Life-line of Love

8/20/17

When there is darkness,
does not Courage
help you find
your innate Strength,
to keep you going,
to keep you looking
for the Light –
even if the Light
sometimes feels
like a single beam
that touches your heart,
with a Life-line of Love?

Is it not this
connection,
connecting you
to loved ones,
that you now sense
in your heart –
is it not this Love
that brings you
Hope and Faith
that you are
not alone?

How can you
not be connected
when a
Life-line of Love
connects you to
Who You Are –
not only the story
here on earth –
do you not imagine
if you could follow
this Life-line,
that you would see
and understand
that you are part
of All That Is –
connected to
and held in this
womb of Love
and support?

Your Life-line of Love
can never be broken,
even when there are times
you feel cut-off,
or sometimes drifting,
you need not wait
to find
the pot of gold
at the end of the
rainbow –
Here Is Love,
with You now,
always connected,
You Are –
how can you
not be connected
to the Source
of Who You Are?

Is it not when
you pull so hard
on your Life-line
of Love,
that you understand
it has all the
Strength you need?

With Courage and Strength,
can you turn to
Gratitude,
to illuminate
and see that
You Are Light
and You Are Love,
as you now see
that it is You
on the other end
of your Life-line
of Love?

All together.
All One.
Always connected.
Always Loved.
You Are
so very, very
Loved.

Catharsis of Love

20170728 XPicture

7/28/17

When clouds are
dark and heavy
and begin to block
your view,
do they not
then release –
sheets of rain
pouring down,
is there then
not a clearing
of the skies
as light returns,
with a lightness
in the air,
does it not
lighten up
your mood?

After this catharsis
of the air
being cleansed,
do not birds return
with vigor
as they flit
and fly about –
the sun beams
break through
mistiness that
water brings –
do you not
feel lifted up
to see the sun
shining again?

What is a cathartic
moment
that can lift
you up –
it may be crying,
it may be laughter,
is it not something
that bursts through –
like a rain cloud
that cannot hold on
to the rain any more –
does it not
feel good
to release
what you no longer
need to hold?

Might you find
beams of Joy
in any moment
big or small,
when something
touches your heart,
might it burst open,
allowing you
to let go of
what you hold
and what builds up –
does not release
let the Catharsis
of Love begin?

How can you lighten
up your load –
when feeling heaviness,
how might you
let go –
does not light
pour in
following a darkened storm,
is that not often
the most beautiful
time of day?

There is always Light,
yes, sometimes blocked
by the clouds –
but is not the sun
always waiting
to appear –
as the Light
within You
is always ready
to shine through
whatever passes by,
whatever blocks
your view –
is not the view
even brighter
when your Light
comes shining through?

Can you let
the Light of Love
break through
any clouds
that surround you?
Be it laugher
or through tears,
when you touch
your heart –
does it not
beam with the
Essence of Love
That Is You –
breaking through
all barriers
with the Light
and Love
of You?

You Are Light.
You Are Love.
Lifted in Love
You Are –
a Beautiful Light.

Shine through.
Shine on.
Shine Your Love.

I Am

The mind is
a powerful
communicator –
giving you
direction,
commands
and thoughts –
it plans
your day,
it keeps
you safe,
but does
it not also
worry and doubt
and sometimes
not see
that You Are Love?

There is no
turning off
the mind –
but is it
not ready
to receive
new direction,
new programming –
do you not
speak a language
that the mind
can receive –
when you tell it
“I Am Love?”

Is there not
a flicker
of understanding,
a familiarity
that seeps in –
the mind may
think the “I”
means separation,
but does not
“I Am”
encompass All?

Does not “I Am Joy”
remind you of
letting go
to reach your
joyful self –
your mind
can visualize
times when you
have had fun,
but does not Joy
touch you
deep inside –
when you say,
“I Am Joy?”

Does not “I Am Strength”
make you stand up tall,
feeling your innate Courage
that comes with Strength –
it is not to overpower,
it is your essence within,
can you not
sense your magnificence
when you say,
“I Am Strength?”

Does not “I Am Gratitude”
bring you right
to your heart –
is that not where
this Journey begins –
when your mind
gets too loud,
when it brings
static to your
Be-ing,
can you begin
with Gratitude –
reminding your mind
that You Are
centered at
the heart –
as you speak
from your Soul –
“I Am Gratitude.”

Remind the mind
of Who You Are.
Use words
that the mind
can understand.
There is no
need to cajole,
no reasoning
to give,
there is only Truth –
and it is –
You Are Love
and
I Am That.

I Am All.
I Am One.
Perfect.
Whole.
Remember.
Remind.

I Am Love.

Answer of Love

20170612 XPicture

6/12/17

You may ask –
Why is there fear,
why pain,
why hurt?

Yes, you have
these experiences
in this world –
and are they all
not a way
to experience
and know
what is Strength,
what is Courage,
what is Joy,
what is Love?

Are there not times
when the absence
of Joy
lets you know
when Joy
rushes in –
you then say,
“I know Joy” –
is it not
the knowingness
that you wish
to experience
here on earth?

And is it not
when you look fear
in the eye –
that you experience
the Strength
and Courage
That You Are –
yes, you would prefer
not to know fear,
but does that
not give you
the opportunity
to see the Strength
that resides
within You?

And as the healing
Balm of Love
heals all pain,
all hurt,
do you not find
so many ways
to experience
Love?
And as you
look for healing –
do you not pass
the healing on,
is there not a
cycle,
a sharing
of healing Love?

Yes, this world
has its share
of fear,
of pain
and hurt –
but does it
not give you
the opportunity
to feel the Light
that shines in You –
to know the Love
That You Are –
does not the healing
Balm of Love
rush in,
when there is
something that is
asking to be healed?

There is no need
to experience
fear and pain
to Be
the Strength,
the Courage,
the Joy,
the Love
That You Are –
but yes,
there are times
when you ask
“Who am I?”

And in that question,
in the journey,
in the healing
that you seek –
does it not
always lead you
to Love,
lead you to You?

You Are the answer.
You Are the healing.
You Are Always Love.

Sail With Love

20170602 XPicture

6/02/17

A small boat
on the ocean
may be rocked
back and forth,
as the waters
get rough –
do you not
feel the turbulence,
do you not feel
each wave
as it splashes
against this boat
upon the sea?

Now imagine
a large ship,
sure and steady
in the ocean –
does not the bow
cut through
even choppy waters –
would these
same waves
not fall away
from this ship,
might you as
a passenger
not be aware
that there is
rough water
on the sea?

Yes, there are times
when you may
feel tossed about –
like the smaller boat
upon the sea,
feeling each wave,
each swell,
that threatens
to overturn
your vessel –
are there not times
when you feel small
upon this vast
Sea of Life?

But now close your eyes
and imagine
your vessel
is able to expand
to its natural state –
as deep and wide
as it needs to be,
to be secure,
able to weather
any storm
that may come up,
that may try
to toss you around
on this Sea of Life?

Yes, there may
be storms
that come up,
when you need to
take shelter,
to ride out the storm –
but as You Are
a Vessel of Love –
do you not have Strength
in your bow
and with Courage
may you raise
your sails
to catch the wind –
are you not One
with earth and sky
as you move forward
in this Sea of Life?

Expand your vessel
to its natural
State of Love.
You Are meant to sail
on the Sea of Life.
Navigate your course
with Strength,
with Courage,
to find Peace.

May Love
be your beacon
and your safe harbor
on whatever
seas you sail.
You are safe
and you are loved.
Sail with Love.

Encouraged

Encouragement.

Can you not find
courage
in encouragement?

Yes, courage is an
innate quality
that resides within you –
but does it not take
love and support,
encouragement –
to sometimes
draw upon
this courage?

Do you not
extend a hand,
encouraging others
to find their strength –
is it not common
to cheer
for the underdog –
is it not inspiring
to witness someone
rising above
all expectations,
finding their
strength and courage?

Are these not
qualities that you
encourage others
to find within –
even as you
may find it difficult
to encourage yourself –
is that why when
others give you
a gentle push
and cheer you on –
do you not then
draw upon
your Strength
and Courage
that waits
patiently within?

Can you be
your greatest
cheerleader?
Can you believe
in the Love That You Are?
Why wait for courage
to come to the fore –
when Courage is
Who You Are?

You have love
and support
all around you.
You are stronger
than you know.
Encourage yourself
to Be yourself –
with Strength
can you face
any fear,
with Courage
can you
find the way,
with Love
is not all
possible for you –
are you not
limitless,
possible
Love?

These are not
qualities to seek.
You need not
encouragement
to Know:
You Are Strength.
You Are Courage.
You Are Love
and so very Loved.

Be You.
Believe You.
Be Love.

For 5/20/17:
*Note – this is a message originally received on 6/10/2016. I have an early function! ūüôā
 
6/10/16
 
Superheroes.
 
Everyone –
at one time 
or another,
has loved,
looked up to,
or imagined themselves
being saved
by a superhero
or having the powers
of a superhero;
someone 
or something
with fantastic abilities –
usually for 
the good 
of others-
even if
embattled against
the “forces”¬†
of the so-called “evil.”
 
And is there
not usually
a vulnerable person
beneath the
cape or costume –
hiding in plain sight
not wanting
others to 
“see” what powers,
what abilities
they possess?
 
Does not this
superhero culture
demonstrate
the duality
of struggles
and angst
here on earth?
 
You place heroes
on a pedestal  
to be held up
as different –
with “super”¬†
powers and abilities
that very few have.
 
And we wish to remind you,
what a “hero” you are
to face the challenges
on this earth.
You have the 
power within
your very soul –
and abilities 
you cannot imagine.
 
And you are so loved.
 
And with that love –
is it so hard 
to imagine
raising everyone up
on the same pedestal,
lifting each 
vulnerable, hiding hero
up for all to see,
to experience
the fantastic abilities
that each person has
with and without 
the costume.
 
You do not need
to put on a cape
to shine
and to serve others.
Open your heart.
Open your eyes
to the power and abilities
that are within You.
 
Be fantastic.
Be super.
Be You –
That You Are.
A Hero for Love.
