What if Everything is Meant to Serve Us?

 

What if everything is meant to serve us?
What if even in the disorder, there is order?
How can we truly know if something is bad?
What if it leads to something rad?

Maybe it’s all part of the process.
On the way to something far greater.
How can we think for a second we know it all and what will ultimately serve us?

If we had it our way we’d avoid pain and suffering at all costs.
And how much good would that do us?
Never learning, growing, overcoming and challenging ourselves.
Never experiencing the depths of our being, our love, our joy, our light, radiance, courage and strength. We’d be bored and definitely not as evolved.

So how can we know what is best for us, when we don’t even know how all this works?
All this being the Universe.
Perhaps it’s time to trust the very thing that put us here on this earth.
Suddenly one day we were here and we don’t even know how that happened besides the fact that our parents had sex.

Call it what you will my friends (Source Energy, Higher Power, God, Infinite Intelligence…) but there’s “Something” and it’s the one thing that connects us all. It’s you, it’s me, it’s we, all of creation and infinity. Seriously, the Universe is infinite…no end, no beginning, limitless.

Can you even wrap your head around this?

Therefore, just because society sets certain standards and says it needs to be a certain way, you need to be a certain way. You don’t. You have a choice. You get to choose. You get to decide, create, express, test, try on, explore, see, learn, grow, experiment with what is best for you. And what is best for you right now won’t always be.
And that’s a good thing, great in fact because you are always evolving.

You get to create whatever it is you want to create in this life because just like the Universe, you too are limitless. It’s simply about owning it and believing it with all your heart.

I promise you if you want to do a world of good, the world will join you.

But first and foremost you need to start with you. Know thyself first and then. Because we cannot give what we do not have and even that is constantly unfolding.

Lesson Here: Be you. Be love. Be limitless and trust the process.

Namaste & Bon Voyage,

Lise

Feel How Lovely

Sink deep into love, deep into life
Feel the light
Absorb the beauty, the harmony
And feel how lovely

How lovely it is to be alive
How lovely it is to thrive
And even cry

It serves us to reflect upon
To look beyond
What the eyes cannot see
And contemplate the mystery

Is it all by chance
Or a divine dance?

There’s so much order and grandeur
It’s hard not to imagine the latter

Bon Voyage,

Lise

Coming Home

What does it feel like?
How do you know?

It’s warm, cozy, familiar
And yet, a little peculiar
Sometimes you feel it in a touch
Or an all encompassing rush

It’s hard to describe
Maybe it’s the whole reason we are alive
So we may come to know our true selves
Beyond our physical cells

As we start to come into our own
We realise we were never alone
And that to me is indicative of coming home

Bon Voyage,

Lise

Deeply Rooted in Love

screen-shot-2016-12-13-at-12-00-00

I am deeply rooted in love
How could I not be?
Have you seen all the beauty that surrounds me?

Stunning Mother Nature
The sun, the moon, ocean and trees
The birds, the bees, plants, rivers and streams

I am beyond pleased to know the depth of this beauty
And the magic of this time space reality

The wholeness, the fullness,
Unity and harmony
And most certainly,
Love

I am and we are all,
Deeply rooted in love
It’s what we are made of

Bon Voyage,

Lise

Shedding Light on Jealousy and Envy

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-06-10-33

The other day I wrote down these words; I wish to see all parts of me and embrace them lovingly.

And boom!, the very next day jealousy and envy decided to show up. Instead of pushing against, resisting or trying to change what I was feeling, I let it sit there for a bit and decided to investigate.

Jealously and envy, what do you intend? Are you a foe or are you a friend?

By asking these two simple questions, I immediately felt some space open up between me and my emotions. The emotions no longer consumed me, instead I was curious as to what I would find and got some of my power back in the meantime.

I realized that these feelings could only arise when I was stuck in my mind, judging and comparing. Old patterns of comparison and unworthiness were activated and my attention was no longer in the present moment.

Good to know.

Then I started thinking, what if feeling shitty wasn’t such a bad thing? What if its purpose is to warn us, to protect us and to guide us back towards love? If we didn’t feel bad than how else would we know we’d fallen into destructive thoughts or behavior. I believe these so called negative emotions are here to help us, to alert us. “MAYDAY, MAYDAY!! Not this way, turn back towards love, Love.”

It’s amazing how I automatically assumed jealousy and envy were bad and were trying to hurt me, when all along they were trying to guide me back towards my worthiness, my wholeness and most of all love.

Big Lesson Here:

To compete and to compare is such a part of our conditioning we often don’t notice we’re doing it and wonder why we’re so miserable.
We are literally all different flowers with our own scents and characteristics, each one uniquely beautiful and magnificent. Yet, beneath it all, we are all the same.
So less comparing, more loving. Appreciating each and everyone for who they are and the gifts they bring.
There’s no need to compete when we understand that we are ALL whole, full and complete.
Now let us all breathe a big sigh of relief. (Aaaaaaah…)

Bon Voyage,

Notes to a Dear Friend

screen-shot-2016-11-20-at-22-11-55

Beautiful Soul Sister,

Our default is to operate from the head because that’s all we are taught. It’s up to each of us to make the journey from the head to the heart and when we do, that’s when we begin to understand what our existence is all about.

It’s a personal journey, one of our own soul. You do know best, you always do. Know that. Trust that.

We are taught to always look outside ourselves for answers, approval and guidance. But once we begin to look within instead, that’s when we tap into our true power and grace. If only people knew how magnificent they are, instead of buying into the idea that they lack something, we’d have a world filled with love, joy and kindness.

Recently I heard the only true measure of success is to love yourself unconditionally (Pause. Wow. Breathe that one in…)
and I couldn’t agree more. It starts from within. Our self-talk especially. We need to forgive ourselves, be gentle, loving, kind, caring and compassionate towards ourselves. In other words, we need to accept ourselves and eventually that will naturally turn into love, respect and honour towards ourselves and others.

Our inner dialogue is vital to our vitality. That I know for sure.
As Dr. Wayne Dyer said, “Change your thoughts, change your life”. Because ALL transformation begins within.

Therefore, less doing more being. You are already whole, complete, perfect just as you are. Rest in that. Know that. Let it sink deeply into your heart. Nothing more to prove, to improve, to do or be. Just complete acceptance of oneself. There in lies the magic, the power, the beauty. No longer needing anyone else to accept you because you accept you. Now that’s freedom!

Lesson Here: Only you can lovingly set yourself free.  Just be love.

Bon Voyage,

Lise

Contemplative State of Mind

screen-shot-2016-10-27-at-19-38-43

Things I have been contemplating lately are:

The very essence of nature is change. Of course it is, it’s so obvious now. But funny how in our human forms we are sometimes so resistant to change when in fact we are changing every moment of every day and so is everything around us.

Life is now. All that matters is right now. Now is the leading edge of creation.

Trust. So much trust, in myself, in life and in others.

Love is all around us and is us. We are made by love, in love, with love.

WE are worthy and we ALL matter a lot. As we expand so does the Universe.

Bon Voyage,

Lise

Nudging You In

Be Still.
Be Still.

It’s so over
What is old
has now been shed
Done, gone, dead

I’ve been freed
from mental entanglements
No longer serving
a poisonous dwelling

Freed, vivified
and very much alive

I encourage all
to go on and shed
whatever is dead

Free form
do not conform
Make peace inside
liberate your mind

Experience the unconditional love
the love you are made of

I encourage you
I urge you
I nudge you
go in
Take a good, deep listen
to your heart’s infinite wisdom

Bon Voyage,

Lise

You Can Have it All

Love Abounds
Love Abounds

If the soul is the only part of us that is eternal, why wouldn’t we make it our highest priority?

Perhaps our soul purpose is exactly that, our soul.

Inner peace, love, joy, kindness and contentment are what our soul seeks. When you have that, you have it all.

True fulfilment is found in no thing. When we come to understand this, life takes on a whole new meaning and love abounds.

Bon Voyage,

Lise
