Spiritual knowledge versus living it: you know those people that talk a good game? I used to be one of ’em.

It’s interesting how much more humbling this journey called life has gotten as I add years. Recently, I’ve been searching for the words to express this deep knowing that embodying shifts is definitely not the same as reading about spiritual wisdom.

I feel it, know it, live it and understand it … but the explanatory words just didn’t come, until I was listening to an Indian Guru.

I remember when I was in my 20’s, I’d recite “The Road Less Travelled” and “Women Who Run with the Wolves” verbatim. Oh yes, I sounded really smart but I wasn’t living it.

To really emphasize the point, I’m going to embellish the scenario the Guru was explaining.

Let’s say you go to lots of amazing restaurants. The best. The hidden gems. You don’t order but simply read, then memorize the menus but never actually taste the food.

That’s what learning is about, and being fascinated by the interesting ins and outs of spiritual wisdom is like. I don’t know about you, but I’d definitely rather experience than read about having meaning and fulfillment in my life.

I’m here to live it – actually ordering from the menu and then savoring, smelling, eating, and expressing love for the food lovingly enjoyed. The menu becomes secondary, a signpost but nothing compared to actually experiencing and enjoying the meal.

We teach our loved ones so much more through example, rather than offering empty words which don’t connect at a cellular level.

So here’s to the ‘embodiment’ of life at a cellular level and having the most delicious journey of discovery.

Not theoretically, but actually.

By the way, my Agent of Awakening friend, dive into “living it” because you rock!

With love,

Ps. Thought I’d give a definition of ‘embodiment’ so you’d know I don’t mean integration. I actually mean something much bigger, different from integrating with shifts and ‘aha’s’. Embodiment in our ‘Wide Awakening’ world is about understanding how to live in overflow and thrive, allowing curiosity to drive the journey, and living experientially.



Undistinguished ways of being…

Undistinguished ways of being…

Do you have unidentified embodied habits that drive the bus of your life?

Until we understand what it is to embody our way of operating in alignment with the laws of life, life is just a series of fix-it actions.

Embodied old, automatic operating systems disappear when the entire operating system is aligned with thriving. So, instead of fixing what doesn’t work, we actually come to a life frequency more aligned with how consciousness works. Those old patterns simply cannot exist anymore as they don’t match our new way of plugging into life.

A recent incident with my family is a great example. There are clues how to permanently get out of doing ‘the work’ of fixing our protective identities, or working so hard on repatterning.

Righteousness in yourself and others

Righteousness in yourself and others

Righteousness in yourself and others. What does that even really mean?

It’s all over the media and throughout the political spectrum and, as a result, it is probably prevalent in some of your social circles with friends and family.

Where does it come from? Why do we get that way? How do we define it? What frees us from the need to react to it or use righteousness?

The subject of righteousness has come up for me several times in the last couple of months. I was speaking with one of my clients and we could both see so many angles on righteousness. Sometimes I can get that way, but I catch myself because it really doesn’t feel good. It also isn’t an inclusive way of speaking, and blocks fluid shifts. If you are all about making fluid shifts … well, you know.

Why ‘doing what is presenting’ is so important

Why ‘doing what is presenting’ is so important

The following question was posted by Trudy, one of our Flight School graduates, in our Agents of Awakening Community and I felt it would assist to share my reply in this week’s inspiration in case you missed it, or you’ve not yet joined us there … (what are you waiting for?) 😉

Trudy’s Question: “When do you know to take the lead, knowing what you know, and observing unfolding events as a neutral party?”

The concept that is most important in answering this question well is ‘DOING WHAT PRESENTS’. It’s actually the most simple of concepts, and yet it’s foreign to us as we’re so prone to running around in unconscious survival mode. Kids, groceries, goals, oil changes, banking, relationship reactions, fears about the world or the country, and so on.
