Choices

Every moment of your day

You make choices.

What guides those choices?

And how do those choices

Affect your life?

Dear One, as you inhabit this physical world you have the free will to make infinite choices every day. The choices that you make clear your path forward as they affect how your life evolves. What guided those decisions that you made? Was it love, fear, faith or trust? And should you judge those choices as good or bad?

Each and every one of you came here with a lesson to learn. And in the process of learning that lesson, you often are an unknowing teacher for others. How can this not be true as you all are connected through the web of consciousness?

The key to this is how observant you and those around you are to what is occurring right before your eyes. There is always an energetic, subconscious portion to every occurrence in your life. And each of you will absorb this no matter what. But the true substance of the lesson is revealed only through observation and reflection. And often this reflection is done in hindsight.

Consider this. How often do you mimic the actions of another without thinking? These might be choices made by a parent or an elder that were often done when you were a child. As that child, you repeated those actions without considering that there were other options. They were familiar and how things were always done. So of course, you continued following the same path.

But often, that way of living is not the best path for you. And it takes much reflection and courage to realize that you must take another course, to live your life another way. Making that choice may be difficult and frightening as you do not know what lies ahead. These are the times when being your authentic self and following your heart will free you to follow your own true path.

There is a great lesson in this for you. And also for those who encourage you to continue following the more familiar ways of being. The unknown lays before you with equal possibilities of causing you pain or joy. And often you are meant to follow this part of your path alone. Do you have the faith, the trust in yourself, in your connection with the All, to take a chance?

Dear One, all paths lead to the same end. It is just that some paths are richer in what they provide for you. Some paths are filled with numerous lessons unattainable if you remained on the familiar course. Yes, challenges may lie ahead. In fact, that is most assuredly a given.

But in facing those challenges and moving through them, you will find a strength, a resolve, a character trait that you did not realize you had. And in making this choice, you often are providing an example for others, encouraging them to do the same.

The possibilities of your life experiences are infinite, Dear One. So, if you are not comfortable where you sit at this moment, then make a choice to change your position. Reflect upon the path that has led you to where you are. Is your life serving you as it is? Are you serving others in your current state of being?

But remember also, that often, a pause is needed before taking another leap forward. This pause may be necessary to give you time for rest and reflection. This pause may be necessary for the matrix to rearrange itself in order to provide you with the best choices. Everything within the web may not yet be in place to lay your best path before you.

Dear One, do not compare your life to that of others. For each of you is unique in the gifts you have and in the lessons that will fill your life. If you are observant and reflective, trust that you will be led forward exactly to where you need to be to take your next step. And if a pause is necessary, accept it with the faith that it is exactly what is required at this time of your life.

Each choice made will provide a lesson. Observe your choices and those of others without judgment. Be kind to yourself and others. For each life lived contributes an important piece of knowledge to the collective consciousness. Each life lived is worthy of respect. And each life lived affects you in some way, regardless of your awareness of this connection.

Live your life to its fullest.

Embrace the challenges

With the richness each contributes

To your life.

Move forward with faith and courage.

And give gratitude for each lesson

Provided to you or to others.

All are connected.

All are loved.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Why Not Say Yes?

Angel Oak Tree by Dustin K. Ryan

Say yes to the many possibilities

In your life.

Say yes to accepting joy

In your life.

Say yes to believing

In yourself.

Dear One, can you say yes to all that life sends your way? Can you see the gift in all that crosses your path? Can you say yes to the truth that you are capable, worthy and ready to take the next step forward?

There are two components to your life, the physical and the spiritual. The spiritual component is that which guides you forward into the next lesson, the next experience. The physical is what reacts to the experience. It can accept it with love or approach it with fear and disdain.

You can experience and focus on the discomfort of the situation. Or you can approach it with acceptance that it is impermanent and also an opportunity to grow. You can bemoan the fact that this experience is not pleasant. Or you can see it as another step forward on your path, a gift to all concerned. The choice is yours.

Reacting is a physical behavior. It is driven by human emotion and often is done without forethought. Responding is the result of pausing and reflecting upon what has just occurred. In responding you are bringing in the spiritual component of your life. What just happened? Why, and how best do I respond to this?

Any discomfort you feel is temporary. And in tangent with that concept, any joy you feel may also be temporary. It all depends on how you see the current situation of your life. If it causes you despair, can you reflect upon it, seek help if needed, and honestly ask yourself what opportunities for change are present. If your current life situation brings you joy, then offer gratitude for the lightness of being which surrounds you.

Remember that this physical life is one of duality. Both highs and lows will be experienced for both light and dark inhabit this plane of existence. This is why it is such a wondrous learning ground for souls who incarnated in order to experience self-discovery. No learning results from a perfect, carefree existence. The lesson is in how you react or respond to the ups and downs of your life.

It may bring you comfort to understand the impermanence of all things on this physical plane. And it may help you to understand that the choice is always yours on what comes next. For there is opportunity for change with every breath that you take.

There are as many paths for you to take as branches on a tree. Each one spreading from the core, the trunk. And each one reaching towards the light. You are like that tree, solid in your core, but able to sway in the currents of life as you reach outward and upward. If the branch you are currently traveling breaks off, then another one resumes the journey forward.

Dear One, there are always opportunities presented to you. And each opportunity provides a different part of the lesson you came here to learn. Embrace your life and know that you have the strength, the help to move forward in love.

If you need to pause and reflect, do so. Your strength and power will once again surge through your veins. Know that there is the possibility of joy underneath every leaf on your journey. And remember that you are firmly attached to the strength of the Mother, the power of the All. Nothing can change that.

You are One with All.

You have the opportunity to change.

Each moment of your life

Provides the opportunity for growth.

And when the new blossoms appear

You will shine with more light

Than ever before.

You are a magnificent being.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Trust in Yourself

nightbird-1.tumblr.com

Why do you not believe in yourself?

In the possibilities

In the gifts given to you

In the perfect timing

In how your life unfolds?

Begin to trust

And see how your life changes.

Dear One, you are a magnificent being with incredible potential to change your world. And yet you focus only on your perceived flaws. Can you begin to accept your true nature with a neutral state of mind, accepting your strengths, your gifts, and begin to change your world.

Each and every one of you has been ‘designed’ to contribute something unique to this physical world. You move through this matrix of life encountering others or situations which are stations provided for you to make your mark, often in the simplest of ways.

What you have yet to realize is how a small gesture on your part can begin a series of events which blossoms into a momentous change as it moves down the matrix. Everything you do has an effect upon your world. Which is why love and compassion are encouraged at all stages of your life.

And often this love and compassion must be directed towards yourself. This notion that exists in your mind that you are flawed, imperfect or unimportant can only be erased by you. And since it often requires the help of others to remove this way of thinking, you are constantly provided with avenues to receive this help in the most unlikely of interactions.

Dear One, can you begin to accept your divine nature? Can you begin to realize that your greatest of perceived flaws may be your most wondrous gift to share with the world? Your strength lies in your uniqueness. You are different from any other upon this plane. And at the same time, you are the same.

As you continue to awaken, you will begin to have a better understanding of the complexities of how all of creation is connected. The human mind can only grasp so much, for it exists only in a physical world, accustomed to the 4th dimension. And yet, your heart knows and understands much more, as it moves across dimensions, outward in a manner which will not yet be revealed to you.

Can you move through your day, your world with trust and faith? Human nature is comfortable with a world that is neat and tidy, lacking the raw edges deemed unnecessary in this train of thought. And yet, it is in these raw edges where the changes are born.

Remember that in this current state of existence, you are unable to see the larger picture. You may try to uncover the reasons for the actions of another because you need an ordered way of life; everything must fit into a certain box or category.

The problem with this approach is that the human mind limits the possibilities of existence. It cannot begin to fathom the infinite possibilities in any situation. Which means that your tidy explanation of a certain event does not see the depth, the expansion, the true impetus of its occurrence.

If you can begin to nourish the belief that your need to understand is not always necessary. If you can begin to live your life with faith and trust in yourself and in the perfection of the unfolding of your day. If you can choose love and compassion for every event or interaction. How would that change your world?

Dear One, give gratitude for all that occurs in your life. Ask for help daily in moving through your world with love and compassion. Allow the raw edges of life to gently guide you forward. For it is only in expanding your reach beyond that ‘comfort zone’ that you will grow and experience your greatest of lessons.

It is time for you to begin to see the divinity, the perfection, in all parts of your life. As you nurture this way of seeing, your priorities of what is truly important to you will change.

Stretch, grow and expand

Your consciousness and your way of life.

You are ready

And you have our support and guidance

Every moment of your day.

You are wondrous

You are awakening

And we celebrate

Every forward step you take

Back towards your own divine nature.

Dear, Dear One With All of Thee.

The Ascension

Rise up

To your greatest potential.

Leave behind all fear

And uncertainty.

For you are divine

And capable of miracles.

Dear One, you have lived long enough under the illusion that you are a physical being, limited in your potential for greatness and change. The connection you have with the All That Is urges you to move forward with grace and love. This is your time for change.

Can you move forward with faith, leaving behind any trepidation or fear that you are not worthy, not ready, not good enough. Dear One, you are a divine being and capable of so much more than you realize. And help surrounds you as you take those first hesitant steps forward into great change and infinite possibilities.

How do you make this shift in how you see yourself and your world? The shift has already occurred for many of you. Conscious awareness may not have occurred yet. But consider how you see your world. Consider how you feel as you move through your day. And notice if prior habits no longer provide the satisfaction they once did.

You are changing, Dear One, at a rate that is perfect for you. All that occurs for you, to you, occurs in a manner in which you can readily accept. In fact, some of these changes are so subtle that it may take awhile for you to even notice a different awareness about your life.

The energies here upon this plane are changing, vibrating at a higher frequency, which is one of the reasons there is so much chaos in your present world. On some level, many feel the change but do not know how to integrate it into their own lives.

This is where you are able to help. If you are reading these words you are already aware of the shift that is occurring. And you can help by sending out loving energy into the world. You may have already noticed how it is easier to come from your heart. Understanding the intricacies of this world may not seem as important as moving through it with love.

Your role is to help others move forward with grace. Your mere presence is neutralizing the fear which many are feeling at this time of change. Do not underestimate the power of your silent presence. For as you continue to open more to your own divinity, your connection with the All That Is will strengthen.

Words may not be needed to help another. Being a sounding board, allowing them a safe venue for expressing their fears, their hopes, the unusual things that are occurring to them, may be all that is required. And if there is guidance for you to share, have faith that your strengthened connection will provide the most perfect words in which to give this guidance.

In order to help others, your own faith and trust in yourself and in the Oneness must become stronger. For you are the conduit for change. Each of you is placed in the most perfect situation to do your best work. And for some, that may be only to listen and be present.

Encourage others to trust the process that is occurring. They will see a change in you and wonder how you can walk with such peace of mind in such chaotic times.

Seek out others who are at the level of growth similar to your own. Combining your energies is much more powerful when done with intention. Allowing yourself the gift of having another to share the changes occurring in your own life will help to keep you on your path.

For now that you have begun this process, there is no turning back. The only movement is forward and you can do it with more grace than you ever imagined. Forgive yourself and others for past indiscretions. And realize that those indiscretions have brought you to where you are today, in this moment of loving embrace.

You are perfect in every way, for you are a divine being. Neither better or worse than anyone else. But connected to all who cross your path and beyond. Oh, Dear One, the heavens are astir with excitement at the progress you have made to reach this point.

Honor yourself

And how far you have come.

Anticipate with faith

How much further you can go

Walking in love and grace.

You, Dear One, are just beginning

A wondrous journey forward

And we are beside you

Every step of the way.

Dear One With All of Thee.

What’s Next for You?

Can you accept

That changes are afoot

And that you are ready

For what is to come?

Can you move forward

With faith in yourself

And in the Universal Being

To move you forward

To exactly where you should be next?

Dear One, faith and acceptance are required for what is to come next for you. Loving embrace, without judgment, is necessary for you to move forward with grace. Fear is to be left behind as you continue your path into the light, towards the Oneness, back towards your natural state.

This experience of life in the physical realm has been a challenge for many of you. Emotions and your analytical mind have guided your forward, rather than listening to the quiet voice within. Can you begin to seek guidance from your higher self, who speaks to you constantly throughout your day?

Hearing your higher self requires faith and quiet times, especially as you are reconnecting after a long separation. Once the trust is established, you will be able to sit for just a moment to know what action would best serve you and the All That Is. Yes, the world around you is chaotic, but a shift is occurring and will continue with or without you.

We speak of this to minimize any disturbance to your gentle soul. We love thee and continue to reach out to you with guidance and help. But our help cannot be given without your permission, as this is your path to walk. Each path is unique while every destination is the same. Home, eventually, to your natural state. But prior to that, we hope that you can reach a state of remembrance of who you truly are and why you are here on this physical plane.

Dear One, despite what you think, you have come so very far in this lifetime. And we encourage you to replace any self-judgment with self-love. For in order to love another, you truly must be able to love yourself first. All are the same. All are One. All are divine beings on a physical journey.

Again, in order to truly grasp this concept, you must see life in terms of energetic vibrations rather than physical density. For the physical world encourages the illusion of separateness. When in reality, you are connected like the neural network within your body, like the root system beneath the soil.

You have established wireless networks through which to communicate. From where do you think this concept came? It has always been available to you throughout your existence. You are only now recreating a network in your physical world which has always been available on an energetic plane.

Many of you are already aware of this connection, especially those who are more sensitive to the energies of others. And as the awakening continues, more of you will understand how this works. To you, we say, walk in love, seek guidance during those quiet times, or from others ahead of you on the path.

Compartmentalizing your life is no longer possible, as all actions affect each part of your life. The different aspects of your life flow into each other, with the common thread being you. As you grow in one area of your life, that knowledge will filter into all other parts of your life. It will no longer be possible for you to be devout and humble on one day of your life and not begin to be the same throughout every day.

Dear One, the masks which you have used to hide your true selves are now falling down. It is time for you to be who you truly are. If more compassion and humility are required, you will be given many opportunities to share those innate aspects of your true nature with others.

Help and guidance will always be provided for you. It is your choice to accept them or not. But no matter what you choose, you continue to be the embodiment of the Divine on a journey of self-exploration.

Choose love

Choose faith

Accept the guidance offered to you

And see through the lens

Of the Divine.

You are on a wondrous journey

Not available to all souls.

No life is too small or insignificant.

All experiences are opportunities for growth.

And all return to the loving embrace

Of the Divine.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Wonder No More

Wonder no more

For you are perfect.

You are exactly where

You need to be

Doing exactly what

You need to be doing.

Dear One, there is perfection around you and within you. Perfection in all things, in all actions, in all of creation. If your mind can grasp this concept that you are indeed already perfect, imagine what doors will open for you.

Remember that you are an individual cell in the body of the Whole, the Oneness, the All. And how can perfection not exist in this Presence? The journey which you travel is to bring more self-knowledge of the possibilities of life throughout eternity.

Dear One, the imperfections you see are created within your mind, and only in your mind. The separation which you feel is only in your mind. Your soul, your true nature, understands the connection you have with all of creation. The time is now to meet your soul, your higher self, in order to move forward with grace.

How does one do this, you ask? It is through the silence within. The mind is so active and willing to control all parts of your life. And yet, you have had glimpses of true reality. It is during those moments of synchronicity, during those miraculous events which occur more often than you realize.

You begin by allowing time for the silence to speak to you. It occurs when you listen to those gut feelings which gently guide you forward. What is most important is to move through this life with love, not fear. Can you begin to allow the fears which bind you to fall away? Yes, it does require faith. Faith in yourself and in your connection to the All.

You have been so accustomed to the voices which say you cannot, you are unable, you are imperfect and not strong enough. Our response is that you can, you are able, perfect and have the strength of the All within you. It requires faith and acceptance that you are a divine being existing within the shell of a physical body.

There have been times when you have been able to differentiate between the two, when the spirit is willing and yet the body cannot do it. Many who are older often say they do not feel the age of their body. That is because your spirit, your soul is forever young. It is only your physical body which ages and breaks down.

Dear One, can you begin to be more aware of the energetic component of your existence rather than just the physical? All of creation has an energetic component. All that you see vibrates at its own frequency. And the frequency of this planet is rising, which affects all who exist here upon this plane.

This requires you to allow your own vibration to rise also. How is that done? Through love, through laughter and joy. You have been in the presence of others who see only the negative aspects of their lives and you have walked away feeling depleted. This is because they vibrate at a lower frequency and you have allowed them to lower yours during those interactions.

What can you do? Send love to them. Understand that all challenges are opportunities for growth and not punishments or abandonment. See them whole and healed. See yourself whole and healed. For by seeing someone any other way helps to keep their vibration in a lower frequency.

The world needs you now to send love, to see the divine in all of creation, to hold all who you see in love and joy. This is not an impossible task even though you see a chaotic world before you. Help to change this world to a lighter and more joyful arena of existence by how you see it, by how you approach your day.

You, Dear One, are already perfect, and capable of miracles. Your acceptance of your connection to the Divine is needed to help change this world. It begins with you. Oh, Dear One, you are so wondrous and powerful and that is how we see each and every one of you.

Walk in love.

Claim your power.

Recognize your own divinity

And hold others in their divinity

Even if they cannot yet see it in themselves.

Change begins with you

And the lens through which you see

yourself and your world.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Your Divine Self

Can you grasp this concept?

Can you accept your own divinity?

Can you pull back the curtain

To reveal the wondrous truth

Behind that human façade?

Dear One, the light which shines within you is more glorious than you could ever imagine. And this is the truth of who you really are. You are filled with a beautiful array of color and vibration pulsing in tandem with the heartbeat of the Universe. Ponder this.

There is no entry fee into the realm of divinity. There are no initiation rites necessary to change your status to a divine being. This is who you have been from the moment of your birth, from the beginning of your existence in the consciousness of the Divine, the All That Is.

Your own divinity is not the destination, but the starting point of this journey. The journey is the remembrance, the rediscovery, of the truth of your connection to the power of the Universe and the All That Is.

The initiation is not in reaching divinity, but in the revelation that you have always been a divine being. Uncovering this truth about yourself will allow you to move mountains and release the chains which have bound you for so long.

The Universe does not exist somewhere ‘out there’ in the cosmos. It exists within you, as you are an integral piece of the continuum. Infinity is not beyond you. It is within you. The physical world which you see is only a learning ground for your personal growth.

It is time for you to understand that ‘you’ are not the physical body. Just as you are not the vehicles in which you travel to and fro. You are the force within that physical body, using it to navigate through this holographic physical world. If you can grasp, truly grasp, this concept, then you will better understand the truths we reveal to you this day.

How would this understanding change the way you move through your day? Knowing that everyone who crosses your path is also a divine being navigating the lessons they chose to learn. Knowing that outcome is not as important as process. What did you learn along the way and how did you choose to move forward, in love or with fear?

If you are a divine being who is a part of the continuum then there is no personal gain. For everything learned during your journey will help the collective consciousness grow. So too, the wealth is not in the acquisition of physical possessions or power, but in the personal growth. Helping another on their journey can only help you as you are both connected in your natural state.

The true power is in the revelation of these truths and in the exchange of love between and among all who cross your path. The shedding of this physical body is not a death, but a graduation to the next venue for learning and personal growth. Love, and only love, will ease the journey throughout this physical existence and during the transition to the next state of being.

Dear One, can you begin to accept your true nature with humility and love? This life is but a dream from which you will one day awaken and reflect upon for its meaning and purpose. There is never punishment or judgment, only encouragement and love.

When you are in despair, reach inward for guidance, reach outward for help and know that love surrounds you and fills your very being. It is only the physical mind and Ego which steer you away from love and your true nature.

Honor yourself for how far you have come.

Love others as you love yourself

For indeed you are One.

And ask for help

During the challenging points

 Of this physical journey.

Accept your own divinity

And see how that changes your world.

Dear, Dear One With All of Thee.

Many blessings to Thee.
