Connect! – Richard’s Commentary

April 17, 2014 Leave a comment

We are all connected in so many ways. Do you ever consider just how connected we are? Thich Nhat Hahn speaks of this as interdependence. I heard him speak years ago about this concept of interconnectedness, not just with humans but with all things. It’s his way to begin to explain shunyata, or the Mahayana Buddhist philosophy of “emptiness.” We are interconnected with and interdependent on every atom and molecule on earth (and beyond)!

So as Rosemary writes:

Your life is all about connecting. You were born into a family or chosen by one. You have chosen friends and partners. You bore children or sired them. You have worked with people, paid some for services, gone to the doctor, bought groceries. Every thing you have done has contained an element of connection.

How deep does your “connecting” go?

All of these external, intricate interdependencies at the material, physical level are only a small (maybe miniscule) part of our connectedness. Rosemary urges another way to “Connect”  to the inner you:

When you connect with the inner you, you are tapping into your own power, your essence. When you have a strong connection to your inner wisdom, your guides, you gain clarity and confidence.

How vast is this connection for you? When you let your imagination run free how much ground does it cover, how many worlds do you visit?

Rosemary mentions many ways to connect to the inner you: meditation, contemplation, visualizations, writing. For those who don’t have a formal practice even daydreaming is a way to connect. Prayer is also an excellent way to connect and listen!

But how many of us resist this inner connection? How many even blot it out through various means of escape? Even in prayer it is easy to externalize the conversationmaking appeals to the Almighty out there somewhere in the Universe! Do we ever stop to listen, to keep this conversation bidirectional? When/if we do listen, where do we hear that voice?

Often people need help with this inner connection. For many indigenous peoples they relied on shamans as intercessors with the Spirit World. Western people rely on their priests and/or psychologists to facilitate the inner dialog. This is a wonderful way to begin the conversation. Sometimes we need translators to interpret the symbols. Sometimes we need validation that what we are hearing/feeling/seeing is true for us.

If you need help to jumpstart your inner connection, get it. The inner world is vast beyond belief. The inner connection, the inner dialog can take you on journeys beyond your wildest conscious imagination if you allow and listen. Your purpose calls you to this and your passion is waiting for you, just there, inside!

Have fun; have a great ride. And don’t worry about sending postcards!

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Connect!

April 16, 2014 Leave a comment

Your life is all about connecting. You were born into a family or chosen by one. You have chosen friends and partners. You bore children or sired them. You have worked with people, paid some for services, gone to the doctor, bought groceries. Every thing you have done has contained an element of connection.

Do you love to walk in Nature? Aren’t you connecting with Mother Earth, with the plants and animals as you walk?

Do you go to a job? Eat in a restaurant? Go shopping? Get together with friends for lunch? Spend holidays with the family?

It’s always about connecting.

And how much time do you spend connecting with the inner you? Have you connected with your inner wisdom, your guides, your angels, your intuition? This is the most important connecting you can do.

When you connect with the inner you, you are tapping into your own power, your essence. When you have a strong connection to your inner wisdom, your guides, you gain clarity and confidence.

People today seem to be searching for connection but looking outside for a place to ‘plug in.’ The real connection that they are seeking isn’t outside; it resides inside. Are you one of the seekers of an outside connection or are you remembering to connect to the inner you?

You don’t need to have a great love interest to be connected. It isn’t having a great job or a best friend or a perfect family that will give you the feeling of connection that you seek. All of those connections might be nice, but the most important one is the one that reaches inside you, into the depths of your inner essence, and brings forth the passion, your purpose, your inner divinity and shares that with the outside world.

It is a tall order to make that inner connection and then to share what you find with the world. Your inner light shines so brightly that it can dazzle those who wish to stay in the dark. Your inner guidance will point you in the direction of manifesting your dreams. The inner gifts that you reveal when you reach inside might frighten you with their intensity.

Are you ready to connect?

There are many ways to do this connecting. Your inner light is always shining. If you feel disconnected it is merely a forgetting, not a true disconnection. Meditation, guided visualization, working with a counselor, journaling – all of these techniques will help you to make the connection.

Many of the clients I work with are seeking the wisdom that they cannot hear from their own guides. Often I speak what they think they have been hearing and the guides are using me to confirm the message. It is a matter of trusting what you hear.

Do you trust the inner guidance that you receive? This is the most important aspect to the connection.

If you receive guidance after you connect but you do not trust the message, you will continue to stay stuck where you are. And isn’t the point to move forward, to grow?

Trust me when I tell you that you will have the energy to grow, to move forward, when you are connected to that inner YOU. Your passion, your purpose, your inner wisdom – all are ready for you to connect.

Are YOU ready? Connect!

ROSEMARY’S INSPIRATION: Connect! To Your Passion & Purpose

Rosemary’s “Two-Minute” Video for this Week: Connect! To Your Passion & Purpose

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Are You Ready?

Did you think you could relax because you made it through December 21, 2012?  Think again!

The Shift has begun.  Time has been speeding up for years and we’re moving ahead at an amazing pace.  It’s time to grow, to transform, to evolve.  Hold onto your hat!

Sometimes we think about ‘readiness’ as preparing for all the disasters that are possible in the days ahead.  My little sister works for the Red Cross and has a masters degree in Disaster Management.  She knows about preparing for and dealing with disasters.  But are we really preparing for disasters or for greater, more abundant and spectacular Life?  Let’s get ready for that and leave the disasters to the Red Cross.

Get ready for the Doors of Opportunity to be opened to you, for they are present in every moment if you just look for them.  Your work is to be ready to walk through that open door.  Here’s how to get ready.

First, learn to focus your attention in this Present Moment NOW.  Are you worried about something that might happen in the future?  That possible disaster?  Or even that fantasy of something out there at ‘someday’?  Bring your attention and, thus, your energy, into this Present Moment, for this is where you live and from whence comes all manifestation.

Next, live your Purpose.  Have you learned what your Life Purpose is?  Do you know why your Soul chose to incarnate in your particular body with your particular history at this particular moment?  Discover your Purpose and live it with Passion.  There’s no time now to waste waiting for ‘someday’ to arrive so you can finally live your Purpose.  Someday has arrived and you are looking at it now – today.

The third step is to assess your Present Reality.  What thoughts are winning your attention and are they negative or supportive of your growth?  Are there limiting beliefs at work in your life that are blocking you from happiness and growth?  Have you done the personal development work that clears the blocks from your path and are you sure that you are not living out someone else’s expectations for you?  Do you have some old tapes playing in your unconscious mind that belong in the past or to someone else?  Are you being honest with yourself about who you really are?  Have you disowned your power?

The Doors of Opportunity are opening for you.  You can see them when you look around you in wonder and awe at the magnificent, abundant Universe that gives to you in ways that are much grander than anything you can imagine.  When you search for the lesson in whatever is your present reality you receive the gift that is available to you.  Walk through the Doorway and into the Light.

Our friend was in a serious car accident shortly after the actor, Christopher Reeve, had his accident that left him paralyzed.  Her injury was similar to Reeve’s but she recovered fully.  As she claimed, she was ‘ready for anything and all prayed up!’  She didn’t rail against the Universe for putting her in that situation and she can use that story to help others in their personal development because she looked for the lesson and walked through a Doorway of Opportunity.

Do you know anyone who says that some event in their life that we might judge to be ‘tragic,’ like illness or job loss or financial problems or natural disaster, turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to them?  Not everyone can say that about everything that happens, but when you view the event as a gift that holds a Doorway of Opportunity, you want to be ready to walk through that door!

Remember:

  1. Present Moment
  2. Purpose & Passion
  3. Present Reality

Get ready!  Do the personal work.  And when you see the open door, walk through it!

PS: Do you feel ready for the coming transformations? Are you in the flow and ready for that next opportunity coming your way? If you need answers for questions like “what is my next step?” Rosemary can help. Schedule a FREE Discovery Session with her to be sure you are ready! Schedule Here
