Mission Statements

June 22, 2014

Hi,

An amazing thing happened this week: I re wrote my personal mission statement; change showed up immediately; and I’m amazed at the speed.

The Call That Changed My Mission
The caller was stating all the reasons she couldn’t do what the social worker was asking of her. As she spoke, stories of people who’ve been through hell and back floated through my mind.

Very little was being asked of this woman, yet she refused to even consider ways to meet these requests.

That evening, I asked God what I was doing to attract such calls: calls that didn’t allow me to fulfill my calling of providing information and guidance to those who are starting over after adversity strikes.

Clarity
It seems I was confused about who I am to serve.

It seems that my people are doers, achievers and learners. They do what is asked of them and more. They understand and live by the Law of Compensation: what you give is what you get; what you withhold is withheld from you.

My people know that they have been successful and will be so again. What they are going through now is just a minor bump in the road.

They call me for the information and guidance needed to get through this road bump.

Instant Acceptance
As I received this message, I accepted it immediately. I knew I was hearing truth.

Results
All of my calls since then have been from people who seek wisdom and guidance and who don’t argue or fuss. When the call ends, I feel the caller’s peace.

Perhaps it is time for all of us to gain clarity about our mission, who we are to serve and the form that service is to take; perhaps it’s time that all of us help those we serve gain peace, and then, feel that peace within our Self.

It’s time to ask the angels for clarity of mission and who we are to serve.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,

We are grateful for all we have, and all we be and do. We give thanks that we are clear about our gifts and talents. We can name each one. We accept these gifts and talents.

We recognize that each of us is a genius in at least one area. We recognize that we are experts and masters of our gifts.  We give thanks for this recognition and this mastery.

This knowledge of Self has brought us much peace; for that we give thanks.

Now we asked that we be given additional information: who are we to serve and how. We give thanks for this information.

We are grateful for the clarity this knowledge brings. We accept the change this knowledge might bring.

And so it is.

Peace,

Barbara

Cosmic 2 x 4

June 10, 2014

Hi,

I received a call from someone who said she was at the end of her rope, and then proceeded to list all the wounds that had and were appearing in her life. They were the usual: unemployment, loss of possessions and illness.

Robert Schuller
The first words out of my mouth were: “Remember what Robert Schuller, the founding pastor of the Crystal Cathedral, said, “At the end of your rope? Grab another rope!”

She laughed and said she would remember that.

Cosmic Two by Four
I went on to explain that she was being hit by the cosmic two by four. The Cosmic two by four concept is explained by Rita Louise in her book Avoiding the Cosmic 2 x 4.  

The cosmic two by four attacks when we haven’t heard or refuse to take action on directives sent by the Universe (God).

Silence and Listening
We need to be silent and in stillness for at least some part of each day so that we can hear what is being said to us on the inside where God dwells. We need to listen for this voice.

One can always ask that this inside voice be stronger, clearer and easier to understand. In fact, a good affirmation to repeat several times a day is, “I hear my strong, clear, understandable inner voice. I easily know what it is saying to me.”

Ask the Angels
We can, also, ask the angels for help.

Angels of all of us,

We realize that God, you, and others in the spiritual realm communicate with us. We don’t always hear these messages. Sometimes, when we hear, we don’t understand, and, sometimes, we hear and understand but are afraid to obey.

We ask that we only hear the messages from God, you angels, the ascended masters and teachers and those who have are best interest in mind. We ask that we only hear and be in the presence of those who truly want the very best for us.

Help us let all others go past us without troubling us or invading our space.

We ask that our inner voice be made strong, clear, powerful and understandable. We ask that this voice speak in our primary language so that there is no guessing but instant knowing.

We ask that when we receive these messages that we, also, receive the peace that comes from being with those who desire the best for us and that we receive the peace that comes from knowing that all is well and will continue to be so.

Angels of all of us,

We are grateful for your help and guidance. We give thanks that we know God dwells within and is with us in all times and in all places. We give thanks that we have a strong, powerful inner voice that guides us in all that we do and gives us needed information constantly.

We give thanks that we can hear this voice and have instant recognition that what we hear is from those in the spiritual realm who want the very best for us.

And so it is.

Peace,

Barbara

New Direction

June 2, 2014

Hi,

I’ve been feeling exhausted lately and haven’t understood why until now.  It seems that I’ve been trying to live a life style that no longer suits me.

I recognized a while ago that I’m finally healing from the impact of a negative event that occurred about five years ago, but I didn’t realize that this healing meant choosing a new path.

The Old Trail
Instead, I hopped right back on the old trail and the so doing of has left me exhausted.  You see, my mind, body and soul don’t want to travel that way anymore.

Warning Signs
Signs that picking up the reins I dropped five years ago and continuing on that particular path wasn’t working have appeared.  I simply didn’t recognize them for what they were: don’t go this way messages.

For example, I quietly handed my torch named educating the young to teachers who are still active in that field; I admitted that my house is too large for me and consumes too much of my time and energy; I gave away clothing because I don’t want to iron anymore; I purchased a microwave because I don’t want to cook anymore; and, I admitted that driving any distance at all leaves me tired and cranky.

New Direction
A new direction is needed; one that honors who I am really; one that allows me to be, do and have what brings me personal peace; and, one that recognizes that I am the age that I am.

I know that something is up for me because, as I mentioned in a previous blog, I purchased new furniture.  In this five year recovery period, I had a desk and a bed, nothing else.

It’s time to know more about this new path.  It’s time to ask the angels for guidance.

Ask the Angels
Angels of all of us,

We give thanks for the newness and freshness of life.  The renewal and restoration of what has been and what is occurs constantly.  We witness this in the seasons and in plant life all the time. Now, we recognize and honor the rejuvenation and restoration that occurs in our own, individual and unique, life.

We realize that rebirth means choosing a new way and letting completely go of what once was.  That way opens for us now.  We see where to place our steps.  We have a strong sense of where our steps will take us: to being, doing and having what we came to this time to experience.

Angels of all of us,

We know that you are with us, that you are guiding, instructing and revealing what we must know to be, do and have all that was meant for us.

We joyfully accept your presence and all you bring to us.  Thank you.

Peace,

Barbara
