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.

Question Everything

question everything

Alice In Wonderland http://www.pinterest.com

What is your truth?

Is it the same as another’s?

How do you know

What is truth

And what is imagery?

Dear One, what is your truth and how do you determine that indeed it is truth? Do you believe in the words of those whom you trust and therefore accept without thought that what they say is true? Or do you question everything, including these words, before you accept them as true? How do you accept something as truth?

Consider these questions as you continue to move forward upon your spiritual path. For indeed, you are strong enough and knowledgeable enough to accept something as truth even though others may not. You have the tools in order to determine truth when it is presented to you.

How? Your internal compass, your intuition, will tell you what to believe and what to discard as fabrication. The path forward includes honing in on what your higher self, your internal guide, your gut, is telling you about what you hear or see or experience. And as you continue to grow, you will recognize the feelings that you have when either truth or lies are shared with you.

With the human condition comes much emotion, desire for events to occur in a certain way, at a designated time. Feeling this way does not include the understanding of divine connection or divine timing which affect how and when events/interactions occur.

As you continue to grow, you will begin to understand this and begin to move through your day with an inner calm and peace. You will also learn to allow the intense emotion that arises to settle down before you make a decision on how to move forward. For like unfiltered apple juice, once it settles, clarity will become more apparent allowing you to see unencumbered by the chaos around/within you.

Dear One, all the knowledge you need is within you, for remember that you are connected to the Source and that connection lies within your heart. It is time for you to begin to trust yourself in how you feel about something or someone. But again, this is best done when you have allowed your emotions to settle down to provide more clarity.

As you move forward, we encourage you to question everything, yes, including these words. Notice how they make you feel and then decide if this is truth for you or not. Do this in all aspects of your life. Practice discernment without judgment. For each person has their own truth which is determined by their life experiences and where they are on their spiritual paths.

Allow yourself time to listen to others even if you do not agree with what they say. For they may still provide you with some insight on how best to move forward without judgment or blame. The human condition provides opportunity for personal growth and often much suffering accompanies this growth.

But as you become more aware of who you truly are and what your place is in this world, you will discover that you are able to view others with compassion rather than judgment. Do you see how this all works? Trust, faith and inner peace allow for more compassion and less judgment. And those on the receiving end of this loving compassion will be helped to find their own inner peace allowing them to continue the chain of loving embrace.

It begins with you. It always begins with you as you allow time for self-reflection. This begins a chain of events that continues forward on and into infinity. You are the source of love. You always have been. It just takes time to unveil this truth in the midst of such suffering and chaos.

You are never alone, for you are a part of the Divine with all the knowledge you need within you. Self-reflection will reveal your truths to you and provide you with the strength, courage and compassion to move forward in love.

For indeed, you are love incarnate

On a journey of self-discovery

Surrounded by love.

Remember you are connected to the All

In love

And you are never alone

Dear One With All of Thee.

Growing Pains

 

Just as physical growth

May cause some discomfort

So too, spiritual growth

May do the same.

But know the end result will be wondrous.

Dear One, growth comes with its own process and often discomfort. Spiritual learning may cause you to reflect upon issues long buried deep within your being. And it is the brave soul who allows these issues to percolate and emerge for reflection and release.

The human psyche is well developed to allow you to move forward despite many hurts or disappointments. And often this is done by burying those feelings so that you are able to survive the moment and carry on.

But eventually, especially if you have opened to your spiritual path, these long-forgotten feelings must be brought to the surface to be faced with love and forgiveness. For they sub-consciously affect how you walk through your world even though you do not remember them. What was initiated as a protective measure for you may become an anchor holding you back from further progress upon your path.

It takes courage and faith to allow these feelings to surface and we encourage you to seek help or counsel if you are struggling with what is emerging. It is a part of the process of the cleansing of the soul which will allow more light to emerge as a result.

Dear One, if this is happening to you, it means you are ready, you are strong enough, you have the support to allow this process to continue. Trust in yourself and do not attempt to over-analyze what is occurring. It is more helpful to focus upon what you are feeling rather than what your mind is thinking. For the human condition in many cultures encourages thinking over feeling. And it is time to recognize your feelings and allow them to be heard.

The world is changing, the universe is expanding, and all sentient beings are affected by what is occurring. There are many upon this plane who are very aware of this and who are working very hard to help others to raise their vibrations to ease any discomfort these changes bring to them.

If you are struggling, reach out to others whom you trust. If you have come to the other side of those growth spurts, reach out to those who are confused about what is occurring in their lives. Remember, all are connected. And as one person works through long-forgotten issues, all others gain. This is because you all have similar issues, with varying degrees of intensity, but still they are universal across the human condition.

As you continue to grow, and indeed you will and are growing, love and compassion will become a more natural response to incidents which occur in your life. This includes self-love and self-realization of how far you have come in this earthly life of yours.

It will include compassion for others as you begin to reflect upon the common traits of the human condition and how the spectrum is affected by the level of personal awakening of each person. You will begin to reflect upon how you speak to others, how you listen to others and how you act toward others.

This is in your future, Dear One. But it requires effort on your part, and some discomfort, as discomfort usually goes hand-in-hand with growth. However, you must remember that you are not alone in this. Many others are experiencing the same as you. And you have much help available to you from both the seen and the unseen worlds. Reach out; either for help or to give help. It is all connected and each person’s progress will affect you also.

You are a being of light

Brave enough to live in a world of duality

Where the lessons can be challenging

But not insurmountable.

Help surrounds you

Reach out and take it.

For you are loved and respected

Beyond measure

Dearest One With All of Thee.

 

Perception of Time

How do you move through your day?

Are you thinking of the future?

Reliving the past?

Or are you enjoying the moment

Exactly as it is unfolding around you?

Dear One, as you have read before, the only part of your life which enables you to take action is the present. Contemplating the future or the past puts you in a state of being which exists only in your mind. The possibilities of enjoying the present moment are minimized as your mind takes you elsewhere. Your conscious attention is drawn away from what is occurring in the now limiting your potential for growth.

In reality, time does not really exist as you perceive it with your conscious mind. In truth, you are existing in multiple time frames simultaneously. Does this sound too far-fetched for you? Then consider how often you are traveling from one physical place to another while your attention is far away either in the past or the future. Is this not existing in two time frames at once?

And have you been productive in either of those times as you co-exist in both at once? Have you not missed what is occurring in your immediate surroundings at the present moment? Have you contributed anything other than worry or anxiety to the past or future moment which you consider in your mind? Once again, we tell you that the present moment is the only point of action.

Can you instead focus all of your attention on the present moment? Seeing, really seeing and observing, what is occurring at this time. Truly listening to what another is saying rather than already forming your response while they are still speaking. How many opportunities have passed in the present while you have been in your mind thinking of other times?

Dear One, your life can be infinitely more enjoyable if you are able to truly be present in the moment. If you feel you need to plan for the future, or reflect upon the past, then set time aside to put all of your attention on either of these tasks. For, indeed, reflection and contemplation are required for forward movement on your path. Allowing yourself the time to meditate or to write will help you to clear your mind of those thoughts which continue to vie for attention through-out your day.

Remember also, that your perception of past encounters can be altered due to your emotional state. To be able to see things more clearly, ask for help and clarity as you reflect upon the past. If you are certain how you want a future event to unfold, give gratitude for it as if it has already happened as you wish it to happen.

You are more powerful than you imagine. But you require more practice in focus and release. Focusing on what you are truly feeling, on how you want your life to unfold and what is happening at this very moment in time.  Multi-tasking is not as productive as you require it to be. Have you considered that the reason you do not remember much of what has occurred in your life is because your focus has been elsewhere rather than in the moment, in the now.

Life for you is very complicated. But there are ways in which it can be simplified by honestly reflecting on what absolutely needs to be focused upon in this moment in time. And then by focusing solely on that one task. Your daily life is filled with a constant flux of energies from those around you asking for your attention. Add to that the internal chaos which exists in your mind as you grapple with doing it all.

Dear One, take a deep breath and take an honest assessment of what really serves you and how you can serve the world in this moment of time. It may be as simple as sitting quietly and allowing your mind to clear and de-clutter. It may be as easy as taking a breath and sending love out into the world. Or it may be as natural as observing your present situation with all of your senses.

Remember the tranquility, Dear One,

That lives deep within your being.

It is your natural state.

Find it again, it is still there.

Buried within the chaos of your mind.

Go to your heart center and allow it to emerge

With each breath that you take.

This is who you truly are

Connected with the All

In peace and harmony.

Dear One With All of Thee.
