Spirit & Ease

Happy New Year! So, how are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions or intentions if any? If you’ve been falling down a bit… well, there’s always self-love to cheer you up! You know I’m a huge proponent of self-love, even if I falter more often than not in my own practice. Our wise and loyal SunBear shares some love and compassion with us today, as you will see below.

If you could use some help cleaning up your stinking-thinking, aka monkey mind, and in embracing more love and joy, even as we emerge more deeply into the new year, we can squeeze a couple more people into our “Loving What Is” Workshop this Friday night and Saturday, offered by Joy Day.

Spirit & Ease

SunBear reminds us of this Truth:

Whoever said we are supposed to get it right? We totally made that up!

It’s a common misperception to think that following the spiritual path helps us to become more perfect in every way. We may even believe that we will be rewarded with endless ease, joy and love. This belief may be a remnant of a religious teaching, though we know those are a wealth of contraction too. Think of Job and his whole biblical book of woes! In fact, inviting spiritual growth may create the opposite, at least for awhile, as we become hyper aware of our shadows and short-comings. We may become self-critical when we feel we are not in the flow of creation, attracting the opposite of what we think and say we want.

It’s a paradox, but we will get what our souls need to evolve rather than what our personalities want. We have so much subterfuge running in our subconscious programs, and only bringing this into the light of awareness will aid in becoming the masterful creators we wish to be. And yet, we are not masters of the entire universe, and our desires never trump the greater good of all.

But as we follow the path, one day we realize that even things that suck are divinely designed for a greater purpose. We realize that the things we crave at the personality level, like stuff, really don’t seem as important as the soul-level joys, like peace, love and healthy babies. Then the days of ease, joy and love really do flow. I think. I will let you know when I get there.

Today we celebrate and honor our humanity and all the brilliant and not-so-brilliant ways we show up. Letting BE can be so freeing.

    Ease, Joy and Love…they really do flow and it looks/feels different than our conditioned beliefs have us thinking. Yesterday I collapsed and was almost rescued by an ambulance. The ease, Joy and Love never stopped flowing–they were in my allowing of the Now moment. Conditioned belief would probably say, “Wow what a bad day!” I did not experience it that way at all. As I went down I was aware my body was taking a rest from not enough oxygen and the grace was in allowing the collapse so that all available resources could be gathered and re-routed to critical organs. Sure enough, within minutes I was conscious again and able to crawl into my protective home. In my own space, I welcomed the medics and was able to coherently represent myself and decline their help. I asked for what I wanted and they refused it and we all parted smiling. I felt grateful that I had been seen and supported in those critical moments. Allowing was all that ease, Joy and Love required of me. Then later in the evening after I had rested and fueled my body, I allowed myself to feel vulnerable and questioning and easily available. I saw that ease, Joy and Love were inviting me to share my event with friends on Facebook so that I could feel supported and Loved and so that others could allow themselves to support and Love. My point: ease, Joy and Love are how we receive the Now moment–whatever it brings–and not in getting what we think we want.

  2. Oh Alluvia, What a beautiful, thoughtful, stirring share… I feel your Ease, Joy and Love through all these mysteries in which you travel. Your light blesses us all. As a synchronicity with this blog share, you may remember it on facebook from several weeks ago in a slightly shorter form. I felt called to re-post on the blog, finally, and just as you were having your adventure, of which I was completely unaware until last night. Thank you for reaching out on facebook so that, indeed, we could send love and support. It’s an honor to show up for you. More synchronicity… as you wrote your response, I was doing some deep shamanic work on myself (with the help of spirit guides, of course), including an extraction and soul retrieval. In my journey, I was sent on a quest to find Baby Joy… the joyful essence of Me that’s ready to come home now. Joy from within! Now, I’m all about calling that in… Even Bigger! Love you, Sweet siStar! xoxoxox
