I do not at all understand the mystery of grace- only that it meets us where we are, but does not leave us where it found us.” ~ Anne Lamott

When we have the courage to look inside, we awaken to infinite possibilities.   When we bring the act of mindfulness into our lives, we calm the waters and allow the multi-sensory experience to awaken our souls. When we trust that all is as it should be, and trust in higher purpose- we can become more centered within our own being. Give the gift of GRACE to yourself. There is an art to the act of giving and receiving …it requires the balance of grace and love

 Some of us can receive grace readily and thus flow easily on the universal winds, and others put up blocks for whatever their own personal reasons may be. They may not be trusting or believing that they are deserving of receiving grace.   According to Daphne Kingma, “Trust is believing that the thing you had faith in will actually come to pass, and in a way more gracious and wonderful than you could have ever possibly imagined. It means that what you have believed in your heart you can actually rely on to become true in reality.” What a powerful sentence and you can feel the energy as you read it. This is a gift of grace that goes beyond the mind and settles down into the heart. Set your intention to give and receive more gifts of grace. In doing so, you will be able to look more deeply within; immerse yourself in this positive and wonderful flow of energy.

I wish for you, the gift of being able to look into your own heart- and to appreciate the joy that you find there.

Love, Joy, Happiness and Peace to all,

Step INTO Your Power

June 15, 2021

"It's Your Time. Step Into Your Power."

The time is right, and it's right now.
True story:
When I was young, I was a people pleaser. I stayed quiet in most situations, and I did not speak my truth. Although I wanted to be bold and daring, I constantly gave away my power- to keep the peace.
Even as a young adult, navigating my way through the corporate world and new relationships, I found myself firmly entrenched in old patterns.
"keep quiet, don't make waves, lay low, operate under the radar"
I thought these behaviors kept me safe, but really it only served to tamp down my authentic voice and not live to my full potential.
Fast forward to now: As a spiritual seeker; and empowerment coach for many years, I have done massive amounts of work on myself.
The "work" still continues.

“Slow down, do small things with great LOVE!”  

 
🌷🌹🌻
I recently taught a virtual workshop* and the sentence above was how I closed out the class.... It's so impactful, I'll say it again.
"Slow down, do small things with great LOVE."
I think it's a great reminder to us all. It helps us to put our lives in perspective, and to recognize that the illusion of "busy-ness" and almost requires us to live in the present moment.
