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,

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,

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?

Why Protect?

Why Protect?

(from Protect and Clear with the Divine)

“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he doesn’t exist.” Although a quote for a movie, The Usual Suspects, it speaks volumes to the condition of the world today.

For some of you this may not be hard to imagine and for others it may be a stretch. I invite you to stretch with me and loosen up tense muscle of the mind before we begin. I also invite you to consider something. You don’t’ have to believe me or agree, but I ask that you will only consider.

What if it’s true? That somehow, mankind has been convinced that the devil doesn’t exist. What if the demons in religious stories do exist? What if in the same way there are those who work for the light,  there must also be those who work for the dark, as the law of polarities suggest? What if this isn’t a contradiction to new age or new thought philosophy, but rather, simply a clarification?

What if there are spiritual beings that have the free will like we do, to turn their back on the Divine Source? We do it all the time – forgetting who we truly are or covering the light within, and going along with what may be popular because it’s easy. What if there are beings in spirit that aren’t so different than the beings we know exist in the flesh? We are familiar with those individuals that commit heinous acts against their fellow man. It isn’t a far stretch to think similar beings are in spirit.

Imagine there are beings like this operating from that low-level mindset and most base nature but without the confines of a physical body to limit them.

What if they understood how much power they have and how to use it? Think of those criminal geniuses who build empires, even if they happen to illegal empires.

There are those in the spiritual realm who were once angels and for whatever reasons lost the connection with the Divine. In truth, they can reestablish it, plug back in and have that Light inside them go from a flicker to a flame. The same is true for us. As above, so below.

Something in their world has them convinced they can’t go back, shouldn’t go back, or that the light can’t be trusted. Something wants to keep them in the dark. When we are angry, hurt, afraid, and hungry for love as people, what do we do? We lash out. We try to bring other people to the level we are; partly as validation and partly so that we aren’t alone. When we aren’t alone in how we are being, we feel our behavior is okay.

You, the human you, understands this.

By the very nature of your being alive and on this planet today, you are only a few years away from your last between lives experience and being directly connected with spiritual beings of Light. Some of our fellow humans never remember their true nature while they are alive on this planet. Some remember early and some later in life.

What if it had been millennia or even hundreds of years? Might it be harder to remember your true self? You see what we experience here on this planet and in the third dimensional realm of our bodies, minds, and spirits has a similar experience in the spiritual realm. As above, so below.

Why am I talking about this?

I want you to walk in your full power as spiritual beings inhabiting a human form. You are a spiritual being having a human experience. That means you are both spirit and human – a combination that allows us the power of spirit and the pleasure of this physical existence.

However, there are, from my personal understanding of the spiritual world, forces that would like to keep you from being awakened to and walking fully in the power of the Divine. These forces will sabotage you and do whatever they are able to do to keep you off your life mission and path.

As I wrote in my poem Dancing with Demons

Following in step, I do not dance alone

I am reminded for what I was born

How I almost fell for the twisted lie

Trying to convince me to shrink

 

Yes, they want you to slog through life, spiritually asleep, operating from the carnal level only. Or perhaps have you caught up and trapped by manufactured systems of religion and society designed to control behavior and minimize independent thought. Why? So that you don’t realize how much truth is available through ancient writing and even embedded in popular culture, but not being taught in a way that we receive it.

If you are under psychic attack or in spiritual warfare; if the dark forces have targeted you then I say, Fight Back! Fight back with your mind by elevating your thinking and energy whenever you are able and by being covered with the protection and clearing available with Divine Light and Love.

When you begin to clear away the negative energy around you, your family, your home, and your work and protect yourself and all of these areas from further attack, you lessen the power ill-meaning spirits can have. Remember like attracts like.

Vibrate higher and make yourself less of a target.

On the other hand, as I have seen as well, those who shine bright are like beacons in the night. The dark forces are attracted and either want to be a part of your light or make it dim.

Therefore it is just as important for lightworkers and those who consider themselves spiritually strong to clear their energetic fields and the spaces they use as well as protect themselves and all they care about.

So what if the things you suspect but aren’t popular to speak on, actually are going on?

Don’t worry and don’t fear. You were created in the image and likeness of God, with great power. You are here to do what you came to do and nothing seen or unseen can stop you, unless you let it.

Recognize the Divine that flows through you.

Honor the Divine that is manifest in you.

Know that the Divine wants to experience this world as you. You and every other person are a physical manifestation of an aspect of the Divine God. You are a beautiful unique drop in the ocean that is God.

Now, shall we protect and clear so you can begin living your life in full power?

I’ll say Amen to that!
