“Until you spread your wings you’ll have no idea how far you can fly.” Napoleon Bonaparte
I have watched videos of a baby albatross trying to figure out what to do with its wings. There is a precision to it and it takes many tries and persistence. The more practice the bird does, the faster it will be soaring over the ocean. “The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it” is a line from Peter Pan. We can talk ourselves out of anything – even being successful! I had a wonderful talk tonight with some very interesting people about practice. One is a doctor who said “doctors don’t become good doctors without a lot of practice.”
Dear Angels, from the moment we come to earth we start practicing. We practice crawling, walking, talking and basically every skill in life. How well we do in any one of these depends on how much effort, or practice, we put into it. Can we “practice” being more spiritual?
Dear Ones, your spiritual practice is the most important thing you will do in your lifetime. As you connect in with who you truly are, you will begin to use certain skills or “tools.” Some of these are prayer, meditation, self-talk and affirmations. The more you spread your wings using these tools, the more understanding and confidence you will have in yourself as a spirit being. Every one of you has the ability to soar. It may take you a few tries to figure out what to do with your wings, just as the albatross does, but you will get it. The only thing holding you back is your decision that you cannot do it. Practice being successful by practicing your spirituality. Be kind to each other. Lift each other up instead of tearing someone down. Be a cheerleader when someone is trying something new and let them know you are interested in their success. Show gratitude in all things in life. Start each day with gratitude and it will turn your life around for the better. Know how amazing you truly are. Practice telling yourself this until the message fully sinks in. Just enjoy each moment and you will be soaring and enjoying the view from a higher elevation!
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to be the greatest cheerleader I can be to others and to myself.
