End the wars in our lives

While we know most of you cannot do much to solve the wars between nations, you can easily affect the vibration of war by ceasing the wars within your own lives. "Wars?" you ask. "What wars are there in my own life?" Dear ones, we would never judge you but we see so many wars within your lives.

There are wars between your head and your heart. You feel one way and you try to tell yourself you shouldn't. You wage war on a feeling, a belief, a perception instead of simply saying to yourself, "Well that is an interesting feeling. That is an interesting thought." You do not have to like your feelings. You do not have to like your thoughts. But can you allow them their expression, often in private, and simply acknowledge their right to be. Even when you are frustrated, sad, angry, jealous, or a million other states of being that you have been taught to judge, can you simply sit with the feeling and allow it to be? For it is only in loving something that you can transform it. Say for example, you are angry. Instead of trying to push it away and pretend you are not, say to yourself, "I am angry. What is this anger trying to tell me to do? How is it trying to tell me to adjust my life? Is it asking me to be more kindly honest with someone about my own needs? Is is telling me to leaven an unhealthy situation? It is telling me I am wanting to manifest kinder treatment?" By embracing your feelings in such a fashion, rather than "Waging War" upon them and telling yourself they have no right to be, you embrace them, take them into your light, and find the love beneath them.

Likewise, you do not have to wage war upon others with whom you do not agree. When someone rubs you the wrong way, say to yourself. "I do not like that person." or "I do not like their behavior." They have a right to be and I have a right to be... what now? Do you move away from them? Do you speak up kindly and just share your perspective without any attachment as to whether or not they agree? Do you simply live and let live? Only you can choose the course of action that feels best, but all of these actions are kinder than what usually transpires between two human beings when they either try to bend their own point of view or personality to fit another, or bend another's to fit their own. Can you meet in the middle? Yes, by all means if you can, we encourage it. But we simply ask you not to "wage war" trying to force another to believe as you do, or trying to force yourself to feel other than you truly do.

Dear ones, all perspectives on this earth have a right to be. The trick to being human is to figure out the most loving way to allow you to be yourself while allowing others to be themselves as well. If you all could truly do this your entire world would sort itself out and there would be no wars. Humanity is far from this reality and yet you can choose peace in your own mind, heart, and life... no matter what anyone else is choosing to embrace.

No Wrong Turns

There are no mistakes dear ones. There are no "wrong turns." There is no such thing as being truly "lost" or "off the path." In truth you are always connected to God. You are always loved. You are always guided. The question is not whether or not God loves you, or whether or not we love you. The question is simply, "Do you love yourself enough to slow down and receive what is always there for the taking?"

So when you feel lost, slow down. Breathe. Ask us for assistance and trust what comes to your heart. When you feel you have made what you consider to be a mistake, learn from it, release it, and move on. When you feel disconnected from God, stop. Choose to do something, anything, that helps you focus on love once again. Look a a picture you enjoy. Watch a show that makes you happy. Breathe and feel the air filling your lungs. Love is everywhere.

There are no wrong turns. There are no mistakes. There is never a time you can stray from God. The sun shines behind the clouds even in the worst storms. The love of the creator is there for you no matter what you have done or not done, said or not said, who you have been or not been. Will you receive it? Will you give yourself enough love to connect to the greater love? Dear ones, nothing can disconnect you. Your entire journey here upon the earth is to help you remember and experience this one simple, and yet deeply profound truth.

Water your dreams

We understand that last week many of you celebrated what you call your independence day. And here we smile because you are all free, always and forever in our eyes. You are free to be who you are, free to love, and free to take steps to follow the desires planted within your hearts.

There is no dream, no desire that the creator has planted within you is too big. No dream is out of reach. No dream is impossible, for as you know all things are possible with God. You may not know how something will be created, and yet that causes your faith to grow, your trust to expand, your heart to open even more deeply to yourself. In truth all desires are planted in your hearts by agreement between the creator and your soul, for one purpose, and one alone - to help you understand that there is no separation between you and the power that creates universes.

So when you have a dream, you are free to say, "Yes, I would like that to come true." You are free to say, "Please guide me as to the very next step. Please show me what I can do to facilitate this dream, to birth it." If you were to have a baby dear ones it is not an act of forcing biology, but rather an act of making yourself ready to receive new life, nurturing yourself while the new life grows within you and surrendering when it it time to give birth . So too for your dreams. Make a space inside of your heart and especially inside of your mind for them to exist. Nurture them with both your faith and your willingness to act when guided. And then, when there is nothing else to be done, surrender, and wait for the situation, timing, and circumstances to bring them forth.

Achieving your dreams, while it may seem "achieving a goal" to the human personality, is to the soul, simply a by-product of the growth you wish to achieve here on earth.

Don't put off life...

Your life is happening now, dear ones, not tomorrow, not some day in the future, but right now. There will always be reasons to put off your joy. There will always be very good excuses. You may not have enough time, money, or energy for your dreams. You may not feel well enough to take the steps to make things happen. Our message today is simple... take the steps anyway, for in moving forward towards your dreams, wishes, goals, and desires, you call forth Life! You call forth Love! You enter into streams of grace in which you receive the support and assistance you need.

It is never in struggling or doing things out of fear from which you attract help. Acting out of fear or panic simply attracts more fearful circumstances. Acting from love, joy, desire, and passion ... That type of action is motivated by love, and in return the universe must echo love back to you!

If you expend your energy in fear-based actions, you will feel drained. You will attract more struggle and chaos. If you expend your energy in loving action you will feel more energized. You will attract more grace and ease.

Don't put off loving action one more second. As you read this, drop into your heart. Breath into it and imagine that spark of light becoming brighter. Ask yourself, "Heart, what one thing do you want to do that I can begin right now?" And as soon as you are done reading this newsletter, honor that heart's desire. Take a small step, or maybe even a large one, in a loving direction.

Dip your toes into the streams of grace so you can be swept away in currents of love. They are always there, flowing, waiting for you.

Everything has purpose

Can you trust that everything, absolutely everything in life is in right order. Everything that happens around you is with purpose. Everything is in a harmonious dance of creation designed to interact in a beautiful dance of love. And when things do not feel loving it is simply born of misunderstanding - either the misunderstanding of those creating the actions, or the misunderstanding of those who bear witness.

But how can such atrocities as murder or abuse be in "right order,” we hear you asking? How can they possibly serve a purpose? Dear ones, at the level of human interaction they are, of course, morally wrong. To hurt or kill another is an unloving action and a crime not only against the other, but also against humanity, and more importantly against one’s deepest and truest essence… which is love.

Nonetheless, beneath every horrible action, we see love attempting to emerge. We see hurting souls crying for their pain to be seen in the most unloving and un-evolved ways. We see those who suffer at the hands of murderers, abusers, and other perpetrators frequently, as angels who are willing, as the famous martyrs of old, to suffer if they feel it would help remove another’s pain. Is this necessary? Of course not dear ones. God asks very few souls to be martyrs, and yet so many volunteer out of a belief that it is the holiest course of action to do so.

If you could only see the decisions made before birth… “I will do anything, anything to wake up this other soul that I love so much…even if it involves suffering at their hand!” In the heavens before birth that is such an easy decision to make, because the soul knows it is eternal. On earth, these spirits - now human - often wonder what they have done to “deserve” such behaviors. No one, and we repeat, no one, deserves abuse of any kind.

And while this kind of choice - to suffer for the sake of another, may seem unthinkable - how many of you have willingly sacrificed your own well being, even in the smallest of ways, out of a desire to help and assist another? This is not wrong. It is a choice. Only you can decide if the choice feelings loving and right for all involved, including yourself.

There are an infinite number of reasons for suffering on your planet earth. Some souls suffer, as the martyrs do, trying to “wake up” another. Some wish to inspire compassion. Some souls leave the earth in seemingly awful ways because they are tired, complete, or in rare cases, curious about transition. Some feel, erroneously, that they “deserve” punishment for past life behaviors. So while at the human level see suffering as “bad” or “wrong,” understand that even the toughest situations on earth have merit and purpose to the soul.

Why do we have this discussion dear ones? Because so many of you feel such sadness when you witness the world’s pain. We in the heavens dearly wish that all souls would choose to grow in a more loving and kind way for themselves and others. But we do not allow the behavior of others to remove us from seeing and feeling the love of the Creator. And you, even as humans, can bear witness to the world’s suffering and still know that each and every soul involved is being given an opportunity to learn more about love - love of God, love of self, and love of others, for as we see it… this is all One in the same.

Stop struggling, enjoy now

You can never be without love, without guidance, or without direction. It is only your thoughts that limit you, and your ideas of what can or cannot be achieved in your human reality. When you pray, so many of you pray in desperation rather than in faith. If you truly knew God's love for you, if you believed with all your heart that the power that made you wants to sustain and elevate you, then you would pray with confidence, trusting that your prayers would all be answered in the right time and in the most beautiful fashion.

Dear ones, you go about life so dearly trying to control every aspect of it. You want things to look a certain way, "so that you will be happy," but in truth so many of you are willing to sacrifice your happiness now in the hopes of a happier future. In truth, you can choose to enjoy your life right now. You can choose to savor the sunrise, or smell the sweet scent of a rose. You can give thanks for the breath your breathe, the roof overhead, and the food that nourishes your body. You can trust that all is in right order, all is well, and if you simply let go in faith, doing what you know to do now and relaxing into the moment, then your life can unfold in ways you could not possibly dream or imagine. You can open up to life, rather than trying to control it. You can pick the most enticing current in the stream and enjoy the ride. You can say, "Ah this feels good right now, let me see where it leads."

Life was never meant to be a struggle. And yet humanity chooses to struggle with life. Embrace it instead. Say, "Here I am, right here, right now! Is there anything I know to do right this second that feels wonderful and supports my dreams? If so, do it. If not, enjoy the moment." Trust life dear ones. It is nothing less than Love interacting with Love in an endless dance of discovering what it can become.

Containers for the soul...

Each one of you is a beautiful part of creation. Each one of you holds within your very being, within your mind, body, and emotions, even within your DNA, the potential to be anyone you choose to be in the whole of creation. However, before you come to earth, you select various traits that you will embody and embrace - skin color, eye color, hair, size, shape, emotional makeup, mental points of view given to you by parents, society, etc. These will be your soul’s “containers” while you are on the earth, until at long last you realize you are not the containers, but rather something so much more.

It is important that you honor these containers for the functions they serve. Love your body as it is now, even if you want to change it later. It is teaching you to love yourself more deeply. Honor your own emotions for they guide you to a deeper truth about what it is you wish to experience in any given moment. They are messages from your soul. Embrace your ideologies because they allow you to explore various aspects of self, while all the while allowing others’s theirs as well.

These containers - the mind, body, emotions - are often called “the ego” and “the ego” seems to have a very bad reputation in your human minds. In reality “the ego” is simply a container for the soul, a little vessel that limits your experience so you can, in a sense, enroll in certain classes her upon the earth. “The ego” is neither good nor bad. It defines your sacred point of view this lifetime - what aspects of the infinite that you wish to explore.

Problems occur when you begin to believe “your ego” is the only right container for the soul - when you expect others to look as you think they should, feel as you think they should, and believe as you believe they should. This is like a glass of water saying to the pitcher, “You should be a glass like me!” or the river saying to the ocean, “Why are you so spread out? You should run through a channel as I do!” or the ocean saying to the river, “Why are you so confined! Relax! Spread out! Let go.”

By all means, embrace who you are and wish to be in any given moment. Be clear about who and what you want in your lives and make no apology for your own sacred point of view. However, allow others their own as well, for their bodies, beliefs and feelings define their classes here upon the earth. Share yours of course, but try to allow others theirs as well. When you embrace your own sacred point of view you can, without apology, move closer to those with whom you resonate and kindly move away from those with whom you do not. You can allow others who respect your particular brand of light to move closer, and you can kindly and firmly create boundaries for those who do not.

While each one of you is part of one great love, you choose to experience this love in different forms during a lifetime, and at different points in your life. Allow yourselves this freedom. Allow others the same. And in so doing, you grant the world a deep and ever changing, but lasting peace.
