Grow to the light

Tree grow tall to the sun, our source of energy and we root deeply to the earth, our home base, our ground of existence.

We may grow in a group together, but we do not lean to the right to the left to help another smaller tree to more light.

We do not weaken ourselves to help others grow. We are strong together, each taking our place in the light. When a mature tree dies the young saplings crowding underneath will shoot up quickly into the sunlight, finally finding their own place in the canopy.

Be like a tree. Do not weaken yourself or sacrifice your energy and power or hold yourself back because another adult is weaker, has less energy, is farther behind than you.

Of course you will help and protect and love your children. Human children need more care, attention and togetherness than cottonwood seedlings.

If you want to, show them where their power lies. Reflect their strengths to them, let them access the source of power within themselves

Weakening yourself to help other grown people never works because the others do not know what to do with your energy, your power, your knowledge. They will squander your gifts while draining you. For nothing!

They will either learn to access their own power and stand on their own feet or they will not. If they do not, please bless them on their life’s path and let go of your misplaced responsibility

Your job is to grow to the light and spread your branches!

Your sweet spot

You are meant to be a column of pure clear light. This is when life flows delightfully, without effort.

When your light is shaded and dimmed by fear, when you are pulled off center or out of true by foreign substances, worry for another, your reaction to events, you lose effectiveness, you spin your wheels, you may become careworn and haggard.

Put yourself back in the sweet spot of flow, back to your spotlight where your energy moves without impediment. Align yourself with the web of all things where endless possibilities exist.

Simply drop the idea that you can’t do this. That, my dear is a lie! You are strong, capable and powerful. Those qualities are within you.

Do not search for your power and strength outside of yourself, for you will continue searching from lifetime to lifetime in vain. Draw them from the core of your being, as a singer brings forth a clear pure tone from within.

Release your need to control. Know your inner power and strength. Ask for help.

Allow the amazing intelligence of all that is to make connections and create soul satisfying solutions for you.  Allow yourself to live in your sweet spot!
