New Ideas and Inspiration - What Do You Think?

What are your plans for the coming year? I have been thinking about this a lot over the last few weeks; wondering how I can serve in a deeper, more meaningful way.

I also ask myself on a daily basis, "How can I offer more laughter, more joy and greater peace to those around me?"

Here are some ideas that have been playing in my mind as I meditate and journal. I would love your feedback. Send me a message on facebook or email - or let me know your thoughts at your next appointment.

I would like to offer a Client Membership which would include weekly appointments, monthly circles, product, program and book discounts, as well as few extra goodies and inspirational ideas.

The monthly circle will be back and can be incorporated as part of the membership or you can choose to just attend the circle. This will be open to anyone over the age of 18 or over the age of 15 if accompanied by a parent or other adult designated by a parent. This gathering will be directed by the attendees, but will include meditation, life discussions, laughter and inspiration.

Home Parties will be offered with free treatments or reading for the host(ess) - you gather the people, set the theme and I will provide the services. See my Course and Events tab for more info.

I am also working on ideas for those of you at a distance. It is my desire to bring us all closer together but the details are still in the planning stages. If you have suggestions, please help me out.

There are many predictions for 2012, and it is my belief that it time to gather together as community, and to choose what we wish to be in the world.

Your ideas and feedback would be greatly appreciated. Post your comments here, send me an email, post on facebook or give me a call.

Wishing for All - A Year of Love, Peace, Joy, Health and Prosperity

Just For Today I Will See the Sweetness in Life

I woke up this morning with a feeling of joyful anticipation. I've noticed this feeling a lot these past few months. Then I begin to wonder what will happen today? Why am I having this feeling? I question how I could be feeling this way with all I have to do, my responsibilities, the sadness of friends, and trivial worries I harbor.  The feeling disappears. I did something different this morning - I smiled to myself and out loud to the Universe, I affirmed, "Thank You". The feeling remains. I consciously decided last night before I went to sleep to do something different, when that peaceful, happy feeling arrived. I planted the idea of holding on to whatever I felt as I was waking. I remember a part of a dream where hummingbird reminded me of the sweetness in life, explaining it is always there we just forget to allow it - we look past it to the problems we think we are having. Even now fully awake, I see the truth of the dream.

Have you ever noticed in the moment before you are fully awake, you feel a sense of peace or joy, or perhaps you feel a deep sense of love for life? Then you begin to think of all you have to do today, or the phone call you forgot to return yesterday. Worries about what will be or how the day will turn out start to set in as you come fully awake, and in an instant the original moment of bliss is gone.

During the deepest part of our sleep, our minds and bodies are given opportunity to heal. Worries and fears disappear as we become more attuned to Spirit, knowing we are safe, loved and protected. Our dreams often show us the way out of difficulty, restoring balance. As we are waking we hold on to the knowing we are guided, that life is meant to be joyful and that all is just as it is supposed to be. Then we allow the mind to take over, reminding us of all we think is not so great in our world. We override the peace or joy or love, as we begin the to do list in our heads, wondering how we will make it through the day. The dream containing the solution is lost from our conscious mind, and once again we feel alone, having to face the difficulties on our own.

What if we held on to whatever feeling we had when we awoke? What if we just trusted the gift we were given in our sleep? What if we let ourselves believe that all would be well during the day? What if we knew there was nothing to fear or worry about? What if everything that happened during the day was a gift guiding us toward the joyful anticipation of life?

I have decided to try this new way of looking at all that is happening around me. For years I have affirmed that All is Well in My World, among many other inspirational thoughts as they come sporadically throughout the day. I read the Reiki Prayer - Just for today I will not be Angry. Just for today I will not Worry. Just for today I will be Thankful. Just for today I will do my work Honestly. Just for today I will send love to every living thing. But today, I am adding - Just for today I will accept the gift of joy anticipation and see where it leads. Today I will not let all that appears to be wrong with the world, be wrong. There is a reason for all things and I trust the Universe. For today I will just notice what happens and without judgment be grateful for life.

If you would like to join me in this adventure, add your comments. If we all become more accepting of the peace we wake up with perhaps our lives would begin to reflect those thoughts instead of all the worry, fear, grief, anger and guilt we now experience.

Blessings to All

Honest Expression Creates Health

As I sit watching the sun come up I realize that even in the moments of sadness, loss, fear and doubt we can find peace. There is no shame in the truth of how we feel.

As much as I promote being in a place of joy, love and gratitude, there are times when we are sad, angry, indecisive, and ungrateful. Using these honest feelings to understand your boundaries, values and beliefs can be invaluable. When we allow the less than happy thoughts and feelings to pass through us, we become stronger. Expressing sorrow in times of loss is healing. Feeling pain when we have been hurt is normal. I see too many who are afraid to express their anger, bottling it up inside for fear of hurting someone else, or afraid of what others may say about them. That is not healthy.

True joy and exceptional health come when we are able to deal with the emotions as they arise. Being honest with ourselves and others, opens communication, expands our heart space and clears a place for shifting our perception of an event or situation. Once cleared healing can begin.

True strength and character come when we are able to be honest in our expression, maintaining integrity within ourselves. There are constructive ways to release heavy, unloving emotions. You can state what is hurting you, cry, relay anger, share your guilt, shame or disappointment without unnecessary drama or hurtful, demeaning words. Stick to the emotions you are feeling. Don't place blame on the other person or group. Take responsibility for your perception of the situation. Listen to the other side of the story.

Remember no one has the power to hurt you, make you angry, or even to make you happy. Only you have control over how you react to anything. If another's action or words invoke a feeling in you, ask yourself where this feeling originates. What do I need to understand about myself, to take this to heart? Am I seeing a truth about myself, that I don't like? How could I see and feel differently? Does what I am thinking and feeling matter enough to ruin my day? Are these even my feelings and thoughts or are they a programmed response based on someone else's system of beliefs and values?

I think of boundaries in terms of what am I willing to give my energy to? Being upset is one of the greatest energy zappers in our lives. When a loved one upsets us it is probably worth the time and effort to work through what is going on inside of us, and explain how the behavior hurts us. Too often though we allow strangers to affect our day, as we rerun the scenario over and over in our mind. Is it worth it? How is it serving you?

Journalling, walking, gardening, prayer are all healthy ways to release pent up emotions. Next time you have a desire to yell, scream, vent or blame another, find a quiet place to review what is really going on. Hurting others in order to feel better in the moment usually creates further guilt - is it worth giving your energy to that?

Every year at this time I am reminded of life on the farm. This was always a traditional weekend of being genuinely grateful. Though there were years we were still combining, there was a feeling of abundance in the air; a knowing that the crop would soon be off and the bins filled.

This year, the crispness of the air, the warmth of the sun and the breeze gently drying the morning dew, reminds me so much of those harvest days. I miss watching golden grain flow from combine to truck, from the truck into the bin. Even better were the years when the bins were full, so we were forced to set up make-shift bins to hold the grain until we could take it to the elevator. The air filled with scents of fall - hay, grain dust, drying leaves, the damp fertile earth.

Today as I stand on my deck, taking a deep breath, I take in that same aroma of fall and give thanks for the farmers who work so hard to provide us with nutritious, delicious foods. I am grateful for those who process and package these same foods, as well as the stores that stock it. We are so blessed with choices. We often take our abundant lives for granted.

Even the turning leaves are the color of gold. Looking over a valley with its opulent oranges, reds, golds and yellows brings awareness of the richness of our lives. Take a moment today to look around you. Go for a walk, taking in the sights, smells and sounds of fall. Even though it means winter will soon be upon us, take this time to be grateful for all the seasons provide for us.

If you are one who has trouble remembering to be thankful for each day, take a dry erase marker or glass writer and put the words "Attitude of Gratitude" on your bathroom mirror or on a window you look out often. You may also wish to write other affirmations of thanksgiving or well-being. This is one sure way of never allowing yourself to take the Blessing of Life for granted.

Remember the more grateful you are in each moment, the more each moment gives you something to be grateful for.

Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving weekend and a year of abundance and prosperity, filled with appreciation for all that life provides.

Dear Mother Earth

Dear Mother Earth
I think we have all been a bit hard on you lately, complaining, worrying and wondering. I write this in appreciation for all you are and all you do to keep our earth in balance.

For the strength and energy you provide us all, I give thanks. You bless us with such beauty, at times it takes my breath away. The joy of seeing a rainbow, lifts me up, and I appreciate your gentle breeze against my skin. I sigh as I think of the warmth of the winter sun and the sparkly diamonds in the snow. As I watch the sunrise, I feel artistry as you paint the sky and again in the evening as you bring the sun to rest. I sit in awe of your attention to detail and your enduring schedule, never off a beat. We rely on the seasons you created, and feel the changes you so desperately need to make at this time. I trust, for this earth has carried many generations before me.

Of late you have had to remind us that you are power; you have the power to cleanse and restore. So many of your children recoil, in fear. I reach out to embrace you. I felt your power and perserverance, standing by the ocean this summer. It filled me up, offering such peace as I felt the ebb and flow of your cycles. I felt a  sense of never ending abundance. Yet, I also pictured in my mind the force with which you could strike down everything on that coastline. I respect you and give thanks.

I  think of new growth after a harsh cold winter, and have seen new growth of lush forest after a fire. I feel your vibration as lightening flashes and thunder crashes and I give thanks. How peacefully I sleep as rain drizzles down and pelts against the roof and windows. There is such protection in your arms. I watch the stars and notice the moon, bringing magic and mystery to our lives.

Yes, you hear us all complain because it's raining, too cold, too hot, too windy, too calm. You feel our fear as the air fills with smoke, or we watch the map for the path of a tornado, or hurricane. We, your spoiled children must learn our place in the mystery, in the ebb and flow. As we sit in your heart, the earth may shake, but we will not falter. The winds may blow and the waters rise, but we will survive. You are the giver of life, our breath, our peace, our sanctuary. Mother, I send you love and give thanks.

I also give thanks to my daughter who inspired this writing as she spoke to me of the peace and beauty she felt while visiting Jasper - being one with our Mother. it was she, who made me see how often we forget to appreciate this force of nature that keeps us, nurtures us, and sustains our life. I ask everyone reading this to just take a moment and send love and gratitude for the many blessings in our lives.

As I write this I am listening to an owl calling out, wishing me a wonderful day. Thank you Mother Nature.

Become an Empty Vessel

Can you allow yourself to become empty? Can you allow yourself to release everything, the good, the bad, the hopes, and fears? Can you simply give it all up and ask Spirit to fill you back up with all you were created to be? Ask to be erased of all social and family programming, and be restored to your personal blueprint.

Sit quietly with pen and paper or your laptop. Take a few deep breaths and as thoughts of things, people, ideas, worries, dreams, fears, hopes, wishes, place, events, and circumstances come into your mind, write them out saying "I release this to Spirit" "I become an empty vessel ready to be filled with who I AM."

This process works well with house cleaning and clearing. You probably know the feeling of sadness as you choose to give up some of your treasures, even though they no longer suit your home or environment. As you put them in a give away bag, or garage sale, there is a twinge of regret. Do you also know the feeling of finally clearing space of garbage and broken junk, worn out and no longer useable? It feels good to finally throw the broken pieces in the trash. As you look around your uncluttered space, can you feel the sense of freedom and expansion? It is like you have a larger home.

Clearing your internal house creates the same expansion and freedom.  Often it is harder to find the mental and emotional garbage. We seem to store the internal junk in a much deeper place than even the worn out christmas ornaments. Why is it so hard to let go of even the biggest hurts, and deepest pain? Do you notice you can more easily release your joy, hopes and dreams, than release your disappointments, jealousy and anger?

Strange how we find security in painful memories and history filled with ideas of loss and suffering. Some people would rather give up their brand new bedroom suite, than donate a piece of furniture reminding them of an unhappy relationship. Too often we give up marvelous opportunities, in order to hold on to the fear of failure, or perhaps the familiarity of that failure. We know the outcome, so there is less fear in staying stuck, just as there is familiarity in the worn out sofa purchased with our first spouse.

If you have ever had children, or are thinking about having children, ask yourself why. This may require some humor, especially for those of us who have finally raised our children and know the good and bad, the joy and pain accompanying the growing years.

Do you remember how you thought about the idea? Did you plan on having children so they could have a miserable life and create even more misery in yours? Did you plan to have children to inflict pain on suffering?

Why do you allow yourself to think your parents had you in order to give you the opportunity to be unhappy? An even deeper question - Why do you think you were created by Spirit? Do you really think your creator, wanted to express depression, pain and illness through you?

Look around at the never ending blue sky (it is still a deep clear blue above the clouds). See the lush green of the trees and grass, and even the abundance of clover, dandelions. Feel the gentle warmth of the sun on your skin, the gentle breeze. Open yourself up to the high energy of a thunder storm. Watch as the rain clears the dust and grime from the leaves of the plants outside your door. Even in the destruction Mother Nature occasionally unleashes, we find new growth and new beauty. There is never anything destroyed that is not replaced with even more beauty than before. Is there any part of you that can honestly say you believe you were created to live in lack, when all you see is the abundance and beauty of creation? Can any of you say you would create another being to live in lack of any kind? I think not.

So what if you created the internal storm, washing away both what you believe is good and bad? What if you allowed yourself to be free of anything and everything that is now, so that you could be refilled without prejudice or judgment of old worn out beliefs and memories? Wouldn't it feel amazing to let go of the heart break? If you give it a chance it will feel even better to be rid of what you think makes you happy, and find bliss and peace instead.

Try it - it may take several days, weeks, perhaps even months, but clear out the trash and treasure possessions deep within and on the surface. Make room and space for renovation and restoration. Give yourself permission to trust the Source of your Creation, the Source of your Supply. Just as you choose to give your children everything you can to provide them with all the love and support they need, your original Creator chooses the same for you.

Remembering Who You Are & Why You Are Here

I have been sitting with the workbook, considering how I can present the material each week, so participants can really feel the blessing of life. As I ponder the material I realize there are three things I would hope to have everyone walk away from the 8 week program knowing in their hearts:

We put too much stress on ourselves, trying to be what society has decided we need to be. We put too much stress on the need to control ourselves, our lives, our circumstances. We live in fear that if we don't meet the expectations of our loved ones, we will lose them, if we do not perform exactly according to the standard of our bosses, we will be unemployed, if we don't give our children everything they want, they will hate us...... Before we know it we have forgotten who we really are.

Then we go for help in sorting out the mess and we are told - well change this or that and everything will work out. In a short time we notice that yes, things have changed, but we still haven't lost the fear or need to be accepted and appreciated by others. We are still unhappy.

We turn again for help and we are told - forgive yourself - and at once we take on the acceptance that we are the cause of all the problems. We beat ourselves up for all the mistakes and errors of our past and remember our parents telling us all the things that made us fearful of rejection in the past. We may not remember them all, but our subconscious does, and our ego just loves to remind us. And in the admission of asking ourselves for forgiveness we enforce within ourselves the idea or belief that we are bad people - you can add your own label here.

Instead of forgiving yourself, why not just start loving yourself? Why not say to yourself, I made a mistake, I could have chosen something different. I accept what I did, understanding that there was a lesson to be learned for all parties involved. In the same way you let go of the little hurts your children cause you, continuing to love them unconditionally, can you not do the same for yourself? Can you not give yourself a hug, agree to remember the lesson, and carry on knowing you can make a different choice next time a similar situation arises?

We were created to be an expression of Spirit. There were certain lessons, and ideals we agreed to work on for the expression of our Creator. Like being an actor, taking a part, we chose a role, to assist our soul in growing and loving unconditionally. In order to learn the lesson, accept the belief there are certain scenarios that must take place, in one form or another. So, even as you act in ways that are less than perfect, you are merely playing the role in a movie you contracted to play. The best way to have a happy ending is to accept, release and love your way through the bad times.

I often feel I am a character in a video game, moving from level to level, dodging the obstacles, moving debris out of the way, sidestepping the bad guy and racing for a finish line. It is exhausting, creates sleepless nights, and causes all kinds of aches and pains in my physical body. Ever feel that way?

I end the game when I take time to breathe, to realize, I can let go of the need to struggle and fight my way through life. I can breathe, relax and allow Spirit to guide me. As I do I feel the flow, and transcend each level in peace, joy and love. Ahhhhh ..... how much better I feel.

You are not broken. You have been programmed with a lot of harmful, self-destructive beliefs. You are programmed to believe you are not good enough, and you must continually change and fix yourself until you meet a certain standard - and the bar keeps raising, leaving you feeling even less than the perfection you truly are. As we learn what these beliefs are and reprogram our self conscious, our world begins to shift and change - it is not us who are changing, only the world around us. We become more as we were created - pure, divine love. Our body stops revolting against the stress we have caused it. Our minds become more clear, and the thoughts more peaceful. Those things we desire for our lives begin to magically appear.

Once again we remember the perfection we knew at the time of our conception, and even at our birth. Wouldn't it be nice to understand how to take responsibility for your life, to create the peace, joy health and prosperity you dream of, without the need to rigidly control all the circumstances, knowing there is an energy doing the work for you, if you are willing to let go and get out of the way?

There is, and when I give myself permission, to just be me, I find pure health, bliss, and abundance are all around me and within me.

Are you willing and ready to let go and receive?

The Miracle of Self Healing

I was asked the other day where I get the idea that we can heal ourselves. I understand that for many this concept is vague at best and unbelievable for most. So what gives me the right to constantly affirm that self healing is not a miracle - rather it is a decision we make. The miracle is in the creation of our bodies, giving us the tools and resources to manifest our own health.

I have been blessed to prove this to myself. Beginning at thirteen, I overcame a very serious ulcer. At the age of eighteen I convinced surgeons that I did not need knee surgery, proclaiming that I would find a way to continue dancing until I was 90, even though they assured me I would not be walking past the age of 30. At 45 there was talk of a wheel chair due to a deteriorating spine. At that time walking was painful, almost impossible, but I said NO, emphatically and sought help outside the medical realms, changed my attitude, worked on my fears and guess what, 10 years later - I'm still walking, feeling better than ever.

At about 48 I was reminded that attitude, beliefs, fear, anger and inability to forgive cause disease. Again, when traditional medical staff offered doom and gloom for my future, I said NO.

Illness is an invitation to heal what is going on in the heart and mind. The body is just an expression of our thoughts and emotions. We heal when we are ready to let go of the toxic emotions and thoughts, trading them for more life-affirming attitudes and beliefs.

I am not the only example of self healing. Look at the many cancer survivors. Think of how many people you know who have overcome serious injury or illness. Yes, we call it a miracle. It is. The point though is miracles lie dormant within each of us.

I feel blessed to know and understand we all have the ability to express the miracle we are. Self Healing is part of our make-up. Healing is not about physical health. Physical health is created when we connect with our Soul, releasing what is toxic in our minds.

Our creator put this machine; we call a body, together with care and precise thought. When our minds were created, we were programmed with perfection and given all the "thinking" tools required for ultimate operation. But, as is often the case, we forgot to read the manual, or we threw it away, before we were fully adept on the use and care of this precious creation.

The one hang-up in the whole system was the creation of self-will. Over the years we have been programmed to believe that we need to be fully in control. We have been programmed with beliefs of incompetence and seperation from the manufacturer of our most valuable asset. Many believe they were created with defects. There is a reason you are not under warranty. You were created in perfection, and through choices your perfect life is available - but you may have to read the operating instructions and make a few tiny adjustments in order to get everything back in working order.

The manual still exists. It is a program that cannot be erased or deleted. It sits in a hidden file within your operating system. Another reason to "go within" for the answers.

As I have said many times, we are one of the most unique, and precious, irreplaceable pieces of art available, yet we treat our bodies with less attention and love than we do a pretty picture picked up at WalMart.

This article is not about blame. It is written to provide awareness that Miracles are found in using the Operators Manual for creating with Spirit. Miracles happen when we follow Universal Laws and let go of beliefs, thoughts and emotions that are blocking us from our best life.

I urge each of you reading this to consider why things aren't working in your life - whether it is health, wealth or happiness. CREATE YOUR OWN MIRACLE TODAY.

Miracles and the Soul

Sit quietly for just a moment. Focus on your heart center. Fill it with all the love you can possibly feel. Continue to fill that space with all of the expressions of love – forgiveness, gratitude, compassion, joy, peace, prosperity, vibrant health. You have just experienced a miracle!

According to A Course In Miracles, “miracles occur naturally as expressions of love”. Miracles are happening all the time, everywhere to everyone, but our perception of daily life blocks the idea of a miracle occurring. It is only when someone is rescued from death, instantly healed, or receives unexpected abundance that we declare a miracle. In awe, we speak of the event, as though it is an unnatural or abnormal occurrence. In those times when we forget our humanness and allow the Spirit of God to take control, miracles happen. In truth, miracles are not meant to bring awe, but to inspire gratitude and healing to areas of your life where you feel lack and fear.

All of us have the ability to provide miracles, through our forgiveness of others and ourselves. When we fill a need in the life of another, pour love out to the world without condition, or finally accept our own holiness, we have been a co-creator in a miracle.

We are all expressions of the miracle of life. Those who have children, feel the miracle at the birth of their children. At birth, we are still able to feel and know the soul of this new physical body. Life has not erased their memory. The love and trust that emanates from this little being, allows our soul to connect to theirs and unconditional love forms an eternal bond.

Each of us, created as miracle, cannot lose that essence, even with age. As we grow older and begin to see, feel and hear the beliefs and paradigms of our care-givers, we lose touch with the inner guidance and knowing. We are told what is right and wrong. We are told what to do "for our own good". We are disciplined for certain behaviors, and congratulated for others. Most of these decisions are based on the beliefs of our parents and grandparents.

When we see our angels and guides and tell the adults in our life, they are called imaginary friends. We lose faith in what we see and faith in ourselves for believing that these loving beings exist. It is here we begin to lose our faith in love, in our creator, in ourselves. The miracles are gone.

Yet where do we get the strength to rescue someone from a burning building, pull a child out of the way of a moving vehicle, carry someone for miles to safety? What is this voice that comes in the instant of danger and seemingly changes a traffic pattern, so we avoid an accident? How do we know not to take a specific route, a particular flight? How do we know that today is not a good day to go work and later find their has been a threat to life during the time we would have been on the subway, at the bank or in our office building? How do healing miracles occur?

We need only look to our soul, and believe once again in "imaginary friends" to find the answer.

Sit quietly for just a moment. Focus on your heart center. Fill it with all the love you can possibly feel. This itself is a miracle and a way to return to the innocence and trust of a child. With that unconditional love miracles are an everyday, normal occurence. Life becomes a new adventure, filled with endless possibility?

What miracle will you be today?

What Would Your Soul Like To Tell You?

It is a beautiful summer morning. The birds are singing. The sky shines silver with the rising sun. The grass glows a vibrant green, fresh with dew. As I sit with my morning coffee, allowing the stillness to slowly awaken my mind and body, I wonder what my soul would like to tell me today. What would be my soul's greatest desire?

Have you ever thought about that?

We, in this mind and body, are here for a very short time, yet our soul has existed for an eternity and will go on existing forever. Are we not here for the expression and education of this soul? If you let this idea flow through you, you may feel the truth of it. Why else are we here?

I have often gone through the exercise of asking the soul a question and then allowing my pen to write the answer. This morning as I did this exercise, I found myself really wondering what I would do differently if I communicated more often and more clearly with my soul.  I seldom stop to ask my soul about choices and decisions. Am I being the greatest expression of my soul's desire? What would my soul do in any situation, if I allowed myself to listen?

Perhaps life is not so much about the petty desires, the mistakes, the successes.  Am I living in a way that serves the future of my soul? Am I gifting my soul with joyful memories to carry to eternity, or am I clouding the soul with sorrow and defeat? If I gave my soul a chance to speak would I see life differently?

I think of the eternal life of the soul, and wonder at the knowledge that lies within this part of me. Can we begin to imagine all that has gone on before? Here is the greatest storehouse of our past and future, yet we ignore or forget it's existence. As I write this, I can only feel how sorry I am for treating it as children treat parents - "How would you know how I feel or what is best for me?"

Of course our soul knows. What part of us could know more about us? Until recently, when I talked or thought about "going within" for the answers I looked to my heart. But I realize that our heart is often overshadowed by the mind and current life experience. Now, as I look to my soul for answers, I find there is soft detachment with no consideration for the personal experience. Within the soul lies global experience - how our actions, thoughts and feeling contribute to energy throughout the Universe, through time and space.

The soul does not offer advice as such, but gives fuel to passion, kindness to anger, patience to anxiety. The soul knows who we are today affects everything and everyone on this planet and in this galaxy, not just today but on into infinity.  I ask myself, do I want this thought or this action to create my future or the future of others?

If you ask and listen, your soul will give you answers. Maybe not in ordinary, expected ways, but you will know when you hear, see or feel the knowing within. It may come as a thought when you first awaken, before the mind has time to engage. It may come as a dream or a conversation with a stranger or friend. It may come in a news flash, or a song on the radio. It may come as a feeling drifting over you, leaving peace amidst chaos, or a sudden creative idea.

However it appears, trust that your soul is always absorbing everything you say, think and do. The soul knows and supports you fully. It is the soul that gives life to your body and it is the soul that will live on after your body dies. Today I ask "Soul, what is your greatest desire?" "What would you like me to know today?" "What is the best way for me to be in this situation?" "What can I do to serve your eternal life?"

Just For Today I Will Not Judge

Today I will not judge myself or others. I will not judge circumstances or events. I will take each moment without analyzing it as good or bad and just accept it. Today I will allow myself to see the greater picture of cause and effect, rather than the narrow view of personal hurt or celebration.
