Expand Your Awareness

Never before in the history of man has there been as much interest in understanding life beyond the physical. Science and religion have long agreed that what is beyond our five senses is far more powerful than that which we can see or touch. Yet, even with that understanding we still cannot explain what that powerful “something” is or how we can harness it. Scientists call it substance. Religion calls it God. It matters not what we call this unexplainable, indefinable force, the important factor is the knowledge that we have a relationships with it.

In our search for meaning, we have experienced glimpses of profound truths that at some level we seem to always have known. Intuitively we have pierced the veil between the physical and the metaphysical and we have felt the presence of a loving spirit ever available to answer our needs. In moments of high spiritual awareness, there is a knowing that transcends our earthly understanding. But have we applied these awareness’s to our daily lives? Often we do not until something happens to jolt us into a keener awareness.

We may encounter a life changing event, sometimes traumatic, sometimes joyful but always enlightening.  A moment in time when the presence of something bigger then self is felt like a bolt of lightning out of the blue or the soft whisper of the wind against our cheek. However the spirit of life enters our consciousness, we can never be the same again. In that holy instant we have transcended all previous understanding and have experienced a rebirth of our awareness. For one moment we have glimpsed our true identity, we have melded with the cosmic consciousness of the universe, we have known our unity with all of life and for that moment, nothing else matters, a wholly new life experience dawns for us. A door opens and with that opening comes en even deeper level of self-discovery.

These moments of heightened awareness may appear more infrequently then we would desire but perhaps we can create an internal environment that will allow for greater receptivity. An openness that calls forth our own true nature, where creative ideas abound, significant realizations are common and our sense of connectedness with the source of all life is the predominating fueling of our heart.

Perhaps this is the place to begin. To ‘act as if’ we feel spirit as a presence of love as well as power and strength. To feel free in the understanding that we live in something that is greater than we are, that gives us the courage to step out and take a chance on life for we know that we are protected. This type of thinking will surely move us from any stuck place or any place of uncertainty to a level of courage and peace. When we are on the ladder of life, we know that there is only one way to go…up…up…up to a higher awareness, to a greater experience of the fullness of life.

Affirmation: I am one with the source of all life. I am guided and protected always.
