Each of our life experiences is a lesson in love. Even if you do not think that many of these experiences are very 'lovely,' loving or lovable, they are all part of the contract that you entered into to bring your soul into greater communion with the Source. Before you can move forward on your journey, you must learn to love each incident, experience, situation and person that participated in your journey. Each person or situation that appears to block your path is not there for you to hate; they are all there to teach you a lesson in love.
You have expectations of yourselves that concern how you are able to create your life, the money you earn, the material goods you possess, your success and happiness. How do you create the expectations and what happens when they are not met? It is disappointing when your expectations are not met. Then what you do achieve seems unimportant even though you may have achieved great things when viewed from the perspective of your soul's growth and the lifetimes that you have spent in trying to achieve your goals. Are you perfect and do you strive for perfection in all that you do? In order to be successful in all that you do, you must look at what you expect of yourself and how you measure perfection.
There are many ways to heal your karma with others. From a spiritual perspective, you can learn the karma's lesson, apply forgiveness and your part in the lesson is over. From an emotional perspective, you can try to arrive at a resolution that the mind and ego are comfortable with, which can mean that you want recognition, an apology and acknowledgement of your value and participation. When you approach karma from the spiritual perspective, your understanding of the lesson is complete when you are able to forgive and move on. But when you look for validation from the emotional perspective, you are able to partially heal the karma but it will continue. Karma is complete when you do your part and stop.
If your life seems to be weighed down with obligations and responsibilities and you feel that you do not have the freedom to do what you want, remember that your reality is always under your control and you must learn to define what freedom means to you and then surrender to it. Your definition of freedom may have been defined for you by others and may reflect on what you feel you are able to do in your life. But freedom starts from within and having freedom in your life is a way of being. What does it mean for you to be free? Understand that and you can surrender to freedom.
The Universe supports each choice that you make, no matter what it is. There are no good or bad choices for you, there are simply choices that have different outcomes. You know that your free will is the point from which your guides and angels must act and they cannot do anything that goes against what you have chosen, no matter what the outcome may be. There is no power in your life or in the Universe greater than your own free will. Whatever you choose will determine how the next step on your journey unfolds. No matter what you choose, the Universe will support you.
When something goes wrong someone has to take the blame. This occurs on individual, cultural and national levels. No one wants to be at fault but someone has to be blamed to give the anger and emotional energy a focal point. On a national level, you may blame your leaders; on an individual level, those to blame can be your parents, employer, partner or friends. It is always someone else's fault when things go wrong. This has created a global abdication of responsibility for the creation of the world you live in and is a central reason for the world's situation. You live in a state of blame instead of a state of peace, joy and potential.
With the birth of a cycle of experience, and you are part of the human cycle, there is a flow and purpose to the balance of dark and light that is created. Every new cycle begins with darkness, just as night is the beginning of the day and gives way to the light that awakens the world to the dawn.
There is only one lesson that all of humanity needs to learn to bring heaven on earth, and it is the lesson of forgiveness. There is a single message of the Shift and it is to love and forgive each other. As the energy quickens and you feel the Shift energy reverberating throughout your lives, you will notice that how you react to others changes. As you raise your vibrations it becomes more difficult to be annoyed and frustrated with those around you. The gift of your higher vibration is the ability to see into others' hearts and to understand the pain and frustration that they live with. How can you not forgive someone when you realize that they are doing the best that they can, in every situation?
How many times do you try to change circumstances in your life only to find yourself in exactly the same situation or in something that works out exactly the same way. Do you feel like you have wasted your time and energy? This is discouraging for you and can cause you to lose faith as you often think that it is the Universe working against you. It is not. What happens is when you leave one situation without first healing it or understanding all of its dynamics and then go into another one, you simply trade one thing for another.
Everything is the same in the Universe, there is only one life and many different ways of experiencing it. It is your experience of life that determines your everyday reality. And that can be changed, simply through your ability to see past what is going on and to understand its dynamics. But sometimes you need to experience the situation several times before you grasp its lessons or its significance.
Each of you is wise beyond your knowing and you have all of the knowledge of the Universe at your disposal. This knowledge does not exist in books and cannot be learned in schools. It is the wisdom that comes through connecting with your spiritual self, a deep understanding of the connections between the spiritual and material worlds and the wisdom that you have brought with you at this time to walk the path that you have chosen and to do the work that you have come here to do. You do not need masters to teach you this, you simply need to awaken to that which you already know.
