Welcome to my peace filled space. Thank you for joining me here!
My friend, Zeenat, is the loving guide of RAOKA..and she chose this month’s theme of Create!
Oh my! Create is my favorite theme..one could say my life theme. I am constantly opening my heart to the moment as it is presented: evolving, transforming, re-inventing, re-membering, exploring, experiencing, delighting in, allowing for.
And..shh…(!)…I have a secret to share with you.
*grin* don’t tell anyone ‘k?
Right now, in these very moments, as I type these very words..I am creating a new life…for my self (and, yes my children benefit from this, too)…
(Guess what? In these moments, you are reading these words and are creating in your own life! Love how that works!)
I shall tell you how this happened for me..
As you know, I believe in unfolding. If you are unfamiliar with this principle, the gist is to honor the natural cycles of life by opening my heart to the moment as it is presented to me. Not as I wish the moment to be, not applying a label or expectation to the moment, just allowing it to be presented.
The incredible key to anything I choose to create is to allow for it to be created.
I set an intention, such as to live in peace, joy, and love..I invest pure energy into that intention, and I allow it to be presented to me. (Very simply put..however, if you would like further explanation, I do offer a six-week email class to subscribers to this blog, so please sign up, it would be a pleasure to share with you!).
So, I set an intention, invest pure energy, and allow for. Simple.
Before we move on, let’s cover this one basic belief. I choose to create the moment. I. Choose. Things do not happen to me, I am not a victim, nor am I at the mercy of external..I. Choose. And so do you!
Regardless of my spiritual beliefs, reality says that in the moment there are two factors: fear and faith. I am either creating from a place of fear or a place of faith.
I choose the space to create from and I choose the type of energy I am willing to invest (pure, not pure). I believe that faith is heart based while fear is mind based, so I choose to live from–and create from– my heart space (faith). What happens in life..because I am human and not fully awakened…is that when I am at home or surrounded by like-minded people living from my heart space is easy..yet when I am in the mainstream world, I find that I often leave my heart space (faith) and relate from my mind space (fear)..
Yet, I have shared with you that creating thrills me…and creating new and different is one of my passions in life..so to create thrilling/new and different..I embrace fear as my friend, access my heart, open my arms wide and say to God/Universe: YES! I BELIEVE!
(Let’s cover that again.)
I do experience fear..but rather than allow it to be a burden or redirect my steps, I apply love to it, fold it in and create from this amazing place of fear as an inspiration to move past/through my current space..into a faith space so strong, so magical, so magnificent..
That Everything is created!
I will not share details with you here–because all that I am recently creating is so new my children don’t even know the full details yet!–but I will say this..
Sometimes when I refuse to let go of an idea, a connection, a thought, a creation, a belief..a *anything*..I cannot create new and different…and sometimes I cannot create at all, because this old whatever it is I cannot let go of is taking precious space. Why can I not let go? Different reasons: but it all boils down to faith versus fear. Sometimes I even recognize this and still refuse to let go..even though I know it is weighing me down and I am unable to soar as high as I know is possible. Sometimes..oh dear God..here is it: I self sabotage! I get oh so close to what I’ve been asking Universe for, desiring with my Being, you won’t believe this but sometimes I am even holding my dream right here in my hand..and I still cannot embrace it fully, and my hesitation costs me that experience. (Notice it is my choice, I take accountability..I choose to embrace or resist..my choice).
I share this with you..because even if I have been hanging on for so long..hesitant, holding my dream and not progressing any further…I have the choice to at any moment..this freakin’ moment right here!…open my heart wide, and say: YES! I BELIEVE!
I create this moment..so in any moment, I may release my story/smash the old mold/open to new, different, extraordinary!
(Which is what I did this weekend..blows me away! Absolutely! If you saw me today, or spoke to me today, the details of my life are so very different than they were last Friday. You just will not believe what may happen when I open my arms and say YES, please!..and guess what? I do not know how it will all fall into place, I just know that I said yes and the details will work out..in every area!)
When we open our arms wide to God/Universe and say YES! Please..thank you, I Believe!…everything is possible, far beyond even what we can imagine or ask for!
Which reminds me..as this process happens I get so excited that my energy soars! I sometimes blab the details to everyone and anyone who will listen. There are moments, though–such as this one–that it is wise to allow this creative energy to flow through me naturally as I continue to create. These moments are precious, so I share the energy from them with everyone, because this energy is on fire, contagious, inspiring..but I do not share the details yet because the details are mine….(Distinction: yes let’s share energy, not necessarily details).
To wrap this up, I have two things: To honor Zeenat and RAOKA (this link leads you to all of this month’s RAOKA submissions), this month’s theme on my blog will be creating..so please join me as we continue to create together (and I know you will begin to notice my personal transformation through this blog!). And, two: I am offering a free one week clarity session for the month of May..so check it out, pass it on, and let’s enjoy all that we allow to be created!
May I ask, what are you creating? And how does this Feel in your life?
Thank you for sharing with me here:)

I agree that faith over fear is the way to go! I like your statement …
Sometimes when I refuse to let go of an idea, a connection, a thought, a creation, a belief..a *anything*..I cannot create new and different…and sometimes I cannot create at all, because this old whatever it is I cannot let go of is taking precious space.”
I always think that I can’t paint or write because I’m tired, sick or upset about something. Now I realize that it’s all in my mindset of being unable to function as I would like to. What I need to note each time this happens is what are my faith and fear settings today.

Thank you! May we consider it’s faith *with* fear..both are present, it’s what we choose to invest our energy in..so bundle fear up and bring it along…
My refusal to release certain *somethings* within my life created an illusion of safety and comfort for me, but cost me the experience of allowing my heart whispers to become real.
You used the word “can’t” in creating..I am a fabulous cook, yet when I am off balance I “cannot” cook..I haven’t lost my talent, I just don’t feel I can access it, but I may drop this story about my self at any time, this moment I may proclaim I can cook in all circumstances..a new thought creates a new outcome:)

Joy – This is delightful and your excitement and faith spill through your words. I am so excited for you and yet I have no idea what you are experiencing or how life is unfolding for you!!
I am in the process of making space and planting seeds! 😉 and it is all about recognizing that it is “this moment” that we have. We can choose to live from kindness or fear and anger… We can give power to the past or the future. We can choose to be our thoughts over letting them go… And for me, it is all about recognizing that I have today, right now, in this moment… and that is an awesome feeling!!
And wondrous things are growing from the seeds I have planted and that doesn’t mean that there aren’t challenges… but those are just as awesome!

Part of my point is that we don’t need to know “how” or specifically “what”.. just to open our hearts and say yes, please to life. I will share that at this point, I think if I say specicifally what I am going through that will put a cap on what I am allowing God/Universe to do. I have allowed one magnificent change to gently usher in another, many daily!, so my life is nothing today as it was even one week ago..and I imagine if I keep allowing my life will alter even more this week and beyond.
Yes! to planting seeds and the glory we feel as we plant, nourish the soil, then sit and wait for our blossoms..we never know which will germinate, or how rich it will all be..we just keep planting and enjoying the fruits that appear:)

I’m creating a new life! I’m retiring this month. I’m preparing to be a grandmother twice over. I’m writing a book based on my blog. I’m training for my black belt test. This is a great year for creating! Of course any moment is a great time to create. Thanks for focusing on this wonderful opportunity!

Wow! Creating a new life is so awesome..and, as you share, we may create a new life this very moment, regardless of external circumstances. It *is* a great year for creating..I look at what you are creating and think how incredible (yay you!) and that I couldn’t make those moves. See I’ve capped possibility with “couldn’t” so I will reframe and say thank you for all that you reflect to me..very very inspirational.
