The Ego

Posted by Maria Certo on Monday, August 30, 2010,

There are negative and positive aspects of the ego self.

Its positive attributes can carry one through a discovery to cure a diease, run an entire nation or perform a surgery to save a life.
 
Without using part of your ego to accomplish such feats, one would not succeed.

The negative aspects of the ego can damage one's spirit.

It makes decisions for us that are not in our best interest.

The ego drives the material world, desires, self image and financial power.

When one allows the ego to take prece...

Centered

Posted by Maria Certo on Saturday, August 28, 2010,

Finding your center is something that is learned throughout life as things become imbalanced.

It is a process.

Life has a way of throwing punches that create distruptions.

In the midst of these difficult moments our center is lost.

Our energy leaves our body and travels to different places during the course of the day.

It may be lingering with a change that needs to happen, with a argument that
occurred earlier that morning with a loved one or a financial concern.

Beyond the Senses

Posted by Maria Certo on Wednesday, August 25, 2010,

Our five senses include sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.

We also have a sense of knowing or intuition that has not been catagorized within the five senses.

These senses grab our attention as information is continually coming into our energy field to be processed.

Let's begin with sight.

Sight is what the human eye sees.

It is also your conscious awareness in viewing life situations.

This sight is what changes confusion into clarity as wisdom is attained.

Sound of course is noises heard.

Silence

Posted by Maria Certo on Monday, August 23, 2010,

The silence is God whispering to your soul.

In the slience we connect with the deepest part of ourself.

To our soul.

The racing mind quiets. 

Muscles relax.

Emotions run deep and are released.

Respiration slows down.

The heart beats in a calm rhythm.

Bodily sensations are intensified.

Distractions are absent as thoughts are minimized.

Speaking out loud rests momentarily and the energy between you and God
becomes a clear channel of communication.

Prayers are heard as the intention is clear.

Identity

Posted by Maria Certo on Sunday, August 22, 2010,


Finding our identity is a long and difficult process.

We  struggle with who we are because confusion sets in.

The confusion comes from the world around us.

Throughout life, the messages from our upbringing, society and peers stays in the memory.

These messages are that of ideas, thoughts and feelings of how we should be.

Our family has one set of ideas based on their own needs.

Society tells us that we have to look and act a certian way to fit in with the mainstream. 

Our peers want us to be like th...

The Tunnel

Posted by Maria Certo on Saturday, August 21, 2010,



The tunnel is the space we pass through as we reach for emotional healing.

We enter into the tunnel as the wounds of the past open and ooze out the hurts of life.

These wounds include but are not exclusive to physical, mental, sexual or emotional abuse.

Other traumatic events in life such as a loss of a loved one or those who served in war carry
 these wounds with them.

When one suffers this form of abuse or trauma the emotional pain is profound.

During this period, an array of emotions are experi...

Loneliness

Posted by Maria Certo on Friday, August 20, 2010,

Loneliness is a place within where one feels unloved.

Where does this lonely feeling come from?

It arises when there is a lack of self-love.

When one doesn't love themselves fully, loneliness shows up at the front door
of the heart.

One begins to seek external experiences to fill the void.

One may gamble excessively, take on addictive choices with alcohol, drugs, sex, food or shopping.

One begins to attach to these actions and falls deeper into the denial of self.

As one goes deeper into this denial,...

Compassion

Posted by Maria Certo on Wednesday, August 18, 2010,

Compassion is the channel of grace.

When we give compassion to those who suffer emotional, physical or mental pain, a
light is ignited and its flame shines brightly.

This light lives in us all.

It is this light that heals those who are hurting.

When love is withheld, the light burns out.

It burns out because judgement showed itself.

Judgement is the polar opposite energy of compassion.

Judgement is heavy and dark.

Compassion is glowing and weightless.

Life and Death

Posted by Maria Certo on Monday, August 16, 2010,

Life and Death are interchangable.

They are one in the same.

To some this may sound absurd.

They take on different meanings depending on how we view them.

Death to some may mean the end to all things.

Death for others may mean the wonderous and joyous reunion with God and with all those they have loved.

Life to some may mean difficulty, challenge, suffering and arduous work to reach
a higher level of self to experience joy and love.

 This the Truth of Life.

When we honor our soul's requirements, our angels and guides celebrate.

They celebrate the beauty that each of us illuminates.

Everyone has angels and guides to protect them.

Present Time

Posted by Maria Certo on Saturday, August 14, 2010,

Remaining in present time is extremely difficult to attain.

Why is this?

The mind keeps us in the past or the future.

This creates blocks within our energy.

When our energy stays in the past or in the future, soul growth becomes impossible.

The past is where reflection takes place.

It is the past that teaches wisdom on so many levels.

When the soul lesson was not learned, we hold onto the thoughts of the past.

We constantly review what has happened and how it could have gone differently.

Heart/Mind Connection

Posted by Maria Certo on Saturday, August 14, 2010,

The heart-mind connection is important to the way we manage our lives.

The heart tells us one thing while the mind tells us another.

Why does this happen?

We are always receiving messages from God to follow our heart and intuition.

We ignore these Divine messages as the mind takes over creating negative thoughts that have no basis in reality.

The reality of fear.

As soon as fear enters into the mind, the heart turns off.

At this point, whatever the heart was telling you, no longer exists as truth.

Nurturing Self

Posted by Maria Certo on Wednesday, August 11, 2010,

Nurturing the self is by far one of the most important aspects of giving love to your spirit.

Neglecting your inner needs creates moments in life where one becomes resentful and apathetic.

We feel resentment because all of our energy is being directed into nurturing others
and there is no time left over for ourself.

The lack of interest in self is depleted as precious vital energy has been given away.

There is nothing left inside to foster are own interests.

We are taught to believe that giving to ...

When one believes deep within all the cells of their being that what he or she is seeking will

However, if this belief is mixed with fear, then the desired outcome will fail.

Why is this?

Our thoughts carry an energy that is transmitted through wavelengths out into the universe.

Every thought we have is recorded within us and into the universe.

These thoughts are not only created through the mind but hold a memory in the cells of our emotional heart.

When we find forgiveness in our hearts, a blockage is cleared and we feel lifted.

The Victim

Victim energy is repressive.

When one remains the victim after suffering through life's adversities, their
soul's progress to growth is hindered immensely.

If one continues to blame their conditions on past hurts, moving forward
becomes extremely difficult.

Such thoughts run through the mind and heart after being bruised emotionally.

Why me?

I don't deserve this.

My life is awful.

Nothing good ever comes my way.

If this didn't happen, I would be happy.

Expectation

Expectation is something that one feels entitled to by others.

We create anger, hurt and entrappment to those whom we place these expectations upon.

When expectation is placed on you, what feelings come into play?

Do you feel backed up against the wall or forced into something that is not in your heart?

Do feelings of resentment or irritation arise in you?

When we expect something from someone, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment.

Where does expectation come from?

Reflection

Reflection is a beautiful way to look back and see what has been processed
 forth into the conscious awareness.

It serves such purpose with the existence of life.

As we reflect back onto the roads we have traveled throughout life, an
awakening enters into the heart and mind.

A realization is brought to our attention.

This realization kept the memory strong so
that an insight into self would occur.

We all have moments where we look back at ourself and say,

Judgement

Posted by Maria Certo on Saturday, August 7, 2010, In : Fear 

Judgement is based out of fear.

Why do others place judgement on race, moral choice and sexual preferences?

The answer comes from fear of the unknown, differences in others and fear of change.

If one were to accept these changes and differences and embrace the unknown, a shift would occur. 

This would involve having to delve deep within and face the fears that keep one safe and in control.

This is a challenge that one does not want to venture into.

These offerings may include new opportunties, mending of relationships, new friendships of love and companionship, insight, inspiration, awareness into self and freedom.

These are just a few things that will come our way as we allow our life to unfold naturally.

When we force things to go our way, we create roadblocks on our journey.

Control

Control is a safe haven for our fears.

What two things in life cause us the most fear?

Relationships and our means to financial security.

We want to control our own enviroment so we can protect our fears.

When we are in relationships, we have many insecurites.
We fear whether we will be loved or rejected if we give our heart away.

In work, we fear we may not have the skill or experience that is needed to fulfill its
requirements. Or have enough money to support the basic needs of life.

Attachment

Posted by Maria Certo on Tuesday, August 3, 2010,

When we attach ourselves to desires, we ultimately push them away.

The more we want something, the less chance we will receive it.

Why does this happen?

Our thoughts are comprised of energy.

As we send this thought energy of "wanting" out to the universe,
it responds accordingly and gives us more of that "wanting" energy in return.

The energy of desire comes from our ego self.

Our ego attaches to this certain something and convinces us that if we obtain this,
we will be fulfilled.

Detachment frees us...

Time

Time

What is time really?

We base our existence on time.

It is time to wake up, time to go to work, time to eat,
time to socialize, time to rest, time to play, or time to sleep.

We, as a whole, have placed time into catagories so we may remain in our comfort zone as we go through life.

Time is so much more than a collection of scheduled duties to be completed in a calender year.

Time is Infinite.

It always IS.

When we chase time, we lose out on life's precious moments.

We either look into the past and ...

Courage

Courage is something that we gain throughout life when we
have been faced with immense challenges.

These challenges teach us how to be courageous.

The choice is ours.

Will we choose courage or will choose to escape?

What does courage look like?

It presents us with experiences that from the outside, look impossible to attain.

What does escape look like?

It gives us unwanted desires to fill up our needs and hide from our true self.

When we choose courage, our soul rejoices as we are awakened to the str...

Posted by Maria Certo on Tuesday, August 3, 2010,

When we attach ourselves to desires, we ultimately push them away.

The more we want something, the less chance we will receive it.

Why does this happen?

Our thoughts are comprised of energy.

As we send this thought energy of "wanting" out to the universe,
it responds accordingly and gives us more of that "wanting" energy in return.

The energy of desire comes from our ego self.

Our ego attaches to this certain something and convinces us that if we obtain this,
we will be fulfilled.

Detachment frees us...

Time

Posted by Maria Certo on Monday, August 2, 2010,

Time

What is time really?

We base our existence on time.

It is time to wake up, time to go to work, time to eat,
time to socialize, time to rest, time to play, or time to sleep.

We, as a whole, have placed time into catagories so we may remain in our comfort zone as we go through life.

Time is so much more than a collection of scheduled duties to be completed in a calender year.

Time is Infinite.

It always IS.

When we chase time, we lose out on life's precious moments.

We either look into the past and ...

Courage

Posted by Maria Certo on Sunday, August 1, 2010,

Courage is something that we gain throughout life when we
have been faced with immense challenges.

These challenges teach us how to be courageous.

The choice is ours.

Will we choose courage or will choose to escape?

What does courage look like?

It presents us with experiences that from the outside, look impossible to attain.

What does escape look like?

It gives us unwanted desires to fill up our needs and hide from our true self.

When we choose courage, our soul rejoices as we are awakened to the str...

The Ego

Posted by Maria Certo on Monday, August 30, 2010,

There are negative and positive aspects of the ego self.

Its positive attributes can carry one through a discovery to cure a diease, run an entire nation or perform a surgery to save a life.
 
Without using part of your ego to accomplish such feats, one would not succeed.

The negative aspects of the ego can damage one's spirit.

It makes decisions for us that are not in our best interest.

The ego drives the material world, desires, self image and financial power.

When one allows the ego to take prece...

Centered

Posted by Maria Certo on Saturday, August 28, 2010,

Finding your center is something that is learned throughout life as things become imbalanced.

It is a process.

Life has a way of throwing punches that create distruptions.

In the midst of these difficult moments our center is lost.

Our energy leaves our body and travels to different places during the course of the day.

It may be lingering with a change that needs to happen, with a argument that
occurred earlier that morning with a loved one or a financial concern. 

Notice where you are leaking this ...

Beyond the Senses

Posted by Maria Certo on Wednesday, August 25, 2010,

Our five senses include sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.

We also have a sense of knowing or intuition that has not been catagorized within the five senses.

These senses grab our attention as information is continually coming into our energy field to be processed.

Let's begin with sight.

Sight is what the human eye sees.

It is also your conscious awareness in viewing life situations.

This sight is what changes confusion into clarity as wisdom is attained.

Sound of course is noises heard.

Sound al...

Silence

Posted by Maria Certo on Monday, August 23, 2010,

The silence is God whispering to your soul.

In the slience we connect with the deepest part of ourself.

To our soul.

The racing mind quiets. 

Muscles relax.

Emotions run deep and are released.

Respiration slows down.

The heart beats in a calm rhythm.

Bodily sensations are intensified.

Distractions are absent as thoughts are minimized.

Speaking out loud rests momentarily and the energy between you and God
becomes a clear channel of communication.

Prayers are heard as the intention is clear.

In the silence ...

Identity

Posted by Maria Certo on Sunday, August 22, 2010,


Finding our identity is a long and difficult process.

We  struggle with who we are because confusion sets in.

The confusion comes from the world around us.

Throughout life, the messages from our upbringing, society and peers stays in the memory.

These messages are that of ideas, thoughts and feelings of how we should be.

Our family has one set of ideas based on their own needs.

Society tells us that we have to look and act a certian way to fit in with the mainstream. 

Our peers want us to be like th...

The Tunnel

Posted by Maria Certo on Saturday, August 21, 2010,



The tunnel is the space we pass through as we reach for emotional healing.

We enter into the tunnel as the wounds of the past open and ooze out the hurts of life.

These wounds include but are not exclusive to physical, mental, sexual or emotional abuse.

Other traumatic events in life such as a loss of a loved one or those who served in war carry
 these wounds with them.

When one suffers this form of abuse or trauma the emotional pain is profound.

During this period, an array of emotions are experi...

Loneliness

Posted by Maria Certo on Friday, August 20, 2010,

Loneliness is a place within where one feels unloved.

Where does this lonely feeling come from?

It arises when there is a lack of self-love.

When one doesn't love themselves fully, loneliness shows up at the front door
of the heart.

One begins to seek external experiences to fill the void.

One may gamble excessively, take on addictive choices with alcohol, drugs, sex, food or shopping.

One begins to attach to these actions and falls deeper into the denial of self.

As one goes deeper into this denial,...

Compassion

Posted by Maria Certo on Wednesday, August 18, 2010,

Compassion is the channel of grace.

When we give compassion to those who suffer emotional, physical or mental pain, a
light is ignited and its flame shines brightly.

This light lives in us all.

It is this light that heals those who are hurting.

When love is withheld, the light burns out.

It burns out because judgement showed itself.

Judgement is the polar opposite energy of compassion.

Judgement is heavy and dark.

Compassion is glowing and weightless.

How many times have you witnessed someone pass a h...

Life and Death

Posted by Maria Certo on Monday, August 16, 2010,

Life and Death are interchangable.

They are one in the same.

To some this may sound absurd.

They take on different meanings depending on how we view them.

Death to some may mean the end to all things.

Death for others may mean the wonderous and joyous reunion with God and with all those they have loved.

Life to some may mean difficulty, challenge, suffering and arduous work to reach
a higher level of self to experience joy and love.

 This the Truth of Life.

The soul must go through life to seek all it...

Honor

Posted by Maria Certo on Monday, August 16, 2010,

Honoring yourself and others generates a beautiful gold light.

Feel the quality of the color gold.

It carries a shiny, bright, warm, glittery, strong and centered energy with it.

When we honor our soul's requirements, our angels and guides celebrate.

They celebrate the beauty that each of us illuminates.

Everyone has angels and guides to protect them.

Our angels try to get our attention when we find ourselves in a situations where

honor is not being considered.

How many times have you been treated ba...

Present Time

Posted by Maria Certo on Saturday, August 14, 2010,

Remaining in present time is extremely difficult to attain.

Why is this?

The mind keeps us in the past or the future.

This creates blocks within our energy.

When our energy stays in the past or in the future, soul growth becomes impossible.

The past is where reflection takes place.

It is the past that teaches wisdom on so many levels.

When the soul lesson was not learned, we hold onto the thoughts of the past.

We constantly review what has happened and how it could have gone differently.

The same thin...

Heart/Mind Connection

Posted by Maria Certo on Saturday, August 14, 2010,

The heart-mind connection is important to the way we manage our lives.

The heart tells us one thing while the mind tells us another.

Why does this happen?

We are always receiving messages from God to follow our heart and intuition.

We ignore these Divine messages as the mind takes over creating negative thoughts that have no basis in reality.

The reality of fear.

As soon as fear enters into the mind, the heart turns off.

At this point, whatever the heart was telling you, no longer exists as truth.

It...

Truths Verses Non Truths

Posted by Maria Certo on Friday, August 13, 2010,

What are Truths?

They are something that cannot be dimissed by anyone because they are God Directed.

What are Non Truths?

Non Truths are ruled by society by men and women alike.

Which Truth do we accept for guidance in daily life?

This will depend on where your energy resides.

Does it reside with society based thoughts or ideas or does it reside in a place where intuitively you know that
a thought or a idea that is being presented does not connect with the vibration of what is inside your energy sys...

Nurturing Self

Posted by Maria Certo on Wednesday, August 11, 2010,

Nurturing the self is by far one of the most important aspects of giving love to your spirit.

Neglecting your inner needs creates moments in life where one becomes resentful and apathetic.

We feel resentment because all of our energy is being directed into nurturing others
and there is no time left over for ourself.

The lack of interest in self is depleted as precious vital energy has been given away.

There is nothing left inside to foster are own interests.

We are taught to believe that giving to ...

Believe

Posted by Maria Certo on Wednesday, August 11, 2010,

When one believes deep within all the cells of their being that what he or she is seeking will

become a reality, manifestation will occur.

However, if this belief is mixed with fear, then the desired outcome will fail.

Why is this?

Our thoughts carry an energy that is transmitted through wavelengths out into the universe.

Every thought we have is recorded within us and into the universe.

These thoughts are not only created through the mind but hold a memory in the cells of our emotional heart.

Each ...

Forgiveness

Posted by Maria Certo on Tuesday, August 10, 2010,

"To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness."
Robert Muller

When we find forgiveness in our hearts, a blockage is cleared and we feel lifted.

As this heaviness is lifted,  we get ready to move forward with our life.

To forgive is to find compassion in all of humanities suffering.

Acknowledge the pain you have suffered through negative behaviors brought on
by oneself or by others and release the emotional hurts over to God...

The Victim

Posted by Maria Certo on Tuesday, August 10, 2010,

Victim energy is repressive.

When one remains the victim after suffering through life's adversities, their
soul's progress to growth is hindered immensely.

If one continues to blame their conditions on past hurts, moving forward
becomes extremely difficult.

Such thoughts run through the mind and heart after being bruised emotionally.

Why me?

I don't deserve this.

My life is awful.

Nothing good ever comes my way.

If this didn't happen, I would be happy.

Blaming others allows self-pity to hold on tightly...

Expectation

Posted by Maria Certo on Monday, August 9, 2010,


Expectation is something that one feels entitled to by others.

We create anger, hurt and entrappment to those whom we place these expectations upon.

When expectation is placed on you, what feelings come into play?

Do you feel backed up against the wall or forced into something that is not in your heart?

Do feelings of resentment or irritation arise in you?

When we expect something from someone, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment.

Where does expectation come from?

It arises from a place w...

Reflection

Posted by Maria Certo on Sunday, August 8, 2010, In : Conscious Awareness 

Reflection is a beautiful way to look back and see what has been processed
 forth into the conscious awareness.

It serves such purpose with the existence of life.

As we reflect back onto the roads we have traveled throughout life, an
awakening enters into the heart and mind.

A realization is brought to our attention.

This realization kept the memory strong so
that an insight into self would occur.

We all have moments where we look back at ourself and say,

"Who was that person"?  " Do I even know him o...

Judgement

Posted by Maria Certo on Saturday, August 7, 2010, In : Fear 

Judgement is based out of fear.

Why do others place judgement on race, moral choice and sexual preferences?

The answer comes from fear of the unknown, differences in others and fear of change.

If one were to accept these changes and differences and embrace the unknown, a shift would occur. 

This would involve having to delve deep within and face the fears that keep one safe and in control.

This is a challenge that one does not want to venture into.

It is safer to judge when one is filled with fear...

Patience

Posted by Maria Certo on Saturday, August 7, 2010,

Patience teaches us endurance.

When we are patient with what life is handing out in the moment, an offering will be given.

These offerings may include new opportunties, mending of relationships, new friendships of love and companionship, insight, inspiration, awareness into self and freedom.

These are just a few things that will come our way as we allow our life to unfold naturally.

When we force things to go our way, we create roadblocks on our journey.

Where does impatience come from?

Control

Posted by Maria Certo on Wednesday, August 4, 2010,

Control is a safe haven for our fears.

What two things in life cause us the most fear?

Relationships and our means to financial security.

We want to control our own enviroment so we can protect our fears.

When we are in relationships, we have many insecurites.
We fear whether we will be loved or rejected if we give our heart away.

In work, we fear we may not have the skill or experience that is needed to fulfill its
requirements. Or have enough money to support the basic needs of life.

As we walk thr...

Sleep-dreaming

Posted by Maria Certo on Wednesday, August 4, 2010,



Sleep is a fascinating function of the human body.

How often do we give this miraculous design a thought?

As we enter into total relaxation, our bodies are rejuvenating and rebuilding new cells.

Its design is perfection!

Without sleep, we would collapse and be non-functional.

While sleeping helps the body restore itself and gain strength during the evening hours,
sleep also brings us to dreamstate.

Dreamstate is yet another magnificent creation that allows the soul to awaken.

Prayer is the flow of Grace as one connects with God.

If one could see this flow of grace as it travels to the heavens,
it would resemble the most illuminating light of white-gold energy beaming its way through the universe
to meet with God.

When we meet with God through prayer, we surrender our soul and send forth gratitude for
all of our existence on planet earth.

As this gratitude is being sent to God through prayer, beautiful blessings are being given to us.
