Starting A New Path

LIGHT AT THE END OF THE PATHIn order to create something new. It takes energetically, a great amount of concentration, not in a stressing way, but in a positive way. It’s visualizing in a positive light, what you want created. Your vibrations regarding the subject need to be maintained. Any negative sway can distract you from creating it, where you find yourself doing something different than planned. Negative thoughts may surface in the process, but don’t ponder on them for long, as they will pass.

The Guiding Light

shms logoOften we might feel betrayed and play the role of victim when life’s struggles become overwhelming. In the heat of frustration, we blame God for unjustly doing this to us or we might even go as far to say that we’re deserving of suffering and that God is punishing us.

How Expectations Harm A Relationship

no expectationsIn a relationship, often there are feelings hurt. Why is this? One of the reasons is that there are expectations for the other to fulfill their needs. When this happens, suddenly a partner becomes dependent on the other, when before they functioned just fine. When their expectations are not met, it is taken personally and their feelings get hurt.

Thoughts On Thought

think positiveYour thoughts do not define you, they have a mind of it’s own… literally! HAHAHA Seriously though, if we don’t watch where they’re taking us, they may lead us to where we don’t care to go.

“Sometimes all you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best.” Unknown

Periodically a person will have positive and negative thoughts. Your experience comes from what dominates your mind the most. What dominates your mind may not always be your conscious choice but your subconscious that has been programmed through years of established beliefs, that you’ve created, on your own.

There are moments that make us become bitter, loved, hurt, happy, traumatized, and at peace. When we take the driver’s seat of how we’re thinking, we steer in the direction of our choice. Is it going to be easy to shift these thoughts to more positive? It’s your choice really. Do you care to stay in idle and allow the pattern of negative thought to rule your mind and consequently ruining your life experience? Sometimes it takes that extra conscious effort to snap out of that pattern, but It’s well worth it, if you care to turn your life around.

Try clearing your mind through breathing exercises, meditation, walks in nature, laughing, or surrounding yourself around positive and loving influences.

State of Mind = State of Peace

There are 2 parts to finding your peace:
1. Consciously monitoring your thoughts
2. Subconsciously placing yourself in a positive environment

Peace Be With You,

Jason Ratliff

Positive Narrowed Focus

Focus-on-positive-thingsWhat is a worry, other than a fear that has no relevancy to our best interest? What is the point of it really, when every word and/or thought has power behind it?

Worry is an unconscious conditioned response. It’s been passed down to us from society and our upbringing. Intentional? I wouldn’t like to think so. So what is it’s purpose? To create what could go wrong? But even the word “wrong” is wrong.

Why do I say this? Because even something that goes “wrong” has happened from the result of focused directed energy that made it happen. Like the focus of a fear. The more thought put into of being afraid, the more powerful the fear becomes. Where the energy is contributed, becomes the manifestation. All things that have occurred have been built by the consciousness from every human being.

There is power in your thoughts and passions. Direct your focus on matters of higher importance that help expand, grow, and evolve the loving goodness of your very own human nature. Why should we? Because it is in our nature. We gravitate towards the light. The place of our birth. Where we opened our eyes for the first time. Where we gained consciousness. It’s a journey, longing to be home again. Why have we taken this journey? Because it is a gift to experience. It’s a sort of amnesia that allows us to start out on our own. With the choice to experience the contrasting perspective.

Self-Help Tip:  Relax and let go of your worries. Doing this will give you time to calm the mind and think more clearly, refreshed. We can’t always be in constant think mode. When you give the mind a break, the worries you had are released and the problems fly away. After peace is gained, a message of hope comes flying back in providing you with the wisdom to resolve the prior worries.

Take every life experience as an opportunity to grow.

Glad to grow along with you,

Jason Ratliff

Your Inner Voice

Your voice is found within you.

The entertaining frog can perform the greatest ensembles when nobody is looking but when put on stage it loses its ability.
Have you ever found yourself having trouble speaking in public, performing on stage, or meeting new people, but when you’re in a comfortable setting like by yourself, in the shower, or around a select company, that you feel comfortable and free to be yourself? It’s moments like these where you are zoned in, expressing yourself freely, and with no distractions.

Anyone can do this. The talent you already possess within, so please do not doubt yourself. It’s all mental. As we become more comfortable in our own skin, being yourself becomes true nature.
