Perfection, the enemy

Dec. 2, 2015

Hi Everyone,
Good Heavens! Perfection, an enemy? How can that be?

I have a note near my desk that says: “My best is never going to be perfect, and that’s okay with me. I release my drive for perfection. I embrace my drive for mastery.”

Many of us have fantastic ideas, ideas that would really benefit the world if we would release them into the world.

We hold back because the representation of the idea—a book, a tool, a song, a painting, a garden, a system, etc.—isn’t perfect.

The Question
The question isn’t: is the idea and its presentation perfect; the question is: have you mastered the idea and how you are presenting it so that others will understand it?

This can be a difficult question to answer. I write. When I give my writing to the world, I have re written it many times; I usually edit three or four proofs before I allow something to be published not because I’m seeking perfection or even excellence, but because I want to make certain that communication between me and thee is the best it can be.

So that I don’t get bogged down into the impossibility of perfection—after all, none of us is Mother/Father God—I involve the angels of all of us from the very first moment the idea appears.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,

We are grateful that we know you and that we know Mother/Father God.  It is with great joy that we accept that the world is a friendly, supportive, encouraging place.

It is, also, with joy and thanksgiving that we accept that all of us are constantly nurtured, supported and protected. We live in a field of infinite possibilities and we know it.

We live in the over flow of all good. From this overflow comes everything we need and everything we seek. We hone our craft. We celebrate our creativity. We communicate easily.

We relax in the acceptance of our givingness and of our mastery. We let go of perfection. We rejoice in who we are really, an aspect, a creation of Mother/Father God.

We know that knowing is more powerful than believing. At this moment, we know that we have mastered our ideas and their presentation to our world.

And so it is.

Peace,
Barbara

Mrs. David Stuart

Nov. 16, 2015

Hi Everyone,
Most of the time, power comes when we choose our self to be the one instead of waiting to be chosen, or waiting to be asked.

When Mrs. David Stuart, the wife of a farmer/steel worker in my growing-up, Appalachian farming community, found out about telephones and decided she wanted one, she went to the phone company.

Someone there told her she had to have a petition with 50 names on it, and then the phone company would string the wire and put in the poles so that she could have a phone.

Someone at the phone company wrote the petition for her. Like most people of that time and place, Mrs. Stuart barely had a sixth grade education.

She came home, and the next day after the men folk went to work, she walked from house to house—there were no two-car families in those days— and got the wives to sign her petition.

No one dared say, “I have to wait and ask permission from my husband.” No woman refused to sign.

Mrs. Stuart got her fifty names and her telephone. When the men folk protested, the phone company only said that fifty people requested phone service, so, of course, they had to give it to them. Done deal. End of story.

Mrs. Stuart did not wait for someone to choose her, to appoint her, to get telephone service to her community. She chose herself.

We can do the same. We can choose our self to be the one to bring newness, or to change a situation or circumstance.

And, we can do this with the help of Mother/Father God and the angels.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,
We are grateful that we know that knowing is more powerful than believing.

We know that Mother/Father God and you angels are with us 24/7, in the rain and in the sunlight. We are never alone and we are never without ideas, information, energy, support, nurturance and protection.

For this, we give thanks.

We see what has to be done; we choose our self to be the doer knowing that all is and will be well.

We give thanks for all our accomplishments and for your support.
And so it is.
Peace,
Barbara

Yielding

July 19, 2015
Hi Everyone,
I’ve spent the last several weeks writing, self-publishing and preparing to promote my fourth book: Paint Your Soul Colors, here’s why, here’s how.

It’s available now on Amazon Kindle Books.com and will be on free promotion July 31 to Aug. 4.

I hadn’t planned to write this particular book. The truth is I had decided to stop writing and self-publishing; there is so little money profit in so doing.

Personal Mission
However, part of my mission is to identify, explain and distribute information about easy-to-do, low-cost techniques that help us heal our self.

Intuitive painting, what Paint Your Soul Colors is about, is not easy, nor is it cheap, but doing this type of painting helps us heal and is doable. So, I wrote the book.

Personal Message
After publishing the book, I got a message from the angels that I want to give to everyone: all of us were given the anointing of being the best we can be, but, in order to claim that anointing, we must yield to it.

Yielding means we must do the work—whatever tasks need to be done for the anointing to come forth.

For me, yielding means the work of writing, publishing and promoting. For you, yielding probably means something else.

Let us thank the angels for this information.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us,
As always, I am so very grateful that I know you exist and that I can come to you for help about anything.

I am equally grateful that you come to me without waiting for me to ask.

I have easy access to information, tools and supplies. I live in an ever-flowing current of abundance and all good. For that I give thanks.

I am grateful for the recent message that explains that the anointing of being the best was given to all and that the key to claiming this anointing is to yield to it.

Yield means we do the work and the actions required to be the best.

I give thanks that I now know this.

I am grateful for the support of the angels in everything I do including yielding.
And so it is.
Peace,
Barbara

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for downloading Put Hand to Plow, get what you want. I deeply appreciate and value your answer to my call to action. Thank you.

Now that you have a copy of the book, it is my hope that you will read it; put the information to use; and gain mightily from so doing.

Let’s ask the angels of all of us for support in accomplishing this.

Angels of All of Us

Angels,

We are so grateful that we know you exist. We give thanks that you give us support and nurturance, ideas and information daily.

We know that you support us in getting what we want. We are grateful that we now have a system for bringing forth the desires of our heart.

We give thanks that guidance on how to use this system, the creative process, effectively, continuously comes to us.

We give thanks for a deeper understanding of universal law.

We are grateful that we are becoming fantastic receivers and fabulous givers.

We take time to celebrate and rejoice in our getting and our giving.

And so it is.

Peace,

Barbara

Alert Systems

March 3, 2015

Hi Everyone,
Layla, my little feral rescue cat, growls like a dog whenever a stranger enters the neighborhood. Usually, the stranger is someone hanging advertisement on door knobs.

As the stranger gets closer to this house, her growls intensify. I always pay attention. In this day and age, I would be a fool not to.

If the person is in anyway evil and they enter the yard, my other cats will run up to me growling like dogs, get my attention, and then go hide.

I’ve learned to go on red alert when this happens. My cats are never wrong.

Human Alert System
Just as God gave cats and other animals a way to know when no-good was lurking, we have a similar system

Unless we have squashed it or ignored it, each of us knows when something false, or something with an evil intent, is about.

 Reaction
We react differently to this alert. Most of the time, we say nothing and quietly remove our self from the situation; sometimes, we do what my cats do, we hide. However, there always comes a time when we have no choice but to confront whatever evil is facing us.

It is difficult to know the right thing to do.

Fighting Back
Ignoring something can give it the time to grow and become much more dangerous. Ignoring something can, also, cause it to die. Hiding can only give so much protection for so long. Confronting can destroy us unless we are skilled in all the different ways, including verbal ways, of defying evil.

Responding to evil requires much grace, training and should only be done if one is strongly rooted in spiritual practice. One should never confront evil without first calling in the angels and Archangel Michael. His mighty sword and his blue light of protection are needed now.

Angels of All of Us
Angels of all of us and the Archangel Michael,

We give thanks for your presence. We rejoice as we feel your presence and know that you are with us always.

We give thanks that we are never alone, never without ideas, information, energy, support and nurturance.  It is so great to have you with us.

Archangel Michael, if you would bathe us in the blue light of your protection and surround us with it always, we would be most grateful. Thank you.

We ask that our individual systems for detecting evil be strengthen. Whatever signal this system gives out that is unique to us, we ask to recognize it now.  We want to know loudly and clearly whenever something false, something no-good is in our environment.

Our environment includes the entire planet Earth. We are no longer separate groups or individuals but connected via all kinds of electronic devices. For this we give thanks.  Now, we don’t have to confront what will destroy us alone, but as a united group.

Angels of all of us,
We ask that not only do we instantly recognize that which is false and that which wishes to do harm, but that we loudly and clearly be given direction on how to react to it. Exactly what do we do that will preserve peace, stability, beauty, joy, prosperity, health and strong, loving individuals? We are open to your guidance. Thank you.

Angels of all of us and Archangel Michael as well as all the other heavenly host who love us and want only the very best for us, we thank you for your presence. We thank you for making yourself known to us. We thank you for your guidance and protection.

We are most grateful.
And so it is.

Peace,

Barbara

Wonderful!

Oct. 9, 2014

Hi everyone,

I just blogged about a new tool, My Day Described found on my other blog site. Using this tool has brought much good into my life.  Please read about it and use it.

As you know, I’ve been working on a new book that I wanted to have ready for all of you by October 15, 2014.  That’s not going to happen.  Spirit gave me new information so my new publication date is December 15.

I am positive that adding this new information and making the changes Spirit has suggested will make the book more helpful to all of you.  So, I am grateful.

At the moment, I feel a bit overwhelmed.  The above is all wonderful, and I am truly grateful.  The other amazing thing is I was called back to work after a very short lay-off.  Again, I am truly grateful.

I am concentrating on Sally’s words, “God knows best what we need.” However, overwhelm means it’s time to ask the angels for help.

Angels of All of Us

Angels,

I am truly grateful for the tool called My Day Described.  I am thankful for the many blessings using this tool has brought into my life.  I am grateful that I live in a nation that allows me to explore, to discover new ways of being and to add newness to my life.  All of these are great blessings for which I give thanks.

I know that I now receive time management information and energy, organizational information and energy and anything else needed to manage my life in effective ways.  All of this happens with ease and grace.

The energy of newness, restoration, rejuvenation, and recreation flows into my life.  I willingly and easily receive the tools sent by Spirit that are useful in creating protection, prosperity, relationships, health and joy.  I give thanks that Spirit sends what I need; that Spirit recognizes and honors my preferences.

Spirit know that I prefer to live in abundance, happiness, peace, health and in expansion of my gifts, talents and abilities.

I give thanks.

And so it is.

Peace,

Barbara

Self-love

Sept. 10, 2014

Hi,

This is one amazing week.  I learned about Self-love.

It was revelation to realize how very necessary this kind of love is to becoming a Master of Truth Recognition and to world peace.

I love me, You love you 

I love me, you love you because if we don’t love our Self, we won’t:

  • Treat our Self well, nor treat others well
  • Demand the best for our Self, nor give the best to others
  • Forgive our Self, nor forgive others
  • Act in our own best interest, nor act in the best interest of others
  • Recognize our truth, nor recognize the truth of others

Doing the above helps quiet the inner turmoil that is the cause of the outer turmoil which often shows up as war.

50 Ways

The easiest way to Self-Love is to make a list of 50 things that show how much you care for you, and then do them.

On this list:

  • include care-of-the-body tasks such as ‘I floss my teeth daily’, and ‘I eat the food that support the fantastic health, vibrancy and energy of my body, mind and emotions’
  • include care-of-the-soul tasks such as ‘I meditate daily’, and ‘I gave thanks for my many blessings daily’
  • include care-of-the-mind tasks such as ‘I use language that inspires and motivates me’, and ‘I study what uplifts and broadens me’
  • include care-of-the-emotions tasks such as ‘I forgive my Self’, and ‘I forgive others’
  • include opulent tasks such as always having living spaces clean and well-organized, clothes that are perfect for who you are and what you do.

How to Speak Self-Love

Most important is to speak self-love:

  • “I eat this because I love me”
  • “I drink this because I love me”
  • “I drive this way because I love me”
  • “I do this work because I love me”, etc.

Amazing Result

I’m totally amazed that these statements changed my choices for the better.

I effortlessly drove past fast food places. I easily ate the correct amounts of food. I calmly spoke with people who usually cause me much stress.

For most of us, this idea of self-love is so new and so radical, we must ask the angels for help.

Ask the Angels

Angels of all of us,

I’m so grateful that you’ve helped me make the idea of Self-love real. I’m grateful for my list of 50 ways to show my love of self.

I know that you, the angels of all of us, now help each of us make a similar list. We make this list with ease. Effortlessly, we do this list.

As the angels work with us, we experience self-love and its positive effects in our life and the life of others.

We are so grateful to feel this love radiate within us and then outward, blessing all who come in contact with us, erasing the inner turmoil in each and bringing peace to all.

Angels of all of us,

Thanks for being with us. Thanks for making us aware of your presence. Thanks for your guidance, support and nurturance.  Thanks for love of Self.

Peace,

Barbara
