Consider Your Day

It is Mid-January, 2021, in the Pacific NorthWest. We have passed the Winter Solstice four weeks ago so our days are beginning to get longer. The Sun seems to rise five minutes earlier and it sets twenty minutes later these days. Wow! What are YOU going to do with all that extra daylight? Today, in Bellingham, we will have a whole 8 hours and 43 minutes of day, not including the twilights on both ends of the day. You can choose to look at how much “Darkness” will be expressed in your day or you can view the now expanding daylight. Do you dwell in looking for darkness or celebrating the increased Light?

Today, as I write, I am basking in the ever increasing return of longer days and the coming months of expanding Light. For me, there is an expanding amount of time to walk in nature on my well worn trails through the trees of the PNW (Pacific NorthWest.) Sure, the walks are muddy from recent, or current, rainfall, however getting out to walk amongst the quiet giants, who I consider sentinels and friends, is a meditative blessing. It is worth the acquired mud on my pants and shoes. This may not be your desired activity and you may dissolve when a drop of rain hits your shoulders but for me every muddy step “grounds” me.

I ask again, how will you celebrate your life today on our miraculous planet, Earth? And, how will you bask in the light of the day which gives life to our world? Looking for the Light, living in Gratitude, and Celebrating each step you are able to take can allow you to appreciate your present moment and some of the best parts of being alive and conscious. By the Way, each person you pass as you glide through your day is a blessing and a miracle, so smile and acknowledge their form of perfection. (Yes, even with their flaws and their different style choices in this life…)

So, look for the expanding Light in your life. It is a Gift and YOU are Amazing!

Who Am I, Now?

This is the end of 2020 and we have been forced inside to protect ourselves from the pandemic and this has caused many of us to become self-reflective. Maybe you are watching too much TV or are caught in social media polarization and so angry or fear filled AND not engaged in self-reflection. If you have not avoided getting slowed down and so learned more about yourself, what have you discovered? Who are YOU Now?

2020 has stripped away your “normal social life.” Work has changed. Habits have had to change. Most likely your activities with family and friends have under-gone some change in your travels, indoor get togethers, eating in your favorite restaurants, even frequency of shopping trips. Kids are not in school. Our freedoms to enjoy social contact, music, movies, and other forms of entertainment have been impacted. We even have to be more careful washing our hands, covering our faces, and keep “social distances” from people as we walk on the sidewalk or trails. Even, or especially, we can not hug parents or grandparents without considerations like never before 2020.

Even in most Western countries, the political polarization and economies have created huge change, along with more fear and anxiety. This is not happening to one country or one state or one city, this is a worldwide concern. We are all in this together and yet we are “isolated” and feeling unsupported. We are wondering where all the plans we have made have gone and if we will ever get back on track.

The track is different. Our world has changed. AND, our lives are different. We are NOT going back to pre-2020 lifestyles. So, who are we, going forward? Can we grasp the power and the excitement of the possible freedom moving forward into the dawning of a new world? Is this exciting and joyful or too scary to consider? Have you learned to meditate and to connect with your deeper self (or your Higher self) even though you miss the old culture created persona you have developed as your disguise to “fit in” with cultural expectations? Many of us are struggling to accept the “new me” in the face of an externally changing world.

It is way too soon to be happy with all that has happened (and continues to happen.) The practice of “Allowance” may be the lesson. Not Acceptance, exactly, but willingness to sit more patiently on the sidelines and watch what is unfolding. Not “trying” to control the uncontrollable but observing and creating new strategies to be our new selves. Humans are adaptable, if nothing else. We can live in any and every hostile environment on our planet. We can evolve and adapt. We can migrate. We can learn from the other cultures we bump into. Heck, we can even get old and live with physical diminishment’s. YOU are Amazing. Now what are you going to do to be of service in our new and evolving world. Let the light of your evolving spirit burn as brightly as possible. Share your wisdom from experience and support the other stumbling pilgrims you encounter.

When presented with new information or “facts,” do your research. Check your sources. DO NOT believe everything you hear, even from “trusted” sources. Yes, DO NOT BE LAZY! Things are changing so rapidly that what you heard as truth yesterday may not be true anymore. Except, know that you are loved. You are so much greater than your human drama. You and your soul are Perfect, and necessary!

It is a never ending process to “Know Thyself” as we continue to grow and become more aware as we interact with our world. There are variables. You may “Be” someone in one environment And some else in another place. Based on life experience even your “values” may change (example: from Liberal in Youth to Conservative later in life.) And, your consciousness of your connections with Divine Spirit will change as you have Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STE’s.) A dramatic experience like a NDE (Near Death Experience) will dramatically change 99% of people who happen to go through this kind of event. And, living consciously through 2020 has triggered many unusual experiences which have created opportunities to learn more about ourselves in our human incarnations. Remember, with major change, it requires some time to most fully integrate the changes or new consciousness into our human lives.

No matter where you are on your human journey, YOU are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

Dawning of the Age of Higher Consciousness

Happy New Year! Good bye to 2020 and looking to the Light for 2021…

As we transition from the year of “Torment” (2020) into the new year are we on the verge of the a New Age? Will this be the beginning of the New Consciousness or a further descent into separation and destruction of our home planet? Has the 2020 Pandemic offered us a chance to step back from cultural hedonism and conspicuous consumption or just a break from the headlong course over the ledge into mutual destruction? Will we learn from historical events regarding the decline of past civilizations or are we destined to follow the same path into a dangerous global decline? My hope is that we can remember the past human history and remember our Divine Spirit and so change course before we ruin our Earth irreparably.

Our leading cultures admire and seem to worship selfishness and individualism at the expense of the “greater good.” The power is driven by an economy (and the 1% of the population who control most of the wealth) which feeds excessively on natural resources and the servitude of a struggling working class which is an unsustainable situation. Greed of money and power is not the focus for a world growing in selfishness and is not healthy for our Global community. Future generations, if they survive, will look back on these very days as a moment of choice. These future cultures will either celebrate or demonize our cultures and leadership for the course of human civilization that is in the balance as we end the darkness of the year of 2020. Our Pandemic, our politics, our economy, and our consciousness will be revered as a positive time of growth and change or as the nail in the coffin of human civilization. Time will tell but our lessons will be critical for survival of life as we know it on Earth or as a “tear-down” and rebuilding era.

Metaphysical philosophers and Astrologers are suggesting the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius. The potential for positive redirection into a higher consciousness which can change the path of humanity. We are polarized and fighting for opposite values. These are exciting and interesting times. The travel brochures for spirits in the higher realms read, “See It (our Earth) Before Its Gone…” The “Adventure Travel” from the Higher Realms into human incarnation seems fraught with danger, excitement, and peril. But, this is nothing new for living on Earth. However, today at the end of 2020, we have the technology to either take the Earth down and allow the cockroaches to rule our planet for the next million years OR we can work together to build a more evolved civilization and consciousness. Historically, humans are headed for a horrendous apocalypse as a pattern which will lead to destruction of current civilizations. (example: remember the Roman Empire’s demise…) Oh well. Nice Try!

There is so much room for “learning” as incarnated humans. And, we tend to learn more from hard times so this will be a great opportunity for growth… It does not have to be so dark and we may find, and then follow, a path toward the Light. So, let’s jump on board and see where this train will take us. Keep your eyes, and minds, wide open. Support your fellow pilgrims as best you can because we all in this together, sink or swim… And, Love is a great option compared to fear.

Consider, loving support over greed. Consciousness over narrow polarized selfishness. Do Not buy in to conspiracy theories or we are digging a hole (do REAL research before you believe what you read on Social media even from “trusted” sources.) Giving rather than taking. Be the Light instead hiding in the shadows or basking in someone else’s light. Connecting with the Divine rather than living in the 3 dimensional ego driven mind. Remember your connection and oneness with all souls rather than building walls of separation (and hoarding wealth and power.) AND, most importantly, know and Love our planet Earth as the Miracle Jewel it is in our Universe.

My Mind writes these words and finds form for the Human drama that is playing out in our Earthly world. My heart feels a seemingly opposite sensation. My heart dances in the light of Joy “Knowing” and “Remembering” the Divinity beyond the travails of Human drama. This part of my human consciousness has access to the “what is possible” in being alive in these challenging times of human history. These words may help to rally the souls touched by these blogged thoughts and we can reach out to support each other to most gracefully learn from these challenges and raise all consciousness by doing so. I ask you to look for, and find, Joy each day you are blessed to live. Look especially deep into the moments which seem darkest to find the Light of these important lessons. (We came to the Earthly plane for the human dramas our lives create. We desire these opportunities to learn and to grow beyond our 3 dimensional limitations.) Express unconditional Love, more acceptance, less judgement, and remember our connection to the Divine Spirit and all souls…

We can do this! We can create the “Light” out of the seeming darkness which pervades our human existence. And, this means finding Joy in the blessings of our challenging learnings while releasing fear and mind created separation.

No matter where you are on your human journey, YOU are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

Everything is Neutral!

We are so conditioned. We can not see the forest from the trees. We actually think that the dramas we have in our lives are important. And, we have our “stories” which are often fear based and made up in our minds. As we gain in consciousness and move toward Enlightenment, we can clear our minds of Judgements. We can “empty the basket.” When we are most conscious, we can be in wonderment without (or at least less) of a “story.” If we can let go of our “attachment” to separation and ego thinking, we can ask “What would Love do now?”

How can we find our way into Gratitude and service through Generosity? Allow Team Love and Team Light to shine most brightly in each moment and in every interaction. Can we be like “Nellie” (the puppy,) who happily wags her tail at every person she meets. She is Pure Love and Sharing her Joy! Can we stop believing in our “story” and remember who we really are, a perfect Soul? Can we ask each person whom we interact with, “What have you come here to teach me?”

Fear and ego separation are the survival tools humans commonly use as we move through the 3 dimensional Earthly world. This is great for creating: drama, “our stories,” and our challenging lessons. Ultimately, we remember where in the Divine we have come from AND how powerful we are as Spirit. We remember that we are ALL One with the Universe (and beyond in the higher realms) and we take responsibility for the difficult lessons we have come to our human incarnation to experience. The energy of Love is at the core of the Divine Spirit. We, as spirit, are recognized for choosing to come to the Earthly plane to live the human dramas as lessons and for teaching other souls who have incarnated. The Divine Love is with us and supports our various projects in moving along the path toward higher consciousness. (This benefits all consciousness…)

If you “Know” and “Remember” these precepts, you are less attached to the dramas we experience and realize that these dramas are all neutral. Neither good or bad! Just maintaining our Equanimity as we proceed through these challenges reflects the highest (sorry, a judgement) level of enlightenment as we recognize the service we are proving in these lessons, for all participants, who, by the way, are simply a different form of ourselves… As our human consciousness develops we can remember more about our spirit’s life in the Higher Realms and can Know how powerful we are as Spirit.

This is a lot to consider. It does not always help to know that our human minds have severe limitations being based in a 3 dimensional world. We have come to our incarnations to have this “veil” thrown over our Spirit’s higher realm abilities. This makes our dramas seem so much more “real” to us and so our lessons become tests to learn from. Yup, shedding these limitations happens after we transition out of our incarnations. (As my transitioned wife told me through a psychic, “I am in a “better place,” which is bigger and better than you could ever imagine!” Beyond human comprehension… and, this was an answer to my daily prayers, since her passing, “I hope you are in a better place.” Though I “Knew” she was in the higher realms.)

Our lives are filled with challenges and events we label as important or difficult or Joyful. In Divine reality of spirit, these are all neutral but it helps to look for the “Joy” in the learning of each of our lessons… This is the Wisdom we can share and carry forward in the raising of our consciousness.

No matter where you are on your human journey, YOU are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

You Are Enough!

When the Universe provides a message, YOU should listen! When the message is not subtle there is no guess-work, you should pay attention. When you ask a question and the Divine Spirit answers in an unambiguous way, you know this message applies to you. And, when you receive an obvious answer which may apply to many other people, it would be wise to share this information. So, the Universe has asked me to tell YOU, You Are Enough! No one can do YOU better than you and you are essential!

Many of us, lack self-acceptance or self-confidence. We try to be something “more” or “different” than who we really are. We may think that more people will like us if we look or behave a certain way, even if the “Way” is unnatural or uncomfortable for who we really are… We may push ourselves to be successful in our work even if this is not healthy. The perceived attention seems worthwhile even if it triggers conflict and additional separation from co-workers and our own spiritual beliefs. This is not a plea to be unchanged and avoid growth. You do grow but do not change from external, cultural expectations if this is not who you are… “Know Thyself!” (From the Wisdom of the Ancient Greeks.)

On a recent walk in nature with my partner, we were enjoying being outdoors in nature. As we strolled along the path, we were looking for the “perfect” rock which might serve as a canvas for artwork and, once painted, this rock was destined to be of service through aesthetic appreciation. Painting rocks is a new hobby for my partner. On our conscious minds were the travails which our culture is currently attempting to resolve. Then, out of the blue, the Universe sends a direct and unsubtle message. We stumbled upon a painted rock which clearly and unmistakenly says in hand scripted words, “You Are Enough!” When a bolt of lightening from the Universal Consciousness reminds you that you are perfect just the way you are, you listen. Then, you want to share the message.

Now, many people walk around thinking that they are not “Good Enough” or rich enough or smart enough or whatever enough… This holds us back. This is an important lesson for us to learn in our human lives. When more fully enlightened, we realize that we are who we are to have the “lessons” in our specific human drama. These tests raise our consciousness and move us on to other challenges. Along the way we can be of service to other humans and share wisdom which we discover even in difficult situations which we may view as “failures.” It is what we are here to learn…

So, whether your mind allows you to believe it or not, I tell you, and the Universe backs me up on this, You are a perfect soul having a human experience. Your human experience may seem to you to be “human” however, you are here for a reason in this specific “drama” for specific lessons which are here to serve you and the people who cross your path. There are reasons these lessons are necessary for you and the fellow pilgrims you touch. You may not fully understand and your full understanding is not more important than your life’s attempts to push forward into higher consciousness.

No matter where you find yourself walking, look around, look down, and when the message presents itself, stop and honor the gift and your answered request. When possible, share your found wisdom and so spread the gift from the Divine Spirit!

No matter where you are on your human journey, YOU are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

Tis the Season

Yes, as always, “Tis the Season” to reflect upon the returning of the Light! This NEVER changes. Your Light is always needed. Your Heart and your Service shine brightly in every moment and are required to lead in developing consciousness and dissolving the barriers of separation. This is not a seasonal thing. This is a moment by moment exercise in raising Awareness and then Consciousness. You can do it! You Do it with every breath you take as an incarnated human. Your Perfect Soul burns brightly, whether your mind believes this or not. (This is not just an end of year thing while hoping for a redo in a New Year.)

For many people, the “Season of Giving,” takes precedence in the months of November and December as Winter develops in the Northern Hemisphere of our planet. People’s lives are more apt to consider giving presents, or donations of money or food or time, or of gathering with family and friends to brighten the darkness of shorter days. We celebrate the return of the Light which begins after December 21st in the Northern Hemisphere. Religious ceremonies were created to honor the times from before Western religions in pagan times. We light candles and pray for the birth of generosity as we reach out to support fellow pilgrims.

But, this is NOT just a seasonal activity for our souls. This is but another opportunity to “Share” and bring more light into the Darkness of Spirit in the shorter days and the more reflective period for the Northern Hemisphere. We really can embrace the sharing of the light throughout our yearly cycle around our Sun. The most Enlightened amongst us look to share the light in every moment we are allowed in our human incarnations. So, find your way to give the presence of YOU (presents are less required.) Stop and listen to a fellow traveler. Care for the people you bump into, YEAR Round! Look into their eyes and connect with the people you meet. Remember that everyone you are blessed to connect with is yet another form of YOU and we are ALL in this life together. Allow others to give to You as a gift so they will feel the awesomeness of Giving!

Do not think that you NEED to go shopping. No gift can be as sweet as a sharing from your Heart. Be Love. Share Love! Even in a pandemic, imagine that you can put your arms around a fellow traveller and support their journey with less judgement and unconditional loving concern… This IS the Light we pray for most to fully return.

No matter where you are on your human journey, YOU are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

Secrets to Happiness

Perhaps you have found that money, possessions, trips, your addictions, your career, even your relationships have NOT offered you the Happiness you expect and deserve. From research studies, a Yale psychology professor, course creator Laurie Santos, has developed and presented this class in person and now online (for free) to people wishing to explore the best possible activities to create a greater Happiness in their lives. (See link below for more information.)

One of the main findings comes from the Joy of Gratitude when engaged in “Giving.” Yes, your activity of serving another person in sincerity and with no strings attached, makes YOU feel good. More than buying yourself some new toy or vacation which tend to be temporary goals and distractions. The act of connection and giving your time and energy to another person is both satisfying and enhances your happiness. Of course there are many other factors in creating a life with more abundant happiness but this is a great place to start.

CNN’s story regarding this free online course from Yale University for their students, and YOU, regarding the secrets to Happiness. FREE course link and CNN story at: Yale’s Happiness Course If you take this course, you will wade through the theory of what has failed to make you Happy before you get to the application of the processes you can engage to make you more happy. Laurie states that awareness is NOT half the battle or the solution. Engaging in the positive alternative behaviors is what has the long term positive effects.

Perhaps you can begin by sharing your story and your wisdom. This is a gift which will reward you in many ways and has the possibility of expanding the perspective for your communication partner. It costs no money, but does require your desire to serve and your time. When sharing, make the story relevant to your witness and not as much about your ego’s need for attention… Perhaps, consider avoiding an over abundance of YOUR victimhood and instead focus on the Joy or Wisdom you have learned from your life’s experience. Be the Master of your Journey and share you wisdoms, or insights, freely. You will be happier for this service you provide…

On a deeper spiritual satisfaction level, you are a Master. Your Spirit is an important piece of the Universe and Divine Consciousness. Your choice to incarnate and enhance your consciousness through the lessons and drama you experience on the Earthly plain is of service to Divine Consciousness. Sharing your story and your wisdom is an act of service AND that is what you are here, incarnated, to do. When you can, look for the Joy found in the most challenging lessons and find your way to share with other pilgrims. By the Way, YOU get respect from other souls in the higher realms just for your choice to incarnate into all the Earthly drama… This makes YOU a Star!

You are a Soul having a “Human experience” and so realize that YOU are so much greater than your human existence can demonstrate. You are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

Since this blog post is coming out near the end of 2020, it is important to note that now, yes right now, the act of giving is not only creating happiness for you but it is serving our world which is depleted by our pandemic and economic challenges. Your efforts of giving through service do not have to be financially taxing. You can give of your time and from your heart. Even the gift of listening, witnessing another person’s story is an act of giving. Please consider finding your way of being of service and reaching out to show your care and concern for the people you bump into. This is needed now more than ever… And, “Happy Holidays” to you no matter when you are reading this blog. YOU are Loved and Cherished!!!

Creating Miracles

It may be easier than you THINK! You are already a Master creator even if you do not always “know” or “understand” this with your 3 dimensional, ego driven mind. Your human limitations do not make this an untruth, regarding your Miracle maker status. OK, what am I speaking about? It is my “Knowing” (and belief) that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Our souls/spirits are much greater than our limited human bodies and mental consciousness. We come into our human lives to have human “dramas” and our human lives are filled with lessons. We are testing out what our souls are learning in the higher realms of spiritual consciousness. With that said, we are “living” in our human dramas in a “created” environment which would look like a movie set to our souls as seen from the view point of the higher realms. We are limited by our human belief in linear time and three dimensional space which exist so our human minds can “understand” the Earthly human world we are living within (in our human incarnations.)

Wow, that is a lot to try to take in… OR, perhaps this is a concept that you already “Know” or have “Remembered.” Our human minds have difficulty finding words to describe the higher realms which are far beyond our human thinking… And, this is where our creation of miracles comes in. Our Universe is a miracle born out of Divine Spirit. But, our human lives are filled with 3 dimensional forms and concepts which come from “Our” consciousness. We are the master creators who construct our lives, our world, and unconsciously (to our human minds,) our lessons. Our souls in the higher realms have agreed to the lessons before we incarnate but our birthing into human form has created a veil of amnesia so we can bump into our lessons and test ourselves and our “learnings.”

You are a Miracle! You are Loved and Supported by the Divine Spirit! You are having a human experience which, at a much higher level, you have agreed to have. AND, you have created the life and the world which you have chosen to engage… Your lessons and your life are PERFECT! You may want to judge these as difficult but you were supposed to live your human life and figure your way through this experience. Yes, even if it is brutal and seemingly, unfair. No one ever said life was supposed to be easy or even “nice.” Our human minds want our lives to be easy, or positive, or filled with joy and happiness. You have a choice. You can find “Joy” even within the most challenging experiences. Humans do this all the time. For me, my arm breaking, my wife dying, and my struggles with aging can ALL be known and remembered with the Joy of the spectacular lessons survived.

If you are like me, you learn from the difficult life tests more than the easy experiences which went as “expected.” My stories and my shared learnings are so much more of service when these are attached to the difficult life experiences which I have survived, and learned from. AND, asking for your lessons and then listening (or feeling) for the response from your higher self can open doors when you may only be viewing the pain from a human experience. The death of a loved one fits this well. When my wife transitioned, I knew she was “in a better place” however, I was left in my human life with a vacuum of grief to deal with. Now, I can assist other men who have become widowers to better know or understand the lessons in these difficult human experiences. Everyone of us is unique. Our experiences are unique. However, the support from another person who has learning to share after surviving a similar life experience can help each and everyone involved in this supportive sharing…

Miracles can be born from your conscious expression and then your positive intention. Often it helps to let go of expectations or the “strings attached” to an outcome. If your requests are to be of positive service and for the raising of consciousness of all mankind (and then Universal consciousness,) you will be loved and supported in this requested miracle. Being joyful and unattached to human expectations helps, but can be challenging to find.

You are a Miracle! Thank you for being you. AND, thank you for the service YOU provide. Even the simple act of listening to another soul’s story telling can be of service, both to them and to you. You are Loved!

Thanks for your time and consideration. Your insights and experiences are unique and a blessing, so please share these…

The “Veil” a Perspective

Crossing the Veil is a spiritual concept which may bring you closer to the Divine Spirit or the “Source” or the “Higher Realms”… But, what is the Veil? Why does it keep souls incarnated as humans (or other life forms) from knowing the Higher Realms? I recently heard a presentation by Robert Schwartz who had an interesting perspective regarding the Veil which I had not heard before. Rob Schwartz is a hypnotherapist who has worked with many clients to better connect with and understand their life’s purpose by “examining” the “agreements” regarding coming into their human incarnations. He claims that he has witnessed the Veil as translucent curtain which serves a great purpose. Rob claims that the Veil is a good thing. It creates a barrier to fully knowing who we are (as a perfect soul) and where we come from (in the Higher Realms.) This allows us to ask good questions until we rejoin the “higher realms” where we know everything. The Veil allows us to explore lessons as the learning challenges we are here, in our human lives, to have.

We come into human incarnations to experience the dramas of life on Earth. If we were more fully “Enlightened” in our human lives, we might not get so caught up in the our lives. We might not have to learn that we are perfect, because we are and this would get in the way of the “fun.” We would not have to learn that there is Joy to be found in every experience, even the painful challenges. We would remember and know Unconditional Love. We would know we are supported no matter what we do and not Judged. Life on Earth would not be the “Adventure Travel” experience which it appears, to higher souls, to be. (If the “Veil,” as a barrier to pure consciousness, was not in place for our human minds, we may lose motivation to “do the work” in our current lives…)

The struggles and challenges we have in our human incarnations have great value as learning experiences. We consciously or unconsciously strive for higher consciousness and travel our lives with the goal of “Enlightenment.” If the Veil did not obscure the remembering of the Higher Realms from our human lives, the scavenger hunt we are living would not be so desperate and driven. If life on Earth was so super high in consciousness without the Veil, we would not be given respect and medals for surviving our visit to the Earthly plane (Which is my humor popping through.)

I am Sad and Depressed Everyday

How would you respond? What words can you convey to be of service? Can you feel empathy?

Comment which was received anonymously from a past blog posting:
“I am extremely sad and depressed everyday. Cry a lot. Think about suicide all the time. As a 54 yr old female, I am wondering how to achieve enlightenment to elevate my soul and spirit…”

How do YOU respond to this comment… So this is the Response from Guidance:

“Thank you for your comment. I am sorry that you feel sad and depressed everyday. Life is a Miracle. Living can be brutal. Perhaps you can set out everyday to find one miracle in your world. Look for it. Find it. Feel it. AND, Know it…
This may be difficult to believe but even though you feel unhappy, you are a Miracle. You are amazing. No one else could do what you do. If you shared your life’s story, people would think that you are a SuperWoman to have survived. You have wisdom to share AND do not miss the opportunity to share your wisdom, even if what you share is what not to do… Your warning may change someone’s life.

By answering your comment, my day has been changed. Thank You.
You are a Blessing!
When possible, find Joy even in the darkest day or the most difficult challenge. This is easier said than done BUT you can get good at this… by… looking for the miracles and the good there is to find…

Please take good care of yourself. I am sending you my love and my thanks.”

Additional thoughts from Guidance:

Most people find times in their human lives which do not feel happy. It is part of our challenge to live as humans in a world which often teaches through pain or fear or anxious uncertainties. Perhaps we survive and feel stronger and more resilient. Perhaps we survive and feel scarred and broken. The difficulties we face are part of the “drama” we sign up for as spiritual beings come to have “human” experiences. And, Pain is real, suffering is optional…

Life has its physical, emotional, and spiritual pain. These lessons are essential. How we deal with our losses, our pains, and our life challenges is an option we have. If you want to carry your victimhood as suffering, you have that as a choice AND as a lesson.

“That which does not kill us, makes us stronger” is attributed to the German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche and delivers wisdom worth sharing. (It also reflects upon our life experience as an affirmation of resilience.) No Guide from the Divine ever said that human life would be always easy or fun. The times when we often learn the most are when we are most tested. However, living life in a state of constant sadness or depression is probably not the intention for every soul walking the Earth. We are tested and true “Enlightenment” often includes the ability to find light and joy in every dark corner of our lives. Not as a Pollyannaish response but as a reverence for all lessons, especially the tough ones.

Even the wealthiest humans amongst us can NOT buy eternal happiness or, more importantly, spiritual satisfaction and wisdom with their financial wealth reserves. In fact, for many people, wealth or the desire for wealth can get in the way of the deepest spiritual insights. (Consider the story of Siddhartha.) Wealth is not bad however its focused pursuit can get in the way of being most fully “present” and then acting on the path toward “Enlightenment” in your human incarnation… (This reflects My opinion based on my guidance…)

“Enlightenment” includes non-judgement, empathy, acceptance, and equanimity of other pilgrims and the interactions which occur. The practice of an Enlightened being includes unconditional love of all souls even the ones who you bump into who teach you lessons as your seemingly polar opposites. A common lesson on the path to “Enlightenment” entails taking full responsibility for the path you are following. No one else has made the choices you have made and you empower yourself by assuming your responsibility to both “good” and the difficult circumstances you may experience along the way. YOU have more power to create than you are consciously aware of in your human existence! (If you do not like your life’s path, change it! If people do not like you, you could change or find new people or learn from this difficult and awkward situation. Quit making the same mistake over and over or accept this condition in your temporary incarnation.)

Depression and Sadness are not uncommon human experiences. Our choice is to “suffer.” On the other side of living a human life, there are miraculous experiences and joy to be found in every day which you are blessed to live.

YOU are a Blessing! You are a Miracle! No one else can do “You” better than you and the Divine Spirit would be incomplete without what your soul brings to our Universe. Thank you for being you… You are LOVED!

You are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.
