JUDI LYNCH: “Practicing Spiritual Optimism”

“Learning how to live in the light of the spiritual consciousness while still in human form on the Earth is no easy task. How do we balance these two worlds together so that it makes sense?”

~Judi Lynch

 

The Earth needs our Spiritual Optimism now to create the energy to heal it. If we know right and wrong in our humanity, if it is possible to become part of the human mind to inherit not to hurt another living being, then let that spiritual optimism be our goal.

Practicing Spiritual Optimism

Have you ever known someone who, no matter what you say, continues to respond negatively to your suggestions after asking you for advice? Even if it appears they are destined to complain for a lifetime, remember that your words may just take more time to sink in. You might hear later, “I thought about what you said.” Also, there is more than just one answer to a life challenge, and the solution depends on the person along with the unique circumstances they are facing. We as humans operate on different levels of understanding. It’s not a judgment of good or better but of vibration, soul level, and maturity. We are on this Earth in a giant classroom filled with every ridiculous mixture of blood, bones, and consciousness through zillions of lifetimes spinning along in our own little universe. How do we stay optimistic when there is a divide, unrest, and hatred all around us?

Energy is something we can take responsibility for. Optimism creates an energy of hope and manifestation. If we want to manifest success and true ability to assist others in raising their vibration, it is imperative that we learn to control our energy fields. If we are still bitter, unforgiving, judgmental or seeking revenge, we will create a very shaky ground in which to walk our talk of living in loving spirit. If we could only look at someone and see the beauty of their face. The trueness of their heart through their soulful eyes, reading their words of pain and cry in empathy for what they have endured, we are learning. We learn how to recognize these feelings because we have felt them in the past and we sought out ways to heal them. We hold space for their tears. We also know that there is healing in letting those feelings evolve into a higher form of learning. Forgiveness, clarity, acceptance, compassion, and charity. Not only for others but for ourselves as well.

Spiritual Optimism is learning to flow with the lessons and glow with the blessings. If we are aware of our thoughts, words, and actions concerning our challenges, we can stop the self-doubt and criticism from bringing us and our vibration down. It’s okay to feel angry. It’s okay to feel slighted sometimes. It’s holding onto the feelings and letting them define us that makes us pessimistic. Anyone who tells you that thoughts don’t matter or that we are destined to live as our ancestors are listening to the voice of negativity. Soul mastery takes courage and perseverance. It takes a big heart but well worth the investment.

Learning how to live in the light of the spiritual consciousness while still in human form on the Earth is no easy task. How do we balance these two worlds together so that it makes sense? Very carefully it seems. If we go running off on cloud nine because we can feel the spirit, Intuit for others and heal by channeling energy then forget to pay the electric bill, it will get mighty cold in the house. If we know, there is more to this life than traffic jams, mean people and yes, bills, we are blessed to be sure. Many people have no clue what they are doing, why they are here or how they got here. It doesn’t mean they won’t learn over a lifetime of love, mistakes, missteps, crazy adventures and misguided fortune hunting.

Knowing what you believe in can help keep you optimistic as well. It gives you a base of peace to know that you have purpose and meaning. Helping others not because you were asked to but because it is a part of who you are. The human mind intertwined with the soul spinning in harmony and balance is the real power in our spiritual evolution. How long it takes us to get there is an arguable subject. The Earth needs our optimism now to create the energy to heal it.

The energy of hope can permeate the minds of those who have the power to help change it. If we understand this, we understand how history can be used about what to and what “not” to do. If we know right and wrong in our humanity, if it is possible to become part of the human mind to inherit not to hurt another living being, then let that optimism be our goal.

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “Tips for Boosting an Attitude of Gratitude in Daily Life”

Toss Labels Aside – Minds truly work when they are open and receptive. Avoid labeling things and people that you don’t understand as being ‘strange’ or ‘weird’ and open up your mind to higher levels of consciousness and receptivity. Try to be grateful for the differences that make each of the universe’s creations unique.

Appreciate – Value and appreciate everything positive in your life to foster a higher resonating attitude of gratitude. While you might feel as though you don’t have enough money or good health, remember all of those who cannot even feed their families or who are taking their last breath. Consider redefining what you consider valuable enough to appreciate, and raise your vibrations in greater appreciation for what you have.

Free Yourself of the Past – Beyond any lessons learned, there are not many physical or emotional benefits of clinging to the past. Being present in the ‘now’ is quickly gaining merit as a powerful manifestation tool in metaphysical circles. This moment – the now – is that you have and ever will have. While you should always have a vision for your future and prepare for it, living in the now is the only way those moments can come to fruition.

Be Optimistic – If you begin viewing failures or those ‘two steps back’ as learning opportunities, you’ll promote feelings of optimism. Embracing the ‘never give up’ mentality is how you can begin to manifest your own reality and ultimately achieve the success you seek. Remember, no one can make you unhappy except you! Avoid lowering your vibrations with critical opinions and judgments about yourself or others.

Be Kind – Being kind promotes the immediate release of serotonin, the mood hormone. Science shows that acts of kindness can make you feel better almost instantly and can assist in flushing out the toxins that cause depression and negative feelings about yourself and others. Beyond being kind to others, be kind to yourself to further embrace an attitude of gratitude.

Forgive Yourself and Others – Wanting to be right all the time isn’t a novel concept – but it’s certainly a natural one for many. Past hurts, judgments, and stress foster that need to be right. However, letting go of those past feelings comes only through truly forgiving yourself and others. Hopefully, this will come along with action on number 3 – freeing yourself of the past. Once you can forgive yourself, you’ll have the mental clarity and acumen to see the benefits of forgiving others.

Let Yourself Believe – Regardless of your faith – or lack thereof – people who believe in something out there tend to have higher levels of happiness and a greater attitude of gratitude. Consider connecting with Mother Nature or a universal power if religion isn’t your cup of tea. Learn how to meditate or take time to pray to further your connection with your chosen faith and enhance your state of gratitude.

Take Care with Your Body –Your body is indeed your temple, and a fit body promotes a healthy mind – two reflections of one’s true level of happiness. Exercise secretes ‘happy’ hormones and improves your state of awareness, bringing you into an active state of consciousness in the present. Studies show that both meditation and exercise can soothe the mind and body, which can lead to a superior attitude of gratitude.
