God Is On My Side

p1

God gave us an earth that was unfinished so we could work with what’s here and in the process know our powers as CREATORS.

I know of nothing else (except parenthood) that shows us how strong, capable and un-bendable we are inside.

Your goals want you as much as you want them.

The universe has your back.

Things are working for your good, even your so called, “set backs.”

Who Do I Want to Be?

whodoiwanttobe

 

We get at least a hundred opportunities in a single day to ask ourselves:

WHO DO I WANT TO BE?

Do I want to be love, abundance, forgiveness, present, Spirit-centered and in Divine flow? (or all kinds of other ways)

Today, we make the choices, and in the days to come — life will show us how we answered.

Stay Steady in Transition

steady in transition

One of the reasons I love the sea, is that it reminds me that everything comes and goes.

Life is always changing. A situation comes today, and by tomorrow it’s over. That was the deal–the way this was set up.

We, eternal beings, would be placed on a planet where everything was constantly in motion. A thousand things a day would come at us–some of them difficult and confusing–but all of them temporary, while we searched for happiness, and survival.

What would we do? How would we respond?

The flow is always coming, and another going at the very same time.

While I sit here in front of the ocean, I have the thought of two years ago when I went through some really hard times. I can’t remember much. The details are so faint in my head now. The one part I can remember, is thinking that I was going to die, the pain was so intense sometimes.

I didn’t die…. [ to my surprise at times]

I just kept living. I couldn’t die, it seemed.

I’d fall into bed exhausted, and the next day would tap on my shoulder and wake me up wanting to me to live it. Day after day, new opportunities came to learn and integrate that learning into my being.

I am so saturated in happiness now, I sit in wonder often at how all this came to be.

As the waves roll in one after another, no end in sight, I am looking for the pattern, trying to pin point how I got from there to here.

I remember that in each life situation that came rolling in, I would look for my own center–Even if it tumbled me, I was looking to grip the ground.

In everything, I asked God to walk me through it.

I let go of blame and anger and looked for the fastest entry point to peace.

I always had to take that exit alone, getting rid of the story of “everyone else,” –what they said, what they thought, what they did — blah, it only weighed me down.
Christ–who is the God of my understanding–WAS my tour guide. It was His voice I looked for; His presence, and I could find it every time I silenced the world and asked him to meet me.

A while ago, someone asked me how I got to be attuned to spiritual things. I have no answer except that I know if you reach for your God a thousand times, a REAL BEING comes to meet you. He is completely alive. His voice sounds a certain way. His Spirit has a resonance. His Light is so familiar. He is not an ethereal fictitious character written with black ink on thousand year old pages. He — is — close, so reachable.

There is no lack of access to Him; all of our separation is lack of desire and discipline in reaching FOR Him.

And that was THE WAY. A true, genuine relationship from one soul to another.
It’s the answer I am looking to give to myself when I wonder how I got from pain to peace.

My own affidavit that God is in our cells, waiting for us to take look into our own DNA.

The more we practice PEACE, the more it becomes who we are. And soon, we get so tall, that a lot of waves roll in that we don’t even notice.

I am not sure what tomorrow will bring. Thankfully, I don’t need to know. There will definitely be more waves.

Yesterday there were four different people who expressed a unhappiness with me for different reasons. There were two phone calls of business emergencies, a total emotional fit from my daughter, and a twelve year old deeply unhappy I said no to him. Plus, I have a load of whites I haven’t washed for three days and I am totally out of underwear now. (That’s probably more than people want to know.)

There is going to be more waves…lol…I know that for sure.

They will come and go.
That’s what waves do.

I will always have the same question in front of me.

How do I want to experience this?
Who do I want TO BE while I am here?

I really do feel, that looking for the CENTER, the Highest response, and direction from the God of my understanding, is the ONLY answer there is ever going to be to these thousands of situations.

And the ONLY ONE required.

Things Work Out

Love this little reminder that there’s always an answer.

Stillness is the partner of knowing.¬†Knowing comes by feel, and we can’t get to knowing until we can calm down our thinking.

Trust. Deep breaths.

The way will appear.

The Kingdom of God is Within You

Jan7

It no longer surprises me to read things like, “The kingdom of God is within you.”

If you believe that YOU ARE DIVINE and have a GOD-SELF inside of you, life is easier.

It’s more difficult to believe that you are unworthy and desperate to be good enough in God’s eyes.

Our plan was to plunge below our heavenly home, live away at earth school, experience everything WE ARE NOT, have a veil covering our minds so we know little outside of now, encounter opposition on every side–even from within our current nature, and be left to struggle day to day for survival (natural cause for stress built right into the fabric of the system)

and against these odds and limitations.. the GOD SELF (in embryo) would rise in us, and re-create what we already know deep within.

By CALLING it FORTH AGAIN (against opposition in and around us), we would accelerate our growth in a way that no other situation could equal.

We become stronger, more knowledgeable, and LEGIT–having REAL DATA, TRUE ABILITIES that took the form of something tangible in who we are, being earned with the street cred of EXPERIENCE.

This is a great plan. I love this plan.

It was the plan for your day today and it’s what’s on the agenda for tomorrow.

It is so much EASIER to believe this–that you have a God-self a process of wakening…than to scramble around on the ground looking for your worth.

Because from that knowledge, it is easier to rise.

We Can Only Control Ourselves

27

My husband and I had some mentoring on MINDFULNESS.

Even though we have a spirit, we also have an EGO MIND.

The ego mind has quick, emotional reactions always designed to protect itself, always in the position of being “right.”

MINDFULNESS teaches us to be AWARE of those knee-jerk reactions, but not believe they tell us the core truth and not to act them out.

When you are MINDFUL, you watch them pop up; you investigate your own responses.

Being aware of them allows you to get to the core truth faster; And choose responses aligned with your spiritual values of love and kindness.

What I learned the most from our training is to LIVE IN AWARENESS of my inner self at all times.

That awareness leads me to the truth and to respond with peace.

As I have control over myself–and my own responses to life–I have the only kind of control that works.

Thankful for this Moment

thankful for this moment

Last week my meditation teacher (& spiritual mentor) came to my house for our session and told me, “You’re always trying to get somewhere and your inability to fully appreciate this moment is why you have some of the dis-ease you’ve been telling me about.” I said, “Get out of my house.”

I laughed. He laughed too, because he knew I was joking. I was using humor to deflect momentarily from the fact that HE WAS RIGHT. Again. Then I said, “Well, if I just build my business a little, tiny, bit bigger (imagine me pressing my fingers to the size of an inch in the air) “I think I’ll finally be satisfied and feel that I’ve arrived. He smiled. Another joke.

I like his sense of humor and he likes the fact that I investigate every suggestion and consider it might be true.

I made this picture as a reminder and I admit, after our little chat I was definitely more mindful. I had moved appreciation to the forefront of my attention and I admit, a few times this week, I’ve fallen into a river of gratitude so deep, I thought to myself, “I have all have ever wanted and more.”

And joy was gushing.

Wake Up to a Calling

Wake Up to a Calling

The day I decided the only work I would do in the world was something that mattered, things changed for me.

I left a small mechanical life and went instead, for more depth, meaning, and pushing limits, mostly my own.

It was worth it.

Joy

When you get to a certain level of a JOY awareness, you start to fix things that for years, you didn’t have any clue were broken.
