What Do You See?

As you gaze upon your world

What do you see?

What do you hear?

How do you feel?

Now change that perspective

To one of love and compassion.

How does that change your world?

Dear One, all are here upon this physical plane to learn and to grow. And becoming aware of the different view you have when the lens is changed from one of fear to one of love is a part of that growth. What changes if you look through the lens of compassion and gratitude? When was the last time you chose this viewpoint?

You can see another as an adversary or as a teacher. You can view a situation as a difficult trial or as an opportunity for growth. You can hold onto the fear of lack or feel gratitude for the abundance in your life. The choice is yours.

Like attracts like. Those who live in fear seek out others who feel the same. And together they construct a world filled with lack, inequality and judgment. But this is their world. Is the world you have chosen the same?

Have you chosen to join those who live a life void of joy, of laughter, of appreciation for the beauty which surrounds them? Have you dulled your ears to the sounds of the birds singing their songs? Have you judged the downtrodden thinking that you are more entitled than they? Have you forgotten that all are connected?

Times of great trial often reveal your true nature and how you view the world. Those you thought were generous and compassionate become self-serving and judgmental. But also, those you thought weak and lacking show immense strength and abundance of spirit.  Which are you?

Each and every one of you has the capacity for greatness of spirit and love. For these are the traits which were instilled within you at the time of your creation. You have a part of the Divine within you. For every creation holds a piece of its creator. Reflect upon all that you have created in this lifetime. And how a part of you exists within those creations.

Dear One, it is your choice how you live this life here upon this physical plane. And you can change your perspective at any moment, from fear to love or back to fear.

Do not judge yourself harshly, for you are as a child learning to take those first steps. There is unsteadiness, but there is also someone there to support and encourage you. The same is true now as you continue to find your way. And that support comes in many ways, seen and unseen.

In times of great challenge, stop and take a breath. And ask yourself which fork in the road do you choose to take. Reflect upon how far you have already come on your journey. And if some of those steps were taken off the path, do not judge yourself. Understand that all the choices made brought you to where you stand today, in this moment.

If you do not like who you see in the mirror, look around you and see with whom you have surrounded yourself. What fills your immediate environment, is it light or darkness, is it love or fear? Look deep into the eyes of that person reflecting back at you. Can you see the sparkle of light coming from deep within? It is there. It has always been there. And it is connected to the Divine and all of creation.

You have the strength, the power to change the world in which you live. And it is possible that only a change in perspective will make a tremendous difference in your world.

Can you see others as fellow travelers on similar paths? Can you hold everyone who crosses your path in love? Even if they invoke memories which cause you pain. Pain may be unavoidable for it is a part of your growth, but suffering is your choice. Forgiveness, of self and others, will free you from the chains of suffering. Love, of self and others, is the key to freedom.

What do you see this day?

Does it cause you suffering

Or bring you joy?

Reflect upon your perspective

And the power you have

To change the world

In which you live.

Create a world of love

And know the joy of life.

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.

Expansion

saatchiart.com

The Universe is in constant motion

Expanding at all times

Into unknown territory

Exploring the possibilities of being.

The question today is

Are you?

Dear One, it is so easy to fall into a routine, repeating old patterns that are familiar and comfortable. But how does that afford you the possibilities for growth? If the world around you is changing every moment of every day, how can you not?

Your physical body sheds old cells and renews daily. The air around you moves in different patterns each day. The energetic vibrations of this world and beyond are constantly increasing in frequency. Over time these adjustments have been slow to match your comfort level. But the time has come for expansion to accelerate. And this expansion includes you and your personal life.

What does this mean for you? Consider your current state of life and if it serves you? Are you depleted energetically at the end of each day? Upon reflection at day’s end, do you feel as if you have grown? Or are you just repeating old motions time and time again, without thought, without emotion, just robotic existence in a world filled with possibilities?

Dear One, review your life and ask yourself when the last time was that you stepped out of your comfort zone? You are an eternal being, but your existence upon this physical plane is limited. The time spent here is a gift to you for rapid growth and physical beauty. This time will end and will you regret your lack of engagement as you leave this plane of existence?

How often have you chosen not to try something new out of fear, out of boredom, out of exhaustion from the constant repetition of your life? Have your senses dulled, your communication skills faltered, your gratitude to experience a new day with all of its possibilities dissolved into nothingness?

The Universe is expanding and that includes you and the possibilities for you to add to the knowledge of the collective consciousness. Rest, indeed, if your physical form requires replenishment. But ask yourself what can be changed so that you are not so depleted of the joy of existence. You are a most powerful being, divine in your connection to the Source, and so why would you turn away from the gifts, the opportunities presented to you each day?

Dear One, pay attention to how you approach each day, each opportunity for engagement. Change your perspective of how you see your world and your placement, your role to play in this web of connection. You have been given free rein to explore and grow, but the time has come where the knowledge and the skills you mastered will be needed as expansion accelerates.

Stop, take a deep breath and reflect upon how you have chosen to exist on this physical plane. And if you are not satisfied where you are, then ask why you have not made a change. Remember that your mind limits the possibilities while your heart opens up a wealth of opportunities for you.

You have power over your mind, rather than the reverse, which is how so many of you have existed for so long. Begin by changing your perspective. And if you require help, ask. 

Take a moment to write down your thoughts/concerns every morning and every evening. Then discard the paper. Do this every day to remove the fear and anxiety from within you. See those thoughts as something separate from you as you discard them and observe how it begins to change your life. This is how you reclaim your power over your mind.

Allow your internal flame to glow once again with its greatest intensity and power. Accept this power from within. And understand that opening your heart to new experiences provides you with opportunities to connect with other divine beings. And the results of these connections on this physical plane are more powerful than you realize.

Open your heart

To new experiences

And new ways of being.

Reclaim your power as a divine being

As this period of Universal expansion accelerates.

You are ready

You are needed.

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.

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.

Can You Feel It?

There is change afoot

And it begins with you.

You are the impetus for change

In your life

And in your world.

Dear One, the universe is in constant change, evolving and expanding as the energetic vibrations continue to rise here upon this physical realm and beyond. You are an integral part of this change. You can make a difference.

The mindset that is required to be altered is the impression that you are a single individual, unconnected to the world and all that exists. This type of thinking is encouraged by your housing in a physical body which feels separate from all of existence.

But there is a purpose to this physical existence and that is to remember who you truly are in spite of the physical separation you feel. The cord of humanity is connected to the collective consciousness despite your perception of singularity and individuality.

In truth, you all are individual beings of light with your own personalities and paths of learning as your souls continue to grow and evolve. But what is difficult for the human mind to grasp is that you can be unique and yet be an integral part of a whole.

It is time for you to see your life from a difference perspective, as an individual cell in the body of the Oneness. You study this concept in your physical bodies. Your scientists continue to discover how the components of your physical body interact and support each other.

Consider the possibility that your physical bodies were modeled after the universe. All individual components capable of contributing to the whole of which they are a part. In one sense, it seems impossible and yet you exist in a simplified version of the whole of existence. Ponder this.

If you accept the truth of this, can you begin to understand the design of the All of Life? Individual cells differentiated due to the role they will play in the whole. Some become aberrant due to negative influences which often the entire body can overcome with extra care and attention.

The same is true for your universal existence, Dear One. You are one of those unique cells with a specific purpose in the life of the All. Each of you has a particular purpose to fulfill, none too minor to be respected and honored. For each cell is needed for the survival of the whole.

This means, Dear One, that you can make a difference and that your existence affects the entirety of being. But instead of participating in a physical capacity, your energetic reach goes further than you realize. For energy flows out into the cosmos into infinity.

You are an energetic being existing within a physical body. But that physicality need not restrict you in any way. You are much greater than this physical form in which you are temporarily housed. And as the energetic vibrations continue to rise across dimensions, you will be guided to reach further, to reach higher than you have ever attempted before.

The time is now, Dear One, for you to alter your way of seeing your world and beyond. We tell you once again that you are a divine being with more strength and power than you realize. And that power comes from the connection you have with the All of Life.

Do not diminish your capacity by saying you cannot, you are unworthy or that it is beyond your abilities. You are just beginning to awaken and it is time for you to shine. Take the chance. You need not understand the whys. All that is required is the belief in possibilities. And those possibilities begin with you.

You have the power of the Universe lying quietly within waiting for you to release it with love. The key to opening the door of change is love. Only love.

Take a chance and open the door.

And see the power of change.

You are the vehicle of change.

Can you feel it beginning to stir within?
