When Change is your only constant, know that your Soul is on a voyage to fulfill its highest destiny. You can cooperate or resist the process, but it is inevitable.
In the midst of huge change, your breath is key. When you are feeling stressed and low in energy, your breath will bring you new empowerment. Stopping to take several deep, long breaths throughout the day allows you to be more relaxed and energized.
Know that all is well. The Grace you have funded to this point will create a life of Abundant Beauty.
Behind everyone’s face is a story, a depth, a history that explains why someone is as she or he is, so listen to the other person’s story.
The longer you listen to the story of another person, the deeper you will eventually understand and recognize a common core: the same roots in the other person as in yourself. There then emerges a sense of unity, and differences dissolve and you reach out a hand to the other person. And when many people reach out a hand to one another, a fertile ground is created and love flows to Earth.
From a higher perspective, a higher level, the existence of order and chaos, is a necessary part of the evolution of life.
Many people have found that they experience a deepening, or a deeper sense of self or beingness, immediately after and as a result of having endured a period of chaos. This is sometimes called “the dark night of the soul,” a term from medieval Christianity used to describe the mental breakdown that many mystics experienced prior to awakening spiritually. There was an eruption of disorder, of destruction. Then, out of that, a deeper realization arose.
And although that can be very painful, the strange thing is, it’s precisely there that many humans experience a transcendence. A strange fact is that it almost never happens that people awaken spiritually while they’re in their comfort zone. Or that they become deeper as human beings, which would be a partial awakening. It almost never happens. The place where the evolutionary shift happens, or the evolutionary leap, is usually the experience of disorder in a person’s life.
And so your life then moves between order and disorder. You have both, and they’re both necessary. There’s no guarantee that when chaos erupts this will bring about an awakening or a deepening, but there’s always the possibility. It is an opportunity, but often, it is missed.
So here we are at this time, and our mission is the same: to align with the present moment, with whatever is happening here and now. The upheaval that we’re experiencing at the present time probably will not be the last upheaval that’s going to come on a collective level. However, it is an opportunity—because although this is a time for upheavals, it is also a time for awakening. The two go together. Just as in an individual life, you need adversity to awaken. It’s an opportunity but not a guarantee and is all part of the awakening of human beings and of planetary awakening.
Every Hanukkah is special, and baby’s first Hanukkah is a milestone worth celebrating. It’s an ideal time to gather the people you love together and connect in a meaningful way.
Tonight we are having a party. Like so many other firsts, this is definitely party-worthy! Whether you choose to host a big bash or simply a small gathering of your closest friends and family, your baby’s first Hanukkah is a sweet, can’t-miss occasion perfect for getting everyone together to celebrate the holiday.
Traditional Hanukkah colors are blue, white, gold and silver, and that gives you a lot of room for when it comes to choosing your plates, napkins and other party decor. Shimmering star-shaped ornaments add sparkle to the room.
Lighting the Menorah is one of the key items in any Hanukkah celebration. Every night for eight days, you’ll light a candle to commemorate the miracle of light. If you already have a menorah, great! Get that out ASAP for tonight and set it up in a prominent location.
One of the gifts that you can get for baby’s first Hannukah is a personalized onesie, romper or shirt that doubles as your baby’s party wear. Other fun Hanukkah gifts for babies include “My First Hanukkah” bibs, personalized rattles, a play menorah, Hanukkah menorah blocks or a special dreidel that your baby will play with for years to come.
Open up to new opportunities by realizing and tapping into our vast selves that are always connected to love which is always connected to infinite potentials. Being consciously aware of love, we begin to infuse it into our awareness and allow it to permeate our choices and in our reality.
Everything in life responds to love in the most magical way. Love instantly transforms limitation into limitless possibility and in doing so, changes what was, into what truly can be. Open your heart and allow the magic of love to flow, revealing the beauty that is always present and ready to blossom.
It is a gift to live in the present and to keep bringing ourselves back into this present moment, because the present is our only place of power. It is here that we live from our heart, where our soul’s voice is speaking.
Only when I am in harmony with my spirit do I ever feel free. It has been a huge process of growth to expand into my heart and live from the impulses of my soul. The trust in myself as the extension of my soul’s imperatives brings me into the present time, because it is only here that I can know the truth of my being. In the truth within me is the freedom I desire.
Life is causing us to go deeper into our hearts and find what is true and important for us. Recognizing when we are being asked to speak our deepest truth is an important part of our growth process.
Feeling free to be myself requires that I give myself permission to open my heart to me. At times I need as much encouragement, support and blessing as anyone else. I respond to my loving-kindness and compassion by relaxing and feeling more at home in my body. When I act as my own best friend, giving myself the time and energy I need so I can be in alignment, my world improves. There is freedom to be, do and say what is revealed to me in the moment. I also remember that I have all the time and energy I need and I am fully supported at all times. This is the true freedom.
When we look at what our gifts are, we usually overlook the gift of the loving presence that we can bring to every moment we spend with another. This is what so many are looking for, and it is so amazingly simple to give. We just need to give ourselves permission to be the true authentic, loving person that we are. That gift will feel like true freedom.
Feeling Free to be yourself is the Greatest Gift you can give. When you are feeling free to be yourself, that is the time your light shines the brightest. That is when you are most relaxed and happy, which is the way your Spirit intended you to live.
