About 14 years ago I was sharing an inflatable kayak with my husband. The sun was out. The river was winding thru the tall, red rock walls outside of Moab, Utah. Really everything was perfect. The only thing outside of that moment was my attention. I was missing my children. They were visiting my ex-husband and his family.
My mind was going to the places of what if…. things out of my control.
I noticed the water was moving faster. In the distance there were some boulders surrounded by rapids. I brought this to my husband’s attention. He was not too concerned with the churning water. I was getting more and more worried. We only needed to go farther to the right, or farther to left to avoid the biggest boulder.
As my attention focused more intently on potential disaster, it became less likely we would avoid it. My husband remained calm. The nose of the kayak was grabbed by the whirlpool. I fell out of the kayak into the swirling water. My husband remained in the kayak and passed me by. I grabbed hold of the boulder and attempted to stand in the place I had wanted to avoid.
I was so mad! From the shore a man yelled instructions at me. I held tightly to the rock. He called, “let go, it will be alright”. I kept my tight grip. The rapids continued to hit me. The water splashed in my face, I could not see clearly. I refused to let go. My grip kept me in the exact place I was afraid of.
The man on the shore took some pictures of me lost in my fury. I refused to trust and let go. Looking back; it is funny. I also realize this is exactly how life is. When I finally became tired of the battle, I let go. The river carried me gently away from my fear. All along it was up to me to let go and trust.
In our wonderfully responsive world we have the ability to bring rapids and boulders to life. Worrying about the worst case scenario is welcoming churning energy somewhere into our life. I was worried about my young children. They were miles away from me. My worry and stress created a perfect place for me to sit and hold onto the anger of a situation from the past.
Another time this was so perfectly illustrated in my life involved a medical condition. My health was at stake and the answers and diagnosis were not easily found. I established myself in a spiral focusing on bad health, getting more medical tests and waiting. It was not until I let go, and decided no more tests, that wellness was found. I let go of the thing I feared most, bad results, death and dooms day. I stepped away from the medical model and found peace. I found the deep peace that I share with others today.
Letting go of my fear is what changed my life. Releasing my fears allowed me to make a connection to the Universe, God, and Angels or whatever you want to call our higher power. It was my fear that was blocking the connection.
I know to let go of what we hold onto so tightly can be really challenging. Maybe if we recognize fear as holding onto the very thing that we are afraid of, we can let go of what we dread most. Let go and trust you will be guided to a better place. A place where peace resides. In fact, that place is within you, all you need to do is let go and trust.
Let go of the anger for others. Let go of the fear that circles around relationships. Let go of the feelings of powerlessness that swirl throughout your life.
What is the boulder you are hanging on to? What is causing the rapids in your life? Are you ready to let go?

I was asked to write a blog on letting go, so here it is. May we each have the strength and awareness to set ourselves free.
Many blessings of love, light and compassion,
One of the greatest gifts we can offer each other is our true attention. A spell of inspiration and confidence is cast, when everything else is put aside. The message is sent. I care about you.
Really listening is taking the time to hear; with -out trying to control or fix what is going on in the speaker’s life. It is the act of being present. This is one of the most powerful things we can do, and it’s free.
What happens to relationships when people are not being heard? Partners, family and friends often begin to drift away. Sharing your presence with another deepens the trust and the invisible connection of love.
Are you listening to the loved ones in your life? Are you picking up the messages they are trying to share? All of us have fallen short at one time or another, in being present. Here is a little quiz to see how you are doing.
Make a list of your loved ones, include your animal friends, Angels, Guides, Universe and even those that have passed. Give each being, their own space on a piece of paper. Next to the name, write down the last time that individual had your undivided attention. How long has it been? When were you fully aware of their energy.
If you were gifted a message, what was it? Write it down. You may be inspired to reach out and listen. This is deserving of your attention.
The Universe is sending us messages. Just like we are sharing messages. There is nothing more powerful than being aware of the vibrational equation of all.
The Earth is sharing messages. Some are gentle and life confirming. Every Spring trees awaken and share beautiful new life. The snow melts and grass appears. The sun shines and the migrations begin. I love these messages. They remind me of the continuation of life.
We have other messages being shared. As a whole humanity has drifted from the connection with Earth. Our Planet is speaking louder. A reminder that humanity is only part of the equation of eternal life.
Our planet wants us to listen. We are asked to be present with the energy of Earth. There is nothing that needs to be controlled or fixed. Some believe it is too late for humanity’s survival. I believe it is perfect timing for us to reconnect with the ways of the Earth. Now is perfect. Trust what the Earth is offering.
The Earth is directing us to shift our view of the world. We are all connected. The water ways are changing and redirecting the patterns of migrations. Our foods will change. We will slow down to feel the vibration of everything. We are being shown a new way of living on Earth. We only need to listen.
When you sit in the presence of Earth, what messages do you receive? When do you feel most connected or aware of the Earth’s energy?
The message I receive from the Earth is of love and protection. I’m also shown how cultivating healthy and organic crops is sharing love. Caring for the animals and water is honoring the Earth. Caring for each other is honoring the Earth. We have nothing to fear.If we allow our-selves to listen and trust, we will be shown abundance, love and a life that holds sacred space for all.
You are a vibrational change pulling deeper into a new awareness.
Sit with your eyes closed and experience the love you are channeling. Feel the energy pouring thru you. You are bathed in love and lack of nothing.
You have the ability to understand the animals. You can feel the energy of the plants. You understand the rays of the sun.. You understand the language of water. This connection is taking you to a place of divine recognition. You are adjusting to the awareness of being all.
The wisdom that has always been with you awakens. It is lit by the high vibrations that move thru you.. A shift is occurring. You are able to experience the being of all.. Energy flashes. You experience the completeness of eternal wisdom. The mind of each being touches your soul. This awakens a surge of power. You understand your ability to communicate, to feel, hear and know all.
The is no longer a separation between you, Earth, animals or even the stars.. All is complete.
