We are more than we think we are, for we are made in God’s image. We are beings of the light. The issue is we have not accepted our power, our potential. We have been and are being programmed in this world to have the perception this is all there is, this is all we can do, and this is all we can have in this life. But it is not true. We each have within us the power to be all we ever imagined we could be. We are unlimited light beings created to co-create with our God a beautiful world of light and love.
Why do we not see this in ourselves? Because we have been programed since birth with limiting beliefs, rules, laws, religion, and government to be kept in the dark of our true source of power. That power is our divine light source within us and it is a part of us just like our heart or our brain. Many are beginning to wake up to the realization that we are more than we had thought or were taught, myself included. Throughout my life I have had this inner knowing there was more. I would begin to explore this calling many times only to be distracted by another world event or another religious teaching. Each time I would slip back into the matrix of the world as we know it. But within the past couple of years, I have been able to explore deeper within myself to find the source of power which so many don’t want me to find. It is my divine light source otherwise known as my soul or my spirit or my higher self.
Interestingly enough, my journey within was spurred again without distraction after being harassed and slandered by my employer the Catholic Church. After eight years of dedicated service along with an extremely successful track record in parish management, a sacrificial lamb was needed to appease a small group of loud problem parents from the parish school. Ironically, I had joked it was my crucifixion unbeknownst to me that it really would be. The small crowd of parents didn’t like the changes being implemented to make them accountable for the cost of tuition and the state of the school. They expected the church to pay for their children’s education and to run the school without the need to adhere to any outside regulations. I became the target for their anger at being called out for their actions. They began a smear campaign against me with the diocese demanding action. They lied, they edited video, they wrote letters. Wow – now that I think about it, it reminds me of mainstream media with their one-sided story telling. Long story short, it was determined by the diocese that I was a problem and needed to go away for them to appease the parents and to remain the supreme church authority. After my duties were cut and my name slandered, I quit. I saw first-hand from eight years of church management the control the church uses over its parishioners to keep them in the dark and to keep them in their matrix. Power, greed, abuse – yes it does all exist within the catholic church. Although I believe these problems also exist in other religious denominations, in our government, in our world. I cover a few of these in the posts: Out of the Shadows, Into the Light; Distortion & Illusion; and Light Overcomes Dark.
After my church harassment experience, I became disillusioned with the religious illusion which began my purposeful journey to find my power by following the light that called from within me. I can tell you that after two years of actively following the path of light from within that I am happier than ever with more confidence and freedom to shine my light a little brighter each day. I am so grateful and thankful for all this journey has taught me and continues to teach me. I want to share with you some of my favorites from my journey to date in hopes they may inspire you to follow your path of light within…
Here are a some of my Favorite Books:
Awaken The Spirit Within by Rebecca Rosen –
Love, love, love this book!!! It offers so much insight into the spirit world, the physical world along with connecting religious beliefs.
Conversations with God Book 1 by Neale Donald Walsch –
Spirit guided me to this book just after it was released which was back in 1995. It resonated with me to my core. Then another distraction in life took me down the rabbit hole back into the matrix of our programmed world. However, the insights gained from this book have come back to me time and time again.
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra –
Simple quick read with very profound insight into our world and the natural laws or universal laws that govern it.
Channeling the Guides and Angels of Light by Melanie Beckler –
I discovered Melanie first on Pinterest then on YouTube. I subscribe to her blog and her videos. This book contains meditations channeled from the spirit world to guide us in understanding the light and the power within us which connects to source otherwise known as God. Her style is simple, basic, and down to earth.
Everyday A Friday and Think Better, Live Better by Joel Osteen –
These are Christian based books for living your purpose in life. Simple inspiring reads. For some reason I don’t like to view or listen to Joel Osteen, but I love his positive writing. I learned from Joel to bloom where I am planted – no matter where it is!
Imagine Big by Terry Savelle Foy –
Terry is another Christian writer who I discovered a year ago on YouTube. She is so motivating and inspirational to follow the dreams inside you because God put them there for a reason. She gives a lot of success tips and tricks as she goes along.
Here are a Few of my Favorite Videos: (Sometimes I listen to the videos while driving since I don’t always have the time to sit to watch and listen. More important to listen than to watch these.)
Crash Course of Spirituality by Mindvalley
47 minute video on thinking outside spiritual and religious paradigms
Dr. Michael Beckwith with Oprah Super Soul Conversation
30 minute podcast on the power within each of us along with spiritual discovery
Exploring the Event by Collective Evolution
48 minute video exploring from a reason and logic stance the spiritual event that so many have been talking about for a few years but has not happened and how looking through a different lens helps bring clarity to the process.
Conscious Deprogramming by Collective Evolution
7 minute video which is the third part to a four-part series, but I think this is the best summary to cover the four parts. I think Collective Evolution is perfect for the skeptic. Sometimes I am a skeptic looking for more facts to help me understand a concept or event. I have found Collective Evolution to be a neutral lens to look at deeper subjects.
It is important to remember you have the do the work. We can’t just “think” it. We have to “be” it, if we want things to change. Lastly, I would like to share with you another favorite of mine from Marianne Williamson’s book “A Return to Love”…
