We are all robe washers in our expression of humility.

Filed under When Did You Die?

robe flow

In my early forties, I went on a sacred shamanic journey, seeking to know more about myself and what awareness I needed to experience so I could be a more balanced spiritual being. As I entered this deep meditation, I was met by several people, and they took me up on a small hill. They reached over to the side where we were standing and placed upon me an incredible gorgeous red and gold robe. It looked like something Elizabeth Taylor would have been proud to wear. It was so elegant and warm. I took to it immediately—I have always had the type of taste that desired the finest of things. So this beautiful, elegant robe got my full attention. I could feel it and be in it as if it were a real experience.

In a moment or two, the individuals removed the robe and put it away. They were taking it away from me. One of them grabbed me by the hand and then walked me down to the river, where there was a woman washing robes. The robes were all sizes and shapes, all were white, and some were torn. The woman was scrubbing them and placing them into a large cauldron. Then she hung them on a line to dry. She said to me, “Robe Washer!”

When I returned from the meditation, I spent time writing about this vision. I realized that I was more than wealthy, for I was connected to the infinite resources of the earth that had birthed me, yet in order to truly experience the depths of my spirituality, I needed to keep my ego in check by knowing part of my nature as Robe Washer. No matter where I may go in my life, what my credentials are, or how

many people are interested in what I have to say, I am Robe Washer. I am never too good or, I hope, too arrogant to ask for forgiveness or to allow people to be who they are. I do not ever want to be a know-it-all, just a robe washer who knows nothing at all; therefore, I can know everything and anything. I am humble to what can be rather than determined that things have to be.

Just saying the name Robe Washer brings me from my expression of presumed arrogance to sacred humility within seconds. I am able to shape-shift from self-righteousness to self-right thinking in a matter of seconds.
Humility is not a word of weakness; it is a word of great strength. Humility makes the space between what used to be and what can be a space of gratitude. Humility is the immense energy that reminds us how fortunate we are to be birthed on this planet and what a privilege it is to know we are never separated from Mother Earth and Father Sky. We are all one woven fabric of the divine.

What is a Broken Nonauthentic Person

Filed under When Did You Die?

break

A broken nonauthentic person is usually brokenhearted, waiting for something new to save him or her, and broken financially as well. Our society and culture must die so we may wake up and get back into using our minds and hearts and intuition to guide our decisions.

We are bombarded with messages by the following influencers:
Because the Bible says so
Because the preacher says so
Because the doctor says so
Because my parents said so
Because the billboard tells me so
Because the commercials on TV, radio, and the Internet say so
Because someone else says so

When we surrender to what others say we should be and do and it does not feel inherently right for us, we give up the seat of the real me. Whatever your influencers are telling you, make sure they have manifested in themselves what you are seeking.

Beware of the Influencers

Filed under When Did You Die?

me and my shadow

As a spiritual leader and as a human being who has felt very connected to Spirit since I was five, I have always been fascinated with the idea of why people do not change that much. I have also been fascinated with why people become disenchanted and feel disconnected so early in their lives. I totally understood this in the area where I was raised because people had already been so heavily influenced by being told what to do, what to feel, what to believe in, and how life was going to be. “Don’t expect too much, and you won’t be disappointed” is a mantra I remember all too well. When we have sacrificed our ability to use free will and choice and have given this powerful ability over to preachers, doctors, 24/7 news, and other realities, we can change only as the influencer changes.

These influencers cast a great shadow over us and limit our ability to grow into who we are meant to be. A tree with another tree hovering over it will eventually bow down. The same is true for us as we continue to give up our seat, our place in this life. All of a sudden life does not have a place for us. Our childhood dreams and goals become nothing more than shadows left on our trail.

Honoring the Past, Present, and Future as the Now Time

Filed under When Did You Die?

which way to go?

Ms. B. used to read a beautiful writing called “A Ritual for the Path of My Faith” before each weekend retreat and ceremony. Take a few minutes to find the perfect object to represent your current life and faith. Sit comfortably, facing your past and holding your present, and read the following words (you can also record them beforehand and listen to them or use them as a model to make up your own words):

I face the path of my faith.
This is the way I’ve come,
the journey my soul has taken
to bring me to where I am today.
I recall the people I’ve met on this path,
teachers all,
kind or unkind.
They walked with me awhile,
showed me their paths,
and so I bless their teaching.
I remember events and encounters along the way,
pleasant or painful,
always instructive—
Whatever happened, it was useful,
and in its own integrity was beautiful.
But I have learned to follow my own path,
I have learned where I must go.
I bless the path of my past.

Still holding the symbol of your present, turn around. You are turning your back on your past and putting it behind you. Continue:

Holding my present in my own hands,
I face my future.
Every day I step forward on an unknown path,
The Secret to Your God-Personalized System 105
a unique path sprinkled with star stuff
of Spirit.
Past, present, future are one time
and here I am,
where I’m supposed to be—
now and always:
my path is with Spirit.

I would recommend to you, as a student of life who is greatly longing to be an intentional spirit, that you practice this ritual for three months and see how your life changes. Read this ritual every morning before you start your day and make notes in your journal of how your life changes.Your energy will greatly increase from this sacred practice. Imagine! And you will feel less disconnected and drained, more impassioned and energized, and you will be living on the path of now.
