Start your day with a smile, begin a conversation with a smile; it takes the briefest of moments to express yourself with the highest and purest of your intentions just by a simple and beautiful gesture that amplifies your light and love. When you are offering comfort, guidance, tenderness and love it is important dear ones that your facial expression reflects the true nature of your heart. A person does not have to be next to you to feel your smile and feel your warmth. By the words you choose and the tone they express, who is reading will feel and know your gentleness and loving spirit.
It is not easy maintaining a positive manner at all times. You are not expected by any of the Divine to be perfect. We have HOPE that you will choose to respond and react with love and compassion through every action. We have FAITH that you will see any error quickly and learn from any irrational response that occurred from any verbal or written communication. It is important to be aware dear ones of your frame of mind also to be aware when frustration is seeping in. It requires great discipline to refrain from lashing out and causing more harm by allowing harmful words to spill out. Arguments will happen, simply excuse yourself and wish them the best and offer them blessings of love. I understand it can be difficult to walk away, the more you continue in antagonizing argument the more of your own inner-power is given and lost even though temporarily.
You cannot force your opinions or beliefs on others who follow a different course than you. Respect must be given, and appreciation for what each other thinks and feels will help bring forth a more peaceful collaboration of great minds and hearts working together. After all you are all working together dear ones. You are working together already; you are working to unite the people of earth with great love and compassion for all gender, all culture and background. You are working together to bring about knowledge and information that will not include ego based opinions and encouraging acceptance and understanding of yourself and everyone else. Where you are right now, maybe you are meditating, praying, or studying something new that will bring out increased spiritual awareness and growth is helping the people of the world move forward in a more positive light.
The point here dear ones is being able to discover yourself countering emotionally instead of dealing with the challenge or problem reasonably and maturely. It will take time to change your ways of reacting heatedly to taking on a calmer approach. The transition will happen, as you learn to slow down and reflect what it is that upsets you so much; reach for the root cause and learn what you can do to fix this and change this behaviour or way into a more positive attribute. What challenges you have dear ones! Exasperation comes into your mind many times in a day. You choose already with your children which arguments are worth being firm about and which ones you are flexible with. The same approach can be taken with anyone at any age, using a gentler and compassionate approach with every interaction you are included in.
When you are able to achieve peaceful solutions for the small disruptions just by being more amiable and compassionate, you are preparing yourself for taking on the bigger and more complicated challenges that come along. The fear and shock that is commonly experienced will be lessened because your inner-self has remembered similar occurrences on a smaller scale and you will begin to set in motion the same procedure that brought out peace and calming the mind. Your first step is to smile. You already have the know-how to move through your challenges with less panic, you only have apply what you know at every stage as the challenge being faced progresses. Believe in yourself dear ones and know how much you are loved and appreciated. Be persistent with continuously learning and increasing your knowledge and applying that wisdom when you speak, work, and play; in any action that you take, be it with love, compassion and smile first. Don’t remind yourself of mistakes, they are not mistakes dear ones, only lessons. Remember to forgive yourself, love yourself and be kind to yourself. Before you exercise these to your immediate family and friends you are close to, you must fully apply them to yourself first.
I have enjoyed our time spent today even though it was shorter than what I have transmitted lately. All your efforts to reach peace and calm are valuable and I appreciate each of you and love you dearly. Dear ones, I wish for each of you your efforts to gain the perfect level of purity and balance in all parts of yourself and of journey you are on. Find a working balance with your reasoning and emotional self that will work the most optimal for you. My blessings are always with you. Namaste,
I AM Serapis Bey through Julie Miller
Of course, from your perception, you are always right. Right or not right is not the question. The question is not your virtue. The question is: Where do you go from here?
Everyone thinks he or she is right. Both parties are right. And where does being right get you? Being right results in law suits. Being right dissolves marriages. There is more to life than being right.
Life is truly not a question of right or wrong. You are asking the wrong question! Whether you are right or wrong, if you have fallen from a ladder, you have fallen from a ladder. Right or wrong, if you have broken your leg, your leg is broken.
Life is more than about right and wrong. Get off that subject. Get onto the subject of responsibility. That is quite a different issue. Responsibility isn't something that is assigned. You have to assign yourself responsibility.
If your life isn't presently what you want, what are you going to do to make it different?
No longer can you shove the responsibility of your life off to someone else.
It is time now to stop counting the wrongs.
If your grass needs mowing, mow it.
It has been said that pride goeth before a fall. If you have been falling a lot, relationships falling apart, look to yourself and not the other. Never mind the past of right and wrong. What are you going to do now? If you want to change the equation, what are you going to do to change it?
When you do not like the balance of things, what are you going to do to change the balance?
This is your life We are talking about. What are you going to make it?
Taking responsibility is getting out of the past, the long ago past and the past of a moment ago. When you live in the past, you reinstitute the past. I think you want to get out of the past. Let it go by the wayside.
Steady your life in the present time. This is the time of your life. Whatever has been done can be undone, not by examination, but by throwing it over your shoulder and starting anew.
In order to rebuild a better world, start building.
If there has to be change, then make the changes.
You are the mover of the Universe. Start moving. Start climbing. Do not fall behind. Go ahead. Meet the horizon.
You are not meant to be an onlooker in life. Life is not a sport on TV that you watch. Life is something you enter into. Life is the clay of existence, and you take the clay in your hands and you mold it.
Perhaps you have been tossing the clay up and letting it fall where it may. Shape the clay the way you want it to be. Create a work of art. Have fun with the clay and make it beautiful.
It has been said that I made you out of clay. I designed you. My design was not hit or miss. I did not leave you up to chance.
I created you by seeing possibilities. And that is how you create. First envision the possibilities. Choose and shape the clay of life into the possibilities that you choose. You will create every day. Life is more than a one-time job. You do not finish. You have not finished. There is no fait-acompli. There is life ongoing.
You are riding the train of life, and there is much scenery you see. Become One with Me, and become One with the scenery of life. You are alive, and you are making history.

SOS - Success Over Stress
Stress, a common issue in today’s life, is caused by two things - external events that enter our lives and our internal reaction to those events.
Since the sources of stress are internal (from within) and external (outside powers like physical or emotional events), we must change the way we react as well as to control the outside forces that start the stress cycle. If we cannot deal with these two options, we may need a 3rd strategy - seeking the help of others.
We have outlined three SOS plans that describe various coping skills that you can apply in your life.
SOS Strategy #1
Start on (the) situation
Most people link stress with major life changes, such as divorce or layoff, job demands, frustration, conflicts, worries and hassles that touch them every day.
One way to manage these types of stress is to meet them head-on and to find ways to change the cause.
Here are examples of useful skills that work on outside stress. Think of ways you can use each of them.
Set limits. Rate your tasks from highest to lowest. Drop some or make other activities easier if possible. Try to plan what is important, say no to unfair demands and pick your battles wisely.
Take charge. Accept responsibility for your actions by ‘clearing the air’, by getting more facts, looking at options, learning to make your own decisions and being confident.
Lesson change by staying put and sticking to a schedule. Sometimes it is helpful just to go with the flow for awhile.
SOS Strategy #2
Start on self
Stress never happens without our help. How we deal with stress, in the end, controls the level of stress we suffer. More often than not, we have more control over ourselves and how we react than we do over the situation that causes the stress.
The following tips are useful for SOS Strategy #2
Take care of yourself by getting plenty of rest and taking it easy. Try deep breathing, relaxing; creating a daily routine; finding quiet time; and watching your health.
Getting away from it all. Try something new, like getting away. Find a new spot to think, work, play, live. Build outside interests and give yourself well-deserved breaks. Exercise regularly.
Strengthen your fight. Find cures to stress. Learn to put up with doubt. Identify the things you want and like and let others know and take care of those desires. Change your behaviour and get rid of negative thoughts.
Get your thoughts in order. Expect change. Develop your skills and abilities. Resolve any differences. Make your values clear. Focus on what really counts.
SOS Strategy #3
Search out support
Even if you have already tried to change, tried to take care of yourself and go it alone, there’s still more you can do. Our lives are full of support (friends, experts, rituals, connections) that can help during times of stress. But we need to seek out help and make use of what they have to offer. Here’s a list of things that may help deal with stress.
Make the most of your surroundings. Reach out and use anything around you that can help. Let your ‘space’ protect and comfort you. Search out beauty. Enjoy nature.
What sort of things around you have you ignored? How can your surroundings help with your stress?
Share your burden. Lean on someone you can trust. Ask for help. Accept the comfort and encouragement of friends. Find a support group.
Ask the experts. Connect with professionals. Seek help and advice from trained people in your community or work.
Don’t wait for help. Create a support system if it doesn’t exist. Join in. Learn from them. Support someone else. Make connections.
These three SOS strategies, no matter how well they are planned, will not help unless we are ready to get going! It is important that we use these three ways to deal with stress by making a plan and acting.
Think about each coping skill and the three major SOS plans. Which SOS plan will work for you?
What should or will you do first?
What’s your next step in coping?
What must you do to improve the way you handle stress?

** even through our journey, stress enters our lives and effects all avenues of our life. How we react is crucial; finding healthful solutions that work for each of is equally important. This brief memo was provided to me via a Womans Support Group, this memo is not for women only though. A worthy lesson to be shared with all of you whom I consider an extension of my family.

Get out of the arena of problems. Have you not been sailing that sea? Do you have your course set for problems?
Do you greet your computer with: "What are you going to get me into today? What hurdle are you going to cause me? Why must you always be harassing me?"
Is that really how you want to begin your day?
Consider your computer like a loving dog of yours. Be happy to see it in the morning. Give it hugs mentally and pet it. "Good boy. Good boy." Or "Good girl. Good girl."
Do you wake up in the morning and think: "What kind of stress is today going to bring me? I just want to get back to sleep. Another day, another dollar."
If your thoughts predict your day, what kind of day are you predicting?
Fool your day today. Trick it. Anticipate it in a friendly way.
Why should your computer or your day be friendly to you when you look at it so crossly?
Am I guaranteeing you a wonderful day? I guarantee that you will feel better whatever befalls. Start out right, beloveds. Don't start your day out wrong.
Stop predicting predicaments. Predict good will. Be of good cheer. Let your thoughts predict a line of wonderment. At the very least, you will give yourself some joy.
Do not think of your day as penance or a sentence to disappointment. Appoint your day. Appoint it welcome. Pat your day on the head and say: "Good day, good day. Very very good day. Thank you."
Give a thought or two to Me. Invite Me to come along with you today. Give Me a ride in your car or a seat on the bus next to you.
Your mood draws a color to your day. Dark mood? Dark day. Bright sun? Bright day. Make your day beloved. Have a beloved day. Make this a day of celebration.
Consider today to be a walk through the park. Make it easy for today to be your day. This is your day, after all. It is a coach that has come for you. Be Cinderella today on her way to the ball. Consider your day with alacrity. Zoom up to your day, ready and willing. Hop in. Let the coach of your day get going. You are going to a ball. You are going to a wonderful place. Light up your life, beloveds, by lighting up today. Today only is your project. One day at time.
Make your day a good day. Give it a good name. What will you name your day today?
Here are some names I suggest: Happy day. Good-natured day. Promised day. Willing day. Joyful day. Enlivening day. Fun day.
Certainly, you are not going to call your day: Day of Reckoning or Mistake after Mistake Day. You can do better than that. Certainly not: "Worst day."
If the day is your beloved pet, lure it with treats. "Here, good day, here is something you like. Here's a biscuit. Here's a bone. Here's a bonus for you. Let's take a walk together or go for a ride together. Let's get to work and roll up our sleeves together. And when the work day is over, let's go home and carry joy with us, and hand it out when we get home. Let going home be going home to a party."
Open your front door and make yourself welcome.
The whole world is your home. You live in it. How you live in it is up to you. What you carry with you is up to you. Take off your coat. Come sit down. Put your feet up. Now have a good evening.
