My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Your lives will unfold in the most miraculous ways this year if you can trust that everything around you is conspiring to lead you to greater love.
The things and people that inspire you are like beacons guiding you to greater love. Allow yourself to follow your heart even in things that seem insignificant. If you want a cup of coffee, stop and get one. You never know who you might meet.
The unloving souls and challenging circumstances are like canyon walls that guide the water to choose an easier path. Allow yourself to lovingly move away from what hurts or upsets you towards what feels more loving. Stop trying to save, fix, and change those who haven't asked for it, and instead allow yourselves joy no matter what those around you choose. You will become the beacons of love and joy to guide those who are ready.
Your unexpected circumstances and changes in plans occur when the Divine sees something better for you than you might have asked. Avoid tantrums when things don't go your way and trust the adventure. Be open to spontaneous change. Attempting to control anything or anyone too tightly only leads to frustration and stress. Planning while allowing for change keeps you on a grace-guided path.
If you believe in love, you'll see the love, and receive the love. Trust the unfolding adventure of your lives dear ones. You are always exactly where you need to be to learn what you want to learn.
In the Real world, when you someday awaken from this earthly dream, you will remember that everything is, and always will be, all about love. Indeed there is nothing else beneath it all. Why not allow yourselves this love right here, right now? It is always present, beckoning you back into its embrace, whispering gently, "This is who you are."
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

You never know how Love will touch your life...
This week I was waiting in line at a grocery store customer service desk when an older, Indian gentleman turned around and offered me his place, "If you're in a hurry, you can go ahead of me." What a sweetheart! I thanked him but told him that for once I wasn't rushing.
A client had canceled before my lunch break, and while I "should" have been at home answering emails, the idea of running errands appealed. "I like to ask," he continued in his delightful accent. "The mothers are always so busy!" I joked, "Well, I don't have kids, but I'm a mom to a lot of adults. I feed everyone!"
His face lit up! "Oh, my wife! She feeds everyone! She is not my wife! She is my LIFE! We've been married 40 years." Love emanated from him, as he spoke of her with reverence. He proceeded to tell me they had large gatherings of people at their house each month just to talk. His wife fed everyone and they had only five rules: No politics, no religion, no selling, no drinking, and no smoking. They invited total strangers just to meet and eat. "You should come!" he told me. For the thousandth time this life, I wished I could clone to enjoy all the delightful souls I meet.
I ran into him again as I was leaving. "I was just telling the clerk how sweet you are," I told him. He smiled and joked, "Oh no! I'm short, old, and ugly!" I looked him in the eye and teased, "That's not who you are! That's just the costume." He smiled even more broadly. "This," he said softly, gesturing at all the people still in line with a sweep of his hand, "This is all just Halloween!" We shared a silent moment of shared mystical truth and grinned like two kids with a beautiful secret. I saw the Divine in him as clearly as he saw it in me. He surprised me with a big hug. "I love you darling!" he told me with soul-level sincerity and the innocence of a child. "I love you too," I replied, practically dancing out of the store!
This is the "real" world – a world of tolerance, love, and authentic expression. Occasionally, in this earthly dream, we get to experience the "real world" when love and kindness, humor and grace are shared freely, with innocence and without reservation. This soul blessed my day, my year, and now all of you with his innocent, loving heart.
Can you imagine how we could change the world if we were all a bit more open to the adventure? I can. Let us dream it together.
Here are some tips this week to help you trust the journey...
1. Trust everything is perfect even if it doesn't look that way
We are always exactly where we need to be to learn what we need to learn. The more you trust that the better life gets.
If your bank account is low, trust that you're learning about real abundance. When my clients cancel I trust the Divine Orchestration of my life. If a relationship doesn't work out, trust that you are going to receive more love. When a cold tried to set in near the end of my vacation I realized my body was telling me it was time to eat kindly once again.
The more you affirm and believe that everything is perfect, the more you'll see and experience the perfection.
2. Surrender to yourself... not your "shoulds"
If you find things don't look the way you think they should stop. Breathe. Ask yourself, "Given life as it is, people as they are, me as I am, what next?" I "should" have answered emails when my client canceled. I felt like running errands. Shoulds rob you of God's grace.
3. Open to the adventure
Control is highly overrated. So is knowing how everything is going to turn out. As children we opened to life, live in the moment, and embrace our days as a grand adventure.
Years ago it wasn't on my agenda to take a certain route home, but it felt right. As soon as I turned off the freeway there was a woman with a stalled car. I went to get her some gas and she insisted I take some money for my time. I had just prayed for a little financial help. She had prayed for someone to assist her!
The next time something doesn't look as you wish, surrender to the adventure. Magic and miracles await!
May 2018 bring you joyous adventures and more than you'd ask for!
Love you all!
