Distractions are opportunities

There will always be "distractions" in your life. There will always be things you must do, that you feel keep you from creating the life of your dreams. There will always be "interruptions" in your life. There will always be things that don't look as you wish.

So how do you ever begin to accomplish your dreams, when a vast majority of your lives must be spent focusing on the "necessary" tasks of survival, and when you are not in control of the world around you? The answer is simpler than you think...

You become present to the "opportunity" to find and create love to each moment.

As you begin to seek the love in each moment, and bring love into each moment, you find that you always have the opportunity to enjoy the essence of what you are seeking. Every dream you have, every item, relationship, or situation you seek is simply a desire for a greater and greater manifestation of love in your life.

For example, say you want a house but don't know a clue how you will ever be able to afford one. You just begin to save and the car breaks down. How can this "distraction" to your savings possibly be helping you? Maybe you will need your car for another job. Maybe the car breaks now so you are not stranded later. Maybe you will be driving past the house of your dreams on the way back from the repair shop. Trust. Love that you have a car at all. Love that you have something put away to repair it. 

Instead of viewing this as a demonstration of lack and an "interruption" to your manifestation, assume, that somehow you are being given an opportunity to find abundance now, to see the good you already have in your life, and in that vibration to more easily attract your house. Perhaps you speak positively about the house you are creating when you bring your car in for repairs and someone refers you to the perfectly affordable place! By seeing this "distraction" as a vibrational "opportunity" you expand your consciousness into a loving reality which by its very nature will necessitate a house to match, at the perfect time, in the perfect way.

Suppose you want greater financial abundance in general. You begin as most humans do, by working harder, smarter, or more often. You get upset when the dishwasher breaks, the traffic is slow, someone interrupts you! You have work to do! You need to earn money! In this stressful reality, you are not even close to enjoying the energy of love and energy of abundance!

Far better to say, "Ok, I'll work harder, smarter, or more, but when I need a breather, I'll take one. When I'm interrupted I'll be honest that I have to work, or I'll enjoy the interruption. When traffic is slow or something breaks, I'll assume the universe is working on my behalf even though I cannot yet see it." In this reality, you are already abundant and you will more easily attract more!

Likewise, suppose you are looking for love. You take it upon yourself to check the dating sites frequently. You go out every weekend. You find this a chore and a bore, but all your friends tell you that you "must" do this in order to have a relationship. Suddenly life "interrupts" you. You have a hard period of time at work and you have no energy to get on the dating sites. Your friends and family need you... How are you ever supposed to find someone... 

Well dear ones, look at these "distractions" as "opportunities to shift your energy. Can you see the love? The universe may want you to rest and realize that you're burning yourself out in all areas of life. The universe may send you to be with friends so you remember what real love feels like. The universe may be calling upon you to learn better boundaries so you can actually enjoy the right relationship and avoid the wrong ones. 

There are any number of reasons life "interrupts" you, but always, these "interruptions" are opportunities to find greater love, to give thanks for the abundance life is offering you already, to practice more loving behaviors towards yourself...

If you practice seeing the "distractions in life" not as "distractions" but simply as "life trying to love you" then you will find that these are opportunities to shift your energy, and therefore, they are part of the very dream you are creating!

Creating change

As Autumn arrives in the northern hemisphere and Spring in the southern, it is time for change. There have been great periods of stagnation in the previous years, but now everything is moving! Everything is ripe for transformation! You are all stirred up dear ones! Celebrate. It in in the stirring of the old that the new can arise. Nothing can transform in your world without going through change... and most of you are yearning for change.

You yearn for change in things great and small. You want to clean out your closets, update your wardrobe, stop doing those little habits that drive you crazy. You want to clean out your psyche, update your relationships, and stop participating in the bigger patterns of behavior and in events, organizations, even conversations that no longer uplift your soul.

You are yearning to become more authentic.

You are yearning to live lives centered in love.

You are yearning to "be you" so the world can see you and love you for all that you truly are.

Dear ones, it is no longer time to put things off. If you want change in your life, take a small step. If you want to clean out your closet, begin today. If you want to update your wardrobe, save a little today or start to manifest. If you want to stop a little habit, put signs up around your house, program your phones to remind your or get a friend to help you out.

If you want to clear out your psyche, watch only positive programs. Read only uplifting and inspiring material. For every negative thing you catch yourself saying, ask for something positive... "Dear God I cannot stand the news... Please uplift our world." "Dear God I cannot stand that human being. Please amplify the light in their soul." "Dear God I do not like the way I look today. Please help me see the beauty and light within."  

Take inventory dear ones. What is authentic for you and what is no longer "you?" Everything in your life suited you at one time or it would not be there, but you change and eventually everything in your life changes to suit you better as well. Begin making even the simplest changes in the areas of your life that no longer suit you. One tiny movement a day is enough to help you step into streams of grace.  

Dear ones, celebrate! While your world is stirred up and many of you are stirred up, there is great opportunity here to ride the waves of love into a life that you love!

What must you release

Stand tall! Be proud of who you are. You are light. You are love.The world does not act as if this is the case, but it is truth. You are unique, special, precious, perfect, expressions of one love, as surely as a there are millions of forms that water can take.

Not a single one of you ever has to feel ashamed of who you are. Not a single one of you needs to hang your head in embarrassment for being yourself. You will say and do things that aren't your best at times. You will feel awkward at times. You will feel unloving at times. You will feel unloved. Nonetheless, we know who you are. You are divine beings, crafted lovingly in the "vibrational image and likeness of God." 

As many of you enter your season of autumn, ask yourself, "What thoughts must I release in order to reveal my magnificence?" Do you have to release the thought that you never do anything "big" or "special." Each breath is big, dear ones. Each word that comes lovingly out of your lips is special.  Do you have to release the thought that you are not as beautiful as you truly are? Not a single wildflower in the valley or tree in the forest would ever think to compare itself to others. You are beautiful. Period. Vow to release thoughts to the contrary. Do you have to release the thought that you have failed in any way? You cannot fail dear ones! You can only learn, grow, and have experiences here upon the earth. 

As surely as water is special in all forms, beautiful in all forms, never fails in any form... so too you are special, beautiful, and cannot fail.  

Dear ones release yourselves from the lies you have been told about what makes you lovable and what does not. You are lovable. You beloved. You are, in your essence, only love.

Vow to love yourself

If you could love yourselves, your real selves, then most of you would find yourself living a vastly different and more beautiful life. Self-Love, as we speak of it, is not simply "feeling good" about yourself. It is not feeling as if you are better than anyone else. It is not simply doing nice things for yourself. It is, instead, being willing to acknowledge the light of Divinity within you... no matter what.

Self love allows you to receive our help. Self love places you in an energy field of truth, in which the Creator and your angels have the ability to assist you. Self love makes you desire to be kind to others and compassionate even to those who hurt you. 

When you give yourself the love you are seeking you do not depend on others to do it for you. When you acknowledge your own divine spark in even your darkest times, you can acknowledge it in others, even when they are in the depths of their own darkness. When you see who and what you truly are, you will not allow yourself to be in unkind circumstances for long... for you will know your power to create change and you will know that the entire universe is behind you.

Dear ones, make a vow to love yourself all the days of your life! Make a commitment to love yourself even when you are not feeling proud of your looks, your thoughts, your life... for in those cases, you need extra compassion, extra reminders of the truth. Make a commitment to love yourself even when others don't... and from this energy you will find that loving, guided action will always emerge.

We love you. We know who and what you are. You are nothing less than sparks of Divinity who come and take on a human form because you've forgotten this truth. Upon your earth you seek to remember, to re-experience the beauty, the love, the grace that lives inside you. You can choose to embrace the truth inside... even when you don't feel it, and in so doing, you will quickly return to love.

Afraid? Ask for help

You are all in need of rest. While many of you require physical rest, the rest we are speaking of here is the relaxation of the mind. We know that your world appears to be in chaos. Political unrest, economic uncertainty, storms, health issues, etc. are stirring up the hearts and minds of many... however, if you rest in the truth of the love that sources your very being, then in spite of the world, you can be at peace. You can truly learn to exist, "in the world, but not of it."

When your minds begin to race ahead, and you find yourself worrying about what might happen, what should happen, what could happen, stop yourself. Ask yourself instead, "What is happening right now, within me, in this very moment." The answer might be very simple. "I am afraid. I am not sure what is to come. I am not secure in knowing I will be able to handle the economy / my health / some other situation / etc. I don't feel safe in my life, or upon this earth. I am afraid God. I am afraid dear angels. I need truth. I need comfort." 

In this fashion, dear ones, you open yourself to receiving love. You become as a child, asking to be reassured, comforted, and guided. Even in this admission that you are afraid, and that you want truth, you are opening to the possibility that love is there for you. Indeed it is, always has been, and always will be.

Go into your hearts. Find what is there, and in so doing, you will give your mind rest. Once the heart is in charge, the mind must relax. Admit your concerns to the angels, to heaven. Then stop. Breathe deeply. Ask to be comforted, reassured, and guided. Listen to the still small voice, the gentle urgings, the feelings within. They are the voices of love.

We are here for you, dear ones. In a world that appears to be in chaos, there is always greater order emerging. We see this. We know this. We can help you become immune to the fear and chaos. The deeper you open to receive love, the more you open to truth that lies inside of you. You are a healthy, happy, abundant soul whose light is so much stronger, more radiant, than any of the world's chaos. You can live "in the world but not of it" but as we have repeated many times, it is important that you "be as a child to enter the kingdom of heaven." 

Come to us, not simply asking for worldly solutions, but also, more importantly, asking us to help comfort, reassure, and guide you. When you feel only love, the fear-based problems of this world cannot touch you. Relax your minds by dropping into your hearts and inviting us to assist. Rest in the knowing that you are, and always will be, resting in the heart of the Divine.

Deeper solutions

The entire universe is in a beautifully orchestrated vibrational dance. At all times you are drawing opportunities to see both your amazing beauty and magnificence, and to see areas in which perhaps you have denied this light and love from surfacing. in all things, you are seeking to know your deepest and truest self – the light of Divinity that lives within you. 

From our perspective all your challenges in life originate from this desire to know your connection to the Source. If you are presented with concerns about money, you seek to remember that you are supported by the love that made you. If you are presented with someone who is ill-tempered, you seek to remember that both you and others are worthy of love. If you are presented with a health challenge, you seek to remember the love that lives within you.

So next time you face a life challenge, instead of searching for the normal, human causes – the person who took your money, the unwise investment, the ill tempered co-worker or relative, the thing you ate, did or didn't do – try something different.

Ask yourself instead... "Dear Divine light within me... What am I seeking to remember through this situation? How am I seeking love?" The answers to those questions are the deeper answers to the situation or challenge.

Suppose for example you must work with a very unpleasant individual, and you ask yourself these two questions. Perhaps you are seeking to remember that you are worthy of love and therefore must have boundaries. Perhaps you are seeking to remember that others are hurting and worthy of love, to not take this person's behavior personally, and to show them mercy and compassion. Perhaps you are seeking to remember that you have choices, and it is time for a new job. If you ask the deeper questions, dear ones, you will receive the deeper, more meaningful, and more long-lasting answers to your life's challenges.

Love now = love later

You live in a fast-paced society which bombards you at every turn with a sense of urgency. “Act now!” “Don’t miss out!” “Time is money!” Unlike your ancestors, you live in a state of almost constant stress, perpetuated by the notion that you could possibly ever run out of time.

In past generations, people lived in synchronization with nature. They awakened with the sunrise, and went to bed shortly after sunset. They slowed down to talk with other human beings. They knew death was inevitable and that they might as well enjoy their lives. They lived in accordance with their natural rhythms.

Now, however you live in accordance with unnatural rhythms. You are conditioned to believe death is the enemy rather than simply a doorway through which you pass on your journey through eternity. The clock becomes your dictator, and “how much you pack into a day" becomes your measure of success.

In truth, you only have now. Make it the most loving "now" you can imagine. Slow down. Even if you like moving quickly, slow your mind down to be focused in the present moment. 

When you savor the moment, you attract grace, ease, and synchronicity. When you bring love to your “now" you can’t help but attract more love “later.” 

Look at what causes you to rush through your days. Look at what makes you feel urgent. Is it a feeling that something bad will happen if you do not accomplish what you wish? Is it a feeling that you’ll have failed if you don’t accomplish all you wish? Is it a feeling that you’re worthless if you don’t get something done?

In truth only good can come of enjoying the moment. Trust that. In truth you cannot ever fail God. In truth you are never worthless. No matter what you do or don’t accomplish you are eternal, endless love having a human experience. 
Enjoy your moments, dear friends, and you will enjoy your life. 

As we have said so many times, What you accomplish matters far less than the love with which you do it. If you were to prioritize having a loving moment – one after the next – you would enjoy your life so thoroughly, that you would never have to worry about what you've accomplished!
