CHANGE... is probably the most difficult thing for us to accomplish. Particularly when we are comfortable and caught up in habits and long-held patterns that have gone on for years and years. True change cannot happen unless those years of habits and long-held patterns of action (or inaction) are broken.
The same holds true for the way we see things in the world and the way we do things in the world. Things won't change until we shatter the heavy chains of personal and group patterns, beliefs and habits that bind us to the past.
The peace sign pointing down to me is a sign that chains us to how we saw and related to peace in the past. We have learned, grown and evolved so much since the 1960's (when the peace sign became famous). We have to change that sign to show that we are raising the standards of peace. Peace is rising... raise it UP... TURN IT UP! BE THE PEACE YOU WISH TO SEE.
Since posting and sharing my "Happy Fall Y'all!"... I've received quite a bit of positive feedback, and I'd like to say "Thank You" to Y'all. My website had been pretty quiet for awhile. You all have given me renewed hope to keep moving forward with Peace Positive™... and not to give up. And I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much! You'll be seeing some changes to the website over the next few weeks!
it is with GREAT excitement that I announce the birth of our jewelry line. The first sample of the Peace Positive™ jewelry line has been created. There will be more to come!
My newest Drop Card creation.
Since I was a child... being brought up in the light of religion... our church leaders always spoke of "The Second Coming of Christ". We were taught in church that Christ would come down from the clouds on a flying white horse followed by an army of Angels. It wasn't until years later that I truly understood what this "Second Coming" meant.
A set of books happened to cross my path that shed light on what the true meaning of this really meant. The books are called "The Second Coming of Christ,,, The Resurrection of the Christ Within You". Finally, I understood what it really meant. No, not some fairy tale of flying horses coming out of the clouds. (I mean, really??? Has anyone seen flying horses???) But something a bit more realistic... that went along with the Laws of Nature.
The Second Coming of Christ is Christ-Consciousness rising and shining within and through you! What's Christ-Consciousness? It about being totally conscious of what is right and what is wrong. It's about being conscious of your actions and the light & love you share or withhold. It's about self-realization. It's about recognizing your own fears and the why's behind them.
Personally, I spent so many years ignoring or not listening to the LIGHT (that still voice of consciousness inside), and often found myself withholding the LOVE within myself (that I could have shared) due to the voice of ego in my own head. I didn't want to look weak... and I hit wall after wall of failure because I was thinking all wrong.
Eventually the wheel of Karma comes along and catches up with you and slaps you REAL HARD. (By the way, Karma is REAL and is only a BITCH if you are! Trust me... I know... I've been a bitch in my lifetime.) I recently read somewhere that failure is your true friend. And now I understand why. Success can build arrogance, ego, pride and greed. I think I needed to learn lots and lots of failure before I could ever taste success... because I would need to watch out for MY OWN arrogance, ego, pride and greed. I've already had a taste and felt how having a little too much can create a monster within, if you allow it.
Failure though... failure builds humilty, self-examination and self-realization. It builds you up on the inside and creates new possibilties. With failure, you never lose... you simply LEARN. In helps you to truly appreciate what's important in life... instead of being spoiled with what's not important. Failure brings you to gratitude, true appreciation and a closer connection to that part of God within you. Failure can be your very best friend if you are willing to listen. Listening is something I have struggled with for a very long time. I've gone through a lot of pain and suffering in my life because I didn't LISTEN. I didn't heed the warning signs and the tugs of "Uh-Oh... you better not do that" within myself.
Allow Christ-Consciousness to rise and shine within you. WE are the Second Coming of Christ. We are waiting for our selves to stop allowing fear to rule over us... and simply RETURN TO LOVE. It's coming... can't you feel it? The sooner we allow it and let it flow within & without... the sooner our world with begin to balance and correct itself.
It's my belief that the more you fill your life with positive energy... positive quotes, positive actions, positive thoughts, positive people... the more positive you will eventually become. Healing a lifetime of negativity and negative thinking is not easy for anyone... and that includes me! But everyday I'm work hard at reminding myself and encouraging myself to "flip that switch". I work hard at catching myself thinking negatively and monitor my thoughts.
Am I perfect? NOPE! Do I still get upset or angry at certain people and situations? Oh my God... YES! But I try my hardest to remind myself to work through those moments of negativity and release what's keeping me locked in a particular thought pattern. Some days are harder than others to get through... because some hurts are worse than others. But I think with time and practice... it will all smooth out in the end. I have a great person in my life who helps and reminds me to focus on the bigger picture in life... and let the tiny, stupid things go. That life is too short. And I know... I'm still learning... and it takes practice.
Below is my new design for today. I decided to make all my Drops of Peace™ cards my very own artistic creations. I hope they will catch on with others as much as they have caught on with me. I absolutely love designing them!
