Don't try to fit and you will

So many of you on your planet earth have had times in your life where you feel alone or unloved. It is understandable dear ones. You have been programmed to believe that life must look a certain way, by a certain age, that you must be with certain people, make a certain income, and live a certain way. But in truth, there are just as many "successful" and "love filled" ways to live as they are beings on the planet.

Each of you came with a different desire to grow, a different desire to share, and a very unique and precious design. As you learn to accept yourself as you are, you will naturally find "your tribe." You will attract life circumstances that match your highest good and utmost joy. You will draw unto you all that is necessary to fill your cup and runneth over. The question is not, "Does God love you? Does life love you?" but rather, "Do you love your unique and precious self enough to allow this love into your life?"

A puzzle piece does not try to "fit" amidst all the other pieces. It simply finds it proper place and there it rests with the others that match. So too, dear ones, when you stop trying to "fit life" or "fit" an idea of how you think life should look, or "fit" into other's expectations of you, suddenly you come to life! You are a rose blooming among tulips or a tulip blooming among roses! Or a wildflower blooming amidst a field of waving grasses. When you allow yourself to be "you" then as we've said many times before, you allow the world to "see" you, and to love you as you are. Some will walk away, run away, and criticize you, but these are the ones that don't fit your life and don't support your joy anyway. Ignore them. Let them go! Release them unto their own unique path.

Dear ones, the greatest joy in life is not fitting in where you "think" you "should" but rather being who you are. In this fashion and in this energy, you naturally find yourself attracted to the people, circumstances, and things that support your soul's true expression and your true joy.

The fruits of your love

You have heard us so many times saying, "Listen to your heart now. Live in the present. Find the love now." We realize that this is confusing to some. How can you desire a future, while also living now? The answer is not so difficult. If you feel in your heart right now, that there is something you want to create, then by all means, you are living now. You are loving a dream now. You are loving a solution now. The dream or solution may not be here yet in linear time, but you are loving it now. You are willing to work for it now. You are present to your own heart now.

Say you want to go on a vacation. The thought arises in your heart now. In the present, you take great joy in working a little more, knowing that you are saving money for your vacation. You take joy in the preparations. Your anticipation of the future becomes part of your joy now. You choose to lovingly work "outwardly" now to have what you want later. The thought of your future vacation fills your "now" with love and joy.

However, suppose you find no joy whatsoever in working overtime, but you still want that vacation. Drop into your heart. Dear God I want the vacation but I don't want to work more hours. I guess I will have to grow, surrender, and deepen my faith in your ability to bring this to me. I will have to trust in right timing. I choose to lovingly work "inwardly" now to have what I want. The thought of your vacation and the anticipation of the miracles that will create it bring you joy in the present.

If however you say, "I don't want to work harder! I don't want to wait for the miracle! I want it now! Why can't I have it now?! I will not be happy until I have what I want! I guess I'll give up!. I guess God doesn't care!" we would lovingly tease you that you are simply throwing a tantrum. If you refuse to be happy until you have something external, then dear ones, you are simply in resistance to the point and purpose of your life on earth, and that is indeed a source of suffering.

To suffer now for the sake of joy later makes no sense to us at all in the heavens. To work towards a greater goal with love is beautiful. To suffer now because you are in resistance to growing spiritually is also sad for us to watch because you came to this earth to grow. To choose joy now, confident in the Creator's ability to assist you in realizing your dreams, is to live as the angels do.

Here is another beautiful example. A gardener does not feel that tilling the soil and weeding the garden is "suffering." The gardener realizes that these exhausting and less-than-exciting efforts are a labor of love, part of the greater dream about what he or she is growing and will be harvesting in the future. The gardener chooses a bit of effort "now" as part of loving his or her dream.

If however, a gardener were to say, "I hate tilling the soil. I hate weeding. I despise the effort it takes to grow a garden," then we would say, "Perhaps you do not love the garden enough to be a gardener. Take a step back and see what is true. "Do you need rest before you can feel any enthusiasm as work at your garden? Would you rather work at something else and hire someone to garden for you, and just go out and pick the fruits of their labors? Would you rather admit that you don't want to garden at all and go to your local grocery store?" We would ask this suffering soul to take a step back, a step inward really, and find their truth in the moment.

Furthermore, a gardener knows that at a certain point, after all their efforts, they must surrender and wait for the dream to grow. They cannot control it; they can simply prepare and create wonderful conditions for their dream to grow. They must both prepare outwardly, and trust inwardly.

So when you have a goal, a dream you love, a challenge you would love to overcome, work lovingly towards its realization, either outwardly or inwardly. If however, you feel no love in your efforts whatsoever, take a step back and ask yourself, "Am I just being impatient? Am I in need of rest, balance, or a little reassurance and comfort from my angels? Am I need of a new way of going about this?"

If you don't know the answer, or cannot find your own heart, pray, "Dear God, dear angels, reveal my heart unto me. Show me my truth. What is the deepest truth within me? Do I really want my goal? Do I really want to go about it the way I am? Do I simply need rest or assistance?" Show me my heart. Then take a breath. Breathe deeply into your heart and listen to the truth you feel deep inside.

Your dreams are worthy of your attention and efforts. To the degree you believe in the Creator's infinite ability to assist you, they will come about with greater love, ease, and grace. Work may be required, but not struggle dear ones. Joy can be found in even the greatest efforts if they are truly labors of love.

Love now...

Life can be so much easier than you have been taught! Love wants to pour into your life. Can you get out of its way? Can you release your mind's grip on the problems and challenges so as to create room for the solutions? Can you focus on the beauty you'd like to see in the future, and even better, the beauty around you right now?

We know you all have challenging circumstances in your life. We know you are all amazing creators and you didn't necessarily create these challenges because you wanted difficulty, but rather because you forgot to love yourselves somewhere along the way. So how do you create change right in this instant?

Suppose you have pain in your heart or your body. Can you choose to be kind to yourself right now, to comfort yourself in a healthy way, to make healthy choices for your body, not based on what you think but rather on what your body tells you? If you have emotional pain, ask your spirit, "What do I need for comfort?" – A hug from your angels? Help from a friend? A warm fuzzy blanket or a walk in nature? If you have physical pain, ask your body, "What are you trying to tell me? How can I help you feel better?" Be kind to yourselves. Do not fight your own emotions or bodies. They are the messengers from your soul. They show you the areas in which you are seeking greater love.

Suppose you want something to occur but do not know how to make it happen. See yourself in the desired outcome, allow room for the possibility the Divine might have an even better outcome, then choose to find what joy you can right now. Choose to love something about yourself "now." Choose to love something about life "now." Existing in a vibration of love now leads to more later.

Dear ones, you are all so very powerful because in truth you have the love of the Creator that wants to flow through your loving hearts into your lives. You open to this by choosing even the smallest loving thought, or the smallest loving choice. You can always find something or someone to love - a color, a piece or chocolate, the sky... someone in your past who helped you, someone you hope to be with but have not yet even met, a piece of art, a video on your internet, a beautiful photo, a great meal, a single flower growing up through a crack in the sidewalk that reminds you life springs eternal in spite of all odds... There is always something or someone to love... the face you see in the mirror perhaps? Yes you.

We love you so very much and we know that we are angels in heaven only because we allow the love of the creator to flow through us at all times, for feeling this love is indeed...heaven. And you can have this right there upon your earth, right now, and now, and now again...

Free to be

Many of you on this list are celebrating your Independence Day and yet dear ones, here in the heavens we know you are always free! No one and nothing can ever have more control over you than you give them or it, either consciously or otherwise.

Most of you would never give your power or freedom away consciously. In most cases, it is something deep within you that allows you to feel controlled by life or others. There will always be people who want to control and manipulate you. Earth is a one room schoolhouse! In truth there are times when you have wanted to control others, even if that meant you wanted to force them to make choices to be happy or healthy that they didn't want to make! The greatest freedom of all is simply to be who you are in each moment, and you are love. You can love yourself as is. You can love others. You can love life! This is a freedom that can never be taken from you.

Whether or not anything looks the way you wish, you are free to love. If you are stuck in a job you don't like, you are free to love, and in loving you create a vibration that either corrects the situation you don't like or allows you to leave. If you are in a relationship you don't like and can't get out you are free to love. Love yourself at least. Choose to look at the light attempting to surface within the other. Love your life to the best of your ability and in that vibration things will shift or a door will open.

The freedom to love is the freedom to rise above circumstances that make you feel trapped. The freedom to love is the freedom to escape from the lesser vibrations of others around you. The freedom to love – yourself, other, and/or life – is the freedom to be the soul you are, no matter what your earthly circumstances.

Dear ones, you are and always have been free. Exercise your right to choose love, even if that means loving yourself when you don't feel so loving towards life :)
