The little deaths

As many of you approach your Halloween holiday we would like you to take a minute to celebrate the many deaths you have experienced inside of yourselves this year. We're no talking about the deaths of those you love, butt rather the deaths of those habits and patterns of thought that no longer serve you. It is cause to celebrate when these "little deaths" occur, for as you left go of that which does not serve you, you allow your true self to be birthed into greater life.

Death walks hand in hand with birth. When you die unto the physical body, you are born into a more glorious and beautiful reality. When a habit that does not serve your joy dies within you, new patterns of behavior are born which bring greater light into your life.

Let us take a very simple example. Suppose you have had a long day. You are hungry, and at long last you have the opportunity to sit down to eat your dinner. As you do so, the phone rings and you see that it is someone who calls you often to share their grievances. In this moment, you have a choice. "What will live and what will die within you?" Will the habit of jumping up the minute someone wants you to do so, live? Or will the archetypal martyr within you lay down and die in order to give birth to a more honest, loving, and guided reality? Will you resurrect guilt, pick up the phone, and allow your dinner to grow cold while your resentments heat up, or will you allow the guilt to die so a truth can be born that serves both you and this other? For in reality by you allowing the old patterns to die, you bring not only new life to yourself, but also new life to the other. In this examples the person calling may have to find a strength within themselves they did not know they had, or they may have to face their own feelings rather than dissipating them through complaints. This may seem, like a small example, but your lives are made up of thousands of such small moments, and in each moment you have a choice. In each movement you can die to the the patterns that no longer serve you and give birth to the truth. You can resurrect your old unhappy programming, or you can bring life to the light of God's love within you.

So, dears ones, celebrate the many things within you that have died this year, and ponder what has come to life within you in their place. Death has a negative connotation on your planet, but indeed in the heavens, we know that all deaths, be they death of the body, or death of an errant belief, are always and forevermore accompanied by glorious new life.
