Why Do You Doubt So?

Why do you doubt yourself so much?

Why do you think you have done nothing;

That you should do better?

Why do you not see the love that surrounds you;

The love you have shared

And the love you have inspired?

Dear One, there is so much doubt that hovers around your being. And for what purpose? Do you not see the beauty of your being? Do you not feel the love that lives within you and that surrounds you? Why do you feel so alone when you are a part of a web of loving connection, ready to help at your first call? Why do you continue to doubt yourself when you have done so much for this world and beyond?

Remove the blinders that cloud your sight. Open your eyes and your heart to those around you and clearly see how you have changed this world. You, yes you, have made a difference in the lives of so many others by your mere presence. You have affected all of creation in your choice to be present here today upon this plane of existence. Your deeds have not gone un-noticed, nor have they had no effect on the lives of others.

This world as you know it is experiencing a time of great change and you are here to partake in the process. You chose to be here at this time to help move this plane forward and upward in vibration. And you have done so much already. You do not see how you inspire others by your strength, by how you live your life. You do not see it because living the way you do is so natural for you.

There are many here upon this plane who require help and encouragement. They need examples of how to live a life filled with love. They have forgotten who they really are and the power that resides within them. If you are reading these words, you are on your way and have come far enough to reach out and help others who struggle so. You have been there yourself and found your way to this point and for that effort, for that life lived, we thank you.

Do not doubt yourself and the effect you have on others. Do not compare yourself with others and think you need to be more like them. For Dear One, each of you has a unique gift to share with this world and are led to those who will gain the most by your presence. What you do does not have to be so large an action that the entire world knows of your actions.

You are part of the many who are quietly doing their work. And it is you and those like you who are helping the most, reaching others around you just by living your life with loving kindness. Do not look upon another and doubt yourself because you are not more like them. You are perfect in every way and have touched others by being just who you are.

Not all are called to leadership in the grand scale that you see here upon this plane. In truth, you are all equal in your ability to move mountains, to inspire and to comfort those who are so downtrodden. You, Dear One, are perfectly placed to reach those who need you. And most often, you will never see the results or the effects your presence has had on others. Just as others who have inspired you will never know how they affected your life.

Have more faith in yourself and in the workings of the Universal Plan. For indeed, there is a plan with many from other realms gently guiding humanity forward. Know how much you are loved and how much help is available if only you ask for it. The free will you have been given can lead you to make choices which make your experience more difficult at times. And yet, contrary to what you may think, every step you take is a step forward.

Change your thoughts and your critiques of your life. Replace those criticisms with thoughts of love and connection to the higher realms who reach out to you in gratitude. You have done so much, experienced so much to get to where you are today. Honor that path which you have traveled, for much of it has been challenging. But you are here and you have so much further you can go if you allow yourself to be free from doubt and self-judgment.

Dear One, reach out and reach up when you are feeling so inept at your life. Allow those who love you, in this realm and beyond, to enfold you in their loving embrace. We hold you in deep gratitude for what you have done to this point. And we ask you to continue. For your presence, your help, will be greatly needed as this plane experiences the great changes that are occurring.

You are never alone

You have more power and connection

Than you ever realized.

And your presence is needed at this time.

Walk in love

Knowing that you are surrounded

By those who offer support

For every breath, every step that you take.

Do not doubt your uniqueness

And how you are quietly doing your part

To change this world and beyond.

Dear, dear One With All of Thee.

Service to Tribe

service to tribe

blue spiral © Gill Hobson 2011 http://www.imgfave.com

You are a part of a tribe

Be it local, worldwide or universal.

You are not alone in your existence

During this current lifetime.

How do you interact with

And serve your tribe?

Dear One, we have encouraged you to understand that you are not alone on this journey of which you have taken part. We have explained to you the web of connection and how you are affected by the ebb and flow of its movements throughout your day, throughout your life. Now let us review this same concept in terms of your tribes.

Whether or not you consciously participate, you are a member of more than one tribe. In the physical realm, it can be familial, local, national or worldwide. You belong to each and every one of these tribes. You also belong to the wondrous collection of souls who expand across dimensions, across the universe, in different shapes and forms. All are in the process of acquiring knowledge to share with others.

Each of you has a unique position within these tribes, a position only you can fill because of your personality, your gifts, your strengths and your perceptions of the existence of being surrounding you.

In truth, you are contributing to some of these, if not all of these tribes unconsciously. Your mere existence, your state of being, contributes to the state of the All in each of these communities.

The teachings of these writings have encouraged your personal growth to help with your own awakening to prepare you for this current state of being. Understand that in order to contribute your finest tithe, it is important to experience personal piece of mind and self-love. For the most generous contribution you can make is one of unconditional love to all of creation, at all levels of your existence.

Despite the complexities of the connections in this web of existence, forward movement is accentuated by a very simple concept. And that is the concept of love. We have encouraged you to do the personal work on yourself. For how can you love another when you cannot love yourself? How can you contribute joy when your personal shadow self has not yet been embraced by you? Can you begin to understand that you are perfect within your deepest well of being?

You were created by the Source and so you embody a part of the Source within you now. Reflect upon that for a moment.

You are here for the purpose of self-discovery, not only for your own personal growth, but for the growth of the Source. Reflect upon that for a moment.

The challenges you experience are given to you in order for the All of Creation to experience self-discovery through you. You are a conduit of knowledge sending information back, just as you are also on the receiving end of knowledge being sent to you.

If you begin to see your life in this way, you will understand the purpose in it. Your existence is not of random chance. Your experiences are not given as rewards or punishments. They are cause and effect of situations presented to you and the choices you made on how to move through those situations. There is no judgment because each decision made will provide another opportunity for growth. And how you grow, the discoveries made throughout your life, serve your tribe with the knowledge gained from those experiences.

However, once you begin to accept your connection to the All, you will understand that your light will affect others as you enter a room. Your mere presence will have an effect on others in close proximity. Your emotional state will travel across the web of connection and affect others, to either build an existence of love or of fear across your world and across realms.

That being said, understand that there is a reciprocity between and among beings. So that for every moment of fear you experience, there is love awaiting your acceptance to balance out that negative state of being. So too, when you move forward with love, you are offering a state of joy, holding others up to their highest potential as they move through their day.

The contribution you make to your tribe begins with how you are unconsciously moving through your day. As you grow and come into a state of awakening, you will be able to consciously contribute loving energies to those around you and to the All. And soon, it will become a way of being, understanding that the web of connection provides a powerful means to expand the collective consciousness in a loving way.

You, Dear One, are never alone

You exist within many tribes

Which can either nurture you

Or pull you down.

It is your choice to which tribe you belong.

It is your choice what you wish to contribute.

But know that all of life is a collective journey

Of self-discovery for the All That Is.

Of this you are an integral part.

Dear One With All of Thee.

 

Observation

What is it that you see

As you look around your world?

Do you see the same as others?

Are you seeing reality

Or an illusion

Affected by your own beliefs

And judgments?

What is your reality?

Dear One, as you move through your day and interact with others and with nature, can you be sure that what you see is true reality or an illusion? We have told you before that you create your own world. And your creations are affected by your emotions, your biases and your spiritual growth. What do you see? And if you look a second time, will your vision of reality be the same?

How much do you fail to notice as you move through your world? Walking around encased within your mind, thinking of past or future events, how much do you fail to observe throughout your day? Have you missed the silent cues offered by others, the nuances that reveal true meaning masked by your misperceptions of someone or something? Are you able to move forward with neutrality and open-mindedness as you view your world?

Human emotions can cloud your vision and Ego can encourage you to see only through one lens of perception. But what if, what if you were able to just listen to another with the intent to learn from them? What if you were able to observe without expectation and familiarity? You often believe that having seen something, having met someone, that you know and understand exactly what they have to offer you. When in fact the complexity of human existence can create new experiences with every encounter you have, even with the familiar.

The key is to be open and receptive to what is being revealed to you. Human ego tells you that you know and understand a situation because you have experienced it once before, because you have walked that path once before. When in fact, life exists within a web of connection and something you feel is familiar has changed between encounters, often in subtle and sometimes momentous ways because of this connection.

Consider your physical body and how it changes every day. Consider the forces of nature and how they change every day. Consider your emotional state and how that changes every day. Why then would not the world you observe change every day as well? It would serve you well to step back from that assumption that your knowledge is complete about a person or a situation. Can you approach your day as a naïve child, as if seeing everything for the first time? For indeed, you are.

Take the time to listen, with complete focus on what you are hearing; to see, with complete focus on what you are observing, to feel, to taste, to smell as if for the first time. The complexities of life can reveal much to you if you move forward with an open heart, with the awareness that what or who you are encountering has something to teach you.

It matters not if you have different viewpoints during a discussion. It matters not if you do not like what you see or experience. Rather than judge, ask yourself what you can learn from this situation. Upon silent reflection, you will be surprised at what might enter your consciousness and how well it can serve you as you move forward upon your journey.

Dear One, make no assumptions about anyone or anything, for all of creation is in constant flux and nothing remains static. You do yourself and others a disservice if you approach your day without the humility of a student knowing that they have much to learn. Your network of connection to all things has much to teach you, if you allow yourself to see what it has to offer.

The result may be a wondrous feeling of awe, inspiration or pure joy as you observe beauty where you once saw only ruin; strength rather than weakness; or gentleness underneath the hardened exterior. All are possible as you change your way of observing your world.

Be present

Be aware

Put aside your emotional attachments

And see through a neutral lens.

Your vision will clear and show you

A world more loving and beautiful,

A world in constant movement

Towards knowledge and connection.

For you are and always will be

One With All of Thee.

Desire

What is it that you desire?

Does it elude you at every turn?

Or can you see the path forward

To reach your personal goals?

Are you certain of what you want

Or is it displaced desire for something else?

How do you tell the difference?

Dear One, the truth is that you have everything that you need emotionally and spiritually to move forward on the path you have chosen for this lifetime. You are loved unconditionally, have more power than you recognize and are gently being guided forward with every breath that you take.

Yes, many live a life filled with challenges and the human mind sees these challenges as lack; of love, of power, of the bare necessities required for a life of prosperity and health. What you do not remember is the choices made before you embodied the vessel which carries your very soul this day. You do not see the big picture and continue to view this life as a singular existence controlled only by external conditions.

Dear One, can you take a different view of life here upon this physical plane? Can you view these challenges as a means to an end; growth for you or for the world? Because all are connected, your life has meaning and purpose for moving the conscious collective forward in a way not possible on other realms.

Can you reflect upon how far you have come because of the challenges laid before you? And having had these experiences, can you see how you are in a better position to be compassionate towards others, to teach others who now face the same experiences you have had? Can you understand that many souls purposefully embodied for a life of physical challenges in order to inspire and encourage others to live a more compassionate life filled with gratitude and grace?

This physical existence is but a mere blink of an eye for a divine being with eternal life. Your position in this life was chosen by you to learn or to teach the lessons required for the forward movement of the Universal All. Contracts were made for interactions to be encountered while on this earthly plane. And all of these decisions made prior to embodiment were motivated by love and only love.

This way of being has been enhanced by the loss of memory of who you truly are and how you are connected to each other on this physical realm and beyond. But the time is now for you to begin to remember the truth of your existence and your purpose of being here in the life you are living at this very moment.

Yes, choices made prior to embodiment were pure but sometimes without the realization of the pull of the physical existence. For this plane offers many experiences not available elsewhere and without the memory of the initial contract, some have veered off course and not fulfilled the promises made.

But more and more of you are now awakening and beginning to see the connections across realms and how this life is an illusion created for the purpose of learning. Many have come as a catalyst to encourage others to move forward with grace and love.

Reflect upon that which you desire and ask yourself if this desire comes from your physical being or your divine being? Is this desire motivated by gentle guidance to lead you down your chosen path? Or is that desire a product of allowing the physical world to dis-empower you?

Remember that you are loved unconditionally and despite what occurs upon this physical plane, you will be welcomed home with open arms and a loving embrace. For you cannot fail in this lifetime of physical existence. Everything that you experience is another lesson learned by you and by the All.

Honor those who have chosen challenging lives for the purpose of moving the All forward. Honor your greatest adversaries for giving you the opportunities to move forward in grace. Open your eyes and view this physical existence for what it truly is, a learning ground for the Oneness of All. And honor yourself for having the courage to experience this plane embodied in a form which creates the illusion of separateness, lacking the memory of who you truly are.

You, Dear One, are now awakening to the truth of your existence. Discard your old views of this world and allow a different perspective to guide you. Open your heart and allow the love within to emerge and embrace this world. Walk in grace, take back your power and honor the connection you have with the All of Creation.

You, Dear One, have purpose.

You have grace and more power than you realize.

Dig down deep and allow the memories to arise.

And see things as they truly are.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Loss

Is it truly taking something away from you?

Or is it a transition to a new way of being?

Does the impermanence of this life set you back

Or gently guide you forward?

Can you accept these changes with love and gratitude?

Can you understand that it is not truly a loss

But a transformation of being

 For you and others?

Dear One, this human existence allows for many forms of transformation, of loss, as you see it. There is the loss of a livelihood, of possessions, of health or loved ones. With each of these changes in your life you grieve, for an old way of being. But after the grief is over, can you look forward to the possibilities that these transformations provide for you?

Remember the web of connection, how all of existence is affected by your actions or by those of another. Remember that you are gently guided forward every moment of your existence by loving beings who encourage you to grow. And remember that without change, there is no forward movement.

Loss of a loved one is not truly a loss, but a transformation of being. That is to say that your loved one is still present in your life, but in a different way. Be it through a transition to an energetic state as they leave their physical body behind, or in a relationship that has changed, the connection is transformed but still remains; for all are connected.

As the grief, the anger, the emotion subsides, are you able to step back and take a wider view of this transition and how it affects you? Can you see what the gift might be in this transformation occurring in your life? For there is always a gift present in every transition in your life, if you can view it from a different lens.

Yes, the transformation may bring new challenges for you, but do not despair, for you always have support waiting for your call for help. Ask for guidance, for the ability to see things more clearly, as you step onto new ground, moving into uncharted territory in your life.

Dear One, what occurs to you is never a punishment, but an opportunity for personal growth. For your reason for being here upon this physical plane is to experience personal growth in a way unique to this existence. Please remember that you are a divine being who has more power and connection than you realize. And often these transitions occur to open your eyes to seeing yourself and your world in a different light.

This is a time of awakening for all. A shift in consciousness is occurring and it will challenge you to look through a different lens. Remember the times when what you wished for never occurred and at a later date, upon reflection, you were relieved that your wish was not fulfilled.

The challenge of this physical life is that you can not see the whole picture. The perspective that you have is a more personal one and does not include seeing how the connections of the All are affected. There is an intricate network among all of creation which ebbs and flows with the movement of energies across the spectrum of life. Can you trust that love is the hand that moves this vast cosmic connection forward?

Dear One, again we tell you what courageous souls you are to have chosen this physical life. For with it came a loss of the memory of who you truly are and how you are connected to the All. However, the time is now ripe for your awakening to this truth that has been buried deep within you for so long. It is emerging as you realize that the way of being to which you have been accustomed for so long is no longer working. And it is time to change your perspective.

There is never truly loss, only transition. And you have the strength and the help to move through these transitions with grace. You are more powerful than you realize and can create a world of love and abundance. Embrace the love which surrounds you and use it to change the world. For change begins with you.

Through which lens

Do you choose to see your world?

The choice is yours

And you have loving beings

Eager to guide you forward.

Rediscover who you truly are

A divine being on a physical journey,

Empowered and connected.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Recognize the Sacred

sacred

http://www.flickr.com momento en la Praia de Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro 2012

You are surrounded by the sacred

For all of creation is sacred.

Every moment in time,

Every interaction,

Every breath you take is sacred.

An expression of the Divine.

Dear One, in order to promote the change that is coming to this world, it is necessary for you to recognize the sacred in all that you see, in all that you do. If all of creation comes with purpose from the Divine, then all of existence is filled with the breath of the Divine.

The human mind, this human existence, has steered you away from the concept that all need to be treated with respect and love. You have lost your way because you have lost your ability to see the Divine in all that cross your path. Every molecule that forms every life form is an extension of the Divine.

This hierarchy of power which your societies have created leads only to dead ends. This external source of perceived power feeds only the Ego, but not the Soul. And the soul is where the true power, the true connection to the All exists.

Both Ego and Soul are necessary for existence here upon this plane. Each serves its purpose in the forward movement of the Universal Being. However, the balance between both no longer exists. One is aware of the connection between all of creation, the other relies only on Self to propel itself forward in competition and judgment.

Sacred connections abound in your daily life, be it with the Mother or with any of her charges. But many of you have forgotten the language to speak, to recognize the sacred interactions that are presented to you. This lack of communication, lack of recognition, has led you astray as you focus more upon individual existence and self-absorption.

Would your life not be much easier with conscious communion with the sacred? Would not acceptance of a community of kindred spirits help you discover and realize your purpose for being? Would you not feel more at peace surrounded by love rather than fear and competition?

It begins with you, Dear One, as you remember the connection, the sacred connection, you have with the All That Is. It has been so very long since life was shared in respect and harmony rather than in judgment and discord. But change is possible and reflection upon these words will help open the channels for change within your very being.

Can you begin to see that the creation of this world had a purpose, and that purpose was one of self-discovery for you and for the Divine that lives within you and all things? For every part of creation is another expression of the multi-facets of the Divine. Sacred existence with sacred purpose for being.

You, Dear One, are on the cusp of an awakening so wondrous that all of creation is watching in anticipation. All want you to succeed and come into better understanding of who you truly are and how you have always been surrounded by love. The time is coming for you to remove the blinders that limit your view of your life and that of your world.

Begin now, at this moment, with a breath of release, a breath of acceptance of the sacredness of your own existence. Do not think yourself unworthy, for how can someone who is a part of the Divine be unworthy?

View your life, your world, your surroundings from a different perspective. See the Divine in all who cross your path, in all that you touch, all that you eat, all that you see. Begin to see the sacred threads of existence that connect you to all of creation. For if you do this, you will change how you interact with your world from this moment on.

Walk in love

See your world through a new lens

Allow the sacredness of the All to surround you

And to guide you forward

With the acceptance

Of your own Divinity

Your own sacredness

Dear One With All of Thee.

 

Letting Go

Your life is filled with experiences

Both joyful and sad.

Remember them all with gratitude

For they have brought you

To the place where you now stand

In all of your wisdom and glory.

Dear One, because this life is meant to be experiential, you have had a plethora of interactions and situations in your life for the purpose of your own spiritual growth. Many seem insignificant while others appear to be important relationships, yet in truth, all have equal value in your forward movement.

For each has taught you something, about yourself or another, about how you wish to live your life, or perhaps how you choose not to live your life. Every person who crosses your path has a potential lesson for you to learn. Can you honor each one with gratitude for the offering extended to you?

Synchronicity plays an important role in your forward progress. The complexity of the web of connection is too vast for your human brain to understand. But there is an ebb and a flow, just as you see spiderwebs moving in the breeze. So too, does the web of connection move and pulse with information, with energies flowing back and forth between and among all of creation.

The experiences that you have had were meant to allow you opportunities for growth. And if you can review those experiences as a neutral observer, you will see the interplay between all concerned. During your life you have touched many others and will continue to do so while you complete your time upon this physical plane.

Dear One, can you move forward in love and release the emotional ties that you have to the past? For they now just exist within your mind and often memories are skewed by emotion. What matters is the present, the now, and how you move through this moment in time.

Forgiveness, compassion, gratitude and non-judgment are important for letting go of past events. For each of these requires you to vibrate at a higher frequency. As the energies continue to rise upon this plane, you will be more comfortable if you can adopt this way of seeing your world.

You chose to be here at this time of transition and how you respond to your current life will help move this process forward. Can you take a breath and send only love out to all who have crossed your path? Can you cease to re-act with emotion to circumstances in your life? This does not mean that you should suppress the emotion. In fact, to embrace it and send it love is the best way to move through it.

Pain is a part of this physical life, but how much that pain causes you to suffer is your choice. Remember that you are not alone in experiencing sadness or pain. Can you embrace that pain and pay attention to what it is teaching you? Seek help, of course, if that is necessary. But do not mask it with a smile in an attempt to ignore its existence.

You are a child of the Universe and loved unconditionally. You have the support of the All of Creation behind your every step, your every breath. Understand, Dear One, that all is well in your world. You are alive, you are breathing and you are capable of creating change in your immediate world and beyond.

It begins with love and only love. That is your sword of light to use as you move through this day and every day. It is more powerful than you realize and yet so gentle to use. Send out love, Dear One. And include yourself as you realize how far you have come on your personal path.

Your presence in this world has made a positive difference in the lives of many. Release and let go of what has come before this moment and focus on allowing your brilliant light to shine, sending love to all.

There will be a time when you will understand why you have had the experiences you have had. Until then, trust that you are gently being led forward by the soft breath of the Divine. It exists around you and within you, for All of Creation comes from the same Source.

Honor this day with love.

Honor your past with love

And release it to the ethers.

For lessons abound in every step you take.

Not only for you

But for the All

Dear One With All of Thee.
