Changing Faces…

“No matter what may have happened yesterday, a new day of fresh possibility has dawned. You’re not the same person today as you were yesterday.” (Daisaku Ikeda)

Every moment is an opportunity to change your story and start again. As we move through our daily lives, we are always evolving even if we don’t realise it at the time. It is true that we are not the same person as we were yesterday. In some ways that can bring a great deal of comfort. It all depends on perspective.

Wherever we are in life is where we are meant to be. It is full of lessons and full of surprises too. The most important thing is to focus on what we have now and what we can do now. There is always something we can do… always.

I can think of many situations over the years that felt impossible to overcome but what has really helped me is to have that deep knowing and faith in something larger than myself. It has helped me to look beyond myself and see new possibilities. In doing so it has created space and allowed changes to bring forth what is needed for my soul evolution.

Sometimes in life we don’t get what we want but I believe we get what we need. Navigating ourselves through changes is not always easy and sometimes its best to go with the flow, letting our experiences reveal to us more of who we are and what we need to know when the time is right. In the meantime, be glad and appreciative of what you have and life will always give you more to be grateful for. Celebrate who you were and who you are becoming.

Love and blessings,

The Circle Of Life…

Gratitude is the heart of all Life

Sometimes in order to open a new door, it requires leaving situations behind that no longer serve you. It can mean leaving a whole life behind and although it may be all you have ever known, you know that does not mean that this is all there is. There can be so much more if you believe in yourself and have faith in what you cannot see with the naked eye but see inside every nerve and fibre of your being. It is there waiting in the wings to set the world alight, ready for you to be who you have always been.

I feel so deeply moved right now that I really wanted to share that energy with you. There was a time in my life I never thought I’d make it through alive and here I am living a new life that is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. During that time of transition, clearing the pathway to my own soul has been very hard and took me to places that were uncomfortable and upsetting, yet magical and miraculous all at the same time. I cried and I laughed and then cried and laughed some more, always feeling grateful for my experiences and the people around me who have supported me through it.

While I may never forget, I can see clearly the gifts and the wisdom from the overcoming. It was all meant to be to show me the way to my own heart. I do feel a little sad because I am going through a very big ending right now. However, on the other side of that is a very new beginning which fills me with so much joy too. It gives me hope for a bright future that is already shining on me and I make a choice every day no matter what to see that. I smile as I write this, knowing that everything I need is already here. I am that I am.

Thank you for being here and being you.

In love and light,
Lisa

 

Are you full of it?

When I think of fullness, I think of food (naturally lol) and how sometimes I eat too much. Other times I think of being full as being bombarded with too much information, especially with the advancement of technology in our time, or the need to undertake many tasks and run lots of errands to get by in daily living. It’s always the things that need to be done to be part of this world. It made me wonder though, perhaps there is a different kind of fullness to consider; a fullness that is enriching and nourishing to our souls and reignites our spirit.

I have been feeling out of sorts this week and although I know it will pass (it always does), it makes me feel like someone else other than me. I made a choice today to show up as my perfectly imperfect self despite this because sometimes you have to. Otherwise what is the alternative? There is an ebb and flow in life and to understand this is always reassuring to me.

My decision to be here and write this post was sparked by an article I wrote last year about how I overcome my greatest challenges through my faith and daily spiritual practice. I knew that there was a chance that no-one would ever read it but to just write it and know that the Universe would hear my voice and the acknowledgment of my journey was enough for me. I heard back from the magazine recently and my experience has just been printed for the August edition which is exciting and I am absolutely thrilled. I had completely let it go and not thought about it for nearly a year so it has been an interesting turn of events. It’s definitely a lesson in letting go and how it is in this complete surrender that what you want will come back to you. Sometimes it does not come back to you in the way that you envisaged or even at all. If it doesn’t then it is making room for something even better to come along that our minds cannot even comprehend.

As I read the article I had long forgotten about, my heart was completely filled with gratitude for my life and the people in it. My worst circumstances, which made me feel like life was against me at the time, became the best thing that happened to me. The love, support and miracles that occurred were the best things of all because I was open to it and that is the fullness I am talking about. It is the best kind and always available to us no matter what.

So my question to you today is, are you full of it?

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
(Roald Dahl)
