Change

How do you approach change in your life?

Do you push so it will occur as you think it should?

Or do you surrender and allow it to unfold?

Dear One, as you walk this physical journey you will have many changes occur in your life. Some of them may be initiated by you. Others may appear completely unexpectedly. And so we ask, how do you approach this change in your life?

If you have been inspired to make a change in your life, you most likely have a vision in your mind of how that change will impact your life. You make the assumption that if you do this then the result with be that. In fact, you may have purposely initiated this change with a certain outcome in mind.

Or perhaps, there is a sudden major shift in the direction you are moving and it takes you by surprise. In these cases, you may have no idea what the outcome might be. In fact, you may conjure up many possibilities which are fear-based and unsettling for you, encouraging you to try to control the direction of the outcome.

What is the best way for you to approach change in your life? Remember, Dear One, that you are not able to see the greater perspective as we do from our vantage point. You may not know how this shift in your life affects others. You may not see the lessons, the potential gifts of this change in direction for yourself and for others.

Can you surrender and trust that this shift will unfold exactly as it should for the highest good of all concerned? Can you quiet the chatter in your mind which anticipates problems or pitfalls that have not yet occurred and may never occur? Can you release the fear that creeps into your belly and just be present in the now? For this very moment is all that exists.

It is so easy for the human mind to create a plethora of outcomes, many based on fear. This mind of yours likes to be active and fear seems to provide many more possible scenarios than joy. Can you calm that inner turmoil and just allow the ebb and flow of the universal connections to move toward the most natural of outcomes?

If you must focus on outcome, can you choose the possible outcomes which are created in joy, in abundance, in love and in power? You have that choice, Dear One. When fear of the unknown begins to rise in your belly, shine that wondrous radiant light that is yours upon this trembling mass of negativity and doubt. Breathe in and breathe out the love of which you are made and engulf that fear with this unlimited love. You are very capable of taking this action.

How often have you anticipated an outcome and mourned the fact that it never occurred; only to be grateful when you have more distance from the entire situation? Can you trust that you have the strength and the support to move gently through any perceived challenges? Can you trust that you can move forward with grace and love and peace of mind?

It begins with recognizing your own power and your own worth. It begins with having enough faith in yourself and in your connection to the All to allow this change to unfold in the most perfect way.

Remember, Dear One, that the human mind sets great limitations on possible outcomes for every moment of your life. This is partially due to your inability to see and to believe in your own greatness and majesty.

Dear One, surrender to the truth that you are a wondrous and powerful being with strong connections to the All. You indeed are a part of this great mosaic of majestic love that encompasses all of creation. Understand that you are being supported and watched over with a love so tender and unconditional.

Call upon us for help when needed. And then know that every moment after the call that help is being sent in the most perfect way. Do not anticipate. Just allow and trust. Trust yourself and your place in the universe. Trust that life for you is unfolding exactly as it should and that you will survive in the most perfect way.

For you, Dear One, are a part of the majesty, the light and the strength of the All.

You are One With All of Thee.

Decisions

Will you make the right decision?

Say the right words, take the right action?

How do you know what is for the best?

Dear One, making decisions can be difficult for you as you question your intent, the potential outcome, and whether you know all that is necessary for this decision. You struggle and worry, often delaying a decision until it is too late. The time has passed or someone has made the decision for you. Is this the way you choose to live your life?

You have the power to create your world, to walk through your life with strength and courage. And courage is one of the components required to make a decision. Courage and trust in yourself that you are making what you consider to be the right choice.

Is there really a ‘right’ or a ‘wrong’ choice that you can make in this moment of time? Certainly different choices will lead you down different paths. But are some of those paths the ‘wrong’ paths? If this life is meant to be an experiential journey, then each path will be paved with its own unique experiences.

Predicting the outcome is difficult, for you cannot control all the components that affect it. You cannot know for certain how others might react, or what outside forces may come into play after you make a choice. The only thing that you can control is how you make your choice.

Are your choices, your actions or the words that you speak motivated by pure intent? Are you making this decision with pure motivation to take what you feel is the best course of action? If there is no negative energy attached to this decision, then make it and let it go.

In retrospect, you may realize that another choice may have been easier or less painful. But when looking back on a scenario, you often have more information than you did upon choosing that path. You may not have chosen that outcome, but as we have said, you do not have control over all aspects of this situation.

If you acted or spoke with pure intent, that is all that you could have done. There is no need to judge yourself harshly for choices made if your intent was pure. There is a tendency for those here upon this plane to spend long periods of time in self-admonishment for choices made which resulted in unintended outcomes.

Dear One, you are on a journey of self-discovery which means there is much growth for you to experience along the way. Yes, from a different perspective, viewed after the choice was made, you might say ‘I should have done that differently ‘.  However, you will also have more knowledge in your hand at this later time.

Trust yourself and the choices that you make with pure intent in your heart. Even if after the fact, you realize that perhaps that choice was not made with a pure heart, learn the lesson it provided for you and forgive yourself. And if necessary, ask others to forgive you also.

With each day that you spend here on this earthly plane, you gather more knowledge about yourself and how the universe works. If you look within your heart, you will find the best way to move forward in love.

There may still be times when you feel that you faltered or made a mistake. Trust that next time you will do better. Remember you are still in a human body with all of its emotions pulsing through your veins.

Open your heart. Be kind to the world. Be kind and forgiving of yourself. Remember this is a journey of self-discovery and growth. And there can be no growth without taking a chance of stumbling as you move along the path.

We will always be here to pick you up and dust you off. We will always be whispering in your ear to trust yourself and to act with an open heart. And we will always love you and forgive you no matter what choices you have made.

For we know you for who you really are.

For we trust you because of who you really are.

Follow our lead, Dear One, love and trust yourself.

Dear One With All of Thee

 

Memories

Time Will Tell by Audrey Kawasaki http://www.supersonicart.com

Open your heart and remember.

Remember a time when you were aware

Of the unconditional love

Surrounding you and

Filling your entire being.

Dear, Dear One, there is a memory deep within you of a time when you were bathed in unconditional love, filled with its essence. A time when you understood that you also were emanating that unconditional love. For that is who you were.

That is still the case. This is who you still are, a being of unconditional love, surrounded by love and emanating love with your every breath. The memory of who you really are is lying dormant within you waiting to burst forth in all of its glory and grace.

Why do you think so many of you crave being loved? Do you not say, ‘Everyone just wants to be loved’? This is because of that latent memory of times in another plane, where there was no question of the presence of love in your life, within your being.

Being in this physical state, embodied in this physical form, has given you the illusion of being separate, of being alone, of needing to earn the love of others. When in truth, you have so much love to give, so much love surrounding you.

But Ego has convinced you otherwise. It has convinced you that you are unlovable, unworthy of being loved; alone, forgotten and discarded. Oh, Dear One, nothing is further from the truth! Ask yourself why you crave this loving connection. It is because you miss the feeling, the awareness of unconditional love: your true state of being.

Do not listen to those critical voices in your head that come from Ego. It is unsure of itself. It is feeling threatened and so is working harder for its own survival. This is true with all dark thoughts, negative forces, coming to light in your world at this time.

As the light begins to shine brighter upon you, from within you, Ego will try its very best to convince you that you are mistaken and need to walk in fear to protect yourself from the darkness. The truth is that love is stronger than fear and the strength of that love lies within you. It surrounds you.

Allow the love within you to rise from your belly. Allow it to flow from your heart. Allow love to fill your every breath and sing the song of love that yearns to flow from your lips.

Remember, Dear One, who you really are and from where you have come.

Remember, Dear One, why you chose this journey upon this physical plane, with all its beauty and all of its challenges.

Remember, Dear One, that you are connected in love with All of Creation.

When Ego arises, when darkness seems to descend upon you, focus your power of love on them and watch them wither in its brilliance. Do not succumb to the perceived strength of Ego and its fear. For it is just a clever façade used to bend you to its will.

You are much stronger than fear. You have much greatness within. You have the power of love permeating your life. Use it joyfully, gracefully and daily. Join others who are on the same path of awakening and remembering.

And together, you can change the world, one breath at a time.

Walk in your greatness, your strength and reclaim the joy of who you truly are.

Dear One With All of Thee.

 

Illusions Created in Fear

Can you live a life of love?

Free from the illusions your mind has created?

Ego driven worries and doubts

All are illusions created in fear.

Dear One, you are a being of love. You were created in love. You are surrounded by love. You are able to emanate love with your every breath and change your world. Why then, do you continue to allow the illusions created in fear to paralyze your forward movement?

Close your eyes, breathe deeply and settle into your body. Call for the loving beings who are with you always to show you the love that they feel for you. And then wait. Breathe and allow your breath to be your guide, your comforting caress. As you follow your breath in and out, feel the love gently caress you from within. Feel the love cushion that surrounds you and drink it all in.

This is real. There is more love present in your life than your physical body can handle. It is not equipped to hold all of the Universal love which spirals around you, lifting you up in vibration, in spirit and in support. You, Dear One, have this loving embrace around you at all times.

The reason you are not aware of it is because you are not coming from your heart in your daily actions. You stay within your mind and allow Ego to create illusions of unworthiness, fragility, weakness and judgment. “How can I possibly do this,” you ask, “when I am so weak, lacking the skills, the courage, the knowledge?

This, Dear One, is your Ego speaking to you, controlling your actions with illusions created by fear. You have the strength, the knowledge, the courage, with a connection to the All that surpasses anything you might imagine. For you do not yet know of the greatness that lies within you.

Words cannot truly express the depth of love that surrounds you. And so, when you feel unsure of yourself allow our song to spring from your lips. Begin to hum, to sing the notes that come from deep within your heart. For these notes comprise the love song we sing to you each and every day.

Shine your brilliant inner light upon those illusions created in fear and watch them vanish in a swirling mist, moving away from your radiance. Dear One, there is only love. This Universe was created in love. Any darkness you see or feel is just an overshadowing of this love by illusions created by your Ego.

Can you begin today to allow yourself to feel the love, to walk surrounded by love, and to share this love with all who cross your path? There is no limit to this love. For any illusion which paralyzes you from forward movement, send it love and see how quickly it becomes weak and loses its power over you.

You have the ability to change your life, one step at a time….with love. Accept this gift of who you truly are from the loving beings who support you every step of the way. Shut off that mind and come from your heart and see how much easier it is to take that next step.

Accept your true nature. Stop and feel the warm embrace of love. And share it with all who cross your path. Break down the walls created by illusion, by fear. For love is stronger, much stronger. It has the power of the Universal Source behind it, how can it fail?

When you feel unsteady, stop, breathe and allow your heart song to spill from your lips.

Your heart will swell with love and so will your life.

Reclaim your power, the power of love.

Dissolve those illusions with love and move forward with grace and joy.

This is your true path, Dear One With All of Thee.

Courage

Cowardly-Lions-medal

 It flows through your veins

It fills the air around you

Do you realize how much courage you truly have?

Dear One, you are such a courageous soul with strength mightier than a sword. And yet, you see yourself as one without backbone and freely give away your power. Why do you not see the inner strength that you have?

Outward appearances mean nothing. Each physical body has its limitations, its flaws, its imperfections. But within your being lies the strength and resolve of the Source. Are you afraid to see the courage that allows you to move through your day? Would you truly prefer to have another make all the choices in your life because you feel you do not have what it takes?

Have you not seen that sparkle that shines from behind your eyes? How long will you allow another to lead you forward on your path? When will you choose to lead rather than follow the direction of your own life?

You, you, have a personal journey which you chose for this particular lifetime. You, you, understood the challenges that might lie ahead. But in your natural state, with a higher perspective than this human perspective, you were able to see the possibilities of this lifetime of learning.

The possibilities still exist. It is not too late. For time does not matter, it does not exist. You can still take the journey which you wanted to travel in this lifetime. But it will require you to find the faith to know that you can do this. It will require the faith to understand that you have the strength, the resolve, the courage, the opportunity AND the support of the All.

Believe in yourself.

How often do you see the strength in others that they fail to see in themselves? How often have you told a loved one that you are certain they will succeed because you believe in them? And yet, how often have you told yourself the same with the certainty that you have had for others?

Dear One, strength and courage are part of your make-up. But it takes removing yourself from your place of comfort and complacency to move forward upon your path; to soar as you knew you could before you became embodied in this human form.

It is difficult, we know, to break free of the human condition because you have little memory of your existence prior to this embodiment. Do not be afraid of your own power, your own strength. It is a gift for you, to be used as you move through this lifetime on the physical realm.

It is, of course, your choice as to whether you will use that gift to serve others or to only serve yourself.  And it is also your choice not to use that gift at all.

If you knew that this was the only lifetime you had here upon this plane, that your time was limited to experience the beauty of this world, would you act differently? If you knew you would take your last breath tomorrow, would you live your life differently today?

Every breath, every experience, every relationship has a gift for you. It may not be apparent in the moment, but it is there. How often has an unmet expectation become a relief as you move beyond it to view it from a different perspective?

Dear One, you were courageous enough to embark upon this journey on this physical plane. Do not become complacent and fail to see the gift in your life here. Share the beauty, the opportunities, the joy, the beauty and yes, the grief, the sorrow and the pain. For you cannot have one without the other.

Without strife there is no growth. Does not the light need to be compared to the darkness to fully experience the beauty it contains? You Dear One, are light and the darkness can be lifted as you allow that light to shine.

You have the ability to make a change.

You have the courage to make a change.

You have the opportunity to make a change.

What will you choose?

Be of Joy

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.

Your place in the world

Your connection to the All

The Divinity within you and all those you meet

Dear One, stop for a moment and contemplate who you are and why you are here. Think about the intimate connection you have with all that surrounds you, animate and inanimate. You are a part of all of this created by the Divine. And since a part of the Divine was used in your creation, you have divinity within you and around you.

You are never alone. How can you be with this connection that threads through everything you see, with each breath that you take sending out the presence of the Divine? You are the vessel which holds the Divine within you.  You are the distributor of Divine Light in every action which you take. You are the one who receives messages from the Divine and relays those messages to whoever needs to hear them.

You are the teacher of love, the student of life, the observer, the participant. When you pay attention, you are able to see the waves of energy coming from all those around you. You can feel the energy coming from your own physical form. Just rub your hands together and slowly bring your palms together until you feel that energy between them.

As a Divine Being you have much power which is available to you at all times. You use this power consciously or unconsciously in every interaction you have. This is the power to serve, to create, to honor, to help, to uplift and to love. This is also the power to take, to destroy, to judge, to ignore, to chastise and to hate. The choice is yours, Dear One, how you choose to use this Divine power within you. How do you choose to use this power towards yourself and others?

Every interaction is an exchange of energy. It can be that which brings a smile to your face, a warm glow in your heart or a feeling of discomfort and dis-ease. Learn to recognize how interactions throughout your day affect you physically, emotionally and ultimately spiritually. Encourage those interactions which bring you joy and inspire you to reciprocate the loving connection.

Review those interactions which bring you discomfort or nothing at all. And consider where in your body this unease appears, so that you can better recognize it in the future. Ask yourself if there is a lesson here for you, a judgment or expectation that is unnecessary, or if it is a red flag to walk away. You are receiving these cues throughout your day from your Divine Self. Learn to recognize these ‘gut feelings’ and learn from them.

You, Dear One, are never alone. That is impossible. You are always connected to the All and your actions will reflect back to you. Can you shut down that mind and begin anew each moment as you come from your heart, gently, sometimes firmly, but always with love for yourself and others.

Move forward gently, with grace and without judgment of yourself or others. Pay attention to how you move through your day and slowly make the necessary changes. Remember the power you have within, the Divine Light that fills your being and the love which surrounds you.

There is much joy in this world.

And your life is unfolding exactly as it should for you.

Recognize your place in this world and who you really are.

Dear One With All of Thee.
