Recognize the Sacred

You are surrounded by the sacred

For all of creation is sacred.

Every moment in time,

Every interaction,

Every breath you take is sacred.

An expression of the Divine.

Dear One, in order to promote the change that is coming to this world, it is necessary for you to recognize the sacred in all that you see, in all that you do. If all of creation comes with purpose from the Divine, then all of existence is filled with the breath of the Divine.

The human mind, this human existence, has steered you away from the concept that all need to be treated with respect and love. You have lost your way because you have lost your ability to see the Divine in all that cross your path. Every molecule that forms every life form is an extension of the Divine.

This hierarchy of power which your societies have created leads only to dead ends. This external source of perceived power feeds only the Ego, but not the Soul. And the soul is where the true power, the true connection to the All exists.

Both Ego and Soul are necessary for existence here upon this plane. Each serves its purpose in the forward movement of the Universal Being. However, the balance between both no longer exists. One is aware of the connection between all of creation, the other relies only on Self to propel itself forward in competition and judgment.

Sacred connections abound in your daily life, be it with the Mother or with any of her charges. But many of you have forgotten the language to speak, to recognize the sacred interactions that are presented to you. This lack of communication, lack of recognition, has led you astray as you focus more upon individual existence and self-absorption.

Would your life not be much easier with conscious communion with the sacred? Would not acceptance of a community of kindred spirits help you discover and realize your purpose for being? Would you not feel more at peace surrounded by love rather than fear and competition?

It begins with you, Dear One, as you remember the connection, the sacred connection, you have with the All That Is. It has been so very long since life was shared in respect and harmony rather than in judgment and discord. But change is possible and reflection upon these words will help open the channels for change within your very being.

Can you begin to see that the creation of this world had a purpose, and that purpose was one of self-discovery for you and for the Divine that lives within you and all things? For every part of creation is another expression of the multi-facets of the Divine. Sacred existence with sacred purpose for being.

You, Dear One, are on the cusp of an awakening so wondrous that all of creation is watching in anticipation. All want you to succeed and come into better understanding of who you truly are and how you have always been surrounded by love. The time is coming for you to remove the blinders that limit your view of your life and that of your world.

Begin now, at this moment, with a breath of release, a breath of acceptance of the sacredness of your own existence. Do not think yourself unworthy, for how can someone who is a part of the Divine be unworthy?

View your life, your world, your surroundings from a different perspective. See the Divine in all who cross your path, in all that you touch, all that you eat, all that you see. Begin to see the sacred threads of existence that connect you to all of creation. For if you do this, you will change how you interact with your world from this moment on.

Walk in love

See your world through a new lens

Allow the sacredness of the All to surround you

And to guide you forward

With the acceptance

Of your own Divinity

Your own sacredness

Dear One With All of Thee.

The Shift

 

There is a shift occurring at this time

To help accelerate the growth of the Universe.

It begins with you and all here upon this plane,

For whatever lessons you learn

Move up through all realms

For the growth of the collective consciousness.

Dear One, be not afraid of the changes coming for you and your physical plane. For they are wondrous and shall accelerate the forward movement of all of creation. Understand the connection between and amongst all and how you shall contribute to the growth of the All That Is.

You are the manifestation of the Divine so that the Divine can experience Itself in all possible facets of being. You, Dear One, are an extension of the Divine and because of this all interactions are sacred. Keep this in mind as you move through your day. Remember this and give gratitude to all who appear before you, be they animal, mineral or plant. For all of creation is an extension of the Divine.

Contrary to what you believe you see, all that has occurred and is occurring upon this plane of existence is a means to an end. And that end is so wondrous, it would take your breath away, should you see it at this time.

Consider, Dear One, how your children often learn best when they are allowed to explore the possibilities and consequences of their actions. Indeed, some consequences do cause suffering, but is that not an important learning moment for them?

So too, for you, as you have been given free will to experience all the possibilities of life here upon this physical plane. If you were allowed only the lightened path, your lessons would have been severely limited.

Is it not through trial and error that you learn what best serves you and your world? Have you not improved upon your own personal creations, should they be creations of art, music or writing? And was not the final product of your creation the result of many perceived failures; failures which taught you much as you moved on to your next creation?

You, Dear One, are the creator of your world and much of your learning is a result of seeing where you do not wish to go, what you do not wish to do or say. The key is that you respond to what you experience in a loving, sacred way through creating a response of a higher vibration than what you have just experienced.

Do not forget that you are the brave soul who chose to be at the forefront of this process of manifesting the Divine in a world of duality. This is one of the greatest challenges for a soul who has had little experience with duality, for it does not exist on most realms. Add to this the challenge of being embodied in a physical form which gives the illusion of separation. Another experience many of you have not had in other realms where love and connection are more apparent.

You are an extension of the Divine, and you are rapidly awakening to the task that lies before you. You are becoming more aware of how the way of living up unto this point no longer works. It is becoming more obvious to you because of the awakening you are experiencing. And that awakening is accelerating and affecting more and more embodied souls every day.

Do not judge harshly those who have shown you what can happen when you do not treat all of creation as sacred. These souls are here to show you one side of the arc of the pendulum. Their presence has been necessary to encourage you to seek another way, a way that resonates with your divinity and essence of loving kindness.

Move forward and choose to help bring the arc of the pendulum back to center. For in this world of duality, neither extreme is optimal. Only when centered in perfect balance between light and dark, will the pendulum of experience upon this physical plane be in the most perfect position.

Dear One, be joyful for the shift that is coming, that is beginning as we speak. Be not afraid, for you are more powerful than you realize and the numbers of those awakening will grow exponentially. Reach out to those around you. Teach those who are just opening their eyes and their hearts. Learn from those who are further ahead on the path, here to show you the way forward.

You are not alone. You have never been alone.

You are but one manifestation

Of the many facets of the Divine.

Here to experience and share

All the lessons learned by you, the courageous ones.

Who chose a life in an unfamiliar world of duality.

Awaken, Dear One, to your true nature

And allow the shift to encompass all.

Dear One With All of Thee.

What is the Next Step?

Where do you go next?

What do you do?

How do you know

If you are on the right path?

Trust yourself

And your connection

To the All.

Dear One, you have experienced much strife and chaos in your world. It is exhausting to your physical body and to your energetic make-up. Frenetic energies swirl around you and immobilize you from forward movement. This is the time you choose silence, stillness and breath.

There are moments in time when the best, the only thing, for you to do is to be still and breathe. Trust that each inbreath is filled with the loving embrace of the Universe. Allow it to fill your physical being with its gentle caress. Allow it to soothe your frayed nerves, your energetic body, which is reacting to the frenetic energies that surround you.

This is not who you are. This is not how is needs to be in your life. For you are a Divine Being with a direct connection to the Source, to the All. And it is through that connection that you will find solace and guidance. It begins with your breath and with the inner stillness that is present deep within you. Shut out the noise and go within. Call to the higher beings who surround you with their love. Ask them to help you find the silence, the calm within.

Dear One, it begins with you. It begins with not accepting the chaotic energy as yours. It may surround you, but it need not affect you, for you are stronger than you realize. Beyond that chaotic frenzy is a calm that expands out into the Universe. And when you begin to feel the light touch of that calm embrace, pull it in and focus on that tendril of peace that connects you to the Eternal Being of Love.

Once you have allowed your inner peace to emerge, share it with others. Send love to this world, to all who suffer greatly because they have lost their way. And know that there are many souls out there at this very moment, doing the same for you. Some are from the unseen world, from the realms of higher vibration. But many are also from this physical plane, who have awakened and are using their connection to you through the great web of existence. They are sending you loving energies from all corners of this physical plane.

Do not focus on the negative, on the chaotic events that are occurring in your life, in your world. Reach out and focus on the lifeline of love which is extended to you every moment of your day. For you are not alone, you are loved unconditionally, and you are strong enough to take another breath and connect with your true essence.

Can it be that simple? This world appears so complex and resistant to change, resistant to accepting love as a guiding light for the forward path. And yet, change is possible. Change is occurring and you are an integral part of that process. For it is time for you to join those who send out loving kindness throughout their day. Do not disregard the power of this simple act.

The awakening has begun and with it, all are being challenged to brush aside the heaviness which surrounds your world. Light the path by allowing your internal light to shine brightly as you begin to trust the inner strength which comes from your connection with the All. And once you begin to trust yourself again, use the gifts that you have been given to continue to foster the change that is occurring.

All that you do, all that you say, all that you think, if it comes from love, will be more powerful than any amount of perceived earthly power. Joy comes not from personal gain of earthly goods or status. Joy comes from something much simpler, which exists in abundance for all. Joy comes from love, from seeing the beauty in all things, and feeling the peace of your connection with the All.

Trust in yourself

And in your connection

With the All That Is.

Use that connection

To be a conduit of love

For all who cross your path.

Begin with yourself

And expand outward into infinity.

Be of love,

Dear One With All of Thee.

The Awakening Has Begun

You are on course

To expand your consciousness

And to continue to awaken

To your true nature.

Empowered with love

And through love.

One with All of Creation.

Dear One, the process of awakening has been occurring for many years across this plane. The purpose is for all of those courageous enough to embody at this time to become more aware of their true nature. You are already enlightened beings who were willing to give up that memory for a short time so to learn and grow here upon this plane. In doing so, your enlightenment has expanded and allowed the collective consciousness to grow through you and your experiences here upon this physical plane.

As the shift begins to quicken, so too will your opportunities to see your life more clearly. You will begin to look through your heart rather than through your mind. Both are necessary in order to exist here upon this plane, but the heart has been dormant long enough on your journey forward. By opening it, you will experience more freedom in your daily life and more clarity in your interactions throughout your day.

This is a time that has been anticipated for eons as you have slowed your forward progress in past generations. But the time is now for you to better understand who you truly are and the true nature of your existence here with the many lessons provided you in this lifetime. The purpose of these words and the writings of many others is to plant seeds to help you to move past your fears and move into loving relationship with the All That Is.

As the shift continues to accelerate, the sensitivities of many will be tested as the spiritual climate upon this plane continues to change. Many are not ready or prepared to move forward and will wish to slow down the progress. Others may appear to be doing this but in reality, are playing a role that they agreed to play in the expansion of the collective consciousness. Both groups require your loving attention, for judgment will not suffice.

Love supersedes fear, is more powerful than fear, and when expressed with pure intent will help greatly in this forward movement. How another responds to that gift of love you offer does not matter to you. The important task is to create a climate of love across this physical plane as you continue to open your heart.

Love will brush away the mist that has been created by fear so that you may see more clearly. That which you imagined so powerful will shrink in size as you see its true nature. The movement is not to eradicate dark completely upon this physical plane. For this plane exists in duality and so both light and dark will continue to coexist. The difference will be in the neutrality between both as you disempower the fear and darkness that has chained you for so long.

In time, you will be able to observe with detachment any attempts fear makes to ensnare you. Instead of feeling the rise of fear in your belly, you will be able to send out love from your heart. This will shed light on the darkness and disempower it as it attempts to take hold on you as it did in the past.

This process includes the darkness you feel within your own self, as all have the duality existing within them. Accept that shadow self and send it love. Reflect upon how it may have served you in the past and how it might serve you in the future with some alteration and moderation.

You, Dear One, are poised to take flight as you have not yet experienced on this physical plane. Embrace these changes that are coming. Embrace the love that surrounds you. Embrace the love that fills your very being. And understand that no offering of love is too little or too late. For remember that time truly does not exist but in your mind.

Be of love.

Be of love.

Be of love.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Community

What is your community?

Is it seen or unseen,

Real or virtual,

Supportive or judgmental?

What is your community

And does it serve you?

Dear One, you are never alone and each of you leans toward community because that is your true nature. Whether or not you are conscious of your connection with the All, being in community reminds you of it. And there is no prescribed community to which you must belong. It can be with your natural surroundings or with the unseen realm, particularly for those of you who are very sensitive to your environment.

You are drawn to community and create one which best serves your current need. For there is a part of you which remembers from where you came and it feels more natural to be connected to other sentient beings, seen or unseen. And as you change, as you grow, these communities which you seek will also change, for each serves you in a different way.

The question which needs to be asked is How are you served by your community? Does it allow and encourage you to grow, or does it try to steer you onto a path that does not resonate with you? Does it support you in your attempts to be your authentic self? Does it comfort you when you struggle through your challenges? Does it allow you to stretch and grow without limits?

Dear One, as the energy continues to rise here upon your physical plane, your process of awakening will accelerate and many will feel the need to be among those with higher vibration, with positive outlooks and with compassion for all. Many will seek out more time in nature or in meditation remembering a feeling of connection to all of creation.

As you continue to grow you may become aware of limitations or behaviors in others who no longer serve you. Do not judge them. Instead, bless them for their presence in your life up to this time. Reflect upon the lessons each of them has brought to you. For at another time, in another place, a commitment was made to serve you on your personal journey with these lessons.

So too, you are in the lives of others to provide a lesson pre-arranged from an earlier time. When first discussed, the intent was pure in the lesson to be given. However, often, the attempt to serve that lesson in the physical realm is more difficult than originally realized and it may be delivered more harshly than planned. Bless those who have served you these lessons and move forward in love and gratitude.

Dear One, as you observe your world, understand that lessons abound with every interaction. Can you surround yourself with those who understand this with compassion and without judgment? Remember that this physical realm is a learning ground. That is its main purpose for you and for all who reside here.

Tools have been given to you to help with this learning process. Mother Nature is present to comfort you in times of need. And always, you have the support of those from the unseen realms to guide you forward. Even when you feel there is no community which suits you, there is love surrounding you from sources yet undiscovered.

You are in community with all of creation at all times. Other communities which you choose as you travel your path will fill a need or teach a lesson for a short time. But do not be afraid to seek out those which serve you best at any particular time of your life. And should you choose to change your immediate environment, remember to hold the past in gratitude, forgiveness and compassion.

You, Dear One, are awakening and your vision will continue to clear and show you that to which you have been blind in the past. Embrace your new way of being and do not judge those you may see in new light. For remember, that all who are embodied here upon this plane are kindred spirits on their own journeys of self-discovery. And all had the courage to come to this challenging environment to grow and to contribute to the collective consciousness with the lessons learned.

Walk in peace and non-judgment

Surround yourself

With those who offer encouragement for self-discovery.

And hold others in gratitude and compassion

As they move forward on their own personal journeys

Back to the Source.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Surrender

Can you release and let go

Of control and expectation

Of how things need to be?

Can you instead put yourself

In the hands of the Universe?

And allow things to unfold

In the most sacred of ways?

Dear One, do not forget that you are a child of the Universe, loved unconditionally and gently guided forward each moment of the day. Even though you feel that an event should occur in a certain way at a certain time, it may not be in the best way. Do not forget your sacred connection to all of Creation and how the entirety of being moves in a gentle wave forward, in ways you are not able to detect.

Can you allow yourself to release the small-minded human thinking and allow the workings of the Universe to expand your life in ways you never thought possible? You have limited perception from your vantage point and cannot always know the best way forward. Instead can you surrender to whatever is to occur, knowing that in doing so you are allowing the flow of the Universe to go through you and lift you up. To heights never known before.

Change must occur, it is the breath of life. And it is sacred just as all of creation is sacred. You are a vessel of change and to best channel your part in this forward movement, surrender to forces much larger than yourself. You think you are alone when in truth, you are a part of a wondrous connection of loving energy that fills the Universe. These events that seem so dire are sacred as they move the All That Is forward in its evolution.

You came here for a lesson to learn, to help with the expansion of the Universe in all of its love and power. You are a part of this although this human frame continues to create the illusion of separateness. Can you lay down Ego and say ‘I surrender for I am a part of something greater than this’. Can you accept the fact that your purpose, your vocation, your calling will become apparent to you in the coming days, if you do not yet know what that is?

Understand the sacred reciprocity of life. With every breath you take, you share your essence with all around you. Do you share this in anger or in love? Can you receive all with gratitude knowing that something sacred occurred to you in this very moment?

When in distress, stop and take a breath. If you can breathe in for a count of 5, hold for 5 and exhale for 5. Allow this exercise to calm and connect you to the All. Understand that order can come from chaos. That often chaos is needed to alter a way of existence that would require more and more energy to maintain. Chaos helps shift into a higher vibration, a different way of being, which does not require as much energy and is more self-sustaining. But you often must go through the transition first.

If you feel you have been fighting something for a time, surrender to it and allow it to run its course. Surrender to whatever will make you a clearer channel of the gift you have been given. For indeed you have much to give, much to share and much love to send.

There is a powerful force of love that can help you transition to where you need to be. Allow yourself to be lifted and carried by it as you surrender and let go of control. Allow the sacredness of life to wrap you in its arms and see how things change for you.

You are a part of the sacredness of life. With every breath you take you release a part of this sacredness into the Universe. Just as you also receive the sacredness in return.

Reciprocity in love

Reciprocity in sacredness.

This is the order of the Universe

Of which you are an integral part.

Be of love,

Be at peace, and

Surrender

Impermanence

Constant movement

Constant change

Allows for growth.

The Universe is moving forward

Bringing you and all of creation with it.

Permanent stasis is not an option.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Understand that the intensity,

Be it joy or pain,

Will diminish.

Understand that you have the strength

To persevere

No matter what.

And understand that you are

A being of light and love.

Dear One With All of Thee.
