Anyone that knows me, knows that I rarely speak of God. While I believe in God and have my own belief system, I don't usually ever speak of religion. I do however, speak about healing one's life, the mind, body and spirit, as well as the healing and growth of one's soul. And to this, synchronicity often comes up. Synchronicity is a concept, introduced by Carl Jung, which holds that some events are meaningful coincidences that may occur with no relationship but are still meaningful. I believe that everyone gets lost in their journey of life sometimes but synchronicity happens to show you the way.
Deep down, we all know if things are not as they should be. We all have a gut instinct, but some of us pay it no mind. I was once one of those people, and because I didn't listen to or trust my gut, my path in life continuously moved in the wrong direction and I became sick. At some point I learned the lesson and today I listen to my gut. It's through synchronicity, that we realize we are on the right path. Things that many call coincidences are the happenings to us that just feel right, feel good and bring you comfort in some way.
I've just recently found my mother once again in my life after years that have gone by. We had a difficult history and are in the rebuilding phase of our lives. Today, we share things of growth and healing from past pains in our lives together that we were never able to share before. In speaking with my Mother, not too long ago, we were speaking about not living in the past or future anymore. I explained that I've learned that the past cannot be changed, and the future is not promised, so all we have it today and this moment we are currently in.
In trying to heal this relationship, I did have to do the work of going through and dealing with all of my past experiences. I did this with the help of my healer and Reiki. It was a difficult time in my life, but I owned and felt my tragedies, I owned and felt all of my pain and torment, and I also owned and felt my disease of cancer. After I worked through all of my pain, I was able to forgive. I was able to forgive myself as well as others in my life.
This is where the period of release happens, so then I was then given a gift. That gift is the gift of me, the “I Am”. I see the words, “I Am” as my personal reminder every day to live today and in this moment. I also use “I Am” to remember that I Am whatever it is I tell myself that I Am, so today I am kind to myself and tell myself the positive things I am. It's also my reminder to love myself, because in this very moment while typing, I Am love.
I told you all of that to tell you this...In speaking with my mom today, she was so excited to read to me something that she found in her room that we were just talking about the other day. It's written below, by an unknown author. Here's my synchronicity. So take the words in whatever context you like, religious or not, but I want to share it with you. This resonates with me, not so much in a religious context, but that I AM...me!
I was regretting the past
and fearing the future
suddenly my lord was speaking.
My name is I AM.
God paused, and I waited. God continued, “When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard.
I am not there. My name is not I Was.
When you live in the future with its problems and fears, it is hard. I am not there. My name is not I Will Be.
When you live in this moment, it is not hard. I am here. My name is I AM.”
Who are YOU? And where do you live? Do you live your life in the space of this moment? If this resonates with you in any way, or you know someone that it would help to share this with, please do. If you are looking to move away from the pains of the past, traumas or illness in your life, I'm happy to help you do just that. Take the first step and live in this moment, because truly, tomorrow is not promised. And this moment is only as beautiful of a moment as you make it!!
Love and light to you!
My name is
