Focus on what you want

While your world is in chaos you can choose peace. While many are in fear you can choose faith. While some cry, "What is this world coming to?" you can speak truth and share that this so-called chaos is a necessary, albeit painful for some, balancing of priorities upon your planet earth.

When you find yourself facing a challenge, focus on the outcome you do want rather than fearing the one you don't. Ask God to help you learn the lessons you are undertaking in the kindest and most gentle way possible, so you can move forward. And then dear ones, spend time in silence, drop into your hearts and ask yourself, "What does my heart of hearts truly want at this time in my life? God, what do you want for me right now?" Then go deeper and ask again until you strike up on truth. When you feel the truth, your body will relax, your emotions will calm. Something within you will say, "YES! This is what my soul wants now. This is what God wants for me now. This feels right. This is not a superficial answer but rather the deepest truth within me at this given moment in time.

For example, you might ask this question and find that your first answer is "I want money to pay the bills," but upon deeper inspection you may discover that you want your entire life to change so you have a career that supports your heart and your desire to serve. At this point you may have no clue how to create a career that satisfies you soul. You may not even know what that is. However, by simply acknowledging and admitting the truth - first to yourself and then God - you set the wheels in motion to carry you forward into a new reality. Here is where you surrender to your own heart. Here is where you surrender to God. If instead, you decide that you cannot possibly ever have a career that satisfies your soul, simply because you do not yet know how to create one, then you negate the truth that God has planted within you. The seed of truth falls upon rocky soil and cannot grow. If this seed falls into a heart willing to open to truth, to water with tears at times, and to allow GOD to be the gardener of your life and to guide you, then this seed will grow into a whole new life for you - a life of wonder, of joy, of expression.

Suppose you ask the question and the answer returns, "I want a relationship." That could be your deepest truth if you are already existing in a state of bliss and joy, fulfillment and expression, and simply want to share your adventures with another. However, if you want a relationship to fix some feelings inside of yourself or to entertain you when you are alone, go deeper, for these expectations when placed upon another inevitably create discontent. Perhaps you want to deepen your self love or your relationship with God so you can feel good about yourself and your connection with life - so you don't expect another to do that for you. Perhaps you want to connect with your own passion so you can create more joy in your life, that can then be shared with another. Perhaps you want the companionship of others of like mind and heart so you can feel part of a community wherein you can meet the various social needs of your spirit.

When you find the truth within yourself dear ones, admit it, first to yourself and God. This is surrendering to the heart. This is surrendering to the truth God has placed within you. And in doing so, you begin a process of surrender to God in which He can begin to fulfill His plans for your life, you joy, and your beautiful blossoming into the whole, happy, and fulfilled souls that you truly are within. It is the time of blossoming. And God is the gardener who wishes for all your hearts to bloom into their grand and glorious expression.
