6 Ways to be your own Best Friend

Hi Friends, sharing with you again in gratitude, my personal notes on the 3rd Talk of the Series: MAGNETIC by our Feast Builder Bro Dreus Cosio @ The Feast SM Santa Rosa, Cinema 1,  two weeks ago.  

Sorry for posting this late; I just had to accomplish a lot lately -- but  I don't wanna miss this chance because being a mother of three daughters, I dearly hope this would be something they can always go back to when they come to the RIGHT TIME of finding their "Mr. Right".  I sure do hope that this would also help a lot of parents out there while they fervently desire for their child's best future. 

How to Attract The Right Person Into Your Life

Talk 3: The Bond

When you try to look for the right person,
"Hanapin mo yong taong gagawin kang priority, hindi temporary."

Basically, both men and women -- some, if not all -- do not really know how to attract the right person in their life. 

Why? -- because people are getting confused in their love story and with the way they look at themselves.  

Unconscious as they are, there is that tendency to carelessly submit or comply with the  3 Laws of Romantic Attraction:
1st law
You don’t attract who you deserve.
You attract who you think you deserve.

Subconsciously, you see yourself in a very low way.   You've got to consider that your perception is your reality.  If you perceive yourself as somebody who is broken, you will be looking for another broken person. 
The perfect formula for a toxic relationship is a toxic self.

2nd law
You don’t attract who you want. You attract who you are.

A wounded person will attract another wounded person. An emotionally healthy person will attract another healthy person.

3rd law
You don’t attract how you want to be treated
You attract how you treat yourself.
Long before he treated her as garbage, she already treated herself as garbage.To her, abuse felt like love.

Broken people attracts broken people.  "If you don’t do the inner work to heal yourself, your unhealed wounds will attract another wounded person."
 "If you don’t heal your own wounds, you’ll go into a relationship, seeking for someone else to heal your wounds."

You get attracted to many wrong people because you don't really think of your self too well.  
TO ATTRACT THE RIGHT PERSON, you've got "WORK ON YOUR SELF FIRST!"  Unless you have a healthy relationship with yourself, you’ll never have a healthy relationship with others.

Its ok for you to declare that you are wonderfully made.  You have to love yourself!

Here are these 6 WAYS  to be your own BEST FRIEND:

1. Forgive your faults.
    Imagine yourself at the end of the day and forgive yourself.

2. Fix your fences.
    Fix your defence system -- your boundaries.  Protect yourself from meanness. 

3.  Feel your feelings.
    All emotions are valid but not all expressions.  Affirming your feelings is respecting yourself. 
    Put a gap between emotion and expression. 

4. Focus on your fantasies.
    What do you picture in your mind? 
    Stop thinking about the bad stuff that's happening in your life.  

5. Follow your fun.
    Don't take yourself too seriously. "tumawa ka naman!" :) 
    Laugh more often! 

6. Find your flow.
    Go on, pursue your passion as a person!
    If you find your flow -- your "zone" -- you feel alive. 
Go back to yourself.  Be comfortable with one thing in life -- be comfortable with God's love.

The bond simply means you have to fix your relationships at home by fixing your self first.  You have to love your self every day.  You have to feel good about yourself because  it all boils down on how you see yourself!

Bro Dreus concluded with this advice:
"Everyday, start declaring the wonderful characters that you are!  Couples as well, you could start to embrace your differences and start fixing your relationship."

Pwedeng may part ng buhay mo na hindi ka sanay
But you need to be comfortable in that place--- how? 
Magpamahal ka kay God.

Allow God to tell you how much He loves you! 

"True Character is who you are and what you do -- even when no one is watching you!"

Thank you, Angels in Disguise!

Pls Read God’s Silent Message: John 14:1-12


Once, a baby asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?… who will protect me?”

God answered: “Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you. Your angel will LOVE YOU AS I DO & defend you even if it means risking her life.”

Such God’s answer eased the baby’s worry and for the last time asked: “God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.” Then God said, “You will simply call her, Mom.

Just as Jesus said in today’s Gospel, “Do not let your heart be troubled!”, He sent us an “angel in disguise” to protect us from helplessness and to make us feel secured amidst worries.

God could have been so happy if every child would recognize how His assigned angel has done her tasks so well. But sad, that sometimes, it would take a story like this before a child would realize the importance of a Mother:
“Hello Operator, does Heaven have a phone number? Mommy went to Heaven, but I need her here today, my tummy hurts and I fell down, I need her right away. Operator, can you tell me how to find her in this book? Is heaven in the yellow pages, I don’t know where to look.I think my daddy needs her too, at night I hear him cry.I hear him call her name sometimes, but I really don’t know why. Maybe if I call her, she will hurry home to me. Is Heaven very far away, is it across the sea?  She’s been gone a long, long time she needs to come home now!  I really need to reach her, but I simply don’t know how. Help me find the number please, is it listed under “Heaven”?I can’t read these big big words, I am only seven.I’m sorry operator, I didn’t mean to make you cry,Is your tummy hurting too, or is there something in your eye? If I call my church, maybe they will know. Mommy said when we need help that’s where we should go. I found the number to my church tacked up on the wall. Thank you operator, I’ll give them a call.” 
Whew!!….be worried if this simple short story didn’t make you cry. I read it twice and I shed tears thrice -- only to realize that a Mom’s task does not end where she had to stop.  

She trains their kids to live the values that would make them dignified persons. She corrects and even reprimands each time a child disobeys and does things under peer pressure & other not so good influences.  She reaches out even when kids do not appreciate her every effort. She persists even when kids does not respond to her messages -- just to explain what kids should understand. She bears any sort of pain until so unaware her physical health already suffers.  She missions out not only to “bridge her every child’s needs” but also to the father of her kids.

If we will only read between these lines and allow God’s message to dig deep within our hearts, we would realize that every Mother’s bit of sacrifice is because The Father who dwells in her is doing His works.”

“I don't speak on my own authority.
The Father who sent me has commanded me what to say and how to say it.”John 12:49

In gratitude, we’d rather do something that would make her feel how much we hope not to give a heaven’s operator a call.  Instead, we would give HER the warmest HUG and whisper to her our heart out:

If you’re a “child” who came across this, please honor every STRIVING MOM you know,
specially yours whom Heaven-sent!

Happy Mother’s Day  Dear Angels in disguise!

Your Words will Create your Reality

In gratitude, I would like to share with you my personal notes on the 1st Talk of the New Series: MAGNETIC by our Feast Builder Bro Dreus Cosio and his wife, Sis Love M. Cosio @ The Feast SM Santa Rosa, Cinema 1. 

How to Attract The Right Person Into Your Life

Talk 1: The Beauty.

A lot of women are unaware that they tend to "chase off" the right guy.  Good that we have this New Series to give Tips on How to Attract the Right Person.  

Intending to focus on all THE SINGLE LADIES in the house, Bro Dreus Cosio boosted the truth that: 
"It is not true that all the good men are taken!

He cautioned that we’ve got to be careful with the things that we say because our words will create our reality. Ladies should “give that door of opportunity” to those guys out there, instead of saying that there’s no more of them to be found.

Yet, while women are looking for their “THE ONE”,
they should never loose that ability to be mysterious. 

The fact that ultimately MEN ARE HUNTERS. Men would actually love women of mystery!
Women then should not give everything right away; instead, keep up with the power of mystery  and modesty.  

A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown,
but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. -- Proverbs 12:4

A beautiful woman lacking discretion and modesty
is like a fine gold ring in a pig’s snout. Proverbs 11:22

Exemplary of such modesty, proud husband Bro Dreus requested his wife Sis Love Cosio to share some empowering measures of optimism not only to the single ladies, but also to parents who are raising their precious ones.

Some of Sis Love’s inspiring lines on how to love appropriately:
“You have to take care of yourself!  
Hindi mo kailangang pagdaanan ang pinagdaanan ng ibang tao.  
Women can always dictate until what level her relationships should be. 
You have to create a world of your ownIf you are a person of your own, your man would admire you all the more!    
When you get married you need to have your life as well.  
Lagi mong isipin na kawalan ng lalaki kung pakakawalan ka nya!  
Only give him as much attention that he is giving you!”

Learn to love appropriately.  You need to use your head and test your feelings, so that your love is sincere and intelligent, NOT SENTIMENTAL GUSH! -- Philippians 1:9-10

To end, the power couple’s NOTE OF HOPE:

 Let people celebrate who you are

Yes, despite the mistakes in the past, you can still find all the possibilities to make things right. The one who created you is telling you “You're precious!”

Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD
will be greatly praised. -- Proverbs 31:30

"True Character is who you are and what you do -- even when no one is watching you!"

You Can Heal Your Own Wounds

Pls Read God’s Silent Message: Mt 5:17-37

Do not take a false oath,
but make good to the Lord all that you vow.
But I say to you, do not swear at all.
Let your 'Yes' mean 'Yes,'and your 'No' mean 'No.'
Anything more is from the evil one."

Would you know one of the reasons why some wounds don’t heal?

May mga sugat na halos ayaw mong gamutin kasi masakit kapag nililinis;
to the point na magagalit ka pa sa naglilinis ng sugat mo kasi nasasaktan ka!

We have doctors all around to tell us how to heal our wound; we have nurses to assist and loved ones to care for us while we’re hurting…yet we end up offending them; we don’t listen to the doctor’s instructions because we’ve focused on our pain and we kept on doing the wrong thing.

What we do not realize is, we can actually HEAL OUR OWN WOUND if we would be brave enough to CLEAN IT UP BY OURSELVES by following how we were instructed.

In today’s Gospel, God  wants us to understand His intention for giving us His commandments which He yearn to be fulfilled in us. All that He expects is for us is to strive to do the right thing: overcome negativity with possibilities; triumph against every temptation to be weak; reach out to forgive those who’ve offended us and look within to forgive our own self from our wrong doings.

Our heart is the seat of our motivations. If only we will find that inspiration deep within to allow God’s love to move in our life, we would then comply as directed, follow as instructed! We won’t have to hold back the pains caused upon us, as we will no longer offend carelessly – then we wont have to endure our wounds at all! #sunset
