Finding Your Internal Peace

It is there, that place of peace.

It resides within your heart, calm and centered,

While the world around you seems chaotic and restless.

Visit there often, your heart,

Rest in the comfort of knowing

That is the place always filled with those who love you.

For you are never alone.

Dear One, during those times of distress, when you feel the world surrounding you is offering only fearful experiences, find the solace you seek within your heart. It is there where you can rest, knowing you are surrounded by loved ones; those who care more deeply for you than you can ever imagine.

For you are loved dearly, just as you are capable of loving others with the same intensity, the same focus, unconditionally.

You are never alone. That is impossible, though this physical existence fosters that illusion. But if you could shed that physical exterior and view your existence from our perspective, that of only energy and light, you would understand.

It is difficult, we acknowledge, for one who lives and remembers only a physical existence, to fathom an existence without a physical body. And yet, you leave your body quite often; those times when you daydream and find yourself elsewhere from where your physical body sits. Your consciousness also streams at night, as your physical body rests. Have you not had dreams that were so realistic, you have remembered many details and how they have affected you?

Dear One, when you sit quietly in meditation or contemplation, the physical world around you fades away, as your consciousness follows its own path forward.  Some of you may have even seen colors or images during these quiet times. For those who feel they cannot meditate due to the chatter of their minds, we give you encouragement. For even during the times when you attempt to sit quietly, with no perceived success, you have made a connection.

It is during these times that we are better able to reach you, even though your conscious mind may not be aware of the connection. It is during these times that you are holding sacred space, inviting connection, and we are there with you, en masse, even though you may not yet be aware. It is during these times that we honor you, for setting aside the time to be quiet.

Dear One, you were birthed into this physical world for a purpose, unique and individual for each of you. You were gently cradled before your transition into this physical world, just as you will be gently cradled as you return to us. You are a child of the Universe, constantly watched over, gently guided and urged to follow your path of remembrance. This is the path which allows you to come into your own power once again. This is the path which reveals to you the purpose of your physical life and the path to strengthening your connection to the All and to the Source.

When you feel alone, put your hand upon your heart and feel the warmth, the love, which is housed there, filled to capacity with loving kindness, compassion, and support. You have your own personal oasis in a sea of external chaos. Go there often to replenish and rejuvenate. Go there to open the connection to the All. Go there when you are seeking support and you will receive it.

Dear One, we are listening.

We are extending our tender embrace to comfort you.

Call upon us in your times of need.

You are never alone.

Dear One with All of Thee.

                    Reflecting on the Passage of Time                    http://www.astrophotography.com.au

For what do you yearn?

Is it a memory of the past?

Of interactions long gone?

What is the true reason for these cravings?

Dear One, so many of you look so longingly at your past, wishing you could be there once again. You crave the way you felt or the interactions you once had. Your memories are filled with thoughts of times better than those existing for you now.

Why does your life feel so different today? What has changed so much that you yearn for something from your past? Is your present so difficult? Or have your perceptions of your life been skewed by selective memories altered over time?

Dear One, do not choose to live in the past when the present is here filled with potential and opportunities for love and change. There is impermanence to everything here in this physical world. For without that impermanence, change would not be possible.

Look to the flowers in spring emerging after a long winter. They are here for a short time before they once again fade into a memory of beauty realized. But in that short time, they lifted spirits, they gave forth nectar, they provided seeds for abundance for the next season.

Everything that occurs in your life provides seeds for abundance for the next chapter. The old cycle must end to provide for the new cycle. And during that transition, there is much growth, much strength built, with time for rest before the next cycle begins.

Can you embrace impermanence rather than long for what was? Can you love the entire cycle from beginning to end with the understanding that this is how you grow? And can you love more fully knowing that what you love may be gone tomorrow?

You enter each new cycle with more knowledge, more strength, more tools than you had in the previous cycle. Much of what you crave from the past will no longer serve you today; for you have grown exponentially over the course of your life.

Dear One, do not fear, do not judge what lies before you at this moment. Your life is unfolding as it should and if transitions are occurring, it is because you are being guided into the next chapter of your life. Have no regrets. Make no comparisons. For the new day dawning has potential for greatness and you, Dear One, are ready to rise to your potential.

Just as memories of the past may be clouded with emotion or longing, so too your self- image. You may not see your true greatness and how much you have grown. But we can see you clearly in all of your brilliance and oh how you shine!

Review your past with gratitude for what it has given you, for leading you to the present moment.

View your present as the opportunity it truly is to grow and love; to use the gifts you have been given.

Allow the future to unfold as it will. Worry not about outcome. For no matter what that outcome may be, in truth it will be greater than you can imagine.

Live in the present in all of its beauty.

Embrace the impermanence of your life knowing that this is how change and opportunity occur.

And call upon us when you need the comfort of our embrace.

For this we will gladly give to you.

Always.

A Time of Remembrance

Close your eyes and open your heart

Shut down your mind

Remember who you really are

The memories are in your heart, not in your mind

Dear One, it is time for you to open your heart so that the memories of your true nature can begin to flow back into your conscious memory. You have spent too much time in your head. This is not something that can be directed by sheer will. Instead, the way to remembrance is through a complete release and openness to the ways of love.

For you cannot walk your path without opening your heart to love. You are a creature of love, that is your true make-up. One of light and love, not mind or thought. Can you approach your life with full abandon and allow it to flow; allow the synchronicities of your life to occur?

This is how you once existed, in a sea of light that ebbed and flowed with a gentleness that embraced and encouraged you. You still exist in this sea of light, a part of you is there now. It is only the denseness of this physical existence that leads to you believe that you must plod along, push forward and be in control. When in truth, the way to be is to allow yourself to be carried along with the current; to share love with everything, everyone you pass on your journey.

Can you understand that your true nature is a part of a whole, not a solo individual? Your true nature allows you to draw help, knowledge, comfort from endless sources. For each of these sources is a part of you, a part of the whole of which you reflect in your very being. Allow yourself to remember your true nature by opening up your heart. Soon, you will be able to connect with these different aspects of the whole. Soon it will become second nature to you and you will wonder how you existed without this means of receiving knowledge.

The truth is that you just were lost; lost in the sea of confusion and ego that permeates this physical plane. But your plane has turned a corner and the possibilities which have always been there, will be more apparent to you. The key is love, Dear one, not fear. Fear does not have any power over you in truth, for you are much stronger than fear. But your mind has convinced you otherwise.

Remember, Dear one, and open the channels of connection that have been clogged with fear. Flush those channels with light. Open the portals of love so that you may become your magnificent self here upon this physical plane. Remember that this physical plane is only one aspect of who you are. Without going into too much depth, we want to help you to see the way. The way of your true path. The way that is filled with the brilliance of light from all parts of the whole. The way back to the Source, of which you are a part.

Remember that a part of the Source lives within you. That is how you came into being and so you can never be separate. None of you are separate. Some are just enshrouded in more fear and doubt than others.

Break free, sing, dance and allow your brilliance to shine.

Open your heart, shut down your mind and just be.

Allow the love to flow, to reflect to and from your very being.

And feel the lightness of your being.

One with All of Thee.
