Glimpsing Your Personal Heaven

In my private practice for the past 13+ years I have discovered how hungry we are to find deep fulfillment and loving, make wise choices for ourselves and the planet, and walk in union with our higher guidance.

Yet our days are filled with endless, empty lists of have-tos, shoulds, and must-dos. Quality time with our families, friends and ourselves is precious but brief. We swallow our food fast and information faster - and yet what our mind tells us does not bring us peace, and what we eat does not fill us up.

Ask yourself, what truly brings you lasting fulfillment and joy? What can you feed yourself that creates deep satisfaction? Which voice do you listen to for guidance when the hounds of fear, worry and anxiety are howling in your ears?

I believe this 'missing' enthusiasm and joy is found when we discover our personal heaven and begin living heaven on earth.

Accustomed to your ordinary world view, you fail to realize that another might exist beyond the dots of your to-do lists. Life presents many opportunities, each one capable of expanding your 'seeing' to encompass new possibilities.

I saw a major glimpse of my 'heaven' in 1987 during a 6 day personal growth seminar. At the time I was living a life many considered heavenly: happy marriage, two beautiful children, wealthy lifestyle, and plenty of time to pursue my fancies. Yet, in the wee hours of the morning my secret despair, loneliness and fear woke me up night after night. Inside I knew the lie of my 'happy' life. I did not know the purpose for taking my next breath. At the seminar when the facilitator began talking about the banquet table of life I suddenly beheld this larger way of living, this glimpse of heaven.

I wanted to bolt for the door.

The fear of facing the unknown 'me' inside was, at that time, bigger than living out my lack-luster life. But this defining moment did not fade from my memory. In time, I began the sometimes scary journey of moving beyond the dot-based experience, visioning my heaven and taking my steps.

Your heaven lies lurking just beyond those dots. And it takes an inside job to fully experience it. But upon seeing a glimpse of this larger reality do you abandon your dot-based reality? No, because mastering the shift from 'This is all there is' to 'Look at all there is!" takes patience, practice, guidance, willingness, grace, and time.

You can begin today.

Take a few minutes over the next week - schedule it right now in your day timer of PDA.

*clear your desk
*turn off the phone
*light a candle
*have paper and pen available
*close your eyes
*take in a deep breath
*allow the greater part of you to begin showing you, like gazing at a large movie screen, YOU living your personal heaven.

Be aware of how you feel as you 'watch' each area of your life align with this expanded arena. What is the new experience of your

*relationships?
*finances?
*career?
*health?
*creativity?
*spirituality?

Jot down those qualities: peace, joy, loving, ease, well-being, energy, focus, caring, relaxation, radiant health, compassion... or fear, sadness, regret. Accept whatever appears.

Step Two: If your heaven is available now, what do you need to let go of in this moment to experience it?

Allow the answer to come forward easily.

Breathe in deeply and take that step. The life you were born

to live is waiting.
