A good seaman weathers the storms he can not avoid, and avoids the storms he can not weather. Perhaps the key is to identify the difference.
I recently attended a funeral of a man who literally drank himself to death. He was an alcoholic in the depths of his addiction. It truly is a disease. It was a man I did not know well, but was there to support a friend who was involved with him. Some of his siblings spoke about him which revealed a man in his younger years was an extremely gifted and talented sailor, surfer, athlete and dancer. He went to Julliard for ballet! So what happened? When does a life start to take a turn and head into stormy waters? How can you navigate out of it? Why didn’t he get help? What was it that he was avoiding? So many questions, but no answers.
It was as if his life was battling a constant storm that he couldn’t get out of.
You might be going through some storms of your own or have gone through some turbulent times. We all go through tough times in life. With support and guidance you can get through them and even avoid some of them. You always need a good skipper on hand to help you see things you can’t as you are steering your way through life! So, if your going through a storm in your life, ask for help, pray, meditate on it and know anything is possible to get through with faith and courage.

One negative thought can send your mind on a downward spiral which will create all kinds of consequences to happen. They might be little at first but if you allow those negative thoughts to continue they build into something much larger and harder to get rid of. They like to latch on like a virus and attach and attack your thoughts so that it takes a tremendous amount of strength to combat those beasts.
Any time a negative thought creeps into my mind, I say cancel/clear and replace it with a positive thought. If it is a fearful thought that is gripping your emotions, allow it surface and invite it in to your mind. Ask yourself what is it about this fear that is keeping you locked into a negative vibration.
There are so many people that are dealing with some real life crisis. Illnesses, financial woes, loss of loved ones or anything that can bring negativity to the surface, can disrupt your peace of mind.
There are times that we are challenged to stay positive. Through pray, meditation and constructive thinking, we can overcome any obstacle. We may feel sad, hurt and pain at times, however we will prevail if we remember that this to shall pass.
There is a spiritual answer if we seek the highest good. Stay connected to the good!
