The Gift of Spirit Help

There is a gift that you have that you may not be using. 
You put it away without realizing it was a gift.
Or never took it out of the box.
Or saw it but didn’t believe it could be real so tossed it aside.

It’s your connection with the spirit world,
with your loved ones who have crossed over,
with angels and guides and helpers in invisible form.

What? You don’t believe in invisibility? In things you can’t see?

They are real. As real as a breeze, as music, as full body chills and the warmth of the sun. 

What you “see” is the evidence of calling in spirit help. The opportunity that appears, the people that you meet, the idea that pops into your head that you can follow to your desire-come-true.

I forget to ask for help from Them sometimes. I struggle or stress until I remember that I am not alone. Then I feel that I am surrounded by Love. Then I see it in the world and my everyday life. 

I have psychic friends, mediums and spirit channels, who I sometimes remind to ask their Guides for help. To check in with the Ancestors or call to their beloved relative on the other side.

A Course in Miracles defines a miracle as a change in perspective. It’s the shift from seeing ourselves as separate and alone and vulnerable to recognizing our connection to the Divine and everyone/everything else as part of it too. In that we would know the Love that is available, the safety that we have, and the invisible team at the ready, waiting to be called upon.

We have free will, to struggle or not. To go it alone or to open to Love, Grace and God. We have to be willing to receive the miracle, to see things differently and to have a different experience of what is happening. 

We mobilize help from beyond by asking Them to help us – to learn the lesson, to find the way, to meet our person, to be of service, to get through a tough time, to have the courage to grow and change. You can call to a dear one who has departed this life, to a sage or prophet from the past, to a spirit guide who is with you whether you know their name or form or not.

Then expect results and be willing to do your part. Notice what is shown to you. I always explore something if it’s mentioned or pops up 3 times; a book, a method, a teacher. I met my husband on a website that was mentioned to me twice and then I saw an ad for it. Third time! OK, I’ll try it.

And always say “Thank you.” Acknowledge that you received Their message or whatever help was sent. Keep the relationship and communication going.

Open the gift of Spirit Help in your life. 
It was freely given. 
It is yours to accept.

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.
