You are a part of a Community of One

One with All That Is.

It is from this community

That you receive your support

And your lessons.

Honor it and all who are a part of it.

Dear One, you do not stand alone here on your personal journey. You never have. For you are a part of an infinite Community of One. This community is composed of all of creation, all sentient beings, who exist here in your physical realm and beyond. And it is from this community that you draw your knowledge, your support and your lessons.

It is necessary to remind you of this connection as your world appears to becoming more polarized, more judgmental and more biased. You have a role to play in this transformation, either in supporting this discourse which is occurring, or in helping to stop the downward spiral which immobilizes so many.

You, Dear One, you, chose to be here upon this physical plane at this momentous time of change and transformation. You chose to be a part of this, to be physically present, so that you could interject your influence upon the outcome of this time of transition.

Every breath, every action you take, will contribute to the forward movement of life upon this physical plane and subsequently of the collective consciousness. Do not hide from this truth. Do not allow yourself to be cowered into inaction. You have much more power than you realize and we are here to help galvanize you into rising into your own personal power.

Individual challenges allow you to grow personally. Upon reflection, many of you will acknowledge that the times which were your most trying, were also the times that encouraged you to draw upon that latent strength within and allow you to face head-on that which you first feared. The result was empowering and often surprising as you often do not recognize the depth of your connection with the power, the knowledge, of the All.

Dear One, open your hearts, open your minds, and come into every situation with curiosity and confidence that you will always be shown the solution to any conflict that presents itself. Observe and be still as you allow your intuition, that connection with the All, to access the situation and offer possible actions to resolve what troubles you most.

Understand that the Community of One has incredible power and unlimited potential, more than any individual can offer. And understand that you are a member, a contributor to this vast well of knowledge and strength that is shared across infinity. Do not doubt your involvement with this community as you are a lifetime member.

You have spent time in realms beyond this physical one you currently inhabit. And communication is different in each and every one of these realms. You have experienced communication in more ways than the physical languages you use today. And it is with these other forms of communication that you can reach others upon this physical plane who are unable to hear you with their physical receptors.

Allow the memories of these existences to slowly emerge as you see the commonality that exists between all races, all genders, all species here upon this physical plane. The Community of One was built on love. It draws its strength from the existence of love. And it communicates best through the language, the energy of love.

Send love, Dear Ones, send love to all who walk upon your sphere of existence. Send love out into the ethers to travel far and wide, encompassing all, reaching into all corners and crevices where fear hides. Send love to raise the vibration of this physical plane to better allow higher planes of existence to support you in your forward progress.

The realms are coalescing and the friction resulting from this will cause strife until an equilibrium is reached. And that equilibrium will be reached quicker if you do your part to help raise the vibrations by inculcating loving energy into every fabric of life here upon this physical plane.

You are indeed an integral part of the Community of One.

Your help is needed to support forward movement of all of creation.

Do not doubt this or yourself.

See yourself as we see you,

Capable, loving and the purveyor of strength and change.

A Divine being here by design to help with this wondrous transition.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Send Love

send love

Brierley Heart by Jen Sneddon Holden http://www.flickr.com

With every breath you take

Send love

To no one in particular

Send love

And allow it to permeate and encompass

The fear and hatred that fills the air.

Today this is a personal message from me, the scribe. Or perhaps I should say it is in my own words, for I am only relaying what I was told in a moment of utter despair.

The recent news has been so disturbing to me, what those in leadership roles are saying and doing, or not saying and doing. The climate of unrest and fear that is permeating our lives, permeating the very air we breathe and affecting us in ways we don’t even realize.

I spoke to a dear friend the other day, a woman who is model of compassion and kindness. She told me how she has this underlying feeling of anger that has caused her to react in a way very unlike her. And she was ashamed.

I too, have had this knot in my stomach which has settled in since the logging began behind my house 3 months ago. The timber has been cut, the beautiful hardwood trees that I talked with every day are gone and only giant matchsticks of unwanted timber remain scattered across 60 acres of wasteland. And although I am making peace with my immediate surroundings, the knot remains. And I’ve realized that I have become over-sensitized, as it now becomes inflamed when I hear what is going on in the world.

I went to bed two nights ago feeling sickened by what I heard on the news, the incitement of fear and hatred from someone who should know better. I couldn’t sleep. And then I heard the owl outside my window. It has moved closer recently because so many trees are now gone. And he was hooting in that rhythmic fashion, answering the call of a fellow owl further away. It calmed me in the same fashion the cooing of a dove does during the waking hours.

I felt the love coming from the owl and realized that Mother Nature was still alive and well. And that she had only love for me and us all. That no matter what we humans do on our circuitous paths back to our Source, that she was still there and sending me a message through that owl. I was lulled to sleep by the gentle lullaby of that dear owl.

The next morning, I sat cross-legged as I began my daily meditation. I began singing the tones as I often do before a verbal message comes through. This time my dog joined in as she sat directly in front of me, peering into my open mouth as I sang in full voice. I was asking in my mind, What can I do? How can I help? And the answer was simply, SEND LOVE.

It became very clear to me that what I can do, what we all can do, is to just send love with each breath we take. We don’t have to understand the reasons for these actions, we don’t have to judge. We just need to send love. For love is greater than fear and hatred and it will begin to encompass and overcome it. Imagine what would happen if more and more people do just that during their day. Notice your breath and send love.

I understand that many are not as consciously aware as I am of the shifts in energy that surround us every day. But we all are affected by this current climate of fear. Like my friend, it can affect our actions in ways we don’t even realize. Take responsibility, make amends if needed, but understand that we all have to raise ourselves higher, through this heaviness which affects us all.

Can you go on faith, that doing what I was told would make a difference in this world; that such a simple action can make such a tremendous difference? It can, I know it can and I encourage you to do so. Of course, if you feel called to take further action, follow your heart and do that. But so many feel helpless and overwhelmed in this current climate. And it is to you I say, Send love.

I’ll be back again in a few days with another message in the voice to which you have become accustomed to hearing. Thank you for being the sensitive souls you are. To you and to the world I send all my love.

The Leap of Faith

leap of faith

Galaxypicture .com

Can you trust yourself enough?

Can you trust the All enough?

Can you trust that you are surrounded by loving hands?

Ready to catch you if you fall?

Dear One, can you believe in yourself and in the All enough to take that leap of faith? For it is the next step on your journey. And truth be told, Dear One, you will not fall. Instead, you will rise, gently but steadily as you allow fear to fall from your shoulders. It has been the weight around your neck, holding you back from your next destination, that of self-empowerment and love.

You have been on this journey many years and many of you are tired and confused. You feel as if your life has been without purpose, when nothing is further from the truth. For you do not see yourself from our vantage point, as we cheer you on with each forward step you take. Oh, Dearest One, do not stop now when you are so close to achieving your next wondrous success on this personal journey you are taking.

Review your life and allow those moments of joy, buried under the mounds of self-criticism, to surface once again. Allow the note of a song, a glimpse of nature, a taste or a touch, to take you back to that forgotten moment of joy you experienced. There are many of them, you know. But they are lost in the chaos of self-deprecation and self-judgment.

Take a moment and remember. Allow your mind to be free and open yourself up to those times which brought you joy. Do this often as you continue your journey of remembrance of who you really are, a being of joy and love. Yes, there are wounds experienced along the way. But how can you reach out to others who are wounded, if you do not understand how it feels to be wounded yourself? Consider them badges of resilience in a world of duality and suffering.

It begins with you, Dear One, and how you view your life. Can you forgive, be grateful for the lesson and move on? Can you bathe those wounds in the nectar of love and see the light begin to shine forth through them? You cannot have compassion for others if you refuse to give it to yourself. For those in your life are but a reflection of you, a wounded soul courageous enough to continue the journey. Now supported by the knowledge learned from those experiences, stronger than ever, resilient and humbled.

You have come this far and are capable of soaring high above your greatest aspirations. Do not limit yourself in what you think is possible. For the possibilities are far grander than you can fathom. Take that leap of faith, without expectation, only with love, and see where it takes you. This physical existence is an adventure in possibilities. And yes, you have the choice of taking the path of love or the path of fear. Which do you choose?

You cannot be certain of the outcome of any step that you take. The only certainty is that it will move your forward on your journey of self-discovery. Do you have the courage to surrender and cease the old patterns of behavior which have not served you? Embrace the opportunities laid before you to help you shed the heavy cloaks of fear. For indeed, the cloaks did not protect you, they only covered the light that shines from within.

Allow the light, that brilliant light within, to shine, through your badges of resilience, through every pore of your body. Allow others to see your wounds, your vulnerabilities, and they will recognize a kindred spirit on a path similar to their own. Be at one with those who cross your path. They are there for a reason, Dear One. Love them without hesitation, as we encourage you to love yourself.

Call upon us and look for our help, our reply, in the synchronous experiences in your life. Remember that we come to you in ways to which you would be most receptive, in ways that are the least threatening to you. And many are our messengers, being the presence in your life that is needed at this very moment. See us in everyone around you. See us in the mirror reflecting back to you. Loving beings filled with light and joy.

Do not seek certainty, for it will never come. Instead, have faith that the choice you make is Divinely inspired to place you exactly where you need to be next; as a messenger, as a recipient of a message, or both. For remember that you play many roles in this life and each one is necessary for the forward movement of the All.

Acknowledge your place in this world

As a member of the community of One.

One with All, One of Love, One of Courage and Strength.

You can be certain of this.

You are never alone and you are surrounded by love.

Always.

On the Cusp

on the cusp

nebulagalore.tumblr.com

Do you see it?

Can you feel it?

You are on the cusp of change.

Do not allow fear to detain you any longer.

For it is time to remove your blinders

And see clearly once again.

Dear One, you are on the cusp of change. Feel it, see it, hear it, taste it. For it is there in the wings, awaiting your introduction to bring it centerstage in your life. Draw back the curtains and invite it forward in all of its glory, with all of its empowerment and with its knowledge flowing forth from deep within you.

You have seen much in these years spent on this physical plane. Much of it has been challenging to watch, to experience. And yet, if you did not see the darkness, how could you yearn for the light? The duality has been necessary for you to mark the contrast between the extremes of existence. You have experienced both and you have emerged wounded, yet emboldened with the realization of which path you choose as you continue your journey.

You are on the cusp of understanding the purpose of your existence here upon this plane. Just as a young babe takes those first unsteady steps with conviction, so too, you have chosen to continue the journey in spite of being unsure of what lies ahead. You have come so far.

Honor how far you have come. Honor the scars you may have accumulated in the process. Honor the strength that has allowed you to forge through despite the challenges. And honor the lessons which filled you with the desire for a better life, a gentler life, a life of love over fear.

Breathe deeply and allow that breath of yours to carry you yet further on your journey. For that breath will bring with it the knowledge that stirs deep within you, ready to emerge to guide you forward. That breath connects you to every other organism upon this physical plane which breathes in unison with you.

Honor the connection you have with others. Can you raise your perspective and see the beauty of the movement of all of physical existence in unison? Just as your winged creatures create glorious forms above you as they move in mass, in synchrony. Many connected as one in forward movement. So too, with you. Connected as one, you are the creative juices flowing through the veins of the Mother.

For you to see this unity in form, your perspective must be from a higher vantage point. You are at the cusp, Dear One, ready to raise your own vibrations so that you are able to see the Oneness of All. You are threads on the same tapestry of life. You are molecules of life moving in and out, betwixt and among all other sentient beings. You are not one island in a sea of angst, but an archipelago connected and solidly grounded beneath the visible lines of sight.

You are on the cusp of great change and this truth brings shudders of joy and excitement throughout the Universe. Listen for that voice within which shall guide you forward. Feel the loving embrace which gently picks you up and rights you when you stumble. See kindred spirits revealing themselves through the eyes of your fellow travelers. If they show fear and trepidation, extend your hand out to them and embrace them with all of your being.

Love, self-awareness and shared experiences are propelling you forward on this journey of remembrance. And with each new day, a spark of recognition of truth, your truth, the Universal truth, will flare within you. You are ready for this. You have covered many miles to reach this point in your journey and you stand on the cusp of remembrance, of change.

Take the risk. Take the leap. Know that a safety net is always there for you in the loving embrace which concurrently cradles you with affection while gently urging you forward. Forward to freedom from your old ways of being.

Trust yourself and the process of your remembrance.

Love yourself and all who share this journey with you.

Embrace what is coming and see it only through the filters of love.

Love deeply and unconditionally.

Feel the joy and freedom of self-awareness.

And know peace, Dear One.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Embrace Your Life

There is a richness

To the human experience

Unknown on any other realm.

Embrace your life

And the knowledge it brings to you

And to the All.

Dear One, the opportunities for growth which you experience here upon this plane are unique and unknown anywhere else in the Universe. This is one reason why you chose the human condition, despite all of its challenges and limitations. For these are what help you to growth, to expand, beyond that which you brought with you as you entered this realm.

Do not hide behind the curtain which you have placed around you for protection, for Dear One, you are greater than that. You are more powerful than you realize and it is time for you to spread your wings. Allow them to unfurl, for they have been sequestered long enough. Allow them to unfurl and rise to the heights you are capable of reaching. No longer let that voice in your head hold you back. It is time to soar.

Each and every one of you has the capacity within you to rise to your fullest potential here upon this plane. As the veil between worlds has thinned, you have had glimpses of what is possible. And yet, many of you discount what you see, what you feel, what you hear, as an anomaly, a quirk of nature. When in fact, Dear One, this is a gateway to discovering your true nature beyond the limitations of the human existence.

Open yourself up to new experiences, take a chance and embrace what comes to you. Embrace those who enter your life and begin to exchange the knowledge each of you has to share. Do not discount anyone as a teacher, for all who cross your path have something to teach you. As well, you have something to teach them, not consciously, but your soul remembers and will allow that transfer to occur.

The time is now for your behavior to change. Be bold, be confident that you can handle whatever, whoever, comes your way. We are behind you. Dear One, the Entirety of Being is behind you, encouraging you onward for the growth of the All. You are in a unique position to contribute to the expansion of the Universe in a way only possible from this physical plane.

You have been given time to test the waters, to trust yourself and your life as best as you could up until this point. But the time has arrived for you to take that deep breath and jump into the life you were meant to live. Worry not, for there is always a safety net below you as you lift off for destinations previously unknown to you. It is time, Dear One. No longer crawl, no longer walk, but fly. Soar high above the perceived limitations you have chosen to believe up until this point. Allow them to drop away and see how much higher you soar as your load is lightened.

This world is a teaching ground, a learning ground, for only those courageous enough to take the journey. And you are one of the courageous ones to have chosen this path. It is time, Dear One. Fill your heart, your mind, your body with the armor of love, for that is all you need to move forward. Trust in yourself, for you are such a wondrous being. Spread the seeds of love as you soar over this world. Extend your hand to others still too timid to take that leap of faith.

Linger no longer. Lick your wounds no longer, for it is through them that your light shines in all of its brilliance. They have filled your coffers with experience which will allow you to show compassion for others who have not yet seen their own light reflected back to them in the mirror.

Go out into your world and embrace your life. It is time. Be at peace with how far you have come. And if you still do not see your progress, spend time reflecting on your life, the lessons learned and the reserve of knowledge those lessons brought to your consciousness.

Dear One, this strength, this power, has been there all along, within you, waiting for the call to burst forth and to reveal to you the true depth of your being. Your connection to the All is strong, has always been strong. You have known this since your birth, somewhere deep within your being. But the time is now for that knowledge to surface so that you can continue your journey with confidence and strength.

Know the joy of being who you truly are.

Understand the potential provided by this physical existence.

Share the knowledge you have with others

And accept what they have to offer you in return.

You are not an island

But an integral piece of a universal tapestry of love.

You ARE love incarnate.

Embrace that love and share it with others.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Walking the Tightrope of Life

tightrope

roweig.deviantart.com

It is a balance, this life you lead

Between love and fear,

Between worry and pure abandon.

How do you remain centered

In the midst of chaos?

Dear One, you are pulled in many directions on this personal journey of yours. There are so many opportunities to choose fear over love or to worry needlessly about perceived failures, yours and others. How can you navigate this maze of emotions, misperceptions and challenges?

It begins with love and acceptance. It continues with healing breath and ends with gratitude; gratitude for the lesson, for the opportunity, and for the support, seen and unseen, which brought you to this end.

As you move through your day, your life, do not forget the unseen forces who travel with you wherever you go. They are with you at every turn you take, gently guiding you forward to a destination at which your magnificence will shine.

The first step is to pause and pull in the love of the Universe. Breathe in the loving calm offered to you with that cleansing breath. Turn off the recording which plays in your mind, over and over, falsely pointing out the failure, the misdeed or the cause for worry. Choose peace instead and counteract this recording with your own mantra, I choose peace.

When you reach a calmer state, review the cause of your distress and look for the lesson in it. Is it a check on how far you have come in changing an unwanted pattern from long ago? Are you looking at it objectively or from the perspective of your wounded soul? Seek out help from those who know you so well, from those who can help you pull back the blinders allowing you to see more clearly.

You are not alone on this journey and are not expected to walk this path alone. The truth is that unseen forces are helping to orchestrate the lessons you chose to learn in this lifetime. This is done by putting people in your life who will help you move forward, either by creating the tension, or by helping you work through it to the solution.

None of this is done with malice, only with love. For you are the courageous one to have come here to this physical plane to learn and share the lessons placed before you. Dear One, self-discovery requires courage and patience, with yourself and with others. For every interaction is a potential lesson for all involved, should they choose to learn it.

Can you move from a place of self-doubt or self-judgment to one of peace and gratitude? We are here to help you. Just call upon us. Why would you choose to walk this path alone when there is so much help available to you? You are worthy of this help, this unconditional love, which we offer you at all times.

Allow your life to unfold as it was meant to unfold. Understand that challenging situations are there for you to learn, to check your progress and how you might change your perception. There is no punishment, no judgment involved. The only judgment comes from you, as you continue to seek perfection from yourself or others. Dear One, if perfection were the goal, your time on this plane would be endless. For perfection is impossible in the human condition.

Your heroes, those to whom you look for inspiration, all have trials and tribulations. They all struggle. They all have set-backs. The difference is in how they perceive these challenges, in how much time they spend holding onto negative thoughts and self-judgment. It requires practice. It requires faith. It requires surrendering to the imperfections within themselves and this physical world.

You, Dear One, are exactly where you need to be at this moment. You have made immense strides on this journey to get to this point in your life. You have been the catalyst for change, for the learning of others, just by being who you really are, a Divine being on a physical journey.

Choose peace.

Accept help from those who love you, seen and unseen.

Know that your life upon this plane is of great importance

And that you have helped others on their journeys

Just by being who you really are.

One With All of Thee.

The Breath of Love

breathe as love

 www.500px.com

Healing is possible.

It begins with you.

Through your loving breath

Anything is possible.

Begin now

And help to change the world.

Dear One, your breath is love and as you breathe in and out you are able to circulate the love of the Universe; first within your physical body and then out into the world. Yes, it is that simple. Accepting the loving embrace of the All and then sharing it with all around you.

Do you not realize that every aspect of Mother Nature does this for you every moment of her existence? You are surrounded by love with every step that you take. This is why you feel more relaxed and calmer when you walk among the trees, along the brooks, at peace with your surroundings.

You are a part of Mother Nature, though many in this world feel that they have rule over her. You are one with her and she is a manifestation of the loving Universe, as are you. The difference is that she still remembers and exists in perfect harmony with the Oneness. Many of you have yet to accept your true nature, one of love.

The Mother transmutes carbon dioxide into oxygen with every breath that she takes, allowing you to exist upon this plane. She does this without thought, without judgment, only doing what comes naturally for her. You can do the same. You breathe every moment of your day. It is required for the very existence of your human form upon this physical plane.

Why not, then, use that breath as a vehicle for sending love out into this world and beyond? Without judgment, without thought, you may become at one with the Mother as you co-exist with the All That Is. But, you say, my life is more complex. I have emotions with which to contend during my day. I have more to do that just stay in one position and breathe love.

Indeed, you do. Your human form has more complexities than much of Nature, with the thoughts produced by that human mind, with the societal rules set up by humankind. Indeed, you do, if you allow your emotions to call you into actions, which are often regretted upon later reflection. You have been given a greater task, the one of personal growth, which affects the collective consciousness.

But you also have the ability to change, to create your world through which you move. You have been given the gift of creation, Dear One, as a means of self-discovery. And now is the time for you to use that gift for the highest good. The Mother is here to support you, no matter what your choice. She will continue to be a loving presence for you in this physical realm. For you are one of her charges, just as she is one of yours.

Can you begin to use the physical movement of breath as a vehicle for love. For those who struggle with self-judgment, breathe in the love of the Mother and of all of creation. Allow it to fill your entire being with the moist warmth of love, filling every pore with the light of love. Can you offer gratitude on your exhale for all the love which surrounds you, no matter what you think or do or say?

As your personal healing begins, can you then begin to send that love out to others, unseen and perhaps unknown to you, yet requiring that loving breath just as you did. You do not exist as an individual entity in this world or in the all of creation. You are an integral part of the Universal Being. You are connected to the pulse of love which breathes constantly throughout your existence upon this physical plane and beyond.

Connect. Connect with the Mother and with the All. Connect through the breath of love. Quiet that mind of yours and consciously begin to send and receive love with every breath you take. It begins with you, Dear One. You have the power to change the world, beginning with your breath. It is that simple.

Breathe deeply.

Inhale the loving embrace of the All.

Then send it out into the world,

To others who need it as you have.

You are One, Dear One.

You are part of the breath of Creation.

Accept your true nature

And breathe love.

Share it with all.

Dear One With All of Thee.
