How do you use technology?

Dear ones, do you use your technology mindfully in support of your highest good, your health and wholeness?

Or does your glowing little screen rule your life and keep you corralled and dependent? Does it limit your freedom?

Some of the human created reality blasted into your brain each day is meant to get you hooked and addicted to the content others have curated and chosen for you to digest and believe. I ask you for your health and well being to become an expert at discernment, to choose wisely what you will consume.

Think about this. When feelings of self worth come to you from the outside in, they are not genuine, not the real thing. True self worth and autonomy grow organically from the center of your being in partnership with source and radiate outward to enrich the web of life and all beings.

The phony, the fake, that which is chosen to root into your mind and addict you is not in your highest good. The words images are chosen just for you to make you feel insecure, to make you want things, to limit your creativity, to make you click and spend, to make you forget your true self and to make you believe this fake reality this phony feeling of connection is better than the real thing.

In your true and deep and abiding heart, in some corner of your mind your intuition knows who you really are and what is right for you. Do not sell or hand over your most precious gift for anything!

Use your technology wisely and well. You are the boss of your life! Make technology your servant.

Have you been tamed?

You humans have built an amazing civilization. But I wonder, Dear Ones, does it lift you up in ways that feed your spirit and serve your soul?

You all have within you the energetic memories of a time when humans were in tune with the spirits of the land, connected to nature, free to choose their path and direction, when they lived a simpler life and danced around a fire deep into the night.

Let me be frank. You have been domesticated and tamed. Of course at first your need for domestication was about survival on this planet with unpredictable weather, predatory animals, unstable food sources, sudden accidents…

And now you have these basics, you have evolved systems of farming and food storage, medical care, learned to keep yourselves safe, the dangerous animals at bay…

But now what? Have things gone too far?

Have you sold your souls and your autonomy for the convenience of a sleek little phone, 2 cars in the garage, a paid off mortgage the best schools for your kids?

I’m telling you, you can reclaim your wild spirit, your deep soul that is your birthright, while retaining what is good and useful in your civilizations for your survival on the planet and a thriving life.

What is your definition of a thriving life?

If you are restless, if you feel you are missing that deep part of you, that something precious has gone, learn to tap into your true and untamed and fierce heart. Do not give yourself away or betray this part of you for love or money or the illusion of safety.

This inner fire is your true inheritance from those ancestors of the deep past who survived, from those who painted on torch-lit cave walls, who learned to speak to spirits and survive in harmony with our Earth’s rhythms and cycles, who found life a sacred trust, a gift of the ancestors.

Reclaim this deep abiding center of yourselves by living consciously. You get to choose what to keep, what to let go of in your life.

You alone can discern what makes your heart sing, what causes dullness and heaviness in your spirit, what lifts you up, what drags you down.

Live as though every moment is sacred, every living thing is holy, every person precious, with your wild untamed heart and spirit at the center of your beautiful life

What unique gifts do you bring?

What is your life’s work? You soul’s purpose? What is your unique gift to life on this planet?

Begin this new year thinking, discerning, and discovering the reason you came here in a body. Recommit yourself to this passionate purpose.

You must look below the surface of your life for the answer. Making a lot of money is a surface effect of your purpose. Prestige and fame are surface effects…

Dig deeper to your core spirit knowing, the reason that gives your days meaning, that makes your heart sing, that inspires you above all else. Ask your spirit helpers, guides, angels, and ancestors to assist if you don’t know what your purpose is.

Let the answer come to you over time. What fascinates you? What fills you with light and passion? What activities cause you to lose track of time and enter the timeless place of flow and creativity… the deep well that is always filled, no matter how much you withdraw…

When you are tapped into this well of creativity and purpose, you will never run out of ideas, plans, or inspirations. You will be filled by life and often feel wonderful and blissful while you are aligned with your purpose.

Your gifts are needed here and now!

Your uplifting feelings and creations will flow from you as gifts to bless the web of life!


Take Care of Yourself!

Dear ones, please take time during the busy season to rest and take care of yourself.

 In this season, there is so much human busyness – rushing, doing, trying to beat the clock, meet the deadline, make the holiday celebration perfect, trying to please one and all, beat the crowds, put on a magnificent feast.

You run yourself ragged and you wear yourself down! You override your body’s natural rhythms and needs, pushing yourself over the limit of endurance. Another word for this is “stress”.

Can you pull back, breathe, regroup, rethink, and slow down? 

 Find your center.  Bring your awareness to your heart and breath. Tune into your innate wisdom. What is most important to you this year as you celebrate your holiday?  What can you let go of?

For your health and sanity, let go of the elaborate expectations and preparations that you do not enjoy! Let go of extra events and “must-dos” you have to squeeze into your busy schedule. If others expect things you do not want to deliver, let them do the work, take the time, make the effort!

What activities will satisfy your soul and connect you with love to family and friends without overwhelm?

 Do those things! They can be so simple and easy!  Play a board game, sing songs, read a book together. Go for a walk, have a heart to heart conversation.

 Remember the real heart of the season, gathering with those you love and enjoying each other, greeting the sun, creating light, love and warmth together.

Let yourself be the peace you wish for!

Let your spirit out to play!

Can you trust in the never ending stream of guidance and loving support that comes from spirit?   It is like a well or spring that will never run dry.  It is constantly refreshed and renewed as your life circumstances change. 

Perhaps you have not personally felt or experienced this flow of guidance in your life.  It is there, beneath the surface of your thoughts.  It takes a bit of tuning in to begin and live by your guidance.

Let your spirit out to play!

It is the knowing that seems to be there inside that always is on target. It comes from within you in many disguises. Do not seek this power outside of yourself, in gurus, objects of value, money, looks, fame… the impulse, impetus and inspiration from spirit comes through you! And – it feels good!

Little by little learn to discern the voice of spirit from the voice of your logical ego brain that tries to keep you separate from others, that attempts to herd you into a corral, or box of “proper” or conventional and limited ways of being and responding and thinking.  The voice of Spirit will never promote chronic fear in your life.

Maybe you seem drawn to a particular book or website that has exactly the information you need, information you can trust, that touches your heart and rings true.  Trust it!  Perhaps you see a beautiful bird, or animal that lifts your spirit and gives you hope.  Trust it! Perhaps you feel within you a certain knowing of the course of action that you are to take. Trust it!

Even if you can’t explain exactly why, trust it!  If you unsure, trust, and test the waters, trust, test the waters… see if your guidance carries you through.  Let go of judgment  and worry.  The more you trust and act on your true guidance that comes from spirit, the more will be given to you!

When you send your ego to the baby sitter and let spirit come out to play, life can expand into joy!

Should?

2013-01-01 00.00.00-493

My dear, the word should is not your friend!

Should is the voice of mom, dad, church, teacher, doctor, expert, all rolled into one. It is a word that holds you back and ties you down. It is a word generated by the mind, the fearful self critical mind, not the heart or the voice of your soul. It is not the real truth of you.

Of course, sometimes what you “should” do and what your heart wants to do are in alignment. Can you discern when this is true? Do not lie to yourself!

Do you fear that you will not belong, that you will be cast out if you follow your heart and not your shoulds? Perhaps it is time for a new group, new friends, a new tribe that celebrate the deep inner beauty and kaleidoscope of gorgeous colors and patterns that is you!

I repeat myself yet again. Follow your heart for that is where your true riches are found.
