Collective Healing

angel-kiyoss.tumblr.com

As you help others to heal

So too, do you heal.

And as you begin to heal

So too, do you do the same

For others.

Heal Thyself

And help heal the world.

Dear One, all present in this world have suffered and have wounds that require healing. But understand that individual healing promotes collective healing. For remember, that all are connected here upon this plane and throughout eternity.

As you continue to grow and allow your heart to swell with love for self and others, you are opening the path for others to do the same.

Consider this. What is the end result of your approaching an adversary in love rather than in anger or fear? It is more difficult for them to respond in anger for the flare of emotion has been dampened by your loving response.

Emotions feed off of one another and accelerate if each exchange mirrors the other in anger or fear. It takes a strong desire to put a stop to these exchanges by reaching out in love, rather than feeding the fire of anger.

But in order to gain that strength, you will need to understand your own triggers and begin to heal as you forgive yourself and others. Once this process has begun, you will notice a more neutral, even loving response to another’s aggressiveness.

A potential heated exchange may fall flat if there is no engagement. And the ability not to engage comes from the personal work that you have done for yourself. Imagine the possibility of entire populations ceasing to ‘take the bait’ during an exchange with another. With no engagement, the potential dispute has been disarmed.

What would happen if you began to see adversaries as self? Since all are connected. All are One. What would happen if judgment was replaced by compassion? True progress would be made across communities, across nations, throughout this physical world.

But it begins with you and with your own healing. For how can you truly love another if you do not love yourself? How can you not judge another, make comparisons between yourself and another, if you continue to judge yourself?

Global peace, universal peace, begins with you and your being able to find the peace that resides within your heart. For, Dear One, we have told you before, that the Universe does not exist outside of you, but within. Within your heart, where your connection to the All is anchored.

And so, we ask you to do the work and begin to forgive yourself. Face the traumas, gently and with assistance if necessary. Scan your physical body and discover where you hold that trauma and begin to send loving energies to that area. Fill it with light so that it can be dislodged, transmuted and given to the Universe, to the Mother, as light, healed by you.

Dear One, notice where the fear anchors within your body. Perhaps you have an injury or an emotional wound. Rather than focusing your fears on this area, send it love instead. Caress that injury with loving energies and see it healed and whole.

Allow yourself to feel and acknowledge the emotion, but only for the shortest of times. Then send it love. Ask for help. Remember that fear is a tool. It is there to show you something that you have missed on your journey forward. Give gratitude for that ‘red flag’ and begin to release the emotion that binds the fear to your heart.

As you move forward, and you WILL move forward, for you are a divine being, capable of miracles, go inward so that you can share the healing with others. You are not alone on this journey, with this healing.

Indeed, you are here on a personal journey of self-discovery. But, Dear One, as you continue this journey, you are also in service to others and to the Universal Intelligence within you all. Your personal healing allows you to help heal this world and allows the expansion of love across infinity.

Do not forget that you are a conduit between worlds and most perfectly placed to do the work you came here to do. You are surrounded by those who wish to assist you on this journey. Ask for help and it will be given. Given in the best way possible to allow you to move forward with grace.

Celebrate the healing of others. Assist in the healing of the Mother. And understand that you are more connected, more powerful than you realize. And most definitely, worthy of the Universal Love which resides within you.

Move forward with grace.

Allow the healing to begin.

Ask for help and remember

Your connection to the All,

To all that is beautiful,

Light and dark,

In this world.

For you are now and always will be

One With All of Thee.

Can You Do the Work?

wishflowers.tumblr.com

It takes work, Dear One

To change your world.

And the work begins with you.

For how can you love this world

If you do not love yourself?

Dear One, you have so much power, so much potential to change your world. But let us begin by helping you to change yourself. Not in any major way, for indeed, you are One with All. But can you allow yourself to look at your reflection and truly and honestly say ‘I love you’?

There were so many ideas and beliefs that you were subjected to in your formative years that do not serve you now, in this time of transformation. We offer no judgment on the sources of these ideas for many believed they were acting in love. And many were passing on what they learned in earlier times before the energetic vibrations of this plane began to rise as they do now.

It would be most helpful if the ancestral practices inculcated within you and your societies could be altered to practices based only in love. Can you sit and reflect upon your immediate response to others or to emotionally charged situations? Have you acted in a loving way or have you perpetuated the misconceptions of societal rules passed down through generations?

Consider the visceral reactions you have had to protect yourself at times when it is not necessary. You live in a different world, at a different time that no longer requires such a visceral response.

Consider how you view others who do not resemble you in outward appearance or in culture. Do you see them as different and therefore not worthy of trust or respect? Or do you understand that you are all One and they can provide such depth to your current life if they are approached with love rather than fear.

Dear One, this is not meant to be a treatise on how to revolutionize your world. We are attempting to help you to reflect upon the reasons why you feel and respond the ways you do. Much of it has been the result of the human form, which is not a perfect design. But there is much you can do by increasing your self-awareness of your responses to certain situations. And to reflect upon why it is you have acted in that manner.

As the energetic vibrations continue to rise upon this physical plane, you have more opportunities to affect the outcome. And it begins with how you see yourself and your placement in this world. Are you willing to do the work to understand that you are indeed a being of light created in love? Capable of moving mountains through the power of your love.

If you are ready, then ask for help. For it is waiting in the wings, anxious to lead you forward to a most loving way of life. And through synchronicity, through your dreams, and through nature, you will begin to receive your opportunities for growth.

Dear One, be not afraid of what you discover about yourself. For once brought to the light, old wounds, old ways of being can be healed. Do not fall into the trap of self-judgment as you embark upon this journey. For do you judge a babe falling as it is learning to walk?

Understand that this lifetime is one focused on personal growth and self-discovery. This is a learning ground for you to realize that you are One with All despite the illusion of separateness given by these physical forms.

And once you can begin to truly accept your connection to all of creation, then you can begin to feel the love and reflect that love back onto the world. Rather than blame, consider gratitude for what lies in your path. Reflect each day upon your responses to situations and gently consider the reasons for those responses.

For we urge you to use gentleness with yourself and with others. Remember that you are a product of what has occurred to you up until this point in time. However, you are now discovering new tools to use to crack that shell of fear and judgment which have been so present in your life until today.

Honor the life you have lived. Understand that all that has happened in your life has been an opportunity for growth. No comparisons, for each of you has come with specific lessons they wished to learn. Open your heart and allow the pulse of love to fill it to overflowing. That others may also drink of this nectar that will help you move forward in grace.

Rest and tend this physical body. For it is fragile. More fragile in form than you are in spirit. For you are an eternal being and this physical path is but a small part of your entire existence. Use it wisely. Find the love that exists within and share it with others and with yourself. For change does begin with you.

You are capable

You are surrounded by help.

You can move forward in grace

And shine your inner light outward

For all the world to see.

Do the work, Dear One

And see how your world begins to change.

You are connected.

For you are indeed

One With All of Thee.

What of Justice

pinterest.com

Right versus wrong.

What distinguishes between

These two concepts?

Is it not in the eye of the beholder?

Is this a human or a universal concept?

How do you move forward

As an embodied being of light?

Dear One, much of the discord upon this physical plane comes from the differences in opinion of right versus wrong. It creates a tension that often accelerates from thoughts to words to action, often violence. It can separate loved ones from each other, cause intense suffering and hold this physical plane in lower vibration.

Are these the actions of a divine being? Is there a Universal code which polices actions in order to create harmony across the cosmos? How does an embodied spark of the Source move forward with grace through this sea of discord and suffering?

Let us be clear that the teachings of universal wisdom speak only of love. Not judgment. Not fear. Not justice. Only love. For love is all that is. And love inculcates every sentient being within the Universe. For all were created in love and have love within to guide them forward.

What of this human need for control, power and perceived justice? Does it not come from fear and the inability to see the connection of all to each other and to the Source? True power comes from love and only love. Anything else is but an illusion of power.

What this way of thinking does is lower your vibration by thinking that certain actions must be taken to maintain that illusion of power. Material wealth must be protected. More for another means less for you. An illusion of ownership is created of that which is in reality, only a holographic image.

You have been placed upon this physical plane which has abundance for all for the purpose of self-realization. Much of the disparity between individuals offers the opportunity for growth. Many have chosen their life situation to provide the lesson for another to reach out in love and compassion.

Can you, instead of judging another, see them in their true form, as a divine being? Can you hold another in light and in their highest vibration rather than in judgment? Can you see some truth in that different point of view rather than immediately judging it as ‘wrong’?

Like attracts like. But seeking out others with different viewpoints can accelerate your own personal growth. It begins with creating a neutral space, with seeing it as a loving interaction, and listening, really listening to why another feels the way they do.

The beauty of this learning ground is the vast amount of knowledge that has been amassed by all present here. Do not lose the opportunity to share this knowledge amongst yourselves by staying within a small radius of experiences. Reach out to those who differ from you. For each and every one of you comes from the same body of creation. And all of you are One.

Look to the Mother for guidance. See how she thrives by allowing diversity to exist among her charges. There is no judgment within nature. There is no right or wrong. There is only sacred life co-existing among diverse species. Each providing a unique component for the survival of the All.

So too, within the human form. The vast difference of experiences when shared for mutual benefit can increase the vibration of each other and of this physical plane.

Honor the diversity among you for much can be learned from the trials of another. Practice compassion and non-judgment. For indeed if all are one are you not only judging yourself? And know that every action causes a wave across infinity. Choose to create a wave of love towards others and indeed towards yourself.

Remember, Dear One

From where you come

That All are One

Loved unconditionally

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Come Forth in Love

Gloria McDonough
twitter.com

Emerge from your shell

Of fear and despair.

Break free of the chains

That prevent you from rising up.

Allow your vibrations to soar.

And share them with the world.

Dear One, it is time for you to break free of the old ways of being, the old ways of thinking, the old ways of reacting to your interactions with others. Can you begin to walk with an even gait, solid in its grounding to this world. But also attached to the higher frequencies above and around you.

For you, Dear One, are a conduit. A conduit between two worlds, one seen and one unseen, at least by the human eye. You have a very unique role in the expansion of the Universe. For you are a divine being incarnated in a human form during a time of immense transformation of creation, of the All That Is.

It is no mistake that you are here upon this physical plane at this time. Your role has been pre-ordained prior to embodiment. However, you always have free will and can choose not to follow through on your original plans for this physical lifetime. The choices you make will not diminish our love for you or the intense joy we shall feel when you return home to your natural state.

If you do not understand what it is that you have chosen to do in this lifetime, stop and reflect. Consider the gifts that you have been given. Do not doubt that you do have gifts. And they can be discovered upon reflection of what comes easiest to you.

For many, your gifts are just now beginning to emerge. The timing was not yet appropriate for you to blossom into your highest form of being. Be patient and be aware of the synchronicities of your life. A chance encounter, an offhand remark, the spark of a memory long forgotten. Any of these could be the catalyst to help move you forward.

Personal growth follows a unique trajectory for each and every one of you. Perhaps more specific experiences are required before your gift will become apparent to you. Worry not. For your time will come. It may already be here. Sit, reflect and offer gratitude for all that you have been given. For all, regardless of whether it is considered positive or negative from a human perspective. For all that transpires here upon this physical plane can be viewed as a path forward towards your self-realization.

Dear One, we ask you to focus your energies on raising the vibrations around you. They are indeed being raised already due to the natural evolution of the Universe. But because of your unique position as a conduit, your awareness and focus are helpful and needed at this time.

Be at peace with your personal life. View it from a higher perspective and make a conscious effort to see the beauty, to feel the joy that surrounds you. For life and learning are always in motion and always providing new opportunities to celebrate if viewed from the perspective of the divine.

You are a child of the Universe. At the same time, you are a divine being, capable of creating the world you wish to see around you here upon this physical plane. You have immense power and that power comes from love. The love which created you. The love which resides within you. The love which surrounds you. The love which you can share with all who cross your path.

Come forth in love. For this is your true nature and with practice you will find it much easier to respond in love and only in love. These are challenging times for you here upon this physical plane. But within those challenges lies the path to personal and Universal growth. You are ready for these times. You are capable of assisting in the transitions that are coming. And you can and will expand and blossom beyond your expectations.

Remember who you are.

Remember from where you have come.

Remember that you are not alone

Not forgotten or forsaken.

You are held in loving embrace

Every moment of your existence.

For you are indeed and always will be

One With All of Thee.

Authenticity

You strive for perfection

When perfection is already present

Within your divine self.

While on this human journey

Strive instead for authenticity.

In who you are right now

In this very moment.

Dear One, you are a divine being embodied in a human form for a lifetime experience here upon this physical plane. That divine being, created from a spark from the Source, is perfection seeking a path of knowledge. Knowledge to be shared with all of creation while your body rests and when you return home to the Source.

Many in their human form do not understand this truth and believe that perfection must be achieved in all that you do. This lays a heavy burden upon your human shoulders. There is a part of you that remembers life without form and desires to achieve the same experience while embodied upon this plane.

It is a challenge, we understand, since you are still unaware of the purpose of this physical existence. Just as you train your physical body with certain limitations, perhaps with using weights or running great distances in short timeframes, so too, your physical existence provides many challenges to overcome. To overcome as you journey on your path to self-discovery.

You have the illusion of being separate from all that surrounds you. Of being alone in this world. There are intense emotions which appear to rise and fall at whim. And there are the illnesses that overcome your physical form adding more limitations to your earthly life.

Dear One, you are living a dual existence at this time. A divine being in all of its perfection, connected to the Source. And a physical form presenting challenges previously unknown to that divine being in its natural state. It truly is an education of the highest caliber. Challenging, but despite what you believe, an education that provides invaluable knowledge no matter how you judge the outcome.

While embodied upon this plane, can you cease the quest for perfection? For perfection is already present within you. Instead, can you seek authenticity? Acknowledging the limitations experienced within this physical frame.

Each of you has chosen a specific lesson to learn during this lifetime, and so the stage has been set for that lesson to be provided to you. But in addition to those individual lessons, there is also a collective knowledge that is sought through the combined existence of all embodied souls upon this plane.

In order to move forward with grace, the first step is to accept yourself exactly as you are at this very moment. You have personal limitations and challenges, hurdles to climb and goals to achieve. It is not necessary for you to be like another. It is only necessary for you to be yourself, exactly as you are.

Yes, indeed, there have been actions, interactions, situations experienced which you feel were unwise, perhaps even cruel. Ones you wish to forget for how they made you or another feel. But Dear One, these are part of the learning process. And how will you learn if you do not stumble, perhaps even fall on occasion? Know that we are always there to lift you up, shake off the dust and encourage you to continue.

Can you accept who you are at this very moment and move forward from that starting gate? Can you accept your imperfections, your vulnerabilities, your limitations and still move forward with grace? The point is to continue the journey with compassion for yourself and others. Putting on that mask to disguise your true self is a tiresome and unnecessary act.

Can you instead honor who you are in this moment? For knowing who you are on this journey is the first step to living with authenticity. Perfection within a human form should not be a goal, for it will always appear unachievable and require a false presentation of who you are.

But authenticity can be achieved easily with acceptance and grace. It allows for the possibility of change to overcome imperfections or vulnerabilities. But it also allows you to relax into your form. This is who you are in this moment. Yes, you may not see the person you wish to see in the mirror each morning. But change and growth are possible. And with that growth comes the knowledge you came here to learn and to share with the collective.

Perfection, as you define it, can never be achieved. For it is an illusion. There would be no point for you to continue this physical journey if perfection was achieved. But authenticity is attainable and the path to non-judgment, compassion and unconditional love. For accepting your own imperfections will allow you to more easily accept those imperfections in others. You are all teachers for and students of each other as you exist here upon this physical plane.

Add to that the higher energies now appearing to lift you up. Dear One, there is so much help available to you. Success is guaranteed, no matter what occurs. For every moment of your day, you learn more about yourself. Can you accept those aha moments with gratitude and grace?

Be true to yourself

Accept who you are

And feel the burden lifted.

You and all you see

Are here to learn from,

And to teach one another.

With grace and with love.

It is possible.

Be authentic in who you are

And see how your life changes.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Lessons from My Blueberry Patch

Today

A more personal post

About the farm

And my blueberry season

This year.

The heat index may be inching towards 100 degrees, but the signs of fall are already here. My ornamental cherry tree has leaves that turned yellow which are beginning to float to the ground. The tobacco farmers around me are in harvest mode. They are always revving up as I am slowing down.

My blueberry season is officially over usually by mid-August. What’s left on the bushes is for the local fauna; the bees, birds, deer and any other critters who roam through the blueberry patch. I still go out to pick some berries for freezing, but the pressure is off. I’ve done my best.

Being a blueberry farmer has taught me so much. Humility, gratitude, generosity and acceptance of what happens. I have been reminded so many, many times that I am not the one in control. A way of thinking that puts so much burden on my shoulders, since I think it’s all up to me. So, learning this lesson, though humbling, is also freeing. Knowing that there is only so much that I can do.

Every day I walk around this land and give gratitude for all that I have. For being able to live here and steward this piece of land that I love. I thank all the earth spirits for teaching me how to live in harmony with the Mother. And over the years, I have noticed more and more the gifts I have received through a synchronistic relationship with Her.

Though I haven’t yet mastered easily moving through life this way. I still worry in spring if the number of berries, pickers and buyers will all overlap in perfect harmony. Despite my worries, it always does. What a stubborn creature of habit I am, with my spring worrying. You can set your calendar to the time when that nagging feeling begins to show up in my mind. Perhaps next year will be the year I cease this futile exercise in emotional self-doubt. I always hope for that.

But like many businesses, COVID has had its effect on me these past two seasons. With many of my buyers closed down, my orders were cut in half.

But here’s how the synchronicity works. The first summer of COVID, one variety of blueberries that I have, about 30% of my crop, didn’t produce any berries. I was in awe of them choosing that year not to produce. The vendor I bought those bushes from warned me that on occasion one of the two varieties I have may not produce one year. And so, I had fewer berries that year, but I didn’t need them anyway. Rest, dear bushes, for this season. A perfect time to do so.

I also lost many of my seasoned pickers due to COVID. A big lesson for me. How do I get the berries off these bushes for the buyers that want them? Somehow it all came together. And what I learned was that I had to meet people where they were. I had to grow and adjust myself as I was looking at a different way for the season to evolve.

So instead of my seasoned pickers, I had some very interesting people come up the driveway to pick. An older man, painter by trade, who was on disability and who needed a break from the rigors of climbing ladders. His son, who arrived in cowboy boots, cowboy hat, with a radio in his back pocket playing country music as he picked. A master gardener, who studied herpetology, and also had a medicinal herb garden at home. Something that came in handy for me, as I came down with a respiratory virus near season’s end.

Two young brothers, one legally blind who relied on his older brother for much. I don’t know how he did it, but he picked blueberries throughout the season, putting his face right up into the bushes. Every time my dog showed up in the row they were picking, they would both start singing ‘Ghost Dog’. Was it from a video game or TV show? I don’t know. But I told them that I would always hear that tune in my head when I thought of them.

A young woman who has had a troubled life, be it self-made or created for her by others, I don’t know. But she tried her best to keep her spirits up by singing while she picked. And finally, one of my old pickers, back in the area again, came to pick and was a god-send as I tried to train all the newer hands in the blueberry patch.

I’ve always worked with the energy here on this farm. Raising it every day to the point that people who are sensitive can feel the difference. It’s a place for healing. Many feel as if they are bursting through a protective bubble when they leave and drive back off into the world beyond my acreage.

And especially this summer, I felt that everyone who came to pick needed to be here. For their own healing or perhaps for my healing and personal growth. Teaching me to meet everyone where they were. Acknowledging their limitations and my own and accepting that, as we all worked hard to produce what needed to be harvested. So not only did they help me get my orders filled, they delivered some lessons to me as a bonus.

Every year, the thing I’ve always loved about having a blueberry farm is the circular nature of it. I have berries that need picking to sell to my buyers. And my pickers need money to pay their bills and so they show up at 6AM every morning. We are helping each other and I’ve always loved that feeling.

For despite what we might think, we are cyclic creatures. As the sun rises, so do we. As it sets, we begin to wind down. We have our routines that coincide with the cycles of the Mother. And so, as I see the leaves begin to turn on my cherry tree, I understand it is time to welcome autumn and all the joys it brings.

I’m looking forward to a quieter time. Not having to rise at 4:30AM and go to bed before the sun sets. But I am someone who needs to stay busy. What will I do now to live a purposeful life? I have no idea. But whatever it is, I’m certain there will be lessons involved.

Changes

ramblingsofazealot.wordpress.com

Within and around you

Are occurring

Every moment of your day.

Small adjustments,

Glimpses of wonder,

Awakenings beginning

Through a deep breath.

Nothing is static.

Everything is in motion.

Everything.

Dear One, do not despair that all is the same this day as was yesterday. For changes have occurred. To move you and this earthly plane forward. Gently, quietly and purposefully. The healing is occurring with each breath that you take. Tiny shifts in consciousness bringing you closer to the realization of who you are and of what you are capable.

You are being carried along a current of change as the energies of this physical world, of the entire Universe, of all realms, expand because of you. The contributions you have made, along with those of many other beings of light are moving the consciousness of the Source outward and upward.

And since you are connected to the Source, you are being carried along, expanding and awakening to your own divinity, to the possibilities of what you can do. And as your mind slowly awakens, you must be reminded again of the power of your thoughts. Reminded again of your true energetic nature which affects this world and beyond.

You have become accustomed to looking outward through your physical eyes. But now we urge you to look inward in order to move upward. The answers lie within, where your connection to the All lies. Begin to use a mantra, be it I am Love or Om Mani Padme Hum, or another which resonates with you. And use this mantra to quiet your physical mind and allow you to journey inward, deeper within the Universe which lies within you.

For, Dear One, you have always thought the Universe was separate from you. A vastness which existed outside of you. When in truth, the path to it lies within your very being. The physical world and all you have discovered in your outward journeys is only an illusion.

For you to discover the expansiveness of the true Universe, your journey must go within, to the depths of the core of your being. What you begin to see within may not make sense to you, but you will begin to remember. There will be a sense of peace and familiarity the deeper you go.

Allow the changes within to occur with faith and trust in yourself and your connection to the All. We will continue to remind you of the wonder and source of your creation. Divine, sacred and one with All. Feel the peace of that truth resonate within you. Divine, sacred and one with All.

Dear One, understand that all which occurs within your life is but a stepping stone on your forward movement to remembrance. Understand that no matter what occurs, the outcome will bring you closer to remembrance. And understand that your guiding light on your journey is love and only love.

The light which you are glows brighter each day. Even if you feel despair, your inner glow becomes more luminescent. How can it not when the energies all around you continue to rise? And you are connected to these energies. Allow yourself to be lifted through the help of others who are reaching out to you as you read these words. Embrace the love which surrounds you and feel the warmth of it within your heart center.

Remember, Dear One, that love is all that is. Light and dark still come from the same Source. Allow the dark to be filled with light so that you may move forward with grace. Shine your light upon others to show them their path forward can be brighter. Love them no matter what they say or do. For the outcome will be the same. All paths lead home. To the loving heart of the Source. Of which you are a part.

Your destination is guaranteed.

Your path is determined by your free will.

No judgment, only love and gratitude

For your part in the expansion and awakening

Of the All That Is.

You have come so far, Dear One

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Relationship and Reciprocity

fineartsamerica.com

Each of you has a gift to share

With each other

With the world

In gratitude,

In service,

Connected through your divine nature.

One With All of Thee.

Dear One, the natural extension of your divine nature has you sharing your gifts with the world, with each other. In gratitude and in service. For all of you are divine in nature. All of you speak the same language. The language of love and connectedness. For remember you all were born of the same Source. One With All of Thee.

This human condition is challenging for the illusion of separation it continues to press upon all of you. Some of you have awakened enough to understand the divine nature of all of creation. But there are so many others who have forgotten who they are and from where they came. This is where your service and gifts can help others and the world.

For this physical world is in need of raising its vibration. It is time for the coming changes and they will be much gentler for all if the energies of this physical plane continue to rise. How do you do this? You maintain a positive and loving attitude throughout your day. You begin and end your day in gratitude for the abundance which surrounds you. And you see the divinity in all that lies before you.

We have spoken before of how fearful thinking can lower the energies of individuals and those around them. It is time to jump across the crevice of fear and reach the other side of love and faith. Remember that you live in an illusion. Created by your physical minds. Serving a purpose, indeed, for your own personal growth. But, in truth, many of you have reached the point of no return.

There is no going back to believing the illusions that have brought you this far on your journeys. They have served their purpose in helping you to grow. And now you can help serve others by holding them in the light which they are but cannot yet see. This is the gift you can give to them.

Reciprocity is an important concept on your divine path. Ask permission before harvesting, before taking from another sentient being. Take only what you need and offer gratitude for that which is given to you. Return the gift by honoring the giver and paying it forward to another. Live a life of love. Show others how to live by example, rather than through words.

For words are not the universal language. They were created to help you reach this point in your growth cycle. Now, energetic transfer is the language to use. Through loving thoughts and loving actions. Others do not listen well, as their minds are not yet trained to be quiet. But they can and do feel the differences in energy which surrounds them. Even though they may not yet understand. They feel it and move closer to remembering who they are through every loving relationship they encounter.

Dear One, you have such power. You have grown so much, come so far. Do not despair of the chaos you see around you. Understand that changes are afoot and all is occurring as need be to accelerate these necessary changes.

Understand that legions of light beings continue to descend to this physical plane to help. Understand that they are guided by your light shining brightly. Showing them where they need to land in order to be of the greatest help. Honor them in their efforts to make these times as gentle for you as possible.

Shine your light as brightly as possible. Remember as we have told you before that you are the conduit between worlds, the seen and the unseen. And this is one of the ways that you are serving the Oneness. By shining your light to show your fellow divine beings where you are and where they are needed the most.

Reciprocity in relationship. Do you begin to understand how this works? Not only in your own physical plane, but across realms. As all are working together across the Universe to help with Its expansion and growth. How wondrous it is, this connection between and among worlds.

You are loved beyond measure. And you are capable of sharing that same love, unconditional love, with all who come before you. An endless reservoir of love lies within your heart. Use the power of being a conduit by sharing the higher energies with this world. As they move through you they are transmuted to be of a more gentle vibration for others to feel. Just as a babe learns to walk with your help, so too, do others learn to fly through your sharing of energies from above.

Blessings to you, Dear One, for the work that you are doing. Understand that it need not be on a grand scale. For the connection you have with others combined creates a wondrous force of loving energies. To help this world and beyond.

Shine your light

Share the love of the Universe

Throughout your day.

Ask for help and give gratitude for help received.

For your call is always heard.

Your light is always seen.

For you are Divinity incarnated.

Joined in love with the All That Is.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Being of Light

Ascension @Etsy.com

That you are.

Can you accept your divinity?

Or do you shake

In the shadow of unworthiness?

Unaccepting of your true nature,

Unaware of the power of your service

In this world and beyond.

Dear One, Thee are The IAM, IAM. Thee are The IAM. There is no need to deny this truth any longer. For in your denial, you lose the power of any acts of service you might choose. Accepting this truth does not require arrogance. Just quiet acceptance, humility, compassion and love.

We have talked of perception many times. Your thoughts color how you see your world. Your past may still linger within your mind, within your body holding you captive in fear. The healing for you can be difficult for the memories remain of past torments and pain.

But there are more memories embedded within you. And these are the memories of being held in light while in your natural state prior to embodiment. A state of love and connection. These memories live within your heart center and can be reached through meditation and quiet reflection.

It is the pain of past suffering and loss that holds so many of you down. And we say to you, it is time for you to soar above these binding thoughts. How does one do this? Sit quietly, raise your arms above your head, palms together, slowly separate, palms out and bring them down around your sides. This creates a divine circle of love and safety around you as you begin to meditate.

Focus on your heart and allow it to beat in synchrony with the Universal heartbeat. You say you do not hear it but in truth, it is innate within you. It is a part of who you are. Listen. Trust the memory of this which resides within you.

Begin in your heart center and focus on your breath. Then begin to raise your focus higher within your body with each breath. Slowly, quietly, move your attention higher and higher until you reach and move through your crown chakra. Think or quietly repeat the mantra ‘I AM’ and mix your energies with those above you. Then bring them down into your body, through your chakras, out the soles of your feet and down into the Mother. Then draw up the Mother’s energies through your body and out your crown chakra.

You, Dear One, are the conduit between heaven and earth. Only embodied souls can mix both higher astral frequencies and the lower earthly frequencies. And these are mixed through this exercise, through your physical body. Combining and evening out the discord between the physical and the astral. You are the lightning rod, the catalyst for change.

Allow this light to heal your physical body as it pulses up and down your energetic centers. As you advance you can begin the exercise in your heart center and send energies in both directions on the outbreath. Returning and mixing within your heart center on the inbreath.

You are the IAM. Can you begin to understand the importance of your presence here upon this physical plane? Yes, you have come for your own personal growth. Lessons abound throughout your life. With synchronicities bringing you together with these lessons and guidance of how to be of love throughout.

But you are also an integral part of the healing of this physical plane. Of the expansion and growth of the collective consciousness. The path to Oneness is simple. It is through love. But the complexities of how all of creation, seen and unseen, interact is unfathomable for the human mind.

Even in the unseen world, beings in different realms do not hold the key to complete understanding of their existence and beyond. However, they are more aware of the power of love, the existence of love and being surrounded by love. Never alone.

Dear One, your service to the All is unique and most important as the Universe begins to expand outward and upward. You are a being of light whose strength and connection will pull you through.

Have faith in yourself

And in the role that you play

In this wondrous, ever-changing Universe.

You are the IAM.

Wondrous being of light.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Pay Attention

startwithabook.org

To your dreams

To what is around you.

See, really see, the faces of others

And be aware of

The delights of nature

All around you.

Dear One, allow your senses to heighten as you continue to grow within this physical frame of yours. Dampen the mind and allow yourself to feel, to see, to smell and taste, to hear what is occurring around you. Include the sixth sense, that of intuition, as well.

The mind, though a valuable tool on this physical journey, has overpowered the rest of your physical form. And by doing so, it has prevented you from experiencing the many delights provided to you on this physical journey.

So many of you move quickly past exquisite bouquets for the senses. You miss these delights because you are held captive by your mind. Living either in the past or the future. Can you become more aware of what is occurring around you? For while your mind tells you all is serious and oppressive, the world around you is blooming with joy and beauty.

When you interact with others, do you see, really see them? Or are you wondering, what do they think of me? Are you already composing your response to them before they even finish speaking? Do you view their physical appearance critically or with compassion and reverence? Those facial lines, that gray hair, that limp. Are these perceived imperfections or badges of resilience and courage for weathering many storms during their lives?

The mind was designed to be used for navigating this world, solving problems to preserve your lives during times of duress. But throughout your evolution, it has morphed into a vehicle of critical judgment against others, those unlike you. When in truth, the diversity among life here upon this plane is one of the greatest gifts you have been given.

Why would you wish to remain stagnant among those who think, live and believe the same as you when there is a plethora of diversity available to you? Yes, there is comfort in similarities. But is there growth? And does not the repetition of sameness dull the senses, as your mind assumes you know and understand what lies before you.

Is this not a learned arrogance of the mind enhanced by not really seeing and experiencing what is around you? Dear One, it is time to shake your world awake, to break those bindings that have held you captive for so long. Has this brief interlude of solitude been enough to open your eyes to the world around you? Can you approach re-entry with a fresh outlook, seeing the details always there but missed by your hurried pace in the past?

What delights do you experience every day? Can you keep a daily list to remind yourself of the simple pleasures of your life? What lessons can others teach you about yourself? What knowledge can they pass onto you if only you would pay attention to their entirety of being? What you may previously have judged as a flaw may suddenly reappear to you as a strength and teachable moment for you.

Dear One, dampen your mind and humble yourself before others as you see them for the divine beings they are. Make no comparisons, either positive or negative, between yourself and others. For you also are a divine being filled with strength and power. Reflect upon how you have used or perhaps not used that power in service for the highest good.

Once again, we tell you that each of you has been given the most perfect gift and placed in the most perfect situation to use that gift in service. If you struggle with naming that gift, just consider what comes easiest to you. For so often you think that if it is easy for you, then it is easy for everyone else. This is not always the case, Dear One.

During this time of great change and growth allow your senses to recalibrate to experiencing this physical world in the most beautiful way possible. And allow your intuition to become more fine-tuned to the unseen world as it guides you forward with grace.

Rest. Do not overtax this physical frame. Rethink what is absolutely necessary for you in this lifetime experience. For it may not require as much or what you thought so essential in the past. Remember you are breaking free of the chrysalis that has allowed your wings to develop. The time is coming for you to emerge, spread those wings and soar above the pettiness of the past.

This new way of being requires strength, courage and faith. All of which you have. The result will be a wave of personal growth filled with joy and gratitude. It is time, Dear One.

Take the leap forward

With courage and compassion.

You are more than capable.

You were born to do this.

Divinity expanding within the physical form.

How wondrous!

We applaud you for reaching this part of your journey.

The possibilities are endless.

You can do this.

Dearest One With All of Thee…………

These were my daily delights this week:

  • Frogs in my driveway culvert (I added more water since we haven’t had rain in awhile and I didn’t want them to lose their aquatic home)
  •  A toad sleeping in a six-pack of basil I got to plant in my garden (I removed the basil @ night when the toad was out and about and left the soil in the six-pack for him.) 
  • A fawn left alone in my blueberry bushes for safe-keeping while mom went off to feed (until my dog discovered it and chased the poor thing into the woods.)
