Today I reread this commentary message from Inspiration of the Week which I wrote several years ago. I felt inspired yet again, so I decided to share it on this Blog. This message expands how I view the world in lovely, deep and touching ways.
Walk in Beauty, Live in Trust and Know
the Benevolent Love of God Guides Your Way.
It has been a long road stretching from the time I first received this message from Archangel Gabriel in 1995 to making this message into my way of life.
I was flying from Hawaii to teach my first class in another state and was nervous about the prospect ahead of me. At that time, and even now in certain situations, it is difficult to admit in public that I have been listening to an Archangel speak to me. When I asked what it was I needed to remember most about the upcoming journey, I received this message. It remains one of my favorites to this day.
When I remember to walk in Beauty, it means to honor the gifts of this amazing Earth and see that Beauty is everywhere I look. It is all in the perspective of the eyes with which I see the world. When I walk in Beauty, I feel blessed and radiate this beautiful blessing all around me. This raises my vibrational frequency enough so that I attract even more Beauty into my life.
Beauty is one of those words that has gained power since we have moved into the 4th and 5th dimensions after 2012. Just asking to see Beauty is a powerful prayer. When I create Beauty in my immediate surroundings, it never fails to uplift me. I can do this by the simple act of bringing one flower into my home. We need Beauty in our lives to feel more whole, and it helps us to live in Well-being as we learn to shift in these new frequencies.
Living in Trust has been more of a challenge for me. Sometimes it means that I need to stay neutral in the face of what appears to be happening in front of my eyes and rely on the truth of my heart. The appearance of disharmony is not the true reality when the Infinite Intelligence is involved, and since this divine aspect is always a part of everything, we can trust that what we see is only an appearance.
Living in Trust also means that I need to love and trust myself more and remember that I am not alone, that I am guided and inspired in every moment. There are times when I need to ask for proof of this fact. I have asked for signs when I really needed to know that I was being guided and that my small self was not making the plans. That has created amazing results.
At a pivotal time in my life in 1999, I felt that I was being guided to take some radical steps. I had prayed very deeply and felt as though I received clear instructions that even included the date. Before implementing this plan, I asked for a sign to make sure that it was coming from a pure place of Wisdom, and not my mind. To my amazement, in less than a minute I was covered in butterflies. Hundreds of beautiful winged beings were landing on me, wandering over my arms, chest and head. I was stunned and stood in awe at the power of Beauty in that moment. Shortly, they were gone, with no evidence that they had even been there.
Would you have trusted that a flock of butterflies was enough evidence to be sure of your decision? I wanted to do that, I really did, but still that little voice in me doubted. I told the Universe, “That was really good, but I just need one more sign to make sure.” In Its infinite compassion, the blessings of the Divine continued, because in that moment a yellow butterfly and two blue butterflies landed in a little puddle right at my feet. I have never seen a blue butterfly before or since that time, but there were two amazing blue ones and a pretty yellow butterfly right at my feet where I would take the first step into new life. I had to surrender.
Living in Trust in that situation was not easy, nor was the outcome of that decision. Now more than 20 years later I can remember the importance of asking for a sign, and see how perfect it was for me to follow that guidance, no matter how difficult it was to do. The happiness in my life now more than makes up for the upheaval that decision created at the time.
We are given beautiful messages from the Divine to change the way we perceive our lives and the world. Often they seem so simple, even simplistic and hard to believe. Only the test of time has made it possible for me to know that when I trust in myself and the Angelic energy working through me, miracles are commonplace and life takes on a Beauty that keeps me inspired with a sense of wonder.
When this happens, there is no doubt anywhere in my being that the benevolent love of God guides my way. I feel the presence of Angels and know that I am truly cared for in every moment.
You too have this Grace in your life.
With every breath I take, may I remember that I AM a beloved child of the benevolent and creative Source of All That Is. Help me to know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I AM blessed and loved beyond my capacity to understand.
May all humanity trust in the beautiful, unfolding process of Life. May we know that all our needs are met with Grace and Ease, and we are truly cared for eternally.
May Beauty and Trust bless the heart of all beings in the world. And so it is.
