01 Sep I AM the Wind of Change
As the season changes and the leaves begin to fall, re-member that there is only one constant – and that is change. Nothing remains the same and time waits for no one. We are in great time of transformation for ourselves, the world and Mother Earth. The Universe and our wonderful angels seem to be nudging us to MOVE forward – take action – and do the things that our heart and soul is ready for. So I remind myself each day to be present in the moment, enjoy and appreciate everything in my life, trust that I am guided and protected and of course to laugh and just breathe.
Everyday stresses and obstacles will always be there to test us but so is all the beauty, friendship and love that touches our lives in small or great ways. At the same time, let’s enjoy the changes within us as we let go of the old energies of outmoded beliefs about ourselves and the limitations we set and let’s continue to create the new energies of peace, love, joy, and abundance that we so rightfully deserve.
Every thought, prayer and action will take you where you are supposed to be. Be open-to-receive, even if it feels like a dive into unknown territories, your heart and soul are saying “You are ready”. So hold on to your seats and be ready for the ride into new possibilities !
I challenge each and every one of us this month to be our authentic selves, to speak our truth, to shine our light, to spread loving-kindness to each other, to be thankful for all the blessings in our life, to be joy-ful in the moment and to go with the flow trusting that we are where we are supposed to be and that new opportunities, new possibilities and miracles are coming our way.
“HEART❤WORK” FOR THE MONTH
Written by Laura Grace
And yet, with the pressure we feel from others and life in general, the question may remain, “How can I live such a life?” “What steps can I take toward being just me”? In my own life, the below really resonates with me and I strive to follow this great reminders.
Nurturing your body, mind and spirit must be a priority in your life. Accept that you can only give to others to the extent you are giving to yourself. Putting yourself first is not “selfish,” but “Self-full.”
Strip away the mask and let yourself just “be.” Take time to have fun and allow yourself to find humor in being human. Know that your purpose for being born wasn’t to live life according to what society deems correct. Your purpose is to discover your true self and live from that awareness. If you resonate to the color violet, then be violet, not brown. I once read a quote from Rabindranath Tagore who wisely asked, “That which oppresses me, is it my soul trying to come out in the open, or the soul of the world knocking at my heart for its entrance?”
Doing anything out of obligation dishonors both you and the other person, and will only leave you feeling resentful. Do an “inner check” before you say “yes” to anyone. If resistance surfaces, do another inner check. If heaviness or resistance occurs again, trust what you feel and do not commit to something that is not in alignment with your heart.Look inward for your fulfillment, not outward:
Within you resides a wellspring of creativity and love. Turn within to become aware of what is driving your needs. Is it because you are feeling unloved, scared or lonely? Practice giving what you want to receive. Extending love, from the heart, is the fastest way to fill any emptiness you may feel.
Take time to appreciate how far you have come on your journey. Notice what you have worked through and your commitment to growth and healing. Doing so builds both an inner and outer abundance over time. It will help you to see the glass, or your life, half full rather than half empty.
No one is harder on us than we are on ourselves. And many of us feel guilty for taking care of ourselves, setting healthy boundaries and saying, “No.” Having been programmed to feel responsible for others, we often find it hard to recognize our own needs. Practice dropping any guilt you feel for honoring yourself. Guilt is limiting and crippling and does not serve you. Living an authentic life means being free from what others think. It requires giving yourself permission to live life according to what your heart and soul desires.
