We all go through dips, where inspiration and encouragement seem far from us. I decided to bring some good ideas to inspire those who are feeling a bit less motivated right now. Glean from these and create your own! Do not forget to dream. When you do, dream BIGGER!

Meditate to gain access to the seeds of innovation that live inside of you! We all have those God-given seeds of destiny planted within our spiritual DNA. When we seek, we find. Jesus taught us this great lesson! When feeling less inspired, dig deeper within, ask the right questions, and wait for the answers.

Keep focused on your destiny. Copying others will cause you to miss what future is meant for just you! God has a specific plan for your life. When you find those plans, point your determination due north and follow that star to your purpose!

Journal your ideas and read them back to yourself often. Writing will often cause inspiration to flow where you were once clogged. Journaling ideas or doodling them on paper will always help purpose flow. Thoughts are like rivers. They have their own current. Do not follow the river of others. Keep in your own river. Fish for the right things and draw up your nets from the areas that show you the most prosperity.

Record your inspiration in your own voice on your phone, computer, or recorder. Then play it for yourself over and over. Add ideas and create a running recording of all the things that come to you.

Watch for signs in life. God and angels bring us signs and ideas that lead us toward our destinies. We have help! Signs and words also come from other people. Keep attuned to what others say, record, or write what is relevant to you.

Keep fostering inspiration daily. Pray for it, and you will receive it. God created a Universe of desire, inspiration, and innovation.

Find a role model and study how they brought their ideas to fruition! We are all parts of a whole. We learn from others. Do not forget to give others credit where credit is due! They deserve it for all they have taught you!

Remember, you are bigger than you think. You are a vast person with infinite potential. All you truly need to do is believe, receive, and achieve!

What is “the Sacred”

The sacred is what someone might consider to be divine, holy, of religious content, or deserving of veneration. What is sacred is different for everyone. When I personally think of the word I consider what is holy for me. This can be a holy moment of meditative prayer. Or, it can be a meaningful photo of what is connected to the divine that I put up on my wall. Some consider the bible sacred, and for others it might be another book they hold to be holy.

We think of these things as holy and sacred because of the connection or ideas they bring up. Sometimes it’s a feeling or sense of reverence. Our bodies were meant for worship and containment of the divine. We are human and yet considered the temple of God. Sometimes when I close my eyes I think of the Spirit of God reflected from my heart and filled into my body. For me, this is a sacred moment. My heart has a sense of expansion with love and adoration of what is bigger and greater than my human self.

To know we house this greatness is also a sacred knowledge, for no one knows this unless they have been enlightened to that knowledge. Once it is known, one can not go back to unknowing. It becomes a solid and righteous part of our existence. To know what we embody and carry is very empowering. When we truly know, the empowerment is greatly expanded. The greatness remains solid within us as long as we consider it holy and sacred. Once our pride starts to think it comes from our humanness we have stomped on God’s power. It happens this way so we will keep God holy, sacred, and powerful in our lives. To do this is to inhabit the ways and character of God. To forsake it is to weaken ourselves, bowing down to what is human, flesh, and ego. This is pride and pride always comes before a fall.

Whatever is sacred for you, it’s best to remember why it is and to uphold it within that wisdom. Sacred time, for instance, is just that because it brings us presence of divinity we can receive in no similar way. To take a holy breath with God, to fill our hearts with the love of God, to enjoy fellowship within the presence of our Creator, is the greatest holy moment we can practice.

Practice is a key word here. Nothing stays sacred for us without sacred practice. We do this to create a habit. Remember, our lives spring forth from the issues we carry in our hearts. Without sacred and holy practice, we enter into a realm of forgetting who we are and why we are here.

To grab a sense of what is sacred for you, spend some special time practicing that moment and then do it daily. You will find it is habit forming. Within days your perspective will change to one that is a reflection of what is spiritually God. Your heart will be changed by being in the presence of holy love. If you are struggling with issues that drain you, or searching for answers, these moments become even more important.

I’m going to ask that you close your eyes for a few moments and simply ask that which is sacred to help remind you of who and whose you are. Breathe deeply. Take in the elements that nurture your being. They are the same elements of the earth. We have breath/air, water, fire/energy, nutrients similar to those that come from the earth’s soil, and space that we have available to fill our lives with presence.

Consider this today. What is sacred to you and what is sacred practice? Make it a habit in your life. Journal the changes this habit brings or adds to your life. Over time you will see what sacred practice does to enhance every part of your existence.

Some Inspiration From My Mother in Law Now in Heaven…

main_picture_548739d2a63fb

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When funds are low, and debts are high,

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,

Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

 

Life is strange with its twists and turns,

As everyone of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about,

When he might have won had he stuck it out;

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,

You may succeed with another blow.

 

Success is failure turned inside out,

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,

And you can never tell how close you are,

It may be near when it seems so far;

So stick to the fight when you are hardest hit,

It’s when things seem worse

That you must not quit.
