Align with Love.

     There is always a choice, to choose to see love over fear in every situation. To see an opportunity or an impenetrable obstacle. To align with abundance or lack. To step outside of your comfort zone, open your heart, and share your love unconditionally with others, or to stay within the limits by which you’ve lived, controlled by fear.

     Choose to shine a light on all areas of your life in which you are living out of alignment with love. For me, the place where I am still limited by my past and fears are in my relationships with others. There is a part of me that does not feel worthy of authentic relationships with others, often closing myself off emotionally instead of allowing people to get to know me. My defense mechanism is being distant and aloof, and just not caring enough to include myself in the lives of people that I find exciting. I would ignore the fuck out of people instead of telling them how I really felt in order to keep myself alone and prevent myself from getting to know others. I have limited myself in many ways in this regard, likely missing out on some pretty awesome friendships and allowing some of them to wither away. 

     That is the first step to changing your mind, to literally call yourself out on your shit. So that is where I am now. That is how I’ve lived and treated others for years upon years. It’s gotten me nowhere. It’s not fun to look around and realize that I’ve let some awesome friendships lay to waste by isolating myself, and dimming my own light. I hereby assert that I am ready for a change. I deserve to feel happy, to be surrounded by loving goddesses who are taking action to make the world a better place. I deserve to be fully confident in who I am now, exactly where I am, and to be strong enough to share who I am with everybody, no matter what. And they can take it or leave it. I want to change myself and help others to take back their power, to take responsibility for their happiness. I align with love.

     The next step to changing your life, once you’ve changed your mind, is to activate some discrete steps of action that you will take in order to solidify the change in your life. For me, I will take action by choosing to connect authentically with others and making an effort to get to know people. I will release my self-conscious fearful thought patterns because they no longer serve me. There is a choice to smile more. Laugh more. Release the wall and open my heart to love, to share my love with the world. To radiate love and light as brightly as the sun. To fully align with love. The choice is mine.

Visions of Now.

     Be limitless. Travel as much as possible. Do more yoga. Worry less. Live in the flow of grace, peace, and miracles. Connect with gypsy yogini goddesses. Share light and love. Be more compassionate. Embrace inner power. Be strong, flexible, and balanced. Go for it, now, with intensity, passion, and purpose. Focus on what matters. Explore. Be an active participant in the story of life. Say what you mean. Choose authentic, dynamic growth. Forgive. Dare to take a risk. Choose to be extraordinary.

The World is a Mirror.

     Last night I had the pleasure of attending a workshop called “Introduction to Witchcraft: Green Spirituality  and Witchy Ethics.” I wandered around Chapel Street for a bit, then ducked into a opening off a side street where the workshop was being held, in Fey’s apartment. I was guided up three flights of stairs until I found a sign on a door, “Welcome Sisters! Join us upstairs…” The evening was lovely, we sat in a circle, with sweet candles burning and the lights dimmed as one of the ladies gave the talk. Throughout the night I could see a pentagram lit up by candle light being reflected in the apartment window opposite  me. A light in the television flickered, then moments later thunder and rain rumbled outside.

     It doesn’t matter whether you call it magic, miracles, or the law of attraction. It’s all the same, no matter what word is used. The Universe is abundant and each of us is the center of our own universe. Everything radiates and emanates from the center. Therefore, I am beginning to awaken to the truth that I have the power to choose my thoughts, words, and actions in each moment, in any situation. I can make the conscious choice to be here, now, to be aware of my inner dialogue, and to realize when I am being negative. This is how self-empowerment manifests, by choosing to send only love and positivity into the Universe, and it will send it back, in unfathomable ways.

     I choose to believe that I am a powerful co-creator, that the Universe will provide everything I need in Divine time. I don’t need to worry about how or when, for that would only serve to interfere in the flow of grace and love. Another thing I learned during the talk was that “Spells are most effective on oneself.” The word spell can be used, and it can be interchanged with affirmations, prayers, wishes, or manifestations. Again, the specific word doesn’t matter, only the energy and intention behind it. I took this to mean that whatever I want to get out of life, it can be obtained by looking at my own thoughts, actions, and intentions. I can choose to see any situation as an opportunity or an obstacle. It is all in my perception, and perceptions can be consciously shifted toward truth. The world is a mirror, so if I live with positivity, love, and compassion, that will undoubtedly be reflected in my outer world in the earthly plane and in my inner world.

     Throughout the workshop, I realized that spiritual teachings are interconnected in all ways. Witchcraft, yoga, astrology, Buddhism, The Secret, or whatever philosophy or path you choose to take, it will lead to love and truth.

     Also, as a side note, the pentagram is a representation of the transit of Venus. On June 5-6 2012, Venus will transit the face of the sun.

Manifesting dreams in Divine time.

     It is not easy to get clear about what I want in life. I know I deserve to be happy, now, but I want to feel it with my heart, to realize happiness, fully, actually. I am weeding a garden, the garden of my mind, and each plant I pluck from the Earth is an outdated, fearful thought pattern that is holding me back. They are plentiful, but it is no use analyzing them or wondering how they got there. It is enough to shine light on the fear-based thoughts, accept that they no longer serve my highest good, and thereby release them. The stories I tell myself are just blocks, holding me back from stepping into my inner power and fully realizing my creative, loving potential. I deserve to feel comfortable with who I am, all the time, to respect, love, and honor myself. Judging myself and others has gotten me nowhere. It’s only kept me closed off, preventing me from speaking my truth. Clarity is key. It is time to find my voice, to connect with others, and share my love. To help others and myself be happy, now. Trusting that I will be guided to where I need to be, in Divine time. Believe. Believe. Believe.

     And I will leave you with this, a quote from “Tribes” by Seth Godin.
“Change isn’t made by asking permission. Change is made by asking forgiveness, later.”

 

Inspired by Intuition.

     Trying to get out of my logical, rational mind and into my heart space is one of the hardest things I have ever done. I am redoing years of programming, clearing and releasing outdated thought patterns that no longer serve my highest purpose. My heart is telling me, Trust. Believe, believe believe. Listen and take guided action.

     Intuition is connected to the heart. It does not reason with the intellect, it is guided by spirit and love. I have always been amazed by my mother’s uncanny ability to connect with her intuition, to know things about me that I never said, that she could never have known rationally. She always knew when I was lying, or if the people I was surrounding myself with were not positive influences. Like her, I want to be more connected to my intuition instead of being bound by the mind, which changes constantly. Listening to the heart means getting still and silent. Receiving truth and clarity. Shining a light on fear and delusions in order to choose love. It is going inward rather than outward, and tuning into the subtle energies that say, yes this is the way, or no, that doesn’t feel in alignment with my truth. Above all, intuition is acting from the heart by staying connected to the present moment and its infinite, limitless possibilities.

     My intuition is guiding me to the perfect situations for me, the exact experiences I need to evolve, and the people I need to meet to guide and inspire me. I trust that I am connected to my heart space, even if my mind tries to rationalize everything or bring fearful thoughts to the surface. I accept them, observe them, and move on, aligning with the present and the lucidity of truth. Today I was divinely guided to take an action toward manifesting my dream of traveling to Bali. I booked my flight ticket and I am not turning back. I want to travel to Bali and be guided by the heart the entire time. In every moment, I choose to align with my heart and authentic truth.
