Dear Self…

Please join me in this adventure by going within. I would like you to take pen to paper and write yourself a letter to you from your Higher Self. Go to that place of intuition where you know that there is a Divine Intelligence and communicate openly. You are living a human existence, but you are a spiritual being.

All of us have come here with challenges and lessons to discover who we are. We have questions, and we want answers. The process is to ask, listen for an answer, and then take action. We know to ask, but we choose not to listen to the response at times. When we make no effort, there can be no change.

“A word after a word after a word is power.” – Margaret Atwood

Fear is the doubt of your being but not today! Today, you will go within and begin the journey to all that you are and all that you have lived through this lifetime. Your Higher Self knows all the answers because it has been with you forever. Your soul, my soul is the spiritual part of our existence and is eternal.

I believe we all have the same general questions! Take a look at the letter below and see if you can relate to the insight given. If you can connect, then dig a little deeper and ask for that which you need to make a change in your life today. Remember, we must take action to create a difference in our lives. There are no quick fixes or miracles. An act is a step that is needed to manifest and create change.

“Tears are words that need to be written.” -Paulo Coelho

  • Who am I?
  • What is my passion?
  • What is my purpose?
  • Why am I in this situation at this time?
  • Why is this happening to me again?
  • I do not understand _______________?

 

 

Dear Self,
You did it! The silence and the unknown have brought you home. The fears, abuse, challenges, and nightmares you embraced beautifully through love and inner wisdom connects you to live your truth today.

To believe is a knowing that anything is possible! The discovery of your truth ignited your ability to change which has now led you to the light. Was it easy? No! Was their pain, yes! And, you survived!

Without questions, there were no answers; only belief. The moment of your call, your heart opened wide as it filled with love to heal; your story-your fears-your demons! Your soul will now give you a gift of hope to share.

The challenges are part of the life experience for all, but once you saw the lesson, you grasped part of your destiny. You never doubted that the process would be lengthy or complicated. The beat of your heart told you to travel the journey forward because the end was your destiny.

The ego quivered fearfully of no longer being heard, as you ran forward without looking back. It took a lifetime of many difficulties, but you chose to see with love; speak with passion and be love! In doing so, you will help many.

You did it! You changed your story to share with the world. A belief that anything is possible when one beckons the unknown to walk along the path of one’s desires and passion. In doing so, we all discover our truth of purpose. It is merely that which fuels you living as a spiritual being having a human experience.

Always, Higher

“I write to discover what I know.” -Flannery O’Connor

May the light within guide you on your path and journey of discovery. We as humans, struggle with the fears and demands made on us in life. What if, we merely went within for the answers to these demons and nightmares that grip us but which we need to release and let go of today.

Hopefully, your answers will enlighten you on that which is your purpose because you are passionate about it. In doing so, it all comes down to how we choose to live our life at this time. For change to appear on our journeys, we are the only ones who can take a step towards the action of our dreams.

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.

Love Is Key…

In the final steps of change it is the thought of belief that creates miracles. Doors open and strangers appear allowing change to intesify. It is the circle of life that completes wholeness in life by itself. Asking if time is the issue to accomplish total change is not part of a spiritual path. Time is created by man to enforce life and gain. In reality it has been deemed that one has all the time they need to accomplish their purpose in life. In the Great Creator’s eyes it reflects mostly space that we fill with love and our actions that matters most.

The simple word ‘love’ symbolizes all that is. As people we have difficulty with this one word, ‘love’ which leads to many words in a lifetime. Love can be abundantly creative, offer another kindness while allowing beauty to fill one’s eyes. When one is receptive to love and allows its light to shine from within they too can become expansive in thought and actions. It is the strength of one word which will lead all to find their purpose and passion in life. Please do not deny love into your life. Let it enter and rest in your heart. It is comforting and filled with wondrous strength to benefit daily life and all the living. This journey of life is magical, insightful and brilliantly bright when love is at its center. Find someone or something that fills your heart with love while putting a smile on your face because of the pure joy you discover within.

As I personally walk as one with the universe IAM filled with a unity that completes me. IAM for years now gathering an awareness of all that guides me. My passion and path has always been the written word and today IAM able to let the words of life fill my pages. Life for me is the ‘now,’ and in the “now,” IAM strong to trust and be one with the truth of my own beliefs. I surround my day with the beauty of all as IAM required to wrap the arms of my life around my soul. As a unit in the unity of life my truth is shown to me in the knowledge I absorb by those who have come before me. As I ascertain their beliefs and combine yesterdays wisdom with todays, I manifest a path that will guide those who read my words towards their tomorrow.

As IAM witness to the connection of life on this journey that we are only complete and whole when we blend together the wisdom of all into our beliefs I know love is the key. The wheel of life is continuous and there are stops where one can replenish their own existence. It is being part of life and sharing love that brightens the soul. IAM thankful beyond words at the end of each day for all my thoughts and awareness of my purpose that I have been given. IAM grateful each morning for another chance to learn and obtain inner knowledge to fulfill this purpose.

Love is my way and reason today.

Love gives me insight making my soul bright.

Love answered my plea setting me free.

Love has been given to me.

IAM creative, kind, beautiful, loving and abundantly receptive and expansive towards all I now see.

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.

ImageThe Fulfillment of Space

“it is a requirement to accept life and love the life you have…”

 

The spirit of our soul cries for us and gives us opportunities we push aside. It is the way of our lives to doubt ourselves and believe we are not good enough or not capable of fulfillment. We refuse to accept our own voices in the night. The stillness and silence one needs to achieve can and will open many doors to show us the way. They say dreams come true but only if we realize it is our dream and one we can make true by being honest and truthful to our passion. Not for the monetary accomplishment but for the freedom and happiness in doing what is important to us as well as being able to help others. I believe this is the truth we all need to search for. It is the whole essence of whom each and everyone can be. To realize we can free ourselves by that which we acknowledge as the path of our own fulfilled destiny. Never to forget there are reasons for everything daily and there are many teachers we can learn from.

When we choose to pay attention and meditate we will fill with awareness which gives us insight to see the clarity of our own existence. To close our eyes to see is the greatest step in life. A true lesson in all that one can be is to be accepting of the connection to a greater existence. That which is part of the universe of life will allow one to be grateful, appreciate the beauty shown and to be then encouraged by that which belongs to us. To see and grasp this while we fill with love, understanding and compassion to create enlightens our souls. Not to waste time and dream but to dream and create is an accomplishment. To know we belong to a universe that smiles down on us as we are watched and guided on our way.

Our soul craves to express its wholeness, to feel free by the act of being productive, curious to learn as much as we can and to be nourished by that which is our inner wisdom. Find your place to be in silence, to gather up your resources and surrender to the powers that be. In doing so, you will become like a child filled with joy once you accept the wisdom that rests within.

Every soul desires and craves solitude to fly on its own.

Every destiny is being fulfilled daily as we live in spirirtual oneness with the universe.

Everyone needs to realize their power and give thanks for it.

All need to release their emotional self so that a cleaning can take place.

All will discover that their emotional energy and intuition are part of their life’s path. 

The changes will become vast once the soul becomes whole. It is the sense of being united with all that will fill one up. One will become sure footed in their direction and path in life. They will be given an intense feeling of enormous change in life when they are ready. Change comes to all when change is requried. To fulfill the burning desire in the heart one needs to trust and believe that all things are possible. All will be comforted to know that as their dream unfolds into reality they will fill with abundance and gravitate towards the light of love.

It is the work that needs to be done to learn and create a spiritual life that will lead one to complete their journey.

It is the trust and belief in the universe that allows one the strength to be aware of the depth of the sea and its vastness for comfort. Being drawn to water connects one with being drawn to the flow of life; its beauty, strength and calmness. We all need to connect to the elements for sustenance at one time on this journey; the earth, water, fire and air. At that time one can ask anything of the universe and be granted what their heart desires because we are one. This is to be accepted and acknowledged as part of the miracle of life.

Let your dreams be a window that opens in the night to guide and comfort you.

It only takes a moment in your life when you finally hear the voice of your soul crying out to you. It may be time to release the silence that roars in your head, the creativity that sleeps and the passion that aches from within unfulfilled! It matters not if you are a man or a women but I imagine women slowly walk away from their voice of truth, their desire to create and what the passion in their heart is that needs to be shared by the responsibilities of their life.  My belief stems from my own life experience as a woman.

I was thinking of my life and the changes I have created these past years last week when I realized I am exactly where I am meant to be and these are the words below that I wrote in the form of a poem. Married forty-one years to my one and only childhood boyfriend we have shared a lifetime of love, loss, tears and fears. However, I believe his greatest fear had to be when my soul cried out to me and I began to love me, to know my truth, to discover there was more in life for me. He struggled with this change and still must wonder where I go to but I have learned I have not walked away from him or the life we have created together but away from that which no longer nourished my soul!

When My Soul Cried Out To Me

There was a young girl, innocent and pure

She fell in love one day and never imagined more

A life began filling her days with household chores

She had been taught well to love these chores and never, ever asked for more!

The babies arrived;  1, 2, 3, 4 and she discovered she had locked a door.

There was an inner part of her that felt that there had to be more?

A quick look in the mirror filled her with no resemblance of the girl from yesterday.

Then her soul cried out to her, “look, there is more, you must begin today…”

She fumbled and stumbled fearing to have to leave all that she knew

As the voice within never gave up its call to her to begin anew.

She felt pulled by an unknown force to say “goodbye” to her life!

The journey began for her to find her way back to herself which filled her with strife.

Never faltering to remain she moved forward for her soul ached from within everyday

As her soul whispered, “look for the mysteries that have been locked away…”

A passion for knowledge, sharing and loving all, she discovered one day

As many believed her insane for the changes she craved by the desires that filled her with wanting to open the door!

The years have flown by, the children are grown as she grew into herself with love.

She discovered a cycle, a pattern, a cry from her soul that there is still to be more…
