George Floyd Is An Angel

George Floyd Is An Angel
Jun 05, 2020 by Renee Linnell
I watched only a few seconds of the George Floyd video and burst into tears, sobbing. And I asked out loud, “When does it stop? When does the fighting . . . and the violence . . .and the hatred stop?” And I suddenly knew: it stops when it stops inside of me. It stops when it stops inside each one of us individually.

The hatred stops when we stop hating parts of ourself, criticizing parts of ourself. The fighting stops when we stop fighting with life, when we stop wanting now to be different; when we stop fighting the aging process, or the traffic, or the weather. The violence stops when we stop violent thoughts like, I hate when I do that or, I hate people who (talk on speaker phone in public/show up late/fill in the blank . . . ), or even, I hate my thighs. 
 

Why People Believe The Media

Why People Believe The Media
May 16, 2020 by Renee Linnell
Pushing against those who see the world differently than I do feels like Hell. Sitting back and calmly understanding they are doing the best they can, and that their survival and safety fears are being massively triggered, puts me back into a vibration of love and nesltes me back into a mind state of Heaven.
 

Going Against The Norm

Going Against The Norm

There are more than seven billion of us and each one of us is unique, which means that each one of us has a different and unique viewpoint, which means that each one of us lives in a different reality. 

Smiles Spread Love, Not Illness

Smiles Spread Love, Not Illness
May 13, 2020 by Renee Linnell
Life is so short and so precious. Every day could be our day to go. That’s what makes each moment so spectacular. Dying is not tragic. It is the next step in our evolution. Not living our life is tragic. Hiding because we are afraid is tragic. Allowing the media to plant seeds of fear and hate in our mind is tragic.

Letting Go

Letting Go
May 12, 2020 by Renee Linnell
Letting go of friendships that no longer fit is not easy. We are born to love. We love being loving. And admitting to ourselves that a relationship has run its course is not easy. Thoughts of being disloyal appear. But, the truth is, we are not meant to be in relationship with everyone or for our entire lifespan. If we are doing the healing work to grow and evolve, we will outgrow people. And if we are mending ourselves after being broken, we will notice those we drew into our lives when we were broken no longer fit once we are whole. 

Time To Upgrade

Time To Upgrade
Apr 20, 2020 by Renee Linnell
Not one of us is getting through this period of time without looking at where we need to upgrade. And completing the upgrade is the only place where we will find relief. (The keys to finding where we need to do the work is where we get triggered, where we feel fear, and where we want to blame.)

Grand Awakening

Grand Awakening
Apr 03, 2020 by Renee Linnell
I used to think if everyone would stop trying to make the world a better place and stop fighting against things—because we create more of whatever we focus on—and just go home and cook nourishing foods, and spend quality time with loved ones, and read and nap and play in nature, and develop and nurture our own unique gifts, the world and humanity would heal itself. This, my loves, is what is happening right now. It is miraculous.

Speak Your Truth

Speak Your Truth
Apr 02, 2020 by Renee Linnell
This part in this poem really touched me today because we must be true to the deepest callings of our heart and we must speak our Truth. And we can tell it is Truth because it comes from deep love. It is not meant to hurt. Ever. And we have to trust that anything we do with love will help in some way . . . 

Singing

Singing

I woke up this morning and felt Mother Gaia singing. She is healing Herself right now. The almost complete stop in human activity is giving her a window to return to Well-Being. As I listened to Her sing, I could feel all the hearts of my human sisters and brothers singing, also. While many of us are still feeling fear and frustration on the surface, deep in our souls we Know a change has begun. 

The Divine Perfection In What Is

The Divine Perfection In What Is

I just saw how incredibly taken care of we are. How incredibly protected. 
 
We just got put on a huge, planet-wide, Time Out by Source. We all just got sent on a mandatory two-week meditation/introspection/health and wellness retreat. I mean, seriously. How miraculous is that?

Look For The Opportunities

Look For The Opportunities

I am feeling a very strong urge to keep writing to you, so I am following it. There is so much Light right now. As above, so below. Or, in this case: as below, so above. We live in a world of dichotomy so as dark as it gets, there is always that much Light to be accessed. It is a jump and it takes effort to find it, but once you tap into it you will feel it and you will soar.

Rise Above The Fear, We Need You

Rise Above The Fear, We Need You
Mar 13, 2020 by Renee Linnell
We all have a choice in every moment to turn towards light and love and faith and community and trust. Or to turn towards fear and isolation and condemnation. It is up to us in every moment to turn towards the light. This is where we have control. This is where we are powerful. And this is how we change the world.

You Are Safe

You Are Safe
Mar 12, 2020 by Renee Linnell
At the risk of making everyone mad at me*, I have something to say about the Coronavirus. Can we all please take ownership of our own minds? And our own bodies? I traveled up and down the East and West coasts giving interview after interview about The Burn Zone to people who said to me, over and over, “I could never be brainwashed, how does this happen?”

My loves, if you are terrified of getting some virus that the news tells you is going to kill you, you are brainwashed. If you watch the news every day and buy into the fear they are selling, you are allowing yourselves to be brainwashed.

Becoming Whole

Becoming Whole
Jan 30, 2020 by Renee Linnell
I dream of a day when we all let go, when we all “give up” and jump into the rushing Stream of Life, when we stop trying to be who we think we need to be and instead surrender to Who We Are. 

Rebelution

Don Juan, the teacher of Carlos Castaneda, says in The Journey to Ixtlan that men [women] of power treat every act as if it is their last. Because each of us never knows what moment we may die. So each act must be done as if it is the last. He says this is what makes these people magic. Sorcerers. This is what makes them have tremendous power. And I began thinking about how wonderful it would be to live life this way . . .

The Course in Miracles says that in every moment we have a choice between a grievance or a miracle. In every moment all we have to do is lift our gaze. In every single moment we get to choose: Do I want to live in Heaven, where anything is possible and miracles abound; or do I want to get lost in the mundane, and miss each moment’s wonderful/breathtaking/awesome display?

A Thought About Vulnerability

A Thought About Vulnerability
Oct 09, 2019 by Renee Linnell
"In my defenselessness my safety lies," says The Course in Miracles

I walk into my local spa and a golden retriever mix greets me. I have never seen her before. She approaches me, tail wagging back and forth, and then drops to the ground, rolls over, and offers me her tummy. I immediately respond: I drop to the floor as well, overcome with love for her, and I begin to stroke her belly and offer kind, loving, soothing words. I tell her how beautiful she is and how good. I tell her how much I love her. We are both in bliss. And we just met. Instant love. And I think of how vulnerable she is. How instinctively she knows she was born to give love and receive it. And how by dropping to the ground and offering her belly she immediately said, "Give me the best of yourself; I trust you to do it." 

A Return To Love

A Return To Love
Aug 10, 2019 by Renee Linnell
We are born to love. We love being loving. We thrive when we love. So, when we encounter anything that opens our heart wide, we want more and more and more of it. The fascinating thing, the thing we are not taught is this: it is our love flowing. It does not matter what the object of attention is. We choose to flow the love. This is the feeling we become addicted to. And, we have control over it. We can choose to flow this love anywhere and to anyone. And we need to learn to flow it to ourselves first. 

Giving Away Our Power

Giving Away Our Power
Jul 01, 2019 by Renee Linnell
There is all this talk about giving our power away. People say it all the time. “Don’t give your power away.” Or, “You gave your power away.” I’ve been saying it over and over as I travelled around doing my book tour: 
“I gave my power away when I was in the cult.” 
“Anytime you let anyone else tell you who you are, you hand them your power.”

So, I had another epiphany: The universe always delivers what I ask for. Always. Sometimes it just takes a while. Like years. Or it comes in a totally different form than what I imagine. But, I also just realized that when it takes longer than I want it to, or comes in a different form, it’s because it is being delivered in a delicious, fun, interesting, and amazing way.
