inner symphony

Don’t allow life’s adversity to spiral into greater and greater circles of suffering. Instead infuse Love into every situation and ask your higher guidance for harmony. Listen to the guidance and feel the flow that is surrounding us. It is like hearing music that rhythmically flows around and through us. Move into the flow and watch as adversity is washed away with loving harmony.

The more we connect with our resonant harmony the more we are in touch with our True Being. This, after all, is our natural state of being, not some supernatural accomplishment. Deep within us we feel the connection to oneness, we only have to allow that love to be present. Acknowledge the love; bring it into all aspects of life like work, play, study, and reflection. Soon we see harmony and abundance are growing in both inner and outer worlds.

Door after DoorSometimes we find ourselves feeling unfulfilled. During those times look again to your connection with your True Being. Within your Being is the link to the greater consciousness of oneness and a way to identify that missing something. It is very much like opening one door after another, each time remembering a little more of our purpose and solutions. Always be patient and allow the resonance of your Being to guide, direct and heal.

Once we begin to live in balance with our True Being we each create our own realities and manifest in our lives what is needed to be whole and complete. The inner life is the true reality…yet, our inner guidance provides for making life in this world more precious and productive. Don’t retreat from activity in the world; embrace the ongoing effort of making this moment and our future the best it can be filled with love and harmony. Be the center of your “Being,” radiating your good works outward into the world.

Developing ConsciousnessIs our love reflected in every aspect and every waking moment? For most of us I would have to say no. We are human after all, and our material lives make this difficult with all the distractions that cross our paths knocking us off center. Although many of us will pay to hear a talk on spiritual living, most struggle to apply the basic principles in our day-to-day lives. Are we just talking about love or are we actually working toward demonstrating love and spirituality. The best way to apply this is to get our heads out of the clouds and and start step by step bringing clear conscious light down to earth into a daily practice.

While working on our spiritual maturity we are also developing clear consciousness. When I speak of clear consciousness, I’m talking about how we learn to live with clarity, and a centered sense of grace. There are many spiritual teachers from the past and in the present that are teaching us to live more simplistically by being in the present, this is a wonderful way to start. As we follow these teachings, bringing them into our practice, we are returning to truth, harmony, and a spiritual integrity of knowing who we are. What a wonderful place to begin, knowing who we are, knowing our True Being.

If we look deeply at who we are, then we need to make sure not to overlook the secrets and bad habits that make up our shadow side. Our shadow parts are those parts of us that we are ashamed or embarrassed of. We should acknowledge our shadows so we can transcend them and become better people. As we move forward practicing our new disciplines of being present more than likely we will achieve a pivotal moment, a divine realization. It is in these pivotal moments that our world opens up with new possibilities. This could be the spiritual key that unlocks our lives so we may live a centered life with spirituality in our hearts.Develop a coherence between our heart and head

This practice leads us to develop a coherence between our hearts and our heads. Bringing those two spiritual receivers into unity infuses every cell in our body with knowing the perfection of our presence and the absolute rightness of this moment. Now that is a strong foundation of presence to build upon. Once we achieve this, we can allow ourselves to be cast into infinite new levels of knowing.

For example, think of an invisible point in space, where our conscious minds and hearts, in union, can burst like a flash of light. In a millisecond, we experience expansion of this physical world and beyond, a new birth or shifting consciousness. Once we experience a knowing such as this, we begin living in that expansion.

When living with clear consciousness we can start truly living our sacred saga, dedicated in following our divine talents and guidance. Always remember, clear consciousness requires balance and positive movement forward. It all start within each of us, constantly requiring reevaluation of ones awareness and attunement. Within us is our connection to the universe.

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.

Taking the first step

We have completed the end of an era and we are beginning on a new road of light and awakening. We all have a part to play in bringing a greater spiritual consciousness to our world. The intentions of awakening were laid down long before our births in the illuminating light of unity and the completion will be known by our children’s children. Breathe in this new dawn and let it fill you with Love, Hope and Courage as we emerge from the darkness.

 Let us begin our walk from the darkness with an understanding of our rhythms and long-term spiritual development. We have within us the most effective monitor of our rhythms. Our heartbeats reflect our life’s rhythms and cycles. Our first step is to develop an orderly discipline and practice in our day to listen to our heartbeat and rhythm, hearing the message of this moment. In that way we bring our being into perfect and proper order.

Balancing Rocks As we learn how to live in harmony with the rising and falling energies of our lives, we flow with the ups, downs, ins and outs to progress toward our goal of spiritual maturity. Now, carefully study your inner relationship with the outer world, see how your inner states are projected onto the screen of life. As we develop universal unity and love in our being, our values shift to be more in alignment with the greater cosmic order.

Our being is connected to all the beings of the world. As we change ourselves, we change the world we know. In this way we introduce our seeds of truth into the earth, with our new found inner and outer relationship, and transform her. We are here to embody the highest good and bring it into the greater whole.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, but not in a sacrificial way. We contribute more in the manner of the greater good enhancing all individuals along the way, so not one part gains more than the others. Always there is balance and movement forward within each of us and our world.

As we advance in our spiritual maturity we contribute beyond just this physical world, we contribute to the universal consciousness. Awakening comes as a realization that there is a higher dimension of reality with which we are connected to and this higher dimension is a universal consciousness of unity & oneness.

The new road is bright and shining with cooperation. It may be a long road, yet as we help each other we will advance to a new way of being. Now is the time to take the first step.

With all the shopping, cooking, gift-wrapping, and traveling over, it’s time to start to focus on this new year of 2012. I would like to offer a concentrated focus to prepare us for the energetic shifts that are coming our way.

Let your Heart Shine in this New Year

Let your Heart Shine in this New Year

The more we connect to the Divine Source of Creation the more we begin to change for the better. Slowly a belief in unity replaces our belief in separation, and with that comes a sense of harmony. At first we are out of practice in connecting and creating our link. In order to polish our rusty link and have it communicating smoothly, we need to release and let go so we may flow with our higher nature. This means bringing our ego into balance.

Before our transformation we are focused on wants and needs like wealth, fitting in, pleasure, accomplishments and respect. Our hearts know deep down that this is not our primary focus. We then begin to teach the ego that compassion and universal love are the true focus our heart needs to strengthen the link to our higher nature. We learn through interconnection with everything in the universe that what we do to another we do to ourselves. What we fail to do for another we fail to do for ourselves. These are the lessons that build a relationship with our ego based on compassion and love.

We live in a world where anything is possible, yet to work with the energy of all potentials, we must be totally honest with ourselves and everything within our circle. We must come to accept our faults and strengths. This is not something everyone wants to do but it liberates our heart and strengthens our mind. I favor using stillness, gratitude and mindful attention within my circle to accomplish this quest of personal acceptance. Honesty and acceptance is an ongoing practice, which is essential to having clear communication with our higher nature. With time our practice becomes a way of living and many of what we perceived as faults evolve into strengths.

hold the lightWith this new way of living we connect more with our higher nature and thus with the Divine Source. If we look again at the interconnection with everything in the universe, we begin to see how our living with our own truth and acceptance reduces and burns away our karma. In doing so we are reducing karma for others, and we are building honesty, love and compassion for the world.

I can’t think of a better gift of giving.
Om Namaste,

Couple ComunicatingI have heard some of my good friends voicing concerns about modern techno-communication. They say it lacks the heart and soul of person to person conversations. We are missing the familiar human nuances of looking into each others eyes and the nod of the head when texting, tweeting and posting.

Could you feel me smiling as I wrote those words? Today there is more interaction of like minded individuals than anytime in human history. We can express an idea or thought and have it posted on multiple social sites and blogs within seconds. Then within minutes that thought can be picked up repeated and restated by like minded folks around the earth. In a very short time it can reach thousands. Think of the change a single thought or stream of consciousness can bring-about if thousands are focused on the same intention at the same time.

Nevertheless, one has to ask, “Is our soul attached?”  A thought or word shared without soul conviction has no value. That can be said whether it is spoken in our presence or on the other side of the earth. We Skype my Sister-in-law and family weekly. They are in Australia and we are in the States, yet we feel due to these conversations we are connected in each others lives.

When we attach loving intention to our communication, no matter what means it is transmitted, our souls receive it. We humans lack the ability to see the greater picture – the universal all. Sometimes we may catch a glimpse, even then our brains and hearts act as filters for our higher consciousness. In this time of “Shift” we are responsible to fine tune our hearts and minds in-order-to clearly receive each others intentions and the dialogue with our higher consciousness.

Global InterconnectionEvery day I find more like minded people around the world that are communicating spiritual unity and love. People are connecting their spiritual messages into a greater global consciousness through many of these networks. This is not some bohemian rhapsody. It is a fluid and loving tide that is about to turn, hopefully assisting in raising and quickening our collective consciousness.

I try to live simply allowing life to unfold. It gives me a sense of serenity looking forward and being open to what ever life brings. I try to inject this sense into the stream of global consciousness using positive intentions and actions. It can be an intimate relationship with the universe of people that are connecting online.

Cups of Steaming friendshipAlthough, I have to agree with my friends somewhat, I still enjoy a good conversation over a cup of coffee or tea now and then.

In my Near-Death Experience (NDE) my soul family of light beings and I re-experienced my life in what is commonly called the life review. The Love and the Life Review were the most life altering aspects of my NDE. I now know how important each life experience is.

Woman in light prayingAs a survivor of life, I cherish the everyday exchanges, especially interactions with other people. They give me the opportunity to practice loving intentions. I’m not always at my best though, so the results are varied. Although I feel I am getting better.

When facing a difficult situation and meeting it with loving intention, I have experienced the perceived difficulty melting away and the situation then flows smoother and with less resistance. On the other hand, I have experienced challenges with simple interactions when I proceed without love in my heart, I find obstacles can pop up from nowhere.

The fastest thing in the universe isn’t light. It is Love Consciousness. Love Consciousness can move from place to place instantly and in multiple locations at the same time. Love is the action and motivator that interconnects us, so all of our consciousness can be one.

Even in these times of confusion and unconsciousness, grace awaits when we allow the Love to flow through us freely without any attachments. Grasping and attachments slow our developing love consciousness, restricting the flow of loving intention.

Imagine a world where everyone practices living with love in their heart and developing an interconnected consciousness. We would still have our differences like many flavors of ice cream although we would use loving tolerance and acceptance toward those differences.

Scale

We will finally tip the scale toward a more loving, tolerant and understanding society.

I know that sounds Utopian, but as we move ever closer toward a shift in consciousness eventually we will reach the critical mass needed for change. The numbers of people practicing loving intention will finally tip the scale toward a more loving, tolerant and understanding society.

I am encouraged that we are moving in this direction. As we communicate with more and more people globally there is a yearning and searching by many toward a life centered on loving intention and expanding consciousness.
