Mocha Angels 365. Day 33.

“Lean not on your own understanding” means not to only trust what you perceive with your five senses. There is more to this planet than what you see, hear, feel, taste, and smell. Your understanding of life is increased by the gift from God: intuition.

This sixth sense is your Higher Power guiding you in the right direction. Intuition is always your first thought about a situation. The thought is usually quick and fleeting. Sometimes intuition is felt in your body, a la “I had a gut feeling about……”

Listening to your intuition is a skill to be cultivated in order for you to trust it. That’s why meditation or even quiet time with no media distractions is helpful. They both teach you to listen to your own inner wisdom.

Mantra: I trust my intuition today.

Mocha Angels 365. Day 27.

Hope is the last thing to die. When all hope is gone, that’s when people check out of life.

Hope is the emotion that keeps us hanging on even when we are bone tired. When the money is gone, there’s no food in the house, addiction has us in it’s grip, grief has us crying every night, children are sick, collection notices are in the mailbox, or layoffs just occurred, we continue to have hope. Without hope, we wouldn’t take a chance on love, bear children, or continue to live. Hope is the belief that life will get better and improve.

Hope is a sister to faith which is the evidence of things unseen. Faith is a cousin to compassion which is seeing the God in the other person. Love is the parent of all three. If your hope is fading, contact someone you love, or who you know loves you. Trust and believe love will lead you back.

Mocha Angels 365. Day 3.

Believe in yourself as you believe in God. Believe in God as you believe in yourself. With this belief, you cannot fail…in anything. You and God are co-creators of your life.

Show your faith by believing you are a powerful being who creates your life with thoughts, words, and actions. Consider each day a work of art, and you are the one painting the canvas.

Mantra:

I create a work of art today.
