Do your intentions flow directly from your heart and spirit, or are they products of your thinking logical brain that knows what’s best, what you should, what you should not?
The part of your brain trained up by your schools and parents and society knows the “rules”. It knows what is physically possible and impossible, (you learned it in a book) what you can and cannot, how to get ahead, which careers will bring you the most money, and who is misbehaving according to your code of conduct.
To be effective potent and powerful, your intentions must flow from your heart and spirit, the part of you where dreams are created. The part of you that existed before your cultural training set in and upset the balance of your creativity and grace and flow and restricted you self concept.
When you tap into this reservoir of creativity and power, you can imagine yourself moving beyond old limitations. Then you can set your intentions for your life based on expansion and possibilities you dream of.
Leave behind the old restrictive rules and boxes and limitations you’ve placed on your dreams!
When you can feel it, dream it, imagine it, define it, and intend it, you can become it.
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.

You are not alone, dear ones. Many have navigated through the boredom, the fear, the feeling of being stuck, the resistance, the half lived days, the addictions… You can do it too. Ask for help if you need it…Others who’ve traveled the same journey can help guide you.
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!
A seed, once sprouted can’t ever return to curl up once again in its protective shell. Something magical has been set in motion that must play out!
Tiny seedlings and concrete
Once born, a baby cannot reenter the womb. It’s life is now, unfolding as nature intended – growing, developing, maturing, with no looking back.
Once you have crossed the threshold of healing, once you have experienced the soul satisfaction of living at full power, once you have regained your own voice and witnessed your own light from the inside out, you, my dear, will never look back at your old life with longing.
You may have fond memories of the past, but you will know without a doubt that your path unfolds before you, as nature intends.
You are here to grow and develop into the best version of yourself. You are here to fulfill the promise set forth on that magical day of your birth!
There is no going back. You have reached this point in your life by allowing the flow of existence to carry you to this time and place; this situation; this very moment.
Sunlight ripples on moving water
You know you cannot return to the past, to the smaller self you once were. This is like facing upstream and trying to go against the pull of the current on a flooded river.
You have grown, expanded, and become more than you were. You are larger in spirit, more expanded in heart, wiser. The fears, doubts, and worries of the past are washed away and dissolve like fog before the morning sun.
You are here now, in this body in this place and time with the people who surround you. The stream of life has brought you here.
At any point you may halt your progress, pull out of the stream, get lost in a backwater, beached on a sandbar, foundered on rocks. Will you cling to the shore and stay stuck, or will you allow the current once more to carry you downstream? The choice is yours.
You who wish to progress and move forward won’t be stranded long. You will once again steer for the main channel, the faster moving current of life that takes you effortlessly to your highest good.
