While you walk on this planet, breathe her air, drink her water, eat the sustaining foods that come from her fertile grounds, you belong here – all of you – body mind and spirit.
You are meant to be here at this time in this body. How do I know this? Because you are here right now in a body. Period.
Your spirit has chosen to live fully as a human being on this planet. You are part of a larger pattern you might not see now. There is a purpose to your life that is integral to the web of life, that is a vital filament in the pattern of all things. You are needed here!
When you are aging, when life hurts, when you are grieving, your body and mind may get tired and you may find yourself living in your head, possibly forgetting at times that you have a body.
You are meant to live fully embodied and to be whole. Your entire being is meant to fully experience what it is to be human; When it hurts and when it feels wonderful; When you are sick and when you are bursting with health; When you are unhappy and when you are vibrant with joy; When your soul is frustrated and when your soul is inspired and fully satisfied.
When you feel doubtful, when you are not sure you belong, you must choose life again with your body, heart mind and spirit so you can live life at its fullest and richest.
Find someone to talk to – a healer, counselor, dear friend, doctor, member of the clergy for help if this becomes difficult for you.
Recommit to living a fully embodied life, rich in the full spectrum of human experience.
Your spirit is connected to all that is even if you don’t remember this. You knew this as an infant, as a child and you can know this again.
Your spirit is the great receiver of inspiration, the great channeler of divine energies. What you see smell touch taste, hear is information needed to live successfully in your body on your chosen planet.
Your body is the how of survival on Earth. Your spirit is the why of your life, gives your life meaning.
Balance between your body and spirit ensures that you live a full life, receiving divine inspiration and guidance through the spirit, living fully in the body, grounded and anchored energetically to the earth, keeping your body healthy and vibrant.
You are a being with access to your full power when you live in harmony with all of life.
You receive inspiration and guidance through the spirit. You use these inspirations as fuel to create and act and build your life through the vehicle of your body.
Life calls you with a powerful voice! Do you block out the sound of her voice with static in your mind, addictions, petty time wasting amusements?
Life pulls you forward like a magnet toward your highest good if you will allow it! Do you resist the pull and hold on to the past to what is with an iron grip? Do you get stuck in the quagmire of your fears? Do you live life with your nose stuck in a shiny electronic device? Dear ones, that sounds like half a life to me.
Life desires your full participation, your clarity and focus. Do you cloud your clarity with excess busyness, with no time to rest, constant activity, anxiety and churning hamster-wheel thoughts?
You have been given the most amazing gift of life! The life force within you requires that you move forward; that you continue to expand and become like a rosebud opening. If the rosebud failed to open , it would soon wither and die.
Life asks that you grow and change and evolve and allow the effortless unfolding process- the blossoming of the man or woman you were born to be.

If you have been holding yourself back, when you are ready, you can gently let go of the bank and allow the river of life to carry you forward into your next big adventure!
Dear ones, are you experiencing the full spectrum of life that is available to you – or do you find yourselves repeating the same tired, ineffective thoughts, words, and actions?
