How Hope Energizes Us

Hope is such a universal human experience, that we actually have the beautiful, and metaphorically appropriate saying that hope is “like a ray of sunshine.”  Spiritually speaking, this is actually true.

Hope is an aspect of one of the Seven Rays of Source energy that feed into the universe to create life as we know it in this physical plane.  The Seven Rays bring sacred qualities into the universe with them, for creating Divine possibilities in this universe.  The Seven Rays also help heal and sustain life.  As a ray of energy from the Divine, hope actually is as uplifting and life-giving as a ray of sunshine!

We can access hope at any time, if we choose to do so.  Accessing hope begins with changing our thoughts.  Hope is usually only limited by thoughts or self-limiting beliefs, and we can definitely change our thoughts and beliefs.  Sometimes, we need to empower ourselves to believe our own beliefs rather than someone else’s, and to think our own thoughts rather than following someone else’s line of thinking.

One of the most powerful ways of accessing and experiencing hope for ourselves is by giving hope, or bringing hope to others.  Then hope is shared and the positive energy is multiplied.

We often need hope ourselves for own lives.  We are free to hope.  To bring hope into situations where we feel none, we need to examine our own thinking and our own beliefs, and learn to recognize what thoughts or beliefs inside our own head are actually limiting possibilities for us, and therefore limiting hope.

We can, of course, ask for help from higher beings (angels, spirit guides, archangels, and Ascended Master guides).  Yet our own choice to have hope reflects the possibility of faith in the Divine as expressed in the Universe, and this faith is important.  Faith begins with choosing our own thoughts and beliefs in a way that honors the hopeful possibilities for Divine manifestation. Hope and faith also honor the hopeful possibilities of the Divine flow of energy which shapes our experience of life in this universe.

Affirmations that can help us include:  I AM filled with rays of hope.  Hope is lighting up my being like rays of sunshine.  I AM the hope I seek.  Every cell of my body is infused with hope.  Hope is the Divine ray of pure possibility creating my life in this moment.  I am Being Itself from which all else flows.  Hope is the ray of Infinite possibilities shining in my world. Hope is the ray of Divine Light shining to me and through me for all the world.

May you find and share the blessing of hope which permeates the Universe!

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
