Surrender

Do not fight against the current.

Instead, allow it to take you where you need to go

The destination may surprise you

And be more glorious than you ever imagined.

Dear One, the inclination is to work towards the outcome which you think is necessary, right and appropriate. However, you do not see your life from the higher perspective as we do. You are limited by the human mind, which does not know all the wondrous possibilities available to you. Can you surrender and trust that your path is on a trajectory to greatness; to coming into your power, which continues to lie dormant in so many still, upon this physical plane?

The trials, the frustrations, the disappointments that occur in your life may seem to keep you from moving forward in the fashion you feel is best for you. When in fact, it is these challenges that steer you on your path to greatness. Reflection upon what happens, forgiveness and blessings for all involved provides opportunities for the unlimited love within you to emerge, even in the most trying of times.

Can you be that loving individual in times of stress? It is much easier to be calm and gentle when life appears to be unfolding in a most positive and uneventful way. But what do you learn during these times of easy living? The true lessons come when you are challenged by unanticipated events, which might affect your planned timeline for your day, your week, your lifetime. Are you able to be as calm and forgiving during stressful times? The answer is that yes, you can. But it takes reflection and practice.

Dear One, instead of fighting with such emotion to have your life evolve in a certain fashion, can you instead move through these challenging times with a calmer demeanor? Can you send love out into the world, send blessings to all and continue to treat all with respect and kindness, rather than with anger and frustration? Your world does not need more fear and anger. It yearns for more loving kindness and gentleness.

It begins with you and how you move through your immediate world. For just as the stone thrown into a body of water creates concentric circles, so too, does your internal emotional state send out waves of energy from your core. Can you send out love instead of anger? Can you send out blessings for all; the victims, the perpetrators and the observers? All would be served by receiving loving energy instead of fear and anger. This includes the observers who try to make sense of a world exhibiting such fear at this time.

Everyone here upon this plane was created in love and has unlimited love within them. Everyone. And everyone is affected by their environment, be it one of fear or one of love. Can you be the one to radiate love, trust and faith in humankind? It begins with you, in how you view those personal challenges present in your life. Can you step back and surrender to these challenges, with the faith that all will unfold in the most perfect way?

As you learn to calm those emotions of frustration and anger, to acknowledge them, bless them and then release them in love, you will begin to do this in a broader sense, with others in your world. Dear One, you are capable of so much more than you realize. Start now, at this very moment. Understand that those internal feelings of fear, when transmuted to love, will provide opportunities for change in your life, wondrous change that will affect others.

Begin today. Release those grudges, those judgments, those fears. Replace them instead with forgiveness and loving kindness, towards yourself and others. Create an environment of love, rather than one of fear and anger. You can still promote change in a loving manner. For there is much power in love, more so than in fear. It begins with you, Dear One.

Sit, reflect and bless, yourself and others. Send out waves of loving kindness rather than fear or anger. Understand that the current of life is taking you exactly where you need to go in order to reach your greatest heights. Allow the currents to steer you forward and instead of complaining, be still and observe how you are reacting. Choose to come from your heart and have faith that all is well.

Choose peace. Breathe peace in and out with every breath.

Choose love. Breathe love in and out with every breath.

What happens next may surprise you, Dear One.

Allow the power within to emerge in its gentlest way.

You are One with the Source of All That Is; a reservoir of pure light and love.

Shine, love and change the world.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Be At Peace

be at peace

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.

All is Well

Can you trust these words?

Despite all that you see around you

Can you trust that all is well

And that your life is unfolding exactly as it should?

Dear One, it can be difficult for you to view your life and the world around you and still accept the words that we say to you. All is well. For you see strife, inequality, suffering, greed and many other challenging components of the human condition occurring around you. Can you trust enough to believe that all is well?

It depends on the perspective that you take as you walk through your world. You can view the happenings as terrible injustices, or you can see opportunities for growth. For each occurrence of a perceived negative condition is an opportunity for someone to step up and make a difference; to change their way of walking through this world.

Each occurrence can be an impetus for someone to make a conscious choice to contribute loving kindness to this world; to counteract the greed and suffering. If the world in which you lived was without these challenges, what would the purpose be for existing here upon this physical plane?

You, Dear One, are a participant in a world that is inter-connected with all of creation. And yet, by perceiving this world only through your human senses, you are failing to see all that is occurring on an energetic level. We have told you before that you are energetic beings, temporarily embodying these physical forms for the purpose of your own personal growth.

The choice is yours, whether or not you will participate and share the gifts you have been given, in order to raise the vibration of this physical plane; or to sit back, criticize and judge what is occurring without getting involved. This is your choice.

You have been given the perfect form, placed in the perfect location, and given the most perfect gift to use in your life to help others. You have the power to change your world, if only by spending moments each day sending loving energy out to those around you.

Can you walk through this world without judgment of how others live their lives? Can you instead treat all of creation with respect and gratitude for all that they offer you? Yes, even if they are challenges that force you to action you did not want to take. You are ever powerful. You are filled with love. Begin by being kind to yourself and trusting that you have everything that you need to move forward in the most perfect way.

Do not become dismayed by your perception of lack in your personal life. It is so easy to focus on that which you feel you do not have, rather than realizing all that has been provided for you. It might be as simple as a spot of shade on a hot and sunny day or a place to rest your body after a hard day’s work.

Dear One, open your eyes and see what you have in your life, which serves you daily. Know that whatever comes your way, you will survive; perhaps not with the outcome you intended, but certainly with the personal growth needed to move you forward.

Trust that your unseen companions are but a breath away; ask for help when you need it and they will provide it. Reflect on all the time spent worrying about that which never occurred. Know that your human mind cannot fathom all the possible outcomes to a situation, that many of the outcomes are better than you could ever have imagined.

Be patient with yourself and with others. Remember that you all are on this journey together; each of you has specific lessons you chose to learn this lifetime. Understand that synchronicities are but an avenue to get you to where you need to be next. Perfectly situated for a perfect outcome.

Dear One, no matter what occurs to you in this lifetime, please know that you are loved and are never abandoned. We have told you before that it is impossible for you to be alone, even though your physical senses may not be able to perceive this truth.

You are a part of an eternal web of connection, always linked to the Source and never alone.

Dear One, trust that all is well, even though it may not appear that way at this very moment.

Trust that the cogs in the wheel of life are constantly moving you forward.

Choose to move forward with grace, with love and with kindness.

For like attracts like and you will be the recipient of that which you share with others.

 

You are a Dear One, precious to us, held close to our hearts.

You are one with the Source, at all times, at ALL times.

And truly, All Is Well with You.

All is well.

How Do You See the World?

Can you open up your heart

And see others as extensions of yourself,

All on a similar journey

Searching for love, for purpose, for inner peace?

Are you not One with All?

Dear One, do not forget that you are connected to all of existence and that all of existence came from the same loving Source. Awakening to the truth of who you really are occurs at different times for everyone. Rather than see others as your adversaries, can you see them as fellow travelers on a path back to wholeness; back into the arms of the Source?

How can you judge others when you do not truly know the purpose of their lives, the lessons they came here to learn, and the struggles they have encountered along the way? Instead, can you send them love from your heart and teach them how to love by example? Can you model the behavior you wish to see in others?

You still do not realize the power of love, the power of blessing the world and focusing the light upon the darkest corners of your world. We ache for you when we see how you struggle, and yet cannot help you unless you ask us, for you have the gift of free will. Like loving parents watching their babes learn how to navigate their new worlds, so do we lovingly watch over you every moment of your day.

Dear One, each of you has gifts to share with others. Realizing what those gifts are is the first step. Sharing those gifts with others to help them is the next step. And understanding that you are perfectly placed, to share with those who need your gifts the most. Your actions, no matter how insignificant you feel they are, become powerful tools in affecting the lives of others.

Open up your hearts to all and understand that if you seek guidance or help, it is only a breath away. But also realize that you, yes, you, are the vehicle of help or guidance for another who needs exactly the help that you can offer. Remember that you, in your human mind, cannot fathom the workings of the Universe. This is by design, for the lessons would not be as powerful if you could.

You, Dear One, are the vehicle for change here upon this physical plane. But remember that your physical senses cannot show you all that is occurring around you. For there is much more to existence than what these physical senses can ‘see’. The time is now for you to begin to trust your intuition, to open your mind to other forms of communication between each other and between the worlds.

It begins with you and the way you move through your day. It begins with what kind of energy you extend out to others. Do you act towards another or do your re-act? Can you begin to calm down those human emotions and come from your heart in all that you do? This does not mean that you become involved in another’s drama. Indeed, it is best if you do not, and instead, send them loving support from the sidelines.

Your best practice is to keep your own vibrations high and not allow those of others to bring yours down. For just as this can happen, so can your higher, positive vibrations affect others and hold them up. It works both ways.

Choose peace, Dear One. Go within and feel the quiet that exists there as you connect with your Source. Leave the external chaos if only for a few moments each day. This is how you replenish and keep moving forward, being the loving entity that you truly are.

You, Dear One, are a gift to this world. Do not doubt that. Share this gift and see the gift of others as well. For each of you has a role to play in the forward movement of this world. Trust your intuition and those synchronicities in your life. Cease the worry, and trust, in yourself and in your connections with the unseen world.

As you continue to grow, you will begin to understand more how powerful you are and how you have that oasis of peace within you at all times. A place of respite and regeneration.

Love as you have never loved before.

It is your true nature.

Dear One with All of Thee.

 

Choose Peace

choose peace

You have a choice in how you live each day.

You have a choice in the thoughts you choose to harbor,

The feelings you choose to hold onto.

The choice is always yours

Because you have free will.

Choose peace.

Dear One, life in the physical world is an adventure, but also a challenge. With this existence you have many choices to make, much freedom in how you move through your day. And yet, this human condition, with its illusion of separateness and plethora of emotions, can present a challenge to remembering your divine nature.

Can you open your eyes to the opportunities, the beauty, the joy and the love which surrounds you every moment of the day? There is beauty everywhere. Even in the most dire of situations, the Mother might send you a songbird or a ray of sunshine to pierce the darkness you feel enveloping you.

You are master over your mind, not servant to it. You have the power to cease those thoughts that invite you into despair and frustration. You have the power to raise your vibrations to those of peace and gratitude. Much of how you live your life falls into a pattern, a habit, which can be broken.

Choose peace. When you feel those emotions of lower vibration begin to well up within you, choose peace instead. You are not alone in this. There are many of you who experience the same challenges in changing their perceptions of their world; from a world filled with despair to one of joy. But it is possible to do this with support, from the unseen world and from others who understand that which you are experiencing.

We say to you again, you have the power to change your world. It begins with changing your perspective, with loving yourself and believing in yourself and your capacity for love and forgiveness. You are a Divine Being, existing in a physical world filled with emotional responses. And the emotions you feel are a guide to where you are on your spiritual path.

Can you love unconditionally, yourself and others? Can you forgive yourself and others, rather than holding onto old hurts? Can you see the divine within all of creation, from the smallest of creatures to, yes, your greatest adversaries? Can you focus on the beauty in your life rather than the perceived darkness?

This is not to say that you turn a blind eye to suffering, for suffering is a part of this journey of personal growth. But suffering can be diminished by how you see your world. Can you see the opportunities, the possibilities, and trust the unfolding of your life with faith that all is as it should be?

Challenges occur every day. The question is how you respond to these challenges. Do you worry and fret, or do you choose peace, with the understanding that all will be well? Do you continue to worry about that which has not occurred? The truth is that outcomes can be far grander than you can even imagine.

Choose peace, when those worrisome thoughts try to lodge within your mind. Remember that you are master over your mind. Choose peace, and silence the repetitive thoughts which bring your vibrations down. Tell your mind that instead, you choose peace. And seek help if you need support. You are not alone.

Choose wisely those with whom you spend your time. For as the vibrational changes continue to occur, you may become more sensitive to lower energies put out by others. Consider quiet time to replenish your spirits. Cease exposure to drama when possible. Observe, but do not engage in drama created by others. Send love and find compassion for others, and for yourself, as you move forward on this path.

Choose peace.

Love, as you have never loved before, as your capacity for this is infinite.

Focus on the beauty, the joy, that is present in your life.

Cease the worry about that which has not occurred

And trust that all is unfolding as it should.

The possibilities for growth exist in every challenge that comes your way.

And as you continue to grow, you will be able to find gratitude for those opportunities.

But for now, know that you have someone by your side at all times.

At ALL times.

Choose peace, Dear One.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Do Not Doubt Yourself

doubt

Jiwoon Pak Moonset (2015) http://vjeranski.tumblr.com/

You have all the strength and resolve you need

To walk in this world with your head held high

With kindness and compassion for others

And to connect with those on your path

Who are there to move you forward this day.

Dear One, do not doubt that you are in the right place, at the right time, to share or receive the knowledge to be exchanged in this very instant. You are connected to the stream of consciousness, which flows through all of creation and allows forward movement, as lives intertwine. This is the energetic connection that permeates the seen and the unseen worlds, bringing them together in ways you cannot even fathom at this time.

You place such importance on this world which you see and interact with using your physical body. And yet, the unseen world is far greater in expanse and in how it affects your life. It is from these connective ethers that you receive the knowledge and gentle push, to move forward in a certain way. And it is from these unseen forces that you draw your strength, as you are surrounded by loving beings, every moment of your day.

You were created by the Divine and so have a permanent connection with the Divine. You, in fact, carry the Divine within you, as it is a part of your make-up. This part of you is from where all answers come. Your physical mind does indeed help navigate your way through this physical world. It may allow you to make scientific discoveries which make your physical life easier. However, it is your heart which helps you to use those discoveries in a manner that supports all of existence. It helps you to use these scientific discoveries with loving kindness, for the highest good of all.

Remember that you are an integral part of this stream of consciousness, as both a recipient and a contributor. You have been given unique gifts for this journey, which in combination with proper physical placement, will allow you to contribute to the All. Do not doubt this. For you must look broader, farther, than your immediate life, in order to understand the connection between all things.

Every interaction has an effect on the collective consciousness. It either contributes to the raising or the lowering of the energetic vibration of this world and beyond. This Universe is expanding and gently pulling you along in this process. Chaotic feelings and interactions may be due to the inexperience of being in these higher vibrations that are moving across this physical plane. It takes time to adjust to these changes and they are being made in the gentlest way possible.

Do not doubt yourself, for you will survive this day, this life, and continue on your personal journey, even beyond this physical existence. You are made of energy, as is the entirety of being. And energy is in constant flux, moving and flowing, as it interacts with its surroundings.

Dear One, you are a child of the Universe, one who is loved and gently cared for, as you make your progress on your individual path. Every day, you are offered the opportunity to learn or to teach a lesson. Your teachers can be any and all of those you encounter during your day, including Mother Nature, who is here to nurture you and provide for your physical body.

Do not doubt yourself, for judgment comes only from you. We offer you gratitude and love, and give you support when you call upon Us for help. Do not doubt yourself, and remember you are a Divine being. Do not doubt yourself, even in those darkest moments; for that is when the light within you will show you the way forward, out of that darkness, back into the joy of being.

Honor yourself and others.

Respect Mother Nature and all of her creatures.

And remember to dance to that Universal song which lives within you.

It plays continuously for you, offering you a joyful respite from your daily stresses.

Be of joy. Be at peace and know that love surrounds you always.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Let Your Heart Lead You

let your heart lead you

s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com

Can you open your heart

And allow its wisdom to flow?

It is where your connection to Source lies

Follow where it leads you

And walk in tandem with the Divine.

Dear One, can you turn off that mind of yours and allow your heart to speak in its gentle voice, to lead you forward? It does not shout, it does not judge, it does not cause self-doubt. Your heart speaks softly, in a whisper, in those quiet moments when you take a breath, a pause from your hectic life.

Enter the silence and allow it to lead you forward with grace and with love. Do not listen to the loud and boisterous, for often they are incited by Ego, who continues to see separation between all. Listen instead to the calming quiet space ever present in your day. It is just a breath away from the outer chaos that surrounds so many here upon this plane.

Your heart has much wisdom to share if you listen. It carries a torch of love for you to hold high as you take your next step, your next breath; as you choose how you will move through your day. That flame is your flame, your signature glow, that shines eternal, yes, even amidst times of doubt and uncertainty. It is your connection with the Divine. The spark of love, your Essence, created by the Divine, lives within your heart.

Your mind is a tool to help you to move through this world. It gives you the physical answers to your curiosity about this physical world. But listening to it alone will lead you astray. It may lead you to doors that can only be opened with the keys of your heart, in order to discover the truth of existence. When you reach an impasse, seek the answers from your heart, not your mind.

For the workings of your mind can only take you so far. To continue on your path, you require the wisdom which sits in your heart. How often have you spun your wheels, thinking and re-thinking about an incident or a personal challenge? By looking into your heart you will see where the next step lies. Perhaps self-forgiveness is required rather than remembrance of what you see as a ‘wrong’ action.

The joy you seek is within your heart, not your mind. The mind allows you to move through this world as a functioning human vessel. But your heart allows you to feel the joy of this physical human existence. Allow yourself to feel that joy of being with a loved one, of being in a place of beauty and peace. Allow that joy to permeate throughout your entire physical frame.

You were meant to live a life of joy even as you learned the lessons you came here to learn. Do not allow your mind to entrap you in the past or in the future. Instead, allow your heart to help you feel the joy of this very moment of existence. For in this very moment you are complete, you are loved and you are a Divine being.

Drop the weight of shame, of regret or worry. Give it to Us to incinerate in the flame of love. You no longer need this weight, as it is your time to shine, to soar and to share the joy of existence with the seen and the unseen world around you.

For We are here always, whether or not you see Us, We are here. And the best way to connect is through your heart. Allow it to open, even if those hinges are covered with rust, let Us join you in this sacred journey back to the Source.

Dear One, you are sacred.

You are a Divine being.

And you are loved unconditionally.

Allow Us to show you how to be your authentic self.

The One We know intimately and completely.

We will show you how to love if you have forgotten.

It begins with you. Take that step forward and begin to see who you truly are.

Dear One With All of Thee.
