Recover Personal Power~Closing the Gap of Separation*part 2

What is the gap and what does it separate us from? The gap is the chasm we create when we are unable to accept our self, our experience and on some level are less than honest with our feelings and our thoughts. It is the distance between who we think we are and the divine beings we truly are. The gap is heavy laden with unexpressed, unaccepted, unacknowledged emotions and experiences in whole or in part. What has been embraced is denial and what has been lost is our true power. In this way we have literally created the gap that separates us from the Source that sustains us abundantly in all ways. This leaves many believing in lack, disease, pain, guilt and fear because they cannot see through the veil of illusion that separation brings. Source brings light and in the light of Source we are able to discern, choose wisely and feel and express honestly. When expressing in the light of Source, it is easy to be kind even in difficult situations.

Security?

What we think we are and what we have become is in-congruent with who we truly are. We have distanced ourselves from true Source and have replaced it with false senses of security. A false sense of security can be another person, money, a job, a job title, and so on. Any one of these can be gone in the blink of an eye but the Source that sustains, the Source that never fails is the one most people give little attention to when it comes to ordinary everyday life. This is demonstrated in the worry and fear etched in peoples faces. It is demonstrated in the physical, mental and emotional illness so common in many societies. It is heard in numerous conversations expressing worry over a job, a home, money, health, relationships and the list goes on.

Source:

The Source that sustains is the creative Mother/Father God energy that lives within the heart of every human being. It is felt and known in the acknowledgment of your own divinity. It is felt and known in the acknowledgment and embrace of your right to be, to have and to express freely and honestly.

For some the veils of illusion cease to control them for a few hours a week when going to church or meditating but soon after, the veils of illusion once again dispel the clarity. Why?

Believe you are Worthy:

In truth, most people are not allowing themselves to deeply believe in the truth of their own divinity and worthiness. They have yet to embrace the joy, freedom and responsibility of being a creator of their own life. If you think, “if only I had this or I had that” my life would be great, you are not standing in a powerful position to manifest your desires. You are feeding the gap. Far too much energy is attending what you do not have and too little is going to what you desire in a positive way. How much faith and belief do you have in your ability to create the change you desire?

Is your desire for change supported by positive encouraging inner dialogue and action on your part? How many excuses rise up to strengthen the illusions of why it can’t be so, why it can’t be done, why you can’t make it happen? How much attention do you give these excuses? Do you give a long list of reasons that support the excuses? Do you passively wait for something to change with no real participation on your part? Do you go forward with positive change but sabotage it with negative inner dialogue. Get familiar with your way of creating. Now ask yourself: Do I believe in my ability to create positive change?

Soul-lution:

So how do you close this gap of separation?

Self~Discovery Discovering your Emotional Nature

Self discovery is a term many more people are beginning to embrace with a sense of curiosity. Some are more than curious. They are down right interested in understanding what makes them “tick” so to speak. They want to know why they make the choices they do, why they act and react as they do and why people treat them in certain ways. This blog post on Self-Discovery is targeting our emotional nature at present.

Should you take this 3 part journey, which includes an audio meditation, you will discover more of how you currently express yourself, how your thoughts and feelings are in harmony or not and how your way of expressing yourself brings about experiences and responses from those around you.

Please take whatever time you need to travel through all three parts. Make this time of Self~Discovery enjoyable and life affirming. It is a journey that leads to personal power, spiritual awakening and inner peace. The more we come to know our true authentic nature the happier, more peaceful and less stressed out we become. Every one of us is a beautiful talented and powerful being.

Brief Overview:

Part 1 is 15 questions all relating one way or another to your emotional nature at present. Write down the questions then thoughtfully answer each one. Remember this is about you in the current time line. It is not what used to be or what will be. It is what is. Nothing more nothing less. When it applies, write as much detail as you can.

Part 2 is asking you to notice more. Contemplate your answers. If you were not able to answer all the questions the first time around because you do not know what the answer is, simply begin to notice more. Let the questions be a guideline to assist you.

Part 3 is a guided meditation, visualization that takes you on a journey of amplifying the emotional aspects you are happy with and guides you to shift the ones that are not so much to your liking to a higher vibration. At the end of part 3 two audio links are provided for you so you may relax into the meditation. One short 6 min and one long 15 min.  🙂

Clear Your Space ~ Make Room for the New

The new year is upon us. It always amazes me how fast the first week fly’s by. The next thing you know we are already in the spring. Yes, time is going faster but we do not have to go faster to keep up. In fact in many ways it is really just the opposite. When we slow down and take notice of our environment, the needs of our body, mind and soul we gain a peaceful clarity that shows us a way to accomplished much without all the stress of being strongly attached to time. I will talk about how time bends in another post but for now trust that relaxing into this new year will provide the energy and insight for you to experience all you hope for and then some, including play time and time to relax.

Clear Your Space:

Clutter is a huge energy drain. Having excess things stacked on counter tops, in closets, on your desk, on the floor, in a garage, attic or storage unit can weigh much heavier upon your body, mind and soul than you think. This year, love yourself enough to lighten up. Take the time to clear your space. If you have children let them participate in the clearing. Lead the way.

How may things do you and your family have that are no longer being used? How many clothes do you have that are not being worn? How many books do you have that you will never read again? How many unnecessary and maybe even cracked or broken dishes do you have in your cupboard? The list goes on and on. If you have a 2 car garage and no car fits in the garage or you are paying for a storage unit you may have plenty of things that you have actually forgotten about. Anything that has been stored, stacked or boxed for a year is probably something you do not need.

Lighten UP 🙂

The new year is a good time to slim down so to speak. I find it easy to do when I realize two simple things: Read more »
