Doing Something Different

In this time of giving and receiving, try something different. Instead of buying things just for the sake of giving, stop for a moment and think. What can you do for someone to make them happy and lift their spirit? Many people are despondent during the holiday season because they aren't able to meet their needs. What could you do differently that would make a difference in someone's life? Let's all be creative in our holiday giving this year. Make someone smile with joy because they know that they are truly loved and cared for. Today, do something different. What can you do to make someone's day a little more special? Be the angel that you would want someone to be for you.
Nature has it's own way of celebrating the holiday season...
(It seems the more I think I understand the holiday season, I have a harder time grasping why we get so caught up in the marketing of the season. Buying becomes frantic and overwhelming. It's nice to be away from the city, as it turns into a shopping frenzy. It may be little rural where I am right now, but walking on the beach beats pushing someone aside to get the latest technology wonder. I wish you all a peaceful evening.)

Just Passing Through

A lifetime feels like it is forever. When you say that you want to make a difference in the world or that you want to help others, tomorrow seems to be the best time for you. Tomorrow is when most of you have time to do it all. You are actually lucky to have one lifetime to achieve all that you'd like to do. It may be difficult to understand, but you are just passing though this lifetime. It is up to you whether you want to make a difference today. You never know how many tomorrows there are in your lifetime. It is important to treasure every moment in your life. Don't leave what you can accomplish today for tomorrow, for you are just passing through. Today, do something that you've never done before. Think of something that you've always put till tomorrow and do it by the end of the year. Instead of letting life pass you by, pay attention to life's miracles as you journey on.
There are moments when time doesn't exist...
(I know that time is only a concept, but it does seem to change depending what I'm going through. When I'm so busy, it seems to fly that I can't keep up with what I'm doing. On the other hand, when life isn't going so good, time seems to drag on forever. As I'm getting older I realize how precious time is and how much more I want to accomplish before I die. But again is there ever an end to what we want to do in our lifetime. The answer is no.)

Reflecting The Spirit Within

You are a perfect spirit and you have the best of intentions, but are your actions and words reflecting your compassionate self? At times, we are sadden by what we see and hear. We know the spirit that is within you and the goodness that always shines brightly, but the fears that you harbor holds you prisoner at this time. You are much more than what you present to yourself and others. If you could see your potential as we forsee for you, then you would have a life filled with so many opportunities. Reflect the spirit within and you will see the love and compassion that surrounds you. Today, just be yourself. Do not let others convince you that you are less than what you are. Start believing in yourself and your gifts. When you trust yourself and where you are at this moment, then you are ready to be at peace with your spirit.
A Reflection of the Holiday Season...
(I try to be a reflection of my spirit, but I then wonder just how perfect my spirit is. My spirit and I are often times at a discord of what is the best for me. When I'm not the nicest or say things that are negative, I have to scold myself that this is not the compassionate way I have committed my life to be. Living a life that reflects my spirit is an ongoing challenge, but I hope to win the tug of war.)

Hiding In The Shadows

No matter where you are, we are besides you. Although you may feel that you are living amongst the shadows, there is always a glimmer of light that shines from within you. It is this light that keeps your spirit alive. You may think that you don't have control over your life, but know that if there is hope then all is possible. If hiding in the shadows give you comfort at this time, then that is where you need to be. But when you are ready to begin believing in yourself, we will be waiting for you. Today, find comfort in the shadows, for it's in the shadows that you will find yourself. It doesn't matter where you are, for you continue to walk your path towards your destiny. 
There is beauty in the starkness of nature...
(When I'm going through a difficult time, I want to be by myself to process what is happening in my life. But I am surrounded by angels who were sent here to watch over me. They fill my life with their positive light. I am blessed to have all them in my life. With them by my side, I don't need to hide in the shadows for their light shines my way through the darkness.)

Forgiving Yourself

This is a day of forgiveness. Forgiving not only others but yourself of all misunderstandings. This is not the time to have ill will towards anyone including yourself. There is an era of prosperity that is coming soon and you must prepare for it's coming. With negative thoughts harboring within your spirit there will be no room for anything else. You are so easily swayed that others will do you harm that your eyes have not seen good will for many a day. If you are not open to miracles that are meant for you, how will you see the opportunities that are coming. Forgiving yourself is the first step in cleansing your soul. There is no sense in reliving the past, for it only ties you to a time long gone. Take a chance that the future will be a better time for you. Have faith in yourself and trust that you have learned from your mistakes. Today, forgive all that cloud your vision. Be free from thoughts that weigh heavy on your spirit. It is time to cleanse yourself and move forward with love and compassion for all.
Flowers heal the soul...
(Forgiving others is easier said than done. In theory, I can see where forgiveness would help my spirit but it's difficult when my mind can't get passed a moment of pain. Anger comes and goes. Even hurt seems to dull in time, but pain lingers far longer than even I thought possible. Forgiveness comes slowly, but when it does, my spirit will be free to be all things possible.)

Finding Yourself Amongst The Chaos

We often times see you becoming distracted when your life becomes chaotic. You lose focus of your priorities when you are overwhelmed with your daily practices. What was a life of new experiences has become a carefully structured routine. You know what is expected of you since you do the same things every day. You have built a life that is safe and comfortable. But what are you learning? Most of you avoid difficult situations, but it is through the chaos and the unknown that you find out the strengths you have within you. As you challenge yourself to overcome the unexpected, you will learn that you have what it takes to conquer all. Today, be the person you want to be. You may not trust in yourself, but know that all is possible if you are who you are meant to be.
Sometimes we forget how unique we all are...
(I understand how adversity brings out the best from me, but I wonder why it takes a challenging situation to bring out what may have stayed hidden. I guess it comes from playing it safe, but the universe has it's work cut out with me. I am working to be calm during the chaos.)

It's A TIme For Wishes And Dreams

It is at this time of the year when you believe that all is possible. When your wishes and dreams seem closer to becoming a reality than any other time of the year. It is not that the other times of the year are more difficult than it is now, but you seem to be able to have more vision during the holiday season. It may be because you become more child-like, giving yourself permission to hope for what seems to be the impossible. If this is what comes of the holiday season, then it is a good thing for mankind. When everyone is filled with positive energy than there is healing that can be done. Our energy always flow through you throughout the year. Know that your wishes and dreams can come true if you only believe that all is possible. Today, enjoy the holiday festivities. Write a letter to yourself, asking to fulfill the wishes you have only been dreaming of. If all is possible than in the coming year they will come true.
Fairies aren't the only ones who can make our wishes come true...
(I do believe that more wishes and dreams come true during the holiday season. I'm not sure if it's because we get caught up with the festivities that we let down our guard, but people do seem happier. I wish we can spread this charitable feeling throughout the year. I think I'll make a wish tonight.)

There Are Miracles

Take away all that surrounds you and you will see the miracles that sparkle in the dark. They are diamonds in the rough. It is not for us to point them out or to leave them in the open for all to see. They will be found when your eyes open to what seems to be insignificant. Miracles are not for one person to hoard but for all to experience. What you see will not be the same for others. Everyone who is blessed with experiencing a miracle will have a  different story to tell. It is not the miracle that changes your life but the spiritual enlightenment that happens to your soul. Let the miracles in your life, light your way. Today, be true to yourself and the miracles in life will find their way to you.
Let's wait together for miracles to come our way...
(Wouldn't it be nice to share our miracles with people that we love and care for. At first, I thought it would be pretty special to even experience a miracle, then I knew in my heart that sharing that same miracle with others would be even more spectacular. I think that miracles are the universe's way of giving us glimpses of how life could truly be.)

Being Thankful

You may say prayers of thanks but to what are you thankful for. Take a moment to reflect upon that. What are you most thankful for? If you were to do without, what of which you are most grateful would you suffer the most being without. You are all different, so it is difficult for us to tell you what you need in order to survive in your world, but it is something that you must one day think about. For when there is an understanding of what there is to be thankful for, then you can truly be at peace. There will come a time when your life will be overflowing with love and compassion, that is when the universe will be one with all. Being thankful is a selfless act that you experience when there is nothing more to ask for. Today, what is it that you need? If you are living a fulfilled life, then you can be truly thankful. Life is simple, when you live a life with the purpose of helping others.
The sun is always shining behind the clouds...
(It's not easy following where my spirit leads me. It's not good enough to know the plot if no one else understands the storyline. Often times, it's as if I'm alone on my journey to...I don't know yet where I am going. I am thankful for being. Being able to get up each morning. Being able to have wonderful children, Being able to do something I enjoy. Being is a good place to be at this time.)

It Begins With The Spirit

It is so easy to get distracted and lose focus on where you are going. In life there are many times when you stumble because the road becomes unfamiliar and difficult. Although you try to be careful about the decisions you make, there are still doubts that linger in your mind. You may never find the answers for which you seek, but it is in your questions that you find your way. Life never responds the way that you intend it to, but it does teach you lessons that stay with you no matter where you end up to be. It is while on your journey that you find out who you are and whether you are moving forward on your path. Your true journey begins with your spirit leading the way. Today, you will meet others that may not understand your journey. It is not for you to explain yourself to others, but it is for you to believe in what you are doing and trust that you are where you are meant to be. Live with the intent that your spirit is your guiding light leading you on your path to discovery.
In life there are always stepping stones to where you need to go...
(Sometimes it gets discouraging even for a person like myself who has ongoing faith. My plans are often times not the plans of the universe so there is a disconnect. It may not seem to have much impact but because we are all so interconnected, this is the way things work. I have to remember it is not in the lesson that I learn, for lessons are often times repeated over and over in my lifetime. It is more what my initial reaction is to the lesson that gets my attention. I think that's when I am truly honest.)

Passing Through The Curtain

There is a moment in time when you are between sleep and being awake, that you are open to all that exists. There is no fear blocking you of all that is unknown. You are open to all because there is a sheer curtain that now protects your dreams from the harsh realities of life. It's a place that all is possible and the impossible no longer exists. Although this surreal moment soon begins to fade as you awaken, it will always be with you as a faded memory. Use this memory to propel you towards the dreams you wish to turn into reality. Passing through the curtain of your dreams occur more often than you can ever imagine. Today, be a part of your dreams. What if all was possible. Live your life as if all you desire is your new reality.
Heaven is only a cloud away...
(I have often wondered if what I experience in my dreams are prophetic since they come to pass as time goes by. But then aren't we all intuitive in are own way. I guess it's what we use with the information we receive that's important. Are we more loving and compassionate because of what we know? I think the more I know, the more I know that I have so much more to learn. I await my next dream.)

Walking In The Shadows

We walk amongst you in the shadows. Although you need to hide in the dark, do not fear for we are always with you. It may seem that you were born fighting for your survival, but your spirit was never in jeopardy. You have always been protected because you have shown strength in how you have been living your life. With bravery, you walk the streets which have been broken by war. It may seem you are one of many, who may not have a home tomorrow. But it is within you to survive for your spirit will see you through life's adversity. Remember that walking in the shadows does not hide the light of your soul. Today, lift your face for you need the warmth of the sun to rejuvenate your spirit. Say a prayer to all who are blessed with life's breath and give thanks for you are one of the blessed ones.
There is beauty where you least expect it...
(Sometimes I need to be reminded how blessed I am. For there are those who are struggling everyday to be safe. It is definately a time to put things in to perspective. There is no excuse for me not to live my life with purpose.)

Overcoming Your Fears

Do not be so hard on yourself that you are less than perfect. Do not dispare that all is lost because you can't overcome what is presented to you. Life is a continuing experience which you go through to learn what you need to in order to grow. Your struggles are our own, but like children you will learn by falling before you stand. The fears that you create are your first line of defense in keeping you safe. It is understandable, but one day what you fear the most you will need in order to walk through your journey. Remember all that surrounds you is a part of the universe. Look deeply within yourself to discover why you fear as you do. What is preventing you from attaining what you deserve? If you could see yourself as we do, you will see how perfect you are. Today, think about what makes you happy. Are you living your life so that you are at peace with yourself and others? Can you overcome the fears that prevent you from having the life which you were meant to lead? You can achieve all that you have dreamt about if you believe that all is possible.
 There is beauty all around us...
(It seems as if my fears exist just to challenge me in living my life in peace. Theory versus real life. It's so easy to say that I've overcome my fears, but I think that I continue to struggle with my fears throughout life so that I can use that moment to reflect on my feelings about certain issues. When I think everything is going well, my fears remind that all is not perfect. Life is about taking one step at a time and trying to live life with purpose.)

Peace A State Of Mind

If you were to reflect upon your life at this moment, how many of you would be able to say that you are at peace? Peace is a state of mind and is with you no matter what turmoil is going on in your life. It is a feeling that lay deep within you that can not be shaken so easily. Although we hear your prayers for a peaceful day, we hope that soon you will understand that by living with love and compassion in your heart, you will always be at peace. Peace is a state of mind that will help you throughout your life. It is during this time of year that we wish peace upon you and your loved ones. Today, be at peace with yourself and others. It is time to take responsibility of who you are and where you are going. There are no wrong decisions in life for everything works out for a reason. When you are at peace with yourself, you will find that destiny has always guided your way.
Peace is everywhere we are...
(I think a person can spend all their life wishing for a peaceful life. But peace may come only if you are true to yourself. That is challenging when you're living your life for everyone but yourself. In the past three years, I've had many conversations with myself about being true to myself. At this point, I'm happy with who I am and where I am. I hope that as time goes by that I'm able to spread the peace that I feel with everyone that I touch in my life.)

The Perfect Spirit

Although you may have a perfect spirit, there is still debris that clutter the mind. If you were to listen closely to your spirit, there would be no room for fears or doubts. For trust would abound because of what you know to be the truth about the universe. There are few of you that walk their journey with absolute faith that they are what the universe has blessed them to be. There is no room for doubt when you are comfortable with who you are. We give you the strength to rid yourself of your fears, but there are those who hold tightly to what they think may slip through their fingers. Seek out the answers you are looking for, for it is in your quest that you will find out where you belong. And it is in finding your place in life that you will discover the spirit within that has always been perfect. Today, be who you feel you are meant to be. By not compromising your values or morals to those who try to influence you, you will begin to feel the strength that grows stronger every day. Know that it is in the question, not the answer that you will find peace.
  Finding a sense of peace walking along the Boston shoreline...
(I find that my journey is confirmed everyday. To what purpose am I here? Actually what does it matter if I know my purpose. Would I change the direction of my life? I don't think so because I walk with faith. I truly am where I should be and if I am not then I will move where I am supposed to be. If we trust that the universe has a bigger plan than we could ever imagine, think of all the things we could accomplish. If I have any doubts, I share them with the angels that surround me. I am blessed.)

In The Silence

In the silence, you will hear our voice. In the silence, you will hear the voices of peace. In the silence, you will hear the children cry. In the silence, you will hear the world as it begins to heal. In the silence, you will hear those who were lost and now are found. In the silence, you will hear your own heart beat. In the silence, you will understand all that was not ready for you to hear. We await as you learn to be quiet within yourself, so that you can hear beyond the silence which can be at first so deafening. It is in the silence that all who are ready to begin to ascend find their first step into the grace of the beyond. Today, cherish the day. You are given the gift of life. Appreciate what you so freely take for granted. There may be things you don't understand yet, but it doesn't really matter for you are who you are meant to be at this time. This is a moment to be at peace with yourself. No more, no less.
Nature is always at peace with it's self...
(Today I received a Tibetan flag which extends so much more than the good fortune it represents to be. Because it was given to me by someone who is not only a caring person, but she is also a true healer. Not only in the physical sense, but she heals the spirit and the energy that surrounds us that sometimes needs repair. Not knowing that yesterday, I was listening to a lesson in the compassion and selflessness. How perfect to receive a healing flag to help me through my journey of peace. The universe connects us all, if we let it. Diana (yes, I will use your name for it holds power in itself), although we are an island apart, you are now a part of my sangha. Thank you and peace be with you and your spirit.)

Asking Of Yourself

It is in your nature to ask for help from the universe, but are you willing to ask of yourself. To put as much energy into reaching your life's desire as you do in saying your prayers to those who you believe in. Is it easier for you to say your prayers than to commit yourself to a life of struggle?Sometimes when we ask for help we are taking the responsibility of what we are asking others to do. We are here to help and guide you to becoming who you were meant to be, but part of your journey is to seek the help you want from the spirit within yourself. You have everything that you seek from others. Today, be yourself. Look no further than within, to do the work that is being asked. You are no less nor no more than the universal energy that flows through your spirit. You are perfect in the eyes of the universe.
Sometimes it's difficult to make up my mind...
(I think I'm so used to asking for help that I forget that I'm the one that usually ends of doing all the work. It feels good to pray because it makes me feel that there is someone out there that is listening to my problems. I understand that no one can truly know what I'm going through besides myself, that's why prayers are essential for my sanity. I believe that the universe, at some point becomes one with all beings. I think I'll just wait until what the universe has revealed to me comes to pass.)

The Freedom To Choose

It is a matter of perspective how you view your life. We give you the freedom to choose the path you walk and how difficult your journey will be. Although you make think that your fate is sealed and that life is more of a struggle than you would like it to be, it is still your choice as to what you'd like to do. It would seem that the lessons get more challenging if you do not learn your lesson but life is the lesson. It only seems harder because you are now aware of the weaknesses that are within you. There is no more or less that we ask of you. Your spirit is free to learn as much as it desires. Part of who you are meant to be is wthin the lessons that are put forth before you. It is not that you will not grow into who you are meant to be, for you were born a pure soul. There will be other lifetimes for you to experience all that you need to be. Choose wisely for your decisions will bring consequences that you do not seek. Today, do things that make you happy. You will find that although you have the freedom to choose the lessons you want to work on, there is a cause and affect to your action. So choose wisely and turn your weaknesses into the strength you need to live a fulfilled life..
It is time to believe in myself...
(I always thought that if we didn't learn our lessons, they would come faster and harder. But what I'm hearing in this message is that it is up to me whether I want to make an effort to learn my lessons and become better for it. Life truly is a struggle, but it living my life that is truly what this is all about. I'm afraid of my lessons like anyone else is, but I know that I've become stronger because of the very same lessons that I fear.)

Finding Your Soul Mate

Losing yourself to find your soul mate is not our intention. It is by living your life with true compassion that your soul will find it's partner. Your soul is beyond your body and mind, it is who you are over many lifetimes. It is not your purpose to live only to find someone to make you whole, for you are already who you are meant to be. Sometimes we see soul mates, pass by each other for only a moment. But within that time, something special evolves which changes your life forever. Today, be the soul mate that you dream to have. It is by believing that all is possible that you will find your partner in life. We are here to support your journey.
Meet me in the garden and bring peace to my life...
(I used to believe that life would be missing something if I didn't find my soul mate. But I now realize that finding a soul mate doesn't define who I am and what my purpose is in life. If I am lucky, I may find that special someone who my soul recognizes to be a part of my spirit. Whether male or female, that person will remind me to walk my path with true intention and compassion. I feel as if I've been blessed to have met many pure souls that have made my life a wonderful place to be.)

Seeing A Piece Of Heaven

What do you do when you see a piece of heaven? When the sky opens up and you see a light shining through the dark clouds. It's as if there is a pathway that leads sraight up to the sky. You experience a moment of awe as the sight takes your breath away. How can you come up with the words to describe what you are witnessing. Sometimes when the universe opens up it's doors, you are able to share in the miracle. Don't let life keep you so busy that you miss seeing a piece of heaven. Today, open your eyes to the miracles that happen everyday.
Heaven is everywhere...
(Today I saw the most beautiful sunset and I wondered how many other people were stopping to witness this wonderful sight. I only caught it for two seconds, but it really affected me. It was if I was being showed what the world would look like if everything was perfect. Sometimes I forget how life is truly the way it's supposed to be. When I get caught up with my daily drama, that's when I miss out on the best opportunities. Life can be as simple as I want it to be.)

Now The Work Begins

Now that you are on your path, the work begins. You thought the difficulty was in knowing where your journey is leading you and where you will be in the future. But what is the purpose of the journey if you don't work to get there. There are many of you who think that knowing your destiny was the easy part in life. But there are those whose life ends up meaning nothing because all they did was wait for things to happen. The universe flows in many direction, it is up to you to find your way to prosperity. The experience you gain along your journey is part of your destiny. Do not be fooled in thinking that you are at the end of your path, for it continues throughout your life. Know that the joy you receive in life is from the experiences you've gone through.  Today, put one step ahead of the other. Do not look at others to tell you what to do. Take initiative to listen to the voice within you that directs you towards your destiny. Don't think of the work it'll take to attain your goal, but know that what you put in life you get back ten fold. You are your future.
It takes work to create art...
(I think my problem is knowing when to stop work and appreciate what I've created. I enjoy working so much that I sometimes forget to stop and smell the roses. That's why I've really had to concentrate on slowing down, even if it means moving to another island. Sometimes I think in order to live a different lifestyle it takes a lot of work. I believe that I'm in a better place because of the decisions I am now making, but only time will tell.)

It's Time To Trust Your Heart

Although we hear your prayers, you may think that we can't hear you because nothing in your life seems to change. But we have given you the strength to trust in your heart to see you through difficult times. It may be hard to understand but the prayers that you say often times brings out the courage within yourself to do what is right. Many times you question whether what you are doing is leading you down the right path. But there is no wrong path, only different journeys. If you listen closely, you will hear what your heart is telling you. Others may not understand what you decide to do, even you may wonder if you are doing the right thing. It is only in the experience that you will find why you are moving in that direction. It's time to trust your heart and be at peace within yourself. Today, think about what is holding you back from trusting that you can live a life that makes you whole. What brings you peace and makes your spirit smile? Learning to trust yourself takes patience and courage to be the person you were meant to be.
Nature has a way of making you believe that all is possible...
(I think one of the most difficult thing to do in life is believing in myself. When the knowing is within me, I have a difficult time communicating what I'm doing to those who care about me. I understand that it's easier to be safe than to venture outside my comfort zone, but I guess that's where trusting in my heart comes in. All I can say is this is the hardest thing I've ever done. But I believe that there is a bigger plan than what I can see.)

Time Is Passing You By

Being still is difficult when time seems to pass you by. We can see you moving quickly through your day. It's as if you were to stop you would be missing something. Time is a human perception of measuring opportunities. How can you quantify something that has no meaning to anyone but yourself. Release the concept of time and you will be freeing yourself from the boundaries that keep you from attaining your dreams. Let go of time and you will be able to achieve all.  Today, take off your watches. Go by your instincts as to when to awake, when to rest, when to eat. You will see how intuned your spirit is with what needs to be done within the day. Free yourself from what binds you because time is passing you by.
There is no place for watches at the beach...
(I had to stop wearing watches for awhile because they kept stopping when I wore them. I guess I needed a break from keeping track of time. I've started to wear a watch again, but the funny thing is that I think of it as a bracelet so I never look at it. I find myself looking for clocks. It's strange how we can train ourselves to depend on things that we may not need.)

Being There For Each Other

There are moments in life when you need to count on each other to get the support you need. Sometimes you may not know how much you need someone's help until the time comes and you are unable to stand alone. It's with the help of others that you are able to move forward on your journey. There are many of you that are interconnected. Your lives are intertwined in so many ways that you are unaware of. The combined energy of everyone can make all things possible. Open your heart to what can be and see how being there for each other can change the world. Today, be there for someone you don't know. It's easy to help those you love and care for, now spread your nurturing spirit to others who you have not yet met. Make a difference in someone's life today.
In weather like this, we truly need to be there for each other...
(It always surprises me how people have difficulty helping others that they don't know. Just stopping for a second to say hello seems to be uncomfortable for some. I've been walking around for the past few days trying to say hi to people, but there are many that walk with their heads down. How can I be there for others if they don't want to be bothered?  Maybe it's more about sending positive energy to those who are used to living in a bubble. I'll have to think about this.)

Waiting For Change To Happen

When you wait too long for change to occur, sometimes it just happens without you knowing. Nothing is ever clear when you choose to keep your eyes closed to everything that makes you uncomfortable. For opportunities to come to fruition, you will need to take an active part in life. By waiting on the sidelines for an easier path to walk, life will quietly pass you by. Be ready for the changes that are now occurring throughout the universe. For it is in you to be the change that you have only been dreaming about. Today, be yourself as you live your life. Trust your spirit to guide you through the changes that are happening in your life. All will pass as the day ends and a new beginning will meet you tomorrow morning.
How different we would view the world if we were children...
(As much as I am a creature of habit, I understand the value of change. How different my life would be if the universe didn't shake it up every few years. My spirit has learned so much because of my life journey. I don't know what my future holds, but I wait with abaited breath as my destiny unfolds.)

Believing In Yourself

If you could see yourself like we do, then anything is possible. We are with you every step of the way that you don't have to have any doubts that you'll get lost along the way. For we are here to guide you, support you, and be there to nurture your spirit. Although you may wonder why you are here, know that when you begin to truly believe in yourself then the universe will open up to all that is awaiting you. Today, know that all is possible. You are the key to your own future.
It's time for all things to flow with the universe...
(It feels good to know that no matter what is happening, there is someone who believes in me. With that, it's alot easier to go through each day with a positive attitude and optimism that I am where I'm supposed to be. I truly believe that the universe always flows in the right direction and it's carrying me along the way. There are two people who have always believe in what I do. Thank you M & T, I'm thinking of and miss you both.)

The Keys To Life

During your lifetime, we give you keys that help you to open the door to understanding. Sometimes they help you to clarify moments when your life is at it's most confusing or when you feel lost. The keys to life are given not when you want them but when you need them to move forward on your journey. It may be an "aha" moment that changes the way you think about how you have been understanding life. They turn your life around so that all that you once thought to be true, doesn't seem to fit just right any more. There is no right or wrong on your path. It is only in knowing yourself better that you are able to make decisions that will be in sinc with your journey. Live your life with good intentions and the keys of life will come to you when you least expect them. Today, be in the moment. If it is time to reflect then that is what you should do, but if it time just to be then that is what is right for you. Do not force to be where you do not feel your spirit can support you. You can only be who you are in the moment.
Why can't we get things written in stone...
(I think it's human nature that we ask questions about our future. I'm not sure if I truly want to know, but it's curiosity more than anything. So far whenever I learn about my future, it entails work and patience on my part. I'm not sure if we're really meant to hear what is to be because we don't have any reference point to understand it. I'm always amazed at where I am headed and where I am now. Maybe one day, I'll be contented with just who I am in the moment.)

Living With Pain

Whether you are living with physical or emotional pain know that we are walking along side with you. There are many of you that feel alone and may think that no one understands how deeply you hurt. No matter what others say to support you, there are times that you stand alone. It is when it is the most silent that you feel most misunderstood. We can only send messengers to help you through the most difficult times. We do not shrug our duties, although you may not feel us. If you listen very carefully, you will feel your healing through the love of others. We give you no more or less than we have always given you. Your pain is seen through your eyes and you will always be cared for. Today, know that we walk with you. You are never alone and misunderstood. Be still and let us love you unconditionally.
Life is sometimes as tangled as nature...
(It saddens me to know that those living with pain sometimes feel alone. When I'm going though pain, I can't even think. I am just living second by second. When it's over I move on with appreciation that I am pain free. If that is the case, then those living in pain shouldn't be pitied but admired. Being in pain, I see another way of looking at life.)

When Life Happens

Sometimes it may seem that things occur just to see if you will break under pressure. You build a safe world or at least one that you have been controlling. It may not be the perfect life, but it is one that you understand and can make sense out of. Then things happen unexpectedly that make you question the universe. Why do you spend time questioning, when life is to experience. It is difficult to understand when you are going through chaos and misfortune, but these are the times that the universe is closer to you than ever. It is not what you want to hear, but it is the truth. We are not here to punish you or to break you, it is so that you overcome what you thought was unsurmountable. It is what makes you have the courage to do other things that you thought you could never do. After periods of hardship, there is an appreciation of the more simple things in life that have always surrounded you but you have taken for granted. Life is not difficult, it is the way you perceive life that makes it difficult. Live for the moment, no more no less. Today will pass. You will make it through this day and the next. Taking a step at a time, wiping your tears, you will see this through and life will again be what it is. You are life and life you seek has always been within your spirit.
Nature is beauty...
(It's funny how I was feeling sorry for myself today because I fell in the bathroom this morning and I could barely walk and sit, but listening to a friend whose life has simple turned around because of unexpected events, I think how we are all going through our own journey. All we can do is support and take care of each other. Simply listening does wonders. We are all in this together.)

Learning To Open To The Unknown

No matter how much you say you are open to change, when it occurs you face your fears again. It is easy to say that you want things to change and that you want to move forward in your life but when the time comes, you often times turn away. It is in your nature to be scared of change, but when you are stuck in a sense of comfort you lose track of what is real. It is not real to block yourself so securely so that you are unaffected with what is going on in the world today. You've become so insular that it bothers you when things are different from what you've come to know. Even people who bring you new experiences you tend to shun because it threatens the comfort of the life you have worked so hard to create. If this is truly the way you want your life to be, then stop asking the universe for things that are outside of what you now have. To ask for something different is to bring forth change. Learning to open to the universe takes strength and the courage to meet the challenges ahead. Walk forward with your head held high. Today, meet what life brings to you. Every new opportunity comes with change. You were not meant to stay the same, but to become more than you are today. It is in you to be the person you were meant to be.
Go ahead and enjoy...
(Sometimes I put things off for tomorrow that I should be attending to today. I've learned to acknowledge when I need to rest my mind, body, and spirit. I find that when I pay attention to what I need, I feel much better. Although I'm learning to open myself to possibilities, it's still a work in process. Putting aside the walls I've built around myself is not as easy to do. If I say so myself I do a pretty good job at wall building.)
