The Awakening Continues

As the energies continue to rise

Here upon this plane

So too, does your awakening continue.

Be not afraid or doubtful

Of what is occurring in your life.

For it is forward movement.

Dear One, as your life continues to change and broaden, do not be fearful of what is occurring. The energies continue to rise here upon this physical plane and within you as well. Accept the changes which are occurring and give yourself time to rest. For rest is needed to adjust to the higher energies within and around you.

As the energies shift, so too, is the opportunity for you to shift your perception of your life and your world. Rather than observing only chaos, inequality and fear, can you begin to see the calm, the compassion and the love which surrounds you.

This is a world of duality, so both extremes will be present. However, that upon which you focus will become your reality. For remember, that this physical existence is, in truth, only an illusion. An illusion created for you to learn and grow and share that knowledge with the collective consciousness and with the Source. Remember that you are divine and a vehicle for the Source to experience Itself in infinite states of being.

You, Dear One, are holy, powerful and shine brightly. As you walk under the evening sky, reach out to the stars above and connect your light with theirs. For that is what they do for you, reaching down to connect you with the infinite light which is ever present and a part of who you really are.

You have the opportunity to share this inner light with others as you move through your day. But first, you must learn to release the self-doubt and comparisons you make with others. For any thoughts of being imperfect, weak or unworthy are only the products of the illusions of this physical world. Can you cease accepting these illusions created in a world of duality and begin to see, to feel, the light within you?

Shed the notion of being alone, unloved or imperfect, for none of these are truth. You are a part of a wondrous network of loving, divine beings who are on a journey of self-discovery. Failure is not possible, for anything which you experience adds to the knowledge shared with the All. And all knowledge is accepted with much gratitude and love.

Your awakening has begun and will continue from this day forth. There will be adjustments that you will find necessary to make in your daily life. More rest and self-care, providing essential nutrients to your physical form as it adjusts to its new environment are just two that will ease your way forward.

Can you reflect upon your life and contemplate on what is truly necessary for you to focus your attention? Can you begin to simplify and rid yourself of that which you no longer need, be it physical belongings, relationships, or practices which have only become habits and no longer serve you?

Dear One, find the new balance in your life, for it will shift as the energies continue to rise. And most importantly, walk in love. This includes love for self and love for your greatest adversaries. For all that has appeared to you as a challenge or a burden has been a lesson and opportunity for personal growth.

Remember that all are here to learn, to teach, to be a catalyst in the life of another to help them move forward. Rather than holding resentments or judgment against others or yourself, step back and try to see from a higher perspective. This will become easier for you as you continue to awaken in these changing times.

Chaos precedes change and there are wondrous changes ahead for this plane. Reach out to others if you are feeling uncertain. Reach out to others if you are feeling that you can help guide them forward. You are not alone, but part of a divine community experiencing a life of duality and change.

Many souls will not have the opportunity to experience this life and watch with loving attention as you make your way forward. They are also willing and able to help if only you call for it as you walk your path.

Dear One, how can we express to you the gratitude we hold for you; the sheer power of your experiences in guiding the All forward; and how the shift in your perception will completely change the energies of your life.

You are divine and powerful

You are awakening at a rapid pace.

And as you learn to move

In this new environment

Wondrous changes await you.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Observation

What is it that you see

As you look around your world?

Do you see the same as others?

Are you seeing reality

Or an illusion

Affected by your own beliefs

And judgments?

What is your reality?

Dear One, as you move through your day and interact with others and with nature, can you be sure that what you see is true reality or an illusion? We have told you before that you create your own world. And your creations are affected by your emotions, your biases and your spiritual growth. What do you see? And if you look a second time, will your vision of reality be the same?

How much do you fail to notice as you move through your world? Walking around encased within your mind, thinking of past or future events, how much do you fail to observe throughout your day? Have you missed the silent cues offered by others, the nuances that reveal true meaning masked by your misperceptions of someone or something? Are you able to move forward with neutrality and open-mindedness as you view your world?

Human emotions can cloud your vision and Ego can encourage you to see only through one lens of perception. But what if, what if you were able to just listen to another with the intent to learn from them? What if you were able to observe without expectation and familiarity? You often believe that having seen something, having met someone, that you know and understand exactly what they have to offer you. When in fact the complexity of human existence can create new experiences with every encounter you have, even with the familiar.

The key is to be open and receptive to what is being revealed to you. Human ego tells you that you know and understand a situation because you have experienced it once before, because you have walked that path once before. When in fact, life exists within a web of connection and something you feel is familiar has changed between encounters, often in subtle and sometimes momentous ways because of this connection.

Consider your physical body and how it changes every day. Consider the forces of nature and how they change every day. Consider your emotional state and how that changes every day. Why then would not the world you observe change every day as well? It would serve you well to step back from that assumption that your knowledge is complete about a person or a situation. Can you approach your day as a naïve child, as if seeing everything for the first time? For indeed, you are.

Take the time to listen, with complete focus on what you are hearing; to see, with complete focus on what you are observing, to feel, to taste, to smell as if for the first time. The complexities of life can reveal much to you if you move forward with an open heart, with the awareness that what or who you are encountering has something to teach you.

It matters not if you have different viewpoints during a discussion. It matters not if you do not like what you see or experience. Rather than judge, ask yourself what you can learn from this situation. Upon silent reflection, you will be surprised at what might enter your consciousness and how well it can serve you as you move forward upon your journey.

Dear One, make no assumptions about anyone or anything, for all of creation is in constant flux and nothing remains static. You do yourself and others a disservice if you approach your day without the humility of a student knowing that they have much to learn. Your network of connection to all things has much to teach you, if you allow yourself to see what it has to offer.

The result may be a wondrous feeling of awe, inspiration or pure joy as you observe beauty where you once saw only ruin; strength rather than weakness; or gentleness underneath the hardened exterior. All are possible as you change your way of observing your world.

Be present

Be aware

Put aside your emotional attachments

And see through a neutral lens.

Your vision will clear and show you

A world more loving and beautiful,

A world in constant movement

Towards knowledge and connection.

For you are and always will be

One With All of Thee.

The Passage of Time

Time moves forward at the same rate every day

Even though you often think it is moving too fast or too slow.

Your perception changes depending on your state of mind.

How does this affect other areas of your life?

Dear One, you mark the passage of time with your clocks often thinking it is moving too slowly or too fast. And yet, here upon this physical plane, your science tells you that the passage of time moves forward at a constant rate. In other realms, time does not even exist as everything occurs in the now. And so, how should you view time and its passage here upon this earthly plane?

Can you approach your day with the belief that there is plenty of time to do what you feel needs to be done? Remember that you are creator of your own world. And you can create a most perfect day ahead of you or one that is filled with misery and chaos. It is your choice how your day goes forward.

Do you not often lose yourself in time when you are so focused on the task at hand? You are truly living in the moment, completely present with what you are doing. You are living in the now and are not worried about the time. Compare this to times when you are anticipating an upcoming event and it seems as if eons need to pass before you reach the time when this event will occur. In this scenario, you are not at all present in the now, but are looking ahead to the future and time appears to move ever so slowly.

This is difficult for you, we know. In your natural state you are aware that all can occur exactly in the same moment. There really is no past or future, only the present. So how do you reconcile this difference in relation to time as the energies raise here and you walk with a foot in both worlds?

Can you begin to approach your day in a different manner? Can you see your ‘future’ as if it is already occurring in the present? Rather than anticipating how an interaction will occur and worrying about its outcome, can you see it occurring at this very moment with the most perfect of outcomes? Remember that you are co-creator of your own world. This requires a leap of faith for you in believing that indeed you have the power to create your world.

Can you approach each part of your day with love rather than fear? Again, this requires a leap of faith for you that all is well and occurring exactly as it should to move the collective consciousness forward. If you can believe in a benevolent Universe of which you are a part, you are better able to accept whatever outcome which occurs. Consider if everyone here upon this plane takes this approach and how your world would change to a kinder and more loving world.

You, Dear One, are a being of vibrational energy and expending that energy on worry and fear rather than on love will deplete the reserves that you have. How often have you noticed how exhausted you are after a huge emotional event in your life? Constant worry and fear is not sustainable and difficult for your fragile human forms. Do not lose sight of the fact that everything that occurs in your life is a sacred event. For everything in creation is sacred, coming from the Source and once again returning to the Source.

We encourage you to be more present in the moment and focused on what you are doing right now. With every breath that you take offer blessings to the world and know, truly know, that all is well, all will be well. Your future is your present expanded outward into infinity. See it as perfect in every way. Know, truly know, that offering gratitude for the future’s blessings will bring you exactly what you need at this time.

You create your own world

In conjunction with the All That Is.

You are given what you ask for

Be it positive or negative from your point of view.

Choose love, choose to be present in the moment

And see how your world changes.

Do not underestimate your power

In creating your future.

For indeed, you are One With All of Thee.

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.

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.

Mis-perception Causes Doubt

 

misperception

Can you trust what you see with your physical eyes?

Or do you need to look from your heart

To understand exactly what is happening

And why?

Dear One, this physical world in which you live is filled with illusions which can lead to mis-perceptions and doubt of who you really are. Remember that the physical senses help you navigate a physical world. But there is much more to existence that this. And in order to see beyond, to understand what is really happening, requires looking through your third eye; using your intuition and seeing with compassion and love.

You are so much more that you realize as you walk on this physical plane. For years, you have accepted the reality which you have experienced with your physical senses. This has brought you joy at times, while on other occasions has caused you to lose faith in yourself and in the forward movement of creation.

Today we wish to remind you that there is more to existence than what you can experience through the physical body. The lack of experience you have in using your other ‘senses’ is causing you much distress and promoting fear and doubt. We encourage you to acknowledge and to work with the entirety of your being, which includes your energetic bodies and senses.

You have had glimpses into this world when you had a spark of an idea, an impulsive moment to take another route or to say words which you had not planned to speak. If you were to pay closer attention to your days, you would recognize more of these moments which you cannot quite explain. These are the times when your other self, your higher self, is guiding you forward as it reaches through the barriers of physical existence to reach you in your most natural form.

Dear One, can you begin to allow yourself to accept that there is more to your existence that what you perceive with your physical senses? It is time. For now, as the vibrational energies of this physical plane are rising, there is a part of you that yearns to be free from the chains that have kept it hidden for so long.

In order to move through your world, with the higher vibrations coming into existence, it is necessary to begin to accept the gifts of these additional senses that are so natural for you. Deny them no longer and accept them for the gifts that they are. The physical senses brought you only so far. To continue the journey, it is time to cease listening only to that human mind and to begin to see through your heart center; that energetic space whcih exists around your physical heart area.

There is an awakening occurring across this planet of yours and your help is required to continue to move the collective consciousness forward. Can you set aside those feelings of unworthiness, of doubt and fear and to begin to move forward with your innate grace and power? Giant leaps of growth are not required. But opening up your heart and coming from a place of love and compassion will begin to unwrap the bindings that have held you back for so long.

When you perceive of a situation or a person and begin to make a judgment, stop. Take a breath and revisit what you think you are perceiving. Open your heart and your mind, ground yourself and surround yourself with the loving embrace of the Oneness. Then look again. Be open to all possibilities, for there are an infinite number of possibilities, unlike the minor few conjured up by your physical mind.

Send love and blessings to that person or situation, not judgment. View through the veil of compassion and see what is happening as an opportunity for growth, for all involved. For truly, that is all that it is. An opportunity for growth. An opportunity to come from love and compassion. An opportunity to walk in grace. And remind yourself that love is much stronger than fear. Always.

True power, true peace, does not come from physical strength but through internal love and acceptance of all that is. You are unable to see the larger picture from your vantage point here upon this physical plane. You are, however, able to send blessings and love to all, even if you do not agree with their actions.

Remember, with compassion, the times you were wounded and wanted to lash out to ease your internal pain and confusion. Remember, with compassion, the times when you felt so alone and ignored by others. Remember that you are a being of light and love, capable of seeing clearly through your additional, non-physical senses.

You, Dear One, are the instrument of change, not only for this physical world, but across realms, as all are connected. In love. Allow your true nature to emerge. See things as they really are. Love your fellow travelers on this plane, unconditionally. Love as you wish to be loved. Bless as you wish to be blessed. Cease judging, as you wish not to be judged.

You are greater, stronger and loved more than you realize.

Extend your hand behind you to pull others forward, just as you reach forward to be held in love by those ahead of you on their journeys.

Love, Dear One.

For love is all there is.

 

Choose Peace

choose peace

bluewatervoyaging.com

You have a choice in how you live each day.

You have a choice in the thoughts you choose to harbor,

The feelings you choose to hold onto.

The choice is always yours

Because you have free will.

Choose peace.

Dear One, life in the physical world is an adventure, but also a challenge. With this existence you have many choices to make, much freedom in how you move through your day. And yet, this human condition, with its illusion of separateness and plethora of emotions, can present a challenge to remembering your divine nature.

Can you open your eyes to the opportunities, the beauty, the joy and the love which surrounds you every moment of the day? There is beauty everywhere. Even in the most dire of situations, the Mother might send you a songbird or a ray of sunshine to pierce the darkness you feel enveloping you.

You are master over your mind, not servant to it. You have the power to cease those thoughts that invite you into despair and frustration. You have the power to raise your vibrations to those of peace and gratitude. Much of how you live your life falls into a pattern, a habit, which can be broken.

Choose peace. When you feel those emotions of lower vibration begin to well up within you, choose peace instead. You are not alone in this. There are many of you who experience the same challenges in changing their perceptions of their world; from a world filled with despair to one of joy. But it is possible to do this with support, from the unseen world and from others who understand that which you are experiencing.

We say to you again, you have the power to change your world. It begins with changing your perspective, with loving yourself and believing in yourself and your capacity for love and forgiveness. You are a Divine Being, existing in a physical world filled with emotional responses. And the emotions you feel are a guide to where you are on your spiritual path.

Can you love unconditionally, yourself and others? Can you forgive yourself and others, rather than holding onto old hurts? Can you see the divine within all of creation, from the smallest of creatures to, yes, your greatest adversaries? Can you focus on the beauty in your life rather than the perceived darkness?

This is not to say that you turn a blind eye to suffering, for suffering is a part of this journey of personal growth. But suffering can be diminished by how you see your world. Can you see the opportunities, the possibilities, and trust the unfolding of your life with faith that all is as it should be?

Challenges occur every day. The question is how you respond to these challenges. Do you worry and fret, or do you choose peace, with the understanding that all will be well? Do you continue to worry about that which has not occurred? The truth is that outcomes can be far grander than you can even imagine.

Choose peace, when those worrisome thoughts try to lodge within your mind. Remember that you are master over your mind. Choose peace, and silence the repetitive thoughts which bring your vibrations down. Tell your mind that instead, you choose peace. And seek help if you need support. You are not alone.

Choose wisely those with whom you spend your time. For as the vibrational changes continue to occur, you may become more sensitive to lower energies put out by others. Consider quiet time to replenish your spirits. Cease exposure to drama when possible. Observe, but do not engage in drama created by others. Send love and find compassion for others, and for yourself, as you move forward on this path.

Choose peace.

Love, as you have never loved before, as your capacity for this is infinite.

Focus on the beauty, the joy, that is present in your life.

Cease the worry about that which has not occurred

And trust that all is unfolding as it should.

The possibilities for growth exist in every challenge that comes your way.

And as you continue to grow, you will be able to find gratitude for those opportunities.

But for now, know that you have someone by your side at all times.

At ALL times.

Choose peace, Dear One.

Dear One with All of Thee.
