Note to Self

I love you. Despite whatever you may be feeling right now, you are not incomplete. You are, within yourself, fully alive. Every decision you have made has been from love and from the highest consciousness available to you at the time. Life will not always be easy. You will experience loss, despair, sorrow, grief, guilt, anger, depletion, sadness and shame. You will experience joy, courage, resiliency, ease, fortitude, abundance, peace, love, and swagger. Sometimes, most times, you will have any combination of these feelings at the same time. This is the journey. Be on your own team. Be a bold enough spirit not to simply transcend all of it but to embrace all of it. Yes, it’s true, you are not your emotions but there is no spiritual bypass surgery. You are here, an infinite soul, experiencing life as a human being. This is your dharma. No one person gives you validity or your light. You are self luminous. You don’t need another to feel whole. But when you realize your innate wholeness, you may share your light & life with another who is equally & inherently so. The way this looks may not unfold to your personal preference. But in the end, this is about living a full life, your life. Risk pain for the chance to deeply and authentically love & be loved. Risk being judged. Risk being weird. Have the strength to be vulnerable. Be down when you’re down but when it’s time, pick yourself up by the bootstraps and reclaim your mojo. You got this.


Opening Presence

I am taking this time in my life to manifest presence. The power of presence transcends intellectual knowledge. It is a felt sense of strength that radiates love to all of existence. It is the overflowing of compassion, the radiating of light. It is beyond attachments and aversions to the coming and going of circumstance. It is rooted in source. It embodies integrity and uplifts all who surround. It is potential manifest and a calm self assurance. It does not strive or force. Rather it moves with the flow of life. It abides behind the change yet plays joyfully within it. It heals all it touches and sees each moment with new eyes. It holds the curiosity of a child and a subtle eagerness to receive the great mystery with open arms. It owns it bigness without trepidation or apology. It inspires others to do the same. It need not be sought after because it is nothing other than who I already am- Who each of us already are.

Receiving Gratitude

When we examine the notion of gratitude from an energetic perspective, for some reason it seems the energy exchange isn’t complete unless it’s received with the presence of an open heart. There can be that bit of awkward internal uncomfortableness that arises within us when someone is bold enough to express genuine gratitude towards us. I think it’s important to not deny these expressions of gratitude through subtle re-directs like “oh it was nothing”. Because if someone is taking the time to express gratitude then it truly was something. Holding heart space together may feel a bit confronting at first but actually receiving someone’s sincere gesture is so very powerful. So keep giving & giving the gratitude but when it boomerangs back to you, remember to receive it too, and that is the truest form of gratitude you can reciprocate.
