A cry for love

When you see pain and violence in your world, it is all too easy and very human to fall into fear, anger, or despair. However, every time you witness "bad news" you are being given an opportunity to love. You are being given a chance to be the lightworker that you truly are.

Instead of hating those who engage in hate filled behaviors, take a moment, and realize that these are the very souls who are so wounded, so lost in the illusions of separation, so filled with fear and self-loathing, that they are crying out for love.

We aren't asking you to like them. We certainly are not asking you to condone their painful actions. By all means use social justice to protect the innocent. However, dear ones, be the love that you are. Use your God given power to focus on the light within all souls – no matter how dim. Pray to elevate the lost, the weak, the weary, and even those bound by the chains of their own hatred, anger, and fear. 

Your soul is set free when you can love the truth & the light within even those most disconnected from it. 

In this loving truth, you are safe and protected. In this reality you are "in the world but not of it." In this reality "although you walk in the valley of the shadow of death, you shall fear no evil." You can, amidst eve n the hells of the world, be the light, the truth, and the comforting presence of heaven.

Let God breathe...

All of nature understands the balance between giving and receiving. The heart pumps in and out. You breathe in and out. The waves roll up and back upon the shore. The trees receive sun, water, and soil then give their fruits. The entire universe is designed to allow the breath of God, the love of the Divine to flow freely through it in endless cycles of giving and receiving.

Humanity struggles with the balance there because it is human nature to over think things, rather than allowing yourselves to simply act in a guided and natural manner. If you were able to listen to your hearts, you would give when guided, and receive when it resonates. Neither would be valued more than another because both would be seen as simply a dance and movement of love.

So why are you afraid to give at times dear ones? Sometimes you are not motivated to do so, or inspired. Sometimes you do not have the resources. In these case, don't give! It is not holy to give out of a sense of duty, out of pity, out of a fear that if you don't no one else will. The Creator cares about all souls and if you are not motivated to give, you can trust someone else will be.  

However there are times when you want to give and you do not. You fear that you will be misunderstood. You fear that the other may not be worthy of the gift. You fear you will be "used." Dear ones if you give when guided, the giving itself is a joy and a blessing... to you too! Relax, release it. When it is a joy to give, do so for the sheer joy of giving, with no strings attached. You are keeping love moving through the universe and through your own life.

More of you are afraid to receive. There are times when it truly does not feel right to receive. You don't need or can't use the gift offered. Receive the love with appreciation and define the thing or service. Sometimes you sense unspoken agreements or "strings attached." By all means, in these cases, feel free to decline the gift.

But sometimes there are times when people offer to give you something you want, need, or could use and yet you are afraid to receive. Most often you are afraid they will want more of you later. In that case, make up your mind that receiving with a gracious heart is all you owe, and ask if there are any expectations in return. 

Some of you are afraid it is weak to receive. You fear it will put you at the mercy of others upon whom you cannot depend. That is like being hungry and saying to someone, "No I cannot accept your meal now because you may not feed me tomorrow." It makes no sense. Receive now and trust the Creator will provide later. Some of you are simply taught that it is greedy to receiving, but we contend that greedy "taking" and "receiving" are two different things. Receiving blesses the giver with graciousness and gratitude. Taking comes from an insecure sense of entitlement. Receive by all means and allow others the joy of blessing you!

Keep the love moving throughout the universe, dear ones, by giving and receiving as guided. Don't allow fear to stop you from either when you are authentically motivated. Then, enjoy the beautiful feelings of love flowing through your life and your heart. You have just allowed God to breathe.

Everyone has a gift

Everyone who crosses your path has a gift for you. There is purpose in every single one of your human interactions, no matter how small and insignificant they might seem. There is a dance going on, universally, with only one intention – to guide each and every one of you back into the arms of Love, back into the realization that you can never be separate from the Divine. Dear ones, everyone is offering you a gift that can help you on this journey. It is your task to "unwrap the Presence."

It is easy to recognize the gift of love in the kind souls. It is much harder to recognize this gift in the unkind ones. We spoke of this last week. They are often in front of you to help you remember to love yourself, to have compassion but not pity, to "forgive them, for they know not what they do."

It is sometimes difficult to see how those who are in need are a gift, but they too help you learn and grow into greater love. Perhaps they help you see you have something to give. They help you value yourself and your talents more. Or they might simply be placing demands upon you so you can learn good boundaries or to honor your time and resources more than you have in the past. 

Some souls offer you the chance to say a loving "yes" while others give you the opportunity to practice a loving "no." So look around you. Instead of saying, "Why are they doing that?" with contempt and judgment, ask yourself a different question... "How does this moment offer me an opportunity to grow into more love for myself first, then others."  

If you choose to love yourselves first, you are naturally going to be more loving. If you choose to care for yourselves first, you will by nature, wish to care for others. If you give, give from the love of doing so, because it honors your spirit and desire to give. If it does not, don't. 

Be authentic dear ones in all your interactions. Be loving and kind to yourself and others... even when you set a boundary, even when you "draw the line," even when you have to walk away. 

Every moment, and every human interaction is an opportunity for love. The moments you choose to love yourself and others are the ones that have deep and lasting value in your lives.

Everyone keeps you on path

It is easy to love those who are loving and kind. It is not so easy to love those who trigger your pain, upset, anger, fear, and sadness. Nonetheless, even the denser, darker, and disagreeable souls serve a purpose in your life. 

Their behaviors may be a reflection of something you are doing to yourself, or a call to be kinder and more loving to yourself. Are you surrounded by critical individuals? Perhaps you refuse to accept yourself kindly. Are you surrounded by those who are angry and rude? Perhaps you are angry and simply need to learn healthy boundaries, or to take care of yourself better. Maybe you are learning to move away from people and situations that hurt. Are others treating you with less than respectful behaviors? Do you respect yourself enough to move away from these?

Dear ones, when someone is hurtful, look at this and say to yourself... 

"How is this individual's behavior highlighting a need to love myself more, to be more respectful to myself, or to treat myself more kindly?" 

"What do I need to change inside of me?"
 "What behaviors do I need to change to either communicate a desire for more love, to move away from unloving behaviors, or to love myself enough to avoid allowing their unkindness to shake me?"

"How can I use this circumstance to motivate me to create greater love and blessings in my life?"


Everyone serves a purpose in your life dear ones. The kind people assist you on your path, and the less-than-kind show you either where you have strayed from your path of love and joy, or where you do not want to go! 

Bless them all, and thank them, if only soul-to-soul, for in truth, everyone on this earth assists you in discovering and creating more love in your life.
