A strong foundation

The whole ego structure is based on a false sense of security. Because at our core there is a frightened child, we seek safety in ways that are harmful. We unknowingly have dedicated our lives to fear and illusion. We may think we are escaping fear, but in fact we have structured our lives around it. 

Fear plays out in many ways; people-pleasing, an insatiable craving for validation, molding ourselves into someone were not, trying to perfect because making mistakes brings up our unhealed shame... 

We have learned to run when things makes us uncomfortable. We find ways to stay busy or numb ourselves out. We hold unto anger and blame in an attempt to deflect our unworthiness. We choose chaos and confusion rather than truth.

When we face our demons, we won't fall-apart. Instead we experience a sense of relief. It's a lot more work to manage fear than to face it.The ego structure will begin to dis-assemble because it has nothing to strengthen itself on. We will feel empowered. Without ego misleading us, we have the opportunity to build a new foundation resting on faith, truth, love, and connection...

The happy learner

Just as children have an innate need for guidance, so do we.
 In order to receive it, we have to give up intellectualizing things. 
The best thing to do is to surrender to not knowing the answers. 
How easy and joyful it is when we seek direction, 
and then wait for the perfect answer...

She celebrated life 
Waking each day with a skip in her walk
 And a song in her heart. 
The world felt kind and generous. 
Her contentment rose from looking beyond life flaws
To see all life's blessings.

Old wounds

As we clean up the past, 
the hurts begin to fade,
and the future becomes illuminated 
with infinite possibilities...

Your inner light

My Dear,

I am writing this to remind you of your 'essence beauty.' This is the part of you that has nothing to do with age, occupation, weight, history, or pain. This is the soft, untouched, indelible you. You can love yourself in this moment, no matter what you have or haven't done, or been. 

See past any masks, devices, or inventions that obscure your essence.

Remember your true purpose, WHICH is only Love.

If you cannot see or feel love, lie down now and cry; it will cleanse your vision and free your heart.

Building confidence

A woman in harmony with her spirit...
goes where she will without pretense 
and arrives at her destination
prepared to be herself and only herself ”

Letting the past go

Do not perceive your reality today... 
through the lens of your past.
The past merely gave you the perfect lessons...
to bring you where you are at today.
