Avenues of #Expression – November 4th – #Inspiration

November 4th

Avenues of expression are opening to you now. Blessings are yours.

The quote above is from The Messages: A Day Book section of The Presence Within: Channeled Guidance available in paperback and ebook.

Infinite possibilities exist and can be unlocked simply by trying something new, taking a different path, asking a question, extending ourselves to others or allowing ourselves to create. Something, someone, someplace new and beneficial waits just outside our usual routine. I’m choosing to be on the lookout.

Every blessing,
James

#Create a Favorable Expectation – July 17th – #Inspiration

July 17th

Create a favorable expectation. Meditate and hold good loving thoughts and feelings.

Quote above from The Messages: A Day Book section of The Presence Within: Channeled Guidance available in paperback and ebook.

A favorable expectation is what exactly? The more I work with these principles, the clearer I become on the difference between expecting to be happy and expecting a particular outcome. I remember when I started working with prayer, I had a new pair of jeans stolen from me in laundry room of a homeless shelter, which given my economical means, really hurt. They were Calvin Klein jeans, they fit very well, and had purple trim on the pockets and I bought them at a Savers. I prayed for weeks, “those are my jeans and they are coming back to me.” I did happen to find those exact jeans again, weeks later, balled up on the sidewalk, blocks away from where I had lost them, the wearer had experienced a bout of diarrhea and had taken them off and left them there, useless and disgusting. I realized I wished more than anything I had just prayed for a new pair of pants, LOL!

I work to not limit the Divine from bringing me the best by demanding what I think I want from my limited perspective. I especially enjoy using the phrase, “for the greatest good and joy of all,” which makes sure everyone’s needs are met. How happy would I be if everyone else were made miserable by my wishes being fulfilled? Not very.

I also learned, beyond doubt, that prayer works. I just have to not be attached to a particular outcome.
