Choices

Every moment of your day

You make choices.

What guides those choices?

And how do those choices

Affect your life?

Dear One, as you inhabit this physical world you have the free will to make infinite choices every day. The choices that you make clear your path forward as they affect how your life evolves. What guided those decisions that you made? Was it love, fear, faith or trust? And should you judge those choices as good or bad?

Each and every one of you came here with a lesson to learn. And in the process of learning that lesson, you often are an unknowing teacher for others. How can this not be true as you all are connected through the web of consciousness?

The key to this is how observant you and those around you are to what is occurring right before your eyes. There is always an energetic, subconscious portion to every occurrence in your life. And each of you will absorb this no matter what. But the true substance of the lesson is revealed only through observation and reflection. And often this reflection is done in hindsight.

Consider this. How often do you mimic the actions of another without thinking? These might be choices made by a parent or an elder that were often done when you were a child. As that child, you repeated those actions without considering that there were other options. They were familiar and how things were always done. So of course, you continued following the same path.

But often, that way of living is not the best path for you. And it takes much reflection and courage to realize that you must take another course, to live your life another way. Making that choice may be difficult and frightening as you do not know what lies ahead. These are the times when being your authentic self and following your heart will free you to follow your own true path.

There is a great lesson in this for you. And also for those who encourage you to continue following the more familiar ways of being. The unknown lays before you with equal possibilities of causing you pain or joy. And often you are meant to follow this part of your path alone. Do you have the faith, the trust in yourself, in your connection with the All, to take a chance?

Dear One, all paths lead to the same end. It is just that some paths are richer in what they provide for you. Some paths are filled with numerous lessons unattainable if you remained on the familiar course. Yes, challenges may lie ahead. In fact, that is most assuredly a given.

But in facing those challenges and moving through them, you will find a strength, a resolve, a character trait that you did not realize you had. And in making this choice, you often are providing an example for others, encouraging them to do the same.

The possibilities of your life experiences are infinite, Dear One. So, if you are not comfortable where you sit at this moment, then make a choice to change your position. Reflect upon the path that has led you to where you are. Is your life serving you as it is? Are you serving others in your current state of being?

But remember also, that often, a pause is needed before taking another leap forward. This pause may be necessary to give you time for rest and reflection. This pause may be necessary for the matrix to rearrange itself in order to provide you with the best choices. Everything within the web may not yet be in place to lay your best path before you.

Dear One, do not compare your life to that of others. For each of you is unique in the gifts you have and in the lessons that will fill your life. If you are observant and reflective, trust that you will be led forward exactly to where you need to be to take your next step. And if a pause is necessary, accept it with the faith that it is exactly what is required at this time of your life.

Each choice made will provide a lesson. Observe your choices and those of others without judgment. Be kind to yourself and others. For each life lived contributes an important piece of knowledge to the collective consciousness. Each life lived is worthy of respect. And each life lived affects you in some way, regardless of your awareness of this connection.

Live your life to its fullest.

Embrace the challenges

With the richness each contributes

To your life.

Move forward with faith and courage.

And give gratitude for each lesson

Provided to you or to others.

All are connected.

All are loved.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Why Not Say Yes?

Angel Oak Tree by Dustin K. Ryan

Say yes to the many possibilities

In your life.

Say yes to accepting joy

In your life.

Say yes to believing

In yourself.

Dear One, can you say yes to all that life sends your way? Can you see the gift in all that crosses your path? Can you say yes to the truth that you are capable, worthy and ready to take the next step forward?

There are two components to your life, the physical and the spiritual. The spiritual component is that which guides you forward into the next lesson, the next experience. The physical is what reacts to the experience. It can accept it with love or approach it with fear and disdain.

You can experience and focus on the discomfort of the situation. Or you can approach it with acceptance that it is impermanent and also an opportunity to grow. You can bemoan the fact that this experience is not pleasant. Or you can see it as another step forward on your path, a gift to all concerned. The choice is yours.

Reacting is a physical behavior. It is driven by human emotion and often is done without forethought. Responding is the result of pausing and reflecting upon what has just occurred. In responding you are bringing in the spiritual component of your life. What just happened? Why, and how best do I respond to this?

Any discomfort you feel is temporary. And in tangent with that concept, any joy you feel may also be temporary. It all depends on how you see the current situation of your life. If it causes you despair, can you reflect upon it, seek help if needed, and honestly ask yourself what opportunities for change are present. If your current life situation brings you joy, then offer gratitude for the lightness of being which surrounds you.

Remember that this physical life is one of duality. Both highs and lows will be experienced for both light and dark inhabit this plane of existence. This is why it is such a wondrous learning ground for souls who incarnated in order to experience self-discovery. No learning results from a perfect, carefree existence. The lesson is in how you react or respond to the ups and downs of your life.

It may bring you comfort to understand the impermanence of all things on this physical plane. And it may help you to understand that the choice is always yours on what comes next. For there is opportunity for change with every breath that you take.

There are as many paths for you to take as branches on a tree. Each one spreading from the core, the trunk. And each one reaching towards the light. You are like that tree, solid in your core, but able to sway in the currents of life as you reach outward and upward. If the branch you are currently traveling breaks off, then another one resumes the journey forward.

Dear One, there are always opportunities presented to you. And each opportunity provides a different part of the lesson you came here to learn. Embrace your life and know that you have the strength, the help to move forward in love.

If you need to pause and reflect, do so. Your strength and power will once again surge through your veins. Know that there is the possibility of joy underneath every leaf on your journey. And remember that you are firmly attached to the strength of the Mother, the power of the All. Nothing can change that.

You are One with All.

You have the opportunity to change.

Each moment of your life

Provides the opportunity for growth.

And when the new blossoms appear

You will shine with more light

Than ever before.

You are a magnificent being.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Trust in Yourself

nightbird-1.tumblr.com

Why do you not believe in yourself?

In the possibilities

In the gifts given to you

In the perfect timing

In how your life unfolds?

Begin to trust

And see how your life changes.

Dear One, you are a magnificent being with incredible potential to change your world. And yet you focus only on your perceived flaws. Can you begin to accept your true nature with a neutral state of mind, accepting your strengths, your gifts, and begin to change your world.

Each and every one of you has been ‘designed’ to contribute something unique to this physical world. You move through this matrix of life encountering others or situations which are stations provided for you to make your mark, often in the simplest of ways.

What you have yet to realize is how a small gesture on your part can begin a series of events which blossoms into a momentous change as it moves down the matrix. Everything you do has an effect upon your world. Which is why love and compassion are encouraged at all stages of your life.

And often this love and compassion must be directed towards yourself. This notion that exists in your mind that you are flawed, imperfect or unimportant can only be erased by you. And since it often requires the help of others to remove this way of thinking, you are constantly provided with avenues to receive this help in the most unlikely of interactions.

Dear One, can you begin to accept your divine nature? Can you begin to realize that your greatest of perceived flaws may be your most wondrous gift to share with the world? Your strength lies in your uniqueness. You are different from any other upon this plane. And at the same time, you are the same.

As you continue to awaken, you will begin to have a better understanding of the complexities of how all of creation is connected. The human mind can only grasp so much, for it exists only in a physical world, accustomed to the 4th dimension. And yet, your heart knows and understands much more, as it moves across dimensions, outward in a manner which will not yet be revealed to you.

Can you move through your day, your world with trust and faith? Human nature is comfortable with a world that is neat and tidy, lacking the raw edges deemed unnecessary in this train of thought. And yet, it is in these raw edges where the changes are born.

Remember that in this current state of existence, you are unable to see the larger picture. You may try to uncover the reasons for the actions of another because you need an ordered way of life; everything must fit into a certain box or category.

The problem with this approach is that the human mind limits the possibilities of existence. It cannot begin to fathom the infinite possibilities in any situation. Which means that your tidy explanation of a certain event does not see the depth, the expansion, the true impetus of its occurrence.

If you can begin to nourish the belief that your need to understand is not always necessary. If you can begin to live your life with faith and trust in yourself and in the perfection of the unfolding of your day. If you can choose love and compassion for every event or interaction. How would that change your world?

Dear One, give gratitude for all that occurs in your life. Ask for help daily in moving through your world with love and compassion. Allow the raw edges of life to gently guide you forward. For it is only in expanding your reach beyond that ‘comfort zone’ that you will grow and experience your greatest of lessons.

It is time for you to begin to see the divinity, the perfection, in all parts of your life. As you nurture this way of seeing, your priorities of what is truly important to you will change.

Stretch, grow and expand

Your consciousness and your way of life.

You are ready

And you have our support and guidance

Every moment of your day.

You are wondrous

You are awakening

And we celebrate

Every forward step you take

Back towards your own divine nature.

Dear, Dear One With All of Thee.

Universal Healing

As you continue to heal

All connected to you also heal

Because you exist in a matrix.

The One and the All

Moving forward with your awakening.

Dear One, as you continue your own healing, all those whom you touch will also feel the effects of that healing. It will allow them the opportunity to begin their own healing, awakening. A gift from you to them. And in the opposite direction, the healing of others accelerates your own healing. For you are One with All.

Consider this. How you feel after being with someone who is filled with joy and laughter. Compare this to how you feel after being with someone who is angry and bitter. You walk away either feeling uplifted or downtrodden. The energy exchange between you has affected you unless you are prepared not to accept another’s lower energies.

As you continue to awaken, just your mere presence will be a catalyst for another to move forward with a higher frequency of vibration. And as you continue to awaken, you will notice more often how another affects your own state of mind. Choose wisely those with whom you associate.

How you see another will also affect their energetic vibration. If you see them sick and weakened, you will be contributing to a lower state of being for them rather than raising them up. So too, for you and how others see you when your body, your state of mind, is going through a healing process.

Ask your loved ones to see you healed and whole, in your divine light, rather than sick or ill. In this matrix, this web of connection, you want higher frequencies, those of love and strength being sent your way. Consider how differently you treat another if you see them disabled and weak rather than capable and in a state of growth.

The key to all of this is love and compassion. Keep this in mind as you see yourself, others and the world around you. All are in a constant state of flux, of growth. And often as one is shedding the old ways of being during this growth process many perceive it as a step backwards. When to the contrary, it is a step forward, closer to the light and higher vibration.

Dear One, take care as you perceive others and your world. Do not turn away from those you can assist on their forward journey. But be careful how you see them as they move through the lessons chosen by them to learn during this process. Always honor the divinity within all who cross your path.

Honor the divinity of this physical world which provides you will all you need to survive in a physical state. And consider how the Mother’s cycles of growth, dormancy, and regrowth mirror your own cycles. Often a period of quiet, of stillness, is required to allow you the time to heal and replenish, to then burst forth in a higher state of being.

Each and every one of you moves through your own personal cycle of growth and stillness. Honor this in yourself and in others. And remember that you are all connected. So that in your times of stillness, others can send loving thoughts to help nurture the growth occurring within you.

Dear One, you are more wondrous than you ever imagined. And all that occurs in your life is to help facilitate your growth. Change your perception about your life. For life does not happen TO you, it happens FOR you. To aid you on your journey.

Your growth is always moving forward regardless of your perception of it. Your divinity continues to emerge as you awaken to the oneness of all. Dear One, live a life of love and acceptance. Choose to hold others in light, honoring the lessons they have chosen. And allow times of stillness in your own life for healing and personal growth.

All grow together

In this matrix which connects

The divinity in all of creation.

This includes you

And all that you see before you.

Honor that divinity

With a loving heart.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

The Ascension

Rise up

To your greatest potential.

Leave behind all fear

And uncertainty.

For you are divine

And capable of miracles.

Dear One, you have lived long enough under the illusion that you are a physical being, limited in your potential for greatness and change. The connection you have with the All That Is urges you to move forward with grace and love. This is your time for change.

Can you move forward with faith, leaving behind any trepidation or fear that you are not worthy, not ready, not good enough. Dear One, you are a divine being and capable of so much more than you realize. And help surrounds you as you take those first hesitant steps forward into great change and infinite possibilities.

How do you make this shift in how you see yourself and your world? The shift has already occurred for many of you. Conscious awareness may not have occurred yet. But consider how you see your world. Consider how you feel as you move through your day. And notice if prior habits no longer provide the satisfaction they once did.

You are changing, Dear One, at a rate that is perfect for you. All that occurs for you, to you, occurs in a manner in which you can readily accept. In fact, some of these changes are so subtle that it may take awhile for you to even notice a different awareness about your life.

The energies here upon this plane are changing, vibrating at a higher frequency, which is one of the reasons there is so much chaos in your present world. On some level, many feel the change but do not know how to integrate it into their own lives.

This is where you are able to help. If you are reading these words you are already aware of the shift that is occurring. And you can help by sending out loving energy into the world. You may have already noticed how it is easier to come from your heart. Understanding the intricacies of this world may not seem as important as moving through it with love.

Your role is to help others move forward with grace. Your mere presence is neutralizing the fear which many are feeling at this time of change. Do not underestimate the power of your silent presence. For as you continue to open more to your own divinity, your connection with the All That Is will strengthen.

Words may not be needed to help another. Being a sounding board, allowing them a safe venue for expressing their fears, their hopes, the unusual things that are occurring to them, may be all that is required. And if there is guidance for you to share, have faith that your strengthened connection will provide the most perfect words in which to give this guidance.

In order to help others, your own faith and trust in yourself and in the Oneness must become stronger. For you are the conduit for change. Each of you is placed in the most perfect situation to do your best work. And for some, that may be only to listen and be present.

Encourage others to trust the process that is occurring. They will see a change in you and wonder how you can walk with such peace of mind in such chaotic times.

Seek out others who are at the level of growth similar to your own. Combining your energies is much more powerful when done with intention. Allowing yourself the gift of having another to share the changes occurring in your own life will help to keep you on your path.

For now that you have begun this process, there is no turning back. The only movement is forward and you can do it with more grace than you ever imagined. Forgive yourself and others for past indiscretions. And realize that those indiscretions have brought you to where you are today, in this moment of loving embrace.

You are perfect in every way, for you are a divine being. Neither better or worse than anyone else. But connected to all who cross your path and beyond. Oh, Dear One, the heavens are astir with excitement at the progress you have made to reach this point.

Honor yourself

And how far you have come.

Anticipate with faith

How much further you can go

Walking in love and grace.

You, Dear One, are just beginning

A wondrous journey forward

And we are beside you

Every step of the way.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Open Your Mind

To the possibilities

Of change

Awaiting you.

They are countless.

Do not limit them

With your human mind.

Dear One, do not see only black or white in the possibilities that lay before you on your path. There also exist magnificent colors exploding with energy, love and grace. You have lived long enough in a world limited by your physical existence. It is now time to step beyond that into the true reality of your existence.

Fear not, for you are ready for whatever changes are coming for you. You have slowly and methodically been prepared for what is to come. And you have loving guidance by your side at all times should you choose to accept our help in the coming days.

Do not allow your mind to take you to the negative possibilities using fear to hold you back. All possibilities are wondrous. All possibilities are for the common good. And all possibilities will give you the opportunities to move forward in grace and love.

By attempting to control the turn of events, you will be limiting the power of what is to come. Remember that your perspective is narrow and often laced in fear. You are unable to see the larger picture of how all events are connected and lead the collective consciousness forward for the highest good.

Can you have enough faith in yourself, in the Universal consciousness, in the power of love to accept with grace what is to come. Be aware that even the smallest of changes build upon each other to set the stage for later developments. Minor alterations in your life this day will allow for momentous changes in your future.

Can you trust that all is well, that all is progressing as it should to provide the lessons for the largest number of souls? As we have mentioned in the past, you are connected to each and every one of these souls. Yes, even to your greatest adversaries. And allowing the potential for growth in all of these souls provides great advancement for the collective consciousness.

But remember that free will is always present. You always have a choice to trust and move forward in faith or to say no and change your course. Whatever you choose, the destination is always the same. And whatever you choose, you will always be welcomed home with loving embrace. For all experiences, all choices you make are valuable and seen only in a positive light.

This physical plane is built upon duality, light and dark, negative and positive. But this duality does not exist on other planes. Which is why this physical existence is so challenging and valuable for lessons learned.

Dear One, can you begin to move forward in faith and trust, with love and only love, allowing the limiting effects of fear to drop away as you move forward. Some of you have already begun to feel the minor shifts in vibration within and around you. Others may not be aware at all.

What is important to remember is that all is well. That you are never abandoned and only loved for who you are, no matter what you choose. The most difficult challenge is for you to love yourself without that critical and judgmental eye.

Once again, we remind you that you are a divine being, created in love, existing in love and returning to love when your time here upon this physical plane is complete. Your journey of self-realization continues on even after this lifetime here upon this plane. For the opportunities for learning are as infinite as the Universe.

Dear One, move forward in light. Share that light with all who cross your path. Remember that each soul you meet is a part of you and of the All That Is.

Choose love.

Choose faith.

Choose to embrace change

As an opportunity to grow.

You are divine

Created in love

Filled with love

Surrounded by love.

Always, Dear One. Always.

Patience and Faith

They go together

These two.

Faith provides

The patience needed

To move forward

With grace.

Dear One, as you move forward during this transitional stage upon this plane, you would be much calmer if you could allow patience and faith to guide you. The combination of these two attributes will provide you with a state of peace, without the intense emotion which drives so many in your world.

When you are in a highly emotional state, it is not possible to reach the clarity required to listen to your internal, higher guidance which speaks to you constantly. Faith allows you to trust not only that your world, your life, is evolving as it should. But it also allows you to trust in yourself and your connection with the Divine and All That Is.

You were never sent out into the ocean of the physical world untethered, without a life-line, a connection to guide you safely home. Your human perspective may believe that you have been abandoned to drift alone in a sea of chaos. But if you can trust the connection that is present, at all times, ready to guide you forward, you may begin to see and believe that all is well.

You have the expression that the glass is half empty or half full. Depending on the viewer, it can be described either way, one more hopeful than the other. All of life here upon this plane can be seen from either perspective. Which one do you choose?

Challenges which appear before you are a means to an end. And that end is your personal growth. Reflect upon previous challenges and how they affected you. Often you may have felt wounded and beaten down. But did those wounds allow you to feel compassion for others in similar situations? Were you able to move past those wounds and look back to see how your experience showed you an inner strength you did not realize was there?

Dear One, this life you live will always provide you with opportunities to grow. And if the same scenario continues to appear in your life, it is time for you to ask yourself how to move forward differently. A change in attitude, an approach with love rather than fear, a realization that reaching out to others will provide the help you need.

Your life provides lessons not only for you, but for those around you. And often you will never see how your presence in an interaction has affected another. No situation is punishment for a previous action. However, there is cause and effect, which means that approaching someone in anger will often provoke a mirrored response from them.

This life’s purpose is to gain knowledge and that will continue into eternity. Every moment of your day provides you an opportunity to see with more clarity and love. And many of the lessons which you chose to learn in this physical life may take many years to provide you with the knowledge that you came here to seek.

Can you begin each day with the thought that ‘All is well’? Can you believe that each day will provide you with a most wondrous experience? Can you trust that you will always be provided with the help needed to move forward? And can you understand that the help which comes your way may be through the most antagonistic person you meet?

You have choices every moment of your day. You can choose to see your life as a failure, a trial too difficult to continue alone. Or, you can take a step back and ask yourself what this experience is teaching you. Notice if you are repeating the same pattern over and over.

The most difficult piece is trusting yourself, loving yourself enough to seek the help and guidance you need. In those moments of despair, reflect upon how far you have already come and what you have survived. Celebrate your presence, your courage and your resolve to have come this far.

Dear One, can you have the faith to realize that you are never alone and the guidance which you seek is always there? Upon reflection of your life, can you see how far you have come and have the patience to know that you will continue to move forward with each breath that you take?

It begins with faith which will provide the patience you need to walk in peace and grace. You are a divine being on a journey of personal growth in a human form. Reach down and recover that divinity which consists of love and strength. It is there. It has always been there. And the existence of the Divine lives through you. You are connected at all times to the All That Is.

Trust yourself and your own divinity.

Trust your connection to the Divine.

Allow this trust to provide you

With the patience required

To move forward with grace.

You are never alone.

You are always provided

With the help you need.

And you are loved beyond measure,

Dear One With All of Thee.
