Messages From The Ancient Ones – The Spirit of Awakening

As you awaken more and more each day, this Spirit ignites a new level of love and insights within you. There is no need to distress yourself over the ones who have not yet awakened. They seem angry, discontent, and frustrated. These are signs of pending awakening, so rejoice for them.

With this knowledge, please also know that it is not your task to awaken them. It is our task.

You can let go of the need to convince or coerce them into being happy or relaxed. They cannot do this yet. Let us do our work for them and with them.

Remember when you felt angry, discontent, and frustrated? Did any amount of criticism from outside forces help you shift? Did any amount of soothing from outside forces help you shift? No. It was circumstances brought to you that allowed you to awaken. Sometimes those circumstances were miraculous in nature! Their undeniable Divine Intervention opened your eyes and your heart. Sometimes those circumstances were difficult and sorrowful. These circumstances yielded their perfect result of you stopping and attempting something new and different.

Just as we cheered for you as you shifted, our cheers await those others who are nearly there.

Just as angels sang as you shifted, so, too, the angels await their shifting. And so, you also shall wait for the others to awaken.

In the meantime, keep on being the love that you are! Keep resonating in those higher frequencies of love and compassion, courage and appreciation. This adds energy to the physical plane which assists those others in taking the step out of darkness and into illumination.

Your own shadow side expects everyone to think and act like yourself. Allow your essence of Light to hold sacred ground in this - without judgment or criticism or impatience.

There are two kinds of suffering attached to this. One suffering from being around those that still feel the need to embrace anger, discontent. and frustration and the other suffering comes from judging them about it.

Use wisdom to create safe boundaries for yourself. You need not experience either form of suffering.

There is no set time or deadline for awakening. Each grasps awakening when they become able to do so. The more you are able to embrace your own awakening - and with it love, compassion, courage, and appreciation - the less you will be drawn down by those who express an un-awakened nature and the sooner they might grasp new insights and perspectives.

This requires the practical application of being at peace with what is. That is no small task! Let us help you with that! Ask for help and it will be granted to you! Ask us to bring the Spirit of

Awakening to someone and we will amplify our efforts. The process is still free will, so we cannot make anyone awaken. However, we can draw near to you as you hold sacred ground and we can draw near to them in hopes of their shifting.

Remember, it is all as it needs to be. It is all unfolding in perfect time and harmony - even if personally it doesn't feel like it. Each stress situation becomes another opportunity for you to go deeper into your own awakening into peace.

We await you there.

Graphics

I’ve been working on some Facebook ads for our upcoming Healing Light Expo (April 13th and 14th at the Red Lion in Kennewick). I have a bunch of graphics I’m reviewing to see if they will work for us. Then I’m finding text that fits the graphics and fits what our Expo is about. And the text can only be a few words per ad. “Feel the Energy!” “What Will You Learn?” are a few of the phrases I’m using.

Graphics speak to our hearts directly. You’ve heard the phrase, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” The words then speak to our awareness. Words cut through illusion and directly to the heart of a matter. Together, graphics and words inspire or instill a desire to move forward.

Do you have a picture or a graphic that really speaks to you? A sunset? An innocent child? Puppies or kitties playing? You might want to find a picture that really speaks to your heart. Then ask it what it’s saying to you!

Is the sunset calling you to rest? Or is that sunset calling you to notice the beauty around you? Only you will know its true message for you. It speaks to YOUR heart. Listen!

What about the innocent child? What does that picture tell you? View the world with child-like wonder, or trust yourself, or rest easy in the arms of love . . .

What about playing critters? Are they asking you to play? Or are they asking you to set aside your busy-busy life for a bit to recharge.

What picture did you choose? How is Divine Source using that image to communicate to your heart? What is that sacred message?

As you go through your day and you happen to catch a visual that grabs your heart, just be with it for a moment. In that moment, that sacred moment, Divine Source speaks to your heart. It’s wise to listen. It’s a blessing to listen.

I’m including a graphic with this blog. What is Divine Source saying to your heart within this visual? Perhaps you cannot find the words right away. That’s okay, let the image sit within your heart for a bit. When the message comes, you will hear it. You will know it. You will experience it.

Take the time to be blessed by this process. You might want to try this every day to see what your guidance might be!

Creating Clear Boundaries

I was chatting with a friend the other day and she expressed reluctance to bother me or intrude in my life with a question. I replied that she could trust me to tell her if I was too busy to answer her at that moment. She said she felt relief in that expression of trust. Safe, clear boundaries do that! They help us feel safe and they help the people in our lives feel safe.

She went on to say that she knows co-workers that defer even if they don’t want to because they feel obligated. It’s uncomfortable for everyone. She wonders, “do you really have a moment for instruction or are you just saying so because I’m the lead and you feel you can’t say no?

Energetically, unclear boundaries feel unsafe and therefore everyone feels on edge a bit.

So what are safe boundaries and how do I get there when I can’t say no?

I totally get this! I remember years ago I could NOT say the “no” word. Just couldn’t do it. I would do things I didn’t want to do or bail out at the last minute. I would have a neighbor take my car for the whole day when I only got the car one day a week to do errands. At great hassle to myself, I gave in – every time!

I knew I had to set a boundary but I just didn’t know how.

So, I did what I always do when I’m stuck. I prayed about it. Now, personally, I think prayer is magic because here’s what happened. That neighbor called again knowing that I had the car. I had a ton of errands to do and needed it for my own stuff. As the phone was ringing, I still didn’t have an answer and I was still praying!

I picked up the phone and heard her request. What came out of my mouth was nothing short of a miracle. I said, “I’m uncomfortable with that.” I didn’t know what else to say, so I kept silent. I knew that whatever excuse I came up with she would have a better reason. It felt like I”d dropped a bomb. After a really long moment the neighbor said, “Oh, ok. I’ll just get Sue to loan me her car. Thanks anyway.”

That statement “I’m uncomfortable with that” was TRUTH. Pure truth. No guilt, no shame, no blame, no excuse . . . just truth. That truth set me free! Holy Wow!!

That one experience gave me courage to speak my truth in other situations. The trick is finding the truth amidst the muck of obligation, fear of judgment or criticism, and the verbal/emotional manipulation from others. I didn’t want them to feel badly because that meant I would feel their pain as well as mine. (Untrained Empaths feel everything!) When I gave in, at least I only felt my own suffering.

It gets to a point when you just have had enough of that inflicted suffering and just want to be free of it. The truth does that. It frees you. It frees you from manipulation and it frees you from fear, obligation, and suffering needlessly.

But I don’t want others to not like me or be mad at me. They might not be mad at you. The might, but the pain of being mad at yourself is worse, isn’t it? It certainly gets to be after a while.

So, I wrote out some TRUTH statements and taped them next to my phone so I’d be ready. That really helped in the days when I was learning to speak my truth.

You see, we can comply – do what others want. Rebel – defy a request out of hand; don’t do what others want when you said you would, or wiggle out of an agreement. Or Walk a Sacred Path – doing what is in your heart to do. Guess which one grants you powerful energy to move forward? On a sacred path, we may choose to do something that someone asks of us – not out of obligation or fear but out of our free will and our loving heart. Or we will decline their request – not out of anger and frustration but out of our free will and our loving heart.

Whatever you are doing, notice if you have an energy of being pulled back, held up, or restricted . . . you are not walking in your truth on your sacred path. (To be clear, we all do things we don’t like to do. Cleaning toilets isn’t fun, yet that may be part of my sacred path.)

So, if someone is expecting me to do something, I get to choose which space I’m in. Comply? Rebel? Or Walk a Sacred Path. Finding my truth leads me directly onto my sacred path. Even though to someone else it might look like complying or rebelling. You heart knows the truth of it.

The truth is neutral. The truth does not carry a negative charge – even if it’s not what the other person wants to hear! If a person chooses to get upset, you get to stay neutral. How cool/powerful is that!?! Even an Empath can walk the Sacred Path of Truth without suffering.

Here are some Clear Boundary statements that speak the truth:

-I’m uncomfortable with that.

-I know I did that for you before, but not today. (Remember -don’t give them a REASON or an EXCUSE – they will pick it to pieces and overpower you. Just speak your truth and be silent!)

-Perhaps another time. I have other commitments for now. (If they push for a when, just repeat yourself . . . “I have other commitments for now.” If they push for what’s more important than them, just repeat yourself . . . “I have other commitments for now.”)

-Hmm. That sounds like a tough situation. If anyone can figure it out, you can. (Silence – let them figure it out! What a gift you are giving them!)

-I’m not sure how to respond to that. Let me get back to you. (give yourself time and space to think! You have a right to that!)

-I have to think about that.

-I don’t have an answer right now.

-If my help wasn’t an option, what else might you do?

You get the idea! Have fun with creating your own list based on your own circumstances.

Remember: Speak the TRUTH and then be SILENT. If you are asked a question like “Who do you think you are?” they are not seeking information, they are seeking to belittle you, steal your power, and get their own way. Don’t bite that hook! It’s manipulation and you are breaking free from that!

Keep finding new ways to say no without using the no word. It can be fun! This empowers you while helping others feel safe in your world. Your life is your world. Own it.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Dance Through Challenges

You may find your outside circumstances challenging. Those challenges are not here to punish you nor to harm you. Rather, those challenges are just life as it occurs around you.

Allow yourself to move effortlessly with these challenges. Like a dance of energy - a dance with energy. Push against the challenges and you'll go nowhere. Move with the challenges and you will swirl and float in ecstasy.

Your inner being hears this music. It longs to move and shift within its tones. Ask for guidance to know which way to move in this flow. You will be guided.

This is not to say you won't be inconvenienced . . . yet within any inconvenience you will find treasure by releasing the distress and moving with the flow. Even an inconvenience holds great treasure for you should you be willing to look!

You might find a new spiritual resource within you that you didn't realize had been gifted to you. You might find a strength or level of peace granted to you. You might even connect more deeply with your guides and angels, if you allow yourself that opportunity.

Feeling irritated by life's challenges? Ask to be shown the beauty (power/message/wisdom) of the moment. Allow yourself to receive this information. The irritation fades as the message appears.

Your awareness opens the door to this dance.

We dance with you.

Something New

So, Phil just installed a new keyboard for me – well for us. I primarily use this computer, so I’m claiming it. We’ve had this new keyboard for over a year. Actually, we’ve had two new ones just laying around. Phil’s work, hobbies, and ½ acre of property keep him really busy! This keyboard is wireless. I’m not sure I’m going to be putting it on my lap to type, but should I ever want to, I could do that!

Why didn’t I replace they keyboard myself? Good question. Actually, I was way-okay with the old one. My fingers knew just where to go. As a matter of fact, I had written two books (and a lot of re-writing – lol) and numerous classes using that keyboard. It was so well worn that the letters on the keys are no longer visible. Nothin’ but black. The numbers were still clear and a few letters like “Q” were still visible, but most of the rest of them were worn off. Which is no problem when you are typing along lickety-split and letting ideas flow onto the page. However, once a correction becomes necessary, you kinda need to see the letters!

So it is with life.

We get on auto pilot and we just let our lives flow as we go. Until we discover we need to make a correction. Perhaps we require more rest and auto pilot drives us to late nights. Without seeing what we are doing, change becomes impossible.

Seeing – rather perceiving – what we are doing leads us into awareness. That awareness is like my new keyboard. Bright and clear.

Certainly, my fingers aren’t flying over the keys as fast as they were on the old one. There is a slight difference in the placement of the keys. They are both ergonomic, yet this one has bends where the other had straights. This one has lows where the other one had highs. I’m having to do a lot of backspacing to have a correct text. It would have been hilarious for you to see the mess I started with! At the same time, I can already feel this keyboard is even better for my wrists and fingers. (I feel another book coming on!!! – actually two more.)

So even when our awareness leads us into change and it feels uncomfortable, we also experience the subtle shifts that allow us to be even better – feel even better – perform even better – live even better.

If you feel like a change is due, you might need a bit of help to get started. Find someone to assist, like Phil. Then allow yourself to get acquainted with the new process. Allow imperfection to happen as you step into a new pattern. In time, it will just be natural – like the old way was. Only now you’ll be more comfortable in your own skin – in your own life.

A small change makes a big difference.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Renew

Each day you begin again.

The air you breathe today has been a part of the Earth's system since the beginning. Rain, evaporation, plants growing - all these create renewal.

Breathe in a fresh breath of air.

Renew yourself as you breathe. Inhaling new opportunities and new insights and new life force energy. Exhale and release old toxic energy along with old toxic thoughts. Let your awareness ride the cycle of breathing. Notice where you are and why you are here.

With this noticing, ask for Divine assistance in clearing and releasing that which no longer serves. Just as you cannot choose to hold your breath for very long, your soul is programmed to release old toxic energy - if you allow it to do so. Merely allow this to happen. Just as an exhale is natural, so is this releasing process.

It takes effort to hold on to old hurts and old sorrows. Do you really wish to spend your limited energy on such things?

Hold on to something better. Hold on to your own value and your own worth - if even just your worth to us. We value you highly! You have a great purpose to fulfill and we honor you that you have come into this physical plane to do so.

Take courage in your breathing. Notice the peace that can attend in the next breath. In the following breath, call to you curiosity. In the next breath, call to you kindness. As you call in a quality, an old quality that no longer blesses you can be released and replaced.

We honor you in this.
