“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,
