All that’s required of you in the moment of anger…

Look at this lost and pained soul standing before you who has just hurt you, acted from their ego self, and know that you no longer want to look like them, act like them. They’re showing you a part of yourself that you’re ready to surrender.

All that’s required of you in this moment of anger is to see the other person as a wounded soul doing the best they can from their own level of awareness. Love them for their pain and struggles because you’re just like them. By loving them, you’re healing yourself.

Rise above the unconscious ego behavior they’re showing you – because it’s ugly, selfish and desperate, and that’s not who you are. That’s not who you aspire to be.

One simple breath and a request for guidance, pulls you away from habitual reaction and raises you a notch towards your great soul potential. Thank the messenger for the lesson; thank the soul standing before you who triggered your reaction. Your anger is revealed so that it can be healed.

The next time someone says or does something that triggers your anger, you’ll already be removed from the ego experience, more in touch with your soul’s wisdom, watching it all unfold from your divine lens. You’ll pause, take a breath, adjust your lens, and choose your words gracefully. Compassion will pour through you if you allow it.

This is the gift of your anger. This is the gift of your opponent arriving with their sword drawn, eager to slice a piece of you. In that moment of sacred recognition, everything changes, and you realize that nothing and no one can ever hurt you or tarnish your lovely soul – when you view it through your divine lens.

Ego Lens or Divine Lens?

The most wonderful thing about being human is our ability to choose. In this earthly realm, we’re allowed to experience the perfect combination of destined soul mission and free will – every moment of our lives.

We each come here with a great soul intention to live up to our greatest potential, line our lives up with our highest self, and do great work that helps others. Yet we also hit bumps in the road; loss, illness, financial challenges, childhood pain and relationship turmoil.

Free will allows us to decide exactly how we’ll view each challenge and how we’ll use every gift we’ve brought with us.

No one else chooses our viewpoint for us. We are the ones who determine how we view our life story.

We can choose to view this world as only a physical world with random tragedies and meaningless coincidences. Or we can choose to view life through the eyes of our soul.

When we align our ego mind with the wisdom of our soul – we see things differently. Light pours through us and reveals the hidden beauty of each moment. We see that each challenge was perfectly designed for our highest good before this lifetime began.

We understand that the purpose of each bump in the road has been to help us grow and awaken – which is the primary reason we incarnated into this physical realm. We become empowered with wisdom and compassion.

All it takes is an inner shift of perspective. This occurs when we connect to our higher self through meditation, prayer, choosing love over fear, or simply calling out for divine guidance. A simple request for wisdom and understanding is always answered. Take a breath. Ask now…

You already know how this ends…

You already know how this ends…

You know that in the end you will be fully revealed as who you came to be and you hope that this revelation won’t be on your deathbed when the illusion finally fades and it’s too late to change everything.

And you hope it won’t be when you’re too feeble to do your soul’s work. And you hope it will be now. Today. Not tomorrow, although tomorrow is not too late.

But today is always better.

Today is always the best day; to start everything, change everything, love everyone like you never have before, drop your fear on the ground and forget to pick it up.

Because today is juicy and alive and tomorrow may never arrive.

And today is when you planned to finally listen to your soul’s wisdom, use your divine lens to see what you never saw, to know everything you’ve needed to know.

Today is the day you meant to transcend all limitation, to release all fear, to take the big step, to throw out the old, to swing open the door to your heart and see everything fearlessly, recognize your shit, embrace your gold, and get it done the way you came here to get it done.

Today is that day…

I Couldn’t See the Logic of Not Jumping

Because I couldn’t see the logic of not jumping off the cliff and instead felt, with all my heart, that the jump must be made, I took the leap; it was the leap that changed everything and brought me into the glory of a luminous world that lives within everyone and everything.

leapAnd once I’d made that leap it became so easy to do it again, and again, whenever I found myself in a corner and couldn’t see the light. I had discovered that light lives in the leap. And love awaits the courageous act.

And now nothing could ever keep me from the leap or dampen my courage. What a gift this was and I am still so grateful. It is the best truth I ever learned and worth every bruise I ever suffered.

Without the leap we don’t understand a thing. We think the glory is in the withholding, the caution, politeness, acceptance, boundaries.

But none of those places hold truth. And none of them teach us to fly.

Caution is a weighted thing and it puts you on the bench to watch the game.

Caution keeps you seated nervously on the cliff’s edge viewing everything you fear below, counting all the reasons that a leap would ruin you, explaining all the ways it could go badly, telling stories of how to live with planning and steadfastness without ever being foolish.

At the end of the game, you’ll see that it was you being foolish.

Because everything that ever mattered lived in the leap; that one moment of taking a breath and trusting in the wind to carry you, seeing suddenly that letting go was everything – it was always the point of your existence and the reason for your story.
