I am living in HEAVEN

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

I looked forward to attending the newly formed gathering of inter- generational women to share our journeys and support one another. At the last minute, I was unable to attend. I thought about the discussion questions we were asked to think about and how I would answer them. “What is your passion and purpose? What do you need to do to realize your dreams? What can you give to others?”

If you have been on the spiritual path for any length of time, you have probably thought about what your passion and purpose is. You still may not know what your passion and purpose is. As I prayed about what my passion and purpose is, I immediately flashed back to a vivid dream that I had years ago when I was paralyzed with fear (7 years) while I was writing my book. When I finally identified that it was fear that kept me stuck from living my dreams, I was able to move forward and finish my book. If I had not come out of denial and worked through my fear, I would not be living on Maui and getting married to a wonderful man. Here is the dream:

“I was climbing up a long staircase that led to heaven. As I arrived at the top of the staircase, I saw a star in the sky and reached out for it. I then became the STAR. A star shines in the dark night to light up the sky. A star led the wise men to the stable where Jesus was born.

After processing this dream many years ago, I realized that my purpose and passion was born and it is “I am a STAR that shines brightly to lead others to the God within.” This truly is my joy and passion.

As I prayed about it today, this is what Holy Spirit said: “Say YES to BE the light and love that I call you to BE today. The world is awakening to the truth that we are all ONE and not separate from God. You never left, God never left you. You are not alone. It is only a dream. You know the truth and will share it with those I send to you. Do not be afraid of your light for it is my light shining through you. There is much darkness in the world that is now coming into the light. Although it looks like things in the world are deteriorating and people are very anxious and confused, it is my plan being played out. There is no need to be afraid because this has been planned by me and is the beginning of a great awakening.”

I have seen first- hand the darkness in people this week and it has been sickening. It is hard to believe the lies, deceit, control, greed and lack of love that I have witnessed in others. Without knowing the light and love of God within, we are doomed to living in the prison of hell which leads to suicide and addictions. The pain and suffering is too much for people to bear.

Heaven is not a place; it is a state of mind. We either live in hell or live in heaven. The choice is ours. We are invited to live heaven on earth. Without the light of God within, there is darkness and despair. We who are awakened and awakening are called to be that light and use our gifts in the service of God. We need one another more than ever to walk this journey.

Are you ready to say YES to God to be instruments of light in the world? Are you ready to believe in yourself and let go of not feeling good enough or smart enough? Are you ready to live your purpose and passion? You have been given gifts to bring to the world and now is the time to say YES and to believe in yourself. The world needs your light.

I have a plaque on my desk that reads:


“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on the stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your father in heaven.” Matthew 5 14-16

If you don’t know what your passion or purpose is, I can help you find it. If you living in darkness and want help in your awakening, I can help you. If not now, when? Don’t let fear rob you of living your life and your dreams You are the light of the world and the world needs your gifts NOW.

Here is a poem I received from my friend, Kati, right before I was about to send this out. We are all called to BE THE LIGHT and let our light shine.

Yet ultimately we are alone, making our way home by the candle of the heart. Many times our light will go out. But another light, one held by a stranger or a friend, a book or a song, a blackbird or a wildflower, comes close enough so we can see our path by its light. And in time we realize that the light we have borrowed was always our own” Joan Borysenko
