You are the Change

Change begins with you

In how you view your world

In how you see yourself.

In how you love

All who cross your path.

Dear One, realize that you have the power, the strength and the resolve, to change your world from this moment on. See yourself through our eyes; one connected to the All with all the knowledge and strength of the Oneness. It lies within you. Allow it to emerge from its dormancy. Allow it to emerge with all of its passion and love, and begin to change the world.

The time is now, Dear One, for you to take that leap of faith, in yourself and in the All. The time is now for you to move forward in love. The time is now for you to recognize that flame of love which lives within you. The time is now for change and you are the instrument of Universal growth.

The experiences that you have had in your lifetime have only made you stronger. You are here today, living and breathing and reflecting because you know that there is something more, something more than you have been taught.

That something more is the power within you. That something more is the strength that comes with your connection to the All. That something more is the love that is yearning to emerge from within your heart.

You are one of the leaders of this change. You have been searching and the answer reflects back to you when you look in a mirror. See past that physical form as it melts away and look within at the brilliant light which is your true essence. The human form is just a vehicle for you to use for this physical lifetime. And it serves you well. It has been designed especially for you to give you the experiences required on your journey.

And now you have reached a place where you can begin to change your life, your world. You are not alone in this, Dear One. You are surrounded by many loving beings who are guiding you forward. You are joined by many sharing this lifetime with you for the same purpose; to learn and to grow. They need not be geographically near to you to help you take that first step. Remember the energetic web of connection that joins the All.

Sit, acknowledge the presence of others, just like you, who are reaching for the stars, who are yearning for change. Sit and reach out to them from your heart and connect with them this day and every day forth. The power within you connected to the power of others who are awakening is beyond your imagination. That power resides in love and the sharing of that love across continents, across realms, throughout the Universe.

You are the element of change, Dear One. It begins with you and you are NOT alone. Take comfort in that. Take comfort in the truth that there are many others, just like you, who are beginning to reach out to you to combine the power of love.

These are not the loud ones who speak across the airwaves. These are the quiet ones who reach across the waves of love and connection. They are the silent ones, quietly doing their work as you will do. No formal recognition, no celebrity acclaim, just a loving connection with you and the All.

Do not doubt this, Dear One, for you are a part of this movement of love and connection. Reach out and feel the energies of love that resonate within and around you. This is who you truly are and you are joined by multitudes of others on the same path. Reach forward for help to those ahead of you and extend your hand behind to help bring others forward.

This journey has never been a solo journey. And now is the time to recognize the camaraderie that you have with so many others sharing their love unconditionally.

The change begins with you

And others slowly awakening

To the power of love,

To the power of connection,

To the power of being

One with All of Thee.

The Embodiment of Love

embodiment of love

LoveHasWon.org

Love is not intangible

For you are love

Every breath you take exudes love,

Shares love between all of creation

And Thee.

Dear One, search not for love outside of thyself, for thee is love incarnate. And thee is one with all. And all of creation is the embodiment of love. Every cell in your body, every breath that you take, all come from love. For, in truth, that is all there is.

The human existence requires an illusion of duality in order for growth. For without challenges, your time here upon this plane would be unnecessary. Your true nature, the memories seated deep within you, belong to love. And to love is where you shall return after this physical journey is complete.

The mind is necessary for existing in a physical realm. How to function, how to solve a problem, how to survive in the harsh environment often present on this physical plane. For your human form is very fragile and the mind is meant to be used to provide ways to live comfortably on this physical journey.

But the mind has caused much suffering also. It remembers harsh words, compares levels of success and abundance and creates worry about past or future events. Indeed, planning is necessary for survival and reflection can help the process of personal growth. But the mind can take you only so far and the heart is where your true essence lies. And it has been overshadowed by the activity of the mind.

Love exists in your heart and can permeate your mind if allowed. As your species has grown over the centuries here upon this plane, the mind has been able to take you only so far. And it has led you astray, away from the power of your heart. Intuition, faith and trust, the loving connection between all living beings resides within your heart.

Mind takes you to the past or the future. Heart keeps you in the present. Mind calculates, compares and criticizes. Heart offers loving kindness. Mind worries about possibilities which may never occur in the future. Heart trusts that all will unfold exactly as it should. Mind requires words. Heart is able to send love with only a breath, a touch or through an energetic exchange.

Come back to your heart when love is embodied. We do not speak of the physical heart, but of the heart center, the energetic source of love within you all. That center does exist very near the physical heart area of your body and can work through your very being. You have felt the energy there and have described it as being ‘heartbroken’ or having your ‘heart swell with joy.’

Come back to your heart and begin to use the power of love which lies there. Allow mind to receive pulses of energy from your heart to soften the hardened crust of jealousy and judgment. The answers which you seek come from your heart. Do not follow mind’s search outside of yourself. Do not accept mind’s beliefs that all are not worthy of your love. Your heart knows that all are connected in love and that the search ends within your heart.

Can you make this shift and begin to listen to your heart’s song? So many are unsatisfied and unfulfilled with what mind has told them. Try then, listening to your heart instead. Trust and release fear of the future. Forgive the past and give gratitude for the challenges which brought you to where you stand today. Dear One, you are so much stronger than you think. You have more abundance than you see. And you have more power in creating your world, your future, than you realize.

It begins with allowing love to emerge from its imprisonment by the intellect of the mind. Be once more like a child, and view your world with wonder and awe. Replace judgment with compassion, anger with gratitude and fear with love. You are ready for this. The time is now to take a chance with love.

Go within and find the truth.

All the answers you seek are there.

Focus on what your heart speaks

And allow it to guide you forward.

You have reached the turning point

And the solution is love

Only love,

Dear One with All of Thee.

My Deer Ones

Deer hunting season in North Carolina ended on January 1st and I’m always happy to see it go. Don’t get me wrong. I understand that the deer population needs to be culled and many hunters do it responsibly and with respect. It is just hard for me to hear the gunshots or a pack of hunting dogs on a scent behind my property. I cannot think of anything more terrifying to a deer that a pack of dogs on its trail.

I know that some take refuge in a certain area of my land at night and I bless them in the morning when I see where they have bedded down. The truth is that I love these magnificent creatures and consider them MY deer.

These are the ones who come onto my land in the spring and leave their fawn for safekeeping as the doe go off to feed. I have come across these young, speckled fawn over the years. Once when I was quietly pruning blueberries, I almost stepped on one nestled in between the blueberry bushes.

Another fawn had a particularly challenging start to its life when my dog found it untended in the woods. I heard this scream and looked up to find a very young fawn being pulled out of the woods by my lab. No! You cannot kill Bambi!, I thought, and ran over to get my dog off of it. Separated and unharmed, the poor little fawn wobbled off down the slope to get away from this canine. I knew mom would find it and took the dog in the house.

A few weeks later, once again, I was outside working and heard that scream again. Sure enough, my dog grabbed that fawn for a second time. It was now a little older and stronger and after I separated them, it lay there panting for a few moments before it got up and calmly returned to the safety of the woods. Another close call for Bambi, but saved. I like to think my dog just wanted a playmate, but I also understand her hunting instinct and take no chances.

And yes, the story is not quite over. This fawn appeared once more a few weeks later. I noticed the mother first, grazing on the grass. Then I saw the fawn, much larger with fewer spots. It saw us too, but this time it just tossed its head and gracefully pranced out of range of the dog who found it twice before. I just laughed with the knowledge that it survived at least into its adolescent years.

They come, first one or two and then in larger groups into the blueberry patch to feed in summer. Does bring their fawns, some with twins, some accompanied by a buck. I don’t worry about it. There are enough berries for all of us. I realize that I am not the owner of this land, only the steward. And I am also not the only creature to call it home.

One summer, I watched three deer walk into the blueberry patch to feed. I went out onto the porch and whistled. All three deer came out of the patch, stood in a row with ears peaked, looking over at me. I could just hear them saying to me, ‘What? Can’t you see that we are feeding?’ I told them that I was just about to come out with the dog and thought it would be best if they left. And they did, begrudgingly. I’m sure they came back later to continue their dinner when they could do so undeterred by the ‘guard’ dog.

And so the cycle begins once more. Those who survived the hunt will return and leave their fawn for safe-keeping as they go off to feed. Later in the summer, I will see blue scat in the blueberry patch as they continue to enjoy the blueberries. Another year of living in harmony with MY deer on the farm.

The Beginning or the End?

Each and every day

Each and every moment

You can ask yourself this question

What is it that you choose

In this moment of time?

Dear One, change begins with you. You are the creator of your life and your world. You have the choice to sit back and allow life to come to you; or you can seize the moment and create the world, the life, that you want. It is up to you.

You mark the passage of time in seconds, minutes, hours, weeks, months, years. And yet time itself does not even exist. You remember the past and certainly can learn from the past. You plan for the future and strive to control personal or worldly events by your actions. And still you question the purpose, the effect, that your life has upon this world and beyond.

Reflect upon a flock of starlings, creating geometric forms in the sky as they gracefully fly together en masse, to and fro, never once colliding with each other. They fly in synchrony, with joy, with full abandon, following the currents as one, each contributing their part towards the final creation.

So too, with you, Dear One. You are part of a cosmic dance that moves across dimensions, far and wide. You are unaware of it when you use only your physical senses. But when you move into that meditative state of connection, you are able to touch on it, if only for a moment. Your soul, your higher self, knows the steps to this dance and tries to bring your consciousness along when you are in the physical realm.

There is a grace to the dance of creation, of which you are a part, and to which you contribute with each breath that you take. The challenge is to let go of that thinking mind and allow your higher consciousness to show you the way. Release and let go and then dance! The Universal song plays in your subconscious, giving you the beat, the rhythm, the flow to follow as you dance.

Dear One, remember that all you see with your physical eyes is an illusion, it is not the reality of your true existence. Can you instead see with your heart, from which the music comes? Be still and listen. Take time this day to reflect upon how far you have come. Give gratitude for the lessons and those who provided you the opportunities to learn. Bless all who have crossed your path.

The gauge of your growth is not whether you have lived up to your promises to do better, but whether or not you tried. This is not a time to begin another cycle of self-judgment and recrimination, but to savor the accomplishments that brought you to this very moment.

Reflection is encouraged, self-judgment is not. Compassion is encouraged, for yourself and for others. Engagement with others is encouraged as they have much to teach you about yourself and the way of being. Take a step forward in love, in faith and in strength.

End the feelings of self-doubt and perceived failures. Begin to notice how much you have changed and affected the lives of others. And remember that all interactions may not be joyful ones for all parties involved. But all interactions are opportunities for growth for all.

Accept the gift of life here upon this plane as one unavailable on any other plane or dimension. The unique mixture of all elements of this existence provide opportunities available nowhere else. Success is measured in whether you take that next step, that next breath, no matter what.

Developing faith in yourself and in the connection of all will help you on this journey. Close your eyes, focus on your breath and allow the love of the universe to embrace you. Worry not about the caliber of your achievements. Strive only to act in love, for this is your greatest asset. Always love.

Act and do not re-act.

Act in love always.

Listen for the universal song

In your heartbeat, in your breath, in your surroundings.

And move forward in dance

With faith that all will be well

No matter what happens.

You will always be loved

You will always be

One With All of Thee.

Remember

This is what happens when you leave a gopro out on the sea ice

Remember this day all the love which surrounds you

Remember those who have crossed your path

And bless them for their impact on your life.

Remember the connection that brings you

Strength, knowledge and guidance.

And remember who you really are,

An eternal being of light, created in love.

Dear One, do not allow your human mind to block out the truth of your existence. Do not allow your suffering to cause a permanent rift between you and your Source. Instead, embrace the love which surrounds you. Understand that suffering is only a step towards enlightenment.

Would you truly move forward on your own if you were safe and settled in your daily existence? Would you readily choose to leave behind stability and complacency in order to travel out of your personal comfort zone? This journey of yours includes forward movement which often must be initiated from an external source, be it from this realm or from another realm.

This is how your connection to the All works with you. Synchronistic encounters, creative tension in relationships or actions, many of which are challenging you to find the strength within to move forward. Dear One, your purpose here is not to settle into a protective trance and not emerge until you return home. You chose to come here to experience new challenges to ‘test your wings’, to see how well you could fly in the face of adversity and adventure.

There is no judgment or punishment involved in your path homeward. Quite the opposite, there is only loving support, watchful anticipation and gratitude for you as you go through this experiential existence. Do not doubt yourself or your worthiness for love. Understand that all of thee are being encouraged to ‘spread your wings’ and to fly with grace and love.

Understand the connection that you have with all of creation when situations arise that are challenging for you. Understand that all are a learning opportunity for you. You have the choice to engage in love or in anger. You have the choice to walk away with grace or in fear. Can you find the compassion within for others who are creating the tension and see them through a lens of love? Can you see others, even those who have been in your life for many years, can you see them as if for the first time?

The choice is yours whether to act or to re-act towards others. The choice is yours whether to practice self-love or self-judgment. The choice is yours whether to cower in doubt and fear or to take a chance with faith and courage. Whatever you choose, our love for you continues in all of its intensity. And whatever you choose, we will always provide another opportunity to grow and to soar.

Remember, Dear One, to breathe, to love and to allow time to just sit in silence and peace as often as you can. These quiet times allow you to re-connect with the All in a manner which will empower you with the strength and knowledge you need to move forward.

May you know love in its purest form.

May you accept this love and share it will all who cross your path.

Shake the mist from your eyes

And see clearly the magnificent light which surrounds you.

Feel the warmth of our embrace

As we love you unconditionally and support you on your journey home.

Know peace. Know Joy and share it with all who cross your path.

Dearest One with All of Thee.

 

The Light of Dawn

light of dawn

visitmysmokies.com

Have you seen the sunrise in all of its glory?

It begins with a muted hue of light

Bursting into a tapestry of red, purple, pink, orange.

Spreading across the horizon.

A precursor to the expansion of light

Eradicating the last vestiges of darkness.

So too, with you,

 And your awakening to who you really are.

Dear One, how often have you seen the dawn and reveled in its beauty, in the hope that comes with the light? The darkness fades as the fire in the sky emerges slowly and then dramatically fills your field of vision with color and beauty.

When you see this every day, consider the similarities to your own personal awakening, as your internal flame bursts forth to fill you with hope. In the same way, your light fills your immediate surroundings and beyond, reaching further than you realize. Your personal light diminishes the shadows of fear as it rises further, joining others and their personal flames of spirit and love and hope.

You are the solution. You are the source of love. You are the impetus for change. You have the power to create a world of love with a brilliant light that emanates from within to all who cross your path. You bathe in the light of others who wish to share their hope and love with you. The brilliant dawn you see every day is a reflection of you and how far-reaching your offerings of love can be.

You, Dear One, have that fire within and it is yearning to emerge from behind the clouds of insecurity and fear. It is there now, seeking a way to reach others. It may be liberated with a conscious decision on your part to share your love, your vulnerabilities, your connection with others. Or, it may seep out through the wounds you nurse, those cracks in your external veneer that show others that you, too, have suffered and survived.

You are not alone in your suffering, just as you are not alone in your strength. Do not focus on the suffering, but on the emergence of strength that is a result of that suffering. For every trial you have encountered on this personal journey of yours has empowered you more. You have not failed. You have survived, you have thrived, and you have the experience to help others.

Your own life experiences offer you a reason for compassion for others. Rather than judging others, consider how they are just like you; learning, growing, seeking love and connection. For you all have come from the same Source. You all have memories of that intimate connection with All. And you all seek a way to find that connection once again in this world of illusions.

Allow that internal flame to emerge as a beacon to others, as a source of love and compassion towards others who are just like you. Compassion is what connects each and every one of you. For it cannot exist in the same breath with judgment. It cannot exist in the same breath with fear. It can only exist in conjunction with love.

When you doubt yourself, look towards the dawn and remind yourself that it reflects back to you that which is your true nature. That which is the true nature of all of creation, of all those with whom you interact every day.

Move your focus from that mind of yours which sees fault and flaws and fears. Move your focus instead to your heart, that part of you which knows only love and compassion. See the flame within and accept that you are at the dawn of your own awakening. The time is now, Dear One. You are ready. You need not question whether you have prepared enough. For the world needs you now to allow your internal light to ignite others to action and awakening.

Reflect upon this as you begin your day, as you see the majesty of the Mother as she stretches outward from the horizon time and time again. She moves across your globe encouraging all to awaken with her. Her light never ceases, just as your light continues to shine, though often hidden by doubt.

Emerge in all of your glory, Dear One.

Trust that you can make a difference

With every breath that you take.

Share your light with others

And see how they awaken as the connection grows.

Be at peace, Dear One.

For you are the embodiment of love and strength and compassion.

You are an extension of our love.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Compassionate Detachment

In these times of change

Can you show compassion

Without allowing your emotions

To rise to uncontrollable heights?

Dear One, there are many changes occurring not only upon your physical plane, but throughout all of creation. Many of you are only able to observe what is occurring in front of you. But you can be certain that energetic shifts and wondrous changes are occurring in the heavens and beyond.

These are the times of which many have spoken for centuries, a time of change never before seen. For all has fallen into place from the location of the celestial bodies to the energetic vibrations in your physical realm. This is a part of the growth of the cosmic consciousness and you have been placed where you are in order to observe and help move this change forward.

But your human emotions are very powerful and often mask the wonder behind the current climate in your world. Viewing the daily events can be debilitating and immobilizing. This is why we encourage you to move forward with compassionate detachment. What does this mean?

Can you be a neutral observer of life? Can you prevent your emotions from clouding a true view of what is occurring in your world and beyond? Can you come from your heart in your actions rather than from your mind?  You are a Divine being who was created in love, who is filled with love and whose natural state of existence is to share love with all. This you can deny no longer as the energetic vibrations throughout eternity are rising at an accelerated rate.

When you come from your heart, rather than your mind, you will cease to judge. You will cease to re-act from sheer emotion. Instead you will act in love. You will send love throughout your day, with each breath that you take. You will fill your immediate environment with the higher vibration of love, rather than fear, or hate, or judgment.

Detaching from an emotional reaction to events observed will empower you to be that loving Divine being, your true nature. Settling the chaos which is agitated by a purely emotional response will allow you to see more clearly, to act with more resolve and to move forward with a calmer demeanor.

It is up to you to rise above the fray, to not engage, but to soothe the frenetic energies as they continue to transition to a higher vibration. For those who have spent little time outside of chaos and fear, this energetic change can cause even more fear and erratic behavior. For this reason, it is so important for those of you who understand the difference between love and fear to be a calming presence in your world.

The energetic shift has begun and will not stop. But you can help by tempering your own energies with breath, with prayer, with meditation. It is in this way that you can help stabilize what is now occurring across all realms.

Do not jump into the boiling pot and add to the chaos. Instead, turn down the flame with your quiet presence. We are not suggesting inaction. We are urging against re-action. By equilibrating your own vibrations, by accepting your own Divine nature, you will be a calming presence to those around you.

You can still act to help create the changes you seek. But do it with compassionate detachment rather than with emotional fervor. Understand that many are desperately trying to stay on course to a destination that is no longer attainable in this changing sea of energies. Holding onto old ways of being is no longer possible. This is why your quiet presence during this universal change is so important. This is how you guide others forward, those who shake in fear, those without faith, those who hold onto perceived power that is truly impotent.

Dear One, rise up in love and compassion.

Do not allow the emotional fervor to steer you off course.

Allow love to be your map to peace.

Approach these changes with compassionate detachment

And lead the way forward through this chaos.

You are needed at this time to be who you truly are

A Divine being who is One with All of Thee.
