Dying to the old, birthing the new

I have had many "little deaths" in my own life this year. I have had to give up the need to "save and fix" others in order to more deeply live an authentic life and accomplish the projects I am being called to do. I have had to search my heart and allow any self-deprecating patterns to die so I could truly share a powerful and spiritual understanding of self love in my classes. In have had to let go of being in control as my house went through trials in order for it to be birthed into a better reality. I have had to die to many of my expectations as to how life "should" look in a given moment and learn to live with how "it does" in order to make room for God's miracles. And truly, new joy, new life, and new inspiration has resulted.

I recently talked to a beautiful client who said she had to let her resistance to her calling die in order to allow her spirit to be birthed into joy. She had been a caretaker her whole life, and resisted it, but when she started applying her skills in areas where she was appreciated, she loved it. Her calling had never been wrong. I know another woman who resisted being a mother because she felt she was meant for “more" but when the old programmed belief within her died, and she surrendered to enjoying motherhood, the "more" that she was seeking was found within the life she already lived.

There are so many little deaths in our lives. My beloved camera just died, during peak picture season, and I had to die unto my irritation in order to see the blessing in disguise. I've been thinking about new ones anyway, so God is just giving me a push, and I've got plenty of stock photos from past years. Even the old way of doing this newsletter has died. Mondays have been so busy lately that I was having a hard time making time to sit, clear my head, and channel, I asked the angels to help me find a better way. They suggested I grab the computer immediately upon awakening and channel the newsletter while my mind was still clear. This is working fabulously and I love the contact wit h the angels first thing in the morning. My old habit of “hitting the ground running” had to die so witing this newsletter could be birthed into a new, more joyful reality.

So if something isn,t working well in your life, be it a thing, a situation, or a relationship first sit down and ask, "What within me needs to die, so I can be born into greater love, joy, ease, grace, and truth." Focus within yourself first! It is all too tempting to focus on the external world, but we have far greater power over the deaths and rebirths within. .
