Surrender

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

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.

Patience and Trust

Do not hold your breath in anticipation of what is to come

Instead breathe deeply and slowly

Allowing yourself to align

With the rhythm of the Universe

Gently, calmly and peacefully.

Dear One, your human mind wants everything yesterday. You require prior knowledge of future events in order to prepare and plan. And yet, all that is needed is patience and trust, that all is unfolding exactly as it should. Have you not yet realized that you are part of a force much larger than anything that you can imagine with your human mind?

Until you allow yourself to become a part of the All That Is, your mind will continue to attempt to control your world in an unproductive fashion. Rather than trying to force an outcome, can you not instead allow it to unfold at its own speed? Do you not understand how each event is the result of many synchronous and simultaneous interactions; some of which you will never be aware; some which seem completely unrelated; and some which appear insurmountable from your human perspective.

You are a part of a wondrous matrix of life that spans the entirety of creation. Even so, your contributions are important and necessary, to allow for the expansion of the Universe. Where you begin is to become more aware of the connections you have with others, with Nature and with the unseen world.

Can you become more aware of the synchronicities in your life? Can you begin to trust your intuition, that gut feeling which gently directs you forward? Can you just pause, take a breath, and give gratitude for all that you have, rather than focus on your perceived lack in this world?

Dear One, start right now in this very moment. Take a deep breath and release the fears, the stresses and the worries that fill your mind. Go within and feel the connection of the soles of your feet upon the ground. Take deep measured breaths and breathe love in and out with each inhalation and exhalation. See the visions before you on that screen that exists just behind your eyes. You say you see nothing? Look again. For it is not just blackness, but tiny points of light, some colored, some static, some moving, but all connecting you to the all of creation.

Send your worries down to Mother Earth through the soles of your feet. Feel her strength rising up through your legs, supporting you and give gratitude to her for being there for you in ways you will never understand. For she is a part of you, as you are a part of her; a symbiotic relationship created in love, nurtured and empowered by love.

Do you not feel calmer already? Open your eyes and look at your surroundings. Can you see the points of light surrounding you, enveloping you in their light and sharing with you the knowledge that you need at this very moment in time?

You are one integral piece of the mosaic of life and all is moving forward exactly as it should. Can you trust that all is well and that your current life experience is one providing gentle growth, if you choose to accept the gift of it? Remember that your lessons are provided to you in numerous ways and it is your choice how many times you require them to come to you before you accept them and trust the results.

Dear One, you are surrounded by those who wish to help you move forward in the gentlest of ways. These are your unseen helpers coming to you in many forms as they attempt to get your attention and gently guide you forward. Every one of you has this and your life would be so much easier if you allow it to unfold in its most natural way, rather than trying to force a certain result. For remember, that your human perspective is very limited in seeing how certain events are very positive, when the immediate result appears so negative.

Trust and have patience. Accept who you really are and your place in the entirety of creation. Allow yourself the gift of help and assistance as you use your intuition and begin to notice the synchronicities in your life.

You have such potential.

You have such power.

You are filled with an unlimited source of love.

Stop, take a pause from the chaos around you and trust.

All is well, Dear One.

Dear One with All of Thee.

How Do You See the World?

Can you open up your heart

And see others as extensions of yourself,

All on a similar journey

Searching for love, for purpose, for inner peace?

Are you not One with All?

Dear One, do not forget that you are connected to all of existence and that all of existence came from the same loving Source. Awakening to the truth of who you really are occurs at different times for everyone. Rather than see others as your adversaries, can you see them as fellow travelers on a path back to wholeness; back into the arms of the Source?

How can you judge others when you do not truly know the purpose of their lives, the lessons they came here to learn, and the struggles they have encountered along the way? Instead, can you send them love from your heart and teach them how to love by example? Can you model the behavior you wish to see in others?

You still do not realize the power of love, the power of blessing the world and focusing the light upon the darkest corners of your world. We ache for you when we see how you struggle, and yet cannot help you unless you ask us, for you have the gift of free will. Like loving parents watching their babes learn how to navigate their new worlds, so do we lovingly watch over you every moment of your day.

Dear One, each of you has gifts to share with others. Realizing what those gifts are is the first step. Sharing those gifts with others to help them is the next step. And understanding that you are perfectly placed, to share with those who need your gifts the most. Your actions, no matter how insignificant you feel they are, become powerful tools in affecting the lives of others.

Open up your hearts to all and understand that if you seek guidance or help, it is only a breath away. But also realize that you, yes, you, are the vehicle of help or guidance for another who needs exactly the help that you can offer. Remember that you, in your human mind, cannot fathom the workings of the Universe. This is by design, for the lessons would not be as powerful if you could.

You, Dear One, are the vehicle for change here upon this physical plane. But remember that your physical senses cannot show you all that is occurring around you. For there is much more to existence than what these physical senses can ‘see’. The time is now for you to begin to trust your intuition, to open your mind to other forms of communication between each other and between the worlds.

It begins with you and the way you move through your day. It begins with what kind of energy you extend out to others. Do you act towards another or do your re-act? Can you begin to calm down those human emotions and come from your heart in all that you do? This does not mean that you become involved in another’s drama. Indeed, it is best if you do not, and instead, send them loving support from the sidelines.

Your best practice is to keep your own vibrations high and not allow those of others to bring yours down. For just as this can happen, so can your higher, positive vibrations affect others and hold them up. It works both ways.

Choose peace, Dear One. Go within and feel the quiet that exists there as you connect with your Source. Leave the external chaos if only for a few moments each day. This is how you replenish and keep moving forward, being the loving entity that you truly are.

You, Dear One, are a gift to this world. Do not doubt that. Share this gift and see the gift of others as well. For each of you has a role to play in the forward movement of this world. Trust your intuition and those synchronicities in your life. Cease the worry, and trust, in yourself and in your connections with the unseen world.

As you continue to grow, you will begin to understand more how powerful you are and how you have that oasis of peace within you at all times. A place of respite and regeneration.

Love as you have never loved before.

It is your true nature.

Dear One with All of Thee.

 

Serenity Amidst Change

serenity

Chaos abounds around you.

The currents of change are stirring the pot,

Affecting your sensitive soul.

Send peace into your world

With every breath you take.

Dear One, change fosters disturbance in the established ways of being. When change occurs, you are forced to readjust, to reassess and to go with the flow of movement. Forward, always forward. Despite the grim outlook, these are exciting times of Universal growth and you are here, in the physical realm, to help counter-balance the negative forces astir.

You feel helpless, without any power or direction, as if life is happening to you. And yet, you have more power than you realize. But in order to access and use that power, it is necessary to first go within to gather your strength through your Divine connections.

All that occurs in your life is painted by your individual perceptions. These perceptions can lead you to see your world in a positive or a negative way. The choice is yours. You also have the choice to add to the chaos or to help stabilize it through your own actions.

What do we mean by this? You can allow the feelings of despair to bring your spirits down, allowing the feelings of helplessness to overwhelm and paralyze you. Or, you can ask for help in using your divine gifts to help stabilize a world perceived to be out of control. You, Dear One, have the power to support change in a positive, loving and compassionate manner.

You are not alone in this process. Many unseen forces from far away realms in the Universe are here to assist in the changes now occurring on this physical plane. Understand that all are connected, which means that what happens here on this plane affects the All. For this reason, you are supported in ways you cannot understand at this time. But rest assured that you are NOT alone, nor are you left abandoned on your forward path.

Living in a physical world creates this illusion of separateness and individual gain. And yet, in your true state, as an energetic being, you are connected to all of creation. You are able to feel the vibrations of change, unseen by your human eyes, and you are physically affected by them.

In addition, you can affect others by the vibrations that you send out from your Divine essence seated within your heart center. This means that you can either add to the distress by outbursts of anger and frustration, or you can help stabilize the situation with a calm countenance emanating from your core. The choice is yours.

For you to contribute positive vibrations to this world, it is important for you to spend time connecting to your inner divinity daily, with quiet time in meditation or contemplation. This will help you to replenish your own energies, as you pull from the Infinite source of love. Surround yourself with positive energies and if you feel dragged down by chaos, take steps to free yourself from that negativity.

Shower and see the negative forces flowing down the drain. Surround yourself with Nature and honor her, bless her and thank her for the gentle breeze that clears your energetic field. Cleanse your internal organs with clear water, blessing it before drinking it. Rest and contemplate all for which you are grateful, all to whom you send love, and all for whom you feel compassion.

Dear One, this is a time to become an active participant. Believe in yourself and in the internal strength that you have that can be used for the common, the highest good. Trust that the Universe is unfolding exactly as it should. And accept the loving support from the unseen world which is working diligently by your side; supporting you, whispering encouraging words into your ear and holding you in loving embrace.

These are wondrous times, these times of change. Participate in a loving, positive way. Treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself, no matter how they approach you. For all are children of the Universe and all have a role to play in this time of change, even though you cannot see it from your point of view.

Trust, believe in yourself, in Us and in love.

Your capacity to love has no limits, for you are part of the Divine.

And the Divine is only love.

You are a vehicle for change.

Do your part with love and peace within your being.

All is well. You have all the tools needed.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Purpose

‘Why am I here?’ you ask

As you ponder your life

Upon this physical plane.

Look into your heart,

For that is where the answer lies.

Dear One, many ponder the meaning of existence, of suffering, of purpose, for being here upon this physical plane. There has been much discussion of this topic. However we ask you this, ‘Are you seeking the answer in your mind, or in your heart?’

Your mind can certainly respond with the scientific reasons for how this physical world has come into being. In fact, your science is beginning to delve deeper into the mysteries of life as physicists study further into the unseen world of particles, probabilities and quantum theories. You have made great progress on these fronts and will continue as your technology advances.

But do these scientific advances truly answer your question? They certainly validate what we have told you that everything is energy in constant motion. But they cannot begin to satisfy your search for the purpose of this existence. That is because the answer lies in your heart.

The heart-mind connection serves you well upon this plane as we have stated before; the mind allows you to move through this world in a most efficient manner. But it is the heart which continues to drive what you do with that knowledge. It is the heart which is the barometer for how well you have used what your mind has provided.

You have discovered ways of growing food in a more efficient, sustainable fashion. But have you shared these methods with parts of your world in famine? You have built the most deadly and accurate of weapons, but for what purpose are they being used?

Your heart is the rudder which steers you in the direction which raises, rather than lowers the vibrational energies of this plane. The mind is a tool for navigating this physical world. Your heart is the connection with all of creation.

So when you seek the answer to the question, ‘Why am I here? ‘, go to the Source of all of creation, that which lives within your heart. The language spoken here is not so much a language of words, but a language of feeling, of vision, of connection. And the more time you spend within your heart, the less you will require words to guide you forward. Instead you will have learned to trust your intuition, your visions and your synchronicities which guide you forward.

You will begin to allow the higher vibrations which emanate from your heart center to lead you in the direction you were meant to go, in order to fulfill your purpose here upon this plane. You will begin to understand that the answer to this age-old question is not given in words, but in the connection you have with all of creation. You will begin to act in harmony with the collective consciousness and worry less about the why. Instead, you will understand intuitively how best to contribute your part to the All; for you will begin to understand the integral piece that you are in the creative process.

Seek not the words to answer your question. Allow, instead, your heart to open and strengthen the connection you have with All That Is. As you do this, you will no longer need a verbal or written response; for the inner knowingness will answer that question in a most mystical way.

Dear One, the knowledge you seek comes from within your heart. Honor your mind for all that it provides you on this physical journey. But remember, that this physical journey is but a temporary state of being and that the knowledge in your heart will guide you forward beyond this physical realm.

You, Dear One, are a child of the Universe, gently cradled in a loving embrace by those who truly know who you really are. You are held in gratitude for embarking on this physical journey and are always connected to the Source, to the cosmic consciousness of being. Always.

Celebrate who you really are

And honor the connection you have with the All.

Remember what an integral part you play with every breath you take.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Do Not Doubt Yourself

doubt

Jiwoon Pak Moonset (2015) http://vjeranski.tumblr.com/

You have all the strength and resolve you need

To walk in this world with your head held high

With kindness and compassion for others

And to connect with those on your path

Who are there to move you forward this day.

Dear One, do not doubt that you are in the right place, at the right time, to share or receive the knowledge to be exchanged in this very instant. You are connected to the stream of consciousness, which flows through all of creation and allows forward movement, as lives intertwine. This is the energetic connection that permeates the seen and the unseen worlds, bringing them together in ways you cannot even fathom at this time.

You place such importance on this world which you see and interact with using your physical body. And yet, the unseen world is far greater in expanse and in how it affects your life. It is from these connective ethers that you receive the knowledge and gentle push, to move forward in a certain way. And it is from these unseen forces that you draw your strength, as you are surrounded by loving beings, every moment of your day.

You were created by the Divine and so have a permanent connection with the Divine. You, in fact, carry the Divine within you, as it is a part of your make-up. This part of you is from where all answers come. Your physical mind does indeed help navigate your way through this physical world. It may allow you to make scientific discoveries which make your physical life easier. However, it is your heart which helps you to use those discoveries in a manner that supports all of existence. It helps you to use these scientific discoveries with loving kindness, for the highest good of all.

Remember that you are an integral part of this stream of consciousness, as both a recipient and a contributor. You have been given unique gifts for this journey, which in combination with proper physical placement, will allow you to contribute to the All. Do not doubt this. For you must look broader, farther, than your immediate life, in order to understand the connection between all things.

Every interaction has an effect on the collective consciousness. It either contributes to the raising or the lowering of the energetic vibration of this world and beyond. This Universe is expanding and gently pulling you along in this process. Chaotic feelings and interactions may be due to the inexperience of being in these higher vibrations that are moving across this physical plane. It takes time to adjust to these changes and they are being made in the gentlest way possible.

Do not doubt yourself, for you will survive this day, this life, and continue on your personal journey, even beyond this physical existence. You are made of energy, as is the entirety of being. And energy is in constant flux, moving and flowing, as it interacts with its surroundings.

Dear One, you are a child of the Universe, one who is loved and gently cared for, as you make your progress on your individual path. Every day, you are offered the opportunity to learn or to teach a lesson. Your teachers can be any and all of those you encounter during your day, including Mother Nature, who is here to nurture you and provide for your physical body.

Do not doubt yourself, for judgment comes only from you. We offer you gratitude and love, and give you support when you call upon Us for help. Do not doubt yourself, and remember you are a Divine being. Do not doubt yourself, even in those darkest moments; for that is when the light within you will show you the way forward, out of that darkness, back into the joy of being.

Honor yourself and others.

Respect Mother Nature and all of her creatures.

And remember to dance to that Universal song which lives within you.

It plays continuously for you, offering you a joyful respite from your daily stresses.

Be of joy. Be at peace and know that love surrounds you always.

Dear One with All of Thee.
