Finding Your Internal Peace

It is there, that place of peace.

It resides within your heart, calm and centered,

While the world around you seems chaotic and restless.

Visit there often, your heart,

Rest in the comfort of knowing

That is the place always filled with those who love you.

For you are never alone.

Dear One, during those times of distress, when you feel the world surrounding you is offering only fearful experiences, find the solace you seek within your heart. It is there where you can rest, knowing you are surrounded by loved ones; those who care more deeply for you than you can ever imagine.

For you are loved dearly, just as you are capable of loving others with the same intensity, the same focus, unconditionally.

You are never alone. That is impossible, though this physical existence fosters that illusion. But if you could shed that physical exterior and view your existence from our perspective, that of only energy and light, you would understand.

It is difficult, we acknowledge, for one who lives and remembers only a physical existence, to fathom an existence without a physical body. And yet, you leave your body quite often; those times when you daydream and find yourself elsewhere from where your physical body sits. Your consciousness also streams at night, as your physical body rests. Have you not had dreams that were so realistic, you have remembered many details and how they have affected you?

Dear One, when you sit quietly in meditation or contemplation, the physical world around you fades away, as your consciousness follows its own path forward.  Some of you may have even seen colors or images during these quiet times. For those who feel they cannot meditate due to the chatter of their minds, we give you encouragement. For even during the times when you attempt to sit quietly, with no perceived success, you have made a connection.

It is during these times that we are better able to reach you, even though your conscious mind may not be aware of the connection. It is during these times that you are holding sacred space, inviting connection, and we are there with you, en masse, even though you may not yet be aware. It is during these times that we honor you, for setting aside the time to be quiet.

Dear One, you were birthed into this physical world for a purpose, unique and individual for each of you. You were gently cradled before your transition into this physical world, just as you will be gently cradled as you return to us. You are a child of the Universe, constantly watched over, gently guided and urged to follow your path of remembrance. This is the path which allows you to come into your own power once again. This is the path which reveals to you the purpose of your physical life and the path to strengthening your connection to the All and to the Source.

When you feel alone, put your hand upon your heart and feel the warmth, the love, which is housed there, filled to capacity with loving kindness, compassion, and support. You have your own personal oasis in a sea of external chaos. Go there often to replenish and rejuvenate. Go there to open the connection to the All. Go there when you are seeking support and you will receive it.

Dear One, we are listening.

We are extending our tender embrace to comfort you.

Call upon us in your times of need.

You are never alone.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Do Not Doubt Yourself

doubt

Jiwoon Pak Moonset (2015) http://vjeranski.tumblr.com/

You have all the strength and resolve you need

To walk in this world with your head held high

With kindness and compassion for others

And to connect with those on your path

Who are there to move you forward this day.

Dear One, do not doubt that you are in the right place, at the right time, to share or receive the knowledge to be exchanged in this very instant. You are connected to the stream of consciousness, which flows through all of creation and allows forward movement, as lives intertwine. This is the energetic connection that permeates the seen and the unseen worlds, bringing them together in ways you cannot even fathom at this time.

You place such importance on this world which you see and interact with using your physical body. And yet, the unseen world is far greater in expanse and in how it affects your life. It is from these connective ethers that you receive the knowledge and gentle push, to move forward in a certain way. And it is from these unseen forces that you draw your strength, as you are surrounded by loving beings, every moment of your day.

You were created by the Divine and so have a permanent connection with the Divine. You, in fact, carry the Divine within you, as it is a part of your make-up. This part of you is from where all answers come. Your physical mind does indeed help navigate your way through this physical world. It may allow you to make scientific discoveries which make your physical life easier. However, it is your heart which helps you to use those discoveries in a manner that supports all of existence. It helps you to use these scientific discoveries with loving kindness, for the highest good of all.

Remember that you are an integral part of this stream of consciousness, as both a recipient and a contributor. You have been given unique gifts for this journey, which in combination with proper physical placement, will allow you to contribute to the All. Do not doubt this. For you must look broader, farther, than your immediate life, in order to understand the connection between all things.

Every interaction has an effect on the collective consciousness. It either contributes to the raising or the lowering of the energetic vibration of this world and beyond. This Universe is expanding and gently pulling you along in this process. Chaotic feelings and interactions may be due to the inexperience of being in these higher vibrations that are moving across this physical plane. It takes time to adjust to these changes and they are being made in the gentlest way possible.

Do not doubt yourself, for you will survive this day, this life, and continue on your personal journey, even beyond this physical existence. You are made of energy, as is the entirety of being. And energy is in constant flux, moving and flowing, as it interacts with its surroundings.

Dear One, you are a child of the Universe, one who is loved and gently cared for, as you make your progress on your individual path. Every day, you are offered the opportunity to learn or to teach a lesson. Your teachers can be any and all of those you encounter during your day, including Mother Nature, who is here to nurture you and provide for your physical body.

Do not doubt yourself, for judgment comes only from you. We offer you gratitude and love, and give you support when you call upon Us for help. Do not doubt yourself, and remember you are a Divine being. Do not doubt yourself, even in those darkest moments; for that is when the light within you will show you the way forward, out of that darkness, back into the joy of being.

Honor yourself and others.

Respect Mother Nature and all of her creatures.

And remember to dance to that Universal song which lives within you.

It plays continuously for you, offering you a joyful respite from your daily stresses.

Be of joy. Be at peace and know that love surrounds you always.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Let Your Heart Lead You

let your heart lead you

s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com

Can you open your heart

And allow its wisdom to flow?

It is where your connection to Source lies

Follow where it leads you

And walk in tandem with the Divine.

Dear One, can you turn off that mind of yours and allow your heart to speak in its gentle voice, to lead you forward? It does not shout, it does not judge, it does not cause self-doubt. Your heart speaks softly, in a whisper, in those quiet moments when you take a breath, a pause from your hectic life.

Enter the silence and allow it to lead you forward with grace and with love. Do not listen to the loud and boisterous, for often they are incited by Ego, who continues to see separation between all. Listen instead to the calming quiet space ever present in your day. It is just a breath away from the outer chaos that surrounds so many here upon this plane.

Your heart has much wisdom to share if you listen. It carries a torch of love for you to hold high as you take your next step, your next breath; as you choose how you will move through your day. That flame is your flame, your signature glow, that shines eternal, yes, even amidst times of doubt and uncertainty. It is your connection with the Divine. The spark of love, your Essence, created by the Divine, lives within your heart.

Your mind is a tool to help you to move through this world. It gives you the physical answers to your curiosity about this physical world. But listening to it alone will lead you astray. It may lead you to doors that can only be opened with the keys of your heart, in order to discover the truth of existence. When you reach an impasse, seek the answers from your heart, not your mind.

For the workings of your mind can only take you so far. To continue on your path, you require the wisdom which sits in your heart. How often have you spun your wheels, thinking and re-thinking about an incident or a personal challenge? By looking into your heart you will see where the next step lies. Perhaps self-forgiveness is required rather than remembrance of what you see as a ‘wrong’ action.

The joy you seek is within your heart, not your mind. The mind allows you to move through this world as a functioning human vessel. But your heart allows you to feel the joy of this physical human existence. Allow yourself to feel that joy of being with a loved one, of being in a place of beauty and peace. Allow that joy to permeate throughout your entire physical frame.

You were meant to live a life of joy even as you learned the lessons you came here to learn. Do not allow your mind to entrap you in the past or in the future. Instead, allow your heart to help you feel the joy of this very moment of existence. For in this very moment you are complete, you are loved and you are a Divine being.

Drop the weight of shame, of regret or worry. Give it to Us to incinerate in the flame of love. You no longer need this weight, as it is your time to shine, to soar and to share the joy of existence with the seen and the unseen world around you.

For We are here always, whether or not you see Us, We are here. And the best way to connect is through your heart. Allow it to open, even if those hinges are covered with rust, let Us join you in this sacred journey back to the Source.

Dear One, you are sacred.

You are a Divine being.

And you are loved unconditionally.

Allow Us to show you how to be your authentic self.

The One We know intimately and completely.

We will show you how to love if you have forgotten.

It begins with you. Take that step forward and begin to see who you truly are.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Synchronicity

synchronicity1

“Ascension,Everything Connected”     http://www.rick-lilley.deviantart.com

Dip your toe into the stream of consciousness

And allow yourself to be carried

To exactly where you need to be today

And trust that all is as it should be.

Dear One, how often have you noticed the synchronicities in your daily life? Are they chance encounters or are they caused by the lighting of energies across the web of connection? This is the web of connection that keeps you all close to the Divine, even at those times when you feel lost and in despair.

There is a purpose to your life and to all those in existence here upon this plane and in the entirety of creation. When you consider that all are connected across eternity by a pulsing flow of Divine energy, then can you accept that synchronicity is more complex than you might have considered.

The human mind was not intended to be able to grasp many of these concepts that are the backbone of your daily existence. There is more that is required to begin to understand and the answers are held in that quiet space between your words, thoughts and actions. It is here where the truth lies and where you can discover your true nature of being and how the universe works.

Can you accept that there is more to existence than what you can sense with your physical body; sight, sound, taste, touch, smell? It begins with opening your mind to infinite possibilities of connections and interactions between not only the seen, but also the unseen worlds.

As the vibration of this plane continues to increase, more are coming to help with the ongoing ascension that appears to be causing such chaos in your world. What is occurring would be called ‘growing pains’ in your world. But growth is necessary and a constant in your eternal life. It is the challenges that are laid before you, by your own doing, which give you the greatest opportunities to stretch to your greatest capacities.

Dear One, as this process continues to move forward, synchronicities will continue to increase in your life. Some may discard them as mere coincidences, but they are much more than that. They are the answers to your prayers, the help for which you asked, the required connections that contribute to not only your growth but to the growth of the All.

If you can fathom an intricate web of energetic pulses connecting all of creation, you can begin to see how the action of one affects the other; how a pull in one direction causes the entirety to shift, if only slightly. Can not a spider feel when an insect has touched down upon its web? So too can you feel, if only subconsciously, the pulse of energy flowing to and from you, across space and time.

Synchronicity occurs as a result, as an impetus, to move you gently from one area of growth to another. It is the stepping stone, the helping hand, the tool given to you to assist you in your purpose here in this physical existence. You do not move alone. Your insight and inspiration come from the group consciousness working together with you to move you and all of creation forward.

Accept these gifts given to you as you move through your day. You may not understand at first why this particular situation was presented to you. But as you move into and through it, you may begin to realize the gift of it all.

Dear One, you are connected to the All, but you also have free will to act or respond as you wish. It is all a part of the adventure of life here upon this plane. But when a synchronistic occurrence appears in your life, remember that you are being offered help and re-direction to stay on the path chosen by you a long time ago.

You receive and you contribute to this web and the result can often be a synchronistic moment.

Accept this gift of connection.

Give the gift of connection and open your mind

To the sacredness of every moment of existence.

Each moment filled with a pulse of love directed at you from the Divine.

From the Divine to the Divine, like to like.

One With All of Thee.

 

Awakening

The time for rest has passed

And new growth is emerging all around you.

Tender in its infancy,

Soon to gain strength

With nourishment and love.

Dear One, for many of you, this is the time of spring, when buds and blossoms begin to emerge after winter’s slumber. For many of you, this time of year brings with it hope of new beginnings and abundance. The cycle of life once again begins to spin its wondrous web of connection throughout the Universe.

As we have said before, you are a part of this natural cycle, since you are a part of the Mother; and you also are beginning to awaken from a long rest. The connection you have with the Mother gently pulls you along as you open up to a new day and a new cycle. This is why springtime brings joy to many of you, for you can feel the offering of endless possibilities and opportunities.

The darkness of the rest time purposely leads you inward towards self-examination and self-realization; providing a restorative time of quiet and contemplation. During these times you begin to discover more intimate parts of yourself, previously unexamined or unknown, and the forces of the Universe gently guide you through the reflective process.

Now you are being encouraged to take that leap of faith, in yourself and in the Universe, to move forward using that new-found inner strength that is now rising to the surface of your being. You are more than you have ever imagined. You have greatness within that is beginning to appear in your daily life. You, Dear One, are a child of the Universe, and with that comes all the love, the support and the knowledge of the Entirety of Being.

Can you follow the lead of the Mother and allow the warmth, the light of the love shining above you, to urge you forward? Can you allow the blossoms of your gifts to unfold and gently be pollinated to be shared with others around you? Can you allow the fruits of your restorative period to now emerge with all their sweet nectar?

It is your time to awaken in all of your beauty, in all of your glory, as you are gently urged forward to be the wondrous being you truly are. Remember your place in this world. Look around you and know that all of creation is awakening beside you and urging you to do the same. It is impossible not to open your petals to love as the web of connection pulls you forward. It is time.

Feel the joy around you. Honor the gentle awakenings of the Mother as she reveals her tender leaves, filled with possibilities of beauty and strength. Everything before you is a part of the Mother, a part of the Source. Honor and respect all sentient beings as they continue on their individual life cycles. Honor and respect your own life cycle, without fear, for you are not alone in this.

You are surrounded by loving beings, appearing to you through the Mother, through your companions, and yes, through those flashes of light you might see out of the corner of your eye. Love surrounds you, Dear One. Love fills your being and it is beginning to flow upwards and outwards, just as the sap of the trees begins to rise at this time.

Allow your true self to emerge in all of its glory. Allow yourself to be pulled forward, gently, by the tug of the heart-strings of the Source, of the Mother, of the All That Is. The Light is calling to you. Can you hear it? Can you feel it stirring something deep within you? Oh, loving, dearest One. It is your time to shine.

Look towards the light and allow it to draw you out, out of the deep slumber where you have resided for the recent past. Open yourself to the possibilities of life that lay on the path before you.

Trust.

Have faith.

And allow the love to flow.

Remember you are a being of love

And only love.

Dear One With All of Thee.

The Embodiment of Love

Who are you?

Are you just a physical form that walks this earth?

Or are you more than that?

Is there more substance beyond the physical?

Is there an unseen component to your true nature?

Who are you?

Dear One, you are the embodiment of love, existing in a physical form, in order to experience self-discovery in a manner only possible on this physical plane. Your true nature is one of spirit. Your true self is free-flowing, able to communicate without words, able to feel and accept the loving nature of the Universe.

When you became embodied for this physical existence, you forgot that you were love incarnate. You forgot that you were created in love, that you are surrounded by love and that you will return to love after your physical journey. The amnesia was necessary, otherwise the lessons you chose to learn would not be possible.

You have individual lessons, but there are also collective lessons for all who are present on this plane at this time. And you are all at different parts of your path of forward movement. But despite this, all are moving forward together, with those of you further along reaching back to help those still struggling.

If you can grasp the concept of your true nature, then you will be able to accept that the physical form is only a tool, with limitations. But you can reach beyond these physical limitations, using the energetic gifts that you have received. They all begin with love, for that is your true nature. Because each and every one of you has a distant memory of your life beyond this physical world, you all respond to the gift of love offered to you while still in this physical form. Distant memories are stirred by these offerings of love.

Love is a feeling, an energetic force, which is more powerful than anything else in the Universe. Why? It is because all of creation comes from love. It is the source of all being. That is not to say that it cannot be masked or wounded, altered in some way by unseen forces. But it can never be destroyed and always exists underneath any perceived negativity.

The key is to encourage that love to emerge to its natural state by surrounding the person, the situation, the physical entity with love. The memory is there. But it may be buried so deeply it will take the combined efforts of many to jar it from its prison.

This is what is happening currently in your physical world. So many have forgotten what true love feels like. They have forgotten their natural state of being. Instead they have embraced the limitations of the physical world and misplaced their understanding of true power. They have forgotten the strength, the power, of love and how love can overwhelm any other force.

You may be embodied in a physical form, but that does not limit the power of your love. This is why we so often ask you to send love with every breath that you take; why we ask you to think loving thoughts with compassion and forgiveness. These are the powerful unseen forces within each and every one of you.

Be not mistaken. You are receiving love, you are being surrounded by love, every moment of your day. The source of this comes from those on other planes, who exist at higher vibrations. But it also comes from your physical companions who are quietly working to help you raise your own vibrations every day.

There is an infinite number of loving beings wrapping you in love and encouraging you to find your way. This journey is not just a physical journey for you. It is a Universal journey for the collective consciousness. Just as you encourage a child to take that first step, so too, do a plethora of enlightened souls encourage you to do the same.

Accept this truth about yourself and your true nature. Accept this truth about the loving nature of the Universe. Accept this truth that you are traveling with loving beings who are offering help, with every step that you take.

Accept this help, for the love given to you is unconditional. And as you continue to grow, you will understand the power of your own love sent out to others in need. It is an infinite web of connection and learning, of which you are a key part.

You, Dear One, are love and only love, embodied in a physical form for personal growth. Do not accept the limitations of the physical body. Use the power of your true nature, one of love, to change this world. We are here with you always.  Feel our loving embrace surrounding you.

Always.

 

Uncertainty and Self Doubt

uncertainty

eBay.co.uk

Do you wait for complete certainty

Before you act or speak?

Upon reflection, do you question

if you did or said the right thing?

Is absolute certainty necessary for forward movement?

Dear One, this physical plane is a ground for learning and self-discovery. You came here to learn how to be in a world entirely different from where you came. Instead of an atmosphere of unconditional love, you are finding your way in a world of dualities, where your inner-connectedness is more difficult to see.

Moving forward can be difficult when you are not sure if the next step you take is the right step; if you are not sure if the actions you already took were the best choices. Indecision can prevent you from taking any action at all. Self-doubt can cause regret and uncertainty of events past.

Understand that any new situation is providing you an opportunity for growth. When you stay within the circle of familiarity, you are operating out of habit. In fact, you may not even be conscious of certain actions. You need not engage because you have done the same thing so often before.

Think of how often you travel to a familiar destination and once there have no memory of the journey. Since you have done this so many times before, your mind, your thoughts, can be miles away, in the future or in the past, anywhere but in the present moment. And yet you arrive safely.

For this reason, changing your routine, stepping outside of your comfort zone, is necessary for growth. Be it a new environment, new acquaintances, or a new way of moving through familiar territory, all of these are conditions for growth. Do you chastise a young child for exploring new avenues, stretching their physical limits, or exploring new ways of expressing themselves?

A child does not wait for a time of complete certainty nor does she reflect upon actions with self-doubt. Quite the opposite, she is excited to be exploring the possibilities for new ways of being. But, you say, this child needs to learn to be cautious to avoid injury or hurt. And so, you keep a watchful eye to assure safety during her self-exploration.

How is that child different from you? Are you not a child of the Universe? Are you not surrounded by loving guides who are here to help guide you as you move forward? Can you move forward with more faith, in yourself and your connection to the All; with faith in the guidance you receive every moment of your day?

There can be no mistakes made here upon this plane. There are only opportunities for growth. And often the lesson is one of forgiveness, humility or non-judgment. These are lessons many of you came here to learn. Or perhaps the lesson is one of self-love, empowerment or neutrality. Any potential lesson will be difficult to learn if you hesitate to act without perfection; seeking it in yourself or others. If this physical plane offered perfection it would not be the wondrous place of learning that it is.

You might try on a different way of being and realize that it is not the right way to be. Lesson learned.  You might take a chance and speak out in a way you never have before and be amazed at the results. Lesson learned. Or you might approach another who you perceive as much different from yourself and realize the similarities in your lives. Lesson learned.

Dear One, do not hide behind a façade of familiarity and safety. Where is the growth in living a life of repetition and hesitation? Have faith in yourself and in your guides who are with you at all times. Spend quiet time with them so that you can begin to better trust the connections you have with the All.

Act with pure intent. And in times of reflection, think of the lessons provided to you over the course of your day. The moment of absolute certainty about a particular decision may never come. But you can still make a choice and embrace the lesson it provides you.

There are no wrong paths, for all paths move you forward and back to the Source. All paths.

Be like that child on a journey of adventure and self-exploration and stretch. And whatever the lessons learned, be they lessons of humility, forgiveness or self-empowerment, offer gratitude for them. And continue forward.

Be bold, be the courageous soul that you are.

Trust that we are here with you always.

And call upon us, for we are here to help and guide you.

Dear One, Dear One With All of Thee.
