Truth and Illusion

What is truth?

Is your truth the same as another’s?

How can you see past the illusions of this world?

Is it even possible?

Dear One, there is only one Universal truth and it is built on love. Everything else is an illusion. However, understanding this in a world of illusion is a difficult task. For there are so many opportunities to be led astray. How can you keep your course in a chaotic world swirling with illusion?

You have been given the tools to see past the smokescreens of others. And they include intuition, but also compassion. This path is filled with your personal illusions and those of others which cause you to doubt your ability to discern what your own truth is.

You all have the ability to recognize your own truth but you do not yet trust yourself enough to believe what your intuition is telling you. This requires practice by allowing time to go within and connect to your higher self through quiet times, meditation and contemplation. You are being led by your higher self throughout your day. You have just forgotten how to listen.

All who are present here upon this physical plane are on a journey of awakening. And despite what you may think, more are awakened at this time than ever before. Many will not be able to complete their journey. But they will travel further on their path with the help from those like you who are already awakening to their true selves.

How can you help them? It is by living a life of compassion and loving kindness. There is no need to engage with others in angry discourse due to a difference of opinion. As you move forward on your path, a deeper understanding of the Universal truth will be revealed to you. For all have an individual path of learning and awakening which differs from that of others. The truths revealed have not changed. It is you who have changed as you move forward, becoming more open to the next level of teachings to be revealed to you.

Because another disagrees with you does not make them your enemy, for remember that you are all connected and you would be fighting with yourself. All are searching for love and connection. And many hold onto beliefs because they see no other way. Can you show compassion and loving kindness to them rather than anger and judgment?

Remember that this plane is a learning ground and all have a purpose. And some do have the purpose of being a catalyst to move others forward. They have a choice of being a benevolent catalyst or a more derisive catalyst. That is their lesson. Your lesson is to respond with grace rather than to re-act in anger or judgment.

But all are here to move forward, awakening to their own divinity and connection to the All. Can you use your intuition to discern if what is presented to you is truth or illusion? Can you rise above the discord and be a beacon of light, of calm, of integrity and love? This is how you help others awaken. It is by providing them with an example of how to be in chaotic times.

Go within and become more accustomed to how your higher self speaks to you. Move through your day knowing and trusting that you are being guided constantly through your connection with the higher planes. As you do this you raise your own vibration and the vibration around you.

This raising of the energetic vibration on this plane will most certainly affect others. It is their choice whether they re-act with fear or respond in love. You in your daily life can be a benevolent catalyst just by allowing yourself to awaken and trusting your connection with the All.

Dear One, do not spend time trying to convince others to believe your truth. Show them by how you live and move through this world. Use compassion. Send love rather than anger and judgment. You are a being of light and are capable of being a beacon for others; lighting the path for them. It is their choice whether to follow. But perhaps you will show them a way they have never before envisioned.

Be the loving soul that you are.

Walk in strength and confidence

That the world is unfolding as it should.

Help the pendulum of life shift

In the direction of love.

It is possible through you.

Dear One With All of Thee.

The Joy of Being

joy of being

Sibylle Von Olfers : The Root Children Flickr.com

This gift of life extended to you

Comes with much joy and love.

The challenges strengthen you

Empowering the muscles of love

To encompass all

With its strength and resolve.

Dear One, the life you live here upon this physical plane is but a gift of learning and expansion. See it not as anything but an opportunity to learn, to feel, to experience possibilities unknown across other realms. You have the opportunity to grow in a manner that is not possible anywhere else in the Universe.

The greatest lesson for you has been the misperception of being alone, as these physical bodies cause a feeling of separateness from the All. But the time is now for you to begin to understand your connectedness with the All That Is; to look beyond this physical realm into the great expansion of being, of love.

Have you contemplated what will occur when you shed your physical body at the end of your time here upon this physical plane? Who are you without this physical body? Do you still exist and where do you go? There are many beliefs among you and our intention is not to discredit any of them. For your beliefs mold your journey and direct you on your path.

We just ask you to consider what existence would be without this physical body. Can you even begin to fathom that possibility? You, Dear One, are an eternal being, with many lifetimes in many different realms, using many different tools for learning. On this physical plane, your body is but a tool for learning and nothing more.

There are many beings who have never inhabited a physical body. Many of your religions talk about this. And there is a curiosity of what a physical existence would entail. You are the adventurous one who chose the gift of incarnation into this physical realm. With all of its challenges, it also contains many joys encompassing all the physical senses.

We tell you this because the time is now for you to look beyond the physical nature of your existence. The connections you have with those in other realms are becoming stronger as you begin to spend time in meditation, in reflection and in love. For love is the tie that connects all, that empowers you and overcomes fear. Love is what enables and strengthens the connection you have with the All.

Consider the gift of this incarnation unrealized by so many souls. Understand the impermanence of this time in the physical realm and the opportunities to learn and grow. Yes, there is pain and suffering, but you have survived so much of it and have gained such strength and self-realization through it. The possibilities for growth are so much greater here than in many other planes of existence.

How are you recognized? Not through your physical frame, but by your energetic signature. You all have it and will maintain this throughout eternity. Begin your day with a tone, a single tone is all that is required. This acts as a beacon across the universe, a homing signal to tell us where you are. A vocalization of your energetic signature travels across realms as your personal song. Do this every morning upon awakening to connect with those in the seen and the unseen worlds. Consider it as the howling of the wolves bringing the pack together. For now is the time for all of us to work together to raise the vibrations here upon this physical plane.

Dear One. It is time to swing the pendulum back from where it has swung into the direction of love and connection. It is not every man for himself. That is impossible and only a product of seeing the physical body as the only nature of existence. Do not allow the human mind to enslave you. Instead, allow your heart connection to lead you forward en masse with all the others who are now awakening.

Do not diminish your growth, your strength and how far you have come. Tone your energetic signature and connect with others who do the same. You are not alone. You have never been alone and the time is now for you to consciously join hearts with others across realms.

Open your heart to the possibilities of love. Sing your song daily and connect in love to All. Give gratitude for this physical existence and reflect upon the strength you gained getting to this very moment in time.

You, Dear One, are more than you think.

You, Dear One, are stronger than you realize.

You, Dear One, are always connected in love.

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.

I AM

You are the I AM.

You are a part of the Source.

You create your own world

With the power that lies within you.

Dear One, you are the powerful I AM and let there be no mistake that you are creator of your world. You are a vessel of light. You are the Divine, waiting to be unveiled. You are filled with knowledge and strength. You are One With All.

Do not doubt the light that shines within you. It is time for your awakening so that you may send out your blessings, your love, into this physical world which you call home. You are ready and the world awaits your acceptance of who you really are. It needs your Divine love to be sent to all corners, filling the darkness with your light. It is time.

Dear One, honor the divinity in all of creation, for everything you see, everyone you meet, has been touched by the Light. It is time for you to begin to see this light in all things. Yes, even those who cause pain and suffering are filled with light, though it has been clouded by fear. Help all to begin to see their own light, their own power, their connection to all things through love.

You have grown so much, more than you realize. You have the capacity to change this world with your Divine love. It begins with you. Start by directing that light inwards, towards yourself. For how can you love any other if you do not love yourself?

You are the alpha and the omega, you are the conduit of light from the Source, the Oneness, of which you are a part. You have the power to change the world. Accept the loving embrace that surrounds you every moment of your day. Open yourself up to the constant guidance that flows through you with every breath. Stand tall, walk with grace and love unconditionally.

You, Dear One, are the solution to any perceived problems you see in your immediate world. It begins and ends with love. For love is all there is. Can you have enough faith in yourself and your connection with all beings to accept the gift of you in this world?

You each have a specific role to play. You each are a string on a tapestry of love, intricate in its design, that includes all of creation. Should you be separated from this tapestry, it will dissolve without your presence. This is how important your presence is in the mosaic of life. Do not doubt this.

Do not dwell on the feelings of unworthiness or inadequacy. It is time for you to move past this, to trust and to accept your place in the world. You, Dear One, are an integral part with powerful gifts to share with the world.

How do you begin? Be open to all possibilities. Do not limit yourself only by that which you can conjure with your own human mind. Allow the magnificent possibilities created by the Divine to play out in front of you. They are endless, they are infinite and you are a vehicle to allow them to manifest for the highest good of all concerned.

You, Dear One, will begin to feel a shift in these coming days. Allow the love of the Divine to fill you with hope, with faith in yourself and in the Universal connection. Shine your light. It begins to seep out from within you, through the wounds you have carried for so long. Embrace your life and know that the perception of the human mind can be deceiving.

Open yourself to the infinite possibilities of life

Here upon this physical plane.

Stand tall, claim your power and choose peace.

During those times when your mind wants chaos and fear,

Choose peace.

Choose love, choose strength, choose joy.

 

You are the I AM and the possibilities for you are limitless.

Allow them to emerge,

Embrace them as they occur,

And give gratitude for all that occurs.

The time is now.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Your Place in the World

grant-collier-northern-lights-2

grant collier. northern lights 2 http://digital-photography-school.com/

You are a drop of dew on a leaf

Glistening in the sunlight,

Transforming to a raindrop

To quench the thirst of a parched land.

You are a grain of sand

You are a ray of sunshine

You are a gentle breeze

You are all of these and more

Simultaneously

For you are One With All of Thee

 

Dear One, you do not have a singular place in this world, in this universe, for you are one with all. Ego asks you to choose a label and stay with that identity for a lifetime. However the truth is that you are like a chameleon, ever-changing; like a breath of air, free-flowing and far-reaching. You are not one person or one thing. You are One with All for you are a Divine Being.

As you continue to awaken, this truth will become more understandable to you. You will begin to feel your connection to all around you; the love and yes, the pain of others in a physical body and even those who have left this physical plane on their journeys.

You will feel the loving connection with Mother Earth and hear her calls for a gentle touch for all of her creatures. You will begin to know without conscious decisions what the next step is for you to take upon your journey; what action is needed for the highest good for all concerned. This is how your awakening will slowly change how you live your life here upon this plane.

Do not be afraid of these changes, for many have already begun this transition to a higher consciousness of awareness while still inhabiting a physical body. And they are supporting you with their divine light as they understand the importance of a loving embrace for all of creation. Reach out to them, accept their help, their love and their support as you learn how to navigate a new way of being.

Your place in this world is not a single destination. Rather it is an omnipresence, a connection with all of creation. Your place in this world is a state of unconditional love, for yourself and for others; no matter what the situation, this constant state of love is your place in the world.

Begin by nurturing yourself as you take this step forward in grace. Awakening brings more sensitivity to the changes in your physical world along with the emotional states of others. Know that new sensations, new experiences never felt by you before may begin to occur. Be not afraid. But seek out help from others if you require assistance in moving forward. Call upon those of us in the unseen world who are with you every moment of your life. And know, truly know, that many are sending you love and support for the next step you are to take.

Yes, there is much fear and pain in your world at this time. But there is also a wealth of love slowly penetrating the dark corners that harbor fear. For this fear must be brought out into the light so that those not as awakened are also able to see where they are to focus their loving thoughts.

Your place in the world is here, in this physical body; it is there, in loving energy; it is everywhere in the blinding light of your true nature. You exist across continents, across worlds, across dimensions into infinity, for you are One.

Dear One, take a deep breath, and send love out into this world. There is an untapped power within you that is aching to be free to share love with one and all. And as you send this love out unto the world, know that it also comes back to you as a reflection of who you are and what you do.

Dear One, know your place in the world is vast and untethered, but also contained in the temple of your physical body. Move through this world gently, lovingly, and with grace. Treat the temple which houses your soul with that same loving gentleness.

Your place in the world is within the loving embrace provided by you as part of the All.

Be at peace with this, Dear One.

Dear One with All of Thee.

 

Memories

Time Will Tell by Audrey Kawasaki http://www.supersonicart.com

Open your heart and remember.

Remember a time when you were aware

Of the unconditional love

Surrounding you and

Filling your entire being.

Dear, Dear One, there is a memory deep within you of a time when you were bathed in unconditional love, filled with its essence. A time when you understood that you also were emanating that unconditional love. For that is who you were.

That is still the case. This is who you still are, a being of unconditional love, surrounded by love and emanating love with your every breath. The memory of who you really are is lying dormant within you waiting to burst forth in all of its glory and grace.

Why do you think so many of you crave being loved? Do you not say, ‘Everyone just wants to be loved’? This is because of that latent memory of times in another plane, where there was no question of the presence of love in your life, within your being.

Being in this physical state, embodied in this physical form, has given you the illusion of being separate, of being alone, of needing to earn the love of others. When in truth, you have so much love to give, so much love surrounding you.

But Ego has convinced you otherwise. It has convinced you that you are unlovable, unworthy of being loved; alone, forgotten and discarded. Oh, Dear One, nothing is further from the truth! Ask yourself why you crave this loving connection. It is because you miss the feeling, the awareness of unconditional love: your true state of being.

Do not listen to those critical voices in your head that come from Ego. It is unsure of itself. It is feeling threatened and so is working harder for its own survival. This is true with all dark thoughts, negative forces, coming to light in your world at this time.

As the light begins to shine brighter upon you, from within you, Ego will try its very best to convince you that you are mistaken and need to walk in fear to protect yourself from the darkness. The truth is that love is stronger than fear and the strength of that love lies within you. It surrounds you.

Allow the love within you to rise from your belly. Allow it to flow from your heart. Allow love to fill your every breath and sing the song of love that yearns to flow from your lips.

Remember, Dear One, who you really are and from where you have come.

Remember, Dear One, why you chose this journey upon this physical plane, with all its beauty and all of its challenges.

Remember, Dear One, that you are connected in love with All of Creation.

When Ego arises, when darkness seems to descend upon you, focus your power of love on them and watch them wither in its brilliance. Do not succumb to the perceived strength of Ego and its fear. For it is just a clever façade used to bend you to its will.

You are much stronger than fear. You have much greatness within. You have the power of love permeating your life. Use it joyfully, gracefully and daily. Join others who are on the same path of awakening and remembering.

And together, you can change the world, one breath at a time.

Walk in your greatness, your strength and reclaim the joy of who you truly are.

Dear One With All of Thee.

 

Awakenings

The cycle of life

Is not only for Mother Earth

It occurs for you also

Look to Her for guidance.

 

Dear One, at this time of awakening on parts of your globe the resurrection of life begins once again. The dormancy over the winter has given way to the blossoming of spring and new growth. You see it all around you in nature. But can you also see it in yourself?

 

Your personal journey is much like the cycle of Mother Nature for you are a part of this cycle as One with All. But have you ever considered how much nature reflects back upon your own life and the lives of those around you?

 

Consider how your own life mimics that of the outside world. In the colder months you have the urge to go within; you savor quieter days, feel the need to rest more often. It is a restorative process, a time of reflection and contemplation if you allow. You often feel the urge to provide more fuel for your physical bodies which many of you dislike for the additional poundage that often is the result.

 

As you look around you now, in the springtime of your days, what do you see? Many plants are putting out blossoms of various colors and fragrances. They appear at different times as increased warmth begins to fill the outside air. A burst of beauty that is short-lived, providing nutrients for your winged creatures. These tender leaves of new growth give way to the deeper colored, stronger leaves that will remain until the cycle begins to slow once again.

 

Consider this cycle in your own life as you move forward on your path. If you allow periods of stillness for inner nurturing and reflection, do you not at some point produce that AHA moment that comes with a burst of joy? For each of you this moment of inner growth will come forth at different times with different results. Just as the flower buds come in different colors, sizes and at different times.

 

This new awakening of yours, though inspiring, may cause you to feel tender in your new realization, as you discover new gifts, new connections. But as you feed this new part of yourself, often with the help of others, does it not strengthen as that new aspect of your life continues to become a part of who you are?

 

Dear One, just as in nature, all of you have your own cycle of reflection, awakening, nurturing and strengthening as you move forward on your path. As in nature, if this new growth is not fed and watered and loved, it will begin to wither.

 

There are symbiotic relationships in nature as one plant helps nurture another, which fertilizes another which helps another and so on.  So too, with you and your relationships. This is the web of connection of which we speak and how your growth, your actions affect many others around you and beyond.

 

You do not just live in the midst of nature, you are one with it and this cycle of life. Look to the Mother not only for your sustenance, but as a mirror of your own life cycle. Dear One, allow Mother Nature to teach you of the ways of life here upon this physical plane.

 

Allow your own growth to emerge in its own time, with its own beauty and intimate connection to those around you. Allow others to awaken in their own cycle. Nurture, feed, and allow time for reflection so that the blossoms of change within you can burst forth in a wondrous display of inner and outer beauty.

 

Understand the connection, the relationship that your life has with others. It is impossible for you to grow in an isolated state. Look to Mother Nature as she stoically survives the harshness of life with inner strength and regrowth. It is a never-ending cycle and you are a part of this cycle.

 

Dear One, your teachers surround you. Open your eyes to them. You are not master over nature, you are a part of it. Honor it and its natural rhythm and see the same in your own life. Growth takes time and nurturing. Co-existence often requires adaptation and change.  Do it all in love and follow the lead of the Mother.

 

All is well with you Dear One as your cycle evolves, Dear seedling of change. Dear One with All of Thee.
