Black and Light

These are turbulent times to be sure in the U.S. The promises from many that 2020 was going to be an eye-opening year has certainly not disappointed. Clear vision to see what is really going on is to take place during this year 2020. At many times, I am at a loss for words for it all. At these times, I remember to stop, be still, and give it to God. All will be well in God’s time. The problem is we never know how long God’s time exactly is…so I am waiting and holding the light. During this time, I keep hearing the words from Stop In the Name of Love.

Today, I was chastised for saying ALL lives matter instead of Black lives matter. I believe black lives matter as do yellow, red, brown, white, and olive. Every human life matters, in my opinion. I just think when I say “black” lives matter it shows separation. I am tired of all the separation. We are not separate. We are one. And we all matter!!! We are each uniquely and divinely created in and of God, source of all.

The color black is actually made up of all the colors of the rainbow into one color. The color black represents all the colors of the human race in one color to be technical. So, then let us be technical and when we say black lives matter let us understand that color represents all lives matter. And no, I am not passively racist by saying so. Maybe the ones who are so quick to point and judge others are passively racist. We often see in others what we cannot see in ourselves – mirroring and projection. We all have shadow sides we need to explore. 2020 seems to also be shaping up as a big shadow reveal year. Maybe we are to clearly see our own shadows? After all, how can we create a new earth full of love and peace when we cannot be honest with ourselves and our own shadows?

There is so much injustice in the world for so many people. From the Chinese people under communist rule to Brazil’s struggle for freedom to migrant workers in the field to refugees fleeing from their countries to the native American Indians whose land was taken from them, to the ancestry of slavery, to the immigrant looking for a better life the human plight continues and the list goes on.

As a lightworker, I believe my main purpose is to hold the light, to shine the light, and to share the light with others. What is the light? The light is represented by the high vibrations of love, joy, peace, forgiveness, truth and understanding. The light stands opposite of the dark and yet they are one in our world of duality. Duality was what I thought I was going to write about today because I have learned so much and am anxious to share it with you, but as I started to write, it seemed this is what Spirit wanted me to express first.

Darkness exists in our world just as does the light. Darkness is where the lower vibrations of hate, fear, anger, dishonesty, and greed live. It is in darkness that much evil is perpetrated both figuratively and literally. I think it is because it is hidden in the dark unlike in the light. As it turns dark at night currently, it seems to embolden the violent rioters to inflict more hurt and damage. We each have a choice to live in the dark or live in the light.

I recently learned about Ho’oponopono from the medium I saw during my trip to Texas in February this year. She said it would be a good practice for me to make peace with my inner child and shadow side. I looked up Ho’oponopono on the flight back home. Once I looked it up, I realized this was not something new to me. I had heard and briefly practiced it a year earlier through an activity on the Collective Evolution website.

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian practice for healing. Ho’oponopono means to make (ho’o) right (pono) right (pono) to correct relationship problems. Ponopono means “to put to rights; to put in order or shape, correct, revise, adjust, amend, regulate, arrange, rectify, tidy up, make orderly or neat”.

Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona, recognized as a kahuna lapaʻau (healer) in Hawaii brought her updated version of Ho’oponopono to the world. Self I-Dentity through Ho’oponopono® (SITH®) is an updated Hawaiian problem solving process to release memories that are experienced as problems. She was recognized by the State of Hawaii as a Living Treasure in 1983. (https://www.hooponopono.org/)

“If we can accept that we are the sum total of all past thoughts, emotions, words, deeds and actions and that our present lives and choices are colored or shaded by this memory bank of the past, then we begin to see how a process of correction or setting aright can change our lives, our families and our society.”
~ Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona

Dr. Hew Len learned that by using this potent forgiveness and releasing process, one is able to “clear your mind of subconscious blocks so that destiny and desire can take over and help you get what you truly want from life. It clears out unconsciously accepted beliefs, thoughts, and memories that you don’t even know are holding you back.” Dr. Len and Joe Vitale co-authored the book Zero Limits, which chronicles this journey.

So, this is deep, but hang in there and reread it a few times … Dr. Len used this technique by himself to clear past traumas for high security inmates he was working with by practicing Ho’oponopono over their files. Close to quantum science, the fundamentals of Ho’oponopono is that what you observe, you influence. To a certain degree, you have a part of responsibility in what you experience, if not for simply being there as everything is interrelated and all one. In the Hawaiian traditional way of seeing life, we function from the conscious mind that decides everything we do, regulates our habits, etc. The subconscious, also known as the inner child, witnesses everything without words. The subconscious is the scribe to our inner world, thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and memories. Finally, there is the higher self which directly connects us to source, many refer to this as the soul or super conscious. Our higher self is our inside voice, the wisdom part of ourselves that surprises us with amazing insights and maturity. Our higher self, or super conscious, can communicate directly with our subconscious. However, it is difficult for most of us to consciously connect to either the subconscious or super conscious. Therefore, rekindling with our subconscious who has recorded everything could be of great benefit for us to see our shadows and heal ourselves which in turn heals others as we are all one in super consciousness.

Put simply, if we all practice Ho’oponopono with the intent to heal our world then we will in fact heal our world. I have started practicing this every night when I go to bed. You can also practice it while looking at yourself in the mirror.  There are many videos or recordings with the words which I use as I fall asleep. I envision different people as I say the words to myself including envisioning my younger self. Lately, I have envisioned George Floyd and protestors too. I have even envisioned politicians I dislike.  Here are a couple of options, there are many more on YouTube.

Ho’oponopono Song

Ho’oponopono Meditation

Along with practicing Ho’oponopono, I propose we shine a light on the color black. Let us celebrate the color black for what it is – the summation of all color – by shining the light of love, peace, forgiveness, healing, and understanding. I am lighting one candle to symbolize our unity as all one human species on this one earth under our one God, divine Source of All while saying the Ho’oponopono prayer:

I love you.   I am sorry.   Please forgive me.   Thank you.

I genuinely believe as a collective we can affect change in our world by this one simple act of lighting one candle with this intention. Let us shine the light in the darkness of our world. Let us hold this light for all to see, to come home to, to find the peace and healing so many seek.

In the Stillness

The captivity started with the Coronavirus

Next came the captivity of my community

Followed by the captivity of my house

Now I am a captive of my own thoughts

No place to go but within myself

To be still

To know my God

No church open to give me their God

My God calls from within

My God leads me to green pastures

My God comforts me

In this captivity

In this stillness

I know my God

My God is an infinite, loving, abundant God

All will be well says my God

He lives in me and I in Him

No building is needed

Just time

Just stillness born by the illness

In the stillness find your God

He is calling to you

Harken the voice from within

Be still

Be one with your God

Namaste

Me and My Shadow

Did you know we all have a shadow?  I didn’t. I have heard of shadow work but did not know that everyone has a shadow side.  In fact, to fully realize your potential it is necessary to explore your shadow side. Hmm. This has been crossing my path for a reason as there are no coincidences.  As I was exploring today, I ran across something I wrote a couple of months ago.  I don’t know if you remember me saying I have been feeling the call to poetry as I shared in my post, Shine Your Light, from January.  It seems now that I reread it, even my writing is suggesting a shadow … what do you think?

I and Me

We have been on our own now for a while, I and me.

We have been doing fine for awhile now, I and me.

Even though we are married it’s really just, I and me.

I’m learning to grow now, I and me.

I’m coming into my own now, I and me.

Soon you will know me, I and me.

Stop in the Name of Love

Last night after participating in the global meditation for world healing, this phrase came to my mind … Stop in the name of love, before we destroy ourselves.  Stop the conspiracies. Stop the finger pointing.  Stop the judgement. Stop the politics.  Stop crashing our lives.  My project today was to write it out.  I am no professional by any means but my whole heart was in it.  My intent is to bring ideas for our new earth out into the open for all to think about.  So, here it is enjoy!!

You Now Have Time

The first few months of 2020, I spent reviewing and resetting myself or so I thought. Bam! Mother nature hit me over the head to say wake up! Since the Corona-Confinement, I can see much more clearly that I was deluding myself if I thought I had taken the journey within.  In my head I hear, ‘you now have time finish to finish the job.’

It has taken me a couple of weeks to get isolated enough to start to look at myself deeply since there is no one else to look at anymore. No one else to watch, to critique, to project my stuff on. Just me and my other three family members in the house with me but I have already analyzed them. We moved to the country so there is no one to watch out of my window either. The only person left to look at is me. What if this was by divine design?

What if this time-out for the human race, caused by the virus, was purposeful divine timing? What if this is the “event” that has been prophesied? The sky is still blue. The sea is not red. The sun still comes up every morning. And yet, we have all shifted into neutral. Our normal lives have been put on hold. After two weeks of staying home, in the United States,  we have now been told another 30 days.

Another 30 days to sit and ponder. Am I safe from the virus? Will I recover from the virus? How is this affecting my family and my loved ones? How do I get income if I have lost it? How do I keep a job if I still have one? I have to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. How will I survive this physically, mentally, emotionally, and economically? The answer is faith. Faith in a power higher than your own. A faith in something that cannot be seen or heard but can be felt in your heart.

Be still and know that I am God.  (Psalms 46:10)

I think this verse sums up the whole situation. We have all been made to slow down around the world. It is a global pause. A time out, for not just us, but also for mother earth as well, as we stay home. It is a time for us all to reset ourselves. Reset our way of living. Reset our way of thinking. It is an opportunity for a rebirth. Maybe, dare I say it, a new earth…

We are each being forced by circumstances beyond our control to reevaluate our lives – what we do, how we live, how we care for one another. This is bigger than politics. This is bigger than religion. You notice in both politics and religion that each has the ability to polarize humans against each other. I can’t imagine its good for us if it can polarize us against one another. It might be time to shift the paradigm. Get outside of the box thinking and look around. You’ve got the time now to do just that! Maybe that is the gift – Time. God has given us each time to stop and look at our lives. What do you see?

For the next 30 days, I challenge you to accept the divine gift of time we have each been given to really look at ourselves, our families, our communities, our country, and our world. Think outside the box, brainstorm ideas and practices, talk about the bad and the good – with yourself. The conversation is with yourself, so you are safe to speak your true thoughts. You can have silent conversations in your mind, journal your thoughts through writing, or speak them aloud in the mirror. This is your opportunity to create a world of your choosing.

Some concepts to consider and reshape. We have been doing things the same way for a long time. Are they still relevant? Are there better ways to address the same problem? Again, think outside the box.

  • When was the last time you asked yourself if you were happy? What would make you happy?
  • Do you cherish your family or tolerate your family? What would you like to see change in your family?
  • Do you belong to a community? Describe that community? It could be your neighborhood, town, church, school, work, etc.
  • How does your community or communities make you feel? Does it bring out your best qualities? What could you do differently?
  • Schools are closed and students are learning from home? What are the positives and negatives of online or distance learning? What are some ways our education system needs to change?
  • Everyone is concerned with their health and our healthcare system during this pandemic. If we started from scratch in designing healthcare how would it look? What is basic healthcare for all? What is the difference between elective procedures and required procedures? What role does mental health play in basic healthcare? What role does society play in basic healthcare? What role does government play in basic healthcare? What role does the world play in basic healthcare?
  • Looking at work/life balance the tables have been flipped in many cases. More people are working from home than in the workplace during this time. Has working from home affected you? How do you find work/life balance? What would you like to see change in the workplace?
  • In the US, our 50 states form a union under our one federal government. The original plan from our founding fathers was for the federal government to provide life, liberty, security, sovereignty for the union. Over time, the federal government has taken on more duties from the states for the states. What do you see is the purpose of the federal government? What do you see is the purpose of the state government? What is the purpose of political parties, namely Republicans and Democrats? Do political parties divide us? Is this division in our best interest? What would you change in how the states and federal government are run? How do you feel about term limits in the government? Describe your vision of good government?
  • Looking at the world, what is the responsibility for each country to one another? At the global level there are world politics, world finance, and world religion. How do these interplay with one another? How does what happens on a global level affect you? Does it matter what happens on a global level? What changes are needed globally that affects us all?

There are many more branches on this tree of life we could explore, and I encourage you to keep going as more bubble up for you in the next 30 days. We have been given the gift of time to reevaluate, to reset, to find balance in our lives, our communities, and our world.  Let’s put our gift to use! Feel free to share your thoughts, ideas, or questions in the comments below.

Let go of the differences, Embrace the similarities.
Let go of judgement, Embrace common ground.
Let go of the old ways, Embrace new ideas.
Let go of divisions, Embrace unity.

Shine Your Light

The time has come to shine my light. I have been waiting, listening, for the point in time it was to be. It came today. Now is the time to write, to shine my light. To remind you, that it is time, as well, to shine your light. I began this journey in September 2018 with a list given to me that in hindsight may have been steps on my journey. This is the last subject on the list, “Shine Your Light.” I have been waiting for over six months for the body of the message to come to me. Five hours ago, it arrived in my life.

There is a great awakening coming upon us being ushered in this weekend by the universe with the Stellium on January 12, 2020. An astrological event that has not happened for 500 years. Many expect this planetary movement will bring sweeping global and personal changes, transitions, and ultimate transformation over the next 12 to 18 months. That sounds impressive… I am interested… and so I listen. Given the events that have occurred in just the first week of 2020, I am intrigued to learn more.

I have watched the news headlines play out much of what I had learned would be coming. Corruption is being exposed at all levels of institutions and structures: government, religious, education, pharmaceutical, media, and within our communities. Some stories were expected while others were a shock. Yet, for the most part we continue with our lives, or at least I continued with my life. I decided it was better to not give my energy to the darkness of the world. I spend my time envisioning an honest and happy world where everyone succeeds. I spend my time cultivating the gift within, which we all have, to co-create a world that makes me happy. (You Create Your Reality) I believe it was time well spent for now the time has come for us all to awaken to our power, to create our lives as we want to live.

I have spent the last six months practicing meditation. (Stay Present, Stay Centered, Stay Connected) It is much easier now for me to connect with the divine and to float in peaceful meditation. I have been practicing honing my intuition. I have been asking for my path to be illuminated and the next step to be clearly shown. Today may be the next step for which I have been practicing without knowing it. Now I am glad I kept practicing 🙂 I continue to be led to new opportunities in my life.  I can chose to listen and follow or ignore those urgings.  For the most part, I have been listening and exploring the next step.  My life is unfolding in new and unexpected ways.  We have moved into a new home, started a new business, and now I feel the urge to write poetry instead of narratives.

What if we could purge what no longer serves in our world? We could give birth to a new paradigm for a new world where we are each empowered to co-create our lives. It sounds too good to be true. I hope it is so. I am ready. Everything happens for a reason. We chose to be here at this time in history. We signed up to be a part of this shift in humanity. 2020 is the year to open our eyes to clearer vision of our world, of our possibilities and of the role we each play.

Turbulent, tumultuous times are forecasted during the shift as we face old paradigms crumbling away to give birth to new ideas and ways much like a woman endures labor to birth her new child into the world. I have birthed two children. The key is to breathe, trust, and allow nature to do its thing. (Rest in the Divine, Not the Illusion)

I am excited about the idea of a new world but also nervous and anxious. My son is active in the national guard and he was put on notice this week to have his affairs in order and to be ready in case the call comes in for his unit to deploy. In my happy world, I was unaware of the events with Iran. I am aware now and paying close attention. While I pray for peace, I am willing to fight against evil. When the time comes, everyone will have to take a stand to shine light or to hide in darkness. Unfortunately, that is the world we live in now but maybe not for long. (Out of the Shadows and Into the Light) Maybe a new world of peace, empowerment, equality, and respect will evolve … as we humans evolve.

Some Tips & Tricks for the Shift in Consciousness:

• Mind + Soul + Light: We were each born with inner guidance to navigate this life. Use it.

• If you get the feeling you should do more research on a subject, belief, or event, then do it. That is your inner guidance directing you. Listen to it. Find out what it wants you to know.

• Turn off the devices now and then so you can interact with what’s alive in the world: people, animals, plants. Listen. Learn.

• What’s your impact in the world? Is it positive? Are you who you want to be?

• Allow what is being revealed to flow. Do not judge. Allow it to come fully into the light.

• By accepting what is, then you can then ask how can I respond? Listen to your inner guidance. It will answer to lead you, if you allow it and accept it.

• The ego mind will promote fear, distrust, drama. Reject the ego mind. Don’t fall down the rabbit hole of drama.

• Through challenge, we all grow. Trust in the process. Instead of reacting – observe, see clearly all sides, listen to inner guidance, trust your intuition, then respond through the light of love.

In 2020, our vision is evolving. We are evolving. Listen to your heart, head and soul calling to you. Turn off the distractions. Be present to the world around you. The choice is always yours by divine will. (We are Light Beings). You can resist or participate in our changing world. But just remember, we are all one. (We are All One) If All are moving forward, where will you be? Trust all will be well. All will be as it should be in the end. Darkness only wins when you don’t shine your light. The light melts fear away. This is the year to shine your light! Shine it brightly! Be the you, you have always wanted to be. How will you know? It feels like you are coming home…Welcome Home!

You Are the Light

This is going to be a great week to get in touch with yourself through light. To come to know and see your internal light. First, is a big full moon shining spiritual energy on June 17th. Second, the summer “sun” solstice lights up on June 21st. I strongly encourage you to walk into the waterfall of light this week!

Let’s start with the full moon on June 17th. Apparently, this is a big one – there is going to be a very rare opening of light and divine activation with this full moon within our galaxy. These activations will call to our souls to awaken and to ascend to higher levels of consciousness. During this time, we become more enlightened and awaken to past pains or traumas we need to release to the light. I believe most people won’t notice or realize this enlightenment. Although they will have feelings bubble to the surface. The enlightenment comes when the feelings that bubble to the surface are looked at with new perspectives.

For example, I made a personal discovery this week in my relationships with my mother and sisters as it bubbled up this week a few different times. For some reason these relationships were many times challenging; meaning while I wanted a close relationship and at times it felt like a close relationship, many times it would be revealed to me later that is was not the close relationship I had thought. An easier analogy to understand would be Cinderella’s stepmother and her sisters. Cinderella was always trying to fit in, always eager to help, but just never made the final cut like going to the ball with the three of them. My mother always considers my other two sisters first before me. I grew up with a closer relationship to my father than my mother probably for this reason. Don’t get me wrong I love my mother and sisters, but we are just different on how we approach life. When I look back now, I see how my mother spent time with her two young daughters doing mother and daughter things like dance classes, scouts, shopping, etc. In our family of seven kids, I was number 5 while my other two sisters were number 2 and 3. I am thinking by the time number 5 came along wanting to do those things, my mother had done those things and was not interested. I didn’t get to take dance lessons. Funny enough, out of the three, I was the one singing and dancing around the house all the time. In college, I joined a singing and dancing group and felt my spirit come alive on the stage. I finally felt free to be me once I was living on my own.

Another thought bubble up to the surface this week that maybe my mother simply didn’t enjoy my personality like she did my sisters. Okay, I thought. I don’t like everybody, and I believe not everyone has to like me. I like me. So, it is okay if she doesn’t like me as much as she likes the others. I was always just a better fit with my dad than with my mom. Our personalities were more alike. We thought more alike. So, I am okay with this. I don’t have to be best friends with my mother or my sisters. I don’t have to keep trying to fit in. They call me when I can do something for them, but they don’t really call to just catch up. They want my help but on their terms. Many times, it feels like a one-way relationship. But maybe I am the one who must let it be and practice acceptance. I don’t have to be upset or bothered that once again mom went on and on about my sisters. I need to actively choose the voice of divine light over the voice of ego. I must choose to actively bless the situation and set it free into the light. And what’s more, I can be thankful. I am thankful because the events of the past have made me into the person I am today. I am happy with the person I am today. I like me. I am worthy. I am enough. (check out my last post if you missed it on being worthy and enough!)

This all bubbled up for me this week. I would have been totally unaware of it and how to look at it if I had not been tuned into Melanie Beckler and Tania Gabrielle, both of whom I like to follow on YouTube. However, both mentioned in their videos this week that the full moon energies gearing up were strong and going to bring up unresolved issues for us to look at again in the light. I was awakened to this unresolved issue. I feel I now have peace since looking at it in new light. Now I release it into the light to go forth more enlightened on my path.

So, be on the lookout for what bubbles up for you this week. Be open to look at it with new eyes. Be open to see all sides, to find a compromise, to find peace, and to release it to the light. In other words, be open to lose some of that baggage we all carry around to live lighter, to live happier.

Next, we have the Summer Solstice on June 21st in the northern hemisphere. The summer solstice is about forward movement and moving into the light. The sun will shine for the longest day of the year which also means the shortest night of the year. During the summer solstice the sun is at its highest point in the sky for the year. For more information along with some creative solstice celebrations, check out this post by Melanie Beckler:

Solstice Meaning and Celebrations

With the high vibrational spiritual energies surrounding both the full moon and the summer solstice, make sure to spend some time enjoying the sun and moon this week!

When I look at nature it is easy for me to see God’s hand in life. I look with wonder at the sky. A big fluffy cloud exudes such power. The sun’s rays provide warmth and light. The vastness of the number of stars in the sky astounds me. The playfulness of the moon changing size and locations makes me smirk as I look to find it in the sky. Mother nature is our mother earth. Gaia is the mother goddess who presided over earth according to Greek mythology. Many refer to Gaia as mother earth too. Our earth is about 4.54 billion years old. She has been around longer than we have. She has seen much more than we have. Thus, she is older and wiser. Spend some time enjoying mother nature this week to get back in touch with your own divine nature.

Make a point to notice the light coming from the sun, the light coming from the moon, the light shining from the stars this week. This light shines from universal source, our God. Remember you are made in the image of God. Light also shines forth from you. You come from light. You are light. Shine your light with a smile, some loving words, a helping hand, a hug or kiss, an ear to listen, a shoulder to lean on, a prayer of blessing for another. For you are the light!

I would love to hear from you. What do you think about this post? Has anything bubbled up for you? How do you like to enjoy mother nature? How do you shine your light in this world?

You Are Loved

You are greatly loved by the universe.  You are greatly loved by God who is source of all.  You are greatly loved by the angelic realms, spirit guides, ascended masters, and deceased loved ones.  You are loved!  Don’t forget it!  You are worthy of being here and you have a gift only you can give the world.  Don’t ever give up on you and the wonderful things you can do!

When you are feeling down, depressed or lonely it is because you have become disconnected from divine source.  It is easy to do in the busyness of life or when looking at our chaotic world.  However, it is just as easy to reconnect for within you is your own divine source known as your spirit.  When you are feeling down, go within to reconnect and recharge.  When you are feeling up, go outside of yourself to share your energy of light and love with others.

You are loved!  You are worthy!  You are enough just as you are! You were wonderfully made in God’s own image.  You have the power within you to create the life of your dreams.  Believe in yourself, ask, and it shall be given.

Don’t despair another day.  Ask for help.  Ask for guidance.  Ask for the light to be given you.  Ask for peace.  Ask and then believe it is so.  Give thanks and leave the when and the how to God.

Once you have asked with sincere intention, then rest.  Allow the mind and body to rest, while your spirit goes to work.  Give your request to the Christ within you and let it go.  Now comes the part where you must have faith for it shall be done in divine right timing.  That which you seek may come in many forms so be on the lookout for people, places, and events that cross your path for you are not alone on this journey.

Still not sure you are enough, watch this video to change your life…
I’m Not Enough Disease

Since I have accepted I am worthy, my life has changed to be on a higher trajectory with regular study, practice, and meditation.  I have faith that when I ask, I will receive.  I look for the answers in the unexpected.  I am given answers through coincidences and synchronicities.  Life has become magical.  However, I am now looking for the magical.  I am conscious to the possibilities.  I am mindfully engaging in my daily life to look for the clues or to follow my intuition when prompted.

As I spend time in meditation, I can feel the love of the universe flow through me.  I receive encouragement and validation to continue to seek my highest path.  Guidance is available to me anytime I ask.  My job is to stay open in how it appears.  My two hurdles are: control and patience.  I have to let go of controlling how anything happens.  I have to have patience that in divine right timing all will be done in perfect grace.

Have you discovered any hurdles on your path that you need to resolve?  How do you know you are loved by the universe?  Do you accept you are worthy to be here?  Please share in the comments below …

Allow Love, Allow Light, Allow Blessings

All things happen in divine right timing … that’s Synchronicity! I have been experiencing a lot of synchronicity lately. A meaningful coincidence is known as synchronicity and has been discussed in both scientific and spiritual worlds. Many also know this as being in synch with your life. To be in synch everything just seems to flow and come along in divine right timing for your highest good. I am starting this post reviewing synchronicity for it was through this divine timing that certain people, books, and information have crossed my path to give me the answer for this post’s focus. I was given the title and my life path was to lead me to the answer.

I believe I have found the answer to be in finding balance between giving and receiving. We each have a physical heart, but we also have a spiritual heart. Our soul resides in our spiritual heart also known as our higher heart. Our higher heart houses our higher self. To allow our higher heart to awaken we must find balance between giving and receiving in our lives. We must have an open higher heart to receive the blessings in our lives.

For most people it is easier to give than to receive, at least it is for me. I have been working on being a gracious receiver of life’s blessings lately. I am learning to accept the beauty of life’s gifts with great appreciation along with many verbal thanks and more thanks. I am learning to not feel guilty that I am not deserving enough, or I am not in need. I am learning to allow others to do for me. For each should have the opportunity to serve and if I don’t allow someone to serve me, then how am I to expect others to allow me to serve them. Now you know I am not talking about the takers in life because we each know some people who always take and never give. I am talking about the givers in life. If you are a giver, it is important for you to learn to receive – joyfully!!!

You know how it feels to give the perfect gift and to watch the joy, to feel the appreciation, and to see the results of giving that perfect gift? Well, that is how the universe feels too! Just like you it wants to give the perfect gift. Just like you it wants to witness the joy that gift brings. Just like you it is disappointed if the gift is not appreciated. Just like you it will stop giving if its gifts do not bring joy and thanksgiving.

Giving is choosing to love and choosing light;
Receiving is allowing love, allowing light and allowing blessings into your life.

Let’s all chose to light up with love and allow blessings by connecting to divine source, God of All, through opening our higher heart in giving and receiving. None of us are alone on our life path. Light and love are always available to us – we just need to remember to ask. You see the outer world tries to convince us we are separate from God; separate from each other through race, religion, sex; separate from other cultures and countries. Be we are not separate for we all have a higher heart which is a direct connection to the divine source of ourselves and of God. We are all one. All are connected. When we approach life from love, we can see our connectedness.

As we connect with one another, we either give or receive. We each need to find balance in this exchange. Sometimes that means saying “no” and sometimes that means saying “yes.” If you not sure which one you should be saying, then stop and ask yourself, ask you higher heart. Which answer truly honors your higher self? You will know the answer by how you feel. A light feeling means yes, and a heavy feeling means no. Love yourself enough to be true to yourself, true to your feelings. It is okay to say no, and it is okay to say yes – as long as – the answer brings you a feeling of being uplifted not weighed down.

My sister is a perfect example of needing to find balance. She always says yes to whatever is asked of her to do regardless of how it affects her life. She also typically says no to anyone offering to help her. This type of constant giving to others leaves her drained and unable to be open to receiving. When you constantly say no to others offers to help, then they stop offering. Likewise, the universe will stop offering.

My challenge to her and to you if this sounds familiar, is to say yes to the next person who offers you assistance of any type. That person has crossed your path at that time for a purpose! Say yes and allow the universe to bring you that purpose. Allow that purpose and its blessings into your life! Be open to choose and to allow. Once you choose blessings over burdens, you will have miracle follow miracle in your life … once you allow it into your life.

The one big caveat … you must relinquish control! You must not resist the universe by trying to control how another helps you. It is okay to let go and let it happen. I see this often too. Someone will say yes to my help and then want to tell me how to do it for them. Let go already! I learned this working as a manager. An employee cannot spread their wings and fly if I keep them on a string or in a cage. In many cases, I learned new ways of doing things by allowing others to help me and allowing them to do it their way.

How do I get there? Spirit reminds me that practice makes perfect! I need to practice every day to open my heart. To approach life from an open heart is to choose to operate or give from love and light while also allowing love and light to flow back and to be received into my heart. I have been practicing an open-heart meditation lately that has really been helping me to shift into a higher life path. So, I would like to share it with you:

Open Heart Meditation (practice for 5 – 10 minutes each day)
Get comfortable in a spot with no distractions. Close your eyes. With sincere intention pray or say the following aloud or silently: Archangel Michael be with me now. Protect me and guide me to open my heart to connect with you. Then picture in your imagination your heart with a door or a window that opens to green pastures. Keep repeating with sincere intention while seeing your heart open to the green fields in your minds eye. Stay open to allow the blessings to come in. When you feel the slightest ache in your heart you know your heart is opening. I suggest keep practicing until the feeling of the open heart becomes easier and easier for you to achieve with your intention.

Do you have any ideas on giving and receiving? Do you have any ideas on maintaining balance in this area of your life? Please share below so we can all help one another …

Return to the Awareness of All that You Are

Time Out! It is time for a personal time out! It’s interesting we can often see when someone else needs a time out to settle down, regroup, re-energize, but we often don’t see or better yet pay attention to the signs in our ourselves. If you are not feeling like being the best version of you that you can be, then maybe you need a time out. Take some time to be alone even if only for five minutes.

During this time out, actively choose to reconnect with yourself. Take a few calming breathes to reconnect with your body. Take a minute to feel your heart center open while you breathe to the love within you and around you. Remind yourself that while you have a mind, you are not your mind. You are more. You are made of more than the endless chatter of your mind. We are each born with a body, a mind, feelings, intuition, ego, and natural talents. The secret to returning to the awareness of all that we are is found in the order by which we allow ourselves to be directed.

For most of us we have been following the order: (notice how they fade in order of use)
ego leadThis order does not produce success or fulfillment in life.
In contrast, the most successful order to follow is:intuition leadDuring your time out take a minute to reflect on yourself and pick which aspect out of the six listed above has been leading you or misleading you. If needed, consciously choose again which aspect out of the six to lead you. Return to the awareness of all that you are. You are divinely created with your power rooted in love and light. The ego creates doubt, fear, and brings up your defenses. Let it go. Push the ego aside to get to your true self.

Through all my studies and research, it is our quiet inner voice, which most know as intuition, that is the voice from divine source, spirit, or our higher self. Intuition often uses our feelings to communicate with us. Learn to honor your feelings to follow your intuition. Another way to know intuition from ego is the ego is concerned with itself and comes to you in “I” statements. Intuition is concerned for you and comes to you in “you” statements. For example, while in a meeting someone is going off on something you don’t agree with, your ego might say “I don’t have to listen to this. This idiot doesn’t know what he is talking about”; while your intuition might say “You should let him speak his peace so he will be able to listen to you. You might find some common ground by listening”.

The lives we create for ourselves boil down to our thoughts, our words, and our actions. In fact, each day is a result of our thoughts, our words, and our actions. While our thoughts come from our mind, remember we are more than our minds. Is your mind being led by your ego or your divine guidance of intuition? The first step is to keep our thoughts in line with who we are and who we want to be. Why? Because our thoughts produce our words and our actions. Together thought, word, and action produce our reality. For more insight in to how thoughts, words, and actions create our reality, check out my post, You Create Your Reality.

So back to our time out …

  1. You took a minute to breathe,
  2. You took a minute to open your heart to your breath and to love all around you,
  3. You took a minute to pinpoint which of the six aspects has been leading you;
  4. Now take a minute to adjust your thoughts to be in alignment with who you want to be.
  5. Then take the last minute to voice your commitment to your alignment, give thanks for your decision and physically take a step forward.

Congratulations you just returned to the awareness of all that you are!!!

Dear Lord of All,
Be with me now,
Guide me in my thoughts to choose love, to choose light,
Open my heart to the possibilities that abound,
Open my heart to understanding that which I cannot understand,
Release any judgement, fear, doubt, or anger from within me,
Replace these with seeds of grace, love, & understanding,
Replace my darkness with your light,
Fill me with the awareness of all that I am,
I ask this in gracious gratitude for, so it is,
Amen.
