Close your eyes. Relax into whatever comes to you after the darkness. Wait in anticipation as if you were waiting for the beginning of a movie at the theater. Do you see the curtains opening? Do you hold an expectation of what image might show up or will you be pleasantly surprised? Wait for it. With your eyes closed and body relaxed, now you are ready. What is that word you hear? Follow it. Go into the sound of it, the way it is said, the possible meanings. When you shut out all other stimuli and let yourself receive, you enter a place where you can be you. Who are you? Let the word answer the question. Follow the sound, see the word written in front of you. Look at how it is written. Go to it and touch it, smell it, get to know it. This word that comes to you is your creation. Get to know it intimately. Did the darkness disappear as the word came into focus? Did your word light up that dark space you entered when you closed your eyes? This is how powerful you are, dear ones. You are creators. You have within you the means to bring light where there is none. You can bring joy into sad hearts. You can make a difference if you only close your eyes and find your way out of the darkness.
You are feeling the yearning to move forward, to stretch beyond that which is restraining you, holding you in place. Dear ones, open your eyes and you will see that those tethers are of your own creation. As you stand there frozen in fear of what lies ahead and remembering what transpired in your past, you are the only one who can release the bonds. Nothing you have done up until this point in your life can control you unless you give it the power to do so. But Master, you say, it is unforgivable. It was shameful and hurtful towards others. Forgiveness, dear ones, is unconditional; however, does not happen instantaneously. When you are dealing with feelings of shame, regret, anger, these are very strong emotions. Your mind knows you would be in a better place if you would release them. Your heart feels burdened underneath their weight. Your ego wants to hold onto them perhaps because they are all you feel you have left of a situation in which you were hurt very deeply. Well-meaning advice of “just let it go” make you feel worse and sometimes rebellious to hold on tighter to the feelings. Forgiveness, like grief, is a process that is individual to the person and the situation. There are stages you will go through as you forgive but keep in mind that when you decide to start the process you are unlocking the chains that were holding you. With each emotion you let go of, another cord is cut layer by layer until you have peeled away that which stings, that which controls you, that which was slowly draining you of life. Gently release those chains using your own free will to do so and in your own time. When you finally reach that place of total forgiveness towards another or towards yourself, your heart will respond in a miraculous way and begin to fill with love once again.
You have been contemplating lately about “purpose” as your Earth undergoes tremendous changes. Some are saying that what is happening in parts of the world can be compared to the ravages of war. All the disasters are causing stress on your planet, rearranging parts of her, destroying what was and leaving behind barrenness in some places. You weep for the Mother. You cry out for those no longer there and collectively you ask why. Be assured, dear ones, this is not a punishment dealt out in response to mankind’s actions. When you encounter stressful situations in your individual life, you sometimes think of it as punishment, do you not? You use words like “karma” to try to make sense of why such a thing would happen to you. You are looking at it as if it is an outside force doing something against you for some reason and your human mind goes to work to explain it. Many teachers have tried to help you understand Oneness; yet, you continue to see yourselves as individual, as disconnected from the whole. In this solitude you imagine you have to continually defend yourself against the outside forces. You compare, criticize and judge others around you. You lose sight of your purpose for being here having this human experience. Just as you see Mother Earth being ravaged and question why it is happening to her, you see vulnerability in yourself and when something happens you immediately question why it is happening to you. Look at any situation you are experiencing in your human lifetime with your spiritual eyes instead of your human ego eyesight. When you take everything personally as though it is an attack on you, you lose sight of who you are and you stay in defense mode. You are a spiritual being. This human body you are inhabiting is only for a short duration. Open up to what your purpose is for being here at this particular time. Get your mind off the perceived attacks and focus on how you can help be part of the solution for the collective whole. Tap into that connection of Oneness. It is there in that place that you will find the peace you are seeking and your purpose will be clear.

That tug of war that is going on inside you is creating chaos and confusion. Take a step away from the situation at hand and you will soon see the fruitlessness of the effort you are expending to try to maintain control. You want so badly to be right, to be the victor, that you have lost sight of what is important and who you are hurting in the process of winning. Sit for a moment and imagine that you are on top of the highest mountain looking down into the valley. There is no one there but you and you have everything you need with you to survive. Watch as the clouds slowly drift by you. Breathe in the tranquility. Now ask yourself, would it matter if my mountain were not the highest mountain in the world? Can I be happy and fulfilled here on this beautiful mountain as I am surrounded by peace? When you surrender to where you are at this particular moment without comparing that experience with any other, without contemplating if the grass is greener somewhere else or the view more spectacular, then you have achieved true freedom. How you perceive things in your world is how they will appear to you. If you always see your mountain as lower than someone else’s, then it will be and the feeling of lack is what will surround you instead of the beautiful tranquility that is waiting there to be discovered. Grab onto those clouds and surrender to each now moment as it arrives. The peace that will surround you will feel like a warm comfortable blanket; and you will know that in letting go you have won the inner battle.
When you are in your alone time, those quiet moments where you shut out the world and quieten your mind, and begin to slowly open your heart, you become closest to who you really are. As the flame slowly ignites, you feel its warmth and your breath falls into a rhythm, a beat that matches the frequency of the planet. You feel the energy start to expand with the warmth, urging it to lift you higher to that realm where there is only the matched vibration to yours, the realm of pure love. It is in that place of knowing the Oneness that you relax into the flow of who you are among the swirling mass of spirit. You are drawn into the vortex of it, spinning and floating, surrendering to the moment. This experience, this merging of energies with no agenda, no boundaries, no limits is the most freeing moment you have experienced since coming into physical form. Here on this dimension, you feel no separation. Your soul has merged with every other soul and together you form into Oneness. You remember what it was like there. You have been seeking this your whole life. Allow the energy to swirl around, through and from you. Remember as you do so and know that it is the true you. You are so loved.

There is an energy moving through you, around you, traveling ever outward and upward as if being drawn by a magnet. Indeed, you feel the pull. You sometimes want it to slow down as the feeling it brings is so intense. What is this, you ask. I am not ready, you say. Your heart is pounding, your ears are ringing, and still the energy swirls around you and will not be denied. You are on a path that is familiar and unfamiliar all at once. A part of you is remembering who you are, why you came here in this lifetime, and where you are returning to. While this can be disconcerting if you let it, it is also what you chose, what you agreed to before you even came here. Your path is no ordinary path. There are twists and turns that reveal truth, that signal universal change. You feel this change in you and you empathize with those who are experiencing it with you. You are a Guardian. Your way has not been an easy one this lifetime out of necessity; it helps you understand and strengthens you for what lies ahead. You have overcome your dependence on your physical senses and now are able to use your elevated state to observe, to hear, to feel, to know the truth. It is time to learn what love really is, Beloveds, and to understand it within both your heart space and your mind. Love is the very essence of life that gives birth to consciousness. The vibrational frequency of love will actually form an aura extending from the body, bathing you in a soft white light. As we begin to understand the message of love we will find ourselves attracting to us other individuals that form a collective whole, all vibrating on the same frequency. The collective consciousness of humanity can only be changed by love, the ultimate cause which gives rise to all other vibrations. Raising the level of consciousness of humanity is the ultimate plan for peace and must be done through a new understanding of love. You are a Guardian. Let this message of love sit in your heart space and travel upward to the chakras above the heart. Absorb it and as you do, you will find that layers of old thought patterns will be peeled away as this new revelation opens your remembrance of who you are and you will find your why.

Taking a break from outside distractions and spending the day with myself showed me a few things. Yes, there was the impulse to reach for the mouse and with a few clicks be instantly connected to the hustle and bustle of social media. There was also the impulse to pick up my phone and check messages. I had huge arguments with myself that all started with but … things like “but what about the groups I administrate” and “but I always do this…” Yes, the struggle is real. We get so wrapped up in our ego monkey mind and letting it control what we do and when we do it that it gives us no time to be with ourselves. We know who is on vacation and where, what others are eating, who got a new animal or lost a beloved pet all the while neglecting to schedule our own vacation or plan our meals or pay attention to our own furbabies … or just stop to smell the roses.
So, I smelled some roses today figuratively. I took time to assess the direction I was going and how my life was progressing. Barbara Marx Hubbard states “Ask to know what you are born to do. Follow the compass of joy.” I took time to enjoy nature and became more centered through connecting with Mother Earth. I listened to some very spiritually connected people making a whole lot of sense and had my soul fed. I played with both my inner child and my two furbabies. I took time to listen to a friend who was struggling and gave her my full attention, unimpeded by the distraction of the computer. I laughed at myself. I had fun being with me! I looked in the mirror and asked “what do you want?” I am so used to asking other people that and listening to their answers and yet when I asked that person in the mirror it was like a totally unique experience. Suddenly, there was a gleam in my eyes. I found myself intrigued that I was actually standing there waiting for the answer. Wow. What do I want? It was an AHA moment.
Interestingly, after that interlude, I realized something very profound about desire. When we are in the mode of wanting something, i.e., our desire, our focus is on that. We are so intent on having to have it and then when it does materialize we relax from that intensity. We “breathe” again. There is happiness, bliss, joy. What if we took the desire out of the mix? What if our focus became that state of happiness, bliss and joy? I’m not saying don’t want anything or strive for more of whatever your dreams are. Instead, place the focus on the feeling of already having your desire. Knowing what you want is only the first step, not the entire enchilada, although for some it becomes an obsession. Once the “that” is established, then go within yourself and find the emotions connected with the fulfillment of that desire and let that be where your attention stays. Whatever your “that” is, absorb it as a part of yourself. You are the creator of your own reality; thus, you can make the statement, “I am that, I am” for whatever your “that” is. In fact, doing this exercise with everything in your world, including people, will be a mind-blowing experience!
When you take time to really know yourself and all your wants/desires, your likes and dislikes, your idiosyncrasies, then you can begin to fall in love with yourself. When you fall in love with yourself, you are going to want the best possible life for yourself. That, my friends, will be the motivation for making your world a better place to live. I am so grateful for all of you! I love you. Namaste
