Rebirth

As you shed

The skin of your former self

There is a more luminous body

Waiting to emerge

In all of its glory.

Dear One, this life you lead here upon this physical plane is cyclic. As you move through the challenges, as you receive those AHA! moments that guide you forward, always you are uncovering the depth of your strength and connection to the All.

This plane of duality provides endless opportunities for growth and revelation as you walk the tightrope between light and dark. There is a purpose for this dichotomy of life. And it is to enhance your progress forward in self-discovery and realization of who you are and of what you are capable.

As you move through this delicate balance of joy and despair, judgment and compassion, love and fear, remember that the opposite of what you are experiencing is just a breath away. These opposites are components of the tight weave of life, of who you are and how you choose to see your world.

Even in moments of despair, beauty surrounds you, moments away from allowing you to experience a flash of joy to permeate the darkness. As you walk in judgment of another, there is always that opportunity present to lean into compassion with just a small shift in posture. And love is always with you slowly wringing out the last drops of fear which weigh you down.

All of these opportunities are present with every breath you take. The choice is yours, which way you wish the pendulum of emotions to swing in the arc of your life experiences. And each time you drop the veil of darkness which surrounds you, a bit more of your luminous body emerges.

You are shedding the skin of doubt and fear and allowing a new beginning to be born giving you new tools to use for the next challenge ahead. And as you progress, you will begin to see these challenges more as opportunities to choose how to move forward.

Feel the emotions you must feel as you begin to discard the old ways of being. Allow them to rise and dissipate into the ethers. The human body was specifically designed to allow for these emotions to help move you forward. You are strong enough. You are connected enough. You are loved enough to allow them to move through you like a hollow bone. Up and out. Up and out.

Dear One, nurture yourself as needed, for living a life of grace begins with loving yourself. Seek help in ridding yourself of the wounds that bind you. Understand that the door to your prison has never been locked. It just required you to see your life differently, though the lens of love.

There is rebirth occurring all around you. Just spend time with the Mother and observe the tender first steps of her charges as they navigate their new lives. So too with you, Dear One. Each day you have the opportunity to navigate a new way of being. The choice is yours through which lens you view your world.

Choose love and clarity of vision. Allow the loving forces which surround you to guide you forward through the intense emotions you may be feeling at this time. All is temporary. All challenges provide you with choices on how to proceed. And all paths, all choices, continue to lead you back to the Source.

See the joy which surrounds you. Test the waters on each side if you must. But know that you are never alone. Know that you are loved unconditionally. And know that there is much strength within you. The entire Universe exists within you and a luminous body fuels your life with love.

Accept this love.

Accept the gift of this life.

Accept the gift of you.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Follow Your Heart

Allow your heart

To be your compass.

As you navigate this world

Of chaos and challenge.

Dear One, your heart is your compass during these trying times in your world. Turn off your mind and allow your heart to guide you forward. Your mind will steer you towards detours and dead-ends. But your heart is your connection to the All That Is. And what could be more sacred?

There is a Universal heartbeat across all of infinity. When you have a decision to make, sit quietly and allow your heartbeat to match that of the Universal heartbeat. Expand out and allow them to connect. And then listen to the guidance you receive.

Can you have the faith in this connection? Can you allow yourself to be a part of the All That Is and cease your habit of trying to analyze and do everything alone? Why would you turn away from the loving guidance that is offered you to follow a mind often swayed by Ego and misperception?

This is an experiential existence. That means that you are continuously being given opportunities for growth. Your interactions with others are opportunities for you both to grow in faith and love. All is offered to you in non-judgment, for you have a choice of how to proceed. You can take the opportunity to see with your heart or with a judgmental eye.

Dear One, these opportunities are offered to you daily in all aspects of your life. How you respond will either accelerate you on your path or hold you fast in your current position. All of you are wounded in some way for this is part of the human condition. But will you choose to hold that wound close, as a badge of honor, as the story of your life? Or will you choose the opportunity to take a step forward in faith and love?

There is no judgment in the choices that you make. For each of you has a personalized curriculum of growth, that will allow you to move forward at the speed which you choose. No matter your choices, you will once again return to the loving embrace of the All upon your transition from this physical plane.

But the suffering you experience would be lessened if you would choose to take the opportunities presented to you to grow and discard those stories you hold so dear. Every interaction is an offering of love, of growth, of change. And in many cases, you are just the messenger, delivering the package of opportunity to another.

Should they decline to accept what you offer, do not take it as a personal affront. For they are not ready to discard an old way of being in their world. Instead, embrace with gratitude the personal lesson you have been given with that interaction and move on. Allow the person to grow in their own time, at their own pace. You may have set the stage for the next personal interaction they have to chip away at the wall of resistance they have built around them.

Reflect upon the interaction, give gratitude for what you may have learned about yourself and bless them as you move on. Ask for help in seeing what you were meant to see and respond in love and with faith that all is as it should be. You are helping no one if you continue to persist while putting yourself in a position that is detrimental to you physically or emotionally.

Dear One, each and every one of you is a child of the Universe, loved unconditionally. Each and every one of you is watched and guided with love. Accept these gifts that are offered to you daily. Do not consider yourself unworthy. How can you be unworthy when you are a part of the Source, a unique and important cell in the body of God, of the Oneness?

When worry and doubt begin to fill your thoughts, change them by choosing faith instead.

I choose faith.

I choose love.

For I am a luminous being

Slowly discarding

The heavy cloak of doubt

That I have carried for so long.

I choose faith.

I choose love.

I choose freedom.

For I am

One with All of Thee.

Walk with Grace

Feel the connection

You have with the All.

Open yourself to the love

Which pours into you.

And share that love

Throughout your day

With all who cross your path.

No matter who they are

Or what they have done.

Dear One, you are the one who can change this world as it continues to grow and expand. You are the one who can guide it forward towards a world of love instead of fear. You are the one who has the power to gently swing the pendulum back towards the light. You are the one.

Do not question your power or your ability to do this. For you are a most powerful being placed here upon this plane to help move it forward into love and higher vibration. Yes, you will have days where you feel it is not possible, that you are too tired to move forward and cannot make a difference.

To all of this we say, pause, take time to replenish yourself and ask for help. For we are waiting patiently, yearning to help, but cannot without your permission. You have and always have had free will during your time here upon this plane. You have our support, our blessing and our unconditional love.

Open your hearts and allow the power of love to fill you and re-energize you when you feel you are fading. For your human form has its limitations and must have time to rest and replenish. The physical depletion caused by too much activity can and will affect your mental and emotion states. Your spirit remains powerful and strong, but it does exist within these fragile physical bodies.

The goal is not perfection in this physical world, but awakening and forward movement. Your definition of perfection differs from that which we would call perfection. For your physical senses distort and often confuse the true nature of being. For us, all is perfection, even this world of duality in which you live.

Grace comes when you allow the natural flow to begin and move often in directions you do not see as correct. But once again, we remind you that your vision is limited from your viewpoint. If you could raise your vibration and seek the higher purpose for all that occurs, you may begin to have more clarity in what is occurring in your life, in your world.

You have not been forgotten. You have not been abandoned. Far from it, you are held in highest esteem and surrounded each day with the love of the All of Creation. You are gently being guided forward to situations where you can be the catalyst for change, where you can do your finest work.

Each and every one of you has a unique gift which can help move this plane and consequently, the Universe, forward. The challenge for you has always been trusting that you are capable of doing what is placed before you. Your internal fears and struggles continue to whisper in your ear that you are not strong enough, not good enough or do not have the knowledge to complete the task at hand.

We are here to tell you that you ARE and that you are perfectly positioned to help others using the skills you have attained, with more internal grace than you realized you have. You, Dear One, can and do make a difference every moment of your day.

And so we say to you, trust in yourself and your connection to the Oneness. Be more present in your daily life so that you can be more aware of the gentle guidance that is occurring for you every day. We do this not in your spoken language, but with synchronous opportunities, with those sudden impulses to change your plans, or by preventing actions until everything is in place to provide forward movement.

You have all experienced these situations, yet not attributed them to the web of connection, the guidance from those who love and encourage you in your daily life. Do not diminish the power of the connections of all living things. You are but one cell in a body of the Divine and affected by the ebb and flow of the breath of the All.

Grace is an innate component of your essence. In other realms it is a natural state of being. It still exists within you now, but is more difficult to express due to the challenges of this physical world. Allow it to emerge in all of its glory and walk with a lighter step.

All of this is possible

For you are a divine being

Temporarily housed in a physical state.

You can change the world.

Believe in yourself

And your own divinity.

Believe in yourself as we believe in you.

Dear, dear One With All of Thee.

Come Together

As you grow

Come together.

Grow together

As you share experiences

Of life and love,

Through the cycles of your lives.

Dear One, do you not realize the cyclic nature of your being? Life for you ebbs and flows just as it does in the Mother, who surrounds you with her beauty. It is through these cycles of growth that you can shed your old skin, and be reborn, glistening with love and strength.

The strength comes from the previous experiences you lived through and survived. Just as a young sapling holds tight with its roots, during the storm. It is your core, your inner strength, which keeps you rooted and able to experience the changes occurring around you. It is your faith, your trust in yourself and in the natural order of life that sustains you through the chaos.

For chaos is and always has been present in your life cycles. This is how the growth begins. As the energies swirl around and through you, your inner strength emerges to help you sustain your divine grace. These changes can shake arrogance and judgment from your core, replacing them with humility and compassion.

All grow from these cycles of life. And when you come together and share them, the growth becomes exponential in scope. Reflect upon how often the best of others comes out in times of great need. Often, you observe strength and endurance you never thought possible during these times.

Come together in celebration of life and living and the many opportunities to clear the air and re-oxygenate with pure love and grace. The Mother helps in this process by initiating many of these movements of energy for the purpose of wiping the film from your eyes. So that you are able to see more clearly. To see your place in this world. It is not front and center, but an integral part of a web of wondrous beings, each with a gift, with a part to play in the growth of this world and beyond.

Dear One, understand the connection that you have with all of creation. You were not meant to live this life alone. That, in fact, is impossible because of this infinite web of connection. You are being gently guided forward, you are being embraced and supported, and you are being held in gratitude for the service you perform for the self-realization of the Divine and the collective consciousness.

Come together and celebrate the diversity you see, which exists along with the common traits among each and every one of you. Look past the complexities, the chaos, and see the simple elements, the building blocks which are present in all situations, all interactions.

You live in a world in flux, in a Universe built on energetic vibrations which rise and fall, ebb and flow, and change form constantly during the course of your life. You need not strive for perfection for it already exists within and around you. What can be perfected is your perception of this world.

You are a part of this transformation of energies, for you are also an energetic being. Think of the vibration of the atomic molecules which form your human body. And think of the spirit, the soul, which lives within that physical form. Now expand that out and imagine how all of creation is also vibrating in the same way, interacting with you in ways you never before imagined.

Dear One, you are part of a magnificent tapestry of life, all connected, and all in flux, as energy is always moving and never static. Embrace the cycles of your life, of your day, of your world, immediate and beyond. This is by design to provide the best opportunity for self-discovery and growth.

Allow for the waxing and waning in your life, just as you see it in the cycles of the moon. At times it shines brightly in full luminescence, while at other times it fades into darkness, a brief rest until the cycle begins once again.

Come together.

Embrace the ebb and flow of your journey

Here upon this physical plane and beyond.

Join your fellow travelers

With love and compassion

As you experience

This miracle of life together.

You are One with Them

You are One with All

One With All of Thee.

 

What Have You Learned?

What have you learned

In this life of yours?

Reflect upon how far

You have come

And you will be surprised

At the progress you have made.

Dear One, so many of you are self-critical as you think about your life this day. You look only at what you are not, what you have not yet accomplished or what you have done wrongly. Perhaps you should be kinder to yourself as you reflect upon and see how far you have come in this life of yours.

The human condition is so focused on certain ideals that need to be acquired in order to label yourself as a success. Who initiated this concept? Why would all of humanity be required to follow the same path in order to be admired and considered successful? We question this as most of the ideals are truly inconsequential in your path back to the Source. And many of these ideals are transient as they change with each new generation that comes into maturity.

Dear One, do not shudder as you remember actions or words expressed previously in your life. The mere fact that those memories cause you discomfort shows how much you have grown. That is what this life is meant to be, an opportunity to experience different scenarios in order to learn and grow. We have said before that the Source experiences Itself through you, as you are a part of the Divine. That is truth.

This quest to be perfect in the human condition only causes distress and self-recrimination. How can you learn if you do not fall? Is it not more important that you pick yourself back up and continue to be present in your life and in the lives of those you love? What a perfect lesson in humility, compassion and forgiveness.

We have mentioned before that what you see as your flaws are also your greatest strengths. It is the discernment as to when to draw upon these traits that leads to maturity and personal growth. Do you not understand that because of your experiences, your perceived flaws, that you are in a perfect position to help others move through the same lessons? And understand that this knowledge learned crosses realms far beyond this plane.

Oh, Dear One, you are already perfect in every way. The challenge for you is to understand that this perceived reality is but an illusion created for you as a learning ground. And you have learned so much and shared so much knowledge already with others here upon this plane and beyond. Those challenges with which you struggle only make you stronger and prepare you for future events when your strength will be needed for others around you.

You are wondrous and have come so far. Do not, do not minimize all that you have already learned. Share those lessons with others. And for those still seeking, look to others who have experienced similar situations for guidance. Be observant of others rather than being self-absorbed and you will see how others struggle as you have. Depending on where you stand on this curve of knowledge, reach forward, reach backward, reach upwards or below and connect with others. They are your community, your source of strength and guidance, and there is much to be shared in all directions.

Remember the connection that is ever-present between you and all of creation. It is difficult to acknowledge this when you are in the midst of a challenge. But if you can remember that you are not alone in your suffering, that others have experienced the same, that loving arms reach out to help you, oh how that will ease your pain.

Dear One, you have come so far and are ready for the future. You are already awakening at a rapid pace. Of this, you may not be aware, but those of us who lovingly watch over you can see the progress and celebrate your passage into a new way of being each and every day.

Honor yourself for waking up each day and being present, despite the challenges.

Honor your connection with all of creation by being respectful and kind to all living beings.

Honor your progress as you reflect upon how far you have come.

You have more strength than you realize.

You have the power to create your world

As a most loving and gentle world.

But it begins with you

And how you see and treat yourself.

Do so with kindness and compassion

For you have come so far.

And the future possibilities

Are infinite, beyond measure.

Dear One With All of Thee.

What Can You Do?

what can you do

Klimt 

 What is it that you can do

To help with the transitions

Occurring at this time?

Be of love

Have compassion for self and others.

And allow time for rest

And replenishment.

Dear One, can you understand the sweetness of your light, the calmness of your presence, the power of your attention, as you continue to grow and evolve. You have come so very far. Do not doubt that. You have been helped and have helped others to reach your current state of being. Now is a time of reconstruction, bringing all who are willing back to center.

Much has occurred in your plane over the recent times and you have experienced many transitions to reach this point in time. But as is always the case with this physical existence, there will be more changes coming.

Do not fear the future, for it has not yet occurred. And because of the strength and knowledge you acquired over the recent times, you are better prepared to move forward in grace and in love. You have formed stronger connections with the other realms through your reaching out for help and guidance.

You have learned of the undercurrent of fear that is present in your world. It has been brought to your attention in a manner that no longer allows you to be complacent. You have reached out and found other like-minded souls to share the work that now lays before you. For now, knowing what you have learned, it will be difficult to do nothing.

The way to move forward will be different for each and every one of you. For some, it will be a matter of being aware of the beauty which surrounds you and of offering gratitude for all the gifts and abundance in your lives. This action alone, offering gratitude for what surrounds you, helps to increase the vibrational energies on this plane and beyond.

Others may be the catalysts for change in the way this world exists, from one of fear and alienation, to one of love, compassion and community. This can be done nationally or globally. But it can also be done individually as each of you moves through your day. Can you take an honest look at how you perceive your world and those around you? Can you see how your institutions and way of being have served only a small sector while others suffer in silence?

You, Dear One, will now be able to see without the blinders which have clouded your vision for so long. You have been helped to get to this point by many of us in other realms who are lovingly guiding you forward. We have told you before how difficult this physical existence can be. Do not doubt that we are always here to help and guide you forward. And we celebrate that you have reached this point of transition in your evolution.

See the cloaks of fear which have covered you for so long fall off and disappear. For on an energetic level, that is exactly what is occurring. Some will feel it greatly and be aware of the shift in energies within and around them. Others will notice a difference, but not understand what it is. And still others, who are so comfortable in those cloaks of fear, will draw them tighter around them. Show them compassion and love, for they have not yet awakened to the glorious possibilities of this physical existence.

Dear One, you are holy, you are divine and you are a part of the collective consciousness which is affected by the evolution of this physical world. Many of you are walking with a foot in both worlds, the seen and the unseen. To you we say, care for those physical bodies, for much rest is needed during this time of transition.

To all, we encourage you to walk in peace and in faith, in yourself and in the loving guidance which surrounds you every moment of your day. Do not doubt the power which lies in your hands, for it is great.

Walk in light.

Walk in love

And allow yourself

To be guided forward and beyond.

You are so precious to us

Dear, dear One With All of Thee.

What is This Life?

What is this life you live

Here upon this physical plane?

For what purpose do you exist?

And how do you know

If you have succeeded?

Dear One, you were created in love, are a creature of love and are embraced by love with every breath that you take. Your personal challenges are just lessons presented to you in order for you to discover your inner strength; your connections with others; and the help available to you if only you call for it.

Your challenges were never meant to be taken on in solitude. Though often times of solitude bring you the inner awareness to better understand yourself and others. The challenges that present themselves to you can be seen in many ways and it is up to you to choose how you view them.

Challenges are opportunities, for growth and self-discovery, not only for your own personal growth, but for the growth of the All. Dear One, you are an extension of the Divine Source of All That Is. And it is through your learning that the All, the Source, also experiences self-discovery and growth. It may seem outrageous to some to consider this concept, but realize that nothing that exists is stagnant. And that includes the One, the Source of All That Is.

If you did not have reasons for personal reflection and growth, there would be no need for you to have embodied on this physical plane. The Mystery Schools present themselves to many in different planes of existence, in different ways of being. And here upon this physical plane you are able to get a taste of the power of pure love and connection.

There are many levels of learning. And this physical plane is only one of countless forms of existence which allow the expansion of the Universal Being. You are a part of the All. We have told you this many times. And we understand that the very nature of physical embodiment makes it difficult to accept this connection which you have with the All of Existence.

Your scientists have proven the existence of energy. You have felt it yourself and many have understood the exchange of energies which can help or hinder another. Know that the true nature of this plane is one of goodness and love. How can it be anything else when created by the Divine Source?

What this plane is experiencing at this point in time is the result of your free will. For you have been given this in order to test the waters, just as a babe tests her abilities as she grows more confident each day. Whatever occurs here upon this plane is valuable for the collective consciousness. And there are many from other realms observing how you navigate this challenging form of existence.

Know that all are cheering you on and are willing to help and guide you forward to overcome the feelings of inadequacy, powerlessness and fear. Contemplating your life here prior to embodiment, many thought it would be an easy task. But the human condition has many alluring features which can lead you astray from your original conceptions of physical life. The web of connection between all of existence is very complex and unexplainable in your ways of speaking. But understand that many are here to be catalysts for change, to urge you to take actions you may not have taken without these souls here to challenge your way of being.

It is easy to become complacent in your life because of many of the beliefs which you hold about life and what is necessary for successful living. Many souls have chosen to experience severe challenges to encourage you to act with compassion and love. Honor those souls who came into being knowing that they would suffer for the purpose of the greatest good. And remember that this physical existence is but a single breath in an eternal life of being and learning and loving.

Dear One, do not doubt yourself or what you are capable of accomplishing here upon this physical plane. Many are led to ‘greatness’ or leadership. But a simple life lived with love and faith and service is also a life of greatness. Cease your judgment of others, no matter what they do. Instead, learn from them. Ask yourself, ’What can I learn from this person and how they live their life?’

For each and every one of you has something to teach another, be it how to live or how not to live. Embrace the impermanence of this physical existence while understanding that you make a difference with every breath that you take. For you, Dear One, are holy. All of life, of creation, is sacred. No longer walk in fear. Follow your inner guidance and feel the joy of your existence here upon this physical plane.

Engage all of your senses

As you experience your life here.

Cease judgment

And seek knowledge

From all who cross your path.

And know that you are a teacher yourself

With every breath that you take.

You are loved and admired beyond measure

For the decision to be here upon this plane.

Dear, dear One With All of Thee.

Much gratitude to thee.
