When I was in high school I was invited to go to church by my good friend. Her father was the pastor there. It was a very strict Pentecostal belief. It was actually my first experience with religion and in the beginning it was a positive experience for me. There were many rules to follow that made a person a valued member of the church. Then, of course, there were ‘the others’. The others consisted of those who didn’t come to church every Sunday, those who smoked, swore, listened to rock music and just generally did religion part time. I was and still am, OCD (compulsive, obsessive individual). Which for me, even before I completely understood the meaning, was more is better, give it all you got, or in other words, go overboard to follow the religion. Looking back, hindsight being 20/20, I really did not understand why the valued members had so much judgement for those who opted for religion part time. To me, at that young age and certainly new to religion, it was uncomfortable to witness the judgement and the constant bickering about what other people were doing, or not doing. Seriously, who is anyone to judge someone else. I was having a hard enough time trying to follow and fulfill all the rules and regulations to be a valued member, and of course to be good enough to get into heaven…. whew!!!! There was so much about god’s will, how it was so important to do god’s will. If there was some kind of barrier, some reason why you couldn’t do god’s will, then it must be the devil coming for your soul.The devil could wreak all kinds of havoc, so we who were the valued members must be ever on guard against evil. Geez, who thinks this stuff up…….It took me years to clear my obsessive path to find peace. But what I learned during those years in a religion gave me a foundation to work from.
These days we hear more and more about different religions. What started out as a connection to our Source, turned into a bunch of rules and regulations, which you, may or may not be acceptable to belong as a valued member. So much of the stuff ‘they’ say you’re supposed to do, isn’t even covered in the spiritual books they hold so tightly too. So what is that about?…….Well, friends, it’s about control. The more fear you have the more ‘the powers that be’ can control you. There is a much easier way to live life. There are books and books available about happiness and enlightenment. Teachers and speakers ready to charge you big bucks to hear the secret of how to have an amazing life. But it’s really not that complicated. We make it complicated by our own ego, which is constantly telling us we don’t deserve. The truth is simpler than you realize…….
You, my friend, are a spiritual being in a physical body. You are already special just for coming to Earth and taking on this life. You are connected to the most powerful energy in the Universe, and that energy supports you in what you choose to create. Everything in your life is part of your creation, and you are amazing at manifesting. You may not like what you have manifested. That is okay, because what you need to understand, that the stuff you do not like and the stuff that makes you uncomfortable, are your biggest lessons and blessings. If you can see through spiritual eyes what Source wants you to see, the actual ‘aha’ moment is in front of your face. It will remain in front of your face till you get the lesson. The good news is, you have the power and ability to change what is happening. Learn the lesson and start manifesting what you want by being in gratitude for what you have already learned. And there you have it…….simple and easy.
Right about now, the ego pops in and tell you it’s a ‘bunch of bunk’. The ego does not want you to change, and this is where the fear gets real. Stepping outside the box of what you have created as your life, and detaching yourself from what you created yourself to be, so you could fit in, is the hardest thing you may ever do. Everyone wants to fit in, to be accepted, and wants to be liked. But that societal box is not for everyone,especially you who have been led to read this now. You’ve been wanting out ever since you can remember. That is the because you know who you are deep inside. The spiritual being, that you really are, is ready to come out and play. Welcome to Earth Spiritual Being!
Enlightenment, which is what I’ve been speaking of, the actual acceptance of who you really are, is not an easy road, but so worth it! You see, gods will for you can only be measured by the joy in your heart. Whatever, makes your heart sing, whatever brings you bliss, is your direct connection to Source aka gods will. That’s actually how it works. So if you are a man and need to become a woman and that is your joy……manifest it, the Universe supports you. Maybe you want to live in the mountains, painting and that is your joy…..manifest it! The whole Universe supports what you do when you follow your joy!!!! That my friend, is energy and that is how energy works. Every time someone follows their heart and creates their joy, it raises the frequency for everyone. The Universe is on your side, deep down you know that, it’s why you showed up this time, so it would be simple and easy…….. And the Universe always does ‘simple and easy’.
