"A belief is only a thought you continue to think. A belief is nothing more than a chronic pattern of thought, and you have the ability -if you try even a little bit- to begin a new pattern, to tell a new story, to achieve a different vibration, to change your point of attraction."
- Esther Hicks, best-selling author and speaker."
YOU ARE ENOUGH! ACT ACCORDINGLY!
Hear me: you are held, you are nurtured, you are guided, you are taken care of, you are Loved, you are ENOUGH.
The true essence of our Uni-verse is Love. It’s the foundation, the baseline of where we come from. We forget that because the world is filled with many people who have forgotten or never learned their true nature, but it doesn’t deny what’s true.
I remember in my couch surfing days and right before, I began to see TDL as an experiment in Faith. I had all these fears that “I would end up alone, no one would like me, I’m not enough, no one would see value in me, I would end up homeless and alone and that nothing would work out.” There were plenty of other fears, too. But these were some of the main ones.
And as I became more aware and more conscious of these fears, there was a part of me that thought, “I wonder if those things will actually happen? Why don’t we find out?” And I kind of dared myself to see what would happen. Deep down I know that all the things I wrote at the beginning of this blog were true, but my ego and my fear needed to be proved wrong. So I leaped.
There were plenty of times when things didn’t go the way that “I” wanted them to. There were plenty of times where I was terrified beyond anything I had experienced before. There were times when I just wanted to give up and to quit. There were many times when I had regretted taking a risk and wish I could go back to the “safe” road of previous corporate life in the music business. There were times when I didn’t know where money for rent was going to come from. There were times when I was so confused and didn’t know what to do.
But the thing I kept doing every day was writing, emailing, tweeting, learning and trying my best to add value to other people’s lives.
People ask me how I started to write. One day in 2008 I couldn’t find a quote, so I just wrote a sentence. And then the next day another sentence, and then another. And now I write blogs that are way too long (lol).
But it started small. And each step is guided. I haven’t had a plan for how it’s going to work. All I’ve done is just show up, do the work and try to help people in a non-dogmatic and loving way.
Which brings me to the inspiration of this blog today. The further I go down the Rabbit Hole of Faith, the more and more I see that the spiritual and Uni-versal teachings and principles are TRUE.
One of the most important ones that I have come to nestle up with has been the idea of perfect Divine Timing. We pray for things to happen when we want them to, but that’s not how it works. What’s in the best interest of our heart and our mission WILL happen, but not in our time frame.
The Uni-verse has a way of taking away everything in our lives that we believe will sustain us that actually doesn’t. I never came closer to my true Self, to my Soul, as I did when I was couch surfing. That was my wake up call.
The Uni-verse has shaken us to awaken us.
When we get nestled into the idea that we are taken care of, we are enough, we are Loved and that The Uni-verse knows our hearts better than we do, we can let go of the outcome and allow ourselves to be pulled by Grace.
There is a natural ebb and flow to the process of life that is kind, benevolent and sometimes frustrating, but it happens nonetheless.
This is what it means to live by faith and not by sight. When we are so nestled into the arms of the Divine, we allow ourselves to be carried one moment at a time. When we know we are enough, when we know we are in the perfect place right now, when we seek to add value instead of extract value, when we detach from the outcome, but still try our best, when we allow what wants to emerge to emerge - we step into a kind of flow that cannot be thought out by mankind.
Our plans mean little in the eyes of the Divine. What matters is flexibility, openness, a desire to serve and a deep and true understanding that even though we have no idea how it’s going to go, that we are Loved through the process and no matter how it ends up, it will be for our best interest.
Not the best interest of our ego, no, but the best interest of our heart (which is always WAY cooler, way more FUN and totally THRILLING). The path of the heart is a journey into the unknown and when we meet that journey with bold faith, a service-based mindset and a desire to trust The Uni-verse moment to moment, we REALLY start to live a purpose and heart-based life.
My great wish is that we can remember our Source and then act accordingly. When we can stop clinging, stop competing, stop hating and start adding value and seeing that below the surface of appearance, there is one Heart, one Love and one Purpose that is trying to emerge through us all in varied forms: to Love and be Loved.
Our work is to become aware of and take down the blocks within us so that we transform our belief in separation and begin to feel a bond and connection with each person and circumstance we meet.
So if you knew you were Loved, cared for, guided and the rest, what would you do? And when would NOW be a good time to do it?

One of the great gifts of being human is that we have free will.
But our free will boils down to a very simple choice: we can choose to connect to Love or not.
Love is where we came from. Love is who we are and Love in all its various forms is our destiny. Like a seed, we have a full potential within us; when we plant ourselves in the soil of Love and water our dreams and life with Faith, we begin to step into and realize that potential.
And just like the seed, we express in perfect time - not all at once, but over time.
One of my intentions in life is to be so nestled into the arms of The Uni-verse that I am fully relaxed and present in every moment. When I lived my life from a place of ego and needing significance in order to feel worthy, I would chase and chase and chase for very little reward.
Finally after a whole lotta chasing and not very much reward + a very unhealthy body, I just gave it up. And I asked The Uni-verse to take over and show me who I am, who I’m not and how to step into the abundance and Love I so eagerly desired.
That prayer and request sounds nice, but it’s a humbling process that usually means your world is going to flip upside down before it starts to really rock.
When we lean on Love and on The Uni-verse for guidance and truly ask for real Faith to live by Faith and not by sight, the first thing that has to happen is that all the things, situations, people, etc. in our lives who we’ve given our power away to have to be challenged and reframed.
If your goal is to trust The Uni-verse, to live Its will for your life and to be used up by Love so at the end of your life you have FULLY expressed and given every last DROP of your purpose, then everything that has your power that is NOT in alignment with that Path must be challenged and uprooted. There is no other way.
So if you want to live your purpose with Faith, everything that is not your purpose will begin to shift away and leave your life - that is, unless you resist, and then life gets stagnant.
My aim, my goal is to stay fixed on the experiences I want to desire (feeling inspired, joyful, happy, scared to step out of my comfort zone, etc.) and detach from the physical form of how they show up.
When we detach from the form, we give The Uni-verse room to work to create the EXPERIENCES we truly desire.
Living your purpose and being nestled in the arms of The Uni-verse doesn’t mean that you are going to live a boring life. It means you will get to a point where you are filled up, happy and feeling alive most of the time. But it takes constant risk, constant tenacity and the ability to step outside of your comfort zone daily and allow your ego to be humbled in the process.
Where we are going as a human race is more connected to each other. So the more you can tell on yourself, the more honest you can be and the more that you can see the Divine in everyone you meet, the greater amount of success and fulfillment you will have.
When we use our free will to connect to the energy of Love and allow The Uni-verse to work through it, the form of our life will begin to change. It’s scary at first, but what’s scariest of all is getting to the end of our life with fear and regret.
If you choose to connect to Love, you will be challenged. You will be asked to face your fears. You will be asked to be humbled. And then you will be lifted by the wings of angels who are ready to help you fly because you take yourself lightly.
This is the promise of Love.
