And therein lies their test. A test of perceptions: of what to focus on, of what to believe in, in spite of appearances."
YOU, Sarah, are divine -
When I re-read the final lines of this inspiration I found myself repeating the last several lines, "And therein lies their test. A test of perceptions: of what to focus on, of what to believe in, in spite of appearances. YOU (insert your name here) are divine."
Being alive at this time in history is quite miraculous. The advances of technology, health, and human development are astounding. The rich lessons we learn during our time on Earth are revealed in cosmic and strategic ways. As the Universe suggests, it truly is our perception that allows us to invest in lack, or invest in the plenty of experience.
I know that I have had experiences throughout my life that will possess an eternal question mark, but after expressing a willingness to grow and learn, I find myself drawn towards the divinity of truly living and loving. Our willingness to 'put ourselves out there' can be life taking or life giving. A great philosopher shared, that where attention goes, energy flows.
As 2015 comes to a close this week, maybe instead of setting a resolution, you can take inventory into all of the 'perceptions' that you are personally investing time and energy in? If your go to line is "Life is hard and never works out for me," you can be sure that the Universe will match your perception and offer you life experiences that fall into these parameters. How would your life review change if you didn't look at your experiences as 'losses,' rather as 'lessons?' What if in the midst of your confusion you felt a grounded nature that connected you back into the powerful essence of divine love? Guess what, you are divine love?! Claim it sweetest hearts!!! How can you bring 2015 to a close with this energy as you welcome in the energy of 2016?
As I recently stood atop the Space Needle in Seattle, I tapped into the energy of the direction of North. In the Lakota Indian tradition, the direction of the North is associated with the "harsh winds of winter. If we have the ability to face these harsh winds, we will have learned patience and endurance. The north represents the trials we must undergo for growth and cleansing." Maybe this past year has left you with many trials in your heart, but can you harness that energy and perceive it as stamina for what's to come?
When the day is done and the fog of confusion has left your thinking mind, where do you stand in relationship to your perceptions of life? May you offer yourself space for exploration and compassion as you inquiry of this energy in your life. And don't forget to remember your divine nature as you begin this inquiry! YOU my dear are divine!
May You Sweetly Seek:)
