Guardian Angels

Whether you’ve thought about it or not, guardian angels are proof of God’s love for you. They are a continuous reminder that you are not alone.

Your angels can’t  be conjured up on demand. They’re not “genies in a bottle.” They’re a constant companion to guide, help and inspire us.

You MUST ask your angels to help you.

Offer thanks for the celestial communication they provide.

Your Health Is A Blessing!

Many of us “busy folk” take our health for granted. We’re caught up in taking Jimmy to soccer practice and Susie to her ballet class. We don’t think about how our busy-ness can compromise our health.

Your health is a precious gift from Spirit. It IS the foundation for everything. If you don’t take care of yourself, there is no way you can be of help to family or friends.

If you have nothing but your health,  you are wealthy. With your health, you have EVERYTHING!

Intuition And You

Your intuition or inner voice is what God gave you to maneuver safely through your life. 

Your intuition tries to communicate with you in inventive ways. One way, gets our attention by triggering a physical reaction in our bodies. Another way is warning us not to take a particular action. The last way is an inner knowing that helps us arrive at the right place at the right time.

Challenge yourself by going within to seek the wisdom and guidance of your authentic self. 

Your authentic self speaks to you in whispers of your intuition. In order to learn about its marvelous power, you must be willing to take a leap of faith and trust it. Put it to use in little ways. Use it every day and eventually it will flourish and enhance your life the way the other 5 senses do.

Authentic success is
  • ·         Taking time for yourself and your family
  • ·         Not putting off what you can do today
  • ·         Feeling focused and serene
  • ·         Accepting your limitations
  • ·         Calling forth and using the gifts God gives you
  • ·         Making a difference in other people’s lives
  • ·         Feeling good about who you are
  • ·         Celebrating your accomplishments
  • ·         Knowing you’re abundantly prosperous
  • ·         Being grateful for what you have
  • ·         Recognizing you’re BLESSED on a daily basis

Integrity


Communication is about connection. It takes 5 seconds to make an impression. Bob Roza

Years ago, I worked with a speech assistant. I took over a short-term assignment and the assistant was part of it. I could never have imagined how my tone would open her up.
The first time I met Kim (not her real name), I sensed she was guarded. My instincts told me  She has trouble with men.

One of the things  I’ve learned as a supervisor/boss is to make my staff or colleagues welcome.  I believe we “teach” each other.  From the start, I gave Kim freedom to try out techniques she wanted. Each time, I gave her that freedom, I sensed her ease into her responsibilities. You could see her confidence grow and grow.

Each week, we met to discuss the students and the progress they made. These weekly conversations were necessary so that she understood that her observations and suggestions, were valid.

One day, she told me about a student who was in her after school  program. The teacher asked the class to draw a picture of something they did with a family member. One girl drew a picture of her and a family member having sex. This girl was 4 years old.  Kim and some of the other adults noticed this. They collected the pictures and immediately called DCFS (Department of Children and Family Services) for this girl. It came out that an uncle engaged in a number of sexual events with her.

As Kim spoke about this, she welled up and began to cry. A part of me understood the gravity of the situation and I too, began to cry. No one should be a victim of an adult’s evil.  But it was what she revealed next that stunned me. Bob,  I’m a victim of this same thing. One of my father’s friends was sexually abusing me for years. This is the first time I’ve ever spoken about it.

I was stunned. Her truth was RAW. I didn’t know what to do or say next.
Why are you telling me this? I asked
Because I trust you. She said.
I grew quiet. You need to tell someone about this. Have you thought about counselling?
I’m gonna tell my dad today. I can’t hold this in anymore.
I agree, I said.

We worked together for another month. I had to trust that the “supportive tone” I set throughout our time together would be healing for her.
