Open To Grace

In my Saturday class – 10:30-12 on March 11th.  Make life easier and sign up here.

The Dance of the Divine is really working its magic on me right now, pushing my conception of what I thought I could handle, of my own strength, of my own capacity for Speaking My Truth and Standing in My Light.  My work in this phase of the Dance is to be open; not to be distracted by self-doubt, not to be skeptical and self-defeating, not to hold my breath and wait for the other (the next…?) shoe to drop.

Oh no. This time is about building the container to hold the Shakti – the Unlimited Creative Potential on Consciousness. It is about doing my absolute best from moment to moment to sustain myself as an open, willing, and receptive vessel for the creative power of the Universe to work its magic.  But I have to make the choice: I have to keep the doors to my heart open. I have to keep an attentive ear to the song of my heart.  And I have to be as patient and loving towards myself–when I inevitably forget, close down, fall short–as the Universe is towards me (which shows Itself in the form of those around me who are holding me with love and patience).

This work of healing, of consistently wiping the mirror of my consciousness clean of the specks of illusion which block me from seeing my own true nature, it is no joke. It is the work of a lifetime (possibly more than one…) and it is work that I want to do. It is a freedom that I want for myself. It starts by being Open to Grace. From moment to moment. Breath to breath.

Being open to healing, true freedom, and abundance.
Like I said, the work of a lifetime.
