I was relaxing on the beach yesterday reading a good book. I saw
myself in the main character. I was rooting for her, wondering how she
was going to resolve her challenges. I thought about my current issues
and I sat for a moment wondering how it would all work out. I am unable
to see how it will unfold, although I trust that all will be good in the
end. I reminded myself of all the insurmountable issues I’ve overcome.
All of the times that I thought, how the heck will I ever accomplish
that?! So why wouldn’t my current situation resolve itself?! Whatever
necessary steps I needed to set things in motion I’ve taken. Once we do
what needs to be done we must let it go and leave the how’s and when’s
to the Universe.

I listen to my intuition and guidance. I follow
my heart. I live in a mindful state of awareness and when certain
people, situations, or opportunities are placed before me, I find I
connect with just what I need, when I need it.

I choose to live
my life filled with conscious awareness. It is a vow I took many years
ago to mindful living in all ways, always. It is not something that
occurs over night, it takes cultivation and awareness. It is a process
that encompasses all aspects of our life. From the foods we eat, the
places we go, the people and things we surround ourselves with and
clearing out what we do not need or use in our life.

I find I
speak far less than I used to, and listen far more. Oftentimes I hear
what someone is really saying not by the words they utter but by the
they emit. When we get still we find we don’t require as much of
anything. We find contentment in the little things in life. We are
connected to the natural rhythms of life.

We begin by clearing
out the clutter in our lives. We tend to have far more "things" in our
lives than we need. Relationship that are not serving us any longer,
people who bring us down or leave us feeling downright lousy. Clothes we
don’t wear anymore, things we don’t need, expired and medicine,
drawers jammed full where we can’t find what we need, more obligations
than we can handle, and objects that take up space that are devoid of
meaning and usefulness.

Cutting back on making too many
commitments and giving ourselves enough time to do whatever it may be we
need to do, in a less hurried, less frantic way. Whatever we are doing
deserves our full attention. When we are spending time with someone,
really focusing on the person we are with and what we are doing. When we
are eating, enjoy the experience of the food and the people we are
with. Pay attention to who or what is in front of us. It seems we can
get so preoccupied with what needs to get done that we miss the most
significant of moments. Making time for quiet solitude that gives our
soul and opportunity to connect in deeper ways. It is a way to nurture
our being and nourish our soul.

We are in a very physical part of
our growth or ascension process. All of us are going through
restructuring in one way or another. Whether through issues with where
we live, mortgages, finances, health, and security. We are having to
really pay attention to what is in front of us and take care of our
basic needs.

It can be a very sticky mess dealing with our
finances and oftentimes we will ignore or avoid it until it is out of
control. The Universe is pushing us out of our comfort zone so that we
are forced, at every level, to deal with this stuff. I found as I clear
up my financial situation things become less complicated and easier to
handle. I become more peaceful and less stressed. When we live within
our budget and really utilize our resources there is a feeling of
empowerment. I find that when I make a purchase it is for something I
really need and want. I connect with the energy of what I am buying and
feel the worth of it. Not just in dollars and cents but in its
usefulness.

Our country’s predicament is due to the fact that we
have spent more than we have for far too long. It’s catching up on us.
Its a good thing that we are reevaluating our finances individually and
globally!

Our bodies are adjusting to all of the changes on our
planet. Those who are sensitive feel the intensity at a cellular level.
We are feeling the shifts and it is effecting us energetically,
emotionally, mentally and physically. I am finding I need to drink far
more water, get plenty of rest, take many more supplements and spend
plenty of time in nature. I have been so affected by the natural
disasters that are occurring. I wonder what’s going on with me, only to
watch the news and find validation.

I have many inquiring about
dream interpretations as our dreams are sending us strong messages.
Taking time to honor your body at this time is very important. Waves of
fatigue, lack of motivation, and a deep desire to go inward is
prevalent. We are internally adjusting to the waves of light coming to
our planet through these occurrences. In order to sustain this time we
need to be flexible and bend in the wind like an old oak tree, rather
than trying to hold on for dear life to the old ways.

Being
mindful creates opportunities for a more authentic way of living and
connecting. We are in the process of a major turning point individually
and globally as we gear up for 2012 and beyond. It is not about the
scary predictions of the end times, it is clearing out the old to make
way for the new. A way of life that is more harmonious and in alignment
with all that is. In order for that to occur we must be the
consciousness we wish to see in the world.

Prayer

I am ready to live in conscious awareness.

I choose to be
mindful of my thoughts, my actions, and my reactions.

I pace
myself in my daily activities so that I don’t over-commit and therefore
prevent myself from completing any of my goals in a thorough, complete
way.

I give my full attention to the person I am with, the food I
am eating, and the task I am doing.

I make time for myself to
relax and do things I enjoy.

I connect with my body, mind, and
soul to listen to what it needs and thus nourish and nurture myself.

I am one with all that is.

And so it is.

Amen.
