Inner/Outer

Dear ones, it is an immutable law of the universe – Your inner world – what you feel inside, the emotions you allow into your consciousness and those you suppress are all reflected in your outer world. Look to the people in your life, the environment, the weather, your neighborhood, your job…everything – as mirrors to the inner you.

Do you dislike what you see around you? Do you want a change? Go inward first. Are you surrounded by unpleasant people? Go inside and befriend the unpleasant part of you – or shall I say the part you think is unpleasant. The part you’ve hidden under layers of “nice”.

Cave entrance

Shine the light of love on that rejected part of you. You cannot find true peace unless you embrace your entire being – the spectrum of emotions, the light and shadow. You are whole and complete only when you embrace the parts of you that you worry are not nice, ugly, frustrated, without courage, weak, hurt, sad….

Make friends, true, deep and abiding friends with yourself. Treat yourself as you would a dear beloved  companion. Do this by witnessing your flaws, your full spectrum of feelings, shining the light of love in the dark places, accepting them as part of you.

Your survival no longer depends on your being “good” or “nice” or “perfect”. It depends on your being real.

You can feel better!

Over the years of your life, energy, inspirations, emotions, feelings, ideas, thoughts, fears that you block and deny and push down have nowhere else to go but to stay in your energy field. The energies that makes up these thoughts get stuck, build up and accumulate like heavy storm clouds.

Storm clouds and prairie grasses

If you are sensitive, you feel the extra weight, the heaviness. Does it hold you back, press you down like a weighted blanket, a back pack full of stones?

It is not your work to carry this weight. You can clear and release it with patience, courage, commitment.

Foreign substances in your body will not solve the problem, will not clear the clouds, but only allow you to pretend for a short time.

Tap into your emotions, the buried ones, the old and stale ones, the emotions that flash through when something triggers you. You must focus and feel the emotions within you. You do not have to react to them. Simply feeling and acknowledging is enough.

The emotion is not you, it is energy that is meant to flow through you.  I am telling you, you can feel better!

Find help if the emotions feel overwhelming. It is like learning to walk, learning to read. This is a life-saving skill you can learn, and it will set you free.

No boundaries

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.

You can weather any storm

Cut through the clutter and chatter; penetrate the clouds and debris of your life, physical, mental, emotional for your health and well-being.

Sunshine through thick clouds

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.

You can feel better!

You were not plunked down here in this time and place to feel bad or to suffer.

Do these habits of mind and feeling persist in you? Do you hold on to them like a talisman? You can begin to heal and release those thoughts that bring you down. You can let go of your death grip on the image of yourself as powerless and depressed.

Can you learn little by little to tolerate the higher frequencies of feeling better, feeling good, of laughter, fun and joy? They may seem exhausting foreign, forbidden, but they are your gifts, freely bestowed by virtue of your life here on this earth.

Do not try to move mountains, start small with baby steps.  Begin each day by intending to feel good in small ways.

When the frequencies of fear and dread overwhelm you, do what you might thing is counter-intuitive and allow them to be, feel and experience them in your body. Breathe. Name them. You simply acknowledge with love, and observe without judgment.

In this way you cease resisting the negative and that removes its power supply. The energy will shift and change allowing room for new feelings to fill you. You get to choose your new feelings! Ask daily to feel good.

Focus on those feelings, thoughts, and people that lift you up.

Energy vampires

Sometimes you feel you must go it alone when the drama, the unhappiness of others seems to drag you down and pull you into their vortex of fear and negativity. They drain your energy and leave you like an empty shell. Allowing this, my dears, is not “love” or caring.

Your central task is to maintain your energy, know your power and align with the source of your creation. The energy vampires will not like this!

It is not your job to make them happy, to rescue them from unhappiness, to smooth things over and put on a happy face for them.

You were set firmly down in this time space reality to shine your light fully, to be truly yourself. Anyone that diminishes you is not your friend!

As you gain clarity, focus and empowerment, those of like mind and heart will be drawn to you like a magnet. And your life will thrive!

Focus on your purpose

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?

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.
