When we are truly inspired something very special touches us and all limitations and barriers simply disappear. It is a feeling that is beyond holy or sacred, beyond language. It is a sensational feeling that humbles you with Amazing Grace while catapulting you into a something that is beyond space-time. Through this intimate and sensual experience of Grace you feel so expanded and grateful and a new life from within you is born.

Andrew Martin wrote it beautifully, “We are in a state of flux. Sitting with what is and slowly peeling away all the old, possibly feeling some discomfort and knowing we are in the midst of being in between worlds.”

As I continue letting go of my old story and making my way creating a new life, I AM finally getting back my joie de vive! As the spiritual teacher Katya Turner wrote, “In each new moment we have a choice as to how we choose to look at what is in front of us, hence choosing how we feel about the now, and that shapes our future and our past encompassed in that vibration we choose in the moment.” We then can be free of the conditions, patterns and habits that have been imposed upon us for eons of time.

Just because we don’t see the gifts doesn’t mean that they aren’t there. Moreover, I know now that we can’t negotiate with this crazy and wonderful thing called fate. Everything is here to help us ascend. We do not have to like it or know why anything is the way it is-all we have to do is align ourselves with whatever is happening and love ourselves with whatever is coming up next for us. At the core of everything, now more than ever, as we surrender and let go of the old, whether we were ready or not, it has happened and we have all been infused with a new psychic awareness and expansion that can’t even be described. It’s magical as well as experiential. On a much deeper level everything seems to be transformed when we welcome it rather than resist it!

As I AM allowing life to lead me on its terms I AM realizing its gift of feeling free of the from illusions that were holding me hostage. Even though I certainly didn’t enjoy some of the circumstances I had to experience I learned it is not about getting your way it is about becoming the Way. And then transformation happens! Matt Kahn, who has inspired these musings as well as continuing to assist me and so many others through these enormous upheavals of change wrote, “We must accept we only have enemies when we don’t see the gifts life is giving us.” He goes on to say, “How difficult, debilitating, fearful, frustrating and overwhelming and daunting it can be while going through it all.” Again, this path is not for the faint of heart.

When we are able to survive all these things we can grow. We evolve. By aligning ourselves with what is we create a different world. When shift happens from within everything changes on the outside. By making allies with everything, we are saying ‘Yes’ to the universe. By saying ‘Yes’ we are surrendering to what the universe wants. Again we don’t have to be the sufferer even if there is suffering evolved. Every moment you can go deeper than ever before. As everything is an agent of change, know that nothing of greatness is achieved without going past the boundaries of society. We must all now stand in our own authority and mid-wife what is uniquely individual for each of us. All life benefits when we can love whatever is happening. Especially when it is coming from the core of who we are. Moreover, nothing is more important for this transformation to occur so that we can live our life fully from that place of our own true north. When I opened up to what is and surrendered to my fate everything changed! It is our initiation as we become ecstatic beings in heart-centered consciousness. When we move beyond our challenges, our limitations, our doubts and our fears and do the things that we really know we should do we create Miracles.

Thich Nhat Hanh wrote, “That the next great Avatar of the new world will be collective consciousness.” We Are the pure, raw, undiluted power of Infinite Intelligence awakening once again. We each are in the awakening stream. No One is there, as there is not. We Are the “bringers of a new dawn” as well as the ones that will animate it, though first we must integrate, assimilate and adapt to the components of the dawn itself. And then…Behold the new dawn as it is brought to Life through each of us.

I believe it is essential to stay in an amplified expanded version of ecstasy and not descend back to our fear based thoughts as well as not be penetrated by all the external circumstances, chaos and noise. We are constantly being inundated with outside influences. I have heard that by the time an average man or women is 20 years old they have heard over one million advertisements.

The irony is that it is so easy to be taken under with the current tide being so intense. However, if we choose to stay under the illusion of fear and panic we will miss the opportunities to bring in the miracles that continue to surround us. Much like if we were asking for more prosperity and were walking around with holes in our pockets, there would be no container to hold the fortune we were so diligently asking for. The Light, the beauty, the gifts, the love are all around. It is up to us and what we are willing to let go of to create the space and choose a different scenario.

I Invite you to reclaim and embrace the highest vibration of just how magnificent you are. To feel how brightly you shine. To be the angelic and wonderful beings you know yourself to be. In doing so I promise you will experience more abundance, health, wealth, joy, connection, inspiration, bliss, passion and fulfillment than ever before. Know as you keep affirming that you are Divine not only will it give you the courage to follow your own heart, it will illuminate your path and create a trail of beauty for those whose hearts you will touch as well as affecting the well being of all. I AM dedicated to all of you who are Rising Strong. No matter what the challenge, hardships, diagnosis, conflict or loss you have experienced, take pause and know that in the process of regaining your power, you have inspired and helped me to understand that no matter what your tragedy is or was, it has lead you home to triumph and freedom. Thank you for polishing the mirror for all of us.
