i think someone stole my password!

So, I was speaking to your Heart today. Yesterday, too. Oh, you didn’t know? Actually, we talk a lot. Probably every day, I’d guess. And, I have to say, there is a lot going on in there.

Huh. You didn’t know, hey? Truthfully, I can’t say as I’m too too surprised you didn’t know. I wouldn’t say most people don’t know that I speak to their Heart, but pretty close to most people don’t know. I mean, it does make me smile a bit, on account of how close I am with your Heart. But, it’s ok. It doesn’t bother me. I get why you don’t know. Don’t worry, it’s not like I’m going to stop anytime soon. Promise.

What do we talk about? Gosh, everything. Yeah. I’d say pretty much everything. I see that look on your face; you don’t have to be spooked that I know so much. I never talk about it with anyone else. Just your Heart.

Truth be told, you might be pretty surprised how similar the conversations are that I have. Like, it kinda doesn’t really matter whose Heart I happen to be speaking with, the stories are really a lot alike. Doesn’t matter from where, how old, man or woman, how rich or poor; I guess it’s because the Heart doesn’t see, it just feels. That was definitely something I learned along the way. I learn a lot, actually. I think both me and your Heart learn a lot every time we speak. And, like I said, we speak all the time.

Umm, the reason I wanted to share this with you is to help you. To let you know that I’m there for your Heart. I’ve always been there for your Heart. No matter what. Even if you didn’t know that I was close to your Heart. Or, maybe you kinda knew, like, you felt it sometimes but maybe didn’t know what it was. That was us; me and your Heart. We’re usually just trying to get your attention.

Why are we trying to get your attention? Oh. Pretty simple, I think. You need our help. We just want to help. We have a lot to give. Infinitely a lot to give, actually. Like, til forever. And, we don’t want anything in return. It just makes us really happy when you listen to us. That’s way more than enough for us. But, it’s ok when you ignore us, too. We’re not going anywhere.

Listen, not to sound like a couple of know-it-alls, but your Heart and I have the skinny on everything about you. In a manner of speaking, a pretty important part of our job to know all that stuff. What makes us chuckle is when you don’t really let us do our job. Oh oh, the reason it makes us chuckle is because you gave us this job. Mind kinda blown? Then we’re right on track. Side note – if we had it a bit more our way, we’d move that mind of yours a little more further to the middle of bus and ask it to be a bit more quiet.

We know not everything isn’t so copacetic. Heck, we know that a fair amount of things aren’t so copacetic. Like I mentioned, most people have a lot of the same stories. We, definitely, don’t downplay any of it because we Love everyone; we really do. We know that what’s going on for you, is what’s going on for YOU, regardless of what’s going on for anyone else. But, believe you us, I can tell you lots of people didn’t expect their lives to be where they are right now. Lots of people didn’t expect to have gone through the pain they’ve gone through. Lots of people didn’t expect to feel as uncertain about themselves right now. But, I tell you with certainty, your Heart and I, we care about you more than you could ever know. Same with the next person and the next person and the next person.

Thing is, like I was saying, for this all to really work out, you need to let us do our job. You did give it to us, after all. Not to sound totally arrogant, but it’s really in your best interest to let us do what we do. I say with no reservations, nothing is more powerful than me and your Heart. And, by “more powerful”, I mean more compassionate, more caring and more Loving. I don’t say that because we’re full of ourselves, it’s because we’re full of you. We’ve done this a lot and we just keep getting stronger. We’ve been here before. And, we’re going to be here after.

It’s just….you have to let go a bit. You have to let us have a bit more control. I know that scares you (your Heart and I talk about it all the time), but that’s really the deal. You have to let us do our job. The challenge is that most people think it’s all about them. And, it is. But, it’s really all about us. How it works in your favour is that we’re all about you. Does that make sense? Like, we just want you to have everything you ever dreamed of. And, we know you want that, too. But the thing is, we’ve got way more pull than you. So, let us do the pulling instead of pushing us away.

I’m really getting long-winded here; the[heart]movement is gonna be cheesed with me. I just want you to know that I’m here for you. Your Heart is here for you, too. Open up to us a bit more when you can. Listen to us a bit more when you can. I promise we’re not going to steer you in the wrong direction. And, eventually, when you let us take the wheel, you’re going to really enjoy the ride. We’ve got you, all the way.

Your truly (really truly). Lots of Love.

The Universe

Be Love

 

 

 

 

leg or breast?

I was having a conversation with a colleague this past week about what it is to live from the Heart. And, by ‘conversation’, I kinda mean I may have been on a soapbox and they may have been just looking at me sideways. Well, kinda sideways.

What I learned from that soapbox is this; there’s no real way to explain how to live from your Heart.

It’s a practice that’s infinite. To contextualize living from the Heart would be like writing a manual for every single scenario you could ever encounter in life. Who could even write all of that? And, gosh, who would even read all of it?

Living from your Heart is all feeling. Example (we’ve all done this one); you need to address some open-ended matter in your life. You’ve played out the scenario a dozen times in your head before you’ve gone in and you figured you’ve got your side down pat. You’ve rehearsed it, you’ve written it down, maybe you even tried to Google it? You are “prepared”. But then, as soon as you’re actually in the situation, all goes to shit. Not ‘shit’ in necessarily a bad way, just in the way that nothing really went as you thought you’d planned out.

Why? Because nine times out of nine, when we try to plan things of the Heart, we do it with our head. And, when you don’t use the right tools for the right job, you’re probably not going to build what you’d intended. It’d be like training for a marathon by reading books about running. It just doesn’t work that way. You want to be a runner? Run! Feel the pavement under your feet, feel the strain in your muscles and feel the air in your chest.

Living from the Heart is no different; you have to feel it. And, in truth, it takes a lot of practice. Step one is to just introduce the thought of it into your Heart. From there on out, it’s school. Without doubt, you’re going to get it wrong along the way. How you’ll know? You’ll feel shitty about whatever it is; you’ll feel shitty about yourself – like, you’ll know you could have done better. Guilt can be a great barometer, but only if you promise yourself not to hang onto it. Screw up, acknowledge it, forgive yourself and move on to the next one. Lather, rinse, repeat. “When you “lose”, don’t lose the lesson”, as the shampoo-less Dalai Lama would guide.

The other challenge is the fear. There’s a lot of fear that goes with this philosophy of life. You will be an odd duck doing this kind of thing. People won’t necessarily call you weird, but they may think it. Not that it mattered, but I learned that someone I knew called this website “stupid”. And hey, maybe it is? For that person, it was stupid and that’s ok. For a brief moment, I thought they were stupid. I think I’m decently past the fear; for the most part. There are, for shoer, times when I retreat into my shell because of it or times where I try to use my head for a task that clearly needs my Heart. But to say I’ve got this all figured out would be the biggest lie I could tell myself. I don’t have it figured out. But, I’m trying.

And, that’s really what you do; you try. I don’t think anyone can tell anyone else how to do this. You just have to give it a go. And then give it another go. And then another. Until it becomes second nature to keep doing it no matter how many times you stumble or feel scared or get made fun of or don’t fit in. When you start to get that feeling that you’re fitting in with yourself, that you’re fitting in with who you really are, you know you’re on the right path.

You’re a good person. No one was put here to not be a good person. So, quit being a big chicken and strut your stuff. J

Be Love.

 

 

 

stupid Jerry Maguire actually had something there :)

There’s not a whole lot I know for sure. But, this I do:

Love will complete your life.

The Universe does two things; it supports your evolution and it will let you choose. The reason this is our reality here is exactly because of Love. Our lives are an all-encompassing, never-ending opportunity for Love. It is what your growth, my growth, everyone’s growth is. This growth is a not a given. It is, as the Universe intends, a choice.

Sure, everyone will undergo a little bit of evolution simply as a function of being alive. It’s a product of the experiences you have. We go through life, experience upon experience upon experience – that is the Universe supporting your evolution. Integral to that support, is what you want to do with it. What decision you want to make about the experiences you are given.

The ability to choose your evolution into Love is what makes it so powerful, so meaningful. Anything that comes as an automatic or without option just can’t have the same impact. Choosing Love is what invariably makes you bigger.

Do we come into this world as Love? Yes. Is that the path we all take? No. There is ethereal element of your being that is Love. It will always be Love no matter what. It is, in effect, the ever-open doorway that enables you have the choice to take a path of Love through your Earthly life; to bridge the gap toward your higher self. And, it is a function of the experience you bring into your life and what it does to you and what you want to do with it.

Understanding that Love will complete your life is as much an end as it is a beginning. It is end to the place that you were in; it is a transition from one level of your being to a higher one. What was important will be no longer. What provided meaning will now be fleeting. It’s not that you necessarily change, it’s that you make the decision to become bigger. You experience growth by growing from experience. By making this choice, you acknowledge that your real self is the self that wants to give its Heart to Love.

And, as there is an end, there is a beginning. The beginning of a higher place of being. The beginning of the bigger version of you. The beginning to share Love, unconditionally, and have Love shared with you. It is the ultimate beginning.

Love will complete your life. You are only stronger for it. Sharing the true Love of your Heart carries the greatest strength for it is what the Universe supports in you. There is nothing more powerful. There is no greater meaning. To feel the connection from this Love is the experience of the Universe. And, the Universe is the biggest thing ever, which makes Love, also, the biggest thing ever.

Love big.

Be Love.

thankshearting

I give thanks to my Heart.

I give thanks to this part of my being and my soul, no bigger than my fist, that possesses more power than the strongest locomotive, more volume than the loudest clap of thunder, more resilience than the sun that climbs into the sky every day and more light than the brightest star in the galaxy.

I give thanks that my Heart carries me when I need it, bears the burden for others when their own cannot and is forever open to those it is connected to.

I give thanks that my Heart receives the tough times in life not as challenges that have befallen me but as challenges to better me. I am grateful that my Heart receives these challenges as opportunities to prove to myself how big it is.

I give thanks that my Heart receives the great times in life not as individual victories for just me but also as a victory to share with the Hearts that I hold in mine.

I give thanks that my Heart knows who I truly am even when I don’t. I give thanks that it guides me down my true path of Love in those times that I falter; in those times when my eyes do not see what my Heart does.

I give thanks that my Heart desires to be full not for itself but to fill those which are dear to it.

I give thanks that my Heart is strong but gentle.

I am grateful that my Heart knows no boundaries. I am grateful that it knows I can be better and bigger than each day before the last and that my growth is only governed by the days in the Universe.

I give thanks that my Heart feels compassion.

I give thanks that my Heart believes in me. I give thanks that even when I don’t believe in myself it is there telling me to trust it and that for those uncertainties I don’t understand, it does. It will guide me through.

I give thanks that my Heart knows what is real. I give thanks that it knows what Love is.

I give thanks to my Heart.

Be Love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

cheaters never win….or do they?

“You do not lose your demons, but rather you learn to live above them.”

Our physical reality operates in balance – day, night; loud, quiet; hot, cold; good and evil. It is a reflection of everything.

Who you are, that which makes you, You, is also an expression of this balance. Your physical reality strives to maintain its equilibrium. It knows only those parameters and how to operate within them. In a Universe that only supports your ever-awakening consciousness, what sense does it make to have this constant regression to the mean to contend with; to have both that which you want and that which you don’t want in your life?

Conceptually, the goal is to manifest a life of peace and joy – both from within outward and from out inward. Your physical self will always exist in an environment of balance. The physical shell you inhabit, even that which encompasses a multitude of beauty; kindness, compassion, love; will still play by the rules of balance. When you start to bend the rules, that is, when you stop relying upon your physical self to defeat your demons and start trusting in your higher self, is when you learn to live above those demons.

Subscribing to a pick-and-choose philosophy, your physical self needs the challenges we experience throughout life; it is part of the maintenance of balance – the parameters it subscribes to. It’s, perhaps, counterintuitive, but only if viewed from a perspective of physical reality, and only physical reality.

Your higher self needs those demons, too. For reason that, without experiencing the demons in the physical realm, we may never seek out our higher being. Stepping outside of your self is what acts to silence the demons. Challenging their physical existence with the very same physical existence, by that I mean, the age old ‘good versus evil’ doesn’t really solve anything. Just because you shout louder than someone else that’s already shouting, doesn’t get rid of their shouting, does it? Challenging the existence of those demons with something that doesn’t operate on the same plane of existence is what truly quiets all which is not You.

Your higher self operates on an advanced frequency relative to that which you experience in your physical life. The solution is not to bring the higher frequency down to the lower frequency, but rather to bring the lower frequency up to the higher one. It is where it cannot exist.

We can all experience and master the kindness and compassion and love defined by this physical world; all incredibly beautiful and integral to the evolution of who we are. But, when you call upon the kindness and compassion and Love from the higher version of you, is when the demons are silenced. It is when you have learned to live above them.

Your physical self needs your higher self; they are intertwined. But, your higher self doesn’t operate on balance; it does not subscribe to the parameters of equilibrium and so it can cheat in the physical world; it can bend the rules. It exists on a plane that supercedes what we know to be here. And, it is always available to you. It is available to you by connecting with it; by developing a relationship with your Heart, by channeling it through meditation, communicating through the medium of prayer – there is no finite list of how to access your higher being.

You are always your higher self; it is always a resource for all that you encounter in this physical realm. Accessing it will only strengthen the presence of light and Love that you represent in this plane; it will strengthen your ability to live beyond the parameters established in this physical space. After all, like they say, “’rules were made to be broken”.

Be Love.
