Look Out For That Tree

“Even the greatest was once a beginner. Don’t be afraid to take that first step.” – Unknown

One of the hardest things to do is try something for the first time. I remember when I first sat on a motorcycle to drive it instead of on the back as a passenger. It was a dirt bike and we were in a field, thank God, and not on a street. Another plus was that my boyfriend who was teaching me was way over 6 feet tall and his arms were long enough to reach the brake and the handlebars. If not, we were destined to plow into a tree at the end of the field. Being a beginner has never come easy for me. I always want to hit the ground running. One exception to this was learning to play the game of darts. I seemed to have some skill at it but in the town where I learned to play there were masters at the game. It was intimidating to a beginner, so I observed and took mental notes of what I saw. I went on to be a very skillful motorcycle rider as well as competition dart player.

Dear Angels, while some things come to us naturally as downloads and intuitive hits, other things require practice and patience. When we first begin to chant, for example, it takes practice to develop our own cadence. Meditation can be challenging for many until we figure out what works and practice that.

Dear Ones, as you awaken to your spiritual self, you will find many such things as those mentioned which require focus and dedication. Just as a physical skill needs practice in order to excel, so too do your spiritual tools. Even prayer requires discipline if you are serious about communicating with the Divine. You may have heard that you are to “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances …” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) and perhaps did not understand that it is accomplished by practicing shifting your thought process and letting each moment and each step be a prayer. It all comes down to one question, Dear Ones. Do you want to connect with who you are as a spiritual being? You have to want that before any of your spiritual practices will become a regular part of your life experience. When you do decide to apply yourself to practice these tools that help you grow spiritually, it will be as easy as hitting a bullseye or riding a motorcycle once you figure out how it works.

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to persevere in my spiritual practices daily and look out for trees.
