As humans living a spiritual journey, we as a society rush around from one moment to another. We struggle with all that we have to accomplish. We become frantic this time of year because of the holiday season. Money goes on gifts that people sometimes do not want or need
Through it all, we have become a people that struggle! Whoever we are in the family or friends that we communicate with there is a struggle to behold. The biggest of these during this time of year is those that we have lost. Grief grips us in a moment and tears well up, and we remember what will never be.
“Be a reflection of what you’d like to see in others! If you want love, give love, if you want honesty, give honesty, if you want respect, give respect. You get in return, what you give!” – Unknown
It just is too much! Then we have to take into account where we are as a person in our own lives …
-Have we manifested our dreams?
-Did we do all that we said we would do this year?
-Have we been able to move forward in life more abundant this year?
-Is being happy part of our daily life? If not, what can we do to change this?
“A pause gives you breathing space so listen to the whispers of the real you waiting to happen.” -Tara Estacaan
Today is the day that you need to ‘pause.’ Sit down in silence for a few minutes and dream your dream. Take pen to paper and write a letter to yourself on how you crave to live your life. Walk outside in Mother Nature and breathe in the wonders that are waiting for you. Ask and then listen, and you will hear what to do.
Reflection of the self is necessary at this time of the year. We are all a year older, and life sometimes gets away from us. The chores of our daily life experience can override our hearts desires. One day we had a beautiful dream, but the next day we are living a nightmare. When we ‘pause’ we take into account that which will bring us joy and happiness. It is our right to have joy and happiness daily in our lives. Anything we need to know waits within to be acknowledged.
Many of us believe that life is meant to be difficult, that we cannot be abundant or we need to feel pain. If your life is unhappy, painful, filled with lack, or you are unhealthy, then take this day to ‘pause,’ reflect, and rewrite your dreams. We are here to love one another, raise our vibration and to be of service.
“Since everything is a reflection of our minds … Everything can be changed by our minds.” -Buddha
We each must go within to find the answers we seek. If grief is part of your experience at this moment, please celebrate the life you were blessed to be a part of so that they are free now to journey all that they can as well. There is no death, only freedom when one chooses to transition over. Breathe that in!
Back in 2000, all I craved was to become a better person. I became a seeker of the written word in all forms, religions, beliefs, and practices. I knew that there had to be more to life. I believed that I was to share something with the world. I had an inner wisdom waiting to ignite. I felt this in my heart and soul.
I started a journey that has been amazing, difficult, filled with love, teachers and amazing women and men. I doubted at times as well! Who was I but a wife and mother when I awakened to my spirituality. Still, I moved forward open to all that was. Eager to know who I was and where I was to go.
“Pause. Listen for the whispers of your Soul. Soul quietly flows through every part of you.” -Nancy Langston
Now all these years later, I have decided to ‘pause’ at this time and see what my next step will be. In the past, I seemed to be experiencing an unknown force taking me from this interest to that teaching, year after year; books, workshops, retreats, online classes, teachers and faraway travels.
It all began in 1988, this urge to know! Today, at the end of 2017, change surrounds me. I have experienced being a Reiki Master, Certified Holistic Health Counselor, Metaphysical Practioner, Energy Healer, a self-published Author, and blogger. I have personally offered workshops, healing circles and retreats. There have been many studies that I have undertaken and many that I have not. Today, I ‘pause!’
I am honored to be a daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend but, that is not all I am to be. There is an inner call to know my truth, live it and share all that I can to help raise my vibration and your vibration. We are all here as beings of love, to live our truth and lift each other up to be the best we can be and to be of service. Attaching each other to forgiveness is essential.
“Life is a dash. Pause in the present. Enjoy this moment.” – J.R. Rim
I encourage you to take a moment and ‘pause’ this day … We as a society need to release what no longer serves us and to slow down by sitting with ourselves in silence to know what is our next step on the path of our lives … so, pause!
-Where are you?
-Where do you want to go?
-Are you living your truth?
-Do you know what your truth is?
I, too will ‘pause,’ in the New Year to go within, read spiritual books, meditate, journal and bond with Mother Nature. I pray that you join me so that 2018 can be the best year of our lives.
Pray. Meditate. Journal.
