Hi, dear friends!  Blessings to you as spring is upon us.

A lot of people I know are experiencing some intensity right now — either through emotions, physical condition, relationships, money, job or their spiritual path (of course, in the end, it’s all path . . .).  For some people it’s change and for some it’s worries of the future (and for almost everyone there are memories from the past that affect us).   For many there’s a feeling of standing on shaky ground — like anything could happen (and we’re afraid it will!).

The angels send you messages of spring cleaning as demonstrated by nature.  They remind us that  S P R I N G  has arrived!  That which we have longed for . . . waited for . . . endured winter for!

If any of you know the darling book “Ollie’s Ski Trip” by Elsa Beskow, you know of King Winter’s housekeeper Mrs. Thaw and what a mess she can make!  She, with her broom, whisking away the dingy snow, the half-composted leaves, the sand and gravel.  Yes, she cleans it up, but the process of cleaning up is no tidy matter.

The same is true for those things we want to clean up within ourselves.  Where do we have some dingy snow hiding in the cold, shady spots?  Where are there layers of dead, decaying leaves and mulch?  Where’s the dirt?  The filth?

Time to clean it out!

The angels ask us to look at the forces of nature and bring those methods within us.  Heavy winds are trademarks of spring time as the movements of cold air and warm air clash.

Can we find spots within us that are clashing — a new thought with an old belief?  Compassion with judgment?  Boundaries with service?  Those clashes hold the potential to bring about swift changes within us.

Sorting through these opposites, trying to integrate the new with the old, can leave us feeling ungrounded, desperately searching for something to cling onto.

The angels remind you the most stable thing to cling onto is your relationship with the divine.  Meditation, contemplation and prayer allow you to find that place of centeredness and peace.  From that place you can hear your guidance — you receive your next step.  From that place the pieces begin to fit together.  Those things that seemed opposite now melt together and greater clarity arrives.  Wisdom builds.  Perspective broadens.

And, when you connect in that place, the clean up happens — the winds of change blow through, cleaning out the corners, the cracks and crevices, behind, under, above and through.  You’re safe in the eye of the storm, though.  The recipient of the brilliance of change.

You’re safe and looked after.  Those things that need to be shaken up, are.

Don’t worry about being harmed.  You can bend but not break, regardless of what the outer appearances may be.  Your spirit continues to shine brightly — even more brightly as you remove the layers that no longer serve you.

Blessings to you as the spring gales come.

Hi, everyone!  It’s funny, I’m sitting here at my computer, getting ready to write a new post and instead of a topic, the angels gave me the title:  “From Out of The Depths”.  I wonder what they’ll say . . .  [giggle]

The angels say that they know that many of you are feeling like you’re in the depths — they’re saying like in the bottom of a pit or well and it’s feeling dark, damp and very uncomfortable and scary.  They want you to know that they are in there with you.  You’re not alone — you’re not alone in the dark.

Light is brilliantly shining from the angels and is illuminating the space where you are.  It may not seem like it.  It may seem completely dark and lonely to you right now.

They implore you to close your eyes, begin to breath deeply and calmly and to turn your attention inward.  Begin to fold the edges of your conscious perceptive field in and onto itself.  Let it begin to fall into itself.  Feel the sensation of falling (similar to how it feels as you begin to drift off to sleep, but hold onto your consciousness) and then maybe the feeling of rising.

You are in the hands of the divine in each moment of your life.  I love the image of sitting in the palm of God’s hand.  That’s where you are — and your angels surround you in this moment.

Can you find that place within yourself where you recognize this dark, damp pit to be an illusion, like a bad dream?  That you’re really, truly safe, warm and cuddled?  Can you begin to feel the swelling of your heart in recognition of your connection with the divine?

Your angels want to comfort you right now.  They want to guide you up and out of that dark, lonely place.  They want to shine their light on you so you can bask in that warmth and love.  They want to show you your truest essence — love and peace.

They also want you to realize that if this feels like the depths of a “dark night of the soul”, that they can help you with the transformation that comes from a time spent in the desert or in the darkness.  This temporary place of heavy darkness may be instrumental to an opening and expanding of your heart and mind.  It may be extremely healing to your soul (even while it’s challenging).  Remember that after the 40 days in the wilderness, Jesus was attended to by angels — you are too, my friends!  The angels are there to attend to you and this growth that is happening for you.

The surest way out of the depths is go inward, embrace silence and stillness and prepare for the little voice that will call you out.  Expect it, because it will come for you.  That will be your guidance — from your angels or ascended masters.  That will be your pathway out of the depths.

Friends, you are never alone!  The angels say it again and again — you are never alone.  You are never alone.  You are never alone.

They say some of you are hearing this like it’s just a pretty little thing to say, but you’re not letting the Truth and fullness of the message in.  They say your mind is blocking it from reaching your heart where you can emotionally respond to it.

However, they also assure you that when they speak, it’s a message for your heart and soul and although your intellect may judge and reject it, the message still gets through and that’s why the voice is small and quiet — it originates from the heart and soul space.  That is why you must make some time for meditation and contemplation — to gain practice on quieting the mind so you can hear your heart and soul messages.

That and they encourage you to ask for help — to not feel like you must do it all yourselves.  Their purpose and joy it to be of service to humanity and they eagerly wait for our invitation to take part in our lives.

Hear the angels calling you and let them lift you out of the depths and into the light!

My friends!  I’m hoping that soon I’ll be able to express the fullness of this angel message for you!  They assure me it’s not a lack of ability on my part, but that they’re giving me information for you (all of us) in layers, like a gorgeous layer cake.

Here’s the latest layer for you on the yoga / shavasana thread.  My last post was a look at the nature of death in the world around us right now.  And, yes, indeed there is death.  Someone dear to me just lost her job yesterday — and believe me, she’s feeling grief about the loss.  There’s anger, fear, worry, guilt, grief — all kinds of “composty” emotions.

Oh, the richness of that compost!  The *beauty* of the organic, life-giving material that these emotions will bring.  Of course, right now, she’s just feeling the death of it.  But, what’s coming is brilliance and beauty.

These things *must* fall (tears, fists, the Dow Jones).  They must compost.  They *will* bring about new growth.  And, that lovely spring green color will accompany it.  You know what green I’m talking about?  The color of the first shoots of daffodils and tulips?  Yes, it’s *that* green — that luscious, water-filled green — is coming!  It really is.  Now, it’s only February and being a northern girl by birth, nothing green is breaking the earth yet in “February”.  But, the life forces of the plants are beginning to shift their energies toward growing instead of sleeping.  Yes!  It’s coming!

Now the angels want to talk about the contrast between death and eternal life.  (Although this has an overt religeous sound, hang in with me — the angels are bringing you deep wisdom here.)  The divine spark of spirit that we all carry within us remains alive and vibrant even when the outward appearances seem dead.  It’s the outer vs. the inner.

The angels want to urge you to find that quiet, small space within you that is alive and bursting with fire and wisdom.  It is that wellspring of spirit that drives all of the outer.  It’s a challenge to reach deep within you when outer things are in chaos, but the angels assure you that they will meet you there.  They are always near you and they reach out to you, but you must meet them where it is quiet and all-knowing within yourself.

When you can get connected with that spirit place within you, you can begin to feel the eternal nature of yourself.  That deep peace and love that comes from the heavenly realms straight into your heart and soul.  The infinite love and acceptance that lifts you right up and out of your outer self and warms your face in its sun beam.

Once you can experience this feeling and Truth, you can begin to find some perspective about the outer events in your life.  Divine creativity and wisdom begins to grow within you, optimism replaces the pessimism and new options begin to present themselves to you.  Contentedness washes over you like a warm ocean wave.  Happiness replaces fear.

Eternity replaces death.

You are loved, dear ones — and you are eternal.  Blessings surround you today, even if they appear to be underground.

Okay, I suspect this will happen quite often on my blog.  The angels are calling me to add to my last post about finding your counter-pose.

They want to add some depth around what I wrote about shavasana.  Shavasana is more than just a relaxation pose — a total surrender to the integration of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual effects of the yoga practice.  In Sanskrit shavasana means “corpse pose”.

The angels want to remind us of that.  There are times of death.  There are big, massive deaths and there are mini deaths.  We experience them both within our lifetimes.

Right now there are many deaths happening — deaths of old ways of thinking.  Deaths of expectations.  Deaths of plans.  Deaths of companies and maybe even industries.

It may be a time of grieving the loss of the old — and it’s okay to do a bit of grieving.  That can be a very powerful and healing send-off.  (Try not to over-grieve, though; that can be an energetic sink-hole.)  Just as in shavasana, find a comfortable position and ease into the *feeling* of the death.  Let it swallow you up just like sinking into a warm bath.  It doesn’t have to be scary — you *can* welcome it.  Cry, wail, lament — whatever comes up, comes up.

But, please realize, the angels tell you, that rebirth is coming.  Spring is coming.  Those things that have died will be the composting material for the new.  It is the nature of things.  The turning of the wheel.  There is nothing to fear when a tulip dies out for the remainder of the summer and into the fall and winter.  Because you *know* that in the spring a beautiful flower will emerge again in its place.

The same is true for these things that are dying around us and within us.  Let’s send off those things — yes, maybe with a bit of grief and sadness — and sit in the quiet, still place of waiting and trusting.  Because, dear friends, rebirth is coming to us all!

The spirit remains even if the form is changed.  Surrender to the cycle, try not to control the outcome and be delighted by what spring brings to you.  It *will* be lovely.  It *will* be fragrant.

Focus on the new growth and not on the compost.  Appreciate the purpose of the compost — and of the death.
