The results of our beliefs effect our lives far more than we are aware. The results of our choice between Love and fear have major ramifications on our lives. Oddly enough, every choice we make (or judgment) on external issues is a direct reflection of how we believe ourselves to be. Every choice we make lets the whole world know exactly how we feel about ourselves. Not only can you see what others feel or think about themselves, but they can see your thoughts and feelings as well. Pretty interesting huh?

Holding a personal belief in your intrinsic self-worth is the best investment you can make. Remembering exactly who you are and where you come from is the only thing that stands between you and Source…your True Nature…God…what ever you want to ‘name’ That. The only place to experience just that…that connection…is in your heart…in the quiet of your heart, in the stillness of your Soul. That, my friends, is the only place where you will find, feel and experience the Love that you have always been and always will be. (You know, the love that you are craving from something or someone outside of yourself!)

What is important is that you are aware that you carry God/Source/Spirit within you always. Know that you are connected. Acknowledge that you are One. Feel Source in your heart, in your Soul. This is what is important. Everyone has his or her own beliefs. Each is there to serve a purpose, a piece of the journey. Know enough to change your beliefs when the time comes. Search always for more. Experience always more. Love always more. Love is never ending. If it ends it was not Love, but a need within your ego. True, unconditional Love is never ending. You are never ending. See the connection?

wings9   My Angels are pushing me again, so I happily oblige and share another excerpt from the book. This book is not mine, even though it has my name as author. The book belongs to Archangel Michael, for he is the one who wrote it…he just used me and my computer.

Again, Archangel Michael’s words are Italicized, mine are regular type. If you get stuck on the wordage of God, please feel free to insert what ever word, sound, feeling or phrase that fits your description of All That Is. Enjoy.

All space is sacred and blessed. Some points in your linear world may hold stronger energy, but all space is blessed. All space, every space, is sacred. Even when you think a heinous act is being committed, that space is also sacred. While you see ugliness, there is actually beauty there. See the beauty. See the cycle, see the Love. Do not cry for those who choose to move on. Do not cry, celebrate. Know also that you too will follow. You always do, you always will. Do not get caught up in this world of duality. Do not get caught up in this world of material possessions. They are meager. They are non-existent. There is only Love. Do not compete, for no person is better than the other. You are all the same. Come from your heart, come from your soul. There is where you are ‘safe’.

All flows through me, I flow through All.

Those things that distract you let them flow through you as well. Do not give them any attention. Let your attention stay in the light. The distraction will flow through you quickly, as long as you do not block it by focusing on it. If you must focus on it, see it for the Love that it is, nothing more. For every moment is beautiful. Every moment is filled with Love. If you do not block the energy the first time around you will see that it carries Love. When it becomes blocked and you begin to fight it that is when you can no longer see it as Love. You begin to see it as a burden; you begin to fear the change that it might bring. Do not resist. Let the energy flow. Let the Love flow. Maybe if you can see it as Love you would not resist it so much. Enjoy your day, enjoy your life, and enjoy your experience.

I have been called to action…again. It seems that perhaps I have been working too diligently in my own journey and have forgotten one of my agreements. A very long time ago, what seems perhaps an entirely different lifetime, I dedicated my days to working solely (or perhaps that should read Soul-ly) with Archangel Michael. He graciously helped me to open my heart and remember and experience my True Nature…Love. From those conversations and experiences I wrote a book. It was always his request, his knowing, that I share that information. I agreed. The book was written and self published. Those who needed to find it did. Yesterday I found that book again. It has been many years since I picked it up, and I was surprised, thrilled and deeply touch to find that the messages are still profound and absolutely relevant in my own life. It was then that Archangel Micheal reminded me that I agreed to share this. This time, I share it through the internet, perhaps just one message at a time, but I will share it none-the-less because…it is time and I said “Yes”.

When I opened the book yesterday I happened upon Chapter 4…so, that is where we start today. Again, these are writings of my conversation with Archangel Michael. My comments are in regular text, Archangel Michael’s are in italics. Where ever you find the word God, Universe, Spirit, One, Goddess… please insert which ever name you have given to your Source.

Why do we limit ourselves?

Good question. Because that is what you are taught from others, those who don’t know any better or any different because that is what they were taught. Those who wished, from the beginning of your time, to control others. They wanted to control out of fear. They did not understand, and to this day their legacy lives on. Their fears live on. They have passed them down through the generations. You can stop that. You can change that not only for yourself, but also for others. Do not perpetuate the fear any longer. Do not perpetuate the lies. Know your True Self. Know that you are sacred, that you are beautiful and perfect in all that you do. Know that all of your needs are being met, constantly, through Love, through the Love of Source. It is you who turns them away. It is you who does not believe. It is you who can change that, and only you. If you believe in your heart that fear exists, so shall it be. You will then create those things that you fear. If you believe in your heart that there is Love, then so it shall be. You will create those things you so Love. Love of the Soul is different than love of the mind. Unconditional Love or Love of the Soul is where You are from. Open your heart and see the Love within yourself. Feel it deeply. Share it with others. Do not fear the unknown. Live for today. Breathe right now. Source will provide. It always has, and It always will.

Nothing is unbelievable. Believe in everything, especially yourself. Believe that Spirit is with you, in you, Loves you all the time. There is never a time when Spirit does not Love you. When I say you, I mean all of you, everyone, one and all alike. Believe that you are so much more. Believe that within you, you hold the key to all the wisdom, all the knowledge, and all the answers. You hold the key to life, to Love, to creation and everything that goes with it. Trust your heart. Love yourself as Spirit Loves you…perfectly. You are perfect in all that you do…ALL that you do. There is never a time when you are not perfect. There is never a time when you are not Loved. There is never a time when you are not connected to Spirit, to the One. Feel it. Every day. Every moment. With every breath. Share this. Your passion lies within this. Believe it.

We are born of Love, we are created of Love…and that never changes within us. We may forget sometimes, or perhaps most times, but what we are created of never changes…not even a little. We have been taught that our outer world is more important, it is where meaning and happiness lies. This is not the truth. I think that most of us, by now, have come to realize that our outer world is NOT where meaning exists…it is NOT where happiness is. Now is the time we may be asking ourselves…if not out there, then where? There is only one place where some of you may not have looked yet…within.

Phooey! I hear you say. Phooey indeed! You are no longer satisfied and happy with your outer achievements…so go within, what do you have to lose.

The source of reality is inside of you. It is your essence! It is what you are made of! It is you! As we evolve into the 5th dimension, more and more of us are beginning to recognizing this aspect of self. Some of us are moving into this space easily, some are resisting. It can be a difficult shift to release the beliefs of separation that we grew up with. We have to face the fear of the uncertainty of the choice to leave behind a ‘known’ way of doing things and step into the unknown. What if we do it wrong? What if it doesn’t work? What if I screw this up? Then what? 

I find that most people have a hard time letting go of those fears (or of anything actually) unless they have something else to grab a hold of. Usually they prefer to grab a hold of something that they know (or is solid) so that they don’t have to face their issues of trusting in the unknown. This alone keeps people from going within. The fear of the unknown can be debilitating. But, it doesn’t have to be. The more the focus is on the fear of the unknown the more we get stuck there. Focusing on fear, of any nature, keeps us in the state of fear, keeps us experiencing the same thing over and over, nothing changes, and nothing moves.

What most people don’t realize is that the simple act of going within brings us to Consciousness. That Consciousness is all intelligence in the Universe! It is everything, all things. When we shift our focus within we begin to experience the Truth of existence. New beliefs are formed from this experience and the old beliefs, the ones that are no longer productive for us, simply fade…all by themselves. Simply by shifting our focus and experiencing a new understanding, the old beliefs vanish easily.

I think that we all have an intellectual knowing that there is no such thing as separation, that we are indeed the Soul/Universe/God/Spirit. Our societal teachings and beliefs in our ego minds however, take center stage. It’s time to cross that bridge into Oneness.

There is never a time when we are separate from anything! Nothing! No thing! We do not need to perform any acts to create Unity, it is already there. We do not have try harder. We do not have to be smarter or better. We are already One. We have always been One and we will always be One. That will never change. We only need to be aware of it. That awareness happens when we take that trip within. It is simply a shift in focus. A choice, a simple choice, of where you would like to put your focus. You can choose to focus on the illusion of separation or in the Truth of Oneness.

Our lives are created, and lived, through our choices. If we choose to focus on fear, even though it truly doesn’t exist, we will live it constantly. If we choose to focus on Oneness, we will live it constantly.

This is a choice that needs dedication, focus and awareness. The more we choose to focus on within, the easier it gets to stay in that space. We have been focused on fear for so long, that it has become a habit. Changing habits take time, awareness and dedication.

There are several ways to shift your awareness to within. The word meditation strikes fear in the hearts of most people. I find that this is because they don’t understand meditation. They are led to believe that meditation means they have to turn their minds off. People’s first reaction is “I can’t do that!” and so they won’t even try. I’m here to tell you that meditation is not about turning off the mind, it is about focusing it so intently on one specific thing that it facilitates going within.

Yes, you do have to sit quietly…but once you get the technique down, you can do this anytime, anywhere. Although I do sit to meditate, I often find myself doing at other time, like while I am washing dishes, brushing my teeth, taking a shower, or walking my dog. It is not a difficult task. Don’t let your fear, or misunderstanding of meditation stop you from trying this.

Sit quietly (or while walking in nature, but something quiet) and undisturbed. Choose to focus on one thing. It can be a prayer, a single word or mantra (Om, Shakti, Bliss, etc.). Silently repeat the word or words to yourself, letting them settle naturally into your awareness, becoming softer and deeper. Continue for at least five minutes, or for as long as you like.

If your mind sneaks in with thoughts like “I should be doing something else” gently shift your awareness back to your prayer or mantra. Simply choose to focus on the mantra instead of the voice in your head. If you focus on turning your mind off, it will only get louder. If you focus on the mantra or prayer, the voice in your head gets quieter all by itself.

Have no expectations about what will occur during this exercise or where will take you. Go into this with an open heart and open mind. Do not try to direct it, allow it to take you where it will. Practice this exercise as often as you can during the day. The more you practice it, the easier it gets, the deeper within you go and your experience changes. This exercise works to remove the artificial boundary between the isolated ego-self and Consciousness (your higher self, Universe, Spirit, God, Soul).

I send all of you Love, and would love to hear about your experiences with this exercise!

Love, Always!

This weekend I had the opportunity to sit next to a woman during lunch. We were both attending a function in town and this was our lunch break. Of course the conversation turned ‘spiritual’. She was mentioning that she was in a stressful place and trying to decide whether or not to “…hand it over to Holy Spirit” (yes, she is studying A Course In Miracles). Call it what you will, Holy Spirit, God, Universe, etc…they are all the same and she calls It Holy Spirit.

Anyway…I had to laugh…simply because ‘Holy Spirit’ already has it, always has, and always will. Our choice to hand it over hasn’t a damn thing to do with whether or not ‘Holy Spirit’ takes it. The ONLY thing we are holding onto, with our dear life for that matter, is an idea. An idea of how we want our world, a specific situation, a relationship, etc, to look like. And 100% of the time, if we are struggling with that situation (which is why we would hand it over to Holy Spirit) that would clearly indicate that it is not serving us…yet we fight so hard to make it work. Meanwhile, ‘Holy Spirit’ is gently reminding us that there is another way…if only we would let go of the idea that is causing us stress! LOL

Seriously, I had to laugh. Who do we think we’re kidding anyway? Why are we so determined to make our lives (relationships included) look and feel a specific way? (and, it’s a way that nobody is having any luck with to boot.) Because, ‘that way’ is an idea that has been handed down to us through the ages. Nobody, OK, very few people, have questioned, and even fewer have decided not to follow. Talk to those who have decided not to follow the old idea and I guarantee you will find some very happy (Truly happy) people.

Take relationships for example. We (as children) are conditioned with an idea of what relationships are supposed to look like…whether it’s a friendship, romantic relationship, work relationship, etc…and we believe in the promise of what that relationship will bring us so much that we totally give up everything that we are in order to make the relationship work. And I do mean ‘work’, the way we were conditioned to think it works. Here we are, holding on desperately to a relationship with someone else that is obviously not working, while totally letting go of the most important relationship we will ever have…the one with ourselves.

What’s sad is that the relationship goes sour and we then blame ourselves. We continue to self-sacrifice, blame and belittle ourselves (and others) because no matter what we do we just can’t make it ‘work’. Well of course it won’t work! What kills me is that we are so ‘hooked’ on what the promise of that relationship brings us that we totally deny our own Self. And then we wonder why we’re sick and relationships don’t work?

You’ve heard me say it before…at least I think you have…THE MOST IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIP YOU WILL EVER HAVE IS THE ONE YOU HAVE WITH YOURSELF. Yup! Here we are, holding on desperately to a relationship with someone else that is obviously not working, while totally letting go of the most important relationship we will ever have…the one with ourselves. And, here we are totally ignoring our relationship with Self simply because we think that another person, outside of ourselves, is the one that will make life perfect for us. Well, I’m here to tell you that the one that makes life perfect for you…IS YOU. Nobody else can do that for you…EVER. Now, I’m not saying that we’re meant to be loners all of our lives, simply that we’re meant to come together for a very different reason…and one that does not look even remotely close to what we think it does.

We get so mad when our partners and friends don’t see us for who we are. Hell, when all we do is wear masks all day, trying to be what we think the other person will like, how could they possibly know us for who we are? Really. We’re too afraid that we won’t be liked, won’t be accepted, won’t be Loved…so we try to be something to ensure that we will.

We get so made when our partners don’t behave the way we want them to behave. Well of course they’re not, and it’s not fair to force them too. And besides, why should they? The only reason why we want them to is so that we can feel better about our own ideas and judgments about ourselves. Not fair at all. Because even when the other person does respond to our NEEDY request we often find something else about them that needs to be changed. How about we simply change ourselves to realize that everything we will ever need lives inside of us. We do not need another person to do or be anything else. And when we stop making them be something we want them to be, allowing them to Be what they want to be, maybe then we’ll see them for who they really are…as well as see ourselves for who we really are.

Love. It goes a long way…all the way actually. It enables us to share with others who we Truly are while others share what they Truly are, free of judgments.

Love. It bridges gaps and brings people together in ways we could have never dreamed.

Love. It’s all we need because everything lives within it. Love, Universe, God, Holy Spirit…is everything…and we are not part of it, WE ARE IT.

Love holds NO requirements. None! If you need someone to Be a certain way before you ‘love’ them or ‘be friends’ with them…than you’re not in a loving space at all. At that point, you are using them to fill your own false ideas so that you can feel better about yourself.

Love. There’s the smile. There’s the warmth. There’s the joy. There’s the bliss.

Love.

Each and every one of us is on this journey (ride is more like it) for the same purpose. We are all very unique, expressing who we Are in different, creative, fabulous ways. We are all heading in the same direction, and we will ALL end up in the exact same place…or state of being rather. Each and every one of us is going to the same place, just using different ways to get there.

I was reminded, very clearly, this evening that the biggest (only one, actually) hurdle for each and every one of us…no one left out…is the idea, the belief, the knowing that we are part of the One, that we ARE in fact, One. So if that didn’t make sense let me say it this way…the belief that we are separate from God/Universe/One creates all of our heartache in this life…every single bit of it.

Of all the issues that show up in my sessions, I was reminded tonight that the concept of Oneness is THE one that gets in the way. All other issues are a product of our ‘forgetting’ that we are indeed, One…all other issues are a product of our believing that we are separate from the One/God/Universe.

Think about it…wait, I take that back…feel about it…go to your heart with this information and see how it feels…the idea of not good enough, never enough (period), I can’t, always wrong, not accepted, not normal, not balanced, etc, etc, etc…all of those ideas stem from the simple, one and only, belief/idea that we are separate from our maker/God/Universe/One.

Every single issue! Every single limiting belief is fueled by the same idea…that we are separate! Some people spend their entire life trying to shift the belief that they are not enough…only to discover that no matter what or how much they ‘do’ it just doesn’t change how they feel about themselves. Of course it doesn’t. If you treat only the symptom, the dis-ease will still remain, and usually come back with a vengeance. However…if you shift the actual cause…ta-da instant shift. Of course I won’t say instant ‘healing’, because in my experience we are not broken, hence there is no need to heal. A shift is more accurate because it is simply a remembrance that occurs.

Can you see the implications, the possibilities in this? Can you see that whole lives can be changed by shifting that belief? Never mind whole lives…whole WORLDS!

So many humans know this concept of Oneness conceptually…but so very few actually live it. It’s in the living of this idea that the Guru’s, Master’s, and Teachers describe as a state of Being…as a level of Mastery. THIS is the spot where Compassion flows through each and every one of us. This is the spot where all the hopes and dreams that we hold in our heart come to life simply through a breath. It’s the spot where all of those hopes and dreams are made manifest simply through living the belief of Oneness.

If you knew that all of your hopes and dreams could be made manifest through changing your beliefs…and that being basically the only action you had to take…would you do what ever it took to shift that? Or would you continue to futilely try and manipulate the outer world to match what you held in your heart?

I’m tellin’ ya…it doesn’t work that way. Manipulating the outside to make the inside feel good isn’t how it works. It works the other way around…the inside is what makes the outside.

Oneness! All! I flow through All, All flows through me. Yes, we know it. Yes, we’ve heard the theory. Yes, we would love to experience it. Yes, it’s Truth. But our beliefs still settle into the idea of separation. And every day, nearly every moment our lives are filled with attempting to live by the rules of a society that doesn’t have a freakin’ clue. And we really know, on a deeper level, that society is misaligned…and even though we want so badly to rebel and send society into space, we continue to live according to its ideas. Sometimes we become really bold and shift how we follow those ideals, but in the end, we are still succumbing to the ideals. And then we wonder what the hell we did so wrong as to end up in a place that hurts so much.

HA I say…absolutely HA! It’s not that we’re doing anything ‘wrong’…it’s just that we forgot that there is another way of ‘doing’ this thing we call life. We are so attached to our humanness, attached to the idea that we’re limited because we are human, that we don’t even try to live life any other way than what we’re taught as children.

Now’s your chance. Here’s your wake up call. Here’s your information. We are ALL One. I don’t care who you are, what you choose to believe at the moment, or where you think you’re better than someone else…we are ALL ONE. And what a glorious One we are. Now its time to walk the talk. Live the knowledge. Be what you know conceptually to be ‘true’. Embrace it. Embrace your Truth and then express it and experience it. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
