Taking Time Out in the Concrete Jungle of Shanghai

Published 17/05/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

One of my dear blogging friends Saymber said to me a few days ago, and I quote “.it’s important to stay grounded in these things. I would suggest a nice bit of time outside without shoes and socks and maybe some of your favorite music”. I replied that  its not so easy living in a concrete jungle with 28,000,000 (that’s 28 million) other souls, but I agreed with her that what she was saying was so true and i really needed to get myself grounded, take my shoes and socks off and re-connect with Mother Earth, so today, I did it 🙂 And I feel fantastic 🙂 I took a walk to my closest Buddhist temple for some we deserved meditation and prayers and on the way back I spent some quality time reconnecting, standing amongst the trees, observing the gentle breeze in the leaves, listening to the birds and totally clearing my mind.

Mother nature is so beautiful and she will share her beauty with you whenever you need it, she can be found on the corner of a busy street, under a shady tree set in the concrete walkway, or even in a simple window box of flowers, all we need to do is ‘Open our Eyes’ 🙂

Blessings Saymber, and thank you Mother Earth for bringing me home today,

Namaste, with Love

The four harmonious friends, drawn by Lama Zopa Rinpoche

My Dear friends,

Clearing ones mind, managing our thoughts, opening our hearts, having compassion for others and being in service to mankind, all beings and Mother Earth, all parts of the philosphies of Buddhism, the Darma teachings and the Eightfold Path. In a world like this this in which we live in, we most often become caught up in the importance of our own life , sometime even our own survival. We loose track of who we are, we loose track and forget that all of humanity comprises of our very own ‘Brothers and Sisters’, we push forward relentlessly, chasing the dream and forgetting the important things in life like humility, compassion, loving kindness and love for all beings. The following story talks about the importance of loving kindness, being in service to others and the benefits that these simple acts can bring to our lives.

I do hope you like it?

Namaste, with Love

The Story of the Four Harmonious Brothers

In former times in the jungles near Varanasi, a pheasant, a rabbit, a monkey, and an elephant lived in friendship and harmony. The four brothers declared that although their minds were harmonious, it was sad that in the world there was so little respect held by the young for the old. They decided to show respect for each other, according to the tradition of Dharma.

Having made this determination the four animals set out to make offerings and pay homage. The younger showed respect for the older by carrying the older on his back. Standing on each others’ backs in this way, the pheasant, rabbit, monkey and elephant reached the first limb of the nyän dro da (banyan tree).

The pheasant taught the others how to follow the moral conduct of not taking lives, not taking what was not given, not speaking deceptive words, not committing sexual misconduct, and not taking intoxicants. Then each animal led similar types of animals to themselves on the path of morality. Happiness and comfort increased greatly in the world.

At that time, the king, his ministers, and the general population had the proud belief that the good times were due to their own merit. In order to determine who was responsible for the peaceful times they gathered together and asked a hermit to tell them the cause of their happiness. Through his clairvoyance the hermit explained that the countries’ wealth was not due to the power of any of the people but to the merits of the four animals in the forest who were keeping the five precepts of moral conduct and leading the other animals on that path. He advised them that they, too, should behave like these animals.

Following this advice most of the people in that region began to keep the five precepts, and as a result, after they died, they were reborn in the deva realm.

It is said in the Vinaya teaching Dülwa rlung and the discourse Do de nä kyang rlung that the pheasant was an incarnation of the qualified destroyer gone beyond Shakyamuni Buddha and the others were disciples – the rabbit was Nyi gyä (Shariputra), the monkey was Päl na kyä(Maudgalyana) and the elephant was Kungawa (Ananda).

It is also said that wherever a picture of the four brothers is displayed, the 10 virtues will increase and the minds of all will become harmonious. There will be respect for elders and auspicious events will occur.

At first, there was just the bird, and the tree was just a little sprout. The bird could scratch around on the ground and find little bits of plant to eat. The bird was unable to fly, so the bird could only eat what it could find near to the ground. As the tree grew, it became difficult for the bird to get enough food to eat.

Then, the rabbit came. The rabbit would eat what was on the ground and would lift the bird up on his back so that the bird could reach the growing tree. In this way, they both had enough to eat. However, as the tree continued to grow, it started to become too high for the bird, even on the back of the rabbit.

Then, the monkey came. The monkey could climb up into the tree and drop the fruit from the tree onto the ground for the rabbit and the bird. However, it was difficult to get to the fruit at the very top of the tree.

Then, the elephant came. With the elephant, if all the animals helped each other, they could reach the fruit at the top of the tree; and, in this way, there was plenty for all of them to eat.

The reason the four animals worked so harmoniously together and the reason they were successful is that none of them was primarily concerned with getting enough food for themselves. Each of them was concerned with trying to help the others to get what they needed. Rather than being dominated by selfish concern, they were dominated by cherishing others.

Also, the reason they were successful is that they were willing to ask for help and to receive help. In this way, the bird is considered the hero of the story. The bird was the most fragile and needed the most help.

Because the bird was willing to ask for help and because the others were happy to help the bird, everything worked out very nicely.

In Tibet, in letters of advice to families who were going through some difficult times with each other, the Four Friends were often used as an example of how the family needs to stay together and help each other. Each member is very different and brings different strengths and different weaknesses, but if they work together, they can accomplish things they could never accomplish without working together.

This story is a story of interdependence. It is a story explaining how there is no place for self-cherishing, but rather we need each other and we need to help each other. The worst thing is self-cherishing. This is a story about working harmoniously.

Blessings Be All Beings 🙂

 

 

What Story is Your Truth?

Published 13/05/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

13119051_1028241917255829_6853640171148386454_n.jpg

My Dear Friends,

A channeled message from Saint Germain

Dear heart, we come to say to you that you are not your stories, you are the pure light of your soul. Yet how many stories do you run in your mind that create your reality and become your truth, dear heart? Stories from the past and expectations of the future, each one traps you in its tentacles and you make it your truth and reality in the now moment. Yet, we say to you these are simply stories, experiences of the physical realm, but they are not that which you are.

These stories that you tell yourself are not the original blueprint of your being, but simply distortions you have created of this truth. Yet we say to you each story that you create will bring to you experiences and understandings on your journey to fully embracing the divine truth of you.

Your stories come from many places, dear heart, often from your father and mother, grandfather and grandmother, your peer groups, and your collective consciousness. You choose to play these stories as your truth, yet in truth they are but your illusions and your distraction.

Ask yourself dear one how many stories do you offer to yourself in your life? Do you understand how these stories control your reality and the way you perceive the life you are living in each moment of your existence?

Your human mind loves the stories and it has many attachments to these stories that you run as your truth. Yet, we ask you dear ones, are these stories truly the truth of your reality, or are they the illusions through which you are choosing in each moment to live?

When you run these stories you no longer live in the present moment, but simply live through the attachment of your experiences in the past or through an attachment to an expectation you hold of the future. And these may become great burdens and responsibilities that you carry, dear heart, which constantly drain all the energy you hold to live in the present moment in your truth and create your greatest potential.

We would ask you, dear heart, to consider the stories that you are running and living as your truth. As you consider them become aware of what these stories are creating for you. Does the story you are running as your truth right now serve you, to live in peace and harmony or does it create drama and chaos for you?

Is the story you are creating as your truth causing you to remain in struggle and limitation in your life or does it allow you to be fully present in the now and meet your potential? Does your story cause you to feel disempowered and in need of giving your power to another, believing that this other knows more than you and perhaps can see the truth of you?

Does your story ask you to see the God of creation outside of yourself and separate to you, causing you to feel disconnected to the Source of your being and unable to hold the light of yourself firmly in your own heart?

The human ego self is very attached to its stories and the drama and intrigue that is created through every story that you choose to live. It believes these stories give you the experiences of your reality, yet dear heart, how much does this serve you? Are you choosing to live through stories that cause you pain, struggle and suffering? And if this is true for you then have you asked yourself the purpose of this choice you have made? Do you understand, dear one, that your power lies in every choice you make and in each moment you can choose to change your story and live another experience?

Dear heart, we say to you that the story is only the story. Your attachment to the story may be your greatest limitation in your experience of the human physical existence. Being trapped in an old story of pain, struggle and limitation may not serve you to expand, grow and evolve the consciousness of your being in the present moment. It may only hold you trapped in the past or the future.

Often dear heart your ego mind chooses to attach to a story and play it again and again, even lifetime after lifetime because it judges the outcome that was created from that story. The ego was not happy or satisfied with the outcome of the original story and cannot accept it. Through the power of its will it chooses to change the outcome and so continues to play out that story over and over until it is satisfied. It may hold you enthralled for lifetimes in the same story replaying it over and over in many different ways searching to create a new outcome.

When this occurs dear heart you replay and relive the same story in many ways trying so hard to create a different ending to the story that you cannot accept as your experience.

We ask you, dear heart, have you not yet learned after so many experiences revolving around the same story again and again that the ending cannot be changed? This ending is the experience that you have been asked to master and learn. It is your Divine Plan. You are not being asked to change the story, dear one, you are being asked to accept this experience and the outcome that was created from it. Accept the ending of this story and learn what you are choosing not to learn. For in truth this is what you have come to learn in your mastery.

We ask you to consider this, beloved heart, and to ask yourself why you are choosing to continue to relive this old story in order to change the ending that you did not like. How many times have you already relived and replayed this old story, only to discover that the ending is always the same?

We say to you, dear heart, surrender to the Divine Plan. Let go your attachment to creating a different ending and accept with an open heart the experience of the original story and through this acceptance and embrace you may release your resistance to your mastery.

Only in this way, dear heart, may you truly move forward and evolve on your path. For in the letting go and acceptance of what is in this experience may you truly be free to create a new experience for yourself and step more into your mastery as a co-creator in the physical plane of the Earth.

Dear hearts, we watch you over and over again trapped in your stories and choosing to replay them over and over again. No longer present in the now but caught in your attachments to the past or your desires and needs for the future through your judgements and fear. Yet it is only in the present moment that you may know your truth and co-create through the power you hold.

We say to you there are five original stories that live through the human psyche in the physical existence. Your beautiful ego minds have created billions of different versions of these five original stories because of your resistance to letting go your free will and surrendering to the wisdom of the Divine Plan.

The five stories, beloved heart, include the first arrival of the soul consciousness into the physical plane of existence. At this time the soul feels like a newborn babe taken from the safety of the womb and feels great resistance to this. The soul consciousness may no longer feel the support of the living light of the Source heart (womb) that has nurtured it. In the voidal planes of existence, the soul is always held and surrounded by the Source consciousness just like a baby in the womb.

When the soul first comes into the physical consciousness of matter it becomes aware that it is no longer held in the voidal waters of light and like the babe it cries out to return to this loving nurturing support. When it does not the soul feels the loss of this deep connection to the heart of Source and instead of going within to find the seed of Source that has been planted in its heart, the soul searches all around it for that connection, yet often cannot find it.

This story is played out again and again in millions of different experiences in the physical plane beloved heart and is at the core of all stories of separation and disconnection that is held by humanity’s heart.

This first story then births the second story that creates the belief that you have been rejected from Source (cast out) and are not good enough to be held in the voidal waters of Source light connection and cannot call it to you through the vast planes of light. The soul cannot accept the Divine Plan and refuses to believe that it is meant to be in the physical experiences on the Earth learning its mastery of co-creation.  This is the first step in the soul’s free will in resistance to the Divine Plan.

Through the second original story the soul consciousness has created numerous experiences of pain and suffering in the human psyche beloved heart. These are constantly played out again and again through the many experiences you choose to create in your physical realm. This in turn often creates the belief that you have lost your power and are disempowered on the Earth. In turn this also creates the belief in being the victim and unable to create a reality for yourself that will nourish and voidal waters of light.

The third original story, dear heart, is the search for a replacement for the heart of Source. In this story the soul chooses to search for a new Source to nurture it and support it. The soul consciousness searches for this replacement in other souls, believing that their embrace, support and acceptance (what you may call love) will replace the memory they hold of the heart of Source. This original story has created trillions of experiences of ‘love’ and ‘conflict’ in your group consciousness, and has birthed all your books, songs and movies etc. as you began to sing and write of your experiences around this original story from the early times of your civilisations.

The fourth story was birthed from the third and of course is the story of loss and disappointment. It is here that beliefs of distrust, betrayal, disappointment, expectations unmet, frustration, rejection and loss of faith are birthed when the soul realises that the replacement it has chosen for the heart of Source is not what it is truly seeking.  In some way the soul comes to realise that this replacement cannot give it what it truly desires and so it believes it has been misled, or let down and it feels this loss deeply.

The fifth story begins only when the soul understands that all the other experiences have taken it outside of itself and the answer does not lie outside of itself. When the soul realises that the answer is embedded deeply within its own being then it begins its journey to go within and look for the answers that it seeks.

In this story the soul chooses to search for the heart of Source inside itself and proceeds to create many experiences around this story in its search for the seed of Source that is held within it. On this journey the soul is asked to look at all it has created in the physical plane of and around itself. This indeed may create many experiences of self-judgement and disconnection to the power of its light, as much as it creates experiences of reconnection to the light within the soul.

In this way the soul comes full circle and begins to understand and accepts the Divine Plan. The soul understands that to know mastery of the physical plane it needs to create this in the physical world of matter. It is asked to become the observer of its creations and the witness so it can master the wisdom of its creations without judgment and resistance. The soul comes to understand that through the Divine Plan and all that it experiences on the Earth in its search for the heart of Source it discovers the power of its light and the truth of what it is. When the soul chooses to surrender to this it comes to know its Mastery and no longer needs to believe it is a story for it no longer needs to confirm who and what it is.

Throughout each of these stories you are also learning about creation and your power to create in each moment the reality in which you live. As you live these original stories in the many experiences and permutations that you choose to create you are being shown the power of the light you hold within you to manifest your reality in each moment. Yet often because of these distortions to your original blueprint as a son and daughter of the God Source, you believe you must create alone and in separation to the heart of Source and the Divine Plan.

And so, dear heart, you continue to create in disconnection, in resistance and without the support that is always there for you until you move into the fifth story and begin to learn to co-create with the heart of Source in your full power of the light you are.

Each of these original five stories, dear heart, are played out in so many ways through the human psyche and cause you to create many experiences in your physical reality. Yet each one will eventually bring you back to the heart of Source within you.

So we ask you dear heart what story are you running and playing as your truth right now? Have you chosen to live through your divine blueprint or is it a distorted story of your divine truth?

Blessed be on your path to Mastery.

In’easa Mabu Ishtar.

 

Namaste with Love

‘Living in The Now’

Published 03/05/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

Screen shot 2012-11-16 at 11.40.17

Do you sometimes find yourself unable to let go of the past or stop worrying about the future? When I feel that way, I recall to mind a great Daoist story:

One day, while walking through the wilderness, a man encountered a vicious tiger. He ran for his life, and the tiger gave chase.

The man came to the edge of a cliff, and the tiger was almost upon him. Having no choice, he held on to a vine with both hands and climbed down.

Halfway down the cliff, the man looked up and saw the tiger at the top, baring its fangs. He looked down and saw another tiger at the bottom, waiting for his arrival and roaring at him. He was caught between the two.

Two rats, one white and one black, showed up on the vine above him. As if he didn’t have enough to worry about, they started gnawing on the vine.

He knew that as the rats kept gnawing, they would reach a point when the vine would no longer be able to support his weight. It would break and he would fall. He tried to shoo the rats away, but they kept coming back.

At that moment, he noticed a strawberry growing on the face of the cliff, not far away from him. It looked plump and ripe. Holding onto the vine with one hand and reaching out with the other, he plucked it.

With a tiger above, another below, and two rats continuing to gnaw on his vine, the man tasted the strawberry and found it absolutely delicious.

This story is all about living in the moment. Despite his perilous situation, the man chose not to let unrealized dangers paralyze him. He was able to seize the moment and savor it.

The story is full of metaphors. All the major elements in the story are representations that possess deeper meaning.

The top of the cliff represents the past. It’s where the man had been and where he came from. In terms of your personal timeline, this metaphor refers to all of your experiences and memories from the life that you have already lived.

Climbing up the vine, toward the top of the cliff, would be to revisit the past. The tiger at the top represents the danger of dwelling in the past too much. If we constantly beat ourselves up for not being able to do certain things as well as we should have, or if we wallow in regret and shame over mistakes we have made, then the tiger has wounded us with its sharp claws. If we cannot let go of negative experiences from the past that make us timid and afraid, or if we feel like victims because we come from a traumatic or perhaps abusive background, then the tiger has taken a painful bite out of us.

The tiger also represents the impossibility of going back in time to fix something. Sometimes we wish we can turn back the clock and do certain things over. Perhaps you think of the perfect comeback long after the right moment has passed; perhaps there was a special someone from high school that you should have approached but didn’t; perhaps you said something hurtful to a loved one and would do anything to take it back. Unfortunately, the pathway of time is a one-way street – the fearsome tiger guards the top of the cliff, and mere mortals may not pass.

The bottom of the cliff represents the future. It is the undiscovered country, the unwritten chapter. The future contains all of your dreams and fears, aspirations and disappointments, potential victories and possible setbacks. It is the mysterious and uncertain domain of tomorrow.

Climbing down the vine, closer to the bottom of the cliff, is to look ahead, anticipate and speculate about the future. The tiger at the bottom represents the danger of being excessively concerned about that which is yet to come — particularly at the expense of our ability to act, or to maintain peace of mind.

Many of us have had the experience of worrying endlessly about an upcoming performance, speech, or job interview. We think about all the things that can go wrong. We cannot get a good night’s sleep because we’re too nervous about the next day.

So what happens when the event comes around? Our inability to relax disconnects us from the creative genius of the Tao. We are not able to be at our best. We cannot channel all that nervous energy into effective action; instead, it turns right into tension and stress. We have climbed too low on the vine and gotten too close to the tiger, thus allowing it to cause us damage.

The tiger at the bottom also represents the ultimate finality of death. Death waits patiently for all of us in the future. It knows that sooner or later we will be within its grasp. When the tiger roars up at us, we feel the chilling winds of mortality.

The man’s position between the two tigers represents the present. Note that he hangs suspended in midair. In the same way, we too live suspended between the past and the future.

This thing we call “now” or “the present instant” can be quite an elusive concept. As soon as you point to an instant and define it as “now,” it slips past your finger and is no longer the present. Another instant, equally elusive, takes its place. No matter how hard you try, you will never be able to pin it down.

The present also defies definition, just like the Tao. Even though we can measure time with great accuracy, our technical precision gives us no help at all in isolating that infinitesimal slice of zero-duration time. Although we have the technology to build an atomic clock with error margin less than ten billionth of a second, all the atomic clocks in the world cannot capture the magic of the present instant.

Although an instant of time is beyond our grasp, the paradox of existence is that the present is what we do have. Indeed, it is all we ever have. You can never have the past or the future; one is irretrievably gone and the other is yet to come. The present is here and now, and it is yours completely and unconditionally. No one can take it away from you, and you alone have the power to decide how to use it.

The vine represents life in the material world. Just as the man holds on to the vine with both hands, we too cling to physical life stubbornly. Our survival instincts compel us to literally hold on for dear life, and we won’t let go without a struggle.

Climbing down the vine isn’t an optional activity. The man, chased by the tiger, has no choice but to climb down. Similarly, once we are born into this world, we have no choice but to live out our lives from one moment to the next. Thus, the vine can also be seen as the main component of samsara – the cycle of birth and death.

The two rats represent the passage of time. They are black and white in color for the simple reason that they symbolize day and night.

The rats gnaw on the vine, making it weaker and weaker. This represents how each cycle of day and night brings us a little closer to death. When the vine breaks, the man plummets toward certain doom. In the same way, when a sufficient number of days and nights have passed, the physical life we cling to will be broken, and it will be time for the ultimate finality of death. We will have no choice but to confront the tiger.

Just as the man tries to shoo the rats away, we try to forestall aging and keep disease at bay. We have entire industries devoted to various measures to keep us young and healthy or, at the very least, to maintain the appearance of youth and health. Consider all the vitamins, supplements, treatments, health spas, hormone replacement therapies, face lifts, liposuctions, hair transplants, all manners of implants… the list goes on.

But just as the rats keep coming back, time marches ever onward and slows down for no one. Despite our best efforts, our time in this mortal plane remains limited.

The strawberry represents the astounding beauty, bliss, energy and vitality of the present moment. It is always there, always available for those who have the ability to see it and experience it.

For instance, at this very moment you can reach out with your awareness and feel this miracle of communication that allows thoughts and ideas to pass between us. You can feel how amazing it is that this interpersonal connection is possible at all. There is a wonder and marvelous beauty right here that we cannot easily put into words.

Step outside and place yourself in communion with nature. Bear silent witness to the genius of the Tao at work. Perceive reality as an endless interplay of natural forces, swirling around you as well as within you. From the macrocosmic to the microcosmic, sense how natural processes go about their business, regulated by an intrinsic intelligence far beyond our grasp.

There is so much beauty and goodness in each present moment and the infinite instant, that if you were to take in too much at once, you would be hopelessly overwhelmed. In the language of our story, we might say that the strawberry is full of incredibly delicious juice.

To pluck the strawberry is to seize the moment. When you do so, you are being mindful of the present, directing your attention to the flow that moves through you, and choosing to immerse fully in the river of the eternal now.

To taste the strawberry is fully savor the flavor of reality. When you do so, you begin to appreciate the miracle of existence and notice a beauty that is ever-present no matter where you look. This fills your heart with gladness and gratitude.

Plucking and tasting the strawberry may be much easier said than done. Most of the time, most of us have trouble tapping into the powerful state of mindfulness that allow us to seize the moment and savor reality. There are obstacles that get in the way.

The first obstacle, which most Tao cultivators have overcome, is the lack of awareness. Many people live each day mired in the past or worried about the future, unaware of the treasure of the present that they already possess. In terms of the story, it is as if the man is so busy looking up and down that he never notices the succulent fruit right next to him.

The second obstacle is more difficult, and most of us encounter it from time to time. Consider a scenario where the man sees the strawberry, but because he’s too concerned about the tiger above and fearful of the tiger below, he has no appetite. Although he knows quite well where the strawberry is, he has no interest in getting it.

Someone who’s faced with this obstacle may say, “It’s great to understand the metaphors in the story, but there’s a difference between that and putting the understanding into actual practice. I can see now that my goal should be to live in the moment, but how exactly do I do that?”

The story offers a clue. When the man saw the strawberry, he held onto the vine with one hand and reached out with the other. This action incorporates two essential elements: letting go and reaching out.

The man could not pluck the strawberry if he insisted on holding on with both hands. With both hands gripping the vine tightly, all he could do would be to stare at it. In order to get the prize, he needed to relax one hand and detach it from the vine.

It is exactly the same with life. The vine represents our physical existence on this material plane. Holding on to it tightly is equivalent to having strong attachments to material concerns. With such attachments, you cannot let go. This is a sure-fire way to prevent you from enjoying the present.

It sounds simple when we talk about it like this, but think of the people you know who are so focused on making and saving money that they never take the time to enjoy life. If you observe them you’ll see that they cannot relax even when they go through the motions. For instance, when they take a vacation, they cannot stop thinking about the office. In the language of our story, such people have a death-grip on the vine.

I know of a gentleman whose attachment was the stock market. He was a day trader who watched the market minute-by-minute. When friends talked to him on the phone, they could always tell when his stock symbols scrolled across the electronic ticker tape, because his replies would suddenly become much slower as he pretended to be listening. This was a clear case where his strong attachment to material concerns completely blocked his ability to enjoy conversations with old friends – one of the best things in life.

The other element, equally important, is to reach out, to explore. The comfort zone may be comfortable, but it also offers nothing new. In order to get the strawberry, you need to venture beyond the familiar, to probe for a prize that is within sight but not quite within grasp.

The Tao manifests itself in life, and the characteristic of life is that it grows. Life is constantly exploring new territories, taking chances, and going places it hasn’t been before. If we do the same, we will quickly find that life is fresh and exciting and full of possibilities. We will see that living in the present is both easy and exhiliarating.

Thus, our story teaches that when we have trouble living fully and mindfully in the moment, we only need to ask ourselves questions like the following:

  • What are my attachments? What are some things I cannot let go? What attachments am I willing to release, in order to live life to the fullest?
  • Am I learning anything new? Meeting new people? Doing anything I haven’t done before? What might be some fun subjects that I can study? What might be some interesting projects I can tackle?

Your answers to questions like these will point out the path you should follow. Formulate your plans accordingly.

As you follow your plan of action to live mindfully in the moment, you will find it easier and easier to stop dwelling in the past or worrying excessively about the future. As you enjoy the present more and more, you will also find that unpleasant or even painful memories no longer affect you; concerns or even fears about future uncertainties no longer paralyze you.

You will find that the present is literally a wonderful present. It is a miraculous gift filled with peace, contentment, energy, and excitement. It is a box full of delicious strawberries.

You begin to realize that the only requirement to be deserving of such a gift is that you must accept it and enjoy it. You are amazed that there are people who cannot receive it. Some do not even realize it is being offered to them. They do not recognize it as their birthright, nor do they understand its incredible value.

You collect your thoughts back into yourself. It is time to unwrap your own present.

Namaste with Love

Always

My Day’s Filled With Nothingness!

Published 22/04/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I’m so sorry once again for being away from my blog so often, but I have once again been experiencing difficulties getting through to my blog due to the ‘Great China Firewall’. I do hope that I will be able to connect more often because I miss the interactions with you all, I miss reading your posts and I miss the ‘Group Heart’ that you are all so much a part of in my life 🙂

My day’s are filled with ‘Nothingness’, I guess I mean filled with no challenges, no pain, no anxiety, no wanting, just peace 🙂 ‘You should be grateful’, I hear you say 🙂 Yes my dear friends, I am so grateful, so grateful for all I have in my life because I am truly blessed, truly blessed with the awakening in my life, the spiritual journey that I am following, the lessons that have come to me during my lifetime thus far, the pains I have felt, the challenges I have faced, the love I have found and lost, the people that have come into and out of my life, grateful for each and every day.

This past year or so I have been working on my inner self, connecting with my Divine Self, opening and anchoring my channel pillar of Divine Connection in service to Mother Earth and the Heart of Humanity, this journey has opened my eyes to the hidden, my mind to the nothingness and my heart to the love and compassion that is so much a part of our existence. It has been a difficult and extremely challenging year which has brought me directly into the face of Karma, with Aspects, with Past Lives and with all the baggage left to me in this spiritual lifetime by endless reincarnations before me. And, although it has been a challenging, worrying, fearful and shocking experience, I have prevailed, I came out the other end of my learning with new knowledge, with open eyes, open heart, and a very open mind. My meditation practice has taken me on journeys through space and time, I have met with previous selves, seen their life, felt their pain and taken up their reigns in this lifetime, my life has changed, changed for the better, and I look forward to more days of ‘Nothingness’ in my life, day’s in which I can be of service to Humanity and Mother Earth.

I look forward to connecting with you all again soon my friends, may your weekend be filled with love and compassion and on this Full Moon day and as we enter into the Wesak Period, may you all be blessed with the Love of the Buddha 🙂

Namaste with Love

Living Life in the Present

Published 05/04/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

Paying attention to the present moment, rather than constantly getting lost in ruminative fantasies, that we learn most and can be best prepared for our lives.

Borkovec on the Present

This is a powerful passage and has a great deal of resonance with mindfulness practice.  Part of what we’re trying to do is to learn from life – but to learn, we need to be present. One definition of mindfulness is that it’s a state of mind where we can encode memories.  Mindfulness is a kind of alertness where the attention can actually absorb what is happening, moment-by-moment.

The only influence we have on the future is how well we tend to the present. By tending to what’s here and what’s now, and learning from what’s here and now, we grow in ways that should help us meet the future most effectively.

Imagining the Future: How good are we at predicting our emotional responses?

So much of anxiety is about imagining the future.  But how good are we at imagining our emotional future? How good are our predictions about how a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ event might make us feel? There is a whole body of research dedicated to these types of questions called affective forecasting.  Daniel Gilbert, the Harvard psychologist and author of Stumbling on Happiness, has become famous for this work. As it turns out, while we tend to be accurate guessing whether a particular event is likely to make us feel positive or negative, we tend to make important errors in other aspects of our predictions.  Specifically, we tend to overestimate the impact of particular emotional events.  That is, we believe that a particular event will have both a more intense and enduring effect on our emotional life.  Here is a summary of one of Gilbert’s articles:

Affective Forecasting

What is being suggested here is that we are actually more resilient than we tend to believe. We assume that we’ll have more trouble coping than we tend to have. When faced with a challenging situation, the mind quickly makes meanings and interpretations that help soften the impact and we feel better much faster than we tend to anticipate.  This is important for us to absorb.

All the Forks in All the Roads

The famous poem, The Road Not Taken, from Robert Frost:
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I–
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

It’s a lovely poem – but we want to make a different point than the one that’s usually made about this poem.  When we pay attention to our minds, it feels like we’re always coming to a fork in the road. Each decision, each uncertainty, each possibility – it seems we’re at a new fork, standing before two roads that diverge. We usually assume that one road is the right way and one road is the wrong way – and if we just think hard enough, we’ll figure out which is which.  But is this true? How many times do we truly come to fork in the road that is truly an important fork? And can we always know which is the “right” path?

Some of what mindfulness practice shows us is that there are actually fewer forks than we think and that even what seemed like a fork, in retrospect, may not be of major importance. We probably have all had that experience where we thought our lives were riding on the outcome of something specific – but later realize that it actually didn’t matter much which way it turned out.  Both roads have joys and sorrows.  Both roads have pleasure and pain and gain and loss.  Sometimes the road that seems less preferable has things to teach us we could never imagine.

Namaste with Love

Every Single Soul Blossoms in It’s Own Time and In It’s Own Way

Published 10/03/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

  
My Dear Friends,

I managed to get a VPN connection on my phone this morning so I thought I would take this wonderful opportunity to create a short post while I’m blessed with this connection and freedom 😄

Every Single Soul blossoms in it’s own time and in it’s own way! ….Wow, how true is that statement?

All through life we push and challenge ourselves…. Push to learn more, push to achieve more, push to earn more, push to have more….Then, for some, we realise for what! Why have we been pushing ourselves all through life? …We realise that our Soul is calling us back, back to its roots, we realise that all this ‘Stuff’ in our lives that we have worked so hard for is in fact just ‘Stuff’, and the real value to our lives is often still not found, so we set off on a journey of self discovery, ‘Who am I’? ‘Why am I here’? ‘What is my life’s purpose ‘? And for many, this leads to a spiritual awakening that often leads to much more. For me, this happened many years ago, brought on by a series of traumas in my life, death, infidelity, accidents, serious injuries, near death experiences, depression or what I thought was depression,but in fact was a deep spiritual awakening, then amazing connections to spiritual masters, Guru’s, different belief systems, ancient cultures and to meditation, channeling for the Ascended Masters and the realisation that this was the doing of my Soul, my Divine Self, calling me home, once more calling me into the light of all that I am 😄🙏🏻

But, during this journey of my own self discovery, I too have pushed myself, allowed my Ego Mind and Free Will to conjure up stories and allowed them to question my journey, to push me once again to challenge my inner self , to challenge my beliefs, to challenge the speed in which I move forward , always there to question and place doubts on my abilities and to try and put a stop to my awakening to all that I am!

My dear friends, I have no timeframe attached to my journey of self discovery, I have given myself in service to ‘Source’ to my Divine Higher Self and my life is full of joy, happiness is with me everyday and I give thanks for all that I am and all I have in my life, and I know that ‘Every Single Souls blossoms in it’s own time and in it’s own way, so, my dear friends, if you feel stuck, if you feel afraid , if you feel your journey of self discovery has hit a roadblock then never fear, all will be right for you when the Divine Timing is right for you🙏🏻

Namaste, with Love

Allow The Golden Age To Fill You

Published 05/03/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

Channel From Saint Germain by IneasamabuIshtar

Welcome, our beloved to this day. It is a fortuitous time. Many right now are filled with sadness and grief, and many are filled with an emptiness and loneliness.

They seek to be filled again and do not where to turn. There is little to nourish them and they have been taught to turn outwards to fulfil their emptiness. When we say to them to turn inwards they do not know where that is and when they do try they find it empty – they cannot see the beauty within them. For even in the turning inwards they are trapped in the illusion of physical matter, which they have created for themselves.

It is very difficult for them to let this go and to release it in order to find the freedom to fly without being held in this illusion.

We ask that you live in the moment, not in the illusion of time. We ask you to accept your true nature, the beings of light that you are. It is time to remember who you are and to awake from your long self-induced sleep.

It is time for you now to be that which you have always been and to fly free of the shackles you have placed around yourselves.

We ask you our beloved ones to accept now that which is in the moment and to be that which is. Live the being that you are on the Earth and not the being you have created to fit the mould or the place in which you abide. Choose to remove the layers of eons of time and simply be that which you are.

Yes, dear ones, we understand there is fear and resistance to that which is, but there is no longer the need to hide all that you are. Your greatness is your weapon of existence. Your love and your light are what will create the new time of light that is fast approaching. Wake up now our children and move with this as it expands. Unleash your fear, look it in the eye and tell it you no longer need to fear that which is not. Only love that which is now.

Your Earth is moving at a greater velocity even in these past months she has grown and changed. It has brought much change to all, has it not? Even in your self-induced sleep, you have felt it, have you not?

You have felt the energy rise and move and uncoil as she begins her momentous metamorphosis. As she moves and turns it is right for those beings that live within her energy to also move within themselves, like butterflies beginning the last stage of change before emerging from their cocoons.

Listen to your hearts dear ones, and move with the rhythm of your heart and know this is your truth. Do not be dissuaded from this path by those who cling to their fears, for these too will dissipate and move in time to the rhythm of change that is over the Earth right now.

Yes, dear ones there are those who do not wish this change and they are doing much to arrest it and stop it but it is a force that cannot be arrested. It will move onwards no matter what these ones do and eventually they too will be encapsulated by this change, this movement into greatness.

When the golden light of the Christ consciousness (God self) threads its way through your very veins and energy fields you will feel the tingling it creates. Understand its subtle energies and what it says to you. Call upon it to assist you in every waking moment. It is the time of the golden light; the golden age is what it is. This energy is all powerful and all enveloping. It is soft and subtle and filled with a richness that you will find will fill every little crevasse and hollow of your being. Slowly it will come and slowly it will move through you, so as not to overawe you in its beauty. But come it will. Choose not to turn your face from it, or avert your eyes and cry that nothing is happening for you in this world. Simply open your heart to the love that is and feel its wonder. This love is not the love of which you speak about from your ego minds, this is not the love of matter. Understand the difference, for sometimes what you seek is no that which is. This love of the Christ consciousness will fill your energy bodies and your soul with warmth and compassion, it is fulfilling not overwhelming.

It is not of the passion or of the drama that you so like to call your love on this plane. It is the unconditional love of the Christ consciousness, which will be for you like no other energy you have ever felt. Yet somewhere in your being, you will recognise this love and you will feel drawn to it. It will make you feel you are safe, it will make you feel whole again, like a returning home of sorts.

It will make you feel like you are filled and you are connected to all that is even though you physically stand here alone and single. It will make you feel like the denseness you are and you will understand the greater being that you are within this denseness.

You will understand your connection to all things. Slowly and bit by bit you will begin to feel this connection to all that is. In the breeze, in the sound of the birds, in the swaying of the trees, in the movement of the wind as it whistles past your ears. In instances, you will stop and listen or look with open eyes understanding of all that is.

You will feel the outer edges of your being pulled into this energy and into this movement, into this symphony of consciousness and your being will tingle with a knowing that you cannot describe and that the mind itself cannot comprehend.

It will simply be a fleeting feeling at first but one that you will turn to over and over again in understanding.

You will wonder why such a short moment in time has become such a big moment in your mind. Something you keep turning to, for as much as that fleeting second that you experienced it in the first place. And then you will understand that it is All that Is.

It is in the now in the moment, in that brief fleeting second when all is as it is and you will begin then to move into that space more frequently in your mind.

This space of consciousness is when the mind is allowed to stop and your true nature takes over from the mind. Choose to allow it to flow for you and try not to let the mind take over again very quickly for that is what it will try to do as it becomes concerned when it is not in control.

Allow the mind to take a short mini holiday from the helm and simply allow your true nature to drive the ship for a change. Allow this to occur in this time and feel the wonder of this experience. Return to it whenever you feel called and this feeling will grow.

The Christ energy will grow within you. Your God nature will emerge like the butterfly from its cocoon and you will walk on the Earth with new sight and intensity. Try it our beloveds…we guarantee you will like it.

Namaste with Love

Channel from Lord Buddha

Published 25/02/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I visited the Jade Buddha Temple in Shanghai again yesterday morning, this is my local Buddhist Temple and one in which I visit regularly, say my prayers, give my offerings to the Buddha, to my family, ascended family, guides and masters.

On yesterdays visit after I had done my prostration prayers I stood and did a standing meditation in front of the Buddha and I asked him if he would honour me with his grace and channel through me and last night as I slept I received a visit by the Lord Buddha, here are some of his words from that channel.

Dear one, this is the Buddha that has stepped forth to you today, you came to me and asked for a connection to you and here I am. I will share with you today some of my thinking and offer you my support as you continue along your journey of self-discovery. I too set out on a journey of self discovery, I meditated as you do in the hope of finding myself and understanding impermanence, the cause of suffering and what brings happiness and peace to our hearts. During my journey I was joined by many others, this was not my intention; as my journey was my own journey, however these others were also following their own journey of self discovery so they joined me and formed a Sangha where we sat in circle as you do and meditated and contemplated upon our own journeys. It is; Dear One my thought that by creating a circle the collective consciousness and energy of that circle helps raise the frequencies of all within the collective, and enables each one to attain understanding earlier. We must however remember that no journey of self-discovery is alike and we will ascend at different times; as and when we are ready. There is no time limit Dear One and it may not happen within your physical lifetime, but it will happen through Samsara. Remember Dear One that nothing is permanent, everything in life is in a constant flow moving forward; never back, and it is important for you to understand this, because all that you see is not real, only a fabrication and story of what your ego mind tells you about that experience. Life as you see it is based upon how you act or react to each situation that is presented to you, if you choose to judge or act in anger, with hatred or fear then you will create a Karmic reaction that will stay with you and your reincarnations for ever more, so please Dear One choose to act with non-judgement, react or respond with love and compassion and always be open to receive love and compassion as you travel your pathway. I see Dear One that like so many others you seek answers, seek knowledge and seek happiness and love but also remember Dear One that ‘Life is in the being, not in the knowing’, so do not waste your life searching for what is already inside you Dear One, allow yourself to open fully to the light, give up your ego mind and submit to your Divine Will and offer yourself in service to source and you will find your peace and live your happiness.

Blessed Be All Beings, Blessed Be All Beings, Blessed Be All Beings.

Namaste with Love

What Is Love ?

Published 25/02/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends

A wonderful channel from Lady Nada by In’Easa Mabu Ishtar

Today is the time to talk of love that which you talk about all the time. But what is love? Is it some kind of dream you have before waking up to find it is all an illusion? For many of you this may be true. But know this dear hearts – love simply is.

Love is in everything you do and see, everything you touch, everything around you. Love is an energy of consciousness and not an emotion or feeling. Now let us be clear on this. We are not talking about love in terms of romantic love. We are talking about the energy of consciousness called love and this is a very different thing to your third-dimensional love.

God’s consciousness is love, therefore it is in everything as God is in everything. But sometimes you can’t see it because you are seeking something else. God’s love is not about redemption, dear hearts. There is no redeeming here. God does not need to redeem anything from its love consciousness. This energy simply is as it is. God’s love is not conditional. It does not rely on an unspoken contract or agreement with you or another party to exist. There is no win win here.

Many of you understand love as being a conditional thing. For you it is an emotion that can only exist if your desires and needs are met. I will love you if… you love me back, you give me diamonds, you support and nurture me, and on it goes. Such an endless list of wants and desires.

This is not love. This is an agreement based on an emotional response. Yet this is the love you exchange with each other every day. With all your “loved” ones – mothers, fathers, children, lovers, husbands and partners, friends and acquaintances.

The consciousness of love itself does not need to be created by you for it already exists in everything that is, dear hearts. In every cell of your being there is love. In every part of the Earth in nature there is love. When you look around with your heart open and your eyes clear from the veils of illusion you will see the consciousness of love in everything,

Love is not the emotional experience of highs and lows. Divine Love leaves its wondrous energy around you and offers peace and calm, an acceptance of all that is. Love lives in the moment, it is not something that has to be recalled from the past or sent into the future. It just is.

Divine love, dear ones, asks nothing for or of itself. It does not require agreements or exchange to exist, It just is. It is always with you, yet sometimes you are unable to see it because you are so caught in the web of your emotions and beliefs about what love is. These emotions will distract you from many things and from seeing that which is right in front of you. It really is not so difficult. It is simple, dear hearts, so we ask you to avoid making it so complicated. It is easy to connect with the divine consciousness of love, avoid making it so hard for yourself. Allow it to flow in your heart and mind.

When so many of you call for love, saying I want some love in my life, some happiness, you are not calling for God’s divine love you are calling for someone else to fulfil you and walk with you on your path. You are asking that someone else give you the ‘love’ and nurturing you feel you are unable to give yourself.

You desire someone else to make you feel better about who you are, to recognize you, to confirm you in some way and to give you the self-esteem you seem unable to give yourself. You are asking of another to create a contract or agreement of exchange with you. You are saying… “I want someone to come along who will love me…. I want someone who will come along and make me feel good about myself. If they do that I will shower them with my emotional and physical love. But if I stop feeling good about myself at any time I will withdraw my love immediately.”

Love is not a contract, beloved hearts. Love simply is. This love you speak of in your physical realm does not fulfil you, which is why so many of your bondings and relationships end up in sadness and tears. This is because your contracts have not been fulfilled. Whenever you have made silent agreements with others you will always find disappointment because no other can fulfil your needs about yourself.

Only you can create your life, dear ones. In the same way you cannot do someone else’s path or journey then accept that another is unable to do your path or journey. The responsibility for your path and your experience here on Earth lies with all that you choose to create for yourself.

We are not saying to avoid relationships with other beings on the Earth, dear hearts, this is not so. We are saying that when you have opened your heart and mind to receive God’s love within yourself you will see it and recognize it in everything and everyone else.

When you choose to open to this, then your relationships will be supported by this energy of love – unconditional love. All will be in every moment in peace and harmony with everything else. The emotions will not need to be fed and feelings such as fear, judgement and anger will have no cause to arise.

There will be no agreements in your relationships with other beings because you will love unconditionally all beings. You will also not feel you are separate or alone, dear ones, because you will feel as one with all beings and all things. You will see that you are never alone. You are always uplifted and supported by other beings. You will understand you are a beloved child of the universe.

Now, we say to you dear ones,  to see and understand God’s love appears to be an impossible task for many in the physical realities you are choosing to create on the Earth. But in truth this is what you seek in every moment. You seek this fulfilment because deep within you know it exists because you have felt it so many times before when you have chosen to open your heart and mind to receive from the heart of Source.

The path to God’s love is not so difficult, dear ones. In fact, it can be an adventure. Think of it as fun and a game. To see God’s love in every waking moment is simply a matter of making a choice each and every day – choose to see God’s love all around you. Release all emotions as they surface within you and let go all beliefs of separation. As you feel your emotions and thought forms them bubbling up announce them out loud to yourself and honor them. Become conscious and aware and then choose to release them to God. In this way, dear hearts, your emotions and thought forms will not cloud you from seeing what your divine truth.

Choose to live your life in harmony and create balance in your four bodies – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. Live not in the one over the others. Understand that you do not have to seek God’s love nor do you have to try and create it, for it is always with you. You only need to lift the veils of your mind and heart and you will see it and feel it. When choose to walk consciously in God’s divine heart then you will find all that you seek. Blessings on your journey into the one heart of love.

 

Namaste with Love

Washing Away Years Of Pain

Published 15/02/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

12705735_10153941040108185_624648936203906629_n

My Dear Friends,

Once again I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately; but I have been spending so much time channeling, connecting with my higher self and generally working on the things that have been holding me back in my life. Most of the time has been spent understanding who I really am, and then; understanding what I really want for the rest of this physical life! Where is this life taking me? What am I looking for? and How do I want to proceed?

Where is this life taking me? What am I looking for? and How do I want to proceed?

Simple right?

No!

Going into deep meditation, connecting with my higher self and connecting with my soul has not been easy, it took lots of practice; many thousands of hours in meditation, calming and controlling the ego mind, asking it to step aside and to go with the flow. Then step by step connecting with my own ‘Group Heart’, all the beings that have made up my life/s through all space, time and dimensions, all my previous incarnation lives, their souls and their aspects. This is a fantastic process and sometimes you think you have it all in place, life is good, the spiritual pathway is opening up fully for you then…. ‘BAM’… another aspect or Karmic problem smacks you right in the face!!! and everything comes to a screeching halt!

This is part of the journey my friends, dealing with what you think are all your problems, the stories of old that hold you back, the Karmic problems that you have created through actions/reactions in the past, judgement of others; etc. These are just the tip of the iceberg to say the least, because there may be possibly thousands of issues coming to face you on your journey, E.g, you may be in a meditation, meditating on say ‘Love’ and all is looking good, then all of a sudden you experience a pain, maybe it’s in the heart or in the neck, the leg, the shoulder; or anywhere else in your body, but when you finish the meditation the pain goes away so you think nothing of it, then perhaps on another occasion you are once again meditating on love and the pain comes back again; but once again after the meditation has finished the pain mysteriously goes away!….What does this mean? Are you sick?…..No, it’s more likely that the pain is brought on by one of your ‘Aspects’, this could be from a previous life or could be from another part of your being from another dimension (way too much info to think about in this post 🙂 ) This Aspect may have had a problem with love, maybe their heart was broken, maybe they were even killed or severely injured because of love, in the pursuit of love, who knows! So in order to move on with your life you have to go into meditation and try to connect with the part of you that is in seperation with you regarding love, because, unless you resolve this seperation with this Aspect and bring them into your group heart consciousness; the problem will never go away, and you will always have issues when it comes to love. Now, this is not just about love, the same thing goes for health, life, feelings, friendships, family, work, situations, the way you act, react to situations etc…This list is endless so like ducks in a line you need to deal with the Aspects as and when they come up for you,

Now, this is not just about love, the same thing goes for health, life, feelings, friendships, family, work, confrontational situations, the way you act or react to situations, challenges in your life; etc…The list is endless, so; like ducks in a line you need to deal with the Aspects as and when they come up for you, it’s no good brushing them under the carpet in the hope that they will go away because guess what? They won’t go away!

Once you clear all these issues with old Karma and Aspects then life is good and once again you move forward on your journey but always remember that there may be setbacks ahead of you, so when they come up, don’t judge them, don’t brush them under the carpet, go into meditation, find out what is causing you this pain, making you act or react in this way as it may well be an Aspect or a Karmic bond that you need to deal with before you can set sail again 🙂

I hope this helps you on your journey of understanding, my friends?

Namaste, with Love

Always

Open Your Heart To Change

Published 10/02/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

CW5cforWQAA2ebB

My Dear Friends,

Beautiful words from the Masters by 

The tides of energy are turning and changing right now on the Earth as we begin to step into the new age of evolution for each soul. We are being called to lift our consciousness and expand our hearts and minds and, as the many rays of light flood the planet to support us in this endeavour, there is still much resistance to this new way of being in the heart of humanity. We are still choosing to play out the old karma that is held within us before we resolve it and become free of the bonds of our attachments.

As a collective of souls, hu-mans are beginning to move into a new phase of becoming all that we are and we are opening and changing the consciousness of our being. This is a process of growth and adaptation as we transform the old into a new way of being. It is the alchemy that is occurring between the ego mind and the higher consciousness as they begin to reconnect and it will bring many changes to the individual soul as well as to the collective. This is occurring for everyone across the planet and many can feel it.

Yet we are being asked to hold patience in our hearts, for patience is needed as we move through this process. It cannot be speeded up to suit your impatience, dear heart, all will flow as it is needed.

We are also being asked to let go of the consciousness that creates separation in our minds and hearts and to allow all in the collective to play their part and bring the gifts they hold to the group heart so all may grow through all they have come to learn.

The Earth too is shifting and this energy is creating chaos and change across the Earth for many people. Yet remember that out of chaos comes amazing rebirth and regeneration. For new growth change and destruction is often required and the Masters ask us not to be so sad about this. It is what is, our beloveds.

When the chaos causes death and destruction the Masters ask us to understand that all those who leave their bodies do not truly leave us, they are simply changing and shifting their reality from the physical to another vibration or way of being and their soul knows this vibration well. As this shift is created for them they will rejoice in this new way of being and move forward on their journey. Celebrate and honor their new vibration of energy.

The Masters tell us that the Earth is growing and her womb is turning and getting ready for birth. This transformation will continue for some time until she is ready to ascend, yet these Earth changes will create more change of consciousness for everyone who stands on the Earth in all their forms as all are needed in the group heart to support this new creation in the Universe.

The Masters ask us not to be afraid, for all is as it is, our beloveds. They ask you to hold the love in your heart and allow the energy of the pure light to pulse through you. Whenever you feel afraid they ask you to call to them, the angels or your guides and allow them to assist you and hold you in sacred space. Open your hearts to receive the support that is there for you.

Choose to open up your hearts and allow the Light to flow through you and when you have received it fully then send it out through your open heart to all beings on the Earth who feel they are suffering. Send your love out to these ones and share with them the light rays of your heart.

Every time you hear of chaos and change on the Earth or feel people are suffering anywhere, choose not to close your heart and berate those in power or those responsible for creating this chaos. Simply open your heart and allow the light rays to flow through you. Channel them using your breath from your crown chakra and send the light to your heart and then out to all people who are suffering, as well as those you believe to be the perpetrators and are wishing to blame. Send pure light instead of blame and anger.

There is no one to blame, our beloveds. There is nothing to blame, our beloveds, all is as it is. The Masters ask you to accept this and call upon the light to flood through you and send this love and light out to all who may only see the suffering and pain, send the light out to all who can only see the darkness.

Share with them the light so they may stand in the Light of Source even as they believe they are suffering. Assist them to connect with the light of Source so they may know its transformational power and its ability to cleanse the spirit of the illusion of physical matter.

Allow this to flow through you in every moment, our beloveds. Every time you hear or see anything that makes you feel fear in your heart or sadness and pain, the Masters ask you to call to the light of Source to flow through you in this very moment. Choose to not step into the illusion.

Call on the light of Source and allow it to flow throughout your being so that you may then share this pure light with others on the Earth who have walked into the illusion of pain and suffering.

Do this, our beloveds, and the illusion of darkness will change to light and love. Do this, our beloveds, and your hearts will open and sing.

Do this, our beloveds, and love will pour forth from you in a golden ray of hope and joy.

Do this, our beloveds, and the world will change and be as one with Source in the one heart of All that Is.

Do this, our beloveds, and you will know peace and joy. We love you.

Namaste with Love

My Dear Friends,

During my morning meditation and whilst sitting in love with my own Group Heart, I was blessed by Kuan Yin coming to our Group Heart and offering a message for me, below is the message that I recorded and it is typed, word for word.

Blessings of Love to you dear hearts, this is Kuan Yin that steps to you today on this eve of the Chinese Lunar New Year, the year of the Red Fire Monkey, I step to you today to give you these words and during the year of the Fire Monkey there will be a great deal of time and opportunity for you to open your hearts, to hold out your hands to others who are in need, who are in need of love and compassion for their lives. These opportunities will be placed to you throughout the year of the Fire Monkey and it is you and your Divine Will that will decide on whether you act or react on these opportunities, to extend out your Divine Love and your Divine Compassion as it is your will. I say to you Dear Hearts that by offering yourself in service as a disciple of God; of Source, you will reap the benefits of receiving whilst you also give. Because by the act of giving you are also receiving; as you share you receive, as you hold out your hand to one in need; you will receive a hand in return to support you in your spiritual journey. I say to you Dear Hearts to open your heart, give of your love and compassion freely and the enlightenment that you will receive will be with you for all of your days, through all space, time and dimensions. Your group heart will benefit also from this generosity that you give, and your energy, your frequencies will grow as you expand. Your expansion of love and compassion has no bounds as the more you give; the more your will receive, the more you give; the more you will receive. Give of your love freely and remember dear hearts to also open your hearts to receive the love in return, for you dear one are a being of light; in service to God, to Source, so you too; may share in the love and compassion that humanity holds for you. This is my gift to you on the Eve of the Chinese Lunar New Year, may you be blessed with loving kindness, compassion and harmony and may you move through the Year of the Fire Monkey in good health, in good spirits and may you be successful in all that you do. Namaste dear ones, Namaste.

Busy Channeling

My Dear Friends,

I’m so, so sorry for not making the time to write on my blog lately but I have been so busy lately doing channelling sessions, connecting with my Soul, My Divine Presence and setting up my Group Heart Consciousness. This is all great but also very draining for me and when I come to write on my blog my mind is so calm and at ease that it is ‘Mindless’ so I guess my Meditations and Mindfulness are working wonders 🙂

I am also creating lots of codes that come up during my channelling sessions and also speaking more in Ancient language and Light Languages, these gifts are also gaining strength and becoming part of my everyday 🙂

I also notice that my clairempath abilities are also building rapidly and my emotions are on hightened alert to suffering in myself of in others, the slightest thing, slightest sign of suffering causes my emotions to flow in the form or tears, physical or mental pain etc.

My pathway is becoming more clear as I work on my Group Heart Consciousness and as we come together into the ‘One Heart’ presence of all that we are, I can clearly see, feel and sence all the gifts that all my beings from all time, space and dimensions bring to our collective group heart. These gifts are meant to be made manifest for the benefit of humanity here on Earth and as I move forward on this journey I/we will bring these gifts to you.

I feel blessed, thankful and so grateful that I have chosen to walk this spiritual pathway and I look forward to being of service to Humanity and Mother Earth as we continue to walk in the light of ‘Source’ 🙂

Namaste, with Love

Always

The Earth from the Hubble Telescope, What a Delicate Place we Live In!

Published 02/02/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

 

I came across this wonderful picture today taken from the Hubble Telescope and after looking at it for a few minutes, It looks like the world is being held in the loving embrace of an Angels wings, which then got me thinking just how delicate our world is and how we need to do something to protect it.

I have written about our environment many times, however, like many who write on environmental issues; most readers think it will be all sorted out for them, someone else will make the effort to stand up and be counted, someone else will go out and clean up their local area, someone else will go on a march re climate change or pollution to our environment.

So many people look at the news and see the devastation that is happening to our environment all around the world, oil spills, water pollution, fracking, toxic waste dumping, but very few people will actually do anything unless it happens on their doorstep, and I mean on their doorstep, most people won’t even do anything if it happens in their country, their county, or their city…. so unless it’s on their doorstep; they just turn a blind eye and say, ‘ it’s not my problem’!

However, it is our problem because to use the following example, the terrible radiation leak from the Tsunami hit Nuclear plant in Japan is now polluting the oceans of our world, millions of fish, Whales, Dolphins and sea creatures in the Pacific Ocean are dying because of this natural disaster! So, will you do anything if all of a sudden you cannot eat any fish from the ocean? or You cannot go into the ocean for a swim when you are on holiday in the Philippines, Thailand, Indian Ocean, Australasia, West Coast of America, Hawaii, Chile, Argentina, Mexico etc?

I wish we could lift our heads, take notice and take ownership; because we are ‘ALL’ part of the problem (as consumers) and we are all capable of doing something about it, we can stop buying goods that pollute our environment, we can stop using plastic bags, buying plastic bottles of juice, water etc, we can source from more environmentally friendly companies, we can join a local clean up group, we can sign a petition to save our planet, there is so much we can do to make change happen, but as long as we say ‘It’s not my problem’ then we will NEVER make CHANGE HAPPEN!

We live on a beautiful planet, that looks after us each and every day, now my dear friends, it’s our turn to do the looking after….

Go on, do your bit, it will make you feel Sooooooooo Goood 🙂

Namaste with Love

What Does Success Mean To You?

Published 28/01/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear friends,

‘Success’…What does it mean to you?

Many people; in fact millions, tens of millions are constantly looking for ‘Success’, every day pushing forward trying to achieve it…but what is it?…Is success measured by wealth, how much money you have in your bank? Is it measured by the car that you drive, the size of your house, the job that you have, the job title you hold, the academic qualifications you achieve, how fit and healthy you are, the clothes that you wear, the holidays you take, the number of friends you have, how much you spend on ‘stuff’….What is success? and; how do you achieve it?

Food for thought my friends, food for thought!

I live in a society that holds achievement as a benchmark for success, I.e, you must gain the highest grades in your school life, then the highest grades and ranking in your university life, then gain further qualifications like an MBA; of course with the highest grade, then get the best job title with the best and biggest company, buy a car, buy a house get married and have a baby as quickly as possible because even this shows ‘success’, buy expensive clothes, top fashion brands, fancy watch, jewelry, send your child to the best school, give them extra classes so they learn more, achieve more and become successful!…Nothing wrong with wanting the best in life for yourself and your family…but, does it bring you success?

This, of course; depends on your evaluation of what success really means to you… and I often see all of the above bringing ‘No’ happiness to so many each and every day. People, friends, colleagues etc who are so tired, so stressed, so challenges, living in the past and also the future, with little or no love for themselves and or any idea what happiness really means to them, with circles of friends that most often are just along for the ride and then I look at what I see in the eyes of people in countries like Bhutan where their GDP as a country is based on ‘Gross National Happiness’, these people are not rich, they don’t have all the ‘fancy’ things in life, but they do have happiness, they live in the ‘now’, they have love in their hearts, they hold compassion for others and they are successful because each and every day for them is a ‘gift’ and they hold that as a measurement of their success.

Success to me means happiness, happiness means understanding who I am and holding love for myself, giving love to others, being grateful for what I have in my life and doing my best to give something back to my community, to humanity and to mother earth.

I may sound idealistic but that for me is success!

How about you?

Namaste, with Love

Surrender to Receive all that you Need

Published 26/01/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

11227938_10208811670198191_5135480313477314544_n

Wow!…I have always had problems with this statement.. ‘Surrender to Receive all that you Need’. Like many, I have been travelling my own life’s journey and to date that’s about 55 years and 210 day’s to be precise in my case 🙂 and I still have trouble with the letting go, the surrender of the past!

The past is the past and it should firmly remain in the past. The future is the future and it should firmly remain in the future. The only thing we have for sure is ‘Now’, the present moment, all that we do, ‘EVER’ is in the ‘Present Moment’, so why do we waste so much time thinking of the past and worrying about the future?…Our previous life experiences, good or bad; play perfectly into the hands of our Ego Mind, adding fuel to the Ego’s fire and allowing it to hold us hostage with previous life experiences especially if the were bad, caused us trouble, held us back etc. And the uncertainty of the future, what it holds in store for us does exactly the same thing, allowing our Ego Mind to take yet another opportunity to cause us grief, ‘Your not worthy of that, you will fail at that, “Remember when you did that before and it caused you this problem? ‘so you had better not do that again’…and on and on these old thought patterns control us. Memories are good and they allow us to equip ourselves as we move forward but we do our lives a major injustice when we allow our Ego Minds to control who we are and from reaching our full potential.

Living our life in the ‘Now’ is perfect when we read about it in books, listen to self-help recordings, attend seminars, training programs and self-help groups but the reality is like the never ending diet, we try, then try, then try and try again but we just can’t stop that Ego Mind, that little demon on our shoulder from saying, “Watch out for that”, ‘Don’t do that”, ‘Remeber what happened before”, “you will fail at that”, “you will never loose weight”, etc, etc, etc, So in my opinion, and for what it’s worth my advice is…….

“Stick With It”…..Meditate often, everyday if you can, break free from what holds you back, from what ties you down and ‘Just Be’, ‘Just Breathe’, connect with your inner self, meditate and go into your heart, love yourself for what you are ‘Now’ and for what you ‘Have in your life now’, be grateful for all that you are and ‘Just Be You’, let go of all the pressures that surround your day and ‘Let Go’ to ‘Receive something far greater than your own plan allowed’ and you will find ‘Peace and Love’ because my friends, they ‘lie within’.

Blessings to you all my friends, may your meditations take you to your heart and connect you to your soul 🙂

Namaste, with Love

Always

Opening Your Eyes and then Opening Your Heart to the Plight of Others

Published 20/01/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I have been thinking a lot lately about my own life and what that means to me and the people around me. My wife shared two videos with me a couple of days ago, video footage of my wife and a dear friend of ours who spoke about my recent death experience and what it meant to them, to their feelings, how that day affected them and what I mean to them. This was a wonderful and very moving experience for me, to see and hear my wife say how devastating that event was for her, how she saw me die in front of her, how she saw the paramedic working on me in the ambulance, the shock of seeing my heart racing to the point of giving up its struggle and to hearing my words as I was brought back to the land of the living, then to hear her words, her feelings and her observations of me since that event, her worries, her concerns and her fear of loosing me again, then also to see and hear the words of our friend, to see her tears, to feel her heartbreak and the effects that that day brought to her. This was a truly humbling and eye opening visualisation for me, I knew my wife was hurting as I saw her tears but the true depths of her hurting was kept from me because she did not want me to worry! And the words of our friend, her heartfelt testimony of what I mean to her, how I brought her together with my wife, how I suggested she tried a form of yoga that she may like even though she herself is a very experienced yoga teacher and the spiritual awareness I hold for her, these words really touched my heart and made me think again about my life and the life of others around me.

I came across this video again today and although I have posted it before, I felt the need to post it again; because I / we, and all of humanity needs to check in with reality once in a while, for us all to open our eyes and our hearts to the plight of others and stand up and be counted, to actually do some good, to help someone in need, to give out and share our love, for Humanity, for Mother Earth and for all Beings

Namaste with Love

Always
