Manifesting Your Spiritual Community In 2021

candle-picture-id639302904

Now more than ever, intentional community has become more essential to our spiritual health and well-being. Because of our current realities, we are all searching for new ways of connecting and creating support for and with each other. Trust me: It’s quite a challenge for any living thing to grow in isolation — even some gardeners believe in the concept of “companion planting,” whereby seedlings thrive when they have neighbors nearby!

Over the past months, I’ve often thought of this quote from Game of Thrones: “In the storm the lone wolf perishes but the pack will survive.” It can feel like we are in a storm right now, turbulence of a world gone off-kilter. We cannot go it alone… we must reach out to each other! 

At some level, you already know that’s true (which is why you are reading this… There are no accidents!). We are designed for relationship. But in our current age of digital overload, spiritual seekers express three main concerns or blocks to pursuing intentional connection and community. 

See if any of the following sound familiar to you:

Live an Enchanted Life by Renewing Yourself Using Your Inner Mystic

enchantedlife

“Mystics see that everything has a spark of energy and potential. This thought alone elevates the mundane and makes everything transcendent, while still being grounded in our earthly reality.”

Renewal is inevitable and it’s a universal law of creation. Everything is in some phase or state of renewal at all times, and human beings are no exception to this natural law. Looking to the nature of a butterfly — a larva that within its cocoon that rests, grows, gestates, and comes to be a butterfly as we see them, flying on beautifully ornate wings — tells us how renewal works. It also tells us that some phases of this ongoing cycle do not always feel good, even though we can survive and thrive through all its various phases.

How To Start Your Spiritual Journey In The New Year!

spiritualjourney

Does a “spiritual journey” sometimes feel like something only special people with magical access or a whole lotta time, money and emotional space get to do, or even think about?

I remember feeling like that at times in my life, especially when I hit bottom from alcoholism 35 years ago (yup, just turned 35 years clean and sober a week ago!)

Around that same time, my parents had just literally lost everything – their house, whatever money they had saved – and I felt like we were all drowning. I honestly thought any kind of spiritual connection for me was irreparably broken and whatever God there was operating in my life, was following me around with a fly swatter. 

But this, too, was part of my journey. I was being called to surrender to Spirit, to learn the dance steps, and to follow along.

And so, let me assure you that no matter what is going on in your life, however you may have been let down, whatever temporary outer conditions may have you believing you shouldn’t or can’t or don’t deserve access, that you 100 percent HAVE your own spiritual journey. Hello! In fact, you’re already on one right now!

You DO Matter!

youdomatter

What a miracle you truly are!

The Source that makes all living things in the Universe is also the same Source that’s inside of you. This Divine Source interacts and is connected with the whole of you, which means your body, mind and soul.

To honor your divinity, to live a spiritual and physical life of happiness, serenity, abundant health, and to experience a loving and successful relationship, it’s important to understand and get to know your true essence—your soul. You must begin to reach inward to meet your soul, to move through all the layers of what’s been built up inside and around you over the years.

Growing Seeds of Infinite Potential

cycleoflife

"Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, No one can count the apples in a seed."


Contemplating these words inspire me to not underestimate the potential of the coming year. We live in a world of infinite potential. Small actions with a sense of natural timing will grow fruitful results.

GOOD SEED
©1-18-13 Will Hale – Tadpole Parade

A new day dawns tomorrow
Once a seed is planted
It is up to God to make it grow

I have watered, fertilized
and trust the sun will rise

Planted but not forgotten
Left alone but not neglected
The process of life is out of my hands
Surrender is not giving up
It is letting go of control

Like the seed in the ground
It is my time to rest.
The tilling, planting, and praying
Is done
I can trust the spark of creation
To do what love does, Grow

Feathers Aren’t What Make You Fly

flock-of-birds

We don’t control
The reflections in a mirror
Only our interpretations

We live best
With birds of a feather

Be with
The ones with
Joy
The ones with peace
The ones in harmony

Not the flock
Who have plucked
All their feathers
To prove they are not worthy
of flying

Your Home Is With You Always - For It Is the Light of Your Inner Sanctuary

christmas-candle

Home…

It is a powerful word, a word which, for me, simultaneously evokes a vision of material structure and a feeling of inner sanctuary. 

These months of the pandemic have been challenging for many. And I am well aware of the emotional weight resulting from loss and fear. Here in our own Humanity’s Team work environment, there have been several stories of illness and death related to the coronavirus.

My heart is open and full of compassion and love for all those affected and struggling.

I also can’t help but notice with these many months of sequester and seclusion, that life seems to have provided a material answer to a collective yearning for home in a spiritual sense.

What is this call to go home, to be home, and to feel at home?

Out of The Darkness, Into the Light

light

Our reality has been constructed to distract you from what you have to pay attention to in order to be free.

Right now, your entire reality is distracting you from what you have to pay attention to in order to be free. And what you have to pay attention to in order to be free resides within you. At some point, it is everybody’s eventual destiny to wake up to this truth. It is everybody’s eventual destiny to stop looking outside of themselves, and instead, begin to explore the vast inner reality that dwells within. 

It takes courage to shine the light of your awareness on yourself. It takes courage, commitment, and it takes consistency. Every now and again you’ll bump into someone who has explored the depths of themselves, and not just experienced the infinite light, love and potential that resides inside, but also uncovered everything that’s in the way of humanity. People like you, authentically living there.

You Are A Gift

christmas-tree-picture-id1270144004
"We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us." —Marcel Proust

I've Been Thinking...

Can you believe that Christmas is this week?! Can you believe that New Year’s is around the corner? I’m amazed that we’ve reached the end of this year. 

As I think about this week and this year, as well as the new year ahead, I can’t help but be in awe of everything. I can’t help but be humbled. I can’t help but be grateful that I am here. 

So many heroes got us to this week. So many people stepped out of their comfort zones to save others, to feed others, and to help others this year. It’s been truly breathtaking. And yet, I know so many who were with us this time last year are no longer here. I know there is so much grief and so much loss. I’m so sorry if you find yourself feeling this kind of desolation and grief. I’m sorry that COVID has taken so many lives and so many livelihoods. 

COVID has felt like a level 5 tornado. It has wreaked havoc and caused so much destruction—physical, mental, financial, and spiritual destruction. It has ripped up families, relationships, and careers to the point where I think we are all now standing in some kind of rubble. As I write that line, my eyes well with tears. I can feel my heart cracking. I can feel it beating, but I can feel its cracks too.

Connecting To Harmony

Connecting To  Harmony

What you are trying to attain isn’t outside of you. You can only ever experience that which is already authentically present within you. We’ve overly complicated everything. You’re here to be you and that means no longer resisting any aspect of you, no longer rejecting yourself, no longer denying yourself, no longer punishing yourself. You see, the key to your transformation is self acceptance and self love. 

At some point in addition to restoration of safety, we have to get to a place where we are able to be in our human experience and to realize that being human is the most divine thing of all. We have to lay a foundation of peace and harmony. And on top of that foundation, we can then begin to build a platform of self love and self acceptance.

Develop Spiritual Immunity to Holiday Stress

candle-light-picture-id469975953

The holidays should be a time of joy. Yet they can often be filled with extra work, stress and exhaustion. 

This year brings about an entirely new level of stress. Many families are separated. Others are trying to fill the void of a loss. 

2020 has been a year of turbulent relationships, conflicting news, uncertainty and change that no one was prepared to deal with.

In addition, the days are getting shorter and we’re faced with less sun and more hours of darkness...

It’s enough to make anyone want to curl up in a ball and hibernate.

Harness Your Spiritual Gifts and Unleash Your Personal Power in Life and Business

Release Yourself by Realizing a New Order Within Yourself

Awakening-1

Awakening to Real Life occurs in direct proportion to waking up from our own sleeping nature -- a fact which brings us face to face with some of life's oldest and greatest spiritual mysteries. 

The myth of the phoenix, the riddle of the sphinx, even the story of Christ's birth in a dimly lit stable of barnyard animals… all point to the existence of one nature dwelling in the midst of another; of two separate orders of being merged in one relationship -- one lower, one higher -- one asleep to itself, the other awake, above, and in charge of its lesser parts. This invisible state of self must be realized before its relationship can be reversed and the sleeper awakens to his or her indwelling Spirit. To this end, we must learn to use each moment possible to awaken to ourselves instead of surrendering ourselves to our usual circle of dreams in which we alternate in appearance as either hero or villain.

Is Your SOUL the REAL You?"

young-woman-looks-thoughtfully-and-sadly-through-the-window-into-the-picture-id1201429767 Your soul is powered by the energy of love!

You’ve heard me talk a lot about the soul lately. I can’t help it, I’m so excited about this limitless power we all possess. It’s sort of like having Harry Potter’s wand or Samantha Stevens’ twitchy nose. Whatever it is you want or need, your soul can make it happen!

Many of you have asked me how do you start connecting with your soul? Well, I always say the same thing, which is by remembering that you are a soul first. You’ve heard me say this again and again: "You're a soul that comes with a body—not a body that comes with a soul."

When you look in the mirror, think about it … Is it the real you? NO! The Soul is pure consciousness, and the true essence of who you really are. When you acknowledge that you’re a soul and not purely just a physical body, then believe me when I tell you, there’s no limit to what you can achieve!

Realize the Crowning Moment of Life

crownng Realize the Crowning Moment of Life

The crowning moment of any species, the culmination of its possibilities, can’t be just its ability to adapt and survive. Natural history demonstrates that entire populations peak and are then terminated whenever Mother Nature so decides. The great book of life simply closes out one chapter of creation after another once it no longer serves the need for which it was created. Nothing can resist these decisions, which are reached in a higher order of reality than the one they act upon.

To the casual eye, the extinction of a species, for whatever reason, seems like it takes a very long time. But a closer look at this process tells another story. Our scale of time is skewed by the short span of life we are each allotted on this earth. In truth, compared to the lifespan of our planet, an entire species—let alone an individual within it—can vanish virtually overnight.

When we view life through this kind of sweeping perspective, it may be hard to see how such a grand scale of life has anything to do with our individual lives. So let’s examine these ideas and make them very personal and specific to your life and mine.

Changing the Darkness Into Light

Blog-dark-light-9-4-20 You matter more than you know.

You are here to feel. You are here to bring into completion everything that every human being before you that did not have the courage to resolve or complete. 

Your purpose on this planet is to embrace everything within you that needs to be embraced. By liberating your personal vibration and frequency, you become one less place in the world that perpetuates separation. The reason you are so sensitive, and so deeply empathic, is because you are here to feel, not just on behalf of yourself, but on behalf of a planet of people who have yet to remember who they really are. 

Your role here is to give up the need to understand what's happening and to just simply be available, to feel what there is to feel within you. Recognizing that every time you are feeling an emotion, you are setting humanity free. Every time you are thinking, you are setting humanity free. Every time you're examining a belief or a story, you are setting humanity free.

Are You Codependent With Your Higher Power?

feng-shui-balance-daybreak-picture- Are you expecting your higher power to do for you what only you can do for yourself?

Hilary wrote:

I am eating very clean and working out five days a week. I try to meditate every day. Despite this, I feel disconnected and unloved by my Higher Power. I know this is just how I FEEL and not reality. I tell my little girl it’s not true…but I can’t seem to change this belief. I know connection will help me. I need some guidance from you to hear my Guidance!

It’s wonderful that Hilary is eating well, exercising and meditating. But taking loving care of herself involves much more than that. The fact that she feels disconnected from and unloved by her higher power indicates that she is disconnected from her feelings and not loving herself – that she is operating from her wounded self.

Telling her inner child that something isn’t true is not at all the same thing as living from the truth. If she is abandoning herself by ignoring her feelings – staying in her head rather than in her heart – by judging herself, by turning to various addictions (even meditation can be an addiction if the intent is to bliss out and avoid her feelings, or to control God), or by making others responsible for her feelings, then she is operating from a closed heart. There is no way to connect with her guidance when her heart is closed.

I write one page at a time, with only one to five words per line. The structure can look like poetry but has more to do with the physical limitations of a handwritten page and my desire to emphasize multiple meanings. My Page poems are a combination of sketch pad and journal.
