Blessings!

I will be using the hashtag #100daysofwisdom, the title of my forthcoming book (Summer 2013), to track my wisdom journey in the final 100 days of 2012 [See how this Project has evolved in 2013]. My  intention is to get still, get clear and to be more mindful of the wisdom constantly being whispered by Spirit to lead me further along my life path and guide me to be more aligned with my divine purpose.

My prayer is that my journey “out loud” will help you to find your own way along your divinely inspired path as well. When we recognize, honor and listen to the wisdom in the whisper, we tap into the divine energy within and all around, access the creative power that ignites divine action and manifest an inspired, wholehearted life.

Please share your thoughts, reflections and comments. Join me and let’s journey together!

Today’s reflection

“In order to be who you are you must be willing to let go of everything you think you are.”

Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul

[Watch Michael Singer on OWN’s Super Soul Sunday with Oprah Winfrey as they discuss Singer’s journey to inner peace and how we too can all find spiritual freedom.]

Wisdom Lesson #4: I am responsible for the energy I bring.

On Super Soul Sunday (OWN) this morning Oprah Winfrey’s Soul Series interview of Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor re-aired. During the interview she described her stroke experience and the profound awareness she learned in the process.The story is beautifully chronicled in her book A Stroke of Insight.

Essentially she had a massive hemorrhage in the left hemisphere of her brain, the side that controls thought, learning, rote functions and all of the egoic thoughts with which we ordinarily identify. What remained was the intuitive, emotional, sensory “big picture” functioning of the right hemisphere of her brain. [more info on how the brain works]

She was aware that she was alive and connected; both a part of and wholly made of a loving, cooperative system of organisms working together for her good, her peace, her existence.

In fact, she was reborn! She had to re-learn a “self” because the “37-year old doctor and daughter self” she was “pre-stroke” had passed away in a mere 4-hour time span and no longer existed. Why and how? As a result of the stroke she lost her emotional baggage, memories of hurts, slights, pains, history, education and her “story” of who she was seen through the lens of a lifetime of events and relationships. She got a fresh start; she was indeed reborn again. Continue reading
