“Go to the truth beyond the mind. Love is the bridge.” ~ Stephen Levine
What is your role in life?
Have you ever wondered?
I use to think I was like a telescope.
My purpose was to help people see the Big Picture, the spiritual, the macrocosm, the bigness of the universe and what our potential was beyond the human form.
Today, I feel I am less of helping people see a new perspective with just their eyes, but more of helping them see the possibility of a new Path and finding their Way.
Kind of like Indiana Jones in the scene, “Leap of Faith” from the movie, The Last Crusade, where he finds the courage and faith to take that first step. Once he throws the sand across, from one side of the chasm to the other side, he then fully sees the planks that create the bridge to take him from one side to the other. You can find that scene on YouTube…https://youtu.be/xFntFdEGgws.
It may take tiny steps to get over any bridge, but that doesn’t matter. And sometimes you have to lay the stones, or groundwork yourself, and create your own bridge.
What does matter is being open to taking the first step to a new path and a new perspective on LIFE, and a new WAY of Living.
Imagine going up Machu Pichu. You may need some guidance along the way. Someone who can help you see what you haven’t seen before and offer suggestions where you have never been before. Someone to answer questions. All the while, you are creating your own personal experience. You are the one making your own personal way in this journey of your life.
In the big picture of the world, universe and multiverse, bridges come in many forms and are the “what” that gets you from one place to another.
A bridge can be a shift in consciousness that allows you to simply see a possibility that you didn’t see before.
A bridge can be that one word, just like the first stone or piece of wood put into place, that awakens you to try something new, to get the path started, and to be on your new way.
Being the bridge, may mean holding the space of understanding where someone is and seeing where the possibility exists for them. It’s about how to help someone gain a bigger perception, but also meeting them where they are first and foremost.
As a chiropractor, I feel being a bridge builder is helping people learn to trust their bodies’ innate wisdom and ability to heal again. Once the trust in the body is restored, there is a greater vantage point, and potential for that “leap of faith” to trust the heart and soul again.
It’s about learning to trust forces of life and the universe that are seen, and then trusting what is unseen. Trusting to see through the eyes of LOVE and living from there, versus from the perception of fear.
Really no different than Indiana Jones and his “Leap of Faith.”
So what role are YOU playing out?
What is your purpose in being of service to others at this stage, or season, of your life???
What leaps of faith have you, yourself encountered to create a new path, or new Way of Living, that is enriching YOU and your life journey in body, heart & soul?
Although this is a constant flow of communication as I am receiving through my writing, it is also a personal dialogue, dispersed with my questions and the answering all in one exchange with Spirit, directly from my journal.
This all came about since I was hearing the name Sophia two weeks prior. Later in the day, I heard, Gateway. Even later, as I drove to my studio to drop off some garden statues for decorating the offiice, the word Garden popped into my head.
As I turned to look at the studio, I could not believe the beauty of the garden that day. The colors popped and were more vibrant than ever. These all felt like multiple signs along a pathway for me to follow and has been the catalyst for re-creating a new healing room, or garden room, in our chiropractic studio, “For Sophia.”
07/09/2018 … Here we are!
” Sophia, Sophia, Sophia…where art thou? ”
What is this about? My writing and being the (?)…a Divine Portal of Wisdom, or rather a “Portal for Divine Wisdom”… which were the words I heard back in April contemplating my purpose.
What this says to me…”is the ‘mystery’.”
“We each hold inside to seek the unseen forces at work in our lives, but also to find the sacredness that we do see everyday because it is all around us…the BEAUTY of Living.
Whether we see it or not, it is an undercurrent of energy that propels us along our way. No matter the course, nor the direction, hidden (but not really) forces that are creative energy as they come from the creator and all HER wisdom and Divine Nature.
SHE is Life unfolding. SHE is life expressed in our Humanness. SHE is the X-factor double (joke), and multiple, multi-fold to hold that is within the universe and beyond.
SHE is the Divine Mother, the Holy Spirit, the gateway to redemption.
Meaning to find our WAY home, to re-discover the path to our Heart and to seek not any more than simply love for thy Self, and from there, each other…(vantage point).
Are you here to teach me, to teach others…Humanity? That the key, the pathWAY home, is loving ourselves first?
This is the First Key.
It is the First Pearl.
So Be It – Blessed Be! Amen”
“The PathWAY home is to simply love thy self first.”
“In every walk with Nature one receives far more than s/he seeks.” ~ John Muir
Deer have been on the property of the Harmony House and healing studio . . . off and on . . . for several weeks now.
I am awe struck every single time I see them!
It is a special gift to see the does and the fawns wander through and feast on the foilage.
Maybe I should be upset for the plants and flowers, but I truly feel blessed by the presence of the deer, their babies, and their willingness to share the space of living in Nature’s gardens with me . . . even if only for a few moments.
The deer teaches us to TRUST. Trust our heart and to trust being in harmony with each other and ALL of nature.
The grace and gentleness of the deer reminds me to walk softly, yet stay true to my path, as I trust living in my heart.
I see a world . . . when the deer appear . . . that is simpler and inspired by Spirit to lead. They nudge my consciousness to remember the possibility of new beginnings. There is a joy that fills up from within my being as the deer find the courage to take the next step and make their way to come out of seclusion of the woodlands.
Just as we enter this new season of Summer and celebrating the Solstice as the longest day of light in the year, the deer are reminding each of us that it is time to come out of the woods, out of the shadows, and step fully into the LIGHT . . . . . it is time to allow yourself to be fully seen.
“BE at Peace . . . for the time will come when we shall ALL walk in the Light.” ~ morning meditation 5/16/2018
Summer invites each of us to be visible in our LIGHT and to be seen for all of who we truly are.
My prayer of hope for this Summer Solstice is to step as softly and gently as the deer on my path. As I am guided to create anew, I choose to always follow the LIGHT that permeates and expresses from my heart and soul.
May each of us find our way to express our LIGHT fully each and every day . . . and with each and every season.
“A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.” ~ St. Francis of Assisi
“The ROSE is without an explanation. SHE blooms, because SHE blooms.” ~ Angelus Silesius
The rose is symbolic of LOVE. It is more than romantic love or cuddly love…chocolate or fancy dinners, or jewelry.
The energy of LOVE is a Feminine Force…a Force of Nature…that resides in ALL of creation.
LOVE is the the Creator’s Energy that is a Force within and gives forth Life.
LOVE is a Force of Nature that brings forth the desire for LIFE to find its full expression.
LOVE wants no less than for full evolution, or the unfolding, of LIFE and the experience of that Life from within..from wherever it resides.
LOVE wants nothing more than to experience LIFE to the fullest in whatever container or vessel it is held.
The rose reminds me of my mother…Rosa May Berry…and the unconditional LOVE she gave to everyone, not just her children.
So, what have you learned from the LOVE of Your Mother as we celebrate this month of May, honoring our mothers?
What memories do you hold that shaped You in LOVE as a woman, mother, daughter, sister, friend, colleague, or whatever roles you have taken on in this life??? How has LOVE become you to bloom?
What memories do You hold with your own daughter…or son…that has also shaped You and your unfolding as the mother you have blossomed into within the Feminine Force of LOVE?
“Just as the ROSE does bloom, we each have an inborn potential to become. Release the potential, and allow the bud to unfold.” ~ Dr. Cheryl
What about the Divine Mother,…as well as our Earth Mother? Have you felt HER LOVE??
May we all celebrate not just one day…but everyday…the Feminine Force of LOVE that comes from Above and Below…and from within our hearts, expressing LIFE between Heaven and Earth.
May you celebrate this Feminine Force as you breathe Life into every cell of your being. May every breath be a sacred expression of LOVE.
May you celebrate LOVE today in experiencing all of the Creator’s Energy as you go out into the world today…feeling the sun on your face…smelling lilacs in the garden…seeing the unexpected hummingbird flutter by…or sharing a smile with a stranger.
May you celebrate this Feminine Force of Nature with one of your fondest memories of YOUR Mother…or someone who loved you as a mother. May the memory of your heart wrap around you like a warm blanket, enveloping YOU with the purest vibration of universal LOVE in absolute truth, trust and passion of her enduring heart!
“LOVE is a gift you can give everyday.” ~ anonymous
This was such a personal blog to write. However, I felt strongly it wasn’t just for me, but a gift to share. A gift for us to see how we are never alone in our journey of living. And a gift to see that our life’s challenges and lessons learned are truly Pearls of Wisdom from the depths of living in human form that our Soul has come to retrieve.
…..I was meditating and found myself standing at the water’s edge, the healing pond of rainbow colors surrounded by green grass. I call it a pond, although it was more the size of a small lake. I had sat here before, but never went in. Not until this day.
I wasn’t alone. Two guides, who have been in my heart for some time, were standing with me. One male and one female…Master Jesus and Mary Magdalene.
They walked me into the lake and performed a healing and at the same time it felt like a baptism. I had never been baptized before, but this felt like a ritual of healing, rejuvenation, awakening, a ceremony of cleansing and joining of hearts. It was a sacrament, uniting a sacred Trinity or Triune, with a higher part of ME, joining with the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine.
As soon as we finished, Mary took me by the arm. SHE was excited and eager to take me diving into the water. SHE held onto me as we dove deep into the waters…swimming deeper and deeper…and deeper. SHE knew exactly where she wanted to take me. SHE reminded me of the Mermaid that had been by guide several years ago, discovering the golden chalice.
The CHALICE…..the cup from which we drink of life’s experiences. The treasure, the wisdom that life has brought you. Nothing is without a gift if we are willing to look past the muck, and the yuck that can be stirred up in exploring life. If we learn to look with new eyes, with a new perspective, from a different vantage point, we can find the gold within what feels like fallen ruins.
Allow the mermaid to help you traverse the lower world, like the Shaman, to retrieve the gifts your soul was meant to share in this lifetime. SHE will dive into those uncharted waters, to those scary places where past life experiences have caused you to bury a part of yourself.
SHE creates a current of Divine Love wherever she swims. SHE is a catalyst for healing, discovery, and transformation simply through the vibration of LOVE that SHE puts forth. In the silent journey, SHE will guide you back to your true self. SHE speaks the energy of loving service, blessings, and joy. SHE reminds us to find play and pleasure even when swimming in deep waters. In the discovery, SHE offers the treasure up to you, out of service to a dear friend, speaking only with her eyes, hands, and heart…”Here it is!” Here is the gift that was buried deep within. Here is what your have been looking for!” ~ rewritten from the Mermaid and the Chalice Blog…..June 22, 2017
For the size of this pond, I was surprised how deep the waters were. It seemed like we kept swimming, deeper and deeper. As we approached the depths, there it was. It seemed like a small sunken oasis with plants and rocks. SHE put her hand among the rocks and into the earth, pulling from the bottom of this watery earthen floor.
There it was again, the golden chalice. This time SHE dipped her hand into the cup and pulled out 5 Golden Pearls which she placed in my heart….5 Golden Pearls of Wisdom.
What exactly were these pearls?
HER message felt as if the Heart holds Golden Pearls of Wisdom of Life; life experiences that guide our Soul to the greater depths of learning and a greater experience of LOVE.
Five is the number for LOVE, and the Heart is the keeper of the Wisdom we gain in transmuting our experiences and healing into LOVE. Gold represents the Christ Consciousness of LOVE, as well as the magic of alchemy as things are transformed to a higher vibration, expressing their true nature of BEing.
I wondered if these 5 Golden Pearls of Wisdom were Universal to ALL Souls, or individual to each Soul and it’s current life? If individual, what did these 5 Golden Pearls represent for ME?
I wanted to figure out what these 5 pearls represented as soon as I received them. However, slowly over the next several days, it felt like lessons of the following were put right in front of me to see, feel and explore the possibilities of what these 5 Golden Pearls of Wisdom stood for… at least for ME:
Integrity, Truth & Light
Humility, Ease & Grace
Sacrament, Sacredness of Life
Compassion, Empathy & Unconditional Love
Faith, Trust & Acceptance
The gift from Master Jesus was a white feather.
A white feather was not new; it has been a gift several times. A white feather hangs in the hair of an Indian Woman, titled “The Promise” by Lee Bogle and hangs over my bed. The white feather came from the heavens and was given to ME when surrounded by multiple beings of light while in a much previous meditation, exploring the reason for my coming to earth. A white feather is also painted in my adjusting suite in the “Helpful People” corner. A message, I feel, is saying that Spirit and the Angels are always with ME.
“HOPE is the thing with feathers, that perches in the Soul. And sings the tune without the words…and never stops at all!” ~ Emily Dickenson
Together, pearls and feathers are part of the original artwork, once again created by my dear friend, Catherine Foster in 2002…titled “Child of Light.” It is the mask of my daughters face when she was 11 years old and sits in my “Relationship” corner of my adjusting suite.
I often thought I should probably move this art piece of a child from my relationship corner. On the surface, it didn’t seem like the best choice to optimize Feng Shui for attracting a relationship in my life.
However, now if feels that this artwork was perfectly placed to represent the Union of the gifts of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine…the Child of Light being the Birth of their Union.
SHE, Mary Magdalene, represents the golden chalice or human vessel for which SPIRIT fills and the Golden Pearls are cultivated through LIFE and what our humanly experiences offers each SOUL in it’s growth and evolution.
HE, Master Jesus, representing SPIRIT, the LIGHT which fills our chalice, or humanly body. The LIGHT within that streams through every cell of our being, and when in bodily form is the animating LIFE FORCE ENERGY…or SOUL…of the human vessel to express LIFE and experience LIFE itself.
As Above…So Below….just as the Outside is an expression of the Inside. So the question becomes, “What in your Inner Heart have you created through all of your LIFE experiences…the ups and downs…the trials and tribulations…as well as the treasures? What are you expressing from these experiences to the Outside?”
The 5 Golden Pearls and White Feather were placed in my heart…the union of the Feminine and the Masculine…the union of the Human and the Spirit.
The Golden Pearls of Wisdom of Life experiences melded with eternal Hope to bring forth the vibration and melody of universal LOVE.
LOVE is the child of light that every human being can birth forth from their individual heart. The Golden Pearls and Feather symbolize the holy sacrament of uniting your Soul with that which is Human and Spirit, within the Sacred Heart of ONENESS…and the expression of universal LOVE.
Just as the pearl is created by an irritant in an oyster. Irritants in life can be the catalyst for transformation and growth of our whole being. The oyster creates a substance called “nacre” that is secreted around the irritant. We too, go into protective mode via the sympathetic nerve system when feeling the need to protect ourselves. We often wall off our hearts. Just look at the posturing of people around you. Is the heart space open, or is it more constricted and closed?
How easily accessible is your own heart, let alone the emotions and heart of the people you see everyday?
When we can learn, grow, and evolve from our life experiences, especially the irritating, painful, or unexpected ones, then we can gain Golden Pearls of Wisdom to share from our hearts…uplifting and giving Hope…not only just for ourselves, but in sharing unconditional LOVE with others.
What 5 Golden Pearls of Wisdom has your Soul learned through the irritating, difficult and challenging life experiences within this lifetime?
What words of WISDOM, or acts of kindness in offering HOPE, do YOU share from your heart, simply by living each day in the conscious space of BEing in LOVE???
The SPRING EQUINOX is less than a week away, bringing equal day and equal night. As the sun sits overhead at the equator, the Northern and Southern Hemispheres are equally illuminated.
Some may think of this time of year as Balance, but Life is about movement. Just look at how Nature continues to grow, bloom, die, and give birth again. It is in continuous motion and a process of evolution…no different that You and I.
Therefore, I don’t believe Balance truly exists in an every changing and dynamic Universe.
I do believe, however, there are moments of equilibrium of energetic forces and the balancing of these energetic forces to create stability when needed.
It may not always be of equality except for a moment in time, such as with the Spring Equinox. Because in the Universe…just as in Nature…the earth is in constant and perpetual motion around the sun. No different than the moon in orbit around the earth. We, too, are in perpetual motion of growing and evolving physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
What the Spring Equinox brings for me in this moment of equal day and night, is a Stillpoint…like a photo that has captured a beautiful memory.
The Equinox is a moment of equal day and night, as we move from darkness of winter into the light of summer. It is the moment of being in the center between these seasons, just as being in the center of the earth, just as the sun shines on the equator.
We are at the midpoint of day and night…light and darkness.
The Spring Equinox is also close in time to our celebration of Easter and the resurrection…a time where Jesus Christ evolved from living to dying from his earthly body…to being reborn into the fullness of his spiritual LIGHT body.
I hope you will take this time to sit in meditation and prayer to be in a place of stillness within your being . To be with all you have gone through…the light and the dark you have experienced in your life and the possibility of where you may be going.
What is most important is to simply be in the stillness and in the center of light and darkness…of what was and what may be….to feel your own being in this moment and to trust your Inner Light will illuminate and guide you to what is next and what is possible!
“I AM a Feminine Force of Nature…I AM no less than the wind, the rain, or the moon’s pull upon the ocean tide…” ~ words of Mary Magdalene as channeled by Dr. Cheryl
I wrote these words in a previous blog. However, today I feel HER so strongly that it is time to share where they truly came from.
These words came through me in November 2017. I knew who was speaking them. However, it was very difficult to admit it to anyone.
It has been close to twenty years now that she first came to me in a Reiki session with my dear friend..healer…artist…Catherine-M-Foster (www.catherinefoster.com). I remember, Catherine, saying she was standing in the room and that I might want to learn more about HER. I looked to Catherine for counsel and guidance on what to read. I have collected a library of books over the years on HER. Some of the writings seemed true and some not completely true.
This Reiki session was only the beginning. It was as if my soul was being awakened to the Divine Feminine and being nudged to explore HER…who she was and what she stood for.
However, it wasn’t until about two years later, that I saw my face with that of the Masculine Christ…Master Jesus…flipping back and forth while looking in the bathroom mirror. It was sometime following a Soul Recognition Ceremony that Catherine had recommended the year before as something I might want to experience. It took a year to get the courage up to do it. Again, Catherine stepped in as my guide and guardian during this ceremony and process.
Although Mary Magdalene did not appear to me during the Soul Recognition, this ceremony was a catalyst for healing and for the vision of Christ’s face being interwoven with mine.
So many things run through your mind when you see things that others are not seeing. You wonder if you are going crazy? You wonder what exactly does this mean? You wonder if you should speak about it, or keep it in the depths of simply unexplained experiences?
I kept drawing a symbol, trying to get it just right. I was writing the word…Christos. Then I found the symbol in one of Catherine’s art pieces and felt there was some validation to my unseen world and what was utterly unexplainable. This artwork now sits in the middle of my reception area of my healing studio.
It may have seemed like a dormant process during that time until now, but a lot of change was happening below the surface of my awareness as I look back.
One was the walk in the Labyrinth at Unity Church. Once in the center I was getting a download that caused me to sit on the floor with tears streaming down my face. I felt as if I sat for hours and could not move, even if I tried. I have no idea what was exchanged in that moment, except some form of deep soul to soul communication.
I asked who are You? How do I communicate again with You in the future? What do I call You? The name I understood was “Sar’h.” It was a collective consciousness of energy, not one single entity. Whether it was the actual name, I do not know. However, I knew it was a name given such that I could easily identify this energy with the collective consciousness of the children and Lineage of Light that Master Jesus and Mary Magdalene had seeded in their union.
I can’t recall how much time has passed since the walk in the Labyrinth; it could be ten years by now. However, within the last two years, Spirit has been opening me to channel HER through my writings after going through several months of visions and learning from different Feminine Archetypes. The high priestess, Isis, was the first to come. I not only felt I was an apprentice to Isis, but a daughter to her as well. This was also activated in a guided mediation with Catherine.
I have to say, Catherine, has not only been my dear friend for many years: she has stood as guardian, teacher, and catalyst for when my soul needs healing and is calling for expansion and growth. Sometimes she has shown up for one thing and something else amazingly emerges. That, to me, is the beauty of trust, allowing and following Spirit’s lead…something Catherine expresses everyday and has been teaching me every step of the way.
More recently in the last 4 months, greater clarity has come in vision. HER appearance came to me several times as the High Priestess in early December and even requested permission to bring HER energy through my hands while serving in my chiropractic studio.
“I am both, deeply honored and humbled, to share the energy and messages of the Feminine Christ Consciousness. My heart is full of love and gratitude in allowing my hands to be HER hands…and my voice to be HER voice…the voice of Mary Magdalene.” ~ Dr. Cheryl
What followed was more downloads of information, visions, and deep emotion. I can’t tell you how joyful and painful this type of transformation is. The emotions can come from all ends and depth of the spectrum…and beyond…since you are in the presence of energy that is of great vibration…and ALL is happening at the same time.
The soul takes over and numerous Dark Nights of the Soul come through your consciousness as you process HER life experiences, as well as your own. Sometimes before one is healed, another one comes through. It is a time of deepest pain, healing, and grieving HER life and that of your own heart, while questioning if this is ALL truly happening, or an illusion of your own making!!?
Fortunately, Dr. Brie Gibbs, as well as Theresa Hebert, were there for understanding and support as friends, as well as holding the unconditional love and energy of spiritual mother and sister. I don’t know how I would have gone through this without Dr. Brie’s healing work, messages, wisdom and counsel. I am forever grateful for both of these two women in my life.
However, I also needed the love of ALL of my family, friends and spiritual tribe even if they were oblivious to my process. Just knowing there was unconditional love that has been there and supported me throughout my life, even though most of my family and friends were not conscious of this transformation, allowed me to continue to go through the pain and healing, in order to get to the joy on the other side.
“It will take many lifetimes, this path of your Soul…but no matter how many spirals you journey into the depths and vastness of your Being….All Paths Journey Home! Blessed are those who find the courage to delve deep into their hearts and discover their individual Oneness and the ONENESS to the Creator/Spirit…God and Goddess!” ~ words of Mary Magdalene as channeled by Dr. Cheryl
So, I thank you for being here on this journey with me!
However, my journey has now metamorphosed into a Life Path that is no longer an experience, but my spiritual calling. And, I feel no less than the butterfly who has gone through several stages of transformation in order for my being to emerge anew from this Chrysalis of Soul.
I can’t say enough how deeply humbled and honored I am every day that she comes forward with HER words, messages, and energy for the transformation of greater LOVE and LIGHT for the Children of the world, all of Humanity and for our planet, Earth!
With LOVE Always from My Heart..and HER Heart…to all of Yours,
“When you do, or think, or feel something, do it with passion. Let it come form the Heart. Put your Heart and Soul into it. And when you do, you will feel a river flowing sweetly through you and especially through your entire life. Life has much more meaning that way.” ~ Angie Karan
February brings Valentine’s Day and many birthdays in our family. My mother was born the day after Valentine’s Day and she was the heart of our family. I believe all mother’s hold the potential to be the heart, the uniting force within all families. What beats inside a mother’s heart is a river of Love. It is what extends to all her children and is the foundation from which they will grow and flourish!
And…when you look close at the human heart, looking at it’s structure and physiology, you will see an amazing correlation between the physical and spiritual and the flow of Love.
Your Heart is divided into four chambers. Two chambers sit on the left. And two chambers sit on the right. Two sit above and two sit below.
The right chambers (masculine) pump blood that has comes from the body to the lungs. It is here where the waste product of carbon dioxide is given back to the universe. In exchange, life giving oxygen, that all human cells need, comes into the blood to be transported back to the left side (feminine) of the heart. The left side of the heart receives the rich oxygenated blood to carry it to the body, for all physiological and cellular functioning.
Even the upper chambers of the atrium, along with the lower chambers of the ventricles, work in tandem for the Heart to function unified. The atria that are Above, pump blood into the ventricles Below, in order to propel the carbon dioxide laden blood to the lungs, or the oxygen rich blood to the body.
The Beauty of one’s Heart is that it functions in a place of UNION.
It is the union of it’s chambers…the left and right (Feminine and Masculine) with the upper and lower (Above and Below)…that bring it’s distinct and separate function into a unified system of wholeness.
The Union within your Heart is a oneness … and wholeness … that beats, functions, and performs in synchronized fashion that is no less than absolute perfection!
So … the greater message that the Heart holds for us, is to find the same UNION within ourselves, of ALL of our parts.
The Heart teaches us to bring sacred union and marriage within to become whole again.
There may be aspects of ourselves we love and like, as well as facets of ourselves that we don’t like. Through LOVE, all the parts of who we are, and all experiences, can be brought back to wholeness to find that place to unite from within.
Ultimately the Heart is GOLDEN. For within the heart is where Love resides. Love is what brings the spiritual into physical form. Love is the uniting force within, just as the blood that is pumped by the human heart. Love is able to extend beyond the physical and unite all hearts in the world. LOVE is the golden and most powerful elixir of alchemy, transformation, and unifying force in nature.
Love from within your Heart is the greatest force in nature and the universal language that unites all beings through time, space and dimensions!
Honor your Heart just as you would gold!
Actually…your Heart’s worth is greater than gold.
Your beating and united Heart is priceless!!!
Remember your Heart is the pulse of Life…it holds the river and uniting force to all things through Love.
And, only through LOVE do we have the power and magic to create a new life and a new world!
“Your soul is your inner most being. The PRESENCE that you are beyond form. The consciousness that you are beyond form, that is your Soul. That is who you are in essence.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
When I started writing this blog, it was from the perspective of a talk I gave for a business networking group back in December. And when you think about what is important to your overall development whether it’s expanding your career, running your business, or simply growing as a human being, a lot of “P” words tend to show up to guide the “Process”…..Philosophy, Purpose, Passion, Play, Personal, Profession, Plans, Practices, Protocols, Procedures, People, Prosperity, Possibilities, etc.
At any point in time, you may contemplate these different areas to give you new direction in your life, to figure out your next step, or how to re-create your self, your personal life, or your professional career.
Ultimately, these “P’s” are points of reference for all areas of living to help you define who you are and define your direction.
What they have in common, as the “common denominator,” is what you value. They are what you value enough to cultivate. They are what you truly desire to experience and express.
So…when and where do you consider your PRESENCE???
Or have you ever thought about PRESENCE???
Your PRESENCE…what value does it bring to your personal or professional life, your relationships, your daily practices or routines, your business, your success, or simply just living?
Is there any real value or POWER in YOUR PRESENCE???
“My PRESENCE speaks volumes before I even say a word.” ~ Mos Def
First of all, you need to ask the question and define “What is PRESENCE?”
Beyond words, it’s your energy field, your consciousness, your essence. It is what you emit from your CORE. It is the totality of the energetic life force that surrounds you and includes everything else that you value from your core foundational Philosophy and beyond. It’s your Soul.
“I sometimes ask people, ‘Can you be aware of your own Presence? Not the thoughts that you’re having, not the emotions that you’re having, but the very PRESENCE of your very being?’ You become aware of your own Presence by sensing the entire energy field in your body that is alive. And that is the totality of your Presence.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
If your PRESENCE is a totality of yourself beyond form, and if your energy field surrounds you and precedes your physical being, then it makes sense to cultivate your PRESENCE by connecting to your Soul and being your Soul.
If PRESENCE is what is constantly being emitted by your energy field, should you not grow IT just as you do any “field” of endeavor that you wish to grow?
So, what I realized when I was first started writing this blog, was that I writing from a business perspective and not from my Soul. I had shifted the conversation of Presence from Soul to “energy” out of fear…out of fear of stepping on some toes in the business world. Maybe that was appropriate language for my audience in that time and space, but it was not exciting for me here!
In truth…in My Truth…can you ever get away from your very Soul??? I guess you can if you choose to stay in the ego, or what others want for you. But why would you ultimately want to??? I don’t want to.
So, let’s reframe the entire conversation to…
“What do you wish to emit from your Soul…your PRESENCE…and grow in this New Year of 2018?”
What do you wish others to sense from your Soul…the very essence of your being…without words… from just walking into a room? Whether there is one person in the room, or it’s a room full of people? Whether it is for a New Year’s party, or to stand up and speak in front of a board room, or on stage? What do you want the world to take away from you showing up, being YOU?
“People also leave PRESENCE in a place even when they are no longer there.” ~ Andy Goldsworthy
What about healing through simply your PRESENCE alone? Or to teach or inspire by being a walking example from the energy you emit from your Soul?
“I teach people that no matter what the situation is, no matter how chaotic, no matter how much drama is around you, you can heal by your PRESENCE if you just stay within your center.” ~ Deepak Chopra
What does it take to develop and Practice PRESENCE?
Being in your CORE…
Simply the power of your breath…breathing into your CORE, your belly…allows you to stay centered and clear. There is an unwavering strength and conviction when you live and show up from within the CORE of your being.
By staying CENTERED…as if staying in the eye of the storm where it is peaceful…any distractions, drama, and negative energies can swirl around you without disruption of your energy. The outside world does not waver what is going on, on the inside. Being CENTERED is strength; it is your central pillar from which all else unfolds.
Seeing with CLARITY…
CLARITY of vision…knowing exactly what you wish to grow…defines where you are going. Once you are clear from within, then cultivating your energy, directing your energy, and living from the energy of your Soul becomes easier…if not absolute.
What is it you emit from PRESENCE?
You exude an energy beyond your body that is palpable.
Your Presence exudes an energy that ultimately emits CONFIDENCE and CERTAINTY.
You own it. It’s yours. It’s authentic. It’s the real and most authentic YOU!!!
What is created with PRESENCE?
What first stirs is a knowing from within, or a CALLING from your heart as your Soul speaks to you. This CALLING is your greatest Purpose, such that your PRESENCE holds its vibration without doubt, and without confusion. When you know…YOU KNOW…your greatest Purpose, the energy of your heart and Soul emits a magnetic attraction within your field. The beauty of such a magnetic force is that it has an affinity, or potential to draw others in.
The Power of YOUR Presence is that is can create COLLABORATION and an alliance for more of the same with others.
YOUR Presence also has the POWER to light the way for others to find their PRESENCE, their greatest Purpose, and all the other parts of their life such that there is alignment and that may simply fall into place.
YOUR Presence and the Power of Presence in any ONE human being has the ability to re-ignite the spark of POSSIBILITY within another…and another…
“As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our PRESENCE actually liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson
The Power of Your Presence starts with with the light of your Soul. As you align with your Soul, your Presence grows. It is vibration of greater authenticity…of Purity…of Truth…and of Love…that is placed into the field of human consciousness.
When humanity’s heart can reach the tipping point of 51% of greater Truth and Love from our SOUL, then together we can emit a magnetic force that shifts our collective vibration to grow and expand into a greater global energetic field.
Together, we all shift. Our individual hearts shift. Collectively, as human beings, the whole of humanity shifts. As WE shift and reconnect to Soul and Presence, it allows our hearts to align in Truth and Love with the heart of our planet.
“In the stillness of your PRESENCE, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality of unmanifested life that animates your physical form. You can then feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is LOVE.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
TRUTH and LOVE…that is the Power of YOUR Presence!
“There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ~ Albert Einstein
I woke up this morning with these words “Mere Miracle” running through my head. Apparently sugar plums don’t dance in my head any more. Honestly, I don’t think they ever did.
Before I jumped quickly out of bed, I stopped to lay quietly and take a moment to meditate on these words, take them in, feel them and discern the true meaning.
Mere…does it mean water? Or, mere…does it mean smallest? Or when you google the meaning on the internet….”that is solely, or no more or better, than what is specified.”
Water…our bodies are 70 percent water. Being in human form as LIFE is truly a miracle.
Small…or that which is solely…or no more or better…than a miracle. Perhaps nothing short of a miracle? Or, how does anything ever get better than a miracle???
As I continued to feel into the words, I believe the message is that You and I, are each … simply and miraculously … a “Mere Miracle”… no less and no more.
So, as you prepare for the Holy Days, no matter what traditions you celebrate, I believe the meaning we are all looking to celebrate is the Light, Love, and Life that resides in all of us and around us.
I hope you will take the time to be in stillness and reflect on your own sacredness, the “mere miracle” that resides within you, just as you may reflect on the sacredness of your beliefs and traditions.
I hope that the “mere miracle” that YOU and I…and the world…can hold in our hearts and create is that of ONENESS.
When, You and I, can each hold all the parts of own individual selves that are different: the parts we like and the parts we don’t, the parts we judge and the parts we are proud of, the parts we need to forgive and heal, as well as the parts we accept and continue to grow … then You and I can be within a place of UNION inside our own individual soul, mind, heart, body, and life. And, then we can create a vibration in the field of consciousness for the second mere miracle to unfold…a place of UNION and a place of ONENESS…collectively with each other.
Once You and I can find that place to hold all that we have created in our own lives, the Light and the Dark, then we can hold unconditional LOVE and compassion for each other…no more and no less than the creator of the universe holds for ALL of us.
My Blessings to YOU and YOURS for Holy Days and New Year…
I hope and pray you find PEACE within the center of your heart and your life, even if it is not perfect.
May you find the vibration of GRATITUDE within your heart and send it out into the universe, appreciating what has brought you growth and wisdom, even if not ideal.
May you place another frequency of claiming and knowing your TRUTH, your values and the beliefs you live by.
May you share the LOVE and vibration of JOY for yourself and with those you care about.
May you offer a BLESSING from within your heart and soul…for yourself…as well as for your family, friends, community, and people of the world.
May YOU be the “mere miracle” that is awakened to the beautiful Light, Love & Life that resides within you!
And, may your Light, continue to spread the Light for the way of birthing the mere miracle of ONENESS on Earth!!!
