Sadness and Loss

Comfort thyself with the knowledge

That perceived loss

Is only a transition of form,

For energy cannot be destroyed.

Dear One, in this physical world, loss is perceived as permanent, without recovery or future connection to whomever or whatever you feel you have lost. But this is an illusion of the human mind. For all of creation is composed of energy, which cannot be destroyed. You may not interact in the same manner after the physical form is gone. But, Dear One, the energetic imprint, the life you perceived as lost, still remains as a loving entity around you.

For those who have had loved ones transition from their physical forms back to their natural state of pure energy, know that they are still close to you. Communication can still occur, just in a different fashion. There may be a learning curve for both of you. But the loving connection continues to exist and will be there until you are able to join them in the same state of being.

For those who grieve the loss of a furry companion or a part of the Mother, the same applies. The energetic imprint remains with you. Your companion continues to be by your side. The parts of nature you no longer can sense with your physical being, still remains intact, just on another dimension, at another vibration.

Continue to send love to that which/whom you feel you have lost. For your connection to all of creation is through love. Your true nature is one of love. You are a being of light in a physical form, on a physical plane for personal growth. As you continue to grow, this will begin to resonate as truth for you. Be open and receptive to a new way of being in this world. Allow yourself to interact with all of creation in new ways.

As the energetic vibration upon this plane continues to rise, you will be encouraged to adjust by raising your own energetic vibration. This is a new concept to many as the physical body vibrates at a much lower frequency. As you grow, you will better understand your true nature as an energetic being who is only cloaked in this physical form for a very short period of time.

Dear One, you are one with all of creation. Nothing exists on its own, for everything is connected as an energetic force. And energy moves freely between forms and dimensions. Think of water filling a pitcher, contained for a while, but able to flow out and become one with what it encounters in a different form. Not destroyed, just transformed; into vapor, into ice, or saturating that which it touches. It still exists, just in another form.

This life you lead is a dance, a dance between possibilities and worlds. Can you feel the joy of transformation rather than the grief of loss? Human emotion is certainly a part of this journey and we honor the feelings that rise up within you. Acknowledge them and allow them to surface while asking for comforting embrace from those who love you dearly, both on the physical and non-physical planes.

When you are ready, find that place of calm that resides within you. Reach out and bring in the joy that comes with transformation. In your grief, you honor those whom you feel you have lost. But can you then celebrate with them the new freedom, the new adventure, that comes with transition? You, Dear One, are not left behind. You are held close in love, encouraged to grow and to love even more fiercely than you have ever loved before.

Honor all who cross your path, be they animal, mineral or vegetable, for all physical forms are one with the Source. Understand the impermanence of form, of experiences, of anything that exists here upon this physical plane. What is permanent is love. It will exist into infinity, across dimensions, connecting all of existence.

Send love with every breath you take. View your life through the lens of love. And know that nothing is truly lost, only transformed. This is a plane of learning and expansion of who you really are.

You are Love Incarnate.

Contained in a physical form for now,

But able to transmute and transition

Through love and only love.

Prayer and Trust

How do you pray?

Is it motivated by fear or by love?

Can you trust that the outcome will be

Exactly as it should?

Dear One, the world needs your positive input, your blessings and your support. Your prayers are always heard and are projected out into the ethers surrounding you and beyond. You are never alone, you are never abandoned and you are never punished for perceived indiscretions.

Can you begin to trust that your life, your world, is unfolding as it should in order to lead you forward toward your individual greatness and growth? This day we wish to guide you in how to put your most positive intentions out into the ethers. For many of you do not understand the workings of the Universe.

It begins with love and with trust that all will be well. It includes gratitude and understanding that all prayers should be ‘for the highest good’. Otherwise, since all are connected, the outcome you desire may come at the expense of another.

Can you trust that perceived set-backs are indeed the beginning of the path to greatness? How often did you wish for a certain outcome that never occurred? And yet, in retrospect, you were able to see how your desire would not have been the best course for you or for another.

The human perspective is limited and filtered through human emotion. Suffering is often the impetus for change. The human spirit is quite powerful, yet unrealized for its greatness. And suffering is a part of the human condition. For without personal challenges, your time here upon this earthly plane, would be for naught.

We say to you again, that love surrounds you, love supports you and love encourages you to reach higher than you thought possible. In times of distress, know that we surround you with our loving embrace and have not turned away from you. In truth, we are right there by your side, ready to help the moment you call upon us.

The words you put out into the ethers during prayer are not as important as the feelings you project. If you wish for peace, start the process by feeling peace within and projecting it out into the world.

If you desire healing for yourself or another, see the recipient of your prayers already healed. Send positive energies, see strength and power, rather than weakness, in need of help.

For although compassion is the motivation, seeing another as a victim surrounds them with negative energies. Instead, lift up their vibrations by seeing their strength and their personal power navigating them through their current challenges. Surround them in loving light, see them whole and healed, filled with love and peace of mind.

Gratitude, as well, projects out into the ethers a higher, rather than a lower vibration. Give gratitude for future events, as if they have already occurred. When you enter your vehicle, give thanks for getting to your destination and back safely. When you rise from your resting place in the mornings, give gratitude for a most wonderful day ahead. The ethers that surround you reflect back to you what you feel. If you walk in fear, you will see only fear. But if you walk in love and gratitude, your life will be filled with joy and peace of mind.

The complexity of existence is more than the human mind can comprehend. Even when you return to us, you will comprehend only as much as you are prepared to receive. Growth, Dear One, is a continuous process. It does not end after you leave your physical body. It only continues on another plane, a destination which you choose when you are ready to move forward again.

Dear One, we encourage you to walk through your day with loving kindness. Project out into the universe a world of love and joy. See others in all of their strength and power. And understand that all challenges are opportunities for you to realize the strength that resides within you.

Send blessings out into your world. Do this throughout your day. Give gratitude for gentle strength, love and joy in all who cross your path. It begins with you, Dear One.

See your own strength in your connection with the All.

Understand the power of your thoughts and feelings.

Rise above any perceived notions of failure or weakness.

You are a part of the Source of All of Creation.

Dear One, fill your world with light and love.

It begins with you.

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.
