Creation/destruction

You are the creator of your life. But think of this… You are also the destroyer.

In your home you paint fresh color on a wall, destroying and covering the old color. You may tear down a wall to create a larger room. You may give away or repurpose old clothes you no longer use to make room for new more fashionable and better fitting clothes.

In your life you dismantle those beliefs that no longer resonate or serve your purposes, and you create new supportive beliefs. You withdraw from relationships that hurt and diminish you and create new uplifting connections.

You create and destroy and create again. You make and unmake, you build up and tear down. You construct something fresh as you deconstruct the obstacles to its creation. In this way, you grow and create the life, the home, the environment that you desire.

You create and destroy just as nature does. A tree grows supple, flexible, tall, shady. After many years it becomes huge, brittle and breaks easily in a destructive storm. The sun can now reach the earth allowing new seedling to grow into the light as they feed on the decay from the old wood.

Tiny seedlings and concrete

As humans you must realize this is part of the pattern of your lives and your civilizations, your history. The new and fresh is built on the foundations of that which has served it’s purpose and can no longer sustain itself.

Your challenge is to discern when the time is right to release your tight grip on what has been and reach out in trust to what is coming and help to shape this new reality into a life that is lived fully, with a whole heart.

Knowing this pattern will help you weather the times of destruction in your life, divorce, the death of a loved one, a job loss, a move, a natural disaster. All of these events are difficult, perhaps devastating…

But please know that you will create a new life again from the ashes of the old. You will endure!

Stand in your light

Are you ready to come out of the shadows, take a chance, and stand in your light?

It takes guts, stamina, courage, commitment, and willingness to be seen and heard. Are you willing to risk rejection from others who don’t understand?

When you stand in your light, you know that you are deeply rooted to the earth!  You know your full creative power, and your will, aligned with all that is. You feel the power and beauty of your expanded heart.  You speak with  a clear strong voice.  You trust your intuitive knowing.  You a maintain and nurture a strong connection to the divine.

If you own a human body, you have been given these gifts.

You can develop your gifts – expand them, embrace them and emerge into your full light and power – at your pace, in the timing that suits you.

These gifts, when acknowledged and nurtured will guide you to your highest good.  What is in your highest good is in the highest good of all that is! Strengthen yourself and you strengthen the web of all things!

Enjoy the journey!

Stream of life

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.

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.
