Standing in your own wholeness (Holiness)

Love mandala

During the holidays I had lunch with a very good friend of mine. We some how got on the subject of Love and relationships and he made a comment along the lines of “with relationships you have to give up your freedom.” Wait a minute, what? As I contemplated this comment for the next few days I realized there are some who may feel this way as well.

True Love, love from the soul, does not ask you to give up your freedom. Quite the contrary, Love is continuously growing and evolving, it is expansive. True Love encourages one to spread their wings and fly. Anything else being experienced is not True Love, as True Love from our soul, our spirit is unconditional. The Love that most of us have experienced have had conditions attached, and that may have given us a feeling of giving up our freedom.

But one must discover their own inner wholeness. This is a process. When we look to others to find “completeness”, what we are really saying is without you I AM not whole. But in truth we are. When we begin to recognize our own wholeness (holiness), we no longer feel the need to search outside ourselves for someone to fill this need. We stop searching outside of ourselves and begin to experience our internal wholeness. We then begin to raise our energetic vibration. This process is a healing (wholing) within ourselves. We then begin to attract others to us who are experiencing this same process. Our relationships then become one of choice, not desperation from fear of losing that person, or loneliness. When we stand in our own wholeness (holiness), we radiate this to others. We live and lead by example. This is how we change the world. There is a fire within you, a flame waiting to be ignited. Stand up and declare I AM Whole! Affirm this and so it is done.

We are not our “stories”

The last few weeks have been intense!  I have been making a lot of inner discoveries.  The one thing I am gaining clarity about is that we are not our “stories”.   You know, the thoughts that continuously play in our mind like a movie that is set to play on a loop.  Things that sound like “what I have to say is not important, so why would anyone listen to my ideas, so I won’t say anything at all” or “as soon as I do (fill in the blank) then I will start to (fill in the blank again)”.  These are “stories” that we tell ourselves that then manifest as certain patterns or behaviors in our lives.  Usually these “stories” have come from an experience that has happened and we then believe that our “story” is who we are.  This is not the truth.  Who we are is a spark of the Divine Creator.  A BEing so amazing that we cannot logically comprehend our true depth.  But our heart knows.  Our soul guides us to what will ultimately heal us.  I did not say that the journey would be easy, sometimes things can get pretty intense.  But as we move forward into the pain and confront our fears, that is when the magic begins to happen!  Freedom!  As we begin to leave our “stories” behind, we find ourselves feeling lighter.  Then we really begin to soar!  We must begin to ask ourselves the question, am I afraid because I will not be able to accomplish what I set out to do or am I afraid that I will and I will finally have to admit to myself, I AM DIVINE!
