Surrender

Do not fight against the current.

Instead, allow it to take you where you need to go

The destination may surprise you

And be more glorious than you ever imagined.

Dear One, the inclination is to work towards the outcome which you think is necessary, right and appropriate. However, you do not see your life from the higher perspective as we do. You are limited by the human mind, which does not know all the wondrous possibilities available to you. Can you surrender and trust that your path is on a trajectory to greatness; to coming into your power, which continues to lie dormant in so many still, upon this physical plane?

The trials, the frustrations, the disappointments that occur in your life may seem to keep you from moving forward in the fashion you feel is best for you. When in fact, it is these challenges that steer you on your path to greatness. Reflection upon what happens, forgiveness and blessings for all involved provides opportunities for the unlimited love within you to emerge, even in the most trying of times.

Can you be that loving individual in times of stress? It is much easier to be calm and gentle when life appears to be unfolding in a most positive and uneventful way. But what do you learn during these times of easy living? The true lessons come when you are challenged by unanticipated events, which might affect your planned timeline for your day, your week, your lifetime. Are you able to be as calm and forgiving during stressful times? The answer is that yes, you can. But it takes reflection and practice.

Dear One, instead of fighting with such emotion to have your life evolve in a certain fashion, can you instead move through these challenging times with a calmer demeanor? Can you send love out into the world, send blessings to all and continue to treat all with respect and kindness, rather than with anger and frustration? Your world does not need more fear and anger. It yearns for more loving kindness and gentleness.

It begins with you and how you move through your immediate world. For just as the stone thrown into a body of water creates concentric circles, so too, does your internal emotional state send out waves of energy from your core. Can you send out love instead of anger? Can you send out blessings for all; the victims, the perpetrators and the observers? All would be served by receiving loving energy instead of fear and anger. This includes the observers who try to make sense of a world exhibiting such fear at this time.

Everyone here upon this plane was created in love and has unlimited love within them. Everyone. And everyone is affected by their environment, be it one of fear or one of love. Can you be the one to radiate love, trust and faith in humankind? It begins with you, in how you view those personal challenges present in your life. Can you step back and surrender to these challenges, with the faith that all will unfold in the most perfect way?

As you learn to calm those emotions of frustration and anger, to acknowledge them, bless them and then release them in love, you will begin to do this in a broader sense, with others in your world. Dear One, you are capable of so much more than you realize. Start now, at this very moment. Understand that those internal feelings of fear, when transmuted to love, will provide opportunities for change in your life, wondrous change that will affect others.

Begin today. Release those grudges, those judgments, those fears. Replace them instead with forgiveness and loving kindness, towards yourself and others. Create an environment of love, rather than one of fear and anger. You can still promote change in a loving manner. For there is much power in love, more so than in fear. It begins with you, Dear One.

Sit, reflect and bless, yourself and others. Send out waves of loving kindness rather than fear or anger. Understand that the current of life is taking you exactly where you need to go in order to reach your greatest heights. Allow the currents to steer you forward and instead of complaining, be still and observe how you are reacting. Choose to come from your heart and have faith that all is well.

Choose peace. Breathe peace in and out with every breath.

Choose love. Breathe love in and out with every breath.

What happens next may surprise you, Dear One.

Allow the power within to emerge in its gentlest way.

You are One with the Source of All That Is; a reservoir of pure light and love.

Shine, love and change the world.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Be At Peace

There is no need for chaos

There is no need for worry

For thee are in a purposeful life,

Able to shine thy light on all around thee.

Dear One, you have a radiance that emanates from within at all times. It may be clouded by negative emotions. It may be stilted by lack of trust and grace. But your radiance comes from within and has the ability to shine on all around you; envelope them now, with your radiance and your grace.

We remind you once again that you are a Divine Being. You, Dear One, are a Divine Being, one with the Source and All That Is. The web of connection exists in ways that you cannot begin to imagine from your human perspective. And yet, you trust the technology that connects you to others here upon this physical plane; invisible, yet capable of allowing you to communicate with others quite distant from you.

Is it such a great leap, then, to believe that there is yet another connection, invisible to most, which connects you to all of creation? As you continue to grow in this human condition, your ways of being continue to incorporate more of what is a natural state of being across the Universe. Your inspiration comes from other planes of existence, from memories of where you have existed prior to this incarnation.

Dear One, as you begin to better understand this connection, you will begin to treat all of creation with grace and respect; honoring the connections, the symbiotic relationship you have with all.  How you treat others, so you treat yourself. There is no other way, because of this connection.

Remember that the connection you have expands out from this physical plane. You have a connection with others with a higher perspective of life here and elsewhere. These others are sending you guidance every moment of your day. Yes, often it does not permeate that cloud around you due to negative emotions. But in those moments of quiet, those moments of peaceful existence, those moments when your mind rests during sleep, these are the times when guidance can more easily fill your being. Is it not then understandable why often your greatest inspirations come after you have rested your physical form?

If you can accept that there is an unseen world that surrounds you which is loving and supportive, you may begin to have more AHA moments during your day. Can you still that active mind of yours which fills you with only logical and often fearful thoughts? All is well, Dear One. You ride on a cushion of loving embrace, without even having the awareness of its existence. Trust that this is so.

Consider how you are influenced by events happening in places in your world you have never visited and yet, you are still affected. Then expand that thought beyond the physical, expand that thought beyond this immediate time period, including past, present and future. The complexity of existence is far too much to fathom with the human mind. But what we wish to convey is that all are connected and that love surpasses fear at all times.

For every fearful thought or event, there is a multitude of love in the Universe to counteract that fear. And as you continue to grow, you will become yet another who will help counteract that fear with the love you radiate from your inner Source.

You, Dear One, are such a vessel of love with great potential to change your world. It begins with you. It always has. And you always have had loving support from the unseen world. You are the hub of a wheel with love coming from each spoke that connects to you. You are a harp with multiple strings creating beautiful music. If there is one discordant note, the others are there to continue the melody in all of its beauty.

You, Dear One, are loved beyond measure.

You, Dear One, are powerful beyond your imagination.

You, Dear One, are securely connected to all of creation.

Honor these truths. Accept these truths and step forward with grace and love.

For you, Dear One, have nothing to fear.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Clarity

Open your eyes

Open your heart

And allow the truth of existence

To enter into your consciousness.

It begins with trust and love.

Dear One, you are being given the opportunity at this time to begin to see things as they really are. Can you set aside your preconceived notions about life, about others, and observe without bias, observe only with love?

For such a long time, many of you have moved through your lives with blinders on, with glasses colored by your bias, seeing only what you wished to see. The time is now for you to start afresh, as a young babe, and to view your world as if for the first time. For this world, the entire universe is not static, but forever moving, stretching and re-adjusting. It responds to you and how you see your world. Can you now see things differently and begin to make the changes necessary for all to live in grace and love?

The human mind, the human condition, supports a stagnant way of viewing life, as if it never changes. But consider how much you personally have changed and grown over your lifetime. Others do also, which requires you to look anew every day at those in your life, in your world, who affect the progress of this physical plane.

We have told you before how you create your own world, your own life, because of the power you have within, as co-creator with the Source of All That Is. Consider this as you look upon your world every day. Do you see forward movement or retreat and regression? Can you even make a judgment about this as your view is extremely limited, with the human perspective? You are unable and never were meant to see the entire picture, from the vantage point that we have, as we view the broader mosaic of life upon your plane.

Dear One, have you not in the past found yourself backed into a corner by your own actions, unable to gracefully move forward due to Ego? Can you not see that others often do the same and require your grace and forgiveness to remove themselves from their trapped situation? How much an act of kindness would allow these situations to resolve with respect and pride intact!

You, you, are the saviors of others in moments like these. You have the power to change the tone of the interaction by how you respond. Can you remember that this lifetime for you is a learning experience and everyone present in this world has some important lessons to learn while they are embodied in their physical forms?

Can you begin to act with love and grace at all times during your day? We understand that this is asking much from you as you navigate the challenges in your life. But can you change your perspective from seeing them as challenges to, instead, seeing them as opportunities? Rather than choosing fear as your immediate response, choose love and grace, faith and trust, joy and gratitude.

You may respond and say ’I cannot do this’. Perhaps the more accurate response is ’I will not do this’. Reflect upon this, Dear One. Ask for help in freeing yourself from the tendrils of fear as you move through your day. You still do not believe you are worthy of the power given to you. Believe us when we tell you that, indeed, you ARE worthy and it begins with changing your perspective of your personal journey.

Dear One, you are never alone. You are our charges and we are with you at all times. It is impossible for any other possibility because of the web of connection. Being in this physical world is difficult, we understand, for these physical forms suggest separateness, when the exact opposite is true.

Trust yourself and begin to change how you see your world. Act with grace and allow others the opportunity to move forward with grace. This might involve compromise, forgiveness or support for others in releasing themselves from a cornered position. You have been there also, Dear One. Instead of judging, offer a supportive hand and see how life changes.

You all are loved beyond measure, for your hearts are joined to ours. You are worthy of this love and are more powerful than you realize. Change begins with you, in how you choose to see and navigate through this physical world.

Choose love.

Choose grace.

Choose faith and trust in yourself and in the All That Is.

For you are part of an expansive consciousness filled with love.

Dear One With All of Thee.

How Do You See the World?

Can you open up your heart

And see others as extensions of yourself,

All on a similar journey

Searching for love, for purpose, for inner peace?

Are you not One with All?

Dear One, do not forget that you are connected to all of existence and that all of existence came from the same loving Source. Awakening to the truth of who you really are occurs at different times for everyone. Rather than see others as your adversaries, can you see them as fellow travelers on a path back to wholeness; back into the arms of the Source?

How can you judge others when you do not truly know the purpose of their lives, the lessons they came here to learn, and the struggles they have encountered along the way? Instead, can you send them love from your heart and teach them how to love by example? Can you model the behavior you wish to see in others?

You still do not realize the power of love, the power of blessing the world and focusing the light upon the darkest corners of your world. We ache for you when we see how you struggle, and yet cannot help you unless you ask us, for you have the gift of free will. Like loving parents watching their babes learn how to navigate their new worlds, so do we lovingly watch over you every moment of your day.

Dear One, each of you has gifts to share with others. Realizing what those gifts are is the first step. Sharing those gifts with others to help them is the next step. And understanding that you are perfectly placed, to share with those who need your gifts the most. Your actions, no matter how insignificant you feel they are, become powerful tools in affecting the lives of others.

Open up your hearts to all and understand that if you seek guidance or help, it is only a breath away. But also realize that you, yes, you, are the vehicle of help or guidance for another who needs exactly the help that you can offer. Remember that you, in your human mind, cannot fathom the workings of the Universe. This is by design, for the lessons would not be as powerful if you could.

You, Dear One, are the vehicle for change here upon this physical plane. But remember that your physical senses cannot show you all that is occurring around you. For there is much more to existence than what these physical senses can ‘see’. The time is now for you to begin to trust your intuition, to open your mind to other forms of communication between each other and between the worlds.

It begins with you and the way you move through your day. It begins with what kind of energy you extend out to others. Do you act towards another or do your re-act? Can you begin to calm down those human emotions and come from your heart in all that you do? This does not mean that you become involved in another’s drama. Indeed, it is best if you do not, and instead, send them loving support from the sidelines.

Your best practice is to keep your own vibrations high and not allow those of others to bring yours down. For just as this can happen, so can your higher, positive vibrations affect others and hold them up. It works both ways.

Choose peace, Dear One. Go within and feel the quiet that exists there as you connect with your Source. Leave the external chaos if only for a few moments each day. This is how you replenish and keep moving forward, being the loving entity that you truly are.

You, Dear One, are a gift to this world. Do not doubt that. Share this gift and see the gift of others as well. For each of you has a role to play in the forward movement of this world. Trust your intuition and those synchronicities in your life. Cease the worry, and trust, in yourself and in your connections with the unseen world.

As you continue to grow, you will begin to understand more how powerful you are and how you have that oasis of peace within you at all times. A place of respite and regeneration.

Love as you have never loved before.

It is your true nature.

Dear One with All of Thee.

 

Choose Peace

You have a choice in how you live each day.

You have a choice in the thoughts you choose to harbor,

The feelings you choose to hold onto.

The choice is always yours

Because you have free will.

Choose peace.

Dear One, life in the physical world is an adventure, but also a challenge. With this existence you have many choices to make, much freedom in how you move through your day. And yet, this human condition, with its illusion of separateness and plethora of emotions, can present a challenge to remembering your divine nature.

Can you open your eyes to the opportunities, the beauty, the joy and the love which surrounds you every moment of the day? There is beauty everywhere. Even in the most dire of situations, the Mother might send you a songbird or a ray of sunshine to pierce the darkness you feel enveloping you.

You are master over your mind, not servant to it. You have the power to cease those thoughts that invite you into despair and frustration. You have the power to raise your vibrations to those of peace and gratitude. Much of how you live your life falls into a pattern, a habit, which can be broken.

Choose peace. When you feel those emotions of lower vibration begin to well up within you, choose peace instead. You are not alone in this. There are many of you who experience the same challenges in changing their perceptions of their world; from a world filled with despair to one of joy. But it is possible to do this with support, from the unseen world and from others who understand that which you are experiencing.

We say to you again, you have the power to change your world. It begins with changing your perspective, with loving yourself and believing in yourself and your capacity for love and forgiveness. You are a Divine Being, existing in a physical world filled with emotional responses. And the emotions you feel are a guide to where you are on your spiritual path.

Can you love unconditionally, yourself and others? Can you forgive yourself and others, rather than holding onto old hurts? Can you see the divine within all of creation, from the smallest of creatures to, yes, your greatest adversaries? Can you focus on the beauty in your life rather than the perceived darkness?

This is not to say that you turn a blind eye to suffering, for suffering is a part of this journey of personal growth. But suffering can be diminished by how you see your world. Can you see the opportunities, the possibilities, and trust the unfolding of your life with faith that all is as it should be?

Challenges occur every day. The question is how you respond to these challenges. Do you worry and fret, or do you choose peace, with the understanding that all will be well? Do you continue to worry about that which has not occurred? The truth is that outcomes can be far grander than you can even imagine.

Choose peace, when those worrisome thoughts try to lodge within your mind. Remember that you are master over your mind. Choose peace, and silence the repetitive thoughts which bring your vibrations down. Tell your mind that instead, you choose peace. And seek help if you need support. You are not alone.

Choose wisely those with whom you spend your time. For as the vibrational changes continue to occur, you may become more sensitive to lower energies put out by others. Consider quiet time to replenish your spirits. Cease exposure to drama when possible. Observe, but do not engage in drama created by others. Send love and find compassion for others, and for yourself, as you move forward on this path.

Choose peace.

Love, as you have never loved before, as your capacity for this is infinite.

Focus on the beauty, the joy, that is present in your life.

Cease the worry about that which has not occurred

And trust that all is unfolding as it should.

The possibilities for growth exist in every challenge that comes your way.

And as you continue to grow, you will be able to find gratitude for those opportunities.

But for now, know that you have someone by your side at all times.

At ALL times.

Choose peace, Dear One.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Serenity Amidst Change

Chaos abounds around you.

The currents of change are stirring the pot,

Affecting your sensitive soul.

Send peace into your world

With every breath you take.

Dear One, change fosters disturbance in the established ways of being. When change occurs, you are forced to readjust, to reassess and to go with the flow of movement. Forward, always forward. Despite the grim outlook, these are exciting times of Universal growth and you are here, in the physical realm, to help counter-balance the negative forces astir.

You feel helpless, without any power or direction, as if life is happening to you. And yet, you have more power than you realize. But in order to access and use that power, it is necessary to first go within to gather your strength through your Divine connections.

All that occurs in your life is painted by your individual perceptions. These perceptions can lead you to see your world in a positive or a negative way. The choice is yours. You also have the choice to add to the chaos or to help stabilize it through your own actions.

What do we mean by this? You can allow the feelings of despair to bring your spirits down, allowing the feelings of helplessness to overwhelm and paralyze you. Or, you can ask for help in using your divine gifts to help stabilize a world perceived to be out of control. You, Dear One, have the power to support change in a positive, loving and compassionate manner.

You are not alone in this process. Many unseen forces from far away realms in the Universe are here to assist in the changes now occurring on this physical plane. Understand that all are connected, which means that what happens here on this plane affects the All. For this reason, you are supported in ways you cannot understand at this time. But rest assured that you are NOT alone, nor are you left abandoned on your forward path.

Living in a physical world creates this illusion of separateness and individual gain. And yet, in your true state, as an energetic being, you are connected to all of creation. You are able to feel the vibrations of change, unseen by your human eyes, and you are physically affected by them.

In addition, you can affect others by the vibrations that you send out from your Divine essence seated within your heart center. This means that you can either add to the distress by outbursts of anger and frustration, or you can help stabilize the situation with a calm countenance emanating from your core. The choice is yours.

For you to contribute positive vibrations to this world, it is important for you to spend time connecting to your inner divinity daily, with quiet time in meditation or contemplation. This will help you to replenish your own energies, as you pull from the Infinite source of love. Surround yourself with positive energies and if you feel dragged down by chaos, take steps to free yourself from that negativity.

Shower and see the negative forces flowing down the drain. Surround yourself with Nature and honor her, bless her and thank her for the gentle breeze that clears your energetic field. Cleanse your internal organs with clear water, blessing it before drinking it. Rest and contemplate all for which you are grateful, all to whom you send love, and all for whom you feel compassion.

Dear One, this is a time to become an active participant. Believe in yourself and in the internal strength that you have that can be used for the common, the highest good. Trust that the Universe is unfolding exactly as it should. And accept the loving support from the unseen world which is working diligently by your side; supporting you, whispering encouraging words into your ear and holding you in loving embrace.

These are wondrous times, these times of change. Participate in a loving, positive way. Treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself, no matter how they approach you. For all are children of the Universe and all have a role to play in this time of change, even though you cannot see it from your point of view.

Trust, believe in yourself, in Us and in love.

Your capacity to love has no limits, for you are part of the Divine.

And the Divine is only love.

You are a vehicle for change.

Do your part with love and peace within your being.

All is well. You have all the tools needed.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Finding Your Internal Peace

It is there, that place of peace.

It resides within your heart, calm and centered,

While the world around you seems chaotic and restless.

Visit there often, your heart,

Rest in the comfort of knowing

That is the place always filled with those who love you.

For you are never alone.

Dear One, during those times of distress, when you feel the world surrounding you is offering only fearful experiences, find the solace you seek within your heart. It is there where you can rest, knowing you are surrounded by loved ones; those who care more deeply for you than you can ever imagine.

For you are loved dearly, just as you are capable of loving others with the same intensity, the same focus, unconditionally.

You are never alone. That is impossible, though this physical existence fosters that illusion. But if you could shed that physical exterior and view your existence from our perspective, that of only energy and light, you would understand.

It is difficult, we acknowledge, for one who lives and remembers only a physical existence, to fathom an existence without a physical body. And yet, you leave your body quite often; those times when you daydream and find yourself elsewhere from where your physical body sits. Your consciousness also streams at night, as your physical body rests. Have you not had dreams that were so realistic, you have remembered many details and how they have affected you?

Dear One, when you sit quietly in meditation or contemplation, the physical world around you fades away, as your consciousness follows its own path forward.  Some of you may have even seen colors or images during these quiet times. For those who feel they cannot meditate due to the chatter of their minds, we give you encouragement. For even during the times when you attempt to sit quietly, with no perceived success, you have made a connection.

It is during these times that we are better able to reach you, even though your conscious mind may not be aware of the connection. It is during these times that you are holding sacred space, inviting connection, and we are there with you, en masse, even though you may not yet be aware. It is during these times that we honor you, for setting aside the time to be quiet.

Dear One, you were birthed into this physical world for a purpose, unique and individual for each of you. You were gently cradled before your transition into this physical world, just as you will be gently cradled as you return to us. You are a child of the Universe, constantly watched over, gently guided and urged to follow your path of remembrance. This is the path which allows you to come into your own power once again. This is the path which reveals to you the purpose of your physical life and the path to strengthening your connection to the All and to the Source.

When you feel alone, put your hand upon your heart and feel the warmth, the love, which is housed there, filled to capacity with loving kindness, compassion, and support. You have your own personal oasis in a sea of external chaos. Go there often to replenish and rejuvenate. Go there to open the connection to the All. Go there when you are seeking support and you will receive it.

Dear One, we are listening.

We are extending our tender embrace to comfort you.

Call upon us in your times of need.

You are never alone.

Dear One with All of Thee.
