The Life that is Waiting for You

By Jane Large (CCSS Collective Member)

There is a life that is waiting for you. A life that Spirit has been calling you to find within your heart, within the very essence of your being. Spirit has been calling to you, through symbols and messages, waiting for the day that you would see, the day that you would listen, to its call, the call from within the depths of your soul.

Spirit has been waiting for the day you to put the pieces together. To put together the pieces of information, the hints, the nudges, the jiggling stirring within you. Waiting for you to put the pieces of your life together, perhaps together again after a long time of separation, separation from your heart, your essence, your truth.

Spirit is waiting for you to find the courage that exists deep within your bones. The courage you will need to experience, and then to act upon what you see and hear, what you feel, what you taste, what you smell. Your Spirit senses are drawing you to live the life that is waiting for you, a life of truth, of courage, of authenticity, of love, and of our very nature. A life that reflects our connection to all and to our great source, the essence of all of Creation, that exists within each one of us at the centre of our hearts. And it is that source, our connection to the One Whole,that is calling us to live the life that is waiting, waiting for us to answer.



Home Practice

For me, part of awakening to the life that is waiting for me is to open my senses to see the symbols and hear the messages Spirit is sending me. These symbols and messages are Spirit, my Spirit, my connection to the One Whole, to all of Creation, calling out to me. So when I react to something – be it what I perceive to be a “negative” or “positive” stimuli- I now understand that this is Spirit calling me to pay attention, to remember something.

Sit or move in nature, or another relaxing space, and take time to go within your heart and reflect on the following guiding questions:
* What symbols or messages have been calling to your heart throughout your life?
* What are you being called to understand, acknowledge, or remember through these messages and symbols?
* What actions are you being called to take that answer your heart yearnings, to receive the life that is waiting for you?


Collective Song
