What Feeds Our Spirits..



  What feeds your spirit and gives it life? 

                Start putting together some pictures and OTHER things that 
                feed your spirit.  sit down and really give it some thought as to 
                what you really like. start your list with those things that you
                ENJOY THE MOST AND THAT YOU FEEL YOU really want to have in your life. 

                    WHAT GIVES YOU JOY? WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH? WHAT BRINGS A SMILE TO
                    YOUR FACE? WHAT KIND OF WORK WOULD YOU DO IF YOU COULD CHOOSE 
                    ANYTHING? WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES? HOW ABOUT HAPPY MEMORIES? MAKE A 
                    BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE. TRY ADDING SOME MUSIC VIDEOS, MOVIE CLIPS, POEMS,
                    ARTICLES AND OTHER THINGS THAT YOU FEEL ARE A REFLECTION OF YOU AS A
                    UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL.

                          CUT PICTURES OUT OF MAGAZINES  OF THINGS THAT YOU LIKE AND GLUE 
                          THEM TO A LARGE POSTER BOARD AND HANG IT ON YOUR WALL. CUT OUT 
                          WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR LIFE OR WHAT YOU WANT AS WELL. 
                          SURROUND IT WITH OBJECTS AND OTHER THINGS IN YOUR LIFE THAT
                          MAKE YOU SMILE. DRAW, WRITE OR OTHERWISE GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU.

                             Give these things a place where you can see them all the time.

                                       WHAT CAN YOU DO TO BRING THESE THINGS INTO YOUR LIFE?

 

Even if your life has been sad or very difficult, positive things can come out of tragedy and pain. Find those positive things or find that silver lining on that cloud that just went by. Put together a book for your life. Do it for yourself. Help yourself find a way out of the depression, fear, sadness or whatever it is that ails you. In this doing you will find strength inside and new hope. Learn what the things in your life are trying to tell you about yourself. As you discover more and more about yourself and your own spirit and become whole inside it will then be easier to find what you want most in life.

Most of us are searching for love but we don’t know how to love ourselves yet or what real love looks like. This is a journey of discovery and wonder. Try to get excited again. There are so many wonderful possibilities.

I found that life was pretty amazing once I got started and that included a journey of myself. Instead of depending on everyone else to help me feel better about myself, I started to feel good about myself all on my own. Finding that wholeness first with my own spirit has made all the difference in the world. I don’t have to go to others to find my way but I do find that sharing with and loving others helps me find the wholeness within as well. A personal relationship with God and Christ surely does help the most. Sure, I can use help sometimes and I rely on God a great deal but I don’t give others my power or control over my life anymore just because I want them to love or accept me.

These are some of the things that feed my spirit...



Sangre de Cristo mountain range, Westcliffe, Colorado
Sangre de Cristo means "blood of Christ" and these mountains are called so because of the beautiful translucent pink which surrounds them at times.

To be like a kid again...that's me on top of the turtle.

"Turtle buries its thoughts, like eggs, in the sand, and allows the sun to hatch the little ones. This teaches you to develop your ideas before bringing them out in the light. ... Bigger, stronger, and faster are not always the best ways to get to a goal. ...As a power animal, Turtle teaches the need for protection. Although you should find expression for the creative sources within, and allow your thoughts to reach up to 'heavenly' things, it is essential to stay well grounded and to be connected to the power  of the Earth. "

Mary, beloved mother of Christ and such a beautiful example of how to birth Christ in my life and bring Him into this world.  





Nice warm fire... and see that clawfoot bathtub in the background...that fed my spirit on cold winter days.



    Snow diamonds - I once read somewhere that snowflakes are God's thoughts falling gently upon and around us. If so, I have never slept so good and awakened with such wonder, as when snow is falling or has fallen during the night...such peace.

            


Even Los Angeles International Airport, palm trees and warm weather coming out of the snow


Examples of some things that could increase your spirit...

Love, lots of love, and that includes love of self

An ability to express oneself in all ways - physically, emotionally, mentally, creatively, spiritually and in every other way

Respect for self and others

An ability to stand up for yourself, to let others know where you stand and how you are feeling

An ability to align with your own spirit

An ability to find a personal connection with God

An ability to live your life as who you are and not how you think others want you to be

“Beethoven’s 5 Secrets – One Republic (Cello/Orchestral Cover)” by ThePianoGuys.

It seems that science has already proven that love exists as well as fear. Being stuck in emotions which do not come out of love is basically Hell and there seems to be no love in that space. In my experience, I found God in the space of love and sharing that love with Him. I can feel love for myself but without anyone to share it with even that feels kind of empty to me at this moment. God is more than just a vibration of love. He is - and He is our Father as I feel Him. The difficulty for science in proving God exists seems to be because many are not willing to take that extra step and have a relationship with our Creator. So maybe we could heal with the vibration of love alone as science by itself might ask us to do but what does that serve if there is nobody to really share love with in our life. It is the sharing of love with our Creator that heals my body and soul and which gives me life and lets me know that I am more than this physical body alone. His love and the sharing are what show me that I matter. It is the sharing that brings life to my spirit and heals my soul.

**************

Wow. I feel so much stronger in my heart and in my chest. Life has a whole new clarity and color. I hear things more clearly. I see things more clearly. I feel everything more fully. If I thought life was rich before I see that it is truly rich now. This is the result of feeling worthy of love and being loved. God and Christ granted this to me but any kind of love heals and adds a new richness to life. Never forget this about love and especially God’s love for you as a son or daughter of God.

a little bit of wildness in my life...speaks to my own nature and my own heart very much...who needs smooth as glass

Do we not love being on or near the ocean because it rises and falls within our own hearts?









Do we not reach for the stars bcause something calls to us?
