Solitude

Are you able to spend time alone

In silence?

Can you reflect without judgment?

Do you like yourself enough

To enjoy time alone?

Dear One, personal growth requires time alone, spent in reflection and prayer. Giving gratitude for all that you have, for who you are and for the opportunities that are laid before you. Are you able to see yourself for who you really are and enjoy your own company? Or is time spent alone used for self-judgment and criticism?

This world in which you live offers many distractions throughout your day. It is easy to follow those distractions rather than spending time alone in self-reflection and peace. For too many of you, the distractions are used to keep that internal critical voice from speaking to you. Better to be engaged rather than addressing and quieting that self-critic. Easier to concern yourself with the drama in the lives of others than to examine the emotional triggers in your own life.

Dear One, you have been given many tools to help you move away from that self-judgment and it can be as simple as using your breath as a metronome. With each breath, inhale love and exhale fear and judgment. Time spent focusing on your breath will calm you and allow you to move away from that self-critic.

Internalizing negative feelings without being provided the opportunity for release can foster expansion of that negativity affecting your entire being. If you are unable to connect with another to resolve a conflict in person, understand that you are able to do it in the energetic plane. Remember that your physical body is but a garment worn for a short time and that your true nature is one of fluid energy. This means that you can interact with others without being physically present.

This can be done as you focus on your breath. You can send loving kindness to others, give or ask for forgiveness, and ask for help in resolving any existing conflict.

What is most important is that you do not hold this negativity within but release it in a fashion that best suits you. Keeping a journal or putting down on paper your thoughts and then burning it in ceremony. If brought to the light, the wounds you carry will begin to heal. If kept within to be recirculated time and again, they will fester and grow. Which do you choose?

Dear One, there is joy within you. And you are able to allow this to surface and be shared with others. You are love incarnate. You may have taken a detour and lost your way for a short time, but you will always be led back on your path through synchronicity. Be aware of those moments. Be aware of what is occurring in your immediate environment and be aware of how you respond. Mindfulness is a tool to show you the way when you are lost.

Your heart is your guide home, not your mind. Have faith in yourself that you will find a way, find the path best for you to move forward with loving kindness for others, but most importantly for yourself. For indeed, you cannot have love for another if you do not have love for yourself. All are connected and when you judge yourself harshly, you are judging others as well, for all are one.

There is no need to make comparisons for all are one and you are actually comparing yourself to yourself. And the waves of negativity spread out in concentric circles around you. Change them to waves of love and see how your life changes.

You are so loved and only judged by yourself. Criticism sent your way from others is only displaced criticism they have for themselves. You do the same. Again, we say that you cannot love another if you cannot love yourself first.

Change the way you see yourself.

See yourself as we do,

As love incarnate

Courageous enough to embark upon this journey.

Ask for help and guidance if you lose your way.

You are worthy.

You are loved.

You are One With All of Thee.

The Calm Within

inner calm

Ripples on the Ocean by Vladimir Kush http://artgalereya.mirtesen.ru

It is there

Waiting for you to find it.

The soothing calm needed

To continue moving forward

In grace.

Dear One, you came to this physical plane with many tools yet to be discovered by you. And one of them is the internal calm present in each and every one of you. The fast pace of this world with its demands and perceived priorities have pulled you away from the very place which will help you replenish; that well of internal calm, always present, rarely used.

In order to move forward and to grow on your path, more time is required looking within and finding that inner peace. There are so many distractions in your life which can make it difficult to find the time to go within and rest. Can you ask yourself how to prioritize your time to allow this inner journey to occur daily?

Many feel that they need to spend a lengthy period of time sitting and breathing, with no thoughts at all, in order to make that connection. But, Dear One, even the masters have thoughts running through their minds as they sit quietly. The key is not to engage with those thoughts. Allow them to flow out with your breath, releasing them as you exhale. Do not despair as more thoughts come. It takes much practice to allow the mind to settle down and to stop engaging.

Breathe in calm, breathe out a smile. How many times do you stop breathing throughout your day? A deep calming breath can do so much for you. Try it now. Inhale for 5 counts, hold for 5 counts, exhale for 5 counts. Filling your lungs with the air around you will provide you with more energy to take the next step.

You are connected to the Source and that connection lies within you. The physical body is just a vehicle, a tool, to allow you to move through this physical world as you learn what you came here to learn. The external physical world is an illusion created by you, necessary for your lessons, but not true reality.

Your connection to the All is within you. What depths of knowledge and love exist within that physical body of yours? The Universe does not exist externally. The Universe exists within you through this connection. You are a piece of this infinite expansion of love and creation. All that you see and consider real is but a hologram. You are so much more than you realize.

What do you do with this piece of knowledge? Know that the answers rest within you. Understand the synchronicities in your life are there to help guide you forward. For each and every one of you has this connection with the Source and with each other. Many of the guiding moments in your life are intangible, internal and energetic exchanges.

Those who are more sensitive understand how they are affected by these unseen forces and as you awaken you will also begin to notice these connections. Being aware of these is but another tool for you to use as you move through your day. But in order to become more aware, it is necessary to give yourself the time to sit and just be present with your breath, with your connection to the All.

This can be done in a moment, in a breath with the intent of finding that connection. The calm within will emerge as you give a moment of pause, of reflection, of love, of breath. Notice how often you hold that breath in anger, fear or frustration. When you do, allow it to flow once again, deeply and calmly.

Begin to use the tools given to you for moving through this physical existence. You are not your physical body, that fragile form which navigates this world. You are so much more, Dear One. The strength of you, the love of your creation and the connection to the All lie within you. Find that inner calm and go there daily, if only for a moment, for a breath. Find it and you will feel the peace of the Source, the strength and knowledge of the Universe. For this is you, in all of your splendor.

Love exists

It is you.

In conjunction with the peace within.

Do not accept the external illusions as your reality.

Your true self lies within

Connected to the All.

Indeed, you are

One With All of Thee.

Walk in Peace

Breathe in peace.

Breathe out peace.

Know the power which rests within you,

The knowledge at your fingertips

If only you will accept this truth

In your heart and your mind.

Dear One, it is time to start trusting yourself and accepting the truth of who you really are. We have told you many times that you are a being of light inhabiting a physical form for a short period of time. But for many, we know, this is a difficult concept to grasp. And so, we will try to explain with a little more depth for you to reflect upon as you move through your day.

The difficulty of this life comes from the major contrast to your natural state. In that natural state, you are very aware of your connection to the All and how your energy moves in synchrony with that of others. You are like a part of the breeze which gently blows across your cheek here in the physical. You have form, but it is much more fluid, and much less cumbersome to move.

In your natural state, you are aware of the love which surrounds you at all times. You have the choice of what you would like to learn to further grow, for yourself, but also for the collective consciousness. You are an individual being and yet you are aware that you are never alone, of the impossibility of that concept.

You are gently guided forward by elders who have existed much longer than you. There is never any judgment, only encouragement for self-discovery and personal growth. You are aware of places you have existed, be they here upon this physical plane or in other realms much lighter and easier to navigate without such a fragile human form.

You are connected in many ways which cannot be explained at this time. And you have free will, always, in how you choose to move forward on your path. And for the purpose of expanding your knowledge of self, you chose to come here to this physical plane for a short time. For as an eternal being, truly your time here in this life is but a blink of an eye.

Not all of you embodied in your human form for it is too fragile to contain all of who you are. This means that there is a part of you left behind in that realm of higher vibration. It is often referred to as your higher self. And it is this part of you, with the help of others around you, which gently guides you as you walk here on this earthly plane. And often when your physical body rests, you travel and return to consult with your guides who view your life here from a higher perspective.

If you could see your life from the same perspective as they do, you would understand that this physical existence is a gift and chosen by the courageous ones who wanted to go further on their personal journeys of self-discovery. You would understand that the connection which you have with the All also connects you to the knowledge of the Universe. But just as a child is given only so much information at a time, this knowledge is revealed to you in small doses until you grow further and are better able to accept more knowledge.

We are trying to reveal to you what will help you on this journey. Perhaps a word will spark a memory of time spent in another realm, of a loving atmosphere, surrounded by others who gently guide you forward.

You have come here to practice creation as you have the power to create your own world. You have been told this before. But you have yet to grasp this concept and instead accept the illusion that you are incapable of changing your life. You continue to give your power away to others and allow them to create your world which often causes you much pain and distress.

Walk in peace, Dear One, and begin to test the waters of your own personal power. Awaken with the intent of having a most wonderful day. Know, truly know, that the outcome of any interaction will be the most perfect outcome for the highest good. Begin to test these possibilities and see how your day changes. It takes practice. It takes faith in yourself. But you are ready. You have begun to awaken and now it is time for you to begin to stretch your wings.

Accept your power

And use it to create a world of love.

Just like the realm from which you came.

It begins with trusting yourself and your intuition.

Listen to the guidance from your higher self.

It will come from your heart.

In the most opportune times.

Listen, accept and love.

Love like you have loved once before

In another place.

A place you called home.

Dear One With All of Thee.

The Passage of Time

Time moves forward at the same rate every day

Even though you often think it is moving too fast or too slow.

Your perception changes depending on your state of mind.

How does this affect other areas of your life?

Dear One, you mark the passage of time with your clocks often thinking it is moving too slowly or too fast. And yet, here upon this physical plane, your science tells you that the passage of time moves forward at a constant rate. In other realms, time does not even exist as everything occurs in the now. And so, how should you view time and its passage here upon this earthly plane?

Can you approach your day with the belief that there is plenty of time to do what you feel needs to be done? Remember that you are creator of your own world. And you can create a most perfect day ahead of you or one that is filled with misery and chaos. It is your choice how your day goes forward.

Do you not often lose yourself in time when you are so focused on the task at hand? You are truly living in the moment, completely present with what you are doing. You are living in the now and are not worried about the time. Compare this to times when you are anticipating an upcoming event and it seems as if eons need to pass before you reach the time when this event will occur. In this scenario, you are not at all present in the now, but are looking ahead to the future and time appears to move ever so slowly.

This is difficult for you, we know. In your natural state you are aware that all can occur exactly in the same moment. There really is no past or future, only the present. So how do you reconcile this difference in relation to time as the energies raise here and you walk with a foot in both worlds?

Can you begin to approach your day in a different manner? Can you see your ‘future’ as if it is already occurring in the present? Rather than anticipating how an interaction will occur and worrying about its outcome, can you see it occurring at this very moment with the most perfect of outcomes? Remember that you are co-creator of your own world. This requires a leap of faith for you in believing that indeed you have the power to create your world.

Can you approach each part of your day with love rather than fear? Again, this requires a leap of faith for you that all is well and occurring exactly as it should to move the collective consciousness forward. If you can believe in a benevolent Universe of which you are a part, you are better able to accept whatever outcome which occurs. Consider if everyone here upon this plane takes this approach and how your world would change to a kinder and more loving world.

You, Dear One, are a being of vibrational energy and expending that energy on worry and fear rather than on love will deplete the reserves that you have. How often have you noticed how exhausted you are after a huge emotional event in your life? Constant worry and fear is not sustainable and difficult for your fragile human forms. Do not lose sight of the fact that everything that occurs in your life is a sacred event. For everything in creation is sacred, coming from the Source and once again returning to the Source.

We encourage you to be more present in the moment and focused on what you are doing right now. With every breath that you take offer blessings to the world and know, truly know, that all is well, all will be well. Your future is your present expanded outward into infinity. See it as perfect in every way. Know, truly know, that offering gratitude for the future’s blessings will bring you exactly what you need at this time.

You create your own world

In conjunction with the All That Is.

You are given what you ask for

Be it positive or negative from your point of view.

Choose love, choose to be present in the moment

And see how your world changes.

Do not underestimate your power

In creating your future.

For indeed, you are One With All of Thee.

Impermanence

impermanence

http://www.pinterest.com           Land Art, un jeu d’enfants

Constant movement

Constant change

Allows for growth.

The Universe is moving forward

Bringing you and all of creation with it.

Permanent stasis is not an option.

Dear One, it is impossible for you to remain the same day after day. As we mentioned before, all of creation is in constant movement and this includes you. It may not be obvious to you for the forces may be working on your subconscious or superconscious. But movement is occurring within and around you every moment of your day.

The concept of impermanence is well- known in your world, though many still do not accept this as truth. It is apparent in the cycle of life and for those who live in nature, it is seen every day as the Mother replenishes and changes throughout the day. Just as the ocean ebbs and flows with its waves caressing the shore, so too, does life move through and around you constantly.

Pain and suffering is impermanent, unless you choose to hold it close to you throughout your life. So too, joy can be impermanent, unless you choose to see the wonder, the beauty in all that crosses your path. The bloom of a flowering plant lasts only so long, a youthful body ages daily and loved ones come into your life and often leave to pursue their own dreams.

Dear One, when a moment in your life is particularly challenging, can you remind yourself that it soon will pass, unless you choose to weave your story around the incident. The ebullient high that comes from a joyous occasion may not continue in that intensity, although a softened, calmer version may remain with you for a long time.

The intensity of any emotion, be it joy or pain, is just a blip on the chart of your life. Moments like these can strengthen you or provide you with respite from other challenges that are present. Living with such extremes of expression is difficult to maintain in this human existence. But understanding that ‘this too will pass’ may provide solace, particularly when the pain is so great. The residue will remain, but at a more tolerable intensity enabling you to better process your life with more clarity.

Knowing that life can change in an instant may be incentive for you to appreciate that which you have in your life at this very moment. Lessons are presented to you daily to encourage you to move forward in grace. Whether you choose to take those lessons and learn from them is up to you. But remember that this life in your physical realm is offered as a learning ground for you. And so, if you choose not to learn a particular lesson at this time, rest assured that it will be presented to you again. For this is why you are here.

Dear One, one thing that is permanent and never-changing is the love that is within you and around you. If you have not felt it within, know that it is there, patiently waiting for an opportunity to emerge and envelop you in all of its light. The love that surrounds you never fades. It may just not be obvious to you through the haze of your suffering. Can you part that fog and embrace this love that is ever-present aching to be accepted by you when you are ready?

So how can you best live a life in a world of duality and impermanence? Recognize that you are a being created in love. And the difficult times that arise in your life are there to show you that you can survive them and often be changed by them into a stronger and more compassionate person. So too, the duality of life, within and around you, exists to help you grow. It provides opportunities to accept the shadow side of yourself and to understand that you are loved in spite of, because of, and for who you are.

Dear One, walk in love throughout your day. And if it is difficult, extend your hand to Us and We shall help you navigate the rocky path upon which you find yourself. It is impermanent and will change, as does everything here in this physical world.

Understand that the intensity,

Be it joy or pain,

Will diminish.

Understand that you have the strength

To persevere

No matter what.

And understand that you are

A being of light and love.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Curiosity

How do you walk through your world?

Do you question what you see

With curiosity?

Or are you so frozen in your mind

That you can not see through the fog

Created by that repetitive way of thinking?

Dear One, are you so imprisoned by your mind that you cannot see past a certain way of viewing the world? Does fear cloud your vision enough that you do not pose the questions ‘Why’ or ‘Why not’? Are you stuck in repetitive thinking, unable to take a clear view of what is happening around you?

How do you move through your day? Do you assume that those you meet are a certain way because of past experiences? Or do you allow yourself to walk with an open mind, listening to your inner voice, your gut, your intuition? Do you take everything at face value or do you delve deeper with the acknowledgment that things may not be exactly as they initially appear to you?

The world and all of its creatures are constantly changing, in flux with the expansion of the Universe. All are in motion, regardless of the illusion of appearing static. If you could see life at the molecular or atomic level, you would be more aware of the constant vibration of all things. And movement allows for change, within and around you.

Dear One, forward movement requires motion. For this reason, it is helpful to you if you allow yourself to consciously take steps every day in a new direction. This could mean altering your daily routine with just a minor change, but enough that requires you to be mindful of what you are doing, or where you are going.

By doing this you are allowing yourself to move away from fear. For if a new direction requires your presence, you are forced to step outside of your mind where fear constantly holds you back. And as you make small changes in your daily routine, you will become more curious about what you see, who you meet or how you feel?

Do not assume that you are the same person today that you were yesterday, for you are not. Each day with its experiences changes you. You are stronger and one step further upon your path this day than the last. This is the same for all of creation and since all are connected, individual growth is felt by all.

As you begin to make small changes, allowing your mind to be more open, synchronicity will have more opportunity to guide you forward. It occurs more often than you realize. But as you allow curiosity to lead you forward, you will be in a more receptive state to be aware of the synchronicities in your life.

Being more aware of your place in the world, if only in a small part of it, will begin to shift you from that prison of your mind. Your senses will become more finely tuned as you observe the world and interactions occurring around you.

Becoming more engaged with your environment will open up more opportunities for you as you more consciously see the ebb and flow of life around you. It begins with mindfulness, curiosity and trust that growth comes with motion, if only the smallest step forward.

Do not think you know all that you need to know. Do not allow yourself to be imprisoned by the repetitive thoughts from your mind. Instead, observe the world, allow curiosity to move you forward and see how much you can learn by taking just a small step forward every day.

Change is occurring every moment of your existence. And this includes change within you, in how you see, or feel or respond to the world around you. Trust that you will be guided forward by a gentle hand. Understand that others are filled with fear as well and that it takes courage to move forward.

Make no assumptions

For what was true in the past

May no longer be true in the present.

Move forward with curiosity without judgment.

For what you see may not be all of what is.

Allow life to unfold and guide you forward.

Gently and with loving embrace.

Curiosity is what brought you here

And what will move you forward.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Question Everything

question everything

Alice In Wonderland http://www.pinterest.com

What is your truth?

Is it the same as another’s?

How do you know

What is truth

And what is imagery?

Dear One, what is your truth and how do you determine that indeed it is truth? Do you believe in the words of those whom you trust and therefore accept without thought that what they say is true? Or do you question everything, including these words, before you accept them as true? How do you accept something as truth?

Consider these questions as you continue to move forward upon your spiritual path. For indeed, you are strong enough and knowledgeable enough to accept something as truth even though others may not. You have the tools in order to determine truth when it is presented to you.

How? Your internal compass, your intuition, will tell you what to believe and what to discard as fabrication. The path forward includes honing in on what your higher self, your internal guide, your gut, is telling you about what you hear or see or experience. And as you continue to grow, you will recognize the feelings that you have when either truth or lies are shared with you.

With the human condition comes much emotion, desire for events to occur in a certain way, at a designated time. Feeling this way does not include the understanding of divine connection or divine timing which affect how and when events/interactions occur.

As you continue to grow, you will begin to understand this and begin to move through your day with an inner calm and peace. You will also learn to allow the intense emotion that arises to settle down before you make a decision on how to move forward. For like unfiltered apple juice, once it settles, clarity will become more apparent allowing you to see unencumbered by the chaos around/within you.

Dear One, all the knowledge you need is within you, for remember that you are connected to the Source and that connection lies within your heart. It is time for you to begin to trust yourself in how you feel about something or someone. But again, this is best done when you have allowed your emotions to settle down to provide more clarity.

As you move forward, we encourage you to question everything, yes, including these words. Notice how they make you feel and then decide if this is truth for you or not. Do this in all aspects of your life. Practice discernment without judgment. For each person has their own truth which is determined by their life experiences and where they are on their spiritual paths.

Allow yourself time to listen to others even if you do not agree with what they say. For they may still provide you with some insight on how best to move forward without judgment or blame. The human condition provides opportunity for personal growth and often much suffering accompanies this growth.

But as you become more aware of who you truly are and what your place is in this world, you will discover that you are able to view others with compassion rather than judgment. Do you see how this all works? Trust, faith and inner peace allow for more compassion and less judgment. And those on the receiving end of this loving compassion will be helped to find their own inner peace allowing them to continue the chain of loving embrace.

It begins with you. It always begins with you as you allow time for self-reflection. This begins a chain of events that continues forward on and into infinity. You are the source of love. You always have been. It just takes time to unveil this truth in the midst of such suffering and chaos.

You are never alone, for you are a part of the Divine with all the knowledge you need within you. Self-reflection will reveal your truths to you and provide you with the strength, courage and compassion to move forward in love.

For indeed, you are love incarnate

On a journey of self-discovery

Surrounded by love.

Remember you are connected to the All

In love

And you are never alone

Dear One With All of Thee.
