Surrender

“Spiritual work is a continuous willingness to let things go as they arise.”~ David R. Hawkins

What is possible when one continually surrenders? We find happiness within us when we make letting go a part of our life process. It is part of our divine nature to be happy. It is a choice I make everyday. You can choose to embrace your divine nature to be the joy you are, in-spite of life’s challenges.

The past several months have been a journey of surrendering at a whole new level for me. I let go of a relationship I had held onto for years. I let go of a business that I had spent seven years building. I let go of my perception of what thought I wanted to create. I let go of writing my book, blogging, and being on the radio. Most of all, I let go of “trying to make things happen.” I am a mover and a shaker. It is in my nature to get things done, shake things up, and make it happen. I know when to push and  I know when to let go and trust. Well I experienced a whole new level of surrendering that has brought about an unshakable peace within me. Just when you think you are doing great, God says, “wait there is more! I can give you so much more! If you are willing to receive.”  I completely surrendered myself to God and allowed myself to completely trust my higher self to flow with spirit. I connected to a deep sense of peace and love for myself. I gained a greater appreciation for my life and those that have been apart of my life experience so far. I learned to love the unknown instead of feeling uncomfortable with it. There is so much knowledge gained through surrendering control.

My message to you this month is to practice surrendering more than you have in the past. Here are some steps you can take to learn how to let go and surrender.

1.Make a conscious effort to feel your feelings as they come up, acknowledge them, and surrender them to God. As you go about your day recognize how you deal with your feelings. Do you acknowledge them? Do you do something to distract yourself so you don’t have to feel?
2. Write in a journal. Writing brings awareness of our true feelings and opens the door to inspiration.Keeping a notepad by your bed is a great way to start writing. Technology is used so much on a daily basis. Writing is great way to detach from technology and connect to your true self.
3. Write your negative emotions on a piece of paper and burn it. This tool allows the energy to be transformed into something else.
4.Do visualizations. You can visualize yourself in nature communicating with God. Feeling that connection through visualization can help you to feel safe to let go and surrender your worries, emotions, and thoughts over to God.
5.Write affirmations down and hang them around the house. One of the affirmations I have posted on my bathroom wall says,” I take the path of least resistance.” It is so exciting when you live the affirmations you have been saying for a while!!!

Surrendering allows you to flow with your life experiences.You will find happiness in your daily life as you practice surrendering. This is the path that allows you to flow with life instead of fighting it. Some experiences we have no control over and some we can create. We can have peace and happiness in both. We can gain knowledge and understanding of the mysteries of God through the art of surrendering.

Surrendering sometimes means we need to ask for assistance. After we have done all we can, we let go, and trust the angels will come to assist us. One of my angels is my friend Dr. Eve Agee. Eve is a life coach and the director of her coaching academy. You can learn more about Eve at www.eveagee.com. I had worked  hard for many years trying to overcome my financial struggles with raising four children on my own. I found myself exhausted from the journey and didn’t realize how hard I had pushed myself to succeed. So I reached out for help. After the first session with Eve my life started to shift. The things I had been working on to create in my life showed up faster! My income doubled and I received inspiration on what to do with my business. I also began listening to my affirmation CD everyday from my phone. I am now living those affirmations I created on the CD. WOW! Powerful changes occurred when I surrendered and was open to receiving assistance. This was a very humbling experience for me. I am usually the one who is supporting everyone else. Surrendering and opening up to someone allowed me to receive more in my life. I received more money,love,happiness,inspiration,and trust in God. I discovered giving and receiving are the same. It feels free to give and to receive.

Another gift that I received through surrendering was becoming  better at co-creating with God. Learning to be a creator is part of our divine destiny. Many people practice the law of attraction. The law of attraction is a great truth, however, there are higher truths available for us to receive but only if we seek them. If I want to know how to create I ask God directly, then I listen for the answer, or message he sends me from others. When we are in alignment with God, surrender control, remain detached from the outcome, everything we create comes to us effortlessly.


Love and light,

Your Body Speaks

If you are willing to be still and listen,you can hear and understand what your body is saying to you. I want to share an experience with you. Last week I had oral surgery. I had a tooth that fractured and needed to be extracted. I was sad at first, however, I knew I had done everything I could to save the tooth.My journey of an extracted tooth began 15 years ago when I had a root canal.Ten years later the dentist added a crown to the same tooth. Five years after the crown the tooth fractured and needed to be extracted. It has been quite the process to save my tooth. I never thought this would be something I would have to go through. I thought that I had always taken good care of my teeth. I reflected on the choices I made prior to the root canal. I was addicted to sugar and didn’t pay much attention to nutrition and oral health. The consequences were cavities and a root canal. If there are any changes you need to make in your oral health make them now. Don’t wait until it is too late.

When I became pregnant with my son, I decided to eliminate sugar from my diet. I also learned about massage therapy, juicing, and meditation. A whole new level of health and healing had opened up to me and I started to be more conscious of what I ate and what choices I made to elevate stress. I began to educate myself about toxins and how to remove them from my body. The more I started to love and accept my body, the more aware I became of what to products to use on my body and what foods to eat. I learned about the harmful effects of fluoride and started using natural toothpaste. Eliminating sugar, eating a plant based diet, and using natural toothpaste without fluoride changed my oral health. I have had no cavities since the root canal 15 years ago. I also enjoy emotional balance from the elimination of sugar from my diet.

Why am I sharing this with you??? I care about your health!!!!!! No one taught me how to eat properly and how to listen to my body. I had to learn  the importance of self-love, and self-care through a lot of pain and suffering. You can choose pain or self love as a motivator for change. Pain is a way for your body to get your attention!!!! Your body is speaking to you letting you know you are out of balance. It could be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.It is our responsibility to STOP and listen to our body.

The body can heal itself. Letting go of the judgment of whether it is bad or good frees your body to just go through the healing process. It is just an experience! Let it be what it is and become the observer of your pain. Allow your spirit to share insights of what your experience is about. Allow whatever emotions you feel  inside of you to release. Forget what your mind is telling you about the experience and allow the miracle of your body to speak eternal truths. Our bodies hold the wisdom of ages through the voice of our soul. If you ignore your pain, numb your pain with toxic chemical substances, or avoid your pain through addictive behaviors, you cover up the miracle of who you are and the power you have within you to heal.

The greatest gift I have given to myself is making choices out of self love instead of pain and suffering. I no longer need to wait until the pain too great to make a change. Choosing to love myself and make choices to keep my body in balance allows me to go through experiences with grace and ease. Resisting pain or challenges only intensifies it. As I am open and learn to grow and flow with the pains in life, I allow my body to experience life with sacredness and honor of the miracle I am.

You are a miracle! Your body is a sacred and holy temple for your spirit. Listen to your feelings, express them, and allow the energy of your feelings to be released without judgment. Our feelings are our truth in the moment.Making it a practice to speak your truth will set you free. Freedom is yours when you are willing to be still and listen to your body speak.

Here are some of the things I enjoy doing to bring my body into balance:
1. Meditate- Meditation allows our mind to become quiet so our spirit can observe the energy of what is going on in our body. It opens our connection to our Creator so we can allow healing love and light to nourish our body and spirit.It also allows us to expand our awareness of our self  and receive inspiration for our life.

2.Yoga-Yoga helps us learn to breathe into the areas of tension when we hold a pose. Increasing our flexibility helps us to be more flexible with life. It also allows us to connect to our body, mind, and spirit with power and intention.

3.Juicing-Juicing cleanses our body of toxins and brings vitality to our cells. It increases our energy and heals the body. I juiced ginger,cucumber,and carrots to ease pain after my oral surgery instead of using prescriptions or Tylenol. It worked great!!

4.Sound Healing-Playing beautiful music can sooth the soul,calm the mind, and bring our body into balance. I also use crystal bowl sound healing to bring my chakras into balance.

5.Gemstones-Gemstones promote healing and awakening on every level- body,mind,emotions,and spirit. You can wear gemstone necklaces or do self therapy treatments to help bring your body into balance. You can find our more about healing with gemstones by sending me an email at andreaswellnesscenter@gmail.com.

6.Nutrition- When we eat  balanced meals of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains our bodies are balanced. We can focus more effectively, and our energy increases. There are foods that increase our energy and foods that decrease our energy. Making the best personal choices for our body comes through awareness of what we eat and how we feel after we eat it. If the food you eat doesn’t increase your energy after eating it, then it is time to reconsider your food choices.

7. Writing in a Journal- Writing helps us process our feelings in a healthy way. I also encourage my clients to keep two journals. The first one is to use to write down all feelings. I also suggest burning the pages when they are ready. Burning the pages is a physical action to transform the energy into something else. This is a great healing tool for people needing to release anger, fear,hurt, grief, and shame. The other journal is used as a creation journal. This is where I invite my clients to write down positive affirmations, goals, and dreams. There is great power in writing our goals down. I have manifested 21 desires this past year. A creation journal was one of the tools I used to manifest what I want.

8.Nature- Nature is one of the most powerful healing gifts for our bodies. The life force that comes from the earth balances our chakras, clears our mind, and awakens our soul. Spending time in nature is essential for our well being. If you don’t have time, make time! Even if you just spend a few minutes in the sun or lay on the grass it will make a huge difference in your life.

9.Detox Bath- An Epsom salt bath is great for relaxation and detoxification. I use 1-2 cups of epsom salt, lavender essential oil, and Master’s Miracle Soap for a great energy clearing,relaxing, and detoxing bath.I also like to add some beautiful music and candles for ambiance.

10.Self Love- It takes self-love to make the choices we need to keep our body healthy and balanced. Our thoughts about our-self is a reflection of how we treat our self and others. Having positive self talk is essential to our health. Transformation begins with a thought to believe the truth. Which is that you are loved! You are lovable! You are perfect as you are in this moment! You are growing and learning on your spiritual journey. Enjoy your life without judgment of yourself and others. Life is blissful when you do!

Love and light,

Gratitude

November is the month we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.It is a reminder to be grateful for all the blessings in our life.I have taught in my workshops that being grateful is a way of life and a state of mind rather than something we do once in a while or for the holiday season. Human beings have a tendency to be pulled down by negativity too easily. It takes spiritual strength to find the positive and good in the daily challenges of life.

Living in gratitude is more than just being thankful for what we have or thinking positively. It is feeling compassion, appreciation, and connection to others and our Creator. Let me share an example from my book Celestial Living Reflections on Love and Faith.

One evening I came home from work and was very tired. I had been working as a massage therapist 40 hours a week, which required a lot of strength and energy from me emotionally and physically. I reached for a package of salad mix that had been washed, cut, and ready to use. As I was sitting at the table I began to think of all the people that it took to grow the vegetables, harvest the vegetables,transport the vegetables to the store, and those that worked at the store to sell me the food. Something powerful awakened in me that opened a deeper level of gratitude and connection to everything and everyone on the planet. I was receiving A GIFT from many people! I felt honored through the service of so many to bring me this food that was so convenient for me to eat at this particular time. I felt like a queen eating this $3.00 package of pre-mixed salad.An enormous amount of love expanded within me and out towards all people on the earth. This spiritual experience changed how I view everything and everyone in my life.

Living in gratitude opens our eyes and our heart to love more deeply. Gratitude allows us to experience more compassion, to increases our appreciation for life, and feel our connection to humanity.

I have felt deeply loved by God through the goodness of others. Whether I have known them or not I feel the connection we have with each other and my life is blessed.

May you take some time to ponder how others may bless your life today and always.

Love and light,

Johnna Andrea Tuttle

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,

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,

Welcome to My Blog

Welcome to my Blog! My blog is about the essence of the soul.  I know you are your own spiritual Guru! I believe the answers are within you.  You already know the steps to take. You just needed someone to remind you to  listen. I write some of my spiritual experiences on my blog because it gives me joy to share what is in my soul with you. What helped me discover the truth in my soul was someone who was willing to share what was in their soul. So many human beings relate to each other through the human ego. I used to communicate that way and nothing worked very well in my relationships. When I started listening to my own soul, my whole world changed. My relationships are now centered in joy,love, passion, connection, and purpose. May you discover the truth within you, as I share the truth within me.

Love and light,

Johnna Andrea Tuttle
