Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche said, "One should think of oneself as pure and perfect and lacking nothing."
I know this in my heart to be true. I knew this early on and I also knew pretty early on I wanted to be myself. I also knew that I was awesome! This has shaped my life in huge ways.
I feel very fortunate to have lived this way. It certainly makes the journey different, in that it orients you INWARD instead of outward. I was listening, learning and wishing to discover and express who I was.
My essential investigations in life have centered upon two themes: identity and self-expression. They remain endlessly fascinating to me--as each are fundamental to aliveness and joy. I have pursued, learned, taught and supported others in transforming their lives through increased self-awareness and understanding and self-love. I have also applied this same passion and joy to self-expression and to learning to dissolve the many obstacles that come into play once we aim to live in the flow of full self-expression. We are meant to create in manifest reality the inspiration that we feel. Your heart's desires are directional and innately wise at pointing you toward a happy, easy, abundant life of wellbeing and love! The landscape of these areas of life eventually leads one to the big metaphysical, philosophical questions, cosmic questions, which are endless and profound. Living life in these domains gives me great joy.
By nature, I'm a translator of experience. A practical-explainer. I am sure it's part of why I chose to be born in the sign of Gemini--I love to articulate and communicate as a way to learn, to share what I experience and also how I experience it. I use communication in many ways--words, music, images and the silence or space within each of these--to reflect what I experience and especially what moves me--evolves my perspective, empowers me and expands my experience.
My most sacred call is to use my self-expression to amp up my own joy and then to share it and offer ways for you to explore the deeper currents within your own life and in doing so, to live with more confidence, clarity and joy.
In this vein, I write/blog; host events and retreats; teach workshops; offer readings; transmit energies from Archangel Michael; paint and draw; and hold community space through the Legion of Michael and the Facebook Community of Expect Wonderful.
May any and all of these be of benefit to you. May they make you smile. Echo your experience. Affirm the beauty of your being and give you boldness to live your own life out loud, on purpose with great confidence and a playful, easy feeling! Inspiring others toward happiness is my ultimate role here, which in essence means loving you as you are and encouraging you to be you! I feel you will see I live this way myself and I can vouch for the happiness it brings.
We were meant to be happy! So discovering the pathways to this while here on Earth, and remembering and reclaiming our power, is the first order of business for a happy human experience. Once we've returned to our innate flow and aliveness, we can turn our attention to self-expression and the reinvention of our planet to reflect new, more empowering paradigms.
Any "About Meredith" page would be incomplete without sharing that my relationship with Archangel Michael is unusual and special. Essential even, to my presence here. For more about my relationship to Archangel Michael and how this informs my life and the work I do through Expect Wonderful visit the Legion of Michael page.
If you'd like to see more about what I've done professionally before Expect Wonderful, my profile is available on LinkedIn.
Lastly, there's two other important things to know about me.
I avoid fields; I love to jump fences. I don't believe in rules, boundaries or limits. So you'll notice in life I cast a broad net around what I'm willing to encounter, experience and explore and I like the richness that comes from cross-pollinating my ideas.
I'm into substance and what's practical and really works, and with that in mind I KEEP UP. Life changes and evolves, new discoveries are made all the time and I am completely loyal to that which rings true and feels right, not consistency. So as life and perspective enlarges, I let go and move on. It's challenging to live this way, but it's also freeing! In this freedom to change we are spontaneously alive.
So you'll find here, a multidimensional being emanating into a human experience (just like you). A being devoted to cultivating the wholeness of my presence. A Bodhisattva seeking enlightenment and expansive embodied presence, for the benefit of all beings. Here for the duration and continually revising reality to reflect my own vision of the ideals of love, harmony, peace and light. Loving the conversation with those who resonate with these visions of hope and empowerment and thrilled daily, by my own continually expanding experience.
You know, in our "past" on Earth, there were many pathways in which we tended to explore spirituality through religion, or through removing ourselves from life in some way.
This is a old paradigm--the idea that spirituality is actually some thing that can be separate; everything is spiritual! We're living in a time in which the whole world is waking up to the innate spirituality, the Oneness, the interelatedness of everything.
Many of us are also beginning to live knowing our awareness creates reality and choosing to become the powerful creators we innately are. By living from our heart, opening to the fullness of our being, calling our mind into service of our ideals and being willing to BE in new ways, we are altering our civilization and the templates of our being.
Of course, we're receiving lots of cosmic support!
It's a wonderful time to be alive...a planetary treasure hunt, essentially, with each of us receiving clues and insights as we retrieve, remember and embody, the fullness of our being. Expect Wonderful!
With love and appreciation for all you are, and all you are creating and becoming!
