Attunement

#emmatheharpist

Understand the connection

Between all of existence.

And how your awareness

Of this connection

Can change your perspective

Of your world

And beyond.

Dear One, you would feel much more peace within if you could accept the connection of all things. There is no YOU and ME. There is only an US, sharing a co-existence and a co-creation with the All.  You play a part in all that happens in your world and beyond. Reclaim your power.

Change begins with you. And you have a choice to contribute to the chaos or to the calm, to the fear or to the love. It begins with becoming more attuned to the natural world and to the cycles which exist across the Universe.

Consider the strongest of winds which blow across your lands. They can create chaos and destruction. But there is also a clearing of the air, a refreshing of the atmosphere surrounding you. Chaos always precedes change. Watch the Mother and her cycles and you will observe this occurring time and time again.

So too, with you and your human existence. Often before a great leap forward there is a time of unrest. Great fires create room for new growth in nature. And periods prior to new growth for you often place you in a period of unease. The key is how you respond to these changes.

Attuning yourself to the ways of the Universe with times of stillness and reflection will assist you in moving forward with love and not fear. You are a child of the Universe, loved unconditionally, and always encouraged to take that next leap forward without fear. Trust that you are ready, you are capable and that you have the power to make a most wondrous change in your life, in your world. 

It begins with you. It has always begun with you. Start with connecting to the rhythm of the All during times of stillness. Sway to the tempo of the Universe in its most beautiful song of love and change. Do not doubt that this is possible. You are One with the All, with the Source of All Creation.

The more of you who awaken to this personal power, the greater the change, the gentler the change, the more rapid the change. The connection is there. You only need to remember how to walk in synchrony and attunement.

Attunement will allow you to work with the flow of the Universe rather than straining to go in another direction. Consider if all move forward in unison, in the same direction, how powerful the movement will become.

If you know not what to do, then sit in stillness and breathe. Put your hand on your heart center and allow your breath to match the breath of the Source. You know how to do this, Dear One. You have just forgotten. Trust that you are being guided forward every moment of every day.

Rather than pull away, sit, trust, and follow the guidance that will be there for you. Do not expect your mind to guide you. For the guidance comes from your heart. Trust what you feel as you shut down that mind and allow your heart to lead you forward.

The human mind is very helpful in moving through this physical existence. But the balance is askew and as the energies of the Universe begin to shift, more attention to your heart is required. Do not forget that you are more than a physical form living in a physical world. And that other part of you is ready to reawaken and sing in harmony with the Universal song.

A minor adjustment each day through brief periods of stillness will help you move forward in love. When you feel that judgment or fear rising in your belly, stop. Take a few deep cleansing breaths and reconnect with the loving being, with that part of you which resides within your heart.

You are ready.

The time is now

For you to walk in love

And only love.

Help awaits you.

You only need to call

Dearest One With All of Thee.

 

Why?

why

WHY?

A question asked often

Which never seems

To receive an adequate reply.

Why indeed?

Dear One, the human condition has many asking this question about all aspects of life. Why am I here? Why has this happened? Why does this person act in this manner? Why, why, why? There is a constant need to understand, to analyze, in order to be at peace with life.

What is lacking so often when this question is asked is faith. Faith that all is unfolding exactly as it was meant to be. And the realization that you do not always need to understand to move forward and live your life.

How often have you chosen to do something, or take a path because that is where your intuition has led you? How often have you put your trust in your connection to the All That Is and moved forward without knowing where it would take you? How often have you truly believed that there is a larger picture that you cannot see from your vantage point which might explain what is occurring at this moment?

The human condition has so much to offer each and every one of you and being co-creator with the All is one gift. Being the brushstroke on a massive canvas, the creation of life, allowing yourself to be led without knowing the reason or the outcome.

This is a difficult concept for many since your mind is so active and eager to be in complete control of what occurs and what the end result will be. This mind was developed for you to survive through an iterative process. One experience adds on to what was learned from the previous one and so forth as you continue to grow during your physical life.

But as this mind of yours has developed, for many it has overshadowed the connection to your higher self, the intuition which can also guide you. The mind thinks it has all the answers and you do not listen to those silent urges that gently guide you forward.

All of you have experienced those ‘red flags’ which tried to steer you away from a path you chose to take. And after the lesson was experienced, upon reflection, you often realized that you declined to listen to what your ‘gut’ told you. The lesson was learned, but it may have been a gentler lesson had you listened to your intuition.

Instead of spending so much time and energy trying to understand the WHY, can you begin to trust that most often it is unnecessary for you to know this. The Ego, of course, wants to be in control and wants this knowledge. But in trying to understand the reason behind a situation, you may allow yourself to be led towards judgment of another or yourself. You may lapse in moving forward with compassion or love.

The answer to WHY may never be revealed to you while you exist in physical form. After you return to your natural state and do a life review, all will become clearer to you. But the current challenge for you is to cease the need to understand and continue to live a life of love and compassion. Difficult to do with an over-active mind that questions everything.

This is why a practice of quiet meditation is so helpful to you. Learning to quiet that active mind will allow you to trust the process and not worry about the outcome. It will help you to hone your intuition so that you will better hear that quiet inner voice as it guides you forward.

Building on that trust and moving forward in faith will show you where to take your next step even if you do not understand the reason why. Accepting your connection with the Divine with every breath that you take can help you mute the chatter in your mind and follow the guidance from your heart.

Dear One, trust that you are exactly where you need to be in this moment of time. And if you feel that change is required, find quiet time to sit and listen to your intuition for your next move forward. Remember that the web of connection allows for all the pieces to be in place for your next step. And it may not be in the time frame you choose or think is best. For you cannot see the whole picture and how all is connected.

Learn to trust

Yourself and your intuition,

Your connection,

And the unfolding of your life.

The answers come from the silence within

And not from that over-active mind.

You are loved unconditionally,

Watched over and gently guided forward

Every moment of your day.

Have faith in that.

Dear One With All of Thee.

The Breath of the Divine

The air you breathe

Is the breath of the Divine.

Merging with your own divinity

With every inhalation.

One with the Divine

One with all of creation.

Dear One, when you feel alone and disconnected, just breathe. Close your eyes, inhale the breath of the Divine, and feel it merge with every cell of your body. Allow it to awaken your own divinity, that flame of love, which burns so brightly deep within your being.

Feel that spark of love grow stronger with each breath as your own divinity merges with that of the Divine. Continue to breathe as the Divinity without mixes with the Divinity within to the point where there is no separation. A coming home, as your sense of your physical body fades and all that remains is the breath that connects you with all of life, with all of creation. Breathe and connect and remember who you really are, One With All of Thee.

This physical plane creates the illusion of separateness, the physical body seeming to contain only one person, you. When in fact, with every breath that you take during the day, you are exchanging the breath of the Divine, your breath, with all of creation.

The air you breathe is that same air breathed by nature, by the great masters, by all who ever existed and continue to exist here upon this physical plane. It is your breath which connects you. Do not accept the illusion of separation any longer. It is impossible, for you are One.

As you consider this exchange of the sacred, with every breath that you take, also consider how the words you use travel out into infinity, affecting all of creation. So too, with your thoughts which are energetic exchanges. For some this concept is difficult to grasp, so we give you the visual of the breath, which is the same as the exchange of energy which occurs every moment of your day.

Life in this world can be difficult, especially when you feel alone and forgotten, when the challenges you face seem so insurmountable. This is why you are often told to just stop and take a breath to calm yourself.

We give you today the reason why taking a few deep breaths has such a calming effect on you. It helps facilitate the exchange of the sacredness within and without your physical being.

Dear One, it is time for you to realize how sacred all of life is, for each life created has a piece of the Divine within. Just as you leave a part of yourself in every creation of your own, be it through art or music, writing or gardening. Understand that within each of your creations, you embed a part of yourself which remains long after you have completed its birth.

So too, has the Divine, the Source, shared a part of Itself with you, in your creation, as in all of life as you see it. Change your perspective and begin to see how all of life is sacred. Everything you see is sacred and all are sustained by the breath of the Divine.

There is no hierarchy, for all are equal in their sacredness, all are seen as one. It is time for you to walk in this truth and treat all you encounter with love and respect. For all are a part of the Divine.

Reflect upon this truth as your world moves forward in this time of awakening. Hold onto this truth as you move through any challenges which may come your way.

The longing which you feel is for the remembrance of who you really are. There is a part of you who remembers a time without this physical world, a time when your connection with the All was clearer to you.

This is one of the challenges of this physical existence; to remember the whole despite the illusion of separateness. It is possible and more are awakening to this truth as their memories are stirred into action.

When you are unsure, take the time to just stop and breathe. Breathe in the breath of the Divine. A simple exercise which can be done anytime, anywhere. A constant connection with All of Creation which you have just forgotten.

Remember, Dear One,

The sacredness of life,

Of your life

And that of all of creation.

You are connected with it all

You are One,

One With All of Thee.

Hurricane Florence

My Dear Readers

I live in central North Carolina and so will feel the effects of hurricane Florence very soon. That means I may lose power for a week or longer. If this happens, I won’t be doing a post on Sunday. This will be the first time that I haven’t done a weekly post since the inception of this blog in September 2011. But in the event that I cannot get a post out, I wanted to give you two different tools to use in times of chaos. These are not my tools, but ones I learned from elsewhere and forgive me for not having the sources at hand to share with you.

First, if you are feeling stressed or anxious, you can do this exercise which will help calm you. This is from the tapping community.

  1. Sit or lie comfortably.
  2. Cross your left ankle over your right ankle.
  3. Extend your arms out in front of you and place the backs of your hands together.
  4. Cross your right hand over your left hand so that you can now clasp your hands together. If done correctly, you now have your right wrist laying on top of your left wrist.
  5. Now rotate your clasped hands under and up to your chest. Elbows are down and your clasped hands are close to your heart area.
  6. Gently allow your tongue to rest on the roof of your mouth.
  7. Now just breathe and enjoy the hug that you are giving yourself.

A dear friend showed me this and I do it often especially if I cannot fall asleep at night due to a racing mind. It works with the energetic meridians in your body.

Second, this is a meditation to help you overcome your fears.

  1. Close your eyes and think about a fear that you have.
  2. See it in your mind’s eye and answer these questions:
  3. What does your fear look like?
  4. What shape is it?
  5. How tall or wide is it?
  6. Does it have a texture?
  7. What color is it?
  8. Does it have a smell?
  9. Take a good look at it.
  10. Then wipe the slate clear and start this process all over again, once again seeing your fear and answering the same questions. Then wipe the slate clear.
  11. Repeat this process at least 6 times or until your fear has transformed or disappeared.

The point of this exercise is to see your fear. Because once you really look at your fear, you will realize that it is not as powerful as you once thought. This exercise came from one of my shaman friends and again, I apologize that I don’t have the source at hand.

I hope that one or both of these will help you in the coming days. We all can do our part to counteract the fear in this world with love. But it begins with each of us working on our own stuff. And the more balanced each of us can be, the better we can serve the world.

Many blessings to you all and I’ll be back as soon as I can.

Generator and gas, water, food that doesn’t require refrigeration, batteries, flashlights and candles. I think I’m as prepared as I can be.

Please send loving energy out to all those in the world who are experiencing trauma and challenges. We will get through the hard times together with love.

And remember chaos precedes calm and change.

Sending much love to you all.

Balance

Can you navigate this world

With grace?

With so many things to do,

And the perception of

Such limited time.

Can you move forward

With mindfulness,

Being present in the moment

Appreciating the gift

Of each moment of time?

Dear One, so many of you complain of how many things you have to do in such a short period of time. You speak of your ‘task lists’ and how long they are with more items added daily. There is almost an unspoken pride in how busy you are. The art of just being has been replaced with frenetic activity and worry.

It is time to restore the balance and reassess the true priorities in your life. For the human condition causes you to move to and fro in a frenzy, sacrificing integrity and grace to just ‘get things done.’ Ego comes into play when you decide that things must be done this way and in this time frame, rather than letting life flow gently and smoothly in Universal time.

Dear One, we have mentioned the web of connection and how there are energetic fields working to move your evolution forward. You are unable to see the larger picture from your perspective and so focus only on your one piece of the mosaic. When in fact, there is a forward movement despite what you believe. The web of connection is in constant motion moving forward, pulling here, slacking there to embrace all of creation in the Universal dance of grace and love.

By focusing only on your portion of the mosaic, thinking it is the ONLY part that you play in the ascension, you become judgmental, of yourself and others. For you haven’t done enough, you haven’t done it fast enough, you haven’t done it properly. The list of recriminations goes on and on.

It is time for you to stop and breathe. Stop and take a moment to remember the steps of the Universal Dance. You know them. For they are housed within you, awaiting your physical mind to quiet so they can emerge in joyful abandon.

You have forgotten how to flow, like water, from one moment to the next. You have forgotten how each segment of your life is connected; that when one segment is out of balance, it affects all other aspects of your life. Stop, sit, breathe and reflect. The world will not end if you do not accomplish these items on your list to be completed today.

You, Dear One, are a child of the Universe, gently and completely loved by the All That Is. Can you stop winding yourself tighter and tighter in the web until you are hopelessly bound and unable to do anything? Instead, begin to trust that all is happening as it should, in all aspects of your life.

Can you begin to focus solely on the task at hand and not attempt to do multiple tasks at once? Can you allow the gifts of abundance to naturally flow in your direction by being open to the help and guidance that is always there for you? Can you sit for a moment and breathe, trusting that you are not alone in this physical adventure of human existence?

The point of this life is to achieve personal growth through awakening to your true self, to the connection you have with all of creation. Remember the steps to the Universal dance and take a moment to allow your spirit, your soul, to flow in that universal stream of music and love.

When your life seems not to be working at all, it is time to stop and begin again. But not before you take a moment for gratitude, for honoring yourself for how far you have already come. You have made it this far, Dear One, and you have much further to go. Your glow increases every day as you begin to move forward in grace.

Acknowledge the connection you have to the All. And call for help when needed. Remember that no matter how you define success, you are awakening in the most perfect way. You are a child of the Universe. Play with that. Dance and pause when necessary to replenish yourself.

You are not an automaton.

You are a divine being in a physical body.

This segment of your journey is temporary

And yet will provide you

With much knowledge and personal growth.

Trust, in yourself

And in the perfect flow of the All of Creation.

You are a part of this.

For you are indeed

One With All of Thee.

Faith

How do you get through the trials of life?

How do you place one foot ahead of the other

And take another step forward?

How do you trust that it is actually a step forward

And not a step backward?

By having faith in yourself

And in your connection to the All.

Dear One, life on this physical plane can be very challenging. That is why this is a more powerful learning ground than most other possibilities. The physical body is fragile, though very functional. Human emotions come into play and you must acknowledge them without always acting upon them. And the mere act of being incarnated in a physical body gives the illusion of being alone. This is a challenge for the very best of you.

You have been told by many, including us, that meditation helps ease the weight of your perceived expectations of yourself and others. And yet, even in meditation, there is self-judgment for not being able to quiet the mind, as you feel you must during this practice. You feel pulled in so many directions with multiple tasks to do with limited time and resources. How do you move forward in grace and faith?

Dear One, the first step is to temper the self-expectations of your life needing to follow a certain path. Setting personal goals is a good practice, but those goals often do not include the energetic input from others. This illusion of being alone causes you to think that reaching your goals is determined only by your input and affects only you. When in reality, the web of connection sends and receives energies constantly across realms.

Can you, instead, move forward with faith that the result of your efforts is in perfect harmony with the All? Not reaching your personal goal does not define failure, for you have continued with forward movement. It could instead have allowed time for you to reassess, to reach out or connect with others. Or it may have provided a powerful lesson for you or for another.

You are in constant touch with many others, even though your physical body may appear geographically isolated. For this reason, you are affected by and also affect others in ways not within your conscious awareness. The result of your efforts may have placed you in exactly the perfect position to take your next step.

And when you take that next step, can you take it in faith and in gratitude? Can you understand that much of that self-judgment is only Ego ready to pounce and instill fear of failure within your psyche?

Dear One, can you allow yourself to flow from one task to another with the same ease that you move from one breath to another? Can you flow like water through your day, with a gentleness, filling the void which requires your energies at this very moment of time? Each moment may be different, have different needs for your presence, but can be reached with a fluid motion, with the grace of the flow of water. No rush, no judgment, just gentle movement forward throughout your day.

Step lightly, feel your foot connect with the ground upon which you walk. Breathe deeply and feel your connection with the air which fills your lungs. Stop and listen, pause and see what exists around you. Understand that your pause may have allowed another to take a step forward in the universal dance of being.

Dear One, take the time to bless yourself and your physical body for being able to reach this particular moment in time. Reflect upon how far you have come and trust that you will continue to move forward with gentle moves, sometimes with giant leaps, but always forward.

Release the need to have total control over your life. That is impossible because of the web of connection with the All That Is. Indeed, you have free will, always. But keep in mind the energetic vibrations which surround you at all times. If you feel that they are bringing you down, then move away from them, be it what you watch or read for entertainment or in your immediate environment with those around you.

As you continue to grow, you will become more aware of the changes of energetic vibrations around you and how you are affected by them. Allow yourself to gently flow to and fro, in between moments of action and rest. Allow this balance to be a part of your life.

You have so much to offer.

You have accomplished so much already.

And you have many more moments

Of joy and peace ahead.

 

Breathe deeply

Step lightly

And go forward with grace

With trust and with faith

In yourself and in the All.

Dear One With All That Is.

 

The Joy of Being

joy of being

Sibylle Von Olfers : The Root Children Flickr.com

This gift of life extended to you

Comes with much joy and love.

The challenges strengthen you

Empowering the muscles of love

To encompass all

With its strength and resolve.

Dear One, the life you live here upon this physical plane is but a gift of learning and expansion. See it not as anything but an opportunity to learn, to feel, to experience possibilities unknown across other realms. You have the opportunity to grow in a manner that is not possible anywhere else in the Universe.

The greatest lesson for you has been the misperception of being alone, as these physical bodies cause a feeling of separateness from the All. But the time is now for you to begin to understand your connectedness with the All That Is; to look beyond this physical realm into the great expansion of being, of love.

Have you contemplated what will occur when you shed your physical body at the end of your time here upon this physical plane? Who are you without this physical body? Do you still exist and where do you go? There are many beliefs among you and our intention is not to discredit any of them. For your beliefs mold your journey and direct you on your path.

We just ask you to consider what existence would be without this physical body. Can you even begin to fathom that possibility? You, Dear One, are an eternal being, with many lifetimes in many different realms, using many different tools for learning. On this physical plane, your body is but a tool for learning and nothing more.

There are many beings who have never inhabited a physical body. Many of your religions talk about this. And there is a curiosity of what a physical existence would entail. You are the adventurous one who chose the gift of incarnation into this physical realm. With all of its challenges, it also contains many joys encompassing all the physical senses.

We tell you this because the time is now for you to look beyond the physical nature of your existence. The connections you have with those in other realms are becoming stronger as you begin to spend time in meditation, in reflection and in love. For love is the tie that connects all, that empowers you and overcomes fear. Love is what enables and strengthens the connection you have with the All.

Consider the gift of this incarnation unrealized by so many souls. Understand the impermanence of this time in the physical realm and the opportunities to learn and grow. Yes, there is pain and suffering, but you have survived so much of it and have gained such strength and self-realization through it. The possibilities for growth are so much greater here than in many other planes of existence.

How are you recognized? Not through your physical frame, but by your energetic signature. You all have it and will maintain this throughout eternity. Begin your day with a tone, a single tone is all that is required. This acts as a beacon across the universe, a homing signal to tell us where you are. A vocalization of your energetic signature travels across realms as your personal song. Do this every morning upon awakening to connect with those in the seen and the unseen worlds. Consider it as the howling of the wolves bringing the pack together. For now is the time for all of us to work together to raise the vibrations here upon this physical plane.

Dear One. It is time to swing the pendulum back from where it has swung into the direction of love and connection. It is not every man for himself. That is impossible and only a product of seeing the physical body as the only nature of existence. Do not allow the human mind to enslave you. Instead, allow your heart connection to lead you forward en masse with all the others who are now awakening.

Do not diminish your growth, your strength and how far you have come. Tone your energetic signature and connect with others who do the same. You are not alone. You have never been alone and the time is now for you to consciously join hearts with others across realms.

Open your heart to the possibilities of love. Sing your song daily and connect in love to All. Give gratitude for this physical existence and reflect upon the strength you gained getting to this very moment in time.

You, Dear One, are more than you think.

You, Dear One, are stronger than you realize.

You, Dear One, are always connected in love.

Dear One With All of Thee.
