images-4It’s been so long I had to wipe the virtual cobwebs off this Blog!!!

Where to begin?  Well, lemme start by sharing a mostly untold Alaina-ism with you:

I HAVE A ONE TRACK MIND!!!  And while I’m out here I might as well share two: I’M SLOW… AS THE DICKENS!!!

It’s true, I can only do one thing (well) at a time and then, when it really matters to me, it takes me a looooong time to even get that done.

So the one thing I’ve been off the radar doing is searching for & building a business around a model that works for me & my gifts, my clients & my message.

I know it was a bold decision to do it that way.  The attitude can sometimes be “how dare you go off the radar in the time of the reign of social media?”

Folk tell us daily (in real time) where they’re having breakfast, and they follow that up with instagram selfies of them leaning into plates of bacon & eggs.  It becomes a real life challenge to stick to and honor your process for making progress when it doesn’t match the mainstream.

Honoring your path takes lots of centering, and well, I’ll say  it again… boldness.

And then, you have to trust…  

Trust that what God has put in you is worth the time alone you’ll have to take to process, sort & develop it.  That the people pulling on you to “put it out there” prematurely (shoot, the part of YOU pulling on you to put it out there prematurely) and those whose glances & energy seem to be demanding that you “DO” before you’re ready to “BE” aren’t righter than your intuitive knowing that you have to take your time.

I love using the conception & birthing process as an analogy when it comes conceptualizing the conceiving of, incubation period for, development of, being transformed by the process of carrying and birthing out a dream.

And then you have raise it with love… cultivate it with the kind of protective attention that still leaves it ample room to grow into its entelechy all on its own.  And then developing, more and more, in the keen sensitivity to its nuances in ways you never had in you before.

A trip down memory lane….

I remember being in first grade taking my very first assessment test.  I was told it would “rank and score my ability to learn”.  I scored “poor”…wound up in the very last group.

Not because I couldn’t do the work, but because I had an intelligence the test was not designed to score.

I’m a woman who has to “feel the work” and when the judgement of judges are present, all I can feel is the discomfort, unpredictability and insecurity of that.

I don’t even begin to get it together until after I’ve taken the time to sit with/in the environment, soak it all up, including the people in it, their vibes.  Feel free to give me content to learn after I’m done with that part all you like, but do it before and I’ll come out looking stupid every time.

Comfort, safety and trust are the pillars that hold up my world.

By the end of the first grade, I’d felt my way up from the very bottom to the second group from the top.  I stayed there, comfortable & safe.  See, I had my own internal assessment practice going on by then.  Because I trusted that I could easily handle whatever  challenges showed up, I remained in the 2nd from the top all the way through school- all the way through life, really….

Till about a year ago when I (really) made the conscious decision to trust God enough to allow the ‘spirit of entrepreneurism’ to challenge me out of my comfort zone & expand me in so many ways I never even knew I could grow.

Over and over again, I was denied rights of passage on this part of my journey until I faced my limiting beliefs around money, my worth & value, and my authority to give myself permission to be more visible, and vocal, and openly shine in my pursuit to becoming more of the woman God had truly made me to be-

Denied rights of passage until I’d been coached in practices that helped me to move past both the judges & the judgments…

To cultivate an inner security based on who I am in Christ that didn’t waiver or depend on outside circumstances and people.

It’s time to look this next phase of my personal development & spiritual growth through entrepreneurism right smack dab in the face.  And it’s good.  My business structure is set & ready, and so am I.

I know who I’m speaking to & working for:  She is me from any of the emotional & mental stages I’ve been since God first called me out nearly 10 years ago up till now.  She’s a Believer.  A Christian woman who’s ready to stop hiding out in the places of false security that have grown to small for her.

She’s actually aching to break free and start creating breakthroughs and transformation in her life… to do more, see more, become more until her reality begins to match what’s been going on inside her dreams & heart’s desire for years.

She is gifted and talented, and she has passions and interests that far exceed what she’s currently giving herself permission to explore.  She’s ready to stop hiding out in an unfulfilling life and career so she can begin (finally) reclaiming her power & reframing her past to reinvent herself into the fully expressed, confident, purpose driven woman God created her to be.

Solitary confinement is ok sometimes.  It’s even necessary for a season… but then you have to come out.  Your light was not created to exist under a bushel… your inner fire & light was created to be seen.

It’s time.  It’s safe.  It’s purposed.

So if that’s you, click here to visit my new website.

The Miracle of Movement (a poem)

Baby steps count 
And as you number don’t just count them 
Understand them… 
That they are the most exhilarating. 
 
First steps taken toward a dream 
Embed themselves in heart in such a special way.  
 
And if it were remembered to leave something not taken 
On the altar for granted 
Surely those first steps would be the moments we’d all leave.  
 
The moment when courage and curiosity mixed and made
A stumbling bumbling attempt into something like 
Nothing less than activated faith.  
 
After awhile now we walk it, hop it, skip it, jog it, 
Run it at top speed in any combination of these 
With no wonder…
Barely any thought to all the covered ground
But in the beginning we prayed 
Out loud and silent 
For the ample balance it took to take 
Those first steps 
And…  
 
Oh my Lord, didn’t we see You 
Use our guts to move our feet 
And make the miracle of movement!

How To Win In Life? The Answer Might Surprise You!

Unknown-7What does it mean to be first?  Well, it depends on who you ask.  An athlete will tell you being first is about being the strongest, the fastest, and the best prepared.

The rich might piggyback off the preparedness piece saying you must be focused, organized, and driven.

Choose and poll anyone at the top of their field and they’ll have a barrage of things you MUST do to be first in that industry and more than likely there’ll be spill over.  Key components that segue, easily transition with little or no hiccups, into your line of work.

Snip here, swop out a couple concepts there, add a little elbow grease for good measure, of course, and voila….  You’ve got a formula for success, baby!

But have we forgotten to poll God for the survey?  

What does He say about being first?  Nothing about strength or nimbleness of hand or foot?  And how could He forget to include focus, organization, and drive?

Common sense shoulda tapped God on the shoulder and reminded Him He was embarrassing Himself by leaving out these most important factors of being first, greatest,  VIP indeed, head honcho / honchess, premiere, premiere, premiere.

Because that’s what we want in this society, don’t we?  We want to be first.  The desire is so prevalent, one could almost call it natural… Is it?

images-3Are we born wanting to be first?

I think we are.  There’s an interesting characteristic called “chosen-ness” that’s woven into the heart at birth.

Babies inherently know they’re chosen.  They don’t just feel it, they have a want and need for their chosen-ness to be demonstrated.  They want to be touched ’cause they’re cute; watched ’cause they’re doing something new or great; picked up and rocked when they want some closer love.  And when we’re emotionally healthy parents and adults, we serve them in all those ways, lovingly.

We do it because we know what they know, that they’re chosen.

But babies grow up.  We certainly did.  Grew up out of the cuteness to the point where the attention either stopped altogether or became the attention of an inappropriate ilk.  We weren’t watched anymore when we did things great and new… ignored altogether or either glared at until our confidence to do things great or new was seared away.  Who held us, who rocked us anymore once we were too big and awkward to receive the closer kind of love?

Chosen seems like it dies somewhere on the bridge between born and born again.

But God gives chosen back…

I bless Him for what He promised Abraham.  Through their friendship we learn the importance of “chosen” in the life of a born again Believer and in the sight of God.  It’s not just okay for you to want it and long for it, chosen is your birthright.

And for those who are born again, to live from the seat of this promise is the best decision one could ever make.

The promise of chosen-ness is this:

Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.  Genesis 12: 1-3

Pretty deep, isn’t it?  God is telling us through His words to Abram, that if you’re going to experience the fruit of what it means to be chosen (blessed by God) you’re going to have to leave the places of familiarity.  Those places where we are most apt to stay and fight for the right to be loved and recognized are the very places we have to surrender to God in trust that He will recognize us, multiply us, exalt our name to greatness.

Why’s it so hard in the first place?

I don’t know that I’ll ever understand why it’s so difficult to detach from the emotional dependency of being respected & recognized from the familial unit.

What I do know is that staying unhealthily connected to it becomes the death grip that threatens to smother potential before it ever even recognizes its chance.

In Matthew 13:57, because the people of Nazareth were offended by His wisdom and teachings and rejected Him, Jesus said this…

A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and in his own house.

And don’t let self doubt attack you there saying you’re not a prophet, either.  A prophet is a Believer, a speaking, praying, testifying witness of the ways and wonders of Christ.  Period.

So you’re a Believer.  You’re a prophet of God.  And you’re chosen.

So you want to be first AND God has Promised to exalt you into a great nation, with a great name, blessed to be a blessing, blessing the families of the earth through YOU…

But what will you need to do to make your desire and God’s Promise manifest?

What do you need to do to be first?

God says SERVE…    Unknown-6              

In the NLT of the Scriptures Jesus told his disciples this as they began to argue with one another about who would be the first and greatest amongst them:

“In this world the kings and great men lord it over their people, yet they are called ‘friends of the people.’  But among you it will be different.  Those who are the greatest among you should take the lowest rank, and the leader should be like a servant.  Who is more important, the one who sits at the table or the one who serves?  The one who sits at the table, of course.  But not here! For I am among you as one who serves.

As Believers sold out to Christ, the way we contribute to a great and marvelous experience in the story of our lives is to trust God enough to allow Him to lead us away from the familiar.

I say this all the time, “following God doesn’t always make common sense!!!”

Common sense is based on common senses…

Christianity is based on walk by faith, not by sight TRUST in God.

Unknown-5So as Believers sold out to Christ, the way we contribute to a great and marvelous experience in the story of our lives is to be willing to go blindly AND be willing to serve Him as we go.

Don’t let this world’s ways, nor your self doubt tell you that the people who sit at the table you are serving at right now are further ahead than you.

There is no common sense to this thing… that table might be yours.  So serve gladly.  And when the tables turn, fix your mind right now to never forget that serving is what got you there….

One last Scripture I’d like to share for anyone saying to yourself God’s promise was to Abraham, it has nothing to do with me:

God gave the promises to Abraham and his child.  And notice that the Scripture doesn’t say “to his children,” as if it meant many descendants. Rather, it says “to his child”-and that, of course, means Christ.    ~Galatians 3:16, NLT

Beloved, you’re covered!  You’re chosen!  You’re GOING TO WIN… SO GET GOING in Jesus’ Name!!!  Amen:)

Making Christ’s Passion Ours

Unknown-3Yesterday was Palm Sunday.  The day the Lord came riding into Jerusalem on a virgin donkey.  He was praised and lifted up on that day for being the King of the Jews.  But then…

I often think about the contrasting feelings and opinions that come so naturally from living in this suit of flesh we do, and I wonder if we Christians of today might have been among those who cried “Hosanna” yesterday and “crucify Him” today.

People don’t like not receiving what they have their minds set on receiving.  The Jerusalemites (my liberties taken there:) expected the Lord to set up a new political system.  They wanted Him to act as King in a way they understood.  When He didn’t egos were crushed, expectations were dashed, flesh was denied and as a result, emotions flared hot and hateful.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever (Hebrews 13:8).  

Let’s examine ourselves during this week of our Lord’s Passion.  What heart issues has He been working on you with?  

Perhaps on good days, when all your emotional frequencies are inline with those around you, you do cry out “Hosanna”, shouting praises pristine and clear.  But on those days that haven’t feel so good, have you moved around in a posture that lacked any expression of hope in God’s sovereignty, acknowledgment of His presence, or faith in His Word?

Remember now that the Holy Spirit lives on the inside of us and is easily grieved.  “Crucify Him” doesn’t have to be a blatant spoken word as it was in that day.  It can just as easily be a word NOT spoken.

In fact, amongst us present day Christians, “crucify Him” is pretty much exclusively shouted from the rooftops of our attitudes.  

We have been given a remarkable gift.  The procession has begun.  This is the week of our Lord’s walking toward the Passion He sweat Blood over, agonizing, even crying out to God to experience the Passover He was for Himself.  And He did all it for us: for the cleansing, forgiveness of our sins.

Through His gift we have the opportunity to examine and submit ourselves unto His glorious resurrection.  Let’s walk with Him, aware, in that.

Sure, Christ has prayed to the Father for our forgiveness concerning the things we do not know, but I am wholeheartedly convinced that our ‘submission to’ and ‘search of’ self awareness for Christ’s sake likens to the highest praise.

God bless:)

A Recipe of Relief From Negative Emotions

images-1

Change is the seed of change.  Deep isn’t it?  How God made all things to rest in the seed of themselves.

Love and affection must be sown to be realized.  Forgiveness, friendship, generosity, any & all virtue has to openly be itself to even have the right to claim the light of day.

But what about the painful elements that exist in a life?  The tendency to feel abandoned, rejected, self piteous, used…?

When these and feelings like these have momentarily overgrown feelings of inclusion, acceptance, and strength what have we done to create that harvest?  And when we discover ourselves under the weight of these burdening beliefs, what can we do immediately to begin sowing ourselves out from underneath?

The Relief Recipe

1) Awareness/Realization

God made us with an ability He gave to no other living thing.  He created us with the capacity, if we’ll cultivate it, to see ourselves.  The fact that we’re thinkers, doers, and Be’ers only touches the tip of the iceberg of the creative capacity God’s placed within us.

When we are willing to sit with ourselves to “see inside” we discover that the greatest miracle of our minds is not expressed when we think, but that we can think about what we think about.  That little jewel right there, when strategically applied, can change your life at any given time on a dime.

2) Be Willing to Prophesy/Preach to Yourself

Self talk is powerful.  It matters the most.  Nothing anyone else has to say about you (good or bad) will stick or stain when you’ve cultivated the habit of speaking to & about yourself the things God has to say about you.

Faith confession examples:  

  • I am the righteousness of God through and by Christ Jesus.
  • I am the head and not the tail.
  • I shall lend to many nations and I shall not borrow.
  • By His stripes I am healed.
  • I am redeemed.
  • The enemy is under my feet.
  • I walk by faith and not by sight.
  • My Father God speaks to me and I heart His voice.
  • He is my Shepherd faithfully leading me in the way I should go.

3) Have Replacement Thoughts Ready

Brace yourself for this moment of personal transparency:

For years, I wanted to take a precision cutter and remove Philippians 4:8 from my Bible….

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  

That Scripture frustrated me to no end.  I would read it and read it and read it because I knew God had obviously put it there to offer peace and reassurance, but it just kept spinning me around in circles falling limp until one day…

I heard the voice of the Lord say “I’m not telling you to think on this Scripture, I’m telling you through the Scripture what to think on.”  Praise God!  I understood it clearly!!!

Do this:  Take each of the virtues from 4:8: truth, honesty, just, pure, lovely, etc.  Make lists of either Biblical accounts or ones from your own life that stand as examples of each virtue.

Concerning truth, for instance, write down ways you’ve seen God keep His word to you or someone else.  Those “proofs” are what you meditate on when you’re feeling down.  They’ll serve as the faith boosters you need to make it through the doubt/insecurity attack.

In the case that YOU are the one you happen to be down on, write down and remind yourself of past times when you successfully spoke a hard truth or followed through on something to completion.

Remember things reaped are only made up of things sown…

So harvests are controllable and also repeatable!!!

There is no reason for us to be sitting wallowing self piteously in depression & devastation.  Ever!  I mean, sure, we can (and to be honest, we often do) but we certainly don’t have to.

God has made us and equipped us with the tools to overcome the emotional attacks of the ego, the id, and the enemy.

Here’s a quick recap of how to defeat negative emotional attacks…:

  1. Cultivate self awareness.  When you can see yourself, you can lead yourself to higher ground.
  2. Use the Scripture as a framework to speak righteousness to yourself.  YOU are the prophet of your life.  Speak well and speak often of the God promised things pertaining to your present & your future. (Oh, yes, and say these things aloud!)
  3. Craft an arsenal of good thoughts using Philippians 4:8.  This will prepare and ready you to substitute thoughts of fear for faith; lies for truth; weakness for strength; health for disease; and ashes for loveliness.

Military soldiers fervently train to be effective on the battlefield because they know what’s coming…  Shouldn’t we?  Aren’t you ready to be ready with the spiritual weapons of warfare necessary to claim your victory?

Remember, change is the seed of change…so then allow me to leave you with this question:  Is it rational to be expecting any harvest of desired change without having sown the seeds?

The Coffee of Your Soul

images-1A young woman, Anna, was very distressed.  In her own words, she had been living on a treadmill of pain, disappointment, and discouragement.  Every time Anna thought herself to be on the verge of a breakthrough, a breakdown came instead.  

Key people in her life kept telling her to hope, but she was beginning to believe that hoping was her problem.  Anna decided that she’d be better off to just accept the status quo.  And if not better off, at least finished with all the heartache that comes from wanting the “more” that always seems so frustratingly out of reach.  

Anna was venting so freely at her mother’s one day that she hardly recognized her.  Still she listened to her daughter intently and compassionately.  When Anna came to the end of her complaint (which seemed to take forever) her mother invited her to come into the kitchen so she could watch her prepare something special.   

Anna was confused and quite a bit annoyed as she observed her mother silently filling three pots with water to bring them to a boil.  She’d always been a phenomenal cook so boiling water didn’t qualify in the least as something special from her kitchen.  Just when she was about to start demanding some kind of explanation Anna saw her add carrots to the first pot, an egg to the second, and coffee beans to the third.

Now she was really starting to get confused.  The ingredients didn’t even match.  What was she making besides Anna more and more frustrated.  The fact that her mother sat watching the boiling pots in total silence made the whole thing that much worse.  After 30 minutes or so had gone by, Anna was about to explode when her mother invited her to come “experience” the odd and supposedly special event.

“One by one, touch and taste all these ingredients, Anna dear.”  And so she did.  

“Describe what the cooking process did to the carrots,” her mother said.  Anna replied, “They’re mushy, too soft.  Didn’t hold up well at all.”  

“What about the egg?  What did the cooking process do to it,” her mother asked again.  Now Anna said, “Well you know it’s a hard boiled egg.  It’s completely hard in the center now.”  

Her mother’s voice was so level, “Now what about the coffee,”  “Oh, it’s delicious,” said Anna, and somehow that tasty taste had completely changed her mood.  “It’s flavorful.  We couldn’t have eaten the bitter coffee beans, in this case the boiling made it possible.  The boiling made it better.”

“Right now you seem to have the most in common with the carrots but which of the three would you rather be like?”  Her mother asked this question so gently, with so much love, Anna felt renewed.  

“The coffee beans.  I want to be like the coffee beans, Momma.”

How Do We Stand The Heat?

The best (and only) way for Anna and us to respond like the coffee beans, for us to become more flavorful, more aromatic, richer, and stronger with time, is to let ourselves stand God’s cooking process.

The carrot and the egg changed, true enough, but the coffee beans changed on a whole n’other level.  The coffee beans transformed.    

It’s our attitude about adversity that makes for our breaking, our hardening, or our transformation.  It’s how we see it (the adversity) and ourselves inside it.  It’s how we see God, too.  Will we hold tight to His promise to make us better for it, through it? 

The Challenge

I always say about this walk with God, that there are times when the hardest thing to do is nothing.  When we want to be delivered and have the power to do something towards that deliverance, but know in our hearts it’s something God wants us to go through, something we have to go through if we are ever to release our inner coffee.

And since it’s never difficult to do nothing when there’s nothing you can do, we won’t go too far into that point.  Just know this, that either way, if God has tied your hands in some area of your life right now, I pray that you hold on.  I pray you close your eyes and imagine, remember, that it’s Him in the kitchen regulating the heat, adding the spices, stirring up the pot.

And so the challenge is to trust that God won’t overcook you.  Of that, you have His “Word purified in the earth seven times” guarantee….so why not be grateful, patient, and hopeful as He boils out all the extra to release the rich aromatic coffee of your soul:-))

PS: I hope you don’t mind (and maybe even enjoyed) my personal adaptation of this familiar story…Thanks for reading and as always, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Blessings & Strength, Alaina:-)
