“Searching for meaning, searching for worth, I am directed inward.
I excavate through the layers of resentment,
guilt, sadness and shame
to find that my identity is none of these emotions
but a beautiful spirit that waits just beneath.
Buried beneath the tiers of buried tears,
I am discovering the unique facets of my spirit being.
Quietly she has waited for the rage of the ego to subside,
for her voice is gentle
and is not easily heard over the rant.”

For your consideration……

Recently we have been asked to clear our plates, lighten up, play etc. Today we are being asked to “peel back the layers” we have put upon ourselves.

What layers? Why? Over the years of our lives we have encountered different people and situations that we felt we had to “adapt” to. We felt that our true self…our authentic self was not good enough, not strong enough, not worthy enough etc. So we learned to “morph” into the person we felt we needed to be. And it is most often different to people in different situations.

Think about it. Are you the same person at work as you are at home? Are you the same with a stranger as you are with your best friend?

The result of all of this “morphing” we have done is that we have created layers. Today we are being asked to start peeling them back. Can you do that all at once?

That is highly unlikely. But we can start today. We can start to notice in our various situations and encounters if we are presenting our truest self. Are we feeling open and true down to our soul level? That is where we are trying to get to. That is where we will find our success. That is where we have the most to offer to the world. That is the HOPE.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…….

-Meditate….in the silence and peace of meditation is where we will find our authentic self.

-Drink lots of water to help you stay clear.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths. Remember that breath is always available and will always help you back to your center.

-Do some EFT. Tapping will change the energy when you need it changed….first in yourself and ultimately the energy you attract.

-How are we doing with the one thing we were supposed to add to our life to help us grow and find peace?

-Notice if you are being your truest self in your communications. What about the others you are dealing with? How do you feel about that? Journal it.


What made me smile yesterday…..

-A great day with Alex. We got great pedicures and had a great lunch.

-We met the nicest young men fishing on our dock. They are 10 and 13 and fished from morning until 11:00 pm last night.

-A new book I ordered came and I love it. It is a book on “Healing Crystals”. I confess I use crystals but do not know much about them. This is fun.

-A great conversation catching up with Shannon. They had a great vacation, a great Easter and she was having a great day with her friend, Jennifer. You can’t ask for more than that.

-My friend, Gena, did a reading for the Angels Teach website and it turned out to be much the same as the message we were given for this blog. Don’t you just love affirmations?


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
