All of our lives we take on so many beliefs and claim them to be a truth. The dictionary defines the word "belief" as "a mental representation of an attitude positively oriented towards the likelihood of something being true." We arrive at these beliefs from the repetitiveness of being told by many sources that this is THE truth until we take it on as our belief system.
Then one day we may have an experience that shakes the very foundation of a certain belief we may have held, record scratch!
All my life I believed that we were/are human beings here on earth to live, die and then be judged by a higher source to see if we past the test. WOW!! Boy, was I wrong, and gratefully so! A little over five years ago I looked into the eyes of a complete stranger and recognized him. I felt a shift in the core of my inner being. Something significant happened inside of me that told me at the soul level that I knew this man.
"We are not human beings in search of a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings immersed in a human experience." ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer
Yes!! My soul recognized his which meant that everything I have been taught or been told just seem to crumble in that very moment. How do you recognize somebody you just met if we only live one life and then die and go to Heaven or Hell? Then when he made his transition into the spirit world I was grief stricken which sent me into a spiritual awakening and confirmed my suspicions that we are far more than this physical body.
"Ever has it been that love knows not it's own depth. Until the hour of separation." ~Kahlil Green
This is what brings me to the second thing I KNOW for sure and that is "love" is the very essence of who we are and that love knows no boundaries of space and time. My Twin Soul started to communicate with me from the Other Side to let me know that not only are we eternal beings but love is eternal too. This is the most beautiful and liberating truth to step into and not because I was "told" it but because I "experienced" it first hand. It is the experience that will override any belief we may have held.
"We are all one, only egos, beliefs and fears separate us." ~Unknown
We are all one collective consciousness created by the "Creative Source of the Universe/God/Divine or whatever YOU choose to call it. The only things that keeps us from feeling separate from one another is our fears, ego and our beliefs. When we have a profound experience that debunks all that we have been taught then we are free from all the limitations that society puts on us or we put on ourselves. We are all connected to each other and love is who we are at the core. To "be" love, and to "share" that love with another is why we are here. To be a divine expression of the creator through these physical bodies. To find the god-self within and KNOW that we are eternal beings living out this human experience.
So yes, this blog is about a few things I KNOW to be true or am sure of. If you would like to read our story follow this link here. So much love to all of you as we move closer to the truth of who and what we REALLY are and not what we have read or been told/taught to believe. Blessings!

I always like to state that this is "my" truth that I have come to know through my experience. If this does not resonate with you then just dismiss it!
