Sanctuary Sunday!

Hola Todos!

Happy Sunday to all and thank you for joining me again this week. Today’s Sanctuary Sunday message is a buffet of sorts that connect us to our need to make ourselves available to receive new information. No one knows it all, and it’s important – if we are to connect with anyone or anything outside of ourselves – to open up enough to listen to a different voice or message or thought other than our own.

May you be lifted!

Sanctuary Sunday!

Happy Sunday, All!

Thank you for taking a moment to join me for today’s episode on allowing our feelings to flow through us without latching onto them and perceiving them to be solid, fixed, and permanent aspects of ourselves. Remember, feelings aren’t facts. Feelings come and go, rise and fall, and return before leaving us again. Feelings may be beautiful or upsetting, dangerous or generous, mean or loving, yet they are not solid or fixed. We allow them to come and allow them to go.

May you enjoy!

Sanctuary Sunday: Live YOUR Truth!

Hello, Hello!

Join me today for Sanctuary Sunday where the message is about living your truth so that you can live with passion, alignment, and joy. Grab your coffee and let’s go!

Insight: Our Deepest Knowing

12ce4465ce0f76fc90f2fbf4a28bb072--indian-people-incredible-indiaInsight arrives like a care package in the mail. It awakens joy and inspires us to touch the tip of gratitude. It comes when we open ourselves to receive guidance and release the hold of our own will, and when we wake inside the practice of “Thank you,” and move forward from that place. Thank you has a way of creating openings, ones that allow us to travel from pain to healing, from poverty to prosperity, and from limitation to the unlimited bounty that is life itself. Insight is the blooming of the seeds we’ve planted and cultivated through time and space, and when it cracks the soil revealing itself for the first time atop the surface, we are guided in the direction of the highest vibration. May we turn toward the within and listen for the way. May we silence the noise long enough to allow the breath of insight to enter in: It is our deepest knowing.

Sanctuary Sunday (new project)

Hello to you! I wanted to take a moment to share with you my new project, Sanctuary Sunday, a YouTube channel designed to expound (in video form) on what you may see here, as well as other spiritual, philosophical, and life-related topics. I have found that providing a video opens the room, holds more, and creates space for us to see more into the fullness–words and picture. Do feel free to subscribe to my Youtube channel if it resonates with you. We are all a part of life’s bounty. Always, always with gratitude.

fullsizeoutput_325The other day I decided to walk to one of the many cafés in San Miguel, Zenteno Café, a quaint little spot situated at the tip of a street that ends in a sort of triangle. I had in mind to get out and do some writing amongst other people’s energy, change things up a bit from my normal write at home routine. Zenteno is perfect and usually full of others writing while sipping an espresso or latte. It’s a known gem amongst other cafés making it challenging to get a seat. See “quaint” for this cafe, is another word for very small, yet oh, so charming. I was able to get the last available seat near the baristas, my back against the wall everyone and everything became my view.

While en route I saw a young man I’ve seen several times in my neighborhood. He’s always friendly and wearing very lived in clothes that appear to be about two weeks past laundry day. “Hola!” I said with a wave while passing. “Hola! Como estas?” he returned, and so the greeting went, nothing out of the ordinary and all while I continued walking, him now following behind. When I turned to tell him I was off to the café to write, he extended his reach to me and in his hand was an ornament. “Oh, no gracias,” I said smiling at the gesture. “No gracias.” He continued to reach. “Es para tí,” he said, looking directly into my eyes then repeating. “Es para tí.” In that moment everything stopped including me. Here this young man stood offering me the only thing he had in that moment, and the look in his eyes was as though he’d searched and searched for something special, and it was for me. I know that wasn’t the case, but it was the case if that makes sense. I accepted the ornament from my heart and held it in my hand. “Muchas gracias.” I said bowing slightly. My spirit certainly recognized his in that moment. Continue reading “Ofrenda”
