Esther Abraham Hicks is an amazing American inspirational speaker and author.   Below is one of my favorite recordings, “Living Happily Ever After.”  Please listen and enjoy her words of encouragement!

 

Shift Your Perception

Standard

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”  (Romans 12:1–2).

When we are not our best selves, we can view people, things, and situations in a negative way.  If we want to transform our lives, we have to renew our minds.  When we change our way of thinking, we can discern what is true and righteous.

Focus on What’s Right

Standard

We will experience many obstacles in life.  Usually, our first reaction is to resist what is happening.  We also want to know why it is happening.  What we really need to do is focus on getting though the situation and to think positive about what we can learn from it.  It’s a growing experience.  We may come to find out later or we may never know.  Our faith is being put to the test.

Calling All Parents

Standard
Calling All Parents

Parents beware: your children watch every move you make inside the home and outside the home.  Right now, they are absorbing everything there is to know about life.  Please be good role models for them, because they are depending on you to teach them all that you know.  This is good, because you can actually mold them into becoming great adults. Your children are going to grow up being like you.  So, are you happy and content?  Do you like yourself?  Are you a calm and patient person or are you uptight and anxious?  Do you have manners, and are you polite and respectful toward others?  How do you react to negative situations?  Do you eat healthy food, and are you active?  Maybe you need to change in some areas so that you can be the best role models you can be for your children.  This is the perfect time to do so while they are still young and wanting to learn.  Do it for you and them, because they need your guidance.  Be very grateful for your children.  They are blessings from God!

Greatest Teacher

Standard

Do you ever wish you could go back to a younger age in life?  I’ve heard many people say they wish they were younger but only if they knew then what they know now.  What do you know now?  Have your learned from your past experiences?  Experiences can sting us and teach us not to do that again or positive experiences can motivate us to keep doing what we’re doing.  We learn more from our experiences than anything no matter if they’re good or bad.  Experiences are our greatest teachers.  Oscar Wilde wrote this great quote:

“Experience is the hardest kind of teacher. It gives you the test first and the lesson afterward.”

Marianne Williamson

Standard

Here are some great quotes by American spiritual teacher, author, and lecturer, Marianne Williamson:

The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.
We are not held back by the love we didn’t receive in the past, but by the love we’re not extending in the present.

We think we need to understand people to know whether or not they’re lovable, but in fact until we love them we can never understand them.

 

For Sure

Standard

What do you know for certain?  What can you say, feel, and know in your heart that you are absolutely sure about?  Speaking from my past experiences, the list below is what I know for sure and truly believe:

  • There are many people who are discouraged with life.
  • Your thoughts can create evil.
  • It is hard work and a struggle when you swim against the flow of water (life).
  • Negativity causes health issues.
  • Life is really good and not what you may think it is.
  • You attract who or what you think about.
  • You reap what you sow.
  • You need consciousness to stay in the present moment.
  • Meditation heals your mind, body, and soul.
  • We were put on this earth to help each other.
  • When your intentions are aligned with the source of all creation, you can create the life you desire.
  • Where there is love there is peace.
  • A higher divine power exists and that I am loved.

Believe

Standard

Believe in yourself; believe you are beautiful inside and out; believe you are good enough; believe all good things are happening for you; believe the universe is working to give you what you want; believe you are capable of achieving greatness in your wonderful life; believe there is goodness in everyone.

 

Life’s Lessons

Standard

Just when things are moving along fine and then BAM something bad happens (at least we think so at the time).  It has happened to all of us.  We immediately ask why.  Why did this happen, what am I doing wrong, why can’t things work out, etc.  It’s especially hard on parents when it happens to their children.  Some parents would rather take the fall than to see their children suffer.  God wants us to grow in grace.  God wants us all to learn to be strong and responsible but yet loving and compassionate.  How do we learn to be good if there isn’t bad?  How would we know about light if there wasn’t dark?  We have to learn to accept things as they are, because it’s all part of life’s lessons.  Keep the faith no matter what.
