LA BELIEVES IN LOVE

image

The purpose of my existence has been to love and be loved. I never questioned any other way of being. I simply knew to love. It mattered not the situation or how I was treated my choice was to love. At times when fear crept into my world I wrote poetry or took to my journal to make sense of others in my life being unkind. When I became a mother thirty-eight years ago the meaning of my being here was confirmed. To nurture and nourish with unconditional love was the key that unlocked the despair from yesterday.

There was a part of me that understood the natural essence of life and how to provide with my body through natural childbirth and breast feeding a cord that would sustain us both. This wonder in my first son was a miracle with my husband that we would create a total of four times. The memories I have stored away that I treasure from the very moment I met these babies has sustained me to know my purpose. I believe that they set the stage for what I do today in more ways than one can imagine. As a single mom my children kept me sane. I realized early that I never owned them and that I was simply the means of their existence and foundation.

I deeply loved the responsibilities that came with this new title I proudly wore that I was chosen to be the mother of Tory, Tina, Nicholas and Jessica. Dinner time was family time where we gathered together to share our day and to laugh. You may wonder if there was conflict, rebellion and disagreement between these siblings and society. I fool you not and share that we existed as a family bonded by a mother that saw no wrong in her children. Boundaries were a key ingredient in their world as they grew up. Do not think that they did not call to my attention the judgmental and critical attitude of their teachers. Still, I stood firm in my belief in my children no matter what.

Children learn by love and support which they received abundantly. Who they have grown to be in essence as husband, father, wife and mother is critical to how they were raised. The two youngest ones who are not married yet still have time to choose how they will approach the world of being a spouse or parent.

What they have accomplished today is their freedom to live in a world where many have fallen victim to drugs. Is this the reality of a society that has fallen victim to substances, due to the fact of pain, choice or a prearranged contract? Why does one choose to be addicted and another not? Only God knows the answer to that.

In reality, I am a child of an alcoholic but I chose not to be one. Is there a lesson here that I simply learned that I grasped at a young age? Can it be that what I was witness to was part of the plan? As we are all children at one time raised by our parents very early on, I wonder who is the teacher and who is the student?

Today as I blog my baby has turned thirty years old. I am amazed at how time is the one thing we can not stop or change or return to in our reality of life. Time does not wait for anyone. Children will grow up with or without love I imagine. Although I do believe as a mom that my greatest and only reason for being is to love these children under all circumstances.

Who I am today on this path that I travel is because of them, my husband and my parents. Many have travelled along with me and some have stayed while others ventured away. Know that we are all here to light the way for another with love.

Transformation is next…

Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway… We all have a mountain to climb!

There is a feeling of awareness in our personal daily possibilities which will lead us to our destiny. To find the truth and passion in a life’s goal is to find love and completion towards one’s destiny. One must accomplish love to return back to all that has already been deemed true. It is the love of self in life that opens the gates of freedom to be. Simply to be all that one can be like a star in the sky that is bright even in the night for all to behold. The light of love encompasses the beauty of love that cannot be denied. To believe in any other light or reason to see beauty is to deny the universe. One who is blind to love is blind to a true life experience and will live to learn again on earth.

To comprehend that love is light and light is love is to find a passion that ignites the love within. To accomplish respect and wonder at its power enables expansion which is belief of the process of life. These words by Leo Buscaglia are a truth in life. “Each of our acts makes a statement as to our own purpose.” To find ones purpose there is no where to look but within our hearts, thoughts and speech. If we see with the eyes of love, hear with the ears of love and speak with words of love we can only then find love for ourselves and for life. It is the totality of the completion of life lived in and with love that opens the gates of heaven on earth. There is wisdom to be gained from yesterday to absorb and to create today that which will allow tomorrow to manifest and set one free. This is the only way to live by bringing the past into the future intertwined with the present so that the wheel of life glows forever. It is total belief in what we think, say and do; yesterday and today that will manifest tomorrow.

Personally, I do not want to be upset about negative words inflicted on me by others. I have to work very hard to keep myself afloat in a life IAM striving for as a spiritual woman. Constantly, I repeat positive affirmations to clear my head of any negative words. I ask to be shown the way so that I may be fulfilled always and not to let despair be part of my existence. I believe now that my new beginnings will only start when I can accomplish constant positive thought by being accepting and loving of all. Negativity drains my life, my essence, my reason for being. I find that the lesson of patience is what I need to cling to for it is the resulting change and life IAM to live. I understand this and comprehend this to be the truth and unity of life. IAM one with the universe now and must believe in all IAM given. 

I embrace my thoughts of creativity with love and kindness daily. I see the beauty in all as I expand into the world of deep inner wisdom. I find the need to abundantly share with all as I become receptive to the fears of another. As a unit in the unity of life I have become one with all and love abounds in my soul as I bless the negative, fearful people in life that need to find peace, kindness and love within themselves first.

What nourishes me is being creative. It takes self-discipline to continue daily on a creative path. IAM blessed to have the greatest of gifts – TIME!  As I travel a mystical spiritual road filled with this inner wisdom to nourish and sustain me, I create new ideas and learn the cleansing of yesterday is the only way for tomorrow to be pure. Daily I look at the world with the eyes of love and try to calm the fears of all. I have been given the ability to realize materially I have all one can ever need. It is this new beginning in life that IAM drawn to as it feeds my spiritual and mental capacities. I believe much is not necessary to obtain in life but the search for truth and honesty. To in any form simply to help another is my goal. Through books, writing, speech or a thought of love it is all about the strength and power of words. I believe IAM a woman of words at this age in my life. I refer to myself as totally alternative in belief because IAM of good health and detached by choice in a life that I adore daily because of a connection to the Universe; God, Mother Nature’s beauty, Angels, Archangels, Spirit Guides, Ancestors and totem animals. Today, I consider myself as a woman who observes life.

It is the emotions of life that cause me to dig deep within to feel the sorrow in life that exists which creates pain and this cannot be denied. It is this pain I crave to help another release. It seems so small that any act of love will grow and prosper in life to the brightest of lights for another when love is expressed. The acceptance of this belief that love is needed allows love to fill me to bursting. I can only be a vehicle in life that can travel the roads with the keys of life opening the doors that are waiting to allow love in by the knowledge IAM given. I believe it is this knowledge and wisdom IAM here to share that is as necessary as the air I breathe.

OUR INNER WISDOM WAITS FOR US TO SEEK IT OUT…

There are many voices within that we tend to listen to  but the inner wisdom of love we possess will lead us to the voice of our truth. When we adhere to this truth a miracle is granted and we accept with love deep within to become protected  by the vastness of the skies and the warmth of the earth. That is when we can choose to believe we are safe! One must seek out this inner wisdom and a way of life that fills the soul with passion and a life one can love living daily. Life is love because God is love and one must learn this to be able to learn of their destiny. There is no reason for pain, dis-ease and struggle or fear in life when one accepts that love clears the way.

Deceit, lies and belief in betrayal are toxic to all. We have become a society that allows adultery behavior to be normal, as well as any form of abuse. To believe as such means this person is being adulterous or an abuser. It is simply not nice to betray or abuse anyone. We all need to stop and respect one another and trust that something is missing in our lives when we believe its okay to do so. Know that another person will not be able to fix that which aches from inside you. Honesty, communication and truth mixed with the eyes of love are necessary in life. Find the love for yourself that rests within to release the pain and know there is more to life.

Many believe that they have a reason to betray or abuse another but what if you need to heal from your past, grieve prior loss and know who you are as a means of manifesting your truth. “The Work” that we all need to to do is to find our passion and that which feeds and nourishes our soul. Another cannot do this for you. Making a commitment of love is sacred and the act of forgiveness which needs to be created begins first with oneself. There are many sides to the story of each life, many people, different forms of abuse and secrets that need to be taken into consideration by all parties. Seeking another complicates relationships when its lust or a replacement for ones issues in life. Abuse of any kind is not acceptable. We all have issues we carry from our childhood! There comes a time in life when we need to make peace with them and move forward to heal by blessing and releasing the past.

No one has the authority to judge another. No one knows God’s plan. However, one can be educated by books, meditating, prayer, journaling and therapy. Even the simple act of walking outside around your neighborhood, going to a park or beach can release the fears of the mind. Breathe in fresh air and be healed, hug a tree to ground yourself, take a bath to release negative energy, or just be of service.

In my book, Making Believers: Connect to the Light within, I shared the following:

Prayer … “To Pray is to feel loved.”

Meditation … “Closing your eyes can help you to see”

Respect … “Treat others as you wish to be treated.” 

Approval … “To love yourself is to love all.

Creativity … “To be happy you must fulfill your dreams.”

Faith … “Live and let live.”

Love … “Give only love or silence, not anger, in return.”

Laughter … “Joy and love bring laughter to your soul.”

Walk … “Be witness to the beauty of Nature.”

Kindness … “To inflict pain on another inflicts pain on you.”

I would like to add the following today; 

Forgiveness … “To forgive heals you and sets you free.”

Awareness … “Stay present to stay in the light.”
