Growing Pains

 

Just as physical growth

May cause some discomfort

So too, spiritual growth

May do the same.

But know the end result will be wondrous.

Dear One, growth comes with its own process and often discomfort. Spiritual learning may cause you to reflect upon issues long buried deep within your being. And it is the brave soul who allows these issues to percolate and emerge for reflection and release.

The human psyche is well developed to allow you to move forward despite many hurts or disappointments. And often this is done by burying those feelings so that you are able to survive the moment and carry on.

But eventually, especially if you have opened to your spiritual path, these long-forgotten feelings must be brought to the surface to be faced with love and forgiveness. For they sub-consciously affect how you walk through your world even though you do not remember them. What was initiated as a protective measure for you may become an anchor holding you back from further progress upon your path.

It takes courage and faith to allow these feelings to surface and we encourage you to seek help or counsel if you are struggling with what is emerging. It is a part of the process of the cleansing of the soul which will allow more light to emerge as a result.

Dear One, if this is happening to you, it means you are ready, you are strong enough, you have the support to allow this process to continue. Trust in yourself and do not attempt to over-analyze what is occurring. It is more helpful to focus upon what you are feeling rather than what your mind is thinking. For the human condition in many cultures encourages thinking over feeling. And it is time to recognize your feelings and allow them to be heard.

The world is changing, the universe is expanding, and all sentient beings are affected by what is occurring. There are many upon this plane who are very aware of this and who are working very hard to help others to raise their vibrations to ease any discomfort these changes bring to them.

If you are struggling, reach out to others whom you trust. If you have come to the other side of those growth spurts, reach out to those who are confused about what is occurring in their lives. Remember, all are connected. And as one person works through long-forgotten issues, all others gain. This is because you all have similar issues, with varying degrees of intensity, but still they are universal across the human condition.

As you continue to grow, and indeed you will and are growing, love and compassion will become a more natural response to incidents which occur in your life. This includes self-love and self-realization of how far you have come in this earthly life of yours.

It will include compassion for others as you begin to reflect upon the common traits of the human condition and how the spectrum is affected by the level of personal awakening of each person. You will begin to reflect upon how you speak to others, how you listen to others and how you act toward others.

This is in your future, Dear One. But it requires effort on your part, and some discomfort, as discomfort usually goes hand-in-hand with growth. However, you must remember that you are not alone in this. Many others are experiencing the same as you. And you have much help available to you from both the seen and the unseen worlds. Reach out; either for help or to give help. It is all connected and each person’s progress will affect you also.

You are a being of light

Brave enough to live in a world of duality

Where the lessons can be challenging

But not insurmountable.

Help surrounds you

Reach out and take it.

For you are loved and respected

Beyond measure

Dearest One With All of Thee.

Perception of Time

How do you move through your day?

Are you thinking of the future?

Reliving the past?

Or are you enjoying the moment

Exactly as it is unfolding around you?

Dear One, as you have read before, the only part of your life which enables you to take action is the present. Contemplating the future or the past puts you in a state of being which exists only in your mind. The possibilities of enjoying the present moment are minimized as your mind takes you elsewhere. Your conscious attention is drawn away from what is occurring in the now limiting your potential for growth.

In reality, time does not really exist as you perceive it with your conscious mind. In truth, you are existing in multiple time frames simultaneously. Does this sound too far-fetched for you? Then consider how often you are traveling from one physical place to another while your attention is far away either in the past or the future. Is this not existing in two time frames at once?

And have you been productive in either of those times as you co-exist in both at once? Have you not missed what is occurring in your immediate surroundings at the present moment? Have you contributed anything other than worry or anxiety to the past or future moment which you consider in your mind? Once again, we tell you that the present moment is the only point of action.

Can you instead focus all of your attention on the present moment? Seeing, really seeing and observing, what is occurring at this time. Truly listening to what another is saying rather than already forming your response while they are still speaking. How many opportunities have passed in the present while you have been in your mind thinking of other times?

Dear One, your life can be infinitely more enjoyable if you are able to truly be present in the moment. If you feel you need to plan for the future, or reflect upon the past, then set time aside to put all of your attention on either of these tasks. For, indeed, reflection and contemplation are required for forward movement on your path. Allowing yourself the time to meditate or to write will help you to clear your mind of those thoughts which continue to vie for attention through-out your day.

Remember also, that your perception of past encounters can be altered due to your emotional state. To be able to see things more clearly, ask for help and clarity as you reflect upon the past. If you are certain how you want a future event to unfold, give gratitude for it as if it has already happened as you wish it to happen.

You are more powerful than you imagine. But you require more practice in focus and release. Focusing on what you are truly feeling, on how you want your life to unfold and what is happening at this very moment in time.  Multi-tasking is not as productive as you require it to be. Have you considered that the reason you do not remember much of what has occurred in your life is because your focus has been elsewhere rather than in the moment, in the now.

Life for you is very complicated. But there are ways in which it can be simplified by honestly reflecting on what absolutely needs to be focused upon in this moment in time. And then by focusing solely on that one task. Your daily life is filled with a constant flux of energies from those around you asking for your attention. Add to that the internal chaos which exists in your mind as you grapple with doing it all.

Dear One, take a deep breath and take an honest assessment of what really serves you and how you can serve the world in this moment of time. It may be as simple as sitting quietly and allowing your mind to clear and de-clutter. It may be as easy as taking a breath and sending love out into the world. Or it may be as natural as observing your present situation with all of your senses.

Remember the tranquility, Dear One,

That lives deep within your being.

It is your natural state.

Find it again, it is still there.

Buried within the chaos of your mind.

Go to your heart center and allow it to emerge

With each breath that you take.

This is who you truly are

Connected with the All

In peace and harmony.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Waving Torches at Things by Ian Hobson http://www.mymodernmet.com

The time is now

To remember times past

And all those you have known

For eternity.

Dear One, deep inside of you there is a spark of memory that is beginning to awaken. It is the memory of times past and the recognition of knowing once before all who stand before you now. You have known them, and us, for eternity and will continue to know us forever more.

Awaken to the memory of seeing us as we truly are, the embodiment of love, the same as you. Formed in love, everlasting in love. For truly, love is all there is. Anything other than love is a separation from your true nature and from those whom you have known as one with you.

The feeling of separation is encouraged by the physical forms which you embody. They mask the true connection you have with the All, which you have had for all time and will have forever more. Even though you may have experienced different lifetimes in different forms, the connection has always been there and will continue to be there as you move forward.

Can you begin to allow that spark of memory to fire for just an instant and remember your true place in the world, in the universe, in the All That Is? You are one drop in an ocean of love. An individual indeed, but also a part of a vast essence of being created in love. You are an integral part and can feel the connection as you travel with the waves of energy which flow just as your ocean tides.

See us, know us, as you have in the past and will once again in the future. For we are not separate from you, but a part of you. Just as every sentient being is a part of you. All dancing to the rhythm of the great OM, the song of life, of love, of creation.

Dear One, do not shy from this truth revealed to you this day. Instead reflect upon it and open your heart to the possibilities never before considered in this human existence which you are now experiencing. Remember that you are so much more than this physical body, which is just a sheath to serve you as you learn your lessons on this physical plane.

Know us and feel the joy of the connection that you have with all who surround you; human, plant, animal, mineral and also in the ever present unseen world around you. Open your mind to the possibilities of this truth. And consider what can be learned, what can be accomplished as you strengthen your connection with the All.

We have told you before that the energetic vibration is rising here upon this plane of existence and knowing this truth will help serve you in the days to come. Do not feel unworthy. Do not feel forgotten. Do not feel alone. None of these is possible as you are a part of all of existence and have been for all time; past, present and future.

Tone daily and allow the waves of those tones to carry you further into your true reality. You will return, you must return to your physical body as this is your path. But know that you are currently living with a foot in both worlds. And many are having difficulty with the increasing energetic vibration upon this plane. Send them love, see them whole and at peace. For as they heal, so shall you and vice versa. This is possible because you are all connected, in love.

Dear One, accept the truth of these words. And if they seem too much for you, by reading this far, the seed has been planted; to sprout at a future time when this knowledge is needed.

You are loved beyond measure.

You are One With All of Thee.

For all time, in all realms,

With the knowledge and strength

always available to you

As you continue to grow

And know the joy

Of the Oneness of All That Is.

Breathe in love

Breathe out love

Accept it within your heart

And share it with all who cross your path.

It is your path to joy and eternal peace.

Dear One, can you immerse yourself in love at this very moment as you read these words? Pause, and breathe deeply, inhale for 7 counts, hold for 7 counts and exhale for 7 counts. Feel the Mother under the soles of your feet, lovingly supporting you on this physical plane. Feel the ethereal presence of the Oneness around your crown and accept the blessings bestowed upon you in this very moment.

When you are feeling alone, stressed or unloved, do this exercise. Slow down your breathing, place your hand upon your heart and feel the energy of love filling and releasing with each breath that you take. You are perfectly placed in your life at this moment to send love to the ones who need it the most at this time. This includes you also, as you receive the love of the Universe while you act as the conduit of love for others.

You, Dear One, are filled with peace and love. Allow this essence within you to emerge and create the joy that you so desire throughout your day. It is but a breath away. Can you allow yourself the few moments in time required to breathe and connect? To connect your internal essence of love with the Universal love, pulsing through the cosmos like a vapor gently permeating this world and the All of existence.

All that is required of you is to breathe. Focus solely on the breath and feel the warm embrace of love which surrounds you every moment of your day. You do not feel it because your focus is in your head, analyzing, worrying, processing and organizing those ever present thoughts which flow continuously throughout your day.

Placing your hand upon your heart will move your focus away from your thoughts, for your focus is now upon the touch of your hand. It is that simple to begin to limit how your thoughts control your day. As you breathe, offer gratitude for all that you have. Send loving thoughts to those close to you, to those suffering, or just out into the world. It will be gratefully received.

Change begins with love and love is more powerful than you realize. The truth is that you were created in love, created with love and that you can share that love every moment of your day. Begin each day in gratitude for another opportunity to help change the world, your world and the vibration of this physical plane.

You, Dear One, are a master of love, perhaps a bit rusty, but most definitely a master at sending and receiving love. It is time to remove the cobwebs, dust off the fear and begin once again, to replace it all with love.

Be at peace.

Be of joy.

Be of faith.

And be of love.

This is your authentic self, a being of love in a human form.

With so many opportunities to share and connect.

Begin today at this very moment

With your next breath.

Dear One With All of Thee.

How Can You Help?

The world is changing

Can you feel it?

You are all affected

As you are all connected as One.

Dear One, the world as you know it is changing and all are poised to help with these transitions. For the outcome depends on your contribution to the energetic vibrations of this physical plane. How can you contribute? The answer is love and only love.

We have encouraged you through these messages to come from love, be in gratitude and walk in grace. This is not always easy for you as you all are wounded souls who have experienced interactions with results which have caused you pain.

And yet many have reacted differently to the same experiences. Some have recognized the lesson and moved on in forgiveness and love. Others have made those interactions their ‘story’ never to be released but to be re-lived time and time again, keeping the wounds open and raw. They cannot move forward but choose to live in fear and anger.

There is a better way, Dear One. And that is the way of love. That is the means to raising your personal vibration and thus the vibration of this physical world. Can you begin to release and let go of the heaviness that shrouds this world from the brilliant light of love? It begins with you for your contribution is more powerful than you realize.

Understand that you are not alone and have help always close, ready to guide you forward. But you must reach out and ask for help. Despite what many of you think, you are surrounded by love and you are filled with love straining to break through the walls erected by you with your fearful ways.

Dear One, take a deep breath and begin to release the ties that bind you to fear, remorse and anger. Allow your breath to send those feelings off into the atmosphere to be diminished and disempowered, never to return again. Forgiveness is the key, not only towards others, but also towards yourself.

Remember that this physical existence is one of learning and self-discovery and if you never fall, you will never learn the lessons that are here for you. The way forward is through gratitude and love, always. And you are more powerful as an agent of love than as a harbinger of fear. For love is stronger than fear. Love is the fabric of the Universe, gently moving in synchrony with the Universal song, the OM.

Despite what you may think, you have a great effect on the world, no matter who you are or what you do. For you are a part of the All, connected to the All, with the creative power of the All. Your life does not only affect you and your closest friends and family. Your life affects this world and beyond.

You are being told this not to create fear that your mis-steps will cause irreparable damage. You are being told this to empower you and to encourage you to see the power of love. On the same note, you are affected by others more than you realize. Many of you are already aware of this, feeling either the tension or the peaceful atmosphere of a room as you enter it.

If you find yourself in a situation where you are profoundly affected in a negative way, remove yourself, if possible. Then send love to all present, to all involved and send any negative feelings to Mother Earth by grounding through the soles of your feet. Wrap yourself in love at all times and send love with every breath.

Others will notice the vibration you bring with you as you enter a room. They might not consciously be able to recognize the energy, but they will feel it and respond to it. Imagine if all who read this send love into the world. This is how you begin to change the world. Not with anger, but with love.

Be the catalyst for change by sending love. Recognize that others are also catalysts, many without realizing the role they are playing in moving this world forward. Can you cease judgment, worry and fear and instead breathe love, accept love and forgive with a loving heart?

Dear One, you are a catalyst for change

Begin now with your next breath

And send love out into the world.

See it flowing down the filaments of the web.

The web of connection which is ever-present

In this world and beyond.

You are more powerful than you realize

Be of love and change the world

Dear One With All of Thee.

How Do You Remember?

Fuco Ueda Flower of Memory Show http://www.mymodernmet.com

Memories are flavored with emotion

And emotion can affect discernment.

Can you be sure that your memory of an event

Is exactly how it happened?

Dear One, there are so many things to consider when you reflect upon an event in your life. Did the emotional charge of the event affect the attempted communication at the time? What was your contribution; was it purely unemotional or did you add to the emotional charge with your actions?

Have you ever reflected upon a prior event and looked at it from another’s perspective? Can you distance yourself enough from what occurred to view it from a higher perspective? Are you able to see all points of view and the lessons for everyone involved?

Dear One, every person who crosses your path provides you with an opportunity for personal growth. Perhaps they remind you of another with whom you continue to have unresolved issues. In truth, your current reaction may have nothing to do with the one present in the moment, but with someone from your past.

Can you reflect upon past events and honestly look at how your actions affected the others involved? It is so easy to feel wronged or wounded or judgmental about others. And of course, you expect others to act in a way similar to how you would act. But, Dear One, take a step back and consider another’s place of origin, their place in the world.

Can you find enough compassion for another to reflect upon their point of view, their personal history and their wounded self? Can you see the Divine within all who cross your path? Just as you chose this life to learn certain lessons, so did all who are embodied at this time. In fact, many have, out of love for you, agreed to interact with you in a certain way when you crossed paths here upon this physical plane.

Human emotion is such a driving force and fear is one of the strongest emotions you feel as you inhabit these physical forms. For indeed, you are unable to see the web of connection, to remember the agreements made prior to incarnation for lessons to learn.

Step back a moment, breathe, and allow the emotion that rises from your belly to have its moment in time and then release it. This may take multiple attempts, but it is possible. Then focus upon your heart and find the love that resides there at all times. Awaken it, if you feel it has laid dormant within, and fill your entire being with its warm glow. Then send that love outward to all close and far. Blanket this world and beyond with the infinite amount of love that resides within you. For remember, that your heart is connected to the All, to the Source of limitless love.

As you continue to reflect and allow the emotion to dissipate, you will eventually reach a place of forgiveness, for yourself and the others involved. Upon continued reflection and growth, you may begin to understand the lesson involved for you or for another and see how each of you act as a catalyst for change for another. Over time, you will reach a point of gratitude for what occurred as you begin to see how it provided you with an opportunity for growth.

Remember, that change and growth often are the result of suffering. It may begin with love for another. And it can also end with love for each other, after the emotion has dissolved and the lesson is learned.

Dear One, this journey is for you. Others are in your life to help you along your path, just as you are here to help them. You may never realize the true nature of an event but have faith that it will always provide you with an opportunity for growth.

Be still and allow the compassion within to emerge

Compassion for yourself and for others.

For you all are here to help and guide each other forward.

Be gentle with yourself and with others

As you navigate this school of love.

Remember that love surrounds you.

Always.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Timing

timing

Salvador Dalí. The Persistence of Memory. 

Release control of your perception of time

For it only holds you back

Rather than moving your forward.

Embrace synchronicity instead

And your connection to all things.

Dear One, as you continue to believe in the progression of time and try to control what is to occur, when and how, you only limit yourself and the infinite possibilities. Instead can you allow your life to unfold in the manner that best serves you and the lessons you came here to learn.

Indeed, you can have aspirations and dreams and we encourage you to do so. But do not attempt to control what happens and when it happens.  Dream your dream, manifest it by experiencing how it would be with all of your physical senses. How would it taste, smell, sound, look and feel? Spend a moment experiencing it with all of your senses. Then send it off into the ethers with gratitude for what it will bring you when it arrives.

Then continue to live your life, allowing synchronicity and the web of connection to move you towards this dream of yours. It is not about control. It is about trust and faith. Trust that all is well with you and that your life is unfolding exactly as it should. Faith in yourself and in your intuition, which will help guide you forward. Both of these come from your heart, not from your mind.

Imagine the web of connection and how there is a string of energy connecting you to all things in this world and beyond. What you do, think, or say affects all of creation as the energetic impulses created by you move down these strings of connection. In the same way, energetic pulses come towards you from all of your surroundings, not only from those in a human body.

If there is discord in one area, calming corrective energies can and are sent to the affected area. And this is done with Divine timing. For understand, that there are lessons to be learned by all involved, be you a sender or a recipient. The ebb and flow of energies is perfectly timed, if you trust, if you allow and if you cease your attempts to control the outcome.

Rather than fight so hard to have an event occur exactly as you desire it to occur, can you instead, release control and just allow. You have placed your order from the menu. Now allow it to manifest in the most perfect way.

The energies are changing here upon this plane, affected by celestial occurrences as well as by human interactions. In order to better understand this concept, you will need to think more globally and universally, rather than seeing just your immediate surroundings. As you begin to expand your thinking, you will begin to have a better sense of the energetic dance with occurs across all of creation.

There is a flow, a rhythm to this dance that affects you all. There is so much occurring in the unseen world around you and it begins with the connection you have with all things. Can you bless your connection and give gratitude for the abundance of loving energy which surrounds you?

You are not alone on this journey, you are not alone in this life you live. Quite the opposite, you are one with all. If you can begin to accept this concept, you may be better able to understand how Divine timing includes events across all of creation. This is where synchronicity comes into play. This is why trusting your intuition will help you learn the dance of existence across all realms.

All of creation exists within and around you, for you are but a piece of a Divine mosaic moving in rhythm with the universal song of creation. You have an important part to play in this symphony of love. Never doubt that. You have come with a unique gift to offer as you learn the dance of love.

Dear One, there is no need for control, just for trust. Would your life not be much easier if you accepted your integral part in the ebb and flow of creation, with no need to rush or to control.

Release and let go of control

Embrace your connection with all of infinity.

And dance in rhythm with the universal song.

Allow your life to unfold in its most perfect way.

With Divine timing

 And the love of the Universe surrounding you.

Dear One With All of Thee.
