How Will You Tell YOUR Story? By Aixa Garcia 7/9/17
I saw this posted on the wall of the photography area on a cruise I recently took. The words stood out to me and I had to stop and take a picture of it. It made me think… How WILL I tell my story??? …
I have many answers and none at all. I have many stories and none at all as well. Life is constantly evolving, constantly changing and one never knows what tomorrow will bring. Will “I” tell my story or will someone else tell it for me? Will it be told on its own by my daily walk, my daily actions? ~ By what has gone by and what is yet to become? We tell it every day in our own way but what we live and what we reveal may not always be the same. What we express and what is interpreted is also not the same…you see, people only show what they want to show and others only see what they believe. We are quick to judge and criticize those which we believe are walking the wrong path and others do it towards us when they see us fall or when we’re simply “not ourselves”…we’re all guilty of doing it when we don’t understand, when we don’t know the struggle, the pain, the difficulties, the tests that one may be facing. There are many reasons why we do the things we do and we act the way we act and if others only knew those reasons, then they would understand. But the story is read before it’s told, before it fully unfolds. How can one guess an ending which hasn’t arrived? Even the characters who live it may not even understand, they’re creating their own scripts as days come. Too many “judge the book by its cover”, not knowing what is inside …what surprises we all find once we begin to read, to see, to truly see and read between the lines!!! The things that ARE, are not & the things that AREN’T , are!!! (words that came to me one day) Nothing is really as it seems to be…until it becomes what it truly must be. So the story can’t be told until it’s over, until the Master writer writes “The End”.
I started writing years ago. I was urged one night, led out of bed and guided to write…I watched my hand as it flowed through the pages and words appeared. Perhaps one day I’ll finish…perhaps one day someone will finish it for me. With each new day new wisdom is found, with every struggle, new strength is found, with each new obstacle, new faith is found…Life is lived in cycles until we “get it”…it’s all a process we must go through and whether others understand our walk or not, it doesn’t matter, what matters is that we come full circle, back to where we were created with Divine knowledge ~ knowledge which we somehow distanced ourselves from, trying to write a story “our way”, rather than allowing the Master writer do His thing, HIS way … nothing we would ever write could ever be as grand as that which has already been written for us ~ it’s all a matter of positioning ourselves on the right page, becoming the ink with which the Author tells OUR story…

“Center Yourself”

“Center Yourself”

~ by Aixa Garcia 5-21-17

 

Today something felt different… you know that feeling that something is about to happen, that something is about to change but you’re not quite sure what? That urge tugs at you and it won’t let go until you allow it. You see, we all have that inside of us ~ something that guides us, that lets us Know when to silence ourselves, to disconnect from the outside world and allow Spirit to speak and receive.

Life is full of noise, the loudness dims the voice of guidance. We are so engulfed in every day occurrences that we overlook what is trying to be shown to us. Maybe unconsciously we avoid even knowing, for if we remain ignorant, we have an excuse…hmmm. We search for answers but turn to all the wrong sources ~ we find distractions, ways to escape our reality, believing that in such things happiness is found… maybe temporarily…the fakeness of those smiles, the poses just to be seen, the joy one tries to project but at the end of the day, only tears hit those pillows, as the empty soul reminds you that you tried too hard (worse are those who can’t even cry, those who aren’t even aware)… but those with discernment can see through a forced smile ~ nothing speaks louder than our eyes ~ no matter how beautifully they are masked, as paint does wonders but the master artist sees all flaws, sees beyond. There is nothing wrong with being raw, to show emotion or true life lessons, as those are what make us stronger, that teach us character and take us to that higher level ~ usually not til we hit the ground and some of us are too proud to show that side. That’s not to say one must yell it at the top of our lungs in every detail to just anyone but to pretend to be what one is not, just to make others think we’re at a different level, well… one only fools oneself. So many are focusing on all the wrong things and are trying to force or manipulate things into happening rather than allowing them to flow. Yes, we must do our part but we must also center ourselves into a position of openness and allowance.

Sometimes we pray wrong, we pray for what we want, not for what is best for us ~ what is intended for us. Yes, we have to ask and believe in order to receive but are we asking according to God’s will? According to what our Higher Source has planned for us? Sometimes we think we want something and just go out and try to force it into being when all we had to do was ask according to God’s will and center ourselves allowing ALL to flow to us.

We always hear the saying, “go with the flow” but do we know it’s meaning? ( = to be relaxed and accept a situation, rather than trying to alter or control it. ) Hmmmmm, can we do that? I know I haven’t been able to always do it… I know the feelings all too well from life’s “lessons”, this or that situation, sometimes things beyond our control (others not) yet we try, how we try but all things will be the way they are supposed to be for the time that it must, no matter how we try to change them. And after we try with no avail, we realize that some things belong to a Higher Power.

And so it takes me back to centering myself, releasing myself from it all and simply allowing it. Opening myself up to receiving what the Universe has for me, what God has planned (which is greater than anything I could ever dream of) When we center ourselves in love, One with God/Divinity/The Universe, we begin a shift, we give permission for blessings to be poured upon us, we are saying… “Here I am, your servant, do what you want with me, I Believe and I am open to receive, ALL that is mine” with an open heart & one of gratitude, we give thanks for what shall come, what already belongs to us, without forcing, without manipulations… THEN things begin to happen, naturally, effortlessly, we go with the flow and the flow inundates us with everyday miracles ~ doors begin to open, opportunities arise, dreams become reality…our lives change in ways that we never had imagined ~ you see we are too small to conceive, achieve or receive ALL that our God has planned for us unless we detach from the mundane things we have believed will bring us happiness and simply center ourselves!!!

So that feeling today??? … not quite sure what is about to happen but I’m centering myself …open to receive…

The Path Is Clear

” The Path Is Clear “                 ~ by Aixa Garcia 8-20-13 (an older article)

~ Though the winds will blow and the Earth shall shake, or my mind is troubled & my heart be wounded…my faith shall not be broken. I know that I know that it ALL has purpose.Though my eyes can’t see what is right before me, my Spirit whispers ever so softly…”Fear not, the path is clear…simply walk” 

I wrote those words years ago and they somehow still speak to me. So many times we find ourselves in situations & circumstances, that make us think. There are times when we have no control over them, there are others where we do. There are times when we make them out to be so much more than they really are and others where we just ignore it all together. I have come to realize, out of “going through”, that everything has purpose. We always hear that being said, that everything happens for a reason and it’s so difficult to understand at the time you are faced with whatever it is you’re facing. But it’s not until time passes by that we are able to fully understand the reasons why. In everything a lesson is learned…in EVERYTHING! It’s so easy to tell someone, don’t worry, let it go, wait & see, when our human nature is to want what we want, right now! Patience is a virtue they say ~ how many of us possess it? Anxiety creeps in & then we take things into our own hands, wanting to change things that need to be changed with time, if at all. Thinking we know what’s best for us, or not even thinking at all, we create our own dilemmas, which wouldn’t be so, had we just waited on Divine timing. ALL has it’s time and it’s purpose and all WILL be the way it must ~ in the end, we end up exactly where we’re supposed to be, IF we allow it to be so. Too many resist it though; the nudging, the signs, the guidance and miss life as it was intended to be altogether… never manifesting their true potential, never tapping into all their gifts and talents, never satisfying that yearning inside to live this life to the fullest without restrictions, without regrets. We oftentimes overanalyze things or maybe worse, not even analyze them at all, our minds work overtime or not at all…finding that perfect balance where we can say “it is what it is & will be what it’s meant to be” and just be open to allow it all to flow into it’s proper place at it’s proper time…well, sometimes near impossible because WE think we know what we’re doing, WE take control and that’s when things go wrong, that’s when fear comes in. Sometimes we just want to know the answers, NOW! But what would we do, if we knew??? What could we do differently?  “The unknown is unknown for a reason ~ and the reasons will not be understood. The things that make sense to the human race are not those that are of any concern. The things that don’t…now THOSE are the ones that have all the power and only in it’s timing, will they all be revealed” (Those words came to me not long ago ~ Decipher if you can)

Sometimes we are given gifts that can feel like curses if one steps out of Spirit and drifts off into self. It’s so easy to lose ourselves, to lose our way when we lose touch of the Spirit that guides and try to walk this path on our own by following our human feelings. And although we are given hints and glimpses into the future, we cannot get there until we’re ready. ~ “Do not rush to get to the place that has not arrived. Let it arrive and you will get there” …more words that came to me which are making sense now. And as I read the words that were given long ago (the ones I started this note with) … so many things are coming together, and so I walk confidently, releasing all my fears because I’m being guided, I’m being watched over and as long as I allow it, I will never walk blindly or alone. Although I can not see what my next step is, the path is clear & it will arrive and  when it does, then I’ll be there.  And so will YOU my friend, so will YOU!!!

From my heart to yours,

~Aixa~
