Fear and Surrender

There has come a moment in my life where I realize that I may always experience some fear inside; regardless of the personal work I do or how vibrant my prayer and meditation life may be. It is an aspect of being human. It keeps me connected to Divine care and source. I remain humbled by this fear and also inspired by more own courage and commitment to "keep at" this spiritual life.

The lessons and reminders of lessons of old is a constant. My connection to Divine guidance is both vibrant and at times listless and dull. I choose to live within the paradox of constant surrender to whatever is. It is in this present moment where I can welcome Spiritual guidance and direction into all areas of my life. During the day to day consistent practices that deepen trust, intuition and transformation is where I find the courage to embrace my fear, surrender it and take action aligned with my commitments and passions in life. In doing so, I honor my Divine Purpose and make a difference by being of service to all.

It's not about having no fear. It is about embracing my fear, connecting with Divine Source and trusting the guidance that comes in the midst of the fear.

Blessings on your journey of fear, faith and surrender,

Made a decision....

The principles of 12 step spirituality, when applied to living day to day, keep us connected to our own personal power and the unlimited power of the Divine. Once we "make a decision...." to turn any situation over to our Higher Power, we release the outcome, relax into knowing this Power has our best at heart and open to the synchronistic events that continually point us in the direction of Divine guidance and care.

We begin with doing our part, however. Our part is spending time in prayer and meditation daily. Our part is bold self-care behaviors. Our part is putting forth effort in the direction of our dreams and desires. Our part is seeking support and aligning ourselves with like-minded people. Our part is seeing that we are powerless over others.

When we "make a decision to turn our will and lives over the care of God and we understand Her or Him" it is after we have done our part and sought out what we have a choice about and what we must let go of.

We are never alone. The 12 steps give us tools for living a spiritual life. Once our own addictive behaviors and dynamics are addressed and arrested, we become open to the promises of the 12 steps. When we release our own co-dependency and over focus on others, accepting responsibility for ourselves, we open to a relationship with a Higher Power and ourselves. The miracles of living a Divinely guided, purpose and destiny focused life become the norm of our existence.

All my love,
