Awakening

When someone awakens, they come to a realization or awareness about something more vast in life. This is not just merely opening one’s eyes to see but one’s heart to embrace, one’s mind to understand, and one’s spirit to embrace truth. The response to awakening to a new understanding concerning our existence, spiritual truths, and new concepts is like waking up on Christmas day and discovering a whole new type of gift waiting to be unveiled.

There is a child-like innocent joyfulness to begin to walk with a more open heart and embrace truths that once were in the dark but are now exposed to the mind. Once things are exposed, they can not be covered again. Even if an individual tries to turn a blind eye to them, they transcend the darkness within a person’s own spiritual sight. Once we understand something to be true, it can not be untrue again. Once we understand, we can not misunderstand. Once we see, we can not go back to being blind. The gravitational pull toward the honesty within the soul can never return to where it was.

Awakening is arising to embrace a more vast understanding of who we are, why we are here, and our divine purpose for being here. It is a transcendent pull toward serving humanity from simply serving one’s self. This comes from our capacity to see ourselves as one human existence with many pieces within the puzzle of life. We come to understand what Jesus spoke of when He asked the Father to make us One as He is One with His Creator.

It is a new birth into a new and more broadened lifestyle. Awakening sparks creativity, charity, love, and healing. There is no healing without transcending to new levels of understanding. We can not heal stuck in the same mud we have walked in for years. Healing takes movement, trust, allowance, and an open heart. When we awaken, we honor ourselves as a whole and are filled with possibilities instead of hindrances. Jesus spoke, “There is none so blind as those who will not see.” He spoke of spiritual blindness and a willful closing off of what is truth. His description is true blindness that causes sickness of the soul.

Our healing of ourselves and humanity depend upon awakening to who we are, why we are here, and our interconnectedness to all of what has been created for us to experience. Our lives and existence depend upon our acceptance of one another within our fold because we are One in the eyes of God. Therefore, we must become One in our own eyes to be a humanity filled with love and God’s light. Healing takes place through accepting what is and rejecting what once closed our hearts off to the reality that we are nothing without one another.

Be all you can be, and seek out an awakened heart and soul. Seek, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the spiritual door will be open with light that shines brightly into your heart and spiritual eyes.

Weekly Wisdom: Learn the Value of Relationships

In our own section of this world we have relationships with different people and in different ways. Some are acquaintances, family, some life partners, some deep friendships, and some are just passing through. They all have value in learning about them and also about ourselves. The people we attract into our lives are those who teach us the most about ourselves inside and out. Sometimes they test us. Sometimes they help us to become better and more aware beings.

People speak to us how they value or do not value us as well. We can tell by the quality of time they spend with us. Notice how I did not say amount of time, but quality. We can spend very little time with someone and be deeply loved and involved with them. It’s all about heart connection and how deep we decide to go soulfully and expressively.

This coming week, take a look around you. Determine the place each valuable person has in your life. Ask for wisdom as to what that person is helping you to see about not just them, but yourself. Relationships help us evolve. Sometimes they hinder us and sometimes they help us move forward. It is up to us as to which of these someone is doing. If they are hindering, it is their issue to work on. Don’t mix up their issue with your own. Either you are in their life to give them a hand up or they are there to teach you not to stay stagnant in a place where you are not productive. Move onward!

Some relationships expand us. They are there to help us see our God given potential and they always want the best for us. Regardless of where they are in life, they are always moving us forward, encouraging us to be more, do more, expand more. These are treasures; earth angels, and blessings who have been planted there for our evolution and to achieve excellence. Hang around and soak up their wisdom!

Some are continual heart companions. Whether close in proximity or far away, they are those who have your heart in mind and share with you theirs. They are there in your life to help you process your own frustrations and grow in love and acceptance. They spark your creativity, help create inspiration, and allow you to be yourself in good times and in not so good times.

Consider your relationships this week, and determine what each one means to you and why they are there. Think along the lines of your inner growth, healing, or expansion. Journal if need be. Getting clarity on life helps to move forward in it.

Loving you from here!
