Defining your Life’s Purpose

jeri_devaleIt is difficult to know what your purpose in marriage is if you haven’t articulated to yourself what the meaning and purpose of your life is…and your life’s meaning comes from the gratification of fulfilling your purpose and direction.  So let’s start… here are commonly held examples of life’s purpose.  Yours may be very different.  If you believe in God your life’s purpose may be to know, love and serve God, and the God in all things.  If you don’t believe in God your life’s purpose might be to know and serve the energy of love or the highest consciousness there is in your life and with your family and with the human race and the planet earth and to be of service.….or it can be to live up to your highest potential as a human being, or it can be to have the most joy and pleasure you can. Then when working together with someone else…the question becomes how can we work together to help each other reach our highest goals and potential….what does that look like? How do we do that? Send me by email any questions you may have and what you have come up with to define your life’s purpose and any progress you have in then joining with your spouse and family members and larger community to put it all together.  Remember to put it all into the light for the highest good, and not to impose your will on others.  You are creating harmony here also not just serving love and happiness…love and happiness will be short lived…if you want a long lasting marriage…you have to focus on and have as a part of the mix the energy of Harmony.

Happiness in Marriage and Life?

jeri_devaleSo many times people feel they are planning their lives but a good percentage of the time we are just winging it unless we make agreements not only with others but also with ourselves… People who are the happiest usually are living through their purpose and intention… and strategic planning. Have you even defined it for yourselves? Do you then make a to do list of how you and your spouse and your children can work together to accomplish these goals? I teach transcendence in Marriage. More on this tomorrow. This teaching keeps you away from blaming each other and promotes good communication.

Great New Teaching

jeri_devaleDear Brave Hearts,

We can as a group help make fantastic changes for our lives, our families, our governments, our prosperity, our world. I’m sure many of you have heard the phrase that when 2 or more are gathered together in my name I am there also.

Well this is how it magnifies… if you are one person and you visualize something like prosperity for all.  It only has the energy of one person… for each new person you add it is 7 times the energy that goes out into the universe on this thought.  So if you have even 30 people visualizing you have the energy of 210 people thinking the same thing radiating out into the universe.  Here is the trick though… you must send it out pure…you can’t have any of your pictures of how something you want can come about. After we say what it is we want to visualize we must always say this is done with free will and for the good of all… the most important step.  Otherwise if you cross other people’s will it can backfire.  So if you would like to participate with this send me an email at devale42@gmail.com telling me so…and add one wish about changes you would like to see and as soon as I get at least 30 people I will set up a time we can do this together…when  you email me please tell me what time zone you are in. Thanks. We can also join then with other groups who might be doing the same thing allowing even more energy on our positive thoughts. My love to you all.

Empowering Yourself and Your Relationships

jeri_devaleWhen you deliberately choose to do something to try and please someone you feel more fulfilled and experience a sense of freedom as you feel this is your choice…so this action is taken in love and you usually feel pleasure doing it.…Many of us forget paying attention to this…In relationships we get scared that we might lose someone if we aren’t trying to please them all of the time or we fear we might get punished by them. We then take this action out of fear not love. So when we are doing something we feel we have to do, even if we really don’t want to do it,  we sometimes resent it, and therefore don’t feel nourished by it. Try this week to focus on deliberately choosing whatever actions you take this week and how that makes you feel…Email me the results.

Success – Happiness & Enlightenment

jeri_devaleSome people think that if you are enlightened you will be feeling bliss all of the time. Nice thought, but the nature of enlightenment is that you are not attached to feeling bliss or sadness…you do sort of feel a sense of deep peace…but remember wanting to achieve success or happiness or bliss as a permanent fixture doesn’t work as it isn’t in reality. It keeps you stressed out and therefore shut down in some ways. Nothing is constant. Reality is a flowing river… Success and happiness is not permanent… something to be achieved and then you have it for the rest of your life. That is why enlightened masters never say they are enlightened masters because it is egotistical. An enlightened master never asks himself that question. For an enlightened master Love is…peace is…joy but you can actually feel other things like sadness at the same time…you just learn not to fuel it…and instead direct your attention to where love and joy is.

More on Enlightenment!

jeri_devaleDear Brave Hearts,

Besides unlearning thought patterns based on fear and instituting thought patterns based on love, trust, and forgiveness and fueling the 5 virtues, we also detach from the 5 passions of the mind… we then move to feel God realization…and choose to connect the circuit.  I feel the connection with God and Love in all things and I respond to this with a YES…and so I say “thank you” every moment I can, with every breath for being here and how wondrous it is. We need to continually express our true nature of love, trust and forgiveness…We will then feel the cosmic kiss that results in excited participation in life. How to feel this kiss more often is explained in my book “Kissing Our Way to Enlightenment“.

I love you,
Dr. Jeri DeVale

God Actualization & Enlightenment

jeri_devaleDear Brave Hearts,

Enlightenment  is God Realization actualized. It is a circuit.The first part of it is: Self and God realization where we come to understand that we are more than the some of our parts…and that extra part is our connection with God and all that is.  It is the awareness that our divine soul is immortal and living as a spotlight in our hearts. We, then can shine and give out this great light and love to the world by actualizing this awareness in each moment. As a course in miracles says and also Maryanne Williamson, and other enlightened people, “Enlightenment is achieved when there is an unlearning of the thought pattern based in fear and a relearning of thought patterns based on love and forgiveness.” I have been saying that in many ways already in daily awakener where I have tried to make you aware of the 5 passions of the mind  all of which are thought patterns based in fear so that you might see them for the illusions they are..and choose to direct your mind to love and forgiveness..then most importantly…on a daily basis you have  actualized enlightenment.  Enlightenment doesn’t exist unless you complete this circuit.  God realization is a call to action.  Enlightenment is responding to this call and saying yes. Enlightenment only exists if you choose both.  So for enlightenment to have any meaning, we must choose to use it and direct our mind to open our hearts to love and forgiveness and to send this peace to ourselves, the earth, and all that is. This isn’t always easy.  We have to be courageous…it is inside of us.

Thank you… thank you… and thank you… & the 5 virtues

jeri_devaleThe negative effects of the 5 passions of the mind is greatly reduced when you balance them out with cultivating the 5 virtues.  They are Forgiveness (tolerance), contentment, detachment, discrimination and humility.  St. Francis was a prime example of someone living in humility and tolerance.  I have found the best way to cultivate these is to cultivate gratitude and it somehow feeds all of the other virtues.  Your eyes then will be looking all day long for something to be grateful for.  Waking up and savor smelling a cup of coffee in the morning and say thank you and having that to start your day.  Enjoying your shower in the morning and feel the sensuality and pleasure of it and say thank you…talking to and hugging your children, your mates, your animals…and say thank you…thank you …. thank you…step out of your door and say thank you to the wind…the trees…the flowers….thank you …thank you.  Trees are our silent sentinels…they help absorb the bad stuff in the air for us.  Thank you then becomes like a mantra which is a series of words that we repeat over and over to help us keep us focused in a positive direction..so thank you… thank you… thank you. Give gratitude this whole holiday season no matter what your busy mind might be thinking…thank everything …every minute of the day…and your new year will be filled with blessings.  The blessings already are Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

With Love always and in all ways,
Dr. Jeri DeVale

A Life of Limitless Possibilities

jeri_devaleWhen we are fueling our false self we always look through the eyes of lack…Our true self knows better. It knows that we can co-create anything we want. We have limitless possibilities to co-create health, wealth and happiness, and the most important element which is to create meaning in our lives. This can bring us limitless joy and awareness. Power is in awareness not money or control over others. Power is the ability to flow with the river, and be able to say Wow and most wondrous at every moment, even when you lose everything you own. As you feel your connection with all things great and small you invite the whole world in and swallow it whole in love and it shoots you back out in many dimensions….so we have to continually learn more and more about fueling and loving our true selves. More to come.
