You are never without resources

You are never without love, never without help, and never ever without the resources that God wants you to have to assist others. God is never far from you for God is the presence and the love that dwells within you and indeed within all of creation. When you help another, God is helping another through you. When you receive from another, you are allowing God to serve you through the hands and heart of another. Don't block the flow of love dear ones. Give and receive as you are guided, for this allows God's love to flow unobstructed throughout the universe.

There is an old adage that it is better to give than to receive, and yet as you give your receive, and as you receive so too you give. If you did not need the assistance of your plumber, day care provider, accountant, or lawyer for example, he or she would not have a job. If you did not appreciate beauty the artists in the world would not have a purpose. And so by receiving fully the services and love that another has to share, you are giving them the love and acknowledgement of God. God is working through you, saying to them, "Thank you for being who I created you to be. Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents as guided. Thank you for blessing me today with your Presence."

So too, when you give, as you are guided, you are sharing God's love, not just with another but also within yourself. You are saying, "I have a purpose. I have resources. I have talents. I have a right to be, and I wish to share this with you! God is loving you and the other through you when you give.

And so dear ones, give as you are guided, but also do not hesitate to receive when another wishes to bless you with some kindness that you are in need of as well.

For it is in giving that you receive, and in receiving you give. And in this fashion, God's love is allowed to flow freely through your life, and the lives of those around you. Don't block the love, dear ones. Be the love. Free the love. Receive the love, and share the love! In doing so, you will come to realize your true connection God, self, and others. In this space, there is never ever a feeling of being alone.

If you knew you were loved...

How would your lives change if you experienced the reality that the God loves you so very much that he wants you to be healthy, happy, abundant, and to understand your beautiful interconnectedness with life and one another. How would your reality change if, every time you had a worry, you want to the creator of universes, and said, "I need help. I have done everything I know to do. I can't change anyone else. I can't change the situation. But you can. You are the power that lives and breathes within us all. You are the one that loved the idea of ME so much, you created ME. You imagined me into being, and I know you imagined me happy, healthy, and operating in cooperation with the rest of your creation. I have a challenge God. Help me solve it. Let me know what to do and when to do it. Let your love rise up within me and show me the way."

A prayer like this will change your lives. You are on earth because you felt separate from this Love. You felt you didn't deserve it, or that you were abandoned by it, or that you had to earn this love. And under these illusions you limit what God can give you. You forget God loves you, and you try so hard to merit this love. That is the illusion, dear friends! You cannot merit this love. Whether you think you deserve it or not is irrelevant. You cannot be abandoned by this love. You are made of this love. Your breath is the breath of this love. Your heart beats because of this love. You are nothing less of the Love of God in human form, and yet it is the illusion that you are separate from this love that is the source of all pain.

Try for a moment to imagine that you are on earth, simply because you forgot how dearly you were loved. Can you imagine how much love the creator wishes to pour upon you. If you cannot, stretch your mind. Pretend. Some of you are saying, "Ah yes, we know this!" And others, we know are saying, "Yeah right, where is God. My life is hard. I have been abandoned and abused. I have suffered unthinkable loss. Where is God indeed?" Dear ones, God is inside of you! God is hidden so well you cannot ever find satisfaction from the external universe until you learn to find this love within you. The material universe is temporary. If you open your heart to receive love from the most beautiful sunrise, the sun will still move in the sky. Can you feel the sun within you? If you open your heart to receive love from another human being, that is beautiful, but they are human too and they will at times, forget this love within themselves. Can you remember it within you, even when they forget? Or will you insist that they embody God for you, thus feeling abandoned when they forget?

Dear ones, if you find the love within you, you will be a beacon unto the world, and you will never need to seek light and love from another. Instead you will see the light inside of others. You will celebrate that light. And when that light dims out of misunderstanding or forgetfulness, you will not forget. You will not feel God has abandoned you when people abandon you. You will not feel that God is unloving when people are unloving. You will not feel that God wants you to earn love when people want you to earn love, because you will be living in truth! You will know your value as an incarnation of this love. You will trust in this love, knowing it provides for all your needs and guides you in right action. You will be able to lovingly move away from unloving behavior and lovingly seek out the company of kind souls. When you make loving choices there is no need for guilt, shame, or even anger to justify your actions. You can love yourselves and still have love for other s. You will realize that loving choices for self, even if they upset others, are just points of growth for all souls involved.

You ARE the love of God made manifest dear ones. Find it inside yourself. Acknowledge that you are loving, kind, and compassionate soul and when you are not, gently remind yourself that you just forgot. In this space, you become everything you intended to be upon this earth, for the success of a lifetime is not measured in achievements or the acknowledgment of those around you, but rather in the loving quality of the many moments of your life.

New choices, new chances

So many of you agonize over the choices in your life. Life, dear ones, is just an adventure of the soul. The choices you make about your inner conditions are always far more important than the choices you make about your external conditions. When faced with external choices, it is human nature to ask, "Which choice will make me happier?" "Which choice will make me feel safer?" "Which choice will protect my heart?" Although it is indeed very human to ask these questions, from our perspective external choices will never make you feel happier, safer, or more protected. Nothing external can every truly dictate your internal conditions.

Far better to say, "I intend to be happy! I choose what makes me happiest now!" "I intend to be safe. I feel safest in the moment, by making this choice." "I intend to have a heart filled with love. This choice feels most loving to myself now." And then, dear ones, in the very next moment of choice, make choices once again based on your happiness in the present moment.

Your mind is useful in making choices. You can weigh the pros and cons of a situation. However, so many times there are no clear answers. Sometimes even the heavens cannot give you a definitive answer on how your choices will play out in the future because there are 7 billion people on your planet, each with the gift of free will. We can guide you as to the best choice for yourself now, and in the next moment, and in the next, and this is why we suggest you make choices based on how you feel "now" and "now" and "now" again.

For example, suppose you are considering purchasing a home. You ask, "Will this home make me happy? Will it be safe? Will it be a good investment?" You can research some of those questions. You can look at the neighborhood, the history, and the financial comps. You can have a home inspection. You can due the diligence that you must do as a human being, and then, knowing all you know, dealing with the facts rather than any wishful thinking, you can check in with your heart. Given that this home is a reasonable investment, needs a new roof in the next five years, and needs some work now... given that it is a certain cost, now, in this moment, given all those facts, how do I feel about buying this home. Your mind collects data so your heart can make a clear decision.

Likewise if you are considering getting into a relationship it is prudent to use your mind, but allow your heart to be the final authority. Get to know the other person. Talk to them. If you want a relationship, relate! Learn about the other so your mind has an understanding of who this person is and how they like to live their lives. Your heart will easily know if you sense love or not, but your mind can also be useful to determine if this is someone you can live with. With all the facts in front of you, without wishful thinking or denial, then your heart can say, Given who I know this person is, either I can or I can't live with them. Everyone is lovable, dear friends! But not everyone is livable!

So by all means, use the gift of your minds when making choices, but after you have all the facts you can gather, sit quietly without wishful thinking or denial and ask your heart, "Give all I am able to know now, in this moment about this choice in front of me, how do I feel about it?" Does making this choice enliven me "now" or does it inspire fear. Is it right, right now? Does it feel happy to me, right now? If not dear ones, perhaps it is not the right choice, for right now. Be kind to yourselves. You have new choices presented to you each moment of your life. If you bypass one, God will give you another. You cannot "mess your lives" up unless you ignore your hearts. And even then, with the very next breath, you are given new choices, and new chances.

Be kind to yourself

Be kind to yourselves. It is a time on earth when the energy is very intense. Your sun is active and it is bringing new light and catalyzing new growth upon your planet earth. You will feel this in different ways.

Some of you will feel intense inspiration and a drive to get moving in your lives. Take action when you feel it. Allow this energy to inspire you and carry you forward.

Others will feel extreme fatigue as their body, mind, and soul cry out for balance. Honor this and rest more if this is what you are feeling. Your body is trying to become accustomed to the new frequencies and you cannot do so easily when you are exhausted. Be kind to yourselves. Allow the rest when needed.

Still others will feel as if the proverbial "rug" is being jerked from under their feet. What was not working either inside of your mind, or in your outer lives is being exposed and you now have a choice as to what you wish to carry with you, what you wish to transform, and what you wish to leave by the wayside. Be honest with yourselves. Look at any unhealthy and unproductive beliefs and patters. Clear the clutter in your minds, hearts, and lives and make adjustments to focus your thoughts, words, and deeds more clearly upon the priorities you wish to espouse. Choose faith over fear. Get help if you need it. You are never alone.

This energy is so strong dear ones that you can use it any way you like. It is like a powerful wave that can carry you forward if you walk in focus and faith, or can tumble you in its power if you give into fear and ignore your hearts. It is a wave of nothing less than love that is coming to your planet earth right now, touching your hearts, and wanting to wash you clean and clear of the past. Are you willing to let go of what does not serve you, be it material possessions, attitude, or beliefs? Are you willing to focus on what matters most to you?

You are given a fresh start with every breath you breathe. A simple change of mind, change of attitude, or change in behavior can begin to change your entire life. One self-loving thought, one gracious thought about another, one small step towards a goal you have always dreamt of creating... these tiny loving choices that support your priorities in life are not so tiny after all with this great wave of energy backing them up.

Be kind to yourselves and others. Rest when you are tired. Act when you are inspired. In this fashion you can ride these waves of energy safely to the shores of God's love.
