24/7 Bliss

There are times when we all reach that beautiful place of exquisite joy and bliss. Perhaps we are viewing a magnificent sunset, perhaps we have been moved by someone’s loving intention and behavior toward us, perhaps we are pursuing the work of our heart and time seems irrelevant and immaterial.

Regardless of what has produced this wonderful state, it is truly something we treasure. We would like to have more of it. We would like to fill our lives with it. And, according to some, we can.

It’s hard to wrap our brains around that thought. Life has lots of challenges and difficulties and we might wonder how can we feel bliss when we are experiencing these moments.

The answer apparently lies in our vibrational level and in our intention.

Things which operate at the same vibrational level are attracted to each other. Those that are not must rearrange themselves or leave.

If we begin the day in a wonderful, highly motivated, high energy state (translate: high vibration) and then have a debilitating physical experience or emotional upset we could choose to invite the pain or stress or frustration to join us in our higher vibration. If we can hold the vibration we were already experiencing, the physical ailment or upset must either raise its vibration (and, thereby, eliminate the pain or stress) or leave the premises since we have already staked and are now keeping our claim to this high vibrational note..ergo, lower vibrations (translate pain or upset) must find another home.

Everything depends on our intention. Do we want to maintain the higher state of joy and connection to all that is? Are we willing to make that a conscious intention? And, even more importantly, do we believe that we are spiritual beings occupying by our very nature this beautiful, high vibration…unless we choose to dip into the density of earth school to experience those lower states of being?

Bruce Lipton, leading edge scientist and author of The Biology of Belief, points out that our DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts. And our DNA controls our life.

The choice is apparently in our hands. Do we want to send ourselves the positive message and belief that we, as spiritual beings, are capable of reaching and maintaining that glorious high vibration or do we want to send the message that we are subject to circumstances outside ourselves and, therefore, are victims when these difficulties occur?

It might be fun to practice holding our higher vibration when these challenges appear and perhaps discover delight in the knowingness that it is we who determine the direction and create the enchantment, joy and bliss of our day.

Divine Feminine Energy

As we celebrate the beautiful occasion of  Mother's Day, my thoughts are drawn to the power and beauty and significance of Love as it is expressed in Divine feminine energy.  This beautiful Grace which streams so elegantly from the hearts of women.  Such an exquisite blessing.  It seems to be their birthright . . . their gift to the world.

Somehow, women intuitively know that when someone is experiencing pain, in that moment there is nothing more powerful, more healing than for that person to feel understood To have someone mirror back to them an understanding of the intensity of their pain or distress and how it is affecting them.

This essential longing to be understood is a vital part of the human condition.  Without this loving kindness it is difficult for an individual to move forward into an acknowledgment of what is transpiring.  And, without that acknowledgment, that acceptance, it is impossible to move through the experience to the other side. . . . to the peace that comes through Surrender.

The feminine heart holds the key to the unfolding of this process.  We are all so in need of this exquisite form of compassion.  When we receive it, we find the energy to lead ourselves through the dark night of the soul.  This precious feminine offering is the antidote to loneliness, to abandonment.  It promotes caring, a sense of safety, connection.

Because our world is changing and evolving it is wonderful to note that feminine energy is now being expressed by males as well. And, in return, masculine energy is leading by example the demonstration of the importance and value of steadfastness and devotion.

How wonderful that we an all minister to each other, sharing the precious and pleasing endowments of our earthly lives!

A Cheap Date

We all like to smile at the thought of having a beautiful experience on a shoestring. Some of us even consider the ability to enjoy this one of our finest qualities. Here is one of the best “cheap date” ideas I have ever heard of or experienced – GROUNDING.

I am a newbie at this one but I have just engaged in this adventure and totally love it. 

The fascinating thing is I was not consciously trying to do this.

I have been learning about it (and apparently soaking it up through entrainment) but I didn’t purposely go there. Apparently, I have been rewarded for the time and attention I have given to the concept for it just "Happened".
 And I recognized it later when I felt its effects.

So much in life feels fleeting.  We have a joyful experience and totally love the moment but then…it is gone. Of course, we always get more moments with the potential for more wonderfulness but just imagine if we could anchor or ground a moment which feels completely breathtaking.

And we can. By our awareness and invitation.

One of these moments for me was a leisurely stroll last evening (the Italians call it a passeggiata). 

I had a great yearning to connect with nature in the country. It had been raining lightly yesterday and the ground was damp with wetness, the grass with dew. The frogs were croaking their spring mating ritual. The earth was perfumed with clouds of 

The night was magical. I so loved it…and, without even being aware, I 
grounded it for myself.Another way of putting this, I think, is to say I moved it into my heart and gave it space there, sharing my residence of  love.  Even now that passeggiata holds me in its enchanting spell.

We have so many opportunities to ground our beautiful moments and, when we do, we feel satiatedsatisfied….in sync with the grace of the world.

To do this we need to be engaged in the present moment and moving with 
conscious intention.

This can occur throughout the day…even in the most simple of tasks – in the breaking of bread, in the sipping of wine, and especially in the pleasure of knowing you are loved.

Consider this divine experience of GROUNDING and consciously invest in your treasury of beautiful moments…truly one of the greatest gifts of our human experience.
