Sunday Homily: Becoming One With Yourself

Carole Bourdo - "Wolf Song"

Carole Bourdo – “Wolf Song”

Spirit, Soul, Body – Living As One

Part of living and walking your talk, is learning to live as One with the Divine I think it’s hard for us to put it into a box of this life as Spirit in you life. Whatever that is to you, walking your path means bringing your spirit into your daily life and expressing the love and compassion in all things. Sometimes that can get confusing and people struggle with the concept of becoming one with spirit. How do we do this, what aspects of self are we uniting and connecting. How do we live the talk and belief of our spiritual path?

It can be a daunting perspective to grasp for some. And that’s understandable. Many spiritual teachers talk about “Becoming One”, and explain why it’s important. But how many break it down and explain the details of what that means and how it can be accomplished? Today, we’ll look at how Pagan Metaphysics looks at this concept and how we can become one with the self. Along with the Divine in your life.

To start we need to break down the aspects of self. Who are we? How are we connected and intertwined with the Divine in the first place? Living life actually starts with understanding the processes of physical Life and Death. You can read more about the Pagan Metaphysical view from “What Happens When We Die – The Process of Life and Death”  here on Springwolf Reflections. Understanding who we are as Spiritual beings and how we choose our past lifetimes to create a new embodiment helps to visualize the components of self that we’re bringing together. Continue reading

It’s Raining Tears

Healing Through Compassion & Affirmation

Caring and Compassion

And The World Cries

I woke up Monday morning with a heavy heart. It’s raining here in Virginia. It’s dark, gloomy and it simply feels like the whole world is crying.

As an experienced empath (someone who can feel the energy of other living things), I learned decades ago to keep myself shielded from the outside world. When I was younger I would be having a great carefree day, walk past someone who was probably having the worst day in their lives and suddenly I felt like crying. Many untrained empaths have this problem every day and struggle to keep the ‘mood’ of someone else at bay.

You don’t have to be a “gifted” empath for this to happen. We are all psychic to some degree. Some are merely more in tune with those 6th Senses than others. We all have gut feelings, intuition, call it what you want. But humans are part of the animal kingdom, and like those animals, we have natural instincts that keep us safe and help us avoid danger.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Death

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Life is filled with cycles that start and end on a regular basis. Each chapter brings opportunity for growth and a chance to gain a step closer to enlightenment. The future is not something to be feared simply because you’re closing the past. Some of the things behind you, need to be left there for your own good. Shed a tear and move on.


Additional Insight:

There are many chapters in our book of life. Some we write and some we’re merely passing characters in someone else’s play. Those little scene often start quickly, run for a time and end just as quickly. We never, if ever give them a second thought.

But then there are those chapters that we give special meaning to and we hope they run their course and turn out the way we dream. When they do, we enjoy the ride and smile, but we often take them for granted.

When they don’t we set them in a pool of drama hold regrets, sorrows, what if’s, what would have, or what should haves. None of which would have made a difference, but we fool ourselves into thinking they would.

It’s ok to shed a tear or two over what was. No matter what it was, the loss of a family member, a pet, a relationship or a job, it served it’s purpose in your chapter and it was time for those involved to move on. It doesn’t matter what it was, or how important it was in your life. Relationships come and go. Arguments don’t last for ever, unless you allow them to control your life and thoughts.

Each time you say “I won’t let them get away with this”, you are placing that anchor deeper into the ground. You’re making it that much harder to let it go and become free of its control over your success and change for the better. Each time you think of that resentment, that negative phrase or the hateful word, you are giving it more power over you. And no manner of positive thinking will release you into the future until you have freed yourself from that heavy weighty anchor of pain.

It’s time for you to move on. We may not understand the reasons behind the final scene. We may not know “why” until we’re gone and rest in the realm of spirit. But if we dwell on those things now, in this lifetime, at this point the circle, we can cause the wheel to fall backwards and become stuck in the mud.

Cry your tear today. Then pick yourself up, dust yourself off and the mirror and tell yourself “You’re going to be ok”, “You’re strong and you will move forward”, “I AM ready to move into the future and discover the adventure that’s waiting for ME to arrive”, “I can, because I’m one with the Divine Universal Creation”, “I love me and that’s what is most important today”.

Now stop the sorrow, worry and negative talk. Smile and look into the next minute, the next hour and the next day. DO what you need to do to move to the next chapter of your adventure.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Six of Wands – Inverted

Six of Wands: Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Your creative energy can manifest the strangest things, but often times they are exactly what you need at the moment. Your unique humor can cause others to laugh and help them through troubled times, but it also helps you as well. Allow your compassion and frivolity to light the darkness and help others find their way out of the shadows and from under the mushrooms.


Additional Insight:

Your spiritual beliefs and unique humor can often carry you through times of trials and help you to handle change and transition. Share that ability to assist others who do not have the same perspective. Not everyone has that inner strength and many fall into deep depression when troubles occur or a loss is experienced. It doesn’t matter if that change is the loss of a job, relationship, friend, pet or relative. The end of something tangible has equal emotional sorrow as those things that are intangible.

You can aid them in not falling too far into the depths of despair with your tempered humor and compassionate attention. Sometimes looking at the silver lining is equally as important as feeling sorrow and letting it out.

Too much of anything isn’t good for anyone. Holding sadness in can fester and cause more harm than good. Letting sadness rule your life isn’t a positive expression of emotion either. Ensuring that one expresses a balanced approach to their emotions allows one to grieve over things or people lost; and yet still maintain a sense of emotional stability.

It’s never easy losing someone or something that was important to you. But the only real constant in life is that things change. Fight that change and you’ll lose the battle and miss the chance to find love or fulfillment in the future. Accept that things change for a reason and celebrate what they brought to you in your life and you can focus on the good things in life and be open to new lessons and experiences it has to offer you.

Everyone needs a little encouragement, a little face to face confirmation to see a smile or to know someone else let’s them know “It really will be ok”.  Sometimes a person simply wants someone to listen. A face to face moment of communication, where compassion can be seen. That smile or the look of compassionate eyes can go a long way to helping them make it through yet another issue. It’s amazing how much a kind word or simple smile can lift someone out of their fear and hopelessness.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Death

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

It’s the end of the chapter and time to give way to new adventures, new people, and new ways of thinking. You can spend your time searching for what you lost; or you can spend it looking forward for what you need. Sometimes the things we have lost are things we didn’t need in our lives. And what we have to look forward to is better what we really wanted in the first place.


Additional Insight:

Don’t spend your time in the darkness, dwelling over what you lost. You can waste a lot of time and energy over what you thought you wanted. Don’t dig a deeper hole that will be harder to get out of in the end.

Sometimes the Divine Universe will force us out of a situation because we’re too stubborn to see that it’s time to move on. There’s something better waiting for us over the next hill. But we have to take the path to get there.

Stand on the bones of the past to get a better view above the darkness below. Take what you’ve learned and prepare for the future with greater awareness of what you “need” vs. what you “think” you want. Put your faith in the higher Divine Consciousness of self and the greater Divine Spirit in your life.

Be open to new ideas and new people who bring new information. Participate in new situations that bring new experiences. Take an active role in your life and help create the opportunities for what you really need. You’ll be glad you did. And you’ll realize….you really do deserve better and you’re open to receiving it.
