Embracing the Power Within

Embracing the Power Within

Much of our power is to be found in the choices we make and the actions we take,
with every choice either leading us down the same familiar path
or propelling us toward a new future.
~ Debbie Ford

We know that the fear energies are really intense right now and feel extremely heavy with everything that is transpiring around us – health concerns, weather related events, world events and so on. As uncertainty continues, please do your best to stay present, adaptable and flexible as well as see the blessings within any challenges that arise.

In order to navigate through these tumultuous waters, it is so important that we do our best to focus on peace and love, which includes love for our self and what we need. Taking time for self-care (even scheduling it) is extremely beneficial for our physical health and mental/emotional well-being. We don’t want to wait until we are already physically and energetically exhausted before taking action.

Many of us are craving connection, yet we still need to make conscious choices. Tuning in to our own knowingness will assist us in doing just that. As human beings, we do have free will although it doesn’t always seem that way. Our ability to create begins with recognizing the power of choice. Sometimes, this concept is interpreted as – to choose this means to not choose that. 

Life is truly all about making choices and then choosing to take action on the choices that we make. The thoughts that we think and the words that we speak are energetic emissions. Once we are able to recognize the incredible power we behold and that everything is indeed energy, we can truly become conscious creators.

When we align our thoughts, words and actions with our beliefs and come from a place of love, amazing things will and do happen. We attract those people into our life who are a reflection of us, and we also attract people who are here to help us grow. We can choose to explore more in life and perhaps even step outside of our familiar comfort zone. The power of choice enables us to enhance our life or continue as is. It is up to us to embrace and embody the power that is within.

This excerpt from Rumi’s poem, Be Melting Snow, reminds us of our power within: “Lo, I am with you always means when you look for God, God is in the look of your eyes, in the thought of looking, nearer to you than yourself or things that have happened to you. There’s no need to go outside. Be melting snow. Wash yourself of yourself. A white flower grows in quietness. Let your tongue become that flower.”

Be true to you and make conscious, informed choices.

Feel into who and what is right for you as you make decisions.

Invest time and energy in what you love to grow your spirit.

Journey to Restoration

Journey to Restoration

Last Sunday, I attended a breathwork session at H2Oasis Float Center & Tea House. To learn more about breathwork, please read a previous blog titled Journey with Breathwork.

The intended theme for this particular session was “clearing the debris” in preparation for the upcoming session on December 23 titled Breathing in the Light. During the integration process at the conclusion of the breathwork, I felt extremely relaxed and peaceful. During the session itself, I recall lots of energy moving in the solar plexus and hearing the word “restoration” as well as a sense of becoming aware of my energy “pulls” (meaning those people, places and things that pull my energy). I knew clearing was occurring, and it felt gentle yet powerful.

Monday morning I woke up feeling like my energy had been “shaken and stirred.” Everything was triggering me, and I was extremely emotional (literally bawling my eyes out all afternoon). I usually “hold it together,” but there was no holding these emotions in. I typically say, “You have to feel it in order to heal it.” Apparently, the Universe wanted me to take note and honor my own advice.

The last few days I truly feel clearer than I have felt in a long time. According to the Merriam-Webster definition, restoration is “the action of returning something to a former owner, place, or condition.” Restoration feels like coming back to me – to wholeness and fullness.

Perhaps as we are wrapping up the final days of 2018, you may be guided to become more aware of your energy “pulls” and begin the process of coming back to you as well!

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.

Journey with Creativity

Journey with Creativity

Growing up, we were often told, “Use your imagination.” When hearing those words, I immediately think of being creative – writing a story, painting a picture or creating some other piece of art, playing a game or so on.

I recently used my own creative talents by creating my daughter’s floral arrangements for her wedding. Caitlin’s vision was a vintage theme for her wedding, so she borrowed numerous coffee pots and tea pots from her grandmother Sylvia. Purchasing bulk flowers from Sam’s Club, we (Caitlin, my mom and myself) arranged all of the flowers, and we had an immense amount of fun while doing so.

We didn’t have a game plan; we simply opted to use our imagination and see what evolved. I was reminded of a talk I presented at Unity of Fayetteville on Beholding the Power of Imagination. Here is a short excerpt along with a couple of tips to increase your imagination for better creative thinking:

The ability to imagine enables us to experience a whole world inside our mind, and it is the ultimate creative power. A developed and strong imagination can strengthen your creative abilities and is a great tool for creating consciously to achieve our heart’s desires. What we imagine with faith and feelings comes into being. This involves incorporating aspects of creative visualization, positive thinking and affirmations. George Bernard Shaw suggests “Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.”

One way to increase your imagination is to expand your interests. Creativity is fueled by passion. Expand your interests by shifting your focus to include other interests that you may be passionate about. Another way is to read more. Creativity and imagination are sparked by learning.

What are some ways you use your imagination and creative talents?
