Messages From The Ancient Ones – Manifesting in Brilliance

Your heart and your mind link with your soul/spirit to create . . . to create!! What your heart desires and your mind can conceive, your soul/spirit accesses Divine Energy to create.

This creation is miraculous.

Within this creation energy holds a higher awareness that guides you not only to creating your heart's desires, but to much more and much better than your mind can imagine!

Within this creation awareness resides the power of Divine Source who knows what serves you better and best.

Any unfulfilled wishes may be a result of lack of true heart's desire, a lack of imagination, or a lack of spiritual insight to fulfill your goal.

Divine Source will not thwart any heart's desire that is worthy. Even things that are not ideal may be manifested because there is learning within the process.

We ask that you listen to your intuition and your insights as these nudges from Divine Source guide you toward your goals, hopes and dreams. Hold your goals, hopes and dreams lightly in your expanded awareness. This grants you the opportunity to learn, grow, revise, and revisit as necessary.

You may find your goals, hopes and dreams change and adapt with this form of expanded awareness because of the guidance and insight you are receiving.

Within the journey of fulfilling your goals, hopes and dreams, you will find your destiny - your purpose - your mission as a loving manifestation of Divine Source.

We are in awe of your power, your light, and your brilliance in fulfilling this manifestation of Divine Love.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Your Essence of Being

You are on your way. Your journey unfolds before you.

You may, perhaps, see the same old thing. the same old work, and the same old world. Yet within this same-ness, a new-ness unfolds.

Each day you perfect your essence of being. Each day you become closer to really liking yourself - even for a few brief moments here and there.

In this noticing one's self with the eyes of awareness, you see truly for the first time. Each time you utilize the eyes of awareness directed at yourself, you perfect your understanding of who you really are.

Your perceptions become clearer and your choices become more spirit driven rather than ego (self-centered-ness) driven. 

You have always been this divine person, yet only with the eyes of awareness can you perceive yourself in this way.

This is the 'perfecting' of your being we refer to. Not the drive to be perfect, but the drive to notice from a clear awareness which leads to seeing one's self as perfected. Perfected by grace and by love. Perfected meaning without shame or regret. Rather, with humble willingness to grow.

The noticing is with perfection - there is no judgment in this awareness. Merely knowing and seeing.

From this clear place of seeing one's self as filled with grace and love, one can move forward with courage and joy. Your projects, hopes, and dreams unfold before you. Wisdom guides your words and your deeds.

For a moment, just notice yourself right now. Not the physical form. Not the deeds done or not done. Not the feelings whether they be pleasant or unpleasant. . . notice YOU.

It may feel a bit tricky - who is noticing and what am I noticing? Just be with the noticing for a moment longer.

Within this noticing there is peace. Those external conflicts and challenges your physical, mental, and emotional beings experience can be viewed from a neutral perspective. Within this neutral perspective rests your spirit.

Your spirit connects directly to Divine Spirit/Source/Creator.

Notice this connection. Notice the power under the surface that awaits your command. Notice the joy within the power that sits in readiness for your awareness. Notice the love that flows through all of it.

Herein resides your essence of being.

Beautiful, isn't it?!

We are here with you.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Getting Ready for Change

Each day, you shift and transform. Yet, each day you remain you. Your body ages, but your spirit remains young. Your awareness expands but you remain on this physical plane of existence. Even the cells in your body change, yet here you are.

Change is an immutable law of existence here. Things can and will change. Maybe the changes are powerful and immediately felt. Maybe the changes take lifetimes.

We are here to help you through life's changes. The world around you is changing. You are changing and you may not even know how, to what extent, nor what the end result will be. You may feel the need to resist or fight the changes. It is certainly natural to hang on to what is familiar. We encourage you however, to notice the opportunity for change as it arrives and allow yourself to step into the flow as best you can. The changes that we see for you spiritually are monumental.

This means your old habituated patterns are being challenged. Do you really need to continue to do that any more? What might things look like if you did something different? This grants you the opportunity to tap into innovation and unlimited possibilities.

Often, we hear you crying out because you feel stuck! Yet, you resist change when it finally appears!

Your previous limitations prohibit you from seeing beyond what currently exists for you. Now is the time to discover greater aspects within your grasp. New ideas unfold for you when you step into the flow of innovation and change.

Yes, there will be fear, but not fear as a deterrent. Any new adventure triggers an aspect of high alert. Do not mistake this sharp edge of awareness within this high alert as a bad thing. This feeling is different than the high alert you feel when you are moving into danger or something unpleasant. You will intuitively know an unpleasant thing and will step out of harms way. This is not what we are discussing here. We are discussing with you this opportunity for optimistic growth for greater happiness and peace.

You desire happiness and peace. If you are not happy now and peaceful now, or at least not as happy or peaceful as you'd like to be, then open to the opportunity for change that is coming. Can you have a sense of this change?

Welcome it when you see it.

How to welcome it? Notice it with your full attention. Notice your sense of high alert and pay attention to that. This watchfulness is without distress, Dear One. It's like being a child and thinking you might have heard the ice cream truck! Is this for me?! Shall I get excited?! Shall I go get some "change" and decide what I might select this time? I could have this or that or the other thing. What delights me now?

This is the energy we bring to you. Be alert and get your "change" ready for a new delight!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – The Power of Silence

Silence is golden, they say. Sometimes this is true. Silence can be a shield to protect a weary soul.

Other times, silence is deafening and filled with sorrow. Silence can block the flow of truth from one person to another. Silence shuts down compassion and care when used as a weapon.

Yet, silence has great value for the soul searching for its own truth. Too much input from others crowds the mind and the soul on its exploration of truth. A wise person values those moments of silence wherein they seek a new perspective, or they explore a new idea.

Here you will find peace, joy, comfort, insights and awareness! We wait for you there. 

They key with silence is balance and intent. What is the intent of silence? If its intent is to punish another, that silence hurts and causes great harm . . . perhaps as much as or more harm than saying hurtful words. Yes, take time to formulate your response to someone, yet shutting them behind the cold wall of silence unjustly inflicts injury. Saying that you are frustrated and not comfortably talking in this moment honors your need for quiet to reset your spiritual awareness and explore your boundaries while honoring the connection you have with another human being.

While making time to communicate with others holds great value, making time to communicate with one's self and one's spiritual guides also has great value. Honor both.

Have you experienced the power of silence for your own self today? Have you quieted your mind and allowed your inner voice to be heard? Have you allowed yourself moments of respite from the auditory clutter of the world?

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Moving Forward

Have you sought refuge?

Did you rest there when you found it or did you struggle on?

Did you seek peace?

Did you abide in that peace or did you disregard it and press on?

You ask and you receive, yet you discard the gift!

We know you feel shame if you are not moving forward in every aspect of your life. You believe that resting is not moving forward. You believe that abiding in peace is a luxury. According to whom?

Take the time to rest and to be at peace. Peace, as you have defined it, is empty - the absence of doing. Not true! Peace holds great keys to moving forward!

Peace - peace as is given to you from Divine Source - grants you great power! Peace generates energy to move forward with great calm and strength.

Sitting still with an electronic screen before you is not peace. This, indeed, is the "empty" you rush to avoid.

Fill yourself with bliss! Bliss is found within the space of peace. We have much more to say to you about this, yet, for now we encourage you to take a new look at peace. Bring your awareness into peace and see what happens next!

We await your surprise!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – The Journey

Your journey has been fraught with trials and challenges. Some you brought on yourself by choices that were ill advised. Some were gifted to you by people in your life. Still others happened due to mere happenstance.

Yet, these trials are not meant to discourage you, though you may become discouraged. These trials are not meant to harm you though you may feel pain and discomfort in the process.

These trials are not some higher being dumping sorrow and pain upon you in some sick sense of power or pleasure. May it never be!

These trials happen because you are human and walk a human path in a physical world. Suffering happens. It's all a part of the process. One person's suffering may seem terrible while others seem to skate by. This is all a part of their soul's journey and has nothing to do with their value as a being nor their power as a spiritual being. It is just the journey that has unfolded.

Why are we telling you this? So that you can put life's trials into perspective. Rather than viewing them from a point of reference of failure or punishment you can see them for what they truly are. . . a part of the soul's journey.

Yes, we know you'd like it easier. Yes, there are certainly things that you can think, say, and do that will assist you in your life's journey. You already know and are doing many of these things.

First, we would ask you to take blame out of the journey. Whatever choice led to you to here and now was the choice that you made with the information and spiritual growth you had at the time. Release blame upon yourself and move forward into a greater sense of peace and joy.

Please let us off the hook of blame as well! We did not force sorrow, suffering or pain upon you as a sense of harm or punishment. Nor did Divine Source. Life and your soul's journey brought you to this place at this time and in this way so that you could learn, grow, and assist others on the path.

We delight in you and offer our assistance to bless you and encourage you. Bring this hope into your awareness and allow yourself to be blessed by our loving concern.

We walk with you - not against you. We hope you willingly walk with us on your spiritual journey to fulfillment and destiny.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Moments of Awareness

You walk through each day with moments of awareness. Good for you! This is all that is asked of you!

These moments of awareness bring forth brilliant light into the world. Your awareness is a beacon of energy that not only lights your own path, but lights the path for others to see their own way. Your moments of awareness ignite within you a brilliance that illuminates your journey. When others see this illumination, their own spark ignites, and their journey becomes awakened as well.

You may feel as if you have been detoured or you are just trudging along. Truth is, every step is sacred. Even the difficult moments along your path have great blessings for you. . . when you enter an awakened state and notice beyond the drudgery.

This noticing while in a state of expanded awareness grants you a higher level of serenity and peace. Meaning: stress, tension, worry, and dismay leave your mind and your physical body. You have more energy to do the things you choose to do. Even those things you thought were expectations and demands, slip gently into a more positive state of awakened participation. The deep life-draining weariness slips away.

Yes, the body will still tire - that's what it does. However, your inner being will awaken into an uplifted state of being that grants you more vitality and joy. This grants you the ability to "do" when that is appropriate and "rest" when that is the right thing to "do".

So, shine on with a renewed sense of intention to be in that state of awareness as often as possible. When you slip out of that state of being, just notice it and return.

We wait for you there.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Welcoming Blessed Energy

When you sit in prayer or meditation with uplifted hands (or hands on lap palm up) you access a greater connection for yourself. You access Divine Energy pouring down from the Heavenly Realms to bless you.

It's true that palms together over the heart is a traditional prayer stance. This wonderfully allows you to close off to the outside world and the outside distractions. The head bowed opens the back of the throat chakra to allow your spirit to speak to Divine Spirit with unspoken words. These are excellent things to do and practice.

Often in your busy world, you toss a prayer out as you are busy doing other things. These prayers are heard by Divine Spirit. Unfortunately, these prayers are not often heard by your own spirit. In the same way, you miss the answers presented by Divine Spirit to answer you or guide you.

Taking time - even a short time in closed prayer/Bowed Prayer, as time is relative only to your plane of thinking - allows your spirit an awakening within.

To ramp this up even further - if you are ready for the next step - open your heart by breathing and expanding your lungs and your consciousness. Tilt your head back just a bit (no neck injuries please! Just a small tilt!) and feel your throat chakra open - and your 3rd eye opens. Raise your arms palms up and open or rest your arms gently in your lap, palms up.

You will feel the loving energy pour down into you from Divine Spirit - Creator - Divine Source - All That Is - The One Who Is Love. This sacred energy wraps around you and through you. Welcome it. Be in this Welcoming way for several moments.

Any action you choose will thereby be blessed.

The key word here is choose. If you choose to do a thing, Divine Energy flows to you and through you into that task. Whatever that task. Both you and the task are blessed.

Should you obligate yourself out of fear or dread, this energy will not flow. Neither you nor your activities can receive this blessed energy. Not that Divine Source isn't willing, your heart-space intent of fear or drudgery has cut you off from that Divine Energy.

In any moment, you can step back into that openness, and willingness to receive. Stand (or sit) in the Welcoming and the energy will resume its flow. Your choice is a powerful thing.

We recommend a moment in Bowed Prayer followed by a moment of Welcoming.

This will bless you greatly.

Are you ready for this blessing? Are you ready to welcome it? It is your choice.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – The Ascension Path

The steps you take today, place you upon an ascension path. You are ascending. Even when you feel as if you are going backwards, this is merely the perception of your mind looking at your growth from a physical/material perspective.

If you feel as if you are going backwards, this is keen insight! Keen insight is a step forward spiritually! This insight means you know more now than you did just a little while ago. Each moment you are aware places your foot higher on the ascension plane.

We watch your ascension path and are honored to welcome you each step of the way. 

Baby steps allow a baby to learn to walk. Spiritual baby steps allow you the opportunity to learn to exist spiritually while walking a physical course. The goal here is not perfection, but rather perception.

What do you perceive in this moment when you notice yourself? Do you perceive only the physical vehicle and its pain and discomfort of living? Do you perceive your goals and dreams? Do you perceive your growth and progress?

Noticing yourself in this way - rather than in discounting and condemning yourself - allows you to ascend further than before. This noticing is wisdom.

With this wisdom, you can reach goals that otherwise would be unreachable. With this wisdom, doors open to assist you that otherwise would be closed.

Notice this wisdom - notice how it feels. This is the feeling of ascension. Follow that feeling and watch the world unfold for you!

Messages From The Ancient Ones – The Key to Joy

Your consciousness holds an active presence within the Universe. Your awakened awareness rests within the expansive knowing of All That Is. Your open mindfulness exists within and influences the world.

Each thought you generate contains an electrical charge. More repetition of the same thought sets up energy fields in your world. When one person's thought fields is in harmonic with another person's thought field, the collective energetic field expands. For good or for ill, the energetic field influences an energetic fields around itself. This is why hate leads to more hate. Love leads to more love. Gratitude leads to more gratitude. Joy leads to more joy.

If a joyful person holds a strong energy field for joy, it's nearly impossible to diminish this energetic field. So, too, it is nearly impossible to resist the influence of this energetic field. People become more joyful around other people who have set their energetic field in tune with joy. People willing to become joyful gravitate towards a person with a joy filled energetic field. Those unwilling to become joyful gravitate towards those without joy in their energetic field.

This may not seem to be a conscious choice, yet it is a choice and each person has the capacity to change should they become willing to do so ... or ask to be gifted with willingness to shift.

Joy begets joy. Joy expands joy.

So, how does one create or allow their energy field to fill with joy? Notice a blessing - any blessing - in your life right now and become glad about it. You may not experience giddy glee, but you've just shifted the energetic field within and around your body to the resonance of joy. The sun is shining and you can become glad about it. The night sky seems peaceful and you can become glad about it. You ate something that tasted good and you can become glad about it.

Again, be glad about any blessing. Notice any blessing with gladness. Whatever experience you may find yourself within, notice any blessing with gladness. Notice that, while you are noticing the blessing, that you become able to feel relief that the blessing exists for you. Notice that you feel more at ease. Notice that you begin to feel less burdened. Notice that you experience a brightening sensation around your eyes. Notice that you experience a more expansive awareness of your surroundings. Notice that you feel glad about this expansion in your awareness - even if your surroundings are less than ideal, you begin to feel glad that your awareness has expanded.

Then notice another blessing and repeat the gladness process we just shared with you.

Each time you notice a blessing with gladness, your energetic field shifts towards joy. Joy is the expanded version of gladness. Joy is your rightful state of being. Reclaim this right.

We await your return to joy filled awareness.
