Expectations, Joy, and Creating Balance

I was inspired by an instagram thought-stream by Brittany Greer, where she talks about expectations.

It rang especially true for me, as expectations have been one of the most difficult and important things to be aware of in my life so far, and are truly the foundation of so much of our inner turmoil.

They’re a main focus for me, because of my sensitivity to them when they’ve been placed on me. When you think about it, any moment of displeasure, whether it’s not liking someone’s demeanor, or the choices they make, or your boss being annoyed that you’re not performing well at your job, or you just not liking your job, it’s all based on the experience being in contrast to our expectation that life is supposed to be comfortable and enjoyable.

It sounds strange when you think about it like that, but it makes sense when you break it down.

“I’m annoyed because I don’t like my job.”
-Really Means-
“I expect that jobs should be more fulfilling and enjoyable.”

In a given moment, the thing which we’re observing does not live up to our expectations. That’s the reason why we feel upset. This natural reaction shows us that on a subtle level, deep in our core, we actually expect every single thing in life to be extremely likeable. We know that something better is possible, and we’re kind of bothered that it’s not happening right now. On one hand, it’s incredible to be so in tune with our preferences, but on the other hand, well, following our preferences could easily get way out of hand, and become a toned down version of when my nieces are feeling a little too entitled.

I’ve been spending a lot of time around my nieces lately, and my sister was talking with me yesterday, asking my thoughts on why they seem to have so much trouble focusing and why they’ve been having more of an attitude lately when they aren’t getting their way.

My perspective was simple, and inspired by a conversation on how our behavior is so rooted in the way that, as children, we’re raised. Our society starts us off as small children thinking that the foundation of our everday lives, and our main goal, is simply entertainment. Seeking joy. And don’t get me wrong, seeking joy is one of the most important things that we can practice in our lives, as it will, when balanced properly, guide us to our purpose, and help us to make the right choices that will guide us to where we truly belong. But when they’re unbalanced, we become closed off, angry, depressed, or just plain spoiled rotten. So how do we prevent that? And where did it all start?

I’ll go back to the example of society and children. In our great-grandmothers’ generation, and through all of our recorded history before that, the majority of children grew up in a vastly different environment on too many levels to count. They weren’t bombarded with bright, shiny objects and loud, glowing screens full of imaginary people and stories for hours on end.

They sat in quiet homes, and in nature, with their family. The only things they had to observe around them were the daily actions that helped their family to live a stable life. They watched gardens grow. They watched homes be built with the help of the community. They sat with their mothers and fathers while they cared for animals, did the sewing, prepared the meals with plants that they understood. Their lives were slower and had an obvious purpose, were connected to the natural cycles, and their games with other children were understood to be a very small part of what they were here to be and do.

Their ability to self-discipline and follow the requests of their family were understood as being a top priority, and there was not as strong of a sense, as they developed, that their own entertainment could take over, without the household falling apart. Obviously, children are still children, and it takes time and practice and persistence to form solid healthy habits in life, but with so few distractions, and a sense of being a part of something, their relationship with the expectations placed on them was more solid, more natural, and more real.

For those of us in my generation who grew up without that upbringing, it was a little more like a swirling chaos of Nickelodeon, gameboys, and, oh, we had to go to school because they tell us to. Not a lot of parents (at least based on the conversations I’ve had with many of my peers) even strongly emphasized that being a child is training you for adulthood, in a practical way that really prepared us for things, and just kind of said that someday we’d go to college and get a job, and left the rest up to the schooling systems.

So, a lot of us floundered. A lot of us didn’t even have meals together, or do anything together as a family on a daily or weekly basis. In my home, tv was the only activity, and our dinner was eating while staring into it, without anyone learning anything about each other’s lives, or talking about what was going on in the lives of the adults. There wasn’t a natural observation of adult life that would allow me to prepare myself mentally for what it would be like to learn to balance everything, and have self discipline, feel like an important part of something, or truly learn to relate to others in a kind and healthy way. This was simply because we didn’t talk, we didn’t work together in any way, and everyone was too busy distracting themselves with the brain-candy of the moment, inbetween obligations we didn’t see a reason for (besides “I’ll get in trouble if I don’t”) and pretty much ignoring everything else.

For those of us with this kind of upbringing, it can be very difficult to look at the world we’ve just graduated into and not feel confused, irritated, lost, and overwhelmed with how many things we feel no sense of passion or purpose about, and no obvious way to figure out how to fix it. So, too many of us end up starting off by just finding a job that pays okay, and binge Netflix on the weekends because, what else is there when you don’t really wanna get up?

Then we feel cranky about our job (because we settled for it, but somehow still expect it to be perfect, instead of looking for a creative way to make a living) and we grumble that there’s nothing on Netflix (because we’ve already spent too much time on there and expect it to entertain us forever, instead of thinking about something cool we could learn, or share with the world, and trying it) and we get mad at the people around us (because we expect them to be somebody they’re not, and satisfy our need for love, understanding, fun, and intellectual stimulation, instead of giving more of those things to ourselves, and those people, for being exactly who we each are).

We expect that life should be entertaining. We expect that things should be easy. We expect that the right path will be laid out in front of us, because that’s what we’ve known moving through the world to be like. And we don’t know how to direct ourselves, because no one showed us. And we’re sincerely bothered by everything and everyone that doesn’t match what we know we need, instead of turning to ourselves to find the answers, because we don’t even realize that we have them.

Thanks to these expectations we place on others, and on our world, and even on ourselves, our judgements and the ways we hold ourselves back are born from our comfort zone, when they should be based on whether or not something (or someone) is healthy and fulfilling for us as a whole.

So, the question is… day to day, how do we find the balance?

We start by noticing our emotions, and instead of complaining or shutting something out, pausing to ask ourselves,
“What is missing from this, that makes it bother me?”

If you’re sitting at home on the weekend and feel unbearably bored, what’s missing? Is it adventure? Is it depth? Is it wanting to be a part of something? Is it creative expression? Is it love? Is it wanting to feel accomplished in the world, like you’ve done something important?

If you’re annoyed, or just kind of dismissing a person or an idea, why do you feel that way? Do they remind you of someone who hurt you before? Is it something that feels unfamiliar and maybe makes you uncomfortable to imagine yourself being a part of?

In a conversation, it might be that you feel bothered by someone being rude. Respect is missing. How can you calmly address it? Tell them gently what you noticed. If they show no interest in cocreating a peaceful interaction, it’s okay to set a boundary and walk away.

On the opposite side, in a relationship, whether work or personal, if someone is placing too many expectations on you, and you feel overwhelmed, it’s okay to let them know, and see how you can work together to create solutions, or spread out the work in a healthier way for everyone.

And in your life in general, if something you’re doing doesn’t feel fulfilling, or doesn’t feel like enough, feel it out. Take it step by step and really look at what’s important to you, and go from there. What do you care about, and why? How do you want to make a difference? What are your skills, and what are the new skills that your purpose would require?

If you’re still figuring out your path, think about what you’d want to see the world look like 20 years from now. Think about what problems in the world really hurt to think about. Think about what kinds of activities light your heart up. And think about how they could all fit together into one life.

In my coaching program, Goddess to Goddess Guidance, I take you deeply into the questions that reveal your true essence to yourself, to help you figure out what it really is that’s right for you, on your own terms, in your own way, and work week by week to make it happen, together, as you grow.

Discovering your purpose is a beautiful unfolding that breathes life into you in ways you never knew it could. And I say that from experience. The more that I’ve surrendered to not only the things that bring me the greatest joy and fulfillment, but also the challenges that appear in my path along the way, I’ve become stronger, wiser, and more free and satisfied than ever before, even though I feel like I have so far to grow. This is the journey I want for you, dear goddess, because you are a light uniquely all your own. You will find your way, and I’m always here to walk beside you, Goddess to Goddess.

All my love,

Aquarian Goddess Jen

My Secret

I have held inside of me 
 A secret,
 A swirling torrent,
 Held still in a singularity,
 Melded down into itself 
 A thousand times
 Over the course 
 Of countless patterns
 Of tingling neurons
 Leaping 
 With electric hesitation
 As my story,
 Moment by moment,
 Becomes incomplete.

I have clutched 
 The smile on my face
 So tightly
 That the bleeding heart 
 Behind it
 Began to seep through,
 Pounding against 
 The inside of my skull 
 And rattling the skeletons 
 In my closet
 So loudly
 That I 
 Almost expressed myself
 About an old dark moment
 That hasn't been released
 From the grip that holds
 Its snapping jaws 
 At arm's length,
 Away from my sight.

I am no ordinary human,
 And no more or less special 
 Than anyone you've seen
 In the faces you've avoided 
 On your street 
 On the way to the grocery.
 But I have keys and locks
 That most don't notice,
 Because, 
 Seeing all that's there
 Would bring most shoppers 
 To their knees,
 Wishing that somehow
 They could forget
 What makes us breathe,
 And take their chicken back 
 To the aisle 
 Where they still felt free.

I'm the kind of girl 
 You meet behind a counter,
 Or in an alien ship 
 Three dimensions away,
 Occasionally in the ghetto 
 With schizophrenics,
 Or by a pagan fire 
 Dancing in the rain.

Sometimes I'm in a trash house 
 In the desert,
 Or hiding under a blanket 
 On the couch.
 But my secret 
 Is always melded 
 Into everything,
 The details you don't hear,
 That I leave out.

I wrote this tonight to share with you my experience of opening.  We all have things that feel incredibly difficult to be open about, sometimes even with ourselves, but the more that we are brave enough to at least notice and feel what we’re hiding and why, the easier it will be to determine where our unexpressed story is holding us back.

What if you’re holding back the truth about what you need in a job or a relationship?  Or what if your unexpressed weird or wild or taboo side is keeping you from unleashing the most satisfying creative ways of expressing who you really are as an individual, and keeping you from getting to know yourself fully?

What if your old wounds, and other things you don’t like to think about, are keeping you in a habit of playing it safe, keeping yourself small, or settling for something that makes you wonder where you went wrong?

We have to be honest with ourselves and know our own secrets.  Only then can we begin to move forward, and be loving towards ourselves in the ways that we really need it, and be bold in the ways that we haven’t been for too long of a while.

And as always, I’m here with an open heart to remind you that you are perfect as you are, and always growing, and supporting you on your journey, Goddess to Goddess. 

All my love and appreciation,

Aquarian Goddess Jen

When I think about dying…

Hello there, beautiful soul.

I hope you’re doing well. I’m having one of those moments where you remember just how short and precious our time is here. I get a little nervous when I’m not feeling well for a while, since there’s no clear explanation for what’s causing some of my issues, besides stress. But the thought is mainly brought to mind today by a show I’m watching, where a woman, who decided not to get surgery, and to let cancer take her, was writing a bucket list… with such grace, and honesty.

I used to think about the temporary nature of life a lot more in high school than I have recently, but it’s definitely coming to mind more often, and I feel it immensely. It’s like I’m watching my life from its end, looking back on today, and all the years before it.

I decided to write a list from those tears, and I felt it would be more personal and honest than the usual goals that I write out of a need to change the world through acts of survival. What do I really want outside of that? I analyzed it later. Initially, my instincts just poured, through my shaking.

Before Jen Dies

Please help her to

Ride a horse

Spin wool

See an aurora

Fall in love

Stay in love

Give her mom $5,000

Snuggle a kitten

Make her own wedding dress

Give Niki a home

Make a new good friend

Share her heart with the world

Feel beautiful

Be kind and compassionate

Be strong and sovereign

Touch moss

Make love in the forest

Dance with reckless abandon

Grow love in vegetables and flowers

Feel truly at home

If you didn’t have long, and didn’t know how long, what would you truly desire? What would be the things you’d wish for when you thought it might be too late?

Riding a horse surprised me. I guess we want pretty different things when coming from different states of mind. But everything else seemed like they fit perfectly.

A couple that almost made the list were eating chocolate, and listening to the Backstreet Boys with my sister. “Huley Hooping” with my niece belongs on there too. Hearing gramma tell stories from the world long before I was born. Sharing a campfire with good company. If I could choose how I wanted to die, it would be in my sleep (like my dad..) and after a night of nostalgic conversation around a campfire. With my family, or someone just as close.

Cherish these precious opportunities. We haven’t always got the strength, or the focus… but try to fit these special moments into the daily struggle of gathering what’s needed to stay alive. Because otherwise, what’s the point of any of it?

Be well, and be strong. You are sovereign, and worthy beyond measure.

All my love, truly,

Aquarian Goddess Jen

Aquarian Goddess - When I

Who brings out YOU?

Today, let’s talk about influence, identity, and most importantly, you.

Personally, I’m very aware that we are all walking tuning forks and chameleons, soaking up and emitting the gist of our surroundings.

We walk around picking up mannerisms, preferences, habits of thought, and through this natural phenomenon, our individual truths get smushed into different shapes for a while, until we realize it through being shown the striking contrast, usually in a rather dramatic “I don’t even recognize myself anymore!” kind of upheaval.

We’re often drawn to people who remind us of ourselves, or others we’ve felt comfortable with in the past. It’s only natural, since the person feels familiar, and we’ve created a habit of being open to that specific energy in our lives. This is good, as long as we have a healthy filter so that we don’t end up repeating mistakes of opening to someone who has qualities that are damaging.

We also have a tendency to seek out those who have qualities that we’d like to embody ourselves, and while this is healthy when done in a balanced way that keeps your truths and core values intact (while unconditionally loving ourselves along the way), it’s an image of a future self that is always under construction and usually not someone we identify as just yet, so we’ll often tweak ourselves to match the template of how THIS person got closer to where we’d like to be, and can get a bit lost in that.

The third kind of person is the real game-changer. Every now and then, you’ll meet a person who brings out YOU. They are the rare gems who just naturally bring us into a comfortable state of self-expression and feeling good in our own skins.

They may or may not be walking a similar path, they may or may not seem particularly inspiring, but that’s not what makes them so inexplicably enjoyable. You’ll know who they are because they’re not just like you, or like your ideal image of who you want to become. You’re not just picking up on qualities that you share, like you would with a mirror. They’re genuinely THEM and that energy supports you being you.

These are my favorite kinds of people. While you have a lot in common, you get really geeked about how THEM their outfit, or their art, or their way of living is. And they wanna know what makes you you. They appreciate the shit out of your unique expression, and their energy naturally directs you towards INNER expression from your core, rather than ideals and constructs and values of theirs, or society’s.

I’ve lucked out to have a couple friends like that over my lifetime. They’re the ones who you just keep a special place in your life for, who keep a special place for you in theirs.

Pay attention to these people, the ones whose unique energy supports you being what you are. This type of connection is SO life-giving, in that it releases us from the usual pressure we feel to conform to our surroundings, or our ideals, in a sea of expectation and being on guard.

Choose to surround yourself with the people who are amazed by your natural way of being, who encourage you and make you feel proud of who you are.

Give yourself the full permission to be uninhibitedly you. And those who suit you, your projects, and your personality will be able to see you, and be a part of your wonderfully unique life.

Who we naturally are is PERFECTLY suited to our purpose, and as long as we put our genuine hearts and wills out into the world every day, we WILL create the lives we’ve been dreaming of. It’s only a matter of consistent, authentic, soul-inspired action, as we go forward through time.

And if you need a friend or a helping hand along the way, you know I’ve got you, Goddess to Goddess.

All my love,

Aquarian Goddess Jen

Moonstone Magick

I haven’t talked a lot about my experience with crystals, but our bond runs bone deep. For me, they are partners, with whom I work on specific projects, for the greatest and highest good of All, as well as vibe adjustors (and amplifiers, concentrators, directors.. you know the drill) for my field, my space, or my manifestation and healing grids.

Jewelry, for me, almost always has a designated purpose, and is more of an amulet or talisman in my mind, from the moment we meet. I’ll feel its cocreative purpose with me, and will program it solidly with that intention, and feel how its function radiates out into life.

This year, Moonstone has made her way into so many corners of my experience. I’ve always had a soft spot for her dreamy mystique, and her soothing demeanor, but this year, life has strewn her across my path like glimmering breadcrumbs, lighting my way as I meld with the Goddess within.

It began in the most mundane of ways (doesn’t it always) as I scrolled listlessly through instagram. My eye was caught by a image from Moonstone Magic. I couldn’t look away. Hands dripping with gorgeous gemstones… I was practically drooling over the multitude of luminous adornments, and felt drawn to bring a ring into my life.

I browsed.. and I felt it out. One of them reached to me, with her full spherical womb, and her sacred crescent, all contained in a delicate form. She was just like me, this silver ring. I saw the way her energy opened me to the Divine, and connected me to my priestess essence, honoring the Goddess and her Moon. This ring would be a symbol, and an amplifier of this connection. And so it was.

When it first arrived, in its soft, silvery pouch, and the light hit it, I was mesmerized by its otherworldly blue light. I could feel that this pairing was destined.

I delicately slipped the ring onto my left index finger, a point of both receptive and directive of energy. A sensation trickled up my arm, like tiny glistening streams of glowing life-force were swimming up and through me. I smiled and felt at peace.

The second moonstone to reach me this year was in a moon-themed Goddess Provisions box. One of my favorite things about crystals is that no two stones of the same type have the same personality. This stone, while flecked with black tourmaline, held a presence of wisdom and gentle strength. This one follows me, in a pouch in my purse, centering me whilst I am out and about, and helping me out with my writing.

The third was synchronistically gifted to me, just as I completed my journey through the opening ceremony of the Priestess Presence Temple’s Sacred Library. A goddess pendant with a luminous moonstone womb, handcrafted, and originating in Glastonbury, known for its proximity to Avalon. For now, she is gracing my altar, and while I feel drawn to wear her, my sovereignty in alignment with the Goddess is still increasing to the point where it will be time for that. She is the strongest, and most potent symbol and magickal tool connecting me with the Goddess, particularly the Great Mother face of the Goddess, and her natural instinctual behaviors that hold space for, create, and nurture life, all from within the holy vessel that she is. What a miracle, to embody that.

The fourth is more playful. Another gift, given by Moonstone Magic herself, that I might share her story. This is the pendant that awakens my inner faerie, and is dedicated to strengthening my connection to the faerie realms. Delicate and whimsical, filled with reflections that release me into my wise and childlike form of elegance, she smiles me from the inside out, and expresses the personality of my soul in a way that makes it easy for others to see.

Screenshot_2017-09-16-15-48-33

The moral of the story is that moonstone is magic, and no two are alike, despite appearances. Any stone, or piece of jewelry can become an amulet of sacred power, and there is infinite potential to what we can do. Feel free to message me your stories. Which stones call to you, and how do you experience their energy?

And, as always, I walk alongside you, Goddess to Goddess.

From the infinite depths of Spirit’s presence,

The Priestess Presence Temple and the Sacred Library

A week ago, I participated in something truly magickal.

Imagine, if you will, a temple of white polished columns, and a ceiling so high that the stars of the night sky shine in through it.

Looking around, you see a circle of a hundred priestesses, in glowing robes that bear their souls’ coloring, while simultaneously seeing the translucent overlay of the individual sacred spaces in their homes, from which they are visiting and cocreating this place, candles aglow, incense wafting from some of them.

You notice they are gathered with hands outstretched, around a central crystalline core, and as symbols, sacred beyond speaking, and beams of glowing color flow through them, they are illuminating the crystal as they touch it, transmitting all the knowledge and light codes they carry, to be shared with those who will treasure it and use it for good.

This is merely a glimpse of the opening ceremony of the Sacred Library. Truly, there was more than one moment where I cried at the sheer beauty and resonances of the experience.

The Priestess Presence Temple is a place like no other. While we meet for live events, reaching this place in from our own sacred spaces, in group meditation-cocreation, it is also embodied through a platform through which we have access to the information and practices and training that is shared.

I am truly honored to share this experience and and this truly divine temple with all of you. To share in the experience, you can visit here.

If you so choose, you will receive email invitations to wondrous shared experiences and magickal opportunities to enhance the way you walk your sacred path.

There is more to what you are here for than what you have seen.

This is a path of ever-unfurling and deepening.

And as always, I am here with you, Goddess to Goddess.

An alternative perspective on: Why you aren’t where you’d like to be

1. There’s a bigger picture.

What you’re wanting might be one small piece of a puzzle that will change your whole life years from now. Diving deeply into creating, or teaching, or immersing yourself in one path might prevent you from a whole variety of world views or experiences that transform you in ways that you can hardly begin to imagine yourself to be. Everything is temporary. Just like the 80s, and the lifespan of your favorite cat, things will always complete a cycle and become something new with the passing of time.

Your current experience of spirituality will evolve as new ideas reach you. Your entire outlook is likely only a distant cousin of the one you had ten years ago. Your current approach might not fit your future nature.

There is so much that I look back on and think, “wow, if I’d only known who I’d be a year from then, I’d know why that didn’t work out.” We are always on the verge of a breakthrough or transformation, and when we’re heading a certain direction, we never know what The Universe is going to surprise us with that changes us from the ground up.

Considering that what you’re desperately attached to, the path you’re taking towards the goal that you neeeed to work out with a exasperation and pain… miiiiight not be the best option, will open up access to the ideas and possibilities that would fit who you’re becoming like a glove.

2. Impatience, escapism, and perfectionism…

They hold us back more than we know. We want to be the brightest and purest lights, the most dedicated, the most free, the most accomplished in our ideal sacred profession. We want to notice only the things that we feel good about. And it causes us to overlook a lot.

Where we are now is not an accident. What does this place have to teach us, that will help us to create a stable future that has room for all the flexibility we need as individuals, while embracing the reality of our position unconditionally? What do we participate in on a daily basis that helps us to move forward in a way that supports us as a whole?

3. Influence and Intimidation

We are surrounded by people with opinions.

This spiritual teacher says this, my friends think that, my heart wants this, my rational mind thinks I’m a cuckoo bird. What do I do?

You look at two things:

  1. What’s healthiest and most fulfilling for you long term, and…
  2. What is the most steady path to get you there without sacrificing your values.

Everyone thinks that they know what’s best for those around them, but these are merely birdsong around a tree. Feel into your depth of your roots for answers, and feel how beautiful sweet blossoms can ripen fruits at the height of your being as you focus on nourishing yourself from your center.

We are so much more than who we are in this moment. And when we embrace that the version of ourselves we see in the mirror on this day, is evolving in accordance with our sacred inner truth… we find the strength to lead ourselves in new directions. With a sense of wholeness, regal prowess, and integrity.

Be well, my fellow life-shapers.

And as always, I am here with you, Goddess to Goddess.

All my love,

Aquarian Goddess Jen

Just Flow

Give yourself the freedom to flow.  Writing, drawing, dancing, singing, roaming, pondering, exploring, creating, just go!

We need to have a little time to get carried into something wonderful.
Give it to yourself.
Life is here to express itself to AND through you, because life is what you are, and everything that moves you.

Maybe you’ll climb a mountain,  or follow a stream of thought with a friend, farther than you’ve felt it flow before.
Maybe you’ll be moved by a movie, to start a new adventure, birth a goal.

Every end leads you up to a door, even when it looks like a wall, just waiting to be walked through, talked through, with truths you’ve tucked in safely at your core.

So move, go right through it, dancing in sacred and primal circles with the laughter of a healthy fire alight with the delight of gentle rains, whose comfy blankets rest until the witching hour, only to dissipate as soft smiling sighs, twinkling with a far-off milky magick, that we spiral through as again, our cycles go.

Just flow.

Goddess Provisions Unboxing

Today, I want to talk about treating ourselves, because truly, we do deserve it.  Our feminine nature includes a tendency to nurture those around until we’re falling apart, buying gifts and dedicating our time and focus to those who we wish to see smile… and meanwhile, neglecting to surprise and delight the remarkable Goddess (YOU!!) who’s making it all happen, day in and day out.

I saw a thingy on instagram that made me sparkle and “oooooooo…!!”  it happened just as that lesson had reached me, and I knew that the moment had come.

You may be familiar with the concept of the subscription box.  You pay a monthly fee, and receive a box of surprise gifts, usually once a month, and they all fit a certain theme.  Well, I’ve found a box for us Goddesses!  And you bet your booty I bought it. (Don’t bet your booty, though.  You need to have something to shake.)

I ordered this box three months ago, after realizing that it seemed like everything in it was picked out just for me, and it has yet to disappoint!  So, yah know, I’m gonna show you what I got!

Mind you, my videos are raw, and real, and basically like hanging out with me after work, so, when I show you this unboxing, you’ll see a real human, not a glamorous filtered thing pretending it isn’t one.  The reactions are genuine, and the stuff is really great!

So, behold!  The Goddess Provisions Unboxing!

 

And if you’d like to check them out, you can do so at http://GoddessProvisions.com

You deserve to give to yourself.  And with subscription boxes, you receive a special gift once a month without having to go out of your way.  It’s just there at your doorstep, so you can’t put yourself last anymore!  Do something wonderful today.  No one in your life deserves your energy and appreciation more than you do, so give back a little to the Goddess who gives and gives.

All my love, as always!

Seeing the Divine Through Everything 

When you see the divinity in everything, it sees you, and begins to interact with you on that level.   Nothing is truly mundane, in this miraculous creation.  The person behind you blowing their nose on the bus is an embodiment of pure presence.  When you see it, it amplifies.
The greatest use of the law of attraction is to notice that Consciousness, Truth, God, is beneath the layers of everyday thoughts and behaviors, observing it all.  Universal Intelligence is activated wherever you notice it.
Play with this.  Look at each person, plant and animal at their core today, and moving forward.  And see what emerges from within, and how much more easily Divine Intelligence flows to and through you as you practice this most beautiful thing.
Miracles occur when we look at the Truth underlying what our eyes have once show us.  Jesus could see the potential for health in others so strongly that it healed them.  At our core, we are Divine Universal Intelligence.  We are the collective creative force that manifests the essence of connective eternity through our noticing that it is there, as we allow ourselves to let it flow through us, and adjust our identities to that flow.

Life is always flowing us towards greater harmony, fulfillment, and awe, and through relaxing into that, flow, we are released from the struggles that once harmed us.  (Think of the scene with the Devil’s Snare in Harry Potter.  It must be passed through on the journey, and the only way to get through it safely is to let go and relax into knowing that it is moving you to where you need to be, or blast it with magical light that dissolves it away and frees you.)

Trust in life, and see that there is more for you.  There is an infinite peace and presence that guides our lives,  and it is the deepest truth of our collective and individual identities.  It is the force that moves the cycles of nature, that sparks joy in our hearts.   It is in all of us.  It is consciousness it is Life.
