I woke up early this morning from a dream hot, sweaty, and tangled in my bedsheets.
I laid there in the dark getting my bearings and realized I’d been wrestling with the sheets in my sleep, and it dawned on me that too often, I wrestle with the bedsheets in my waking life too.
I wrestle with problems and decisions, worrisome thoughts and pesky annoyances, to-do-lists and responsibilities, and most of all…drum roll please—what do I want to do next.
Do you know how important you are to Spirit? You’re so valuable to Spirit that without you, Spirit would be incomplete. And, without the loving gaze of Spirit upon you at all times, you would cease to exist. Because of the intensity of this dynamic, your relationship with Spirit is the most important relationship in your life. It’s that simple.
Spirit is in this moment is loving you, and anytime you are not feeling your best,
Is all the spiritual talk about living in your truth, following your integrity, being authentic, and transparent confusing you? Does it feel like another thing that you have to get right when in reality, you’re just trying to get through the day without losing your shit?
I get it. This well-meaning advice can make your head spin. Even worse, it can make you give up on your spiritual journey because it feels too hard to figure out the “right way.”
It’s time to give yourself a break because Spirit is not demanding some lofty standard from you or judging how you’re doing.
Be grateful before something happens. Knowing that it will happen because you’ve asked.
Faith is believing before you see it. Appreciating the outcome before it happens because you know the Universe answered your request.

It’s so easy to fall into the trap of wanting to make the perfect decision, but often this is a stalling tactic not to decide at all for fear of getting it wrong.
The split energy of indecisiveness feels uncomfortable because your energy is meant to flow.
The next time you must make a decision ask yourself, “What do I want?” And then permit that desire to be enough reason to go in that direction.
I know, I’ve fallen into the old habit of worry more than I’d like over the last year. Maybe you have too? It’s okay. It happens to all of us (especially in the current energy of the pandemic.)
So, when life feels overwhelming or out of control, it’s best to get back to basics to feel safe in the here and now. It’s an immense help to quiet our outer world so that we can tune to the natural calm of our inner world.
You. Me. Every bird. Tree in the forest. Concrete overpass. Shiny star in the night sky. It’s all the same thing—God Stuff. There is only one Source of the magnificent Isness that everything is made of.
God forming into individualness and then reforming back into oneness, and reforming again into individualness is the cycle that goes on and on.
Imagine this process as God breathing in and out. Breathing into oneness and out again to individuals.
Your version of spirituality doesn’t have to look like my version. You have the freedom to connect, commune, and enjoy your Soul in any way you choose.
This may look like meditation, yoga, baying at the moon, painting a mural, dancing in the street, banging on the drums, shooting hoops, cooking, walking in nature, and much more. The options are endless.
You’ll know how you like to flow, express, and be in harmony with your Soul by the way it feels.
Humans love to remember the past and dream about the future, but the only time that truly exists is the Here and Now. This beautiful present moment is where all possibilities live at once.
When you tap into the fullness of present moment awareness, you can access anything you want to know, be, do, or have. Everything is here waiting for you to recognize that it already exists.

What if there isn’t one right choice of how to live your life? What if there is not a giant door with a sign on it that reads The Right Choice— this way? What if finding your purpose, career, or mate is more about making little decisions every day that feel good and naturally shift you into a place of Soul-alignment?
