Breathe. Relax your body. Relax your mind. Set your intent as you begin each day more firmly upon your warrior’s path of heart, the one you envision though it may not be your reality yet. Reality is what you make it and a warrior knows this, that a light step, a happy heart, a relaxed mind, and a healing breath is all it takes to shift a weary spirit. Set your intent to follow the warrior’s way and with every step and every breath create the world you so desire. All of this is within your power. You create your own inner and outer realities. As within, so without. Take back your power, and use it in a most profound way.

Sending you love,

Life offers so many options, so many choices, so many decisions to make, but really there is only one path, a path with heart, the path where the heart leads, the path that feels so right that there is no doubt that it is the only path to take. Upon a path with heart, options, choices, and decisions are easily determined by asking the heart to guide, for the heart already knows its path with heart, every step of the way. And a warrior knows to trust it, for a warrior knows that a path with heart is the path of fulfillment, not just full of promise but promising, not just hopeful but full of hope, not just possible but full of possibilities that are aligned with every heart-centered step. Is your path a path with heart? Only the heart knows.

Intend the change so desired and with certainty act as if it has already occurred. In this manner ingrain in body and mind, in every action, the new you; the you long envisioned now alive and interactive. In every move you make, in every step you take, act as if you are the changed self. Pretty soon you’ll notice that the changed self, so longed for, has actually come to pass, been there all along, just waiting for you to invite it to participate in life. Now isn’t that magical?

You Are Not Special

Nothing is original. Everything has already been created, dreamed, invented, constructed, designed, written, and delivered. When you can understand that, you can understand that you are not special, that everything is impersonal. Any yet, if you can pull out of the ether one of those dreams, one of those creations, and bring it to manifestation, then you have done yourself and all of humanity a great service, for everything that lives in the ethers, all those dreams, have value.

Without owning, give the creative its due. Even the recapitulation of your own life is the retrieving of a dream once dreamed, as equally impersonal as any other dream. Give it its due, its impersonal due, and then, without attachment, move on, reaching for another new dream. For you are not special. You are just another dream, plucked from the ethers.

This is what I plucked from the ethers today, and without attachment, I send it back to the dream that we are all dreaming.

Sending you love,

Your real goal is wholeness and freedom, wholeness within yourself, all your fragmented parts brought safely home, and freedom from fear. Your fragmented selves are all the secrets you tell yourself, all the lies you uphold about yourself. And your fear rules you, keeping you safely ensconced in your secrets and lies. Accept your wholeness, all the parts of yourself you do not like, that you reject. And acquiesce to your fears; confront them, and in the process find your wholeness and your freedom. Only then will you truly know what it means to be all that you can be. Only then will you truly know what love is. And only then will you truly have achieved something, the real work of a lifetime.

Sending you love,
