The Choices We Make
Insights From A Deeper Song
The Creative in me honors the Creative in you!
I have journeyed a lot lately to understand what I am to do in my “next”. And each time I am given many choices. I am standing on a point in time with man options open to me.
Eileen Cady, Founder of Findhorn in her book Opening Doors Within said, “Expect the best. Do not settle for second best.” So I stand on my point in time and choose the best.
What two or three things are most important to you at this point in time? If an idea like “money” comes up take a step further to see what you want money to secure for you – safety, health, adventure? If it is “health” begin to picture yourself in your natural state of wellness. Focus on what you want to attract, not how it is to be attracted.
Then do the work. I want my body to be stronger and straighter and I have specific choices to make and work to do to help it make that change.
I want to see clearly within and within. I’m doing better with seeing within. Not sure what to do about the physical change in “without.”
Take the steps you can and then get very creative about how you seek out the more elusive aspects of your choices.
We are each standing on one point in time. Our next step creates a new path. It takes us in the particular direction of our choice. There is no going back but there are new trails to follow.
Take a step and see what new vistas open up for you. Do you need to take another step in that direction or do you explore that side trail over there? Look at the view from where you stand now and see what is available to you. Then chose what step to take.
Where are you choosing to go next? What path do you follow?
DEEPER SONG AFFIRMATION
I pause to consider the possibilities of each choice before I take my next step.

MY DEEPER SONG THIS WEEK
We Are One With the Whole
An Exploration of the Unseen World
We are all one interactive vibrational energy, but we forget that when we become too immersed in our bodies. It takes some focused actions to cultivate our continuing awareness of ourselves as One energy – with everything.
Cara Lumen, spiritual philosopher and founder of the Deeper Song Community is a cosmic explorer who consciously travels into the unseen world to serve as a bridge to help us expand our relationship with the spiritual world. She shares what she learns and guides us to the next level so we can sing a deeper song.
In this episode we explore
We Are One With the Whole
To Sing a Deeper Song Consider:
I pulled out my paper calendar to look at the month that is unfolding and suddenly there were rainbows all over it. It was a sign, a sign of the month to come and its many blessings. I have several sun-catchers in m window and rainbows often dance across my room. But these rainbows were on the month that is unfolding. Blessing it. Holding open portals for me to go through.
What rainbows dance across your month? What do you do with them?
I had no idea the US was as split in half as it is. It feels like it is me against we. Not a good feeling.
I journeyed in my dismay and was shown that my job right not is to monitor my thoughts because our thoughts create our reality. Our most powerful change-maker is our thoughts.
I begin to visualize our world as healing, coming together for the highest good of all. Learning to be more compassionate, more inclusive All of is. Each of us.
I’m going to add more pauses in my day to simply breathe and be present and focus on our Oneness.
Change your thinking, change your life.
My body is making some changes as my hips organically realign and I realized how important our foundation is. As the foundation that is my hips changes, I can stand more upright. My body is remembering how I once stood.
What is the foundation you stand on now? Physically are you keeping your body strong? Spiritually are you exploring new paths? How are you changing, rearranging, strengthening your foundation to carry you forward?
HOW DO YOU ACCEPT ACKNOWLEDGMENTS?
Forty years ago in New York City in an est communication workshop, I was partnered with a young man I had never met before. We sat in chairs facing each other (as did the whole room) and took turns giving each other compliments. I felt myself energetically stopping each compliment before they even got to me. And that, of course, was the point of that exercise. How we stop comments. Is it because we don’t believe we desire them? Is it because we are shy? I began to watch how my friends did or did not accept a compliment. Most of us flunked.
Somewhere in m life in NYC , I began an acknowledgment journal. I wrote down what someone said, their name and the date. What I learned was what others saw in me that I did not.
I now keep acknowledgements I receive on my computer and periodically it feels important for me to go read them – to reassure myself I’m on the right track and to see what I am doing that is working for others.
Begin an acknowledgement page. This is not an ego thing it is an “I didn’t know that about thyself” thing.
Discover what you do not see in yourself. Then act on it.
DEEPER SONGS I HEARD THIS WEEK
OUR EVOLVING FUTURE
When it feels like your fate lies in the hands of others you have to believe three are enough aware people to keep the world on a positive track. I write this the day before the US election where the fate of our entire democracy hinges on how this election goes.
And I am one vote. And it has been cast.
Are there enough people who want to be unified again? Are there enough people who are compassionate enough to want to equal the playing field and help everyone reach a level of sustainability? Are there enough good people to correct our course?
So many new doors are opening to help us save the environment. We just have to take them. We have more power over this worldwide crisis that we fully grasp. Countries like Australia and New Zealand have the virus under control. There are examples of the steps to be taken. We just have to take them. As a whole country. As a whole world.
In this evolving world, we are to learn from each other. We are to listen and look and learn and follow those who are accomplishing what we want for our country. And that involves group consciousness.
Our role is to raise our own vibration. We do that with mindful intention and conscious choices. That builds a higher vibration of positivity and attracts others who are ready to heed the call to oneness, to a world-wide community that turns its attention toward healing – healing the planet, healing its inhabitants.
We must turn our gaze. We must focus on wholeness, on unanimity, or creating a world of equality. That is what we are changing in the here and now. We must heed the call. We must do the work. Here and now.
DEEPEN YOUR SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
Breath is an extremely powerful centering tool for your spiritual practice. Pause. Take a deep breath and let go. Feel yourself settling into a more cheered, tranquil place.
All because you paused to take a breath. Sprinkle mindful breaths throughout your day.
THE REFLECTING POOL
Sounds of my flute drift out of my open window.
Sounds of my flute drift out of my open window to move thought nature to the world.
Sounds of my flute drift out of my open window. To move thought nature to the world takes only a single breath.
– Cara Lumen
RETHINK OUR HERE AND NOW
The US is more divided than I knew. My eyesight needs me to make specific changes in what I offer and how I do it. My body is doing good things but odd things. I have some adjustments to make in the here and now.
Stop where you are and look around. How has it changed for you? What is working? What is not working? Make some plans and take some steps to experiment.
Begin with making room for the new. That means clearing some things out, letting go. Do that physically and mentally and emotionally. Let go of beliefs that turn out to be incorrect or uninformed. Let go of those that are so ingrained that you barely notice them. Look at every aspect of or life and make new choices.
Invite change into your life.
A DEEPER SONG
