💡#WednesdayWisdom 》Observe the Masses; then…think, speak and do, the total and complete opposite!!!▪︎ [Romans 12:2a – be not conformed to this world]
Whether we believe it or not – there is a ‘Cloud of Witnesses’ cheering us on so that we can reach our goals, dreams, desires and destinations. It is important that we remember this; especially during those times when we don’t get the support, we’re looking for – from our friends and family. We should also keep in mind, that GO(o)D is IN us! And has – and – ALWAYS WILL have our back!
David encouraged himself in the Lord! This is the Power of I AM! I AM is not only a personal statement of our BEING – but it signifies and directly points to – the God that is within us! Again, I AM is NOT just about me(us) – it is about God with me(us)!!!
So go ahead Kings and Queens – celebrate yourself – if no one else will celebrate or encourage you. Remember, you are not alone! You and God make a powerful team; and are a force to be reckoned with. Also take into consideration: King David, Moses, Abraham, Matthew, Paul…etc. – and – we dare not leave out Jesus; all of these are examples of GOD HAVING THEIR BACK! If “He” did it for them, surely “He” WILL do the same for us(in fact it’s ALREADY done)!!
Therefore, take those blessed hands of yours, reach up….and then pat yourselves on the back (encourage yourself) – knowing, that as you do – you are receiving help and support from the Universe! Because what this simple act ACTUALLY means is: THAT THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE PATTING YOU ON THE BACK (after all it is GOD that is IN and WITH You – and don’t you EVER forget it)!!!
Today’s Winning Affirmation: “I AM Surrounded, Encouraged and Celebrated by the Universe!”
Scripture(s) for Today:
- 1 Samuel 30:6 (KJV) – And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.
- Hebrews 12:1 (CJB) – So then, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us, too, put aside every impediment — that is, the sin which easily hampers our forward movement — and keep running with endurance in the contest set before us….

Wherever you are.. Whatever your circumstance… Abundance is all around… What you desire to have is possible… Are you ready to receive it?

For the past few months, I have been committed to walking every day. It has become a sacred ritual for me in which I honor my body, my spirit, and my divine connection to everything. As I have walked this journey (literally) I have been given many gifts and messages in this space that continue to deepen and enrich my life beyond what I thought possible prior.
I’ve heard that when you decide and commitment, Providence moves to assist you in your desires. As I have committed to walking, my conscious choice to do so transformed into this beautiful invitation that I delight in accepting without any hesitation. It has become a flow that has opened my heart in many ways, including the gift of receiving.
Last week I went down to walk the water’s edge at night. The moon called me to stand and face her and I intuitively stared back in awe; arms wide and hands cupped open in receptivity. The sacred connection I felt, even as I write these words now, fills me with tremendous love. I could feel magic stirring in my soul as I asked her, “How can I be of service? What message do you have for me to share?”
“Receive, Receive, Receive” I heard in every part of my being.
“Surrender so deeply into the heart of your desires, open yourself so fully, that all that remains is matter…”
I received the beauty, the light, and the message of the moon. I felt connected, supported, loved, and beyond abundant. There was no need or desire I felt would ever go unfulfilled, as long as I remained open to my truth, my environment, and surrendered in my mind.
Since that night, I have been experiencing an overflow of bliss. My senses are ignited, I am aware of the gift of life, and I am in a constant state of receiving.
I lay in the sand, basking in the sun’s warmth, feeling the connection on my skin. I am given to. I walk down the street, receiving the smiles on people’s faces and feel their joy. I am given to. I walk at night in wonder of the night’s sky and think of my community celebrating the Super Moon this week. I am given to. I create space in my day to meditate and pray for answers. I am given to. I move my body and feel my strength. I am given to. I share what I have learned in life and business with my clients. I am given to.
The more I commit to bringing the gift of my presence to the things I desire, discover how to open and connect with all that is pleasurable around me, the more I receive. There is no feeling of lack, only love, only the sacred. It is from this potent, abundant, and magnetic place, I have continued to attract even more opportunities to be present, to bring my gifts and service, and to receive and grow.
I am so grateful that I have learned how to Listen and Love; how to Express myself and Align my Actions with my truth. I am so grateful for all that I receive as I Progress on this journey, as I L.E.A.P. to Rise.
I am so grateful as I share this journey with you.
I wonder. Do You feel like you are receiving enough?
Surrender and open even greater to the desires of your heart…
Where all that’s left, is what matters…

I Detemine My Own Good!
God Omnipotent created me as a free and full expression of Itself. I have the freedom of the Mind which brought me forth to express Its ideas. I choose, and Divine Law produces. There is no power to hinder me and no law to refuse me. All of Life is mine to use for good, and this I do. I determine my own results. I blame no one for my mistakes, not even myself. I refuse to believe that the world acts upon me, for I know that I act upon the world to demonstrate what I want.
Today I have unlimited health. As I praise life, health, strength and vitality, they arise within me and give of themselves through me. I am constantly renewed by inner power. I accomplish without strain. All things are easy, and all work is a pleasure. I rejoice in my God-given health. I rejoice in the power and strength that is mine.
Today, I have peace of mind. It matters not what others believe, nor what others do. My peace comes from my knowledge of God as my source, my life and my deliverance. I give thanks that this is so.
~Dr. Raymond Barker
