Expansion

The Universe is in constant motion

Expanding at all times

Into unknown territory

Exploring the possibilities of being.

The question today is

Are you?

Dear One, it is so easy to fall into a routine, repeating old patterns that are familiar and comfortable. But how does that afford you the possibilities for growth? If the world around you is changing every moment of every day, how can you not?

Your physical body sheds old cells and renews daily. The air around you moves in different patterns each day. The energetic vibrations of this world and beyond are constantly increasing in frequency. Over time these adjustments have been slow to match your comfort level. But the time has come for expansion to accelerate. And this expansion includes you and your personal life.

What does this mean for you? Consider your current state of life and if it serves you? Are you depleted energetically at the end of each day? Upon reflection at day’s end, do you feel as if you have grown? Or are you just repeating old motions time and time again, without thought, without emotion, just robotic existence in a world filled with possibilities?

Dear One, review your life and ask yourself when the last time was that you stepped out of your comfort zone? You are an eternal being, but your existence upon this physical plane is limited. The time spent here is a gift to you for rapid growth and physical beauty. This time will end and will you regret your lack of engagement as you leave this plane of existence?

How often have you chosen not to try something new out of fear, out of boredom, out of exhaustion from the constant repetition of your life? Have your senses dulled, your communication skills faltered, your gratitude to experience a new day with all of its possibilities dissolved into nothingness?

The Universe is expanding and that includes you and the possibilities for you to add to the knowledge of the collective consciousness. Rest, indeed, if your physical form requires replenishment. But ask yourself what can be changed so that you are not so depleted of the joy of existence. You are a most powerful being, divine in your connection to the Source, and so why would you turn away from the gifts, the opportunities presented to you each day?

Dear One, pay attention to how you approach each day, each opportunity for engagement. Change your perspective of how you see your world and your placement, your role to play in this web of connection. You have been given free rein to explore and grow, but the time has come where the knowledge and the skills you mastered will be needed as expansion accelerates.

Stop, take a deep breath and reflect upon how you have chosen to exist on this physical plane. And if you are not satisfied where you are, then ask why you have not made a change. Remember that your mind limits the possibilities while your heart opens up a wealth of opportunities for you.

You have power over your mind, rather than the reverse, which is how so many of you have existed for so long. Begin by changing your perspective. And if you require help, ask. 

Take a moment to write down your thoughts/concerns every morning and every evening. Then discard the paper. Do this every day to remove the fear and anxiety from within you. See those thoughts as something separate from you as you discard them and observe how it begins to change your life. This is how you reclaim your power over your mind.

Allow your internal flame to glow once again with its greatest intensity and power. Accept this power from within. And understand that opening your heart to new experiences provides you with opportunities to connect with other divine beings. And the results of these connections on this physical plane are more powerful than you realize.

Open your heart

To new experiences

And new ways of being.

Reclaim your power as a divine being

As this period of Universal expansion accelerates.

You are ready

You are needed.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

This Day

pbs.twimg.com

This day contains

Moments of stillness

Nuggets of joy

And a plethora of peace

Whenever you choose

To accept them.

Do so often.

And share these moments

With the ones whom you love.

Dear One, you are the one in charge of how you move through your day. No one other. You are the one who has the choice to see beauty or darkness. No one other. And you are the one who has the ability to send either love or fear into your world. Which will you choose today?

The world you see is viewed through whichever lens you choose. It is a world of duality. Which means that there is both light and darkness to see. You have a choice to move through your day breathless, with fear or anger. Or you can breathe deeply, sending love outwards with every breath. It is entirely your choice what kind of world surrounds you.

You still do not realize the power which you hold to create your own world. Yes, you live in a physical world with billions of other incarnated souls. But you also are connected to a world not yet visible to most, which vibrates at a higher frequency. A world of love and light and peace.

You are capable of settling in either of these worlds every moment of your day. For you have a foot in both worlds, more heavily weighted in the physical at this time for most of you. And yes, this physical world is a classroom provided for your own self-realization. And the time is now for you to graduate to the next level. You are ready.

As long as you are incarnated in this physical vessel, you will always have a foot in this physical world. But you are ready to more evenly share the weight of your consciousness in the unseen world as well. What does this mean to you? It is simply retrieving your power which you have so readily given to this physical world.

You are currently a slave to time, which does not exist in other realms. How do you break this bondage? Begin by acknowledging that there is plenty of time, by believing that all will occur at the most perfect time.

For remember your connections spread across infinity and often pieces of others’ lives must fall into place before your experience can occur. Rather than rushing to your destination, can you take a breath and say, ‘I am on my way’ and calmly complete your journey.

This physical world encourages you to re-act to others, to give your power to them by allowing them to cause you anger or fear. And you often respond in kind.

When, if you were weighted more in the other realms, you would understand that responding in kindness and compassion can cause THEM to re-act in kind/kindness. Or at the very least, to stop the negative exchange and allow it to become a more loving one.

You have the power to do this, Dear One. And yet, so many of you continue to give away your power rather than use it to raise the energetic vibrations of any exchange.

For every physical being present in your life creating strife and discord, there are multitudes of others who are quietly working to make a change. To send love out into this world and beyond. And for every incarnated soul who causes you despair, there are a plethora of unseen hands reaching out to hold you close in loving embrace.

This is the truth of your existence and it is time for you to begin to practice placing more weight, giving more attention to the loving environment rather than the chaotic physical world around you.

We have told you this before, Dear One, that YOU are the one who can change this world. One step at a time. One breath at a time. Gently, quietly, lovingly. Every moment of your day provides opportunities to do so.

Begin today in this very moment. Send love out to your world, to those you love. And to those with whom you have had many challenges. All are experiencing their own personal lessons.

And those heavy loads can be lightened so easily by recognizing that you have a foot in both realms. That you have more power than you realize. It is just a matter of a shift in consciousness. Give more weight to love than fear. To kindness rather than animosity. To compassion rather than judgment.

Change your perspective

Change your world.

Embrace the unseen help

Which surrounds you at all times.

Open your heart to the possibilities

Of love, of joy, of peace.

It begins with your next breath.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Rest

trendhunter.com

This world you have created

Appears to require constant motion.

With little time for rest and reflection.

Why have you created this world for yourself?

Dear One, you are incarnated into a physical body with its own vulnerabilities and limitations. Besides the physical components, there are also the emotional components. And both of these require time for rest and reflection.

We have already spoken to you of silence and the need for quiet times in your life, your day, for you to connect with the Source, with your higher self, for guidance and comfort. The constant bombardment of energies you experience when in motion wear you down just as water works on stone. The constant motion can weaken your resolve and affect your connection to the All.

Add to this the changes in the veil that separate realms, the awakening which all of you are experiencing in various degrees and perhaps you can begin to see the need for rest. Your body requires time to acclimate to the energetic changes occurring throughout the Universe.

You continue to speak of the lack of time in your day to stop and take a breath. But, Dear One, time is an illusion. And as you allow your own personal awakening to occur, you will begin to see a shift in how you day evolves.

The physical forms which you inhabit require time to adjust to the new energies coming forth upon your plane of existence. Without this time of adjustment, they will weaken and cause more discomfort than is necessary. We say to you again, why do you take greater care of the vehicles you use or the garments you wear than the sacred vessel which contains your very soul?

Can you take a step back from this physical world and just pause to allow the breath of the All to fill your very lungs and entire physical being? Can you imagine your exhale being taken in by the Mother and exchanged with her outbreath to give you sacred air to fill your being? This exchange occurs with every breath that you take. And yet, how often do you offer gratitude to Her for the very breath of life?

Consider also, the energies you spend on emotional regurgitation of a perceived wrong. Do you not realize that every time you remember an uncomfortable interaction that you help it to secure a stronger, deeper hold upon your psyche? Each repetition drives it deeper, allowing it to become inculcated within your energetic field.

Can you instead, give yourself time for calm reflection and realize that all you meet are struggling, finding their way? And most often the cause of the interaction had nothing to do with you. Can you allow another the mistakes, the detours from grace as they move through their own awakening? Can you cease judgment of another as you realize you know not everything that caused the behavior?

Can you find compassion rather than judgment? The answer is yes. But it takes time to stop and breathe, perhaps to quietly reflect with a trusted guide, be they incarnated or from another realm.

Dear One, there is so much joy surrounding you if only you are able to change your perception. Can you rest in the arms of the Beloved and allow that love to fill your very being? You are just one of many brave souls who chose a life upon this plane at this time. And you are needed. Your strength, your resolve, your compassion and non-judgment are needed at this time.

You are the one who can help change this world by being a conduit of love. And it begins by loving yourself, by accepting the power of love which surrounds you and fills every pore of your being. Allow that fear to fall away. Spend time in the company of those who lift your spirits be they animal, mineral or plant. For all are connected. All are One and All were created in love.

Dear One, take a moment as you read this and breathe in the Air of Life, the Breath of God, the Love of the Oneness and allow it to fill your entire being. Then send that love out into the world. Allow it to coat every inch of this globe upon which you live. Imagine a luminous light shimmering with a kaleidoscope of color hovering over all within your sight and beyond.

You, Dear One, are capable of so much.

Accept the love which surrounds you

And share it with the world.

Feel the embrace of the Beloved

Filling you with love and support.

You are a part of this.

You are One.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Silence

It is the birthplace of ideas

The platform for observation

Both external and internal

It is when your connection with the All

Is the strongest.

Dear One, how often during the day do you allow for silence to engulf you? How often do you cease from speaking and just listen? Listen to your inner voice and the voice of others, too timid to speak.

Your intuition flourishes in times of silence as your connections to your higher powers are allowed to spread their wings.

The world in which you live is filled with stimulation which can encourage you to add to that with your words and with constant activity. But in doing so, is there something that is lost? How can you hear your inner voice speak with all the activity occurring around you? Is it really necessary for you to speak? When was the last time you listened, to others, to the silence?

For it is within those silent moments that the depth of knowledge can be reached. It is within those silent moments that you will begin to notice that which was overlooked in all of the activities around you.

Many of you fear silence or are unaccustomed to its merits. Can you sit with your loved one in mutual silence and feel comfortable? Is just sharing the same space enough for you to show your love? Often these times can be the most intimate. For while there is nothing outwardly occurring, there is always an energetic exchange between you.

Dear One, understand that some of your best work can be done in silence. For this is a time when you can draw from your inner knowledge, your higher self, to produce your most beautiful and sacred creations. It may allow you the opportunity to hear the sacred OM, the universal song, the guidance you need to move forward on your path.

Ask yourself why you require this constant stimulation, either from others or towards others. Is there a lack of self-love which requires you to be in the midst of activity at all times? If so, know that you are loved deeply, not only by the Oneness. But also by the incarnation of the Oneness in all of those who surround you in physical forms. You are loved more than you realize and any doubt comes from within.

Those who love you often do not need anything but your presence in their lives. For they can feel the love emanating from within you. And that love gives them the support that helps them move through their own lives with confidence that someone is there for them.

Do not feel the need to fill the perceived void created by silence. For it is an incredible source of insight and knowledge. Observe and gently encourage the world around you to reveal what it has to say to you. You will learn more than you knew possible in those quiet moments of your life.

Dear One, you are most perfect and loved dearly just as you are. There is no need to entertain or to impress others with your words or actions. Often the most wondrous gift you can give others and yourself is the act of listening. For there is much left unsaid in this active world in which you live. Much that requires the encouragement of silence to be shared with you or with others.

Learn to be comfortable with periods of silence in your day. And if you do not enjoy being alone with your silence, ask yourself why. Why do you require such activity, such stimulation to feel at ease in this world? But, of course, you will need to sit in the silence to receive the insight, the answer to that question.

Know that a slower pace, a quieter environment, a conscious effort to be in silence has many wondrous benefits. You may be surprised to discover all that you have missed before allowing these changes to move into your day.

Dear One, give yourself the gift of silence. It may be exactly what was needed to give you the answers you seek.

You are One

You are connected

The knowledge within will emerge

During those times of quiet.

Give yourself the gift of silence

And see what transpires.

It may surprise you.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Listen

Open your heart and listen.

To the guidance that resides within.

And gently use that guidance

To speak to others

To guide them forward

Until they are able

To connect in the same manner.

Dear One, all are on the same path. All are One. But each of you is in a different state of awakening as you find your path home. For those of you who have reached a certain equilibrium with your internal guidance, it is time to listen. Time to speak.

The world in which you live is moving through a cycle of growth which appears chaotic and defeating. You may feel helpless when in fact, you are in the perfect position to help. It begins with listening to that voice within, that voice which comes from your heart, from your connection with the All. You all have heard it, though many still do not trust it.

It is the voice, the feeling, the urge to do something, to say something, to go somewhere. At this time in your own evolution, this guidance may encourage you to gently, though often firmly, take the next step forward. Can you begin to listen and trust what you are being told? Can you begin to trust your own power in contributing to the growth of this world and the realms beyond?

Dear One, you have already had experiences which you question, synchronicities which have caused you to wonder, was it real? Do not compare yourself to others, saying that you are not worthy, are not evolved enough spiritually to have this experience. Do not feel this experience is an anomaly. For it can and does happen in your life every day, if you listen.

By holding back and not saying or doing or going where you are guided, you are allowing fear to take charge. The world needs you and the smallest gift of kindness, of honestly speaking your truth, or of being where you are led can make a most wondrous difference in the world as you see it. You are the solution. For as you move forward, you allow the space, the opportunity for others to do the same.

By doing nothing, by questioning your worth, you are helping to hold this world in its current state. Remember that you are connected, not only with all sentient beings you see, but also to all sentient beings who are unseen. And you have support to be successful in your efforts, in your life.

Remember the cascade in life which begins from the smallest of actions. Acting in response to your guidance, in the best way you can, will create movement for someone who may be stuck. The response may not be what you anticipated, but if done in love, the action will begin the process of awakening for another. And as more and more embodied souls begin to awaken, the energetic vibration rises throughout this world and beyond.

The time is now for you to begin to accept your role in the evolution of the All That Is. Allow yourself to be the conduit of love helping others to begin to glimpse the infinite possibilities in their lives. Understand that often it is your mere presence that is all which is required to support forward movement.

Wrap yourself in light. Wrap all whom you meet in light. Wrap your world in light. And if there is an upcoming situation which causes you trepidation or fear, wrap that situation in light. It can be as simple as that.

You are needed, Dear One. You chose to be present in this world at this time. And we gently encourage you to reclaim your power. The power which comes from love. Act in love and have no expectations of the outcome. For if your intent was pure, you are on your way.

And as you continue to grow, and you will, you may reflect upon past actions and see how the next time, a small change would be kinder, gentler and more powerful. Movement is required to prevent stagnation. Perfection is present in every interaction, if only to allow for more growth and reflection.

Trust your connection. Honor your own truth. You have already grown so much and will be supported to continue on this journey of self-realization. What is found at the end of the journey? Something indescribable with human words. The realization that love is all there is.

Trust yourself and your connection

Understand that growth is required

And is occurring every moment of your life.

Choose to make a difference

By coming from your own truth

And from love.

That is all there is, Dear One.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Have I Done Enough?

aceoni.deviantart.com

You want to help

To make this a better world.

But you do not feel

That what you do is enough.

Is it?

Dear One, the world in which you live is in transition. There is much fear and animosity, judgment and blame. There is a lack of compassion and empathy. More thoughts of self-preservation rather than community and connection. Have you done enough to help change this world?

Understand that each and every one of you has been provided with a unique gift. The life you have lived up to this moment in time has taught you much, about yourself, about the world. There are experiences that you have had which filter the way in which you see your world. Is your vision of the world an accurate assessment of how things really are?

Few of you will be in a position previously held by many of your greatest leaders. However, the personal experiences you have had can and will make a difference in someone’s life. And you must remember that there are many who are quietly helping to change your world, without recognition, without fanfare. You are one of these people.

The very act of living your life in a most purposeful way with kindness, strength and compassion will often affect more than you realize. And how you affect others may never be known to you. For often it is a brief encounter with a stranger, a small token of kindness, an exhibit of strength during a trying time which guides another forward.

For not only do others see what you have done in that moment and consider emulating your actions. There is also that energetic component to your presence and the energetic exchange that occurred during the interaction which can be so powerful.

Your scientists are now beginning to talk about the unseen world and how it encompasses much more than the world which is visible to you. Remember this. It is time for you to pay attention to the energy which surrounds you and which you emit as you move through your day.

Great sweeping actions are not necessary to move this world forward. It is often the smallest of actions which can change a life. Because of the experiences that you have had over your lifetime, you may be in a perfect position to offer guidance, or at the very least, compassion to another who is struggling.

Be aware, also, that you are constantly being gently guided forward through synchronicity to situations, to others; to interactions which can provide the perfect lesson for each of you involved. Remember that the gift you have received may be dormant until you have had your own challenging experiences. It may not be until this time when you blossom into the person who can provide so much to another.

Dear One, you do not exist alone but in a matrix of consciousness which is in constant motion. Your thoughts and words are just as powerful to the movement of this matrix as your deeds. Remember this as you reflect upon your life, your worthiness or when a harsh judgment arises about another. We will continue to impress upon you the power of these energetic exchanges.

You are an expression of the Divine, Dear One, who is capable of creating a world much different than the one you see. And it begins with how you live your life, how you see yourself and how much you trust the synchronicities which occur.

You have the metaphor of a snowball gaining mass as it rolls down a mountainside. So too, can a small action of yours begin the process of change, in a positive or a negative way. The choice is yours.

As you move through your day, through your life, understand that every moment has the potential for creating change. Even if it is to send out love with every breath you take. The efforts need not be large and expansive. They just need to be loving and kind. For this is your true nature and has the greatest power of all.

Accept the gift of you

Accept the gift of others

Who have passed through your life.

Whether the interactions have caused

Solace or strife

There is still a lesson there

Which can help change your world.

It begins with you

Possible with every breath you take.

Walk in love and gratitude

And change the world.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Choices

gettyimages.com

Every moment of your day

You make choices.

What guides those choices?

And how do those choices

Affect your life?

Dear One, as you inhabit this physical world you have the free will to make infinite choices every day. The choices that you make clear your path forward as they affect how your life evolves. What guided those decisions that you made? Was it love, fear, faith or trust? And should you judge those choices as good or bad?

Each and every one of you came here with a lesson to learn. And in the process of learning that lesson, you often are an unknowing teacher for others. How can this not be true as you all are connected through the web of consciousness?

The key to this is how observant you and those around you are to what is occurring right before your eyes. There is always an energetic, subconscious portion to every occurrence in your life. And each of you will absorb this no matter what. But the true substance of the lesson is revealed only through observation and reflection. And often this reflection is done in hindsight.

Consider this. How often do you mimic the actions of another without thinking? These might be choices made by a parent or an elder that were often done when you were a child. As that child, you repeated those actions without considering that there were other options. They were familiar and how things were always done. So of course, you continued following the same path.

But often, that way of living is not the best path for you. And it takes much reflection and courage to realize that you must take another course, to live your life another way. Making that choice may be difficult and frightening as you do not know what lies ahead. These are the times when being your authentic self and following your heart will free you to follow your own true path.

There is a great lesson in this for you. And also for those who encourage you to continue following the more familiar ways of being. The unknown lays before you with equal possibilities of causing you pain or joy. And often you are meant to follow this part of your path alone. Do you have the faith, the trust in yourself, in your connection with the All, to take a chance?

Dear One, all paths lead to the same end. It is just that some paths are richer in what they provide for you. Some paths are filled with numerous lessons unattainable if you remained on the familiar course. Yes, challenges may lie ahead. In fact, that is most assuredly a given.

But in facing those challenges and moving through them, you will find a strength, a resolve, a character trait that you did not realize you had. And in making this choice, you often are providing an example for others, encouraging them to do the same.

The possibilities of your life experiences are infinite, Dear One. So, if you are not comfortable where you sit at this moment, then make a choice to change your position. Reflect upon the path that has led you to where you are. Is your life serving you as it is? Are you serving others in your current state of being?

But remember also, that often, a pause is needed before taking another leap forward. This pause may be necessary to give you time for rest and reflection. This pause may be necessary for the matrix to rearrange itself in order to provide you with the best choices. Everything within the web may not yet be in place to lay your best path before you.

Dear One, do not compare your life to that of others. For each of you is unique in the gifts you have and in the lessons that will fill your life. If you are observant and reflective, trust that you will be led forward exactly to where you need to be to take your next step. And if a pause is necessary, accept it with the faith that it is exactly what is required at this time of your life.

Each choice made will provide a lesson. Observe your choices and those of others without judgment. Be kind to yourself and others. For each life lived contributes an important piece of knowledge to the collective consciousness. Each life lived is worthy of respect. And each life lived affects you in some way, regardless of your awareness of this connection.

Live your life to its fullest.

Embrace the challenges

With the richness each contributes

To your life.

Move forward with faith and courage.

And give gratitude for each lesson

Provided to you or to others.

All are connected.

All are loved.

Dear One With All of Thee.
