It has come to my attention that many do not believe as I do. I wonder if this is the inner workings of my soul that I have embraced to believe as I believe. My age is of no concern today because in the depths of my heart I always followed the desire to love and be loved. I imagined as a young girl that there was a vastness to life and learned early to be in love with the surroundings of Mother Nature on a daily basis. The warmth of the sun on my face, the freedom to walk around the block, to swim in the ocean, climb a tree or just look up at the stars and moon in the night. What do I believe that is so different from another stumps me.

I believe …

IAM a being of love and light. That I have a right, passion and purpose to be here. I trust that there is a process to life and that there is a Divine Intelligence that travels my path with me. I have the power to know that my thoughts words and action create my life. The emotions that flow from my heart fills me with compassion and love for others. As a mother and grandmother I know I must be of service to those in my family, my inner circle, as well as those outside my circle because we are all one. I have noticed that there is an inner wisdom that can be heard, seen and felt when I meditate daily. I know IAM an eternal being with a soul and that this body is just a vehicle for me to be like God and co-create my life with God! This wisdom that rests within is my right to discover and adhere to. I have lived many lifetimes and the lessons learned are part of my existence today. It is my right as a being with free will that I can travel through meditation, journey through the written word and learn as much as I desire to connect me with All That Is! I imagine that this is strange to others but comforting to me. I know that love is the key to life as well as forgiveness of myself and others. I embrace my life today as a life filled with wonder and amazing vibes of love because I believe that I live as a spiritual being in a place I call heaven on earth.

I cannot believe any other way and in doing that which inspires me to share with others I have studied simply to be able to empower those who desire love, light and healing in their lives.

Are your beliefs so different from mine? Take time to think what you believe is true for you.

The following is excerpted from Making Believers: Connect to the Light within…

SPACE

We all need a daily moment to find our space

To support one silently waiting is God’s grace

An accomplished moment of emptiness in ones mind

Shall renew ones ability with the desire to be kind

As one begins to dwell in time that is ones own

One can fulfill their destiny if they believe in the unknown

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.

The Fears of Life Eventually Lead us to our Path, Passion and Purpose….

 

I believe with my entire self that anything is possible. I believe in love and kindness for all. I believe I have loved deeply and will always love deeply. It is the part of me that best describes who IAM! There was a time though that I feared life. Why? In retrospect I was lost and scared. I needed to believe first in who I AM. I created a pattern of letting my own self, my truth disappear and be taken from me. Strange words to write I imagine for others to read and yet it is the essence of life one needs to learn to see the beauty of which one can be in life. I have learned that we are all beautiful in our own way. We just glow brighter when we realize our own beauty comes from within. To let another rob us of who we are is a lesson to accomplish in returning to oneself, to simply remember our truth. This pattern we create to survive is our shield, mask or simply not who we believe we are allowed to be because of fear that has been gifted to us by our parents, spouses or society.

The path of life is to love the life you have chosen. To develop a trust that there is a process to all of life and that everything happens for a reason. Those who dare to believe otherwise refuse to learn about themselves. Clearly, I see the pain in life that we ourselves need to create due to the basic belief we choose when we choose fear. Once love replaces fear the pain will be no more. We all at one time need to grow our thoughts, words and actions with a belief that is positive by planting one seed at a time. A wholeness will then develop to set one apart. As we realize there is a part of us that is our spiritual self, we will then discover that these inner parts are deep and profound, as well as, perfect.

We create barriers in our own lives! Who or what is this barrier? It has to be an emotional state one gets into which is not contributing to who one really is. As the carrier of our own emotions we need to release the ideas, thoughts and feelings of yesterdays relationship with life that have become habits today. In doing so, a new beginning will unfold.

There is a definite oneness to life – a unity that connects us all yet we are individual with our own creativity to allow one to progress in life to complete self-harmony. We will then become balanced and have responsibilities through the service of this creativity to fulfill a life daily with this inner wisdom which is our self-harmony. Individually each one of us needs to attain this for ourselves. The barrier created of emotional attachment will be released then forever. The beauty of life is when we choose not to allow despair into  our being and to stop the growth of it to become a strength that is unacceptable. We must grow beyond what we ourselves can imagine.

There comes a time when we desire to travel alone in life without the strength of another. Why? We need to find the strength we possess within! When one flies to the highest change one can experience the discovery of who they can be will be waiting to complete them. This release of emotional attachment to our past is the grandest of complete growth and our independence. We all have the right to travel this journey of knowledge that we crave about who we are and who we can be.

There will then be a positive sight  to cling to and the path will be cleared of the debris of fear that had been gifted from one to another. The  body, mind and soul creates and craves to release the negativity of life that surrounds everyone. This is the needed escape to cleanse the thoughts of yesterday once and for all. The routine of the vicious cycle of life one is accustomed to will then end quite quickly. We cannot stop the fears of yesterday by the thoughts of trying to reason or ask why. That is not up to us IAM told. Embrace the lessons learned and leave the rest.

It is a bit difficult to be able to stand up and believe in oneself. Yet, it is needed and the only way is to follow the inner ache of the heart for more. The truth of who anyone can be is this accomplishment. We are never taught to love ourselves first but to do for others especially as women. It is expected that women must sacrifice their lives for those they love. Men also have the burden of being strong, successful, responsible and insightful to the needs of the women they love. Whether we are woman or man fear is of the ego. Love erases the fears of yesterday and connects one to God. Anyone can get a chance to live a life that can fulfill their desired dreams at any age. A miracle of insight and knowledge, of all one can desire, dream and imagine starts by the simple act of loving oneself.

One may wonder how one begins to love oneself and reach as deep within as they can to find their path, passion, and purpose – their power. It is not easy to relive the past looking for answers to all the questions that start with why! Know that there is a road to travel that is waiting for you. Leave the past where it belongs in the past and become aware of your present thoughts, words and actions. The steps can be many; from diet, to exercise, affirmations, Reiki, acupuncture, massage, meditation, prayer, energy healing and the inner work of taking pen to paper is the greatest therapy I have ever experienced to release all that no longer serves me today. My greatest moments in life have been when I connected to Mother Nature’s beauty; a walk at the beach, a walk around the block, sitting under the moon, swimming in water, even hugging a tree to ground myself to her and fill myself up with her strength. We are one as we all spend time with her daily in any form that we travel. Mother Earth connects us and supports us in all that we choose to be.

As I look outside my window the beauty of Mother Nature expands my heart to open. I am extremely blessed because I live on the water  and every morning, day and night I embrace this awesome sight. The memories I carry in my minds eye of my children growing up here fills me with unconditional love for life on a whole. Now as a grandmother I get to see my grand babies fill with joy when they come here to go in the pool, fish off the dock or just watch the different boats and jet skis go by. My oldest grandson had his first four birthday parties here and starts with the first sunny day to ask if the pool is open yet? We have had many parties and celebrations during the past twenty-six years but the fondest of memories for me, is the quiet in the early morning as I ponder life looking at the flow of water.

Of course, during the different seasons of the year the view changes but in difficult times in life that I have experienced it was always Mother Nature that offered me a way to heal. To simply step out my kitchen door onto the deck and thank her for her beauty and let the sun fill my being, to read a book with a cup of coffee and know I  am nourished by these surroundings because I experience this beauty daily when I just sit outside or look out. The birds chirping, the ducks quacking, swans swimming by this time of year is a delight to all my senses and I am grateful to be alive!

I have respected her beauty and all that she offers me from a very young age. My father taught me to treat her with love and I have. I am tender with her as I recycle, have a water filter in my home, do not use bleach or harmful chemicals to clean and clean up after others whenever I see garbage, especially in women’s bathrooms. I don’t let the water run before taking a shower or while I am brushing my teeth, as well as buying recycled products such as paper towels and toilet paper. I also have this ache that settles in my heart when it comes to waste of any kind. Paying attention to the stuff in our lives and not throwing out good items of any kind but donating them to those in need who are less fortunate helps as well. Simple little rituals in life that we can all pay attention to daily to respect this great home we all share.

I wonder at times how can someone not pay attention to their surroundings? If you see garbage pick it up. If you use plastics, please recycle them, choose safe products to clean your home with not harsh chemicals that go down the drain into Mother Nature, especially in theses times now where Mother Nature, our Earth, our home is crying out to us.

May God continue to bless our beautiful Mother and give her a tremendous hug from all of us at this time of the year.

There comes a single moment in time when the whispers of the soul starts to scream. One can no longer handle the fear, guilt and shame because grief fills the heart for that which is no longer and can never be. There are these days in life where we fear the past, as well as the future. Our hearts begin to ache for what, we wonder? Something is missing; a hug, a tender word, or maybe just to sit in silence. What is this despair that fills the heart daily? It is at that moment that the dawn of change is created and transformation begins. Many of us look outside ourselves for the answers but the truth of who we are rests within. The truth of life is that everyone must love who they are as they are and then the heart will fill with this joy and love for all will be manifested.

To grow forward in life one must ignite the fire, burn the past, walk through the flames and start  to breathe fresh air again. The act of fire releases the past symbolically when performed with intention, love and an open heart!

Many of us carry proudly the unkind words we have heard over and over again in our heads, different forms of abuse, along with this inner sorrow of fear, guilt and shame  that is not our own but that which is given to us by those we love and trust. Through radio, television, newspapers, and movies our society has been given fear on a daily basis.

I believe in ritual, candles, incense and cleansing ourselves, and our homes by creating sacred space with intention, prayer and meditation. These simple acts that are ignited with flame can allow a journey of transformation to begin. Start your day with meditation, light incense as a ritual of cleansing yesterday! Today is a new day, begin again.

Find time to write to those who have hurt you and thank them for the strength they endowed you with to get to this stage in your life, then burn the past once and for all with a small ritual and begin again as the unique, beautiful, gifted spiritual person you are. Many of us fear the act of sitting with a journal and pouring our hearts out, I say pour your heart out and then release it all by the act of burning it. Another ritual is to walk outside surrounded by Mother Nature and see the beauty, hear the birds, wind and trees speak to you of the magic of life, or just step outside and thank Mother Earth for this new glorious day, to begin again!

Releasing that which no longer serves you today is the key to unlock the door of tomorrow with an open heart filled with love. Today is a new day, begin again!

There is a very thin line I am experiencing between the demons of the first three chakras; fear, guilt and shame when it comes to being held accountable in life to the passions of the soul. I ask are these mine to claim or are they projected upon me? We live in a society where fear, guilt and shame are expected as a part of our life experience. I reject this belief! I AM fearless! I  AM guiltless! I AM shameless! There can be no other avenue in my mind at this time.

Whether one is man or women it matters not what is taught or gifted to us by our parents, friends, family, or society. If any of it fills us with fear, guilt or shame we must ask ourselves is it truly ours or is this a projection of how we have been raised or taught to accept as our life experience. 

The soul knows best of the passions that will nourish each of us daily. Whether it be our foundation and connection to Mother Nature, the need to create through any form of art that fills us with joy as we move with the flow of life forward and to stand in our own power to know who we are and walk the path we have been guided on is the essence within that is sacred to all individually.

Acceptance of our journey allows a belief that we accept and respect another’s journey by offering unconditional love. It seems such a simple belief to say and know in your heart, ” I love you just as you are!” However, few can truly know this feeling within themselves if they never reject their own fear, guilt and shame. I ask of all to look within and find the love for oneself as you are first so that you can begin to love another truly. Let’s project the feeling of LOVE onto one another!

The Path one travels in life seems to be something which all believe needs to be searched for!

What if the path is where our feet stand at this exact moment in time?

What if there is no need to search for anything at all?

Personally, I have lived a life filled with interesting lessons that I have learned from, which have been part of my path. I haven made choices in life that have empowered me to continue always on my path forward, although sometimes a bit slow. I smile at the memory of the freedom of my youth, as well as the fears I learned, a marriage at a young age, where I was clueless to who I was and would be and then the joys of motherhood. However, through those years I had many detours to embrace with a belief of my own that unconditional love is the best medicine in the world.

My learning experiences have created in me an awareness that I always have a choice. Sometimes I chose silence for many years (these were the slow years) only to digest that which I could not comprehend from those I loved. Other times, I roared as a lion to protect my cubs, who I respected and knew that one day they would have to leave me because I did not own them. There were times where I escaped into a good book or I should write many a book, just to rest for awhile. For me the daily writing of my experiences cleared a wider path to walk. At times I took to my bed with a heavy heart depressed and dealing with grief that had suddenly come upon me. Through all the years of my life I acquired a belief that if I did anything with love in my heart I would be okay.

When a fork appealed on my path one day I had a choice to make which would change and transform my life tremendously but I believe today I was led and have always been led to rise and continue on by a force which I call my Higher Self, God, or Jesus! At times I doubted myself and all that I was transforming, learning and creating. I wondered if this was possible for me, at this age, at this time? I began to seek, search and acquire with a belief that I needed more.

Recently, I came under the awareness that I am on a golden path filled with singing birds, beautiful flowers, strong trees, blue skies and a sun that warms my soul as the stars twinkle above me in the night. Where I stand today, as I AM, is my path.
