You are meant to be here

You have been given the ultimate, the highest gift – life itself. Your spirit has chosen this path: Life in your body in this very place at this particular time.

You are meant to be here – with all that means.

Living in a body is not easy. It means you will experience grief, loss, and despair, sometimes happiness and flow and joy. You will know the pleasure of creativity and at other times you may feel stuck and alone.

You will experience illness and health, love and connection, you will know what it is to feel peaceful and calm, to rest at times, and be restless at others. You may know what it is to be injured in body or mind and to recover and feel whole again.

You are meant to know and experience the full spectrum of emotion to know all the joy and sorrows of life. You are meant to be fully present, knowing and trusting the process of living.

Life on this planet is not for the faint of heart!

Life means asking for help when you are unable to stand on your own. Life means lending your strength when others need your support. Life means heartfelt connections with other living beings that share this earth with you.

Life means paying attention to your body, mind and spirit, living by your heart and intuition, taking care of yourself and your needs, learning to love and accept yourself.

As an inhabitant of this planet, life means that you will know great loss that will take your breath away. And you will know many blessings that fill you with joy.

Source hears you, loves you, answers your heartfelt prayers throughout your life.

Breathe deeply and gather courage and strength for your unfolding journey.

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.
