Knowledge and Wisdom lead to Trust

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

There are many instances of emotional pain that one lives while in human form.  Starting from a small child until the day you pass, you have many opportunities to experience situations that hurt your feelings in a myriad of ways.  Taking the pain you feel in these situations (instead of focusing on the pain) and allowing your perspective to shift to one of knowledge is very important, and one you may not have learned from your parents while growing up.

When you are a child, you do not have the emotional maturity to understand that people make mistakes and sometimes those mistakes lead to others’ feelings being hurt.  As you experience yourself making the same type of mistake and thus you have the opportunity to develop Wisdom.

We acknowledge the pain you felt during the experience and We tried to support you as best possible, and as appropriate.  Eventually you will experience situations where you hurt others’ feelings instead of yours being the hurt feelings.  Would it not be more conducive to your life to be able to look at a situation from a perspective where you can admit everyone is human, no one is perfect, and thus everyone can and will make mistakes that hurt others.  Knowledge comes from being able to look at experiences where you have experienced pain and acknowledge that your position, your side of the situation is not the only one, and you make an effort to understand the other person’s position.

When you allow that other humans have the same right as you do to have hurt feelings and act upon those hurt feelings, you can then develop compassion for them.  You do not have to allow others to hurt you repeatedly just because you can understand their position or mindset.  You are always responsible for your life and you are the one who makes your Free Will choices.

Being a ‘doormat’ for someone else to abuse emotionally, mentally, or physically is not a position We would choose for you to experience, but We cannot stop you if this is your choice.  Allowing someone to abuse you, even if you see their perspective, is not healthy for you.  The goal is to recognize with compassion that someone else may be hurting or they may not have the emotional maturity to understand that their behavior hurts others and then take appropriate steps to take care of yourself, physically, mentally, and emotionally.

A calm (if possible) conversation with the individual who hurt your feelings to ask them why they did the actions that hurt you is an excellent way to start.  That person may already regret what he/she did and is only looking out for a way to express their apology to you.  This is the ‘best case scenario’ and will allow you to both express your feelings and the mindset you each had when entering into the situation to begin with.  Sharing can lead to mutual respect and a commitment to act differently if and when a similar situation arises.

Often the best case scenario is not the one that is experienced.  Many humans choose to be reactionary and to blame others’ when the person shares that he or she had hurt their feelings.  It is best to recognize that this person is emotionally immature, either because they were raised in this manner and not taught to grow this aspect of themselves, or because they choose to stay this way instead of maturing for whatever purpose they feel benefits them.

It is also a sad fact that many people are unable to find the joy in being human, and develop behavioral patterns that are unhealthy to themselves and those around them. This is where the Knowledge you have gained about the person becomes Wisdom as you apply it to your interactions with this person.  Just as you would look at a situation where you were the adult caring for a child and being responsible for keeping them safe, you should look at the interactions you have with people who hurt your feelings and recognize how you can keep yourself safe.

As you grow and develop your own emotional maturity, others’ opinions and thoughts will have minimal to no impact upon you, as you have become and individual who loves yourself and takes care of yourself in a healthy way, regardless of others’ whims and behaviors.  Scientists perform test after test to verify that the results will be the same and this is considered to be logical. They do the scientific test and the result is the same when the same situation is repeated.

You can do the same application of logic towards your emotional health and welfare.  You step back and analyze the person’s behavior and you take appropriate steps to protect yourself.

An example.  You have a friend who is fun to go out with, but once she has consumed a few glasses of wine, her behavior changes and she becomes rude to those around her.  She lashes out at her friends and says hurtful things which ruins the evening for everyone. The next day she says it was ‘the wine’ talking and that she did not mean what she said.

The next time you have an interaction with her and she drinks, what you observe will provide you with Knowledge about her behavior.  If her behavior is the same, then you have gained in Knowledge that your friend chooses to drink alcohol even though she knows she says hurtful things to others when she drinks.  This is Knowledge in action.  If the person (Y) drinks (X) and the behavior is always (C) then Y+X=C.  If you remove X and the person behaves in a manner consistent with Y, then you know her ugly words and actions come from her taking in X.

The Wise thing for you to do now and in the future if you continue to want to associate with her is to avoid situations where she has access to alcoholic beverages, or the social situations take place alcohol is not present.  Thus no one is subjected to her ugliness and rudeness because she has not drank.  She has refused to take responsibility for her behavior and so now you create the environment that will protect you.

This is a simple situation.  We realize that the human experience can and will throw things more complex your way; if you remember this situation and apply the X and the Y and the Z to your situation, it will help remove emotions from the situation and allow you to examine what took place, thus you will gain Knowledge.  Wisdom is the act of applying your Knowledge to situations.  Individual personalities will vary as will backgrounds, but when you use Knowledge to build your life you can eliminate unnecessary situations that hurt your feelings.

We know, if only life were this simple.  The most significant part of all interactions between two people is whether you have matured emotionally.  Emotional Maturity is similar to physical maturity.  As you grow older physically, your body develops from that of a baby to an adult. At the same time, your emotional capacity and understanding should grow from that of a baby to an adult.  As you grow emotionally and develop Knowledge and Wisdom along the way, you will discover Trust.

Many situations you will have zero control over in your life.  As a child you are subject to the vagaries of your parents. You cannot stop them from their chosen actions, but you can learn from them.  As you become an adult, you then experience your own life situations which provide you with Knowledge and Wisdom.  Knowledge and Wisdom allows you to understand that all things take place as lessons to help you grow, for that is the True purpose behind your human existence.

You may be wracked with regret and shame for your past actions, but it is up to you to review those situations with the eye of Knowledge.  Put your understanding of X+Y=Z into reviewing your past and develop your Knowledge of Self.  Use Wisdom to accept your past behaviors where you hurt others, and allow yourself to see who truly you were in that part of your life.  You are the only person responsible for your actions and non-actions. Wisdom will allow you to use those past situations of shame and regret to grow emotionally in new ways. Remove your feelings from the situations and look clinically at what you have done and why you did them.

Knowledge will also lead you to determine what behaviors you currently exhibit that are hurting those around you. No human is perfect, and as a result of that imperfection all humans hurt other people’s feelings.  Review each incident as the scientist who can say
X +Y+ Z. Wisdom will help you accept those current behaviors and assist you with changing them to where you don’t hurt others.

You can, however, choose to stay stuck in the adolescent phase and not take responsibility for your actions and how you hurt others.  This too, is a choice you have the ability to make. We Angelics will still Love you.  Those around you may not, but We will always Love you and We respect your Free Will choices.

When you review past situations where your feelings were hurt, Beloved Ones, for that is what emotional maturity will help you do, and you look at these experiences from the perspective that what the person did had nothing to do with you, and that their behavior is the result of their Free Will choices, then that perspective will shift to Trust.  Trust occurs when you realize that all things happen for a reason, even if you cannot see the reason clearly, at that point in time or even at all.

Many things are taken into consideration by the Creator when your Life Plan is reviewed. Every experience you will ever have has already been seen by the Creator as well as every choice you could ever make.  When you realize that this is So, then you can develop your Trust that there is nothing that falls outside of the Plan.

For those individuals who say, “It is God’s Will that X happened” to sooth over a negative situation, We Angelics say to you the Creator reviewed all that can happen and your life experience was approved.  The Creator does not prevent anyone from hurt or pain because then a major growth impetus would be removed and stagnation would occur.  The better way to say it is, “The Creator approved your experiences to happen”.

Part of each experience is an opportunity for you to learn to love yourself and to value yourself.  While not every scenario is in your control, how you react to it is.  How you react and how you is always your Free Will.  Now it is up to you to use your Free Will and decide how you are going to live your life which is the way it is because your choices from your experiences.

It is never too late to grow.  We Angelics are here, and We will support you always.  We Love you Unconditionally for We know the bright, loving being that you are when you are in True Form and We see the experiences you have here on the Earth Plane.  You are Loved and Valued even when you don’t Love and Value yourself.

Blessings to you, Beloved Ones.

When the Truth Escapes You

Greetings Beloved Ones,

Today is a beautiful day here in the adventure of your life!  We Angelics can only watch in wonder as humans live their day to day lives, learning and growing in your world, becoming for a short time, a Presence all unto yourself until the time you return to Spirit.

Humans have a difficult time with the Separation from Spirit and because of the nature of your adventure here on the Earth Plane, you are made to forget the First Truth – that you are a Spiritual Presence and that this experience is a blink of the eye and soon you will be back with Us, back to where you Belong.

We want to tell you that despair and sickness and illness are mighty weights upon the shoulders of humans, but it is part of being human.  To avoid death at all costs is not possible regardless of what improvements your science has.  Everyone returns to Spirit and it is not a bad thing, for you are returning to a place of Love where you belong and are Loved Unconditionally.

But this is why the First Truth exists – because if you knew where you came from with absolute certainty you would never be able to have the journey you are having there.  In the Beginning, when the Creator made your world and made the first of humanity the First Truth was not put into place.  Those who came down went through the Separation process, but remembering who they were and where they came from was a terrible burden, for they could not feel the Love as humans.  Many returned to Spirit after just a short time, so the First Truth was put into place to allow the Spiritual Presences there to have their adventure, their experiences.

There area number of Truths that exist about your reality that you don’t know at this time. And as with the First Truth, they were put into place for a reason.  But there is a Truth that should be obvious to all when you gaze around your planet.

The Creator LOVES Diversity.  The Creator made thousands of different plants and animals, the same but different.  They serve purposes and have their time there on the planet, but there are so many different types of animals and plants because the Creator LOVES Diversity.  If everything was the same there would not be anything new or different to experience.

Such as it is with the Human Race.  The basics are all the same, but there are small differences because the Creator LOVES Diversity.  Cultures and Societies have risen and fallen during the history of the Earth Plane.  Some based upon beliefs and some based upon wealth and some based upon pigmentation.

The Creator Loves Each Human Absolutely and Completely.  The Creator will not tell you how to live the short life you have on this planet for the Creator has seen every nuance of every experience and decision you could make there.  Every lifetime was reviewed completely prior to the Creator’s approval to become human.  Regardless of the actions taken, regardless of the pain inflicted, regardless of what your human religions have labeled as “sin” to attempt to corral humans into particular behaviors the Creator Loves Each Human Absolutely and Completely.

We try to help you feel the Love that you have Separated from temporarily, to sustain you and give you strength, to help you realize you are not alone and that you are LOVED.  But much beyond that We cannot interfere with your experiences there.  Please know that each of you has a team working with you, supporting you, loving you unconditionally and you are NEVER ALONE.

The simple Truth of your existence is to experience reality without the Love you feel when you are back with Us, back with Spirit.  There is no judgement placed upon what you do on the Earth plane, though there is hope that you learn and grow.

But it is easy for you to not look within, to not look to the Love and Support that flows through you daily.  It is easy for you to forget that diversity is the desire of the Creator. That each human is loved unconditionally.  That you all come from the same place, are truly not separated from each other on the planet, and that your life is an adventure – not a punishment.

So when the Truth escapes you, remember to stop.  Stop and wait and listen – for the Truth exists all around you and it is within you, always ready to be tapped into.

We are here to support you, Beloved Ones!  We cannot tell you enough that you are Loved, so every day, in some way, We are going to reach out to you to help you remember the Love that Created you and the Love that you will return to.

Blessings to you.

Where Love exists, Fear cannot

Greetings, Beloved Ones,

I want to address something that has come up quite a bit lately.  We Angelics are ever so happy when our Beloved Ones take a step on their personal healing path, and We are ever so happy when You take a step on your Life Path.  We know these things bring you Joy and Happiness and Satisfaction and We know this adds to your overall well-being.

We Angelics all come from the Creator; the Creator made each of us very similar, but different.  We each have a specialty to assist humans and other beings from the Creator and We love to work together.  We love nothing better than to meld our energy together to work as in Unity to help those We Love heal, grow, and develop.

We are happy when you call upon one of Us, or many of Us, or ALL of US for assistance!  We know that humans develop feelings of kinship with one or another of the Families as your Blueprints are made to do so, but let Us clarify something for you.  We feel Love – a deep, profound Love for all of you.  We do not have the capacity to be jealous or spiteful or resentful if you choose to call upon one or the other of Us.  We are just delighted when you DO call upon Us for assistance so that We can help as best We can.

Many times your human culture has twisted and warped ideas about who the Angelics are; sometimes it is because humans are so prone to anthropomorphism.  Please understand – this does not anger us either for We are not capable of that emotion either.  We are energy beings designed by the Creator to do many things, and one of those things is to Love you unconditionally.

We wish you would take that approach to yourselves – you are each lovable, wonderful beings of Light in human form and yet instead of seeing your similarities you focus on the differences between you.  Instead of seeing the differences and diversities as blessings that add to the whole, humans use them to separate and slander each other.  This is your choice, of course, as you have Free Will during your human lifetime, but We would encourage you to instead look for the Love Spark within each fellow human you encounter.

Love grows stronger and spreads more each time it is shared.  Take a moment and smile at someone as you pass by them.  Greet someone with happiness instead of projecting your overall dissatisfaction to the world.  Learn to be happy just by yourself, learn to be content with what you have, and learn to share the Love, Joy, and Happiness that is inherent within your core being.  These things will help others during their day as well as help you grow and expand your awareness of self and the Universe.

Being One with the Creator does not mean exclusively during meditation time.  You must walk what you learn, what you know, what you believe if you truly wish to grow and expand your vibration.  For Spiritual Growth and Harmony you must work every day to see the true world around you and not just the world projected by those who exist in Fear.  Fear lies to all who listen and Fear will tell you that you are nothing, that you are not worth anything, and that you are better off dead.  These are lies – you are here for an experience because you are Loved.  Chosen to be on the earth plane so that you can grow through all the things that a human can experience – positive and negative alike.

So yes, you are worthy!

You are LOVED!

You are not alone – We are here with you every moment of every day.

We Love YOU just as you are and for ALL that you ARE!

Remember this the next time you look at someone and your insecurity whispers in your ear, telling you that she is better than you, that he is smarter than you, that they are more capable than you – whatever triggers the Fear activates within you to make you feel LESS.

Gather those thoughts in your hands and look at them closely!  They are LIES – they are not the truth, but you have put so much energy into them all your life that it will take a few moments like this to release those fears and replace them with loving thoughts for yourself.

You are Loved by the Angelics and the Creator!  Why would you compare yourself to anyone else?  Each human is equally loved with a love that is absolute, incomparable, and equal to nothing else.  Embrace the idea of your worthiness, embrace your lovableness, embrace that you are exactly as you were designed to be and soak up the Love of the Creator.

Where Love exists, Fear cannot.  Don’t place your energy in the column for Fear – use the whole page for Love.  And the next page.  And the next.  For you ARE LOVED!

We are here with you, Beloved Ones.  Take the Love that is offered to you and GROW!

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.

Accept Your Grace

Greetings Beloved Ones.

Today’s message is about you and how you treat others.  Sometimes, when you are having a bad day, or are scared, or are threatened, or just in a certain place in your life you don’t realize how you treat those in your life.

You control whether someone is in your life.  Let’s take an example of someone who you have in your life, but your relationship is uncomfortable, maybe drama-ridden.  It may be that you weigh the positives and the negatives and feel that the positives are worth someone in your life.  If that is the case, it is your responsibility to accept that person entirely as you have decided to have them in your life, warts and all.  You do not have the right to criticize that person for their choices or for their career or for their friends or for whatever reason you criticize them.  You accept them as they are, with love, knowing that they are doing the best they can do on any given day – just as you are doing the best you can on any given day.

Let’s look inside for a moment.  Look deep inside you and you will find a complex, emotional person who really has little control on the things that happen in your life.  You can only control how you react.  So if you are having a bad day and your 5 year old knocks over the glass with milk in it, do you really feel it is a loving thing to do to scream at them, spank them or put them in the corner, and then blame them for the rest of the night for an accident?  Even if it was on purpose, this is a spiritual being who is still learning to adjust to being in a human body after only 5 years here.  How many years have you been in your body?

We angelics love you – completely and without reservation.  Regardless of your behavior or your choices or your actions we will always love you and we accept you as is.  We want you to look at your definition of love and acceptance and see where you stand.  No, we don’t ask humans to love as we do, but we do ask you to stretch yourself, to grow in Light, and to seek Love instead of conflict.

Many days you ask us for help, for guidance, for assistance.  At those times, we reach out to you, to continuously send you messages of love and hope and help.  Sometimes you may hear us in some fashion and other times you do not.  REMEMBER – WE ARE ALWAYS WITH YOU.  So if you are in a place where you cannot hear or feel us, remember you are loved and accepted by us and we will always be here to support you.

Back to those who are in your life.  Only you can make a determination of whether any person needs to be present in your life.  If someone is toxic and hurtful, you have the right to make the changes to remove that person from your life.  If you are in a situation where you are being hurt or those you love are being hurt, you have the right to do what you can to change that situation.  Just remember – acting impulsively is acting out on your feelings.  Reacting is secondary to analyzing.  Humans have an amazing bandwidth of emotions second to none in the universe.  Sometimes you have a hard time understanding what you are feeling much less controlling your actions in response to those emotions.

We ask you to step back and analyze the situation before acting impulsively.  Why, you ask?  Because when you act impulsively you are not looking at the spiritual being in the body you are reacting to an emotion that body caused you to feel.

Let’s look at an example.  Remember back in time to a place where you were either in school or work and the person in charge of you – teacher or supervisor – belittled you, made fun of your work, was derogatory of your efforts.  Some people would strike out physically in anger in response.  Again, not a best action to choose.  Others will stuff all their hurt emotions inside and ignore it.  That too is not a good idea.  Never suppress emotions as that causes dis-ease and other issues to manifest on the physical level.  It may be because of circumstances that you never get to have an emotionally satisfying response to this person, but there are ways you can process the incident and move forward by using what gifts that came with you into this world.

Who knows what kind of day this person is having.  You don’t know what kind of life they have either.  Stepping back and not taking personally what anyone else says to you or about you is always the first step.  Don’t give your power away – not to strangers, not to friends, not to loved ones.  YOU are the master of your own destiny and you need to keep your own power within your energy fields.

So, look at the source of the situation and step back and say to yourself – I respect you as a spiritual being locked into a human form.  I have difficulties with this some days and I respect that you may be having difficulties with it right now.  I am me and you are you and together we are both on the same journey back to the Creator.  Then, ask your angels and guardians to work with that person’s angels and guardians and surround them with Light.  Ask for that person to be permeated with Love and ask for them to receive that which is needed for their highest and best good.  And wish them well on their path.  Don’t make statements like you hope they get hit by a car and die because that kind of energy you send with that statement will only come back to you as karma.

Yes, it can be excruciatingly difficult to send Love to someone who is cruel and ugly to you, but part of each person’s path is to grow beyond the perceived limitations of their life.  When you can truly SEE that it truly is not about you – how can it be?  They don’t know you! – then you don’t waste your energy on feeding back into that negative energy spiral the person has around them.

Know that the person’s angels and guides are trying to help them right at that second, just as yours are helping you every minute of every day.  “There but for the grace of God I go” is a powerful statement that we wish more people would incorporate into their lives.  Because truly, on any given day it is the Grace you have accepted into your life that keeps you moving forward.

Accept your Grace from God, know that you are Loved and Blessed regardless of how your day is going, and share that Love with those you encounter.  You don’t have to be perfect at it, but as you practice this it will get easier.  And think how wonderful it will be when everyone is practicing this belief and our world transforms around us.

There, but for the Grace of God, go I.

You are loved, Beloved Ones, and you are never alone.
