Let's Talk Snakes: What's Biting Your Mind?

 


Faery Blessings:

My minister this morning was talking about snakes that were biting people and killing them....I had to stop and really think about that for a bit and then he made it clear in that he called the snakes of Moses's time was in this lifetime the snakes that "bite" our minds.....snakes are sneaky and sly and good with manipulating their words to make you believe that it is ok to stay in the lies your mind is telling you....biting your joy, biting your peace, biting your relationships, biting your job, biting your mental well being, biting all the good things in your life...yes he is speaking of the spirit of snakes to let you know that snakes can be a spirit within your minds that tells you that "I'm not good enough, why is this happening to me, Why did God not give me someone to share my life with, things are never going to change, I feel, think and believe that life is not going to get better."...You add your own that your mind tells you and that you truly believe in your mind...

 

And the thing is that last night with this Super Blood Wolf Moon that eclipsed in Leo is going to push it all out but it will not force us to leave those snakes out of our head.....so once again "think about what you are thinking about" because we are "faery" soon going to be stepping into a powerful manifestation energy that creates what is in our minds, what we think, believe and feel, whether that is positive or negative....in other words we will be creating our own realities by what we think, feel, and believe...so ask your angels to get those thoughts right...keep positive affirmations in front of you...whatever you have to do and some will say "I don't feel like doing that"...well the wee ones say to "fake it until you feel it"...

 

Happiness is not a feeling, it is a decision....you decide you are going to be happy before you are happy...decide that life is going to get better for you before it gets better...that is why we call it faith....you don't see it yet, but the deepest part of your heart and soul are at peace knowing the outcome and you just keep putting one foot in front of the other and trust that if God said he would do it, he will.....He may not be on "our time we want" but He is always on time and never late, and He arrives and delivers it in Divine Right Time....and you can fuss and complain and get mad and upset as much as you want, but it will not change God's Divine Time...

 

So ask your angels for hope and peace in the wait and in the in between times of waiting, find positive things to read, study, research and learn....or watch funny, upbeat movies....whatever it takes to distract your from your negative thinking and your need to know exactly when.....give it all up and surrender it up to God and angels....and tell your mind that you don't need it to tell you what to think, believe or feel....and for I personally get loud and call it a straight up "LIAR"....

 

So ask yourself and your mind....what snakes are biting you in your mind..tell your mind "no more" and tell the Devil "No not today, not every again" ..So with this new energy, stop blaming others for the way your life is going and "own it"....own responsibility for the thoughts that you allow to stay in your mind and continue to bite you over and over again....wee ones say to stop and think about what you are thinking about and once and for all, call your mind on the things in your life that it has convinced you are true and call it a "LIAR"....and put the past behind you and refuse to allow it any more headspace, move it out one step at a time if necessary but evict it from your mind so your future doesn't repeat your past.

 

And they say that FEAR IS A LIAR! FEAR actually means FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL!!! There is an old saying "feel the fear and do it anyway"..today I challenge you to write down all your fears, all the lies your mind tells you and then read each one out loud and tell the lie or fear that it has to leave, evict it today...you are responsible for the way your life turns out...so take your life back by first taking your mind back and don't allow yourself to be a slave to your mind....

 

And I used to say "Lord this doesn't make me comfortable"...and I hear a still, small voice that said "Who told you this would be comfortable"...it will be as easy or hard s you make it...you are all in mine and wee ones prayers....take your life back

 


Enjoy today's message from the wee ones and me and Be Blessed!

Intuitive Astrology: Super Blood Moon Eclipse January 2019

 

Faery Blessings:

And here we are...the first Full Moon of 2019 and it packs a wallop....it starts at about 10:45 EST until around 3:48AM Jan. 21st.....After reading this article I had to dig deep to go back to February 2017 to see what was going on in my life and how it is going to be healed once and for all or released once and for all..not saying that will happen for everyone as this moon is personal to us all....so with that being said, enjoy today's message from selfmotivationstories .com and Be Blessed!

 

P.S. This Moon is visible with the naked eye in the US everywhere....The total lunar eclipse will begin on Sunday, Jan. 20 at 11:41 p.m. EST and totality will last until 12:44 a.m. on Monday, Jan 21.

 


"On January 20-21st we have a Super Blood Moon Eclipse in the sign of Leo. This Eclipse is ultra potent as it’s both a Super Moon and a Blood Moon.

 

You can rest assured that this Leo Eclipse is definitely going to leave a lasting impression on all of us.

A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is closest to Earth. This means that we will see it shining big and bright in the sky. It also means the energetic effects of the Moon will be stronger than usual.

 

A Blood Moon occurs when we have a Total Lunar Eclipse. A Total Lunar Eclipse is the most potent kind we can have and signals a profound rebirth and culmination of energy.

 

On top of all of this, the fact that this Lunar Eclipse falls in Leo also adds to the significance.

 

For the last 18 months or so, we have been working with the Eclipse energies of Leo and Aquarius. This Eclipse cycle began back in February 2017, but now this January 2019 Leo Eclipse is the last in the cycle.

 

Seeing as this is the last Eclipse in the cycle, it is going to bring endings and a culmination to the lessons we have been working with since early 2017.


This is huge energy we are wrapping up, and it’s likely we will all feel a sense of resolution and completion.

 

As you can see, this Leo Eclipse is extremely potent and is going to be activating and transforming us on the deepest layers of our soul.

 

Overall, this Eclipse represents a time where we can birth ourselves, our past, our creations, our wounds, and our self-expression out into the world. This “birthing” process is one we may feel either on a creative level or on a level that allows us to release and let go.

 

This Eclipse also has some volatile, erratic energy to it, so we may feel a little scattered, drained or off balance. We may also find ourselves being pulled to release wounds of the past and to let go of things we thought we had dealt with.

 

To help you understand what flavor this Eclipse may have for you, think about what was happening in your life around February 2017. It is likely issues or themes from this time may play a part in what comes up for you.

 

It is not necessarily that the same events will repeat themselves, but you may find you are continuing your growth and development in regards to whatever was brewing around this time.

 

You may also gain closure in regards to these events, and feel proud of yourself for how far you have come. In fact, this Eclipse is like a graduation of sorts, so no matter what brews for you, be sure to honor just how far you have come and to celebrate the journey you have traveled.

 

No matter what this Eclipse brings up for you, here you stand, trying to understand more, open your heart more, and learn more. As you read these words allow them to heal you, allow them to open you, and really honor the fact that you are taking the time to understand the cosmos and how it can aid your growth.

 

Accessing angelic realms and higher states of consciousness is also going to be easier under the effects of this Eclipse, so be sure to tune into your own guidance system and listen to the voice of your intuition.


Due to the volatile energy around this Eclipse, it is going to be wise to think before speaking and to avoid getting swept up in the heat of the moment, especially when it comes to relationship matters.

 

Egos may be quick to rise under the energy of this Leo Eclipse, so do your best to stay mindful and to avoid arguments or conversations where you need to prove yourself or why you are right and the other person is wrong.

 

These types of discussions or arguments are never ones worth winning, as everyone has their own point of view, their own pains, and their own lens in which they view the world.

 

Tuning into your creativity is a great way to help negate some of this Eclipse energy, so if you find yourself feeling heated or wound up by something, make the time to do something that gets your creative juices flowing.

 

Eclipses always bring fated events into our lives, so in a sense, we can sit back and allow ourselves to be guided. We don’t have to worry about what actions to take on an Eclipse, because often the actions we need to take arise spontaneously and naturally.

 

Part of the reason Eclipses are so potent is that they put us where we need to be and unlock paths of our soul contract that we have been fated to walk down.

 

On this Blood Moon Eclipse, the energy is so strong and potent that we are going to find ourselves led in the right direction with minimal effort. Of course, the journey may not be easy, and we may feel resistance and fear, but keep trusting and know that the heavens have a plan for you."

Words Are Energy: Careful What You Think & Say

 

Faery Blessings:

Wee ones have told me that there is a new energy moving in over the Spring of this year but will begin to see a bit of it coming in earlier in March....whether your thoughts or negative or positive, they are going to begin manifesting in the physical areas of your life...that is why wee ones advised me to send out this article for my clients so they can begin to check their thinking or think about what they are thinking about and being careful about what they say as well for good or bad....I know you guys want to manifest the good but the universe/God is going to give us a dose of what our thoughts and words can do....so enjoy todays article from DailyOM and the short message from God beneath it and Be Blessed!

 

"Each word we speak has a life of its own, a vibratory signature that creates waves into the expanse of the universe.

 

When we speak or write, we use the vehicles of words to carry meaning, as well as energy, from ourselves to another person or group of people. We may be speaking to our baby, our boss, or to an audience of 500 people. We may be writing a love letter, a work-related memo, or an entry in our own diary. Whatever the case, each word we speak or write has a life of its own, a vibratory signature that creates waves in the same way that a note of music creates waves. And like musical notes, our words live in communities of other words and change in relation to the words that surround them. When we are conscious of the energy behind our words, we become capable of making beautiful music in the world. If we are unconscious of the power of words, we run the risk of creating a noisy disturbance.

 

Some of us know this instinctively, while others come to this understanding slowly. Most of us, though, speak without thinking at least some of the time, blurting out our feelings and thoughts without much regard for the words we choose to express them. When we remind ourselves that our words have an impact on the world at the level of energy, we may find within ourselves the desire to be more aware of our use of language.

 

A fun way to increase our sensitivity to the power of words is to simply make a list of our favorite words and notice the energy they contain. We can write them down and post them where we can see them, or we can speak them aloud, feeling them reverberate in our bodies and in the air around us. This is like learning to consciously play an instrument that we have been playing unconsciously for most of our lives, and the effect can be startling and delightful. As we grow more comfortable and confident playing the instrument of language, we will begin to compose beautiful messages, creating positive energy every time we write or speak.

 


Today God wants us to know that difficult people are very important, - they teach you tolerance and acceptance.

 

If all was going your way all the time, you would become a spoiled child, wouldn't everyone? Difficult people are just one of the ways God teaches us to expand beyond our egos and accept other perspectives on life."

Good morning Lavonda, here is today's prayer...


Faery Blessings:

This beautiful prayer came in my inbox today and I wanted to share it with all of you...again if it is not your cup of tea(as it is mine) then please feel free to ask me to remove you from my mailing list....I get these daily in my inbox but this one struck a cord and took me outside of myself to pray for those in need...God is my number one, the angels assist him when you ask for their assistance and my wee ones(faeries) assist the angels to help carry out what we ask....or at least that is how it is for me...so whether you call him Lord, God, Universe, Higher Power, etc, you can always know He is there to guide and when you don't know what to pray sometimes I just say "Jesus" because he knows the inner workings of my heart and what I need even when I don't know what to say or ask for....so enjoy today's prayer from Prime Time With God and Be Blessed!

 


"Dear Father God,

Today I lift up those who are lacking a home to live in.

I pray for those who find themselves displaced and alone.

Help me to live a life that is worthy of what You have called me to, to love and serve others in Your name.

Please reveal to me the needs that You have equipped me to meet.

Help me to love people as You love them.

You clothed Yourself in humanity, You knelt on the floor and washed away the grime and filth with tenderness and grace.

You proclaim freedom for the captives, sight for the blind, and adoption for the orphaned.

You seek out the marginalized and welcome the stranger.

You pursue those who are thought to be too far gone.

You make beautiful things out of the dust.

Let me die to myself so that Your Holy Spirit may live in me.

Please help me to love mercy, do justly, and walk humbly with You my God. Micah 6:8

You are more wonderful than my words can describe.

Thank You for sending Your Son Jesus to save me and to show me how to love.

Lord, I praise You for Your wonderful nature, and I stand in awe of the wonderful things You do for me. Lord, when I don’t know what to say in prayer, I simply worship in Your wonderful presence.

Lord, I call You Wonderful because of all I know about You in Scriptures, and I worship You for all the wonderful things You have done for me.

In Jesus' name I pray,

Amen."

Anything Can Be Overcome!


Faery Blessings:

We have all heard the old saying...."tie a knot in the rope and hang on"...."pull yourself up by your bootstraps"....the older generation knew what all this meant as their lives were so much harder than today's technology that affords us such a easy life....we have microwaves(some of the older generation had wood stoves to cook on)...we have central heat and air(most older generations had fans and wood stoves for heat and air)....we have machines that do it all for us, yet I still remember my dad working in the hot sun on a farm 12 to 16 hours and day(without all the techology)....so when we say we have it hard in today's society, it just might be time to stop and think back how it was 50 years ago, even 30 years ago and think about how much more we have these days versus those days...Enjoy today's message from DailyOM and Be Blessed!


"Even when it seems like you have nowhere left to turn, there is a solution waiting for you. Always.


The journey that each human being makes through earthly existence can have hardship as often as it is touched by joy. When we encounter adversity, the stress we feel can erode our optimism, eventually convincing us that the issues we face cannot be overcome. In truth, there is no situation so dire, no challenge so great, and no choice so bewildering that it cannot be overcome. Though we may believe that all avenues have been closed to us or that our most conscientious efforts will come to naught, we are never without feasible options. The best course of action may be veiled in doubt, but it is there. When we are honest with ourselves with regard to this simple fact, we can overcome anything because we will never stop looking for a solution to the challenges before us.


Self-trust coupled with a sturdy plan is the ultimate antidote to adversity's tendency to inspire disillusionment in the human mind. As difficult as the obstacle plaguing you seems, it is no match for the love of a supportive universe that has been a part of your life since the day of your birth and will be with you forevermore. Try not to be misguided by your fear as this gives rise to the notion that there are problems without solutions. If you believe in your capabilities and dedicate yourself to the creation of some form of resolution, you will be surprised to discover that paths that were once closed to you miraculously open. Even if all you can do is change your perspective to turn an impediment into an opportunity to grow, you will have found the hope that is an inherent element of all hardship.


Remember that your destiny is a product of your own creation. Even when it seems you have nowhere left to turn, there is a solution waiting for you. The only insurmountable obstacles are the ones you create in your own mind--and these can only exert power over you if you let them. Uncertainty will always be a part of your existence, but perseverance and mindfulness will never fail to see you through to the other side of hardship where joy can thrive. Try and remember that no matter what life places at your feet, there is absolutely no situation that cannot be resolved with time, love, and friendship."

Daily Self-Care: Putting Yourself First!


Faery Blessings:

I do believe that daily a reminder of sorts comes in for me concerning the word of the year God gave me which is "NO"...seems like almost everyday now I am reminded of that small yet powerful word...A few months back I joined a gym...it came with all the perks I wanted and the "no-judgment" zone in which I could work out at my own pace without feeling someone was pushing me into it...I really don't like people pushing me into things lol.....anywho, in order to be a part of the gym scene I had to learn to say "no" to people that I had been doing things daily for....so when this article from DailyOM popped up in my Inbox, it was like a confirmation that I am on the right track with my word of the year...lol....enjoy todays message and Be Blessed!


"Putting yourself first means that it may be necessary to say no to someone else, in order to say yes to yourself.


We have all heard the instructions of an airline attendant reminding us to put on our own oxygen mask before we help anyone else with theirs. This advice is often cited as a metaphor for self-care because it so accurately expresses why it is important. It seems to say, ironically, that if you can't take care of yourself for yourself, do it for others. Few situations in our daily lives mimic the wake-up call of an airplane emergency, so it's easy to keep putting self-care off--easy, that is, until we get sick, overwhelmed, or exhausted, and suddenly don't have the energy to care for the people who count on us. That's when we realize we haven't been getting the oxygen we need to sustain ourselves. We begin to understand that taking care of ourselves is neither selfish nor indulgent; it's just plain practical.


Putting yourself first means that it may be necessary to say no to someone else in order to say yes to yourself. For many of us, there is always something we feel we could be doing for someone else, and it helps to remember the oxygen metaphor. You can even encourage yourself by saying "I am caring for myself so that I am better able to care for others" or some other mantra that will encourage you. It also helps to remember that self-care doesn't have to be composed of massively time-consuming acts. In fact, the best prescription for taking care of yourself is probably small, daily rituals; for example, taking one half-hour for yourself at the beginning and end of the day to meditate, journal, or just be. You might also transform the occasional daily shower or bath into a half-hour self-pampering session.


Whatever you decide, making some small gesture where you put yourself first every day will pay off in spades for you and the ones you love. The oxygen you need is all around you; sometimes you just need to be reminded to breathe."

A Self-Esteem Exercise: 5 Things!



Faery Blessings:

Oh My...Now this is an exercise even I will do with myself and for myself...sometimes we get so wrapped up in work, doing for others, our daily lives and we sometimes forget that we are important too...God wants us to love others, He wants us to work, He wants us to do all those things, "but" He also wants us to take care of us and love ourselves as well and not in an egoic way but in a healthy and love ourselves like God loves us too....enjoy today's message from DailyOM and Be Blessed!


"Having low self-esteem is a common issue - with some introspection you can start to loosen the grip of this negative thought pattern.


Our primary relationship in life is with ourselves. No one else goes through every experience in life with us. We are our one permanent companion, yet we are often our worst critic. To remind ourselves of our magnificence, we can do this exercise: "Five Things I Like About Myself."


Begin by writing down at least five things that you like about yourself. This is not the time to be modest. If you are having trouble coming up with a total of five items, you know that this exercise can really benefit you. Be sure to include more than your physical attributes on your list, since our bodies are only part of who we are. If you are still struggling with what to include on your list, think of what you like about your favorite people, because these traits are probably qualities that you possess too. Another way to complete your list is to think of five things you don't like about yourself and find something about these traits that you can turn into a positive.


Continue this process for a week, thinking of five new things you like about yourself each day. At the end of the week, read the list aloud to yourself while standing in front of a mirror. Instead of looking for flaws to fix, allow the mirror to reflect your magnificence. You may feel silly about standing in front of a mirror and reading aloud a list of your admirable attributes, but it might just bring a smile to your face and change the way you see yourself. Remember, it is when you feel the most resistant that this exercise can benefit you the most. Because we are constantly looking at the world, instead of looking at ourselves, we don't often see what's magnificent about ourselves that others do. When we take the time to experience ourselves the way we would experience someone we love and admire, we become our best companion and supporter on life's journey."

Kind Heart, Fierce Mind, Brave Spirit

 

Faery Blessings:

In my class on Soul Care, I am required to do research outside of the class and it takes me on many journeys of searching and different beliefs and information that otherwise I would probably never found..I found the article below from theredfairyproject .com....I had to share because although short, it paced a wallop of information in two short paragraphs....Yes I too want this kind heart, fierce mind and brave spirit.....so I encourage you today to read and reread the article as I did and it empowered me to see that I can be all of these without sacrificing me....Enjoy today's message and Be Blessed!

 


"Kind heart. Fierce mind. Brave spirit. We don’t have to choose between being brave and being vulnerable or between being kind and being strong. We can embody all of these things and more while keeping an open heart and mind. If we become hard with a closed heart because life has dealt us some blows, we not only close ourselves to the bad but also to the good.

 

We must be brave and continue to believe because a gift resides in every moment. Yes, even the most difficult ones. If you look back at time in your life when everything seemed to be falling apart, you can see that it was an opportunity for rebirth, for a new chapter. Keep that heart open, that mind in the present moment and that spirit alive by doing what you love and what makes your soul vibrate with happiness. Have a wonderful day my lovelies!"

Spiritual Connection Between Two People



Faery Blessings:

There are so many ways to connect with others...by nature I am an INFP and for those who don't know what that is, it is Meyers/Briggs Personality Profile I fit....It is an "Introverted, Ntuitive, Feeling & Perceiving" type of personality....it is often called the "Mediator" which fits me to a tee...it was hard for me to connect to others outside my home or work out in a normal environment or to connect with others in a meaningful and outside my comfort zone type of way...that is why I chose to work on here to help others in the privacy of my own home...but I have learned how to not be so much of an introvert and get outside my comfort zone so I can connect with others on a more spiritual and physical level...that is why when I found this article from consciousreminder .com I wanted to share it with all of you in hopes you can figure out the connections in your life and if you want to find out what your personality profile is just type in the search box, "free meyers/brigg personality profile" and take the quiz to see your personality type.....Enjoy today's message and Be Blessed!


"There are many different types of spiritual connection between two people, so how do you know when you have a spiritual connection with them, does it mean you are on the same spiritual path or is it something subtle?


Let’s find out shall we, Here is a simple explanation when you can tell if you have a spiritual connection with them.



The first one is that you are very much attracted to them and you have no idea why.


You had random thoughts of them even when they were never part of your initial mindset
Your mood changes throughout the day, one moment you are happy and care free, then the next you are sad. Your mood changes because you have a connection to them.


You feel at home with them, the feeling is mutual and known them for awhile, even though you have just met recently.


Sometimes you get a feeling that is indescribable when you both meet up in person; you can’t tell if it’s right or wrong.


Okay, these are just the initial signs of a spiritual and psychic connection. However, there is more to it than that. According to experts your connection with them has four layers, they are as follows;



Physical


The first is the physical connection, which defines attraction, genetic quality and the need to procreate.



Emotional


The second is an emotional connection which describes being in love, caring, feelings and seduction.



Psychological


The third is the psychological connection which defines personality, valuing attributes, intelligence and social status.



Spiritual


The fourth is the spiritual connection which we explain in this article.


These connections are like layers of an onion. You could have an emotional connection with someone that may include physical connection as well, but another inner layer is not present. You might admire someone’s value and personality but not be in love with them.


You can be in love with someone who has the wrong social status. These layers apply to non-romantic connections as well. To be spiritually connected, there needs to be a link at the fourth layer. The spiritual layer, unfortunately not many are in tune with this layer.


To know this layer even exists requires great spiritual work and discipline. Cosmically and spiritually this layer is ever present; some feel the full force of it through kundalini awakening or spiritual awakening. You could meet someone who awakens this spirit layer or makes it known to you.


You will sense it because they have a natural about them, they are easy to talk to. You feel comfortable around them. When two spirits join, it’s beautiful, to connect in the same spiritual path and life together.


Of course, those others layers can be present too; you can be attracted to them and connect with them on an emotional level.


Relationships last when we connect spiritually, there are times we search for our soulmate as if someone is out there just made for us and we have to find them, the better step would be to go out there and spiritually connect with someone and create your perfect soulmate."

Afraid To Meditate? Here's How To Do It The Easy Way!



Faery Blessings:

I used to dread even the thought of meditating...it brought fears to my mind as in "what if my breathing was off", "what if I am not sitting in the right position" and my favorite "what if I can't keep my mind on meditating"..I would literally talk myself out of meditation before I even started....but then I found "Elke Neher's" meditations on youtube by accident and discovered that all I had to do was sit and listen to them without thinking, breathing or sitting....just closing my eyes and let her talk while I relaxed into her voice...so when I got this email in my inbox, I knew it was time to share it with my clients to assist them with an extremely easy meditation....it was so easy it scared me that I was not really meditating but the feeling/feelings I had at the end of each of her meditations brought me peace and comfort so I knew I had found my daily meditations...so easy and not too time consuming and now I find myself looking forward to meditating to one of her "MANY" meditations on YouTube...I even included the link below to her YouTube page....she has so many to choose from and wee ones are sure you will find one that you need in your life...enjoy today's message and Be Blessed! Just click on the links below for YouTube and it will open in a new window...Enjoy!


"If you want to meditate but don't, ask yourself why you would put off something so beneficial to your well-being.
There are times when we feel the pull to meditate but are swayed from it by the excuses that spring to mind. We may think that we are too busy, have no time to ourselves, or that we do not have the right place to meditate. Our minds can think of dozens of reasons to put off meditation. But those are even stronger reasons to look past the illusion of the hustle and bustle of daily life and to connect to the place within that intersects with the timeless power and limitless potential of the universe. From that place we can experience that potent stillness that exists at all times, and it is only as far as away as our breath.


It might be useful to ask yourself why you would put off something so beneficial to your peace of mind and general well-being. There may be fear that if you were to stop your frantic pace, your world might fall apart, and then you would have to face the undeniable reality of who you really are and the results of the choices you have made. You might be afraid that you will be forced to make huge changes in order to align yourself with the universe and harness your true potential. Sometimes the frustrations of the known world seem less scary than the possibilities of the unknown. But the truth is that when we cooperate with the universe by creating our lives from the truth of our being, life becomes less of a struggle and more of a process of living blissfully on purpose.


Finding yourself alone for a few moments can give you the opportunity to turn within to infuse a sense of calm wisdom to your work. Whenever you can take the time to recenter and refocus, it will remind you how beneficial it is to connect to your source. Then you will make the time for longer sojourns of spirit, because once you are rejuvenated and enlivened by knowing that you are made of energy and light, you can channel the power to create your life in alignment with the highest potential of your soul."

Moving From Stress To Serenity

 

Faery Blessings:

Everyday in our lives there will more than likely have some stress, but when you learn to start out your day with God and ask Him to walk with you throughout the day, that even the stressful things can feel easier with Him by our side....also you can ask your angels to put up a mirror bubble around you so that anything anyone tries to send out towards you is simply reflected back to them...also you can ask your angels to go in before you wherever you go be it work, school or in public....so when I saw this article on beliefnet .com I thought I would share it with all of you....it was a reminder to me as well...enjoy today's message and Be Blessed!

 

"No one goes through life unscathed. We all have problems from time to time. We all at times go through bumpy periods in our relationships. We all have to deal with unexpected tragedies, such as job loss, divorce or the death or illness of loved ones. As a result, stress is an inevitable part of life.

 

Since we all have stress, the key to our contentment and happiness in life lies in how we deal with these stressful periods. If you can only be happy when every part of your life is perfect, you are going to be unhappy for the majority of your life. The key to being happy is being able to maintain your serenity, regardless of your circumstances.

 

Below are some strategies for maintaining your serenity in the midst of stressful situations. Consider applying them in your own life.

 

Focus on What You Can Control:

 

Here is what you can actually control in your life: You can control how you behave. You can control how you react to others and to situations. You can control how much or how little you work to achieve your goals. You can control how you spend your free time. Every other aspect of your life is outside of your control.

 

You cannot control what others do or say. You cannot control whether people like you. You cannot control the economy or your career opportunities. You cannot control if your marriage will be successful or will end in divorce. You cannot control whether your loved ones will become ill, and you cannot control when they will die. So, spending your mental and emotional energy on these issues is pointless.

 

To maintain your serenity in the midst of stress, it is important to spend your energy on what you can control – yourself. For example, last year my husband was on life support for a number of days. I am embarrassed to admit that for a couple of hours after I received the news, I was in shock and was not of use to anyone. But then, I pulled myself together. I focused on consulting with his doctors. I did research to understand every aspect of his situation and course of treatment. I then tried to explain his medical situation to his children and family in a way which was accurate.

 

That was all I could do. I could not control whether he lived or died. I could not control how other people reacted to his hospitalization. I could only do my best with how I handled the situation. That was all that was in my power.

 

When you are under stress, focus on what you can control – yourself. If you give your mental and emotional energy to what you cannot control, you will make yourself miserable. If you solely focus on what you yourself are able to do to improve the situation, you will feel more at peace.

 

Have Positive Distractions:

 

Typically, I am not a big fan of distractions. I don’t care for watching television, unless it is to pass the time during a long flight. I like to read books, but I generally read ones which educate me about a topic. Indulging in entertainment is not something that I do on a daily basis.

 

All that being said, there is a place for distractions. When you are under stress, by all means, indulge in positive distractions. Read books that transport you to another place and time. Watch movies or television shows that are light and funny. Do wholesome things to get your mind off your immediate problem.

 

Unfortunately, you can’t solve your problem by focusing all your mental energy on it. If only that were the case! That approach is recipe for driving yourself crazy.

 

Instead, once you have done all that you can to improve the situation, give your brain a break. By engaging in positive distractions, you can give yourself that much needed mental break from what is causing you stress. Then when you return to the situation, you will be refreshed and ready to face it with a clear head.

 

Remember That This Too Shall Pass:

 

Life is not static. It is constantly changing. If you look back over the course of the last year, I am sure that will be surprised at how much your life has changed in these last short 12 months.

 

So, when facing a stressful situation, try to be mindful that these circumstances will not last forever. I remember when I was in the middle of getting divorced, I thought, “How will I manage this stress?” My head and stomach hurt almost constantly. But within a year, my life had changed completely. I had moved. I got a great job. And I met a wonderful man. And within two years I was happily remarried.

 

Life simply does not stay the same. Our circumstances constantly change. And if you work hard, are kind and keep a good attitude, very often your circumstances will change for the better. So, take solace in the fact that any situation that you are facing is temporary.

 

Practice using the above strategies the next time that you face a stressful situation. Maintaining your serenity in stressful situations initially will not come naturally. It will be something that you have to work at. However, over time, it will become easier, and you will be able to maintain your serenity in all situations."

A Spiritual Warfare Prayer


Faery Blessings:

I receive emails saying that my daily writings are not their cup of tea and that is why I add the "REMOVE ME" choice at the end of my emails...but loving God the way I do, there are times when I am guided to share his message that He gives to me.....I also get something out of the message as well.....I read it before I send it to you and usually there is something in it I need as well...I share because I want the message to touch the heart/hearts of my clients as well as it does for me..not trying to push my spirituality off on anyone,  just me sharing it with you...for those it offends, my apologies and please feel free to ask me to "Remove" you in the subject line..and daily I pray for you all...Enjoy today's message from crosswalk .com and Be Blessed!



"Are you in a battle today, and it's taking more than just a physical toll on you? Are you finding it difficult to find the words to tell the devil to be gone? Spiritual warfare is crippling, real, and troublesome, but Jesus has already won us the victory! Pray along with these words now and let the Lord break the chains of fear and bondage!



"Jesus, sometimes I can almost sense the heaviness of pressure mounting and the ominous presence of darkness around me. I recognize my enemy is at work again. Whether he's trying to discourage me to get sidetracked, to fall into temptation, to give up, or to take my eyes off you, he's always hanging around.


I need your supernatural power, Lord, to stand strong and not surrender. Physical force won't help, because you've said the weapons of our warfare are different from those in this world. As believers, ours are powerful and can demolish strongholds and lies. These supernatural weapons originate from you. By your precious name and blood, Jesus, I'm asking you to confuse Satan and cancel his attempts to shut me and my influence down. Help me not to become discouraged or to give in when heavy times of testing come.


When I'm tired and weak, you are strong, Lord, and you are my only source of help. I cannot fight without you. Teach me how to pray and to trust you to pull down those strongholds that keep me or others helpless. Guard me from isolation that leaves me exposed and vulnerable. I believe you destroyed the power of my enemy by your death and resurrection. But like a bad penny, my enemy keeps showing up, whispering lies, twisting the truth, and attempting to inflate my selfish pride. He never gives up.


I am declaring the devil and his demons liars today, Lord. Through the power of your precious name and blood, I agree with your Word and the truth that you are in me and that you are greater than my enemy who wants to rule the world. You, your Word, and prayer, Lord, are my secret weapons. I belong to you, and that fills me with a powerful God-confidence. I want to constantly dress in the spiritual armor you give me. Help me use it to defend others from Satan's fiery darts as well. No one and nothing can snatch me away from your hand.


Strengthen my faith, Lord. Forgive my sins, so that I may be clean in your righteousness. Make me brave, so I can stand and fight the spiritual battles in my life and in our world. Give me your wisdom and discernment so I won't be caught off guard. Together, Lord, we'll win, because in truth, you already have.


In Jesus's powerful name before which every knee shall bow, Amen!

Releasing Guilt: Let Go And Let God


Faery Blessings:

I used to be the guilt ridden person who tried to make everybody happy...I was the one they came to for answers, but who had my answers...if they needed help with money or time or rides, I was there...this year God gave me my word for the year and it is "NO"....I have to learn how to say "NO" more to others that really don't need me and say "YES" to those who truly do...but the guilt would weigh on me if I could not, but then I realized that the reason I felt drained and tired all the time was due to saying YES to the wrong people and NO to the wrong people....I had it backwards and my priorities mixed up....so when I got this in my email from DailyOM I realized it was a wee message from God telling me I finally got it and get let the guilt go...so enjoy today's message and Be Blessed!


P.S. The reason I share pieces of my life with you(as I did above) is to let you know that even though I advise you, I too have things I work through as well and that I am not perfect..none of us are...but I hope in sharing a piece of me that you understand that honestly I do know what you are going through.


"Dwelling in guilt is like living your life with an anchor tied to your ankles, dragging you down.


Learning to accept the things that we perceive as wrong can be a difficult task for many of us. Often we have been brought up to accept that it is normal to feel guilty about our actions and that by doing so we will make everything seem alright within ourselves. Even though we might feel that we have a reason to make up for the choices we have made, it is much more important for us to learn how to deal with them in a healthy and positive way, such as through forgiveness and understanding.


When we can look back at our past and really assess what has happened, we begin to realize that there are many dimensions to our actions. While feeling guilty might assuage our feelings at first, it is really only a short-term solution. It is all too ironic that being hard on ourselves is the easy way out. If we truly are able to gaze upon our lives through the lens of compassion, however, we will be able to see that there is much more to what we do and have done than we realize. Perhaps we were simply trying to protect ourselves or others and did the best we could at the time, or maybe we thought we had no other recourse and chose a solution in the heat of the moment. Once we can understand that dwelling in our negative feelings will only make us feel worse, we will come to recognize that it is really only through forgiving ourselves that we can transform our feelings and truly heal any resentment we have about our past.


Giving ourselves permission to feel at peace with our past actions is one of the most positive steps we can take toward living a life free from regrets, disappointments, and guilt. The more we are able to remind ourselves that the true path to a peaceful mind and heart is through acceptance of every part of our lives and actions, the more harmony and inner joy we will experience in all aspects of our lives."

God Knows Our Way and His Plans Are Good


Faery Blessings:

This article I found on crosswalk .com by Debby McDaniel struck a chord in me this morning.....Many of us get frustrated when things don't go our way or when we expect them to happen or it has taken a long time or when we feel that we are always on the losing end or feeling as if we will never find our mate....whatever your irritation or frustration is, blaming it on God will not help....yes God can do anything he wants but sometimes he watches out for us by not giving me what we "think" we want to save us from what he sees could damage us in our future....so today embrace your "whatever" and surrender it up and enjoy todays message and Be Blessed!



“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11


Sometimes, we may not believe this is true. Troubles swirl around us, pressures feel too great, life seems hard. We might even feel like God has forgotten us and left us facing the struggles all alone.


Yet in the background of this great verse, we're reminded that God spoke these words to His people, not when times were easy, but when times were very hard. They would endure 70 years of captivity, they would experience great suffering. And it's right there, in the midst of all that, we can see the hope of God shine through.


He didn't leave his people in the tough trials. He won't leave us there either. He walks us through, reminding us that His plans are for good, for a future, for a hope. He is right with us, and breathes confidence and peace, that we will press through the struggle, and come out to the other side, stronger, faith-filled. He assures us that He will never waste the pain of what we experience in this life, but will bring greater good and blessing because of it.


If you find yourself facing hard times today, or maybe you’ve just walked through a difficult year, this verse is your reminder – there’s hope ahead. Be confident of this, God’s not finished yet. You're still here, you're gaining strength and perseverance through the trials. He has good in store, great purpose in all that we walk through, no matter how hard it may be.


He sees the big picture of our lives, and He's aware of every little detail too. He knows what He's doing, even when we can't see it all yet. He often works behind the scenes that unfold our every day, in the places where we may not always understand His plans. Even through all our seasons of waiting.


So we can trust...that He has our best in mind. He's got our back. He's with us right now. And He's secured our future too.


Resting in that truth today. There's peace in knowing we don't have to try hard to control it all. We can let go of the need to try to figure it all out, or the striving of trying to make things happen.


God knows, He understands, we’re never alone.


Keep pressing through.


He loves you.


He cares.


He is with you.


Peace.


Intersecting Faith & Life: Have the trials you’ve been walking through or the problems you’ve faced caused you to lose some hope? Bring it all before God today. Let go of the need to have it all make sense right now. Look to Him. Ask for His fresh filling and renewal. Be reminded of His truth, that He will use it all for good somehow, and has a great future and hope for you still in store."

Think About What You’re Thinking About


Faery Blessings:

Oh My!!! Many years ago there was nothing anybody could tell me about my thoughts....they were negative and full of doubt, insecurity and neediness and insecurity...I trusted no one, had been hurt so much in my life that my mind automatically gravitated towards the worst end scenario in my mind and I wondered why me Lord? What have I ever done to deserve all this happening in my life....and I could hear a still small voice that said "well your thinking it, must mean you want it to happen in your life"...that almost stopped me in my tracks, but I had a few more lessons in life concerning allowing negative thoughts to make a home in my mind...you see your mind does not know if what you dwell on or think about a lot is real or not and can most times manifest that into your reality......it is not possible to be positive all the time and thoughts will come in but you can now "think about what you are thinking about" and begin to push the thoughts out shortly after they have entered so that they do not become your reality...enjoy today's message from Joyce Meyer and Be Blessed!


"For many years of my life, I didn’t realize that I could choose my thoughts. I simply thought whatever fell into my head; mostly lies from the enemy or just plain nonsense—things that really were not worth spending my time thinking about. Then one day, God spoke to my heart: Think about what you’re thinking about. It was a major turning point for me! You see, when we take time to ask ourselves, “What have I been thinking about?” we can trace our problems and be on our way to freedom very quickly.


"Did you know you can be free from negative thinking? The first step to your freedom is facing the truth and saying, "I'm a negative person and I want to change." If you really want to, you can overcome it because according to the Bible, you're a new person in Christ (see 2 Corinthians 5:17).


Your next step is to find out what may be blocking any positive progress.



Identify Your Obstacles


Have you ever thought that nothing good is going to happen to you? Maybe you've even said something like "If I don't expect anything good to happen, I won't be disappointed if it doesn't."These thoughts are obstacles in your mind, and simply recognizing them will pave the way to your freedom. As Christians, we need to learn to fight for our thoughts, because our minds don't automatically come into agreement with God's plans.


I can look back at it and remember thinking, I'm probably never going to be in worldwide ministry—I probably just made that up because I wanted it to happen. It probably wasn't God's will at all. This was my obstacle, and it was a lie all the time. I had encountered so many disappointments in my life that I was afraid to believe anything good might happen. And when I really began to study the Word and to trust God to restore me, I realized my negativism had to go.



Practice the Positive


Once you've identified any obstacles, the next step is to start practicing being positive in all kinds of situations. If you're going through a difficult time in life, start believing that God will work things out for your good.


Even positive thinkers deal with disappointing situations. The difference is that they have learned to let things roll off their back and enjoy life no matter what happens.



Say What God's Word Says


Nearly everything God has brought me through has happened by believing and confessing His Word. I recommend that you not only purposely think right thoughts, but that you go the extra mile and speak them out loud as personal confessions of faith (see Mark 4:24).


Basically, God's telling us that the more time we spend meditating on His Word, the more we will see the benefits in our everyday lives and even have a closer relationship with Him. He even promises we'll be prosperous and successful! (See Joshua 1:8)


I encourage you to spend time examining His Word and comparing it to your thought life. Give God time to help you put your thoughts in line with His.


Make up your mind to work toward changing your way of thinking. I've found the best way to become a positive thinker is to ask God for a lot of help—and to ask for it often."
