I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.
Within you, there are infinite treasures that await discovery.
Every soul is precious and unique. When you recognize and respond to positive characteristics in others, realize that you have those same qualities within you. Everything you experience is a reflection of your state of consciousness.
Should you encounter moments of self-doubt, purposefully consider those you admire and write down the qualities that inspire you. Read books that awaken your heart. Your soul will respond to similar energies and these gentle reminders can reignite self-awareness.
Nothing is missing. Nothing is broken. It’s time to see through the clouds of mind-made illusion and embrace your current expression of the Divine. Treat yourself with love and let your life be a celebration of your unique journey.
Often it seems there are an amazing number of synchronistic occurrences that have to fall into place in order for two souls to cross paths. Then, recognizing a kindred spirit – or perhaps a karmic contract – they choose to embark upon a segment of the journey together.
Be grateful for those who are kind enough to bring laughter and support into your world. These infinite soul connections create an energy and harmony that creates the soundtrack of your life. I often visualize them as a symphony – every instrument is vital and important, and while the music continues if someone is missing, the energy shifts significantly. The nuances of the whole allow greater depth of experience.
It’s important to accept encouragement from others as you walk the path of transformation. Ultimately, the momentum of change is created from within; however, the supporting characters in your life experience provide a springboard of discovery, inspiration, new opportunities and expanded perception. The extent to which you are willing to be supported is an indication of your self-love.
“The greatest gift that you can give others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance. ”
Release any thoughts of judgment about friends, family, strangers, those in the spotlight or hidden behind the scenes. This can be accomplished by seeing everyone as a spark of the Divine with the knowledge that each of us plays a vital role in the awakening consciousness of the planet.
Eliminate labels from your experience and choose to interact with each person from a place of acceptance, compassion and kindness. This creates a space in which a transformation can occur.
When people live trapped by their own opinions, judgments and expectations, they block the flow of love. Opinions and labels set up limitation of others and of ourselves because they dictate current behavior based upon a set of previous rules and restrictions.
Your journey of consciousness can help you to reconnect with the healing energy of mother earth. There are minor chakras located on the soles of the feet. Each morning, visualize them opening to receive grace, direction, support and balance as you go about your day. As a child of light, know that you are loved, guided and protected each and every step of the way.
Experiences awaken our ability to discover the multi-layered facets of existence. Each is a stepping stone to be utilized while creating a joyful, empowered life. The expansion of awareness begins with gratitude and gentleness. All that you see is a spark of the Divine expressing itself in physical form. Recognizing and honoring the sacredness of all life awakens the sacredness within you.
Happiness is a choice. So is misery.
Each of us is responsible for our own joy; therefore, change begins with consciously changing our thoughts – choosing happiness again and again until it becomes our natural response to daily events. All transformation begins within.
Life will provide ample opportunities to practice acceptance, forgiveness and compassion. The process of growth is both deeply personal and collective. Your unique journey is one of learning mastery and those who grace your life play the roles required for your awakening.
When you choose thoughts that create empowerment and peacefulness, nothing has the power to take your happiness away. Even in the midst of tremendous challenge, there will be a groundedness of spirit that is unshakable.
Mastery is choosing to respond to life rather than being reactive to it. Observe your thoughts. Make choices that support your joy and share your light whenever possible. It is always possible.
Make a commitment to yourself to be a source of peace and compassion. It’s interesting to watch our collective exploration into the dark tunnels of ego and opinion. With every interaction, purchase, news story or rumor, many feel the need to participate in voicing their perception, ultimately seeking others who will validate their point of view.
Clashing viewpoints lead to escalation when those involved insist that their interpretation is accurate. Throughout combative interactions, the ego generates negative energy to feed upon until the personality is taken over by the pain-body. All conflict in the world is the result of individual unconsciousness that becomes collective.
Spiritual seekers must guard against getting pulled into situations that lower their vibration. Only share your viewpoint when it can be expressed without judgment or blame and you have absolutely no attachment to the outcome.
When we interact with love, compassion, detachment and kindness, we have an opportunity to plant seeds that may grow. Your loving presence may create a space in which a transformation can occur.
