Back in 2014 Linda from www.litebeing.com began an inspiring challenge asking us to look back on our experience in 2014 and consider four questions:
Which lessons did you learn?
How did you serve others?
What blessings did you receive?
Was there something you lost that turned out to be a blessing in disguise?
Did you receive any “gifts” in terms of powers or skills?
This challenge brought me new insights and helped me transform my Human trauma into blessings for myself. It made me face heartache, brought me closer to my Divine self and in the depths of more anguish, inspired me to write about it in my poem I included in my Awakening Story Your Magnificent Self… A Journey to Freedom by Barbara Franken, and blogged about it in my post… Reunion of the Divine & Human Selves that I recently turned into a song and produced a music video One Body Consciousness to help promote this great time of Awakening and Integration of Body, Mind & Spirit and my work as Creative Visionary… holding the vision of New Earth for all Humanity to find peace, joy and love within and come together in unity.
Looking back now… (the middle of 2018), I realise more than ever, if we are to survive this great change and shift of consciousness, we must not hang on in our comfort zone or ego needs, but allow the Human to surrender to our Divine self (the Master and Creator we each truly are) and flow in ease and grace into our highest potential in a new adventure… beyond anything known.
I challenge YOU to answer these beautiful questions about your last year, may they inspire YOU to dive deep within, face and transform any fear or pain that brings YOU closer to YOUR Divine self and highest potential.
Enjoy re-reading my story looking back at 2014.
At the beginning of the year, Tom and I were back in our favourite place, Cancun, Mexico celebrating our 25 years together… enjoying a warm, relaxing and peaceful ‘wintertime’ together on sparkling white sands, in turquoise waters, under blue skies and heart shaped fluffy clouds. It is our special place, filled with magic… that cleanses and energises our being… as we prepare to take on the rest of the year. IAM always thankful that we can return here time and time again as it feels like coming home. It makes me truly happy. Tom and I are planning our return for early next year, at this very moment.
Another place I love is our new home we found this year, along the seashore of Benalmadena, it too is a magical place that feels comfortable, safe and tranquil and I know that we will be here most of the time as it makes me truly happy.
I count both these magical places as my blessings that have given me wonderful gifts too, all year through… inspiration to express and create my writings and paintings and a constant feeling of joy moving within my Body Consciousness that shows me that IAM in the most perfect place. My happiness radiates out into the Environment for others to see, feel and take on as their own. This is the service, through myself, that I give to others. In this way my only requirement is to keep focused on myself and BE the Creator IAM.
It was an important truth I taught myself this year… even though my Human self is taking her time putting it all into perspective. They do say when things go wrong or when you lose something it can be a blessing in disguise or some good can come out of it. Deep within I know this to be true… and sore… and is taking some deep reflection and a little more time for all of me to truly expand into the wisdom of it all.
It all began last year when I felt a grand dream start to fall apart and at the end of this summer it was quite definitely ripped completely away. Ripped away in a manner I could never have imagined and has left me with feelings of anger, hatred, disappointment, sadness and abandonment. I know now and maybe I always knew that it wasn’t the right dream for me, but gave myself this experience for the blessing and wisdom.
It wasn’t the right dream for me because it didn’t have myself as the main focus, but instead, the lives of others. Helping others is a service, but not if it is to our own detriment, putting others first and/or takes away their space and/or experience.
IAM now clear about how and when I can help others and if it resonates with them, they can ask me for my help or my presence. Otherwise IAM taking good care of myself with compassionate psychology… consciously breathing and accepting it all, being in my own presence, loving myself unconditionally and serving myself first. I know that I always did my very best in my helping others and planted many seeds of love which maybe one day will be discovered. I enjoy living and creating in each moment and observe from afar the experience of others, without judgement.
What a wonderful chestful of treasure I have discovered this year…I feel my consciousness expanding with new wisdom and truths of who I truly AM… I walk confidently with an abundance of potential into the new year 2015.
Thankyou Linda for this opportunity to share my experiences this year with you all… whether happy or sad, I remember they are all experiences and beautiful gifts I continue to give to myself.
