I Bow To My Higher Self

God Loves Me

I can actually feel the changes in my spirit and mind......

Once, I was together with my husband and 3 other couples having dinner in a restaurant. We were each expounding on some philosophy or news event. When it found me, I asked everyone to go around the table and say what they would be doing if money were no object. It started on my right and each person told what they would do. There were journalists, teachers, philanthropists, writers, professional golfers, healers and philosophers. When it came to me I started laughing because I am not one to hold back, and I said, "I would be president of the world; I just want to tell everyone what to do, but I don't care whether they do it or not." The man sitting to my right said, "Oh, don't stop there, be 'Empress of the Universe'." Well, I can't tell you how much this appealed to me, so that is what I'm srtiving my utmost to be-- Notice the moniker: CreatePerfection. Now, you have been given fair warning. I have lofty goals. I will push on, as purposefully as I can, until we all love each other. I have mentioned before that I am a very spiritual person. What this means to me is that I talk with God, and listen for God's message every single chance I get.

I recently came across a book called, "Lessons In Truth." It was the textbook for a 10 week course I took many, many years ago. A passage I read in it a few nights ago talked about the benefits of saying the words, "God loves me", as many times each day as you think of it, while making the effort to really feel the truth of it. The author, H. Emilie Cady goes on to say that after doing this for a few days the results will be a new exhilaration of mind and a great desire and power to please God. Then after a few more days you would have better blood circulation, a pleasant sense of warmth in the body and better digestion. "Later", she says, "As Truth flows out through your being into your surroundings, everybody will begin to manifest a new love for you without your knowing why; and finally, circumstances will begin to change and fall into harmony with your desires, instead of being adverse to them." I have often heard it said that when you are ready the message you need will appear. When I took this course so very many years ago, I didn't even notice this passage. But, right now, the message could not have come at a better time. The first night I tried it I was so wired and agitated the whole night that I could not sleep at all. I laid awake all night saying this phrase. The next day I felt like I had been hit by a train. Right now, I feel closer to God than I ever have before. It was worth going through the dark night of the soul to get there.

I live just outside Boulder, and I go into town when I need to run errands. The main street through Boulder is Broadway. North Boulder has only recently been developed so it is not as congested as the downtown area. At the very north end of Broadway there is a traffic light where it intersects another road. There is an elderly, homeless man who sits there day after day with a sign asking for money. I usually give him a dollar when I go by, but he has never said anything to me except, "God bless you." Yesterday, I was pulling up to the light as it turned green, with my arm extented and a one dollar bill in my hand for him. He walked over to get it and said, "Hello, sister, I love the hell out of you; you always take care of me." Pulling away through the green light I yelled back, "I love you, too."

As I get older I care much more about people and our planet than I ever had time to when I was younger, but I believe we are going to go through some extremely dynamic changes on Earth, and I want to be as awake as I possibly can be. I meditate at least once each day and start by asking God, "What do you want me to do?" The thing I look for after that is the inspiration to write these articles. Some days I can feel the turmoil in the world, so intensely, that I can only write about the injustices I see. So much is happening in the U.S. and around the world. Many of these events seem unbelievable, to me, and the only way I can get any perspective on them is to look at them as the catalysts for the needed changes on earth and within ourselves.

We in America are so fortunate and live in a wonderful country filled with great beauty. But, it's not just America that is beautiful, there is so much beauty in the world around us. It is also in the uniqueness of people, their customs, their languages and their art. I know that to live on this extraordinary planet we have to take care of her. I think that the catastrophes going on right now are meant as a message to us all to get our act together and find a way to love each other. That is certainly my greatest hope. So, may God bless you with the highest possible consciousness every single day and may I invite you to say, every chance you get, "God loves me."

Thank you so much for this wonderful message, Perfection. Sometimes I feel like we're drowning in indifference and the need to be mean-spirited. I hope everyone reads your hub and takes away as much inspiration as I did.

Dear CreatePerfection,

Just want to say that your picture clearly suggests you would be a very beautiful Empress of the World!

Many years ago, when my children were young, they would sometimes walk across the street with their friends to play on the swings and the slides. My son was 8; my daughter was 6. We lived in a small town and times were different then. You could let your kids go out to play. I went outside and saw them running towards me, both crying hysterically. I managed to get from them that two older kids (both 13) had cornered them and had threatened to kill them. They had a knife and tried to sexually molest my young daughter. They told her they would kill her brother if she did not comply. My kids managed to get away before that happened. I called the police, they came and said that they would probably not be able to find these two boys. So, I found them myself. They were taken to juvenile hall. But that is not the point. When I finally asked them how they got away, they told me that a man saved them. The man was a homeless veteran (one of our town's first homeless people) that lived on the streets of our small town. Everyone was afraid of him, just because he lived on the streets. He probably saved the lives of my babies that day. He did not live in a big, beautiful home. He had no possessions, but he had integrity, honor and courage. He was a hero and ever since then, I, too, stop and do what little I can.

I do believe in God, although I do not attend church. I have to believe; I have seen too much to doubt. I know God loves me. Once we, who believe in God, accept that, we are open to loving ourselves and that opens the door to helping each other.

I think if we would all just stop and try to help even those we don't know, in little ways, minus judgment, our world might be a better place. It might even be contagious! As individuals, we cannot solve all of the world's problems, but we can, little by little, contribute and offer to help each other...That might go to change the world in a big way!

Thank you for a beautiful, reflective piece of writing!

Dear Jillian, you honor me so much with your words. If I do aspire to be Empress of the Universe it is for only one reason and that is to find the best way to serve humanity's awakening so that we find unity with each other. I love what you have said in your comment. We, in America, have for so long judged each other by our belongings and I would have us see what is in each others heart instead. Thank you.

Awesome,awesome!

When I was a young girl,whenever I was afraid or scared I would sing to myself "Yes,Jesus Loves Me",it calmed me and got me though hard times.

I'm older now but I carry that in my spirit and use it on a daily basis or other songs of praise that lift my faith and my spirit.

Thanks for sharing!

Hello Lela, as I told you, I'll get here and I am here...reading and absorbing every words from this hub.

You reminded me of a once stressful flight experience where at the end of our flight, a young woman (maybe in her early 20's) said to me, "Thank you, you've been very pleasant in handling the most demanding job. God bless you." -- now, that to me is really something. I seldom hear those words from the younger generations particularly, "God bless you". I didn't even realize she was watching me. At home, I excitedly shared my story with my daughter and my encounter with this young woman, in which my daughter replied; "There you go mom. God Loves you."

This is a truly delightful and reflective hub Lela. I love it and will book mark it for my reading pleasure and inspiration.

Thank you.

Love from the sky~

Dearest Bobby, I feel that God, or our source, or consciousness itself is talking to me. I'm a pretty good listener and that's just what I get, that consciousness is telling me things I feel like I need to share. No matter what the question is, the answer is LOVE. I know when it comes down to me really getting a concept, I have to hear it exactly the way it touches me, so this article is just another way of saying "Love One Another."

Thanks again, Bobby, for being in my life. It is always good to have a true friend. Blessings, Lela
