My dear ones, this is a time of choice.
Do you choose to live in fear? Do you choose to do what is healthy for mother earth and all life? Do you choose to make those minute adjustments to your life that will result in better health, happier relationships, feelings of peace and well-being?
Crow in late winter
Set your intention each day. Start small and build on that.
You are the master of your life. Own it!
You choose and command the energies that move through you.
Get comfortable with that!
Your intentions and words have power beyond your ability to fathom. They interact with the web of all things, weaving and creating your future. Every thought, word, decision, choice and belief emanates from you and helps to shape the web of all things.
Align them with your dreams to shape your amazing future.
You have more power than you have been led to believe!
Do you get pulled like a magnet to the agenda and needs of others or do you set your own course and steer according to your stars?
Cardinal in winter
You may think it is kind and loving to help, to support, to sacrifice your goals and dreams, your unrepeatable moments for the sake of others. But my dear, when you focus so fully on others, you are not living in the magnificent current of power and light that is your birthright, your highest good. Those you sacrifice for will never know their true power or inner strength.
My dear ones, decide what you can do for your family, friends, loved ones without resentment, without giving up your dreams, without becoming a shadow of who you are meant to be.
Yes, there may be times you must focus on helping others when they are in crisis, but those times must not eclipse and overwhelm your commitment to yourself.
Focus on your dearest dreams, goals and inspirations first. Do for others in ways that strengthen you and them. If you feel depleted, you are giving too much.
The source of all being has plans for you that coincide with your deepest desires. Let your divine purpose be the central focus of your life.
Will you rest and dream with me this winter?
Rest for a little while. Let go of all you normally hold tight to, letting go of control for a time. Allow your beautiful selves the luxury and freedom of nothing to worry about, nothing to push for, nothing to do, nothing to think. Simply be with no agenda for a time.
Dream with me. Remember the earth memories deep in our cells from the ancestors- the primeval forests, vast herds of grazing animals, clear flowing waters, wide stretches of unbroken prairie, lakes filled with fish of all descriptions, towering forests standing thousands of years, our roots gripping the cool rich earth, reaching toward the sun, anchoring us to this place.
Within all creatures reside the deep primal memories of nature in balance, of peace and harmony.
My beloved, do not waste your precious moments worrying about the future or feeling bad about the past. Live in your body, in the here and now.
Each breath you take is an opportunity to choose a new way of thinking, a better feeling, a more compassionate outlook, and to drop those tired beliefs that keep you stuck.
You have power to create your life, to change as a caterpillar changes into a butterfly, and heal those aspects of your life that aren’t working. Do not blame yourself or others. Love yourself, be kind to yourself and support yourself fully in what you want to accomplish, the person you intend to become.
You create the blueprint of your future life through your thoughts and feelings, expectations and beliefs. You grow into the dimensions, the possibilities you envision for yourself. You create your future from this present moment.
Do you dream a small dream for yourself? I ask you to begin to allow yourself to expand your dream. Find clarity within your mind. Expect the best!
GCW speaks of getting older
Surrender, my dears to life. Life moves you downstream on the river finally to merge with all that is.
Perhaps you’ve awakened from sleep and seen a gray haired man or woman looking out of the mirror at you, or lines on your face that you can no longer pretend away. Perhaps the dreams you’ve held dear since childhood no longer feed your soul. Can you find the gold in this mud?
Can you let go of those dreams, desires, beliefs that once seemed so vital and precious but are now hollow and stale, outdated and obsolete?
Can you conjure a new dream for this time of your life? What desires still hold your heart’s attention?
What new dreams will carry you to the end of this life and beyond – with eager anticipation, passion and delight – so that as your body ages your life’s true work comes into focus, your spirit feels joy, your heart sings? For your heart can sing now in older years, without embarrassment, with true wisdom and beauty, the song of your soul.
Embrace yourself as you are with a whole heart. Live from the inside (soulside) out for the outside of you is just a temporary wrapper for the spirit.
