In 1955, a massive Buddha was in the process of being relocated to a new home in Bangkok, Thailand. It wasn’t an easy task because the 200 year old statue was ten feet tall and weighed over five tons. Each time the workers tried to remove it from its pedestal all the bits of colored glass, plaster and ropes broke off until finally the statue came crashing down. Rushing to assess the damage, everyone was astonished at what they saw. Even though the statue was damaged, it was on its surface only. Underneath the jagged edges and through the cracks what they saw was gold gleaming beneath.

Upon further study it would show that the statue was made of gold originally and it had been covered with plaster and glass in the 18th century to hide its true value to prevent it from being stolen by the invading Burmese. No one knew its true value/nature until the accident revealed it. Basically this is what many of us are discovering about ourselves.

Underneath all those layers of not feeling good enough, cracked and broken lies our true self. Those unresolved parts: the unmet sadness, discarded grief, hopelessness and loveliness at times that is spinning all around us. We actually believe it because this is all we see. This idea that there is a different world inside us is so foreign. At any moment we can choose to define ourselves as broken or we can choose to shift our consciousness to see beyond the surface and awaken to the gold underneath– this is what our work is about. We can call ourselves the new archaeologists – as we dig deeper and have our true selves revealed to us!

Once we begin to ask The Divine to reveal itself to us there is a feeling of great Love and Respect for being on the cutting edge and a part of something so extraordinary and special as you discover who you truly are. Even though at times it is a stretch to be on this journey, when we can align with something greater than what seems to be outside of ourselves we find the treasures that have been there all along – giving us greater meaning in every direction.

This was the intent of The Divine from the beginning of time to heal our wounded Self. From unraveling all those false layers, what is revealed is pure unconditional love. Consequently, it’s no longer just about me; it’s about everything and everyone! It is evolution itself!

Today, as you open to that Divine Love within You, notice how it is flowing through You – descending beyond You and raising your vibration to the higher mind. And, as the higher mind continues to illuminate everything with its direct knowing from Spirit you can awaken to that Divine connection within you, attracting others who are in that vortex knowing that life is ever evolving through them as well. This is your foundation, your gift from the Beloved where you are eternally safe, infinitely loved, and forever inspired.

Fast, forward to NOW! It is One year and almost 1 month to the day that The New Archaeologists Muse-letter went out. And, that auspicious day is when ”The Spiritual Archaeologist’ was born!

Since then I have become and still AM the poster-adult for the work. Nothing and everything has changed. From my vantage point the cliff note version is this: Power is the main ingredient of the human experience. That’s a truth. Don’t keep creating exactly what you have been doing, rather trust your intuitive guidance in each moment. As much as possible stay fearless. It’s so easy to doubt because we have never been taught how to just Know! However, when You begin to change the energy of what you believe to be true for yourself the universe conspires to support you in every way! The bottom line is that you all have the strength, power and skills that are valuable to your Soul’s plan and to live the life you were born to live.

Your self-assurance attracts all that you need to align with the Divine. Wisdom, strength, love, creativity, abundance, health and joy follow when you build your esteem. Make a commitment and focus on what you want. And, you must have Faith the size of a mustard seed for your own creation.

By stepping into our higher selves and knowing what we want, we are not only healing ourselves – we are healing humanity. Last but not least, remember that you are the Universe in person, the master of two worlds eclipsing the illusion of separateness and transcending the ordinary world of space and time. You are the essence of inner strength, passionate for the possible, giving birth to your creative genius. This is the world that I AM. And that all I AM seeing is in Me! Would NOW be a great time to choose You? It’s time to remember to be more loving to yourself. The time has come for you to realize you are beautiful, loving, vibrant and courageous. It’s time for you to return to love in every minute so you can strengthen the experience of who you are and be the embodiment of heaven and earth.

For now I am happy to say that our Love and Spirit are here to stay! With that we can overcome everything. Each and every One of Us represents the change that will help our planet thrive into this new future where we can manifest a sustainable, peace-filled and loving universe. Take some precious time this week and reflect on your journey – where you are, where you’ve been, what Spirit is gently whispering in your ears and what is waking up in your heart. Then sing it out loud! There is strength in numbers and You are SO WORTHY! You are infinite potential. In Each moment we are born again and again — what we do today matters most. Have a gorgeous week. I love you madly.
