Will you stand in your spiritual power today? Spiritual power does not mean power over others, which is not really power at all. Spiritual power begins with you recognizing and embracing just what a luminous and powerful being you actually are. When you do, you will never again fall prey to the false belief that there is something outside of you that holds any power over you. The Spirit of Life has poured the entirety of itself into you. It has entrusted you with all of its limitless capacities, its sacred qualities and creative faculties. Now all the forces of Heaven are waiting to see what you will do with what has been given to you. So today, let go of acting as if you didn’t know who you are. Decide to take a stand for the sacred qualities of love, peace, creativity, well-being, beauty, and harmonizing prosperity. As you let the I AM Presence within you shine, it will guide you to exactly where you need to go in order for you to become the embodiment of your highest potential.
Be aware that who you are has nothing to do with externals. Who you are has nothing to do with circumstances or conditions. And it has nothing to do with what may or may not have happened in the past. Who you are transcends all of that. And as you consciously embrace your True Identity as a limitless being made in the spiritual image and likeness of the Ineffable, you are in that moment reclaiming your spiritual authority. You are remembering that life is always lived from the inside out, and never from the outside in. So give yourself permission today to invest some time into communing with your Deepest Most Authentic Self. Feel into those sacred qualities that are within you, and then let the still small voice guide you into a greater experience of the magnificence that is you.
Life in all its wonder and glory is continuously evolving towards greater and greater expressions of itself. We can see this evolutionary process at work everywhere in nature. Ultimately the purpose of Life in its physical form is to give expression to what Browning called the “inner splendor,” that Divine pattern of perfection which is the highest and best, infinite potential fully realized and fully expressed. While all of nature gravitates in this direction, you and I have this thing called free will. And this means we always have a choice. We must make a conscious choice to evolve, we must consciously choose to move in the direction of our highest potential. We do this by letting go of any lesser perceptions, by releasing any unconscious agreements with mediocrity that we may have made. And instead we simply know that All-That-Is is standing by to support us, to guide us and inspire us to become more fully ourselves. So today, surrender to the Divine pattern of perfection for your life. Hold the intention that you are going to set free all of your gifts and talents, and then let your Silent Partner show you the way.
At first it might seem counter-intuitive to approach Life with the awareness that everything in your seeming external world is merely a reflection of a corresponding state of being that is within you. But the truth is there are no exceptions to this. The outer is a perfect reflection of the inner just as a mirror will always give you a perfect reflection of your physical likeness. All change must first be created on the inside before it can be experienced on the outside. As you engage in your daily spiritual practice of meditation, affirmative prayer, tuning into the highest vision for your life—as you do this every single day, regardless of whether or not you feel like it, you will experience a profound shift in your perception. No longer will this seem counter-intuitive, it will seem quite natural. The speed at which your thoughts and beliefs manifest quickens, because trained thought is considerably more powerful than untrained thought. You begin to see more and more correlations between what it is you have been thinking about and what shows up in your world. Truthfully, prepare to be shocked and amazed! Soon all you can do is to simply say, “Thank you, Universe! Thank you, God! Thank you, Life! I am exceedingly abundantly blessed!” In fact, begin to say this right now! Start there, and let the rest unfold.
Infinite overflowing good is constantly seeking to burst forth into expression. This is the simple truth of things. Granted, it is difficult sometimes to see this because we live in a world in which many of us entertain ideas about reality that deny the fundamental goodness of Life. And because we are creative beings we tend to manifest what we believe to be true. When what we believe is out of alignment with Ultimate Reality—which beliefs in lack, scarcity or limitation most certainly are—there will invariably be some form of suffering involved. Your task, as a spiritually mature and awakened individual, is to see beyond the maze of miscreations, and to simply know the truth: God is good! Life is good! Right now good is seeking to express and reveal itself in you, through you, and as you. Yet it requires you to be receptive to it. It requires your permission. So will you give it permission today? Why not allow God to show up as your very life, and watch what happens.
What mental attitude are you bringing into the space of your life? Are you approaching life from the perspective that you have to try and make something happen? Possibly overcome odds or defeat some kind of “enemy” whilst trying to acquire your good from something or someone external? Or are you coming from the awareness that everything you could ever want, hope for, or desire has already been given to you? Are you living in the knowingness that Life already imparted you with all of Its gifts even before time began, and It is simply awaiting your conscious recognition of this truth? Whatever perspective you bring into the space of your life is what will be reflected back to you in the form of your experience. You are a creative being infinitely more powerful than you may have been conditioned to believe. So I invite you to be mindful today of what you bring into the space of your life. Choose to step into your spiritual authority, and determine that you are going to shine fully as the magnificent being that you are.
