Ahhhhhh, a moment of self-Love in uncertain times. A moment to Love with the deepest part of you. A moment to safely let your guard down. How do you handle opportunities to love? Knowing that everything emanates from a deep need to love and be loved, how does Love show up in your life?
Love calls me to be the very highest version of myself in the best of times in order for me recognize Love when I am blinded by grief, pain, uncertainty or disappointment.
Love is deep and profound. Love catapults me to conscious awareness in the present moment. Love demands that I live, move and breathe from the deepest place within me. As a matter of fact, I consider each new morning an opportunity to expand Love. An opportunity to expand my self-Love in order to share Love with others.
I embrace the Love opportunities that show up in unexpected ways and at unexpected times. I am deeply grateful for the times I am most uncomfortable and called to action. These are the times I am catapulted to deep abiding prayer, gratitude and unconditional Love both of self and others.
Dwell in the present moment. This is where joy, happiness and Love live. Experiencing life on life’s terms in a peaceful way is a most essential opportunity to Love. Especially at the present time.
As a Licensed Spiritual Practitioner, I am grateful to be called to Love and support myself, individuals, families, communities, our country, the universe. I am especially grateful to be called to Love in action and serve in ways that are both comfortable and that I have not experienced before.
I moved to Albuquerque as a direct result of Hurricane Katrina. Broken hearted, I moved through the next several years learning to reconnect with my essence, my mind, my heart, my soul and my life’s purpose. As I embrace life on life’s terms in the present moment with a filter of Love and deep appreciation, I liken my recent uneasy feelings about our current situation to the day I evacuated my home in New Orleans almost 15 years ago. Amazing how feelings of insecurity surface and how prayer and deep Love release those embedded feelings. Love prevails. Love always prevails. My purpose during our present time of uncertainty is to be open, grounded and a conduit of Love.
Knowing we are called here by Divine Appointment, I invite you to join me in a moment of peaceful quiet. I invite you to take a healing breath and release your present thoughts, allow yourself a moment of luscious silence. No thoughts of the past, no thoughts of the future, only you breathing in this most precious moment. Intend peace and Love to bloom right here and now. Create a safe place to feel. All feelings are welcome. You are surrounded in the energy of unconditional love and light. Take as much time as you need.
The simple act of intentionally creating a pause, acknowledges humanness, frailty, strength, fear of the unknown and encourages embracing your authentic feelings in an atmosphere of Love and moving through.
Please place your hand over your heart and connect deeply with the incredible, insightful, strong, kind, compassionate, loving being of light that you are. Release everything that is not serving your highest and best in this moment. Know that letting go results in personal freedom and freedom is the perfect path to unconditional self-Love. Fear is the inability to recognize Love. Love dissolves fear the way light dissolves darkness. All barriers are dissolved. All mental limitations are lifted. In the depths of this quiet lies your soul, waiting to be Loved, longing to be embraced.
Take the Love within you and spread it around like glitter. Allow it to stick to everything. Know that you are seen, Loved and recognized. You are whole, perfect and complete in this moment. You are not separate as you take one forward step at a time on your continued journey to Love to your capacity.
Feel the Love and support of your fellow travelers, myself included. Know that I am as close as placing your hand over your heart.
With Love and deep appreciation,
