“If you put yourself in a position where you have to stretch outside your comfort zone, then you are forced to expand your consciousness.

~ Les Brown ~

In order to move beyond your current situation you may have to move outside of your comfort zone or stretch. 

S T R E T C H

  • Start
  • Thinking
  • Radical
  • Evolutionary
  • Thoughts that
  • Create
  • Harmony

Challenge yourself to think new thoughts about old conditions because when you change the way you look at things, the things that you look at change.  Start thinking radical evolutionary thoughts about your dreams and desires, ask yourself, “what would my most enlightened self do or think here?”  Your consciousness will expand and so will your experience.  Harmony, happiness, and heaven are a thought away!

Ali’s Spiritual Wisdom 5/12/2018

Behind all your stories is always your mother’s story.
Because hers is where yours begin.

Mitch Albom


I just returned from a reunion with my mother after six years of estrangement. It was a sweet and simple coming together and a light and easy conversation that opened a doorway in my heart.  Where it will lead, I do not know.  What I do know is we share a story that isn’t over yet.

Mother’s Day is a wonderful celebration for many but for some it is not.  Those that have struggled with difficult relationships with their mothers might experience sadness, anger, or confusion on this day.

I found this poem:

From her thighs, she gives you life
And how you treat she who gives you life
Shows how much you value the life given to you by the Creator.
And from seed to dust
There is ONE soul above all others
That you must always show patience, respect, and trust
And this woman is your mother

This woman whose heart has seen yours,
First before anybody else in the world,
And whose womb had opened the door
For your eyes to experience light and more
Is your very own MOTHER.

So, no matter whether your mother has been cruel,
Manipulative, abusive, mentally sick, or simply childish
How you treat her is the ultimate test.
If she misguides you, forgive her and show her the right way
With simple wisdom, gentleness, and kindness.

Suzy Kassem

I continue the story that I inherited.  How does it go?  How will it end?  It is up to me and how I live my life.  And I choose love, appreciation, and kindness.

It has been helpful for me to see my mother through the eyes of compassion, to know that she has always done the best she could, given her past, her stories, and her beliefs.

Whilst unconditional love and forgiveness are typically hallmarks of motherhood, it is not a given. Though it is for those that have journeyed into the heart and found loving without conditions and forgiveness are attributes of the soul.

Let’s honor our soul and activate our divine feminine energy this week by forgiving ourselves and others and unleashing our love to a world that is hungry for it.

May all beings be bathed in wisdom, gentleness, and kindness.  May all beings be illumined by love, light, and sweetness.

Prosperity is a way of living and thinking,
and not just money or things.
Poverty is a way of living and thinking,
and not just a lack of money and things.

Eric Butterworth

We live in an abundant universe, we are actually an aspect of this abundance.  We are born to be rich and grow richly by the use of our mental faculties.  As the quote above states, “Prosperity is a way of living and thinking”, as is poverty.  If we are experiencing lack, we are living in opposition to the universal flow of natural divine abundance.  We begin with our thinking and what we believe ourselves to be.  Do you believe you are worthy of receiving life’s goodness?  Please do, because you are!  Do you believe there is enough to go around?  There is!  Do you trust that your source and supply is the Spirit within you and that no person, place, or thing is the source of your good?  Good, because God within you, is your source and supply. Simply tune-in to the natural peace, joy, strength, love, creativity, and intuition that you are, unleash your uniqueness on the world, and God’s grace will prosper you and move you into an opulent river of blessings.

Prosperity is spiritual well-being and requires us to be grounded in God consciousness and when we are the whole Universe moves to flow into us with its abundance of life and substance.  So, how do we establish God consciousness?  Trust and know, that life is good and that the Universe has your back.  Choose to think thoughts that align with love, joy, freedom, and practice an attitude of gratitude.

The loving, fulfilling, creative, generous, and prosperous life that you want is what God wants.  You are the way that God experiences Itself here on earth!  Have a good time, enjoy the ride, give more than you get, and ‘May the 4th’ be with you!

Namaste’

Ali’s Spiritual Wisdom 4/27/2018

You, like all others, are seeking the joy of living.
You wish to be needed, to be loved, to be included
in the great drama of life.

Ernest Holmes

The Science of Mind helps us to see how to efficiently use the mind to create a life of well-being, self-sufficiency, and joy.  The best use of the mind is to engage it in the now moment, the task at hand, and to be fully engaged, and compassionately responsive.

Quite often we find ourselves misusing our mind, keeping it immersed in thoughts of the past, the memory.  Or in the future, the imagination.  When we are thinking our life should be better or different and we have repetitive thoughts of the past, this can cause mental patterns of regret, shame, and discontent.  And with repetitive thoughts of the future, this can cause mental patterns of frustration, comparison, “not enough”, “something is wrong”, and dissatisfaction.

Being focused in the now moment is the sweet-spot, where the joy lives.  Joy isn’t experienced in the past or the future, it is always in the present moment.  Befriend your mind, use your memory for thinking about the good times, and use your imagination for visioning a bright future.  Keep your mind focused on what’s working, what’s good in your life, and respond with love and you will unleash joy into the world!

Ali’s Spiritual Wisdom 4/13/2018

“Look at the word responsibility – ‘response-ability’ – the ability to choose your response.  Highly proactive people recognize that responsibility.  They do not blame circumstances, conditions, or conditioning for their behavior.  Their behavior is a product of their own conscious choice, based on values, rather than a product of their conditions, based on feeling.”

Steven Covey

What do you value most in life? I think all of us can agree that love, health, peace of mind, good relationships, kindness, and happiness are valuable to us. Are you taking responsibility for these things? Are you committed to your values? Do you have a firm intention to manifest these values in your life?

If so, make a commitment to yourself to be more loving, make healthy choices, meditate, be a good friend, be kind to everyone, and choose happy thoughts. The law of attraction says, we attract what we are. You have the ability to respond to life from your most spiritually mature and authentic self – expect miracles!

P.S.  This Sunday come share the love and hear my talk, Radical Responsibility, see you Sunday!

Ali’s Spiritual Wisdom 4/6/2018

Taking radical responsibility is empowering and liberating.  Make the choice to live in the principles of Oneness, Wholeness, and Truth, knowing that no person, place, situation, or thing is the source of your supply, that the Spirit within you is. Have faith and trust that there is a dimension of absolute peace, joy, creativity, inspiration, guidance, and love available to you ALL THE TIME!

Simply tune-in to it by accepting this Truth.  This might be unacceptable to the ego and you might get a little push back.  Stay connected with this Truth through meditation, contemplation, and spiritual studies.  Release all negative judgments, complaining, worry.

Practice HEARTFULNESS – that is mindfulness with love and compassion.  And you will align yourself with a more beautiful life your heart knows is possible.  Your only role here in Earth School is to reveal love.

Affirmations

I take radical responsibility for my life

I choose Oneness, Wholeness, and Truth


I am empowered to live the highest and truest expression of myself


I trust that the Spirit within me is my source and supply


I easily reveal peace, creativity, and joy in my everyday life


I practice heartfulness and reveal love


I am awake to my divinity and live from that awareness now

Ali’s Spiritual Wisdom 3/22/2018

Sometimes we forget who we really are, we forget our value as a precious child of the Divine and that we are capable of greatness. 

“Until you value yourself,
you won’t value your time.
Until you value your time,
you will not do anything with it.”


M. Scott Peck

Do you value yourself?  How do you measure your self-worth?  Your appearance?  Your job?  Who you know?  What you achieve? Your net worth?  If you gauge your value on externals you may find yourself stressed, disappointed, and chasing things that only temporarily boost your self-esteem.

Live from the inside out not the outside in!  Be your authentic self, love yourself first, love what you do, and do what you love.  Live in alignment with your values and share your time, talent, treasures, and love with the world.  And you will find yourself living a life of meaning and purpose, the life you were born to create!

Affirmations

I am responsible for my life experience

I am free to be me

I am all about my Divine Purpose

I am living my own special genius

I am passionate, powerful, and poised for excellence

I am awake to my divinity and live from that awareness now

Ali’s Spiritual Wisdom 3/2/2018

Embrace change is the theme for May and as I look outside my window and watch the ever changing weather, as I listen to the conversations about what’s going on in the world, as I notice the changes that happen in my body as I age – it is undeniable that change is constant, dependable, and unstoppable.

How do you prepare yourself for the everyday changes?  Every morning I light a candle, become still on the outside and the inside, and start my day with a namaskar/namasté – put my hands together over my heart to balance my energies – I give thanks for my body and my life – I honor my ancestors and all of my relations. I am then ready to step into my day feeling peaceful and ONE with ALL.  And things seem to unfold with ease and grace.  Try it and let me know what happens!

Namasté blessing from Gandhi

I honor the place in you where the entire Universe resides.  A place of light, of love, of truth, of peace, of wisdom.

I honor the place in you where when you are in that place and I am in that place there is only One of us.

Mahatma Gandhi

Love yourself!
Namaste’

Ali’s Spiritual Wisdom 2/24/2018

The healing power of love is enormous and if you tap into it and allow it to flow through you, you will transform your life for the better and uplift everyone and everything around you.

Unforgiveness blocks the flow of your vital life force energy.  If there is someone that you experiencing challenges with, felt distant from, that occupies your time and attention and brings you down, this is an indication that you have some forgiveness work to do.

Try this, see them in your minds eye.  Notice them just as they are without judging them.  Say to them, “I’m sorry that ________ has kept me from loving you the way I want to.  Forgive me for forgetting how easy love is.  Thank you for teaching me about love.  I love you without conditions.  I love you just the way you are.  I release you from the prison of my mind and I set you free.  I set myself free to be my True Self. Thank you.

Gratitude arises from forgiveness and blossoms into compassion!

Affirmations:

I release, I let go, I surrender to the flow.  My spirit knows how love flows through my soul. I am grateful. I am thankful. I appreciate all that I am and all that Life is.

Love yourself!
Namaste’
