This week we celebrated Martin Luther King Day. It is the day set aside to honor a revolutionary man who courageously worked to achieve his dream of creating equality between all men and women. He is remembered as a man who inspired a generation with hope. I was thinking about the inspiration he brought to us and about what it is to inspire and be inspired.

As I began to ponder this, one of the definitions of inspiration. that I found is “the action or power of moving the intellect or emotions.” Another way inspiration is defined is “a divine influence or action on a person held to qualify him to receive and communicate sacred revelation.” Wow, take that in for a moment.

We become prompted by an outside stimulation or an inner stirring causes a thought or feeling that moves us. This movement vivifies and enlivens you. We feel stimulated and infused with juice. It’s how we can get our grove back or find our mojo.

These feelings and thoughts can turn into actions. We can become inspired and then can inspire others with what has come forth from our inner stirrings. We find our deeper connection with what ignites our passion and fire. When this enthusiasm connects with our inner wisdom and the collective wisdom of God, Universe or Absolute, we can really make our difference in the world.

How do we ramp up our divine influence? The more we are connected to our deeper self, the easier it is to allow inspiration to move you. Noticing your inner thoughts and feelings, what pulls on your heart strings or gets your mind jazzed are good places to start.

Just know that no matter what you do for a living, where you live or how old you are, you are held in Divine light and have an important role in this world.

Make time this week to take deep breaths, listen to your heart and notice what excites you. This answer could be a key to something the world needs. As you are listening, please allow your mind to know what your heart longs for. It might help to take up a meditation practice, Centering Prayer or some form of contemplation.

So what inspires you? What provokes you into a warm feeling or creative activity? What action, people, works of art, nature, book or blog stimulates you?

Let me know how it goes…

My children Joshua & Matthew inspire me, only 10 & 7- when they are seated on either side of me, holding me, there is no better feeling of bliss!This same feeling of peace, contentment & inner joy can be transferred to many areas of our lives if we pay attention - if we succumb to that feeling from our heart - we can experience it in many ways that surprise us! Try it. Allow that inner feeling to emerge, then stay with it moment by moment - notice what happens & notice what''s different! A great website Jennifer!
