All You Need Is One YES.

If you believe in something, no matter how trivial it may be to someone else, or how many no’s you  may get, all you need to do is keep trusting and believing that you will hear your one yes, to make things possible.

How may times will you continue pushing forward until you get your yes?

Well my dear husband kept pushing forward after one no, then a yes that quickly turned into a no, and finally his third try he got his yes!

You see, my dear husband is very determine to follow through on just about everything he feels strong and passionate about.  He will not leave one stone unturned, big or small, if he believes there is a chance he will get his yes.

So, a year ago,so he thought, my dear, dear husband bought a water hose that he never used.  It was still in the original wrapping with the tags still attached.  He kept it in a clean and safe place, but some how unbeknownst to him, the nozzle became corroded by turning green and brown not only on the outside but inside the nozzle as well.

So, we take it back to the store where he thought he purchased it.  He didn’t have the receipt, but by him having a membership with this  particular store they were able to key in his membership number and pull up his purchase history which included the item and the exact location the transaction took place.

That’s where it was discovered that not only did he not purchased the water hose from that location but he had bought it two years ago.

Even after hearing the dreadful no, followed by the unacceptable words of explanation  to him; from two employee’s as to why they could not accept the two year old water hose my dear, dear husband  just stands there.

He begins again to state his case as to why all the reasons and ways that they could say yes to him.  Finally he smiles and picks up his defected water hose, and out the door we go.

The next day my…you know…my dear, dear husband and I attends an event that just happens to have hundreds of vendors, and blessed be; one of the vendors is the store where he purchased the water hose in question.  Again he explains his case to the merchant only this time I am not with him because I am browsing  other vendor’s tables.

When all of a sudden, I see him walking very fast towards me with this huge cresant smile on his face.  He begins to express to me that he has to go back to the huge and distance parking lot where we had parked the car to get this water hose because a young lady told him that he could exchange the water hose for a new one.

Though I was very happy for his excitement I had to asked him the question.  Before we take that long walk back to the parked car did you explain to the young lady that you purchased the water hose two years ago?

He quickly goes back to the young lady and explain that he purchased the water hose two years ago while I waited for him on another floor.

Within minutes my dear heart was back at my side, and needless to say we didn’t have to go to the car to get that traveling water hose.

Okay y’all about three weeks has past, and we are on our way to a third location of the same store to purchase some new items.  After we finish our transactions and he renews his membership, my guy goes into his story line about that corroded water hose that he purchased two years.

When the cashier told him he could bring it back the next time he comes, to my surprise my dear, dear guy says, “Oh I will be right back it’s in the trunk of my car”.

Needless to say I did not go back into the store with him for obvious reasons.  But I must say believing and trusting in something be it your passion, purpose, principles, or the like even when others say no,  when you keep believing you will eventually get your  yes, when Jesus says YES.

And when Jesus says YES, you are  likely to get more than you could imagine.

You see, when my husband came out of that store, he didn’t just get a new water hose, but he got a longer and  upgraded one!

What are you believing in today?  Because when Jesus say YES, who can say no.

In my book, Yes Speak To Our Hearts, Holy Spirit – Through Our Daily Practice of Listening, Recognizing, and Using Your Unlimited Gifts and Power,  I give a list of inspirational melodies that are gifts to our souls.  Gifts that can keep us trusting and believing that we will get our YES if Jesus says so.

I just love, love, love the gift that Michelle Williams ft. Beyonce’ and Kelly Rowland sings called “Say Yes”  some of the words to the song are… “When Jesus say yes, nobody can say no” take a listen for yourself and allow my dear husband story and this song be a reminder to keep believing if you don’t get your yes the first time.

Until the next time,  your YES, is on the way if Jesus says Yes.

Soulfully Speaking,

Hadiah

Nine Months of Laboring…What Did You Give Birth To?

20180611_180852Have you been carrying a passion, a dream, a gift inside of you since January and now that it is September…nine months later and you are still having labor pains or nothing new  has developed, nor has anything manifested yet?

Have you been ignoring what’s growing inside of you, or have you been pulling and pushing and moving in the wrong directions?  Do you feel like you are standing on infertile grounds leaving you believing that good things will not grow from within you?

Have you been feeding and nurturing your baby, project, vision, your passion, etc.  with the love, consistency, and the motivation that you had when you first started your labor in January?

If not, then that may well be the reason your baby, your project, your vision, your passion , your gift hasn’t birth yet.  You may well be still feeling the labor pains because you haven’t given birth to the many different stages of carrying your passion inside of you.

In order to reduce the pain, one must keep feeding it consistently with healthy, nurturing thoughts and actions in order for the beautiful gift to be born.

Are you ready to give birth to your beautiful well needed gift?  If so, Hadiah would love to be your birthing coach who will assist and support you doing your labor pains.

BREATHE, LIVE, LAUGH, and LOVE

So, I just finished watching season 13 episode 24 of the T.V. Show, Grey’s Anatomy.

During this episode, Elizabeth, one of the doctor’s was expressing to Dr. Webber, that she had spent her whole life in hospitals, and she felt the need to see everything that’s not the inside of a hospital.

She also realizes her need to travel, explore, hike, and breathe…really breathe away from monitors, blood, sterile gowns, and saving other people’s lives.  Elizabeth became aware that she wanted her own life, and that now was the time for her to live.  Which meant she had to quit saving others in order for her to save her own life, and ultimately save herself.

Sometimes in life we all must know when it’s time to live a little for self, and sometimes that may mean we have to quit some things, or move away from what we may have been spending our whole life doing  in order to  explore other people, places and things, so we can really breathe, live, laugh, and love not only others but to love ourselves more deeply.

Are you facing some things you must give up temporarily or permanently, in order to find your path, so you may live more freely and completely?

Are you ready to breathe, live, laugh, and love yourself more?

Hadiah’s Holistic Haven is a space where you can explore different tools to guide you in the practice of breathing more deeply in order  to find your happy loving self.

Feel free to explore www.hadiahsholistichaven.com today.

I Hear…I See…I Do

20180705_165804

Confucius, once said, “I hear and I forget.  I see and I remember.   I do and I understand.”

Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D., once said, “If you want to learn something read about it. If you want to understand something, write about it.  And if you want to master something teach it.”

Hadiah says, “If you want the best version of yourself then it is wise to practice daily some form of prayer.   It is wise to practice daily some form of meditation.  And it is wiser to daily  put your practice into motion.”

It is in the doing that we understand ourselves, it is in the teaching and learning about ourselves that we become masters of ourselves.  It is through our daily practice that we become the best versions of ourselves.

Practice, practice, practice is what it takes to create and to sustain the best versions of ourselves.  No, it ain’t easy, but it is necessary for ourselves and for the planet.

Is your daily practice creating the best version of you?  Are you allowing your best version to be heard, seen and understood?

For more support in your daily practice Hadiah’s Holistic Haven is standing by to be of service to you.

Until the next time, keep practicing  being the best version of you.

Soulfully Speaking,

Hadiah

I’m Blessed…You’re Blessed!!!

 

 

93B4C374-C635-4D49-A914-C18A9BCD0E8AI just love Charlie Wilson’s song “I’m Blessed” featuring T.I.  I remember  on April 4, 2009, I was listening to the radio, and I heard Charlie speak the words, “I do not want to die to the streets” and for reasons unknown to me at the time I hurried to write those words down on the above yellow piece of paper.  The energy from Charlie’s words touched me so deeply that I was compelled to pray for him.  I felt his truth in him asking God to bless him one more time.

Today, May 3, 2018 I am listening to his song, and it is bringing  joy to my heart.  It’s a reminder that God is still answering prayers, and blessing us everyday.

It really brings to life the Eight Beatitudes in the book of Matthew chapter 5 which are:

1. You’re blessed when you ‘re at the end of your rope.  With less of you there is more of God and His rule.

2. You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you.  Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.

3. You’re blessed when your’re content with just who you are – no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.

4. You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God.  He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.

5. You’re blessed when you care.  At the moment of being ‘care-full,’ you find yourselves cared for.

6. You’re blessed when you get your inside world- your mind and heart-put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.

7. You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight.  That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.

8. You’re blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution.  The persecution drives you even deeper into God’s kingdom.

That chapter goes on to  tell us why we are here on earth… “you’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world.”

How are you being light to the world today?  What are you praying for today?   How you doing?…BLESSED YES!  What are you grateful for today?

Turn to page 39 of my book, and meditate on the prayer “Use Me”, to be grounded in God’s light, life, and love.

Until the next time,

Soulfully Speaking,

Hadiah

Feel and Name That Emotion

20180402_123621


We all experience many different kinds of feelings and emotions throughout the course of the day, it’s a natural phenomenon, but it is how we digest those emotions that will create an unhealthy or healthy outcome.

So, what are you thinking about right now, and how is it making you feel in this present moment?

Can you name that feeling/emotion?

Do you know where that thought came from which has produce this current feeling?

Do you understand why you are feeling a particular  emotion from that thought?

Is it a negative emotion or a positive emotion?

Does that thought and emotion make you want to react or does it allow you to respond before you create some kind of action?

What is the intention for creating such an action?

Will that reaction or response bring on more negative or more positive emotions or feelings?

What I know for sure is that in order for a healthy outcome to occur during the ups and downs of our daily emotions we must be able to feel and name each emotion.

It is from that space of awareness we begin to discover and understand what triggers our emotions, and then we can find the best possible solution towards a healthy state of being.

In my book, Yes Speak To Our Hearts, Holy Spirit – Through Our Daily Practice of Listening, Recognizing, and Using Your Unlimited Gifts and Power I share on page 79, how I came into the awareness of my emotions on one particular day, and how I was able to feel and name that emotion associated with having an overworked mental thing.

Take a read now then feel and name your emotion, so you too can maintain or come back to your peaceful state of being.

Until the next time, be true to your feelings.

Calming Down The Winds

20160922_133636

When we are connected and grounded in Mother Earth, our power is always on.

In the early hours of Friday, March 2, 2018, we had a high wind warning in effect until late Saturday, March 3, 2018, with a northwest wind 30 to 40 mph and gust up to 70 mph.

The roaring of the wind, the rolling trash bins and broken tree limbs heighten our senses, and brought us into an awareness of the matter at hand.

In some cases, schools, governments, and airports were closed, or had delays.  Many businesses and homes were without power either for a short while, or for the entire duration of this warning.

This power outage left many feeling vulnerable, frustrated, disappointed, separated, upset, lost and disconnected from the source and power of electricity.

We may not have control over the outer forces of the winds, or how much time it will take Pepco to restore our power back on, but we do have a divine power source  that never losses power if we stay connected to that source.  Our power source provides us with gifts, tools and practices we can use to regain  and turn our inner power back on when we are experiencing warnings signs of a cold front, or gusting winds are about to occur that may knock our power out for a short or long period of time.

For gifts, tools, and practices we can use for turning our power back on and to regain our balance, calmness, peace, understanding and connectedness to our true power source, God turn to pages 164-165 of my book, Yes Speak To Our Hearts Holy Spirit-Through Our Daily Practice of Listening, Recognizing, and Using Your Unlimited Gifts and Power.

To purchase your copy, or a copy for someone else you may go to http://Xlibris.comhttp://Amazon.com, or http://BarnesandNoble.com.

Until the next time, we can all keep our power flowing!

Hear Our Prayer, O Lord

I love chanting the hymnal, Hear Our Prayer, O Lord, and feeling the vibration and energy of the words.

The words are few and simple, yet they are so powerful and healing.  Here are the words and why not give it a try for yourself.

       Hear our pray’r, O Lord; hear our pray’r, O Lord; Incline          Thine ear to us and grant us Thy Peace.

IMG_20180122_084824_095In my book, Yes Speak To Our Hearts, Holy Spirit – Through Our Daily Practice of Listening, Recognizing, and Using Your Unlimited Gifts and Power, in the Introduction of the book I expressed that prayers and songs that are generated by love are so bountiful, so blissful, and so beautiful.  Such prayers and songs touch you on a soul level.  They are our direct link to the Universal God that dwells in each of us. So why not consciously connect and reconnect to that unlimited power in the morning, noon, and night?

In Psalms 55:17 it reads, I will pray morning, noon, and night, pleading aloud with God; and he will hear and answer.  (The Living Bible)

Another song that touches me and others on a soul level is called Prayer by Eddy Arnold.  The lyrics are:

Prayer is a song we all can sing a light that the blind can see.  Prayer is a gift the poor can bring however poor they’d be.   Prayer is a star that lights the way for those who are in despair.   And when your heart kneels down to pray God will hear your prayer.

A prayer can be offered at any time and for many reasons, and especially during these times when so many are feeling the pain/ negative energy from the many uncertainties, from feeling the gloom of hopelessness, loss, anxiety, and the absence of peace.

The power of prayers and songs along with all gifts from the Creator touches and heals us on all levels: the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

No matter what kind of prayer you are in need of right now you could simply begin by praying – Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. (Psalm 51:10)

Whenever you are in need of a prayer, song, meditation, clearing and cleaning your spiritual/chakra energy centers, I am here to be of service.

Until the next time inhale and exhale.

Soulfully Speaking,

Hadiah

Lessons Taught and Lessons Learned

It’s a New Year Everyone!

I greet 2018 with the mindset of; well, to be more exact, 2018 greeted me with a hard push into the mindset of knowing what’s too much for you and knowing what’s too little for you.

Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, founder of the Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, California said,  “Pain pushes you until vision pulls you.”

I have taught many lessons and learned many lessons as I served in various capacities such as a Daughter, Sister, Niece, Aunt, Cousin, Friend, Girlfriend, Wife, Mother/Nina, Daughter-In-Law, Mother-In-Law, Sister-In-Law, Grandmother/MiMi, Student, Teacher, a Lightworker, and a Child of the Universe.

However, one of the biggest and challenging lessons that the Universe is pulling me toward in 2018 is to revisit the lessons on knowing what’s too much for you and knowing what’s too little and to be able to recognize then accept what’s just right for you.

My mantra for my meditation practice this year is the Serenity Prayer:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

What vision is the Universe pulling you to visit or revisit this New Year of 2018?  How are you going to keep up with your God given vision?

As the song goes, I’ll pray for you and you pray for me and watch how God changes things.  Let’s feel the Universal20140824_124518 pull whether it’s a hard push, or a gentle nudge, so we may grow more in the flow of our passion and purpose that the Universe is pulling us into.

Soulfully Speaking,

Hadiah
