Don't tell me where your priorities are.

Show me where you spend your money and I'll tell you what they are.

Iyanla Vanzant Daily Stimu-Mail – SUPPORTING THE EVIDENCE FOR ME


Iyanla Vanzant is the founder and executive director of Inner Visions International and the Inner Visions Institute for Spiritual Development. She is the author of 13 titles—including five New York Times bestsellers—and the Inner Visions CD Series. Peace from Broken Pieces: How to Get Through What You’re Going Through has been published by SmileyBooks and available here. Iyanla is a Spiritual Technician. She is a Master Teacher. She is a woman of passion, clear vision and purpose, with a wicked sense of humor. Ordinary? Maybe. We think Dr. Maya Angelou's description is much more appropriate. Iyanla is, by many accounts, a Phenomenal Woman!


I will realize my own worth when I accept
 .  .  . what I do says a lot about who
I believe I am.
 

You have probably heard this statement before.  This time, really hear it.  Take it into every fiber of your being with the desire to really understand what it means. "Your life is a testimony of who you are." Your response to every experience in your life is a witness to your character.  Do you react defensively? In anger?  Or, do you respond lovingly? How you treat yourself and others will convict you or exonerate you. Do you care about yourself?  Do you provide good, loving care for yourself? How you present yourself to the world is the judge of your character.  Are you a hangman? An executioner? Or, are you a caring, compassionate comforter? What you do and how you do it is your jury. Are you biased or balanced?  Are you open or judgmental? The conditions and circumstances in which you live are your courtroom. Are you free? Or, are you mentally, emotionally or spiritually imprisoned?
    
As you review and examine the testimony your life is making to the world, you gather the evidence of who you really believe you are. You are the only one who can testify for you or against you! The evidence you present either builds a case for your worthiness or, against it.  What you believe about your own worthiness determines how the evidence is presented. The amount of freedom you experience, as well as the length and degree of your mental, emotional or spiritual imprisonment is determined by the evidence you present. Perhaps it is time to overturn some of your decisions.

Until today, you may not have been aware of how the conditions in your life and how you live your life demonstrate what you believe about yourself. Just for today, review the evidence and bring in a verdict. Are you worthy?  Are you not worthy?

Today, I am devoted to supporting the evidence for me and changing the evidence against me that is me!

From Until Today!
