Hustle and Flow ~ Are You Moving So Fast Your Inspiration Can’t Catch Up?

The best time to take a deep breath is when you don’t have time for it.

Period.

Hustling is a celebrated state of being in our modern culture.

We’re always hustling around and rushing so fast that we’re utterly exhausted when it comes time to make some of life’s most important decisions.

There’s absolutely no reason to be in such a mad rush that you end up at the top of the wrong ladder – pursuing someone else’s agenda instead of your own.

Schedule time every day to focus inward – mindfulness rituals, mantras, journaling, prayer, gratitude, whatever floats your boat – and bring clarity to your daily decisions and lifestyle. When you do you will open your mind to ideas and opportunities you can’t grasp in the midst of mindless hustle.

Just last week I had to completely unplug. I truly was in overload with my businesses, the family, myself.

Clearing the endless noise and just spending time in nature and with a good book by the pool did wonders for my clarity and reasoning skills. More importantly, it restored the inner peace I need to feel comfortable and confident when making a decision.

Time spent focusing inward – finding clarity doesn’t just help you – your mind is powerful and your thoughts create ripples in the world around you.

When you bring clarity into your life, you bring the best of yourself into everything you do – you treat yourself and others better, communicate more constructively, do things for the right reasons, and ultimately improve the world we’re living in.

The bottom line is that a slower pace and a heightened level of awareness – mental clarity – elevates you in countless ways. Then interesting things begin happening – good things you haven’t even thought of yet.

Need some help slowing things down and gaining clarity around your choices?  Has a year of retrogrades left your exhausted and insecure in your decision making? Message me and we can set up a time to contact your Guides and have them shed some light on the path before you.

Anchored

Attachment to our problems and/or unwanted circumstances keeps us anchored where we are. We can not move forward when we are living in our past. When our struggles have become what we use to define ourselves we are closed off from receiving healing, help or inspiration. No longer do we see ourselves as whole, but the scar, the struggle, the loss has become the container that holds our identity.

We all know someone from our family, groups of friends or perhaps someone that we encounter that will recite a story as if it happened yesterday. Later you find out that what took place was years in the past. They wear their struggle like a badge of honor. I am a survivor, they will say. Look let me tell my tale of woe. They are not telling their story to enlighten or teach but they offer it as the reason they can’t experience abundance. Why joy is withheld from them. Why success and happiness are for other people, but why it will never be a part of their NOW story.

Nothing defines you unless you make it part of your story. How you see yourself, how you tell your story is what you will become. It is what you are living now.

Do you like the story you tell? Would you like to tell a different one? How would you define yourself if you really had the chance? What do you want people to know about you and what you are becoming? Answer in the comments or use this as a journal prompt. I would love to hear what you have to say.

Who are you really? What would people be surprised to know?

When Our Manifestation Takes a Turn For The Worse!

Yikes, you were going along just fine, all lined up and WHAM out of nowhere you just got thrown a curve ball.  It seemed so random, so out of the blue, but here you are feeling dazed and confused.

Did Law of Attraction fail you?

Is there a deep secretly held belief you sabotaging your life?

Is it your mother’s fault?

The Answers are No, Probably Not, and No.

What is probably happening, as my Guides reminded me of recently, is that you were going along, living your previous manifestation and you birthed a new desire for something more.

Thing is you are standing here, and now it’s over there.  You, meaning we, now have to grow big enough for the new experience and sometimes that can look a little chaotic.

You want to up-level your income and all of a sudden you lose your job!!  Your Guides are saying, “Hey she won’t go look for the position we lined up with the more money unless we inspire her to act.  You who never seem to pay attention to the subtle cues we send out daily, here is some big contrast to get you on your way.”

The bigger the intention, the bigger the leap, the bigger the contrast at times.  Abraham says all you have to do is align with what is wanted.  While that is true, it is not always easy.  Coming into alignment with what is wanted can take you on an emotional and spiritual journey you never suspected was ahead.

Does this mean you stop wanting new things, new experiences, greater clarity?  Of course not, but you may begin to realize that every time you ask for more there is a period of being raised up.  The ground needs to be broken to accept new seed.  Look for the meaning in the contrast and the direction it is leading you in.

Need a little clarity?  Want to know why your Guides seem to have gone rogue? Message me to schedule an Intuitive Channeling/Tarot session and together let’s find out what’s going on and where you can take it from here.

You Look Strong On The Outside All The While Dying On The Inside.

Spiritually you can be on your last breath so disconnected from Source that you are terminally exhausted. You can be emotionally ready to crumble from untended wounds. Mentally you can be so stretched you are ready to break into a million pieces if just one thing doesn’t drop the way it should.

But you can look good ~~ for a while.

I’ve done it. I would have to say that is one of my better than average skills.

And I’ve crashed too.

We can get so good at compartmentalizing our fears, our wounds, our traumas we trick ourselves into believing that they no longer exist. Until something in the general vibrational vicinity happens and the over the top reaction comes flooding out.

What do you do? Well, some of that depends. Are you pre-crash but you know it’s coming? Are you a little afraid to go digging up bones for fear of what might spring out? Understandable.

Start by first by stabilizing your behavior. Getting more rest. Eating better. Taking time out. Starting a meditation practice. Denying self-care is a form of abuse. Get help if you need to. As you begin to withdraw from some toxic behaviors you will be in a better position to look at the bigger arc of your circumstances.

If you are post-crash and feeling like you’ve been hit by a truck. You have to soothe. You have to unwind. You can’t process anything right now. You are overloaded because your bags are too tightly packed.

I’m a big fan of working it out in a journal. It is a form of prayer and meditation for me. I receive quite a bit when I am connected through writing: clarity, peace, a sense of being grounded. I usually just start free-writing which can seem very chaotic, but over time my thoughts slow and they organize.

Pre or post-crash there comes a point where you have to surrender. You have to ask for help from your Higher Power. After the break-up, the meltdown, the hospital stay, the setting our hair on fire moment the one thing we usually do feel is raw, stripped bare. There is a clarity that can come in those moments, but you can also shoot yourself in the foot to stop thinking about a toothache.

I used to think that was the inevitable destination. Just store everything up and pick up the pieces once it all explodes all over the place. Imagine my surprise when I learned to maintain mental, emotional and spiritual health actually meant that you didn’t have to live that way. One crisis to the next. On the contrary, while we think of caring for ourselves as selfish it is the most loving thing we can do for our loved ones and family.

When the Panic Sets In, Then What?

Who the Hell do you think you Are? Ever hear that in your head. It doesn’t take a room full of strangers to judge. Oh, they may, but this time it’s YOU. Who the Hell do you think you Are to want that?  Deserve that?  Do that?

What makes you think you can lose weight this time?

HA!

Who would love you if they really knew you?

OUTCAST!

What if Everyone knew you were barely holding it together?

FRAUD!

Here’s the thing really, you are working your tail off trying to make some changes in your life. Maybe it’s your Business and you’re really taking it to the next level, or you’re actually dating your dream hunk, or walking into your first Yoga class (Asana what?) and the wave hits you.

Panic!

Ever put off going to the gym because you don’t know what to wear? So first you scour all the athletic ads just trying to figure it out. Hint: go to the Y they are friendly.

Ever hide around the corner because your dream crush just walked in? You’re trying, right? You would think the inner critic could give it a rest for a minute. But Nooooo.

How do you wrangle the fear of rejection, fear of not being good enough? It can be hard. It can feel overwhelming. It feels safer to stay small and just to watch all those other “good enough” people live your dream.

Wait…  What?

We aren’t going to do that.

Here is what we are going to do……..

  1. Stop and Breath. Yep. Square up your shoulders, stretch your spine out straight, close your eyes, lift your chin just a little and breath.
  2. Remind yourself you had a good reason for doing this, even if you can’t remember it now. You trust yourself, right? Everyone started this way, just a little terrified.
  3. Fast forward to look back. See yourself in the future, looking back on this moment. You’ve accomplished your goals, your presentation went well, you are a Yoga Queen, you married the hunk, you are a wildly successful * whatever *.  What would you say to yourself right now?
  4. Get out of the car and go learn how to Downward Dog it’s easier than you think.

The Faint of Heart Hath Never Won the Fair Maiden! 🏰

It takes courage to try. It sometimes takes sheer dumb luck to succeed. But most assuredly it takes a willingness to look like a fool. Yes, a fool. 🤡

Have you ever been too cool to even try? Were you the one who stood with your back against the wall holding up the gym because you didn’t want to learn to dance. 💃🕺

Has the fear of being bad at something held you back. You know there is nothing you are good at now, that you weren’t bad at in the beginning. We forget that. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♂️

I have a friend who took golf lessons at a club one town over just so she didn’t make a fool of herself in front of her “friends”. She is not vain or stuck up but she was terrified of others seeing her as incompetent, even though she has never played before! 🏑🏑

Afraid of what others would think of her if she wasn’t perfect was exactly what led her to drive a very long way out of her way to mask her novice status. Very often the idea of perfectionism keeps you from living the very life you dream about. 😒😕😭

But what if you could look at life as an adventure again? What if “perfectionism” didn’t exist and you just let yourself off the hook? 😮What if you could play like a kid again and not treat everything like a high stakes game? What if you made a fool of yourself and everyone just laughed with you? 🤩 What if living your best life was more important than looking perfect? 🤔

Soon the holidays will be upon us and the idea of Perfectionism does not have more fertile ground than now! The perfect Thanksgiving 🍗🍽️, the perfect decorations 🎄, the perfect Holiday letter, with the perfect family 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦, UGH! Don’t get me started.

Do you ever wonder how some people do it? How they pull off the Holidays and are actually Happy! They aren’t stressed or flustered. They seem prepared for every social occasion always knowing what to say. They seem to light up the room when they walk in. 💫

They make the same amount of money as you. They know all the same people. You know how crazy their Mother is, and yet…. They are happy. They are peaceful.

WHAT’S THEIR SECRET???

They gave up the idea of being perfect. They gave up trying to control everything. They’ve made peace with where they are at. They are traveling light this Holiday Season because they no longer shoulder the weight of unrealistic expectations. They opened up to the magic of accepting themselves and because of that were able to step into the energy of Abundance and Well Being. 💝

Perfect comes at the end of the journey and as far as I have seen life is an ever-expanding ever-unfolding journey.  What was perfect to us just a few years ago we’ve gone so far beyond.  So let it go and let yourself and everyone you love off the hook by enjoying the moment, embracing your loved ones giving up the idea that the perfect anything is what is going to make the moment magical.

YOU MAKE THE MOMENT MAGICAL by simply showing up and being yourself.

Much Love,
Jodie L Hart💝🔮💫

Does Saying an Affirmation, Replace Personal Growth?

Do folks think that saying affirmations or afformations are the magic shortcut to health, wealth and forever prosperity? 🧞‍♂️🧙‍♂️

Me? I love a good afformation (where I send my guides and subconscious mind out seeking the answers that I require for the results I want).  Especially those that REALLY resonate with where I want to BE!! I LOVE going general, seeing the big picture and I love that HIGH FLYING feeling that comes with Vibrational Alignment. 💃🕺

Do you want to know what I also know? They are simply a part of aligning your energy. They are a part of raising your vibration. They don’t replace personal growth. 😳

  1. Contrast has its place. It helps you decide what you want, by showing you what you don’t. Ignoring contrast, pretending it’s not happening, brings you more contrast. At some point in time, you are going to have to make a decision.
  2. Making a decision comes from your core beliefs and values regarding the world 🌎 YOU live in. If you believe having money 💵 is inherently evil 😈, that it’s easier for a camel 🐫to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to go to heaven at your core; it’s going to be hard for you to experience prosperity. Sooooo you might need to work on your Money Mentality. 💵🧠
  3. If your choices are coming from a place of pain 🤒or fear 😮, you will constantly experience a feeling of being held back or worse yet, get only so close to your dream before it all turns to smoke. UGH!! That is a Worthiness issue in need of healing. 💝💖

Along with your personal growth, affor/affirmations are powerful tools. A statement affirmed born from your aligned beliefs, well…  that can begin to change your life!

If you’re ready to align your believing and create some great affirmations that truly support your growth, I can help with that.  Feel free to Facebook message me or email me and I can make suggestions to help.  For a fuller look at what’s going on in your life and how you can be aligned with what you want to achieve whether it be love, money or career I have availability throughout the week in the mid-afternoon and evenings for 15 and 30-minute sessions.

Everything we experience outside of ourselves is but a reflection of what we’ve created within. You can keep rearranging the deck chairs on a sinking ship or you can learn to patch the holes.

I’ve found waiting for your lover to change is as useless as walking out the door and hoping they will chase you. But the path of honoring self and removing the limiting blocks that keep you stuck with someone who will not see your greatness….. that is what we can do something about.

Amazingly I have found when my clients start to tap into that aspect of themselves, those people who couldn’t see them before start to wonder what they’ve been missing all this time.  😊

Be Blessed, Stay Blessed!

ONLY THE SHADOW KNOWS……. 🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️🧛‍♀️

How could so and so do this to me? Why do I always fall for the wrong guy? People are always taking advantage of me! No one ever listens to me!! HINT: It’s not about you. Don’t worry it’s not about me either. 🤷‍♂️ 🤷‍♀️

“Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz

In Evolutionary Astrology the 1st house represents US and how we enter the world. The 7th house represents not only how we participate with others, it also holds our Shadow side. So we work out our Shadow energies in partnership with others and they with us. 👻💞👻

So often the “others” in our life seem to enter in to just stir up trouble. The mother in law, the nosy neighbor, gum cracking co-worker, etc. People who are stuck seem like they are dating the same person with a different face over and over again. Having the same friend over and over again. Dealing with the same boss over and over again. 😈

As much as they try and change their circumstances the same thing keeps getting recreated! 😭😵😖

Once a person resolves or heals their shadow as it is being expressed through another, the dynamic of the relationship will change or the relationship will cease because there is no further need for that person to be in their life. 🚑👩‍⚕️

The perfect example of this is a colleague of mine who literally every guy she dated ~ lasted about three months before they broke up. The very next girl the guy would start dating — he married. This happened more than four times in a row!! 💍💞

See, they were working out their shadow side of commitment with her, but she was not engaging in the work herself. As they moved on, she remained stuck. Happily, we figured out the lessons and resolved the block. HOORAY!! 💃🕺

Taking responsibility for where you are in life, doesn’t mean that you have failed. Only that you have begun to awaken to your own greatness and power. 👑🎇🎆  With all the eclipses and all the retrogrades, this has been an entire summer of shadow work. If you are feeling a little exhausted you wouldn’t be alone.

Setting aside some time to work this out with an Intuitive as a Guide can certainly move along much quicker than sifting through 100’s of Facebook posts and online Groups. Make an investment in you and save yourself some of the heartache and headache of going it alone. You will be amazed!

man and woman talking

Can’t Hear You

Do you ever have someone that you just can’t hear? Or you absolutely know the person you are talking to does not understand a word you are saying.

You check yourself. Yes, you are speaking clearly, out loud and in the proper language, but yet they say things “I just don’t understand.” “Or what do you mean?”

You: You want to see a Movie on Saturday?

Them: No I’m tired.

You: What?

Them: I’m tired

You: It’s Tuesday, how do you know you’ll be tired on Saturday?

Them: Saturday is a good day for rain.

You: Is this a real conversation???

Them: Why are you mad? Do we have cake?

You call your best friend. You say, “Can you understand the words coming out of my mouth?” She confirms that you are indeed using your words correctly. You hang up.

You are in the twilight zone. Cue music……

All jokes aside about husband and wives, I actually see this a lot in relationships. When two people are on widely different frequencies they literally stop being able to hear the other person.

We also see this played out politically, not amongst politicians and political agendas, but amongst real people. They literally can not hear the other point of view the energy is so foreign to them.

When we talk about energy sometimes it’s easy to think it’s all “out there” kind of stuff. It’s what your astrologer or reiki healer says. It doesn’t really affect us physically ~~ like our senses. It wouldn’t shift our perception of reality. Well because reality is reality. Right?

Huh? What you say?

Seriously, this month, heck this summer is so filled with life-altering astrology things may be a little out of focus. And communication… well, it could use some help too. So what’s a girl to do? Schedule a session with Me and let’s see how we can make all this swirling chaos work for you!!

Girl with light balls

Doubt Your Doubts Before You Doubt Your Faith

That’s the super-short version of my advice for those moments when nothing seems to be going as planned — when everything you want seems out of reach.

Just be right where you are, with an open mind.

Let go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and sincerely appreciate it for everything that it is.

Easier said than done of course, especially when tragedy strikes.  We’ve all coped with real tragedies, but let’s be honest:  we create a lot of tragedy in our lives out of fairly minor incidents.  Something doesn’t go exactly as planned, we freak out about it and let stress become us.

Truth be told, the biggest difference between peace and stress is attitude.  It’s about how you look at a situation and what you decide to do with it.  It’s remembering that there are no certainties in life — you don’t know exactly what the future will bring.  So your best strategy for living is to make the best and most positive use of the present moment, even when it disappoints you…

Especially when it disappoints you!

Your life, with all its ups and downs, with all its unexpected twists and turns, has molded you for the greater good.  Your life has been exactly what it needed to be up to this point.  Don’t think you’ve lost time.  Don’t think you haven’t arrived.  It took each and every intricate and confusing situation you have encountered to bring you to right here, right now.

And if you have the courage to admit that you’re a little scared, the ability to smile even as you cry, the nerve to ask for help when you need it, and the wisdom to take it when it’s offered, then you have everything you need at this moment.

The only thing stopping you is your mind and the thoughts you entertain. Take a deep breath and re-center yourself. You’ve become a true master of your life when you learn how to master your focus. Value what you give your energy to. Focus your energy on what matters most — the present.

Some things to remember while moving forward…

It’s truly powerful and beautiful when a person’s intentions are genuine.  Remember to do things for the right reasons, even when things don’t work out as planned.  Your “why” must be bigger than the disappointments and challenges you face.  As often as you can, remind yourself why!  With a strong enough reason why, you’ll be able to do what’s required at any time and in any circumstance.

If somebody is working on themselves and changing for the better, it’s unnecessary to keep bringing up their past.  People can change and grow.  Take this to heart, and show yourself the same courtesy too.  Oftentimes you don’t even realize that you’re blocking your own present blessings by holding on to the past.  Start letting go and be present now.

Calmness is a human superpower.  The ability to not overreact or take things personally keeps your mind clear and your heart at peace.  It’s never too late to change your attitude about something you can’t change.  Just decide to make the best of it.  Take life day by day and be grateful for the little things.  Let go of all the purposeless drama, aimless time-wasters, and mental clutter that keeps getting in your way.

Take care of your mind and the way you speak to yourself.  Don’t let negative self-talk defeat you.  Talk like you are blessed.  Walk like you are blessed.  Think like you are blessed.  Work like you are blessed.  And you will be, one way or another.

The wrong choices can bring us to the right places.  The biggest failures often carry the best lessons.  When you fail to get what you want, consider that it just might be a blessing in disguise.  Seriously, be grateful that certain connections and situations didn’t work out.  If you didn’t let go and learn, you would be stuck with false promises.

It’s funny how we outgrow what we once thought we couldn’t live without, and then we fall in love with what we didn’t even know we wanted.  Eventually, you’ll end up where you need to be, doing the right things, alongside the right people.  Patience and persistence are the key.  But don’t forget to pause on occasion and appreciate how far you’ve come, so you can step forward again with grace.

Go ahead and sing out loud in the car with the windows down, dance in your living room with your family, stay up late laughing, paint your walls any color you want, and enjoy some sweet wine and chocolate cake.  Go ahead and sleep in on clean white sheets, throw spontaneous parties, and read books so good you lose track of time.  Just keep living and making God glad that he gave life to someone who loves and appreciates the gift.

 

If you haven’t had time to check out the replay of our free class in Worth Wealth & Alignment ( http://bit.ly/2y0nKwE ) you have two more days to enjoy the magic before it’s gone from the Group. http://bit.ly/magic-money-manifestation

I have a few single session appts. available between now and June 8th.  This is a great time to invest in your inner work and open up your receiving of the desires of your heart.  Is it Love that you are seeking?  Purpose?  Or maybe your desires are clear but the road is not.

The desires of your heart were placed there by God.  It is your destiny to fulfill them. Working with your Guides is a deeply moving and loving experience.  They understand the fullness of you.  Working with me often begins to open more access for you to work with your Guides directly and know their wisdom for yourself.

Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

CHECK YOURSELF BEFORE YOU WRECK YOURSELF. I love that saying. Or let me paraphrase. YOU are 100% RESPONSIBLE for the energy you bring into the room. ALWAYS.

You can add or detract from the well-being in the room. You can bring your best (or at least the best you got at the moment) or you can be ornery and mean. You can look to uplift or you can be an energetic bully. Which feels better?

There are days we really want to be the bully. Life’s not fair and the next person that gets in my way is going to GET IT! Sometimes we actually follow through and the customer service rep, our kid’s teacher, the person behind the counter just doesn’t receive our best.

I had an Aunt that could cast a pall over an entire house. Her countenance was that of a continuous funeral. My Father, on the other hand, would light up any room he entered, people were downright cheery when he stopped by.

Children are especially good at interpreting energy and they respond without deception. Having no social filter, they either like you or they don’t and aren’t ashamed to show it!

Beyond our polite words and our social graces, we bring our vibration. The combination of recent events we’ve energetically encountered combined with the power of our active thoughts and beliefs.

Realizing the tremendous impact our energy has on people and the environment it is wise to take a moment to set your tone. Don’t be the person who poisons the well, the Debbie Downer, the constant Naysayer, the Nitpicker, my least favorite ~~ the Whiner.

Why?

Your energy will either draw to you or repel people, opportunities, and blessings that you desire in your life. Everyone you meet has the potential to be a cooperative component in your life, just as you have the opportunity to be for them. It’s a spiritual truth that your blessings do not come from others but often through them.

It’s natural to get upset from time to time or to feel harried and out of sorts, but when you are going to open that door to your home and greet your guests, meet your friends, have that meeting at work ~~ take a breath. Literally, shake off the negativity, (it can come back later if you really want it to). Conjure up a smile, yes it really does elevate your energy and square up your shoulders.

It only takes a few moments of allowing good feeling energy to gain some momentum. Your friends, co-workers, spouse, family will thank you for it! How do you turn it around, what tips can you share? Let us know in the comment section below. You may win a free 30-minute session with me just for sharing your thoughts!

Your Emotional Guidance System: Doubtful Directions?

“Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.” – Khalil Gibran

Doubt can plague us, follow us, haunt us, cause us sleepless nights and many distracted hours. It creeps into the corners of our minds where certainty once stood shining brightly. If left unchecked, doubt will immobilize our actions and freeze our creative flow. Where does it come from and how can we benefit from doubt? Is Doubt a friend or a foe?

Overall Doubt can be a sign from our Emotional Guidance System that we need more information. We are unsure and unconvinced of the reality before us. In our fluid reality doubt can be seen as a flag signaling that we are going in the right direction and a few tweaks will keep on the right path, or that we are about to be thrown off the road into the bushes all together.

In an ongoing relationship for instance, doubt can let us know in the early subtle stages that the energy in relationship is shifting. We may be picking up on faint outward signs that we and our partner are not in sync.  When we doubt a partner’s sincerity it’s a sign to look deeper. It’s also a sign to slow down because the road ahead is not what it seems. Addressing our doubts with a partner can also send us down roads of greater intimacy. They always signal that further information is available to us if we choose to look.

“Doubt is useful, it keeps faith a living thing. After all, you cannot know the strength of your faith until it has been tested.” – David Magee

There is another form of Doubt, the less kind form. The kind that feels like a dark, slouching presence residing in the corner of our room at night. The kind that feels like the overflow of the emotional closet, a place where all our fears and insecurities are “safely” tucked away. You know the closet, the tightly locked up space within us that allows us to function… as long as we don’t peak inside.

This kind of Doubt erodes our confidence, stops us cold if we try something new, dream too big, or aim too high. It erodes the bonds of our most personal relationships and stands in judgment of even our most innate goodness. This is not your friend or your Inner Guidance. Its nature is elusive. Its roots hard to follow. How do we tame such a beast we cannot see, or taste, or touch?

This Doubt is a red Flag, a big ole Waving in your face red Flag. Its roots lie in our worthiness. Our worthiness is our ability to realize the Divine Nature of our Being, our connection to Source Eternal, to the All that Is, God/dess. Doubt does not create this separation, but it is an indication that we are separating ourselves from Divine Life force. Accepting the Divinity of our Nature, that we are here for a purpose, a reason, that our presence is not a mistake or an accident of fate is the first step to accepting that there are bigger forces at play in our lives and that our lives matter.

Acceptance of the Divine within is the beginning to taming the doubts that chase you through your days and nights. It is the first step to allowing Healing, Love, and Forgiveness, both for self and for others, to take hold. It will bring the Peace that alludes you and the surety of your place in the world, no matter the turbulence of the waves around you. You are loved. You are Worthy. You do Belong Here.
