Day break breathes
The sun rises ~ tells us, “Morning has come.”
Yesterday is over
Night slips away and allows the dawn to rise and to shine!
Again, we awake ….we’ve been given another opportunity to be present in life – open to receive any messages Spirit has for us
We can choose to rush through morning to get through our day, closed off to God and Sprit
Even in a closed-off-mode of hustle bustle Grace can happen
Divine Spirit, the Grace of God, whatever you choose to call to it…. can pierce through our daily activities and wake us up. It may be in the form of profound gratitude that we experience. It may be in the form of intuition, or it may be in the form of a deep realization. When Grace happens we connect with Spirit, with the Divine, in clear and profound way.
Spirit can speak to us through feelings, signs, intuition and in countless other ways. Sometimes it comes during mediation and prayer and other times it interrupts our day, interrupts our thoughts and our busy schedule.
Sometimes it’s a chance meeting that turns into a lifetime friendship, or a random conversation with someone who says something that makes you realize they see you differently than you see yourself. Sometimes an idea is sparked that opens the pathway to a better life.
…and “magic happens”
God, Divine Spirit, speaks to us ~ and the gift of clarity appears and we see life differently
Inner truths are revealed and can no longer be denied ~ gratitude fills our hearts
Sometimes along life’s journey we abandon ourselves, our dreams.
Sometimes we deny ourselves what we are capable of and keep ourselves from speaking up, from standing up, from reaching out.
Sometimes we keep ourselves held back, we put ourselves in a teeny tiny box and wish for a bigger life. We unknowingly ask others to keep us down and if they dare try to empower us we just may resist, make excuses and get angry at them.
The longer we stay the course and actively pursue our dreams (not just dream of them), the more we face our inner demons of fear, doubt, insecurity…. They challenge us. But, how long will we allow those inner demons to stop us from moving forward in the direction of our lives.
As we continue to take action steps forward, and continue to connect with Spirit through prayer, mediation, and gratitude, things begin to shift. Little by little, and step by step.
Little by little clarity appears, confidence grows, and things unfold for us that show us we are on the right path. We become stronger than our old sabotaging habits. We out grow our limited believes. Rather than hoping we can achieve our dreams, we are simply taking strides in that direction.
We become focused only on living in the present and we no longer frighten ourselves with the “what ifs”.
Perhaps we only see as far as a few steps ahead, but our faith grows and we allow ourselves to be lead or guided by something bigger than us, Divine Spirit, God.
And little by little new beads of clarity occur, awareness occurs, revelations happen.
We have shed our old skin, our old habits are clear to us, old limiting belief’s come out of the darkness of our subconscious and into the light of our conscious where we can see them and see how untrue they are.
The past two months have been filled with personal revelations, beads of clarity, and awareness. It’s rather overwhelming, but I’ve learned when spirit speaks I need to listen and take it all in. Sometimes it feels unbearable to see how we hold ourselves back, and see the patterns we’ve held for years, or decades.
How deep are you willing to go in order to see inside yourself the things that hold you back?
How willing are you to reach the depths of your core and change the things that need to change in your mind and your habits in order to become the person you were born to be and achieve the deep desires of your heart?
Makes me think of Deepak Chopra’s words:
“It’s a phenomenon that psychologists call Premature Cognitive Commitment. Premature, because we make it at a very early stage of our development. Cognitive, because that’s how they cognize or see the world. And commitment, because it fixes us to a particular reality, it imprisons us in a fixed mode of perception.
There are many variations of these experiments. In India, when they train elephants, they take the baby elephant and tie it with an iron chain to a huge tree. Then they start cutting the size of the chain and the tree. Ultimately you can tie the elephant which a big animal now, with a flimsy rope to a green plant but the elephant is unable to escape. It’s made a commitment in its body-mind that it’s in a prison!
Or you can do another simple experiment. Take some flies and put them in a jar. After a while remove the lid from the jar and you’ll find that most of the flies, except for a couple of pioneers, will not be able to escape. They make a commitment in their body-mind that they’re in a prison.
People will tell you who work in aquariums that you can separate fish from each other. They’re in big glass tanks and the separations are transparent glass partitions. You can remove the glass partition after a while. The fish will swim to the edge of where the partition was and return. They made a commitment that that’s as far as they can go. ”
Whereever you are in your journey toward living your vision, Grace Happens. It happens more when we’re deeply open to it, but even amidst closed perception…. Grace Happens.
The patterns we have may not be fully clear to us since they live deep in the psyche (the unconscious). Many of these patterns we learned early on, like the above example of the elephant and the aquarium, and it’s not until we challenge our perceived limitations that we discover their presence.
When Grace happens, we’re given a key to a breakthrough. We can choose to ignore it and deny it, or we can choose to do something with it.
It can happen everywhere, anywhere and at any time – it’s up to you to be open to its message.
