Love Can Heal The World

love can healLove Can Heal The World

We are facing a world crisis that will continue to grow as long as we deny the power of love.  The lack of love breeds a ground for war.  Where there is war, we find desperation.  Each soul is born to bear love.  No love means no life.  The world is a cancerous monster right now denying love.  There is no way we can move forward and have hope for the future for our children if we do not face this epidemic.

What has happened to Paris is a reality check for mankind to seek a better way to exist.  God and Love are one and the same vibration.  The lack of it in any individual soul is creating a future of extinction.  We must ask ourselves why we have so much trust in the world’s knowledge when it is contrary to love and togetherness.  Our soldiers go to war, return home to a war they can not win because they would go to jail and to hell for defending themselves against selfish and greedy people.  They walk on land filled with hatred and self-righteousness.  There has to be individual change if we want hope in America.

Love is possible once people realize it is okay to love without loosing.  You love by allowing God to sit in your heart.  You deny the things of the world that keeps you uptight and selfish.  For sure, Paris is experiencing PTSD just as we are here in America simply because sudden trauma has visited their land.  Rape, murder, molestation, abuse, attack of any kind and natural disasters go on daily making our land a place of fear and desperation.

If we do not personally allow God to be the heart of our lives, love is denied resulting in a continued war zone.  Today let go of the world and allowed God to restore your heart and if He does not need to restore your heart, allow God to increase your love flow for the sake of your fellowman.  I am not asking you to be a fool, I am only asking you to be love and trust God to protect and guide you through this life time.  LOVE WILL NOT BE DENIED.

PTSD: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Is No Respecter Of Persons

PTSD: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Is No Respecter Of Persons

Ever since I was a child, I always wondered why people were so unhappy.  I watched my family and other families experience so much unhappiness and emotional pain often.  I remember when I finally saw my father cry.  His mother died of cancer.  He was never the same nor was our family.  When my grandmother was alive, the Fields family was strongly bonded together and supported each other through thick and then.  Grandmother’s death meant the end of family support.  No one was the same, I mean no one.

As quiet as it is kept, we all suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Once grandma was buried, we had to go on as though she never existed.  We just didn’t talk about it.  Granddaddy seems to have taken it the hardest heart attack after heart attack until he eventually died.   Her children who were my generation’s parents ended up practically without parents.  Our parents were zombies on the road to self-destruction.  You see back then African Americans did not seek counseling.  They just acted like not anything happened.

When my grandma died, no one asked me how I felt.  No one embraced me and told me everything is going to be alright.  And no one told me what I was feeling was normal which was abandonment.  My grandma was the only person in my life that ever seemed happy to see me.  She was gone and there was not anything I could do about it.  I still had to eat my lunch and go to school.

I want to share with you my books in hopes that my experiences will connect with your experiences and healing can begin.

Charge Of An Angel:
Love and Redemption Series Book 1 by Linda Diane Wattley

My name is Leona Tillard and I need your help. You see, I have been spending my whole life trying to know who I am. I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio, and a product of a temporary single-parent home, I was left without some pertinent information that could have possibly told me who I am. Eventually, still a child, my family structure evolved into a blended family situation. In silence, I cried far more than I laughed.

Don’t get me wrong, there was much love for me. I learned early in life that I was a very special little girl. People loved being in my presence, but more than anything, my body was always desired. I didn’t want for anything, life was good to me, I just didn’t understand love and what is considered being a normal human being. This is where I need your help. Will you listen to me as I tell you my story about my life? Tell me who really loved me. Am I really an angel or a freak of nature? Your help will be highly appreciated. In return, I promise to entertain you from beginning to end. Below find one of my thought processing moments. It came during a time I needed understanding. Until we meet, enjoy!

My body was betraying me in the worst way. “Oh, God, help me! I face you now in my naked and weakened state and beg you to save me.” I prayed silently.”

Book Review

Charge Of An Angel is book one in Linda Diane Wattley’s series titled Love and Redemption.

This is an important quote directly from the book: “Charge of an Angel will reveal why the urgent questioning of sexuality from the home to the pulpit. The children in this story have a lot to show us, let’s get started. They are anxious to share their stories even their parents are going to be in awe when they see who they really are.”

Character Leona Tillard will touch your heart as you read her childhood account. I am certain that as you read this book, you will either relate to some of the family dynamics from your own life or you might know a family with similar dynamics.

Sadly, families usually look wholesome and intact when viewed by an outsider. However, when you pull back the layers like an onion, the raw truth can burn your soul. In Leona’s story, her family has many layers and although she felt loved as child, her perceptions were from a child’s point of view.

Right from birth (like you and me) Leona was set on a path and her encounters wrote on the pages of her life’s story and deep in her heart and soul. The most telling thing that you will discover as you read, is Leona’s perception of herself, her deep questions and even conflicting messages that cause her to even question God.

For children who grown up in a dysfunctional home, this is how they think. I quote not to spoil the story, but to enlighten you so you will want to read further.

“We didn’t hear any more words after that. Sarah and I were just as quiet as Daddy and Priscilla.

In fact, Sarah was already asleep. I could hear snoring from across the room, which was something she normally didn’t do. I couldn’t believe what I had seen between her and Daddy.

I closed my eyes and tried to will myself somewhere other than where I was. I couldn’t help but wonder where my brother and my mother were. This new family thing just did not make me happy at all. I mean, trying to know myself was hard enough without this family mix. One minute I had a mother and then I had no mother. I had a big brother, then no big brother. Now I have two sisters and a brother to go with the one I already had. We were all lost and confused.

We just wanted to know where we belonged.

After that night, we did what we had to do to keep Priscilla and Daddy happy. Nobody cared how we felt. This life was about them. None of us should have been born. We had no parents. All of us were victims of circumstance. We were just sheep—sleeping, eating, and doing what we were told. If Daddy and Priscilla hadn’t gotten married, maybe Momma and Mark might have come back. We could forget about ever seeing them now.”

While reading I was faced with the core truths written on the pages and maybe more importantly between the lines. I wait for Book Two to be published, as I will need to find out where it goes from here. I invite you to read and open your heart and eyes to children around you in your life. This book has adult content.

I, (Theodocia McLean) endorse ‘Charge Of An Angel: Love and Redemption Series-Part 1’ by Linda Diane Wattley. I purchased this book from a Kindle format. Review was completed on March 28, 2017. I also read ‘Soldier With A Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously’ by Linda Diane Wattley (Great Read).

Soldier With A Backpack:
Living and Dying Simultaneously by Linda Diane Wattley

Soldier With A Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, the hidden love killer, is instrumental in creating a world of alienation in the human experience.

Soldier with a Backpack, Living and Dying Simultaneously is written to form a silent unity of hope and understanding for individuals experiencing or knowing someone with PTSD and to reveal a needed truth about it.

Linda D. Wattley grew up with a tainted trust in adults, now that she has become one herself; Author Wattley began to learn why adults were so unhappy. She realized that stress and trauma had molded her into someone who felt unworthy of love, yet there was still something else willing her to life, telling her to share with the world that sufferers of PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder are more than words could ever describe.

Author Wattley shares the experienced impact stress and trauma has on the human soul and the price we pay ignoring this reality. It is with great urgency she intimately shares her plight in life with her readers. Being mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically raped as a child, she survived by learning to exist in an inner world of divine peace.

Something happened to that little girl; she didn’t die nor did she live, yet much was lost while much was gained.

Book Review

Author Linda Diane Wattley’s memoir ‘Soldier With A Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously’ is packed with nuggets of pure truth meant to expose the evil that was meant to destroy her, show God’s greatness and attest to her healing from PTSD. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put her story down. I especially love memoirs, because it takes a special kind of strength to write a memory and share raw emotion and experience with the world.

If you enjoy reading memoirs that are a journey from hell into healing with ordained, anointed prayer behind the words to encourage others along their journey, this book is a must read.

Linda says, “Out of trauma, much drama occurs. Trauma has so many levels of appearing in our lives from the war zones where our soldiers witness death and the survival of death, vehicular accidents, murders, catastrophic disasters, illnesses, rape, sudden deaths of our loved ones; the list is unending.”

“Cycles can be broken when light is shined on reality. This is my purpose to shine light on the personal aftermath of trauma. ‘And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’ John 8:13.”

Follow Linda through her life, learn from her healing and willingness to share what most people would hide in the darkness. Enjoy the short, direct poems scattered throughout the book and learn how Linda activated the love of God in her life, so she can be a beacon of light (“messenger”) to those seeking healing form PTSD.

I (Theodocia McLean) endorses Soldier With A Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously (After The Storm Publishing Presents) by Linda Diane Wattley as her memoir from darkness into light. I purchased and reviewed this book from Kindle format. The review was completed on January 30, 2016.

This poem touched my heart.

I love someone with PTSD and I am one of the people I love.
Believe it or not dear friend, you still deserved to be loved.
Give love when you can and allow yourself to receive love often.
The people who love us deserves to be able to love us.

LOVE YOURSELF IN ANOTHER

 When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.
by Chief Tecumseh

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled.
For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of the ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
by M. Scott Peck

Surrender Is Faith

Surrender Is Faith

When we know love matters more than anything,
and we know that nothing else REALLY matters,

we move into the state of surrender.
Surrender does not diminish our power, it enhances it.

by Sara Paddison

Surrender is faith that the power of Love can accomplish
anything even when you cannot foresee the outcome.

by Deepak Chopra

Give up all bad qualities in you, banish the ego and develop the spirit of surrender.
You will then experience Bliss.

by Sri Sathya Sai Baba

The greatness of a mans power is the measure of his surrender.

by William Booth

The word “surrender” is often interpreted as giving up, as weakness, as admitting defeat.

Although this is one way to use the word, we will use it in a different way.

Surrendering means letting go of your resistance to the total openness of who you are.

It means giving up the tension of the little vortex you believe yourself to be and realizing the deep power of the ocean you truly are.

It means to open with no boundaries, emotional or physical, so you ease wide beyond any limiting sense of self you might have.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.

Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love.
We melt into another world, a realm of power within us.
The world changes when we change.
The world softens when we soften.

When what you feel on the inside surpasses what you see on the outside miracles will happen.
When you admire something in someone you are seeing a reflection of yourself.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. by Abraham Lincoln

A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest. by Irish Proverb

Famous Quote:

M-O-T-H-E-R
“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.

Don’t Live In Fear: Change Is A Way Of Life

Don’t Live In Fear: Change Is A Way Of Life

If we choose to remain as we are, fearing that change is painful, we live with fear.

When the heart weeps for what is lost, the spirit laughs for what it has found.

However compassionate we are, we can never see entirely into the mind of another.

Learn to trust that part of the mind that you can’t see.

The subtle parts of your mind will speak to you if you keep quiet long enough to let them.

Money Can Make A Difference Dealing With Stress

Money Can Make A Difference Dealing With Stress

Please stop thinking money is something bad or something that needs to be avoided
or that you are less spiritual if you have money.

Money gives you choices and opens opportunities that you would not otherwise have.
You can use money to help others in ways you would not be able to if you didn’t have money.

Money is just energy.
Money is not good.
Money is not bad.
Money is a personality magnifier.
Money will take a person’s personality and broadcast it to the world.
A person who truly cares about others will be shown to be even more caring.
A greedy, self-absorbed individual will become worse.
Money gives you control over your life.

Feel good about money and you will find it available to fix many problems in your life.

Money removes barriers in your life.

Money is not the key to happiness, but it sure does help.

I Am Loved and Accepted Exactly As I Am

okI Am Loved and Accepted Exactly As I Am,
Right Here and Right Now.

You must realize that you are now only a heap of conventions, habits, what society has made of you.
Once all these have left you, you realize that they were defenses and aggressions accumulated solely to maintain the ego.
by Jean Klein

You were never greater than you are right now, nor will you ever be.
Your worth is already complete and never changes, only your relationship to it evolves.
by Michael Tamura

To live a life you were not meant, is to create confusion within yourself.
This confusion you are feeling will only manifest itself negatively into your physical world.
You are here for a reason. You are here to provide a gift to this world.
Until you present your true self to the world. Your present to the world will go unopened.

When your mind starts telling you what you have to do to make everything okay, don’t buy into what it’s telling you.
The truth is, everything will be okay as soon as you are okay with everything. And that’s the only time everything will be okay.

Control Your Life’s Energy!

Control Your Life’s Energy!

I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued;
when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.

If you took one-tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem,
you’d be surprised by how well things can work out…
Complaining does not work as a strategy.
We all have finite time and energy.
Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals.
And it won’t make us happier.
by Randy Pausch

When we dislike someone, or feel threatened by someone, the natural tendency is to focus
on something we dislike about the person, something that irritates us.
Unfortunately, when we do this–instead of seeing the deeper beauty of the person and
giving them energy–we take energy away and actually do them harm.
All they know is that they suddenly feel less beautiful and less confident, and it is because we sapped their energy.
by James Redfield

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.
by Nikola Tesla

Mathematics expresses values that reflect the cosmos,
including orderliness, balance, harmony, logic, and abstract beauty.
by Deepak Chopra

Renewing Of The Mind

Renewing Of The Mind

All transformation begins with an intense, burning desire to be transformed.
The first step in the”renewing of the mind” is desire.
You must want to be different (and intend to be) before you can begin to change yourself.
Then you must make your future dream a present fact.
You do this by assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled.
By desiring to be other than what you are, you can create an ideal of the person
you want to be and assume that you are already that person.
If this assumption is persisted n until it becomes your dominant feeling, the attainment of your ideal is inevitable.

Don’t Take Anything Personally

Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you.
What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream.
When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
by Miguel Ruiz

All blame is a waste of time.
No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you.
The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration.
You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him,
but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.
by Wayne Dyer

According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness.
The first symptom is that you stop worrying.
Things don’t bother you anymore.
You become light-hearted and full of joy.
The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities.
And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous. (quoted by Carol Lynn Pearson in Consider the Butterfly).
by Deepak Chopra

New Blog Talk Interview

Charge Of An Angel:
Love and Redemption Series Book 1 by Linda Diane Wattley

My name is Leona Tillard and I need your help. You see, I have been spending my whole life trying to know who I am. I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio, and a product of a temporary single-parent home, I was left without some pertinent information that could have possibly told me who I am. Eventually, still a child, my family structure evolved into a blended family situation. In silence, I cried far more than I laughed.

Don’t get me wrong, there was much love for me. I learned early in life that I was a very special little girl. People loved being in my presence, but more than anything, my body was always desired. I didn’t want for anything, life was good to me, I just didn’t understand love and what is considered being a normal human being. This is where I need your help. Will you listen to me as I tell you my story about my life? Tell me who really loved me. Am I really an angel or a freak of nature? Your help will be highly appreciated. In return, I promise to entertain you from beginning to end. Below find one of my thought processing moments. It came during a time I needed understanding. Until we meet, enjoy!

My body was betraying me in the worst way. “Oh, God, help me! I face you now in my naked and weakened state and beg you to save me.” I prayed silently.”

Book Review

Charge Of An Angel is book one in Linda Diane Wattley’s series titled Love and Redemption.

This is an important quote directly from the book: “Charge of an Angel will reveal why the urgent questioning of sexuality from the home to the pulpit. The children in this story have a lot to show us, let’s get started. They are anxious to share their stories even their parents are going to be in awe when they see who they really are.”

Character Leona Tillard will touch your heart as you read her childhood account. I am certain that as you read this book, you will either relate to some of the family dynamics from your own life or you might know a family with similar dynamics.

Sadly, families usually look wholesome and intact when viewed by an outsider. However, when you pull back the layers like an onion, the raw truth can burn your soul. In Leona’s story, her family has many layers and although she felt loved as child, her perceptions were from a child’s point of view.

Right from birth (like you and me) Leona was set on a path and her encounters wrote on the pages of her life’s story and deep in her heart and soul. The most telling thing that you will discover as you read, is Leona’s perception of herself, her deep questions and even conflicting messages that cause her to even question God.

For children who grown up in a dysfunctional home, this is how they think. I quote not to spoil the story, but to enlighten you so you will want to read further.

“We didn’t hear any more words after that. Sarah and I were just as quiet as Daddy and Priscilla.

In fact, Sarah was already asleep. I could hear snoring from across the room, which was something she normally didn’t do. I couldn’t believe what I had seen between her and Daddy.

I closed my eyes and tried to will myself somewhere other than where I was. I couldn’t help but wonder where my brother and my mother were. This new family thing just did not make me happy at all. I mean, trying to know myself was hard enough without this family mix. One minute I had a mother and then I had no mother. I had a big brother, then no big brother. Now I have two sisters and a brother to go with the one I already had. We were all lost and confused.

We just wanted to know where we belonged.

After that night, we did what we had to do to keep Priscilla and Daddy happy. Nobody cared how we felt. This life was about them. None of us should have been born. We had no parents. All of us were victims of circumstance. We were just sheep—sleeping, eating, and doing what we were told. If Daddy and Priscilla hadn’t gotten married, maybe Momma and Mark might have come back. We could forget about ever seeing them now.”

While reading I was faced with the core truths written on the pages and maybe more importantly between the lines. I wait for Book Two to be published, as I will need to find out where it goes from here. I invite you to read and open your heart and eyes to children around you in your life. This book has adult content.

I, (Theodocia McLean) endorse ‘Charge Of An Angel: Love and Redemption Series-Part 1’ by Linda Diane Wattley. I purchased this book from a Kindle format. Review was completed on March 28, 2017. I also read ‘Soldier With A Backpack: Living and Dying Simultaneously’ by Linda Diane Wattley (Great Read).

Make It Happen Or Not

Make It Happen Or Not

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift.
Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing.
You get to choose. by Wayne W. Dyer

When you can accept yourself exactly as you are and
accept others exactly as they are you will finally have peace.
If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue.
Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge.
Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.
by Deepak Chopra

If the universe has given you the passion to want to do something,
then be 100% assured it will give you the ability as well.

You do know you can live your life the way you want to.
