Can We Make A Difference?

Heroine's Journey

This is what 75 women declared with conviction on the Autumn Equinox of 2013 in Ventura, California.


What does that statement truly mean to each of us?  Does it mean we’ve learned all of our lessons in life and can handle any situation that arises with ease and grace?


OR ~ Does it mean we are on the path of learning who we are at our very core?


When we make a BOLD statement claiming “we’ve got it”, can we consider the possibility that the Universe hears our statement and gives us opportunities through life circumstances to prove it?  Those opportunities might possibly allow us to demonstrate the ways in which we’ve walked into our challenges with new tools to tackle any task or emotional circumstance.  


How are we showing up for ourselves and each other through the good times and difficult times?  Have we learned and embraced the basic principle that Jesus taught,  “Forgive them, for they know not what they do”?  Can we forgive in every situation that arises and invokes lower density emotions like:  FEAR, BETRAYAL, ANGER, JUDGEMENT, BLAME & SHAME?


Can we learn to see that we are all unique souls evolving in consciousness by learning to open our eyes to repeating patterns in our lives?


Relationship challenges seem to appear in many forms through family, friendship, colleague and romantic dynamics.  Can we look at these situations and circumstances through they eyes of Spirit?


How can we keep our hearts open to LOVE when an emotion comes up that makes us feel uncomfortable or hurt?  Can we LOVE others and ourselves through any scenario?  When we act out of an emotion that doesn’t serve the GREATER GOOD FOR ALL ~ can we forgive ourselves and each other?


Or when our family and friends, colleagues and lovers, push their judgments or fears onto us, can we LOVE them for what they don’t know or LOVE them while they process and learn their individual life lessons?  Can we look inside of ourselves and look at every angle of a challenging scenario to recognize our own part or contribution in the situation?  Can we allow the emotions to flow through us rather than become a gaping wound that grows inside of us, lingering to cause even more pain?


Can we LOVE in the face of Anger and Hatred?

Can we LOVE in the face of Fear?

Can we LOVE in the face of Jealousy?

Can we LOVE in the face of Intolerance?

Can we LOVE in the face of Ignorance?

Can we LOVE in the face of Greed?

Can we LOVE in the face of Lust?

Can we LOVE in the face of Apathy?


And if we can’t; then what?  Do we allow these emotions to rule over us and eat away at the very center of our Being?  Or can we come to know our own DIVINITY?  Can we feel our Spark, the seed inside of each one of us that shows us we come from LIGHT ~ THE SOURCE OF ALL THAT IS?


We can see our Soul as a Golden Thread weaving the fabric of life with every breath, every thought, every deed, word and action we put into motion in each second of our earthly lives.  Are you ready?


We can aspire to walk in Beauty, Grace, Trust, Harmony, Service, JOY, Gratitude Forgiveness, Acceptance, Compassion, Abundance and most of all LOVE. Are you able?


Can we see each step in front of us as a choice?  A choice to BE LOVE IN ACTION… to BE PEACE IN ACTION, to BE FORGIVENESS, GRATITUDE AND TRUST IN ACTION, and when we fall or step off of our path, can we embrace or human~ness and Love ourselves and each other as we learn what appears to be “mistakes” in our lives, are really just opportunities for our Souls to Grow?


May we learn to communicate with compassion and give up our ego’s need to be right. May we step out of tolerance and into acceptance with the ancient wisdom inside of us that holds the space for us to see ourselves in each other.  May we embrace our diversity in all situations and use discernment to steer us away from areas that make us uncomfortable while still allowing LOVE to flow gracefully to all life.


May we learn our soul lessons and to experience emotion and passion during the short time we have the privilege to be in a human body.  


May each of us know and FEEL eternal LOVE from the Source of All that always surrounds us in every moment.  May we draw strength from it and be able to give from the overflow of that Love to others in an infinite Circle of Radiant Love and Gratitude for the honor and opportunity to live and breathe on this glorious planet called earth, our first Mother.
