Doors and More Doors

Door 5


Heavenly Doors…

What are the God-given doorways in your life?


Have you ever given much thought to the doors that the Lord might be opening in your life? Especially when you wait on him to call you, then as you truly listen to Him and proceed to take the courage to actually do what He asks of you? The LORD God Himself actually escorts you as you take the steps! If you commence to walking with Him you soon will be astonished with the incredible journey He will take you on! For me it has been truly grand!

As I become more and more obedient to Him, to His direction, the blessings just keep coming my way! I have been so busy these last few months experiencing the many doors He has opened unto me! I have been astounded by His abundance and blessing upon my life. All of the Holy Spirit directed connections, the new women He has placed in my life and all that we are up to together for Him is huge!

God has so much to bestow upon those who seek Him and seek His will. What perspective do you take as you begin to view the Heavenly Doors? Have you ever really thought about doors and the passageways as heavenly portals?

Do you choose to stay in the room with your ears plugged and the doors shut tightly all around you in order not to venture out?  Does that idea feel safer to you so that you do not have to take any risks?

What would it be like for you if you were to view the word risk and shift the perspective of it? Shift the viewpoint of RISK to FAITH?

  • Faithfully seeing a door as a heavenly portal opening up for you?
  • What doors are you keeping tightly shut that you know you should be opening?
  • What might be on the other side of the door should you open it?

In the verse above you see that as you listen to the calling of GOD you will be blessed! I am so amazed at the way He calls us forth to do His work! Until the end of time we must be listening to Him, listening to His voice, His Words of wisdom, His Words of direction, His Words of love.

His true desire is to bless us, not to cause us to fear Him or His calling on our lives.

I love the second part of this passage as we are instructed to watch DAILY at His doors. Not just every now and then, or once a month when we think about it, but every single day we are to be WAITING AND WATCHING at His doors, waiting for Him to bless us!

The thought of this is beautiful to me as I begin to become more and more aware of the doors that He is guiding me to walk through each and every day.

Picture the glow peeking through, radiating from underneath the door, beckoning you to come… to draw closer and closer to the door.

See yourself with your face up close to the door; you begin to peer through the opening seeing the lights illuminating!  You are filled with warmth and hope for the day!

You begin to rise, placing your hand upon the old antique door knob which juts out from the old wooden hewn door – leading to the heavenly places of God, as He calls you forth; you go… you go…

You journey on with expectancy from Him who leads…

On the amazing journey with you,

 LORD, how I love you, how I love your WORD!

Thank you so much for Your instruction, which is beautiful. You say to “shut the door.” This is sacred – good and holy, keeping all of the distractions away, uniting us – closer – deeper – granting wisdom and understanding, along with guidance and then peace.

Just what I need, what I yearn for – a closeness with You, your people – with me. I am blessed by Your love for me, Your desire is woven into me by Your creative hand, to be close – so close that there are no gaps – no room for wedges.

This is the place – the “closed door place” where I come to You, sometimes crawling on my hands and knees in desperation – thirsty and parched in great need, great pain – even great fears – with worry and needing Your wisdom, direction, comfort and peace that only You can provide.

Other times I come for prayer for the many needs of others, beseeching You to hear me for the sake of their needs and You listen – I trust. I trust. I trust.

Sometimes I simply come to glorify You, to praise you for who You are, for the miracles done in the lives of other and in my own life. To sing praises for my dear husband and my daughters and my sons-in-law, for my grands!

I thank you that you invite me to come to you and shut the doors to the outside world and open your heavenly doors, granting me the ability to enter into Your throne room!  Though your physical presence is “unseen” I still see You!

I see you in others working miracles, I see you in Your creation of the earth! I see You in all of your people, in all of the various flowers and trees and butterfly’s and moths and insects and animals and sunsets and sunrises – in the clouds – in the smiles, in the eyes of humans – in the eyes of cats and dogs…  I see you God – I love what I see.

I FEEL your presence, I experience you. I feel your love.

I experience your heart, your joy, your laughter, as well as your pain. Though I am aware that all of your emotions must run much wider and deeper than mine – for if I “felt” all that you felt I surely could not comprehend – nor handle it all… You are my God & King!

Your word in verse 6 says “you see what is done in ‘the secret place'” – thank you for seeing – thank you for allowing me to come to the “secret place.”

And if that’s not enough, You are a God who loves to reward us – especially when we grow closer to you – that in and of itself is a reward. I treasure this sacred gift of yours – given straight from your heart to mine.

Let me be one who always longs to come and shut the door to the world and open the heavenly doors in which You stand – waiting for me to enter.

Oh the majestic visions in my mind – you reveal so much to me! Your places of holiness are unmatched. I think about people living in chaos – opening all the wrong doors – trying to gain some semblance of satisfaction – but they fail to open the door to Your “Secret Place” – the place of prayer, where they find you and find answers.

If the world would just Open the Doors of their Bibles, they would find YOU! AND in You is all they long for… and them some! Oh LORD, I pray for all those that are seeking and searching… I pray that they stop opening the doors to excess and open the doors to moderation, closing the doors to addictions… and open the doors to peace, to settle down, be still and find your love. Stop opening the doors to “Keeping up with the Jones’s slow down – pray – go to THE SECRET PLACE. This is the REAL SECRET! The Secret to finding all that they look for and long for, it’s the place where there is freedom, the SECRET PLACE of abundance, overflow and rewards!

O LORD, that is the answer, that it THE SECRET! The Real Secret is no secret at all! Your Word is out there for everyone to know and read and come to know you. That’s it, so simple.

  • What DOORS have you been walking through lately?
  • What DOORS are you finished walking through?
  • What DOORS will you begin to walk through as of today?

Discover the REAL SECRET, the Universal Laws and Biblical Principals are there for you. God is The One who set them all in place…

mirrorI really love this quote from Socrates: “An unexamined life is a life not worth living.”

Each and every one of us has a blind spot (or 2 or 3 or…) some have more than others.  One of the things that cues me to begin some self examination is when I see something within me that continues to recur over and over that I either really do not like and want to understand how I can begin to make that negative “pattern” come to a stop, OR when there is something wonderful that has happened over and over again so that I can make sure that I continue to create that powerful and beautiful pattern over and over again.

Socrates believed that that our lives were for personal and spiritual growth.  I believe this too.  When we fail to grow to that effect then we really need to carve out the time to reflect and examine our lives.  This is a beautiful and sacred practice we should all begin to develop in order to become our greatest self.

askI think of the Scripture from Matthew 7:7 that tells us to Ask, Seek, Knock and THE DOOR WILL BE OPENED.  This is how GOD reveals, answers the deep questions that we have of ourselves, our lives, our purpose and how we can make transformations in our life that cause us to experience the sacred, the holy moments, the grace, the capacity to forgive, the desire for MORE of HIM, the need for GOD in your biz…   

What doors are you ready to open and examine the things behind them? Are they the doors to your heart? The doors to your biz, the direction you need to take with it?  Doors to personal relationships that need some sort of beautiful resurrection?  Maybe you need to knock on the secret doors to your creativity that you don’t even know about yet?  Do you have a longing to paint or make music or take inspirational photos, or create in general?  ASK for it in the knocking.

EXAMINE who you are now, and who you long to be.  What’s lacking? What is there too much of, to little of? WHAT? What needs to be different?

There is a method of self-examination that is called “Socratic dialogue” and helps you to determine what is unsettled, unfinished, something that seems missing from your life, things you can’t quite pinpoint on your own.

When we examine our actions, we can decide if they’re based on what ‘they’ think or directed by our intuition.  You can dialogue with a coach around this, or a spiritual adviser can help see those blind spots with you.  Self-awareness is not a selfish thing, it’s a beautiful and holy and sacred part of your journey.  Where do you feel empty or too stuffed with stuff that you need to let go of in order to fill the empty heart with passion and purpose and calling?

Allow yourself the self-examination time, enjoy who you are becoming, take part in your likebecoming.  Awaken your heart, soul and mind!

Do you like who you are becoming, or is it time to make a change?

Ask, seek and knock …


Find out how coaching can help you examine your life and how you can become your very own heart’s desire…

This is a GREAT LESSON for us!

A powerful lesson regarding the way in which we do life and how we choose to run our entrepreneurial biz! What are the wonderful insights you glean from these women just from watching this video?

It’s a reminder to me on so many levels to create my life and my biz with intention, fun, light heartedness and to always be ME!

I am actually finding myself in a place of transition and transformation – in which I am allowing myself to be much freer than I have ever been before.

Allowing myself to be the me that God created me to be, rather than being the person that someone else expects me to be. God knew what He was doing when He gave me and you our personalities, thoughts, reasoning abilities, creative desires, who we are attracted to, the tribes we circle in… and on and on it goes.

No more trying to beat out of rhythm for me! I am lining up with these fabulous women, not to be like them, but to be like me!

Ahhh… so freeing!

What about you?

What are your thoughts?

Rise Up in Your Spirit



Accept that you are unique & amazing & brilliant
& powerful & sacred & exhilarating!

Those of us on this crazy, hectic, tripped out Entrepreneurial Journey realize this is 2-25definitely a highway less traveled that makes perfect sense to us. BUT those in our family and many of our friends, to them it may make no sense at all.

Many of them may not want you to follow this path and because of their misunderstandings of it. They may even try to hold you back, or say this is too hard for you, and cause you to question this path yourself!

They may see you scaling upward and stepping outside your comfort zone and seeing you uncomfortable makes them uncomfortable so they try to “fix you” by trying to make you comfortable again!

Not everyone is keen on the idea of stepping outside their comfort zone and becoming uncomfortable. Some don’t like the idea of taking any kind of risks or facing fears.

3-25And when they see you doing this they can confront you and tell you to stop or that you are a bit crazy… this can wear one down. They may not like it because they themselves are not living into their own dreams and you could be a huge reminder to them of all that they themselves should be doing.

It’s hard with those that are really close to you don’t “get it” and it can even feel like they are putting you down, questioning you, judging you. They don’t know how to THINK BIG.

THEN they want the “old you” back, in your old familiar place of not taking leaps of faith, and not thinking big, to being comfy with them again.

This is exactly the reason that having a coach (like me :)) or a mentor, or an accountability partner to hold you in that sacred space of being brave, taking leaps across big skies and jumping over buildings! To help you reach your dreams, and conquer your big biz and be so supportive for you, especially those like me who’ve been there and can help you make those amazing spectacular GINORMOUS SHIFTS!

Prayer, Meditation & Journaling – Asking, Receiving & Hearing


There are similarities to Prayer and Meditation, as they both connect us deeply to God.
Yet there are marked differences which are very significant. I believe that we need to be doing both each and every day. There was a time when I simply prayed or simply meditated. I now have found that both are critical as sacred, powerful practices to connect deeply to the Divine, allowing for powerful connection to the Holy Spirit. I have also begun a third practice coupled with this and that is JOURNALING.

Prayers are our petitions unto God, asking of Him for specific needs in our lives and in the lives of those we Love. As we pray we share our deepest desires with God. We express our longings, Yearnings, Feelings and Innermost Thoughts with Him.
Meditation is the Sacred Breathing in of the Spirit, Exhaling & Releasing the negative thoughts that are not of God. The Soaking In The Spirit…
Journaling with God – allowing the Spirit to Speak, Listening to Him. This is where His Wisdom comes, where you Hear the Sacred Whispers of Our Lord! Capturing His wisdom on paper, journaling His Powerful Words to you. This is when you are able to Grasp All God has to share with you!! This is the Most Amazing time with The King!! Don’t miss out on it anymore.

Prayer is reaching out to the God of the Universe with Questions, as a plea for help, gratitude, and praise.

Meditation, on the other hand, has a Hushed Eminence that Respects the Art of Openness.

When we meditate, we Quite and Slowdown, allowing the commotions of our busy minds & worried hearts to relax and be relieved.

Within minutes we come to sacredness with our All Knowing, All Loving God, allowing Him to silence it all, ridding us of all the stress and noise that cause us to forget that we walk with him. And then something wonderful happens, we Remember that we Do Walk With Him! In this Sacred Remembrance, it becomes possible for us to actually Hear God as He Speaks to us in our Heads and our Hearts – to the deepest parts of our souls.

Then we begin the Journaling Process… Capturing His Brilliance, Radiance, Knowledge that He longs for us to hear, know & do.

Journaling out all the responses He has from your needs, worries, questions… It’s awesome! You don’t really want to miss out on this time with him do you?

So all of this these 3 things: Praying, Meditating & Journaling are your essential tools for steering your life’s course. Every bit of this guides you in your life, biz, and spirit.

Allow yourself to commit to this Sacred Way each and every day.

If we don’t do the 3 together, we will find ourselves out of alignment and will miss out on the beautiful benefits of this kind of communion with God. When we allow ourselves to practice all 3 of these things together we begin having the most amazing two way conversations with the God of The Universe! What do you think?

Awakening You Mind, Biz & Spirit,

9-9In times when you feel like there is chaos all around, or when you are in a place of struggle, fear, doubt, or confusion, take time to go within, to the Spirit living within.
Ask for the sacred guidance that is always available to you, ask to be guided.
Recognize that you have an internal knowing; you have the Holy Spirit living and dwelling within, Ready to guide and direct you. Ready to grant clarity, and wisdom.

The Holy Spirit is All Knowing, All Wisdom.  The Holy Spirit has been with God since Day One. Stand in awe with me at the Wisdom and Agelessness of the Spirit!

You have decisions to make, powerful choices at hand.  Realize that you can either tap into the life giving force and the power of the Spirit, or you can cut off the power of the Spirit at any given moment.

Say this with me, out loud; I have the power and freedom of choice… I can struggle with answering these questions myself. OR I can go within myself, turning to the Amazing, Sacred, All Knowing Ageless Spirit within me and allow for the Spirit to guide me. In this place of choice, I choose to take a moment, get into a sacred space, get quiet and begin a moment of prayer. I unchain my heart and open my mind to receive the blessed direction from the Spirit of Wisdom within.

Now, breathe in deeply… Breathing in the Power of The Spirit…

Exhaling all negative thoughts…
I breathe in the Sacred…
I breathe out all fear…
I breathe in sacred faith…
I exhale, releasing all chaos…
I relax… trust… listen…

I am open to The Voice of Knowledge…  I hear the plans from Divine Wisdom.
As I listen with an open heart and an open mind, I am guided to see the words You have for me.
I hear Your Words, I hear your Guidance…
I thank you for providing me with my perfect solution!
The powerful and loving Spirit leads me and makes my crooked path straight and I rejoice!
I discern what to do, and I carry on with God-confidence.

I will escort the blind down roads they do not know, guide them down paths they’ve never seen.  I will smooth their passage and light their way.  I will indeed do it—they are abandoned no more.” Isaiah 42:16 – The Voice

“If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.” Galatians 5:25

The Spirit of Joy is Within



If we are expecting another person, or something material, or for anything outside ourselves to cause us to be content or to make us happy; it is the perfect time to look deep within.   Take this moment to look within your innermost being.

We may be dissatisfied with what is going on or what is not going on that you had hoped for in your life… —but recognizing that your life’s conditions do not determine your joy, peace, pleasure…

We have been given the freedom of choice. Praise God! We can renew our minds; see things with new eyes, with spiritual eyes, with new perspectives.  We can choose to embark on an inner personal voyage to joy no matter the outward circumstances.

Joy is always within – if we have (which we do) the Spirit living and dwelling within, we have Joy here, available.

Allow for your joy to burst forth… be joy, see joy, share joy!

Grant yourself entry into joy.  The joy of Spirit is within, part of your heart and soul.

Experience and know the Spirit of God is always within you, omnipresent, and you take this with you every single second of every single day.

You need not wait for something or someone to grant you joy… Your joy is here, now, already complete in Spirit.

Meditate on this Scripture, let it sink within you, sing it out with joy, proclaim it! Journal this out…

“I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.” John 15:11

Spirit Walking – Guidance


Breathe in The Spirit Summer Waves

In times of chaos, struggles, fears, doubts, hurts and pains, I ask myself, ‘What am I going to do?’ Or ‘How did I get myself into this situation?’

I realize that I am in a place of decision – I have powerful choices.

I can either cut off the power of the Spirit, or I can tap into the Power of The Spirit in these moments.

I can allow myself to struggle with answering these questions myself, OR I can go within myself, turning to the amazing and sacred, all knowing and ageless Spirit within me and allow for the Spirit to guide me.

In this place of choice, I chose to take a moment, get into a sacred space, get quiet and begin a moment of prayer.

I unlock my heart and open my mind to receive the blessed direction from the Spirit of Wisdom within.

I breathe in deeply…

Exhaling all negative thoughts…

I breathe in the Sacred…

I breathe out all fear…

I breathe in sacred faith…

I exhale, releasing all chaos…

I relax… trust… listen…

I am open to The Voice of Knowledge…  I hear the plans from Divine Wisdom.

As I listen with an open heart and an open mind, I am guided to see the words You have for me.

I hear the simple verse of the perfectly planned song you have for me to hear in that very moment providing me with my perfect solution!

The powerful and loving Spirit leads me and makes my crooked path straight and I rejoice!

I discern what to do, and I carry on with God-confidence.

“If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.” Galatians 5:25
