Being able to transform
Our fears takes awareness, commitment, courage and practice. For most of us, it’s not easy. But as we become better at doing so, our ability to be free, authentic and express our big dream increases dramatically.
It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
Being who we really are, expressing ourselves honestly, being bold and going for what we want in life can cause a great deal of fear in us. Many of us run away or hide from our fears because they seem scary, uncomfortable or embarrassing. However, most things that will help us to grow in life doesn’t show up without any fear at all.
As we strive to live with authenticity, it’s inevitable that we will encounter quite a bit of fear along our path. Most of us erroneously think that as we evolve in life our goal should be to get rid of fear. Unfortunately, completely ridding ourselves of fear isn’t possible or even desirable. Fear is an essential part of growth and can be used in a positive way for authenticity and fulfillment – if we are willing to deal with it in a direct, honest and conscious way.
The secret of peace is open to the crack between the past and the future and live in the moment we are in. ~ Coach T
How many times have you heard, ‘your thoughts create your life?” The thoughts we focus on the most are the ones that influence our emotional states, our behaviors, actions and the results in our lives. Some thoughts are empowering and support us in creating productive, magical and fulfilling lives. Other thoughts are debilitating, creating stress and suffering, while stifling our growth, happiness and progress. Some thoughts are based in reality, other thoughts are made up in the mind and not true.
Can you identify with this quote from Mark Twain – ‘I spent half my life worrying about things that never happened.’ How many of us spend our time regretting the past or worrying about the future when the present moment just slips by with a kind of subtle or not so subtle indifference? Why do so many of us live in fear and worry when there is a better way? What is a better way?
Next time you find yourself regretting the past or worrying about the future remember this – you can’t change the past or force the next moment to come sooner, so don’t worry about it right now. Go out and do something for yourself instead. Imagine this as the last opportunity you will have to do what you are doing. Savor the present moment. The next time you have to wait in line, use this free time as an opportunity to take notice of the world. This is a path to peace. Remember, how we spend our days in how we spend our lives.

Does your soul have a plan?
Absolutely! Even if your life conditions are showing unfavorable signs now I invite you to trust that something greater is emerging for you. Often times there are detours that is paved with prickly growth opportunities. These detours take us out of our comfort zones and into the next level of our evolutionary process. They are not conditions or appearances that we necessarily want to experience and some are outright ugly to bare and see.
However, what if I told you there is hope. If we allow space in our heart for trusting the process of unfoldment we will find that the universe will conspire to give us the favorable desires of our life. We will be moved from the prickly pavement to a vision filled with possibilities. Life happens and things will always be coming up for us to handle. The question is “do you have the tools and skill set to make the change?” The universe is always on your side whether you like what you are seeing or not. The universe is simply reflecting back to you, your most dominant thoughts and beliefs. The practice you will need becomes reflective listening. Moving yourself into a quiet space both externally and internally so that you can tap into the wisdom of the heart.
It is unimaginable because your experiences are different from another individual. They are feeling and seeing differently from you in each moment. An opinion or “solution giving” may just not be what’s needed.
I have been thinking about the concept of “walking in another man shoe” and what I have concluded for me is that the task is impossible. I can only stand in the gap with you whether in silence, with a hug or smile but the words often fail me. In fact the more silence that I can bring into the space will be the more opportunity for the inspiration of Spirit to flow into my heart, up to the brain and out my mouth.
You see the light I choose to share these days is the light of my presence. It may lead into “how can I support you?” but it definitely starts with my presence. To fully show up for someone else could be the act of lighting someone else’s candle. It could be just what the other person need in order to grow through the opening of their heart.
Joy is a decision.
It is a conscious choice. But it is even more than that. Joy is an obligation. We have an obligation to express and share our joy with the world – our unique calling. In this light, joy is more than an attitude; it is a potent and powerful source of energy. One of the major reason that so many people are depressed – living joyless lives is that they are not living their unique calling – they are wearing someone else’s shoes.
The best hope for a revolutionary transformation to take place to create a world that works for everyone is a worldwide, grassroots revolution of love in action, based in authentic community.
In this community we have to engage in open conversation and communication between elders honed by sometimes brutal experience and the wise and impassioned young, hungry for a way out of terminal disaster and for a way of life in alignment with their hunger for a new way of being and doing everything.
We long to be connected with others in an authentic community. What steps can we take to create authentic communities? Authentic communities welcome new people from all backgrounds. Authentic community does not have a max capacity there is always room for someone else that may need and can offer what your community is up to. Authentic communities collaborate with others. Before change can take place, leaders must recognize the need for intentional collaboration regarding policies, procedures and decisions. Only collaborative leadership can make communities succeed. Authentic communities empower those on the same mission. The greatest path to success is the path that helps lead other people to it. Authentic communities doesn’t just include people, it involves them. We should absolutely be welcoming of new people.
Light is the form of energy that makes its possible to see things. The highest and best understanding we can apprehend is clear knowledge of God that unfolds from within the innermost level of our being.
Our relationships offer us the greatest opportunities to gain a clear knowledge of God, because they provide us feedback on where we are not seeing the Divine – in ourselves. We all have blind spots – so others provide us a mirror – reflecting to us how much of the Divine we actually understand and embrace of ourselves.

Movement of Power
When we think as a victim – we think something is happening to me
When we think in terms of manipulation – we think something is happening by me
When we think in terms of ourselves as channels – we think something is happening through me
When we think of just being – whatever is happening is happening as me
Self-honoring requires a balance of responsibility, preference and personal power. To support you in making self-honoring choices practice including the following tips:
- Always take responsibility. Don’t try to project anything unto anyone else, not matter if you perceive it to be something “trivial”.
- Be honest with self first, even when it feels uncomfortable.
- Express your emotions appropriately. Give yourself permission to feel the full range of all your emotions.
