This morning I rinsed my blueberry-green-smoothie container out in the sink. Like always, the bright red-purple residue turned a deep navy blue when the water hit it. Why? Why do blueberries always do that?
“Why?” has been a perennial question of mine since I was a child. I would always engage in dialog with spirit, asking very serious and deep questions. At eleven years of age I was asking, “God, why do we have so many religions? Why are we so different and complex? Why do we treat others the way we do? Why can’t everyone see the world as beautiful? Why can’t we all get along?” As I matured, my questions evolved, as did the answers I received. My infinite quest to understand the universe and answer the why is as infinite as the universe itself.
Why is a very important question. It is at the source of everything we do. Why is more important than the who, what, when, and where. Why taps into values, creates motivation, aligns intention, and directs conscious choice. The Why of conscious choice fuels our actions, relationships, communications, vocation, joy and meaning in life. If we’re not asking and answering the Why, we likely are on autopilot, cruising through life mindlessly without activating our highest potential and the true essence of our nature.
The Why that fuels my passion lies in the process of insight and discovery. As a young mystic that woke after near death experience at the age of four, I experienced an expanded sense of knowing and a different way of seeing the world. I became a young pioneer explorer, determined to find, or create, a bridge to connect the dimensions. Why can’t everyone on earth experience the spirit realm like I did? Why don’t we all develop intimate connection, authentic expression, healing compassion, and clear guidance and intuition? If we could see through the lens of our Soul, instead of our fragmented ego, we might actualize peace, experience our wholeness, and discover heaven on earth. Instead, we have been trapped in boxes of fear and separation, perpetuating faulty beliefs, and searching outside of ourselves to be fixed, filled and happy. Well, no more. We are waking to the path of love and igniting our hearts in sacred communion.
That’s my Why.
My Why is a passion is to assist others to discover their peace and wholeness; to remember their guidance and intuition; to develop their co-creative power and unique, individual genius. My Why is to use my visionary gifts, training, creativity and experience to co-mentor others to see the world through the lens of the soul; to experience themselves as fully connected and whole. My Why is to generously share what has been given to me, express the soul in every moment, and serve the greater good of the whole. Whether I’m serving individuals, groups or audiences to bring spirit and consciousness to life, I am serving the whole. Herein lies my joy and fullest expression.
What is your Why? Are you expressing what is at the core of your essential self? Does your Why wake you up every morning and fuel your day with passion? If not, it may be time to ask, “Why?”
