Mandala Greetings!,

"What we are is God's gift to us. What we become is our gift to God." Eleanor Powell

"It doesn't matter where you are coming from. All that matters is where you are going." Brian Tracy

Every day, we have an opportunity to heal the past and step into our destiny.  To do this, we don't need more information or more workshops.  What we need is to pay attention and simply live the moment in the most authentic way we can.

Our minds are very important.  The mind orients us in time and space.  It evaluates possibilities.  However, it also constantly bombards us with information that it uses to form opinions.  We think these are our opinions - but they are the opinions of the mind.  The mind is like a computer, very useful, but lacking in essential human qualities like vision, wisdom and soul. 

To effectively navigate our destiny, we need to learn to use our hearts.  The heart communicates in feelings and images.  It whispers ideas and suggestions that come from a different source than the mind's fountain of information.  The mind's information comes from the earthly plane, while the wisdom of the heart comes from the source of life.

The source of life is energetic potential.  Life is the reality manifested from this potential.  The potential is neither "good" nor "bad" - it simply is.  Our reality flows from this energetic potential and we are the ones who evaluate the results. 

Discernment is the ability to see past the information the mind provides and act from the wisdom of the heart.  Envisioning our life and our world as we would like it to be sends a clear message into the unmanifested.  Developing our intuition and paying attention to our dream life are important tools.  Authentic ritual and ceremony can also send powerful messages about what we want to manifest.

When we use our hearts and our minds together, we can begin to create a reality that approaches our highest vision.  This is because we are harnessing the power of the energetic source of our reality.  When we work at the level of the energetic, we are projecting our visions into the unmanifested energetic potential so that they begin to shape our reality.  When we allow the visions of the unmanifested potential to penetrate the veil of our minds, we are being informed by source. 

Sometimes, the results of this process are astonishingly synchronistic - other times they are amazingly unpredictable.  Either way, the conversation between our hearts and our minds is the key to unlocking our highest potential and aligning with our highest destiny.
