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!

The Right Thing

iampresenceYou will know exactly the right thing to do at the right moment and you will do it!

The world is full of signs and symbols to guide you to your destiny.

Watch the beautiful scenery for we may not pass this way again.

Let us bow our heads in silent praise and gratitude to the Mighty I AM Presence which is lifting the Hearts and illumining the minds of mankind.

The most important activities of the Earth are the Inner and outer changes that need to be brought about for humanity’s advancement.

The Unlimited Force of the Cosmic Christ Light deals with darkness and no words can portray the Majesty, Power, and Victory of the Presence of the Infinite I AM. So, there shall be no doubt or fear.

Once the humanity of Earth has the God Understanding of the Eternal Perfection of the Divine Plan, it will do more to purify the chaos of the outer world than any other thing We know.

Soul Mates Graphic

Twin Rays [Source]

The Truth concerning the Twin Rays is that Its Mighty Wisdom and Power can be utilized to realize that there is No Individualization of God at Cosmic Levels in the Fullness of the Mighty I AM Presence until your Twin Ray has made the Ascension. Earthly choice has nothing whatsoever to do with it. Each Ray must, by Conscious Understanding and the use of the Great Command, purify, perfect, and illumine all the human creation by which it has surrounded itself. It then becomes the Ascended Master who forever has Conscious Dominion over the Earth and all that is therein.

When both Rays have made the Ascension, They are of the same state of Purity, Freedom, and Perfect Dominion. The Two are then able to work at Cosmic Levels. There, They can project great Cosmic Rays of Love, Light and Wisdom, focusing them with such Power, They create and control Cosmic Activities and reveal the Great Glory of the Mighty I AM Presence.

The Supreme Decree of Love Everlasting

By the Command of the Mighty I AM Presence, I join these Twin Rays of the Eternal Flame of Life in Supreme Love, Light, and Perfection.

Fact

What glories and marvels humanity could and would experience if it would only reach up consciously and sincerely to the Inner Light and the individuals open their Hearts and feelings to the Mighty Magic Presence of the I AM.

Divine Law

When one speaks in terms of Universal Truth, there is no such thing in Infinite Creation as a ‘miracle’, for what the world calls miracles are only the operation of Divine Law, which, because of Its very nature of Perfection, sets aside all humanly established laws of limitation. It is to bring the Full Understanding of the operation of Divine Law into the minds of the children of Earth that the Ascended Masters have labored in the past and for which they still do labor unceasingly with the inhabitants of this planet.

The hour is rapidly approaching when humanity must awaken to the All-Encompassing Inner Presence of God acting through the individual.

The Light of God never fails!

Wisdom is of no benefit to anyone unless it is used, and through that use, the individual manifests Perfection, so he or she can live above every limitation.

1EnergyShifts_122514Within the very Light which animates the physical body exists an Intelligence and Power that can and will carry out perfectly whatever the mind directs, when Harmony is maintained and all direction is constructive.

Love, Wisdom, and Power are the primal attributes which Life uses to build a Permanent Creation, and when mankind ceases its self-created discord, all Life around it and in Nature will express Permanent Perfection!

A Vision for Cooperation

We picture a world where we have completely revamped the entire structure of our culture so that competition (except in sporting events) is a thing of the past; where no man, woman, or child is pitted against another in order to gather unto themselves the basic needs of life; and where – since there is such abundance and such an equitable system of distribution for our goods and services – all people everywhere are simply being given everything they need to survive, sustain and enjoy their lives to the fullest.

It is in this environment of non-competition and non-capitalism that we have learned to cooperate with one another, to help one another, and to support one another in fulfilling the dreams and desires each of us carried with us when we came to this beautiful, abundant Earth.

“I relax and cast aside all mental burdens, allowing God to express through me His perfect love, peace, and wisdom.” ~  Paramahansa Yogananda

http://www.yogananda-srf.org/affirmations.aspx#.V4bQ27grLIU

How to Practice Affirmations

  1. Choose an affirmation for your particular need.
  2. Sit with spine erect.
  3. Close your eyes and gently focus your gaze and concentrate at the point between the eyebrows.
  4. Then, Paramahansaji said, “take a deep breath and exhale it, three times. Relax the body and keep it motionless….
  5. Cast away anxiety, distrust, and worry….
  6. Repeat all of the affirmation, first loudly, then softly and more slowly, until your voice becomes a whisper.
  7. Then gradually affirm it mentally only, without moving the tongue or the lips, until you feel that you have attained deep, unbroken concentration — not unconsciousness, but a profound continuity of uninterrupted thought.
  8. If you continue with your mental affirmation, and go still deeper, you will feel a sense of increasing joy and peace.”
