A Divine Opportunity!

What is love? There are many schools of thought and I must say, being based in perception, ‘love' is highly misunderstood.

What is love? There are many schools of thought and I must say, being based in perception, ‘love’ is highly misunderstood.

Love is an experience. It’s an energy utilized for the highest good. It has nothing to do with a person, place or thing; it’s a feeling, a gift of light, and when we allow it to consume us, it raises our vibration and enhance our lives. On the other hand, if we permit our observations and judgments to overshadow the love we feel for someone else, or ourselves for that matter, we’re no longer fully experiencing love.

Allowing love is challenging. Love is not. Love shows up and inspires us and often times, as soon as something happens we deem unacceptable or less than favourable, we stop dead in our tracks and dismiss the person, place or thing. However, for the courageous, love is something they cling too because they’ve felt the fire and caught a glimpse of the possibilities.

Unfortunately, many people believe love is difficult and jump from person to person and circumstance to circumstance because it’s easier to start anew rather than explore the depths of their being. You see, that is what love does. It opens the heart and doors to our core. It causes us to face the shadows in order to embrace the light; yet, so many people are afraid to really look at the dark and will write it off as being the wrong person, place or thing.

I’m here to tell you, there is no such thing as right or wrong; we are simply introduced to experiences that offer beautifully complex opportunities to embrace ourselves in our entirety.

Society tells us there is someone for everyone; that each one of us has a soul mate and so on. What if this was someone’s way of justifying their own pursuit of love? What if anyone is that person, we’re just consumers of the belief that there is only one and choose to pursue that perfect person; yet, when perfection is NEVER found, we adopt the philosophy we’re destined to ‘do’ life alone and settle until we can’t take ‘it’ any longer or that person does show up.

It’s no wonder so many people walk around feeling lost and confused. The perfection, as we define it, doesn’t lie in a person, place or thing, it lies in the opportunity to allow love to surround and support us; to break us down and reveal the things we’ve been avoiding and embrace them as a part of us with someone else watching and showering us with the trust, patience and compassion.

The biggest problem I see is when one or both people are sold on the concept of finding the right one and feeling discouraged when breakdowns occur.

Breakdowns are opportunities to shift, grow, nurture and persevere! It’s what inspires all forms of art, and the reason I’m writing this article. I’m committed to and believe in the power of love. Is it beautiful and perfect? That depends on your definition and whether or not you’re willing to expand your thinking to embrace the beauty of the shadow and see the perfection in the imperfections.

Love is God’s gift to each of us. It’s a Divine flash light, of sorts, to explore the depths of our individual Universe’s. To reject or resist love is to reject or resist the Divine. To turn away from the light is to buy into one more context: stay away from the light … sound familiar? Oddly enough, we’re actually pursuing the light in our soul, so why on earth do we shy away from the light of another?

We are light beings, and allowing the light of another to fuel our fire is God’s greatest gift to be all that we can be. Our shadows are weaknesses that are complimented by the love and strength of another, not something to run from or hide. Allowing another to see this side of us and be the strength we deserve is the greatest sign of gratitude we can give to our self, the other person and most importantly the One ~ the Divine!

Blessings Come in Many Forms

Blessings come in many forms. It is up to you to accept or deny them.

Blessings Come in Many Forms

Blessings come in many forms. It is up to you to accept or deny them. They can come from the animals around you, from your family, or any of an assortment of angels on earth or in spirit. When I share things from the side of the Great Spirit with you, my intent is to have each of you feel invigorated and loved.

Regardless of how you carry yourself through life, those of us on the other side will usher love and protection to you. Of course, if you opt to live life in the way of spiritual principles, you make our job much easier. If you choose to do it in ways that are less magnificent, do not worry. We will still love you, but we will forever try to reform your thinking.

When I lived on the earth plane, I had a lifetime filled with deprivation. Some of you may feel lost without one of your gadgets, but we sacrificed warmth in the winter, and sometimes many of us went hungry for days. Our blend of humanity was to keep huddled together. This closeness might be unbearable for some of you. For us, it was a way of survival. It helped the family to bond. Being somewhat rebellious, I would suggest it to the fair ones that I had interest in. That attempt to bond was never received too well by their fathers and guardians.

My point is that too many people have become lost when it comes to feeling the Great Spirit’s love through the huddled masses. Instead, some have attitudes that suggest a dislike and an embracing of muddled masses. Life does not need to be complicated. It needs to be appreciated.

It is your responsibility to share your love and shed your light on others. It is not to extinguish happiness and shed responsibility. Lessons for your soul come in numerous ways but they can generally be more uplifting when you embrace the efforts of love and simplicity. Start by loving yourself, and then spiral it outward.

The reason I chose this topic is to get all of you to understand that as you march forward you will undoubtedly have to deal with different obstacles. Each one is not meant to deter you from enjoying life. Many of the challenges you face actually make your soul grow in great strength.

There is a healing that has taken place tonight. It was my responsibility to lift much of the negativity within your bodies so that your pains would be removed and your fears would be depleted. Your minds, your thoughts, your attitudes and ultimately your actions are what will lead you to the path of roses.

I have used that flower for a couple of reasons. It is symbolic of love and friendship. It is also something that almost every person sees as a thing of beauty. It protects itself through thorny and spiny ways. It does this because no matter how delicate it is it will seem like it is vulnerable to attack.

Some of you have had to endure more than others. For those who have not lost hope, and who have instead gained desire, I want to thank you. The reason I am thanking you is because if I show my gratitude to your efforts, you will continue to work hard on trying to lift yourself to an even better place.

The lifetime I spoke of was full of drought and flood. It was full of illnesses, both in the water and airborne. It decimated most of my family, and most of my friends passed into spirit well before their time. Society today generally has enough safety checks so that you will never have to endure that. It is part of the process of life. The more people evolve and the more they share their intelligence, the easier it becomes to add on to it. Items that may have been horrific centuries ago have no power.

Having no power for a person is a helpless and daunting feeling. All of you have a strength that goes much deeper into your hearts and souls then you might realize. I mentioned previously that you should seek out or be part of the angels on earth, as well as in spirit. That is because some of you who follow and abide by a path of spirituality often overlook the gifts given by those in spirit to you in the form of fellow beings.

If you study the people that you hang out with, that you surround yourself with, then you will find that your vibration matches theirs. If you decide that you are struggling too much, it is frequently because those around you are also in the same situation. I am not telling you to depart from all of your friends; I am telling you to add to them. It is your right and destiny to be part and parcel of those who can encourage you and can lift you up.

These are The Spoken Words of Spirit.
