Rebirth and Renewal

Fill yourself with the new light

that is arriving each day.

It vibrates at a higher frequency

And you are ready to receive it.

You have grown.

Embrace it

And the changes that come with it.

Dear, dear one, you have grown more that you realize. You have allowed yourself to be more open to receiving the blessings that come to you each and every day. And you are beginning to walk more often in love rather than fear.

Your growth and the growth of the Universe comes in small steps, in subtle ways when possible. Larger changes come only when absolutely necessary, for we understand that it is more difficult for this physical plane. And upon reflection, you may realize how far you have come.

Subtle changes can take you in either direction, towards fear or towards love. For a long time, you have slowly been accepting the fear that has permeated this world. It happened so quietly, permeating so much of your life, your way of being, that you did not realize the power it has begun to have over every part of your life.

But the uncovering has begun to show you where you are and many have opened their eyes to the truth of their lives. And there are enough who have awakened that the higher frequencies will now be accepted upon this plane. These are the vibrations of love and light, higher and more brilliant than those you have felt up to this time.

Those who have not yet awakened may feel discomfort and they are the ones who will need your help to see things as they truly are; to see the depths of fear into which many have fallen. Do not judge them. Instead, embrace them and show them another way of being. They may struggle and try to hold onto an old way of being.

Shine your light upon them. By being in your presence, they will slowly acclimate to this higher vibration. Show them the way by how you move through this world. They have forgotten who they are and will be fearful of change.

See them as a part of you, for indeed they are. See them bathed in love, which indeed they are. And hold them up as they struggle to find their way. Listen to them, for they need to be heard. And learn from them how best to move forward together in the new light that is shining on your world at this time.

For all have something to teach, and perhaps they can teach you compassion as they struggle to surround themselves in the cloak of fear. Dear One, this will take strength for you to move forward in light during this time of renewal. But you have the love, the guidance, of the unseen world who cheer you on in love and support.

Do not allow this rebirth to lower your vibration, for you are needed to keep it high as the renewal occurs. Oh, and the results will be so wondrous. Do not be discouraged, for forward movement is occurring every moment of your day. Trust in yourself and your capacity to love. Trust in the power which is yours to live with compassion and strength.

You are more glorious than you have ever imagined. For you are One with All. You are One with the Divine. You are filled with light so brilliant that it is seen across realms into infinity. This is the time you chose to be present here upon this plane. You chose it for your own personal growth and to help serve the Universal Being. And for that we hold you in deepest gratitude.

Allow your light to shine, Dear One.

Breathe in the love of the Divine with every breath

And share it with those around you.

For there is a glowing light

Which is increasing in intensity.

And it comes from within you.

Share it with the world.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

You are the I AM

You are not separate from the Source

You are one with all of creation.

Separateness is only an illusion.

This physical world is only an illusion.

You are one with the I AM.

Dear One, it is time for you to accept the power which rests within you. This is the power of the I AM, the Source, of which you are a part. You came from the Source, created from a spark of the Source, and hence have a part of the Source within you. Reflect upon that. For in order for you to complete your work, it is necessary for you to understand your own personal power.

We do not talk of the false power that is sought here upon this physical plane. Greed, ownership, control or domination are not true power. Belief in these powers have caused much pain and suffering here upon this plane. It is time for you to understand the power of the I AM that resides in each and every one of you.

Dear One, you have the power, the skills, the knowledge of the Universal Being resting within you. Much of this has been acquired over many lifetimes of existence here and upon other planes. For these experiences you and others have had over time add to the Universal knowledge, which is available to you as you continue to awaken and grow.

The human forms may be fragile, but your true self, your spirit/soul being is eternal with the strength of the Source within. The current chaos within your world is an overture to great change that is beginning to stir. Chaos precedes change and you are in the beginning stages of great change within your world. Do not fear this change for it shall provide much joy and release of the fear you have harbored for so long within your being.

Time as you know it is moving quicker as the veil continues to thin between realms. For this reason, it is very important for you to take time for yourself, for replenishment and balance. Reconsider the ‘priorities’ you have created in your life and bring to the forefront the task of taking time for yourself. Simplify how you live your life, for as you continue to awaken, you will realize that so much of what you have, of what you do, is unnecessary.

Dear One, honoring yourself is honoring the Divine, for remember that the Divine exists within you. The Divine is present in all of creation. Consider how you put much of yourself in all of your own creations, your writing, your art, your music or gardening.

The same concept applies to YOUR creation. You were created by the Divine, by the I AM, and so part of the Divine remains within you. The love behind your creation exists within and is a major part of your entire being. Reflect upon this.

When you begin to feel the stress of the world descending upon your shoulders, take a few deep breaths and recite the I AM a few times. This will bring you into closer connection to your true self, to your Divine existence, and will allow the flow of knowledge to come your way.

The connection that you have with the Divine allows for communication in both directions. As you live your life here upon this physical plane, what you learn is also shared with those who will never have the opportunity for this physical existence.

At the same time, there is guidance ready to come your way if only you will allow yourself the time and the silence to hear it. Open the channels of communication. You are ready, you are able and most importantly, you are worthy.

Do not doubt your true nature, for it is wondrous and the light which emanates from you will burn brighter with every step you take towards your personal awakening. You are not alone, you have not been forgotten. Quite the contrary, you are held in the highest esteem for embarking upon this journey of physical embodiment. You have much to teach those who watch over you in adoration.

Dear One, take the leap of faith and open your heart to your true nature. Allow the power of the I AM, the power of love, to guide you forward through your day. Give yourself time to connect and listen. For your guidance comes in many ways, often with just a passing thought or through the Mother. Be open and receptive to the connection you have with the All.

You, Dear One, are the I AM.

You carry within you

The knowledge of the Universe

Which will be revealed to you

Slowly, gently, when you are ready

As you continue to grow.

Dear One, we bow to you

In gratitude, for your courage

Dear One With All of Thee.

 

Finding Your Way

 

Are you feeling lost

Not knowing how to move forward?

Are you questioning who you are

And why you are not at peace

Within your heart?

Dear One, do not despair at the state of your life and the unsettled feelings you have within your heart. Do not despair at the number of questions you feel lie unanswered in your mind. Know that you are never alone and that relief is but a breath away.

The world in which you live is changing at a rapid pace, not only by events that are obvious, but also due to unseen energetic alterations occurring daily. Though not as obvious, these energetic changes are felt by you in sometimes subtle and often profound ways.

For you are an energetic being, connected to all things by these unseen forces. You are one with Nature, one with the Universe, one with the cosmic consciousness. You have lived most of your life focusing only on the physical aspect of your existence. But you now feel that something is missing in your understanding of how things really are in your world.

Your internal clock moves in synchrony with the all of existence, unnoticed by your physical nature. And your true essence knows that the time is now for you to become more aware of your true nature and connection. It longs for your consciousness to awaken once again to the awareness of who you really are, a Divine Being.

Your physical mind cannot comprehend this concept, while your heart center aches for your journey of remembrance to begin. And it begins with a breath, a centering breath, as you allow yourself to trust once again that internal, eternal voice that guides you back to your truest essence.

Your mind resists because it has no point of reference with this non-physical existence. The purpose of your mind is to help you navigate this physical world. But your heart knows and is aching to be once again your guiding force, as your time has come to reawaken and reclaim your position in the all of creation.

Fear not, but allow your intuition to come forth and guide you. This is your inner voice, and just as like attracts like, it is anxious to join forces with all those who have already begun the journey of awakening. This internal struggle will ease as you give more credence to what your sub-conscious already knows.

The answers are in how you feel, not in how you think. Follow your instincts and allow yourself the time to sit and breathe, to have the quiet time of connection. When you do this, your mind may not want to co-operate and stop the chatter. But do not despair, for every attempt you make to sit and just be will allow you moments in which you truly do connect; even though you may be unaware at first at how far you are able to travel, amidst the perceived chaos. Do not strive for perfection, only for practice, and one day you will suddenly realize that you have achieved more mastery in connection during these quiet times.

When you sit in silence, place your hand upon your heart and focus on the warmth of the touch. Contemplate those for whom you have gratitude, compassion or love. Breathe and just feel the calmness settle into your entire being. Your journey has begun and as you continue to practice this as often as you can, the internal struggle shall lessen. You will begin to trust the gentle voice that whispers in your ear.

Dear One, know that you are never alone and that help is always available to you at your call. Feel your connection with the Mother, with all things and all of existence. You are not greater or lesser than any of them; you are a part of them. Cease the judgment, the comparisons, and replace those with peaceful acceptance of your connection with all. You belong exactly where you are and you have something unique and powerful to contribute to the All.

Trust, as we do, that you will find your way back to Us. In truth, you have never really been apart from Us. There has always been a part of you who understands the reality of your existence. It is just now stretching and beginning to emerge in all of its glory, moving from within your heart to fill every cell of your being.

Dear One, all is well and you are on your way.

Accept the glory of who you really are.

Accept the connection which has always been.

Accept the loving embrace that envelops you at all times.

You are never alone and you shine with a most glorious radiance.

Dear One With All of Thee.

 

Timing

There are times when you have plans to do something, a timeline that you have created in your minds, for when your tasks should be completed. You plan and you plan and you push to complete the tasks in the time you have mapped out in your minds. And when you hit an obstacle, when things do not go precisely as planned, what do you do? You push harder. You try to make all of the pieces fit into your schema, how you see the task completed and fulfilled.

What you often fail to put into the equation is the rest of the All. Everything happens in its own time and that includes the plans that you have for your life, your day, your families. There is a rhythm to the cycles of life and often Ego wants to fit everything nicely, cleanly into its pre-ordained timeline. Not taking into account the rest of the world, the rest of life.

When your plans do not go according to your timeline, when you hit roadblocks, the thing to do is to stop. Take a breath, and realize that perhaps everything has not yet taken place outside of your little circle in order to have your task manifest. You must remember that All are connected, like gears in a clock. And in order for something to materialize, there are happenings that must occur in an orderly fashion to move things forward. And some of these are out of your control.

The difficult thing for you to do, we know, is to just wait. If your plan is not falling into place in the fashion you expect it to, perhaps there is something, somewhere, that has not yet occurred to move your task forward. Your Ego wants your task completed NOW, but that is not the way it truly is in the world.

Can you trust enough, can you have enough faith to just stop and allow the universe to move in its own rhythm? When you are up against an obstacle, can you realize that it is not yet the right time to move forward on this task? And if you use your intuition, when things finally begin to move forward, you will see that one piece of the puzzle that needed to be put into place.

There is a rhythm to life and you are a part of that rhythm. To flow with the current of energies moving forward….that is what you can do to be a part of the All. Ego is accustomed to pushing. But in doing so, it does not follow the natural rhythms of life. And therefore the result is not what it should be. The task may be completed. But not in the way it was meant to be. Think about that. How many times have you forced an issue, completed it, but the joy in its completion was missing?

Be at one with Mother Earth. Spend time in nature to reacquaint yourselves with the natural rhythm of energy flow in your world. Removing yourself from this natural teacher of life, the Mother, feeds your Ego, in thinking it can do whatever it wants, whenever it wants. And that is the illusion.

Remember your connectedness to the All. You are a part of the natural rhythm of life. And if you allow Mother Nature to lead in this ‘dance of life’, you will begin to feel the pulse. And the steps of your Life Dance will come to you more easily. Perhaps you will even skip and relearn the joy once again of living among yourself, the pieces of you which surround you everywhere you go. For remember, you are not alone in this existence. Feel the flow. Feel the rhythm. And dance!

A reblog from cauldronsandcupcakes: Living as a Sensitive Soul

I wanted to reblog this post because I think what Nicole Cody, Cauldronsandcupcakes.com has to say is very important. As a child, what I heard very often was, ‘you’re too sensitive’. To the point that I tried to build up a wall around me to toughen up. It wasn’t until I was well into my adulthood that I realized the gift of my sensitivity and was able to develop it.   If I’d had guidance in my earlier years, perhaps it would have been easier on me and on my family….for none of us understood what was going on with me. 

I think of all the sensitive souls that are being born. And if sharing these words will help them or those who know them, then I’ve done my part.  The world is changing and we all have to show compassion and kindness to others, but most importantly to ourselves. 

And to RowingThroughLife.wordpress.com and DiabeticRedemption.com, I thank you both so much for mentioning me in connection with your Very Inspiring Blogger Awards.  I have always loved the humor that RowingThroughLife uses in her writings, whether discussing her strange employers or her physical trials in climbing her spiritual mountains. That she can keep her sense of humor through the challenges of her life is truly inspiring.  DiabeticRedemption is another inspiring blogger who has fought her demons, both physical and emotional, and come out on the other side, filled with light.  I am truly amazed at how much she has grown in just the short time I’ve been following her.

I also want to thank all of my followers.  It was not easy for me to start this blog and go public, but in doing so I have connected with so many wonderful people out there. I am honored that you find these writings helpful.  In the coming months, I may not be visiting other blogs as much, and I apologize for any lack of response I give for your wonderful posts.  Blueberry season is coming rapidly, and since I have an acre of blueberries that need tending, marketing and selling, my time will be limited.  But I will continue posting every week as I have been.  Keep smiling!  Namaste.

 

 Living As A Sensitive Soul

http://cauldronsandcupcakes.com/2012/03/17/living-as-a-sensitive-soul

As most of you know, I’m psychic, and have been this way to varying degrees all my life. All of us are intuitive – that’s our birthright, and it’s hardwired into us. Even the most disconnected or ‘non-believing’ of us will still have gut feelings or hunches strong enough that we can acknowledge and act upon them.

But some of us have a much greater sensitivity than that. If you have experienced any of the following (not as a result of mental illness, or a drug or illness induced state!) then this post is written for you:

  • lucid dreaming
  • deja vu
  • precognitive dreams or visions
  • awareness about people, places, objects or events that has no rational cause nor explanation
  • an ability to know information about people
  • sensing the energy field around people or places, and having that affect your body or emotions
  • seeing energy, faces, or other images either in your mind’s eye or through your own eyes
  • hearing voices or knowledge not your own – either as a physical sound, or as a voice, knowing or thought that arises inside you that you somehow understand is not your own
  • having remembrance or recognition of past lives
  • being drawn to psychic activities and tools, such as cards, books, courses, modalities and crystals – where you feel compelled to have or work with these, even when your rational mind protests or doesn’t understand
  • sudden recognition of things previously not known to you – such as knowing the names or uses for things outside your profession or fields of study, or knowing your way around a place you have not ever visited
  • sensing, seeing or hearing Guides, Angels, those who have crossed over, and other energetic beings
  • connection with star people, recurring dreams about or remembered incidences of UFO or alien encounters – these are often not threatening or unpleasant
  • recurring dreams for which you have no explanation
  • a strong sense that you are here to do something, to contribute something, to help in some way – this feeling becomes stronger over time until, if you haven’t worked out what it is yet, it becomes almost a sense of despair or desperation
  • saying or writing things without knowing where the information is coming from
  • performing healing, art, writing, music and other creative acts where you suddenly ‘know’ what to do, even if you have never been shown before
  • understanding animals, children or others with no voice to communicate
  • sudden strong emotions flooding over you that are totally unrelated to what is happening right now

I’m sure there’s more that I could add to that list, but that’s a start…

If you’re sensitive energetically then you are bound to be sensitive in other areas of your life.  This is especially true if you are going through a process of spiritual or psychic awakening. At a time of awakening, energies and abilities that have been dormant within you begin to assert themselves in your life.  This can be quite a turbulent and confusing time.

From long experience, these are my suggestions about how to live as a Sensitive Soul as you begin to Awaken.

  • Rest.  When we’re growing and changing, rest is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves.
  • Avoid crowded places such as shopping centres and football games when you are feeling particularly sensitive or energetically vulnerable.
  • Avoid difficult relationships and people who drain, upset or unbalance you.  Limit contact with the crazy-makers in your life.
  • Eat well.  Favour organic foods, with an emphasis on fresh, local produce, with plenty of leafy green vegetables and root vegetables, rice, pulses and yoghurt. Avoid processed food and sugar. Some people may need to avoid meat at this time.  Others may need meat to ground them.  Listen to your body.  If you’re especially sensitive avoid wheat as well.
  • Avoid alcohol, drugs and stimulants.
  • Take a good powdered magnesium supplement.  Your muscles and nervous system use magnesium to relax and it we also burn it like rocket fuel when we are engaging in energy work and psychic activity.
  • Drink plenty of fresh, clean water.
  • Use yoga, qi gung or tai chi to ground you and move energy through your body.
  • Spend time in nature.
  • Spend time on your own, exploring the things that interest you.
  • Avoid chemicals in your cleaning and personal care products. Avoid places that have a strong artificial or chemical energy.
  • Use natural and alternate therapies to help clear and support your body.
  • Meditate.
  • Pray, and talk with God.
  • Explore vibrational therapies such as bush or bach flower essences, crystals, music, colour and aromatherapy.
  • Trust, look for support and know that things do get easier over time.

I’ve created a very simple six minute guided meditation to help you open to your spiritual gifts in an energy of safety and protection. Once you know the basics you can easily guide yourself through the process on your own.  Love and Light, Nicole xx

Nicole Cody’s Simple Guided Meditation for Psychic Protection

Movement Through Time

What of time and how it passes through your life?  It flows freely, often moving too fast or too slow for your means.  Is it possible to stop the passage of time? To slow it down, to re-live a day, in order to set things straight?  To do it better, to re-live a moment?

 What would you do if you had this in your power, to change the passage of time?  Would you change what happened or just re-live the moment as it originally happened?   Do you not often say that you wish you could do something over and you would do it better. Do it differently. Do it without anger. Would you believe us if we told you that time is an illusion and does not really exist?  That all that matters is what is happening now, right at this very moment?  ‘But’, you say, ‘I want to change what I said or what I did or how those words came out’.  Then do so. 

 As you lie in your beds, go back to that moment in time and replay that scene.  Have it unfold the way you wish that it did.  Do it with love, with forgiveness and send it off, to float through the veils of existence and replace what happened before.  You do this on your computers all the time, replacing files with revised ones, with words that have been edited.  Your mind works the same way as that computer and you can revise. Often you do this unconsciously, to soften the emotional attachments to those memories.  So then, do it deliberately, consciously and then move though your life as if it really did happen that way. 

 We give this exercise as a means for forgiveness, not avoidance, but of forgiveness.  If this is done in love, you will find yourself acting differently towards yourself, towards others. Because that moment of regretted action has changed.  But it must be done consciously, and in love.  That is the only way. The point of this exercise is to see one another healed. From an action or a word said or done in anger or in haste.  If apologies are necessary, then say them. Send them out with true intent, across that web of connection.  They will be heard, felt, if only on an unconscious level, by those to whom you send them.   And so you can now forgive yourself and others and move forward with an open heart.  For we understand that there are those with whom you have unfinished business.  Those who you are unable to see or speak to in the physical.  So do it another way.  Remember you all are all connected and this exercise is unlimited by time or space.  Let go of regret, self judgment, punishment. And replace them with forgiveness and love.

 Then emerge from that cocoon and spread your wings.  Fly away with that beauty of a fresh butterfly on a new journey, a new day and know that all is well.  All is love.  All is forgiven.

Forgiveness

The time here on this plane is one of growth, learning and experience for you. A gift to you. In order that you may better know yourself and who you really are. Who you can be. The possibility of a constant connection with your Source. And with that growth process come times of uncertainty, regrets, actions or words that were said or done in anger or in haste. They happened in just a moment, and yet you dwell on them for a lifetime. Why is that? Why can you not let go of those indiscretions, those poor judgments, those impulsive acts that were done without thought or in the spirit of love?

You hold yourselves to such high expectations. And if you fail to meet those expectations, the judgments are harsh, severe and long lasting. You have not yet grasped the idea of living in the moment. What happened is past, what could happen has not yet. And where that leaves you is in the Now. And that is all that exists.

Children make mistakes as they grow, explore and begin to learn who they are. In many ways, you are still children on the path of life. You easily forgive a child. Why can you not forgive yourselves or others who have ‘wronged’ you? We say ‘wronged’ to use your words as you do in these times. But step back. Have you truly been wronged? Or have you perhaps been given an opportunity to grow? ‘How?, you ask. With an opportunity to forgive. To understand that this action or word can ‘wrong’ you only if you give it the power to do so. We understand your degree of severity for actions here upon this plane. And the ‘appropriate’ punishments you feel should be given. But can you see them instead as a mis-step, a stumbling, an opportunity for you to open your hearts, rather than shut them down?

How many of you have not spoken to someone for so long you do not even remember why you are no longer speaking? The wounds you hold so close to your hearts do not serve you. They only block the light that wants to shine forth from your hearts; to shower love upon those who cross your paths. We understand that this can be difficult for you, as this has been your way from the beginnings of your civilizations. Yet how has this served you? We do not say that you need to interact with all who have crossed your path, especially those with whom you feel discomfort. We are saying that forgiveness is something you hold in your hands, in your hearts. The lifting of those negative emotions from your heart will lighten your step. It will release you from the power of those memories that you have held so close for so long.

Forgive. Allow yourselves to see those with whom you have had strife as a mirror image of yourself. Someone who is growing, learning and on the path of self discovery.

Forgive and see how much lighter you feel.

Forgive and feel relief from those ailments in your body.

Forgive and feel the freedom that accompanies it.

Forgive yourselves and others. And feel the positive shift in the world.

This is the way forward and we are here to guide you gently, lovingly. Cheering you on. Become who you really are, a being of light and love, and see how your life will change.
