Treasures Within You

Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you? -Jack Gilbert

Last week I wrote about what it feels like when we receive a “nudge” from Spirit like an idea or inspiration….

It feels right in every fiber of your being until that moment when fear kicks in and you talk yourself out of it. (Miss the post? Read it here.)

A few days later, a friend of mine sent me an audiobook version of Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. It was a breezy and mild Sunday afternoon, so I decided to head out for a walk, earbuds in hand, and listen to the introduction of the book.

The universe buries jewels within each and every one of us and then stands back to see if we can find them,” the author read. As I heard those words, they resonated quite deeply, and I smiled at the perfect synchronicity of the message.

Those ideas and inspirations are glimpses into what is hidden within you; your deepest potential, purpose and path to creative expression. They are Spirit tapping you on the shoulder and saying “here you go…”

Your only job (and mine) is to listen and have the courage to bring forth the treasures that lie within you.

Many Blessings,

Sheryl

Is it a nudge from Spirit?

Have you ever had an idea that felt like a nudge from Spirit or divinely inspired?

I was sitting on the couch, drinking some Bailey’s and coffee and staring into the fire when just such an idea popped into mind. It felt totally right in every fiber of my being. And for a split second, I experienced a crisp clarity in my vision- there are no other words to describe it. With clarity and purpose, I made the decision to move forward.

But then I fixed dinner, watched Netflix with one of my sons, and as I got up to clean the kitchen, I remembered my previously inspired idea and thought to myself, “Are you crazy?”

I wonder how often it happens that Spirit is working through us; guiding us and leading us toward our purpose, only to be shut down by the rational, reasoning mind.

So how do you know which voice you should heed?

One brings up self-doubt, vulnerability, insecurity, and fear. The other, even if only for a brief moment, makes you feel connected, alive, and pushes toward inspired action.

My bet is on the latter!

Many Blessings,

A Touch of Spirit: Spirit Work

I recently was in a conversation and heard someone refer to herself as a “Light Worker.” This is not an unfamiliar term, but for some reason whenever I hear it, it gives me pause.

I imagine some would say that I am also a Light Worker. I am a trained bodyworker, including Reike and other forms of energy work. I am an author. I teach others what I have learned so they too can recall other lifetimes and how to identify the patterns that reach through space and time, impacting their lives today….

But do you know where my most profound growth as a soul incarnated has come from? Being a mother, my career as a social worker, and the ongoing challenge we all face every day to navigate this human existence and find balance between the spiritual and practical.

You see, every part of our lives is Spirit made manifest; from mowing the lawn to answering the email from your boss to paying the water bill to tucking your kids into bed at night….

It’s when we realize that the very fabric of our lives is Spirit Work that life gets richer. It’s where we find empathy for others. It’s where we find wisdom and understanding, and it’s where we begin to get a glimpse of what it means to live a physical life on the earth plane.

Rich work indeed.

Many Blessings,
Sheryl
