Do You Know Your Ancestry?

Life is in the air! 
That’s means love is in the air, too. 
You can’t have one without the other. 
The Universe is in the business of creating, and the whole business of creation comes from the energy of love.
Look at your existence. Where do you think you came from? You didn’t just spring from your mother’s loins. Yes, biologically, you were created when egg and sperm met and merged. But your existence is more than a biological event. Much, much more.

Let’s go through an interesting exercise. A part of you came from your mother, and a part of you came from your father. This means you existed in both of your parents before you were physically born. You existed in a different energy form in two different people.

Let’s take this a step further. Before you were born and before your parents were born, you and your parents existed in your parents’ parents (your grandparents to you).

Going further, before you were born, before your parents were born and before your grandparents were born, all of you existed inside your great-grandparents. See where this is going? And if you do the math, you have two parents, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, sixteen great-great grandparents, thirty-two great-great-great grandparents, sixty-four great-great-great-great grandparents, and so on. That’s a lot of great-greats in your family tree, isn’t it?

Now, let this blow your mind. Consider all of your (ready?) great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great (yes, that’s 25 “greats”) grandparents. If you do the math, that’s 134,227,728 of them. Before you were born you were “scattered” energy, inside all of your ancestors. A piece of you existed in each one of them. All of this has filtered down to you. Pretty amazing stuff.

The Universe created all of those people in order to create you at this point in time. You’ve existed all this time through other beings. You came through all of those ancestors just to be here today. You are not some random biological event. The Universe had you in mind since the beginning, long before your physical incarnation. If the Universe didn’t love you, you would have never existed in the first place.

That’s a whole lot of loving that’s been done in your name. Wow. Mind definitely blown.

Embracing YOUR Choices

In his book, A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle says, “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.

In other words, what’s happening to you in this exact moment is happening because it is happening. You’ve evolved to this exact point in time. This experience is a culmination of your thinking, of your feeling, and it is now manifesting before your very eyes.
So, how are you to approach such a moment?
Embrace it. 
Embrace it because this the experience you need to grow, to create, to express yourself fully, and to become whole.
How you approach this moment depends on only you. You have the power to make it work for you…or against you. It’s your choice.  It’s always been your choice.
Fighting the experience won’t make it go away. Resistance is like a virus — it comes back stronger than ever, until you inoculate it by embracing and facing the experience — by opening up to it and asking it what it has to teach you so that you can start making new (and more informed) choices. 
A “new earth” starts with a “new mind.”
What kind of world are you creating for yourself?  What kind of world would you like to create?

Love, Creation, and the Universe

When you love something — another person, a place, an animal, a thing, yourself — you are loving the Universe in that form.

Everything around us is worthy of love because everything was, and is, created out of love. At any given moment the Universe is expanding, meaning that it is continually birthing and rebirthing itself through us and through the things around us. It’s the energy of love that makes the Universe expand. This is the power of creation.

The Universe is truly magical.

Look around. There’s a whole lot of loving to be done.
