God’s plan was bigger & better

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

Happy New Year. My prayer for 2023 is that we all be open to receive more love, peace, health, joy and happiness into our lives. It is our birthright and what Spirit wants for us. Are you open and ready to receive and let go of what no longer serves you?

I can’t believe that I have been living on Maui for 11 years this January. It is my intention to keep my vibration high and live in love and gratitude every day. I asked my son, Tim, many years ago when I moved to Maui, “How did I get here?” He said, “Mom, as long as I can remember you said you were going to live on the water.”

I never dreamed that I would be living in a beautiful home overlooking the ocean with a man that loves me deeply and I love him with all my heart.

Spirit had a bigger vision and plan for my life than I could have ever imagined. I just kept stepping out in faith, (even when I felt afraid) saying “yes” and following my heart. God’s plans are not our plans. They’re always BETTER, always BIGGER and always LONG-LASTING.

To prepare for the new year, I asked myself another question. “How did I get to this place of PEACE and contentment deep in my heart and to experience Christ’s presence within and without?” Peace is the ego’s greatest enemy and wants us to believe we are separate and alone. It wants us to compare, compete, and control.

Here is WHAT I did to experience the peace that passes all understanding:

My dad’s favorite saying was, FIND YOURSELF. I’m not sure he knew what it meant, but I REMEMBERED it for years. I’ve added KNOW YOURSELF & BE YOURSELF.

The search to FIND MYSELF is OVER. I found myself and I’m HOME. I’m home to myself and home to the Spirit within. We are walking each other home to the truth of who we are. We are LOVE. We are LIGHT. We are ONE. We are His PRESENCE.

I’m no longer looking “outside” of myself for love, peace, recognition, and happiness because everything I need is inside of me.

I found this quote this week which resonated deeply within me and touched my heart.

“The more we heal, the smaller our inner circle becomes. It’s not because we don’t want connection or don’t want to love. It’s because we have a transformed relationship with ourselves. We crave time alone and have a heightened awareness of who will further our healing and who will not.”

I asked myself, “What does a transformed relationship with myself mean?”

Spirit said, “It means the truth. You are never alone. You are enough. You are LOVE. You are LIGHT. You are ONE with God and your brother. Everything is in Divine order and planned. Nothing outside of yourself (fame, wealth, recognition, spouse, home) will bring you the peace you are seeking within.

It has taken me 76 years to get to the place of TRUTH and PEACE and not to be controlled by the ego’s lies and illusions. It doesn’t mean that I’m not aware of the problems in the world, it is that I’m detached to what I can’t control.

Love is the most powerful energy in the world. Love is my super power. Love is all there is. It is blissful, it is heaven, and it is REAL. Will you join me and make 2023 the best year ever?
