Not the Surrender You Think

Our blog last Sunday was about surrendering to the Divine, Source, Spirit first in order to inform us before we act. Some might refer to it as acting from “thy will not my will.”

We had one comment from a childhood friend who completely disagreed “No disrespect intended, but I could not possibly disagree more fundamentally. Especially now…”

We are not for one moment suggesting surrendering to injustice and ignorance. On the contrary the “surrender” we refer to enables the best kind of fuel to promote real evolution and revolution.

To promote genuine long-lasting change requires a radicalization of thinking. Bullies need to be overpowered with muscle and actions through intention fueled by energies beyond our personal “thinking” ability.

This is not a time to stand down but a time to stand up with strength, wisdom and the willingness to act.

We are in a time where we must draw on all the wisdom available to us. Especially now…

Please share with us your divinely inspired acts.

Time to Surrender

It’s time to surrender our Will and be lead by the Divine.

There are many ways we protect ourselves from the greatness of life and possibilities that surround us. One way is by creating negative self-fulfilling prophecies that block our divine expression.

We have seen what happens when we create negative self-fulfilling prophecies, the kind where you have a bad feeling in your gut and some form of negative outcome comes true.

What negative self-fulfilling prophecies are running inside you that have been let loose and never ended that are in the way of your connection to your sacred blueprint and the rich passionate abundant and creative life you know is possible?

Have you had an imagined fear or a negative belief that you let run the show?

These negative self-fulfilling prophecies feel like a subtle friction that show up as a form of doubt where we forget about our sacred connection.

What can we do to move beyond that friction?

We can choose to call in a blessing to the noisy self -destructive negative creative patterns that cause us to stumble and feel like we can’t get to the state of the most loving and exciting vision of our lives.

Feel these places of friction, doubt and imaginary fear where there is no evidence to back it up. When you feel into those places and that line of energy and honor their presence then say the following prayer.

Prayer for Ending Negative Self Fulfilling Prophecies

As you address the fear say:

“Bless You and No More- I declare these energies to be complete and ask that these systems be replaced with love, wholeness, and holiness once again within me where the sacredness of this body comes home to itself.

Unlimited by my willfulness on this day, in this moment, I surrender my will in all the ways I protect myself from the greatness of life that surrounds me.

I release my will to reunite with the godhead, our Father, Mother, God. I let go and allow my love to prevail within me all the way to my cellular, electrical and structural fields.

I ask this for the highest good of all concerned. And to all of my ancestors I extend this blessing the reuniting of the holy of holies I am experiencing for it is my true birthright to be reunited with the source of all life, holy of holies, God, the Divine.

I offer this as a gift to all beings connected to me wherever they may be and whatever form they are in.

I take this breath now knowing that the spirit of resurrection comes within me and I rise up and step away from the deadness I have carried thinking it was my life.”

In love,

David and Susan

Tools for Thriving 2016

The Courage to Know

Knowing what’s true for you, what’s right for you takes courage. We are surrounded by demands that want us to surrender our sacred self and our integrity to the requirements of others. These demands can be from our society, our community, family and friends.

We have become so accustomed to being pushed on, called on or demanded on that we can forget who we are.

You can reclaim the heart and soul of your integrity by feeling the pull that’s around you that separates us from the holiness of our self-empowerment.

When you feel pushed into a choice, one you’re not really clear on STOP. Ask yourself this question:

“Is this really for my highest good and the highest good of what I really love?”

Now is the time for each of us to stand up in sovereignty and clarity from a place of love and power and choose to honor our own knowing. Yes it takes courage but we’re worth it.

Love,

Susan and David

Who are YOU when you follow your knowing?

The Gift of Uncertainty

We’ve been kindling our infinite curiosity.

Recently, we stumbled upon a BBC series Da Vinci’s Demons  based on Leonardo Da Vinci. It’s a fanciful occasionally accurate description of Leonardo’s passion and inventive capacity.

What made him such a great creator?  It was The Gift of Uncertainty.

Yes, he knew many things. But the most powerful component of his inventive engine was his ability to be wildly uncertain, to trust the fertile ground of his ignorance, his not-knowing.

When You Gotta Go, You Gotta GO!

Why is it that we don’t ‘go‘ when we know we’ve got to?

Aren’t we amazing all the ways we hold ourselves back?

Yes, we can even hold ourselves back from going to the bathroom when we really need to. For some reason, we don’t want to get rid of our own waste when it’s time.

Remembering the Adventure of Life

We were not born to live a mundane existence.
The essence of who we are – pure, clear and strong is life itself.
There is a pressure that comes from the world around us, sometimes even a demand that demands our surrender into a humdrum day-to-day way of being.

When we say yes to that demand, something inside at the heart of our being knows we are stepping out of the rich passionate flow of our life into an ordinariness that may be convenient but costly to our hearts.
