Abortion

It breaks my heart to read about all that is happening in regards to the subject of abortion.

Truly, life is sacred. Have we not yet understood the consequences we will face when a child, a soul, is aborted, let alone killed when out of the womb? I don't understand.

Vengeance is mine saith the Lord.

The Past

We let the past go by thinking differently in the now. You are not bound to your past. Some of us feel that if we have done something that we deem as wrong that we can not change; that we are beholden to the past but this is untrue. There is only the now and in this very moment you have the power, given you by God, to change who you are; to be a different person. All you need do is to begin thinking differently; to begin imaging differently and in time your life will begin to outplay these new thoughts and images. How long does it take? It takes as long as it takes you to submit to the new and let go of the past. Simple as that.

Be Consistent in Thought

All of your desires are meant to come into fruition. If you are not receiving what you desire then all you have to do is change your thoughts on that subject. Be consistent in the new thought. This is not a one off. Being optimistic, being positive, knowing you are worthy, being happy is a lifestyle. Begin to speak, think and act according to what you want. It works. It may take a little time depending on how persistent you are but it does work. This I know for sure.

Create a Switch

As we all know, our minds can often go places we don't want it to go. If we let it run rampant, we will soon find ourselves in a place of self-pity, loathing, hate, guilt and all the emotions we classify as "bad." Because of this, we must take responsibility for our thoughts and create a switch. A switch is something that turns something on or off - as in a light switch. In this case you are creating a mental switch. Think of a serene, joyful scene or person and create a short but powerful story. Practice this switch in your head often so that it becomes natural. Whenever you find yourself in a thought you do not like turn your switch on immediately. Begin to think of that beautiful scene, person etc. and milk it, add to the story, go off into that story and never look back. You will find that you can't even remember what you were thinking of before you switched the switch. Enjoy your journey to wholeness.

Keep Going

Many will tell you to never give up and sometimes it's annoying because you might be in a place where you can't see the light of day - you can't see a way out from where you are. There were (and are) many times when I have said, "I give up. I'm not fighting this anymore," and it actually felt good to say it because it offered me relief from trying to make things happen. I have learned that when I "try" to do something, or make something happen, I am going in the wrong direction. Things just get worse. There is no amount of struggle, and there doesn't need to be struggle, that will get me any further than if I am relaxed. So, now when I start to "try" I stop myself and let go of what I am trying to accomplish and I focus on something else. Giving up on the struggle and the trying is okay and I have done it many times but I always keep going. I have just learned to take the path that is easier, the path that is paved with joy and relaxation, the path of knowing that all is well and coming into fruition. And you can, too. Don't ever let someone tell you that you should struggle or things need to be hard for you to get what you want. This is a lie. God does not struggle to make the grass grow or the sun to shine. God just knows and it is done. God desires and it is fulfilled. You come from God. God is within you, is you, and so things must be easy for you, as well.
