In the Lap of Awe

The other day, while going through a pile of papers to be filed, I found a scrap with this written on it:

 “When did you last lay your head in the lap of awe.”

 Think for a moment – when did you last let yourself experience a true moment of awe? All of us have them.  One that came instantly to my mind was being present at my Goddaughter’s birth.

The dictionary defines AWE as “a mixture of wonder and dread … a feeling of amazement and respect mixed with fear that is often coupled with a feeling of personal insignificance or powerlessness.”

Yes, this describes how I felt watching Esther being born, and for you who have given birth, it must be definitely be the way you felt during the experience!

This is the type of fear mentioned in the Bible. There is a line in Deuteronomy 6:13 that reads “Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.”  Whenever “the Lord thy God” is mentioned, we can read it as the aspect of God called The Law. For me, this statement metaphysically says “You will be in awe of the Law, and use it, and know it is True by your experience of It.”

We are using the Law all the time, so let us consciously do so, and intend to have many little moments of awe this season. Recognize them and be grateful – and for goodness sake  — Believe!


I recognize the Infinite Awesomeness of The Divine. It is absolutely everywhere. I can not get away from It as everything is God in form and this includes me.

God is One with Itself always in all ways.

Today I allow myself to be in awe of the Power residing within me. With my thoughts and feelings I co-create my reality. I declare I am ready and willing to experience more of The Divine in every area of my life. As I speak my word for health, wealth, right livelihood, and loving relationships, I am in awe of how wonderfully Spirit works through me, creating more joy and wonder in my life!

Gratefully I release this word into Law, marveling at how delightfully the Law works for me, as me, though me. And so it is.
