This is no coincidence, my going through this challenge
It is leading me to something better if I can embrace the situation
Even though it seems impossible at this moment
There is an incredible answer that is right here with me
For this reason I am going to meditate
So I can become more open to where you are trying to lead me
I will let go of all ideas of what my solution may look like
and be thankful for this challenging situation
If it were not so challenging
I may not have ever become this open
but now I am so please show me the way
Once again I am thankful for you getting my attention
I can barely feel my body I am now in the zone
Maybe I was just being led to where I am at this moment
Maybe being here right now has already changed it all
What comes next can only be incredible
I remain open to the signs everywhere I go

There once was a great flower garden, where many children were invited to come play.
Some got the invitation but were too busy for such nonsense
Others thought they heard their parents calling and chose not to enter
And a few entered into the garden, and they played and they played
The joy of this place is wonderful and unending
Any time spent here will surely change your life
There are no concerns here, only obstacles in the great game.
Hidden gifts of the garden to enjoy the great games
When you are in the garden everything is good
You can only marvel at the beauty, there are so many signs along the way.
All that you see here is what is wonderful and real
So when you return from the garden, this is when you play your part!

DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO REMAIN IN THE KINGDOM AT ALL TIMES OR PULL YOU BACK INTO THE HEAVENLY EXPERIENCE (READ INSPIRATIONAL BOOKS, WATCH UPLIFTING MOVIES, MEDIATATE, LISTEN TO POSITIVE CD’S ETC.)
It’s not enough to have heavenly experiences here and there, nor is it enough to simply meditate once a day, not if you truly want to transform your life and experience nirvana and heaven in all places. In order for this to occur you have to have your focus on the higher things at all times or as often as possible.
So even when we are in the midst of other activities our minds should be on the eternal and the magical ways of the universe. If we take time for books of a spiritual nature, deep conversation, chanting our mantra, and uplifting movies, our meditations in the lotus position will be much more effective. Our subconscious will also act on what it has been programmed by all day. Focus on miracles and beauty you get miracles and beautiful situations. Focus on problems and competition and you get more problems, competition and worries.

What is my next move?
Where do I go from here?
Where will I be most happy?
What does my destiny look like?
Where do you you want me to go?
Please talk to me and show me the way?
Can you show me in a dream?
Can you show me right now?
However you give it to me, I will be glad to receive it.
I will let go of my own thoughts,
let go of my own ideas.
I just need you to show me the way
I just want to be truly in touch.
I want to feel it at all times
I want to be at one
I want to be back in my place
I want to share the light,
give the light, be the light
This is what I want my life to be about
This is how I want to spend my days.
I let go of all else.
Perhaps I am ready
You have something
you want to see happen
The question is
can you simply allow it to come into being?
Simply allowing your dream to come true
is not giving up on your dream
It is truly the fastest way
to see it come about
When you learn to dance with the universe
you see how what you want most is trying to come your way
when you see it trying to come your way
you learn to be still and look for the signs
changing your mind and following the signs
is an incredible secret
it’s like deciding to stop driving in circles
and allowing GPS to show you the way
if you can be still and listen
your next step looks like a wonderful dance
it appears graceful and quite beautiful
full of incredible steps
But we know it started
with you learning to be open
learning to approach life
in a brand new way
asking what is my next move
and then letting the answers show up in your world
in the meantime the watchers by are amazed
and so are you
you just pulled off
uite often life’s tough problems are going to shake us up. It happens to the best of us. Even Jesus when he was on the cross he cried, “Father, father, why has thou forsaken me?” At first he was looking at his situation from a material standpoint, thinking, “I’ve done all this good for all these people, and now look at how I’m being treated. I don’t understand this. God where are you? Why are you allowing this to happen?” Then the story says, he reflected and said, “Thy will be done.” He realized that this is something that was meant to happen. This comes with the territory. This is what happens when you shake up the establishment in the ways in which he did at that time. When he remembered, he went back into mystical consciousness and was above the entire situation. He even began to comfort the man next to him on the cross. We saw a similar situation with Dr. Martin Luther King when he said, “I might not get there with you, but that’s alright because I have seen the Promised Land.”
Note Jesus also said “these things I do you can do and greater.” No matter what your cross may be, when you reflect and remember that God and the entire Universe is with you, and all is in perfect order, you can also move into your mystical state and be above the entire situation while you do whatever it is that you must do.

Most of us think of Heaven as being this place way off in the cosmos: the place we go to when we die. It’s the position that I just can’t seem to get to, or the situation I keep trying to experience and every time I get there somehow it escapes me. This is how we think of Heaven.
But what if Heaven is right here, right now, wherever you are in this moment, if you can see it? What if that’s the case? What if all this running I’ve been doing, trying to find my total peace and total happiness in this situation, in that situation is actually causing me to run away from my total peace, total happiness, and unbelievable abundance? What if there are incredible things trying to occur in my life and I’m blocking them by the way I see and approach the world? What if there is much more going on behind the scenes in my life than I realize? And what if everything is constantly occurring to try to improve my vision, so I can understand the fact that I’m in Heaven right now?
What if I could be so in touch with the universe that I could get the answer to whatever I wanted to know about anything, at any given time? What if my being so connected supplied just the right set of circumstances coming my way to achieve all the things that would bring me into that heavenly position that I’ve so longed for? What if I am a mini replica of the universe and there are higher realms within me I can visit in meditation? What if all it takes is for me to actually tap into myself and go deep enough to see this magical kingdom that’s been waiting for me all the time?
What if this is what’s going on with all of us? We’re in Heaven and we just don’t know it. Happiness beyond our wildest dreams is waiting on us. What if everything that’s happening is trying to get us to realize it? What if all the events in our lives are occurring in order for us to see the eternal through each situation? What if once we begin to meditate deeply on a regular basis, we see the light coming to us through all the events in our lives causing us to thoroughly enjoy every moment? What if when this occurs, life seems to become more and more incredible as we go along with unbelievable opportunities constantly coming our way? What if this makes us realize that even when a ‘bad’ thing occurs, it’s actually a good thing in the making? What if that good thing in the making is so good that other things have to leave in order for us to get to it? What if when you see life this way this is how it works for you? Heaven your highest good is right here right now and everywhere you go. What if when you don’t see life this way then it doesn’t work like this at all?

There is a breath that is far above the problems of this world. When you practice this breath you float above the cares and worries and you are riding on the winds of Heaven. Gliding with lightning speed you can see all things magically being taken care of. And you realize you had to let go of all concerns in order to practice this breath. As you ride this wind and practice this breath your former concerns are not even a part of your life, and yet somehow you handled them. You are so free, so happy just to be. As you continue to ride this wind far above the clouds, you realize all this wonder and beauty just came to you. It was a gift that came with the brief decision to meditate and just let go.

Five Ways to Shine Your Light in the World
By Michelle Dobbins
I found Craig’s blog a month or so ago and I love what he is doing here. Many of the messages from his posts were just what I needed to hear at the moment I read them. He asked me to share with his readers about my mission to create positive thought and action.
I started my blog, Daily Alchemy, as a writing blog and it evolved into a positive thought blog. I found that even though I desire to write fiction, I really have no desire to write about the writing process, so I started blogging about my beliefs on how to live life and viola….Daily Alchemy was born. I never wanted to write a spiritual blog, but I followed step by step guidance and that’s where God led me.
I’d like to share five easy ways to find your own path to being a positive light in the world.
- Start where you are. You don’t have to write a blog, be a life coach or minister to affect other people’s lives. Right in front of us are family, friends and maybe co-workers, who could be blessed by us. Be a happiness role model. When we are joyous, we spread joy just by being ourselves. Visualize others being happy. Help out where you can, while maintaining a positive attitude. Give them a hand up, but don’t allow anyone to drag you down. If you want to do something fun, go to http://www.29gifts.org and see how awesome it feels to give simple gifts to friends and strangers.
- Surround yourself with like-minded people. If you are on Craig’s site, you are already doing that. In every area of life that you can, focus on being in the company of positive people. I personally like Unity School of Christianity, but you can be any religion or none. You can get a lot of spiritual nourishment online, but I would suggest to try to find at least one person you can spend time with in the “real world” who can raise your vibration.
- Follow your Bliss. Do what you love. I love to write fiction and I hope to make people feel joy when they read my books. I started writing and following advice that resonated with me. Even though none of my books are ready to go out into the world yet, it’s led me to connect with wonderful people and hopefully inspire some. You can shine you light fixing air conditioners or singing on a stage. It doesn’t matter what you do, but how you do it.
- Listen to your Guidance. Things don’t always happen the way we plan them. When I get guidance from dreams or sign, I follow it, even if it’s not what I had originally planned. I felt guided to put a Magic question of the day on my twitter and Facebook, A simple, effective question designed to create positive thought. Sometimes, I worry that it’s a silly waste of time, but if it has made one person smile or gave them a sign that they are on the right path, it’s worth it. So I continue to do things I’m guided to do. I reach out to people when I feel led to, even when I’m afraid they might not be interested.
- Don’t be afraid to look weird. Being a positive light in the world means that you are focusing on shining your light for others. If that’s your goal, it doesn’t matter if someone unlikes you on Facebook or how much traffic your blog gets. All you have to do if shine your light and let God or the universe worry about the hows and the whens. Really all you have to do is be happy and take action when you are led.
Take Craig’s advise on meditation, it makes this go much smoother and easier. It’s not hard to love the world, just do it and magic will happen in your life. I promise.
Craig’ closing comments: To shine our light is so important. Michelle has given us some insightful, easy to understand, ways to do so. Thank you so much Michelle for sharing.
