May you feel your goodness.

May you practice loving kindness towards yourself.

May your weekend be blessed with peace, inspiration, and laughter.

May your light shine!

 

In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus said, “If anyone asks, “Where do you come from?” tell them, “We came from the light, from the place where the light came into being of its own accord.”

And, in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus said, “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works…”

 

This weekend I will be busy reviewing the proof copy of my new book, Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life, so I will see you back here on Monday…

Happy Weekend to you!
Let your light shine!

StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Blessing: May You Be Willing to Do the Work When the Work Shows Up

 

May you face difficult emotions with courage.

May you remember that emotions are just energies passing through.

May your weekend be blessed with authenticity and bravery and comfort.

May you be willing to do the work when the work shows up.*

 

Dear reader,

When difficult emotions arise, do you tend to run away from them and fill yourself with distractions? Or do you stop everything and tend to them?

In my experience, when difficult emotions arise, if I try to push through and carry on with my plans, I find that I cannot enjoy myself… So I think it is better to just stop and tend to the emotions first. That is called doing the work when the work shows up.

The thing is, our natural human tendency is to push away pain and seek pleasure. But, the things that really bother us are points of inquiry. Our triggers are actually very juicy and when we lean into them fully, by asking why and how questions, then they often will bear very sweet fruits!

So, my dear reader, my blessings for you this weekend are to face your juicy triggers. If you tend to run away from difficult emotions, make it a new practice to stop and tend to them. Surrender to the energies passing through you. If something is upsetting you, ask why and how, and then listen deep within for the answers.

If you currently do not have any difficult emotions passing through, thank your happy stars and enjoy your weekend plans!

This weekend my plan is to work on the final stages of publishing my new book, Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life… Well, that is my “plan” but since there have already been a few delays to publishing this book, I just have to trust that it will happen in “right timing” which I sure hope will be this weekend! 🙂

See you all back here on Monday…

With lots of love,
Teja

StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Blessing: May You Commit to Living Your Ideals

 

May you align with your beliefs and visions.

May you be a resolute person.

May your weekend be blessed with even the smallest ways of contributing something of value.

May you commit to living your ideals.

 

In a recent post (“Half-Way Through 2019: Goals Review Time!”) I shared that for many years on my spiritual journey I straddled two worlds… In one world I wanted to be a nun, and in the other world I wanted to find prince charming. In 2011 I ordered a gold snake ring (with amethyst crystal eyes) and placed it on my wedding ring finger to signify that I was married to Lord Shiva (an aspect of God in the Hindu trinity)… And I wore that ring for five years, during which time I continued dating earthly guys! Finally one of my sons convinced me to take off the ring and surrender to my desire for a partner…

Fast-forward to 2018, when I decided to renounce that desire and go fully for nunhood… One year ago today I put that snake ring back on my wedding ring finger, and for this whole year I have remained resolute in my decision to live in one world rather than straddling two worlds… And it has been hard work to get to where I am now, but it has been worth it. Lately I am feeling happier and happier (knock on wood!), and I am truly enjoying the happiness of the Spiritual Life.

Do you have any inner conflicts about your desires and visions? What are your ideals? What can you do today to live your ideals more fully?

May you feel happier and happier,
every day in every way!
