Hunger, poverty, war, terrorism… Are a human complication. In which they need human intervention. Not just a governmental one. You can help be apart of the solution by just being considerate of others. Lending a helping hand and reframe from passing judgement can do more than you think. Giving others hope and strength that they can raise above what holds them down, is immensely powerful.

Control

I watch people give away their personal power all too often. Allowing others to provoke them into reactive emotions such as, anger, sadness, self pity, and jealousy. This is giving that person your power. They incite feelings within you, taking control of your emotional state. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about yourself. No matter who that person is to you. Remember your worth and that you are always loved, especially when it doesn’t always feel that way.

Much Love!

Counting Stars

by One Republic

Written by Ryan Tedder, the band’s frontman and songwriter for other pop stars, he was quoted as saying “I felt a responsibility to actually write and sing about things that have a level of human gravity to them” when it comes to the song’s lyrics.

Lately, I’ve been, I’ve been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I’ve been, I’ve been praying hard,
Said, no more counting dollars
We’ll be counting stars, yeah we’ll be counting stars

I really love this song! What spoke to me the most were the lyrics. This is a song I can get down to and actually feel inspired by. Do not get me wrong, I also can get down (well more like grind on a “surfboard”) to Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love” but all that inspires me to do is get drunk and do naughty things (naughty things aren’t always a bad thing just saying).

The chorus really got to me, I have also been dreaming of more. Dreaming of what more I can contribute to this world. I want to share this gift of illumination with all who want it. Praying to find a way to ignite the spark or to fan the flame to become brighter, in others. I took some time off from this blog because I began to manifest my dream, by teaching others that they too have been gifted. We all have that light that shines inside of us! Wasting time on such mundane a thing as money while there are wonders of the world to be discovered. No, thanks. I will continue to provide the necessary amount of attention to have a comfortable living environment, but no longer will I measure my success by the amount of wealth I have accumulated over my lifetime. 

I feel something so right
Doing the wrong thing
I feel something so wrong
Doing the right thing
I could lie, couldn’t I, could lie
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive 
This section of the second verse is brilliant! The lies we tell ourselves when we make choices that cause damage to our mind, body and/or soul, may be true in the moment. Given time the truth of the action/inaction will be revealed. I have tested this over and over, the lies I have told myself still turn out to be just that lies…
What lies are you telling yourself?
Just some food for thought,
Much Love,
Kim

Joyous and Free

As I am forced to see the outcome of others perceived righteous indignation on small and large scales. I find myself acting with a renewed sense of purpose. I will be Joyous and Free.
Let me start by examining my words. I’ve inserted definitions of the words I’m using to describe a state of being, I desire.
World English Dictionary

joyous (ˈdʒɔɪəs)
— adj
1.having a happy nature or mood
2.joyful

joy (dʒɔɪ)
— n
1.a deep feeling or condition of happiness or contentment
2.something causing such a feeling; a source of happiness
3.an outward show of pleasure or delight; rejoicing

free (friː)
— adj (and foll by from ) , freer , freest
1.able to act at will; not under compulsion or restraint
2.a.having personal rights or liberty; not enslaved or confined
b. ( as noun ): land of the free
3.not subject (to) or restricted (by some regulation, constraint, etc); exempt: a free market ; free from pain
4.(of a country, etc) autonomous or independent
5.exempt from external direction or restriction; not forced or induced: free will

I think I’ll take two number 1’s and a number 5 please. Can you super-size that?!

· How does one become Joyous and Free?
I shall strive to be of a happy nature, with deep feelings of true happiness. While living in a condition of contentment. Released from the attachment of external direction or restriction of another’s will

My first act towards this goal – I refuse to be pushed or provoke into a state of aggression/ depression for someone else’s agenda. This is supported by my God given right of free will. Thus, provides me the choice to take action and not react to blatant acts of hostility. I choose to turn the other cheek. My action will be to turn it over to God.

Romans 12:19-21
12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

· Is it possible to be Joyous and Free all the time?
I realize that I am a Human Being designed by God, in God’s likeness, but I am not God in wholeness. I take my will back from God often. As, I grow during my journey I am quicker to recognize my slip and correct it much sooner than ever before. As in The Lord’s Prayer “ Thy will be done”. The more I model my ways in this light, the more often I will experience joy and freedom.

True Power

Word…

Spoken, written, or thought, words are the most powerful tool a human being has.

Being created in God’s likeness we can wield word giving them intent and power. Along with free will we have the CHOICE you use them for positive or negative purposes.
For example:
Words were used by God himself to create life itself. (Genesis 1:1- 1:31)(NIV)

The Beginning

1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day…

As humans we use words to create a reality .

“I love you” is a devotion of the strength of your feelings to another.

“I hate you” is also a declaration of the strength of emotion a person feels towards another.
Both hold a incredibly strong charge.

There are millions of variations of the words. They all hold power. Remember when someone has use a positive or negative combination of these words towards you. The feelings they called forth.

You have the power to cause bliss or devastation. “Remember, with great power, comes great responsibility” said by Uncle Ben to Peter Parker in Spiderman, originally quoted from Voltaire.

Acceptance

During my work on judgements, I have come to this place. I am at peace with this reality. I invite you to join me in finding your truth.

I am me. I am also God, as is everyone and everything. I am a work of God’s art, as is everyone and everything. I am perfection, as is everyone and everything. I am an expression of God as a Goddess. The Qualities unique to this human suit are no better and no worse than anyone else’s. We are all God. What humanity could consider as a flaw or attribute were given to me as a gift from God. I strive to show the utmost respect to all of God’s work including myself.

Love and Light,
Kimberley

Fear…

Fear
noun 1. a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid …

All my life I have walked in fear. Fear of disappointing people I looked up to. Fear of people leaving me. Fear of the unknown… The list went on and on.

Every action I took had a hint of fear attached to it. Will this turn out the way I hope? or what happens if I fail at this? Will they still like/love me if I don’t get this just right.

This incredibly strong emotion of fear took hold of me at every turn. So, I developed ways to cope the best I could in that moment. Instead of being timid, I would become overly aggressive. I built walls around me so strong I could get through anything in the moment. I would distance myself emotionally from most people so not to be hurt. I survived many of intense moments using these tools.
They did their job and served a purpose. Everything has it’s time and place. When these defensive tools seemed to fail me because they are no longer the most appropriate tool for the job. Imagine using a sledge hammer when a screw driver is called for, it just becomes a mess and the desired results are impossible to attain.

So, like a tape deck my coping skills became obsolete. This lead to some moments of utter despair and unnecessary drama that lasted about 20 something years… Don’t get me wrong I’ve had some miracles occur in that time period I just couldn’t see them at that time.

It is as Shakespeare penned in Hamlet ” Let Hercules himself do what he may,
The cat will mew and dog will have his day.” The day came when I realized life continues and is ever evolving and so must I. Through speaking to many and reading about others J.O.I (journey of Illumination) I found that I am not so unique. My first step into this journey was to allow my mind to open and keep my judgements at bay.( Btw I’m still actively work on the judgement thing, bad habits and all that…)

I have told many others including my children, there is nothing to fear except fear itself.( I’m not sure if any of them believed that since the person whom told them that was crippled with fear… ) Which is only half true, there is nothing to fear if you have Faith.

I was blessed to have a healing session with a beautiful being. When, I spoke of my fear to her she told me to take a deep breathe and sit with my fear. I imagined sitting in a comfy winged chair and invited Fear to sit on my lap. Weird I know but I went with it. It was hesitant at first then run to me with its arms opened and jump on my lap. My fear was a child alone with no one to care for it. I asked it what did it need to feel safe and a flash of basic needs like food, water, shelter and companionship came to me. A sense of tranquility washed over me. I knew in that moment, that I am fully capable of providing the bare necessities . I promised never to leave the child alone and always to honor it.
