For your consideration……

I had to ask today if this message was meant only for me or for the blog. But I am assured that it is for the blog.

Today we are being asked to keep our life “fluid”. To do that we have to be willing to release all that we hold on to so tightly. We tend to hold on to what scars us and what we love and cherish. We do that because we feel it defines us. We feel it is our identity.

But what we are told today is that the “intent or purpose” of everything that enters our life impacts our soul leaving a footprint. We don’t have to dwell on it of try to hold it. We can let flow right on through. Its work or lesson is done.

Holding onto sorrow, hurt, grudges or judgement creates blockages that attract more of the same as we look for justification to support them. The truth is we don’t need them. The lesson learned was in the moment. It serve no purpose in this one.

The same thing goes for those things we love and cherish. Holding it and not giving it its freedom blocks its growth and all of its infinite possibilities. We want to hold tightly to what we love dearly but we have to trust its potential enough to let it flow freely.

The more we release the more space we create for expansion and growth in our life purpose. We are being asked to just go with the flow. Receive and release. Release and receive.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray….listen to your authentic self.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Journal or recount at the end of the day the goods and the not so goods. Release the good with gratitude. Release the not so goods up for the highest healing for it no longer serves you.

What made me smile yesterday…….

-I survived a horrendous drive in the biggest whiteout I could imagine meeting up with relatives for a funeral. Once we met up, my cousin, Jim, drove. Whew. Thankfully we drove out of the winter storm.

-My friend, Jackie, who talked to me during some intense moments despite the fact it was 6:30 in the morning.

-A long road trip giving my Aunt, Uncles, Cousin and I time to catch up. It was fun and comforting.

-A funeral for my Uncle Chuck that was a celebration as he had planned.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
