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.

Getting The Mind Out of the Body

As Dr. Joe Dispenza puts it, thriving requires getting the mind out of the body so that we can live in the present moment.

Our bodies biologically run emotional habits, histories and conditioning that were created in the past.  As these run inside us they create a time warped muck in our organs, tissue, nervous system and chemistry creating a profound state of confusion around what’s real and not real. This confusion causes tension and friction inside us. Tension and friction create disease.

We can’t heal if we are living through the filters of the past.
For a body to heal and thrive we must be in present time.

So the more we can extract our mind from our bodies the greater health and soul level expression we can have.

Extracting your mind from your body is an ongoing skill that can be honed.  Whatever the memory or issue is, it needs to be acknowledged and noticed with the willingness to change.

Just having awareness or noticing that a habit or belief is running inside us and being curious about it allows us to no longer be run by it.

As Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle states- the act of observation changes both the observed and the observer. Our understanding and integration follows. Curiosity is the beautifully simple elixir that promotes true transformative healing and joy.

Notice, feel, and be curious and healing and growth will follow with greater ease.

Freeing our unique natures that we came to earth to embody and expressing our soul level knowing is what it is time for now.

Do you want to be run by some habit of the past or do you want to live into the future that your heart and soul knows is possible? It’s time to be in the present by getting our minds out of our bodies.

Here’s an example from us about getting the mind out of the body in a surprising way.

So, how has your mind been running your body on autopilot?  Please share your experience in the comments section below.

Yelling For Your Attention

There is a lot of yelling going on around us these days. It’s in the media, it’s on Facebook, and maybe it’s even in your family. Sometimes it’s hard to separate the clear sound of truth in the midst of all the yelling.

The first step in gaining clarity is to notice the truth and reality of all the people wanting your attention and wanting to control you.

Yes control you.

Separating from the demands of others restores sovereignty and your sacred self and can give you the clarity and understanding you need to chart your own course that is your hearts desire.

If you notice the demands on your attention, the yelling around you, you are on your way to re-empowering your truth meter.

You can cure feeling demanded on by putting things in slow motion. That way you can tell what’s right or wrong for you.

Remember- Awareness is curative.

We’d like to know… Who has been yelling for your attention? Who is trying to control you? A family member? A political party? How are you gaining clarity in the midst of this? Please let us know in the comments section below.

Independence- The Achy Dark Side

Tools for Thriving 2016

The Achy Dark Side of Independence

We’re trained to think of ourselves as independent maybe even “rugged individuals”. We can do it on our own.

The positive aspect of our independence is that we can empower choices to break free from situations, people and environments that are binding us into a smallness that’s hard on our hearts. In millions of ways, the dominant culture all around us encourages the idea of our independent separateness.

Think of the models of heroines and heroes that you know. They all chose to bring forth change from a position of independent knowing. They acted on what they felt they must for the benefit of many. This is the upside of choices made from a place of individual, independent being. After all, no one wants to be a slave to anything.

And yet, what is the actual source of their heroic energy?

The source is their sacred union with the vast divine (or God, Yahweh, Spirit, the Sacred, Oneness, the Christ, the Quantum Field, you pick) that we are and surrounds us right now.

The achy dark side of independence is when we think we can do it on our own and separate ourselves from Source. It points to a greater wisdom that keeps calling us to sacred unity and wholeness.

…And yet we resist.

Resistance comes from the conflict inside us between the knowing we are part of something more vast and our conditioned ideas of “I am a strong independent person who can choose on their own.”

How do we eradicate this separation from source?

We first admit our willful separateness.  This begins the instantaneous alteration of our habits of thinking embedded in our minds and the miles of nervous system that run through our bodies.

Once you become conscious of this achy dark side of independence, you can be welcomed like the prodigal son or daughter coming to the home we all long to find and experience again.

Why is this so important?

When we live from a place of independence- “My Will” not “Thy Will” we cut ourselves off from a treasure chest of dynamic wisdom that can revolutionize every moment of our lives.

Reunion with our wholeness, our sacred union with the vast divine is required for transformative healing. The choice to reunite, to give up independent willfulness, produces an atomic delightful alteration of our total body.

Do not look away from the need to surrender your sense of independence. By Nature we are interdependent with one another and all of the life that surrounds us.

You can allow greater access, greater love too flow towards you by bringing down your boundaries of individualism. Every human builds boundaries. It is part of the history of false independence. And no human makes it on their own.

Look back in your life and cross-reference everything you’ve planned or visioned in contrast to what the pure serendipity your life has brought you. Like us, you will find that choices made outside of all your “good plans” are what have brought joy, passion and an abundance of life. That history can remind you of a greater love that calls you to sacred reunion and that it’s okay to let go of independent and will-full behavior and thinking.

You know there is a home fire burning for you. The door is open and embracing love awaits your surrender and joyful reunion.

Love,

Susan and David

There Is a Switch Within You- Tools for Thriving

There Is A Switch Within You

Do you feel pregnant?

It doesn’t matter what gender you are. Spring is a time when Life wants to pop out. There is a switch with you to let out the life inside that is just waiting to burst forth.

It doesn’t matter what gender you are. Spring is a time when Life wants to pop out. It’s just waiting to burst forth.

What would you like to deliver for yourself into the world?

Much has been written about how to intend and manifest. A lot of which is really about demanding in contrast to allowing what needs to be.

Here’s a blessing to help you open to allowing what needs to be and trusting that you will be attended to in love, by love itself.

Blessing

You are alive today in this timeline so that you may claim as never before sovereignty and pure creative empowerment. You are surrounded by a cacophony, a noise barrage of information that tells you that you are a cog in a great machine in which you have no power.

That is not true. You can within your lifetime know directly that you are present to and alive within the current of life and love that goes beyond everything you have ever been trained into.

Flip the switch

There is a switch within you that you have laid your hand upon but been uncertain to throw. Be assured that your beloved allies and the love that truly surrounds you is just waiting for that tiny movement from your hand to throw the switch and break free from what has shackled you and held you trapped in ever looping time-warping storms from the past or predictable future that you don’t want to really live.

Your destiny can change to possibility RIGHT NOW by throwing the switch that will begin to break you free, to launch you away from what you know is dead and no longer enlivening you.

Your switch may be located in your solar plexus or perhaps on the back side of your heart. But it is there.

What are the magic words that will help your inner hand flip the switch?

They are “I will”.

That means you are willing to go beyond what you have believed yourself to be. To go beyond every single projection ever placed upon you. Those histories only exist within you in a tiny collection of brain cells and nerve endings.

Remember these old patterns will defend themselves and try to tell you that what you long for is impossible to achieve. None of that is true.

You are born to overcome any form of limitation that lives within you. When you say “I will” it is a form of invitation to your sacred nature to activate liberty that is mouth watering, soul tickling and fun.

Practice saying “I Will” as an invitation.

And know that you have thrown the switch so that your inner illumination can cancel the old dark memories that are but a tiny veil pretending to be Mt. Everest. And then see what glorious light filled life you give birth to in the world.

Thanks for journeying with us.

Reprogramming Understanding

Tools for Thriving

Reprogramming Understanding

Understanding in its purest form is a liberating energy. We’ve been trained to experience understanding in ways that keep us living in the comforts of habits that rub us raw.

Isn’t that amazing that our understanding can become conditioned to keep us boxed in.

We are designed to be ever expanding our comprehension of what life is and what we truly are. Some of the outrageous things that are happening in the world around us can be used to break us free from our self-limiting definition of understanding into a liberated life changing relationship to the sacredness of the word.

Understanding is the bridge that our wisdom flows across.

Each of us has a wisdom bank waiting to be turned on in a greater way. We can bring forth a brightness so that we can see, feel and know in new ways what is going on around us and within us.

We even know where the on switch is for our luminous wisdom. Why would we not always turn that switch on?

Once turned on the Light we are will show us what is too small to live in and what wide open path is calling us. Change will naturally occur as we claim freedom, true freedom in ever-greater ways.

Sometimes we keep the light of our wisdom turned off so we can maintain old-fashioned comforts that are in fact worn out and wearing us out. Understanding in ever-new ways keeps us fresh and enables the true nutrition of our wisdom to come present in our bodies and minds.

Today notice how many times you think the word ‘understanding’ or say, “I Understand”.

Ask yourself, am I understanding in new ways or old ways.

Notice what new actions are called for and where your heart is moved to go.

Allow your habits of understanding to become refreshed and updated to ‘Now’.

Keep the word understanding alive, not a habit that shrinks you.

The gift is that you will leave behind what has confined you. We invite you to risk who you think you are, who you think you understand yourself to be and the light of your wisdom will grow you as never before.

Thanks for journeying with us.
