Trusting In Our Spiritual Process

So often when we experience difficulties in our lives, we can feel disllusioned and fall into self-pity.  We ask "why me?" If we can step back and trust that these experiences were pre-designed by our own souls to learn and expand as spiritual beings-things take on new meaning. It comes down to trust and faith, not so much in things outside of ourselves but rather  in the amazing and powerfully capable beings we are. We have been conditioned since birth to llive and experience life outside of ourselves, worshiping external factors. This is not natural. We must teach ourselves to spend less time looking outward and more time looking inward for answers, guidance, love, etc. When difficult situations rear their ugly little heads, don't feel victimized, trust your soul and be open to the growth being presented to you. Believe that you chose this experience for a reason and lean into it with acceptance. Each experiience in our lives brings us a step closer to the spiritual beings we truly are. Namaste friends  MB

Know Your Strength

(Words to me from my friend Bob that I pass on to other female warriors)

Your looks may be beautiful today
your strength may prevail for now
but your true strength is in your character
the woman that is you today and tomorrow

Where looks fade with time
strength of character increases
making an older more frail woman
stronger than in her youth...

May the blessings of smiles, laughter and fun
be your joy while you are young...however
may the Blessing of Peace, Joy, Happiness
and Love be your life, today and forever.

Faith isn't necessarily about "truth." It is something undefinable that grounds us, nourishes our souls and gives us purpose. So many people struggle with faith because they try to put it into concrete terms..."this is "this, and "that is that." Faith never needs to be explained or defined-it is blind hope. It is the spiritual glue that binds our souls. It is that unexplainable thing that gives us something to believe in. Don't try to define your faith-just believe that you belong here and are a divine spirit. When you stop trying to put your faith into tangible terms-then you shall know true faith.

I have spent many years trying to undo the effects of a seemingly difficult childhood. Moving to Hollywood to become an actress only compounded all the insecurity and low self-esteem I had. What I have realized overtime is that, what I thought was once a lack of discipline on my part to consciously will myself to be more happy and centered was the greatest mistake I had been making. Let me explain: Our subconscious minds are very faithful to our conscious thoughts-yet once memories and images become embedded in that region of the brain, then it is really difficult to reprogram it with just conscious efforts. Think of the subconscious mind as the hard drive in a computer. Like the mind, a computer downloads programs that can be running in the background all the time. SO we might consciously affirm that we love ourselves and want to change, yet the moment we stop consciously telling ourselves these things, our subconscious mind goes right back to negative self-defeating thoughts. 
 At first blush, this might sound complicated, but it really is quite simple I assure you. We are not the sum of our DNA or genetics-we are thinking, breathing individuals who have the power to change our thoughts at any moment WE chose. This is where meditation and hypnosis become really important- in particular, deep meditation using theta waves. By getting to a deepened state of relaxation we can awaken the subconscious mind and reprogram it. It is not difficult, it just takes a willingness and a desire to change. I encourage you to make the commitment to reprogram all those self-defeating messages that are enabling you from living the life of joy you deserve. Don't allow yourself to continue to be a victim of life and family history- believe you can change what you cannot see. have the courage to soak in this possibility and then make it happen!  Namaste
