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.

Yesterday I found myself observing an interaction between two people. I was in no way involved in their interaction at all. I did, however, find myself forming judgments about one of the people. After the interaction, which literally only took about 10 minutes, I realized what I had done. I did not express what I was thinking, but I was well aware that I was indeed thinking it. I don’t need to say what the judgment was; just suffice it to say that it was not a loving one. I was so mad at myself for have even gone to that place in my head! I seriously know differently.

I’ve been rolling my behavior over and over in my head. What the heck was I thinking!? I was mad at myself for going there, and I was also very sorry for having assumed the judgment. With a willingness to see the event (my event, not theirs) for what it was meant to be for me, I sat with Spirit/Self. Immediately the door swung open and the Truth stepped in.

I was clearly reminded that what we see in others is exactly what we see in ourselves. What we judge in others is exactly how we judge ourselves. (And I do mean EVERY single judgment, nice or not so nice) I’m not talking about their behavior; I’m talking about how we judge them personally. How with just one look at someone we can come to a judgment in our mind about what we think they are or are not. Granted, we do judge others’ behavior, but we also judge their personality. Clearly the interaction between these two people had nothing to do with either persons behavior as they were simply standing there having a conversation.

With the remembrance I received from Spirit I went back to the judgment I had made. I looked into the mirror and saw the clear reflection of how, in a place within myself, I was holding that judgment against myself.

That awareness in itself was huge for me. Jeesh, do I really still hold that idea of myself?? I am so very grateful for the experiences where I am shown the places where I do not Love myself. They always help me to release old and limited beliefs about myself.

The conversation with Self didn’t end there, however. I was again reminded that what we see in another is what we see in ourselves. That means when I do not see Divinity shining through another person, I have strayed from it within myself. When I see Divinity in others, I am truly seeing it and Being it within myself.

Any given situation, relationship, observation, that we are viewing and judging as…let’s just say crappy…we are actually seeing our own ‘less-than’ assumptions we hold about ourselves. We are given the opportunity to see these mirrors every day, every moment. Using them to see ourselves is huge!

Instead, most of us remain in the defense position within our head. How many of us have stepped into a situation thinking it should be one way, and it turned out to be something completely different? And, how many of us have completely blamed the situation (or other person) for being screwed up, and not our own participation in the creation of that crappiness? It is oh so easy to blame someone else, especially when we assume we are right (or doing the ‘right’ thing). Not that we are wrong, but that we had just as much participation in the situational crappiness than anything or anyone else.

When we can take responsibility for our own thoughts, our own beliefs, our own crap, the situation suddenly takes on a whole new light, a whole new level of understanding. But the best part is that we get to make a completely different choice about who and how we REALLY want to be in that moment.

I’m getting off track aren’t I? lol I can do that…but that’s only because I had that beautiful lesson shine through this morning too!

Let’s just say that I am so very grateful for the opportunity I had this morning. The remembrance of what I see in others is a clear mirror for what I am holding in myself was truly priceless. I am so excited to play in the day today to practice Being in the state of Love and Divinity. I am so excited and ready to be in my own space of Divinity, because, after all, it feels sooooo much better than being in the state of fear and illusion.

I’m looking forward to seeing and expressing my own Divinity…as well as seeing and experiencing yours! Double Woot for recognizing and expressing our Divinity! And another fabulous confirmation…as I get set to post this the clock tells me that it’s 11:11.

Love, Always!

So I was hanging out meditating last night…just me and my Ouzo dog. : ) Tons of information started coming through…reminders really. I mean I know this, but it was a wonderful reminder. Something’s coming. I can feel it. Instead of me trying to describe what I was given, I’ll just write what I wrote as it was given to me. (My own thoughts are in italics)

Life is not a test – it is a choice! You can not fail so BRING IT! (You know how some people say that ‘we’re here to learn’…that’s what they were talking about regarding a test). What will you choose today? Will you choose Love or fear (fear as a limiting believe where we believe ourselves to be unworthy, unlovable, etc). Choose Love. Love yourself unconditionally, whole heartedly…every second of every day. Love Love Love.

Life has nothing to do with having to learn something – how to love, how to be happy, how to have patience, etc. You already ARE all of those things – you just choose not to see it.

And for those of you who are not understanding Love from within…who is teaching you love? Is it the same people who teach you judgment, anger, hate, fear, doubt, etc? If so, then what they ‘teach’ is not really love at all. Love, true Love, does not live in the same place as fear. It never has, and it never will.

You do not need to learn Love – you ARE already Love. Remembrance – remember Love, not learn love.

You choose not to see your own Love simply because you have a belief that you are somehow broken (not worthy, unlovable, separate, etc). That one belief is what keeps you from knowing Love, from knowing your True Self, from living a life of joy, abundance and health.

No one is broken! That one belief, that one idea, is a lie and it is keeping you from Love…YOUR Love.

It is your choice always. Will you live your fear or will you live your Love?

 Nuff said.

In Love,
Trish

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.

I had a session with a client the other day and a message around ‘judgment’ came through that was so simply elegant and profound that I had to share it. The message that came through stated simply:

“Who are we to look at the nose on our face and think ’It’s too big, it’s ugly!’? Who are we to look at a gift that God gave us and see it as something other than perfect?”

The nose was used simply as an example. And in the same breath…

“Who are we to look at someone else’s nose and deem it ugly or wrong? Who are we to see a gift that God gave to someone else and judge it as something other than perfect?”

Why the need to judge at all…ourselves or someone else? Because, we’re taught as children that there is a ‘right’ way and a ‘wrong’ way. We’re taught what is ‘pretty’ and what is ‘ugly’. Who are we to say that ANYTHING on this Earth is something other than perfect? Ask yourself who taught you what beauty is. Ask yourself who taught you what ugly is. Ask yourself why you choose to believe them…and ask yourself why you continue to choose from that belief.

We are all unique, individual expressions of God. (And I italicize that word because we all have a different word for It…choose your own.) God expresses uniquely through each and every one of us. How can we possibly think, for one moment, that we are something other than perfect? And when you see the perfection and Love within yourself…you’ll see it in everyone and everything else automatically.

Leave your judgments behind…of yourself, of others, of life, of death. Live fully who you Are, who you Truly want to Be…and the life you want to live. Don’t worry about other people’s judgments. Live your life…not theirs. Live your Love. Live your Passion. 

Right now, in this moment, close your eyes, take a nice deep cleansing breath, and place a smiley face in each and every one of the cells throughout your body. Your whole body…all of your cells…all the way from your head to your toes.

Tell me…did it put a smile on your face?

How do you want to be right now? Frustrated, angry, sad, happy, Loving…it’s your choice. Put some smiley faces in your cells…

So often we trap ourselves in tunnel vision…thinking that there is only one or two ways (at best) for a situation to unfold. Speaking from experience, there is definitely more than 2 ways to “skin a cat,” if you get my drift. : ) When we step into a situation (and we always do step into it…remember…it’s our choice, and if we’re in a situation it’s because we choose to be there.) we have a habit of seeing only what we’ve been taught to see, or experienced previously. Neither of those visions express the full extent of the situation. Both are very upper level or surface ideas about what is taking place.

Until we take the opportunity, the time, to look beneath or beyond the vision or idea we have, we will never fully understand the reason behind what we are looking at. And…we will never fully experience the situation/opportunity right in front of us.

Allowing for the possibility of more means simply opening up the tunnel vision. And, that’s all we have to do…just open the door. Knowing that there is more to be experienced, even if we don’t know what that more is or how it will get here, is the key. Just sit in the knowing. Just sit in the space of “My brain might not know what that more is, but my Soul sure does and when the time is right the more will be shown to me.” And from there just simply walk through the door that opens.

Our human brains don’t always go deep enough into our True Beings for understanding. They have a tendency to stay at the surface and hash through all the ‘garbage’ that’s already there…all the other old ideas and habits that perhaps worked at one time, but no longer work. Take the time to simply allow…to not get stuck in tunnel vision. And so what if you don’t see another vision at this moment…just allow that it is there even if you can’t see it. Breathe. Relax. It is there…and it will show itself when given the opportunity.

Allow for the possibility that YOU are more…that your life is more…that the situations you are in carry more. Allow for the possibility that the person standing next to you is more. And then remember that what you see in them is simply a reflection of your own beliefs, ideas and images…and move past your own judgment when they do not feel the same way about your beliefs and ideas as you do. Heck, you don’t feel the same about theirs, so why the need for them to believe in yours?

Remember that we are not our situations, our ideas, our illnesses, our issues…but that we Are Divine, unlimited, perfect, unique, amazingly spiritual Beings. We are so much more, but if we continually stand in the belief/idea of “I can’t” then we will never get to experience all that we Truly Are. Give yourself a break…open the door to your Soul and allow it to express fully through the beautiful and unique physical body that you are borrowing.

Enjoy the day. Enjoy the moment. Take the time to step into more…you won’t be disappointed.
