A New Day

A new day lightens the sky in the east. This is life giving you another opportunity to start fresh. Life allows you the time to reevaluate and renew your life, to grow into the person your spirit calls you to become.

Nature’s rhythms show that you can begin again after setbacks and illness, after disappointments and sorrows. Spring follows winter without fail. The moon cycles through her phases each month. Storms roar through the valley pushing much old growth to the ground, leaving food and light for new life to reach to the sun.

A tree cut off at the ground will sent up suckers reaching for the light. Tender new grass appears after a prairie fire. Green shoots of crocus push through the melting snow in March. The world greens and leafs out finally after a hard winter softens into a joyful spring.

You too after the fires, storms or winters of life have passed may send forth green shoots, leaves, and blossoms and renew yourself. This may look and feel like new energy flowing through your veins, new ideas and creative projects, new vibrancy, a renewed sense of humor and playfulness…passion for life.

The sun will rise again and you will have another day to move toward becoming who you are at the level of your soul, to choose a new thought that supports you in place of the old stale thoughts, to choose a different pattern of being, to tune yourself to a more pleasant feeling, to take the first small step to realizing your dreams.

Of course, patience is your friend as these changes take time and attention and perseverance. Trust and give yourself the grace to accept yourself as you are while at the same time moving toward the new way of being that you desire.

Open your heart to this most amazing gift of a new day.

Are you at a crossroads?

Do you find yourself at a time of choice in your life? Will you continue as you are, or will you explore a new path?

Does the familiar path no longer feed your soul? Do you feel energized and inspired by the possibilities of the new?

You are beings of free will. When you choose, choose with your whole self. Line up your heart, mind and spirit with your new direction. Don’t look back.

Leave the past and regret behind so you can fully inhabit and experience the new landscape you’ve chosen. Give yourself time to attune yourself to your new reality and  immerse yourself in it.

Will you take the first step in the life affirming, soul satisfying, self loving direction your heart has chosen, leaving all doubt, fear and timidity behind? Will you choose a new path?

Be your healthiest

My dears, I have observed many of you poison yourselves with unhealthy food and drink, with resentment and rage, with ugly news and information that brings on fear and loathing, anxiety and dread, with entertainment that saps your spirit, drains your resources, that degrades and demeans your natural nobility of spirit.

Grandmother Cottonwood, sunny day

Please be aware of the substances and thoughts, ideas, images, energies you allow into your body and consciousness. Choose only those that promote the health and vitality of mind body and spirit.

You can do this… Start in small ways to detoxify your life. As you gain confidence and feel better, it will be easier to release the larger more entrenched habits… You are worth the effort, my dears!

Do you not wish to be at your very best, your healthiest? Health is more than your physical body functioning like a machine. It is your thoughts, attitudes, feelings, emotions, your mood, your outlook, your energetic atmosphere.

Health is the visible and invisible aspects of you functioning in harmony and balance.

You have been given free will to choose the substances, the foods, the people, the entertainment, the ideas that you allow into your life. Do they sustain you? Do they allow you to be the best you can be?

You are blessed, dear ones. Blessed with life on this sweet green earth. Make it the best it can be!

GCW speaks of your parents:

My dearest ones: Our tree parents simply flowered and went to seed with no effort or planning on their part. They left our existence or non-existence to chance.

You have parents that carry beliefs and emotions that imprint you over the years of your growing . The blueprint for your body, your physical being, comes much like my seed; programmed from time immemorial. The feelings thoughts and emotions of your parents their parents and all ancestors have been bequeathed to you as well! But you can take them or leave them. Did you know that?

Unlike your bodies, eye and hair color you have no duty to carry on family traditions that hurt – that make you or others small – that keep you from your light and power! You get to choose! You have been given free will! If you are not happy, gently explore the roots of those feelings. Even though you may love your parents and those who came before, you are under no obligation to believe think and act as they do.

You invent your inner lives, you choose again and again how to think, feel, act and believe with each moment! You are the ruler, the king or queen of your inner self!  You are in command!

Choose life. Choose those beliefs ideas, thoughts & actions that support the life you want to create! You are blessed beyond measure!
