The Calm Within

inner calm

It is there

Waiting for you to find it.

The soothing calm needed

To continue moving forward

In grace.

Dear One, you came to this physical plane with many tools yet to be discovered by you. And one of them is the internal calm present in each and every one of you. The fast pace of this world with its demands and perceived priorities have pulled you away from the very place which will help you replenish; that well of internal calm, always present, rarely used.

In order to move forward and to grow on your path, more time is required looking within and finding that inner peace. There are so many distractions in your life which can make it difficult to find the time to go within and rest. Can you ask yourself how to prioritize your time to allow this inner journey to occur daily?

Many feel that they need to spend a lengthy period of time sitting and breathing, with no thoughts at all, in order to make that connection. But, Dear One, even the masters have thoughts running through their minds as they sit quietly. The key is not to engage with those thoughts. Allow them to flow out with your breath, releasing them as you exhale. Do not despair as more thoughts come. It takes much practice to allow the mind to settle down and to stop engaging.

Breathe in calm, breathe out a smile. How many times do you stop breathing throughout your day? A deep calming breath can do so much for you. Try it now. Inhale for 5 counts, hold for 5 counts, exhale for 5 counts. Filling your lungs with the air around you will provide you with more energy to take the next step.

You are connected to the Source and that connection lies within you. The physical body is just a vehicle, a tool, to allow you to move through this physical world as you learn what you came here to learn. The external physical world is an illusion created by you, necessary for your lessons, but not true reality.

Your connection to the All is within you. What depths of knowledge and love exist within that physical body of yours? The Universe does not exist externally. The Universe exists within you through this connection. You are a piece of this infinite expansion of love and creation. All that you see and consider real is but a hologram. You are so much more than you realize.

What do you do with this piece of knowledge? Know that the answers rest within you. Understand the synchronicities in your life are there to help guide you forward. For each and every one of you has this connection with the Source and with each other. Many of the guiding moments in your life are intangible, internal and energetic exchanges.

Those who are more sensitive understand how they are affected by these unseen forces and as you awaken you will also begin to notice these connections. Being aware of these is but another tool for you to use as you move through your day. But in order to become more aware, it is necessary to give yourself the time to sit and just be present with your breath, with your connection to the All.

This can be done in a moment, in a breath with the intent of finding that connection. The calm within will emerge as you give a moment of pause, of reflection, of love, of breath. Notice how often you hold that breath in anger, fear or frustration. When you do, allow it to flow once again, deeply and calmly.

Begin to use the tools given to you for moving through this physical existence. You are not your physical body, that fragile form which navigates this world. You are so much more, Dear One. The strength of you, the love of your creation and the connection to the All lie within you. Find that inner calm and go there daily, if only for a moment, for a breath. Find it and you will feel the peace of the Source, the strength and knowledge of the Universe. For this is you, in all of your splendor.

Love exists

It is you.

In conjunction with the peace within.

Do not accept the external illusions as your reality.

Your true self lies within

Connected to the All.

Indeed, you are

One With All of Thee.

Chaos

It appears all around you

And within you.

Where do you find the calm in the storm?

Within the center,

Within the core of your being.

Dear One, life appears to be out of control, blowing past you at rapid speed. Hubris swirls around you and you try to avoid its frantic movement, untethered, unbalanced, unleashed in chaos. Where can you go to find solace and peace?

Go within and find your center. Allow your breath to take you there; gentle movement, in and out, with the rise and fall of your belly slowing the cadence of your life, offering a calm respite from the storm. This is where you find your peace; at the core of your being. Anchor yourself to the Mother. Anchor yourself to the Oneness, who resides deep within each and every one of you. Reach for the lifeline of connection to peaceful existence as the storm rages around you.

Remember that all of this chaos is a releasing of long-hidden feelings and emotions that are beginning to rise to the surface of your being, of your world. Change is upon you, and the first step in this process is to expose what has been hidden for so long. Rather than running from it, rather than fearing it, instead bless it as it appears before you.

Never before has it seen the light and it is uncertain where to go, as its previous existence has been in the darkened corners of your world. It is untethered and flailing as it finds itself exposed for all to see. Its strength came from hiding in the shadows, encouraging you to believe it was larger and more powerful that it truly was. Bless it as it shows its vulnerability and weakness, revealing how its strength was only an illusion. Bless it and send it on its way, and breathe deeply from your core, to fill with love the new space freed in its absence.

Dear One, chaos can often accompany change, especially when it is such a wondrous shift beginning to occur within you and around you. Do not despair, for your strength is mighty and you are surrounded by loving beings who are guiding you forward and upward. Upward out of your trenches filled with fear and worry, upward towards balance, connection and joy.

Take the time to sit and find that inner core of strength which resides within each and every one of you. This is where your connection to your higher self lies. This is where the knowledge that you need is stored and revealed to you in ways you can assimilate it.

Just as in nature, the rotation of chaos begins when two opposing forces collide. And just as in nature, it is a temporary state of being, breaking down the old to make way for the new. Do not grieve your perceived losses, for upon further reflection; you will understand how you no longer need that which you held so close for so long.

Dear One, the calm within is always there. If you have not taken that journey for a while, it may take a bit longer to reach it, but rest assured, it is there for you – every moment of your day. Focus on the steady cadence of your breath, gently rising and falling. Allow yourself to be lead inward and upward on the waves of your breath. And allow the peace of the All to embrace you and comfort you.

The chaos is temporary. The inner peace is eternal. Release and let go of that which has been lurking in the shadows of your being. Replace it with light, a brilliant light of colors never seen by you before. You are growing. Your world is growing and wondrous change is imminent.

Bless all you encounter throughout your day, even those with whom you do not agree.

Bless all sentient beings in your world and beyond.

Bless and honor Mother Nature in all of her beauty and majesty.

And bless yourself for being the wondrous vehicle of change for this world and beyond.

 

It begins with you.

Trust that you have what it takes to move forward.

How can you not when you have such support behind you,

Dear One With All of Thee.

Quiet

Sit quietly

Breathe deeply

Close your eyes and be still

What do you see?

Dear One, there is always an island of peace available to you every moment of your day. When the outside world of your creation becomes chaotic and frantic, you always have a place of respite. No tickets need be bought, no baggage need be packed. It is a simple transition from chaos to peace.

This world which has been created by you is a world of constant motion, of many lessons and numerous interactions with infinite possibilities. But it often becomes too much for you with all of the perceived requirements for successful living pulling on you at every moment.

But this world is truly an illusion, a creation of your active mind, your learned behavior and yes, your fears. The truth is that your true reality is but a breath away in that quiet within each and every one of you. Your true reality is one of peace, of loving embrace, of quiet existence and it resides within you, available at all times.

Your perceived world has so enamored you that you have forgotten that there is another choice; a place of renewal, of peaceful existence, of connection to your true essence. We encourage you to return to this inner sanctuary with regularity if only for a few moments every day.

Dear One, the vibrational energy of this physical plane is increasing at a rapid rate. And for this reason, it is important for you to come back to your center to recalibrate, to breathe deeply as you connect to the true nature of your being. For indeed your true nature is one of peace and light and connection to the All.

Remember, too, when we refer to your connection to the All,that we refer to all of existence, to every soul ever created as well as the Source. This physical form in which you exist creates the illusion of separation. This illusion, along with the illusion of lack, has been created by fear and brings you much stress. And so the ball of fear continues to roll downhill gaining momentum and girth as it collects all of the negativity bred by your illusions.

Break this cycle. Stop. Sit quietly and breathe deeply. Allow each breath to take you further into that peace that exists within each and every one of you. And as you continue to practice this more often, you will discover that joy that has been there all along. For your inner light still shines brightly. It always has and always will.

For that inner light comes from the Source; given to you at your moment of creation in a breath of love. And with this inner light comes unlimited knowledge, unwavering love and true joy of existence. This is who you truly are!

Reconnect with your true self and with the strength and joy that resides within this physical frame.

Remember that this physical body is but a temporary place in which you reside for this part of your journey. Your true self is free, pulsing with light and love, fully aware of your connection to the All.

Separate yourself from the illusion created by this physical existence. For as you begin to remember your true nature, you can change the illusion of this world to one of joy and love. It begins with you.

You have the power. You have the strength. You have the knowledge.

Go within and reconnect, replenish and remember.

Ah, how your life will change!

Duality

What does this mean?

Do you experience this in your life?

Who are you really?

Dear One, you are now living your life with a foot in two worlds. One world is the physical world of which you are most aware and very comfortable. The other world is the energetic world, that unseen world of which you are also a part. It is only an illusion that all of your essence exists here upon this physical plane.

Now that the veils have thinned between worlds; now that the vibration of this world is moving to a higher level you will be more able to realize the true nature of your being. You were more aware of this as a child when your connection with your ‘imaginary’ friends was much stronger. Now, once again, those friends are calling to you to make their presence known to you. With the changes in this physical plane it is easier for them to show themselves to you in ways that are comfortable and non-threatening to you.

Dear One, it is time for you to understand that you came here with a purpose in mind. Your very presence here upon this physical plane makes a difference. The actions you do every day, the words you speak, the thoughts you think, make a difference in this world. You still do not understand how powerful you are and how you are able to create your world.

Yes, there is light and there is also darkness here upon this physical plane. Both serve a purpose in the continuing expansion of the Universe. For how can you learn, how can you grow if everything is so easy? Remember that you came here for certain experiences. You came here to do certain things. Yet, many do not fulfill that goal because of the distraction of the physical world.

There is no judgment if you do not move forward as you had planned. There is only gentle guidance to move you back on track, back to where you wished to be in your life here upon this plane. There may be people you meet that you recognize for just a moment. Consider that they may be someone here to guide you, someone with whom you planned to work with during your lifetime here.

Remember, every encounter you have is a holy encounter. Every encounter is a potential lesson for you and the other person. Every encounter is an exchange of energy, either positive or negative. Make it positive. And if in the moment of engagement, you are unable to do so, then release that negativity as soon as possible. Bless it as a lesson for you and move on.

Allow the radiance of your true nature to shine. Create a world of love and positive emotion. Do not try to control your world, but set your intent every morning and then allow it to unfold before you. Allow it to unfold as the petals of a lotus blossom with a brilliant light at its center.

You, Dear One, live in two worlds. As your conscious mind focuses on this physical world, your higher self reaches out to you from a different realm to guide you forward on your selected path. No matter what happens, you will be welcomed back to a loving embrace.

If you are confused, if you are unsure of your next step, allow for some quiet time to connect with your higher self. Ask for guidance and then watch for it. For the guidance will come in any number of ways. You are not lost. You are acclimating to a new way of being. Embrace it, be gentle with yourself and always love yourself and others. Allow this love that is at the center of your very being to emerge as your lotus flower unfolds.

Dear One, trust, allow and love.

Be at peace with where you are in this very moment.

See the potential in all interactions; the potential for a holy encounter.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Choose Joy

You have a choice every day

How to move forward.

Will you do it in joy

Or in fear?

Dear one, every day you have a choice on how to walk through your day. You can choose joy and contentment. Or you can choose comparison and competition. You can choose fear and self-judgment. Or you can choose love and acceptance, empowerment and inner peace. The choice is yours every moment of every day.

We observe you and the ways of the human spirit and wish to help you move away from the fear that still permeates your existence here upon this plane. Remember that love trumps fear, every time in every way. Love is stronger than fear. Fear likes to hide in the dark shadows of your mind, not showing its face to you. For if it did, you would see how weak and powerless it really is.

Dear one, know that fear has already lost the battle. Love is growing as all of the planes of existence come into alignment. As this alignment continues, the possibilities multiply for your own growth and that of the universe. Remember that the entire existence of being is dynamic. It is not static. And so, as you continue to move forward upon this plane, and you have made great strides, so too do the other planes of existence move forward. For all are connected.

There has been a shift here upon this plane recently which has affected all of you. Some may be more aware of it consciously than others, but all have been affected. This is the beginning of the alignment and so it will be easier for you to choose joy over fear. You will begin to notice changes within your physical and emotional bodies. Do not be surprised if you find yourself choosing different ways of being, of eating, of seeing the world around you. The ascension has begun and it is because of you and your presence here upon this plane.

Dear one, we hold you in much gratitude for choosing to be here upon this dense, physical plane at this time to help with this process. For even if you are not consciously aware of it, your presence DOES make a difference, a great difference. Allow your brilliance to shine forth. Shine it on any remnants of fear that show themselves in your world. Love weakens fear. Light disempowers fear. Joy creates a barrier that fear cannot cross.

Be of joy. Sing daily, to yourself, to others, to the entire consciousness of being. Sing. Your notes of joy will cross many dimensions creating a wave affect across infinity. Raise the energies here upon this plane as you choose joy over fear or judgment. You can do this. You have the power, you have the ability to love unconditionally, yourself and others, and yes, even those who try to spread fear across your land.

Choose love.

Choose joy.

Choose inner peace.

And see how your world changes.

The Quiet Within

Can you find that inner calm?
Where you connect to the Divine?
Be silent and allow it to open to you.

Dear One, it is there, that inner calm. It always has been and always will be. The path to it begins with deep relaxing breaths. Can you give yourself the time each day to go to this inner sanctum of peace, where you connect to the Divine?

There is so very much interference in your life, pulling you here and there, wanting your attention and your energy. And you succumb to the tugging at your sleeve to answer those calls, those needs of others, those requirements you feel must be addressed immediately. You are being pulled in many directions at once, it is difficult for you to just stop and breathe.

But in doing exactly this, stopping and breathing, you will find your inner calm, the strength that you have deep within you to move forward in your day. How often have you sat down to be still and you find yourself bombarded with thoughts of what you still have to do after you finish this quiet time?

Can you live your life in love and not fear? Can you understand that truly every moment is a gift and that all is well, no matter how challenging it appears? Can you recognize that every challenge for you is an opportunity to grow and spread your wings a little bit broader, wider, and more expansive? Everything that happens in your life will help you to move forward on your path. And time is not a limiting factor.Time is an illusion. And so the few minutes you spend each day sitting to find your quiet place within does not take away from the rest of your life. It does, in fact, enhance it.

Consider how much energy you put out worrying about how you are going to do this or that; how will you provide or accomplish or create? Do you understand that the few minutes each day you spend in that quiet place will allow you to calm those frenetic energies and give you the freedom to breathe more easily throughout your day?

The time, the energy you spend worrying, planning will be replaced with the understanding that all will be well. All will unfold exactly as it should. You will begin to understand that all you need to do is allow it to unfold. The more ‘time’ you spend tending that quiet place within, the less ‘time’ you require to get through your day. For you begin to understand the perfection of the Universe, the power that you have been given, and the love which surrounds you. Completely.

Begin today, for just a few moments. Focus on your breath, in and out, and allow the busy thoughts to pass through but not stay within your mind. It takes practice, we understand. But the energies are beginning to rise across your entire planet and doing this daily will allow you to better accept the new environment in which you now live.

All is well, Dear One.
Every moment is a gift.
And you are surrounded by those who want to help you.
Allow your Divine connection to guide you through your day.
For you are indeed One With All of Thee.
