Who am I? Why are we here? These are questions I’ve been asking throughout the course of my life – and I’ve received some remarkable answers.
But here’s the catch; just when I think I “know” …the Universe is quick to respond with another lesson. So, I’ve learned to have an open mind, an open heart, and to enjoy the process.
Of all of the answers I’ve received, one thing has remained true and unchanging; Love. Not the mushy “I love you so much,” kind of love that most people associate with the word – love. I’m talking about the “Who am I, I am Love”.
Love has always brought me back to my Self and the knowledge of the interconnectedness of all of life.
When you discover the true nature of “Who you are”, you become empowered. A sense of greatness fills your entire being. It’s as if you’ve finally found the charging station for your soul! Once you plug into the source of energy that sustains you, you feel renewed and ready to enjoy this experience of the human condition.
However, until you plug yourself in, you’re operating on partial battery, and you aren’t aware of your full potential. Here are the signs your battery is low.
You’re tired, depressed, angry and perhaps, disappointed. You keep searching for something that’s missing… You need to recharge. Plug yourself in and get connected to the Source of your power!
When I remember who I am, I know myself as one with everything; God, Universe, Source, Absolute Being, Allah, Divine Being, Holy Spirit, Jah, Jehovah, Lord, Yahweh, etc.. When I affirm my Self as an extension of Love, I experience great joy, abundance and power. Whatever I share, I strengthen.
When I forget who I am, I fall into darkness and mis-create from a place of fear, projecting a sense of separation, lack and judgment, I experience great sadness. Again, what I share, I strengthen.
It’s only when I connect to the oneness of the Universe, I remember this body – this life experience – is an amazing “temporary” gift. I realize, the potential to create is only limited by my awareness and my imagination. Life is a virtual wishing well.
How do you connect? In order to give Love as an extension of who you are, first you have to acknowledge that you ARE Love. Sometimes this is difficult to do because you’re just not “feeling the love.” Your body and mind are amazing tools, at your disposal, to help change your mood. It all starts with your E-motion, as Tony Robbins explains “energy-in-motion;” move your body! Stretch, stand up, go for a walk, clap your hands; do anything to change the E-motion surrounding you. This will get the ball rolling. Next, practice gratitude. Write down 5 things you’re grateful for, every day… find someone to help keep you accountable, and share your list! Once you get started, you will see amazing changes in your life!
I am so grateful to be alive… Look around you today, at the natural beauty that surrounds you. Let the marvels of the season fill the depths of your spirit with the Love it inspires. Love is your power cord. Plug into the Source and experience the wonders of co-creating… you are so much greater than you give yourself permission to be. What do you choose to create today; Love or fear? The choice is yours….
Keep up Now with the stream of higher consciousness and stay connected to the Source.
