Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #304

I’m grateful for the symbolic meanings of the tufted titmouse.Tap, tap, tap, it’s time. My little friend let’s me know that today is the day I share the experiences I’ve had with this adorable creature. Recently, my partner put a bird feeder outside of my window. When I got it, I was hoping to attract the cardinals, blue jays, and red-winged blackbirds. We put out a protected bird feeder for the little birds too, but I had no idea what I was in store for. In yesterday’s post, I mentioned a couple of birds that will actual tap on my window to get me to pay attention, this one is one of those birds.

This is the one that tapped on my window right before I wrote this piece.

One day, I sat watching the feeder and this little grey bird shows up with the cutest little tuft that I have ever seen. I’m fascinated! At the time, I had already started writing my symbolic meanings segment of the series. So, of course I looked up this adorable bird. The first thing I discovered is that it was a tufted titmouse. Then, I looked up the symbolic meaning and this is what I read: 

The Tufted Titmouse is a message that you may think that your contributions or abilities are mere, ‘gifts’ but they are impactful and empowering to so many that you may not yet be aware of. You spread hope and indemnify spiritual illnesses. Sometimes without even trying. You make a difference.

I LOVE that.  My heart sang and I felt aligned with the highest good in that moment, which is one of the indications when I know a message is meant for me. As if the visit from this little messenger wasn’t enough, now he/she shows up and knocks on my window if I’m not paying attention. I pay close attention to what I’m doing and thinking when I hear that knock now. The little tufted titmouse reminds me that I’m doing what I’m meant to do and loving every second of it.

What I had forgotten about is that I’ve seen this bird before. I was telling my friend the story about my little visitor and she reminded me that we saw them when we went on our writing trip in the summer of 2020. I start looking through the pictures, and sure enough, I see the tufted titmouse. What is interesting is that it wasn’t long after the trip that I started writing the Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace series. It was being in the energy of love, abundance, and peace up there that made me want to commit to doing the work so that I could feel it daily without having to get away to connect and align. It was 2020, I knew I needed all the help I could get. Seeing the symbolic meanings not only helped me to connect to even more to what I’m doing right now, but finding that second piece out helped me connect more to the journey that brought me to where I am right now. The whole idea brings me so much peace—tears are welling up in my eyes.

Today, I commit to embracing the symbolic meanings of the tufted titmouse. I’m blessed to have the reminder knocking at my window. I take those kind of signs to heart. Living from a loving place is my calling. I love finding knew and creative ways to align my energy with love, abundance, and peace daily as you can see if you’ve been following along. The tufted titmouse is my reminder to stay the course.

I’m here doing what I do for a reason. My journey has not been an easy one, but every experience has helped me to be able to connect with the people who are drawn to my work and/or me as a person. I show up, just like the this little tufted titmouse did for me this morning. Today, I will continue to make sure I keep showing up! If you are here reading this piece, you are reading this for a reason, but only you can know what that reason is. Go within, consider this the tufted titmouse knocking at your window. We are all making a difference in this world. Every choice we make is helping the world to align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation. The questions I ask myself are:

  • What are my gifts I can offer the world?
  • How do I keep my gifts aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace?
  • What is my daily work to stay aligned with the change I want to create today?
  • What energy am I projecting in this moment? How do I amplify the love and embrace the fear to be able to move through it?
  • How am I empowering myself today?

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #106

I’m grateful to live with purpose. I know answering what my WHY is helped me to navigate my life in a way that I was never able to do before. Many of my vision boards are focused on my inner purpose rather than material things. My largest vision board now hangs on the wall behind my desk. I look at it when I’m looking for inspiration writing and/or preparing seminars. I found that having a clear vision of how I want to live internally, helps me to make choices to serve the better good externally. Hence, my daily aligning with love, abundance, and peace helps me align to serve others from the most authentic place I can.

We are in some very trying times, what inner life are you living? How we live our inner life projects out. When we align our inner life and our outer life, we can soar no matter what chaos is going on around us. Finding my purpose didn’t come in the easy times, it took me going through the mud and getting dirty. There were a series of traumas that led me to where I am today. What drives us to our purpose can be very ugly. It could be the worst thing that has ever happened to us that can take us on the most transformative journey. Living with purpose is a light in the dark days. It keeps me moving forward in the most beautiful ways.

Today, I commit to serving my purpose. We can serve our purpose in so many ways without ever having to leave the house. First, it’s important to be clear. Back in January 2020, I wrote a piece called, “Rachael Wolff: Here’s My Why“. It’s a piece I look back to and check in with myself to make sure my thoughts, beliefs, actions, and reactions are aligning with my why. I also make sure I have a clear vision on the place I want to lead my life from. I look to one of my vision boards to help me get a clear view. If you don’t have a clear vision of what you want your inner world to look like, I suggest making a Self-Worth Collage (click to see examples)/ vision board. Plus, making these really does help during challenging times. When we get clear, it becomes much easier to see our direction. Part of me living my purpose is living from a loving place. That means doing the work daily and serving myself and others from that place on a daily basis. Help show up for yourself and others in the best light possible. When we do the work, the blessings of abundance flow into our lives from all different directions. It’s amazing how the process works.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Revealing Our Wings of Purpose through Love

We are all full of life, love, and beautiful colors. Each of us are given a set of wings. Sometimes, we struggle to find their purpose so we start to cover them up and weigh them down with our fears until the point we forget we even have them. 

Today, I commit to living with purpose.  There are so many misunderstandings in the world, and we can choose to be apart of them weighing our wings down, or we can open our minds and ask more questions. By doing this we give our wings power.

We don’t have to jump on bandwagons of hate. We can choose to see through love’s eyes and find meaning in the chaos. We can trust that our lives have value and none of us are meant to feel less than anyone else. We can soar above the anger and see the beauty in the world.

We are all here with purpose! We just have to uncover the love that reveals the truth. Our wings are all magnificent, and no matter how different each set of wings are, they all have special abilities to bring something great to the world. 

Let’s fly!

With Love and Gratitude,
