All things exist within a cycle…it is within a cycle that All things exist.
It is within the cycle where there is balance.  All cycles are naturally balanced.
It is within the cycle where there is health.

When cycle is disrupted the balance is disrupted…illness occurs.

Resistance can disrupt a cycle. (Especially our breath cycle. We often hold our breath when we are in some form of resistance).

Cycles occur everywhere and there are too many different cycles to count…from the 26,000 year cycle to the simple cycle of the breath. Seasons, a human life, one day, one week, one year, astrological cycles. The list goes on and on and on.

I have been receiving downloads for several weeks now regarding cycles partly due to my resistance of some of them…like winter mainly. In order to facilitate my realization “They” asked me to list my resistances. I was quite surprised at how many I listed! Seems I am more resistant than I allowed myself to believe. No wonder I had a 3 day migraine! Lol

Balance is the current lesson here, for me, not just cycles. I needed to understand cycles though in order to understand balance.  So if I needed to put myself back into balance, I asked…So then where is the easiest and fastest way to balance?

The answer…”The breath and nature. THAT is where “life” truly is.”

I sat in my yard breathing simply and rhythmically. Nothing fancy, just allowing myself to breath. Staying focused, staying with my intention of just allowing my body to breathe.

As I moved with my breath I actually began to feel not only my body balance, but my brain. I could feel the migraine let loose. I spent most of the evening out there breathing. So simple. I remember someone saying recently that ‘we can only do what’s next.’ For me, it was breathing.

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?

It always amazes me how Spirit shows up in every single thing we do…in every moment…whether we are consciously aware of it or not. If we’re not aware of it, it is only because we choose not to be aware. In that moment we choose to be aware of something else…our pain, our issues…where ever the ego leads us.

This week, as I process my own pain, I am reminded (constantly!) that every moment, every point, every instance, in life’s journey is inherently preparing us for our future in ways that the ego mind cannot possibly comprehend. I know I’m getting this message because I’ve been trying to figure out (in my mind!) just why my body is doing what it is doing, and how I can make it respond a different way that suits me better. I’m laughing like crazy as I write this! If you can’t hear the irony in that sentence it is because you are doing the same thing, but not realizing it.

Listening to your “self” talk can be absolutely eye opening! We can learn so much if we would just pay attention to the words we use when talking to ourselves…and others too. First, did you catch how I was trying to do this all in my mind. The mind will never comprehend, nor will it be able to solve any (ANY) issue I am having. All of that occurs within, where the Truth lives and understands the Path. Then…did you hear me say that I wanted to make my body respond differently? In a way that suits ME better? LOL Seriously, I know better than that. By forcing something different on the situation all I am doing is frustrating myself and resisting my path. Yea, it’s painful physically sometimes, but if I were to just relax into it, it would move much faster. I know this!!! But, yes, sometimes I still get ‘stuck’ too.

If we could just relax into the moment, instead of trying so hard to make it something different, it wouldn’t hurt so much. We are raised to not believe in mystery, in Spirit. We are taught that we have to have a plan; we have to have a goal. We are raised to believe that we have to have a good job, good marriage, good kids, good whatever…in order to have a good life…down the road. Down the road! No wonder we can’t relax into anything.

We are rarely taught to trust in the Divinity of Spirit. We are rarely taught to relax into what is in life as opposed to what it will be. We are taught to focus on the future, and rarely taught to be in the present. All of the things we are taught to work so hard for…a job, marriage, kids, etc…are supposed to bring joy at the end of the line. However, Joy can only be found in one place at a time…and that place is the present.

It doesn’t matter where we are going tomorrow; it matters where we are right now. If we don’t find the joy in today, we certainly aren’t going to find it tomorrow. We will find in tomorrow exactly what we find in today. Like I said, sometimes it is hard to find the joy in the pain that we are having today.

I am participating in a workshop currently and last week we were discussing problems and how to come up with solutions to the problems. We were asked to pair up and discuss a current problem, and then come up with a solution to that problem. When my partner and I paired up we both looked at each other and said the same thing…I don’t have any problems. We both laughed at the prospect, but it was true. When it came time for us to share with the class what we came up with, we of course announced that we had no problems. I found it funny how the entire class went silent…except for one gentleman. He said “Of course! You’re perfect!” He was being sarcastic…completely sarcastic. Their responses were all basically the same “How can you not have any problems?”

I don’t have any problems because I don’t see the issues in my life as problems. I see them as life and steps that Spirit guides me through in my evolution. How can anything Spirit moves me through be a problem? I mean, honestly, almost any experience can be miserable and considered a problem if you make it that way…especially if you’re good at making yourself miserable. But…on the other side of that…almost any experience can be enjoyable if you make it that way…especially if you’re good at practicing joy!

I find that most people can’t trust what is occurring in the present because it doesn’t look like what they want it to look like. Hence…it’s painful. We are so trained to believe that life should take on a certain look and feel, that anything outside of that is resisted. We are trained to look to the future and work damn hard at getting there, that we completely push aside what is currently sitting in front of us. “Well, what if I don’t like what I am sitting in?” Well, have you tried asking Spirit why it looks the way it does? What is the ‘lesson’ in the moment? Have you tried, sincerely, looking at the moment with an open heart to discover where Spirit lives in it? I promise you, Spirit is not painful, nor does Spirit bring us anything that is painful. It is not Spirit’s motive!

Do we need to know everything that lies ahead of us in order for us to relax into it and trust? Do we need to know where we’ll be tomorrow before we start to live today? That’s just crazy? What is holding you back from living today…that wouldn’t hold you back tomorrow? And seriously, if you can’t put down your fear today what makes you think you’ll put it down tomorrow? Why are you holding onto it? Is it keeping you safe from something? Oh yeah, wait, it keeps you safe from being hurt. That’s really funny, because you know that you are already hurting. Your fear doesn’t keep you safe from hurt, it creates it for you.

This life is not about what the heck is out there tomorrow. It’s about what is inside now. When people call me for an appointment I often tell them that I am not a fortune teller, I do not tell the future…I tell the present. That confuses the crap out of a lot of people. It’s what is going on in the present that keeps us from knowing our Joy. Tomorrow isn’t going to bring you your Joy, today is. It’s not the path ahead that’s important, it’s the path WITHIN.

So, with that huge reminder in my today, I’m going to spend some time in that beautiful space of Spirit. Have a fabulous day, ya’ll!
Sending much Love!

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!

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

Can you feel it? It’s coming. Undoubtedly, it’s coming! It is not a question of ‘Is it coming?’…it’s a question of ‘Are you ready’?

Look around, every prophet, seer, astrologer, lightworker, intuitive, etc. is (and has been) notifying us…IT’S COMING. What is coming you ask? The Shift. Yes, the Shift. I laugh as I’m reminded of the phrase “shift happens”…oh how true it is in this case. Shift definitely happens.

Even science is on board this time. Not only will this shift be physical, but it will most definitely be spiritual as well.

So, we KNOW it’s coming. We also know that the best way to move through these changes is from the space of Center, the space of the Soul, the space of God. So…how many of us know how to get to that space? How many of us know how to experience the God/Goddess/Universe/Soul that lives within us?

Personally, it changed my entire world…my entire existence…my relationship with myself…and everything else I touched…and that touched me. To me, it makes absolute sense that the space of the Soul (which is what I name it) is and will be my haven when this shift really gets rockin’. Hell (not heck), it was my haven when my world was freakin’ falling apart on me years ago. It was the space that reminded me that I Am. I Am! All that Is, All that Isn’t and Everything in between. EVERYTHING!

As we raise our vibration out of fear into a state of Love, we connect with the 5th dimension (where I personally think the Maya are) easily, gracefully and fully. It’s where we remember our Truth. It’s where we remember that we are absolutely, positively, ONE with everything, everyone…ALL. Yup…ALL…the guy who bugs you at work, the woman who bugs you at school, the jackass down the street, the sweet woman who delivers your mail…the grass that grows, the trees that give us shade, the mountains where we hike. EVERYTHING.

And in that Oneness we are not limited…not one iota…not even a little…not even as humans. Limitation is a learned expression and belief. It’s what keeps us from even trying to communicate or connect with the space of the Soul, the God within. If we think we can’t, or we’re not worthy (which is what we’ve been taught) then we don’t even try. What’s the sense?

I’ll tell you what the sense is…what we’ve been taught is all a lie. Yup…ALL of it. So the sense of it is…that what you’re keeping yourself from IS Yourself. You in all your glory, all of your power, your beauty, your Love, your joy, your magnificence, your Being. And I’ll remind you again…your Being is not limited in any way, shape or form.

So, I’ll ask again…can you feel it? Can you sense the changes underfoot? They’re there. All you have to do is pull yourself out of your ego, out of your ‘fix it’ mode, and pay attention. Listen…to the Earth. Listen…to your Soul. Can you hear it?

If you can’t…the things that are keeping you away from it (your Soul) are the things that will help you expand the most. Your issues, your problems, your challenges are exactly what will get you to your Soul. Pushing past them will help you to see them as lies, as shadows, and lead the way directly into your Truth!

Don’t be afraid of your issues. Don’t push them aside. Ignoring them only makes them stronger. So you’re afraid…so what! Acknowledge it and move forward anyway. Never honor fear…EVER. It leaves you with nothing…absolutely nothing…empty-handed, sad, alone, depressed, wanting, crying, sick. OK, so maybe it does leave you with something, but hell if I want those things!

It’s time to go within! Yup…I’ll say it again…even if ya’ll are getting tired of hearing me say that…it’s time to go within! With everything to gain…and I do mean EVERYTHING…and nothing to lose (except fear) why would you not want to?

It’s coming…actually its here…we’re just smack in the middle of it. And if you can’t see it it’s because you are ignoring it…hoping that things will go back to ‘normal’. Guess what…they will never go back to ‘normal’…THANK GOD!

Are you ready? Are you willing to play with an open heart…full of Light and Love…and everything else? I am. Now, let’s go play. And honestly, if you don’t know how to go within…call me (www.thereisonlylove.com). I learned through my teacher, Archangel Michael…and now I teach others what he taught me.

Now it’s time for dinner. : )

Love is the answer…Love is always the answer. And if you haven’t felt the power of Love I invite you to settle into your Soul and experience the peace, joy and abundance it carries.  Love gives us the opportunity to see the situation from a different perspective and then make a choice from that space, instead of from the space of fear. That’s when the negative patterns end, and life begins.

Love is the answer. In the space of Love we are able to understand the subtle energies that underlie each and every situation. These subtle energies show us the why to everything. Everything happens for a reason. We may not know or understand the reason at the given moment, but we will, if we listen to our Soul.

Prayer is described as talking to God (or what ever you call that space), Meditation is described as listening to God. We can not hear if we are continually talking…whether it’s to God or someone else. We must be silent in order to hear.

Give yourself the opportunity to be silent. And I don’t mean that you need to sit in meditation for hours on end. In fact, you don’t have to sit at all. Meditation can be done anywhere, any time, for any length of time. Meditation, which to me is a taboo word, has old ideas attached to it for many people. Just the mere mention of meditation will shut people down and make them withdraw in a heart beat!  Why do we have such anxiety over something that is so calming? It’s the stigma that goes with the word. That’s it. Most people don’t even realize that they have been doing it for years…just not the way most of society portrays it.

Let’s shift the word from meditation to centering. Centering yourself in your Soul…because that is what we do when we are meditating. Centering is done each and every time you are ‘doing’ something you enjoy. It’s when you are doing something where your brain is not engaged. My mother does this when she is ironing. How fabulous is that!? Personally, I like to center when I am hiking in the mountains. It comes naturally in that space. My brain is not at all engaged and the beauty of nature aligns and balances my body naturally. What are some of the things you like to do that put that natural smile on your face? Gardening? Cooking (another favorite of mine)? Photography? Music? Art? How about something like bowling, fishing, jogging, riding, swimming? I could go on, but I think you get the point. You do not have to sit in the traditional sense of the word to meditate. However, that is also one of my favorite ways as well. I’ve been doing it for so long that my body and brain are now well trained. The moment I sit and take a breath the brain knows its time to take a nap.

I got a long way from Love didn’t I? Well, it is in that space of centering, that we get to EXPERIENCE the Love that already lives inside of us. The Love that we ARE. That Love that you feel is not just a good feeling, it IS WHO YOU ARE. Do you hear me? It IS WHO YOU ARE. When you can make that connection you are on your way to shifting out of the old limiting, false beliefs of who you think you are, and into a space of expansion and Truth and knowing who you Are.

When you understand that you ARE indeed that Love, you understand yourself on a much deeper level. Understanding yourself on that level you begin to understand ALL, everything, on that level…not just you, but others, and situations. From that space, you see the underlying subtle energies that let you know why those situations are happening. And from that space you are able to choose Love in response to the situations, instead of the old, limiting choices that perpetuate the fear, frustration, anxiety and stress.

You will never find the answer in your head…ever. You will only continue to choose from the same beliefs that got you into that space in the first place. : ) The answers live in your Soul. And in your Soul there is Love.

Love is the answer…Love is always the answer.
