There's a tab there for so, um I did an interview tonight and I'm just sitting here listening to the rain hitting the roof. That's so calming to me. I don't know about you guys, but it is calming to me and it's so peaceful and in times the times that we're living in, it's so easy to get caught up in everything that's going on and we have to search even more for things that represent peace to us. Um, but guys. I just had one of the greatest experiences of my life and to some people. It may not be that big of an experience. Oh well it is for me. I mean, so what now I'm playing, but it is for me. I just got off the air as I said, uh, with one of our guests. And if you ever had a conversation and if you know me, I'm big on conversation, I'm very big on conversation. I do not like meaningless, empty conversation.
I love conversation that's full of purpose. And when I'm talking about full of purpose, I mean the conversation is going somewhere, I'm not saying we just have to be set and hold a serious conversation. As a matter of fact, I love to talk about sports. I love to talk about life. I love to joke and play all of those things. But in the midst of it, I always feel like if you're going to have a conversation, you ought to leave with something. Uh, when, whenever anybody approaches me and we're having a conversation or there's any type of exchange going on or we have to be together for a certain period of time. I pray daily that God, the people that you place in my life, regardless of the time that they experienced with me, let their testimony be that once they were in my presence they left greater than when they came to me. That's my prayer constantly. Like It's not anything that I attempt to overdo or anything like that.
I just in me I one of the greatest lessons I learned in life and I wish I had learned it earlier in life. I learned this in my 30's. Just be you, you don't have to be anybody else. The greatest level of freedom and joy and to me, deliverance and healing is when you learn to authentically be who you are and you don't worry about what others will think. You don't worry about what others will say how to receive you. You understand the most important thing is that you receive you okay. And I don't know how we went there. But nevertheless I just got off, you know an interview with an amazing guest. God's an amazing guest. But I would say, oh we were talking about conversation, we were having this conversation, I was listening to talk about what she was called and created to do and I kind of zoned out a little bit. I listen to everything she said and you know the things I miss I go listen to replay the replay.
But it was igniting something inside of me that I had kind of put on the back burner or kind of forgotten about as it related to the ministry that was in my life like all of you, we're all in this pandemic and there's times we're having the greatest moments of self reflection, even when we don't want to have those moments of self reflection is so much time for us just to deal with us. You know, and it's I talk very freely about how I was and was an emotional and a physical and a spiritual and a psychological runner and times like this, we can't run, we can't run were in that room by ourselves, in that home by ourselves and we're having more time by ourselves than we ever had. And it's causing us to do some internal work. And I really believe that that's something if you're gonna be great at anything and we all are wired and designed to be great.
I don't care what your upbringing was, I don't care what it is you went through. I don't care about the decisions that you made that were not that great. We all were destined to be great. There is purpose inside of each and every one of us. But if we're ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever gonna reach those levels and dimensions of greatness, then there are some realities that we have to come to and one of those realities I came to why I was right there on the show is that although I'm doing this great work and and God is blessing the work that I'm doing there are um parts of what I've created, I've been created to do that I've abandoned and some of those things have been abandoned because of certain things, I just didn't want to face in my life and no matter how great people receive what I do and all of those great things, I will never be fulfilled internally.
I will never reach success internally until I do it the way that I was called, created and designed to do and this whole episode and I know when I put it out, it's going to be a blessing to everybody and I'm talking about the radio show right now, but this tonight's radio show was for me, it was for me, it was a reminder for me exactly what it is that I have been called and designed to doing and how strange and weird God wired me and I've embraced, I got a T shirt that's about to come out. It talks about I'm weird and there's an acronym that goes along with it. I'm not going to release the acronym yet because when I release the t shirt, I'm going to release it, you know, through a podcast episode. But I'm weird and I thought about that for years. I tried so hard to prove that I was not something that I was.
Have you ever done that before? You spent so many years trying to prove to everybody that you were not something that you actually were. And the reason why is because you didn't think it was okay to be that I didn't think it was okay to be weird. I didn't think it was okay to be different. I thought my difference. I fought what the creator used to make me unique. You get what I'm saying, the things that he used to make me unique. I fought them. I hated him. I did not want that in my life. I always saw it as he could have done it this way from my looks to my voice. Now can y'all believe that I hate my voice. I get so many compliments about it. I think I talked about this on the show before too. I get so many compliments about my voice and the reality is I just started liking my voice. I did not like my voice, my looks. I constantly get compliments about my looks and you know, I do know that I look good. However, there's some things that I would like to see changed with my laws.
I get that, you know, I mean? You know what I'm saying? Um but there's things that God when I look in the mirror and I think about how he's called, how he created, how design, how he designed me, even how I think my process of thinking, my process of executing things, my process of caring and loving and guys that was something I wrestled hard with because a lot of my friends over the years don't understand my process and the love that I had for people and the patients that I've had for certain people and if you're not careful and and knowing who you are out of love, Friends and family members will have you severing connections with individuals that it may not meant for you to may not be meant for you to sever. I'm not talking about like where it's like toxic, toxic and you know, you're wrapped up in and you're being abused physically, mentally, spiritually, whatever you're being abused.
But I'm talking about where God has given you a level of grace to love individuals through certain things that other people don't understand. And if you're not careful, you'll seek counsel from people that just don't have that measure or extension of grace that you have. And before you know it, you'll find yourself modifying your behavior and and accepting an alternate personality, an approach in view point of situations that you have to fight to get back to who you are and if you got to fight to get back to who you are, I encourage you to fight to get back to who you are. And if you're having those thoughts and you're having those struggles even internally within you and you're like cliff, I don't even know how to fight to get back to me, reach out to me, text me in all caps. Help with the exclamation mark. You know what I'm saying to 30 to 6485544.
If you don't want to text me email me at info at Clifton's Pettijohn dot com and then the subject just put help and then in the body just write help as many times as you need to write it because I want us all to get through this thing together. I did not create a podcast just for you to listen to me. I want to interact with you uh as a coach, as a spiritual leader, as a strategist, I want to be there with you along your journey so we can celebrate together. There's something about togetherness and I'm gonna tell you this, I'm an introvert. I'm an introvert. So to be honest with you, the pandemic hasn't really affected me much. I don't like to go out much honestly, but where it has affected me is I do like to hug now I'm not a big hugger. But if I connect with you on that level, I do like to hug because I know that there is energy that is exchanged through touch through conversation and through your through my presence.
I know energy can be exchanged and I know sometimes people need that energy and sometimes I need that energy. So that part I do miss. But other than that, I really don't miss too much anything because like I said, I really don't go anywhere. But anyway, I just wanted to get on and and encourage you to have the conversations that you need to have and have conversations with the right people as a conversationalist. I experience it all the time where me sitting and listening to individuals are talking to individuals unlocks uh, dimensional thoughts and dimensional processes and dimensional actions within them. However, I experienced that sometimes, but tonight I experienced it in a way spiritually that I haven't experienced it in a while. So my encouragement to you is stop fighting whoever it is that you need to have a conversation with with. Maybe it's me you need to have a conversation with. I'm easy to talk to yo what's up?
Why y'all not trying to talk to me? Like I'm really easy to talk to. Uh that is something that God has graced me with. But if you want to reach out, feel free. But if it's whoever it is that you need to reach out to reach out to them. Now, if you are on a stalker level, don't reach out to the one that you're stalking. You do not need to talk to them. You need to talk to somebody to help you get through that to understand that you can have a mutual stalking situation with somebody. You don't need to stalk somebody. It just isn't feeling you you ever seen that movie is that he's just not into your she's just not into you. Let's have a conversation so we can get on the right path and we'll start making decisions that are beneficial for us, our purpose, our family, and this world guys All right, So thank you for tuning in on tonight. I pray that something was said that you know doesn't just inspire you.
But it provokes you to action and provokes you to understanding the greatness that is inside of you. You may not fully understand the greatness but I want you to, every time you listen to me get a gain a greater understanding of the greatness that's inside of you.
