Together with my husband, I again watched the finale of the Oprah show. It moved me immensely the first time around, but this second time was a powerful experience–especially connecting to such depth of being and wisdom just before going to sleep. Taking that energy with me into my dreams has created another shift in my reality to say the least.
So much of what we experience in our everyday lives is all about our perspective. Through what lens do we look? How do we filter our interactions with others? What’s true friends, is that every moment of our lives carries the potential to connect us with the sacred. Divine energy is always present–in ourselves, in our loved ones, co-workers–in the entire world around us. Whether or not we see, feel and hear the messages of Universal presence truly depends on our ability to tune in.
There is one segment of Oprah’s final program that struck me deeply both times I watched it. She is talking about the truth that each one of us, in our own way is seeking validation. With a pause she goes on to share the following dialogue that lives within the spirit of us all:
Do you see me?
Can you hear me?
Does what I say matter to you?
There is an enormous amount of spiritual voltage in this language. Take a moment, feel yourself asking these questions of others. The velocity with which your spirit travels through each of them and into the vibration of your being is beyond comprehension. I’m not even sure we can yet fathom the high altitude of such depth, such sacred dialogue with our soul and those of others. Really allow yourself to FEEL this friends. FEEL these questions from your soul speak with authentic presence, inner purity and authority of your own worth and being. Nearly shatters your inner world, does it not?
Now shift your position and consider someone with whom you may have conflict or someone with whom you share a close relationship and are often growing together and working through the various pieces of life. Imagine that person saying these words to you, from a humble space of truth. Breathe the intense vibration of this exchange into the depths of your being and let it rest there a moment. Can you feel the spirit, the very soul of this individual connecting with you through this dialogue? And now….what do you feel your own response to be? Sometimes we just don’t wish to be bothered….with seeing and hearing others–or ourselves.
This is high altitude soul work friends. To contemplate the power of these questions and the call to your soul that accompanies the energy they carry–this is the work of the true seeker and mystic. Shadow work carrying with it the potential to shift your world, to rock the very lens through which you have experienced everything in your environment. What if each time you felt conflict with yourself and/or others you paused and practiced the art of validation? What if instead of engaging the defenses of your ego self you instead chose to elevate your spirit to the Universal language of *seeing, *hearing beyond what the human eyes and ears are able?
How greatly would this change your world? Indeed, how unfathomable the impact this practice would have on others? Are you ready to welcome such power into your life? What to you, is the price for such high altitude living?
THIS my friends is Grace. To allow yourself to move beyond what the ego desires and instead live from the sacredness of your soul. And this is the call that comes to all who read this note today….how ready are you to step into the Divine being that you are?
These are the whispers loved ones. They aren’t always soft and gentle. At times the voice that comes from our heart and soul is one filled not only with illumined presence, but the thundering roar of change. How willing are you to listen? Indeed, how in tune do you wish to be….with the whispers of your heart……
