The Gift Within

The day my father left this world he left in mid sentence as he was talking to me. Thus began a new world, a world I knew nothing about. And it was a different world then or so it seemed. The world seemed safer but how could that be? We lived in a murderous world even then, a world of assassinations and our young boys being maimed and killed in Viet Nam. It was the beginning of the news being broadcast into our living rooms and that was shocking and horrifying enough.

Could we have ever imagined the continued atrocities we as a nation and the whole world would continue to live through? As we make our way through our own lives and our own personal shocks and losses we as a collective grieve for our brothers and sisters all over the world. We grieve together. We pray together. We try to make sense of the senseless together.

We are weary and grief stricken. We are finding ourselves in a world that is filled with hate and violence. These things have always existed but we are here now living at this particular time, each and every one of us. How do we turn anger and hatred and fear into love? How do we have hope in our hearts in a world gone mad?

Maybe we need to be kinder. Maybe we need to be more loving. Maybe we need to stop judging even the small things. Maybe we need to pray more than ever. And maybe we need to always believe that the beauty of love must be more powerful than any act of hate.

We are living in an extremely powerful time. This is why there is so much going on. Is it a fight between good and evil? Yes it is. As the powers that be continue to try to weaken us through acts of terror we have within each of us a particular gift waiting to be expressed. This is the time to go within. This is the time to bring it forth. Whatever whispers you are hearing about your soul’s purpose, listen. Bring it forth!

Nature soothes and heals and resonates with our true being. Use everything you have, prayer, music, meditation, healing, children, animals, your loved ones.

This particular, individual, unique, personal, sacred gift has an unimaginable power. This gift will emerge and merge with every other magnificent gift and the magnitude of this will change the world. It is changing the world. The time is now.

We will continue to pray and we will continue to hold our center. We will be our highest and best spiritual selves. We were made for this and we shall continue to remember who we are and why we are here.

In deepest sympathy for all enduring such heartless suffering.

May love and peace one day prevail upon this earth.

The Great Awakening

This is the time of The Great Awakening. This is the time of truths being revealed. This is the time where chaos in our country and around the world is designed to distract you from the most important work of all. A few weeks ago I was awakened early and began to have a life review as I was lying there trying to go back to sleep. This was the beginning of a day that revealed more and more. This was preparation for what was to come during Holy Week.

We are living the Divine Plan. How much we allow ourselves to see is a spiritual process that we are living and hopefully cultivating each and every day. I have had some undeniable truths revealed to me over Holy Week. This is a very powerful time. This is a time where we are being granted the grace to see things that are so incredible about ourselves, our world and beyond that it will take some deep reflection and time to assimilate lifetimes of information that have everything to do with our soul missions today.

Receiving spiritual truths is not an easy process. It is deeply emotional and takes your full commitment to see it through to the very best of your ability. This is when the Divine Partnership moves into high gear. You can sit around astounded and wait for more to be revealed but truly this is the time to take action and fully step into your spiritual power. This is a new step, one never taken before. This is a leap. This is the time. We are the ones we have been waiting for.

This morning I was led to my own story that has everything to do with my further awakening during this Holy Week. We all help to spark one another’s remembrance of who we are and why we have come. Perhaps if you read my story, as far out as it may seem, it will awaken you to more of your own incredible spiritual story. As I was guided to read it this morning I was given more much more understanding of how it all fits together and where I am to go from here.

I share it here with love.
