Give Yourself A Second Chance

668There may come a time in your life when you need a second chance; perhaps even more than once.  Through whatever means this desire has come into your life, start from where you are.  There is no need to go back and rehash what was done right or wrong or how you ended up where you are.  There is also no need to start worrying about the future, as to whether or not things will work out or get better.  Just start by taking the first step in the direction that will bring you peace, well-being and happiness.

Second chances are not about righting your wrongs or proving your worth.  They are not about making an amends.  They are about you and only you on a very deep and personal level.  They are about you becoming who you really are through YOUR choice, not through the circumstances of your outer life or by the wishes of other people. 

670We often hinder our journey by convincing ourselves we need to “clean up” the past.  But when you go back in time it pulls you away from your Inner Life, from who you really are, from the present moment.  It causes unnecessary pain because you remember how and why you lost your way in the first place.  If you stay focused on what was or what you did instead of what is and where you are going Now, it will slowly drain you of your happiness, not to speak of your self-worth.

If a second chance is really what you want and desire, then allow your heart to lead the way.  Live within the calmness and peacefulness of your Inner Life and trust your instincts.  You will know which way to go.  You will know the way toward self forgiveness and self love.  And you will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is well and all will be well.  Give yourself a second chance Now ~ for yourself.  Love with all of your heart and allow your Inner Life carry you to where you want to be.

The journey is never ending….

Love & Light,

Love Is To the Soul…

17Love is to the soul like water is to a flower.  Some say the soul is the same as the inner-being (Inner Life) and some say they are different.  I believe they are the same.  The soul, inner-being, inner-child, inner-self, Inner Life, spirit, etc. is the eternal greater part of who we are.  I believe that if we are in tune with, in touch with, or even aware of the greater part of who we really are, a true and deep love with another is always possible.  It is when we attach our love to the outside world, to our outer life, that it is lost.  When you love from within, from your Inner Life (soul), it will never be lost because the greater part of who you truly are is nothing but true unconditional love. When love comes from a place of pure love, it can be nothing but true.

Love & Light,

The World is Your Oyster

500We are always going to be faced with unwanted things because it is the natural cycle of life. To know darkness you have to know light. To know what you want you have to know what you don’t want. However, the degree, intensity, and time you experience what you don’t want is totally up to you. You can allow it to change your life for the worse or you can allow it to open positive possibilities.

The last thing you want to do is to fight against the unwanted. And yes, sometimes it is easier said than done but what you have to ask yourself, even in the midst of chaos, is how you want to feel. Do you want this thing that is causing you to feel less than joyful and happy, perhaps even stressed, worried, or full of fear, have control of you? Do you want this thing to be the decision maker in how your life is going to turn out? No, of course you don’t. So what are you going to do about it? You are going to embrace it for what it is, let go of your attachment to what was, do what you have to do, and keep moving forward with a positive and optimistic attitude. The world is your oyster if you allow it to be.

Love & Light
