When Change is Scary

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

Bitterness, resentment, and envy are all emotions based from the fear of lack.  Humans envy someone whom they perceive as having what they themselves desire.  Resentment builds towards those who humans feel have something that they themselves are entitled to.  Bitterness erupts from situations where the perception of “should” was paramount in the mind of the holder.  “I should have received that promotion” or “I should have been born rich” are two typical statements We Angelics here a lot.

Should is an ugly word for humans; it creates division instead of togetherness.  It represents entitlement instead of humbleness.  It is a viewpoint of judgment instead of compassion.

When you are incarnated into the human form, there is no “should”.  There are lots of possibilities and very few guarantees, though, which will help to provide opportunity to you via the choices you make.  Many life experiences do not have free will, yet humans have free will and waste it prodigiously with regrets, resentments, and self hatred.

It is time for you to step back away from these poorly conceived ideas in your mind and realize the one Truth that you live by – you are having a human experience and that experience is created by you – by your choices, by your actions, and by your non-actions.

Only you can change the life you are living, so if you are miserable then it is up to you to make the choices to change it.  Even if you end up temporarily in an uncertain situation, is that not better than being miserable?  How long are you going to be miserable before you take the action to change your circumstances?

The first action humans should take is this – look inside.  Quiet your mind and ask within you for help, for guidance.  These things are present always within you – from your High Self, from your Guides, and from your Angelics.  We all work as a Team to help you through this life experience, but when you are not receptive and not open to Us or Our Messages, then you are cutting yourself off from Love and Support to help you through.

If you still do not feel or hear anything, then we suggest you look carefully at your situation and make plans to change it.  Are you residing somewhere that is painful to you? If so, find a way to make a change.  Look up resources outside of your family if you must, for they exist.  You are not looking for them, but they are there.

Ask for help – it exists. You are not the first person to experience what you are experiencing and you do not deserve to stay in a place of misery.  You have to be your own advocate.  Yes, it may very well be scary.  We know this, and We are here for you.  We will share Our Love for you with you, so remember you are Loved.  You are worthy of living a good life – We know this even if you do not.

Living in a comfortable situation while you are unhappy is still being miserable.  Do not look at what “others have” compared to what you have.  Do not look upon others as “more fortunate” or “lucky” to have what they have.  You only see the outer shell of their life – not their whole life. They could be miserable and staying put because they are afraid if they leave their comfortable home they will not have a comfortable home again.

Yet We say to you – they are not happy, so what good is a comfortable home when you are miserable?  Better to be living in a not-so-nice place and be happy with yourself than living in comfort with someone you do not respect, someone who does not respect you, and which you daily endure hurts – physical, emotional, or mental.

Fear is the only thing holding you back.  The opposite of Fear is Love.  And Love is everywhere you look for it – you only have to be open to receiving for it to be present.  You are Loved and where there is Love and Life, there is Hope for change.  Not from others – never from others. Hope exists within you, FOR YOU.  You are the one to change – not anyone else.  Know that regardless of how daunting it is, there is a way for you to change your life.  Be not afraid, for We are with you at all times.  Call upon Us and We will feed our strength into you.

Do not believe the Lies told to you.  Not the lies told to you by others that you are unlovable or unworthy of love; not the lies that you will never be able to make it on your own or that you are too stupid to do anything right.  These lies are told to you by those who wish to manipulate you into staying put, because you make their life better.  They do not make your life better – you make their life better.  So make the changes necessary because you deserve to have a life where you are making your own life better.

These lies come from many sources – your family members, your mate/partner, your friends, and even inside your own head.  For all too long you have listened and believed these lies so they echo within you.  Set them aside and believe US now – you are Loved. You are worthy. You will be JUST FINE at the end because you are making choices for yourself, for you to be happy.

You are Loved.  We are here with you, Beloved Ones.  Change can be large or small.  Even changes that seem insignificant can have great impact upon you and your life.  Do what you need to make these changes and set your fear aside.  Life does not have to be about hate and conflict, pain and manipulation, force and dominance.  Life is about choice and it is time for you to choose yourself above any other, for only when you help yourself can you help the others in your life.  Choose you.

You are Loved.  Call upon us, Beloved, and We will flood you with Love and Support always.

We Love you unconditionally.

Living the Human Experience

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

What is the purpose of being human?  For those who have started on the path to wondering why you came here, allow us to supply you with some things to consider.

In the initial stages of waking up from the mind sleep that the majority still experience, most humans realize that the beliefs and concepts taught to them by their parents, religious establishments, and leaders are incorrect.  Some ideas are realized to be complete fabrications, lies stretched beyond comprehension in an effort to stop questions from occurring within the minds of those who are starting to question.

During this particular stage of the process, many people experience anger and even rage that their parents and those they respected would use them with such ill intent.  It is not Our intention to encourage that anger.  The root of anger is Fear and We do not want you to stay rooted in Fear.  Fear helps no one and in fact, will stop your thinking and analyzing processes.

Instead, We encourage you to feel compassion for those who taught you these things, for the Truth is that few humans are awake and fewer of those have the courage to attempt to stop the machine called indoctrination from moving forward.  The only way it can be stopped is to stop it for yourself.  Look, question, gather facts and information, and allow your experiences to help you along the way.  We Angelics, your Spirit Guides, your High Self, and the Creator all assist you with your life experiences to help provide you with opportunities for you to awaken out of the Human Mind Sleep state.

Now that you have awoken and are looking at your life, please know you are not alone in questioning why you are here.  The human world is chaotic and difficult and emotionally bruising.  It is a place to allow a multitude of experiences for each human from birth to death and each human’s life starts out the same – as an infant.

When your High Self created your Life’s Blueprint, many things were taken into account. Many contracts and agreements were established with soul family members, with other souls with whom you experienced other lifetimes, with the Ascended Masters and the Angelics whose families you would be a part of during this lifetime.  It is no accident that you are exactly as you are – it is part of the design, the result of much great work to create a lifetime of opportunities for you to experience and make choices and experience the result of those choices.

Humans, out of all the Creator’s designs, are blessed with the greatest emotional range and capacity.  No other race or species than humans have the ability to feel the multitude of emotions.  It is considered a great honor when the High Self has a lifetime blessed by the Creator; it is then the High Self’s responsibility to choose a piece of itself to incarnate on this planet for there are many pieces of itself that wish to have this opportunity.

It may seem that there are many humans on this planet today, so of course this is nothing but a common occurrence, but I assure you it is not.  There are a multitude of Souls and High Selves that contribute to the population in the human environment, but that is temporary for this particular human experience.  Many other human experiences have a great number less humans present. Each human lifetime is designed – including the type of human experience needed to add to the High Self, which then adds to the Soul and Over Soul.  These criteria dictate the when and where the human life takes place.

So We circle back to the “why am I here” question.  What is my life purpose?  Each human has many life purposes, many goals, many lessons to learn.  Many lessons are shared lessons, shared with the other humans existing at the same time as you do.  But other lessons are created for your life plan and may be very different from those around you.

Many times humans feel abused, sorry for themselves when they believe their life is not perfect, it is not like the person across the street’s life.  Comparing your life to another’s serves no purpose other than to feed self-pity and victimization.  These are emotions you are capable of feelings, but they will not assist you in growing through your experience, so We encourage you to process through those emotions as quickly as you can and get back on track.

What is your motivation?  Why should you even get out of bed in the morning, We hear you ask?  Each human was provided with a construct, called the Ego, that assists with survival. It was learned during the beginning stages humans required some assistance to survive through the traumas that can occur.  There is no sin in ending one’s life, but it does cut short the purpose of being there and it can incur Karma with those agreements and contracts you were unable to meet or complete.  But still, each human has Free Will and being selfish is a condition the average human exhibits.

So again, what is your life purpose?  In simple terms, to discover who you are.  To discover the TRUE YOU, the one that has been buried by conditioning.  To uncover the You that is the real You instead of the You that was forced into a box a long time ago.  To shed the ideas you believe are Truth and return to a state of questioning, until you resonate with your personal Truth.  Your personal Truth shall set you free; it will allow you to grow and experience and Love, but it takes time.  It takes baby steps along the way, for shedding the norms, the mores, the conditioning of a lifetime takes a lot of work.

So what is your purpose?  To heal.  To uncover your True You.  To Grow.  To discover within you all the wonderful things you were designed to be, to experience, to share.  To rediscover the connection within you to the Creator, for it exists within every human.  To feel joy, love, and gratitude for the gift called Human Experience.

This takes work.  All too often humans want immediate results, instant gratification.  We know that, and all We can do is counsel patience and suggest you seek Wisdom. Wisdom is highly underrated by humans, yet it is the one thing for which each person has a capacity. Not the exact same wisdom, but each person has the capacity as it is essential for personal growth.  Wisdom is the internal teacher, it helps humans to learn from mistakes and to make reasoned choices.  Wisdom allows humans to stay alive, to grow, and to recognize opportunities when they are present.

So, you want to know your Life Purpose?  We Angelics suggest you start with the most basic of lessons – uncover the True You from under the conditioned You.  Examine everything – every thought you have, every belief you possess, every idea that tells you who you are.  And when you think you are done, start again.  For the Truth is, everyone around is just like you.  There are no differences other than superficial ones.  No one is “more special” or “better” or “perfect” because the reality you live in is a construct designed to provide an experience.  And the participants in that experience come from the same spiritual essence that created your reality.

So, where you think you are better than others, examine that closely.  Where you think you are worse off than others, examine that closely too.  Examine everything and then, when you have done that twice over ask again why you might be having the human experience.

You have much to gain by this work.  Spiritual Growth is not for the fainthearted, fortitude is required.  Dig within yourself and We Angelics, your Guides, High Self, Spirit, and the Creator will all be supporting you with Love and Joy.

We are here with you always through your human experience.  Call upon Us and allow Us to assist you as We can, for We Love You unconditionally.

We Love You Always

Greetings Beloved Ones!

We greet you with Light and Love and ask you to receive now the Highest Vibration of Love the Angelics can send to you, through the blessings and Grace of the Creator.

We were approached this week with the denouncement that it is a lie that everything happens for a reason.  The thought frame behind the decision it was a lie was that if the Creator truly loved everyone he/she would not allow pain and suffering to happen.

We have touched before on this thought frame, but We angelics would like to address it again. Human life is not designed to be “paradise”.  You left a state of love and joy to come to the earth plane for an experience of relatively short duration to experience all emotions and experience many different opportunities.  Sometimes these opportunities are viewed negatively, as they may cause one to feel sensations and emotions that, through a particular perspective, are viewed as pain.

The Creator gave humans on this plane of existence the opportunity to feel the most extensive range of emotions of all the lifeforms the Creator brought into life.  The Creator views these emotions as a blessing – not a curse and not a punishment.

When your life leads you into a path where you may suffer pain on the physical or emotional level, this does not mean that you “deserved to be hurt”; and it certainly does not mean that you should choose the path of the victim.  Emotions should be honored and each person should allow themselves time to process the emotional and physical situation that one finds oneself in.  But there is a difference between processing and wallowing.

Some humans have a tendency to wallow in their experience, never pulling themselves out of their pity poo poo pile and looking at their life and situation with the eyes of clarity.  Humans create their own reality and thus everything does happen for a reason.  It just may be a reason that is not immediately clear to the one experiencing the situation.

Many times we Angelics are called upon for assistance to obtain this or that.  Many times it is for us to find a way to funnel wealth, success, and love to people.  Of course, We don’t do this because it is not our place to change one’s life.  We provide love and support to you each, of course, and we always help provide the energy for you to make change happen in your life – but we will never do it for you.

If you have a guide who says they can make it happen, please call upon my brother Michael to rid yourself of the demon attached to you.

Many times humans experience loss, betrayal, and pain because another human has decided to act in a way that results in a way one would not choose.  If one shifts his or her perspective to accept that each person has the right to live his or her life as they choose and not strictly to benefit one, it is easier to accept the changes that happen easily and effortlessly.

Undo attachment upon other’s choices and other’s lives impact your ability to live your life to the fullest ability.  Each human should focus their love of their own life through meditation and use the energy to manifest that which is in their highest and best good in their life.  Yes, change will happen as a result, but when the dust settles you will find that you are in a much happier place as you will be in alignment with your higher self and your blueprint for this lifetime.

Remember – all change is not shouldered alone.  We angelics are here for you during all your days and nights.  You are never alone and when you feel fearful or anxious, call upon us and we will surround you with the love and support we can provide.

Take a moment now, while reading these words, and do just that.  Close your eyes and call upon your angelics, guides, and guardians to surround you with the love and light of the Creator.  Breathe the love and light in and allow it to ease your anxiety, ease your suffering, ease your loneliness.  You are not alone and you are not unloved.

Change is never insurmountable.  Sometimes extreme discomfort is required because you have entrenched yourself into your life ‘as is’ and you need a ‘rude awakening’ moment to help you realize that you are not living your life in alignment with the Creator and your higher self.

When you find yourself shifting into a place of self pity, remember you are not alone.  We are here with you.  Call upon us to help you during this time.  We can help you shift your perspective and help you see the patterns of your life that you live that create negative events.  The Angelics will never lock you into a place of suffering – you put yourself into that place of suffering.  We Angelics are here to help you shift out of that dark place and into a place of love and light.

Always remember we are here for you at all times but most especially when your life feels dark and desolate.  Regardless of what else you may feel or hear we NEVER desert you.  You must reach through the walls of pain to us and we will meet you as soon as you open your mind to the idea that we are there.  Regardless of what you are experiencing – pain, depression, suicidal thoughts, inflicting pain upon yourself – we are here.  And we love you just as you are and we love you for all that you can be.  We will never give up on you and we will provide you with the shelter available to you through the love of the Creator.

And if you are having a wonderful life we are also here with you.  We love you – regardless of the life you experience, always.

Blessings to you!

Be the Light and Face of Love

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

The time of seasonal change is upon you, and I wanted to share a message regarding change.  Many things change in the human environment.  The weather, schools, jobs, decor, friends, partners, and yourself.  You yourself are at the root of all change for it is your Free Will that creates your reality and your choices and your non-choices instigate change.

One thing that does not change is the Love of the Creator.  The Creator Loves you regardless of your clothes, hair, career, friends, or family.  The Creator Loves you regardless of what your choices and your non-choices are.  The Love of the Creator is the only Constant in this Universe and regardless of where you are, what you do, where you go and what you choose nothing can change that.

Humans all too frequently have idealized concepts of Love.  Love is everlasting, Love is exciting, Love is Calm and Peaceful, Love is this or that.  Regardless of how you feel about yourself or your newest special friend, the Creator Loves you.  We Angelics Love you.

We ask you to reach inside yourself and feel the Love we have for you and for you to extend that Love to yourself.  Take this moment, right now, and allow that Love to move through you.  Let the Love heal old wounds and release the things which do not belong with you any longer to the Light.  Free yourself from the things that bind you to a place of unhappiness, regret, and misery.  The things in the past that affected you helped you create the person you are today; they helped create the reality you exist in today.  For all that is behind you has created the person the Creator Loved and continues to Love.

It is time to Love yourself, “faults and defects” and everything else mixed up together in the wonderful being that you are.

Being on the earth plane may feel like a punishment; it may feel as if you are serving an unending cycle of servitude, but please stop thinking that way.  Your incarnation on this plane of existence is NOT a punishment.  Your Higher Self planned it and you agreed to it with joy and anticipation.  Life on the earth plane can be very challenging, very stimulating, very trying even – but you came here because of the opportunity of experience and growth.

Allow yourself to grow now, within the Love of the Creator, and allow yourself to move past the perceived failures.  Let those “failures” become moments of experience that have prompted you to become a better person, a kinder person, a person who has empathy for those in similar circumstances.  Allow yourself to grow higher in vibration by absorbing in the Love of the Creator.

As you grow higher in vibration, your ability to commune more with the Creator will increase and you will be able to absorb more Love and increase the opportunity to repeat this process.  Allow the Creator to Love you and allow yourself to Love yourself.  No one on the earth plane is perfect and no one is meant to be perfect.  Perfection is not the end game, not the goal at the end.  Growth is the goal and many experiences are still in front of you to prompt this growth.

Focus now on the Love that is surrounding you, filling you, freeing you from the chains you create in your mind.  Allow the Love to lower the barricades you have placed around you.  This will not make you vulnerable, no!  Instead it allows you to receive more Love in different ways.  As you Love yourself more, you realize that everyone has a job in this world and it is not your job to judge them or to judge yourself.  Your job, right now, at this moment, is to Love.

Become the Love of the Creator personified.  Allow the Love to Flow through you and into all that you meet today, whether you greet that person face to face, over the telephone, or electronically.  Allow the Love to flow from you to touch all those who Need the Love of the Creator in their Lives.  Be the Face of Love so to give Hope to those who have forgotten what Hope is.

Shine your Light brightly this day, Beloved Ones.

We are with you always.

Love is All There Is

Greetings Beloved Ones!

Today is a day of great hope, joy, and celebration for you are soon to be entering a time of opportunity.  Release your fears and allow the Love of the Universe to flow deeply into you, freeing you from the tyranny of the hurts and wounds accumulated over time.  Heal through the Vibration of the Universe accessible to you while you read these words.  Read them as many times as needed to stimulate the Healing needed by you.

Love is a complex thing in the Human World; in the energetic reality of our existence it is All That Is.  The Universe is but One and We are Each part of that One.  The only separation you experience is an illusion created to allow you the life you live as a human.

Realize that the people who surround you are not different from you, they are a part of you.  Indeed, you are a part of them.  We are all part of the Universal and as such we are all made from Love and return to Love in all realities, all forms, regardless of the choices made while human or other incarnated form, for Spirit Loves ALL.

Love one another in as many ways as possible while honoring each other’s life path and Free Will choices.  Share the Love you hold within you with those in your life – don’t withhold it or parse it out as if it were the most precious of metals.  Love IS the most precious thing in your reality and the more you share it, the more it will return to you.

Allow the Love of the Universe to shine through you, allow it to blind those around you, to encompass your etheric bodies and auras and to flood from your eyes as you look around you and gaze upon all in your world.

Love binds all of Spirit’s creations and creatures, large and small, and Love heals all the wounds that exist within.  Take the blessing that is included in this email and heal yourself and allow those around you to heal as well.  Cast down your doubts and fears and allow your true essence to flow into being.

Trust in Spirit, for the Universe Loves you Unconditionally, Absolutely.

Blessings to you this day, Beloved Ones.  Blessings to you this day.

Living One’s Life with Free Will

Greetings Beloved Ones,

We have touched upon the topic of Free Will previously, but we are going to address the concept again as it is a very important idea that cannot be understood too deeply.

Free Will is the intrinsic right of each being on the earth plane to make choices or non-choices as the person decides.  Each lifetime is written and directed by the choices or non-choices made by the individual and that person bears the responsibility of the choices and non-choices made.

One brings many different things into each lifetime.  Each lifetime is different; one’s higher self develops the blue print for this lifetime and so different factors affect each lifetime.  Whatever those factors are, whatever goals for learning and growth and enlightenment may exist, the most important factor in your lifetime is that of Free Will.

Some are confused at the idea of non-choice.  Some insist that when presented with intolerable situations how can they be held responsible for the outcomes of what occurred?  Were they supposed to die instead of suffering through a situation?  How would death benefit them?

Your societies on earth have made death seem such a tragic event, yet we know that this is not true.  Death is not the end of all there is; death is but a transition out of this dream called Earth Life and a return to the energetic reality of All that Is.  We do not understand why one would choose to make unethical choices or tolerate unethical behavior simply to maintain a status quo or even to gain a “better” lifestyle, but it is not our choice, it is not our decision.  We are here to Support and Guide as we can.

But yes, even a forced non-choice is still a choice.  Subterfuge may be necessary for someone to stay alive, but how can one turn that dishonorable and unethical situation into a beneficial situation?  How can one grow and learn and still be filled with the Light through making selfish choices?  It is the framework of those choices that matter and it is what takes place outside those choices that matter.

Perhaps you turn your back on a bullying situation because you need your job.  Your family depends upon you to provide for them and you know that if you report someone to management the only thing that will happen is you will lose your job.  So – you make a non-choice and look the other way.  That is the action inside of the work environment.  So what do you do after that?  One possible step is to look for another job and then when you leave you leave a report of all that took place.

Maybe, because you saw the other person was hurting, you help the person in some way – such as lightening their work load because you know they must be under tremendous stress.  Perhaps you take them out to lunch as you know their money is short and you pay for both your lunches.  Small things can make a big thing better.  Anonymous help can also provide assistance to those you are not aiding through direct action while not necessarily placing yourself in jeopardy.

So many individuals on the earth plane have succumbed to apathy; instead of just noting an event, step forward and do something about it.  Find your Inner Light and your Inner Voice and USE your Free Will actively – for regardless of what you do or do not do your life is being written by you.  Don’t wake up 20 years down the road in a pity poo poo pile saying “poor me, I hate my life, how did I get here” because YOU are responsible for your choices and your non-choices.  We love you and will support you always, but this is something that is important for you to understand.

Our friend Jeshua has a story he would like to share now to help you understand Free Will better.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In a village, a young mother dies leaving a small, five year old boy alone in the world.  The village is like many others and barely acknowledges the boy or his needs.  He has learned enough to forage food for himself and to start a fire to keep himself alive, but he moves into the woods nearby because the villagers won’t help him at all.  In the woods he can find what he needs and he discovers a small indention in the rocks he calls his “cave”.  Here, he builds his fires and keeps himself warm, and catches rabbits, digs roots, and picks herbs from the plants around him.

The village quickly forgets about his as soon as his sad, dirty face disappears.

Several years later, a man comes to the village seeking the woman and their child.  Discovering that the village has neglected to care for his child after his wife’s death enrages him and he beats the village elder unconscious.

The village turns its back onto the man and rushes to the elder’s side to tend to him.  The man goes out into the woods and slowly hunts the child down.  The child is emaciated, scarred, and wounded from casual and not-so-casual encounters with the local flora and fauna.  He speaks softly to the child of his mother and explains that he is his father, who had been off to war for many years, protecting the village from raiders.  The village had sent him as one of their representatives and the elder had agreed, as compensation for the risk, to look and care after the mother and child until he returned.

He helps his son gather the things he values and tells him that they are going on a long trip but will eventually be living in an environment where he will be cared for properly and taught skills and knowledge that would help him achieve success in the world.

Many years go by.  The boy becomes a man and indeed, becomes successful.  His life in the wilderness alone has receded into a dim memory until one day his father dies.  His father requests that he return his ashes back to the village where he was born so he can rest comfortably with his ancestors.  The young man reflects upon his father’s life and decides he needs to honor his father by returning his ashes to the village.  This trip will mean much discomfort from many weeks of traveling, yet it is important to him to honor the man who raised and cared for him for so many years.  This vibrant, young man from the city is unrecognizable from that sad, little boy they had last seen many years ago.

He gathers some friends and family and asks them to join him on the trip to honor his father.  As he travels, small memories rise to the surface of his mind; laughing with his mother as they foraged for food, watching her sewing rabbit pelts together to make winter clothing, and eventually, watching the light in his mother’s eyes fade as she convulsed on the ground from the wounds her attacker inflicted.

The boy-now-man is racked with grief and wonders if these are true memories or if they are the imaginings of a small child.

He and his party arrive in the village many weeks later.  They are accustomed to camping along the way as the villages are few and the inns to rent a bed are fewer.  The village looks as if it has seen better days in the past and the prosperity dominant in the city they live in not present.

He surveys the village and realizes not only how it has not grown, but that it is actually quite stagnant.  He finds and makes small talk with the village shopkeeper; she has few enough goods to sell but they will need supplies for the return trip and so he purchases what she has available.  They talk about how sad the village is now and how bustling it had been decades past.

He leaves his group outside the village square to find a place to set up for the night while he sets off to complete his task.  Memories flash into his mind.  Memories of them taking his mother’s body away and throwing it into a pit.  Memories of the elder turning his back on the young boy, telling him that he was not welcome in the village.  The young city man becomes unsettled emotionally as he continues his short journey around the village and into the woods.

Eventually he finds his way to the area he had lived in the woods.  There is little to discover there and he has doubts about whether he is in the correct spot.  He sits for a few more minutes, allowing himself some time to remember his younger life and then makes his way to the graveyard to complete the task that brought him there.  Even the graveyard looks decrepit and sad.  He spots an old man sitting in a chair against the wall of a nearby building and approaches him.

He respectfully chats with the man and discovers that the old man tends the graveyard and has done so for almost 40 years.  He has asked for help from the village elder as he has no apprentice and is physically challenged with the tasks nowadays, but sadly he relates the village elder’s refusal that no one has time for the “superstitious nonsense” of honoring one’s family and suggests all bodies should be thrown into a pit to rot instead.

The young city man shakes his head sadly and agrees that some people do not understand that the proper honoring of one’s family is integral to a person’s character.  He then asks about the rough dirt on the other side of the cemetery walls.  The old man explains that the pit is for those of bad character or strangers whose characters they cannot attest to.  Only those known of good character are allowed to be buried in the graveyard.

The young city man returns to the village where he had left his group and finds that a middle aged man has joined them, asking questions about the group and their journey.  He tells the man that they are just passing through on family business and will be leaving in the morning.  He asks the man who he is and the man identifies himself as the village elder.  He elaborates that he has been village elder for over 25 years and relates with relish the story of how the previous elder had been beaten to death by a man with no reason.

The young man from the city well knows the history between his father and the previous elder; when he had reached the age of maturity his father had laid out all the details before him.  He questions the elder closely on the story, looking long into the man’s face as he speaks.

The elder is a loud and boisterous man, who likes to hear his own voice.  He relates with relish that he was made elder while he was 25 years old because he was the previous elder’s kin and most of the men in the village had been killed during the war.  He speaks of his own self importance and how the village would be gone completely if not for him.

He let the man ramble on at length, allowing him to revel in his self-importance as the man from the city waited for the memory niggling at the back of his mind to finally emerge.  As the man slowly ran out of steam, he began to talk.  He told the elder who he was and explained clearly to the man the reason for his visit was to drop off his father’s ashes to his family’s gravesite.  The elder understood finally, who the stranger was and roared at him in outrage.

The majority of the village was paying attention to this exchange.  Old men and women alike came to their doors and windows when the city visitor had started speaking.  Those old enough to have treated the little boy poorly stood with their eyes cast down, afraid to look at the city man who had once been one of their own.  They could see from the city man’s demeanor and dress that he was educated and successful, and if they had treated him kindly he might have been willing to help the village during its time of distress now.

The village elder continued to rant at the man, discounting the agreement the village had made to the young men sent off to war and arguing that no one had harmed him directly.  The city man explained to the elder that he remembered everything that had happened to him all those years ago, including how the village had treated him when he was vulnerable and alone.

Calmly, he stood up and smacked the village elder hard across the face; the village elder flew back and lay stunned on the ground, holding his bloody lip with his hand.

“You lie too much and are rife with dishonor,” said the city man.  He addressed the village in a strong, but quiet voice.  “This ‘elder’ of yours is a liar and a killer.  His father allowed him to stay in the village instead of going with the rest of the young men to fight in the war because he was afraid to lose the son he had spoilt.

Then, once my father was gone, the elder’s son harassed my mother continually, until one night he broke into our small home, abused her, and left her to die.  His father the elder came and dragged my mother’s body out and threw her into the pit to hide his own son’s crimes, and the elder told me to leave as no one will help me.  The elder turned his back multiple times on the agreements of assistance he made with my father.

Eventually my father returned, my father learned the truth of what happened and he meted out the punishment deserved.  Your village elder received the punishment that your entire village earned for being dishonorable and living lies.  His own son, after taking on the mantle of village elder, also has not lived up to the responsibilities inherent with that role and position, and he continues his father’s legacy of being dishonorable and a liar.

And you each share the fault.  Each of you knew about the agreements made.  Each of you turned your eyes away and your backs onto the situation once the men had left for war.  And now you get to live with this village “elder” in a village that is dying – all due to your own choices.  Do not worry – I am not going to do anything further to him or to this village.  You will reap what you have sown – all those many years ago through today.

The young man turned his back on the village and the village elder and left them all to deal with the Truth he had brought into the Light.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In this story there are many instances of choices and non-choices.  We cannot tell you what the ‘correct’ choice is or was because there is no ‘correct’ choice.  There is choice and non-choice and both have ramifications and benefits.

Each person is responsible for their own Free Will choices regardless of what the circumstances are surrounding a situation.  If you believe otherwise, you are lying to yourself.  We will still love you, but the lies you tell yourself are just as damaging as the lies you tell to others.

We beseech you – free yourself from the lies you are telling yourself and embrace the Truth; it may be hard at first, but it gets easier very quickly and it will change your life.

Blessings to you, Beloved Ones.

Developing Trust and Faith in God

Greetings, Beloved Ones,

A recent conversation with a student has prompted us to respond in depth to the questions of Faith and Trust in God.  The concept of having Trust in God is quite complex and has many layers; developing Trust in God is required to actually establish Faith.  Without Trust in God Faith does not exist.

Faith is the embodiment of Trust in God.  At the highest levels of Faith there is no questioning, only action.  Have you ever wondered why the Angelics do not intercede in your life beyond offering love and emotional support?  Why do they not help more actively when they can see humans are having a difficult time?  It is because they have Faith and Trust in God.  God saw every possible action and choice available to you in your lifetime before God allowed you to incarnate into your current form.

Humans have a very hard time from the get go.  You get dropped into a body, it is uncomfortable and cold from the first day, you are helpless to deal with anything going on around you and entirely dependent upon others for everything.  Worst case scenario you end up in a horrible environment…and people wonder how God could do this to them?

God knew what goals and objectives your Higher Self had when the plan was made and God allowed you to come here.  God saw every permutation of every life and every interaction of every life…for all that exists, everything is finite to God.   God saw your life and how it interacted with everything and ok’d it, giving you the opportunity to be here.

There is a saying humans state that God never gives you more than you can handle.  Yet there are many individuals who would disagree and say that if God loved them then God would not let them experience pain.  Humans view everything, including death, as bad or good…never just is.  When you are in a dream do you remember you are asleep or is the dream “everything” to you?

Human reality is just a dream in many ways…a fleeting existence that is valid at the time one is experiencing it, but human death is not the end of all there is, so why would God be worried if someone should die, either through natural means, murder, or suicide?  All return to God in the end…so it is all good.  Why would God shield individuals away from pain?  What stimulus would individuals then have for change and growth?

Yes, it is the experience that is important…not whether something is good or bad, or whether someone feels something is “too much”.  That expression is without meaning…just because someone feels pain does not mean that one has been given “too much”.  Your life situation was created from every choice you ever made.  How many of those choices were taken and made out of greed, selfishness, unwillingness, wantonness, resentment, and other negative emotions developed out of a state of Fear?

When you develop your Faith in God, you start to release Fear and thus are able to heal more easily.  Love is all there is, but if you are in a state of Not-Love then you are in a state of Fear and thus you must reverse the process.  You must release the conditioning that you were raised with to discover that which resonates within you.  By being transparent with what you resonate you will come to a greater understanding of who you are and how you were designed.  Thus, you will have valuable information as you design your path to return to a state of Grace and Love with God.

If you believe that every choice you have made or not made has led you to this place in your life, how would God give you too much?  You created your personal reality and you are living it…and you are each the one responsible for changing that reality as well.  Not God, not the Angelics, and not anyone else.  Just you.  Understand – as long as you stay confused and mixed up emotionally you will always be giving your power away.  By developing a state of Grace and a state of Love you will have a platform to base your life choices upon that is not a state of Fear.

Love is All There Is.  The perception that Love does not exists is Fear and it is a lie.  When you return time and again to the idea that Love is All There Is then you will grow to realize that all this, the images, the politics, the pain, the promises…all are just wisps in the dream you call reality.  How much energy you put into this reality will make it more or make it less real to you.  It does not invalidate your experience – it just means your energy creates the reality you choose.  If you don’t like your reality, it is up to you to change it.  Many don’t because they are either fearful it will be “worse” or they are afraid of some unknown ramification…change scares many, many people.

So, if we return to the knowledge that God ok’d your life, then who are the Angelics to countermand God’s decision and take matters into their own hands?  They are embodiments of Love and Compassion, and have a constant connection with God, thus their Faith has a stronger reason to exist than Humanity does.  Thus they understand that God knows all and understand that this is just one aspect of a larger whole, an experience designed and approved for you to have.

“Why is my life this way?”  This is the basis of your questioning of God.  Even in the “happiest” of lifetimes everyone SHOULD ask this question.  It starts one on the path.  Even those raised in a religious environment should ask this question as it will lead to the path of self-enlightenment and a deeper connection with God.

So – that is the beginning…and the end.  But there is a whole lot in between.  Humans are designed to have emotional depths and complexities, so healing a hurt is not easy – it takes a lot of work and effort and if you think you have healed something then start over, because the chances are you have not.

Human societies used to respect the elders and the wise people of their tribes and communities. Wisdom and maturity were goals that were valued and the individuals in the communities strove for those traits.  Introspection and reflection were daily parts of one’s life and so while some hurts were never healed, the dedicated person would work their way through pain and gain wisdom of the events and grow in that manner.

Trust in God is one of the basic opportunities that all humans have, regardless of how they phrase it or how they define God.    Abandonment is at the root of all lifetimes.  Your connection to God was completely severed when you a small child and that created a lack in your life.  A place that was filled became empty.  In some households that lack will be more apparent than in others.

But the lack exists within each human.  That is the basis of all addictions, the desire for love and companionship, and the desire to inflict pain upon others who seem happier than you…common human patterns of behavior.  The root is the fact that you no longer Trust God, because God abandoned you here…alone and without your memories of what Truly Is…in this human world that is cold and harsh and you know something is missing…something is not right…but over time you bury that sensation in some experience or another.

School, activities, hobbies, family – all these things occupy your mind, but nothing quite ever fills the gap.  When you feeling the failure that is to fill the gap, that feeling in turn feeds into the distrust and unhappiness.  Maybe one’s life is far from filling that gap or maybe one’s life is close to perfect.  It does not matter, really.  The lack is there, present for each person to fill in some way, shape, or form.

Not everyone turns to the Spiritual to fill the gap.  Some turn to food, drugs, alcohol, addictions, manipulation, bitterness, politics…anything where one can get some form of instant satisfaction that buries the gap for even a little while.

The Spiritual Path requires solitude and quiet.  Why?  Because when one is alone by oneself one cannot escape from oneself, one’s choices in life, and one’s perceived ideas of good, bad, happy, or sad.  It provides the opportunity for one to reflect, which can lead to healing and growth.  Not always, as many prefer to wallow in their poo poo pile, but some individuals relish in the solitude that is not aloneness, and they grow and develop in their connection to God.

But the human society does not approve of time spent in solitude.  Your society today has done everything it can to create tools and toys that occupy every waking moment to prevent solitude.  Why? Perhaps because the ego would find itself diminished if one were able to grow beyond needing its approval and existence.  Perhaps because when one heals and grows the Detritus has nothing to feed upon.  Perhaps because those around you are jealous and fearful of anyone who grows beyond their approved status quo.  Perhaps because of these things and more.

Why would anyone or anything struggle to keep from changing a life that is unhappy?  It is the same answer regardless of what it is – FEAR.  Your solution to Fear is the absence of fear which is LOVE. LOVE must be present all the time, in all that you do.  LOVE feeds Gratitude which feeds Hope and Charity for self and others.

These attributes were not just arbitrarily made up – they have a purpose and that purpose is designed to help someone move through the rough terrain of the spiritual path.

When you find Love then you start to heal the mistrust you hold inside against God.  When you can look at your life – all of it, mistakes, shame, fear, all of it! – with understanding of how it was all allowed to take place to take you to a state of Grace, then you will experience Gratitude, another step towards learning to Trust God.

A State of Grace is a place of learning and growth in connection with God.  It is an elevation from your current perspective to one where you have learned from your choices and have healed and grown from those choices.  Misery leads to Grace because humans only respond to negative stimulation.  Thus, Misery leads to opportunities to grow, thus leads to Grace.  Grace is not Gratitude.  Gratitude is not the same thing as Grace.  You can be grateful for many things, but having Gratitude does not mean one has achieved a state of Grace.  When you have achieved a state of Grace, however, you are grateful to all and for all you have gone through.

In its simplest state, Trusting God means viewing with Gratitude the life you have chosen and led as a blessing and not a curse, with the realization that even when you felt isolated and disconnected from God that God was truly there every moment along the way.

The One Rule – Seek Love

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

In each human life, an opportunity is presented for one to view oneself with complete clarity and transparency.  Honesty has a moment to rip away all the curtains shrouding your identity and bare all within to the Light within.

Do not turn away from these moments.  Do not shrink away and cover yourself up.  Take this time to examine yourself closely, warts and all, for this is a gift to you from Spirit, from your Higher Self, from your Guides, and Guardians, and Angels for that which is attached to you will soon rush to deceive you.  That attachment is called the ego.

Your ego has served a useful purpose during your formative years; at times protecting you and at times limiting you.  The time has come to start separating your ego from yourself so that you can stand alone within the Light.

The Creator does not demand perfection; that is ego.

The Creator does not insist upon cleanliness and sterility; that is ego.

The Creator does not back away from that which is considered repulsive or unclean; that is ego.

The Creator does not demand ideology; that is ego.

The Creator Loves All; there is no differentiation amongst all; all are one and all are acceptable to the Creator and all are Loved by the Creator.

But wait; I can hear you now…you were taught this or were taught that…the rules and demands that were taught when you were growing up are rules of man, not the rules of the Creator.  The Creator has only one rule – Love.

Love for humans is very difficult; they don’t understand how encompassing this rule is.  It overwhelms people when they are given this simple, one rule, so they rush to delineate it, to clarify it, to slice and dice it up into smaller pieces…yet in doing so, they have obliterated the one rule – LOVE.

So now, we bring it back to you.  LOVE.  The One Rule, the Only Rule needed to be followed.  When in confusion, seek Love.  When faced with hatred, seek Love.  When cornered and afraid, seek Love.  When loved and in love, seek Love.

What this means is a whole lot of difficulty for you, but the Creator does not worry, for the Creator Loves You.  So you have your whole life to learn this rule, your whole life to live this rule, your whole life to share this rule.

Maybe you have lived a life where you loved this group, but did not love that group.  No matter, there is time for you to learn to Love All.

Maybe you were hurt and are too afraid to Love Anyone?  That’s ok too; Love can heal you and help you learn what Love really means – not just what you were taught or shown it to mean.

Love is more than a singular feeling, more than a word that is said.  Love is complex and glorious and can truly be the entire meaning of your entire life.  Give Love a chance.  Seek Love.  Share Love.  Be Love.  Love is all there is.

Blessings to you.

Relationships and Unconditional Love

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

A question was posed to us recently:  how can I best love unconditionally while seeing the humanity in that person?

To love unconditionally is not a normal human state of being.  Humans love, but in passionate and diverse ways.  And most individuals, when they decide they love someone, are actually interpreting a particular emotion as love, instead of it truly being love.

Again, human love is very conditional – even the love of parent for offspring can be very unconditional.  When you look at what the job is of a parent – to raise a child from birth to adult in a manner that is healthy, teaches values in alignment with society, and which prepares that child to take its place in society as a functioning adult – it is amazing when it is successful and usually tragic when it is not.

But even then, when the child has become an adult and is contributing to society in a meaningful way, parents refuse to let go.  They make demands that their child continue to be in their life, to continue the traditions they raised the child in, and in turn demand that the child care for the adults.  All in all, throughout the process of this lifetime, there are conditions that are demanded of the child to coerce and manipulate the child into becoming what is deemed “appropriate” to the parents’ standards.

If that child should balk at doing what it is instructed, if the child should become the “black sheep” by running off and doing his or her own “thing”, then see indeed how conditional that love truly is.  But how else is a child going to become a contributor to the society if one does not force it into the society’s patterns of behavior?  Interesting question, yes?  How can the adult raising the child respect the child and all that the child is – potentials, intelligence, personality, gifts – without crushing the child in the process of taming that child to society’s standards.

Let’s examine a romantic love relationship.  You have individual A and you have individual B.  They meet, get to know each other, and decide they want their connection to get further entwined.  But A has emotional baggage from A’s life and B has emotional baggage from B’s life and that does not always work together – exactly the opposite in some cases.  So what to do?  Disengage and move away from each other?  Many people will do just that and others will stay put.  What is the correct action to take?  Well, that depends on each person.

Love is a complex emotion for humans because of the conditions each puts upon love.  Some feel they are giving a gift to the other person and if B does not treat A’s love as the end of all there is then A feels neglected and hurtful.  B feels that having told A that B loves A in the past means B does not have to repeat it multiple times every day.  A’s feelings are hurt because B does not do what A wants B to do.  B feels disrespected because A does not believe B loves A.

So messy.  And so unnecessary.  A is projecting A’s issues onto B and B is projecting B’s issues onto A.

To truly love anyone, the individual must love his or her self.  And to love anyone else unconditionally you must love yourself unconditionally.  But how often is that a reality?  How often do you judge yourself harshly for something you did?  How often do you wish you had done X instead of Y?  How often do you berate yourself for something nonsensical that you perceive as being so important?

Until you can accept yourself unconditionally you will not be able to accept anyone else unconditionally; you will continue to project your wounds and weaknesses onto every interaction you have with your loved ones until you rip the love you have for that person to bits.

Now that we have probably answered your question in a way you were not expecting, let us tell you that it is possible to heal yourself and to learn to love yourself unconditionally.  This is the one love affair that you should never stop working on your entire life – the one with yourself.

As you work on this relationship with yourself, you will find the warts and the baggage and the negative emotions and past history within yourself that you have buried away.  And you will heal yourself of that baggage and thus release yourself from the chains of judgement and disrespect, possibly of self-hatred and self-despising.\

Along the way you will encounter individuals to love – for that is part of the human process.  And this love will take many forms – love for family members, love for friends, love for lovers.  And you can work to share this love with those others while constantly being alert and sensitive to the wounds ever present within you.  Why?  So that you don’t project your wounds onto the other person and their actions and choices.

This is where respect for Free Will comes into play.  If you don’t acknowledge that each individual has the right to make their free will choices then you will constantly be trying to force that person to live within a box of your own making, created by you out of judgement.  When you acknowledge that your free will is equal to the other person exercising his or her free will then you have taken a step forward.

Why?  Because unconditional love exists when others make free will choices that may negatively affect you or your life.  A loves B, but B decides to take B’s savings and go hiking through the Amazon for a year.  Maybe B has been telling A that this is B’s heart’s desire but A feels that paying the bills is more important.  B goes anyway, leaving A to deal with the aftermath.

If A loved B unconditionally then A would acknowledge B’s right to do the trip to the Amazon. A would also recognize A’s right to make free will choices that are in A’s highest and best good.  A would not bad mouth B’s decisions but would instead live their life making choices based upon that unconditional love and not out of hurt, spite, pain, remorse, anger, etc.  So when B comes back – now what?  If B loves A unconditionally then B contacts A to see where A is to discover the changes A made and if A and B are both willing to continue in a love relationship.

Many people would call B’s actions selfish and immature; they would say A was hard suffering and deserved to have someone “better” in A’s life.  But if people saw the situation framed in unconditional love, then they would understand that all is perfect.  Love is not a commodity to be parsed out sparingly, with a high price tag.  Love is the emotion that makes human life possible and when it is shared unconditionally and unstintingly then each person will live their life in accordance with his or her highest and best good, regardless of how it affects others.

Warning – the various societies around the planet are not accepting of this type of behavior, so regardless of whether A can love B unconditionally is liable to strike terror into the collective consciousness of that society which will then work unilaterally to destroy any concept of unconditional love.

But – that’s the challenge, isn’t it?  Every time, when you the individual stretch the boundaries of your societal norms those around you react on an unconscious level.  But that does not mean you stop – it means you keep pushing forward – if the choices are in your highest and best good they will happen easily and effortlessly.

Human love is complex because humans make it complex.  Unconditional love is very simple, but difficult to attain.  It is not meant to be impossible, though.

You are loved, at all times, unconditionally.  Blessings to you.

Friendship and Self Respect

Greetings Beloved Ones.

Friendship is such an important construct for humans.  As you are born into a family, picked for various reasons by your Higher Self, as you grow through your life you will find people you will take to your heart and call them various terms defining your friendship.

Just as with your family members, these individuals will have ample opportunity to hurt your feelings and your heart.  They will also bring many moments of joy and happiness to you, if you allow it.  If you are blessed to have someone come into your life and your heart you must always remember that this person is a spiritual being on their own path, and thus they have their own lessons to learn, have the right to make their Free Will Choices, and whatever they choose to do has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them.

As you grow in your life you develop friends from different locations – work, hobbies, travel – and they add to different parts of you and help you grow and round out your world viewpoint.  This is good.  No one is an island and if you prevent yourself from learning about the reality you live in, that will hamper you from growing and developing in your life plan.

We angelics are always happy for you when you find that individual who you add to your tribe to love, and happier when that relationship stays positive.  Unfortunately, just as you have disagreements with your family members, so too will you disagree with your friends.  This does not mean that the friendship is over, however, what happens is entirely up to free will – yours and the others.

There is nothing wrong with enjoying and loving someone.  But when one takes in another person’s issues it is detrimental to oneself – and can throw one off of one’s healing path.  All too often, in pain and sadness, humans reach out to others to solve their problems, instead of looking inside and reaching for their higher self and their guides to help them.  Each person is responsible for their own healing and growth and when you give your power over to someone else, you will stagnate instead of grow.

Indeed, one should really focus on living in the moment and enjoying the moment while respecting and loving oneself.  Honor that which you are growing through as a step in your path just as you honor others living this challenging life known as being human.  Love yourself and love those around you, giving the respect to each other that each has the free will choice to make whatever decision one chooses – regardless of any label others may place upon that choice.

Love is so much more than the narrow definition humans give it.  One definition of Love that we would like you to embrace and enact in your life is that you have free will to make a choice or not make a choice.  Not making a choice is still a choice, but making active choices instead of passive choices will help you develop your sense of Will over time.  Once your sense of Will is developed you will be less likely to fall complacently into line with those who may not have your highest and best good in their intentions.

And that is truly what friendship is about – spending time with others who accept you and respect that your highest and best good is equally as important as theirs.  If you are spending time with someone who does not respect your highest and best good, then it may be time to meditate on the relationship and see what is holding your friendship in place.  Is there a lesson that needs to be learned and healed?  Do you stay friends because of stagnation or fear?  Even family members eventually leave the home environment and begin the process of living on their own, separate from each other.  If you have someone in your life who has expectations of what you should do for them or their life, this may be a prompt for candid self examination.

Self examination can be a difficult process for it requires honesty and the ability to look truthfully at situations.  We angelics are here for you, now and always, and love you as you are and are always surrounding you with love.  Even if you walked away from all you know, we will always be with you.  You are never alone and we want you to know that.  Just as you are reading this, we are surrounding you with love and joy.  Life is filled with difficult decisions for humans, but we want you to know that you should never stay in any relationship because you are afraid of being alone.  We are with you always, your personal posse that will never leave you, so be honest and truthful in your self examination so you can grow best from it.

We are with you always, beloved ones, and that is something you can count on.  Listen for us, feel for us, for we are always reaching out to you with Love, especially when you are in a peaceful place and can hear us better.

Remember, Love is all there IS, and You Are Loved, You Are Love, and You Love.  Say it to yourself when you are feeling scared and lonely and you will realize the Truth in that.

“I Am Loved, I Am Love, I Love.”

Find strength in the knowledge that we love you and are always with you.

Blessings to you this day of our Creator.
