Dear Readers,

Below is guidance that I received for today’s solar eclipse. Thought you might want to read it also. Many blessings to all.

Celine

 

Regarding thy day of darkening:

Honor thy land

Honor thy physical world

Honor thy life and the love that surrounds thee

Honor all that has occurred to thee in thy life,

For it has allowed you to grow…

To be where you are at this moment of time.

Honor all of existence

Honor thy past, thy present and thy future

Honor thyself

Honor all of creation, Dear One

And be at peace with all that is

And with who thee are this day

And where thee shall tread tomorrow

Surrender

Do not fight against the current.

Instead, allow it to take you where you need to go

The destination may surprise you

And be more glorious than you ever imagined.

Dear One, the inclination is to work towards the outcome which you think is necessary, right and appropriate. However, you do not see your life from the higher perspective as we do. You are limited by the human mind, which does not know all the wondrous possibilities available to you. Can you surrender and trust that your path is on a trajectory to greatness; to coming into your power, which continues to lie dormant in so many still, upon this physical plane?

The trials, the frustrations, the disappointments that occur in your life may seem to keep you from moving forward in the fashion you feel is best for you. When in fact, it is these challenges that steer you on your path to greatness. Reflection upon what happens, forgiveness and blessings for all involved provides opportunities for the unlimited love within you to emerge, even in the most trying of times.

Can you be that loving individual in times of stress? It is much easier to be calm and gentle when life appears to be unfolding in a most positive and uneventful way. But what do you learn during these times of easy living? The true lessons come when you are challenged by unanticipated events, which might affect your planned timeline for your day, your week, your lifetime. Are you able to be as calm and forgiving during stressful times? The answer is that yes, you can. But it takes reflection and practice.

Dear One, instead of fighting with such emotion to have your life evolve in a certain fashion, can you instead move through these challenging times with a calmer demeanor? Can you send love out into the world, send blessings to all and continue to treat all with respect and kindness, rather than with anger and frustration? Your world does not need more fear and anger. It yearns for more loving kindness and gentleness.

It begins with you and how you move through your immediate world. For just as the stone thrown into a body of water creates concentric circles, so too, does your internal emotional state send out waves of energy from your core. Can you send out love instead of anger? Can you send out blessings for all; the victims, the perpetrators and the observers? All would be served by receiving loving energy instead of fear and anger. This includes the observers who try to make sense of a world exhibiting such fear at this time.

Everyone here upon this plane was created in love and has unlimited love within them. Everyone. And everyone is affected by their environment, be it one of fear or one of love. Can you be the one to radiate love, trust and faith in humankind? It begins with you, in how you view those personal challenges present in your life. Can you step back and surrender to these challenges, with the faith that all will unfold in the most perfect way?

As you learn to calm those emotions of frustration and anger, to acknowledge them, bless them and then release them in love, you will begin to do this in a broader sense, with others in your world. Dear One, you are capable of so much more than you realize. Start now, at this very moment. Understand that those internal feelings of fear, when transmuted to love, will provide opportunities for change in your life, wondrous change that will affect others.

Begin today. Release those grudges, those judgments, those fears. Replace them instead with forgiveness and loving kindness, towards yourself and others. Create an environment of love, rather than one of fear and anger. You can still promote change in a loving manner. For there is much power in love, more so than in fear. It begins with you, Dear One.

Sit, reflect and bless, yourself and others. Send out waves of loving kindness rather than fear or anger. Understand that the current of life is taking you exactly where you need to go in order to reach your greatest heights. Allow the currents to steer you forward and instead of complaining, be still and observe how you are reacting. Choose to come from your heart and have faith that all is well.

Choose peace. Breathe peace in and out with every breath.

Choose love. Breathe love in and out with every breath.

What happens next may surprise you, Dear One.

Allow the power within to emerge in its gentlest way.

You are One with the Source of All That Is; a reservoir of pure light and love.

Shine, love and change the world.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Personal Musings

My computer died a few days ago. And so, I am in the library posting this weekly blog. I decided that instead of the usual message, I would get more personal and tell you a bit about my summer.

As many of you know, I am a blueberry farmer and we just finished an eight and a half week season, picking over 3800 pounds of berries. It was a bumper crop this year, despite an artic freeze this spring, when the temps went down to 10 degrees, very rare for North Carolina. Some blueberry farms a little south of me didn’t even open this year because of it. I suspect that their blossoms were further opened than mine, making them more vulnerable to the cold.

Why am I telling you these two things? Because as I reflect upon the past few months, I realize that any worry I may have had was needless. While other farmers scurried to protect their blossoms during that cold snap, I just called upon the fairies to protect my crop. I envisioned a warm blanket over them. I knew it was possible that I wouldn’t have any berries this summer. But not worrying about the outcome and trusting that all would be well, was the best thing I could do. (And honestly, I still do not excel at being free from worry, but I’m working hard on that!!)

The day my computer died, my morning meditation gave me the message that ‘all is well, not to worry’. I reflect upon that and wonder if I was being prepared for the upcoming challenge with the computer. They know me so well, my Tovarysh! But on the bright side, I got through my blueberry season with a functioning computer. And we were able to retrieve all the data from the failing hard drive. I may be without  connection for a few days, but maybe that is what I need as my body begins to recover from the season.

Do I still have a lot of farm work? You bet! But the pace will be slower as I transition from farmer to writer/teacher in the off-season. I can continue to watch the twin fawns come and go in the blueberry patch. There is a young buck too, a beautiful boy, who is part of the herd of deer who feast daily in that blueberry patch. Rabbits, too, who freeze at the sight of my dog. Lucky for them, she is getting older and no longer has the speed to catch them, though she gives it her best try.

The tobacco farmers near me are gearing up to harvest, as I am winding down. I always love this time, when I know that hard work is behind me and there is a massage waiting for me in the near future.

If there is one thing that farming has taught me, it is that I am not in control, and going with the flow is the path of least resistance. Mother Nature has taught me so much about the cycles of life. I feel so much a part of this natural world. I feel loved and protected and connected to something much larger than myself.

Thank you so much for following this blog. Hopefully, next week we will be back on-line. If not, I’ll use my imagination to come up with another way. Till then, allow yourself to be free.

Give yourself a respite from worry and fear. Believe me, I’m there with you, being given opportunities for growth daily.

Be well, My Dear Readers. Sending you all loving thoughts, my fellow travelers, on this physical journey.

Be At Peace

There is no need for chaos

There is no need for worry

For thee are in a purposeful life,

Able to shine thy light on all around thee.

Dear One, you have a radiance that emanates from within at all times. It may be clouded by negative emotions. It may be stilted by lack of trust and grace. But your radiance comes from within and has the ability to shine on all around you; envelope them now, with your radiance and your grace.

We remind you once again that you are a Divine Being. You, Dear One, are a Divine Being, one with the Source and All That Is. The web of connection exists in ways that you cannot begin to imagine from your human perspective. And yet, you trust the technology that connects you to others here upon this physical plane; invisible, yet capable of allowing you to communicate with others quite distant from you.

Is it such a great leap, then, to believe that there is yet another connection, invisible to most, which connects you to all of creation? As you continue to grow in this human condition, your ways of being continue to incorporate more of what is a natural state of being across the Universe. Your inspiration comes from other planes of existence, from memories of where you have existed prior to this incarnation.

Dear One, as you begin to better understand this connection, you will begin to treat all of creation with grace and respect; honoring the connections, the symbiotic relationship you have with all.  How you treat others, so you treat yourself. There is no other way, because of this connection.

Remember that the connection you have expands out from this physical plane. You have a connection with others with a higher perspective of life here and elsewhere. These others are sending you guidance every moment of your day. Yes, often it does not permeate that cloud around you due to negative emotions. But in those moments of quiet, those moments of peaceful existence, those moments when your mind rests during sleep, these are the times when guidance can more easily fill your being. Is it not then understandable why often your greatest inspirations come after you have rested your physical form?

If you can accept that there is an unseen world that surrounds you which is loving and supportive, you may begin to have more AHA moments during your day. Can you still that active mind of yours which fills you with only logical and often fearful thoughts? All is well, Dear One. You ride on a cushion of loving embrace, without even having the awareness of its existence. Trust that this is so.

Consider how you are influenced by events happening in places in your world you have never visited and yet, you are still affected. Then expand that thought beyond the physical, expand that thought beyond this immediate time period, including past, present and future. The complexity of existence is far too much to fathom with the human mind. But what we wish to convey is that all are connected and that love surpasses fear at all times.

For every fearful thought or event, there is a multitude of love in the Universe to counteract that fear. And as you continue to grow, you will become yet another who will help counteract that fear with the love you radiate from your inner Source.

You, Dear One, are such a vessel of love with great potential to change your world. It begins with you. It always has. And you always have had loving support from the unseen world. You are the hub of a wheel with love coming from each spoke that connects to you. You are a harp with multiple strings creating beautiful music. If there is one discordant note, the others are there to continue the melody in all of its beauty.

You, Dear One, are loved beyond measure.

You, Dear One, are powerful beyond your imagination.

You, Dear One, are securely connected to all of creation.

Honor these truths. Accept these truths and step forward with grace and love.

For you, Dear One, have nothing to fear.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Clarity

Open your eyes

Open your heart

And allow the truth of existence

To enter into your consciousness.

It begins with trust and love.

Dear One, you are being given the opportunity at this time to begin to see things as they really are. Can you set aside your preconceived notions about life, about others, and observe without bias, observe only with love?

For such a long time, many of you have moved through your lives with blinders on, with glasses colored by your bias, seeing only what you wished to see. The time is now for you to start afresh, as a young babe, and to view your world as if for the first time. For this world, the entire universe is not static, but forever moving, stretching and re-adjusting. It responds to you and how you see your world. Can you now see things differently and begin to make the changes necessary for all to live in grace and love?

The human mind, the human condition, supports a stagnant way of viewing life, as if it never changes. But consider how much you personally have changed and grown over your lifetime. Others do also, which requires you to look anew every day at those in your life, in your world, who affect the progress of this physical plane.

We have told you before how you create your own world, your own life, because of the power you have within, as co-creator with the Source of All That Is. Consider this as you look upon your world every day. Do you see forward movement or retreat and regression? Can you even make a judgment about this as your view is extremely limited, with the human perspective? You are unable and never were meant to see the entire picture, from the vantage point that we have, as we view the broader mosaic of life upon your plane.

Dear One, have you not in the past found yourself backed into a corner by your own actions, unable to gracefully move forward due to Ego? Can you not see that others often do the same and require your grace and forgiveness to remove themselves from their trapped situation? How much an act of kindness would allow these situations to resolve with respect and pride intact!

You, you, are the saviors of others in moments like these. You have the power to change the tone of the interaction by how you respond. Can you remember that this lifetime for you is a learning experience and everyone present in this world has some important lessons to learn while they are embodied in their physical forms?

Can you begin to act with love and grace at all times during your day? We understand that this is asking much from you as you navigate the challenges in your life. But can you change your perspective from seeing them as challenges to, instead, seeing them as opportunities? Rather than choosing fear as your immediate response, choose love and grace, faith and trust, joy and gratitude.

You may respond and say ’I cannot do this’. Perhaps the more accurate response is ’I will not do this’. Reflect upon this, Dear One. Ask for help in freeing yourself from the tendrils of fear as you move through your day. You still do not believe you are worthy of the power given to you. Believe us when we tell you that, indeed, you ARE worthy and it begins with changing your perspective of your personal journey.

Dear One, you are never alone. You are our charges and we are with you at all times. It is impossible for any other possibility because of the web of connection. Being in this physical world is difficult, we understand, for these physical forms suggest separateness, when the exact opposite is true.

Trust yourself and begin to change how you see your world. Act with grace and allow others the opportunity to move forward with grace. This might involve compromise, forgiveness or support for others in releasing themselves from a cornered position. You have been there also, Dear One. Instead of judging, offer a supportive hand and see how life changes.

You all are loved beyond measure, for your hearts are joined to ours. You are worthy of this love and are more powerful than you realize. Change begins with you, in how you choose to see and navigate through this physical world.

Choose love.

Choose grace.

Choose faith and trust in yourself and in the All That Is.

For you are part of an expansive consciousness filled with love.

Dear One With All of Thee.

All is Well

Can you trust these words?

Despite all that you see around you

Can you trust that all is well

And that your life is unfolding exactly as it should?

Dear One, it can be difficult for you to view your life and the world around you and still accept the words that we say to you. All is well. For you see strife, inequality, suffering, greed and many other challenging components of the human condition occurring around you. Can you trust enough to believe that all is well?

It depends on the perspective that you take as you walk through your world. You can view the happenings as terrible injustices, or you can see opportunities for growth. For each occurrence of a perceived negative condition is an opportunity for someone to step up and make a difference; to change their way of walking through this world.

Each occurrence can be an impetus for someone to make a conscious choice to contribute loving kindness to this world; to counteract the greed and suffering. If the world in which you lived was without these challenges, what would the purpose be for existing here upon this physical plane?

You, Dear One, are a participant in a world that is inter-connected with all of creation. And yet, by perceiving this world only through your human senses, you are failing to see all that is occurring on an energetic level. We have told you before that you are energetic beings, temporarily embodying these physical forms for the purpose of your own personal growth.

The choice is yours, whether or not you will participate and share the gifts you have been given, in order to raise the vibration of this physical plane; or to sit back, criticize and judge what is occurring without getting involved. This is your choice.

You have been given the perfect form, placed in the perfect location, and given the most perfect gift to use in your life to help others. You have the power to change your world, if only by spending moments each day sending loving energy out to those around you.

Can you walk through this world without judgment of how others live their lives? Can you instead treat all of creation with respect and gratitude for all that they offer you? Yes, even if they are challenges that force you to action you did not want to take. You are ever powerful. You are filled with love. Begin by being kind to yourself and trusting that you have everything that you need to move forward in the most perfect way.

Do not become dismayed by your perception of lack in your personal life. It is so easy to focus on that which you feel you do not have, rather than realizing all that has been provided for you. It might be as simple as a spot of shade on a hot and sunny day or a place to rest your body after a hard day’s work.

Dear One, open your eyes and see what you have in your life, which serves you daily. Know that whatever comes your way, you will survive; perhaps not with the outcome you intended, but certainly with the personal growth needed to move you forward.

Trust that your unseen companions are but a breath away; ask for help when you need it and they will provide it. Reflect on all the time spent worrying about that which never occurred. Know that your human mind cannot fathom all the possible outcomes to a situation, that many of the outcomes are better than you could ever have imagined.

Be patient with yourself and with others. Remember that you all are on this journey together; each of you has specific lessons you chose to learn this lifetime. Understand that synchronicities are but an avenue to get you to where you need to be next. Perfectly situated for a perfect outcome.

Dear One, no matter what occurs to you in this lifetime, please know that you are loved and are never abandoned. We have told you before that it is impossible for you to be alone, even though your physical senses may not be able to perceive this truth.

You are a part of an eternal web of connection, always linked to the Source and never alone.

Dear One, trust that all is well, even though it may not appear that way at this very moment.

Trust that the cogs in the wheel of life are constantly moving you forward.

Choose to move forward with grace, with love and with kindness.

For like attracts like and you will be the recipient of that which you share with others.

 

You are a Dear One, precious to us, held close to our hearts.

You are one with the Source, at all times, at ALL times.

And truly, All Is Well with You.

All is well.

Patience and Trust

patience and trust

expressions-of-nature.com

Do not hold your breath in anticipation of what is to come

Instead breathe deeply and slowly

Allowing yourself to align

With the rhythm of the Universe

Gently, calmly and peacefully.

Dear One, your human mind wants everything yesterday. You require prior knowledge of future events in order to prepare and plan. And yet, all that is needed is patience and trust, that all is unfolding exactly as it should. Have you not yet realized that you are part of a force much larger than anything that you can imagine with your human mind?

Until you allow yourself to become a part of the All That Is, your mind will continue to attempt to control your world in an unproductive fashion. Rather than trying to force an outcome, can you not instead allow it to unfold at its own speed? Do you not understand how each event is the result of many synchronous and simultaneous interactions; some of which you will never be aware; some which seem completely unrelated; and some which appear insurmountable from your human perspective.

You are a part of a wondrous matrix of life that spans the entirety of creation. Even so, your contributions are important and necessary, to allow for the expansion of the Universe. Where you begin is to become more aware of the connections you have with others, with Nature and with the unseen world.

Can you become more aware of the synchronicities in your life? Can you begin to trust your intuition, that gut feeling which gently directs you forward? Can you just pause, take a breath, and give gratitude for all that you have, rather than focus on your perceived lack in this world?

Dear One, start right now in this very moment. Take a deep breath and release the fears, the stresses and the worries that fill your mind. Go within and feel the connection of the soles of your feet upon the ground. Take deep measured breaths and breathe love in and out with each inhalation and exhalation. See the visions before you on that screen that exists just behind your eyes. You say you see nothing? Look again. For it is not just blackness, but tiny points of light, some colored, some static, some moving, but all connecting you to the all of creation.

Send your worries down to Mother Earth through the soles of your feet. Feel her strength rising up through your legs, supporting you and give gratitude to her for being there for you in ways you will never understand. For she is a part of you, as you are a part of her; a symbiotic relationship created in love, nurtured and empowered by love.

Do you not feel calmer already? Open your eyes and look at your surroundings. Can you see the points of light surrounding you, enveloping you in their light and sharing with you the knowledge that you need at this very moment in time?

You are one integral piece of the mosaic of life and all is moving forward exactly as it should. Can you trust that all is well and that your current life experience is one providing gentle growth, if you choose to accept the gift of it? Remember that your lessons are provided to you in numerous ways and it is your choice how many times you require them to come to you before you accept them and trust the results.

Dear One, you are surrounded by those who wish to help you move forward in the gentlest of ways. These are your unseen helpers coming to you in many forms as they attempt to get your attention and gently guide you forward. Every one of you has this and your life would be so much easier if you allow it to unfold in its most natural way, rather than trying to force a certain result. For remember, that your human perspective is very limited in seeing how certain events are very positive, when the immediate result appears so negative.

Trust and have patience. Accept who you really are and your place in the entirety of creation. Allow yourself the gift of help and assistance as you use your intuition and begin to notice the synchronicities in your life.

You have such potential.

You have such power.

You are filled with an unlimited source of love.

Stop, take a pause from the chaos around you and trust.

All is well, Dear One.

Dear One with All of Thee.
