Give of your love

We understand that, for many of you, 2010 has been a year of contrast - amazing challenges interspersed with moments of great love and peace and an awareness that all is well in your lives. Celebrate dear ones, for truly God is coming to the surface in the human hearts ready to receive and reveal it. Just as in your Nativity story, the light came into the darkened space, so too the light of God wishes to illuminate all that is not yet filled with love and peace within you.

As you go through your holidays this year, allow yourselves to take the time to open up and ask God to come into your hearts, calm your fears, fill you with faith, allow the tears to at long last be cried, dried, and left behind. Ask the light of God to reveal the desire for love beneath your upsets, and the desire to share love beneath your stress and anxiety. For in the end, you are all made of this love, you wish to feel this love, reveal this love, be this love, and share this love in your world. This is the true spirit of Christmas dear ones - to receive and believe, to reveal and heal, to share the light of God with a world so desperately in need. Be the light dear friends. Give of your love, for that is the greatest present of all, and a gift to yourselves as well.

You have all the time your heart needs

Today we wish to speak to you about time. So many of you stress and strain, feeling that you never have enough time for all you wish to accomplish. And yet, dear ones, you will always have enough time to do the things God feels are truly important in your lives. When you feel overwhelmed or overloaded, take a step back, breathe, and ask yourself what is truly important to your hearts. Which activities give you joy or support your heart's goals? Which activities were you made to believe are important by your own conditioning? Which activities are on your "list" to satisfy someone else that do not give you joy.

Especially during your holiday season many of you put so much pressure on yourselves. We understand you love to give, you love to celebrate your traditions, and you love to spend time with friends. However, to do so at the expense of your own peace and balance negates the very reason you would do these things to begin with. You want to feel connected. You want to give and receive love! And this is a wish you have all year long, dear friends, so we implore you, as you go about your days, be loving to yourselves. Be kind with your own schedules. Ask for help when you need it, and be willing to delete items from your "to do" list that are not absolutely necessary or do not thrill your soul.

In this fashion, you immerse yourself in the present moment and make good use of your time, rather than flying through it, rushing to get to the next thing, and thereby truly missing your actual lives and the love you are seeking. Immerse yourself in the moment dear friends. Do the things that support your goals and dreams and your very own heart. In this fashion, you not only become more open to receiving love and guidance from the universe but you also gift the world with the true Presence of your own attention, love, and joy!

The presence in all

We know many of you have been experiencing an unprecedented level of emotional sensitivity here upon your planet earth and while this may be a challenge for many of you, take heart, it is a chance to clear out the old and make room for the new. When you cry seemingly as if a wave of sadness has passed through you, realize it is only a wave of love washing the sadness up and out. When you feel a sudden burst of upset, know that love is pushing a deeper truth to the surface. For none of your emotions are without value, and each and every one points to a greater desire for love.

Your mother earth is feeling things very deeply as well dear ones. She has had a tough year in that there are wounds to her body that are not yet healed, and like you she has felt fatigued and saddened by the discord among her children. Yet still she loves, and asks that you too, choose to love. Choose to love and be kind to yourselves, no matter what is going on inside of you. Choose to love others by focusing on the fact that everyone, no matter how enlightened or unevolved is seeking love in the best way they know how to do it. Choosing love feels better. Choosing love heals hearts. Choosing love is not always a feeling of being warm and fuzzy but rather making a decision to focus on the perfection of the soul no matter what the personality is currently displaying.

When you choose love you are saying, in effect, "I acknowledge the presence of God within me and all creation. This is worthy of love. This is what I choose to focus upon." And in so doing, you become the light in a darkened world, much as the baby in the manger brought a very great light, and the lamp in the temple burned miraculously longer than expected. It is your light, and your love that heartens the world, brightens up the heavens, and creates a kinder reality upon the earth. Start with yourselves. Grant yourselves love, forgiveness, and compassion, and then spill these very same gifts out into the world.

This holiday season dear ones, gift the world by acknowledging the light, the love, and the Presence of God within all.
