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.

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.

 

Developing Trust and Faith in God

Greetings, Beloved Ones,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The One Rule – Seek Love

Greetings, Beloved Ones.

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

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

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

The Creator does not demand perfection; that is ego.

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

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

The Creator does not demand ideology; that is ego.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blessings to you.

Step Back and Take Stock

Greetings Beloved Ones.

We angelics would like you to ponder an idea.  When you are struggling with doing something and nothing seems to be going well, what do you do?  What is your pattern of behavior in situations like this?

We ask this because many people engage in the self-destructive pattern of continuing to throw themselves into the situation because they are afraid to “fail”.  They are afraid to be seen or afraid to view themselves as a “quitter” and so they continue to battle onward.  Unfortunately, this is not always what is in your highest and best good.

Challenge exists on the human plane and that you will find challenges throughout your lifetime.  When you encounter something challenging, we would like you to take a moment to step back, become calm and centered, and ask yourself, “why am I doing this?”.

This simple question, asked when you are grounded and balanced and in a neutral emotional state, can help direct your next steps.  So much negative energy is wrapped up in frustration, hurt, and anger feelings and while these certainly can damage you yourself, when you are caught up in a cycle of these negative emotions many times you can also hurt those around you – especially those you love.

There are many detrimental energies that exist on the human plane that encourage these types of emotions and events.  They fan the fire of your ire and then bask in the glow that erupts through harsh words and physical actions.

This is not the path of Love.  These are not actions chosen for you by Spirit.  Whenever any emotion other than Love is felt or expressed by you, realize that you are not acting from a place of Love and you are not acting in connection with Spirit.  Take control and step back and review the situation from a place of calm and detachment.

Your Higher Self has many challenges planned for you in your lifetime.  Your Free Will choices allow you to choose how you will act and live your life.  But we angelics are asking you to stop negative behavior patterns because this is not about overcoming a challenging.  The true challenge is to recognize when you are being manipulated by energies that don’t want you to succeed in living a life based in Love.

Love is all there is, truly.  When you turn away from Love you are adding to the difficulty in your life.  When you turn back to Love, and ask to be shown what else you could be doing, another path will be shown to you.  It may also have challenges, but when you choose the path of Love the challenges will be fewer and your Love of Self and Others will continue to grow.  Choose Love, always.

Keep this in mind, Beloved Ones.  We love you and are here with you always.

The Authentic You

Greeting Beloved Ones.

We visit with you today to touch upon a topic we have mentioned before, but which is one of great importance to humans – truth and authenticity.

Many times as you are being raised you are taught to be “something”. You care and respect, or maybe you just fear, those who hold your life in their hands and so as a small child you begin the process of conformity. Even those who seem to rebel are conforming to some degree.

While we see that survival in human form often requires compromises, we object to the turning away of the inner truth you each hold inside of you. You are born not only with a blueprint to your personality but also with an intrinsic understanding of and the ability to commune with the Creator.

For those who wish to grow and develop in their spiritual experiences it is imperative that you stop lying to yourself and embrace the truth. You may have to take it all in with bite sizes, but the truth will set you free.

The truth exists within you and when you wipe away the haze that has covered you all your life for the clarity that is Truth you will gain much, incliding the opportunity to form new opinions and new perspectives about your life, the people in your life, and your future.

This can be scary for some people. Please know that we angelcis are here with you, every moment of every day and you will not be alone through the process. But it will cost you to proceed.

You may lose friends. You may alienate some family members. You may find that you need to make a career change and possibly find a different place to live. These things can be challenging, but they will also be rewarding. Your life will shift into alignment with your blueprint. People will gravitate to you and you will start new friendships with people who recognize you and not what you were programmed to be.

You will find yourself led into a life that is in alignment with your soul’s purposes in this lifetime, and you will find yourself filled with joy without realizing why. You won’t struggle with the day to day as you did. Life won’t become miraculously easy and you wont most likely become a millionaire overnight, but what you will gain will be worth every second and every challenge.

For some people the changes are filled with happiness while others will struggle and question why they even made the first change. Or somewhere in between or something different. It is all good. Everyone is different and there is no one way to find the truth within you.

But there are dozens of reasons to do it and they all exist within you. Please. Take a moment during your meditation and check to see if you are truly living your life in alignment. Everyone should do that every day, because the Creator has given humans incredible lives to live so why would you live someone else’s life when you have your own? It is so easy to go along living and be content and not think twice about being in alignment, but that is the perfect reason to check with your guides and angels and higher self. Just because you are comfortable does not mean you are in alignment. In some cases it may mean that you have fallen asleep and need to wake up.

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.

Love

Greetings, Beloved ones.

The human idea of love is very different from that of Love of the Divine.  The Love of the Divine is a constant, unending source of peace and joy whereas human love is extremely conditional.  Unfortunately, humans tend to project their own issues with love, self-love, self-esteem, gratitude, and self-awareness onto the Divine and thus perpetuate their issues when “god” does not give them what they want.

Prayer is a means of communion with God, with the Divine, with Spirit – however you want to term it.  The Creator is all things and wants you to feel comfortable however you address it; but when you use a term that is loaded with unconscious and subconscious connotations you hinder your spiritual growth.

We, the Angelics, suggest when you start your search for a deeper relationship with the Divine that you set aside whatever term you have used in the past and select a new term.  Believe us – it will not hurt the Divine’s feelings if you feel the desire to call it a watermelon, a caterpillar, the Divine, Love, Spirit, the wind in the trees or whatever else resonates with you.  This is YOUR journey and you need to help yourself in every way you can.

Understanding the psychology of the human mind will help your progress – denial of it will hold you back.  So accept the way you are and look to the goal of moving past that which is holding you back and take the small steps necessary to build a new vision of the Creator.

Love is what will await you when you reach the place of communing with the Divine.  Not a love that is conditional or wavering or weak, but strong, solid, consistent, and ever lasting.  It may be so powerful that you have to take it in via tiny sips – but allow yourself to take those tiny sips as the Love from the Divine is extremely powerful and will help you heal and grow in all ways.

Be with the Divine every day and know that the Divine is always with you.
