HOKUM?

The warmth of the sun suddenly breaking through the clouds of a winters day can warm some more than just physically, it is as if it also brings hope and reassurance that bleak circumstances will not always remain, it is taken as a sign from above. It is said the appearance of a rainbow signifies God’s promise to never again send flood, again, reassurance that bleak times are forever passed. Why is it that humans seek and have need of these assurances? Humans, of this time, are far evolved from primitive man, they have no real need of superstition, no need to fear angry gods, yet, they still seek some form of hope – some promise. Many, still, choose to rely on the physical realm to offer signs, just as their ancestors would have. So, even though evolved, some form of genetic memory filters through to the modern psyche. Surprisingly this is all to the good. Modern and ancient humans share common links no matter the distance between. Humans of old could only relate to their immediate surroundings and it is just so with humans of the now. The natural world around you will gladly provide signs of hope, if, viewed with an open heart and mind, for, your immediate realm is at the same time the entire universe, the entirety of creation and you are also of this. It and you are one and it will communicate with you if you heed it. There is no need to feel foolish or unevolved for choosing to accept what some would see as hokum. The universe turns and shifts for each and every one of you, in your way. It speaks your particular and individual language, it uses your particular and individual signs, it has no need of manmade artifacts. So, should you choose to feel more than warmth when your sun breaks through, should you choose to see meaning behind your rainbow, do so, knowing your universe communicates directly to you, using language only you understand. Look, listen and feel the warmth of hope through any sign you choose beloved children, whether it be considered sacred legend or hokum, choose and heed.

RADIANCE

love-580248_1280The light of grace shines on everyone’s life, not always discernable to all but it shines nonetheless. Often glimpses are only noticed in extreme times, times when the pendulum of fate has swung dramatically in either direction. It is understandable that this occurs only then. Heightened emotions, negative or positive, can cause some to seek an answer as to why these events have occurred. So much of life is lived at a steady, mundane level of existence that exceptional circumstances push some to seek the catalyst or reason for their change of situation, even those with no underlying belief or religion, eventually, look for something outside themselves to explain extreme fortune. It can be surprisingly hard for those stoutly opposed to formal religion, or any form of structured belief system, to begin to find answers, for, they do not believe anything other than themselves exists. What then do they thank or blame? Do they merely shrug and accept that this is how life is – up, down and up again or that only they have the power to control anything and with no belief in a guiding, protecting energy on whom or what do they call for reassurance? When this impasse has been reached often enough, with no sure conclusions drawn, many begin to turn their thoughts, if only mildly, they begin to soften their stance of rigid disbelief, most, although now less disapproving, would still not consider organized religion and some would even find the freer, new age doctrines a leap too far, in what then would they choose to believe? Well, our advice is to not try and believe. Belief, in itself, has very little value, for, belief while thought and held in the mind, is not always held in the heart and is therefore just a thought, whereas faith, even if directionless and unfocussed, resides eternally in the heart of every single human, for some this faith lies dormant there until the pendulum of fate swings wildly enough to reveal an ever present radiance, radiance that calls to the faith buried in the heart, for, it is also light and will easily blend with the light of grace and so, we ask, beloved children, that you lay aside belief, for, it is only thought, and in so doing, release the faith you FEEL to join with the light of grace and its’ eternal radiance.

REMEMBER

world-1582347_1920As surely as the world turns and night follows day, you are loved, no-one is forsaken, no-one is an exception. This can be hard to discern when life has, seemingly, sent you trial after trial with hardly room in between to breathe but you do breathe, all throughout, no matter your circumstance, no matter what dilemma you face at any given moment. It is in the breath that your essence bides, that heaving, sobbing breath of heartache is still breath,that throaty guffaw of laughter is still breath. All of it is breath, all breath means life and for each and every one of you life means love. You know you came from love, you know you are love at the core but now KNOW that you receive love, always, in every form available, for, love is not only present in peaceful experiences, it can be present in the experiences of disruption and chaos. The teachings obtained from life on the Earth plane cannot forever be taught by the one method, each individual needs tailor made direction and each individual needs, at times, to be challenged. While some of these challenges can be immense, faith needs to be held that they are not punishments sent from above but rather circumstances created by your own divine intelligence to bring you back to the truth that love is all there truly is. We know, that for those of you in dire straits, these words can seem empty and cruel and your Earth bound character may react with anger and resentment but we also know that on a soul level some tiny bit of these words will resonate with you, for, no matter your circumstances of the now, your true self knows the truth of this. Breathe, beloved children, let your body breathe through all that is happening be it war or peace and allow your soul to remember that as surely as night follows day love is all there truly is.

WHISPER

climb-1807474_1920To whom or what do you pray? What is it that you find sacred enough to be the focus of your devotion? If you belong to an organized religion you are readily supplied with images and symbols, no need to imagine or search for anything else. Someone, somewhere paints or sculpts a figure and you are told this is it, this is sacred and you accept it, your rational mind will tell you this can only be an assumed depiction but your yearning spirit will see only the beauty made and happily believe the essence of all that is good radiates well enough from it to not question too deeply, no harm in any of this but what is not being recognized is that whatever is radiated from the object does not come from the object itself but rather is an outpouring of the accumulated energy with which others have imbued it, no matter, the energy is still beneficial. So, what of those with belief but no structured religion, on what do they focus? Many would look to the skies, the heavens, influenced by legend and myth, assuming anything more powerful than they must surely reside there, in order, to better oversee and tend the lesser mortals. Strangely, even the most dedicated church goer will sometimes forsake the sanctuary of a church building to gaze upward and direct their pleas to the skies, even they believe what they seek is so immensely powerful and so far removed from themselves that it could surely not lower itself to be down amongst them on Earth. It is human instinct to seek something higher to protect and guide but higher does not mean physically higher but rather spiritually higher and believing there to be more God presence in a symbol than there is in anything living is also untrue, for, God presence is here, it is in and of everything, you, us and all of Earth, it is as present in a single leaf on a tree as it is in an entire cathedral. There is no need to humble yourself before a statue, no need for symbols on which to focus, no need to shout to the skies, just whisper your prayers, beloved children, no matter where you should be, no matter what you gaze upon, for, God is here within and with you, just whisper to all that is around you and  know your prayers will be heard.

OPEN ARMS

angel-574647_1280.jpgSometimes, when one has struggled with life for a long time, the struggle becomes the life. Every day becomes a race against the clock, becomes a blur of activity, mostly spent, trying to please others and “ keep it together “. It can be thought by those locked into this way of life, that if, they just keep trying, keep forcing their influence on situations, those situations must surely improve. They come to believe their will is the magic ingredient for change to occur, this is only partly true. Your will, of course, has influence and worth but to believe that this is the only energy at play creates a very narrow understanding of life. The resources and information available to you, in this time, are limitless, so much so, the very diversity of choice can leave one stunned into inaction, unable to discern which avenue would be of help. The bare truth of this is that while some help or relief may be achieved through mundane resources outside of yourself, the best way to attain resolution to struggle is to not reach, to not search for answers but to let go and allow. The phrase “ letting go “is, often, to the human mind, equated with the phrase “ giving up “ and thus seen, in some way, to be negative and indicative of weakness. We cannot stress enough how very untrue this is. Letting go is one of the bravest actions and shows great strength, while, giving up, at core, means presenting upwards to something higher than yourself, something you know, at heart, will gladly receive it. A life lived well is a full and active life, a minimal amount of struggle to achieve this is acceptable, even, unavoidable. ‘Tis true a little adversity builds spirit but when the little grows into much do not hesitate to give up/present up, for, we will gladly take that which confounds you, lighten it with love and peace to return to you less burdensome. Let go, beloved children, present up to us, for, we await with arms wide open.

WHAT LIES BENEATH

underwater-1599426_1920.jpgImagine, if, all the seas were to run dry, revealing all that has lain beneath since the beginning of time. New landscapes would appear with new valleys, new mountain ranges, everything lost to its’ depths, over millennia would now be discoverable. What an intriguing treasure hunt it would become. Time and the natural corrosive quality of seawater, would have, changed some of the detritus beyond recognition or use, still, it would birth wonder in the seeker and spur them on to continue. You, too, have hidden treasures thought lost for good, laying dormant and unseen, covered by a, seemingly, impenetrable layer. For you, of course, this layer is not water but energy, karmic energy, that has gathered and deepened with each successive incarnation. Its’ purpose was protection and it had worth, until now. Unlike those of the true sea, your treasures, are kept safe and preserved, they await their own rediscovery, for, while the Earths’ seas will never cease to be, the energy that covers the true landscape of your soul, will, in this lifetime, begin to disperse. This is not loss, it is gain. As the layers of self imposed protection ebb away, old possessions will be found, one by one, slowly enough to allow time to evaluate their worth. It may be found that some never really needed to be hidden, they were, perhaps, concealed through misguided fear, while others needed to await the correct time to be uncovered. All of this, if allowed, will lead to the enlightenment you seek, for, enlightenment is not something given, it is something revealed and just as the dwindling of the seas would bring light to a new land and its’ treasures, the dwindling of your karmic energy will bring new light to you and your treasures. Fear not this unveiling, beloved children, but rather delight in the excitement of the hunt and take joy in the discovery of what lies beneath.

THE BEAST

osborne-1802181_19201380870239.jpgGrief is a natural part of human existence and can never be fully eradicated from anyone’s lifetime, for, love cannot exist without grief and grief cannot exist without love. These two emotions are not counter balance to each other nor are they twinned, grief and love each hold basic, integral energies for life on the Earth plane, they are core energies. You know well that you are all love at the core, you know you all came from love and shall return to love, no matter what occurs in between but do you know you also came from grief? The sadness of separation from source was the first emotion ever felt by your being other than love. It lay dormant “til your first breath and will reside within you “til your last. The level of it’s strength and influence in your life is, largely, choice. This may seem harsh, even flippant and we mean no disrespect. Many of you have endured enormous loss and hardship, grieving for your life’s tragedies is understandable but grief, when allowed to run free in one’s life, can become a hungry beast, one that constantly craves sustenance. The beast will constantly refeed on whatever sadness you face in the now, it will gather to it hurts from the past and manifest possible future hurts, all of which, it will gladly chew over and over again, as would, a cow with cud. Very few of you are aware that this occurs and mostly this lack of awareness is caused by the enduring presence of the original grief of separation. As humans you are accustomed to grief from the moment you are born, it’s energy is familiar to you and therefore accepted.  Any other tragedy from birth on, if allowed, will feed and sustain the original until, it grows hugely fat, blocking out any light and overshadowing love. We cannot prevent sadness, we cannot remove all grief from life, we can, only, remind you that you are love at the core and you are loved to the core. Tolerate the beast of grief as best you can, beloved children, acknowledge it’s presence but do not allow it to run free and never allow it to block out the light.

GLITTER

glitter-2546960_1920.jpgThe road to spiritual freedom is dotted with minute pieces of glitter, glitter that from a distance, can seem, so enticing and intriguing. What could it be, is it some treasure, some rarity placed in your path by providence, waiting to be found by you? The hope and anticipation that carries one forward to solve this mystery can raise the energy of the seeker to new heights. The thrill of something new and shiny is manna to the soul but distance and circumstance can play tricks with perception, both optically and psychologically. Often, once the seeker has traversed the distance necessary to ascertain the truth of the glitter, that much anticipated curiosity, is found, it seems, to be nothing of any true value, just a trick of the light caused by its’ position and yours. ‘Tis true, that, the cosmos will place enticements along your path to spur you on to new thoughts and ways, to urge you into new circumstances you would not normally seek and ‘tis, also, true not all circumstances will be what you imagined them to be. That glittering, could be diamond, may just turn out to be stone. This discovery can, understandably, bring a sense of disappointment and lead some to feel they have wasted their time and allowed their yearning to fool them to truth. A very human response but unnecessary. Think, for a moment, what your path would be like, if, there were nothing to capture your imagination, nothing to liven your mind. These “tricks” of the light are not sent to tease or annoy, they are sent to enable you to find your own truth, to encourage you to step up and look closely at all that is before you and choose whether it has value or not, and value itself is a choice, for, value does not, only, equal material riches, value can be found in wisdom gained. So, we ask that, if the diamonds you hope for are found to be stone, remember that the stone was still able to reflect light, still able to reflect back to you that which you seek and therein lies its’ value. Step lightly along your path, beloved children, allow what glitters to catch your eye and pique your interest, for, there is time enough for diversions on the road to freedom.

THREE

flame-church-wax-light-161073.jpegThere are three things a person must reach for and know if they wish to live a life of joy, none of which is attainable in the physical form. Very few objects can, even, attempt to replicate the joy of spiritual possessions. What thing could match the joy felt by a full and loving heart? What thing could equal the peace born of faith or the wholeness felt from the connection to all and everything? ‘Tis true that, much sought after, objects can bring feelings akin to joy, they may bring feelings of happiness and satisfaction, they may give a sense of self-worth. All this seems good and surely worthwhile and so it is, for a time but these feelings are not permanent, they are transient, just as your life is transient. Almost everything you are, your body and all you own, will one day cease to be and you will not care. Moments of happiness, sadness and a myriad of other emotions are fleeting and will, in time, disperse, they are as transient as your body, but truth is not fleeting nor transient and it does not bide in your body. Truth bides in your soul, it is at the core of your being, the core that is, was and always will be. Everything other than this core and its’ truth is an illusion and just as a magician will use drifting smoke to cover the truth of his magic, drifting emotions will cover the truth of your magic. We do not suggest that emotions are needless nor that you should cease to yearn or desire, we simply ask, that you look past the smokescreen they create to see what lies hidden there, for, we guarantee, beloved children you will find the truth of I am love, I am peace and I am wholeness, your three magic possessions. Reach for them, know them and be joy.

SYMPHONY

violin-2772433_1920(1).jpgWhat is it that you do when you are lonely, when you feel lost to the world at large? Most would simply seek company, believing the physical presence of another would alleviate their yearning, this should work – shouldn’t it? Strangely, lonely doesn’t always mean you are physically alone. It is often said that one can feel lonely in a crowded room, so it seems that even the presence of many people is not a solution, could it be that the missing energy is not the energy of physical presence but the energy of connection? Some people, even within their own home surrounded by their own family, still feel alone and lonely. When two people marry and perhaps begin to create their own family, their thoughts can include the idea that if they do this they will never be lonely, they will always have some-one. Unfortunately, even if, the family stay physically close and no-one is taken by death, loneliness can still occur. It seems no amount of true and full love can assuage loneliness once it has settled into the psyche, for that is where it truly lives. It does not dwell in your heart, it does not float through your soul, it drones away, like white noise, in the back of your mind, disallowing any clear and solid connection to the energies at your disposal. Until this fake interference is settled no amount of company will satisfy the lonely, for, loneliness is a lie and lies do not resonate with any part of your mind, body or soul. They jumble your energy and scramble the music of life. If you concentrate now, search for that troublesome noise, silence it with trust and acceptance that we are all one at the core, perhaps it will clear and new connections can be made or even old ones re-established. Listen for and heed the noises in your mind, take care that the noise be true and clear so that it can easily harmonize with the real music playing. Take your place in the orchestra, beloved children and create with us and all a symphony of joy, for you are not truly alone or lonely, it’s just the noise of the lie in your head interfering with the broadcast from the universe and all that is.
