Old Chinese

The day was crisp. It smelled of Winter coming. The Old Sage of the Forest was sitting beside the Lake of Li. All of a sudden the cold air was replaced by a warm breeze. “Ah!” he told himself, “He is come” As he tuned in to the vibration, he felt a warmth and a shiver come over him. The warmth was spreading through his breast and the shiver was in his abdomen. “This one is special”, he whispered to himself. “This is what I have prepared for all these lives. “  He sat in stillness and silence beside the lake to await him. In the distance the waterfall crashed down into the waters and the air became alive.

At the edge of the Forrest of Kan, the boy dismissed his escort and stepped forward to the fountain. The royal guards had expressed their concern for the 13 year old, left alone on the verges of the forest, but the son of the Emperor waved aside their concerns as he had dismounted from his horse. “I am the son of the Emperor. It is my duty to study with the Old Sage of the Forest. One day, I shall be Emperor and I must be brave and endure my challenges, for my Father has sent me, as was he, and his father before him, to receive the tutelage of the Old Sage on his 13th birthday.”

He stepped up to the spring-fed water fountain at the small opening in the woods where a path entered the dense forest. The forest was almost completely hidden by a dense fog that appeared as the boy had arrived. “I am Immortal, I am Infinite, I am Eternal, I am Universal” he declared, as he had been instructed. As he cupped the sweet tasting water in his hands, the fog parted just enough to reveal the path. He stepped into the fog and it parted in front of him. His heart was pounding. It was getting cool. The night was not far away. He stepped, and the fog parted.

Visit Your Heart

Visit Your Heart

Dear one, it is always such a pleasure to converse with you and to look at the approaching wave of energy that comes towards your planet and that is moving in your life, for there is a movement, a great shakeup, that is obvious, that the shake-up is also penetrating into the depths of each person and the place within the structure and framework of it all; because it is important to always recognize the inter-connectedness of yourself with nature, with each other, each one, the water, the air, the Earth, the seasons – the interconnectedness of all that is within your macro and microcosmic themes. There is such a vastness of interconnectedness within the physiology, the physics, the psychology, the dimensions, the realms, the levels in consciousness. There is a wave that is moving across your world that is not just shaking up everything, but is laying down the foundation for what must replace that which is falling apart, for that which is falling apart is bringing about tremendous amounts of fear. And fear is what runs your planet. And has been running your planet and is of an old vibration that cannot sustain itself. For you are moving your life as a species towards extinction, and there must be a place where the stop sign says “you cannot go further” until you have made some major modifications in your attitudes, in your understandings of reality and in your experience of reality. There must be balance and as the pendulum has reached its maximum point of out of balance-ness it must return now towards a more neutral place, a new plateau, at a new level

It does not take a rocket scientist, it does not take an Angel to know that your world is in chaos and there’s tremendous amount of fear, and the only remedy known for fear is love and what is love: “the unconditional acceptance’s of another reality”. “Allowance” is a very difficult undertaking from where you stand- to recognize that there is an unfolding that is in perfection at work in your life, and that you can trust what you may call a higher power; that you are ready for a new beginning; that you are ready to embrace the wholeness of who you are, which includes that which you designate as evil or dark, the energies that move forward the violence, the greed, the interference from other Beings that has caused so much chaos within your world, and yet, the pendulum swings backwards and forwards in constant motion, and your evolution happens, and your moments happen. And so this is where you must come – to the place of being in the moment, “who am I? what do I carry? what of what I carry do I want, and what do I no longer want? I do not wish to live in fear, in lack, in isolation. I wish to live in harmony with the essence of who I am as a human, as an angel, as a creature, as an expression of God. I wish to reclaim that nature that I carry within me that is that essence of the living spirit that is within all life and that blesses all life. I wish to align with this vibration now and stay in that alignment living from my heart and each day I will reinforce my resolve to live from that vibration, in that state of mind and be willing to experience ease and grace on an ongoing basis. I take on the challenge to make the big leap from that space of hiding, looking for safety; to flying, seeing everything, experiencing every moment to its fullest, feeling the love of God within my heart, living from the heart”.

This is your challenge, at this time, this is what is required, and what you are being asked to experience in terms of transformation, of everything, at all levels. There need be no fear for there is guidance, support, resource. The universe knows what to do. You can not fix it. You can only be yourselves and live each moment as an expression of that resolve: to live your fullest potential and offer it to all for service; but for yourself to receive that same offering as it is reflected back and forth, among your hearts that carry this intention, this desire, this orientation of service. Honor it, respect it, be grateful for it. It is your gift to the world, what you carry in your heart, your love for your friends, your families, your people, your creatures, your love for the Earth and the waters, the air, the soil; the creatures that are fading from your planet they are all calling to you for transformation a voluntary experience of allowance, of being willing to receive and accept the stewardship of your Mother through your heart, so the experience of joy and abundance, everything you do to elevate your own heart and mind and body and being, you do for her too; for the light you are shines and touches everyone and the brighter the light, the greater your contribution, and there’s nothing you have to do but shine; be an expression of love, of acceptance, forgiveness, of hope – for those that have none. Generate it in your own attitude, a knowing that there is a divine purpose to everything, there is a divine intelligence at work. Allow yourself to rest in this vibration as it carries you forward into the next year into this final season of the 2016 12:19 year, this most pivotal year you have ever imagined or experienced, for so much has shifted and changed within this one year framework and it is expanding and accelerating so that your mind must let go of its illusions, of its ideas, of its beliefs; you cannot ride on this wave feeling unworthy or guilt or shame. There is no room within that framework for those old stories to come with; they are spent. The reason why you’re not living your full potential is accessible to you now. Access it; unlock the key that keeps you from being your full potential; from living from your essence; from living a life of ease and grace and joy and peace, cooperation and harmony – a new world unfolding within the ashes of the old, ready to burst forth. You a part of this evolution. We are the Angels, your messengers; we are your guides and your guardians. We are available for you to commune within your own heart and we encourage you to do so and you may call them what you will or they will give you names. These will be your own voices, your own team of Angels that will replace the old voices of your imprints, your conditioning, your traumas, your experiences, your losses and sadnesses, and your strong emotions. Honor them. They had a strong part to play in bringing you to this place. Now that you are here, you to get to choose what you want to take with you and what you want to leave behind; for you are at the threshold, as is all of creation. All of this human universe is at a threshold, at the crossroads and it is moving in a very beautiful direction. If you take Time and allow it to be malleable, and you take space and you recognize its interconnectedness you become your own best lover; you become your own wisdom, your own guidance, you become your own heart and you can shine, fully illumined and illuminating everything, just by being. If you feel into this place where we are taking you as you listen or read, it is a place you can go to; it is a vibration. It may be for you just a starting point; you may not need it 18:51- you may have your own way. It is fine. You are moving into unity consciousness whether you like it or not, whether you want it or not; and as you want it and like it, it will grow within you and your heart will blossom. It was never intended for you to suffer any more than was necessary to bring you to this place. Do not allow the what-ifs and all the thoughts of the mind to confuse you into thinking that none of this is possible or real for your mind has not been there yet. 19:57 Only your heart can take you there now. The mind can help you by allowing your heart to direct it into fruitful thinking into generous acts of kindness and love; into deeper communication, greater wisdom and peace. All is yours, waiting for you, and it is waiting for you to take at whatever moment you choose to. And your heart will tell you what to do; and what not to do, as long as you visit it daily; and as much of the day as you can muster.

It is a very simple practice, just to visit your heart as often as possible. You may find us there, having conversation with you about your life, about what you want, about what’s going on; for you will find in your heart many treasures. We wish you much fun as you go treasure hunting. Remember to play, no matter what happened. Remember to laugh, to sing, to dance, no matter what happened, or what you thought happened.

Shift

There is a message that has been brewing in my soul since the election in the uSA. I have come across many responses of sadness, despair, shock and outrage as a result of the election results, responses that surprised me from people I respect and love, who seem to have a perspective that I do not quite share. In my innocence and naivite as a dreamer, as a “hopeless/hopeful romantic”, I have come to have a perspective that always attempts to see things through a higher perspective, through the vision of Spirit, of God’s love and of the evolution of consciousness on the planet that I have come to be a part of, to serve and experience. There is a flow of awareness and evolution that is in process and we don’t always have the ability or capacity to know the whole picture. It is my perhaps naive view, that everything, EVERYTHING, that happens has a higher purpose, however horrifying, traumatic, joyful or cruel, it may seem. I have complete trust that there is a higher purpose also in these events that are happening in human history, in the history of the planet and the current moment in the evolutionary process of our “civilization”. Empires, civilizations have risen and fallen for countless millenia. Within the framework of time  (or no-time) everything evolves and is part of our soul’s journey towards wholeness, towards the recognition of God’s love manifesting in our lives and moving towards the eventual world of Heaven on Earth, a “return” to a New Dawn, an age of peace, love, harmony and cooperation on this planet. It is not necessarily given to us to see how the steps along that journey are part of this unfolding, but I hold in my heart the dearness of this vision and the Divine Purpose that is at work. Our human perspective has been conditioned heavily by the traumas, acculturation and distortions of our upbringing, of our limited brains and perspectives, and I am praying and holding space for the evolution that is now occurring to blossom into the reality of this vision that my heart tells me IS the New Reality unfolding. May it be so for you too, in whatever way it can manifest for your deepest happiness.

“Starting Over Again”, a message from Your Angel Friends

Starting Over Again

“Starting Over Again” is the subject of today’s talk. It is a very important attitude to develop now; A very important perspective to have an understanding about the possibility of starting over again. And we would like to clarify what that means but for each one who listens or reads or hears this, understanding that you can start again from the beginning, means that everything you have carried, that you no longer want, that you no longer feel, that you no longer want to feel, that you no longer believe and that you no longer regard as your reality – as your story, as having any validity any longer, because you are starting again; with only that which you really want and need from your heart; that which you envisage, intention, that which you call in, that which you love, that which excites you, that which fulfills you and brings you happiness- deep happiness, realization of what you need to cultivate for your body, for your mind, and for your soul. For without any one of these aspects you are not complete. And this is a time of completion, and in order to complete, you must have an idea of what’s next, of what you want, of what you are drawn to and feel, what brings you happiness and joy, must be your focus for you to begin again, for you do not wish to begin again the cycle you have just completed. Within the space of talking, of reaching conclusion, and of being concluded, having completeness about your past – you do not have to even filter out the good and the bad, or consider it, except as history that happened once to somebody, and it is over. And it is inscribed somewhere that this happened, but the charge is no longer there. This is a leap, a great leap fore many, as you are thinking, it is a leap of faith, but faith must be in oneself, and yes, you can have companions in whom you can have faith, because they have showed up before, or show up now. They are part of your support team. They’re the ones who love you the most. They wish for you the best, always the best for yourself and so starting over again means putting yourself first. It means developing self-authority in all areas of your life. It means going within in some form. You may consider it going out to some divinity but we recommend that you consider that when you wish to access divinity, that you go within, for you have the mechanism, right within your heart space and all you need do is put your right hand on your heart and your left on your right or imagine and go there into the heart through the breath. Call in the stillness, call in your angels your guides, your BAs, your MAs your PhDs, call in whatever you need to call in to be present with you now,   in the moment of your connecting to your heart and then wait. For we will speak to you, through you, if you take the time to go there, to pay attention, to be still. This is a very good place to start a new life; to be starting all over again; All you bring to the table now is your excitement, your visions, your direction, your intentions your purpose, your goals, your love, your support, all the things you want, you want for everyone now, but that means you want it for yourself; whatever it is that will help you on your journey and certainly ease and grace, equanimity and peace, and love, acceptance, forgiveness, joy; all these things on the menu that we can name are there for you now in that space of the heart. Being in the space of the heart will generate a field of safety because there is a great power to the electromagnetic field that you exude when you are in that state of being in the heart and being still, by paying attention to the breath, to the feet, to the above and the below, and to begin to cultivate the knowing that you can go into the heart with ease and grace, that you can have, that you can be free, you can have love, you can be safe. Your heart is that place, and it is within you. And whatever you need to do, you need to do, to get to that place and it is up to you to determine what that is; not just for yourself, but for all. Everyone is entitled to their self-authority. Those who are free to pursue this for themselves, are doing so for the world, and they will receive that which they are calling in.

It is a glorious time; there is so much blessing that pours through you, each one of you who listens, who hears, who receives, who reads, for this message is not for the one talking, though it brings him to the same place as you who are hearing; this is the next phase. As you release your first moment of flight as the new butterfly, you are beginning from the start, beginning again, and you have a clean slate now, for you have made an agreement with yourself that this is what you want; you wish to be free, you wish to be happy, you wish to be together and you wish to be alone; you wish to have all your needs met, and beyond; you wish to have your heart’s desire. This is what is at stake, and this is what is now being presented to you by the Universe. It may be a thorny path for some, you may get scratched, and yet, it is only so because there is much work to be done to clear up the old attachments to the past, because you as a soul, as an entity of spirit that is in form, within your BodyBeingMind, there is this recognition, that you can be sovereign. There is an understanding that you are here and that you are ready for these things to be your reality, and you must focus upon them, for at least enough time to recognize that “Yes, I can have this”, this is what I want, and I may not know how, but I am telling the Universe, and I am asking at the same time “this is what I want. Manifest it for me, with me. Let me be in that place where this is my reality, where everything unfolds with ease and grace even the journey through the briar patch. As you connect with your essence, as you begin to recognize the beauty of your own unique being, you will begin to live this life more and more as you do so.

Your Angel Friends.

Masculine/Feminine

Good evening to you, Raphael,

We would like to share a message with you for those who may be interested to hear, for today many are eager to hear the words of the Divine Wisdom of the Feminine, of the Goddess. So although you may know me more directly as Mary or Miryam, I am merely an energy that transmits vibrations from the aspect of God Essence that you call the Divine Feminine, or Sophia or Isis, or Mary, be it the Mother Mary or the Magdalen, or any other form of Mother energy.

We wish to talk about cultivating the Feminine, AND the Masculine. It is especially important for men on your planet today, to recognize that they are in fact made up of a combination, in equal amounts, of both masculine and feminine energy.

Imagine the heart shape you are familiar with the curvy rounded M at the top and the broad V at the bottom forming the familiar heart shape you use on all your greeting cards and computer icons or emoticons. Then it is easy to see that the heart is divided into two halves – just as your physical heart has two sides divided by a septum or wall, with each side, complete unto itself but also comprised of two chambers, one to send and one to receive, masculine and feminine.

It may be difficult for you to imagine that you are comprised of two halves, so to speak, that for the women, there is an equal component, equal in size, importance and value one with the other. What does that look like? What does that feel like? Can you, who are identified with yourself as a woman, imagine that you have a masculine side that you may not have come to appreciate – qualities that you may be reluctant to acknowledge, because the world of male has alienated you and harmed you, and so you hold it in low esteem or with fear or judgment, or horror! And for those men out there who have to maintain the appearance of strength and invincibility to recognize that have softness, tenderness; that they can receive… These are not comfortable things to contemplate.

And yet the fate of your planet and its survival depend upon this understanding for there is nothing that will bring about the healing of the Earth and its creatures as this understanding that it is essential for the masculine – the real, human masculine – that is men and the halves of women that are represented by their masculine side – to allow themselves to recognize that the role of men is to protect, honor, respect life – not just of “their own” that is men, but all life, not the destruction energy. The shift that is necessary must emerge from the cultivation in men of their true nature as protectors, and this shift incorporates a recognition of their human, feminine, soft, receptive, intuitive nature, the essence of compassion, mercy and responsibility to uphold the safety and sustainability of the collective.

The women will need to encourage men to be honest, gentle and intuitive and learn to recognize their feeling nature, for in many ways, men are light years behind the women in emotional maturity, mostly because they have not been encouraged to even come close to recognizing their feelings by their peers, parents and politics. The culture must shift, is shifting, and it is requiring women to step forward into positions of leadership that portray a different model of leadership, not the one that requires a dominator consciousness, but one that recognizes the power and value of cooperation and collaboration, of sharing rather that dominating.

The heart is the common denominator, the mid point, the center of this new recognition, for it spans the place of balance between heaven and earth, the within and the without, the mind and the body. Just as there is a balance point between the two opposite aspects that constitute duality, there needs to be an understanding that there is constant flow in the sub-luminary worlds, the yin/yang, the positive/negative, the constant flux that is the hallmark of life in the 3rd dimension, the underlying composition of the material plane, that is based on the electromagnetic flow of current and movement from positive to negative and negative to positive polarity. So too, we want you to realize the importance of flow, of the constant movement in and out of breath, of life, of soul energy, of life and death; and always there is the place of union that is beyond, between and within this flow of duality. Do not negate anything, do not deny anything!. There is light and there is darkness and always there is a place of balance. As you come to recognize this within your own reality you begin to adapt more and more easily to the changes that are upon you now.

You are not here to be spiritual. You are here to be human. You are already both. You are human angel, divine and material. The less you see things from a polarized experience, the more easily you flow, and the easier your life becomes. We, in the “Angelic” realms are here in your existence because we want to help you to have an easier time, less suffering, less struggle. We bring a message of ease and grace. It is not about “saving the world”. Life is precious. All life is precious. It is an expression of God’s love. It is Creation in expression, creativity. You were given free will, for what? To create!. You have heard the idea that you create your reality. What does that mean? It means you are responsible for your own experience. You may not be conscious of it. It may seem like something outside of you is responsible, to blame, imposing something upon you. You are so much more than your mind, your body, your will, your thoughts and feelings. You are eternal, infinite, immortal beings, created in the image of “God”, whatever that means for you at your stage of evolution.

The question was asked, can a man be an embodiment of the Divine Mother. Why not? is the answer. You have assumptions about everything. If there is a feeling of such abundant love and enfolding and softness and nurturing, and the being that emanates this energy has a male body…. Perhaps this person is an embodiment of the Divine Mother. Do not discount anything. The world has a hard time accepting that the heart is the primary organ of consciousness because the brain has become the dominant eye through which you perceive reality. We encourage you to recognize brain, body and heart as each carrying its own particular wisdom. You need all the wisdom you can get these days, so why not accept that you have three aspects of yourselves that wish to impart their wisdom to you. Pay attention to your bodies. Pay attention to your hearts. They have been left out of the equation of the totality of who you are. Know that you are dearly loved, otherwise you would not have come into existence. If you can give attention to the little things, the small pleasures, the smiles, the moments of peace, of love, of smelling a flower, of breathing a waterfall, of taking a walk, and then allow them to grow. All you have is the moment. Everything else is an illusion. Each time you breathe, you are embodying the miracle of life. Each time you pay attention to that breath, you are acknowledging that you are alive, that you have the power to carry on, you are not alone, and there is another moment that can be different, can be unique, can be special.

When you have challenge, whether it be relationship, resource, health issue, each breath carries you into a new moment and as you learn to live in that moment to the full, a new dawning can occur in your consciousness that, just maybe, you will get through, you will manage and there is always help as you turn to us, the angels, the guides, the helpers in the invisible worlds. Pray and then feel that your prayers are being answered, someone cares, someone is listening and they will help you. And there is no death, only transition, only flux, only change. The language of the heart is connection. Everyone is hungry for this. Connect to something, someone, an animal, a person, a tree, a flower, a toy…. Feel the Earth beneath your feet, feel the air, the wind. See yourself connecting, listen, feel…. What does your body say, what is your heart saying. Stop the mind’s constant babble and listen. We are there in the stillness, the Holy Mother, the Goddess, the Divine Feminine, the Father, the simple unadulterated mind of a child, the breath, the moment; God’s love.
