The Way of Love

Reflecting back, I see now what an expansive year I had working with love.  I don’t think I really understood the way this lesson flowed through so many of my experiences, even when I was consciously aware it was the focal point of what I was currently working through.  Selfless love and sacrifice for another, the pain of losing the greatest love I’ve ever experienced, unrequited love, recognizing the patterns of distorted love in my life, learning how to hold myself in love on an even deeper level, allowing my heart to open and receive unconditional love from others, and falling even more deeply in love with all that I am.

Unconditional love asks us to accept all for what it is without judgement or expectation however the human experiences attaches a diverse range of emotions to the concept of love causing us to fear love, desperately long for love, or to feel unworthy of love in any form.  How can we move through our experiences in a way that uncovers the truth?  How can we open our hearts to allow love in when it causes discomfort and pain?  It is in having the courage to face these shadow aspects of unresolved energy, leaning into the heartache and limiting beliefs, and allowing compassion and grace to lead the way.

Like the spiral of life, I too continue to work through this journey of love.  We are made from the essence of love and when we remember the heartbeat of all that we are, we begin to see the gifts that love provides.  As I work to face the parts of myself still in the shadows I pause to ask, how can I love myself in this moment?  How can I support the way of love?  It is in the choices we make in each moment that create the opportunity to love, to be loving, to love ourselves and to share our love with others.  It is in honoring love that we open our hearts to receive and to remember who we are.  To be the light that shines brightly. To be the hope and the love we so desperately seek.  Coming home to our hearts and the essence of love that we are. It begins within.

Meeting Yourself With Love

I read a quote this morning that resonated deeply with where I have found myself the last few months.

Be gentle as you are meeting the parts of yourself you have been at war with

The last 2 ½ months have called me to turn deeply inward, completely removing myself from my work, my relationships and my life.  I didn’t think there could be an ever greater level of isolation possible but when your soul is ready for profound transformation, nothing is off the table.  

Profound transformation.  Like pandora’s box, the shadows so neatly suppressed in the dark caverns of my being demanded to be free, to be held, to be loved.  To say the overwhelming intensity of their presence was challenging is the greatest understatement of the century.  I couldn’t ignore them any longer.  It was time and even though I didn’t feel like it at all, I was ready.

There is a certain level of bravery that comes with doing this work.  Sitting with myself and my darkness has often times been harder than some of my most painful experiences. 

How do you hold yourself in love when you are overwhelmed with shame? 

How do you hold compassion for yourself when the weight of disappointment brings you to your knees? 

How do you embrace all that you are when you are mourning the person you once were? 

How do you know you are loved and supported when you feel so alone? 

How do you have hope when you can’t see the light?

The shadow can not exist with out the light.

Piece by piece I choose to embrace my shadows.  Leaning into the discomfort of what they bring.  Allowing myself to feel the pain, confusion, anger, sadness and defeat.  Working through them one at a time, peeling back the layers to discover what is asking to be healed.  What limiting beliefs I hold that are not in alignment with Divine truth and working with them to shift my perspective.  Offering forgiveness to not only myself but others for the pain and trauma I have endured.  Allowing myself to see the painful truth of my experiences, no longer gaslighting myself into believing my perceptions aren’t real.  Learning to trust my intuition again.  Accepting when I have been wrong or behaved from a place of ego, pain or distortion.  Remembering that I am still Divine even when I am not perfect.  Discovering who I am today and allowing who I was to be honored and released.  It is from this place of acceptance and embrace that I emerge with the strength to move forward with an open heart.  It is from this space that I fully surrender to the Divine, filled with hope for what’s to come, gratitude for the abundance in my life and unconditional love for all that meets me along the way.

By shining my light and holding compassion for myself, I am able to meet myself with love.

Honoring All That You Are

Looking back at this past year, I am humbled by the tremendous weight of my experiences both painful and expansive.  Around every corner I faced yet another soul expanding opportunity for growth, acceptance, discovery and surrender.  As we move through our journey here on earth it is so easy to get caught up in the motion of life, forgetting the greater scope and deeper meaning to all we encounter.  When we shift our focus inward we begin to discover who we truly are.  What brings us joy and what triggers our pain.  As we identify and begin to break down the cycles and facade of what once was we often find ourselves in this voidal space.  Stillness in the silence, ever present in the moment not knowing what’s to come but knowing in your heart that all is in order with the Divine plan.   

As this chapter comes to a close, I am in gratitude for the opportunity to look back at my experiences and honor the journey I have taken.  Honor the me I discovered along the way and choosing to embrace the shadows and the light.  I acknowledged and accepted a lot of really uncomfortable parts of myself but I also fell in love even more deeply with who I am.  I am learning how to open my heart to receive the blessings and abundance the universe always brings into my life, choosing to let go of my fears and judgements and surrender fully.  It’s not easy, I am a recovering perfectionist who likes to be prepared, but I am choosing me.   I am choosing to honor all that I am.   

What have you discovered about yourself over the last year? 

What are you choosing to embrace and what are you choosing to release as you step into the new year? 

How do you want to show up in the world and what do you desire to call into your experience moving forward? 

As you honor this chapter of your life and turn your gaze to the future, now is the perfect time to reflect on all you have experienced, what you have learned, how you have grown and all you have accomplished while identifying the life you want to create.

Choose To Be The Witness

Have you ever stopped to notice the way you view the world around you? Not just the obvious, in your face emotion inducing reactions but the subtle opinions you hold that speak quietly in your mind, so entrenched in your beliefs that you barley notice them flash through your consciousness. The judgements you not only hold around others but the judgements you hold about yourself.

What defines good or bad, right or wrong? For each person that defined spectrum varies based on cultural and societal programs, religious beliefs, family upbringing, life experiences, unresolved karma and more. But are those definitions ultimately true?

Unconditional love is the acceptance of all for what it is without judgement or expectation. An observation of what is.

What we judge in others is often a judgement we hold about ourself. When we shift into observation, we have the opportunity to see the divine plan in motion, zooming out to see each being, including ourself, as the divine expression of Gods light within the human experience. In the heart of source there is no good, bad, right or wrong, it simply is. We are in co-creation with the Divine having this experience in the third dimensional realm. Step back in wonder to see the magic unfolding around you in each moment. Let go and allow. Become the observer and surrender to love.

What Are You Choosing To Create?

I was having a discussion with a friend recently about how powerful our thoughts and beliefs are in creating our reality. The Law of Resonance reminds us that like attracts like and when we become a vibrational match to a person, place, experience, idea or belief, we become a magnet pulling it in.

How often do you stop to observe your thoughts and beliefs? Sometimes these are so deeply seated in our being we don’t even realize the ways in which they surface. Look at what is happening outside of you and you will begin to see the energy you hold within you.

Manifestation attempts not working?

What limiting beliefs do you hold around what you are calling in?

Noticing a pattern of partners and friends that seem to trigger the same feelings within you?

What limiting beliefs are they supporting that you hold about yourself?

Are you cycling the same experiences from the past through your thoughts and stories?

Where have you created a limiting belief around your experience and how can you let go to let healing in?

How do you speak to yourself about yourself? How do you speak about others?

Where are you holding judgement and what limiting belief is restricting you from opening to love?

Become the observer of your thoughts and beliefs. Notice what is being attracted into your life and discover the unresolved energy you hold that is creating your current reality. Be gentle. Be open to seeing things differently. Allow your heart to soften and heal. You have the power to create anything you want in your life. Begin Within.

If It’s Meant To Be, It Will Find A Way

Trusting the Divine plan can be one of the hardest parts of our journey. How many times have you asked or even begged for your hearts desires only to be faced with silence? I can honestly say I have repeatedly crashed into this brick wall time and time again, turning to the Divine in anger and frustration then ultimately succumbing to the limiting beliefs I hold that I’m not good enough, I’m not worthy, I’m a failure, what’s the point of trying.

What if I am being asked to pause. What if I am not seeing what’s happening beneath the surface. What if all of my perceived failures are actually building the foundation of what IS coming. What if I am being redirected to something better. What if this is an opportunity to heal. What if I let go of expectation. What if I stop trying to control the outcome and simply choose to surrender to the Divine plan.

What is meant for you will always find a way. There is nothing you can do to stop what is divinely planned for you and there is nothing you can do to make something happen that is not. Trust that you are here for a reason. Trust that you are held and supported each step of the way. Trust that all is unfolding for your highest potential. Let go of control. Let go of the disappointment. Let go of your own timeline and trust the timing of the Divine. You are made from love and love will guide each step of the way. Follow your heart being present in each moment and when you choose to live authentically in alignment with all that you are and all that is, you will see the magic of the Divine unfold abundantly for you in ways you never could have imagined.

Healing Through The Experience

I’m working on healing from past experiences and as much as I move through the memories identifying limiting beliefs and holding myself in love, it isn’t until I am face with a triggering experience again that an opportunity presents to put healing into motion.

It is in the active reaction that you can observe what is happening within you. What belief systems you default to even when you have been working to shift and form new beliefs through your healing process. Acknowledging what e-motions are coming up for you and truly seeing yourself and others through the lens of the observer.

You have a choice in that moment of awareness to continue down the path of old patterns and behaviors or to stop, shift and move forward from your heart with compassion and love.

This happened to me today. I was triggered, unprovoked and I lashed out in anger around past experiences. It wasn’t deserved, it was hurtful and was misplaced. I couldn’t stop myself in the moment even though I was actively observing the experience unfold. I took a moment in private to digest what had just occurred, took full responsibility for my behavior and went directly to face my shame and apologize.

Part of healing is being vulnerable enough to admit when you are wrong and hurtful to others. Being vulnerable with yourself to hold those parts of your being in love. It’s ok to not be perfect in your healing process. Sometimes the greatest change happens in the heart of the moment where we can put into action the tools and perspectives we have gained. Lean into the discomfort of your experiences and embrace the gift of healing they bring

What If You Choose To Be Who You Are

How many times in life have you made yourself small, dimmed your light or filtered the expression of your authentic self in order to fit in? How often have you moved through life as the shadow of someone else, suppressing all that you are from leading the way? Fear has a way of stopping us from living the life we desire. Conforming to the expectations of others draining the joy from our hearts and the passion from our souls. But what if there was nothing to fear? What if you are exactly what this world needs? What if being your authentic self opened the way to everything you desire? What if you choose to be who you are?

There is only one you and you are exactly who you were designed to be. I invite you to step into all that you are. Follow your heart and chase your dreams. Let go of fear and be free. The choice is yours and I believe in you. Shine friend, shine your beautiful light. The world is a better place because you are here. I love you 💖

Let Go & Go With The Flow

So often we find ourselves in resistance to surrendering to the Divine. Old programs and beliefs tell us that in doing so we have to give up our choices and our desires. Many hold the belief that to surrender means to live a life in service at the cost of happiness and prosperity.

What if those beliefs are simply an illusion?

What if choosing to surrender to Divine Will actually allows us to have everything and more?

What if the flow of the Divine takes us to a state of joy we never imagined possible?

Our highest potential sits within the heart of the Divine plan. By allowing ourselves to surrender and allow, we don’t have to choose between one or the other. We get to be filled with peace, joy and love while being of service to the light. Practice letting go and shift into wonder as you allow the Divine to guide you to exactly where you need to be in each moment and observe the shift within you as you flow within the light 💖

The Choice Is Always Yours

In each moment, we actively create our reality which is a reflection of the energy we hold. What you choose to believe will always be true within your reality and the universe will always support what you choose to believe. There is no right or wrong, good or bad. It’s about co-creation and expansion of consciousness through experiences.

If we choose to experience low vibrational pain and disappointment then that is the experience we will have.

If we want to experience something different, then we must shift our perspective.

Choose to create from a different vibration, from a different point of view. Observe your thoughts, they are not who you are but simply energy that flows through your mental body. If it is not filled with unconditional love then it is distortion – an aspect, unresolved karma, a childhood wound, or a limiting belief.

Everything can shift and change at any given moment.

All creation can be transformed.

The choice is always yours.
