Freedom in the mind's eye

There is Freedom in Your Mind’s Eye….

Freedom in the mind's eyeThere is a space within you that offers endless grace and ease. It is a sacred and peaceful place where you are the authority. This is a place you enter to re-charge, find your neutrality, expand your perspective and see things in a different light.

Where is this sacred space you might ask? It is in the center of your head, your mind’s eye. The best part about this is that you can enter at any time. In fact, if you choose, you can use this space 24/7 to live a more spiritual life.

As Hiro Boga says, “To Be Soul, Do Soul”

“Close your eyes and turn all the way around, slow-w-ly. Sense or feel the open door, the one that offers you ease, that welcomes you to a new homecoming.

Walk up to this doorway, still with your eyes closed. Feel the grain of the threshold under your feet, the door jamb beneath the palm of your hand. Feel the life pulsing on the other side, offering itself to you.

When you’re ready, step through. Breathe this new air. Feel who you are, in this unknown, deeply familiar place. Feel how you stand, how your feet hold and are held by the ground here.

Feel yourself welcomed, embraced, in all your beauty and timidity, your power and grace. Feel all this place holds for you and with you.

Ask those questions that glow steadily in your heart.
Here are the ones that arise to my lips in this liminal space.
Why am I here?
How do I truly love?
What is yearning to be born?
How do I serve now?
How do I love my world now?

Stay here for as long as you wish. When you feel complete, for now, ask this place for a talisman, a reminder that the door is open for you, that welcome and belonging await you there, as they do here.

Turn around, and step back into the present moment, bringing the gifts of this place with you. Place your talisman on your altar, or in the altar of your heart. Kiss it, bless it, be blessed by it.

Write a note, a promise to yourself, to your soul, to your world: This is what I will do to live where I’m being called, to live where I belong.

Then, gather your allies and resources. Make a plan. Put it into motion. Begin today.”
From Hiro Boga’s book To Be Soul, Do Soul: Adventures In Creative Consciousness

There is no right way or wrong way to “do soul” or “be soul” but there are tools and techniques that help you along the way. Open your mind to the possibilities and try new things. I love the passage that says “place the talisman in the altar of your heart. Kiss it. Bless it and be blessed by it.” Give it a try and let me know about your experience!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Please EXcuse the exCuse’!

How many times in your life have you asked someone to excuse you? How many times have you found yourself making an excuse for yourself or someone else?

Asking to be excused is a polite way of asking to be ‘released’ from a requirement.

A few examples: when you were in school and needed to be excused from class, you brought a note from your parents. Others are when you excuse yourself for bumping into someone or you are trying to get someone’s attention when they are doing something else.

What about the other definitions? The english language  is tricky if it is not your mother tongue but it IS interesting that the same word is used to pardon or release someone (or yourself) from blame as well as to offer a “reason” for something you cannot or choose not to do.

How many times a day do you make an excuse or excuse yourself?

Who or what are you exactly excusing and to whom? Are you somehow justifying  or rationalizing something to yourself in the process? Do you find yourself making excuses for someone else? More importantly are you being truthful when you are asking to be excused or are you simply making an excuse?

When you take ownership of the things you do or say there is no need for an excuse! Ownership means taking responsibility for your actions, words, and choices and how they may have affected someone else or possibly even how the excuses (or excusing yourself) affects your life.

Being polite is not just wonderful, it’s the right thing to do. Of course we try to be polite with each other but it’s a completely different energy when we ‘make excuses’  to assign blame,  or we choose not to take ownership of a decision that we (or someone else) has consciously or unconsciously made.

Oh yes. We not only make excuses for ourselves but we make excuses for others and sometimes we do this to assign blame or avoid the truth. When we make excuses for others we are, at some level, healing them but that, my friends, is a subject for another post.

Take a deep dive into “why”!

Don’t ask why, explore why. Exploring WHY you choose a particular word,  an action (or inaction), or why you made a certain choice leads you to learning more about yourself.

Taking an inner journey to explore the “why” opens the door to forgiveness and change.

What you notice in self-exploration is not to be judged. What you did or didn’t do in the past is probably not how you would handle it now. The important steps to this are to see what you see. Acknowledge what you see. Own what you see. Forgive yourself. Taking ownership has a great deal of freedom that comes along with it.

Every thought, deed or action has a learning experience tied to it. Your awareness and ownership of the choices you make (or made) can lead you on an interesting journey of the soul. You may even find that the choices you made in the past were laid on a foundation of programming built by someone else. If that’s the case, it’s time to build your own house on a foundation of ownership and truth.

This is not about being right or wrong in a situation. It’s about owning your choices and taking responsibility for them. If you make a mistake own it and learn from it. Clear the energy. Clear the guilt. Forgive yourself. Once the light of awareness  illuminates an excuse consider it an opportunity to learn and heal.

So please excuse the excuse! Take ownership of your life and stop making excuses! If you find yourself making excuses for someone else in your life forgive them for their lack of awareness. If you make excuses for yourself, forgive yourself.

YOU have the power to transform your life. You have the power to build a foundation without the need to make excuses. If you don’t want to start now, what’s your excuse? ~Shine Your Light Debbie
