Inspiration for the Week - Accept What Is

The Gabriel Message card for this week:

Accept what is and allow change to occur around you without attachment.

I remember receiving this message and especially the difficulties I experienced with the concept, "accept what is."

How could I even consider accepting the horrendous and traumatic occurrences I saw or read on the news? How could I accept what appeared in my life as the loss of all that I considered valuable?

It is a challenging concept, especially in this era of instant world-wide information with more awareness about what is transpiring not only in the lives of others, but in the life of the Earth and its sustainability. Yet what I have learned is that nothing can change unless I accept "what is." I have to be very clear about what it is that I am experiencing so I can ask for something different. Often I need to recognize the recurring patterns so I can clear something from my past history, in this and other lifetimes. I am really aware that when I accept what is in my present time, I can address what I need because the contrast is so great between what I am experiencing and what I want to have in my life.

We come into the world as beings who want to experience and learn from the life we have chosen. We expressly volunteered to come into this time and place so we could help bring the changes the Earth needs to thrive in the New Life Awakening now. This includes our soul's lessons and the empowered teachings we need in order to bring our own lives into a higher order.

When I do a private session, I always begin with prayer to set the energy and invite guidance. Then I ask my guidance to give me clarity about the person I am working with; usually something like, "Where are you now and what do you need to know?" These questions open doorways into the unconscious mind and the soul's requirements for a next step in life. The discussion that ensues from that question is always enlightening and allows greater awareness to develop and be accessed.

The next key word is Allowing. We are becoming really alert to this word and its importance for living the happy life we want to live. There are so many things we do that get in our own way as we journey through life. The practice of Allowing demonstrates trust that we live in a benevolent universe and have a powerful built-in support system. It encourages us to step back from forward movement into our inner center of balance so we can receive all the love and support we need. Even though it feels insignificant, this activity is an amazing action step and is a requirement for greater Well-being.

In my classes we have been working with Light Field Technology for years, a system that works with Divine Light and emphasizes the higher frequencies contained in certain words since 2012. We can literally create a field of Divine Light within and around ourselves when we focus on these words and allow their frequency to work within our beings. We found that are three incredibly life-transforming words that all start with the letter A. They are Allowing, Acceptance and Alignment.

Alignment with Source energy is the beginning point for every change you want to make in your life and for the creation of health and happiness. For almost every question I bring up, Alignment, Acceptance and Allowing has been the answer. When I take those steps within my life, I experience a new level of ease and effortless momentum. A friend that I hike with regularly started calling this awareness the ABC's of Quantum Living, which is a very fun yet powerful tool we will be working with in the next class. This series was inspired by the Archangels after opening the Stargate of the Heart on Solstice. The first teleclass begins September 4.

So when you look at all the changes you would like to make in your life, remember to apply the A's to simplify that manifestation. Acceptance, Allowing and above all, vertical Alignment with your Source energy, are the keys. Truth is really simple, but it does take conscious awareness to apply. That is another reason it is called a Spiritual Practice.

The Gabriel Messages #43

Accept what is and allow change to occur around you without attachment.

Dear One,

When we suggest for you to accept what is, we mean to be lovingly aware of all situations occurring in and around you — both personally and globally. This means to accept the appearance of what is occurring, without judgment. There is a greater truth underlying all things, no matter how it appears. When you accept a situation as it is, it allows you to release any attachment to having it be different. It is this attachment that can cause you pain.

Just as a child grows and blossoms when in an atmosphere of acceptance and love, so does our world become more expansive and creative when we bring to it this energy of acceptance. When we try to force a child to do what we want, when we have great attachment to his or her behavior conforming to our idea of what is appropriate, the child's energy is restricted. There is no freedom to express the expansiveness of individual creativity.

This also happens to the adult. When there is too much judgment about behaviors and actions in the world, there can be no free-flowing expression of the creativity and love inherent within each person. This does not mean to be tolerant of behavior that is destructive. It means to be aware of the way things appear, to remember the greater truth, to ask for the qualities we would prefer to have manifest, and then to release our attachment. This allows God and the Angels to begin to work in and through all things.

When you release a person or a situation to Spirit, you allow them to be in the Divine Flow taking them to their highest good. Know that even though you have prayed for the greater good, you do not know precisely what this will look like. This is where faith comes in. No matter how something appears, if you have prayed, that prayer is being answered. It does not assist things for you to be attached to the outcome. Know that Infinite Intelligence is working, creating change in the direction of balance and harmony. If there is more that you can do, trust that you will be guided to know this through your intuition.

Acceptance and allowance are two of the greatest powers available to you. These two energies free you to live in the expansiveness that is your divine birthright. When you have an expanded perspective about life, there is greater freedom to express the dynamic, creative qualities inherent within you. There is greater love, for yourself and for all others. You also will feel connected to your Higher Self, which brings about great joy. It is as the Master Jesus said, "Know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

Remember your message from the Angels today:

Accept what is and allow change to occur around you without attachment.

"This allows God and the Angels to begin to work in and through all things"...Thank you for reminding me of this Shanta. Such an important and practical message--the fine point of which I so often struggle with. I am frequently torn between making a heart-based choice or a choice that is more acceptable to others (or sometimes even more acceptable to myself because it is perhaps less stressful for me). You helped me realize that by "Accepting what is" I don't really have to torture myself, I just Allow what Is to Be, Follow My Heart and The Way will be shown.

and the Angels to work their Magic and Miracles :) :) :)
