“Coping with so-called ups and downs … and our rollercoaster lives”- AFY.

      Welcome to you all. 

Today’s subject matter came to me after quite a stressful week, and negativity and anxiety seemed to constantly rear their ugly heads in many shapes and forms. Well, I’m sure many of you have had first hand experience of this, whereby you seem to be in the firing line no matter what you do or say. And while it’s true that angst and fear and trepidation often occur during our ‘work’,  many of us also experience these things within the home, or even with our family and friends … after all, we are ‘ONE’, and connected!

Therefore, I wonder how you cope with testing times, like accidents, unexpected financial burdens, or health concerns to name a few? Do you count to ten, take deep breaths, and hope they’ll go away? We all know money CANNOT solve everything, especially where matters of the heart are concerned, so today’s excerpt wants to help us begin to cope … with so-called ups and downs.

Have a good week ahead, and remember to stay positive!!    


“Do you see your glass half full or half empty? This analogy in its simplest form indicates one’s thoughts have a major impact on daily life. As this is so, learning to train any wayward or ‘monkey’ mind is crucial. When a negative thought enters your consciousness, try to override it as soon as possible. Counteract it with positive feelings, and picture an outcome of joy, love, and hope … away from fear, hate, and helplessness.

One must realize, negativity can be deep rooted, and in turn, take a great effort to erase. Please try, otherwise such thoughts can spread, touching and taking over others, because your concerns and worries are naturally ‘shared’ with your family or friends.

Like a common cold, the germination of a virus is quick, does not discriminate over young or old, color or creed; it only wants to multiply and extend itself. The difference now though, is you know you have the choice, a real weapon in your armory of defense. Let this knowledge be your shield, protecting you, bringing strength and fortitude over many minor irritations, but even more so, if the roller-coaster of life hits a new low.I know this can be difficult at times, and you may think it’s not much fun or even fair, especially when things occur upon the Earth-plane which cause your tears to fall.

However, without any doubt, you can ride out the troughs of frustration and confusion, and elevate to new heights of experience and happiness. When all is said and done, try to live your life in joy. Remember, the inner connection to each other is eternal, and the garland of my grace you wear will keep you away from all despair, if you let it! Though I placed this around your neck, it actually rests over your heart, so reach for it, symbolically, with both hands, which will enable your mind, body and Soul to ride those ups and downs with ease. Please enjoy this experience of so-called ‘life’, as it is freely given to you, to succeed through love, forever …  Amen”.

PS. God knows what you need and when. Forget how or why things take place, and trust in ‘him’.
