Vulnerability

Is being vulnerable a strength

Or a weakness?

Does it require surrender

Or resistance?

Dear One, the human existence is an opportunity to live in a world of dualities, not only externally, but also internally. The complexities created by human emotion combined with the illusion of being alone make it difficult to easily describe one’s personality. Perceived strength as described by your external influences may be mis-leading.

The perception of being alone feeds the belief that the more independent one is, the more strength and power one has. Relying on others is often perceived as a weakness and a liability. This feeds the illusion of lack, that more for you means less for me. Therefore, many feel the need to acquire many possessions which then require protection. Ownership and accumulated wealth are looked upon as a beacon of success in many areas of this physical plane of existence.

When you consider all that we have taught in terms of being one with all through the web of connection, the perception of singular success is an oxymoron. For if all are connected, the success of one individual means the success of all. But the success we refer to is more intangible than acquisition of possessions or status.

Dear One, the purpose of this plane of learning is to bring your innate understanding of oneness and connection into this physical existence. By laying aside your mask of independence and invincibility, you begin to lay the foundation of combining both worlds (seen and unseen). Your true nature is one of connection. You are a single cell in a universal organism of love and knowledge. It is impossible for you to exist alone.

This is where your internal duality comes into play. You intuitively know that you are one with all. And yet, you are encouraged and often respected on this physical plane for being independent and self-reliant. Showing any vulnerability is often seen as a weakness, when in fact, it is a strength. Can you begin to understand that asking for help, working within a community, sharing individual gifts for the success of the whole is your true nature?

Perfection and self-reliance are false indicators of personal growth. Understanding your connection with all of creation better serves you in your path forward. Knowing that your unique gifts combined with the unique gifts of another allows you both to reach heights neither could reach alone. Understanding that embracing your perceived imperfections in a physical world is a step forward. For these realizations evoke humility and self-love. And how can you love another in this world if you cannot first love yourself?

Dear One, remove the mask of invincibility you wear for others. Accept your imperfections. For when you can love and accept your own vulnerabilities, you can begin to have compassion for others on their path of self-discovery.

Personal gain is an illusion. The forward path is paved with opportunities to live with a foot in both worlds; the physical existence you now experience and the non-physical existence from where you came. There is much to be gained as you begin to combine experiences from both realms.

You, Dear One, have embarked on a journey of discovery that requires walking with a foot in both worlds simultaneously. This will become more apparent to you as you continue your forward movement. Can you lay aside your self-criticism and listen to that voice connected to the All, rather than that voice which parrots the illusions of the physical world?

Open your wings and fan away the winds of dis-content that harbor in your heart at this time. Make room for the joy which is a part of your true nature. Allow your true nature to emerge; delicate strength embodied in loving embrace by the All of Existence.

You, Dear One, are a magnificent piece of the whole.

Your glow accentuates the flame of existence across realms into infinity.

Release the joy that lives within you with every breath you take.

And light up this world with your own personal spark of love.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Where is the Peace?

where is the peace

circumpunktdesign.tumblr.com

Where is the peace?’, you ask.

It has not abandoned you.

It is still within you.

Dig deep and you shall find it.

The quiet pool of solace and reflection

Just a breath away.

Dear One, do not doubt that there is peace to be found. For it still remains, calm and refreshing. You carry it with you wherever you go. Pause. Take a breath and go within. The din of this physical world can be harsh. But know that silent pool of peace awaits your arrival for replenishment and healing.

As you continue to grow, the world will appear differently to you. You may seek out more solitude and quiet. Your senses may feel overwhelmed and overstimulated with input from this physical world. Do not despair, for there is solace within. Always.

If you do not have a meditative practice, now is the time to begin. For as you continue to grow, you will seek peace in situations that appear to provide none. These are the times when you can go within and find the solace which you need.

The more often you practice quiet times, the easier it will be to reach that pool of serenity in times of need. Begin now and find time each day to sit in quiet reflection. The more often you do this, the easier it will become to reach the depths required to go to achieve that peace which you seek.

The world in which you live is in a major transition. These are the times spoken of often in the past. There is nothing to fear, but there is much work to be done. And it begins with you. It begins with you calming that negative emotion which rises from your belly before you speak or act. For remember how the energy which you generate, be it higher or lower vibration, will be sent far and wide across the cosmos.

Dear One, if you are reading these words, you are ready. You have grown enough to begin the process of changing this world into one of a higher vibration. You have grown enough to recognize kindred spirits on this journey of remembrance. You have grown enough to be able to send out love during those trying times of existence here upon this physical plane.

Find those who seek peace and harmony in this world. Work together, support each other and know that your kind words, your thoughts of love and your transfer of positive energies to those in distress DOES make a difference. You are so much more powerful and have more resolve than you realize.

Be the instrument of change that you are. Work with others who are like-minded, so that you can lift each other higher than you could go alone. We are here supporting you with all our love. But it is time for you to raise yourself to the heights required to make the change.

Do not doubt yourself, Dear One. But do tend your human needs when your nerves are frayed and beginning to unravel. You are indeed a Divine being, but you are embodied in a physical form which has limitations and fragilities. Tend yourself when needed, ask for help, and when you are refreshed, you can do the same for another in their time of need.

You are loved beyond measure, Dear One. Know this in your heart. Do not let that mind of yours fill you with doubt, for you are so very special to us. Each and every one of you has our unconditional love and respect for this journey upon which you chose to embark.

Rest and replenish when needed. But never doubt your Divine nature and the strength and power which fill you now. Once again, we remind you that you were created in love, filled with and surrounded by love. That is all that exists. Do not allow your mind to tell you differently. This world is only a learning ground to enrich your soul and all the souls of creation.

Be at peace, Dear, Dear One.

Go within and find us there waiting to comfort you.

Feel the love surrounding you, pulsing through your veins.

It nourishes you and provides you with all that you need.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Hope

Hope comes from faith,

Faith that all is unfolding as it should.

Exchange your fears for faith

And see how your life changes.

Dear One, this life here upon the physical plane is an experiential life chosen by you so that you could learn and grow. There is no punishment, no judgment or retaliation for previous deeds. Your personal growth depends on how you view your life. And we ask that you view it through the lens of love.

Love is all there is. Love will show you the way forward. You are a courageous soul who chose life here upon this plane for personal growth. And this growth affects not only you, but others as well. Remember that you are all connected.

Choose love. Choose peace in your heart. Embrace what comes to you in this lifetime. Resistance will only bring with it more suffering and fear. Give gratitude for all that you have, for indeed, every perception of lack in your life can be replaced with multiple visions of abundance.

By offering gratitude rather than fear, you open up the channels for more abundance to come your way. The Universe responds to your thoughts and if they are filled with the perception of lack, then that is what the Universe will provide for you. Choose love. Choose gratitude. Choose faith that all is as it should be.

Send blessings out to all who are suffering. By doing so, you are helping to raise their vibrations and allowing them to receive more blessings and abundance. You have much strength and resolve, more than you realize. You have the ear of the Universe, waiting to see what it is that you desire so that it can provide. But come from a loving heart and not a fearful mind.

All is well. You are safe in this very moment and you are very much loved and looked after. As the Mother continues to go through the changes she must experience, you, Dear One, will grow. You can grow either in love or in fear. Choose love.

Dear One, there is a reason why you are here upon this physical plane at this very time. You carry strength within you which you have not yet tapped, for you do not realize that it is present. You have the capacity for such greatness. Reach down and retrieve that power which lies dormant in your heart. The power comes from love. The power comes from gratitude. The power comes from faith, in yourself and in the Universe.

If you reflect back upon your life, you will see many challenges which at the time appeared insurmountable. And yet, here you are, stronger and wiser with a capacity for forgiveness and grace. Can you begin by forgiving those with whom you felt much discord? Can you begin by seeing abundance rather than lack? For when you reflect upon this, you will most definitely see all that you have at this very moment. Can you begin by replacing fear with love, with hope, with faith?

All is well. Walk in grace with your head held high and your heart open. And remember how much gratitude is held for you as you partake in this experiential journey on this physical plane. You are not alone. You have not been forgotten. On the contrary, you are held in highest esteem as your progress is observed with loving eyes and hearts.

Dear One, remember that you are part of the All. The true meaning of that cannot be fathomed with the human mind. But remember that you are loved beyond measure, that you are a shining light emerging more every day. Remember that you are a Divine being, one with all.

You, Dear One, have the strength, the power, the knowledge of the Universe available to you at this very moment. Claim it with love and share it with the world. For always, there is someone behind you that needs a helping hand. Just as always, there is someone ahead of you ready to extend a hand to pull you forward. You are never alone. That is impossible.

For you are One With All of Thee.

Sadness and Loss

Comfort thyself with the knowledge

That perceived loss

Is only a transition of form,

For energy cannot be destroyed.

Dear One, in this physical world, loss is perceived as permanent, without recovery or future connection to whomever or whatever you feel you have lost. But this is an illusion of the human mind. For all of creation is composed of energy, which cannot be destroyed. You may not interact in the same manner after the physical form is gone. But, Dear One, the energetic imprint, the life you perceived as lost, still remains as a loving entity around you.

For those who have had loved ones transition from their physical forms back to their natural state of pure energy, know that they are still close to you. Communication can still occur, just in a different fashion. There may be a learning curve for both of you. But the loving connection continues to exist and will be there until you are able to join them in the same state of being.

For those who grieve the loss of a furry companion or a part of the Mother, the same applies. The energetic imprint remains with you. Your companion continues to be by your side. The parts of nature you no longer can sense with your physical being, still remains intact, just on another dimension, at another vibration.

Continue to send love to that which/whom you feel you have lost. For your connection to all of creation is through love. Your true nature is one of love. You are a being of light in a physical form, on a physical plane for personal growth. As you continue to grow, this will begin to resonate as truth for you. Be open and receptive to a new way of being in this world. Allow yourself to interact with all of creation in new ways.

As the energetic vibration upon this plane continues to rise, you will be encouraged to adjust by raising your own energetic vibration. This is a new concept to many as the physical body vibrates at a much lower frequency. As you grow, you will better understand your true nature as an energetic being who is only cloaked in this physical form for a very short period of time.

Dear One, you are one with all of creation. Nothing exists on its own, for everything is connected as an energetic force. And energy moves freely between forms and dimensions. Think of water filling a pitcher, contained for a while, but able to flow out and become one with what it encounters in a different form. Not destroyed, just transformed; into vapor, into ice, or saturating that which it touches. It still exists, just in another form.

This life you lead is a dance, a dance between possibilities and worlds. Can you feel the joy of transformation rather than the grief of loss? Human emotion is certainly a part of this journey and we honor the feelings that rise up within you. Acknowledge them and allow them to surface while asking for comforting embrace from those who love you dearly, both on the physical and non-physical planes.

When you are ready, find that place of calm that resides within you. Reach out and bring in the joy that comes with transformation. In your grief, you honor those whom you feel you have lost. But can you then celebrate with them the new freedom, the new adventure, that comes with transition? You, Dear One, are not left behind. You are held close in love, encouraged to grow and to love even more fiercely than you have ever loved before.

Honor all who cross your path, be they animal, mineral or vegetable, for all physical forms are one with the Source. Understand the impermanence of form, of experiences, of anything that exists here upon this physical plane. What is permanent is love. It will exist into infinity, across dimensions, connecting all of existence.

Send love with every breath you take. View your life through the lens of love. And know that nothing is truly lost, only transformed. This is a plane of learning and expansion of who you really are.

You are Love Incarnate.

Contained in a physical form for now,

But able to transmute and transition

Through love and only love.

Prayer and Trust

prayer and trust

visualmelt.com/Wojtek-Siudmak

How do you pray?

Is it motivated by fear or by love?

Can you trust that the outcome will be

Exactly as it should?

Dear One, the world needs your positive input, your blessings and your support. Your prayers are always heard and are projected out into the ethers surrounding you and beyond. You are never alone, you are never abandoned and you are never punished for perceived indiscretions.

Can you begin to trust that your life, your world, is unfolding as it should in order to lead you forward toward your individual greatness and growth? This day we wish to guide you in how to put your most positive intentions out into the ethers. For many of you do not understand the workings of the Universe.

It begins with love and with trust that all will be well. It includes gratitude and understanding that all prayers should be ‘for the highest good’. Otherwise, since all are connected, the outcome you desire may come at the expense of another.

Can you trust that perceived set-backs are indeed the beginning of the path to greatness? How often did you wish for a certain outcome that never occurred? And yet, in retrospect, you were able to see how your desire would not have been the best course for you or for another.

The human perspective is limited and filtered through human emotion. Suffering is often the impetus for change. The human spirit is quite powerful, yet unrealized for its greatness. And suffering is a part of the human condition. For without personal challenges, your time here upon this earthly plane, would be for naught.

We say to you again, that love surrounds you, love supports you and love encourages you to reach higher than you thought possible. In times of distress, know that we surround you with our loving embrace and have not turned away from you. In truth, we are right there by your side, ready to help the moment you call upon us.

The words you put out into the ethers during prayer are not as important as the feelings you project. If you wish for peace, start the process by feeling peace within and projecting it out into the world.

If you desire healing for yourself or another, see the recipient of your prayers already healed. Send positive energies, see strength and power, rather than weakness, in need of help.

For although compassion is the motivation, seeing another as a victim surrounds them with negative energies. Instead, lift up their vibrations by seeing their strength and their personal power navigating them through their current challenges. Surround them in loving light, see them whole and healed, filled with love and peace of mind.

Gratitude, as well, projects out into the ethers a higher, rather than a lower vibration. Give gratitude for future events, as if they have already occurred. When you enter your vehicle, give thanks for getting to your destination and back safely. When you rise from your resting place in the mornings, give gratitude for a most wonderful day ahead. The ethers that surround you reflect back to you what you feel. If you walk in fear, you will see only fear. But if you walk in love and gratitude, your life will be filled with joy and peace of mind.

The complexity of existence is more than the human mind can comprehend. Even when you return to us, you will comprehend only as much as you are prepared to receive. Growth, Dear One, is a continuous process. It does not end after you leave your physical body. It only continues on another plane, a destination which you choose when you are ready to move forward again.

Dear One, we encourage you to walk through your day with loving kindness. Project out into the universe a world of love and joy. See others in all of their strength and power. And understand that all challenges are opportunities for you to realize the strength that resides within you.

Send blessings out into your world. Do this throughout your day. Give gratitude for gentle strength, love and joy in all who cross your path. It begins with you, Dear One.

See your own strength in your connection with the All.

Understand the power of your thoughts and feelings.

Rise above any perceived notions of failure or weakness.

You are a part of the Source of All of Creation.

Dear One, fill your world with light and love.

It begins with you.

Surrender

 

surrender

jimgantenbein.blogspot.com

Do not fight against the current.

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

The destination may surprise you

And be more glorious than you ever imagined.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What happens next may surprise you, Dear One.

Allow the power within to emerge in its gentlest way.

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

Shine, love and change the world.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Be At Peace

be at peace

Melody of Rain ~ Christian Schloe Digital Artwork

There is no need for chaos

There is no need for worry

For thee are in a purposeful life,

Able to shine thy light on all around thee.

Dear One, you have a radiance that emanates from within at all times. It may be clouded by negative emotions. It may be stilted by lack of trust and grace. But your radiance comes from within and has the ability to shine on all around you; envelope them now, with your radiance and your grace.

We remind you once again that you are a Divine Being. You, Dear One, are a Divine Being, one with the Source and All That Is. The web of connection exists in ways that you cannot begin to imagine from your human perspective. And yet, you trust the technology that connects you to others here upon this physical plane; invisible, yet capable of allowing you to communicate with others quite distant from you.

Is it such a great leap, then, to believe that there is yet another connection, invisible to most, which connects you to all of creation? As you continue to grow in this human condition, your ways of being continue to incorporate more of what is a natural state of being across the Universe. Your inspiration comes from other planes of existence, from memories of where you have existed prior to this incarnation.

Dear One, as you begin to better understand this connection, you will begin to treat all of creation with grace and respect; honoring the connections, the symbiotic relationship you have with all.  How you treat others, so you treat yourself. There is no other way, because of this connection.

Remember that the connection you have expands out from this physical plane. You have a connection with others with a higher perspective of life here and elsewhere. These others are sending you guidance every moment of your day. Yes, often it does not permeate that cloud around you due to negative emotions. But in those moments of quiet, those moments of peaceful existence, those moments when your mind rests during sleep, these are the times when guidance can more easily fill your being. Is it not then understandable why often your greatest inspirations come after you have rested your physical form?

If you can accept that there is an unseen world that surrounds you which is loving and supportive, you may begin to have more AHA moments during your day. Can you still that active mind of yours which fills you with only logical and often fearful thoughts? All is well, Dear One. You ride on a cushion of loving embrace, without even having the awareness of its existence. Trust that this is so.

Consider how you are influenced by events happening in places in your world you have never visited and yet, you are still affected. Then expand that thought beyond the physical, expand that thought beyond this immediate time period, including past, present and future. The complexity of existence is far too much to fathom with the human mind. But what we wish to convey is that all are connected and that love surpasses fear at all times.

For every fearful thought or event, there is a multitude of love in the Universe to counteract that fear. And as you continue to grow, you will become yet another who will help counteract that fear with the love you radiate from your inner Source.

You, Dear One, are such a vessel of love with great potential to change your world. It begins with you. It always has. And you always have had loving support from the unseen world. You are the hub of a wheel with love coming from each spoke that connects to you. You are a harp with multiple strings creating beautiful music. If there is one discordant note, the others are there to continue the melody in all of its beauty.

You, Dear One, are loved beyond measure.

You, Dear One, are powerful beyond your imagination.

You, Dear One, are securely connected to all of creation.

Honor these truths. Accept these truths and step forward with grace and love.

For you, Dear One, have nothing to fear.

Dear One With All of Thee.
