The Mystery

Learn how to be at peace in the midst of the mystery and understand that your exploration into spirituality is unique. When playing in the realm of the infinite, explanations cease to have any meaning. Life-changing experiences are so layered in nuance that we often lessen their impact with our words. Simply choose to be fully present in each moment. Rather than describing your journey, embody its magic and wonder within your daily interactions.

The unknown holds infinite possibility. When we seek to understand every piece of the workings of the world around us, we bring limitation into the equation. In a universe filled with limitless potential, it’s important to remember that no matter how much we have learned, we are always at the beginning.

There is much more to life than meets the eye. Energy connects us all and we are constantly setting new things into motion – that is the joy and beauty of evolution. Nothing is stagnant, even when that appears to be the case.

If you choose to experience life with childlike wonder, something miraculous begins to unfold. It brings a little magic into your experience and you may discover the hidden language of the Divine.

Daily Miracles

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
~Albert Einstein~

New perceptions expand our interpretation of life. Each time we consciously choose to bear witness to the miracles that unfold,we experience the beauty of awakening in motion. When we seek authentic joy in the sacred space of daily life, a space opens… and in this space, miracles are possible.

Honor the sacredness of the moment by recognizing it within everyone and everything you encounter. This approach of purposeful respect creates a sense of Oneness and completion. Observe life as it unfolds in it’s majestic splendor – without fanfare – and hear the whispers of love that call us home.

My healing work begins with this silent invocation: Sacred Mother, I come in honor of this person, this space, this moment as sacred. Thank you for the opportunity to be of service. What would your daily interactions be like if you chose to bring this attitude of reverence to each situation? You are the master of your own experience. Imagine a life filled with miracles, loving experiences, simple pleasures and the freedom to embrace life.

Gratitude

“When gratitude becomes an essential foundation in our lives, miracles start to appear everywhere.”

~Emmanuel Dagher~

Heartfelt gratitude draws in even more for which you can be grateful, thus creating an infinite cycle of abundance.

It seems that many people forget that life is sacred. They create an existence that is filled with drudgery and conflict. For them, the world feels like an unsafe place. This is the high cost of unconsciousness.
Those who have awakened understand that there is no need to postpone their joy. They can see the beauty in every situation and are deeply immersed within the Now. They do not wait for everything to fall into place before they dance in celebration of life.
With each expression of gratitude, we send purposeful energy outward. It gathers momentum, expands exponentially and returns in miraculous ways. You may discover the art of being grateful for something that has yet to occur as if it is already solid and present in your experience. This joyful, powerful visualization becomes your reality.
You can choose to create a space filled with infinite possibility. As you express gratitude for the little things, you step into a world filled with wonder and delight.

The Nature of Change

Something beautiful happens when we embark upon the winds of change. Fresh experiences require greater attention and awareness and break us free from habitual patterns. In the process of discovery, we can explore the magic of new beginnings.

It’s helpful to have a blend of consistent practice and mindful exploration. As you cultivate the understanding that all things work toward your highest good, it’s easier to flow with change when it occurs. The experiences of your life have already shown the depths of your strength, planted seeds for growth and pivoted your direction, when required.

Reside in the fullness of what is. You are consistently engaged in the process of transformation and it’s important to release that which no longer serves your growth. Clinging to the knowns of the past will create discomfort.

When going through a painful transition, losing a loved one or facing uncertainty, the ego will respond through the intellect of the mind saying, “Stop, you are standing on the abyss, it’s not safe, we don’t know what awaits.” Conversely, the soul asks you to trust that you are supported. By gathering your courage and taking one more conscious step forward, you enter the realms of infinite possibility where miracles dwell.

 

Appreciate the Little Things

“Find magic in the little things, and the big things you always expected will start to show up.” ~Isa Zapata~

Life offers us many choices. The lighter you become, the higher your vibration and the more easily you’ll align yourself with the Divine. We can choose to bring a sense of love, light and laughter to our experience.

Granted, there will certainly be moments that awaken compassion and empathy, frustration that (hopefully) leads to a shift in perception, and the sadness which comes from losing a loved one… that’s part of the human experience. But through it all, our ability to realign with joy is a powerful way to shine the light of consciousness in times of darkness.
Misery, struggle, hard work without appreciation and drudgery are all aspects of perceptions we inherited along the journey of awakening. They have no value except as teachers. Feel what needs to be felt, own your response to the present moment, but do remember to look beyond it to the truth of existence, which is to live vibrantly, filled with gratitude, empowered, passionate and joyful.

Miracles in the Stillness

“To understand the immeasurable, the mind must be extraordinarily quiet, still.”
~J. Krishnamurti~
Within the stillness lies unlimited possibility. When we can quiet the ravages of the mind, we discover that the present moment is filled with countless little gifts. Enter the gap by being very gentle, very receptive. Awareness seeks to experience itself through you.
Gaze at the clouds as they move across the sky. Notice how the shadows change. Hear the calls of birds in flight. The canvas of life is constantly in motion, each movement effortlessly creating a new work of art to appreciate. Even as I write these words, I find myself enjoying the candlelight as it flickers on my altar of friendship.
By bringing a gentle awareness into the Now, you will be more able to recognize the sacred in everyone and everything. As you continue to awaken, the veils of illusion which have clouded your perception begin to separate and ultimately dissolve into faint memory. The time has come to step into awareness of your true nature and walk forward with wonder.At the deepest core of our being we are the observers, witnesses of the miracle of existence. From this space of awareness we can engage with the spark of life and love that resides within us.

A World Filled With Wonder

“Look at everything always as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time: Thus is your time on earth filled with glory.”
~Betty Smith~

We live in a world filled with wonder. Life is in a constant state of transformation that we can choose to embrace and appreciate as it is in the present moment. Consciousness seeks expression through our experience of the physical plane and when we really pay attention, everything becomes a teacher.
Your perception dictates how you will respond to life. For those who see it as a burden, it becomes one… repetitive, hard, heavy and filled with sorrow.

Conversely, those who view each moment as an adventure are open to new experiences. They live from the heart, meeting new people and exploring the unfamiliar. Even challenges are transformed into something of incredible value. These vibrant souls are the trailblazers of this world. Their courage inspires others to awaken to their own potential.

Let your life be your message. Consciously set intentions and walk forward confidently in the direction of your dreams. Let the Universe surprise you along the way by leaving space for miracles to unfold.

Embrace the Now

“Observe the wonders as they occur around you. Don’t claim them. Feel the artistry moving through and be silent.”
~Rumi~

The present moment is filled with countless miracles. When you truly immerse yourself within the Now, life becomes sacred. Everything is a reflection of the light of the Divine, adding to the mystery and the perfection of your experience. With each breath, you become one with life.

The mental patterns and frustrations of our humanness are nothing more than outmoded conditioning. The spiritual seeker breaks free from desire and societal imprinting and chooses to live purposely at a higher level of consciousness. This is the light that awakens the light in others.

When we seek only to learn from and love one another, something miraculous occurs… there is an effortless blending of energies that creates something entirely different. And from this new place of compassion, insight and experience a world of infinite potential opens and we can step through the doorway with an open heart.

Paradox, Humor, Change

“Life has three rules: Paradox, Humor, and Change.
– Paradox: Life is a mystery; don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.
– Humor: Keep a sense of humor, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure
– Change: Know that nothing ever stays the same.”
~Dan Millman~

It can take great courage to learn to trust your inner wisdom. Teachers and circumstances point the way to the inner awareness, but until one is willing to see, there it patiently waits. Trust yourself and be open to the potential that joy brings. No matter what you encounter, operate from a space of truth and integrity. Give yourself permission to reside within the paradox without dissecting or analyzing it.

Consciously practice moving quickly to acceptance instead of getting lost within the why. When we allow our experiences to be a celebration, we can live joyfully within life’s mystery while remaining grateful for the love, lessons and laughter.

Miracles happen with you create space and allow the divine to surprise you. New people, changes in perception and conscious interactions can alter your life in amazing ways. The soul longs for growth, for dramatic expansion. There is nothing to fear but fear itself.

Inspiration

“I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion–and where it isn’t, that’s where my work lies.”
~Ram Dass~
As we awaken, we are drawn to teachers that reflect the qualities we would like to refine in ourselves. Notice those who inspire you and consider the fact that that they are merely reflections of you. Life functions as a mirror – things that trigger us are the aspects to which we would rather turn a blind eye; however, reflections also show us the best of who we are.
Consciously spend some time being observant today. Notice what inspires you. Conversely, notice what frustrates you and then simply turn your attention inward. Celebrate how far you have come and quietly do you work around any reactivity that arises.
Each of us is a master engaged in the art of awakening. Be gentle with your own process and embody attributes that lift your spirit into realms of infinite possibility. True wisdom is the conscious awareness of how little we know. With humility we can transform the mundane into the miraculous.
