What Do You See?

As you gaze upon your world

What do you see?

What do you hear?

How do you feel?

Now change that perspective

To one of love and compassion.

How does that change your world?

Dear One, all are here upon this physical plane to learn and to grow. And becoming aware of the different view you have when the lens is changed from one of fear to one of love is a part of that growth. What changes if you look through the lens of compassion and gratitude? When was the last time you chose this viewpoint?

You can see another as an adversary or as a teacher. You can view a situation as a difficult trial or as an opportunity for growth. You can hold onto the fear of lack or feel gratitude for the abundance in your life. The choice is yours.

Like attracts like. Those who live in fear seek out others who feel the same. And together they construct a world filled with lack, inequality and judgment. But this is their world. Is the world you have chosen the same?

Have you chosen to join those who live a life void of joy, of laughter, of appreciation for the beauty which surrounds them? Have you dulled your ears to the sounds of the birds singing their songs? Have you judged the downtrodden thinking that you are more entitled than they? Have you forgotten that all are connected?

Times of great trial often reveal your true nature and how you view the world. Those you thought were generous and compassionate become self-serving and judgmental. But also, those you thought weak and lacking show immense strength and abundance of spirit.  Which are you?

Each and every one of you has the capacity for greatness of spirit and love. For these are the traits which were instilled within you at the time of your creation. You have a part of the Divine within you. For every creation holds a piece of its creator. Reflect upon all that you have created in this lifetime. And how a part of you exists within those creations.

Dear One, it is your choice how you live this life here upon this physical plane. And you can change your perspective at any moment, from fear to love or back to fear.

Do not judge yourself harshly, for you are as a child learning to take those first steps. There is unsteadiness, but there is also someone there to support and encourage you. The same is true now as you continue to find your way. And that support comes in many ways, seen and unseen.

In times of great challenge, stop and take a breath. And ask yourself which fork in the road do you choose to take. Reflect upon how far you have already come on your journey. And if some of those steps were taken off the path, do not judge yourself. Understand that all the choices made brought you to where you stand today, in this moment.

If you do not like who you see in the mirror, look around you and see with whom you have surrounded yourself. What fills your immediate environment, is it light or darkness, is it love or fear? Look deep into the eyes of that person reflecting back at you. Can you see the sparkle of light coming from deep within? It is there. It has always been there. And it is connected to the Divine and all of creation.

You have the strength, the power to change the world in which you live. And it is possible that only a change in perspective will make a tremendous difference in your world.

Can you see others as fellow travelers on similar paths? Can you hold everyone who crosses your path in love? Even if they invoke memories which cause you pain. Pain may be unavoidable for it is a part of your growth, but suffering is your choice. Forgiveness, of self and others, will free you from the chains of suffering. Love, of self and others, is the key to freedom.

What do you see this day?

Does it cause you suffering

Or bring you joy?

Reflect upon your perspective

And the power you have

To change the world

In which you live.

Create a world of love

And know the joy of life.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

This Moment

buzzfeed.com

Today

What do you feel?

On what do you focus?

Are you aware of the love

Which surrounds you?

Are you able to give gratitude

For where you are

At this very moment?

Dear One, this moment, this very moment is all that exists for you. The past is a memory which resides in your mind and the future is not yet written. But today, this is the time that matters for you. The choices you make this very moment will affect tomorrow. What personal awareness do you bring to this very moment?

Your entire life is filled with choices, with opportunities for growth. Ones made in the past have brought you to this very moment in time. They have helped to create the person who stands before you in the mirror today. No mistakes were made, only choices.

Were those choices made in fear or in love? Were they made with expectations for certain outcomes? Have you offered gratitude for getting to this point in your life’s journey? And what have you learned from the paths you have chosen?The most wondrous thing about this human existence is that you have free will and can change the direction of your path at any time. Some changes may be more challenging, but Dear One, the choices are yours to make.

If you choose healing for another, for the world, understand that it begins with you. How you move through your day affects the currents across miles, across dimensions. But remember that all have free will and having expectations of another’s response may leave you saddened or disappointed.

You are connected to every atom of creation, far and wide. This means that changes you make within yourself do affect others, though perhaps not in the way you wished. For each are on their own journey with wounds or challenges of which you may be unaware. And the affects you have on another may not be apparent to you.

Respect and love for all of creation, including yourself, are such powerful tools for healing. Logical reasoning may lead you down the path of judgment. Going there is not advised as you do not see the entire picture of another’s life. Instead, begin with yourself, with loving and respecting yourself, no matter what your past holds. And do so for others as well.

Do not see yourself as victim, but as strong and courageous and powerful as you create a new way of being in this world. This is a time for reflection and processing how far you have come and which direction you choose to go next.

Honor others as they go through the same processing as you are experiencing. Do not see others as victim for that holds them in lower vibration. Instead, hold them in light, in strength and in joy. See them already healed, able to grow exponentially surrounded by the loving light in which you hold them.

Begin this moment, this day. They need not see the world as you see it. That is not necessary, for their experiences have been different than yours. But they are capable of love as are all of creation. And all are on this journey of self-exploration. The journey of the Divine experiencing Itself through you.

Do not forget that the internal flame within your heart is that part of the Divine which glows within each and every one of you. This is what you all share. This is how you all are connected. Through the loving flame of the Divine.

Choose this moment to begin anew, to trust that you have all that you need to move forward in love. You are held in such loving embrace by the Divine. And if you cannot feel that in your waking moments, ask that you feel/see it in your dreams. For those are times of learning also, when you can more easily connect with that which you hold dear.

Feel peace.

Know peace.

Begin this very moment

To choose love

For yourself and others.

It is your natural state.

Dearest, dearest One With All of Thee.

Impermanence and Creativitiy

design-milk.com

The world you see

Has a limited life span.

The emotions you feel

Can be lifted in a moment’s time.

Create the world you wish.

As the dreamer dreams

The world into being.

Dear One, you have been told that you are powerful enough to create your own world. It begins with you and expands outward since all are connected. Your joy can help lift another from despair. Your love can transmute fear. The world changes as you change your perspective. You are creator of your own world. What do you choose to create?

You are experiencing a wondrous change here upon this earth plane at this time. The possibilities of outcome are infinite and you have the power to help to create a new way of being. It lies in your hands as you move through your day and interact with others. Do you do it with grace or with fear and trepidation?

Everything you see is impermanent. Everything you feel is impermanent. You have the power to dream the world you wish into being. This is your opportunity to create what you wish to see going forward. The challenges which many of you are now experiencing are impermanent. But how you respond to them can have a lasting effect on your life, on your world.

Dear One, there are always many ways to see, to experience what crosses your daily path. Can you lift yourself from feelings of disempowerment and fear? You are present in this very moment because you have the strength, the resolve, the power to create a new world, a world of love and peace. It begins with you.

You are not alone in this. And it is possible to change your perspective and thus how you feel and how you act daily. You are but one point on a vast spectrum of light which shines throughout infinity. The strength you need, the joy you crave is there waiting for you to draw upon it. For you are connected to the Source, the Source of Love and Light.

You have already been creating your own world daily. But perhaps this went un-noticed because the changes were small. This is a time for you to trust in yourself and in the powers given to you from the moment of your own creation. For you are a spark from the Eternal Flame of Existence. And with that comes all the power of creation.

It begins with love. It begins with self-love. For loving yourself is tantamount to loving the Creator. You are one and the same. Take the time to reflect upon those traits of yours which you love. Can you list ten, twenty of them? Can you love yourself that much? Consider this as an exercise. Then repeat these daily for two weeks as you look at yourself in the mirror. Does this change your perspective of yourself and what is possible?

Dear One, give yourself time to sit and breathe, in and out. Dream the world you wish to see into being. See it as already existing and give gratitude for it daily. Look at your adversaries as a part of you, for indeed they are. Understand that it begins with how you see yourself.

Impermanence allows for change and growth. If this were not truth, then you would not be the creator of your world. You are present at this time because you have the gift, the power to create a world of love, a time of awakening for every embodied soul. Awakening to their true selves, to the power of love and connection.

You are a wondrous soul, an extension of the Divine, so that the Divine can experience Itself through you. Failure is not possible for this is an experiential opportunity for both you and the Divine. Dear One, you and the Divine are the same. As you are a piece of the Eternal Presence of Love.

There is a wondrous light within you. See it. This world of duality also has areas which fail to shine that light. This is caused by fear. Your current world is not balanced and requires your input to bring it back into equilibrium. This is done through grace and love.

This day is mere point of existence on the infinite timeline of life for you and for all of Creation. But it holds such potential for change through your actions, your perspective and your love.

Trust yourself and your power of creation.

Love yourself and begin to see your light.

Understand that all is impermanent

Constantly offering opportunities

For growth and change.

Choose love

Feel the connection with the All.

For indeed, you are

One With All of Thee.

Partnership

Your life is one of partnership

With the Source,

With the Mother,

With every sentient being

Upon this plane.

Dear One, before arriving here upon this plane, you conceived of a contract with others for your purpose/your lessons during this physical incarnation. Upon review of where you were and what you wished to learn, you chose to experience certain situations here; for personal growth, for universal growth. This life you are living now is a means to reach those pre-determined goals.

But the human existence can be more enticing, more challenging and vastly different than anticipated. This physical plane is a wondrous opportunity for growth with the duality, the sense of separation, and the physicality of existence.

How often have you said,’ If I knew it would be this difficult, I would not have done it.’ Often choices made took you down a path for which you felt unprepared to walk. And yet, you continued and often completed the task while learning invaluable lessons on the way.

Dear One, that is also true for your life here upon this plane. Plans made to have certain relationships with other souls while incarnated perhaps were more difficult than anticipated. Being in a physical form, so unnatural for a soul accustomed to understanding the connection of All, can create a sense of separateness. And with that, competition for survival often comes into play. YOU versus ME, rather than US together, as One.

All of what occurs in your life is there to support your desire for personal growth. Free will, however, can derail your original plans. The feeling of separation can be overwhelming and many souls have forgotten the partnerships established before incarnation.

The mistaken belief that power comes from money and control, rather than from love can be misleading. The incorrect belief that your thoughts, words or deeds do not affect others, when in fact they surely do. And the untruth that the Mother is yours to dominate rather than to steward as she helps you on your path in ways you do not acknowledge.

This physical world in which you live is a classroom for learning. And free will allows you to move forward in any way which you choose. But the Law of Cause and Effect does exist to allow you to experience the consequences of your choices. Not for punishment, but for learning.

If you can begin to look at your world as a collective, rather than as individual people or regions, you might begin to see how everything/everyone is connected. Your perspective drives your thoughts and your actions and your world.

If you see a world of chaos, judgment and fear, that will be your life. However, if you can take a step back and see a world of love, of potential and opportunities for growth, that will change your life. Dear One, can you change the lens through which you see your world?

Reflect upon the partnerships you have on this journey. The partnerships with the unseen world, ready to help you if you reach out/ go within for guidance. The partnerships with other incarnated souls, many who are in your life at this time to assist you in your desired path forward. Can you hold them in gratitude rather than judgment or contempt? The partnerships with the Mother and all of her creatures who give you messages daily in order to guide you forward.

Look for the synchronicities in your life. These are the guideposts for your path forward. Turn around your thinking from that of competition and judgment to that of gratitude and love. The ever-present power you hold is the power of love, nothing more.

Hold others in love and compassion, for many require help with their challenges. Reflect upon how your relationships have provided opportunities for personal growth. Remember that your perceived adversaries may be your greatest teachers. And when this life is complete, as you go through life review, you will see how much gratitude you hold for the most unlikely people/situations during this incarnation.

You live in partnership

With all who surround you.

Honor them

And hold them in gratitude.

For the opportunities they provide

For your forward movement.

Change your perspective

To one of love and connection

And see how your life changes.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

All That You Need

law-of-attraction-central.tumblr

All that you need

Lies within you.

Strength, compassion,

Knowledge and faith.

You come from love.

You are surrounded by love.

You are love incarnate.

Dear One, you came into being as an extension of the Source, the Oneness, the Divine. This means that you have a part of the Creator within you. This means you are a Divine being as well. You are co-creator with the Source with the power to create your own world.

If you find this difficult to comprehend, consider this. Do you not put a piece of yourself in everything that you do? The art, the music, the gardening, the writing, anything that you have created has a piece of you within it. So too, for you and your connection to your Source, your Creator, your God. For your divinity resides within you. Given to you during your creation, with love and only love.

This means that everything you see is a part of the Divine. For it was created by you or by the Source. Everything and everyone. And if the Divine, the Source, is love and only love, can you see how your entire world is love? Consider this truth.

It is your perception that has colored what you see, how you approach your world. The human mind was created to allow you to navigate this world. Memory serves you well in how you move through your day, not being required to relearn your daily routines.

But what has happened is that repetition and muscle memory have allowed your mind to wander. Not being required to be aware of what you are doing since you have done it so many times before, you have lost the capacity for mindfulness. While your physical body does one thing, your mind is far away, in future or past, anywhere but present.

The untethered mind, no longer connected to your consciousness, to your heart center, wanders into areas of fear and trepidation. Rather than using mind and heart together to create and move forward in love, you have allowed your mind to gain much power over your actions.

The truth of your existence, your true power resides within your heart. That is where your divinity lives and guides you when not deluged by the chatter of the mind. Dear One, the peace of your existence, your connection to the All lies within your heart.

Can you focus upon what your heart is saying to you? Can you give more credence to your intuition, your connection to the All rather than the ramblings of your mind? Can you understand that allowing your heart to guide you will restore your internal balance and lessen the fear which surrounds you?

You have the power to change your world, through fear or through love. Which would you choose to do this day? You have the strength, the faith, the resolve within to meet any challenge with love and not fear. You can wipe the slate clean and replace the darkness with brilliant lightness and love. YOU have the power to do this.

Understand that love surrounds you at all times. Always, always, always. Allow that love to enter within and transform any fearful thoughts into thoughts of joy and gratitude. You have been guided this far on your journey and you are still living and breathing.

You have much further to go and have the ability to move forward with grace. It is your natural state. You have just forgotten. Reflect upon prior challenges which seemed insurmountable and yet, here you are.

Replace any self-judgment with self-respect for how far you have come. Consider that each obstacle in your path is another opportunity to allow your heart to light the path ahead. Understand that you have the strength of the Source, the All, within you.

See yourself as a being of Light.

See yourself as a source of Love.

See yourself as part

Of a wondrous matrix of support.

You are ready for this.

You are strong enough

To move forward in grace.

You are……One With All of Thee.

Believe

queenbee1924.tumblr.com

In yourself.

In the Oneness.

In your connection to the All

And the power which resides

In that connection.

Dear One, you are not alone. You are not forgotten. You are capable of changing your life, of changing your world. You have the power to dream your world into being. For you are co-creator with the Source. The power lies within. The power lies in the connection with the matrix, with the All.

Whatever it is that you focus your attention on will become your world, your life. You have that innate power within you. You just have not realized or paid attention to how this unfolds in your life. If you live in fear, you will create whatever it is that you fear.

If you live in gratitude and love, your world changes around you. The day appears brighter, your step becomes lighter. And as you acknowledge the connection you have with the All, you can begin to feel it around you.

Close your eyes, breathe, and focus on that screen in front of you. Imagine the world you want into being as you see it before you.  Feel the peace of giving gratitude for everything that occurs in your life. For it is only a matter of perspective as to whether it is positive or negative.

This life you have is a gift, an opportunity to grow and you are supported by loving hands, with higher vibrations bringing you peace, lifting you up. This is being done for you every moment of your day. Accept this gift.

And then pay it forward to others, to the Mother, as she is in transition, growing as well. Can you understand that you are a part of the Mother and that her distress becomes a part of you? You are not separate but one with her. It is time for you to realize this connection is real, fluid and deep.

You, Dear One, are the conduit between the Earth Mother and the heavens, the unseen world. For you walk with a foot in both worlds. You can join both heaven and earth with your actions, with your breath.

Sit and imagine the energies of the heavens coming down through your crown on your in-breath. At the same time, imagine the energies of the Mother coming up through the soles of your feet. And allow both to meet and mix in your heart.

On the out-breath, send them back to their origins simultaneously, reversing the path. Repeat as you offer love and gratitude for the unique connection you have with both worlds. It is because of this connection that you are able to dream your world into being. For you are a part of both.

Reach out to the Mother, to the heavens and to others like yourself who are on this physical journey. This gift of connection is very powerful. You as yet do not grasp the power of this connection. Believe in yourself and in your connection to the All.

At your core is a loving spirit unafraid of the challenges that lay at your feet. For your true self understands that this time here is but a brief interlude on your eternal journey of self-realization. You, Dear One, have been given this lifetime on a physical plane as a gift.

And there are many in spirit who have not had this opportunity of life in this physical world. Their work is elsewhere while your work is here. Here is where you chose to be to do the loving work of which you are so capable. Anything is possible for you and whatever occurs, as challenging as it may first appear, is a gift.

Can you live in gratitude for even that which you do not understand? Can you reach out in loving expression to those who need a helping hand? Can you use this physical experience as a means to strengthen your connection with both worlds?

You are capable of all of these. For you are more powerful than you realize. Go within for your answers. Look to the Mother as a barometer of how well you are doing. Tend her as gently as you tend your loved ones. For all are One. All are connected.

Believe in yourself

And in the power

Which resides within.

Be the conduit between worlds

And reach out in gratitude and love.

For love is all there is

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Where to Now?

Painting by Mitra Shadtar

What comes next?

How do I cope?

Am I strong enough?

How will my world change?

Dear One, as a child where did you go when you were unsure and needed comfort? Did you not go to someone who you trusted? To someone who always made you feel better, calmer and ready to take the next step forward? Who is that person now and can you be the one who does the comforting?

All humans are fallible. That is part of the human condition. All have a shadow side which if not kept in balance can lead to errant behavior. But this shadow side also contains much strength and often is the impetus for lessons to be learned by yourself or by others.

For all are connected. This matrix of life intertwines all sentient beings upon this physical plane and beyond. The illusion of ownership is just that. An illusion. Not one being stands alone, required to gather possessions only for herself. For all share the consequences of a person’s actions, if only in the most remote way.

How does a new babe feel as it comes forth into a new world, with more light, more stimuli than previously experienced? How does that child cope in this new cycle of life? What of seeds bursting forth to express a new tendril of life pushing up through the darkness, moving towards the light?

Both cases provide a path through darkness into the light, with endless possibilities for building strength and facing new experiences. These are new awakenings. Just as the awakenings occurring this day for all souls incarnated onto this physical plane.

You move forward by going with the current and not trying to swim upstream against a force much stronger than you. Can you allow the current to cleanse you as it carries you to your next destination? Can you dip underneath the waters and allow them to wash away the fear, those parts no longer needed by you? And as you resurface perhaps you will begin to see that light within shining through your pores.

Dear One, go inward for your comfort. Reach for the connection you have with the Divine. You do not yet understand how brilliant you shine underneath that outer human layer of bone and flesh. The strength and guidance you seek is within you. The vastness of the Universe is reached by going within. The peaceful calm gently beckons you to sit in stillness and breathe in and out.

Shower this world with love. Imagine droplets of love falling from the sky bursting forth with brilliant sparks of light as they hit the ground. Cover this physical plane with these droplets of pure and healing love. Close your eyes and imagine this. Dream a world of love into being.

And offer gratitude for being guided this far on your personal journey. It will continue moving you forward and always you will have a guide to lead you. The trust required is trust in yourself and in your connection with the All.

Be not resistant to change, for does not the rigid break under pressure. You are energy, you are light. You are accustomed to the freedom of the ebb and flow of being. You have just forgotten while encased in this physical form.

Your personal chrysalis has opened and you are slowly emerging, drying off your wings before you soar in flight, in lightness of being. Dear One, you are ready for this. You have the strength and the resolve. Turn inward for guidance. Offer support to others who are chained to the old ways of being by fear.

You are the answer.

You are the strength.

You are connected in love.

Fear only separates you

From your internal brilliance.

Trust yourself and what is possible

Through love and connection.

Truly you are One With All of Thee.
