clarity

September 10, 2014
Clear your perceptions free of confusion. Focus on intent and straightforward expression. 
See the world as it is without your projections, judgments, and assumptions.
Clarity is a process not a singular event and once reached tends to mark progress not arrival.
The love of truth clears the attachments that result in misconceptions and false conclusions and makes it possible to align with our essential presence. As we learn to attune ourselves to our true nature, it informs our consciousness of the right attitudes, directions, and actions – all free of assumptions and judgments.
So what do we do to encourage clarity to emerge? We engage in dynamic inquiry into ourselves. Asking, who I am? Why am I acting this way or that way? What is the conditioning that is the lens I am looking through? Invite your inner being to disclose its richness and mysteries and reveal its possibilities.
The world as we perceive it is a projection of our thoughts, images, emotions, and imprints. They are important only as points of orientation, not as conclusive evidence of reality.
We need to be willing to allow our dreams, our current self-images, our very identities to completely change in kind and quality.
Clear the confusion and preconceptions that cover your deepest and most cherished inner sensations and be willing to be completely yourself. Or repeat the past endlessly.
May the Angel of Clarity animate your inner being bringing new and fresh ways of viewing yourself and the world throughout the coming month.

compassion

September 10, 2014
Heartfelt understanding of the human condition that encompasses the pain in oneself and others, dissolves judgment and opens the way for acceptance. A sincere desire to alleviate suffering.

Compassion is an energetic emanation from the essential part of us that holds the ‘will to good’.
 
We are in constant connection with those around us though our energetic imprints. Everything we touch is imbued with our signature. The more intentional we are, the longer our signature lingers and the greater the influence of our touch. The same is true of our thoughts and feelings, the stronger and more repetitive, the longer they ‘live’.
 
Cultivating a compassionate nature for both ourselves and others acts as a healing balm that helps us tolerate hurts and nurtures our ability to be with what is. It gives us refuge from our judging minds and allows our hearts to open. Without compassion, we cannot see the truth and nor pass through the suffering to trust in a greater reality.
 

The cultivation of compassion is a life-long practice, it comes with experience and the flowering of an intelligent heart. A heart that is perceptive to the subtleties of indifference, pity, sympathy, loving kindness, and caring.
Sometimes, we can become compassion-fatigued and separate ourselves from the dilemma of being human. This may be a wide spread cause of depression, stress, and lack of self worth. When we are constantly being traumatized by our environment this creates energetic imprints that can exhaust us out of our hearts.
There is no need to do anything ‘about’ the human experience. We all have our trigger points that move us to action. The question is; does our action lead to a domino effect of love or separation? If separation is the result, it is not just from something or someone, it is from our own hearts.
For this month, practice the art of compassion through touch, thought, and feeling with the intention of leaving a compassionate energetic signature that animates the will to good and love for humanity, each other, and ourselves. There is no difference.
May you be wrapped in the wings of the Angel of Compassion holding you safely in your heart. And invite it to enfold all those you love.

wisdom

September 10, 2014
Wisdom arises from experience, a deep heart, and willingness to learn. Add your maturity and inner knowing to spiritually nourish each creative moment.
 

The wisdom of the inevitable is a great teacher – beginnings, endings, need to eat and sleep, the cycles of nature, our bodies as we go though life.
 
I am reminded of the beginning of the Serenity Prayer; ‘God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.’

 

This is the task – to know the difference.
 
But how? Sometimes what we can change is obvious and at other times it is masked with emotion. Cultivating an internal context for our journey means a close examination of our conditionings and attachments. Wisdom comes with experience and maturity, living our learning, allowing what is, and is, and is.
 
Accessing our wisdom comes though being mindfully present, doing all that we can to pay attention, using whatever we have learned, bringing the best techniques we have, the best attitude we have, the best understanding we have, and applying it right now. This evokes the deep luminous wisdom of your heart and nourishes each creative moment.
 
Every ancient culture has an inner group of wisdom keepers who preserve and maintain the traditions. These hidden teachings are within our mind streams, ready to reveal and enhance our understanding of the evolutional impulse, and give us certainty in these times of shaking the old from our collective perceptions.
 
May the Wisdom of the Ancient Ones unlock your memories and light your way home.
 

faith

September 10, 2014
The unshakable knowing of the heart when nothing makes sense to the mind. Optimism is an expression of faith in action.
Faith is the breath of God that animates our soul. We cannot see it, we can only feel it — when we pay attention. Doubt is the uncertainty that our source of spiritual power will be available to us in times of misfortune, pain, and illness.
It is normal to experience spiritual doubt. In fact, times of doubt can lead to our greatest transformative moments and is the ‘can’ opener to faith.
The future is unknowable and therefore brings with it a feeling of uncertainty. It is faith that teaches us to contemplate the invisible which is beyond our grasp; not through the power of knowledge.
Our faith connects the past to the future and gives us a kind of spiritual gravity. It reassures us that God is in the future just as in the present and past. All that is unknowable is held within God and that includes us, our families, friends, and all our collective well being; yesterday, today, and tomorrow in all ways.
Worry is a flag waving where faith is waiting to enter. Fall out of your mindsets and have confidence your heart will catch you. There are no accidental experiences or chance inner states.
The spiritual dimensions of life are real, more real in fact than what we call life on this earth. Faith is the unifying principle that weaves together all experiences.
May this month provide a ‘faith-lift’ bringing you a refreshed outlook and renewed perspective.

grace

September 10, 2014
Poise and elegance in form, attitude, and action. Give up struggle and allow the universe to participate in the creation of your life. 
Grace is a healing balm that soothes our nervous system and relaxes our stance in the world. It gives margins to our souls allowing us to be held in the deep state of a soft heart.
In a world filled with static and adversity, Grace is the aura of goodness and wellbeing. Allow it to saturate your activities and restore your state of calmness.
Sound a Grace note this month. Your words can bring the remedy of grace, whether it is your own self talk or when speaking with another. Words are an instrument to heal or wound, to connect or separate. Let your words encourage, ease, and soothe the nervous system of humanity with the healing balm of grace.

The idea of Grace points directly to the mystery of our being. It cannot be defined, strategized, or controlled. But, we can place ourselves in the direct line of grace by holding sacred space and cultivating sacred conditions.
The gradual process of interior transformation and awakening changes the way we experience reality and brings a new quality of information. A restructuring of consciousness takes place that empowers us to perceive, relate, and respond with increasing sensitivity to the Divine Presence in, through, and beyond everything that exists.
Maybe your soul’s journey is simply learning to live as an emanation of the Presence of God and be a vessel through which Grace flows.
 
We hope the Angels continue to inspire your life. May your heart be soft and your presence filled with Grace

play

September 10, 2014
Maximize every moment of liveness. Experience 
pleasurable involvement in all your activities and enjoy what you are doing.  Have Fun!
Play is at the heart of our creativity and animates our being in our most carefree moments. It helps us live with absurdity, paradox, and mystery. It feeds our joy and wonder. It keeps our search for meaning down to earth.
There is so much going on in the world, and within us, that our stress levels have adjusted upwards to a new ‘normal’ creating a hidden epidemic of fun deficit disorder (FDD). Play is an antidote to stress. Either can totally absorb your attention and cause a cascade of feelings that greatly impact your happiness quotient. 
Play engages us with the imaginal realm and supports and enriches our metabolization of life. It is integral for generating insights and effortless realizations. Play literally gives us a ‘breather’ – restoring our vitality at a core level.
This month find a fun activity that totally captivates your attention to the point where time seems to slow or even stop, and the voice inside — the one giving constant commentary on what you’re doing, have done, or will be doing — ceases.  Laugh heartily at jokes, situations, and yourself.
Wishing you playful, joyous moments And, transformed FDD to F:):)….
