Acceptance or Control

Without viewing the situation

From a higher perspective

How can you know the best outcome?

How can you understand why something occurs

If you have such a limited view

Of your world, of your life?

Dear One, there is a time for simply accepting what is occurring in your life with grace and with love. The human mind, ego, wishes to control all aspects of your life, when that is not possible. The web of connection affects the forward movement of all of creation. Even when you may view it as a step backward.

You have been given free will for the purpose of learning and self-discovery. And, indeed, there are consequences for the choices that you have made as you continue on your personal journey. But do not underestimate the connection of all of creation and the interplay of lives throughout the entirety of existence.

This world of illusion encourages you to believe that you alone are the navigator of your life. You do not always understand that choices you have made, as minor as they might appear to you, affect the all of existence. Every breath that you take sends your essence out into the world and beyond. And so, we ask, is that a breath of love or one of fear?

Do not discount the synchronicities in your life. These are the moments in time when your higher self, when the guides who watch over you, are gently guiding you forward towards an outcome of personal growth and inner peace.

These physical bodies continue to add to the illusion that you are alone, a single entity moving through this world, driven only by your own decisions and actions. When in fact, the web of connection pulls you forward in ways so subtle that you feel in complete control of your life.

The purpose of this physical existence is to help with the growth of the collective consciousness. And the goal from the beginning of this existence has been to succeed with a unique form of growth only possible on this learning plane. Understand that there are legions of beings who are gently moving each and every one of you forward to a place of loving kindness.

Of course, your free will allows you to accept or reject the guidance offered to you daily. And there is no punishment or judgment should you choose not to listen to the gentle guidance given to you. There is of course, cause and effect, and so your actions always have consequences. Yet, from a higher perspective, all consequences are opportunities for growth, not only for you, but for the All. For any lessons that you learn during this earthly existence are passed onward and upward to other realms of being.

And so, we say to you once again, that you are never alone, that you are never abandoned. In fact, for those who are more sensitive, you will become aware of more and more beings surrounding you in loving embrace.

Can you begin to be more mindful of how you move through your day? Can you begin to see the effect of negative words or actions on you or on others? Can you begin to accept that the best way for you to move forward is in love, and only in love?

Dear One, accept that which you cannot change and understand that often there is a higher purpose for a situation which you cannot see from your perspective. Ask for guidance daily and look for the response to be given in a way which is most gentle and appropriate for you. It may be through nature, through a child, through a song or just an AHA moment as you are doing a mindless activity.

Do not feel as if you are being punished or judged. Move forward with compassion for others and for yourself. Choose peace over chaos. Choose love over fear. Choose acceptance and be receptive to the guidance offered to you daily.

You are on a path of self-discovery

And your path affects all of creation.

You are being guided through synchronicity.

And you are encouraged to choose love.

Only love.

Every day, with every breath.

For you are love incarnate

Created in love.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Release and Let Go

Let go of that which does not serve you

Open the window

Allow it to take flight

Untethered from your grasp.

Dear One, there is much in your life that no longer serves you. And yet you continue to hold it tightly to your breast, from habit, from desire, from unconscious attachment. Now is the time to reassess your life and what needs to be released in order for you to move forward.

You continue to grow every moment of your day, with each breath that you take. And there are many dreams, expectations and ways of thinking which will not help you on your chosen path. It may not be the actual dream but the way in which you perceive it.

Can you release all attachment and let it go? Can you set it free with love and compassion? Can you trust that perhaps your vision has changed and the way you see things no longer includes this old way of thinking?

This does not mean that what you wished for so deeply is not still possible. But perhaps you have been too limited in your vision of how it might occur. Perhaps the outcome you hoped for does not consider the growth you have experienced, the possibilities now available to you on this part of your journey.

Dear One, reflect upon how you see your world, in the past and now in the present. Are you trying to change a situation that does not seem to move forward? If so, can you step back, shine light upon it and release it from your hold? By releasing your attention, you allow it to move in the direction it must go, while freeing yourself as well.

Trust the unfolding of your life and understand that in order to continue on your path, there are situations beyond your control which need to be released from your life. Do this with the purest of intent. Do this with love. And see what comes into your life to replace that old way of thinking.

Dear One, the possibilities for your life are much greater than you could ever imagine. Do not limit your growth by remaining in that old way of thinking. Give flight to that which is not working in order to allow the next phase to begin for you. Trust, Dear One. Trust.

There is much joy, much beauty, much love in your life. Do not fail to see it as you contemplate your perceived failures. For in fact those perceived failures are only stepping stones to the next phase of your life. Give gratitude for the experiences that have carried you to this moment in time. Review your life with love and move forward without expectation. Move forward with the knowledge that you are carried in our loving embrace, with each step forward that you take.

You are dearly loved.

You have grown exponentially.

And you have so much further to go.

As your wings unfurl in preparation for your flight.

Be free, Dear One.

Be open and receptive to change.

For it will be more glorious than you ever imagined.

Detachment

Can you be compassionate

Yet detached from the outcome?

Which matters most….

The interaction or the outcome?

Dear One, are you able to be kind and compassionate, to do your best, and yet be detached from the outcome? If you act with pure intent, does the response to your actions, your words, really matter? Are you able to give, to focus only on the act of giving and not the result?

You are responsible only for YOUR thoughts, YOUR words, YOUR deeds. We have encouraged you to be of pure intent with all that you do or say. How people respond to you is not your concern if you have done your best in those interactions. Yes, human emotion entwines itself around your every movement for you are living in the human condition. But you are also a being of light, with grace and connection with the ability to come from love in every interaction.

Can you focus on shining your radiance from every pore of your human vessel until it surrounds your human form in light? Can you see yourself as this beacon of light? And can you understand how the energetic transfer of every interaction will thus be encased in that light, that love?

Dear One, speak and act with pure intent, for that is the best that you can do. How another perceives your words, your actions, is their responsibility. You may be misunderstood, for the recipient may not be accustomed to such a loving interaction. Or they may perceive your interaction with mis-trust due to occurrences in their past. Can you, in spite of this, continue to walk in grace and show compassion?

You do not yet understand how much you affect others in ways that are unknown to you. You have been taught to look for immediate responses. You try to change another’s way of being and if you do not see the intended response, you try harder. Many of you worry about what others think of you.

Instead, can you be your authentic self; that being of light surrounded by love? Can you understand that if you have used pure intent in that interaction, that nothing further is needed? Indeed, you may be disappointed. But can you understand that all have lessons to learn? That interaction, motivated by pure intent, may not result in the outcome you expected. And yet, it may have been the perfect interaction to help another on their path.

Have faith, Dear One, that all is unfolding as it should. What you see as a negative outcome may instead lead to a more perfect result than you could ever have imagined. Detach yourself from outcome. It requires strength, faith and grace to continue to walk with compassion despite any disappointment you may feel.

All are one. All are on a journey of self-discovery. And all are beings of light in human form.

Remember that and allow your inner light to guide you on your path. See the light within others, even when they may not be able to see it within themselves.

Be gentle, kind and loving and detach yourself from the outcome. Another may need time to find their way. Allow them that time. Allow the Universe to unfold in its most perfect way. Remember that from your human condition you do not have the same perspective as we do.

Trust, Dear One.

Walk in grace and know that guidance is only a whisper away.

For you are very much loved, Dear Being of Light.

One with All of Thee.

Lars and the Real Girl

This is an article I wrote that recently appeared on StigmaFighters.com

http://stigmafighters.com/stigma-fighters-celine-koropchak/

I recently watched ‘Lars and the Real Girl’ for the second time and once again was touched by the gentleness of this movie. For those who haven’t seen it, the movie is about a young man who thinks a blow-up sex doll is his real girlfriend. What is so poignant about the movie is how the town comes together and treats this temporary delusion of his with compassion; instead of mocking or making fun of him. At the suggestion of his doctor, they all go along with him and treat Bianca as if she were a real person. In one scene when Lars’ family is asking friends for support one outspoken woman lists the idiosyncrasies of the others in the room to make a point. We all have aspects of our lives that may not be considered normal. Really, how do you define ‘normal’ anyway?

What I hope for in this world is that more people will find compassion for others who are not the same as they are. That could mean differences in race, gender, mental or emotional status, physical appearance or financial status. All people need to be treated with respect, for we all have something unique to give to the world. But it begins with each of us, as individuals. It begins with having compassion for ourselves and loving ourselves for who we are in this moment in time. We are all wounded souls in one way or another. And once we give that wounded self the self-love for which it yearns, the healing can begin.

Can we begin to speak highly of ourselves and others and not use those negative terms we have used in the past? Can we find the gift in who we are, in our current state, and share it gently with the world? Can we begin to see the strength that lies behind that open wound? For the mystics say it is through the wounds that our light shines brightest. As far as I am concerned, we all have a journey to walk and each journey is important, significant and necessary for the growth of this world and all who reside within it.

So begin with yourself. If those negative words/thoughts continue to surface, then write a love letter to that wounded part of you. For much of that wound comes from the perception of not being loved. Believe in yourself and your role in changing this world. That role could be as a writer, speaker or activist. Or that role may be as simple as just being present in this world. For your presence does indeed make a difference; every moment of every day. Never doubt that. Let’s begin to change this world by being our authentic selves and sharing the gifts we have to give to the world. Are you with me?

Surrender

Your life is unfolding exactly as it should
Your lessons lay before you
Accept the natural rhythm of your life

Dear One, know that your life is unfolding exactly as it should. Know that this place where you are, right now, is exactly where you should be. Know that you have help and support to get you to the next step. Always. Always.

There is a progression in the lives of each and every one of you that is moving you forward even though you may feel that you have taken a step back. Your movement is always forward, despite how you might feel. The key is for you to surrender to who you are and where you are in this very moment.

Accept where you are in this very moment. If you are feeling deep emotion, then allow it to flow through you rather than deny its existence. You need not act upon that emotion. Just accept that this is how you are feeling in this very moment. Surrender first in order to make the changes you feel are necessary. Be honest with yourself that this is who you are, this is how you are feeling right now.

Surrender to your current situation before you try to move through it. Acknowledge, without judgment, that this is where you are. Once you honestly accept this, you will find the clarity of what to do next. The key is to be honest with yourself about where you are.

Breathe deeply and allow the clarity to come. And it will come. But before it does, the chaotic emotion you have been feeling, the unrest that has been agitating you, must first be acknowledged. Allow it to speak to you. Embrace what it is telling you and ask for clarity for your next move. The internal struggle creates too much distraction to allow you to see clearly. And so, surrender, breathe, listen, pause. You will then begin to see the path appear before you; the path to your next adventure in this experiential life, here upon this plane.

By surrendering, you may get a glimpse of the lesson in your current situation. Or perhaps, it will take more distance before you discover the self-knowledge learned today. But know that all is well with you. This is your journey. And as you learn to calm your mind, your emotions, through true surrender in this moment, you will begin to see how to move through your world. The struggles you feel can be disarmed gently with compassion and acceptance. This will create the freedom and clarity you then can use to move forward.

Dear one, you are not lost. You are exactly where you should be. Call upon us if you need more guidance. We are here for you. Every step forward that you take, we are by your side. You have greatness within you, for that is your natural state. Remember that in these moments of uncertainty.

We know you and see you as you truly are, a divine being on an experiential journey. You have the strength and the courage to move forward. You have the knowledge of the entire universe at your fingertips. And soon, you will better understand how to reach and use that knowledge for the growth of the entire collective consciousness.

You are a traveler on a wondrous journey.
Walk in light and love.
And know that there are loving arms around you, ready to lift you up, should you stumble.
For you are One with All of Thee.

Thy Wounded Self

Your path is long
With rocks and stones
But believe in yourself
For you are perfect in all ways.

Dear One, the journey here upon this plane is not always an easy one for you. There are obstacles present in your path as you move forward. And you may stumble upon these as you find your way. Worry not about that part of yourself who makes itself known during these times. Though it may live more in the shadows, it is still a part of your light. It is still a part of the Divine. This part of yourself completes you in a way you may not yet understand.

We talk of the wounded self. That part of you which emerges in times of stress, of growth, of change. Do not try to run from this part of yourself, for it has a purpose and that purpose is to show you a way to be at one with others on their own journeys. Surrender to this part of yourself. Accept it with open arms and allow it to teach you the lessons you need to learn this day. For it is all a part of the journey. The journey home to us.

You are a being of light and love. We have said this before. But you also exist in a physical plane in order to learn, to grow in an experiential manner. This was your choice as you were adventurous enough to heed the call and take the ride here upon this plane. But in order to grow, there is a need for you to accept yourself as you are, in your entirety. And that includes that part of you which remembers and holds close the wounds felt along the way. That is not to say that you should allow those wounds to fester and grow. But to acknowledge their presence, give gratitude for the lessons they teach you. Allow them to lead you closer to expressing compassion for others who are in battle with their darker side.

Embrace all of who you are and judge not that which you do not perceive as positive. For each and every one of you has many layers of which to discover upon this path you walk. When you come across the wounded layer, kiss it, love it and accept it as a part of your entire being. For how could you grow otherwise, without the challenges, the wounds inflicted upon you along the way? Remember that it is through these wounds that the light shines the brightest.

Do not worry that you have fallen off your path at these times. For in truth, you have taken a great leap forward as you acknowledge and move through this layer of you. Embrace yourself, all of you. Nurture yourself, all parts of you. And give yourself time to sit with this part of you. Work with it and give gratitude for the lessons it teaches you. Then raise your head and continue on your path. Do not doubt yourself, Dear One.

You are a Divine being on a physical adventure.
And we are here with you every step of the way.
Be at peace with who you are in totality.
For you are light and love and One With All of Thee.
