Life couldn’t be better than it is right now in this moment!
It’s been an interesting and educational year for me. Looking back, the lessons I have learned have
catapulted me forward on my path. Yes, there was pain, confusion, and disappointment, joy, love, peace and flow, isn’t that what we came here to experience….all of it!
I believe we chose to come here, as a human on this magnificent earth to have this amazing human experience, So really, the meaning of this life to me is simply to have an experience. How simple is that? Doesn’t that feel like a big load was taken off your shoulders? It felt like that for me.
We humans put so much pressure on ourselves. We need to chill and just be. I know, you may be thinking it’s easy to say, but I have bills to pay, children to care for, I can’t chill, I have to cook dinner!
I’m not talking about not living the life you chose, it’s about seeing it from a different perspective.
Big picture thinking is what saves me every time. When I find myself, feeling sorry for myself, or blaming outside circumstances or other people, even myself….in that moment I do my best to remember the big picture.
Another belief of mine is we are all here to express who we are in whatever way we feel drawn toward. It doesn’t matter what that looks like. When I ‘fly’ up into the magnificent black universe, that very still place to see the ‘big picture’, I see the world and the universe as a whole, meaning absolutely everything is connected- absolutely everything!!! So when something happens that wasn’t in my ‘plan’, it’s always ok because I know there is another plan, and I trust that life will show me the best possible situation for my ultimate goal, which is being the best version of me that I can be. I can relax, because life is my partner. My mind is limited and my soul/spirit is infinite. That’s a very big concept for the mind, so that’s when I go into the body. The body can handle infinite, the body both physical and energetic understands infinite. So after a few minutes of soaring up in the universe, I come back remembering that it is always ok, because I am here to have a human experience, and this must be it, because that is what I am experiencing. The fascinating thing about accepting and being with the experience is, that it is never awful, it is an experience and the energy of the ‘awfulness’ shifts instantly when I see it as part of this life that I have come here to live.
Embracing the ‘human factor’
“So ya, this all sounds good, but kind of airy fairy, how do I deal with life on a practical level?”
We really do have to believe we are partly human right now, and to honour that part of the experience as well as the spiritual part. Enjoying this human experience is the purpose! Enjoy it. Love all your little quirks. All your self-labeled bad habits, all your self- labeled pitfalls and all your self-labeled addictions. When we do this we experience a deep love for ourselves, and those around us. When we are in a state of love, this is an expanded state. As a matter of fact it is THE state to be in, because that is what life is; LOVE.
Take time every day to love in everything around you. Give people as much love as you can. Be gentle with yourself and others. Speak loving words, extend forgiveness to those who haven’t been loving towards you and hold loving thoughts about others and love them in all you do. Don’t judge or criticize yourself or others. Find an opportunity to love in every moment. And for those moments when you have found yourself being unloving- love yourself.
Love puts you in a higher flow and draws loving things your way.
Life is LOVE
I once asked my guides; why do the messages I channel all sound so similar? Their response was; because there is only one ultimate truth and the human mind must go around and around, and up and down and this way and that, to come to the simple truth…..the truth is too simple for the mind.
Reiki taught me that simple truth. The more I practiced Reiki I began to see it is the truth, meaning; we channel love when we do Reiki and life is love. The universe is the energy of love, the earth is love, the air is love, and everything is love.
All we have to do is be it, to see it.
To be love, is to see love in everything; in ourselves, in nature, in the outside world and in each other. Being love brings more love into your life. Love can look like money, valued possessions, relationships, and the perfect parking spot. The state of being love is a state of receptivity to the abundance of the universe. This is the so-called ‘Secret’.
“I choose to live through the open space in my heart. I look for love and find it everywhere.”
