I just returned from a weeklong retreat at beautiful Omega Institute in New York. The red, yellow and orange leaves on the trees glistened as the rain came down, renewing the earth with the freshness of life. I too, feel washed clean and nourished by the autumn rain and crispness in the air. I attended two programs. The first was with psychic healer, John of God, and 1,000 fellow participants.  Next, I was with Pema Chodron, a Buddhist Nun and 550 other eager students. My favorite teaching from the entire week is from Pema. At the end of one of her long talks, she stood up, draped in her burgundy robes, clasped her tiny hands together and looked lovingly at the audience with a little smile on her humble face. She spoke with eagerness, as though she really wanted to emphasize this point, “As long as you think of things in your lives as obstacles, then they we will be. But as long as you think of things in your lives as the pathway, then they are no longer obstacles.”  She was referring to her discourse on opening to what life brings and becoming friends with your mind. I learned a lot about opening wide, and simply being. Just as the fall trees drop their leaves and become barren awaiting the buds of spring, I too entered the stillness of life and befriended all extraneous thoughts, words and actions to dwell in the root of my being in a place of acceptance and non-resistance.

Most of the time, I am very happy and content. Occasionally though, a vague feeling of sadness creeps in and I try to rid myself of it through meditation, prayer, exercise and service to others. However, when those methods don’t work, I remember to consider if there are any losses that I have not grieved fully enough. Sure enough, I usually have stuffed some unwanted goodbyes under the rug and not dealt with the underlying feeling of abandonment or grief. This week as I felt into my grief, I realized that in this last year, I said goodbye to my mother as she transitioned. Five of my close friends moved away from me off the island of Maui. Another dear friend is facing her death soon. Instead of avoiding the sadness, I let myself cry and open my heart to the energy of grief moving through my body. As I sobbed, I felt myself becoming smaller and smaller until memories of being alone as an infant in an incubator for five weeks, flashed through my mind. I revisited that awful feeling of loneliness. How horrifying it was to have left the comfort of the oneness of existence before birth, and then be isolated from human contact. My perspective then changed, and I was compassionately looking at that little baby from my Higher Self. In the next moment, there was a loving guardian angel standing by my incubator singing to me. I immediately felt the lost baby inside me quiet down. I was reminded that separation is a part of life and I chose to be here on Earth to fully experience human love and human loss. This deeper childhood grief was triggered to remind me to connect more fully with the Presence of the Divine and the invisible angelic realms which surround me now, and will never abandon me.

It’s time for school again. Here on Maui, the children go back to school in August and the start of a new cycle of learning begins again. Young students know they will be learning new material and they don’t fight it. At this time of year, I pause and reflect on what new skills, lessons and abilities I am learning. As an adult, I don’t pass from grade to grade or take exams the way students in school do. And neither do most of my adult friends. So how can we know we are still expanding ourselves and developing new skills? It’s easy to become complacent and just settle for what “is,” rather than reaching beyond our limitations and challenges. I catch myself resisting change, like upgrading my phone software for fear of having to learn a new operating system and fumbling in the process. How would it be if I got excited about the new features and technology and took it upon myself to study them and master them? This courage to learn new things is how I grow, to reach beyond my known world and step boldly into uncharted territory. Perhaps you have been considering a new learning adventure: dance lessons, a new language or new computer skills. Whatever it is, I encourage you to be like children, open yourself to learning and let yourself grow!

July is a special month to me because it is my birth month. Since my birthday is on the 5th of July, I have traditionally welcomed the occasion in with watching fireworks the night before. The 4th of July is recognized as a celebration of freedom. With this in mind, the dazzling glow of the fireworks display summons me to be free to be my most brilliant, colorful self and sparkle like a firecracker. Firecrackers light up the sky and bring beauty into the still of night. Fireworks are usually fairly short in duration but very intense in presentation. They command the audience to pay attention to the moment with their splendor! My birthday wish this year is to be as bold as the fireworks and as receptive as the night sky.

Aloha from sunny Maui! I am feeling especially grateful today to be alive! Summertime always awakens in me the desire to jump in the ocean, take off on an adventure or sit outside beneath the Heavens filled with stars. My childhood memories of camping and hiking come flooding back to me every summer. The crackle of the campfire and the earthy smell of dirt paths live on in my memory. Why are these memories so clear? I believe it’s because as a child I was fully alive in the present moment. My mind was unfettered by adult agendas, rules and biases. I was spontaneous and free! My intuition and imagination were fired because my senses were awake and my mind was not running the show. As an adult, I understand the importance of allowing my inner child to flourish. Nurturing a healthy inner child profoundly affects my Intuition. My purest, intuitive, childlike self is the source of my deepest knowing.Today, opening to the present moment with all of my senses clears the way for my highest self to communicate with me. So bring on the summer! It is the season of joy for the inner child!
