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.

Why am I not being aided as I requested?

Greetings Beloved Ones,

The Angelics hear your pleas for assistance when you make them and we always send you the energies of Light, Love, and Strength to help you through all situations you find yourself in so that you can choose you actions.  Many times, however, you are swaddled in pain and anger and don’t always think about the choices you make or have made.

We want to help you understand why you don’t always get your prayers answered in the manner you are requesting.

Understand that the Light Beings, the Angelics, and your Higher Self all understand completely what your blueprint for this lifetime is.  We understand the hopes, dreams, and desires that you wanted to accomplish while on the earth plane and we will never, ever go against that plan.  The Truth of the matter is simple, though it may seem complex and convoluted to you.  Every choice and non-choice you have made is a reflection of free will.  Every choice and non-choice you have made has created the life you live and has brought you to this moment in your life.

We do not see any of this as “bad”.  Bad and good are human designations and are entirely dependent upon the perspective of the individual living their human experience.  We of the Light respect your right to make any and all choices, regardless of whether it is “good” or “bad” for you.  If you choose a life filled with self-destructive choices We will honor you for it.  If you choose a life making logical and reasoned choices We will honor you for it.  If you sit and hide in your home and refuse to make any choice at all We will honor you for it.

It is not our place to judge how you live your life or the choices and non-choices you make while living it.  We will not judge you after it is over either.  This is your human experience and We Love You completely, entirely, and unconditionally.

What happens when choices or non-choices you make lead to something you designate as “bad” or “undesirable”?  We Love You and send you Light, Love, and Strength to help you do as you choose.

Unfortunately, many individuals sink into a state of emotional turbulence and reject the energy that is sent to them as they cycle down in their poo poo piles (as my Avatar calls it).  And We of the Light honor and respect the choice to reject the energy.

We will never force you to do anything because it is not Our place to do so.  This is YOUR life.  Your life is a result of Your Free Will.  No one can change your life but You.  And We provide you with the strength to do so – if you accept it, it is there.

So, below are a few guidelines to help you understand why your prayers are not always answered as you want them to be answered.

1.  Your Angelics, Light Beings, Higher Self, Guardians, etc. all work together for your Highest and Best Good in alignment with your blueprint, your life plan which was established before you were born into the body you currently reside in.

2.  Just because you are miserable does not mean the Light will do anything to alleviate the situation or make it better.  The Light honors every choice you make – including those that make you miserable or choices that allow you to stay in situations that are not in your highest and best good.
3.  You are ultimately responsible for your choices and non-choices through the Truth of Free Will and these are what determine and create the life you live and We of the Light respect that and will not interfere with your choices.
So, even though you may be consciously asking for assistance to remove or heal something, if it is not in your highest and best good for any Light Being to take action then they won’t.
Yes, you may feel that you are trying to change a situation, but it may be that you are not yet at the point you need to be for the Light to lend more substantial assistance, that you have not taken the actions necessary to trigger their help, or it may be that the lesson itself has not yet appeared or been experienced.  Many times individuals feel they have reached the “end of their rope” and “cannot take another thing”, yet that does not translate into the individual taking action to make a change in their life.  You might detest the situation you are in, you may feel hopeless or bound to a situation, but you are the only person who can make a change in your life.
Humans can definitely get caught up in their emotional state – this is one of the wonderful things about being human – the emotional state!  The Truth, however, is that sometimes humans have to go through something terrible to learn something as part of their Life Plan.  Humans will unconsciously make free will choices to ensure that the experience happens because it is written into their blueprint.  One’s Higher Self will also bring about situations and circumstances to ensure that experience so you have the opportunity to grow and learn from it.
But take heart – once the lesson has been learned options and opportunities will arise out of nowhere to assist you with making new free will choices…or non-choices.  This is our gift to you – assistance that just appears and which can change your life in an extremely short period of time.  To accept a choice and make a change in your life is your free will…to reject a choice and make a non-action and keep your life is your free will.
We know that what we have state above may make some individuals unhappy or even discontented.  Having the human experience was never meant to be easy or carefree.  Unfortunately, many individuals were raised with concepts and ideas of the way your reality is that are completely out of sync with the Truth.  We are in the process of writing a guide e-book to provide information to assist you to help yourself.  The Truths presented in the e-book will be options for you to accept or reject based off your resonance to what is presented.
Remember!  We will never tell you what to do – we Love you and honor your right to Free Will, and will be with you always!
Blessings to you, Beloved Ones.

Seeking Answers from Within

Greetings, Beloved One.

Imagine for a moment; you see a dog in a room.  Inside the room is a blanket on the floor, a dog food dish, a water bowl, a door to the outside, and a basket of toys.  The dog sits in the middle of the room and whines.  You look at the dog and ask it – are you hungry?  Are you thirsty?  Do you need to go outside?  Do you want to play?  And all the while, the dog looks at you and whines.

You see that the dog is not hurting, so you begin to work your way through the options – is it thirsty, hungry, bored, or needing to use the outdoors.  One after the other, the dog rejects each offering you make to provide succor.  You look at the dog and say “now what?” since nothing you have offered has helped and the dog comes to you and pushes its head into your hands, wanting, of all things some petting.

Humans share this basic desire for love and affection, energetically and physically, and when you don’t perceive that you are getting what you need you will act out, in some way, to satisfy the urge within you.  The urge many times does not have words or clarity – it is a feeling that drives you to “do” something.  Sometimes that something is to eat or drink or take drugs or have sex or even a combination of things that provide a visceral sensation and may seem to be giving that urge what it needs to be satisfied.

But it does not go away.  It may stop for the moment as the dog may stop whining if you feed it or let it outside, but just as the dog will come back to you again until it gets what it wants, that urge will return to you.  The next time, however, you will find it harder to satisfy and you will find yourself more frustrated than before trying to come up with some solution.

We beg you – before you go through these steps again – stop.  Instead of turning to action, instead – turn within.

Within you are the answers to everything you could ever ask for, but you have to be open to the process.  Within each human is a connection that will provide all the love you could ever ask for, all the conversation you could ever seek, and all the acceptance that you will never give to yourself.  All there, waiting for you to seek it out.

Suffering from depression or addiction?  Seek within.  Feeling rejected and lonely?  Seek within.  Feeling happy and joyous?  Seek within.  When you seek within and join with your higher self and with Spirit, you are not taking away from anything else or anyone else – you are merely rejoining with part of yourself that does not exist physically on the earth plane.

You are so much more than the physical shell you occupy.  You are so much more than the personality you exhibit.  You are so much more than the impulses and tendencies that drive your days and your nights.  And when you seek within and rejoin with your higher self and with Spirit, that urge that gnaws at you will be satisfied.

It really does not take much, Beloved Ones.  A few minutes spent daily meditating and seeking within will provide balance, grounding, and Love – things that all beings require.

So what is stopping you from doing this simple task?  Self doubt?  Frustration that your expectation of miracles does not happen the first three times you meditate?  Lack of self-love driving a wedge between you and real Love?

Look at where you are and where you would like to be.  Try meditating for five minutes daily for 22 days in a row.  Five minutes is not much time – some people spend more than twice that amount of time on the commode during their day.  Surely five minutes a day is not too much to ask to heal yourself, feel Love, and receive that which can point you on your way to true fulfillment?

We Angelics are here to help you with this as well!  You are never alone and we can always help you with nudges and reminders to do the task as well as helping you focus while you are doing it.  We are here to Love and Guide you and when you spend time communing with us, we get to share our Love with you as well.

Think about this, Beloved One, and know we are here to help you at all times, every day.  You are Loved.

Seeking the Real You Within

Blessings and greetings to you!

How many times have you started to do something – maybe something creative or even just a work project – when you were hit with the idea that someone else would do it better than you ever could?  Maybe the first time you had that idea was during your elementary science fair project…maybe it was in the art room, or the creative writing class, at piano recitals or even just cleaning house with your siblings or parents?  So often humans compare yourselves to everyone out there who you perceive as “perfect” and thus you decide you yourself are “less than”.  

We are here today to say you ARE perfect.  Maybe someone has done something you want to do and impressed you with their performance or product so much that you don’t feel you can compare with them.  It does not mean that you and that other person have different knowledge or abilities – you just think they did so what is the point of your trying?  Or, if you do try it, you sabotage yourself and the end result is not as good as it could have been if you have tried wholeheartedly.

Humans are their own worst enemy, own worst critic and we want to tell you that you need to re-evaluate these toxic thoughts and beliefs!  Change your thinking, change your perspective, and you will change your world!  Remember – you create your own reality!  Figure out what means the most to you, figure out what resonates with the Light within you, and you will discover the path that will change your world.

All knowledge and all information that exists in this world is part of the collective intelligence that belongs to the Creator.  No one has ever created an idea or discovered anything because it was already created and has never been lost.  It is available to EVERYONE and it is the right of everyone to access that information and use it appropriately in their lifetime.

Throughout humanity leaders arise.  Many of these individuals appear charismatic, verbally deft, and project a sense of authority over the topic of which they speak.  Some set themselves up as gurus, critical thinkers, experts on the subject matter and will tell you that you need to do it as they say because you don’t understand the topic like they do.  Sadly, so many people fall under the spell of charisma without thinking about the ramifications of handing over their personal power to someone else, someone they don’t know at all just because that person seems to know “it” better than they themselves do.

This may be a choice, and you always have the right to make that choice, but we are telling you NOW that this does not free you from the responsibility of free will choices and that you will need to deal with that choice for some time to come.  Whether it is your parent, a teacher, a religious leader, a political leader, a sibling or a partner/spouse to whom you give your personal power to does not matter.  You are not meant to give away your personal power to anyone – it is yours and it is meant to help you grow and to shape you along your path in this lifetime.  When someone abdicates their responsibility to live their life fully there are karmic repercussions to that choice.  These will have to processed in this lifetime, when you have departed from the earth plane, and sometimes in other incarnations.

How do you give your personal power to others?  Any time you think someone is better than you at anything you are giving them a chord to your personal power and you feed them your energy.  That energy will never again feed you unless you break that chord.  Once humans start feeding from others they do not surrender that energy easily.  But once you realize and BELIEVE that you are worthy, lovable, and capable you can live consciously with your energy flowing fully around you, manifesting the life you are meant to live.

We, the angelics, do not demand that everyone be a cookie-cutter imitation of someone else.  There is no “ideal” image of what each person should be like.  One of the reasons souls incarnate on the earth plane is to experience diversity of character.  Individuality is most desired.  When one returns to the energetic state you return to the state of All That Is.  While that state of communion is blissful, one belongs to all and all belong to one – there is no individuality.  So while you may find it easier to follow someone else’s direction and “be” who they want you to be, it is your responsibility to yourself and your higher self to discover who you really are.  You are beautiful, you are wonderful, you are fun, you are creative, and you are perfect just the way YOU are.  

We want you to start practicing that belief right away.  Stop pretending in whatever way you are pretending and look at the glorious individual you are.  Love yourself.  Strip away all that is NOT you and see yourself in the Light of Love, for that is how we angelics see each of you.  Individual and Perfect.

Yes, there are those who will resist any change you want to make in your life, but you owe it to yourself to live consciously.  Align yourself with the Light that exists within you and the strength you need to make the changes will be there.  Align yourself with the Light that exists within you and you will find yourself being the person you never thought you be, the person inside that you rejected for years – maybe for your entire lifetime.  Does that mean you walk away from your responsibilities and justify that as living your life?

No, because your life will change once you align with the Light within.  Changes will occur and you will realize a life that is perfect for you and not in conflict.  Yes, some individuals may leave – or you may leave some individuals behind, but living a life true to yourself means that you are going to have to stop being what you were pretending to be, and those people who prefer the fake you are not worth having around you.

Embrace the Love within you, the Light within you, and share that with the world in whatever manner manifests itself within you.  Write that story, paint that painting, go to meetings you did not dare to go to before, make friends with that person who said what resonated within you, but scared you because they looked or acted differently than what you were taught is “correct”.  Learn about the world around you from your own perspective – not one you were conditioned to believe is the ‘only one’.

There is no one way.  For anything.  All will return to the Creator at the end and each will face his or her Higher Self.  Live the life you designed together, and revel in the joy that is YOU instead of being miserable pretending to be something that is not you.

We Love YOU and we want YOU to love yourself as much as we Love YOU.  We angelics are always here, ready to provide you with succor.

Breathe, Live, and Love.


Living in the Present Moment

Blessings to you!

All too often, we angelics here that someone is not satisfied with their current state of being.  Their gifts are not advanced enough, they don’t like their gifts, they don’t like their life circumstances, etc. While we can view the human existence from your perspective, many times we do not understand why you don’t like your life.  You created it.  Every decision you ever made has brought you to the moment you are currently living in and we find that to be perfect.  You are perfect.  Your life is perfect.  All is good.

Yet, you humans do not find it to be perfect.  Even when you have reaped what you have sown and you have achieved the success of whatever it is you attempted, you are still not happy.  This is not a criticism, this is merely a statement of discernment.  You are loved and are cared for by your higher self, your guides, your angelics, and by the Creator PLUS you have a life you have created yourself and yet you are unhappy.

By taking form and shape in the human plane, you are doing what the Creator agreed to allow you to do – create your life in the image as you see it.  Many people create lives that are filled with strife and unhappiness, mistaking pity for empathy, mistaking kindness for compassion, twisting empowerment into enslavement.  We, the angelics, now say to you – YOU are the CREATOR of YOUR LIFE.  Instead of blaming a nonsensical “god” figure for your woes, look to yourself and the patterns of behavior your have established in your life.

How many times have you heard or read about someone who was born in the ravages of poverty, yet by their will and intelligence they took themselves out of that environment and created a life of physical abundance for themselves?  Interesting, yes?  Everyone wants that, physical abundance, yes?

If so, then why do the small number of people who have that physical abundance so many yearn for continue to behave as if they are on the edge of poverty?  Always collecting more physical abundance, always trying to become “richer”, maybe even changing their physical appearance so they match the idea in their heads of beauty.  Yet, they are never happy.

Not too many poor people will say they are happy, and truly, not too many of them are, for they also have been taught to be unsatisfied with what is and to look either in the past to a time that “was” or to the future and what “may be”.  We say enough of that.

Stop the self-pity.  Stop the self-hatred.  Stop the me, me, me and the more, more more!  BE PRESENT IN THE MOMENT YOU ARE RIGHT NOW.  ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE EXACTLY AS YOU ARE IN THIS MOMENT.

And then in the next moment.  And the moment after that.  You are ripping yourself into shreds for what?  Because someone in a magazine told you that you were not pretty enough, not rich enough, not the right color, not the right shape, did not come from the “right” part of town, or that you needed to live in “that” part of town to be happy.

Stop it all.

Remember.  The Creator Loves you just as you are.  And you need to do the same thing right now.  In this moment.

So now, we want you to stop.  Roll your shoulders back – stop being hunched in front of whatever electronic equipment you have to read this message and just let your head roll to the side, then the front, then to the other side.  Allow yourself to relax all over.  Free yourself from the tension you are holding in and let it flow out of your body into the ground.

As you feel the tension energy flow into the ground, take a deep breath.  Then another deep breath.  Feel your lungs expanding as you breath in.  Hold that breath.  Now let it out and feel your stomach and chest compress a little with that release.

Then feel your body release as you continue to breath in deeply, hold, and then release.  Count your breaths if your mind starts to wander, but always feel yourself breathing.

Do you know what you are doing?  You are breathing.  In and out.  And you know what?  You are doing it exactly as every other human on this planet is doing it.  No one is doing it better or more gloriously than you.  It does not matter how much money is in their bank account, what shoes are in their closet, what car they drive or what job they have.  At the basic level EVERYONE breathes in the same way.  In and out.  

This is your success of the moment and don’t you dare denigrate this!  THIS IS IMPORTANT.  If you are not breathing you are not going to be alive!  This practice of breathing will allow you to do everything else you are meant to do on this planet!

So breathe…for the next ten minutes, just focus on breathing and being present while you are breathing.

We promise you – it can change your life.

The Mirror Effect

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

Have you ever watched someone behave in a manner that irked you?  Irritated you?  Make you so angry that you just wanted to rage at them about their behavior?  Maybe their behavior was self-destructive and you wanted them to care more about themselves.  Maybe they were hurting someone you cared about and you wanted them to stop hurting that person or people.  Maybe that person was being cruel to you and it hurt your feelings.

These responses to destructive behavior are considered very normal and even healthy that you want to protect others or yourself.  But what about those times when the person really did not do “much” but it put you into an emotional frenzy?  Made you felt like shaking them until they understood what they were doing wrong.  Only later, much later and with physical distance did you realize how silly your reaction was and it is quite possible you might have even been so ashamed of your reaction that you keep some distance between you and that person.

There are several reason why you may have felt that way, but one that exists in the common consciousness is called “mirroring”.  This is a situation where someone does something and you have a visceral reaction to that something because you see that “something” as something within you.  And example follows:

Someone new joins your company and you find them objectionable.  Yes, they get their work done on time and in a satisfactory manner.  No, they don’t smell or dress nasty, but your hair raises up every time you see them and your lip curls into a snarl.  The others accept this person just fine and it seems to be only you having a reaction.  

Then, one day, someone casually says in response to the statement that he seemed to be accepted quickly, “oh, he’s just like you, so it really is not unusual that we accepted him.”  But, you protest, that person is careless of others feelings.  He can be downright inconsiderate of others at times too!  You are nothing like that – how can you say that they are alike?

The person smiles sadly and says, “again – he is just like you.  You might want to look in the mirror some day at how you treat people if you don’t like being treated this way.”

Wow.  Does that sting a little?  Yes, you can have moments where someone tells you that you are just like your mother, or father, or sibling and that stings because most people don’t want to think of themselves as a clone of their parent, but for a total stranger who is a JERK to be told to your face that he is just like you?  Outrageous!

But, the wise person waits.  And watches.  And observes the interactions of this person with others.  Maybe you see that yes, this person is careless of others feelings and maybe he IS inconsiderate at times, but he is not a “bad” person.  He just needs to be educated on how to treat others.

The wise person also starts to examine their own behaviors to try to catch those moments when he falls into that category of careless/inconsiderate.  Maybe this wise person decides he wants to be better person that what the others think he is.  So, he begins to emulate behavior that he feels is considerate and kinder.

He stops pushing his way out of the elevator and lets all the women off first.  He tries to be polite instead of abrupt when someone stops him to ask a question.  He allows others to go first in line at the copier instead of using his rank to go first.

Then, something happens that grabs his attention.  That “new” person who irritated him to just look at him?  He does not see him any where.  He does not notice him in the office or on the elevator.  Finally, one day he stops the person who hit him with the truth and asks where that person was and you get pointed to a cube, one among many.

You go by there and you glance in and you see the person who just a month ago you wanted to strangle.  Now, you don’t have any recollection of seeing his face.  Why?  How come you don’t have that same reaction?  

The answer to this story is simple – you changed the behavior you disliked about yourself into something you did like.  Now that person and you do not behave the same any more so you broke the mirror connection between you to.  No connection, no behaviors, no irritation.  Simple.

It may take a few more weeks or even months for your co-workers to realize you have changed, but you are encouraged that at your age you can still make positive changes in your life.

The people who come into your life as mirrors are there because of “acute agreements” made on the soul level between your higher selves.  His higher self and your higher self agreed for this situation to happen so you would each have the opportunity to grow.

The ability and opportunity for growth never stops.  You always have opportunity to change and become the person you instinctively want to become – even to the moment you pass from this Earth plane.  You have to make the decision, however, to make the changes on your own.  Changes you agree to make because someone is manipulating you, coercing you, bribing or threatening you to make will NOT last.

So when you are ready to make changes that YOU want to make they will come a little easier and last longer.  The change may be difficult – very much so if it involves a type of addiction – but remember, you are surrounded by those who Love you and will be here to support you in all that you do.  

This is one example of mirroring.  Take a few moments to examine your life and see if you can recall a situation where you had such a reaction to someone.  If you can, see if you can reflect back on the situation and see if you can apply an honest view in the mirror and see what you needed to see at that time to move forward on the growth path.

Change is always possible if you want it to.  Regardless of anyone else’s support or lack of support.  You are always in charge of your own life and you create your reality – which means you can change it as well if you don’t like it.

Are you where you really want to be?  Are you happy with the way you are?  Or do you need to look in the mirror for a while and see what you can change.

Remember – you are always Loved, Beloved Ones.
