Your next step may not be obvious.
Your challenges may attempt to obscure your next step.
Your doubt may cloud the way.
Yet, you can step forward with trust. Each step forward will reveal another step. Trust the one-step-at-a-time process and the way will be revealed. Soon you will see your journey more clearly. We applaud you for your forward movement. For you it may seem small. Yet, to us, your efforts are huge.
Still, there are some days that you allow auto-pilot take over.
Certainly, auto-pilot is important for the little repetitions things that require no new thought or insights, yet sometimes you use this method of transportation for all of life. This cheats you out of experiencing the little beauties of your journey as well as the wonderful opportunities that slip past unnoticed.
Just stop throughout your day and check in to see if you are present. Are you fixated upon a situation and not really alive? Are you intentional in your presence?
It is when you are engaged in intentional presence that we can assist you more easily. It is when you are engaged in intentional presence that we can send signs and guidance to you.
Here we are! We hope you can notice us even more fully today and the rest of your tomorrows. We truly do walk with you.
It's okay to say, "no".
Your compassionate heart wants to be of service and wants to help others on the journey. Yet, you forget your exist within a finite body. This finite body has its limitations. So does your energy reserves and your pocketbook.
God is the Ultimate Source. You are not. You may be an expression of Divine Love and have opportunity to share and assist. This is good. We thank you for that.
If you find that you are blessing others by being a blessing and feel empty afterwards, you may be over-blessing.
Please remove yourself from being the ultimate source for another human being. By over-serving, you close the door for another to the Source. You also close the door for yourself to Divine Source by standing in the way rather than Following The Way.
As your energetic reserves dwindle, recharge yourself through prayer, reading spiritual books, receiving a healing, quiet time in meditation, getting your hands and feet in the dirt to plant a flower or to just "be" for a bit. Allow yourself to be blessed - by others and by Divine Source.
Once recharged, you may bless and be blessed. Don't know how to say "no". Perhaps you could say, "I am taking some down time today." or "I'll consider it and get back to you." or "No, thank you." or "What might your other options be?"
We honor your compassionate heart in this physical journey and walk with you as your acquire a greater sense of balance and joy. We encourage you to focus your compassionate heart upon yourself, also. We bless you in this.
Your world has so much to offer you. We encourage you to take advantage of all there is here to bless you on your journey.
It is quite easy to perceive your environment as hostile. There is much in your world to prove this to you.
Yet, this assumption dismisses and hides the truth of the grace granted to your world by Divine Source. As humans, it is easy to recognize the chaos you create that appears to darken the grace flowing to your world. Yet, grace still flows!
Yet, notice what wonderful things human-kind have created to bless one another . . . to make life simpler and less burdensome on many levels. This creative energy bases itself upon the same creation energy that emerged in the beginning of time.
You have access to this creation energy when you seek it. This creation energy can express itself as works of art and also as problem solving. When you release the negative bias that abides as common thought forms within humanity and seek this creative energy, by grace it is freely given.
Once you tap into this creative energy, you have an abundance of insights, awareness, creativity to not only solve current difficulties in your life, but also to share with others.
In this way creativity blesses you and others. Grace adds to grace and all are blessed.
May you become the blessing you already are!
Your heart can be a powerful tool for healing and a terrible weapon for destruction. Guard it with your trained attention.
One's feelings give you powerful clues as to your state of being. At the same time, one's feelings are based upon life experiences up to this point in your existence. If your feelings have been trained by trauma to expect and to notice sorrow and suffering, you will arm yourself with that awareness as a weapon. It becomes so easy to judge another by this armed awareness.
So how does one know what is the highest and best? Do our feelings not have value?
Yes, they have great value when they are trained by Love.
What trains the heart? The Heart-of Hearts. Your soul. Within your Heart-of-Hearts/soul/spirit there is Truth. There is Divine Connection within your Heart-of-Hearts that transcends your feelings. This Divine Connection links you to All That Is. In this connection, there abides peace, love, appreciation, gratitude, and joy. If your feelings stir up any other feeling experience, look deeper into the Heart-of-Hearts to really discern what is happening - what is the Truth.
Truth resides as neutral within the Heart-of-Hearts. It causes no discomfort. Yet, Truth becomes a powerful force for action. Action without doubt. Action without guilt. Action without fear. Action without expectation. Action of fulfillment. This action of fulfillment provides tremendous energy stores for you to use.
Feeling exhausted? Return to your Heart-of-Hearts and seek the Truth. (Not right and wrong, but rather Truth!) This Truth not only sets you free from any unpleasant emotional response, it also provides vast energy stores for you to access and utilize.
Unable to find the Truth? Speak your truth in this way . . .
I get to . . . .(fill in the rest of the Truth from your Heart-of-Hearts). and along with that statement, add this one, too. . . . They get to . . . . (speak from the Heart-of-Hearts).
Take the time to listen to your Heart-of-Hearts. Great value resides here.
May the Truth set you free and empower your journey.
Bless and be blessed.
When you seek harmony, it will be revealed to you. When you seek joy, it will be revealed to you. When you seek blessings, they will be revealed to you.
When you seek worry, it will find you. When you seek distress, it will find you. When you seek annoyance, it will find you.
Be careful what you look for.
The fastest way to shift out of worry and distress (fear) is to bless someone else. To bless is the simple act of specific, intentional kindness in thought or deed. When one finds a specific, intentional kindness, those other troublesome energies fade and dissipate from your consciousness and from your life experience.
The amazing and beautiful thing about blessing someone else (or blessing a situation with kind thoughts) is that the blessings return to you in an amplified manner. Not only does your personal energy change and that feels better, but also the energies around you shift and become magnetized to positive life experiences.
Bless and be blessed.
You speak much about freedom in your physical realm. It means so much to you that you would die to protect freedoms for yourself and for others.
Are you truly free?
Humanity enslaves itself with old beliefs transmitted through generations. Humanity enslaves itself with whisperings of far away danger. Humanity enslaves itself with worry and a mass consciousness of fear.
This is stealing your sacredness, Dear One!
This is stealing your joy, Dear One!
Take back your joy, your sacredness, and your freedom by knowing who you really are. (a Sacred Being of Light!) Recognizing the truth of the power of love and light over darkness (even if darkness appears to be winning on the surface - it's not true! Light from the Divine Realms is even now shattering the grip of darkness that you fear! Hold fast!)
Look at life through different eyes, Dear One. The eyes focused upon darkness will see darkness. The eyes of Light will perceive Light.
Then, your hopes can come into being. Then, you will really be free.
You've heard, "That which you resist, persists."
And perhaps you've heard, "That which you fear, will appear."
We say to you, "Your frustration begets your destiny." Yes, we noticed that it doesn't rhyme. Yet, it holds great truth for you.
So often, we notice that you become frustrated with life or life's circumstances. We rejoice in this! Not because you are frustrated or that you feel an unpleasant feeling, no. Rather we rejoice because you've just tasted part of why you are here!
Let us explain. If there wasn't an ocean, Columbus would not have been compelled to cross it. If there hadn't been hatred, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King wouldn't have stepped up into the light of truth to expose it.
You view your frustrations as, well, frustrating. Blocks. Things to resent. Things to grumble about.
We view your frustrations as opportunities for you to find a better way!
There is a better way! You, in human form, get to find it, activate it, share it, live it.
With the smaller frustrations, you get to create a better you.
With bigger frustrations, you get to create a better world.
So, look at what isn't right or doesn't feel supportive or blissful. How could you make that better? Once you begin to look at frustrations in this new way, you will see your energy level rise and your enthusiasm for life will take off.
You were not meant to turn away from frustrations. Rather you were meant to create new pathways for yourself and other toward joy and fulfillment.
So, instead of feeling badly that you feel frustrated, look deeper! There is great joy beyond the frustration!
We walk with you in this journey.
You've seen pictures of tulip fields and fields of lavender. Beautiful, aren't they? They never cease to amaze. The vibrant colors and the fragrance of the lavender fill the senses.
So too, the energy fields that you reside within look like this to us. Each person creating their own energy field that blends with the energy fields around them. Just as each tulip blooms for itself and shows its own color, yet situated within a field becomes spectacular. One lavender plant has many stems of blooms, yet combined with a field of other lavender plants, it also becomes stunning.
Does this lessen each plant? No!
So we encourage you to notice the field of energy you find yourself abiding within. Does that field of energy help you expand and grow? Does that energy field seem dry, lifeless and empty? This again, in no way depletes you. You thrive due to your connectedness to the Divine. The field merely allows you and others to be seen more clearly by the outside world. Your brilliance need not depend upon external associations.
At the same time, you may feel blessed by the encouragement of others. So, even though you recognize that your value does not exist outside of yourself, you may reap the benefits of shared energy of like minds.
Whether you walk a lonely sacred path or journey on a spiritual cruise ship, your path is your own to discover. You may find you move in and out of connectedness with other like minds though your connection to Spirit remains steadfast in all things.
Whichever you choose for yourself, we hope you know that we gladly join you in your journey. We adore you and find great joy in assisting you in your time to bloom.
Be well. May your heart-of-hearts bring you peace, joy and love.
The darkness of this physical realm has many discouraged, fearful and distressed.
We wish you could see your physical ream from our perspective! Our closest reference point for you would be seeing the Earth from space. When part of the Earth is bathed in sunlight, the other part is in shadow. Yet this shadow is not without light! The moon and stars illuminate the night. As your satellites show you, cities light up like bright pinpoints of light visible out in space.
So, too, even in the darkness that seems to prevail, pinpoints of light (YOU!) pierce the shadow!
See it for what it is . . . merely a shadow. A shadow of the weakness of the human condition called life.
The Divine Essence that indwells you, dispels this shadow at every turn! Do not loose heart, Dear One! Fix your sight upon the bright light of awareness. This dispels the shadow within you. What you are really afraid of is losing your own light to this darkness. Know this!!! This shadow cannot overtake you! Connect with True Light and darkness flees from you!! Embrace the Light of Love and watch the shadow tremble and run from you.
You are the essence of the Living Light of Love. Dwell in this Truth. You will be blessed and be a blessing to many.
Stay open. Blessings flow from this openness. What does that mean?
Often human beings get caught up in auto-pilot. The day-to-day hum-drum that poses as life.
This is not living Dear Ones! This is existing. Your soul/spirit calls out for more - much more!
Certainly, daily tasks must be accomplished. Your physical form requires teeth to be brushed, meals to be prepared, eaten and cleaned after. Yet. these tasks are meant to SUPPORT you - not suck the life out of you. You grant them much more importance than they are. We don't wish for you to ignore these. Rather, we wish for you to see them for what they are - support mechanisms by which your physical form can feel safe, clean, healthy and alive.
It is from this aliveness that true living can begin!
By being open.
Divine Source and all the energy beings that are within that domain await your open attention so that they may guide, attend to you, and enlighten you.
The next words you hear in a conversation may be just the information you require for your next step. Be open to hearing. The next thing that you see may have insight or inspiration for your abundance. Be open to seeing. The next moment of peace may hold great restorative energy for your healing. Be open to feeling.
Become willing to allow all of us within the Heavenly Realms an opportunity to serve you. We delight in bringing you answers and insight.
Be open. We await the opportunity to connect with you and lead you into safety and peace.
