Message to Self:
✣…Have courage, brave one — to allow ourself to free-fall into the empty space we fear — and ride the dragon that guards our hidden gold. Don’t allow their hidden fears to hold us prisoner anymore. Time to take back our power from the chaotic and wild energies around us — and let our Self rise — and fly! …✣
Supernatural · Castiel, The Angel
We need to stay strong through times of stillness and waiting.
We can gradually grow the garden of our dreams throughout all the days of uncertainty, and use the time well to still keep building our spiritual muscles.
And at all times we need to nourish ourselves with spiritual food that will gives us real spiritual strength.
The food that builds our spiritual strength is found in prayer, in meditation, in faith and in fortitude. And in keeping the channels open to the sustaining energies of Source —thus bringing in life energy to maintain our spiritual strength and vitality.
We find ourselves by losing ourselves in service to others. And in not allowing the voices of doubt and discouragement to enter our world.
When we pray for the strength we need, it’s a continuous process of humbling, refining and cleansing of our soul.
Although we may not achieve what we seek overnight, if we keep stretching and growing our faith and knowledge, our spiritual strength increases. Nurturing this spiritual force will give us strength, in the times that we need to gather inner power in order to keep moving forward.
Spending time in creation is a good routine of spiritual exercise and builds the muscles of our heart and soul. Creation happens spiritually before manifesting physically, and as we pray for the strength needed, we are filled with power in our inner being.
Then as we keep our resolve, we are strengthened through this strong commitment to our dreams.
In the lifetime of every master is a wealth of falls, mistakes and injuries but it’s through daily devotion and practice that the spiritual strength is gradually built to face life with dignity and grace.
Exercising our spirit and building spiritual strength gives us powerful inner peace to help transcend any hardships we may be experiencing.
And as we work slowly and surely towards our dreams, the quiet voice within awakens that will show us the way.

✣…Our existence here on Earth is truly a rite of passage on our journey back home.
Know this — the higher our calling — the greater our tests.
So have courage, my friend. Each day arise from your bed.
And don’t wait on the praise of others only listen to your God.
Our calling speaks straight and true to our heart when we are Spirit led…✣
