If you will call your troubles experiences, and remember that every experience develops some latent force within you, you will grow vigorous and happy, however adverse your circumstances may seem to be. ~ John Heywood
As we exit November and enter the last month of 2011 the Gods bend ever closer to us in order that we hear their message. It is a reminder of just what our Soul Substance and Core Beliefs are before entering January of 2012. The energies of purification and upliftment slow down and we are given an opportunity to let go of the busy mind that demands to run so much of our lives. If you are sensing the high buzz of charged-live-energy due to external happenings and dramas then it is time to step back and gather yourself in a personal refugee.
The powers that be have to give it their best shot and try to get everyone in this plane of existence to live up to their highest ideals and hopes. The consciousnesses that hold the most resistance will be pounding their fists and yelling that things are not going right! These are the nay-sayers that would suggest that you can't do this or you can't do that. Don't get yourself in trouble by engaging in such energetic fires whether it on a political, social, economic, or personal level. Try to remember that the when a leader or government, a mother or father, a spouse or boss feel threatened the easiest way for them to feel in control is to create some sort of fear. With much ado and fanfare they can compromise your decision-making abilities and innate intuitions. In so doing you are now engaged in their quest instead of your own!
If you can reference an internal station of soul essence and Source magnificence this week the discordant frequencies will simply be something you notice on the way to where you really want to live. At the subtle realms of conscious reality we are being primed with consciousness-expanding, eye-opening, and imagination-stirring elixirs. Our New brain power is continually on the rise and if we pay attention this week we will notice that ingenious thoughts abound that bring about insights and answers.
The lightness of the holiday season can also help sustain us within a more appropriate frame of mind. Focusing our attention on the joy of Spirit, the tenderness of Love, and the Hope of what has always been promised will put us in perfect harmonic alignment with All That Is. Opening ourselves to the merriment of holiday festivities will create a portal of enthusiasm that the Power of Love can pour through delivering a new understanding of itself. After spending lifetime upon lifetime returning to Earth to learn the true meaning of Love we have finally stretched past our old ways of loving and there is now a real sense that our nature is about to be revealed in an auspicious manner.
Fulfill the higher qualities of your potential this week by planning your holiday calendar. Make lots of room for fun. Pencil in time-outs from stress and strain. Laugh. Rekindle friendships. Attend mass; participate in ritual. Jolt yourself into amazement by not making time for problems, dramas, or irreparable gaffs. Such scenarios will give the Angelic Orders of Heaven the opportunity to revive and reconnect your most aware aspects of Source to be of service to the least aware aspects of self. Not a bad Universal Christmas present if you ask me.
Isn't it great we get to play in order to Ascend?
Even when the outside world appears relentless in its urgency and stress
there is a subtle Presence that awaits us. A welcome of Divine intimacy in
which there is no barrier between It and me. It is the natural silence where
space opens up to coax the eternal more fully into expression. Within this
space I recognize the harvest of God is equally present in all existence. In
all creation, I see God expressed.
When the politics of the external dominates everything and Spirit's subtle
presence is largely unable to register its companionship with me I stop.
I stop and create. . . designing the structure of the invisible divine depths
with my imagination. In this ancient circle of belonging time loses its linearity
and I dwell in the shelter of God that is a living archive of transcendence.
Here I find healing from the storms of humanity. This is where comfort waits
to soothe my mind, Love becomes audible and tranquility longs to embrace
my call. Yes, in this kept-darkness the forgotten requiem of Divine affection
that created us waits to bless, heal and protect so we can remember who we
are. Far from the voices of the world I meet the loveliness that instinctively
awaits emergence. Daily life will forever quicken with complexity but the Eternal
carries us past the damaged experiences where we were wounded. Soon they
become distant and foreign as Spirit's grace restores us with confidence and
This moment I am humbled to so passionately sense the providence that secretly
shapes and guides my life. Thankfully healing Light now flows into every region
of my heart awakening fresh clarity and a desire "to live everything!". I release
these words knowing they are creative. I let it be and so it is. Amen.
