Perception

Grief in its many forms makes its way into your life on occasion.  Grief creates the opportunity to cleanse your perception and make way for the pureness of heart and expansion of your spirit.  Any and all old outworn energy and programming must fall away for the new and transformed version of you to emerge through the experiences you have along your journey, including grief.  There is no other way to evolve and expand, which is what you are here to do.

The filter you use to process your experiences changes as you progress making your heart expand.  This filter is created by your ongoing experiences, and each experience you have layers on top of the next; that is unless you transform, heal, and grow from each one independently.  This is important because the filter you use is everything to your journey.  Nothing can expand in a field of old, outworn energy and opinions.  The intention of your heart and soul is to grow, expand, and evolve.  Without cleansing your filter on an ongoing basis you can shrink and settle into despair.

Your filter is used to create your perception.  You must never stop learning, experiencing, and evolving.  This is what your journey is all about, but you must keep your filter clean and restored whenever necessary.  Nothing is more important than an increasing awareness of your understanding of each experience you have.  To continue to layer over your filter is to diminish its effectiveness and cloud your perceptions which diminishes the clarity you must hold within your being.

Your life’s journey and its meaning cannot flow without the careful and contemplated healing and loving compartmentalizing of your experience.  After all, it is your spirit that is enriched through your journey.  The enrichment of who you are becoming through the filter of your life is the key to your evolution.  Regret, indecision, complacency, disregard, and sadness are all disfigurement of your filter.  Your past experiences, if not healed, cleansed, and the pain removed with love and understanding, will cloud your filter.  If this is not properly cared for it will clog your journey and stop your evolution.

Some signs to look for that reveal you have a distorted filter is when you will become bored, listless, needing constant stimulation, and leaning on others for their help, attention, and consolation.  This is when you become blinded by your filter and stop living your life through your heart and live vicariously through others.  Also, you feel that you have no control over your life and others can easily manipulate you into being whomever they want you to be and think whatever they want you to think.

The good news is that recognizing this in-cognizance will create a ‘crack’ in your filter that will allow grace to pour into your being and start to repair that which was lost in your misinterpretation of the truth, if this is your intention.  Being a part of the goodness life holds is only seen through a clear, loving, and healthy filter.  You must first be able to ‘see’ it before you can take part in it.

The seeds from your past properly cared for and revised with love will plant loving expression in the future.  Your heart is a sun, and your experiences given love from your heart will cleanse your filter and make your journey one of loving expression.  Your filter purifies your expression through constant care and cleaning.  This expands your spirit and reveals the connection to the Source of your being.

Be Well, Be Love  ♥

Christmas Blessing

I am created out of the One Source of infinite life.  All that I am comes from this One Source, one life, one mind, one intelligence.  This One is the source of all power to create, to heal, and to bless.  It is a powerful source of healing and of restoration.  There is nothing that cannot be accomplished by the power of this One.

Every idea I’ve ever had has come from this one perfect intelligence.  Every desire has arisen from it.  Every dream has its roots deep in this Source.  I choose today to realize that my dreams and desires for my life, whatever they may be, come from this Source with all that is needed to bring them into full fruition.  I’m never given and idea without the accompanying power and ability to bring it into full form.

Today, I reassess the dreams I hold for my life.  I think deeply about what I would have my life contain.  Knowing that Spirit can accomplish anything I truly believe in, I set my sights on a higher vision, and know that the power of Spirit can and does fill this potent vision with its creative power and wisdom.  Today I accept that this infinite power is right now flowing through the ideas I have for a life of love, compassion, abundance, and joy.  Whatever my vision, Spirit now fills it with itself.  I am also filled with this powerful spiritual presence, and I know it.

And it is good.  And so it is. 

Seasonal Love

T’is the season to be happy, healthy, and whole!

The season of gratitude and thanksgiving has just passed leading into the season of love and acceptance with the season of new beginnings to follow after that.  There is a reason for the alignment of the seasons to follow each other, one after the other at the end of the year and beginning of the next.  The seasons follow the succession of the integration of the heart virtues leading up to the harvest of the work you have done internally through the year.

This has been an extremely challenging year of change and transformation; cleansing, healing, clarifying, purging, and refining the spiritual nature of your being.  There are some that have had a difficult time transforming their lives into clarity and alignment with what is going on within.  This is the nature of the spirit; to evolve, grow and expand into another higher and more expressive vibration of love and peace.  This cannot be accomplished unless the spiritual work is done within first, through the healing process of removing resistance to ‘what is’ that can be transformed into light.

The lessons that lead to this wondrous journey are called heart virtues.  There is a willingness that one must have to walk the path of the heart virtues and the succession of awareness that is built each step of the way leading you on to the next virtue to uncover any resistance (fear) that your past programming reveals to you along the way.  The journey sounds complex, but it doesn’t have to be.  The part that is most difficult is the judgement and resistance that reveals itself when there is a conflict of interest.  These are the pockets of stored information from early installations of experiences you did not know what to do with, and so it was tucked away where it is not consciously dealt with unless something happens to trigger that information.  That brings the information to the conscious mind and is revealed and brought to the surface for contemplation and healing.  The virtues of compassion, forgiveness, understanding, and humility can transmute this information turning it to love through understanding the true lesson and purpose of the information.  There is something to be gained by this information no matter what it is, and sometimes it is merely the reinforcement of the virtues that are learned and practiced through the revelation of the stored information. This process continues as you convert your judgements and resistance to love through the virtues of:

  • Compassion
  • Forgiveness
  • Understanding
  • Gratitude
  • Appreciation
  • Acceptance
  • Valor
  • Humility

There is nothing that cannot be transformed into the higher vibration of love through the practice, implementation, and integration of the heart virtues within your being.

May this season of love bring you the happiness, joy, and peace that resides within a healed heart and divine mind.

Be Well, Be Love

The Now

Things continue to get more interesting!  There is so much distraction, that creating division seems to be the norm.  This keeps you from focusing on what really matters.  It is all designed to pull you from your Center and slow your spiritual growth to stop the evolution of your soul. The good news is that this is Divinely designed to strengthen your internal resolve and challenge you to practice and anchor the heart virtues to further manifest who you really are; which is a powerful spiritual being. This is what these times are for!

Tolerance, gratitude, and compassion are key expressions for the current time. Knowing that you can make a difference, while working within the virtues, is key to your personal evolution. There may be many things that are happening now that you may not be able to do anything about, yet being centered and balanced within your heart at all times will assist more than you know!  This is the strength of love that is needed now to assist others in their processes. It is not an easy task, but it is the greatest act of love one can put forth!

One thing to remember above all else is that there are no accidents or mistakes, and everything is designed for spiritual growth and refinement. It isn’t as complicated as it seems; our minds and egos make it seem so. Find that place of peace within through the heart virtues. That’s where true peace resides.

Be Well, Be Love

Love/Light

Stepping out of the mind (ego) and into the heart puts love into all that you think, do, and say. This creates an energy of change, transformation and upliftment that goes out to all you are in contact with.  It affects the world at large as a ripple in a pond from a drop of water.  It does not matter where you are; it is felt and expands.  Love does not dissipate, for it gets stronger as it is released.  Love creates a ‘crack’ for light to enter when it encounters a closed off situation [person].  When the light enters the situation [person] it seeks out love and expands it.

When you are living from the heart [heart virtues] you are emanating love. You cannot help but create change for yourself and others when you are in this state of being.  Each virtue begets each one, and it works the same in others in the form of light.  Love is light.  It seeks a way in and finds the source of truth and expands upon that.  Love and truth are both light.  Truth carries in it an aspect of love that generates light and it expands love to shed light on anything where it is present.  When truth is spoken, it carries love to all that hear it.  This love/light (LL)in the form of truth carries with it all aspects of the heart virtues to create healing and transformation to all within its reach.  This light then plants seeds of itself and expands to evolve anything that is of a lower vibration.  All benefit from this experience for when LL is shared it strengthens the source and evolution takes place.

We are all here to evolve. Our hearts seek out all opportunities to assist us with our evolution.  This is done by giving and receiving LL. These sparks of LL exist all around us and we are always seeking it out.  When we create opportunities to give LL, our expansion is greater than when we struggle to receive it.  Struggle is of a lower vibration and it signals an opportunity for healing.  LL highlights the struggle, for it illuminates that which needs to heal.  Lower vibrations do not stand a chance when LL is present!  The lower vibration is forever changed as the alchemy of the frequency of the love mixed with the lower expression automatically changes it.  That is why there are some who are entrenched in their sadness or grief that may not want to be around someone who is trying to help (love) them.  It matters not because your thoughts can carry the same LL energy to them.

When you ‘think’ love it does not have the energy of love. It is only when you feel the thought from the heart that it has the LL energy.  All intention that is put forth when laced with love from the heart, will manifest the desired outcome.  Intention underlies all that you think, do, and say.  When you understand that you will understand the meaning your life carries.  Living from heart centered consciousness reveals to you the truth of your being and enlightens your life!

Be Well, Be Love

Sofia ~ Evolution

Many changes are currently happening that are necessary and needed.  A lot of these changes are causing huge amounts of stress and separation consciousness, and this is all meant for change, growth, and healing to take place.  Outside influences are the biggest precursors to change, and although you may not understand it, there is something that responds to these situations within.

The current situations are all meant for expansion and evolution of the soul/spirit within each one; individually and collectively.  There are no more ‘fences’, and this means that there is no reprieve or delay in your process.  All must be dealt with internally and it is a very personal process.  The end result is finding your place of peace, for when that is the status of most, it will be there for all!

Peace cannot be achieved through the ego.  It is only when the heart has been activated and engrained that the ego can be joined with the heart to create Divine Mind.  The ego is a motivator, in that it shows us where we are out of alignment with the heart virtues.  It then plays a very important role in the healing and purification of our internal self so that the heart consciousness of our physical self can be melded with our Spiritual Self.  This then aligns us with what we want; which is to be happy, healthy, and whole!

Knowing that it is an individual internal process helps us to understand that the journey is within.  There is nothing outside of us that holds the answers.  The search for answers is what drives us toward the awakening of our Spiritual Nature.  There are many forms of inspiration to assist us with this most important goal.  This blog is a valuable tool to that end amongst other writings, classes, teachers, etc.  These are all forms of inspiration, that lead you to answers that you will only find within, as it is specific to your personal path and process.  You are as unique as nature!  Your soul has a special purpose, and if you look into your life you will see it.  You are special.  You are the only one like you!  That makes your journey your own.

Let’s talk distraction.  Knowing that the ego is a great motivator, it is also your biggest hurdle toward Spiritual evolution.  The egos job is three-fold; 1. To create distraction to keep you from evolving, and 2. To control you to keep you firmly entrenched in the 3D illusion and, 3. To police yourself and others, to take you back to number 1.  The egos attempt at distraction is ongoing.  It is part of your programming that is innate to your physical self.  That is what makes it so hard to deal with.  It is a great promoter of separation consciousness which is its ultimate goal, for when you engage in unity consciousness you will find that we are all one created by and from the same Source.  Knowing this gives the heart consciousness power and control thus leaving the ego by the way side.  So, the first step is being consciously aware of the distractions and not allowing them to interfere with and derail your spiritual evolution.

Why should you be concerned about evolving spiritually?  Because that is what we are all here to do.  We are not here to have the most money or have the biggest/best house or car.  We are here to evolve; Spiritually, Mentally, and Emotionally.  We are given the best environment for this journey; a physical incarnation.  What a grand gift it is to be here and have this opportunity!  What you must remind yourself of is to keep it as simple as possible.  One step at a time.  Ask for help from within.  It will come to you in the form of information, grace, and teachers that will come into your life.  Drop the drama and incite your Spirit!  It will lead you to levels of happiness and joy within and show you a life of flow that lacks crisis, chaos, and conflict.

This is how to be the change you want to see in the world! 

State of Being

As the crisis, chaos, and conflict seems to continue, I am reminded of the peace that the heart virtues bring within.

We are in a time of deep fluctuation and change.  There is no other time like this, and that is because people are starting to awaken and draw to themselves the truth that exists, and always has.  There has never been a time before when the truth is there for all to see, if one just looks.  This resonates with your heart as you know it to be true.  What then is revealed to you is the truth you hold within; that you are an enigmatic being that holds within your heart the ability to know and express truth with love.  There is no other reason to exist, other than to evolve and grow from where you are at the current time to the next moment.  All that surrounds to you is taking you on that journey, and that is the only journey there is.  Your free will choice is what part of that journey you are willing to participate in, knowing it is that simple.

There is much out there to sideline your mission, and that is apparent within your life.  The biggest hurdle of all is the ego, for it is the egos job to keep you distracted from your true purpose; which is to evolve.  The outer stimuli that is created by others’ egos in the world works to connect with your ego to feed it energy to keep the illusion intact, and on a purposeful course.  That is to say that the egos main job is to deter love from existing within and so, without.

Love is of itself not a grand and glorious state of being?  If it were so, why is there so much lack of it in the world?  Love is an emotion and a feeling, but more than that, it is a state of being.  It holds within it the powers of the heart; the heart virtues, and it can be much more powerful than anything else.  So, the struggles are between the ego and the heart, each one holding power, and the good news is the heart can overcome!

The ego holds sway keeping the mind at bay until the heart converts it to Divine Mind.  This is not an agenda of the heart like the one the ego holds.  When the egos agenda is apparent you will find yourself immersed, if ever so slightly, in the world of an illusion created by the ego.  This distraction pulls you in with opinions and judgements over things that seem to be worthy, but what is truly worthy of your time and attention?  It goes back to the old adage of ‘if it feels good do it, if not, don’t’.

Too much is ignored about how something or someone makes you feel.  No one has control over this but you.  This is not easy, and the healing that should be done when things surface within, such as feelings, is daunting at times.  There has been much discussion about healing in this blog.  Healing is the starting place to remove the ‘fodder’ that feeds the ego, to keep your heart suppressed.  The heart virtues cannot activate without healing taking place.  Grace is the energy that feeds the healing process.  It is there for anyone to access that sets the intention to heal.  Healing needs to take place to ‘convert’ the ego.  Without internal fear and pain the ego cannot function as a destructive force.  When healing takes place the ego is transformed, it blends with the heart and your life is projected without fear!  This means that love is your state of being and when this happens all that is drawn to you is a reflection of your internal state of being.  What would the world look like if we infused it with this state of being, this energy?

Healing starts as an intention, and the work begins with your feelings as your guide toward wellness and expression of that clarity of being.  We cannot transform our outer world without transforming the inner one.  When we stop resisting the healing that needs to take place, we can transform the ego which will end the judgements.  It’s the judgement that keeps the ego in motion.  Allowing perspicacity to take the place of improper judgement is the answer.  Using proper discernment is a loving expression for yourself which then means it will be loving for your world and the world at large.

Desiring to and finding a way for loving expression within and without, is called for now.  Open to the idea of doing this work within and have the courage to take each step along the way.  Measure your success in each moment and it will unfold before you as a work of love.  Transformation such as this is a process, and must be done over a string of moments.  This is the real process of spiritual evolution and what we are truly here to accomplish.  Finding your way back to the purity of your being is the one journey we are all on together.  It is the only one that counts!

Be Well, Be Love
