For 5/20/17:
*Note – this is a message originally received on 6/10/2016. I have an early function! ūüôā

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.

 

 

Climbing

Sometimes the journey,
your experiences,
feels like you are
climbing up a mountain –
it feels steep
with many challenges –
you wonder what
step to take,
so you can keep
climbing
and not slip
on rough terrain –
you visualize yourself
on top of the mountain,
but do you not need to
keep climbing,
keep moving,
to make it to the top?

When you are
so close
to obstacles
that you face,
is it not sometimes
hard to see the way?
Can you give
yourself some distance,
stepping back
in your mind to view
yourself upon
the mountain,
might you see
another path,
another way
that makes your journey
a little easier
for you?

And as you are
climbing,
are there not
perfect spaces
for your hands
to take hold,
as you pull up –
do you not
find places
for your feet
stable enough
to push off –
is there not
a push and pull
that keeps you moving
to the top?

You can look
back to where
you started,
to get a sense
of how far
you have come,
but when climbing
up a mountain,
it can look far
up to the top –
might you stay
present with
where you are,
focusing on
each step you take –
having Faith
that there is learning
on this journey
that you face?

Might you feel
that there are others,
reaching out
to pull you up –
you have ropes
that help secure you,
making sure
you do not fall –
you have support
upon this Journey,
you need only
have to ask –
are there not others
who are climbing
the mountain
just like you?

There are many ways
up a mountain,
there are many experiences
you may choose to have,
there are obstacles
that appear before you,
making the path
sometimes hard to find –
but when you make it
to the top of the mountain,
is not the view
sometimes worth
the climb?
Do you not learn
something about
yourself on each
journey that
you make?

You meet yourself
upon the mountain,
you see yourself
with every step –
does not every journey
you embark upon
bring you
closer to You?

You are not
the destination,
you are already
Where You Are.
Each journey you travel
brings you one step
closer to you –
and Who Are You?

You Are
the top of the mountain.
You Are
the magnificent view.
You Are
each challenge that
helps you to see –
You Are
a part of Everything,
the All That Is
is experiencing
Life and Love
and That Is You.

Healing Love

Restore.
Center.
Balance.

Feel the energy,
the power
that you draw
up from the earth,
grounding you
in this moment –
as you feel
the Love,
the connection
of Source,
of All That Is
in every fiber
of your be-ing –
does not this
balance,
this center of You –
have all it needs
to restore and heal?

Are there not times
that give you pause –
urging you to reflect,
to take time out,
to re-group,
to re-charge
and restore?

Might it be
a planned vacation,
or walks in the woods,
or health concerns
that make you stop,
getting your attention –
giving you time
and space to
restore,
center,
and balance?

Does not your body
begin to heal
when there is
something that
needs repair –
is exercise not
the breaking down
of what can be
built back up,
to be even
stronger than before?

Restore.
Center.
Balance.

Is this not
a cyclical phase –
is there not
an ebb and flow,
as you reach out
to learn and grow –
then draw back in
to reflect and absorb,
to grow again
in ways that may
surprise yourself?
Can you take
each experience
that sometimes may
throw you off –
as an opportunity
to shed the old,
as the Strength within
helps you to grow
stronger than before?

Are you not like
Phoenix rising –
shiny new
and stronger still –
are you not programmed
to regenerate,
to keep growing
and evolving –
with Strength and Love
at the core of
your be-ing?

Restore.
Center.
Balance.

Be patient
in the knowing
that Love will
lead the way –
might you always
feel the Healing
Power of Love.

Restore with Love.
Center to Love.
Balance all with Love.

Healing Love.
You Are.

Step With Love

You have climbed
the mountain,
you have reached
the top,
you have overcome
many of your fears,
your self-perceived
limitations,
congratulating yourself
upon reaching the summit-
do you not turn around
to see another mountain
that looms even higher,
right in the middle
of your path?

Do you not ask,
how can this be?
You have worked
very hard
to reach this place –
and now life
is asking
for more?

What do you fear
from the mountain
so tall,
this was not
in your plan,
where you think
you should go –
does not life
keep giving you
opportunities
to accept
and allow,
that where you are
is the perfect
place to be?

Might you begin
to climb the next
mountain to find,
that it is not
tall at all –
your Strength,
your Courage,
give you the energy
that you need,
to see over obstacles
that fall in your path,
obstacles that help
you to see,
that your biggest fears
are not outside
of you –
does not life
give you the chance
to move beyond your fears –
to accept and allow
that All Is Well,
you are safe
and You Are Loved,
no matter what
experience you face –
might you continue
one step at a time?

When you run
into walls
of fear,
of worry,
of doubt,
and you cannot face
another hurdle –
might you ask
for help –
ask God,
the Angels,
All That Is –
to lift you up,
to take your hand,
to help you see
that You Are Loved –
no matter the mountain
you are trying to climb –
is not the destination
always Love?

At all points
of your Journey,
You Are Always Love.
Do not all experiences
help you find
your way Home?

There is Love.
There Is Peace.
There Is Joy.
You Are That –
You Are Loved
with every step
You Are Love.

Momentum of Love

IMG_4893

4/18/17

One bird can signal
the dawning of
a new day,
as the suggestion
of daybreak
drops its
first glimpse
of a ray of light.

Do not more birds
join in –
a cacophony of sound,
is there not
momentum building
for the coming of day,
more activity
can be witnessed,
more sounds
can be heard,
as birds look for food,
and build nests,
do they not share
in the momentum
of the day?

Does not the
rising of the sun
signal a new day –
do you not share
in the momentum
of the beginning
of something new,
does not a
glimmer of hope
begin small,
like the first hint
of light –
then build as
more Light
shines within You?

Is there not
a first step,
like the first
hint of light,
that you may take
tentatively –
to begin,
to move forward,
waiting for momentum
to build –
for inertia to
carry you through
during times when
you feel you are
standing still?

And as all
is energy,
can you sense
and invite in –
the powerful energy
of Love –
if you walk with Love
in every step
that you take,
is there not power
in the Momentum of Love?

Can you be
the first note of Love
at the beginning
of the day,
building momentum
of loving energy,
that will carry
you forward –
is there not hope
as you believe
in the power
of Love?

Can not Love
transmute any
energy you may feel –
can you turn the tide,
changing energy
into Love?

You may be one
Voice of Love –
but do not others
join in –
a cacophony
of sound,
is there not
momentum building,
for the dawning
of Love –
is there not a glimmer
of hope,
beginning small
but as it builds,
does not Love
grow within,
as your Light
shines without –
can you not help
but join in
the Momentum of Love?

Be a voice,
a signal,
for Love to build.
Let the Momentum of Love
be a force within You.

Be Love.
Build Love.
Signal that
There Is
always Love.

Unstoppable

Persevere.

There are times
when challenges,
obstacles,
appear in your path,
seemingly blocking
the trail that
you are on.

Does this not
make you look up
from your walk
along a path
you know well,
that you are familiar with,
one that does not
require you
to pay attention
as you walk
along this journey?

Might you think
of an obstacle
in your way
as a setback,
an inconvenience,
might it throw you
into a state
of confusion
as now there
is something
in your way?

Persevere.
Does not an obstacle
in your path
make you re-think,
take a look around
to see what is
around you –
is there another
direction to take,
that will allow
you to continue
upon your journey –
even if it is
a different route
you take?

Do not challenges,
obstacles,
while at first
may seem daunting –
are they not
a way to get
your attention,
as are there
not times when
the path is
so familiar that
you could walk it
in your sleep?

Do you not persevere
when you are
drawn to the
path you travel,
but how can
you always know
how to proceed?

Do not what you perceive
as challenges,
obstacles –
do they not
give you the opportunity
to try something new,
to flex the muscle
you are working,
to grow as you use
your Strength and Courage
to persevere?

Can you look at
challenges,
obstacles,
with Gratitude in
your heart –
are opportunities
not sometimes hidden
in experiences
you cannot comprehend,
until you persevere
and look back
at where you
came from –
is there not learning
in each experience,
even if you
would not choose
the challenge,
the obstacle –
those times
that encourage you
to press on in
a different way?

Do you not
have all the
qualities you need
to persevere,
to carry on –
to keep moving
along your path,
with Gratitude
in your heart,
with Strength and Courage
at your core?

And with Love’s
Guiding Light –
may you continue
on your way –
letting each step
you take
be lifted up
with Love.

Persevere
with Strength,
with Courage,
with Gratitude.

With Love
You Are
unstoppable.

Carry on,
with Love,
carry on.

With Love

When you are not sure
how to move forward,
what is the next
step to take,
what decisions need
to be made,
when you seek
more clarity –
ask with Love.

There is momentum
in movement,
as you take
your first step –
do you not start
a ball rolling –
will not one movement
lead to another –
can you feel
the energy shifting?
Move with Love.

And with movement
comes a rhythm,
like a train
moving down the track –
linked with cars
behind it follow,
joining in the adventure –
are you not ready
to keep riding,
to see where you
may go?
Explore with Love.

And if you wish
to change direction,
to move to another track,
another experience
may await you –
you are the
conductor on this train –
now that you are moving
it is easy to make
a switch –
there are many paths
to explore.
Change with Love.

You are here
to experience.
You are here
to embody
the Love That You Are.
With Love,
are there not
infinite possibilities
to Be the Love
That You Are?

How can you
ever not be
with Love?

As You Are Love –
Love is always
with You.

With Love,
You Are and
All Is Well.
