*** The Meet the Spirit series introduces us to a spirit entity each week. These spirit entities bring forth a message for the audience. If you would like to get to know your personal spirit guides, please check up my spirit guide reading available through Etsy***
A spirit is coming through, munching on a donut. It is a cake donut with pink icing. The spirit is a younger woman, maybe in her early twenties. She has blonde hair pulled back into a ponytail and the ponytail is pulled through the back of a green baseball hat. She is a little overweight and wears a black t-shirt and jeans.
I ask this spirit for her name and she says we can call her Sarah.
I ask what message she has for us today and she says that we need to “taste” life. Don’t just shove life down your throat, instead take the time to savor each “bite”.
This is a great opportunity we have to incarnate and be here on earth. We need to enjoy ourselves. This includes enjoying the food we eat – but also just each moment we have. We need to go out and live our desires. I am remembering the words of “Ra” from “The Law of One” and how he talked about that the purpose of life is to follow our desires.
So often we are trying to suppress our desires because we are afraid – we are afraid of what others will think – what could possibly happen – afraid to take a risk – a chance – to get out there and do it – afraid to succeed – afraid to change our position in life.
But when we don’t follow our desires we are missing the greatest opportunity we have in life – to live.
Sarah is using the image of the donut now to remind me of how I am currently using this concept in my life. I have taken on the idea of following my desires in terms of what I eat – so literally eating that donut of life if that is what I desire. Since starting this “desire diet” I have actually lost seven pounds. Now I am not in any way overweight and actually have a pretty healthy relationship with my body – but the idea of desire has been appealing to me and I wanted to test this idea of actually paying attention to my desires and following through on them.
I have been surprised at the results. I have also learned a lot about myself. I have learned that I am usually not hungry for breakfast until abut 9:30 and then only want a snack. Sometimes I skip lunch and other times I want to eat. I have been eating less food – more sugar – and plenty of vegetables. It is an interesting journey.
So thank you, Sarah, for reminding us the importance of paying attention to and following our desires. May blessings be on you and yours.
