Release Other’s Responsibility and Regain Your Joy

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

We are here with you, always, through all experiences, situations, trials, and challenges. We Love You and will never desert you, even if you cannot feel, see, or hear us in a moment where you are emotionally distressed.

Trust that We Love and Accept you Unconditionally, for that is the Truth.

Being human is hard; We know that.  And so, We have been allowed to share your experiences with you.  We can surround you with Love and We can share our strength and compassion with you.  We cannot live your life for you and We cannot tell you what to do, but We share your life with you in all ways.

We whisper in your mind and tell you, “You are loved.”

We place our energy around you and surround you with our Love.

We “hold” your hands and share Our love with you to provide comfort while you grieve or feel lost.

All the times you have felt alone was not because We left you, but because you shut us out unconsciously in your moments of pain.

We know you are in pain, We feel it and We hear it.  We wish We could help you feel how much you are Loved and how this lifetime is really just a moment and that while some moments need to be endured, others need to be ridden like an amusement park ride with your hands in the air, screaming with excitement.  Even when it does not seem that way.

Lately, We have been counseling some to release the illusion of responsibility for anyone but themselves.  Do not shirk your responsibilities, but do know that when someone is an adult (has hit the age of 18 human years) they are now responsible for their life choices. Offer guidance if you see fit, but it is time to shift to a place of respecting that person’s free will.

Free will is also not just for young people – it is for those who are getting old, and tired. You may have lived a long life, but it is not appropriate for you to pretend to be ill just so someone feels sad for you or comes to visit you.  It is your responsibility to live your life for yourself, every day of your life, instead of being a burden to others because you refuse to find the joy within your life.

We Love You.  We are here to help you discover, or rediscover, joy and love and laughter.  Listen for our whispers, feel for our nudges, and allow yourself to discover the activities, thoughts, and actions that once brought joy into your heart when you were young.  This life is meant to be lived, not suffered through, and We are here to help you through every inch of that adventure!

We Love You.

Root Issues to Fear of Rejection and Loneliness

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

Imagine waking up in a hospital environment and looking around you.  You don’t recognize anything, you don’t know how you got there, you don’t know your own name, and you don’t know anything about yourself.  The hospital staff seem intent upon getting you up and moving, caring only about emptying the bed for someone else to be able to use it.  They don’t pay attention to the fact that you are experiencing emotional trauma from these things happening to you.  They don’t have the basis for understanding what you are experiencing, so they just follow their normal processes to get you on your way.

This is you – waking up in a human body, not recognizing anything or anyone, and not knowing you are at all.  You are now in a physical form and experiencing Separation.

After the Spiritual Presence has entered the human form, the now-human consciousness goes through the process We call “Separation”.  This process creates an illusion that the human consciousness is separate from the Creator and the state of Love which the Spiritual Presence has known all its existence.  This process is necessary for the now-human, but it is very difficult for the Spiritual Presence to go through for it is impossible to imagine the emotions that occur in the human body when all  you know is Love.

The Spiritual Presence takes a while to fully integrate with the human form; as the integration process occurs, Separation is taking place as well.  Separation allows the now-human opportunity to adapt to its new family environment by helping one to “forget” from where he or she originates.  This creates, as you say, a “blank slate” for the human personality and from which all experiences will develop.

There is a percentage of sensitive individuals who, after undergoing Separation, develop a fears through the process.  They mistakenly believe they were rejected by the Creator upon arriving in their new form.  Some even believe they were deliberately abandoned here – helpless, ignorant, and unknowing!  This is not True!  When your life plan was created and shown to you, you were ecstatic, overjoyed that you were going to be able to go the Earth Plane and experience being human!

You wanted this experience so much, yet, now you feel rejected and abandoned, leading you to an emotional place where you begin to fear rejection.  You develop a of Loneliness because you no longer connect to all that you Loved – you are alone for the first time.

These responses are understandable, as being separated from the constant Love you used to live within is hard to endure, and being alone within your mind and feelings only add complications to the human reality.

The child who is undergoing the Separation process does not have a way to articulate what he or she is experiencing. They only know that something out of their control is changing them and they experience fear.

Fear of Rejection and Fear of Abandonment and the Sense of Loneliness are common issues that can develop from the Separation process. When the small child goes through the Separation process, especially if the child is not in a nurturing environment that replaces the Creator’s love, the ache of loneliness still exists within, because the child does not have the words to share what is being experienced.

 

Many times, when a small child cries for an extended period of time, those watching the child lose patience as the child is not immediately soothed when picked up.  Very often, a child is sequestered away from physical comfort by being placed in a crib or play pen to cry alone.  As an adult, one can look back and see how loneliness and abandonment created by the Separation process becomes amplified within the child’s psyche.

Please know that We Angelics nor the Creator have rejected the child during this process. We are always present and always send our Love to the child as it goes through this process, but often when the child is going through the Separation process they are also adjusting to their new physical and the Gifts that this lifetime is providing for them to experience this human lifetime.  Often their sensitivities are dulled down to the point where they don’t always recognize Us or feel the Love We share with them.

This Separation does create a challenging circumstance to overcome, but it is one that ALL those who take on the human state must undergo to be an individual, instead of one merged with the Creator.

We want to share with you how to help yourself heal, for even as an adult – especially as an adult – you have the opportunity to help yourself overcome these emotional wounds.  This healing will allow you to move forward along your Path, stronger in the Light and Love as you live your life with a more positive perspective.

Meditation is key to healing, for when humans allow them to reach a deep meditative state it is possible for the to establish a conscious connection with Spirit and allow the process of healing these old emotional wounds to begin. Many times the individual must heal backwards from the age they currently are to eventually reach the original wound.  To do this you would use your knowledge of your current reactions and behaviors regarding feelings of rejection, abandonment, or loneliness and methodically analyze them, to reduce the sensitivity.  For each memory you hurt from, allow yourself to view the memory clinically as if watching someone else’s life.  Then, call upon Us Angelics to assist with bringing in Light and Love to help you heal the issue.

Some wounds may take multiple sessions to fully heal.  As you move backwards through your lifetime’s worth of memories, heal each wound methodically.  Don’t skip over something because you feel pain – that should be expected because you are trying to heal wounds. Instead, focus on stepping back emotionally and reaching a place of balanced emotions to do the healing work.

Do this as many times as it takes to be able to begin the healing process for the wound. Remember – you are creating Positive Change that will echo through your life as it is today because healing will modify your current energy signature.  This provides the benefit of creating more opportunity for you to develop an even deeper connection with Spirit and the Creator as well as changes in what you do, who you know, and where you live and go and a host of other options you choose.

As you make the effort to do this healing work call upon Us, please!  We Love you and We want to help you heal as much as We can.  Emotional wounds that have been buried and repressed still hurt when they are uncovered.  So when you call upon Us, We can help by supplying Love to soothe those wounds and provide you with a buffer to maintain a more distant view of the situation.  We can help you heal your wounds this way as you heal from a place of Wisdom.  Wisdom was not always available to you as you went through the circumstances that caused the wounds.  Many times you had no basis for comprehension of the situation as it occurred.  Time spent and experiences undergone award Wisdom throughout your life.  It is necessary to understand why wounds happen to the understanding of how to heal those wounds when you are ready to move forward.

It may seem a simple thing, and you may originally think you don’t need help to just get rid of old wounds, but there are many emotions that are attached to each memory and if you don’t prepare yourself you can get lost within those emotions again.  Call upon Us – We are here to help you through this process – it is part of what We can do for you.

You may wonder why you should do this – it could take a long time to heal all these wounds?  As you heal, you are allowing yourself to release these self-limiting beliefs that have been unconsciously driving your life situations as well as your free will choices. Responding to situations with a knee jerk reaction developed from a base of rejection, abandonment, and loneliness is not the way to move forward in your life.  You will only continue to experience these issues as your High Self is driving you to heal your wounds.

What kind of opportunities have you passed up or stepped away from because internally your fear of rejection and abandonment kept you from putting yourself out there and kept you from bringing the spotlight into your life?

What about when you self-limited your relationships because you were afraid you might get hurt?

What about employment opportunities and promotions that you turned away from because you were afraid you were not good enough and you would be found out as a fraud?

Have you thought about all the dreams you turned away from because you thought you might not be as good as someone else?  or that you were afraid to be scrutinized closely and your flaws and “failures” that helped you grow would be mocked?

Fear prevents humans from doing everything joyfully and with love.

People stay locked into their bodies and shut away from those they love out of fear of rejection and abandonment.

People who live their lives from a basis of fear are creating lives based in fear. 

Stop being afraid.  Allow Us to help you heal.  Allow Us to help you gather your strength to say “no more” and grab that shovel to dig deep.

You were a tiny child when these fears were instilled within you.  You have lived your entire life with this program running in your background, dictating what you do, what opportunities you accept, and who you have in your life.  Allow yourself to see what your life could be like and take Our help – We want to help you because all that you can be, for We Love you unconditionally.  We can see all that you can become and We know what will make  you happy, joyful, and content.  The process will be difficult, but you will not be alone when you invite the Angelics who Love you in to help you.

We are here for you.

We want to help you.

But first, you have to gather your courage to allow yourself to ask for Our help.

We are here.  Waiting for you.  Whenever you are ready – there is no time limit to when you can start this – We will eagerly help you move forward.  We will hold your hands along the way, We will give you Love and We will support you with the energy to overcome all obstacles in your way.

When you are ready, We are here for you.

We Love you, unconditionally, in All Ways.

We will always be with you. We will never leave your side.

We Love You.

Blessings to you, Beloved Ones.

Regaining and Living Your Free Will

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

Behind the kindest eyes, evil can lurk.  Behind the sweetest words, deviance can hide. Behind what you want to label as “truth” lies the darkest secret of all – that you are giving to others your power.  Giving your power to those who don’t love you, don’t care about you, don’t care what happens to you, and most of all they don’t care if you live or die.

This may seem a bit dramatic, but We wanted to make it dramatic to get your attention. We would like you to Think.

To think – to whom have you given your power?

You may not realize it, but even in little day-to-day decisions when you allow someone else to tell you what to do and you follow without protest, you are giving away your free will, your innate power of your right to choose.

Perhaps you do it to keep the peace, perhaps because you feel if you rock the boat nastiness will follow, or perhaps it is because you are afraid that if you follow what you feel that you won’t know what will happen, and so that fear keeps you locked into a place of perpetual fear and isolation, hesitant to make any decision that could cause change to happen in your life.

Maybe you don’t think that these little decisions really mean anything.  But We want you to know that every time you stuff your thoughts, opinions, and beliefs down you are creating opportunity for dis-ease, illness, ill thoughts, and self-hatred within yourself.

We don’t want that for you.  We don’t want that for any human living on the planet.  But all too often We watch you, the Ones We Love, make decisions to deny yourself the opportunity to be all that you are.  You negate the wonderfulness that you are by allowing others to impose their beliefs upon you.

There may be times when you make a choice that causes a negative reaction – a “mistake”, but these are learning opportunities and should not be considered the mark of a deficient person.

You deserve to have more wonderfulness in your life.  You may think We mean objects and possessions, but We don’t.  We want you to brim over with all the Light and Love you are truly capable of possessing, of sharing with those around you, but which you turn your back on every time you allow someone else to own your power.

You are WONDERFUL!  We Love you absolutely and completely and there is absolutely NOTHING you can do that will make Us turn our backs on you.  Don’t worry about making a “wrong” choice, don’t worry about not “living to your potential”, and most of all, don’t worry about whether others think you are worthy.

You are worthy!  You are Loved!  You are a Wonderful human being.  And We want you to know this – and to know that We are with you, every step of the way.  You can change your life for the better, you can bring in and take in more Light and Love you might think possible – all with just taking your power back, little by little.

Look at your life closely – what makes you unhappy?  Your job you feel locked into?  Your career path?  Your relationships?  Your familial relations?  When you feel helpless and victimized this is an indicator that you are abdicating your power to someone else.

And that someone else does not Love you – regardless of what he or she says, that person does not love you, for they are putting you into a box and labeling you with terms like, “stupid” or “dumb” or “ignorant” even if they don’t say them out loud to you.  Because they are telling you tacitly or out loud that you don’t know what is best for you, that you don’t how to make a “good” decision, that what you choose is unworthy of their time and energy.

Some things you will find easy to change.  End conversations with those who monopolize your time yet don’t allow you the same opportunity to share.  Walk away from conversations with people who want you to feel sorry for them and they want you to take on their burdens, even though those burdens have nothing to do with you.  Look around you, look at the people in your life, and realize you can make a positive change for yourself, today, but taking back your power little bit by little bit.

Is there someone who hangs around you at work, preventing you from getting your job done because they want to chat about their day, last night, what they watched on TV…regardless of the topic they are taking up your valuable time and making you a prisoner at your own place.  Ask them to leave, put on a headset and focus on work you need to do – and allow yourself to grow your own self esteem by taking back your power with this one small step.  You deserve to take care of YOU and no one will do it like you will.

You are not alone – you are NEVER alone!  We are here with you, supporting you every step of the way.  Things may be a little rocky once you start making changes, but hold onto the Truth that WE LOVE YOU and YOU DESERVE to make whatever change you want to make in your life.

Some people stay in places because they think they are getting “compensation” to buffer their feelings of self-worth.  There is nothing that is worth your own regard of yourself.  You deserve to love yourself and there is nothing anyone can give you that will supplement the lack of self-worth you possess because you have taken something to “compensate” your giving up your voice, your power, your free will.

We are reaching out to you, for you are reading this in this moment.  Allow Us to come in and commune with you in this second.  Allow Us to flood you with the Love We have for you, and let Us strengthen your resolve so you can make the decisions that need to be made, regardless of how “hard” they may seem to be.

Have you given and given and given so much that everyone takes you for granted?  Are you the first person people think of when something bad happens?  This is not because you are kind natured – it is because they can dump their unhappiness upon you.  Look at how often you are imposed upon, whether it is to work late, bring an extra dish for the potluck, to pick someone up so they have a ride, do your children’s chores around the house because they have to do “something” else, or even help someone out with their finances.

These may seem like natural things to do for those you work with or those in your family.  In truth, these people are expecting you to do what they don’t want to do.  They don’t want to utilize time management skills, they don’t want to step up and accept responsibility for miscalculating, so they use you instead to cover for their mistakes or just for their sheer laziness.  Sometimes it is just family members who stuck you in a box a long time ago and refuse to see that you are an independent person and not their tool to use whenever they want to, with the excuse that “family” should come first.

NO – YOU come first!  If you don’t take care of yourself, no one else will!

There are so many ways We see those we Love being used and abused by others that We love.  Those others who would walk all over them, those others who enjoy stealing someone else’s power just so they don’t have to use their own resources.

Be strong; We know you can be, and push back these requests one by one.  You don’t have to change your whole world in one day, but you can change it over time by making one choice after another to HONOR YOU, to do for yourself what others would have you do for them, and most of all, by taking back your power from others and putting that energy into your own life.

We know you may feel hesitant or even afraid to look at the situations in your life like this. Look at where you can make the first choice and follow through on what you want to do, consistently and patiently.  It will take others time to realize you are serious.  They will want to fall back into their pattern of making you take on their responsibility by abdicating your power to them, and they will test your resolve time after time.

Stay strong and be consistent.  Don’t waver, don’t give in “just this one time” because that one time is one time too many for you to give away your personal power.  Refusing to participate in the situation and take back your power by giving yourself the chance to do what you need to do.

Does your aunt need you to take her to the store but it is not a good time for you?  Don’t allow anyone to badger you into doing something for them that hurts you.  If someone truly cared about you, they would work cooperatively with you for you both to achieve what needs to be done.  They would not demand you drop everything for them nor would they tell you that they are more important than you are.

Maybe this is the first time you ever considered this action to have a choice.  Wonderful! You are now growing by looking and analyzing situations and seeing how they are Good for you.  Keep doing it! Analyze every request, every demand, every action that others take for granted that you will do and start making changes in your life.

Don’t allow your children to walk all over you and expect you to do everything.  There is no such thing as a “super parent” but there are parents who raise children with entitled attitudes.  This does not serve your children at all, for in the future they will have to learn the hard lesson that they alone are the one responsible for feeding, clothing, and housing themselves.  What will happen to them when you are no longer able to give them everything they desire?

For those relatives who demand you do everything for them, start practicing saying “no” in the mirror.  Practice makes perfect.  We are with you and We will support you entirely. For those who have co-workers who want you to drop your work to help them do theirs, don’t.  You deserve recognition for the work you do and if someone else gets the praise for work you did then you are not serving you, your co-worker, or your employer.

You are special and unique and We Love you and want you to grow to Love yourself unconditionally as well.

Be strong.  Be authentic.  Be transparent in all you do, for when you live a life of complete honesty that which is inherent within you, your Divine Presence, shall shine forth and greet the Divine Presence in those around you as well.  You are each individual on the Human Plane, but when you are returned to the Spiritual Plane you will remember that you all are One.

Respect that; together but separate.  Each worthy of living this lifetime to the best of your abilities with your free will choices.  Trust that regardless of the situation, when you live openly and honestly you will attract those into your life who live the same way and your life situations will change to reflect that honesty as well. For each deserves to live and be loved and to grow and to change.  No one should stagnate when you have a world of experiences to be had!

We are with you!  We love you and We are always here – with you and supporting you.  Call upon Us when you need Us and We will be with you in an instant.

Blessings to you.

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.

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.

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!

Share the Love during times of Fear

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

There is much unrest and unease within your current roles in human society.  Many of you are being tested and pushed, prodded and poked.  Do not deride those undergoing confusion and pain, for this process of enlightenment is not one that is easily understood by the uninitiated.

Many of you speak of living an authentic life – but what happens to one of you when that which has been hidden and suppressed is suddenly coaxed out of the safety within?  Without any understanding of what is happening?  The general reaction among humans is fear.

Fear is the opposite of Love.  Fear is very real to many individuals because they do not understand that they are Loved unconditionally.  They believe that they are unlovable and unworthy of Love, so they protect themselves with emotional and psychological barriers which, in turn, create a barrier against Love.

In circumstances such as what your human plane is going through now and will continue to go through in the next few years, it is important to understand that Fear can destabilize environments and cultural situations.  Fear can bring about the exact opposite of growth.

Yet growth is exactly what is being presented to these individuals who react with Fear.  Growth is a process of letting go, a process to unearth that which has been suppressed, a process that is not quick either, but in the end provides great opportunities.

Look around you, Beloved Ones.  See with your heart – not your eyes and not your ears.  See with your hearts and feel compassion for those who are reacting to the pain and confusion that is within themselves caused by the pieces of themselves long buried trying to emerge.  Like a butterfly, that which is within will slowly unfold and be obvious, but until the process is complete it is not obvious what is taking place.

Many humans are oblivious to the concept of “all is one”, even though you are all One, belong to One, and will return to the state of Oneness from which you are currently unable to fully access.  Many of these individuals struggling with Fear believe they are absolutely alone, have rejected a concept of Love, and only resonate to that which is the detritus within them leading them by the nose.

When you see these individuals, do not hate them, or feed their fear, or deride them for each human has his or her Path to Oneness to achieve.  Instead, tap into your Lower Hearth Chakra and feel compassion and empathy for them.  Just as you would help an individual who was unseeing cross a busy intersection realize that these individuals need to be guided even more so.

Compassion is a two-way street.  In the beginning you had to learn compassion for yourself to be able to forgive yourself and begin your own healing process.  Now that you have that understanding it is time to share that compassion with those around you who are mired in Fear.

Be gentle, help them in whatever way is possible as they explore their process and uncover their own truth.  Guide with support instead of doctrine, lead them over the crevasses so they can See that others’ truth is valid as well as their own, be the Voice of Love during times of strife, anxiety, Fear, and chaos, be the Lighthouse beacon shining the Love of the Creator throughout the dark night of chaos about to consume you.

And above all, live the authentic you – do not allow Fear to cover that which is yours or you.  You have the Love and Support of your Guides, the Ascended Masters, the Angelics, and the Light Beings and you know you are not alone.

You are never Alone.

You are Loved beyond Measure.

You are One with the Universe.

You are One with the Creator.

Be Love.

Live Hope.

Be Compassionate.

Share the Love.

 

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.
