Walk with Grace

Feel the connection

You have with the All.

Open yourself to the love

Which pours into you.

And share that love

Throughout your day

With all who cross your path.

No matter who they are

Or what they have done.

Dear One, you are the one who can change this world as it continues to grow and expand. You are the one who can guide it forward towards a world of love instead of fear. You are the one who has the power to gently swing the pendulum back towards the light. You are the one.

Do not question your power or your ability to do this. For you are a most powerful being placed here upon this plane to help move it forward into love and higher vibration. Yes, you will have days where you feel it is not possible, that you are too tired to move forward and cannot make a difference.

To all of this we say, pause, take time to replenish yourself and ask for help. For we are waiting patiently, yearning to help, but cannot without your permission. You have and always have had free will during your time here upon this plane. You have our support, our blessing and our unconditional love.

Open your hearts and allow the power of love to fill you and re-energize you when you feel you are fading. For your human form has its limitations and must have time to rest and replenish. The physical depletion caused by too much activity can and will affect your mental and emotion states. Your spirit remains powerful and strong, but it does exist within these fragile physical bodies.

The goal is not perfection in this physical world, but awakening and forward movement. Your definition of perfection differs from that which we would call perfection. For your physical senses distort and often confuse the true nature of being. For us, all is perfection, even this world of duality in which you live.

Grace comes when you allow the natural flow to begin and move often in directions you do not see as correct. But once again, we remind you that your vision is limited from your viewpoint. If you could raise your vibration and seek the higher purpose for all that occurs, you may begin to have more clarity in what is occurring in your life, in your world.

You have not been forgotten. You have not been abandoned. Far from it, you are held in highest esteem and surrounded each day with the love of the All of Creation. You are gently being guided forward to situations where you can be the catalyst for change, where you can do your finest work.

Each and every one of you has a unique gift which can help move this plane and consequently, the Universe, forward. The challenge for you has always been trusting that you are capable of doing what is placed before you. Your internal fears and struggles continue to whisper in your ear that you are not strong enough, not good enough or do not have the knowledge to complete the task at hand.

We are here to tell you that you ARE and that you are perfectly positioned to help others using the skills you have attained, with more internal grace than you realized you have. You, Dear One, can and do make a difference every moment of your day.

And so we say to you, trust in yourself and your connection to the Oneness. Be more present in your daily life so that you can be more aware of the gentle guidance that is occurring for you every day. We do this not in your spoken language, but with synchronous opportunities, with those sudden impulses to change your plans, or by preventing actions until everything is in place to provide forward movement.

You have all experienced these situations, yet not attributed them to the web of connection, the guidance from those who love and encourage you in your daily life. Do not diminish the power of the connections of all living things. You are but one cell in a body of the Divine and affected by the ebb and flow of the breath of the All.

Grace is an innate component of your essence. In other realms it is a natural state of being. It still exists within you now, but is more difficult to express due to the challenges of this physical world. Allow it to emerge in all of its glory and walk with a lighter step.

All of this is possible

For you are a divine being

Temporarily housed in a physical state.

You can change the world.

Believe in yourself

And your own divinity.

Believe in yourself as we believe in you.

Dear, dear One With All of Thee.

You are the One

You are the one to change the world.

You are the one to inspire and teach

To embrace and comfort,

To lead by your example.

Follow our guidance and believe in yourself

As we believe in you.

You are the One.

Dear One, you will have days of doubt and distress, wondering why and how and what if. You will have moments when you just want to come home to the loving embrace of the All and leave behind the challenges of this physical world.

To you we say, stay. Stay another day and allow us to fill you once again with your personal strength and resolve to live a life worth living, a life which is a beacon for others.

You are embodied in a human form, with human emotions and limitations. This is challenging for you and that is well understood. But when you are in these moments of despair recognize that this is not who you really are. This is just a side trip, an excursion into the unknown taken on by only the courageous among us.

There are many realms in which to exist, and most do not have the limitations of physicality as this plane. In these other realms, you are more aware of the connectedness you have with the All. This temporary existence upon which you have chosen to embark can and will require much trust and faith in who you are and from where you have come.

You, Dear One, are watched every moment with immense gratitude and support. You are provided with the help which you seek, though often you do not see it as such. Can you begin to trust yourself more, trust the strength in your connection to the All That Is. Can you have faith in your relationship with the unseen world, which gently guides you forward every day.

The physical form in which you currently exist has its limitations and though spirit is willing, the body is unable to comply with your expectations. Have compassion for this vehicle of transport which you have chosen for this journey. Tend it, care for it, and allow it to rest when it is tired. And as you rest look around you and see the beauty that fills your world.

Remove yourself from that mind which pulses endlessly with thoughts and desires, often judgmental or unattainable. There is no score card which marks your progress or perceived defeats. For every experience which you have is gratefully accepted for the knowledge it provides as the All That Is exists and expands through you.

Your life has purpose beyond anything which you can imagine while embodied in this physical form. You are held in high esteem for taking this journey into the unknown. And you ARE making a difference with every breath that you take. Just by reading these words, you are raising your own vibration which then reaches out beyond your immediate environment, as energy ebbs and flows.

You, Dear One, are capable of more than you can ever imagine. Small gestures or changes made by you can swell exponentially until those affected are countless. Remember the energetic components of all of life here and beyond. You affect and are affected by those changes.

So when you are feeling despair or sadness, call out for that loving energy which surrounds you at all times. Close your eyes and feel the warm embrace of love that will lift you from your lower vibration. You have not failed if you sometimes feel these lower vibrations. You are an energetic being within a physical and energetic form. You will feel these fluctuations in the energy field.

Dear One, you are more powerful, more connected and loved more deeply than you can ever imagine. You are part of the entirety of the Divine One. And this existence here upon this plane is one of service, not only to the All, but to yourself, as you follow your individual path of self-discovery.

You are the One

You are the vehicle for change.

There are no detours or wrong paths

For every path leads you forward

Toward wholeness and personal growth.

You are the One

Courageous enough to embark on this physical journey.

And for that we bow to you

Dear One With All of Thee.

Curiosity

How do you walk through your world?

Do you question what you see

With curiosity?

Or are you so frozen in your mind

That you can not see through the fog

Created by that repetitive way of thinking?

Dear One, are you so imprisoned by your mind that you cannot see past a certain way of viewing the world? Does fear cloud your vision enough that you do not pose the questions ‘Why’ or ‘Why not’? Are you stuck in repetitive thinking, unable to take a clear view of what is happening around you?

How do you move through your day? Do you assume that those you meet are a certain way because of past experiences? Or do you allow yourself to walk with an open mind, listening to your inner voice, your gut, your intuition? Do you take everything at face value or do you delve deeper with the acknowledgment that things may not be exactly as they initially appear to you?

The world and all of its creatures are constantly changing, in flux with the expansion of the Universe. All are in motion, regardless of the illusion of appearing static. If you could see life at the molecular or atomic level, you would be more aware of the constant vibration of all things. And movement allows for change, within and around you.

Dear One, forward movement requires motion. For this reason, it is helpful to you if you allow yourself to consciously take steps every day in a new direction. This could mean altering your daily routine with just a minor change, but enough that requires you to be mindful of what you are doing, or where you are going.

By doing this you are allowing yourself to move away from fear. For if a new direction requires your presence, you are forced to step outside of your mind where fear constantly holds you back. And as you make small changes in your daily routine, you will become more curious about what you see, who you meet or how you feel?

Do not assume that you are the same person today that you were yesterday, for you are not. Each day with its experiences changes you. You are stronger and one step further upon your path this day than the last. This is the same for all of creation and since all are connected, individual growth is felt by all.

As you begin to make small changes, allowing your mind to be more open, synchronicity will have more opportunity to guide you forward. It occurs more often than you realize. But as you allow curiosity to lead you forward, you will be in a more receptive state to be aware of the synchronicities in your life.

Being more aware of your place in the world, if only in a small part of it, will begin to shift you from that prison of your mind. Your senses will become more finely tuned as you observe the world and interactions occurring around you.

Becoming more engaged with your environment will open up more opportunities for you as you more consciously see the ebb and flow of life around you. It begins with mindfulness, curiosity and trust that growth comes with motion, if only the smallest step forward.

Do not think you know all that you need to know. Do not allow yourself to be imprisoned by the repetitive thoughts from your mind. Instead, observe the world, allow curiosity to move you forward and see how much you can learn by taking just a small step forward every day.

Change is occurring every moment of your existence. And this includes change within you, in how you see, or feel or respond to the world around you. Trust that you will be guided forward by a gentle hand. Understand that others are filled with fear as well and that it takes courage to move forward.

Make no assumptions

For what was true in the past

May no longer be true in the present.

Move forward with curiosity without judgment.

For what you see may not be all of what is.

Allow life to unfold and guide you forward.

Gently and with loving embrace.

Curiosity is what brought you here

And what will move you forward.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Personal Musings

My computer died a few days ago. And so, I am in the library posting this weekly blog. I decided that instead of the usual message, I would get more personal and tell you a bit about my summer.

As many of you know, I am a blueberry farmer and we just finished an eight and a half week season, picking over 3800 pounds of berries. It was a bumper crop this year, despite an artic freeze this spring, when the temps went down to 10 degrees, very rare for North Carolina. Some blueberry farms a little south of me didn’t even open this year because of it. I suspect that their blossoms were further opened than mine, making them more vulnerable to the cold.

Why am I telling you these two things? Because as I reflect upon the past few months, I realize that any worry I may have had was needless. While other farmers scurried to protect their blossoms during that cold snap, I just called upon the fairies to protect my crop. I envisioned a warm blanket over them. I knew it was possible that I wouldn’t have any berries this summer. But not worrying about the outcome and trusting that all would be well, was the best thing I could do. (And honestly, I still do not excel at being free from worry, but I’m working hard on that!!)

The day my computer died, my morning meditation gave me the message that ‘all is well, not to worry’. I reflect upon that and wonder if I was being prepared for the upcoming challenge with the computer. They know me so well, my Tovarysh! But on the bright side, I got through my blueberry season with a functioning computer. And we were able to retrieve all the data from the failing hard drive. I may be without  connection for a few days, but maybe that is what I need as my body begins to recover from the season.

Do I still have a lot of farm work? You bet! But the pace will be slower as I transition from farmer to writer/teacher in the off-season. I can continue to watch the twin fawns come and go in the blueberry patch. There is a young buck too, a beautiful boy, who is part of the herd of deer who feast daily in that blueberry patch. Rabbits, too, who freeze at the sight of my dog. Lucky for them, she is getting older and no longer has the speed to catch them, though she gives it her best try.

The tobacco farmers near me are gearing up to harvest, as I am winding down. I always love this time, when I know that hard work is behind me and there is a massage waiting for me in the near future.

If there is one thing that farming has taught me, it is that I am not in control, and going with the flow is the path of least resistance. Mother Nature has taught me so much about the cycles of life. I feel so much a part of this natural world. I feel loved and protected and connected to something much larger than myself.

Thank you so much for following this blog. Hopefully, next week we will be back on-line. If not, I’ll use my imagination to come up with another way. Till then, allow yourself to be free.

Give yourself a respite from worry and fear. Believe me, I’m there with you, being given opportunities for growth daily.

Be well, My Dear Readers. Sending you all loving thoughts, my fellow travelers, on this physical journey.

All is Well

Can you trust these words?

Despite all that you see around you

Can you trust that all is well

And that your life is unfolding exactly as it should?

Dear One, it can be difficult for you to view your life and the world around you and still accept the words that we say to you. All is well. For you see strife, inequality, suffering, greed and many other challenging components of the human condition occurring around you. Can you trust enough to believe that all is well?

It depends on the perspective that you take as you walk through your world. You can view the happenings as terrible injustices, or you can see opportunities for growth. For each occurrence of a perceived negative condition is an opportunity for someone to step up and make a difference; to change their way of walking through this world.

Each occurrence can be an impetus for someone to make a conscious choice to contribute loving kindness to this world; to counteract the greed and suffering. If the world in which you lived was without these challenges, what would the purpose be for existing here upon this physical plane?

You, Dear One, are a participant in a world that is inter-connected with all of creation. And yet, by perceiving this world only through your human senses, you are failing to see all that is occurring on an energetic level. We have told you before that you are energetic beings, temporarily embodying these physical forms for the purpose of your own personal growth.

The choice is yours, whether or not you will participate and share the gifts you have been given, in order to raise the vibration of this physical plane; or to sit back, criticize and judge what is occurring without getting involved. This is your choice.

You have been given the perfect form, placed in the perfect location, and given the most perfect gift to use in your life to help others. You have the power to change your world, if only by spending moments each day sending loving energy out to those around you.

Can you walk through this world without judgment of how others live their lives? Can you instead treat all of creation with respect and gratitude for all that they offer you? Yes, even if they are challenges that force you to action you did not want to take. You are ever powerful. You are filled with love. Begin by being kind to yourself and trusting that you have everything that you need to move forward in the most perfect way.

Do not become dismayed by your perception of lack in your personal life. It is so easy to focus on that which you feel you do not have, rather than realizing all that has been provided for you. It might be as simple as a spot of shade on a hot and sunny day or a place to rest your body after a hard day’s work.

Dear One, open your eyes and see what you have in your life, which serves you daily. Know that whatever comes your way, you will survive; perhaps not with the outcome you intended, but certainly with the personal growth needed to move you forward.

Trust that your unseen companions are but a breath away; ask for help when you need it and they will provide it. Reflect on all the time spent worrying about that which never occurred. Know that your human mind cannot fathom all the possible outcomes to a situation, that many of the outcomes are better than you could ever have imagined.

Be patient with yourself and with others. Remember that you all are on this journey together; each of you has specific lessons you chose to learn this lifetime. Understand that synchronicities are but an avenue to get you to where you need to be next. Perfectly situated for a perfect outcome.

Dear One, no matter what occurs to you in this lifetime, please know that you are loved and are never abandoned. We have told you before that it is impossible for you to be alone, even though your physical senses may not be able to perceive this truth.

You are a part of an eternal web of connection, always linked to the Source and never alone.

Dear One, trust that all is well, even though it may not appear that way at this very moment.

Trust that the cogs in the wheel of life are constantly moving you forward.

Choose to move forward with grace, with love and with kindness.

For like attracts like and you will be the recipient of that which you share with others.

 

You are a Dear One, precious to us, held close to our hearts.

You are one with the Source, at all times, at ALL times.

And truly, All Is Well with You.

All is well.

Patience and Trust

patience and trust

expressions-of-nature.com

Do not hold your breath in anticipation of what is to come

Instead breathe deeply and slowly

Allowing yourself to align

With the rhythm of the Universe

Gently, calmly and peacefully.

Dear One, your human mind wants everything yesterday. You require prior knowledge of future events in order to prepare and plan. And yet, all that is needed is patience and trust, that all is unfolding exactly as it should. Have you not yet realized that you are part of a force much larger than anything that you can imagine with your human mind?

Until you allow yourself to become a part of the All That Is, your mind will continue to attempt to control your world in an unproductive fashion. Rather than trying to force an outcome, can you not instead allow it to unfold at its own speed? Do you not understand how each event is the result of many synchronous and simultaneous interactions; some of which you will never be aware; some which seem completely unrelated; and some which appear insurmountable from your human perspective.

You are a part of a wondrous matrix of life that spans the entirety of creation. Even so, your contributions are important and necessary, to allow for the expansion of the Universe. Where you begin is to become more aware of the connections you have with others, with Nature and with the unseen world.

Can you become more aware of the synchronicities in your life? Can you begin to trust your intuition, that gut feeling which gently directs you forward? Can you just pause, take a breath, and give gratitude for all that you have, rather than focus on your perceived lack in this world?

Dear One, start right now in this very moment. Take a deep breath and release the fears, the stresses and the worries that fill your mind. Go within and feel the connection of the soles of your feet upon the ground. Take deep measured breaths and breathe love in and out with each inhalation and exhalation. See the visions before you on that screen that exists just behind your eyes. You say you see nothing? Look again. For it is not just blackness, but tiny points of light, some colored, some static, some moving, but all connecting you to the all of creation.

Send your worries down to Mother Earth through the soles of your feet. Feel her strength rising up through your legs, supporting you and give gratitude to her for being there for you in ways you will never understand. For she is a part of you, as you are a part of her; a symbiotic relationship created in love, nurtured and empowered by love.

Do you not feel calmer already? Open your eyes and look at your surroundings. Can you see the points of light surrounding you, enveloping you in their light and sharing with you the knowledge that you need at this very moment in time?

You are one integral piece of the mosaic of life and all is moving forward exactly as it should. Can you trust that all is well and that your current life experience is one providing gentle growth, if you choose to accept the gift of it? Remember that your lessons are provided to you in numerous ways and it is your choice how many times you require them to come to you before you accept them and trust the results.

Dear One, you are surrounded by those who wish to help you move forward in the gentlest of ways. These are your unseen helpers coming to you in many forms as they attempt to get your attention and gently guide you forward. Every one of you has this and your life would be so much easier if you allow it to unfold in its most natural way, rather than trying to force a certain result. For remember, that your human perspective is very limited in seeing how certain events are very positive, when the immediate result appears so negative.

Trust and have patience. Accept who you really are and your place in the entirety of creation. Allow yourself the gift of help and assistance as you use your intuition and begin to notice the synchronicities in your life.

You have such potential.

You have such power.

You are filled with an unlimited source of love.

Stop, take a pause from the chaos around you and trust.

All is well, Dear One.

Dear One with All of Thee.

Trust

How do you move through your world?

Do you anticipate every potential problem

That could occur?

Or do you move forward with peace in your heart,

Knowing that all will unfold exactly as it should?

Dear One, it is time for you to open yourself up to the infinite possibilities for joy and growth in your daily life. You, in your human mind, cannot fathom the range of opportunities every moment of your life offers you. Can you begin to allow these blessings, these joyful moments, to come into your life without the fearful anticipation of what if?

This human existence can most certainly be challenging for you, but it can also be a joyful existence, surrounded by love and beauty. Yes, you came here to learn, and your lessons are presented to you at the most appropriate times over the course of your life. Some lessons were planned, but some others may occur because of choices you made in your forward movement. All will contribute to your personal growth and to the growth of the All.

What would help you in your daily life is to release the worry of potential pitfalls, of life going totally wrong, from your human perspective. If you can release your propensity to fret, to worry, and to continuously replay the many ways you could fail, your life would be so much more joyful. Can you accept the fact that you are not able to fail? All that occurs in your life is a step forward-all that occurs.

How often have you anticipated a certain outcome which never occurred, but in hindsight, you realized how the actual outcome was a greater gift to you? Again, we tell you that your human mind is not capable of seeing the infinite number of possibilities. Your conscious mind may not remember the lessons planned for this lifetime. And with limited sight, your Ego does not account for the web of connection and how everything must fall into place before an event can occur for optimal outcome.

Can you trust that you are being guided forward towards the most wonderful experiences with gentle lessons for you or for others? Can you release yourself from the bindings of fear which hold you back from unanticipated joy and beauty in your life? Can you close your eyes and fall back into our loving embrace, trusting that we will hold you close, with gentleness and love?

Dear One, if you can allow yourself to trust that all is unfolding in the most perfect way; you will spend less time and energy worrying about the future. Remember that you are more powerful than you realize and that which you fear can easily be called to you, if you continue to repeat the dreaded scenario in your mind. Can you instead, free yourself from worry and trust that all will be well? All will be well.

Think of the energy you put into these fearful thoughts every day of your life. What would you do with that energy if it was no longer spent on future or past events? We remind you that all that exists is the present, the now. How free would your heart feel to trust that you are being led forward with a loving touch?

Try it for a day. When those fearful thoughts of the future begin to creep in from the shadows, shine light upon them. Radiate joy and faith that all will occur exactly as it should. Know that you will have enough time to do exactly what needs to be done at this time. And by shedding that dark cloak of fear, you will be more receptive to following our gentle guidance to move you forward in the most wondrous way.

It is all a matter of trust. Trust that the Universe is unfolding in the most perfect way. Trust that you are a part of the beauty of this Universe and  trust that the strength of your connection with the All will guide you forward. There is nothing to fear, Dear One.  If you can accept the loving nature of the Universe, then you will realize that there is no failure, there are no mistakes. There is only love, and beauty and joy.

Allow us to guide you and encourage you to shine your brightest to illuminate the fear that hides in the corners of your mind. For when brought to the light, that fear will wither and fade away, for it is nothing. It is only an illusion of your mind.

Trust, Dear One.

Love and dance.

Feel the joy, see the beauty

Around you and within you.

Dear One With All of Thee.
