Some of us don't think God is still around because we haven't visited God in such a long time. God still lives where God has always lived: in your heart. God is still doing what God has always done: loving you. God is still who God has always been: the source and supply of all that you need and desire.
When you undertake any endeavor harboring a conscious or unconscious belief that you are not worthy of doing it, you will find that you are unable to move forward.
You have the power to reshape and redefine any experience, no matter how devastating it seems. Look at your experience, and ask "How can I use this for my own growth?"

There is no way goodness, abundance and success can come to you if your affairs are not in order. Abundance is a direct reflection of your preparation to live abundantly.
Change doesn't have to be hard, and healing doesn't have to hurt. Surely by now you know that every thing happens for a reason! There is something better awaiting you on the other side of this.
Focus ＋ Courage ＋ Willingness to Work = Miracles
We are bound to become that which we study, so let us study peace and love and truth.
Running interference for your grown children can interfere with their ability to figure things out on their own. Offer your grown children the opportunity to meet life on their own terms. It is a parent's duty to know when to let go and step back.
There is something great and powerful within you that is waiting to be expressed. Step into your greatness and never look back.
We are living in a new age, a new time, when things must be different. You cannot continue to do what has always been done. Something or someone must change. It might as well be you! You have the visions. You have the opportunity. The only thing you need is the strength and courage to recognize that you have been chosen for the awesome task of implementing change.
Be patient with yourself. Be gentle with yourself. Know that all things are working in your favor. If you take one step toward the light of Spirit, Spirit will take five steps on your behalf.
When confronted with a difficulty, we must immediately shift our attention from the problem to the solution. We can think, speak and bring the best possible outcome into existence by focusing on where we are going, not on where we think we are.
Please join me in lifting up my Beloved Sister Toni Morrison and all of her friends and family into the light of love while we mourn her passing. May she forever be remembered with our great Ancestors and may we always honor her life and her work. #restinpower #tonimorrison
Lift your thoughts. Lift your expectations. Lift yourself. Train yourself to mentally look for the good things you want and the good will respond.
I acknowledge that as a human being, with weaknesses and foibles, it is much easier to see 'out there' than it is to acknowledge that I am the only one who gets to say what goes on in my life. I am creating my experiences moment by moment, thought by thought, word by word, action by action.
Everybody needs a little time and space where they can go to be alone. If you want your relationship to grow and flourish, give your loved one the time, space and opportunity to go and make contact with their own minds.
You are, in essence, spirit, housed in a physical envelope, brought to life by the breath of God to fulfill a divine mission.
All difficult, challenging, painful experiences and relationships provide us with an opportunity to heal some part of our consciousness.
Self - your true, authentic self - is the gentle, knowing, powerful essence of the Creator. Self is without judgment, without societal prejudice, without expectation. When we know who we are, accept why we are, and understand what we are living to learn, self becomes a constant source of encouragement.
Loving is not something we do to or for other people. It is a blessing, a gift we give to ourselves.
We have been miseducated about gift-giving. We believe gifts must always bear a price tag or be given for a particular reason. The real joy in giving comes when we give what we have spontaneously, with no reason other than for the joy of giving.
We all know everything we need to know. The knowledge we need to face most of life's experiences is imprinted on our genes. Our challenge is to develop the wisdom required to put what we know to good use.
Whatever the situation in which we find ourselves, we can find the answer through peace, a peace-filled mind and a peaceful heart.
People talk about you. It gets back to you. You strike out at them; find things wrong with them; tell bad things about them. But do you really look at yourself? If you are so great, so wonderful, so marvelous, why is this information coming to you? DETATCH and LISTEN! There may be something in it you can use.
Right where you are is where you need to be. Don't fight it! Don't run away from it! Stand firm! Take a deep breath. And another. And another. Now, ask yourself: Why is this in my world? What do I need to see?
Awakenings with Iyanla Vanzant: Free download at http://bit.ly/awakeningsapp . A vision is a picture of your authentic desires projected into the future. When your vision is clear, it specifies who you desire to be, what you desire to do, how you desire to feel, and what you are ready to experience. If you can see it, you will be it! That is the value of a vision. . Let’s vision together with Awakenings: Daily Spiritual Coaching App.
An unexpressed feeling is like a rubber band being stretched to its limit. The longer you hold on to the feeling, the more the tension grows. Eventually something has to give, or the rubber band is going to snap. When that happens, someone is going to get hurt. What you feel is important and expressing it is an important step toward healing yourself and someone else.
Your spirit is the only true navigational force in your life. Your personality is the passenger, not the driver! Most people believe it is the personality that matters. As a result, there are things they believe they cannot do because such things don't fit their personality. Poor creatures! As long as they insist on listening to the passenger, they will probably end up getting lost.
Rather than beating yourself up for what you are not doing, appreciate and celebrate the things you are doing. When you shift your focus away from what you do not want, you can create a vision for what you do. Don't fight with yourself - focus on what you do, can do, choose to do, are ready to do.
Conscious breathing nurtures and nourishes the mind, body and spirit. Breath is how we remain conscious of and connected to God.

The attitude with which we greet the day says a great deal about what the day will be like. When we start the day with a spirit of joy, openness, peace and love, we put the universe on alert, we want more of the same.
A compassionate person is not one who does for others what they must do for themselves in order to grow. Compassionate people support, because they know that to support you means they will also help you heal and grow.

Affirm - I now willingly release all negative beliefs about myself, my life and all other people. I now forgive myself for thinking I ever did anything wrong. I am now filled with the love and the Power that I am. For this I am so grateful! And So It Is!
God is within every living thing, which means there is a divine and eternal truth beneath everything you see.
It is very easy to get so wrapped up in doing what you feel needs to be done that you forget to be grateful for the ability to do. To walk. To breathe. To think. These are gifts. To see. To hear. To feel. These are invaluable gifts.
You cannot have love if your heart is closed.
Whatever situation you find your behind in today, your mind put it there. Your thoughts direct the flow of activity into and out of your life. At all times, in all situations, if you don't like where you find your bottom, change what's going on at the top.
Have you ever heard the sun come out in the morning? Did you hear the moon come out last night? We have been taught that power is loud, forceful, aggressive, and somewhat intimidating. It is not. In silence the Creator works.
We live in a society that takes us from one thing to the next without a clear assessment of the lessons, pitfalls and challenges. When we take a moment to acknowledge our achievements, big and small, then we can look back at them and know what is possible.
I am traveling across the country sharing my interactive learning experiences in faith and I am getting closer to my other home—Maryland! I’m looking forward to a theater full of my Beloveds on 6/26 in North Bethesda. . Seats are still available at IyanlaVanzantLive.com. Are you coming to see me? I’m coming to see you:)
Most people will do everything in their power to avoid admitting 'I don't know.' You may have believed that it was your duty and responsibility to know everything. Be open and willing to admit what you don't know. Open yourself to receive new information from expected and unexpected sources.
