Fine tuning our awareness is the key at this time of great awakening. The greater the awareness and understanding we gain about who we are and who we are not, the more we move into our authentic power. Our role in the unfolding Divine plan that we have all agreed to participate in, is that of fully embracing every aspect of who we are.
There is no question we are now in unprecedented times! The changes and breaking down of the old structures in our lives that no longer serve us - both at a global and personal level - have escalated to intense proportions. Many are becoming “battle weary” as they try to hang on to what is thought to be their livelihood and protect all that they have worked for and built in their lives. And yet, no matter what is done to try and preserve the status quo, it’s a battle that can’t be won.
Everywhere I turn people seem to be struggling to make sense of what they are feeling and the extreme challenges they are faced with in their lives. We appear to be so inundated with just doing the best we can to survive that we have lost sight of what is important to us and our most cherished values and desires. In a strange way, life appears to be interfering with how we think it should be, and so we fight against it. Ironic, really.
Freedom is what we all seek in our lives, no matter how we each define it. There is no question that it is a universal desire regardless of our culture, religion, beliefs, status, wealth, diversity and uniqueness.
The transition from fear-based living into being the authentic expression of the
Divine that is within us continues to be a test to our resolve and ability to
recognize ourselves in everything around us.
What is the purpose of anger, you ask? It is the crucible from which freedom can be born. It is the compounded welling up of trapped emotion about all things. We are emotional beings for a reason, so we can truly process our experiences – every colour and nuance of experience in this life.
While it is hard for your thinking mind to conceive, it is such an extraordinary time to be alive! Keep telling yourself this through the thicks and thins of everyday life when it seems that it is otherwise. Do not attach to the great ills of society. Yes, they are the reality for some and yes what you hear on the news is tragic, but has this been your experience today?

As we continue to awaken from our slumber and begin to realize there is so much more to who we are and why we are here, the one question that rises to the forefront of our minds is: what is my true purpose in this world? This is the big one for most seekers…searching for meaning to our existence and our role on this planet, often generating unrest, stress and anxiety in the process.
This time of year dredges up much pain and sadness held in the recesses of our hearts. It is a profound opportunity to heal and transform those bruises into a lightened, expanded heart. Compassion is a fire that heals your own and another’s heart. Remember it is our minds that continue to batter our hearts by recurring thoughts that become a form of self-flagellation. Why do we hurt ourselves so?
