160824-possibleIn today’s world we are bombarded with messages of fear. Fear causes us to shut down only seeing and acting within a small predictable circle of awareness. Fear restricts our ability to live life. In order to reduce fear we have to first slow down and relax, then examine the source, examine the roots.

Our true nature never loses sight of our eternal potential, even when we shrink our awareness as a result of fear. The future of a person’s life is like looking down a corridor of approaching potentials. In the center of the corridor are events and locations of opportunities not yet realized. Harmoniously, on the outer fringes of this corridor are events that we have not committed our free will or intentions toward and yet are still available to us as future potentials. If we move our awareness toward those fringe events, then they can become firm possibilities.

When we get caught up in the day-to-day distractions and fear in life we allow them to carry us away from our true nature. This deepens the illusion of us being separate individuals having to forge out a life with no sense of direction.  Also, we simply are not pursuing our potential. Wen distracted we generally do not factor our intensions into our decision-making or into our goal setting.

Already embedded within us are all of the gifts and talents we need to complete the work that we agreed on before coming into this life. Already planted is all of the raw material necessary for us to come into a relationship with and develop our character from our true nature. Our task in life is to discover the talents placed within us, to develop them, and to begin to use them as opportunities as they present themselves.

No one else can do the work we agreed to do, and the universe is aligning what we need in a fluid ever-changing world of potential. We are tasked to use our awareness to recognize the synchronicity as it presents itself. While in this flow, it is good to be grateful for what the universe provides and establish new loving intentions that foster empowering goals that are in alignment with our divine essence.

Have honesty within yourself and act in a way that aligns within your truth. Which is also known as self-truth. We are naturally good, we are already awake, and all of that is within each of us, we only need to look past our mental grasping and distraction. We are never off our path. We can however choose to sit down and not move forward. So developing our awareness is critical to realize the potential that we have to keep us moving.

Living in fear we live in the roots of our awareness and we will never climb to the tips of the branches, to connection, to the greater world that waits. Truth lies within, waiting to bubble up like fresh spring water beneath our roots, only asking us to accept the absolute truth of our true nature. Now is a good time for new growth and an opportunity to open our corridor of potential.

Rise above those old ways of “being” and instead live your life like your true nature intends. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way the Divine exists within you.

Purpose seems to present itself at all times in all places, we only need to be aware and stay present. Even when the world around us seems to be going a little wacky if we keep stillness and calm in our hearts a path will present itself.

delayedI was delayed for my first flight from Syracuse to St. Louis and it meant I would not make my connecting flight. Apparently there was fire in the tower in Chicago the day before and it shut the airport down, so there were no seats available for a new flight out of Chicago today even thought it was a day later. A couple chose to sit beside me while I was waiting. Spirit gave me a nudge, so I struck up a neutral conversation to pass the time. We were all delayed for a couple of hours. They asked why I was traveling to St. Louis and I quietly told them to help facilitate a retreat for people that have died and came back, “near-death experiencers.” They replied with curiosity that they were interested in the subject, and followed up with “what is a retreat for NDErs like.” I spoke of the challenges experiencers go through and how it is helpful to be with other experiencers to find ways of overcoming the challenges. They had many questions about how to live with a NDE and my feelings about the afterlife. Then purpose revealed itself. The man notified me he was going through lung cancer, and was thinking a lot about his mortality. We then had a quiet and lengthy conversation about how I overcame stage IV lung & bone cancer and about listening to our guidance. I could see hope returning to the man’s eyes as the conversation went on. We took up all of the delay time speaking then they called our flight and we went our ways wishing each other safe and present journeys.

Above the cloudsI love to fly once we gained altitude I closed my eyes and expanded my awareness to feel the thrust of the engines, and be aware of the out stretched wings cutting through the rushing air that fold under the wing that press it upward. I lost myself to the sense of speeding over the planet, leaving wisps of turbulence in my wake that eventually subside into settled air. My awareness sometimes went further to the outstretched land or water beneath and examined with great detail our earth speeding past.

I arrive at Chicago in a good mood and prepared myself for a long night in the airport. Then Spirit nudged me again to go to customer service even though I was already booked on a flight leaving the next morning. When it was my turn I asked what was available and I got the same answer as the representative bowed his shaking head, he then looked again at the screen in front of him and said “wait a minute a standby just opened up on a flight this evening.” chicagoI was so relieved to have listened and stayed in the flow of Being with all the chaos that was swirling around.

Another couple chose to sit next to me just as they announced our flight would be delayed an additional hour. They groaned turned to me and asked the same question, “So why are you traveling to St. Louis?” Again like magic we started a conversation about NDEs and this time they had someone in their family that had an experience. We spoke of the common factors in the experiences like the unconditional love and they gain new understanding of what their family member went through and why it had changed her life. Then the announcement system notified us that our flight would be boarding sooner than anticipated.

It goes to show we can always be of service even in unexpected circumstances. I boarded my flight thinking when I listen and I am present with authentic being, the universe aligns work and rewards.

Becoming "Authentic Beings"As we traveled across the country these past two months on our book tour,

I gave many talks. One message that Spirit kept giving over and over was, that to flow through the increasing shifts that are coming quicker and quicker, spiritual people will benefit by developing into Authentic Beings.

This leads people to ask “What does Spirit mean by Authentic Beings?” This came up so many times that Cindy and I felt it would make a wonderful topic to reinvigorate our newsletters and blogs that had fallen silent during our journey.

To become Authentic we have to develop a new way of Being.

If we focus on the prime element of Love and being heart centered then we begin to think and act with loving intention. Love is the key to being “Authentic,” yet many people across the country have reminded me, “It is hard to stay focused on loving intentions in todays world.”

I agree. Yet we must develop the discipline despite the challenge and it all starts simply with a deeply sincere and solemn intention to work toward living with loving intentions. Let’s start developing our own personal practices, as opposed to just reading the theories. Just like recommended in the noble eightfold path, it’s time we start taking steps and developing right action now. Our Being instinctually knows what is loving; we only need to instill it into our way of living one step and one day at a time. That is a marvelous way to begin and once we step down that path we are making a difference.

We are all a part of this universe, so we are all a part of the shifts we see today. It is a serious responsibility we all share to make our future and the future of our children a more verdant and peaceful place. As we become more heart centered in our daily tasks we contribute to those goals. Along with a heart centered lifestyle runs parallel the necessity of mindfulness or living with a focus on this moment. The more we focus on this moment, trying to do our absolute best, we are continuously working for a better tomorrow.

This is an ancient way of living that is being brought forward and melded into todays lifestyles to create a togetherness and coherence of old and new. Living in connection to our heart is living a spiritual life. Our true being resonates to this new way of being, supporting us with guidance, enhancing our light connection and inspiration. Gratitude and giving back to our circles and communities is an important part of this lifestyle. It allows us to share our inspiration, our spark of light with those around us, igniting their light and love. In this way we build stronger communities based on mutual respect and cooperation.

Always know we are human and sometimes we fall down, but we can use our failures to strengthen our spiritual transformation. If we learn from our missteps, we add considerably more knowing to our consciousness and to the greater all. We pick ourselves up and continue on our paths toward developing into Authentic Beings.

Remember~ Authentic means “of undisputed origin,” let us live true to our hearts in all ways, lifting our loving intentions for the greater good for all, that way we are being true to ourselves and authentic.
