I had the thought the other day that for most of my life I’ve had a feeling of desperation about life and the need to stay ahead of the game of life; a need to control the outcome… Running for life as it were, and needing to have control over things that would have been so much easier to release to the Universal Goodness, to God and to the Holy Spirit through prayer and meditation… And blessing whatever was going on. Instead, I stressed and struggled and have lived a life of quiet desperation, as Henry David Thoreau so brilliantly reminded us in his writing.
So what now?
How does one allow life to unfold marvelously and intentionally without stressing over everything?
I was called to serve… After answering the call to facilitate A Course in Miracles now for the 3rd month I have realized how much I have grown spiritually, and how I’ve been able to center my thinking on the idea of oneness. After years of studying the Course of Miracles and facilitating classes, now I can see that what the course is teaching is a return to wholeness or as A Course in Miracles reminds us a return to right mindedness. A reminder that I don’t have to control the outcome. It is as simple as showing up and allowing the energy to guide me while in class. No longer do I have to have an opinion or a need to control, it is as simple as showing up open and receptive to the energy of the group.
Life seems to have stopped being a struggle and has become an extraordinary learning process and the energy of more in a balanced way. When I say balance, I am talking mostly about trusting that the Universe really has my back and that no matter what is going on in the exterior, the real me, the infinite part of me is always safe, abundant and joyful. I am not stuck, I don’t need to continue to command everything in life, now, life seems to be more effortless and joyful.
I have always had a natural inclination toward plants and a love for flowers. I feel most at ease while walking in nature and tending my garden. This has become my walking daily meditation. I seem to have a “green thumb” and I love to see my garden filled with flowers. I have a natural ability to choose plants and harmonize planted pots, plants love the way I take care of them and multiply with ease. Even now as I write about it my energy changed to the experience of tending my garden! What a joy it is to wake up in the morning and walk in the garden to see the flowers that bloomed that day; especially the ones that only flower at night and last only till morning. It is such a joy to discover new plants that I have not seen before. It reminds me of the beauty of being alive to experience the joy of walking, the joy of getting my toes wet in the sand when we walk at the beach, loving the sun and the wind on my skin. When I am gardening…. When I am walking on the beach, there is nothing else in the world, just my communion with nature and the ease of life at the moment. What can I create when I allow myself to enter into the knowingness that Godliness is so much more than the idea of a mundane life?
Living in the idea that my life is a metaphor for change and creativity and that I’ve lived trapped in the solidified beliefs that were implanted in my being-ness by society and by my parents way too long; not that any of that is wrong, but that it is time for me to allow a new idea of creation that is all mine. So, for the next part of my evolution as I grow in consciousness is a billion pieces of the puzzle of unveiling what more is possible?
Listening to the words of the Master: Know ye not that ye are Gods?
And WHAT is THAT?
Accepting what Jesus taught (John 14:12) “that greater works than these will ye do” and now look at the sky scrapers and the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge and see that we concentrated in the miraculousness of expression in the material realm and that we have also found cures for many maladies of the human condition.
Isn’t it time now to birth a new idea of unlimited abundance and a deep connection with the Divine?
Is this the reality that is waiting to be revealed? And what does that mean?
Isn’t it time to bridge the gap between the ethereal and the material? And how do we begin????
We begin with the end in mind and with the energy we would love to create in our own reality, what is the miraculousness of my life that I am not currently seeing?
So what is heaven? Isn’t heaven an idea of living in an overwhelming attitude of appreciation and gratitude? A Course in Miracles says that “creating is how we increase the kingdom and give thanks to God for our own creation”.
If gratitude is the attitude and we are creating in unison with God then we already are living in a self created heaven because heaven is the living condition of gratitude that resides within us, and in how we live our lives.
Are you a giver or a taker? Because taking is the attitude of lack and giving opens the door to limitless abundance! What are you choosing?
So you see, for me, adopting the idea that to live in gratitude opens me to receiving the gifts the universe has stored for me and that my prayers are always answered, allows me to be open to receive!
Meandering through my story may help you understand my absolute knowing that my life is always unfolding in Divine perfection and my new mantra that All of Life Comes to me with Ease, and Joy and Glory. That when I begin to suffer and control my only question is what is right about this that I am not seeing? How can I create with ease and joy?
So I was going to say… the end, here, but really for me this is just the beginning and so I am ending with my beginnings!
Living in complete allowance to the infinite possibilities that have been offered to me in this lifetime without reservations and trusting that the part of me that is always connected to the matrix of life and to the Divine is taking me by the hand and guiding my every step towards the understanding that I am already awake and that I step into life filled with complete confidence and without reservations… That is the life that I am welcoming, that makes my life worth living!
I grew up with fear… I was taught to fear everything… releasing the fear opens infinite possibilities and the energy of having arrived. Knowing that there’s nothing more to do than to follow my joy and embrace my Godliness, because it is there, it is palpable. It is as real as breathing… Nothing to buy nor to do… just be in the energy of… godliness!!!!
I love what Maya Angelo said… that you do what you know how to do and when you know better you do better! Do we know better now? It is time to awaken to the reality of our God-liness!!! What else is possible when we open our mind to the energy of more?
Would you let this month be the most magical harvest in your life?
Did you know that August is known as the month of harvest?
In this magnificent month of harvest what are the things that you are harvesting in your life?
Are you ready to take a step into your dreams and engage in the blessings that your creative genius is rearing to bring to the world?
For me the most important everyday choice that I can make is to tune into the magic within me; a magic that is so ready to jump into existence and transform my life with ease. That is what it means to live a magical life! Allowing magic to show up in my life is letting my life be easy. It is following my intuition as the guiding light as I listen to the deeper knowing; something that sometimes I tune out.
Why this month? Why not do it all the time? Well, this month acts as my reminder that as I start a new month I have a brand new opportunity to create anew, and to choose again.
The act of choosing is so important because it is the beginning of creation, and as I follow the energy that builds worlds, I can also create magic for myself and others. I don’t do this by interfering in someone else’s creation, but by living in the generative energy of limitless possibility… Living in the possibility of freedom and abundance; living in the expansive energy of allowing for God’s blessings to be the norm, instead of living in the poverty of limiting thoughts. Choosing is also my way of becoming more aware of the ways in which I have been distracting myself from the magic. An energy that I can welcome into my life instead of wallowing in my thoughts of illness and scarcity. What the last few months have shown me is that it is all in the realm of my choice. Aligning with a higher intention for what I would like to create for this month can help bring about the possibility of more abundance and more creativity, things that are limited when I avoid choosing or recognizing that whatever is going on in life at the time is the reality in my life, and when I know that I can change it by tuning into a different reality. I know that I have the tools that can open the portal to a magical month and a magical mindset, and that it is my choice. How can it get any better than that?
Since April, when I was feeling that my energy was really low, I started asking my body to show me how to heal what was making it sick. The discovery that my questioning led me to was that all of the doctors appointments, and all the fear I was experiencing was rooted in a nutritional deficiency. That was causing me discomfort. Had I decided to listen to the cardiologist who told me that Atrial Fibrillation couldn’t be cured and acquiesced to taking massive doses of drugs to trick my body into surrendering to a condition, I would have missed the truth that with a simple change in diet and some added supplements could handle the issue. It is through listening to my body that I am living my best life.
Is choosing different the easiest way? No!!! Not at first.
Going against established beliefs is not easy – though it may be the only and best way to get to the true freedom of choice. The prospect of taking three different high blood pressure medications is absurd, especially when I can choose to change my diet, exercise and pray for a different outcome. This was my choice… to allow my awareness to guide me so I could have a life experience worth living.
I’m not guaranteeing that it is an easy choice to make. It implies taking charge of your life and making informed decisions. It means doing my own research and following the advice that resonates with my body and taking responsibility for my own body and health.
I’m learning to live in the question of what else is possible for my life? What is right about this that I am not seeing? What is my next step that will bring me to my best life? At every stage the open ended questions are the key to opening the door to the magical me… the whole me. This is my life worth living, this is my magical life. What is yours?
What gets you excited in the morning? What brings you joy? What is your best life?
Would you be open to considering that there may be more money, better health, and more amazing unending adventures for you at every point of your life?
This morning as I was in the kitchen making a cup of hot organic cacao, I had the realization of how fortunate I am. In fact, how amazingly super wealthy I am… No, not because I have millions of dollars in the bank account or because I live an extravagant life, but because I am living my dream life. Do you think that I dreamt that one day I would be living in a relaxed environment with my special person, and with the prospect of a new career doing what I dreamed of for years? Did I ask for the universe to give me a huge house, an expensive car and a large bank account? No!
I prayed for an abundant life. I prayed for life to be easy and I prayed to be guided to my best yet to be life and today I was able to recognize that I am there. I am in deep appreciation of my special refuge from the world, my amazing relationship with an amazing man who loves me and makes me laugh – someone who loves a lot of the same things I do (like eating whole foods, walking, reading and going to church together).
I have been able to finally heal my body in a way that my body is finally comfortable being alive and generating the energy to do and be all that is possible at this time in my life. And it all started with gratitude and prayer. My prayer is a continual conversation with my Beloved and knowing that the energy of God is always with me.
Starting with my intention to choose to live in a generative energy of love and gratitude, allowing the energy to guide me and recognizing that this is really the only way to fulfill my dreams. It is trusting that I am moving in the right direction because of how I feel and following my joy.
How and what are you harvesting in your own life? Are you asking questions that will bring you joy? It is your harvest, one of drama and pain. What are you choosing?
