Space of the Sacred

A spiritual journey is what we are all here for–whether we are consciously traveling its roads or not.  Karma weaves itself into the events of our lives as we play out the sacred contract we have come here to fulfill in being who we are.  There are many words to describe this process–transformation, enlightenment, spiritual alchemy, awakening. And we will encounter our truest self through the mirror of our relationships, whether we are aware of it or not.  What we do with this reflection is one of the key elements in connecting to the intensity and depth of the soul.

As we become more and more aware of the dialogue shared with the most interior sanctuary of ourselves, we learn to feel its language.  A deep longing to find connection to the greatness of the Universe calls out to us, seducing us into its embrace.  We begin to recognize our emotions as pathways into Spirit.  At times, we even feel the beckoning to let go of yet another layer.  Although it may be painful or uncomfortable, it brings us to a depth of intimacy with the Sacred that we desperately desire.  And once we move through the discomfort, as we open our eyes to the exquisite nature of the Divine, we understand the alchemical nature of the experience.

I believe we can sense it at times–a knowing inside ourselves that it’s time to peel another layer.  Time to let go of something our soul no longer needs on this journey, “something” that stands between us and Divine ecstasy.  The impulse will be to turn away and avoid what we fear might accompany the release of human “stuff,” but what we must realize is the Universe holds space for us.  Lovingly supporting us through even the darkest moments, and emerging with us in Light–or ENLIGHTENED–on the other side.

Honor the voice of your soul.  Allow yourself to hear its call…..step into it…..ever awakening your consciousness….drawing closer to your innermost sacredness…….through the whispers of your heart……
