Did you laugh today?
Did you sing today?
Did you dance today?
Dear One, this journey on the physical plane has many opportunities for joy. Yes, it was intended as a learning ground. But it also was intended as a source of joy, pure and utter joy. When was the last time you experienced that feeling?
We understand that the challenges of the human condition can be overwhelming at times and cause of anxiety and worry. But we ask you, how much of that anxiety and worry is caused by your actual situation and how much is caused by your perception of your situation?
Your life here upon this plane is one of adventure. For some, that does mean taking physical risks. But emotional risks can be just as much of an adventure. In fact, they can require more courage than any physical situations you might place yourself in for the sheer adrenaline rush that pulses through your body.
Perhaps the difference is that in physical risks you feel that you have a greater amount of control involving timing, resources and sheer willpower. The challenge might be considered to be between you and the Mother. Be it weather, terrain or physical stamina required. The strength of the mind appears to bring you success or failure.
In taking emotional risks, you may find yourself more vulnerable in ways of the heart. There is no protective covering that you might wear to lessen the blow. Old wounds may be buried so deep that you are unaware of their existence. There is not a bandage or stitch that can help in the healing process.
But if you can move forward knowing that joy is possible in every move you make, would that not lessen your anxiety? If you allowed yourself to laugh, to sing, to dance every day, if just for a moment, would that not change the vibration of energies within and around you?
Dear One, self-discovery awaits you around the next bend as you set off on these emotional adventures. Personal growth brings much more strength than physical training. Seeing the potential for joy, for creativity, for laughter in all situations can change how you approach your life. Know that lightness of heart can heal any situation.
Do not take yourself so seriously that you are unable to step back and see the humor in your situation. Are you able to laugh at yourself rather than judge yourself so harshly? Can you create a playful moment out of a perceived failure? Ask yourself how much does this outcome really matter to you. Much of the tension comes from a lack of trust that your life is unfolding exactly as it should for the lessons you chose to learn this lifetime.
Will you move forward on this experiential journey with a stern brow, squared shoulders and tense muscles waiting to conquer all? Or will you lighten your step, trusting that whatever occurs, you will have learned a valuable lesson? Or perhaps you will have taught another the lesson they wanted to learn on this journey.
Dear One, it is your choice how you move through your day. Can you stop and breathe deeply, look around and see the pleasures of life only a physical existence can provide? Can you skip rather than trod, sing rather than complain and dance to the music that plays for you throughout nature. It just requires you to stop to hear it. It plays for you.
Whatever happens in this life, you will always return to our loving arms, as we are anxious to see you at the end of this journey. The lessons are there for you for self-discovery. Can you change your perspective, lighten your step and allow yourself to play more as a child plays?
For are you not a child in this experiential journey of life?
Are you not lovingly watched from above by those eager to help if you ask?
Dear One, know more joy than fear.
Find the courage to dance, to sing, to laugh, regardless of the situation.
For you have the strength, the support, that comes with your connection to the Divine.
Be at peace.
Laugh out loud this day and smile. And see how the energy shifts around you.
Towards light and love and joy.
