This morning I am hearing “I AM healed and holy, sealed and sacred”. What a beautiful thing to hear first thing in the morning, no? I am thankful everyday for this conversation with Spirit… and at times feel sorry for the me that lived so many years without this. Due to my own “closing the door” of course -- yet feeling pity for time lost, conversations lost, connection not experienced with Spirit.
My path has been an ecumenical journey of reconnection. Like walking the Campo de Santiago or the Appalachian Trail, this walk of faith is marked by beautiful perspectives of spiritual connection and belief. This path has been purposefully designed by Spirit to walk me through the gateways of understanding and compassion; threading me through the needle of my heart.
What at each gate entrance seems so different, like walking into a different walled city of ancient times, after spending a little time there and learning the language and getting to know the people and their culture, I see that each walled city (spiritual perspective) is more similar than not to the previous one or next one I will visit.
This Oneness journey is uniting my human-self understanding with my Soul’s knowing. Having begun the journey in Christianity and leaving it feeling empty, I passed through many spiritual gates of experience including metaphysical, new age thought, cosmic/galactic, and eastern traditions to arrive back to the Judeo-Christian gate of wisdom where I am healing my bruised perceptions.
This journey of walking through the wilderness of God’s creation has allowed me to choose my own pathway home. Blazing a trail back home to myself, my heart, and my relationship with God/Spirit/The Divine/Source has helped me heal stereotypes and judgments caused by seeing through others’ eyes instead of my own. The freedom to follow the Voice calling me each step of the way, has illuminated the path in a way that I never could have on my own.
I’ve realized that my wounded heart, was really a bruised heart. Bruised because of my fear along the way to fully hear and speak what I know to be true for me.
I have now entered the gate of Christ Consciousness, where the language and the stories, art and culture I am getting to know (or actually remember) with a broader perspective (an open heart) to see, hear, and feel the common ground tread by other travelers on this sojourn of faith.
Much of the languaging I use in my writings and teachings does reflect language from the Judeo-Christian traditions along with a blend of other spiritual words and concepts. This is how Spirit flows through me, as a channel to unite understanding and illuminate the similarities. Our hearts truly are One. One with God and One with each other for this is what we are, Love at heart.
Through any act of unconditional Love, however great or small it may seem, know that it is felt, it is seen, it is heard by all realms of the Divine. For Love is truly all there is.
These writings are an amalgamation of words to alchemize your understanding of who you are. Some words are mine, and others are from Spirit. I hope you find comfort, support and hope in these letters of love to you. Blessings and peace be with you, Dammah
