My dear friends, we love you so very much.
Understand you are never at the mercy of the world around you. You are certainly affected by others, moved around by circumstances at times, sometimes even dragged down into the vibrations around you and yet, dear ones, you - the soul - have say over how you will handle each and every circumstance in your life. You always have the choice to see the glass half full or the glass half empty - to focus on adversity, or to focus on opportunity.
For example 'recession' does not equal 'depression' and yet so many humans equate the two! While some individuals fall into despair over 'the economy' others see opportunity - for change, for investment, for down time to consider new directions in life. Winning the lottery does not necessarily equal bliss. Some of you would be overjoyed, use discernment in managing your finances, pursue your dreams, and share with those you care about. Others would bemoan the fact that they are now harassed by people and organizations 'wanting a piece' of their fortune, would moan about managing such difficult sums of money, and would spend their days fending off the 'vultures.'
Everything - every single person and situation that comes into your life can be viewed as a blessing and an opportunity for learning more about love, or a curse. Without question you will lead happier lives if you can find the opportunities and the blessings in all situations.
Suppose you have been dumped or divorced by someone you cared about, or perhaps you gave up an opportunity that you now regret. What blessing can you find here? You now have time to think, to learn, to focus about what you want in the future or how you want to act given the next opportunity. You may be alone but you can use that time to strengthen your relationship with God, find new interests and activities, journal, relax, etc. Or you can focus upon beating yourself up, criticizing one another, and focusing upon how miserable you are. It is your choice.
Every person or situation presented you is presented with God's love. Every single one, no matter how difficult or challenging can be a gift to you, an opportunity, a chance to learn to love yourself or others more, to place more faith and trust in God, to allow yourself to surrender to a bigger picture that you may not yet be able to see. Every single opportunity or person presented can help and assist you in elevating your spirit to receive greater love from God - if you so choose. Likewise, every opportunity or person can be viewed as an obstacle, and dear ones, when you make a choice to see life in that fashion, our hearts break for you because we know that you are all seeking to learn more about love, and we see the opportunities for this in every moment of your lives.
Grace is there for you dear ones, not only in the heights, but also in the depths. "Seek and ye shall find. Knock and the door shall be opened." Look for the magic in life no matter what, and as you search out those tiny sparks and portals of light, the doorway to higher dimensions will open up and the heavens will flood into your hearts, minds, relationships, and life circumstances.
God bless you! We love you so very much.
