There is a symphony being played in the natural universe that is extraordinary dear ones. All of nature works in cooperation. You too are intended to live this way, guided in each moment, moved by the very force of love that creates you and breathes life into you.

Last week we discussed relationships. This week we continue on our topic, for indeed every relationship upon your planet earth, if you would allow for it, is orchestrated in love. You are guided naturally towards those who will help you learn to love yourselves more. If you are already clear on what you want, kind to yourself, and loving towards others you will gently gravitate to those who uplift your spirit and kindly withdraw your energies from those who do not. You will fall in love with yourself first, the true self, the loving, kind, God created self, and from that sense of fullness, you will have clarity about your "dance" partners here upon the earth. You will see what you call "the red flags" in those relationships that perhaps do not serve you so kindly, and you will give you own knowing more credence than what others may tell you. You will communicate with kindness, knowing you are innocent and worthy of the same.

When you "fall in love" remember, that you "are" already love. You are made of this love. To love another is a natural state of being! To love yourself is also a natural state of being but one that the human race has trained you not to accept. Look at a baby. They are in love with their fingers and toes! They marvel at the sound of their voice and play with it, seeing how magical it can become. They enjoy looking in the mirror for the first time and seeing the wonder of their physical form. Babies have no self criticism, no judgment, no false pretenses. They know they deserve love. They cry out with no apology when they want something and they expect their needs to be met. They welcome those who feel warm and loving and push away from those with whom they do not resonate. You came ito the world this way. You came into the world innocent, filled with a sense of wonder and awe for the magic present in all of creation. You came into the world innocent and pure, knowing exactl y what felt good in any given moment and what did not.

This innocence still resides within you. This purity still resides within you. This knowing about what feels good in any given moment still resides within you. You have to stop doubting yourselves and trust all that you feel, and then you will once again experience the magic and the wonder in the world, as well as in your relationships. A baby might fall in love with someone who picks them up but the minute that person stops paying attention, the baby pushes away, cries for someone else, or crawls away to play. So too you can engage in a dance with life, rather than trying to categorize relationships, or lock them into place with expectations.

When you truly acknowledge the God given love within you you cannot help but love and appreciate your being. You don't need to justify or defend your desires, you can simply communicate with love. When you truly love yourself, you exist in a natural state of being in which guidance is something that is simply present as a knowing within you. It is not something you have to strive for, but rather something that arises without any thought whatsoever.

Love, dear ones, never hurts. Love is never wrong. Love is never foolish. To love and acknowledge another is truly living in a natural state of God-given grace. To love and acknowledge your own feelings, whatever they may be, is also to live in a natural state of God-given grace.

Only when you stop loving yourselves and expect another to make up for that lack do you hurt. When you love yourselves, even if another does not you know you have choices. You can request changes with love and kindness. You can change yourself, or you can withdraw your energy. You can deal with the reality of another's being and remain in love, or you can fall into wishful thinking and denial and remain in pain. It your choice dear ones. Love always feels better. Love is always right. And Love will always clearly guide you in each moment in the great dance and orchestration of life.

Real love comes from within

Today we wish to speak to you on the topic of relationships. All relationships whether the ones with your life, your home, your spouse, your children, or your pet, are teaching you about the relationship you have with yourself. The relationships with others show you very clearly what parts of yourself you are willing to bring to the surface in your life and what parts of yourself you are willing to let go. For in truth, dear ones, all energies exist within you and you choose which ones you want to experience.

Seldom in the human race is "falling in love" truly about loving another. Far more often you are falling in love with yourself in the presence of another. In the mirror of a kind soul who acknowledges you, pays attention to you, compliments you, and resonates with you on many levels, you feel good about yourselves! We celebrate when you feel this way! We love to see you acknowledge the truth of your being - that you are beautiful inside and out, worthy of all love and acknowledgment. But we also know, that if you perceive that this sensation comes from another, and "fall in love" with them for that sensation, then dear ones you can just as easily "fall out of love" when the other ceases to make you feel this way, and you can be tempted to try any number of human machinations to get the other to make you feel this way again.

Real love comes from a spring of well-being within you. Real love says, "I already know I am loved! I already feel good about myself. And from this full place, I have love to share. I see this person in front of me. They are worthy of love, respect, and acknowledgement. I want to share myself with them. I want to learn more about them. I want to uplift them. I want to support their goals and dreams. I want to take delight in their presence. I want to see how deeply we can share ourselves with one another. I want to see how we can grow together and experience and expand the love of God within ourselves." If you are not there yet, dear friends, don't despair. This type of love is rare upon your planet earth.

So how do you create truly loving relationships with all of life? You must, absolutely, start with yourself. If you take care of yourself, do kind things for yourself, create balance in your life, try to be honest and authentic in your expressions, and reach out for help and comfort when you are in need, you will find that you have created the relationship with yourself that you so desperately want with another. In this space, you are a beacon and a light in the world! You will attract those of like mind and heart, and you will find yourself drifting away from those who have other journeys. You will live a life centered in yourself, knowing that the true self within you is centered in God's love. You will have fallen in love with your true self! And in this space of truly embracing God's love and presence within you, you will find yourself falling in love with all of life, creating the magic that was intended to be a part of your daily lives, not just in a relationship with one human being, but in all your relationships. This, dear ones, is heaven on earth.

Fear not...

When fear grips you, dear ones, you can choose to turn your attention to the truth of God's love. Fear was designed to be a biological reaction to a threatening situation - one that would create fight or flight, and then be done. Fear was designed to be a fleeting, momentary state of being, triggered only in dire situations. However, fear has become instead, a force in the human race that possesses you, pretends to protect you, and in reality keeps you locked in the chains of so-called safety when in reality your spirit longs to be free from this bondage!

Fear makes you believe you must not take risks, when your heart gives you clear guidance to do so. Fear has you protect yourselves beyond reason, when in reality your heart knows when enough is enough. Fear has you silence your truth when in reality your heart longs to speak. Fear serves no good in this capacity dear friends for it blocks the movement and the flow of God to you, in you, and through you. Fear, in this capacity is a false idol. God's love is the only truth? Which one will you worship?

When fear grips you, be it large or small, ask yourself, "What are the real circumstances right now? Right now am I under attack? Right now is my life in danger? Right now is my life falling to ruin?" Chances are, that is not the case. Fear in the human race, has grown into a disease that projects into possible futures, and changes the way you act now. You fear that someone will be upset, so you silence yourself. But right now your heart says, "Speak up! Speak with love. Don't hold your truth inside of you." "But what if people don't like what I have to say," you ask? We would respond that love will guide you all into your right places. If everyone were honest, everyone would end up in their perfect circles.

Fear tells you that your finances will run out way before you retire. And yet what is the truth now, in this moment dear ones? You have enough now. And if you exist in a space of love, gratitude, and trust, then you will always be guided to have enough in the future. If you exist in fear, you make decisions that do not come from God's love and then you create your proverbial messes. In reality, existing in love allows you the greatest guidance in each moment of your lives.

And so when fear strikes you and you cannot rid yourself of this energy, sit, breathe, pray, and receive. Ask God to remove the fear from you. Breathe slowly and deeply. Look at the facts. Pray for guidance in the moment - guidance that comes only and always from love.

Loving kindness is your truth

Treat one another with loving kindness. It will change your reality. What if you knew that everyone you met, everyone you interacted with, and everyone you saw on the street, on the news, and in your neighborhoods was a living, breathing incarnation of God's love. What if you knew that every person was held close to the heart of God, beloved by angels, and no matter how unthinkable their behavior, good at the core of their being. What if you knew that they, like you, no matter how unconscious they may seem, are really also on a quest for love? How would you treat one another then dear ones? We implore you no matter what actions you take in the physical world, no matter what words you speak, try your best to come from love.

For in truth, the person that cuts you off in traffic is in need of love or they would not be behaving that way. The person that acts in an angry fashion around you requires your prayers. The one who is insensitive and unkind is really a hurting child. Dear ones, we are not asking you to remain around unkind behavior, nor are we asking you to stuff your feelings. We are not asking you to remain silent when you feel compelled to speak. We are simply asking you to be kind to yourself first - to treat yourself with utmost sensitivity and care, and then from that space of loving kindness, to base your words and deeds in love as well.

If you correct a child, or an adult behaving like a child, you can do so with love. If you walk away from a barking, snarling, snapping dog, or a barking, snarling, snapping individual, you can do so without any need to defend or justify your actions. you can simply move away and keep them in your prayers, for in truth, they are in desperate need of peace.

Your world would be a much better place, if instead of sinking into the darkness of those around you, you chose to remain in your light. Some would find comfort an step into the light; others would run away and remain in darkness. However, you would find that all of humanity would sort itself out into groups of like mind and heart and you would all be much happier.

So try, do your best, to allow your words and actions to come from a space of love... love of God, love of self, and then love of others.
