Nurture your unique gifts

As we develop conscious awareness, we learn to recognize every event on the Path of Transformation as an opportunity to evolve. The beauty in that life approach relieves you of the burden of perfection – each situation either prompts movement forward or provides greater clarity about patterns that no longer serve your growth.

Honor the gifts of your soul. You have a purpose and a unique spark of energy that you bring to the world. This healing lights, once discovered, will benefit all with whom you interact. Never doubt the power of the seeds of love and compassion that you sow.

The greatest way that you can share your gifts is to nurture yourself. When your spirit is joyful and balanced, you have more compassion, patience, insight and treasures to share. Explore ways that bring balance to your life and love yourself enough to set aside a little sacred time each day.

There will be moments when you may need to step aside and take a break from the stresses of your life situation. You may feel drawn to attend a spiritual retreat, visit a healer, spend time near the ocean, receive a massage or energy work. These moments of withdrawal can replenish your spirit.

Treat yourself with care and demonstrate compassion for your journey in the same way you would for others. Listen to the timbre of your self-talk and ensure that you are willing to receive wellness and fulfillment. Gratitude aligns us with the Divine and lights our way forward.

Today my intention is to remember that the treasures of consciousness dance their way into form. I am willing to explore the depths of possibility.

Breaking the pattern of negative expectations

You are stronger than you know. In every moment you are creating the events of your experience and discovering the power of your thoughts and beliefs. Become more conscious of the words you use. Limiting things, even spoken in jest, send ripples of energy throughout the Universe. Many people have developed the habit of expecting the worst and are completely unconscious of the limiting statements they make throughout the day… I’ll never get this! He won’t change. This is the way it’s always been.

These sweeping negative statements block the flow of all energy – the first limits the self, the second limits the growth of others and the last limits the natural evolution of our collective consciousness. Everything makes a difference and all change begins within.

Strength and confidence do not come from stubbornness. Rather, they are an expression of a conscious choice to simply live aligned with your own truth. This peaceful balance provides a base that remains strong even through the opposition you may encounter. The wisdom of your heart will lead you to discover your courage.

Today my intention is to imagine the life of my dreams and live it now.

Experiencing transformation through conscious acts of kindness

When we give from the heart, we are transformed. Acts of compassion, service, love and kindness are gifts of energy that immediate joy when we are not attached to the outcome. The ego (subtle teacher that it is) won’t often say, “I don’t want to be kind!” knowing that statement isn’t likely to make it through the spiritual seekers filter. Rather, it will find ways to procrastinate until tomorrow… and tomorrow never comes. When your soul prompts you to action, choose immediate acts of love.

We have chosen the human experience ultimately for the purpose of living consciously. Passion arises from decisiveness, commitment and involvement; otherwise one remains a spectator, living on the sidelines. This authentic way of living can easily be demonstrated by the smallest of actions. Compounded daily, the cumulative effect is a joyful existence which comes from bringing an unprotected heart to every interaction.

Remember that the things we see and experience on the physical plane are a small percentage of what is happening on a grader scale. The present moment will provide whatever is needed for your growth and these gifts will make themselves known at the perfect time. Be patient and trust and give from the heart. Grace brings revelation, opportunity and resolution.

Today my intention is to be a living, loving, joyous expression of life.

Embracing change

In those process moments when we stand on the threshold between the known and the unknown, we often consciously recognize that something has been completed in our lives. Whether the change comes through work, relationships, inner growth, the home or an aspect of ego-identity, it is time to let go. Whenever we choose to surrender and release, it creates the space in which something new can be experienced. Something greater awaits and new level are ready to be explored. Sadness ensues only when we cling to those things that no longer serve our growth, thus blocking our advancement forward on the Path of Transformation.

See these changes as part of your liberation. All drama arises when we fight what is. In acceptance, we become one with the Divine and walk forward in faith. Part of the human experience is to fear the unknown – the ego may say, “I’m scared” or “What if I get hurt?” Remember that you have already successfully walked into the unknown many times while experiencing the rites of passage on the journey from infancy to adulthood. In spire of the ego’s story that change is hard or something to fear, you are a master in the process of awakening and already quite skilled in navigating through the new experiences of your life.

You may be called upon now to share your knowledge and your gifts. Now is the opportunity to pass along the wisdom you have gleaned, giving of your love and laughter without attachment to outcomes. In that sharing, true abundance is discovered.

Today my intention is to bless the old and welcome the new with an open heart.


Imbalance and healing

All states of imbalance are chosen for their properties of healing and growth, and ultimately all healing comes from within. Some states of imbalance are chosen specifically for their experience or to complete a karma and are not healable until the appropriate time. Others are healable the moment you grasp the lesson and gone in the twinkling of an eye.

imbalances can be experienced emotionally, intellectually, energetically or physically and are deeply influenced by your thoughts and expectations. Healing is something that will elude you until  you consciously choose to accept it.

Everything on the planet has healing value and it’s important to explore how your energy will respond to your eating habits, various plants, minerals, wind, water, earth, flowers, scents, vortexes or power sports, colors or vibration. The powers of the planet are increased when we add our energy and intention to them.

As we move to heal old wounds, release outmoded patterns and step into the most vibrant and positive aspects of our soul’s expression, we create a space in which healing can occur. When you heal your unique self karma (the repeating pattern you’ve chosen as a primary challenge in this life), you stop creating the imbalance associated with that lesson. Then you experience life differently and find ways to create balance that are more joyful and relaxing because they are approached in a conscious manner.

Today my intention is to allow life to flow to me with ease and grace.

Life is our reflection

In any given moment you can ask yourself, “How can I bring love to this situation?” This constant flow of conscious response allow you to realize how much you contribute to the way your life unfold.

When things are going well, your choice to demonstrate love will likely take the situation to the next level of consciousness. During a challenge, love may prompt you to be more altruistic, patient, compassionate, take action, wait, listen, accept, rejoice, pray, hug, support, reach out, let go or remind yourself that you are loved.

Love has nothing to do with desire or neediness, only giving. It is a powerful flow of energy that attaches to nothing but resides openly within the present moment. It does not fluctuate based upon events because it isn’t dependent upon external factors. It has the capacity to create dramatic change due to the purity of the energy.

When we rise above the limiting perceptions of the personality and seek wholeness from a global perspective, barriers dissolve. We consistently find ways to support and reframe events in order to bring our perception to the highest level possible.

Ways to facilitate the lessons of unconditional love and acceptance:

  • Trust in your own journey and insights
  • Be ruthlessly honest with yourself
  • Realize that everyone is right where they need to be and accept and honor their path
  • Be responsible for your own joy
  • Realize how powerful you are and choose your thoughts and actions accordingly
  • Rise above fear
  • Truly experience surrender in order to discover its power and control within any given situation
  • Humility

Love isn’t fully possible until you love and accept yourself. Otherwise, we are simply projecting our dysfunction only whomever and whatever is available. Each moment provides an opportunity to seek and strengthen your ability to refine this empowering attribute within your experience.

Today my intention is to remember that the only thing I control is my response to life. I choose to live in the vibration of love.

Power verses Force

The higher your frequency, the more power you have. There will always be moments when we find ourselves immersed within frustrating situations, triggered by family members or feeling unfulfilled in a career. The moment you recognize the imbalance, pause and go within. Consider the energy that you are bringing to the situation and whether or not you feel heard.

Whenever someone is vibrating under the level of Awakening, they begin to drain those around them and convince themselves that force is required in order to make a difference. The spiritual seeker understands that the higher they can get their vibrational frequency, the more power they have and the easier things become.

For this reason, you will feel more empowered each time you pause, breathe and see how centered you can get yourself prior to taking action. The higher vibrations come from the upper chakra centers (notice that the green of the heart chakra is activated at the level of Courage). All relationships benefit greatly when we utilize the high frequency of the Celtic Vows of Friendship:

  • I honor your path
  • I bring an unprotected heart to our meeting place
  • I drink from your well
  • I hold no cherished outcome
  • I will not negotiate by withholding
  • I am not subject to disappointment

Remember, nothing is more important than your state of consciousness. If you cannot function in the present moment from a space of joy, enthusiasm or at the very least, acceptance, stop and consider that you may be missing a lesson. It’s important that we utilize each moment and get the most out of our time here.

You have much to offer and you make an incredible difference in the lives of those around you when you choose to step out of the drama and into a space of true empowerment.

Today my intention is to be conscious of the energy I bring to each moment. Everyone and everything is my teacher.

Discovering Oneness in a world of difference

To truly awaken is to recognize Oneness within a world of difference. The paradox of higher consciousness allows us to see both aspects of our experience – your unique expression of the Divine and the commonality of the human journey of awakening.

The gifts we discover through cultivating the art of compassion benefit all life. We begin to choose differently, we honor one another’s path, we learn to rise above the limitation of fear and most importantly, we strive for wholeness. This is the moment of transformation. Anytime the mechanisms of the mind seem to take over, seek joy within the present moment. Even the act of consciously sipping water can bring you back to center.

Your energy can nourish and support the energy of others when you hold the high vibration of love in your heart. We call this “holding space” and, when done consciously in any given situation, creates the space in which a transformation can occur.

When old patterns are finally released it can be quite a challenge for the spiritual seeker. The energetic shift sends ripples throughout all levels to the core of being as one goes through the process of releasing the struggle and continuing onward on the Path of Transformation. It is in those moments that others need the loving balance and higher perspective that you have to offer. Never doubt the impact you make in the lives of others.

Today my intention is to reside in the vibration of Love or above…

Your purpose is to awaken

Universal interconnectedness binds us to one another. Each and every thought, word and action sends ripples of energy throughout the Universe – some strong, some subtle – and what harms one, harms all. What heals one, heals all.

When we live aligned with our soul’s purpose, we have a greater ability to access the grace and harmony which underlies all things. There are two aspects to your purpose and life mission. Your inner purpose is to awaken. Your outer purpose may change throughout your incarnation on the planet, but it ultimately supports your inner purpose. There are many, many vehicles of healing.

The Buddha said, “It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours; it cannot be taken from you, not by angels or demons, heaven or hell.” This inner state of consciousness cannot be shaken by events or other people. Yes, the idea of awakening seems nebulous to many (I can hear the ego saying, “Yes, but what does that mean??) but it is this beautiful intangibility that creates a true sense of empowerment. The infinite cannot be described with mere words, it must be lived fully from the heart.

So allow your outer purpose to shift and change in whatever way best serves your spiritual growth. Apparent losses and challenges are simply part of the game of awakening in which we are all engaged. Whether someone is consciously seeking awareness or not, their soul is still propelling them forward in the most appropriate way for the unfoldment of their journey. As we tend to our own awakening, this loving energy impacts everything and everyone around us.

Today my intention is to seek beauty, be Compassion and live fully within the power of Now.

Breaking free of old patterns through self awareness

The world in which you live is one of your ow creation. We project our thoughts and beliefs onto every situation and weave our stories, fears and desires throughout every aspect of our lives.

Pay attention to the repeating patterns of your life. There you will discover that which your soul longs to heal. All transformation begins within. When you feel angry with someone, recognize that it is simply anger at yourself which is being projected outward onto the most accessible target. The awakening master understands this aspect of the journey and simply chooses to increase their awareness, own their own stuff and take responsiblity for creating change through personal growth and evolution.

Everyone has moments of deep connection and stillness and yet others where we may still miss the mark. Awareness heals. It’s not helpful to create another story out of a perceived mistake (thereby adding another layer of energy to an old pattern) but to remain the observer and consciously shift whenever possible.

Quietly notice the various beliefs that have been put into place in our society. The opposing viewpoints and beliefs, opinions and prejudice are all ego-driven distractions that keep us so engaged in conflict with one another that we forget the power of going within to heal.

In every moment, you are evolving as you walk the Path of Transformation. The filters and veils which covered the infinite beauty of your soul are one by one being washed away. As you grow and become more spiritually aware your life situation will transform, thus reflecting the change.

It’s important to periodically detox – physically, mentally and emotionally. Be kind to yourself throughout these changes and honor the path of your awakening. As you grow, you’ll discover that you can handle any situation with grace, trust, joy and ease, knowing that you are right where you need to be.

Today my intention is to trust my inner wisdom.
