It’s Father’s Day in the U.S. as I write this, a day when we celebrate our relationship with our fathers. Some of us don’t have a lot to celebrate, our fathers may have been absent, unknown, or so emotionally distant that we cannot find a reason to celebrate our relationship with them.
Many Lightworkers feel lost in the world, unable to fit in and find a place where they are comfortable. Even though material success may not be important to them, they look for it because that is the world's measure of accomplishment. They may spend their efforts creating material power, even though it is difficult for Lightworkers because their lessons involve connecting to their internal power. And they may look for love in relationships with others, although their task is to connect to the source of unconditional love within.
Every experience marks another step on your spiritual path. Whether it is easy or challenging it is a call to you to do your inside work, to look at how your thoughts created this reality. You are all moving into the ability to instantly manifest what you think and speak about and the Universe instantly responds to your energy. If you are feeling powerless you will create a reality that reflects your belief that you are not powerful. If your experiences are positive and joyful, they also reflect what you have created and are not an accident. Your inside work has to do with how you create both joy and pain in your reality and how you will move forward on your path.
Each of you has come into this lifetime carrying the memories of your previous lifetimes. While you may not remember these in great detail, you hold their vibration within your bodies and they are expressed in your beliefs and in how you create your reality. Each lesson that you create is an opportunity for your soul to heal these experiences and integrate them into your life journey.
When you use kindness in your interactions with others you give them the gift of acceptance, love and compassion. Kindness is more than being nice to others, it is a state of spiritual mindfulness, where you allow your spiritual nature to shine and light the lives of those around you. When you are kind to others your light shines more brightly than any darkness around you. Being kind to others, no matter what they are doing or have done to you, allows you to stay in your power and to choose how you will interact with everyone around you.
There are many different healing modalities that can take you through the process of healing, but while they will assist in the healing process, they cannot heal you. There are people in your life, part of your soul group, who will bring you the lessons that you need to strengthen your awareness, but they will not heal you. You may arrive at the point where you can no longer accept your life as it is and decide to do things differently and while that is a point of healing, it will not heal you. Your ability to heal yourself occurs at the moment at which you decide to heal.
How did you spend your time today? Were you enjoying the beauty of the world around you, practicing gratitude for everything and aware of your power? Were you tired, angry, frustrated or disappointed in your life, yourself and those around you?
You came into this life in a state of grace, perfect in every way. And although you do not always see yourselves as perfect, you live each day of your life in grace. The fears and doubts that you have about yourselves, your path, your purpose and even your reason for being here cause you to step outside of grace. Each time you see yourselves as imperfect you fall from grace, not in the eyes of the Creator or Source, but in your own eyes. The state of grace is always yours and it is available to you because you have the unconditional love of the Creator available to you at all times. When you doubt your perfection, you shut off the flow of Love and of grace.
Each experience brings you greater knowledge about yourself and the world. This allows you to move forward quickly through many situations and creates a base of experience with which you view the world. You do not, for example, have to re-learn how to start a car each time you get behind the wheel. This process works well for you in the material world but it hinders you in the spiritual. The material world teaches you that everything is the same; the spiritual world challenges you to see everything as unique. The Shift requires that you have a beginner's mind, where you anticipate nothing and are prepared to learn everything.
