The River of life

Do you flow with the river of life, dear one?  Or has a traumatic event beached you on a sandbar, taken you out of the main channel?

You and all living creatures are meant to move with the current, allowing the pull of the stream to float you effortlessly through many landscapes, the rapids, deep pools, the shallows, the floods, the white water…the many moods of the river.

If you have run aground and your life is on hold or feels like it is moving on without your full presence, please find someone who can help you gradually attune yourself to the flow, to rejoin and reclaim your life.

When you reclaim your life and heal, you send ripples health and wholeness through the web of all things, and all are uplifted by your intention and courage.

When you reclaim your life, you reclaim your power, your sparkle, your inner fire, for you were meant to live fully – feeling your feelings, fully embodied, breathing deeply of the life you desire, one with the river.

Your spectrum of awareness

Many of you are sensitive to the spirits and energy that support, surround and permeate this world of mass, volume and matter. You have a wider spectrum of awareness than those who call you crazy, those who fear your power, those who cut you down to size, those who scoff at your light.

Do not allow others to talk you out of what you know to be true!

You who can feel and hear and know the presence of spirits; do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by it all? Learn to set boundaries, to invite the compassionate helping spirits on your terms, on your schedule, and send those who drain you away.

Your voice is powerful! Use it to keep yourself clear and to connect with your inner strength and power.

Your roots connect you to the Earth. Draw up her energy to empower your body. You sensitive ones, especially will be most effective when you are grounded in the earth as well as connected to the heavens.

Focus your attention and set your intention to work in harmony with the spirit world.

You sensitive souls are needed here with your wider range of awareness to interpret higher vibrations, to channel healing energy and beautiful works of art, to help us all live in harmony and wisdom. Your gifts are a blessing to this earth. Know it is so.

Are you at a crossroads?

Do you find yourself at a time of choice in your life? Will you continue as you are, or will you explore a new path?

Does the familiar path no longer feed your soul? Do you feel energized and inspired by the possibilities of the new?

You are beings of free will. When you choose, choose with your whole self. Line up your heart, mind and spirit with your new direction. Don’t look back.

Leave the past and regret behind so you can fully inhabit and experience the new landscape you’ve chosen. Give yourself time to attune yourself to your new reality and  immerse yourself in it.

Will you take the first step in the life affirming, soul satisfying, self loving direction your heart has chosen, leaving all doubt, fear and timidity behind? Will you choose a new path?

For new grandparents

Grandparents know the amazing expansion of the heart while holding their precious new loved one. They hold this tiny new family member close, matching the rhythms of their heart and breath, breathing in and basking in the glow of the amazing spirit in their arms.

Newborn

Grandparents remember that this little one has chosen to make an appearance, to grace the family with their precious, priceless presence.

Grandparents are given the change to accept without judgment, bathing the child in the heart energy of pure love and light, and feeling in return the grace of pure spirit, knowing the child is perfect as they are.

Grandparents are given the most sacred chance in life, to love unconditionally, to learn how to love in a new way than ever before at a deeper level than they have ever known. Grandparents are given the chance to expand into more and become more, through love.

Your grandchild is a tiny piece of all that is, a message from the universe: All is well, All is love, Life is good. You and the earth herself are blessed by this greatly beloved new spirit.

Contentment

Do you fear that you will lose your edge, become complaisant, or a lie-about if you allow yourself to be content? (Those of you who push, jockey, and fight for position in life will need to cover your ears and eyes for a moment.)

Contentment is peace and peace is your true nature. Contentment is a feeling that all is right with the world. “All is right within me. I want for nothing in this moment. I feel good in this moment. All is well in this moment.”

Yet, in the next moment, you may find yourself remembering a want, a need, trying to solve a problem, or worrying about what is next for you.

Can you hold the memory of the feeling of contentment in your heart? Then you can bring it back to mind when you want to feel peace again.

You might remember the feeling of contentment you had while sitting on your porch watching golden patches of sunlight light up the trees in late evening.

You might remember the feeling of contentment while walking in the woods on a cool summer morning listening to birdsong.

You might remember the feeling of contentment you had when holding your new grandchild in your arms.

Savor these moments of your precious life and inhabit them fully, for they are your life. Remember the sights, smells, feelings and emotions of contentment and bring them to your awareness.  Pay attention, absorb the feelings into your heart and breathe in the peace you feel.

And now I ask on behalf of the trees and all living things: Can you be content with the earth and her living creatures, her rooted beings, her stones and bedrock without bulldozing the sacred trees, scraping away the precious soil, paving over the prairies, felling the forests, scarring the landscape with ugly buildings, making war on those you do not understand?

Dear ones, these acts  reflect discontent, a pulling away from your center.  They are not you at your best, not a reflection of your higher self.  Find gentler ways to live and interact with this earth and her people, and we will all thrive.

Those who find contentment and peace within will live in harmony with nature, with the earth, with others, and with all that is.

We belong together

Dear ones, you are here on planet Earth inhabiting your magnificent body, taking up the space you need, partaking of the Earth’s resources – drinking, bathing washing in her precious water, eating foods that originate in the earth…

You are using her stones to pave your roads, her wood to build your homes; her gems, minerals and metals to beautify your lives and support your roads, bridges, and buildings.

All living creatures depend on Mother Earth’s growing things to feed and clothe and nourish and shade and shelter and provide a soul satisfying life.

We have grown up together, the earth and all her creatures. We depend on each other.

We need each other to sustain our beautiful lives here on this sweet green earth where there is space to be who you are; space to live.

Let us care for one another, human, animal, plant, insect, bird, micro-organism, water, air, soil, so all can thrive!

Upwelling of spirit

There comes a time when you must acknowledge that you need the help of a higher power; that you need the wisdom and compassion of all that is to heal yourself, to solve your problems in surprising and miraculous ways with soul satisfying results.

Dear ones, you cannot do it all by yourselves! Give up the illusion of control and allow the wisdom, grace, and peace of spirit to work in your lives.

You will have access to all wisdom, all possibilities, all combinations of factors, all inspirations and ideas. It is having the entire universe at your call.

Let go of your grasp on that which is holding you back! Let go of your narrow picture of how things will happen.

Allow yourselves to be filled with fresh inspiration and energy. Allow the amazing upwelling of spirit in your precious lives!
