Align with God

Understand that so many of you are wanting to get on with life, to move forward, and create change. Always and forever dear ones, remember that change starts from the inside out. If you simply rush forward into your projects, strategizing and plotting but do not get your energy, attitude, and emotions pointed in the right direction first, then you will run around like the proverbial chicken with its head cut off. If however, you take time in silence to imagine the outcome you would like, breathe, pray, and ask God and the angels to guide and direct you, then your actions will be inspired, guided, and effective.

And so our message is simple this week. Whether you want an entirely new life, or simply a positive day, take time to sit and breathe, visualize and pray, for these few minutes each day are well spent, and will save you hours of frustration. Align yourselves with God at the beginning of each day. Pray to be filled with Spirit, with light, love, guidance and inspiration, and then dear ones, your actions and God's actions will be coordinated.

If the one who made you can coordinate the movement stars in the heavens, perhaps this same loving being can coordinate the most graceful motion of your life as well.

Imagine everyone is a beautiful soul...

In each of your hearts dear ones there is a very sweet, sensitive, and vulnerable place - a place in which you trust life, are open to adventures, and believe in the goodness of the world. There is a place in which you know you are a magical creator, king or queen of your own world, and able to see what others label as make-believe. In this magical place dear ones you find the innocence of your childhood spirit, and the magnificence of your powerful soul.

Imagine for just one day that everyone you meet is a magical and beautiful soul. Inside everyone, no matter how hardened, how wounded, how angry, or how insensitive they are is a sweet, sensitive, and kind soul. Some souls display this part of themselves quite plainly on the surface. You are drawn to them. They inspire you, entertain you, motivate you, and gently coax you to open up and share your sweetest side as well. In other souls this part is buried deeply underneath layers of protective coating. Pain has convinced these souls to hide their beautiful, sweet, and sensitive spirit deep underneath layers of anger, intellect, or insensitivity. These are the souls that need your love, prayers, and compassion the most.

If you can imagine for one day that everyone you meet has a magical and beautiful soul, you will treat everyone differently. When you see those who are tired, you will know there is just a sleepy little child within, weary from life and the world, perhaps, and in need of a bit of kindness. When you see an angry or insensitive soul you will be able to know it has nothing to do with you and inside of them is just a child who is hurting and in need of your prayers. When you see a soul that is shut down, unconscious, and seemingly without a conscience, you will know there is also a depth of pain within and send them prayers as well.

You do not need to be around those who will not share their hearts, but you can pray for them dear friends. You can send them love, imagine their light within growing, and surround them with a soft blanket of the pink light of the heart. You can avoid taking their pain into your systems because you know they are not trying to hurt anyone but rather are hurt themselves. You can avoid trying to "Fix" them as well - have you ever tried to explain something to a child wailing in sadness, or screaming in anger. Far better to pick the child up, give them a hug, or at least a "time out." And so too, pick others up with your love and prayers.

In this week when so many of you celebrate a feast of St. Valentine's day we want you to know how very much we love each and every one of you. Love yourselves dear friends, for you are no less than the love of God molded into human form. Offer this love to others, if only through your prayers... for each soul upon the earth is made of the same stuff. Some remember, some forget, but all are worthy of compassion and loving prayers.

Deaths and rebirths

So many of you have "suffered losses" over the past few years, whether it be loss of a home, loss of a job, loss of a relationship, loss of a loved one, or any other type of loss. And yet dear ones when you look at it from our perspective, in the big picture, there is never any loss at all, because when you let go of life as you know it, you are making room for an even more miraculous life.

Nonetheless, we understand that as human beings it is hard to let go. It is hard to trust that there are gifts and magical experiences that will come to you as a result of what you perceive as loss. If you let go of a house, God is waiting to help you embrace a simpler and richer existence. If you let go of a job, perhaps it is because more meaningful work with kinder souls and a healthier environment is in your future, or perhaps it is time to soul search and see what you really want to do with your life. If you let go of a relationship, you are learning to accept yourself more fully and therefore will attract more appropriate ones in the future. If you let go of a loved one in physical form, you are on the brink of a new adventure with their expanded understanding of themselves as a soul.

So dear ones, when you feel you have "lost" someone or something, look again. Pray, search your hearts, and ask God to reveal to you what is there to be found in this situation. For there are always gifts for your spirit. There are always presents of love when you embrace the present rather than trying to cling to the past. There are always manifestations in your physical world that will result from allowing this new love into your lives in its many forms.

A caterpillar dies unto itself, only to be reborn in the most magnificent form as a beautifully butterfly. A rosebush is cut back in the winter only to be reborn in glorious bloom. The cells in your skin die and are released to make way for a new and healthy shield for your spirit. Everything dear ones, is lost, and then found once again in a greater and more magnificent reality, for that is indeed the nature of God's love as it travels through the material universe in its myriad of different and beautiful forms.

Getting rid of the beliefs that do not serve you

You are all going through tremendous transformations as your Mother earth continues to grow, expand, and insist on her own evolution. Each one of you is digging deep within to see what you want in your lives and what you do not - you are evaluating your material possessions, your beliefs, your relationships, you careers, indeed your entire life. It may seem as if you feel either waves of gratitude and/or waves of discontentment. Take heart! Every time you grow you will see more clearly what reflects the truth of your unique spirit and you will also see what you no longer wish to have in your lives. Be gentle with yourselves.

Many of you are carrying around old beliefs that have become habit. You have done the emotional work, and yet it will take fortitude to choose over and over again a better belief. For example, you say to yourself, "I have no time for me," and then you work hard to make time for yourself. At the very first moment you try to rest, something interrupts you. And then you have a choice dear ones, right there in the moment. Are you going to reinforce the notion that you have no time for rest, or are you going to choose to either ignore the interruption or get it over with and get back to your recreation? Are you going to grant yourself time to rest? God already has.

Some of you say, "I have so much to give and yet nobody loves me," and yet you are surrounded by love! You receive a compliment and brush it away. Someone smiles at you in the grocery store and you turn away suspiciously. Your pet prances for your attention and you say, "Not now, I'm busy." Dear ones, are you going to allow the love that is there for you in your lives, give thanks for it, and expect more? Or are you going to brace yourself and expect disappointment time and again?

These are just a few common examples. Each and every one of you has some beliefs that no longer serve you any longer. Each and every one of you has some situations in your life that no longer serve you. Each of you have some material possessions that you never liked or no longer serve you. Take time to really look at your lives and begin to make changes, inside and out, to be consistent with the life you want to live. For all that is not really you will be falling away, either gracefully or otherwise dear ones. Let go of what no longer serves you with grace, and walk into the lives you've always dreamt of living.

There is no moment without purpose

Remember dear ones that your journey upon the earth is temporary, and so take the time to ponder what you want, to focus upon it and to pray for it. Take the time to allow yourself to dig deep within and see where you are acting in alignment with what you want, and where you are not. Do you speak of your life with gratitude or with complaints? Do you see every situation as an opportunity and a blessing, or as an act of adversity? Do you choose to see the abundance in life, or the lack.

Truly all polarities exist in any given situation. What you focus upon however, you draw unto you and what you withdraw your attention from will fade from your lives. Of course you have to handle your lives. You have to pay your bills, take your children to school, and care for your elderly, but within these responsibilities, can you focus on love? Can you focus on the abundance of spiritual gifts that come from these responsibilities? Can you find the joy? For if you do so dear ones, magic begins to unfold, the spiritual gifts are revealed, old wounds are healed, and you will see God's hand within even the smallest chores of your life. For indeed, God's love is there, waiting to be discovered in any circumstance, at any time, no matter how challenging, tiring, or seemingly adverse it might be.

There is no moment without purpose in your lives dear ones. Enjoy the adventure. Look for the light and the love, and within that truth, you cannot help but feel and create more joy, more love, and more abundance than ever before
