Message from Ascended Master Mary Magdalene
Many times we come to make a decision that we know is absolutely right. Minutes or hours later, the doubt starts to creep in. We are flooded with all these thoughts about what happens if this decision is a wrong one. Our minds create dozens, sometimes hundreds of problems out of thin air in support of changing our decision to something safer, something that fits in with what others will say is sensible.
This is how our egos kill our dreams. The ego is a construct created by us. It is a machine that is made up of rules that we have been creating since we were young. These rules are usually created after a painful physical or emotional event. A classic rule created by many of us appears as follows: As a child, you decide to try soemthing new like climb a tree. So up you go and you get higher and higher - untill you stab yourself on a broken tree branch and you feel pain and you cry. After you get down you make two new rules that you carry with you fo the rest of your life: "I'm never going to try that again!" and "I'm never going to try new things ever again because I'll get hurt."
You then carry these rules with you throughout your life. At the age of twenty your friends invite you to go hang gliding with them. At first you enthusiastically say, "Yes!" Later however, your ego starts to remind you about a few rules that you agreed to - namely, the one about not rying new things. The ego then goes on to imagine three or four worst case scenarious incvolving broken bones and death during hang gliding. You call your friend who is organizing the trip to count you out.
Incidents like these continue to happen over the years. We miss one opportunity after another to live life to the fullest, all because of these rules we create during our childhood. We become trapped in an invisible cage of our own making.
I say that it is time to break out of the invisible cages that we find ourselves trapped in and live life the way our Creator wanted us to live life - spontaniously and with a sense of adventure, curiosity and excitement.
But what is the way to free ourselves from these prisons?
The answer to that is found with our Creator. We can ask our Creator to help us by surrendering these childhood rules, one at a time, as they pop up in our day to day lives. Creator will take these childhood rules and fears and cast them away forever.
Would you like to read how this is done?
Here is my practical advice for you today. Let us say, for example, you meet an attractive person and would like to get to know him / her better. You make eye contact and the other person responds with a smile. This is reason enough, would you not think, to start a conversation? But your ego intervenes with a rule created during adolescence when you aprocached someone at school in a similar situation and the other person rudely told you to go away. Your child rule created then was to avoid, at all costs, such a situation again. As a reult you avoid this person that just smiled at you and you walk away.
You now decide to surrender this fear and rule to the Creator so that you can be free of such behavior and be able to start a conversation with confidence the next time this occurs to you.
This is what you can say as a silent prayer to the Creator, "Dear Creator, I surrender this fear and child rule of avoiding conversations with newly met people. Pelase take it away from me forever. Thank you, Creator. I love you."
Use this Surrendering Prayer as away to defeat your ego and allow you to trust your initial impulse to start that conversation or to go hang gliding or to say yes to life.
That initial impulse, by the way, is your soul wishing to experince life to its fullest.
I wish you a full life with no regrets.
Listen to What Your Body Is Telling You
Message from Ascended Master Mary Magdalene
Before you were born in between lives you carefully planned, with the help and feedback from advisors and soul family, a Life Path and a Divine Purpose. You wanted to experience certain experiences and to embody a particular type of work here for service to all.
When you were born, however, the intense sense experience of life on Earth caused you to forget all of these plans. Unseen guides and helpers remind now you of your Soul Destiny by placing certain situations and people in your path in hopes of sparking the recognition of Joy that you have found your Divine Purpose. They will also place in your path certain persons and situations that are the opposite of your Divine Purpose so that you can clearly identify and decide that, "No, this is not what I want." Either way you are being helped to remember why you came here.
Many times, during childhood, you can be placed in situations that create a certain programming or fear that will carry into your adulthood. These programs and fears can be an obstacle to you fully realizing your Life Path. when this occurs, the opportunities and synchronicities that are presented to you by your guides and helpers are ignored because you are trapped by your programming and fears. When this occurs, no amount of persons and situations can dislodge you from the trap that these programs and fears have ensnared you.
When this occurs, your Soul Self decides a different method to try to reach you. It will frequently try to talk to you through the body. Here are a few examples.
A woman has a particular problem with lying to others because she is afraid to tell the truth in fear that the others will reject her. Because of this fear she frequently tells others what she thinks they want to hear. Her soul guides and helpers work hard to place her in situations where she is given opportunities to experience others doing the same thing so that she may recognize that this type of behavior is keeping others and her from realizing their True Self.
Unfortunately, the synchronicities designed to bring this to light do not get the woman out of her trap. She still lies to others to placate them. In the process she tortures herself because she is not being her True Self.
Her soul decides that it is now time to talk to the woman's ego through the body. The women receives strep throat and makes it very painful to talk. The message clear: what comes out of your vocal chords is diseased.
A second example is a man that also has a fear of being alone. Because of this fear, he has a tendency to want to control friends and loved ones to avoid being alone. He is constantly scheming about ways to maintain a presence in his friends' and loved ones' lives. With the failure of the man to respond to many synchronicities pointing out this fear, the man's soul now decides to talk to the man's ego through the body. The man starts to notice that his ability to grip and hold onto object has become much weaker. He frequently grips things like cups or plates and will drop them because of the weak grip. The message from the body to the ego in this example is to let go of these people that he is trying to hold onto.
"This isn't quite fair," you might say, "How am I to decipher these messages and how do i get rid of these programs and fears?"
Allow me to offer practical advice.
Search on the internet for Soul Speak. You will find more information. As for removing the programming and fear, ask the Creator to remove this for you. Surrender it to the Creator and it shall be removed.
Listen carefully to you body and it will tell you what you need to act upon.
Happiness is Living without Worries
Message from Mary Magdalene
I watch so many of my sisters and brothers scurry throughout the day worrying incessantly about every little detail in their life. They worry about whether or not they paid the water bill on time or whether or not they bought everything they needed at the grocery store, or worry about what their co-workers think of them and on and on it goes.
And as they worry, their bodies tense up and then the ailments start: indigestion, ulcers, aching pain in the lower back, neck ache, and so on. My brothers and sisters are worrying themselves to death!
And to what end? If I forget something at the grocery store, I can always get it later. Worrying only creates extra suffering.
If my co-workers think ill of me, worrying cannot stop this. Many times, worrying will create more feelings of ill will.
Worrying is, many times, an indicator that we are holding onto fear from a past events that frightened us. When we are frightened by an event as a small child, we will create a pattern of fear that we hold onto for the rest of our lives.
As an adult, this child fear manifests itself as worrying over many things.
I say let go of this fear and the worrying shall stop.
My practical advice for you is, when you recognize that you are worrying, ask the Creator to take away the worrying and fear from all parts of you. Thank the Creator and feel the fear drain from you.
When you drain yourself of worry and fear only one thing remains: happiness.
Message from Mary Magdalene
Focus on what you want; Not what you don't want!
The news on television can be such a distraction. If one watches an entire day of television news one is treated with the same tragedy over and over again. We leave traumatized and the emotional part of us comes to believe that the world is a dangerous place.
Many times the tragedy filling the screen is the product of a handful of people. Out of 7 billion people on the planet the television news mongers wish to focus on a handful of lost souls who do not know better.
What of the 7 Billion who are performing large and small miracles every moment of every day throughout all corners of the world?
Are they not worthy of television news coverage?
How about Internet news. Isn't that a better alternative?
I say that internet news has both. Much of what is called alternative news is just as bleak as the television news. It certainly has more complaining!
I say shut off the news that is designed to instill fear and focus on what you do want. Do you want a world that has people helping people? Then focus your time, energy and talent on people helping people. That is what you will experience.
If you focus on a world of people harming people, then that is the world that you will experience.
We are not here to change the world. We are here to change ourselves. That, in turn, changes the world.
If you wish to be one of those people that wishes to live in a world of love and harmony then focus on love and harmony and you will attract others who also focus on love and harmony and whatever is not love and harmony in your life will drop away over time.
Let go of the focus on what you don't want. Let go of the people and places and things that you don't want. Instead focus on the people, places and things that you do want to have around you and then that will happen to you. Many times this takes courage. If you don't feel you have the strength to do this then ask our Creator for help and help shall appear from the most unlikely places.
This is our Creator's promise to you!
