I am all-encompassing. I am everywhere all at once. I never miss a
beat. I hold the entire Universe in one embrace. I hold you in My
embrace right now. My embrace is firm yet not tight. Within My embrace,
you can do your own breathing. You can live your own life, so to speak.
In your imagination, you can wander, yet you are nevertheless caught in
It's the time of year when I celebrate my birthday (Happy Birthday, fellow Scorpios!) by practicing a ritual that I've used for more than fifteen years. I've shared it with you before, and since it reflects a powerful way to create your life with intention, I thought I'd share it again this year. Here's what I do:
Beloved one, I would speak with you now about the state of the
world. You have your leaders who give once a year the State of the
Union Address in your geo-political grouping here. You have ones of
your certain groupings who give the State of the State Address or State
of the Province Address. You have ones who are giving you an update
Life is all things that are, the so-called good and the so-called bad, the human condition and the wonders that go far beyond this mere mortal existence. Even fear and doubt are not bad, but are merely limits you place upon yourself.
Take time to pause and reflect as you go through your experiences. When you pause and reflect you do two things-you stop your mind from engaging your emotions and reacting from the memory of karmic experience. And, you allow your inner guidance to have a voice in the choices that you are about to make. When you do not take time to pause and reflect, you act from the past and not from the present moment. Are you afraid that you will miss the opportunity to do or say something if you wait before you take a step or make a decision?
The “Yes” in your heart is the “Yes" to My Love and to the experience of the living Now Moment in which you are ever and always coming forth from Me and discovering this Love that we share – recognizing that it is everything.
Your awareness of Me will become automatic. Pretty much the same way as you raise your arm or look somewhere. There is no strain. It is perfectly natural. Awareness of Me will be like being in a room of golden light. You don't always think about the walls of the room you are in, yet you are aware. You may prefer Me as white light. That is fine too.
Although it is the part of you that can often be the most easily ignored, your Spirit is your source of strength, inspiration and joy. When all else in the material world fails you, when all else has abandoned you, your spirit is always available to you. It is in those times when you lose faith in the material that you can turn to the spirit for guidance. But this means that you only turn toward Spirit when you are at the lowest points in your life. Your relationship with Spirit is most effective when you create a peaceful spirit, one that is in balance with the material. And when you create a peaceful spirit you are able to walk with the guidance of Spirit every day of your life.

We face the challenges of seeing beyond these blocks or walking through them as if they were transparent. Most often we stop to emotionally engage with the circumstance, the individual or just the feeling itself.
