The past few weeks have been interesting. I was feeling less than joyful.
Each moment I used the tools that I have acquired to shift myself into something that felt better.
It wasn't always easy and I wish I could say that the change happened overnight-but it didn't. Sometimes I felt like crying out "what the f***k?!" I found myself saying "Come on guys-give me something to work with here!"
And their (The Group) response was "This is what you have to work with, you can do this." and so I did."
I used my Access Consciousness tools and a new inspired tool that they gave me, which involved working with my higher self and I reached out for help.
One morning, this week, I woke up and felt different-I felt happy. My car door needed fixing at a cost of $600 dollars and still I was happy. My son's van needed $900 worth of work, which he could not afford and so we paid the bill and I was still happy! Other news that might have put me into a tailspin, arrived and still I found myself happy.
And so today my life feels good even though nothing looks like it has changed, it feels different. The change in me occurred moment by moment as I delved into my "stuff", you know all the niggly s**t that pushes your buttons and came out the other side.
It is so simple to do when I remember to get out of my own way. I have no idea what I shifted as I worked but I clearly feel the results.
So, if you are reading this I want you to know that as you change, life changes. You are the only one with the power to change your perceptions which will change your world.
Try asking yourself these two questions as a beginnning point. "How does it get better?" and "What else is possible?"
If you want to delve deeper, reach out to someone who can help you into something different. Reach out to the encouragers in your life and stay away from the commiserators, unless you want to stay exactly where you are. Your choice, as it was mine. You get to choose. You have the power!
You are not broken. You do not need to be fixed. Everything you are is enough.
I can hear the cries of despair by some of you. But, what if this were true?
Everytime, without fail, when I am with someone during a session, I see who they are and I am in awe of their being. I see them in all their magnificence.
Now to be truthful, this happens because I am working with loving energies who see only that. I, like many of you, can struggle to maintain that view when I am out in the world. However, it is getting easier and easier if I allow myself to see underneath the masks of being human on planet earth.
What if under all your so called brokeness is the real you struggling to unearth the treasures that you be? What if you are more than you allowed yourself to believe and when you begin to believe that all of your world will begin to change.
Change isn't always easy if we want it to look a certain way. What if it could unfold effortlessly and easily? What if they way it ends up is even better? It takes a little trust, some patience and a willingness to keep asking for the change and following the energies that show up. If health is an issue, just the right thing will show up for you. If it is relationships you may find a way into a better one or a new one. Keep asking questions and here are two to get you started that are great for any situation whether good or bad. How does it get better? What else is possible? (Courtesy of Access Consciousness)
Make sure you don't shut the door on change because it might be just what you wanted even if it is in disguise.
Phillip Seymour Hoffman transitioned from our planet the. He was well regarded by his fellow actors. Most considered his life too short. Most thought that the way in which passed was sad. Most held judgments about his apparent addictions.
I am not one of them. I witnessed his skill as an actor. He may not have been an A List actor but he was a great actor. I know nothing about his private life. I choose believe that he experienced moments of love and joy.
However, none of knows the path that another walks. None of us can presume anything about that path, even when it may look similar to ours.
So the question that many ask; why does someone choose to shoot up heroin? Why does someone who appears successful choose that drug? Too soothe-it is plain and simple. Each of us has a behaviours that soothes us. Most of the time those behaviours are socially acceptable. In North America heroin is not.
But, thousand of people choose heroin as a soother and do not die. Some do but not all. So is a heroin overdose, simply a way in which to ease out of the physical being?
We live in a culture that believes that the only acceptable way to die is to be old, get sick and die. That we can get behind. There is seemingly no choice in that. But what if every opportunity that presents itself could be an exit point?
People survive horrific accidents with nary a scratch and others fall down a flight of stairs and bang their head the wrong way and they are gone.
What if these are merely exit points for us to choose whether we are done with this life or not? Has our soul experienced all that it came to experience?
We don't know. I don't know, but I believe that is how it is.
But, I love what if questions. I observe life and wonder about the what ifs. What if someone visited in the precise moment and consequently saved a person from a potential overdose? If we are co-creating (which I believe we are) then this would likely happen if that was the path that was being walked.
The Group has walked me through these thoughts before and now.
Life on planet earth is a grand adventure and adventuring has many forms. There are so many experiences to be had that expand the expression of who you be. We hold no judgment about any of it. There are many ways to get home from where you are and they are as varied as the souls that walk your planet with you. When you return into non-physical you are greeted with love-unconditional love and joy. There is not judgment.
You do enough of that for yourselves on planet earth. But when you look back on your life, from a non-physical perspective and feel it your life, you then have a knowing about yourself as a entity that experienced life on planet earth. Some of those experiences will have been complete and you will have no need to revisit them again and some are incomplete and you will choose to play once again in order to complete what you set out to experience.
At the core of it is love. What do you do if all you are is love? What do you do when you forget that you are encoded with that?
So many ways to experience and express being physical and none of it is wrong or right. Those are your terms. We merely see it as love or not love. Joy or not joy and that dear ones is how you will see it from our perspective.
One day we will meet again-those that love you from afar and yet so very close. Each of you has your teamates that cheer you onward and whisper encouragements in your ears. Each of you is never alone. There are angels-beings of immense light that surround you in your darkest hours and there are angels on earth that find their way to you to offer support and love.
The only question we have is will you allow yourself to receive all of that?
In joy we say so long, farewell, until next time dear ones. Remember that each of you are magnificent beings of light and love-period. No ands, ifs or buts.

So many people live their lives feeling like they don’t have the support they need.
What if you had it all along but you weren’t willing to receive what you need and you were afraid to ask for help?
I don’t know about you, but I was raised to be strong and self reliant. Don’t get me wrong, this is a good thing, but, the flip side is that I find it hard to ask for help, even when I need it. I may be cute but I am not always so bright!
Recently I have been allowing life to support me and asking for help. We are not meant to do this life alone. We have people in our life for a reason, sometimes we don’t even know them personally. Sometimes, they are there when you need them.
I started writing this post earlier today before I heard of the tragedy in Boston. So many people living out their dreams, pulling on everything they had to run that iconic marathon and without notice their world was changed forever. Whether they were in the midst of the chaos or not their lives were changed.
In their hour of need, strangers and family were there to support them and all they had to do was accept. It is easier to accept help when you are in the midst of tragedy and less so in our day to day lives. So, there was an opening of hearts that occurred today in Boston and around the country.
My wish is that the hearts stay open and do not shut down in fear of the what ifs. Fear is a dangerous thing to carry around. It shuts us down physically and emotionally whether it is personal to us or to a country. Living in fear is worse than what happens, whether it be Boston’s tragedy, 911 or closer to home. It is the what ifs that can stick us and stop us from moving forward.
But, what if, (smile) your life could change in a heartbeat and the sun shone, the birds sung and love prevailed. What if anything was possible, the good stuff?
The Group, who inspires me in my writing, when I let them, tells me that this is our best course of action. Focus on the love on our planet. There is far more of it than anything else, even in the chaos, most especially in the chaos. That is when our very essences rises up to the occasion. We have no time to think. Our hearts expand.
It is our thinking afterwards that gets us into trouble, the what ifs of the not so great kind.
Life on planet earth is full of different experiences and we are the only ones who can choose what they mean to us. We can choose love or we can choose fear.
I know what I choose. I refuse to be imprisoned in fear that is not of my making and so the only alternative open to me is love.
What about you? Will you choose love, over and over and over?
Will you share this writing and perhaps encourage another to choose love too?
It is a choice to stay in love.
