Self-Doubt

You are a most powerful being

Able to create your world

By changing your perspective.

Why then, do you doubt so

Your ability to move forward

In love?

Dear One, this world in which you live, your entire existence, is held in sacred union with the Divine at all times. The unseen world supports you with every breath that you take. You are held in gratitude for incarnating at this time to do the work which can only be done from this plane. And yet, you doubt yourself, your existence, your purpose, your power.

Understand better the workings of the Universe as we tell you that life here unfolds FOR you. Life does not happen TO you. The challenges which arise can be viewed from many vantage points. Do not always choose the most negative perspective. For this only causes you distress when always there is a more positive, joyful way to view your life.

Your intuition, your higher self, guides you at all times. If you can allow your heart to open and shut the chatter of your mind, clarity will come. Reflection of all actions, words or thoughts is always helpful. But not when the self-judgment continues to replay over and over again.

If you can trust and walk in rhythm with the Universe by trusting your intuition, then you will be able to see the thought, the word, the deed, for what it truly is.  An opportunity for growth, for change. You are not able to see the true effects of what happened a moment before this moment. For your physical body limits your sight, your movement and your understanding.

Can you begin to accept the actions of others as another step forward on their own paths. The brief interaction you had with them may be the perfect impetus for them to reflect and make a change in their lives. The seed has been sowed, perhaps to be nurtured at a later time, when conditions are more favorable for growth.

There may be no immediate outcome or there may be opportunity for more clarity, more conversation or more action. Can you trust your intuition enough to follow it, to follow your heart in all that you do? Can you see those you judge instead as wounded souls trying to find their way? And can you allow others to grow at their own pace, with relationships chosen by them for their greatest lessons?

You, Dear One, are a teacher to many, a student of others, and an integral part of the All That Is. The web of connection joins you with all sentient beings here and beyond. Your presence is powerful and often all that is required for the next step forward. Trust. Trust. Trust that you have the strength, the capacity to love and the opportunity to grow in the most wondrous way.

Do not let fear hold you back. Instead, listen to your heart. Act with authenticity and integrity in all that you do. And understand that you are not aware of all the possibilities of outcome that may occur in the next breath which you take.

You, Dear One are divine, able to move mountains. Do not cower in self-doubt or fear. Trust the connection that you have with the All. Understand that the lessons were chosen by you prior to your birth. And always, always, always you have a sacred connection with the Source.

Breathe in that strength of connection and breathe out love to all, including yourself. Self-reflection is helpful, but self-doubt will undermine your forward progress.

Stand tall and acknowledge

That the Universe supports you

In all that you do.

For knowledge is gained

Through every experience

No matter through what colored lens

It is viewed.

You are One, you are Sacred, you are Loved.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Choices

Every moment of your day

You make choices.

What guides those choices?

And how do those choices

Affect your life?

Dear One, as you inhabit this physical world you have the free will to make infinite choices every day. The choices that you make clear your path forward as they affect how your life evolves. What guided those decisions that you made? Was it love, fear, faith or trust? And should you judge those choices as good or bad?

Each and every one of you came here with a lesson to learn. And in the process of learning that lesson, you often are an unknowing teacher for others. How can this not be true as you all are connected through the web of consciousness?

The key to this is how observant you and those around you are to what is occurring right before your eyes. There is always an energetic, subconscious portion to every occurrence in your life. And each of you will absorb this no matter what. But the true substance of the lesson is revealed only through observation and reflection. And often this reflection is done in hindsight.

Consider this. How often do you mimic the actions of another without thinking? These might be choices made by a parent or an elder that were often done when you were a child. As that child, you repeated those actions without considering that there were other options. They were familiar and how things were always done. So of course, you continued following the same path.

But often, that way of living is not the best path for you. And it takes much reflection and courage to realize that you must take another course, to live your life another way. Making that choice may be difficult and frightening as you do not know what lies ahead. These are the times when being your authentic self and following your heart will free you to follow your own true path.

There is a great lesson in this for you. And also for those who encourage you to continue following the more familiar ways of being. The unknown lays before you with equal possibilities of causing you pain or joy. And often you are meant to follow this part of your path alone. Do you have the faith, the trust in yourself, in your connection with the All, to take a chance?

Dear One, all paths lead to the same end. It is just that some paths are richer in what they provide for you. Some paths are filled with numerous lessons unattainable if you remained on the familiar course. Yes, challenges may lie ahead. In fact, that is most assuredly a given.

But in facing those challenges and moving through them, you will find a strength, a resolve, a character trait that you did not realize you had. And in making this choice, you often are providing an example for others, encouraging them to do the same.

The possibilities of your life experiences are infinite, Dear One. So, if you are not comfortable where you sit at this moment, then make a choice to change your position. Reflect upon the path that has led you to where you are. Is your life serving you as it is? Are you serving others in your current state of being?

But remember also, that often, a pause is needed before taking another leap forward. This pause may be necessary to give you time for rest and reflection. This pause may be necessary for the matrix to rearrange itself in order to provide you with the best choices. Everything within the web may not yet be in place to lay your best path before you.

Dear One, do not compare your life to that of others. For each of you is unique in the gifts you have and in the lessons that will fill your life. If you are observant and reflective, trust that you will be led forward exactly to where you need to be to take your next step. And if a pause is necessary, accept it with the faith that it is exactly what is required at this time of your life.

Each choice made will provide a lesson. Observe your choices and those of others without judgment. Be kind to yourself and others. For each life lived contributes an important piece of knowledge to the collective consciousness. Each life lived is worthy of respect. And each life lived affects you in some way, regardless of your awareness of this connection.

Live your life to its fullest.

Embrace the challenges

With the richness each contributes

To your life.

Move forward with faith and courage.

And give gratitude for each lesson

Provided to you or to others.

All are connected.

All are loved.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Joy

fr.mochifa.com

It awaits you

Every moment of your day.

Can you allow it in?

Can you change your perception

And see it everywhere?

It exists and waits

To envelope you.

Dear One, there is such joy surrounding you at all times of your day. But it is your perception of your world which clouds your vision. Can you begin to push through the fog created by your mind and feel, accept the joy that is yours?

It begins with you and how you view your world. Any loss which you feel can be seen another way. A loved one has discovered freedom from this physical world and any pain which accompanied them on this journey. You are no longer limited by physical boundaries and can be together in a more natural way, in an energetic way, at any time of the day.

A lesson learned may have been momentarily painful, but the benefits received shall open up wondrous possibilities in the days to come. By experiencing this lesson, you have grown. You have taken a step forward upon your path. Rather than self-recrimination, there can be celebration and gratitude.

A disappointing outcome tells you that was the wrong path to take. You will be gently guided forward towards the more appropriate direction to take. The timing may not have been the best for you to reap the most benefits from your next step forward. Remember that all are connected and often a piece of the matrix has not yet been awakened to create the most perfect outcome for you.

Patience, forgiveness, acceptance and gratitude are all traits to be nurtured. By doing this, you will open up the possibilities for more joy to flow through your veins. There is a lesson in every encounter which you have.

It may be a piece of information given to you which was needed for your next step. It may be an awareness that your response was a habitual response and not appropriate for that encounter. It may be a sudden realization that the other person is not as you originally perceived them. This may allow you to show more compassion or to retrieve the power you had given them in the past.

Understand that life is here for you to grow, to learn and to begin to accept your own divinity. Your wings are beginning to sprout. Allow them to emerge over time and enfold you in their strength and their light.

You, Dear One, have come so far. Celebrate how far you have come. Celebrate your strength and resolve for arising from your bed and just being present at times you wished to do otherwise. Celebrate the opportunities you had the courage to take. Give gratitude for the guidance, the compassion and the love directed towards you throughout your day.

There is so much to celebrate. The joy is there clouded by your feelings of inadequacy or malcontent. Can you step forward and dissolve those clouds? Can you trust that your life is given to you as a gift, wrapped in love and anticipation of how you will use it in the coming days?

The choice is yours, Dear One. We reach out to you in love, eager to guide you forward in your journey home. Can you begin to see the synchronicities which are the trail markers for the path to take? Can you accept that you have the power to see life as a gift or as a burden?

You have so much to offer to the All on this journey of yours. And each step you take is not taken alone. Call upon us when you feel the loneliness or despair. Close your eyes and feel the loving embrace extended to you at these times.

Consider, if you can, that the world around you is filled with love. Every atom of vibration is set into motion with love. You are an integral part of this. You are connected to a vast matrix of possibilities.

Take a chance.

Discard the fear

And replace it with faith.

Faith in yourself and in the Universal Being.

Accept the joy of life.

Accept the joy of you.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Freedom Through Faith

Can you begin to understand

That trusting yourself

And the natural order of creation,

Trusting that all is occurring as it should

Will give you the freedom you seek?

Dear One, your human perspective causes you to see only a few possibilities of how the world, the Universe, can grow and progress. In truth, there are an infinite number of potential outcomes, all dependent on the interactions occurring at this moment. And so, we ask you, which is more important, the interaction, or the outcome?

As you exist here upon this physical plane, you see only a miniscule portion of creation. You live in a holographic world of illusion, which has the purpose of being a stage for growth for you and all who exist here in this realm.

But if you were to view life, all of creation, from our vantage point, you would understand how limited your perspective is. You would see how many opportunities are available for you and your personal growth, and thus the growth of the collective consciousness. You, in experiencing life this way, are acquiring knowledge for all of creation.

Your world and interactions not only affect you and the others involved. They affect all of this realm and beyond. Your growth, your personal progress, becomes growth along the entire web of connection. Whatever happens to you and your immediate world continues the process of learning and growth far beyond what you can see.

Remember that you are but one integral part of a complex tapestry of life, much of which does not exist in a physical form. This physical realm was created as a means of accelerated learning. For being in the human form, feeling the illusion of separateness, enhances the growth which you experience.

Think of what a leap of faith it takes for you, in a human form, to trust that you are not alone, that there is an unseen world which surrounds you and supports you. What a leap of faith it takes for you to trust that there is a purpose for all of the suffering you see and experience here upon this physical plane. And what a leap of faith it takes for you to begin to trust that all is occurring as it should, for the purpose of the growth of the Divine, of the All, which includes you and all of creation.

Can you change your perspective of this world and see how it is not the outcome that matters as much as the process of learning, of growth? If you do, you may begin to understand the power that results from this awakening to the force, the power of love and compassion. It is the awakening that will bring you home. Home to the realization that you are divine and contributing to the expansion of the collective consciousness.

You, Dear One, are here to see past the perceived differences among you, to realize that you all are the same, in power, in your divine nature, and in your capacity to love and therefore change the world. There is no difference between you and anyone/anything you meet upon your journey. All are sacred. All are equal in their role to help move the Divine forward in self-realization and experience.

If you can achieve but a mere piece of this realization while in this human form, while on this physical plane, with all of its distractions and strife, you will have surpassed all expectation. You will have awakened the internal flame of light within, allowing it to shine brighter with each passing moment.

Can you begin to trust in yourself, in your own divinity and sacredness, and in the truth that indeed you are moving forward with each breath that you take? Focus not on the outcome, but on the process. Move forward with pure intent, motivated by love. Banish fear from your life and begin to trust your connection with the All.

For you, Dear One, are just beginning to come into your power. Not the power so many seek here upon this physical plane. But the power of love and connection. The possibilities are endless as you begin to open you heart and your mind to the wonder of life.

Trust in yourself

Trust in the Universe

Of which you are an integral part.

You are just now beginning to open

To your potential of service to yourself

And to the All of Creation.

Embrace your life, your power

And walk in love and faith.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Embrace the Divine Within

It is time to accept your true nature,

That of your divinity

And your connection to the All.

Change your way of viewing your world

And look through the eyes of the Divine.

Dear One, the energies are rising and it is time for you to see your world, your life, through a different lens, through the eyes of the Divine. For you are a divine being and it is time for you to shed the notion that you are a mere mortal with no power, with little capacity to change the world. It is time for you to accept your power and use it for the highest good.

You are a part of an infinite web of divinity. It exists all around you, each cell playing an integral part in how this world, your world, and the collective consciousness expands into its highest potential. You have not even begun to reach your potential and what holds you back is the illusion that you are a mere mortal, lacking power and reach.

Dear One, you are so much more than that and we encourage you to begin to shift your perception of your world, of yourself and of the interactions which you have every moment of your day. For each interaction has the potential to raise the collective consciousness through the mixing and raising of energies during that interaction.

Many do not understand this and so we are speaking of this concept today to create a small crack in that illusion you have believed since your arrival here upon this physical plane. Can you begin to accept how powerful you truly are in creating your life, in changing your world, and in expanding the collective consciousness?

It begins by recognizing the sacred in everyone, everything that you encounter. If all were created by the Divine, and that is truth, then how could they not have the sacred energies of the Divine within. Can you begin to accept that as you begin to awaken to your true nature, your life will change, your world will change. The choice is yours whether or not you choose to accept this truth.

The energy that expands and raises the vibration of your world, is the energy of love. You have seen, you are seeing, what fear does to a world as it permeates every part of your life. You, even in your desire to rise above it, still are surrounded by it, in the words you use, the thoughts you have, and the judgments of yourself and others. It begins with you, Dear One. You are the answer. And you are not alone in this journey.

Understand that there is more to existence than this world you see with your physical eyes. It is a world which you feel in your heart, yet are still unsure what to believe when ‘un-natural’ occurrences appear in your life. You discount them as mere aberrations and refuse to see the meaning behind them. You are ready, Dear One, to take the next step in the awakening that is occurring here upon this plane. For the rising of the vibrations here affect much more than your local environment.

All are connected in divinity. All are connected through love. However, there are many who choose not to see that love and feel more comfortable wrapped in fear and trepidation. You are ready, ready to take the next step forward into the light of the Divine. And once you take that first step, you will begin to realize that the light comes from within you, for you ARE divine, as is all of creation.

Open your eyes to the possibilities of life and the power bestowed upon you to change your life, your world. It is your choice as to which life you wish to live, one of love or one of fear. There is a surge of energy flowing into your world at this time and it will only become stronger as its vibration rises around you. Those who choose not to accept this incoming loving light will feel uncomfortable, for it is so different from the fearful energies which have permeated your world for so long.

Dear One, open your mind, your heart, to the possibilities of a divine life surrounded in love. Once again, we say to you how courageous you have been to walk this physical plane. You arrived with amnesia, without the memory of who you truly are. But the time now is for you to awaken and we sing in loving anticipation of what is to come for you and your world.

Choose love over fear.

Honor the divine in all you encounter.

And with each step forward

Know that you are surrounded by loving arms

Who will support you and guide you forward.

You are divine.

You are love.

You are the vehicle for change.

It begins with you.

Dear, dear One With All of Thee.

What Have You Learned?

what have you learned

Photo by mitikusa.net on flickr

What have you learned

In this life of yours?

Reflect upon how far

You have come

And you will be surprised

At the progress you have made.

Dear One, so many of you are self-critical as you think about your life this day. You look only at what you are not, what you have not yet accomplished or what you have done wrongly. Perhaps you should be kinder to yourself as you reflect upon and see how far you have come in this life of yours.

The human condition is so focused on certain ideals that need to be acquired in order to label yourself as a success. Who initiated this concept? Why would all of humanity be required to follow the same path in order to be admired and considered successful? We question this as most of the ideals are truly inconsequential in your path back to the Source. And many of these ideals are transient as they change with each new generation that comes into maturity.

Dear One, do not shudder as you remember actions or words expressed previously in your life. The mere fact that those memories cause you discomfort shows how much you have grown. That is what this life is meant to be, an opportunity to experience different scenarios in order to learn and grow. We have said before that the Source experiences Itself through you, as you are a part of the Divine. That is truth.

This quest to be perfect in the human condition only causes distress and self-recrimination. How can you learn if you do not fall? Is it not more important that you pick yourself back up and continue to be present in your life and in the lives of those you love? What a perfect lesson in humility, compassion and forgiveness.

We have mentioned before that what you see as your flaws are also your greatest strengths. It is the discernment as to when to draw upon these traits that leads to maturity and personal growth. Do you not understand that because of your experiences, your perceived flaws, that you are in a perfect position to help others move through the same lessons? And understand that this knowledge learned crosses realms far beyond this plane.

Oh, Dear One, you are already perfect in every way. The challenge for you is to understand that this perceived reality is but an illusion created for you as a learning ground. And you have learned so much and shared so much knowledge already with others here upon this plane and beyond. Those challenges with which you struggle only make you stronger and prepare you for future events when your strength will be needed for others around you.

You are wondrous and have come so far. Do not, do not minimize all that you have already learned. Share those lessons with others. And for those still seeking, look to others who have experienced similar situations for guidance. Be observant of others rather than being self-absorbed and you will see how others struggle as you have. Depending on where you stand on this curve of knowledge, reach forward, reach backward, reach upwards or below and connect with others. They are your community, your source of strength and guidance, and there is much to be shared in all directions.

Remember the connection that is ever-present between you and all of creation. It is difficult to acknowledge this when you are in the midst of a challenge. But if you can remember that you are not alone in your suffering, that others have experienced the same, that loving arms reach out to help you, oh how that will ease your pain.

Dear One, you have come so far and are ready for the future. You are already awakening at a rapid pace. Of this, you may not be aware, but those of us who lovingly watch over you can see the progress and celebrate your passage into a new way of being each and every day.

Honor yourself for waking up each day and being present, despite the challenges.

Honor your connection with all of creation by being respectful and kind to all living beings.

Honor your progress as you reflect upon how far you have come.

You have more strength than you realize.

You have the power to create your world

As a most loving and gentle world.

But it begins with you

And how you see and treat yourself.

Do so with kindness and compassion

For you have come so far.

And the future possibilities

Are infinite, beyond measure.

Dear One With All of Thee.

What is This Life?

What is this life you live

Here upon this physical plane?

For what purpose do you exist?

And how do you know

If you have succeeded?

Dear One, you were created in love, are a creature of love and are embraced by love with every breath that you take. Your personal challenges are just lessons presented to you in order for you to discover your inner strength; your connections with others; and the help available to you if only you call for it.

Your challenges were never meant to be taken on in solitude. Though often times of solitude bring you the inner awareness to better understand yourself and others. The challenges that present themselves to you can be seen in many ways and it is up to you to choose how you view them.

Challenges are opportunities, for growth and self-discovery, not only for your own personal growth, but for the growth of the All. Dear One, you are an extension of the Divine Source of All That Is. And it is through your learning that the All, the Source, also experiences self-discovery and growth. It may seem outrageous to some to consider this concept, but realize that nothing that exists is stagnant. And that includes the One, the Source of All That Is.

If you did not have reasons for personal reflection and growth, there would be no need for you to have embodied on this physical plane. The Mystery Schools present themselves to many in different planes of existence, in different ways of being. And here upon this physical plane you are able to get a taste of the power of pure love and connection.

There are many levels of learning. And this physical plane is only one of countless forms of existence which allow the expansion of the Universal Being. You are a part of the All. We have told you this many times. And we understand that the very nature of physical embodiment makes it difficult to accept this connection which you have with the All of Existence.

Your scientists have proven the existence of energy. You have felt it yourself and many have understood the exchange of energies which can help or hinder another. Know that the true nature of this plane is one of goodness and love. How can it be anything else when created by the Divine Source?

What this plane is experiencing at this point in time is the result of your free will. For you have been given this in order to test the waters, just as a babe tests her abilities as she grows more confident each day. Whatever occurs here upon this plane is valuable for the collective consciousness. And there are many from other realms observing how you navigate this challenging form of existence.

Know that all are cheering you on and are willing to help and guide you forward to overcome the feelings of inadequacy, powerlessness and fear. Contemplating your life here prior to embodiment, many thought it would be an easy task. But the human condition has many alluring features which can lead you astray from your original conceptions of physical life. The web of connection between all of existence is very complex and unexplainable in your ways of speaking. But understand that many are here to be catalysts for change, to urge you to take actions you may not have taken without these souls here to challenge your way of being.

It is easy to become complacent in your life because of many of the beliefs which you hold about life and what is necessary for successful living. Many souls have chosen to experience severe challenges to encourage you to act with compassion and love. Honor those souls who came into being knowing that they would suffer for the purpose of the greatest good. And remember that this physical existence is but a single breath in an eternal life of being and learning and loving.

Dear One, do not doubt yourself or what you are capable of accomplishing here upon this physical plane. Many are led to ‘greatness’ or leadership. But a simple life lived with love and faith and service is also a life of greatness. Cease your judgment of others, no matter what they do. Instead, learn from them. Ask yourself, ’What can I learn from this person and how they live their life?’

For each and every one of you has something to teach another, be it how to live or how not to live. Embrace the impermanence of this physical existence while understanding that you make a difference with every breath that you take. For you, Dear One, are holy. All of life, of creation, is sacred. No longer walk in fear. Follow your inner guidance and feel the joy of your existence here upon this physical plane.

Engage all of your senses

As you experience your life here.

Cease judgment

And seek knowledge

From all who cross your path.

And know that you are a teacher yourself

With every breath that you take.

You are loved and admired beyond measure

For the decision to be here upon this plane.

Dear, dear One With All of Thee.

Much gratitude to thee.
