as I’ve seen people weaken and fall away, I’ve seen even MORE new sheep come into the flock, and lost sheep return!  Is no one else seeing inactives come back to church in droves?  I am seeing it in a huge way!  Not only that, but the strong members are getting stronger!  We are all growing spiritually at a rapid rate.  Some speculate it will take many years after the tribulation for Christ to return because it will take a very long time for us to become ready for him.  I respectfully disagree.  The growth going on is so rapid that especially once we’re thrown into tribulation (which will be the most refining experience we could have) we will catapult spiritually right to Christ’s feet.  We are THAT awesome!

A woman the other day told me that she sat by her grandfather’s side as he passed away and the last thing he said was, “I am not a perfect man, but I am good enough.”

That is true for any of us from the moment we choose to be “good enough.”  I promise you, Christ has already made up the part that you cannot. All we can ever be is good enough, it is in and through Him that we become perfect.

We’re playing the final inning of the game and we already know who wins.  You have been given the opportunity to join the winning team, and receive joy and glory forever, or the losing team.  What’ll it be?

That We Might Have Joy!

Standard

Today I am resurrecting a post from my personal blog from several years ago.  It goes so perfectly with the intention of this blog and my resolve to uplift and inspire. See it through to the end!

August 9, 2012

I don’t often speak from the depths of my soul.  I think most of the world will not understand.  But maybe I’m not giving the world enough credit.  We are each, after all, the same.  And within each one of us is the gift to recognize truth, and good, and things that are of God, our creator.

So here is the secret of my soul.  Here is the unsheltered reality by which I live.  It is a painful thing to behold the world.  The depth of unnecessary misery is torture to witness.  I see a world of pain, where joy is meant to be.  I see us creating our own disharmony.  I see us intentionally manufacturing and attaching ourselves to dangerous distractions.  I see us allowing the forces of evil to penetrate our hearts.  I see us poisoning ourselves and our children.  I see an, ironically, barbaric civilization.  One that is so far distanced from its inhabitant’s pristine origins, it now sees them as barbaric, and shuns them.  If a person dares to attempt to live as the Creator intended, he is weird, crazy, a “hippy.”  A peaceful person who views the earth with wonder and gratitude, who treats others with love even when that love is harshly rejected, who nourishes himself from the earth and does not inflict violence on any living thing is so foreign to us we might actually fear him.  We wouldn’t know how to relate to such an individual.  But we are perfectly comfortable in our social circles, going on about which brand of crackers our children prefer, how to best clean our ovens, which fictional novel we are currently reading, what happened on last night’s episode of Bones… but none of this matters!  Stop feeding your kids death!  Stop poisoning your family with ovens and all that comes out of them!  Stop filling the space of your mind with these distracting and often scandalous inventions of unrealistic existence!  And, please, stop staring at flashing lights on a screen for hours a day, allowing your life to slip by while you live vicariously though someone else’s life, which may or may not even exist!  Why allow your life to be wasted away?  Because it’s all you’ve ever known?  Because you’re not aware of what is real?  Because it’s one of the few comforts you’re aware of?  Because the way you live your life is so unnatural and as a result the stress so high you feel the need to zone out?

Stepping off the soap box now.  Please realize my irritation is with myself.  I am as guilty as anyone, and yet my consciousness is evolving.  And as it evolves I find myself questioning the activities I choose to include in my daily life.  I’m analyzing why I make the choices I do, what the payoff is, as well as the cost, and most importantly I’m asking myself if these things are serving greater good.  Do I need them?  Can I give them up?  What might I replace them with?

The unfortunate truth is that we are natural beings living in a way that is completely unnatural to our species.  We tend to prefer not to see ourselves in such a way, as “animals” so to speak, as part of nature.  We surround ourselves with destruction.  Do you get what I’m saying?  We surround ourselves with DESTRUCTION.  Take a moment right now to look at what surrounds you.  How many things can you count that were created by the robbing of life?  How many things were created in a factory?  How many things were once living that are now dead?  How many of these things will decay with time? How many are capable of their own reproduction?  Are you surrounded by anything that is living in its pristine form?  Human beings are meant to be part of the natural world.  It is this world that was created for us.  All things within it are intricately linked.  All things work in harmony.  Every needful thing is provided for us there.  When we live true to our nature, we need not ask God for anything.  We need only rejoice and praise Him with gratitude for all that he has given us from the beginning.  Not because we ought to, not because He says, but because we would be so overflowing with the pure love available to us, that we would not be able to contain it!

What can we do, in our modern society, to tap into this joy?  Here are a few ideas for you to condsider.  Walk barefoot outdoors daily.  Grow a garden.  Eat food in the form in which it is offered from the earth.  Cleanse the toxins of the modern world from your body via colon hydrotherapy and eating as mentioned previously.  Make a habit of viewing your life with gratitude rather than despair.  Allow enough quiet into your life that you can hear the whisperings of truth all around you.  Choose to love others just as they currently are.  MOVE your body.  They are designed to be moving most of the day!  Detach yourself from electronics as much as possible.  Connect to the people, plants, and animals around you.  Don’t allow fear to be a part of your experience.  Where there is love and faith there is no fear.  Get to know yourself.  Find our callings in life.  What are you most passionate about?  What can you do to assist others?  Go to bed with the sun and rise with it.  Release the past, it is no longer happening.  It only exists in our lives if we choose to hold on to it by focusing on it.  Look for the growth opportunities in your suffering.  Allow what’s in your heart to have a voice.  Do not fear vulnerability.  Do not concern yourself with that others think of you, they see through their own set of filters, they cannot know your true heart.  But your Father knows it and loves it.  Women, you are DIVINE!  You are daughters of GOD!  YOU are His greatest creation, the absolute pinnacle of perfection!  You are equipped with gifts that enable you to take the world from its current state of destruction, back to its pristine origins.  Bond yourselves together, there is power in numbers!  Do not allow the forces of darkness to come between you and your sisters.  Turn away from pettiness, judgment, superiority, control.  Look at the people around you as people, not as objects.  Every person you interact with is just like yourself, in fact they are a part of you.  Treat them as such.  Do not destroy God’s creations.  Do not kill his animals.  They have been entrusted to you and are here to serve you.

My only hope as I write this is that someone will come away pondering.  Some spark will ignite in the depths of a soul which, as he focuses on it, will grow into a force for good in his life.  Each life on this earth is an essential part of the big picture, the Master’s Plan, and if I have said anything that might bring more power to the forces of light, I have done well in the sight of my Creator.  And ultimately, that is what matters.

Focus on Raising the Love

Standard

I realize that most of what I say may come across to many as negative.  I’ve heard the words “doom and gloom”  a time or two.  Its hard for me to wrap my mind around because to me the message I’m sharing here is so EXCITING!  Never the less, I sincerely apologize if anything has come across negatively.  The purpose of this blog is not only to inform but to raise the energy of the earth.  The purpose of this blog is love and positivity.  I’ve decided to quiet my warning voice for the next week and raise the energy here by doing what I do best in real life, spread that high vibe happiness!

I am crazy in love with this quote I just came across.  It is a bit of a warning, but pay close attention:

“The kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of God on the earth will be combined together at Christ’s coming – and that time is not far distant. How I wish we could get the vision of this work, the genius of it, and realize the nearness of that great event. I am sure it would have a sobering effect upon us if we realized what is before us.” Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley, October 1992

How many of us truly “get” it?  We are LIVING God’s plan!  This is HUGE!  We are part of a great work.  We are privileged to be here on this earth during the most amazing time the world has, and will, ever see.  Christ IS coming.  And soon.  The veil IS thinning, we ARE becoming ONE (hence the name of the blog, in case you missed that haha).  Every day I wonder how I ever qualified to be chosen to be on the earth at this time.  I have no idea, all I know is that I am so very grateful.  Just completely consumed with gratitude.  And I know that whatever I did, YOU did it too, or something equally wonderful at least!  How wonderful it is to be a Child of God!   He is SO GOOD!! His love is the most divine thing in existence!

As you go about your day today I pray you will look around you and recognize your Father’s love in every good thing.  I pray you will experience His love for you individually.  I pray you will come to understand how unimaginably HUGE this time in the world is, and I pray that you will find joy in the opportunity to witness and be an integral part of it!
