The words I share are for me too! While I have been on this journey to the Self for some time now, I am often filled with uncertainty, fear and doubt. Thanks for joining me. I Pray I can bring a smile to your hearts, as I share my Truth. If you have any questions, please ask. I have one request of all of you…..
ONLY LOVE HERE ON THIS SITE ❤ OKAY?
Today, a young lady I follow on Instagram posted an image of a passage in a book she is currently reading and drawing inspiration from. Reading without my glasses was a challenge, yet I am glad I stuck with it, for the page she shared was about our mindsets; lack versus prosperity, consciousness, how the choices we make affect our realities, and basically we have everything we need to create a new and improved life, if we but change our perspective.
I initially had a different plan for my morning, usually starting my day in formal meditation. Today, that meditation took on a new form, as I sat up and responded to one who inspired me to “speak”.
Thank you Tristan for inspiring me today.
One of the first things that came to mind is the Bible verse, ‘Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind”. I then shared the two books I am currently reading….SETH SPEAKS by Jane Roberts (which I started a week ago), and THE TEAM 2, the second of a series of 5 books, by Frances Key as dictated to her by her deceased mother, Crystal Teddy Key (which I began in 2012, and am never without). If I were to recommend reading material it would be the latter, to begin with. THE TEAM Books continue to inspire, and uplift me in a way I cannot adequately finds words to describe. I have many EUREKA moments, often highlighting and tagging pages, and memorizing prayers/passages. Each book begins with the awesome phrase: YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
And so, my message to Tristan is below. In the writing more inspiration came, so the original message is not quite in the same form. May it inspire someone today.
Welcome to The Journey. It is indeed a process, an unraveling of “the program”. It can be a lonely walk at times, often filled with doubt, uncertainty, fear, and maybe even guilt depending upon the decisions you are now making towards honoring yourself. Changing old familiar patterns and breaking the chains takes courage!! YOU GOT THIS! Love the Now You!! Celebrate That One! Encourage That One! Uplift That One! Shine the same love and devotion you give away to so many, on your Self.
Personally, I am coming out of a year of sweeping change in both my personal and business life. Many tears. Fear, Doubt, Self-blame, and Guilt were constant companions. I felt rudderless, without direction. Everything I identified with, collapsed. I had to get out of my own way, and stop trying SO hard. The effort it took to be seen, heard, and understood became too much. I realized the cycle I had been stuck in (and complaining about) for so long was held in place by me! No one else was doing anything that I did not allow. So, as my song says, I LET IT ALL GO, and made a new choice; to break painful patterns, and trust in the Ancestors, and a Higher Power unlike ever before. Faith was my constant when I could not ‘see’ beyond the ‘dark night of the soul’. I had no idea what was in front of me, but I KNEW what I would not go back to doing, being, and allowing.
That voice in my head was loud: Now what? What am I going to do? Where am I going to live? Have I lost my mind? Many mornings I awoke with the words “What have I done?!?” ringing in my head.
And, still I held on (Just like my song HOLD ON says:) to my faith that there has to be something more. During concerts songs I penned buoyed me, as I sang my Truth. ALL IS WELL, LET IT ALL GO, DON’T WANNA GO, MY WORLD, HOLD ON, FINALLY FREE, and TAKE IT TO THE FATHER, were my testimony, and my story.
Today, as the winds of change continue to transform all I have held dear, I walk this life’s walk in a way I have never done before. It feels really good to be the Now me, and to feel empowered by the freedom that comes with knowing I am not defined by my relationships, nor by the thoughts and opinions of others. I have broken the chains I never knew were chains until they were no longer there.
So, I welcome you to a new vision of your Self. Freedom comes at great cost, and it will exact it’s price. May I encourage you to follow your heart. If you listen and heed (and TRUST), it will never lead you wrong. May you be aware of ‘that voice’ that is constantly commenting, judging, blaming, criticizing, and wants you to be afraid that the sky is falling. That voice wants you to doubt yourself and to return to old familiar patterns that no longer serve your health, or happiness.
JOY COMETH IN THE MORNING! I am a living witness.
From my heart to yours,
