As the buds burst forth, the flowers bloom, and plants begin to reach for the light, so too many of you are feeling the urge to reach for the light as well. Do you have something you feel passionate about? If so dear ones, it is time to start incorporating your passions into your life. If you like to create art, make time. If you like to be around children, make time. If you like to cook wonderful food, collect nostalgic items, feed the poor, feed your family, build things, read about history, you name it, then it is time to get going!
As you release yourself from the expectations of your past, you will find that you allow room in your life for the magic and miracles that can only be created by God. When you surrender to your own heart, allow yourself to flow according to your natural rhythms, and give up your expectations of perfection, you start to realize that you are perfect already. Life is perfect as it is. Others are perfectly where they should be to support the growth their soul needs at this time.
You have a little saying on your earth that we will paraphrase, "Don't let the lost, angry, hurting souls get you down." It is important, dear ones, to remember that keeping those in misery company does not serve them. Far better to stay in your light and keep them company if they wish, than to step into their darkness. In this way you become the light, the love, the hope, and the inspiration for those in need.
In this year of 2012, more than ever before it is important to live your life from the inside out. As human beings you have been taught to handle the external affairs of your life first, and yet we would urge you each day, to sit and handle your internal state of affairs. Are you at peace? If not spend time in prayer, contemplation, or sitting on a patio and listening to the birds singing. Exercise, take a little walk, or breathe deeply. Peace is available at all times, whether your circumstances are peaceful or not.
As you move forward in an ever changing world, dear ones, remember that God lives and breathes life and love within each one of you. Here in the heavens we cannot imagine favoring one soul over another, giving one more power than another, or saying any one of you is better or worse than another. In our eyes, and in God's eyes you are all equal.You are all powerful creators.
In this season of celebrating the light coming into a darkened world, remember, you too are that light. You are truth, inspiration, and God's angels upon the earth. It is your kind smile that can turn the entire course of a stranger's day, or perhaps even their lives. It is your willingness to turn away from the unkindness of others, rather than feed it, that is a gift and a blessing to all involved. It is your willingness to acknowledge yourself as part of God's great love that allows you to shine that light into he world.
In this season of love and light, we know that there are many of you who also experience the holidays as a season of loss, loneliness, or lack. Anytime there are such massive expectations of how life "should" look, these will, by their very nature, highlight the contrasts.
