If you prefer and audio version of this blog post:
I was just listening to a FB live with Anita Moorjani, author of “Dying to Be ME” and she stated that if you are still here, as in alive on earth, it means that there are still gifts waiting for you.
I thought this was beautiful and true! This is so inspiring to hear. I am learning everyday that we need to be open to the gifts. We need to be open to our own gifts and to allow them to flow through us so that we can share our gifts with the world.
There are also gifts for us and we need to be able to receive them. There are gifts of beauty, kindness, Love, sensation, wonder, art, creation, JOY and more! Gifts, gifts everywhere!
Go ahead, open your gifts and receive your gifts. 🙂
What is Greatness? It is what you are! It is your essence. It is what you are made of. We all are, we’ve just forgotten.
In Anita Moorjani’s book “Dying to Be ME”, she writes about her near death experience and what happened when she became aware of a new level of truth.
“I discovered that since I’d realized who I really was and understood the magnificence of my true self, if I chose to go back to life, my body would heal rapidly – not in months or weeks, but in days! I knew that the doctors wouldn’t be able to find a trace of cancer if I chose to go back into my body!
How can that be? i was astounded by this revelation, and wanted to understand why.
It was then that I understood that my body is only a reflection of my internal state. If my inner self were aware of its greatness and connection with All-that-is, my body would soon reflect that and heal rapidly”.
Anita did return to her body and completely recovered from end stage lymphoma. She now travels the world and shares her message which is both inspiring and enlightening. In fact, her book “Dying to Be ME”, is one of my all time favorites and I recommend it constantly.
What about YOU? Are you disconnected from your Greatness? In your lifetime, have you slipped away from that divine, beautiful soul that entered this plane of existence absolutely perfect as you were/are? Have you forgotten this?
I hope this brief blog post helps to remind you of this truth and I send you nothing but Blessings and Love, hoping that you are feeling it right through these words. 🙂

I spent some time today listening to an interview by Rick Archer from The Buddah at the Gas Pump. He was interviewing one of my most favorite authors, Anita Moorjani. I absolutely love Anita’s story about her near death experience and the wonderful insight she gleaned from that experience.
I was once again reminded of the importance of listening to the pull of our hearts when making decisions in life. I am an advocate of doing whatever I can to live more fearlessly and in joy so listening to my heart and it’s calling, resonates with me deeply. When we listen with heads, we tend to lead with fear. The fear of what might happen, or not happen, what we have or do not have, consequences, and on it goes.
When we listen to the pull of our hearts we are dancing with our soul and our inner callings and we are listening with passion and with purpose. An easy way to do this is to use the ‘Lift or Drop’ question. When you ask your internal self a question, or you think about an idea, or of a potential course of action, does your heart lift and rise or does it drop? This is an amazingly easy way to check in with your soul.
When we listen to our heads and our egos become engaged, it really can become a battlefield that often leads nowhere or to more fear. By listening and making decisions from our heart space, our true essence leads the way and we can then become the grandest versions of our authentic selves!
My wish for everyone is that you listen to your hearts, lead with love, and live in joy.
