Now is the Time to Awaken

Recently I was contemplating all of the things that seem to fill our human lives: birth, death, wanting, receiving, suffering, enjoying, loving, waiting, searching, working, trying, laughing, crying, or just being… Life is a journey filled with so many perspectives, feelings, and states of being. Sometimes I find myself asking the age-old human question:

“What is it all for? Why?”

And so I put this simple question to my Angels today, then rested in quiet, listening for them for a while. A few moments later, I heard geese calling out above, and then the gentle patter of rain began to fall as if to punctuate the Angels’ answer:

“Life is you realizing that you are God.”

I took in a deep, slow breath and spent a few moments reflecting on that. “Even the difficult moments?” I thought. “Even our moments of doubt?” Though my heart knew the answer was yes, I wanted to hear the Angels’ perspective.

Channeled Angel Messages:

No “problem” or moment of suffering can possibly deter you from realizing that you are one with God. Every step you take is a step taken into the heart of God, without exception. Even the illusion of separation and suffering gently knocks upon the inner doors of awakening, beckoning you to open and receive.

Life is a cosmic dance in awakening. Each breath, moment, feeling, thought, and lesson serve as signposts that lead back to the divine—to the realization of who and what you are in truth.

Would you like to know how to answer the call to awaken? Greet each experience with love, kindness, and compassion. For it is empathy that will guide your sense of self into expansion— into full realization of who you are beyond the seemingly “individual” human you. It is part of your destiny to realize selfhood as the collective human race, as all Earthly life forms, and as the whole of the universe. “You” are one with all, and in realization of your completeness, heavenly joy, peace, and harmony reign supreme.

“Thank you, Angels.” I thought. Their words felt so humbling, as if all of life’s questions and yearnings were being directed back to the simple act of offering love. No matter what you meet in this life, and what perspectives or states of being life triggers within you, remember that your only task is to offer love. Offer love, and hold the humble intention in your heart to awaken to the truth. This is how we work miracles.

Balancing Empathic Sensitivity

Let’s face it. 2020 has been a roller coaster ride for a lot of us. The world has seen so many big changes come through in a very short amount of time. For many spiritually-sensitive, empathic light-workers, this has been intense. Empaths are closely dialed into the energy of the world. We are sensitive to emotions, spiritual energy, and the overall state of the world around us. This sensitivity, however, is a gift, not a curse!

According to the Angels, empathic consciousness is the exact medicine the world needs most. Empathy is the driving force of the evolution of our spiritual consciousness towards more fully realized unity. I have been guided by the Angels to help and support Empaths and Sensitives now more than ever. So, I decided to tune into the Angels for a message on how we can support and balance our empathic sensitivity. Here is the message I received:

Channeled Angel messages:

Breathe deeply and feel the rhythm of your heart and soul. Become the pure consciousness that you are in truth. Do you feel the magnificent spectrum of awareness that glitters through your being, beloved one? Your full-spectrum awareness is a divine gift.

We see and understand the sensitive souls who live in tension and heaviness at absorbing the painful feelings of the world. Allow us to dissolve this heaviness and free you from tension. Allow us to show you the depth of our love for you.

Breathe and feel the lightness of we Angels upon your spirit as we cleanse and uplift your sensitive awareness. Feel us dance and sing across your being as we relieve you of the fearful illusions of the world. We are with you always, offering to illuminate and empower your sensitivity with health, sweetness, and joyful wellbeing.

And so we offer you these guidelines to strengthen you: Illuminate your being with harmonious support at the levels of body, mind, and soul.

Care for Your Body:

Your physical sensory awareness, if not well cared for, can block the higher spiritual aspects of your consciousness from coming into full view. When the body is not supported with healthful harmony, its cries of need will speak loudest in your awareness, making all other sensory input a challenge to process.

But when you take care of your physical needs, and support your body as the miraculous being it is, you part the clouds and cleanse the window panes of consciousness to allow the light of the spirit to shine through as clear as can be.

Care for your Mind:

Your mind is a magnificent, finely tuned instrument of creation and divinity. Do not underestimate its power. That which you place within your mind becomes highly creative, sifting out into the world to give birth to your dreams.

Feed, nurture, and fully explore your mind. You have the power to explore and create with it so much more than you know! Hone and discipline your focus. Choose to hold mentality that honors and creates in the way of love.

Care for your Soul:

Your soul is a divine miracle that longs to sing through all that you are. This is the part of you that is forever one with us; harmoniously aligned with the divinity of all creation. It knows and embodies the Divine Truth.

Give your precious soul—the truth of who you are—the chance to dance and sing. Give your attention and trust to your soul, and allow it to create miracles unending throughout all that you witness in life. This is your birth-right. This is the gift that has been given to you—that which can never be un-given.

We Angels are here to remind you that your heart always beats in the rhythm of the creator’s Divine Love. Though hardship may be present in the Earthly realm, you are never separate from the Truth. You are always one with the ultimate reality of infinite love, wellbeing, peace, wholeness, and grace that reigns infinitely.

Some Final Thoughts…

The Angels have so much to teach us about tapping into the full spectrum of our miraculous, spiritual consciousness. Empaths, Sensitives, and Light-Workers, you have been graced with a natural awareness of that full-spectrum beauty. And the Angels want you to know that you have the power to awaken it further.

That miraculous potential inside of you is exactly the reason I have been called by the Angels to guide empowerment for spiritually-sensitive human beings. And again, the Angels have so much to share with us on that journey of cultivating empowered, full-spectrum spiritual awareness.

When Soul Mates Collide

Your soul mates are your life’s greatest teachers. And yes, we all have more than one. A soul mate can be a parent, sibling, child, friend, lover, or anyone else with whom you hold a strong spiritual agreement to help each other learn and grow.

Soul mates are not only those with whom you feel positively connected, but also the people who challenge you the most. They are often the souls who hold up a mirror to the parts of yourself you would rather not see. They push you to know yourself better and transform to match your innermost ideals, whether that process is comfortable or not.

Your soul mate relationships are where some of your most focused and meaningful spiritual growth occurs. And so, I tuned into the Angels for messages on this vital part of our life’s journey:

Channeled Angel Messages:

Love is the force that binds you together with all seven billion of your human brothers and sisters. Love is pure intelligence. When love draws two souls together, it is the divine creator’s sentience, embodying the perfect harmony of the universe, in action. Love is as infallible, natural, and in perfectly harmony as the forces that make the green grass grow, the seasons change, and the sun rise.

When love’s intelligence draws you towards another soul, it is enacting the perfect symmetry of the universe. Its chemistries inspire you to discover, create, and transform, and always with the same purpose: to guide you to make love’s existence fruitful and abundant— to multiply and expand the power and reach of love in every corner of your being, and upon the Earth.

And so, we invite you to approach each of your relationships with love. Even when pain, confusion, doubt, betrayal, or other imperfections arise, your highest purpose is to face them with love. Within each challenge that arises, simply continue to ask yourself: “How may I serve the expansion of love?”

We Angels are your loving champions and protectors. We are ever guiding you into greater, and greater, expressions of love, love, love. Call upon us and allow our guidance to help you weave love into every soul-mate encounter that life’s magnificent journey offers you.

My Reflections:

In working with the Angels over the years, they have taught me that choosing love creates a protective force. To choose love in a soul mate relationship is to choose health, wellbeing, and the protection of all that is good. In a functional soul mate relationship that is meant to last and provide partnership in your life, your soul mate will be aligned with you in choosing love.

And even in relationships in which your soul mate does not choose love, you still have the power to achieve new footholds for love in your life as a direct result. Even when you must walk away from another person’s life in order to champion real love, you’re taking a stand for the sacred, healthy values by which you wish to live. That not only gives you the opportunity to teach others by example, but also anchors the power of love in your life with greater strength than ever before.

Real love is worth working for, changing for, and healing for, and all of your soul mates are contributing to your awakening to accomplish just that. 

Love and Non-Attachment

Over the years of my spiritual journey with the Angels, they have repeatedly guided me into the practice of non-attachment. According to the Angels, non-attachment is one of our most empowering tools in raising consciousness towards their level of union with the divine.

Each time I have found myself facing a challenge, I have felt the Angels gentle, guiding hands upon my shoulders, reminding me to let go, breathe deeply, and allow the presence of God to flow freely in my heart. Though life’s challenges are not easy for any of us, non-attachment allows us the means to see clearly, and navigate through them with peace.

Through the Angels’ guidance, I have learned that non-attachment is a means of liberation from the ego’s limiting influence. It is a practice that sets us free from suffering, and lifts us into greater awareness of love’s constantly shining truth.

But what about Love? From our human perspective, is it not true that love is synonymous with attachment? “To Love is to let go,” the Angels whispered as I pondered the thought.

Channeled Angel Messages:

“It can only be the ego that seeks to possess. But the spirit? The spirit can only love. It is fear that leads the ego to grasp, hold, and keep. For this level of consciousness is not yet aware of the truth that it is not possible to either possess or lose anything. The truth that the highest self holds in firm and steady awareness is that all is one with you. It is in letting go that you surrender into deep harmonious union with the beloved.

We would guide you to look upon the sign-posts of ego—desires, worries, and fears—with kindness and compassion. For it is your love that will soften the hold of attachment, and generate the spaciousness of peaceful allowing in your consciousness.

When the ego “loves” with attachment, both divine love and fear-based attachment are present. Become aware of the attachment. With compassionate courage, allow yourself to see the fear beneath it. Look kindly and gently upon this fear, and then watch as its forms melt unto vanishing.

Beneath attachment, like a deep underground table of pure water, divine love is always present within you. It flows steady, true, and infinitely patient for your arrival. Draw down deep into its life-giving sweetness. Here we shall meet you, beloved humble warriors, and celebrate in joyful gratitude for your return.”

“The Spirit Loves,” I repeated to myself. “And to Love is to let go.”

I believe that Love lets go and allows all things to flow and to be without possession because Love sees all with trust. To trust is to surrender completely. It is to give yourself to the divine just as completely as it forever gives itself to you. Such a sweet, whole, and complete surrender can only create a merging the likes of which must make miracles. This is the kind of trust I wish upon the world. Would you pray for that trust and Love with me?

A Dark Night of the Soul

With no other Light than the one that burns in your Heart…

There are rare occurrences throughout the human story that unite our focus and spiritual growth so powerfully as a challenge like this one.

The Covid-19 pandemic has presented the global human family with what we might call a “dark night of the soul”. A dark night of the soul is a dissolution of illusions. It is a time in which we are challenged to clear our attachments to that which is not in alignment with our divine truth so that we may unite in a higher calling.

Healing, unification, compassion, and love for all: these are now and always our highest calling. And in this time of pandemic, the intelligent forces of our soul-based unity are challenging us to uplift these values among our priorities; breaking down the things in our lives that do not support them.

No matter what is going in your life, you have the power to answer that call. The simple act of holding faith through these changes dissolves the sway of fear and uncertainty. Your hope lends strength to those who are pouring their energy into healing this virus. Your love is lighting the way into a better and more compassionate tomorrow.

When a dark night of the human soul descends upon our world, miracles occur. For in such times, there often remains “no other light than the one that burns in your heart”. According to the Angels, the light in your heart is God itself—the light of the ultimate truth—the force through which all things are created.

Go within and breathe your focus into your inner light. What does it illuminate for you? What creative energy might it pour into this world? You are an instrument of healing light and truth now and always, beloved friend. The divine enfolds and beckons you in literally every moment of your existence.

In these times of powerful change, I have found light in the poetry of Saint Juan de la Cruz. I invite you to absorb and contemplate these beautiful, comforting words. And perhaps, in this time in which there may be “no other light than the one that burns in your heart”, you too will be reunited with “sheer grace”—with the presence of the divine “beloved”. Allow, if you will, this poem become your prayer; your reminder that literally all paths lead back to divine love:

 

One dark night,

fired with love’s urgent longings

— ah, the sheer grace! —

I went out unseen,

my house being now all stilled.

In darkness, and secure,

by the secret ladder, disguised,

— ah, the sheer grace! —

in darkness and concealment,

my house being now all stilled.

On that glad night,

in secret, for no one saw me,

nor did I look at anything,

with no other light or guide

than the one that burned in my heart.

This guided me

more surely than the light of noon

to where he was awaiting me

— him I knew so well —

there in a place where no one appeared.

O guiding night!

O night more lovely than the dawn!

O night that has united

the Lover with his beloved,

transforming the beloved in her Lover.

Upon my flowering breast

which I kept wholly for him alone,

there he lay sleeping,

and I caressing him

there in a breeze from the fanning cedars.

When the breeze blew from the turret,

as I parted his hair,

it wounded my neck

with its gentle hand,

suspending all my senses.

I abandoned and forgot myself,

laying my face on my Beloved;

all things ceased; I went out from myself,

leaving my cares

forgotten among the lilies.

 

– Juan de la Cruz, 1577
