Timing

Salvador Dalí. The Persistence of Memory. 

Release control of your perception of time

For it only holds you back

Rather than moving your forward.

Embrace synchronicity instead

And your connection to all things.

Dear One, as you continue to believe in the progression of time and try to control what is to occur, when and how, you only limit yourself and the infinite possibilities. Instead can you allow your life to unfold in the manner that best serves you and the lessons you came here to learn.

Indeed, you can have aspirations and dreams and we encourage you to do so. But do not attempt to control what happens and when it happens.  Dream your dream, manifest it by experiencing how it would be with all of your physical senses. How would it taste, smell, sound, look and feel? Spend a moment experiencing it with all of your senses. Then send it off into the ethers with gratitude for what it will bring you when it arrives.

Then continue to live your life, allowing synchronicity and the web of connection to move you towards this dream of yours. It is not about control. It is about trust and faith. Trust that all is well with you and that your life is unfolding exactly as it should. Faith in yourself and in your intuition, which will help guide you forward. Both of these come from your heart, not from your mind.

Imagine the web of connection and how there is a string of energy connecting you to all things in this world and beyond. What you do, think, or say affects all of creation as the energetic impulses created by you move down these strings of connection. In the same way, energetic pulses come towards you from all of your surroundings, not only from those in a human body.

If there is discord in one area, calming corrective energies can and are sent to the affected area. And this is done with Divine timing. For understand, that there are lessons to be learned by all involved, be you a sender or a recipient. The ebb and flow of energies is perfectly timed, if you trust, if you allow and if you cease your attempts to control the outcome.

Rather than fight so hard to have an event occur exactly as you desire it to occur, can you instead, release control and just allow. You have placed your order from the menu. Now allow it to manifest in the most perfect way.

The energies are changing here upon this plane, affected by celestial occurrences as well as by human interactions. In order to better understand this concept, you will need to think more globally and universally, rather than seeing just your immediate surroundings. As you begin to expand your thinking, you will begin to have a better sense of the energetic dance with occurs across all of creation.

There is a flow, a rhythm to this dance that affects you all. There is so much occurring in the unseen world around you and it begins with the connection you have with all things. Can you bless your connection and give gratitude for the abundance of loving energy which surrounds you?

You are not alone on this journey, you are not alone in this life you live. Quite the opposite, you are one with all. If you can begin to accept this concept, you may be better able to understand how Divine timing includes events across all of creation. This is where synchronicity comes into play. This is why trusting your intuition will help you learn the dance of existence across all realms.

All of creation exists within and around you, for you are but a piece of a Divine mosaic moving in rhythm with the universal song of creation. You have an important part to play in this symphony of love. Never doubt that. You have come with a unique gift to offer as you learn the dance of love.

Dear One, there is no need for control, just for trust. Would your life not be much easier if you accepted your integral part in the ebb and flow of creation, with no need to rush or to control.

Release and let go of control

Embrace your connection with all of infinity.

And dance in rhythm with the universal song.

Allow your life to unfold in its most perfect way.

With Divine timing

 And the love of the Universe surrounding you.

Dear One With All of Thee.

This Moment in Time

this moment in time

Chakra Heart Primalpainter.com

How do you feel at this very moment?

Are you happy, sad, neutral?

Can you give attention to what you are feeling

At this very moment in time?

Can you bless that feeling with the knowledge

That it will soon change

To another emotion, another feeling,

As you move through this day.

Dear One, there is a duality here upon this plane, purposefully designed to give you the optimal environment for growth. The human body is filled with emotion, some described as positive while other emotions are deemed negative. But do they all not have the same purpose in your life; to move you forward on your path?

Even the greatest teachers of your time have felt a plethora of emotion, ranging from ecstasy to despair. Your life is a kaleidoscope of emotions, each with a different frequency of vibration. And indeed, if you could see the colors emitted you would see a rainbow of colors swirling around you. For some of these emotions bring with them a chaotic energy which can cause you to be out of balance.

What to do? Accept what it is that you are feeling. Pause and take note of it and allow it to work through your body. Breathe as calmly as you are able and ask it why it is here with you at this moment in time. Give gratitude for the message that it brings to you, for it does have a purpose for being present at this time.

If it is an emotion that has been suppressed for a long time, perhaps now is the time to move forward and allow it to emerge, providing the release needed for you to continue on your path. You have grown since the event that caused that emotion and may now have the strength to review and release what has been buried for so long.

If it has been a constant companion for you, perhaps it is now time to seek help. Time to allow yourself to heal, physically or emotionally, for your entire being is affected by the vibration caused by what you are feeling.

If there is celebration to be experienced, then do so with full abandon and honor the lightness that surrounds you. Share it with others and give gratitude for the joy you feel at this moment.

Dear One, rather than trying to suppress any emotion, instead sit with it and try to see what it is telling you. It may be as simple as the need to feed your physical body. It may be telling you that it is time to get involved to help change the world, in any way you can help. Or it may be telling you that your body needs rest. You have done enough for this day.

Your intuition will help you as you move through these different states of mind. But in order for it to do so, it is necessary for you to acknowledge how it is that you are feeling. If you are sensitive to the energies of others around you, find a quiet space to replenish and ground yourself. Mother Nature will gladly show you relief. You are loved, Dear One, and have an abundance of help waiting for you to ask for assistance.

Emotions are a driving force to help you move forward on your path. Honor them for how they can teach you. Life here upon this plane can easily encourage you to over-commit, to ignore what your intuition is trying to tell you or to just push back that what is trying to help you move forward.

This moment is time is different from the previous moment and from the next moment to occur. For there is always the potential for change, acceptance, forgiveness and gratitude. Every one who is embodied at this time has struggled with raw emotion. And for those who are sensitive, you feel the emotions of others as well as your own.

Acknowledge and respond to what you are feeling. What is needed may be as simple as taking a breath and walking in nature. Or it may require taking action over a longer time period, for yourself or for others.

There is purpose in what you feel

It is a gift for you

To better understand yourself

And where you are on your path.

Have enough compassion for yourself,

To listen to what you are being told.

And always know that there is help

Just a breath away.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Out with the Old

pruning feb 2018

It’s that time of year when many of us go through our closets in order to weed out all the things we no longer use. Clearing the air, making room for new things, perhaps just allowing ourselves to feel lighter and less burdened. After all, spring is around the corner and with it comes new growth and the promise of lighter days and endless possibilities.

This is the time of year that I am heavy into pruning my blueberry bushes. I started the last week of January and will be out there at least till mid-March trying to get rid of the old canes. It’s not that difficult a concept to prune. Get rid of the canes that are too tall or too close to the ground. The pickers can’t reach the blueberries on the tall canes and blueberries growing too close to the ground will affect weed control. But most of all, the canes should not overlap causing damage as they rub each other. They also need room in the center of the bush for air to circulate. They need to breath just like us.

People ask me how do I know when I’ve pruned enough. My standard reply is ‘When I hear the bushes say Ah!’ I know it sounds crazy, but I noticed it when I took a blueberry pruning class. After the instructor showed us how to prune, I could feel those bushes sigh with the new freedom of movement. I asked a few of the other students if they could feel the difference in the bushes and they just looked at me like I was crazy. What can I say? This is how I move through life, feeling empathy not only towards people but also towards other sentient beings. Because I do believe my blueberry bushes can feel.

When friends come to visit, they tell me that the bushes greet them as they come up the driveway. My response is, ‘Of course they do, they have had good home training’. And when I need a hug, I just walk out into that blueberry patch and always feel so much better.

It’s like a time warp in there. You get lost and think you’ve been out there for just an hour and realize its been at least three hours. It’s addicting. Even when we pick, it’s difficult to come in because you just have to get that one last ripe berry, or those few ripe berries over there. I have to tell my pickers that they are now ‘off the clock’ to get them to come in some mornings.

This is hard work. It’s time consuming and tiring and this time of year I usually spend my evenings on the couch with a heating pad on my back. But at the same time, it is a joy for me. Being out there helps me clear my head. I’ve been struggling lately with all that I have on my plate and how to prioritize; questioning if I have made the right decisions or if I need to make some changes. I’ve been stalling on doing some things I feel I need to do and have been feeling guilty about it.

My main goal right now is to prune as many bushes as I can before the sap begins to flow. Yet, I’ve realized that pruning is helping me to work through my stuff. I’m helping those bushes by clearing out the old canes and they are helping me by providing me a nurturing space to figure out my life. It’s the connection, the back and forth, something I’ve written about often in this blog.

I cannot tell you how lucky I feel to be a blueberry farmer. I tend those bushes with love and all my clients rave about how good the berries taste. My friends tell me that I am not only spreading love in my writing, but also through the blueberries, and I can see the truth in that.

All aspects of our lives are connected in some way. And I know that if I move through these other parts of my life one step at a time, as I do when I prune the bushes, then I’ll be okay. If I can move through the other parts of my life with the same tenderness I feel for those bushes, then I’m in balance.

I never know what each season will bring. Drought or a late frost could affect the yield and I just have to trust that all will be well. Because I can’t control the weather. I can only send loving energy and gratitude to those bushes for coming back to me every year. I tell them often, no matter what the yield is, I will always love them and be grateful for what they have given me. And they haven’t let me down yet.

The blueberries are teaching me to approach the other aspects of my life as I approach farming. The truth is that there is only so much I can control and sometimes I just have to trust my intuition and wait. Wait until I feel the time is right, rather than judging myself for not doing enough or for not doing it sooner. Life has a flow. It has a season, just like in nature. And sometimes we just have to allow it to bloom in its own time.  Thank you, my dear blueberry bushes, for sharing your wisdom with me once again.

Emergence

emergence

Slowly the layers begin to peel away

Revealing the shining light within

Like a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis

Beauty is revealed.

Dear One, as you continue your path, you will begin the rebirth of your true nature. Fear not, for this event is not a sudden transformation. It is but a gentle transition from one who lives in fear to one who lives in love. And the world in all of its entirety begins to change around you as this process spreads across borders, across continents. Imagine a world awakening to love.

This is possible. It is already occurring. Quietly but steadily as more and more of you realize the failure of your old ways of thinking. ‘There must be something else’, you claim. And yes, there is the way of love and acceptance. It begins with an opening of your heart center to others and to your world.

Within each and every one of you is a radiant light, too magnificent to be detected by your physical eyes. For it vibrates at a higher frequency than can be seen by the physical body. It can be seen, however, in a meditative state as you raise your vibration through your breathing to connect with the unseen world.

By now, you must accept that there is much of the unseen world which surrounds you and affects you, even though your physical senses may not be able to detect it. Your intuition will tell you when much of these unseen events are occurring, be it a visitation from a loved one from the other side, or a feeling of love seemingly coming from nowhere.

You, Dear One, have the ability to be much more perceptive than you currently are, if you begin to view your life through the lens of love. Fear so clouds your judgment, your perception and encourages you to run around in a frenzy like a squirrel on the road in front of you. You have seen these creatures as you drive, scurrying here and there, trying to decide which side of the road would be the safest destination.

You are like this also, Dear One. First here, then there, unable to move calmly through your day, pulled in so many directions, you feel scattered and exhausted. What can you do to change this approach to your day?

First you breathe, feel your connection with the Mother by grounding yourself through the souls of your feet. You have been told this many times. If outside, remove your shoes and feel the gentle strength of the Mother who provides you a solid platform upon which to stand.

Then open your heart to the love of the Universe. If you are traveling to a destination, tell yourself that you are on your way and the timing will be perfect. If you are making a decision, give thanks for the guidance you are receiving and move forward with what your heart tells you to do. How many times have you chosen not to listen to your inner guidance, your gut feeling, and later had confirmation that following your intuition would have made for an easier path?

When you are having a difficult interaction with someone, send them love from your heart and see how the situation changes. If you are filled with emotion, allow yourself to calm down, before you speak or act or decide the next step to take. For intense emotion clouds your connection to your inner guidance.

Dear One, practice mindful movement throughout your day. Feel your feet connect with the Mother with each step you take. It will slow down your pace and allow you to move with more grace and calm. Trust that whatever you accomplish is enough. Perform every task with joy, giving it your full attention.

The emergence of your true nature can be helped with each and every one of these actions. If something does not feel right, then stop and reflect. Give yourself time to sit in peace. Tone every morning, with a melody, a note, or a verbal offering of gratitude for the new day.

Dear One, you are now beginning to live with a foot in both worlds. This is necessary for your forward movement. It can be challenging, but it is also a path to strengthening your connection to the All. And that connection provides you with the knowledge you need to move forward in love.

Love yourself and celebrate who you are

For you are so courageous

To be embodied at this time of change.

You are a conduit for this change

And you are learning your true nature,

That of love and connection to the All.

Dear One With All of Thee.

New Birth

 

The hesitation you feel

The doubt, the fear

All are a part of the labor

That is necessary for the new birth

In your life, in your world.

Dear One, you are in the process of new birth for yourself, for your world and for the Universe. And with this new birth comes the preamble of preparation, much of which is new territory for many of you. What is coming, how do I prepare, what should I expect, will I be ready? All of these are questions that precede a major change in your life. And this will be a major change.

There is nothing to fear, there is no preparation necessary. For indeed, you have been preparing for this event for many years, for many lifetimes. And there is a part of you which is ecstatic that the birth is almost here. Do not fight it, for it is already in motion. Instead, breathe through it and allow it to emerge in all of its glory, with all of its potential.

You have made this birth possible with your life, with the choices made by you and by many others across realms. This is the moment that many have been anticipating for eons. And you are ready. You are prepared, despite your doubts about your own strength and connection. You will shine beyond anything ever experienced before. You have been the catalyst. You have been the womb. And you, Dear One, will reap the benefits from this wondrous event.

When you feel restless, doubtful or fearful, just remember that you have loving support at all times. For we believe in you much more than you believe in yourself. Can you cease creating the expectations that can be overwhelming while at the same time can be very limiting? For those expectations are created with the human mind. And the human mind is not able to expand enough to see the potential.

Your human mind, while essential for moving through this physical world, does not have the capacity to see outside of this physical realm. And the movement, the growth, the changes come from outside this arena. And what does the human mind do with that which it does not know? It becomes fearful, doubtful and judgmental. Does this not happen with cultures or lands, people who are foreign to you?

Once again, we ask you to come from your heart. The new birth that is ready to emerge will come easier with the help of loving kindness. The labor will be shortened with lightness of being, created with song, laughter and love. Allow the grace of your higher self to assist as you allow it to guide you through your day.

Have no expectations, for it will be more wondrous than you can imagine. Have no doubts that you are ready and able to move forward in a loving way. Have no fear of failure, for that is not possible. You have already done much more than expected and if you were to come home today, you would have done enough. But stay, Dear One, and enjoy the bounty of your labors. You have done so much, even though your human judgment continues to question your progress. You have done so much already.

Dear One, treat yourself as kindly as you would others. For without self-love, it is not possible to love others. You are a child of the Universe, cradled in the arms of infinity and loved with the heart of the All That Is.

You are ready.

Gently allow it to emerge.

A new way of being for you

And for others.

Feel the connection it brings

To all of creation.

Birthed by you

Birthed for you

And for the All That Is.

 

Faith

How do you get through the trials of life?

How do you place one foot ahead of the other

And take another step forward?

How do you trust that it is actually a step forward

And not a step backward?

By having faith in yourself

And in your connection to the All.

Dear One, life on this physical plane can be very challenging. That is why this is a more powerful learning ground than most other possibilities. The physical body is fragile, though very functional. Human emotions come into play and you must acknowledge them without always acting upon them. And the mere act of being incarnated in a physical body gives the illusion of being alone. This is a challenge for the very best of you.

You have been told by many, including us, that meditation helps ease the weight of your perceived expectations of yourself and others. And yet, even in meditation, there is self-judgment for not being able to quiet the mind, as you feel you must during this practice. You feel pulled in so many directions with multiple tasks to do with limited time and resources. How do you move forward in grace and faith?

Dear One, the first step is to temper the self-expectations of your life needing to follow a certain path. Setting personal goals is a good practice, but those goals often do not include the energetic input from others. This illusion of being alone causes you to think that reaching your goals is determined only by your input and affects only you. When in reality, the web of connection sends and receives energies constantly across realms.

Can you, instead, move forward with faith that the result of your efforts is in perfect harmony with the All? Not reaching your personal goal does not define failure, for you have continued with forward movement. It could instead have allowed time for you to reassess, to reach out or connect with others. Or it may have provided a powerful lesson for you or for another.

You are in constant touch with many others, even though your physical body may appear geographically isolated. For this reason, you are affected by and also affect others in ways not within your conscious awareness. The result of your efforts may have placed you in exactly the perfect position to take your next step.

And when you take that next step, can you take it in faith and in gratitude? Can you understand that much of that self-judgment is only Ego ready to pounce and instill fear of failure within your psyche?

Dear One, can you allow yourself to flow from one task to another with the same ease that you move from one breath to another? Can you flow like water through your day, with a gentleness, filling the void which requires your energies at this very moment of time? Each moment may be different, have different needs for your presence, but can be reached with a fluid motion, with the grace of the flow of water. No rush, no judgment, just gentle movement forward throughout your day.

Step lightly, feel your foot connect with the ground upon which you walk. Breathe deeply and feel your connection with the air which fills your lungs. Stop and listen, pause and see what exists around you. Understand that your pause may have allowed another to take a step forward in the universal dance of being.

Dear One, take the time to bless yourself and your physical body for being able to reach this particular moment in time. Reflect upon how far you have come and trust that you will continue to move forward with gentle moves, sometimes with giant leaps, but always forward.

Release the need to have total control over your life. That is impossible because of the web of connection with the All That Is. Indeed, you have free will, always. But keep in mind the energetic vibrations which surround you at all times. If you feel that they are bringing you down, then move away from them, be it what you watch or read for entertainment or in your immediate environment with those around you.

As you continue to grow, you will become more aware of the changes of energetic vibrations around you and how you are affected by them. Allow yourself to gently flow to and fro, in between moments of action and rest. Allow this balance to be a part of your life.

You have so much to offer.

You have accomplished so much already.

And you have many more moments

Of joy and peace ahead.

 

Breathe deeply

Step lightly

And go forward with grace

With trust and with faith

In yourself and in the All.

Dear One With All That Is.

 

Compassionate Detachment

In these times of change

Can you show compassion

Without allowing your emotions

To rise to uncontrollable heights?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dear One, rise up in love and compassion.

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

Allow love to be your map to peace.

Approach these changes with compassionate detachment

And lead the way forward through this chaos.

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

A Divine being who is One with All of Thee.
