Believe in Yourself

A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on its own wings.  Always believe in yourself.

When you were born, you believed in yourself.  You knew your purpose.  You trusted the Divine.

Then it happened…you began to believe in the illusion around you.  What other people thought and believed became your truth because you wanted to belong and be a part of something.  The fear of being alone drives more self-limiting behaviors than any other fear.  You began to move from your heart guiding you to your mind guiding you.  The mind is a beautiful tool, if used correctly.  We began to individualize our minds and then believed we were separate from everything and everyone around us.  We felt alone…the one feeling we were trying to avoid.

Whatever your beliefs might be, know this…the human mind is simply the place where we individualize God.  What if your life was about letting go of your self-created limiting beliefs and instead letting God be God as YOU?

Our world is transforming.  What is “breaking down” is not the world, but the consciousness that created it.  We did that…now it is our turn to balance what has been done.  The confidence you have in yourself does not come from anything external; it comes from that silent place within that is YOU.  You can do and be anything you wish…your only job is to define those wishes, find that peaceful place within and allow the brilliant tapestry to unfold.  On the surface it may look broken, not how you imagined, and maybe even frightening.  The path you ended up on may not be the one you imagined.  Know that everything in the Universe happens for the highest good.  Souls do sacrifice their time here so others can learn what they need to learn and fulfill their purpose.  When a tragedy occurs, instead of focusing on the horrible aspects of it, step back and look deeper.  See people coming together, helping each other and letting compassion win.  We must believe we scripted what we did in our lives for a reason, knowing we could handle all that has occurred and will occur.

Life is not so much about living…it is about allowing life to come through as YOU.

Stop focusing on what may or may not happen to the foundation on which you find yourself standing.  Look forward, take a breath and believe in yourself.  You are so special God chose you to be here at this time.  He is living through you to experience life AS you.  The answers are there…you just have to silence your mind enough to hear them.

We love you just as you are.  No strings attached…promise.

When you come to the edge of the light that you know and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen:  there will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.”  ~Patrick Overton

This is my first blog post officially from Scottsdale, AZ.  I arrived at my new home yesterday afternoon at a sweltering 113 degrees!  My new home is beautiful with a scenic view of the McDowell Mountain Range as the view from my backyard.

Our road trip out here was 4 ½ days long, 38 hours and 2400 miles.  By the end of our trip, we were laughing at everything we were so slap happy.  (Thank you Eddie Fetty!)

This morning I woke up, drove my friend Donna to the airport at 4:00am and on my drive home it hit me what I had done…moved my life 3000 miles away from everything I know!  I burst into tears!  It is a most interesting sensation to not know where you are going, to not know a soul where you live and not to have your normal “comforts” around you.  When we find ourselves in times like this that is when we need to embrace the newness of life and the Divine change with which our life has been blessed.  New-ness is scary sometimes, but it is needed.  When you feel uncomfortable in your life that is when you are growing the most.  It is life letting you know that something needs to shift and that shift will take you closer to your life purpose.

New-ness is scary because we want to know for sure what the outcome will be and that we will be ok.  Learn to trust your intuition and the powers that be and know that we do not need to know the outcome…sometimes it is better not to know and more exciting!  Our choices are more pure and present moment – which is where our power lies.

This week’s focus will be on “foresight,” and having the courage to trust Divine will over personal will, learning to receive, the best use of your personal power and learning to master your mind to manifest what you want in your life.  Apatite is our power crystal this week and she reminds us that our foresight into our life is very powerful if we trust it.

Take time today to trust your gut and go with the flow.  See where life wants to take you.  Let go of the steering wheel and let the Divine drive for a bit.

(Where was the Divine the last 5 days?  I could have used a driving break!!  Lol!)

Loving my new home and not being in the car,
