It’s cold and rainy for the first day in May, as I write this wearing a winter sweater, crank up the heat and my little dog Amber can’t curl herself tight enough into a ball on top of her paw print blanket to get warm. The hot days of summer will be here soon enough, so there is a blessing in appreciating the anticipation of beach days, outdoor festivals and tan lines.
Over the past two years, many times the question people have for their Soul is “am I living my Life the right way? Am I truly connected to the Divine?” So many of us are being challenged, our faith tested. I know how that feels, as I am right there searching in the trenches with an aching heart right along side of you. Yet I know, the Divine is always there with us, loving us, helping us. It may not seem so, but Spirit always shows me this is so…no matter who you are. We are so very deeply Loved and never alone. Separation is an illusion, a very real seeming illusion. It is in the separation that we are compelled to seek our Truth and seek the Divine.
We are in a period of spiritual growth right now-NO ONE is immune, whether you believe in Spirit or not. Some may term this time the Ascension, the Quickening, the Awakening. We don’t have to put a label on it to see and feel we are all being pushed hard out of our comfort zone, lack of security and balance, experiencing peace and calm more in moments rather than days. The old ways of dealing with crisis don’t apply any more. As we are pushed and pulled to change and awaken to a “new earth”, it begins with a new you. It requires you to deeply examine your belief systems, your reactions and what matters most to you.
The one insight that always seems to come up is this: you are here to grow and create. You are loved by the Universe and you are always supported where you are at. Life is not about the doing, it is about being. To learn your personal truth, to learn who you truly are–all parts–Light and Dark–and love all of YOU. Ask for guidance from the Heavens when you are in crisis. Be open and honor what you receive. Be patient if the answer does not come in the manner or timing you request. Talk to your Angels or Guides and form a daily relationship, not just when you have troubles. You are created by G_d in His image and with Love, why don’t you see what you are worth, which is priceless?
From the book “The Greatest Miracle in the World” by OG Mandino it has a chapter “The God Memorandum”, which is a thick chapter that gives hopes and insight from God and sums up the message here. I have shared a few snippets here, as I was guided to include, so that you may know:
Take counsel. I hear your cry.
It passes through the darkness, filters through the clouds, mingles with starlight and finds its way to my heart on the path of a sunbeam… You are my finest creation. I gave you the power to think, to love, to will, to laugh, to imagine, to create, to plan, to speak, to pray. My pride in you knew no bounds. You were my ultimate creation, my greatest miracle.
Thus we come to the fourth law of success and happiness…a power so great that not even my Angels possess it. I gave you the power to choose. You are more than a human being…you are a human becoming. You are capable of great wonders.
Why have you valued yourself in pennies when you are worth a king’s ransom? Why did you listen to those who demeaned you…and far worse…why did you believe them?
You have been born again…but just as before, you can choose failure and despair or success and happiness. The choice is exclusively yours. I can only watch, as before…in pride…or sorrow.
The four laws of happiness are:
Count your blessings. Proclaim your rarity. Go another mile. Use wisely your power of choice.
And one more, to fulfill the other four. Do all things with love…love for yourself, love for all others and love for me. Wipe away your tears. Reach out, grasp my hand, and stand straight. Let me cut the grave cloths that have bound you. This day you have been notified: You are the Greatest Miracle in the World.
Blessings and honor to each of you, a precious treasure. Together in this lifetime, many before, and many more to follow, we are on this journey. With gratitude I thank you for walking this path with me.
