All of nature works in a glorious dance, and so too, humanity is intended to do the same. You have witnessed the winds blowing and the waters rising in your recent storm, but if you are paying attention you will also feel the winds of change blowing in your heart, and the tides of emotions rising. What humanity does not acknowledge and express, Mother Nature releases for you.
As you move through a time on your planet earth when everything is in motion, it is very important to be gentle with yourselves and with others. Everything is arising from the depths within you. Your hopes, your dreams, you frustrations, areas of your life that require movement... truly dear ones there is no more hiding from yourselves any longer.
Energy organizes as light within your field in direct correlation to your thoughts and feelings. This is eminently important at this time as the outer world is beginning to go through very dramatic transitions and it will be important for you to "see" this as dissolution of old and keep your focus within the realm of ideals that you wish to be reflected back to you as outer realized manifestation.
There will always be things in your life that don't go as planned. There will always be unforeseen circumstances, people who don't act as you expect and things that don't work as you expected them to do. In life it is important not to remain stubbornly fixed upon the way life is “supposed” to look but rather to be willing to deal with the way life is.
It is the nature of life itself to move forward, one moment at a time, constantly and eternally evolving. It is the nature of the apple tree to grow and blossom simply to release the apples into your willing hands. It is the nature of plants to seed, grow, mature, die, and then decay, knowing that their life force will sustain those to follow. It is the nature of waves to crash upon the sand and then to fall back again, releasing their treasures to the playful children on the beach.
You may be feeling zapped, run ragged, overwhelmed, yet what you are experiencing may be the stirrings of enlightenment. Of course, to become enlightened, to be aware of it, naturally the dark that blocks it has to go. You have all the light in Heaven in you right now, only the dark has to go. And what is the dark that hovers over you, beloveds? It is the past. It is residuals of the past, conclusions from the past, pictures of the past that you hold onto.
It was time to say goodbye to our beautiful, gentle Labrador. The decision to euthanase her, thus ending her life, was one we had wrangled with over two months. During this time we had decided yes, as we watched her struggling up and down the stairs in our home, limping toward us, her large shoulder joints riddled with arthritis. The once strong shoulders she had used to pull herself up as the strength had ebbed from her hips and thighs. But, after limping toward you, she would slowly sit sideways and give you the most gorgeous wide grin, full of love.
We’re now fully into the year 2012 and boy are we feeling it. Everything is speeding up. We really have to “shift or get off the pot!” Anything that doesn’t serve us as we go forward in the Transformation (Ascension) has got to be released.
Saying goodbye. It’s something we all do at various times in our lives. Some of us do it consciously and intentionally and some of us avoid it like the plague. This week, I’m saying goodbye to a dear friend who’s moving to Europe. While the trip marks an exciting new adventure in his life (and I’m very happy for him), I feel sad to see him go. It’s another chance to practice saying goodbye with open eyes and an open heart. Here’s what I’ve learned about loss and endings:
Sometimes letting go of fear can feel as though you are walking off a cliff. It is often necessary to take this large step in order to make the greatest progress in your life. When your intention is to serve the Highest Good in all you do, and when you have the willingness to move through your fear of the unknown, this step off a cliff will be into the arms of these magnificent beings of light. Angels will assist you to fly to the heights of grandeur and to the depths of peace.
As you walk into the wholeness and the holiness of the expression of who you know yourself to be, you will find that the lines that divide and sever your being begin to fade with time, with wisdom, with love. You will find that the expression of self that you know as the beginning and the ending of this life no longer are divided components. They become streamlined in the natural sense of the word flowing forward naturally issuing notice of cleansing, of clearing. Issuing awareness of different octaves of knowledge, of wisdom, of strength.
One of my good friends always says 'Let go and let God' when he is involved in a situation that is beyond his ability to deal with. It's his way of acknowledging that there is a point at which we have to let others learn their lessons in their own way and time and within their own power. How many times do we hold someone up energetically, see them in their best light, hold the highest intention for them and for their lives only to have them go right back to their old ways because they can't learn and grow within our timelines and don't heal when we force them or try to do the work for them.
In the past few days, many of you have let go of people, objects and communities that have been a central part of your life. And so you are once again exhausted. Perhaps you lost a favorite pair of earrings; or your perceptions of your family or community shifted. Whatever it was, that piece tugged at your heart and brought tears to your eyes. You let go of a part of your being, your heart.
