It seems we are all looking for someone who can help to heal us, to guide us and to enlighten us.  And there are plenty of healers, teachers and guru’s out there who are willing to do just that.

What if YOU were the Master your are seeking?  What if you have all the answers you will ever need?  What if all the healers, teachers and gurus out there were just there to remind you of your own brilliance?

What if…..

I’m here to tell you that you are the Master you seek and that you don’t need me or anyone else to heal you or teach you how to do it.  However, if you don’t know that you are the Master, it is nice to have others remind you, that is what I do!

I am a perpetual seeker so I know the temptation to try to find the answers to problems from some external source.  We have all been trained to look outside of ourselves for everything we need or want, so it is only natural to look outside for the answers to life’s most pressing issues.  We are also not supported in the idea that we have the answers and when we do happen to mention that we have the answers, we are often questioned as if we can not be trusted to KNOW.  But we/I/You do have the answers.  We do know!

The difficulty is often in the interpretation or reception of the answer to our questions that we are receiving.  It took me years of learning to trust myself enough to trust the answers I was receiving, answers that I just knew, when I needed them and sometimes answers that I heard in my mind.

I am not any more gifted than you are.  In fact I would consider myself a slow learner, maybe more accurately a defiant learner.  I discounted my own knowing for so long that I falsely believed that I was not something special and that other people could do it but not me.  We are all special, we are all gifted, we are all “All Knowing”, We are all connected to and part of the whole that is our Source and therefore we all have access to the same information!

Therefore we are all the Masters in our lives.

If you are as resistant and defiant as I was then you may want to find a teacher or mentor that can remind you of your brilliance, as long as they do not tell you that you “need” them to get where you want to be, that would be a guru complex and you want to stay as far away from that as possible!

You may need to be reminded of the ways you can connect with your own guidance and learn practical tools to do that.  This is where a mentor can come in handy.  Human nature tends to be very forgetful.  We learn amazing things, we preform miracles and then very shortly we forget all of it.

The best way I have found to combat this phenomena is to enact daily practices.  In the early days of my awakening to myself, to my Spirit, I had many mentors that reminded me on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis in the form of one on one mentoring, via monthly calls and annual conferences.  On my own I would listen to daily guided meditations and videos.  I did anything that I was guided internally to do, so that I could remember my connection to the whole, to my Source.

Over time I finally developed to skills needed to trust my guidance.  I finally got out of my own way and allowed myself to remember.  And in the remembering I regained my psychic abilities, my knowing.  My whole world opened up.  My previously limited world became an open expanse of possibility, unlimited, unbounded, pure potentiality.  I have access to everything, to everyone and to all knowing. 

This too is your potential, you are the Master you seek.  With a little effort and maybe some guidance, your life will transform.

If you are looking for a mentor to remind you, you can check out my services.  I will soon be adding some meditations as well.

The most important things to remember are that you are WORTHY, you are GOOD and that you are LOVED.  Sometimes those are the hardest things to trust about yourself, I know, but they are true.  As soon as you can let yourself remember that, everything else will come easily and naturally.

It is as easy as skipping rocks upon a pond…

With a loving and open heart,

To say that BEING is easy is not wrong and yet sometimes it can be just plain hard, or at least it feels that way.  You can feel dashed upon the rocks and tumbled about or stuck in an eddy going nowhere on your journey.  The ultimate goal is to be in the flow, to Be present in every moment of your life and let life show you where you are going.  As a tried and true, Be-er, living in the flow is what I strive for.  To live it and breathe it, to simply Be….

I am not perfect, none of us are, and just because I have written books, lead workshops, and basically make my living helping others to stay grounded and in their Beingness does not mean that I don’t trip up, sometimes stumble and fall headlong into the pool.  I strive to Be most of the time and sometimes I am successful and other times I fail miserably.  I am Ok with that.

In truth if I were so far into my Being as to never step out of its flow, I would no longer be connected to the world and, at least for now, I like being connected.

I have been really working on clearing out the old patterns and beliefs that still keep me stuck in past and out of my Being and past patterns of behavior that are not currently serving me.  It is deep work that has been and continues to be very rewarding.  As I have been doing the work it has stirred up a lot.  Much of which is undefinable and yet powerfully emotionally challenging.  I am working with a dear friend and mentor Sharon Reigie Maynard .  Even mentors and spiritual leaders need mentors, others who can see what we cannot and help lead us out.

This week has been particularly challenging, I have been working to get the BEING MOMENTS phone Apps up and running.  I’m working with a wonderful developer, Matthew Dean, and as technology can be sometimes, there have been a few snafus!  I have also been working with my Web developer, Steffen Fanger, very talented and wonderful at keeping me on point.   Now normally I can just go with the flow, let everything be in its own time and pace.  However, this week I have wanted to push….push….push!  The old habitual behaviors and control freakness have crept in and have been running the show full force for 5 days!  Ok, maybe not 24 hours a day but long enough to have me in a tizzy of self doubt and confusion.

Being – A Practical Guide to Living in the Moment, my book which is just about to be published and available online, it is a labor of love born of years of putting Being into practice and living it everyday.  It has been a wonderful teacher as I learn to let go, to know without a doubt that it has its own expression in the world and I am merely the vehicle for it to manifest into this dimension at this time.  I have been wanting it to be perfect and it already is.  All of the pushing and worrying and cajoling and whatnot will not make it any better any more perfect.  it was perfection when it came in and it will remain perfection.

So as a person Living Being every day, I am acknowledging that Being can Be messy, undone, disheveled and anything else that comes along with life.  Sometimes it’s just not pretty.  Always remember, there is always time to change your mind, move in a different direction, stub your toe, stumble and pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get back to it.  Life and Being are not a race to see who gets there faster, better and with the most brownie points.  Each one of us is here on our own terms, in our own way and pace and in our own flow.  So just relax and enjoy the ride!

If you find yourself on your own path of Being and are needing a little support… you can always check out my website for more suggestions…   www.lorayneevangelyn.com   Remember, Being is not the destination, it is the journey that continually unfolds. 

I wish you days filled with joy, laughter, plenty of love and a flow that is free from strife.

We often think that if we could just get organized that our life would be in flow, that if we just had a handle on things we could and would feel safe… Free from the troubles that seem to follow us wherever we go.

The truth is life can be organized or chaotic, messy or orderly. Those are not the things that determine whether you are in flow.  You decide, it is a choice.  Life has it’s own way of things and it is our perception of the events and circumstances of our lives that determines messy or orderly, Chaotic or peaceful.

You are the one that can choose to “Be” at peace living from this moment and this time or to be in a downward spiral of chaos and fear. 

I know that it can and does fell very real when you are in the midst of it, your heart races, you feel it in your gut and you want to wretch!  But, if you can stop, take a deep breath, re-center yourself and move out of the story you keep telling yourself and into the Truth,the Truth of who you really are… Spirit in form…, in an instant you can change everything.

You can walk out of the darkness of your experience and into the Light, You can move out of your past drama and into your present expression.  You Choose! You are the only one who can!

And when you do choose to be present, right here, right now you will discover that you have always been in the Light and that the darkness was merely a shadow of your past revisiting your now, present time experience.

What will you choose Today?
