#MondayThoughts: Energy Consumption

I don’t have time, energy, or interest in hating the haters; I’m too busy loving the lovers.

Do you ever take a look at where you place or send your energy? Is it work, home life, kids, other people?

How about worrying, complaining, fear, anger, doubting, and a host of negative emotions and feelings?

Let he who is perfect cast the first judgement!

Life can leave you world weary but it can also be exhilarating. You have to decide how you choose to spend your energy each day. This is more than just positive thinking, this is having your spirit, heart and mind constantly charged to deal with life in the moment and throughout your day.

Don’t allow other people to sap your energy with their negative/dark energy. There are some who cannot understand your upbeat, optimistic, faith driven viewpoint. So, they attempt to bring your level of energy down to their low current. Literally sapping the life out of you.

We all feel and experienced different emotions depending on the experience. When we linger in or hold on to anger, frustration, bitterness, worry, fear, etc., you can only imagine how quickly our energy is depleted. Situations and people will fustrate us but we have to be mindful of not getting stuck in that energy for too long. We have to learn how to release it and let go. It doesn’t mean that we will not think about it at all, no one is truly made of teflon. I’m simply saying don’t get stuck in anything that takes away from your well-being. You are worth more than that!

Keep the flow of your spiritual energy free of debris. Read, meditate, pray, listen to music, dance, sing, write and do whatever you believe is beneficial to your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health. The tools are available to keep your energy strong and vibrant. I believe that you can do it!

Stay inspired and keep rising.

Dawns and Dusks

I’ve been told

A poet can invade the heart

And decorate it with such illustrious colors

That the illuminating effects

Can linger well into many dawns and dusks

Like the wise Sages of old

The translation of silent revelations

More Precious Than Gold

Smiles are so worthwhile

And I will give and take them in abundance

I liken them to little bursts of light

Brightening up the moment and stirring up the spirit

Smiles are breaking light punching through the clouds

Sometimes a smile says “It might be rough now but I will get through this”

I love smiles that make no sense

Because sometimes a little light-hearted nonsense keeps the world spinning around

I don’t turn frowns upside down, I just smile wholeheartedly

A smile is a catalyst for freedom, even if you can’t see it

Whatever causes you to smile, guard it tight

That right there is more precious than gold

#SundaySpirit 2

You can have it all

And have nothing at all

Overindulgence in the world’s offerings

Only leaves you spiritually starving

God provides a meal plan that is soul fulfilling

Simple, divine nourishment

Winter Night Sky


Fire in the winter night sky

Oh, that’s just the winter moonlight

Shining, beaming down

Spotlight, like God lighting the path


Taking it to heart

Soft spirit talk between God and I

Fire in the winter night sky

Keeping me warm

I sense the angels around me
