Welcome! We'll Learn to Think Positive Together!
Hello to all and welcome to one of Pulsewire's Positive Energy Spaces.
Today, we'll practice having a positive mind set and learn to begin to accept who we are, which is our True Self. When you learn to love who you are at a fundamental and spiritual level, no matter what your wisdom tradition, you'll discover the very center of strength that propels you. Nothing can prevent you from allowing your true self to emanate. It's unobstructed by circumstance, and is the very core of who you are.
The true nature, or the true self, has always been naked within us. It's a perfect design, like you. It is your spirit-song. We are all going to sing differently. Thank goodness we have our own instruments, or life would be mighty boring, but the song does operate through us. It's interactive and tactile, and in the earth world, it comes from the heart as an individualized rendition. To express the true self, internalize the concept of who you are and allow it to become part of your fabric of being. Wear it well! It’s a living idea.
Often we spend a lot of time figuring out how to show the world our own unique rendition of self. We want our music to be heard. It’s what makes us feel powerful. Sometimes we think we have no gifts to bring. Nothing could be further from the truth, and the truth is, you were born on this earth with a purpose, to live with gusto, significance, and honesty. The problem is we may think we need to be broadcast on national television, be a famous entertainer, an astronaut, president, political leader or even a man to make a difference. So, we may dismiss the possibility that we already make a difference by just being here.
For most of us, simple, everyday acts are opportunities to demonstrate what already exists within: our true self, our song, the same eternal spirit that infiltrates the core of our being, no matter what family, culture, village, church, religion, or community we choose to belong. We do have permission to sing. In doing so, we discover primary true power, which is the Divine in us, our symphony. We then become empowered.
Empowerment is about self power achieved through knowing the true self, not about winning, joining a protest march, or converting an entire populace to your point of view. Life is about playing your spirit song over and over again in the venue of your own choice.
Why is knowing the source of your own power critical to maintaining a positive outlook on life? Because we are constantly encountering people who attempt to take our power away and diminish our light. Spiritual power is about demonstrating the empowered state consciously and artfully, with love, through your actions and with a deep connection to the present. It is a creative exercise, because you have a choice in how to become living art. You can bring spirit through yourself – that is how you express your individuality, painting a true self portrait in the process. Over time, it will become a quilt of your own mythology, sewn in intricate symbolism and meaning, honoring your inner journey and God. When self awareness of spirit occurs, the art then becomes YOU. You have realized your true self power. And that is why having a firm, unshakable centeredness in who you are will allow you to overcome any adversity placed in your path.
Today, let’s affirm together:
“I AM an important spark of the Divine, just like everyone on the planet. There is but one dimension of love, and we all channel from the same source. There is but one universal order, even though we may speak to that voice in different languages. I am challenged to step outside my intellectual boundaries and facilitate a loving acceptance for people in my life, no matter how they label their source. I am a universal human filled with the presence of the Divine wherever I go.”
Today, fill your thoughts with an appreciation of who you are and the unique spark you bring to the world. Remember, you enhance all creation with your presence. You are a gift!
