You're already there

September 3, 1993 my entire life changed. I had a dream a month before that I was spiraling up a mountain on a dirt road with my husband at the time. I left him to wander into a jungle to the interior of the mountain. In the dense foliage I met a tiny woman who asked me one question, "Are you willing to give up life as you know it?" I must have said yes. I awakened to find exactly three rose petals under my tail bone. The rose wreath was on a far wall. There was not breeze, no fan, no nothing. I still have those petals.

That was the day I went to the mailbox and received a brochure for a conference featuring alternative healers, shamans, and therapists. It was sponsored by an organization that offered continuing education for therapists. I had not signed up for their mailing list. In fact, I didn't know any therapists. There was no earthly reason I received that brochure.

I became excited by the prospect of meeting people who did things I had only read about. Shamanism and energy work intrigued me.  I registered for the conference, eeling that my entire life was about to change.

It was there at the conference that I first felt energy. A woman put her hand on my shoulder and lightning went through me. Another woman, who became my first teacher, touched me and I shook for an hour. "Why am I shaking?" I asked. "Your entire life is about to change," she responded. I begged her to teach me, signed up for her class as soon as I could, and took more as soon as she would allow me. She paced me, made me learn patience, allowing, and surrender. She taught me that although we can force energy to move, it is far easier to allow it to flow through our experience. 

As the years went by I continued to practice surrender. As I surrendered to my heart, I gradually becoming reacquainted with my real self. I surrendered my life as I knew it. I learned to allow the energy to flow through me to benefit others. I learned to channel. Lately as I've learned to surrender to the gaze, I realize that the energy was there all along and I was only surrendering to the experience of it.

What we call "healing" is only a surrender to the wholeness that was already there. What we call "releasing" is only a surrender to the perfection. What we call "expanding" is really just expanding our awareness into the realities that are awaiting our exploration. 

Although I knew this, and have experienced the value of surrendering to the light for years, it has been a huge shift in my reality to experience it more deeply. There is nothing to become. There is nothing to strive for. There is only resistance to release, and a willingness to allow the joy, health, and happiness that is already there waiting, to become part of our conscious experience.

Here are a few pointers to help you surrender into a happier reality

1. Open the doorway of the heart on a daily basis
Do the meditation in the angel message above. In reality we are not opening something shut. We are opening our awareness, expanding our experience into a reality that is just there and waiting for us. We are "tuning" into a frequency of love that is already there. 

We use imagery and metaphor like doorways and opening because this is what our mind understands. However we are just really shifting our awareness to what is already there.

2. On a daily basis, take a few minutes to imagine you are "already there"

Have you ever seen those Russian dolls, where one fits inside the other, and another fits inside that one. If not Google them to get an image.  

Imagine the "you" that you know now is the outside doll. 

Just inside of that there is a whole, healed, healthy, happy, abundant you that has everything you want or need.  

Imagine what that the inner doll – expands to merge with the outer doll. The healthy you expands to merge with and inform the unwell you. The abundant you expands to merge with and inform the not so abundant you. The love and loving you expands to merge with and inform the you that feels unloved or unloving. The "you" that you want to be lives within. It is coming to the surface, 

We are not striving to become what we want. We are striving to bring who we want to be to the surface, so we can attract what we want externally.


3.Give thanks for what you have not yet experienced... but want to

Imagine you have what you want, or are who you want to be. Give thanks. Give thanks for your healed body if it is sick. Give thanks for your abundance even if it isn't here yet. Give thanks for healed relationships, and new abilities. Imagine your future self is giving thanks for what has already transpired. 

This will "tune" you into that experience and start to shift your energies into the experience you want.




We are like radios capable of tuning into any reality, experiencing what we tune into.
 The radio doesn't have to become anything. The stations are already broadcasting. Health, wholeness, love, anything exists as energy right now. The more we "tune" into it, no matter how we achieve that, the more we experience that reality. I'm having fun with this lately and love hearing how you are too!
