Recognize the Sacred

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.

Trust Yourself

Can you believe in yourself?

Can you trust your intuition?

Can you honor your individuality

Rather than go with the crowd?

Dear One, you are one with the All. But you also have your unique personality and gifts given to you as tools to use here on your personal journey. You have the ability to shine brightly in your own light. You do not need the approval of others to move forward on your path. All you need is trust in yourself.

It takes much courage to be authentic in who you are, especially if that is contrary to those around you. For it is part of human nature to desire to be part of a tribe. Distant memories of your life prior to this incarnation feed the desire to feel at one with those around you.

What you must understand is that the purpose of many, if not all of you, is to teach as you move forward on your own path. Lessons learned by you can be shared with others who try to move through similar situations. For some of you, this requires stepping away from the crowd and being true to yourself and your inner core.

Each of you is different with a different path to follow. And yet, within all of you is that connection to the Source, the Light of Creation. Although many of you may diverge on the paths you follow, the birth of your being, the final destination which you seek is the same. Your individuality in personality and lessons requires you to follow your own path, even though it may be different from those you love.

Honor yourself and who you are. Honor yourself and how far you have come during this incarnation. Honor yourself and the uniqueness of your life. Cease any comparisons you might make between yourself and others. Cease the need to receive approval from others in how you are living your life. For in your own uniqueness you are being a teacher of many who need to see another way of being.

Much courage was needed in order for you to embark upon this physical journey. And more courage is needed to walk your individual path back to the Source. Some of you will teach many in how you approach your life here upon this physical plane. And some will teach a few. But each and every interaction is important in the reciprocity of lessons learned.

As you continue to grow, to trust yourself and your uniqueness, you will be a beacon of light for others who struggle with the same issues. Being one of many like-minded people is much easier than taking that step away from the crowd and setting out on your own path.

Because you have taken a different path does not mean you are loved less by others, though they may not understand how or why you live the life that you have chosen. But they will observe and often make small shifts in their own lives as they see another way of being.

Can you stand tall, move forward believing in yourself and in the process teach others by example? Can you be the calm one in the middle of chaos, the beacon of love in a world of fear? Do not doubt yourself and your intuition. For the more you trust yourself, the more open the channels will become to help move you forward in the gentlest way possible.

Dear One, you are student, you are teacher, you are One with All. Do not doubt yourself and how many you have already touched in your life. The more accepting you become of your own magnificence, the more opportunities will arrive for you to shine your light for others. It may take them time to see the light, to begin to trust their own light, but the possibilities are there for them and you are the catalyst, just as others have been the catalyst for you.

Do not live your life in fear and judgment of who you are or what you have done. Trust that your life is unfolding exactly as it should. Remember than change comes in small shifts in consciousness and these shifts are possible in every interaction. This is the reciprocity of the give and take of life, of lessons, of love here upon this physical plane.

Trust in yourself

Cease the self-judgment

And move forward in love.

Strengthen your sacred connections

By believing in yourself.

You are one with All of Creation.

You are love incarnate.

Allow the love to flow

And see how change is possible.

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

candiceashmentart.blogspot.com

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.
