A cry for love

When you see pain and violence in your world, it is all too easy and very human to fall into fear, anger, or despair. However, every time you witness "bad news" you are being given an opportunity to love. You are being given a chance to be the lightworker that you truly are.

Instead of hating those who engage in hate filled behaviors, take a moment, and realize that these are the very souls who are so wounded, so lost in the illusions of separation, so filled with fear and self-loathing, that they are crying out for love.

We aren't asking you to like them. We certainly are not asking you to condone their painful actions. By all means use social justice to protect the innocent. However, dear ones, be the love that you are. Use your God given power to focus on the light within all souls – no matter how dim. Pray to elevate the lost, the weak, the weary, and even those bound by the chains of their own hatred, anger, and fear. 

Your soul is set free when you can love the truth & the light within even those most disconnected from it. 

In this loving truth, you are safe and protected. In this reality you are "in the world but not of it." In this reality "although you walk in the valley of the shadow of death, you shall fear no evil." You can, amidst eve n the hells of the world, be the light, the truth, and the comforting presence of heaven.

Let God breathe...

All of nature understands the balance between giving and receiving. The heart pumps in and out. You breathe in and out. The waves roll up and back upon the shore. The trees receive sun, water, and soil then give their fruits. The entire universe is designed to allow the breath of God, the love of the Divine to flow freely through it in endless cycles of giving and receiving.

Humanity struggles with the balance there because it is human nature to over think things, rather than allowing yourselves to simply act in a guided and natural manner. If you were able to listen to your hearts, you would give when guided, and receive when it resonates. Neither would be valued more than another because both would be seen as simply a dance and movement of love.

So why are you afraid to give at times dear ones? Sometimes you are not motivated to do so, or inspired. Sometimes you do not have the resources. In these case, don't give! It is not holy to give out of a sense of duty, out of pity, out of a fear that if you don't no one else will. The Creator cares about all souls and if you are not motivated to give, you can trust someone else will be.  

However there are times when you want to give and you do not. You fear that you will be misunderstood. You fear that the other may not be worthy of the gift. You fear you will be "used." Dear ones if you give when guided, the giving itself is a joy and a blessing... to you too! Relax, release it. When it is a joy to give, do so for the sheer joy of giving, with no strings attached. You are keeping love moving through the universe and through your own life.

More of you are afraid to receive. There are times when it truly does not feel right to receive. You don't need or can't use the gift offered. Receive the love with appreciation and define the thing or service. Sometimes you sense unspoken agreements or "strings attached." By all means, in these cases, feel free to decline the gift.

But sometimes there are times when people offer to give you something you want, need, or could use and yet you are afraid to receive. Most often you are afraid they will want more of you later. In that case, make up your mind that receiving with a gracious heart is all you owe, and ask if there are any expectations in return. 

Some of you are afraid it is weak to receive. You fear it will put you at the mercy of others upon whom you cannot depend. That is like being hungry and saying to someone, "No I cannot accept your meal now because you may not feed me tomorrow." It makes no sense. Receive now and trust the Creator will provide later. Some of you are simply taught that it is greedy to receiving, but we contend that greedy "taking" and "receiving" are two different things. Receiving blesses the giver with graciousness and gratitude. Taking comes from an insecure sense of entitlement. Receive by all means and allow others the joy of blessing you!

Keep the love moving throughout the universe, dear ones, by giving and receiving as guided. Don't allow fear to stop you from either when you are authentically motivated. Then, enjoy the beautiful feelings of love flowing through your life and your heart. You have just allowed God to breathe.

Everyone has a gift

Everyone who crosses your path has a gift for you. There is purpose in every single one of your human interactions, no matter how small and insignificant they might seem. There is a dance going on, universally, with only one intention – to guide each and every one of you back into the arms of Love, back into the realization that you can never be separate from the Divine. Dear ones, everyone is offering you a gift that can help you on this journey. It is your task to "unwrap the Presence."

It is easy to recognize the gift of love in the kind souls. It is much harder to recognize this gift in the unkind ones. We spoke of this last week. They are often in front of you to help you remember to love yourself, to have compassion but not pity, to "forgive them, for they know not what they do."

It is sometimes difficult to see how those who are in need are a gift, but they too help you learn and grow into greater love. Perhaps they help you see you have something to give. They help you value yourself and your talents more. Or they might simply be placing demands upon you so you can learn good boundaries or to honor your time and resources more than you have in the past. 

Some souls offer you the chance to say a loving "yes" while others give you the opportunity to practice a loving "no." So look around you. Instead of saying, "Why are they doing that?" with contempt and judgment, ask yourself a different question... "How does this moment offer me an opportunity to grow into more love for myself first, then others."  

If you choose to love yourselves first, you are naturally going to be more loving. If you choose to care for yourselves first, you will by nature, wish to care for others. If you give, give from the love of doing so, because it honors your spirit and desire to give. If it does not, don't. 

Be authentic dear ones in all your interactions. Be loving and kind to yourself and others... even when you set a boundary, even when you "draw the line," even when you have to walk away. 

Every moment, and every human interaction is an opportunity for love. The moments you choose to love yourself and others are the ones that have deep and lasting value in your lives.

Everyone keeps you on path

It is easy to love those who are loving and kind. It is not so easy to love those who trigger your pain, upset, anger, fear, and sadness. Nonetheless, even the denser, darker, and disagreeable souls serve a purpose in your life. 

Their behaviors may be a reflection of something you are doing to yourself, or a call to be kinder and more loving to yourself. Are you surrounded by critical individuals? Perhaps you refuse to accept yourself kindly. Are you surrounded by those who are angry and rude? Perhaps you are angry and simply need to learn healthy boundaries, or to take care of yourself better. Maybe you are learning to move away from people and situations that hurt. Are others treating you with less than respectful behaviors? Do you respect yourself enough to move away from these?

Dear ones, when someone is hurtful, look at this and say to yourself... 

"How is this individual's behavior highlighting a need to love myself more, to be more respectful to myself, or to treat myself more kindly?" 

"What do I need to change inside of me?"
 "What behaviors do I need to change to either communicate a desire for more love, to move away from unloving behaviors, or to love myself enough to avoid allowing their unkindness to shake me?"

"How can I use this circumstance to motivate me to create greater love and blessings in my life?"


Everyone serves a purpose in your life dear ones. The kind people assist you on your path, and the less-than-kind show you either where you have strayed from your path of love and joy, or where you do not want to go! 

Bless them all, and thank them, if only soul-to-soul, for in truth, everyone on this earth assists you in discovering and creating more love in your life.

Use tech for love

We love the many means of connection you have on your planet earth. We love your Internet, your phones, and your computers. We see them as wonderful means of sharing love, information, and inspiration. They offer you opportunity to embrace diverse opinions and learn about cultures and ideologies different from your own. Your technology keeps you in touch – not only with friends and family – but with your entire human family. 

However, like anything in your world, technology can be used to add love to your life or to distract you from it. There are times when connecting with the world is an act of love and joy – a way of uplifting yourselves and one another. When you use your technology for these purposes, it becomes a vehicle for the Divine. 

There are other times however, when you use your technology to avoid connecting with yourself, your inner wisdom, and the love of the heavens. There are times when it becomes a tool for spreading negativity and hatred.

So ask yourself today, "How will I use this very beautiful technology in my life? Will it be a vehicle to serve love, and add love to my life, or will it be a distraction from the very same? Will it be used to share fear and negativity, or to spread messages of hope and inspiration?"

By all means enjoy your technology, dear ones! It mirrors the inner realms of energy in which all communication is possible. Don't forget, however, that you do have access, within, to far more than is possible via your Internet. Periodically you must take the time to disconnect from your techonlogy so you can reconnect with yourself and the Source.  

Use your technology as a tool for connection. Enjoy its blessings. But remember, there is also a deeper, truer connection that you are all craving. Strive to find the balance there... between the human and the Divine, and you will be enjoying the best of both worlds.

Love from Above & Below

Breathe. Drop into your heart and breathe as if you could inhale all the love in the universe. Breathe in again and let this love sink deeply into you, filling you, rejuvenating you, relaxing you. In truth, dear ones, Love is there for you at all times.

Love is there in the morning's first warm rays of sunshine! This is why the birds sing with joy each and every dawn. Give thanks for you sun for it is the light that gives you physical life. Your sun has a soul that is very much like the pure light of God wanting always to burn away the clouds, and to activate the life within all living beings.

Love is there waiting for you beneath your feet in the embrace of your Mother earth. Feel the grass, the dirt, the sand beneath you when you walk outside and give thanks for this living, breathing, being that inhabits your beautiful planet, for her soul loves you very much, nourishes you and gives you life. She gives you the home in which your soul is allowed to play and discover its deeper truths.

Love is there in the eyes of a dear friend who comforts and validates you, and Love is there in the eyes of the darkest soul, begging for release from the bondage of erroneous thinking and painful lies.

Love lives beneath all of creation, longing for expression, longing to be seen, received, felt, and expressed. You are never without love dear ones. "Seek and ye shall find. Knock and the door will be opened." Love is waiting patiently to reveal itself to you in all of creation.

Love doesn't hurt

There is a mistaken notion upon your planet, that love hurts. Love never hurts dear ones! Love heals! Love transforms! Love uplifts! Love makes you feel like the most beautiful, amazing, being that you can be! Love connects you with your very essence.

Why then, is it so hard to love upon your planet earth, and why do so many of you feel you must hurt in the name of love?

We hear this question all the time and the answer is rooted in a deep misunderstanding about the nature of love.

Humanity believes love is something you "do," and while we celebrate expressions of love, we know Love is a state of being.

Humanity teaches you that love is something you "earn" and yet we know that Love is already there for you, living within you, in every moment of every day. It is the very essence of creation, available for all of you without condition. You are all worthy of love.

Humanity believes that love is something that requires reciprocation, yet here in the Heavens we love unabashedly whether we are loved in return or not. We know Love is the energy that lives and breathes within us and needs nothing in return. Love is our nature. Love is your nature. Loving feels good. Withholding love hurts.

Love is the state of being in which the Light within you sees and acknowledges the light within another.

So how do you apply this upon your earth, dear friends? We know, that beneath any hurt and pain, you truly desire to love! You truly wish to experience your own light, and your own innate goodness. In your deepest truth, you want to see and appreciate the light and goodness within others.

However, you also want to feel good, and if you do not work to love yourself and grant yourself a life that supports your joy, you will look to the outside world for love and you will "fall" in love with anyone or anything that makes you feel good.

Now, there is nothing wrong with this. It is human and it is still a form of love. Nonetheless, whenever you worship false idols, whenever you give your power to be happy to another person or thing, you also grant them the power to take it from you. You love them when they make you feel good and you stop loving them, or worse, hate them when they can no longer do so. This dear ones, is what human beings call love, but is in reality a small projection of the true, deep, and abiding Love that is available to you all, right here, right now, in all of creation.

Take a breath. Ask yourself, "Do I love me exactly as I am right now, or do I tell myself I must earn my own love... by being prettier, more handsome, smarter, kinder, wiser, etc.?" Take a breath and accept yourself and your answer with compassion and without condition. You have just begun the journey to self love.

Ask yourself, "Do I treat myself the way I would if I were with a lover who adored me? Do I care for myself, maintain my life, and seek to be joyous, interesting, happy, as I would if I had someone to impress? Am I maintaining myself as if I am a person who is loved and adored?"

"Am I talking time to connect to whatever I consider to be a higher, more loving force in the Universe?" "Do I ask my angels for help frequently and sit in reception of their love?"

"Do I take time to listen to my own heart and care for its longings," the way I would hope a lover would listen to me? "Do I nurture my dreams," the way I would want someone else to do? Am I giving myself the Love that I seek, or am I waiting for someone else to do that for me?

These question apply whether or not you are in relationship. These questions will show you the areas in your life in which you can choose to love yourself more deeply, and therefore where you will free yourself from the bondage of expecting others to provide for you, what you will not. There is an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Creator that wants to help you. There is a Love so vast and all encompassing that you could never possibly be alone. Angels wait "in the wings" to assist you.

Rather than waiting for another to love you as you wish, whether it be the fantasy "love of your life," or your spouse sitting in the other room, make a decision right here and right now, that you will treat yourself as if you are the love of your life. Rather than waiting for life, or others to behave as you wish, find the good in the here and now. Challenge yourself to love yourself and life exactly as it is, and then from that present moment of acceptance, challenge yourself to make the next moment better.

Then, from this fullness of Love within yourselves, truly loving another becomes possible. Then you can accept others exactly as they are.

If you learn to cultivate your own joy and your own well-being, then you can accept the gifts of others when they are offered, but you can also bring love from your depths when others cannot. You will no longer need to feel a lack of love, because you have connected yourself the eternal, endless Source of Love itself.

This Love is a true, deep, and real state of being in which you allow yourself and everyone else to be exactly as they are and simply decide if you want to "dance" or not.

Love dear ones, does not hurt. Love accepts. Love trusts. Love heals and transforms. Love is who and what you are made of... and no one has the power to take this from you. Love yourselves. Fill up your cup... then you will be able to truly love.

We love you always, without condition or expectation. We experience our eternal abiding connection to the Source of Love itself and so whether you love us or hate us, we love you... simply because we know that is our nature, and that kind of love is what feels good at all times.
