When we were born, we were in perfect harmony with our heart and the world. When we enter this world, we don't have anxiety, depression and stress. Through the process of growing up and trying to function in this world according to societal expectations and norms, we distance ourself from that perfect resonance of peace.

Return to InnocenceThe spiritual journey is about making our way back to our innocence so we can connect with the peace that existed when we started. The distortion we have is that we believe when life is better on the outside, only then we will feel peaceful on the inside. We barter and negotiate with life – “When xxx happens, then I will feel happy, fulfilled, relaxed, peaceful. And so, we give away our power. For as long as this is the process, we will elude peace.

Does life rob you of peace or can you find your way back to experiencing the messiness of life from a place of peace? By messiness, I'm referring to the frustration of drivers on the road, to things not going according to plan, to life not working out the way you expect it to. Can you embrace all of it from a place of peace? When we learn how to do this, we start to become peaceful, and so we become beacons of peace for the world. The heart of you is peace! This is a genuinely power-full truth. Peace does not come from the outside. We are peace. We are love. We are light.

The world at the moment is desperate for peace, and our natural instinct is to fight for what's right, but the very nature of this (even for the light workers) is still fighting. And the fight in itself is the problem. Can you be at peace with what is there? Can you BE peace, so that everybody that experiences you feels peace? Even peace when there is anger, peace when there is hatred, peace when there is drama.

When we show up to fight, even if it's fighting for what's right, it just doesn't help. Fighting and peace are not the same energy.

So, the change happens when each of us embrace peace as our center. Then we become peace and can distribute peace.

An essential boundary we need is not to let anyone, anything or any concept rob us of our Be Peacepeace. Nothing deserves that power. The author of Man's Search for Meaning Victor Frankl, a famous psychiatrist who endured Auschwitz, the horrific German concentration camp, a place of torture, suffering and death, said, “They took my clothes, my wife, my kids, my wedding ring. I stood naked before the SS, and I realized they can take everything in my life but they cannot take my freedom to choose how I will respond to them.” Many have captured this quote in the statement, "They can't make me hate them." For me, Frankl was a great teacher of peace when faced with unrelenting hardship and cruelty.

Through peace, we can spread light in the world.

10915176_866815173376709_4104930964361402383_nTrust is such a difficult concept and we use it as a benchmark in our relationships, environments and choices we make. Choosing to trust empowers you to be make to make better choices as the choice is not from a place of fear and protection but from a place of true personal power.

This is not saying trust blindly or be naiive about those people that may hurt you but more about choosing to trust yourself in the situation. Trust your guidance, your intuition, your knowing. This is the source if true power.

Our relationship of trusting ourselves impacts the way we relate with others in the world.

Learn to trust yourself. You have all the answers and support you need.

10897902_869969006394659_8726647209957382820_nWhen we choose to operate from a place of Love, the universe responds with more love. So many of us make choices based on fear, mistrust, insecurity, control, revenge, justification even hatred.

I long for a life and a society that can make love the core driver of interactions.

If we can learn to lead with love, we could love ourselves more, we could be less judgemental, we could treat others with kindness, we could heal our lives. Even when in pain, even when you been hurt, even when you need to improve your boundaries make love the core.

10991157_872951892763037_1809750847809665508_nWe invest so much energy in trying to control our lives. We think that we are able to limit our fear, vulnerability and risk of getting hurt by always being in control. The reality is the we invest a lot of time and energy fighting. Fighting to make things right, fighting to make things fair. Working so hard to make things the way we think they should be.

In this way we rob ourselves of the joy of the moment, of the opportunities that present themselves to us. To the magic of this life.
The only thing we can control is our response to life and to the world. The rest is not our problem :).

Learning to trust life and ourselves and the wisdom that comes from our soul is key to a joy if peace, love and joy.

No matter how much you want to be, you are not in control.

A lesson I continue to learn daily 🙂

11001875_875018302556396_9107884893008087371_nWhen we have loved, hurt, lost, invested, cared, hated, felt trauma etc ..... we leave a piece of ourselves with that person, time and or event. Energetically we can then find ourselves scattered and not able to focus and enjoy the present moment.

Commanding our spirit to return to us allows us to come back to the place of peace and wholeness. This does not change the memories, it changes the present.

Where is your spirit? Spend some time in quiet and call it back cutting the energetic ties that no longer serve your joy.

Light a candle and pray for love and light to bring you back to your wholeness.

10995850_875759255815634_4882883459522320395_nHow often do you swallow your words, hold back your opinions, hide your needs, squash your emotions?

A key part if personal growth and empowerment is permission to speak your truth, say what you think, feel, want and value ...... unapologetically.
The throat is a conduit to aligning our hearts with our minds. It allows us to express our will. It allows us to make an impact. Do you long to be heard? Speak up .... it's ok. The world needs your perspective to be felt and heard.

Take note how you speak is also your responsibility so how you speak your truth will most definitely impact the response you get .... but from today give yourself permission to allow your inner voice to be expressed.

The Universe does not lead us or do things to us, it is constantly responding to the choices we make and that which we are open to and believe in. It's time to take ownership of the life you in and choose what you want. More than that we deserve happiness, are entitled to joy and life can be filled with peace.

11024621_876991029025790_2729280339936449020_nWhat fear is holding you back from your joy?

The fear of failure?
The fear of success?
The fear of being laughed at?
The fear of not being liked?
The fear of being hurt?
The fear of causing pain?
The fear of what people will think of you?
The fear of doing things wrong?
The fear of being alone?
The fear of your vulnerability?
The fear of being taken advantage of?
Etc etc etc

Fear is the ego's way of trying to get you to remain the same. If we succumb to the fear we never grow.

It is ridiculous to say don't be scared, don't have the fear - we all do. Growth is about embracing your fear and no longer letting it control your choices by stepping into the COURAGE of your Soul.

Make friends with your fear. Know it's just information. Let go of letting the fear control you.

The best way to let fear stop controlling you is to face it full on.

Here's to your courage 🙂

11031069_878399875551572_5176920084125133151_nWhat brings you true joy. A sense of peace and flow. A deep knowing that you are being true to yourself and time just slips away.

This is joy, our true purpose as humans is to live a life of joy. It is our calling. It is our right. It is necessary for peace to be restored.

Joy is felt, it is experienced and can be in a moment. It is the peak mystical experiences we have that we long for more of.

So many of us allow our responsibilities, our guilt, our anxieties, our worries to drive our choices. For today, even just for a minute. Surrender to your Soul and allow your joy to lead you.
