We Are All One in Love

See What Connects You; Not What Separates You!

We Are All One in LoveToday’s Healing Message: See What Connects You; Not What Separates You!

Have you ever felt alone, isolated and separate? Have you ever felt unloved or like everyone else is having all the fun and you’re not? Have you ever asked the question ‘what’s wrong with me?’ then focused your attention on all those things you think are wrong with you?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those questions you may want to shift your focus and awareness into the present moment. Connect with yourself and the universe as it IS.

You are connected when your energy and awareness is in the present with yourself and all that is around you. What separates you are those thoughts that keep you in the past or worrying about the future. In essence you lose your connection with yourself and your surroundings and go right into the pictures and illusions your mind has created.

When you are living or stuck in a picture of illusion it not only takes on a life of its own but it grows. You are actually fueling the illusion thereby separating yourself from the present and more than likely the facts. This also separates you from your connections with others because you’re “lost in thought”and not connected with the present and what’s going on right in front of you. It’s also possible you isolate yourself from others because you don’t feel you’re “in a good place” or “happy enough” or you’re “bad”.

If you truly take a few moments to see where those feelings are coming from you will find pictures from the past or worry about the future. When you begin to re-connect with the present moment, you are not only pulling your energy from the illusions of the past but you are acknowledging the here and now.  You are connecting with all that IS not what WAS or is YET TO BE.

In the present there is no guilt from the past. In the present there is no worry about the future. Connecting with yourself is as simple as sitting in a chair, feeling the earth beneath your feet and breathing in the glorious air. It is as simple as feeling the warmth of the sun on your face. It is as simple as feeling the love that comes from within you.

With every step and breath you take you are connecting with the earth and universe. Your awareness connects you with YOU.  You connect with others by remaining present with yourself and them. Why separate yourself with thoughts of the past or dreading a future which has not unfolded? You, WE are all connected as unique individuals.

See and know what connects you with yourself. What are you passionate about? What do you love? How does it feel when the warm sun shines on your face as it brightens the world around you? See and know the love of friends and family. It is there but you may not see it in your separate state of mind. Connect with the present and see what is indeed already there. You don’t have to separate when you are in the here and now.

See and focus on your connections and watch your world and the world around you transform!~Shine Your Light Debbie

How would you spend 525,600?

Say I were to give you $525,600 per year for the rest of your life. That’s $1440 per day! I’m sure you can think of many ways to spend it but the catch is you can’t spend any of it on yourself! Altruism aside, how would you feel if you were given that amount of money and couldn’t spend any of it…not one dime, on yourself.

To be sure that’s a lot of money and you might get a little angry if I dropped a sack filled with money on your doorstep every year yet none of it was for you. Wouldn’t it be great if we ALL had $525,600 per year, every year for the rest of our lives! The things we could do, places we could go, the things we could see & experience. If you could use it for yourself would you place value on every $1 and use it to enhance not only your life but the lives of those you hold dear?

Certainly with that kind of money coming in every year your life would change. You’d probably relax, take time to focus on those things and people who are important to you. You’d spend your time and energy on things that make you happy now instead of worrying about the future. Now follow along with me here. What if the ‘currency’ I’m really talking about is your TIME and how you value yourself? Do you value your time and energy as much as the value you place on money? Play along with me here for a few moments! 🙂

Every year you have 525,600 valuable minutes. That’s 1440 minutes per day and it renews every year. I wish I could say there is ‘roll-over’ time but that’s it! It’s finite. There is no ‘do over’. Once you’ve ‘spent’ your time it’s done, over, finito. Similar to spending money don’t you think? Every minute has value. What you spend your time and energy focusing on has value just as you have great value. Do you spend some of your precious minutes on YOU? If not it’s very much like the ‘catch’ I mentioned in the beginning of this…you are not placing value on yourself!

So how do you spend your 1440 minutes each day? What could you create with the valuable time you spend thinking about the past or worrying about the future? How many minutes do you spend nurturing your spirit? How many valuable minutes do you string together for beautiful moments in your life?

Noticing where you put your time and energy is the first step toward valuing each moment. With awareness you have a choice about how you’d like to spend your minutes. You can choose to spend time creating wonderful experiences and living life or unable to move forward and stuck in the past. You can choose to love or hate. You can choose to spend your time and energy worrying or creating something new. Whatever you choose, remember that once you’ve spent it, it’s gone and merely a memory. Why not choose to Live On Purpose? 🙂

In the movie “RENT” the song “Seasons of Love” says it best. ‘525,600 moments so dear…how do you measure a year….’ There is value to who and what you spend time loving. There is value to where you place your time and energy. Be sure to spend time on your most valuable resource….YOU!~Shine Your Light Debbie
