How do you get through the trials of life?

How do you place one foot ahead of the other

And take another step forward?

How do you trust that it is actually a step forward

And not a step backward?

By having faith in yourself

And in your connection to the All.

Dear One, life on this physical plane can be very challenging. That is why this is a more powerful learning ground than most other possibilities. The physical body is fragile, though very functional. Human emotions come into play and you must acknowledge them without always acting upon them. And the mere act of being incarnated in a physical body gives the illusion of being alone. This is a challenge for the very best of you.

You have been told by many, including us, that meditation helps ease the weight of your perceived expectations of yourself and others. And yet, even in meditation, there is self-judgment for not being able to quiet the mind, as you feel you must during this practice. You feel pulled in so many directions with multiple tasks to do with limited time and resources. How do you move forward in grace and faith?

Dear One, the first step is to temper the self-expectations of your life needing to follow a certain path. Setting personal goals is a good practice, but those goals often do not include the energetic input from others. This illusion of being alone causes you to think that reaching your goals is determined only by your input and affects only you. When in reality, the web of connection sends and receives energies constantly across realms.

Can you, instead, move forward with faith that the result of your efforts is in perfect harmony with the All? Not reaching your personal goal does not define failure, for you have continued with forward movement. It could instead have allowed time for you to reassess, to reach out or connect with others. Or it may have provided a powerful lesson for you or for another.

You are in constant touch with many others, even though your physical body may appear geographically isolated. For this reason, you are affected by and also affect others in ways not within your conscious awareness. The result of your efforts may have placed you in exactly the perfect position to take your next step.

And when you take that next step, can you take it in faith and in gratitude? Can you understand that much of that self-judgment is only Ego ready to pounce and instill fear of failure within your psyche?

Dear One, can you allow yourself to flow from one task to another with the same ease that you move from one breath to another? Can you flow like water through your day, with a gentleness, filling the void which requires your energies at this very moment of time? Each moment may be different, have different needs for your presence, but can be reached with a fluid motion, with the grace of the flow of water. No rush, no judgment, just gentle movement forward throughout your day.

Step lightly, feel your foot connect with the ground upon which you walk. Breathe deeply and feel your connection with the air which fills your lungs. Stop and listen, pause and see what exists around you. Understand that your pause may have allowed another to take a step forward in the universal dance of being.

Dear One, take the time to bless yourself and your physical body for being able to reach this particular moment in time. Reflect upon how far you have come and trust that you will continue to move forward with gentle moves, sometimes with giant leaps, but always forward.

Release the need to have total control over your life. That is impossible because of the web of connection with the All That Is. Indeed, you have free will, always. But keep in mind the energetic vibrations which surround you at all times. If you feel that they are bringing you down, then move away from them, be it what you watch or read for entertainment or in your immediate environment with those around you.

As you continue to grow, you will become more aware of the changes of energetic vibrations around you and how you are affected by them. Allow yourself to gently flow to and fro, in between moments of action and rest. Allow this balance to be a part of your life.

You have so much to offer.

You have accomplished so much already.

And you have many more moments

Of joy and peace ahead.

 

Breathe deeply

Step lightly

And go forward with grace

With trust and with faith

In yourself and in the All.

Dear One With All That Is.
