Remembering The Plan

It has once again been quite a while since I sat to write. No excuses this time. I just haven’t felt the need to express my feelings to the world. It is after 7pm where I am now, and not usually a time I would focus on writing, but things can change in a moment.

I found some of my writings from the past year or two and decided to read through them. Just to see what has changed in the physical and the mind. I came across a question I had asked of my spiritual team. As I read the page, my emotions welled up and began to overflow. Things have a way of arriving just when you need them, and today is one of those days.

I would like to share the question and answer that came through and hope that it, in some way, helps those that need it at this moment in time.

What to do?

“Be guided by the darkness that surrounds you, allow it to run its course and be released. This darkness is a necessary step for you. When you work through what the darkness gives you, then you will emerge into the light. This is a time of enormous change for you, but you already know this. Why do you resist the changes?

You understand that they are required and you understand that it must be so in order for you to grow. Fighting against the lesson only serves to slow things down and there your frustration begins to grow. If you relax and allow then the frustration will lift, as will the darkness. You know this to be so, so do not resist.

Look deep within the darkness that surrounds you, for within it are the answers to your new beginning. This has been planned by you for this moment in your time, from before your conception and birth into this incarnation. You are now at the point of this life where things become much more meaningful and deeper for you.

Your purpose, your entire reason for being is now underway and yet you still resist. The pain of this transformation is intense, we understand this, but you are strong enough to succeed. You asked for it to be this way, as it is the only way you understood your human existence, could and would, know it for what it is.

Step aside from the human standpoint for just one moment and know this to be true. You are meant to be where you are. We understand that it is unpleasant to your human self, but your spiritual self looks forward to the challenge and the growth that will occur. From this perspective, this is one of many lessons you have chosen for this lifetime and you have succeeded in all the rest, have you not?

Why should this experience be any different? What you learn from this experience, as an experience is all that it is, will help your human side to deal with things much more easily. Each time you come to a crossroads and a turning point, a new road, a change in dimension and level of planetary change you shall resist less. Be aware that although there is pain and anger and frustration that these are human emotions and not worthy of elongating the experience.

The more you understand this the more you can trust that your spiritual core knows what is happening and it is doing, and understand completely that this is important at this time. Understand that this is so necessary now, be grateful for this experience of the darkness, as once your emerge into the light, the darkness shall vanish forever.

This is your final hurdle to the experience of true light living. Once you are there, your human side will wonder why you worried so. All falls into place in a perfect scenario of steps and movement. Be still and listen to what is inside you, your core central truth of who you are, knows this truth and it is time for you to release it into your physical surroundings.

Your purpose is to shine the light on the darkness. This is a beautiful and cleansing experience. Your presence is till required on this plane, there is no other choice than to be who and what you are. You stifle and block from fear of your power. We ask that you unleash your powerful true being and shine the light upon the darkness of this world, for it is sorely needed.

This moment in your incarnation is important in many ways for you, and for those around you and indeed for the world in which you are physical. Many are following your journey, some ahead, some behind and all guide each other along the way.

We are here to assist you as you ask, we are to guide as needed, we are here to just be within your essence. To bask in the journey that you so bravely have undertaken. Be strong, be brave, be whole and be heartened by the fact that your journey through treacherous waters is nearing it’s end. You will emerge, dear one, into the light of knowledge and joy. Safe in the knowing that all is worth the effort and what you have learned you are to share and to guide others who so fear the darkness.

Your journey has been hard, this we acknowledge, but again you knew from the beginning that it would not be easy and that is why you chose this body and this lifetime.

Remember you are loved immensely and we are always here behind you, in front of you and beside you. Protecting and shielding and guiding. Remember you are love and as such a most spectacular and beautiful part of the essence of soul.”

It seems I once again forgot my journey and allowed the fear to overtake it. Rereading these words has spurred me to once again take steps to live my purpose. I hope it moves you enough to do the same.

The Essence Of Life

Wow it has been a while. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

Since I last wrote I have spent time getting to know my first grandchild. The time spent with him helped me to understand things about my own life in a completely different way.

The innocence of a child makes you re evaluate how you feel about almost everything in your own life. He helped me remember what it is like to see something for the first time, to experience the joy of achieving something for the first time and to see everything without fear.

Watching him learn to move independently, to see the joy on his face when music moved him, and the happiness when he saw me first thing in the morning, was without doubt the most incredible experience. Something I had not felt since my own children were born.

You forget as they grow older what it felt like when they were small and just learning to make their own way in this world. My grandson brought  those memories back with waves of emotion that shook me to my core. When you have your own children you think that nothing will ever make you feel that love again. When you meet your grandchild for the first time and start to get to know them, all that love pours back into your heart and soul.

Just sitting here writing these words, the emotions are so strong that I have tears. I had forgotten what true love felt like. What a world this would be if everyone could feel this beautiful emotional response all the time. Far too many of us keep these emotions bottled up, afraid to let it out, afraid for it to be rejected, closed off to the very basic essence of life.

It has taken some time for all these emotions to settle, my world has been changed forever. I look at the photos I have of him and smile to myself, what has this child done to me? I had closed off my heart for so long, it was cold and it was empty. Now once again it is full and overflowing.

I understand not everyone can have children or grandchildren, but for every one of us there is something that can trigger this deep love. One thing that reaches out to our hearts and in an instant transform us from fear to love.

You will know when you find yours, it will wash over you with a power that you have no control over. Every molecule of your body will respond and in that moment your life will transform. You will look at everything with new eyes, with renewed hope and with love. Everything will change in that one instance of recognition and you will never be the same again.

Every moment is a choice, every moment you have the means in which to transform your reality. Every moment you can choose to allow love in or keep it out. Every moment you can take the hard road or the easy road. Every moment your reality changes, every moment! Every decision you make changes your path.

Choose the one that moves your heart, choose the one that triggers the feelings of lightness, of hope and of expectation. Choose the one that brings tears of joy, the one that makes you stop and go wow.

Birth And Rebirth

Just when you think that the world is such a horrible place and there is no way you could ever be up and positive again, something beautiful happens.

This past week my first grandchild was born. The joy that this wonderful little boy has brought to my life is amazing. Where before I was down and almost ready to give up, hence no blog post last week 😦 , now I am more uplifted and feel joy every time I look at a photo of him.

He unfortunately lives a two hour plane flight away from me, so I have yet to see him face to face and hold him. So for now until I can afford to go up and see him I have to make do with photos and skype sessions.

The energy that this child has raised within my life is so special. I am amazed at how precious and beautiful he is and how my son and daughter in law have made this wonderful creature. You tend to forget what it is like when your own children are grown. so seeing the peaceful little face while he sleeps brings back so many memories of when my own boys were born.

I am sitting here with emotional tears of joy falling down my face as I write. I was reminded the other day by one of my other sons, that now I am a Grandmother I am officially old. I have no problems with being old if if means I am to welcome more perfect beings like this one into my world.

This child represents a new beginning for me. the birth of something wonderful and fulfilling and the start of the second half of my life. As I add Grandmother to the list of who and what I am, it makes me sit and think more carefully about the life I have and the life I wish to live. How can I make sure that I am a special part of his life? How can i work it that I spend quality time with him? All these thoughts are flooding my mind and as I desperately search for the answers I need, I remember to relax and allow spirit and the universe to arrange things in their own natural way.

I am blessed to have such a special event occur in my life. It has taken many years before my little family was ready to grow and now was the perfect time for it to happen.

Always remember that when you feeling the lowest you think you could possibly go, that there will be something around you to raise you up again. Never, no matter how hard it is, allow the darkness to keep you from seeing the joy that can unfold. For it is always there and all it takes is for you to suspend the darkness for one instant and allow yourself to see another point of view.

Eclipsing The Darkness

So it seems the latest eclipse has shifted the energy somewhat. I have felt over the last few days a movement of sorts. A lightening up of my mood and what feels like a shift in the road I have been traveling on for the last few years.

I had read earlier last week that the eclipse was the final hurdle to leaving 2016 behind, and for me it seems to be true. I have felt the strangeness, almost, of this new energy and it has an underlying sense of happiness and joy within it. I feel much more inclined to smile than scowl and things have not upset me as much as they have over the last two years.

It is like a gate or a door has opened and the future is shining brightly beyond. All it takes is a simple step to move forward into this newness and accept the new path that is opening before me. This new vibration of lightness is so very strange to me. After living through the darkness of the preceding couple of years, it makes me feel a bit wary. Is it going to last? Is it real what I am feeling? Will I be disappointed again?

It is almost like I am needing proof before I venture beyond the door. The fear of being swept back into the darkness is outweighing the joy that this energy is emitting. While I want to trust that this truly is a new beginning, past experience has me hesitating on the brink.

I am being offered what I have waited for. The opportunities are now before me and yet there is a sense of trepidation. If I run through the open door and fall flat on my face, will I retreat so far back into the darkness that I may never again find the light? What I must and will do, is take that first step and keep going. I cannot and will not allow this opportunity to pass me by. This is the chance for a whole new beginning, a chance to start again on a new path, with new people in a new direction.

Do you feel it? Do you understand what we are being offered here? We must at this time embrace the light that has speared through the darkness. To show us the way out of the depths of unhappiness and misery that we have, honestly, drawn to ourselves out of fear. We know we manifest our reality, we know that what we ask for, good or bad, arrives. Yet we still hesitate.

As the final door closes on the last cycle of nine years, it is time for us to emerge, ready, willing and able to do what we need to do in order to progress. Starting with embracing the feeling of happiness that now permeates the air around us. I feel it, more and more every day. It is lighter, it is happier and it is so very welcomed.

With the lighter energy we tend to focus more upon the good things in our lives, rather than the bad. In turn we draw to ourselves the better things in life. More of what we want instead of what we don’t want. I for one, have focused far too often on what was wrong in my life, rather than feeling gratitude for what I did have in my life. This new vibration has shown me that there is a better way and that I am quite capable of finding it.

For now I will bask in the feelings of happiness and joy, that I had almost forgotten over the last cycle. Memories of good times will now outweigh the memories of the bad times. This is a moment of understanding that has been trying to pierce my mind for so long now, and finally I have recognised it. I sit here, laughing to myself at how good I actually feel, and wonder how I could have allowed the darkness and density of fear take over my life for so long.

I now remember that I am strong, I remember that I am capable. I remember that life is meant to be fun, and I remember that life is what I make it. The circumstances around me are my doing and it is up to me to ensure that my reactions and responses to those circumstances are positive and uplifting.

Do you remember the light? Do you remember how good we had it? Do you remember why we let it all slip away?

Will you join me in rediscovering the joy of life?

The Art Of Choosing.

When I look back over my life and the choices I have made, I wonder what on earth I was thinking at the time. Some have been great choices, some have been bad choices and some have been in the “what the hell, why not” category. Most have led me to where I am now, and although I sometimes complain about things, I do know that I am exactly where I am meant to be.

The lessons I have learned from the choices I have made have been huge. I am independent, mostly, and can tackle most things without worrying if they will turn out or not. But, there are times where I have made choices, and they were good choices, and I didn’t follow through with it all.

Why do we get ourselves to a point where we know what we want, how we want it and sometimes even how to get it and then just let it all slip away? Is it the thrill of the wanting, but the actual getting is not important? Is it fear of the actual getting? Why would we be scared of getting what we hope and dream for?

My hopes and dreams are all written down in lists. Multiple lists. I have lists for everything. They all sit neatly in a pile of exercise books and collect dust. I write them down and get all excited about the possibilities, then put the book away and promptly forget all about it.

I choose to choose but do not choose to reach. I choose to choose but do not choose to try. I choose for the sake of choosing. Then I choose not to proceed. My art of choosing needs serious updating.

So how to get from the choosing to the reaching and succeeding. Do I have to force myself to watch every moment to make sure I am not forgetting my chosen choice? That will only make the choice something that I will end up despising at most or a chore at the least.

For me, at this time in my life, focus is going to be very important. I have always flitted from one thing to another. Always chasing the elusive something that will make everything perfect, and in doing that missing all the important small stuff that goes on around me.

So now I am going to throw out the lists, all of them. They only serve to remind me of the failures and the lost opportunities that I have let slip through my fingers. Then I am going to choose.

Happiness, joy, love and abundance.

That is the only choice I really need to make. When I succeed at allowing these into my life, then anything else will follow naturally. No pushing, no fighting, no chores and no lists required. It’s all there, all I have to do is accept it all. Allow them to enter my life and ask them to stay. Simple.

Life does not need to be a big dramatic series of events. It merely needs to be allowed to flow. It needs to be. When you wake in the morning let your first words to yourself be words of encouragement, words of happiness and words of expectation of all that you can be.

What will you choose today?

Margaret ❤
