Look to the light

In the dark of night a lamp burned brightly. Centuries ago, a star twinkled in the darkness. Those who focused on fear felt the darkness. Those who focused on the lamp felt the light. Those how focused on the star found light, hope and inspiration for their lives. Those who focused only upon the dark of night missed the miracle that would give hope to countless generations throughout history.

Even today, focusing on the light in any given situation in your life is what allows you to access love and miracles. Focusing on the darkness brings you only more. 
If you seek it, you can find the "burning lamp," the "babe in the manger," or the "guiding star "in any situation? You can look for the love right here, right now, regardless of circumstance.
We never dignify the darkness by focusing upon it. We see only the light and love trying to emerge in any given situation. As we look at the unkind behaviors of so many, we see wounded children inside them crying for love. As we look at the impoverished we see souls striving to find an abundance of love in spite of their circumstance. As we look at the wars and division in your world, we see souls trying to bring their truth to the surface who simply do not yet know how to kindly sort themselves out.

As you focus on the light in any given situation you see it, experience it, and move towards greater light.

For example, in your world today there are a great many stories of abuse coming to the surface.  It is a time when the feminine energy is rising up saying, "I want the true masculine, the protector, the do-er, not the oppressor or the abuser." This is true whether it is a woman on the news speaking up about a man who abused her, or a man quietly sitting at home, unable to cry because his angry mother bullied or abused him. The energies within are not necessarily tied to gender. 

When you see these stories on the news you have choice. You can focus on the dark or the light. You can say, "How horrible! How could they do this! Crucify him!" Or you could say, "Handle this situation so it is not repeated, by all means, but dear God please uplift these sad and hurting souls that thought it was OK to abuse another human being. Please uplift and heal the ones who were abused. Dear God heal all hurting hearts." 

You can turn to the light and give thanks that what was once "acceptably hidden" is now coming to light so that hearts, and systems, can heal. 

This is why so many of you love the holidays
. They give you a time with plenty of permission to be focused upon the light and love and goodness in the world; a time of being kind; a time of being generous, a time to give and receive, and a time to help one another. This season is a time when Love is allowed to shine more clearly into the world than usual. It is a time, every year, to celebrate the rebirth of light in a world that sometimes forgets.

So during the holidays and indeed all year long, look for the light in the darkness. Seek it, see it, and be it. In doing so you will live a light-filled, delightful life!

Meet life as it is

In this season of love and light, we know that there are many of you who also experience the holidays as a season of loss, loneliness, or lack.Anytime there are such massive expectations of how life "should" look, these will, by their very nature, highlight the contrasts. 

If the holidays "should" be a time of family and friends, but they are not, you will have a tendency to feel as if something is wrong. If the holidays should be a time of giving but you can't afford gifts, you might feel a sense of lack. 

It is in releasing expectations, and facing the present moment with all the love and light in your heart, that you can find joy amidst loss, loneliness, or lack. If you feel a sense of loss, by facing the present bravely you will see all that you do have. If you feel a sense of loneliness, and face the present you will see all out there who are in need of love and in volunteering, or assisting others you will soothe your own loneliness. If you feel a sense of lack, it is in facing the present that you can look inside of yourself and find the gifts you do have to offer – the ones that don't cost a dime.

The holidays, or any time of year, are enjoyed so much more easily when you face life as it is, when you look inside yourself, as you are, and when you accept those two things first, then asking yourself, "How can I bring more love into my life? How can I share love with life?" 

Perhaps by offering to walk a friend's dog a few times next year you will connect with other human beings whom you might not have met! Perhaps by making a jar filled with little pieces of paper containing wishes for a friend, you will feel the light of the season rushing through you and, in this positive vibration, enjoy your own miracles. Perhaps by sitting quietly and remembering all the good times with a loved one who has transitioned, you will be in a space to connect with them and feel their continuing presence around you.

Dear ones, release your expectations of yourself and life. Enjoy the holidays and every day as a simple, loving dance with life. 
This is our holiday recipe for happiness:
Come as you are. Meet life as it is. Add love.

The holiday light

In the midst of the darkness, many centuries ago, there came a great light. A humble child was born in a manger embodied a love so pure and surrendered to a light so bright that it forever changed and elevated the vibration of humanity.

Each of you remembers this light. Each of you longs for this light. Each one of you is birthed from this light, and each of you celebrates this light when you find it birthed within your own lives.

You feel this light in every kind word and ever thoughtful gesture. You see this light in the eyes of every baby who looks upon the world with wonder. You feel this light in your own hearts when you extend compassion to a fellow human being. You channel this light when you feel the currents of love and appreciation running through you, and every time you share a loving word or gesture with one another.

This light lives in you. You, are the manger in which the light is born over and over again. You are the lamps that never extinguish. You are spirit of the season and your light is present all year long.

So as you embark on your holiday season, be the lights of the world.When you shop for presents, shop with love. When you make a gift, hold it to your heart and fill it with love. When you bake, bake with love. When you share with a charity, do so with love. When you leave your milk and cookies for Santa, know that you are leaving an offering of love for the spirit of love and generosity itself. When you can sit for a moment, ask to be filed with heavenly peace, and to feel find the presence of the silent night within your own quietly beating heart.

We wish you a season filled with peace, joy, wonder, and most of all, the beautiful light birthed within you, shining forth into a world in need.

Embracing peace for the holiday

As you enter your holiday season, start each day with a little affirmation of truth. Upon awakening, breathe deeply. As you do so, say to yourself:

I breathe in the light that I am. 
I breathe in the peace that I am.
I breathe in the love that I am.

I am a magnificent creation, creating a magnificent day.
I create the most loving day I can possibly imagine.
I create grace, ease, and joy today.

I am nothing less than love.
I am so deeply, dearly loved.


Breathe. Allow your body to be filled with love, light, and peace. Now, go about your day recalling this feeling often.

No matter how much you wish to accomplish or how many obligations you have, you are in charge of your own energy. You can attune to peace and allow your days to flow smoothly, productively, and with grace, or you can get caught up in the holiday frenzy. Bring the light of peace into your hearts. Stop frequently throughout your day and breathe it in.

We wish you a joyous and peaceful holiday season, filled with the spirit of love, giving, and grace.

Give thanks for the future

As so many of you celebrate your holiday of Thanksgiving, we in the heavens give thanks for each and every one of you. We celebrate your existence. We cheer you onward. We gently guide you towards a more loving, more abundant, and more joyous existence. We comfort you, strengthen you, and help refresh your spirit while you sleep. 

Dear ones, we are ever grateful for each and every one of you because we know, here in the heavens, that we are all connected and sourced from One love. In our deepest essence, you and we are One. The love you feel, we feel as well.

We give thanks not only for the good that is happening in your lives now but also for the good you intend to have in your future. We give thanks for your perfect health, whether you are experiencing it or not. We give thanks for your abundance whether or not you are currently feeling lack. We give thanks for your loving, harmonious relationships whether they have arrived in your current reality or not.

As we focus with gratitude upon that which you desire, we support it coming into being. As you focus with gratitude on that which you desire, you too support it coming into your future. So give thanks for that which you have not yet received because it exists right here and now in potential. Why not turn your focus upon it with love. 

"Dear Divine Source, thank you so much for my abundant loving life. I know I am experiencing loneliness and lack right now but I know you have so much more in store for me! "

"Dear Divine Source, thank you for my dream home! I know I live in a very small place right now but all things are possible with you and I eagerly await the unfolding and miracles."

"Dear Divine Source, thank you for my perfect health and well-being which I know is emerging even now beneath the illusions of illness."

"Dear Divine Source, thank you for my glorious life for I know as I focus upon it, it shall come into being."


There is nothing more powerfully creative than focusing with love and gratitude on that which you desire, giving thanks, knowing it is on the way.

Dear ones we give thanks for you, and for the perfectly beautiful lives that each and everyone of your souls is dreaming for you in the depths of your heart.

The value of differences

There is, deep within human hearts, a deep desire for unity. Deep down, you all have a desire to connect in a loving and meaningful way. At times it seems like a dream to find this union with all the diverse and conflicting opinions upon your planet earth. However, unity never requires sameness, never requires similarity, and has never even asked for agreement. 

As children you were fascinated by differences. You loved meeting people who looked different, or acted differently. You were curious. You learned something new with every new encounter. When someone believed something different than you, you asked with genuine interest, “Why?”  You listened, decided if the other perspective resonated with you, and then either engaged in the dialogue further or walked away. You were students of life, learning about others and yourselves at the same time.

Somewhere along the way however, you metaphorically “ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil,” and you began to evaluate the different perspectives as right and wrong. 

You began to judge others and you began to judge yourselves. You began to argue, to try to convince others to agree, and many of you began to attempt to change yourselves to "fit in." You were never meant to "fit in" in the sense of being the same. You were meant instead, like a piece of a puzzle, to take your place as a unique and precious part of creation.

So rather than fearing or judging the differences in yourself and others, explore them. Rather than arguing with anyone, simply own your own point of view, and seek to understand that of others. Agree to disagree and if someone cannot allow you the same, walk away. Let your silence speak more powerfully than your words.

It is because of your differences that the human race continues to function, evolve, and grow. Your differences help you examine new perspectives. Your differences expose you to thoughts and ideas that you might never have considered. Your differences cause you to look deeper for what you have in common and to discover how you can all benefit from one another's strengths.

If all the cells in the human body were the same, you would not be you. There is great unity in their diversity as they cooperate to create the miracle that you are. Likewise there can be great unity among humanity if each of you simply finds your place and point of view and allows others to do the same.

Be Gentle with Yourself

Be gentle with yourselves. Speak to yourself with words of compassion, tenderness, and love. Be as kind to yourself as you would to a little child, for in truth that innocent child lives within you.

Gently strive to stop putting yourselves down, criticizing yourselves, or being harsh in speaking about yourself. 
Take time to check in during the day and ask yourself if you are meeting your own needs. Give yourself the acknowledgment, love, and adoration that you seek from others. Become your own greatest lover, for in that space you will attract love in every area of your life.

So many of you learned to be harsh with yourselves. It is not natural. 
Innocent children speak their minds and feel their feelings without any shame whatsoever. They share their strengths with joy, and happily admit their weak points, knowing that they are perfect exactly as they are. In fact, very young children don’t strive to be perfect. They don’t strive to be anything other than who and what they are in each moment.
Can you imagine saying, "I’m good at reading but not very good at math" – making a simple accurate statement, while knowing that neither of these change your intrinsic value and worth? Nothing, in fact, ever changes your intrinsic value and worth. Hold your head high and know that nothing less than the love that creates universes lives and abides in you and through you.

We know you’ve been hurt 
by others, but as you read our words, no one is hurting you in this moment. We know you’ve been treated less than lovingly by many throughout the course of your life, but that is no excuse to treat yourself with less than love. We know you’ve learned self-criticism, but you can break any habit if you remain dedicated to doing so.
Dear ones, in our eyes you are perfect light and love, simply having an experience upon your earth. You could never ever become anything less. Be kind to yourselves, for in so doing, you are honoring the Love that lives within.
