Get to know your spirit

Dear ones, no matter what happened to you in the past, what occurs in the present or future, your spirit is indestructible.

Your body may decline, your life may crumble around you, your possessions may be lost, your accounts drained of value, but at your core, the very heart of you, the deepest part of you, you are so more than all this. You are powerful, resilient, everlasting. You are spirit, living in a body!

Can you get in touch with your spirit, the foundation of your life? Your spirit predates your conception, your body, your life in this place and time. It is the part of you that came to this Earth with a purpose, a mission.

Discovering who you are on a deep soul level is not a secret process. It is not difficult; it takes commitment, curiosity and perseverance.

(Logical thought won’t help you, for the spirit transcends linear thought. Using logic to prove or disprove the existence of God? You humans are too funny!)

Open your heart and mind to your deepest experience of oneness. Remember those times you felt transcendence and joy, for this is how spirit makes itself known to you. Suspend judgment and allow yourself to be without an agenda, without expectations. Ask for your spirit to become known to you.

Set a firm intention to get to know your spirit. Be open to the hints, dreams, visions, signs, intuitions, and wisdom that come your way. Pay attention, let your creative mind bring all these threads together and weave a beautiful tapestry that shows you who you really are at the deepest level.

Getting to know your spirit is a life-long process and, I hope, one that will bring you great joy and wisdom.

Always remember that you are spirit and body. You will endure and thrive!

Finding balance

Do you live in the clouds thinking the physical body is not worthy of your attention, that it is not spiritual enough? Or do you spend most of your time in your lower body, rejecting all messages of the  spirit and whisperings of the heart as woo woo and irrelevant to your needs? 

My dears, in both cases, you are out of balance.

You came to this earth with a human body!  You are meant to live fully in your body on earth while connecting with the divine!  It is your birthright!

When you live in your head and constantly float in the spiritual clouds – to find balance, gently bring awareness to your lower body.

A tree without roots cannot stand!

Go slowly, learn to feel what you feel.  Be gentle and kind to yourself as you do this.  Get to know your root, sacral and solar plexus chakras.  Get to know the sensations in your feet and legs,  your gut and stomach area, the center of your chest.

Learn to decode your body’s signals as you tune in to your real feelings and emotions.  Let yourself feel your body communicate its wisdom in this way.  Remember to breathe!

Find a healer or therapist to help if you need it!

When you live mostly in the lower body – to find more balance in your life bring your awareness to your heart, throat, brow and crown chakras.

A tree cannot grow without a crown of leaves to collect life giving sunlight!

Let yourself be open to intuitions, feelings, little whispers and messages from your heart and spiritual guidance that represent true wisdom.  Can you allow yourself to connect to something larger than yourself, to become a receiver for spirit while living fully in your body?

See what happens!  Try to find some quiet each day, and gently tune in, open your heart and mind to new possibilities in life as you create true balance.

We are meant to live fully in our bodies while receiving guidance and wisdom from spirit!

Get to know your spirit

Have you forgotten something? Have you forgotten your spirit? Have you lived your life without consulting, recognizing, or getting to know the larger part of you, the part of you that knows and feels your connection to all that is?

Do not underestimate the power, reach and wisdom of your spirit, my friends. When you underestimate your spirit, you underestimate and undermine your amazing self!

Yes it is invisible, yet it influences every facet of your life. Get to know the larger you, the you that is so much more than your body, your worries, your problems, your job, your paycheck…

Your reach is wider, your influence greater, your personal power stronger than you have ever dreamed. Because you are so much more than your body…

To know and experience this, get to know your spirit. Not necessarily in a churchy religious way, for they may bind you with rules and regulations, shoulds and should nots- But in a gentle exploration, a trust, a moving into the unknown once step at a time. Ask the universe to support your new journey and to reveal the unseen.

Many begin this journey with meditation, with books they are drawn to, with curiosity, with questions. Ask the questions that occur to you, follow your heart, and trust that you will get to know your indestructible spirit.

Upwelling of spirit

There comes a time when you must acknowledge that you need the help of a higher power; that you need the wisdom and compassion of all that is to heal yourself, to solve your problems in surprising and miraculous ways with soul satisfying results.

Dear ones, you cannot do it all by yourselves! Give up the illusion of control and allow the wisdom, grace, and peace of spirit to work in your lives.

You will have access to all wisdom, all possibilities, all combinations of factors, all inspirations and ideas. It is having the entire universe at your call.

Let go of your grasp on that which is holding you back! Let go of your narrow picture of how things will happen.

Allow yourselves to be filled with fresh inspiration and energy. Allow the amazing upwelling of spirit in your precious lives!

Come to the timber with me. Feel the peace and sacred quiet on this snowy winter day. The peace of growing things at rest.

This feels familiar for beneath the surface, beneath all the chatter and worry of the brain, beneath all the attention grabbing anxieties, you too know the peace and sacred silence at your center. It is a gift that all living beings are given.

Come to the timber and reconnect to the divine within you. You do not need stained glass, you do not need incense, you do not need a liturgy, you do not need words read out by another to connect deeply and know your oneness with all that is.

You may love your religious forms and rituals, but you do not require them to connect to the living spirit, the great oneness at the heart of all things.

Visit our forest cathedral, open to the endless sky, with its foundation of our intertwined roots, supporting columns of our straight and true tree trunks, arches of our branches, soaring overhead.

Here you may find sacred space and divine peace.
