Renew your spirit

If your spirit is heartsick and your heart is grieving, all the objects, money, luxury, and comfort in your life will be like dust to you. People and activities that were once interesting may seem petty and trivial.

Remember, dear ones, the human heart and spirit can be renewed and made whole again. A torn, threadbare, and dusty tapestry can be carefully rewoven, mended, and cleaned.

Your disrupted energy can be balanced and cleared of dark clouds. When your energy is in harmony, your spirit is fulfilled, and your heart is satisfied, you set the tone for true engagement and full participation in life.

No matter what you are feeling, your spirit possesses the knowledge at some level that wholeness is possible for you, that you are worthy of joy, clarity, and good health.

When you are ready to make this wholeness manifest in your life, ask the universe to support your healing journey. Be open to the guidance you receive, and act on it.

Balance

This life is so much more than “earning a living” -receiving a paycheck for expending your life’s energy in front of a computer screen, at a desk, in a factory You may love you work, be good at it and look forward to it…

Is there balance in your life? Do you allow yourself rest and play? Time with others, time alone?

Do you allow yourself actions that make your soul shine, your heart sing? Can you relax and enjoy quiet time without defining yourself as lazy?

Do you tune into your heart and ask if you’re on the right track? Do you correct your course when you veer off your path?

The heart calculates so much more than the money and physical abundance circulating in your life. Your heart calculates your deepest dreams and desires, the purpose of your spirit, the need for all living things to connect with others and with the earth, our deep longing for oneness.

Tune into your heart and find out how to live a balanced and whole life that will satisfy every level of your being – Body, mind, spirit, and emotions.

Flow

What do you resist, my dears?

When you were a child, did you resist your bath-time, bedtime, school? Did you resist the rules imposed on you by authority figures?

Now that you are the authority figure in your life, an autonomous being, what do you resist?

Resisting anything creates energetic armor, blocks in your energy field. Resistance creates tightness where there could be flow, disease where there could be harmony, tension where there could be ease, disconnection where there could be wholeness.

Does a fast moving stream push against the boulder and use all its strength to resist its bulk and weight? The stream simply flows around the boulder with ease. The boulder is irrelevant to the mission of the stream, which is to flow with ease.

What obstacles, or boulders do you encounter in your life? Can you flow around them like a river?

When you push against, strain and fight, struggle and resist the obstacles in your way, you block your flow and cause conflict both within you and outside of you.

When you allow the energy of your body and life to flow freely, your creative inspiration will provide surprising solutions to the boulders you encounter.

Patient like a tree

Can you be patient like a tree?

Can you stand steadfast when the storms rage? Can you set forth leaves blossoms and fruit when the season is right?

Can you let go of the old, the superfluous, last year’s leaves when they no longer feed your heart and soul? Can you rest and sleep and pull your attention inward during the long winter, gathering strength for the growth to come?

Can you feel the magnetic pull of mother earth in your roots, allowing them to be pulled into the soil and subsoil so you will be anchored deeply to your home? No matter how high and wide your reach, your deep roots will keep you secure through all seasons and all weather.

Can you allow your branches and leaves to reach and turn to the sun, to soak up and absorb the life giving light and warmth? These precious gifts are freely given to you!  They are your birthright!

When you stand tall and steadfast, when you live according to your life’s rhythms, you bless this earth with your presence; you know you belong here, a vital element in life’s tapestry. You will endure!

The foundation of your life

You may be under the impression that your life is built on a foundation and structure of bone and muscle, ligaments, connective tissue and sinew. You may believe that food is your fuel and energy supply, that blood is your life force.

Look deeper, dear ones! At the physical level, you are supported by bone and fueled by food. But deeper within your being lies the framework for your life, and the fabric of energy which underlies your body, gives it form, connects you to all that is.

Your spirit is the endless source of your energy and inspiration, fuel for you life and satisfaction for your soul.

While you live on this earth you must take good care of your body, feed yourself, stay warm and dry- survive as a physical being. But, to truly thrive you must care for your spirit.  Care for it with the same attention you give to your body!

Care for the energy tapestry that is the true foundation of your existence, underpinning the body.  Your spirit calls you to live large, to embrace the expanded view of yourself, to experience the whole of you.

Your spirit is all that you know to be you, your thought patterns, feelings, emotions, ideas, intuitions, beliefs, opinions, dreams, hopes, plans, motivations, connections with others, with all that is… and cannot be separated from your body. You are a package deal!

To care for your spirit and soul, love and develop compassion for yourself. Gradually move your thoughts and beliefs to those that support and uplift you and others. Allow your emotions to flow through you…. learn to forgive those you resent,  pay attention to the you that is more than physical, honor your life’s purpose!

You came to this earth in physical form to express your spirit, the foundation of your existence!

Ego fear

Set aside your fear – the fear that keeps you small, keeps you invisible, keeps you from your light and power. Tuck it in, kiss it goodnight, read it a bedtime story. Now shut the door to the room where your ego fear resides and go on about your business of living in your full power.

Grandmother Cottonwood’s gift

Your ego fear is the voice of your past, trying to keep you safe, comfortable, perhaps invisible and small. It means well… but you have outgrown it!

When you speak and communicate with your ego fear, do you use confident clear language – or do you sound tentative, indecisive, unsure of yourself? Remember that you are the boss, the parent. Your wise self is meant to be in control.

Let the fear know you hear it, feel it, understand it, as you would an anxious child. Let it know you will still do what you mean to do. You will do what needs to be done, what you have been called to do whether the fear agrees or not.

You live in the here and now! In the past, your fear was warranted, it may have been needed for physical and emotional survival.

Now that you are an adult, find compassion for the fear from your past that tries to keep you small. Acknowledge it, feel it, then step into your power and shine your light!

Stand in your light

Are you ready to come out of the shadows, take a chance, and stand in your light?

It takes guts, stamina, courage, commitment, and willingness to be seen and heard. Are you willing to risk rejection from others who don’t understand?

When you stand in your light, you know that you are deeply rooted to the earth!  You know your full creative power, and your will, aligned with all that is. You feel the power and beauty of your expanded heart.  You speak with  a clear strong voice.  You trust your intuitive knowing.  You a maintain and nurture a strong connection to the divine.

If you own a human body, you have been given these gifts.

You can develop your gifts – expand them, embrace them and emerge into your full light and power – at your pace, in the timing that suits you.

These gifts, when acknowledged and nurtured will guide you to your highest good.  What is in your highest good is in the highest good of all that is! Strengthen yourself and you strengthen the web of all things!

Enjoy the journey!
