Be in the moment

As so many of you have noticed, time seems to by flying by in your world. Dear ones, time has not changed or speeded up, but rather the amount you must fit in the same twenty four hour day has drastically increased over the years. One hundred years ago, you would get up with the sunrise, eat a healthy breakfast, go to work or manage the house, eat dinner with the family, and then relax in the evenings, before retiring for a good night's sleep. Life was slower and more satisfying. Relationships were conducted face to face and there was no such thing as calling someone in your car, or answering emails. And while, we in the heavens, love your modern technology because it does indeed help you connect with your world, acknowledge the fact that you are one human race, and communicate very nicely with one another, ask yourselves... are you the servant or the master of the tools you use, the systems you embrace, and the activities that you choose to engage in? Are you running your life, or is your life running you? Do you own your possessions, or do your possessions own you? These are good questions to contemplate as you strive to figure out what is of true value in your life, and what truly gives you joy and feelings of aliveness.

This is why your time seems to be flying by so quickly dear ones - because many of you fill your lives with things you think you must have or do, and you forget to enjoy them, thereby missing the moments, and missing the quality in your lives. If you must work to live, engage in your work, be present to the people around you and rather than seeing your co-workers and bosses as adversaries, see them as people, just like you, with the same hopes, fears, and dreams. Be the light that you are at work, and you will light up your entire workplace.

If you must run errands or drive children to and fro, be present to your errands, or your children. Engage in the moment, rather than thinking about what is next. Truly dear ones, your presence will make you more efficient, give you greater satisfaction, and allow you to find the most joyful path to the next moment.

Suppose for example, you are 'stuck' in line at the grocery store, tapping your foot impatiently, thinking of the next ten errands you must run, and feeling quite irritable. Dear ones, this not the vibration you wish to use to pave the path for the rest of your day! Be pleasant to the people in line. Smile, talk, engage in life and you never know - you might learn something, meet a friend, be gifted with a piece of information you needed, or even meet the love of your life. Certainly you will feel better and send a vibration of love out to pave the way for the rest of your day. Missing the moments, means missing the magic in life. Avoiding being present means you will not receive the presents that each moment has to offer you.

Suppose you feel you must have something in your home to make you happy. By all means, dear ones go get it if you can afford it, but if getting that 'thing' means creating a financial burden, or creating maintenance that will take too much of your time, ask yourself, "Is this really going to make me happier?" Avoiding wishful thinking and allowing yourself to be with the reality of a purchase means that you will own your possessions rather than allowing them to own you. Likewise, look around your homes. Get rid of the things you are not loving, not using, and those things that no longer serve you. The material world was meant to serve YOU dear ones; you were never intended to serve it.

So in these final days of winter, as time seems to fly, slow down. Be in the moment you are in. Embrace it. Bring as much love and positive energy to it as possible. In this fashion you will live your lives, savor your moments, and pave your future with a kind and loving vibration. Do not throw seeds of weeds out in front of you dear ones with negativity, worry, and upset. Instead plant seeds of kindness, love, well being, gratitude, abundance, and joy to pave your future pathways. This dear ones, is the kindest and most gentle way to live your lives and allow your own spirits to truly blossom.

The answers are already there

So many of you are waiting for God to tell you what to do with your lives, and yet dear ones, you can find the answers right within your own heart. What is it you want to do? What is it you want to create? You may have very big dreams, such as I want to help end world hunger, or create a big vacation, or have the relationship of my dreams. Or your immediate dreams may be quite small - you may want a wonderful sandwich for lunch at a price you can easily afford. Whatever your dreams, focus there with what is in your heart. Give your dreams and desires acknowledgement, dear friends, for no wish, no dream, is frivolous in the eyes of God. If you want the sandwich it is because you want to take care of both your body and your finances. If you want the vacation it is because your soul seeks respite or adventure. If you want the relationship it is because you wish to love and be loved.

Do not judge your wishes and dreams for none is 'better' or 'worse' than another. All dreams, all wishes, truly at their core, are wishes to experience the love of God in your lives or to express the very same. All wishes and dreams are movements towards greater love. All wishes and dreams, when acknowledged with honesty, starting inside of yourselves, create movement and growth.

Do not hesitate to acknowledge your dreams for fear of disappointment. Do not stop yourself from dreaming because you have no idea how you can have what it is you want. Do not block your hearts dear friends because every time you do so, you block up the flow of love in the universe. When you open your hearts, acknowledge your dreams, feel your feelings, and allow God's grace to rush into you, through you, and out into the world. It is your vibration of excitement, acknowledgment, and anticipation that will draw good unto you. Hopelessness, despair, disillusionment... those are vibrations that do not create any movement whatsoever.

If you feel disconnected from your hearts, stagnant, or in despair, get moving physically. Truly dear ones, just allowing energy to move through your bodies, will create movement in your souls. Take a nice walk in nature. Stretch a little bit, within your body's capacity. Breathe slowly and deeply, if nothing else, and allow yourself to feel God rushing through you. As your winter moves towards spring, the life force within you wants to get moving again, much as the sap within the trees begins to flow when the weather warms. The trees in winter dream of their budding in the spring. So too you can dream of the growth you wish for in this coming year. You can dream of the things you want to create in your life. The trees do not know how their buds will be called forth. Instead it is in their very makeup and genetic program to respond to the impulses of weather and sunlight to do so. So too, dear ones, you do not need to know how your dreams will be called forth in your own life. You only need acknowledge them and trust that it is in your soul's makeup and program to respond to the impulses of the universe when they are given.

So take time while it is still winter, to go into the stillness, and dream your dreams, for to acknowledge your own hearts is to acknowledge God's plan and movement for your lives.

Time in the stillness

As the energies on your planet earth continue to change it is very important to give yourselves time to rest in silence. So many of you feel you cannot and should not slow down, and yet, it is in the stolen moments of stillness that you reconnect with God and self. Far from being unproductive, these interludes are the moments when you plug yourselves back into the flow of grace in your lives.

In stillness you will reconnect with your own heart. In stillness you will feel your feelings. This is so important because it is your feelings that help you discover the truth you are seeking to create within your own lives. In stillness you also find your fantasies which contain elements of the truth you wish to create. In stillness, you have to admit what is really going on inside of you, and from there - from these points of honesty - you can honestly ask for what you need. From these points of admitting what is really going on inside of you, you can begin to truly create.

The law of attraction, dear ones, states that what you are emitting both consciously and unconsciously will be mirrored back to you in your physical world. Most of you know what you are 'putting out there' with your conscious minds. You want to create abundance, a relationship, healing, or a million other wonderful manifestations. However, when you create time in stillness, you will discover whether or not your unconscious feelings and your unconscious mind are cooperating with your conscious desires. You will discover what you really need to create now - in this moment - in order to create your bigger dreams.

For example, say you are creating abundance. You think about abundance. You affirm you are abundant. You try not to worry, and you scurry around doing everything you can to create it. When you sit still you discover that you are exhausted. You want comfort, reassurance, and a feeling that God is hearing you. So, in that very moment dear friends, rest, ask for comfort, reassurance, and a feeling that God cares about you. For these qualities are the ones that will make you feel abundant already, thereby attracting more.

Alternatively, perhaps you affirm abundance and wait for something to come to you while you enjoy your life. This is wonderful, however, when you sit still you find that you are afraid if you are not doing something now, abundance will never come. In that moment you have discovered a limiting belief - a belief that says, "I must always work hard to create." In that moment you can decide now, consciously, to change that belief to one more empowering, such as: "I work as guided to create abundance."

Suppose you are creating a relationship. You do everything consciously to manifest this. You allow yourself to imagine a perfect partner. You make room in your home. You do your best to love yourself and be the kind of person someone else would want to be with. But when you sit still, you discover that you have a few unconscious fears about whether or not this person exists, whether or not you can trust anyone again. Dear ones, in that moment, resolve to put your faith and trust in God's ability to help you with the partner. In stillness, daydream of your future life and allow the joy of it to infiltrate your present moment so that, in a sense, its vibration is already within you - right here and right now. Imagine you have a partner now and that he or she is simply not with you at the moment, but will be here soon. In this expectant and joyful state, you are magnetic!

If you put your dreams aside to avoid disappointment dear ones, you simply control your disappointment. If you dare to dream your dreams, you must adhere to the faith that God cares about them and about you. You must risk surrendering to the unknown.

So, dear friends, take time in stillness and silence. Rest, and reconnect with all that bubbles up inside of you. Make time, if only stolen moments, for this time is absolutely required if you wish to create in the flow of grace. You cannot create with God if you do not take time to reconnect with God. God and your angels want to help and assist you in your life. We want to help you remove your struggles, find grace, ease, love and joy, but you have free will and you can, if you wish, continue to consciously or unconsciously create struggle. Sit still, ask for help in discovering what lurks in the unconscious that might be running contrary to what you consciously wish to create, and in those moments, you will grow, expand, and become even more wonderful creators.

A gift within every challenge

When life seems to be against you dear ones, look again. Within every seeming challenge is a great gift waiting to be discovered. In every moment you feel alone, God walks with you, and angels hold your hand. In every disaster, more love is waiting to be revealed. in times of challenge, God is saying, "I am here for you dear ones. Look for me. Find me in your heart, in your gratitude, in your reaching out for love and assistance." In times of abundance and fullness, God is saying, "I am here within you. Reach out to others and shine your light, indeed My light, upon them."

In every situation God can be found dear friends. In every situation love is present, waiting to be discovered and revealed. Seek and ye shall find. Knock and the door shall be opened. Nuggets of gold are found in the hard rocks and in the dirt. So too, the love of God is there in every tough situation, in every challenge, in every moment of your lives.

The more you practice seeking God's love, the easier you will find it. The more you find it, the less challenging even your challenging times shall be.

Dear ones, love is the essence of life. Love lives eternally within your hearts. Love is present waiting to be revealed. Sometimes gemstones have to be polished by grit and sand. Sometimes human hearts have to be revealed through tough times and situations that do not look loving at first. And yet, you are precious gems dear ones, faceted and formed by God.

Seek the love in every minute in ever day, in every circumstance, whether glorious or challenging, and then dear ones, all of your lives will be centered in that knowing that what you seek has always been there, and always will be.
