Monday, January 11, 2010 - Today's Words of Inspiration and Great Giveaways!

Feed your soul, Feed your life!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - I was watching 'Celebration of Gospel 2010' on the BET television network last night, and it just filled me with positive energy, it was so uplifting! The music, the faith, the praise, the outpouring of emotion just fueled my enthusiasm for 'the greatness of 2010' and what I want for it, even more!

We all need food for the soul, find what feeds your spirit! To say we are in troubled economic times is an under-statement, and when people feel hopeless and lost and their spirits are just plain hungry, it is easy to want to run, to escape, to not face it all head on. But ultimately, the problems are still there, the fears, the emptiness. And when you return to reality, you have many times compounded upon your problems by trying to escape them.

Feed your soul, feed your life! Sometimes 're-fueling' comes with mixing things up a bit, attend some conferences on spirituality, attend some concerts, visit a different church (especially when traveling!), make a  concerted effort to fuel your spirit in new, exciting and ever-changing ways!

What are you watching? Fill your TV time with 'positive' viewing, especially right before bed. Listen to your preferred 'up-lifting' music while taking a shower or in the car. I bet the positive energy will begin to carry over in other areas of your life.

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I will actively feed my soul today.'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

  1. Tracy, it is very important to feed your soul because unfortunately people often forget to do just that. Because the souls is not tangible or physical then we often ignore it. We often mistake our souls hunger pains for external hungers such as drugs or alcohol or other pleasures of the flesh and then we go without metaphorically and physically. I feed my soul by taking an aromatherapy bath every evening and contemplating on the good things I have done that day. I shut out the world and meditate on the goodness of the world and send healing hearts to all I know. It really does refresh and energize me while relaxing me at the same time.
