Finding your center
An Ultimate Transformation Moment
During today’s Ultimate Transformation Moment, let’s find a way to become centered in our lives.
In order to live the life that you want, you’ve got to find a perspective that puts you in the best situation possible—your center.
There are a few things you can do to help you find your center. We know that the distance from the center of a circle to the circumference is the same. This means you’re going to be able to look at life from a perspective that gives you the best vision of it, in every facet of your life.
The first step to finding your center is releasing the idea of perfection. We must learn to let go of this idea that we have to be perfect, and that the people in our lives and in our world have to be perfect. We are imperfect human beings. What we have to focus on is doing our best in every situation. Once the best effort is given, it’s done. Regardless of the result, it is now time to move on, create a new idea and give another best effort.
Most people have an understanding in their lives that they’re trying and giving their best. When you expect perfection out of people, you begin to judge them, or yourself and that creates an imbalance. So, it pulls you from center. We want to stay centered.
The second step to becoming centered is to move beyond past events. In order to find center, the events that have happened in the past, whether they are negative or positive, must be put behind you. Learn from these events, find closure to these events then move/grow past them. If you continue to relive the negative experiences over and over you will remain in that place, and you start to lose your perspective. You start to move away from your center. You are dwelling in the past, and no longer in the present.
The third step is to act. Stop trying to do things and actually do them. However, you must believe in the ideas that are inside of you and make conscious acts to bring them to fruition and to accomplish them. Just start doing them. Many times we spin our wheels and believe we are making progress, or sit still and just think that accomplishments just happen. Oh yeah? Once you create a thought, you have to follow-up with the deed. When you remain purposeful, you remain centered.
The fourth step is to seek knowledge. Empower yourself with information. The more knowledge you have, the more accurate your steps will be as you stride toward your individual goals.
Finally, at the beginning of your day and at the end of your day, welcome God’s spirit and the universal spirit into your balance. Speak to God, the universe, everything that’s around you, and state, “I am open and available to more good than I’ve ever imagined,” and you’re opening yourself up to the best the day/life has to offer.
That’s our Ultimate Transformations Moment. Peace and be more.

This week’s Ultimate Transformation Moment focuses on simple tips to help you remain mentally and physically healthy during the holiday season. There are infinite possibilities to keep a positive mind and physically strong body during the season known for overindulgent eating and spending.
This week’s Ultimate Transformation Moment places our focus on the moment. At any given time during the day, all we have is simply a moment. Right now, we have only this moment in time.
We tend to find ourselves focusing on future events like the coming holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas, or the end of the year. Other times, we find ourselves focusing on the past, or events that we cannot change.
This week’s Ultimate Transformation Moment is on appreciation. Spiritually speaking, the present moment is truly all we have at any given moment in our lives.
As we find ourselves in the midst of the holiday season, it is easy to become carried away with excitement. And with this season of giving comes propaganda that sways many away from their individual goals. Therefore, the Ultimate Transformation Moment in this issue pertains to individual control. Make your own decisions, and make your own choice about what will move you this holiday season.
Most of us have excess sodium and sugar in our body. The question is, how do we eliminate it?
We are acutely aware of the debilitating effects of excess sodium and sugar, which tend to present themselves in the form of disease. Blood flow is compromised, which minimizes the circulation of good nutrients and vitamins throughout the body. Additionally, a tremendous amount of pressure is placed on the internal organs, such as the kidneys, the pancreas and the heart.
