Ordering in the Universe

I like the analogy of the Universe to a restaurant.

It’s important to decide what you want, like you do at a restaurant. If you don’t order anything, you’ll get water. And maybe bread. You’ll be sustained. Many people are living like that.

Still others are busy looking at what everyone else is getting, criticizing their choice of food or feeling jealous of what they are enjoying. But not ordering.

I often guide people in identifying what they want, what the heart is truly calling for right now. We aim to clarify what feeling or state of being is longing to be realized, to manifest. We imagine that – what it would look like in the everyday, what one might do or wear, who they would be with, etc.

Then we let it go. We set that vision free to be received. The order has been placed. We can act as if it’s on its way. We prepare in any way we may need to. We anticipate that a delicious meal will arrive, although we don’t know exactly when or even exactly what it will look like.

It sometimes looks like opportunity to meet someone, take a new position or move to a new place. It may come as a challenge that will actually teach you what you need to become who you want to be. It can come gently and gracefully as a beautiful surprise that brings joy.

It’s helpful to remember what you ordered. You know how the server sometimes comes over with a bunch of dishes and calls out the name? You all look at the plates she’s holding and try to recognize yours. It can be hard. It might not look as you had pictured in your mind’s eye. Take it anyway. Try it. This is a good restaurant.

In a New Years Day intention workshop this year, I led a group in a decision-making, clarifying process and in creating custom bracelets with words on them to remember our intentions all year.

My word is Simplify.

I ordered too much. It all came in wonderful forms and with challenges, joys and friends in plenty. I can’t eat it all. I can’t enjoy another bite while I’m so full.

If you get the hang of ordering in this Universe, and you follow multiple passions and utilize your unique gifts, this may happen to you too. You may feel weighed down. Your creative spark doused.

When you feel like that, stop. See if someone else wants what you have left. Take a break. Wait until you’re hungry again, then order judiciously. With discernment. In alignment with your intention.

Also remember that you can send food back in a good restaurant, if it’s not to your liking. The Chef will quickly create something else to try to make you happy.

Be Moved

Tears rolled down my face when I saw the Grand Tetons, an Aurora Borealis and the Caribbean Sea. 

I can barely listen to Adele sing without crying. 

My insides shook for weeks when I left a marriage, and all I had thought my life would be. 

Sometimes I’m so mad that I get hot. 

It’s all OK. We are supposed to be moved.

Yet we are taught to hold on and stand strong – in our convictions, opinions, and beliefs.
We seek assurances. Rules to follow to make everything turn out just so. The formula for happiness, true love, perfect health and then entrance to a heaven after all of this. We would rather things stayed where we put them.

But this life is a wild river leading to an ocean. Sometimes smooth and calm, sometimes stormy, raging. Always flowing. It cannot be contained or controlled.

We are meant to flow here. To be moved. To be taken, dragged or gently, to new shores.

We are meant to be moved so that we learn that all this is ephemeral. That there is no safety in gripping onto someone or something here. That it’s painful to try to stand still while the river rushes by. It’s exhausting to attempt rowing against the tide to keep your boat in one place.

We are meant to be moved so that we change our minds and open our hearts. So that we are teachable. Malleable. How can Life guide one who is set in stone? 

If Life is trying to move you, move. She wants to fill you with the realization of Love, but you have to be empty; not full of knowing, righteousness, shame or sorrow. 

Beginner’s Mind, Buddhists know, is what allows truth to be revealed – letting go of preconceptions, being uncertain and yet willing.

We are meant to be moved so that we learn to feel Love. 

When we cry from the beauty and sweetness in life, that is Love. Overflowing, pouring out our eyes.

When we are scared or hurt, what’s called for is Love. We need to reach out to others. We need to love ourselves.

Anger is a messenger of what can be done to bring Love into the situation or into the world, if we listen carefully.

Then we realize that Love is the constant. That Love will never die. That Love is here, in the depths. And that it’s the one thing that we can take hold of that will not leave, because it is our essence.

Be moved.
By overwhelming beauty and unimagined sorrow.
Let anger move you and fear shake you 
Into discovering the love that lies within.

Love & Blessings.

Here’s What I Do

I’m not a psychic reader, exactly. I don’t see your future if I hold an object of yours. I don’t (usually) hear your loved ones on the other side. I don’t see areas of imbalance or dis-ease inside your body. I don’t know what your dog is thinking.

I do know people who do all of these things however so hit me up if you need a reference.

I think what I do is best described by an old term. It’s outdated or just not used anymore. But remember “ESP”? It used to be the term for psychic phenomenon, mind reading, spoon bending and the like.

E.S.P. Extra Sensory Perception. I’m reviving the term because it literally applies here.

My gifts lie in my perception. I have extra clarity. Extra-quick awareness. Extra-wide perspective at times. I can see before others can the cause of their suffering, the gifts they are not valuing and the path to their freedom.

So I work 1 on 1 with clients or lead groups online and on retreat. I relay the information that I see through my Perception.

Also, I am given information through intuition, for sure. I may have a sudden knowing of what distortion of the truth we are dealing with. I just get an idea or “hear” a phrase (hear in my mind).

And I can feel what you feel. I use that empathic sense for information while we work. I notice the change when something is energetically released or feel where it is stuck in the body.

Those seem like Extra Senses too.

I am going to use my Extra Senses and Perception for the participants of the Owning Your Soul Gifts New Moon Journey that begins with the New Moon at the end of September. It’s an online journey for a small group so that each person gets individual attention to move forward with the moon cycle.

Join us if you are ready to see what is holding you back and take a big leap forward into owning your Soul Gifts and putting them to work in your life.
