U turn permitted

Guest Blogger @Crystal Griffith w Radiant Joy Consulting says: U-turns Permitted!

Today, over the course of a 16 hour trip I took 5 u-turns. I haven’t taken 5 u-turns in a year, let alone a single day. And yet each one was necessary in the moment.

#1 – needing to get back on the right track

#2 – realizing what I thought was the best path wasn’t

#3 – needing a pitstop to rest a moment

#4 – being on completely the wrong road

#5 – being in the wrong lane due to a road hazard

Each u-turn had a specific purpose and all have life application. Ask yourself, do I need a yoU turn? Which would apply for your need right now #1, 2 ,3 ,4 or 5? Remember, a yoU turn is necessary when you need to adjust your course. It’s a complete 180 from the current trajectory to the best trajectory for your life.

Even with the u-turns today, we encountered new places, tons of wildlife, sunset stars, maine lobster in the middle of elk fest, both the Atlantic and the Pacific river starts, all 4 seasons on one road, a bulging challenge with 3 bulls, eating in a 100 year old jail, new memories with friends. A u-turn does not have to be failure, but an opportunity for new and exciting from a different perspective.

Need help with making that yoU turn? PM Crystal Griffith with Radiant Joy Consulting.

The new route will compute on God’s GPS and guess what, it’s the best route!

Make a Memory

Wow. We are out to eat and lo and behold I see the longing to make a memory on Eighties Band Night at Mo’s Irish Pub.

As I watch women flood the floor to dance with each other, my heart understands their loneliness AND their desire to simple to have some fun. Sadly, I saw spouses turn their wives down to dance due to what? Lack of security? Embarrassment? Unwillingness to be seen with her or them? An opportunity to make a memory cane and went..

Hey!! Make memories. Don’t be bound by fear of man, need for approval or feeling not good enough.

Enjoy you. If married – enjoy your spouse. Get over it friend! Love the one who leads you to be uncomfortable and free… Dance. Sing. Love. Laugh. Remember to make a memory…

Love-d

God uses storms.

This speaks to me today. I have a number of men and women who are feeling as if their lives are being sabotaged right now….this minute – God uses storms.

We don’t know WHY life piles up and it “feels” as if God and everyone around is against us. But, is that truth? It “feels” true but how can the One Who made us be against us? How is it we think God is not for us, does not like us and His sole purpose is to teach us lessons so we will obey better.. Do not allow lies of never finishing, never being good enough, never getting caught up, never knowing yourself, never… get the best of you. Instead – receive Truth in that place of feeling overwhelmed and sabotaged… with Intention. Decide. New decision.

My thoughts? It is our response that determines how we maneuver through the water. God talks to us and we get to respond to Him and do our part. Our part is moving forward. Our part is remaining in peace. Our part is choosing life in the midst of death. Our part is remaining kind when we want to scream bloody murder and harm ourselves. Our part is not losing our cool with us and those around us. Our part is taking care of what is right in front of us. Our part is putting one foot in front of the other. Our part is going back to something we had instructions. Sometimes we rock on and move in and out of other places we want to obey but there is one place we choose NOT to obey and always feel undone because its so big in our mind and heart…it weighs on us because now we see how key our obedience was then and is now…

We think it is the doing… we think it is the getting it done and YES we have things we need to get done…but if we allow those things to control us OR use those things AGAINST us then we will be undone and devastated and distracted by the negative… BIG BREATH. You are NOT what you have done or have NOT done. You are NOT the devastation.

Ok. So, maybe you are in a storm and it feels you are devastated and it feels overwhelming and it feels like where do I start?

Start with one thing. Brush your teeth. Comb your hair. Get dressed. Smile at your face in the mirror. Validate your existence. Validate your life. Validate your God Who loves you and wants you to know His love in a storm or in a success…

I love you – Just do the next one thing…which might be feed yourself or the one with you or BOTH and then breathe…
One thing.
One thing at a time..
One box at a time.
One pile at a time.
One drawer at a time.
One call at a time.
One step at a time…

Until soon and much love – Remember – God uses storms.

Change you

At times circumstances remain the same. You beg God. Command demons. Cry. Fast. Still there you are. Then it makes sense. You realize there is more to where you are in life than meets the eye. You have more say-so than you thought. You can change you.

Change yourself and how you see you in your circumstance. New view. New perspective. Heavenly angle. All of a sudden you are free from the pressure and pain of pushing that rock up hill. You realize the emotional tirade you live in that destroys you and your surroundings has been your superpower. But it’s not working for you is it?

You have a new superpower. You have power to change you. Permission granted friend. Respect yourself. See the good. See the life you give and live. Change intention. Change you.

Permission granted

Permission granted to live, love and laugh. Within you lies life.

Inside you is LOVE.

Intentional living lives in you.

You have the capacity of greatness alive in you.

Purpose and plans live to unfold in your great adventure called life.

See you in Light.

See you in Love.

Sit still for 5 minutes today.

Laugh in the face fear, facts and failure.

Celebrate instead of complain.

No matter what you are facing, you face it with Them inside you – you cannot fail.

A different you

Life can be a journey but for most my life it was a destination. It’s only been the past 10 years or so when I decided to explore a new me. The other me was afraid to disappoint anyone but especially those in authority. I felt I had no option than to obey even without relationship. This area ruled my being. Unable to say no was how I handled my inner and outer world. I was indecisive, unstable and unable to be happy with myself. This has changed though it took what seems like a century. I’m not as fearful. I do not feel like I’m a failure. I have not ditched authority – I just now realize I’m in authority too. This means I have input for my own situations. This was critical to step into.

Interestingly today is my 17th wedding anniversary. I’ve had a lot of changes take place over the last almost 20 years. It’s been an adventure!

Be encouraged to continue taking the steps toward knowing yourself. You are worth it and in the process you might find a different you- a Brave new you. You may find yourself learning new skills and becoming a better you. A different path. The same path. A new respect. A change in career. Giving more. Living more. Loving more. Not everyone will like or embrace your change. Not everyone will desire your renovation. You have to decide. Some want to control you – not get to know you. Some see you as a project not a person to relate to. That’s okay. You do you. Embrace the different new you.

Free gift for you

Become a different you!

DeJaVu w Crystal McClung

dé·jà vu

noun

a feeling of having already experienced the present situation.

I have had dé·jà vu my entire life. Moments in time, as if it’s happened before. There are many theories of why this happens. Feel free to google those but in this moment I want to share my working definition.

These moments of absolute clarity down to the very fabric of a curtain, time of day, furniture placement and location often take me aback. I’ve come to learn for me they are prophetic moments that when they do come In that dé·jà vu moment, they are a confirmation of where I am supposed to be.

Tonight I had another one. I have only lived in my home since October. All day I’ve been preparing the basement area for another Identity Vision Board Workshop tomorrow. As I picked something up it hit, full blown, a moment in time and yet I had been here before. No mistaking the curtains that had been left by the previous owner, the classroom setup, the time, etc. And in that moment I had confirmation of where I was physically, leading in passion, feeling in emotion, and healing in life. I welled up, thankful for all things.

How do you know you are right where you’re supposed to be? God confirms His best plans in many ways. Take a moment and ask Him. Expect Him to answer; He will. You have a place here. One of honor, destiny, planning, and love. Receive it from Him today.
