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.
