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 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!
Trish

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!

How’s everyone doing with the eclipses? Better yet, how are you doing…period? Are you feeling like you’re being squeezed…or are you riding the wave joyously to the next cycle? It’s been a trip, that’s for sure. So many belief systems are being blown out of the water! YAHOO!

It might not always be an easy journey, but that’s because we are resisting. For soooo long we have been conditioned to a very specific set of beliefs and ideas about ourselves and the world in general. We’ve been choosing these old beliefs for sooo long that we don’t even realize we’re doing it.

I’m having soooo much fun discovering where those old beliefs are…and what they are…and then blowing them up. Sometimes it’s even frustrating for me though…but then I remember that as long as I stop resisting then everything…and I do mean everything…runs smoothly and fabulously!

Currently I’ve set out to shift the conditioned belief of lack. Oh, I know that this multiverse if absolutely unlimited. It replenishes itself constantly. I’ve been noticing that when I move into that space, or belief, of replenishment that the dog food bin never runs out. I have to laugh. It reminds me that for soooo long (do you like my ‘soooo’) I’ve always believed that it was supposed to deplete as I used it, and then we just go buy more. Says who? That’s something I was taught to believe by someone who also had that belief. Well, I don’t want to belief in lack anymore.

And since that belief is standing in front of me I’m noticing that it’s not just about a depleting dog food bin…it’s about how often I choose from that old belief…when I’m using shampoo, mustard, cat food, toilet paper, gasoline, money, etc. It’s about the very mundane things that we use in our every day life that we continue to impart the belief of depletion upon them! See, we don’t even realize we’re doing it!

Oh this is just fascinating. What would happen in the world if we all choose to believe in and experience the replenishing aspect of who we really Are? Then money would seriously hold absolutely NO power what so ever. That really makes me giggle inside. How freely we could enjoy our experience here on this planet, simply enjoy it! What a novel concept! LOL

Who taught us that we are here (on this planet) to ‘learn’ something? Seriously! Some human had the thought that we must be here learning something and other humans decided to believe that! Oh we are so gullible when we seek answers outside of ourselves. We are not here to ‘learn’ anything. We already ‘know’ everything. We’re here simply to experience all that we already Are in this physical realm. Period, end of story.

We trap ourselves in such chaos and frustration by choosing to partake in a different belief…when we choose to listen to someone else’s idea of what the heck this world is all about and how we’re supposed to live in it. Garbage I tell ya…just garbage.

Move into the “I Can” believe…leave the ‘how’ to your Soul…it’s more equipped to handle it than your mind is. Simply stay in the “I Can” space and watch the doors fly open. They might not look like what you expect, but then again, what you expect was given to you by someone else…not your Soul. Go with the unexpected…believe in yourself. You have no idea what you are capable of until you take that journey inward and see for yourself. What you find there is simply amazing, simply beautiful, simply everything.

Take the ride and let me know what you find…for we each find something different. How exciting is that!?

In Love,
Trish

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.
