Sojourn Into Transformation

spiritimageI have reached the end of my sojourn that was a month-long process for me.  I have visited family and friends, met many new friends and have been able to give real hugs to some friends who were only virtual friends before this trip.  I have seen snow and beautiful countryside scenery and then entered into one of the most peaceful serene places on earth and immersed myself in its healing energy.  I am not returning home as the same person I was when I left.  So much has changed that it would be impossible to put it into words.  It’s the is-ness experience to the fullest degree possible.  “Is-ness” is living in the Now moment; choosing to surrender completely to what is happening. I consciously made it mine, allowing the unfolding of the event to be whatever it would “be” without the burden of my expectations.  This does not mean that I had no desire concerning the outcome of the experience but my desire took a backseat to the flow of energy that happened with the experience.  With every experience that happened on this journey, I allowed it without attachment to the outcome.  I said “yes” to the is-ness.  I let go of personal attachments easily and without regrets.  It takes great courage to do this, to step out of your comfort zone; yet, I do not feel courageous.  I feel empowered, spiritually expanded and physically renewed.

I feel I can now say yes to whatever is out there for me to experience. I have experienced being open to the flow of the “is-ness” and choosing to do so has transformed my entire life.  This experience was made possible because of one person who believed in me, who wanted only the best possible outcome for my experience.  Her love and support was given without personal agenda but rather with compassion and in response to urgings from her higher self and spirit guides.  Many thanks to my dear friend Jeryl Anne.  I know we have a lot of work to do together and I am super-excited for that!

How do I thank you for all you have done

For loving me unconditionally

For believing in me fully

How do I thank you for sharing life’s adventures with me?

 

Simply by loving me loving you  – unconditionally

 

UNCONQUERABLE

aamichael

Facing personal demons is no fun, especially late at night or first thing when arising in the morning.  It is my belief that life should be fun, should be enjoyed to its full extent and capability; thus, when buttons are pushed and tears flow it is time to reflect on that which has not been released from my human psyche or from a soul level.  This verse from the poem Invictus is a go-to of mine:

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate,

I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley

My decisions lead me to choices, i.e., actions, that not only affect me but those in my life and those in generations that will come after me.  My life is not inconsequential.  It does have meaning and value and just how much value it has depends on my own sense of self-worth.  If I choose to give my power away and give in to feelings of unworthiness, that is on me.  It is my choice alone, no one else’s.  If I stand up for myself, using my authentic voice, that again is my choice alone.  The voice of my father rings in my ears from so many years ago before his passing from this earth plane:  “Never let anyone walk all over you.”  Interpretation:  Know your worth…set your boundaries.

I love you.  Namaste

Your Word

quotes-You-can-make-a-diffeClose your eyes.  Relax into whatever comes to you after the darkness.  Wait in anticipation as if you were waiting for the beginning of a movie at the theater.  Do you see the curtains opening?  Do you hold an expectation of what image might show up or will you be pleasantly surprised?  Wait for it.  With your eyes closed and body relaxed, now you are ready.  What is that word you hear?  Follow it.  Go into the sound of it, the way it is said, the possible meanings.  When you shut out all other stimuli and let yourself receive, you enter a place where you can be you.  Who are you?  Let the word answer the question.  Follow the sound, see the word written in front of you.  Look at how it is written.  Go to it and touch it, smell it, get to know it.  This word that comes to you is your creation.  Get to know it intimately.  Did the darkness disappear as the word came into focus?  Did your word light up that dark space you entered when you closed your eyes?  This is how powerful you are, dear ones.  You are creators.  You have within you the means to bring light where there is none.  You can bring joy into sad hearts.  You can make a difference if you only close your eyes and find your way out of the darkness.

Forgiveness

quotes-Dear-ones--open-yourYou are feeling the yearning to move forward, to stretch beyond that which is restraining you, holding you in place.  Dear ones, open your eyes and you will see that those tethers are of your own creation.  As you stand there frozen in fear of what lies ahead and remembering what transpired in your past, you are the only one who can release the bonds.  Nothing you have done up until this point in your life can control you unless you give it the power to do so.  But Master, you say, it is unforgivable. It was shameful and hurtful towards others.  Forgiveness, dear ones, is unconditional; however, does not happen instantaneously.  When you are dealing with feelings of shame, regret, anger, these are very strong emotions.  Your mind knows you would be in a better place if you would release them.  Your heart feels burdened underneath their weight.  Your ego wants to hold onto them perhaps because they are all you feel you have left of a situation in which you were hurt very deeply.  Well-meaning advice of “just let it go” make you feel worse and sometimes rebellious to hold on tighter to the feelings.  Forgiveness, like grief, is a process that is individual to the person and the situation.  There are stages you will go through as you forgive but keep in mind that when you decide to start the process you are unlocking the chains that were holding you.  With each emotion you let go of, another cord is cut layer by layer until you have peeled away that which stings, that which controls you, that which was slowly draining you of life.  Gently release those chains using your own free will to do so and in your own time.  When you finally reach that place of total forgiveness towards another or towards yourself, your heart will respond in a miraculous way and begin to fill with love once again.

Purpose

quotes-Tap-into-that-connecYou have been contemplating lately about “purpose” as your Earth undergoes tremendous changes.  Some are saying that what is happening in parts of the world can be compared to the ravages of war.  All the disasters are causing stress on your planet, rearranging parts of her, destroying what was and leaving behind barrenness in some places.  You weep for the Mother.  You cry out for those no longer there and collectively you ask why.  Be assured, dear ones, this is not a punishment dealt out in response to mankind’s actions.  When you encounter stressful situations in your individual life, you sometimes think of it as punishment, do you not?  You use words like “karma” to try to make sense of why such a thing would happen to you.  You are looking at it as if it is an outside force doing something against you for some reason and your human mind goes to work to explain it.  Many teachers have tried to help you understand Oneness; yet, you continue to see yourselves as individual, as disconnected from the whole.  In this solitude you imagine you have to continually defend yourself against the outside forces.  You compare, criticize and judge others around you.  You lose sight of your purpose for being here having this human experience.  Just as you see Mother Earth being ravaged and question why it is happening to her, you see vulnerability in yourself and when something happens you immediately question why it is happening to you.  Look at any situation you are experiencing in your human lifetime with your spiritual eyes instead of your human ego eyesight.  When you take everything personally as though it is an attack on you, you lose sight of who you are and you stay in defense mode.  You are a spiritual being.  This human body you are inhabiting is only for a short duration.  Open up to what your purpose is for being here at this particular time.  Get your mind off the perceived attacks and focus on how you can help be part of the solution for the collective whole.  Tap into that connection of Oneness.  It is there in that place that you will find the peace you are seeking and your purpose will be clear.

Surrender

quotes-Grab-onto-those-clouThat tug of war that is going on inside you is creating chaos and confusion.  Take a step away from the situation at hand and you will soon see the fruitlessness of the effort you are expending to try to maintain control.  You want so badly to be right, to be the victor, that you have lost sight of what is important and who you are hurting in the process of winning.  Sit for a moment and imagine that you are on top of the highest mountain looking down into the valley.  There is no one there but you and you have everything you need with you to survive.  Watch as the clouds slowly drift by you.  Breathe in the tranquility.  Now ask yourself, would it matter if my mountain were not the highest mountain in the world?  Can I be happy and fulfilled here on this beautiful mountain as I am surrounded by peace?  When you surrender to where you are at this particular moment without comparing that experience with any other, without contemplating if the grass is greener somewhere else or the view more spectacular, then you have achieved true freedom.  How you perceive things in your world is how they will appear to you.  If you always see your mountain as lower than someone else’s, then it will be and the feeling of lack is what will surround you instead of the beautiful tranquility that is waiting there to be discovered.  Grab onto those clouds and surrender to each now moment as it arrives.  The peace that will surround you will feel like a warm comfortable blanket; and you will know that in letting go you have won the inner battle.

Oneness

Oneness whole lifeWhen you are in your alone time, those quiet moments where you shut out the world and quieten your mind, and begin to slowly open your heart, you become closest to who you really are.  As the flame slowly ignites, you feel its warmth and your breath falls into a rhythm, a beat that matches the frequency of the planet.  You feel the energy start to expand with the warmth, urging it to lift you higher to that realm where there is only the matched vibration to yours, the realm of pure love.  It is in that place of knowing the Oneness that you relax into the flow of who you are among the swirling mass of spirit.  You are drawn into the vortex of it, spinning and floating, surrendering to the moment.  This experience, this merging of energies with no agenda, no boundaries, no limits is the most freeing moment you have experienced since coming into physical form.  Here on this dimension, you feel no separation.  Your soul has merged with every other soul and together you form into Oneness.  You remember what it was like there.  You have been seeking this your whole life.  Allow the energy to swirl around, through and from you.  Remember as you do so and know that it is the true you.  You are so loved.
