Posts Tagged ‘New Year’

I began writing a post early this morning, but was having diffculty putting my thoughts down “on paper”, so took a break to check my e-mails. What is written below, was lovingly sent my way by the Universe. Understandings I’ve reached over the past year but was having difficulty putting into words to pass along. To make my life easier and to help bring these new thoughts along to all of you, I was provided with the post below. I DO NOT receive regular mails from this source, so was surprised to see it, but as we all know, we are always provided with what we need when the time is right. A wonderful New Year to all of you!

The physical world around us may feel intense and chaotic at times as life itself unfolds. What seemed impossible, what seemed unexpected, becomes miraculous. The key to walking through all is to remain fearless. Being fearless does not mean there is no fear; it means walking with unconditional love and acceptance calmly and peacefully in spite of fear.

Agitation arises, conflicts occur, however if we remain steadfast in our spirit truth we will not be swayed from the perpetual peace within us. Remember too that when we do invariably find ourselves in conflict, if we cooperate and co-create solutions rather than blame, peace and harmony will return quickly.

Anytime one expands and explores, it is unfamiliar, a new beginning, a new chapter full of the unknown. We must resist the ego’s desire to revert into the known and experience the expansion fully. If we allow the experience of expansion, we transform into a beautiful new reality. With all shifts, be it a small behavior or a critical mass shift in awareness, the appearance will always be that of chaos and destruction. The only way to make room for new is to let go of the old. The stabilization of reality comes from this transformation process. Expansion requires us to be patient and unconditionally loving and accepting always. Quick reaction rather than contemplative movement will create further imbalance within us. When we trust our own inner spiritual guidance and remain open to the energy of unconditional love and acceptance, we will find it permeates all things in our reality. It just takes time.

This expansion is not only for our personal awareness and for growth; the collective energy is shifting the global awareness and growth. The world is birthing a new reality just as we are. Each one of us must answer the call for ourselves. Each person’s spiritual truth must be declared with conviction. Our active participation is vital for our new reality to finish its birthing process.

As we move into this New Year, the temptation to retract and hide will pulsate strongly to constrain the masses in fear. While many have cut the constraints that bind, if we do not actively participate in the new higher frequency energies, the constraints will return. Active participation does not mean to jump off into the unknown, it means to consciously take one step at a time, always staying in the moment. We must remain balanced in all that we do. Self-discipline and self-mastery are vital to understanding the expansive nature of a new reality. Otherwise, we may become lost in the confusion and chaos. Clarity always comes from within.
The mindful contemplation of all things – this is where the active participation is birthed. When we act from this stillness, our spirit is guided by our truth.

Nothing will be forced, manipulated or cracked. It is a soft nudging, a gentle flow of energy as though we are floating down the stream of energy. Yes, there may appear to be rapids from the chaos. There may appear to be obstacles and rocks in our path, yet, if we will still our mind, we will find our spirit truth and return to the flow.

We must remain present in the moment, contemplate the sacredness of life, and maintain our balance within. It is within this call that we will find the freedom of life, the opportunities for expansion, and the miracles of spiritual growth.

May you have a blessed and expansive New Year and may there be peace in your body, mind and spirit!

Peace, Love and Sacred Journey,
