C.H.E.C.K. Yourself ...

Do You Have A Spiritual Mantra???

A spiritual mantra is vibrational sounds from the Creator that multiply your will and desire when they are spoken from a place of truth and purity.

I use my spiritual mantra as a "check"; it brings me back to myself.

C-Connects you to the community. Grounds you. Centers you.

H-Heals and transforms your mind, body and spirit. Sound has the power produce healing throughout the physical, emotional and spiritual body.

E-Engages Eternity when you speak ancient words and vibrations you transcend time and tap into ancient faiths and practices.

C-Clarifies and deepens your thoughts. Helps you to see clearly and act with clear intention.

K-Kindles and stirs your will and desire. This speaks to the power of your words and the power they have when they move from being thoughts to spoken words.

Some examples of Spiritual Mantras are:

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
When I commit everything I do to God, my plans succeed.
Greater is He that…

Whatever You Do, Consider Your Past

This is the time of year when we are setting goals for our future and based on those goals, our future looks very bright. Possibility is in the air and the air is clear and light. In the back of our minds we encourage ourselves by saying, "I'm going to let go of my past so I can embrace my future and just move on" or "The past is the past, I'm moving on with my future". I would venture to say that we should consider our past.

A consideration is an examination, attention or regard; it means to reflect.

In Ghana, West Africa there is a word that explains this perfectly - SANKOFA. Sankofa means to go back and fetch it. It is symbolized by a bird that has turned its head completely around with the intention of grasping an egg that rests on its back. Deep within this symbol lies a concept we can all live by:

Look back and be intentional about holding onto the things in your life that are fertile.

Reflect on your past and look at what of it you need in order …
