With a great group of people gathering weekly to share insights and make a small positive difference in the world! Love these guys!!
We’ve all heard the saying “There are no guarantees in life.” Dying while in labor with my daughter was the last thing I expected to happen that morning. I had the expectation of a safe delivery, but that expectation was not met. I had all these plans for my life afterward, but those plans changed, and in a big way.
This virus has no consideration for the outline you have of your life. It is here, and may not be going anywhere. Consider that for a moment. A virus that we know little about, one there is no vaccine or at this point, no medications to treat, may be a continuous threat for the foreseeable future. Our lives have been fundamentally altered in one foul swoop, leaving many reeling, wondering how they are going to manage themselves now.
Our personal and professional lives, in some cases, have been turned upside down. From the cashier at any store in America to the physician (or physician assistant in my case ;), the financial impact of this pandemic is significant, for some irreversibly damaging to their lively hood.
But, I ask you, is this a “bad” thing?
We are here to expand in awareness of who we are. We are here to connect with ourselves in a fundamental way so we may then better connect with one another. It is through our connections that we grow and become Who We Are. Sometimes things need to be shaken up in a big way for this to happen. No matter the source of this virus, whether you believe the scientists or the conspiracy theorists, its here. My question is, what are you going to do with the time you have on this earth, right now? Are you going to continue on in the same way as before? My guess is the world won’t let you. None of us are going to be able to, and that’s a good thing.
Focusing on what we have gained from this virus being present at this time in our lives, rather than what it has taken, completely turns our experience around. We go from the perception of loss to one of gain. We have gained time either alone, or with family. We have gained time to consider where we are in our lives and where we’ve always wanted to be. What is your hearts desire? What do you want to do that you haven’t done yet because fear has kept you from it?
Now. Now is the time to make the changes that will allow for greater growth and spiritual expansion. Fighting the changes, lamenting about how life will never be the same, keeps you stuck in the old when all your soul wants is to let the new rush in.
Say “YES” to your life and your life will step up to meet you. Every. Single. Time.
Much Love to you !! xox
This is something I’m currently processing, feeling through to allow for whatever message that may be there to come forth.
I love taking a step outside early in the morning, while it’s still dark and silent. I can see the stars in the sky, and Orion is always to my right. It brings me comfort to stare at it and feel the energy of my body in response to it. I do have a visceral response, which is a reflection of our deep interconnectedness with all there is, seen and unseen.
As my eyes were moving slowly across the sky toward where the sun is to rise shortly, I watched as a plane climbed silently through some light clouds and flew high above. My gaze fell back toward the clouds, when I noticed they were not stagnant. The sky was undulating like a wave. It reminded me of the space I was in during my NDE where the dense particles came together in waves at times…
I looked back at the several shining lights above me. These lights are very often there at night and do not move with the rest of the stars. They are some sort of craft, I ‘m not sure what. Maybe weather monitors…one of them moved closer to me, strangely as if to say “yes, you did see that.” Lol. It’s made my whole day even better.
After watching two of Will Smith’s movies this week I feel like hugging him hugely. Actually, I feel like hugging the writers and directors of the movies too. In fact, everyone involved gets a huge hug. I am literally transformed.
The first film was Collateral Beauty. Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. I was brought to a place that I’ve never allowed myself to go before in the years following my death. Will’s depiction of the struggle between dealing with the death of a loved one and living life without them brought me to a new place in my understanding of my own death. Fear kept his character from reconciling the two entities and from reconciling himself in his new life without his daughter.
I spent years and years fearful of being me. I rejected my NDE and the profound entity it was and is and what it meant to me. I denied myself the love of it and in effect rejected me. I was slowly dying inside, until I reconciled the truth within myself, the truth being love is it. In order to do that I had to acknowledge my death. I died. It wasn’t someone else that died, it was me. I no longer separate myself from that truth. I am that truth, I am the experience. The experience is me, and I’m divine. WE are divine.
There is such incredible beauty in every thing associated with death and with life. All the swirling decisions and forgotten birthdays and lost loves and found treasures, all the divine light and eternal truths and undeniable connection with everyone and everything is just….magnificent. There are no words to describe just how magnificent it all is. Bringing that level of magnificence into this life is what creates a beautiful life with a lot of collateral beauty!
The second film was 7 pounds. The complete self-sacrifice of a man who’s “done wrong” is beyond comprehension. That is the ultimate act of love and compassion and heroism. That movie humbled me to the point of awe. My reason for being here has taken on a new energy. I have rededicated myself to sharing love and helping those who need help find ways to be that love. Everything I do is toward that end. There are no boundaries and no distractions. So, thank you Will Smith for giving me, little old me, the gift of insight and new beginnings.
