It’s Time to Take Our Power Back!

I’m sure a lots of you have heard about the changing energies we are experiencing.  As a contributing author, I would like to share with you a portion of my chapter titled “It’s Time to Take Our Power Back” from the book “R*eve*olution – The Return of the Divine Feminine” – compiled by Denye Robbins.  It’s comprised of 40 global women leaders who share their stories of passion, purpose, love and service.

We are coming out of an era of fear, force, control, suppression and separateness; and we are entering the era of love, flow, letting go, allowing and unification.  We are leaving the era of trusting the external: governments, systems, money, authority and television; and we are entering the era of trusting the internal: ourselves, our inner guidance systems, our spirits, our hearts and our wisdom.

May I share with you that it is not governments who govern.  It is you who governs.  It is not money that is your resource.  It is you who is your resource.  It is not laws that guide you.  It is your spirit that guides you. It is not some agency that is your authority.  It is your heart that is your authority.  It is not television but your wisdom that is the source of quality knowledge.  It is all in the power of your spirit!

If you think that nothing is what it seems, that’s because it isn’t.  We have allowed doctors to be the authority on our health, yet it is you and only you who can heal yourself.  We look to change things on the outside, yet the only place we can change things is on our inside.  We have created computers to have less paper and more time, yet we have more paper and less time.  We look to money to solve our problems and look to love as the source of all problems, yet it is love that sustains and heals us, not money.  We spent our life accumulating material possessions at the expense of foregoing valuable experiences, yet we get to take with us when we die only our experiences and none of our possessions.  We have substituted caring for being politically correct.  We have created quick fixes and more problems.  We are the country of most freedoms and yet we incarcerate the most people of all countries.  We preserve our food to last longer, yet we have shortened our health.  In a world where Twinkie has come to outlive us, we live poorly and die well; well preserved, that is.  We have created drugs to not feel, yet we hurt more.  We have created more laws and less responsibility.  We have rejected nature because of its imperfections, and with our perfect chemicals we have created imbalances that are destroying us, failing to realize that we are not above but rather a part of nature.

We keep lowering our educational standards to make ourselves look better instead of increasing our standards and teaching our youth more.  We want to change the world, and the only thing we can change is ourselves.  We start wars trying to teach peace.  We have big healthcare systems and more sick people.  We spend millions of dollars on medical research and have no cures.  We have fast means of communication, fax machines and mobile phones, and no time to talk to our kids.  We have money and no value.  We have food and no nourishment.  We have medicine and no health.  We have more jails and less functioning families.  We have more information and less sense.  Isn’t it maybe time for change?  Well, it isn’t government who is going to change things.  We are!  You and I!

So, how do we change things?  It has to start with each one of us individually.  The only thing we can change is ourselves.  Understand that we can’t fully move into the new energies of love, personal power, flow, oneness and allowing until we release the old energies we’ve been living; fear, force, control, suppression and separateness.  We carry the old energies in our unresolved experiences.  So long as we carry them in our spiritual energy, we keep creating with them.  In order to release them, we must heal and integrate our unresolved experiences.  Only then can we create something different.

Relax, it’s not up to us to figure out the “How”


Recently I was reminded of a little truth that gave me big peace of mind.  It is not up to us to figure out the “how”.  Our spirit and the universe always guides us to help us achieve our soul’s aspirations.  It is up to us to listen and follow the guidance.  If we are trying to control the “how” we’re missing the boat because the more we try to control, the more we strangle life in the process and cheat ourselves out of the opportunities designed to help us achieve our soul’s desires.  I know it is easier said than done.  I personally have lost count of the number of times I have done just that – tried to control the “how”, often wondering in frustration why things weren’t working the way I thought they should.

An image comes to mind of my dad swimming in a public pool with my brother who at the time was maybe around 5 years old.  My brother not knowing how to swim and somewhat afraid of the water hung tight around my dad’s neck for the ride of his life.  As my dad tried to swim and submerged himself more into the water, my brother tightened his grip around my dad’s neck.  As my brother held on tighter and tighter it became harder and harder for my dad to swim until eventually my dad,being choked by my brother, started going under.   This in turn caused my brother to choke my dad even harder.  Luckily for the lifeguard who picked up on the seriousness of the situation and came to the rescue while everyone else thought that my dad and my brother were just playing and providing entertainment for everyone.

Well, ’tis the same with life.  How tight is your grip?

I for one have recently published my book “Meeting My Twin Flame”, a personal memoir about my spiritual awakening, a journey my spirit and the universe took me on which I couldn’t have possibly dreamed up in a million years.  I do remember setting some goals, however, prior to my journey.  I am now realizing how miniscual my goals were in comparison to what I received throughout this profound journey; my soul’s true passion and expression.

By the way my book is now available in a variety of ebook formats on www.smashwords.com at http://www.smashwords.com/b/319420 or in kindle format on www.amazon.com.

How much peace of mind would you have if you knew that your spirit and the universe would figure out the “how to” for you?  All you would have to do is listen and follow.  And what would you dare to do if you knew that your spirit and the universe had your back all the time?

Be open to everything and attached to nothing…

How do we achieve such spiritual freedom and bliss to be open to everything and attached to nothing?  What are attachments anyway and why do we have them?

Attachments are things we can’t do without or have a difficult time letting go.  For example, we can be attached to a certain outcome, in which case we are attached to a certain expectation.  We could be attached to shopping or to being in relationship.  We could be attached to having a routine or to having drama in our life.  We could be attached to an idea, the idea that everything must be in order before we can move on to what we really want to do, for example.  We could be virtually attached to just about anything.  Much like the toddler who is attached to his blanket, we seek safety in our attachments.  Addictions are no more than very obvious and severe attachments.

It is in our state of separateness we seem to need attachments.  By “state of separateness” I mean the space we live in where we are separated or disconnected from spirit, our source and the spiritual mother womb.  Being connected with source is the place where we know we are taken care of, we are safe, we are loved and abundance is ever present.  When we are in this space of being connected to source we feel no worries and no fear.  Thus it is in the space of disconnect where we are so desperate to hold onto something, … anything and we have the need for attachments and addictions.

We have entered the era where we are moving away from being separate and disconnected to being connected and united with source and each other.  We are moving away from fear and toward love.  We are moving away from suppression and toward self-expression.  But how does one as an individual move from the place of feeling disconnected to feeling connected and loved?  How do we move away from being attached to things?  How do we move away from our addictions?

First it would help to understand that whenever we experience a trauma, particularly pain, emotional, physical or mental we disconnect from a piece of ourselves.  The more we spiritually heal such traumas and pain, including past life, the more we re-connect with ourselves and source.  It is in the combination of spiritual healing and growth that we can achieve the connection we desire and the spiritual freedom of being open to everything and attached to nothing.

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places..

Looking for Love in all the Wrong Places, Dear Spirit of Mine.

I searched the world.

I searched for years to find my guy,

the one and only love of mine,

like you dear Spirit of mine,

unconditionally and always with the best for me in mind.

I looked for the guy who’d be my knight and shining armor,

my hero, my dragon slayer,

who’d protect me come rain or shine,

like you dear Spirit of mine.

I looked across the ocean miles,

I looked everywhere,

for the guy whom I could count on, trust and who would care.

I even searched in the darkest of places to find him,

the one and only love of mine.

Surely, I thought, he must be there somewhere hidden in the dark of the darkest of corners,

since I couldn’t find him in the bright of shine.

I searched everywhere for the guy who’d love me,

like you dear Spirit of mine.

It was you I trusted and I knew you’d help me find my guy.

I was growing desperate to find the guy who’d love me,

like you dear Spirit of mine.

I finally asked you for help and you agreed to help me find that guy.

You promised and I still could not see,

the love that only you had for me.

It was then that you made me look in the darkest of hearts and I finally saw,

that which there was not,

the love I’d been looking for.

Without it I was lost.

So for the longest time I wouldn’t dare see it not.

You had me again search in the darkest of hearts so that I could finally see,

see what there was not.

It was in the reflection of an empty heart that I finally saw the substance in mine.

I had to see first what there was not, in order to see,

what there was within me, my Spirit, within me.

It was then that I realized, it was you I’d been looking for all this time,

dear Spirit of mine.

You were the one who loved me,

you were my guy.

You were my knight in shining armor, my hero, my protector came rain or shine.

You were the one who loved me unconditionally all this time.

It was you I counted on and trusted, dear Spirit of mine.

Especially in my weakest of moments, you were the one who always cared

and had my best interest in mind.

I was looking for love in all the wrong hearts, when all along you were inside of mine.

You, dear Spirit, you were the true essence of me,

I so desperately needed to find.
