What If?

What if love replaced fear?

What if compassion replaced judgment?

What if peace replaced anxiety?

What if stillness replaced activity?

What if?

Dear One, there is a larger part of thee that resides within your heart. This part comes from love, from a place of stillness. It understands the connection of all things. And it is being allowed the opportunity to emerge in all of its strength to guide you forward from this moment on.

Just as a bud slowly emerges, awakening after a season of darkness and sleep, this part of you is ready to awaken from within and come into full bloom. But it takes time and nurturing. This natural cycle occurs regularly but often goes unnoticed.

Until there is a season of exponential growth. The contributing factors converge into an intensity of growth with blossoms exploding in beauty and abundance. That time is now. And you are being offered the potential for an outcome more wondrous than you could imagine.

Dear One, nurture this potential with love, not fear. Feed it with compassion and gratitude. See the possibilities that can emerge with a change in perspective. Understand that growth requires time. Time for strength to build. Time for adjustment to the surrounding environment. Time to learn how to use the emerging parts still tender and new.

You are being given the opportunity to burst forth in wondrous beauty. You have all that you require within you to move forward in grace and strength. An untapped well of potential.

Are you willing to unfold the casing which has covered your inner self for so long? Are you willing to connect with the heartbeat of the Source, to soften your thoughts, words and actions with a layer of gentle strength?

You, Dear One, are awakening from a long slumber. As you open your eyes, see the connection of all things. Understand how sharing with others is opening the channel to receiving in return. Practice shining your inner light outward to lift others higher. Understand that there is abundance for all. Open your eyes, your heart, and see the possibilities.

You are not helpless but a powerful contributor to change. It begins with you and how you move forward from this moment on. Sit in stillness and connect with that inner power. Send that strength down the conduits which connect you to all of creation. And if necessary, draw that strength through the same channels when you feel depleted.

You, Dear One, are capable, strong and resilient. All which come from within your heart. Solutions to perceived roadblocks lie within you. Seek the silence to allow them to emerge, to help you move forward with mastery and grace.

You are a child of the Universe. You exist upon many planes simultaneously. This is what contributes to your capability of navigating challenges with grace. You have the answers. They lie within you. They will emerge during times of stillness. Stop and listen. Stop and hear that quiet voice within. It is speaking to you.

Listen.

Trust that you are in the perfect place at the most perfect time to contribute the gifts you have to give. Approach your life with the knowledge that you are being guided forward with gentle hands. Understand that you can create a different world filled with love. And remember that you are a divine being always connected with the Source and the All That Is.

Choose love

Choose compassion.

Choose peace.

Allow stillness to reveal

The knowledge that you seek.

And see how your world changes.

It begins with you enveloped

In the loving arms of the All.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Impermanence

theweathernetwork.com

The Universe is in constant flux

Moving, growing, expanding

In every moment of time.

So too, you and your world

Are doing the same.

Understand the impermanence

Of your world and beyond.

Dear One, with every breath that you take you and your world have changed from the moment before. Nothing is static. Nothing is permanent. All that occurs in your life is a bridge to the next moment, the continued state of growth for you and your world.

Remember that you are connected to the All That Is. And so, you will be a part of any change that is occurring across the Universe. You are not alone. That is not possible as every part of Creation is connected. Consider this as you move through periods of great change.

Your existence here upon this physical plane is an opportunity for wondrous growth for both you and the collective consciousness. For what you learn here will travel through the web of connection to all points of contact.

But that connection runs in both directions and you have a wealth of knowledge and love being sent to you throughout your day. Change is necessary in order for you to have a full experience during this incarnation. And as the world around you evolves, as the Mother also expands in growth, you will be required to change how you live your life.

Dear One, can you view your world through a softer lens? Can you begin to understand that if one part of life here is under stress, the rest will be affected? Consider your physical body and how an injury in one part will affect the rest in one way or another. And how you respond to that injury, be it with fear or with love, will affect the length of the healing process.

You have much greater power in changing this world than you realize. Your approach to the daily fluctuations can have great affect upon the next moment in time. Whatever is occurring for you in this moment can change in the next. And yes, we mean to say what is occurring FOR you. For life here happens FOR you, not TO you.

Each moment in time is an opportunity for growth, for realization that you are a Divine being experiencing a physical existence. Every occurrence, every interaction provides you with an opportunity to act in love or with fear. These are the building blocks of your experience. The question is whether you want to build the foundation of your life, of your world, on fear or on love.

Consider the trials that appear before you and how you respond. Do you act as a part of the whole? Or do you act as if you are separate, requiring protection or distance from others? Whatever is occurring in your life at this time is a temporary state. The question is whether you will experience it with love or with fear. Do you build a world of fear or of love? The choice is yours. And how you respond will affect the timbre, the essence of the next opportunity for growth.

Change is inevitable. Change is constant. Change is how the Universe breathes. Whether it bellows or whispers is in response to your actions in this moment of time.

Choose love, Dear One. For that is your true nature. Choose to honor your connections with the All, for it is the truth of your existence. Choose a softer lens through which to view your life, your world. For you are a powerful being who is capable of creating your life, your world around you.

And if you do not like what you are experiencing at this moment, know that it will change in the next moment. And how it changes is affected by how you walk through this moment in time. See this existence as an opportunity for growth, not only for you personally, but for the All.

Remember that all that exists is this moment in time. The past is the lessons learned. The future is still being created. It is only the present which matters. And in a breath, it will be gone.

Choose love.

Know your power

And how you can change the world.

And understand that all that occurs

Is an opportunity for growth.

You are a Divine being

Who chose this path

To teach, to learn, to grow.

Grow in love

Dearest One With All of Thee.

The Knowledge Within

touchn2btouched.tumblr.com

All that you need to know

Resides within your being.

It lives within your heart

Waiting for your awakening

To guide you forward.

Trust yourself and the All.

Dear One, you are ready to take flight. The flight plan lives within your heart. And your guidance will plot the path for you to take. It only requires trust and faith, not only in yourself, but in the All That Is. The connection has always been there, waiting for you to flick the switch to ON. And, oh, as you do so, there is no limit in what you can do.

There is no ‘either/or’ in your life. For there are limitless options and opportunities for you to take. This world of duality has programmed you to see only in black and white, up and down, only this or that. When in fact, there are a plethora of gradations in between. And once you begin to realize that, taking a leap forward will not cause as much fear and trepidation.

For you have been programmed to think you must take giant leaps forward. That there are only two choices, either this way or one other way. Upon reflection, you will begin to see the many possibilities that exist in between those polarized choices. A closer look will show you that small changes can allow you to take monumental leaps forward.

Just as you are a beautifully intricate creation, so too, is the world of possibilities which swirl around you at all times. Those whom you have judged to be wrong, to be mean or selfish may upon closer examination be wounded souls filled with fear and trepidation. Those whom you see as perfect, to be admired and mirrored, also have a darker side which they conceal or keep at bay. Always more complex upon closer examination.

So too, with the world of possibilities for your next move forward. Another beautifully intricate creation. Each step you take is not the only step available to you. Each path you choose has many side trails, other possible directions to take. And many of these are not visible until you take that step and slightly change your perspective.

Each step forward, whether it be in doing the work upon yourself or in taking a path never before considered, will only open up more possibilities to see things clearer. The path forward is not usually a clear and straight one. The richness is often in those side trails never before considered. And with each step forward more knowledge will become available to you to help guide you onward.

You, Dear One, are ready and have always been ready. The difference is only in the size and in the direction of your next step. A trail might be slow and steady to allow you time for reflection. Or it might be strenuous and difficult, to help you see the inner strength that was always there within you. And as you change your perspective, you will begin to see more clearly. The blinders will be removed as you see yourself and others in a different light.

The possibilities are limitless, Dear One, and the only thing holding you back is fear. Ask yourself ‘what would I do if I wasn’t afraid?’ and reflect upon the answer. For this might surprise you and give you guidance for your next move.

Remember as you continue on your path, that your heart is your guide. And compassion and love are the walking sticks that will support you on your journey. The world needs you at this time. You have so much to offer and will have the opportunities to share your wisdom, your experiences to help others forward.

Be discerning and do not allow your ego to direct you. For you have much more to offer and can be of greater service to this world if you are guided by your heart. Ask for guidance to remain balanced while you do so. Any and all help you request will be there for you. Always. And remember that every choice you take is a step forward with knowledge to gain and to share.

Follow your heart

And allow the cloak of fear

To fall away as you take

Your next step forward.

Remember you are loved,

You are love incarnate.

And you are never alone.

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.

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.
