Dear ones, you will always have another chance to live by the truth of your heart mind and spirit. Have you made grave mistakes? Have you hurt others? Have you done things you regret? Have you wasted the precious moments of your life?
Grandmother Cottonwood, early June
Begin this moment to create thoughts, feelings, and take action in the direction you wish to move. Begin to define who you really are deep at the core of you. Let the person you show to the world match the true you, the inner you. In this way you define yourself as a person of integrity.
You who wish to make changes may still at times cause hurt, still do and say things you regret. My dear, you are not a carving of stone, unmoving and unmovable. You are a fluid being of free well. With time, attention, and commitment you can shift yourself in the direction of love and wholeness and inner peace. Have patience with yourself!
Believe in yourself! You can do this. Make these changes for yourself, the health of your spirit, and the blessing of this planet!
Your roots will hold fast during the storms of life when the wind rises and the rains pour down. Your roots hold fast when you fear for your life or health.
When the thunder cracks and lighting blinds you, your deep roots will keep you upright. Bending with the wind will keep you from breaking. You will weather this storm and the next and the next for there will be more. It is the nature of life.
Your deep roots allow you to stretch to your full height and reach, to feel and know your belonging to this earth in this place and time without fear of toppling over, breaking, or blowing away.
Our roots, the roots of all growing things interweave and stitch together the soil, the stuff of life that feeds your planet and makes your existence possible. From the deepest taproot to the tiniest microscopic thread searching for water, roots hold your world in place with love.
My love knows no boundaries. It does not know time, space, distance, or dimension. It is eternal and indestructible.

Perhaps you doubt this truth, perhaps you do not remember the serenity, the calm, the dropping away of obstacles worry and dread that come when you are tuned to the frequency of love.
My dears, you have known this frequency, this feeling before and you will know it again. It is the foundation of all that is. You have known it before, as an infant or child, or perhaps between lifetimes. It is an integral part of you and cannot be separated from you.
It is your birthright to remember and know and feel this love. Allow yourself to reach beyond the clutter of your mind to the ocean of love at the heart of all that is.
Can you stop talking for a time each day and sink deeper into your mind to a place that does not know speech?

Can you stop thinking, obsessing, ruminating, judging, and analyzing for a time each day and allow yourself to rest from the constant barrage of thoughts? A moment of peace?
Can you observe the flood tide of words and thoughts in your mind floating downstream and out of your awareness? Can you put down your shiny device, turn off the TV, the radio, the computer, the little object that beeps, blinks, and demands your attention? It may seem impossible!
Can you make some room in your mind for silence? Can you clear a space – your own private, peaceful refuge within your mind?
Can you slow down your pace just for a few minutes each day and touch the central core of you, the infinite, the loving, the deep, the expanded heart and soul of you? Can you become intimate with your true self?
This is only a test! Will you trust yourself, your inner voice, your true guidance when others around you choose differently? If not, more chances to follow your guidance will be provided.

This is only a test: Will you love, honor, cherish and accept yourself body & soul when others ask you to violate your ideals? If not, more chances and opportunities to be a person of integrity will be given to you.
This is only a test: Will you stay aligned with your light when circumstances seem to be pulling you into the shadows with magnetic force? If not this time, all-that-is will provide another chance, and another and another to live up to your light.
There is much to learn, fellow earth dwellers. Allow yourselves the gifts of patience, commitment, courage and willingness to take yet another chance on yourself. Learn new ways of being thinking and doing that will light up your life in breathtaking ways.
This is only a test! You are dearly loved and you can never be separated from that love which some call all-that-is. All-that-is is love. All-that-is is patience. All-that-is believes in you. All-that-is will never give up on you.
Cut through the clutter and chatter; penetrate the clouds and debris of your life, physical, mental, emotional for your health and well-being.

Just as your home and surroundings benefit from a clearing and cleaning, so does your energy atmosphere. It might seem impossible to let go of stale old emotions left over from the past, holding you prisoner. You can release them and move forward with new lightness of being.
To do this takes courage self compassion and commitment to your well-being. Get help if you need it as you access, feel and give compassionate attention to the feelings that arise in you.
These feelings are energy. You will feel them in your body, feel them moving. Some of them may feel overpowering, like a thunder storm rolling through. Do not fear, dear ones every storm passes in time. Gather your courage and stay with it. Persevere.
Stay with the emotion, become a compassionate observer as it rises, floods, crests and dissipates. Feel its presence in your body without judgment. Allow it to be as it is and in time it will shift and change and lighten as you cease resistance. After a storm all the earth is cleansed, refreshed and ready to grow!
Know this! You are strong, powerful, capable. You can weather any storm. You can heal.
Do you do what you say you will do?
Only make promises to yourself that you fully intend to honor. Let go of all other inklings, half baked ideas, half-hearted plans.

Focus on satisfying your soul by keeping those promises that light you up. What have you been promising yourself for years? Do you still feel excited and energized by it?
Time is limited. Step forward! Take action to begin your whole hearted, soul satisfying, energizing dreams and goals. Tie up loose ends and get cracking!
