Radiance Reappearing

Currently your natural energy flow is blocked by the samskaras in your lower energy centers.
Michael A. Singer, Living Untethered

And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten…
Joel 2:25

Lately I feel as though I am in a PhD program for spiritual awakening. My past is appearing before me as never before. I now see how the beliefs I developed in the early years of my life (probably before the age of 5) have been determining the decisions I have made throughout my entire life. Those decisions were based on my belief that I was unsafe in this world and that it was up to me to make sure I would be safe for the rest of my life.

At first coming into touch with the reality of that life-long belief system and then looking at all the choices I made in my life over the years based on those beliefs made me very sad and regretful.

But as I sit with this new information and awaken to this reality, I’m seeing my life now and all my experiences and interactions with others in a whole new way. I ask myself, “Is what I’m feeling here based on an old belief system? Is an old story being repeated? What is truly triggering my discomfort? Is there something to fear here or am I just replaying an old tape?” I’m coming full circle back to the miracle when my spirit entered
my baby body—innocent and free, sweet and loving, trusting, adventurous and safe!

Most importantly, I realize now that there is no other. There is only me, being me, looking at me. There is only one. This I think is our whole purpose for being in this human body—that we may have the opportunity before we die to return to our innocence and experience heaven on this earth.

Welcome home!

Affirmation
I am made new!

Resist Not

If you practice letting go of your blockages, not only will you get to live in an elevated inner state, you will also become a blessing on the Earth.
Michael A. Singer, Living Untethered

In his book Singer calls those blockages “samskaras,” and he says they are running our lives, and they will be until they are not. I have discovered in my own life, as I become aware of a blockage, the nature of its beginning, and am able to move past it, I find myself happier, more at peace and more in love than ever before with my life and everyone everywhere. In my acceptance and allowing, the unconditional love within me, which is my essential nature, is free to flow upward and out into the world.

Where I feel any resistance within me now about anything, I take a close look to see what it is I’m resisting, if there is a blockage, and why. This is an advanced course in spiritual awakening. The freedom that comes from letting go of a blockage as it comes up is startling to say the least and so freeing. Many of the blockages we experience come from way back in our childhood, and we have been letting them dictate our lives and the
decisions we make ever since.

What I know absolutely is that my true nature is love. When I take that deep dive within my being I find unconditional love. It is my essence and if nothing is blocking it, the divine flow of my love moves up throughout my whole being and out into the world.

We have come here in physical form to play, dance and sing and certainly to love from the depths of our being.

So I say, resist not or at least take an inward look at what you are resisting and why. You will begin to see the ways in which you have limited your ability to experience the divine flow of unconditional love. Move into acceptance and allowing and set yourself free!

Affirmation
I let go of my resistance to what is.

Compassion Found

“Having gone beyond the mind-made opposites, you become like a deep lake.  The outer situation of your life and whatever happens there is the surface of the lake.  Sometimes calm, sometimes windy and rough, according to the cycles and seasons.  Deep down, however, the lake is always undisturbed.  You are the whole lake, not just the surface…”

Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now

As I sit to watch the evening news, my heart fills with unbelievable compassion.  I discover it in the deepest part of myself.  It appears that I’m not alone in this discovery for compassion seems to be awakened now in human beings in every corner of the world.  We are getting to see first hand the pain of war, the pain of separation.  

I focus on this awakening of compassion, which seems to be showing up everywhere, no matter the nationality.  We never know why anything happens the way it does.  We never know the good that comes out of events that on the surface seem to be humanly so wrong.

I discover that no matter the situation, my job is always to find the place of healing within myself that allows me to see the blessing in what appears to be catastrophe.  In that way, I become a contributing force for good, not just for myself, but also for the whole human family.

Healings happen in the light of love and compassion.  It is that love and compassion that brings us peace individually and unites us all over the world as one people, inseparable one from another.  And so, as I watch the news, as the events of the day unfold before me, I remember the essence of me, that part of me that can find a greater truth no matter the situation, and the peace and compassion within me for all humanity magnifies.

God is in all things.  I remember that and find my way home to my essential self filled with peace, joy and love.  I remember that I am the whole lake, not just the surface.  I am in touch with my own depth, which remains absolutely still.  It is this deep compassion that creates the potential for healing all over the world. 

Affirmation

I remember who I am at the deepest level no matter what pain I see happening in the outer world.

The Promised Land

Right here.  Right now.  Not in some far off distant place or time, but right here, right now.  What I’ve been looking for is here right now.  Nothing has to change but my sense of reality.  I don’t have to make something happen; I have to allow it to happen.  God as my life is so real.

So I sit this morning submerged in the glory of God.  Sitting in the stillness allows me to break free from the thinking mind.  Then I begin to operate from the mind of God, unlimited and unafraid.  Inspired into conscious living and loving, being open to new and inspired ways of being—unlimited in my potential, thoughtful and generous in my pursuits.  Realizing in an instant…it’s not just about my success and happiness; it’s about everyone’s success and happiness.  Generosity of spirit.  Love for everyone and everything!  Freedom from judgment of others or myself.

This is living a God-inspired life.  It is filled with joy and infinite possibility.  Clearing away all confusion, living from the highest and best within me.  Such freedom—such unbounded freedom.  I am the light, and I see the light.

God is real and I am love.  I am witness to my own perfection.

The Wounded Child Within

When we speak of listening with compassion, we usually think of listening to someone else.  But we must also listen to the wounded child inside of us.
Thich Nhat Hanh, Anger

It’s amazing how many wounds we carry from childhood, some so deep we may be dealing with them over and over again throughout our life.

As we evolve spiritually we like to think that once we have faced and handled a particular painful experience from the past, that it is handled for the rest of our life.  Unfortunately that is not the case.  That same wound may be triggered by someone or something else entirely and we are left to once again deal with our painful past.  This may go on throughout life but the good news is hopefully we get better at identifying when we are triggered by something inside of us.  We get better at identifying what is our issue to deal with, not someone else’s.

It may take time in the silence to clearly process what has transpired but over time as our consciousness is lifted, it becomes easier to identify what is ours to deal with and what belongs to another.  And that is the true grace that is given by God in our process of “becoming.”  That is the personal integrity that develops within us as we continue to walk our spiritual path.

Each time we revisit a wound from the past, its power over us is diminished.  We are here in this lifetime to heal the past of anything and everything that would keep us in separation from our divine Self, the Self that knows its oneness with God and all beings.  Do not be afraid to face the past honestly, wounds and all, for that is the way to true freedom and happiness.

Affirmation
I am fearless in my living and loving and am supported by God in all things

The Changeless

Ye are the light of the world.
St. Matthew 5:14

The outer world is changing.  The only thing that is not changing and will never change is the sacred and holy place within you.  

The messaging we are receiving in all forms of the media is contributing to the separation we are experiencing now in ourselves and with each other.  We must wake up lest we become divided against ourselves.  Can you see that concepts of right and wrong are man made?  We have to search inside ourselves now to find “the way, the truth and the life.” It is in that place that you will find the answers to all your questions and the clarity that is so needed at this time.  It is in that place that we can reconnect to the oneness of all life and the unity of our humanity.  It is in that place that you raise the consciousness and find the power to rise above any outer circumstance and the peace that enables you to endure any outward condition. 

It is your holy essence, that which is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow which has been there since the beginning of time.  All the answers lie within you.  It is the gift of life—the treasured essence and clarity of your being.  You will find it and utilize it through inner exploration, meditation, quiet walks in nature, and being still with the Self.  That is the answer for these times in which we live.

We cannot count on the outer world to give us what we are seeking.  Our charge then is to realize our oneness with all of life and the peace and harmony that comes from that awareness.  Blessings then abound even in what seems like the darkness.  Truly, our richest life is lived from the inside out.  We find in the center of our being everything we’ve been seeking, including freedom, and we are at peace at last.
