I Choose Namaste...


As you can see by my recent posts I always address you with the word "Namaste" and I wanted to take some time to share with you exactly why I choose to address you in this manner.

The word Namaste is an Indian word derived from the Sanskrit language which means "I bow to you". I was first exposed to this word when I attended a local Unity church in South West Atlanta by the name of Hillside Chapel. When ever the founder, ministers or speakers would address the congregation the first thing they said was "Namaste, I behold the Christ (or Divinity) in you. " Then the congregation would reply "And I in You". I found this practice interesting since it was always spoken in a manner which communicated humility and respect from one person to another.

And so it is that I use the word "Namaste" with humility and respect to you as I behold and bow to the Divine within you which is the True you.

I wanted to share my thoughts around this word with you for two reasons, first because whenever you visit my blog or my social network and you read this term it is my desire that my love and respect for the Divinity that lives in each of you be communicated and that you know that what you read is expressed from one Divine being to another.

Second I share this with you in hopes that you will choose to recognize the Divinity that exists in all others (and yes even in those who do not always express themselves from that Divinity) and that in your interaction with them you too would to choose to honor them.

And what is the benefit to meeting others this way? It expands the awareness of our Divinity and the Divinity in others and helps us to act in a loving manner.

When we consciously choose to acknowledge the Divine Being that is inherent in all others we allow our own Divine Being to express it's self towards them. When our Divine Being is expressing itself we act from a space of true power and we move out of our limited self and we create more Love energy in the universe.

Our Divine self which is our true self is then able to co-create with the Divine self of others for the purpose of creating the very things we desire for our lives and these things manifest with effortless ease.

Simply put we get out of our own way with our limited thinking and and allow the Divine to perform "its good and perfect work".

So the next time someone cuts you off while you are driving or acts in a manner that upsets you I hope that before you react that you will take a deep breath, look them in the eyes and also choose to Namaste.

Facing My Self....


Normally when I write my posts I pre-write them so that I can make sure the idea that I have received from Spirit is made clear to you the reader. But today I think I'm just going to do this one on the fly because I just feel like I have something I need to share and it is my prayer that it will bless someone else who might be having a similar experience in their life.

This morning as I was getting ready to start my day I was thinking about a situation that I am currently facing and I was feeling fear around it.

Let me give you some background. Over the last 2 1/2 years I have experienced much disruption in my life. I lost the home I had built to foreclosure, I have not been able to maintain stable employment, I find myself living "paycheck to paycheck" and the biggest disruption of them all... I chose to send my son to live with his Godparents and then his father because I was not in a position to care for him as I would have liked.

So this morning I was looking at my current circumstances and where I find myself and asking "what are you going to do?". You need to bring in a steady stream of income so that you can find a place where you and your son can live, your bank account is almost empty and you have bills that need to get paid, you have no emergency funds and most of all your son is wanting to return home to live with his mother.

Now don't misunderstand me over the last couple of years I have been "trying to make things happen." I have worked at several jobs as an assistant to others and as an IT professional but to my chagrin none of these opportunities have turned into anything concrete. As I write this post I again find myself unemployed. And please know that my dilemma is not around finding a job, because I can get jobs...I just can't seem to keep them. Hmmmmm....that's a post for another time.

So what's a praying and meditating woman to do at a time like this??

Let Go and Let God!!!

By letting go and letting God I mean that I must allow the Spirit of God within me to perform it's good and perfect work. God knows the desires of my heart and I have made my intent known to the Universe that I am willing to serve Spirit for the purpose of seeing the human race realize it's True Nature.

So maybe just maybe I might want to trust that God has heard my prayers and the recent "falling away" of things in my life and the change is in response to my requests.

I know that God is a force that supports each of us in creating the life we want regardless of what that life looks like (we will revisit that statement in another post) and since this is the Nature of God then I need not worry. My intent is life enhancing and God will support me in like manner.

I am being presented with an opportunity to expand my awareness of God and my own True Self through the choices I make. In the midst of what I am currently facing the choices I make and the actions I take will show me if I truly believe the very thing that I profess to others...


I will keep you all posted as I continue to seek my own inner guidance for my life.

In All Thy Getting Get Understanding


The other day while I was at my favorite coffee house (which by the way happens to be Starbucks) one of the guys who works there commented to me that often when he sees me I appear to be deep in thought as if I'm looking for something. I told him I was. So he took the bait and asked me "what are you looking for?". My response..."THE ANSWER".

As I gave my reply to his question more thought I became aware that "the answer" is something that man has been searching for since the beginning of his/her existence in physical form. Man (and please note that when I use the term "man" I am referring to the "human race" as a whole) has put a lot of time and energy in finding the answer and has achieved many great things in pursuit of finding it.

But what is "THE QUESTION" to which we seek an answer for? I would like to suggest that "the question" is different for each of us.

Each of us must create the question for our own selves. Having our own unique question is key to our ability to live a life of and on purpose. And YES I do believe that each of us has a unique purpose.

Having a question gives us a starting point from which we can begin to commune with our inner guidance so that we can begin to remember what we came here to do.

The purpose I speak of here is not one assigned to you by something or someone out there. Our purpose was self ascribed to us before we incarnated into this physical form and this life's journey is about discovering it and fulfilling it.

Your Inner Voice is your companion along your journey and is a "friend that sticks closer than a brother".

Your Inner Voice, which is your true self, desires to guide you along your discovery process and to the answer...which is your TRUTH.

What is your question that you will ask of it?

Blessings to you,

Awake To Your Innervoice


This is my first official blog entry at Your Inner Voice. The reason I have decided to create this blog is because I believe that there are others out there like me who are seeking to know something greater.

By something greater I mean...that "thing" in your heart that you know is calling you to live a more awakened and fulfilling life. It's always there drawing you to it and you realize that at some point in this life's journey you will do wise to "heed the call".

My desire is to inspire you to do all that you can to heed that call because I believe that when you do you will awaken to the greatest part of yourself...your TRUE Self!!!

Your True Self is that part of you which has it existence everywhere and as Dr. Wayne Dyer would here. This is the part of you that knows what your life's purpose is and is available to you in every moment to guide you into all Truth.

And when that awakening takes place your life will open up before you and you will experience all the peace, love and abundance that each human being desires to have but so often does not know how to receive.

So I hope you will join me on this journey as I awaken to my own True self and discover a life I truly love and am passionate about so that maybe you too might be inspired to do the same.

Know that I am your partner on the journey here for you every step of the way.

Blessings to You!!!
