I need guidance. I could do it all on my own, however, I’ve tried that approach and well, let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.
I know I need guidance. So I’ve chosen to remember my spiritual umbilical cord…
An umbilical cord sustains life. I am sustained by the Love of God.
An umbilical cord delivers nutrients. I am fed by the Love of God.
An umbilical cord carries away waste. I am cleansed, cleared and made holy by the Love of God.
An umbilical cord is long and flexible. Any way I turn, and no matter how far I stray, God’s guidance is right here, attached to my belly.
The beauty of the spiritual umbilical cord is that it’s never severed, nor could it be. Even if we choose not to draw on the life-sustaining, life-nurturing, cleansing Love of God, it is always at our disposal, right here, waiting for us to simply turn in and tap in.
We’ve never been cut off.
Some of us don’t know this, so we’re still screaming frantically like a newborn who’s just been expelled from its warm, cozy den of several months into a strikingly cold and brightly lit world, mad as hell that things can’t still be the way they’ve been, not realizing that the sudden thrust into a new level of living–and the temporary pain that accompanies the move–is beneficial and the most natural thing in the world.
It’s natural to grow, to be sustained in a nurturing environment and then to be uncomfortably pushed by the Universe out of our cozy little dens.
Life pushes onward and upward. The same life that pushed you out of the womb is now pushing you onward and upward. When you are in pain, treat it as birth pangs, which descend upon both the mother and the baby being birthed.
We can have growth and birth without pain, but that’s a lesson many of us haven’t yet fully mastered.
For now, turn in and tap in to that beautiful spiritual umbilical cord that’s still in place, pulsing with life-sustaining Love.
Be very blessed today,
