Open to the flow

Understand that humanity is in a time of tremendous growth and change. You are all learning to surrender more and to trust that God reveals Himself to each one of you in the murmurings of your own hearts. Rather than worrying about life, worrying about survival, worrying about bills, turn your sights to things more productive - like being a loving human being, a kind human being, a light amidst the darkness.

When you feel the most lack, give a little of your talents and you will open up new avenues of income. When you feel the most lonely, reach out to someone in need, unclog the energetic 'pipes' of the heart and you will experience the love of God that flows through you to the one you've embraced. When you feel the most fear, comfort another and in doing so you will find peace.

The energies of God flow to you, through you, and from you out into the world. You must be willing to receive and willing to share in order to truly experience the flow of grace in your life. Share who you are with the world. We are not asking you to share anything you don't have, dear ones, but your love is free. Your resources flow more smoothly when they are not hoarded. Your words of kindness don't cost a cent and yet they are priceless gifts you share with one another. This is the feeling of abundance you seek - the ability to share love with the world, share your talents and your gifts with the world, and to know that they exist within you in unlimited stores.

This feeling of richness, is truly what magnetizes all you need back into your life. You can't fake it. You can't pretend to feel it. You must embrace that there is love to give within you. There are words of kindness to share. There are talents to be expressed. In doing so you won't have to strive to feel abundant because you will come to know that you already are.

Rest and recreation

God supports you dear ones. Even when you don't know how to achieve a goal, God does. Even when you don't know how to pay a bill, God does. Even when you don't know how to protect your children, God already knows they are His first.

All the answers, all the guidance lie within. However, there are times when you will not receive guidance and rather than driving yourselves crazy with worry, sit quietly and instead ask a different question. "God, I am not receiving guidance towards my prayers and my goals. Is there anything you want me to do today or is it in your hands?" Ask this dear ones. If you receive no answer, then trust that today God is handling your prayers.

So many of you worry so much about missing your guidance, but if you pray with sincerity, listen in silence, and honor your hearts, you won't miss any of the messages that God intends for you. God, dear ones, has ways of making sure you will get His messages. The question is never whether or not you will receive the message. The question is whether or not you will listen. If the answer to your question, "God what should I do today to further my prayers?" is nothing - silence - then dear ones, there is nothing you need to be concerned about today.

Instead, take time in your spare time to relax and refill your spirit. Time for relaxation, play, and recreation is absolutely necessary. Recreation dear ones, allows RE-Creation to occur.

When you allow yourselves the time to refresh and replenish your spirit you are in the present, less worried, and more aligned with the higher vibrations of peace and joy. When you allow yourselves recreation you are, in a sense, getting your worry out of the way and allowing God to solve the problems in your lives. You are surrendering to your hearts. You are surrendering to joy. You are surrendering to the natural childlike qualities of innocence, trust, and adventure. You are opening to life.

Recreation and rest, dear friends, need not occur on a faraway beach, and they need not involve expensive toys. You did not require more than your imaginations to play and enliven your spirit as a child. You can sit on your couch or lie in your bed and travel with your imagination to faraway places. You can daydream of the adventures you wish to live out some day. You can spin fantastic fantasies while talking with friends.

Recreation, whether real or imagined, is priceless to the soul. It is the time in which you allow your minds to rest, your hearts to be filled, and God to work His magic in your lives.

Earth needs your peace. Earth needs your joy. Earth needs you to fill your spirit so you can help others up rather than being mired down in the worlds fears. Far from being a waste of time, recreation is to your spirit the same as putting gas in your vehicles. Fill your souls dear ones, then spill this joy over into a world that needs to imagine a greater way of being.

Challenges are occasions to grow

Breathe and know that although life often presents unexpected challenges, these are simply occasions to grow. As human beings you have a tendency to think you have done something wrong when life isn't working as you please, or perhaps someone else has wronged you. While you may perceive this to be true at one level of awareness, in the greater scheme of things life is just being life. You are being the best you can be in any given moment, and believe it or not, so is everyone else. We are not saying you are all being the best you can potentially be, but you are being the best you that you can access in any given moment.

When life is not going the way you would wish it, resist the urge to beat yourself up, or to assign blame to another, for this is pointless and simply creates more chaos. Rather, bless the mess and acknowledge the moment. Sit and breathe slowly and deeply. Ask the angels to help you access a peaceful vibration once again, and then get on in the very next moment with life. We understand this is not always easy, and yet this will help you avoid creating further chaos and drama when something does not go as planned. This will enable you to learn the lesson, receive your guidance on the next best step, and proceed with a happier existence. In other words, "Don't let the devil get you down," and when we speak this way we refer to the energies inside of each of you that would fall into the illusions of separation, chaos, and drama.

God loves you dear ones, no matter what. If you can choose to love yourselves and have compassion for others, even the bumps in life will pass by you very quickly and you will find yourselves once again on a peaceful pathway.

The greatest gift is you

The greatest gift you can give the earth dear friends is your authentic expression. Do not judge your inner reactions to people, situations, opportunities, etc. because these give clues to the truth God has planted in your hearts. Honor this truth impeccably and your life will flow with greater ease. Suppose you are in a job that you can't stand. You feel grateful to have a job and yet you want a new one. This is your truth. Now you know how to pray, "Dear God I am grateful for my income but I would like a new job that not only pays the bills but honors my spirit as well. Make any changes necessary be easy and graceful according to your will."

So many of you have been raised to think you can have this or that, one thing or the other, but God dear ones, has elegant solutions to all your problems - solutions that satisfy all the deep and true desires of your heart. Suppose you want a relationship to work but the other person doesn't want to work with you. You really wish you could work things out with this particular individual but you also want a kinder existence. Start there. This is your truth. Pray, "Dear God, I want this relationship to be healed and if it cannot be for any reason gently guide me to the love I seek. Do so in a manner that is loving and kind with perfect timing for all involved."

This year more than ever before it is important to deal with not only the realities in front of you but to also acknowledge the entirety of the reality in your heart. So many times you want something that simply isn't happening and so you remain stuck - you want a job that honors your spirit and yet your coworkers aren't changing, so you do nothing except slip into negativity and despair. A simple prayer and intention that either the job change or you be allowed to change in a graceful manner will acknowledge your truth and set the universal laws in motion.

Acknowledge your hearts dear ones. Don't lie to yourselves. Don't say something is acceptable when it is not. YES, you are in a situation for now, for a reason. You are learning to love without condition. You are learning to see the bright souls even within the densest of behaviors. And yet, this year more than ever before, it is important to start with love and acknowledgment for the truth that is planted in your own hearts. Suppose your prayers are answered with a new job opportunity. You leave your present situation and all of the sudden the unappreciative boss and coworkers must do the work that you used to do. Now they are blessed with the lessons of greater compassion and understanding.

Suppose you want a long term relationship but it becomes apparent that the person you are dating is not the one for you. Yet you enjoy their company and don't want to be alone every weekend. What do you do? You become honest dear ones. You say to this soul, "I enjoy your company very much and would like to continue to see you when you have time, and yet I am feeling that this is not destined for marriage, and I simply want to be honest with you. I am going to open my heart to others and give you permission to do the same." And then, dear ones, you trust God.

The only reason you are not impeccably honest with yourselves and others is because you do not yet truly understand the magnitude of God's love for you. When you do what is right for yourself, by asking God to help you in creating what is truly in your heart, God will always serve the good of all souls involved. God loves all equally dear ones. Your deep and true desires are your clues as to where in the great universal flow God wishes you to aim your spirit.

Trust this dear ones. Trust God. Do your part. Do what you know to do when you are creating change. But then when you do not know what is next, surrender, wait, be patient, and trust that the next step will be revealed. It always will - in perfect timing.

Relax and enjoy life now

Relax! There is nothing to worry about. God is with you at all times. When life does not appear to be moving as you wish it would, stop, breathe, relax, and ask God what he wants you to do. Wait until you receive an answer. The answer might surprise you. "Rest my child. Seek out a friend. Start a hobby. Open your mouth and talk with a stranger. Go have a drink of water. Organize your closet. Nap..." It is important to listen to this inner voice and trust it. Don't worry about why you are receiving the guidance you are, just ask yourself if it feels right to YOU and then if it does, go forward and listen. If guidance does not feel right to you, this is probably just the voice of fear, ego, upbringing, etc. Guidance will always resonate with you. You may think to yourself, "That's too simple. That's too obvious. That isn't something I would have ever thought to do," and yet the guidance will fee intriguing, comfortable, or right.

Listen to this voice of God within you dear ones and you will simplify your lives. You will still required faith, patience, and trust, but you will learn to slow down and embrace the moment, one moment at a time. You will learn that God cares about your happiness right now. God does not want you to wait until the bills are paid, the children are grown, and the projects are completed to be happy. God wants to help you find happiness right now, in this moment. Relax, breathe, ask for guidance. Your training would have you believe that you must be in motion at all times, and yet dear ones there are cycles in your life of rest, cycles of passion and great movement, and cycles of letting go. Wherever you find yourself, embrace it. Embrace your need to rest when rest is calling. Embrace the need to get in motion when the desire strikes. Embrace the need to let go when something no longer fulfills your spirit or assists in your joyful growth. Life happens now dear ones, and again now... Don't miss your lives while striving and waiting for the future. Enjoy them right now. Listen to your guidance right now... and as you do, a kinder, gentler, and easier future will emerge.
