Messages From The Ancient Ones – Balance of the Heart

You are doing well in bringing your heart into balance. Your heart as in feelings in balance with your heart-of-hearts as in your purposefulness. (Personal will combined with Divine Connection) Each heart has it's value and together they bring you the fulfillment you desire.

Once these two aspects of your being are in harmony, then your efforts to reach for the Light and expand your awareness are greatly blessed. Your intuition will expand and guide you into the next right step for your journey.

This balancing technique seems odd at first, but with use, it becomes your regular state of being. You will live from your heart-of-hearts while your emotions alert you and inspire you. This grants the mind a task to perform which it will do with great ease and proficiency.

What WILL you choose for yourself? Do you choose to let your emotions run the show? This leads you away from fulfillment. Emotions alert you to things that feel unsafe or to things that bring you joy. Yet, sometimes trying new things feels unsafe and emotions hold you back from stepping forward. Notice the emotions and see what they try to tell you without falling prey to their demands. When the heart-of-hearts is online with your emotions, this will grant you courage, willingness and peace for the journey.

Your journey leads you into amazing things! We walk with you in this.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Point of Center

As you awaken to the unfolding of your journey today and each day, we encourage you to come from a place of center.

Each day you may have a list of things you wish to accomplish. This is good. And yet, the greatest accomplishments come from a point of center. Point of center is the place where mind and heart and spirit meet, join, and create.

You can decide to do a thing, yet without your heart being in it and your spirit willing, nothing will happen. So, too if you want something to happen yet don't have a plan, nothing happens then either.

How do you find this place of center? In one word, relax.

The state of relaxation or ease allows all of you to come on-line energetically and function together.

How do you find this sense of ease? In two words, let go.

Can you observe the sunset without having to make it different? That's letting go. Can you notice the breath in your lungs and not need to change it? That is being at ease. This at ease state of being is not being unconscious or oblivious! Rather it is an awakened state of awareness without pressure, expectation or urgency. Moving into this state of awareness with ease brings you into center and all aspects of your creative self come on-line.

It is from this place of center that we inspire you, guide you and cause things to happen in your benefit more easily.

Allow us to assist you!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Power

You are more powerful than you know.

You perceive your power as the ability to influence others. We perceive power as the ability to influence yourself in a good way. This is the power of choice and the power of love combined.

You can choose to do good or to do ill. You can feel the need to make yourself heard. You can experience the need to be right. You may take action towards these goals. None of these are true power.

The power we consider as power is the ability to influence one's self beyond habituated patterns and beyond other's opinions. Choosing to take action out of love and compassion rather than self will and glory.

This is not to say that we expect you to give up all of your own goals and become self-sacrificing. Not at all! The motivation of love allows one to set the self-serving goals aside as needed. Being kind to one's self and nurturing one's self is necessary to move into a state of true power.

Yet, the power of which we speak allows others to be kind to themselves and nurturing of themselves without taking any offence or need to change them.

This power is limitless and enduring. This power comes from the place of choice instead of the place of reaction. This power comes from the place of wonderment ("I wonder what my next step might be") and allowing Divine Source to reveal that next step.

Within the place of power, there is tremendous peace. You do not feel peace? Then take a new look at your power and your power source.

Breathe in a new perspective as if you ALREADY were all powerful . . . then move forward with that feeling/awareness.

We have more to say on this, but for now, just allow yourself time to ponder and notice how you derive your power and how you utilize this power. There is much to be gained in this search.

We walk with you in this discovery.

Just Make My Intuition Go Away! Part I

The biggest reason people want to cut off their Intuition and Spiritual Awareness has to do with spiritual overload. We sense and feel everything around us. It feels like it’s just toooo much!

When I first awakened to my Intuitive self, I could hardly go in to a restaurant. I would pass the first table and feel everything each person at that table was feeling. I would feel their sadness, anger, joy, frustration, loneliness, grief, and worries to name a few. Then I would move past the second table while still feeling overwhelmed from the first table. God help me if we were seated in the back of a large restaurant!!

Once I even felt the wind blow through me on the way into the restaurant and felt a sharp wave of overwhelming feelings . . . nearly knocked me to my feet! I was so unsuspecting!

My husband, Phil, was understanding, but horrified and helpless as he watched me go from happy and joyful to heavy and overwhelmed. He strongly encouraged me to do something about that because it was breaking his heart.

So, over the years, I’ve found several solutions that really work. I’ll share some really powerful ones with you. I share them with you because living closed down is really not an option. All those walls and barriers we attempt to put up don’t really work. They just take whole lot of energy to sustain them. There are easier ways to be free of that energetic overwhelming experience while remaining intuitively and spiritually open.

Closing down or shutting down or removing the intuition is like removing your eyes. You need your eyes to see! You need your intuition to “see” your world energetically. Your intuition is your early warning system (you can sense something amiss before it appears) and your life support system (your life-force energy flows through the intuition).

Here is the first practice that I did when I was just newly awakened. It really helped tune me in and eased the trauma of being overwhelmed incredibly fast. Before you go into a restaurant or a place filled with people, ask Divine Source to “As a practice, please reveal to me a word or blessing for one person in this place.” Your guides/angels/Divine Source will then direct your attention to one person. All else will fade. All else will fade!!! You will not receive any other information!

You will be gifted a word a thought, an impression, or a kind blessing for that one person. You do not have any responsibility to give that word or blessing to the person! This is just your practice mode! Thank your guides/angels/Divine Source for this information and just be “at rest” where you are. Clutter starts to pour in? Immediately ask your guides/angels/Divine Source, “Please allow me to be at rest.” Then focus upon the menu or who you are with or if you are by yourself, bring a book. Do not allow yourself to be distracted from “at rest.”

You have choice and power over your intuition. It does not have power over you! Know this! Practice this! Take charge of this gift!

If you get into a car, you guide the car to where you are going . . . it is a mode of transportation only. It doesn’t take you where you don’t want to go.

Your intuition is a mode of awareness to get you where you really want to be – A Divinely connected blessing to this world. You are a better blessing when coming from a place of “at rest” than a place of overloaded. From that place of “at rest” you can receive more and

deeper information for one person. This is a huge practice that really helps you move beyond overload and into all the aspects of clear-seeing, clear-hearing, clear-communication, and clear-sensing.

Also, it’s coming to my attention that you may enter a restaurant, movie theatre or shopping center and “hear” whispering or conversations just out of ear-shot. You are hearing other people’s guides and angels as they are either communicating with one another or sending guidance to their person. This is really none of your business. However, this experience lets you know that you are tuning in to the frequency of guides and angels and can communicate with them . . . your guides and angels and other people’s guides and angels. How cool is that!?!

You can use the SAME practice of requesting a word or blessing to let the guides and angels know that you can hear them. Again, ask, “As a practice, please reveal to me a word or blessing for one person in this place.” They will either give you a word or blessing, or they may move out of ear-shot. Either way, you are not so overwhelmed with that energetic noise. Again, you are not responsible for giving the word or blessing to anyone! This is just practice so you can receive and then move into “at rest” mode. Like an engine on idle, it’s on, but not going anywhere. Your awareness is ready, willing, and able to get you where you want to go WHEN YOU DECIDE you want to take the journey.

Obviously, there are many other techniques that I could share with you, but this – by far – is the most valuable. This not only eases up the energetic/intuitive clutter that overwhelms, but it also prepares you for MORE! And if you are ready for MORE, I can help you with that, too. MORE to come on that!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Healing with the Living Light of Love

When you turn a light on in a dark room, the darkness vanishes.

So, too, when you turn the True Light on in your life, darkness vanishes.

There may still be darkness in the corners of a room where boxes or furniture may obscure the light. So, too fears and worries, shame and regret can obscure the Light of Love from your life.

To bring Light more fully into your being, look at those places that obscure the Light. Look at them with Love. Not as a way to beat yourself up or inflict more shame or regret, but rather noticing the lesson learned while releasing the pain.

Don't see the lesson? Perhaps the lesson was not yours to learn. Perhaps you were the teacher. Sometimes the pain is darkest when we bring hard lessons for others to receive. It may even feel as if the punishment is yours. Perhaps not. If you cannot find the lesson to be learned, bathe the situation in Light and Love. In confidence release the pain and suffering knowing that if there truly is a lesson, it will appear after the pain has been relinquished.

Please release the need to suffer about it. Do you feel as if suffering makes the pain worth it? No. Pain and suffering are optional. Your experience is no less significant viewed from a place of wholeness and grace than viewed within the walls of suffering.

As the Living Light of Love washes over old wounds, they release naturally in and of themselves. They are not constructed of light. Light washes the suffering away, if you allow the Light to reach these obscured places.

Once released, energy opens up for you. Renewed energy that had been used to hold the darkness in place. Rejoice in this!

We rejoice with you!

Campaign to Refrain from Disdain

Phil and I noticed the other day that we had somehow developed a tone of distain with each other. I hadn’t been feeling well and he’d been really feeling the pressure of deadlines at work. Whatever the cause, we didn’t like it and we made a pact to refrain from distain.

Distain is that nasty sharp tone of voice that cuts deeply. The words may be harmless in and of themselves. “What?” is an appropriate way to seek additional clarification. However, that same “What?” spoken with a silent “you worthless piece of scum” energy projected in the query harms both the one speaking and the one hearing.

It’s like a paper cut. Not very deep, yet it hurts like heck and it continues to hurt for days afterward. If experienced again, slices deeper and stings like crazy. People don’t die from a paper cut, but the sting reminds one that they are no longer ‘safe” with that person. When we speak with that tone of disdain, we sow the seeds of fear and mistrust. We are, in actuality, asking the other person to mistrust us!

Why do we speak in that tone of disdain? It’s a learned response to frustration. It’s meant as a simple nudge to push someone to please us. We want a certain thing a certain way, and we want it right now. Maybe stressors elsewhere make us feel impatient with the ones we love. Maybe we just get full of ourselves. Maybe we just are functioning barely within our limits. The outcome remains the same. Pain and mistrust ensues.

Energetically, here’s what happens. That tone of disdain cuts right through the energy field surrounding a person and slices directly into their heart-space. This slice is quick and sharp, so it doesn’t feel—well, terrible—just a slight “urk” feeling. Pulled up short. This opens the energy field and the heart-space. Positive energy leaks out while the disdain edges in. The disdain is like poison. Without realizing it, the receiver responds in distain as well. Both people leak positive energy while both people “fester” with this disdain poison all the while sending it back and forth.

We feel unsafe and teach/reinforce that unsafe feeling. The really sad thing is that we speak this way to ourselves!!!

So, how do we refrain from disdain? Notice it when it happens. Recognize it is not about you! Release the disdain, and heal yourself immediately with inner words of truth and kindness. (Like, I love, honor and respect myself. I appreciate all that I do in the time and way I do it.)

In time, if another person has spoken with disdain towards us, we can speak calmly to the other person. Perhaps we can let them know (lovingly as we can) that the way they said a thing kinda hurt. They may or may not get it. They may or may not be able to change. Their words of disdain are evidence of their own pain of frustration. Notice and let it go.

When we notice that we’ve spoken in a disdainful way, we apologize immediately! Even to ourselves! We restate what we intended to say in a clear, non-emotionally charged tone of voice. EVEN IF WE FEEL THEY (we) DESERVE our disdain, they don’t. No one deserves disdain. It’s that disdain poison talking. Stop listening to that voice.

We get to speak our truth clearly with a neutral voice. This heals us and offers healing to the one listening. Speak to the heart. The heart hears and feels what is being said and how it is spoken. Let’s let our words heal.

I wonder if we could start a campaign to refrain from disdain this year? Could we speak clear truth? I wonder what a difference this could make in our world? Let’s give that clear voice a try!

And Then…

After Last Week’s message at The Divine Fellowship, I was asked to transcribe some of our notes for ease of use. So, here ya go!

As I was sending out an email to the church membership, I came to the part where I make a note of the upcoming message title. Nothing had come to me as yet, so I began to ponder all the things that would be good to talk about. I heard, “And then . . .” and continued pondering other topics. I heard, “And then . . .” again, and dismissed it again, because I had no idea what that would be about. I heard, “And then . . .” again and laughed out loud while typing that in as the message title. I realized I would be given the information as the week unfolded. There have been rare occasions that the message information was delivered as I walked from the back of the sanctuary to the podium. They’ve never let me down! (God, Angels, Spirit Guides – whatevers – lol)

So, as the week progressed I decided to get out my trusty link to Bible Gateway where you can look up verses quickly. I typed in “and then” and hundreds of passages popped up. I read a lot of those and discovered that whenever the Bible used the phrase “and then” it referred to a moment of change! Profound change.

So, I argued with God that this would be a better message for the first of the year. I was reminded by an astrology friend later in the day that the solstice was coming up and it was a great time for change. Sheesh. I guess God might have a better plan than me.

So as I considered the “and then,” along with the Solstice just days away, I realized that there was a wonderful opportunity to use this time and this method to really create chance in our lives for good!

So, the process is this. . . . State your current struggle as if someone else was having it in the past tense. She was overwhelmed. He was worn out. She was fearful. He was alone.

And then, add “and then” to the phrase. She was overwhelmed, and then . . . He was worn out, and then . . . She was fearful, and then . . . He was alone, and then . . .

And then, add a possible new insight or action. She was overwhelmed, and then she found her center. He was worn out, and then he reclaimed his power. She was fearful, and then she became aware of her strength.

Instant shift!!!

Then say the “And Then” statement to yourself morning and evening until the Solstice when it changes to a personal truth statement. I was overwhelmed, and then I found my center. If you can repeat this to yourself for 21 days, true change happens! I hope you give it a try!

Here are a few “And Then” statements for you to choose from. Maybe more than one will apply to your current situation. Notice how you can instantly shift as soon as you say the “And Then” statement. There is Divine Power attached to this! You are not alone in your journey and this is a tool gifted directly from Source just this last week for you to use!

She was overwhelmed, and then she found her center.

He was worn out, and then he reclaimed his power.

She was fearful, and then she became aware of her strength.

He felt alone, and then he connected to Source (and went fishing)

She felt betrayed, and then she found her truth.

He felt full of self-doubt, and then he woke up (awakened).

She felt judged and in turn judgmental, and then she found compassion.

He felt hopeless, and the he saw a glimmer of Light (The Light found him!)

She felt anxious, and then she realized her worth.

He felt full of uncertainty, and then he tapped into Source and was filled with “knowing”.

She felt unimportant, and then she realized her worth.

He felt angry, and then he realized the story he was telling herself. And then he laughed.

You don’t have to know HOW any of this will happen. By being willing and open, things shift and you just automatically find your way into that new state of being. We tell ourselves things that are not true. We hear them in our head and we believe them. Most of the stuff we say to ourselves is just rubbish impressed upon us from events and circumstances long passed.

These “And Then” statements allow our brain to open to new possibilities . . . AND THEN our heart finds the way.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – An Awakening Moment

As you bring your awareness into each moment you can truly choose who you will become and what you will do. If you allow yourself to get triggered by old experiences in new clothing, you merely re-invest in the old, unpleasant experiences. By noticing that you have become triggered, you can see the trigger moment for what it is . . . An awakening moment.

In that moment of awakening, you can ask for assistance. Divine Assistance. Angelic Assistance. Intuitive Assistance. This assistance will allow you to see and perceive this triggered moment for what it truly is . . . an awakening moment.

In that awakening moment, you harness the power to change. Change who you are. How you respond. What you say. In that moment of awakened power, no trigger can steal you energy or steal your true power. As an empowered one, you can see and perceive things clearly, without the need to struggle or be right. As you bask in this form of power, you notice that you have no need to discredit another or shame yourself - or be shamed. You can see the situation for what it truly is . . . a blessed opportunity towards freedom.

As you awaken in this way, you can offer to Divine Source, the inner conflict and trauma that no longer serves. This, too, allows you the opportunity to explore spiritual freedom.

Though physical ordeals occur naturally as a course of being human, the trauma and drama minimizes and your soul soars above all conflict.

With this freedom comes great serenity and greater peace. This fills you with spiritual bliss. We hope you fall into it with great joy!

We shall see you there!

Bring In The Light

I recently did a message at The Divine Fellowship entitled Bring in the Light. There were a few highlights that I wanted to share with you.

We spend a lot of energy and effort fearing what might happen. We spend our energy replaying old events in our minds hoping to understand then or protect ourselves from being harmed in that same way again. This generates anxiety. The fear and anxiety feed the darkness, and yet, there are things that we can do and do well that causes the darkness to diminish.

When you take time to meditate . . . darkness fades.

When you give a friend or stranger a compliment . . . The Light glows brighter.

When you laugh (genuinely find joy) . . . The Light amplifies.

When you Pray for yourself or another . . . The Light shines.

When you are brave and try something new . . . The Light intensifies.

When you allow someone to be where they are – even if it’s not where you want them to be . . . Light beams.

When you let someone go ahead of you in line . . . The Light blazes

When you notice a sunrise or a sunset . . . the Light radiates.

When you snap a photo for a stranger . . . the darkness scatters.

When you welcome differences while others exclude and ridicule . . . the darkness slips away.

When you tell someone how they’ve impacted your life . . . darkness folds in on itself.

When you are gentle when others are abrupt and impatient . . . darkness yields.

When you refrain from anger when cut off in traffic . . . darkness shatters.

When you forgive someone or take responsibility for your own actions . . . darkness scatters.

When you hold sacred ground for someone who is suffering . . . darkness evaporates.

When you speak kindness when others spew hatred and fear . . . darkness is VANQUISHED!

Darkness cannot prevail. Darkness fears YOU and the Light of Love that abides within you! Be the Light that you already are!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Child-like Wonder

We ask that you find a moment to rekindle you child-like wonder. All the hurry and rush that this time of year seems to require, drains energy from you. The very thing you strive to recapture eludes you!

Child-like wonder takes only a moment and generates incredible energy for you to use in your day-to-day efforts.

Remind yourself of the awe of watching a spider spin its web on a bright summer day. Your curiosity caused you to really look at something closely. You didn't judge the spider as good or bad, you just noticed it with all your attention.

Noticing a spider now might send you running for a fly swatter or someone less timid to eliminate it from your awareness. So choose something more pleasant to your awareness. Choose to notice something that pleases your eye and your heart.

A favorite person? A favorite place? A steaming cup of warm liquid? Clouds rolling by?

Notice how easy it has become to attach a judgment upon any of these things. That person has flaws. That place is far away. That liquid cost too much. Those clouds may bring rain or snow or gloom.

Release the judgement! Just notice and observe.

As you notice without judgment, you become aware of so much more! This awareness heightens as you increase your ability to enjoy the noticing! Can you allow yourself to just breathe and be?

You will find us here.
