I have been holding on to old journals and notebooks for 10 years. 10 years of processing, forgiveness letters, ideas, morning pages, etc. On December 23, 2016 I burned them all. This picture is evidence.
Years ago I didn't think it was possible to have healing in my relationship. I almost quit before the miracle. I was thinking "Does she even like me, much less love me? Why are we even together?”
Then I made the decision to have a healing in my relationship.
For many of us on this spiritual path there is a tendency to not allow ourselves to feel or express our “negative” feelings. For years I suppressed my sadness and anger. Then one day I received the guidance, “the way out is through.”
Do you really think you were created and instilled with a passion and a gift not to share it? Just because someone else is expressing a similar message or doing the same work you do (even if they are really good at it) doesn’t mean there is not a place for your gifts. Stop comparing!
"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."- Ralph Waldo Emerson.
What does it mean to be authentic? How do we show up as ourselves despite what the world or other people may say about us?
“Do is always do, re is always re, mi is always mi. They may be sung off key by the whole world, but that does not change the value of do, re or mi in the harmonic scale."- Joel Goldsmith
There is a Divine Perfection, a spiritual prototype that is the Truth of who we are. Our work is to constantly align with this Truth.
This week I walked on fire. Seriously.
I was at Edwene Gaine’s Rock Ridge Retreat Center in Alabama participating in a prosperity retreat. I did not know in advance that walking on fire was a part of the event…thank goodness. I’m the girl who has been petrified of fire ever since firemen came to my class in Kindergarten for fire safety awareness.
The key to being an effective Spiritual Practitioner is to remember that it is not me, but Spirit within me that does the work.
