Happy Monday Friends!
I want to talk a little bit about fear today and the concept that we are all special and have a purpose for our lives. The past year has been different and seriously scary for so many of us. We’ve been navigating a global pandemic for over a year. Many of us have lost loved ones and are faced with grief. Many of us are feeling lost. We’ve been in a waiting period where normal life has been on hold. The energy is shifting and there are opportunities for us to make big leaps forward right now.
There has been a layer of collective fear that has impacted us all. This fear is starting to lift as vaccines are available and drugs like monoclonal antibodies are shown to be effective in treating Covid-19, and even more importantly, more and more of us are making choices every day to choose love instead of fear. As our fear lifts, we begin to perceive things differently.
The best antidote for fear is love. This is a good time to check in with yourself. Allow love into your heart and listen for your next step. If you know your next step, be grateful and gather the courage to go do it! If you need help, courage, or kindness, reach out to a friend or family member who loves you. Tell them you know your next step and ask for some encouragement and accountability.
If you feel lost and scared, know that you are not alone. You can gently move forward today by taking two to five minutes to breathe and center yourself. Try to check in with yourself. Meditate. Go inward and be quiet. It may be uncomfortable at first, but the silence will guide you. Be patient with yourself. Try to be as kind to yourself as you would be with a dear friend.
Your job right now is to listen to your heart and follow the nudges. Ask yourself: Where can I align with love and be of service? It may be something as simple as smiling at someone, calling a friend who has been having a rough time, or reconnecting with a loved one. Every time we lovingly extend ourselves, we contribute to more love and less fear. Being of service takes away our focus on ourselves and can help us to feel good by doing something for someone else! That, my dear, is building your attitudinal muscles. Building attitudinal muscles is like weight lifting for your body, but the focus is on your mind. Choosing love over fear will strengthen your attitudinal muscles and be a huge game changer in your life.
Be willing to extend yourself with love in the world as you gather trust that the doors that are meant to be opened will be shown to you. There is no need to worry about where or when the doors will open. It is your job to extend love and to have faith and trust that you are guided on your path. The “yesses” will come in divine timing. Be patient and kind with yourself and others. See the “No’s” as something that is not right at this time for you. See the “Yesses” as stepping stones. Follow the the stepping stones. A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Meditate in the morning and ask for guidance on your next step. In every moment we can choose love over fear.
The blessings available to you reach farther than the depths of the deep blue sea. Your only job today is to trust that you are being guided. All of the challenges in your life are opportunities to see things differently. As you see things differently, you become aware of your true purpose and the sacredness of the gift of your life. That is the true meaning of being a miracle worker. You see other’s divinity. You feel your own divinity. The magic happens when your divinity connects with their divinity. Our world needs to remember and embrace our divinity. Our world needs us to see the good in each other and to extend loving kindness to each other.
The Course in Miracles teaches that You are a child of God. You are special. And, you are no more special than anyone else. No one is more special than you. You are special and not any more special than anyone else. There is so much freedom and release available to you from this concept that you are special and you are not special. Remind yourself when needed. And trust that you are doing the best that you can do. As you extend love, your resiliency and strength is becoming fortified with sacred alignment. Life is good and so are you!!!
May you feel angels pushing you from behind today, bringing ease into your next steps as you gently move forward.
