Prayers For Those We Love

image

Our prayers make a difference!!

We may not always have the magic words to “make it all better”.    But our single prayer to surround those we love in waves of Peace, Truth, and Love does make a difference!!

These heart-felt prayers bring comfort to those we cherish as they navigate through their own soul’s journey.   They whisper to each bright loved one…..and let’s them know that they’re not alone.

On a soul level….those we pray for sense that there is great support and epic cheers of encouragement leading them on!!

Each breath and step may sometimes appear a bit drawn out for those in the midst of soul expansion and light-filled transformation…………but if we (who care deeply) can hold a loving prayer of Peace and Gentle Experience for them…..I believe that we’ll support their journey in a very real way.

Believe in the Power of Prayer my friends!!    It may be exactly what that precious soul most needs. ♥

In Joy and Ever-expanding Faith,

Remaining Open and Receptive To All Expressions of Love

burst

As deeply as you wish to Love passionately…..can you also sense that you may be resisting the very Love you pray for??

Today I’m speaking of the sweet and beautiful Love that flows through all potential moments, experiences, and relationships!!   This Love is beyond any single description or definition.    It simply is that gift of intoxicating joy, insight, peace, anticipation, connectiveness, acceptance, laughter, and inspiration that you find in all moments.    It tells your deepest spirit that you are loved, honored, and of purpose in this great big web of life.    It reminds us that we are inter-acting with every other living vibration upon this earth.

So…….I wonder….as I walk through my journey each day with a prayer for genuine Love in my heart……….am I also allowing mySelf to BE open and expressive to that Love in all its potential forms??      Or……am I pre-judging and limiting where that Love is worthy of coming from….at some unseen level of my being??

Today I realize that “I” am still a bit protective towards the energies I entwine with.    I dance to and fro….maneuvering playfully to discern which moments will (at some future point that is yet to be determined) offer true and genuine Love in some way.

How crazy is that??    If it is “yet to be determined”…………………..I may be missing out on a whole lot of intoxicating beauty and wonder on those paths that I’ve pre-judged as imperfect or less-than-supportive.

That makes me a bit sad.

So I remind mySelf of the greatest truth.    I can be no less than safe, secure, and protected in all moments!!!     There is no need to shield myself from any “unworthy” elements….in fear of not receiving my due rewards.  (((Smile)))

If i walk into each experience fully in Love with the beauty that “I AM”……..no outer source can shake my personal bliss!!

There is never need for protection………………………and yet…..we always have the right to choose that which feels right and purposeful in all moments!!!      The trick is to make sure that we are choosing out of Love…..not out of Fear!!

Today I welcome all expressions of wonder-filled LOVE to find me……………..and Love me!!!    I am open and receptive to the ever-flowing BEAUTY that can be!! ♥

In JOY and Sweet Gratitude,

Birthing Our Physical Reality Through Spiritual BEingness!!

chakra

Do you hold a belief that our physical Selves are limited by the structured form they hold??

It’s quite easy to see our physical bodies and realities as broken, weak, and inferior in this society that continuously focuses on pain and disease.

But…..what if I told you that the pain and disease we perceive is only a reflection of the beliefs we hold within!!     What if I told you that as we begin to genuinely Trust and Believe in the POTENTIAL our bodies and realities hold………they will transform and re-generate at a core level to authentically reflect our new beliefs!!

Many of us have lived by seeing our Spiritual Lives as separate from our Physical Lives.    We naturally seek spiritual Bliss and Peace…in order to rise above and survive the density of our physical journey.     But if we continue to see these two powerful creative energies as separate…then our beliefs will continue to envision and support a limited physical experience!!

We easily allow our hearts to soar in infinite measure through Prayer and Meditation.     We joyfully welcome irrational and form-defying Miracles into our lives and easily accept them as True and Valid……..because we trust that the spiritual realms are far superior to the physical realms we know.

But even that belief creates a limited experience for us to know!!

Our inspiring speaker this Sunday at New Beginning Oneness Center in Tarpon Springs, FL…spoke about the merging of our Spiritual Self and our Physical Self for optimal health and wellness on all levels of BEing!!     His words melted into me as encoded knowing…..and continued to blossom on deeper levels throughout the day.

Then in perfect synchronicity….the book I’ve been passionately immersed in this week, The Bhagavata Purana, spoke in depth about the partnership between Purusha (pure consciousness) and Prakriti (nature manifest).

This Purana is a Sacred Text in Ancient India.   Its knowledge speaks of Creation, Spirit, Eternal Beingness, and the spark of Divine Essence in human form.    Listen to this quote from the Purana….and sense the true Potential it speaks of!!

“The Cause of the universe felt the universe within himSelf in a subtle, potential form, and he wanted to manifest the universe!!”

~ The Bhagavata Purana

This statement tells us that it’s enough to “want” to create the world and experiences we wish to know!!     Inherent within the infinite wonder that we are….lies the primal power to CREATE naturally!!

It implies that not through our mental faculties will we place energy in motion……….but through our passionate, heart-centered faculties!!!     As I’ve sensed and shared before……it is our HEART that puts all in motion!!     Words and actions are empty….unless they are in harmony with the TRUTH that flows through your great Spirit. ♥

This Purana also tells the tale of Kalipa Vasudeva…who is an incarnation of the eternal and ever-radiant Lord Vishnu.     He comes to bring the teaching of Bhakti (devotion) to the Kali Yuga (age of spiritual darkness).     In this passage, he expresses the primal power held within our own Divine Spirit!!

“Let me tell you about the Purusha, and how he pervades the universe.    Once you understand it, all your doubts will dissolve.    The Atman (great soul) in you is the Purusha, without beginning, without end.    Self-luminescent, there is nothing that is apart from Him.    He is ubiquitous, all things are of him, and he is infinite and eternal.   Purusha is primal.   He is distinct from and transcends Prakriti, the world of nature.   Purusha illuminates the universe.   Subtle, divine Prakriti is Purusha’s lila (playground).  Purusha’s flirtatious infatuation with Prakriti causes the universe!!    He is the refuge and the one who controls Prakriti.”

~ The Bhagavata Purana

Simply said….we are the sacred ones who bring form to the formless!!    We are the ones who direct universal energy into manifest energy.    And……….we are doing so naturally!!       It’s all part of the intelligent design that naturally is!!

So……what will you do with this knowledge and truth??      Will you begin to stand in Awareness……….and place your energy, thoughts, and intentions in to frequencies that support your journey??

Or will it take you a moment to authentically Trust that you are as power-filled as you most certainly are!?!?

It takes bravery to TRUST that you are responsible for your every experience!!     But………………..we all must begin somewhere!!     So today I encourage each of you to IMAGINE the body, the world, the relationships, the experiences that you wish to know.

I believe that’s the first step to living the manifest life of our dreams!!

In JOY and Ever-expanding Wonder,

Alania

Faith Is Believing…..

FeatherFaith

Faith is believing in the unseen without questioning its validity!!

Whether you’re learning to Trust in the power of your own sacred heart, the love that surrounds you each day, the prosperity that flows to you endlessly, or the untapped potential that lies within…………….have FAITH that this Life is so much more than you can imagine it to be!! ♥

Standing In Awe of God’s Divine Light

Sacred Wisdom Activation

Let me begin by clearly stating that to me……..God is that force of inexpressable incomprehensible LOVE that births all, sustains all, and empowers all.     Beyond any single identity….God is The Infinite ALL!!       Only Love can be known in his Light.    Judgment and punishment are not even a possibility!!

I often speak of “Spirit” as the expression of God’s Light in motion.    But in this moment….even “Spirit” seems to be an under-statement to describe all that I so joyfully came in contact with yesterday morn.

We gathered for a Sacred Wisdom ceremony…..wishing to open our hearts to sense the true beauty, complexity, and delicacy of Universal Source and Light in motion.      We created the portal with crystals, flowers, and silent prayer alone.    No words were spoken to activate the portal of Light we were about to step into.     We used the Power of our HEARTS alone!!  

And suddenly with a FORCE unlike anything I’ve ever seen……Divine Light poured from the core of Earth Mother herself up through our Sacred Circle and into the cosmic and expansive beyond.    I knew that a powerful Gate of Initiation had opened….and that within that gate no sense of Time or Space can exist.

In the presence of this LIGHT……my body became formless and expansive too!!!     No part of my Spirit was hidden in this Light.      I was naked, raw, and real in this GIFT of Divine Presence……………..and all I felt was LOVE for mySelf tooooooo!!!

The shell of all shallow perceptions and beliefs instantly shattered in this compassionate force of Truth!!     I could clearly See that there could be no obstacles, distractions, or resistance to any experience I’d like to know or be part of!!

In this Light ONLY Birth, Creation, and Life can be found!!! ♥

Even what we perceive as Death and Pain is actually a birthing of NEW energy and opportunity!!     In the greater cycle of Life………no Death can be.

I looked into this LIGHT to sense who and what it might represent.    There was not one single virtue and attribute that it did or did not represent!!!     It was the Power, Gift, Force, and Source of GOD’s Divine Light in manifest presence……for us!!

How do you breathe in such AWEsome BEAUTY!?!?

From all the work I’ve done in Spirit…..I knew that I could only remain in this state of Awareness by releasing all controlling thoughts.    I needed to simply receive…..and stay out of my “mind” as long as can be.     And yet…..the more I welcomed this all-encompassing compassion into my Heart….the more I expanded into formlessness.     So it was a dance to surrender……….and to remain grounded in the physical too.      In truth….I was learning to welcome this vibration of Love and Light into the physical realm!!

I can clearly see that now!!    The more comfortable we become in this Flame of Divine Consciousness and Truth………the more able we are to BE portals for this Divine Flame and Light upon this earth plane!!

A great shift is coming in the evolution of Humanity!!     The separation between Humanity and Divinity is becoming thinner and less removed.    So…………………prepare yourselves my beautiful brothers and sisters!!     We will each be offered greater and greater opportunities to look into the Heart of GOD’s Divine Light and come through it Awakened!!!

In knowing that my time in that portal was coming to an end……I selfishly expressed “I don’t wish to leave”.     And a great voice most wisely and aptly responded “YOU ARE THIS LIGHT!!”

Suddenly the thought of needing to cling to something that I already AM…………was comical.

Are you ready to see yourSelf as this Divine Force of Light and Love!?!?

I encourage you each to try!!   Only Truth and Freedom will you know!!

In Gratitude and BLISS,

Alania

Choosing A Path of Grace and Ease

brightHorizon

No single Yes or No can be solely responsible for where we find ourselves now!!     Where we are is a reflection of all the choices and decisions we’ve made along the way.    Each single step has added to the story of our unique and individual journey.

If we happen to find ourselves at a point of struggle in our life…..please recognize that our thoughts leading to this point allowed us to believe that struggle, disharmony, and difficulty was a given possibility.     We reacted as one who was surviving…instead of one who is thriving.

And if we now choose to shift that pattern of underlying insecurity to one of Joy and Prosperity………it’s important for us to begin reacting in Love and Faith…no matter the apparent situation. ♥

I spent the night in dream state…..watching that my reaction actually triggered the opposing action and reaction from another!!

If I was strong enough to consciously stand in Light, Truth, and Integrity no matter that which appeared……I was able to easily free myself from the chaos that was just beginning to birth itself around me.

With my conscious choices….I either transformed the situation to a gentler tone or I calmly spoke my truth (without blame or shame) and stepped free from that experience with grace and ease.

I believe that we (those who are easily triggered by human insecurities) are beginning to see that there are always many choices to carry us through each moment and experience!!    We are never at the mercy of that which “appears”.    There is always a path of Grace and Ease awaiting us on our journey.

So I encourage each one of my beautiful brothers and sisters to stand in Awareness today………..and realize that today holds the potential for you to powerfully shift and create your future reality!! 

In Joy and Ever-growing Wonder,

Alania
