When People Come Against You

We’ve always had people who didn’t agree with us. Even Bullying isn’t new. Gossip has been around forever too.  With the internet and people being able to hide behind icons and made up user names things have grown to huge proportions. Today it only takes a few minutes for a tale to go all around the globe.

What do YOU do with all these stories?  Do you just jump on the bandwagon rolling by and take part?  What if that gossip is about YOU or someone you care about?  This is the problem with meddling in the business of others.  Personally I am not the least concerned with the private affairs of anyone. I am not interested in who is dating, divorcing or cheating with whom. I have business of my own and enjoy my very exciting and interesting life.

So what about you?  Are you a gossip?  Do you just go along with whatever is being said and share it with anyone who will listen?  I would be so excited to see a world where good stories made the rounds more quickly than gossip.  Can you imagine that?  How awesome that would be.

Now what about when you are the one being talked about?  What do you do?  Because I’ve been in the public eye for several years I’ve had a few tales told about me.  Now and then someone goes to the radio station chat and feels it necessary to type their fears about me for others to see.  I’ve even had a few folks share their dislike of me on social media over the years.

Do those stories have any thing to do with me?  Not really!  Many years ago one of my students carried a signature line on his email that stated a wonderful and empowering truth.  “What others think of me is NONE of my business”!  I love that and repeat it to myself on that rare occasion when someone sees me through their filter of fear. When people react to us the are for the most part not even knowing us, rather they are seeing themselves in us.  That is the reason for all the gossip and anger.  We see our own fear and beauty in others.  We are reflections for one another, like a 3D movie.  We see what we are most involved in energetically with in our own lives.

Free yourself by releasing gossip and fear.  Look for, acknowledge and celebrate the beauty and power within yourself and be amazed at how you begin to notice this all around you.

What Lies On Your Path?

004Sm.jpg

 

What lies on your path?  What shows up as experiences for you to interact with?  Where do these come from? How can I get the life I want to live?

Do you ever ask any of those questions?  I bet you do, I know I have.  What if I told you that every thing, any thing, is possible for you and that the probability is determined by your choice of thought combined with feeling and doing?  Have you heard that before?

2015 is a year of living the “Promised Fulfilled”  for those of us willing to move down the path of disciplined thought and mastery of our own life creations.  This means changing our habits of thoughts.  Rather than being tossed to and fro by the realities of others, we stay mind full of only that which we desire the experience of knowing that it’s already ours.  When you close your eyes and imagine a thing, an experience, you are there with that very thing, its real, it’s done.  When you open your eyes confusion often sets in due to the eyes telling you something different from what you know to be so.

How do we live with the creation before our eyes see it?  By following what we KNOW rather than what our eyes see.  I teach this process in How To Thrive In A Survival Mindset World, available at Amazon, Audible & ITunes,  It’s kindle, print and audio for you.  Decide today to change the way you are thinking.  It’s not just what you think, it’s how you think.  Spend five minutes right now watching that jumbled up chaotic bunch of thinking going on in your head. Use your breathing to slow down the jumbled up thoughts and pick one.  Move gently into that thought.  When everything scrambles up again that’s ok, take a few deep breaths and move back into that ONE thought.  Let that thought guide you to it’s expansion.

Have fun with this process.  We’ll talk about it more as we go on.  Be sure to listen to my radio broadcasts on the Awakened Radio Network.. you can listen with the TuneIn app on your mobile or go to the website http://www.AwakenedRadio.net

Joyful Receiver Keeping Flow Of Abundance Open

Donna DeVane Books

A lot of us grew up being told it was better to give than to receive.  That’s just not totally true.  Here’s why.  When you give and give and give without knowing how to joyfully receive you run out of something to give.  Have you ever felt resentful about how much you give to so many people and how little you seem to get?  I bet you have.  See, learning to receive with great joy keeps the abundance of all that good stuff flowing into and out and into and out and into your experience. Giving is a powerful way to have more of the great experiences show up in your life IF you are good at receiving as well.

Now I’m not talking about the “gimme gimme free free” mindset where people can never get enough free stuff or are always running from one place to another looking for something free.  That’s all about lack, poverty and not valuing yourself or others.  What I’m talking about is knowing YOUR worth and valuing both what is given and received.  When you accept gifts of all kinds, whether they be actual stuff, compliments, money or kindness you are agreeing with the flow of abundance and inviting more of that into your life and the life of all those you interact with.

Giving for most of us is easy, receiving maybe not so much.  Think of being a good receiver like this; your arms and heart are always open and outstretched, embracing life and all it’s gifts with dance and song.  Close your eyes for one minute and see you doing that, having that experience.  Receiving is about having that experience right now, where you are, even if you don’t physically have it in your hand.

Recently on one of my radio shows I used examples of how I won a few drawings for items I wanted to experience. I didn’t need them, or try to pull them to me.  I felt them mine, I experienced having them before my name was chosen.  That’s the how of receiving.  Give, yes.. give from you abundance.. Receive.. yes.. from the place of knowing that it’s already yours. Play around with this imagination game and let me know how it works for you.  I love comments.

Gardening For The Soul

IMAG0002

Gardening represents the growing of our selves as well as the growth and harvest of food for our bodies.

During the winter I till the soil to root up all weeds, seeds and plants that are not helpful to the crops I wish to grow.
This is similar to the process of being honest with self about all the emotions and experiences of the past which we hold onto to.

Just as weeds, unwanted plants, in the garden will take nourishment and water from the vegetables I do wish to grow; holding onto the past consumes the attention and focus of my life energies.

Winter is the perfect time to till up the soil and lift up the seed and plants onto the surface so that I can easily identify them for removal.

The cold winter, which lacks the heat of the sun and encouragement for growth allow many of the unwanted seed and plants to be absorbed back into the soil providing food for growth come spring.

I spend most of the winter thinking and planning about the spring and summer garden.  Choosing from many catalogs those plants, which will bless my life with taste, health and beauty.

When spring heralds the time of beginning of growth I once again take my tiller and go through the soil, removing unwanted traces of last year’s experience.

This process reminds me of time spent in meditation and journal writing.  I allow myself to remember the experiences of the past, the opportunity for growth and deeper understanding they bring.

Those which I have learned from I bless and allow them to go their way, being absorbed once again into the Universal Energy.

I think on the things in my life I wish to experience, the loving people and exciting situations I desire to attract into my life for my further growth.  These are the seed of my personal garden I now wish to plant.

A good garden requires soil, sun for light and heat, nutrients and plenty of growing space.  I can’t allow the old plants and weeds too much room or they take from my garden the things needed by the vegetables for growth.

Having decided which plants to grow and having tilled the earth and removed last year’s leftovers, I am now ready to sow the seed and plants of new growth and blessings.

Much in the same way, I take stock of my life and let go of past hurts, pains, anger and disappointment in order to have room for new blessings and growth in understanding to grow.

During the growing season I offer nutrients, sunlight, and my attention to keep weeds at bay so that my garden has and easy path for production of high quality veggies.  Daily I walk through the plants and encourage them, and offer my aid in whatever way is needed.
I focus my attention on the growth of my garden.

In my personal garden I daily take time to do an inventory of what is growing in my heart and mind.  I am honest with myself about the emotions I am feeling, the desires I wish for and the steps I take to cultivate these things in my life.

If I allow the weeds of anger, despair and hurt to take over my heart then my life is joyless and full of worry.
By weeding out the old plants of the past once I have understood them and their role in my life, I am better able to release them.

The sunlight of joy, peace and love are then able to grow untangled with the plants and roots of the past.
More sunlight is able to penetrate my life and heart and my garden grows stronger and faster.

Throughout the growing season I am diligent to provide proper food and water for my garden.  I walk through with my tiller keeping the soil soft and weed free for easy and fast growth unhindered by the roots of weeds.

In my personal garden I daily take time to walk through the experiences of the day and understand them, incorporate the lessons they bring.  I keep the soil of my heart loosened and watered with prayer and mediation.

At the end of the summer I gather all the wonderful fruit of my garden.  I relish the taste and quality of the vegetables and herbs.  They bless my body with health and provide a blessing to the hunger for strong nourishment.

Often more is grown that what I can eat, so I store the extra in the freezer or canning jars to pull out and use during the winter when the garden is resting.

My personal garden blesses me with patience, joy, love and peace.  I find that I have grown deeper understanding of my self and my brothers and sisters.  Each season brings a bigger harvest than the one before as my experience deepens and my understanding of what to plant and the timing of it aids the growth.

Gardening for my body mirrors the gardening I do for my soul.  The principles of one enhance the other as I incorporate the lessons of each season into the next.

The attention, focus and planning required to grow vegetables mirror the steps I take to grow in understanding, love and joy in my life.

May your garden have plenty of sunshine, rain and your harvest be plentiful and the fruit sweet.

Wake Up to your Greatness

You Are Awesome

It’s really a big thing that you realize just how awesome you are.  Until you do you will continue to create the same problems over and over again based on a false belief that you are powerless to change things, when in reality you are the awesome power creating experiences for yourself based on your beliefs.

That’s a mouthful of information isn’t it?  It’s true.  You are the energy, the creative mind, that brings your life into physical form so that you can experience yourself as the energy behind the experiences.  When you get this, really get this, you change everything.  You begin to create on purpose according to what you prefer rather than what you fear.  Most people stay poor even though they want money because they fear being poor and what it means.  They create late notices for bills, running out of money because this is the very thing they are afraid of.  Creating from fear only creates what you fear and more of it, big time.

As you awaken to your power to bring things into physical reality based on what you are experiencing yourself as, the joy, love, peace, abundance or fear, anger, dread, stress, you are free to decide what to create rather than creating on automatic.  Most of us have always created without much choice.  We’ve accepted beliefs, thoughts, ideas, that this is just the way it is and we keep creating with that energy.

Now it’s time for humanity to awaken to our greatness, to our awesome power.  Rather than just trying to survive another day it’s time to learn how to create a life that we actually want.  It’s time to awaken to the magic all around us, to understand that there is indeed more than enough of the good stuff for all of us.  We have only to reach out and experience it.  While that sounds simple and actually is simple, we don’t do it because we don’t believe it.  Now intellectually we know it, but we don’t really “know it” in our spirit.

This is the awakening.  Realizing in your spirit Who You Really Are.  Head knowledge will not change much.  As you move into knowing then things change because you change the energy you are creating with.  You are the key, you are the magic, you are the director in the play which is your life.

Isn’t it time you awaken?  Are you ready to create on purpose?

This is me, Donna DeVane with a manifestation crystal.  I”ve worked with crystals and stones for many years and have learned a lot, about the crystals and myself.  A manifestation crystal aids the process of bringing into form that which is wanted.  It’s a focus tool, a spiritual meditation aid.  YOU are the one doing the work.  You are the creator.

Working with stones and crystals over the years has helped me to better understand the process of creating.  Crystals teach you about allowing the energy to flow in and through them so that creation takes place.  The same is true for how you create.  You know that life Source Energy flows in, through and out of you, bringing into form that which you are knowing, being.

Just as light flows in and through the crystal it is always flowing through you.  As you open your awareness to this power flow and direct it with beliefs, actions, statements of affirmations and knowing, it comes into form.

Being open to the energy moving in and through you to do the work is key.  It’s not your mind, your body, your hands doing the work first.  Spirit is doing the work through you… Life Itself is the energy of creation, it’s moving in and through you, using your hands to bring physical form to your desires.

Know that you are the fountain of Life Energy! Know yourself as Creative Energy!  Now get to creating what you want to experience.
