Today's Affirmation
 
"Today, I will choose the way of the Spiritual Warrior."
 
 
When we embrace our journey toward self discovery and unification, we become the spiritual warrior.  We travel the path with purpose and commitment, we accept the challenge of overcoming our lower aspects of self, and accept each moment on the journey as a stepping stone that brings us closer to ourselves, closer to the divine within us, closer to the self-fulfillment, closer to our true purpose.
 
A spiritual warrior is equipped with all he needs to walk the walk.  He is armed, not with weapons, but with skills:  He possesses clarity, discernment, perseverence, intuition, and commitment.
 
A spiritual warrior recognizes that each challenge is a test--a test he administers to himself to mark his progress.  There is no failure with this test.  There is only self-knowledge and recognition of his of his own limitations, that which is holding him back from moving forward.  When these limitations are recognized, the spiritual warrior accepts them, and works toward overcoming them.  A spiritual warrior never turns his back on the challenge and goes home to sit by the fire, no, he presses on, knowing what is at stake--true partnership with himself and reunion with this true essence, the Divine within.
 
A spiritual warrior reads the signs on the trail, so he will know which way to go next.  He knows when to make camp and rejuvenate himself, give himself sustenance to continue the journey.  Then he takes up his pack--his store of knowledge and skill--and moves on.
 
The reward of the spiritual warrior comes in small increments.  It comes with each success that he has, and when he reviews his successes, he back over his shoulder to see how far he has come, and is grateful for the journey, challenges and all, and grateful for the wisdom that the journey has given him.
 
You are now at the calling place--the place where you are given the choice to become the spiritual warrior, to embrace your journey, or to resume your journey with renewed vigor and commitment.
 
Choose the way of the warrior.

Today's Affirmation
 
"Today, I will make a choice to either embrace the journey of self-discovery, or to continue to stand inertly at the fork in the road."
 
Seriousness. Sincerity.  Surrender.
 
The journey toward self unification requires seriousness, sincerity, and surrender.
 
We all are on a journey toward self-awareness.  The rate at which we progress rests in our own hands.  We, alone, must make a conscious choice of whether or not to continue moving forward, owning our one choices and decisions, conquering our own inner beasts, and making progress, or continuing to stand at the fork in the road, inert, immobile, and languish in our own self pity, stubbornness, and resentment.
 
You have a conscious choice to make.  Which way will you choose?  You have been given the greatest gift that Universe can give you:  Free Will.  You, alone, must choose what you will do:  move forward or continue to stand at the fork in the road.
 
Universe has provided you an important opportunity to regain your Self and reward you with Self-Knowledge and Wisdom.  Will you travel the path and accept the gifts of Universe?  Choose now.
 
Make a serious commitment to your Self, to your own self discovery.  Be sincere in your journey.  let go of the defense system  you have created for yourself that blocks out not only others, but Universe as well.  Sincerely, from the very core of your being, ask Universe to light the way and lead you along the lighted path.  Surrender to the will of Universe, trusting that Universe knows what is best for you and will provide all that you need to come through the difficult challenges that you may encounter along the road to your Self unifying with your Self.
 
It is timely that you choose.  Universe encourages you to be courageous, to let go of your resistance, and to walk the path with confidence.
 
So, how will you choose?  Will you walk the walk?  Or will you continue to stand inert, stagnant at the fork in the road?
 
In Love and Light-Always,
Robin

Today's Affirmation
 
"Today, I will begin my journey toward self-partnership and self-union."
 
Partnership with ourselves is one of most important gifts we can give to ourselves.  Partnership with ourselves is an integration of all of the individual aspects of the self:  mental, emotional, physical, spiritual.  It is a melding of both the conscious and the unconscious.  It is the union of our selves with the Divine.
 
Instead of spending countless hours concerning yourself with your partnerships with others, turn the focus inward and concern yourself with making yourself whole.  The only way to do this is to partner with yourself.
 
The way to do this is to withdraw from the chaos of the outside world and seek within yourself for your own Divine identity.  Ask Universe to show you your highest potential and then work toward wholeness.
 
Keep in mind that the search for Self, is not easy.  It entails confronting those parts of yourself that you have been hiding away, hoping will go away, but just sit in darkness causing you dysfunction and distress and causing you to doubt yourself and your personal path. 
 
It is necessary to bring those things out into the light and to offer them to Universe for purification and recycling into positive energy that will return to you tenfold.
 
It is being honest with yourself, seeing your own flaws, owning them, and taking the steps to master them instead of letting them master you.
 
It is surrendering to the Universe, asking Universe to not only show you the way to self-discovery, but to lead the way.  If you are true to yourself, if you are committed to a balanced partnership with yourself, then your road will recognizably will be laid out before you.  All you have to do is step on it and begin your journey.
 
The time is right for you to begin now.  A time of transformation is at hand, and Universe encourages you to take up the journey toward self-awareness, self-discovery, and self-union.
 
In Love and Light-Always,
Robin

Today's Affirmation
 
"Today, I have a choice whether to succumb to others' control or to stand firm and weather the storm."

It's a horrible feeling when someone is mad at us.  Usually it is because we are not doing what they want us to do.  But do we succumb just to make them not mad at us anymore?  Or do we stick to our guns, so to speak, and tough it out?
 
I hate confrontation as much as anyone, it makes me uncomfortable, and I would rather avoid it than deal with it, but there are times that the confrontation is worth it because it is all about standing firm, communicating our perspective or our decision, and enduring the fallout--like not being spoken to for days, or being berated, or being criticized and judged.
 
All of these feels like someone is pressing down on the top of our heads and squeezing us from side to side, all because we don't do what they want, all because our perspective is different, all because we are not giving in to their control.
 
If what you are doing is right for you today, then DO IT.  They will eventually get over it. Look, you have two choices:  One-you can live the entirety of your life under the control of others and make no waves and everyone is happy except for you.  Two-you can wait out the storm that comes as a result of your making a decision that is thoroughly your own.  Your choice.
 
I surely will never judge you or criticize you for your decision, regardless of which way you choose.  Just try to follow your heart in all you do, develop as much awareness as you can, and live your life to the best of your ability.

In Love and Light-Always,
Robin

Today's Affirmation
 
"Today, I will own up to my flaws and make a commitment to conquering it."


Of course you are flawed.  We are all flawed.  To be human is to be flawed. 
 
Our flaws will never completely be eradicated, but we can recognize them, own them, and then work toward rectifying them. 
 
My greatest flaw has always been my volatile tongue, not thinking before I speak, and often just spewing my feelings, particularly anger, all over the place.  I remember, as a child, my mother would say things to me like, "One of these days, your mouth will get you in trouble," or "It's not what you said, it is how you said it," or "Watch your mouth."
 
Alas, my mother was right.  For years, I had no control.  I let it take me over, and sad to say, it never did work out well.  I can well recall embarrassing situations.
 
It took me many years to conquer this flaw in myself.  A good man said to me once said to me, "Always take the high road."  I consider this the very best advice that I have ever gotten.  It gave me a goal.  It gave me strength to overcome my tendency to just say whatever I was feeling. 
 
I began working on diplomacy, speaking my mind, but with calmness and clarity and in such a way that I could voice my views but without putting everyone (including myself) in terror.  This was not always easy, trust me.  I had many slips and falls, but each slip and fall reminded me of the necessity of conquering this damaging flaw.
 
I am happy to say that, although I still struggle once in a while, and even though I can get pretty fired up about certain issues, I have managed to keep my cool and communicate more effectively and less volatilely, more diplomatically.  And what I have seen happen as a result of this has been a greater listening audience.  People have more of a tendency to listen carefully to what I say instead of running away or becoming defensive.
 
This flaw of mine is something that I will always have to work on, always have to be vigilant with so  that I don't let it overtake me.
 
I tell you all of this because I want you to see that it is not impossible to overcome what you perceive to be your greatest drawback, your greatest flaw.  Don't let it continue to overcome you.  You conquer it.

In Love and Light-Always,
Robin

Today's Affirmation
 
"Today, I will trust my intuition."

Seek within yourself for what you know is true.  Your intuition will guide you to the answers that you are seeking.  Listen to what it tells you. 
 
Learning to trust the small inner voice is only insofar as you second guess yourself.  You question, "Am I just making this up?", "Is this really what I should do?", "What if I am wrong?"  But if you never stop to follow the direction that Universe is giving you, then you will never trust. 
 
Rely on your intuition to guide you.  Remember, your intuition is the primary mode of communication for Universe to send you the information that you need  to know. 
 
So, begin by listening and stopping the second guessing.  Just Follow what it tells you.  Intuition is never wrong.

In Love and Light-Always,
Robin

Today's Affirmation
 
"Today, I will stop and evaluate the behaviors that put me in the same situations over and over again.  And then change them."
 
Where do you go from here?  Where is your path leading you?  Sometimes you may feel that you are lost in a jungle of confusion, hacking your way through thick undergrowth with very little success and progress.  Every time you turn, your path is blocked.

Have you ever stopped to think that maybe it is not the path that is blocked, but yourself?  That something within you is stopping you from an easier path?  Could it be your way of thinking?  Could it be your actions and behaviors?  Could it be emotional blockages?

If you, right now, feel that you are struggling, trying to hack your way through the jungle, then stop what you are doing right now.  Sit down, and think things through.  Self-evaluate.  Look for patterns in your life.  Have you ever said, "Why does this always happen to me?"  Have you ever said, "How do I always manage to pick out the one dysfunctional person in a room of 500?"  Have you ever said, "Here we go again!"

So, maybe it's a wake up call.  Maybe it is time to stop the madness.  You may not be able to change environmental or external situations, but you certainly can change the way that you approach them or process them or deal with them.

Take a clue from the Universe, and spend time looking at the causes instead of the effects.

You do have the opportunity for a better way, a clearer path, a more direct route to your fulfillment and success.  Why not take it?

In Love and Light-Always,
Robin
