World View Perspective: Core Self Acceptance

So many different aspects of life effect, affect or infect us without us being aware of their impact on us.  They might be subtle energies, harbored old energies from others, triggered past recall energies or memories. It could be something totally unrelated to any of this, perhaps something in the room or that passes by.  We could try on clothes in a store and pick up an unwanted energy without feeling it or noticing it for days.

Instead of being overly concerned or too cautious about this happening, an easier way is to discern how you feel. If you feel at the very core of you, a sense of feeling balanced, healthy and whole, then just allow any feeling of the unwanted or out of balance energies to go.  If you do not feel positive, keep having the sense that you are surrendering the negative energies or impacts to your Core Self until you feel the release.

It sounds simplistic and perhaps too general, but it does help to keep energy off of us that might be too negative, harmful or incorrect for our system as a whole.

At our core, there is a Self that is a witness to much of what life throws in our direction.  It is a steady, constant presence that is awareness itself.  When we can feel, sense, discover or realize that it is there, we can utilize it's ability to discern who we are and who we aren't inside.

Even if a close friend or family member attempts to directly or indirectly define you, refine you, criticize or condemn you, the discerning Self can easily release that stress or tension simply be revealing to you, you are not that!

Truly, we are not (knot) any of the stuck old energies of the past; we are not anger, rage, frustration, iritation, resentments, bitterness or angst, fret or worry. We are the energy of Love and Compassion and we resonate with Inner Grace in our Highest sense, through our Highest Heart.

We simply aren't brought up to see this, hear this or know this, unless we remember our True Nature and True Self.  There are Higher aspects to our Self and to our lives.  Life is about energy fields and Light.  The Cosmic, Universal, Human, Animal, Plant and Earth Living Life Forms are also all about energy.  It is an inter-connected system of Light interacting with Light.

Density and doubt enters the picture often through fear, which can distract, even disable the Light, Love and Compassion to continue shining and uplifting!  This is the inner battle we all face in life.  Are we this dense, limited human physical form or are we a much Lighter, Brighter, Understanding and Compassionate Being?  If we are this Lighter, Brighter Being, how do we access it and maintain it?  How do we ensure those aspects of us are glowing and growing?  We do it through accessing our Core Self Acceptance.  That part of us that is not fear or fearful but rather that aspect that is Faith Itself.  If what we say or do to others, to ourselves, to life resonates with our Core Self then we are aligned with it.  If we have a sense that it goes against our Core Self, then it is best to forgive yourself and others and release it.

With conscious practice, this becomes an active way to monitor your own discernment practice for better and better alignment with Truth, Love and Compassion towards yourself and others. It is the most positive way to access and become the Truth of your Core Self Acceptance.  Inner Self Acceptance is the strongest energy we have to thwart off any unwanted energies from life and others that may threaten our own well being.  Once we know to our Core, this Self is Present, we stand in the best energetic place we can.  We stand with and for the Truth of who we truly are; there is no stronger position of clarity and Love.

World View Perspective: A choice for a Higher Perspective

As we grow and develop as human beings, we are exposed to opportunities that promote our understanding and awareness of who we are physically, mentally, emotionally intellectually and psychologically.  We learn to pay attention, be cautious and how to function and communicate in our families and societies as we mature.  We learn what works and doesn't work with our personalities and our understanding of others.  What we are not always taught is how to open our hearts and spirit and seek a Higher Truth, Love, Compassion or Perspective.

Often what pushes us to do that is when we 'hit a wall' with our life like when we must face the death of loved ones, deep loss of something or someone treasured, divorce, overwhelming harmful addictions in ourselves and/or loved ones, serious illness, long term fear of not surviving or terrifying circumstances that frighten us and threaten daily life, for example.  Theses types of human experiences can have a huge impact on our well being and they can motivate us to seek a greater understanding about life.

There are many ways to seek that deeper wisdom and truth and going within one's own Heart is a place to start.  Looking deeply into the Heart's awareness and Consciousness, we see that for each energy of lower personal emotion we can humanly experience, there is another Higher view point that effectively counter-balances the other one.  It is choosing the Higher road and a more positive perspective.

Fear becomes FAITH, lust becomes LOVE, greed becomes GRACE, pain becomes PEACE, hurt becomes HARMONY and anger becomes ACCEPTANCE energetically when we can consciously let go of one for the other.  Forgiveness is certainly one way to continuously release the strong holds of the lower nature and true aspiration is what ensures we continue to aim Higher for the Higher Perspective.  Everything is energy and we are not separate from the Highest energy, which links us to the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energy.  Our Highest levels of Consciousness already knows this because in our Highest Expression, we are this.

The key is in the aspiration for the Higher Perspective, next the realization of it and then the integration of it.  There is a Higher Perspective and it links us, connects us to the greater Truth that we are and once we understand that, it connects that Perspective with others and on it goes and grows.  This is the way Love as a Force inspires, motivates, activates, creates and expands, showing the way.  Love is the dynamic difference.  The energetic aspect the Cosmic, Universal, human, earth and all living things in this life contain is LOVE and when our Highest Heart can open to it, so much can and does shift in our human system.  So much possibility and potential is unleashed and the whole of creation responds to it with more LOVE, LOVE is the only resonance it needs.

Choose the Higher Perspective and open our Hearts to all the LOVE we already are; let LOVE transform anything resistant in it's way.  Let LOVE be the agent to take us to the Higher Perspective where we all can and will know PEACE.  It is not just a concept, it is a way of life.

World View Perspective: Transforming the unconscious fear to Conscious Love

Going deeper into the true Nature of things, Mother Earth and Mankind, we can see the whole of creation as an evolving state of Love.  Love is central to any theme of life; birth, family, friends, celebrations, holidays, giving and receiving Love and Joy from life.  It is our true connection to all we hold sacred and true in our Highest Hearts.  Love is an Infinite Source and Force found throughout creation.  It is Pure, Good and Plentiful.  It is from and is the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energies.  This Pure Being is not isolated, identified, secured or named by any religion or section of the world.  This Pure Being is everywhere all at once, nowhere and Now Here.  It lives in the Heart of us all.  The bigger Intent of our purpose here is to Love this Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energies with all our Heart and have Faith in our Inner Guidance of Love to help us transform our greatest unconscious; locks, blocks or shocks we have endured in our system, to make all aspects of ourselves conscious again.  The more conscious we become the less able we are to hurt or harm another because we begin to see on Higher and Higher levels, we are all ultimately ONE with this Infinite Being.  Hurting someone else is just like hurting ourselves.

When life is trying to find itself, it will continue to push itself further and further towards it's ultimate expression.  This is the evolutionary path we are all on.  We must continue to grow; physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically, intellectually and spiritually if we are to expand into Higher and Higher states of consciousness and true awareness.  

Right now on this planet, more consciousness is working to uplift and transform our thinking and feeling dimensions to open our Hearts more fully and completely through greater acceptance and unity; letting go of old human judgments and divisions, which has created such inequality and imbalance among people.   There is a great upheaval ('up-evil') going on to eradicate and weed out what no longer works for our greater opening and evolution.  This is showing up and being staged as fear.

It is a greater call to surrender whatever fear we have in our own personal system as well as the Collective Consciousness of fear, common to us all.  The most effective way to clear the fear is through Faith in the Love we carry in our Highest Heart.  Trust the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energy to take the blocks of fear and clear a greater path towards Love.  Love is the strongest Energy to clear fear.  Our High Heart might guide us right into the heart of our fear until we surrender it to Love Itself.  In that way, we are guarenteed the fear will go and it will be consciously replaced by, to and through Love.  Love is the way to and through fear.  Put Faith in your Highest Heart and trust the fear will leave and Love will fill it's place.  This is the ultimate goal of the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energies.  To clear our fear and fill us ever more full of Love, along with greater the greater Consciousness of Compassion and Understanding.  This is the true way of evolution for us all.

World View Perspective: Resentments must give way to acceptance

When we harbor hidden deep resentments  they act like cement.  Stagnation comes and we are effectively in angry, bitter lock down.  It becomes very difficult to move forward.  The anger and bitterness robs us then of life, joy and positive outcomes.  Resentments can erode our best efforts towards loving and understanding each other.  Resentments are like a stagnant old pond that begins breeding harmful, negative, miserable germs and bacteria that have no where to go.  They begin tainting all in their way until everything is infected.

When we actively, consciously choose acceptance and positive thinking and loving understanding instead of clinging to old resesentments, we free ourselves of unnecessary self harm or harm to others.  Acceptance of what is positive and good and choosing that perspective as a way of life as we consciously, actively also release bitterness and old resentments can and will shift our thinking around and welcome in greater peace.  Resentments divide and acceptance unites.  Let go of any and all resentments through forgiveness and Love, surrender them to inner Grace.  See and feel the inherent freedom that comes with letting go. We are held hostage by our resentments, we are set free by our Love.

World View Perspective: Fear grips, Love releases

To be in a human system, means fear is also a real presence.  Living and life are cherished and treasured things, just like when we breathe in and out and our heart beats.  The idea or concern about our lives ending or being threatened activates strong fear based emotions down to the level of fearing for our very survival.  Living and not living can become genuinely felt experiences that can consume our thinking.  Yet, if that level of fear grips our system too hard for too long, it can send us spiraling into a very dark place where we lose all sight of living life through Faith. We have reasons to be here on earth, to be with those we love and to work towards uncovering our true self and purpose here.  It is based on Love, Faith, Truth and Understanding Life.  There have been some very brave six year old children who have only lived six years but they have had a huge positive impact on our lives.  Listening to them, one hears their level of Faith in their own lives lasting just as long as necessary as they do what they need to do.  They are not afraid because they have faced their fears through Faith.  Faith in what then becomes the question.  The greatest Faith we can employ is to activate the Love we carry within.  What lies in our Heart of Hearts is the Love of Love Itself.  There exists an Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energy.  It is a Universal, Cosmic, Earth and Human Energy that knows no bounds and we are never separate from this level of Love, no matter how much fear we may be experiencing.  It stands as True in the world as anything can be.  Whether one is religious or not, this most beautiful True Energy is present in our Hearts and Souls as our Heart and Soul.  We have individual aspects of it and collective aspects of it.  It exists in all living things as life itself.  It guides us, reassures us, Loving us all the way.  It simply needs and seeks our understanding of it through Faith in it.  Trying Loving Love fully and see what happens to your system.

One of the best tests of the Love is when we want to surrender our gripping fears.  Gripping fears reduce us down, hold us back by subtracting, distracting and contracting us away from life.  When we realize and recognize it is fear having that affect on us, that is the best time to offer those fears up to Faith in the Love we carry that is within us, surrounds us, is around us and carries us through life.  Speak directly into your own Heart and ask your Heart to sincerely remove the fears you are experiencing.  Tell your Heart you know the fears are not real and that you have more Faith in the Love you carry than in the fears assaulting you.  Have the full Faith the Love you carry can and remove the most gripping fears you have as it guides you to greater and greater Love.  Without the fear, we have Love.  The more Love we carry and are conscious of, the more it grows, expands and releases more fear.  Fear can be crippling and Love can be freeing and both are a conscious choices when we realize how both make us feel.  Feel your physical system, mental system, emotional system when you are feeling fearful and then feel it when you feel Love.  We become tense when gripped by fear and relaxed when there is Love.  Love is our natural state, our higher state or genuine and real state of Being.  When you feel gripped by fear, consciously apply the True Love, the Highest Love you carry within and see if those fears don't subside.  Love releases fear and fills us with more Love.  Love is always the way forward because Love will always find the way forward.  Give your fears over to Love and let Love expand itself to you and through you and as you do, more Love will continue to find its way to balance out any fears that exist.  Having full Faith in the Love within you is the way to offset any fears, trusting that Love is more powerful, lasting and True than any fears that may come.  Notice, too, how happier and more positive you feel when Love is present versus fear.  Practice conscious Love, not unconscious fear and feel the Faith in that level of Love.  Watch it clear the way!

World View Perspective: Emerging from fear

If our ultimate goal on earth is to overcome fear, we must first understand how to discern fear from Love.  When we are in fear, we contract, pull away, retreat, hide, become small, narrow and closed.  When we are in Love, we expand, grow, willingly shift, change, extend and open.  We are happier, lighter and joy filled whereas when we are in fear, we carry that heavy burden of dread, worry and fret and it literally weighs us down.  The greatest way back to Love is by accessing Faith.  Faith in life, Faith in Love and Faith in our ultimate connection to the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energy.  Being true to our deepest sense of Love and to our self, unites us with the greatest Force and Source on earth.  Love is the greatest Energy there is; human love, love of earth, Divine Love, Universal Love and Cosmic Love can and do Unite as ONE LOVE to us and through us and that is our ultimate goal here.  To become that living Love.  When that happens, we are active collaborators of a Higher purpose.  That purpose is to manifest Love as the transformational energy for shifting and changing Mankind's Consciousness.  It is simple, just not easy. 

One of the best ways to realize it is to learn to discern when we are consciously acting out of Love or fear with everything we do.  Do we interact with others from our Heart, do we listen with our Heart, do we see others through our Heart or are we judging, withholding, demanding, manipulating or deceiving our selves or others?  With Love, we feel big, full, open, happy, giving, understanding and compassionate.  In fear, we feel separate, negative, isolated, small and alone.  The way to shift out of fear is to actively consciously release from identifying with a negative past and accessing forgiveness, gratitude and Love, lots of applied, conscious Love.

Fear is a natural human response.  Our greatest fear is the fear of not surviving.  When our very survival is threatened, we naturally have a sense of useful fear.  Fear is a signal to be more aware, more conscious and more astute in one's environment and life.  Yet, some fear is not useful but rather it is an ongoing unconscious 'tape' that runs around and around inside our mind even when we are not actually being threatened.  It might relate to an old, past experience that has not been released, forgiven or understood and yet needs to be for our greater growth.  Love from our High Heart is the best way to transform and transmute any fear we carry.  When we can consciously, actively release fear's grip on our system, through applied Love and Faith, miracles happen.

When we have a sense of Love Being the true strength within us and surrounding us, we begin to realize we can offer that fear up to LOVE ITSELF to take it away and replace the space with greater LOVE and COMPASSION.  This is our true vibration, goal, purpose and intelligence.  It is what will change our systems, our lives. the whole world and Mankind.  There is no stronger, clearer Energy to do that but LOVE.  When we emerge from fear, all we are and what we have is LOVE, greater and greater LOVE.  That LOVE is the dynamic, most positive energy for change, a change that benefits us all because it lifts the Collective Wholeness up to the ONE VIBRATION of LOVE ITSELF.  Emerging from fear into LOVE is our conscious way forward for more LOVE, LIGHT and TRUTH to be in the world and it is through each human system that we can make that happen for us all.

World View Perspective: The Heart unites, fear of separation divides

Within our collective Heart, there is true Unity.  We are all United through Love that links us directly to the Source and Force of Love itself.  When our separate ego-minds take hold of any situation, we do not see or feel Unity, we see and feel separate.  Anger, fear, rage, revenge and resentment live in the ego-mind's sense of separation.  When we aspire to know ourself through the Higher Heart of Compassion, Love and Truth, a greater strength of Infinite Grace connects with us and we are naturally inspired to expand our Heart, Compassion and Understanding.  This is the true road to Peace.  Peace cannot come through a divided intention.  Peace cannot come through actions of hatred or fear.  Peace cannot come when there is so much negative division.

The Source and Force of Love is in the domain of the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energy.  It is a Light of Life, Love and True Understanding, seeking Goodness, Balance, Grace and Peace for Earth, Humanity and all living things.  Harmony within all living things is the ultimate goal for us all to survive, thrive and accept our life, and our part in life, Gracefully.

Negative division is harmful, attacking others is harmful, blatant disregard for life is harmful and they are not acts that promote True Unity, only connection to the High Heart can do that.  

The human system is remarkable.  We have so many different faculties, skills and ability sets; intellectual, mental, emotional and physical strengths.  We can access them, develop them and utilize them as needed.  When we aspire to open to our Higher Heart, we begin to access Higher aspects of Love and spiritual understanding.  This also integrates into our human system and we can collaborate with Spirit, which leads us to True Compassion through Grace.

Through this perspective, we see the High Heart is where True Unity is found, not through the divided ego-mind of mankind.  Only the divided ego-mind seeks to harm others, think itself higher, mightier and seeks to create imbalance, disharmony and negative domination.

Only Love through the Higher Heart can see the True Unity needed for a path of Peace to be possible.  Yes, we must also stay mindful of our own human physical boundaries to protect our human systems from harm and also open our Higher Heart to not let fear take domination.

Albert Einstein made a statement about whatever human faculty creates the problem, we need a different faculty to fix it.  Our fear that we are separate is what drives the human system to acts of war and that fear lives in the ego-mind of mankind.  The human faculty that can shift that divided consciousness is trusting and opening our Higher Heart to Love, Compassion and Grace by aspiring for True Unity for us all.  

The path to Peace has many bumps, twists and turns, as well as shadows, confusion and doubt, but ultimately it can and will triumph!  A Conscious Mankind can do that!  Light and Love will ultimately win as we become more and more conscious of the Infinite Love we carry in our Highest Heart.  Seek True Unity and let your True Heart show you the way to feel True Unity within your True Self.  Peace, through our collective Heart opening, is possible.

World View Perspective: Going into the Source of Positivity

No matter the mind's frustrations, the ego's resistance, our old programming, conditioning, habits or routines, there is always a Source of Positivity within us at all times.  It might just come to us in whispers, a gut feeling, a moment of intuitive thought, mystical feeling or psychic perception but it is always there.  It is there in our own High Heart and deepest core feeling.  It is the resounding, 'Y.E.S.' and reason for life, Love and the true freedom of both outside our narrow thinking and feeling base.  It is ok, in fact, encouraged to go beyond our limited thoughts and feelings to know our expanded intelligence and awareness of who we really are within.  To know we are not the 'smaller' negative thoughts but rather we are able to know our greater sense of self too.

Imagine a wide, wider and widest circle of Light, extending beyond our boundaries into ever increasing Circles of Light.  Understand these circles of     light as Universal and Cosmic Intelligence and, in truth, we are that!  Being in a human physical body is a miraculous wonder, a delight and a privilege!  Yet, it isn't the full story.  We are, in truth, so much more!

If we see the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energy as the Force and Source of Life on earth,and beyond, conceptually and energetically, then we can easily feel and believe, that same Source and Force is within us because how can we be separate from that same element of Life?  It just cannot be the case that we are separate.  To truly aspire to seek out Truth, Love, Nature of Life and Expanded Intelligence, we can only conclude that there indeed exists an Infinite Grace as a Living and Loving Abundant Force, which we are not separate from; both Universally and Cosmically.

This is indeed the unlimited Source of Positivity, found within each human High Heart and it is expressed through True Feeling of Heart, known as Compassion.  Compassion brings us a great Source of Positivity through the Truest Love we carry within our deepest Heart.  Compassionate thoughts, feelings and awareness of Grace lifts the human spirit to great heights and allows through our greatest most positive and happy outlook, expression and true experience of 'Now'!

Allowing this well of 'well-beingness' is the greatest Joy we can feel because it actively, directly links us with the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energy, which is our greatest, Infinite goal of any lifetime!  This depth of connection and relationship to and with the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energy begins to transform and transmute any and all negativity we carry, or have carried in the past, and continues to clear out and clean out our system of any that returns.  This is why aspiring to understand our deepest Source of Positivity is a beautiful, everlasting way to proceed through Life.  It brings to our human/spiritual experience an endless Joy through True Compassion and Love; which is knowing we have within us the True Source and Force of Life, the great Source of True Positivity!

World View Perspective: Setting our inner intelligence free

When we sit quietly, we can hear our own inner thoughts and feel out true inner feelings.  We can become aware of a deeper sense of self in the context of the rest of our lives.  This deeper sense of self requires exploration and time to actually hear the Love and Truth being offered.  Meditation helps support this inner guidance and perception as does contemplation.  Just time out in nature also allows for this deeper relationship to form and develop.

After we learn to listen, accept, pay attention and implement this deeper, more profound intelligence, we begin to notice how in touch it is with everything around us.  We have to also, in this process, learn to discern that this deeper intelligence truly feels correct to us.

All around us, each and every day, there are energies begging for our attention, our time and our effort.  Some are useful, needed, necessary and important for us to give our attention to but others need to be weeded out or given less of a priority.  When we utilize our intelligence and our heart to discern what to pay attention to and what to ignore for the time being, we begin to notice what aspect of us is continually guiding us.  Applying our most earnest discernment and aspiration for truth, we can begin to notice that deeper part of our own understanding.

Understanding the true nature all around us is a gift of Heart.  Consciousness and awareness are also great gifts of Heart.  When we become conscious and aware of all the Love around us, we open our Heart to that same vibration.  Soon, we can discern when people, things and even places are of a higher vibration and which people, things and places are not.  When we open to our Higher Intelligence, the Love in our Heart, set free through conscious awareness, allows that Love to become who we are, without any separation.  The joy within us lights up, everything feels so much lighter, brighter and open.

Of course, we must maintain our system and our ability to ground when this happens.  It is important to maintain balance and attention to the present moment and yet, a sense of a new beginning and a refreshing new perspective will also be present.  This is setting our inner intelligence free.  This is letting that deepest Love come to the surface and express itself.  This is allowing Love to be who we are and who we touch in the world.  Our greatest inner Intelligence is Love Itself.  The more we open to this greatest Love, the more it replenishes us, the earth and all around us.  Love resonates with Love, just like harmony brings about more harmony.  Set your Highest Heart free to Love and see how it changes you and your world through the Loving vibration of Love.  Let the Intelligence of Love show you the path forward.

World View Perspective: Releasing our old self-images

As we evolve, grow and expand our thinking and feelings as we mature on the spiritual path, and through our continued natural human development, we also need to shift and change our self-images.  Without becoming more conscious, we can stay in the energy of old self-images.  Being stuck in the vibration of old images about our self, we run the risk of not opening up to know and experience more true aspects of our self. The old ideas about our self, which may not truthfully reflect who we are in current day, can act as stumbling blocks on our path to greater development. 

For example, if a young boy has to wear his shoes until there are holes in them because his family cannot afford new shoes this becomes one image the boy has about himself.  Yet once he is a man who can afford new shoes, he still might wear old shoes with holes in them because he has not shifted or changed his self-image!  To outgrow our old ideas about our self can be a very resistant concept because we fear we are losing an aspect of our self.  In fact, it is like a flower or a peach that has had it's time to blossom and ripen and now it must be slowly dropped to welcome in the new budding peach and flower.  Our ages and stages are cyclical as well.  We simply need to recognize them.

If our aspiration is to overcome fear on as many levels as we can, then we will need to shift and change our self image from being someone who is still fearful.  For example, to shift out of fear, we would hold our head differently, carry our self differently, speak with greater ease and feel more comfortable being our self without the old fears.  This practiced new behavior would help us with the shift and promote a greater, fresher and newer self-image.  We can also remain conscious to keep old, false behaviors at bay because they are no longer appropriate or fitting for our new self-image.  They don't serve who we are consciously becoming.  This takes conscious effort and attention to how we feel but it assists us in making the changes.

One key to undergoing this shift in awareness is to be grateful for and forgive everything and everyone that help create that old self-image.  Be grateful we have had the skills, the costume, the opportunity to play out an aspect of our self at the time we needed to play it out.  An aspect that we can now release from our active consciousness in order to grow.  The butterfly is such a strong metaphor for this transformation of self-image.  The caterpillar must release her identification of being a worm-like creature on the ground to a beautiful flying creature with amazing wings.  Her transformation is natural and so is ours.  We just have to be conscious and allow for our own evolution as we truly aspire for greater and greater opportunities to mature, both humanly and spiritually, and accept newer, lighter and brighter self-images as we learn to aim higher with our own truest understanding.

World View Perspective: Owning our own true worth and value

Accessing our True Spiritual Essence and Higher Intelligence and trusting our own inner perception of people, events and experiences enables us to transform into an expanded Self.  This Self within us can clear the fear and see things more truthfully as they are.  It is not bound by fears, frets and regrets but rather, our Higher Self can show us how to flush our energy with Grace, Compassion and Infinite Love.

This is our true value and worth.  It is our own inner 'pot of gold'.  It is the Higher expansion of who we really are and it guides us perfectly with Love, through Love and to greater Love because it is Love itself.  Owning our own Love, found it our Highest Heart, allows our life to feel, heal and transform into an ongoing consciousness of unfolding shifts and changes that resonate to more and more Love.  Love is the strongest Force on earth.

Our own High Heart is our True worth and value because it connects us directly to the Infinite Love that surrounds and abounds our life; it is truly life itself.  Life is a dance of the unconscious becoming conscious and it does so through the energy of Love, Compassion and Grace.

Love and Consciousness can become a collaborative effort, a force that opens our system to a delightful sense of the inner movement of Light, understanding and Joy.  As if a best friend is near by, loving and supporting all our best efforts to shift change and grow towards more and more of a positive outlook, perspective and an aligned inner point of view.

This connection and relationship with our own inner Love is our greatest inner worth and value because it aligns us with our Truth.  It works diligently to perfect, refine, sculpt and re-design who we were into who we are!  We simply must trust the Love we feel in this process of transformation.  The Love is the True value and worth of why we are here.  It is through Love that the change is possible.  Value your own Highest Heart and the Infinite Love you carry. Watch how it transforms your life and sense of self.  Love is at the Heart of True spiritual transformation!

World View Perspective: Breaking through illusions

With all the rules and roles human nature gets put through, at the core of who we are is the Truth of who we are.  The Truth of who we are aren't the roles and rules we play out.  Aspects of our personalities must experience themselves and express themselves in order to complete certain passages of time.  If our soul has come here to experience being a daughter, sister, wife, friend, mother or grandmother, for example, then those life opportunities will reveal themselves for the sake of the soul and our soul's growth and expansion.  When and as those levels and layers are experienced and expressed, when it is time, we can release the old attachments, let go of what doesn't serve us anymore and give up the old aspects in order for more new growth to occur.

Deep within us, there is also a greater Truth as to who we are and it is clear, clean and pure.  See it as a steady flame, a true fire, a purified crystal of pure intelligence, relating to and resonates with an Infinite Grace.  This Infinite Grace expands to the universe, to all of mankind, to the cosmos and into earth as well as into the very Heart of our Being Self.  It is our essence of life, it is life itself and it is Love itself.  The rules and roles we carry, play out and live out are the illusions about who we  think we are but until they are played out, lived out, experienced and expressed, the deeper Truth can't come to a fuller expression.

When it does begin to come forward for greater expression, the effect is a greater shattering of any and all old, false illusions of who we thought we were or who others have told us or shown us we are.  We must be open and willing to shift and change our self image in order to accommodate the new and expanded sense of an emerging new Self.

See it like the caterpillar who cannot remain a caterpillar and survive; the caterpillar must be willing to change into a butterfly. Liberation of the True Self allows in more Light, greater Love and a deeply reflected Truth.  Understand it like a hatchling who has been in it's shell long enough until that moment comes when it simply must break through and breathe it's very own air to begin to grow anew.

Our True Self/Soul seeks that very freedom.  Human growth and development is akin to spiritual growth and development and often they run hand in hand.  The goal is to awaken to who we really are after undergoing all the rules, roles and rituals of who we are not.  Learning to discern who we are through experiencing who we are not, all the illusions, invites in this deeper level of true spiritual transformation.  It is a true gift, even if the birthing is a bit painful.  If we don't shed our baby teeth, how can we prepare to grow into our mature teeth?  All of life must evolve, shift, change and expand and when we are willing to do so, Life, Love and Infinite Grace will find a way to continue it's most beautiful, unfolding advance.  Breaking through illusions allows more Light, Love and Grace to be present as Truth itself finds it's way home.

World View Perspective: Recognizing our own energy

There is a force field of high energy that surrounds our own physical body.  This energy is our expanded Self, our spirit self, containing a spiritual component of Intelligence.  When we are attuned to it, we can receive and perceive impressions and awareness that, when accessed, can be quite useful in our lives.  We can receive psychic and intuitive messages that help us discern what else we might be dealing with and working with in our situation on an energetic level.  Learning to discern what we are perceiving and receiving in our energy field is important because we can perceive any numbers of impressions; both containing positive and negative vibrations. 

As we aspire to and consciously practice recognizing our own energy field and vibration, we begin to discern when an energy enters our field which is not healthy, positive or useful for us.  Once we can do this, it is far easier to make different choices in order to avoid a situation or person who might have a negative impact on us.

The high energy that surrounds us is an Intelligence. We can form a relationship with this high energy and come to value it as a reliable form of subtle guidance and communication.  Everything is energy and the high energy that surrounds us is Loving and Compassionate and it understands our very nature.  See it as Light that surrounds your physical body and it is there to keep you safe and protected.  Perhaps you are about to dive off a rock and yet you can feel a hesitancy in your immediate environment.  This hesitancy almost feels like a person or a friend is standing by you to keep you from harm.  It isn't physically present like a real human friend could be but rather it is a subtle presence that is clearly telling you not to make the choice to jump.  When we are attuned to this subtlety in our energy field, we are guided to make conscious choices that are more aligned with who we are.  It is a more useful tool with a psychic understanding, giving us a clearer sense of a better path or greater options to take.

Practice standing in a room, feeling yourself grounded and clear in your own energy field.  Close your eyes and have a friend, partner or spouse walk in quietly and reach their arms out to you.  Notice what you feel, notice what happens as they walk closer towards you and then further away.  Be aware of the subtle shifts in energy, vibration and feeling.  Notice how it really makes you feel.

Learning to discern our own high energy field helps us expand our own understanding about life and what's around us.  It becomes a powerful tool of self empowerment and self awareness as well as containing greater possibilities for healing.  Our own High energy is Beautiful, Loving and Graceful and we are never truly without it.

World View Perspective: We are not the misery

When we experience the misery of life or excessive sadness, we are relating to an experience that has affected our human system; our mind, our emotions, our psychological self or our physical body, which we perceive as our personal sense of self.  We feel it, become aware of it and understand that we have been affected in some way.  We might benefit from counseling, having someone loving listen to us or just take some private time away to process what has happened.  It is a journey of it's own and time is a great healer.  When we can access our spiritual intelligence through forgiveness, through Love, Compassion or Faith, we realize we can surrender any and all misery to a deeper sense of gratitude.  Let the Heart speak to us of gratitude for loving the person, for knowing the people, for having a time or a lifetime with someone special.  We can be grateful for the home, for the location, for all the years this aspect of our life held this loving memory.  Then as we feel the genuine and sincere gratitude, we see all the Love in letting go of what has clearly been experienced.

In this way, we free up the misery, release the sadness, forgive the set of circumstances and move forward.  Evolution has great value on all levels that we are.  All of life moves on from a peach tree to animals to human beings.  Consciousness on all levels that we are also moves on.  Self images also shift and change on all levels that we are too.  The caterpillar becomes a butterfly through moving through it's growth patterns and natural evolution.  Evolution is a necessary step in life and it promotes good health and vitality.  It is ok to shift out of misery into Love.

When we open our minds and our Heart to life, people, friends and family as well as ourselves, energy gets released and movement occurs.  We grow, we shift, we change, we expand all the notions of who we are and what life is for us.  In this way, we mature on all levels; human and spiritual.  The more we grow, the more we realize the truth of life and when we do our Heart fills with even more Love, Forgiveness and Compassion.

Misery is a stage and we can feel all the weight of it when it hits us.  If we see it as a process that we can also move through, we can surrender all our misery in exchange for more Love.  We simply need to realize we are not the misery we are holding onto.  Often misery is the emotional attachment to something or someone we had once Loved or an attachment to a painful loss or memory or a nurtured deeply felt negative emotion over time.  Yet, misery can pass out of our system and in it's place, we can fill it with gratitude for having gone through the experience.  By not identifying with misery as a true emotion about who we are, the misery will continue to move on and away from us. Who we really are is the true Love we carry in our High Heart.  When we identify with that Love, all misery begins to disappear.  The more we know we are the Love, the more Love resonates with us.  Once filled with Love, we simply cannot be the misery.  Love is the Truth and we are that Truth of Love.

World View Perspective: Grace surrounds the pain

No matter where it hurts, where your energy is blocked or where fear sets in, Grace surrounds the pain.  Everything is energy and as such, we can learn to discern what energy within us is capable of clearing whatever hurts, feels out of balance or is just not moving forward.  When we consciously, actively try to form a relationship with our inner Grace, the response is positive and a collaborative sense of connection is formed. 

This energy of a living Grace within becomes a healing energy for positive change.  Pain comes in many forms throughout our human system.  It can come from bottled up emotions, memories never expressed, slights that happened as a child or something more direct and continual.  Pain wants to be released so we can move forward in our lives.  Accessing our inner Grace enables the pain to be nudged out where it can be surrendered fully. 

Think of it as a thorn that has gone into our skin.  It hurts, we feel it and it maybe goes in even deeper through time.  Yet when we stop and put our attention to it to be freed up and cleared, with some conscious effort, the thorn and the pain can be released.  Once that happens, we can go back to our previous activity or focus and move on.  All pain can be surrendered.

All of our conscious and unconscious pain can be surrendered to our own inner Grace.  Forgiveness is a constant tool, too, that can alleviate the stuck places and spaces.  When we are unconscious, we can hold onto experiences and energy that become major stumbling blocks to our growth and expansion.  Forgiving our self and others, through accessing Grace, is another way for greater healing to occur.

What we hold onto in our hearts, minds and bodies can be released through Grace as a living tool for change.  Be grateful for the Grace that surrounds your life, thank it daily and form a positive, healthy relationship with Grace.  Feel the Grace as a warm, sweet inner light and where you are in pain, have a sense of releasing that pain to the fluid, loving Grace within you.  Grace is truly an unlimited supply of Love, Understanding and Compassion . . . and our surrounding Grace is Good!

World View Perspective: Forgiving ourselves completely

Spiritual development, along with our human development, leads us to the point of self-forgiveness as a path for moving forward.  All the experiences, the awareness, the consciousness, the levels and layers of learning, the confusion,  stumbles and bumbles are all the needed and necessary stepping stones for growth, greater understanding and ultimate expanded thought and feeling.  How else do we learn to discern and improve our lives?  If we had the clearer or more truthful answer at the time, wouldn't we have chosen it?  As and when we look back through our relationships and past moments in time, can't we use hindsight to recognize and realize why we made the choices we made, why we followed certain desires, prompts, ideas about our self only to discover it wasn't at all what we expected?  It is at those moments, that forgiving our selves completely is so very important.  In sixth grade, we can't expect we would know and understand what we learn as seniors in high school.  There was much more development and experience needed first.  Greater growth could only happen after more time and opportunity occurred on our own path to greater wisdom and understanding.

No matter our spiritual or human current development, age or stage, it is never too late to forgive ourselves completely.  Often it is easier to forgive others but when we can completely forgive ourselves first, forgiving others becomes second nature.  Each moment truly moves us on, whether we are that conscious of it or not, and when we can use those passing moments as an opportunity to practice self-forgiveness, changes begin to happen.  We start to set free any past bondages that have effectively tied us up into knots over our past actions.  Again, in each moment, we can only do our best, given our current consciousness in action.  Knowing this helps us forgive ourselves completely.

If we used to swear in traffic at all the other motorists who we thought were in our way and yet after being involved in an accident, we stop and reconsider our stand.  We may realize that the accident happened when we were too frustrated. Now by adopting a more positive perspective, we have altered our consciousness and therefore, our outcome.

Self-forgiveness is a powerful healing tool and it serves to freshen our system and enhance our positive perspectives.  We don't even have to understand all the reasons we have carried any negative thoughts or feelings around after all this time that we may need to forgive.  Yet to forgive ourselves completely, truly sets us free.  It is an ongoing act of true self-love.

World View Perspective: Truth aligns us with who we are

In the course of our own human development, we go through so many different cycles; levels and layers of our own experience.  We can experience growth and awareness on mental levels, emotional levels, physical and spiritual levels.  We grow through relationships, expressions, feelings, education, work, communications with others, through close, heart-felt connections to others, through our failures and our successes.  We follow our desires, our drivers, our talents and our skills by way of our intelligence, heart and a sense of what is our best path forward.  We utilize our personalities, perspective and sense of value, loyalty and respect, as well as our humor and human understanding.  We also do our best to please and impress others in our life in order to enhance their lives and our relationship with them.  Along the way, we can also learn and yearn for greater and greater discernment.  Developing the ability to tell the difference between what is correct for us, despite the possible judgment of others, versus just do what everyone else expects of or from us is an important awareness to have and develop.  It takes risk and courage to break from the traditional paths the majority believes is correct based on gender, family structure, religion, personal expectations or societal programming.  Yet, sometimes for the sake of the soul, one has to follow a path that is true to their Heart in order to become that Truth.  Often when that happens, that person must be able to be a warrior for what their truth clearly indicates.

Perhaps this is not a popular choice, perhaps the warrior will lose close, important people in their lives or no longer be a part of something more familiar.  Yet, deep within them, they have a committed sense of what is right and true for them to follow, despite other possible consequences.

When we can learn to discern our own inner Truth; that place in our High Heart that tells us, 'Yes, keep going with this plan', we gain self empowerment and self-mastery over less significant thoughts and over other obligations that are not in our best interests to follow.  Truth is like an inner light that cannot be extinguished because it is a part of our bigger Heart, Soul and Spirit.  It is the Truth we can all seek and align with to guide our life to our greater purpose, which is to realize we are never, ever alone.  Our intelligence expands way beyond what we most easily know. The Truth guides us to this realization because it aligns us with who we truly, deeply are within.  The inner Truth is a destination worth seeking as is the Pure Love that gets us there.

World View Perspective: Aspiring to activate Joy

The greatest Joy we can consciously activate is spiritual Joy.  Spiritual Joy allows us to remember who we are and what we can achieve when we open our Hearts and Souls back to the memory of our relationship to the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energy.  It can be a subtle memory or a bigger opening but we can aspire to remember that purity of Love and connection.  Breathing in and out can also activate that simplest of Joys.  If we are alive and have life energy flowing through us, we can activate spiritual Joy in our Hearts and minds.  Imagine a dancing, singing, playing and playful energy surrounding you, filling you with an uplifting kind of light-hearted magic.  Feel that depth and breath of feeling inside you.  Imagine a beautiful, delightful, ever-present connection and relationship with it.  Allow it to lift you to a state of Joy as you relax deeply into the trust and faith that you are supported on the spiritual plane as well as the earth plane and in your physical body. 

Joy is a light-hearted energy and it is our link to higher and higher planes of consciousness, knowledge and understanding.  Spiritual Joy helps us to keep our balance as well as inspiring our brighter perspective.  Spiritual Joy can also be a positive, healing force because it can lighten our heavy loads so we can see a clearer path forward.

Spirit and our High Heart wants to see us happy, healthy and purposeful in our lives because then our Love resonates with the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energy and we align with a higher vibration.  The more we shift and change, grow and expand, the more our vibration changes and the more we uplift all around us, enabling their growth.

Everything is energy so when we focus on the positive, the more we enhance what is positive and on it goes and on it grows.  When we consciously, actively access spiritual Joy, we bring in the most positive vibration there is and we continuously expand our awareness of Joy Itself.

There is much in the world around us now that reflects negativity and fear.  When we access spiritual Joy and delight in the Joy, we begin to change what is negative to what is most positive.  The memory of who we are and why we are here; to become the Joy that is most fundamental to who we really are, which is Love.  Activating spiritual Joy brings us the balance, the harmony and the true delight in living.

World View Perspective: Finding that flicker of faith

Just like the downpour of any storm, just when all the lights have gone off, fear of survival sets in and somewhere there has to be a flicker of faith that reignites us.  Maybe it is seeing the neighbor's light finally coming on or finding the batteries still work in the flashlight or finding the abundance of candles and matches available, which tells us all is well.  It may seem trivial but it is enough to brighten our day and give us the courage to continue.  There is a true reality to who we are, why we are here, what we can do and become.  It is worth aspiring to know that truth is found in our absolute core fire.  The fire that ignites all our passion, our finest interests and our greatest desire to know and to understand.  Our own inspirations are a clue to this notion of where our true passions lie.  When we open to that true flicker of faith within us and kindle what we find there, miracles can happen.  Perhaps they are small at first and barely noticeable but when we fan the flicker of faith, the miracles of faith continue to grow.

If we see it as a light within us.  It may just be a spark of positive thinking or a small feeling that makes us happy.  Embracing that feeling and stoking it, we allow and encourage it to grow and expand.  The more we visualize the fire, flame or flicker, the happier we become.  Realizing we are that light, that essence of life itself, the more we can trust it and put our faith into it.  It serves to renew a deeper sense of self that we can continuously feel, love and support, which creates the depth of relationship we need to have with our inner relationship to faith itself.

Maybe the faith is just in living from now into tomorrow, maybe it is having faith in every breath and perhaps it is having faith in how far we have come in life.  The flicker of faith does not have to be big to start us on a path of fueling the inner faith.  It just has to be sincere, active and with plenty of positive attention so it can grow.

Look, search and do inner research to what brings you a sense of positive well being and what it would take to enhance it.  Put your faith into the most positive flicker you can find.  Watch how it grows.  Let that flicker of faith guide you into uplifting your inner fire to take it even higher!  Aspire to feel that faith throughout and let it shine!

World View Perspective: Our true worth is our true understanding

One of our greatest gifts is being in a human body with an ability to breathe, walk, talk, communicate and fully experience life.  To laugh, smile, hug, love and feel compassion and understanding for all of life is a true present.  If we truly consider everything is energy and we truly aspire to broaden out our understanding of the true nature of life, we can also realize there is an expanded energy field of awareness and conscious intelligence that extends beyond our every day memory of what is real.  This energy field is awareness and consciousness itself and it becomes more and more subtle as we consciously engage with it.  To establish a relationship with it takes faith, trust and true aspiration.  A higher self does exist and when we aim higher to engage with this higher aspect of our self, it is most willing to respond.  Consider it to be higher guidance that expands our higher understanding of who we really are and how we can come to understand the truer meaning of life. 

See it as a golden, light web of expanded thought and feeling that brings us higher energy, greater clarity and furthers our compassionate knowledge and understanding.  When we realize this plane of understanding exists and we can have a relationship with it, we begin to realize it continues to guide us to more rich experiences of who we really are and why we have come here on this journey.  Our own High Heart communicates with this field all the time.  It is Love, Consciousness and Compassion in it's highest form.  When we realize we do not walk alone because our love is connected at all times to Infinite Love, everything in our life lightens up and brightens up because we become aware that even though we are in dense physical/emotional/mental human bodies that is not all there is to who we are. 

Realizing and knowing this is our truer understanding about the nature of our Self opens the door to our truer worth in terms of why we are here at this time.  To understand our true worth we must not fear becoming it on a conscious level.  Letting go of any and all old stuck ideas about ourselves is a happier, healthier way to consciously proceed towards this more whole and complete understanding.  To carry the Love, Compassion and Understanding we are helps us to resonate with more and more Love and to inspire the Love in others.  To activate that Love and Compassion is our true worth, true value and it expands true self expression, which is the cornerstone of self love.  To understand we are not limited to just our human physical body is miraculous enough and when we expand that awareness to open our Hearts and Minds to Love all of life, through our every breath, our whole system begins to truly shift and change for the betterment of our life, the earth, all of life and all of mankind.  Then we are vibrating our true worth through our true understanding and positive change is clearly abundant.

World View Perspective: The only way to it is through it

When we aspire to know and understand the truth of any situation, we need faith and trust to guide us on our way.  If we aspire to know our purpose here, for example, we must apply faith and trust in our aspiration to discover that purpose. By doing so, we can be guided to things, people, situations and challenges we never would have imagined.  We actually may end up completely stuck in them until we begin to realize we are walking the path to it in order to get through it.  We need to play out all the false beliefs we have about our selves and our life before they fall away like a dandelion in the breeze when the winds of change come.  When something has finished it's course because we have completed it, experiences begin to altar because the lesson has ended and we must make room for what is next.  Maybe we are contented to finish middle school because we are ready for high school but on the spiritual level, some of the lessons are much more subtle.  What holds our structure one day may not even exist the next because that age/stage and phase is now over.  Like any kind of maturity, it takes all levels and layers of awareness to tackle the issue before we can stand back and assess fairly that we now have attained a full understanding. 

Learning to drive a car, for example, can take us through fear, concern, rules and appropriateness while out among others all abiding the same rules and then it forces us to practice, practice and practice some more until we are certain we have attained the skills. Finally the day comes when we have knowledge, experience, mastery and confidence that we can handle a vehicle safely, properly and well under any circumstances.  The only way to it is through it applies here as well.

When we are willing to sincerely aspire to know the truth of life and the true nature of things, we must live out what is false first.  Discerning what feels real and truthful versus what feels false is an important step in finding our way to our true self and to get to it, we must go through it. 

A simple technique if we find our selves over our head in a stressful situation that doesn't feel like us, we can say into our heart earnestly that 'I Am Not This'.  Clarity to support that conviction comes swiftly because we are asking sincerely to see what and who we really are and where the truth actually lies in the situation we are in.  In those moments, if we are shown a different or more positive action, along with the clarity, that is the place to start.  The more we practice this simple approach, the easier it gets to feel the difference, especially because that is what our High Heart wants too.  Infinite Love is truly where to get to and our High Heart truly knows the way to it.  We have to trust it to take us through it . . . to it.

World View Perspective: Cellular Love

With all the balancing we do, just living our lives, making time to breath consciousness into 'cellular Love' may not be high on our list.  However, breathing in gratitude for the pure Love and Compassion we carry, existing as deeply as our cells, can bring fresh energy to our very present moment.  We can set up dialogues with our whole body to stimulate more energy, more clarity, more focus and more rejuvenation just through our pure intention.  Making time each day for a 'forgiveness walk', for example, or time out in nature to thank your whole body for all the strength it carries day after day. 

See it as a mother sitting outside around a fire with all her children.  One by one, she openly thanks them for all they bring to the family, appreciates them for who they are and acknowledges each of their contributions.  How would they feel and respond?  How happy would they be to continue to contribute? 

When our True Self makes time to sincerely appreciate all our working human aspects from our pumping heart, breathing in and out lungs, walking legs and speaking voice, etc., those human systematic parts create a positive harmony, bringing more joy, balance and restorative energies into the whole system.  We just don't usually give it much conscious thought.  Yet, even in our core self within our human system down to our cellular structure, we have consciousness and Grace.  Love is at the very core of our human experience.  When our True Self in the Heart makes a conscious effort to honor and respect all the inner and outer dynamics that is our human life, amazing new insights and awareness comes, inspiring and uplifting us in each moment.  Life then becomes consistently miraculous.  We are our own best healers and we heal best through the active sincerity of conscious Love, Gratitude and Compassion.  We are that Love in motion and when our human consciousness remains true to the Infinite Being of Pure Love and Pure Energies that dwells throughout our human system, we continue to progress, grow and evolve through Love itself.  We become more and more conscious of everything and everyone around us and who surrounds us and we realize they carry the Love too. The more we shine this conscious Love the more we invite others to do the same.  Appreciate even your cellular Loving human make up and see how beautifully you and your energy are restored.

World View Perspective: Turning lead to gold

Lead is a heavy energy and gold is worth far more.  When we look at consciousness and energy, if we carry too much old and dense lead (energy) around, we can lose that sense of worth and value to our life.  The key is when we feel our life or our energy is too dense, we should see it as a clear signal to dig way down until you find what feels truly golden within yourself and bring it up to the surface.  Let that light and lightness, lift everything back up and turn everything golden.  Consciousness is golden and, as such, we can always access golden consciousness by discerning and realizing who we are and who we aren't.  There is Love, Compassion and Grace in the core of us.  We are not the heavier energies like sadness, anger, fear, fret and regret.  When we hold onto the past, we remain there until or unless we can transmute it and transform it into our current golden moment of present consciousness.  See it as a lead balloon or one filled with energy that is lighter than air.  Which one will lift you up?  Which one will help you to see everything from a higher perspective?  Golden essence is in all living things and beings because we are not separate from the universal and cosmic vibration of Love.  To be alive is to carry this life force essence.  Yes, it can be blinded from our view if we think we are truly separate from it, which ego can convince us of if allowed, or if we have forgotten our True Nature.  It is in those moments of feeling most removed or blocked that we can call on that golden consciousness by knowing we are not the density and feel restored once more.  Just like replenishing a pond after it has become too clouded, toxic or filled with impurities.  It needs to be refreshed with pure, new water and restored to it's higher natural state.  It is a natural process to go from clarity to being clouded and confused as we deal with day to day life.  The key is to continuously keep our surrounding energy clear, clean and currently present.  Higher consciousness and awareness about who we are and what is true about life in terms of the Love and Compassion in our Hearts activates the golden consciousness that renews and replenishes our joy and enthusiasm for life.  Finding the gold in the heavier lead of our lives takes conscious effort and yet when we feel that gold emerging, that is the time to let it transform our lives in miraculous ways.  Just like a teen who learns to drive, they may have demonstrated their mastery and yet now they need constant practice too.  As we continue to evolve and aim higher in consciousness and awareness, if we understand the principles of shifting and changing our energies to become much lighter and brighter, we begin taking conscious action to change the world from heavy lead to gold.  That pure intention along with action is truly uplifting and inspiring.

World View Perspective: Our Heart knows who we are

When we feel defeated, depressed, frustrated or even hopeless, remember at all times, our Heart knows who we are.  Our Heart sees more clearly than our mind and through Compassion and Love, our Heart continues to guide us back to our True Selves so we can continue moving forward.  Each experience, each person who crosses our path and every opportunity we have to grow, allows us to learn and to ultimately find greater and greater ways to listen to and trust our own Heart.  When we activate our own True Heart, we have accessed a true and trusted friend.  Sometimes it leads us far a field from where we assumed we would go only to circle back and lead us home again.  Yet, on each journey, we have gathered our strength and lessons, like rocks and shells on a beach that is always within reach.  Once the lessons have been fully learned and their completion becomes like a tool in our quiver, we can release the rocks and shells we gathered on the way, tossing them back to their natural place always through gratitude.  People, places and things are in our lives for a reason and as we grow and mature both spiritual and as a human being, we see them in different ways and on different levels.  Our Heart can always offer insight and awareness on deeper levels about what our life is about when we apply sincerity, gratitude and patience.  Our Heart knows that we are truly loving, giving, compassionate beings doing our best to find our way towards a healthier, happier balance and understanding, which takes time, effort and continuing patience.  Our Heart also knows how to get us there and why our journeys are important.  Our High Heart is connected to greater and greater energies and a higher truth.  It is through this purity that we can gain much more clarity, which expands our Heart to be more open and Loving.  Learning how to truly Love our self, accept our self and follow our Highest Heart is what the Heart echoes to us daily, if only we make time to listen.  Our Heart knows who we are and it also knows who we aren't.  If we are disturbed by energies, thoughts or feelings that don't feel like us, we can honestly say over and over, "I am not that . . .' (anger, disappointment, stress, negativity, etc.), fill in the blank.  Invite your Heart to help you discern who you are and who you really aren't within.  It is happy to do that as it helps you to remember who you are inside.  Our Heart knows we are the Love, Compassion and Understanding because, in Truth, we are not separate from our Heart.  Love is our True Nature and our Heart is this True Understanding and it is good.  Let your own Heart show you who you are!

World View Perspective: Gratitude is a breath away

Gratitude lifts the Heart and engages our joy of life.  When everything else looks dismal or feels heavy, simple gratitude for breathing in and breathing out reminds us that life itself is still present.  Counting our blessings, one by one and feeling gratitude for them all, even the challenges, lightens our load.  Courage lives on in the Heart.  Courage to be grateful for all things big and small allows us to continue looking forward.  Negative thinking and feelings can creep into our consciousness and take us on unintended journeys until we realize how far down we have gone.  In a heart beat, we can change their course by activating our own gratitude for our simple life breath.  Walking up to smell a rose or a tree or breathing in the sea air will also do the same thing.  Allowing our breath to take us into a sincere place of ongoing gratitude restores the hope, positivity and optimism for life.  Being grateful for where we are now and where we have been is another mindful technique for practicing moment to moment gratitude.  Life moves on and we must, too, to continue our survival.  Breathing in and out in a state of simple gratitude, reminds us of the necessity to keep going.  To settle the mind, we can also quietly breath in "Peace' and exhale to 'Be still'.  Repeating this over and over tells our mind to be quiet and lets peace come to the system.  It is a restful way to restore balance and harmony to the overall system.  Being grateful for our overall life also allows in more faith and trust in our life process.  The more we practice gratitude for all that our life is and all that is in our life, the more full our life becomes.  We can also be grateful for all that has come and gone in our life as it helped us grow and expand as needed.

The sea is such a great reminder of this principle.  Each breaking wave brings such a new chance for renewal and refreshment.  It gives then it takes away as it continues to move back and forth, much like our breathing in and out, yet it is always present and full.

Just like the ocean, sometimes we have completed with some things, ideas, relationships and even dreams in our life.  We can let them go when it is time and yet retain the gratitude that we had whatever it was as it was when it was needed and when it was ours.  We can surrender those things to an overall feeling of gratitude.

A state of gratitude and our conscious breathing in and out are simple techniques to bring peace and balance to our system as well as to keep us calm.  Life is always in some way on some level or layer a blessing and truly for life, our Hearts are always grateful!

World View Perspective: The weight of past burdens

When we carry the weight of past burdens, we are literally 'weighed down' by them.  Our physical body and energy feels heavy and we feel under the weight of them.  If the past burdens indeed live in and belong to the past, sit still with them and one by one see them as a leaf of a tree and allow them to consciously, actively blow away in the wind.  Be grateful for the learning and lessons but really feel them lift off and be released.  No matter how heavy or painful or dreadful the memories are, let them go.  Then have a sense of planting another tree nearby.  On this tree put flowers of all the good and positive memories you can remember.  Maybe it is just a small memory but it warms your heart or spirit every time you think about it.  Put that on your new tree.  Let those positive flowers go and grow.  Visit them as often as you'd like to.  Nurture them and hold them close.  In essence, you are nurturing positive memories that will uplift you and your spirit, making your body and energy feel lighter.  Energetically, you are also uplifting those who you are connected to as well. 

We often accrue painful and uncomfortable memories and stuff them into our system without consciously being aware of it.  After some time, we are heavily burdened by them and we don't know why we feel the way we do.  Our unconsciousness is capable of holding onto lifetimes of 'stuff' that we end up carrying until we can actively, consciously let them go.  We have to find the inner Heart courage to go into our own energy field and identify, locate, track and find any old stuck energy items that may be hurting our system because they no longer need to be there.  Once we see what may be there and realize we can surrender them, the more we cleanse our system.  In this way,  our burdens will become lighter and brighter until they are all released.

You can pretend you have a hose of fresh, new consciousness that you can spray into your energy field, washing it clean of any energy that doesn't need to be there.  Then imagine you are standing under a shower and feel yourself surrounded again by your own most positive energy.  Now begin your day and notice how you feel.

The cleansing of any and all heavy burdens we carry can become a daily practice.  Whenever you feel your energy go down or become clouded or confused, continue doing your cleansing practice and feel your energy shift, change and become less dense.

Remaining attached to the past or what we identified as our self in the past, keeps us chorded to it in harmful ways that effect our energy and the energy of others.  It is important to consciously, actively release the old heavy burdens so our energy can be freshened and renewed.  The more we consciously do this, the more we feel our Heart and our True Self.  The more we cleanse our consciousness, the more we will truly feel like our Self.

World View Perspective: Releasing negative thoughts and feelings

With any aspiration to become more and more conscious of our daily thoughts, feelings and actions towards our self and others, it is easy to overlook past patterns.  Old negative patterns of thoughts and feelings can form unconscious energy constructs that play over and over until or unless we can consciously, actively release them.  What we may not remember or stay conscious of is that there is an energy connection between all people.  When we utter or state out loud and/or share our negative thoughts or feelings with a friend about someone else or even our self, we are effecting that energetic connection.  See it like 'caking up' a beautiful golden web of connectivity among all living things.  Every negative thought or feeling is like throwing dark, heavy dirty mud on the lovely natural connection between all living things, which changes the dynamic.  It isn't easy to catch the small and quick negative, angry, childish, jealous, envious impulses we think and feel every day, especially if the negativity is deep in our unconscious/subconscious level and layer.  Yet, when we truly aspire to remember who we are and why we are here, we must have the courage to go into our self deeply enough to ferret out the negative patterns.  Think of the times when you were a child and you came home hurt and angry about losing a contest to someone competitive and hurtful, who made you feel badly about yourself.  You no doubt expressed your unhappiness about the situation to whoever would listen and you may have even held onto it for a long time.  You may have even held it against them for a long time.  When we do that, we are putting negativity on other people as well as our self.  It may seem slight or benign but over time that negativity can grow and grow. Over time it can continue to have a negative impact on our thinking as well as how we feel about others as well as our self.

On the level of our Heart, which understands Love and the Compassion that holds us all together in the big picture, we can in every moment, with each breath, begin releasing any and all negative thoughts and feelings we have ever had or held onto towards any living things, including our self.  Love it all, forgive it all, bless it all and be grateful for the person, people or experiences.  The more we let go of the past, the more freedom we feel now to welcome in positive thoughts and feelings, which creates and generates more and more positive energy.

Negative thoughts and feelings happen to all of us throughout our lifetimes.  Many are subtle and in most cases, we don't even mean it.  When you catch yourself uttering negative or harmful/hurtful thoughts and feelings, 'stop and drop' them as soon as you can.  Let them go and send positive thoughts instead.  Notice how this shift in attitude makes you feel.  You will welcome in a whole new shift in perspective the more you concentrate on what is truly positive and Love based.  It will also change your own energy and life for the better.

World View Perspective: Grace is within our very cells

When we think about Grace, it is easy to just think about our Heart, Love or prayers.  Yet, the state of a living Loving Grace also lives in our very cells.  It is at the core of us who we really are within.  It is a Pure Energy that is our Being Self.  As such, we can have a relationship and communicate with the Living Grace within.  Collaborating with our inner state of Grace allows us to feel Grace and heal with Grace. One way to see the effects of an inner relationship with Grace is like having a pond that needs an occasional cleaning.  If we can imagine having a pure white chalk like tablet marked, 'GRACE' that cleanses and purifies water when our ponds become too cloudy, toxic, darkened or soiled.  All we simply have to do is drop in the 'GRACE' tablet and let it work at the right pace to clean out the water until it is clear and fresh again.  See the tablet drop all the way to the bottom and dissolve away all that is no longer needed to refresh the water.  GRACE in our own human system works the same way.  We have to have faith in the existence of Grace before we can establish a relationship with it to begin the process.  Yet, the purity of an inner Grace exists and the Grace can lead us, guide us along our path to remembering who we are and ultimately becoming it.  Accessing our inner Grace is encouraged through meditation, contemplation and sitting quietly out in nature.  Grace is a feeling, an awareness and a living experience.  Grace is our Divine Self and it is literally at the Heart of who we are within.  An inner Joy also expresses itself as Grace.  Joy is a spiritual knowing and, when coupled with Grace, they can transform the human system into a purer state of mind and clarity.  Just like the renewed water in a fresh new pond after the Grace 'tablet'.  An active Grace wants to be awakened within and wants to collaborate with our aspiration to feel and heal so we can truly align with our True Self once again.  Inner Grace has a purpose in our human system and when we are open to it, it will actively, Lovingly collaborate with us, bringing us to an ongoing, conscious state of purifying Grace, restoring our precious balance.

World View Perspective: We are not our disappointments

As much as they continue to hurt us, haunt us, affect us or create and generate negative feelings within us, we are not our collected disappointments.  We are taught to hide our disappointments from others so we won't appear weak or fragile.  We are taught to swallow them not wallow in them.  Yet, if we ignore them over time, they can sink us like a ship.  They can become a whole 'voice' unto themselves that drown us in pain, over and over again.  When our disappointments rise up in us we need to tell them to 'stop' and then consciously 'drop' them.  Treat them like children continuing to 'tattle' on another child.  When they start, just say, 'stop and drop' so the focus and emphasis ends.  There are aspects within us that act like a living sabotaging agent.  The old thoughts and feelings we carry can carry on disturbing and disrupting our true sense of self and our efforts to heal and feel whole again.  Consider them our 'shadow self' that hopes to keep our system from opening to more and more of the true Light we carry.  If these aspects of the past can thwart our conscious attempts to move forward, our old self wins and we become unable to expand our sense of self to become who we really are.  In order to come out of the shadow, we have to know we are not the shadow.  When disappointments threaten to take away your current levels of active, consciousness, stay vigilant with 'stop and drop' until they have no further need to distract you from your higher aspirations.  Forgiving our selves and forgiving others is one of the best ways to release any and all accumulated disappointments.  Disappointments are a heavy load to carry and they literally weigh us down unnecessarily.  They hide in the corner of our emotional memory, as if they are not there, yet they will continue to sneak in on us when we least expect them to.  Just like a parent who knows a young child might sneak out of their bed at night, stop the disappointments in their track and tell them to 'stop and drop', until our system feels more like it's true self.  Saying over and over that we are not our disappointments is another way to show them something stronger than their distractions and collected 'voice' is who we are.  It also lets us know we are not the past, which we are not.  We can also love our disappointments for all they taught us ultimately and tell them the don't need to bother us anymore.  Being clear we are not our disappointments, or anyone else's disappointments, is a step towards a healthier self and a truer self, which is what transformation is all about.  We are our true self . . . and there is nothing disappointing in that!
