Evolving Into The Divine Self

Evolving Into The Divine Self



Awakening to our relationship with our divinity and the creating our reality from divine consciousness is a critical aspect of our evolution during these times of change.  Making this inner connection opens us up to a greater awareness of ourselves as the real creators of our lives.  Through the conscious energetic and physical sensation of aligning with our inner goodness we come into living more and more in a state of well-being, where thoughts are sweet, good and timing is perfect; where our point of attraction in a law of attraction universe is our hands and we feel love and appreciation for our part in humanity’s expanding consciousness.    Even when we encounter challenges our focus is on meeting it through connection with the broader inner knowing of our truth and power, not according to others’ opinions, but from that place of love and appreciation for our own path of love and expansion.

Once we make connection with the divine within a change comes over us.  We begin to see ourselves in what Thomas Merton called the ‘light of sacred beauty’.  When I work with people in crisis I refer to it as the missing light in life, knowing oneself as the majestic, human-divine being. They might be going through trying times but as they surrender feelings of resistance and hurt they hold the promise of awakening within their hearts that leads to liberation from fear within themselves. Coming into conscious connection with our inner light is not only felt by and for each one of us individually, but in our connected humanity it contributes to the uplifting of all life on Earth.




Conceptually, we are talking about the sacred union between your human and Divine Self. But it is really much more than that because in experiencing that connection we consciously come into feeling and knowing a very focused frequency of love. In a sense, connecting with the Divine Self is a process of transformation.  It is taking the seed of consciousness that is already inside of you and has been there forever and growing it to become stronger. It is allowing your higher consciousness to speak to you, listening to that inner voice as it asks you to relax and trust everything to unfold for you in positive ways instead of being afraid of losing control. Rather than just passing through life, you live aware of the flow of the higher frequency energy and conscious of whether your direction or path is in accordance with the wisdom that dwells within you.




The consciousness Shift humanity is experiencing is extremely relevant to the survival of the planet and all life forms. We are interconnected by the very nature of our physical composition as well as our inter-dependency and co-existence.  Through awakening our awareness of and establishing conscious connection with the Divine Self we embody a higher energetic vibratory rate.  Because of that focus in the higher frequencies the energy grows in the quantum field accelerating the greater good of the planet and all life forms. For example, creating a life enlivened by the conscious awareness of unconditional love leads us to choices that reflect that love.  Exploring what unconditional love means for each individual brings about more sharing of unconditional love through our perceptions of who we are and the choices we make about how we live in the world. Compassionate, nourishing, kind, caring, uplifting – these are critical to our evolution and survival. When we take responsibility to bring more peace, harmony and love into our lives we are assisting to dissolve the divide between the human mind and the cosmic consciousness of love.




Life is a gift and we come to earthly life with the seeds of our divine nature within us. Take time and be out in earth nature. Sit by the lake, river, ocean or stream.  Listen to the bees, birds and rustling of the trees. Remind yourself when you experience the power of the natural world, there is power within you as well.


Also, remember that Intention is how everything we desire is created. Our thoughts, emotions, imagination and words have creating and healing power. Here are some other ways you can set your intention to nurture the awakening connection with the Divine Self:


·       Journaling is a way to focus your awareness and feeling and build momentum.

·       Ritual is a wonderful uplifting experience.

·       Meditation practice trains the mind to quiet. The inner space that opens is the doorway to connection with the Divine Self.

·       Mysticism can guide through the passages of life with the wisdom of sages.

·       Read about mythology.  Joseph Campbell is an excellent source.

·       Music is good for the soul and can carry you to expanded consciousness.

·       Make time to consciously relax and open your mind.

·       Shamanistic Journeying can give you information and show you your guides along your path.

·       Group meditation is a great way to experience transcendence.

·       Lucid Dreaming can provide insights and premonitions about your life.

·       There are sacred arts for nurturing the new energies of the divine feminine and divine masculine, which are inclusive, healing and altruistic.


One of the major benefits to connecting to the Divine Self is the empowerment that comes from opening to and receiving the assistance of the universe to adjust more easily to the dance of opposing forces experienced everywhere, whether it’s between the light and darkness, love and fear, abundance and loss, or in relationships. An integrated Divine Self does not mean that you are without fear, discord or suffering, but it means that you have balanced it and therefore neutralized it with its opposite effects. This brings peace, satisfaction and joy, and allows you to shift to a new consciousness level. Once you are aware of your connection and ability to shift into better feeling thoughts about a situation it becomes easier to slow negative momentum and choose a new perspective.


The Self-Transformation Path

The Self-Transformation Path

Part 1: Connecting With Your Inner Self

Recently while writing my book, Seeing With The Heart, I learned how deeply transformational taking a new perspective – a more relaxed, inner heart-filled perspective –  can be. Many of us have successfully reinvented ourselves at some point in our lives in an effort to get ahead in our careers, fulfill a dream like having a family, or perhaps become more fit to improve our health.  Unlike trying to make changes in what you do in order to achieve a specific goal, I am going to talk about a different approach, a paradigm shift approach to creating a life you love that involves shifting your perspective, opening your inner connection to your divine self, and consciously expressing inner energy in your thoughts, words and actions.

A Steady Source of Guidance Within

First, the perspective shift is awareness and understanding that any outer manifestation is determined by your consciousness in any given moment, and that you can develop your inner guidance to become your own authority and expand your consciousness.  Are you feeling emotionally balanced and enjoying your circumstances? Is your mood positive and uplifted? While ups and downs are normal in our daily lives, a general overall and pervasive feeling of hopelessness is a state of consciousness that usually means you are letting your happiness be dictated by outside conditions. The way to shift that is to solidly establish your inner connection with the ever-present energetic flow of your divine self, which is the co-creative source energy that guides you, rather than by taking actions to correct or make things happen in the outer world.  This connection has been referred to as intuition, soul awakening and universal energy and it can be realized when you expand your sense of self through heart-centered or spiritual vision. It is not a surrendering of control. By any name it is simply opening to your soul’s voice, living your path with an empowered consciousness that brings the ideas, energy, vision, clarity and connections you need to move forward with your goals confidently and in sync with your authentic self. By receiving the power, love, wisdom, peace and inspiration that flows as you explore and perceive with the loving guidance of your inner self you can dissolve thoughts, beliefs and limitations that might emotionally impede you from experiencing all the good things you desire. Inner alignment to the core energy of your divine self-supports you in transforming your life experience from fear to freedom, feeling the love and guidance of the universe billowing your sails on your journey.

The Gift of Inner Connection

Your connection with your inner self is the biggest gift you can offer to yourself and those who surround you. It is the cornerstone of awakening human consciousness and engaging in the work of personal transformation in our lives as well as contributing to the shift of living more harmoniously in our communities.  Through heart-centered and awareness practices like journaling, meditation, nature walks, and other mindfulness activities you usher in and strengthen your connection to pure, positive energy. You choose those relationships and circumstances that radiate similar energy and grow through joy rather than through pain. Your resistance is lessened and you no longer need be affected by other people’s opinions, moods or energy. Every level of your life and consciousness changes, bringing new perspectives on your life, purpose and relationships.

Standing in the center of your inner energy, aligned with your true nature, seeing yourself and others through your heart, is the most powerful path of transformation.  This is how you bring through what you want to create in its most beautiful form, and in the process, give back to yourself the energy of love and joy. Seeing With The Heart is intended to assist you in opening up to the gentle and sweet consciousness of the truth of your being at whatever level of receptivity you are currently experiencing.

Exercise for Conscious Inner Connection

Here is an exercise for lifting up to the light within that allows you to more easily change your life.

  • Start by relaxing and getting comfortable.  Take several deep breaths slowly in and out.
  • Affirm that you are wise, loving, confident and powerful.
  • If you are ready to enter a new chapter of your life, you are already experiencing inner changes.  Your divine self is motivating you to make changes and showing you the way. Take a moment to acknowledge your inner, true self.
  • Think of the area of your life you wish to change.  Feel your divine self within you permeating your being, calling you forward on your path. Allow the divine self to shower that area with light, feeling it fill up and brighten up with warm, pink, gold light.
  • Ask that any blocks, thoughts, beliefs, emotions that might hold you back be released. Acknowledge and give permission for them to leave.
  • Ask for and open to receive from your divine self the qualities to move forward – inspiration, clear guidance, motivation and opportunities.
  • Picture your inner light growing brighter resonating with your desire and all those you encounter you can benefit from this light. Visualize your light connecting with all the cells in your body, and going forth from you with love to light your way, radiating to the earth, others and the universe.
  • Now let your vision go and retain the feeling that it has happened, you have received the change with joy.  Be open and expect things to change.
