The Awakening Has Begun

You are on course

To expand your consciousness

And to continue to awaken

To your true nature.

Empowered with love

And through love.

One with All of Creation.

Dear One, the process of awakening has been occurring for many years across this plane. The purpose is for all of those courageous enough to embody at this time to become more aware of their true nature. You are already enlightened beings who were willing to give up that memory for a short time so to learn and grow here upon this plane. In doing so, your enlightenment has expanded and allowed the collective consciousness to grow through you and your experiences here upon this physical plane.

As the shift begins to quicken, so too will your opportunities to see your life more clearly. You will begin to look through your heart rather than through your mind. Both are necessary in order to exist here upon this plane, but the heart has been dormant long enough on your journey forward. By opening it, you will experience more freedom in your daily life and more clarity in your interactions throughout your day.

This is a time that has been anticipated for eons as you have slowed your forward progress in past generations. But the time is now for you to better understand who you truly are and the true nature of your existence here with the many lessons provided you in this lifetime. The purpose of these words and the writings of many others is to plant seeds to help you to move past your fears and move into loving relationship with the All That Is.

As the shift continues to accelerate, the sensitivities of many will be tested as the spiritual climate upon this plane continues to change. Many are not ready or prepared to move forward and will wish to slow down the progress. Others may appear to be doing this but in reality, are playing a role that they agreed to play in the expansion of the collective consciousness. Both groups require your loving attention, for judgment will not suffice.

Love supersedes fear, is more powerful than fear, and when expressed with pure intent will help greatly in this forward movement. How another responds to that gift of love you offer does not matter to you. The important task is to create a climate of love across this physical plane as you continue to open your heart.

Love will brush away the mist that has been created by fear so that you may see more clearly. That which you imagined so powerful will shrink in size as you see its true nature. The movement is not to eradicate dark completely upon this physical plane. For this plane exists in duality and so both light and dark will continue to coexist. The difference will be in the neutrality between both as you disempower the fear and darkness that has chained you for so long.

In time, you will be able to observe with detachment any attempts fear makes to ensnare you. Instead of feeling the rise of fear in your belly, you will be able to send out love from your heart. This will shed light on the darkness and disempower it as it attempts to take hold on you as it did in the past.

This process includes the darkness you feel within your own self, as all have the duality existing within them. Accept that shadow self and send it love. Reflect upon how it may have served you in the past and how it might serve you in the future with some alteration and moderation.

You, Dear One, are poised to take flight as you have not yet experienced on this physical plane. Embrace these changes that are coming. Embrace the love that surrounds you. Embrace the love that fills your very being. And understand that no offering of love is too little or too late. For remember that time truly does not exist but in your mind.

Be of love.

Be of love.

Be of love.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Unconditional Love

Is it possible to love another

Unconditionally?

Is it possible to love yourself

Unconditionally,

With compassion for all?

Dear One, this world offers challenges daily to the concept of unconditional love. How can you love another unconditionally when you disagree with their words or actions? How can you have compassion and unconditional love for yourself when you do not live up to your own expectations of perfection? Ah, how to accept this life as a training ground for personal growth?

Many of you train your physical body. You understand that it takes repetition and dedication to build a stronger body. And yet, when it comes to your own personal growth, if you fail on the first attempt, you belittle and judge yourself and others. You expect that personal learning should be instantaneous, not requiring repetition and conscious attempts at change.

Personal growth requires being given the same scenario multiple times until you are able to move forward with compassion and unconditional love; for yourself and others. In fact, you often unconsciously choose to associate with those who can offer you the biggest lesson. People who are similar to those in your past from whom you did not learn this lesson. Reflect upon this.

The universe will provide you with many opportunities for growth, not only as an individual, but also as a collective. This physical world is smaller than you might think, when compared to the entirely of being. This means that it is possible for the same lesson to be offered to all who exist upon this physical plane. Remember that all are connected, all are one.

Consider the common challenges across the globe and how many mirror the personal challenges each of you has in your own life. Your actions, small as you might see them, can have an effect on the entire world. And it begins with how you see yourself, how you treat yourself, how you love yourself.

Can you move forward in your own life having compassion for yourself and not judging yourself so harshly when perceived failures occur? Can you not see them as another opportunity to move forward? Can you step back and ask what you have learned (for indeed, you always learn something) and see the perceived failure as forward movement?

Remember that synchronicity will provide you with opportunities to try again. They might be opportunities to act as a benevolent catalyst for another. Conversely others may act as a catalyst for your own personal growth. By recognizing this, your anger or judgment towards them may abate. It is all connected, Dear One, and gratitude rather than judgment is the response of one who has seen this connection.

Becoming more aware of these connections will help you to grow more towards a life of unconditional love and compassion. All who exist upon this physical plane are here to learn a personal lesson. But all are also here to learn a collective lesson. The pendulum swings back and forth as more awaken to the truth of their existence here upon this plane.

Dear One, take the time to talk to others who see the world differently than you do. Rather than judge them, look closer and you will see the commonality between you both. Offer loving kindness rather than judgment and anger. And trust that all is unfolding as it should. This is a time of many opportunities for growth for you individually and for all collectively.

Remember the connection between all beings not only here upon your physical plane, but across other realms of existence. The lessons you learn individually also affect the collective here and into infinity. Can you begin to move towards unconditional love and compassion even during challenging times? It appears a tall order and yet, it can be so simple.

The solution is love.

And it begins with you.

Show yourself more compassion

And less judgment.

Remember the Divine lives within all.

And that the trials offered you

May be the most generous gift of all.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Community

community

You are a part of a Community of One

One with All That Is.

It is from this community

That you receive your support

And your lessons.

Honor it and all who are a part of it.

Dear One, you do not stand alone here on your personal journey. You never have. For you are a part of an infinite Community of One. This community is composed of all of creation, all sentient beings, who exist here in your physical realm and beyond. And it is from this community that you draw your knowledge, your support and your lessons.

It is necessary to remind you of this connection as your world appears to becoming more polarized, more judgmental and more biased. You have a role to play in this transformation, either in supporting this discourse which is occurring, or in helping to stop the downward spiral which immobilizes so many.

You, Dear One, you, chose to be here upon this physical plane at this momentous time of change and transformation. You chose to be a part of this, to be physically present, so that you could interject your influence upon the outcome of this time of transition.

Every breath, every action you take, will contribute to the forward movement of life upon this physical plane and subsequently of the collective consciousness. Do not hide from this truth. Do not allow yourself to be cowered into inaction. You have much more power than you realize and we are here to help galvanize you into rising into your own personal power.

Individual challenges allow you to grow personally. Upon reflection, many of you will acknowledge that the times which were your most trying, were also the times that encouraged you to draw upon that latent strength within and allow you to face head-on that which you first feared. The result was empowering and often surprising as you often do not recognize the depth of your connection with the power, the knowledge, of the All.

Dear One, open your hearts, open your minds, and come into every situation with curiosity and confidence that you will always be shown the solution to any conflict that presents itself. Observe and be still as you allow your intuition, that connection with the All, to access the situation and offer possible actions to resolve what troubles you most.

Understand that the Community of One has incredible power and unlimited potential, more than any individual can offer. And understand that you are a member, a contributor to this vast well of knowledge and strength that is shared across infinity. Do not doubt your involvement with this community as you are a lifetime member.

You have spent time in realms beyond this physical one you currently inhabit. And communication is different in each and every one of these realms. You have experienced communication in more ways than the physical languages you use today. And it is with these other forms of communication that you can reach others upon this physical plane who are unable to hear you with their physical receptors.

Allow the memories of these existences to slowly emerge as you see the commonality that exists between all races, all genders, all species here upon this physical plane. The Community of One was built on love. It draws its strength from the existence of love. And it communicates best through the language, the energy of love.

Send love, Dear Ones, send love to all who walk upon your sphere of existence. Send love out into the ethers to travel far and wide, encompassing all, reaching into all corners and crevices where fear hides. Send love to raise the vibration of this physical plane to better allow higher planes of existence to support you in your forward progress.

The realms are coalescing and the friction resulting from this will cause strife until an equilibrium is reached. And that equilibrium will be reached quicker if you do your part to help raise the vibrations by inculcating loving energy into every fabric of life here upon this physical plane.

You are indeed an integral part of the Community of One.

Your help is needed to support forward movement of all of creation.

Do not doubt this or yourself.

See yourself as we see you,

Capable, loving and the purveyor of strength and change.

A Divine being here by design to help with this wondrous transition.

Dear One With All of Thee.

The Leap of Faith

leap of faith

Galaxypicture .com

Can you trust yourself enough?

Can you trust the All enough?

Can you trust that you are surrounded by loving hands?

Ready to catch you if you fall?

Dear One, can you believe in yourself and in the All enough to take that leap of faith? For it is the next step on your journey. And truth be told, Dear One, you will not fall. Instead, you will rise, gently but steadily as you allow fear to fall from your shoulders. It has been the weight around your neck, holding you back from your next destination, that of self-empowerment and love.

You have been on this journey many years and many of you are tired and confused. You feel as if your life has been without purpose, when nothing is further from the truth. For you do not see yourself from our vantage point, as we cheer you on with each forward step you take. Oh, Dearest One, do not stop now when you are so close to achieving your next wondrous success on this personal journey you are taking.

Review your life and allow those moments of joy, buried under the mounds of self-criticism, to surface once again. Allow the note of a song, a glimpse of nature, a taste or a touch, to take you back to that forgotten moment of joy you experienced. There are many of them, you know. But they are lost in the chaos of self-deprecation and self-judgment.

Take a moment and remember. Allow your mind to be free and open yourself up to those times which brought you joy. Do this often as you continue your journey of remembrance of who you really are, a being of joy and love. Yes, there are wounds experienced along the way. But how can you reach out to others who are wounded, if you do not understand how it feels to be wounded yourself? Consider them badges of resilience in a world of duality and suffering.

It begins with you, Dear One, and how you view your life. Can you forgive, be grateful for the lesson and move on? Can you bathe those wounds in the nectar of love and see the light begin to shine forth through them? You cannot have compassion for others if you refuse to give it to yourself. For those in your life are but a reflection of you, a wounded soul courageous enough to continue the journey. Now supported by the knowledge learned from those experiences, stronger than ever, resilient and humbled.

You have come this far and are capable of soaring high above your greatest aspirations. Do not limit yourself in what you think is possible. For the possibilities are far grander than you can fathom. Take that leap of faith, without expectation, only with love, and see where it takes you. This physical existence is an adventure in possibilities. And yes, you have the choice of taking the path of love or the path of fear. Which do you choose?

You cannot be certain of the outcome of any step that you take. The only certainty is that it will move your forward on your journey of self-discovery. Do you have the courage to surrender and cease the old patterns of behavior which have not served you? Embrace the opportunities laid before you to help you shed the heavy cloaks of fear. For indeed, the cloaks did not protect you, they only covered the light that shines from within.

Allow the light, that brilliant light within, to shine, through your badges of resilience, through every pore of your body. Allow others to see your wounds, your vulnerabilities, and they will recognize a kindred spirit on a path similar to their own. Be at one with those who cross your path. They are there for a reason, Dear One. Love them without hesitation, as we encourage you to love yourself.

Call upon us and look for our help, our reply, in the synchronous experiences in your life. Remember that we come to you in ways to which you would be most receptive, in ways that are the least threatening to you. And many are our messengers, being the presence in your life that is needed at this very moment. See us in everyone around you. See us in the mirror reflecting back to you. Loving beings filled with light and joy.

Do not seek certainty, for it will never come. Instead, have faith that the choice you make is Divinely inspired to place you exactly where you need to be next; as a messenger, as a recipient of a message, or both. For remember that you play many roles in this life and each one is necessary for the forward movement of the All.

Acknowledge your place in this world

As a member of the community of One.

One with All, One of Love, One of Courage and Strength.

You can be certain of this.

You are never alone and you are surrounded by love.

Always.

The Breath of Love

breathe as love

 www.500px.com

Healing is possible.

It begins with you.

Through your loving breath

Anything is possible.

Begin now

And help to change the world.

Dear One, your breath is love and as you breathe in and out you are able to circulate the love of the Universe; first within your physical body and then out into the world. Yes, it is that simple. Accepting the loving embrace of the All and then sharing it with all around you.

Do you not realize that every aspect of Mother Nature does this for you every moment of her existence? You are surrounded by love with every step that you take. This is why you feel more relaxed and calmer when you walk among the trees, along the brooks, at peace with your surroundings.

You are a part of Mother Nature, though many in this world feel that they have rule over her. You are one with her and she is a manifestation of the loving Universe, as are you. The difference is that she still remembers and exists in perfect harmony with the Oneness. Many of you have yet to accept your true nature, one of love.

The Mother transmutes carbon dioxide into oxygen with every breath that she takes, allowing you to exist upon this plane. She does this without thought, without judgment, only doing what comes naturally for her. You can do the same. You breathe every moment of your day. It is required for the very existence of your human form upon this physical plane.

Why not, then, use that breath as a vehicle for sending love out into this world and beyond? Without judgment, without thought, you may become at one with the Mother as you co-exist with the All That Is. But, you say, my life is more complex. I have emotions with which to contend during my day. I have more to do that just stay in one position and breathe love.

Indeed, you do. Your human form has more complexities than much of Nature, with the thoughts produced by that human mind, with the societal rules set up by humankind. Indeed, you do, if you allow your emotions to call you into actions, which are often regretted upon later reflection. You have been given a greater task, the one of personal growth, which affects the collective consciousness.

But you also have the ability to change, to create your world through which you move. You have been given the gift of creation, Dear One, as a means of self-discovery. And now is the time for you to use that gift for the highest good. The Mother is here to support you, no matter what your choice. She will continue to be a loving presence for you in this physical realm. For you are one of her charges, just as she is one of yours.

Can you begin to use the physical movement of breath as a vehicle for love. For those who struggle with self-judgment, breathe in the love of the Mother and of all of creation. Allow it to fill your entire being with the moist warmth of love, filling every pore with the light of love. Can you offer gratitude on your exhale for all the love which surrounds you, no matter what you think or do or say?

As your personal healing begins, can you then begin to send that love out to others, unseen and perhaps unknown to you, yet requiring that loving breath just as you did. You do not exist as an individual entity in this world or in the all of creation. You are an integral part of the Universal Being. You are connected to the pulse of love which breathes constantly throughout your existence upon this physical plane and beyond.

Connect. Connect with the Mother and with the All. Connect through the breath of love. Quiet that mind of yours and consciously begin to send and receive love with every breath you take. It begins with you, Dear One. You have the power to change the world, beginning with your breath. It is that simple.

Breathe deeply.

Inhale the loving embrace of the All.

Then send it out into the world,

To others who need it as you have.

You are One, Dear One.

You are part of the breath of Creation.

Accept your true nature

And breathe love.

Share it with all.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Vulnerability

Is being vulnerable a strength

Or a weakness?

Does it require surrender

Or resistance?

Dear One, the human existence is an opportunity to live in a world of dualities, not only externally, but also internally. The complexities created by human emotion combined with the illusion of being alone make it difficult to easily describe one’s personality. Perceived strength as described by your external influences may be mis-leading.

The perception of being alone feeds the belief that the more independent one is, the more strength and power one has. Relying on others is often perceived as a weakness and a liability. This feeds the illusion of lack, that more for you means less for me. Therefore, many feel the need to acquire many possessions which then require protection. Ownership and accumulated wealth are looked upon as a beacon of success in many areas of this physical plane of existence.

When you consider all that we have taught in terms of being one with all through the web of connection, the perception of singular success is an oxymoron. For if all are connected, the success of one individual means the success of all. But the success we refer to is more intangible than acquisition of possessions or status.

Dear One, the purpose of this plane of learning is to bring your innate understanding of oneness and connection into this physical existence. By laying aside your mask of independence and invincibility, you begin to lay the foundation of combining both worlds (seen and unseen). Your true nature is one of connection. You are a single cell in a universal organism of love and knowledge. It is impossible for you to exist alone.

This is where your internal duality comes into play. You intuitively know that you are one with all. And yet, you are encouraged and often respected on this physical plane for being independent and self-reliant. Showing any vulnerability is often seen as a weakness, when in fact, it is a strength. Can you begin to understand that asking for help, working within a community, sharing individual gifts for the success of the whole is your true nature?

Perfection and self-reliance are false indicators of personal growth. Understanding your connection with all of creation better serves you in your path forward. Knowing that your unique gifts combined with the unique gifts of another allows you both to reach heights neither could reach alone. Understanding that embracing your perceived imperfections in a physical world is a step forward. For these realizations evoke humility and self-love. And how can you love another in this world if you cannot first love yourself?

Dear One, remove the mask of invincibility you wear for others. Accept your imperfections. For when you can love and accept your own vulnerabilities, you can begin to have compassion for others on their path of self-discovery.

Personal gain is an illusion. The forward path is paved with opportunities to live with a foot in both worlds; the physical existence you now experience and the non-physical existence from where you came. There is much to be gained as you begin to combine experiences from both realms.

You, Dear One, have embarked on a journey of discovery that requires walking with a foot in both worlds simultaneously. This will become more apparent to you as you continue your forward movement. Can you lay aside your self-criticism and listen to that voice connected to the All, rather than that voice which parrots the illusions of the physical world?

Open your wings and fan away the winds of dis-content that harbor in your heart at this time. Make room for the joy which is a part of your true nature. Allow your true nature to emerge; delicate strength embodied in loving embrace by the All of Existence.

You, Dear One, are a magnificent piece of the whole.

Your glow accentuates the flame of existence across realms into infinity.

Release the joy that lives within you with every breath you take.

And light up this world with your own personal spark of love.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Consciousness

Rainbow Lotus by Ng Wai Chor on 500px

You are awakening

To the truth of your existence.

One with all you see

Co-creator with your Maker.

Filled with love.

A Divine being.

Dear One, allow the awakening to open your eyes to your true nature, that of a Divine being, at one with all. Accepting this truth will show you another way to look at your present situation. Accepting this truth will encourage you to walk, to speak, to act in love. For love is all there is and love is the essence from which you were created. Love is the source of your breath, the result of your existence.

Can you, in all aspects of your life, begin to look through the filter of love rather than fear? You are connected to the collective consciousness and it is through this connection that you receive all the knowledge you require to move through your world.

For your world is but a hologram, conceived in love, exuding love and malleable by your loving thoughts. The conscious thoughts which you have help to re-arrange the world which you see. It moves and adjusts according to the expectations of your mind. This has been the gift of this life in the physical. To be able to see the results of your creative consciousness. This is not something that is available on other realms.

It is time for you to realize this truth so that you can work with it to allow the innate love within everything you see and everyone you meet to burst forth, leaving behind all fear and suffering. You have been given the gift of duality here upon this plane. For how can you learn if there are no opposites? How can you choose if there are no choices to allow opportunities for growth?

Every breath that you take can be a breath filled with love or fear. Every choice that you make can be one made in love or fear. Every experience you have can be viewed with gratitude and faith or with suffering and fear. By experiencing all these possibilities, you are allowing others to learn through you.

Dear One, you are a student and a teacher at the same time. You have the opportunity to create in order to learn and to teach. You are in a unique position to experience that which is not possible on other realms. You are an adventurous soul who chose to be here to grow or to help another to grow.

There are no isolated incidents. There are no private thoughts, for their energies go out into the cosmos, and their energies create situations for growth across the Universe. Be not judgmental of who you are or what you have or have not done. For all acts are but one element of a lesson provided for your growth. You are not the same entity you were just moments ago, for you have grown with every step you take. You may not see it, but it is clear across the Universe as your progress is watched with love and gratitude.

Dear One, you are pure energy, temporarily embodied here upon this physical plane in order for all of creation to experience itself. Yes, you are an individual soul, but you are connected to the All, in love. Your time here is temporary before you return to pure consciousness, unembodied, free from the harshness of this physical world.

If you do not like what you see in your world, then change it. Use your powers of creation to gently shift the energies, raising them higher into the vibration of love. There is only so much we can do from our vantage point. It is up to you, Dear One, to begin the process. How? Breathe in love, breathe out love. See the Divine in all you encounter and practice heart-to-heart encounters rather than mind-to-mind encounters.

Forgive yourself as you begin to understand that life here is for learning, and sometimes you stumble.

Love all whom you meet, see them as kindred souls, trying to find their way in this physical world.

Give gratitude for all that you have and see the abundance which surrounds you. Remember that physical possessions are only holograms. It is the intangible, the experiences, which fill you with knowledge and teach you how to be the Divine being that you truly are.

Be at peace, Dear One.

For all is well with you.

Change begins with you and how you see your world.

Choose love and light and joy.

Dear One With All of Thee.
