Inspiration to have and to hold : 5

 “If we did the things we were capable of, we would astound ourselves.” Thomas Edison

Early on in my personal spiritual journey, I went through a phase of watching and reading stories of NDE’s or near death experiences. It was an integral part of shedding my ingrained catholic beliefs of heaven and hell and life ending at death. 

This led me to the work of Dr. Michael Newton (Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives), which quite literally blew my mind and made me eager to experience my own past life regression; which I later did with the fabulous Nancy Hajek right here in Nashville. When I surfaced back to consciousness from our session together, I sat up and looked at the clock, astounded that over three hours had passed. She grinned in reply: “I didn’t want to stop you! It was so fascinating!” 

“Now that you know the truth of who you are, go back and live your life fearlessly.” Anita Moorjani

The experience of my past life regression had a profound impact on me. Indeed, it led me on a path that is still unfolding right before my eyes. 

The masters who have gone before us - from Shakespeare to Einstein to Franklin to Edison - all left us with their enlightening words; imploring us to understand how powerful we are. And that we are, indeed, the masters of our universe, creating our reality. We choose every single day and every single second within it how we wish to experience the world.

“We are much greater and more powerful than we realize when we are in our physical bodies.” Anita Moorjani

In this TEDTalk, Anita Moorjani speaks about what happened when she arrived at an Emergency Room, transported by her husband. She was already in a coma and her organs had begun to shut down. Her husband was told to gather the family, that there were a mere few hours left for her to live.

“So much more exists than what we believe. So much more exists than what we have experienced.” Anita Moorjani

My personal mantra this year is "life is lush and I am limitless." I say this all day every day, in between acknowledging with deep appreciation all of the abundance and beauty around me.

It took me awhile to fully grasp that one of the most powerful keys to manifestation is to energetically vibrate as high as possible. For me that means many things in my daily routine: a great night’s sleep, exercise, time in the woods or nature, meditation and ensuring I am happy, truly happy, in the moment.

This has made a radical difference in my life. I don't always get it right, mind you, and certainly have plenty of "meh" days. But when I am in alignment with my highest self? I am unstoppable.

I hope you take time to discover for yourself what puts you in a fantastic frame of mind. Then, operate your day from there. After all, life is lush dear friend, and you? You are limitless.

In the forward to Frank Ostaskeski’s beautiful book, The Five Invitations* is this quote by Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D.: 

“For many people, authentic life starts at the time of death — not our own, but someone else’s.”

Chances are until you have experienced that one great loss, this will read to you as more ominous than catalytic. Like grief itself, these types of statements can’t fully be absorbed and understood until you experience them yourself.

We can get attached to who we think we are. We can be downright stubborn about it. Our identity seamlessly and completely intertwined with what we do. What we do becomes what we are. But what if what we do is taken away from us in the blink of an eye? Who are we then?

In the words of Chinese Philosopher Lao Tzu:

“When you let go of what you are, you become what you might be.”

Words fail me when I try to describe Jill Bolte Taylor’s Ted Talk: My Stroke of Insight to others. What I can share with you is that it came into my awareness at the perfect time in my life. When I had already shattered most of the beliefs that had been passed down to me; scripts that had been programmed into my mind by others in my life throughout my formative and well into my adult years.
