Begin

Begin to see

All that exists around you.

Above, below, in front and behind.

What do you see?

And how does it make you feel?

You are connected to it all

Now and throughout eternity.

Dear One, can you begin to grasp the concept that all that you see around you, and all that is unseen in between is a part of you. An extension of who you are in this world and beyond. Beginning to understand this will help alleviate much suffering. For it will remind you that there is no loss. That you are never alone. There is only transformation and change.

Think of your physical body and how it grows from a babe to a mature form eventually declining in stature until transformation occurs. Think of the Mother and so many of her charges who grow, blossom and then rest until it is time to come forth once again in strength and beauty.

Consider what lies underneath many of Her charges. A root system intertwined and connected, unseen by the human eye but existing and nurturing a multitude of plants as they mature together. And consider the night sky. When viewed from a highly populated area only a few stars are visible. Yet, if you view the same sky far from any other light source, it is often impossible to discern individual stars. There are too many filling the darkness.

So too, with you Dear One. Why would you be different from any other life form here upon this plane and beyond? The human eye cannot discern these connections. But they are there. The human eye, in fact all of the human senses have lost much of their sensitivity. They have been over-stimulated with a plethora of sensations caused by living in a world filled with distractions.

Would it surprise you then, that the unseen world is also cloaked from view due to the world in which you live? Dear One, your mind races to gather and interpret all the sensations bombarding it throughout your day. It takes short-cuts and interprets views or sounds seen before, assuming they are the same. When in fact, they have changed. Perhaps minutely, but indeed they have changed. Incorrect assumptions are made by your mind which can perpetuate false beliefs.

Can you sit quietly and allow yourself, your body to rest, free from the cacophony of your life? Can you allow yourself to begin to feel once again, what it means to be a divine being? You come from a world of higher vibration and are currently living in a world of much lower vibrations. Beauty abounds here and the human form was created to allow you to enjoy this beauty. The human form in this world of lower vibration allows you to learn in a manner not available in other realms.

But the vibrations are now rising, slowly inching upward towards a level closer to that of your natural state. Many can no longer adapt to these higher vibrations while in a physical form. They yearn to return home to be free of this world and its many challenges. And so, they leave their physical forms behind to feel once again the warm embrace of the Oneness, unhampered by the distractions of the human form. But, Dear One, they continue to exist, connected to you and to the All That Is. An individual light shining brightly amidst all the others connected throughout eternity.

Begin to understand that what you call loss is only transformation. The cycles of the Mother show you how leaves dropped as the weather cools are replaced by newer, stronger leaves a few months later. The shedding of the old transforms them into nutrients to help sustain the continuance of life of the very trees from which they fell.

Understand that there are no empty spaces in your world and beyond. Energy is vibrating throughout your world and Infinity. You and your physical body also vibrate and when all do so in harmony, you will feel the difference, see the difference and know the truth of your existence.

Allow your physical body time to rest and rejuvenate. Then begin to notice the nuances of change in your world. Do not allow your mind to interpret what you experience. Allow instead, your heart to guide you forward towards a new way of being in this world, connected to the All That Is.

See the movement all around you

Honor the transformations that occur

And understand that you are capable

Of new ways of being in your world.

Better connected with your surroundings

With the seen and the unseen worlds.

Of this you are capable as the divine being

That you are.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Collective Healing

angel-kiyoss.tumblr.com

As you help others to heal

So too, do you heal.

And as you begin to heal

So too, do you do the same

For others.

Heal Thyself

And help heal the world.

Dear One, all present in this world have suffered and have wounds that require healing. But understand that individual healing promotes collective healing. For remember, that all are connected here upon this plane and throughout eternity.

As you continue to grow and allow your heart to swell with love for self and others, you are opening the path for others to do the same.

Consider this. What is the end result of your approaching an adversary in love rather than in anger or fear? It is more difficult for them to respond in anger for the flare of emotion has been dampened by your loving response.

Emotions feed off of one another and accelerate if each exchange mirrors the other in anger or fear. It takes a strong desire to put a stop to these exchanges by reaching out in love, rather than feeding the fire of anger.

But in order to gain that strength, you will need to understand your own triggers and begin to heal as you forgive yourself and others. Once this process has begun, you will notice a more neutral, even loving response to another’s aggressiveness.

A potential heated exchange may fall flat if there is no engagement. And the ability not to engage comes from the personal work that you have done for yourself. Imagine the possibility of entire populations ceasing to ‘take the bait’ during an exchange with another. With no engagement, the potential dispute has been disarmed.

What would happen if you began to see adversaries as self? Since all are connected. All are One. What would happen if judgment was replaced by compassion? True progress would be made across communities, across nations, throughout this physical world.

But it begins with you and with your own healing. For how can you truly love another if you do not love yourself? How can you not judge another, make comparisons between yourself and another, if you continue to judge yourself?

Global peace, universal peace, begins with you and your being able to find the peace that resides within your heart. For, Dear One, we have told you before, that the Universe does not exist outside of you, but within. Within your heart, where your connection to the All is anchored.

And so, we ask you to do the work and begin to forgive yourself. Face the traumas, gently and with assistance if necessary. Scan your physical body and discover where you hold that trauma and begin to send loving energies to that area. Fill it with light so that it can be dislodged, transmuted and given to the Universe, to the Mother, as light, healed by you.

Dear One, notice where the fear anchors within your body. Perhaps you have an injury or an emotional wound. Rather than focusing your fears on this area, send it love instead. Caress that injury with loving energies and see it healed and whole.

Allow yourself to feel and acknowledge the emotion, but only for the shortest of times. Then send it love. Ask for help. Remember that fear is a tool. It is there to show you something that you have missed on your journey forward. Give gratitude for that ‘red flag’ and begin to release the emotion that binds the fear to your heart.

As you move forward, and you WILL move forward, for you are a divine being, capable of miracles, go inward so that you can share the healing with others. You are not alone on this journey, with this healing.

Indeed, you are here on a personal journey of self-discovery. But, Dear One, as you continue this journey, you are also in service to others and to the Universal Intelligence within you all. Your personal healing allows you to help heal this world and allows the expansion of love across infinity.

Do not forget that you are a conduit between worlds and most perfectly placed to do the work you came here to do. You are surrounded by those who wish to assist you on this journey. Ask for help and it will be given. Given in the best way possible to allow you to move forward with grace.

Celebrate the healing of others. Assist in the healing of the Mother. And understand that you are more connected, more powerful than you realize. And most definitely, worthy of the Universal Love which resides within you.

Move forward with grace.

Allow the healing to begin.

Ask for help and remember

Your connection to the All,

To all that is beautiful,

Light and dark,

In this world.

For you are now and always will be

One With All of Thee.

Can You Do the Work?

wishflowers.tumblr.com

It takes work, Dear One

To change your world.

And the work begins with you.

For how can you love this world

If you do not love yourself?

Dear One, you have so much power, so much potential to change your world. But let us begin by helping you to change yourself. Not in any major way, for indeed, you are One with All. But can you allow yourself to look at your reflection and truly and honestly say ‘I love you’?

There were so many ideas and beliefs that you were subjected to in your formative years that do not serve you now, in this time of transformation. We offer no judgment on the sources of these ideas for many believed they were acting in love. And many were passing on what they learned in earlier times before the energetic vibrations of this plane began to rise as they do now.

It would be most helpful if the ancestral practices inculcated within you and your societies could be altered to practices based only in love. Can you sit and reflect upon your immediate response to others or to emotionally charged situations? Have you acted in a loving way or have you perpetuated the misconceptions of societal rules passed down through generations?

Consider the visceral reactions you have had to protect yourself at times when it is not necessary. You live in a different world, at a different time that no longer requires such a visceral response.

Consider how you view others who do not resemble you in outward appearance or in culture. Do you see them as different and therefore not worthy of trust or respect? Or do you understand that you are all One and they can provide such depth to your current life if they are approached with love rather than fear.

Dear One, this is not meant to be a treatise on how to revolutionize your world. We are attempting to help you to reflect upon the reasons why you feel and respond the ways you do. Much of it has been the result of the human form, which is not a perfect design. But there is much you can do by increasing your self-awareness of your responses to certain situations. And to reflect upon why it is you have acted in that manner.

As the energetic vibrations continue to rise upon this physical plane, you have more opportunities to affect the outcome. And it begins with how you see yourself and your placement in this world. Are you willing to do the work to understand that you are indeed a being of light created in love? Capable of moving mountains through the power of your love.

If you are ready, then ask for help. For it is waiting in the wings, anxious to lead you forward to a most loving way of life. And through synchronicity, through your dreams, and through nature, you will begin to receive your opportunities for growth.

Dear One, be not afraid of what you discover about yourself. For once brought to the light, old wounds, old ways of being can be healed. Do not fall into the trap of self-judgment as you embark upon this journey. For do you judge a babe falling as it is learning to walk?

Understand that this lifetime is one focused on personal growth and self-discovery. This is a learning ground for you to realize that you are One with All despite the illusion of separateness given by these physical forms.

And once you can begin to truly accept your connection to all of creation, then you can begin to feel the love and reflect that love back onto the world. Rather than blame, consider gratitude for what lies in your path. Reflect each day upon your responses to situations and gently consider the reasons for those responses.

For we urge you to use gentleness with yourself and with others. Remember that you are a product of what has occurred to you up until this point in time. However, you are now discovering new tools to use to crack that shell of fear and judgment which have been so present in your life until today.

Honor the life you have lived. Understand that all that has happened in your life has been an opportunity for growth. No comparisons, for each of you has come with specific lessons they wished to learn. Open your heart and allow the pulse of love to fill it to overflowing. That others may also drink of this nectar that will help you move forward in grace.

Rest and tend this physical body. For it is fragile. More fragile in form than you are in spirit. For you are an eternal being and this physical path is but a small part of your entire existence. Use it wisely. Find the love that exists within and share it with others and with yourself. For change does begin with you.

You are capable

You are surrounded by help.

You can move forward in grace

And shine your inner light outward

For all the world to see.

Do the work, Dear One

And see how your world begins to change.

You are connected.

For you are indeed

One With All of Thee.

The Road to Freedom

boulderlocavore.com

Lies before you.

Can you see it?

Allow your heart

To guide you forward

Towards this path

Of truth and love.

Dear One, you have been held hostage for too long. Can you allow yourself to see the path to freedom that lies before you? The door has always been open. Fear and lack of faith have prevented you from seeing it. Walk through now with the courage, the love and the truth that have always resided within you.

Allow the shackles of fear to drop from your body. Discard the armor that fear convinced you was necessary. Open your eyes and your heart to the truth that lies before you. See the beauty. Feel the connection with the all. And allow the caress of freedom to bathe your very soul.

We have told you before that you now live with a foot in both worlds, the seen and the unseen. It is now time, Dear One, for you to put more weight on that foot which exists in the unseen world. For this is the world of your birth, your true birth. This is the true reality for which you long. A world of love, of connection and of truth.

In these times of change, the cauldron is full of many ingredients that confuse your sense of truth and loyalty. As the change continues to percolate, many of these untruths and misguided thoughts will evaporate into nothingness. This leaves you with the basic ingredients of your true nature. Love, freedom and connection to the All.

Change has already begun and in these initial moments, all must be stirred up, mixed to ensure that all the necessary lessons shall add to the sweet flavor of what is to come. While all that adds only bitterness will be removed over time.

You are not embodied at this time only to taste the final outcome. You are here to add your own personal seasonings, those of lessons learned, gratitude and forgiveness given. And always, love. Dear One, do not stand back and wonder how this dish will taste. Step up and contribute to ensure that your unique gifts are included in the recipe for change.

Understand that much stirring is necessary which will cause chaos to rise and bubble up. But it is only temporary as what remains after much loving attention will be as sweet as nectar. This is where freedom reigns as you taste the results of all of your efforts to create the very best.

Understand that you have many choices. What do you choose to add? Is it judgment and fear or is it love and compassion? Can you understand that in order for the recipe for change to be as sweet as possible, heat will be required. Molecules must be broken down in order to be re-arranged into the final glorious product. But the more love and compassion you add, the lower a temperature will be required.

You have the freedom to consciously contribute the best ingredients you can to this recipe for change. Do not allow it to be overpowered with bitterness, fear and anxiety. For the more bitterness added, the longer it will take to evaporate.

Open your eyes and see the possibilities that lie before you. Understand the power you hold in your heart to connection with like-minded souls and help to shorten the time for change. All are watching. All are sending whatever they can to guide you. Many are coming in spirit to whisper in your ear and guide your hand (add a little bit more, a little bit more of your love).

 You have everything you need within and around you. Lean into that foot which sits in the unseen world and feel it lifted. Lifted by love and connection. The heaviness is gone, for that only exists here upon this physical plane.

Ask for guidance as your body rests. This is the time when information can best be exchanged between worlds. For do not doubt, Dear One, that you have much to share with the higher realms. Just as they have much to share with you.

You are ready for this exchange. You are needed at this time to live in your highest vibration. And if you stumble, there are many loving hands ready to lift you up once again. To freedom.

You are One, Dear One.

You are powerful

And you are needed

To work as a conduit

Between worlds.

Perfectly placed.

As One With All of Thee.

What of Justice

pinterest.com

Right versus wrong.

What distinguishes between

These two concepts?

Is it not in the eye of the beholder?

Is this a human or a universal concept?

How do you move forward

As an embodied being of light?

Dear One, much of the discord upon this physical plane comes from the differences in opinion of right versus wrong. It creates a tension that often accelerates from thoughts to words to action, often violence. It can separate loved ones from each other, cause intense suffering and hold this physical plane in lower vibration.

Are these the actions of a divine being? Is there a Universal code which polices actions in order to create harmony across the cosmos? How does an embodied spark of the Source move forward with grace through this sea of discord and suffering?

Let us be clear that the teachings of universal wisdom speak only of love. Not judgment. Not fear. Not justice. Only love. For love is all that is. And love inculcates every sentient being within the Universe. For all were created in love and have love within to guide them forward.

What of this human need for control, power and perceived justice? Does it not come from fear and the inability to see the connection of all to each other and to the Source? True power comes from love and only love. Anything else is but an illusion of power.

What this way of thinking does is lower your vibration by thinking that certain actions must be taken to maintain that illusion of power. Material wealth must be protected. More for another means less for you. An illusion of ownership is created of that which is in reality, only a holographic image.

You have been placed upon this physical plane which has abundance for all for the purpose of self-realization. Much of the disparity between individuals offers the opportunity for growth. Many have chosen their life situation to provide the lesson for another to reach out in love and compassion.

Can you, instead of judging another, see them in their true form, as a divine being? Can you hold another in light and in their highest vibration rather than in judgment? Can you see some truth in that different point of view rather than immediately judging it as ‘wrong’?

Like attracts like. But seeking out others with different viewpoints can accelerate your own personal growth. It begins with creating a neutral space, with seeing it as a loving interaction, and listening, really listening to why another feels the way they do.

The beauty of this learning ground is the vast amount of knowledge that has been amassed by all present here. Do not lose the opportunity to share this knowledge amongst yourselves by staying within a small radius of experiences. Reach out to those who differ from you. For each and every one of you comes from the same body of creation. And all of you are One.

Look to the Mother for guidance. See how she thrives by allowing diversity to exist among her charges. There is no judgment within nature. There is no right or wrong. There is only sacred life co-existing among diverse species. Each providing a unique component for the survival of the All.

So too, within the human form. The vast difference of experiences when shared for mutual benefit can increase the vibration of each other and of this physical plane.

Honor the diversity among you for much can be learned from the trials of another. Practice compassion and non-judgment. For indeed if all are one are you not only judging yourself? And know that every action causes a wave across infinity. Choose to create a wave of love towards others and indeed towards yourself.

Remember, Dear One

From where you come

That All are One

Loved unconditionally

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Come Forth in Love

Gloria McDonough
twitter.com

Emerge from your shell

Of fear and despair.

Break free of the chains

That prevent you from rising up.

Allow your vibrations to soar.

And share them with the world.

Dear One, it is time for you to break free of the old ways of being, the old ways of thinking, the old ways of reacting to your interactions with others. Can you begin to walk with an even gait, solid in its grounding to this world. But also attached to the higher frequencies above and around you.

For you, Dear One, are a conduit. A conduit between two worlds, one seen and one unseen, at least by the human eye. You have a very unique role in the expansion of the Universe. For you are a divine being incarnated in a human form during a time of immense transformation of creation, of the All That Is.

It is no mistake that you are here upon this physical plane at this time. Your role has been pre-ordained prior to embodiment. However, you always have free will and can choose not to follow through on your original plans for this physical lifetime. The choices you make will not diminish our love for you or the intense joy we shall feel when you return home to your natural state.

If you do not understand what it is that you have chosen to do in this lifetime, stop and reflect. Consider the gifts that you have been given. Do not doubt that you do have gifts. And they can be discovered upon reflection of what comes easiest to you.

For many, your gifts are just now beginning to emerge. The timing was not yet appropriate for you to blossom into your highest form of being. Be patient and be aware of the synchronicities of your life. A chance encounter, an offhand remark, the spark of a memory long forgotten. Any of these could be the catalyst to help move you forward.

Personal growth follows a unique trajectory for each and every one of you. Perhaps more specific experiences are required before your gift will become apparent to you. Worry not. For your time will come. It may already be here. Sit, reflect and offer gratitude for all that you have been given. For all, regardless of whether it is considered positive or negative from a human perspective. For all that transpires here upon this physical plane can be viewed as a path forward towards your self-realization.

Dear One, we ask you to focus your energies on raising the vibrations around you. They are indeed being raised already due to the natural evolution of the Universe. But because of your unique position as a conduit, your awareness and focus are helpful and needed at this time.

Be at peace with your personal life. View it from a higher perspective and make a conscious effort to see the beauty, to feel the joy that surrounds you. For life and learning are always in motion and always providing new opportunities to celebrate if viewed from the perspective of the divine.

You are a child of the Universe. At the same time, you are a divine being, capable of creating the world you wish to see around you here upon this physical plane. You have immense power and that power comes from love. The love which created you. The love which resides within you. The love which surrounds you. The love which you can share with all who cross your path.

Come forth in love. For this is your true nature and with practice you will find it much easier to respond in love and only in love. These are challenging times for you here upon this physical plane. But within those challenges lies the path to personal and Universal growth. You are ready for these times. You are capable of assisting in the transitions that are coming. And you can and will expand and blossom beyond your expectations.

Remember who you are.

Remember from where you have come.

Remember that you are not alone

Not forgotten or forsaken.

You are held in loving embrace

Every moment of your existence.

For you are indeed and always will be

One With All of Thee.

Authenticity

You strive for perfection

When perfection is already present

Within your divine self.

While on this human journey

Strive instead for authenticity.

In who you are right now

In this very moment.

Dear One, you are a divine being embodied in a human form for a lifetime experience here upon this physical plane. That divine being, created from a spark from the Source, is perfection seeking a path of knowledge. Knowledge to be shared with all of creation while your body rests and when you return home to the Source.

Many in their human form do not understand this truth and believe that perfection must be achieved in all that you do. This lays a heavy burden upon your human shoulders. There is a part of you that remembers life without form and desires to achieve the same experience while embodied upon this plane.

It is a challenge, we understand, since you are still unaware of the purpose of this physical existence. Just as you train your physical body with certain limitations, perhaps with using weights or running great distances in short timeframes, so too, your physical existence provides many challenges to overcome. To overcome as you journey on your path to self-discovery.

You have the illusion of being separate from all that surrounds you. Of being alone in this world. There are intense emotions which appear to rise and fall at whim. And there are the illnesses that overcome your physical form adding more limitations to your earthly life.

Dear One, you are living a dual existence at this time. A divine being in all of its perfection, connected to the Source. And a physical form presenting challenges previously unknown to that divine being in its natural state. It truly is an education of the highest caliber. Challenging, but despite what you believe, an education that provides invaluable knowledge no matter how you judge the outcome.

While embodied upon this plane, can you cease the quest for perfection? For perfection is already present within you. Instead, can you seek authenticity? Acknowledging the limitations experienced within this physical frame.

Each of you has chosen a specific lesson to learn during this lifetime, and so the stage has been set for that lesson to be provided to you. But in addition to those individual lessons, there is also a collective knowledge that is sought through the combined existence of all embodied souls upon this plane.

In order to move forward with grace, the first step is to accept yourself exactly as you are at this very moment. You have personal limitations and challenges, hurdles to climb and goals to achieve. It is not necessary for you to be like another. It is only necessary for you to be yourself, exactly as you are.

Yes, indeed, there have been actions, interactions, situations experienced which you feel were unwise, perhaps even cruel. Ones you wish to forget for how they made you or another feel. But Dear One, these are part of the learning process. And how will you learn if you do not stumble, perhaps even fall on occasion? Know that we are always there to lift you up, shake off the dust and encourage you to continue.

Can you accept who you are at this very moment and move forward from that starting gate? Can you accept your imperfections, your vulnerabilities, your limitations and still move forward with grace? The point is to continue the journey with compassion for yourself and others. Putting on that mask to disguise your true self is a tiresome and unnecessary act.

Can you instead honor who you are in this moment? For knowing who you are on this journey is the first step to living with authenticity. Perfection within a human form should not be a goal, for it will always appear unachievable and require a false presentation of who you are.

But authenticity can be achieved easily with acceptance and grace. It allows for the possibility of change to overcome imperfections or vulnerabilities. But it also allows you to relax into your form. This is who you are in this moment. Yes, you may not see the person you wish to see in the mirror each morning. But change and growth are possible. And with that growth comes the knowledge you came here to learn and to share with the collective.

Perfection, as you define it, can never be achieved. For it is an illusion. There would be no point for you to continue this physical journey if perfection was achieved. But authenticity is attainable and the path to non-judgment, compassion and unconditional love. For accepting your own imperfections will allow you to more easily accept those imperfections in others. You are all teachers for and students of each other as you exist here upon this physical plane.

Add to that the higher energies now appearing to lift you up. Dear One, there is so much help available to you. Success is guaranteed, no matter what occurs. For every moment of your day, you learn more about yourself. Can you accept those aha moments with gratitude and grace?

Be true to yourself

Accept who you are

And feel the burden lifted.

You and all you see

Are here to learn from,

And to teach one another.

With grace and with love.

It is possible.

Be authentic in who you are

And see how your life changes.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Lessons from My Blueberry Patch

Today

A more personal post

About the farm

And my blueberry season

This year.

The heat index may be inching towards 100 degrees, but the signs of fall are already here. My ornamental cherry tree has leaves that turned yellow which are beginning to float to the ground. The tobacco farmers around me are in harvest mode. They are always revving up as I am slowing down.

My blueberry season is officially over usually by mid-August. What’s left on the bushes is for the local fauna; the bees, birds, deer and any other critters who roam through the blueberry patch. I still go out to pick some berries for freezing, but the pressure is off. I’ve done my best.

Being a blueberry farmer has taught me so much. Humility, gratitude, generosity and acceptance of what happens. I have been reminded so many, many times that I am not the one in control. A way of thinking that puts so much burden on my shoulders, since I think it’s all up to me. So, learning this lesson, though humbling, is also freeing. Knowing that there is only so much that I can do.

Every day I walk around this land and give gratitude for all that I have. For being able to live here and steward this piece of land that I love. I thank all the earth spirits for teaching me how to live in harmony with the Mother. And over the years, I have noticed more and more the gifts I have received through a synchronistic relationship with Her.

Though I haven’t yet mastered easily moving through life this way. I still worry in spring if the number of berries, pickers and buyers will all overlap in perfect harmony. Despite my worries, it always does. What a stubborn creature of habit I am, with my spring worrying. You can set your calendar to the time when that nagging feeling begins to show up in my mind. Perhaps next year will be the year I cease this futile exercise in emotional self-doubt. I always hope for that.

But like many businesses, COVID has had its effect on me these past two seasons. With many of my buyers closed down, my orders were cut in half.

But here’s how the synchronicity works. The first summer of COVID, one variety of blueberries that I have, about 30% of my crop, didn’t produce any berries. I was in awe of them choosing that year not to produce. The vendor I bought those bushes from warned me that on occasion one of the two varieties I have may not produce one year. And so, I had fewer berries that year, but I didn’t need them anyway. Rest, dear bushes, for this season. A perfect time to do so.

I also lost many of my seasoned pickers due to COVID. A big lesson for me. How do I get the berries off these bushes for the buyers that want them? Somehow it all came together. And what I learned was that I had to meet people where they were. I had to grow and adjust myself as I was looking at a different way for the season to evolve.

So instead of my seasoned pickers, I had some very interesting people come up the driveway to pick. An older man, painter by trade, who was on disability and who needed a break from the rigors of climbing ladders. His son, who arrived in cowboy boots, cowboy hat, with a radio in his back pocket playing country music as he picked. A master gardener, who studied herpetology, and also had a medicinal herb garden at home. Something that came in handy for me, as I came down with a respiratory virus near season’s end.

Two young brothers, one legally blind who relied on his older brother for much. I don’t know how he did it, but he picked blueberries throughout the season, putting his face right up into the bushes. Every time my dog showed up in the row they were picking, they would both start singing ‘Ghost Dog’. Was it from a video game or TV show? I don’t know. But I told them that I would always hear that tune in my head when I thought of them.

A young woman who has had a troubled life, be it self-made or created for her by others, I don’t know. But she tried her best to keep her spirits up by singing while she picked. And finally, one of my old pickers, back in the area again, came to pick and was a god-send as I tried to train all the newer hands in the blueberry patch.

I’ve always worked with the energy here on this farm. Raising it every day to the point that people who are sensitive can feel the difference. It’s a place for healing. Many feel as if they are bursting through a protective bubble when they leave and drive back off into the world beyond my acreage.

And especially this summer, I felt that everyone who came to pick needed to be here. For their own healing or perhaps for my healing and personal growth. Teaching me to meet everyone where they were. Acknowledging their limitations and my own and accepting that, as we all worked hard to produce what needed to be harvested. So not only did they help me get my orders filled, they delivered some lessons to me as a bonus.

Every year, the thing I’ve always loved about having a blueberry farm is the circular nature of it. I have berries that need picking to sell to my buyers. And my pickers need money to pay their bills and so they show up at 6AM every morning. We are helping each other and I’ve always loved that feeling.

For despite what we might think, we are cyclic creatures. As the sun rises, so do we. As it sets, we begin to wind down. We have our routines that coincide with the cycles of the Mother. And so, as I see the leaves begin to turn on my cherry tree, I understand it is time to welcome autumn and all the joys it brings.

I’m looking forward to a quieter time. Not having to rise at 4:30AM and go to bed before the sun sets. But I am someone who needs to stay busy. What will I do now to live a purposeful life? I have no idea. But whatever it is, I’m certain there will be lessons involved.

How to Create a New World

murmuraundeseoalasestrellas.wordpress.com

It is possible

To create the world you desire.

For you are co-creator

With the Source.

Wipe the slate clean

And begin to create

A world of love.

Dear One, the world you currently see is in transition. Just as the Mother must flex and move Herself in order to grow, to expand, to adjust to the new energies. So too, with you and the world you see. This is not punishment, but expansion, growth into a new order of being.

Consider how that which now exists must be broken down in order to be rebuilt. You do it every day in your lives. But you have never experienced it on such a global scale. Recycling the old, discarding what cannot be used, and reframing for future growth and prosperity.

You have the power to change your vision of this world. Wipe the slate clean and create before you the world in which you wish to live. See before you abundance, love, laughter, joy and peace. Just as the efforts of combined prayer have helped create peaceful resolutions, so too, can visions for a kinder, gentler, more loving world create the results you desire.

Yes, indeed, work together on this physical plane helping to change this world one step at a time. But do not forget that you are also an energetic being. Do not forget the power of your thoughts. Do not forget the ability you have to create a different world energetically.

All that you see and hear throughout your day are the images and words of a physical world. But, Dear One, do you not realize that the physical world is first manifested as an energetic thought? You have a foot in both realms, the seen and the unseen. And you have not yet discovered the power of the part of you which lives in the energetic universe.

You have learned to communicate here in words, in languages that differ across nations. But now, you are also able to communicate energetically, in pictures, thoughts of what is possible. But in order for you to begin to move in this new cadence, you must be shaken from your old ways of being.

Do not, for a moment, think that those who are suffering are alone and forgotten. For each soul which is undergoing severe physical or emotional challenges, there are numerous beings lifting them up. Attempting to raise them above the bindings of fear.

But fear is pervasive in this physical world. It holds you back from rising above the ashes of change necessary for both personal and collective growth and expansion. Can you begin to replace fear with faith? Faith not only in the unseen world, but faith in yourself. Faith that indeed, you can make a difference through your prayers and your thoughts. Visions of a different world.

It begins with how you respond to what you see. We have told you before not to see another as sick or wounded. For this holds them in lower vibration. Instead, see them already healed and glowing in their natural lightness of being.

This same approach can be used for the entire world in which you exist. Rather than see destruction and lack, instead see transition and infinite possibilities for change. Do you remember how your legs ached in your formative years as those bones grew and expanded? Do you remember the pain of childbirth?

Dear One, all change and growth is the result of much effort and pain. As we have told you before, pain is a part of this physical life. However, suffering, is the result of your thoughts and how you see the world before you.

You are the courageous ones, the divine beings who chose to be here upon this physical plane during this break-down phase. The phase which precedes immense change and growth. But you are seeing this world through physical human eyes, rather than through the eyes of a divine being.

Raise you sights and begin to view this world phase from a higher perspective. Through the vision of the divine being who you are. You are struggling to make this transition for you have lived so long with the belief than you were only human. Without the abundance necessary to prosper. More for you, less for me. When in fact there is enough abundance of light, love, guidance, help and sustenance to allow you to transition into a more divine way of being.

Change is possible. Change is occurring and it may involve physical and emotional pain. But suffering is optional. You are strong enough to move forward with grace. Reach out with loving embrace towards others who need your light. And call upon us when you feel your own light wavering.

It is time to view this world

Through the eyes of the divine.

You have the power to change this world

From lower to higher vibration.

Be the conduit between both realms.

Help us to raise up your world

By opening the channel between worlds.

Through your prayers and your thoughts.

Bring a new world into being.

This is possible for you, Dear One.

Dearest One with All of Thee.

Worry Not

Art by Daniel Holeman

As this world of yours

Continues on its learning path.

Providing opportunities for growth

And expansion.

Understand that you still

Are embraced by loving arms

Gently guided from above

As you continue your journey forward.

Dear One, there is much for you to learn as your world continues forward guided from decisions past. Opportunities lay before you to walk in grace or in fear. Remember your divinity. Remember that your journey here in this embodied form is for personal growth. And for the growth of the All.

Raise your vision higher. Increase your vibratory energies. And choose to walk with love in your heart. Deny fear the entrance to your home. Acknowledge it knocking at your door, then send it on its way. For fear is not the path to take, now or at any time.

You are a being of love. Shining brightly through every pore of your physical being. Do not allow fear of the unknown to throw a cloak over that luminescence of which you are. If you can remember from where you have come and to where you will return, you will understand that all is well.

All that you see is an illusion. A holographic experience created for your personal growth. The stage was set and you were allowed free will to move forward as a babe is allowed to take its first steps independently. But always under the loving eye of the Oneness, the All. Always held in gratitude for the courage you had to embark upon this journey. Not knowing the physical outcome.

The spiritual, energetic outcome is well-known and has never changed. No matter what happens here upon this physical plane, you, Dear One, will return home to the welcoming embrace of the All. This is a given, for each and every one of you.

Understand the connection between all sentient beings. Among all of creation, seen and unseen. There has never been an effort to judge or punish you as you embark upon this journey of self-discovery. In fact, much has been done to make this journey forward as gentle as possible for you. For you are a child of the Divine, loved unconditionally.

You are stronger that you realize and that strength can be drawn upon during the most challenging times of your life. But it is easier to pull from that well of strength understanding your own divinity. Your own ability to create the world in which you choose to live. This is the gift you were given as you chose to incarnate at this time.

You, Dear One, are capable of miracles. And that is done through the act of love. Loving embrace of all that you see before you. Compassion and grace. Motivated ONLY by love and nothing else. But the human condition allows for emotional attachment which causes you much suffering and doubt.

Can you walk a path of love and gratitude, generosity and faith while viewing your world through compassionate detachment? Do what you can to change that which you no longer wish to experience. But step back and begin to observe from a higher viewpoint. That of a higher vibration. That of a divine being.

Dear One, understand that all that occurs in your life still leads you home, to your natural state. All that occurs in your life provides a lesson for you as an individual soul or for the collective consciousness. And all that occurs in your life is buffered as best is possible to provide the gentlest of lessons for you.

You are surrounded by love. And those around you can help you through the darkest moments. By witnessing with loving eyes. By holding you in high vibration. By surrounding you with the powerful elixir of love. All of these can also be done by you for another.

Can you have the faith that you are not alone and that you have the strength, the tools, to move forward in grace. No matter what occurs in your life. You are a divine being experiencing a physical existence as a brief interlude in your eternal life. These lessons are invaluable for you and for the All as you move forward beyond this physical existence.

Reach out and reach upward during your most challenging times. Your calls are always heard and answered. For we exist beside you as you breathe each breath throughout this physical journey. Worry not, Dear One, for the All feels everything you feel.

Remember that All are One. Move forward conscious of the connection you have with all which you see before you. Though an individual soul, you are connected to all of creation. Can you begin to act as part of a whole rather than as a single entity? For that is an illusion that can now be put to rest.

You are One with All.

You are strength, love and grace.

You have the power of love

As your most important tool.

Share it with all who cross your path.

Turn it back upon yourself

And douse the flame of self-judgment.

You are a creation of love that fills your every cell

Allow it to flow freely within and around you.

Change your world, one breath at a time.

Dearest One With All of Thee.
