Silence

It is the birthplace of ideas

The platform for observation

Both external and internal

It is when your connection with the All

Is the strongest.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You are One

You are connected

The knowledge within will emerge

During those times of quiet.

Give yourself the gift of silence

And see what transpires.

It may surprise you.

Dear One With All of Thee.

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.

Change Your Perspective

See your world as we see it,

As a community of courageous souls

Here to learn lessons from each other

Here to teach each other

And to find their connection

Despite the limitations of the physical form.

Dear One, you are one of a community of star seeds who have come to experience life in a physical form. This required much courage, as this way of living, feeling separate, is the exact opposite of your normal way of being. But you chose this temporary embodiment because you understood the value of what could be learned in such a short period of time.

In your natural state, you understand that all are connected and all are part of the whole. Unique personalities are honored and cherished as each is another expression of the Divine in Its many forms. These are the truths with which you have lived for so many eons of time in other realms that did not involve the physical separation that is a part of this world.

You have inhabited this realm many times, in many lives, and have evolved during each return to this physical plane. However, it is now time for a major change in the vibrational energies here and so you are beginning to feel the beginnings of the shifts in consciousness.

This is the time greatly anticipated across many realms and you chose to be here to partake in this transitional shift. Many of you are becoming more awakened, understanding that the old ways of being no longer work here in your lives. Though you may not understand the significance of this in your conscious mind, your soul knows exactly what is occurring. And for many of you, your soul, your higher self, is gently guiding you forward, connecting you to those who can now help you.

You are needed at this time to help turn around the way of thinking, of being, here upon this plane. The universal fear that has been building is now at a point where it shall be dissolved in ways that help shift the consciousness of this physical plane. The more who are awakened at this time, the easier it will be to continue this process which has started to make the shift.

Consider how those who appear so different from you in appearance, beliefs and customs are so easily judged to be unworthy of your respect or attention. Consider how the suffering of others is but a fleeting thought for many. Consider how dis-empowered so many of you feel as you move through your lives.

Can you begin to change the way you move through your day? Can you cease the ‘auto-pilot’ and truly experience every sacred moment of your existence? Can you look more closely, listen more intently, to those with different ideas and see that indeed, you are connected in love rather than separated by fear?

The chaos which is present is here to bring to light many of the thoughts that were hidden so deeply for a long time. For how can change occur if you do not see the disharmony that requires change. If all continue to embrace fearful living rather than love, the coming changes will feel more powerful.

Please understand that this is not punishment but the natural evolution of the collective consciousness that is now occurring. There is much interest in how those embodied here on this plane will grow and evolve during this process. And there is much help available to you, for your success is anticipated through loving eyes. Ask for help. And then be mindful of how that help comes to you. For it will come, though perhaps not in the way a human mind would expect it.

You, Dear One, are a powerful, loving soul, who is connected to the All of Creation. You have been given tools to use during this journey. Ask and you will be shown how to best use the gifts, the tools, you have been given. For you are dearly loved, no matter what you do or say or think.

Embrace the love we give you and share it will all you meet.

For you have more in common than you realize.

It is time for you to open up to the wondrous light of the Universe.

It is time for you to walk in love and cease fearful living.

Seek out the teachers to help you

For they are here waiting for you to call.

You, Dear One, will never be abandoned

And will always be loved.

Dear One With All of Thee.

What is the Next Step?

what is the next step

Itsyourturnblog.com

Where do you go next?

What do you do?

How do you know

If you are on the right path?

Trust yourself

And your connection

To the All.

Dear One, you have experienced much strife and chaos in your world. It is exhausting to your physical body and to your energetic make-up. Frenetic energies swirl around you and immobilize you from forward movement. This is the time you choose silence, stillness and breath.

There are moments in time when the best, the only thing, for you to do is to be still and breathe. Trust that each inbreath is filled with the loving embrace of the Universe. Allow it to fill your physical being with its gentle caress. Allow it to soothe your frayed nerves, your energetic body, which is reacting to the frenetic energies that surround you.

This is not who you are. This is not how is needs to be in your life. For you are a Divine Being with a direct connection to the Source, to the All. And it is through that connection that you will find solace and guidance. It begins with your breath and with the inner stillness that is present deep within you. Shut out the noise and go within. Call to the higher beings who surround you with their love. Ask them to help you find the silence, the calm within.

Dear One, it begins with you. It begins with not accepting the chaotic energy as yours. It may surround you, but it need not affect you, for you are stronger than you realize. Beyond that chaotic frenzy is a calm that expands out into the Universe. And when you begin to feel the light touch of that calm embrace, pull it in and focus on that tendril of peace that connects you to the Eternal Being of Love.

Once you have allowed your inner peace to emerge, share it with others. Send love to this world, to all who suffer greatly because they have lost their way. And know that there are many souls out there at this very moment, doing the same for you. Some are from the unseen world, from the realms of higher vibration. But many are also from this physical plane, who have awakened and are using their connection to you through the great web of existence. They are sending you loving energies from all corners of this physical plane.

Do not focus on the negative, on the chaotic events that are occurring in your life, in your world. Reach out and focus on the lifeline of love which is extended to you every moment of your day. For you are not alone, you are loved unconditionally, and you are strong enough to take another breath and connect with your true essence.

Can it be that simple? This world appears so complex and resistant to change, resistant to accepting love as a guiding light for the forward path. And yet, change is possible. Change is occurring and you are an integral part of that process. For it is time for you to join those who send out loving kindness throughout their day. Do not disregard the power of this simple act.

The awakening has begun and with it, all are being challenged to brush aside the heaviness which surrounds your world. Light the path by allowing your internal light to shine brightly as you begin to trust the inner strength which comes from your connection with the All. And once you begin to trust yourself again, use the gifts that you have been given to continue to foster the change that is occurring.

All that you do, all that you say, all that you think, if it comes from love, will be more powerful than any amount of perceived earthly power. Joy comes not from personal gain of earthly goods or status. Joy comes from something much simpler, which exists in abundance for all. Joy comes from love, from seeing the beauty in all things, and feeling the peace of your connection with the All.

Trust in yourself

And in your connection

With the All That Is.

Use that connection

To be a conduit of love

For all who cross your path.

Begin with yourself

And expand outward into infinity.

Be of love,

Dear One With All of Thee.

Hurricane Florence

My Dear Readers

I live in central North Carolina and so will feel the effects of hurricane Florence very soon. That means I may lose power for a week or longer. If this happens, I won’t be doing a post on Sunday. This will be the first time that I haven’t done a weekly post since the inception of this blog in September 2011. But in the event that I cannot get a post out, I wanted to give you two different tools to use in times of chaos. These are not my tools, but ones I learned from elsewhere and forgive me for not having the sources at hand to share with you.

First, if you are feeling stressed or anxious, you can do this exercise which will help calm you. This is from the tapping community.

  1. Sit or lie comfortably.
  2. Cross your left ankle over your right ankle.
  3. Extend your arms out in front of you and place the backs of your hands together.
  4. Cross your right hand over your left hand so that you can now clasp your hands together. If done correctly, you now have your right wrist laying on top of your left wrist.
  5. Now rotate your clasped hands under and up to your chest. Elbows are down and your clasped hands are close to your heart area.
  6. Gently allow your tongue to rest on the roof of your mouth.
  7. Now just breathe and enjoy the hug that you are giving yourself.

A dear friend showed me this and I do it often especially if I cannot fall asleep at night due to a racing mind. It works with the energetic meridians in your body.

Second, this is a meditation to help you overcome your fears.

  1. Close your eyes and think about a fear that you have.
  2. See it in your mind’s eye and answer these questions:
  3. What does your fear look like?
  4. What shape is it?
  5. How tall or wide is it?
  6. Does it have a texture?
  7. What color is it?
  8. Does it have a smell?
  9. Take a good look at it.
  10. Then wipe the slate clear and start this process all over again, once again seeing your fear and answering the same questions. Then wipe the slate clear.
  11. Repeat this process at least 6 times or until your fear has transformed or disappeared.

The point of this exercise is to see your fear. Because once you really look at your fear, you will realize that it is not as powerful as you once thought. This exercise came from one of my shaman friends and again, I apologize that I don’t have the source at hand.

I hope that one or both of these will help you in the coming days. We all can do our part to counteract the fear in this world with love. But it begins with each of us working on our own stuff. And the more balanced each of us can be, the better we can serve the world.

Many blessings to you all and I’ll be back as soon as I can.

Generator and gas, water, food that doesn’t require refrigeration, batteries, flashlights and candles. I think I’m as prepared as I can be.

Please send loving energy out to all those in the world who are experiencing trauma and challenges. We will get through the hard times together with love.

And remember chaos precedes calm and change.

Sending much love to you all.

The Awakening Has Begun

You are on course

To expand your consciousness

And to continue to awaken

To your true nature.

Empowered with love

And through love.

One with All of Creation.

Dear One, the process of awakening has been occurring for many years across this plane. The purpose is for all of those courageous enough to embody at this time to become more aware of their true nature. You are already enlightened beings who were willing to give up that memory for a short time so to learn and grow here upon this plane. In doing so, your enlightenment has expanded and allowed the collective consciousness to grow through you and your experiences here upon this physical plane.

As the shift begins to quicken, so too will your opportunities to see your life more clearly. You will begin to look through your heart rather than through your mind. Both are necessary in order to exist here upon this plane, but the heart has been dormant long enough on your journey forward. By opening it, you will experience more freedom in your daily life and more clarity in your interactions throughout your day.

This is a time that has been anticipated for eons as you have slowed your forward progress in past generations. But the time is now for you to better understand who you truly are and the true nature of your existence here with the many lessons provided you in this lifetime. The purpose of these words and the writings of many others is to plant seeds to help you to move past your fears and move into loving relationship with the All That Is.

As the shift continues to accelerate, the sensitivities of many will be tested as the spiritual climate upon this plane continues to change. Many are not ready or prepared to move forward and will wish to slow down the progress. Others may appear to be doing this but in reality, are playing a role that they agreed to play in the expansion of the collective consciousness. Both groups require your loving attention, for judgment will not suffice.

Love supersedes fear, is more powerful than fear, and when expressed with pure intent will help greatly in this forward movement. How another responds to that gift of love you offer does not matter to you. The important task is to create a climate of love across this physical plane as you continue to open your heart.

Love will brush away the mist that has been created by fear so that you may see more clearly. That which you imagined so powerful will shrink in size as you see its true nature. The movement is not to eradicate dark completely upon this physical plane. For this plane exists in duality and so both light and dark will continue to coexist. The difference will be in the neutrality between both as you disempower the fear and darkness that has chained you for so long.

In time, you will be able to observe with detachment any attempts fear makes to ensnare you. Instead of feeling the rise of fear in your belly, you will be able to send out love from your heart. This will shed light on the darkness and disempower it as it attempts to take hold on you as it did in the past.

This process includes the darkness you feel within your own self, as all have the duality existing within them. Accept that shadow self and send it love. Reflect upon how it may have served you in the past and how it might serve you in the future with some alteration and moderation.

You, Dear One, are poised to take flight as you have not yet experienced on this physical plane. Embrace these changes that are coming. Embrace the love that surrounds you. Embrace the love that fills your very being. And understand that no offering of love is too little or too late. For remember that time truly does not exist but in your mind.

Be of love.

Be of love.

Be of love.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Curiosity

How do you walk through your world?

Do you question what you see

With curiosity?

Or are you so frozen in your mind

That you can not see through the fog

Created by that repetitive way of thinking?

Dear One, are you so imprisoned by your mind that you cannot see past a certain way of viewing the world? Does fear cloud your vision enough that you do not pose the questions ‘Why’ or ‘Why not’? Are you stuck in repetitive thinking, unable to take a clear view of what is happening around you?

How do you move through your day? Do you assume that those you meet are a certain way because of past experiences? Or do you allow yourself to walk with an open mind, listening to your inner voice, your gut, your intuition? Do you take everything at face value or do you delve deeper with the acknowledgment that things may not be exactly as they initially appear to you?

The world and all of its creatures are constantly changing, in flux with the expansion of the Universe. All are in motion, regardless of the illusion of appearing static. If you could see life at the molecular or atomic level, you would be more aware of the constant vibration of all things. And movement allows for change, within and around you.

Dear One, forward movement requires motion. For this reason, it is helpful to you if you allow yourself to consciously take steps every day in a new direction. This could mean altering your daily routine with just a minor change, but enough that requires you to be mindful of what you are doing, or where you are going.

By doing this you are allowing yourself to move away from fear. For if a new direction requires your presence, you are forced to step outside of your mind where fear constantly holds you back. And as you make small changes in your daily routine, you will become more curious about what you see, who you meet or how you feel?

Do not assume that you are the same person today that you were yesterday, for you are not. Each day with its experiences changes you. You are stronger and one step further upon your path this day than the last. This is the same for all of creation and since all are connected, individual growth is felt by all.

As you begin to make small changes, allowing your mind to be more open, synchronicity will have more opportunity to guide you forward. It occurs more often than you realize. But as you allow curiosity to lead you forward, you will be in a more receptive state to be aware of the synchronicities in your life.

Being more aware of your place in the world, if only in a small part of it, will begin to shift you from that prison of your mind. Your senses will become more finely tuned as you observe the world and interactions occurring around you.

Becoming more engaged with your environment will open up more opportunities for you as you more consciously see the ebb and flow of life around you. It begins with mindfulness, curiosity and trust that growth comes with motion, if only the smallest step forward.

Do not think you know all that you need to know. Do not allow yourself to be imprisoned by the repetitive thoughts from your mind. Instead, observe the world, allow curiosity to move you forward and see how much you can learn by taking just a small step forward every day.

Change is occurring every moment of your existence. And this includes change within you, in how you see, or feel or respond to the world around you. Trust that you will be guided forward by a gentle hand. Understand that others are filled with fear as well and that it takes courage to move forward.

Make no assumptions

For what was true in the past

May no longer be true in the present.

Move forward with curiosity without judgment.

For what you see may not be all of what is.

Allow life to unfold and guide you forward.

Gently and with loving embrace.

Curiosity is what brought you here

And what will move you forward.

Dear One With All of Thee.
