Be Thyself

No matter where you are

No matter what you have

No matter with whom you are

No matter the time or day

Be Thyself

Always and forever.

Dear One, this journey of self-discovery upon which you have embarked is allowing you to see who you really are. Your strengths, your weaknesses and a glimpse of your own divinity. A wondrous gift for you to learn more about yourself. The key is to accept that which you have learned.

No doubt you are well aware of your weaknesses, since your human emotions always seem to focus on the perceived imperfections of your personality. Self-doubt results from self-judgment as you reflect upon all which you should or should not have done or said.

And yet, you fail to reflect upon the loving nature of your true self. You see imperfection because you continue to see yourself as a lone individual in a sea of humanity. If you could change your perception and understand that you are only one part of the whole, you would see things more clearly.

For, Dear One, that which you feel you lack, perhaps causing envy of another is a mis-perception. For if you were to step back and view the whole rather than just a part of the whole, it would become clearer to you that all combined creates perfection.

Viewing just a thumb and its inability to grasp is similar to how you view yourself. Rather than seeing the entire hand, with all fingers intact, working together. Each finger with its own strength and unique contribution to the actions performed.

So too, with you, in this embodiment on a physical plane. Were you in your true energetic form without the shell of a human body encasing you, this discussion would be unnecessary. For in a non-physical plane, the connectedness of all things is obvious and quite natural.

Understand that you bring a unique energetic component to the process of the awakening of this plane and beyond. Each and every one of you contributes an essential part to the forward movement of the All. No part is too small or insignificant. For all pieces are necessary for the process to be complete.

The next time you self-judge and wish you were more like another consider the differences between you and how you complement each other. How each of your strengths combined create an even greater force to move the collective consciousness forward.

The only thing that requires change is how you see yourself and your perceived imperfections. For remember, that a trait you see as a liability, another may seek as a strength. Can you begin to change your perception to see all before you as an integral piece of divinity, embodied in perfect harmony, in service to the All?

You, Dear One, are placed exactly where you are needed to use the gifts you have. To work side-by-side with others, sharing the power of your combined gifts to change this world and beyond. Be it time spent in prayer, in physical labor, in emotional support or analytical work. An action you might consider inconsequential may be the final piece required to complete the mosaic of change.

Be Thyself, for it is in your uniqueness that you shine. Cease comparisons, for all parts are required to make the Whole, to do the work in service to the All.

Love Thyself exactly as you are for you are a shining light, part of a brilliant Whole more powerful than you imagine.

Accept and be Thyself and offer who you are in service to the All.

For you are Divinity Itself

Embodied though not separate.

Indeed you are

One With All of Thee.

The Knowledge Within

All that you need to know

Resides within your being.

It lives within your heart

Waiting for your awakening

To guide you forward.

Trust yourself and the All.

Dear One, you are ready to take flight. The flight plan lives within your heart. And your guidance will plot the path for you to take. It only requires trust and faith, not only in yourself, but in the All That Is. The connection has always been there, waiting for you to flick the switch to ON. And, oh, as you do so, there is no limit in what you can do.

There is no ‘either/or’ in your life. For there are limitless options and opportunities for you to take. This world of duality has programmed you to see only in black and white, up and down, only this or that. When in fact, there are a plethora of gradations in between. And once you begin to realize that, taking a leap forward will not cause as much fear and trepidation.

For you have been programmed to think you must take giant leaps forward. That there are only two choices, either this way or one other way. Upon reflection, you will begin to see the many possibilities that exist in between those polarized choices. A closer look will show you that small changes can allow you to take monumental leaps forward.

Just as you are a beautifully intricate creation, so too, is the world of possibilities which swirl around you at all times. Those whom you have judged to be wrong, to be mean or selfish may upon closer examination be wounded souls filled with fear and trepidation. Those whom you see as perfect, to be admired and mirrored, also have a darker side which they conceal or keep at bay. Always more complex upon closer examination.

So too, with the world of possibilities for your next move forward. Another beautifully intricate creation. Each step you take is not the only step available to you. Each path you choose has many side trails, other possible directions to take. And many of these are not visible until you take that step and slightly change your perspective.

Each step forward, whether it be in doing the work upon yourself or in taking a path never before considered, will only open up more possibilities to see things clearer. The path forward is not usually a clear and straight one. The richness is often in those side trails never before considered. And with each step forward more knowledge will become available to you to help guide you onward.

You, Dear One, are ready and have always been ready. The difference is only in the size and in the direction of your next step. A trail might be slow and steady to allow you time for reflection. Or it might be strenuous and difficult, to help you see the inner strength that was always there within you. And as you change your perspective, you will begin to see more clearly. The blinders will be removed as you see yourself and others in a different light.

The possibilities are limitless, Dear One, and the only thing holding you back is fear. Ask yourself ‘what would I do if I wasn’t afraid?’ and reflect upon the answer. For this might surprise you and give you guidance for your next move.

Remember as you continue on your path, that your heart is your guide. And compassion and love are the walking sticks that will support you on your journey. The world needs you at this time. You have so much to offer and will have the opportunities to share your wisdom, your experiences to help others forward.

Be discerning and do not allow your ego to direct you. For you have much more to offer and can be of greater service to this world if you are guided by your heart. Ask for guidance to remain balanced while you do so. Any and all help you request will be there for you. Always. And remember that every choice you take is a step forward with knowledge to gain and to share.

Follow your heart

And allow the cloak of fear

To fall away as you take

Your next step forward.

Remember you are loved,

You are love incarnate.

And you are never alone.

Dear One With All of Thee.
