You will sometimes meet someone you believe is a soul mate; you feel the connection on many levels, perhaps instantly. And as you get to know each other more, you begin to feel the connection deepen and you feel that you must have an arrangement with this person that predated this lifetime.
Do not assume, however, that this soul connection necessarily means that you are meant to be happily together for this lifetime. It may be that you are meant to be friends and allies, helping each other out. It may be that you are going to help each other in ways that even involve conflict and separation, but with an end result that is beneficial to you. It may be that you are going to learn some lesson from each other and then go your separate ways.
This morning we have a message from a power animal that I know well. I first met him years ago when I was doing power animal retrievals, then again more recently in my Power Animal Adventures. He is an enormous sperm whale known as The Ancient One; it is always so wonderful to hear from him. And is now our way, Quado has added a few words at the end of his message.
In the end, what you have is yourself, who you are in your core, the truth and integrity that are you. In the end, this is what you have.
Your success in the outside world can depend so heavily on the opinions and actions of others that you can become confused, believing that you make terrible mistakes, wondering if others like or respect you, wondering what you did wrong, in a state of perpetual worry that you are somehow not enough. And when this happens and all you feel is some distorted reflection of what you think others want from you, of what you think they expect from you in order for you to succeed, then you can lose your way and become nothing but a bundle of nerves.
This is the year of forgiveness. And the primary person you are to forgive is yourself.
This is the year of celebrating small victories. Every little thing that you achieve, every step you take in the right direction is to be celebrated and respected.
This is the year of little steps that add up to a giant leap. This is the year of little victories that add up to a magnificent battle won. This is the year of little achievements that add up to a lifting yourself up an entire level.
Today, we continue our Course in Creation. As we discussed last week, you should be continuing to work the early lessons, creating your own space in life, setting up your spiritual disciplines and following them through, gaining control over your mind through meditation and beginning to create a positive, fulfilling and joyous life. And what we will be doing now for some time is addressing individual topics that are issues for many people as they walk their path of spiritual transformation and evolution.
And today’s topic is money, a difficult and confusing issue for many.
Today would be such an excellent day for cleaning out the cobwebs of your mind, all of those old thoughts and opinions hiding in the corners that need to be brought out into the light of day and exposed for what they are: stale, dusty, and no longer of use.
