Meditation - truth of situations and people for blog

Meditation for Truth About Difficult Situations and People

Consider how you first feel about a thing or person. It will likely either be a clue into their true nature or into yours. Are you “seeing them” or “reflecting yourself”?

 

To begin this meditation call on your Source, God, Angels, Higher Self.

Allow yourself to relax and be open to receiving.

Use this simple meditation I’ve written to raise the truth when in situations or with people that may ‘rub you the wrong way’.

 

Meditation:
My soul is at peace and my heart open. My mind and spirit are receptive to the truth that resonates through all things.

Allow me to feel, process, and understand the uncomfortable situations and challenging people that come into or are in my life.

What do I need to understand about them or myself? (Pause)

What is true about them and myself? (Pause)

What is needed from me to allow more of my higher self and loving self into these interactions? (Pause)

I seek peace and understanding and I am open to the truth, whatever it may be. I allow it come to me with abundant grace, honor, ease, and joy.

(End of meditation.)

 

Now you may either continue to meditate quietly and see if Spirit will give you clarity then or continue about your day, with a new, heightened sense of awareness. Spirit can quite often answer the questions of our heart while we are going about life and when we are in the moments we may have asked about. So don’t be surprised if after speaking with someone you’ve had a tense relationship with, you have an ‘aha’ moment and you begin to understand the cause and source of the tension. Spirit answers us in innumerable ways, but we must be open to hear and receive.

This meditation is to open you to receive the truth. It’s okay to repeat it regularly. You can play it back to yourself during your meditative or prayer time.

Love, Blessings and Truth,

From Stumbling Sailor to Giddy Schoolgirl – Its Gonna be a Good Year

January stumbled in like a drunken sailor having had more than his fill of cheap whiskey while celebrating some long-awaited time away from sea.

The splendor and lights of another holiday dimmed as I lit candles to celebrate the season of birthdays in my home. The Capricorn crew had it’s season and although it was fun and memorable, I’m happy to wish it farewell until next year. And did I mention the grip the flu had on the youngest in our house? Yes, January came filled with stupor, wish-making, and dream-breaking only for wishes to come true and those dreams to be broken by the sunlight. I am awake. I ride into the next month still a little tipsy on wishes, dreams, and chances made good.

I know a little of what the next two months hold. With the inner giddiness of a schoolgirl just asked to the big dance, I look expectantly to March and the sweet surrender of winter in the warm embrace of Spring. It will be a good season; a good year. A miraculous year. I claim this for myself and hope you’ll claim it for you too.

See, there are many things I plan to do now and later. I plan to have more fun now, experiencing being more present in each day. I plan to do more of the work that gives me joy and less of that which doesn’t. I plan to write plays, music, musicals and learn how to bring them to life.

Most importantly, I plan to play more games, have more silly dance parties, and more movie and popcorn nights with my family.

I also plan to plan a little less.

2017 happy holidays from Bernette

Holiday Magic

2017 happy holidays from Bernette
This weekend we hosted a large holiday party. In the invite we mentioned it would be karaoke and open-mic (which I thought would make for a fun night). However, no one had said they would do the open mic or karaoke; my daughter was moody and upset hinting that she might stay in her room for the party; and in my focus I’d even managed to upset mom (oops). And the rest of life hadn’t stopped – kids school, book editing, and more!
At 5pm I finally had to stop so I could get ready for the 6pm party. Alone and able to slow down, I groaned in frustration and then took a deep breath. I started asking the question, “How does it get better than this?” 
The magic and the miracle is that when we use that question without trying to answer it, it leaves us open to all the possibilities available through the Universe. The Universe certainly has more possible solutions than I do. This doesn’t mean ask and then sit back and do nothing. We don’t get off that easy. It means ask and then move forward in who you know you are.
Who wants to go through the holidays stressed, upset, and without the joy that this season can bring? Not me!
By the end of the night my daughter and I were singing Proud Mary together, mom was happy (and sang Hallelujah), and the guests joined in for karaoke including holiday carols. I didn’t know how it would work out, but I knew it had to get better. I didn’t have to figure out how. I couldn’t have changed my teen daughter’s mood on my own; or my mom’s for that matter.
I can only control me and am responsible for my attitude and actions. So I had to be open to what my family was feeling and how my stress in preparing was impacting them. I had to be me in that I wanted to do karaoke and as the host I had the power to get the party started. If it meant being the only one, I would be okay with that.  During what might be stressful holiday times you can be the one to get the party of joy, peace, and goodwill started – just by choosing to be it for yourself.
holiday-magic-!
Miracles and magic happen everyday. They can be simple and personal, but these are things that often have the greatest impact on how much ease and joy we have and the overall quality of our lives.
Create some holiday magic by letting yourself shine and asking, “How can it get better than this?”
Happy Holidays!
Love, Light, and Peace,

What if You Could Change Your Life in 21 Days?

What if You Could Change Your Life in 21 Days?

Are you ready to create a miraculous life?

I hope you answered yes!

I hope you know you deserve it!

Not that long ago, I was at a crossroads. I could choose to slink away with a feeling of defeat or do something different. What did I have to lose? I was already losing myself and my joy so I decided to try something out, giving myself twenty-one days to see if it worked.

The long story made short is that it did work, and continues to work. I am amazed on a daily basis and so continually expect to see the miraculous show up in big and small ways.

Can you imagine what your life would feel like if you were open to the power of possibility?

Whether you are seeking peace, joy, better relationships, or more abundance – it begins with you being open to receiving more of those things in your life. Being open doesn’t necessarily come naturally to everyone. Being able to receive doesn’t come naturally to many people either. The ability to receive as well as give requires practice.

The Creating Miracles program will help you focus your attention and begin shifting how you perceive what is possible as well as your awareness of what you are creating.

In the first week of the pilot study, participants were already experiencing mini miracles and becoming more aware of what they were attracting into their lives.

For example, one person was tired and needed a break from work. She recognized the same fatigue in her co-workers. She used one of the questions in the program and within an hour operations shut down – for a total of four to five hours, giving everyone the much needed break!

Another participant found extra cash in her wallet unexpectedly.

Another had the chance to attend part of a speaker’s training for free!

I personally have created opportunities to showcase my work as a writer, poet, and vocalist.

As cool as those little miracles are, the most exciting change was in the people who experienced them. They were recognizing what was happening in their lives and calling more in. They were becoming more aware of Spirit at work and becoming open to the possibility.

  • What might your experience be?
  • What would it take for you to change your life?
  • What if you could begin today and in as little as twenty-one days be living a new experience?
  • What would be possible if you gave yourself the chance you deserve?

What if you were willing to find out?

You Can!

A Letter to Fear

A Letter to Fear

Published in the Oracle 20-20 Metaphysical magazine, Atlanta, GA

 

Dear Fear,

When I first met you I was so young. I had so little experience out here in this big world. I was naïve and innocent, uncomplex, and idealistic.  You seemed to come in just when I needed you, strong, powerful, and protective. You reminded me of all the dangers this great big world had and how much I needed to stay away from possible hurts.

You, a shadowy figure, masquerading as the people I knew and loved, engrained in me that risks were bad, being different was a social death sentence, that failure was to be avoided, and success might not be what it’s all cracked up to be. I sang a song aloud that the crowd sang, but inside a different tune rang out. I tried to quiet that melody; it made me feel too alive, and as you’d taught me before, being too alive was dangerous.

Fear, it’s been a long road; with difficult twists and setbacks. I tried to honor you by not crossing those lines you drew, in my best interest. I tried to live in a way that would please you. But I couldn’t please you. For you always wanted more of me, more of my possibility, more of my hope.

You could not be satisfied with shaping me into the woman I’d become. You had to remind me even still that I should not risk stepping out on my own; that I should be satisfied with the mundane in life and in relationships. You tried to remind me that I truly couldn’t trust anyone to keep me safe as well as you.

Fear, I must now tell you that the reason I haven’t answered your call lately is because I don’t want to hear from you. I don’t want your voice in my head so that’s why we haven’t talked. I decided to start singing out loud that song I used to only hum in my head.

I know you are there and you keep calling for me, but certain relationships just aren’t good. Yes, I’m figuring that out for myself now. My relationship with you has kept me back for far too long. It’s kept me in denial of my true myself. I’ve denied myself so much I must now learn to create my own footsteps by walking my own path. You can no longer keep me from experiencing life.

If I fall, I fall. If I fly, I fly. But either way I’ll be doing it based on my choices and what I want. From now on you don’t get to decide what I risk and what I hold onto. You don’t get to decide what passions I pursue and the dreams I dream.

You probably think I sound unreasonable right now, even a bit insane. I mean to toss aside a relationship that I’ve had since I first cried and learned that the best way to get what I needed was to be what someone else wanted me to be.  Well, I think it would be insane for me to keep listening to you. Insanity is to keep doing the same thing and expect something different to happen.

I don’t expect that you’ll stop calling. In fact I know you won’t. I don’t expect that I’ll never talk to you again. I suspect I may not always have a conscious choice. But right now, today, in this moment, I am choosing to make me, not you, the deciding factor in how I live my life.

I know you didn’t mean to hurt me or make me miss out on so much. I know you were only trying to protect me and make sure I survived. Well survival isn’t good enough anymore. It’s time for me to live.

 

Good bye,

B. Brave

 

Excerpt Dancing with Demons
Blog, Coaching, Creating Miracles, Heaven is Now, Inspiration, Poetry, Spirituality

Why Did I Start “Creating Miracles” and “Write Protect and Clear”?

 

“My lungs gasp for breath and my chest contracts

They try to steal what remains of my will

Break me to the point that where I once ran I crawl

My vision of life becomes a mirage

And the tears fall like shattered rainbows

As if the gods themselves have cast their stones

I wail in the night that comes to bathe me

Wondering how many times midnight will chime”

From Dancing with Demons, by Bernette Sherman

 

We all go through periods when it’s hard to see the light or believe we’re on the right path. That was me not so long ago. I was looking at my life and feeling an overwhelming sense of, “F&*@ It! None of what I’m doing matters. Why bother?!”

I was ready to throw in the towel when Spirit spoke to me and reminded me of something that in my time of distress I’d nearly forgotten. I’m a spiritual being and this is a very human experience. As a spiritual being trying to bring light to the world I’m a beacon for those who are seeking light AND those who don’t want light to shine. I was reminded of a few lines originally from the poem Rise Again (Night to Dawn)  in my book Resist Persist.

 

“Midnight in the garden of my inner world

Wrestle woman! Fight back! I yell

Lips unparted, as I crawl through hell”

 

This experience showed me several things and put me on the path to shifting my own consciousness so that what was plaguing me would be gone. Something had to give. I began working the three tools that form the foundation for Creating Miracles after my near breakdown. I didn’t know if or how it would work – only that I needed it to. I couldn’t continue crying myself to sleep and having thoughts about quitting.

Excerpt Dancing with Demons

I realized that lightworkers threaten the dark side. While I won’t go into the how;, the goal is to keep us from walking in our power. The idea of being attacked pissed me off. It wasn’t the first time and because I’m stronger than I was a little kid, the attack was different but this time, I had other tools to fight back.

 

What I understand is that when we are under that kind of spiritual attack, we are distracted and divided. When you are in that state of  mind you are not able to use your full creative power and tap into the miraculous. Your energy is being used  up battling or being depleted by the energetic vampires. My latest book Protect and Clear with the Divine is the direct result of realizing that not everyone has the tools and may be able to pray those prayers and say those affirmations to protect what they care about and clear out the negative. How can I help people grow spiritually and manifest the life they want when they are constantly in this kind of battle?

 

I used the tools I share in Creating Miracles and within a few days was seeing results. My mood was lighter and I stopped questioning whether my life meant something in this reality. Spirit told me that there are others who needed the prayers and affirmations I’d been writing and putting together for myself, friends, and clients; because others were battling too.

 

I was hesitant at first. Honestly, there are those who think I am  strange already. Did I really want to add this on? The answer was an unequivocal yes, compounded by the message of a southern preacher I channeled for one of our Spirit Speaks sessions, called (Mama) Maybelle. She spoke about how too many of us don’t share our truth because of judgment from  man. She was right. I was convicted. I couldn’t keep what I know and what I am learning to myself. That would be selfish and certainly not in line with one of the affirmations used in Creating Miracles.

 

So when I was led to put together the Creating Miracles program and write the Protect and Clear with the Divine book my  purpose while two-fold was also very much in line with helping people have a better life. To do that, you must be free and open to the infinite possibilities of an infinite universe.

 

I am open to those infinite possibilities and want that for others as well. If you missed the pilot study, there will be a similar, but independent program at a discounted rate after the new year and you can also take advantage of the individual program. I recognize the power that lies within each and every one of us and when we access that power and channel it in ways that are right for us, we really can create miraculous experiences.

What is possible for you when you open up to the infinite possibilities of an infinite universe?

Are Your Prayers Answered?

Do you ever wonder if your prayers are answered? Do you get things showing up in your life that don’t feel like they are?

Ask and it is given.

It is done as you believe.

These two universal principles go together so beautifully but many people either don’t ask for what they truly desire or don’t believe it will be done as they have asked.

Scripture says (Mark 11:24), pray believing and you will have what you ask for. Ernest Holmes also used the bible as a reference point, referring to James 1:5-18 in regards to asking faith, believing. He says, “If we lack wisdom, we are to come to the Source of all knowledge and we shall receive it. But how are we to ask? In faith, believing. He further says, “Faith in God and in ourselves should be consciously generated.”

This is the example of the two principles coming together. Pray (ask) believing requires you to ask of the Universe and have faith it will be done. It also means that if you ask for that which is less than you deserve or truly desire, and you believe you will get what you ask for, you wind up with less than you really wanted. You must consciously generate questions that will align you with your heart’s true desires.

Now don’t get all mussed. This applies to all of us. There isn’t a person today who hasn’t asked for something, knowingly or unknowingly, that they really didn’t want. Or what seems like no answer is the actual answer. There are times we are grateful for unanswered prayers!

Much like a child asking their parents for something, sometimes it is yes…sometimes it is no…sometimes it is not now…and sometimes it is ‘if and when…’. You know if and when you clean your room you can go to the movies with your friends. If and when you work hard and save enough money you can buy a car.

Let’s consider something else. Quite often the issue isn’t with the answer at all, but with what we are asking.

What I want you to do is stop asking limiting questions. Don’t limit God. Don’t limit the Universe! Don’t limit yourself.

That means you have to stop asking for a job with company X that will cover your bills and start asking, “what lifestyle is possible and how can that show up for you?”

  • Stop asking for a husband and start asking, “what is possible for your personal fulfillment in a relationship?”
  • Stop asking for an apartment and start asking, “what is possible for you to have a home that makes you feel safe and comfortable, and is better than you can imagine?”

Do you see the pattern here? How often do we limit our possibilities by placing our own mental barriers on the questions and prayers we ask? What would be possible if you removed those limitations and let the Universe work out the details?

That would be better than you can imagine. Now, how does it get any better than that?
