It takes pure perseverance to keep to one’s hopes and dreams alive - as LIFE gets fast and furious.
You may have a picture in your mind of your ideal life – then life gets in the way!
Now, your hopes and dreams ARE real.
However, they clearly need to be DEEPLY INTEGRATED in your heart, BEFORE they emerge in your reality fully formed.
Let’s take an insightful look at this.
INTEGRATEDWhat does ‘integrated’ mean?
After 40 years of spiritual training, I have found that when we feel deeply into our heart and then have an idea, or from that deep place remember a long lost dream from childhood – these realities can manifest quite quickly.
However IF your deep emotional self has not yet formed a relationship with an idea – an emotional relationship, that idea or dream may not match your TRUE DESIRE - and you can find yourself frustrated with your life.
– And this is the key.
Your authentic TRUE DESIRE may be to simply stop everything in your busy life and to rest.
Maybe your true desire is to do absolutely nothing – for a long long time. To recuperate and rejuvenate.
If you are a ‘doer’ who loves new creative projects, and you regularly birth new ideas - and the pile of ideas gets higher and higher on your desk… your true hidden longing may be to stop all action.
To stop all new emerging ‘latest’ projects, and simply ‘be’.
MAGICAnd then – magic happens.
In the ‘being’ - more creativity and more ideas are birthed.
However in this quiet and healing pause - emerges the REAL HOPE –
And it is the hope for love.
For loving yourself – just for a minute.
Or for a week, or a year. To stop and relax.
SO that your deepest self is allowed to speak to your conscious self.
Stopping all activity is MUCH more productive in the true soul satisfaction arc of your life.
Stopping creates momentum.
And momentum is birthed from connection to your deepest self-love and self-respect.
Momentum IS real and measured – because WHEN it is birthed from your deepest connection to self, others’ demands and agendas suddenly are not prioritized.
There is a recognition that this lifetime matters.
And that the ONLY choice in any moment that is correct and soul-satisfying emerges directly from your true deepest heart and soul.
Imagine a life where ALL your life moments emerge from YOUR deepest heart connection!
Where you consciously recognize that all circumstances in your life gift you a choice of either capitulating to outside demands, or choosing from your heart.
LIFETIME PRACTICEIs this a practice of a lifetime? To stay connected to your own inner spirit so that each micro-moment is ‘owned’ by you? Owned by your heart?
So that your HEART is living the life IT chooses – moment by moment.
This may sound like way too much of a tall order for a mere human. However, this just might be THE true focus of your soul in this lifetime.
If you imagine your soul standing before you in your mind’s eye, and in a gentle quiet moment ASK it what it would love you to do in this lifetime – you may find this key to your life is one of its major requests of you!
So….. is this valid and valuable? I think so.
THE MOST VALUABLE KEYImagine a practice where you alone have responsibility to OPEN your inner awareness to your HEART desires and preferences – each moment of each day.
Your heart may be hurt, it may be a long lost part of you that hasn’t been touched or loved or listened to for some time.
This need not be a reason to not START ‘being’ with it.
ASKING it what it wants - regularly.
BUILDING a relationship with its joy – NOTICING its joy.
WHAT triggers its joy?
And beginning a gentle simple program of love – for that divine part of you. That IS the real you!
SACRED PRACTICE If you have children that demand your constant attention – give that attention….
However – LEARN to LOVE yourself exactly in that moment when you choose to answer their needs.
Learn to step back inside yourself and feel – in that split second – HOW are you feeling?
ARE you feeling angry, powerless, fearful, weary, overwhelmed, sad, unloved, lost or depressed?
IF you are, begin changing that moment when you want to give up on yourself.
Begin changing that moment when you give up on yourself.
Change your INTERNAL reflex – right in that moment.
Yes your feelings are real – however there is a choice in there too…
And the choice is to be REAL.
To be honest – at least with yourself, if not someone outside of you.
That moment of TOUCHING your own heart – gets you out of jail.
This is a UNIVERSAL LAW.
The instant you NOTICE your truth – your personal universe bends to your desire.
Try this and notice the shifts quietly changing around you – as you practice SELF-TRUTH.
SELF-TRUTH is YOUR weapon against fear, and a life lived in powerlessness to others.
This is a potent statement.
Yet when you try this process out in your own life you will notice how genuinely powerful this universal law truly is.
It is the ultimate reflex of the universe – which waits for YOU to grow and evolve.
You may well be alone in your personal classroom – just yourself and ‘god’…
Your decision to evolve and grow your inner self-love despite your circumstances WILL be rewarded.Your personal classroom is designed just for you – it matches your secret soul needs to learn particular lessons, peculiar to you and the journey of your soul.
However this SELF-TRUTH practice lies at the core of all lessons.
For the simple reason that the ultimate truth is – that you ARE alone in this short lifetime.
And this time on Earth is for YOU to uncover your core inner power – despite your circumstances.

These intelligent beings understand the overview. And the ultimate goal of our souls and our lives.
Blessings to you!
