Time for Rebirth

Posted: Updated:

The adventure continues. This life you acquired through desire gives you many opportunities to discover yourself. You have the great opportunity to sit inside of yourself and discuss anything that you need or want to know. Yes. All of the answers are inside. The great sages and masters have told us throughout the span of time.

Ask. Listen. Take a few minutes each day and close your eyes. Breathe deeply. Your intention to breathe into the abdomen takes your breath to a deeper level. Breathing is what gives you life. It is your key to life. Use it to have more vitality and more clarity. When you are out of breath you are out of life. When you have to catch your breath you have to catch and reconnect to your life. This is truth!

During July it is time to begin another life review. Take time and look back at where you have been and please acknowledge where you are now. Do not judge yourself -- that is not what this time is about. It is purely for acceptance. The more you accept yourself, the more you can receive. I am speaking of gold. The true gold is love. The purest of all gold is self-love. When you receive the gold of your heart you can give so much to others and receive so much from others. When you accept yourself and love yourself you will not be operating from fear or guilt. Your energy field will open up and you will live in a new way.

The past is over. Yes it is. If you want it to be. If you forgive yourself and love yourself a new matrix begins. A rebirth, so to speak. It is a process that begins with review, moves through acceptance and forgiveness (leading to self-love) and then on to rebirth. Celebrate yourself.

Rebirth can be anything you want. You can create your life. If you simply wake up from the dream and find yourself more at peace, it will change the way your life unfolds. It will enhance your journey. Relationships may change. Jobs may end. Your boundaries may be defined in a different way. This will ultimately prove to be life enhancing. Change is always bitter sweet but change is all there is. Get used to it! Flow with it. You cannot be a stagnant pond when the rivers are calling you to the ocean of life. Unless you choose to be small. That is your choice. Do not blame others. This is your life. You are not here to make others happy. You are here to be happy with whatever you create and pass it on. It is all about you.

We are so much more than we are willing to admit at times. We are not this aging body (thank goodness). We are a magnificent creation with unlimited possibilities. Do you want to dream big? Breathe big. Give big. Love big. You have it in you.

Living Celebration

Sit with yourself in front a mirror once a day.
Look deeply into your own eyes and say seven times:
I love you. I forgive you. I accept you. You are perfect. You are love.

Write down on a white piece of paper and place it where you will see it on a daily basis:
I am learning to love myself totally.
