You have unlimited ability to connect to the other side. To call in all the angelic souls who are gathered in your support, and find your way back to joy – no matter what is going on in your life.
I am writing this in the aftermath of a school shooting that left twenty children dead between the ages of five and ten. A shooting that opened every heart in North America and many around the world as we all remember, yet again, that we are love.
We are torn asunder by this event … we wonder how such an unspeakable thing can happen in a good and loving Universe. And we feel our mortality and our helplessness powerfully. Yet, contained within this event are the critical seeds that can lead us powerfully back to ourselves – and most of all, to each other.
Because nothing in this mortal coil happens without purpose. And the purpose, first and foremost, is always to help you know that God is alive within you.
The way back to God is to remember love. This is true whether you are a politician arguing the laws around gun control, or just another person feeling helpless, confused, grief-stricken and lost in our uneasy world.
Dear friend, you have the ability to give and receive love far beyond your wildest dreams – but only if you choose it. For it is a big responsibility to share such love …
First, you must let go of your ego’s striving for one-upsmanship, for control, grasping and the needy subterfuge of defense and hiding. You have to release the desire for drama and conflict, and let life pass by you, unimpeded.
And then you have to take that gorgeous state of emptiness and ask for God to fill it with correct purpose. Make time and space to receive that purpose, and then open up to take right action.
Mind you, this process is a work in progress … we are not expected to flip a switch and suddenly turn off our too-busy minds. Instead, it is the work of a lifetime and it happens gradually, as we expand bit by bit.
For the more you open, the more you receive.
This information from the other side comes in dreams, images, journaling and sudden hits of inspiration. It can happen in the shower, while driving, exercising or speaking to another – or simply when you least expect it. It is a warm, glowing ‘knowing’ – a transcendent state of bliss that leads us again and again our deepest love.
This divine abundance is simply waiting for you to slow down enough to receive it. Certain activities help.
Journaling and meditation lead the list. Regularly focusing on a flame, a photograph or mandala, or perhaps an image from nature can help still the mind back to emptiness. Even walking in a meditative way can help as well. And playing certain soothing music that has a vibration conducive to the mind-state you wish to create is always wonderful.
There is nothing to ‘do’ here, dear one … but rather a place to be. For in that place of love, looseness and non-attachment you can receive the healing energy that is abundant and present.
And then you can turn right around and share it with others.
That is where the bliss is, right here on earth. Go ahead and ask for that special angelic presence you identify with – such as your deceased loved ones, or possibly Archangels such as Michael and Metatron – to come pouring through you.
Those who are now disembodied, like my daughter Teal, who died in August, can be everywhere at once. There are no time-space restrictions in the afterlife. Our spirit guides can even morph into energetic force fields that wrap around the earth if necessary. But they will not mobilize unless you, or we as a nation, call them forth.
For that openness and willingness is what is needed most of all.
Be mindful that there is no ‘testing’ this concept. You are either in or out in terms of your belief and your ability to receive. It is a little like being a radio. You cannot tune in a clear channel if there is static in your airwaves, such as an inquiring mind want ‘proof’ before the ego finally lets go.
So here’s the Catch-22: there is no proof, friend. None beyond the extraordinary joy that pours through your body like melted honey when you connect. Which is all it takes for the transmission to take place.
And so … to experience this divine power on a conscious level, you must suspend the need to know there is divine power available at all. It’s a perfect design in that our ego must finally step aside for a little while we get to know God.
The big question is this – not can you connect. Rather, it’s this: Are you willing to connect? To let go and surrender enough to know you can receive true joy – and that you are worthy of such?
To do so is to allow the peace that passes all understanding to flood your consciousness. And so to return to a simpler, less complicated way of being that makes the world just a little more loving.
This is one of the lessons provided by the twenty children who died in the Sandy Hook School this week …
Can we hold deeper compassion for ourselves, for each other and for the world at large?
Can we believe that we matter enough to change the world … even just a little … with our own healing power of love?
Can we finally let go and ask for divine help in getting through this narrow passage in time? This place of both excruciating pain and unlimited transcendence?
Can we embody love here and now? And what can we do to share that love with another right now?
I let go and and fall into this bliss as I write this.
