The Walls of your Jericho



City walls like  at Jericho
“By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days” This is what the bible says in Hebrews 11:30.  Now I ask: Have the walls of your Jericho  fell down after been encircled for how long? In the bible says seven days, but for many of us this could be a great deal longer. 


What are the walls of Jericho you have built around yourself?

  

I had made a real dense and high wall with negative emotions, I didn’t even know some were still there until I recognize it was really difficult for me to reach my Jericho.

What do I have in mind by saying my Jericho? Well, I mean your dreams, your desires, the consciousness which allows you to get what it belongs to you by Divine Right and that you have been resisting because of the density of the walls you constructed with your fears.

Your cares and doubts are keeping  you away from your good that is for sure, just as anyone else who has dreamed of a different life and this has not happened yet is because has a lack of faith and without faith no one can experience God  or in this case no one can experience the entrance to their own Jericho.


Why the struggle in reaching your Jericho?

 

The struggle is because you pay more attention to what the Ego is constantly shouting out  envy, resentment, anger, bitterness and so on.

I have watched myself in the past (and still sometimes now) and I used to live in the darkness, questioning myself  how do I fulfill my dreams? And getting frustrated because I couldn’t.

Blaming everything and everyone outside myself for my failures (Sounds familiar?) I am not very keen to read the bible, even though I know is a great book full of knowledge, possibly it is because I have this love-hate relationship with the Catholic church.

But from time to time I like to “come back home” and read it, of course it is easier now to come and check it out online that read those little tiny words in the book. So, this is one of my favorite verses

 “By faith we understand that the Universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible”  Hebrews 11:3  (Taken from Biblehub.com)

Whether you like it or not, the only choice, the only way to make the walls of your Jericho crumble is by faith! Yes, faith that whatever you ask for, it will be yours. Never forget the Universe does not know about jokes, w-h-a-t-e-v-e-r means exactly that good or bad it will be yours if you asked for it.

In conclusion
The walls of your Jericho can be taken down if you shout out your negativity, by quitting the role of victim and being victorious, by having faith that there is a Power within yourself waiting to be awakened, make your trumpet sound out loud and watch the walls tumbled down!

Without faith no one can experience God

Woman in across praying with faith, storm
Has ever happened to you that you actually want to believe there is a God somewhere, but your faith doesn’t let you go any further because you start doubting yourself and everything you know about it? I am writing this post because even though I have spiritual knowledge and  I have experienced heaven on earth, still  sometimes I fall into the Ego’s trap.


Why your fears and doubts dismiss your faith in God?



You are supposed to trust God, the universe, the one or whatever you like to call it, so then why all this struggle with faith? It might be the mixing feelings I have with religion that saying the word “God” makes me uncertain, but at the same time if I try to call it The Universe or Higher Power I feel I am being unfair.

Doubt can only contribute to one thing: Lack of faith follow by feelings of unworthiness or remorse because you are unfaithful to God. It’s a lot going on in your mind, in one side the wrong thoughts about religion and on the other hand that nowadays almost everybody seems to be an expert on spiritual awareness or new age stuff.

Which makes me wonder if they are teachers that have not yet mastered their own lives, directing to a crowd thirsty for something to believe in.

 

How do I experience God in my life?


The only way I know its faith, because without faith no one can experience God,  I do ache from a lack of it sometimes, mostly when life challenges me to displace on, forgive and forget, or same lessons repeat again and once more.

You are not alone, it happens to everyone the difference between you and others is that you are true to yourself embrace your fears and keep going, you fall on your knees, but get up and learn from your pain.


Having faith of the size of a grain and it would be enough, but what if yours is not even half of the tiny grain? What do we do now? You have to let go, you have to believe, ok then, believe in what? In a God that maybe even does not exist? Because if everything is energy and you and I are creators then why or what do we need God for?

Perhaps the trust you need it’s on yourself and not on somebody or something outside yourself and that’s the mistake, that is where the deficiency of it starts, because you are all messed up with your beliefs, what is correct and what is incorrect? I don’t know, you can’t be a master if you have not mastered your life, so I’ll keep walking this road until maybe one day the Light turns on and awakens me.

For now you only know that without faith no one can experience God, for starters have faith in yourself that might be easier than holding it on outside powers…!!!

Be good, be yourself and keep walking the spiritual path.

Abraham Hicks vortex

White and blue vortex
Not long ago I stumbled upon Abraham Hicks teachings once again and decide to actually pay attention to their teachings which I believe are interesting while not at all new, in the video I watched Esther Hicks was talking about The Vortex and how we create and accept every little matter that it's in there.

 

Who is Abraham Hicks to begin with?


If you haven’t learned about Abraham Hicks don’t think he is a person because it is not you will be  surprised as well as I was when found out that “He” is “They” because it’s a group of nonphysical entities that speak using Esther Hicks as a channel to tell us what they want.

You have to believe in order to understand and because the chief reason for this blog is to speak about spiritual problems I must pronounce that I feel a little bit skeptical about the whole matter, I think that there are spirits around us, but in this case, when she  Esther H.) Claims Abraham gave them The Law of Attraction, there were already books talking about it, so this is not new, other than that her teachings are good to listen to.

What in heaven is The Vortex?


The vortex according to what I understand is when you arrive at the core of your Being, when you get in touch with Spirit, with the Source or Universe, Esther Hicks says that everything you create goes there it is your vibration what keeps you in  or kicks you out.

According to Abraham Hicks the vortex its spinning all the time going along your vibration, all good things, desires and wants are there waiting for you to step in the right vibration and then manifest what you desire, but if you go on lecturing about what you don’t want this vortex will still be spinning keeping the things you most want until one day you resolve to quit being negative.

Which reminds me one of my post title the biggest mountain is within you  so the easiest way to come into this vibrational state is by getting rid of fear the root of all negative emotions.

How can you be in the vortex? Well, it is the same as when you do meditation and forgiveness work, you are at peace with yourself, finding that Inner peace gives you the strength to do whatsoever you want because you don’t require to even say it out loud  for the universe to see it.

So starting in the vortex as Abraham Hicks puts it, it is but a matter of inner study, a daily practice to abide and live in the straight.

 Please do not get me wrong, there is a lot to learn or remind yourself from the way Esther Hicks speaks to at the conferences.

What I brought up about being skeptical is that if you have never been in front of a person who can actually channel spirits, it’s hard to trust, if Abraham is real then you will live with the fact that it is (or they are) but until then you are liberal to take whatever you require to think.

In conclusion,  it is worth to get to know more about Abraham Hicks, its teachings and how they describe this vortex thing.

Please, if you have any comments let me know this is a pretty interesting topic.

What my Mother has to do with my money problems

Mother kissing her son with love
What my mother has to do with my money problems? This was a question I asked to my friend Zureya Queipo when trying to separate out some money problems, she sounded out “everything” I smiled I could not trust that assertion every bit true!.

I replied “please explain to me because I don’t Get it and probably not a batch of people know this”

How our Mother is related to our money troubles?


Well, according to Zureya who by the way is a very spiritual soul who aids people through the work of Family Constellations and also has a School for Women, according to what she stated if we have unresolved problems with our mother we will have money issues our whole lifetime.

We need to work from the inside out, looking back into our past and see how our relationship with our mother is or was… if you happen to notice there are many traumas or issues still pending between you and your mother then the money just won’t flow to you.

How to do to heal or fix issues with your mother


Now that we know  where this its been created, then here comes the best part, we have to forgive all what has happened to our mother in order to open the flow of money into our lives.

When she proved me how things go I realize still was admitting a lot of grudges from my teen years, a mass of anger I didn’t even know was there hiding very deep in my core.


Need time to condense it,  it's not easy to bear the fact that who is “messing your life up” is your own mother! Of course she is totally sinless. How does she know we are still lodged in the past?

Where  do you start forgiving?

From the beginning, I say   it’s a joke… we have to slow down, take hold of a piece of paper, pen or pencil and begin writing down whatever occurs to mind against your mother, write all the unresolved problems between the two of you.
Forgiveness is not an easy task we believe simply by pronouncing “I forgive you” voila! All is fixed… it does not work that way it has to be from the bottom of our heart with an amazing love and desire to change not your mum but yourself.

Everyone of us has the right to live without guilt and blame  which is in the end the main reason why we have those money problems because we feel guilty and ashamed of the resentment towards whom we suppose to love.

Conclusion

Our mother is a very substantial image in our lives and thus are the attachments and resentments that keep making up through time, are they positive or minus, we select, quit  the struggle of letting go, forgive, be grateful and let me know if your flow of money change.

Best school for your Spiritual Awakening

We all go looking for a spiritual teacher to tell us what to do or where to go to reach Spiritual awareness, to become one with everything, to be a better person and you buy every book that you know about, read every magazine, go to every conference or course you can find… and guess what the best school for Spiritual Awakening its your home!


How can your home be your school for spiritual awakening?


In the past, I did just as you do now I spent lots of money looking for answers to my spiritual questions, to my insatiable need for knowledge I ended up with only one book picked among several and back home.

Yes, back home, you face your family issues, your problems, your resentments and all the pain, abandonment and all the things you think your family did to you. Then you come to realize the more you forgive them the more you work towards your Spiritual Awakening!

As you can see the best school for your spiritual Awakening its your home with your family those are the thorns on your soul the ones need get rid of.

There are many ways that can take you to your Higher Self one of them its through your husband, your wife, your mother, father even your children.


How can you use your family for your Spiritual Awakening


I think the word “use” might sound, you a little bit off, but in this case its correct because you use them as mirrors, oh yes, they are mirrors reflecting back to you all what you don’t like about yourself.

At home every day, every hour is a lesson when you sit together at breakfast, lunch or dinner, when you call your husband at work and he doesn’t answer as soon as you would like him to or when he forgets to go to the store and buy something you needed.

Simply by your desire of changing your children or your partner, changing the way they think or they behave, when feeling victimized by what it is done to you.

All you have learned about Spiritual awakening its challenge it here, it does not make sense to go away where no one is around you, where it's only you and your soul.

What lessons are you learning?

The main lesson you learn is that the biggest mountain is within you Higher Power always teaches by repetition if we don’t get it the first time we will eventually because it will be coming back again and again until you finally forgive the “issue”.

The lessons are about love and forgiveness because by forgiving others, we forgive ourselves, as you might know a lot of the problems we have in our lives come from unresolved situations with our parents, siblings and/or with love life partners.


It's for you to decide if what you are giving is unconditional love or conditional illusion be honest to yourself, discover the best school for your spiritual awakening it’s at home. Don’t miss your chance for Inner Growth while at the same time loving them as one.

Are you still Lost in the Matrix

matrix, face
In 1999 when this motion picture turned out I viewed it in the theater, possibly wasn't the ideal time for me to comprehend the message I got a couple of parts here and there, in those days in my presumption I thought I knew everything that there was nothing for me to realize… how wrong I was! I can let you know now I was lost in the Matrix!!

Much the same as in the film it appears you are snared to an enormous machine which doesn't permit you to be free, lost in the actuality that the painted eyes of your physical body show you.


Lost in the sea of your faculties, in the pursuit to be, need and have more material stuff you carry on with your life trapped in the unbelievable universe of trepidation and uncertainty.

I know consume an  over medium steak with its red wine is delectable, having the auto or the house you needed is amazing

Those were your wishes, you concentrated on, imagined and envisioned about it so it was given yet that is not the true opportunity!

What is the Matrix?


We all are lost in the Matrix  like Morpheus says to Neo everything around you, your car, your house, your wife or husband whatever you can see, touch, taste, smell and feel, it is  what you call the real world, the one you live lost in daily.



Why did I beat you?


Why did I beat you Neo? The response is simply on the grounds that he is still lost in the Matrix much the same as you and I. You are hesitant to free your psyche. It is not difficult to stay in a safe place where as per you nothing can harm you

We are capable to create amazing things, but  doubt is always sneaking into your mind you have to embrace your fears  to realize that the power of negative thoughts is the thing that keeps you  snared to the huge machine, living like a zombie, strolling snoozing, being a slave of your faculties.


“Spoon boy:
Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.
Neo:
What truth?
Spoon boy:
There is no spoon
Neo:
There is no spoon?
Spoon boy:
Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself “

Matrix quote from imdb quotes


 
The spoon does not bend which means the outside won’t change it doesn’t even exist, it is you who has to free your mind from disbelief, from all your fears.
 
Conclusion
It is somewhat difficult to look around and see that what you generally took as true it is not any longer. What pill you take it is your decision red is to be free blue you stay lost in the grid. Open the entryway and stroll through it realizing that there is no possibility to get to be an obligation no one but you can take.

Alternately,  like my sister says "I rather delight in the joy of lack of awareness, I would prefer not to know and lose my hair suspecting that what I have known doesn't even exist" In the end is about the decisions we fulfill…  be, be fair to yourself, be free.

What do I do Meditation or Prayer ?

man, prayer, kneeling, meditation

In everyday life Meditation has become a very important way to get strength and peace due to the stress at work, at home and so on. Perhaps for you it is easy to concentrate and mediation goes fine from beginning to end, but some people like more prayer so What do I do  Meditation or Prayer?

First of all you need to know what is  meditation and what is prayer, then you can decide which one suits your needs better.



What is Prayer?


Prayer is a spoken petition made to God…. In regular prayer, we just recite it and ask, beg and plead to God for help with our problems, forgiveness for our sins to a God that is up in heaven, we supplicate him to fulfill desires or wishes that deep inside we believe don’t deserve because of the wrong we have done in life.

Doing Prayer is not bad at all but when done the right way as Stretton Smith teaches In his 4T program a prayer does not have to be long a boring go straight to your Higher Self and ask for what you want and it will be given to you.

For example

“The Divine Mind (or whatever you want to call it) within gives me now the $1000 dollars I need to pay my bills this month” or

"The God that I am, helps me now to find a wonderful, fulfilling excellent paid new job"

That’s it short, plain and simple God already knows all about you!!! This is just an example, you can add or fix it as you please.


What is Meditation?



Meditation is a form of mind training, sitting with eyes closed and clean your mind of all the clutter that is there all day long is a way of getting in touch with whom you really are,  when practice meditation on a daily basis results are amazing, reduces stress, pain, etc. It helps your overall health, not to mention how synchronicity starts happening.

When meditating we look younger, we feel stronger and happier add to this that answers to all your questions begin to show up, but the most important thing is you are at peace with yourself because you know Higher Power is flowing through you. It is great to learn how to live without guilt and blame  and with meditation one get to that point quicker than with only prayer




In the end it is your choice what to do when the question what do I do Prayer or Meditation arises in your mind, it depends on your mood or in what you believe I use both,  Prayer is a relaxing entry to meditation for me due to the big trouble concentration used to be… never give up on trying the results and changes in your life are as I mentioned before… amazing!

How do I Fulfill my Dreams

sign
As humans, we all have dreams some of us seek for a way to fulfill them some part just let them come, be in our mind for a while then give up on them however from time to time you give a little thought to it and ask to the Universe How do I fulfill my dreams? Is there a way? Because I don’t see it.

"A person who cannot imagine the future is a person who cannot contemplate the results of his actions. Some are thus paralyzed into inaction"
       Alan Lightman, Einstein's dreams goodreads quotes

 

What to do  to fulfill your dreams?


First of all, the main reason a dream stays a dream forever, it is because of you! Fear and doubt flood our minds, giving lots and lots of excuses and putting imagined obstacles every step of the way. In order to fulfill your dreams you must be strong and have a clear vision of what you want to add passion to it at the same time detaching from the outcome just know that it is already there, that it's already yours and give thanks.
There will be ups and downs, self judgment and criticism will be on the everyday menu while working towards your goals but don’t lose focus, shake those thoughts  are not you… listen to your Inner Guidance your Spirit knows better.


Stop sabotaging yourself


You must be aware of self sabotage  as at the same time we all have the power to manifest whatever we want, our mind becomes the enemy when in the process either because you allow another person's negativity penetrate and contaminate you with it or because you are too attach to failure. Neither one can be stronger than your dreams, go for it if you happen to live in a non healthy environment full of negativity, get out run away from it in case you cannot do it then start mastering meditation.
You have to learn how to use your imagination, how to feel as if your dreams already happen, as if they are already fulfilled, to believe that with God, Higher Power,The Universe or whatever you prefer to call it EVERY THING can happen.

In Conclusion
It is your own choice to go complaining around on how life is bad and full of trouble or change your mind, change your thoughts, next time in meditation ask to your Self how do I fulfill my dreams the answer will be there things will start working on your behalf synchronicity begins showing in your life rely on the power that is within you.

Happy dreams.

The Real Power of Gratitude

feeling gratitude
Gratitude is an amazing word which we forget to use in a regular basis, yes, we say "thank you" when someone gives us a gift or help us doing something, but the real power of gratitude starts when we actually are grateful for our life, husband, friends and even the grumpy boss we have to deal with every day at work.

How many times a day you think about Gratitude?


Living in a world where every day its a challenge, its a fight being the best,  to have more in order to be accepted in society, our mind gets stuck in the middle of past and future, but never stops in the now,  you have forgotten about being grateful… you seek more money, more material stuff even more love but how about gratitude? Do you even think about it all day long? The real power of gratitude begins when you stop thinking “I need” I want” and instead look around you appreciating what you already HAVE.

There is a switch of energy, a switch of “luck” when gratitude enters into your everyday life. How about giving thanks for the air we breath, for your health, for your family and so on. Are you looking for spiritual growth? Then this is a good way to start...!!

Still not convinced?


Well its easy to live your life complaining,  the struggle of letting go can be a huge battle, as we all know at the beginning is hard because your mind, it's set for despair, frustration and worry not for a happy and laid back life… if you are not still convinced of the real power of gratitude.. Well, then start by challenging your mind giving thanks every morning, afternoon and before to go to bed you will see how your life changes.

Every time your mind reminds you the struggle, pain, suffering and worry just tell it “I am grateful even for all the negative stuff in my life everything happens for my own good” the power is yours.

Conclusion

All those  tears you have cried for such a long time caused by fears and doubts can be wiped out with only one word: gratitude everyone has a lot of things to be grateful for we just need to look around to find beauty, love, life. Remember the power resides within you,  awaken that power by being in a state of grace.

The Greatest Lesson of my Life

When I picked up the phone I never expected to hear what I heard, just shook me off I was at work… my other sister called me she was different and then I asked what was wrong.

She said Olga has Cancer… you see and hear other people stories and you feel that is never going to happen in your family or in your life, but it happened I was there standing up listening like it was a bad dream.


She gave me the  greatest lesson of my life in faith and strength… I was thousands of miles away from her, but in my heart she was right there in front of me… she has two sons and  her husband.

The two sons new the problem, she needed to be checked out and do all the tests that are required in this situation and obviously the money you have to spend on doctors and hospital because she hadn’t health insurance.

They didn’t help her… my nephews refused to give a cent for the medicals… she had no money… all family members cooperate with something, but wasn’t enough, she said “don’t worry, God is always here with me, I will pray and everything is going to be alright… I am not going to die… not if it's not my time yet, this is only a lesson for me to grow”

I struggle with my faith sometimes, but when I saw her courage and that strong, unshakable belief that everything was okay… I couldn’t resist and look at myself and feel how wrong I was when I criticized her in the past because of her way to see God and her Religion.

Then all took shape and started happening in marvelous ways, incredible ways… a nurse from her church took her for the first tests, all of a sudden a young Doctor that was working at the hospital asked her what the problem was… she said my doctor discover several small balls under my right arm sent me to do the test and it came positive.

I am in the first stage so can be cured, but I have no money for the surgery… young Doctor said don’t worry mama you’ll be okay, come back tomorrow and look for me.
The nurse and this young Doctor contacted a very experienced expensive surgeon, which specialize in this kind of Cancer, he agreed to operate and do everything for free..!

Next day when Olga went again to see him, they had this great news… she cried and fell on her knees… God answered her prayers, the only thing she spent some money were the bus tickets because his hospital is like maybe five or six hours away from where she lives.

No one in my family couldn’t understand the strength of her faith, she was like a rock standing up, serene, calming down my mother, when someone talked about it in a negative way she used to say… no… I don’t take it  the disease is a lie, is an illusion.

What a great lesson to me, what an awesome way for God to demonstrate his Power but didn’t end there… like I said before, my nephews completely refused to give any help at all… but help came from somewhere Higher than them, people at church did some stuff to get money and they put together more money than they expected.

She had more than enough money to pay for the hotel, tickets, food, and everything she needed before and after the surgery.

Do I need to say more? Do I need more to believe there is a Higher Power that works for us when we call it? Will I keep struggling with my faith after all this? The  answer is no… I am  not… every time she comes home and I see her I see the Power of Belief right in front of me.

She is completely cured, and  her gratitude and mine also will go until the last day of my physical life… God bless all the women that have gone through it and my most sincere admiration..!!






If I Defend Myself I am Attacked

Man pointing, posing angry attacked
This is lesson #135 from A Course in Miracles I don’t know if you have ever read it, but this is a great lesson in the workbook… how many times in our day we feel Attacked and think we have to Defend ourselves from people, situations or just life.

You live with the thought that you are threatened by others so you have and need to protect and Defend from any hurt or pain that those others can inflict you.


We look for all forms of protection, but protecting from what? Are we really being attacked? Or is it only what fear who has created this illusion from what we believe is true?

You know the more you defend yourself the bigger your fear is… fear of what?
This was the question I asked myself this morning when the owner came to the house I am renting and started some construction work in the back yard… I was so upset, so mad at him, he was wasting the water, causing inconvenience to me.

I decided to go outside and yell at him and let him know who he was dealing with… but then a little voice inside me said “ what are you defending from?” am I really being Attacked? Why should I if I am about to move out anyway?

In this lesson If I Defend Myself, I am attacked A Course in Miracles says that if we defend the body, then we sick the mind as you know this is my own way to explain it my mind got sick of anger this morning when the old guy came to work in the back yard.

In other words, just go with the flow and don’t slaved your mind thinking first as if you were a body because you are not.

How would you feel if only release and let go of worries and fears and not to plan anything, just allowing you to know that there is something or someone bigger than you making the way in front of you.
The rocks in my path are many, but picking up one at the time they become less and less today I have learned to stop Defending myself nobody has attacked me but my own sick mind.

The Ego can block your vision with tons and tons of illusions, the illusions we believe are real, as real as they can be and we live in a constant lie… giving the credit of “reality” to what is no other thing but an illusion created by our fear to be free, our fear to go with the flow.

Don’t need to defend yourself anymore, no one has attacked you… there is a Higher Power guiding your way out of trouble, no need to plan and struggle for the future or get upset for the past… just a little spoon of belief and trust can make the difference in your life.

If you wish to read the whole lesson here is the link to it. If I Defend Myself, I am attacked lesson 135
God Bless You all




Is it The Mind or The Body Sick?

contemplating the mind
I always ask myself when feeling not good is it the mind  or the body, sick? The answer obviously is: the mind! Have you noticed a drastic change in your mood or someone pushes your “buttons” too easy? Well, you are going through a difficult time here…. The mind plays head games for everybody at all times.
