✨ Why our ego's are raging... and why that means growth and is a cause for celebration.✨
Our ego's are to keep us safe. It's like a mechanism that kicks in when we may not feel so safe or comfortable. It tells us when we may be burned by a hot pan, but it's also that voice that tells us we may not be good enough at something. Or that we shouldn't try something. It's that voice we have to learn to quiet to meditate. .
The louder our ego gets, the more persistent it is, the more we know we're on the right path. Because we WANT to grow and change and conquer fears. So if our ego is freaking out that means some major breakthroughs are happening. .
Often my guides keep me up at night talking but last night it was my ego. It was saying that the video I did yesterday wasn't good enough. It was bringing up every 'mistake' I made. .
The video I did yesterday wasn't perfect. I had done everything I planned to say before people jumped on. Then they jumped on and wanted cards (which I had said I'd do). But I hadn't been clear with myself where I would draw that line and stop pulling cards. So then I pulled them for everyone but in the meantime my head was starting to hurt. And I just kept going. And now my ego says that it was all awful. .
It may not have been my best but a wise soul once asked me if I'm not good enough just being myself. Point made. .
I've also discovered that the stuff I'm most critical of, that my ego rages over, is often the most powerful. Was my video my most powerful? I don't feel it was, but we are our own worst critic. It is what it is and I'll be back on today to talk about Amethyst and will do a mini meditation with it on video. Will it be perfect? Definitely not. But it'll be exactly what it is and I trust it's exactly right. .

One day while in the nail salon, i told the nail tech how i wanted my nails and she disagreed with my request. Of course she still did it. But, she begin to speak in Chinese and my thoughts begin to race.
“Girl i know you talking about me.😡”
“How you getting a attitude about MY nails that IM paying for?” In my mind, i was going OFF. Then God said to me, “what are you focusing on?”🤔
Originally my focus was cute nails. But because of HER chatter, because of HER attitude, I lost MY focus.
So idk if she did every nail the way i wanted her to or not. By the time I got my focus back she was done with my nails 😅
Whose opinion or chatter are you allowing to take your focus? 👉🏾- It could be that coworker at work that gets on your nerve and makes you forget that your main focus is a paycheck and not friends. 👉🏾- It could be that person that makes a gesture every time you walk in class so now you don’t want to go. But your main focus was to pass the class not please the other students. 👉🏾- It could be the person that looks at what you have on when you walk in church so now you’re worried about their opinion when your main focus was to grow closer to God. 👉🏾 It could be that person that you told a new idea to and they mentioned every thing that could go wrong and now you’re doubting yourself when your main focus was to step out on faith.
These are just a few examples of times where “filtering your focus” is a necessity. So i encourage you today, love your brother and sister but never let them blur your focus. Especially if it’s a promise that God gave to you and you only. Keep the main thing, the main thing ❤️
We weren’t set free to not live set free.
Let’s not waste these precious days. Let’s not make it as hard as we’ve been making it. Let’s turn up the music and get back at it.
Forgive, set a goal, get up off the couch and take a walk, apologize, let it go, have the conversation you need to to bring closure...God says over and over, leave the past behind you. It’s where the enemy like’s to lurk.
"Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders - he’ll carry your load, he’ll help you out.
He’ll never let good people topple into ruin.” (Psalm 55:22)
Cast your cares, and get going again. His plan for your life matters too much not to..
Invisible bricks... They sure feel real when they are thrown at us don't they?
Negativity, hate, and opinion.... right smack in the forehead... we will all get hit at some point.... and even sadder.... We have all thrown them at some point...YUCK.
Sadly... many of us... not only catch a brick... we then pick up those bricks... and start building walls.... and before we know it we are in a prison... a prison WE built.
But here is the thing... the value of THEIR opinion about YOUR life... only carries the weight you give it... the blow is only as strong as you allow it to be... Opinion bears ZERO weight in reality... ZERO. Negativity also bears ZERO weight unless you decide to pick it up and carry it too... Stay away from building that invisible prison... If you build anything... build a house of hope... using bricks of acceptance and positive vibes... for yourself and for others.... Take ownership of the ugly we've thrown... and STOP throwing it.
And if you get caught throwing anything at all... let it be affirmation and kindness... every single time. As we are approaching this holiday season- be kind. That is all. Oh how easy, right? Love, laugh, and build one another up. Reach out to those in need. Be a giver and a doer. A giving heart is a loving heart. #love#bekind#hope#forgiveness#griefsupport#savethevets#savesomeone#bemindful#mindset
Honestly, I don’t even know why I read my news app...🧐There is never anything positive on there - just a reiteration of all the sadness in this world. It’s exhausting trying to consistently cheer myself up when I carry the weight of sadness from all I see and hear. My prayer list is literally a billion miles long!🙏🏼 If we could all just hate less, judge less, demean less, hurt less, harass less, kill less, criticize less, fight less, and LOVE MORE ❤️- this earth space would be a lot nicer place. BE NICE to people. BE KIND to people. BE RESPECTFUL to people. SHARE LOVE with people. What you put out into this world does come back! It’s only Tuesday, there is plenty of time to turn this week into a positive platform full of love, grace, and gratitude. We all need a lot more Jesus in our hearts! Now go out today and pay it forward.🤟🏼#godislove#godisgood#bekind#love#cross#stopthehate#gratitude#forgiveness

I thought of a while back.
One moment I had my inner child.
So close to me, she kept me calm.
Her innocent self sparkled most stars of my body's skies.
And, anytime my mind saw us, fingers intertwined, it was peaceful.
The harmony within.
The coexistence without.
Holding on to my inner child has been a silent burden for days.
I miss how fragile she was before she knew so much bad about the world.
As I grew up, the scares and courage of the universe told me to let go.
It said, 'you need to grow, climb up, add more healing to the hurt - and your childhood will no longer be a bother.'
But today, I sit here missing the child that I was.
She visited a part of my existence today.
She lingers in my head like a love I once knew.
There's a lot to tell her.
I know she's still here. I feel.
I let her go.
And so, I have to find her.
Maybe this time, ask her to stay for good and watch the woman in me grow.
"disease to please" ...legit my life story in every part of my life. It has burnt me out and left completed depleted of self-esteem, love and all the good stuff in between. Folks took as much as they could before I had a chance to make myself full. I can't blame anyone because I had allowed it for the past 30 years of my life. The interesting part is, noone knew because , I didn't want to let anyone down and simply, because of the ego. So, over the past year doing the work of getting back my self-esteem,pride, confidence and learning to actually stand up for myself; at a higher consciousness, while at the same time, learning to forgive myself and others for the mistakes that were made. Its hard because when you try to grow into better and higher version of yourself, it has come at a surprises to me that the same people you have given your last drop of blood too are the same people who don't understand working at higher level. I just always assumed for some reason, that when you make the change, others would see it and appreciate it for what it is and work at that level. But alas, I left feeling disappointed but yet I'm at peace because I know now that people come in your life reason and season and as I grow and become aware, it's okay that you grow out of people and that people don't see things the same as I because everyone has their own reasons for doing what they do whether I agree with it or not. Living by the notion of love is surprisingly a lonely feat as most aren't ready for it yet but again that it's okay. My learnings to break from this "disease" is teaching a lot about myself and others, which are things that I would probably never learned if I didn't start this process of change. Note for the day: always make sure you love yourself FULLY first before you can start giving to others. 🖤💜💛💚💙

“To the Lord Jesus, who bought us with a great price, we owe an undying debt of gratitude. It is impossible for us, weak mortals as we are, to fully comprehend and appreciate the suffering he endured on the cross so that he might gain for us victory over death. And even less can we understand the suffering he endured in Gethsemane so that we might obtain forgiveness of our sins.” ⠀
Marion G. Romney, Ensign, November 1982⠀
