The message that continues to make its presence known is centered around transformation; letting go of what we hold onto so tightly, to allow for what is next to come through.
In Avatar there was a line: “It is hard to fill a cup that is already full.” When we spend our time and energy holding on to what WAS rather than looking into today and seeing what IS, we are robbing ourselves of the potential we all carry. Spirit is speaking to us daily, offering us opportunities to create change, to be the architects of our own destiny. Sitting still, we miss out on the gifts and miracles that will be the catalyst to transform our pain, our need to control, our fear, our self-destruction into healing, trust, peace, self-esteem and LOVE.
Can you imagine? Love knocks on your door, desiring to be the center of your life, but asking you one thing in return: you must give and receive her unconditionally. You must put your ego on the shelf, quiet the need to be right, to be understood, to have it your own way…and choose…to LOVE. We must allow ourselves to be broken, so that what we cannot see, but most need can enter the cracks of our soul, of our heart, and weave love into every crevice.
It was 3 or 4 years ago now that I did some work with Debbie Unterman, an alchemical hypnotherapist here in Atlanta. During one of our sessions, I remember so clearly saying that I couldn’t let go, I couldn’t feel or relinquish control because I was like an egg – and if I did let go – I was going to break. And from that session I learned, it was ok to break, for there would be a new me born of what remained. I can promise you that my life has changed dramatically since then; perhaps less on the outside than from within. My controller worked hard inside of my emotions, quieting my voice, dampening my spirit. There were some very tough places along the way, in which I certainly did feel emptiness. But love has and continues to fill those spaces, opening me to richness I could only have imagined.
Take a chance, let go, allow yourself to break, knowing the love and light will fill you up if you let it. Open yourself, your spirit; listen to your own voice. For it is then you will hear the whispers of your heart.
