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.

This Moment

Today

What do you feel?

On what do you focus?

Are you aware of the love

Which surrounds you?

Are you able to give gratitude

For where you are

At this very moment?

Dear One, this moment, this very moment is all that exists for you. The past is a memory which resides in your mind and the future is not yet written. But today, this is the time that matters for you. The choices you make this very moment will affect tomorrow. What personal awareness do you bring to this very moment?

Your entire life is filled with choices, with opportunities for growth. Ones made in the past have brought you to this very moment in time. They have helped to create the person who stands before you in the mirror today. No mistakes were made, only choices.

Were those choices made in fear or in love? Were they made with expectations for certain outcomes? Have you offered gratitude for getting to this point in your life’s journey? And what have you learned from the paths you have chosen?The most wondrous thing about this human existence is that you have free will and can change the direction of your path at any time. Some changes may be more challenging, but Dear One, the choices are yours to make.

If you choose healing for another, for the world, understand that it begins with you. How you move through your day affects the currents across miles, across dimensions. But remember that all have free will and having expectations of another’s response may leave you saddened or disappointed.

You are connected to every atom of creation, far and wide. This means that changes you make within yourself do affect others, though perhaps not in the way you wished. For each are on their own journey with wounds or challenges of which you may be unaware. And the affects you have on another may not be apparent to you.

Respect and love for all of creation, including yourself, are such powerful tools for healing. Logical reasoning may lead you down the path of judgment. Going there is not advised as you do not see the entire picture of another’s life. Instead, begin with yourself, with loving and respecting yourself, no matter what your past holds. And do so for others as well.

Do not see yourself as victim, but as strong and courageous and powerful as you create a new way of being in this world. This is a time for reflection and processing how far you have come and which direction you choose to go next.

Honor others as they go through the same processing as you are experiencing. Do not see others as victim for that holds them in lower vibration. Instead, hold them in light, in strength and in joy. See them already healed, able to grow exponentially surrounded by the loving light in which you hold them.

Begin this moment, this day. They need not see the world as you see it. That is not necessary, for their experiences have been different than yours. But they are capable of love as are all of creation. And all are on this journey of self-exploration. The journey of the Divine experiencing Itself through you.

Do not forget that the internal flame within your heart is that part of the Divine which glows within each and every one of you. This is what you all share. This is how you all are connected. Through the loving flame of the Divine.

Choose this moment to begin anew, to trust that you have all that you need to move forward in love. You are held in such loving embrace by the Divine. And if you cannot feel that in your waking moments, ask that you feel/see it in your dreams. For those are times of learning also, when you can more easily connect with that which you hold dear.

Feel peace.

Know peace.

Begin this very moment

To choose love

For yourself and others.

It is your natural state.

Dearest, 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.

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.

This Day

pbs.twimg.com

This day contains

Moments of stillness

Nuggets of joy

And a plethora of peace

Whenever you choose

To accept them.

Do so often.

And share these moments

With the ones whom you love.

Dear One, you are the one in charge of how you move through your day. No one other. You are the one who has the choice to see beauty or darkness. No one other. And you are the one who has the ability to send either love or fear into your world. Which will you choose today?

The world you see is viewed through whichever lens you choose. It is a world of duality. Which means that there is both light and darkness to see. You have a choice to move through your day breathless, with fear or anger. Or you can breathe deeply, sending love outwards with every breath. It is entirely your choice what kind of world surrounds you.

You still do not realize the power which you hold to create your own world. Yes, you live in a physical world with billions of other incarnated souls. But you also are connected to a world not yet visible to most, which vibrates at a higher frequency. A world of love and light and peace.

You are capable of settling in either of these worlds every moment of your day. For you have a foot in both worlds, more heavily weighted in the physical at this time for most of you. And yes, this physical world is a classroom provided for your own self-realization. And the time is now for you to graduate to the next level. You are ready.

As long as you are incarnated in this physical vessel, you will always have a foot in this physical world. But you are ready to more evenly share the weight of your consciousness in the unseen world as well. What does this mean to you? It is simply retrieving your power which you have so readily given to this physical world.

You are currently a slave to time, which does not exist in other realms. How do you break this bondage? Begin by acknowledging that there is plenty of time, by believing that all will occur at the most perfect time.

For remember your connections spread across infinity and often pieces of others’ lives must fall into place before your experience can occur. Rather than rushing to your destination, can you take a breath and say, ‘I am on my way’ and calmly complete your journey.

This physical world encourages you to re-act to others, to give your power to them by allowing them to cause you anger or fear. And you often respond in kind.

When, if you were weighted more in the other realms, you would understand that responding in kindness and compassion can cause THEM to re-act in kind/kindness. Or at the very least, to stop the negative exchange and allow it to become a more loving one.

You have the power to do this, Dear One. And yet, so many of you continue to give away your power rather than use it to raise the energetic vibrations of any exchange.

For every physical being present in your life creating strife and discord, there are multitudes of others who are quietly working to make a change. To send love out into this world and beyond. And for every incarnated soul who causes you despair, there are a plethora of unseen hands reaching out to hold you close in loving embrace.

This is the truth of your existence and it is time for you to begin to practice placing more weight, giving more attention to the loving environment rather than the chaotic physical world around you.

We have told you this before, Dear One, that YOU are the one who can change this world. One step at a time. One breath at a time. Gently, quietly, lovingly. Every moment of your day provides opportunities to do so.

Begin today in this very moment. Send love out to your world, to those you love. And to those with whom you have had many challenges. All are experiencing their own personal lessons.

And those heavy loads can be lightened so easily by recognizing that you have a foot in both realms. That you have more power than you realize. It is just a matter of a shift in consciousness. Give more weight to love than fear. To kindness rather than animosity. To compassion rather than judgment.

Change your perspective

Change your world.

Embrace the unseen help

Which surrounds you at all times.

Open your heart to the possibilities

Of love, of joy, of peace.

It begins with your next breath.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Listen

Open your heart and listen.

To the guidance that resides within.

And gently use that guidance

To speak to others

To guide them forward

Until they are able

To connect in the same manner.

Dear One, all are on the same path. All are One. But each of you is in a different state of awakening as you find your path home. For those of you who have reached a certain equilibrium with your internal guidance, it is time to listen. Time to speak.

The world in which you live is moving through a cycle of growth which appears chaotic and defeating. You may feel helpless when in fact, you are in the perfect position to help. It begins with listening to that voice within, that voice which comes from your heart, from your connection with the All. You all have heard it, though many still do not trust it.

It is the voice, the feeling, the urge to do something, to say something, to go somewhere. At this time in your own evolution, this guidance may encourage you to gently, though often firmly, take the next step forward. Can you begin to listen and trust what you are being told? Can you begin to trust your own power in contributing to the growth of this world and the realms beyond?

Dear One, you have already had experiences which you question, synchronicities which have caused you to wonder, was it real? Do not compare yourself to others, saying that you are not worthy, are not evolved enough spiritually to have this experience. Do not feel this experience is an anomaly. For it can and does happen in your life every day, if you listen.

By holding back and not saying or doing or going where you are guided, you are allowing fear to take charge. The world needs you and the smallest gift of kindness, of honestly speaking your truth, or of being where you are led can make a most wondrous difference in the world as you see it. You are the solution. For as you move forward, you allow the space, the opportunity for others to do the same.

By doing nothing, by questioning your worth, you are helping to hold this world in its current state. Remember that you are connected, not only with all sentient beings you see, but also to all sentient beings who are unseen. And you have support to be successful in your efforts, in your life.

Remember the cascade in life which begins from the smallest of actions. Acting in response to your guidance, in the best way you can, will create movement for someone who may be stuck. The response may not be what you anticipated, but if done in love, the action will begin the process of awakening for another. And as more and more embodied souls begin to awaken, the energetic vibration rises throughout this world and beyond.

The time is now for you to begin to accept your role in the evolution of the All That Is. Allow yourself to be the conduit of love helping others to begin to glimpse the infinite possibilities in their lives. Understand that often it is your mere presence that is all which is required to support forward movement.

Wrap yourself in light. Wrap all whom you meet in light. Wrap your world in light. And if there is an upcoming situation which causes you trepidation or fear, wrap that situation in light. It can be as simple as that.

You are needed, Dear One. You chose to be present in this world at this time. And we gently encourage you to reclaim your power. The power which comes from love. Act in love and have no expectations of the outcome. For if your intent was pure, you are on your way.

And as you continue to grow, and you will, you may reflect upon past actions and see how the next time, a small change would be kinder, gentler and more powerful. Movement is required to prevent stagnation. Perfection is present in every interaction, if only to allow for more growth and reflection.

Trust your connection. Honor your own truth. You have already grown so much and will be supported to continue on this journey of self-realization. What is found at the end of the journey? Something indescribable with human words. The realization that love is all there is.

Trust yourself and your connection

Understand that growth is required

And is occurring every moment of your life.

Choose to make a difference

By coming from your own truth

And from love.

That is all there is, Dear One.

Dear One With All of Thee.

We Were Made For These Times

I ran across this piece by Clarissa Pinkola Estes recently and wanted to share it with you as it is so appropriate for today’s world. Many of you may already be familiar with it. But it is worth reading again at this time. Many blessings to all. Shine your light brightly!


My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times. I have heard from so many recently who are deeply and properly bewildered. They are concerned about the state of affairs in our world now. Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment and often righteous rage over the latest degradations of what matters most to civilized, visionary people.

 You are right in your assessments. The lustre and hubris some have aspired to while endorsing acts so heinous against children, elders, everyday people, the poor, the unguarded, the helpless, is breathtaking. Yet, I urge you, ask you, gentle you, to please not spend your spirit dry by bewailing these difficult times. Especially do not lose hope. Most particularly because, the fact is that we were made for these times. Yes. For years, we have been learning, practicing, been in training for and just waiting to meet on this exact plain of engagement.

 I grew up on the Great Lakes and recognize a seaworthy vessel when I see one. Regarding awakened souls, there have never been more able vessels in the waters than there are right now across the world. And they are fully provisioned and able to signal one another as never before in the history of humankind.

 Look out over the prow; there are millions of boats of righteous souls on the waters with you. Even though your veneers may shiver from every wave in this stormy roil, I assure you that the long timbers composing your prow and rudder come from a greater forest. That long-grained lumber is known to withstand storms, to hold together, to hold its own, and to advance, regardless.

 In any dark time, there is a tendency to veer toward fainting over how much is wrong or unmended in the world. Do not focus on that. There is a tendency, too, to fall into being weakened by dwelling on what is outside your reach, by what cannot yet be. Do not focus there. That is spending the wind without raising the sails.

 We are needed, that is all we can know. And though we meet resistance, we more so will meet great souls who will hail us, love us and guide us, and we will know them when they appear. Didn’t you say you were a believer? Didn’t you say you pledged to listen to a voice greater? Didn’t you ask for grace? Don’t you remember that to be in grace means to submit to the voice greater?

 Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul, to assist some portion of this poor suffering world, will help immensely. It is not given to us to know which acts or by whom, will cause the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good.

 What is needed for dramatic change is an accumulation of acts, adding, adding to, adding more, continuing. We know that it does not take everyone on Earth to bring justice and peace, but only a small, determined group who will not give up during the first, second, or hundredth gale.

 One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times like these – to be fierce and to show mercy toward others; both are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity.

 Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.

There will always be times when you feel discouraged. I too have felt despair many times in my life, but I do not keep a chair for it. I will not entertain it. It is not allowed to eat from my plate.

 The reason is this: In my uttermost bones I know something, as do you. It is that there can be no despair when you remember why you came to Earth, who you serve, and who sent you here. The good words we say and the good deeds we do are not ours. They are the words and deeds of the One who brought us here. In that spirit, I hope you will write this on your wall: When a great ship is in harbor and moored, it is safe, there can be no doubt. But that is not what great ships are built for.

Have I Done Enough?

aceoni.deviantart.com

You want to help

To make this a better world.

But you do not feel

That what you do is enough.

Is it?

Dear One, the world in which you live is in transition. There is much fear and animosity, judgment and blame. There is a lack of compassion and empathy. More thoughts of self-preservation rather than community and connection. Have you done enough to help change this world?

Understand that each and every one of you has been provided with a unique gift. The life you have lived up to this moment in time has taught you much, about yourself, about the world. There are experiences that you have had which filter the way in which you see your world. Is your vision of the world an accurate assessment of how things really are?

Few of you will be in a position previously held by many of your greatest leaders. However, the personal experiences you have had can and will make a difference in someone’s life. And you must remember that there are many who are quietly helping to change your world, without recognition, without fanfare. You are one of these people.

The very act of living your life in a most purposeful way with kindness, strength and compassion will often affect more than you realize. And how you affect others may never be known to you. For often it is a brief encounter with a stranger, a small token of kindness, an exhibit of strength during a trying time which guides another forward.

For not only do others see what you have done in that moment and consider emulating your actions. There is also that energetic component to your presence and the energetic exchange that occurred during the interaction which can be so powerful.

Your scientists are now beginning to talk about the unseen world and how it encompasses much more than the world which is visible to you. Remember this. It is time for you to pay attention to the energy which surrounds you and which you emit as you move through your day.

Great sweeping actions are not necessary to move this world forward. It is often the smallest of actions which can change a life. Because of the experiences that you have had over your lifetime, you may be in a perfect position to offer guidance, or at the very least, compassion to another who is struggling.

Be aware, also, that you are constantly being gently guided forward through synchronicity to situations, to others; to interactions which can provide the perfect lesson for each of you involved. Remember that the gift you have received may be dormant until you have had your own challenging experiences. It may not be until this time when you blossom into the person who can provide so much to another.

Dear One, you do not exist alone but in a matrix of consciousness which is in constant motion. Your thoughts and words are just as powerful to the movement of this matrix as your deeds. Remember this as you reflect upon your life, your worthiness or when a harsh judgment arises about another. We will continue to impress upon you the power of these energetic exchanges.

You are an expression of the Divine, Dear One, who is capable of creating a world much different than the one you see. And it begins with how you live your life, how you see yourself and how much you trust the synchronicities which occur.

You have the metaphor of a snowball gaining mass as it rolls down a mountainside. So too, can a small action of yours begin the process of change, in a positive or a negative way. The choice is yours.

As you move through your day, through your life, understand that every moment has the potential for creating change. Even if it is to send out love with every breath you take. The efforts need not be large and expansive. They just need to be loving and kind. For this is your true nature and has the greatest power of all.

Accept the gift of you

Accept the gift of others

Who have passed through your life.

Whether the interactions have caused

Solace or strife

There is still a lesson there

Which can help change your world.

It begins with you

Possible with every breath you take.

Walk in love and gratitude

And change the world.

Dearest One With All of Thee.

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.
