Asking for help can sometimes feel as if we are being submissive. But truly asking from our heart is allowing for possibility to form. Asking, either out loud or in silence, is using our voice as an instrument through which the Universe can then speak. Asking for help opens our heart wider to a flood of love that our Source is very willing to provide. When someone asks us for help, don’t we usually reply with yes, how can I assist? Namaste
I say some version of this every morning. It’s a prayer of surrender and guidance I picked up for Marianne Williamson and A Course in Miracles. The synchronicity of it is that I woke up feeling anxiety this morning and wrote it in my journal. Then I thought I should just put it out there and BAM, I pulled up Facebook and several other similar prayers popped up in my feed. So…it’s affirming us all today. The Universe Speaks! #Synchronicity
MONDAY’S SURRENDERING PRAYER – Richard’s adaptation
“Dear Universe, God, Creator, Co-Creator, Spirit, All – Guide me to the places you wish me to be, guide me in preparation for opportunities rising, speak through me today connecting me to whom you wish to speak, using me to my fullest capacity, that I may live in LOVE and step forward with my brothers and sisters in betterment”
I AM filled with Love. And so it is.
Here we are smack dab in mid July! A lot of people are on holiday, some are taking breaks from school, others still working harder and longer hours than ever. Where ever we we fall on the spectrum — it is important to slow down, just a bit, to smell the flowers. Or roses, if you happen upon them!
When you rise in the morning, look out the window, enjoy a deep breath of fresh July air and give voice to this new day. Step outside and feel the soft wet grass tickle your bare feet. View your garden as you walk to get the daily mail or note the park on the way to work, school or the airport.
Take time in the evening to express gratitude for the many gifts of the day. Use every free moment to observe and acknowledge what we easy walk by in a rush. Maybe it isn’t smelling the flowers that works for you, maybe its picking up a good book or taking a hot bath. The point is, slow up long enough to appreciate what ever it is you are doing and acknowledge to yourself that you love doing it.
Its important today because tomorrow, today will be gone. Namaste 🙂
One thing I learned from loss is: Without the job, the title, the car, the money – you discover who love’s and supports you for who you really are. And they are the same people who include and support everyone else’s successes and dreams – which is a good barometer to watch when you do have success.
Look everywhere for kindness – in the eyes of a stranger, to the words of our global brothers and sisters, through the laughter of our children, the nudge from our pets, in the sounds of nature. Keep looking – seek it as you would your favorite flower – acknowledge it, express it, then release it. It begins to multiply.
Painting doorways, creating possibility, having breakthroughs. The only way to really do it is to evolve ourselves. We evolve and move forward by releasing. Releasing is forgiving yourself for the million things you think you did wrong and the times you think you were not good enough. You were good enough. Love is interdimentional. It is not bound by what you’ve been taught or what you see on television or hear in conversations. Love knows no limit – it is not bound or attached and you are a child of that love. So go now and look yourself in the mirror. Tell yourself that you are forgiven – completely. Look yourself in the eye and say I love you – feel it come from the Universe. Now you are painting your doorway – creating your possibility and having that breakthrough…
Your breakthrough now becomes a stepping stone you give to others. Namaste.
