Your Heart’s True Desire vs. What You Think You Desire

flower

I consider myself a loyal person.

That’s why when my sister called to tell me she was going into labor, I was in the car quicker than she could finish her sentence.

When I went into labor, I expected the same treatment.

I expected her to drop everything just like I did. I expected her bags to be packed (just like mine), and for her to be willing to stay the night, if that’s what I needed from her, but she didn’t.

She instead decided that showing up for work was more important. I, of course, was hurt. I felt like I didn’t matter enough to her for her to drop what she was doing to see me through that time in my life, but my perception was wrong. 

I didn’t notice that my perception was off until I was sitting in my hospital room and I noticed how peaceful it was.

My hubby was breathing and preparing himself for the arrival of our son and the nurses were quietly walking in and out to monitor the baby’s heartbeat and mine. As I sat there in peace, I noticed the perfection of the moment.

I noticed that what I thought I wanted and what I really wanted, were two very different things. 

I really wanted my son’s birth to be between me, my significant other, and the earth angels (the doctors and nurses), that were called to bring him into the world.

I realized that I didn’t want or need anyone else to be there, but the one who had seen me at my most vulnerable and that knew how important the birth of my son was to me.

I also realized how important it was for my significant other to have his privacy as well. You see, he had lost a child from a previous relationship, and this was a very momentous and somewhat frightening occasion for him as well.

The universe had lined up circumstances and events that led me and my significant other to what we really wanted and not to what we thought we wanted. God saw the bigger picture. God knew that I wouldn’t want my sister’s job to be in jeopardy and also knew that I didn’t want anyone in the room that would be worried or resentful for being there.

The birth of my son was perfect.

The people that were supposed to be there – were there, and it turned out better than I could have imagined. I just needed to let go of the idea that something was going wrong, and open to the fact that things were really working in my favor.

So if you are going through something right now that doesn’t seem to be working out the way that you had planned, just realize that you are on your way to something better. You are in good hands and you are being guided to your heart’s real desire and not just to what you think you desire.

Is Arguing Ever A Good Thing?

arguing

You scream.

She screams.

You say something mean.

She returns the favor.

She digs her claws in deep, opening wounds that you thought were gone.

You retaliate and back her into a corner.

Then f-bombs, and tears, and frustration follows.

No one has heard the other. No one has listened. Ready to just be right or to make your next point. But no one during the entire argument got what the other person was trying to say.

So why are we so intrigued with the temptation to step into the pit of fire that we know we should have stayed away from? The pit of fire that once you’re in, there’s no turning back – it has you.

In the midst of it, you just want it to stop.

All the pain, all the hurtful remarks, all the deep seated hatred that no one spoke about until the fight. Why do we put ourselves through it?

If the two of you can’t hear each other and if nothing gets settled, what is the purpose of arguing? Is it ever a good thing?

I think arguing serves no other purpose other than to help you release.

Sometimes you have to stand up for yourself, sometimes there is negative energy around that you can no longer put up with – you have to call it out, and sometimes you have to trust that it’s the right time to release someone from your life.

Getting some old stuff out so that you can make way for the new, is an essential part of your growth.

Somewhere along the line, you realize that you are two different people. Neither one of you is wrong – you are just on two different paths and aren’t right for each other at the time.

So you say your piece, and at the end when all the dust settles, you breathe it out, pray it out, meditate it out, and let it go.

You should never ever let anyone make you feel like bettering yourself or wanting more for your life is a crime, and if it takes a couple of f-bombs and other aggressive words to get that point across than so be it.

But what we do have to realize is that the argument is never about the other person. It’s for you to clarify what you will accept and what you won’t, what you are willing to put your time and attention into and what you are not, and what you are willing to hold on to and what you need to let go of.

That is the purpose of an argument, and it’s only a good thing because sometimes it helps you clarify and release things that are no longer serving you. It helps you release the people that don’t appreciate who you are as a person or what you’ve done for them.

After you have seen your side and her side, and you realize that you two are not good for each other, it’s time to move on.

I am not referring to just familial relationships, this could be any relationship that is taking your time and attention off of what’s important. If everything is an argument and there is no harmony there, it may be time for you to just move on to something new and better for you.

Not out of spite, not out of disrespect, but out of quite the contrary. You move on because you respect YOU, and you don’t have to put up with anything that makes you feel like less of yourself, saddened, or rejected. PERIOD.

So you move on.

Without any hatred or ill will towards the other, but also without you feeling like you have to be ashamed, embarrassed, or down on yourself either.

Stand up for yourself, and if that means that you have to let someone go in your life that can’t see your light – then so be it.

Blending Our Sexual Nature w/ Spirituality – Can It Be Done?

We are sexual creatures by nature.

By sexual, I don’t mean that we go around sleeping with a bunch of people. When I say sexual, I mean creative, indulgent, sensual creatures. I am not just referring to the act of physical sex.

I find my self struggling sometimes with being sexual by nature, and then in my work being “spiritual”.

I think sometimes we equate spirituality with sacrifice, giving, nurturing others, and being submissive.

We rarely equate spirituality with the flow of receiving, indulging, and accepting.

The problem that it creates, is one where you find yourself giving, giving, and giving, and then when it comes time to receive the other side of the flow – you find yourself blocked. Sexual energy in totality is not just about giving and creating, it is also about receiving and enjoying.

I am sensual, I am deep, I love intimacy, but something about that approach to say “my work” feels wrong to me (too personal, too open, and too much sharing).

There is a part of myself that is afraid to share in my work because I might appear to be “too open” or “too out there” in my thoughts or my methods of sharing.

In other words, I feel like I can’t be the full “me”.

I find myself denying a very intimate part of my nature because I am in the spiritual field.

With the intuitive work that I do, I believe that I am required to have a level of openness that can really penetrate to the core of people, but what do you do when you feel like you have to cover that very sensual and private part of yourself because you are in the “spiritual business”.

I guess I am just trying to sort some thoughts out here.

I think to some, my energy comes across as awkward or mysterious. It might come across that way because I really do want those soul-shaking conversations, deep thoughts, and intimacy in my work, but there is a part of me that also holds back because I feel that level of intimacy should not be touched in “spiritual work”.

Does anyone relate to what I am speaking about?

Any thoughts?

7 Steps To Open Your Heart and Receive

Spring is my favorite season. 

To me, it symbolizes letting go of the old and inviting the new. It’s a time of renewed faith, hope, blossoming, and fruition.

To invite the energy of this new season, I thought it would be nice to create a 7 step process that will help you open to receive the newness that this beautiful season has to offer.

It’s all about letting go of your past perceived failures and flaws, and opening up to the newness that is trying to make its way into your experience.

So here are 7 steps that will help point you in the right direction of manifesting newness into your life.

1. Clearing

In order to welcome the new, you must clear out any old or preconceived notions that you have about yourself or your ability to create in your life. You may have been creating by default before, or you may not have given yourself permission to fully dream and let go, but now is the time. Drop any ideas about yourself that do not support the state of being that you would like to reside in.

2. Realign With Your Heart’s Desire

What is it that you really want? It’s okay to say it. It’s okay to acknowledge that you may need help around the house, you may want more money, or to live more comfortably. You may want to reside in a place with warmer climate or attract a new mate. Whatever it is, don’t be ashamed of it. Take this moment to declare what you want. Write it down. Acknowledge it as sacred, and know that because it is a true heart’s desire, it can make its way to you.

3. Understand That There Is A Path 

Everything that you really desire has a way of making itself to you. The most beneficial state of being to be in is one of expectation. Understand that there is a path available for you to get what you really desire. You may not see it right this moment, but just the acknowledgment of the path is a start. It’s a welcoming state, and helps you let go of resistance.

4. Pay Attention To The Signs

Your work is not to make things happen. Your work is to acknowledge when you are on the path to it. When people come out of nowhere and start talking about the thing that you desire, smile and know that that’s a sign that you are on the path to it. Pay attention to any flashes of insight that you receive. Pay attention to your intuition and any strong urges that you might receive to move in the direction of something.

The thing that you desire – desires you too, and it’s a natural thing for you to create. It’s just that you may not have consciously been aware of your power to determine what you want for your life, and actually get it.

You just have to pay attention to the signs that are leading you to it. Try to relax and play with this part, and just let the signs come to you. When you try to get too involved you mess up the playfulness of things.

5. Surround Yourself With Things That Support Your Desire 

Try to keep yourself in a good mood no matter what. Surround yourself with people who are doing what you love to do. Go to the places that support your dream, or write about what it will feel like once you achieve your dream. Try to do things that support your dream.

That means staying in a good mood and knowing that you can achieve it, even if the way hasn’t shown itself to you yet. Try to remain positive about the outcome. Here is a simple meditation that will help you align with positivity.

When you keep yourself in a positive state of being, you are more open to receiving the signs quicker. You are tuned into the messages that are trying to reveal themselves to you when you are open and receptive.

6. Give Freely Without The Expectation Of Receiving

I know this is difficult for some people, but try to just give without the expectation that you will receive something in return. Think of all the times you needed guidance, or wished something special would happen to you. What if you started creating those kind of experiences for other people?

They say that you get what you give, and if you create beautiful experiences for others, the quicker you are able to attract those same kinds of circumstances into your own experience.

7. Have Fun 

Play around with things. Ease up. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Sometimes we get so frustrated when it seems like things aren’t going our way, but I am here to tell you that frustration just keeps you stuck in the cycle. Try to ease up a little bit. You are going to be okay. You will have what you really desire one way or another. Let’s just try to consciously create rather than having things happen by default. It’s beautiful when you feel your connection to all that’s around you.

I hope you have fun welcoming the new!

What Pregnancy Taught Me About Letting Go

letting go

I am a control freak.

Most of the time I want to know where, when, why, and how something is going to happen.

I am the kind of person that gets anxiety from waiting for surprises and gets very annoyed when I can’t figure out what’s coming next.

Let me tell you that pregnancy took the “control freak” in me and humbled it.

There was nothing that I could do from the moment that I found out I was pregnant. I was ecstatic, but very much afraid that I would have no control over the process.

I would have to spend 9 months not knowing what my surprise looked like. I would have to wait to hold my baby in my arms. I would have to go to sleep not knowing if everything was going to be okay, and wake up to anxiety attacks because I wasn’t sure if I could support my child, and if I was fit to be a good mother.

All that waiting, anxiety, and not knowing, and there wasn’t a damn thing that I could do about it.

Life is like that too. You build a business or try to follow your dreams and you have no idea what the outcome is going to be. You have to spend months – sometimes years waiting for your dreams to grow, but just like having a child, you have to trust in the unseen.

You just have to hope for the best, keep yourself in good health, allow yourself to grow, and face the challenges that come along with trying to nurture something into the world. I had no control over my baby’s development. I didn’t know how many fingers and toes he would be born with. I didn’t know if I was going to have all the stuff that I needed to make him comfortable when he was born.

But because it was my heart’s desire to bring a child into this world, everything that I needed showed up.

I realized that I didn’t have to be so afraid, and that I didn’t have control over the process anyway. All I could do was relax into what had the potential to be a great experience if I let it.

I have to tell you that I let it be the experience that I believed in, and it was wonderful.

I now get to see my gift (my son) everyday. Everyday there is something new that I love about him. I allowed myself to receive what I really desired – regardless of not knowing exactly what the outcome was going to be.

If there is one thing that I want you take away from this post, it’s that life is unpredictable sometimes. You cannot control every aspect of it, and it’s exhausting to try. All you can do is expect the best, trust in the people that are around you to do what they came to do, trust in your ability to nurture yourself into the flow of receiving, and then watch the experience manifest into something beautiful.

Try The Angels Out – Go Ahead They Won’t Bite

Angels

My spirit guides are funny. 

I can feel them sometimes when I am angry – just sitting in the background waiting. It’s almost like they are watching a child throw a tantrum, and then after a few minutes of entertaining themselves, they will then say, “okay come here and calm down a little”.

They try to reach me, and when I don’t listen they just sit back and watch me, eat their popcorn (kidding), and wait for me to ease up. Once I ease up and allow the space to receive the answers, they are right there to address my concerns.

Don’t we All get like that sometimes? 

We get so stuck in our ways, so stubborn, and so unwilling to accept the help that is right in front of our face. I do it from time to time, and I know that you may do it from time to time too.

This stubbornness comes up especially when we are entering new parts of our experience. Think about it. When we are going after what we really want or trying to follow our dreams, we start this cycle of self sabotage.

We tell ourselves that we aren’t good enough, we don’t deserve better lives, we aren’t educated enough, or that we don’t have enough time or resources to make our dreams come true. The truth is however, you are just giving yourself a really hard time. You don’t have to do that, but sometimes we just go there by default.

It’s an old system.

We are use to avoiding things that make us feel uncomfortable – especially when it comes to following our dreams, but what if the process wasn’t as painful as you believe it is? What if it’s liberating? Try stepping out on faith just this once. Trust your intuition.

The angels are here to offer you a space.

The space is open for you to be honest about how you truly feel about yourself. Tell them what hurts you, tell them what’s frustrating you, and how you truly see yourself, and the angels will respond with love, sincerity, and attention.

They aren’t going to tell you just what you want to hear. They are going to show you where your perception of yourself may be a little off. They are going to let you know what they truly see from their perspective. Sometimes you just have a difficult time accepting your goodness and your good qualities. I understand. That’s why we are here to help.

It’s not difficult to allow this positive energy into your space.

It’s not difficult to allow something new. The only difficulty, is holding on to old outdated ways of looking at things when there is help and assistance all around.

So go ahead, tell the angels what you feel, let it out, get it off of your chest. At the very least, you will have friends there that will listen and respectfully reply to your concerns.

I can also assure you that you will receive so much more than that when speaking to the spirit guides known as Ray. They are here and willing to help you, but you have to be willing to allow the help and to receive the answers you have been waiting for.

Go ahead, give them a try. If you need to know more about Ray before deciding to work with them – you can read some of their messages here or see some of their video messages here.

If you are ready to give them a try – follow me here.

We can help you see things differently, but you have to be willing to accept the help. It’s here for you.

Every Moment Is Brand New

New Moment

This Post Was Inspired FROM A Chapter In the New Book i am writing -(Soul Guidance – Finding Your Way Home).

Where do you feel you’ve gone wrong? Where does your heart ache for a new beginning? Why does your past have you so tight in its grip?

Realize One Thing…

Every moment is brand new. {Renee “Soul Writer” Brooks}

 

No matter what you feel you’ve done wrong, you have a new moment right now to make it right. 

The “rightness” of something has nothing to do with other people’s opinions of it.

The “rightness” of any experience in your life has only to do with you and your peace with what is.

You may not have even made a mistake, but your feelings about it are what causes the dark cloud of regret to hang over your head. You may not have even made the wrong decision, but the weight you carry around about your choice, is what causes you to feel burdened. In any moment, you can make the choice to move in the direction of what feels better.

Every moment is brand new.

The purpose of these words, is for you to see that you don’t have to wallow around in regret. You don’t have to punish yourself for anything that you feel you have done wrong. You have a brand new moment – with each new breath that you take.

If you have been waiting for permission to let go of the past, to forgive yourself, or to get a do over – this is it. You have been granted permission.

Remember from this point forward however, that it is best that you move in the direction of your true spirit, of your true calling, of what your integrity says you should do, according to your own morals and standards, and not according to the will of others.

Moving according to the will of others may be what got you in trouble and in a low place the first, second, and third time around.

There is liberation in the understanding that every moment is brand new.

You can choose from this brand new moment to redirect your energy, turn negative thoughts around, feel things out a bit more, say no when your gut wants to say no, take your time if you feel you need to, and try again, if that’s what the situation calls for.

Once you realize the newness of every moment, you will feel lighter and easier about your life.

The next time that a difficult situation comes around and presents itself to you, you’ll be working from a new understanding. You won’t feel pressured, or hurried, or like your choice is so heavy that it cannot be reworked.

Life will always throw you a new scenario, a new piece, a new opportunity, and a new experience.

Your work is only to recognize the new moment, and follow your inner promptings to rise and meet it.

Nothing is in vain.

Either you grow or you learn.

Things can also change in an instant, but it takes a shift first. That shift comes from within – from a change of perspective, from permission to move on, and from forgiving yourself.

Release the burden right now.

Every moment is brand new.

Thank you for reading!

Freedom Friday Introduction

Set Yourself Free

Welcome To Freedom Friday!

Sounds Cool – But What Is It?

Freedom Friday is where you get to come clean about the things that are heavy on your heart. Every Friday you get to come to this space and release any feelings that you may have pent up inside. This space is not a space for you to be judged or criticized. It’s not a space where you will be graded on your writing or red-marked for your spelling or grammar.

This space was created for you to release your pain through writing, to write about the things that give you a sense of freedom, and to express yourself freely. Sometimes we hold things in, and it winds up hindering our truest expression. The burden of such things weighs on us like a ton of bricks. Freedom Friday is a day where you have permission to lay that burden down.

This space is a space where you get to acknowledge your feelings, express them, make amends with them, and then set them free. It’s a purification exercise that I believe will free up some more space for your creative expression to flow more abundantly.

Are you ready to cleanse yourself of the feelings you have been holding inside? If so, don’t forget to click the “leave a comment” button at the top of the post, and share your story. If you prefer to share the post on your own blog please be sure to add the words Freedom Friday to your post & link back to this post.

Thank you for reading!
