With the kickoff of the holiday season, Thanksgiving launches a time of reflection. To truly connect with the energy of this day, step quietly into your heart-space, sit back and observe. As human being, we tend to look at what we "don't have" or what we think may be missing in our lives that would provide true happiness and gratification.
THAT my brothers and sisters, can only come from you. Nothing outside of you will fill the void provided by connection to your very soul, heart and higher self. Give the gift of self-love, self-respect and forgiveness to YOURSELF. For the time being, as we all continue to evolve and step into our true selves, I have a request of you.
Every one of us has so very much to be thankful for. Clothes, food, transporation, housing and even water that we take for granted with each sip and every shower. Fill your heart with the joy of appreciating a bottle of water, a hot shower, a ride in your car, sitting on your couch and resting.
My request is a simple act of kindness from you to someone else, every single day. I'm up for it! Who will be joining me?
Love and Light,
Each one of us is very much needed and we all have our role to play adding to the success of the whole.
In the great symphony of life, we all have important parts to play. While some people are best suited to be conductors or soloists, their contributions would be diminished considerably without the individual musicians that lend their artistry to the fullness of an orchestra. The magical accents of the percussion section might sound random and out of place without the music they accompany. But any one member of an orchestra, doing less than their best at their particular part, can destroy the harmony of the whole piece, such is their importance. So although we may not receive the same amount or quality of attention as another, all of our contributions are valuable and integral to the success of the whole.
When we do our tasks well, we infuse them with our unique energy, making each act a gift. Each of our personalities and talents are suited to different roles of support. Even leaders and star performers support others in their own way. We can look around us at any moment to see that while we nurture some people with our work, others are supporting us with their gifts. Doing any job from this place within us allows us to do our part with humility and gratitude, while also learning lessons that move us steadily toward our goals.
When we can be fully present in every job that we do, we bring the fullness of our bodies, minds and spirits to the moment. Our contribution is enhanced by the infusion of our talents and abilities, and when we give them willingly, they attract the right people and circumstances into our experience. Anything we do begrudgingly limits the flow of our energy and closes us off from the good that is available to us in every situation. But by giving the best in us to make the world around us better, we open ourselves to receive the best from the universe in return.
Healing Light and Love,
We are all spiritual beings living in a human body even though our packaging seems different, we are very much the same.
We have all had the experience of encountering someone whose life seems so completely different from ours that we can almost imagine we have nothing in common. However, if we go deeper into observing, we will see that we all have the same things going on in our lives. It is as if our different lives are in essence the same gift, wrapped in an infinite variety of containers, wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows. Everybody experiences loss, grief, happiness, excitement, anger, and fear. Everyone can have money issues of one kind or another, and everyone struggles with difficult choices.
Our lives show up differently for each one of us because we each learn in different ways. One person may need to learn the value of money by having too little of it, while another may need to learn by having more than enough. We each learn about work and love, with experiences that are tailored to our particular perspective. Even as it appears that some people have it easy while others are in a continual state of struggle, the truth is that we are all learning, and it is very difficult to tell, when looking only at the exterior of a person, what’s going on inside.
This is one of the many things that can be so valuable about cultivating relationships with people from all walks of life. As we get to know those who seem so different from us, we get to really see how much of life’s challenges and joys are universal. We begin to look beyond the packaging of skin color, clothing preferences, and socioeconomic differences, hairstyles, and the cars we drive to the heart of the human experience. It is important to honor and value the differences in our packaging, but it is just as important to honor the gift of life.inside each one of us, and the fact that, no matter how different the packaging, the gift inside is the same. THUS..cultivating the acknowledgement or having conversation with total strangers is what creates a community..in your neighborhood, your country and in the world!...can you get that?..
Your response to all of life’s situations are what create a peaceful, fulfilling and joy filled life! Others lives experiences can support you in moving forward, in healing pain and in taking back your power .
Healing Love and Light,
