Forgiveness of yourself and others

I celebrate Yom Kippur but a little different then tradition. Most who celebrate spend time in Temple or in constant prayer. Some believe that prayer is the only way for forgiveness but I think good deeds trump prayer. I feel that GOD would rather you help someone else and create good energy then sit and say a prayer over and over. There are many people throughout history that did negative things and thought by going to Temple or church and saying prayers that they would be forgiven. While they may be forgiven, which always depends on the acts committed, I feel the best way to talk to GOD and the best way to get forgiveness is by doing good deeds everyday not just on holidays.

I fast all day long from the night before on Yom Kippur. I do brush my teeth and get ready for the day. Many times in the day I reflect on my sins and what I could have done different or better. I reflect on all my faults as a person and the learned behaviors from my life experience. I reflect from the outside in. I can see what needs to be evolved and this reflection helps keeps me focused on advancing my soul to make better choices in my life. One of the things I always reflect is about thinking before I act and speak. Sometimes I may say the wrong thing at the wrong time. This is something easy when you think about it but sometimes hard in the moment. Not too many people reflect on becoming better, they just focus on asking for forgiveness to what they had already done wrong.

If I was GOD, and for a minute pretend you are as well. Would you rather someone go to a place of worship and say sorry by repeating prayers or would you rather your child go out and help another child in need. If you are not doing good things in your life for others, how do you expect to advance as a good person? When you are doing good deeds every day you are counsciously in the light of GOD so it is that much harder to do something wrong. You have to live everyday like you were in Church or Temple. Live to help your brothers and sisters in need.

One of the biggest obstacles some of us have to endure is the forgiveness of others. This type of energy can stay for a lifetime. Regardless if that person is in your life any longer, forgiveness of that person and that act is crucial to your well-being. Me personally, I forgive people before they even do anything wrong. After the act, I forgive them instantly and never hold a grudge. I may choose to not have that person in my life any longer but I let that relationship dissolve with love. Forgiveness does not mean you are a sucker, it means you are strong enough to put your energy first and that your health and mind is the most important factor.

I have had many close relationships but if that line is crossed, that is the end. I know who I am as a person. The closest people know who I am as a person. Knowing that, if my line is crossed it mean they do not respect you in such a way, and once someone does it once, most likely it will happen again. Just like a spouse hitting another spouse. Once it happens, the pattern just begun. This does not make them a bad person for crossing the line, just means the time has come to release the relationship. People are in your life for seasons, reasons and lifetimes. When their message is delivered, the time will come to move on. Sometimes that time is delayed because of attachment and sometimes it is quick.

On a personal note, I had a huge miracle this holiday. I love to fish. I always wanted to catch a Cobia fish. It is one of the best fighting fish but also one of the tastiest. I have never caught one and have been trying for 10 years now. Today I caught one, a nice size about 20 pounds. When I was bringing it in, the line brook as soon as I was lifting it up in my backyard. I was devastated. Right at that point it was high tide and the best time for fishing. Also right at that point my wife called and asked me to bring her a change of clothes that was 20 minutes away. I felt frustration for a minute then realized it is all good. I know things happen for reasons as long as you are doing the right things in life. After I dropped off the clothes, I came back home to fish.

About 15 minutes in, my line said zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, I caught a big fish. After 20 minutes of fighting the fish, I reeled in not only a 40 pound Cobia but the biggest fish I ever caught. I was so happy and immediately reflected on my frustration after the fish fish. My time delay had to happen. I was using live fish so think about it. I had to throw the line in exactly at a certain time, the fish had to swim a certain path and the Cobia had to swim in a certain area. It all worked out just as it should be. So since I fasted all day, I got to break my fast with a miracle fish. It was delicious!!!!!!!!!

So the lesson of Yom Kippur and really in life itself is to do good deeds everyday, reflect on becoming a person soul everyday, talk with GOD everyday whether in conversation or prayer and forgive those who have wronged you and all the miracles with fill your life with happiness. May be all be filled with so much love that their is no room for any type of negativity. Namaste.

Robin Williams, suicide & demons

cover

There are always two sides to every story but there is also two sides to every event. For every event there is a logical reason and a spiritual reason for the event. For example, if you run over a nail and get a flat tire, logically the nail caused the flat. Spiritually, the reasoning is the same but different. Yes the nail caused the flat but your Angels, GOD, Buddha or whatever you believe in caused the flat. What if down the road you were to get into an accident? This event that was caused by a logic but had a spiritual conclusion. You in that particular space and time had to be delayed. Most people get upset when they have a flat because they will be late to work or the fact that they have to pay money to fix a tire. But what if it really prevented you from an accident. Now instead of getting hurt, paying a $500 insurance deductible and being without a car, you are only 15 minutes late and it costs $10. When you compare the two, one is frustrating while the other is thankful. Now lets take a look at Robin Williams and the two sides.

First let me say that he is one of the best actors ever! His ability to jump into any character is purely a gift. I loved just about all his movies and his presence will surely be missed especially by his family and friends. To have an impact in society as he did with his generosity is his saving grace. Some people have posted online with compassion while others have called him a coward. I personally use to have the coward type of view until I almost committed suicide myself at different  points in my life. Yes, I have thought about it and took steps to end it, however I had Divine intervention and I fought to live. This is another post I will write later.

Robin Williams as reported was battling alcoholism and depression for some time now. He recently went into rehab over the summer. Rehab is only as good as the person wanting to truly be helped and following all the steps to FIGHT their addictions. If you do not follow the steps everyday until you conquer the addiction then you will fall back into the same place and most likely a worst place because you did not make it the previous time. By not making it, you self doubt yourself making yourself fell worse. This is the logical side of things, now lets look at why people say “fighting demons”.

We all have guardian angels, at least 7, however some people have thousands. Depending on your life’s purpose depends on what protection and strength you need. But man and woman were giving the greatest gift, FREE WILL. With free will, your angels may not be able to protect and save you all the time. Sometimes you ALLOW the demons to come in.

When someone has an addiction, whether to alcohol, drugs, sex and many more examples, they allow the addiction to control their behaviors. If anyone knows a drug addict, they always say “you are not who you use to be”. This is true. You see when you are addiction free, you are the personalities of all your angels combined. You share their energy and you are all one making up the soul that you have. It is all the same.

There are good angels and bad angels and also demons or negative spirits. The good ones of course always try to follow GOD’s path while the other ones are attracted to the negative side. Your angels are always trying to protect and guide you to your destined path in life, that is their job. But when you are addicted to something and now your choices and behaviors revolve around the addiction, you allow your circle of protection to be open. When you are open, this allows other things to come into your circle of angels, like a negative spirit or worse a demon.

So why are your guardian angels not strong enough to keep them out? Because YOU ALLOW them in through your addiction. You invite them in unknowingly, or now, knowingly. Your angels at this point are still trying to save you and thats why you always contemplate whether to do your addiction or not. Every addict knows its wrong but the addiction FEEDS the negative spirit or spirits. When they are fed, they grow stronger because you are feeding them your energy as well. In return your addiction becomes stronger.

Just because you are a super athlete like Junior Seau or famous actor like Robin Willimas and have all the money you will ever need, addiction does not escape you. In fact, it is usually worse because of the lime light and pressure. How many times do we see famous people have addictions? Usually the first response is how can they be so stupid with all that money? Life is life regardless of money and fame. We are all equal to having addictions whether it is in your dna or not.

People contemplate suicide for many reasons, everything from breakups, addictions, depression, mental illness and much more. Me personally, I felt left alone. There were periods in my life that I felt alone in this world with no love and it seemed everyone left me. Some people can have all the material things in this world and still feel alone. Some may have a huge network of family and friends but still feel alone. It is not up to us to judge but up to us to try and help save the 38,000 people annually who commit suicide. They are not cowards, they need help. Need help to see the gift of life and what they can still do with their life. They need their life’s purpose renewed.

Many religions believe that one who commits suicide, they go to hell. Others believe that they get a worse life and are reborn while others believe that they go to Heaven regardless. Robin William did many great things for charity and children in need. Personally, I think we all have to beat our demons in our life. When we do not graduate to our life’s purpose whether it is by suicide or just simply not choosing the right paths in life, we try again. Again and again until we beat what we need to. Then we move up in levels and have different purpose whether here on earth, as an angel or whatever else is available that we have no idea or comprehension of. Either way, regardless of purpose, spread the love instead of judgement and negativity.

Show where your heart really belongs, in the grace of GOD or whatever your belief is. Show the highest form of compassion. Show your dedication to humanity and helping those beat their demons. Show the true you, the loving you, the you that you would be proud to call you. Be the bigger stronger brother and sister to all the children of GOD. Namaste to all.

Happy Birthday to Me

If I had to use one word to describe my last 36 years, it would definitely be MIRACLE!

I reflect daily on my life since birth. This helps me to be grateful in every moment. When I reflect, I do not experience the particular pain or joy of those moments, instead I focus on the lesson that was trying to be given. We all have missed lessons in our lives, sometimes the most obvious ones. This daily focus helps me to be present in the moment for the new signs and messages because GOD and our Angels are ALWAYS trying to guide us to the right choices.

I have been blessed so much in my life with Miracles. From the simple ones of waking up to the highest levels where I have seen lives being saved. We are all given miracles but when we work for the right things in life, we are blessed with even more miracles. Doing the right thing creates the right energy in your heart and soul. Having this energy everyday will only attract the same into your life.

I have had some awesome people in my life to show me things but when the lesson is learned, it is time for that person to go a separate way. Sometimes the ending is bad and difficult but sometimes that is the only way it could happen. In either case, I focused on the lesson and loose nothing, only gained insights, miracles and lessons to help me achieve my destiny.

So As I reflect once again, I hold the highest gratitude to GOD and my Angels for always looking out for me. I know exactly what I have to do in my life and if things change then I will adapt with a positive heart and soul all while having a smile. Nothing can break my smile or my love. This is from GOD and nothing is stronger.

Thank you to all my family, friends and people in my life who made me who I am today. For today is the best version of my self both physically and spiritually. As I continue to work on my mind, body and soul, I will never stop being a student of life while helping and teaching others to do the same. Love you all! Namaste.

Yom Kippur- Forgiveness of the soul

yom kippur

Yom Kippur, also known as Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year for all Jewish people. Its main focus is atonement and repentance. Jewish souls traditionally observe this holy day with an approximate 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services.

I was raised Catholic and later found my Jewish roots. Growing up, I told a priest my sins and then he would absolve them and  all negative energy in exchange for prayers and promises not to do it again. Any way to get rid of the baggage of sins that we all carry is a BLESSING. One thing I can see from confession especially at such a young age is the ability to say your sorry. The ability to lay down your ego and pride in hopes of forgiveness from GOD is a huge gift to have. One that we all should practice.

This is the 15th year I will be fasting for Yom Kippur. There are many ways to observe depending on your level of dedication to the holiday. My dedication is more of the purpose and meaning. It is about the connection between your soul and what you believe in. It is about the heartfelt emotion of forgiveness that you extend out from your soul to the Heavens. I focus on what I did lately and things that I have done in my past along with things that I will do in the future. I ask GOD to forgive me for everything.

Forgiveness is not just about asking so you can relieve your guilt and wrong doing. Yom Kippur is also the practice of forgiving others who have wronged you. Relieving anger and resentment is crucial for the well being of the soul and spirit. This weight can effect us more then we know. This is the time that we clean our soul of all energies and deeds. A fresh start for the year to come. To be uplifted so we can fulfill our destiny and we are meant to go. To fulfill our purpose while being mindful to always be the best version of ourselves.

God PLEASE forgive me for everything that I have ever done wrong or negative. PLEASE forgive me for everything that I do now and everything that I do in the future whether knowing or unknowing. Please help me see the right and wrong of every situation and give me the strength to always choose the righteous way. Please help me stay in your light and to spread the love of my soul. Please allow nothing else in my soul but love so there is no room for revenge or resentment. Please help me see, hear and feel what needs to be done. Please always send good deed opportunities my way. Whatever I can do to help to allow the destined paths to unfold as they should. Please be patient with me GOD. Please always have faith in me. I love you and THANK YOU for sending all the guardian angels to help us fulfill our destinies.

If I have ever wronged you, please forgive me. If I ever created any negative moment with you, please forgive me. If I acted any other way but my true self, please forgive me. I forgive everyone and always will. Peace.
