.....bringing life to light....

What Gift do I Bring?"
The gift we each bring is unique and unlike any other. It's a one-of a kind gift, which can never even in a million millennia be re-created. The challenge, however, can sometimes lie in figuring out how to get the gift opened! God was very creative in this endeavor because It wrapped this gift in an amazing package-your consciousness! It's true. The gift you have brought to share with your family of the earth lies in who you are. Who you are- or who you believe yourself to be- is the gift you bring. Can you feel the delight of this delicious truth? You are a gift to humankind and the planet, tightly wrapped and waiting to be opened.
Once we become conscious of the fact that we are on a mission to reveal this gift to the world, we might wonder where and how we begin to unwrap it. There is so much "stuff" to remove before we get to the gift itself! In many cases, I believe we already know what lies within the unwrapped gift of our being. We are just uncertain and fearful that if and when we do reveal it to the world, it may not be well received. Let's face it, there is nothing worse than giving a gift that isn't appreciated and welcomed, right? (That's one of the "bows of belief" we need to remove.) So, we spend a good amount of our life looking at the wrapping around the gift , and use the excuse that there's so much stuff wrapped around it that it would be easier to leave it unopened. Often, there is so much needless shame wrapped around the gift we are that we hold back on giving of our authentic self to anyone. Don't hold back on giving what you have come to share. The gift of you really is quite unique, and that is what makes it one-derful.

......the clock strikes....

..."The clock strikes midnight....welcomed hugs from mi favorites.....I'm 27 finally. What can I say, I don't feel any different. But all ready know that things have been different internally. I've been more contemplative on life.

All I know is that I've been putting into practice "The Power of Now." Realizing there's more to life than what I've been worried about past years. Knowing that life happens when you aren't always analyzing it. Knowing that I can be more than people expect me to be. Knowing I am capable of doing what I always dreamed of.

Lately, the world, through my eyes, have been more beautiful and amazing than usual. I have faith that my life will turn out the way it's supposed to. All I have to do, is live it and be present.

Those meant to be in my life will be there. For those who aren't, always have a lesson to teach me, to become the person that I am today. cheers to the universe......" !here, here!

You are Lovable

Just because people haven't been there for you, just because certain people haven't been able to show love for you in ways that worked, just because relationships have failed or gone sour does not mean that you're unlovable. You've had lessons to learn. Sometimes, those lessons have hurt. Let go of the pain. Open your heart to love. You are lovable. You are loved.

Anxiety is often our first reaction to conflict, problems, or even our own fears. In those moments, detaching and getting peaceful may seem disloyal or apathetic. We think: If I really care, I'll worry; if this is really important to me, I must stay upset. We convince ourselves that outcomes will be positively affected by the amount of time we spend worrying.
Our best problem-solving resource is peace. Solutions arise easily and naturally out of a peaceful state. Often, fear and anxiety block solutions. Anxiety gives power to the power, not the solution. It does not help to harbor turmoil. It does not help.
Peace is available if we choose it. In spite of chaos and unsolved problems around us, all is well. Things will work out. We can surround ourselves with the resources of the Universe: water, earth, a sunset, a walk, a prayer, a friend. We can relax and let ourselves feel peace.

Letting Go of Confusion
Sometimes, the way is not clear. Our minds get clouded, confused. We aren't certain what our next step should be, what it will look life, what direction we are headed. That is the time to stop, ask for guidance, and rest. That is the time to let go of Fear. Wait. Feel the confusion and chaos, then let it go. The path will show itself. The next step shall be revealed. We don't have to know now. We will know in time. Trust that. Let go and trust.
