The heart has its reasons

While there is nothing wrong with being a “creature of habit,” it is your habits that either enliven you or slowly cause your energy to withdraw from life. Life is meant to be lived openly, as an adventure and an exploration of self. 

Life is a never ending series of present moments in which you get to choose your experience, based on your God given guidance and soul-level desires.  

Your desires inspired you to grow. Your guidance tries to help you grow gracefully and kindly.

For example, say you desire a relationship. That is wonderful. The desire itself begins to draw life force through you. Suddenly your mind starts to take over. “It must be this kind of person and not that. He/she must look like this and not that,” or sometimes worse, “Forget it. Relationships hurt. Better to avoid them!"

Then you meet someone. Your instincts tell you that you want to get to know them better, but the mind starts chattering, “They don’t look like what we expected. What if they’re not ’the one’? You know relationships hurt, just give up!" You talk yourself out of your natural instinct to get to know them better. In doing so you rob yourself of the gifts life has to offer.

There could be a whole variety of reasons you are guided to get to know this person. Perhaps they could help you with career. Maybe they would become a friend who would help you feel safe in the world. Possibly they would be exactly the type of person you've been with in the past and this would give you a chance to trust yourself, and leave, when you see the warning signs a few weeks into the relationship. Maybe they're a potential love. The possibilities are endless.

Perhaps you have a desire to try something new - a class, a food, a career, or a hobby. Your heart feels excited. Your mind starts to offer all sorts of reasons why you should ignore the heart, “You’re too old. You don’t have enough time. You read an article on the Internet that says this isn't good for you. What makes you think you could that?” Your mind make excuses and you give up before you even give your heart a chance. 

Maybe you would not have liked the new food, but you would have learned something useful from someone in the grocery store or restaurant. Maybe you wouldn’t have maintained the hobby, but you’d meet a dear friend along the way. Maybe you're guided into a new career and then fired, only to discover this is a stepping stone to your dream job. 

If you don’t listen to the heart, you may never discover its reasons. If you don’t remain open to life and your instincts in each moment, you might miss the fullest life you could be living.

Dear ones, we honor your need to grow on earth but we always attempt to guide you to grow in the most kind and loving way possible. We attempt to guide you to grow in ways you wish to grow when possible. We attempt to help you grow in love.

Use your minds, by all means, to review the past, but always pay attention as well to how you feel right here, right now. While the mind may argue against the heart, the heart always knows the kindest and most loving path... in each moment.

Finding the key

You are all so precious to us. Each and every one of you is a unique embodiment of divine love. Each and every one of you so beautiful. Each and every one of you is striving to find your way back to the truth of your being. We will always and forevermore see you as perfect, pure light, whether you remember this truth or not.
We witness the disagreements upon your earth and see only the right hand arguing with the left because it doesn’t yet realize they are part of one body. We see people violently upset because they simply want to be understood and acknowledge for their perspectives. Wars could be avoided if you listened to one another more deeply. Vibrationally, wars can be avoided if a majority of you would all allow your head to listen to your heart.
The heart always has a desire to seek love, see love, and be love. The head has a desire to protect/defend/avoid change, or to explore/allow/create depending on whether or not it serves the heart. The heart that serves the head is a sad heart indeed. The head that serves the heart is one filled with the joy of being used to its full potential and original design. 

You could attempt to enter a room by pushing the walls down, breaking though the windows, coercing someone into carrying you in... or you could just find the key and walk through the door. Likewise you can change anything in your life by brute force, manipulation, or by finding the "key" to change and the walking through the doorways of guidance and opportunity.

The "keys" to your life changes are not always found in the programming of your past. Sometimes they are. If you want to find a new job you may know that it is necessary to create a resume. If you want to lose weight you may know that you require a change in activity or diet. If you want more peace, you already know some of the things you can do.

More often however, you can simply stop, breathe, receive the love of the Divine and your angels and then ask one simple question... "Given that I want this change, what is my next step?" Trust the first answer that comes.

Give up your worries to heaven dear ones. You do not have to break down the walls. Give up your strategies, mental manipulations, and things you think you "should be" or "must be" in order to have what you want. You do not have to coerce the universe –  or your own heart – to have what you want. You simply have to get quiet, breathe, receive, and ask for the "key," the very next step to be taken.

We want to help you find the "keys to the kingdom," and as you already know, "the kingdom of heaven lies within."

Embracing it all

In the heavens, we understand that all perspectives have a "right to be." This is very hard for human hearts to grasp. How can we say perspectives of hatred, division, and bigotry "have a right to be?" How can we allow for a perspective of one who says, "my life is more valuable than your life?" How can we love someone who would create division and violence?" 

We know this is very difficult concept because on earth "to love" means to "feel good about" more often than not. In the heavens, however, "to love" means "to see and know the light within" – that love and light that lies beneath the surface of all beings and all things no matter what. 

We see beyond the illusions you create, and the roles you play, upon the earth and know you as something more beautiful, more vast, eternal, and unchanging than the roles you play upon the earth. We understand that whatever perspectives a soul embraces upon the earth, they do so out of a necessity to grow, and a desire, no matter how un-evolved, to remember the truth of their being. Some will grow through love and kindness, and some will grow only when they look back in retrospect at the unloving behaviors and trails of pain they have left behind. All will learn. All have value.

Your sociopaths teach you not to be martyrs. Your bullies teach you to walk away in peace or stand up for what you believe in. Your liars teach you to discern truth. Your saints and quiet, kind, and genie souls inspire you to embrace the sweeter, more light filled side of your own nature. Everyone, every belief, every perspective, without exception has some value in this school called earth. To create the perfumed bloom of the rose you need the soil, the manure, the worms, the sun, the rain, and even the storms that strengthen the branches. All have equal value. All contribute to the blossoming.

Dear ones, even the darkest and most misguided souls contribute to the blossoming of your own soul. Do not crucify or judge them. Instead grow beyond them, around them, above them, and know that you need not dance with them once you have reached for greater light. You can discern without judging. You can embrace all perspectives as having a right to be without agreeing with them. You can say, "I know you have a right to be, but yet you are not right for me!" 

In this reality you can find the peace that surpasses all understanding, for what the mind cannot yet tolerate, the heart already seeks to love. In this reality you see, as we do, the truth, light, and love beneath it all.

God honors your soul's plans

You have a saying on your planet that "You make plans and God laughs." In truth, God would never laugh at your plans. God and we, your angels, try to assist you with your plans. First and foremost, however, we try to help you fulfill the plans of your soul.

You came to earth to learn about love. You came to earth to overcome limiting beliefs about yourself and life. You came to earth to rid yourself, perhaps, of habits that no longer serve you – such as martyring yourselves, or placing too much emphasis on the material world and not enough on what truly matters. You came to earth to find your limitations, conquer them, and once and for all find the bliss of true freedom! You wanted to remember you are born of nothing less than love itself and that love is what you are made of.

So if you want a new house and that house is a symbol of love for yourself, and if you love yourself enough to ask for our assistance, and to believe we can help, then you will soon be smiling as you walk into your new home! If however you want that house because you think you should advance materially, or someone else thinks you should get it, or maybe you want it for all the right reasons but don't believe you deserve it, or don't believe you have help... then dear ones, these limiting beliefs will limit how much we can assist you.

So by all means want what you want! Pray for what you desire, but always realize that God and your angels are helping you achieve the goals that will bring real happiness. Perhaps you didn't really want that big house after all, but just though you should. We might instead guide you to a cute little apartment that grants you freedom to travel as your heart truly desires. Perhaps you pray for one specific relationship but we can see you want true love and so we can't assist with anything less. Perhaps you want more money to pay a bill but in your fear, your soul is whispering, "Faith... cultivate your faith and you will have this and more."

So, dear ones, God does not laugh at your plans. God takes the plans of your spirit very seriously, as do your angels. We love you! We want you to have the most joyful, loving, abundant experience of life on earth possible! However, we know, that you do not enjoy these things simply by being granted material security and pleasure, but rather by finding the vibration of love from which these and all else originate. And so, we will certainly help you with your things, but even more so, we will help you find the energies, beliefs, and behaviors, that will bring you true and lasting joy.

Power within

So many of you are concerned about the state of the world. You are concerned about your peace, your safety, your economy, and your environment. You are worried that the actions of those "in power" could affect you in an adverse ways, and hopeful they will affect you in positive ways. We hear many of you asking, "What is the world coming to?" 

From our perspective, the world has always been a mixture of light and dark – truth and misunderstanding. Your earth, dear ones, is a school in which every single of one of you, without exception – no matter how dark or how light one might seem –  is attempting to find their way back to love. Earth is a classroom in which you study your greater "Self." You look in the mirrors of life around you and decide what you wish to bring to the surface. Will you choose love or fear? Will you take back your Divine power to create your life as you wish it to be, or will you give this power away to others around you?

What you see on your news today, has always been present. The only difference between now and times past is that you have access to information that was once hidden. For better or worse, you are seeing the greed, intolerance, bigotry, separation, and control dramas that have always gone on, but often in secret. Now you are given an opportunity to look at these things directly and ask yourself, "Do I wish to empower greed in my own life? Do I wish to support the vibration of intolerance? Do I wish to love or to create divisiveness, both within myself and in the outer world?"

In order to heal bigotry, stop condemning that arises within yourself. In order to heal hatred, stop the self-criticism. In order to heal greed, allow yourself abundance and be grateful.  What you want to heal on the outside, you must address at the roots, within each and every one of you. 

It does little good to hate the "haters," to be prejudiced against the "prejudice," and to condemn those who would condemn others. In judging and correcting others, you may prune the "brances" of the problem, but at the same time you are watering its vibrational "roots." 

Instead, love the light within all beings, no matter how confused or dark they may seem. Imagine fanning the flames of the Divine spark within them. Pray for their upliftment. Pray also for your own upliftment dear ones for a single soul standing in the light of love and truth is "in power" far more powerfully than an army of souls lost in darkness.

Nothing to fear

No matter what is going on in the world or in your personal life, help is always available. You are never alone. You are never without guidance and support. In each and every moment, everything you need to handle a situation in front of you, is available or given to you.

Fear is a tricky energy. Fear tries to make you imagine the worst. Fear works to convince you that you will be left alone to fend for yourself in the midst of challenges. Fear tries to make you believe that loss could be catastrophic, that your life could be ruined do to external powers, or that you could fail. 

In reality you can experience loss but it is never permanent. You can "lose" a person but you will see them again in heaven. If you are willing to develop new skills, you can even feel their spirit while you are very much alive. You can lose a house but that house lives within you, waiting to be recreated with spirit and intent. You can lose a friend, but the Divine will take the form of new friends that match your heart and vibration in this instant. You can even lose external freedoms but your freedom to be and to think independently can never be taken away.

Fear makes you believe you are at the mercy of other individuals and external powers. In truth you are only at the mercy of your own energy, for you will always receive the mirror of that energy in your physical life. If you are aligned with the Source, with love, the external world has little power over your.

Fear makes you believe you could fail. In truth, you cannot. You are unending eternal light in human form. The sun does not fail when covered by clouds. Christ on the cross did not fail to love, because the world still hates. Even if you were to make the most hideous and divisive choices here upon the earth, if you learn, you have not failed... and if you have not learned yet, you will.

Dear ones, there is nothing to fear. Love is with you. We are with you. You are spirit – light in human form, having an experience here upon the earth, trying to remember the essential truth of your being.  

In all challenges, when you don't know how to handle something God does. When you don't know what to do next, God does. When you don't know where to turn to seek help, God does. You are never ever disconnected from the source of all Love and assistance. You are never disconnected from your angels. You may not feel us, but we are always with you.

Next time you find yourself fearful, take a breath and simply ask..."What now? What next?" Trust the journey. Divine Love is leading you into a kinder existence at all times, and help is always present.

Strong in your love

Life is a choice. It was a choice you made before you were born, and a choice you make every morning when you wake up and bravely enjoy another day on your school called Earth. You chose everything about this existence for the lessons it would provide your soul. You chose your families, your country of origin, key people you wished to meet. You chose your body, your health, so many things! 

Then you surrendered into this existence you chose, hoping to remember your light, your essence and your lessons. You dove into the toughest classroom in the universe! It is there upon your earth that you can master love. If you can remember to love the light within yourself and others on earth – a planet where the illusions of separation seem so very real – then you have learned to love in a way that is deeper, stronger, and truer than anywhere else in the universe. 

You are strong if you can walk on a clear sunny day but how much stronger you have to be to walk straight in a fierce wind. You are smart if you can figure out how to get somewhere on time, but how much more clever when you do so amidst obstacles. You are strong in your love if you can love when its easy but how much more you achieve when you can love your "enemy," as the saying goes. 

Why would you want to learn to love at these levels, you ask? Why not remain comfortable in the heavens and be satisfied there? We would respond, that when, at long last, you remember that you are nothing less than one with love – and so are all others – then you will remain in the heavens or come back as an enlightened being for the sheer joy of experience and contribution. 

When you stop looking at yourself and life as flawed – when you see the beauty and perfection of it all – then life becomes heaven! The storms do not cease, but you walk strong and steady amidst them. The obstacles are not removed, but they no longer appear to be obstacles. Life becomes a dance of love. 

We wish this joy for each and every one of you - the joy of knowing that no matter what happens on earth you can embrace it like a child. You can run into the wind and find your strength. You can move easily around the obstacles in life and be proud of your cleverness. Like a child, you can love even when those around you cannot, and you can be proud of your ability to do so. 

For it is indeed, in being like a child that you enter, or rather find yourself, in the kingdom of heaven.
