Last week we talked about the choice between staying connected to God’s peace within or indulging in the chaotic distractions of our outer world. I invited you to join me in a one-week challenge to become aware of your options and make a decision that serves your highest state of Being so you can maintain more joy in your life. How did you do?

I have to be honest and completely transparent about the last week for me – it was pretty up and down. My sister-in-law is in the hospital and I got completely riled up at the incompetency of the doctor who was treating her. Fortunately she was transferred to a different facility with higher quality care where she was diagnosed accurately and is receiving the meds she requires.

But until that happened it was a roller coaster of anger, fear and prayers. Boy did amnesia set in several times around staying in God’s peace!! Geeeez Louise!

I found myself getting extremely angry and emotional, blaming and judging the doctor. All stemming from my huge fear that his misdiagnosis and blunders might lead to losing my sister-in-law whom I love deeply – she’s been a big part of my life since I was 16.

Have you ever been in a situation like this? Where you feel helpless and you know your emotions are not contributing to a positive outcome but you are gripped by fear?

What do you do to turn a situation like this around?

Fortunately I caught myself and realized my fears and complaining about her poor care were not helping her get well or being a support to my brother. And the truth is, the doctors incompetency was not to be ignored, and it was reported; however, THE KEY was not to indulge in the situation – not to continue to put my attention on what was going wrong.

With those realizations I was able to turn my energy around to prayers of gratitude, seeing God’s healing, loving light flood her body bringing optimum health to every cell.

What I learned:

We all suffer from fear, from guilt, from challenges, from bad stuff happening – it’s part of being human. The thing is, those emotions are all low level and will attract more of the same so we have to ask ourselves, “Do I want more of this?” and if the answer is no, we make a choice IN THAT MOMENT to use our beautiful minds to turn the titanic around with a higher vibratory thought, a life generating thought.

This is our opportunity to build upon last week’s principle of “The One”, “The All” understanding as above, so below.

This week we look at the principle of Vibration. Everything vibrates. Our emotions are a good indicator of where we are vibrating. Fear, irritation and anger are all low vibrations. With our conscious awareness we can influence our emotions and increase our vibration creating different results. Now that’s pretty cool and empowering, isn’t it?

Since science has proven that what we attract is based on our vibration – it’s helpful to be aware of our thoughts and emotions – are they supporting a high vibration or a low vibration? If we want to attract better things into our life like more love, greater health, more success and prosperity and FUN times all we have to do is turn our attention vertically and open wide to God’s Infinite Love and wisdom.

When I was in Egypt I pressed my body and face against a hieroglyph on a wall in the Temple of Isis where they used to do high ceremonies.

I asked for a message.

What I instantly heard was so simple, so powerful, “Be grateful to God for EVERYTHING and all will work out well.”

Of course...GRATITUDE – one of the highest vibrations!!! Sometimes things are so simple we don’t see it especially if we have a pattern of struggle and lack. But the good news is, it really is that simple.

Try it now – name one thing you are grateful for and notice what shifts in your mind and body. Are you feeling more peaceful? If you aren’t moving towards a peaceful place continue a mantra of what you are grateful for until you feel calm within.

Now you have a very easy plan. When challenge, fear and guilt start to creep into your mind, make choices that support not only your highest good but everyone around you too. Look up, speak gratitude and fill up with the vibration of God’s Love. Wow what you will attract!! Sparkle Sister, life is about to get a whole lot easier! Yayyyyy!!!
