Your Place in the World


grant collier. northern lights 2

You are a drop of dew on a leaf

Glistening in the sunlight,

Transforming to a raindrop

To quench the thirst of a parched land.

You are a grain of sand

You are a ray of sunshine

You are a gentle breeze

You are all of these and more


For you are One With All of Thee


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Be at peace with this, Dear One.

Dear One with All of Thee.


What of ………Purpose?

Why are you here?

What must you do to live a purposeful life?

Are you doing enough?

Or must you change your way of being?

Dear One, your life here upon this plane is an experiential life to be lived with peace and joy. The peace and joy arise when you live as your authentic self, without shame, without fear, only with love. Can you act with pure intent, allowing your inner radiance to shine in every interaction you have?

You are the Divine Incarnate. This means that you are filled with grace, with light, with love. You are connected to the All securely and completely. The feelings of disconnect come when you allow Ego to convince you otherwise. When you allow Ego to tell you that you are not enough of this, or too much of that; this is when you begin to falter.

Dear One, you are perfect in every way and your purpose in being here is to learn more about yourself. Again, we tell you that you are filled with a radiance that shines brightly, apparent to us as we follow you, encouraging you, reminding you of your true nature. Your true state of being.

Your presence here upon this plane in every situation of your daily life makes a difference. Your very presence contributes to the learning of others, to the growth of the Oneness of All. Your existence matters! Your every breath is filled with love. We can see this even though you may not.

You are teacher, you are student, you are comforter, you are the one in need of comfort. The cycle, the sacred spiral continues throughout your life as you take on different roles every day. Every moment is a sacred moment never to be quite the same again. And in each moment you are a part of the forward movement of the entire cosmos of being. The changes that occur on this plane because of your existence affect all other planes as well, for all are connected.

We tell you this not to fill you with fear of not doing enough, of not being responsible enough. But to impress upon you that your life, exactly as it is unfolding, your life matters. Your purpose is to continue on your journey of self-realization and as you move down that path, you help others on their individual journeys.

Trust, trust that the lessons you came here to learn will come to you in many ways. And they will continue to come until you have learned them. Give gratitude to those who came into your life in order for you to experience those lessons. For as they help you on your way, their contract has been served, the contract agreed upon before you came here. In the heat of this learning process you may not understand or see this connection. But after the emotion, after the immediacy of the interactions, upon reflection, we ask you to see how those experiences allowed you to grow.

It is the same with you as you help teach others, often unbeknownst to you. In the intricate web of connection here upon this plane, a brief encounter with another may bring a mighty lesson. Trust that all is unfolding as it should. Trust that the ebb and flow of your life is woven to perfection in allowing you to follow your own chosen path. Trust that you will survive and grow in leaps and bounds as you navigate through your personal web of connection.

Dear One, your purpose is to live your life in love, without fear of the unknown.

For in every new situation is the possibility of a joyful moment of creation.

Be at peace with who you are and allow your inner radiance to shine.

You are a part of the Divine.

You are Love.

You are Light.

You are One With All of Thee.

Peaceful Living

Are you breathing every day?

Do you feel your feet upon the ground with every step?

Do you see the beauty around you everywhere?

Dear One, it is up to you to choose whether or not you want a peaceful or chaotic life. It is your free will to choose. We are here to help you move forward on your path, but it is you who must make the choice. Are you able to say each morning upon awakening, Today I choose joy and peace in my life?

You are the captain at the helm and we are your crew willing to guide you through the rough waters into a smooth, serene and calm inlet. A place of respite to catch your breath and scan the horizon. Look for the calm waters, for they are there, every day, just below the surface, at the center of your being. For within you is the master of your life with the key to your serenity. This has always been the case. You have just forgotten to look within.

There is so much activity and energy coming at you from outside sources, you forget the peace within…a place where you can go to rest, though not to hide. For remember, you came here to experience a physical life with all of its nooks and crannies; all of its opportunities and possibilities. Indeed you are a courageous soul with much strength and power. Do not forget who you are and why you are here.

When you feel overwhelmed, take a moment to stop and breathe, in and out, in and out. For if you are tense, you may have forgotten how powerful and soothing that breath can be for you. Close your eyes and see that internal flame of light. For it is there and will never go away, though it might flicker at times of uncertainty. It is that internal light of yours that guides us to you. For each of you has a signature glow that is only yours, unique to you always through eternity. No matter where you are, which existence or plane you have chosen to experience, you always have your signature glow. The light within you is who you truly are.

If you imagine the Source as a magnificent entity of light emanating love across infinity, you are a part of that Source. Your internal flame came from that Source and so you are a part of the All. That can never change. And your experiences here and in other destinations bring back knowledge to the Source, experiential knowledge collected by you. And you WILL return to the loving embrace of the Source. For like returns to like.

There are many planes, many opportunities for growth, and an infinite number of flames of light, just like you, across the entire collective consciousness. You are never alone, Dear One and you are a part of the Magnificence of Being as is all of creation. Everything you see, everything you hold, everything you hear or smell, all of this is a part of the Source.

Contemplate upon this information, for it may be new to many of you. And yet, in your contemplation there may be a tiny spark of recognition in these words. For truth has a way of revealing itself to you at a time when you are ready to hear it. We feel this is that time for many of you.

Today, choose peace and joy in all that you do.

Today, feel the internal strength rising within you.

Today, allow the smile of recognition to emerge from within.

For now and always, you are One With All of Thee.


You are not alone

You have never been alone

And you have more strength, more courage than you realize


Dear one, you are one of the courageous souls who chose to come here to this plane at this time. You chose to come to help, to witness the shift in consciousness that is now beginning to occur here.

Not only do you have our support and love, realize that you have the strength, the courage to be supportive of others who are just awakening to who they really are.

The shift is occurring and there is much rejoicing that this planet is moving forward to a place that is greater, more beautiful than any of you have envisioned. Unbeknownst to many of you, we have been here throughout time helping you, supporting you when you felt that you were at an impasse. We have been here for you when you did not have the energy to even raise your foot to take another step. And we shall continue to be here for you throughout the coming days.

Can you, can you envision a world of streaming light, not only from above, but from within? You, you are the reason that your world is at this juncture, that it has turned the corner and will continue to move forward into the light. Be not fearful of the darkness that is trying to take control, for it will not succeed. Though it will try very hard to turn back the clock to darker days. Know, please know, that in spite of how things may appear at this very moment, that light and love will prevail over all.

You, Dear one, are the champion who in tandem with our efforts, have been courageous enough to shine your light and love in tumultuous times. You Dear one, have chosen love over fear. You have chosen to see who you really are and how you are connected to the Oneness with all of the knowledge and strength than comes with that connection. Dear one, do not waiver now as you are gaining more strength every day.

Send love out into the world, not fear. Understand that all who are present on this planet come from the same Source ,from where you came and will return as you also will return. Wrap these lost souls in light, not fear, not anger. Do not feed the fire, but douse it instead with love. You have our support in doing this and we shall continue to walk alongside of you.

Remember that you are a being of light; you are here only temporarily to teach, to learn, to experience. Your true nature is one of light and though there seem to be many who have lost their way and forgotten that, there are enough of you who have awakened to shine the beacon of light upon this world. So that it can continue in its forward movement. Do not despair, do not feel that you are alone. Remember that we are here supporting you. Call upon us and we will proudly and gratefully lend a helping hand.

You are the true beacon of light that will illuminate the path back to the Source.

Be who you really are.

Shine your light, share your love

And change the world.

You have already done so much!

You Can Do It

There is nothing stopping you

You have all that you need

To rise and soar to great heights

Dear One, it is only your human mind that keeps you from soaring higher than you ever have before. This is your only limiting factor, for you are a part of greatness. You are a part of the Source and it is time for you to accept this truth about yourself. For if you are reading this, you have work to do to help move this planet forward. You CAN do it. And it begins with your own life.

Do you understand that everything is connected, that you are part of a continuum that stretches out into infinity. It matters not where you sit on that continuum, only that you are a part of it. For this gives you access to the knowledge, the help that you need in order to move forward on your path. You are not alone. You have never been alone. That is impossible.

For those of you who are more sensitive, you may feel the ebb and flow of the energies as they are recalibrating here upon this plane. And they ARE recalibrating. If you find yourself feeling unsettled, ask for help and guidance as to the best way for you to move forward. For everyone has their own journey and it is different for each and every one of you, even though you are all on the same path back to the Source.

You must realize that the heavens are rejoicing at this moment for how far you have come; for how far this world has come. Enough of you have awakened and shaken the sleep from your eyes to allow these current changes to occur. And although they might seem as if they are going in the opposite direction, know that it is only an illusion. This world of yours is moving forward in spite of certain dark forces that seem to be gaining control. They are not and it is because so many of you have opened your hearts to the love that surrounds you. The best way for you to help is to share that love with your world every day.

Banish fear from your life for it does not serve you and you have enough light within to counteract any negative thoughts. You have such power, such strength, such courage, yet untapped, for you are only now awakening to your own potential. We have seen this all along and rejoice in the budding realization of so many of you as to who you really are. Dear one, you are capable of such greatness. You are in partnership with the Source and all of which that is. And it was your choice to be here upon this physical plane to stand witness to this transformation.  You may not yet see it, but Dear one, it is beginning and the end result will be more magnificent that you could ever imagine.

Do not give up, Dear one. The process has begun and you are an integral part. You have loving support throughout your day, just ask for our help and we shall gladly be there for you. Remember that we hold each and every one of you in gratitude for choosing to be here at this wondrous time; for choosing to be a part of this glorious transformation. Indeed you are strong enough, courageous enough, worthy enough. See yourself as we see you….a light shining brightly with the strength and power to move mountains.

You, Dear one, are a part of the Oneness. You, Dear one, make a difference with your presence here every day. You, Dear one, are an integral part of this transformation.

Accept this truth.

Accept your gifts.

Accept our love and our help.

You are deserving, you are held in gratitude.

Dear One With All of Thee.



There is change in the air
Not only physical but ethereal
Fear not this change, but embrace it

Dear One, the change coming to this physical plane is now accelerating and you may begin to feel a difference within yet not know what it is. Be not afraid of what you are feeling or experiencing, for you are safe and protected and a part of this wondrous event.

There is now a critical mass of people who have been awakened in order for this change to take place. And the more who become awakened, the faster the acceleration will become. You are a part of this change and have helped it to come into being. By reading these writings on a regular basis, you yourself have begun to change, perhaps imperceptibly to yourself and others, but indeed you have begun to change. And this change is necessary for the universe to expand and grow as it is meant to do.

Just as you see the changes here upon the Mother with the different seasons, so that also occurs across the universal expanse. Nothing remains static, but everything, even if it goes unnoticed by many, everything changes. That is a part of growth. That is a part of existence. That is the natural order of things. And so, if you can accept the changes that come annually upon your planet, then you should be able to accept the changes that are occurring on a much larger scale across the entire existence of being.

What can you do to help this change take place smoothly? Be at one with all that is. Understand that you are never alone, but a part of a vast continuum of being that goes on into infinity. Send loving thoughts out to everyone and everything around you. For all things that you see, ALL THINGS, are made of love and can react to your positive or negative vibrations. For all are connected. You are connected to that rock, to that tree, to that person on the other side of the world whom you do not even know. You are connected and it is through this connection that the changes are enhanced. Be not afraid. Do not doubt the power, the ability that you have to make a positive difference in this world and beyond.

Focus not on the perceived lack of love around you. Instead send out loving thoughts to all.
Give no additional energy or recognition to fearful acts or thoughts within or around you. Instead wrap any and all of them in love and send them on their way.
Do not add to the worry, the destruction of any forward movement. Instead act with pure intent.

You can make a difference. You have already made a difference. You are a powerful being who has not yet accepted the gifts laid out before you. You are connected to the Source, the ever powerful Source. You are a part of this. Do not quiver in fear with feelings of unworthiness. For you are love incarnate and when you share that love, even for a moment, ripples of change spread out around you into infinity.

Be at peace with who you are. Travel with like-minded people who can teach and inspire you to allow your greatness to unfold. Do not doubt your strength, your resilience, your power of love. For it is there. It has always been there and you will soon be called on to use it for the highest good. You can make a difference. You do make a difference. Every day with every breath you take.

Be at One.
Be at peace.
Rise up to your full stature and love with abandon.
It is time for change.

You are Not Alone

You are surrounded by love

You are supported by love

You are made of love

Dear One, the true nature of your being is love.  Many of you cannot accept this about yourself.  You feel unworthy. You feel alone. You feel you need to be perfect in order to accept this concept.  But this truth is being revealed to you for it is time to see yourself as you really are.  It is time to look past the wounds you carry; for they are stepping stones on your journey to self-awareness. These wounds allow you to help others who walk behind you, who need a helping hand to move forward.

There is a light shining brightly within you that is becoming brighter every day.  It is our goal to gently move you forward as you read these messages; to begin to chip away at that wall of self-judgment you have slowly built up around you.  Can you for just a moment allow it to crack open and allow the light to shine through?  You were not meant to be so harsh upon yourself, seeing your experiential lessons as failures rather than gifts.  Do you not yet understand that every move you make, every moment in your life is a forward movement, back to the Source of which you are a part?

If you were so worthless, why would you be surrounded by such loving beings eager to help you on your journey?  If you were so imperfect, why would you be given so much power and knowledge to use in your daily life?  You do not yet understand the power and knowledge available to you.  Know that you have grown enough, you are strong enough to be trusted with these gifts.  They have been available to you all along, yet the proper time was needed for you to be encouraged to use them.  And that time is now.

You, Dear One, are needed to move things forward, not only in your own life, but in the expansion of the entire Universe. You have already, unbeknownst to you; made significant changes to the outcome of this planet you call Earth.  And despite what you think, those changes are positive.  Yes, Mother Earth will shudder as she continues to grow, and that will affect many of her charges.  But the final outcome is positive.

Dear One, there are many possibilities in your own life, not yet taken by you.  Open yourself up to the limitless opportunities available to you. As you plan your day, do not limit what is possible with your humble expectations.  For in your human state, you have no concept of the infinite possibilities.  Instead, walk forward in faith, with no expectations, acting with pure intent.  Know that you are surrounded by a cushion of love that will support you if you stumble.  Give gratitude for all that you have, even if it is not yet in your possession.  And wrap all worries that you have in love.  Wrap them in love and see how that changes your world.  You have the power to do that, to diminish the charge on your worries and deem them impotent.

Live in the moment, a moment extraordinary in itself; surrounded by love, filled with love, shining brightly with love.  You may not yet be able to see it.  But we see it in you.  It has always been there, Dear One.  Seize your greatness and help to change the world.  You are on your way. That is why you chose to be here at this time.

Love yourself.

Love unconditionally all those around you.

Love others because you can, because that is all there is.

And allow your light to shine.


Do you see things as they really are?
Or does your perception alter your view?
Do you have the courage to see things clearly?

Dear One, what you see, hear, feel during your day is filtered through your past, your judgment, your hopes and fears. Often you see only what you want to see, what you wish to see, rather than what is really there. Often, because of self-judgment, you do not see the beauty, you do not hear the gratitude because you feel unworthy. It is time for you to take a breath and see things as they really are.

There is beauty all around you that you do not allow yourself to see. There are joyful moments that you do not give yourself time to experience. And there is truth spoken to you that you cannot hear. All of these things happen to you every day. And you walk through your life perceiving things that are not true because of your own self-doubt and fear.

To begin to see clearly, to begin to see things as they really are takes courage. It begins with knowing, truly understanding , how loved you are by the Oneness; how many gifts you have been given which as yet remain unopened. To begin, you must realize that you are a part of the Divine. Do not humble yourself and say you are unworthy. For there is fear in this way of thinking. Fear of accepting your greatness.

The world is changing and now is the time for you to venture into unknown waters. Do not worry, for you have a cushion of love surrounding you that will not allow you to sink underneath the surface. You, Dear One, are capable of much more than you ever imagined. And the world needs you at this time. There are enough of you, a critical mass has been reached, to begin the healing of the Mother. And the more of you who step forward, the more accelerated the healing will be.

But first, Dear One, accept the gift of your own divinity. And have the courage to see things as they truly are. If you are unsure, ask for help in having clarity of sight, of hearing, of guidance of how to move forward. We believe in you and it is time for you to start believing in yourself. Remember that you are a part of the whole. And what a glorious whole that is! You are a drop of water in a sea of greatness. And your contribution is very important. Do not believe otherwise.

Your clarity begins with yourself and who you really are. And once you can accept this, then you can look at others, see them also as divine beings exploring a physical existence. Yes, there are stones in the path of all which may cause temporary stumbling. But judge not yourself or others. Embrace your lives and the exploration of new experiences. You are tethered to the Source, always. And so, you will never be lost.

Be at peace, Dear One. And see, truly see, what surrounds you. And if it is negative, bless it and walk away. If it is positive, then embrace it and add your light to it. Always, as you walk your path, shine love on all you meet. For the truth is that the love within you is endless. It cannot be depleted. Accept your greatness. Accept your gifts. Accept your connection to Source.

For you are, One With All of Thee.

One With All

You are never alone
You have never been alone
That is impossible.

Dear One, the truth is that you are a part of a continuum that stretches to infinity. Your connection is with all things. All things; animal, mineral, plant, spirit. Being in your current state within a human body creates the illusion of separateness. But that is only an illusion. You are One With All.

This means that your every thought, action, word is heard across the continuum and has an effect on the entire universal being. Be not judgmental against yourself for your actions that were not of pure intent. For this earthly plane is a learning ground. And there are checks and balances set up to help disperse the negativity that has come forth from this plane. But we want you to understand that any prayer, any call for help is always heard and acknowledged. You are not alone on this journey and your calls for help will be answered, though not always in the way you might imagine.

Dear One, the time is now to begin a new practice in your life. Do not limit the possibilities in your calls for help. Do not be so specific that you do not allow for possible solutions that you never even imagined. For what you can do is broader, more powerful, greater than you have allowed yourself to believe.

Choose your words more carefully with a more positive tone. Speak of what you can and will do rather than what you cannot or will not do. The universe rotates in a positive direction and so the statements that begin with, “I will not do…….” are not as powerful as the statements that begin with, “I will do….” This is just a habit that you have formed over the years and can be easily changed. What you do not yet understand is the power in making that minor adjustment to your words.

Dear One, know that where you are at this very moment is exactly where you should be; where you are needed at exactly this time. As we have said before, the web of connection is so vast, you may never understand why you are in this exact place at this exact time. But have the faith that it is where you are to be. The interactions that you have are meant to be at that precise moment in time. The control that you have is in the tone of the interactions, be they positive or negative. That is your choice and part of your journey.

Remember that there is no time in reality. What this means is that prior to a future interaction, you can begin to change the energetic vibration of that interaction by setting the tone in your mind, in your body, in your own vibration. You have the power to do this. By doing so, you are preparing yourself and the situation in a positive way that will help to create a more positive interaction. The power is yours, Dear One. The power has always been yours. For you are a divine being, created from the Divine as you now co-create with the Divine around you. Do not feel unworthy of this state of being. For this is who you truly are.

Love surrounds you, envelopes you, fills your entire being. It is all that is. And so, allow that love to emanate from every pore of your physical body. Allow the light of it to shine. For this is who you truly are. And if you find yourself slipping back into the illusion of lack of love in your life, then allow it to pour into you from all around you. And feel the light lift you up and put you back, once again, on your feet.

Free yourself of the illusion of separateness.
Understand that the streaming you do as your body sleeps also continues during the time when it is awake. It is just that the mind gets in the way and does not always allow the process to unfold.

Be at peace, Dear One, with who you are.
For you ARE One With All of Thee.


What is love?
Do you really understand what it is?
Can you change your perception of it?

Dear One, do you really know what love is? You use this term in such a limited fashion. It is time you begin to realize what this truly is? In truth, the word you use cannot begin to describe the all-encompassing aspects of love.

Consider this. You are made of love. Only love. The entirety of the Universe is made of love, only love. It is not an emotion to be felt, to be given and reclaimed. It is a part of your make-up. It is impossible to withdraw your love from another. It is impossible not to love another. For this is how the Universe works. Your definition of love here upon this plane so limits it. Love is within your every atom, your every breath, your every moment of being. It is all that is.

Here upon this plane you talk of love as a commodity. Something to be traded, something to be turned on and off. But that is not possible. For love, true love, is always present. It is there in every interaction that you have with another. It is there within every fiber of your being. What you call love does not even begin to describe the depth of it, the omnipresence of it across the waves of being.

We will try to explain this further at another time. But for now, right now, begin to consider that love encompasses you. It is present in every interaction, in every particle of being here upon this plane. It fills the space between your photons and electrons, it vibrates in the air around you, it flows within your veins, with every breath that you take.

Do not deny this existence of love. For in order to grow, to evolve into the divine one you already are but cannot yet accept, you must begin to view your life, your world a different way. There is no lack of love here within your world. There is only a lack of perception, in the ability to see it all around you.

This is your true nature. This is who you are. Consider this and as you lay your head upon your pillow this eve, ask for clarity about this. Begin to quietly ask for clarity in the stillness of your life. We hear you as you whisper. We hear you. Allow us to teach you and call on us for clarity. We cannot interfere. But we can begin to show you the way. It is your choice to take the first step. And when you do, the heavens will erupt in joyous celebration. For your awakening to the wondrous existence of which you are a part has just begun.

You are One With All of Thee.
Living, breathing, embraced in love.
For love is all there is.
