The Leap of Faith

Can you trust yourself enough?

Can you trust the All enough?

Can you trust that you are surrounded by loving hands?

Ready to catch you if you fall?

Dear One, can you believe in yourself and in the All enough to take that leap of faith? For it is the next step on your journey. And truth be told, Dear One, you will not fall. Instead, you will rise, gently but steadily as you allow fear to fall from your shoulders. It has been the weight around your neck, holding you back from your next destination, that of self-empowerment and love.

You have been on this journey many years and many of you are tired and confused. You feel as if your life has been without purpose, when nothing is further from the truth. For you do not see yourself from our vantage point, as we cheer you on with each forward step you take. Oh, Dearest One, do not stop now when you are so close to achieving your next wondrous success on this personal journey you are taking.

Review your life and allow those moments of joy, buried under the mounds of self-criticism, to surface once again. Allow the note of a song, a glimpse of nature, a taste or a touch, to take you back to that forgotten moment of joy you experienced. There are many of them, you know. But they are lost in the chaos of self-deprecation and self-judgment.

Take a moment and remember. Allow your mind to be free and open yourself up to those times which brought you joy. Do this often as you continue your journey of remembrance of who you really are, a being of joy and love. Yes, there are wounds experienced along the way. But how can you reach out to others who are wounded, if you do not understand how it feels to be wounded yourself? Consider them badges of resilience in a world of duality and suffering.

It begins with you, Dear One, and how you view your life. Can you forgive, be grateful for the lesson and move on? Can you bathe those wounds in the nectar of love and see the light begin to shine forth through them? You cannot have compassion for others if you refuse to give it to yourself. For those in your life are but a reflection of you, a wounded soul courageous enough to continue the journey. Now supported by the knowledge learned from those experiences, stronger than ever, resilient and humbled.

You have come this far and are capable of soaring high above your greatest aspirations. Do not limit yourself in what you think is possible. For the possibilities are far grander than you can fathom. Take that leap of faith, without expectation, only with love, and see where it takes you. This physical existence is an adventure in possibilities. And yes, you have the choice of taking the path of love or the path of fear. Which do you choose?

You cannot be certain of the outcome of any step that you take. The only certainty is that it will move your forward on your journey of self-discovery. Do you have the courage to surrender and cease the old patterns of behavior which have not served you? Embrace the opportunities laid before you to help you shed the heavy cloaks of fear. For indeed, the cloaks did not protect you, they only covered the light that shines from within.

Allow the light, that brilliant light within, to shine, through your badges of resilience, through every pore of your body. Allow others to see your wounds, your vulnerabilities, and they will recognize a kindred spirit on a path similar to their own. Be at one with those who cross your path. They are there for a reason, Dear One. Love them without hesitation, as we encourage you to love yourself.

Call upon us and look for our help, our reply, in the synchronous experiences in your life. Remember that we come to you in ways to which you would be most receptive, in ways that are the least threatening to you. And many are our messengers, being the presence in your life that is needed at this very moment. See us in everyone around you. See us in the mirror reflecting back to you. Loving beings filled with light and joy.

Do not seek certainty, for it will never come. Instead, have faith that the choice you make is Divinely inspired to place you exactly where you need to be next; as a messenger, as a recipient of a message, or both. For remember that you play many roles in this life and each one is necessary for the forward movement of the All.

Acknowledge your place in this world

As a member of the community of One.

One with All, One of Love, One of Courage and Strength.

You can be certain of this.

You are never alone and you are surrounded by love.

Always.

Walking the Tightrope of Life

tightrope

roweig.deviantart.com

It is a balance, this life you lead

Between love and fear,

Between worry and pure abandon.

How do you remain centered

In the midst of chaos?

Dear One, you are pulled in many directions on this personal journey of yours. There are so many opportunities to choose fear over love or to worry needlessly about perceived failures, yours and others. How can you navigate this maze of emotions, misperceptions and challenges?

It begins with love and acceptance. It continues with healing breath and ends with gratitude; gratitude for the lesson, for the opportunity, and for the support, seen and unseen, which brought you to this end.

As you move through your day, your life, do not forget the unseen forces who travel with you wherever you go. They are with you at every turn you take, gently guiding you forward to a destination at which your magnificence will shine.

The first step is to pause and pull in the love of the Universe. Breathe in the loving calm offered to you with that cleansing breath. Turn off the recording which plays in your mind, over and over, falsely pointing out the failure, the misdeed or the cause for worry. Choose peace instead and counteract this recording with your own mantra, I choose peace.

When you reach a calmer state, review the cause of your distress and look for the lesson in it. Is it a check on how far you have come in changing an unwanted pattern from long ago? Are you looking at it objectively or from the perspective of your wounded soul? Seek out help from those who know you so well, from those who can help you pull back the blinders allowing you to see more clearly.

You are not alone on this journey and are not expected to walk this path alone. The truth is that unseen forces are helping to orchestrate the lessons you chose to learn in this lifetime. This is done by putting people in your life who will help you move forward, either by creating the tension, or by helping you work through it to the solution.

None of this is done with malice, only with love. For you are the courageous one to have come here to this physical plane to learn and share the lessons placed before you. Dear One, self-discovery requires courage and patience, with yourself and with others. For every interaction is a potential lesson for all involved, should they choose to learn it.

Can you move from a place of self-doubt or self-judgment to one of peace and gratitude? We are here to help you. Just call upon us. Why would you choose to walk this path alone when there is so much help available to you? You are worthy of this help, this unconditional love, which we offer you at all times.

Allow your life to unfold as it was meant to unfold. Understand that challenging situations are there for you to learn, to check your progress and how you might change your perception. There is no punishment, no judgment involved. The only judgment comes from you, as you continue to seek perfection from yourself or others. Dear One, if perfection were the goal, your time on this plane would be endless. For perfection is impossible in the human condition.

Your heroes, those to whom you look for inspiration, all have trials and tribulations. They all struggle. They all have set-backs. The difference is in how they perceive these challenges, in how much time they spend holding onto negative thoughts and self-judgment. It requires practice. It requires faith. It requires surrendering to the imperfections within themselves and this physical world.

You, Dear One, are exactly where you need to be at this moment. You have made immense strides on this journey to get to this point in your life. You have been the catalyst for change, for the learning of others, just by being who you really are, a Divine being on a physical journey.

Choose peace.

Accept help from those who love you, seen and unseen.

Know that your life upon this plane is of great importance

And that you have helped others on their journeys

Just by being who you really are.

One With All of Thee.

The Breath of Love

breathe as love

 www.500px.com

Healing is possible.

It begins with you.

Through your loving breath

Anything is possible.

Begin now

And help to change the world.

Dear One, your breath is love and as you breathe in and out you are able to circulate the love of the Universe; first within your physical body and then out into the world. Yes, it is that simple. Accepting the loving embrace of the All and then sharing it with all around you.

Do you not realize that every aspect of Mother Nature does this for you every moment of her existence? You are surrounded by love with every step that you take. This is why you feel more relaxed and calmer when you walk among the trees, along the brooks, at peace with your surroundings.

You are a part of Mother Nature, though many in this world feel that they have rule over her. You are one with her and she is a manifestation of the loving Universe, as are you. The difference is that she still remembers and exists in perfect harmony with the Oneness. Many of you have yet to accept your true nature, one of love.

The Mother transmutes carbon dioxide into oxygen with every breath that she takes, allowing you to exist upon this plane. She does this without thought, without judgment, only doing what comes naturally for her. You can do the same. You breathe every moment of your day. It is required for the very existence of your human form upon this physical plane.

Why not, then, use that breath as a vehicle for sending love out into this world and beyond? Without judgment, without thought, you may become at one with the Mother as you co-exist with the All That Is. But, you say, my life is more complex. I have emotions with which to contend during my day. I have more to do that just stay in one position and breathe love.

Indeed, you do. Your human form has more complexities than much of Nature, with the thoughts produced by that human mind, with the societal rules set up by humankind. Indeed, you do, if you allow your emotions to call you into actions, which are often regretted upon later reflection. You have been given a greater task, the one of personal growth, which affects the collective consciousness.

But you also have the ability to change, to create your world through which you move. You have been given the gift of creation, Dear One, as a means of self-discovery. And now is the time for you to use that gift for the highest good. The Mother is here to support you, no matter what your choice. She will continue to be a loving presence for you in this physical realm. For you are one of her charges, just as she is one of yours.

Can you begin to use the physical movement of breath as a vehicle for love. For those who struggle with self-judgment, breathe in the love of the Mother and of all of creation. Allow it to fill your entire being with the moist warmth of love, filling every pore with the light of love. Can you offer gratitude on your exhale for all the love which surrounds you, no matter what you think or do or say?

As your personal healing begins, can you then begin to send that love out to others, unseen and perhaps unknown to you, yet requiring that loving breath just as you did. You do not exist as an individual entity in this world or in the all of creation. You are an integral part of the Universal Being. You are connected to the pulse of love which breathes constantly throughout your existence upon this physical plane and beyond.

Connect. Connect with the Mother and with the All. Connect through the breath of love. Quiet that mind of yours and consciously begin to send and receive love with every breath you take. It begins with you, Dear One. You have the power to change the world, beginning with your breath. It is that simple.

Breathe deeply.

Inhale the loving embrace of the All.

Then send it out into the world,

To others who need it as you have.

You are One, Dear One.

You are part of the breath of Creation.

Accept your true nature

And breathe love.

Share it with all.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Consciousness

Rainbow Lotus by Ng Wai Chor on 500px

You are awakening

To the truth of your existence.

One with all you see

Co-creator with your Maker.

Filled with love.

A Divine being.

Dear One, allow the awakening to open your eyes to your true nature, that of a Divine being, at one with all. Accepting this truth will show you another way to look at your present situation. Accepting this truth will encourage you to walk, to speak, to act in love. For love is all there is and love is the essence from which you were created. Love is the source of your breath, the result of your existence.

Can you, in all aspects of your life, begin to look through the filter of love rather than fear? You are connected to the collective consciousness and it is through this connection that you receive all the knowledge you require to move through your world.

For your world is but a hologram, conceived in love, exuding love and malleable by your loving thoughts. The conscious thoughts which you have help to re-arrange the world which you see. It moves and adjusts according to the expectations of your mind. This has been the gift of this life in the physical. To be able to see the results of your creative consciousness. This is not something that is available on other realms.

It is time for you to realize this truth so that you can work with it to allow the innate love within everything you see and everyone you meet to burst forth, leaving behind all fear and suffering. You have been given the gift of duality here upon this plane. For how can you learn if there are no opposites? How can you choose if there are no choices to allow opportunities for growth?

Every breath that you take can be a breath filled with love or fear. Every choice that you make can be one made in love or fear. Every experience you have can be viewed with gratitude and faith or with suffering and fear. By experiencing all these possibilities, you are allowing others to learn through you.

Dear One, you are a student and a teacher at the same time. You have the opportunity to create in order to learn and to teach. You are in a unique position to experience that which is not possible on other realms. You are an adventurous soul who chose to be here to grow or to help another to grow.

There are no isolated incidents. There are no private thoughts, for their energies go out into the cosmos, and their energies create situations for growth across the Universe. Be not judgmental of who you are or what you have or have not done. For all acts are but one element of a lesson provided for your growth. You are not the same entity you were just moments ago, for you have grown with every step you take. You may not see it, but it is clear across the Universe as your progress is watched with love and gratitude.

Dear One, you are pure energy, temporarily embodied here upon this physical plane in order for all of creation to experience itself. Yes, you are an individual soul, but you are connected to the All, in love. Your time here is temporary before you return to pure consciousness, unembodied, free from the harshness of this physical world.

If you do not like what you see in your world, then change it. Use your powers of creation to gently shift the energies, raising them higher into the vibration of love. There is only so much we can do from our vantage point. It is up to you, Dear One, to begin the process. How? Breathe in love, breathe out love. See the Divine in all you encounter and practice heart-to-heart encounters rather than mind-to-mind encounters.

Forgive yourself as you begin to understand that life here is for learning, and sometimes you stumble.

Love all whom you meet, see them as kindred souls, trying to find their way in this physical world.

Give gratitude for all that you have and see the abundance which surrounds you. Remember that physical possessions are only holograms. It is the intangible, the experiences, which fill you with knowledge and teach you how to be the Divine being that you truly are.

Be at peace, Dear One.

For all is well with you.

Change begins with you and how you see your world.

Choose love and light and joy.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Dear Readers,

Below is guidance that I received for today’s solar eclipse. Thought you might want to read it also. Many blessings to all.

Celine

 

Regarding thy day of darkening:

Honor thy land

Honor thy physical world

Honor thy life and the love that surrounds thee

Honor all that has occurred to thee in thy life,

For it has allowed you to grow…

To be where you are at this moment of time.

Honor all of existence

Honor thy past, thy present and thy future

Honor thyself

Honor all of creation, Dear One

And be at peace with all that is

And with who thee are this day

And where thee shall tread tomorrow

Personal Musings

My computer died a few days ago. And so, I am in the library posting this weekly blog. I decided that instead of the usual message, I would get more personal and tell you a bit about my summer.

As many of you know, I am a blueberry farmer and we just finished an eight and a half week season, picking over 3800 pounds of berries. It was a bumper crop this year, despite an artic freeze this spring, when the temps went down to 10 degrees, very rare for North Carolina. Some blueberry farms a little south of me didn’t even open this year because of it. I suspect that their blossoms were further opened than mine, making them more vulnerable to the cold.

Why am I telling you these two things? Because as I reflect upon the past few months, I realize that any worry I may have had was needless. While other farmers scurried to protect their blossoms during that cold snap, I just called upon the fairies to protect my crop. I envisioned a warm blanket over them. I knew it was possible that I wouldn’t have any berries this summer. But not worrying about the outcome and trusting that all would be well, was the best thing I could do. (And honestly, I still do not excel at being free from worry, but I’m working hard on that!!)

The day my computer died, my morning meditation gave me the message that ‘all is well, not to worry’. I reflect upon that and wonder if I was being prepared for the upcoming challenge with the computer. They know me so well, my Tovarysh! But on the bright side, I got through my blueberry season with a functioning computer. And we were able to retrieve all the data from the failing hard drive. I may be without  connection for a few days, but maybe that is what I need as my body begins to recover from the season.

Do I still have a lot of farm work? You bet! But the pace will be slower as I transition from farmer to writer/teacher in the off-season. I can continue to watch the twin fawns come and go in the blueberry patch. There is a young buck too, a beautiful boy, who is part of the herd of deer who feast daily in that blueberry patch. Rabbits, too, who freeze at the sight of my dog. Lucky for them, she is getting older and no longer has the speed to catch them, though she gives it her best try.

The tobacco farmers near me are gearing up to harvest, as I am winding down. I always love this time, when I know that hard work is behind me and there is a massage waiting for me in the near future.

If there is one thing that farming has taught me, it is that I am not in control, and going with the flow is the path of least resistance. Mother Nature has taught me so much about the cycles of life. I feel so much a part of this natural world. I feel loved and protected and connected to something much larger than myself.

Thank you so much for following this blog. Hopefully, next week we will be back on-line. If not, I’ll use my imagination to come up with another way. Till then, allow yourself to be free.

Give yourself a respite from worry and fear. Believe me, I’m there with you, being given opportunities for growth daily.

Be well, My Dear Readers. Sending you all loving thoughts, my fellow travelers, on this physical journey.

Be At Peace

Melody of Rain ~ Christian Schloe Digital Artwork

There is no need for chaos

There is no need for worry

For thee are in a purposeful life,

Able to shine thy light on all around thee.

Dear One, you have a radiance that emanates from within at all times. It may be clouded by negative emotions. It may be stilted by lack of trust and grace. But your radiance comes from within and has the ability to shine on all around you; envelope them now, with your radiance and your grace.

We remind you once again that you are a Divine Being. You, Dear One, are a Divine Being, one with the Source and All That Is. The web of connection exists in ways that you cannot begin to imagine from your human perspective. And yet, you trust the technology that connects you to others here upon this physical plane; invisible, yet capable of allowing you to communicate with others quite distant from you.

Is it such a great leap, then, to believe that there is yet another connection, invisible to most, which connects you to all of creation? As you continue to grow in this human condition, your ways of being continue to incorporate more of what is a natural state of being across the Universe. Your inspiration comes from other planes of existence, from memories of where you have existed prior to this incarnation.

Dear One, as you begin to better understand this connection, you will begin to treat all of creation with grace and respect; honoring the connections, the symbiotic relationship you have with all.  How you treat others, so you treat yourself. There is no other way, because of this connection.

Remember that the connection you have expands out from this physical plane. You have a connection with others with a higher perspective of life here and elsewhere. These others are sending you guidance every moment of your day. Yes, often it does not permeate that cloud around you due to negative emotions. But in those moments of quiet, those moments of peaceful existence, those moments when your mind rests during sleep, these are the times when guidance can more easily fill your being. Is it not then understandable why often your greatest inspirations come after you have rested your physical form?

If you can accept that there is an unseen world that surrounds you which is loving and supportive, you may begin to have more AHA moments during your day. Can you still that active mind of yours which fills you with only logical and often fearful thoughts? All is well, Dear One. You ride on a cushion of loving embrace, without even having the awareness of its existence. Trust that this is so.

Consider how you are influenced by events happening in places in your world you have never visited and yet, you are still affected. Then expand that thought beyond the physical, expand that thought beyond this immediate time period, including past, present and future. The complexity of existence is far too much to fathom with the human mind. But what we wish to convey is that all are connected and that love surpasses fear at all times.

For every fearful thought or event, there is a multitude of love in the Universe to counteract that fear. And as you continue to grow, you will become yet another who will help counteract that fear with the love you radiate from your inner Source.

You, Dear One, are such a vessel of love with great potential to change your world. It begins with you. It always has. And you always have had loving support from the unseen world. You are the hub of a wheel with love coming from each spoke that connects to you. You are a harp with multiple strings creating beautiful music. If there is one discordant note, the others are there to continue the melody in all of its beauty.

You, Dear One, are loved beyond measure.

You, Dear One, are powerful beyond your imagination.

You, Dear One, are securely connected to all of creation.

Honor these truths. Accept these truths and step forward with grace and love.

For you, Dear One, have nothing to fear.

Dear One With All of Thee.
