Greetings to 2015 and all of my lovely readers. I write swaddled with a Mexican blanket I purchased on a recent holiday to rural Mexico as I look out the window to feet of snow with more coming down by the second.
I’m going to keep it short and sweet to say hello to this new year and greet you during the depths of darkness this winter. I received an email with a more extended version of this writing from Lee Harris, a world renown spiritual channeler. I know it sounds crazy but the man seems very “in touch.” I have yet to have a personal experience with him but I have found his writings very interesting and inspiring.
Have you ever met someone that knew something about you that is literally impossible for them to have known about without you telling them? Have you ever met someone who seemed somehow connected to the heavens or some sort of higher intelligence? I might be going off the deep end for some of you, but the man is worth checking out!
Below is an excerpt from some of his writing that circulated through the holidays. I thought this would be a good time to share the piece, now that we can actually listen to each other and pay attention, after all the holiday hoopla. I think goals can be really helpful for us to accomplish our dreams, big and small. I believe in setting intentions and manifestations, rather than being fixed on the outcome. Practicing this un-attachment of the outcome is the practice of yoga. That doesn’t mean you sit around and eat crumpets not worrying about your health. The difference is your intention to the ACTION, not the RESULT.
Now that it is February and many of you might be focusing on what you want to accomplish/attract/create/do in 2015, consider the action that you can take to make that happen. Perhaps trust the right result will happen if the action comes from the right intention.
One of the big takeaways from Harris’s piece is the compassion for self. Somehow the resolutions usually seem to be tangled in judgement for the self, rather than compassion and acceptance. How compassionate can you be…toward yourself?
The beauty that seems so clear in others, in nature, and in things all around us… can you feel the beauty within yourself?
As a world we are in a force of change that asks you to flow with it.As an individual you are in a force of change that asks you to find rebirth within it and the loss of old identity.This takes courage, and faith that you will be safe without your old ways.Can you be ready to stop seeing yourself as ‘blocked’, ‘resistant’, not yet ‘there’.To let go of these old ideas, aims and ways of pushing yourself to grow?And instead accept that wherever you find yourself today, it needs NO judgement for judgement will only make you feel worse. MUCH worse, and perhaps that is the spiral you are used to.A downward one.Can you accept that where you find yourself today only requires great compassion, from you, towards you.Today needs you to be as kind to yourself as you would be to a friend who was struggling.So take your foot off the accelerator. Stop buying into the stress, the speed or the depression of others as anything you need to swallow whole and thus also become in yourself.And know we are ALL in this together, navigating a time we have never seen like this on Earth.An intensity we have not yet been through.And right now, these pulses are electrifying all of us to keep on rising, keep on clearing and integrating in our bodies and our souls, all we have been learning over the past years.Sometimes it’s a messy act, this thing of being human.Spirit knows this, and loves you anyway.Can you love yourself that much, despite how you are feeling?Can you let the layers of human judgment and suppression we have all absorbed and identified with, fall away. Even if it looks and feels messy?Because THERE lies the key.Loving yourself through these rapid releases. Even the ones that are disorientating you the most.There lies the peace that we can all learn to find at the bottom of the ocean.For once we accept how different it seems, we start to realise how safe and connected it all is.You are very loved.Never forget that and you will never forget to love.And then, love will be the fuel that keeps you warm in the world.Just as you will keep its flame alive wherever you go.
