Creating 2014

As the year draws to a close, we know you have a tendency to look back and say, "Oh it was a good year!" or "It was a hard year! I'm glad its over." As human beings you give yourselves permission to dream anew at the turning of the clock on midnight, December 31st. But in reality dear ones, you can dream new dreams, and create new realities with every breath you take, in every given moment of time.

In every moment, you are creating a New You. So regardless of what 2013 has brought into your life, take a moment at midnight on December 31st and focus on the spark of light that glows so brightly within your own heart. Imagine at that instant, the light in everyone's heart on earth is glowing brightly, expanding, connecting and uniting you all in one beautiful bright and brilliant sea of light. Imagine that you can see yourself this time next year, and feel the joy of having all your dreams come true. It is magical from our perspective to see into human hearts at midnight on December 31st. Much of the world is hopeful. Much of the world is allowing themselves to dream their dreams. Many in the world are taking the time to do something meaningful for themselves, whether it be standing in a crowd toasting the new year, or staying quietly at home in prayer. There is SO much positive energy in this instant, not because it is the end of an arbitrary marker on the calender, in a scheme of eternal "nows" but rather because humanity chooses to give this moment significance. Humanity chooses to celebrate, chooses to dream, chooses to live in a positive way. So join your hearts in that wonderful vibration of hope, joy, and celebration and allow it to amplify your own light.

What do you want to create in 2014? Write a letter to God, much as many of you used to write letters to Santa Claus... "Dear God, in 2014, I would dearly love your help. Take away my need to control life and help me trust you. Help me feel your love, share your love, and BE your love. Here are my dreams God. Make them come true. Guide me and let me know what to do and when to do it. And if you have better dreams for me, I gratefully accept your gifts and your grace." And then dear ones, list your dreams, great and small, all of them, no matter how long it takes. And when you are done, as you read your letter out loud to God, take time as you read each dream, to imagine you have already received it. What does it feel like. Stop and give thanks. Go on to the next. Repeat this reading/feeling as many times as you like in the years to come, for in truth, this is a powerful prayer, not just to ask, but to tune into that which you seek.

We love you! We celebrate your Presence upon the earth every moment of our eternal existence. Nonetheless, you are human, so we wish you a Very Happy and Blessed New Year, and a New You fashioned according to your heart's dearest desires.

You are a gift!

We know so many of you are so busy preparing for the holidays and yet we ask you to take a minute, sit still, and as you read this, focus upon the light in your own heart. Breathe, and as you do so, imagine that light is expanding beyond your bodies, out farther and farther until it ripples throughout the world. Imagine this light can touch the lost, the lonely, the abandoned, and overwhelmed. Imagine this light can wrap the grieving in a comforting embrace. Imagine this light that emanates from your hearts can soothe the hurting hearts, calm the angry, and bring hope to those who are on the verge of giving up. Breathe. Sit and focus upon this light inside of you and allow it to shine forth in all directions. Take a moment to feel or imagine your light illuminating not only the dark and lonely spaces within your own spirit, but also reaching out like sunlight, touching those in need with the gift of your Presence.

For indeed whether you feel the holiday spirit or not, whether you are filled with joy or crying with grief, whether you are surrounded by family and friends or whether you find yourselves in the depths of loneliness, you are this made of this very light. You were born of this very love. You are the baby in the cold manger, the star in the heavens, the light that burned from the meager oil in the temple. You are the ones that bring hope, inspiration, light, love, and truth to the world. No matter what you are feeling, thinking, or where you find yourself this holiday season, this light is your truth. Turn to it. Focus upon it. Embrace it. Share it. For what you give unto others, you give to yourselves. What you give yourselves, you share with the world.

Your presence on this earth a gift to the world.

So whether or not you are feeling the spirit of the season remember, the baby was born into the cold and the dark. The star shined over Bethlehem in the dark of nights. The lamps burned with little oil. It only takes a tiny spark of love, a tiny glimmer of hope, a random act of kindness to illuminate the darkest of times and the coldest of hearts. This dear ones, is the real spirit of the Season. Share your light. Realize you are the best present of all, and no matter what your circumstances, there is always something to give if you are willing to sit, breathe, and focus upon the very great light that lives within you, waiting to be birthed, burned brightly, and shared with a world in need.

Happy holidays, Merry Christmas, We Celebrate the Season of love and we celebrate You!

Don't compare

While this might not seem like a holiday topic, today we wish to speak to you about the tendency to compare yourselves to others. You see dear ones, we do see so many of you upon the earth at this time wishing you had what others have, feeling as if you have fallen short of the mark somehow because you can't buy all the presents you want, you don't yet enjoy the lifestyle you desire, haven't yet found the means to live in your dream home, or you don't know how to meet man/woman of your wildest dreams... and yet others do have these things.

When you find yourself coveting what others have, remember dear ones, you can have these things too. You can use the tendency to compare as an indicator that there is something you wish to create. You wish to create more abundance. You wish to create greater love. You want to live in a home that elevates your spirit. You want to sooth the world's pains, loneliness, and ills. These are all good things! These are authentic desires. But stop there, because a jealous heart or one that compares is a heart that feels lack, unworthiness, despair and a sense of resignation. A heart filled with truth says, "Oh look at that. I am feeling jealousy. I am comparing myself with others. It is time to acknowledge my heart. It is time to create!" Stop asking why others have what you do not, and simply start creating!

Thank those who have what you do not. If they have achieved their situations in integrity, in a good way, imagine you are in their shoes. What would it feel like? Celebrate! They are showing you the way. Focus on that feeling every day. In truth you want a feeling. You think it comes from a situation or thing, but in truth you can find that feeling just by imagining you have the situation or thing you want already. Your external reality will mirror your inner one. Fill your inner reality with the life you want now, and then watch it manifest in the external world. Spend time affirming, imagining, basking in bliss in an imaginary reality where you already have what you want. The feelings you seek are there all the time. Give into them, and soon your reality will begin to shift. The universe responds always to love.

So when you find yourself saying, "Oh I wish I had what they have," in a way that is jealous, longing, or in any way not powerful, stop. Like a child asking Santa for a present, say the very same thing in a whole different and powerful way. "Dear God, I am making a wish for what that other person has. I feel a desire in my heart. I know I am worthy of it. Please bring this to me in the right time and the right way." And then dear ones, like a child waiting for their presents, know this Presence hears you and is going to work in your life, as long as you, like a child, Believe.

Look for good

In this busy holiday season allow yourself to take time and experience the wonder of being alive. During the holiday season there is very great love present on this planet, emanating not only from the heavens, as it is at all times, but more importantly from the depths of human hearts.

During the holidays there is a desire to look at the small things with gratitude, such as a tiny gift that you know a loved one will appreciate, a tiny kindness show to a stranger, a tiny coin tossed in the bucket for a charitable cause. These" tiny" wonders all spring forth from the One greater love that wishes to rise up within all of you. During the holidays, there is a desire to open your hearts and share your gifts, talents, love, and resources with one another. It is a season in which people realize how much they have already. It is a seasons that inspires hearts that are charitable and souls that are kind. It is a time to stop, pause, look around, and realize that your world is filled with goodness. There will always be those who are lost in confusion and chaos, and yet if you look, there is also so much good in the hearts of mankind - so much beauty, so much kindness, and so much love, just longing for the smallest of reasons to surface.

You are all angels walking among angels. Some of you realize it. Some of you don't. In time you will embrace the totality of the goodness that exists not only within the hearts of others but also within your very own. Take time. Stop. Look around and witness the love coming to the surface, and where you do not yet see it, contribute love, for it is the very nature and essence of God to both give and receive. Happy Holy Holidays dear ones. We celebrate with you during this season of love and good will.
