You Are the Answer

December 2, 2012

At the end of the day, all roads always and once again lead to the place inside of  you that echoes your truth.  If you are not happy in this place inside meant for solace that is to be your safe harbor, then no other anchor can hold you steady.  Surrender to this place inside and shine the light of reason on it.  Let no one disturb you at your core so you can be free to share your peace with others.                     -Robin B. O’Grady-

Ten years ago after a signficant life change that took me to my knees, I was living on a dirt hill with my children going to the food bank and feeling utterly hopeless about my future.  In all of my futility and bewilderment, I was forced to seek something, something inside of me, to help me move beyond my negativity.  Little did I know this would be the  catalyst to propel me into my new and amazing life.  Without realizing the magnitude of change that was to occur as a direct result,  I set up a corner of my room and began to rise twenty minutes early each day in an attempt to get “plugged in” and to find answers to the important questions I was seeking.

As I connected each day, I began to experience a strength inside of me that I never knew I had.  The answers began to come and my life began to change quickly and profoundly.  Now my life is amazing, filled with joy, love, contentment and accomplishment.  The answers and the benevolent spirit that moves us all was inside of me all along.  All I had to do was get quiet, ask, and listen.  Dozens of people over the years have shared similar experiences with me which has made my resolve to get connected each day even stronger.  I crave this time now and feel “off” if I am not able to start my day with meditation.

When I look back now, I am humbled, and so grateful.  When I look at you now I see the God in you too Namaste is an indian word and represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us  in our hearts. It is the acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another.

Here are some tools that helped me get plugged in;

  • Set aside a space where you can get connected each day or evening
  • Spend 15-30 minutes in your space quietly reflecting on your day, the people you love, and the things you are grateful for
  • Meditate (this simply means get quiet and focus) on any questions you want answered.  If your mind wanders off, just gently bring it back to your original question
  • It does not matter if no answers come right away, they will come with practice.  Take a few breaths and maybe a stretch and let your day begin
  • There are 3 rules to meditation; perseverance, perseverance, perseverance.  Just keep doing it whether you feel it is working in the beginning or not.

All of the answers you need you can find inside of yourself.  At the end of the day, you have the pen and you are literally writing the script of your life.  What is it you really want?  Hold still, listen, and act from that place and you will truly and surely begin creating your amazing life………….and remember, Optimists Rock!
