This moment...

We know that is is very easy to get caught up in an all-consuming list of things you feel you must accomplish. It is easy to long for the things and situations you want in your future. It is all too common to focus on how you wish those around you would behave or how you would ideally like to "be." 

It is the nature of the soul to want improvements in your life, yourself, and those around you. However, the soul knows that the quickest way to a desired future is to anticipate its coming, while at the same time, living with a sense of wonder, awe, gratitude, acceptance, and compassion for yourself, the situation, and the people in front of you – right here, right now.

To accomplish this, dream your dreams, focus on improvements you want to make, and pray for the situations you desire. At the same time, remind yourself frequently...

What matters most is not what I accomplish today, but whether or not I enjoy this moment.

What matters most is not what I am going to have in the future but rather whether or not I am able to enjoy what I have now.

What matters most is not having everyone around me change, or even having myself change, but rather embracing myself and others as we are now... with a sense of wonder and compassion.


Of course you want to accomplish your goals. It is natural to want to improve your life. Love is always seeking to create a more loving experience. These wishes and dreams pull you forward along the path of your growth and evolution. Nonetheless, we remind you with great love...

Don't miss your life.

If you remain centered in the present, committed to finding love in the moment, immersing yourself with total focus on the task at hand, being grateful for what you have now, allowing yourself and others to be exactly as they are for the moment... then dear ones you will be open to an unblocked flow of love streaming straight from the heart of the Divine! 

You will think with clarity and receive crystal clear guidance. Your health, as well as your emotional and spiritual well-being will begin to improve instantly! When you embrace the present, you are no longer running away from love! If you are rushing to the future or hurrying away from your past, you are missing the love available right now.

Dream your dreams. At the same time, embrace each precious amazing moment of life. From each moment of love, peace, gratitude, compassion, and wonder, you will gracefully and easily be guided to an even better and more amazing moment as your eternal soul travel through the illusions of time.

Honesty is loving

Inside each of you is a very great love longing to rise to the surface. This love can be expressed in so many different ways! It can be expressed in your "yes" and in your "no." It can be expressed in your joy and in your gratitude. It lies beneath your sorrow, your fear, and even your upsets, for in truth, this love is what you are made of, and it is constantly trying to reveal itself in your life

You express this love most purely when you are honest with yourself and the world around you. There is a notion in humanity that love is only expressed in a "positive" form – by saying "yes' to every request, by making everyone comfortable, or by appearing cheery no matter what the circumstances. These expressions are beautiful when genuine. 

Nonetheless, there are times when "no" is an expression of love. There are times when love dictates that you must allow someone else their discomfort in order to be true to your own heart. There are even times when you cannot truly, authentically find a positive outlook and, in these spaces, allowing yourself your sadness, fear, anger, and envy with complete self-acceptance, may be the highest expression of love you can find in that moment. 

So many of you have been trained to believe that pleasing people is an act of love. We would agree when your heart is genuinely inclined to do so. However, it is not loving to assist another if you are not honestly drawn to do so. If a friend calls and says, "Can you help me today," and you have other plans, drop into your heart. "Heart, Divine Love, what is it you want for me today?" Trust the answer. Perhaps you will genuinely want to cancel your plans and help your friend. Perhaps you will not. Truth is loving Being honest with yourself and others is loving. If you serve the truth within your own hearts, dear ones, then whether or not you please everyone else's ego, you will serve their soul.

Remain true to the presence of light within. Serve the guidance in your heart in each moment, rather than living by the dictates with which you have been trained. Allow your "yes"es to be those that truly come from the heart. When you are not inclined to do something, say "no" with love. Trust. Trust that the creator is guiding each and every one of you. For every soul in need, there will be a soul genuinely guided and desiring to give. For every soul who longs to give, there will be one willing to receive. 

You are all expressions of the one Love, dancing in Love, with other expressions of Love. Be honest with yourselves dear ones and your lives will be a beautiful dance of Love

Unspoken Agreements

You live in a world of unspoken agreements and implicit expectations. You live in a world where many feel that if they do "x" someone owes them "y." A parent raises a child and expects that child to take care of them in later years. A woman or man is a dutiful daughter or son and expects their parent's blessing when they finally make their own choices. A partner sacrifices his or her own dreams for the other, expecting to be loved and supported in return. Perhaps. alternately a partner supports the other financially and expects to be loved for being the provider.

While these are certainly reasonable requests, they become troublesome when they are left as  unspoken expectations. If you do something with an expectation of having someone else do something or behave a certain way in return, then you have, in effect, stopped treating the other person as a soul, and started treating them as an "object" – a thing that must behave in a certain manner. Inevitably, this leads to disappointment, bitterness, upset and even hatred in extreme cases.

In reality dear ones you are all learning, growing, and trying to assist one another towards greater understandings of love.

Rather than harboring unspoken agreements, make explicit requests. "I will babysit your kids every week if you can be available when I occasionally need some help." "I don't mind providing for you but I do need some sympathy and understanding that I work long hours in return." "I will take care of you. I only ask that you treat me kindly." And to your kids. "I love you. I expect you to behave in a certain way. If you don't here is what will happen."
Decide what you will do if the requests are not met. Will you make the request of someone else? Will you let it go, realizing it is not so important? Will you walk away and move towards greener pastures and kinder souls? Will you simply outline the consequence of certain choices.

If the friend you have helped on a daily basis will not help you, you can choose to ask someone else to assist. You can walk away from the friendship, realizing it has been one-side all along. You can simply modify your plans. Only you will know what is true for you. If you children behave in ways that you don't like, again you have choice. You can drop into your heart and tell them how you feel. You can disown them. Again only you can choose what is honestly in your heart.

This way of living requires great personal responsibility. It requires you to be clear about what you want, courageous enough to express it, and faithful enough to know that if someone can't meet your requests that the entire universe is there waiting to assist with other alternatives. It is much more work to take responsibility in this way than to simply expect others to conform to your wishes and get upset when they don't.

However, dear ones, if you want to be free, we encourage you to release yourself and others from the bondage of expectations. Engage instead in real, honest, and authentic dialog in which you make explicit requests. Allow yourself to be who you are and want what you want. Allow others to be who they are. In this fashion you will easily see who honestly fits your life, and who doe not.

Dance of head & heart

The Creator never intended for you to struggle. You were never designed to handle a challenge or manage your human lives alone. You were not given dreams to taunt you, nor were you given the power of higher thought to control you. Instead you were meant to acknowledge the heart, to use your minds to figure out how to support your dreams, and to exist in a beautiful dance between the two. You were designed to live in harmony within yourself... and with the rest of creation.

Sadly, this is often not the case upon your planet earth. The mind has usurped the heart's power. Like a bad marriage, in which one partner thinks him or herself to be of more value than the other, a relationship with yourself in which the head negates heart is never pleasant. Nor conversely, is a relationship where the heart dreams but ignores the head, productive either. You were meant to live in a beautiful balance between the two.

So when you have a dream, by all means learn what you need to learn! Do what you know to do! But then dear ones, when you feel you do not know the next step, when you have "run out of options" as you like to say, when you start to lose faith in yourself, or when you begin to tire, or lose passion for what you are doing... Stop. This is not the time or place for the mind to take charge, because now it will simply start to make itself busy by finding reasons to fear, reasons to push you, or reasons to fail. Instead, this is the time, once again, to drop into the heart.

Ask yourself a simple question, "Heart what do you want to do now?" or 
God what do you want for me in this moment?" The answer will almost always be simple and feasible given the reality around you. 

Your mind may say, "Well I'd like to go on vacation now but I can't afford time off because I have get this business going," or "I can't afford it because I lent someone money and they didn't pay me back... and that just goes to show you can't trust anyone... " ... and down you go! 

The heart will say, "I think I'd like to go for a walk. Call a friend. Shut my eyes and envision the best. Get a glass of water or eat, so I can restore my energy. Look at vacations to fuel my dreams and give me incentive to work. Exercise a little. Go somewhere. Call someone." ... Simple things 

The heart gives you guidance that is easily achievable in the moment. Your guidance is often so simple that the head negates it. "That can't be of value! How can resting help my career when I have so much to do! I don't have time to exercise, eat, meditate... Taking a little time for recreation can't get me closer to my goals!" The head can always find "good" reasons to negate the simple guidance of the heart. 

Nonetheless, we ask you to experiment listening to your hearts. The creator may be motivating you to do something to change your energy where we are allowed to help you more clearly. You may be guided to do something that relaxes your mind enough so we can get through with new ideas. You may be guided to go somewhere that seems unrelated to your dreams, so you can meet someone who will help you. 

You are never alone. You are always loved. You are always guided. If you allow us to help you through your belief in Love, then we would be honored to assist – to help you hear your own hearts, follow your dreams, and live lives so much more joyful than you could even imagine.

If you can't change your situation....

Each and every moment of your life is rich with possibility. In every breath you get to choose how you react to life, what will think, and what you will do in the very next moment. The possibilities are endless! The opportunities for love and kindness are beyond imagination! If you could see reality as we do, you would never ever feel trapped in your life's situations. From our perspective in the heavens,we can see how each and every choice you make, in every moment, in every breath, gives you an entirely different different future.

Say, for example, you feel trapped in a job you do not like. You have to pay the bills to support your family. You don't have time to go to school. You've tried to find a new job and you don't know where to turn. Now, from a human perspective, that might look as if you have no other choices. However, you do have choice, dear friends! 

You can change your vibration even when you can't change your situation!

You can go to work every day saying to yourself, "I hate this job! I can't stand these people. My life is terrible." In that very sad reality your mind will continue to look for all that is terrible about this job. You will continue to attract terrible situations, unkind people, and you will spiral into a vortex of negativity, very much like a tornado, drawing all sorts of unwanted situations into your life.

Alternately, you can say to yourself, "I do want a better job but I'm thankful I have a paycheck. I'm thankful this job allows me to have heating and air conditioning, or food on the table. These aren't the nicest people, but at least we're not at war. At least I am safe. I do want so much more for my life. I'm going to focus on creating more. But for now I'll give thanks for what I have."  

In this reality, dear ones, you do not waste one ounce of your precious life energy spiraling into the exhausting vortex of negativity. You allow yourself your feelings of wanting more, and yet you seek the things about your current situation that you can bless. 

You start to dream about your ideal job. You raise your vibration and suddenly, you are no longer playing by human rules. You are living "in the world but not of it." Suddenly you open your heart, mind, body, and soul to miracles. Suddenly a friend calls out of the blue and recommends that you check out a job opportunity. Perhaps you get transferred, promoted, or given a bonus. There are so many possibilities that open up for you when you seek to see love and bring love in any given situation... even while creating more.

Dear ones you are not trapped... ever. Even when you can't change your situation, you can change your vibration... and in this reality you allow Divine grace and miracles to flow into your life.

Your sacred point of view

There is a very loving energy in the world right now that is encouraging all of you to bring your hearts to the surface. For some this is easy. You have worked hard to be authentic, to be honest with yourself, and to communicate with honesty to others. 

For a large number of souls however, this is not so easy. If a person has not yet learned to look inside of their own heart and find what is truly there, the feelings may erupt, as a volcano does, in bursts, and spurts, and even come out in ways that don't directly reflect the deeper truth within.

For example, say a person asks their partner to help out and the partner explodes in anger. In reality he or she is simply frustrated, overwhelmed, and wants to help but feels exhausted. If they could communicate this with love – "I'd love to help you but I'm exhausted now. Can I do this later?" – then greater intimacy could be achieved.

Or take another example. You share your heart or point of view with someone and they immediately attack you or make you wrong. In reality they are trying to voice their opinion but are afraid of simply sharing it. Perhaps they were not heard as a child. Perhaps they were made to feel 'stupid.' Perhaps they desperately need someone to agree with them to feel valuable on this earth. If they could voice their true feelings rather than simply their thoughts, then even if you disagree, you'd have a deeper understanding of one another. 

Dear ones, agreement is never necessary for love. However, if you want to grow closer to those who fit your life and gently move away from those who don't you will have to dig deeper, get to know your own hearts more, and then voice those beautiful hearts with love and compassion. Everyone has a right to their point of view. Everyone is exactly where they need to be to grow into the next level of understanding and love... including you!  

So rather than making others wrong, or making yourself wrong, allow everyone, including yourself, a unique and sacred point of view.

Gentle whispers

There is within each of your hearts, at every given moment in time an impulse from the Creator, a gentle whisper that says, "I love you. I care about you. I know your needs. This is where I am guiding you." 

It comes as a the most subtle desire for rest, the craving for a food that you might not normally eat, the urge to pick up the phone and call a friend. It comes as a force of motivation that suddenly has you feeling inspired and passionate to get something done, learn a new skill, or leave an activity you once felt guided to do. 

This whisper in your heart might turn into words you didn't expect to speak, or sometimes, a sudden feeling to stay silent and listen. It might come as a feeling of sleep overcoming you, or an unease in your body that demands release through movement.

These are simple things dear ones –  simple urges, passionate inspirations, subtle messages from the soul, and yet these simple whispers of guidance can dramatically change your life. The Creator knows, in every breath, the state of all of creation. The Creator knows how to harmoniously orchestrate the dance of the stars, the beating of your heart, and even the tiniest details of your life and heart's desires. 

You are loved. You are not alone. You are not subject to the whims of fate or the dictates of a capricious "god"... rather you are loved, cherished, and guided in every breath, every moment of your lives. Listen to the whispers in your heart dear friends. Streams of grace await you.
