Happy Mother’s Day -The Gifts of a Mother Both Given and Received!

May 14, 2017

Motherhood is a Divine gift.  If you are a Mother, you have been blessed with one of the greatest gifts the universe could bestow upon you.  You got the opportunity to demonstrate the power of creation on two planes… spiritually and physically.  A proverbial Macrocosm to the Microcosm.

Creation starts with a Divine idea.  That idea begins within from the heart center.  It is grown and nourished through thoughts and feelings, through the power of the imagination.  Through Divine urges that come with this nourishing, it makes you move and do things beyond yourself to bring it to life.  When the idea was conceived it was already created in the material plane just waiting to be birthed through the process of you responding to the urges with Inspired action steps.  Each step phase by phase helped to bring it closer to you in the richness of life.  The process is euphoric at times filled with expectation.  At other times it was filled with overwhelm, questioning and discomfort and sometimes pain.  This discomfort or pain was always about you releasing anything that was hindering the birth of the Divine idea. Anything in you that expected less than a miracle.

This Divine Idea required you to prepare for it’s arrival.  To “act as if”, as they say, that you already had it.  So that meant cleaning out a space in your life to make way for it.  It was necessary to let go of the old ideas of your life because it would be forever different.  That meant letting go of the old picture you had of yourself.  It would no longer apply because now you had the Divine idea and you with it were different.  Then you had to make a space in your physical environment.  It’s called “creating a vacuum.” Cleaning out material possessions and things that you no longer needed or wanted made a space where the new energy or the Divine idea could be drawn into just by the nature of physics.  Finally with everything prepared the new manifestation shows up and it is so much more than you ever imagined.

Childbirth is not any different.  It happens from within.  The Divine seed is planted within.  It is nourished by all the good you feed it.  It grows from a Divine blueprint of DNA that contains everything required, so it is already done from the beginning.  Step by step it expands finding its way to you in a process that is sometimes euphoric or uncomfortable and yes sometimes painful.  Again the discomfort and pain is to point out what actions, ideas or behaviors need to be eliminated so a perfect process can deliver a perfect outcome.  You change, the people around you change as the power of this new spirit and it’s presence is contemplated and accepted.  This is a part of the cleaning out of old mental and emotional ideas that make way for new Divine expectations and feelings.  This leads to cleaning out the house to make way for a new person with their own personality and fate.  Again a vacuum is made to assist in the emergence of this person into your life.  You act as if… buy a crib, clothes, toys, anything you believe will make this precious package happy.  And before you know it, the package in all of its wonder and glory is delivered.  Never in a routine way, but always in a way that is unique and beneficial for the lessons needed to be successful in this life for you and them.

Once you have lived the process of creation through this dynamic, you can apply it to creating anything you want in this life.  You as a mother have done it is the biggest way possible, sometimes multiple times depending on how many children you have.  This is not an etheric concept to you any longer.  You have done it first hand.  And anything you have done once you can do it again for anything you require just by remembering the experience.  You have been blessed by living the blueprint of creation.  You learned by doing and better yet without really realizing it.  It was a great wonderful, amazing life experience.  It was filled with fun, joy and more.  And now it turns out it was THE GREATEST SPIRITUAL lesson ever.  Now work it consciously to create and manifest whatever you want.  The knowing is in you.

Even if you did not physically birth a child, the process is the same.  Your Divine idea started as one of making a space in the world for another human being who needed love, nurturing, security and a home.  Everything after that develops the same way.  The nurturing, the shifing, the creating a vacuum, the process of bringing it to life.  All of it.  Creation is creation.

So you see, God gave you a leg up in the creation game.  Your willingness to bring a light into the world through your physical expression is the gift that keeps on giving if you work it.  Riches given and riches received.  Use them well and make a life of wonder for yourself and others through the powers of application with focus.  See, what you did’nt realize is that you are an expert at it already!  Now you know!

Happy Mother’s Day.

The Election is Over… What Does This Mean for Us Now?

We have an new President-Elect and it is Donald Trump.  No matter what side of the ballot box you stood on, the process has delivered a new occupant of the White House and all that brings.  We knew it could go one way or another, but that it turns out is the least of what we knew.  There was so much that was hidden and revealed about the real state of our country emotionally that was the biggest surprise showing us what we did’nt know.  Things have not changed as much as we thought.  That hurts.  The pain of exclusion is no longer hidden.  As we have worked to heal our country, worked to open the minds of our fellow Americans to the idea of inclusion, we somehow also excluded the feelings of those very people who were resistant to change.  That is what so tumultuously bubbled to the surface.

Change is required for growth.  There is no doubt about that.  President Obama was the opportunity for us to embrace change with ease and grace.  We did expand our consciousness and our picture of America has become more diverse.  In the process, the deeply rooted ideas of the old picture loosened but lingered.  Many as we have seen felt they no longer had a voice and felt excluded because they did not agree with the new ideas or picture of a Diverse and embracing America.  And that frustration came up to the surface with a vengeance.

The task now is to continue with the ideas of inclusion with new ideas of how we can work and listen to all the voices of this mighty nation and find ways to raise up together to a place of love and honor for all.  It is a serious task but there is nothing bigger than the love, wisdom and power that comes from the Divine Mind of the Universe. If we believe it is possible, the Infinite Intelligence within us will lead us to the answer.  First we have to believe.

I believe we are always moving toward good.  We have evolved over the past 240 years to the nation we are today which is filled with an abundance of good, brilliance, compassion, dignity, faith and creative power that gets less focus these days than it deserves.  My vision is one of monumentous healing created by each one of us, one day at a time.  We are all one and in my vision we clearly know, feel and love the truth of that power.  We are all children of the Creator, unique individualized expressions of love in action.

Somehow in a Divine way will come a better tomorrow for us all.  I choose to live from the Heart, moment to moment, day by day.  What about you?  Remember the vision you hold creates your world.  Do you have a vision?  Time to decide how the world you want to live in looks.   A new opportunity is upon us.

Emotions can make things messy? Or do they, hmmm?

Have you ever been told you are too emotional?  How about being told you are emotionless?  Too needy?  Maybe too aloof?  What do you think?  Are you in control of your emotions or do they control you?  Better yet are you even in touch with your emotions enough to even know?

Perception is everything, and how you perceive your emotions determines the landscape of your relationships.  First with yourself and then with others.

Emotions are the most misunderstood of our human dynamics.  In our culture we have been actively taught that emotions are bad.  That we should ignore anything that makes us feel bad.  Some of us are even taught that we should ignore anything that makes us feel.  We are constantly waging internal battles to keep our emotions at bay or artificially pump them up. It keeps us off balance and adds to our uncertainty about ourselves.

Any of you who know me, know I am a passionate person.  I feel very deeply about a lot of things and I am not afraid to express it (in win win ways of course :-).  However, as I was growing up, I was criticized for that passion. “Lighten up”, “tone it down”, “don’t get so excited” are things I heard throughout the years.  It was as if being excited about things was a bad thing.  I have since learned that passion fuels creativity and creativity is the essence of life.  I love my passion and there have been many times when I have had to defend it.  All because we are so hypersensitive to feeling our emotions.  I can assure you the doors to my CENTER would not still be open without my passion.  My passion supports me energetically, intellectually and emotionally.  Yours can too!
All emotions are messengers.  They tell us what is going on in our world.  They gauge for us the safety of our situations.  They inspire our creativity.  They help us heal.  Most of all they are road maps that we need everyday as we navigate all of our life situations.  When we push them down we are ignoring one of the most efficient tools and allies that we have.

Underneath every problem in your life is a series of emotions that have been pushed down and smothered.  They did not go away, they are just building up pressure until there is too much to be contained.  At that point will come a release of some sort and all too often it is a flood or explosion that creates the opposite reaction of what we were shooting for… pain followed by a bigger mess.  Remember what you resist persists.  It complicates things instead of simplifying.  Emotions can be ignored but you will lose your chance to strengthen yourself and heal whatever is amiss. Pay now or pay bigger later.  Your choice.  I learned long ago I wanted to take the road of experiencing life in ease and grace so I made friends with my emotions.  I did that by learning to listen to the messages they bring and then making informed choices.  It is the much more empowering way.

Emotions in their free flowing form really support us in living prosperously.  Here is an example.
Did you know that fear is the emotion that supports our intuition.  Yes, that’s right.  When fear is expressing, it is telling you to stop what you are doing.  It arises to tell you there is something going on in your environment that you missed and you need to know about.  It then tells you to be still and listen.  When you do, your intuition takes over to communicate to you urges or actions that you need to take.  If you do, then you will respond in a way that will give you a positive outcome.  So you see fear is your friend, there to support you in unexpected ways.  That is when you listen!
Every emotion has a message.  Are you listening?  Or are you constantly making more issues for yourself by ignoring how you feel?  Think about it.

You no longer have to be at the mercy of your emotions, you can engage with them to make your life the powerful expression you have always desired.  I hope you will choose ease and grace like me and find the courage to be in the driver’s seat of your life.
