As I awaken spiritually, I've come to observe that many people have misconceptions about what equality in a relationship is. Some think equality means matching every little thing that one gives another such as the expectation that if one puts a quarter in a shared jar, the other is expected to put a quarter in that same jar, for example. When both place their quarters in the jar, the perception is both are being equal. This is an unrealistic expectation where relationships are concerned. This is not what is meant by equality. In reality, equality in a relationship means balance. A balance of energy exchange and effort that is meaningful for both parties involved.
So, how do we get to a point of balance in a relationship?
It begins with the self first. It's about finding your own sense of value and worthiness, within yourself, and knowing what that is and being able to communicate it to your partner. When we understand who we are we have a sense of our own worth and therefore, anything our partner (who also knows their value and who they really are) gives has meaning for the good of the relationship. It's as if you stand in your true self saying, "this is who I am and this is what I offer" and then authentically BEING what you offer. It's a place of meeting toe-to-toe and eye-to-eye. This is balance.
No longer will it work to seek for love that is so unapologetically contrived in our society. True love exists in the time and space of being who we really are and the only way we are actively being who we really are is when we are standing in the presence of ourselves - because being in the present moment is being in a space of love.
It is the only way true love can be expressed for when we are standing in presence, love will use us to experience itself. Deep? I know, but it's true.
Now, more than ever, we are encouraged to let go of anything we believe to be true and just be present. Meaning, in allowing life to live you, life will become much easier because in each moment, we are reborn and we tune in to a very enlightened state of be-ing.
Being who you really are (love) is a constant stripping away of the beliefs of what you think you are. Think about it.
Wishing you many blessings as you practice presence,

I began this article over a month ago as I wanted to bring insight into this year 2018. With many shifts and changes in my own life, I had to defer to other life events and I find it quite prolific that I'm able to finish it on the first full moon of March, my birthday month.
With that said, it is my current belief that my sun sign, Pisces, is an energy that embodies and enfolds the spirit of all zodiac signs on some level. There are messages coming through me that have been accompanying me on this journey. What is coming through is a foreshadowing and that which has supported us in our journey...shifts and growth up to now. Spirit acknowledges us and the place in which we now stand. I am in deep gratitude that you have been with me on this journey I've been on while conversing with many of you.
As I journey into and through 2018 there is more gratitude for each and every one of you for the courage, support, patience you've been sending me.
Many of us have been going so very deep into our intrinsic natures as we travel on the soul level. 2018, as I understand it, will be about the very deep acknowledgment of ourselves - of our be-ing and of the way in which each of us stands on this planet.
As spirit beings, having come through our transitions, shifts and changes - as we walk this year we will be in a new state of being as we have been completely transformed using all that has become available to us through our shifts and changes within.
As we continue to transition in 2018 it is no surprise there's indication of a new life. Many of you stand, reborn, having acquired new visions, new truths - we arise. I cannot think of a more beautiful and more pertinent passage for all who have ascended and are being received by our own spirits.
We are movers of energy and many of us are in forward motion. We have a new awareness and a new set-point....a new beginning. In other words, we either have or are re-birthing ourselves.
Our shifts and changes guided us deeply into this new foundation for 2018. We now hold the abundance of that which arises from our hearts in order to be able to determine our next steps in our 2018 journey and we will choose our own pathway. With this type of clarity of heart-vision, there's dedication as we walk and continue to choose on a day-to-day basis...we will be able to step deeper into those parts of ourselves and feel the devotion to our true-selves journey.
We will be taken, having transitioned, to a new set-point. We will experience the ability to use our new skill-sets and states of being that we downloaded and acquired through real experience. We will be able to reach the destiny of the melding of our yin-yang energy, our male/female aspects, which,through a mystical series of events, were able to meld these two together, after going through extremely difficult periods of opposition to this union.
Both yin and yang have ascension stories into the next realms of our journey.
With that said, the experiences that have caused us to be separate, in whatever way we have experienced it, we will be able to meld and ascend into the next realm of the journey. We are now able to allow this new melded energy to move us forward as we walk.
For the next part of our journey (having gone through the difficulties and opposition) we have reached a very mystically informed life that is built upon the devotion of our hearts. We either have or will come to the place of activating this part of our being, arising through the fire into the commitment to our destiny.
As we move forward, there may be others standing in our way of this melding of yin yang and during this walk into this merging to this new set-point. We have learned how to remove the obstacles by using our ability in non-violent ways. We have come into this place of knowledge. We will be encapsulating that which attempts to thwart our energy.
We each have both the male and female energy within and available to us to bring our ability to create big change and supersede obstacles. There's been a profound mystical change.
This year, having arrived, we are able to use our own mystical abilities to move forward to what's promised on this new plane of existence.
Many are questioning, "what am I to do?" "Why am I here?" "I don't know what to do to move forward." The answer is that we are already doing it. If you have personal goals that you are striving to achieve, of course you want to continue moving in that direction. But always give yourself credit that you are a being in the process of creation through the creation and experience of your own journey. You are enough.
As things are unfolding and to help you understand the reality of that which you've been through and have felt in your hearts, it is the soul journey that has been your bridge to removing the obstacles to the soul journey you are meant to have.
Humanity has been slumbering but now there's an awakening. The awakening process deepens as your soul arises and goes through the portal of the mystical realm walking to the sacred of all creation. What a beautiful creation you are.
