My dear friends, we love you so very much,
No matter what is going on in the world or in your personal life, help is always available. You are never alone. You are never without guidance and support. In each and every moment, everything you need to handle a situation in front of you, is available or given to you.
Fear is a tricky energy. Fear tries to make you imagine the worst. Fear works to convince you that you will be left alone to fend for yourself in the midst of challenges. Fear tries to make you believe that loss could be catastrophic, that your life could be ruined do to external powers, or that you could fail.
In reality you can experience loss but it is never permanent. You can "lose" a person but you will see them again in heaven. If you are willing to develop new skills, you can even feel their spirit while you are very much alive. You can lose a house but that house lives within you, waiting to be recreated with spirit and intent. You can lose a friend, but the Divine will take the form of new friends that match your heart and vibration in this instant. You can even lose external freedoms but your freedom to be and to think independently can never be taken away.
Fear makes you believe you are at the mercy of other individuals and external powers. In truth you are only at the mercy of your own energy, for you will always receive the mirror of that energy in your physical life. If you are aligned with the Source, with love, the external world has little power over your.
Fear makes you believe you could fail. In truth, you cannot. You are unending eternal light in human form. The sun does not fail when covered by clouds. Christ on the cross did not fail to love, because the world still hates. Even if you were to make the most hideous and divisive choices here upon the earth, if you learn, you have not failed... and if you have not learned yet, you will.
Dear ones, there is nothing to fear. Love is with you. We are with you. You are spirit – light in human form, having an experience here upon the earth, trying to remember the essential truth of your being.
In all challenges, when you don't know how to handle something God does. When you don't know what to do next, God does. When you don't know where to turn to seek help, God does. You are never ever disconnected from the source of all Love and assistance. You are never disconnected from your angels. You may not feel us, but we are always with you.
Next time you find yourself fearful, take a breath and simply ask..."What now? What next?" Trust the journey. Divine Love is leading you into a kinder existence at all times, and help is always present.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

In the words of the old Britney Spears song, "Oops I did it again." As a spiritual teacher, you think I'd learn. As a channel for energy that sometimes creates miracles, it is embarrassing. Nonetheless, once again I stood in a huge flow of energy, experienced an intense emotional release from many lifetimes, got impatient with the tears, and stopped the flow. Within hours I had another case of twisted intestines and was in excruciating pain.
I had to resist the urge to beat myself up and criticize myself. I had to resist the urge to despair that another week of my life would be spent healing from one poor choice. I had to stop, breathe, and trust the journey once again because when you're in that dire a physical condition and you don't want to run to the emergency room to be operated on, the mandate becomes "trust or bust" – literally.
As the spasms of pain gripped me, fear started to grip me too. Even though I've been through this before I wasn't sure I had the strength to go through it again. Luckily I know that when we don't know how, God does. I quieted my mind, got intensely present, and prayed. "Dear God, I don't know how to do this. You do. I trust you. Show me how to surrender to this and heal completely. I breathed again and relaxed as deeply as I could into the Presence of love."
The idea to put a prayer request on Facebook popped in my head. I did and hundreds of dear souls started sending me energy. Another idea to contact a dear friend who calms me and makes me laugh popped in my head. I asked to interrupt his busy schedule for a phone conversation and felt intensely comforted. I got over the old reservations about not wanting to "bother" people, and not wanting to "ask for help" and immediately began to feel a mental strength that I knew would getme through the adventure.
Of course I healed. I just kept relaxing and surrendering to my guidance in the moment. Within two days I was able to gaze for myself and started healing much more quickly. Within a week I was eating again. Strangely, without food or sleep for about five days I was more energized and alive than I'd been in ages.
I experiened quite tangibly a beautiful truth – When fear loses its grip and we get intensely present, we are most strongly plugged into the source of all energy, all love, and all solutions.
While this certainly wasn't a fun way to grow, the lessons learned have already changed the way I'm living. I'm trusting even more deeply than before, surrendering to the present even more deeply, and as a result, intensely energized and happy with my life.
There are situations in life which force us to face our fears head on so we can at long last surrender into deeper levels of embracing truth, trusting the Divine, and ultimately knowing how deeply we are loved and guided.
Here are a few tips to face fears this week...
1. Get present
When something starts to alarm you – be it a bill, the state of the world, or a physical condition – stop your mind from running out into the future. Fear is all about what might happen, not what is happening right now. Look around and notice your surroundings. Count your blessings. Acknowledge what is good right here and now. Fear can't possess you in the present.
2. Remind yourself - "When I don't know how, God does"
Fear has more power when we feel alone to solve our challenges but in truth the entire universe is there to assist. When we don't know to solve something, the Source does. Take a breath, drop into your heart, and ask, "What next? What now?" and listen to those little urgings.
3. Know you are ready for a breakthrough into greater power
When fear comes up it simply means that you are ready to break through an old limitation, illusion, or pattern. Ask yourself, "What am I afraid of?" then change it to "What am I creating?" Be powerful. Intend what you desire, not what you fear. Strengthen your mind by constantly refocusing on what you want.
When I was sick last week I spent a lot of time in meditation remembering what it felt like to feel good until my brain and body started to respond.
There's a lot of fear going around due to the state of the world. We need not allow it to possess us. Instead we can face our fears and walk right through them into a more powerful, healthy, and happy reality! I am happy to be alive and well once again!
Love you all!
