Reclaim Your Power Through Conscious Choice

March 30, 2009 · Filed Under Higher Consciousness · 1 Comment 

What does it mean to Reclaim Your Power? When was the last time that you chose to do something just because it pleased you to do it for yourself? I’m talking about doing things that harm no one or thing so let’s be clear about that.  Did you wonder what others would think about you when you did it? Did it bring you a sense of joy and peace when it was done? How did you feel? Was it a good feeling, one of self empowerment or self mastery? Was this CHOICE CONSCIOUSLY made?

Conscious choice is what is missing in our lives. It is time to reclaim our power and remember that we create our life through our thoughts and choices. When was the last time you ended your day and couldn’t remember what you did? Being aware of what you are choosing in each moment is part of reclaiming your power.

What lens do you use when you make your choices? Do you give the choice much thought or is it done on auto pilot? If you use auto pilot let me propose a different lens to use. I have used the lens of LOVE, GRATITUDE and SERVICE for a few years now and once I began this consciously my life began to shift. I consciously chose to pursue my spiritual path rediscovering who I am and why I am here. What a beautiful journey it has been for me as I chose to reclaim my power with the help of God/Creator/Spirit/ Source, whatever name you use for the ONE.

I am reading Soul Communication Opening Your Spiritual Channels for Success and Fulfillment by Dr. Zhi Gang Sha right now and was delighted to see the lens that he uses is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, FORGIVENESS and SERVICE. He also uses GRATITUDE consciously to thank Creator for the many blessings in his life each moment. I have also come to know that unless one forgives oneself and others growth in consciousness, feelings of joy, peace, harmony, abundance, prosperity and health can often be blocked. So I have now consciously added FORGIVENESS as part of the lens I use to make my choices. How hard is it to shift and create a new lens for decision making? It is simple yet our humanness can make it complicated. I choose simplicity now. How about you?

Love Beyond Measure

December 3, 2008 · Filed Under Self-Healing · Comment 

LOVE. Is there ever too much LOVE? During this time of year many traditions and rituals are remembered and celebrated. We light candles, sing hymns of praise, cook special meals, recall and tell stories of what it was like thousands of years ago. As we listen to the stories we often imagine what it would be like to have lived during those times. This is true regardless of the religious or spiritual tradition that is being honored… Is it not?

Where does LOVE belong in all of these stories? Where does LOVE fit? How is it discussed in the context of the story, ritual, song, meal or celebration? Have we lost the true meaning of the celebration? Have we lost something so precious and powerful that we have forgotten the very core or essence of the gift that was given? Let us spend a few moments on the gift – the gift of LOVE.

LOVE is the greatest transformer of all. This is LOVE that transcends all time and space. It is LOVE that is available to all life, beyond measure, without condition or limits. Where is this type of LOVE found? Within you. It is always there, always has been and always will be. This is the LOVE that is the essence of who we are. It is found in our souls or heart space. No, it is not seen. It is felt if we allow, accept and own it. It is there for the asking and taking if we choose to receive it. It is what sustains us in times of sorrow, doubt and uncertainty. It takes the place of FEAR if we let it. It is what creates a true environment of healing, acceptance, forgiveness and compassion for self and others. It is what has been given freely as FREE WILL CHOICE has been given. LOVE IS. It can be considered a form of vibrational healing for LOVE is vibrating at a much higher level than fear.

How do you feel LOVE beyond measure or experience this type of LOVE? Let’s experience it now. Find a quiet space and BREATHE in and out. Imagine a beautiful white light of Divine LOVE entering on your in breath and retain it within as you breathe out through your nose. This light is always present within; however, bring it forth now into your consciousness. Some refer to this light as the Christ Consciousness for it is Christ that brought this level of LOVE into pure and human consciousness. Others who have demonstrated this level of LOVE are: the Buddha, Ghandi, Mother Theresa, Mother Mary, All other Ascended Masters and Archangels to name a few. Continue to breathe in and out normally until you feel your thoughts quieting. Give your thoughts a “time out” for this period of time. They will return when you are finished if you choose.

BREATHE in and out and quiet your mind. Once your thoughts are quiet, ASK Beloved Mother-Father God/Creator/Spirit/All that is ONE/Source, whoever you name the ONE, with your heart, with LOVE for all life to show you what LOVE beyond measure FEELS like. Allow, accept and own that you are ready and deserving to receive this LOVE. It will come if you choose to receive it. It is beyond measure. It is beyond the feeling of romantic LOVE. It can bring tears of JOY, HAPPINESS, and AWE. It can be humbling. It is there for each one of us to receive if we allow it. All we have to do is ASK.

This is one of the most powerful feelings and experiences that brings forth feeling the ONENESS of ALL. It brings forth similarities and erases differences for in the experience of LOVE BEYOND MEASURE we are ONE. There is no room for fear, doubt, and uncertainty. There is only room for what is possible for the greatest good. It is there for each one of us to experience and BE. LOVE is the greatest transformer of all for in LOVE and the highest light, your higher consciousness, all things are possible.

With LOVE and LIGHT,

How Powerful Are You?

October 20, 2008 · Filed Under Self-Healing · Comment 

POWER and POWERFUL, these are words for you to contemplate and incorporate in your daily meditation. Let’s see how Webster’s dictionary describes POWER. It is an “ability to act or produce an effect; possession of control, authority, or influence over others”. POWERFUL is defined as “having great power, prestige, or influence”. For our discussion let’s think of POWER as having an “ability to act or produce an effect”.

When you see or hear these words what FEELINGS do you experience. Are they easy words for you to use when you talk about yourself? Look at them again and notice what is going on with your body. Feel the emotions that emerge. What are you thinking right now? Do you feel that you have the ability to act or produce an effect? It doesn’t really matter right now what that effect is, rather focus on whether you feel that you can do it. Can you? If you answer yes to this question then please begin to think of yourself as having POWER and being a POWERFUL being for if it is nothing more than creating changes in what you believe, think, say or do, you are acting to produce an effect, are you not? You are changing you, this is the effect!

The truth is that for great change to occur outwardly in the environment first change must occur in your inner being-what you think, feel, say, believe or do. This is where ALLOWING, ACCEPTING AND OWNING the POWER you are begins. It is your choice to make. How badly do you wish for great leaders in our country to be elected? How badly do you want the systems and structures to change? How much are you willing to change for this to happen? Are you ready to accept responsibility for what you are creating? Are you ready to receive the blessings that can flow your way without limitations? Are you ready to accept that there is a higher POWER or CONSCIOUSNESS that supports you? Are you ready to BE the POWERFUL SPIRITUAL BEING THAT YOU ARE RIGHT NOW? If your answer is yes then know that it is time to RECLAIM YOUR POWER-reclaim the truth and wisdom that is available to you in each moment.

Know that you are POWERFUL spiritual beings having wonderful human experiences and it is time to wake up. It is time to return to the truth of who you are. It is time to embrace and love yourself, forgive yourself and be compassionate with yourself for then you can BE this for others. This is when true self healing, spiritual healing, change and transformation can take place. It doesn’t matter whether you are a rock star, politician, stay at home mom or dad, student, shut in, homeless or wealthy person, or just a kid having fun. We are all part of the whole connected by something greater. It is time to remember who we are. Start with you then reach out to others. As you change, others around you will benefit. Focus on what brings your heart JOY and listen to your heart as you make your choices. Acknowledge and accept the POWER that YOU are. This is a choice you can make!

Self-Healing Through Forgiveness

October 7, 2008 · Filed Under Self-Healing · Comment 

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” Mahatma Gandhi

Indian political and spiritual leader (1869 – 1948)

What does it mean to forgive? Is it words, thoughts, emotions, or actions? Is it all of the above or none of the above? When you think of forgiving someone how do you view it? How willing are you to change your beliefs? What does forgiving yourself or others have to do with healing yourself? How open are you to think and act differently; creating a new spiritual awareness or consciousness awareness?

Mahatma Gandhi gives us much to reflect upon. It takes strength and courage to forgive someone who has harmed or hurt you or someone you love. When you have harmed or hurt someone else it also takes strength and courage to forgive YOU. Oftentimes this is more difficult. When you remember the experience or situation what do you feel in your mind, body and soul? How does your heart feel right now? Some of you may have experienced health issues as a direct or indirect result of holding onto strong emotions or energies of anger, betrayal, disappointment, hurt, resentment, hate, guilt, unforgiveness, unworthiness, self- punishment or fear. Many believe that all aspects of our minds, bodies, souls/spirits have consciousness in every cell and fiber of our beings. These energies or emotions can be stored for lifetimes.

Now, once you accept this belief what if you connected with the inner child within you who is suffering and wounded and what if you began to heal it through forgiveness? First, begin with self-forgiveness and then forgive others. What does it take to forgive and shift the negative energies? It takes a desire and willingness to change. Help is available; you do not have to do this alone. For example, if you believe in God, a higher power or higher consciousness, then you have prayer or meditation. Seek a spiritual coach or counselor to walk this journey with you. You are not alone.

Imagine what it can feel like within your mind, body, soul/spirit as the energies within every cell and fiber of your being begin to shift consciousness. If you are experiencing physical challenges or illnesses, then imagine your body, mind, soul/spirit being more open and receptive to healing when you feel you are worthy of love and good health and be sure you no longer hold the negative beliefs or energies. This is something that you can do for yourself. It takes courage and strength to say, “I choose to change what I believe and I am ready to forgive myself and others so that my life is more positive and balanced. These negative energies no longer serve my greatest good.”

Forgiving oneself and others truly takes great strength. The status quo remains the easier route. Remember, that with God all things are possible.
