Inspired = 'In-Spirit'
"When you look at the word 'Inspired' and break it down, it literally means 'in-spirit'"
- Dr. Wayne Dyer
Hello, my friends in Oneness,
A few hours ago I received a message on Instagram from a friend and fellow Oneness advocate who was asking if I wanted to take part in his latest venture to share our common message of Oneness. Of course, I responded with a resounding 'YES!', but I immediately noticed the change in my energy. I was instantly excited as my day just took on a whole new direction. I raced into the kitchen to tell Andrea, as she was just as excited and happy for me. So, what was this new energy, this different vibration that had immediately taken over my day?
I was INSPIRED!
I'm sure, or at least I hope, that you've had a similar experience at some point in your life when you get that instant lift of excitement and energy that literally transcends time. It's such a magnificent moment that not only lifts us vibrationally but feels so very natural and organic in doing so. There is definitely something magical, or mystical going on when we truly become inspired. Getting back to the quote from my guru, Dr. Wayne Dyer, he takes it beyond the mystical to the metaphysical. This is where being inspired becomes being 'in-spirit'. Being one with our spirit, our soul, our source, our higher self, whatever you'd like to call it. This is why the feeling is so euphoric, yet perfectly natural because at that moment we are exhibiting Oneness at its core. We are now experiencing one aspect of what it's like to live in Heaven while on Earth. There is no mistaking that connection that feels so right and transcends time. Imagine if we could harness that connection and live from that premise on a daily basis, or as often as possible.
To be inspired is great, but to inspire is incredible!
Yes, being inspired, as I've noted and as you've hopefully experienced, is great, but that may not come as often as we'd like, or prefer. With that comes the challenge of being receptive so as to not miss any opportunities to become inspired. You have to maintain a sense of allowance within your days to truly stay receptive. By that, I mean to allow life and higher vibrational energies to flow to and through you. This is how we remain receptive to inspiration in any and all forms. But there is another way to reap the benefits of being inspired my friends, and that is simply to inspire someone else! Have you ever had the experience of inspiring someone? Where he or she actually responds to something you said to them, or done for them, with the words: "Hey, thank you! You really inspired me". I can personally attest to the feeling, and let me say that it is just as euphoric and natural as being inspired, if not more. Because as we've come to know by now, this life is not about receiving, it's all about what we give. And to inspire someone in any capacity is as great a gift as there is. So, as we spend our days remaining receptive to life's energies and opportunities to become inspired, never pass on the opportunity to inspire someone else, and give them that joyous, and incredible feeling.

Here's a tough question I actually hate to ask because it sounds a little like an imposition, but I will. Are you inspired by what you do? Regardless if it's your job or an advocation, are you inspired by it? It's not a bad thing if you're not, I just want you to ramp up the receptivity, because your inspiration is energy, and it's out there just waiting for you to align with it. And if you are inspired by what you do, that's fantastic because your inspiration has definitely inspired others whether you realize it or not. Throughout my life, I have been blessed to be inspired by my continued work as a musician, singer-songwriter, and messenger of Oneness. I have had individuals throughout the years tell me personally that I have inspired them which are moments I will always treasure. But if I have not heard such words, I would still be doing what I do because it inspires me, and that is how I know I am staying connected to my source. This is why being inspired, receiving inspiration, and inspiring others is so very important in our lives. Being inspired truly does mean being 'In-Spirit'. It's all about the energy, the soul, THE CONNECTION!
And before I sign off, getting back to the new venture I mentioned in the first paragraph. I will proudly be sharing all of the details as soon as they become available. Stay tuned!
And one final thought about inspiring, here's a vlog of mine about being 'Just Love',
I hope it inspires you!
