Spiritual Awakening

    We are in the midst of a spiritual awakening on the planet today. While there are changes occurring on the global arena, what is most deeply felt is the divine revelation unfolding on the personal level. When we take a sacred journey of exploration deep within ourself, we come to see the spark of divinity, a radiating light that guides us to the next step on our path.

    The person that each of us is becoming already exists at the heart of who we now are. We just need to slow down enough to gain awareness of our new self being birthed. Stilling our bodies, quieting our minds, we allow there to be gaps between our thoughts. God, peace, love, the spirit of life itself works its wonders when we but create the time and space for it to occur.

    Each one of us has gifts to bring to one another, yet we tend to get all bottled up with limiting beliefs around what could be, what should be, etc. It is time to show up fully as who we are! The more we exchange our limiting thoughts for God thoughts, we expand our awareness and thereby free our authentic self. It is then that we are able to share our gifts with the world. 
    "When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be."
- Patanjali

    The world around us needs us to be fully awake, fully present and fully alive.  Proof of this exists each time we turn on the television.  Shootings occur, natural disasters happen, jobs are lost, relationships are stressed.  If we wish to leave the world a better place, it is time to allow ourselves to be inspired and then in turn to inspire others.  Do more of what you love, and less of what does not bring you joy.  Spend more time in the silence, so that you may hear that voice of wisdom that is always available to you.

    Charles Fillmore, co-founder of the Unity movement had an affirmation that he used regularly, all the way up until his death at the ripe age of 94. He said, "I am alive, awake, alert, and enthusiastic."  Let's try this one out, allowing the life force to flow through us as we share our gifts with the world!
