Courageous

courage

I read a quote somewhere (don’t know who wrote it) “If you choose to trust your mind, you’ll have to keep choosing for the rest of your life. If you choose to trust your heart, it is the last choice you’ll ever make.”
This takes courage. Having courage is about moving through the rough times even when you might be defeated once again. It is about having faith that the roughness will lead to smoothness. Courage is about walking a tightrope without looking down, discarding the possibilities without allowing hurt to dictate, and truly knowing that whatever happens is for the betterment of your spirit. When you move through to the other side you already know that the Divine had a specific plan for you. In faith there is no failure.
Our lives are either lived through courage or fear. Which one will you pick? It’s not easy. Pretending to be courageous is a facade. True courage does not require an audience…because it is lived through divine guidance. It’s letting go of all expectations and anxieties of the unknown. Courageous is what we rise to BEcome every single day in this human race!
Now, darlings, go do you thing. Take the road less traveled and be happy. Follow your heart because that’s where your intuition lives. Allow Source to be your GPS. Have a great afternoon.

The Sum of Stories

We are the sum of our stories. When I began my blog and writing publicly a few years ago I feared sharing anything too personal. But, as I met other writers I let go of the fear and began writing from a place of vulnerability. It’s never easy to let go. At times I have shared way too much of the scars, the rawness and the sensitivity. And in those times I have received some amazing heartfelt private emails from folks in different parts of the world saying, “Oh my gosh, I am going through this too!”

The act of writing is based on releasing all expectations. I don’t write for anyone. I write because something inside pushes and pulls me to release. And, sometimes I need to step back and recognize that there are things too private to also share with the world because once it’s out there I can’t retract them. There is such a thing as hanging your dirty laundry for the world to see.

Here, I tell you…the only thing you can do for your soul is to create from a place of truth and wonder. In this place there is an endless source of awareness and love. Write, paint, create all that’s inside. We will always teeter in the unknown. Don’t create to be liked. Don’t put things out there that you think will be accepted. Put your work out there because it is coming from a spiritual connection with humanity. We have the most awesome opportunity to inspire others every day and receive endless inspirations in return.

We tell others to be brave because we know that it is a conscious choice. Bravery is a commitment between your spirit and the heart to keep going. It’s a relationship that requires acceptance while releasing any sense of victimization. So next time you whisper to someone, “You are brave! I love your strength!” Feel it in the core of your own existence. Courage comes from falling while not allowing yourself to permanently stay there having a pity party.

You are courageous every single day. It isn’t until we see it in others that we remember our awesomeness. And if you don’t recognize your greatness when you are with loved ones then you need new folks in your life. Like, seriously! Look at your circle of friends!!!

You are magnificently created to be in oneness with others. We become mirrors of one another. Creating and sharing are art forms for seeing the uniqueness in our hearts and souls.

Thank you for the constant source of love and support. Thank you for showing up and being with me on this Mystical Journey. Mucho love!
