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…

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 workin…

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.  …

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 a…

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…

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…

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 d…
