Seen my share of broken halos
Folded wings that used to fly
They’ve all gone wherever they go
Broken halos that used to shine
— Broken Halos, Chris Stapleton
Okay, so my fourteen-year-old son, Will, turned me onto this song.
And, I LOVE it.
The funny thing is that he played it for me but wouldn’t reveal the artist.
To my kids, doing so would be a rookie mistake.
And a flag on the play.
So they keep the artist a mystery (as if I can’t just google the lyrics) because they think that if I get access to the song then I’ll play it over and over, which of course makes them sick of it. And I can’t blame them for that.
So the clandestine music game continues. And of course, I easily locate the song anyway and secretly play it ad nauseam, because it’s usually inspiring me in some way.
And it’s really a good call by them as I sit here listening to this song on repeat, tapping into a vibration, and allowing words to flow through me.
So what’s my point here?
We are all actually angels with broken halos.
It’s true. Except the halos aren’t really broken. They have just been dismantled by us temporarily so that we can have a physical experience based on a belief system that says we are finite beings relegated to the whim of fate and lady luck and our ability to defend, control and manipulate our reality.
Ha! Nothing could be further from the truth.
We are the opposite of that.
We are infinite, omnipotent aspects of creation.
We are divine intelligence in a body learning through separation.
And, the only thing that is real in all of existence is LOVE. So there is never anything to fear. Ever. Believe that and so it will be.
But this experience we are having is the essence of creation itself.
As creators, we create the illusion of separation.
We pretend that we aren’t divine intelligence in a body expanding just so that we can know ourselves on a deeper level and from a different perspective.
All That Is, itself, never changes.
It is “ALL THAT IS” after all. Its everything. All-knowing, All-Powerful, All-encompassing. It’s the full kit. Nothing is left out.
And so, the only aspect of All That Is that can change so that we can expand is our perspective.
This is why we are here.
This is the game of expansion.
We are given the profound and audacious opportunity to believe that we are less than — that we are broken — just so we can know ourselves more deeply and fully.
We are now in the process of becoming our super human selves again.
But as with most virtual reality games, there is a point where you have had all the fun and explored all the angles of this perspective and it’s time to return to your true self.
And that’s exactly where we are at this point in time.
This is why we are seeing what appears to be such chaos both in the world and even personally.
We are in the process of birthing a new consciousness. And anyone familiar with it knows that the birthing process can be painful, confusing and sometimes messy.
But what we are seeing as chaos, actually has an intelligence below the surface, guiding us to exactly where we need to be. That’s just the nature of consciousness.
And so look beyond the perceived commotion and disruption to see us all forming a new, richer understanding of who are are and what it means to be human. We are in the process of making the turn and heading toward the 18th hole.
We are evolving.
We are going home.
And let me offer up some ideas about what that can mean to you.
- You are a Creator.
- There is no separation. The one is the all and the all is the one.
- What you put out is what you get back.
- All of your experience is created within your consciousness, and no one else has sovereignty over your creation, unless you relinquish it.
- All of life is happening through you and for you, so that you can expand your understanding of what it means to be uniquely you. If you don’t like your experience, change it through your beliefs, emotions, perspectives and inspired action.
- You are divinity — energy, light rooted in the vibration of love — in a body.
Joy and even Bliss is your natural state of being.
