What is truth?

Is your truth the same as another’s?

How can you see past the illusions of this world?

Is it even possible?

Dear One, there is only one Universal truth and it is built on love. Everything else is an illusion. However, understanding this in a world of illusion is a difficult task. For there are so many opportunities to be led astray. How can you keep your course in a chaotic world swirling with illusion?

You have been given the tools to see past the smokescreens of others. And they include intuition, but also compassion. This path is filled with your personal illusions and those of others which cause you to doubt your ability to discern what your own truth is.

You all have the ability to recognize your own truth but you do not yet trust yourself enough to believe what your intuition is telling you. This requires practice by allowing time to go within and connect to your higher self through quiet times, meditation and contemplation. You are being led by your higher self throughout your day. You have just forgotten how to listen.

All who are present here upon this physical plane are on a journey of awakening. And despite what you may think, more are awakened at this time than ever before. Many will not be able to complete their journey. But they will travel further on their path with the help from those like you who are already awakening to their true selves.

How can you help them? It is by living a life of compassion and loving kindness. There is no need to engage with others in angry discourse due to a difference of opinion. As you move forward on your path, a deeper understanding of the Universal truth will be revealed to you. For all have an individual path of learning and awakening which differs from that of others. The truths revealed have not changed. It is you who have changed as you move forward, becoming more open to the next level of teachings to be revealed to you.

Because another disagrees with you does not make them your enemy, for remember that you are all connected and you would be fighting with yourself. All are searching for love and connection. And many hold onto beliefs because they see no other way. Can you show compassion and loving kindness to them rather than anger and judgment?

Remember that this plane is a learning ground and all have a purpose. And some do have the purpose of being a catalyst to move others forward. They have a choice of being a benevolent catalyst or a more derisive catalyst. That is their lesson. Your lesson is to respond with grace rather than to re-act in anger or judgment.

But all are here to move forward, awakening to their own divinity and connection to the All. Can you use your intuition to discern if what is presented to you is truth or illusion? Can you rise above the discord and be a beacon of light, of calm, of integrity and love? This is how you help others awaken. It is by providing them with an example of how to be in chaotic times.

Go within and become more accustomed to how your higher self speaks to you. Move through your day knowing and trusting that you are being guided constantly through your connection with the higher planes. As you do this you raise your own vibration and the vibration around you.

This raising of the energetic vibration on this plane will most certainly affect others. It is their choice whether they re-act with fear or respond in love. You in your daily life can be a benevolent catalyst just by allowing yourself to awaken and trusting your connection with the All.

Dear One, do not spend time trying to convince others to believe your truth. Show them by how you live and move through this world. Use compassion. Send love rather than anger and judgment. You are a being of light and are capable of being a beacon for others; lighting the path for them. It is their choice whether to follow. But perhaps you will show them a way they have never before envisioned.

Be the loving soul that you are.

Walk in strength and confidence

That the world is unfolding as it should.

Help the pendulum of life shift

In the direction of love.

It is possible through you.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Question Everything

What is your truth?

Is it the same as another’s?

How do you know

What is truth

And what is imagery?

Dear One, what is your truth and how do you determine that indeed it is truth? Do you believe in the words of those whom you trust and therefore accept without thought that what they say is true? Or do you question everything, including these words, before you accept them as true? How do you accept something as truth?

Consider these questions as you continue to move forward upon your spiritual path. For indeed, you are strong enough and knowledgeable enough to accept something as truth even though others may not. You have the tools in order to determine truth when it is presented to you.

How? Your internal compass, your intuition, will tell you what to believe and what to discard as fabrication. The path forward includes honing in on what your higher self, your internal guide, your gut, is telling you about what you hear or see or experience. And as you continue to grow, you will recognize the feelings that you have when either truth or lies are shared with you.

With the human condition comes much emotion, desire for events to occur in a certain way, at a designated time. Feeling this way does not include the understanding of divine connection or divine timing which affect how and when events/interactions occur.

As you continue to grow, you will begin to understand this and begin to move through your day with an inner calm and peace. You will also learn to allow the intense emotion that arises to settle down before you make a decision on how to move forward. For like unfiltered apple juice, once it settles, clarity will become more apparent allowing you to see unencumbered by the chaos around/within you.

Dear One, all the knowledge you need is within you, for remember that you are connected to the Source and that connection lies within your heart. It is time for you to begin to trust yourself in how you feel about something or someone. But again, this is best done when you have allowed your emotions to settle down to provide more clarity.

As you move forward, we encourage you to question everything, yes, including these words. Notice how they make you feel and then decide if this is truth for you or not. Do this in all aspects of your life. Practice discernment without judgment. For each person has their own truth which is determined by their life experiences and where they are on their spiritual paths.

Allow yourself time to listen to others even if you do not agree with what they say. For they may still provide you with some insight on how best to move forward without judgment or blame. The human condition provides opportunity for personal growth and often much suffering accompanies this growth.

But as you become more aware of who you truly are and what your place is in this world, you will discover that you are able to view others with compassion rather than judgment. Do you see how this all works? Trust, faith and inner peace allow for more compassion and less judgment. And those on the receiving end of this loving compassion will be helped to find their own inner peace allowing them to continue the chain of loving embrace.

It begins with you. It always begins with you as you allow time for self-reflection. This begins a chain of events that continues forward on and into infinity. You are the source of love. You always have been. It just takes time to unveil this truth in the midst of such suffering and chaos.

You are never alone, for you are a part of the Divine with all the knowledge you need within you. Self-reflection will reveal your truths to you and provide you with the strength, courage and compassion to move forward in love.

For indeed, you are love incarnate

On a journey of self-discovery

Surrounded by love.

Remember you are connected to the All

In love

And you are never alone

Dear One With All of Thee.

Finding Your Way

 

Are you feeling lost

Not knowing how to move forward?

Are you questioning who you are

And why you are not at peace

Within your heart?

Dear One, do not despair at the state of your life and the unsettled feelings you have within your heart. Do not despair at the number of questions you feel lie unanswered in your mind. Know that you are never alone and that relief is but a breath away.

The world in which you live is changing at a rapid pace, not only by events that are obvious, but also due to unseen energetic alterations occurring daily. Though not as obvious, these energetic changes are felt by you in sometimes subtle and often profound ways.

For you are an energetic being, connected to all things by these unseen forces. You are one with Nature, one with the Universe, one with the cosmic consciousness. You have lived most of your life focusing only on the physical aspect of your existence. But you now feel that something is missing in your understanding of how things really are in your world.

Your internal clock moves in synchrony with the all of existence, unnoticed by your physical nature. And your true essence knows that the time is now for you to become more aware of your true nature and connection. It longs for your consciousness to awaken once again to the awareness of who you really are, a Divine Being.

Your physical mind cannot comprehend this concept, while your heart center aches for your journey of remembrance to begin. And it begins with a breath, a centering breath, as you allow yourself to trust once again that internal, eternal voice that guides you back to your truest essence.

Your mind resists because it has no point of reference with this non-physical existence. The purpose of your mind is to help you navigate this physical world. But your heart knows and is aching to be once again your guiding force, as your time has come to reawaken and reclaim your position in the all of creation.

Fear not, but allow your intuition to come forth and guide you. This is your inner voice, and just as like attracts like, it is anxious to join forces with all those who have already begun the journey of awakening. This internal struggle will ease as you give more credence to what your sub-conscious already knows.

The answers are in how you feel, not in how you think. Follow your instincts and allow yourself the time to sit and breathe, to have the quiet time of connection. When you do this, your mind may not want to co-operate and stop the chatter. But do not despair, for every attempt you make to sit and just be will allow you moments in which you truly do connect; even though you may be unaware at first at how far you are able to travel, amidst the perceived chaos. Do not strive for perfection, only for practice, and one day you will suddenly realize that you have achieved more mastery in connection during these quiet times.

When you sit in silence, place your hand upon your heart and focus on the warmth of the touch. Contemplate those for whom you have gratitude, compassion or love. Breathe and just feel the calmness settle into your entire being. Your journey has begun and as you continue to practice this as often as you can, the internal struggle shall lessen. You will begin to trust the gentle voice that whispers in your ear.

Dear One, know that you are never alone and that help is always available to you at your call. Feel your connection with the Mother, with all things and all of existence. You are not greater or lesser than any of them; you are a part of them. Cease the judgment, the comparisons, and replace those with peaceful acceptance of your connection with all. You belong exactly where you are and you have something unique and powerful to contribute to the All.

Trust, as we do, that you will find your way back to Us. In truth, you have never really been apart from Us. There has always been a part of you who understands the reality of your existence. It is just now stretching and beginning to emerge in all of its glory, moving from within your heart to fill every cell of your being.

Dear One, all is well and you are on your way.

Accept the glory of who you really are.

Accept the connection which has always been.

Accept the loving embrace that envelops you at all times.

You are never alone and you shine with a most glorious radiance.

Dear One With All of Thee.

 

Synchronicity

synchronicity1

“Ascension,Everything Connected”     http://www.rick-lilley.deviantart.com

Dip your toe into the stream of consciousness

And allow yourself to be carried

To exactly where you need to be today

And trust that all is as it should be.

Dear One, how often have you noticed the synchronicities in your daily life? Are they chance encounters or are they caused by the lighting of energies across the web of connection? This is the web of connection that keeps you all close to the Divine, even at those times when you feel lost and in despair.

There is a purpose to your life and to all those in existence here upon this plane and in the entirety of creation. When you consider that all are connected across eternity by a pulsing flow of Divine energy, then can you accept that synchronicity is more complex than you might have considered.

The human mind was not intended to be able to grasp many of these concepts that are the backbone of your daily existence. There is more that is required to begin to understand and the answers are held in that quiet space between your words, thoughts and actions. It is here where the truth lies and where you can discover your true nature of being and how the universe works.

Can you accept that there is more to existence than what you can sense with your physical body; sight, sound, taste, touch, smell? It begins with opening your mind to infinite possibilities of connections and interactions between not only the seen, but also the unseen worlds.

As the vibration of this plane continues to increase, more are coming to help with the ongoing ascension that appears to be causing such chaos in your world. What is occurring would be called ‘growing pains’ in your world. But growth is necessary and a constant in your eternal life. It is the challenges that are laid before you, by your own doing, which give you the greatest opportunities to stretch to your greatest capacities.

Dear One, as this process continues to move forward, synchronicities will continue to increase in your life. Some may discard them as mere coincidences, but they are much more than that. They are the answers to your prayers, the help for which you asked, the required connections that contribute to not only your growth but to the growth of the All.

If you can fathom an intricate web of energetic pulses connecting all of creation, you can begin to see how the action of one affects the other; how a pull in one direction causes the entirety to shift, if only slightly. Can not a spider feel when an insect has touched down upon its web? So too can you feel, if only subconsciously, the pulse of energy flowing to and from you, across space and time.

Synchronicity occurs as a result, as an impetus, to move you gently from one area of growth to another. It is the stepping stone, the helping hand, the tool given to you to assist you in your purpose here in this physical existence. You do not move alone. Your insight and inspiration come from the group consciousness working together with you to move you and all of creation forward.

Accept these gifts given to you as you move through your day. You may not understand at first why this particular situation was presented to you. But as you move into and through it, you may begin to realize the gift of it all.

Dear One, you are connected to the All, but you also have free will to act or respond as you wish. It is all a part of the adventure of life here upon this plane. But when a synchronistic occurrence appears in your life, remember that you are being offered help and re-direction to stay on the path chosen by you a long time ago.

You receive and you contribute to this web and the result can often be a synchronistic moment.

Accept this gift of connection.

Give the gift of connection and open your mind

To the sacredness of every moment of existence.

Each moment filled with a pulse of love directed at you from the Divine.

From the Divine to the Divine, like to like.

One With All of Thee.

 

A Wondrous Life

fineartamerica

fineartamerica.com

Live from your heart.

Allow the memories of your true nature

To flow into your conscious mind.

And begin to understand the wonder

Of this physical existence.

Dear One, you have come here, into this physical plane, to experience the wonder of an emotional life. A life filled with opportunities to experience a broad range of emotions from intense joy to debilitating sorrow.

You ask how this can be so wondrous when many of these emotions cause pain and suffering. And yet, if you were to review your life, you would find times when the pain and suffering you experienced allowed you to grow. Upon reflection, you would remember the times when the painful situation you experienced caused you to take a great leap forward.

Perhaps you came to realize that your perception of yourself or of another was inaccurate and you were able to see things as they truly are. Perhaps having gone through your own painful experience, you decided to take action so that others would not have that same experience. Or perhaps your experience caused you to redirect your life and lead you down the path you were meant to take; the path that would bring much joy to yourself and to others.

These times of adversity are stepping stones to the path of personal enlightenment, to the path of discovering who you truly are. Deep passions or unrecognized gifts surface through the mist of suffering or challenging times. Inner strength, humility, or a sense of purpose arises through the turbulence of great emotion. Complacency is replaced by action and involvement. Gratitude and forgiveness emerge as you better understand the lives of others through similar experiences. And you begin to recognize that this life’s journey of yours touches many others as their lives touch yours.

It is impossible for you to travel this human experience alone. Even life as a hermit, physically isolated from others, cannot prevent the energetic connections that traverse continents and universes from reaching you. You, Dear One, are but one string on a universal instrument of love that crosses dimensions. Your own vibration contributes to the song of the Universe in a way no other can.

The wonder of this life is in the potential for personal growth and self-realization. This occurs while you are surrounded by beauty and embraced by the loving arms of your guides as they encourage you forward. You, Dear One, came here to learn in a way not possible in any other realm. And no matter the outcome, you will be welcomed back with gratitude and love.

When you feel intense emotion, allow it to flow through you. Do not force it back into the recesses of your mind. Allow it to flow until it is spent. Do not act on it. Just allow it to flow and ask for help in moving through it. When it has passed, rest and give your physical body time to recover from the release of that energy.

For it is during this time of rest that you are open to hearing our words and our guidance. This is the time when the clarity will come, when the turbulence of emotion has passed. This is the time when you are more open to the realization of your own Divinity through the process of release and rest.

When you open your eyes once again, look for the beauty surrounding you in the song of a bird, a ray of sunshine or the caress of a loved one. And be aware of the synchronous occurrences at this time of redirection. For this is the most opportune time for a gentle redirection as your mind has released that which it has held onto for so long. Empty your mind of all thought. And allow the grace of your higher self to filter into your consciousness and guide you forward.

Dear One, your life here has purpose and each breath allows opportunity for more growth, be it through action, redirection or rest. Every perceived mistake is just another teaching moment for either you or another. Forgive yourself. Forgive others and see the wonder in this physical existence. See the beauty not only in that which surrounds you, but also the beauty that comes from within you.

We see it.

And it is wondrous.

 

Remember

Remember who you are

Remember from where you have come

Remember the power that resides within you

Dear one, it is time for you to begin to remember the source of your very being. It is time for you to reconnect with the Oneness; to access the knowledge which you need. It is time for you to acknowledge who you really are; a divine being on a physical path.

Do not shy away from this very truth about yourself; for there is nothing but joy in this truth. You, you, dear one are capable of anything. You have the knowledge, the power, the strength to change the world.

This is the time for you to take that first step into the memories that reside within you. There have been glimpses along the way, in your dreams, in a stray thought or reflection. Things have occurred in your life that had no earthly explanation. For indeed, this earthly plane is but an illusion of reality.

This earthly plane is a forum for discovery of who you really are. The veil has thinned to provide you better access to the knowledge that you need to move forward this day in your own glorious light.

The darkness of this plane is beginning to crack under the shining light of love. It still has much fight left in it and will push back as hard as it can. But the darkness is beginning to shudder in anticipation of its own decline.

You are the reason for this change in the world. You may not yet see it, but there is a change, a positive change. And the more you realize your true self and all that comes with this state of being, the faster the changes will come unto this physical plane.

Dear one, can you accept the truth about yourself? Why would you feel unworthy when you are a part of the Oneness ; when you bathe in love with every step that you take? The heavens are singing with joy in anticipation of your realization of who you really are.

Remember, Dear one, that your light shines brightly within. Remember Dear one, that every breath you take is charged with positive vibration. Remember, Dear one, that you have the power to create your world; the knowledge and the wisdom to lift this world from darkness. You, Dear one, can do all of this.

Begin today, begin now, to see the light within. Feel the love around you. Accept the knowledge available to you. Begin today by accepting the gifts which lay at your feet. Begin with a smile, a skip in your step, with gratitude for all that is present in your life.

Dear one, you are the brightest star in the heavens come down to this plane to make a difference.

Dear one, you have begun to push back the darkness within and around you as you walk in tandem with love. For you have begun by just considering the possibility that all of which is written here is true.

Believe in yourself and what you can do.

Remember your connection with the Oneness and all which that brings to you.

Open yourself to the possibility of greatness.

For you are One With All of Thee.

And there is such power, such strength, such love that comes with this.

Shatter the illusion created by Ego and see who you really are.

And hear the heavens sing because of you!

Know Thyself

Know your truth.
Speak your truth.
Live your truth.

Dear One, in order to move forward you must walk in the true essence of who you are. It is time to remove the mask that you have worn for so many years. It is time to be your authentic self. For in order to continue on your path, you must walk in your truth.

When you know and live in your truth, you will find clarity and inner peace. There is no judgment of your true nature. It is who you are. If you see yourself as you really are and feel that you need to make some changes, then seek help to make those changes. But do not judge yourself. For you have come into this physical realm with the tools and the gifts which will help you move forward and move the Universe forward. YOU are unique with what you bring to the table. Use that uniqueness with compassion and love and change the world.

Everyone here upon this plane has their own special niche in which they can make a tremendous difference in the energetic patterns that surround you all. No niche is too big or too small in order to make a difference. The stage is artfully set with exactly the opportunities and the tools that you may need in order to do what you came here to do. Do not deny yourself the gifts that you have. Do not deny yourself the pleasures that await you as you move forward in light and love. Do not deny yourself the expression of your true nature, your wondrous being, your shining light.

For it is needed today. And as you all begin to progress forward on your paths, you will see how quickly your world will begin to change. There is no time to waste as now is the critical period for changes to be made. The choice is yours, Dear One, and we shall lead you forward with your permission. But we need your help and your willingness to see things as they truly are, within and around you. We ask you to consider our plea for your help in the days to come. No one is too small, too insignificant for this task. How could anyone be considered such when all of you have a brilliant light within that is beginning to glow brightly; with needs to burst forth in all of its splendor.

Know thy truth. Really know and accept it as your truth. It may differ from that of another but that matters not. For all are on the same journey of awakening and enlightenment. All are moving forward at their own speed. If you are ahead of another on the path, reach back and help them along. If you are behind another, reach forward and allow them to help guide you. But always know thy own truth and question all that you are told. Even these words. And if they do not ring true for you, then do not accept them.

Speak thy truth. Be honest and compassionate in how you live your life. Move forward from this day forth in truth. For living a lie does not serve you. And knowing and speaking your truth will give you the freedom that you seek.

Live thy truth. Allow the bindings of your deception of yourself and others to fall away. It is not necessary for you to convince others to believe as you believe. It is only necessary for you to be true to yourself and your own truths. For each and every one of you has a unique path to follow. The destination is the same, but the routes may differ depending on what you are contributing to the world.

Dear One, walk in peace and clarity.
For it is in that stance that you shall do the most good.
For yourself and others.

Be who you really are.
Be true to yourself.
And feel the eternal glow that comes with it.

Individual that you are
You are still One With All of Thee.
