Don't say "that never works." Say instead "so far that hasn't worked." Don't say "I can't." Say "so far, I haven't figured out how to." The past is gone, the future is mutable. There are many, many possibilities. Look at right now, and choose what's good, cheerful, funny, relaxing, energizing, forward-looking, encouraging, supportive of growth. Life is good.

Allow the cheerfulness in. It's all around you. If you don't see it in the face of the one closest to you, send up a prayer for that child of god and look beyond. You will find a cheerful face, a curious mind. Or, if not in another person, you will find it in a bird's song, dog's trot, a flower's bloom. Someone is wishing you well, always.

Remember your loved ones who have transcended this earthly realm. They are with you still. Your energy is limitless, unfettereed by time or space. So when you are in spirit, you are able to be everywhere. When you are in spirit you are able to appear to your earth-bound friends as your old self, and you are able to work on your journey over here. Even after you have reincarnated, you are able still to come to your loved ones when your support as your old self would be a comfort and encouragement. The piece of you having the earthly experience is circumscribed, the totality of you is not.

Appreciate everything. Appreciate the life you have created. Appreciate your delicious breakfast. Appreciate your friends and family. Appreciate your troubles for helping you grow. Appreciate your emotions for informing you. Appreciate your own hard work and good effort. Appreciate the birds in the trees and the stars in the sky. Appreciate the creativity of your fellow humans. Appreciate art, music, dancce, drama. Appreciate your health and your aches and pains. Appreciate humor wherever you find it. Appreciate sun and rain. Appreciate your belongings. Appreciate everything.

Simply breathe. At this time of year, many of you humans work yourselves up into a lather over old expectations, none of which need mean anything to you. Simply breathe, enjoy the day. Do what you choose to do, and release concern for all else. Share your beaming smile and your relaxed energy with others. That is the best gift you can give them in the holiday season.

Take responsibility for your thoughts and actions and allow others their own part. Do not try to control others, even if your intention is benign. Allow each person her own power, his own responsibility, her own freedom to choose, his own path. Be a model of right action and loving response, encourage others, love and accept others.

Please do not despair when looking at world events. Simply do what is in your heart and will and power to do on the side of light and love. Whatever is happening, you can always send up your good, loving, healing energy into the universe. Bless those who resist blessings. Accept their resistance--it is where they are right now. But railing against them does no one any good. Bless them all the more. Hold in your mind the vision of a world of peace and well-being.

Please note the difference between acceptance and resignation. Many times you say "I don't care" when really what you mean is "I care very much, but it looks like it's not getting me anywhere, so I give up." That is resistance falling into resignation. Resignation keeps you depressed and unhappy. True acceptance is relaxing and liberating and uplifting. What is, is. It's as simple as that. Why make that a problem? Just look at your situation, and choose where to focus your thoughts and energy. Choose life, love, compassion, appreciation.

Everyone is open to you, if you allow them. Everyone accepts you, if you allow them. Well, maybe not, but really it doesn't matter. Everyone, in their heart of hearts is open. When they are not showing you acceptance, they are reacting from their own anxiety. Let it be. Continue loving them. You can do it.

Allow yourself to risk being criticized, being mocked even. When you show your true self, when you put your work out into the world, there is always the possibility of someone not liking it, making fun of it, condemning it. That's okay. As long as you stay in your heart, and gather around you people who love you, you are completely protected. Other people can have their opinions without impinging on your good energy. Love yourself. Love your work. Share your particular genius with others. That is what life on earth is all about.

For your connection with us to remain strong, all it takes is a few moments. Whenever you think of it, close your eyes, breathe deeply, and ask "who's there?" We will answer you! Sometimes when you feel the connection, your primary emotional response will be of sadness -- sadness and regret for the years you have not been open to us. Please let that feeling pass. Now is what is important. Now you are listening. That's what matters. Soon, whenever you connect with us, you will feel a calm and peaceful joy, a natural relaxation and satisfaction. Soon, merely closing your eyes and consciously breathing will bring a smile to your lips and your heart. And with that smile, with your heart open and relaxed, your beautiful self will shine out for all the world to see. You are beautiful.

Because of your own innate abilities and your plan for this lifetime, you have something special to offer the world. Please do not be afraid. Please know that you are protected. Follow your intuition and your heart. Be your true self as deeply and fully as you can manage. We are with you always.

Take a blanket and lay it on the ground, somewhere far from the city. Lie down and watch the sky. Imagine the vastness of your earth's atmosphere, then imagine moving beyond your atmosphere to the near planets. Then keep going to the far reaches of your solar system, and on to the edge of your galaxy. Keep going. Travel through time and space to a place where all is well, all is known. Feel yourself as pure energy, just floating in space. Now begin to sense around you other beings of pure energy. Smile. You are home.

The artists among you have chosen to live their art and share it with the world. You are also an artist, even if your work is not on stage, or hanging in a gallery, or projected onto a screen. Your work is your art. And, even more profoundly, your life is your art. Treat it with the respect and appreciation that you give to the art of music, fiction, film, painting, drama, sculpture. When you give your work and your life the respect and love it deserves, it nourishes your soul and enriches the lives of all whom you encounter.

Let yourself enjoy fully the experiences of your day. Really tune in. Love the place where you are, the people around you. Love yourself. Feel the air, notice the sounds and sights and smells. The earth is a wonderful place to spend your time. Lap it up.

When you are here with us in spirit, between adventures on earth, you have the ability to see your journey as a whole. You have the ability to understand where you are headed, and to make choices about the next lifetime. All is known to you at a deep, deep energetic level. You make your decisions about your next earth life and you enlist the help of your soul circle. You choose your companions for the optimal learning experience. Look around you today. Who is in your life? Each person made a pact with you, when you were both in spirit, to play a particular role in your journey. Be grateful, even when the lesson seems hard. Appreciate that, even if it doesn't seem so, the lesson is hard for that person, as well, for you are also a teacher for him. Taking this attitude will allow you to release judgment and have compassion for all who walk the earth with you.

Always allow yourself a peaceful confidence. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, you can be calm and self-assured. Even trying something brand new, you can know that you will approach it with openness and an ability to learn. No need for stress or anxiety. All is well.

Whenever you are lonely, simply put your attention on your present moment. Release what you believe is missing, and notice what is there. Joy is there, contentment. Humor is there. And always, always, always we are there -- we who love you and protect you. We who cherish you and guide you. Open your heart to us and you will never be lonely.

Please know that when you go through life with grace ad appreciation, you will find happiness and contentment. Even when things don't go your way, you will be peaceful if you simply accept the ups and downs, resist judging others, and laugh at your own missteps. You will add a welcome energy to any gathering, any situation, when peaceful acceptance is your mien.

One way to connect with us is through automatic writing. Somehow the pen in your hand allows you to lower the barrier between us. Try it. Put on some soothing music or some ecstatic drumming, sit quietly with pen in hand, and just relax. Your hand will begin to move and, if you request it, begin to form words. Kathie has found, though, that doing it through the computer works best for her. And she can read our words after she's done, which is rarely true when she's writing by hand. We are always available to you. The trick is in finding a way to listen that works for you. Blessings.

More often than not, what happens will please you. More often than not, you can find the humor in any situation. For the times when the events displease or distress you, always remember we are with you and that you have within you the resources to cope with any happenstance. Trust yourself and trust your guides and trust your world. You are safe.
