We Are All Prophets

Hello!

We hear a lot about “self-fulfilling prophecies” when we think the worst, and the worst happens. The belief behind a self-fulfilling prophecy is: you focus on, think about, and/or worry about something so long and so hard that your worst fears actually come true.

How about when we think the best, and the best happens? What about your best dreams and hopes? Could they come true if you put the same amount of focus and thought into them?

You betcha!

We are more accustomed to worrying about a fearful event happening in our lives than we are to dreaming, hoping, wishing, and expecting joyous and happy events. You get what you focus on. Can we start – and continue – to think of a brighter, happier future for ourselves? Can we consciously choose thoughts and actions that lead to that joyful future?

We have trained ourselves to constantly think negatively, so we now have the opportunity to choose to think positively. Let’s turn “self-fulfilling prophecy” into a wonderful outcome, a descriptive term for the way we are joyously living our lives every day.

We are all prophets of our own lives. Let’s prophesize health, abundance, happiness, and joy for ourselves and for others. Let every thought we focus on and every action we take lead toward the goal of self-fulfilling the beneficial prophecy of our choosing.

Blessings,

Jo

The Christmas Spirit

As the days following the Winter Solstice are considered the rebirth of the light, Christmas is the day to celebrate the birth of Jesus and the spiritual rebirth of us all. Jesus reached out to the lonely, the sick, and the poor, teaching them to live in the Light.

Christmas is our annual reminder that the Light, whatever we choose to name it, is always there for us, providing the perfect opportunity to explore our spirituality, share hospitality and generosity, and bring out the best of human nature. The messages are to give without the expectation of receiving, and that love and peace have the power to create a better world, if they were practiced more. Let’s keep the “Christmas Spirit” of generosity, love, and peace alive throughout the year and celebrate our Peace on Earth every year on Christmas Day.

 

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you joy, happiness, and contentment now and into the future.

May you carry peace and compassion within your heart and share it with everyone you meet.

May you let love fill you with such joy that it overflows onto others.

May you feel all the joy, love, peace, and compassion within you, and bring it forth throughout the coming year and beyond.

Choose to be happy.

Choose to be grateful.

Choose to feel, express, and share  love and joy.

 

With Blessings and Love,

Jo
