Movement from the inside out

Understand that in this year of movement and change, it is especially important to allow your feelings to move within you. So many of you have been going strong for so long, that you need to stop, rest, breathe, and feel your hearts deeply. Graceful movement in your outer life is always a reflection of honoring the movements inside of you.

For example, so many of you want change but won't slow down to explore the changes in your own hearts. Maybe there are some tears in there that need to come to the surface so you can be free of old sadnesses and move forward into joy. Maybe there are some old fears that need to be expressed so you can seek the comfort of other nurturing human beings. Maybe there are some old frustrations that will teach you more about what you do want to create. Maybe there is passion within you longing to be expressed in some form of art, service, writing, business, or expression with another. Dear ones, take the time to sit still, in silence, and breathe deeply. Look inside your heart and ask it what expression and movement it seeks right now, in this movement...what feeling does it feel right now - in this moment. What expression does it want you to give - in this moment - to the world around you.

Search inside always first for the movement there, and then dear ones, you will unclog the channels that allow God to fill your heart with joy, and as if river rushes through you this love will inspire and propel you into action in your outer life as well - graceful, guided, and joyful action. Trust yourselves dear ones. You do not have to push the river; in fact it is better not to do so.

If you are already in a phase of movement and change in your outer world, we still ask you to take the time to search your hearts and give them expression. Maybe you are changing jobs, moving, or creating new relationships. Feel your hearts. Feel both the flutters of old fears and the flutters of new excitment. Express both to those around you. Trust dear ones that as you reach deep within and bring this movement and expression from your hearts into your outer lives, all answers will come to you. As you share your heart with those around you, you will assist them in opening their's. As you share your concerns, others will offer suggestions that you can sort through to see if any resonate with you. As you share your passions and your joys, you inspire others to do the same. Don't hide your beautiful light dear friends, no matter how it is currently moving within you. All movement in the heart, be it sadness, frustration, passion, or unabashed joy is still the love of God moving within you and seeking expression in your world.

All movement leads to greater love. Trust in that. An acorn wishes to grow into an oak that wishes to bear acorns. You too exist within endless cycles of growth and change. Allow the feelings to move naturally from within, express them kindly and then gracefully into your outer life, and in doing so you will find find the peace you are seeking, and live according to a natural rhythm in harmony with the universe that God created just for you.
