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

Hope Springs Eternal! Don’t EVER Give Up!

“Hope springs eternal in the human breast; Man never Is, but always To be blest:The soul, uneasy and confin’d from home, Rests and expatiates in a life to come.”~ Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man

Recently I was asked “how does one find hope?”. This is a really great question because for me hope is one of those things that comes and goes. There are days I’m hopeful and days I feel like giving up. Not everyone is hopeful all the time. In reflecting and meditating on the question to offer an intelligent answer I realized that hope is born from  joy and present time. Hope is  thinking positive and knowing you have options!

Hope is about Having Options!

Certainly there is no hope if you fear you have no options.  There are always options! With your energy in the present you open doors and allow spirit to show you those options. If you have no hope or feel like you’ve lost all hope, what happened is at some point you gave up or gave in to your situation. Your attention and energy was on the challenge not the solution! If you choose to believe there is nothing more and you can’t move forward you have certainly prophesied your future. The energy of hope gives you the strength to open your mind, think outside of the box and try different things. If you have exhausted all options due to disease or chronic pain you still have the option to live your life to its fullest by finding things that bring joy to your heart and give you hope. The reason I mentioned there are always options is because in the world today new solutions to health issues are discovered and uncovered every day. Don’t ever give up hope that a new option might very well come your way!

Abandon Hope?

One of my spiritual teachers always used to say “abandon hope”. He always laughed when he said it. I always understood that to mean “give it up”. Not GIVE UP but give IT up. In other  words let it go. Focusing solely on hope and not letting it go keeps you stuck in the hope and not open to receiving the answer by allowing it to come to you. What if hope is the means to actualize the answer? Hope can shift your energy from deep despair to hopeful optimism. Find just one little shred hope, shift your energy then open yourself up to receiving. You never know when the thing that’s right for you will find its way to you. It might be just around the corner so don’t ever give up!

Hope Springs Eternal in the Present

Hope flows within you like a clear, crisp mountain stream and all you need do is drink from its waters to revitalize yourself. Hope gives you the strength to move forward and do what you need to do. Without hope you lie stagnant, in despair and isolated in pain. When there is lack of hope you will notice your energy is caught up in past events or worrying about a future which may never come to pass. How many times have you been so caught up in past or future events that when you finally come to the present you have to ask “where did the time go?”.  It’s interesting to note that when you wake up you notice how much energy you expended and where it felt like there was NO solution you find MANY solutions and options!

Allow hope to act like a free-flowing mountain stream. Giving up is building a dam to stop the waters. As in the picture on this post mountain waters flow around the rocks and those same rocks will eventually be smoothed out and worn down by the strong flow of water. Hope gives you strength in the present. Finding hope is not always easy but if your energy is in the present and you find just ONE thing that brings you joy, hope is ignited and the flame will burning brightly to light up many options which in turn bring you more hope! Here’s to a new day full of HOPE!~Shine Your Light Debbie
