Our Divine presence is
always one breath, one whisper away.
We can call to what is greater than
ourselves at any given moment.
No matter how far we think we
have run away, that power has been holding
our hearts all along.
As you all may have noticed I've taken some time away from Spirit Launcher to focus on some other things. It is so good however, to be back. The past few weeks have brought some serious learning, gratitude, acceptance and ultimately understanding under my belt. My yoga teacher training has accelerated my spiritual practice to a whole new level.
We just finished the book, Value of Values by Swami Dayananda Saraswati. This book to me was so special and so significant in reflection of my constant awakening in life. This book was a life review of sorts for me. It's incredible to see the comparisons in each section of my old way of being followed by the new tools and living techniques that I have adopted and have been implementing in my everyday life.
One thing that he discussed in this book is our non-separateness from the Divine. And that we are in fact that Divine power in human form. When I first ventured on my conscious spiritual journey this was one of the first concepts that I was introduced to by Dr. Wayne Dyer. I wrote about this in my article, The Extension. This very concept was a game changer for me because I never acknowledged or knew how to accept that spark within me. That spark of love for creation of the desires that were implanted in me. Understanding that it is my piece of the Divine that is my promise of purpose in this life, still gives me butterflies just thinking about it to this day.
I've been blessed with the opportunities to share with the world what I love to do most, and that is taking care of people. I get to care for patients in my nursing career. I get to care for my clients when they walk through the door of my spa. And with yoga, I've learned to take care of myself and that Divine spark within. Eventually, these will be teachings I can share with my own clients when I expand my business. This practice has deepened some of my relationships and it has allowed me the strength to let go of the ones that no longer serve me.
It is so interesting to me to examine how my life has unfolded from my past and to see bits of my future ventures as they come to me in sparks of inspiration. One incredible gift that was given to me happened during a recent Kirtan concert that I attended with my mom. I talked in one of my very first articles called, My Awakening, of how music was such an integral part of my life as far back as my earliest memories. I dreamt about writing and performing music professionally but my fear of failure stopped me in my tracks. As I wrote that article I thought that desire was long gone. And then I attended the concert. This particular Kirtan performer had been introduced to me during a +Gabrielle Bernstein lecture over a year ago. I downloaded this particular song and listened to it over and over again. When I found out he was performing at my yoga school I was in complete shock.
Not only had this particular song been a huge part of my healing in the last year, I was going to be able to see him perform and take a workshop with him the following day. Funny how your destiny will meet you at the most perfect time, every time. When the concert began I wanted to be singing along with everyone else. The fear of resistance settled in. As much as I wanted to join in I felt the fear welling up in my chest and throat. I didn't judge it. I felt it, acknowledged it and accepted it as rising for a reason. There got to be a point where I didn't feel the urge to just want to sing, it became that I had to. So I did. I heard my own voice sing in front of other people releasing that fear. Although I knew the premise behind the concert was to call onto the Divine, I've never felt the Divine within me to that degree. I am forever changed because of that night and the workshop I attended the next day.
I believe life meets us exactly where we are. I am so proud of my own bravery during my own walk within. I no longer judge myself for my fears and doubts. I fearlessly allow what needs to come up show itself, in order for me to walk through the other side of it. When I use the word fearless, I don't mean I don't feel the resistance attempting to hold me back. I mean that I acknowledge it, knowing that I must walk through it and not allow it to restrain me from what it is I'm being called to do. I've learned to be fearless whether it be through baby steps or leaps and bounds. Often it is those baby steps that lead me to those leaps and bounds.
My walk within has allowed me to reach the Divinity that is my spirit, that is my heart and soul. It has allowed me to deal with compassion towards myself and to reach out with compassion to others in a way that is beyond words. I realize that I am a writer but my actions must speak louder. When we look within, we reach a state of loving grace and offer an extension of our hearts to the world around us. We can clear our path from all things and people who cloud our way. Everyone and everything becomes our teachers in order to bring forth what is within us that needs to be released whether it be love or fear.
The walk within has taught me that I am never alone. The Divine presence within me is my constant companion through this life. My guide that offers intuitive intervention in everything I do. As I speak to my heart, I honor the Divinity inside. As I honor that Divinity, nothing is lost, all can be gained, and all will be what is meant to be in every given moment.
How do you speak to the Divine within? Share with us, we would love to hear from you!
