How we weave the future golden

The Divine wishes to support you in living your heart’s truth. Unseen angels, spirit guides, healing masters and helpers celebrate your awakening and conspire to bring you everything that you need in order to live a life of joy.

Worthiness, or the lack of it, determines whether or not we will accept these gifts or even recognize them when they come our way. No matter what the situation, you can choose to create peace within your experience. If you find that you are immersed in pain, observe the energy you are weaving with your thoughts and actions and do your best to consciously shift yourself into a space of acceptance.

In each moment we are weaving the tapestry of tomorrow. Can you picture a life filled with a constant flow of joyous celebration? When we practice gratitude, we develop the ability to seek beauty within all things. This perception and loving energy then becomes the foundation for all our subsequent experiences.

Your joy acts like a magnet, dear one, drawing in the circumstances, knowledge, opportunities and people who increase your store of happiness. Too many forget that we create our perception of reality and therefore, have the ability to change it when necessary. Be joyous first – don’t wait for the circumstances of a particular situation to fall into place before you can feel peaceful. This is the moment hat you can reclaim your power… the power of mastering oneself in the Now.

Today my intention is to remember that life unfolds in the most surprising and beautiful ways. I am willing to accept a miracle.

Sharing without expectation

Authentic communication helps us to be more open-minded, tolerant and compassionate. It’s important to share our wisdom and experience without expectation. Within the concept that all paths are sacred, we can turn to one another for new perceptions and seek to expand our own experience by discovering true Wholeness within the contrasts of our life journeys.

There is no need to defend your point of view when attacked. Defense is a product of the ego and directs all the energy within the conversation to a determination of right vs wrong rather than sharing. The “agree to disagree” approach still doesn’t quite reach the concept of knowing that all paths are sacred and everyone walks their own Path of Transformation in the process of their souls awakening, but it’s closer than demanding someone adopt our point of view.

Eventually, we discover that it doesn’t matter what road one chooses. The culmination of many lifetimes of experience will always end in enlightenment and we may be better served by honoring others as our teachers, instead of standing in judgment.

True compassion comes only through higher consciousness. Understanding and love transcend all levels of existence, and that is the greatest gift that you can offer those who grace your life with their presence.

Today my intention is to remember to create a space in which transformation can occur – both in myself and others.

Honor the journey as sacred

The journey is a sacred place and by honoring the present moment,we consciously move through the beautiful landscape of our souls awakening. Whenever you enter periods of movement and change, allow yourself to feel a sense of adventure and growth. This is your pilgrimage.

Be willing to accept and embrace the new. This attitude of openness and acceptance invites new opportunities, friends and experiences into our lives.

Let yourself be more receptive now for joy is waiting to be experienced. There is no way to force meditation or healing of the heart chakra – it is the natural flow of your energy as you mature and learn to rest in your inner silence.

It has been said that one must lose all to learn how to be simple. We choose to fill our lives with people, stuff, ambitions and desires in order to stay busy and distracted. The Universe will often create a space for us to discover the joys of simplicity; however, one doesn’t have to wait for all to be lost – we can simply lose our attachment.

There is guidance available for you when you choose to listen to the whispers of your heart. The more you move into love and balance, the more receptive you’ll be… and your life will become radiant with blessings. This is your birthright, a gift that has awaited you since the moment you first set foot on this planet. Will you choose to embrace the journey?

Today my intention is to honor the journey as sacred. There are always new levels and experiences to discover.

The light of awareness

Everything that you encounter is meant to increase your spiritual awareness. All too often we get caught up in the tapestry of our existence; the weaving of emotion, experience, colors and textures, and forget our true purpose… to awaken. Yet, whether we are conscious of it or not, our higher Self guides us along the Path of Transformation from one interaction to the next seeking out those things that spark the light of awareness from within.

The knowledge you have received so far on your journey is something which will never leave you. These beautiful facets of understanding are now encoded within your energy, your DNA and the blueprint of your soul, accessible for the lifetimes to come.

Joyousness accompanies new energy as light emerges from within. There is new clarity which may call upon you to change old patterns, goals or ambitions… for that which you seek can only be found within. Gladly give up the old way of being knowing that you have outgrown it and allow yourself a moment to be still, empty and ready to receive.

The more Light you have, the better you can see what is trivial and outmoded in your conditioning.

Today my intention is to remember that all things work toward my highest good. I am on a journey of awakening.

Listen to the messages from your body

True healing requires acknowledging and experiencing the very distress that arises when we hold to cherished outcomes or give away our energy to others. Clinging creates pain and tension in the body, which in turn is an indicator of the pain or imbalance carried in the energetic field.

Your physical body is always in communication with you and every cell is filled with Divine Intelligence. It is a mirror of our inner thoughts and beliefs and responds to what we say and do.

I once allowed a client to drain my energy. This person called me on a daily basis (sometimes paying, sometimes not) and I failed to clearly define boundaries in our communication and interactions. This went on for a few months until I found myself dreading each time the phone rang (sign number one and I was blind to it). Then, while walking, I hurt of right knee and began to experience a great deal of pain. Next, I hurt my right shoulder working out and still tried to “hide” it as pain now radiated all down the right side of the body (sign number two, and my ego was still unwilling to let me see the truth). I continued to function day by day, off-balance, uncomfortable and now ego-driven since “spiritual healers don’t let themselves get so far off-balance”.

Finally, the Universe found a way to get my to acknowledge what my body was attempting to bring to my attention. Uncharacteristically, my husband decided to have me help him stretch prior to a workout. He asked me to squat down and placed his outstretched leg out, with his foot on my right shoulder and said, “Now, stand up really slowly.” Of course, I was too weak to move at all. Finally I had to admit out loud that I had hurt myself and couldn’t do what he wanted.

All at once the realization hit – the right side of the body represent the energy that we give out to others and also can represent the men in our lives. In my case, it was a combination of the two. Immediately, I began to set things right in the physical world. I took the time to write a fact-based email to the person in question outlining how much we had spoken, how much he had been charged, and explained that we needed to change how we interact going forward in order for me to assist him in the healthiest way possible. I took full responsiblity for creating the situation, and I also took full responsiblity for correcting it.

My pain was gone within three days. That particular person chose another psychic (I hope!), and now I see him as the amazing teacher that he was. Learning how to define boundaries is a very important lesson – one that we continue to practice. Often we give away our energy, seemingly for altruistic reasons, but the body will let us know when we aren’t seeing clearly.

Louise Hay’s book “You Can Heal Your Life” is a great resource for deciphering the messages of the body. Like any other resource, it can point you in the right direction and ultimately, you can find your own truth and create healing where needed.

Today my intention is to be grateful for the constant flow of communication and love from the Universe. Everyone and everything is my teacher.

Your unique Path of Transformation

Ultimately, each of walks our own unique Path of Transformation alone. While we interact with one another, seek knowledge and new perceptions and learn from the valuable reflection that show us the way, its important to allow your path to be yours – not one that you’ve read about and are emulating and certainly not one built from societal or parental expectations.

Once you become aware of this, you might be surprised at the freedom of it. The life experience is a blank slate that is really very simple. We need to learn to live in accordance with the unknown and become conscious in each and every moment of what we are choosing to create.

Awareness enhances the beauty, passion and intensity within you. It releases you from the entrapment of the ego – possessiveness, jealously, greed and fear – and each moment strengthens your knowledge of the connection between you and the Divine. This movement toward wholeness is the natural state of your being. Though we may feel lost at times, there it waits within the stillness of your heart.

Be kind to one another. Find ways to show love, to serve and be compassionate. You cannot walk in the light of love and remain unchanged. But if you wait… the ego will find reasons to put off these acts of kindness, postponing the inevitable outpouring of love (and the resulting self-transformation) that wants to flow through you. Authentic acts of kindness, without attachment to outcomes, raise the energy of all those involved. Don’t wait! Be love.

Today my intention is to be quick to do good.

Awareness and the freedom of joy

Awareness transforms everything. Just go into total openness and see… become the watcher and observe without judgment. Once we become aware of the habitual way that unconsciousness works, we begin to see that we have alternatives. Think of the terms we use to describe the advancement of the soul – enlightenment, awareness, awakening, mindfulness, consciousness – we are simply waking from the dream, and seeing clearly, dissolve it completely.

Conversely, we describe those who have yet to awaken as being asleep, unconscious, ignorant or unevolved. The only difference between the two is the level of awareness.

Seek to teach those around you through your example. More powerful than any words, a life of peace and empowerment cuts through the darkness like a beacon that lights the night.

Our world is a dream, ever-changing, fluctuating, every moment completely new. Clinging brings pain. Enjoy the transformation in which you are immersed and all that surprises it brings.

Realize that consciousness has little to do with belief. It is the very personal awareness that comes from knowing and living your truth. Many seek to cover their ignorance with specific beliefs, and hide in the safety of repeating what they have been taught without truly learning the freedom of empowerment.

The spiritual seeker is often seen as a rebel. We remain constantly engaged in the art of observation, acceptance, and broadening perception. This is the gift you share with the world. Should you experience pain along your journey, observe what you are clinging to and realize that you can consciously choose the joy that acceptance brings.

Today my intention is to hold no cherished outcome. I am not subject to disappointment.

Being grateful when things aren’t working

This morning I stepped outside for a few moments of gratitude. In the darkness of pre-dawn I was greeted and serenaded by a chorus of frogs. So, I began my day by being joyful that they had found a place to reside in the midst of the drought we are experiencing.

Frog represents transformation through water and sound and in shamanic practices, their voice can call the rain. All our amphibious friends symbolize metamorphosis, and Frog inspires us to utilize the flowing qualities of emotion in order to create changes in our lives. My guides have asked me to pass along the following message: Seek that which heals the soul through tears, immerse yourself in the feelings which arise and allow them to lead the way to a new expression, intention and experience. Become the observer.

Take some time to specifically give thanks for the things that aren’t flowing perfectly (according to the ego’s demands and expectations) knowing that all is well. Sometimes we seek to accomplish particular goals and the Universe has other plans. Align with the knowledge that, as humans, we have very limited perception. You are supported and guided and if a door has closed, it is only to create a space of greater empowerment and possibility within your life.

Thousands of desires arise constantly from the mind and it can be easy to get caught in the web of wish-fulfillment. It is limited perception, thought-based desire that creates dis-ease and empty longing. Seek wholeness in this moment and see what you can experience fully with all your being. The gateway to power is the Now.

Today my intention is to trust the flow of my experiences. In the infinity of life, all is perfect, whole and complete.

Manifesting change

There is nothing to be gained from making life more difficult than it needs to be. Struggle does eventually provide insight and additional lessons; however, the pathway is traversed more quickly when we simply make the necessary changes, try new things and take one more step forward.

If you wish to manifest change within your experience it’s up to you to break out of the comfort zone you’ve created. Your soul will always attempt to meet any karmic obligations and there is great freedom in the discovery that all things work to our highest good.

When you allow the movement of the Divine to weave itself throughout your life, you may be surprised to discover how quickly problems are solved. Inspiration allows you to see more clearly and take actions which bring you into balance in mind, body and spirit.

It’s time for you to break through to a new dimension. Share your knowledge and be a living example for those around you. This moment is an opportunity to walk your talk and speak your truth with integrity. Practice compassion, be loving and witness the beauty which unfolds in your experience.

Today my intention is to walk in respect and gratitude for the many blessings of my life.

 

Chaos and breakthroughs

The challenges that we face help us to enter the unknown parts of ourselves in order to grow in peace, gain greater understanding of our skills and talents and create transformation in our lives. Honor the lessons which emerge from the darkest beginnings knowing that from the chaos, new facets are being brought to light.

Have faith in the process of your awakening. There are times when the soul simply delves into the shadow aspects of the personality to grow spiritually and move forward on the Path of Transformation. This is why noticing any judgment that arises is such a powerful practice – we see the perceived dysfunction (both within ourselves or others) as an indicator that the possibility of a breakthrough is at hand.

Our conscious awareness creates the space in which a transformation can occur. Notice the moments when you may feel triggered by others in your life, news stories, memories of the past, etc. That movement of emotion is merely capturing your attention – something new is ready to emerge.

All aspects of your spirit contain amazing beauty and there is no need to fear the process, no matter how intense it can become. You are on a journey of discovery and soon will enter the phase of rebirth where you welcome an entire new reality.

Today my intention is to bear witness to the reflections which abound, knowing that new aspects of myself are waiting to be discovered. I am willing to emerge into a state of higher consciousness, love and empowerment.
