Find You and #Claim You – October 16th – #Inspiration

October 16th

So now you see the delight possible with sobriety. Please continue to believe in yourself, in God, in life, in loving, in delight. When you believe in yourself, you shine. You empower others. Continue to live like that and all that you desire will find you and claim you.

The quote above is from The Messages: A Day Book section of The Presence Within: Channeled Guidance available in paperback and ebook.

The delight possible in sobriety is clarity of mind, taking personal responsibility for self-care, inner peace and the freedom to choose. Life can get so good that the need for a crutch becomes meaningless. We can clear out the emotional gunk, so the hook of addiction has nowhere to catch. We can refind balance, once we understand our pain and the need to numb it. We can forgive ourselves and others and release the pain once-and-for-all.

The quote above is from The Messages: A Day Book section of The Presence Within: Channeled Guidance available in paperback and ebook.

I’ve fallen behind in my writing. I’m glad that when I came back to sharing these messages, it was with this note that I started again.

The truth is, I have learned and processed a great deal. I am well aware that my dissatisfaction is the enemy and that everything flows better when I am in a good place. Today, at an event I worked, a gentleman started a conversation with me about addiction, recovery and the good sense it made to leave the past behind at some point and begin again refreshed.

I recognize in this man the unity he represents in leading me forward in grace, with his kindness and caring. Had I been in a foul mood, perhaps he would have shown up in my life being demanding and resentful. Or perhaps we wouldn’t have connected at all.

There are spiritual tests in life. We are who we are, where we are and to open to new experiences, we have to let go of what we have known. Can we find the joy in sobriety, if we are still partying? Can we discover true love, if we are operating at a level of lust?

Life is working on us continuously to move us forward, regardless, which is not to say that it doesn’t accept us for who we are, it does, but all of life is in a state of growth and expansion.

When we are eager for a change, what we have known will no longer satisfy us.  Life may still make offerings coming from where we have been, but we need only decline to move forward. Seeking our new path, we do find it. I’m finding that if I don’t chase it, it comes to me. It is surprising to feel that life is aware and does care. I know it has tested my sincerity before delivering the goods.
