More faith...

You are upon the planet earth dear ones because at one point in your existence you doubted your connection with God. You began to feel separate and by the very nature of that feeling of separation, you entered into a reality in which the all present, all loving God is hidden in a myriad of different forms and face. In reality, all that you see is God's love made manifest. You are here to recognize that love, in yourself and in others.

At a very practical level, this means that when you want or need some help in your life, it makes sense to pray and ask God for assistance, because the all loving spirit that created you is present in over seven billion people and a multitude of other forms on your planet. God can move the hearts of those who are even a tiny bit awake to assist you. God can move your heart to talk with someone and ask for assistance. God can direct all of you, dear one,s in a beautifully cooperative and synchronized dance of love if you will only stop, breathe, receive that love, and listen to the sweet and small urgings in your heart. By the very nature of your existence, you are not and can never be alone.

As you surrender to the love within you and pray from that space of loving and trusting the power that made you, your prayers become more powerful and more effective. Prayers coming from love, faith, and trust, are commands that help align you with the universal flow of your life. Prayers coming from fear and a lack of faith are weaker signals dear one, not because God ignores you but rather because God does not want to amplify and support your fears. The energy of a prayer is far more important than its wording! The depths of your heart, beneath your words are the real prayer. Far better to be loving to yourself and be authentic and pray, "Dear God, I know you will care and provide for me in all things, but I do not feel that now. I am scared. Please send me comfort now so that I can trust you once again and live once again in the flow of your grace." This prayer is honest. This comes from the heart. This is born of a true desire to love the true Self and to align wit h God. If you pray instead, "God help me. I need money. Hurry up! Don't you know my bills are due!" there is a sense of urgency, lack, and fear underneath such statements. You are not sending out a loving signal to the universe that is aligned with truth. Instead you are worshipping false idols, giving money your power, rather than giving God power over your life.

So when you pray dear ones, try to align your prayers with faith, trust, and the knowing that you are loved. Recognize you are human and it is ok to ask for help, but ask for the real spiritual help you need as well as for your material needs. For when you get your soul aligned with God, with love, with faith and with your own hearts, then you truly will receive the guidance to create all you want and need. You will dance in harmony with the seven billion others filled with God's love or you will dance around those who do not yet recognize it. In this fashion, dear friends, you live in a state of grace.

A little faith

Today we wish to speak to you on the subject of faith. God does not require your faith dear ones to love you. God does not require your faith to pour blessings in your life. God is always love. God is always sending you blessings. However, your faith is required for you to receive the love and blessings that are always there. Faith is, in reality a choice to believe in that which you do not yet see. It is a choice to believe in the goodness of the universe, and a choice to believe that the power that created you, the same power that plants dreams within your heart, will also work to fulfill them. Faith, technically speaking, is a choice to align your mental, emotional, and spiritual energies with that of love. When you have true, deep, abiding faith, you are like a radio tuning into the frequency of God's love, and therefore allowing yourself to receive this love in your life. When you do not have faith, you are like a radio that cannot find the desired station. Without faith , you are not always tuned into love, and therefore you cannot always receive it.

"But I had faith," some of you say, "and nothing happened." Dear ones, you must have faith in God's love unwaveringly, for in truth, if you really believed in the love of God you would act differently than you do when you put your faith in fearful outcomes. If you believed in the love of God, you would be financially responsible of course, but you would not waste your time on worry. If you really believed in the love of God, you would feel filled and loving towards others. If you really believed in the love of God, you would know that even if your dreams have not yet come to pass, God is working on the most benevolent outcome for your entire life.

God is not a human being, dear ones! God does not require you to behave a certain way in order to love you. God's love is the breath you breathe. God's love is the force that moves the stars in the heavens. God's love is the energy that turns the seasons, makes the sun rise, grows the plants, and yes, at times, allows forces of nature to wreak havoc so that new life may begin again. God's love dear ones, is always there for you. Will you believe in it? Will you search for it deep within your hearts and bring it forth to share with the world?

Faith is not idly sitting by and expecting to win the lottery, for in truth that is often based on fearful thinking. "I am afraid my dreams will not come true. I do not believe in God's miraculous ability to deliver them. Therefore I pick this one way that I may assuage my fears! I want to win the lottery! I want to have lots of money! Then I will be secure! Then I will have faith! Then I will be a loving pearson!" And dear ones, we do exaggerate a bit here, but in truth that is backwards thinking. If you want to win the lottery for fun, fine, create it! But put your faith in God's love instead! Put your faith in God's ability to manifest your dreams. Focus your attention on being loving to self and others, and then dear ones, whether your numbers win or not, you have already won. You have already filled your heart with peace, your days, with love, and your mind with the knowing that you are secure resting in the arms of the one who created you.

Live from the inside out

In this year of 2012, more than ever before it is important to live your life from the inside out. As human beings you have been taught to handle the external affairs of your life first, and yet we would urge you each day, to sit and handle your internal state of affairs. Are you at peace? If not spend time in prayer, contemplation, or sitting on a patio and listening to the birds singing. Exercise, take a little walk, or breathe deeply. Peace is available at all times, whether your circumstances are peaceful or not.

It is not money in the bank, perfect relationships, perfect health or perfect circumstances that "give" you peace, dear ones. Rather you "find" peace more easily inside of yourselves when life is easier around you. Nonetheless, true, deep, and lasting peace comes from knowing that you are an eternal soul, that you will exist beyond death, that your life is an exercise in learning to love and that if you focus on being loving to self and others, then all your needs will be met, and all your hearts true desires brought to you in proper time. Can you trust this dear ones? If not yet, pray. Ask God to help you find the peace that surpasses all understanding. Ask to feel the love of God in your lives. If you feel but a tiny percentage of the love God has for you nothing would shake you from a place of internal peace. And in this reality, you will to attract circumstances that are by their very nature, reflecting that peace back unto you.

True joy is also found on the inside. And yet so many human beings are happy only when they get their way. Why put off your joy when you can find it anywhere, at any time. Truly it is easier to draw forth your natural joy when surrounded by easy circumstances, loving people, and all that you could ask for. But can you call forth love and joy while holding the hand of a dying parent, celebrating their life and their imminent return into a glorious reality? Can you share joy with another even when you have experienced deep loss, knowing that as surely as you have let go of so much, God can refill your life with blessings of even greater magnitude? Can you allow yourself to take in the breathtaking beauty of a sunset even when you do not yet know how your debts will be paid, how your child will be healed, how your heart can find a career that honors your spirit? Can you share a bit of joy with another even when you do not yet feel your life "gives" you joy so easily ? For when you seek out joy, you are uncovering hidden treasures. When you draw forth the love within you and share it with another, you are allowing God to work through you, and dear ones, there is no greater joy than feeling the love of God flow to you, and through you to enliven and lighten the heart of another.

If you want your lives to work, bring forth the qualities you want from within rather than seeking them first in external solutions. If you want more money, draw forth an attitude of prosperity and gratitude. If you want more peace, pray and spend time in silence, or amidst beauty and ask it to rise up within you. If you want more love, be love.

You dear friends, have all you seek inside of you. Call it forth in this year of 2012 and live your life from the inside out. You can live God's way or you can continue to strive to live man's way, always seeking superficial solutions to your problems, and constantly finding you are chasing a moving target when it comes to love, joy, peace, and harmony in your lives. Our words are strong, dear friends, because the energy is strong upon your planet. Our words are loving because we know you are capable of truly bringing forth these beautiful qualities from within, thereby changing not only your internal state of affairs, but also, eventually drawing absolute miracles and wonders into your life.

Cherish Yourselves

Our wish for each one of you in the new year is that you would cherish yourselves, and see yourselves, in any given moment, or in any given circumstance, as nothing less than the love of God made manifest in this world. You are all deserving of love. We ask you this year to choose to be loving to yourselves. You are all deserving of kindness, so choose to be kind to yourselves. You are all worthy of miracles and so believe in them even when you haven't a clue how they might come about. And you all know, deep down, that it feels better and more honest with yourselves to be loving, no matter what the world presents to you.

Anger, upset, frustration, etc., are all very human emotions, and when they occur by all means, let them flow and let them go, but then dear friends, as if you are building muscle this year, choose love once again. Choose kindness. Choose to allow others to have their perspectives without feeling that their truth is a threat to your own. You can acknowledge one another and not agree upon a thing. You can say, "Ah yes, I see your point. I see why you feel as you do, and yet I feel differently and that is ok! We are unique. We are not always supposed to agree!"

But what if someone has wronged us you say? We answer this question by way of example. Suppose someone has taken your money. Well then dear friends, you have choice. You have a legal system you can employ and you also have God. You can say, well then, you have stolen from me and I will take you to court but I will do it with love. I will not fall into fear and anger. A parent correcting a child with love is far more effective than one correcting a child with anger. Alternately, you can say, "Ok you stole from me but it is too much trouble to take you to court and so I will walk away." Keep the money you took from me and bless you. I release you and will move forward in my life with love. God will give me more. Neither choice is a "holier" path dear ones - who you are being on the inside is always far more important than what you do on the outside.

And so this year, strive to bring love into all your choices, into all your situations, into all your relationships. This does not mean life will always be easy, nor does it mean that people will always return your love and kindness. But you will feel like yourself. You will feel better. And if you can't muster up the love for the outside world, at least be kind and loving to yourself.

It takes so much energy to hang on to upset, grudges, unforgiveness, and the like. You do not want to drag these things with you into 2012, dear friends, because whatever you harbor on the inside will make manifest on the outside in greater fashion this year than ever before. Instead, bless your past. Bless those who have wronged you for indeed they are your teachers. By all means, create a kinder reality for yourselves this year, not so much by worrying about which choices to make, but by making all choices with love. Love is the catalyst for transformation dear friends, and each of one of you seeks a greater, happier, more expressed, joyful, and abundant reality.
