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,

Sharing Beauty Stories

leaf with Dew

 

We wanted to share a blog written by our partner in Journey’s In Transformation, Gwen Mazer, so you could have taste of the heart and passion she has for Beauty. In March 2017 our RetreatAwakening Into Beauty centers around Beauty from the inside out where we can breathe in its essence and connect with our source.

FINDING  BEAUTY
by Gwen Mazer

Beauty knows no bounds, she is to be found everywhere.  She awes us with her stunning variations, in the spirit of nature with a walk in the woods, the infinite shapes and colors to be found in a flower, the fluttering of a hummingbird, the sparkle and roar of the sea. We are moved by the symphony of light, the sunrise, sunset, touched by the brilliance of the moon on a crystal clear night, surprised by the colors in a puddle after the rain.

Beauty manifests as joy in the delight and wonder of a gaggle of little children, the sound of their chatter, the colorful bouquet of their assorted clothing, and the air of innocence as they go ambling down the street hand in hand.

Beauty takes our breathe away with the fluid movement and grace of a ballerina, thrills us with the soaring flight of a modern dancer as he leaps gracefully through space, sends us into a moment of heavenly grace on the notes of music exquisitely played.

Physical beauty can be joyful to behold, can cause pain and anguish if we indulge in comparison or mistake glamour for real beauty. It can unravel our minds with desire, rage, envy, or lust. It can cause us to lose our senses, to forget the real source of beauty the light that shines from within.

In beauty is the embrace of true connection, serenity, compassion, love of the face lined with years of living, the delight of a baby born brand new, the eros of true love found and consummated, empathy, caring and deep intention to understand the feelings of another.

Beauty of being is discovered in our vulnerability, when we are willing to be truly seen by another. Beauty is found in our willingness to explore our perceptions, our thoughts, when we let go of our ideas of the other and realize we are all part of the human family.

Beauty can visit in unexpected moments, times when we have been cracked open enough to hear the quiet whisper of our inner voice and we listen. We may be guided to a fork in the road, to a path untraveled. We trust beauty to be our guide and travel onward as she lights our way towards wisdom and well-being.

We’d love to hear what’s beautiful in your life. Please share below.

Yours in Beauty,
David and Susan

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

A Cure for “I Don’t Know”

Not knowing how to do something or what’s around the next corner can feel terrifying even life threatening. ‘Not knowing‘ can be spooky and if we use old models of understanding a shock to our ego.

Venturing into the unknown can feel like climbing Mt. Everest.

Or being stopped as something as surreal as this pretend bullfighter.

When we hit the wall of our understanding, it’s an indicator that we’ve outgrown our old definitions for how we think our world should be.
