Dark to Light and into Love

Have you ever been so low that you felt you were down in a well, a dark obsidian well covered from the sun?  If you are reading this, then you have been able to climb out and gain perspective of light and dark, so appropriate for this day of the winter solstice.

 For those who have climbed out of the Obsidian Well, you figure out that the depth wasn't so awful to overcome and rise above.  Over time you become an expert at climbing out; you become more skilled and agile in working through the darkness of your life.  It is then, that you have the choice, to either choose the well of darkness or to choose the light from above. 

When you choose the light, it doesn't mean you have forgotten the well and all the lessons there, but you understand those lessons are no longer needed for your growth.  What is needed now is for you to embrace the light and live your life fully open to the miracles which are outside of the well. 

During the longest night of the year, we are challenged to go within, maybe even look at our well.  Take stock of what lies beneath and what is necessary for growth.  This time is contemplative and necessary.  It doesn't have to be messy or hard, it depends on what sort of work has already transpired in your life.  Do you know the walls of the well, do you smell the air from the depths below?  

To be familiar and intimate even with this darkness you carry inside is critical to knowing the being you were meant to become.  It is paramount to allow the time and space for this growth to develop. 

Today the darkness has arrived and we are looking in the obsidian well of our existence.  Each day forward we will embrace more light, allow more love and move away from our well.  To allow more light is to allow more love.  Not love from others... but love of self, love of your life and existence. 

Are you able to say with confidence that you are intimate with your well and love the life you live?  It is a tall order and requires much work to arrive at, if you have suffered greatly under your hand or others per the soul contract of this existence. 

I am here to say I love my life.  When I say I love my life, I say it in earnest, for I have climbed out of the well on more than one occasion and it feels amazing to stand in the light allowing my presence to be wrapped in love.  I so do love my life, it is beautiful through and through, up and down, in and out and all around! 

May the well of darkness serve to allow the light of love to dwell within.  Blessings of light on this solstice night!

Opening of Purpose

Today is 12-12-12.  Many people have written about this day, thought about this day and planned for this day.  No matter if this is a day just like any other, or a day of arrival of your benevolent gifts, it is a day to be fully alive in your present moment. 

So often we are wrapped up in the details of our day, the logistics that have us running from here to there and back again.  Each day is filled with commitments, expectations, needs, wants and things to do.  However, each day is also a day for you to fully step into your life as it was meant to be lived.  It is this purpose of self that we are searching for.  Why am I here, what is the point, what am I to do with my life?  

If we wake to our inner self and listen to our own callings, not the outside pressures of people, places and things, but to our self... we will begin to hear our calling.  The key is to stop long enough so your heart is able to center your mind and calm the body.  Through this synchronicity of self togetherness, you will be available to hear your inner voice. 

Being open is being open to what makes sense for you.  It doesn't mean we open to all and everything, allowing our lives to be derailed, it means that you are open to situations that come and you are able to see this as an opportunity to discern your life path.  Some situations present themselves as items which need to be left as they are.  Other situations offer a treasure for you to discover and cherish. 

MindOverMatterOpenings are as such, these awesome times occurring in your life where you are fully present with the material you are given and the wherewith-all to understand its purpose.  When you arrive at these moments... you are in alignment with purpose.  You are moved intuitively in those times. 

12-12-12 is a moment for many who are ready to align with the action of the Universe and their Purpose.  If more people moved in harmony aligning with their purpose, truly we could alter the current vibrations the planet holds.  Aligning with purpose is benevolence, therefor this alignment would bring about great change of pure thought, action and reception. Imagine how living in this vibration of benevolence would affect your life.  

The Opening has arrived.   The question is what will you do to align with your Purpose?
