So many spiritual teachers stress gratitude as the ‘key’ to creating a reality that is both joyful and abundant. It is stressed that without gratitude all will be taken from us, and that no more will be given. This is not to argue that point, but merely to add to this equation.

After viewing some work done by Ester Hicks, of the Abraham-Hicks writings, it has come to my awareness that there is something even more fine-tuned in our creating the reality we wish to experience.

It is APPRECIATION.

Gratitude, I have realized, still has a bit of ‘struggle’ left in it, in that when we are grateful, we are remembering a time when we did not ‘have’ what we are now grateful for.

Appreciation however, is seeing the beauty of every situation, even the ones where most would criticize and complain. Instead, it is to see everything in a light of appreciation, free of the struggle or memory of lack or limitation. We see a flower and appreciate it’s beauty for what it is. We see or experience an illness or loss and instead appreciate, realizing that it gave us a new view on what, and who was (and is) important in our lives.

Appreciation is something that just is. We do not however, (as with gratitude) have to have lost something to feel it, nor to receive anything to feel it. It is something that being the Awareness we Really Are, we automatically appreciate all that is in us and around us.

Appreciation is therefore the totality of our Being. It is Being God, for what more does God really ask of us but to breathe, and by doing so, God experiences through us.

Appreciation is therefore, God experiencing Life, rather as an experience instead of just a concept. It is long past giving out or receiving; it is just what IS, for it is complete Awareness.

And WE are that vehicle, that Awareness, that causes our Soul/Life/Love/God to experience Life.

In Appreciation of all is the State of Being of our Highest version and our Grandest vision of ourselves, and we are all really THAT. We are God manifested in physical structure to experience all of Life.

True appreciation is without need or want. It is just Being that Awareness as the most highest vibration of Love. When one looks at the world with that clarity, one is called Master, Christed…Awake.

Blessings!

I remember somewhere I had heard the expression, “….When things are falling apart, they are really falling together.” That was a wonderful statement to hear, as long as nothing was falling apart.

But (and this is crucial)  WHEN things feel or seem to, or ARE falling apart, how many of us can pull ourselves away, even for a moment, and think this way? Not many.  And the question is…..WHY?

Why do we let ourselves get wrapped up in the drama? Why do we let ourselves get caught up in emotional trauma that is not our ‘doing?’ Answer: it IS our doing. We create all of it, with our thoughts, and everything on the outside, is a reflection of what is TRULY going on within.

Hard to accept at times, isn’t it? Well unless we take responsibility for all of it, we cannot change ANY of it. We are pure reflections of God; we are Spirit, not matter. We are an Intelligent Idea in the Sacred Design of the Universe/One Mind/God/ All that Is. We come here for a purpose and everything that comes into our reality is because on some level, we desire to experience it.

When someone is in trouble, it is usually our natural state to wish to help. For the Truth is, what blesses one, blesses all. What you do for someone else, you do for you, for we are all connected….We are All One.

However, this is not to say that we choose ‘consciously’ to suffer or to be victimized; no one does, and that is why it is so important to help when asked.  It is because we get a chance to experience our own Divinity, and that other, whom is ready to end suffering, experiences relief and Love through us.   It is a decision on both our parts……a Soul decision, in order to decide what we wish to be in relation to it all.  That is why all holy collaborations are called “relationships.” (This is all explained in depth in two wonderful books; one is  called ‘When Everything Changes, Change Everything,‘ and the other, ‘Conversations With God, Book 1, both by Neale Donald Walsch).

If we look around us, many of us see that things are not the way we wish;  we sometimes wonder how others even handle their lives, and especially if it appears more challenging than our own. We often day dream about a better life than what we have, no matter what we own or whom we have to share our moments with.

In truth, usually things appear as if they are falling apart because we have been trying to manipulate the Universe. We, within the confines of our physical structures, do all we can to ‘get our way.’ Oftentimes, we really don’t know what ‘our way’ really will lead to. We sometimes marry the wrong person, and live in quiet desperation, waiting to die, but afraid to. We choose a job we do not like because we went to school for it, and feel we cannot change at this late stage of our lifetime. We also close off from those around us, and instead, sometimes choosing to just numb ourselves by using either legal or illegal substances.

And we will do this until we do not.

But the Truth of who we Really Are is Pure Perfection; We are without need; there is nothing we have to do, and no where we have to go; we create every rule and regulation that we live by….and we so often do this to stop ‘Things from Falling Apart….’

Only problem is that it doesn’t prevent that at all. When we try to control a situation, we actually (and usually) cause the “Falling Apart.”

LISTENING with your heart; FEELING with your Soul; DECIDING what you wish to be in RELATION to it all, as your GREATEST and GRANDEST version and vision of yourself, of Who You Really Are (which is Spirit)…that is why we are here, and that is what causes it all to finally “fall together.”

And, if you cannot do this for yourself, do for another, and it will be done onto you as well, for we are all One Mind/Spirit.

Remember, …’Everything’s ok in the end; if it’s not ok, then it’s not the end.’

Blessed Be.

The Ascension for all is here now; no one is left behind. We are closer to the All becoming One again! Such is to celebrate! And yet, many view what is happening on our Dear Mother Earth, and with those whom inhabit this planet as negative. The Media paint a dark future and yet, that is only one way to perceive and focus.

We create. We are both the created and the Creator; which means that we get what we desire if we focus on THAT positive outcome, AND we get what we DO NOT WANT if we focus on what we don’t. Reason being that we get what we FOCUS on all the time, and that is all there is to it!

We do not always get what we want because first of all, if you are in want of it, the Universe takes that literally to mean you are in the experience of WANTING it, not HAVING it…and so you keep getting THAT experience, which is the experience of wanting, but not having. We will always get what we FOCUS on, both bad and good!

Secondly, you may not get what you wish for, because even though it is something you would like, you may also be thinking, (and actually focusing) on all the ways it cannot happen.  And more indirectly, feeling that you cannot figure out how it could happen. With that thought your focus on that ‘it cannot happen’ is what you experience, which results in once again, not getting your desired outcome.

Lastly, you may wish for it, but FEEL you do not deserve it, or that it would be too much effort, or feelings of how can it possibly happen? This feeling just keeps one wanting it but not the experience of having it either.

The simple truth is this: focusing on ANYTHING will bring it to you, including things you do not want or fear.

How to stop your thoughts and feelings from doubt, negativity and fear? Start to think about how and why you carry those negative thoughts. Are they REALLY your OWN? Or are they learned behavior (things you have heard or been told)?

The first and really only step to begin is to start to UNLEARN your beliefs; for beliefs are just thoughts one thinks over and over again, until they become a belief. Strive for stillness; listening to your heart/intuition. And remember, any decision that is based in fear, will lead to more experiences to fear. A wonderful book to ‘unlearn,’ our ‘programmed thinking,’ is ‘Conversations With God, Book 1,‘ by Neale Donald Walsh.

If you find yourself feeling that you cannot achieve this fearlessness, affirm that you are FREE OF FEAR. State it; declare it; ask for assistance to the Universe, Spirit Guides, Angels; whomever you feel comfortable calling, and they must come in the form of assistance. It is Universal Law.

Remember we create everything with our thoughts and feelings.

Therefore, focus on what you wish for, and not what you do not wish to experience.

All are blessed this new year, 2016. And that focus is all that is necessary for all good to begin for everyone!  It already has!

Blessings!

Holidays…traditions…religions…Love; you would think they were meaning all the same thing, but human kind has separated them somehow.
No one is allowed, or rather feels free to express their joy in celebrating something that they grew up with…their traditions. We are all so worried about offending someone, that no one is considering how uncomfortable it may feel to down play, not express, nor share any joy in their own holiday. So worried is everyone in offending, that the biggest offense is not being true to Self. To be Christian and feel awkward to wish someone a Merry Christmas; to be Jewish and not feel comfortable to say, “Happy Hanukkah;” to be Muslim and feel scared and/or victimized for being that, due to some population whom are Muslim using their religion for justifying ungodly deeds.
There is joy in the holidays; in traditions, and yes, especially when religion is used for what in the highest form it was meant to do….to bring people together. All are blessed…it does not matter how one celebrates; if it is done with joy and Love, all religions, traditions and holidays have a rightful place, and no one must be offended if that person wishes to express their joy in saying, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, or any other way to spread cheer and joy.
The truth is that there is only ONE; whether you honor that ONE ENERGY, called Love, God, Allah, Buddha, in whatever way you choose, the point is that we honor and value each other through our religious beliefs.
With Love and Blessings to All….Let us Celebrate Life, which in the highest form, celebrates each other….and ourselves; there truly is only One Being, sitting here, split into billions upon billions of countless Souls…and WE ARE THAT!
From my Personal Tradition…I wish all a Very Merry Christmas; To All whom celebrate in their own Traditions that may differ from mine, I wish you the most Blessed, Peaceful, and Happy Holiday!

Watching once again the movie, “What the Bleep Do We Know?” brought some important realizations to me that I did not originally ‘catch,’ the first time I saw it at the Valley Arts theater in Tempe, Arizona in 2004.

The movie is a great introduction to Quantum Physics, and addresses much information on how our emotions affect our physiology. In this present article, I would like to address the information regarding our physiology in part given by Dr. Candace Pert, whom was one of several doctors in the movie.

We all hear how our emotions cause physical illness, and oftentimes this information is pushed away or not given much thought. I believe this is in part because we do not understand the how or why of it! Living in what appears to be a ‘solid universe,’ things just seem to be what they are, without seemingly much of a way we can change what we experience. It all seems so concrete and immovable! (For more information, please view ‘Heal Your Body,’ by Louise Hay)

Quantum Physics basically states a new premise; that our feelings and our thoughts do indeed create the universe, our reality, our entire existence, including our health, and it does this by where we place our attention. It states that there are countless outcomes/possibilities to every event and situation (and that it all exists at the same time) and that by focusing on a certain one, (whether ‘good or bad,’ whether it is what we want or DO NOT want), we will attract it right to us, experiencing it in our ‘life,’ hence, it becomes our ‘reality.’ That is why it is said that our reality is ‘subjective;’ meaning it becomes what we give it meaning to become, or plainly stated, we live what we expect, think, and feel.

So what has this to do with our physiology? It was stated somewhat this way:

How we feel brings on what we call emotions. As an example, if we feel fear, our hypothalamus gland starts producing what is called peptides (which as defined are compounds consisting of two or more amino acids linked in a chain). Now the interesting information found in the movie, (which was stated by Dr. Candace Pert in the movie, ‘What the Bleep Do We Know?’)is that whatever feeling/emotion we are experiencing, that exact peptide is manufactured at that time and is pumped into our body via our blood stream to all our cells. Therefore, if we feel fear, ‘fear’ peptides are delivered to each cell, where receptors are present on each cell wall to basically lock into place with the corresponding peptide. What this does is cause a disturbance in the cell itself, affecting it’s performance and it’s delicate balance. And if the cell should divide into a ‘sister cell,’ the new cell will have less receptors for oxygen and nutrients, because the inner structure has been affected by that fear peptide.

Fear and anger will produce those peptides that will affect our body chemistry via our cells in a negative way. Joy and Love peptides will enhance our cells, strengthening our immune system.

We literally are creating our body chemistry with our feelings and thoughts!

This is important as it explains WHY gratitude does indeed heal as does Love and Joy. It also explains why our negative emotions indeed can cause physical illness.

We now understand that how our physiology is created is from the inside…out, but what about our actual reality?  It is created the same way?

The same ‘stuff’ that we are made of (on a molecular level, protons and electrons) are also what the entire Universe is made of; from a tree to a rock to the animals and plants….and to us; all are the same if one goes to a molecular level…all are the same energy! Therefore as we feel, we literally transmit through ‘frequencies” that match up with other frequencies in the Universe and produce that experience to whatever we are feeling.  In other words, the molecules, electrons, and protons that are within us, also have an effect on the molecules, electrons, and protons, on what appears to be the ‘outside’ of us, or what we call our ‘reality.”  Thus our reality is created from within.

Einstein said it best: “Everything is Energy; match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get it; there can be no other way; this is not philosophy, this is physics!”

What we feel transmits and matches another frequency carrying a specific outcome; we do this whether conscious of it or not; we all do it and we always will, for that IS Life/Love/God.

Because we are all made of the same ‘stuff’ (molecules, protons, electrons, etc.), we affect our world; hence creating our reality as we go along. (For more information, please view a video which can be found on youtude.com called Dr. Quantum’s slit experiment. It was also conducted by an actual scientist in Europe and is based on his findings). It proves that the molecules, electrons, and protons react to ‘the Observer,’ which is what we are.

God is Life. God is Love…and we are THAT.

With this information, think what you can do now, with your health, wealth, your life.

We are both the created and the Creator, for God/Life/Love is living through us and is US.

For the Truth is We Are ALL ONE there truly is only one BEING sitting here..and we are THAT…it can be no other way!

Blessings!

The devil fools with the best laid plans…’

How many times have we thought, we had it all going our way, but something happened and it didn’t work out as planned? The ‘devil fools with the best laid plans,’ is an old quotation for that which represents the thought of when things don’t work out, and we just cannot figure out why; hence, some blame something ‘sinister,’ such as a ‘devil,’ for messing things up when we planned so carefully.

This concept not only stops us from taking responsibility for ourselves, but worst yet, it keeps us powerless, supporting a feeling that there is just nothing we can do about it, because it’s someone else’s fault, and we cannot control them or that situation!

In truth, there is ‘no devil,’ except in our thoughts that something outside of us is causing a problem for us.

For discussions purpose, let us for this moment look at this quotation in a different context: why not perceive the notion that when things don’t go according to plan it is representative of our own Higher Self protecting us from what really wouldn’t be the Highest and Best outcome for us. Usually and eventually we ‘see’ why it was good for us that whatever we had originally planned didn’t workout; and that is usually when we THEN say, instead of ‘the devil fools with the best laid plans, we will say, “God was taking good care of me for THAT not to happen!

This could come in the form of not marrying that person, not investing money into a certain company, etc…..sort of like, “thank God for unanswered prayers…” That quote is the same thing, in that what we feel is the best plan, or pray for something we wish would make us happy, many times really doesn’t. And when we do not get it, we blame the ‘devil,’ for messing it all up, or we blame God, for not answering our prayers; that is at first, until we see the ‘big picture,’ and we then realize that it was a blessing it didn’t happen at all!  That is where the term, ‘thank God for Unanswered Prayers,’ originated!

What if it is all just a matter of our own personal Guidance System, (Our Higher Self, God, Universe, The Great I Am, etc.) taking good care of us, instead?
When we thank God/Universe/All That Is for taking good care of us, isn’t that all the gratitude we really need to express? Doesn’t every Master know this? Isn’t that why a Master is always calm and happy no matter what is happening? It is because they know that whatever happens is the Highest and Best for their own personal evolution and the evolution of All, and that it is all sent to them, by THEM (their Higher Self) for only GOOD.

With this realization, can there really be a ‘devil’ ever fooling with the best laid plan? No, or course not! There is only Good; and if something doesn’t happen that we think we have the perfect plan for, it really means it’s not really ‘the best laid plan!’

What is really happening, is that there is something better that we must decide (yes, that is, to CHOOSE) to trust that we are being given opportunities endlessly; to evolve into the Highest, Grandest, Greatest Version and Vision we ever had of ourselves; (for more information, please read ‘Conversations With God, Book 1,’ by Neale Donald Walsch) and that no one can neither destroy our ‘best laid plan,’ nor can prayers ever go unanswered…not when God is on our side; for truly God is on everyone’s side, always, in all ways; for there is only God/Universe…Love.

Blessings!

So often it feels as if we do not have a connection with God. We stress about daily problems, fearful sometimes of impending possible doom upon us even before it happens; thinking so hard about negative possibilities that have not occurred that it often feels as if they have already happened.

To think about the good that can come is often not a thought. We are usually afraid to think positive because we somehow think it cannot be true. Why is that? Why do we go to the negative outcome first?

We come into this world to some degree, asleep; asleep in that we do not remember from whence we have come. We do this on purpose. We create a ‘relativity field’ and literally ‘play.’ We play make- believe. We imagine, and then it appears. It does not appear immediately (that happens in a different frequency in another dimension), but we definitely do imagine (image) and create. This ‘playground’ can seem very real at times, and if we allow ourselves to be ‘in the world’ too much, it can sometimes become very scary indeed! But we create this ‘amnesia’ so that it CAN seem real; how else could we, so to speak, play the game with such intensity, enthusiasm, and innocence?

When we tire of this ‘game,’ we desire freedom, which comes in the form of many avenues; for freedom is Peace, serenity, abundance, Love, etc. The statement, ‘to be in the world, but not of it,’ (as the Christ stated) is an experience of enlightenment, which brings about all those higher aspects of life, experienced and enjoyed.

Whether it is consciously or unconsciously that we create, depends upon our own personal evolutionary choices; for we create regardless of whether we realize it or not! It is simply a matter of Awareness.  And Awareness indeed brings upon Remembrance; remembering Who We Really Are! (for more information on this subject, please read “Conversations With God,” Book 1, by Neale Donald Walsh)

We create, sending ourselves messages in the form of people, situations, and yes, even writings such as these! We are all capable of remembering who we Really Are (Spirit), and we are all capable of receiving the messages that truly come from within. Therefore, we are all capable of Enlightenment! No one is left out, for that is what we ALL are up to!

It is simply a choice as to when this will occur in our reality.

To remember, therefore, is to make a choice; to decide to allow that Awareness to become our experience.

When Jesus Christ said, “ask and it shall be received/answered; knock and it shall be opened,’ that was in reference to choosing. Creators are what we ARE; Awareness is a choice; how we create and what we create is just a matter of whether we do it with purpose; what kind of feelings (negative or positive), and deciding to become aware of what we are choosing to create.

What is your intention? What is the feeling you are experiencing? That will tell you what you are in store to receive from what you are now ‘creating.’

This is more than thought; this is about FEELING. We must actively and on purpose (being Aware) make a choice, and then a decision to Be Awareness. Allowing yourself to ‘remember’ who you Really Are; what you are truly capable of, and in remembrance of the Blessed Being of Light we all truly are is a CHOICE….a choice to be in a state of REMEMBRANCE..

For to Be in that state is to remember, for as Jesus had said, ‘to do this in Remembrance of Me, meaning, when you honor yourself you will choose to remember who you Really Are, and in Being that, you honor Self; you honor God.

Therefore to ‘Be in the World, but not of it,” is to know yourself, which IS to KNOW GOD….and ‘Heaven On Earth’ is then experienced, here and now.

Blessings!

I read in Neale Donald Walsch’s book, ‘Conversations With God, Book 1,’ that blessed are the Self-Centered, for they shall know God, and at first I could not understand; how could that possibly be true? That statement went against everything that we are taught!

I started to ponder the thought he then suggested in his book, which was:

What if everything we thought was true, was not? And what if everything we thought was not true, was?

What would happen to our reality as we know it?

What I believe would occur would be a shift in our perspective, and that would change EVERYTHING! It would most likely produce a sudden awareness; but what does this all have to do with being Self-Centered? EVERYTHING! For It is all about focusing on Self. So often we are focused on the other; what is the other being, doing, having? What is the other wanting, needing, desiring?

What happens to ourSELVES? We somehow lose who we are when in a relationship, because somehow we thought we would become MORE! Instead, we become LESS; less fulfilled, less capable and oftentimes, feeling less loved. (also from Neale’s same book mentioned above)

Self-Centeredness can be looked upon as being very selfish and not caring about others, but that is NOT how it is to be understood or used in this context. Self-Centeredness in the highest sense, is to be centered on Self. What is SELF BEING in relation to a certain situation? Is Self being Love or fear? For there is no other question that ever needs to be answered. If one decides to be Love, everything heals and is resolved, whether we stay in a relationship or leave; in whatever decision we make about ANYTHING!

As Mr. Walsch states in ‘Conversation With God, Book 1,’ the question comes up with this: If deciding with Love, who is the Love for? We have been taught that it is to Love the other; to sacrifice oftentimes our dignity, integrity, even our joy for the beloved other. But this is NOT Love, for it is not love of SELF, and one cannot Love anyone, if they do not even Love themselves!

Many will use this information of it being ok to be self-centered to justify wrongful deeds, whatever one may see as wrong. But when deciding from the HIGHEST statement of Being Love, ungodly acts never are conceived of, nor done. And why is this true? It is because the Love of Self becomes the Love for another, for we are ALL ONE.

The point of this text is to identify what Self-Centeredness really is, in the purest sense. It is actually the ONLY WAY TO TRULY LIVE…Every Master knows this and has done so. Always deciding what they wished to be, and then choosing LOVE.

In our highest, grandest, and greatest version and vision of ourselves, isn’t it really the most loving way to always come from a place of being Centered In Self, which IS LOVE, and to BE that Love that we all are; to come from a place of THAT when interacting with OTHERS!? Can you think of any other way to really live?

Therefore, as Neale Donald Walsh wrote, blessed are the Self Centered, for they shall know God.

In other words, they will then see GOD in all, for there IS ONLY GOD.

Blessings!

Aging; a process we create because we think that is just how it has to be.

How can we not? We see aging everywhere; from our parents, peers; even our pets; everything appears to age.

We watch trees get larger; homes showing wear and tear; cars depreciating, and any other material/physical creation we may observe.

But what is aging? Some call it a process that is ‘natural;’ that it is inevitable; others address the chemical structure of why, and most basically just accept it as what it appears to be; a mystery.

I have watched many people grow old (both physically and emotionally) and what really strikes me is how so many either ‘age’ before their time, or seemingly stay emotionally immature! Very few age ‘well,’ or just not at all!

Some don’t even seem to age in that they behave the same as when they were young in years. I know of one friend I met in 1974, when I was in college, back almost 41 years ago and I can see the physical changes somewhat, but the Spirit; that laugh and the glimmer in his eyes cannot hide that the person I met back such a long time ago is and always will be, truly timeless. It is our nature; when we see the TRUTH of who we Really are, that is when we see the Spirit, which is the TRUTH OF US ALL!

Yes, we may gather wisdom; certainly life experiences, and some heartaches to go along with that life experience; life may impact us somewhat, but is that really what it means to age? Physically perhaps, however, the Spirit is still strong, youthful, vibrant, and wise…AGELESS; for truly we are all timeless.

It has been stated that with age comes wisdom, but that is not always true either. I have witnessed many whom are older, but none the wiser; behaving as if still in high school, playing childish mind game, as if they had all the time in the world. And sadly, still afraid to give, afraid to let go; still living as if they had just ‘arrived.’ And then, it’s all suddenly over.

So really, what is aging? Maybe the best way to look at it, to perceive aging, is not to give it a thought at all! We are not speaking of resistance, for that will just keep ‘aging,’ in place. Rather, why not look at it straight on, seeing through it for what it is, which is an ILLUSION.

Remember, illusions can be seen, but are not real, as nothing IS real but an all Loving Energy, called God/Love/Source/All That IS/The Great I AM. Aging is therefore an illusion as is everything else we see with the naked eye.

This is not an argument for giving up on people and situations if you feel stuck or if you feel that since it’s all an illusion, why try? Rather let us choose to view people and situations with new eyes; to perceive them as more than they are appearing to be will only produce that result; It will only serve to enhance our experience of them, and of Life; for as we perceive everything and everyone as MORE, so shall they become THAT.

If one chooses, Aging can be thought of as a process of enhancing the life experience; for to age brings WISDOM, SERENITY, COURAGE, and most importantly, if choosing it to be perceived as an opportunity, it CAN be used also to decide and declare who we wish to be in one’s HIGHEST, GRANDEST VISION AND GREATEST VERSION ONE EVER HAD OF ONESELF; it is an opportunity to enhance LOVE; both Love of Self and of others.

The kindest and most beneficial way to look at life is to realize that all of us are aging, but to decide to perceive it differently and positively.  And how would that be?  One way that is both useful, fun, and life enhancing is to choose to perceive ourselves and others as ‘the Wisdom Gatherers.’ We are all THAT! We come onto this planet for to experience LIFE, and we usually start with such anticipation; ripe with enthusiasm, and longing for experience! Somewhere around 45-60, many lose their passion, and settle for so much less, whether it be regarding a relationship, career, or just for life in general. (excerpt in part from ‘Conversations With God, Book 1, Neale Donald Walsch) And isn’t that what aging is truly all about as most view it; one that has lost the drive and passion to live?

It is said we all have to ‘age,’ but that usually means that we are expected to eventually give up on life; to no longer find the joy and laughter; the beauty in Love.

That never should never, nor does it ever have to be that outcome experienced.

And as always, it is a choice we all get to make.

So, let’s end with this question; a good question that will help stop ‘aging’ in it’s tracks:
(at least in the heart and mind)

How old would YOU be IF you didn’t know how old you were?

Blessings!

Discouraged? Heart-broken? Shocked at someone whom you thought would always be there for you, and seems so alien you hardly recognize them? How do we handle that? When these situations arise, it can be so hard…so challenging to go through. We remember all the Love that was there and wonder (if already aware that we bring to ourselves EVERYTHING) what were we thinking??? And most importantly….What were we FEELING?  We must remember foremost before anything else that we did nothing wrong in terms of our thoughts and feelings; we are where we are in our own evolution, and everything is for our grander good.  It is all a process, so to speak, and most importantly a grand and glorious opportunity to display and experience who we REALLY ARE, which is a Spirit, having a human experience.  And what we wish to BE in relation to it all, is the whole purpose of any relationship, whether platonic or romantic.

But we do all understand that there is pain, and how to address this ‘opportunity,’ as it sure doesn’t feel like that when it is going on, does it!?

We must first address the feeling from all these negative emotions brought about by what we perceive as someone else’s actions; it ultimately brings about a feeling of LOSS. We feel empty, alone, and sadly; hence, very unloved. Unity seems shattered, as does hope of it ever being better, or that feeling of connection ever restored.

What DO we DO? It is more a question of what do we wish to BE about all of it! So many offer encouragement such as it will pass; give it time, and probably the one we fear to hear the most, which is that we just must accept that things changed. How hard it is to hear that or conceive that it will never be the same again?

Neale Donald Walsch wrote several wonderful books, ‘When Everything Changes, Change Everything.’ and ‘Home With God,’ Basically, it is offered that Change is ALWAYS GOOD, no exceptions to this rule. Change is growth; change is evolution, and thus, Change is LIFE.

I no longer believe that we must heal from anything, as if one looks closely, VERY CLOSELY at EVERYTHING, there is nothing to heal because we cannot truly ever be damaged. It is all an illusion coming from a perception of how we CHOOSE to view any situation we may find hurtful.

Is change necessary? Absolutely! It is the one constant…truly a Divine Dichotomy, as change must happen for us to grow AND, it is the only thing that we can truly depend on. Consequently, that is where we find our Peace.

Whatever is happening in our life, we must embrace it; no matter how painful;  it is leading us somewhere, and that place is evolution. Even being hurt, we are to remember, no one can experience forgiveness, unless there is someone to forgive. (From another wonderful book by Walsch, ‘The Little Soul and the Sun‘).

Moving forward is just that…we must MOVE; move in the direction of our dreams; choose JOY, no matter where we are or with whom. We will eventually experience another change; a change that will bring hope, peace, and always Love.

It just is the way it is, as there is really only Love. We sometimes can pinch ourselves off from it pretty well, but it is always there, as the Sun sits behind a cloud. Wait for that ‘cloud to pass;’ never give up hope, for remember, change is always good, and truly Loss once again will transform into gain.

That is Universal law; for as Issac Newton, the great physicist stated, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Therefore, wait for that opposite reaction from the change and the pain that has happened, to occur.

Change IS always good! Embrace that, and fear, pain, sadness WILL transform. Remember to recognize the pain; that usually is all it takes to move away from it. Pivot your emotions during this trial by asking oneself, what one truly desires,  and focus on that. (Information from Abaham-Hicks)

The transform will and always does eventually occur.

Blessings!
