Journey with Aliveness

Journey with Aliveness

Imagination makes it possible to experience a whole world inside the mind and creates possibilities. It offers the opportunity to look at any situation from a different point of view and then to mentally explore the past and the future. Through the power of imagination, we can transform our lives and is one of the keys to living an enhanced or different life. Whatever outcome we envision, we can achieve. Using this gift, we can release limiting thoughts and realize our divine potential.

Learn to use your imagination to raise your thinking to a higher level and to consciously create by choosing to replace any negative (lower vibrational) thoughts with positive (higher vibrational) ones through awareness and intention. Doubt and fear are the biggest obstacles to the manifestation process. Understanding how to use your imagination and putting this knowledge into practice, for your own and others’ benefit, will put you on the path to success, satisfaction and happiness.

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. ~ Golda Meir

With so much heavy and chaotic energy surrounding us, it is essential to attain and maintain inner peace, not just for ourselves, but also for the collective consciousness. A heart-centered love-based intention reminds us to stay in a space of grace, especially when faced with challenges. In doing so, we are tapping into the well of Divine love. This love is accessible, unconditional and unfaltering. It transcends yet also embraces.

It is time for each one of us to wake up to our greatness so that we can truly live life fully. Have the courage to imagine this reality and choose to journey into consciousness with fullness and aliveness rather than simply existing.

Journey without Judgment

Journey without Judgment

I often say each one of us are having our own unique human life experience. However, all too often, we deny ourselves the opportunity to experience something magical or even limit ourselves based on the fear of being judged. What will people think? How will people perceive me? Will they like me? Is this good or bad, right or wrong?

We may also withhold expressing how we feel because we fear being criticized or judged for saying too much or not enough. To me, it feels extremely limiting to get caught up in what other people think, yet I am human, too, so those thoughts do arise.

As always, I like to clarify what I am referring to. According to Merriam-Webster.com., judgment is defined as “the process of forming an opinion or evaluation by discerning and comparing; the capacity for judging; a formal utterance of an authoritative opinion.” Criticism is defined as “the act of criticizing usually unfavorably; a critical observation or remark.”

Words are power. They have the ability to hurt or to heal. I’m “old school” in that I believe if you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all as well as don’t give your opinion unless it is asked for.

Recent experiences and interactions prompted me to write this blog. I do my best to be an observer and even become conscious of when I am being a bit “judgy,” whether it is of myself or others. After packing my suitcase for a trip, I opted to weigh it to make sure that I was within airline weight limits. I weighed myself, so that I could weigh again holding the suitcase. The numbers on the scale reflected a number much higher than I desired them to be. I immediately began judging myself based on those numbers. Realizing the self-talk was ridiculous, I stopped berating myself and recognized I could do something to reduce the number it reflected or continue to be in a place of judgment.

After speaking recently at Unity of Fayetteville, I had two separate people approach me after the service saying they wished I had delivered a message that was less structured and more from the heart. Prior to their comments and even after, I had several people convey to me that they loved the message, and it touched them. I recognize people have their own perspective, and I can’t please everyone most of the time.

With that said, do your best to live your life fully with no regret. Speak from the heart. Be present in the moment. Stop judging (being critical) of yourself and those around you. Surrender to the sweetness of life. Live your life and let others live theirs. Everyone is experiencing their own journey into consciousness.

Maintaining the Spark

Maintaining the Spark

Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, but nobody is equal either.
People are simply unique, incomparable.
You are you, I am I.
I have to contribute my potential to life; you have to contribute your potential to life.
I have to discover my own being; you have to discover your own being. ~ Osho

Many individuals long to know their purpose. Who am I? Why I am here? What am I supposed to be doing? These questions are similar to keys that unlock the door to more! Asking these questions offers us the opportunity to connect to our Higher self – the knowingness of our soul.

Each one of us has the Divine spark within us. It is our right to be all that we are intended to be and so much more. Through awareness and conscious creation, we can each step forward into our own authentic expression as Divine beings on this planet. We can also choose to acknowledge our Oneness, while celebrating our uniqueness.

As we become more aware of our energetic emission as well as the importance of shining our Light bright, we offer others the comfort-ability to do so for themselves as well. As we change ourselves and our thought processes, we become empowered to stand in our power and to feel safe in expressing the truth of who we are. Shifting energy is truly a matter of changing how we view the situation, experience, person, place or thing!

Allow yourself the opportunity to embrace your aliveness and navigate the waters of your human life experience on this journey into consciousness. Even so, at times, our spark may need to be sparked. This inner fire does not go out completely, but it can feel like it at times. One conversation, one encounter, one moment can spark the spark, fan the flame, and relight the ember.

Honor yourself and feel your emotions as you recognize those individuals who rekindle your spirit.

In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.
We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
~ Albert Schweitzer

Journey with Joy

Journey with Joy

As I’m beginning to write, these Sunday school song lyrics are in my mind:
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart
Where?
Down in my heart!
Where?
Down in my heart!
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart
Down in my heart to stay

Joy is defined as a feeling of great pleasure and happiness. Personally speaking, it is often the simple things that bring me the greatest joy. We have recently had a lot of rain in Oklahoma, and I am always on the lookout to see a rainbow when it rains. Traveling home from Tulsa last week, I was eager and excited to catch a glimpse of one beginning to form.

Subsequently, I was delighted to view an entire one from end to end. Sensing my joy, my husband offered to pull the truck over several times, so I could fully embody the experience rather than whizzing by at 65 mph.

I snapped several images, yet the vibrancy and expansiveness were unable to be captured fully. Nevertheless, here are two of the images from that moment in time.

Of course, this is just one example. I believe that it is essential for each one of us to become aware of how we’re investing our emotional, mental, financial, and physical energy, and then choosing to recognize whether these activities bring us joy, connection, nurturing, rest, and creativity to our lives.

When we focus on bringing love and joy to our life or perhaps just allowing it to happen rather than bringing, it will have a ripple effect throughout our life. A simple affirmation can assist us with this process.

Affirm ~ My heart overflows with gratitude and joy. I am conscious of being present in this moment. I recognize that I am love and I am loved. I am allowing myself to simply breathe.

What makes you happy? How do you journey with joy?

Everything is Energy

Everything is Energy

Energy definition according to Merriam-Webster dictionary:

  1. the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity (a person’s physical and mental powers, typically as applied to a particular task or activity)
  2. power derived from the utilization of physical or chemical resources, especially to provide light and heat or to work machines

No activity is possible without energy, and its total amount in the universe is fixed. In other words, energy cannot be created or destroyed, but can only be changed from one type to another. This includes your loved ones who have transitioned from the earth plane. They no longer have a physical body, but still remain energy.

Breath is life-force energy. When we restrict our breathing, we diminish our life energy. Deep breathing expands the lungs, which then send a direct message to your heart, which in turn starts beating slower. Focus your awareness on your breath – each inhalation and exhalation. Is it shallow or deep, slow or fast, smooth or rough, regular or irregular?

Thoughts, words, action = energy!

Be mindful of the energy you are putting out into the Universe with your thoughts, words and actions as you are attracting this same energy back into your life. What you focus on becomes your reality. Your self-talk and the other thoughts running through your mind are similar to radio signals. Choose to be conscious of those energetic emissions.

What energetic emission/radio transmission are you sending out? No need to define it as “good” or “bad.” Simply have the awareness of your energy. Is your energy scattered or focused/grounded? Empowered or dis-empowered? Clingy/needy or confident? Stable or unstable? Joyful/happy or unhappy? Light or heavy? Now, take a deep breath and really tap into creating consciously with your energetic emission.

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!
