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.

Why Not Say Yes?

Angel Oak Tree by Dustin K. Ryan
www.fineartamerica.com

Say yes to the many possibilities

In your life.

Say yes to accepting joy

In your life.

Say yes to believing

In yourself.

Dear One, can you say yes to all that life sends your way? Can you see the gift in all that crosses your path? Can you say yes to the truth that you are capable, worthy and ready to take the next step forward?

There are two components to your life, the physical and the spiritual. The spiritual component is that which guides you forward into the next lesson, the next experience. The physical is what reacts to the experience. It can accept it with love or approach it with fear and disdain.

You can experience and focus on the discomfort of the situation. Or you can approach it with acceptance that it is impermanent and also an opportunity to grow. You can bemoan the fact that this experience is not pleasant. Or you can see it as another step forward on your path, a gift to all concerned. The choice is yours.

Reacting is a physical behavior. It is driven by human emotion and often is done without forethought. Responding is the result of pausing and reflecting upon what has just occurred. In responding you are bringing in the spiritual component of your life. What just happened? Why, and how best do I respond to this?

Any discomfort you feel is temporary. And in tangent with that concept, any joy you feel may also be temporary. It all depends on how you see the current situation of your life. If it causes you despair, can you reflect upon it, seek help if needed, and honestly ask yourself what opportunities for change are present. If your current life situation brings you joy, then offer gratitude for the lightness of being which surrounds you.

Remember that this physical life is one of duality. Both highs and lows will be experienced for both light and dark inhabit this plane of existence. This is why it is such a wondrous learning ground for souls who incarnated in order to experience self-discovery. No learning results from a perfect, carefree existence. The lesson is in how you react or respond to the ups and downs of your life.

It may bring you comfort to understand the impermanence of all things on this physical plane. And it may help you to understand that the choice is always yours on what comes next. For there is opportunity for change with every breath that you take.

There are as many paths for you to take as branches on a tree. Each one spreading from the core, the trunk. And each one reaching towards the light. You are like that tree, solid in your core, but able to sway in the currents of life as you reach outward and upward. If the branch you are currently traveling breaks off, then another one resumes the journey forward.

Dear One, there are always opportunities presented to you. And each opportunity provides a different part of the lesson you came here to learn. Embrace your life and know that you have the strength, the help to move forward in love.

If you need to pause and reflect, do so. Your strength and power will once again surge through your veins. Know that there is the possibility of joy underneath every leaf on your journey. And remember that you are firmly attached to the strength of the Mother, the power of the All. Nothing can change that.

You are One with All.

You have the opportunity to change.

Each moment of your life

Provides the opportunity for growth.

And when the new blossoms appear

You will shine with more light

Than ever before.

You are a magnificent being.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Joy

fr.mochifa.com

It awaits you

Every moment of your day.

Can you allow it in?

Can you change your perception

And see it everywhere?

It exists and waits

To envelope you.

Dear One, there is such joy surrounding you at all times of your day. But it is your perception of your world which clouds your vision. Can you begin to push through the fog created by your mind and feel, accept the joy that is yours?

It begins with you and how you view your world. Any loss which you feel can be seen another way. A loved one has discovered freedom from this physical world and any pain which accompanied them on this journey. You are no longer limited by physical boundaries and can be together in a more natural way, in an energetic way, at any time of the day.

A lesson learned may have been momentarily painful, but the benefits received shall open up wondrous possibilities in the days to come. By experiencing this lesson, you have grown. You have taken a step forward upon your path. Rather than self-recrimination, there can be celebration and gratitude.

A disappointing outcome tells you that was the wrong path to take. You will be gently guided forward towards the more appropriate direction to take. The timing may not have been the best for you to reap the most benefits from your next step forward. Remember that all are connected and often a piece of the matrix has not yet been awakened to create the most perfect outcome for you.

Patience, forgiveness, acceptance and gratitude are all traits to be nurtured. By doing this, you will open up the possibilities for more joy to flow through your veins. There is a lesson in every encounter which you have.

It may be a piece of information given to you which was needed for your next step. It may be an awareness that your response was a habitual response and not appropriate for that encounter. It may be a sudden realization that the other person is not as you originally perceived them. This may allow you to show more compassion or to retrieve the power you had given them in the past.

Understand that life is here for you to grow, to learn and to begin to accept your own divinity. Your wings are beginning to sprout. Allow them to emerge over time and enfold you in their strength and their light.

You, Dear One, have come so far. Celebrate how far you have come. Celebrate your strength and resolve for arising from your bed and just being present at times you wished to do otherwise. Celebrate the opportunities you had the courage to take. Give gratitude for the guidance, the compassion and the love directed towards you throughout your day.

There is so much to celebrate. The joy is there clouded by your feelings of inadequacy or malcontent. Can you step forward and dissolve those clouds? Can you trust that your life is given to you as a gift, wrapped in love and anticipation of how you will use it in the coming days?

The choice is yours, Dear One. We reach out to you in love, eager to guide you forward in your journey home. Can you begin to see the synchronicities which are the trail markers for the path to take? Can you accept that you have the power to see life as a gift or as a burden?

You have so much to offer to the All on this journey of yours. And each step you take is not taken alone. Call upon us when you feel the loneliness or despair. Close your eyes and feel the loving embrace extended to you at these times.

Consider, if you can, that the world around you is filled with love. Every atom of vibration is set into motion with love. You are an integral part of this. You are connected to a vast matrix of possibilities.

Take a chance.

Discard the fear

And replace it with faith.

Faith in yourself and in the Universal Being.

Accept the joy of life.

Accept the joy of you.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Trust in Yourself

nightbird-1.tumblr.com

Why do you not believe in yourself?

In the possibilities

In the gifts given to you

In the perfect timing

In how your life unfolds?

Begin to trust

And see how your life changes.

Dear One, you are a magnificent being with incredible potential to change your world. And yet you focus only on your perceived flaws. Can you begin to accept your true nature with a neutral state of mind, accepting your strengths, your gifts, and begin to change your world.

Each and every one of you has been ‘designed’ to contribute something unique to this physical world. You move through this matrix of life encountering others or situations which are stations provided for you to make your mark, often in the simplest of ways.

What you have yet to realize is how a small gesture on your part can begin a series of events which blossoms into a momentous change as it moves down the matrix. Everything you do has an effect upon your world. Which is why love and compassion are encouraged at all stages of your life.

And often this love and compassion must be directed towards yourself. This notion that exists in your mind that you are flawed, imperfect or unimportant can only be erased by you. And since it often requires the help of others to remove this way of thinking, you are constantly provided with avenues to receive this help in the most unlikely of interactions.

Dear One, can you begin to accept your divine nature? Can you begin to realize that your greatest of perceived flaws may be your most wondrous gift to share with the world? Your strength lies in your uniqueness. You are different from any other upon this plane. And at the same time, you are the same.

As you continue to awaken, you will begin to have a better understanding of the complexities of how all of creation is connected. The human mind can only grasp so much, for it exists only in a physical world, accustomed to the 4th dimension. And yet, your heart knows and understands much more, as it moves across dimensions, outward in a manner which will not yet be revealed to you.

Can you move through your day, your world with trust and faith? Human nature is comfortable with a world that is neat and tidy, lacking the raw edges deemed unnecessary in this train of thought. And yet, it is in these raw edges where the changes are born.

Remember that in this current state of existence, you are unable to see the larger picture. You may try to uncover the reasons for the actions of another because you need an ordered way of life; everything must fit into a certain box or category.

The problem with this approach is that the human mind limits the possibilities of existence. It cannot begin to fathom the infinite possibilities in any situation. Which means that your tidy explanation of a certain event does not see the depth, the expansion, the true impetus of its occurrence.

If you can begin to nourish the belief that your need to understand is not always necessary. If you can begin to live your life with faith and trust in yourself and in the perfection of the unfolding of your day. If you can choose love and compassion for every event or interaction. How would that change your world?

Dear One, give gratitude for all that occurs in your life. Ask for help daily in moving through your world with love and compassion. Allow the raw edges of life to gently guide you forward. For it is only in expanding your reach beyond that ‘comfort zone’ that you will grow and experience your greatest of lessons.

It is time for you to begin to see the divinity, the perfection, in all parts of your life. As you nurture this way of seeing, your priorities of what is truly important to you will change.

Stretch, grow and expand

Your consciousness and your way of life.

You are ready

And you have our support and guidance

Every moment of your day.

You are wondrous

You are awakening

And we celebrate

Every forward step you take

Back towards your own divine nature.

Dear, Dear One With All of Thee.

You Are Healed

Great Blue Heron
by Giles Desjardins

The healing

 Has already occurred

It is the acceptance

Of this miracle

Which remains.

Dear One, your healing has already occurred for your physical, mental, emotional bodies. What remains for you to do is to accept this healing as truth and reality. Healing is different from cure. But lessons abound if you are willing to see and accept them.

This journey of yours is filled with lessons for you and for others. Remember than your presence here upon this physical plane is due to your eagerness for self-realization. And this requires challenges and situations which can bring insight and healing, if you are willing to accept these gifts.

Dear One, this journey of yours is a wondrous one and you are surrounded by those who hold you in love through every step of this process. You are the adventurous one at the forefront, allowing these experiences for the growth of the collective consciousness. And you are held in much gratitude for what you have chosen to undergo as you move forward upon your individual paths.

There is no failure on this forward journey. That is only in your mind, your Ego, expecting outcomes that are limited and very narrow in scope. Remember that you are a part of an intricate matrix of consciousness which encompasses all of creation. Consider this as you review your life and your perceived failures.

Understand that you are just one part of an intricate dance among all with whom you interact and beyond. What you may have perceived as failure was just your part to be played in the healing of another. And those who have provided intense challenges for you have laid down the foundation for another lesson to be learned. An AHA! moment in the making.

The healing has already occurred. It may still be in your astral body requiring your acceptance to allow it to move down into your physical body. The outcome may not be what you consider a ‘cure’, but the healing has occurred. Can you accept the complexities of this process? And can you allow the simplicity of the process? So be it, so it is.

Dear One, as you continue to awaken, offer gratitude for all which occurs to you on this spiritual journey you have undertaken. You have been touched by so many and in return have touched more than you realize in your daily growth.

All is not how you perceive it if you view only from your human mind. No one is simple and yet everyone is so. Your personalities are very complex and connected in a way you have yet to understand. And yet, your true nature can be described in one word. LOVE.

If you can begin to contemplate this truth, you will be better able to accept the truth that your healing has already occurred. If you can consider that the Source of all creation and therefore, All of creation is love, your heart will open to infinite possibilities.

Your mind is a tool to move through this physical world. It is necessary for navigation and survival. However, your heart is where your true nature exists and we remind you once again that you are a spiritual, divine being temporarily housed in a physical world.

The awakening has begun. Embrace what comes your way with the knowledge that failure is not possible. Love others despite and because of the challenges they lay in your path. For they are your teachers, as you are theirs. Connected in spirit and in purpose. To help the collective consciousness, the All That Is on this experiential journey.

Oh, Dear One, allow yourself to feel the loving embrace which holds you now and always.

You are healed.

You are love incarnate.

You are

One With All of Thee.

The Ascension

Rise up

To your greatest potential.

Leave behind all fear

And uncertainty.

For you are divine

And capable of miracles.

Dear One, you have lived long enough under the illusion that you are a physical being, limited in your potential for greatness and change. The connection you have with the All That Is urges you to move forward with grace and love. This is your time for change.

Can you move forward with faith, leaving behind any trepidation or fear that you are not worthy, not ready, not good enough. Dear One, you are a divine being and capable of so much more than you realize. And help surrounds you as you take those first hesitant steps forward into great change and infinite possibilities.

How do you make this shift in how you see yourself and your world? The shift has already occurred for many of you. Conscious awareness may not have occurred yet. But consider how you see your world. Consider how you feel as you move through your day. And notice if prior habits no longer provide the satisfaction they once did.

You are changing, Dear One, at a rate that is perfect for you. All that occurs for you, to you, occurs in a manner in which you can readily accept. In fact, some of these changes are so subtle that it may take awhile for you to even notice a different awareness about your life.

The energies here upon this plane are changing, vibrating at a higher frequency, which is one of the reasons there is so much chaos in your present world. On some level, many feel the change but do not know how to integrate it into their own lives.

This is where you are able to help. If you are reading these words you are already aware of the shift that is occurring. And you can help by sending out loving energy into the world. You may have already noticed how it is easier to come from your heart. Understanding the intricacies of this world may not seem as important as moving through it with love.

Your role is to help others move forward with grace. Your mere presence is neutralizing the fear which many are feeling at this time of change. Do not underestimate the power of your silent presence. For as you continue to open more to your own divinity, your connection with the All That Is will strengthen.

Words may not be needed to help another. Being a sounding board, allowing them a safe venue for expressing their fears, their hopes, the unusual things that are occurring to them, may be all that is required. And if there is guidance for you to share, have faith that your strengthened connection will provide the most perfect words in which to give this guidance.

In order to help others, your own faith and trust in yourself and in the Oneness must become stronger. For you are the conduit for change. Each of you is placed in the most perfect situation to do your best work. And for some, that may be only to listen and be present.

Encourage others to trust the process that is occurring. They will see a change in you and wonder how you can walk with such peace of mind in such chaotic times.

Seek out others who are at the level of growth similar to your own. Combining your energies is much more powerful when done with intention. Allowing yourself the gift of having another to share the changes occurring in your own life will help to keep you on your path.

For now that you have begun this process, there is no turning back. The only movement is forward and you can do it with more grace than you ever imagined. Forgive yourself and others for past indiscretions. And realize that those indiscretions have brought you to where you are today, in this moment of loving embrace.

You are perfect in every way, for you are a divine being. Neither better or worse than anyone else. But connected to all who cross your path and beyond. Oh, Dear One, the heavens are astir with excitement at the progress you have made to reach this point.

Honor yourself

And how far you have come.

Anticipate with faith

How much further you can go

Walking in love and grace.

You, Dear One, are just beginning

A wondrous journey forward

And we are beside you

Every step of the way.

Dear One With All of Thee.
