Discover How to Master Your Destiny

For me, there is no one particular approach or technique in discovering how to become master of my spiritual destiny. As a matter of truth, I have not really mastered any one thing fully. Every day, every situation in some way is the same yet in some ways, different, so... What I have done though is become better in some things today and I was say, a couple of months ago, a year ago, 10 years ago or even a lifetime(s) ago. My reminder is, "A little progress in many areas is better than no progress in most."

I do have some spiritual exercises and techniques that I diligent and consciously practice on a daily basis ( Some of them I practice when I'm in the midst of one of life's challenges have a worrisome situation or a problem that I need an answer to in order to resolve something or another. Many of you may already practice some of these techniques or perhaps have heard or read about them on your journey. I have listed my daily spiritual exercises for you to use or modify and use to fit your own unique self.

Every morning before I start my day, I fill my heart with Love.

I sing a love song to God, The Source, Divine Spirit… I sing or chant the word HU (sounds like the word hew). Then I contemplate. Some people pray or meditate…

I write a Gratitude List. I list everything that I am grateful for before my day begins. (A couple of my favorites are: I AM grateful for the gift of another day, I AM grateful for life and what life reveals to me today.)

I write in my my Days of Soul Journal every single morning! Sometimes I pen about a dream journey I had the night before or a feeling I may have upon arising or my thoughts at that moment.

Taking responsibility for everything that happens for me has been, by far, one of the best spiritual exercises I've put into practice. It is the one spiritual exercise that has brought me the most on my journey.

On a separate sheet of paper I write 15 times, I AM declarations. (Some of my favorites are: I AM a Divine Spark of God; I AM in accord with God's Will and God's perfect plan for me).

As my day unfolds, I make it a point to be awake and aware and I consciously do my daily tasks in the name of God and Divine Spirit, which includes all that I do, say, how I act and respond, and I do everything for the good of the whole.

I cherish the gift of life and I trust the Source that resides within me. Going within for answers and for guidance is my mainstay rather than solely relying upon reason and logic. I listen to my inner nudges and my Spiritual Master, which resides within and then I take action. I listen to advice and make my own choices, and I know where I want to go so, I always take the right action. “If you don't know where you want to go, any road will take you there.”

Do the absolute very best that you can do. Whatever you do, do it with love and for love. Be the best you that you are capable of at the moment, then surrender and leave the rest to Divine Spirit.

Happiness is a State of Consciousness

“As one learns to express these creative abilities, he becomes a Co-Worker with God. No matter what comes up. No matter how difficult the circumstances, he finds a way to make the situation a little better. He is able to come out of it a little bit happier than when he went into it.” The Cloak of Consciousness

That was my contemplation seed one morning as part of my spiritual exercise and it got me to thinking. I thought: happiness is where you find it. You make your own happiness. Those are just two examples of what we hear from people and what they sometimes say about happiness—that state of consciousness. A famous blues signer from the 40s sang, “Happiness is a thing called Joe.” Mm, so there you go. But that’s not necessarily where you or I would go to find happiness.

The natural state of Soul is a state of happiness. Personally, I find happiness in the simplest things. It really doesn’t take too much for to me to find happiness or to be happy, remembering that that’s my natural state of being anyway. I derive happiness in seeing my beloved husband, and my friends and family members enjoying a meal that I’ve prepared—even when I’m preparing a meal, I’m in a state of happiness. Seeing someone smile after I’ve said or done something silly or offered encouragement to someone that somehow lifted their spirit or empowered them in some way makes me happy.

When I think of happiness from Soul’s point of view, I recall a summer in my youth. That summer I had quite a lot to be happy about. I was approaching my 13th birthday and I’d be entering high school come September-quite a lot to be happy about. So, I armed myself with all kinds of books and magazines and such. I read my very first novel that summer, a real racy one, The Carpetbaggers. I was so happy—I was becoming a teenager—no longer a child. I was happy—I was almost a grownup, entering a new arena of life, of learning, and anything that I could get my hands on to read, to study, I thought, would help me and so, I spent that entire summer in the basement reading and dreaming.

What I didn’t realize at the time though was that I was soul traveling and visualizing what my life would be like. In that happiness state of consciousness I was being bold and adventurous—intrigue and mysteries unfolded for me. I was truly a happy camper. That was one of the happiest moments of my youth. Then “reality” hit when my mom and aunt would call out to me to “get my head out of the clouds” and join my cousins and the kids in the neighborhood outdoors to play and get some fresh air.

An Ancient Master said that “Soul must be spiritually bold and adventuresome,” and that “the timid never find happiness.” Outside of my revelry, I thought, “I’m not nor ever was I ever like what the ancient Master spoke of Soul being—bold and adventuresome. Instead, I was shy and timid and afraid of life. Yet, at the same time, inwardly, I was preparing myself to begin a life filled with happiness, boldness and adventure.

Today I’m most happy being a student of life, of Divine Spirit under the tutelage of my inner Master, doing my best, being my best, having the best thoughts, everyday, and moment-by-moment, and step-by-step becoming a conscious, happy Co-Worker with Divine Spirit, the Universe.
