Happy New Year!

Happy Holy New Year dear ones! We are so excited for you as you enter the year of 2012. Far from being the end of the world it is a year of new beginnings. Out with the old, in with the new never had as much meaning as it will for your world this coming year. Each of you has been feeling this coming. Each of you has been releasing a lot of old emotions. Each of you is eager to get on with life, to make dreams come true, to allow for the love of God to flow into your hearts, homes, relationships, and indeed all of your lives!

Celebrate dear ones! Although there will be circumstances on your earth that cause many concern you can stand in a higher truth, knowing that what does not work is being catalyzed to change. What has been hidden in human hearts is coming to the surface. There will be a cry for more equality in the world, less greed, more compassion, more love. There will be more recognition that you are one world, one human race, and indeed all of you are in this life together, cooperatively, relying on each others' gifts, talents, and assistance to make the world go 'round. Your illusions of separation will be dissolving. Celebrate! Out with the old and in with the new!

For each of you personally you will be called upon during the year, to stand in faith or stand in fear. Choose faith dear ones! Have faith in God's love! Have faith in God's desire for you to live a life of your dreams, for indeed those dreams were planted in your hearts by God himself. Stop trying to control your days, your lives, others, your own heart. Allow yourself to just "be" who you are in any given moment. It is in this surrender to the truth of self, one moment at a time, that you are guided, directed, loved, and assisted. If you force yourself to do things out of fear, we think you know that this will not bring you a peaceful life. If you attempt to coerce, change, or "Fix" others you will find yourself in frustration. Let yourself be who you are and allow others to be as well. And while some may find the changes in 2012 challenging, you can sail through the year with grace and ease. As you bring love into every situation in your life you can transform not only your own lives, but indeed your world.

Merry Christmas!

To those of you who celebrate, Merry Christmas! To those of you who don't, Happy Holidays! Dear friends we love each and every one of you so very much. and during this season of light coming into the darkness, in this season of miracles, we celebrate the gift and the miracle that is you!

The light that was born in the heart of Christ, the light that kept the lamps burning, the light that burns in each one of you is nothing less than God's love made manifest in a world willing and ready to receive it. And while not all on your earth are ready to receive God's love, we know that all of you reading this message are willing. And so dear ones, during this holiday season, let us gift you with our love. Let us help you call forth the Presence of God's love within you so that you may experience yourself as the beautiful light in the darkness, the lamps burning brightly, the manifestation of God's love in a waiting world. Allow us to help you bring God's light into the darkened spaces in your heart and your life. Allow us to help you remember who you really are.

Open your hearts dear friends. Sit, breathe, and imagine your heart opening as if a flower of beautiful light is unfolding, awaiting the sun. Imagine this golden white flower in your hearts opening and waiting to receive the love and the light and the tender care of God's grace. Breathe. Receive. Know you are loved.

The greatest gift we could give each one of you is our love. The greatest gift you can give one another is your love. The greatest gift you can give the heavens is to love yourselves and be yourselves in any given moment. It is, like the babe in the manger, so very simple dear friends. You are all innocent. You are all beautiful. You are all pure and loving souls, and although you may not always feel this way you are a gift and a blessing unto the heavens.

May your holiday season be filled with the love that you are.

Saturday, December 17, 2011

What gifts will you give yourselves?

What gifts will you give yourself this holiday season, dear ones, for indeed all of God's love is available to you right now. Will you grant yourself with the gift of ease? Will you give yourself the gift of peace? Will you grant yourself forgivenss, or perhaps a little more self love? Spend time in contemplation and ask God for the spiritual gifts you wish to receive in the upcoming year.

We know you all have material gifts that you want as well, and that is fine of course, but beneath each one of these, you are asking for love. What kind of love are you seeking? Feelings of security? Feelings of peace? Feelings of being adored? Feelings of belonging? Feelings of being replenished? In reality you are secure. Peace is available at all times. You are adored and loved beyond measure. You belong as special and unique piece in the puzzle of God's creation. The source of all life rises up within you with each conscious breath. You are nothing less than the love of God made manifest in this world. You can never be unloved dear ones, you can only forget.

And so this holiday season, take a breath, and ask God for what you really want to receive. "Dear God, I believe that you care for me, but I want to experience your love. I grant myself an experience of life filled with peace and grace. I grant myself abundance. I grant myself health. I grant myself feelings of security. I open to receiving your love in ever expanding ways. I Love You God. Let your light and love rise up within me that I may experience your love in every aspect of my life and in turn be a beacon of your love into the world."

This dear ones, to experience God's love in ever more expanding ways would be the greatest gift you could ever ask to receive.

Bring light into the dark

As you enjoy your holidays remember, that the light that appeared in the manger, the light that lit the lamps, the light that is indeed in every aspect of creation is available to you at all times. Ask this light to surface in your hearts. Call this light into every aspect of your lives. Call this light into situations that trouble or worry you. Call this light into your relationships, your finances, your work, for indeed as you invite the light and the love of God into every aspect of your life, you are calling forth truth, beauty, inspiration, ease, and grace.

It is a simple message dear friends, and yet putting this discipline into practice may take changing old habits for you, as human beings, are so programmed to feel you must handle all of life's challenges on your own. When faced with a challenge, be it as simple as, "How am I going to get the groceries, the gifts, and get home on time?" pray and ask God to fill this situation with His light. "Dear God, Fill my heart with your light and fill my errands with your light. Fill the traffic and the store clerks, and the other shoppers with your light. Fill my finances and my family with your light. Dearest God whose love animates every aspect of life itself, fill me. Fill my life with YOU dear God." And as you pray dear friends, stop, breathe, receive, and then go about your business knowing God is with you. For this is what you truly celebrate at this time of year - the birth of God's light into the darker areas of your life - a new promise, new hope, and a new way of being.

Don't forget to rest

As you approach the holidays, make yourselves a little promise, that you will choose thoughts, words, and deeds that honor the spirit of the seasons. For indeed it is the way that you choose to live your life that will determine the quality of your experience. Is the impatient person in line ahead of you a simple annoyance, or an opportunity to share a smile and the spirit of the season. Are you presents true reflections of love and thoughtfulness, or simply another item to cross off your to-do list? Dear ones, God does not care whether you send cards, give presents, or decorate your homes. God cares that you fill your lives with love. If you send your cards, give your presents, and decorate your homes in a spirit of love and joy, than this choice to view the season as a time of celebration and love will fill your heart with the very same. If these very same activities are a burden, however, we would rather you avoid them entirely and do something that you can celebrate an d enjoy.

The holidays celebrate the light of God within you. The holidays celebrate the spirit of God's love. The holiday celebrate magic, miracles, and the possibilities of dreams coming true. If you feel this magic, share it. If you do not, seek it. If you can do nothing else, sit quietly each day and breathe and ask to receive the spirit of God's love into your heart, for this would be the greatest gift of all for each and every one of you.

Enjoy your holidays dear ones. They are seasons in the lifetime of your soul as you take this very brief and beautiful journey upon the earth. They are not things to be "done right," "crossed off the to do list," or "hurried through." They, like every other set of days you have upon this earth, are days to be cherished, to be filled with love, kindness, generosity of spirit, and the true spirit of the season, which is the spirit of giving and receiving God's love. Give only from a full heart. Receive with a fullness of gracious gratitude, and in this exchange, you will be the light in the darkness, the hope for the world, and the miracle of the light that keeps burning.

You are the light

In this season of celebrating the light coming into a darkened world, remember, you too are that light. You are truth, inspiration, and God's angels upon the earth. It is your kind smile that can turn the entire course of a stranger's day, or perhaps even their lives. It is your willingness to turn away from the unkindness of others, rather than feed it, that is a gift and a blessing to all involved. It is your willingness to acknowledge yourself as part of God's great love that allows you to shine that light into he world.

So while you are waiting in the holiday lines, take the time to smile at those around you. Call forth the light of God into your being and pray in silence to be a radiant blessing to those around you. When you are driving on the road, remember those are your fellow human beings driving with you. When you are running around with your family and friends, enjoying holiday events, remember, these are the ones you love. Enjoy the time. It is truly a gift, and remember as well to enjoy time with yourself and God each day, for this is a gift and blessing beyond compare.

You are the light in the darkness, dear ones. By all means, enjoy your holiday season. Enjoy the presents you give and receive. Remember, however, it is the gift of your Presence that is the simplest and most humble looking gift of all, and yet the most meaningful gift you can leave upon the earth.

Happy Thanksgiving

In this week of Thanksgiving we give thanks for you! Each one of you reading this has been striving diligently to live a more loving life. Each one of you has a dear and caring heart. And it took each one of you tremendous courage to come to the earth and to remain here during turbulent times.

So celebrate yourselves dear friends! As you give thanks around your Thanksgiving tables for those in your life that you so dearly love can you also give thanks for your own presence here upon the earth? Can you look in the mirror and say, "Thank you God for making me, for allowing me to be here at this time, living on this amazing school called earth! Thank you God for both what I perceive to be the blessings and the challenges, for these have shaped me and made me into the beautiful, kind, and caring person that I am today. I love you God. Thank you for breathing life into me today and all days."

Life is a gift dear friends. It is short even if you live to be 100 years. It is an adventure for your soul! In truth, you are one with the light and love of God dear ones, nothing less! You are simply striving to find your way back to that truth as the raindrops form the rivers which seek the oceans. Give thanks! This in and of itself is cause for celebration - that God's love can take shape and human form, and interact with other manifestations of God's love! Give thanks for the beautiful being that you call "you!" We certainly are thankful for each and every one of you!

You are precious

Each one of you is special, precious, and unique in our eyes. In the heavens we never identify you with you circumstances, your thoughts, and your moods. Instead we see you as the beautiful and courageous souls that you truly are. For indeed it takes courage to be upon your earth at this time. Mother earth herself is stirring, rumbling, trying to awaken her children to the fact that you are all one human race. She wishes for nothing more than her children to get along peacefully with one another, or at least, to find peace within their own hearts. And so, dear friends, the greatest gift you can give the world, and the greatest honor you can shower upon your Creator, is the gift of being yourself. And being yourself includes, not only finding ways to express your gifts and talents, and authentically expression your truths, but most of all being "yourself" means being the loving being that you truly are.

We know so many of you have to earn a living. And that is alright because even going to a job that is less than perfect in your eyes is an act of love. You love your homes, your cars, the food upon your table, your children, your pets, and you want to care for these beings. You love yourself enough to say I will create for myself some income to support me while I pay attention to the things that really matter in my life. And some of you are lucky enough to love even what you do while earning a living, but if you are not, don't judge yourselves dear ones, for everything you do, we choose to see as an act of love.

If you are not happy with how you are earning a living think first to yourselves, "How can I be myself in spite of the situation?" "How can I do my best given the constraints I face?" "How can I be loving even when others are not?" And in so doing, you release yourselves from the perceived limitations you face, because although the world might limit you in some fashion, you are unlimited in your capacity to love. You are unlimited in your ability to choose to see the light instead of the darkness. And the more you love - self first, then others - and the more you look to the light, the more your situations will begin to improve.

We see so many of your judging yourselves around the subject of money and we send you so much love, for we know that money is only a tool you use to exchange energy in the world. If you earn your money with love, even if you perceive yourselves to have the lowliest job in the world, then indeed you are rich with the pennies you do earn. You are rich because you are feeling filled with love. If you earn your money with anything less than love, you will find yourself feeling impoverished. Those you consider 'greedy' are often the poorest of all in our eyes because they do not yet know the abundance of God's love.

Love is the currency you all seek to exchange upon your planet earth. Love is what you are made of. Love is how we see each one of you. Your spirits were created in love and you will return to love. Why not embody the truth of your love here upon the earth and enjoy the special, unique, and precious journey that your soul truly intends to create?

Release yourself from expectations

As you release yourself from the expectations of your past, you will find that you allow room in your life for the magic and miracles that can only be created by God. When you surrender to your own heart, allow yourself to flow according to your natural rhythms, and give up your expectations of perfection, you start to realize that you are perfect already. Life is perfect as it is. Others are perfectly where they should be to support the growth their soul needs at this time.

You can dance with life rather than struggling with it. Like water, you can try to move the boulders and obstacles, but when they do not budge, you can carve a new path around them.

In this letting go of expectations, you allow room for greater creation. You free up energy that would otherwise be wasted. "But dear angels," we hear you cry! "I expect kind treatment! I expect my bills to be paid! How can you ask us to give up expectation!" Dear ones, this is not exactly what we are speaking of. By all means, expect kind treatment, but when it does not occur, simply move away. If you hold a specific individual bound to your expectations and they do not live up to that reality you waste a lot of time and energy being upset or trying to get them to change. Simply move on. Simply ignore the bad behavior, or speak up with love and kindness, albeit firmly at times, for this is the only way in which YOU will find peace. You will never find peace when you hold yourself or others to standards that you, or they, cannot yet reach.

A kindergartner is lucky to be able to share his A,B,C's. If you were to get upset that he or she wasn't able to articulate complex ideas in writing, you would be wasting your energy. He or she is simply not there yet.

Likewise you do your best in any given moment of your life. You get upset. You make so-called mistakes. You can't fit everything in a day that you would like. Sometimes you have vowed to treat yourself well and you forget. Dear ones, stop beating yourselves up. Stop holding yourselves to standards of perfection and then using these as tools to see yourself as anything less than divine. Strive, of course, for better at all times, but when you, in your human terms, "Mess Up," bless the mess, learn from it, and move on. When others don't live up to your standards, bless them, speak up kindly, and move on.
v You are at a time on earth when you want to be very careful where you spend your energy. And while we understand that you all want to be more loving, do better, and reach your goals, we encourage you to treat yourselves with love as you learn to do so. While we understand that you wish others would be wiser, kinder, and more loving, we encourage you to either treat them with love or simply move away when they are not.

Your energy is a precious resource dear ones. Use it wisely. Spend it on thoughts and behaviors that honor your spirit, and when you do not, be kind to yourselves anyway. In doing so, you are being kind to God, for God's love lives within you and you live within God as well.

We love all perspectives

Here in the heavens we are heartened to see so many of you expressing yourselves in the world. And yet as much as we love those raising their voices in protest, so too we love the bankers. As much as we love those who feel themselves to be victims, so too we love those who are perceived to be perpetrators. For here in the heavens, we know that all souls, regardless of evolution or behavior, are God's children and are deserving of God's love.

And while we honor and love all souls who are listening to their desire to speak up and express discontent with unkind treatment in the world, we also know that without souls willing to identify with victimhood or martyrdom, there would be no support for perpetrators. Without souls willing to identify with lack, there would be no support for greed. Without souls willing to give away their power, either consciously or unconsciously, there would be no support for those wanting to take it.

So if you speak up - either within your own life, or within the world - speak from a place of knowing you and all those with whom you interact deserve kind treatment. Anything less you have received or shared has simply been a misunderstanding within your own soul. If you speak up, speak from a place of love, knowing all souls are simply trying to learn, including those who embrace lack as well as those who embrace greed - for indeed those are simply opposite sides of the coin of misunderstanding the abundance of God. When you speak up, come from an understanding that you have the abundance of God's love within you in infinite supply. When you can from this love, act from this love, embody this love, then the forces of darkness and ignorance will have no more power over you, for you will no longer be supporting them in your own lives.

Far more important than occupying establishments, locations, or situations is whether or not you choose to occupy your own life, and whether or not your soull's desires are allowed to be made manifest through your thoughts, words, and deeds. If you try to change the world without first changing your disempowering patterns and beliefs, you are missing the point of your existence. Each of you came to earth to dissolve the illusion that you are separate from the love of God. And so dear ones as you watch the unrest in the world, pray for both "sides." Pray for the ones you agree with as well as the ones with whom you find fault. But more importantly, treat yourself with kindness, dignity, and respect. Focus on creating positive movement in your own life first. Speak from love. Act from love. Be love. And then, from this place of love, by all means voice your concerns and desires for change. Remember, however, change begins from the inside out and if you want to change the world, start first by changing the world within.

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Fall in love!

As you watch your news and see the unrest in the world, rather than falling into fear, dear ones, fall in love! Fall in love with the fact that everything that has been stagnant in your world is getting stirred up because everything that has been stagnant within human hearts is getting stirred up. And far more important than what happens on the news is what is happening in your heart! What is coming to the surface within you? What new desires are being revealed, or what old desires are becoming more insistent? How do you want to be treated by the world? What love do you wish to express? Look at these things dear ones. Sit in silence and examine your heart. Be impeccably honest with yourself. What do you want to create? What do you want to change in your life.

How can you create even the tiniest movement in your own life based on what exists in your heart. Big changes begin with a simple change of mind, and a simple commitment to the tiniest changes in your day to day life. If you want to lose weight for example, lose the weight of self-criticism, find the lightness of self love, and make the smallest loving choices each day. If you want to find the love of your life, love yourself as you desire to be loved and then let that love radiate and pour forth into the world. You will be irresistible. If you want to create peace in your heart, sit, breathe, receive our love and ask yourself with every non-peaceful thought, "What is a kinder way for me to think about this situation." You do not have to hang on to your old patterns, beliefs, or habits for a second longer than you choose.

We know these changes in your life take practice, diligence, and dedication. However dear ones, our prayer for you is that your hearts matter to you, that your lives matter to you, and that you choose to treat yourselves with love, kindness, and dignity. In the heavens we already know if you do this, then treating others with kindness, love, and dignity, will be no effort at all.

Saturday, October 15, 2011

Sort your priorities

This is a time of great movement and great light upon your planet earth. And while it may seem that the world is in chaos, dear ones, we see this stirring up as a wonderful time of sorting out your priorities, getting in touch with what matters to you, and making time for the things that add life to your lives. For if not now, when? This is your life dear friends. Today. Tomorrow, and the next. What if you had only a year to live? What would you change? Would live with freedom, abandon, and passion? Would you spend your savings? Would you make peace with those with whom your heart still holds burdens?

To live as if life is a precious gift is truly the way to feel most alive. And while we understand you are not going to quit your jobs, spend your savings, or necessarily call up everyone who has wronged you, dear ones, you can treat each moment of every day as the gift that it really is. Your lives no matter how long are so short in the scheme of eternity. Problems that seem huge at the time disappear with passing years, let alone lifetimes. So called "mistakes" you have made are all but forgotten and all that is remembered is the growth that ensues.

Nature does not plan for the future. The trees do not hold onto their leaves, saying, "But how will we make energy and food for ourselves next summer? What if the temperature isn't right? What if there isn't enough sunshine? Maybe I should hold on to these leaves after all." No indeed, dear ones, the trees let go of what is no longer useful, trusting that in right timing, all that they need will appear. In order for them to grow, they must conserve their energy in the winter, so they will be inspired to grow in the spring.

So too you must dance with the timing in your heart. And so so many of you want so much more! Take one small step today towards one of your dreams dear friends... on tiny step. And then another one tomorrow, and the next day. Life passes, why not pass your life doing those things which give you joy, fuel your dreams, and inspire you so you can manage life's necessitates, all the while knowing there is so much more to be enjoyed!

Never give up on your dreams

Never give up on your dreams dear friends. They are always closer than you think. In the mind of God all things already exist, waiting to be made manifest in your physical world. In the heart of God all possibilities are there for you to explore. And what you cannot achieve by sheer hard work, brilliance, and dedication, God can deliver with seemingly miraculous ease.

It sounds easy and yet the human mind is the single biggest culprit in sabotaging your own dreams. Your doubts, dear ones put the brakes on your manifestations. If you haven't see anything like what you desire in your life you may find your dreams hard to believe or imagine. Seek out role models. Seek you examples of what you desire. And instead of justifying why these role models have what you want, and you do not, say instead, "If it is possible for anyone, it is possible for me as well." Do what you know to do by all means to get your dreams going, but then dear ones, trust in God to partner with you and create what you cannot yet figure out.

God, dear ones is the love that gives you life. God's love is who you really are. It is only your mind, your beliefs, your conditioning, and all that you call your ego that forgets this. Can you take time to imagine every day the life you desire? Can you imagine it in such detail that it begins to seem real. Can you be grateful for your present circumstances and all they have taught you, while still imagining more? Make this a habit dear friends! Make it a habit to think of the best that can happen to you, the most joyful outcome, the thing that you desire the most. And by all means, get going! Do what you know. And then when you have done everything you know to do, everything your heart has guided you to do, trust in God. Relax into God. Surrender your concerns, and release your dreams unto the heavens, where in reality, they already exist, just waiting for you to believe

Saturday, October 01, 2011

Release what no longer serves you

As many of your trees turn colors dear friends, they serve as a reminder that in order to create what is new in your life, you must release that which no longer serves you. In order to bring a more authentic "you" to the surface of your life, you must release areas of your life that are no longer consistent with your dreams and desires. And so in this beautiful season of autumn, ask yourselves, "What is I want to create, and what must I release in order to make room for that dream in my life?" Some of you will find that you need to clear out the clutter in your closets. Some of you will realize that you must change priorities in terms of how you will spend your time. Some of you will have to let go of beliefs and programs that no longer serve you. For every new creation in your life, there will always be something that must be released in order to give birth to the new.

To create a relationship you must get rid of beliefs and patterns that no longer serve you. You may have to rid yourself of old grudges, old doubts about whether or not God loves you enough to bring you the perfect person for your life. Maybe you will need to make room in your schedule to enjoy your own life so in that enjoyment you can be vibrationally matched with someone else enjoying their life as well. Maybe you have to give up old apathy or excuses and get your finances and your life in order. Whatever it is that holds you back from imagining your dreams coming into your lives dear ones, let go. By unburdening yourself in this fashion you create the room for miracles in your lives.

By releasing lack you create abundance. By releasing notions of being unloved, you create love. By clearing clutter you make room for new items in your life, or you prepare for the move you have been desiring. By clearing time in your schedule by releasing those activities that no longer serve you, you make room for ones that do. In the birth of every creation, there is also a release of what no longer serves. The chick breaks free of the shell. The acorn bursts open to allow the mighty oak tree to grow. The flower must die to bear fruit, and so on dear friends, and so too, you will leave behind what no longer serves you in order to nourish and make room for your dreams to be birthed.

Never worry

If you knew how deeply you are loved by God you would never worry about a thing. The creator of the universe loves you and if you are willing to listen to your own hearts, you will be guided, protected, and cared for in all things.

You seek security in your bank accounts, your schedules, the locks on your doors, and in the comfort of those of like mind and like heart, and yet dear ones the only true security rests in the knowledge that God love and cares about you. The force and the love that makes the flowers bloom, causes the sun to rise and set, and moves the stars in the heavens, cares also for your lives.

If you worry, you are putting your faith in fear rather than in love. This limits our ability to assist you in your lives dear friends, because even the angels are bound by the laws set forth to govern your reality and we must, honor the energies you are radiating out to the universe. These laws are more like the laws of physics rather than the laws of man. If you put your faith in fear, we must step aside, and allow for it. We can warm you through instincts, intuitions, and variety of signs to keep you out of trouble, and yet if you don't pay heed to your own hearts, you will miss the guidance.

So many of you worry about the economy and yet God's economy is always and forevermore above anything humanity can create. So many of you worry about safety for yourself and your loved ones and yet true safety only exists in God. So many of your worry about securing your bodies against illness and yet true well being already exists when you are experiencing the love of God. So to ensure true security in your lives dear friends, trust in God. Pray. Listen to your hearts, and then just like the birds, the animals, the trees, and the stars in the heavens so too you will be guided and cared for in all ways.

Examine your belief & behaviors

In this season of fall many of you, no matter how old you are, are going "back to school" and this time dear ones the school is self-exploration! It is the season of harvest. Look at your lives right now. They are the harvest of all the choices and beliefs you have planted in the past. Is your life what the harvest you want it to be? If not dear ones, take time to plan a new garden of eden for yourselves. What is it you want in your future? What beliefs must you change to create that? What behaviors must you change? What must you begin in order to take the first steps towards your dreams?

Work on changing those beliefs. Get help in modifying those behaviors. Take those baby steps towards your dreams. You want to create more abundance? Speak abundantly. See the richness all around you. Take time every day to notice the areas in your life where you did experience abundance. Did you see the beautiful sunset? Experience a few moments of utter stillness? Look into the joyful eyes of a child? Get really creative here. You are trying to change your minds so you can change your lives.

Next, what behaviors support your abundance? Are you conscious of how you spend your money? Are you spending on things that make you feel abundant? Most would say, "Dear angels, we are spending all our money on our bills!" For some of you this is true, but if you want more abundance, be very honest with yourself. Keep a record and look at where your money goes. When you buy a cup of coffee or tea, do you sip it with love and appreciation? Does it make you feel abundantly joyful? Or do you simply gulp it down unconsciously and in doing so waste your own money. These may sound like simple things, dear ones, but these simple changes, change your vibration. Why did you not have a dollar in your purse for that lottery ticket you wanted? Is it because you gulped down a cup of coffee or tea and wasted it? Or is it because you bought your coffee or tea and savored every drop, and you feel so rich that you trust the money will always be there when you need it? Which is the richer reality dear friends? You know the answer in your own hearts.

Lastly, what steps must you take, in this example to create more money? What talents do you have that might become a side business? Where can you save a bit more? Be very impeccably honest with yourselves. Be creative. As you begin to take even the smallest steps towards having what you love, you tip your toes in a stream, in this case, of abundance. And as you witness the results, feeling more joyful and abundant in your own life, you will attract more.

Always dear ones, when you want to create, start by examining your beliefs, your behaviors, and your willingness to begin creating change. Be impeccably honest with yourselves. As you dig up the soil of your soul in this season of harvest, and look what the plantings of the past have given you, be ready to plan new garden of edens in your life, to plant new seeds of thought and try new behaviors. Prepare to take actions consistent with your goals! If you wanted tomatoes you would not plant potatoes once again! You are in charge of your lives dear friends, so much more than you can possibly imagine. You can create anything that truly arises within your own heart, for that seed is planted by God.

Special 9/11 message - Love will never die

From a human standpoint dear ones, we know your 9/11 was an unthinkable tragedy, and yet from our perspective here in the heavens we know that every tragedy, no matter how unthinkable, no matter how rooted in hatred, confusion, and ignorance it may be, is also an opportunity for increasing the light of love here upon your planet earth.

While several thousand individuals were lost to those upon the earth, they were found here among the angels in the heavens. We can assure you they are not the ones suffering dear friends. So rather than mourning those whose souls bravely gave their lives to awaken the world to a need for greater unity, instead support their families in prayer or as you are called, and give thanks for your own family. Give thanks for your own life and, dear ones, get going. Decide as a tribute to those who left on 9/11 that you will LIVE and LIVE and LOVE FULLY, for life even at its longest in human form is only temporary and you will all someday return home.

The question remains only this - will your life be a legacy of love, or simply a matter of "getting by?" If you were one of the ones who was in those building or on those planes ten years ago, you would not be thinking of all you had to get done, the bills you had to pay, the person that cut you off in traffic that morning, the friend that treated you unkindly, etc... You would be thinking about the ones you loved and all the things you wished you could have said to them. Say those things now - today. Tell your loved ones how much you appreciate them. Don't wait for "someday," to love dear friends. Do it now.

We reassure you that upon that day - 9/11/2011 there was an outpouring of love upon your planet earth as the people on earth called their loved ones, let go of petty differences, and gave thanks for life itself. Suddenly life was no longer taken for granted. Suddenly differences were put aside to help your fellow men and women. Suddenly problems that seemed oh so very troublesome in your own lives paled by comparison to what thousands of your fellow human beings were enduring. On that day dear ones, the good people of the world pulled their hearts together in an outpouring of light and love unlike your planet has ever seen. Darkness did not triumph in the end because even the darkness cannot kill a soul. Souls are eternal, and all souls, will at some point return home. Light, dear ones, love itself triumphed over the darkness that very sad and difficult day just one decade ago. And light still pours forth from the hearts of man as you choos e to value your lives, and your loved ones, and to celebrate all you DO have rather than mourning again all that was lost.

So by all means, dear ones, Never Forget. However, as you remember 9/11, remember the good people of the earth that came together in an outpouring of love and support for those that left. Remember the incredible number of ecumenical movements that arose to help end the divisions, misunderstanding, and hatreds that cause these sorts of crimes against humanity. Never forget that light triumphs ultimately over the darkness of ignorance and pain. Love dear ones, will never die. Love, dear ones, will always win. And Love dear ones, is and ever shall be, what you are made of.

Cooperation in creation

All of nature works in coopeartion, dear ones, and so too the human race was designed to do the same. If everyone on your planet were to listen to their hearts, everyone would be cared for, fed, loved, and guided to interact with those of like mind and like heart. Even those in misery would find company for indeed there is solace and love even there.

If you are in tune with your hearts you will be guided to speak up when you are around those who can help you, or those whom you can help. If you follow your heart you will be slowed down when the universe is tryig to help you avoid a complicated or unpleasant situation. If you are in tune with your hearts, you will be healthy, always have enough, and always feel loved. In the heavens we do try to alert you to unpleasant situations before they occur if it is not a lesson you have set up for yourselves. We try to say, "Slow down! Relax. There is no need to be stressed." Sometimes we tell you, "Get moving! Don't miss this opportunity." You will know because you will have the urges and feeilngs to rest or get moving, to remain silent or to speak up. It is only your conditioning that keeps you from listening to your heart. Each one of you came programmed with this ability. It is not for the select few.

Dear ones, attempt this week to listen to your hearts and to take note of how easily the universe works fo the good of all when you do. Life was meant to be a dance of love, not a dance of adversity. In the spirit of cooperation with the entire universe, rest when you are tired, get moving when you are motivated, speak up when you wish you could, and remain silent when you do not think of anything to say. God, dear ones, is the spirit that gives you life, and God wants all his loving creation to work at greater levels of coopeartion.

Life is a dance of cooperation

Life is meant to be a dance of love and cooperation, dear ones, not a dance of adversity. Your Mother Earth, even with her rumblings and storms is not "out to get you" but rather she is simply stretching and releasing tensions. And when she does so, she inadvertently causes her children to come together and realize what is of the utmost importance, namely one another.

Life is a precious gift. It is in turbulent times that you realize this. It is in times of movement upon your earth that you realize that this precious life is not to be wasted or squandered in upset and survival. Life is meant to be lived. With each breath you have an opportunity to look around and see the miracles of life. With each breath you have an opportunity to be grateful for life and all you do have. With each breath, you have the opportunity to check in with your heart and say, "What's next?" "What is calling me now?" "Where is my joy in this next moment." And while we in the heavens know it is not realistic to think you would live that way all the time, if you were able to do so, you would exist very much like the creatures on your planet who do not worry about tomorrow, or even the next moment. They simply follow their instincts and respond to the influences around them, trusting all is well. The trees do not worry about losing their leaves in the fall, nor budding in the spring. They simply exist in response to the cues inside and around them. If you could exist this way,dear ones, you too would live in cooperation with one another and the universe around you.

Time is wasted in wishful thinking. When something is one way and you wish it to be another, that is fine to envision and create a new reality, but don't waste time being upset about what is in front of you right now. You want the weather to be clear, but a storm is coming. Get ready then, and look forward to the calm after the storm. You want a person to be one way but they are not. Deal with them as they are. Love them as they are. And then love yourself enough to know if you want to spend time around them... as they are, and as you are. In this fashion, you move through life with greater ease. You are not resisting what IS right now. You can, by all means, envision happier futures! We want you to envision happier futures! But you will get to these states of joy more easily if you stop resisting what is right in front of you right now, deal with life as it IS now, and then take the next step in your life that calls unto your hearts.

There will continue to be much movement upon your planet earth both externally and internally in the next several months. You will feel motivated to get going on the things you want for your lives. Do you want more peace? Take time to find it a little bit each day. Do you want more money? Take time to see how you might change your gifts and talents into a little job on the side. Do you want love? How can you be more loving and do the things you love right now, as your life is? Do you want to be healthier? What small steps can you take? A major life change begins with a change of attitude and one small step at a time. The time to start taking these steps is now dear ones. Life is precious and too short to waste in resistance to your own hearts.

Connect with God through your heart

Dear ones, the more you connect with your own hearts, the more you connect with God, and the more connected you will feel with all of life. For you cannot possibly relate to others or the world around you if you are not relating honestly with yourself. Do you really know what you want? Or are you operating in response to all the "shoulds" you have been programmed with over the course of a lifetime.

Take time sometime this week and write down on a piece of paper, all the "shoulds" you can think of that you have been programmed with over the course of your life – both the ones that were spoken to you and the ones that were modeled for you. And then look at your life, and see the correlation. "I should put everyone else's needs first." "I should always be nice even if it means avoiding speaking my truth." "I should be responsible even if that means ignoring my own heart." "I should get my work done before I play." "I should eat my dinner before my dessert." "I should eat better." "I should be thinner." "I should be married by now." "I should have more in my retirement account by this age." Keep going. Dig deep. Allow the "shoulds" that define you to bubble to the surface. And when you are all finished, feel the weight of those "shoulds." Feel the bu rden of being told you must be something other than what you actually are in each moment. And when you are ready, rip, shred, burn, or bury that piece of paper, and make a decision that you will be who are you from now on in any given moment.

Who said you should be married, rich, thin, heavier, more beautiful, less flashy, quieter, more outspoken, more careful with your diet, more free with your diet, etc.? God says something entirely different. God says: Be who you are. You are love. Love yourself in each moment. You are already beautiful. You are already in relationship with all of creation. You are perfect as you are. Your body will tell you what to eat in any given moment. You will feel like doing the things that are guiding you on your path. You will want to do what is right for everyone's soul if you are honest with yourself.

Examine your life this week and really ask yourself how many of your activities are done out of shoulds vs. how many are done out of true desires. Do you go to work because you should pay the bills, or because you truly want to pay the bills. What is the difference you ask? I have to go to work! No you don't dear ones. You could quit and let others take care of you if that were in your heart. You could simplify and get a different job. You could create a new career. You see, there is powerful energy in owning your choices, getting real about what you are doing authentically because there is a reason in your heart to do it, vs. what you are doing out of a "should" or what you are doing simply because you have not examined why you are doing it. Start to own your choices dear ones. Start to do things because you want to do them. And if you do not want to be doing something, examine your alternatives and get busy starting to make the changes. Your life is short dear fri ends. Make it yours.

Dealing with confusion

When you feel confusion in your lives dear ones, sit still. Find quiet time and ask yourself, "What do I want in this moment?" "What does my heart desire right now?" Not one year from now. Not three days from now, and not even later today, but right in this moment. In this fashion you will get in touch with your guidance. If we asked you this question some of you would say, "I want to win the lottery!" And we would say, "That is fine, but what do you want right now?" You would say, "I want to never worry about money again," and we would reply, "Wonderful! You can stop worrying right now. You can trust God right now. In this instant you can fulfill your own desire and therefore begin to create an external manifestation to match." Right now, dear ones, your immediate prayers can be answered... by you!

Suppose you want a relationship, and again we ask you, "What do you want right now?" You answer, I want someone by my side. And we reply, "Of course you do, you are human! But given that there is no one there in this moment, what do you want right now?" And you say, "I am lonely! I want someone now!" And we say, "But now there is no one there, so what do you want right now?" You dig deeper and reply, "I want to feel loved." And we say, "Ah there, now there is something you can have right now! Sit quietly, breathe, ask to feel God's love. Surrender. Allow. Love yourself enough to ask to feel this great love." And you sit, and breathe, and feel calmer, and supported, and surrounded with love. All of the sudden you feel better. The desire for a relationship is still there but you do not feel you have to wait for your external manifestation to be happy anymore You feel more loved, more connected, and more fulfill ed right now. And in this space, as a happier person, you become more attractive to others seeking relationship.

Truly dear ones if you ask yourself, "What do I want right now? Given what is in front of me this very second, what do I want now? How can I give this to myself? Who can I call to help me if I need help? How can I fulfill my own desires right this second?" If you dig deep and ask yourselves these questions you will find that the answers to all your prayers can begin in this very moment, and by starting in the small, simple ways that you know how to achieve, you will inevitably create the vibration that attracts your larger manifestations.

Open to life

Life wants to flow through you dear ones. Life offers you a tantalizing buffet of adventures! Life wants to say "Here I am! Try me!" Taste! Look! Listen! Life is nothing more than a myriad of expressions of God's love waiting to be experience. Life is not about survival. Life is about experiencing love in an infinite number of ways. Life is about knowing the various faces and aspects of God. Life is an adventure of discovering more about who you are each and every day. And dear ones, this discovery is not solely a mental exercise - it is an exercise of opening up to life, tasting life, experiencing life, and seeing what parts of life resonate with you and which do not.

Start a conversation with a stranger and see what you learn about life or yourself. Try a new activity that you are drawn to and experience new joys in your life. See if you can learn why another person thinks differently than you. Open your mind up about new ways you might create income in your life by doing what you love, or simply ways to do more of what you love. Remember what you loved in childhood and see if you can't find ways to explore that energy in your adult life now.

The secret to remaining young at heart, dear ones, is being open to life. If you are open to trying new things, exploring new perspectives, and indeed discovering more and more about you who are every day then the energy of God's love is allowed to flow through your life. You'll want to remain on earth and enjoy its pleasures! Your body will want to adjust to allow you these joys. You'll feel inspired and revitalized. How do you know what gives you joy unless you choose to explore the possibilities life offers?

It costs nothing to read a new book. It is so simple to try a new food. It is freeing in so many ways to have a conversation with someone you disagree with in order to learn how they think. It is inspiring to brainstorm about how your talents might be turned into a business. Who says you can't do these things dear ones? God says you can. God invites you to be open to life. God invites you to think "outside the boxes" that were defined for you during your upbringing. Why can't you love someone who has hurt you? That power exists inside of you, and it certainly feels better than upset! Why can't you make money doing something you love? Why can't you try something that you think "isn't you?" Why not... Ask yourself in the upcoming days. Why can't I branch out a bit in my life and take a chance and try to be more open to life? Try opening up to life dear ones, for in so doing, you will learn so much more about who you are, what gives you joy, and what you'd rather avoid. In doing so, you will learn you are safe, loved, and not alone in this world. Opening to life is really opening to love.

Heaven exists now

Heaven exists, right here, right now upon your earth dear ones. It is not a faraway place. It is not a state of nirvana and meditation although some of you will find it that way. It is not a space reserved only for those who have 'earned' God's love or are 'worthy' of it, for indeed none of you have to earn God's love. It is given freely by its very nature. You are made of the very same. Worthiness is not an issue at all in the mind of God. Are the streams worthy of running into the rivers that run into the oceans, or isn't that part of their very design?

Living 'in' heaven is a choice. It is a choice to celebrate the miracles of life around you. You can see! You can hear! You can touch one another and feel with your very delicate and beautiful skin. You can witness the flight of the birds, hear the rustle in the trees, smell the freshly cut grass, and taste of the earth's bounty. Everywhere you look, everything you feel, everything you hear or see, or taste is a part of God's love for you. Heaven is found by looking at the many ways in which you are loved, at the myriad of ways in which your life does work. Even if you are not happy at all with your present conditions, you can find things to celebrate! You can dream your dreams.

We honor your human desires and yet, why oh why we wonder would you put off your bliss becuase your current life does not reflect some mythical criteria of success? If you had nothing, and believed in God's love for you, you would exist in heaven and find a great abundance of love surrounding you. The birds do not have a bank account. The field mice do not worry about their rent! And yet they are fed, housed, sheltered, and cared for. And when their lives end dear ones, they do not bemoan the fact that they did not achieve all they thought they should for instead they have lived one day, one moment at a time, grateful for the abundance around them.

We know that as human beings you want what you want, and there is nothing wrong with this. But do not put off your joy! Do not put off enjoying the miraculous nature of life around you for any reason whatsoever. Heaven can be yours right now if you choose to see the love of God surrounding you in this very moment. As you do so, you feel abundant inside, and you will attract all you need and want externally as a result. Heaven on earth is certainly not a feeling of lack, but rather an experience of contentment "now" even with a desire for growth and expansion.

Take a moment. Look around. See God's love everywhere - in the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, textures around you; in the eyes of a loved one, or better yet, in your very own eyes as you look in the mirror. God is everywhere. Love is everywhere. Don't deprive yourself of what is already yours, already here, already available in every given moment.

A life of happy moments

You will all have "to do" lists left behind when you are done this lifetime, and so we encourage you, while on the path to your goals, to enjoy the journey. For every "to do" you once had, there is now a "done" and often a new "to do." It is not likely that you will never finish all your tasks or complete all your dreams upon the earth, for as soon as you achieve one you will find yourself dreaming up something new. This is the nature of life itself. An apple falls upon the ground and wants to sprout into a new tree. The tree wants to blossom and bear fruit. And the new fruit wishes to fall and create a new tree. And so too, dear ones, you will always seek to grow, expand, and experience more while you are upon the earth, and after you leave it.

Rather than feeling discontent with where you are, celebrate all its goodness! Be grateful for what you do have, even as you are asking for more. For it is from a foundation of celebration that you enjoy each moment in your life and from a foundation of gratitude that you will achieve more. There is never a moment in your life without value. There is never a situation in which you find yourself without opportunity for love. In each and every moment, find the good, find the gratitude, and in this fashion you will more easily create your next dream or your next goal.

A life well lived is not a life in which you have checked off the most items on your "to do" list, but rather a life in which you enjoy the journey. If you accomplish but one small goal in your lifetime, and yet live each moment with love, you will see in heaven that your life was filled with richness. Perhaps you came to earth to say one kind, life changing word, to one soul that you care about. Perhaps you came to earth to pray one prayer for the earth itself. Perhaps you came to earth to experience freedom of choice, or perhaps you came to experience a limited range of motion to highlight some of your other lessons. In each life there are vast riches and so do not ever judge your success by how much you achieve, but rather by how much love and how much joy you choose to experience in each moment.

We wish for each one of you a lifetime of happy moments, and a lifetime of goals and dreams achieved while you are enjoying the process of achieving them.

The gift of receiving

Today we wish to speak to you on the gift of receiving. It is so easy for so many of you to give to one another and we celebrate your generosity. You feel so good when you give for so many reasons. When you give you feel abundant. When you give your generosity, your gift and talents are acknowledged. When you give, you feel you have made a contribution to someone else's life and this makes you feel good because you are being the love that you truly are. However, while it is so easy for so many of you to give, many of you have a hard time receiving. And yet, it is in receiving, that you allow another to experience the gifts that giving brings.

Some of you feel unworthy of receiving. That is nonsense dear friends! You are all worthy of God's blessings and while on earth, these blessings must come through one another. Some of you are afraid you are taking too much from another who has little, and yet have you not also given, at times, when you have little to spare? Didn't it make you feel that much more abundant? Try not to judge whether or not the giver can and should give. If it is in their hearts to do so, receive graciously. Some of you perceive that there are strings attached to the gift. And in reality dear ones, most of you have also given with strings attached. However, it is up to the receiver to decide whether or not they will acknowledge the unspoken "bargains" or whether they will have the self worth to simply say "thank you" and allow their gratitude to be sufficient "payback" to use your very human words.

In receiving graciously, you bless the giver. You give them the gift of gratitude, the gift of acknowledgment, the gift of saying, "Yes, I see and appreciate the love within you." By receiving with a grateful heart, you give back so very much. And more importantly dear ones, when you receive with a grateful heart you continue to allow the flow of God's love to move freely through the universe. By all means it is ok to gratefully decline a gift, while acknowledging the good intent. Maybe someone offers you help and you truly do not need or want it. Acknowledge their good intent. Thank them for their generous heart. In this way you receive the spiritual gifts offered and continue to keep God's love in flow.

Just as you love to give dear friends, others love to give as well. Allow others to bless you in this fashion, for as you learn to receive - compliments, assistance when needed, good words and kind thoughts, etc. so too you enlarge your capacity to receive God's love. You all want so very much in your lives, and so begin by making space in your lives, then practice receiving graciously as the love begins to flow freely towards you.

Everything is spiritual

There is a tendencey upon your planet earth to label and divide your activities and thoughts into what you consider to be "spiritual" and what you consider to be "mundane." Your mind decides something is "important" and therefore requires more attention than something "unimportant," and while these labels are human and we certainly do not judge them, we see things so very differently up here in the heavens. All your activities can be spiritual dear friends, or all can be mundane. If you sit in church out of a sense of duty, with no feeling of connection to God, that is less spiritual than the times when you view a single flower with a prayer of gratitude within your hearts, and a sense of wonder for the majesty of creation. If you perform acts of charity out of a sense of duty, that is less spiritual than quietly smiling at the clerk in your local convenience store as you buy your gas. It is never the outer activity that dictates the movement within. Rather it is the quality of love that exists within your hearts that dictates the merit of the outer works.

This month many of you are having an urge to clear out and clean out. And while sorting through your posessions may not feel so spiritual, and while you might feel there are more important things to do, consider the fact that laying the foundation of a house is certainly more tedious and less exciting than putting up the walls or enjoying the decor. Tilling the rocky soil of a garden patch is certainly hard work and yet it is necessary before you can weed, feed, fertilize, and harvest the beautiful vegetables that grow there. There are times for tilling the soil of your life. You are indeed digging and laying new foundations when you do so. If you want a job, you must prepare a resume. If you want to enjoy order, you have to clear chaos. If you want to enjoy a relationship, you have to throw away old beliefs that no longer serve you.

For every dream you have dear friends, there are soils that must be tilled, and foundations that must be laid. And so this week, we urge you to look at your dreams, and say to yourself, "What beliefs must I embrace to be consistent with those dreams?" "What do I need to change in my home or life to be consistent with those dreams?" What can I do right now, within my means, time, and energy levels to lay the foundations for the future I desire? Think about these things dear friends and then get busy because you are the ones who set the wheels in motion for your dreams to come true!

Saturday, July 09, 2011

You are free to love

Celebrate your freedom dear ones, for you are free to love and free to choose how to perceive every single situation in your life. You may not feel free at times. Your conditioning and beliefs may bias you to perceive a situation as negative or disagreeable, when in fact it just is what it is. When you see an angry child for example, many of you would have compassion. Some of you would privately giggle at the seriousness of their tantrum. Some of you would come unglued and yell back. Some of you would walk away in disgust. Some of you would pick them up, hug them, and then if all else failed firmly walk them to their room for some time to calm down. And each of these responses is a choice, although you ma not know it at the time. Each of these responses shows you how you feel about your own upsets, angers , and frustrations in life. Do you take your own anger so seriously that it disturbs you, or do you simply say, "Oh my, I'm so upset! Let me give myself some love, cool down, and then figure out what to do about this situation." For it is how you treat yourself that dictates how you will react to others.

Suppose you find yourself in the middle of the month without any certainty that you will be able to pay the bills at the end of the month. Again, you have choices in terms of how you will perceive the situation. You are free! Some of you will say, "That's alright, I always manage to come out alright. God is with me." Some of you will frantically do your balance sheets in an effort to feel in control. Some of you will get angry and throw tantrums. Some of you will fret and worry in spite of knowing everything turns out ok each month. Again, each reaction tells you a lot about yourself. Do you have faith? What did you learn about responsibility?

Look at each life situation you find yourself in dear ones. Look at your reactions to it. What can you learn about yourself? Can you choose to find more faith, more love, and more true responsibility - the ability to respond with kindness and peace? If you can dear ones, you will find that things you once considered to be challenges are not so challenging. Situations you once considered to be upsetting, simply exist. The world can go on with its tougher lessons, but you can choose peace. You can choose prosperity of the heart. You can choose, always and forevermore, the truth of your loving hearts.

Freedom every day of your lives

And while many of you celebrate your Independence Day this week, we celebrate your Independence day every day of your lives! For in truth, you were given free will upon your planet earth and you are free to choose to be a loving being at each and every moment of your life. No matter what your circumstances - whether you feel financially free or not, whether you feel "trapped" in a loveless relationship or not, whether you are bound to a bed or a wheelchair, chained to a wall, or in any circumstance in your life, you have the freedom to be the loving soul that you are, or not.

And while certainly we wish for you all the external freedoms that your heart can desire we know that sometimes you place yourselves in circumstances that feel rather claustrophobic in order to create lessons on the greatest freedom of all - the freedom to be who you really are. Nothing and no one can take that love away from you dear friends. No one can keep you from expressing your truth with love. And yes, you might argue that throughout the centuries some have died for this very act of freedom, we would say, yes, they have and their souls remain intact, even more liberated than those who remain upon the earth, walking freely, financially free, but feeling they must conform with the masses rather than be the loving beings that they truly are.

So this week explore your greatest freedom. When you feel financially pinched, exercises your freedom to feel God's love and abundance, and to be the very same. When you feel faced with a relationship - be it work or personal - that has you feeling trapped, exercise your freedom to express your truths with loving kindness, not with an intent to change the other but only with an intent to be who you really are.

This freedom, the true freedom, the freedom to love costs you nothing, requires no fight, and can be exercised anywhere, anytime, in any situation. You are all free dear friends. Happy Loving Independence Lifetimes to you!

Responsibililty

Today we would like to speak to you on the subject of responsibility. As human beings we know you have many obligations that you must fulfill in order to keep your life running smoothly. You must pay your bills, answer your emails, take care of your children, pets, and aging parents, go to work, cook your meals, exercise your bodies, etc. And while we honor these human duties, dear friends, and certainly support you in fulfilling them, we hold a very different perspective on the meaning of responsibility.

In our world, responsibility is your ability to respond to the present moment. If you are present to the moment at hand then your hearts will guide you always to do what must need to be done in the most joyful and efficient manner. If you take a few moments to check in with and be aware of your own heart, you will know what you want to do in each moment. You will know who you feel like calling, which emails you feel like answering, whether it is a productive time to pay the bills, etc. You will be guided to take care of your dependents in a way that is balanced and loving to yourself as well. In our definition of responsibility, you must be able to respond to your own heart first, and in so doing, you will be able to maintain all your human responsibilities as well.

Evaluate your human responsibilities, dear ones, rather than assuming they are all necessary. Of course we want you to honor the systems in which you incarnated, pay the bills, care for your loved ones, etc., however we do not want you to sacrifice your own soul in the process. And if you truly are present to your hearts in each moment, you will not only avoid sacrificing your soul, you will find that by including your spirit in each moment, trusting it, honoring it and listening to its guidance, you are indeed honoring of your human necessities as well.

Change your life once choice at a time

You have the opportunity to change your lives one choice at a time. With each and every thing you say you can choose to speak in a loving manner or one that is less than loving. With each and every activity you perform, you can perform it in a conscious and loving manner or in a manner that is rushed or unloving. With every thought you think, you can choose to think more lovingly or to perceive the world through the eyes of anger and victimhood.

We are not saying it is always easy to choose love for the world has programmed you to protect yourself, to feel insecure, to rush through your days and get things done, and to feel that you must have pain to have gain. Far from this dear ones, we would say that love is the greatest protection. You are secure in God's love. The more you are present the more you can achieve without rushing, and that the less you choose pain the more you will gain what is of deep and lasting satisfaction.

Unlearning old habits takes time but we urge you to take ten minutes, an hour, or perhaps a day to attempt to infuse every thought, word, and deed with love. Although as with most habits, it may take time and effort to move into this new reality, the rewards are rich, long lasting, and deep.

Speak to yourself with Love

Today we wish to speak to you on the subject of communication, but not in the traditional sense. Rather we wish to talk about how you speak to yourself, for indeed dear ones, you are in constant communication with every aspect of your being.

You communicate with your bodies on a daily basis. Are you being kind to your bodies? Are you telling them each and every day how much you love and appreciate them? Can you ask your body to trust you and to let you know its needs in a kind and gentle way? And if something in your body is in pain dear ones, rather than criticizing it or casting it aside, talk to it every so gently and ask it to guide you in its healing. Would you heal more quickly if criticized, or if given unconditional love? Your body has awareness dear ones and it senses the energy you direct towards it, be it loving or otherwise. Be gentle with your bodies. They do their best to provide beautiful housing for you soul.

You communicate with your own mind constantly as well. Are you kind to yourself? Do you berate yourselves, or can you instead learn to speak words of love to yourself. "Dear Self, well you could have done better earlier today but we learned! Good job! I'm proud of you dear Self." Have you ever stopped to consider who is talking to whom within your own mind? Dear ones there are so many aspects of your being. There is your truth - the love and the kindness and the compassion that you are. There is your inner child who worries about "doing the right thing," "being acknowledged," "being abandoned or rejected." There is your true child, the playful spirit of innocence, passion, and joy within you. There are countless programs that you have integrated into your psyche that have been given to you by others. So who do you want to listen to within yourself dear friends? Your loving soul and your true, passionate, and innocent child within would be our recommendations.

Stop the self criticism, the self judgment, the self deprecation - for these are all learned lies and it would be our deepest dream that you would make an effort to see past them and to see how beautiful you truly are, inside and out. For in God's eyes, and our eyes, you are always and forever more perfect. You are simply learning.

Watch how you speak to all aspects of yourself this week. Apologize to yourself if you have been less than kind and make a resolve to treat your own body, mind, emotions, and soul as if you the love of God itself... for indeed, dear ones, you truly are.

Your hearts can be at peace

Although your world is in a chaotic state dear friends, your hearts can be at peace, for God's love is constant, no matter what human kind is creating. And each one of you has access to this love and peace at every moment of your lifes. The reality you experience will be the one you choose to focus upon. In every circumstance, assume you are loved. In every situation assume there is a purpose. You do not always have to know the purpose. You do not always have to figure out why you are where you are. You only have to embrace the situation, assume there is some good behind it and in this mindset, you will be seeing the universe as a friendly place, as a place wherein each and every soul upon your planet earth, albeit often awkwardly, is searching for love.

When something unexpected happens, try to assume the best instead of the worst. When you do something you would rather not have done, or don't do something you feel you should have, assume that your soul had a reason, if only to learn more about who you really are.

When you look for the good in the world, you see more good. When you acknowledge what is good within yourself the world will too.

Dear ones, God's love is ever present. No matter what your world is doing, no matter what chaos humankind chooses to create, this remains the eternal and most deeply truthful reality. Focus upon this. Assume this in your lives. Assume that love lies beneath it all. And in this reality, dear ones, you will find peace, live in joy, and truly be "in the world, but not of it."

Relax, Breathe, Receive

Take a breath and allow yourselves to relax. Take another breath. Feel the air moving into your lungs and filling you. What a miracle it is to be able to breathe! Take another breath. Pause. Exhale. Allow yourselves several of these deep and slow breaths. Be aware of your breathing. Are you relaxed, tense, happy, stressed. Where are you right now, in this instant dear ones?

Now, as you breathe, imagine that there are two of you. One of you is your higher self, the part of your being that knows all is always well and that you are an eternal soul resting in God's arms. The other one is your personality. This aspect of you may be happy, sad, stressed, relaxed, or anything in between. Imagine you, as a soul, can talk to you, as a personality. Say to yourself, from your soul to your personality. You are perfect in this moment. You are loved in this moment. All is well in this moment. you are being held in the arms of God.

Now after you read this, shut your eyes, and breathe slowly and deeply. Invite your angels to give you a big hug. Invite them to help the light of God within you to shine more brightly. No matter what is going on in your life right now, in this moment give yourself the gift of experiencing God's love, if only for just a minute.

God's love is always there for you dear ones. It is there whether you take the time to feel it or not. It is there as surely as the sun shines behind the clouds. It is there when your life is in bliss and there when your life feels as if it is spinning out of control. And in reality, this love is all you are ever truly seeking. This is the love you want to feel by having a full bank account, and beauty all around you. This is the love you want when you desire to see the world. This is the love you want when you are in relationship - you just want it to come through another person. And while we encourage you to enjoy the world and the people around you, know that this love is there for you at all times, within you, around you, and indeed what you are made of. Try to take a few minutes each day to receive this love. It is the greatest gift you can give the world right now, to fill yourselves up with this love, for when you feel it, you will be it. When you are full your cup will runneth over. When you are convinced o f God's love you will trust that all your needs will be met and that you are safe and loved. Dear ones, it is so simple to take a few breaths and receive. We ask this of you, for yourselves, and for the world.

Patience

Today we wish to speak to you on the subject of patience. Patience, on your planet, has a negative connotation. When you have to be patient, you often feel as if you are doing something wrong, or the universe is not hearing you. You frustrated because you want what you want now. And yet dear ones, Patience, is truly another aspect of Trust.

When you trust God, you know that all things happen in the most amazing and proper timing. You trust that the force that made you and breathes life into you - the same force that moves the stars in the heavens and motivates the turnings of the seasons - loves and cares about you more thank you can imagine. God, the intelligence and love that breathes life into and coordinates the entire universe, knows the big picture for you life and the lives of all those with whom you interact.

The trees are patient as they wait for the sun in the springtime to warm them and coax their budding forth. If they were to bud in the winter, they would not have had time to rest and replenish their energy from the last season. The sun would not be properly aligned to ripen their fruits. The snows might ruin their buds and prevent any blossoming at all. And so, to a tree, patience is nothing more than a willingness to surrender to a greater intelligence and love.

So when you find yourself feeling impatient, remember, you are just fearful. You just want "proof" that God heard you. You want comfort. Why not ask for comfort? Why not ask, like a little child, for the reassurance that you need. Why not ask God and your angels to help you clear out the fear inside and find joy right now.

For it is human nature to always want more. Your desires call forth your growth, just as a seed's desire for sun calls forth its growth in the springtime. And yet an acorn is perfect and sufficient unto itself although it dreams of being an oak. It has patience. It waits for the rains and the sun and the seasons to change, knowing then that conditions will be perfect for it to fulfill its deepest design.

Live your lives now dear ones, in each moment. See love and be love to the best of your ability in each moment. For when you making loving choices for yourself "now," and when you have faith that all will occur in divine and beautiful timing, it is this joy and this faith that calls your answers, solutions, and dreams to you ever so much more quickly.

Trust your own heart

In all things dear friends, trust your own hearts, for in trusting yourself, you will learn to trust God as well. God is the love that makes your hearts beat, your lungs breath, the stars dance in the heavens, and your heart long for a minute of silence. God is the force that puts a person in your mind and gives you the urge to call. God is the whisper saying, "You are tired. Rest." God is the voice of excitement and passion calling you to explore new adventures and ideas. God is the wisdom and the love that runs the entire universe dear ones. The stars in the heavens do not have to think about where they will travel, they simply know their course. A bird does not worry about whether or not she is nesting in the right tree, she is simply drawn to the branches. A seed does not think about whether it should sprout up or down. It simply reaches for the light.

So too, in all your dealings, reach for the light. Do that which gives your heart joy in each given moment. For if you wait for the future to be happy, your miss "now," and "now" dear ones is an opportunity to embrace where you are with love and gratitude if only for the smallest aspect of your lives, and then to take the next step towards what your heart desires, and the next. In this fashion, you transform your lives. You add love to your "nows" and you embrace greater "tomorrows."

Dear ones, if you trust the movement in your own hearts, so too will you trust the love that made you.

A life of abundance

Celebrate dear ones for you are all moving forward once again in your lives. Whether the motion is "voluntary" or appears to be motivated by outside factors, each one of your souls is striving to create more joy, more love, a feeling of greater richness in the quality of your lives. Richness in your lives is never tied to the money in your bank account but rather, it is related to the amount of love and joy, connection and meaning that you choose experience on a daily basis.

And so dear ones, how do you add abundance to your daily lives? You first opportunity to experience an abundant life occurs upon awakening. Do you rush out of bed, stressed and worried about the day? Or perhaps can you experience this very same moment a little differently by taking a few deep breaths, stretching, giving thanks for your bed, your life, and another day in which you can create a whole new reality here upon your planet earth? When you arise, try this for a few days. Take just a few extra minutes upon awakening to fully allow your spirit to get back into your body after a night of being out and about with angels and guides. Take a few moments to breathe, stretch, and luxuriate in the feeling of having a body and the ability to breathe at all. Think about what you would like to do this day and ask for the help in achieving your tasks smoothly and gracefully. Envision your wonderful day. Ask that your day be filled with grace. Breathe. Feel yourself resting in the arms of God .

When you eat your breakfast, there too you can create an experience of lack or abundance. Do you even eat your breakfast? Do you rush? Do you throw something in your body without regard for it's desires and feelings as well. Or perhaps dear ones, can you stop, slow down, breathe, and ask your body what it wants to eat in ordered to be nurtured and sustained for the day ahead. Can you take a few minutes to prepare and eat your food with conscious awareness and gratitude?

When you greet your spouse, your child, your pet, or your co-workers are you present with them. Do you look into their eyes, seek the spark of light there within. Do you greet them cheerfully, see them as human beings - spirits in and of their own right who have cares and concerns just as you do - or do you see them as nuisances - people to be managed, avoided, taken care of? Do you share of your heart and your truth honestly and kindly with them, or do you close up for fear they will not care or understand you? In an abundant life dear ones, you are yourself and you allow yourself to connect with the people around you. You will repel those who do not belong and attract those who do, for this is the law of life. When you bring your heart to the surface without shame, without a need for acknowledgement, or without a desire to make others agree, your life will adjust to bring those to you who honor it.

These are but a few examples of how you can experience abundance in your life. An abundant life has nothing to do with money, but rather to do with an experience of love, joy, connection, and meaning. These things are all available no matter how much or how little you feel you have, for these qualities are within you already, there for the giving. Seek to love what you can. Seek joy in the simple pleasures in life. Seek connection with other human beings and let them sort themselves out around you. You can find meaning in the simplest act if it is done with love. Brushing your teeth can be a spiritual discipline if you do it with consciousness, gratitude, and love1 Indeed dear ones, find and experience the wealth you already have and in so doing you stop worrying about money. You stop worrying about what you do not have and focus upon what you already do. And in this state of being, you cannot help but attract more for you have at long last, discovered, your abundant he art, and the richness of your own soul.

God is in all things

In all things dear friends you can find God for indeed God is within all things. When you look at the sky, there is God. When you look at the grass, there is God. When you look into the eyes of those you love, there is God, and when you look into the eyes of a stranger or even those you cannot stand, there is God.

Our message today is simple dear friends, short, sweet, and to the point. Seek God within all things. Look for the miraculous presence of love within all people. The hair on the head of the person you hate is a miracle of God's love. The soul that is buried within such pain is a miracle of God's love.

All souls, all things, all beings are worthy of your love dear friends. Challenges yourselves to find something you can love, no matter how small, about every single situation and ever being you encounter, and suddenly your world will seem a lot more loving :)

The love within

Celebrate every moment of your live dear friends for each of you, in every moment is striving to be the loving beings that you truly are. It is time to stop pretending you are anything less. When you are what you judge to be "less than loving" ask yourself, "How is this a cry for love?" "How can I give this love to myself?" For example, if you are upset at a situation, ask yourself, "How is this a cry for love?" Perhaps you want to be treated more kindly. Perhaps things didn't turn out as you wished. Next, "How can you give this love to yourself?" Maybe you can treat yourself kindly first then communicate with love. Maybe you can say, "Ok, here is where I am now but look at what I want to create," and allow yourself to steer your thoughts and intentions towards a kinder reality. There is always love you are seeking, and there is always the love within you that you can call forth to bring more light into your l ife.

When you access the love within yourselves dear ones, your entire life is lit with a magical glow. When you are loving and kind to yourself, you are loving and kind towards others. You can walk towards what gives you joy and walk away from what does not. You can choose thoughts that give you joy and simply choose to be done with the ones that do not. You can exercise control over your minds, rather than having past programming and conditioning exercise its control over you. For indeed love does not like to be controlled! Love likes to flow freely without restriction. You would not want anyone else telling you how you should think or feel... and so why do you tell yourselves how you should think or feel? Let yourselves "BE" as you are, in any given moment, and then from that place of loving all that you are, you can then release what you are done with and call forth what you wish to create.

Be kind to yourselves. Be gentle with yourselves. Be accepting of all that is within and without, because only from that place of nonresistence to what "is" can you ever make a clear choice as to what you want next. You are all perfect in our eyes, exactly as you are, right now. You can never ever do anything to lose the love of your angels or the love of God. What if each of you could love yourselves in this fashion? Then, dear ones, your world would be a different place.

God celebrates every act of love

God, dear ones, celebrates each and every act of love upon your earth as if it were the greatest and most noble of deeds. Whether you are building schools, feeding the hungry, sheltering the poor, or opening the door for a person struggling with their groceries, your choice to be loving matters in the eyes of God. Be it great or small in appearance, all acts of love are great in the eyes of God. All matter. All make a huge difference in the consciousness upon your earth.

Do not compare yourselves with others, because it is not the scale of your deeds that is a measure of your success at the end of your life, but rather the love and authenticity with which you lived each day. You may never think you "make a difference" and yet perhaps someone spoke to you in anger yesterday and you chose instead of retaliation and reaction, to take a breath, to realize this person is obviously hurting, and to respond with firm calm or kindness. Such decisions to add more light to your world bring the angels to tears, dear ones. They are beautiful beyond compare.

When you assist a child, smile at a stranger, choose to be kind to yourselves, forgive someone who knows not what they do, take the time to take care of yourself, take the time to care for another, take the time to pet the dog, appreciate the rose upon the vine, to cook your food with love, to make your bed with gratitude, dear ones, these actions although "small" in the eyes of the human mind, are certainly grand in the eyes of God.

Sometimes the very smallest acts of kindness you perform are those you will find most meaningful at the end of your lives, for you can never ever know the ripple effect of these actions. Humanity, dear ones, is one family. And when you are kind and loving to yourself and another, your energy is like a drop of beautiful coloring seeping into a sea of clear water, tinting the entire consciousness of humanity with greater love.

Give yourselves credit dear friends, for all of you, every day, perform countless acts of love. You forget these "small" things. You don't always give them much significance, and yet every act of love and kindness, be it to self or another, is a great and noble deed in the eyes of God.

The gifts of self

This year many of you are taking a look at your holiday gift giving in a slightly different light. And while some of you bemoan the economy and say, "Look what I can no longer afford. I cannot give in the ways I used to give," we see that you always have beauty, truth, light, and love to share the world and those you love. These gifts reside within you and can never be taken away. They are not dependent upon human economies, nor do they ever run dry.

And so, dear ones, during this holiday season, focus upon the economy of God.

As you think about giving presents to one another, think also about giving your Presence. We do not mean you have to be physically present with someone, although that is always a gift! Simple ask yourself, "How can I give of my heart, my kindness, my words, my talents, my spirit?" "What do I have, inside of me, that I can contribute to this person's life?" And certainly dear ones, if you can and if you like, you can buy each other gifts, but if you do so, do so consciously, in a way that honors what you have and what you don't, and in a way that honors the receiver as well. Do not spend beyond your means because giving in this fashion stresses you and creates a vibration that simply affirms lack. Instead, spend with what you have for the simplest gifts, given with thoughtful and conscious intent mean ever so much more than others bought just for the sake of "something to give."

If you do not know what to purchase or do for someone, sit quietly, breathe, and ask your angels to inspire you. Imagine you can converse with that person's soul and ask them, "What would you like? What would touch your heart," and then wait for the first thought or idea that pops into your head. In this fashion, giving a gift becomes an act of connection, a beautiful moment of your soul touching and honoring their spirit. It is a sharing of energy, and an act of real love. And while this may take a little extra thought than just running out to buy something, it will be far more rewarding for you as well. For it is in giving that you receive, and when you give from the heart, you feel within you the true abundance that can never be taken away, nor will ever be reflected by your bank account - no matter how much or how little you have.

You are all abundant beings. It is your love, your kindness, your spirit, your gifts, and your talents that are most appreciated in this world... and these are the gifts that have eternal value.

So this year by all means, share your presents, but also dear ones, share your Presence with one another.

You are reaching for the light

As the buds burst forth, the flowers bloom, and plants begin to reach for the light, so too many of you are feeling the urge to reach for the light as well. Do you have something you feel passionate about? If so dear ones, it is time to start incorporating your passions into your life. If you like to create art, make time. If you like to be around children, make time. If you like to cook wonderful food, collect nostalgic items, feed the poor, feed your family, build things, read about history, you name it, then it is time to get going! If you like to dance, dance in your living room. If you are interested in learning a new skill begin reading or look into taking some classes. It is time to incorporate more love in your life dear friends, and you do so by doing what you love or loving what you already do!

If you don't know what you love, it is a time for explorations. Take classes, talk to friends, talk to strangers. Ask people what they enjoy doing for fun and try things out. You don't ever need to wait for the "right" circumstance or the "right" person to get going with your lives. If you love to travel but don't want to travel alone, look into traveling with a group. If you can't afford travel yet, begin to make your vision boards and dream about where you would like to go.

Dear ones, each one of you has things to do that you love and enjoy. These things will take you outside of time, so to speak. They bring you into the present moment. They become a form of meditation that brings you peace, focus, clarity, and joy. It doesn't matter whether the task is something that will earn you money, although it may in time. It doesn't matter if the task "benefits" anyone else in the traditional sense. Dear friends, your joy, your upliftment, your higher vibration will benefit the entirety of human kind! Allow yourself your passions, your joys, your enthusiasm. It can be as simple as finding a playground and swinging on a swing, going to sit and quietly read in a library, or in the lobby of a beautiful resort. Your joy can be quietly laying on a blanket in the grass watching the clouds, or it can be chopping up colorful vegetables for a healthy and delicious salad.

Your joy will always lead to greater love, greater abundance, greater clarity, and greater enthusiasm for life, for in this higher vibrational state, you begin to believe in the goodness of life, and therefore to attract more. You become happy, uplifted, and grateful.

Do not be stingy with yourselves dear friends. Make time for joy. It is a gift you give unto yourself, and indeed the entire world as well.
