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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
