Moving Forward

society6.com

You have the strength

You have the power

You have the guidance

To move forward in grace.

Allow your divinity to emerge

In all of its glorious love.

Dear One, you are now in a position to more easily move forward with grace and love. The groundwork has been laid for you. All you are required to do is to take the next step with courage and faith that all will be well with Thee and Thine.

Celebrate how far you have come. Celebrate that you are here upon this physical plane during these times of transformation. Celebrate the strengthening of your connection with the All and with your inner divinity.

No matter who, no matter what, this is a time to walk in grace, sending love out into this world with every breath you take. Old issues may rise up to be assessed as your body rests. You have had the opportunity to be by yourself physically. The question is ‘did you like and respect the person you have become?’

Reflection is important, without judgment. For self-judgment is a trap many fall into, thinking that perfection is the only way to grace and forward movement. Dispel that myth as you review your life. For the purpose of this physical life is to move through challenges and to learn from your mistakes.

Your own perceived failures allow you to find compassion for others as they learn their own personal lessons. What you do not understand is that there are no failures during this life here on this physical plane. Only opportunities for growth. And opportunities for synchronicities to occur between and among all of creation.

Dear One, it is time for you to see, really see yourself and all who cross your path as divine beings. Many continue to live in fear and subsequently act in anger, greed and violence. These are the ones who need your love the most.

Can you see them, hold them in the highest vibration they can maintain at this time? Can you bless them and wrap them in loving energies? Remember that energy affects form. This is why how you see, how you approach another energetically can make such a miraculous difference in life across this planet.

Form is inconsequential. Form is only a vehicle to allow you to grow in a manner impossible in formless realms. When you see someone only in form, close your eyes and view them again in your mind’s eye. The gift of physical sight is useful in navigating this physical world. But, Dear One, you are now moving with a foot in both worlds, seen and unseen. And just as a babe takes time to learn to walk, so too, you will require time to become accustomed to this new way of being.

Many of you have already had a glimpse of your gifts, perhaps seeing or feeling, hearing or receiving messages from the unseen world. Be not afraid of this. Again, we say to you, that the unseen world is your birthplace, your natural state. And for those who struggle with challenges of your physical, emotional or mental bodies, go within and draw strength from your divine core of being.

Your higher self will always guide your forward with loving embrace. Never with fearful guidance. Should that occur, then it is time to seek help. For although divine guidance is always available, many require help from the physical realm as they continue to remember how to be outside of physical form.

Dear One, this is a most joyous time across the Universe. Remember that your perceptions are limited if you view life only through the lens of a physical world. You are more than this physical being. You are an embodied form of the Divine. Connected energetically with all of creation not unlike your networks used to connect during these challenging times.

Trust that you are most perfectly placed with the most perfect gifts to help the collective consciousness grow as you are meant to do. Understand that you are surrounded by love. And that by sharing the energetic strength of love with all in your path, with all who live in fear, you are helping to raise the vibrations here upon this plane. Allowing higher energies to come in and support you as you continue to grow.

Your forward movement

Is supported by the All.

Open your hearts

And accept the loving guidance

Offered to you each day.

You were meant to be here for this time.

And you are held in highest esteem

For your strength and courage.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Trust

In yourself

In the All

In the forward movement

Of the Universe.

In the vision behind this day.

Understand your power

And use it for the highest good.

Dear One, change is upon you. It has been spoken of for many years across many cultures. It shall be wondrous. It shall be healing. You are a part of this change and how you accept it will have great effect on your personal life.

Remember that energy affects form. And in the coming days, much higher energies will be coming to your physical plane. All will feel something, though many will not understand the significance of the shift.

You have been most perfectly placed to absorb and work with these changes to help to increase their impact upon your world. What do you do? Be who you really are, a divine being filled with love to share with all who cross your path. Discard your human pettiness and open your heart to allow your divine light to shine and expand further than you have in the past.

Understand that any of those who choose to make their transition during these times of change will be able to continue their work from higher realms. For these energetic changes cross realms above and beyond this physical plane. All are connected, throughout eternity.

You were entrusted with this task when you chose to embody this physical plane at this time. You have been guided throughout your physical existence and will continue to be guided forward from this moment on.

Energy flows freely throughout and across realms. Trust that you are ready and capable of moving forward in grace. Trust that the vision for universal expansion is pure of heart and is birthed in love. See through your heart, not your physical eyes.

Acknowledge any doubt that comes, but do not open the door to it. For you are beyond that and can rise above that fearful thinking. These will be the times of cooperation across realms and throughout your own world as more of you awaken to your own divinity.

Understand, Dear One, that many energetic beings from other realms are here to help you. Some are embodied in form, though many are without form. But remember the power of energy and set your intent to work with higher vibrations within and around you. You are an energetic being yourself who is embodied in form for this physical existence.

Energy from across the universe is shifting and rising. Again, we say that many who have left their physical form will be helping from higher vibrations. They are still among you, they are still one with you, formless but connected through energetic vibration.

More knowledge of the significance of this change will be shared in the coming days and months. For you will need to raise your own vibration in order to best understand what will be revealed at a later time.

For now, rest your physical body as much as possible. Believe in your own divinity and see the divine in all who cross your path. Hold others in their own light, in strength and courage. See all connected to and guided by their higher selves. Trust that you are also connected and guided every moment of your day.

You are here because much of the work that is required must be done through a physical form. But remember that energy drives form and what you think or say is as powerful as what you do. Trust that all is as it should be and that you have the power, the strength and the guidance to do what you came here to do at this time.

It does not require grand or monumental gestures. Simply being who you are in light, in love; being where you are holding the energies steady as they rise around you. Seeing all around you as the sacred embodiment of the One of All That Is will be enough.

Trust In yourself

In the All

In the forward movement

Of the Universe.

In the vision behind this day.

Understand your power

And use it for the highest good.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Energy vs. Form

onecollectivepeace

Differentiating between these two concepts

Will help you understand

The workings of the Universe.

It will empower you

In the coming days

To assist in the universal changes

Affecting your planet.

At this time.

Dear One, so many of the writings transcribed here have alluded to the separation between both energy and form. You chose to become embodied in form in order to walk a path of self-discovery. And in doing so, you are allowing the Oneness to also experience Self through you.

The difficulty arises when you identify so much with form that the concept of energy is difficult to grasp. Or, if indeed you can intellectualize it, the challenge is in incorporating this knowledge into your daily life. It is still not understood by many that energy affects form and not the opposite.

What does this mean to you? Consider the power available to you when you disregard form and only focus upon energy. What you think, what you say are as powerful as what you do. For you are co-creator with the Source, the Oneness. Your own creation came about with a spark from the omnipotent Oneness which means that you are a part of the All.

The Universe does not exist outside of your physical form. It exists within, where your true nature, your energetic being resides. And in order to connect with the All, it is necessary to go within. Upon final release, which you call death, you are finally free from this form. You return to your natural state, one which does not support the illusion of separation, so common a belief when you are embodied in form.

Your personal rate of energetic vibration is different from another depending on where you are on your path of self-discovery. And the higher your rate of vibration while embodied, the stronger the connection is with the All. The further your reach as you radiate your light to others. And the more sensitive you are to the vibrations of others.

Your mere presence here upon this physical plane at this time is an act of service. It is so because your vibration is felt by others, even if they are not conscious of what they are feeling. You have all experienced being drawn towards another or feeling the need to distance yourself because of the energetic vibration someone is emitting. You are affected by and inundated by these energies every moment of your day.

This is why being outside with the Mother can calm and soothe you, for Her vibrations are pure and healing. You can heal the multiple layers of your energetic field (for there are more than one) by bathing yourself in the soothing energies of the Mother, of music or art or whatever brings you joy.

You can send any stressful feelings down into the Mother, by grounding to Her, and allowing them to flow down through the soles of your feel into the earth. And this can be done even when you are not physically in her environment. For it is all about energy and not form.

Understand that energetically, you can radiate loving thoughts to others who are not geographically close. Energetically, you can join the emanations of others who are creating a more calming and loving field around this planet. And energetically, you can connect with others, or with the All to receive or to send positive energies.

But remember, this also works in sending our negative, lower vibrations. You have seen it occur in your world as fear building across your globe. The power you have can help to transmute this fear into higher loving vibrations. Do not feel that you can do nothing to help. For radiating light and love is a powerful force. Form in not necessary, only energies.

This is why seeing another as already healed, rather than sick; seeing an adversary as a kindred soul created in love; or sending energetic support to another can be powerful tools to use as you continue to awaken upon this plane.

Dear One, rather than holding another in judgment, instead, hold them in light. Reflect upon the positive actions you can take to help raise the energies of this world.

Being aware of the actions of others can empower you. But do not empower the negative actions of others by giving all your focus to those actions. Instead, radiate higher vibrations, loving light to transmute and raise those lower vibrations. For by allowing others to upset you gives them more power.

Be aware, indeed, but choose to rise above the fear by surrounding all who cross your path, all in your world, surrounding them in love.

Remember that all form which you see houses a divine light within. Bless and give gratitude for all. Each has its role to play in this current awakening. Some which seem counter-productive but which may very well be the catalysts for change.

Honor all of creation.

Radiate your light outward to all.

Acknowledge and then transmute to love

All fear which comes your way.

Accept your power

Use it wisely.

And ask for help when needed.

You are one with the Source.

You are One With All of Thee.

Dearest, Dearest One.

Today

Vladimir Kush, artbrokerage.com

Is all that matters.

The past is gone,

The future is yet to occur.

Today, this moment,

Is your true reality.

All else exists only

In your mind.

Dear One, it is time to practice living only in the present. For the present is all that exists. This moment, now. For in this moment you can heal the mistakes of the past with forgiveness and compassion. And you can set the scene for the future with love, strength and power.

Remember that you are co-creator with the Source. You have created the world you see around you. This is not to admonish or judge you. It is a universal truth. Your own creation began with a spark of light from the Source. This means you are a living extension of the Divine. And with that, you have the ability to create the world in which you live.

Pain is inevitable during this human existence. Either physical, emotional or spiritual, pain will occur during the course of your lifetime. But suffering is an experience that can be controlled by your state of mind. There are many incarnated souls who live lives that are difficult and challenging. And yet, they rise from their beds with a smile and return at day’s end with gratitude on their lips. How is this possible?

They are the souls who understand that the level of suffering in their lives depends on how they view their world. Anger, blame and fear do not linger in their minds. They experience life in the moment, for the present moment is all that matters. And so, we ask, how do you live this moment of time during your day?

Remember that you have the power to change how you see your relationships with others. You have the power to walk this day in fear or in love. And you have the power to set the tone for the next moment by how you view this current moment.

This takes practice as many of you have become so accustomed to the belief that life should move forward in a certain way, down a certain path. But how do you know this is the most beneficial path for all when you have such a limited view of the world? How do you know what is best for others when you view each other with blinders on, making assumptions about them without really ‘knowing’ them?

Dear One, you forget that all are divine. Everyone you meet, everything you see has the spark of divinity within. All were created by the Oneness, either directly as you were, or through you, as you continue the arc of creation through your own divinity.

You have the power to change how you view your surroundings, how you interact with those around you. Can you allow all in your path to teach you how to see the divine in your world? Instead of seeing a world of fear and discord and strife, can you take a step back and ask yourself why you judge someone as you do?

In order to change this world, you must be willing to change how you perceive it. That is not to say that you should ignore the suffering of others. Instead, hold them in higher vibration. See them not with pity which does not serve them, but with strength in order to lift them up.

See those whose actions cause strife and pain, see them as troubled souls who have lost their path to the light. Send them love, hold them in love while taking actions to alleviate the pain of others. For remember that sending angry, negative thoughts to one person in truth sends those same thoughts out to all of the world, all of existence.

Remember, too, that the actions of some may be the exact impetus to inspire others to greatness. All have their gifts to offer to this world, often without realizing the impact of their actions.  And many gifts cannot be seen as such due to the emotions of the moment. Take time to reflect upon this truth.

This is not an easy path for those who have acclimated to living in a world of fear. But it is possible. And you have help awaiting in the wings. All you need do is ask for it and it shall be delivered to you in a way most acceptable to you.

Dear One, the moment is now. The power exists in this very moment. Hold it in gratitude for the opportunities for growth which lie before you. It begins with you making the choice to change how you move through your world. It begins today.

Hold your head high

And see the beauty that surrounds you.

Offer gratitude for the abundance

Of opportunities for love.

And take the first step of empowerment.

It begins with you, Dear One.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Dream Your World

flickr.com

Into being.

You have the power

To create your world.

Open your heart

To a loving world.

Dear One, you have the power to create your own world. This power lies within you. It is not necessary for you to live in a world created by another. Create a world of healing. A world of love. Share your light with this world and allow the healing to begin.

It lies within you, this power. It has always been there, dormant until you have reached a level to hear these words we speak. The time is now for you to acknowledge the power within and to begin to use it for the highest good.

But in order to dream your world into being, it is necessary to place yourself in that world. How is this done? By using all of your senses. Consider a world of healing. How would that feel on your skin? What would it sound like? What would you see in this world of healing? How would it taste and how would it smell?

In order to manifest and create this world, reflect upon all of these questions? How would your physical body know it was in a world of healing? Then once you have answered these questions, close your eyes and place yourself within that world. Completely. For a moment immerse yourself within the sensual world of healing and begin to notice a change.

This exercise can be done as often as you wish. Then trust the outcome. Remember that you are a being of light. An ETERNAL being of light placed here upon this physical plane for a brief moment in time. But what you do in that brief moment of time can be monumental.

And realize that the results you seek may not occur while you are incarnated within your physical form. But any prayers sent out in loving kindness will begin the process of change. You are so very powerful, Dear One. Begin to use that power for the highest good. The possibilities are endless.

We remind you once again of the Universal shift that is occurring. Do not approach this in fear. But with joy for the opportunities that lie ahead for you and for your world. You are needed to help with this process. This is why you are here at this time. For each of you has a role to play in this awakening. And it begins with using your creative power within.

The role you play may not be apparent to you. For what you consider a small action can move mountains. But the connection between and among all beings is a powerful tool. That which you send out travels far into the ethers. Sending love or anger out to one person is in truth, sending love or anger out to all. Be aware of this concept as you voice your feelings.

This is not to suggest that you not feel emotions that arise. It is a necessary part of your growth to visit with all possible emotions during this time in the physical realm. What can be done is to ask for that emotion to be transmuted into love as you send it out into the ethers. Helpful beings are happy to do this for you as you experience and express the plethora of human emotions necessary for your growth.

Remember that help and guidance are only a whisper away. Ask and you shall receive guidance, support and help. Then allow it to come in whatever form is best for you. Do not have preconceived notions of how it will manifest for you. For all are unique and guidance is individualized for each of you.

Know how much you are loved, Dear One. Understand the joy of anticipation as this awakening continues. It will be challenging but you are ready. You are now able to stand in your own power. Allow yourself to grow into this power to help facilitate what is to come.

Stand in your power.

Create a world of healing,

A world of love.

It begins with you.

Guidance is present

At all times.

Just ask and feel our loving embrace.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Reflection

chancescoggins.com

Can you reflect upon your life

Without judgment?

From a higher perspective

With compassion?

Can you focus on the love

You shared

Rather than the goals you achieved?

Dear One, this is a time for you to reflect upon your life. But can you do so without that self-judgment which is so often present within you.

Are you able to take a step back and reflect from a perspective of love shared? Can you give gratitude for all that you have rather than focus on that which you lack? For there is more abundance than you see.

All through your life you have had choices. You made them to the best of your ability for who you were, where you were then on your path to awakening.

And each choice made was the correct one for you at that time. If you look back and see mistakes, also see the growth that emerged from experiencing the outcomes of those choices. Nothing is for naught.

If you reflect upon a life lived in fear, then give gratitude for the awakening you are having at this time. Understand that you can change how you live your life in the next breath that you take.

This is not to say that it will not be a challenge, for habits are difficult to break. But it is possible and being aware of your prior actions, your previous viewpoints that no longer resonate with you is the first step.

Do not waste energies berating yourself or others. Instead see the progress made, the possibilities for change and how viewing through the lens of love can ease the transition of your ways. If there was no growth needed you would not be here, especially at this time.

But you are here. And you have more strength than you realize. Reach for that strength now and move forward with your head held high. With your heart filled with love.

Make no comparisons between your life and the life of others. For each has their own path to travel. Each has their own strengths and gifts to share. Each has their own lessons they chose to learn while present here upon this plane.

Can you view this physical, emotional experience from a higher perspective? Can you view your plane of existence from above, imagine the image from space and recognize that all are One, all are connected here upon this circular globe?

Can you see the beauty of that connection with no borders, no differences among you? All here upon this plane to play your part in the expansion of the collective consciousness.

What is your role and have you done your part? If you have loved unconditionally your surroundings, your fellow travelers and all sentient beings, then you have walked your path.

Is there more that you can do? Yes, of course there is. But do not think you must make grand gestures in order to have completed your task. Understand that your very existence affects the lives of others.

Acts of kindness, forgiveness, generosity of spirit all raise the vibrational energies. Remember that you may never see the results of your actions. For often they occur without your knowledge.

Can you act without the need for awareness of the outcome? Can you accept that any action that comes from love makes a positive difference in this world?

Do not doubt yourself and your worthiness, your effect upon this world, and beyond. You HAVE made a difference and will continue to do so as you awaken more each day.

Every act of love strengthens your connection to the unseen world. Every act of love clears the fog created by fear that has surrounded you and others. And every act of love brings more clarity, keener acceptance of the ways of the Universe.

As you reflect upon your life, do not despair for what may or may not occur in the future. Instead, see how far you have come, what challenges you have surmounted, and the inner strength which has arisen.

Then return to the present with the knowledge that you can act with love in this moment. And this moment is all that matters. Embrace it with love, strength and gratitude.

Be true to yourself

Follow your higher guidance

Which speaks to you constantly.

Trust your placement, your life,

Your presence as a light

Guiding others forward.

Remember that all are sacred.

All are one

And All are loved.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Choices

eyeem.com

You have the free will

To choose how to move forward

This day in your life.

And with those choices

Come opportunities to learn.

Dear One, this life you have chosen is filled with opportunities to learn and to grow. And as you do, so does the collective consciousness. It is through your life that the Oneness discovers Itself. For you are connected to the Whole. You are an integral piece of a sacred mosaic and your life and how you choose to live it does make a difference.

The choices are yours to make. You have guidance, should you accept it, to move forward in the gentlest of ways. But often the best route for learning is through challenges presented to you in your life. There is no judgment, only love. For no matter what path you choose, it will always lead you home. To the Oneness, to the All That Is.

What we ask you to remember is that all life is sacred. Including your own. Every part of creation, from the tiniest of microbes to the tallest mountain was created by the Divine. And so, has a piece of the Divine within. Just as you hold that holy flame of the Oneness within.

The Divine exists within you. It is a part of you and all that you see. Created in love. Created from love. This is who you truly are with more strength and power than you realize. For, Dear One, you have the power to create your world. Consider how different people see the same situation differently. Each has viewed it through the lens of the world that they have created. Their world.

You can view your surroundings with fear or with love. You can see others through the lens of compassion or judgment. You can decide that the action of another is wrong or an impetus for your own growth. Through what lens do you choose to view your world?

All are connected and the actions of one may affect the life of another who resides many miles away. Do you choose to act or to re-act? Do you choose love or fear? Do you choose to stay in an energetic environment which does not serve you? Or do you seek help, offer help, and choose to rise above your current situation?

Dear One, you have the opportunity to experience joy every moment of your day. But the blinders of fear and self-doubt prohibit you from accepting this gift. You are worthy. You are capable. You are the sacred manifestation of the Divine. Honor thyself. Honor thy world and all that surrounds you. For all are holy. All are sacred. Down to each breath which you take.

You have been given this opportunity for growth because you are loved unconditionally. You have been given this opportunity because you are worthy and have the tools to move forward with grace. You have been given this opportunity because it was your chosen path. And no matter which way you turn you will come home and be received with open arms.

Believe in yourself as we believe in you. Love yourself and others as we love you. Open your eyes and see the possibility for joy in every situation you encounter. The heaviness is great and yet you have the power to raise it. Through love.

If you feel burdened, allow the Mother to soothe your nerves. Find time to sit and breathe and connect to that eternal flame which burns within. For it is a part of the Source of the All That Is. Just as you are, Dear One.

If you do not like what you see

Choose another path.

There is always the opportunity

For change.

It is just a matter of

Taking that next step.

Lean on us if you are unsteady.

You are never alone.

That is impossible.

For you are indeed,

One With All of Thee.

Becoming

fazfacil.com.br

You are like a piece of clay

Being gently molded

Into your true persona.

It is there within.

It is beautiful.

And it has the strength,

The power and the love

Of the Universe.

Dear One, you are a being who has chosen this path of self-discovery. Not only for yourself, but for the Source of All That Is. As you live this life in service, and you do so without realizing, you are also becoming more of who you truly are. A wondrous child of the Universe.

And children need to be nurtured. They need guidance. They need the freedom to make choices in order to grow and mature. Their true nature can be molded by those around them, by events that occur and by observing the actions/reactions of others. This is how they become.

You, Dear One, are in a constant state of becoming. And you are being observed by others as a model of how to respond to life events. You are also being guided by unseen hands during the most stressful times of your life. You are being held closely, gently rocked in rhythm to the Universal song.

But as in any creation, the form which served you for many years no longer fits. No longer serves you as you continue to grow. Consider the insects, the reptiles who shed their outer layer as they continue to grow larger.

This also occurs for you. As the light within you continues to grow outward, who you were no longer fits your current life. And so, the outer layer must be broken and discarded so that the newer self can appear and continue to grow.

This growth pattern is initiated by external events in your life, some personal, some global. So that it comes to a point where a bandage no longer holds. When the only way for future growth is to allow the mold to break open and allow the new to emerge as the old is discarded.

This occurs throughout all of creation, but is most visible on this physical plane. Look around you and see how the Mother is also changing and growing, affected by the events around her. What emerges is what is nurtured and cultivated either with love or neglect. But always love can mend, slowly, but mend the effects of fear and neglect.

The choice is yours, Dear One. How do you wish to become? Can you believe that there is a wondrous light within you slowly seeping out through those wounds? Can you trust that you have the strength and the power to become a more generous, loving being? Can you accept that you are a being of light encased within a physical body?

The physical world is fragile. But the glue that holds it together, the love which lives within each and every one of you, is filled with healing power. What is required is the recognition of this power to heal. And to understand that often the only way to heal is to discard the old way of being and start anew. That those supporting bandages will no longer hold together. That what is required is to trust that there is a loving light ready to emerge if that old casing can be removed and discarded.

Dear One, you are on the road to becoming. To becoming your true self. Yes, many will not attain that goal here in the physical world. But during life review they will grow as they experience not only their lives but the effects their actions had on the lives of others.

But there are many more who will attain the goal of becoming and help to guide others. Only a few will do so in a public manner. While the majority will quietly do the work, unseen by many, but so powerfully affecting those they do touch.

Every breath taken can change your world. Begin today by breathing in love, sending out love. Do not despair the loss of the old as the new awaits in the wings, more glorious than imagined. Your life makes a difference, Dear One. Becoming is occurring to you and to all. Embrace the new while you bless and discard the old.

Feel the pulse of the Universe

Within your veins.

Hear the Universal song

And sing with joy.

You have the strength,

The support that you need.

Accept it and become

Who you truly are.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

What Say You?

Fine Art Los Angeles

From your heart

To the hearts of others.

A shared heart

For all are One.

Do you speak of love

Or of fear?

Dear One, the healing has begun, but it can be a long process depending on how each and every one of you speaks. Do those thoughts come from your mind or from your heart? Have you allowed your connection to the Divine to become a more open channel for guidance and service? Do not disillusion yourself, for you are a part of the healing process. What say you?

This hologram in which you live is created by you, as you are co-creator with the Divine. Your perception colors everything in the world which surrounds you. Two people can live through the same experience and yet have completely opposite recollections of what occurred. One speaks of love and abundance. The other speaks of fear and lack. What say you?

The potential for change increases daily and the power which you have to initiate change increases also. The only thing that doesn’t increase is your belief in yourself, your love of self, and your perspective of that which surrounds you. You still do not see that All are One.

It is much easier to believe this truth for those who resemble you in appearance, culture and belief. But it is also truth for those who disagree with you, who appear and live differently than you. And this is the concept which is necessary for you to reflect upon if you are to enhance the healing of this world.

Can you understand that each and every sentient being upon this physical plane is embraced by the love of the Divine? It matters not what actions they have done, how or where they live or in what they believe. For all are One and loved unconditionally.

Can you begin to believe, to truly believe, that all are a cell in the body of the Divine? All are sacred. Consider how many of you dislike a part of your physical body. You do the same when you act in fear towards another sentient being. You are not sharing love with a part of the Divine from which you cannot disconnect. All are One. All are connected.

Reflect upon the concept of self-love. You think it pertains to only one physical, emotional, spiritual body, that which you see as you. But in truth, self-love encompasses all of creation. For All are One.

Many of you have difficulty directing love towards yourself. This is the time when love from another can help in your healing process. All are One. All share a part of the body of the Divine. And if one part is ill or in pain, another part can aid in the healing process.

What say you, Dear One, as you continue this wondrous process of awakening? Just as there are symbiotic relationships throughout Mother Nature, so there are the same between you and all of creation. Not just with the human forms, but with all of nature. Not just with the world which you can see with your physical eyes, but also with the unseen world. A world which is larger, more powerful and more wondrous than you can imagine.

Just as the pain in one part of your physical body can affect other parts of your body, so too does pain travel across the Universe. For those who are more sensitive, you are already aware of feeling the energies of others. For those who are just becoming awakened, understand that what you feel may not have originated with you.

As time is able to bend and move, much of what you feel may be generational, from those in your past lineage. So too, any unhealed pain you experience today may be passed down to your descendants long after you have left this physical plane.

The spiral of change, of healing, is present. Will you help it to grow and encompass more of humanity, more of this world, and beyond? This is done through love. The same love which embraces you at this very moment. Can you feel it?  It has always been there.

Dear One, believe in yourself and in your connection to the Divine. Again, we say, you are worthy, for there is nothing that you can do which would disconnect you from the Divine.

Can you transform

Fear into love?

Can you speak and act

With guidance from your heart?

You play an important part

In this awakening

What say you?

Dearest One With All of Thee.

These are Sacred Times

Dear Readers: I came across this post recently and it resonated with me. Helped to put this world in a different perspective. And so, I thought I would share it with you.

Sending much love to you all. Be well and continue to live in the light. You are needed!

Celine

What if the Virus is the Medicine?

By Jonathan Hadas Edwards & Julia Hartsell

The emerging pandemic is already a watershed of the early 21st century: things won’t ever be the same. Yet for all that the havoc that the virus is wreaking, directly and indirectly, it may also be part of the bitter medicine the global body needs.

How could adding another crisis to an already crisis-ridden planet possibly be medicinal?

Before we explore that question, we want to be clear: our intent is not to downplay the severity or minimize the importance of lives lost to this disease. Behind the mortality figures lie very real pain and grief, and these numbers, often discussed so casually, are personal, representing the potential loss of our parents, elders, teachers, dance companions, grandmothers or immune-compromised friends. Already, our hearts are breaking for the physical distance with our aging parents until we know if we’re infected. There’s not only a risk of losing beloveds in this time, but having to do so from afar. Our hearts are breaking for those who may die or suffer alone, without the touch of their loved ones. We honor death as a sacred passage, but we do not minimize death, suffering or sickness in the slightest. We pray that each one who transitions from this virus (as from the many other deadly diseases, accidents, overdoses, murders, suicides, mass shootings, and on and on) be met with on the other side by unexpected blessing, connection, peace.

Neither are the economic implications to be taken lightly. Many in this country have already seen massive impact, and the recession has only begun. As always, those closest to the edge will be hit hardest. For some, a month sequestered in beauty could be a vacation. Others have a few months before financial panic sets in. And for others living paycheck to paycheck or gig to gig, there is a great immediacy of struggle. The economic ‘side effects’ of this coronavirus could be catastrophic.

And yet.

For many in our world, the pre-coronavirus status quo was already catastrophic. Many are facing an imminent end to their world–indeed, for many species and many peoples, the world has already ended. We are in the midst of a crisis of unprecedented magnitude: the choice for humanity is change or die. No one said change would be easy. (Neither is dying.) And incremental change is not enough. It will take radical change to shift our current, calamitous trajectory away from massive environmental devastation, famine, energy crises, war & refugee crises, increasingly authoritarian regimes and escalating inequalities.

The world we know is dying. What is unsustainable cannot persist, by definition, and we are starting to see this play out.

What hope is there, then? There is the hope that breakdown will become, or coexist with, breakthrough. There is the hope that what is dying is the caterpillar of immature humanity in order that the metamorphosis yields a stunning emergence. That whatever survives this collective initiation process will be truer, more heart-connected, resilient and generative.

We are entering the chrysalis. There’s no instruction manual for what happens next. But we can learn some things from observing nature (thank you Megan Toben for some of this biological info). For one thing, the chrysalis stage is preceded by a feeding frenzy in which the caterpillar massively overconsumes (sound familiar? We’ve been there for decades). Then its tissues melt into a virtually undifferentiated goo. What remain separate are so-called imaginal cells, which link together and become the template from which the goo reorganizes itself into a butterfly. Does the caterpillar overconsume strategically, or out of blind instinct? Does it know what’s coming and trust in the process, or does it feel like it’s dying? We don’t know. It’s natural to resist radical, painful change. But ultimately there’s little choice but to surrender to it. We can practice welcoming the circumstances that force us away from dysfunctional old patterns, be they economic or personal. We have that opportunity now.

Let’s return to a crucial word, initiation. On an individual level, initiations are those processes or rituals by which one reaches a new state of being and corresponding social status: from girl to woman, from layperson to clergy, and so on. Initiations can be deliberate or spontaneous, as in the case of the archetypal shamanic initiation, which comes by way of a healing crisis. To paraphrase Michael Meade, initiations are events that pull us deeper into life than we would otherwise go. They vary widely from culture to culture and individual to individual, but two characteristics they share are intensity and transformation. They bring us face to face with life and with death; they always involve an element of dying or shedding so that the new can be born.

Most all of us have undergone initiations of one sort of another, from the death of a parent to the birth of a child. Many have experienced initiation in the form of a crisis or trial by fire. Those of us who have gone through more deliberate, ritualized forms of initiation can state unequivocally: the process is not fun, comfortable or predictable. You may well feel like you’re going nuts. You may not know who you are anymore. You don’t get to choose which parts of you die, or even to know ahead of time. One of the overriding feelings is of uncertainty: you don’t know where you’re going, only that there’s no going back. And there’s no way of knowing how long the transformation will take. It can help to remember that the initiatory chrysalis phase is a sacred time, set apart from normal life.That it has its own demands and its own logic. That it cannot be rushed, only surrendered to. That it may be painful, but also, ultimately, healing.

Imagine what happens when an entire society finds itself in the midst of a critical initiation. Except you don’t have to imagine: it’s already happening, or starting to. It looks like chaos, a meltdown. We’re in a moment of collective, global-level crisis and uncertainty that has little precedent in living memory. The economic machine–the source of our financial needs and also a system that profits from disease, divorce, crime and tragedy–is faced with a dramatic slow-down. We are all facing the cessation of non-essential activities. There is opportunity here, if we claim it.

This is a sacred time.

However, unlike a traditional rite of passage ceremony, there’s no priest or elder with wisdom born of experience holding the ritual container, tracking everything seen and unseen. Instead, all at once there are millions of personal quests inside one enormous initiatory chrysalis. And yet, look closely: amid the goo, you may start to notice imaginal cells appearing. Pockets of people who are aligned with something they may not fully understand, in receipt of a vision or pieces of one, beaming out their signal to say: let’s try something different.

This is an opportunity to loosen our grip on old and familiar ways. Those ways worked for as long as they did, and they got us here, for better and for worse. They seem unlikely to carry us much further. What if we’re instead being asked to feel our way forward, from the heart, without benefit of certainty–which, when concentrated, quickly becomes toxic? No one has all the answers in this or any other time. Right now the questions may be more valuable.

What if we honor this time with sacred respect?

What if we take the time to listen for the boundaries and limits of our Earth mother?

What is truly important?

How can we receive the bitter medicine of the moment deep into our cells and let it align us with latent possibility?

How can we, with the support of the unseen, serve as midwives to all that is dying here and all that is being born?

With these questions resounding, let us   s l o w d o w n and listen. For echo back from the unseen, for whisperings from the depths of our souls and from the heart of the mystery that–no less so in times of crisis–embraces us all.
