Working for God

It’s occurred to me over the years that working for God doesn’t mean you have to be a religious leader.  I believe that when you are living life with love in your heart, you are working for God.

It doesn’t matter if you are a Writer, Artist, Reiki Master, Custodian, Pilot, Firefighter, Librarian, Teacher, Secretary, Clerk, Cashier, President, Spouse, Parent, Bus Driver, Truck Driver, Factory Worker, Designer, Student, Photographer, Actor, Computer Guru, Manager, Nurse, Doctor, Engineer, etc. as long as you have love in your heart for God, us humans and all beings; then you are working for God.

How do you know if you are truly working for God?  Do you feel a sense of peace from head to toe and deep down to your soul? When you are on the way to work are you thinking how happy you are and how much you are looking forward to being of service today?

If you are not feeling IT, and you are thinking on the way to work how much you are dreading today. Do not worry not all is lost.  You do not have to change jobs. You can if you must, but it isn’t necessary; just change your attitude.  The same job you are tolerating and just doing to get a paycheck can become working for God.  It all starts with your own personal feelings.

Find something you like about your job.  First on the list could be that you receive money for just showing up and being there.  A paycheck, that’s something to be grateful for. Then look at your coworkers, find something about each one of them that you like. Even the co-worker you just cannot stand has something about them that is good.  Perhaps at this point the only good you can see, is that they are stubborn no make that determined.

I know this works, because I have used it in my own life.   If you have other tips we can use, I would love to know.  Please share your wisdom and leave a comment.

Life is good!  God is great!  All is right in my world!

Reiki & Me

To me, Reiki is an active form of meditation that is allows me to be a conduit for God’s healing power. It is an amazing process that always leads me to experience incredible joy.  So much so, that I have called my business “Healing Joyfully.”

I was born with the gift to heal energetically, but didn’t realize what I was doing until I was 30. (I haven’t figured out if I’m unobservant or just a slow learner).  I always thought my friends were being kind and sweet when they told me that being around me made them feel better.  I finally figured it out with help from a distressed friend.  She came to visit me when she was at an emotional low.  At the time I was on a spiritual high from being able to meditate everyday for a couple of hours.   When she arrived I hugged her, thinking I wish I could take away her emotional pain.  Within a few minutes, she was giggling and I was crying.

Once I figured out that I was a healer, I actively searched for knowledge and training.  I eventually came across Reiki and it just speaks to my soul.   Reiki is not just a healing technique it is a spiritual path.  There are five principles to follow (see my jpeg or yesterday’s post).   Just in case you were wondering, now when I do energy work on someone I do not take on their pain, I observe it and let it go.

A little history: Reiki is a technique that was developed by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1920’s in Japan.  The word “Reiki” was formed from two Japanese words that together mean guided universal life force energy.  Reiki heals on many levels: spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally.

As a Reiki Master I put my ego aside so I can become a conduit of God’s healing powers for my client.  My greatest talent as an energy healer is my ability to get of God’s way.   Because of limitations of the English language there isn’t a word other than healer to describe what I do.  I’m not the true healer, God is.

During a Reiki session, I gently touch my client’s body in various places such as the eyes, face, head, neck, shoulders, stomach, back, legs and feet.   I let God guide me as to where I should put my hands and how long I should keep my hands still so each Reiki session is different.  As God’s healing power comes through me and out my hands to the client, my hands heat up.  Sometimes both my client and I are sweating despite the fact my air conditioner is running perfectly.   Then there are the rare times, my hands become ice-cold.    It’s an amazing experience.

In order for me to be the best conduit I can be, I have to feel love for the client i.e. universal love.   We all know that some people are easier to love than others, so at times I have to call on God to assist me in feeling the love.  He always comes through for us.

Life is good!  God is great! All is right in my world!

Just for Today, I will…

Dream the Impossible

Your attitude pretty much sets up the way your life will go.  For example, if I had the attitude that I would never, ever get better I would still be in a wheelchair.  Worst yet, I would be lying in bed wishing I had the strength to use a wheelchair thinking it is an impossible dream.

Instead the impossible dream I choose to create was based on two facts I knew to my soul were true:  1. I am a beloved child of God; 2.  I am a healthy child of God.   My attitude was and is “it’s just for now” that I feel awful and unhealthy.  I went to bed with the idea: tomorrow, I will wake up and be able to live with joy in my heart, because I am a healthy beloved child of God.

I also did what I could to reclaim my health.  1. Had a support team that consisted of God, my family, friends, doctors and ME.  If I wasn’t part of the support team and I let everyone do for me instead of participating in my own medical choices; then I felt I would have been giving control to others instead of God and me.  Giving away my power to others is not an option.  2.  I followed the medical treatment that was prescribed to me.  There was no sense in spending money on doctor appointments, if I were not going to follow the protocol to wellness.  I didn’t follow blindly, I asked questions, did research and was an active participate in the final decisions.  3.  Prayed daily; on my bad days I prayed hourly.

It was a long slow journey (at least it was to me as I was living it), but I am here today sitting here writing this post with joy in my heart because I am a healthy beloved child of God.   Each night I look forward to tomorrow, because I can’t wait to see what else I can do, how far I can walk and how much joy I can spread.  I created the impossible dream, because I let myself be positive, be hopeful, and be strong until my vision of myself became reality.

What is your impossible dream?  What attitude have you adopted to create this so-called impossible dream?

Life is good!  God is great!  All is right in my world!

Bringing to Life the Impossible

God Loves

Have you ever wondered what is God?  Here is my short and sweet answer:  God is love.

It makes sense to me that God is love, because when I’m quiet and I just listen; I am at peace.  I can feel God’s love throughout my whole being.  I’ve never felt anger, sadness, hate or any other negative emotion.  God is love.

Years ago, I was relating to some of my church friends, my relationship with God.  Which was that I always followed with what I should do…after I argued about it a little bit and/or tried to talk God into something much more convenient for me.  Their reaction was funny, they worried about this for me, but I told them, “It’s okay, God loves sassy women.”  And so it is.

I know when I am following God’s path by how I feel inside.  If I feel at peace, calm and loving – it’s in alignment with God.  If I feel jumpy, nervous,  or scared – it’s not in alignment with God.  Further proof that God is love.

Life is good!  God is great!  All is right in my world!

Blessings,
