Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale. 🍂 In my new video (link in bio) I go over 5 ways I like to celebrate the Autumn Equinox, which will be this Saturday. What are some of the ways you like to celebrate this time of year? 🍁
WHAT IS GOD?
I have always felt naturally connected to god/goddess/the divine/source/consciousness/love... but I was mentally unaware of what that feeling was for most of my life.
When I was 12 I wanted to start my own religion called Happiness where people followed whatever made them happy 😍
I believed in a power greater than me but, growing up in a non-religious family, we rarely talked about the topic so I didn’t develop many beliefs.
Shortly after my 21st birthday I read Eckhart Tolle’s book “The Power of Now” and I suddenly understood what this energy was - consciousness!! ✨✨ I finally had a name to assign to this loving presence I had always been tapped into but unable to explain. And then my whole life changed... I have spent the last several years consciously deepening my relationship with the divine. I have dedicated my whole life to embodying this energy, which I feel as love, joy, freedom, empowerment and peace within me ❤️ I have experienced such blissful, transcendent states that to me there is no doubt this energy is the basis of all life! 🌈🌈🌈 I feel you can only know what god is through your own embodied experience however... Many people have not had such experiences and therefore do not believe in god, which is totally fair enough. We all have our unique perception of this energy, based on our conditioning and beliefs.
If we want to open more to the possibility of knowing god then we might choose to incorporate meditation, yoga, mindfulness, working with plant medicine, singing, dancing or something creative into our lives. Through such practices we can start to access expansive states of consciousness and develop our own experience of what god is.
Singing is my favourite way to connect with the divine and, because I have sung all my life, I give it a lot of credit for the innate divine connection I have felt so blessed with 🎵🎵 When I sing I feel full of joy, love and power. Singing has got me through the most challenging, stressful times of my life, and the few years where I stopped singing I got really sick!! (Continued in comments...)
