“World Peace” begins in your heart and mind. It begins with you! Yes, that does sound pretty trite, doesn’t it? But you will see and feel that it is true.
When you find true peace and healing in your heart, when you’ve cleared away the clouds that darken your life and find forgiveness for those who’ve hurt you, you become the center of a ripple effect. The web of life of which you are an integral part begins to heal as well.

It is so much easier to point the finger at others, especially those awful people you see on the news every day, ranting and raving or those groups that set your teeth on edge. It is easier to blame than confront the hurt, fear, anger, abuse, depression, and sadness of your own life and family and its effects on you.
Maybe you can’t go over to the Middle East and make those people see reason and stop the violence, but you can work to heal the warring in your own family. You can speak up to heal injustice in groups you belong to. You can consult your heart and do what you know needs to be done to heal the web of your own life.
The healing begins within when you decide you want to be whole again. Yes, it is difficult! But what is the alternative?
You cannot escape your energy! You must transform it!
Your transformed energy ripples outward beyond your physical boundaries and all who are connected to you will feel and respond to your new vibrations. It will inspire some to seek their own healing. Some others may not be pleased, but that’s OK, for it only takes a small percentage of people to transform their energy and create a large change in the world!
As more people find true healing, the renewed web of life transforms our Earth into a safer, more peaceful place for all living creatures to make their home.
Do you have a moment to watch as sun-struck amber and golden leaves dance, spiral and flutter to to the Earth in their final act of letting go?
There is peace, beauty and grace in letting go.
Let the trees teach you the gentle yet powerful art of releasing. For them, it is time to let go of all those dying leaves that have served their purpose. The trees time of letting go may inspire you to release your grasp on the worn out thoughts, the beliefs and patterns in your life that are stale, no longer helpful, that keep you stuck in the past.
After releasing comes a time to rest as you gather your strength once again. Then when you are rested and feeling strong and conditions are favorable for growth, it is time to start over again.
For the trees in spring the angle of the light, the temperature and rainfall support and nurture tender new growth as millions of new leaves unroll to the bright sunlight.
When you let go of the old, you make room for fresh new life and insights to light you up and move you forward.
Let yourself be clear and open to the new life that wants to flow through you when the timing is right!
Let the truth of your underlying spirit, the structure of your soul be exposed to the light of love as you gather up nourishment and strength during your long winter’s nap.
All light workers and healers are needed here and now on this planet in this time and place to create a web of support and loving energy.
You are needed to hold the vibrations you have achieved – strong and straight and true. You are needed to maintain your course, stay on your path, to shine your light, for you are not alone. Others will be inspired and uplifted by your light. Then they too will be able to shine their lights and the web of all things will be strengthened.

It is yours to own your light, to shine in the darkness and become an example of what is possible. You set the tone, and strengthen the web of all things.
You will plant seeds of healing and hope with your example. It is not yours to force the seeds to grow. It is not yours to do the heavy lifting. It is up to each individual to grow and blossom at their own pace, in their own time.
You help this process, my dears, simply being the light, lovingly witnessing the transformation of others into all they can be.
Do not be discouraged, for the vibrations, the love, the light you bring to this planet make a difference for the better whether you know it or not. Do not underestimate your power to create positive change! You are needed here and now!
Do you ever ask yourself “Where do I begin and end? Where is my center? Where are my outer limits?”
Dear ones, your deepest being knows no limits. You may feel that you cease to extend past the end of your nose, yet those of you with sensitive antennae will know and feel and sense the energies and emotions of the larger world.

You can filter and set boundaries on what you sense to keep yourself focused on your own life. At times, when you are feeling good you may allow yourself to dissolve into energy particles and merge with all that is as you meditate.
The answers to your questions will change when you master this process. Your perspective will change. Your life will be transformed as you discover you are one with all things.
In this way you find that you are more powerful than you know, that the universe is made up of pure love, that you are eternal, that you are so much more than your body, that the universe has your back.
What you are presented with emotionally in this life can be healed in this life. To do this, you must engage all your awareness, your will, heart and power, and face those patterns and thoughts with courage and trust in your resilience.
You who truly seek healing, transformation and wholeness begin on an amazing hero’s journey of discovery. You will confront pain, you will confront your deepest fears. They are like dragons and you are the brave dragon slayer.
With courage and attention, you will find that the dragons are simply illusions – all puffed up but with no real substance behind them – like inflatable outdoor holiday figures when the power is cut off. They deflate and lay useless on the ground.
Cut off the power supply to heal emotional dragons by paying attention with courage, observing with compassion, staying with it, persevering for your health and transformation.
Betty’s note: Dear ones, please know that there is help available for your journey of healing and transformation. When you need it, ask for help and support from a therapist, energy healer, or shamanic healer who feels right for you.
