Spirituality of health

In the world of spirituality the proof, we say is in the pudding. If you walk a spiritual path, declare yourself a spiritual person, yet your life is not in order or on a path of success, then exactly what are you talking about? For me there can be no greater advertisement to the efficacy of a spiritual system than those who are successfully walking it and doing it while living in the real world.

I mean walking it, not walking above it.

Meditate in conscious devotion for 10% of your day. Spend the rest of your waking moments in consciousness and you will experience spiritual awakening, no doubt! You will cultivate greater spiritual growth, health, you name it. Time spent with God offers the benefits of God spending time with you. Boom, system successful. The light in the spiritual teachers eyes tells the truth of that statement. But no one said it was a fix to the problems of life they said it was a path for creating success on the journey of life.

People ask why do spiritual people get sick?  But it’s not about why people get sick. Every human physical vessel is vulnerable. The power is knowing when you made the mistake that opened you to sickness and knowing how to correct it. I had an intensely emotional event happen and in rapid secession 2 others things, each designed to start a downward spiral of omg’s and are you kidding me? Enough to weaken me until at the grocery, someone’s sneeze in produce, wrapped itself around me in bakery, making me sick by sundown.

As soon as I realized I had to take the physical descent into sickness I got back on my own healing work. My experience with my health and knowing what to do cut my reaction time to sickness and made it unnecessary for me to see a doctor. I built back up my vibration worked with my body and got well sooner.

The spirituality of health is the spirituality of life. When we spend our day in a state of awareness then we see where we are going and we can sense the danger that may be near. Allowing our emotions to cloud our judgment even one second can be enough to allow a downward spiral to begin that can be very tough to stop, like they say, it only takes one…(little germ) or one badly placed word.

The more you meditate the greater your inner light can shine. Darkness of thoughts, emotions, and ideas can not hurt you and your body will not weaken. The greater you keep your inner light the healthier your life. Keep the light of the sun with you always.

Feel free to message me with questions maybe I can help or lead you in a direction you can go.

Peace!

A greater love for Valentines Day, I’m right here!


“You, God, who live next door–

If at times, through the long night, I trouble you
with my urgent knocking–
this is why: I hear you breathe so seldom.
I know you’re all alone in that room.
If you should be thirsty, there’s no one
to get you a glass of water.
I wait listening, always. Just give me a sign!
I’m right here…

Rainer Maria RilkeRilke’s Book of Hours: Love Poems to God

In a world where we can choose the kind of love we desire to experience this is this kind of love I desire. To be loved because I am seen, my needs ready to be known, the desire to served and be served fulfilled. I want to say and I want to hear, I’m right here!

Never underestimate the power of love. Yet at the same time remember, the truest definition of love contains the effects of suffering, and the knowledge that we can love whomever we want, but we cannot control or make anyone love us back. A love that is given from the heart is in its truest sense a golden gift of life but only when given freely, with no need of love in return.

When we give our love in such a way, freely, loving without condition our heart grows stronger and we gain the ability to love more abundantly. This strength moves through our whole being. We become less judgmental, we see beyond the mask of ego to the hidden inner light of others. True love is the strength of recognizing the other as yourself. And fanning the light in others greatly fans the heart within us. We can heal ourselves when we love others completely, seeing the Divine at work in everyone. It is why the masters teach that love is the highest energy, and love heals all, and the big one, God is love!

Never forget the phrase, therefore by the grace of God go I. At any moment that which you look down upon may come to rest in your life. Or your living room may come to rest in your car. At any moment your life conditions can change. Love your family through their faults, love your friends like your family, and above all, love your creator who gave you the breath of life. It seems so sappy to say it like that, but life cannot be looked at in any other terms than miraculous and we are lucky to be alive. Living in a state of gratitude towards our creator, walking a righteous path will fill your life with a grace not found in others lives. Their pain is in their forgetting.

Do one thing everyday that shows gratitude towards your idea of the source, the great architect of the Universe, the one God. Imagine the work the force does continuously, like our sun for our planet, without asking anything in return from the life it is sustaining. The small time I spend in meditation is but a small gift as compared to the gift of knowing God is watching me every minute. God is listening for my every breath while I have to concentrate and focus, stay conscious while inviting the Divine to be a part of me because I am already a part of the Divine. You can understand the my desire to ask whether God needs a drink of water, because I need God to know I’m right here!

When we work with the Divine Spiritual Wisdom especial in community it brings God right into our lives and success a well lit path to follow.

Sending all of you love and may you have some really excellent chocolate!!!

Conscious Giving


leannezeppa

This is a track from my cd. I have been a chanter for many many years so when my teacher encouraged me to do a chanting cd it seemed both an awesome and challenging idea.

Plus, it scared me a lot! “You want me to do what?” I was in a difficult place emotionally and didn’t want to ‘do’, anything. But ask any artist and they will tell you heartache is the stuff of greatness. By turning our difficulties around God blesses our pain creating beauty with the ashes of our burnt dreams. I had tons of fuel for a fire and my teacher helped me turn the fire into gold. I am grateful for his encouragement! God is great!

We have heard a thousand times to be grateful. In every thought, word, and deed, every minute, every second, of every day. Yet we have a hard time moving our consciousness outside of our small selves. So self involved does our inner talk become that we believe ourselves stars in a movie and the world our set. The truth teaches that our lives are nothing out side of the creative energy that sustains us, nothing, poof, gone! We actually do move, live, and breath through God’s being.

Maybe it is easy to have a grateful attitude when you walk through a constant stream of blessings, I don’t know. I have gained entrance to the spiritual world through the Planet Saturn, the planet of hard knocks and figure it out! There was a certain time in my life when the shit storm had grown so over whelming I fell to my knees and in doing so I was given the strength to get back up. God gave me this track on one of the days I was down on my knees and through the strength of this prayer I got up and finished recording the cd.

We can be experiencing the most difficult of circumstances. It happens to us all at some time and it is a test of what we are made of. All we have to do is walk in faith keeping the divine laws active in us and we will be led through our inner wisdom and spiritual intuition. This wisdom is a gift and it counteracts the imbalance we often face when we indulge our free will towards our animal nature. Knowing the laws of cause and effect makes toeing a righteous line, a much easier task! Believe me!

I hope one day for each person to understand their potential greatness and through their struggles they have learned to reach up for support and felt the guiding light. It is always there. We have often been remiss labeling it coincidence or accident. Nothing is done by chance, its something we have to learn.

There is a force leading us not by force but by course. Every time you trip yourself up, its something trying to get your attention. Every time you experience success, you have let the divine show itself through your unique voice. Open yourself and the force will move gifts through you, its how it works.

If it is still dark in your life, keep reaching, keep working to better yourself. I can tell you it can get really dark before the light of wisdom and understanding can reach us. It is through working with sacred vibrations that helps to elevate the spirit allowing us a glimmer of what could be, what shall be… Use this prayer of God to sustain you, share it with others. Let God guide you like God guides me.

Peace

I think people have no idea the power of their negative patterns. You will hear people tell you the same story over and over again with only the names being changed. “She left me, again” Everyone around trying to be supportive because it is the same thing with you, find someone then its “fight, break up then make up, same story different day. Everyone around us can identify where others are stuck but very few people seem to see their own stuck-ness.

Now I am talking about typical human behavior not the kind of irrational behavior that needs supervision and medication. I am talking about the things that hold us back, the things that we won’t readily admit we have the most problem dealing with.

We are swimming in a fog of forgetfulness as far as our own faults and needs to grow are concerned. We will declare our willingness and claim a renewed vigor on our favorite walk of life, slowly losing steam as we realize the real work of change is just that “work”. We do not change because it is a fun activity we change because what we are doing isn’t working anymore and we know it. We have been digging a rut on our life journey following the same circle over and over, claiming each time to do better or better yet pretending you don’t see yourself walking into brick wall as you say “ok, let’s try it one more time”, really one more time!

Yah, one more time, because sometimes its easier to just deal with it than it is to take the steps towards real change.

Because who are we trying to fool. If we are not ready to change there’s not a damn thing that can make us change. Life gets very comfortable even in its stupidness. Especially with our relentless pursuit of entertainment and pleasure to over ride the pain of our unsuccessful lives. We do stupid things, we live unconsciously. And who are you to tells us otherwise?

Sometimes the self loathing we feel towards ourselves causes us to be in denial and while all the evidence points to the fact we are not really making any progress towards our goal we will proclaim victimhood to self-responsibility. Life is hard, yup, check, and sometimes the best teacher you get is the one staring at you in the mirror, you know the one looking at you after you have messed things up, again! We have to be conscious or we will be constantly falling victim to our negative patterns.

Face it, we all have things we need to work on, we ALL do. So do yourself a favor and begin to at least own your stuff. Start to live an examined life. If you are standing on a life path that is experiencing a cascading avalanche of negativity go back through your memories until you find the one that shows you  pulling the lever that was holding the avalanche back. We are here to learn and when we don’t do it consciously we will find ourselves being tripped up by our own ignorance and blindness. We want to learn, deep down inside everyone wants to be better, it just gets covered up in ego and fear, and then we forget.

The joy of being human is the free will we have been given to learn the divine spiritual wisdom needed to run our lives. But it does no good at all to have the freedom and wisdom to run our life if we don’t first have control over it. Understanding how you are tripping your self up will give you the ability to see obstacles as they approach rather than dealing with them after the collision. Take stock in your life and if you find yourself trapped repeating a negative pattern, get out of the house of mirrors, clean off the lens of your eyes and face your reality. Start learning your lessons and get back into the driver’s seat of your life.

Community

I have been at a Kabbalah of Birth training this weekend and surrounded by community new and old of like-minded people, sharing in the desire to be a part of the change we want for our world. What a wonderful thing. We desire a world filled with light filled souls brought into families with light filled hearts. A community that becomes family.

I think of being a part of community part of the sacrifice we make that is filled with love, for in community the body of pain is as active as the one surrounding your family of birth or your family at home. Being in community especially a spiritual community allows personal growth in a place you thought would be filled with enlightened souls. Nope, we all just are interested in getting to the same place and are hoping to take as many with us as we can.

Where are remembering the importance of family. We are making families for people who do not have families and the reason is to support and grow, not control and separate. It’s a love revolution. A community is filled with beings in different stages of growth and change. It re-enforces the teaching if you can not see God in all you cannot see God at all. We do it see the light in ourselves reflected in everyone we meet. We do it to heal our families and our communities worldwide. I’m doing it for my grandkids.

It is my hope you can be part of a community. It is a heart opening experience to see growth in action. Sometimes those around us are so stuck it can be hard to keep going, we need each other. We are soldiers of light but even a soldier needs back up from time to time. Being a part of a community is an opportunity to develop your backup team. And if you are blessed enough to get to have a living master leading the way to your inner realization then you are in the right place knowing your team will be there when the going gets tough. Right on!.
