Sacred Life

Every step that you take

Every place that you go

Every interaction that you have

Is sacred.

For all of life is sacred

Without exception.

Dear One, you have not yet realized the sacredness of every moment in time. This is understandable as the human condition provides you with much distraction including emotions felt throughout your day. The sacredness of who you are and of all of creation is often lost in the task of living in a physical realm.

But the time has come for you to better understand and recognize the sacredness of your existence, of life itself. For so often it is taken for granted until loss is imminent, at which time awakening occurs with little time left for honoring what or who is before you.

Each passing moment is sacred, for it will never be available again in the same way, with the same opportunities. Each interaction that occurs in your life is sacred as a teaching moment either for you, for others, or for all involved. Becoming more mindful of your surroundings, of the subtleties of each interaction, will help provide more clarity for you as you move forward on your personal journey.

How can you attain this presence of mind during your hectic schedules of daily life? It begins with quieting the chatter in your mind. Emotion clouds your perception and many of you suppress emotions felt, only to be revisited by them at the most inopportune times.

How often have you reacted towards a person with emotions originally caused by, yet unexpressed towards another? The present recipient of this outpouring of emotion did nothing but provide a similar situation yet unresolved from this previous interaction. Had you taken the time to resolve the original conflict, you would have been able to move forward with clearer thinking and an open heart.

This is not to judge you but to offer you guidance on how to move forward with grace rather than with internal conflict. You are sacred to us and seen as such in other realms. The key for you is to own that sacredness which fills your entire being. By doing so, you will begin to see the sacred in others and in all things. For you, Dear One, are but an extension of the Divine.

You are connected to the All, we have said this many times. And when you can accept this truth, you will be better able to accept the support that comes to you through this connection. As you struggle, understand that situations or people will enter your life to provide the support you need at this time. Sacred connection allowing you to move forward with grace, surrounded by love.

Dear One, it begins with you. Recognize without judgment the inner work required for you to silence the chatter, the inner conflict you feel in times of stress. By learning to quiet your mind and open your heart to the help available, you will begin to recognize the sacred at work in your life.

You have been there for others in their times of need as others have been there for you. And if you are unaware of those present in the physical, remember that there is much support which comes to you in your dreams or by those unseen who send you love constantly.

You, Dear One, are surrounded and supported by love. Be it by those very close to you, by Mother Nature, or by unseen hands, the loving support is always there for you. Internal conflict clouds your vision and your perception of this love.

And so, we encourage you to begin to do the work necessary to move forward. Recognize the help available to you through synchronous events and interactions. Reflect upon your dreams and observe Mother Nature for subtle clues on how to proceed.

You are a sacred being surrounded by sacred love.

All interactions are sacred as they provide you

With exactly what you need in that sacred moment

To move forward in grace.

You are love, you are loved

You are indeed

One With All of Thee.

Finding the Peace Within

How do you settle the chaos within?

Silence the chatter

Still the judgment

And walk forward in peace and joy?

Dear One, your journey upon this physical plane seems a constant search for peace within, in a world where chaos and disruption are ever-present. How can you find that place of peace and silence as your mind continues to engage and process all that is occurring around you?

The peace that you crave lies within your heart and not within your mind. The key is to disengage from those constant thoughts moving through your mind. How is that possible? There are many ways in which to silence the chatter. Many choose meditation while others exercise or lose themselves in a creative task. Others might seek out the peaceful environment provided by Mother Nature.

Any and all of these activities will help you find calm from the storm of thoughts bombarding you throughout your day. But these are just the first part of the journey towards the peace that you seek. For many of you have unresolved issues which require reflection. Much of the turmoil you feel is due to a way of thinking which may need further study.

Place your hand upon your heart area and breathe, quietly and deeply, allowing the stress to release from deep within where you hold it so tightly. Then begin to reflect upon the impetus for the stress that you feel. Is it really just a recent event or interaction or is it linked to a long-held desire unmet?

Dear One, what is the fear which lies behind the stress you are feeling at this moment? Do not move away from this fear but embrace it and allow it to give you the answers required to move forward with grace. For your thoughts, your actions, are driven by one of two things, either fear or love. There is nothing else.

There are many names for these feelings that you have; jealousy, judgment, competition, anger and so on. But the root cause of these feelings is fear and only fear. The times of quiet which you find are only the beginning of the journey to allow that peace within to grow and flourish for you daily.

Keep in mind that this life of yours is lived in an illusion, created for and by you so that the lessons you chose to learn can be facilitated in the best way possible. Remember that all who cross your path are your teachers. Many of them invited by you in another time to be present on this plane to help you learn those lessons. These contracts were made in love, to be carried out in a physical existence for your personal growth.

However, due to free will, many plans go awry, perhaps with more harshness than was originally discussed. For this human existence carries its own sweet charm that can distract you from your purpose for being here. Lessons are still learned, despite these distractions, moving you forward upon your personal journey of self-discovery.

Dear One, this physical life is one of impermanence. This very moment in time with all that is before you may not be the same in the next breath that you take.  This provides opportunity to change in every moment of time, how you feel, what you think, and in what action you might take in re-action or response.

But it also means that every moment is sacred, never to offer the same opportunity again. Can you live each moment as if it were the last, for indeed, in a fashion it truly is the last? Can you begin to turn around your way of thinking and replace it with the feeling of love emanating from your heart? For your true essence, your true nature, resides in your heart connected in love to the Source of all creation.

You have come this far and survived.

Continue to move forward in grace,

Viewing your world through the lens of love

And not fear.

For love is who you are

And what comforts you the most.

For like attracts like.

Live in love

Forgive in love.

And remember the connection you have

With all of creation.

Dear One With All of Thee.

How Do You Remember?

Memories are flavored with emotion

And emotion can affect discernment.

Can you be sure that your memory of an event

Is exactly how it happened?

Dear One, there are so many things to consider when you reflect upon an event in your life. Did the emotional charge of the event affect the attempted communication at the time? What was your contribution; was it purely unemotional or did you add to the emotional charge with your actions?

Have you ever reflected upon a prior event and looked at it from another’s perspective? Can you distance yourself enough from what occurred to view it from a higher perspective? Are you able to see all points of view and the lessons for everyone involved?

Dear One, every person who crosses your path provides you with an opportunity for personal growth. Perhaps they remind you of another with whom you continue to have unresolved issues. In truth, your current reaction may have nothing to do with the one present in the moment, but with someone from your past.

Can you reflect upon past events and honestly look at how your actions affected the others involved? It is so easy to feel wronged or wounded or judgmental about others. And of course, you expect others to act in a way similar to how you would act. But, Dear One, take a step back and consider another’s place of origin, their place in the world.

Can you find enough compassion for another to reflect upon their point of view, their personal history and their wounded self? Can you see the Divine within all who cross your path? Just as you chose this life to learn certain lessons, so did all who are embodied at this time. In fact, many have, out of love for you, agreed to interact with you in a certain way when you crossed paths here upon this physical plane.

Human emotion is such a driving force and fear is one of the strongest emotions you feel as you inhabit these physical forms. For indeed, you are unable to see the web of connection, to remember the agreements made prior to incarnation for lessons to learn.

Step back a moment, breathe, and allow the emotion that rises from your belly to have its moment in time and then release it. This may take multiple attempts, but it is possible. Then focus upon your heart and find the love that resides there at all times. Awaken it, if you feel it has laid dormant within, and fill your entire being with its warm glow. Then send that love outward to all close and far. Blanket this world and beyond with the infinite amount of love that resides within you. For remember, that your heart is connected to the All, to the Source of limitless love.

As you continue to reflect and allow the emotion to dissipate, you will eventually reach a place of forgiveness, for yourself and the others involved. Upon continued reflection and growth, you may begin to understand the lesson involved for you or for another and see how each of you act as a catalyst for change for another. Over time, you will reach a point of gratitude for what occurred as you begin to see how it provided you with an opportunity for growth.

Remember, that change and growth often are the result of suffering. It may begin with love for another. And it can also end with love for each other, after the emotion has dissolved and the lesson is learned.

Dear One, this journey is for you. Others are in your life to help you along your path, just as you are here to help them. You may never realize the true nature of an event but have faith that it will always provide you with an opportunity for growth.

Be still and allow the compassion within to emerge

Compassion for yourself and for others.

For you all are here to help and guide each other forward.

Be gentle with yourself and with others

As you navigate this school of love.

Remember that love surrounds you.

Always.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Recovery and Renewal

Growth is occurring

Subtle, but strong.

Do not despair

Thinking you are stuck in the mire of past emotions.

You are, in fact, moving forward in love.

Dear One, regardless of how it appears to you, there is forward movement for you every day. You are growing and moving along your path at a steady pace. Perceived setbacks will occur as you continue to re-dress the wounds. But each time, another layer of healing has appeared and you are on the road to recovery.

The human condition is filled with emotion, both feelings that you crave and those you wish to bury. But in order to move forward, the wounds must be exposed to the light in order to best heal. Just as you put fresh dressings on physical wounds, so too, emotional wounds require exposure for another review.

And each time, as more distance separates the cause of the wound from the present moment, you will be able to view that wound from a higher perspective. More compassion, more forgiveness, more unbiased observation is possible each time the wound resurfaces in your life.

Do not feel as if you have failed when it appears once again. In fact, to the contrary, you are on the road to recovery. For with each appearance you have a different perspective.  By removing and replacing the dressing soiled with expressed toxins, you are slowly allowing the toxins to be released and discarded. And each time, there will be fewer toxins to remove as you slowly heal the tender wound.

Emotional healing is a process and is not completed in an instant. It can require many reviews. And as your awakening continues, the attached emotion loosens its hold on the wound. For emotion can cloud your perspective, not allowing you to send loving light to all involved.

The human condition is so skilled at burying emotions that you may be completely unaware they are present. Many of you may not even be able to describe these emotions once they surface. Facing the emotion and blessing it for the lesson provided will allow the healing to begin.

Dear One, growth can be subtle or it can be obvious to all. Trust that with each breath you take you are one step further along your path. If you find you are confused, then spend time in stillness and invite the emotions to rise and release their hold on you. Do this without judgment. Do this with love and gratitude that you have been given the opportunity to grow.

Tend your emotional wounds as you would a physical wound; with love and with care. Seek help if you feel they need more skilled attention than you can provide. But do it with acceptance and with love, for yourself and for all involved.

Buried wounds fester. When exposed to the light (love) and the air (breath), they heal more quickly. Provide this when old wounds resurface. Their appearance is an indication that you have grown enough to take another look at them; that you are strong enough to revisit and forgive a little more. Their appearance is a testament to how far you have come

Heal them with love, not regret or anger.

Heal them with controlled breath and stillness to allow the AHA moments to surface.

Heal them with forgiveness for yourself and all involved.

This is how recovery and renewal begins.

One breath at a time.

One heartbeat at a time.

One step at a time.

Always in a forward movement.

And never alone.

What if?

What if you chose love over fear every day?
What if you chose to ignore those little inconveniences every day?
What if you walked instead with joy and love in your heart every day?

Dear One, you have the power to change your world, every day. It is your choice as to how you walk through your day, in a positive fashion or in a negative fashion. It is your choice as to how long you will repeat your story over and over in your head. Either making yourself victim or hero. The truth is that if you live every moment in the present, trusting the unfolding of your journey, your life will be easier for you. Can you trust the process of your life? Can you trust that you are exactly where you should be? Can you trust that the people who walk through your life have lessons to teach you or to learn from you?

The web of connection is vast and covers the entire universe. Your life at this very moment contributes to the growth, the expansion of the universe. Your life will continue to unfold as it should. The choice for you is how you will approach this unfoldment. Can you, dear one, lay down the negativity, the resentment, the hurt and embrace the light and love that surrounds you? For indeed you are surrounded by light and love every step of your journey. But when you focus on the negative and nurse the wounds by repeating your story over and over, you are unable to accept the light that is offered to you every moment of your day.

We understand that there are times when you must review what has happened in order to make a decision of your next move. This helps with your personal growth. What we are encouraging you to do is not to hold on to that story longer than is necessary to learn your lesson from it. For by repeating your story over and over again, you feed your Ego as you create an archetype that you feel best suits you.

If you feel you have acted inappropriately towards someone, then forgive yourself and if possible ask that person for forgiveness. This can be done on the astral level and need not always be done in the flesh. If someone has acted inappropriately towards you, forgive them. Try to understand the place from where they are coming. Learn the lesson and move on. You need not interact with them again, but walk away with forgiveness and peace in your heart. For each and every one of you have past experiences which often mold the way you interact in the present.

Come from your heart in all interactions. For that is where your strength lies. And that is where you connect with the All. Give gratitude for the lesson and move forward. Do not add that interaction to your storyline, but release it and let it go. And see how much lighter your step is as you do this.

Dear one, make no comparison with others, for you do not know from where they have come. No judgments, only light and love. It can be done with a bit of practice and you will find that what you attract will be more light and love. For like attracts like. Be the shining star that you are and laugh more, sing more, dance more. And soon, it will become second nature to you. You will no longer travel down the dark passages where your ego leads you.

The power lies with you. Endless power which you have within you. Take a chance and try another way of living your life. And do not judge yourself if you falter at first. This is the way for you to learn and grow. Take nothing so seriously that you cannot allow your inner light to illuminate it in love.

For you are light
You are love
You are joy incarnate.
Reclaim who you truly are and see how your life changes.
