{Blog: Waking Up~ on purpose} Who are WE?

Who are WE?

I saw this and I thought of all our emotional challenges. Do we ‘suffer’ from feeling inadequate? Do we ‘suffer’ from feeling unworthy? Do we ‘suffer’ because we are stubborn or insecure?

All of these challenges are validated through our emotional filters, and those filters are unique for everyone.

Do they FEEL real, yes!
Are they REAL, yes, but only for you!

Do they validate you? NO
Do they empower you? NO

These challenges we suffer from are generated as truth when we nourish them by believing them.

To heal is to recognize we can not serve two masters. One master is the master of this physical earth, another is the master of our divine nature.

I am confident, we are spiritual beings FIRST having an earthly experience. We either put faith in our physical experience because it feels tangible, OR we put faith in our divine nature because we really KNOW who we are.

For me, to know who we are outside of any trauma is to KNOW our inherited DNA, that of a beautiful, illuminated, SOUL, filled with divine intelligence, love, joy, kindness, acceptance, and peace.

I see these ‘traumas’ as a gift, given to me so I may learn how to navigate through discernment and the Atonement to come out even better, living at the highest vibration of love and joy for me.

To hang onto these ‘traumas’ is to say, we are physical beings first, hoping to become a spiritual being.

Whichever view you resonate with is part of your path of life. Whichever master you serve, whatever vibration you choose to live within, remains up to you!

No one keeps you there but yourself!

I fully agree others may make it easier for you to feel trapped

OR

make it harder to connect to your spiritual roots.

Either way, please recognize the first step to healing is to ultimately KNOW it’s up to you.

I posted this on Facebook on the same day this blog post was published. I felt drawn to post it here for those not on Fb. If you've seen this twice, this is why.

{New Blog} The Language of Manifesting

What you think about, you bring about!
 
This has been a saying I heard many years ago from my dear friend, Pam.
 
What does it mean? Today I’ll give you a couple of my most difficult situations I practiced first hand on.
 
I was exercising one beautiful spring morning on my treadmill. My daughter was visiting and she was just finishing breakfast when a knock was heard at my door. She went to open it and a man asked if I was home. She tried to tell him I was not available but he was insistent. My daughter finally came and got me and I went to the door. Nice man, a man I knew from a previous job that I had left over three years ago. I had no reason to be alarmed, as he came to ask me a couple of questions on a file I had worked on years ago. I agreed to go to lunch and tell him what I remembered. I quickly learned, the lunch was an attack. Apparently, the mortgage companies involved with this file were not playing nice and they wanted me to be responsible. What the hell? No way, was I going to take the fall for something I was not involved in.  I was the planned pawn in their blame game.
 
I won’t go into the horifying details but I will tell you the highlights to get my point across.
 
Well, because I said no to being their pawn, I was served papers. These papers stated, I was to go down to the jail and be booked on my own free will, IF I choose not to do that, I would be arrested. Right there, something is really wrong, right! My husband is freaking out but I felt calm. I knew I had not done anything wrong so what could possibly happen?
 
Because of this event, I was forced to get an attorney. I met with this attorney only 4 times, going over the details of what I was being accused me of. Attorney’s are intimidating! As I regained my voice and confidence, I began recognizing how many parts of the file had conveniently dissappeared. Which after a week, I shared my concern with my attorney. He told me he had a plan and to meet again next week. I’ll admit, I was getting a bit panicky. My attorney told me upfront that IF I was found guilty I could spend upto three years in Federal prison. WHAT THE HELL? WHAT WAS HAPPENING? I seriously did not know what was happening but I knew I felt angry. I was so mad and hurt that I was so easily thrown under the bus of blame. Angry at a company that I believed in! Spouting how much they support their employees, like family, they said. I was dumb enough and naive enough to believe them. I felt so stupid!
 
When I met with my attorney this next time he said I was going to tell the District Attorney my side, and go through the evidence they had ‘against’ me…… *** ok, I’ll finish up my story with what happened in a minute.
 
What I think about, I bring about! Yes, this kept going through my head. Fear was a huge factor but I had to tame it during the most scarey time in my life. I had to figure out a way to release the fear!
 
You see, the more I feared going to prison, my thoughts were consumed with fighting, consumed with being right. So what I thought about would bring more fighting, more fear, more proving I was right and they were wrong. Ugly situation, right?
 
When bad things happen the language of manifesting is ALLOWING, ACCEPTING, and LOVE. I know it sounds backwards – thus, why I used this photo. But I promise you, the language of manifesting is powerful! Now let’s see the difference on how this language would actually grant me and generate peace for me.
 
I took my anger and turned it around to being supportive. What I thought about is how can I help them figure this problem out. IF I had to go to prison, then I accepted that it would serve my highest good, in some way. I held onto trusting the Universe to serve my highest good, whatever that meant and wherever that led me. I was still nervous, but I was no longer consumed. I felt more peace.
 
*** The rest of the story …… I was interviewed by the District Attorney after going through the evidence box. I showed them where the missing pieces were. I had my moment to ask why certain, important documents so conveniently dissappeared. My interview shined a light onto the poor practices of the company, not me. In the end, my attorney stated matter of factly, as you can see, my client has no business being here. Then the kindest moment. The District Attorney, said, “I am so sorry we put you through this, I have no idea why you were even brought in!”
 
I will tell you, the relief I felt with her words were huge! Can you see how differently the outcome could have gone if I continued being consumed with fear?
 
What you think about, you bring about! 

{new Blog} I’m not happy, what am I doing wrong?

FIRST, you are not doing anything wrong!

I hear the question often, ‘I am supposed to be enjoying life, but what happens when I don’t?’

How many of you felt this way?

Seriously, when I go through these times, I feel, no one believes me in the first place, no one really hears me, and others just walk away. No one wants to hear about unhappiness, they call it drama, or they call it ‘being negative.’ Umm, so why does everyone ask, ‘how ya doing?’  Like they really want to know, right?

Well, I am not afraid to state there are times when I’m NOT HAPPY!

Please don’t label me as being dramatic, or being negative, because I don’t live there all the time. Not feeling happy doesn’t mean I’m a bad person or I’ve sinned or something. I feel it’s important to be aware of those times I’m not happy, and just as important to pay attention to those times I, AM.

WHY?

I believe most people seek happiness, but in reality, no one pays attention to what that really means for them. I’ve worked with many that are actually afraid of being happy because now, they feel pressure to stay there, or they feel fake, pretending to be happy.

What a mess!
Here’s the thing; life is filled with ebbs and flows! There are times when we are happy, and times when we aren’t. Now the question is, how long do you stay there?

Here’s what I’ve done, I created a book of joy. A book of Love. And a book of what makes me happy.

In my book of joy, I have pictures of me, as grandma, hugging grandkids, and the colors, emerald green and turquoise.

In my book of love, I have pictures of the beach, and my husband and family.

In my book of what makes me happy, I have pictures of hiking, pizza, diet coke, chocolate, and walking my dogs.

All the things that bring me joy, happy, and fills me with love. Look around and feel joy, open your mind for those times your heart is filled with love, and spend time with activities that bring happiness.

Be brave, be aware, and BE YOU!

No matter how you are feeling, don’t be afraid to FEEL!

Own it!

Stop blaming others or situations for creating your feelings, no one holds that much power.

You’ve got this! If you have any questions, send me an email, admin@jodykhill.com

In the end, you’ll realize, it’s a good life!
