Listening to Love

I have made it a priority to listen more deeply to those who are in my life. Whether it is my children, clients, friends, strangers, or acquaintances, I know everyone has something to offer. We can deepen our relationship with others if we are willing to listen on a soul level. Some people are natural listeners, other people struggle with being a good listener. I believe that if you don’t have a natural gift to listen it is something that can be learned with practice.
Here are some lessons I have learned to become a better listener.
1. Listen to our Soul: When we tune into listening to our soul and the voice of our creator, we can learn to listen to others more deeply.Conflict can be caused by judgment of another’s behavior, not being heard or valued,and not feeling free to speak their true feelings.When someones is critical of themselves they are usually critical of others. When we learn to listen and understand ourselves we can create the safe space to listen to others.Finding value in who you are opens the opportunity to find value in what other’s have to share.
2.Look beyond Behavior: Understanding that human beings behave both consciously and unconsciously. Their behavior has nothing to do with us. They are acting out of their own free agency, whether it be positive or negative you can choose not to let it affect you.As a parent I have learned to look beyond my child’s behavior to fully understand their feelings.When I create a space for feelings to be shared freely the behavior changes in a positive way.The importance of being HEARD is transforming for the individual being heard and for the one listening. Becoming a good listener invites you to become a more loving compassionate human being.
3.Everyone has a Message: When you listen on a soul level with another human being to can learn truth from their experiences. Every soul has gained wisdom through their life experience. When we share that truth the listener and the one sharing can expand in wisdom. Truth expands when shared and received.
4. Be Present:Giving our undivided attention invites others to feel of our spirit and for us to feel theirs.This level of listening goes beyond words.

A personal experience I had last week reminded me how important it is to stop and listen to our loved ones.This experience is what inspired me to write to you today. I was sitting on my couch reading while my daughter Taylor and son Tristan were doing their homework. I had already planned the next day with projects I needed to get done for my coaching program, website, and networking. I was having problems with my website and needed to work on it to get it resolved so I could complete my other projects. I was looking forward to having time to work on it the next day.As I was sitting there my son said “Mom can you come get me for lunch tomorrow?” In that moment everything stopped for me. Tristan had never asked me this before. There was something in his voice that was longing. I felt something inside of me. I felt more than just words, instead I felt his spirit. I told him I would do what I can and mentioned what I needed to get done tomorrow. I am a person who enjoys giving someone I love surprises.  I began figuring out how I could get what I needed done to fix my website. I found a company that could take care of everything I needed and they did it quicker than I would of. I decided to surprise Tristan at school the next day. I will never forget the smile on my son’s face when he came around the corner and I was standing in the hallway of his school.  The joy of that moment is forever with me. We had a lunch at his favorite place and I quickly got him back to school as soon as I could. We didn’t say much during that quick lunch but MY PRESENCE said everything. My son thanked me four times that day and continued to come up and give me hugs throughout the evening. It was a heart warming experience that I wanted to share with you. My hope is that you will create heart warming memories in your life through listening to those you love.

Love and light,

Gifts of Overcoming Adversity

It has been fourteen years since I filed for divorce. Anyone who has been through divorce knows how ugly and devastating it can be. Back then I felt my whole world fall apart. I was emotionally spent and spiritually exhausted from giving all that I possibly could to have a family forever. I didn’t know back then that my divorce was a catalyst for my healing and spiritual awakening. Today I am grateful for the courage I had to heal and become whole after a devastating experience.

You don’t have to go through a divorce to heal and awaken to your true self. That is just how it happened for me. We all have experiences that will open up the opportunity for us to heal and discover our divine nature. Sometimes it can be traumatic and painful however, other times it can be through joy and love. I have learned that I have a choice! I can choose to learn my life’s lessons through joy and love. If I have a challenging experience that brings pain, I move through it extremely quickly by acknowledging my feelings, surrendering my will to God’s will,and not resisting it.

This month I celebrate who I am and the gift of overcoming my adversity. I am giving a free gift to the world! My book Celestial Marriage Reflections on Love and Faith is available on Kindle for FREE for the next 48 hours. This book is my pearl from the adversity I experienced through my divorce. I made the decision to become a more loving, compassionate, and forgiving person. Instead of being angry,depressed, and hurt from my past experience. My divorce was the catalyst for me seeking God for answers regarding the relationship between a man and a woman. I wanted to know what would work, because I felt like I tried everything. My book is the inspiration I received from God and my spiritual experiences. I sought answers from God and I received them through listening to my soul. I know all of us have the answers within us.Truth is eternal. Truth is consistent. I share my truth in my book to invite others to ponder and receive their own personal revelation from God on how to make a marriage relationship work.

The original copy of my book that I wrote over ten years ago had 300 pages. I decided to only publish 100 pages and add photos to make it a beautiful work of art. Just how life doesn’t always go as we planned my book unfolded into how it was supposed to be. In my original copy I wanted to tell people HOW to create a Celestial Marriage. My published copy shared what I discovered to be true, seeking inspiration from God, and inviting others to do the same. I surrendered to the creative experience of publishing my first book and loved who I became in the process. I have several more books to publish and share with the world. What about you? Is there something inside of you that you can share with others to bless their life. You have gained knowledge through your life experiences. That is POWER! You can make a difference in someone’s life when you are willing to share your experience, hope, and faith. May you take some time to ponder your own life experience to discover the gifts you received from adversity. You will find them if you will take the time to look.

I am grateful for the opportunity I have to share with you each month. I am grateful for the opportunity to share this ebook with all those that will open their heart to it.

You can get your FREE copy from kindleunlimited at amazon.com. Please feel free to share it with your family and friends.Here is the link to get the FREE OFFER:

From my heart to yours….

Love and light,

Dreams Come True

I have wanted to go to the Redwoods for several years. Well, an unexpected trip to California landed me right in the middle of a dream come true.Do you find yourself wondering if some of the things you want will ever happen? To be honest I ponder that question often. I wonder why somethings manifest so easily and effortlessly and why somethings take time or never manifest. What is the  secret to manifesting what you want?  I don’t have all the answers. I find that manifesting my dreams is a constant learning process with God guiding me along the way. I always leave room for his dream for me to manifest and do my best to stay out of the way. I realize I am limited in what I can see to bless my life.That is when I align myself with God’s will and surrender. There are also times when my Heavenly Father reminds me that it is essential to my spiritual progression to learn to be a creator and to manifest what I want. Balancing these two important lessons keeps my faith strong and allows me the freedom to grow as a woman of God.

Here are some of the tools I use to manifest my dreams:

1.Journal Writing- The first step in manifesting is listening to the personal revelation you receive for your life. I will begin to write out my feelings and what I am going through. Then I take time to listen to what experiences Heavenly Father would like to bring into my life and write it down in my journal. Writing is taking the spiritual(inspiration) world and bringing it into the physical(journal) world. God created everything spiritually before he created it physically.
2.Vision Board- I use a nine square vision board to list the things I want to manifest. I hand write some of the items and use photos. I put three easy items, three difficult items, and three outrageous items that seem impossible. Your vision board should have different levels so you can reach beyond your limitations and create what you think is impossible,possible. I teach this method in my coaching programs. There is scientific evidence on why this method works. I won’t go into the details with you now, however you can contact me if you would be interested in learning more about it.
3.Visualization- Guided visualization is another tool to help us manifest what we want. Our mind doesn’t know the difference between a visualization and the actual experience. It accepts both as reality. When we visualize what we want our mind, body, and spirit has that experience in that moment. It is taking that spiritual inspiration and bringing it into the physical body. We have to believe it is possible before it can happen.
4.Trust- This requires us to completely trust in ourselves, our Creator, and the angels to assist us. We have to let go and trust that it will manifest. You need to realize somethings will manifest instantly and some things take time. I have also discovered that what I want to manifest changes and I have had to learn how to be flexible. Sometimes I take things off my vision board and change it. I know God is in charge and he doesn’t want to limit me in any way. I am the one that needs to stay out of my own way and not limit myself.
5.Meditation- Learning to become still and listen to your soul through meditation helps us to find the creator within us. There is a power within us that is capable of creating worlds without end. We are children of God. We have the same power he does. There is a deep humility that arises within us when we find this part of ourselves. It is beautiful awakening of our truth.
6.Expect the Unexpected- My dreams always come when I don’t expect it. This is what  makes the journey of creating so exciting and fun! I love it!
7.Accept the Gift with Gratitude- Everything is a gift from God. You created and manifested your goal or dream through the power of God. The power of God that is in you and the power of God Heavenly Father shared with you to create and manifest your dreams. Each time I receive the gift of a dream coming true, my heart opens wider to receive God’s love for me. From the simplest desire to the biggest desire I praise God for his hand in my life.

Walking in the Redwoods with my granddaughter is a dream come true I will cherish forever. I didn’t know I was going to California until I few days before the trip. My life was extremely busy and I had worked 72 hours a week reaching a goal for a career change I decided to make. My anxiety was high, I was exhausted, and my life was in transition.  I got a call from a family member who was taking a trip to California  to see some ill family members.They wanted to stop in Idaho to see me along the way. Their car wasn’t in the best condition to take a long trip.The next thing I knew I offered them use of my car to finish the trip and I was on a road trip with them to the California Redwoods. This was actually NOT the best time to take a road trip, however when what you want shows up, you take it!! Things don’t always show up exactly how you imagine, but they do show up in mysterious ways.It was a great bonding time for me and my granddaughter. The healing that occurred after one day on the beach and in the Redwoods did more for me than anything else I did all year. Even though it was a short trip the experience is something I will hold onto forever. It wasn’t just another item off my vision board. It was a dream come true!

Love and light,

Secrets to Manifesting

 

One afternoon I was sitting quietly for a moment listening carefully for inspiration for my life. I wanted to hear something that would guide me to the next step for my life. I have desires I want to manifest that I know would be essential for my spiritual growth. I asked God to reveal ways I may be blocking myself to receive blessings from him. Limiting beliefs came into my awareness and I released all negative thoughts. I heard God’s voice clearly. His words of love, comfort, and truth opened the door to receive blessings I desired. I then felt something so powerful come over me that my heart swelled with humility and gratitude. I have discovered truths that have helped me manifest the desires in my soul. I desire to share them with you.

  1. Knowledge of Who You Are. You have to know you are a powerful creator. Through this knowledge, you will be able to manifest what you desire. Manifesting your desires helps you to embrace your God Characteristics. Being a creator requires you to give up being a victim of circumstance and blaming others for why you don’t have what you want. When we align ourselves with God’s will, we draw upon his power, the power of angels, and divine love to create from our free will. Desires from our soul are selfless, pure, joyful, peaceful, loving, expressions of our spirit. When that expression of spirit is manifest, we are manifesting the glory of God within us.
  2. Detach From the Outcome. Set the intention with faith, have no doubt, and let it go. Believe with your whole body. Begin with your thoughts, allow yourself to feel it in your heart, and embrace it completely in your body as though it has already happened. When we detach from the outcome, we don’t have to figure out how, why, or when it will manifest. It is a state of knowing it will happen in the perfect time for the highest spiritual growth of everyone involved. Let go of how you think it is going to look and you will open the door to receive it. When you FEEL something is possible and you allow the energy to be FREE of the outcome, it manifests quickly.
  3. Let Go of Limiting Beliefs. Get out of your own way. Become aware of your self-talk and release negative thoughts that limit you. The universe is always working to support you to become all that you can become. When you do not resist this process, you open the windows of heaven to enlighten your mind and support your soul’s desires.
  4. Ask a Question. Begin your day with questions and allow the universe to unfold the answers. Here are some examples: How can I help someone in need today? What can I do to make someone feel loved and supported? How can I be open to the miracles of today? How can I show my love to others? Asking the questions allows you to give up HOW the desire is going to happen. It also allows an opportunity to trust God and the universe. We become open vessels for God to manifest through us.
  5. Rejoice in The Blessings of Others. Feeling joy when others receive what they desire creates a ripple effect in our own life. We receive the same joy they have, if we open our heart to it. Celebrating other’s success dissolves feelings of envy or jealousy. There is enough for everyone. There are blessings JUST for you. It is God’s way of saying I am here, I hear you, and this is a blessing just for you, from me.
  6. Make Someone’s Dream Come True. When we can become answers to another’s prayer or support their dreams to come true we will receive gifts from God in miraculous ways. Sometimes we receive our desires when we support others in receiving theirs. The true gift of manifesting is giving and receiving through divine love.
  7. Gratitude.Lifting our heart in gratitude to our creator is the greatest power we have in manifesting our desires. We are in the glory of God when we express gratitude in all things. The light and glory of our spirit shines bright and lights the path to receive more.

Embracing our God-like qualities to become a creator of our life is our divine purpose. We take steps in this process by letting go of our negative beliefs, embracing our power to create, and supporting others and ourselves with love. It takes practice so be patient with yourself and enjoy the journey.

Love and light,

It is ALL Good

Yesterday my daughter and I went for a two hour walk. During that time I was sharing that everything has a positive outcome. Even if you make a mistake somehow the universe will turn it into a positive experience for your soul’s growth.   I have realized over the years that it is impossible for good not to come! It always does! There are always blessings that come from every experience.  I have no more judgments of bad or good experiences because what seemed to be bad always turned out good. There is the constant force of light moving us forward to grow spiritually to evolve and embrace our divine nature. I have experienced a powerful loving energy that supports me to expand into Christ consciousness when I live in gratitude for every experience. When you make a conscious choice to see the positive in every situation, there is a miracle that awaits you, if you will listen to spirit and be aware.

When you change your focus to the positive in your life,  inspiration, solutions, truth, and understanding comes. There is good in all things.  Doors of opportunity are open even when you can’t see them. Love, abundance, peace, and joy is available the moment you are willing to stop resisting and accept it.

There is immeasurable value for you and your experiences. It is for your growth and the growth of everyone around you. BE THE ONE who will choose to see the good in everyone and everything. We are all connected and we touch each other’s lives whether we are aware or not. When we support ourselves and each other with positive thoughts and words, our souls are nurtured.

The universe is always, always, always, moving us, guiding us, and supporting us to see the Divine in all things.  It is all around us. It is in us! It is our soul’s purpose to receive good, to learn from good, to remember we are good. All is good. All is God. Opposition is the big illusion! When you face the opposition and focus on the good, the opposition loses power.  The miracle of peace comes and spirit can move freely to guide you in the direction of your highest good. Surrendering to the spirit of God without resisting or attempting to control, opens the door to the peace within. It’s your choice to get discouraged or pulled down from opposition or rise up and rejoice in your blessings. What will you choose today?

Love and light,

Questions that Open the Possibilities for Change

I begin my day walking in nature, pondering life, and asking God questions. One of the first questions I ask is, “How can I make a difference in the world?” This is a great way to be open to align myself with my purpose and God’s will. Some of the things we do may be grand and others things may be small. All are essential to benefit humanity. Through small and great things, we can make a positive change that will have a ripple effect on others, including ourselves.

These 10 questions can open up positive loving energy in your life and have a positive effect on those around you. Remember not to let your mind try to figure out the “How?” Let the universe figure out the how. Just open the door to the possibilities of the question you ask.

There are unlimited possibilities of how your day can unfold. Asking questions opens the doors to possibilities. These are just a few examples.  I suggest thinking of some of your own. It is important that you make it personal between you and God. If you will practice asking questions in the morning it will open your heart to the goodness within you, and the goodness in the world.

I suggest asking with real intent, humility, and a desire to serve others.   The best time to ask is first thing in the morning. Then go about your day and allow the opportunity to present itself. Then watch the miracle happen…………

 

1)      “How can I make a difference in the world?”

2)      “How can I show someone I love them today?”

3)      What emotions can I let go of today?

4)      How do I turn my weaknesses into strengths?

5)      Who do I need to forgive?

6)      What am I holding onto that no longer serves me?

7)      How can I enjoy more beauty in my life?

8)      Who can I kiss, hug, and tell I love you today?

9)      How can I share my spiritual gifts today?

10)   How much love can I accept from God today?

 

There is something more that happens than just receiving the answer to these questions. If you allow yourself to be guided you will witness the beauty of spirit unfolding before your eyes. It is a great tool to free your mind and open your heart to what is available to experience through divine power.

It is worth the experience. Give it a try!

Love and light,

Johnna Andrea Tuttle
