The only way to save yourself is to change how you feel about yourself and how you think yourself to be.

A new job won’t do it.
A new relationship with another person won’t do it.
A new city won’t do it.
A new car, wardrobe, hair cut…nope, won’t do it.

Relationship with self…who we think we are or are not…changing that is what will do it. Changing that is what saves us. And, no one else can do it for you…only you. What are you waiting for?

A starting place…is awareness. Be aware of when you tell yourself you suck, you’re not enough, you can’t do blah blah, I’m not lovable…those voices in your head. They are not so little, seeing as they affect your entire world. Start there. Be aware. And when you catch yourself in those ideas ask yourself “Where or how did I learn that?” “Who taught me that?”

We were not born with those thoughts, we learned them…or created them based on how another responded to our Selfness. They are not yours…they are someone else’s. Give them back to whomever. Release them and draw yourself inwards…into your heart.

Deep into your heart through meditation, contemplation, silence…which you can do through dance, art, gardening, walking, sitting…go there. It is where you will find the Truth of who you are. The space where you recognize just how Divine you are. How much you are Love, as well as Loved.

Once recognized and remembered you begin to change your ideas of self…you save yourself. You begin to live that Truth. Make it your own. Own it. Live it. Be it. Share it.

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.

It’s been a pretty intense few weeks (if not 2 years!) for many of us. Seems like we’re all being asked to take a very good look at our ‘relationships’…who we are in them, what we expect from them and why. Many of us, when looking at relationships, consider the ones we are in with another person. However, the most important relationship we will ever have in our entire existence is the one we have with ourselves. It is THAT relationship that gets projected out onto the rest of our relationships…whether that is with another person (platonic or romantic), a situation, or something else (nature, animals, and the world in general).

So, as we begin to take a look at what our current relationships look like to us, we can remember that what ever it is we are seeing (or experiencing) is a mirror of what is going on within.

Not liking the relationship you are in right now? Ask yourself why. Stay away from blaming the other person, or making their actions the reason for your discomfort. Look at you…and just you. Why are you uncomfortable? What is their behavior triggering inside of you? Is it making you feel unappreciated…unloved…unworthy…etc.? Nobody has the ability to make you feel anything. If it is being triggered inside of you, it is because you already have that belief about yourself to begin with. The other person’s behavior is simply reminding you of that belief. They didn’t put it there, you did. Hence…this is the relationship you have with yourself. Yes, when you are liking your relationship, you are still looking at a reflection of Self, you are seeing the Love that you are projecting out.

When you change the relationship you have with Self, when you see yourself for the perfection and wholeness, limitless and boundless Self that you are, then THAT is what gets projected out onto the rest of your ‘relationships’.

Every relationship we have…whether it be with a human, animal, nature, situation, etc…gives us the opportunity to see and know ourselves. Again, working on the knowledge that every relationship is a projection of the one with have with ourselves, so naturally we are looking at ourselves.

The term ‘relationship’ itself implies the existence of parts. But, there is only One. We are One…so, everything that we are in relationship with. IS essentially Self.

How you view that ‘relationship’ is key. Are you viewing through the ego ‘eye’…or through Consciousness?

Have you ever stopped to notice that choices directly affect experience? So, naturally, that means that experience is a direct reflection of choice. Are you listening? Do you get it? Your experience…at work, at play, in relationships, in family, in LIFE is a direct reflection of the choices you make.

I hear the skeptics. I hear people respond by saying “I did NOT choose this experience, it sucks! I wanted happiness, abundance, love, etc. What I’m experience is definitely not what I wanted!”

Oh how funny we are. We never stop to look at the real choice we are making. We think we are making a choice when are mind says “Yes, I want that.” But what’s really happening is that our thoughts are simply that, our thoughts…the belief that lives underneath the thought, in the pit of our stomachs and in our hearts, is the actual choice we are making.

So, even if we say “Yes, I want that” and all the while we are believing “I’m not really good enough” or “I can’t do that” or even “There’s no way that’s going to happen” we will experience the belief, not the thought. I don’t care how many times you repeat that thought over and over…but yet you are repeating (and actually choosing) the belief over and over…guess what…your experience will directly reflect the choice of the belief.

Take a look at the experiences in your life… what you consider the good ones as well as what you consider to be the bad ones. Now look at the belief that was actually underlying those experiences. You go to work, a job that you hate, and wonder why the day literally sucks. You’ve already made the choice…that work sucks. Hence, you will experience exactly that. You go to a party, one you’re looking forward to, and you have a great time. You’ve already made the choice…that the party will be fun. Hence, you experience exactly that. You enter into a relationship, you think they will provide the stability you need and you wonder why that person only seems to get more unstable by the day and nothing in your life is stable. You’ve already made the choice that you yourself need someone else to provide it for you because you just can’t do it by yourself. Hence, you experience exactly that…instability. You apply for a job, you wonder if you are really capable of doing the job, you get the job but at a very low salary. You’ve already made the choice that you really aren’t enough to do the job and aren’t worth that much money. Hence you experience exactly that. So yes, the mediocre experience that you are having…YOU are actually choosing it. And in the same breath, the amazing experience you are having…YOU are actually choosing it.

Do you get my drift? If not, I can continue with examples. Really…take a very close look at what you are choosing…REALLY…and then notice how it directly reflects your experience. Don’t just stop at the thought, move deeper into what is really underlying the thought. Every single experience is connected to every single choice. Even when we don’t realize we are choosing…we are absolutely choosing. By being aware of the choices we make we have the opportunity to change them. Ah yes…but do you have the courage to change them? Where does the fear lie? Is it in the space where you are scared to death if you show your true self to your partner that they will leave you? What happens if they leave? What do you ‘lose’? It’s in acknowledging that fear that lets you see just how you are still CHOOSING to fill that need outside of yourself. And as long as you believe you don’t have it within you…you will experience exactly that.

Every experience. Every choice. Directly connected. What are you choosing…and why?

Do you REALLY want to have a different experience in life? Maybe it’s just in one or two aspects of your life. Where ever it is that you would like a different experience, understand and know that you, and ONLY you, are the one that can change it. You, and ONLY you, can determine your experience. Nobody else has a hand in your experience. NOBODY. You can not blame or thank anyone else for your experience. They may give you an opportunity…but only YOU can choose to do with it what YOU want. 

Experience and choice…directly connected…do you get it? Can you see it? This is your world. This is YOUR experience. You have the knowledge, power and ability to create your own experience. Oh, there it is again…create your own. You are the Creator as well as the Createe…and it’s in your choices (beliefs) that the creation is made. Even though we experience that creation in the outer world, it is first created in the inner space of the Soul.

I’m going to say it one more time…just because I get such a rush from knowing how this works and applying it in my world that I want everyone to have as much fun as I am…EXPERIENCE AND CHOICE ARE DIRECTLY CONNECTED. OUR EXPERIENCE IS IMMEDIATELY AND CONSTANTLY AFFECTED BY OUR CHOICES.

What will you choose now? Have fun!
