She Reveals Her Backback

FIFTY YEARS LATER I REVEALED MY BACKPACK AND TODAY, I HAPPILY OWN IT!

I am a living witness, it pays to know your total self. There is so much to us. We are truly multidimensional in the unseen realities of ourselves. It is best we each learn to spend time with ourselves and explore our vibrations, feelings, thought processes and follow our inner pain see what’s really going on twenty four seven. I own everything about me. I realize there is so much about me that makes me a unique presence in this world. I love me with all my heart and soul.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is actually our soul surviving the pains of life. The more we are determined to nurture ourselves inside and out the more we find the best way to deal with occurrences of discomfort. If you know yourself well enough, and are conscious of the terrors of memories embedded in our invisible realities, you can develop the best way to silence the nightmares. First of all, learn how to watch yourself having the experience. It is just like watching television, change the station. Find the needed tools to trigger a blatant shift of attention. Not only be conscious of your focus then but always.

For instance, when it is cold outside and you have to walk in it, are you going to focus on the coldness or are you going to focus on the blessedness of being alive, or sing a song, laugh whatever it takes to get your attention on something better. It is a must practice to manage PTSD. Life is about right now and right now can be alright the moment you allow it.

When I wrote “Soldier With a Backpack Living and Dying Simultaneously”, I knew it would a secret weapon to combat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in a very special and unique way. God asked a lot of me. He wanted the world to see what was in my backpack and how I owned it and kept it moving knowing in the end, everything in it made and is making me who I am today. Happy! Blessed! Loved! Free! Anointed! Graced! Pleased!

Review Title: Soldier with a King James Bible

By Cat Shannon on November 6, 2015

“Author Linda Wattley has been through hell and listens to heaven to guide her way

back. It’s amazing that for the amount of pain and loss she has endured, her voice is full

of hope that she and all people can overcome the “what” and become the “who” they

are: survivors. Aspiring to find peace within the heart. Many look to religion to heal, but

most would settle for the coping mechanism Wattley has developed. Her optimism over

victimization should be bottled because too many of us would just give up. She is a

damaged but gentle soul and she wants to share her suffering and insight in hope of

throwing out a lifeline to those struggling to hang on.”

Heart Of A Soldier

Heart Of A Soldier

Message from Linda D. Wattley:  I just wanted to share with you a conversation I had with a woman last night who recently lost a family member (a soldier) that I knew.

The woman relayed that her nephew, whom the family believed had PTSD, was tragically taken from the world and the family is trying to come to terms with that disease, his loss, and how it affected him.

We talked for a good while and I brought up your book Soldier With A Backpack.  I told her how PTSD affected you, your family, and those loved ones around you.  We talked about how PTSD is a silent disease that is largely misunderstood.  I then let her know about your book and how it helps those understand a lot of what the disease is and how it effects all; not just the one who may have experienced a tragic event.

She asked for info on the book and I gave it to her.  She was very thankful that I took over an hour of my time to talk with her and not just brush her off.

Today, she called me and said they ordered your book and look forward to another conversation with me after they finish reading it.

Linda, your book has been a blessing to many and it still continues to reach many in their time of need.  I can not thank you enough for writing the book about PTSD and helping a lot of people to understand more on this silent disease.

The Past Is Not Today

georgebernardshaw161863The Past Is Not Today

Go back to the state you had as a child when you believed nothing was impossible.

Quiet the mind, and the soul will speak.
by Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati

When someone criticizes you it is because of their own fear and insecurity.

Each of us inevitable; Each of us limitless – each of us with his or her right upon the earth;
Each of us allowed the eternal purports of the earth;
Each of us here as divinely as any is here.
by Walt Whitman

You are struggling with yourself. It is a fight with your own mind.  Stop the resistance.
You can’t resist something that has already happened in the past.
You can’t resist something that may or may not happen in the future.
It’s all just a big waste of time and energy.

A Son Shares His Father’s Experience With Cancer

healingWhat is your attitude about life?

Attitude is one of the biggest factors that determine how we live our lives.

Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t you are correct.”

Our attitudes can turn what appear to be misfortunes into blessings.

Our attitudes can even save our lives.

I want to share with you a lesson I learned from my dad.

My dad lost his fight with cancer a little over a year ago.

What most didn’t know is that when he was first diagnosed he was given at most three years to live.

He turned three years into THIRTEEN.

The biggest reason was his attitude.

As a side note I hate when doctors give you a time limit on your life.  Most people take this as fact and end up living just about as long as the doctor gives them.

Doctors are human.  I’ve spent a lot of time with doctors outside the medical environment, “in real life”, playing cards or stuff like that.

There are times when I have thought, “This guy is a doctor?  Really?  How did he pull that off?  That is scary.”

Don’t get me wrong.  We have a lot of great doctors.  A lot.  I’m just saying doctors are not perfect.

So how did my dad’s attitude extend his life?  Was it just his positive thoughts that kept him alive?  Of course not.

He still sought out medical treatments and kept up with the latest developments, including a lot of trials.

He even still had moments where his emotions got the best of him. But for the most part he accepted his present situation, but knew he could do things to make it better.

It was like okay here is where we are, what do we need to do to get to there?

And many, many times over I saw him get to “there”.

There never was any, “My life is terrible.  Why did this have to happen to me?”

I never saw any constant complaining or self-pity because he knew if he started down that road he was giving himself a death sentence.

Most people like to complain.  It actually gives them a little relief from their life while they are doing it.

But constant complaining is like a drug.  It may make you feel better at the time but it is doing harm in the long run and the longer you do it the more harm it is going to do to you.

By not constantly complaining and taking control of his life and having an incredible attitude my dad added many healthy years to his life.  In fact you wouldn’t have even known he had cancer until the last year.

Do you think a numerology reading can give you insight to your health?  I know it can!

Dear Racist

Dear Racist,

First of all I want to thank you for reading my letter.  You do not know me and I don’t know you but I have felt your presence many times.  Yesterday I started my day thanking God for waking me up and allowing me to have a job.  There was a warm and grateful smile on my face as I greeted strangers I passed as I walked through the parking lot to enter the doors to my job.  As I turned the corner to get on the elevator, I was greeted with a dark, cold and fearful unseen vibration that made me wonder if Satan himself had entered the building.  I took a deep breath and proceeded to get on the elevator.  With a smile on my face I pushed the button to the floor I was heading to.  In the meantime there I was just you and me.

You stood there like you were made out of stone definitely was not giving up any eye contact.  You just stood in the elevator as far from me as you could almost as if you were not breathing.   Looking up with a smile, I silently thanked God I did not have to carry that spirit of racism in my soul.  I was glad you kept your distance because shielding me from your cruel vibrations was already difficult.

I don’t understand how you choose to hate someone you know not anything about.  Obviously, it is quite a chore to live with this conscious choice.  But do you know what it is doing to you?  There is no way hatred, anger; disgust, evil thoughts, and a need to attack and kill does not have a price.  These vibrations harm and kill the body.  Love cannot exist with these vibrations.  You can’t turn it off and on to love and return to hate.  It does not work like that.

How do I know how detrimental your state of existence is?  Easy, look at yourself.  Your consumption of hate is so great that you can’t keep it to yourself.  You have to find some kind of way to release it.  So powerfully overwhelming you have to release it on innocent people.  It kills you so you kill people.  It would take aliens from another world for you to realize there is only one race, the human race, a race God created.

I pray that you be set free from this demon of hate so you can live a healthier and warm life.  Your life is valuable.  My life is valuable.  God made us to love.  Just stop it, you don’t need it.  There is so much more to feel and experience in this life.

God Bless

Micro VS Marco

Bambi-vs-Godzilla-on-Bad-Language-w480-h480_thumb

Micro VS Marco

Keep It Simple

When we  take a real look at life, we must admit the journey is quite overwhelming.  Just when you think you have figured it out, something happens and rocks your world.  The key is to see the whole picture.  You are a micro in a macro world. We don’t think about it we just walk into it like it is normal to be infested with negativity and detachment.

Look at yourself, you are just a single unit of existence.  You are free to bask in this state of being at home but once you walk out the door of your house, your single unit is forced into the macro existence of millions of micros forcing a chaotic and loveless macro that is usually very harsh and selfish.

You get in your car and head to work.  You notice many micros looking very numb and unhappy.  How are you looking to others today?  Are you contributing to the massive heartless macro or are you able to separate yourself from the energy field it possess by smiling and counting your blessings?

The macro does not have to push you around and put you in survival and victim mode if you empower your micro to be here but not here based on what is permeating from your being.  You must make your home heaven on earth.  It has to be the place where you regenerate positive vibrations within your being.  Your environment has to be vibrating a high frequency of good, love, peace, strength, freedom and acceptance of self.

When you make this a priority, you can step out into the macro and not be killed mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  You can also be a contributor to the mini micros who are establishing a base of positive vibrations to exist in a better state of being.  This is a lifestyle with great rewards.  Establishing a self-nurturing base for your self gives you power that grows and become a light in a dark world.

Save your self and love doing it.  It is a beautiful journey.  When you do this, the macro has to back off and emerge with its own kind.

There Is A Magic About You

selfThere Is A Magic About You

Today we are going to slow down and see how important we are to our self.  We need our self to learn, grow and love.  What is needed by everyone is space to see.  When our lives are filled with clutter of things, people and activity, we cannot see the forest for the trees.  Facing the world today, we are going to set everyone free to be just who and what he or she may be.  Let the God they serve give them what they deserve.  No longer are our views of what seems best for others are going to control our actions if we see early on it does not make a difference.  It comes a time when becoming less because we’re reaching for others is not acceptable.  Instead, we are going to keep the strong strong by respecting, acknowledging, nurturing and blessing them in unique ways revealed by our hearts.

No longer are we going to drag the weak  because usually the weak are selfish and use our compassion as a means of obtaining what they are capable of getting for themselves.  We are gong to love them with a trusting love that their God will see them through.  Like us who have experienced pain and suffering of some kind and had to move forward so it is with our loved ones.  They must feel the pain to grow if we keep giving them band aids they will never mature or become strong enough to come out of needy mode.

Our love will be the right love where we know for a fact things do get better with or without our two cents.  Save those two cents for positive things that are flourishing.

Love confidently!  Love your self enough to say no sometimes and yes when it is fruitful. We all have a journey even our loved ones.

Love Can Not Be Replaced

loveLove Can Not Be Replaced

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear,
an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
by Leo F. Buscaglia

Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what
they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.
by Wayne Dyer

The best way to get rid of the pain is to feel the pain.
When you feel the pain and go beyond it, you’ll see there’s a very intense love that is wanting to awaken itself.
by Deepak Chopra

Happiness comes from within.
It is not dependent on external things or on other people.
You become vulnerable and can be easily hurt when your feelings of security
and happiness depend on the behavior and actions of other people.
Never give your power to anyone else.
by Brian L. Weiss

You are ready for a change.
Just start.
Do something to start the change.
Don’t worry about if you are making a correct decision.
It doesn’t have to be a correct decision.
Once you take the initial step (right or wrong) you will be guided.
The correct decisions will come to you.
But not until you take that first step. Just start.

Do not react to your feelings…

Do not react to your feelings… create with them.

Don’t ask what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive and go do it.
Because what the world needs is people to come alive.
by Howard Thurman

Instead of thinking it will be hard.
Start thinking it will be easy.  Try it.
You might be surprised.

You know what you need to do.
Don’t let the fear of the unknown stop you.

Once you truly make up your mind to do something
the universe instantly sets things in motion to help you.

Give Your Self Time

timeGive Your Self Time

The only thing holding you back is yourself.

Do not react to your feelings… create with them.

Learn from the things that irritate and aggravate you the most.  They are there for a reason.

I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention.
To not be like your parents.
To not be like your friends.
To be yourself.
To cut yourself out of stone.
by Henry Rollins

You may be surprised at how many good things or people you have let slip
through your life because you chose to see things in a negative way.
