Spirit Speaks -- Do Your Thing

imageIt is really difficult to be your own person if people ridicule you by saying things like "you're weird", or, "you are a freak".  People do not like to see you happy or plugged in to doing your own thing. Why? Because it frightens them that you may be doing something better or greater than what they are doing. 

To maintain our peace, we must learn to say the hard things to those who try to criticize and "you should" us.  The hard things are sayings like "your way is not my way.  Leave me alone."

Today, decide what you would like to do to be doing "your thing".

Many blessings.

Spirit Speaks - Wisdom Comes

image

When I am asked, "How can I get back into balance with my life?", my answer is, "Go to Nature".

Yes, it really is that simple. Yet, most people seem to want a long, difficult method of rebalancing.  I think it is because, over time, we have learned to believe that everything is complicated and that we need to go through a lot of steps to get to the end goal.  After all, that is what work is.

Being in balance is a natural state, so, it seems to me, that the best place to balance is in Nature.  It doesn't matter what the season is; it only matters that you go out into nature willingly and with an open mind.

My best drive home from work is one where I have time to look at the trees along the river and, if I am lucky, I see the Eagle guarding the river bank.  The sight of the river, trees, Eagle, and what ever else shows up brings me firmly into the present moment so that all that has been floating in my mind clears away.  I feel refreshed.

Many blessings.

Spirit Speaks - Have a Vision

image

The interesting thing about a vision is that so many people tell you that it has to be long term and very big.  Really though, all you need to do is have small, easy to accomplish visions that help you to move through your day, and, eventually, you find that you have moved quite a bit in your life.

Let me give you an example. Suppose you plan a birthday party or retirement party.  You need to see what the end result should look like, in your mind.  Then, you take the pieces of that vision, and break them down into the smaller steps like – catering – and then smaller steps about how to get the best caterer.  You can go back to your vision and see what the food looked like.  Then, you make sure that the food order supports that vision.  You can do the same thing with decorations – what do they look like?  Then find them or find a close match to the vision.

Today, try the visioning process to see where it takes you.

Many blessings.

Spirit Speaks - Just Let Your Light Shine

image

When someone asks you what your purpose is, tell them that it is to hold the light, and shine in the darkness.  While they may think that you are goofy or weird, you are really telling them the truth.  All of us just need to be beacons of light in the denseness. 

Many blessings.
