It’s okay to take a few minutes to close your eyes and just breathe so you won’t say something you don’t want to say. It’s okay to feel like you want to say something you don’t want to say. It’s okay not to beat yourself up. You are divine. You are perfect just the way you are, in every moment of every day.
It’s okay to feel sadness coming up from your core and not be able to stop yourself from the tears that follow. Cry. Cry a lot if that’s what you need. Then, wipe your eyes and blow your nose and remind yourself you are Loved beyond measure and you are powerful beyond measure and you have the ability to create anything and everything you desire.
It’s okay that all your plans and dreams are not manifesting yet. Focus on how you feel right now and create the feeling of dreams manifested. Then, do the next inspired thing, without resistance. That may mean taking out the trash or cleaning the toilets. Whatever it is, be in the moment with gratitude. Have fun. You are the director of the show.
It’s okay to feel any way you feel. If something feels “bad” then shift your focus or your perspective or change your thought about it. Change how you feel about it.
It’s ok to be strong. It’s ok to be weak. It’s okay to be everything you are in any given moment.
It’s okay to be YOU!
Much Love!! oxoo
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 a phrase that anyone who’s into self-help/spirituality probably hears a lot. When you don’t “know” what to do, “Just do the next right thing.”
Sometimes it eludes us completely, other times, it is crystal clear.
For me, during the Covid-19 health crisis, it is the latter. I am a Physician Assistant who has worked in Emergency Medicine for many years. Through a series of synchronous events, prior to the crisis becoming the crisis it is, I found myself laid off my job with pay for 3 months. As I was looking for temporary positions while plans were laid for a permanent position, I was guided to serving in NYC.
I am here to be of service in whatever way I can be. Right now, it means taking care of people in a place and time where they need it so desperately. I am not afraid. I am not, at the same time, burying my head in the sand about the risks. I deeply feel that I am protected with all of the PPE available to me (which they have plenty of now) and my energetic disposition of “all is well.” My plan is to bring my expertise and Love to everyone I encounter.
Walk courageously today, then maybe tomorrow too.
Much Love to all of you!
I love creating my life. I love imagining what it is I’d most like to do with my days, of the experiences I’ll have and people I’ll connect with. I love putting myself there and feeling the excitement of being in places where there are many others just like me, all sharing and growing and enjoying.
There’s one part of this process, though, that I am only now beginning to really take part in in the way I know I’ve needed to in order for all I desire to come about. That is the experience of true ease and joy along the way.
I’ve been waiting for this state of being to come in the way it is now.
Lately, I’ve been feeling very different. Different in the sense that, I’m still me, yet I’m a new and improved version of me. I feel calmer, even more so than before (and I’m quite chill to begin with lol). This calm is infused with more love, deeper love, than before and it is unconditional.
I just feel great!
Much Love to you all!!
I had the privilege of spending the last four days with other beautiful souls sharing our hearts and growing and expanding in love at an NDE retreat. It was not only for those who’d had an NDE but also for others who have had Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STE’s) and those who were seeking answers to their spiritual questions.
At at lovely hotel on the ocean, we gathered together to share our individual stories and support one another in the inevitable growth that resulted. Our ability, as a group, to show unconditional love for one another was incredibly inspiring. Many did not know anyone at first but by the end of the weekend everyone was embraced and known to everyone else as family.
What was the magic of all of this? How could a group of adults bare their hearts and share their souls with one another without fear? Love. Love was the fuel, the glue, the elixir. We all simply had unconditional love for one another. We were a microcosm of the world, contained in a little room in a hotel, laughing and crying and discovering new aspects of ourselves with the support of the universe embracing us all.
Feeling so much love!! oxo
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.
