Connect to the Wisdom Within

Connect to the Wisdom Within

Our soul is already awake; it is our mind/human-ness that is remembering. Accessing our intuition and listening to the signals provided by our physical body will assist us with connecting to the knowingness of our soul – the wisdom within.

Paulo Coelho reminds us that “Intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life.” Aristotle defined wisdom as “intuitive reason combined with scientific knowledge.”

How do we access this wisdom within?
Through meditation. By quieting the mind, so the soul can speak.

At the heart of your being lies your answer. You know who you are and what you want. ~ Laozi

Take time each day to connect with YOU, your inner self, through meditation in the manner that resonates with you personally. The act of meditation takes many forms. It can be sitting quietly in reflection, listening to a guided meditation, going for a walk or spending time outdoors in nature. The intent of meditation is to just BE and listen to the guidance you are receiving. In doing so, you are accessing the wisdom within.

Quiet your mind and let your spirit speak. What knowledge does it wish to impart on you? Who are you? Why are you here having this human life experience? What lessons are you intended to learn during this incarnation? As you pose these questions and any others, listen to what is conveyed to you through thoughts, words, feelings and impressions. Allow yourself to embrace this clarity and greater knowing of who you really are as you connect to the wisdom within.

Maximizing Energy and Minimizing Effort on this Journey

Maximizing Energy and Minimizing Effort on this Journey

My mantra for 2017 has been maximize time and energy while minimizing effort and expenses. This can also be interpreted as work smarter, not harder. This message first came to me after my husband experienced a heart attack 12/2/16, and he recognized a short time later that it would be in his best interest to discontinue what he has done work-wise since graduating high school. I encouraged him to really feel into what he enjoyed and what he was capable of doing physically. Then, we assessed the changes that could be made to achieve it. I continue to remind him to maximize his time and energy (and also not to overdo it), while also minimizing his effort and the financial aspect associated with doing business.

I’ve offered this suggestion to my daughter as she prepares to graduate from college in less than a month and attain full-time employment. I gently conveyed this message to my son since he will be relocating to a new area and returning to college in the fall to begin his quest for his juris doctorate degree after graduating college 3 years ago with an industrial engineering degree.

I’ve applied this mantra to my own work. I’ve chosen to really assess what I do and how I do it. I’ve realized that when I consciously choose to invest my time and energy wisely in whatever it may be (people, places or things), including myself, the energetic investment tends to feel easy and the end result or outcome is often effortless.

What can you maximize and minimize in your own life?

Journey of Empowerment through Self-Love

Journey of Empowerment through Self-Love

Love is a feeling, an emotion, a state of being. When you focus on loving yourself, it is empowering. Doing so isn’t selfish; it is self-love. You are worthy to receive the same love that you give out. Don’t doubt your ability to love and to be loved.

According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of self-love is the “regard for one’s own well-being and happiness.”

Practicing self-love is a choice. It is not the result of achieving this or attaining that. There is nothing to wait for or anyone to wait on. Self-love is not a destination; it’s a journey.

In his book, Whatever Arises, Love That, Matt Kahn refers to “the new paradigm of spirituality as a love revolution that begins with you,” which reminds us that self-love is essential as the basic foundation on which we build a happy and abundant life.

What is the Difference between Victimhood and Empowerment?

According to Matt, “In victimhood, you hold yourself emotionally hostage while waiting for others to tell you what they may not be able to say. Until they do, you remain at odds with life, blaming those who haven’t spoken the words you need to hear as the reason for your suffering.

On the other hand, Matt reminds us that the feeling of “empowerment is not about waiting for other people to say the right words at all. It is realizing how you are the one who needs to say the things that you’ve waited your entire life to hear. Only you hold the key to opening your heart by supporting yourself in a more consistent and intimate way.”

Now is the time to love you for who you are through the empowering act of self-love. It is time to love the choices you make. Feel empowered and give yourself permission to connect with and embrace the power of your heart as you focus on your physical health and mental/emotional well-being.

Focus on Your Own Journey into Consciousness

Focus on Your Own Journey into Consciousness

This is a gentle reminder to do your best to focus on your own journey into consciousness rather than feeling that you have to keep up with the proverbial Jones, whether it be your friends, family members or even co-workers or colleagues. At times, you may feel like a kid in a metaphysical candy store with a plethora of options to choose from – classes to take, books to read, modalities to study, and so on. Choose to really feel into what resonates with you personally instead of what your friend or colleague is doing.

When you consciously choose to step into your power and tune in to what is right for you, the answer will be very clear. You will know what feels right and what doesn’t. You will know if the class, teacher, book, or modality resonates with you personally. The feeling of empowerment is a strong knowingness and undeniable. When others attempt to guide you based on their own preferences, the feeling is one of uncertainty or confusion. It may be right for them, but it may not be right for you.

In the same sense, share your experiences and opportunities with others, but do your best not to influence them or make them feel obligated. Let them make up their own mind. When you do, both of you are empowered!

Navigating this Journey into Consciousness

Navigating this Journey into Consciousness

The point of life is not to get anywhere – it is to notice that you are, and have always been, already there. There is no such thing as an incorrect path –
for on this journey you cannot “not get” where you are going.
~ Neale Donald Walsch

As I stated in my last blog titled, Choose to Meet People Where They Are, navigating these waters of life can be challenging at times. Some days everything is awesome and life is good. Other days, we may feel like we are treading water and barely staying afloat. This journey into consciousness reminds us that everyone is having their own human life experience.

Remember, your soul is already awake. It is your human-ness that is waking up and connecting to the knowing-ness of your soul. The waking up process is an on-going process of consciousness and awareness.

Strengthening your relationship with Spirit involves heightening your awareness and taking note of everyone and everything that comes into your awareness. Don’t be obsessive. Rather, begin to acknowledge what you experience through your senses as you focus your energy in the present moment. Pay attention to what you see, hear, feel and know. Doing so will become easier with practice.

Signs come in the form of animal messengers. They may be birds, insects, mammals or reptiles. I love referencing Ted Andrew’s animal speak pocket guide when an animal crosses my path literally or comes into my awareness through media or during the dream state. Also, number sequences on the clock or phone, license plates, receipts, etc. are signs. Songs or short lyrics that come into our mind or on the radio are also signs.

First, acknowledge that you see the sign (regardless of what it may be) and then express your gratitude for receiving it. You will gain clarity on the meaning in due time. Sometimes, the message is just the awareness of receiving a sign.

Be kind to yourself as well as to those around you. Everyone is experiencing life in their own way and has their own reality.

Choose to Meet People Where They Are

Choose to Meet People Where They Are

life1

Navigating these waters of life can be challenging at times. Some days everything is awesome and life is good. Other days, we may feel like we are treading water and barely staying afloat. This journey into consciousness reminds us that everyone is having their own human life experience. Subsequently, we are typically at different places on this journey. Metaphysically speaking, some people are just now “waking up,” and some have been “awake” for a while. New relationships, relationships ending, birth, death, and career transitions tend to be milestones that mark our journey.

Our guides continually remind us to meet people where they are rather than feeling everyone already knows what we want/need, that our way is the only way, and so on. I totally get that everyone experiences life in different ways, is immersed and sometimes enmeshed in their own reality, has their own perception, level of awareness, way of receiving information, among others.

I do my best to meet people where they are rather than expect people to all be the same. Whether I am interacting on a personal level with friends and family, reading for clients or teaching classes, I recognize the importance of meeting people where they are without making the assumption that “one size fits all.” To me, this is an aspect of empathy as well as humanity.

Lastly, ask for help when you need it whether it’s your friends, family members or your spiritual support network (angels, guides and loved ones on the Other Side). Don’t assume people assume, and do your best to not have expectations on relationships regardless of their type. Choose to live consciously with empathy!

What’s Fear Have to do With It?

What’s Fear Have to do With It?

fear3
I believe there are two vibrations that exist – the vibration of love and the vibration of fear, which encompasses every emotion that isn’t love. As humans, I believe we are supposed to experience contrast, and we are able to do just that by the awareness of these vibrations.

I posed a question on my Facebook page asking, “What is one thing you are ready to release and let go of?” and acknowledged that the full moon energy currently underway will assist us with clearing the old to make way for the new.

Individuals who chose to comment indicated fear is what they were ready to let go of. I asked them to go a bit deeper by inquiring “fear of what?” Responses were fear of failure, fear of losing everything, fear of doing the wrong thing and not doing the right thing, and so on.

Defining the fear helps us to become more aware of what we are fearful of. I believe this feeling of fear is much different than the “healthy fear” to recognize danger. Focusing on feeling empowered that every choice we make is the right choice for us in the moment helps us to move through those moments of fear.

Awareness of fear, while not residing in the fear vibration is essential to our journey into consciousness. There is no need to allow fear to consume our energy. However, recognizing fear’s vibration and choosing to experience its contrast is beneficial.

So, what does fear have to do with it? Everything or nothing. Rather than being fearful or fearless, just have the awareness of the vibration of fear, but don’t reside there.
