Go Within

luminous-landscape.com

The peace lies within

Amidst the fear and trepidation.

Let your breath help you navigate

Towards the calm center.

In and Out

Towards peace and tranquility.

Dear One, you are on a journey for which you are prepared, although you had not planned this route. And yet, you have all the tools, the roadmaps, the supplies. And the destination is the same. Home.

How often has the incline been steeper than you envisioned. And yet you were able to reach the top. You had more strength and resolve than you realized. For you did not have enough faith in yourself. And yet, upon reflection after reaching your goal, you saw that many of the supplies you brought were unnecessary.

For you had the most important provision within you. It was your spirit, your sense of worth, your determination to continue the journey no matter what lies ahead.

Perhaps you thought of your loved ones who were cheering you on as you forged ahead. Perhaps it was the knowledge of what you could achieve once you reached your destination. Or perhaps it was just that inner voice telling you that you could do this, you had the strength to continue.

Dear One, all of these are true now as well. The landscape may have changed, but the journey continues to lead you forward. Always forward. And as you continue, consider the burdens which you can discard along the way.

Greed, judgment and fear can be like heavy clay caked upon the soles of your boots weighing you down with each step. Self-recrimination can be one of the heaviest burdens of all.

Remember that you live in a world of duality, with both light and dark present and necessary to keep this world in balance. You also exist in duality with both light and shadow running through your veins. This is a part of who you are as you live in this physical world. And so too, it is necessary to keep both in balance to live your best life.

When you look at yourself and see only the shadow, only the traits you wish to discard, consider this. In what situation might those perceived negative traits be helpful. Would not the quiet one be a perfect companion for someone who needs to talk in order to heal? Would not a bold one be the perfect advocate for someone who cannot stand up for themselves? Would not an obsessive one be perfect to help someone who cannot begin to organize their life?

Any and all traits that make up your countenance are helpful when they are used in moderation. When they are kept in balance. Reflect upon this and how you may have judged yourself much too harshly in the past. Your moon has a light and dark side. Your planet cycles through light and darkness with each phase providing the perfect environment for many necessary activities.

Dear One, as you continue on this journey discard the burden of perfection. For your perception of it is inaccurate. Discard the burden of the past and any judgments that live there. And discard the fear of the future, for it does not yet exist. And your actions in this very moment can affect tomorrow.

As you continue on this journey, allow your breath to guide you. The breath of the Divine will calm you and center you. See in your mind’s eye the guide rope of your connection to the All. It is there in front of you to help you move forward. Discard the heaviness and allow the light to melt away any disparaging thoughts.

This is your journey and you are ready. You have been prepared and you have much to give and share with others as they walk alongside of you. As they have much to share with you in return. You are not an island in a sea of unrest. You are a bridge that connects earth and sky, up and down, light and dark. You are the fulcrum that helps balance the pendulum between these dualities.

You are present now because you are strong and a Divine source of light and love. Do not doubt yourself and your inner strength. Do not doubt that you are co-creator of your world with the Source.  

Remember that you are the embodiment of love. Created in love. To live a life of love. To once again return to love at the end of this part of your journey.

Breathe In and Out

Send love out with every breath.

You are capable

You are loved.

You are supported in love.

Always.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

How to Stay Calm

twitter.com

Dear Readers

There is so much uncertainty and fear in the world today. Isolation and sickness, feeling helpless and hopeless about what is occurring. I know it is difficult to keep your spirits and energies up at this time. So I wanted to re-post something I shared during the hurricane season in 2018. There are two exercises that you can do to calm yourself and to help diminish your fears. Acknowledging the emotions we have is important because they are a part of who we are at this time. But by really looking at your fear in the second exercise and really seeing it, you may find that the power it has over you will diminish.

I ask you all to continue to send out love into this world. I do believe that love is stronger than fear and encourage you to reach out only in love and support. Be that source of help and strength for others. And if you need replenishment yourself, then lean on those around you, seen and unseen with gratitude and love.

Sending much love

Celine

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.

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.

Come Together

nova.edu

You are One

You are connected.

Come together in harmony

With the other parts of yourself,

Become whole in love.

Dear One, you are just one small part of an expansive whole of love, beating as one heart. Accept this truth now as your world begins to shift and awaken. Reach out to others in love and solidarity. The time for personal memory is past. The time for collective consciousness has begun.

You are a part of a whole, breathing organism, not separate, but connected in ways you will begin to see at this time. You have already begun to reach out across restrictive barriers to connect with others in creative ways. Much more is possible as you feel the need for connection.

That connection is not only with others like yourself, incarnated in form at this time. The connection is also with the unseen world, which is supporting you as you gain your ability to navigate in new ways. Allow yourself the time to sit in stillness and connect with the unseen as well.

For you are a Divine being with a foot in both worlds, the physical and non-physical. This is a time for you to learn how to move forward with a new cadence. The cadence of the Divine breath, the Divine heart which pulses across infinity. You are a part of this.

Remove the blinders you have worn for so long. And see how you are surrounded by love. Immerse yourself in this loving energy. For it fills you, it emanates from within you. You have just forgotten and we are here to help you to remember who you truly are.

Fear has no place in the coming times. Only love. For so much can be accomplished with love. The possibilities are endless. Fear will only limit you in the wondrous changes which are coming to your world. Can you embrace this new way of being knowing that nothing, no one is lost, only transformed as the world, the Universe evolves?

You are aware of the cycle of life. Mother Nature has shown you through her cycles of growth, rest and rebirth. You are the new life emerging from the seed. That new sprout deep in the earth reaching upwards through the darkness towards the light of the sun. You are the new hatchling beginning to emerge from the egg.

There is work involved in emergence into a new way of being, into the freedom which comes from growth. You are the fertile pods of loving energies just beginning to break free of an old way of life. Do not despair. This is a wondrous time which has been anticipated. Many of you have been prepared for this with tools to use to help make this process as gentle as possible.

You are ready, Dear One. You have the strength, the connection and the resolve to be a part of this new awakening. Send love out to this world. Not fear. For each of you has so much love to give. It is within you, eager to emerge and shine its light on your world.

Open your heart and connect with all. There are loving forces around you which are holding this world in balance as you recalibrate. Honor the Mother. Give gratitude for all that you have been given. Send love to all. No judgment of self or others. No me and thee, only us, together as one.

Honor yourself, for you are ready. You have come so far. It is time to take another giant step in your growth. As One, in unison, in love.

You are One.

You are Love Incarnate.

And you are the seed of change.

The time is now.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

What If?

What if love replaced fear?

What if compassion replaced judgment?

What if peace replaced anxiety?

What if stillness replaced activity?

What if?

Dear One, there is a larger part of thee that resides within your heart. This part comes from love, from a place of stillness. It understands the connection of all things. And it is being allowed the opportunity to emerge in all of its strength to guide you forward from this moment on.

Just as a bud slowly emerges, awakening after a season of darkness and sleep, this part of you is ready to awaken from within and come into full bloom. But it takes time and nurturing. This natural cycle occurs regularly but often goes unnoticed.

Until there is a season of exponential growth. The contributing factors converge into an intensity of growth with blossoms exploding in beauty and abundance. That time is now. And you are being offered the potential for an outcome more wondrous than you could imagine.

Dear One, nurture this potential with love, not fear. Feed it with compassion and gratitude. See the possibilities that can emerge with a change in perspective. Understand that growth requires time. Time for strength to build. Time for adjustment to the surrounding environment. Time to learn how to use the emerging parts still tender and new.

You are being given the opportunity to burst forth in wondrous beauty. You have all that you require within you to move forward in grace and strength. An untapped well of potential.

Are you willing to unfold the casing which has covered your inner self for so long? Are you willing to connect with the heartbeat of the Source, to soften your thoughts, words and actions with a layer of gentle strength?

You, Dear One, are awakening from a long slumber. As you open your eyes, see the connection of all things. Understand how sharing with others is opening the channel to receiving in return. Practice shining your inner light outward to lift others higher. Understand that there is abundance for all. Open your eyes, your heart, and see the possibilities.

You are not helpless but a powerful contributor to change. It begins with you and how you move forward from this moment on. Sit in stillness and connect with that inner power. Send that strength down the conduits which connect you to all of creation. And if necessary, draw that strength through the same channels when you feel depleted.

You, Dear One, are capable, strong and resilient. All which come from within your heart. Solutions to perceived roadblocks lie within you. Seek the silence to allow them to emerge, to help you move forward with mastery and grace.

You are a child of the Universe. You exist upon many planes simultaneously. This is what contributes to your capability of navigating challenges with grace. You have the answers. They lie within you. They will emerge during times of stillness. Stop and listen. Stop and hear that quiet voice within. It is speaking to you.

Listen.

Trust that you are in the perfect place at the most perfect time to contribute the gifts you have to give. Approach your life with the knowledge that you are being guided forward with gentle hands. Understand that you can create a different world filled with love. And remember that you are a divine being always connected with the Source and the All That Is.

Choose love

Choose compassion.

Choose peace.

Allow stillness to reveal

The knowledge that you seek.

And see how your world changes.

It begins with you enveloped

In the loving arms of the All.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

An Imagined Letter from COV-ID 19 to Humans

123rf.com

Dear Ones, I received this Imagined Letter from a friend recently. I found it to be very powerful and wanted to share it with you. Life is changing and will most likely change more before we reach the other end. But there is still much joy in the world. The beauty of spring/fall, the joy of breathing, living, loving. Viewing the world around you through a different lens can make such a difference. Please understand that you are not a single entity here alone on an island. You are part of a wondrous whole which is changing. And as the whole changes, so must we. Close your eyes and go within for strength. Open your eyes and look at this world in all of its splendor. We will get through this and always have help just a breath away.

Om Mani Padme Hum

(which means Hail to the Jewel in the Lotus ) Repeat this phrase  OM MAH-NEE PUD-MAY HOOM in powers of three, up to 33 times, and you will connect with all who ever recited it. 

Blessings to All, Celine

An Imagined Letter from COVID-19 to Humans

Stop. Just stop. It is no longer a request. It is a mandate. We will help you. We will bring the supersonic, high speed merry-go-round to a halt. We will stop the planes the trains the schools the malls the meetings the frenetic, furied rush of illusions and “obligations” that keep you from hearing our single and shared beating heart, the way we breathe together, in unison.

Our obligation is to each other, As it has always been, even if, even though, you have forgotten. We will interrupt this broadcast, the endless cacophonous broadcast of divisions and distractions, to bring you this long-breaking news: We are not well. None of us; all of us are suffering. Last year, the firestorms that scorched the lungs of the earth did not give
you pause. Nor the typhoons in Africa,China, Japan. Nor the fevered climates in Japan and India.

You have not been listening. It is hard to listen when you are so busy all the time, hustling to uphold the comforts and conveniences that scaffold your lives. But the foundation is giving way, buckling under the weight of your needs and desires.

We will help you. We will bring the firestorms to your body We will bring the fever to your body We will bring the burning, searing, and flooding to
your lungs that you might hear: We are not well.

Despite what you might think or feel, we are not the enemy.
We are Messenger. We are Ally. We are a balancing force.

We are asking you: To stop, to be still, to listen; To move beyond your individual concerns and consider the concerns of all; To be with your ignorance, to find your humility, to relinquish your thinking minds and travel deep into the mind of the heart; To look up into the sky, streaked with fewer planes, and see it, to notice its condition: clear, smoky, smoggy, rainy?

How much do you need it to be healthy so that you may also be healthy? To look at a tree, and see it, to notice its condition: how does its health contribute to the health of the sky, to the air you need to be healthy? To visit a river, and see it, to notice its condition: clear, clean, murky, polluted? How much do you need it to be healthy so that you may also be healthy? How does its health contribute to the health of the tree, who contributes to the health of the sky, so that
you may also be healthy?

Many are afraid now. Do not demonize your fear, and also, do not let it rule you. Instead, let it speak to you—in your stillness, listen for its wisdom. What might it be telling you about what is at work, at issue, at risk, beyond the threats of personal inconvenience and illness? As the health of a tree, a river, the sky tells you about quality of your own health, what might the quality of your health tell you about the health of the rivers, the trees, the sky, and all of us who share this planet with you?

Stop. Notice if you are resisting. Notice what you are resisting. Ask why.
Stop. Just stop.

Be still. Listen.

Ask us what we might teach you about illness and healing, about what might be required so that all may be well. We will help you, if you listen.

Impermanence

theweathernetwork.com

The Universe is in constant flux

Moving, growing, expanding

In every moment of time.

So too, you and your world

Are doing the same.

Understand the impermanence

Of your world and beyond.

Dear One, with every breath that you take you and your world have changed from the moment before. Nothing is static. Nothing is permanent. All that occurs in your life is a bridge to the next moment, the continued state of growth for you and your world.

Remember that you are connected to the All That Is. And so, you will be a part of any change that is occurring across the Universe. You are not alone. That is not possible as every part of Creation is connected. Consider this as you move through periods of great change.

Your existence here upon this physical plane is an opportunity for wondrous growth for both you and the collective consciousness. For what you learn here will travel through the web of connection to all points of contact.

But that connection runs in both directions and you have a wealth of knowledge and love being sent to you throughout your day. Change is necessary in order for you to have a full experience during this incarnation. And as the world around you evolves, as the Mother also expands in growth, you will be required to change how you live your life.

Dear One, can you view your world through a softer lens? Can you begin to understand that if one part of life here is under stress, the rest will be affected? Consider your physical body and how an injury in one part will affect the rest in one way or another. And how you respond to that injury, be it with fear or with love, will affect the length of the healing process.

You have much greater power in changing this world than you realize. Your approach to the daily fluctuations can have great affect upon the next moment in time. Whatever is occurring for you in this moment can change in the next. And yes, we mean to say what is occurring FOR you. For life here happens FOR you, not TO you.

Each moment in time is an opportunity for growth, for realization that you are a Divine being experiencing a physical existence. Every occurrence, every interaction provides you with an opportunity to act in love or with fear. These are the building blocks of your experience. The question is whether you want to build the foundation of your life, of your world, on fear or on love.

Consider the trials that appear before you and how you respond. Do you act as a part of the whole? Or do you act as if you are separate, requiring protection or distance from others? Whatever is occurring in your life at this time is a temporary state. The question is whether you will experience it with love or with fear. Do you build a world of fear or of love? The choice is yours. And how you respond will affect the timbre, the essence of the next opportunity for growth.

Change is inevitable. Change is constant. Change is how the Universe breathes. Whether it bellows or whispers is in response to your actions in this moment of time.

Choose love, Dear One. For that is your true nature. Choose to honor your connections with the All, for it is the truth of your existence. Choose a softer lens through which to view your life, your world. For you are a powerful being who is capable of creating your life, your world around you.

And if you do not like what you are experiencing at this moment, know that it will change in the next moment. And how it changes is affected by how you walk through this moment in time. See this existence as an opportunity for growth, not only for you personally, but for the All.

Remember that all that exists is this moment in time. The past is the lessons learned. The future is still being created. It is only the present which matters. And in a breath, it will be gone.

Choose love.

Know your power

And how you can change the world.

And understand that all that occurs

Is an opportunity for growth.

You are a Divine being

Who chose this path

To teach, to learn, to grow.

Grow in love

Dearest One With All of Thee.

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.
