Baby Steps

“Never limit yourself because of others’ limited imagination; never limit others because of your own limited imagination.” Mae Jemison

If you have ever watched a baby learning to walk, you will understand that feeling of wanting them to succeed but at the same time being so anxious about what is taking place. Those first steps are so tenuous and those watching are pretty much holding their breath waiting for the fail moment when the butt comes crashing down to the floor. Sometimes it is that way with others in our life. We watch them begin to feel the strength of their spiritual legs and wanting to take off but very unsure of their ability to move forward. At times I feel as if I am going to pass out from holding my breath, and then I am pleasantly amazed at the spiritual growth I observe and celebrate. We are all wobbly at times, aren’t we? Not one of us has all the answers. We are helping each other along, sometimes questioning, sometimes sharing insight and sometimes absorbing the wisdom of those who have taken off running and paving the way.

Dear Angels, we understand that our spiritual growth many times has similarities to our physical growth. Please help us understand how to keep moving forward without being quite so wobbly that we feel we might fall down.

Dear Ones, indeed you will stretch your spiritual muscles just as you do your physical muscles. Your spiritual practices are what will propel you forward and give you the confidence to stand firm in your Divine presence. We cannot stress the importance of meditation enough. You will get out of it what you put into it. If you are only paying lip service and sitting still for a certain length of time thinking that is “enough” then you are far off track. To really benefit from your time with spirit, you must put forth an effort to listen. Many of you give up after a few minutes and decide that nothing is happening. It is in those moments of questioning that your guides are preparing you to receive more understanding. By you giving up, you are missing out on the lesson that will help you put the pieces of the puzzle together. Sometimes you throw a temper tantrum like a small child who didn’t get its way and you want to take your toys and leave. You are quitting one minute before the miracle happens. That feeling you have in the pit of your stomach is the stirring of energy that is opening doors to insight. Stay the course. Stop clock watching. Open up to that which will fill your soul and then stand firm on your feet, moving strongly forward with no wobble. Wrap your protective arms of love around each other as you find your sure footing and celebrate each forward movement. You truly are walking each other home.

Dear Angels, thank you for these beautiful teachings. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to not rush through my time I set aside to receive what my soul needs.
