Maybe it’s our first job, learning from our aunt’s passion, or a movie that gave us potent experiences that continue to resonate.

Empowerment in Choices

We were talking about Venus passing in front of the sun. My husband was enthusiastic about the breadth and depth of science that made it possible to predict such far-reaching celestial movements. I listened to his wonder and realized I look out a completely different window to ‘see’ what is happening in the sky above.empowerment, potential, courage, choices, intuition, self awareness, self help, Jeanne McElvaney, GoToSpirit.com, Time Slipping, Old Maggie’s Spirit Whispers, Spirit Unbroken: Abby’s Story, Harrietta’s Happenstance, childhood sexual abuse,

I know the science is there, but I feel more connected to the random beauty of something much bigger than me. It’s the same kind of mysterious magic I saw when I was a child watching the shimmering, rainbow-colored bubbles blown out of plastic sticks dipped in a bottle. For me, Venus was a messenger passing by to remind me beliefs are energy.

Courage to Dance with our Potential

empowerment, potential, courage, choices, intuition, self awareness, self help, childhood sexual abuse, Jeanne McElvaney, GoToSpirit.com, Time Slipping, Old Maggie’s Spirit Whispers, Spirit Unbroken: Abby’s Story, Harrietta’s Happenstance,Each of us is challenged by desires that don't fit the collection of beliefs we have gathered over time. We carry a backpack filled with things we want but can't seem to manifest. And when we look around, it often seems others have walked many miles in the experience we are seeking. Our yearnings fit in their lives like a pair of comfortable, old shoes.

Self Awareness and Choices

empowerment, potential, courage, choices, intuition, self awareness, self help, Jeanne McElvaney, GoToSpirit.com, Time Slipping, Old Maggie’s Spirit Whispers, Spirit Unbroken: Abby’s Story, Harrietta’s Happenstance,We sometimes get together with other people hoping their mood will elevate ours or, at least, soothe, energize, or distract us. In a way, we want to bring leftovers as our contribution to a potluck while hoping we’ll find apple pie to fill our plates.  Experience shows us it doesn’t work that way. Energy explains why it can’t.

Having More

There’s no doubt one day’s footprints could overlap those I’ve left behind on other walks, but the experience is never the same. It’s the same path, but the energy field has been altered by time, the people and critters that share this corner of the world, and Mother Nature.

Inspiration, Intention, and Dreams

empowerment, potential, courage, choices, intuition, self awareness, self help, childhood sexual abuse, Jeanne McElvaney, GoToSpirit.com, Time Slipping, Old Maggie’s Spirit Whispers,Personal dreams begin as a collage of wispy feelings, flashing images, and fluttery hope; it all starts before we recognize it’s happening for us. As the delicate layers build, we begin to see a picture of possible plans for our future. That’s when we start planting seeds, dreaming of a garden that will bring a new kind of beauty to our life. This is when we actively connect to the energy that will shape the outcome.

Energy Leaks in our Relationships

There are many ways to travel down the river of life. Imagine riding in a boat made from the energy you have gathered from your experiences and relationships as well as the energy you are creating with your beliefs, feelings, and thoughts. Seeing its shape, color, and size would reveal your inner world. Noticing the construction of your energy boat could give you insight.

That connection makes us feel safer, but we were still taking on water, slowly sinking, unable to catch the current that would take us to our potential.

Getting Lost in Doing

I had a plan, an intention, a destination. With some good ideas packed in my bag, a little bit of experience for a map, and a tattered journal of research, I felt so ready. I stepped on the path and started my journey.

I knew how it would feel. I believed I would arrive if I climbed the challenging hills and stayed steady on the learning curves. Along the way, I realized it’s quite natural to remember everything is energy in the beginning, but along the way it’s so easy to get lost in the ‘doing’.

Words Are Energy We Share

You could say each of us stands in the eye of the energy storm we create by what we believe about ourselves. Every thought that we accept, embrace, and nurture about who we are and how we fit into the world becomes the gathering force swirling around us. Like a tornado, it leaves a path of change behind as we move across the landscape of our days.

empowerment, potential, courage, choices, intuition, self awareness, self help, childhood sexual abuse, Jeanne McElvaney, GoToSpirit.com, Time Slipping, Old Maggie’s Spirit Whispers,The energy field we create for ourselves is what we leave with others. Though we may think ourselves small, sometimes slipping around the edges of life, we are never neutral. All energy is merging and commingling by its very nature. The words we use not only shape our experience, but everyone who sees or hears them. Remembering that can empower us to change our lives.
