I remember the many times the Universe has tried to prevent me from doing something that I wanted to do anyway. No matter how many obstacles were put in my path, I forged ahead, determined to succeed at all costs. And I paid the price in time, energy and heartache. Why did I not see the clues for what they were, warnings that the path I was on was not the best one for me?
All that comes to you in life is a gift, every person on your path is a giver and love is the in the receiving, the gift and the giver. Receiving helps you close cycles, balance energies, release contracts, love and value yourself, and prepare for new cycles of being. You cannot be an effective giver if you are not also willing to receive for gifts are without value if they cannot be received. There is fear of obligation, unworthiness, owing others and rekindling karma with receiving but in truth, these things are what could happen if you do not receive.
When I was going through a period that I would describe as one of the darkest nights of my soul, I was overwhelmed by the cascade of events, each one more challenging than the one before, that seemed to appear out of nowhere, on an almost daily basis. I knew that this was a mistake, that this was not my life and certainly not something I had volunteered for on any level.
Jennifer's note: I asked for this channel today because several of my friends are facing very sad life issues. I cannot do anything for them, other than to send them prayers, love and light. I feel helpless and sad, even though I know that all is in divine order. My question to Uriel was why did this happen and why do I feel so helpless. This is his reply.
On Sunday we celebrate the date 10-10-10, a symbol of new beginnings that we are so ready for. We want to find a new life purpose, new relationships, new ways of being and more joy. So we welcome this opportunity with open arms and an open heart. New beginnings are available as long as we are willing to create space for them, which we do by allowing their corresponding endings to occur. Every new beginning we ask for is the door that opens when another closes. We cannot begin without also ending.
Lately every month seems to have its special challenges and September certainly was an eye opener. From the moment it began with Mercury retrograde, then the Equinox, its powerful full moon and the heavy energy on the 30th, it has been a month to remember (or perhaps forget). If we needed to hear the ringing of the clue phone, we heard it in September. And we answered it too, or it was answered for us. Now we're into a new month with new opportunities and yes, a few challenges.
How often have we done something that we have later felt guilty about? A client called because the man she was dating had said something that she felt indicated he didn't trust her. When I reminded her that she had done something that she was out of integrity with, she realized that her reaction was based on her guilt and fear that he would find out about what she had done.
A friend of mine recently told me that he had been 'unfriended' on Facebook by someone he once cared for. While this gesture saddened him, he knew that it was the final goodbye in a relationship that had run its course. I told him that he had to honor this person's choice and accept that they had gone as far as they could together. He would find new friends. And it made me think about my own recent 'unfriended' experiences.
Emotions like guilt and shame do not exist in a vacuum. They are part of a long process of actions involving people and situations that have created these emotions. All we remember is the end of this process, how terrible we feel and these have been repeated often enough to prevent us from moving forward as soon as we sense a hint of them.
I know I just sent out an Ascension Insight message yesterday but was guided to send this one today because what I experienced in the last 48 hours is part of the energy shift that we are experiencing this week with the Equinox today and the Full Moon on September 23. It is an energy boomerang that will show us what happens when we think consider going back to the past. So, here we go, it's an interesting, dramatic story.
