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.

Guest on Off the Cuff with SDJ

I had the extreme pleasure of joining Sunny Dawn Johnston for a conscious conversation on Off the Cuff with SDJ. We covered a gamut of topics, including conscious creation.

Journey with Inspiration

Journey with Inspiration

Spirit (also can be referred to as our angels, guides, Consciousness, Source, God and the Universe) continually provides us with numerous messages to assist us on our journey into consciousness. Guidance and inspiration will flow to us and through us, so that we can assist others on their journey as well.

There is a universal, intelligent, life force that exists within everyone and everything.
It resides within each one of us as a deep wisdom, an inner knowing.
~ Shakti Gawain

According to Google dictionary, inspiration is “the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative; a sudden brilliant, creative, or timely idea.”

Rather than put my “thinking cap” on, I prefer to get in the flow and put my “inspiration cap” on. Taking action on what flows to us sends the message that we are serious when it comes to creating consciously.

Feeling immensely inspired, I labored on a project over Labor Day weekend 2019. After investing 50+ hours over the weekend, I went to place the order for the mini picture book I created and there was a glitch with their program. Twenty of the 44 pages I created had disappeared and were blank. I called the company first thing the next morning to learn that those pages would need to be recreated. Initially, I was upset that all of my time, energy and inspiration had seemingly gone to waste. Then, I had a vision of the monks creating a sand mandala only to be destroyed upon completion to convey the message of impermanence — that everything is changing and nothing is permanent.

This experience didn’t deter me at all. Early December, I received the message that it was time to move forward with a book. After writing it, I let it simmer for a bit because it felt ho-hum and not “good enough.” I realized I needed to practice the pause, embrace the magic within and get in the flow of inspiration.

Plus, I had to really shift some energy around my viewpoint of it not being good enough. As humans, I realize we periodically have those thoughts – Am I good enough? Is what I have to offer good enough? Is what I have to say good enough? Is what I have written good enough? Realistically, the impression of “good enough” is based on perception and comparison to another.

Put your own inspiration cap on and let the inspiration flow. See what comes to you and moves through you. Remember, it is up to you to take action.

*I should mention that my new book, Embracing the Magic Within, and accompanying Clarity Cards are forthcoming! Release date to be announced soon!

Journey through Discomfort

Journey through Discomfort

Whenever you’re feeling moments of discomfort,
that means true change is happening for you.
~ John David Washington

We have been taught that life happens outside of our comfort zone or that we grow through challenges, and I do believe that is true. I also believe that the Universe presents us with contrasting experiences, so that we can understand fully what this human life experience is comprised of. If everything feels good and is comfortable, how do we grow?

I recently traveled to Camp Chesterfield in Chesterfield, Indiana, which is a historic spiritual community founded in 1886, to present three workshops. Upon arriving, I immediately discovered that the lodging did not have air conditioning. Much of the United States was experiencing a heat wave, Indiana included!

I inquired about a fan to be told that I would need to purchase one, so I did knowing that some air blowing on me would be better than none. The rooms did have windows that opened and also a ceiling fan, but the ceilings were high, and there was no air moving. I recognized that I was not special nor was I the only person in that situation. However, sleeping in the heat is very challenging, especially when you are not accustomed to it.

I chose to view it as a learning experience and even a test coming from the “spiritual broadcasting system.” As the hours passed and I was alone with myself, I questioned why I was there having this experience and the answer I received was simply put, “because you are.” I was having a meltdown literally and figuratively speaking.

Be not afraid of discomfort. If you can’t put yourself in a situation where you are uncomfortable, then you will never grow.
You will never change. You’ll never learn.
~ Jason Reynolds

Yes, I could have left the grounds and sought another cooler place to stay, but I chose to stay put because I’m not a quitter. When I commit to something, I follow through. My emotions were running high, and I honored each thought and feeling as they arose.

After sleeping just a short time, I decided to get up and walk the grounds before it was daylight. As dawn approached, I felt more at peace with my presence.

A dear friend helped to shift my perspective a few hours later. She had studied there several decades ago and more than likely stayed in the same accommodations. Her response to my “having a meltdown” text was powerful! She conveyed, “Meltdown? Why? Feeling alone? Outside comfort zone? You are strong and a soldier for Spirit and women. [You are] an independent woman with all the strength of the past spiritual seekers on a pilgrimage to explore all that is. This year teaches you the value of both home and travel, and they are both part of the wonderful life of a mystical seeker. Make the most of it as you can. Think of it like a sweat lodge retreat 24 hours a day with weight loss, cleansing and Spirit!”

I smiled and realized she was absolutely right!!!! The next night seemed to be a bit easier. On Sunday, I made the conscious choice to drive back to Indianapolis to stay in an air-conditioned hotel close to the airport, and I am so grateful I did!

Journey with Support

Journey with Support

marcelproustquote

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners
who make our souls blossom
. ~ Marcel Proust

We are not alone on this journey…

Every human being desires to not only feel loved, but to give love as well. It is innate within each one of us to want to connect with others, to want to be open and to live an authentic life. We want to love and to be loved in return. Expressing love and sharing kindness takes such a small effort, yet has an enormous effect. This ripple of love surpasses anything anyone could imagine if they would simply allow this love to come in. There is an essential need for people to grow together, support one another and walk together as both human companions and soul companions.

Recognizing your connection to those people who are in your life today will assist you in understanding the important roles we play in each other’s lives. Please remember though to not compare your journey to anyone else’s journey as we are all having our own unique human life experiences. As fellow travelers on this journey into consciousness, let’s be happy for one another, celebrate the accomplishments and be supportive during the challenging times.

Personally speaking, I’ve had relationships with both friends and colleagues shift and change. It isn’t a bad thing per se, it just happens. My true friends know that I am always a phone call, text or email away if they need me. Some of my friends I am in daily contact with. Others, there may be days, weeks and even months that go by with very little contact, yet once we do talk; it’s as if no time has passed. To me, that is what true friendship is all about.

Some people feel hurt and neglected if they have friends who aren’t “daily connection” friends. When you feel this way, honor yourself and what you are feeling and then ask yourself a few questions. Have you reached out to those friends in your life? Have you let them know that you miss them or that you need them? Have you been the kind of friend to them that you want them to be? Friendship is most definitely a 2-way street.

Ultimately, we are here to support, encourage and love one another for this human life experience.
