MY SPIRITUALITY HEIGHTENS EVERY DAY

“Life is very Spiritual now – forever changed by this horrible cancer – but I appreciate it so much. I really enjoy time alone now, more than ever.” ” I feel I am on a different plane from everyone else.”

“I do enjoy this level of consciousness and spirituality I have reached. Everything is so important now.” ” I have done a tremendous amount of ‘soul’ work since this began and I have come to know myself very well. I know what I need and what I don’t need.”

“What a revelation!! How freeing that is! Life is a spiritual journey and it’s not about ‘who did what to whom’ – it’s about spiritual growth and lessons we (the Universe) have chosen to teach our souls.”

We have to give Erin a lot of credit for how she handled dealing with an illness that is so all consuming. She took the high road and learned everything she possibly could about the cancer and more importantly about her connection to her soul. She did not feel sorry for herself but instead paid attention to the power of love she held for herself and others. She passed on to us what she learned, so we too could honour the spirit deep within us.

What we can cherish from Erin’s words is to make a connection with our soul now – rather than wait for something traumatic to be the catalyst needed to make us ‘awaken’.

TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME AND ENJOY EVERY MOMENT
“I appreciate every moment and am very conscious of not doing anything or saying anything that would make me want to take that moment back. The only thing that consistently gets me out of depression and makes me appreciate what I have is to live for today only and give up trying to change the things I don’t have control over! Works every time! Life is very short, too short to let a single moment pass that is not meaningful.”

Taking one moment and one day at a time is difficult for most of us. We tend to focus on the past or worry about the future – or at least reach for it – when in fact the real power and enjoyment we have is in the present moment. In the blink of an eye we can miss what is so important. The age old worry chart, that demonstrates how futile worry is, makes us realize we can do very little about the past and future – so focus on today and use each moment wisely. How do you feel about these ideas??

Learn to Speak Your Truth

” I do not always speak my truth and it’s gotten me into trouble. We all must speak our truth – always. One day at a time. I have to speak my truth because if I don’t it all gets stuck in my gut and helps this disease grow. That, I believe, is how it got there in the first place – years of lying to myself and others about how I really feel and what I really need.”

Speaking our truth has an evasive meaning for most of us. We think about it in the sense of honesty toward others and tend to ignore the deep truth of our reality within. Our truth is the essence of who we are – our sense of being. It is our genuine honest gut feeling about what our identity is as a person, a soul. Our meaning and purpose in life is our truth. Do you know yours?

Nobody is going to cure you – but you.

” My personal opinion is that it’s paramount you understand that no one is going to cure you without your involvement.  You need to do research, read and investigate yourself in order to understand what is best for you.  I hope to help others through this awareness of self empowerment. In short take control of the Beast – the illness and it’s related journey.  It gives you power in your life when so much is being taken away from you.”

The empowerment Erin speaks of involves awareness and choice about how you live your life in general.  Inclusion of mind, body, soul and emotions are necessary to truly know yourself and be in charge of all aspects of your life be it illness, relationship, career, family or whatever.  You need to take charge, ask for help when needed but certainly don’t be a puppet manipulated by  strings pulled by others.

From Erin, “We’ve never been taught to listen to our bodies and it’s tragic.  I somehow knew the results of my surgery before they told me.  If I had been more in tune with my body I would have known earlier.  I hadn’t paid attention and I didn’t know how.”

From Alma, this lesson is a powerful one for all of us.  We seem to have a disconnect between our soul and the body we chose to inhabit in for our ‘human experience’ on earth.   Ions ago the ‘real people’ of Australia used the natural senses of intuition and telepathy to communicate with self and others.  Somewhere along the line we gradually lost that ‘knowingness’ as the material and literal world took control of our minds.

So how do we get back that connection – and do we want to?  For body/soul connection a simplistic explanation is through ‘body symbology’ – a language our physical body uses to communicate with us.  I’ll use a personal example. In my 20’s and 30’s I had many major stomach bleeds that put me in intensive care with multiple transfusions.  The medical system could not find a physical reason for the bleeding.  Neither the doctors nor myself thought about the underlying message my body was desperately trying to tell me.  I learned many years later the way the body speaks is through the ‘function’ of the body part being traumatized.  In my case it was saying,   What was it I couldn’t stomach? What was it I couldn’t digest? What was going on for me that was ‘bleeding the life of me’?

When some part of you body is being strongly affected, ask yourself what the function of that body part is and you will ‘know’ the answer if you LISTEN.  Work on the source of the problem, change what you need to change in your life and you will see remarkable differences.
