Reflection

Time for stillness

Is needed at this time.

To help with your personal growth

And to step back

From the chaos of your world.

Dear One, you are loved beyond measure. You are a Divine Being who has embarked upon a human journey. You chose this in order to gain knowledge unattainable in any other venue. This human existence is unique and wondrous in what it has to offer you in your personal growth.

Remember this as you walk out into your world. A world which is currently undergoing much change and chaos. Your presence here at this time is no accident. You are here with the potential to make great leaps forward for the collective consciousness and also for yourself.

It begins with stillness and reflection. Time spent focusing on your breath, in and out. Inhaling the breath of the Divine. Exhaling the breath of the Divine within you. Can you pause frequently throughout your day to focus on the breath and feel the exchange of love as you partake in this simple task?

You are a conduit between heaven and earth, between the different realms of existence. And you can be that conduit as you focus on your breath. Imagine pulling the celestial energies down through your crown chakra on your inbreath. At the same time, imagine bringing up the grounding energies of the Earth Mother through the soles of your feet. Allow them to mix within your heart area. And on your out breath, release them to their original placements. Celestial up and out, Earth Mother down and out.

As you consciously repeat this process, you are helping to bring balance between the physical and energetic worlds. It will help you to remember that at this moment you are part of both realms. That you walk with a foot in both worlds.

It reminds you that there is more to your existence than what you experience through your physical senses. It helps align you with both worlds as you navigate upon your forward path. And it helps you remember that you are connected with the Divine. Always.

This school of life is a wondrous opportunity for you. And you have grown more than you allow yourself to believe. Honor that. Reflect upon how far you have come. Reflect upon old habits that can now be released because you have reached this level of consciousness. And as you reflect, allow love to fill your very being. Sending it out to all of this world and beyond. Also sending it to yourself. No judgment. Only love and compassion for all.

Dear One, these are the times for which you came. To be of service and to grow. Remember that all which occurs in your life is an opportunity for growth. All those who cross your path are your teachers providing you with lessons to learn. As you are a teacher for others, often without consciously being aware of that role which you play.

Be still and breathe. Be still and feel the connection you have with all of creation. Be still and allow the calm of the Divine to fill every pore of your physical being.

View the Aha moments you have with gratitude, not with judgment. And replace any fear which wells up within you with love. Choose peace. In times of stress, know that you have the power to say, ‘I choose peace.’ And feel the difference within.

Your strength lies in your realization of your connection with the Divine. Know that you can trust your decisions made after times of stillness. You need not give your power away to others in determining how to move forward.

Keep that chaos without from coming within. For within is your sanctuary of connection and love. Do so by breathing, in and out. By reflecting on how far you have come and how much strength you have found to arrive at this very point in time.

There is purity in your heart. There is strength in your connection with the All. And there is love surrounding you always. You are not forgotten. You are never alone. And most certainly, you are not receiving punishment for deeds done or undone.

You are a Divine Being.

At One with the Universe.

You have the ability

To change your world.

One breath at a time.

Accept this truth

And be the conduit of love.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Patience

A tool much needed at this time.

For yourself and others

As you all follow your personal journeys,

As you rise above the fear which surrounds you,

As you find peace in the stillness within.

You have grown since yesterday

And tomorrow you will be even further along your path.

This is the way of being

Here upon this Earthly plane.

Dear One, the essence of your being has changed since the day before, since the moment before. With each breath you take, you expand yourself wider, further along the path you chose for this incarnation.

Often the best way forward is to breathe, five or seven counts in, five or seven counts out. The breath will lead you to the stillness you seek for better clarity and peace.

Consider how often you hold your breath. Anger, frustration, and fear cause you to halt the exchange of air within your lungs. To release any of those emotions, focus on your breathing. Slowly. For what is more important than breath? Whatever you choose to do next can wait a moment as you replenish with the breath of the Divine. In and Out.

This busy life that you lead has you scurrying around in all directions, without purpose. You feel that as long as you are doing something, you are making progress. But, Dear One, being still is making even more progress. For it is in this stillness that you connect once again with your higher self. Outward movement is for earthly ‘progress’. Stillness expands your soul.

This physical world is just a place where you have landed for a short period of time. Your true existence lies within. Without a physical form that gives the impression of separateness; that encourages the misguided quest for accumulation of things, of power. The completion of tasks as an earmark for growth and success. But is this really true?

Can you change your focus from ‘what you are doing’ to ‘who you are being’? For does not the latter drive your actions, your thoughts, your words? Time is an illusion and you exist simultaneously in the past, present and future. Another concept difficult to grasp, but worth reflecting upon.

You do this everyday in your mind, reliving what happened in the past, looking forward to the future and often not even being mindful of the present.

But you also are doing this energetically as there is no linear timeline in that realm. What does this mean for you? That there is always time to do what needs to be done. That healing the present heals the past.

Your physical body need not be in constant movement. There is time for stillness. We remind you of the connection of all things. This means that for an action to occur, something else along the web of connection must shift first. This is where patience plays a role. And faith. That all will happen at the most perfect time. You experience this every day as you prepare the food for your physical body. Consider the steps you must take in this process. Can you extend this concept out to every part of your life?

Just as a seed opens underground and begins to seek the light so too does growth percolate within you and all beings. And much of this growth is unseen until a new petal bursts forth in all of its beauty. Nurture yourself and others as you move through this life. Allow for the time necessary for growth to emerge in all of its glory.

Do not judge yourself too harshly as you are slowly moving forward on your path. Just as the cells of your physical body replace themselves unnoticed by you. So too, does your spirit grow, your soul expand, your wings emerge for a most wondrous flight above the fray of fear on this plane. Also unnoticed by you.

Do not judge others harshly as they are on their own paths. Show them patience and compassion and encourage them to blossom in their own time. For as they grow, so do you. Their lessons learned are your lessons learned as you are all connected.

Honor others for their struggles and their growth. Hold them high and support them with love. No matter who they appear to be on this earthly plane. For they are one with you, providing opportunities to you for your own personal growth.

All are One. All are Connected. And each will grow in their own time. Allow patience to grow by slowing down your breathing. Five or seven breaths in, five or seven breaths out.

You have grown so much up to this moment and if you reflect upon your life, you will see this. Honor who you are and how far you have come. Understand that all will occur in due time. As every piece of the mosaic falls into place.

Worry not about time

Breathe into stillness

Allow patience to grow

And know that you have grown

Just while you have read these words.

We honor Thee for your courage.

Deep bow to Thee.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Discord

Do not despair any discord in your life

For after chaos comes calm.

And often the discord is present

To shake loose what needs to be said

What needs to be discarded

What needs reflection.

After the storm comes peace.

And soon you will be filled

With peace.

Dearest One, your life is filled with much chaos and discord at this time. It is the nature of the human condition. It is part of the process of growth and healing. Do not judge yourself or others. Think of the Mother releasing tension through eruptions or tremors. See this discord as a companion, as a roadmap to where you need to go next.

Times of stillness for you are very important at this time. For rather than push down the discord to be viewed at a later date, the time is now to reflect upon your life. Why has this feeling been stirred up within you? What part of your life needs more attention? What gifts can you give yourself or another? What gifts can you accept from another to help yourself move forward in grace?

You are surrounded by love. You are inculcated with love between and within every atom of your being. And often it needs to shake things up in order to discard the fear. Fear which has been present for so long within you, it has remained silently powerful as it guides you forward.

But as the vibration raises upon this Earth plane and beyond, there is much also occurring within you, as all are connected. The goal is to rise above the discord and find the joy in being. Seeing the joy, the beauty, which is present everywhere you look, everywhere you travel. It only requires a different perspective from you.

Change is possible. Actually, change is imminent and necessary for your personal growth. But instead of anticipating it with fear, can you see it as an offering of infinite possibilities. Movement is needed to prevent stiffness and stagnation. Without new experiences how can you see the strength and power which lies within and is emerging more each day?

Dear One, you are just like the Mother, stretching to allow for more of the wisdom to flow down within you. Stretching to make room for more love and compassion to fill your physical vessel as you experience new ways of being.

You are a source of joy for those from the unseen world, who watch your progress and growth. Remember that anything that occurs upon this physical plane is just a blip on the timeline of your eternal life. A concept difficult for the human brain to consider, but let us plant that seed for more reflection at a later date.

Whomever you meet, whomever you love is a divine being loved as dearly as you are loved by the unseen world. Each of you came to this plane for a personal experience of growth, and many as a catalyst for the growth of others. Remember this as you walk through your day. Remember that suffering is often the catalyst, the greatest teacher of all.

For those who are suffering, know that you are not forgotten, and loved dearly despite what you may think, do or say. For those who observe suffering, honor the strength within those who are experiencing these trials. See them as whole and filled with much personal power and strength, rather than downtrodden and weak.

For as you do this you help keep the vibrations around them at a higher frequency. As if you have given them a ladder to rise above their current state of being. And honor them for teaching you through their experiences.

You, Dear One, will experience discord on this journey. It is part of the cycle of growth. Reflect upon what might be causing that personal discord and how it may appear when viewed from another perspective.

Help and guidance awaits your call. It is always there for you. Along with respect and gratitude for all that you have experienced so far on this personal journey of yours. Divinity exists within you. Strength and power are the building blocks of your growth.

All is well with you

For you are divine in nature

And capable of such love.

You are never alone

And your experiences are lessons

For the entire collective consciousness.

Move forward in strength

You will succeed beyond expectation.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Courage

Coaching.thehealthycarguy.com

Each day brings opportunities

For growth

And often this requires

changing your perspective,

accepting your authentic self,

and pausing in stillness

for reflection.

Dear One, we have told you before what a courageous soul you are to have chosen this physical path for learning. Being embodied in a physical form rather than in your natural state as an energetic being brings with it many challenges on your path back to the Source.

Remember that you have much guidance and support from the unseen world. Your higher self is with you at all times. And the more you grow, the easier it is to strengthen your connection with your own essence of wisdom. Your journey is never a solo journey. It only appears that way while embodied on this physical plane.

As you continue down your path, there will be times to reach down and engage with the courage which lies within you. For following the same routine, the same mindset daily requires little from you. However, if you choose to view your life from a different perspective, to lovingly accept yourself with all your perceived flaws, and to be open to listening to another’s point of view; these are the times when courage is needed.

You, Dear One, are presented with opportunities each day to expand your consciousness a little wider. To see, to view, to hear without judgement, what the world around you is showing you. Acceptance of these offerings may not occur for you. But reflection may offer you another way to move forward on your path.

Do not immediately shut down when given a point of view opposite of yours. For often these interactions are opportunities to change your perspective and see in a way you never considered in the past. Often upon reflection, compassion may result, as you attempt to step into the shoes of another.

All of this requires courage. Courage to accept that there is another way, another viewpoint, different from your own. Reflection upon long-standing beliefs seen from another perspective may require you to walk through your fears. Fears of change, fears of being wrong, fears of missed opportunities due to a blind spot in your sight.

Dear One, all of these are just steps upon your path back to wholeness, back to connection with your true self. Ego has its purpose for being, but it can hold you captive in fear of being your authentic self, of accepting that change is possible and necessary.

You are loved beyond measure and are gently led forward through this maze of challenges to provide you more self-awareness and personal growth. Can you bring up that inner courage to pause and reflect? To accept yourself with all of your perceived flaws? For what you still do not realize is how those perceived flaws are truly gifts. When used in the right circumstances with pure intent, those ‘flaws’ can be strengths.

Accept yourself fully as you truly are. But also allow yourself times of stillness to reflect upon another way of seeing yourself and your world. Have the courage to be open to change. Be discerning, of course, but trust that the wisdom lies within, in tandem with the courage needed.

Listen, and if does not ring true for you, then discard what you have been given. But only after you have allowed yourself the time to reflect on the content. Ask for help from the unseen world and you shall be guided forward. Synchronistic events will occur to help lead you forward.

The final decision is yours, Dear One. For you have been given free-will to proceed on your journey as you wish. Know you are loved, beyond measure. You are a divine being on a physical journey. And you are held in highest regard for choosing this journey.

You shine so brightly from the light within.

Kaleidoscope colors swirling

With power, courage and love.

You are so much greater, wiser, courageous

That you can accept.

Accept this loving message

And move forward with grace.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Doing the Work

Enlightenment is the result

Of an awakening

To who you really are.

And the process of awakening

Requires reflection

And observation.

Are you ready for this?

Dear One, you are surrounded by divinity, you yourself are a divine being. But the process of being housed in a physical body has allowed you to become detached from your true nature. The road to enlightenment requires time and self-reflection.

Although you have many guides who are ready to help you on your journey, the work begins with you. The gift is not the enlightenment. The gift is in the process of awakening and becoming aware of the true nature of your being. For these moments of self-discovery can be intense moments of joy. Even if that joy comes after much trial and suffering.

For Dear One, this is the reason for your incarnation upon this plane. Just being told by another the how and the why of your present state of being is not of service to you. Small insights into your personal life are helpful to guide you down your path. But the personal work must be done by you.

Consider being given all the answers to a test without having had to prepare or study prior. What is the impact for you? Do you retain anything at all of what was given to you? However, if you spend hours preparing so that you truly understand the subject, do you not gain much more from the exercise?

The same is for your personal growth. If you do not spend the time in reflection and observation of the how’s and why’s of your behavior, how will just being given the information truly help you in your awakening?

The guidance you seek is not always provided in complete answers to your questions. Instead the guidance may lead you to the trailhead of the next path to take. The guidance may provide you with synchronous moments to provide the option for you to observe and decide how to best move forward.

And if there is a particular lesson you chose to learn this incarnation, each successive opportunity for learning it may be a little more difficult. For living without reflection does not allow for the AHA moment that is possible in each opportunity and the lesson will be lost.

You are held so dearly by all of divinity. Can you change your perspective to one of gratitude and reflection rather than one of being victim? This is not meant to downplay any intense suffering experienced by many. It is suggested to help you understand that all occurrences in your life are possibilities for growth.

Remember also that often what occurs in your life was meant to be a lesson for another. For prior to embodiment, your life’s possibilities were reviewed with loving intention. And often souls offer to experience certain interactions for the personal growth of other souls to be embodied at the same time.

Before you judge another harshly or feel extreme frustration in a situation, ask yourself if this is an opportunity for growth. For you or for another, for a nation, for the world. The complexities of the Universe are beyond the understanding of the human mind.

But the love that resides within your heart can provide much solace and peace. Allow the peace to gently send any thoughts on their way, not providing them a seat at the table. Just passing through as you reflect, observe and process a situation.

You will always have assistance and guidance in your personal awakening. But you must also do the work with each step you take forward.

You have the strength.

You have the connection.

And you are loved so dearly.

Help is always provided

Often in most subtle of ways.

Know the joy of awakening

To your true divinity.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Self-Doubt

Mayor of Belladon

You are a most powerful being

Able to create your world

By changing your perspective.

Why then, do you doubt so

Your ability to move forward

In love?

Dear One, this world in which you live, your entire existence, is held in sacred union with the Divine at all times. The unseen world supports you with every breath that you take. You are held in gratitude for incarnating at this time to do the work which can only be done from this plane. And yet, you doubt yourself, your existence, your purpose, your power.

Understand better the workings of the Universe as we tell you that life here unfolds FOR you. Life does not happen TO you. The challenges which arise can be viewed from many vantage points. Do not always choose the most negative perspective. For this only causes you distress when always there is a more positive, joyful way to view your life.

Your intuition, your higher self, guides you at all times. If you can allow your heart to open and shut the chatter of your mind, clarity will come. Reflection of all actions, words or thoughts is always helpful. But not when the self-judgment continues to replay over and over again.

If you can trust and walk in rhythm with the Universe by trusting your intuition, then you will be able to see the thought, the word, the deed, for what it truly is.  An opportunity for growth, for change. You are not able to see the true effects of what happened a moment before this moment. For your physical body limits your sight, your movement and your understanding.

Can you begin to accept the actions of others as another step forward on their own paths. The brief interaction you had with them may be the perfect impetus for them to reflect and make a change in their lives. The seed has been sowed, perhaps to be nurtured at a later time, when conditions are more favorable for growth.

There may be no immediate outcome or there may be opportunity for more clarity, more conversation or more action. Can you trust your intuition enough to follow it, to follow your heart in all that you do? Can you see those you judge instead as wounded souls trying to find their way? And can you allow others to grow at their own pace, with relationships chosen by them for their greatest lessons?

You, Dear One, are a teacher to many, a student of others, and an integral part of the All That Is. The web of connection joins you with all sentient beings here and beyond. Your presence is powerful and often all that is required for the next step forward. Trust. Trust. Trust that you have the strength, the capacity to love and the opportunity to grow in the most wondrous way.

Do not let fear hold you back. Instead, listen to your heart. Act with authenticity and integrity in all that you do. And understand that you are not aware of all the possibilities of outcome that may occur in the next breath which you take.

You, Dear One are divine, able to move mountains. Do not cower in self-doubt or fear. Trust the connection that you have with the All. Understand that the lessons were chosen by you prior to your birth. And always, always, always you have a sacred connection with the Source.

Breathe in that strength of connection and breathe out love to all, including yourself. Self-reflection is helpful, but self-doubt will undermine your forward progress.

Stand tall and acknowledge

That the Universe supports you

In all that you do.

For knowledge is gained

Through every experience

No matter through what colored lens

It is viewed.

You are One, you are Sacred, you are Loved.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Change

Can you leave your comfort zone

And allow for change in your life?

This is how you grow

And allow your light

To brighten and expand.

Dear One, it feels safe and familiar to follow the same pattern every day of your life. But you are here to grow, to expand and to experience all the diversity this physical life has to offer. And in order to do this, it is necessary for you to take a chance, without expectation of outcome. Trust that any change you make will be a step forward. Always.

You know not what joy awaits you, what inner strength will emerge, and how fear will slowly dissolve with each step that you take. The possibilities of what awaits you around that corner are endless. Remember not to place limits on what is possible, for your human mind cannot fathom the infinite outcomes that await your next step forward.

Change may not only be in what you do, or where you go, but in how you relate to others. Can you listen more keenly to what another has to share? Can you be guided forward by how your feel rather than what you think? Can you see an adversary as someone just like you, slowly moving forward into the unknown?

Even the familiar can be seen differently if you change your perspective. By seeing the Divine in everyone you meet. By spending time in stillness in familiar surroundings and allowing yourself to feel if something no longer serves you. By seeing all as if for the first time with no preconceived notions.

Fear is what holds you back. Fear is what allows your mind to remain closed and shallow. And fear is what prevents you from feeling the joy that is your true nature. The joy of being. The joy of discovery. The joy of trusting that all will be well no matter what occurs in your life. Can you move away from this illusion that fear has draped over the true nature of your being and of your reason for being here at this time?

What happens if you close your eyes in a familiar place? How does your perspective change? What other senses stimulate how you feel? Can you shut off the mind, quiet that chatter and just be? This is when the clarity will occur. This is when the urge to make a change, to take a chance may come forth.

The belief in the status quo is just an illusion, for everything changes with every breath that you take. Your surrounding change daily. It may just be your perspective that refuses to see what is truly there. Relationships ebb and flow, nature moves through the cycle of life with every season. And you change, from your physical vessel to your emotional state.

Realizing this truth may help you to stop avoiding change in your life. For it is already occurring, quietly and daily. Your comfort zone either expands or contracts each and every day. So why not step forward, a little farther out from your center and test the waters. Without expectation and only with trust that it will bring unexpected pleasures into your life.

Allow your perspective to change by trusting your heart in how it guides you. Trust that you have the inner strength to take that chance. Change the filters through which you view your world and give others a new chance to teach you how to be more loving and compassionate.

The lessons abound, they are coiled and ready to emerge, coupled with strength and joy, just awaiting your next step. Take in a new breath and release the hold fear has upon you. You were meant to experience so much more in this lifetime.

Take a chance.

Trust that you have the strength.

Move forward without expectation.

For all will be well

As new paths are forged

To bring joy and change

Into your life.

It begins with you

Dear One With All of Thee.
