To CONQUER ONESELF is a Greater Task than conquering others

Monday, February 24, 2014






In order to CHANGE we must CONQUER OURSELVES. We must develop a strong inner strength that drives us forward day-after-day towards our goals.








Too often the emoticon sabotages my best made plans. The mind fights a battle hidden from the eyes of others. It's like a tug-a-war, some days you win and some days you loose. Sometimes prayers emoticon or meditation can be a source of strength. When temptations arise a MIND JAR can help.







Watch the glitter sink to the bottom as a meditation tool. The temperature of the water determines length of time this takes. If you use liquid soap or corn syrup with a thicker viscosity, it takes longer to settle. (HINT) It gives you more time to re-think your temptations. A Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use whenever you feels stressed, overwhelmed or upset, or TEMPTED by cravings. Imagine the glitter as your thoughts. When you shake the jar, imagine your head full of whirling thoughts, then watch them slowly settle while you calm down. Hopefully as the glitter settles, the cravings or temptations leave. Glitter jars are beautiful to watch. emoticon








My Dear Body, I promise to do GOOD TODAY. I promise to make progress on my journey towards health.








I will DO GOOD. I will SPARKLE with determination like my GLITTER JAR.







I won't settle for any foods that don't support my goals.








Let's do it. SEIZE THE DAY. emoticon







Let me know how you beat temptations. How do you LIKE my Sparkle Jar idea? Let me know.

    Love this! The Sparkle Jar kind of reminds me of a lava lamp. Just sitting and watch it makes one think and relax. Keep Sparkling and Sparking.

    Love this blog and the sparkle jar! I want to make one too! The best things that work for me with temptations are:

a cherry Lifesaver
hot tea
get busy doing something

Not sure those are the best deterrents!

    Time,

I never heard of a glitter jar, and it's something I would like to make, as I love watching snow globes, but they're too expensive to purchase, so the glitter jar is just the ticket! Thanks for including that in this WONDERFUL BLOG, which reminded me that I choose to treat God's temple, with respect!

Be blessed,

    Your idea is sparkling. I've been working on treating a muscle in my body with kindness and gratitude. It is my weakest muscle, and it will hurt me sometimes even when I am trying to put my hands above my head even though it is in my leg. Now I am working on thanking it for all it has done that day and asking it to relax. It is helping me.
