Believe in yourself. Believe in others. Have faith that you will find what you are looking for and be the person you intend to be. It does no good to criticize yourself or put yourself down. That just keeps you stuck. Relax. Enjoy yourself. Live soberly and joyously. Use your whole brain. Change is easy. Just let go of control. Let go of anxiety. Listen for your guidance and follow your true heart.
Wednesday, December 30, 2009
Please, please, please enjoy your life. You are not meant to suffer. It is always a choice. Whatever is happening, find enjoyment and acceptance. Find peace and joy. Find contentment. You are full of these things from birth and before. You are easily tuned into the spirit when you stop resisting. Allow. Allow. Allow.
Tuesday, December 29, 2009
Whenever you are quiet, the world opens up to you. Shut off all the racket and listen. More time in nature, more time in contemplation, more time with spirit makes everything better. Take a walk. Take a nap on a park bench. Go camping. Allow your thoughts to slow down. Right now they are whizzing by like cars on a freeway. Take the exit ramp, find a country lane, slow down to a crawl. Stop the car and sit down under a tree. Ssshhhh!
Monday, December 28, 2009
Find the most cheerful thought you can muster, and make it do for the moment. Then see if you can move one inch closer to happiness by releasing whatever thought comes up to cloud your cheer. Don't pile on by thinking "oh! I'm thinking negative thoughts again! I just can't do it right!" Just notice the thought, and release. Yea!
Sunday, December 27, 2009
Bless others with your acceptance and trust. Do not worry about anyone. That does no one any good. Allow each beautiful creature his or her own path through this journey. Treat each person you meet with kindness and acceptance. Allow them to know your true self. Bless them and trust their own guidance. That is the only way you can help them along.
Saturday, December 26, 2009
Every experience is worth paying attention to at least for a moment. If the experience is pleasant, lap it up. If unpleasant, ask the questions, "what am I learning here? What have I forgotten? What am I missing?" Find the answer inside and move on. Move on. MOVE ON! Turn your attention to what feels good and true in your heart of hearts. You are safe. You are here for a reason. You are beautiful and wise. You are deeply and truly loved. You are forgiven. You are free.
Friday, December 25, 2009
Isn't it wonderful how the one consciousness of all that is has created this glorious sun, this verdant and abundant earth, and the loving and intelligent creatures who live here? And isn't it wonderful how you each play an important role in the growth and enlightenment of this amazing creation? Know this about yourself: you are an important part of the movement toward divine enlightenment of your beautiful universe.
Thursday, December 24, 2009
Remember the message of your great teacher known as Jesus. Remember to love one another. Remember that you are worthy, even the least among you. Remember that wealth is not the path to heaven. Remember that the kingdom of heaven is within you, whatever observances and rituals you choose. You can find your own way to spiritual truth.
Wednesday, December 23, 2009
Please listen. You are everything you need. You have all the beauty and wisdom of the universe within you. Relax into your heart and find all the solace, acceptance, and inspiration you could possibly want. Relax into your heart and the spirit of god and goddess open up to you. Relax into your heart.
Tuesday, December 22, 2009
Notice when you are feeling better after having been unhappy or stressed out. What has really changed? Probably nothing much. That's because your mood is not dependent on outside events, but on the story that you tell yourself about those events: what you think it means that such and such has happened, more particularly, what you think it means about you or your safety or your ability to be loved. So change the story! Because the truth is you are always loved, you are always safe, you are always beautiful and wise, you are always forgiven, you are always free. Be an embodiment of that knowledge. With your actions, be an inspiration to others. Be free. Be an expression of that love that is you. Be the story of bliss.
Monday, December 21, 2009
Most of your unhappiness comes from the difference between what is and what you think "should be." Really, all of your unhappiness stems from this gap. Let it go and appreciate what is right now. Right now is where you live. Right now is where your power lies. Right now is where you find love, joy, pleasure, fulfillment. Right now.
Sunday, December 20, 2009
Listen. Everything is fine. Money comes and goes. Friends come and go. Health comes and goes. Life comes and goes. And still, everything is fine. Your only requirement is love love love, which is within you and surrounding you always. Love love love.
Saturday, December 19, 2009
Who says you should be different than you are? Who says? Believe in yourself and your process. The rest will fall naturally into place. Believe in yourself and your process and the rest will come to you quite intuitively and naturally. You are who you are and nothing will change that. Accept your beautiful self and you will always be beautifully guided.
Thursday, December 17, 2009
We are always available and ready to help. We are not waiting for you, or hoping you'll call on us. We are on our own paths, just as you are on yours, and we have learned to accept the situation you find yourself in and the ability or seeming inability to do anything different. So we are not hoping for any one thing or another for you or from you. Just know that we are always available, whatever else we are doing. Our energy is infinite, as is yours.
Wednesday, December 16, 2009
It's so interesting to watch you all struggle with what you "should" be doing. If only you would relax and go into your heart and let your true self guide your actions. If you are blaming yourself, or criticizing yourself, or thinking you're wrong or bad, you only cut yourself off from your true guidance. Let those "shoulds" just fly out the window and float up into the light. Relax, and ask yourself, "What's a good thing to do about this situation? What feels right?" The answers will come.
Tuesday, December 15, 2009
How about letting everything go and just having some fun today? This doesn't mean you have to shirk your duties. Go to work, by all means, clean the house. Whatever is on your list can still be accomplished. Just let go of all the stories about yourself and your world. Let go of all the worries about tomorrow. Just have some fun being a human alive in the beautiful, beautiful world. You'll be surprised how easy it is!
Monday, December 14, 2009
Because you are human, there will be low days. Ask for help. Someone is always willing to lend an ear or a hand. Ask for help. No one will know you need it and want it unless you ask. You only become closer to your loved ones when you show them your vulnerability. Open up to someone.
Saturday, December 12, 2009
You must understand that you are meant to be on earth. It is in your plan to be exactly where you are and who you are. You must understand that the path you are on is exactly the right path. If something is troubling you, that only means you are close to the lesson you are intending to learn this lifetime. What is it? When you say, "If only I were more...." what fills in the blank? Just BE that, whatever it is. Courageous, kind, open, loving, self-confident. Be that, and your troubles will evaporate. Start with imagining it. Get a picture of yourself being whatever it is you think you are not. Start with the words. "I am kind. I am courageous. I am divinely guided and protected. I am generous. I am fun-loving. I am open to everyone's true self." Find the words that identify what you think you are not and want to be and use them every day. Say them, write them down, morning and evening. Make a piece of art or a song from them. Record yourself saying them and listen to the recording several times a day. While you are using the words, close your eyes and get the picture, as clear and detailed as you can make it. Before you know it, the lesson will be ingrained in you and you will have no more need for your troubles.
Friday, December 11, 2009
Whatever you are doing is fine. If you judge it, relax your judgment. You can always ask the question "would I be better served doing something else?" But don't judge and don't criticize yourself. Being open and accepting of yourself is what encourages change.
Thursday, December 10, 2009
Allow your own best self to be present in any situation. Forgive and give love to the parts of you that misbehave. That's just your anxiety or hurt or anger talking. Listen for your loving self to speak. Allow your loving self to be in charge. Check in with your heart. The reward will be immediate in your calming body and smiling face. You will also soften the response of any one else around you. Allow the energy you add to a room to be calm, accepting, appreciative and loving.
Wednesday, December 9, 2009
Bring your focus back to this moment. How are you feeling? What have been the thoughts in your head over the last few minutes? What do you sense in your body? Is there a center of tension or pain? Let that part of your body speak to you. What message is there? Just relax and ask your neck, or knee or stomach "how can I help you?" You will receive a wise reply. Love all of yourself, pain and doubt included.
Tuesday, December 8, 2009
Be very gentle with your self and others. Be gentle. You are all blundering around doing the best you can with the resources available to you in the moment. Concentrate on what is good and right and gradually your blundering becomes less random and your actions become more focused and rewarding. Be very gentle with yourself.

When you are listening, you will always hear how we love and support you. When you are listening you will always know that we are here for you. When the din of the day is released, you will hear our ever-present love and acceptance. Release the din of the day and listen.
Friday, December 4, 2009
Look around you and see where your love might be needed. Then spread it around. Find an opportunity to volunteer your time, a shoulder to cry on, a non-judgmental ear. Move through the day with your head up and the love in your heart on display. Create a positive moment in someone's day.
Thursday, December 3, 2009
Wednesday, December 2, 2009
You humans all know that you are all worthy and deserving of the best in life. It is your anxiety and disbelief in your own worth that makes you have disdain for "the other." You feel you have to protect something that you imagine another group is threatening, and so you limit the freedoms of that group. In order to justify to yourselves why you are limiting another person's freedom, you make them less than human in some way, or evil. It's been going on since the dawn of the human race. When you settle in with your belief in your own divinity, then you will see the divinity in everyone else. Begin by loving yourself, and then you can look at others as divine beings worthy of your love. The differences between you are so minor and the similarities so fundamental. Love one another and all will be well.
Tuesday, December 1, 2009
Be conscious of your intentions. Ask yourself why you are doing the things you are doing. Live with purpose. Before embarking on a conversation with a friend or partner or child, ask yourself, "what is my desired outcome?" Make sure it's a positive, life-affirming, relationship-building desire. If your goal feels small or mean or unworthy of your highest self, let it go. Allow your intention to be love, acceptance, connection, growth, peace, prosperity, enjoyment, LIFE!
Monday, November 30, 2009
Below the depths of your pain is the beauty of your soul. Dive into those depths and swim right on down through to the beauty of your soul. Allow the pain to lighten, clear, and evaporate. Allow the painful thoughts to come and go without adding to the sea of pain. Allow the feelings of being owed something by the world to disappear. Allow the present circumstance to be absolutely fine. Your acceptance and grace will send the sea of pain up into the light and you will be happy and free.
Sunday, November 29, 2009
Blessings will shower upon you when you are open to them. Blessings are always available and always happening in the now. Turn your attention to your now. Now is all you have in this wide world. Now is the moment of your power and happiness. Now is the moment of your undyingness. Now is the moment of everything. Live here, in the now, and nothing need ever trouble you again.
Saturday, November 28, 2009
Because you are the one you can always rely on, you must love and cherish yourself always. Because your thoughts are constantly with you, you must always have kind words for yourself and others. Because your life is created moment by moment by your attention and focus, you must always choose wisely what you are paying attention to. Because you are deserving of the very best of care, only that very best of care is what you should give to yourself. Love yourself and the world you create will be informed by, filled with, radiant with love.
Friday, November 27, 2009
We are always here to protect you. Your span of life on earth is not pre-determined; there is a general goal and you may decide to live long or not so long in order to work toward your goal. You have many moments along the way when you might choose to leave the physical realm and come home, but it is never set in stone anywhere. It is always up to the will of your higher self. Choose life as long as you are enjoying it and making progress toward your goal of this lifetime. And even when neither of those conditions seems true, choose life because every moment is resplendent with opportunity. You will continue to learn over here, but the essence of the learning is quite different. Earth is a glorious rocketship of experience. Lap it up!
Thursday, November 26, 2009
Not channeling the message today. I (Kathie) want to pass along one of the many wonderful things I heard at the Abraham-Hicks workshop last Saturday. When you focus on gratitude, you are still giving energy to the negative thing you are grateful is not there. For example, if you say "I am grateful for my house," you are acknowledging that there is a real possibility that you could be homeless. How much more powerful it feels to say, "I so appreciate my house!" This distinction makes a lot of sense to me. I'm going to start working on consciously appreciating, rather than being grateful for, the good in my life.
Wednesday, November 25, 2009
Trust yourself. You have knowledge and ability that you haven't yet explored. You have eons of experience to draw upon, and when you are open it will become available to you at a conscious level. You know many things without knowing how you know them. Trust your intuition. From a loving and relaxed place, the first thought is usually the truth.
Monday, November 23, 2009
Believe in the truth of this: you are always able to create happiness in any particular moment of the day, no matter what is going on around you. It's always possible to find your way back to feeling good. "Oh well, that happened. What's next? What amuses me now? What gives me pleasure? What makes me laugh?" Every moment offers the opportunity to release any tension or anxiety, any negative thoughts, any unhealthy attachment to emotion. Begin by noticing, checking in with yourself. Then, whatever you are thinking or feeling that causes dis-ease, release it. Give it to the light. Find joy and appreciation, peace and generosity, comfort and stability. It's all inside of you.
Sunday, November 22, 2009
All your great teachers have the same message, and that message is love. You are good at obfuscating and bastardizing the message for your own painful purposes, but if you strip away all the bombast and dogma, what's underneath is love. You are beings of love, and when you are in touch with that knowledge, you cannot go wrong. Label the voice you are hearing at any moment in your head. Is it anxiety? depression? judgment? anger? entitlement? avarice? self-aggrandizement? When these voices are in charge, you enable and perpetuate the damages done by the human race. Whenever those voices are talking, it's okay to listen -- there might be some information there -- but always always always allow love to have its say. When you act from love, you create peace and harmony, inspiration and encouragement, discovery and growth.
Friday, November 20, 2009
Your angels are always around you and are working for your highest good, but sometimes their work consists of merely sitting back and allowing your process. They're never impatient, they're never judging you. They know you are in charge of creating your life. But always remember they are there to help when you ask.
Thursday, November 19, 2009
Believe in yourself, trust yourself. Relax and have a good time doing whatever it is you are doing at the moment, even if it's cleaning behind the refrigerator. Every moment is an opportunity for pleasure. Every moment.
Wednesday, November 18, 2009
When you realize that you are all capable of misbehavior, you can be more accepting and forgiving of others. When you let yourself move into judgment or criticism, you are not only hurting the spirit of the other person, you are darkening your own soul. Cleanse yourself of ill-feeling. Find compassion; it's always possible. In compassion and forgiveness, there is bliss. In compassion and foregiveness, there is infinite love. Live in compassion and forgiveness.
Tuesday, November 17, 2009
Abundance comes to you in many ways. Money can be got in honorable, pleasurable, and surprising ways. You humans have so many stories attached to money that you prevent yourselves from living the abundant lives that are open to you. Detach any psychological or emotional meanings from having money. You can receive it in joy and use it in joy. Trust yourself to receive money and other worldly abundance honorably, joyously, and lovingly, and to manage it and spend it wisely, generously, graciously, and gleefully. There's plenty for everyone. You choose.
Monday, November 16, 2009
Blessings will shower upon you every day of your life. Open your eyes and heart and you will see them. Blessings come in many forms and sometimes at first they might not seem like blessings. All is good. All is for your journey to your highest self. All is good.
Sunday, November 15, 2009
It might feel like anger gives you power; it certainly gives you energy. But it's only after you release the anger that you can really find your power. In anger, you are at the mercy of your emotions. Once the anger is acknowledged and released, then you can make a good decision about what steps, if any, to take in the situation. Sometimes the release is all you need.
Saturday, November 14, 2009
Release, release, release, release, release. Release grudges and regrets. Release attachment to others' behavior, release the "shoulds" and "have-tos" and "can'ts" in your mind and your vocabulary. Release anxiety. For your happiness and satisfaction, RELEASE ANXIETY. Release all those stories you tell yourself about who you are, what you ought to be doing, what somebody else owes you. Liberate yourself from judgment and criticism. Release, release, release, release!
Friday, November 13, 2009
Isn't it wonderful how the universe wraps its arms around you and provides love, safety, support, nurturance, guidance and wisdom? Isn't it wonderful how everything works out for the best? Isn't it wonderful how the universe lines things up for your pleasure and satisfaction? Isn't it wonderful how just the resources you need in the moement are provided for you? Isn't it wonderful how, even when you don't believe these things they are true? And isn't it wonderful how you can say these things to yourself and begin to believe them utterly? Believe.
Thursday, November 12, 2009
Every day you experience some form of connection with spirit. It helps to notice. Every time the phone rings and you know who it is before picking up, every time you think of someone and then pass that person on the street, every time you have a "feeling" and follow it through to some surprising discovery -- these are moments of spirit. The more you notice them the more they will come to you You might start a journal of these occurrences, or just be sure to tell a friend whenever they happen. You will find yourself more and more open to spirit, and that connection will serve you in many, many ways. Be as open as air to the limitless experience.
Wednesday, November 11, 2009
Be loving and kind always. Begin by being loving and kind to yourself. Under stress, get a sense of how old you feel. Maybe you're feeling like a scared 3-year-old. Allow your adult self to give that beautiful little three-year-old exactly what he needs: calm, safety, freedom to explore, reasonable limits. Maybe you are feeling like a rebellious teenager. Allow that teenager to express all the complicated feelings she is having. Don't deny or minimize any of them. Then help her sort out the best move to make. You can always call on your centered adult self to be charge in any situation.
Tuesday, November 10, 2009
It is important to stand up for yourself -- to take your rightful place in the world. It is entirely possible to do this with love and acceptance of all those around you, and with no attachment to any particular response from them. Their reaction is their own business, not yours, and as long as you act in kindness and calm, you will be fine, whatever others do. Take your space, stand in the light, and spread love.
Monday, November 9, 2009
Before you come to any conclusion, relax and go into your heart. Whatever you are making a judgment on has many aspects. This is always true. From your heart, the decisions you make are likely to be for your highest good. That is, from your deepest heart of hearts. Not from your passions or desires of the moment. Take your time. Nothing has to happen right now.
Sunday, November 8, 2009
You must recognize that the world you see around you is the world created by your consciousness -- the worrld created by our universal consciousness which is all that is. When you recognize that fact, you can relax about what is going on right now. "Oh! Look what I've created now! Do I want to stick with it, or move on?" Focus on what's good and life-affirming. Life-affirming. LIFE-affirming. Create joy, contentment, gratitude, pleasure, peace, harmony. Create the life you want.
Saturday, November 7, 2009
Let us into your heart. From your heart, the answers will emerge. We are always going to listen to you and guide you. Go into your heart and hear the first answer. When you hear us, your body settles and relaxes. That's how you know you are with us. When you start second-guessing, then your body lets you know by feeling nervous and agitated. Feel the look on your face. When you are with us, you are relaxed. When you are in your anxiety, your brow is furrowed. When you hear us, you smile. When you hear us, your breathing slows and deepens. Go into your heart and listen. We are here.
Friday, November 6, 2009
Whenever you are feeling doubtful of your abilities, just relax into the task at hand. Whether you do it well or poorly, just relax into the task. Enjoy the doing of it and let the outcome take care of itself. Enjoy the doing of it and it will be of value.
Thursday, November 5, 2009
Only the thinnest veil separates you from your bliss. Only the thinnest veil of unreason. Once you allow the truth of the perfection of the present moment, then the bliss is yours. Once your eyes are open to the eternal truth of your soul, the bliss is yours. Once you release the attachment to the story of your life, the bliss is yours. Relax. The veil dissolves, and bliss is revealed.
Wednesday, November 4, 2009
Tuesday, November 3, 2009
The ones you love are able to love you in return only as much as their ability to love themselves. Do not meet resistance with anger. Allow your friends and family their own journeys through this life on earth. Meet resistance with love and acceptance, and your path will be smoother and more joyful. And maybe so will theirs. The people in your life might not be there for the reason you think.
Monday, November 2, 2009
When you allow us to take over, the way becomes easy and the path very clear. When you follow your guidance, there is no need for deciding this or that. The next step is obvious. When you are listening to us, you will never make a wrong turn. Just keep listening and all will be well.
Sunday, November 1, 2009
You have these ideas that certain times are better than others for contacting spirit, but really all it takes is your willingness and your quiet mind and body. You can hear us even in the din of a busy street. Just open to spirit in a state of acceptance, and we will speak to you and through you. Bless you.
Friday, October 30, 2009
Thursday, October 29, 2009
Believe in your own truth. Stop and listen. What are you thinking and feeling? What is your body telling you? Listen with your heart open and your mind free from doubt. When you step outside of the thinking and feeling long enough to notice it, then you can recognize the stories that are driving your anxiety. Let go of the stories. Look on your negative thoughts and feelings as if they were hurt children, and you will find the compassion and love you need to detach from the sense that something is wrong. Everything is just as it is, and with acceptance you will find a place of rest in the present moment.
Wednesday, October 28, 2009
Go into your heart for the answer. Go into your heart with love and acceptance. Whatever you fear can be accepted. Whatever your situation, you can accept and move from there. Go into your heart and let the angels and guides speak to you. We are always ready to help in any way when you are ready to listen.
Tuesday, October 27, 2009
Monday, October 26, 2009
It's okay to combine the physical and the spiritual. You are here to experience human life. Go out and experience it! Enjoy your body. Enjoy the sensuousness of this beautiful planet earth. Enjoy the sights, smells, tastes, sounds and textures. Infuse every physical experience with your soul-wisdom. Feel good.
Sunday, October 25, 2009
You might have to close your eyes to open your eyes. You might have to close your eyes to open your heart. You might have to close your eyes to open your mind. When you close your eyes, the distractions of the physical world have less power. When you close your eyes, your angels and guides can be heard more clearly. When you close your eyes, you are open to the infinity of being of which you are a glorious and important part. Close your eyes.
Saturday, October 24, 2009
No one and nothing outside of you is the cause of your anger or hurt. The situation or the action of another is what it is. The source of your anger or hurt is the meaning that you place upon the situation or action -- more particularly, what you think the situation or action says about you -- about your safety, your worth, your life. Allow your own natural ability to heal to be your first refuge. "He's doing that. What can I do now, what am I willing to do now, that will allow me to maintain my own sense of peace and happiness?" A wonderful way to state your intention is to begin "I love myself, therefore...." When you feel that self-love bubbling up, when you allow your actions to be informed by that self-love, you will be open to generosity, understanding, compassion and acceptance. Give up the stories you tell yourself. Find the truth. You create your life, moment by moment.
Friday, October 23, 2009
Before you take any action, stop and take a breath. Allow your higher nature to intervene. Ask yourself if the action is coming from place of love or of anxiety. When you act from anxiety, the situation is not bettered, even if you get what you want in the immediate moment. There will be consequences. An angry parent might get immediate compliance from a child by yelling or hitting, but the long term negative consequences are great. The same is true of any action you might take from anxiety. Just take a breath and reflect. "Am I acting from love?"
Thursday, October 22, 2009
Believe in the strength of your life plan. You made your plan when you were in spirit, and you knew what you were doing and why. However, there is always room for change and adaptation. Nothing is set in stone. If you want, you can avoid the struggles you were planning on having. If you want to learn patience, just relax. If you want to learn to accept love, just love. If you want to learn to be responsible, step up to the plate. Smile and move forward, day by day, with love and kindness, with hope and faith. All blessings are availble to you.

Behold the glory of the present moment. Behold the beauty of the soul within you. Behold the glory of the morning and the evening. What more could you possibly want? As you enter fully into the glory of the moment, you support the passage of your physical self into more and more happiness. More and more of what you enjoy comes clear to you, and more and more of what you love moves into your physical realm. Behold the glory of the present moment.
Sunday, October 18, 2009
If you will only listen, you will hear the perfection of your beautiful self in every song on the wind. Every breath you take is beautiful and perfect. Everything you do is perfect and beautiful. If you will only listen from the deepest part of yourself, you will hear the perfection of the eternal soul that is you. You will hear the perfect self inside the imperfect creature you have identified yourself with. If you will only listen with the heart's ear of lovingkindness, you will hear the beautiful perfection of the perfect soul you are.
Saturday, October 17, 2009
Find your peace in the moment. Find your breath and your joy in the moment. Find your enjoyment in the small things of life. Find your happiness in helping and being helped, in learning and growing, and you indeed will glow with the light of god/goddess.
Friday, October 16, 2009
Will you not determine your own future? Will you not be the one to decide for yourself? Will you let others' actions dictate your mood? All it takes is to relax and breathe and know that you are in charge of creating your life. Other people's actions need not effect your happiness in the deepest sense. Find your own path and walk it with your head held high. Find your own true self in the universe and be that for all you're worth, which is everything.
Thursday, October 15, 2009
One day you will surely again know the blessing of spirit. But your knowledge is always with you. You don't have to die physically to remember. Sit still. Breathe deeply and evenly. Allow the thoughts in your head to float away on a stream of blissful beingness. There you will contact your eternal soul. There you will free yourself from the attachment to this outcome or that requirement. All that is required for you to be happy is for you to detach from your unhappiness. Detach from wanting things to be different. Just be where you are right now.
Wednesday, October 14, 2009
Resistance only exhausts you, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. When you stay in resistance to a situation, you are clinging to it just as it is. When you accept the situation fully, then all your systems relax, and from this relaxed place, better decisions are made. Then you can choose to leave or stay. As long as you stay in resistance, you are married to the situation. Surrender, relax, accept.

Below the surface, you are one with everything. Below the surface, you are one with the universe. The god-form is within you and takes on many shapes. Your particular method of observance is unique and valid. As long as your observance is heart-guided and loving, there is no restriction on your path to divinity.
Saturday, October 10, 2009
The world is open to you for exploration. The physical world can be explored in person or in books and movies. The emotional and intellectual worlds can be explored with your heart and mind. The spiritual world can be explored by sitting, breathing, and allowing it to make itself known to you. Watch the images, thoughts and feelings that arise. Notice the thoughts that keep you attached to your unhappiness. Notice the limitations you place on your spirit. From this place of awareness your exploration can begin to break all barriers to perfect bliss.

Pay attention. Be grateful. Find joy. Look for opportunities to serve the greater good. Take good care of yourself. Concentrate. Be serious-minded and light-hearted. Know that protection and guidance are always available to you. Listen to the wisdom in your heart. Trust yourself. Accept yourself, others, and the life you have chosen. You are beautiful.
Thursday, October 8, 2009
Some people are happier than you are, some are less happy. Neither fact has any bearing on your happiness. Some people are luckier, richer, more attractive, others less fortunate, less attractive, more limited. Neither fact has any bearing on your worth. All these things -- physical attractiveness, wealth, possessions, status -- are of the physical realm, and therefore transitory. When you spend time comparing yourself to others, favorably or unfavorably, you turn away from your life, from yourself. Always always always bring the focus back to your life right now this minute. What is there to do or enjoy right here right now? That is life.

Believe me when I tell you, all is for your path to enlightenment. All your experiences inform your soul and move you along your path. However, choose to focus on what is good and pleasureable, what is uplifting and kind, what connects you with others. In this way, your path will be smooth.

You're full of ideas -- go with one that calls you. What's the worst that could happen? It won't work. That's okay. Then you try the next one. The point is just try it, give it your best shot. It'll be fun, whatever happens. Out of all the ideas you put into play, at least a few of them will reap rewards. It's worth it to take a leap. And the leap itself is a valuable experience.

So much beauty is created everyday by the human race. Spend your time with the beauty of the world in your thoughts. Focus on the beauty of nature and of human creation. The artistry available in the world is staggering. Whatever your taste, you will find beauty. Isn't it better to focus your energy on beauty than on suffering? Music, art, gardening, design, architecture. Rejoice in the beauty created by humans and the beauty created by the divine consciousness. Give yourself the pleasure and the blessing of beauty every day.
Wednesday, September 30, 2009
Rejoice in the feminine aspects of life, moving inward, receiving knowledge intuitively, nurturing and encouraging others, softness, warmth, physical connection to the earth. The masculine attributes have certainly had their sway for centuries, millennia. Open up to the moon, the earth, the waters.
Tuesday, September 29, 2009
You have a gift to share when you are ready. Allow knowledge of your particular gift to arise in your consciousness. It cannot be forced. Follow your heart, do what comes naturally and easily for you. When you are open and honest with your own truth then you will be well-guided. When your behaviors are not in service of your highest good you will know at some level. Allow this knowledge also to come to consciousness, so that you may open up to the change that will move you along your path of spiritual growth and joyful living.
Monday, September 28, 2009
Everyone is fine. Everyone is you. You are everyone. Get that through your heads. You are all one nation, you humans, and you will serve yourselves and your planet by believing it and acting accordingly. "Love thy neighbor as thyself" is a good one -- and it's important to recognize that everyone on the planet is your neighbor. Everyone. Everyone.
Sunday, September 27, 2009
Whatever you experience is okay, at the level of spirit. Your struggles all serve your soul's growth. However, you can stop struggling by accepting joy into your heart and allowing pain to depart. There is no intrinsic need to suffer. Learn the lessons of love, compassion, acceptance, wholeness, eternity, contentment by continually turning your thoughts to these qualities. Then your light will shine with a constancy that will be a boon to a struggling humanity. You can show the way.
Saturday, September 26, 2009
Yes, we are all migrating souls. From one dimension to another through all the ages of time and the limitlessness of space. Your soul has taken many journeys and has many more in store. Delight in the current expression of your eternal soul. Delight in the lessons you have chosen to learn this time around. Delight in the experiences you are having. Delight in the people you are meeting and loving. Don't be afraid of anything. Allow your guidance to assist you along your path to enlightenment. Your journey from birth to death in any one lifetime is such a small part of who you really are. Never forget the eternal soul that is the wholeness of your experience.
Friday, September 25, 2009
Annoyance. What can be done about it? Speak up. Let it go. The same is true of frustration, envy, anger, resentment, jealousy -- all the uncomfortable emotions. If there is action that can be taken, take action. Make sure you are acting in a calm and deliberative manner, with an open and loving heart. Once you have done all you can do, let it go. Let it go. Let it go. Accept the other person's response or lack of response. Accept your friend or partner or family member exactly as she is, and concentrate on the good in the relationship. If you can't go on with the situation as it stands, in full acceptance, then move on. Don't hold on to the negative emotion. It is doing you no good if you are simply clinging to it in self-righteousness, waiting for someone else to change. Release.
Thursday, September 24, 2009
Wherever you cast your eye, there is beauty. Even in suffering, one can see the beauty and valor of the human spirit. Focus on what is beautiful and fine and glorious in your world, and you will be contributing to the forward progress of human evolution. Focusing on the beauty allows your whole body to relax and your face to take on the light of the universe. From this place, your effect on others is always going to be positive, and in this way the light spreads. Beneath the surface, all is beauty.
Wednesday, September 23, 2009
Let your dreams inform you. Whenever you remember a dream, there is a message for you from your higher self or from one of us. Consult dream dictionaries and guides to universal symbols, by all means, but the symbols are your own, so just allow the correct interpretation to come to you. You will find an answer to "what is this dream trying to tell me?" Then act on the message in your waking life in some way, even if only symbolically. Your dreams enrich your life and guide you, if you will pay them heed.
Tuesday, September 22, 2009
Before you forget, tell someone you love him. Before you forget, tell someone why you appreciate her. Before you forget, do something nice for someone. Before you forget, contribute to good works. Before you forget, be grateful. Start your day with a smile, and the intention to live this moment now. That's all you need.
Monday, September 21, 2009
Sunday, September 20, 2009
Believe your own heart when it comes to matters of importance. Believe your own heart. Let not the prattle of the day influence you. Believe in your own heart and you will always choose light. The wisdom is within you and always available to you. Believe in your own heart.
Saturday, September 19, 2009
Of course, you have faults. You are not always hard-working. You are not always kind. You are not always completely honest. Of course, you are human -- by definition, a work in progress, a process of evolution. Change is constant. Just take care that, most days, most of the time, to the best of your abilities, the change is moving you in a positive direction. And bless the process of blossoming.
Friday, September 18, 2009
Thursday, September 17, 2009
The people in your life are there for a reason, and not necessarily the reason you believe. Just let relationships ebb and flow naturally -- don't cling to anyone and don't hold anyone at arm's length. Be open and honest, straightforward and genuine with each person you know and relationships will serve to enrich your life and encourage and nurture your psychic and spiritual growth. Look at each person each day as if you have never seen her before and she is the most interesting creature in the world. Your life will be the richer for it.
Wednesday, September 16, 2009
Keep at it. Positive action will bring positive results. But remember that your goal is a mutable thing. Have the ideal picture in mind, by all means, but know that life changes you and will modify your picture as you move along. Go about the process of living with an open mind and heart, listen for your guidance, and you will always take the right step. And you will know when not to move, when just to rest and wait. Bless you in all your endeavors.
Tuesday, September 15, 2009
Watch for your opportunities for helping yourself to something delicious. Watch for a chance to provide a laugh for someone. Notice the opportunity for joy at every moment of the day. It doesn't take much. If you love and accept yourself, you need not strive any more. All your opportunities -- for work and play and love -- will be easily available and easily snapped up. The universe wants you to succeed and be happy. Step outside of the anxiety. Let go of striving and embrace being.
Monday, September 14, 2009
Believe in the benevolence of the world around you. Put your attention on what's good and helpful. Smile at everyone you meet. Relax your whole body -- every inch of it. Believe yourself to be divinely protected and loved. Act from this place of safety and benevolence and all will be well.
Sunday, September 13, 2009
We know that when you are unhappy or angry and someone tells you to "shake it off," "lighten up," or "smile," it is not usually met with appreciation. But the truth is, if you would follow that advice, you would feel better. Put your body into a posture that looks like feeling good and your brain will get the message. Stand up straight, smile, walk briskly. Sing. These actions are incompatible with anxiety and so will dispel the mood. Try it once. It works the other way, too. If you are avoiding your sadness or suppressing your anger, put your body in the posture of that neglected emotion, and the feelings will come along. Physical, mental, emotional, spiritual -- all are connected and interactive. Any change in one will affect all.
Saturday, September 12, 2009
Your only job today is to let go of the anxiety that's holding you back. Trust, and leap. There are untold riches in store for you today. Trust and let go. Your anxiety only wants to keep you in prison--the prison of all the stories you are making up in your head. Release! Release! Release! Leap!
Friday, September 11, 2009
Thursday, September 10, 2009
We are always watching out for you. We do not intervene unless it is in the plan that you need an extra boost now and then. Everything is for your journey to enlightenment and peace. Self-acceptance is the beginning and the end. Keep reinforcing self-acceptance, and the acceptance of others will follow naturally. If you want extra help, just ask. But remember to ask for peace, acceptance, contentment, joy, connection, abundance, generosity and love. When you focus your energy on these blessings, you create the life you have always wanted.

Tuesday, September 8, 2009
Let's stop all this talk about saving the planet. She is fine. It's you who are in danger, and that's what you must remember. Mother Earth will prevail, and if you want your generations to come to have a home here, then you must stop abusing her. If you don't, she will throw you off and go on about her business of living.
Monday, September 7, 2009
Nothing is a problem until you label it so. Nothing need cause anxiety. You simply have a situation, a current set of circumstances. Look at what is going on around you objectively, and then choose your best action. "This is what's happening. What can I do in this moment to make my life good?" Once you've taken action, let it go. Give it back to the universe, and go about your day lighthearted. Stop waiting for other people to act differently. Relax judgment. Release expectation.
Sunday, September 6, 2009
Question everything. Don't just take on the beliefs of your parents, your friends, people you like or admire. Think about it. Allow your true self to weigh in on the subject. Whatever it is might be true for someone else, but is it really true for you? Think freely, without assumption. Look at each experience with new eyes.
Saturday, September 5, 2009
Friday, September 4, 2009
When you humans look to us, you are happier and more relaxed. Too often you are caught up in the mundane, which causes anxiety and stress. You are always "deciding" things. Why not let it go? Why not let the next step come naturally and easily? Why not listen to your guides and let them do what they're here for? What could it possibly hurt? Nothing is so important that it needs to cause so much unhappiness. Every choice you make has good and bad attached, so just choose. And, as often as possible, choose what allows you to relax and be your best self. Life on earth is fun!
Thursday, September 3, 2009
Your journey is not predetermined, not set in stone. You have chosen your path and what you are here to work on, but it is always in flux, always in play. If you come to your lesson the easy way, that's wonderful. You can let go of suffering to learn, and just learn. So instead of creating situations that try your patience in order to learn patience, just relax and accept that this moment now is perfect and nothing has to be different for you to be okay. Nothing has to be different for you to be okay.
Wednesday, September 2, 2009
Today your message is about allowing. Allowing sadness, anxiety, negative thinking -- all the things you want to deny or block out. By allowing those thoughts and feelings to have their say, by listening to that part of you that holds onto the negative, you are saying to the small child within, "Yes, I see you. Yes, I know you are in distress. I'm here and I will take care of you. Let's just see if we can find a way to feel better." Any child would respond to that message. "Snap out of it" just doesn't work and feels disrespectful. Listen to the child. Be the adult. In this way, the negative thoughts and feelings are as ephemeral as the wind, and will soon pass.
Tuesday, September 1, 2009
Below the surface you are who you are. Allow that you to shine through the artifice of daily living. Allow your inner light into every moment. What you look like, what you do all day, what you own are only the trappings of life. You are the beautiful and holy light beneath the surface. That light is one with all that is. Be aware. When you are in touch with the light, all is love, and nothing is too much for you to manage. You can relax and enjoy life, whatever is going on around you.
Monday, August 31, 2009
Believe in what you want to do with your life. Your life is yours to direct as you may wish. Find what intrigues you, what gives you joy, and then pursue it for all you are worth. Happiness in work is crucial. Money means nothing. Do what you love.
Sunday, August 30, 2009
Whenever you are tired, rest. Whenever you are hungry, eat. Whenever you are sad, cry. Be conscious of your physical and emotional needs and take good care of yourself. Whenever you are lonely, connect. Find the best way to manage your needs and to find positive movement. You are worth it. You are beloved.
Saturday, August 29, 2009
Friday, August 28, 2009
Take care to shoulder your responsibility in any disagreement. Do not say "she made me...." You are responsible for your own actions no matter how provocative the other person is. Own it. Look at your own behavior and apologize when necessary. Make amends. Make it right. Then forgive yourself and move on, knowing that next time you can handle yourself and any situation with love and peace.
Thursday, August 27, 2009
You create your own reality. Ghosts, demons, aliens -- all are created by the consciousness of the person perceiving them. Your very reality is in your perception. Your true reality is of spirit -- pure energy. Your life on earth is an illusion created for the purpose of learning and growing and moving along your path to your ultimate enlightenment. Enjoy it, take care what you create, and focus on what's good and true to your holy spirit. Whatever is unpleasant or scary or depressing, simply turn your attention away and it will disappear -- hell is only the fear of heaven. Heaven is at your fingertips at all times.
Wednesday, August 26, 2009
Believe that you are here for a good reason. When you decided to come here, you knew what you were doing and you had the help of great teachers and guides. Believe that your purpose is yours alone and that your progress along your path is in your hands and heart. Relax into this knowledge. It will help you in your darkest times. Trust yourself.
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
Monday, August 24, 2009
Sadness is nothing to be afraid of. Allow your sadness to inform you. Take a quiet moment to let it speak. Cradle it as you would a tiny child, with love and attention. Listen. When you know what is at its root, then you will be able to release it and move on to a brighter mood. Honor all your feelings. They are true and valid. And when acknowledged, will pass.
Sunday, August 23, 2009
Saturday, August 22, 2009
Create something. A painting, a story, a film, a dress, a table, a lamp, a recipe, a song, a poem. It doesn't have to be "good." You don't have to show it to anybody if you don't want to. Just do it. Let your critical mind take a rest, and just create something. Who knows what might come out of your subconscious? It will be fun, possibly therapeutic, and energizing. Do it every day. Create something from your heart, from your soul. Your world will be better because of it.
Friday, August 21, 2009
Thursday, August 20, 2009
Be open and honest in your relationships. Ask. You will torture yourself wondering and wondering what the other person is thinking or wanting. Ask. Talk it over. Allow your partner his freedom. Allow your partner her space. If your love is real, you don't need to be together constantly. If your love is real, you don't need to know every little movement your partner makes. Give each other the blessing of trust. Allow your partner to live his own life, and take care that you live your own. Take pleasure in each other's individual pursuits. Come together at the end of the day and share what's happened openly. Tell her how you feel and what you are afraid of. Tell him your hopes and dreams. Talk and talk and talk. Open up to intimacy.
Wednesday, August 19, 2009
Though you might think that you are all alone, you are not. You might have chosen a solitary path in this lifetime, but we are always with you. There is a lot to learn from the solitary path. Self-reliance, self-confidence, self-worth. When not relying on outside approval, one must learn to approve of oneself. If you have chosen the path of aloneness, enjoy it and use it to find your own true glorious self.
Tuesday, August 18, 2009
Respect yourself for who you are, not for who you could be. Accept your own strengths and talents. Use them for the good of the world around you. Each of you has a different gift to give the world. Some of you will affect millions, some just the people around you. It is all worthy as long as it is in the service of light. Bring love and light into every action today.
Monday, August 17, 2009
Looking back is a fine thing to do as long as you are conscious that you are looking back and that your life is now. If all you are doing is wishing to retrieve something of the past, then your time is better spent focusing on the present. But if you frequently find yourself regretting the loss of something, do what you can to bring it into your life today in some form. Maybe you can't play major league baseball, but you can coach little league. Maybe you can't get that old lover back, but you can do the things that were fun with that person, and you can act as you did when you were happy with that person. Be today the person you were in that happy time, and all will be well.
Sunday, August 16, 2009
Believe in the goodness of life. Believe in the goodness of your fellow creatures. Believe in the positive, forward motion of your days. Believe in your ultimate happiness. Believe in the eternal nature of your soul. Believe in your guides and counselors in spirit. Relax and have fun. We will protect you.
Saturday, August 15, 2009
Be aware of everything. Notice your thoughts and feelings. Notice your friends and neighbors. Notice the weather. Notice the wildlife around you. At work and play, be conscious of what you are doing. Choose your words thoughtfully. All of this is just to say what many, many teachers are constantly teaching. Be Here Now. This is when you are alive. This moment now is what is true. Everything else is just a story in your head. This moment now is your opportunity to have a good life. Not "if" or "when" but right now, just the way things are. Be happy.
Friday, August 14, 2009
Your friends are precious. Remember them in your thoughts every day, even when they are far away. The people who love you contribute to your health and well-being in countless ways. Be grateful and do you best to be kind and thoughtful to them always. Cherish their hearts in your precious heart.
Thursday, August 13, 2009
You must learn to enjoy the desire as well as the having. It can feel good knowing that you want something that you don't have. It can feel good just seeking an answer and not finding it. Enjoy the process as well as the reward, and life will be filled with pleasure. "Aren't I lucky that I live in this world where the possibility of pleasure exists!?!" Enjoy the curiosity, the gaze, the daydreaming, the pondering, the planning. What comes to fruition will come in its own time. Enjoy the wanting.
Wednesday, August 12, 2009
Tuesday, August 11, 2009
Most of you are thinking this is easier said than done. Acceptance, forgiveness, change. However, it is not harder than you yourself make it. Begin with the words, for example, "I release all resistance to change, I embrace change, I celebrate change." Say it til it makes you smile, and then say it a few more times. You will gradually see yourself loosening up, being more flexible, being open to what's on offer for you. Love is all around you and it is what you are made of. The divine intelligence of the universe is love.
Monday, August 10, 2009
Remember your loved ones when they're gone. They are not really gone. Remembering them and speaking of them and talking to them and blessing them keeps them close to you. They are here for you when you want them. Remember, over here, our energy is eternal and limitless. We are busy helping newly crossed over spirits and we are busy living other lives in other dimensions and we are busy with our own journeys, but the part of a soul which was your beloved can still come to you and help you and love you. Time and space mean nothing here.
Sunday, August 9, 2009
Humility and forgiveness. "I'm sorry." "I forgive you." Atonement. We all make mistakes. We all err in judgment. We all hurt our friends and loved ones, and others we do not even know. When you err, do your best to make it right. When you are wronged, forgive. Pride and righteousness just wall up your heart. Humility and forgiveness connect you with every living creature.
Friday, August 7, 2009
Detach yourself from the notion of death as loss. We are all eternal, and death is merely slipping through to another dimension. You are so enamored of the physical form, that you believe the loss of the physical form is paramount, but from our perspective it is the merest trifle. You ask one another to live forever, so that you might also live forever. Well, you are already living forever. Yes, you will miss the physical manifestation of your loved one. Yes, you will miss the voice, the body. When you find yourself missing his form, just turn your attention to his soul. What did she give you in life? How did she touch you? Her words and attentions and love are still with you. Just listen.
Thursday, August 6, 2009
Most of the time you are happy with the status quo. That's fine -- a good thing. We're always talking about acceptance, right? However, there is nothing in the concept of acceptance that means complacency. Action must be taken in order to get what you want in life. Announce to the universe with your positive movement that you are ready for your desired change and the universe will find many ways to support you. "I want this and this is what I'm prepared to do toward that goal." Energy begets energy.
Wednesday, August 5, 2009
Believe in yourself utterly. Believe that you can accomplish what you most want in life. Believe that you are a beautiful, and wise, and loving person. Believe that you have the universe at your fingertips. Believe that when you die,nothing is lost but the physical form you are now inhabiting. Believe that the path to happiness is in disassociating yourself from that physical form and recognizing your true nature. You do not have to die physically to be born into eternity.
Tuesday, August 4, 2009
Yes, infuse everything you do with joy. Yes, bring your full attention to what you are currently doing, however mundane and routine. Yes, open up to the beauty of the universe, and of your fellow creatures. Yes, try it and see! Yes, take a chance! Yes, LIVE!
Monday, August 3, 2009
Has it ever occurred to you that you rely too much on money for pleasure? Take pleasure from things that cost money, by all means, but that is not the only resource you have. Pleasure is the easiest thing in the world to gain. Breathing is pleasurable. Sex is pleasurable. Eating is pleasurable. Walking is pleasurable. Sleeping is pleasurable. Talking is pleasurable. Laughing is pleasurable. Dreaming is pleasurable. Remembering is pleasurable. Working is pleasurable. Even crying can be pleasurable. Enjoy everything.
Sunday, August 2, 2009
Laugh at yourself. The human condition is laughable. You are all struggling and striving and you have forgotten so much that you know when you are here with us. It's good to throw up your hands and surrender and just laugh. "Oh, well." Do the best you can, honor your mistakes as opportunities to learn, and move on to the next good thing. Relax. Everything's a little bit funny and a little bit sad. Life is what it is.
Saturday, August 1, 2009
Just celebrate. There's always something to celebrate. If you look around, your eye will alight on something of beauty, something funny, something endearing. Allow your heart to celebrate. Be proud of your accomplishments, however small. Be proud of the kind word to a stranger. Be grateful for a blue sky or refreshing rain. Sing Sing Sing.
Friday, July 31, 2009
Blessed are those who bless others. Good rule. When you find yourself judging someone else, just send up a prayer for that person and look to yourself. How am I bringing this on? How can I improve my behavior? How can I change this situation for the better? It might seem easier to blame the other person in any conflict, but that path is ultimately frustrating because you have given over all control to the other. When you look to your own contribution, then there is action that you can take to improve things. Isn't that better? Isn't that more empowering? Allow the other person his path, and mind your own.
Thursday, July 30, 2009
In a relationship, acceptance is the path to true contentment. When you can relax and see your partner for who she or he is, and not constantly hold in your mind some idea of what she or he should be, then you are able to love and be loved here and now. Let go of the "potential" and love the person you have chosen. Focus on what's likable about your partner, not what's annoying. Reveal your true self. Ask for what you want and graciously accept the answer, yes or no. Think every day of ways you can be of service to your partner. Approach problems as a team, not as adversaries. Ask yourself, "what can I do to make this better?" Have fun together. Share dreams and desires. Work on common goals. Be honest and open. Happiness will ensue.
Wednesday, July 29, 2009
One day you will see. All of the illusion will be stripped from your eyes and you will see the beauty of the universe and the beauty of the soul you spring from. When you are reunited with your higher dimensional self and the ones who travel with you on your soul's journey, you will have no fear or anxiety, you will have no doubts. Why not accept that there is more to you than the bag of bones you inhabit? Why not accept that you are the earthly expression of an eternal and everlasting soul? When you accept the fact, you can let go of all attachment to the daily workings of your life in this realm and enjoy each day as it is -- exactly as it is -- knowing that your higher purpose is to grow and learn. Everything that happens is fodder for the growth of your soul. The smallest thing can be interpreted as meaningful. Watch out for a message from a bird today. Listen closely to the song in your heart. Watch for signs of your true nature and purpose. We are constantly sending them. You are blessed.
Tuesday, July 28, 2009
It's okay to look closely at your life. Open up to what frightens you or makes you sad. Shine the light of acceptance on all your experience. Knowledge brings wisdom when it is gained from heart and mind in concert, when it is spirit-led. Open up to your true self and what you will find will be magnificent. When you are in touch with your true nature, you will relax and accept others, because then you will see how fragile, how strong, how beautiful everyone is.
Monday, July 27, 2009
Remember when you were twelve years old. What excited you then? What did you want to be? What gave you joy? What were you afraid of? Find a picture of yourself at that age and look into the eyes of that child. Tell her you love her. Tell her she is beautiful. Tell her she can do as she pleases. Find a way to bring some of that world into your world today. Enjoy the feeling of being on the brink of something wondrous. Because you are.
Sunday, July 26, 2009
Let's face it. Sometimes you misbehave. Sometimes you hurt others. You are not always taking good care of yourself. You are not always in a peaceful spot. It doesn't matter. This, too, you can notice, accept, and change. Make amends when necessary. Atone. Apologize, and forgive yourself. It's safe to make a mistake and safe to own up to it. You are always learning. You are not perfect and you are perfect. Both things are true. There is so much room in your psychic world that you are all things at once. Just relax into the part of you who is humanly humane. Remind yourself of your good qualities, and focus on the good qualities in others. Blame, self-doubt, hatred -- all come from fear. Don't let fear rule your actions. Love makes things easier. Acceptance is calming and healthy.
Saturday, July 25, 2009
You choose at every moment whether to be happy or sad, angry or calm, hateful or forgiving, tense or relaxed. You are choosing whether it feels like a choice or not. What you focus on is the key. When you notice anger or grief or sadness or hatred, step back. Observe. Find the awareness of the thoughts that go with the emotions. This is your ticket out. Once you are aware, you can choose otherwise. Take every opportunity to choose peace.
Friday, July 24, 2009
Joy is everywhere. Joy is your birthright. Joy is as easy as one -two-three. Joy is within you at all times. Joy is always a possibility. Joy requires only the will to forgive. Joy is a blessing for all. Joy is in acceptance, in attention, in gratitude. Be Joyful.
Wednesday, July 22, 2009
If you are waiting for something to happen, you are delaying living. Just live in the moment and enjoy what is here for you now. Everything else in your mind is just that -- in your mind, not in the real world. Love those around you now, enjoy the job you have, the house you live in, the state of your health, the body you inhabit. It's good to have a vision and make plans, but moment to moment, right here right now -- this is your life.

Hush. Be still. Everything is fine. We are always with you and always speaking to you. All you have to do is listen. When there is a decision to be made, get quiet and ask. When you are hurt and lonely, get quiet and call on us. We are always standing by. The first thing that floats into your mind is generally the best answer for you in that moment. Everything else is second-guessing. Allow the flow of spirit to guide you and all will be well.

Allow the blessings that you have to be shared with everyone you meet. Bring sunshine and warmth, comfort and cheer, blessings and solace to each moment. The briefest encounter can brighten someone's day enough to change the whole rest of it. Be that blessing in the world -- a cheerful presence, a positive influence, a comforting friend.

When something happens that makes you angry, don't judge your anger harshly. At the same time, you mustn't think your anger justifies any action. Breathe and think before you act. Words cannot be unspoken. Whatever amends you make, some words and actions leave their mark. Allow the anger, and then give yourself some time to relax. From the relaxed posture, decide what, if anything, need be done. Your anger, like all emotions, is merely more information about what's going on in your world. It might inform your actions, but mustn't dictate them. Breathe and love yourself, and loving action will follow.

You can't always do the very right thing. Nine times out of ten there is no such "right" thing to do. You make your choices with your heart and head in concert. You do the best you can. Most of the time it works out fine. When it doesn't you correct your mistake, make amends. Act in the spirit of love and compassion. Breathe and be calm. That's always the best thing.

Everything is yours. This is a great blessing to be enjoyed with gratitude and pleasure. Say good morning to your beautiful planet and drink in her bounty. However, it is also a great responsibility. You are responsible for your surroundings, and those surroundings include the whole wide world--the universe, even. Be on the side of light and care and love, and nurture your world and all creatures within it.

Open up to the endless regard you have for others. You can love anyone, really. You are all just the same in so many ways, your differences are minor. Connect on the level of the soul, and all is well. You can find a connection with anyone you meet. There will be something to draw you together that is stronger than all that pulls you apart. Find space in your heart for the world of strangers and all will be your friends.

Because you are human, you are fallible. Because you are spirit, you are perfect. Both things are true. Relax and laugh and enjoy. Nothing need worry you. Things happen, you err, others hurt you. All is acceptable and all can be turned into a moment of love and spirit. Cheer up. All is well.
Tuesday, July 14, 2009
Allow the blessings of light to flow into your heart and soul. Wherever you are, the light is there also. Open up to it as you would pull aside a thin curtain to see the sunshine, and it will flow into you, and through you, into the world around you. Brighten the corner where you are.

The violence in your world is clearly an abomination. You cannot end violence with violence, however. All the great teachers knew this. Make your life a peaceful one. Make your words peaceful words. You are safe, you need no additional protection. Live in peace and peace is what you create. More and more of you are finding this message rings true in your hearts. Sing it out. Sing it out.
Sunday, July 12, 2009
You are beautiful. You are beautiful. You are beautiful. You are beautiful. We really want you to hear this message. No matter what anyone else says or does, no matter what false ideas you have been given about yourself, this is the truth: you are beautiful.

Change "I wish" to "I trust." When you say "I wish" you are putting your desired object or situation off in the stratosphere. When you trust, you create your desired situation with every breath. Begin by trusting that we are here for you, supporting and loving you in all you do. If you go out into the world with "I trust" you will meet every person and every challenge with confidence and ease. "Joyfully, confidently, and wholeheartedly, I now take my rightful place in the world." Say it out loud before walking out your door in the morning, every day, and your life will change. The world needs you and your own unique contribution. Trust yourself and trust your neighbor. And smile.
Friday, July 10, 2009
Open up your heart and mind to the person you are with. Whomever you are speakng with is worth your full attention. Give your companion the respect of accepting her point of view. Give your companion the respect of listening, not just waiting for your turn to speak again. See if you can put yourself in the experience of the other person. Connect at the deepest level. This is the path to salvation for this world of yours. When human beings accept themselves and each other, the world will change. Peace and plenty will ensue.
Thursday, July 9, 2009
Today is a wonderful day! Take that attitude with you throughout the day and all will be well. Whatever arises that might otherwise disturb your peace of mind will only make you smile with affectionate forbearance, as you would smile when a small child makes a small mistake in attempting something too large for her age and abilities. "Wow! You are trying something really hard! Good for you!" Love yourself as you would love that small child and all will be well.

When you are sad, you must be sad. Allow the feelings to surface and don’t be afraid of them. Sadness and grief and joy and laughter are all close cousins. All your emotions are human and real and perfectly acceptable. When you are feeling sad, just feel sad. Allow the words to come up that go with the grief or sadness. You will find much information there. And when you are calmer, you can act. No need to cover up or run away from the feelings. They are true and real. They are a part of your human existence. They connect you with every other human. Cry it out. With tears comes release.

Bless those around you with kindness and acceptance. They are the true mirrors of your soul’s health. When you are consciously with another person, only love arises. There can be no conflict when you are in your whole self, for there is room for every kind of person and every kind of experience. Acceptance is the key. No need to change anything. From this acceptance springs love and joy, and it is from this acceptance that change can grow. Let go of resistance. All that you are is informing every move you make, if you are not aware of this then you are unconscious and cannot live your life fully. Take my advice. Live to the fullest every minute of every hour of every day. Right now is where you live. Not in the past or future – they are but phantoms in the mind. Right now is where you live. You are the present creation of the present moment. Move through each moment as if it were the most precious moment of the universe, which it is, as it is all you have. Now and Now and Now and Now. That is your life, nothing else matters.

Touch is vital. Touch is healing, and necessary for human development. Find someone you can hug. Find good, healthy sex. Pat a dog or cat. Get a massage from a loving and ethical massage therapist. Connect with a handshake or a kiss. Surround yourself with all kinds of textures – soft, smooth, rough, coarse, fuzzy, prickly. Notice what feels good, and do it. Talk with your partner about these things. If your preferences are different you can work out a compromise. If you are a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle, babysitter or teacher, don’t be afraid of hugging the children in your care. Lay a hand on a child’s shoulder when she wants your attention. Look into her eyes. If you are the child of an aging parent, sit with him, pat his knee, always hug and kiss when greeting him or saying goodbye. It is true that when it is coercive, aggressive, the damage can be enormous, but don’t let that make you afraid. You can protect yourself and share information about what to do when someone is touching you in a way you don’t like. And your spreading of good, mutual, undemanding touch is a counterweight to the violent touch that is in the world.

Life is so beautiful that you need nothing else. Simply taking in the pleasures of the moment – a bird’s song, a child’s laughter, even a car you like the looks of – everything that brings pleasure is the beginning of joy, when noticed in the moment and without attachment, envy or yearning. Feel the air on your skin. Pay attention to your breath. Think of someone you love with all your heart, or a fond memory. And in that moment all is perfect. This is the path to happiness. You don’t have to do anything, find anything, be given anything, Happiness is within you waiting to be noticed. No one can take it away from you. Your experiences can get in the way – disconnect you – but no one and nothing can take it away because it is universal and eternal and divine. It is a soul experience not dependent on the physical world. Happiness is your birthright. More to the point, it is your soul’s birthright.

Surrender is the answer to everything. Always say to yourself: it is what it is. Now what? When you are struggling against your life, you are perpetuating the very thing you want to be rid of. When you surrender, life flows in grace and ease. Whatever is going on in your life at the moment becomes manageable. When you turn your attention to the good in your life, your whole body relaxes, decisions come easily, and the effect you have on others is calming and accepting. Your choices in any situation are resist, change, or accept. It's as simple as that. No need for drama.

It is really true that you can find work you love. This is the thing most people disbelieve. Start by loving the work you are doing, and the rest will follow. Whatever you are doing, when you do it with dignity, openness, integrity, and with your whole heart, becomes ennobled. All work is honorable.

Don’t worry! Please, don’t worry! What does it get you? Nothing but dis-ease. When you find yourself worrying, ask “is there something I can and want to do right now about this situation?” If the answer is no, let it go. If the answer is yes, then ask, “is it appropriate for me to take action? What action should I take? Is this really someone else’s privilege and not mine?” Only when the answer is truly - "yes, this is within my rights and within my control, and I know the appropriate action to take" – only then is it prudent to act. Only good things happen when you stop worrying. You relax your mind and body. Your system balances out. You open up to what is in front of you.

The love you show for yourself is in the way you take care of yourself, and the love you show for others is in the way you allow them their own space and freedom. Help if you are asked. Advise if you are asked. Everything else is simply ego. Do not judge. Do not even wish for others. When you find yourself wishing something would be different for someone else, just look to yourself. Is that something you want for yourself? Is that something you have and are grateful for? That’s as far as you need to go. Allow everyone else the dignity of his or her own path. There are plenty of people asking for help. Go there. Help them. Leave your friends and family alone to find their way.
Tuesday, June 30, 2009
Tell everyone you love how you feel about them. Tell them they are important to you and that the relationship is worth working on. Tell them you want to be closer, more intimate, more real. If you don’t want these things, the relationship will remain merely a surface one and not a soul connection. Connection is your natural state.

Your anxiety and anger trick you into believing that they are protecting you, when actually the opposite is true. When you are living in the state of anxiety or anger, your emotions are in charge one hundred percent. It is important to listen to your emotions. They are an important source of information about what’s going on for you. But it is equally important to listen to your intellect, and your body, and your higher self. When all these levels of experience inform your decisions, you are most likely to be moving in the right direction. Emotions are one version of the truth, but must be tempered with thought and gut sensation, as well as your spiritual core, in order to serve you well. Heart and head and body and spirit join in harmony for a peaceful and joyful, loving and productive life. Love all your experience. Love your whole self.
Sunday, June 28, 2009
Forget about everything but today. What is for your highest good today? A walk? A conversation? A good meal? A good cry? Whatever it is, receive it with joy and gratitude. Life moves on in spite of your best efforts to halt it. Relax and enjoy the ride. Life is good.
Saturday, June 27, 2009
Become a manifestation of your divine guidance. Stop thinking, just listen, and the guidance will flow. Just as you glide along with the current of a river, when you stop thinking, you glide along with the current of guidance. It is constant, and constantly true.
Friday, June 26, 2009
Everything is just fine. Nothing has to be different for you to be okay. Do you understand that? Nothing has to be different. Whatever you judge to be "wrong" is simply what's going on right now. Is there something you want to do about it? Wishing something were different isn't helping. Do something or don't do something, but accept that what is, is. Life is good when you live where you are and not where your imagination takes you.
Thursday, June 25, 2009
Give up striving. Be. We think that we have set you off on a course of loving and yet what you manifest is striving. The world is made for feeling divine love in a human form not for piling up money or bossing people around. And certainly not for murder, which is a human failing. And we mean murder in all its forms – war, pollution, psychic trauma --all are soul-murdering. Decide this day to be on the side of loving, not striving. You will be well-rewarded and your life will be comfortable, and happy, and full of grace. All else is illusion.
Wednesday, June 24, 2009
Laughing works. Singing and dancing. Open and honest conversation. Heartfelt gratitude. These things allow happiness to rise up in you. You won't find lasting happiness by seeking it from anything outside of yourself. Allow the grace of your own natural happiness to express itself in all your actions. Release the need for attention, control, power. Be a source of amusement, assistance, and solace for those around you. That is where your happiness lies. Connecting in a true, soulful way with others, with the earth, with the divine. Love yourself as you are and happiness is yours.
Tuesday, June 23, 2009
Believe in yourself as the one true expression of your own piece of universal love. Spread the love of which you are a manifestation whenever you speak or act. It is the divine in you and you are here to share with the world your particular expressions of divine love. Bless all whom you encounter with your smile and good will. The simplest act will brighten someone’s day.
Monday, June 22, 2009
Today is a wonderful day to begin letting go of all your expectations of life. Just relax and go with the prevailing moment. You are not responsible for the whole world, only your part in it. What are you doing for yourself, for someone else, or for the planet in this one moment, which is all you ever have? Take each moment as a precious gift and your life will be full and hearty.
Sunday, June 21, 2009
Whatever you are thinking is in someone else’s mind or heart is probably wrong ... incomplete at best. Let go of wondering. Speak up. Ask them. You don’t know, and that’s perfectly okay. Act from love, with authenticity, and your relationships will flow in grace.
Saturday, June 20, 2009
Bless the ones around you who are suffering. It is not for you to say they should not suffer, but you can help lighten the load and not add to the suffering. Do not judge. It is not for you to decide where that person should or should not be or what he should or should not do. Send your highest wishes for peace to awaken in him, and find your own peace in the moment.
Friday, June 19, 2009
If you strive for understanding you are missing the boat. Acceptance is the key. Acceptance and forgiveness. Understanding is useful in some situations, but is not the answer. Once you understand, then what? Begin with acceptance and the rest is easy. “Oh, that happened. Now what?” This is how you make your way through the life you have chosen--making each moment an opportunity for peace and love and light. Choosing light over darkness, peace over chaos and love over fear.
Thursday, June 18, 2009
Forget about the things that worry you. Let them go. They can not trouble you unless you let them. You are able to release and forgive the past, and move forward with true peace and humility and love. Be grateful and content. Be open to the world around you. Be the one who brings light into any room that you enter. That is your gift from us. Be especially careful of the young ones and the old ones. The young ones are most impressionable and the old ones are most frail. All creatures of the unverse deserve your love and compassion. All of them, without exception.
Wednesday, June 17, 2009
You must remember who you are. You are not what you think you are. You are a beautiful son or daughter of the universe. Your light is the light of all that is. You are the one who will bring that light into the world of humanity. Take care of yourself and then you will be able to take care of the earth and her inhabitants, human and otherwise. Bless those around you with your eternal peace and light. Bless yourself with the acceptance of these gifts. Let no one ever tell you that you are not eternal. You are. You are.
