I have weeble-wobbles scattered all over my house and office. They’re a fun reminder that when I wobble from my home-base vibration of love, joy, and eagerness, I can easily regain my balance again.
Nothing really ever topples us or turns us upside down for too long because, at our core, we are firmly balanced in the love of Source.
Today we’re celebrating by taking the day off!
Yep, you heard me.
Chill out today—eat a popsicle, take a nap in a hammock, watch the sunset.
Go ahead; you’ve got permission to have lazy bones.
Relaxing, resting, enjoying, taking pleasure in being without doing is an integral part of the Spiritual Journey. We tend to dismiss it because it feels too easy, or boring, or pointless, or counter-productive.
I used to shy away from the word ritual. Instead I liked the word process or routine, but I’ve come to embrace “ritual” once I defined it for myself.
For me, a ritual is an act that has sacred intention weaved through it. My energy and thoughts about the act make it sacred, inject holiness into the act.
For example, a person can drink red wine or one can drink communion.
My connection to the Universe doesn’t always show up in forms that I prefer.
For example, I see the numbers 911 a lot. I mean a whole lot.
For years (no joke—years), this really bugged me. I was pissed that my synchronicities showed up in numbers that either meant an emergency was imminent or a reminder of one of the worst days in American history.
Other people find white feathers and heart-shaped stones as their signs from the Universe,
When I first started meditating, my meditation teacher suggested I set up an altar space in my home. He wanted me to lite a candle, burn some incense and meditate on a round cushion facing my altar. Oh, by the way, my altar needed to face East, host statues of saints or deities, and photos of loved ones.
All these rules freaked me out. I was brand new to meditation, and the idea of sitting in a quiet room by myself was weird enough without adding anything extra to the experience.
Pay attention to how you feel in each moment.
Surrender all resistance or inner-drama as soon as you feel it.
Follow the feeling of fun and excitement.
Trust the Cosmos to take care of you.
Reach for a feeling of relaxed happiness.
Make all of your desires okay.
Lately, I’ve noticed that I feel better when I make stuff. Notice I said stuff and not art because I don’t consider myself an artist even though I love living a creative life.
There is something about making stuff that reminds me of who I am—a creator. I am a creator with energetic roots grounded in the nourishing soil of my Source, the ultimate Creator.
That’s what we are—creators. We are constantly creating all day long.
Inspirational Heroes are different than normal heroes—if there can be such a thing as a “normal” hero.
Inspirational heroes ignite something within your spirit that calls to YOU specifically in some way. They help you to remember something important about yourself.
This reminder can feel kind of vague, almost like trying to remember a dream.
Or it can feel like a road sign pointing you in a particular direction that you didn’t remember you wanted to travel.
Now that we are in the thick of 2020, you might have begun to notice a new spiritual theme of creativity showing up for you.
The worldwide pandemic has hit the proverbial pause button on the old recording of busyness and over-scheduling. The current “pause” has created more space and time in daily life.
Take advantage of this unique experience. You now have the opportunity to reflect inwardly, connect to what you really want for your life,
Intentional movement is an important part of the spiritual path because it helps you to BE in your body. When you move on purpose, you bring your full attention to the container that you occupy. You immerse yourself in the here and now–in the present moment where you eternally live.
Plus, your body is beautiful!
It wants to be in a loving relationship with you. It wants to love you and be loved by you.
