The Miracle of Giving with Pure Intent

I realized recently the sheer power of GRATITUDE.  How it multiplies every gift.  Gratitude was the MIRACLE that fed 5000 with only 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread.   Jesus understood that abundance is free-flowing and never-ending.  It is Gratitude and Unconditional Love that opens the flood gates.

Can you imagine the abundance we can create in this world if every Holiday gift was given in the same LIGHT (or energy) as Jesus gave?

We’ve been taught that GIVING IS RECEIVING and this is true.  We always receive “the energy” of  what we extend.

Some “seem” to give very abundantly and end up financially and emotionally broke after the holidays.

How does this joyous, beautiful time turn into anything but?  Could it be the energy of intent in the giving did not match the Highest Vibrations of Love, Gratitude and Abundance?

The only Pure intent is Unconditional Love (love without condition or any other intention). Our Truest Desire is to Love and Be Loved this way – no matter what we may be showing the world.  Marianne Williamson put it this way,

“Everything that is NOT Love is a CRY for Love.”

This Holiday season ask yourself:

“What is my intent in giving this gift?”

“Does it resonsate with my Truest Desire?”

“Does it resonate with Pure Intent?”.

It may sound silly at first, but if you are very honest with yourself you might be surprised at some of the answers that flow in…..

Your first response to these answers may be to judge yourself when you realize your intent is not pure – Resist this urge.  You just received a Gift that you can now multiple. 

This energy of Pure intent  is “felt” at the heart center – Not with the mind.

Truth resides in the heart

A gift given from the heart resonates with the Truth at the heart of everyone and “multiplies”.   This is what the world truly needs – For Truth to shine bright.  So give this season in the energy that multiples.

Here are some examples of intent you may ask yourself.  Am I giving this….

  1. To increase business – cash flow?
  2. To bring a smile to someone?
  3. To bring to myself a smile?
  4. Because that person may give me a gift?
  5. To help me feel better about myself?
  6. To make an impression?
  7. To fill a physical need someone may have?
  8. To fill a void in my life?
  9. To extend sheer Joy?
  10. To bring laughter?
  11. Because it is expected of me?
  12. Fill in the blank……

May your Holiday be blessed with Unconditional Love & Abundance!

 

 

Falling In Love..

Are you loving yourself with your thoughts and actions?  As you fall more and more in love with yourself, you are less and less tolerant of causing harm to yourself, just as you would be intolerant of ANY harm to a “loved one”.  Love does not judge or harm.

Speaking of Love – Love yourself with this!

Alkalizing Lemon- Lime Mousse Parfait                                      Serves 4-6

¼ cup fresh squeezed lime juice

¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 large ripe avocado

¼ cup honey or to taste (or powdered stevia for non-sugar version)*

dash sea salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract or flavoring

1 cup homemade coconut whipped cream*

1 cup fresh blueberries or blackberries

Garnish with mint leaves, lime or lemon wheels or just a little zest

In standard food processor pulse avocado a few times to cream, then blend in lime and lemon juices, honey, vanilla and salt until very smooth and creamy.  Add 1/2 cup whipped cream and pulse a few times just until incorporated.  This can all be done with an electric mixer as well, just cream the avocado first and fold in cream last.  Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.

When ready to serve, layer berries, mousse, and whipped cream anyway you want into pretty parfait glasses and garnish.

This is an amazing, taste bud tantalizing experience!  The best part – It is actually helps to balance the body’s pH!

Homemade Coconut Whipped Cream                                                      Serves 4 – 6

1 can coconut cream, chilled (Savoy is one brand)

2 teaspoon honey (or 1-2 teaspoon powdered stevia for a “no sugar” version)

1 teaspoon vanilla

½ teaspoon lemon zest

Large chilled stainless bowl

Open coconut cream and scoop into your cold stainless bowl.  Add honey, vanilla and zest. With a hand held mixer or stand mixer, whip the cream until light and fluffy.  Keep cold until ready to serve.

*Truwhip is a packaged coconut whipped cream (like cool whip).  It can be found in the freezer section of your whole foods store – Really delicious, but does contain a little sugar.

Enjoy!  Chef Gail

The Age of Eve Redefined…

Very Interesting coincidence….I call this “synergy”. This article is confirming a message very specifically that I received during a meditation practice a few months ago – A clear signal the time is right to write it down, share it – give it life.

I had 3 ribs that kept dislocating and causing me a lot of pain.  This debilitating pain was interrupting my life and interfering with my joy.  It finally dawned on me it was bringing an important message.  Pain is a powerful messenger.   With that revelation, the intention for mediation that day was to hear the message.

I believe there is a purpose for everything and I sensed it had something to do with what happened to me long ago (I had no idea how long ago…)

I was attacked about 25 years ago by a couple of men with the intention of rape and I suffered several broken ribs. Thank God I escaped, but I did not go unscathed.  I’ve lived with a great fear of finding myself in that situation again.  A parking garage or a peaceful, quiet street could evoke terror, even if I was with someone.  It was an irrational fear that induced panic attacks. Over the last few years I thought I had released this fear. The rib was a reminder of something I had not released from my subconscious and it was presenting again; giving me another opportunity to let it go.

The message revealed was this – Suppression of women and the sense of lack and unworthiness it has created in us has its root in Genesis. What happened to me is a result of a belief system that considers women “less than” men.  The woman in the Old Testament is portrayed as an “afterthought” of God. According to scripture,  God realized after creating Adam, it was not good for man to be alone and created Eve from the rib of the man. So not only was Eve a second thought, she was not given her own identity.

Eve then coerced Adam to eat from the apple; Eve’s coercion of Adam caused the corruption of man, “the original sin” and it was downhill from there for women. I guess man would be forever living in Nirvana if not for Eve or maybe man would be extinct.  Or, did God have another idea of how creation would procreate before he had the “Ah Ha” moment that changed his mind – I thought that was a woman’s prerogative?  This is how my mind works…he he.

Based on what I was taught and decided was true in my formative years, subconsciously I’ve been conditioned to be submissive to man and to believe I deserve to be punished.  And, why not?  Women are trouble.

As have many women, I’ve gone through most of my adult life making sure life is punishing me; that somehow I did something to deserve being punished.   This embedded belief system has ruled the collective woman consciousness.   I can look back now on life and see how my perceptions of where women stood in the scheme of things influenced how I viewed events.  One event in particular comes to mind.  Another blog.

The written interpretation of Genesis and other similar religious scripture has given man free license to suppress women throughout the history of religion. This suppression at times has been very subtle and extreme as we are seeing now in some religions and fundamentalist aspects of religions.  I can see how this belief that women are “not created equal” has been perpetuated by a blind acceptance of what is deemed truth by those in authority.

Questioning religious teaching is considered blasphemy and still punishable by death in some countries.  The fear of death, hell and damnation has controlled people for ions. Questioning truth has always been a threat to those who seek control.  Until recently, it has proved dangerous for women to question authority or reveal her full power.

The suppression of women, like all events have served a purpose unto Heaven (to the Higher Plan).  Current events and changing times suggest that this purpose has been realized.  People are questioning old beliefs.  We are listening with our hearts for the vibration of Truth that resonates with Unconditional Love.

People are realizing their connection with all of Creation as our ability to be connected through technology increases.  Woman in force are rediscovering their importance; their irreplaceable worth to the world as they see themselves mirrored worldwide.  The female in all of creation is the very womb that births creation.  Women were not always suppressed.  At one time we were respected, revered and honored and still are in some cultures.  Mother lion is roaring now as she is rediscovering her power, worth and proper place.

Nothing ever changes until we change our minds – It’s everyone’s prerogative. All events are uncovering us; revealing our true God-like nature. As individuations of our Creator, we are created in the very image.  As we are revealed we become an ever clearer conduit for God’s Pure Unconditional Love to flow through us and from us.

All religions speak of this Truth.  Ernest Holmes put it this way, “Evolution is the drawing out of God within us”.  The Christian bible says this, “No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us”..1 John 4:12.

The tough events in our lives (the hard knocks) are asking us to open the door to the God within.  The harder the knock the bigger the opening.  I’m sure you’ve heard, “Your worst enemy is your greatest teacher”, or how the hardest hardship ended up being the biggest blessing.

This life event that resulted in the broken ribs was giving me an opportunity to release a belief system that was no longer serving me, my purpose or the collective woman.  It had been pointed out again and again, but I wasn’t getting it, so the knock got harder. Tough as it was, the broken ribs provided the catalyst that broke me free from the “ages” old belief  that as a woman, I was “less than” and therefore, loved less, “worth” less.

It still took 25 more years to swing the door wide open!  I was only able to release this belief from my subconscious by quieting my mind (something I couldn’t do in my younger years) so I could hear the voice of God.  I am so grateful for the event that shook me loose and THAT is the miracle – A change in perception that truly sets me free!  By the way, no more rib pain since the day the message was revealed – hallelujeh!

The collective woman is being released as each woman frees herself from the bondage of this long held perception of inequality.  I am now FREE thank Goodness to a loving God that talks to me personally as I allow.  I pray for the release and freedom of all women.  May the collective woman take her proper place in the world alongside her brother and with her nurturing, loving heart help move the world forward into Nirvana.
