Timing

timing

Salvador Dalí. The Persistence of Memory. 

Release control of your perception of time

For it only holds you back

Rather than moving your forward.

Embrace synchronicity instead

And your connection to all things.

Dear One, as you continue to believe in the progression of time and try to control what is to occur, when and how, you only limit yourself and the infinite possibilities. Instead can you allow your life to unfold in the manner that best serves you and the lessons you came here to learn.

Indeed, you can have aspirations and dreams and we encourage you to do so. But do not attempt to control what happens and when it happens.  Dream your dream, manifest it by experiencing how it would be with all of your physical senses. How would it taste, smell, sound, look and feel? Spend a moment experiencing it with all of your senses. Then send it off into the ethers with gratitude for what it will bring you when it arrives.

Then continue to live your life, allowing synchronicity and the web of connection to move you towards this dream of yours. It is not about control. It is about trust and faith. Trust that all is well with you and that your life is unfolding exactly as it should. Faith in yourself and in your intuition, which will help guide you forward. Both of these come from your heart, not from your mind.

Imagine the web of connection and how there is a string of energy connecting you to all things in this world and beyond. What you do, think, or say affects all of creation as the energetic impulses created by you move down these strings of connection. In the same way, energetic pulses come towards you from all of your surroundings, not only from those in a human body.

If there is discord in one area, calming corrective energies can and are sent to the affected area. And this is done with Divine timing. For understand, that there are lessons to be learned by all involved, be you a sender or a recipient. The ebb and flow of energies is perfectly timed, if you trust, if you allow and if you cease your attempts to control the outcome.

Rather than fight so hard to have an event occur exactly as you desire it to occur, can you instead, release control and just allow. You have placed your order from the menu. Now allow it to manifest in the most perfect way.

The energies are changing here upon this plane, affected by celestial occurrences as well as by human interactions. In order to better understand this concept, you will need to think more globally and universally, rather than seeing just your immediate surroundings. As you begin to expand your thinking, you will begin to have a better sense of the energetic dance with occurs across all of creation.

There is a flow, a rhythm to this dance that affects you all. There is so much occurring in the unseen world around you and it begins with the connection you have with all things. Can you bless your connection and give gratitude for the abundance of loving energy which surrounds you?

You are not alone on this journey, you are not alone in this life you live. Quite the opposite, you are one with all. If you can begin to accept this concept, you may be better able to understand how Divine timing includes events across all of creation. This is where synchronicity comes into play. This is why trusting your intuition will help you learn the dance of existence across all realms.

All of creation exists within and around you, for you are but a piece of a Divine mosaic moving in rhythm with the universal song of creation. You have an important part to play in this symphony of love. Never doubt that. You have come with a unique gift to offer as you learn the dance of love.

Dear One, there is no need for control, just for trust. Would your life not be much easier if you accepted your integral part in the ebb and flow of creation, with no need to rush or to control.

Release and let go of control

Embrace your connection with all of infinity.

And dance in rhythm with the universal song.

Allow your life to unfold in its most perfect way.

With Divine timing

 And the love of the Universe surrounding you.

Dear One With All of Thee.

This Moment in Time

this moment in time

Chakra Heart Primalpainter.com

How do you feel at this very moment?

Are you happy, sad, neutral?

Can you give attention to what you are feeling

At this very moment in time?

Can you bless that feeling with the knowledge

That it will soon change

To another emotion, another feeling,

As you move through this day.

Dear One, there is a duality here upon this plane, purposefully designed to give you the optimal environment for growth. The human body is filled with emotion, some described as positive while other emotions are deemed negative. But do they all not have the same purpose in your life; to move you forward on your path?

Even the greatest teachers of your time have felt a plethora of emotion, ranging from ecstasy to despair. Your life is a kaleidoscope of emotions, each with a different frequency of vibration. And indeed, if you could see the colors emitted you would see a rainbow of colors swirling around you. For some of these emotions bring with them a chaotic energy which can cause you to be out of balance.

What to do? Accept what it is that you are feeling. Pause and take note of it and allow it to work through your body. Breathe as calmly as you are able and ask it why it is here with you at this moment in time. Give gratitude for the message that it brings to you, for it does have a purpose for being present at this time.

If it is an emotion that has been suppressed for a long time, perhaps now is the time to move forward and allow it to emerge, providing the release needed for you to continue on your path. You have grown since the event that caused that emotion and may now have the strength to review and release what has been buried for so long.

If it has been a constant companion for you, perhaps it is now time to seek help. Time to allow yourself to heal, physically or emotionally, for your entire being is affected by the vibration caused by what you are feeling.

If there is celebration to be experienced, then do so with full abandon and honor the lightness that surrounds you. Share it with others and give gratitude for the joy you feel at this moment.

Dear One, rather than trying to suppress any emotion, instead sit with it and try to see what it is telling you. It may be as simple as the need to feed your physical body. It may be telling you that it is time to get involved to help change the world, in any way you can help. Or it may be telling you that your body needs rest. You have done enough for this day.

Your intuition will help you as you move through these different states of mind. But in order for it to do so, it is necessary for you to acknowledge how it is that you are feeling. If you are sensitive to the energies of others around you, find a quiet space to replenish and ground yourself. Mother Nature will gladly show you relief. You are loved, Dear One, and have an abundance of help waiting for you to ask for assistance.

Emotions are a driving force to help you move forward on your path. Honor them for how they can teach you. Life here upon this plane can easily encourage you to over-commit, to ignore what your intuition is trying to tell you or to just push back that what is trying to help you move forward.

This moment is time is different from the previous moment and from the next moment to occur. For there is always the potential for change, acceptance, forgiveness and gratitude. Every one who is embodied at this time has struggled with raw emotion. And for those who are sensitive, you feel the emotions of others as well as your own.

Acknowledge and respond to what you are feeling. What is needed may be as simple as taking a breath and walking in nature. Or it may require taking action over a longer time period, for yourself or for others.

There is purpose in what you feel

It is a gift for you

To better understand yourself

And where you are on your path.

Have enough compassion for yourself,

To listen to what you are being told.

And always know that there is help

Just a breath away.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Out with the Old

pruning feb 2018

It’s that time of year when many of us go through our closets in order to weed out all the things we no longer use. Clearing the air, making room for new things, perhaps just allowing ourselves to feel lighter and less burdened. After all, spring is around the corner and with it comes new growth and the promise of lighter days and endless possibilities.

This is the time of year that I am heavy into pruning my blueberry bushes. I started the last week of January and will be out there at least till mid-March trying to get rid of the old canes. It’s not that difficult a concept to prune. Get rid of the canes that are too tall or too close to the ground. The pickers can’t reach the blueberries on the tall canes and blueberries growing too close to the ground will affect weed control. But most of all, the canes should not overlap causing damage as they rub each other. They also need room in the center of the bush for air to circulate. They need to breath just like us.

People ask me how do I know when I’ve pruned enough. My standard reply is ‘When I hear the bushes say Ah!’ I know it sounds crazy, but I noticed it when I took a blueberry pruning class. After the instructor showed us how to prune, I could feel those bushes sigh with the new freedom of movement. I asked a few of the other students if they could feel the difference in the bushes and they just looked at me like I was crazy. What can I say? This is how I move through life, feeling empathy not only towards people but also towards other sentient beings. Because I do believe my blueberry bushes can feel.

When friends come to visit, they tell me that the bushes greet them as they come up the driveway. My response is, ‘Of course they do, they have had good home training’. And when I need a hug, I just walk out into that blueberry patch and always feel so much better.

It’s like a time warp in there. You get lost and think you’ve been out there for just an hour and realize its been at least three hours. It’s addicting. Even when we pick, it’s difficult to come in because you just have to get that one last ripe berry, or those few ripe berries over there. I have to tell my pickers that they are now ‘off the clock’ to get them to come in some mornings.

This is hard work. It’s time consuming and tiring and this time of year I usually spend my evenings on the couch with a heating pad on my back. But at the same time, it is a joy for me. Being out there helps me clear my head. I’ve been struggling lately with all that I have on my plate and how to prioritize; questioning if I have made the right decisions or if I need to make some changes. I’ve been stalling on doing some things I feel I need to do and have been feeling guilty about it.

My main goal right now is to prune as many bushes as I can before the sap begins to flow. Yet, I’ve realized that pruning is helping me to work through my stuff. I’m helping those bushes by clearing out the old canes and they are helping me by providing me a nurturing space to figure out my life. It’s the connection, the back and forth, something I’ve written about often in this blog.

I cannot tell you how lucky I feel to be a blueberry farmer. I tend those bushes with love and all my clients rave about how good the berries taste. My friends tell me that I am not only spreading love in my writing, but also through the blueberries, and I can see the truth in that.

All aspects of our lives are connected in some way. And I know that if I move through these other parts of my life one step at a time, as I do when I prune the bushes, then I’ll be okay. If I can move through the other parts of my life with the same tenderness I feel for those bushes, then I’m in balance.

I never know what each season will bring. Drought or a late frost could affect the yield and I just have to trust that all will be well. Because I can’t control the weather. I can only send loving energy and gratitude to those bushes for coming back to me every year. I tell them often, no matter what the yield is, I will always love them and be grateful for what they have given me. And they haven’t let me down yet.

The blueberries are teaching me to approach the other aspects of my life as I approach farming. The truth is that there is only so much I can control and sometimes I just have to trust my intuition and wait. Wait until I feel the time is right, rather than judging myself for not doing enough or for not doing it sooner. Life has a flow. It has a season, just like in nature. And sometimes we just have to allow it to bloom in its own time.  Thank you, my dear blueberry bushes, for sharing your wisdom with me once again.

New Birth

 

The hesitation you feel

The doubt, the fear

All are a part of the labor

That is necessary for the new birth

In your life, in your world.

Dear One, you are in the process of new birth for yourself, for your world and for the Universe. And with this new birth comes the preamble of preparation, much of which is new territory for many of you. What is coming, how do I prepare, what should I expect, will I be ready? All of these are questions that precede a major change in your life. And this will be a major change.

There is nothing to fear, there is no preparation necessary. For indeed, you have been preparing for this event for many years, for many lifetimes. And there is a part of you which is ecstatic that the birth is almost here. Do not fight it, for it is already in motion. Instead, breathe through it and allow it to emerge in all of its glory, with all of its potential.

You have made this birth possible with your life, with the choices made by you and by many others across realms. This is the moment that many have been anticipating for eons. And you are ready. You are prepared, despite your doubts about your own strength and connection. You will shine beyond anything ever experienced before. You have been the catalyst. You have been the womb. And you, Dear One, will reap the benefits from this wondrous event.

When you feel restless, doubtful or fearful, just remember that you have loving support at all times. For we believe in you much more than you believe in yourself. Can you cease creating the expectations that can be overwhelming while at the same time can be very limiting? For those expectations are created with the human mind. And the human mind is not able to expand enough to see the potential.

Your human mind, while essential for moving through this physical world, does not have the capacity to see outside of this physical realm. And the movement, the growth, the changes come from outside this arena. And what does the human mind do with that which it does not know? It becomes fearful, doubtful and judgmental. Does this not happen with cultures or lands, people who are foreign to you?

Once again, we ask you to come from your heart. The new birth that is ready to emerge will come easier with the help of loving kindness. The labor will be shortened with lightness of being, created with song, laughter and love. Allow the grace of your higher self to assist as you allow it to guide you through your day.

Have no expectations, for it will be more wondrous than you can imagine. Have no doubts that you are ready and able to move forward in a loving way. Have no fear of failure, for that is not possible. You have already done much more than expected and if you were to come home today, you would have done enough. But stay, Dear One, and enjoy the bounty of your labors. You have done so much, even though your human judgment continues to question your progress. You have done so much already.

Dear One, treat yourself as kindly as you would others. For without self-love, it is not possible to love others. You are a child of the Universe, cradled in the arms of infinity and loved with the heart of the All That Is.

You are ready.

Gently allow it to emerge.

A new way of being for you

And for others.

Feel the connection it brings

To all of creation.

Birthed by you

Birthed for you

And for the All That Is.

 

The Leap of Faith

leap of faith

Galaxypicture .com

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.
