A Vision for Building a Light Body

1EnergyShifts_122514We see a world where people everywhere, in every land, in every walk of life, have realized that there is a process of evolution proceeding in humankind, and that this process involves us growing a soul – or, as it is sometimes called, building a light body.

We see humanity’s focus on education now directed away from the mundane political, historical, and economic topics, and moved toward those endeavors which enhance the possibilities for our soul’s growth – endeavors such as meditation, right thinking, proper prayer, intention making, community making, self-empowerment, Qigong, Tai Chi, yoga, pranic breathing, pranic eating, astrology, tarot, daily exercise and more. Likewise, we see certain books being especially helpful. Books such as: I Ching, A Course in Miracles, The Way of Mastery, Journey Beyond Words, The Code: 10 Intentions for a Better World, The Fifth Agreement, Oneness, The Impersonal Life, The Way Out, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, The Twelfth Insight, The I AM Discourses, books by Gregg Braden, Abraham/Hicks, Barbara Marciniak, Deepak Chopra, Rasha, James Redfield, Eckhart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Ken Carey, Neale Donald Walsch, Mike Dooley, Byron Katie, Kryon, David Wilcock, Carlos Casteneda and more.

Accordingly, we see ourselves living in a world where our priorities have shifted en masse, whereby we now know that our essence is multidimensional and that the next rung on our evolutionary ladder brings us into a conscious awareness of God and the knowing that we are all connected to each other. With such an awareness, our Spirit is freed to explore, experience, and evolve into lighter states of being, higher states of joy, sacred states of love.

Patience

jcaura-redartToday, I told my daughter that she and her brother and their children should give me some Patience for Mother’s Day. Perhaps, they could put it in a box or a bottle so I can keep it around to sprinkle on my shoulders when I need it.  We laughed.  But it is not funny because all my life I have had difficulties with patience with situations and people. In email, I received this from http://www.visionalignmentproject.com

The Vision Alignment Project

A Vision for Patience

We envision ourselves living in a world where the speediness of life has gone away; where the pushiness on the part of those who are in a hurry has vanished and been replaced by a calm, caring for their fellow travelers; and where we, the people, have learned to wait for the fruits of life to ripen, the wines of good character to age, the metals of impeccable will to be forged, the souls within us to rise, and the Earth to ascend in perfect, divine timing.

For it is with patience that all things mature, including Mother Earth Herself. And we, as having become responsible stewards for Her, find ourselves waiting in wondrous anticipation for Her to finish Her present cycle of growth so that we can take our next step, together, as One.

Of course, I align with this. But will it make me more patient with myself, others, and situations I am waiting to manifest?

Having completed my 6-year journey to my Doctorate in Business Administration Marketing, I have been submitting employment applications. An interview, last week, opened possibilities for me to earn a six-figure income. The waiting is painful, though. I love what the message above says about waiting “for the fruits of life to ripen, the wines of good character to age, the metals of impeccable will to be forged, the souls within us to rise, and the Earth to ascend in perfect, divine timing.”

Divine timing sounds simple.  Yet, my mind anxiously awaits a response from the interviewer.  I am eager to learn if I am the frontrunner in this job game.  Another opportunity that I applied for would take me two hours away from where I presently reside, which is only 15 minutes from my father who turns 98 on May 7.  If I am the chosen one for this position as Director of Marketing for a college, would I be willing to travel that far away from my elderly father?

Even more intriguing is an application that I put in this morning to work at a philanthropic organization in North Carolina.  Am I willing to relocate to make six-figures there?

The ultimate question is “Do I want a job?”  Since I have not had a formal job since 1996, because I own a for-profit corporation and operate a non-profit organization neither of which pays my bills, I am certain that six-figures will be very attractive at this stage of the game.  After all, isn’t that why I pursued a doctorate?

Meanwhile, I must admit that I had the patience to get a “B” in Statistics, a course that tested my patience to the nth degree.  I had the patience to accumulate data from 20 study participants, through interviews, transcription, and data analysis and reporting. So, I suppose I can say that I do have a small amount of patience.  But the waiting to hear from interviewers is still painful.

Consequently, I sit here blogging my pain and anxiety, trusting that the answer will arrive just when I need it and it will be positive and in divine order!

Transformation

jcaura-redart Change is the fluidity of life. Transformation is at the core of our existence. We might fight it, avoid it, ignore it, or be unconscious of it. But our transformation is always happening even if we cannot see it. Molecules are ever-moving. When we don’t fight it, welcome it, embrace it, and consciously engage in transformation, we can soar to unexpected heights of existence.

The purpose of the brain is to receive impulses from the Universal Mind. The nature of the Universe is abundance. Imagine summoning to your brain and life experience all that you need, all good experiences, all protection, joy, happiness, and satisfaction.

Be the keeper of your storehouse. Mjcaura-redfrescootivate yourself to succeed in every endeavor. See your accomplishments and the fulfillments of your goal. Recognize that the Universe gives you everything you need and desire.

Your conscious call to the Universe to lift you up where you belong is always being answered. You must be listening and observing how things are changing in your favor.  Nothing happens without thought. Be in control of yours. Manipulate them to create all the desires of your heart. ~ Dr. Diva JC

Home

After one month on vacation in Barbados, I must say being home is a delight. I really enjoyed where I lived in Payne’s Bay, St. James, in the Secret Cottage, where I awakened to a fantastic view each morning and watched a magnificent sunset every evening. I slept so well with the breeze coming through the two windows in my room. I cooked fresh fish on many days. I swam in the Caribbean Sea, met many lovely people from the U.K. and the U.S., and took in polo for the first time.

The most beautiful place I saw in Barbados was Bathsheba on the Atlantic coast.

Absolutely beautiful scenery in Bathsheba!

Dover Beach was lovely too, on the southern coast. I enjoyed swimming and had breakfast at a family restaurant, Bliss, where I spent the entire morning.

31 days later, I’m back in beautiful South Florida, where I always return, no matter where I travel in the world.

Breakthrough

Today, I contemplate three words: right, wright, and write.

Right means good, true, correct.

A wright is a maker or builder.

I will write about the breakthrough I had staying right on course being the wright of my life.

I am making my life liveable in the right way and I am fortunate to be able to write about it, here, where perhaps one other person will get what I mean. I am fulfilling my right purpose by being the wright of my existence and writing about it.

Breakthroughs

  1. Today, I learned that my doctoral dissertation was approved.
  2. It is my second son’s birthday.
  3. I completed the FDACS statement for the non-profit.
  4. I contacted the water company about a stormwater bill.
  5. I received a healthy supply of prophylactics and lube.
  6. I discovered a lovely neighborhood with gorgeous banyan trees.
  7. I wrote this blog.

The day is still young.

 

A New Year

Patience?
Tolerance?
Compromise?

No, no, no.

I will not be patient with people who are whiny, needy, unconscious, and stupid.
I will not tolerate people who are thoughtless, overbearing, biased, and trifling.
I will not compromise my comfort, health, finances, or happiness to please others.

This is a New Year! I have a new outlook, a new perspective. People can only hassle you if you let them and, this year, I refuse to LET THEM hassle me.

I will live my life according to my wishes. I will enjoy every moment. I will not do anything I do not want to do just to make someone else happy. Yes, I care about people but I put ME first in every single situation. I have paid the price to choose this stance and I am going to keep this promise to ME.

It’s my turn. It’s ME TIME!

A New Year!

Change

From moment to moment life changes. Change is the only constant. How we move through the changes we experience forms our opinions and reactions. For example, just this week, my life changed when I flew from West Palm Beach to Atlanta.

Here’s what the weather looked like 2 hours later in Atlanta.

Here’s what the weather looked like the very next day.

Of course, the weather effects our mood. Needless to say, when the sun is shining and the sky is blue it’s easier to feel bright and shiny.

What’s Happening

This past weekend, I moved yet another time.  This is my 9th roommate, since February 2013. That’s when I moved from Oakland Park to Hollywood, Florida, where I lived for six months with Marika (1). In September, I moved to Delray Beach with Kat (2). On December 15, I moved to Atlanta with my daughter Mimi (3). I stayed there until July 2015, when I moved with Brad (4) in his rented house. By October 1, 2015, I moved with my brother Carlton (5) in West Palm Beach.20160903_170513

20160901_075945

20160911_125724In December 2015, I moved to my father’s house (6) for one month. Then, on January 15, 2016, I moved to Sunrise, Florida, with my friend Sherry (7). I stayed there for 8 months, until August 13, when I moved, again. I went to Atlanta for two weeks and, when I returned , I moved to Boynton Beach with Michelle (8). I stayed there from September 3 until November 27, when I moved to Delray Beach with Sylvie (9).

Most of all, I must be appreciative of having nine people who cared enough about me to share their home with me.  Although I miss having my own place, I have had a wonderful time sharing ideas and stories with my roommates. Once I complete my doctorate in 2017, I will earn enough as an adjunct professor of Speech and Business to get my own place.  Until then, I’m grateful for a roof over my head and a clean, comfortable bed to sleep in. Having a nice bathroom and kitchen is so important.  Life is grand when you have what you need and good people to share it with.

Write Your Life

Today, in response to a blog on The Loneliness of the SpinsterI posted the following:

In defense of antiquated terms, I wrote this blog in April 2016: https://divineconnectionchurch.wordpress.com/2014/04

1jc-united-state-of-women-profile-pledgeI am a soon-to-be 69-year-old mother of two, grandmother of five, and great grandmother of three, who is just completing a doctorate in business administration/marketing with the plan of being a professor for the duration of my life, after having toured 19 countries as a jazz vocalist. In addition, I am divorced four times over. My motto was and still is “You cheat. You hit. I’m gone.”

Moreover, I am a woman of color surrounded by a community of people of color who would be destitute if it were not for their good government job, which may come to a screeching halt in light of the plans of the President-elect. I have lived in singular bliss since 2000, and loneliness has only reared its evil head on a very few occasions. I cherish silence and solitude which afford me time to hear myself think.

Hannah, I do believe that people in loveless relationships are far lonelier than I have been in my singular state. Of course, I get to talk to my children regularly. However, they reside in other states and seeing them is not a regular occurrence. All of that being revealed, I am a crone, a mid-life spinster-of-sorts who has fashioned my future through education. As I told one of my Speech Communications students just last week, “Always give yourself the benefit of the doubt. Never let what others think you should do with your life prevail over your own wishes for you.”

Marriage and parenthood are overrated, in my opinion, especially bad marriages that subsist for the benefit of children who will leave the nest and generally leave mother to care for a dominant father. That is not the scenario for all marriages. However, it is a very lonely scenario. My advice to young women who have not fallen into the love-and-marriage cipher is to live the best life that you can for YOU! Period.

Your destiny is written by your higher self. Your soul records every single wish and desire and, if living single is your choice, no one should be able to dictate anything different to you. Regarding the glass ceiling for single, queer women (including those of color), the option of forming your own company to provide a product or service is always there, whether you continue to teach or not.

Think about forming a non-profit corporation to support women in their careers based upon the complaints you lay out in your essay. You may find a new path to tread that can bring light to hundreds, if not thousands of women around the world!
