Hi, friends!

For any of you who read my last post, remember I said I’d get around to figuring out why I drew to me that unpleasant task of cleaning up my dog’s accident?

Well I did.  It was a message to myself that I’ve been surrounded by other people’s s**t lately.  Um hmmm.  Got it.  Point taken, Self.

So, I cleaned this mess up, but in general, I’ll let others handle their own messes.  Unless they ask for my help and then I will be honored to assist — while remaining energetically neutral, that is.

You know, it’s funny.  I was sort of getting it along the way . . .  I knew I wasn’t feeling great, physically or psychically.  I knew I was feeling energetically heavy — I did the clearing the other day (and I did some venting to a couple of friends and my dear husband).

But what a clear, unavoidable, smelly, messy, spot-on message the accident was!

You’ve gotta love it!  There’s brilliance there . . .

[My angels are standing around clapping and nodding at me for putting it all together for myself . . .  Thanks, angels!]

Okay, so I’m sitting here doing the “final analysis” on the dog s**t thing.  One part of me says, don’t leave people locked in the laundry room and stuff like this won’t happen . . .  no, that’s not quite it . . .

The angels tell me not to get drawn into other people’s dramas.  Stay separate from them.  Let other people learn as they’ll learn and if they ask for guidance, I’ll be glad to help.  Otherwise let them be.  Stay energetic separate.  Certainly, don’t follow people down the vibrational ladder — that’s not a bit helpful to me or to them.

Stay vibrationally uplifted by being in nature, by meditating, staying grounded (for me this often means vigorous yoga or dance) and consciously looking at the light and love that is inherently present in each person.

I confess I let myself forget that inherent light and love with a couple of people:  a snitty receptionist, a couple of Memphis drivers and a couple of other people.  A good reminder — I make my way back to A Course In Miracles work.  I will forgive myself and I will forgive them.  I will let go of the need to blame and to separate myself.  I will forgive the momentary lapse into dark seeing.

Welcome back light seeing!  Welcome back clarity and love!  Welcome back, Self!

Spreading the light of awareness!  Blessings of that light to you too!


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!

A question from a reader:  “Why do people feel they need to suffer so much?  Some people seem to hold the belief that if they’re not suffering each day, they’re not doing something right.  Why?”

When I begin working on this issue from an energetic perspective, all kinds of interesting things come up to be corrected and healed.  A big one is the false belief that the more you suffer, the more spiritual you are.  There are often religious and collective consciousness beliefs to be cleared.

Another big one can be past life karma.  For example, in a past life you’ve caused someone else to suffer or witnessed someone else suffering and didn’t do anything to help and now you feel you must suffer in this lifetime to make up for that.  You hold the energy that you deserve to suffer.

A separate caveat to that is the belief that if I suffer — if I’m a victim — then I’m not hurting someone else.  I’m not a victimizer.  There is often a past life connection here too — this person wants so much to do no harm that he or she takes on the victim role instead.

When I do energy healings around this, I always work both sides of it — how does the client feel about suffering and not suffering, being a victim and not being a victim.  I check things like responsibility, blame, forgiveness issues, memories, karma, trauma . . .

I like what Stuart Wilde says in Life Wasn’t Meant to Be a Struggle (I’m paraphrasing) — there is a difference between effort and struggle.  Yes, life requires some effort — just like a tiger chasing and attacking its prey — but the natural order of things is not struggle.  The tiger doesn’t find the attack a struggle, something that drains her.  She expends the energy and receives the reward from it.

Sometimes we get a caught up in the struggle of it.  And, it can be tempting to hang out with other people who are struggling and talk about how bad things are.  (Ooh, that can be a major energetic sink-hole — one that’s tough to climb out of . . .)  Sometimes, out of compassion, we may join people in the sink-hole even if we don’t really feel that way ourselves.  Although that may feel noble at the time, in fact there’s most likely a guilt piece that could be healed — how do you feel about doing well when someone else is suffering?

The quote from Marianne Williamson that I posted the other day alluded to this as well — kind of from the opposite perspective.  It doesn’t help someone else if we hold back our light — in fact, by shining our light as brightly as we can, it gives other people permission to seek their own brightness.

Our angels absolutely want to help us with this issue.  They say that our truest nature is one of bliss and joy, not despair.  They surround us with love and comfort and try to draw us out of that place of suffering into a place of perspective where we can see our earthly circumstances for what they really are.

They’d love to help us step out of struggle and suffering and into motivated effort.  What do we need to do to move our lives forward?  They’ll help us figure that out if we’re willing to step out of the suffering.  It’s a big step for some people — that mud is pretty deep and it’s even seeped into the rubber boots you’re wearing, creating a vacuum that’s going to take some effort to break.

Remember, though, you’re not a victim of the mud or the rubber boots — honey, you stepped in there yourself.  Let go of the blame and the freak-out and just muster up the effort to step out — at least wiggle your foot, preparing for the step.  Keep wiggling until you can move your foot and step out onto the dry bank.  It’s not far.  Motivated effort gives you strength — victim struggling makes you weak.

Visualize stepping out.  Imagine what it would feel like to step out.  Think about what you would do if you weren’t suffering and stuck.  Start to bring those feelings and images close to you and move toward that future for yourself.

If someone near you is reinforcing your suffering, please stop listening to them and begin listening to the little voice inside that says, “Yes, you can step up and out of this mess!  Yes, you can!”

Yes, you can.  Clear horizons are out there and they can be for you.

When you have someone in your life who is one suffering the angels advise you to keep your light shining brightly.  The source of that light is God/Universal Source Energy/Love/Higher Self, so you don’t need to generate the energy to keep it burning.  But, it’s crucial to connect to the source through prayer and meditation — otherwise you can get drained and burned out.

Try to remain separate from that person’s drama and suffering mentality — and shower them and yourself with love.  Ask the angels to remove any cords and attachments with this person that causes a feeling of draining.  Of course, the connections of love never get severed, just those draining, enmeshed energy connections.

Remember the Truth that you are loved.  You’re never alone, even for a moment, in that muddy place — there’s always a helping hand stretched out to help give you balance and strength.

Blessings for a future that is just as you envision it to be!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we
are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most
frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened
about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are
all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory
of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And
as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission
to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence
automatically liberates others.”

—-from A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson.
