Impermanence

theweathernetwork.com

The Universe is in constant flux

Moving, growing, expanding

In every moment of time.

So too, you and your world

Are doing the same.

Understand the impermanence

Of your world and beyond.

Dear One, with every breath that you take you and your world have changed from the moment before. Nothing is static. Nothing is permanent. All that occurs in your life is a bridge to the next moment, the continued state of growth for you and your world.

Remember that you are connected to the All That Is. And so, you will be a part of any change that is occurring across the Universe. You are not alone. That is not possible as every part of Creation is connected. Consider this as you move through periods of great change.

Your existence here upon this physical plane is an opportunity for wondrous growth for both you and the collective consciousness. For what you learn here will travel through the web of connection to all points of contact.

But that connection runs in both directions and you have a wealth of knowledge and love being sent to you throughout your day. Change is necessary in order for you to have a full experience during this incarnation. And as the world around you evolves, as the Mother also expands in growth, you will be required to change how you live your life.

Dear One, can you view your world through a softer lens? Can you begin to understand that if one part of life here is under stress, the rest will be affected? Consider your physical body and how an injury in one part will affect the rest in one way or another. And how you respond to that injury, be it with fear or with love, will affect the length of the healing process.

You have much greater power in changing this world than you realize. Your approach to the daily fluctuations can have great affect upon the next moment in time. Whatever is occurring for you in this moment can change in the next. And yes, we mean to say what is occurring FOR you. For life here happens FOR you, not TO you.

Each moment in time is an opportunity for growth, for realization that you are a Divine being experiencing a physical existence. Every occurrence, every interaction provides you with an opportunity to act in love or with fear. These are the building blocks of your experience. The question is whether you want to build the foundation of your life, of your world, on fear or on love.

Consider the trials that appear before you and how you respond. Do you act as a part of the whole? Or do you act as if you are separate, requiring protection or distance from others? Whatever is occurring in your life at this time is a temporary state. The question is whether you will experience it with love or with fear. Do you build a world of fear or of love? The choice is yours. And how you respond will affect the timbre, the essence of the next opportunity for growth.

Change is inevitable. Change is constant. Change is how the Universe breathes. Whether it bellows or whispers is in response to your actions in this moment of time.

Choose love, Dear One. For that is your true nature. Choose to honor your connections with the All, for it is the truth of your existence. Choose a softer lens through which to view your life, your world. For you are a powerful being who is capable of creating your life, your world around you.

And if you do not like what you are experiencing at this moment, know that it will change in the next moment. And how it changes is affected by how you walk through this moment in time. See this existence as an opportunity for growth, not only for you personally, but for the All.

Remember that all that exists is this moment in time. The past is the lessons learned. The future is still being created. It is only the present which matters. And in a breath, it will be gone.

Choose love.

Know your power

And how you can change the world.

And understand that all that occurs

Is an opportunity for growth.

You are a Divine being

Who chose this path

To teach, to learn, to grow.

Grow in love

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Reflection

radiantlyhappy.blogspot.com

Time for stillness

Is needed at this time.

To help with your personal growth

And to step back

From the chaos of your world.

Dear One, you are loved beyond measure. You are a Divine Being who has embarked upon a human journey. You chose this in order to gain knowledge unattainable in any other venue. This human existence is unique and wondrous in what it has to offer you in your personal growth.

Remember this as you walk out into your world. A world which is currently undergoing much change and chaos. Your presence here at this time is no accident. You are here with the potential to make great leaps forward for the collective consciousness and also for yourself.

It begins with stillness and reflection. Time spent focusing on your breath, in and out. Inhaling the breath of the Divine. Exhaling the breath of the Divine within you. Can you pause frequently throughout your day to focus on the breath and feel the exchange of love as you partake in this simple task?

You are a conduit between heaven and earth, between the different realms of existence. And you can be that conduit as you focus on your breath. Imagine pulling the celestial energies down through your crown chakra on your inbreath. At the same time, imagine bringing up the grounding energies of the Earth Mother through the soles of your feet. Allow them to mix within your heart area. And on your out breath, release them to their original placements. Celestial up and out, Earth Mother down and out.

As you consciously repeat this process, you are helping to bring balance between the physical and energetic worlds. It will help you to remember that at this moment you are part of both realms. That you walk with a foot in both worlds.

It reminds you that there is more to your existence than what you experience through your physical senses. It helps align you with both worlds as you navigate upon your forward path. And it helps you remember that you are connected with the Divine. Always.

This school of life is a wondrous opportunity for you. And you have grown more than you allow yourself to believe. Honor that. Reflect upon how far you have come. Reflect upon old habits that can now be released because you have reached this level of consciousness. And as you reflect, allow love to fill your very being. Sending it out to all of this world and beyond. Also sending it to yourself. No judgment. Only love and compassion for all.

Dear One, these are the times for which you came. To be of service and to grow. Remember that all which occurs in your life is an opportunity for growth. All those who cross your path are your teachers providing you with lessons to learn. As you are a teacher for others, often without consciously being aware of that role which you play.

Be still and breathe. Be still and feel the connection you have with all of creation. Be still and allow the calm of the Divine to fill every pore of your physical being.

View the Aha moments you have with gratitude, not with judgment. And replace any fear which wells up within you with love. Choose peace. In times of stress, know that you have the power to say, ‘I choose peace.’ And feel the difference within.

Your strength lies in your realization of your connection with the Divine. Know that you can trust your decisions made after times of stillness. You need not give your power away to others in determining how to move forward.

Keep that chaos without from coming within. For within is your sanctuary of connection and love. Do so by breathing, in and out. By reflecting on how far you have come and how much strength you have found to arrive at this very point in time.

There is purity in your heart. There is strength in your connection with the All. And there is love surrounding you always. You are not forgotten. You are never alone. And most certainly, you are not receiving punishment for deeds done or undone.

You are a Divine Being.

At One with the Universe.

You have the ability

To change your world.

One breath at a time.

Accept this truth

And be the conduit of love.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Hurricane Florence

My Dear Readers

I live in central North Carolina and so will feel the effects of hurricane Florence very soon. That means I may lose power for a week or longer. If this happens, I won’t be doing a post on Sunday. This will be the first time that I haven’t done a weekly post since the inception of this blog in September 2011. But in the event that I cannot get a post out, I wanted to give you two different tools to use in times of chaos. These are not my tools, but ones I learned from elsewhere and forgive me for not having the sources at hand to share with you.

First, if you are feeling stressed or anxious, you can do this exercise which will help calm you. This is from the tapping community.

  1. Sit or lie comfortably.
  2. Cross your left ankle over your right ankle.
  3. Extend your arms out in front of you and place the backs of your hands together.
  4. Cross your right hand over your left hand so that you can now clasp your hands together. If done correctly, you now have your right wrist laying on top of your left wrist.
  5. Now rotate your clasped hands under and up to your chest. Elbows are down and your clasped hands are close to your heart area.
  6. Gently allow your tongue to rest on the roof of your mouth.
  7. Now just breathe and enjoy the hug that you are giving yourself.

A dear friend showed me this and I do it often especially if I cannot fall asleep at night due to a racing mind. It works with the energetic meridians in your body.

Second, this is a meditation to help you overcome your fears.

  1. Close your eyes and think about a fear that you have.
  2. See it in your mind’s eye and answer these questions:
  3. What does your fear look like?
  4. What shape is it?
  5. How tall or wide is it?
  6. Does it have a texture?
  7. What color is it?
  8. Does it have a smell?
  9. Take a good look at it.
  10. Then wipe the slate clear and start this process all over again, once again seeing your fear and answering the same questions. Then wipe the slate clear.
  11. Repeat this process at least 6 times or until your fear has transformed or disappeared.

The point of this exercise is to see your fear. Because once you really look at your fear, you will realize that it is not as powerful as you once thought. This exercise came from one of my shaman friends and again, I apologize that I don’t have the source at hand.

I hope that one or both of these will help you in the coming days. We all can do our part to counteract the fear in this world with love. But it begins with each of us working on our own stuff. And the more balanced each of us can be, the better we can serve the world.

Many blessings to you all and I’ll be back as soon as I can.

Generator and gas, water, food that doesn’t require refrigeration, batteries, flashlights and candles. I think I’m as prepared as I can be.

Please send loving energy out to all those in the world who are experiencing trauma and challenges. We will get through the hard times together with love.

And remember chaos precedes calm and change.

Sending much love to you all.

Calm during Chaos

You have the ability

To dampen the chaos

With your internal calm,

With your connection to the All.

For you are more powerful

Than you realize.

Dear One, one thing to keep in mind is how this web of connection works here upon this physical plane. Because you are connected to all of creation, you may feel the emotions of others, especially if you are very sensitive. This can be a challenge for you, since you may not realize that the emotions you feel do not belong to you, but to another.

However, this works to the contrary also. Others will be affected by the calm that you exude as you move through this world. And so, this is what we ask of you; to find the calm deep within and to bring it forth to share with others.

You have all been in the presence of someone who either agitates you or calms you. There are those who can walk into a room and immediately change the atmosphere into one of chaos or calm. This is a role that you are also able to play and we encourage you to be the reservoir of calm in an age of chaos.

We have given you tools before on how you can protect yourself from the energies of others. Remaining grounded with Mother Earth or imagining a white or purple light around your physical being. Surrounding yourself with the loving energies of others from the non-physical realm and sending that love out to those around you.

It is a web of connection, Dear One, and whether you are alone or in a sea of people, you can and will feel what is happening with others. The task before you is to be the source of love and calm, rather than accepting the fear and chaos that permeates this world at this time.

Chaos precedes calm and change, and this physical realm is in the midst of a great awakening, with the potential for great change ahead. You have much help from the unseen world. Just ask for guidance and support and allow yourself moments of silence to receive the messages that are coming to you. For you have a direct line to the higher realms. Each and every one of you does. And that connection is filled with love for you and for all.

Do not feel that you are insignificant and unable to perform this task, for you have more power than you realize. You affect others daily not only with your words and deeds, but also with your thoughts and emotions. Consider how many others with whom you have interacted throughout your lifetime. Countless others have been in your presence, if only in passing.

Consider now how each one has been touched by you as your energetic fields connect, even for the briefest of moments. Consider the power of prayer with the transmission of love and compassion. And then consider the power of this when it is done by large numbers of souls, throughout the universe.

You, Dear One, have the power to help change this world and those worlds beyond your present awareness. Like attracts like and even small actions of kindness will draw out the same in others. Do not minimize your role in the growth of the collective consciousness.

Each of you has a gift to use for this purpose. It begins with love, something of which all of you have an unlimited source. Begin with love and as you discover and develop your gift, whatever it may be, continue by using that gift to help transform the chaos to calm.

It is no mistake

That you are embodied here at this time.

You have the courage

To help with the shift of consciousness

Now occurring here upon this plane.

We hold you in gratitude and in love.

We are always by your side.

You are never alone, Dear One.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Unconditional Love

Is it possible to love another

Unconditionally?

Is it possible to love yourself

Unconditionally,

With compassion for all?

Dear One, this world offers challenges daily to the concept of unconditional love. How can you love another unconditionally when you disagree with their words or actions? How can you have compassion and unconditional love for yourself when you do not live up to your own expectations of perfection? Ah, how to accept this life as a training ground for personal growth?

Many of you train your physical body. You understand that it takes repetition and dedication to build a stronger body. And yet, when it comes to your own personal growth, if you fail on the first attempt, you belittle and judge yourself and others. You expect that personal learning should be instantaneous, not requiring repetition and conscious attempts at change.

Personal growth requires being given the same scenario multiple times until you are able to move forward with compassion and unconditional love; for yourself and others. In fact, you often unconsciously choose to associate with those who can offer you the biggest lesson. People who are similar to those in your past from whom you did not learn this lesson. Reflect upon this.

The universe will provide you with many opportunities for growth, not only as an individual, but also as a collective. This physical world is smaller than you might think, when compared to the entirely of being. This means that it is possible for the same lesson to be offered to all who exist upon this physical plane. Remember that all are connected, all are one.

Consider the common challenges across the globe and how many mirror the personal challenges each of you has in your own life. Your actions, small as you might see them, can have an effect on the entire world. And it begins with how you see yourself, how you treat yourself, how you love yourself.

Can you move forward in your own life having compassion for yourself and not judging yourself so harshly when perceived failures occur? Can you not see them as another opportunity to move forward? Can you step back and ask what you have learned (for indeed, you always learn something) and see the perceived failure as forward movement?

Remember that synchronicity will provide you with opportunities to try again. They might be opportunities to act as a benevolent catalyst for another. Conversely others may act as a catalyst for your own personal growth. By recognizing this, your anger or judgment towards them may abate. It is all connected, Dear One, and gratitude rather than judgment is the response of one who has seen this connection.

Becoming more aware of these connections will help you to grow more towards a life of unconditional love and compassion. All who exist upon this physical plane are here to learn a personal lesson. But all are also here to learn a collective lesson. The pendulum swings back and forth as more awaken to the truth of their existence here upon this plane.

Dear One, take the time to talk to others who see the world differently than you do. Rather than judge them, look closer and you will see the commonality between you both. Offer loving kindness rather than judgment and anger. And trust that all is unfolding as it should. This is a time of many opportunities for growth for you individually and for all collectively.

Remember the connection between all beings not only here upon your physical plane, but across other realms of existence. The lessons you learn individually also affect the collective here and into infinity. Can you begin to move towards unconditional love and compassion even during challenging times? It appears a tall order and yet, it can be so simple.

The solution is love.

And it begins with you.

Show yourself more compassion

And less judgment.

Remember the Divine lives within all.

And that the trials offered you

May be the most generous gift of all.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Compassionate Detachment

In these times of change

Can you show compassion

Without allowing your emotions

To rise to uncontrollable heights?

Dear One, there are many changes occurring not only upon your physical plane, but throughout all of creation. Many of you are only able to observe what is occurring in front of you. But you can be certain that energetic shifts and wondrous changes are occurring in the heavens and beyond.

These are the times of which many have spoken for centuries, a time of change never before seen. For all has fallen into place from the location of the celestial bodies to the energetic vibrations in your physical realm. This is a part of the growth of the cosmic consciousness and you have been placed where you are in order to observe and help move this change forward.

But your human emotions are very powerful and often mask the wonder behind the current climate in your world. Viewing the daily events can be debilitating and immobilizing. This is why we encourage you to move forward with compassionate detachment. What does this mean?

Can you be a neutral observer of life? Can you prevent your emotions from clouding a true view of what is occurring in your world and beyond? Can you come from your heart in your actions rather than from your mind?  You are a Divine being who was created in love, who is filled with love and whose natural state of existence is to share love with all. This you can deny no longer as the energetic vibrations throughout eternity are rising at an accelerated rate.

When you come from your heart, rather than your mind, you will cease to judge. You will cease to re-act from sheer emotion. Instead you will act in love. You will send love throughout your day, with each breath that you take. You will fill your immediate environment with the higher vibration of love, rather than fear, or hate, or judgment.

Detaching from an emotional reaction to events observed will empower you to be that loving Divine being, your true nature. Settling the chaos which is agitated by a purely emotional response will allow you to see more clearly, to act with more resolve and to move forward with a calmer demeanor.

It is up to you to rise above the fray, to not engage, but to soothe the frenetic energies as they continue to transition to a higher vibration. For those who have spent little time outside of chaos and fear, this energetic change can cause even more fear and erratic behavior. For this reason, it is so important for those of you who understand the difference between love and fear to be a calming presence in your world.

The energetic shift has begun and will not stop. But you can help by tempering your own energies with breath, with prayer, with meditation. It is in this way that you can help stabilize what is now occurring across all realms.

Do not jump into the boiling pot and add to the chaos. Instead, turn down the flame with your quiet presence. We are not suggesting inaction. We are urging against re-action. By equilibrating your own vibrations, by accepting your own Divine nature, you will be a calming presence to those around you.

You can still act to help create the changes you seek. But do it with compassionate detachment rather than with emotional fervor. Understand that many are desperately trying to stay on course to a destination that is no longer attainable in this changing sea of energies. Holding onto old ways of being is no longer possible. This is why your quiet presence during this universal change is so important. This is how you guide others forward, those who shake in fear, those without faith, those who hold onto perceived power that is truly impotent.

Dear One, rise up in love and compassion.

Do not allow the emotional fervor to steer you off course.

Allow love to be your map to peace.

Approach these changes with compassionate detachment

And lead the way forward through this chaos.

You are needed at this time to be who you truly are

A Divine being who is One with All of Thee.

Where is the Peace?

where is the peace

circumpunktdesign.tumblr.com

Where is the peace?’, you ask.

It has not abandoned you.

It is still within you.

Dig deep and you shall find it.

The quiet pool of solace and reflection

Just a breath away.

Dear One, do not doubt that there is peace to be found. For it still remains, calm and refreshing. You carry it with you wherever you go. Pause. Take a breath and go within. The din of this physical world can be harsh. But know that silent pool of peace awaits your arrival for replenishment and healing.

As you continue to grow, the world will appear differently to you. You may seek out more solitude and quiet. Your senses may feel overwhelmed and overstimulated with input from this physical world. Do not despair, for there is solace within. Always.

If you do not have a meditative practice, now is the time to begin. For as you continue to grow, you will seek peace in situations that appear to provide none. These are the times when you can go within and find the solace which you need.

The more often you practice quiet times, the easier it will be to reach that pool of serenity in times of need. Begin now and find time each day to sit in quiet reflection. The more often you do this, the easier it will become to reach the depths required to go to achieve that peace which you seek.

The world in which you live is in a major transition. These are the times spoken of often in the past. There is nothing to fear, but there is much work to be done. And it begins with you. It begins with you calming that negative emotion which rises from your belly before you speak or act. For remember how the energy which you generate, be it higher or lower vibration, will be sent far and wide across the cosmos.

Dear One, if you are reading these words, you are ready. You have grown enough to begin the process of changing this world into one of a higher vibration. You have grown enough to recognize kindred spirits on this journey of remembrance. You have grown enough to be able to send out love during those trying times of existence here upon this physical plane.

Find those who seek peace and harmony in this world. Work together, support each other and know that your kind words, your thoughts of love and your transfer of positive energies to those in distress DOES make a difference. You are so much more powerful and have more resolve than you realize.

Be the instrument of change that you are. Work with others who are like-minded, so that you can lift each other higher than you could go alone. We are here supporting you with all our love. But it is time for you to raise yourself to the heights required to make the change.

Do not doubt yourself, Dear One. But do tend your human needs when your nerves are frayed and beginning to unravel. You are indeed a Divine being, but you are embodied in a physical form which has limitations and fragilities. Tend yourself when needed, ask for help, and when you are refreshed, you can do the same for another in their time of need.

You are loved beyond measure, Dear One. Know this in your heart. Do not let that mind of yours fill you with doubt, for you are so very special to us. Each and every one of you has our unconditional love and respect for this journey upon which you chose to embark.

Rest and replenish when needed. But never doubt your Divine nature and the strength and power which fill you now. Once again, we remind you that you were created in love, filled with and surrounded by love. That is all that exists. Do not allow your mind to tell you differently. This world is only a learning ground to enrich your soul and all the souls of creation.

Be at peace, Dear, Dear One.

Go within and find us there waiting to comfort you.

Feel the love surrounding you, pulsing through your veins.

It nourishes you and provides you with all that you need.

Dearest One With All of Thee.
