Clarity

Open your eyes

Open your heart

And allow the truth of existence

To enter into your consciousness.

It begins with trust and love.

Dear One, you are being given the opportunity at this time to begin to see things as they really are. Can you set aside your preconceived notions about life, about others, and observe without bias, observe only with love?

For such a long time, many of you have moved through your lives with blinders on, with glasses colored by your bias, seeing only what you wished to see. The time is now for you to start afresh, as a young babe, and to view your world as if for the first time. For this world, the entire universe is not static, but forever moving, stretching and re-adjusting. It responds to you and how you see your world. Can you now see things differently and begin to make the changes necessary for all to live in grace and love?

The human mind, the human condition, supports a stagnant way of viewing life, as if it never changes. But consider how much you personally have changed and grown over your lifetime. Others do also, which requires you to look anew every day at those in your life, in your world, who affect the progress of this physical plane.

We have told you before how you create your own world, your own life, because of the power you have within, as co-creator with the Source of All That Is. Consider this as you look upon your world every day. Do you see forward movement or retreat and regression? Can you even make a judgment about this as your view is extremely limited, with the human perspective? You are unable and never were meant to see the entire picture, from the vantage point that we have, as we view the broader mosaic of life upon your plane.

Dear One, have you not in the past found yourself backed into a corner by your own actions, unable to gracefully move forward due to Ego? Can you not see that others often do the same and require your grace and forgiveness to remove themselves from their trapped situation? How much an act of kindness would allow these situations to resolve with respect and pride intact!

You, you, are the saviors of others in moments like these. You have the power to change the tone of the interaction by how you respond. Can you remember that this lifetime for you is a learning experience and everyone present in this world has some important lessons to learn while they are embodied in their physical forms?

Can you begin to act with love and grace at all times during your day? We understand that this is asking much from you as you navigate the challenges in your life. But can you change your perspective from seeing them as challenges to, instead, seeing them as opportunities? Rather than choosing fear as your immediate response, choose love and grace, faith and trust, joy and gratitude.

You may respond and say ’I cannot do this’. Perhaps the more accurate response is ’I will not do this’. Reflect upon this, Dear One. Ask for help in freeing yourself from the tendrils of fear as you move through your day. You still do not believe you are worthy of the power given to you. Believe us when we tell you that, indeed, you ARE worthy and it begins with changing your perspective of your personal journey.

Dear One, you are never alone. You are our charges and we are with you at all times. It is impossible for any other possibility because of the web of connection. Being in this physical world is difficult, we understand, for these physical forms suggest separateness, when the exact opposite is true.

Trust yourself and begin to change how you see your world. Act with grace and allow others the opportunity to move forward with grace. This might involve compromise, forgiveness or support for others in releasing themselves from a cornered position. You have been there also, Dear One. Instead of judging, offer a supportive hand and see how life changes.

You all are loved beyond measure, for your hearts are joined to ours. You are worthy of this love and are more powerful than you realize. Change begins with you, in how you choose to see and navigate through this physical world.

Choose love.

Choose grace.

Choose faith and trust in yourself and in the All That Is.

For you are part of an expansive consciousness filled with love.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Lars and the Real Girl

I recently watched ‘Lars and the Real Girl’ for the second time and once again was touched by the gentleness of this movie. For those who haven’t seen it, the movie is about a young man who thinks a blow-up sex doll is his real girlfriend. What is so poignant about the movie is how the town comes together and treats this temporary delusion of his with compassion; instead of mocking or making fun of him. At the suggestion of his doctor, they all go along with him and treat Bianca as if she were a real person. In one scene when Lars’ family is asking friends for support one outspoken woman lists the idiosyncrasies of the others in the room to make a point. We all have aspects of our lives that may not be considered normal. Really, how do you define ‘normal’ anyway?

What I hope for in this world is that more people will find compassion for others who are not the same as they are. That could mean differences in race, gender, mental or emotional status, physical appearance or financial status. All people need to be treated with respect, for we all have something unique to give to the world. But it begins with each of us, as individuals. It begins with having compassion for ourselves and loving ourselves for who we are in this moment in time. We are all wounded souls in one way or another. And once we give that wounded self the self-love for which it yearns, the healing can begin.

Can we begin to speak highly of ourselves and others and not use those negative terms we have used in the past? Can we find the gift in who we are, in our current state, and share it gently with the world? Can we begin to see the strength that lies behind that open wound? For the mystics say it is through the wounds that our light shines brightest. As far as I am concerned, we all have a journey to walk and each journey is important, significant and necessary for the growth of this world and all who reside within it.

So begin with yourself. If those negative words/thoughts continue to surface, then write a love letter to that wounded part of you. For much of that wound comes from the perception of not being loved. Believe in yourself and your role in changing this world. That role could be as a writer, speaker or activist. Or that role may be as simple as just being present in this world. For your presence does indeed make a difference; every moment of every day. Never doubt that. Let’s begin to change this world by being our authentic selves and sharing the gifts we have to give to the world. Are you with me?
