Mind Health Is Critical

Learning how to let the Law of Attraction, which is always operating, work for me rather than against me.

I have had a bit of a set back with this blog, and I do apologize. I had a new concept brought forth to me. Actually, it is an old concept brought back to mind. I have been spending a bit of time wrapping my mind around it, to be honest. During this process, I let my blog “ride” for a week or so. Yet, now, I realize I could also blog about it, for others who struggle with their mind health. Gotta keep the mind sharp as we age, you know. And this teacher I discovered {or re-discovered} has a sharp mind!

Now don’t get me wrong, I am not talking about “brain health” here. Moreso I speak on changing our mind. Changing how we think about ourselves, and our world around us.

And so I began a journey this past month, and am experiencing growing pains, of a sort. Yet, its a good thing, I think. Change is good. I am learning about the Law of Attraction, for one thing. Learning how to let the Law of Attraction, which is always operating, work for me rather than against me.

So the videos I have been watching are on YouTube, and so far I have been utilizing the free material from Bob Proctor. His You Tube channel resonates with me due to his evidently putting the Higher Power as YeHoVaH God, which is what I like. And the language for these older ears is nice to listen to. His voice is soothing to me, as I meditate on His Word, while listening to Bob. And he is definitely NOT a baby boomer. Yet, he has aged gracefully, and experiences Life in the Grey Zone with affluence and style.

I encourage you to view some of his teachings on the mind. It could totally revolutionize yours!

Here’s a sample of what I have been devouring of late!

Hanukkah Over Christmas

Most Bible commentators agree Yeshua was not born at christmas. He was most probably divinely conceived during this time of year.

I must admit to observing christmas for many years. Many, many years. As a child, a young mother, and a young-ish Granny, I observed this season with gusto.

What changed for me? My studying of Scriptures, actually. And so I put a couple of article links here. Based on my current research, I will continue to celebrate Yeshua, the Light of the World, coming into this world at this, the darkest time of year. Just not celebrating christmas anymore.

The first link is from over a year ago, I admit. What struck me is “…Bible commentators agree that [Yeshua] was not born at …christmas time when the world remembers His birth. He would most probably have been born around the month of September during the Feast of Tabernacles. However, this time of the year is most probably that time He was divinely conceived by the power of the of Holy Ghost…”

And the other link I have found interesting is from an Israeli perspective. “…the message of Hanukkah, Festival of Lights, is … The Divine Light overcomes even the darkest of darkness – and this is what we celebrate on both Hanukkah,  on the 25th of Kislev, and Christmas, on the 25th of December!…”

And this bonus article on Hanukkah itself, details more of the history, especially of the miracle of 8 days of oil.

“…from the description in the First Maccabees, it is clear that the original celebration was about the military victory and the rededication of the Temple.  Even if the miracle of the oil did occur, First (and also Second) Maccabees doesn’t mention it at all. However, the focus of celebration has been switched over the centuries: instead of celebrating the military success of the Maccabees, the Festival of Hanukkah has become a celebration of the Divine Miracle and of the Divine Light. This is Hanukkah as we know it today—the Festival of Lights..”

Who Made God?

So I was having a good conversation with my middle child today. We had decided to have a “crafty” day, and as she was working on a gift, I was working on my baking. And we began to talk.

She had been talking to one of her friends, who had a question that my daughter felt inadequate to answer.  She tried to deflect the friend to me to ask, friend would have none of it. 

Question to me from darling daughter, “Who really made God?” 

I was all set to answer my daughter, of course.  “No one. He just, was.” Exodus 3:14. Quoting Scripture is a Mother’s prerogative, right? 

Digging deeper into her beliefs and questions, we had a really nice conversation, my middle child and I. Part of it was, “why does God allow bad things to happen to good people, or to kids?” Well, dear, the world as we know it [as we have heard often in the news] is degenerating, so to speak. And, according to the Scripture I read, it will get much, much worse before it gets better.

Difficult to explain these types of questions, to anyone. Yet, so happy to hear that our daughter [dubbed “the missionary one” by me] is, in her friendships, going out to the world and making a difference.

So, what do I believe. Who made God? 

Well, as I said, no one made the Creator. He Himself told us “I AM that I AM”. I AM eternal. Self existing. 

Short answer…no one made Him.
