5-Minute Morning Affirmations – Higher Vibration Affirmations

We don’t live in a world anymore where we can afford low-vibration thinking and energy in high places. However, my confidence that those power will suddenly raise their vibrations and mend their ways is low.

To paraphrase Mary Kay Ash, “If it’s to be, it’s up to us.”

These affirmations help you focus and raise your vibration to begin your day. This makes you a conduit through whom love, light, and a raised vibration can thrive in the world.

If enough of us do that each day, the days of fear and anger and division are numbered on this planet,

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you are awesome!

5-Minute Affirmations – Patience Affirmations Video

Patience, they say, is a virtue. I’d argue it’s a key to our sanity and the gateway to deeper wisdom.

You may have noticed. The universe doesn’t always do things exactly on our timetable and in the way we expect. Often, it winds up being way better than we expected once an intention arrives. In the meantime, we can hyperventilate and lose our grounding because things didn’t go precisely according to our plan.

This is one of the many reasons it’s so important to cultivate a wise patience that recognizes, once we’ve done all we can to manifest our goals, that the universe is operating on the universe’s schedule.

Ralph Waldo Emerson counseled, “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” 2300 years earlier Lao Tzu had similar advice, “The Way is ever without action, yet nothing is left undone.”

Your moment, your dream, your destiny IS coming. You just need to keep on keeping on and keep breathing in and out.

How do you foster that patience in an impatient world? I’ve often said that affirmations are a workhorse a tool for just about anything. Our thoughts are made of words and other people are filling our heads with their words all day long.

Affirmations are a way for you to consciously fill your mind with words you choose. The video above packs 21 Patience Affirmations repeated twice into about six minutes. With regular listening for a couple of weeks, you’ll have multiple powerful patience messages ready to sweep your impatience out of your mind.

Know for certain that good things are coming. Let them!

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!

Money Is Not Evil It’s Energy

Many of us have a very negative relationship with money. We’ve heard our whole lives that it’s “the root of all evil.” Is it really?

We feel guilty for wanting it and for having it. This is a battle I’ve fought in my own life. We need to let it go.

It’s true money is the basis for many evil actions in the world. Its pursuit manifests greed, selfishness, even war and exploitation. Those are actions of human minds and human hearts.

Money itself is simply a means of exchange. Since all exchanges are really exchanges of energy. Money is a means of exchanging measured amounts of energy.

The same hearts and minds that use it to commit the evil acts mentioned above can use it exchange enormous good. You can use it ethically both to help others and appropriate an abundant lifestyle during your time here on Earth.

You’re not less spiritual or ethical for wanting that or achieving it.

Perhaps there is a better way to exchange energy than money and perhaps one day human civilization will find it and adopt it.

For now, money is the means of having the experiences and the things that make life enjoyable.

We’re all familiar with other aphorisms. The best things in life are free and money can’t buy love or happiness. True enough. I’m not suggesting an adoration for money or elevating it above what it deserves. Rather, I’m suggesting that spending your life at war with it only serves to deny you a life you can have and certainly deserve.

LOVE this quote by Jake Ducey! It sums us of power money gives us to do good.

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you are awesome!

I’ll write to you again soon.

Happy Star Trek Day – How Has Star Trek Positively Shaped Your Life?

TODAY’S QUESTION: WHAT POSITIVE IMPACT HAS STAR TREK HAD ON YOUR LIFE?

So, I know this question won’t resonate with everyone in the group. For those that it does resonate with, and you know who you are, what positive impact has Star Trek had on your life?

MY STAR TREK STORY

My story with Star Trek goes back to my earliest days back in the 1960s. I vaguely remember watching the last couple of seasons in the TOS original run. Then, fortunately, it went into reruns in Kansas City almost immediately on our UHF station.

That ran on late Saturday afternoons and I would stop what I was doing to go inside and watch Star Trek.

When Next Generation came along in the late 80s, it became and remains my all-time favorite television series. I hung on through DS9 & Voyager and then life intervened.

It was only years later that I doubled back and realized what a great series Enterprise actually was and have since consumed the newer series in real time.

For me, Star Trek has always been about Gene Roddenberry’s positive vision for humanity.

1) That there will be a time when humanity will set aside the worst in us and aspire to the highest in us.
2) That there will come a time, beyond our current economic models, where technology will abolish human need.
3) That there will come a time when humanity joins the family of advanced spacefaring cultures that likely populate the galaxy around us.

Roddenberry’s vision came about only after humanity self-destructed and rose again from those ashes. It has always been an remains my hope that we can reach these lofty goals without suffering through that fate.

More than anything, Star Trek taught me, from a very early age, to dream big both for myself and for our species. That vision has and continues to profoundly shape my world view. It has many times girded me against the impulse to turn cynical, give up on humanity.

We are a species with amazing potential and Star Trek is always there to remind us of that.

Happy Star Trek Day!
