The Best of Intentions
Message from Ascended Master Babaji
Many times we have the best of intentions when it comes to helping others.
We may come across a family member or loved one or friend and they seem to be going through a hard time.
We often get subtle messages or feelings to stay out of the problem to let them sort it out.
Often times we ignore those warnings from the Still Small Voice Within and we dive right in with advice and assistance and aid.
Many times the entire situation results in hard feelings between you and that person you so lovingly wished to help.
What went wrong?
When we ignore that warning from the Still Small Voice Within and start to help others, we are ignoring that, many times, a person is having a difficult time because they are off track spiritually and that their higher self is placing them in this seemingly difficult situation so that the person can gain spiritually from it.
We have all heard the idea that there is often times a silver lining in a storm cloud.
Sometimes it is best to stand back and allow a person to have their "storm" experience so that they get the lesson or the "silver lining."
If you interfere and try to help them then the person will miss the lesson and not become a better person.
Your best intentions may actually be calamitous to the other person.
This does not mean that you don't extend a helping hand at all.
What this means is to ask for a sign from the Creator as to whether or not you should help and how much help should you give to a person.
This is the practical advice that I offer to you today.
May you find it of use.
Speak The Other's Language
Message From Ascended Master Maitreya
When you are on the spiritual path and you are achieving a measure of success with self mastery and you are feeling Unity Consciousness, you - like me - will feel a desire to help others.
We wish to tell others that there is a better way to live.
There is a way that we can live where we have only kind thoughts and where we can live without fear and anxiety.
When we begin to help others we come up against a rude awakening.
We discover that many will reject what we have to say.
We can become bewildered, distracted, and yes, a bit angry at others.
We will lose faith in our fellow Aspects of the Divine.
We can begin to think that they are unchangeable, truly lost.
This is not the case for many.
Those who currently are asleep to the reality of a spiritual life that is free from misery simply can't understand or believe how to get there.
Many think that they will need to sacrifice everything to obtain this state, that they will have to become a robot to become a person who can have only kind thoughts.
Some will think that those with only kind thoughts are pushovers and will be trampled underfoot.
Others will think that the spiritual life means no pleasures in life.
All of these things, of course, are not true.
So how does one navigate through these misconceptions and untruths?
May I offer some practical advice in this regards.
When wanting to help another first find out if they are wanting help.
If you know someone who is in a constant state of worry you may want to help them with spiritual advice.
First ask them. You will often find that the person actually likes to be worried, that they are addicted to worry. They may decline the help or put off the help.
The advice here is not to take on their problem Allow them to experience what they want to experience which is worry.
When they have had enough they will be back to you for the help,
Asking them is the first step. Standing back an allowing them to come to you in thier right time is the second step.
The third step is to only give them one simple tip to work with. You can find many simple tips right here on this web site. Look for a tip that can help reduce worry.
Only give them that tip and do it in a language that they can understand.
This is the way that you can be of service to others.
Be Strong in Your Focus.
Message from Master Padmasambhava.
I am here today to talk about how we often start down a spiritual path with a strong sense of urgency - we discover practices like meditation and conscious breathing throughout the day and forgiving and positive affirmations.
And then we start to become distracted and within one month we have stopped all of these practices.
This is the human condition.
We become distracted and move on to other things in our hectic lives.
However, in order to advance spiritually, we all need to develop consistent habits and practices that support our spiritual path.
How to make this happen?
Allow me to suggest a few tips.
Tip one is to consider having a partner in this endeavor.
If you have decided to start meditating, then get a partner that is also starting meditation.
You don't have to meditate together, just call each other each day to talk about meditation and to remind each other to do the meditation.
Having a buddy will help to stay focused.
Tip two is to start only one new practice at a time. For example, start to meditate, master meditation and then add another new practice.
How do you master a practice?
When you perform the practice nearly every day without fail then you have mastered the practice.
Tip three is to make room for your new practice by dropping an old practice.
For example, meditation might be a 30 minute activity in the evening for you.
You may have a tendancy to surf the net or social media for an hour in the evening.
Give up 30 minutes of that so that you have time now for meditation.
I hope that these three simple tips help you on your spiritual path.
Know the Subtleties of Spiritual Bypass.
Ascended Master El Morya.
When alive in the Earth, I struggled so hard to empty myself of greed and want and addictions and aversions and desires.
I wanted to be an empty vessel for the Creator.
After a few years, I had emptied myself sufficiently to the point where I began to think that my struggles were over - that I had arrived to a new level of mastery.
I began to loosen up and forget the practices that brought me to where I was.
I began to stop certain practices, believing that I was beyond them now.
I began to sink back into the illusion.
It was a gradual process - somewhat similar to falling asleep in a warm bath tub.
This slipping back into the illusion of dualism after achieving a certain level of spirituality is known as Spiritual Bypass.
I awakened with a start one day - like the sleeping bather whose nose has slipped under water and who awakes with a gagging cough.
I found myself mentally judging someone, much to my dismay.
This was a sign that I had slipped out of unity consciousness and was now back in the illusion of duality.
I had stopped too many practices that allowed me to stay One with the Infinite Creator.
I took an inventory of the practices that I had stopped and found a few vital ones that were quickly re-adopted and allowed me to stabilize my surrender back into the arms of the One.
Would you like to know what those vital practices are that keep one maintained in Unity consciousness - in that state of knowing and feeling that we are one with the all that is and that we can't judge because we are merely judging an aspect of ourselves?
They are very simple.
The first practice is appreciation and thanks. I became complacent and ungrateful of all the blessings bestowed upon me by the Creator.
Every simple thing in my life is a blessing: my warm bed at night; my toothbrush; the sun warming my face.
All these things I am appreciative of. I began again to consciously pause and be thankful and grateful for these things.
The second practice is the art of silencing the mind with constant conscious breathing.
There are many ways that one can approach this.
I particularly enjoy the deep inhale and then holding the breath for as long as comfortable and then letting the air relax out of me with a sigh.
I would repeat this over and over through the day.
It is quite relaxing and really make the mind go blank.
The third practice of vital necessity, is the surrendering of self to the Creator with each breath.
Surrendering of each action was necessary.
I asked to know what was the highest possible next action for me.
These three practices are akin to swimming in the ocean.
To stop these actions is equivalent to sinking under the water and back into the illusion.
The advice for today is to adopt these practices with every waking moment to remove yourself from spiritual bypass.
Get Your House in Order First.
Message From Ascended Master Maitreya.
My. My. My.
So many of my fellow humans are buzzing like angry bees.
Buzz. Buzz. Buzz.
Leaving angry thought forms floating in the universe like land mines during war.
Is this what you really want to be doing in life -spewing poison in the form of criticizing and judging and hating others?
You create discordant energy in the process - it is a pollution more toxic than all the pesticides and GMO crops, and greedy bankers combined.
Did you know that your thoughts are producing such havoc and wreckage in the unseen world of energetics?
It is a pollution so thick that only earthquakes and fires and storms can wash it from the energetic fields of Earth.
Would you like to know how to be as clean and fastidious in the world of unseen energy as you are in your kind acts of recycling, conserving water, reducing carbon and saving animals and the environment?
The first step is to clean up your inner world of thoughts and emotions.
Know that every hateful thought, every critical thought (no matter how small), creates energetic pollution around you and actually makes you age faster and become sick.
Know that hateful thoughts and critical thoughts are like a drug.
We humans can become addicted to hateful thoughts and critical thoughts.
Know that hateful thoughts and critical thoughts are a choice that you make in your life.
How to break the habit and kick the addiction?
Monitor your internal thoughts and emotions.
When a hateful or critical thought arises in the mind, cancel it mentally. Say to yourself, " I cancel this thought."
The Creator will instantly transmute that energy to pure energy.
When the emotions of anger, hate, fear, jealousy, or bitterness arise, ask the Creator to take it and the root cause away forever.
Secondly, the absence of thought and emotional energetic pollution will cause a vacuum in your system.
Would you like to know what to replace it with?
The answer is the Divine qualities of Unconditional Love, Unconditional Acceptance and Unconditional Neutrality.
No one expects you to Love and embrace a mass murderer.
However you can learn to replace your hate of the mass murderer with the Unconditional Acceptance that this being is very sick and that it is a great idea that this being be restrained from harming others.
This Unconditional Acceptance of the situation produces no energetic pollution.
You can use this for all of the self-serving ones that we see in the world today.
Following this simple advice can go a long ways toward reducing your mis-qualified energy footprint.
Day by day use of the advice will also make you look and feel younger as well.
What a great gift this is!
Believe That You Are Protected.
Message From Archangel Michael.
Many times we can become so afraid of life that we quit it.
We retract and shrink from life.
We deny ourselves the freedom to enjoy life.
We close ourselves off from new adventures and new relationships because we have been hurt so deeply in the past that we promise ourselves, "Never Again."
Then, this "Never Again" takes over like a smothering blanket, keeping us tucked in so tight that we can neither move nor breathe.
Is that what you want for yourself?
Do you wish to know how to throw off this paralyzing fear that has gripped you like fly paper?
Allow me to provide a way out.
Firstly, know, that in your heart of hearts, you are always protected by the Creator.
That is what we archangels do.
As long as you are not harming others, we are at your beck and call for protections.
Ask the Creator to protect you from emotional and physical and energetic harm and so shall it occur.
Do you believe that the Creator can protect you?
Then ask and so shall it occur.
Secondly, surrender the management of your life to the Creator.
Do you trust the Creator enough to allow her to manage things from behind the scenes?
She wishes nothing more than happiness and love into your life.
Do you believe that the Creator can provide opportunities for happiness and love to flow into your life?
Then ask and so shall it shall occur.
Love Yourself and Others As Much As You Love The All That Is.
Look at the people you pass by and greet and interact.
Feel the textures of the furniture and doors that you come into contact with.
Feel the pleasure from the warm shower that starts or ends your day.
All of this - everything - is made from the All That Is.
What is the All That Is?
It is our Creator and it is the Creator of everything that we can see hear and touch.
It is you and it is me and every other person place or thing.
It is Love and it accepts All because it is All.
It is always here to help us and to guide us toward it's Love.
Be still in your brain.
Quiet it down and ask a question.
A Still Small Voice will whisper an answer to you.
This is the All That Is.
It will whisper messages of kind advice and practical advice and advice that you may not want to hear - like pay back that loan from your mother!
This Voice Within will guide you always in a way that is harmless to yourself and others. This is how you can tell that you are talking to the All That Is.
Ultimately, the All That Is wishes for you to be kind and loving and accepting of all others.
To do so is to be kind and loving and accepting to yourself and to the All That Is - because we are all One.
Start first with being kind and loving and accepting to yourself.
Say kind things to yourself.
Forgive yourself of your past mistakes and start anew this very moment.
Then forgive everyone else.
Then forgive the All That Is.
If you find this hard to do, then ask the All That Is to take away the hate within you and replace it with Love and Kindness and Acceptance.
Keep asking this and you will notice that you will become more Loving and Kind and Accepting each day.
You will also become happier because it is the natural state of all of us - Love.
Allow the Universe to Unfold without Friction.
Message from Jesus Christ.
This universe that we find ourselves in is massive.
It is beyond comprehension.
Look up into the night sky and behold the wonders of countless stars and galaxies holding trillions upon trillions of planetary spheres.
The idea that this planet is alone in the universe, is the only source of sentient life, is laughable.
We are small in comparison the vastness of this Universe and that makes many fearful.
Many contract into fear and become hoarders and greedy and controlling and self serving in a way to placate their fear.
But bowing down to this fear only emboldens it.
The fear will demand more and more until it controls your life and forces you to swim against the Divine Flow of the Universe.
Flowing against the Universe is a hopeless task.
Flowing against the Universe is like trying to stop a hurricane with an umbrella.
The umbrella collapses and the flow carries you away.
Being the friction and pushing back against Divine Flow merely makes you miserable and sick and others around you miserable and sick.
Do you wish to end your turn at being the source of misery?
Ask for help from our Creator.
Ask for a sign as to how to live life.
You will receive more help than you can possibly imagine.
You are not small and insignificant.
You are a Child of our Creator.
Our Creator is always within you, waiting for you to ask for help.
When you ask for help, the Creator and the Universe responds.
When a Loved One Rejects Your Beliefs.
Ascended Master Afra.
During these times many will Awaken and realize that they are a part of a much larger universe than they first imagined. Many will realize certain Truths that have been hidden from their societies such as the universal nature of reincarnation and such things as there is no hell and that the Earth and her peoples are now involved in a Global Ascension event.
These things, when one is Awakened, feel right and make sense.
However to loved ones that have yet to Awaken to the knowledge and feeling that we are all God, that we are all made from the same being, that we should be harmless towards each other because to harm another is to harm Self.
These Truths can be met with disbelief and with derision.
You, the newly Awakened, will feel rejected and lonely.
Those of your family will grow to feel like strangers because they begin to treat you like a stranger.
I bring you comfort and love at such times.
Do not blame them for their disbelief.
It is simply not yet their time to Awaken.
May I give you simple advice?
Allow these sleeping ones to stay asleep.
The Global Ascension process will eventually Awaken all like a giant alarm clock.
Some will Awaken earlier than others.
It is not your duty or my duty to Awaken someone before their time. In fact, such an action can create great harm to the sleeping one.
Let them be.
Talk to those who are already Awakened and find out from them how to continue your Journey toward a place where you feel inside you only love and acceptance for all that you meet.
This is where you can focus your time and attention.
Focus on yourself.
Release the things inside you that are not from God.
Be Willing to Explore Your Blind Spots.
Message from Ascended Master Zarathustra.
It takes courage for us to ask another to provide us with their observations about our behavior.
It can be a blow to the ego to discover that we are not perfect.
We have flaws that, perhaps, we are blind to.
Let me assure you that we all have blind spots.
Inviting a trusted fiend to provide this feedback is one way to illuminate the parts of us that we cannot see.
This can have pitfalls in that the trusted friend may have a distorted view of you and may start to project their own issues onto you.
Another way to explore your blind spots is to take note every time another person displays a behavior that you don't like.
This anger or dislike that you are feeling will point to something within you that can be released to the Creator and healed from you.
Watch closely your feelings when around others.
The feelings act as a mirror to the blind spots within you.
Master Within and this Will Manifest in the Outer.
Message from Ascended Master Buddha.
Perhaps the most confusing lesson for many with regards to how to make the world a better place is this desire to try to first change things in the world around us.
We try and try to change our environment and we find ourselves hitting up against walls.
We rail against injustice when we see others perpetrate atrocities and we become angry and hateful in the process.
Do you see the madness in this approach?
When you fight hate with hate, you merely increase the hate in the world.
You are doing the opposite of what you want to do - you make the world a worse place.
Instead, may I offer a piece of practical advice to get out of this trap?
The first place to make better in the world is within you.
Fight the hatred within you.
Fight the anger within you.
Fight the jealousy and envy and anxiety and fear within you.
When you conquer these things within then you will find peace within you.
You can then show others how to do the same thing.
They will, in turn, help others and you will see the world change.
How to fight those things within you?
Surrender them to the Creator.
Ask the Creator to take it away from you when it rises up within you.
It shall be done.
Change within and you shall see it manifest outside of you.
When You Wish For Something That is Not For The Highest Good Of All.
Message From Ascended Master Saint Germain.
I am famous for manifesting. I am famous for talking of the Infinite Abundance from the Divine Creator. I talk of precipitating from the Divine Essence precious jewels and gold.
But what of those who wish and wish and can't seem to manifest? What are we to make of these many who complain that the word is against them, that they can't seem to catch a break?
For these who have this occurring I suggest that you go within and ask the great I AM Presence within for Truth regarding this.
You may not like what you hear!
For those who wish for things and riches that are not for the highest good of all, that are self serving and only feed the ego instead of the Divine purpose will get little or nothing or just enough to survive.
If you find yourself in this position, then I have practical advise for you if you wish to hear it.
If you don't wish to hear this then I suggest that you stop reading now less the sensibilities of your ego becomes inflamed with tantrums.
Divine riches and never ending prosperity were never meant to serve your egoic needs. It was meant to serve your Divine Purpose in life.
Your Divine Purpose is the soul plan that you created with blessings from the Creator. It is a plan that draws upon your unique talents that are meant to uplift humanity in great or small ways according to what you wanted to do here on Earth.
Some plan to be Kings and some plan to be gardeners. Both are equal in the eyes of our Creator.
It is the gardener who wishes to be king or the king who wishes to be god are those who have let the passions of the ego take control of their life and will find that prosperity and abundance will soon dry like a pond in the desert, leaving only cracks in the ground.
However, the gardener that wishes to create a spectacular botanical masterpiece that uplifts all who visits will find the gates to prosperity flung open to support this dream which is in perfect alignment with Divine Purpose.
It is the King who wishes to uplift the population with the Divine Qualities of helping thy neighbor and equality and the honoring of each other's Divine Purpose who will soon be presiding over a rich and populous nation.
Simply put, today's practical advice is as follows: Surrender your life to your Divine Purpose and prosperity will follow. Tell the Creator, "I surrender to you my life towards my Divine Purpose. Tell me what to do." Next, listen closely to the Still Small Voice within for instructions. Write the advice that comes from within on a journal. If it is filled with practical, instructive advice on how to fulfill your Divine Purpose then you know that you are listening to the Creator and not your ego.
This is your choice: service to self or service to your Divine Purpose.
Tolerance and Compassion for Those Asleep.
Message From Archangel Mathias.
We in the Heavenly Realms know that it can be difficult on Earth with so many who are asleep to the world of the Divine, who are asleep to the world and ways of the spiritual path towards Unity Consciousness.
There are many who are asleep to this decision that we have on Earth to be of service to the Divine by following our Soul Plan (that we created) or to be service to self and to live a life separated from our Creator.
Those who are asleep often find themselves filled with pain and anguish as they become attached to ideas and people and things that leave them prisoners to the world, tied in binding cords that constrict them with despair.
They suffer, and, many times, lash out. This is where you, the Awakened Ones, can help. Can you view those that are violent and those that are controlling and those that lie, cheat and steal - can you view them as injured beings in need of healing instead of villains to be eradicated?
This is not an invitation to place yourself in harms way. This is an invitation to let go of the hate that you may be holding for those who harm others.
Can you let the anger and the hate go and replace it with Forgiveness?
A choice to be made along your journey toward Unity Consciousness.
Belong to A Higher Purpose.
Message from ArchAngel Michael.
Each time we incarnate onto the Earth we come with Divine Purpose.
It is very easy to know what that purpose is.
As a child, what were you fascinated by?
What gave you joy as a child?
What was your passion as a child?
These things are your Divine Purpose.
If you have long ago abandoned your childhood passions, perhaps it is time to revisit them to become reacquainted.
It is never too late.
Many of you are so giving of yourselves. You are rushing hither and fro as you attend to the affairs of others and worry about the fate or status of this and that.
When do you find time for yourself?
More to the point, when do you nurture your spiritual needs?
When others discover that you are available to hear of their sorrows, they will flock to you and take your time.
Many love to take energy with little in return.
For some of you this is what you do. You were meant to take this situation and transmute it.
For many others however, we need to ask ourselves, "Am I using up all of my time because I don't want to address my own self care?"
If you answered this question with a "Yes." the last thing that is advisable is to judge the self. This situation is all too common in life. Sometimes it is easier to help others with their spiritual and emotional problems than it is to look deep inside and to take care of our own.
I have some simple advice here for you if you wish it: Take some time off from being a savior and server of your friends and family and let it all go. Attend to yourself for a week. Pamper only yourself for a week. Disappear for a week and examine what you really want in life.
Have the courage to take this time away from it all to just stop and assess what you want.
Then have the courage to make the changes that you need to make what you want happen.
Allow the World Around You to Breathe.
Message From Ascended Master Chan.
I am an old Master and many have no recollection of me as my teachings have been lost in the mists of time. What I can say is that I lived and I found realization that I am playing a role here - the Creator as a little old Chinese man. I played this role for a while and then I moved on. During this time I enjoyed life and it's simple pleasures on Earth.
This was many centuries ago that I taught my students many things that I see today still need teaching.
Many of us who arrive back on Earth forget our origins and that is how we planned it. We wanted an experience of limited intelligence and limited memory and a sense of really being apart from everyone else.
It turns out, however, that many of us don't like this separateness and apparent absence of our Creator. We become frightened and in this state of fright we make an effort to over control what is going on around us.
In fact we try to control everything that comes into our sphere of influence to such an extant that we smother the best qualities of being on Earth: the freedom from perfection.
You see we are all perfect beings. We can manifest with a simple thought. But being perfect can get a little boring. So we decided to create more of a challenge and this universe is the result.
It is imperfect. We can trip and fall. We forget things. We laugh at our mistakes. We can make this a fun existence - if we don't fall into the fear trap and try to over control.
Being around those who attempt to over control make all involved feel sad, mad and frustrated. No one likes to be around the one who compulsively controls and smothers spontaneity.
Do you wish to stop being that person for a while and see where it leads you?
Here is what you can do:
Simply stop and let things be. If you see a pencil about to roll off a desk - let it. If a child spills her milk, allow it. If the dog snatches a hot dog from the table, let it be and enjoy how that dog is enjoying that hot dog.
Let it all go and let life get sloppy.
Life is sloppy.
This is a sloppy universe.
That's why it's fun.
Heal Yourself By Forgiving Yourself for not Being Perfect at 30.
Message from ArchAngel Cassiopeia.
As humans, we are our own worst enemies. We are our own worst bosses. We can be so demanding upon ourselves and when we fall short of perfection we berate ourselves and call ourselves the most brutish and nasty names imaginable. If others could hear the names that we call ourselves they would be shocked. If we called others the names that we call ourselves we would soon be in a fight.
We can be so unforgiving of ourselves because we place such unrealistic demands upon our lives.
We are the ones that make such goals like, "I will be a millionaire by the age of 30 with three children and a dream house and with a meteoric career."
As if these things were absolutely necessary within that time frame. But who made those goals and rules? Was it your higher self? Was it someone that you knew? Was it your ego?
These types of goals are unrealistic and savagely damaging because they place harsh time limits with harsh consequences if they are not achieved.
Like George Bailey, the character in the film, It's a Wonderful Life, we condemn ourselves for not reaching perfection at the age of 30 and we contemplate ending our lives because of the fickle desires of our egos.
Do you wish to know the solution to this madness?
Accept yourself just the way you are and throw away all of the conditions that you have placed upon yourself. Throw them all the away. You will feel much better.
After taking out the trash. Just live life one day at a time and ask your Higher Self, that Still Small Voice Within, "What is my real purpose in life?"
You will receive an answer as a knowing or as a vision or in a few short words or memories. This message from your higher self will fill you with a certain peace and you will know that it is Truth.
When you get to the real Truth of yourself, then go about being that Truth without goals and expectations.
This is called living life in Truth.
Believe in the Magic of The Universe.
Message from ArchAngel Ariel.
There really is magic in this Universe. All you must do is open your eyes and pay attention. Slow down in your hurrying about here and there. Slow down your breathing and slow down your thoughts. When you do, you will start to notice the miracles that are happening around you, large and small.
Talk to your friends and ask about the seeming miracles that have happened to them and to those they know. The conversation will soon become thick with unexplainable miracles.
There is not mistake here. This is not foggy thinking. These miracles are real and an entire hidden universe of angels are making these things happen.
If you feel like that these are not happening to you, I suggest that you consider that there are two types of magical miracles that occur - those that you do like and then there are those that you don't like.
The ones that you do like may feel few and far between. The ones that you don't like seem to be frustrating blocks to a happy life.
I suggest that you ask yourself this question? Is what you want in your life in alignment with the soul plan you created before birth?
Many have a happy life laid out in the pre-birth environment that is then ignored in life. Many have instructions laid out to their guides and helpers - steer me back onto my path if I stray too far from my path.
And that is the miracle that many of us, in the heat of the moment, curse. "How dare I get stopped from starting that relationship. I'm sure it was perfect for me!" This is, by far the most common miracle - the stopping of a relationship that would have ended with a long journey of despair.
Instead, may I recommend a higher view on life?
When your plans seem to be stopped out of no fault of your own, check with your higher self and see if you are on the right path.
The right path for you is filled with joy and fulfillment. Perhaps you took a left turn instead of a right turn and the universe is trying to give you a message.
Listen to the message and ask for help to get back on your soul path and the universe will respond with help galore.
Your wishes can come true. Just wish for those things that serve your higher purpose.
It is your choice!
Keep Your Eye on Your Inner Work.
Message from Ascended Master Mary Magdalene.
It is so easy, so tempting, so seductive to be more concerned about another person's spiritual condition than it is to be concerned about one's own.
Why is this so? For many, digging deep into one's own fears and judgements and hatreds is painful and shameful. It is unpleasent and our ego is programmed to avoid pain and to flock toward less pain or to pleasure.
In terms of spirituality, this means we will gravitate towards distractions, anything but what we need to concentrate on. These distractions take many forms - many will distract themselves by judging others, many will also distract themselves with stories of easy days ahead and automatic healing. Still others will retreat back into the Illusion and avoid spirituality altogether.
What is spirituality? It is the journey away from selfishness and fear and separation and towards cooperation and courageous joy and unity. Spirituality certainly has big payoffs.
Why so many wishing to abandon it with distractions and illusions?
Inner work is the painful answer. When we crack open the door to the room where we store our repressed feelings and thoughts, we glimpse a house of horrors and we shut it fast, just wanting it to go away. "How can I have thought all of those things?" many think, aghast at the memories of terrible things done, thought, and felt.
We become quick to judge ourselves as evil or not worthy of Love from our Creator. We start thinking that we are better off dead because of our thoughts and deeds and behaviors. We torture ourselves with guilt.
Are you ready for the way out of this mess?
Firstly, it is not suicide. That never solves the issue because we never really die. We just carry these issues into the afterlife and have to deal with them there.
The way out of this mess is to realize that our Creator loves us no matter what. We are always forgiven. Our Creator waits patiently for us to figure this out and to come back to s/he so that we can be comforted and forgiven for our seeming mistakes.
Surprisingly to many, the Creator does not view anything that we do as a mistake. The Creator views our every move as if we are small children trying to figure out our environment. Things will happen. Lessons will be learned. No need for judgement.
Are you starting to understand?
Time now to empty out that room of shame and guilt that you have been holding onto. The door is ready to explode open, anyways. It is better for you to open the door and Surrender all within to the Creator of All That Is. Let the Creator take it away and lighten your load. S/he is always willing to help you . All you must do is ask.
If you are willing, that is. You can choose to ask or choose to handle it your way. The choice is up to you.
Keep Your Inner Peace in the Midst of Chaos
Ascended Master Zarathustra
During my time on earth entire villages would be destroyed and entire populations slaughtered for the sake of greed of one Tribal Warlord.
It was a cruel time for some but a heaven on Earth for others. This same dichotomoy holds true now as it did over 2 thousand years ago. It has been the great paradox of living on this planet. Your personal life can be of sheer misery and strife while that of your neighbor can be of perfect happiness and bliss.
The experiences that you receive in our life - and this is a most difficult lesson to learn - are mapped out before you are even born. So who is this master planner that is mapping your experiences? It is YOU, of course.
The reason why this seems difficult for you to understand is that you may wonder why would anyone plan tragedy into one's life. What possible purpose could that be to have a tragic death in the family or to be abused?
It is helpful to understand the totality of You. You are not just one life but many others. You have heard of reincarnation and I am here to tell you that reincarnation is truth and has been validated with years of research into the subject. You know it is true because you feel deep inside you that this is truth.
Looking at life from the perspective that One has had many lives can open up your thinking towards the acceptance of understanding why you would include tragedy in your life. Not only have you had many lives but all of your loved Ones have had many lives and, often times, you and your loved Ones switch roles from One lifetime to the next.
You are a part of a soul family and the purpose reincarnating over and over again is to have the opportunity to experience all the different emotions and situations that life has to offer before attempting a life where one wakes up, discovers that One, is indeed, a part of God and then ceases to become judgemental towards all brothers and sisters who are also a parts of God.
The whole purpose to your many lives is to accrue wisdom and understanding and, eventually, unconditional love towards all by realization that you are One with God.
This journey towards unconditional love requires, often times, many lives to get right. It can also require many lives to make right what has gone awry with others. In one life, you may have gone too far and killed another. That soul family member who was killed and you may now want, in this life, an opportunity to see if you can be more forgiving so the One who was killed is now an abusive father towards you.
These types of arrangements go on and on through lifetimes. It allows a full accounting of misdeeds created. This process can easily be stopped at any time by any soul with a simple, "I forgive and love you." to the other.
Love creates the healing for any current or past life conflicts, chaos or misery. When the victim forgives the victimizer and when the victimizer asks for forgiveness, a balance of Love is restored.
It is helpful to remember this when we encounter stories on the media of atrocities and shootings.
It is helpful to understand that the Ones who are the victims know that there is a strong probability that the atrocity will happen and that it serves a Higher Purpose for their multi-life journey.
This does not mean that we are not allowed to express sadness or grief towards the victims of the atrocity or anger at the perpetrator of the atrocity. We do live in a Free Will universe and the victimizer has had many opportunities to change his/her mind before creating an atrocity. In fact, many do change their minds and many atrocities never come about because the victimizer changes his/her mind. This is never reported because it is impossible to report and is much more common than the perpetration of atrocity.
The practical advice for today is to consider the higher purpose of all that occurs around you and to understand that these tragedies that are reported to us have meaning to those who experience it and it is a meaning that will be a mystery to us and, therefore, cannot be judged by us.
Thank you for considering this deeper view of reality and may it bring a calmness inside knowing of it.
The Power of Restraint
Message from Ascended Master Saint Germain
We are composite beings with a physical body, emotional body, mental body, a soul and a mighty I AM Presence within (our God Self).
Being a composite being means that we are often subject to conflicting emotions, thoughts and agendas within. Our physical self, for example, might be thirsty for a cool drink of water while the emotional self wishes to drown itself in beer.
So the conflict begins.
The mental self might be more for a mix of beer and water to minimize the damage while the soul and spirit are aligned with the body and ready for water.
We feel these conflicts within us every day and we wind up making choices. This is where we come across the Law of Free Will. Ultimately, a choice must be made and the Law of Free Will is simply a way of saying, "Honor the choices of Self and others."
Since we are composite beings, it makes sense to note that our choices are not always consistent from the viewpoint of others. Sometimes the emotional body is making the choice and sometimes the Spirit makes the choice in a similar situation. This looks like inconsistency. It is, in fact, very normal. This also brings up another Universal Law called the Law of Acceptance. In other words, we can't really judge another because of our choices. We Accept that we are divinely created beings and that we will make choices in accordance to the situation that our composite selves finds ourselves in.
Which bring us to the real topic of this conversation - Some decisions that we make are damaging to our selves. Some decisions that we make are damaging to others.
Have you had any decisions that you have regretted because that decision damaged Self or others?
Would you like a practical tool that can help you to tame the conflict within and bring more harmony between the different components of Self?
If so then I bring to you a practical tool called Restraint.
This tool, Restraint, is not popular because it often means stopping the impulses of the physical, emotional and mental bodies, the three components of Self most likely to lead you into decisions that you may regret.
However, Restraint allows for you time to make a decision that is for the Highest Good For All. What does this mean? Decisions made for the Highest Good for All are decisions that do not harm others.
If you wish to not harm others then use Restraint as a way to avoid spur of the moment decisions that could be spring from impulses of the physical, emotional or mental bodies. Not all, but many times, these impulses harm either yourself or others in some way.
If you wish to not harm others then use the tool of Restraint in the following way:
1) When making decisions don't make the decision on the spot. The exceptions, of course, are emergency decisions involving saving self and others from immediate danger.
2) find a quiet place and simply ask yourself mentally, "Is this decision that I feel that I want for the Highest Good For All." If you feel or here that Still Small Voice Within say, "No." or "Yes" then you have received tour answer.
3) Finally, have the courage and faith to stick with decisions that are for for the Highest Good of All. Sometimes, what is for the Highest Good of All requires you to decline participating in what looks like a fun time. This is where Restraint becomes a powerful tool that allows you to say "No." to others when you have heard "No." from your Inner Guidance which is the God within you or Holy Spirit.
Be aware that the universe wants you to enjoy life! For every opportunity that you say No to other opportunities will present themselves for review.
I AM Saint Germain and I wish you a full life!
Stay Focused on the Simple Things in Life.
Ascended Master Mahatma Gandhi.
I am happy to be back here to provide another practical message on how to stay in Happiness every day.
This goal of Happiness is important, you know. Happiness is a Divine Trait. Happiness is what makes the world go round. Thankfully, Happiness is more popular than you think. The vast majority of our dear brothers and sisters know how to maintain Happiness.
All we have to do is focus away on those things that we think will bring Happiness and focus on the things that really matter.
Things that matter include stopping for a friendly conversation with a stranger at the park. Happiness is exchanged if we let it. Happiness is feeding a stray cat. Happiness is making someone in your life smile. Happiness is watching your favorite movie or sport. Happiness is talking to your family, friends and loved ones about what makes them happy.
Happiness is helping another to practice the Art of Happiness.
Happiness like getting the big promotion at work can give one a fleeting sense of Happiness - until one learns that one now must work 20 more hours a week and worry about thousands of details. One realizes in this situation that the illusion of of more money and more fame and recognition is not a path to Happiness if it takes you away from the simple things in life like sharing a laugh and a cup of tea with an old friend.
My practical advice for you today is the following: When you have a big decision to make like career and location changes, ask yourself, "Will this take away from my Happiness?" If you feel a "No." then you are safe to proceed. If you feel a "Yes." then proceed at your own peril.
Be Happy. That's God's major desire for us all.
Bless All You Meet
There is a way that you can help every single person that crosses your path and it costs you nothing but creates an avalanche of good will: Simply bless everyone that you meet.
I will make this really easy for you: When you are out and about and you see another person simply say to yourself internally, "God Bless you, I Love you."
The more you say this the more that your life will transform around you as you are transformed from the inside out with this simple practice.
Let It Be, Let it Be
Ascended Master Zarathustra
It may be surprising for you to witness an ancient one like myself quoting the Beatles. My only comment to this is that wisdom can come from many places.
The subject of that song is very appropriate in this day and age. We are in what is called Ascension. This is the time where those who chose the path towards our Creator become more and more gentle, and innocent and allowing of what life will bring to them.
There are also those who will cling to a path of self service. This path brings with it a need to control, fear, and a resistance to what life brings them.
During these times, it becomes difficult for couples and families and friends as they each choose between these paths and each find themselves living with those who now seem like strangers as both paths become ever more divergent. Those on the path of Light will have no desire for activities that used to excite them, instead choosing pastimes more in alignment with their soul passion. Those on the path of self service will also find themselves uncomfortable around those of the Light. They will tend to become angry and accusatory, blaming the ones on the path of Light for their problems.
Both groups will become upset and many will wish for the olden times where each had much in common. Longing for the past, however, often omits truths that happened in the past. A closer inspection of the past, without John Lennon's rose glasses, will reveal that the past had many arguments and strife and depression, to name just a few points of drama.
The past is gone and now the present shows us that the world is splitting into two camps.
There is no use in resisting this or in becoming sad or in clinging to the past. This cycle repeats itself every so often and now it is back. It is a way for each individual to make a choice on how they want to proceed. There is no Judgement, however there are effects to choosing each path as mentioned earlier. One is of Joy and Happiness and one is of increasing misery.
The practical advice for today regarding your loved ones who have chosen a path different than yours: Let it Be. It is not for you to try to change their belief structure. Only they can choose to change.
The Power of Allowing
Message from ArchAngel Metatron
During our lives there are many times that we find ourselves in situations that we consider to be disastrous. Perhaps we have lost a job or find ourselves in a house that is under foreclosure. Many of us , in these situations, resist and try to fight what is obviously going to happen.
"Of course," many say, "I don't want to lose my house!" I reply to those who think in this manner of wanting to resist is to consider a higher reason for the situations that we are in. Many times, what is happening is necessary to clear out situations that are holding us back spiritually and in your own growth as a human. Some things in life the ego clamors for, hungers for and demands while the spirit knows that such a goal will lead to a break from the divine plan that we create before birthing here. There really is a higher reason for us being here on Earth and sticking with our Divine Plan will have a beatific effect upon us and many others.
The fact that we don't remember this does not make it not so. We also agreed that we would have a case of amnesia when we came here just to make this more of a challenge!
My practical advice for you today is if you find yourself in a situation that your ego finds to be catastrophic, consider accepting the situation and to ask the Creator to take you to a better place.
When you accept and then ask the Creator in this manner, you allow new and better situations to arrive into your life and you will find yourself in a place of allowance and flow.
Every day, Archangels, Jesus, or Ascended Masters dictate to C Louis Osburn words of Wisdom from the Heavenly Realms that are filled with Love and Light. Drink in this Wisdom and find yourself lifted to a better place with your True Self living a joyous life from the Heart.
