Breathe in your future

Breathe! Think of something wonderful you would like to create in the new year! You have just begun to recreate yourself and you life. You have just set your sights down the pathway you desire.

Breathe again. Once again think of something you would like to create or experience in the new year. Now imagine you are at the end of 2015, looking back, feeling the satisfaction and joy of having had this experience. Breathe in that joy. Breathe in that satisfaction. Breathe in that love.

Dear ones, Happy New Year, and Happy New You. You have just put yourself on a path you wish to walk in 2015. You have already felt what it will feel like. You are seeing it with your inner eyes, experiencing that possibility with your soul.

Align yourself with love in 2015 dear friends. Align your hearts with the good you wish to experience. Release yourself from the bondage of negative wishes, fearful prayers, and expectations of disappointment. Use the God-given tool of your wonderful minds to focus on what is good and true. Make your prayers hopeful and joyful prayers of faith-filled expectation. Expect that good comes of all experiences and love is seeking expression in all things.

We love you so very much. It is our wish for you in the coming year, and indeed in every moment of your life, that you would feel the love from which you are created in every moment of your lives.

You are light in darkness

Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Light in the Darkness, and Light rising up within your beautiful, brave, and bountiful hearts.

For indeed, light did not come into the darkness, but rather was revealed in the midst of the darkness. Light always exists dear ones. Light is what the entire universe is made of. In the midst of the greatest trials, one must only look in the most humble places to see evidence of God's love. Whether it be in the light of an oil lamp, a babe in a humble manger, or in a simple flower growing up through a crack in a concrete sidewalk... love is ever present, always seeking to reveal itself, always seeking to grow.

We celebrate your holidays because your holidays celebrate love! Look for love this week! Look for it everywhere! See it in the faces of those smiling and in the faces of those scowling. Look for it in the most beautiful decorations and in the most garish displays of artificiality. Someone loved themselves, their jobs, their families, or their ideas enough to create everything you see in front of you. The first soul to mix concrete loved the idea of a solid platform. The first person to create the jack hammer to break it up loved the idea of change. The first wise man to follow the star loved the idea that God so loved the world. And you dear ones, you so love others that you wait in lines, spend your hard earned money or time, take time to wish others well. You do these things, you create, you sing, you worship, you wish goodness upon others - all because you love.

All love is the love of God. All light is the same light present in the lamp, in the manger. All of you without exception birth the divine in the most humble places and spaces within your lives. A quiet smile for a stranger. A kind word for a clerk. Allowing a rushed and rude driver ahead of you in traffic... These are the moments when innocence and love are birthed in the manger, again, and again, and again.

Close your eyes during this holiday season. Breathe deeply. Feel the light within your heart. Breathe. Receive. Expand. Fill up your cup with love and pray that the whole world would allow for the same. This is our Present to you Dear Ones. a gentle reminder that the light born on Christmas, the light burning in the lamp in the temple, the light that lives and breathes within you is your perfect gift to all of humanity.

Love incarnate

You are all so beautiful! Like ornaments on a tree, each one of you is unique, different, beautiful and in perfect form for each and every lesson you want to learn. You are souls in bodies, and your bodies are not only your vehicles but your teachers. Be kind to them. Take care of them. Treat them lovingly and nurture them in whatever way you please. Listen to their needs. Reshape them if you wish. Create bigger muscles or a smaller waist, but whatever you do, realize that you are so much more.

You are nothing less than the light and love of God in the form of a beautiful human body. In our eyes, you are all perfect exactly as you are! Every wrinkle, every dimple, every freckle, every bit of thin or fat, every gray hair, big nose, crooked tooth.... you are perfect! Would you ask nature to look the same all the time? Not at all. The beauty in the forest or the ocean lies in its great diversity. So too with the human race. It is your diversity that makes you all so very special, precious, beautiful. Your body is a teacher, and it is shaped by the soul for the purpose of its expansion into greater awareness. Love what you think you cannot, and watch not only your body but also your awareness of love transform.

The manger is your body. The light of Christmas is in your soul. The oil lamp is your body. The light that burns unceasingly is your soul. Let your light rise up within you simply by your intention. “Dear God today I want to experience the truth of my being.” Focus on your heart. Feel the love inside of it. Imagine you are that love, that light, simply shaped as a human being, interacting with other people who are also made of that light…whether they know it or not.

Try just looking at life this way today… as if everyone, including you is a miraculous expression of love. Indeed you all are! The light of the season lives and breathes in, and through, each and everyone one of you.

Live authentically...

There is an incredible and dynamic order to the universe dear ones. In all things, you are guided. God knows your heart, your wishes, your dreams, and strives at every moment to fill you with love, to guide you with love, to give you the most pleasant and loving experience here upon this earth.

So in each moment, drop into your heart. Especially during the holidays when you all get so very busy, stop every now and then and drop into your heart, and ask yourself, "Is what I am doing truly in my heart?" Is this shopping what is in my heart, a gift of true love? Is this cooking truly what is in my heart, a gift of true love? Am I writing out holiday cards with love or with duty? Am I decorating my home with love? And if not dear ones, what does the heart truly want? For indeed you are celebrating the birth and burning of of light and love amidst the darkness, and so bring your light into each moment. Love what you are doing or do something else.

Live authentically this holiday season, and then, even if you "get less done," You will love what you do more. Your memories at the end of this life are not based on how much you achieved, but rather on the love with which you achieved it. This holiday season, truly create an authentic celebration of love. Allow yourself to feel that spark of Divine grace in your hearts and in your lights... and in so doing, you embrace the most beautiful and true spirit of the season.

We give thanks for you every day

We know many of you just celebrated your Thanksgiving holiday, but in truth every day is a day for giving thanks. With every breath you breathe, you receive into your being the precious gift of life. Whether your life is difficult or easy, beautiful or challenging, it is still precious life. It is still a gift. It is still an experience that the soul longs for, because there upon your earth, you have an opportunity to master love. Upon your earth, you can bring love even into the most difficult of spaces.You have a chance to embody the love that you are, and in so doing, illuminate the fabric of humanity.
So we in the heavens live in a state of gratitude for your courage, your fortitude, you heart, you love, your compassion, and yes even those things you call "lesser" or "negative" emotions because we know, that beneath each one is an attempt to love.

Mastering love is not about what you "do" for others. It is not about what you "do" for youself... although those things can certainly be expressions of love. Mastering love is really an adventure in allowing yourself to "be" who you are in every given moment, allowing others to "be" who they are in any given moment, and finding your way through life given those realities. It is about being deeply and compassionately honest with yourself and life, knowing you all exist in a state of perfection, even as you are becoming more. The bud is perfect as is the rose. The egg is perfect as is the chick. The seed is perfect as is the fully blossomed plant. There is perfection in all things.

So let yourself be who you are, feel what you feel, do what you wish to do, and then grant others the very same courtesy. In this reality, you create a beautifully choreographed dance of love. We give thanks for all of you.

Never without love

There is never, ever a moment when you are disconnected from Love. You cannot be. It is impossible, because you are fashioned of the very same. You are love incarnate, love taken form, given shape, and allowed free will upon your planet earth. You can choose to experience love or not, but it is always there. You can choose to align you will with love, or not, but it is always there.

The source of all healing, all solutions, of peace that surpasses all understanding is there waiting for you to acknowledge it, to call upon it to heal the ills and illusions in your lives. Love cannot leave you.

So dear ones, when you are faced with a challenge, turn to love. What is the most loving thought you can think? What is the most loving action you can take, for yourself or another? What slight shift from negativity towards embracing the positive can you find within your capacity to choose?

In each moment you have the incredible power to transform your life. Why wait? Start now. Choose love. Love is waiting for you to surrender into its embrace, where it will carry you forward on streams of grace.

Beyond the comfort zone

While we certainly would wish you a happy and comfortable journey upon the earth, there are times when there is great benefit to stepping beyond what is comfortable and "safe" in your own mind. There are times when something feels right, sounds right, looks right, but requires you to see yourself differently, to dance with life a little differently, or to open up to a different perspective.

As you say upon your earth, "If you only do what you always done, you will only get what you have always got." You are all far more capable, far more intelligent, far more resourceful, far more beautiful, and far more capable of loving than you might imagine. You have a strength in you born in the heart of God. You have a light in you born of love itself. You have access to all the information in the universe, if not directly, well then, and we laugh up here... in your modern times... through your Internet!

Allow yourselves to dream of lives beyond what you think you can have. Allow yourselves to try things you are not sure if you can accomplish. Be as little children and you will enter the kingdom of heaven there upon your earth, for a child lives only in the moment, dancing with delight and without worry about whether or not the path they embark upon will "turn out right."

We encourage you to think of one thing you would like to do but are not comfortable doing. Maybe it is going out to dinner by yourself. Maybe it is taking a trip you are afraid to take. Maybe it is speaking in front of people, cooking someone you love a meal, or taking a class you are not sure you will have any talent in whatsoever. Allow yourself in the near future to step just a tiny bit outside your comfort zone... for it is in doing this that you discover that there is so much more inside of you than you could ever have imagined.

God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Love is your greatest success

Within you, the love permeating the entire universe exists, waiting to be expressed. Your life here upon the earth is a series of choices as to how you will bring that love to the surface. What matters most at the end of your life is not what you have accomplished, not what you have produced, not how much money you made, nor how good you looked, but simply how you loved.

So if you lived in poverty your whole life but loved and appreciated everyone in it, we would call your life an incredible success. If you built monuments but lived without love we would give you great compassion as you realize that your life was not what you had hoped it would be before you came to earth.

While your accomplishments are certainly things to celebrate, it is the love with which you do them that is of even greater concern to your soul. So if you have to wash the dishes, wash them with love. Take time to smell the soap and feel the water upon your miraculous hands. If you have to fold the laundry, fold it with love. If you have to go to work to earn a living, do so with love and gratitude that you have work, and if you are not in a place that enlivens your soul, then lovingly begin the process of prayer and manifesting change. Even then, dear ones you can find love inside of you and bring it to the surface.

Even in the simplest tasks you can bring glorious and beautiful amounts of appreciation and love. Even in the most difficult and exhausting circumstances you can love yourself enough to call upon God and your angels for comfort and assistance. When you are sad, angry, or fearful, you can love yourself even in the darker spaces. In choosing to love, you transform your life, one moment at a time. And this dear ones, is the greatest accomplishment a soul can create upon your planet earth.

God bless you, we love you so very much.
Each and every one of you is a brilliant success in our eyes!
-- The Angels

Love in each moment

Breathe… Next time you have the chance, look at the vast sky about you and remind yourself that you are blanketed in love. You are walking upon an earth that loves you. You are surrounded by skies that protect your beautiful planet, give you oxygen to breathe, blow away the debris, and warm you.

Listen... there are soothing sounds all around you. Inhale deeply… see if you can, like the animals distinguish various scents in nature next time you go outside. Touch something with awareness and truly feels it presence interacting with yours. Feel the smoothness of a cup of coffee or tea. Inhale the aroma. Taste it slowly and deliberately.

The world is rich with love dear ones. All around you are sights, sounds, smells, and textures waiting to give you delight. You live in a sensory paradise upon your planet earth. And while yes, we know there are many unpleasant things to focus upon, sometimes unthinkably painful things as well, we gently remind you that there is such beauty, such grace, such joy, and pleasure to be found in your home upon the earth.

You may have much more serious concerns in your life - an aging parent, a troubled child, difficulties with the bills, betrayals, etc., but even in spite of those challenges, you can embrace “stolen moments” of joy. You can say to yourself, “Well here I am in a painful or difficult situation in life, but I am still loved. The creator loves me so much that I have been gifted with an entire world filled with simple delights. Let me enjoy them as best I can.” If you have a stomach ache dear ones you would much rather drink mint tea than something that will upset it. If you have a problem in life, allow yourself to fill your soul with the things that kindly soothe you.

Embrace the love that is offered. Look for it. Notice it, and allow yourself to enjoy it. Let the warmth of the sun touch your face and feel its kiss. Allow the sounds of the birds to sing to your heart. Touch the grass or the bark of a tree, or even your drinking glass and marvel at the absolute miracle of touch.

No matter what life challenges or lessons you face, love is there, in so many diverse forms, waiting for you to receive it.

Light is there in spite of fear

There is so much fear upon your planet earth dear ones, and yet we maintain that there is also so much light. Your reality will be dictated by where you place your focus. There have always been wars. There have always been disasters. There have always been viruses. However there are always areas and hearts filled with great peace. There are always people helping one another after disasters, and there are always those souls who work with the afflicted, unaffected by disease because they abide in pure love.

Rather than slipping into the world's very deep need for companionship in its misery, stay in the light. Love yourself no matter what. Be kind to yourself. Be kind to others and realize that if you are feeling the world's chaos, so too are others, even those who are unaware. Attempt to be more compassionate than usual, starting with yourself and then sharing that compassion with those you encounter throughout your day. For in truth you are all in school together. You are all family. You are all born of the heart of God.

It is so easy to say, "What is the world coming to?" when things get stirred up. In truth dear ones, the world is being birthed into greater light and just as contractions must occur to push the baby out of the womb you are all experiencing contractions. You are all leaving behind the safe old pains, fears, upsets, angers, etc. Unexpressed emotions are bubbling up to the surface in the form of intense feeling, disease, and disasters. Allow yourself to feel your feelings and send them love, much as you would love a little child who is crying or upset. Give yourself the same courtesy you would give a friend.

And when you think of it, blanket the world in light. Imagine all souls glowing from the inside out. When you see someone who is upset, sad, ill, or otherwise not feeling well, imagine that light in their hearts growing stronger. When you feel other than wonderful imagine that light in your own heart growing stronger and more brilliant.

The light is always there. God's love is always there. Focus first on the truth within you, the love and the light that live inside, and there dear ones, is the answer to all ills, all fears, all upsets, all sadness, all wars, and all disasters, for in bringing love to the surface of your lives, even if it is as simple as giving yourself compassion when you do not feel loving... this is where you begin to transform the world.

Energy is in motion

Be kind and gentle with yourselves and one another for everything is bubbling up from the depths within you, within others, and even within your dear Mother Earth. It is a time when the energies are rushing strongly through your physical world. Like the rapidly moving currents of a river after the rains, there is great movement. Everything within that has been stagnant is now getting stirred up.

You see this manifesting in many ways - political disagreements, sudden overwhelming rushes of emotion,volcanoes rumbling, storms, outbursts and moodiness in others. While this can be understandably disconcerting at the human level, we are celebrating in the heavens! Movement brings release, relief, and new life. If you have a stream clogged with debris, the clean and clear water cannot flow. If you suddenly increase the current, however, all the debris is washed away and once again the pure water is free to nourish all in its path. So too, the energy is rushing through human hearts, your Mother Earth, and indeed your entire planet, cleansing and clearing out all that was once stuck.

Be gentle with yourselves. When you feel strong emotions emerging, let them flow and let them go. Instead of taking out your frustrations on one another, simply allow yourself the luxury of loving yourself through your feelings in private. Accept yourself as you are. And then when the so-called negative emotions have run their course, find the love beneath them. What is it you wish to change in your life to be kinder to yourself? What is is you wish to kindly express to one another? It is a time of "getting real" dear ones. It is a time when the mind can no longer pretend to be in control of your hearts. It is a time of allowing yourself full range of emotion, then finding ways to express yourselves, kindly and with love.

The energy is in rapid motion... and ultimately that brings, growth, movement, and wonderful positive change.

Help is always there

There is never a time in your lives when you are without support. There is never a time in your lives when you must solve a single problem on your own. Yet so many of you struggle for solutions to life's challenges without reaching for help from the heavens. We understand that you have been let down by other human beings and we understand that, at times, dear ones, you even expect disappointment from God.

Can you have help in your life? We would ask, "Are you willing to believe and receive?" In truth help is always there. God is always there. Your angels are always there. We want to help you. We want to make your lives easier. But it is up to you to decide how much we are allowed to assist. If you are praying for help, but in your depths have a belief that "no one listens,"or "no one cares," then dear ones we can only help to a degree.

Instead, you can work to stretch your beliefs. You can stay to yourself, "Maybe I have been disappointed in the past. Maybe I don't really trust God. Maybe I should give it another try." Like an innocent child you can pray, "Dear God, dear angels, I have felt disappointed in the past and I still don't know if I fully believe in your assistance and love for me, but I want to believe. Please find ways to reach into my heart and show me your love. Please find ways to help open me kindly and gently to receive." Then dear ones, receive in the simplest way possible. Take a breath. Slowly and deeply intend to inhale love.

We are always there. God is always there. We wait patiently for you to open to fully receiving our help. When you feel your prayers are not being heard, ask yourself, "Am I willing to believe? Am I willing to receive?" If you can't get to that point on your own, ask us for help, even with that. "Dear God, dear angels, help me believe in your love. In the kindest way possible, help me open to receive." Trust dear ones. We are with you as surely as the sun is behind the clouds, waiting to shine upon you and help lend more light to every aspect of your lives.

Desires of your soul

There are within you dear ones, deep desires – ones you are afraid to admit because you don't know how they will come about. And for some of you these desires are at the surface, but deep within you lies a feeling of resignation or fear that they may never come about. In truth each one of you, through these desires is striving to come to know the Creator's love. Although you may feel as if you are striving to know this love through the external circumstance you wish for, in truth you are striving to know this love as it exists within you.

So why are desires in your heart at all then? Why do you wish for a fulfilling career, a relationship, achievement of a goal, or a more beautiful existence, when you all know that happiness is never dictated by the outside world, but rather by your inner conditions? Dear ones, you wish for things because it draws you forward. It creates growth, movement, and change in your lives. It causes you to believe in your own worth more strongly, to summon up your internal power more clearly, and to find greater faith in the love that lives within you. When you achieve these internal changes, your external wishes must, by the vibrational nature of the universe, be fulfilled in some fashion, often in ways even better than you might expect.

So, admit your dreams to yourselves. Admit your fears. Admit the fact that you want help from the heavens in increasing your faith, knowing your worthiness, and owning your power to focus your intention on the positive and beautiful dreams inside of you. Then dear ones, real help will come, the kind of help that is deep rooted, and enables you to know and feel the true nature of your soul and God's love for you - inside and out.

Heavenly Success

Anything worth doing on this planet involves growth, for that is the reason you embark upon any journey. Everything you attempt is, ultimately, an attempt to understand the light and the love that lives within you. Whether you begin a project with the intention to better yourself, to contribute, to earn money, to have creative expression, to help another... or for any other reason, you are ultimately seeking to embrace and express the light within you. You are seeking the joy that comes with embracing and expressing this light. That, dear friends, is our definition of success - to know and feel the joy of embracing and expressing the light within you. And if you do so, human manifestations of "success" will follow.

However, too many times you get lost in the thicket of human thought. Am I doing enough? Learning enough? Contributing enough? Making enough? It is easy to forget that the journey is more important than the destination. We would rather you ask yourself this question, "Am I enjoying the journey? Am I experiencing and expressing love?" If not, what can you do, what can you change, right now, in this moment to make your life more loving? For in doing so, you ultimately "correct your course," "get back on path," and begin to enjoy your lives once again. You begin to enjoy success now, rather than waiting for some arbitrary human goal. You begin to exist once again, in the streams of grace.

Dear ones, we want all of you to "succeed" first and foremost in the spiritual sense, by living a joyful life, filled with love! We know in the heavens that if you accomplish this, one moment at a time, human accomplishments will follow for it is a natural by-product of creating a loving existence. So today, right now... enjoy a moment of "success" by choosing to be kind to yourselves, to give yourself a moment of love and appreciation and to ask yourself, "What is the most authentically loving thing I can do for myself right now, right in this next moment." Breathe, receive, and do it. There... you have succeeded!

Saturday, September 13, 2014

Focus on the light

Celebrate amidst the chaos on earth, amidst the darkness, pain and suffering, because this type of turmoil results from the light attempting to rise to the surface of human hearts. Every perspective wants to be acknowledged now. Everyone wants to be seen as having validity to their being. And everyone wants to be understood as a creation worth of love.

Love, dear ones is not always a 'warm fuzzy feeling.' Real love is an acknowledgment of the truth - that there is one Creator and one light that animates all beings... whether they realize it or not. Love says, "I see beyond your behaviors, your thoughts, your appearance.. deep into the essence of your being. I can love that light. I can love that spark of Divinity. I can love who you really are... whether or not you are even aware of that truth inside of yourself."

In a very practical way, Love can look at even those who hurt your feelings, who treat you unkindly, who lie, cheat, and steal, and say, "I know who you really are! I choose to focus on the spark of Divinity within you, no matter how small or how dim. I will not dignify your dark behaviors, your ill thoughts, you unkind wishes. I will engage with you in a way that is healthy for me, for I respect my own light whether you respect yours or not. I will love the truth of your being, but I will not dignify your darkness." And then dear ones you send them on their way with wishes that someday they too will see their light.

You do not have to dance with souls who do not embody kindness. You do not have to allow abusive behaviors in your life. And as you become firmly rooted and comfortable in the reality that it is healthy and wise to honor the light within yourself, you will notice that it is easier to love even your so-called "enemies." In truth, no soul is your enemy. All souls are your family. Just as in your human families we encourage you to honor the light within all, but as well to create healthy, loving boundaries that honor your own.

The world is indeed in a bit of chaos right now, but you need not dance in the darkness. You can choose with your free will to focus on all that is good, beautiful, and true. You can imagine those who have left the planet, even in the most unthinkably hard ways, happy in heaven, being received with love and celebration. You can imagine beautiful nature springing up and growing over war torn areas, or even more beautiful cities being built, because in time this is what will occur. Darkness, by its very nature, is temporary. Love is eternal.

Creating peace

At times the world may seem overwhelming to you. You look out and see pain and suffering, wars and violence. However from the heavens, we see light attempting to emerge, even in the most hardened of human hearts. So many want their perspective to be acknowledged. So many want others to understand their pain. And whether they acknowledge it or not, everyone, every single solitary soul on this planet longs to reconnect with the goodness and the light inside. That is why you incarnated to begin with.

So when you see the wars and the acts of violence upon your earth, instead of falling into sadness and despair, remember, that you can do something about if - if not on a physical plane, certainly in the realms of energy where all thoughts and feeling originate. You can say to yourself, "You know what... this is not my war. This is not my lesson. This is not the game in which I choose to play. I will pray for all involved. If I am called to do so, I'll help in a tangible way, but if not, I will choose to contribute to the truth, the peace, the harmony, and beauty in life. I choose peace in my own heart, mind, life, and community."

Then, dear ones, choose peace.

Choose not to be at war with yourselves. Be kind to your bodies. When you catch yourself in the act of self criticism, embrace yourself instead. Stop the violence within. Choose to avoid the dramas and arguments with others. If their perspectives do not match yours or how you choose to live your life, make changes. Walk away. Start the process of creating a new job, or a life transition. Better to walk away in peace than stay in a situation at war.

Be the peacemakers - the ones who choose to send love and prayers even for those whose actions are so dark you cannot imagine they have any light within. Send love to those in your lives who hurt you for they too are in need of upliftment. And send love to those parts of yourselves that you would wish to annihilate too for even they need love to be transformed. Listen to one another's perspectives even if you do not agree, for every thought, every feeling, every desire has its place upon the planet earth, whether or not that place is in "your space" or not.

God bless you dear ones. It is both a challenging and an exciting time to be upon the earth. Beautiful new light is emerging, but as always, it will stir up those lost in misunderstanding until they too can embrace a higher and more beautiful reality.

You can live and abide in that heaven right here, and right now.

Accept all within

Be gentle with yourselves this week. Allow yourself to surrender to all that comes up within you. Try your best to accept everything that you feel. No matter what arises in your hearts, tell yourself, “It is OK. I am allowed to feel everything. When you feel something you would normally judge - anger, sadness, jealousy - ask yourself one simple question, “What do I need now?” because all so-called negative emotions are simply speaking to you. They are your soul whispering to you, saying, “Hello, I have something important to say. You have been ignoring me.” Listen, dear ones, to the messages beneath the surface.

When you accept your own feelings you can realize that others are simply learning and growing too. Anger when projected at you, for example, has nothing to do with you. You may have triggered someone else’s anger, but in truth it is theirs, just as your upsets are yours. Each one on the planet now is being asked to own all that arises within them as having value - for themselves. Each one is being asked to dig a little deeper and look at the roots of their own feelings.

You have done nothing wrong, dear friends! Eternally you are the light and love of God having a human experience. Even in your most difficult moods and life circumstance you are nothing less. Your so-called negative emotions are here to draw attention to the illusions that have held you bound, and the conditioning and beliefs that do not serve your soul’s greatest truth. Welcome them when they arise and bring them into the light of your love. If you push them away, they will return until you find the gifts they are trying to offer you, but if you embrace them, you will not only free yourself of old illusions, but you will also allow the more painful emotions to give birth to new joy.

A time of birthing

My dear friends, take heart. There are great vibrations of fear coming to the surface upon your planet earth right now and yet we know these are caused by incredible waves of light. Love is “stirring up the dust” so to speak, causing things to rise up from the depths both on your Mother earth and in your human hearts.

So if you are experiencing fear, anxiety, feelings of tension, unrest, etc., you are not alone. It is simply time to embrace all that is within you and love all feelings as if you were loving the scared, upset, or anxious feelings of a little child.

Embrace yourselves dear ones. Physically. Wrap your arms around your own body and hug yourself! Say to yourself when upset and fear creeps into your mind: "Its all going to be OK. God loves you. I love you. Everything is going to be alright. You’ve done nothing wrong. You are human. You are safe. You are loved.”

Then sit quietly, feeling your feelings, whether they are “desirable” or not and in that space of pure feeling, breathe in slowly and deeply asking us - the angels - to assist you in moving these feelings through you as pure energy Just sit, feel, breathe, and receive.

We understand it is a turbulent time upon your planet and yet so much good comes from the contractions of birthing. A baby in the womb experiences both the dark and the light, the tension and the freedom…as he or she journeys into the light of a new reality. So too, your earth, your bodies, your minds, and your souls are going through the very same contraction and expansion as you birth yourselves into greater light.

Release the dark to free the light

Take heart! As you watch the turmoil on your earth, realize that any turbulence is ultimately caused by a very great influx of light, that by its very nature will stir up the darkness that has been dormant - both in the world and within human hearts. You cannot take a flashlight into a dark room without seeing all the things that are dusty, dirty, out of place, or in need of being discarded. Likewise as more beautiful and refined energies come to your planet, old pains, old upsets, old angers, etc. come to the surface - both to be revealed and healed. This is happening on a social scale, and on a personal scale for many.

However, at the very same time there is great opportunity for growth, ease, grace, and expansion. As you let go of what no longer serves you - ideologies that create separation, limiting beliefs, unloving circumstances, etc. you make room for wonderful opportunities in your life. As you see the old patterns rising up within you, choose to love them, thank them for the growth, and let them go. You are stepping into a greater and more beautiful truth, and hence, a greater and more beautiful reality.

Growing does involve "letting go." A seed must release its pod to sprout. A chick must release its shell. A rosebud must break out of the leaves surrounding it to blossom. A forest must periodically be cleansed by fires. A child must outgrow their helplessness to become a powerful adult. And so dear ones, always, when you grow, when you want more, there will be limitations that you must release. If you want more abundance, you must give up your thoughts of lack. If you want love, you must give up your unworthiness, or your disbelief that anyone would be a match. If you want a better career, you must release the notion that you have to figure it all out all by yourselves. So when you are wanting to grow, to create more in your life, or to be more of who you really are, seek out those things within you that run contrary to your new desires and creations, bless them, and release them.

In truth you never let go of the real you - the light within. You only let go of those limiting beliefs and circumstances that were, in a sense, your "classrooms" for a time. You only let go of what once felt like "shelter" or "protection" and in so doing, you find out how completely sheltered, protected, and loved you really are.

Calming the storms within

There is upon your earth right now a great clashing of forces, and yet beneath it all, beneath the seeming duality, the wars, the storms, the differences in ideologies, there is only one love. The right hand is arguing with the left, forgetting they are all one in the same.

What do you do when you see things going on in your world that at the level of human existence seem both terrifying and terrible? Dear ones you work with those very same forces that live and breathe inside of you. What parts of yourself are "at war" with one another? What parts of yourself do you wish you could "kill off?" What parts of yourself are being repressed, only to erupt later in storms and forceful displays of emotions. For indeed all wars, all storms, all peace, and all sunshine exists within every single human being.

Will you love all parts of yourselves and stop the wars within? Will you all emotions that arise within you, and thus prevent the need for inner... and outer... storms? Will you be the peace and calm when the temptation arises to fall into chaos and drama? Call upon us to help you because we know it is not an easy task now being human upon your earth... and yet, as we see it, it is a glorious time to be alive for the light is rising to the surface in human hearts, bringing with it all that has laid dormant, all that has been repressed, all that has been swept aside and is now in requirement of healing.

It is an amazing time to be on earth, a time when you will see both the best of human hearts, and also some of the deepest pains. For those who choose to love and embrace all aspects of themselves, unprecedented opportunities for help from the heavens is available. For those who choose to repress or ignore aspects of self, well my dear friends, you have seen those among you who are becoming somewhat psychotic as they try to hold back the emotions that can no longer be contained or controlled as easily as in the past.

So how do you weather the so called storms of nature and the storms of humanity? Be the peace dear ones. Stop criticizing and judging yourselves. Stop telling yourself you "should" or "shouldn't" feel a certain way and simply embrace all that arises within you – with love. When you are sad, pray for comfort. When you are upset give private and safe voice to your feelings. When you are tired rest. When you are joyous celebrate. Allow yourself to "be" as you are. Allow your emotions to flow through you in a healthy way without aiming them at others. Allow yourself to love everything that arises within you.
In this fashion dear ones, by changing yourselves, you change the world, one beautiful and perfect human heart at a time.

True Security

There is within every human heart a desire to feel safe and secure. You seek it in so many ways in your human lives. You seek it by filling up your bank accounts. You seek it by locking your doors. You seek it by avoiding eye contact with others, by strengthening yourselves, by avoiding risk, and even by building armies.

And while many of these things are very practical and even necessary in your human reality, it is always the underlying energy that will ultimately dictate how you experience life. In truth safety and security are qualities of the soul that have more to do with the vibration in which you reside. There are those who make money in times of recession. There are those who lose in times of great abundance. There are forces of nature which can wipe away any human wall or boundary, while the tiniest opening in a human heart to receive love can allow the protective forces of grace to flow into one's life. As always, your internal state of being has a much greater influence over your life than your external circumstances.

So, by all means do the practical things in your lives. Don't walk down a dark alley if your instinct tells you not to. Lock your doors if you do not want to expend your energy creating the level of internal security needed to keep intruders out. Save your money to feel comfortable. However, know that your internal state of being will always be a greater force of security than any or all of these things. Surround yourselves with light. Surround your homes with light. Imagine putting light and love into every aspect of your life. For ultimately love is the greatest protection of all.

Like a baby resting in peace and security within a mother's womb, you too rest in the sanctuary, safety and security of God's grace. Unlike a baby however, you must use your free will choose to focus on that reality in order to experience it. In the face of adversity, choose faith. In the face of anger, choose love. In the face of fear, choose to pray and breathe and ask for comfort. In your Creator is where your deepest and truest form of security rests.

So yes, dear ones, do the practical things, for you are human, but also know that safety and security, in the vibrational sense, are already and always there. All you must do is believe and receive.

End the wars in our lives

While we know most of you cannot do much to solve the wars between nations, you can easily affect the vibration of war by ceasing the wars within your own lives. "Wars?" you ask. "What wars are there in my own life?" Dear ones, we would never judge you but we see so many wars within your lives.

There are wars between your head and your heart. You feel one way and you try to tell yourself you shouldn't. You wage war on a feeling, a belief, a perception instead of simply saying to yourself, "Well that is an interesting feeling. That is an interesting thought." You do not have to like your feelings. You do not have to like your thoughts. But can you allow them their expression, often in private, and simply acknowledge their right to be. Even when you are frustrated, sad, angry, jealous, or a million other states of being that you have been taught to judge, can you simply sit with the feeling and allow it to be? For it is only in loving something that you can transform it. Say for example, you are angry. Instead of trying to push it away and pretend you are not, say to yourself, "I am angry. What is this anger trying to tell me to do? How is it trying to tell me to adjust my life? Is it asking me to be more kindly honest with someone about my own needs? Is is telling me to leaven an unhealthy situation? It is telling me I am wanting to manifest kinder treatment?" By embracing your feelings in such a fashion, rather than "Waging War" upon them and telling yourself they have no right to be, you embrace them, take them into your light, and find the love beneath them.

Likewise, you do not have to wage war upon others with whom you do not agree. When someone rubs you the wrong way, say to yourself. "I do not like that person." or "I do not like their behavior." They have a right to be and I have a right to be... what now? Do you move away from them? Do you speak up kindly and just share your perspective without any attachment as to whether or not they agree? Do you simply live and let live? Only you can choose the course of action that feels best, but all of these actions are kinder than what usually transpires between two human beings when they either try to bend their own point of view or personality to fit another, or bend another's to fit their own. Can you meet in the middle? Yes, by all means if you can, we encourage it. But we simply ask you not to "wage war" trying to force another to believe as you do, or trying to force yourself to feel other than you truly do.

Dear ones, all perspectives on this earth have a right to be. The trick to being human is to figure out the most loving way to allow you to be yourself while allowing others to be themselves as well. If you all could truly do this your entire world would sort itself out and there would be no wars. Humanity is far from this reality and yet you can choose peace in your own mind, heart, and life... no matter what anyone else is choosing to embrace.

No Wrong Turns

There are no mistakes dear ones. There are no "wrong turns." There is no such thing as being truly "lost" or "off the path." In truth you are always connected to God. You are always loved. You are always guided. The question is not whether or not God loves you, or whether or not we love you. The question is simply, "Do you love yourself enough to slow down and receive what is always there for the taking?"

So when you feel lost, slow down. Breathe. Ask us for assistance and trust what comes to your heart. When you feel you have made what you consider to be a mistake, learn from it, release it, and move on. When you feel disconnected from God, stop. Choose to do something, anything, that helps you focus on love once again. Look a a picture you enjoy. Watch a show that makes you happy. Breathe and feel the air filling your lungs. Love is everywhere.

There are no wrong turns. There are no mistakes. There is never a time you can stray from God. The sun shines behind the clouds even in the worst storms. The love of the creator is there for you no matter what you have done or not done, said or not said, who you have been or not been. Will you receive it? Will you give yourself enough love to connect to the greater love? Dear ones, nothing can disconnect you. Your entire journey here upon the earth is to help you remember and experience this one simple, and yet deeply profound truth.

Water your dreams

We understand that last week many of you celebrated what you call your independence day. And here we smile because you are all free, always and forever in our eyes. You are free to be who you are, free to love, and free to take steps to follow the desires planted within your hearts.

There is no dream, no desire that the creator has planted within you is too big. No dream is out of reach. No dream is impossible, for as you know all things are possible with God. You may not know how something will be created, and yet that causes your faith to grow, your trust to expand, your heart to open even more deeply to yourself. In truth all desires are planted in your hearts by agreement between the creator and your soul, for one purpose, and one alone - to help you understand that there is no separation between you and the power that creates universes.

So when you have a dream, you are free to say, "Yes, I would like that to come true." You are free to say, "Please guide me as to the very next step. Please show me what I can do to facilitate this dream, to birth it." If you were to have a baby dear ones it is not an act of forcing biology, but rather an act of making yourself ready to receive new life, nurturing yourself while the new life grows within you and surrendering when it it time to give birth . So too for your dreams. Make a space inside of your heart and especially inside of your mind for them to exist. Nurture them with both your faith and your willingness to act when guided. And then, when there is nothing else to be done, surrender, and wait for the situation, timing, and circumstances to bring them forth.

Achieving your dreams, while it may seem "achieving a goal" to the human personality, is to the soul, simply a by-product of the growth you wish to achieve here on earth.

Don't put off life...

Your life is happening now, dear ones, not tomorrow, not some day in the future, but right now. There will always be reasons to put off your joy. There will always be very good excuses. You may not have enough time, money, or energy for your dreams. You may not feel well enough to take the steps to make things happen. Our message today is simple... take the steps anyway, for in moving forward towards your dreams, wishes, goals, and desires, you call forth Life! You call forth Love! You enter into streams of grace in which you receive the support and assistance you need.

It is never in struggling or doing things out of fear from which you attract help. Acting out of fear or panic simply attracts more fearful circumstances. Acting from love, joy, desire, and passion ... That type of action is motivated by love, and in return the universe must echo love back to you!

If you expend your energy in fear-based actions, you will feel drained. You will attract more struggle and chaos. If you expend your energy in loving action you will feel more energized. You will attract more grace and ease.

Don't put off loving action one more second. As you read this, drop into your heart. Breath into it and imagine that spark of light becoming brighter. Ask yourself, "Heart, what one thing do you want to do that I can begin right now?" And as soon as you are done reading this newsletter, honor that heart's desire. Take a small step, or maybe even a large one, in a loving direction.

Dip your toes into the streams of grace so you can be swept away in currents of love. They are always there, flowing, waiting for you.

Everything has purpose

Can you trust that everything, absolutely everything in life is in right order. Everything that happens around you is with purpose. Everything is in a harmonious dance of creation designed to interact in a beautiful dance of love. And when things do not feel loving it is simply born of misunderstanding - either the misunderstanding of those creating the actions, or the misunderstanding of those who bear witness.

But how can such atrocities as murder or abuse be in "right order,” we hear you asking? How can they possibly serve a purpose? Dear ones, at the level of human interaction they are, of course, morally wrong. To hurt or kill another is an unloving action and a crime not only against the other, but also against humanity, and more importantly against one’s deepest and truest essence… which is love.

Nonetheless, beneath every horrible action, we see love attempting to emerge. We see hurting souls crying for their pain to be seen in the most unloving and un-evolved ways. We see those who suffer at the hands of murderers, abusers, and other perpetrators frequently, as angels who are willing, as the famous martyrs of old, to suffer if they feel it would help remove another’s pain. Is this necessary? Of course not dear ones. God asks very few souls to be martyrs, and yet so many volunteer out of a belief that it is the holiest course of action to do so.

If you could only see the decisions made before birth… “I will do anything, anything to wake up this other soul that I love so much…even if it involves suffering at their hand!” In the heavens before birth that is such an easy decision to make, because the soul knows it is eternal. On earth, these spirits - now human - often wonder what they have done to “deserve” such behaviors. No one, and we repeat, no one, deserves abuse of any kind.

And while this kind of choice - to suffer for the sake of another, may seem unthinkable - how many of you have willingly sacrificed your own well being, even in the smallest of ways, out of a desire to help and assist another? This is not wrong. It is a choice. Only you can decide if the choice feelings loving and right for all involved, including yourself.

There are an infinite number of reasons for suffering on your planet earth. Some souls suffer, as the martyrs do, trying to “wake up” another. Some wish to inspire compassion. Some souls leave the earth in seemingly awful ways because they are tired, complete, or in rare cases, curious about transition. Some feel, erroneously, that they “deserve” punishment for past life behaviors. So while at the human level see suffering as “bad” or “wrong,” understand that even the toughest situations on earth have merit and purpose to the soul.

Why do we have this discussion dear ones? Because so many of you feel such sadness when you witness the world’s pain. We in the heavens dearly wish that all souls would choose to grow in a more loving and kind way for themselves and others. But we do not allow the behavior of others to remove us from seeing and feeling the love of the Creator. And you, even as humans, can bear witness to the world’s suffering and still know that each and every soul involved is being given an opportunity to learn more about love - love of God, love of self, and love of others, for as we see it… this is all One in the same.

Stop struggling, enjoy now

You can never be without love, without guidance, or without direction. It is only your thoughts that limit you, and your ideas of what can or cannot be achieved in your human reality. When you pray, so many of you pray in desperation rather than in faith. If you truly knew God's love for you, if you believed with all your heart that the power that made you wants to sustain and elevate you, then you would pray with confidence, trusting that your prayers would all be answered in the right time and in the most beautiful fashion.

Dear ones, you go about life so dearly trying to control every aspect of it. You want things to look a certain way, "so that you will be happy," but in truth so many of you are willing to sacrifice your happiness now in the hopes of a happier future. In truth, you can choose to enjoy your life right now. You can choose to savor the sunrise, or smell the sweet scent of a rose. You can give thanks for the breath your breathe, the roof overhead, and the food that nourishes your body. You can trust that all is in right order, all is well, and if you simply let go in faith, doing what you know to do now and relaxing into the moment, then your life can unfold in ways you could not possibly dream or imagine. You can open up to life, rather than trying to control it. You can pick the most enticing current in the stream and enjoy the ride. You can say, "Ah this feels good right now, let me see where it leads."

Life was never meant to be a struggle. And yet humanity chooses to struggle with life. Embrace it instead. Say, "Here I am, right here, right now! Is there anything I know to do right this second that feels wonderful and supports my dreams? If so, do it. If not, enjoy the moment." Trust life dear ones. It is nothing less than Love interacting with Love in an endless dance of discovering what it can become.

Containers for the soul...

Each one of you is a beautiful part of creation. Each one of you holds within your very being, within your mind, body, and emotions, even within your DNA, the potential to be anyone you choose to be in the whole of creation. However, before you come to earth, you select various traits that you will embody and embrace - skin color, eye color, hair, size, shape, emotional makeup, mental points of view given to you by parents, society, etc. These will be your soul’s “containers” while you are on the earth, until at long last you realize you are not the containers, but rather something so much more.

It is important that you honor these containers for the functions they serve. Love your body as it is now, even if you want to change it later. It is teaching you to love yourself more deeply. Honor your own emotions for they guide you to a deeper truth about what it is you wish to experience in any given moment. They are messages from your soul. Embrace your ideologies because they allow you to explore various aspects of self, while all the while allowing others’s theirs as well.

These containers - the mind, body, emotions - are often called “the ego” and “the ego” seems to have a very bad reputation in your human minds. In reality “the ego” is simply a container for the soul, a little vessel that limits your experience so you can, in a sense, enroll in certain classes her upon the earth. “The ego” is neither good nor bad. It defines your sacred point of view this lifetime - what aspects of the infinite that you wish to explore.

Problems occur when you begin to believe “your ego” is the only right container for the soul - when you expect others to look as you think they should, feel as you think they should, and believe as you believe they should. This is like a glass of water saying to the pitcher, “You should be a glass like me!” or the river saying to the ocean, “Why are you so spread out? You should run through a channel as I do!” or the ocean saying to the river, “Why are you so confined! Relax! Spread out! Let go.”

By all means, embrace who you are and wish to be in any given moment. Be clear about who and what you want in your lives and make no apology for your own sacred point of view. However, allow others their own as well, for their bodies, beliefs and feelings define their classes here upon the earth. Share yours of course, but try to allow others theirs as well. When you embrace your own sacred point of view you can, without apology, move closer to those with whom you resonate and kindly move away from those with whom you do not. You can allow others who respect your particular brand of light to move closer, and you can kindly and firmly create boundaries for those who do not.

While each one of you is part of one great love, you choose to experience this love in different forms during a lifetime, and at different points in your life. Allow yourselves this freedom. Allow others the same. And in so doing, you grant the world a deep and ever changing, but lasting peace.

Wise ones within

There is within each of you a very powerful light, a light that is the light and the love of God. There is within you as well, a great and vast reservoir of wisdom, of all knowledge you need to connect with in order to live your life in joy, grace, and ease no matter what the outer circumstances. There is within you a healer, a part of yourself that knows you, the real you, is already whole and that you must only eliminate misunderstandings and learn to love the parts of yourself that feel unloved in order to create a greater degree of healing. Dear ones the entire universe exists within you if you go deep enough.

So when something in your life is not working the way you wish, assume that the power, the answers, the resources that you need are all available inside of your very own soul. Take a breath, quiet your mind. Go within, and simply say, "Who within can help me?" Allow your imagination to bring forth a picture or a feeling of the wise person within, the healer within, or perhaps the unloved part of you within that wants attention. Allow yourself to connect with an image or a feeling of the parts of you that can help solve the problem. For whether conscious or unconscious, you have energies inside of your soul that can take a shape, a form, a feeling in your imagination and speak back to you - giving you advice, wisdom, or even assistance. These are parts of your very own soul. They are the "angels" within you so to speak, the parts of God's love planted as seeds within your being, before you were even born!

Try it now. Think of an area in your life where you need assistance. Intend that you will only receive help from the wisest and most loving parts of your soul. Take a few deep breaths. Quiet your mind. And then using your imagination say to yourself, "Who within can help me?" Allow an image or a feeling to come to mind. Ask this image or imagine asking this feeling, "What advice can you give me?" "How can you help me?" or in some cases, "What do you need from me?" If the answer resonates with you, trust. Try it. See what comes of this.

There is so much more to each of you than meets the eye, and by using techniques such as these, you can bypass the parts of your logical mind that limit what you know and enter into the vast reservoirs of wisdom planted deep in your very own being.

Embrace it all

Rejoice when you find things within yourself that you think are less than perfect, less than loving, less than beautiful! Rejoice because now you have found areas in your spirit that are in need of love! No longer are they lurking in the darkness controlling you quietly and subtly. Instead they are coming to the surface saying to you, “Look at me! Love me! Transform me!”

Suppose you have said something unkind or insensitive. Perhaps you have done this unconsciously many times in your life, but suddenly you notice. You feel badly. Rather than beating yourself up, celebrate! You’ve seen something within you in need of love. Breathe deeply. Go inside of yourself. Ask the part of you that was less than kind, “What do you need? What do you really want to say?” and then wait for an answer. Every little part within you that you would judge is simply in need of love.

Suppose you have a health challenge. Again go inside and ask the parts of you that are diseased or in pain, “What do you need? What function do you serve? How are you trying to help me?” Acknowledge the service. Bless it. Thank it. Everything, and we repeat, everything, that arises within you is attempting to serve a loving purpose… no matter how strange or unbelievable that might sound.

So dear ones, this week strive to notice the things inside of yourself that you would judge. Ask these facets of yourself how they are attempting to love you, or how they are attempting to seek love. See if you can’t find kinder ways to fill those needs. And in so doing, you bring all that is dark, misunderstood, in pain, or in illusion within you to the surface, to be transformed in the light of the love.

Focus on your eternal being

When you know who you really are, you can simply enjoy the rest of your life as an adventure! You are an eternal soul walking around in a temporary body, and yet your physical life receives so much attention! You believe it controls you. You fear that it will not look as you wish. You identify with your bank accounts, your bodies, your situations in life, the people around you, and yet dear ones the greatest identification you can make, is that with love. For indeed your are fashioned in the image and likeness of God, and that truth alone will transform your existence.

Are you tired of not "having enough"? Then dear ones look into your spirit and see where you are depriving yourself of your own love. Are you wanting to feel better in your body? Then look inside your heart and see where you can feel better in your soul. Are you desiring companionship? How can you be a better friend to yourself and allow others closer to the real you? Always and forever we encourage you to look at your material world as a mirror, and then to ask yourself, "What can I change inside of me first, in order to shift my outer reality?"

You are not the body. You are not the thoughts. You are not the circumstances around you. You are nothing less than a being created from the very heart of God, a being fashioned of love, created uniquely and beautifully from this love.

Embrace the fact that you are a soul. Embrace the fact that you came to learn that you are nothing less than love. Embrace the fact that at every moment in time, whether awkward or graceful, you are attempting to create a more loving reality. And from that perspective, by all means shape your outer world as you wish. Decorate your homes. Choose cars you like. Preen, primp, and take care of your bodies. Your spirit can, if you like create a wonderful adventure here while upon the earth... as long as you remember, you are spirit first, and from that reality, all else will follow.

Bring your best to now

There is a time and a season for everything dear ones, and if you surrender to this you will find that everything in your life flows with grace. However so many of you feel you should be "making things happen." In reality the only thing that matters is quite simple... given the circumstances and needs in your life right now, are you doing what makes you happiest right now? Are you focusing on the most pleasant thoughts? Are you bringing the most loving attitude to the situation in which you must be? Are you moving kindly away from that which does not enliven you and kindly towards that which does? Are you being the best person you can be, right here and right now? For it is in this moment that your life is occurring. If you want a better future, embrace a better now.

Consider this example. You are driving on a road, and you are forcing yourself to take the shortest route to reach your destination. It goes through unattractive neighborhoods. You encounter a great deal of traffic, and yet you insist "I must take this route! It is the shortest path." Alternately, suppose you had taken a beautiful detour - one with gorgeous scenery and very little traffic. Suppose you had chosen in that moment of facing a fork in the road to take the more appealing path? Well, as you might guess, both will get you to your destination. The shortest one may still get you there faster. But when you arrive, what is your state of mind and heart? Are you happy? If not will reaching a destination automatically "make you happy?" We would argue, it will not. And so as you worry about paying a bill, healing from an illness, or creating that which you desire... Enjoy the journey! For life is happening now, and now, and now again all along the way to creating your dreams. You can choose to be happy now, or you can wait until later. We would encourage you to choose your joy right now.

Breath in deeply. Ask yourself, "What in this given moment, given my time, my money, and my circumstances right now, in this moment, is the most loving thing I can do for myself or another. Wait until the answer arises. It might surprise you. It might be too easy. Life is actually very simple when lived one moment at a time!

In truth, this moment is all you have. Live it well!

The greatest power is to love

It is sometimes in your greatest challenges that you find your greatest strengths. In every opportunity there is a chance to feel as if you are victim, or to embrace your inner power; to feel unloved or to bring more love to the surface; to perceive lack, or to find the true abundance. In every moment, you can embrace the greater truth of the Love that is always present, or you can turn away from it and focus on the illusion that it is gone. It is, and always will be, a choice you are given with the gift of free will.

So when you find yourself in times of challenge, ask yourself, "How can I bring more love into this situation?" Perhaps you must have compassion for yourself and reach out for help. Perhaps you can ask for prayers. Perhaps you can be kind to someone else to take your mind off your own problems. Perhaps you can sit and pray and turn to God and your angels for assistance. In changing your focus to love, even in the tiniest measure you begin to open up to the streams of grace. You begin to aim yourself towards a kinder reality. You affirm faith in what is good and true, and deny the illusions of separation.

Dear ones the greatest power of all is the power to love. The greatest strength is the ability to be light in the darkness. The greatest abundance is to find love even in times of lack. Do so, and you will begin to transform your reality into a kinder and more gentle experience of life.

Ask for help

If a dream is placed in your heart, trust that in the right time and the right way everything will unfold in perfection. It is a human tendency to want to spring into action, and this is fine if your actions are passionate, inspired, and guided, but far too often you attempt to make things happen through the sheer force of your will. You actually can make things happen this way. You can work so hard you forget the joy in life. You can tempt someone to love you until they finally do. You can force yourself to lose weight without enjoying the journey. However, dear ones, these "victories" are short-lived for they cannot be sustained. If you lose the joy in life while attempting to "succeed" eventually you will burn out. If you tempt someone until they "fall" for you eventually you will realize that they only love you when you work to "earn" their affection. If you force yourself to lose weight without joy, eventually you will slip back into your old patterns and, most likely, feel great disappointment.

So while you can make things happen and live without heaven's help, a life lived in partnership with heaven is far more beautiful, graceful, and easy. You were assigned angels before birth for exactly this purpose. You were never meant to live without assistance. So when you find a dream in your heart, ask for help. When you ask God and your angels for help, you are asking Love itself to guide you. You are entering into a dance with Love. You are diving into streams of grace. In this dance you must often be patient. You certainly must trust. You will have to act when inspiration strikes or you will lose the opportunity in the moment. If you miss one opportunity another will always be presented. Love does not give up.

Dear ones, we implore you, "Ask for help." Trust that God loves you and wants to guide you in the most loving way (which is not necessarily the fastest) to experience the fulfillment of your heart's desires. As you learn to live in partnership with heaven, you will come to understand that you are None other than Love itself, asking Love to assist. The cells ask the body for nourishment, just as the body requests cooperation from the cells. And as you ask God and your angels for help, we too are nourished and gratified by the opportunity to love and assist you.

Miracles happen when you trust

When you trust your heart and trust life, absolute miracles can be accomplished. The impossible suddenly becomes possible. Seemingly daunting tasks flow with grace and ease. In fact, you are designed to express the love of the creator as it flow through you. To the degree you are willing, you can allow this love to take over and create your lives, accomplish your projects and find solutions where you think there are none. With God all things are possible.

So when you embark on an inspired project, whether it be cleaning out a closet, eating healthier, trying new hobbies, taking a class, or staring a new business or relationship, trust that although you may not know how to make things work, God does. Although you might not know the next step, love always does. Although you may not know the exact outcome, you can trust that it will be exactly what your soul needs to learn and grow.

So when inspiration motivates you to walk down a new path, take that first step, and then the next, and the very next, and so on, until you are no longer inspired. For it is through joy, inspiration, and passion that God's love beckons you to grow. A flower is not inspired to blossom through pain, but rather by the warmth and light of the sun. So too you are coaxed to grow through that light and love of inspiration and joy.

Dear ones we love you. We speak to your hearts by gently and lovingly reminding you what it is that God wants... not from you, but for you.

You are never stuck

In all things you have choice, and while you might not see the choices in front of you so clearly, they are nonetheless there. Even if you see no options in the external world, you always have the ability to choose how you will respond to life. You have the ability to choose how you will respond to other human beings. And you have the ability to choose how you will respond to you very own thoughts and feelings. So in essence you are never ever trapped in a "bad" situation because you can choose to respond with love. And in so doing, you change your vibration and therefore what you will attract in the very next moment. It only takes a second of stepping into a more loving space to change your entire future.

So when you feel stuck, ask yourself, "How can I bring more love into this situation." "What thoughts, words, or deeds most lovingly reflect the truth in my own heart right here and right now?" And then, for your own sake, and in truth for the sake of those around you, think, speak or act in these loving ways. Choose always to honor your own beautiful spirit first; knowing that in doing so, you honor God's guidance within you. And in doing that, you honor the souls around you as well although you might have to disappoint their human egos.

It is rarely your outer actions that have the most impact in your lives, but rather the amount of love with which you live each moment.

Say Yes!

God, as you know is the creative force in the universe. God is always breathing life into your heart. In each and every moment desires are planted and can, if you are willing, be brought to the surface. At times these are what you label "small" desires: "I want a drink of water." "I'd like to have a grace-filled day." At other times, these are "large" desires: I want a house, a relationship, a new path in front of me." In any case the energy is the same. A desire is born inside of you. The minute you acknowledge it you unleash a mighty force into the universe to which the entire universe must respond. If only you knew how beautiful, loving, and powerful you really are...

So don't sabotage your dreams and desires with doubt. When inspiration arrives in your heart, say "Yes." Take action. Know you will have the energy, the time, and the resources you need to make this dream come true... all in the right time and the right way. God coordinates universes. God is universes. This same creative principle can and will certainly operate in your life... unless you dim its light with your doubts. Can you have your dreams? Dear ones, only you can answer that question. We recommend you cast doubt away and say, "Yes, yes, yes!" "My dreams can come true. I believe! I receive!" As you align your entire being with your dreams, the universe aligns as well. Allow yourself to receive all that you desire, for you are the ones controlling the amount of ever present love that flows into your own lives.

We guide you into your heart

You are the creators of your own existence dear ones, and by that we mean that you have been gifted with free will. You can make your choices in accordance with your heart in each moment, and therefore receive the gifts that God wishes to pour into your lives, or you can make your choices according to your conditioning and programming, in which case you will live the life that your conditioning and programming has set you up to live.

In either case, we love you. In either case, we will support whatever aspects of your choices are in alignment with your heart. We will not get in the way of your other choices, nor can we prevent them because God gifted each and every one of you with freedom of choice. However, dear ones, always and forever, we will attempt to guide you deeper into your own hearts so you can be in alignment with the love and divine will for your life. In that space, choices are clear, action is inspired, and assistance can easily be provided more easily.

When your choices are in alignment with your heart, it is as if you are in a sailboat and we can become the wind that fills your sails, easily assisting you towards your goals. When your choices are not in alignment with your heart, we must respectfully step back. You can row the boat in this case. You can buy a motor, but ease and grace will not always come so quickly. In these cases, God is gently whispering, "I am here. All you have to do is be silent. Be honest with yourself in this moment. Seek and you shall find." Seek the truth within yourself. Admit it to yourself. Acknowledge it. Commit to it. Then dear ones, we can assist you in large measure.

We are here to help you find your own hearts, to help you own the Divine light within you, and to assist you in creating the life that your soul very much wants you to have. We assure you this life is far better than anything the mind can conceive. The creator of universes loves you and whispers within you. Be silent. What does your heart want, right now, in this instant. Acknowledge it. Take action if you know what to do. And if not, surrender to asking for assistance. We are waiting with open hearts.

Choosing from the heart

There are many times in your lives when you feel yourself lost in confusion. You are faced with decisions that you fear will deeply affect your future. And some of them, in truth, will. However dear ones God is eternal. God exists now. Love exists now. Always you will make the right choice if you ask yourself, "What feels most loving right now?" Avoid the traps in thinking, "What could give me the most later? What will make me the happiest? What will give me the greatest advantage?" Even in the course of this thinking you are giving your power to be happy away to external circumstances. In truth, you make one choice, then the next, then the next, and in each choice you choose happiness or not.

We do realize that, being human, it is difficult sometimes to find your heart in the midst of so much chatter from the brain. Conditioning has taught you to carefully weigh all the factors in your lives, and this is useful. It can reveal to your the facts which will affect your heart's choices. However, your heart will know an answer with or without facts. Your heart will "feel" Intuitively what your soul needs and wants right now. And when you are happy now, dear ones, we can assure you, you are in a space of ensuring greater happiness later.

So of course, use your human minds as tools to make sure the choices you are making fit your lives, your budgets, your circumstances, but ultimately dear ones, drop into your hearts and then choose from there. If your heart truly desires something, and God is truly guiding you in a direction, there you will discover all the resources needed to make it happen.

We are always with you

Never are you without love, without assistance or without guidance, for in truth God's love lives and breathes within you. When you think your angels have abandoned you, think again. Better to ask, "Have I abandoned my own heart?" When you think God is not listening to you, stop. Ask yourself, "Am I listening to myself?" When you think you are not receiving guidance, breathe, drop into your heart and ask, "Heart what are you trying to tell me now? What do you want?'

Dear ones, God is always present. It is not possible for God to abandon you any more than it is possible for the body and mind to abandon the cells. God lives and breathes within you. God is the sum total of all creation and the infinite love and intelligence behind it. God hears your every word, and reads your every thought and judges nothing.

It is the nature and design of life itself, to respond to your energy - conscious and unconscious - rather than your words. You can say for example, "God I need more money!" but your energy is saying, "I am afraid I will never have enough!" You can say, "Why don't you bring me love?" while your energy is saying, "Nobody is ever going to be right for me." And so it goes that your words may say one thing but your energy may say another. It is very much as if an organ in the body were to say to the brain, “I need more nutrients,” but while at the same time sending signals along the nerves that say, “I don’t know if I even matter.”

Love is waiting to assist and guide you at all times, but you must love yourselves and be honest enough to ask for the real help. Better in the examples above to say, "God remove my fear of lack so I can enjoy a natural state of abundance." "God remove my fear of disappointment and resignation around relationships so I can enjoy true love." "God I love myself. I am human. I know I need help getting my energy in the right space. Please help me now." This dear ones sets you up for success. We love you. We could never, and even if we could would never abandon you.

Keep intentions/release expectations

There is a very big difference between intentions and expectations. Intentions create an energetic commitment to your desired outcome. Expectations are constructs of the human mind trying to figure out how your intentions will come about. Intentions create a “destination." Expectations define how you think the path should look. However, when you release your expectations, miracles are possible. God may have a better path for you than anything you can possibly imagine.

The creator gave you free will. You can take your energy and aim it any way you like. You can leave a lot of room for God to work in your life or very little. You can say, “Dear God I want a relationship and it must be this person!” And then dear ones you may wait a lifetime because the other person has free will too. Far better to say, “Dear God I’d love a very great love that you think is perfect for me.” Then release expectations and trust! The creator of the universe wants you to be happy. God wants loving interchanges upon the planet. You can say, “Dear God I need money! I must get more work!” and then you will slave away as more work is presented to you. Or you can say, “Dear God I would like a vacation, a car, or whatever it is you would like to use that money for.” This leaves a great deal more room for God to work. You could win a vacation. A friend could offer you accommodations. Someone could give you a car. In each case, God’s solution involves Love for all involved.

So dear ones, try to release your expectations of how your dreams“ should” come to fruition. In most cases these expectations only make you miserable! Keep your intentions, your desires, and your prayers by all means, but release your expectations of how they should be fulfilled. Give God room to work in your lives. You have free will. You can narrowly select only one path that you will embrace, or you can open your mind, heart, and soul to receive the unexpected miracles and the beautiful solutions that you cannot even imagine.

As we like to say, God moves the stars in the heavens and makes the seasons turn. Certainly this love can find beautiful solutions to all your dreams and challenges.

Always enough...

There is more than enough time dear ones, to do all that is important to your soul. There is more than enough energy, money, and resources for each and every one of you to live a happy and beautifully expressed life. However it is such a dis-ease in the human condition to focus upon dis-ease and such a misunderstanding of God's love to focus upon, and therefore create, lack.

When you get up in the morning, tell God and your angels what you want help with each day. Give us your "to-do" list and let us assist with your list! Stop worrying about whether you have the time, the money, the resources, the energy, etc. If what you hope to accomplish is a desire planted by God within your beautiful heart, then dear ones, God will support is manifestation.

If however, you find you are not getting what you want at the moment, stop. Breathe. Tantrums, while so very human, do not serve your greater joy. Giving up and guaranteeing disappointment does not serve your joy. Instead faith serves your joy. Trust. Believe that your creator wants more for you than you would even dream to ask.

Say you want some money to pay a bill and the money does not come. You find yourself having to swallow your pride, to ask someone else for assistance. You find this distasteful until you understand you are asking God for assistance through the other. And if the other person is listening to their guidance and their heart, they will give you an honest "yes" or an honest "no." If they are not listening honestly, then they will learn a lesson in listening.

If each one of you simply proceeded with life, as guided in each moment, there would be a beautiful divine dance between all of humanity, much like the divine dance between healthy cells in the human body. There would be recognition that serving self serves others, and serving others serves self. There would be an understanding that a "yes" is no better than a "no" as long as both are honest.

So before you sink into focusing on lack, remember you are connected now and forevermore to the source of ALL abundance, all well-being, all answers, indeed... all-that-is. Put your faith there dear ones. God loves you. We love you. There is plenty for all of you and for all you could ever dream of imagine.

Desires inspire you to grow

All growth is born out of desire. The seeds in the ground reach for the sun because they desire light. The cells in the body send signals to the brain because they desire nourishment. The roots of a tree grow far and wide seeking water. And you too dear ones, grow in greater understandings and love as you reach for the desires planted within your own hearts.

You can "survive" this human existence without much growth if you like. You can remain closed to new experiences, rest in an eternal comfort zone, and "get by." However, while there is nothing wrong at all with enjoying a period of dormancy - nature does the same - sooner or later, like the seed laying in the ground, you will desire growth, movement, and change. At first these desires will seem very exciting to you! They are God's whispers in your heart. "Try something new. Learn something. Open to a discussion you might not have had. Open your heart to a person you might have judged." Energy starts to flow through you as you simply acknowledge these inner urgings from God, the sunshine that beckons the seeds within you to sprout.

And then, all too often, human fears and conditioned responses begin to dampen your enthusiasm. You tell yourself, "I don't know how. I don't have time. I might get hurt. I can't love again. I can't fail again," and on you go, trying so hard to stay safe in that shell, while all the while your soul is bursting to grow. This type of stagnation is far different than dormancy. In dormant periods of life, you crave rest. It feels deep and wonderful. You are content in your inactivity, like a kitty sitting in a warm windowsill. However in periods of resistance, you feel edgy, discontent, desiring movement, and yet filled with reasons why you cannot create change. Resistance feels anxious, confining, and often painful.

So when there is a desire in your heart, acknowledge it, take the steps you know to take, and trust God to do the rest. Open your hearts to the new when you are guided. Open yourselves to life when the desires arise. The very shells you built to protect yourselves will eventually become confining as your spirit yearns to expand. Breathe life into your bodies, your minds, and your souls, by allowing the desires that arise naturally from within to guide you. Life is calling you.

Acknowledge your desires in the moment

In every human heart, in every moment, there is a desire. The desire might simply be to maintain the peace and beauty you are feeling right now. It might be a desire for comfort, companionship, healing, expansion, or growth. It might be a desire for a nibble of chocolate or for a wonderful meal, a gift or talent you wish to explore, or something you wish to be rid of. It might be a desire for healing in a relationship, for a new job, for inspiration, or time for a breath of fresh air. In each moment, dear ones, your heart is speaking to you. God is whispering. "I am here, planting seeds within you."

Take a moment right now. Ask your heart, "Heart, what is it you want in this moment?" Quiet your mind and listen for the first answer that pops into your mind. In the very next breath, acknowledge the desires, and ask God and the angels for help with this. It might seem small or insignificant, and yet as you say, "Mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow." A great tidal wave of love begins with the allowance of a single trickle.

Saying "yes" to your heart is saying "yes" to God. You may have no idea how to bring about the desire in your heart, or you may simply have to acknowledge it and take a small step. It doesn't matter. What does matter is that you pay attention, water these desires with your love and acknowledgment, and ask God and your angels for assistance. If you do this frequently dear ones, you will change your lives, for you will be allowing God to guide you and using your free will to allow us to assist you in creating miracles.

No need to compete

Today we'd like to speak to you about competition. We are not talking about competitions set up for the sake of sport and entertainment. We are talking about the ego's need to compete with others to feel better about yourselves.

In our reality, there is no such thing as competition. We understand that God designed the entire universe to work in cooperation. This love, this infinite intelligence is monitoring all of creation at every moment in time, fine tuning, making adjustments, and issuing new guidance in an attempt to keep creation working together in a beautifully orchestrated harmony. This is very much mirrored by the human brain that, at every moment, receives thousands of nervous signals from the body, and immediately sends out new instructions to the cells in a constant attempt to keep the body in harmonious balance and order.

However, in the human mind competition stems from a feeling of disconnection from Divine love. If you knew how deeply you are all equally loved and guided you would never need to worry about what anyone else on earth is doing! You would not have to compete in business. You would not have to compete for relationships, for attention, for money, or for love in any form. You would feel constantly connected to, and informed by the source of all love. In this reality there is enough money, enough love, enough attention for everyone. In this reality you simply have to be the best possible version of yourself that you can be. There would be no need to compete and no need to be "better" than anyone else, because in truth you are all equal. The ant on the sidewalk and the most brilliant human thinker are made of the same substance - Divine love. They have different functions but they are equally important in the greater scheme of creation.

So dear ones, in practical terms, next time you feel the need to be better, prettier, smarter, more financially abundant, etc., than anyone else, stop yourselves. Tell yourselves, "I simply want to be the best me I can be." Allow others to be role models if you like, but strive to be true to yourself. What delights you? Do it to the best of your ability. How do you like to adorn yourself? That is pretty/handsome enough. Who cares if you keep up with the neighbors or if your ex has more money than you.

We know you you really are and so we see you all as equal... no matter what. You are all fashioned from the love and light of God, no less. You are all in different forms - an ocean of love poured into different pitchers and glasses, but nonetheless an ocean of love. Release the need for any sort of competition or comparison with others. You are all perfect as is, even as you expand into a greater awareness of who you really are.

God loves you more

here are times in your life when God and the angels are trying to love you more than you are trying to love yourselves. These times usually look frustrating to you as human beings, and yet we have the bigger picture. It is frustrating to a child that he or she cannot have candy before dinner, and yet a glorious meal and dessert may be available soon. The adults know this. The child simply says, "I am not getting my way! You don't love me!"

Sometimes for example you want a certain relationship and nothing seems to be working out. Perhaps the divinity within is giving you time to get to know the other to see if you are as compatible as you may think. Perhaps the divinity within is giving you time to build a stable foundation for more later. You may not know. Trust. Trust you are loved. Trust that the divinity within each of you wants only the best for all.

Perhaps your finances are not so great, and you are angry. You want more money! You work harder and burn out and insist you must. Meanwhile God and the angels are whispering, "Please believe we love you enough to help you create what you need in a balanced way." We cannot support such unloving behaviors such as working yourselves to death and burning out. No parent would say to their children, "Overwork yourself and then I'll pay you." The parent would say, "Find work you love and have a passion for and we'll assist you."

Perhaps you are ill and it seems that nothing is healing as fast as you'd like. Maybe you need rest and the light within you is giving it to you in small doses so you don't create larger problems. Maybe you need to learn to receive and allow others to care for you. Maybe you simply need to contemplate how you got sick so you don't repeat this in the future.

Always and forevermore dear ones, God - the light and love that lives inside out of you and in all of creation - is attempting to coordinate the entire universe in loving interactions. Embrace where you are at, even while praying for more. Embrace life. Look at it. Ask yourself what you can learn or how you can bring more love to the situation in front of you. In this reality dear ones, you are embracing truth, riding the waves of love, and entering once again into the ever-present streams of grace.

Lighting up from the inside out

There is, in your hearts dear ones, a spark of light that is the very seed of your being. It is the light of God's love, the purest energy from which you came. It is the light you were created from, and the light you will return to. It is the light that guides you, heals you, and continues to remind you of who you really are.

Take a moment. Take a breath. Imagine that this light is growing, brighter and brighter. Imagine it filling you, expanding past the boundaries of your body, and out into the world, as you grow and glow even more brightly. Imagine it seeking areas in your body that are tight, dense, or frozen in fear. Imagine it warming these areas, these tiny dark spots, and melting them away. Imagine that this light is now being fueled with every breath you breathe. Breathe in and allow it to brighten. Breathe out and allow anything less than this light to be exhales.

Now imagine a situation in your life that needs healing, assistance, or lightening up. It may be a relationship, a financial situation, or something you dream of creating. Imagine it however you like. Imagine now, that you can pluck a spark of this light from your heart and place it into that situation. If it is a relationship, imagine you place this spark in the energy between the two of you. If it is your finances imagine you place this spark in your bank account or on your bills. If it is a situation or desired creation, place the spark there. And then dear ones, as you breathe in and increase your light, imagine that the light of this spark also increases, brightens and fills the desired area of your life with more light, for indeed as you increase your own light, your own love, your own peace, and your own joy, you fill the areas of your life with such light as well. Keep breathing now, for as long as you like, and allow this light to be the fuel that burns away any darkness in your body, mind, heart, soul, or life. As you fill yourself, every single aspect of your life will be filled with this light as well. Do this often, and watch your life transform, for everything in life is more easily changed from the inside out.

Balance

Today we wish to speak to you about balance. We hear so many of you saying, "I feel off balance. I want to live in balance. How do I create balance in my life?" Most of you know what it feels like to be in balance and yet so very few know how to create this state of grace.

In a balanced life you feel centered and at peace. You have been taught that in order to live a balanced life you must find time for work and play, activity and rest, time for you and time for others. However dear ones, our suggestion for living in balance is much simpler. Rather than over-thinking the issue, realize that true balance can only be found in the present moment. Ask yourself one question now, "Do I feel centered and at peace?" If not, ask yourself, "Body, mind, heart, and soul... what do I need right now?" ... right now. Not forever. Not tomorrow. Not something outside of yourself or out of your reach, but right now. To be in true balance is to be in alignment with God's love and grace, and that love and grace is available at any given moment. What is it you need right now to feel centered and at peace? Perhaps it is to breathe deeply. Perhaps you have to ask for comfort because you are worried about a situation and, like a child, you want your angels to come and give you a hug. Ask and sit still and we will gladly come and comfort you. Perhaps you are filling your days with too much activity and you are craving rest, time outdoors, time to put your feet up, time to call a friend. Honor those urges dear ones and you will find your way back into the streams of grace, in which you are always in balance.

Consider the analogy of a tight-rope walker. Balance to this individual is not something he or she can find outside of the present moment. When walking a fine line, one must be in tune with their balance in each moment. To worry about what must be done several steps ahead could be fatal. To think about what was done a minute ago would distract from the task at hand. So too, you walk a fine line, always attempting to bring yourself back into alignment with yourself - with the needs of your own body, mind, and soul.

So dear ones, strive to be present with yourself often. Ask yourself, "Am I centered and at peace?" If not, ask your body, mind, and soul, "What do I need now?" Listen. Honor the guidance, even if it seems too simple. Often you think it is going to take massive changes to live in balance, but in any given moment, it takes only one small choice. You feel off balance when you ignore your inner compass. You feel in balance when you are centered in alignment with the Divine Love flowing through you at all times.

Whether you are a person walking through life, or tight rope walker precariously balanced on a rope high up in the air, true balance is not a static state of being, but rather one that must be assessed with each passing moment.
