Wake Up Calls


I relinquish all blame and stop doing what doesn’t work.

I reach out with love and love returns to me.

I wake up each day refreshed and ready to learn.

Everyday in every way I am more alive, alert and enthusiastic.

Wake Up Calls!

Every upset, accident, illness is a wakeup call.

Every firing, bankruptcy, family problem is a wake up call.

When you are comfortable, you may go to sleep and neglect your life.

When you are surprised or shocked, you will tend to wake up and attend to your life.

Are you awake yet?

What does it take to pay attention?

What helps you to stay conscious?

How do you listen and honor your inner knowing?

It is true most folks have learned to prefer familiarity and sameness.

Most people want control over their lives, so they can make it easy.

We may want to be busy, but fail to notice what we can hear in quiet.

Many want to avoid listening to what they need to learn and know. 

When we know better, we do better.

When we are sleeping in class, we cannot learn.

When we read comic books, we don’t read inspiring works.

When we are sleeping on the job, we cannot get our real work done.

What does it take for you to listen to yourself?

Where do you go for answers when you do not know?

How loud do you need to hear the alarm before waking up?

What will it take to be responsible for your life and respond with love?

It is our judgment and fear that keep us stuck in someone else’s nightmare.

It is our attachment to the easy way that holds us captive in cycles of madness.

It is our addiction to numbing the emotional, mental, physical pain that keeps us from changing.

We are awake when we choose to respond with conscience, confidence and freedom of choice.

When we run from our responsibility (ability to respond with healing), we are sleeping.

When we open our mind and our heart, we can see and feel what is needed.

When we lift our minds to what can be rather than linger in the past, we choose what we prefer.

When we are walking into the light rather than hiding in the dark, we see what we can be.

Everyday there are opportunities to wake up and enjoy the school of life.

When we are judging the lessons and refusing to listen, we may not pass the tests of time.

When we fall asleep at our desk or use drugs to not get the learning, we fail to graduate.

School is a gift and learning is our “job”. 

Let’s get a good night’s sleep and wake up to face the day with enthusiasm and curiosity.

With an awakened heart and open mind, we can always see what is before us and which way to go.

With willingness to listen and learn, we can achieve everything we want to be happy and free.

Let us wake up to what is good and whole and beautiful for Goodness Sake.

I am always loving you and reminding you to Love your Self.
