Obstacles Focus Your Attention
By Barbara Brennan

What is this sacred holy longing
within you?
What do you wish to use
the rest of your life for?
How do you wish to spend your time?
With whom?
Doing what?

What is it that you wish to create
from deep within your interior that, perhaps
you have had a small glimpse of,
even a magnificent obsession with,
and yet, for some “reason”
it appears not to be happening.

Consider the possibility
that everything that you may have experienced
in the “so-called” past
that appear to be obstacles in your way
are actually stepping stones.

Lessons, experiences
that are giving you exactly the learning
that you need to accomplish
this sacred longing within you.

When you begin to recognize
these so called “obstacles” as stepping stones,
it will be much easier
to switch your intention
to attention to what is occurring
in the sacred moment of now.

Gayle’ s Reflection:

Open your eyes and begin to see the obstacles as stepping stones. Wow! The last four months have been filled with obstacles littering my landscape like mines beneath the surface. One wrong move and BOOM! Explosion and debris everywhere. This process of coming apart and coming back together with focus on life purpose is what we all do. Gratitude for the journey helps ease the frustration of the recurring wound-bomb-obstacle that will eventually be set off.

The explosion brings the hidden pain to the surface to focus on and for us to love and transform that aspect of our being. Avoiding or moving around the obstacles keeps us trapped in places we really don’t want to be in. Such as jobs that make us feel small or relationships that have more conflict than we want. The mines are there to guide us toward our true selves relieving us of our “so-called” past. As we resolve the pain within the obstacle into healing balm, a vista of where we really are opens to us.

Learning the lessons, witnessing the transforming obstacle to the stepping stone brings our attention and focus to our real desires, our true purpose and heart’s desire. It is almost as if they are hidden underneath the boulder where they did not dare to come out, be visible, and found. This metaphor obstacle/boulder to stepping stone gives us permission to look and find out the truth.

Let yourself arrive at the lessons and experiences with fresh eyes focused on the PRIZE – YOU – YOUR LIFE! Allow yourself to explore it and bring it forward with your full attention on you. What you want to create as your life.

Focus upon the stepping stone of lessons and experiences and choose to sing and beam brightly your passion play.

Thank you Barbara, I now see the obstacles as the stepping stones of my life.

See you tomorrow,
Love, Gayle

Let the Light Resound

Day 16 SOS Poetry Project

Let the Light Resound
By Barbara Brennan

Honor the spark of the divine
that rests within your center
that rests within every cell of your body
that rests within every cell of your being.

Allow this light to resound
throughout your entire physical body and your field.
Let it move outward into your life
to all those you love and hold dear.
Recognize this light within you.
Recognize the greater truth of who you are,
and step with us into the 21st century
into this great step of evolution
where the so-called division
between the spiritual and material worlds
will be recognized as an illusion.

For how could matter not be spiritual?
How could any part of life not be holy?

Feel the longing in your high heart
and honor it.

You are each born with a wonderful task
What is it that only you,
in your unique individuality
can give?

Let the voices that say,
“Who do you think you are?”
fall away.

Listen to the passion of your heart.

Gayle’s Reflection:

In my terror of not being able to pay the bills and considering closing my office space I read this poem and remembered it is ALL an illusion. I remember to take one day at a time, one breath, and one bill. Who gets the call today to make yet another payment arrangement? The fear, shame, and resolution to acceptance that this is where I am now, brings peace to my fight or flight neuro-circuitry.

Right now, truly I am OK. Right now I am warm and feel safe.
Right now, I am alone, flying solo and I am with all of creation too.
Right now, I will honor me as divine spark, truly loved and protect by God and Goddess.
Right now, I feel honored to be amongst billions of Gaia’s children, striving and thriving to connect, heal, feel safe, and love.
Right now, I cannot deny the place of purpose, passion, and service held within my high heart.
Right now, I choose to carry on with faith in God’s divine plan for me.
Right now, I choose and am willing to surrender into the fear of not knowing how I am going to pay all that is due.
Right now, I accept the responsibility to make one call and handle one problem today.

My vibrating holy cells are telling me it is more painful to NOT stay the course than it is to jump ship. My beautiful task as a teacher is manifesting. I am still in the dark chrysalis moving toward release. This material world has its interpretations of payment for life daily. How can I perform and create into being what is needed to meet that demand? Through surrender to the process of creation…allow the support to arrive. Make clear the intention to receive more light and may it shine outwards. I am shedding off and transforming the negative aspect of;
“Who do you think you are?”

Bringing in more resounding light and declaring with passion the answer to that question was locked inside the transmuting cell.
I now speak and claim with passion …
I am a teacher
I am an author
I am an artist
I am a woman, daughter, mother, sister, aunt, cousin.
I am a warrior priestess.
This is who I am!
This is who you think I am!

Thank you Barbara for asking the question.
See you tomorrow,
Love, Gayle.
