Manifesting Our Inner Potential ...Life Purpose Defined"

--by Robert Elias Najemy


“…The lion then woke up from its ignorance and discovered its previously ignored 
inner courage, strength and majesty.”


Self Limiting Elephants--
Elephants born in captivity are restrained by a chain that attaches one leg to a metal spike driven into the ground. This prevents them from roaming. They become accustomed to the fact that, as long as the chain and spike are next to them, they are unable to move.

As they grow older, their minds become programmed. When they see the spike and chain, they “believe” and accept that they will not be able to move. They become so conditioned that when their owners place a small rope and wooden peg next to them, they make no effort to step away from it, because they “believe” they are unable to.

In truth, their actual power as adults is so great that they could easily pull up a chain and spike of any size. Their programming or “belief,” however, allows this tiny rope and wooden peg to limit their movement.

We are all very much like these elephants. We allow the weaknesses, fears and rejection we experienced as children to program us into a life in which we lack power, peace, love and happiness. We become controlled by false childhood assumptions we have made about our ability, strength and self worth.

We can move away from these “pegs” of self-limitation, but we must chose to do so. ~

The Lion Cub—
The story about the lion cub more graphically describes this process.

Once there was a great lioness that went hunting with her newborn cub. While chasing and attacking a flock of sheep, the she-lion made a wrong move, fell off a cliff and died.

The cub was left without a mother and grew up in the midst of the sheep. As the years passed, the cub became a full-grown lion, but it was instinctually conditioned to behave as a sheep. It ate grass, made a bleating sound, and just like the sheep, developed a fear of all other animals.

One day, another lion attacked the flock, and in the chase, was shocked to see the ridiculous sight of a full grown lion running away with the sheep bleating “bah bah” in fear.  He caught up to the sheepish lion, and asked, “What are you doing? Why are you acting in this ridiculous way? You a great, powerful lion acting like a lowly powerless sheep? What has come over you? You should be ashamed of yourself.”  The sheepish lion explained that he was a sheep, and that the flock had taught him to fear and bleat and run in horror from the powerful lions.

The adult lion took the sheepish lion down to the river and asked him to look at the reflection of his own face. He saw that he was like the lion and not like the sheep. The lion then woke up from its ignorance and discovered its previously ignored inner courage, strength and majesty.

We are like the sheepish lion. The sheep represent our human nature, our personality, which moans, fears, complains and worries. The Lion is the spiritual aspect of our being, which is a source of great power, wisdom, creativity, goodness and love.  Great spiritual teachers have appeared throughout history with the same message of our “LION NATURE”, the untapped spiritual power and greatness that dwells within us.~

Our Life Purpose--
Our life purpose is to manifest our unlimited inner power, beauty, creativity and love. We will never feel totally satisfied until we fulfill this inner need to become who we really are. Just as every flower feels a basic need to bring forth its flowers and fruits, we too have an abundance of gifts to bring forth to the world around us. We can do this in many ways.

What are your challenges, which you would like to meet today with greater confidence in your inner power and ability to cope?

1. Dealing more positively with a relationship problem?
2. Healing yourself from an illness or weakness in the body?
3. Dealing with the loss of or separation from a loved one?
4. Solving an economic problem?
5. Bringing up children with love and wisdom?
6. Manifesting social changes?
7. Facing death with inner peace when the time comes?
8. Forgiving someone?
9. Confronting fears?
10. Transforming our belief system.
11. Coping with a law case or some injustice?
12. Creating something that requires all your inner resources?
13. Finishing school?
14. Making a new step in life?
15. Making an important decision?

Whatever our present challenges might be, we need to move forward and meet them on all levels with self-confidence, self-esteem, humility, love and clarity. In addition, we need to be detached from the final outcome.


It is the motive and effort which count and not the result.

We will also need to develop patience and perseverance.  We must persevere while also being patient for the results. ///end

Forgiveness 21 Days to Forgive Everyone for Everything | Iyanla Vanzant


~Hay House, Inc. presents Iyanla Vanzant's  FORGIVENESS (eBook)

"Only forgiveness can liberate minds and hearts once held captive by anger, bitterness, resentment, and fear. Forgiveness is a true path to freedom that can renew faith, build trust, and nourish the soul."

Too many of us feel trapped in stagnant romantic, family, or workplace relationships. Weighed down by toxic thoughts and emotions, we might be quick to judge and slow to pardon, and self-righteous about our feelings as we dwell on memories of what we or others did (or failed to do).
In this new book and CD, Iyanla Vanzant challenges us to liberate ourselves from the wounds of the past and to embrace the new power of forgiveness. [SEE MORE HERE] 

With Iyanla's 21-Day Forgiveness Plan, you'll explore relationship dynamics with your parents,
children, friends, partners, co-workers, bosses, yourself, and even God. With journaling, work and
Emotional Freedom Techniques (also known as "tapping"), you'll learn to live with more love; gain new
clarity on your life, lessons, and blessings; and discover a new level of personal freedom, peace, and wellbeing.
ForgivenessForgiveness doesn't mean agreeing with, condoning, or even liking what has happened. Forgiveness means letting go and knowing that-regardless of how challenging, frightening, or difficult an experience may seem-everything is just as it needs to be in order for you to grow and learn. When you focus on how things "should" be, you deny the presence and power of love. Accept the events of the past, while being willing to change your perspective on them.

Winning Over Worry | ...in the Presence of God


...from... Moments of Peace in the Presence of God


Sunset over the Pacific Ocean

Worry is really fear dressed in sheep's clothing.
Disguised as a friend, it betrays you when you are most vulnerable,
bringing before you images of what has been
and
images of what might be...
in its quest to steal your present and sabotage your future.
Low tide at Sunset over the Pacific Ocean

When you submit your anxious thoughts to God,
He can replace them with pure and praiseworthy thoughts.
Fear, stripped of it flimsy disguise,
is then left to
slink back into the shadows.
 God, thank you for filling my mind
with good thoughts
so that I can win my battle
against worry and fear. ~Amen

TWELVE YEARS IN THE GRAVE, A Memoir

If you followed the Jason Bourne film series, you'll most likely get behind the storyline of  TWELVE YEARS IN THE GRAVE-- with the exception, 'Twelve Years...' is  no movie... it is real.  .~I say again... it is real.

Sharing a link to a book written by a FB 'friend' living in China.  

TWELVE YEARS IN THE GRAVE is the memoir of Soleilmavis Liu who managed to conquer her oppressors and get out from under a decade of abuse via electronic mind control weaponry.  She was first attacked in December, 2001 by remote voice to skull and electromagnetic mind control technologies when she was studying for a Master`s Degree in Australia. At the time, she was unfamiliar with mind control technologies. Eventually, she came to learn of these technologies that are being secretly used or covered up by governments worldwide to control and harass the populace.  Linked here http://bit.ly/1bRzBw5  ...please share!
ADDITIONALLY, media outlets may contact Ms Liu here:

How-To Rescue a Conversation That's Gone Wrong


~ Our world is traversing in uncertain and troubling times friends. And one of the things I believe is causing much of our great divide, is poor communication. Period.

Given your advocacy work, I know you know, how essential, clear and genuine communication is, to achieving meaningful results-- at home, in business, in our communities and throughout the World.  And this is why I'd like to recommend, "How Conversation Works: Six Lessons for Better Communications."

As you grab for the next rung on the ladder to success, 'Conversations...' is a must add to your career portfolio.  This six lecture eCourse is available on DVD, instant download to your PC, or my favorite, the CD version-- which can be listened to while driving or working from home. 

Like an eagle in the sky, you’ll be amazed by how much you can learn by stepping back from conversations and examining how they operate. You’ll notice things you never picked up on before—like what kind of speaker you are, the strategies you typically rely on (often without realizing it), and the subtleties of the strategies others may use when speaking with you. You’ll find yourself putting these lessons into practice to create more effective dialogues from the very first lecture.
I was just reviewing the course description for Part 6, 'How to Maintain Relations with Talk'  (covering cooperative and competitive speaking styles)... and I had a quick, laugh-out-loud flashback of my piano teacher Mrs. Thomas, grilling me to make 'sure' I'd practiced my piano scales over the weekend.  Her 'eyes' were really doing the talking-- not her words, and you can best believe that I certainly didn't fail to practice my piano scales.
Learn new ways to communicate  - watch a free course preview here


At first, the newfound awareness you’ll acquire from How Conversation Works may cause you to become self-conscious when you speak, but the act of “conversational noticing” will soon become second nature. Before long, you’ll realize you have the tools to make yourself clearly understood, put others at ease, rescue a conversation that’s gone wrong—and keep conversations from going off course in the first place.
Phil Manker INTERIORS

Today's business savvy woman recognizes a wise investment.  Thus I'm inviting you to join kindreds from 'round the world in a "lifelong learning experience," with a selection of video and audio courses led by the world’s top professors and experts.  'Conversations...' is one such course and is now on sale for a limited time. 

Please learn more and let's stay connected via my website here.  ~djg
