My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Celebrate! You are growing! There is fantastically powerful energy on the earth right now. Tap in, tune in, and focus on that which you love. Better yet strive to focus on love no matter what the situation you find yourself in.
Think of the most difficult person in your life. What can you love about them? Maybe you can love the fact that they have taught you to embrace greater boundaries, or learn new levels of discernment. Maybe they have inadvertently taught you to listen to yourself more kindly rather than blindly listening to others, or to trust yourself and your own feelings rather than blindly trusting others. Maybe they have caused you to reach deep inside and find new levels of patience, tolerance, and compassion - whether for them or for yourself. No matter how "awful" you feel this person is, you can find something to love there if you truly try. You can, if you choose, imagine the spark of Divine light within them, no matter how small and hidden, and acknowledge that they come from the very same source that you do.
If you are in a situation you don't like, ask yourself, how can I love it... if not like it? Suppose you are having trouble paying the bills. You can thank God for giving you an opportunity to increase your faith in miracles and the goodness of others. Suppose you have a health challenge. You can thank God for the miraculous healing in progress and your willingness to grow beyond the root causes. Suppose you want a new job but have no clue how to find one. You can thank God for putting desire in your for more and give praise in advance for the new job that is coming. In all cases, you can bring more love to the surface. In doing so, you transform, not only your heart but your life.
Dear ones we love you! We see love everywhere we look. We see the tough situations as temporary, the difficult souls as those who simply forgot. We know that in all cases, in all being, and in all things, there is love trying to surface. This is why we live in love! You can too. All it takes is practice.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Totally embarrassing. I did it again. I let a nasty energy surprise me, freak me out, and twisted my intestines late last week. Not fun for a spiritual teacher to admit she hasn't quite learned a lesson. Nonetheless, although it would have been easier to whine and feel sorry for myself, as painful, and un-fun as the situation was, I did as the angels preach, and asked myself, "OK, what did I learn? Where is the love?"
For starters I'm learning to swim in some really big energies that require me to listen to my guidance, body, mind, and heart impeccably. I was guided not to open up the website of a person who has been very unkind to me in the past. I clearly heard the guidance strongly right before I did, "Don't go there," Yet driven by curiosity, I didn't listen. A powerfully negative force came at me in such a startling way that it affected my entire body. I woke up the next morning looking like a walrus and in deep pain. I've been there before, and I know how to heal. Dear souls came forth to pray and offer assistance, but I took most of the time in silence to look at myself and to really dig into the areas in my life where I was still letting old patterns that don't work,hurt me or hold me back.
About four days into this adventure, while still in pain, and hadn't eaten or slept much, etc., something guided me to go outdoors. By this time I was listening to every little nuance of guidance! "This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad!" I heard the angels singing the quote in my head that I knew so well from my childhood. I felt it to the core of my being. Yes, it was a beautiful spring day. Yes I was in pain but so what! Look at those roses blooming! Look at the primrose. Listen to the birds. Feel the cool wet grass even as I waddled around. The sun was warm. The breeze cool. Let us rejoice and be glad indeed! I was alive! Suddenly Love flooded me. I felt joyous in spite of the discomfort and knew healing was on the way. Love does cure all.
So by all means, when things get tough, give yourself time for a human reaction, then as soon as you are ready, willing, and able, find the love. It colors your life with grace.
Love you all! Have a blessed week.
