joy and love in the face of disaster

DSC_9058a

Like each of you, I am saddened by the many devastating things happening in the world right now.  Along with the world events, many are going through personal things that are challenging for them. I think it is safe to say that we are in a very intense time.

When I was out walking this morning, my guides reminded me that we are each responsible for the vibrations we generate in our bodies. So, we can be sad or fearful and acknowledge those feelings and then choose to general compassion or joy.  The Pleiadeans, as channeled through Nora Herold http://www.noraherold.com/, tell us when we have a feeling arise, we can look at that feeling, accept it for what it is and sent it love. This allows us to come to a neutral place. Then we can choose vibrate joy, for instance, and create from a whole new place. This is the challenge we are all facing now. Accepting what we are seeing before us, doesn’t mean we wouldn’t prefer something else, and then we can send it love. When we have come to a neutral place we then can vibrate in joy and love and create a new outcome.

My guides commented on joy and love:

Joy that is radiated with love is a powerful reminder that each of you is a channel for the Divine Light that you are. This love and joy is the love and joy that is not altered by external circumstances but helps rebuild the world. Never forget that you are Love manifesting a human body.

Thanks for sending love and joy to all those places in your life and in the world that can use it! Much love! Linda

Spring is happening all around the northern hemisphere and fall is happening in the southern hemisphere. These are seasons of change. When we enter a time of change we can make choices which directs our energies. I came across the following from my guides a few days ago and thought you would enjoy it!

All these months we have been teaching and discussing the way of the heart. It is a pathway of love, joy and expansion. We know that staying on the pathway does not always feel like love, joy and expansion.

So, we come again this day to whisper in your ears and to let you know that each of those states of being are by ones choosing. Each time you pick yourselves up and choose love, joy and/or expansion, you return to the path that you walk with renewed dedication. It is this dedication that builds a solid foundation for the individual and all humanity. For each has their own pathway and each of those pathways are co-joined with all paths. The stronger one path becomes the stronger they all become. This is how the Universe works.

You, each human, are part of the whole fabric of Divine Life. Each success and each apparent failure change that fabric but more important the choices made subsequent to the success or failure bring a greater change and a richness to the fabric.

This is where humanity is now. Choosing. Choosing how to step forward. Choosing love over fear and if you should choose fear, do so in full consciousness and recognize that you may make this your next step toward walking into love. Move out, one step at a time from the emotion that holds you in a place you choose not to be.

The first step is always recognizing where you are. This perhaps is the most difficult. You, humanity, has been there so long that it seems normal and a place that just is. When you recognize that you are in a place you would rather not be and choose to step into a new place, this is you awakening.

This is where humanity is. Slowly awakening to where they are and examining it. For many this place will be just fine and for many they will find that change is what they desire. Baby steps. When you find yourself desiring change, allow the change to come incrementally. Let the first step be to look for love, joy or expansion. Like hot coffee little sips until you become used to the energy that you are engaging.

Happy Choosing! Happy Spring! Much love, Linda

getting heart centered!

DSCN1103a

I wanted to remind you about being in your heart center. We talked about this earlier. Resting in your heart is the first step in engaging your heart-mind. There are many ways to get yourself seated in your heart. An easy one is taking an elevator from the center of your head to the center of your heart. Then allowing with your breath to sink deeply into your heart center. Imagine your breath moving in and out of your heart center for a minute or so. This will anchor you in your heart!

Dr. Peebles, channeled by Natalie Gianelli (http://nataliegianelli.com/) has a wonderful trick. He suggests that throughout the day, you touch your heart center. This is a gentle reminder of where you want to be. It brings you to your heart center in a conscious way. It always brings a smile to my face too!

My guides added these thoughts about your heart center:

Your heart center is your spiritual connection. You are in touch with all parts of yourself in this place and at the same time you are in touch with all that is.

Residing in your heart center affords the most flexible place for you to be. Your heart center offers you choices that would not arise from your ego-mind. The ego-mind offers choices based on safety and experience. The heart-mind offers choices based on love and expansiveness.

Thanks for being in your heart center! Much love, Linda

step into your heart

DSC_1342a

The other morning my guides continued the discussion about the heart-mind. The guides who are talking with us are a blending of a group consciousness called Helios and another who I call the Angelics. Here is what they had to say:

The benefits of engaging the heart-mind are not obvious when viewed from the ego-mind. However, when viewing your external world, you begin to see some of the benefits. Right now the ego-mind in many cases is making a stand for its survival. This is not the total contributing factor to all those things you find disturbing in your world but it does contribute its fair share. So, first step out of judgment. All parts of the human psyche fight for their lives when they feel challenged. We would suggest not to challenge the ego-mind rather to allow the heart-mind to gently begin to support the ego-mind by suggesting other possibilities.

This can be done by going inside and first observing your ego-mind and then in meditation or observation offering suggestions that arise from sinking into your heart center and listening. Give yourself time to practice. You may have success and you may have stumbling blocks. Stay with the process.

To clarify the process, the guides are talking about, first, observe a reaction arising from your ego-mind, then, allow your awareness to drop into your heart center and let a new response arise. Then rising back into your head and look at the possibilities your heart has presented. Practice this as a review of life events to start with, then begin to use it in “real time” when you feel comfortable.

The process can be done as a review while you rest before getting out of bed or before sleep in the evening. Let your heart center offer differing solutions for what might have arisen during the day. Then feel into the possible responses and allow your ego-mind to feel them as well. Notice the responses from your ego-mind.

Noticing how the ego-mind responds to the alternative actions will give you an understanding of how the two minds work. The next step will be to use the action of sinking into your heart center in daily life. Particularly, when the ego-mind wants to take charge.

It is important to be an impartial observer of your ego-mind. Your ego-mind is merely doing the job it was designed to do. Gentle love and caring is what will ease your way through this process.

Thanks for Stepping into your Heart-Mind! Much love, Linda

in the quiet

As a follow on to the longer piece my guides wrote:

In the quiet of your heart there is a place where you can rest. In this quiet place you will find peace in the stillness.

The peace you find is the promise of the Divine. The Divine who holds you always in love. The Divine who is a part of you and connects you to all life. Thanks for being in your heart! Much love, Linda

listen to your heart!

DSC_8695b

My guides have been talking to me for several years about the heart-mind. This is the mind we are moving into now. They suggested that it would be a good time to write something a little longer than my regular blog about the heart-mind. I will be doing this in installments. The blogs will be a combination of quotes (in italic writing) from the guides and my input (regular typing). We will talk about what I am calling the ego-mind which is what we have been using to navigate the world all our lives and the heart-mind which is what we have been engaging on occasion and seeing how it works in the world.

You are familiar with life lived through the ego-mind. You are being asked now to choose. Choose the way of your being and expression. It is stepping off into a vast unknown but we would suggest looking around with open eyes. There are many who are choosing the expression of the heart-mind and offer an image of a new world of possibilities.

Let’s take a look at the ego-mind. First, let me say that the ego is important to you. It has been tasked with keeping you safe in your life. The ego works in many ways which we don’t always attribute to keeping us safe. Sometimes it seems like it is asking us to puff up and be larger than we are. Sometimes it may seem to want us to hide. Think of the ego as a child sent to do an adult job. It doesn’t know how to approach the task. When it does a task and the approach works, then that is the approach the ego will take the next time presented with a similar situation. The behavior will become automatic in some cases. What my guides are suggesting (and many other guides too) is that it is time to let the ego-mind rest and engage the heart-mind.

So, now the dilemma of giving up something that has served and protected you so well. How to let go of your intellect, how about expanding it to include your heart and allowing that expansion to be called your heart-mind. The heart-mind embraces the intellectual process but recognizes that it has shortfalls.

Thus the intellect is honored and continues on the journey with its human but is now co-driving the journey and shortly enjoying the ride while the heart drives. If the process is allowed to progress as an opening or an expansion of the individual with the intellectual mind moving from the driver’s seat, to the co-pilot, to passenger seat, it is a gentle transition allowing the heart to move from the backseat or maybe the trunk even into the co-pilot seat and finally driving.

It is not necessarily stress free but it is certainly a clear step wise transition.

Starting to be aware of your heart and your heart’s desires is a good place to start to understand what the heart-mind might be and feel like to engage.

Your heart is the main gateway in the physical body to your Divinity.  So step one, becomes finding your heart. Do this in little steps. Do this through your feelings. Your heart understands the world through how it makes you feel. So, little steps. How does looking at a beautiful sky make you feel? Start your day by looking at the sky and feel what you feel. Do not judge it just notice and acknowledge the feeling.

Then throughout the day, let your eyes rest on something before you and see how it makes you feel. Again do not judge the feeling just acknowledge how it makes you feel and move on.

These are a few things to think on and try. I will be posting more over the coming little bit. In the meantime, Thanks for listening to your heart! Much love, Linda
