The Jewish New Year and Another Golden Opportunity to

Get Yourself Out of the Shadow of the Past

This was originally posted in  2006 on my Mindfulness Journal but it is appropriate enough today to warrant a reblog here.

You don’t have to be Jewish to use this opportunity. It is simply another chance to journey within and see what we find, explore the inner workings of our soul and try and move forward into a new place. There will always be things which need to be questioned and challenged, and always new ways and opportunities to make profound changes which will help us move forward in our Sacred Contract, our reason for being here.

Let us all pray that we be granted the guidance, clarity and direction we need, as well as the wisdom to understand and perceive the blessings given to us, no matter what form or disguise they may take.

This would be a good time to take a minute and go back and check out the previous post on Living in the Shadow of the Past and the Power of Forgiveness and finding the ways to release all that is no longer necessary or healthy for us in the coming New Year. It would also be a wonderful time to begin doing the forgiveness exercise explained in the post for all those in your life who you still need to forgive. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to discard everything which we do not need to move forward in peace, tranquility, love, laughter and good health. Let’s move out of the Shadow of the Past into a beautiful, sunny and tranquil New Year.

I am now reading a book which I highly recommend to all by Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit and Sacred Contracts. Her latest book is called Invisible Acts of Power-Personal Choices That Create Miracles-quite amazing and highly recommended. I would like to end this post by sharing with you the following quote (pp.58) from the book since it gives amazing insights into many things we have discussed and opens doors to much further thought. If you already know these things, than think about them often. If this is the first time you are encountering these ideas, than think about them deeply and begin to question and contemplate. You will get much joy from understanding the ideas.

  • You are where you are supposed to be and in every moment there is an opportunity to seerve another or to receive support.
  • There are no such things as coincidences or accidents. Look for the meaning in your synchronistic encounters.
  • Any form of assistance you offer is an act of healing.
  • Anything you do for others, as well as the support you receive in your own life, has healing consequences for the whole human community.
  • You will always receive help within a second of a prayer. To recognize the help, you must see everything in your life from that second on as a part of the answer to your prayer.
  • Everything you do consciously is an invisible act of power.

SHANA TOVA TO ALL…A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Pray for the wisdom to embrace change with joy, gratitude and complete freedom from fear.

Butterfly Maiden Doreen Virtue Goddess Guidance Cards

Whenever we are going through difficult periods in our lives, whether physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually, we tend to loose our way and forget how to stay balanced and focused.  We forget how important acceptance and gratitude are…we find it difficult to experience these situations in complete acceptance, joy, gratitude and freedom from fear.  And it is precisely during these periods that these things are SO important to us if we are to move past the difficulties in the quickest, easiest and healthiest way.

Very often these periods are precursors of change

….And because change  is difficult and frightening (even if we are  unaware of it on a conscious level), we tend to resist it rather than embrace it and all its blessings.  So one of the first things we can do is pray for the wisdom to embrace change with joy, gratitude and complete freedom from fear.  Also remember that Change cannot be rushed or forced.  Things happen as they are meant to, when they are meant to, for our Higher Good.

Azure Doreen Virtue Angel Message Cards

Going through one such difficult period myself at the moment, this is precisely what I did during my meditation this morning.  I had gotten o the point of feeling desperation brought about by my inability to “fix” what was “wrong”.  The need to release – to surrender, and to accept was overwhelming by that point, but I still found it difficult to get to that place.

During the meditation, several comforting ideas came to me, and I was guided to do a card reading for myself for further clarification and wisdom.

Taking out my cards, I joyfully began my session.  During a session I usually pull three cards each from two separate decks which I enjoy using together.  Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Cards and Angel Message Cards.  While doing this, one card “jumped” out of each deck, and I knowingly put them aside to view at the end of the “regular” session.  The messages I received through these cards have given me the understanding needed to change my entire perspective of my current situation, and almost immediately I felt the feeling of complete release and surrender to God and the Universe.  LET GO AND LET GOD once again began to function properly in my life!!

The cards, including the two which jumped out, came in very special pairs, each pair bringing its own special message as to what and how.  You can take a better look at the “jumped” cards at the beginning of the post:  (They in themselves would have done the trick…I am always amazed at the way the Universe contrives to give us what we need-as long as we ask for assistance). Butterfly Maiden and Azure.  They go hand in hand and say it all.

The next two pairs I want to share with you come from the full regular reading:

Doreen Virtue Goddess Cards

This pair relates directly “feeling sorry for myself” place I found myself in and include the message of: “avoid complaining and indulging in negative thinking”, and of course, reminding me of my strength and my deserving the best in all things!  Magnificent.

The second set once again speaks of power, strength…and deals with something which I’ve also been avoiding the past several months…my abilities as a psychic and healer-mainly from a place of fear. The message includes the following words of wisdom to me:  “You are a strong and powerful lightworker, and God needs you to accept and reveal your power”.

 Doreen Virtue Angel Message Cards

All in all, very powerful messages.  IT is as if God and the Angels have reached out their hands and helped pull me out of the place I was stuck in….and then given me the tools I need to move forward once again.  I am so blessed!

We very often need assistance, and the simple act of asking/praying for it, brings to us all it is we need at the moment.   Praying for wisdom to understand the direction and guidance and the messages sent our way, is all it takes!!

I wish you all pleasant, flowing, stress free days, as well as the wisdom to release, to surrender, when necessary, and never forget to pray for assistance when the going gets rough

With much love light JOY and gratitude

LETTING GO

I have been going through a particularly difficult week for personal reasons and these times always test us.  They are sure indications of where we truly are in our life’s journey. They remove any pretense or pretension we may have about the progress we have made along our own journey.  They are truly blessings in disguise from an all wise and loving God and Universe.  I have been finding it difficult to be compassionate with myself and allow myself to be “weak”, to cry, to be afraid.  Today, I finally gave myself permission to feel whatever it is my soul needs to feel at this time, and asked the Angels for assistance in flowing with this decision.  And I was immediately guided to my collection of poems written over the years, and to this one in particular.  So it is mostly here for me, but am hoping it will bring some inspiration or personal message to others who read it as well.

with love light and JOY

Letting Go

Release anger,
Release fear,
Release Worry
Embrace love
Embrace faith
Embrace calm acceptance.

The river will take you swiftly along at certain points
And allow you periods of motionless calm
But the current will always be there to move your boat along
You may see places you would like to stop at
But the choice is not always yours
Release into the flow of the river
And calmly and joyfully accept whatever direction it takes you.

I have been honored by Yamyah, from Into The Heart  at http://crystalmoons.wordpress.com   who has lovingly nominated me for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  If you have not already met her, I highly recommend checking out her blog. It is inspirational and beautifully written, in addition to her amazing photo images.  It is truly a privileged to have been nominated by this lovely blue Angel of joy and peace. A big big thanks to you dear and to the God and the Universe for guiding to you.

In accepting this award, I must follow the 3 rules.

1.  Thank the person who nominated me.

2.  Share 7 things about myself.

3.  Pass the award to seven nominees.

So, here are the 7 random things about myself.

1.       My greatest joy and blessing during this sojourn on Earth is my family. My 6 amazing children and the extended family of additional sons and daughter-in-law they have brought me, and my 13 wonderful grandchildren ranging in age from 8 months to 18 years!

Me and My Kids – Five daughters, and one son-the “baby”

2.     I had the honor and privilege to meet Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo-the first Western woman to be ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist Nun.  This meeting resulted in a powerful but subtle shift in perception for me  leading to a “growth spurt” in my life’s journey. You can read about her amazing life story here:  Cave in the Snow

You can also find more information about her life’s work, her nunnery, at this website:  www.tenzinpalmo.com/

3.     I have three loving Guides who have been with me since birth (although I was forced to deny their existence on threat of punishment when I was 7 years old). I reunited with them in my 50’s through a deep meditation practice and they  have agreed to publicly reveal my pet names for them since childhood.  Kaki, Gee and Chuchibell!!

4.       I was blessed to have an audience with HH Dalai Lama in 2001, and the effects of that brief meeting are still rippling through my life to this very day.

5.       I love to play computer games rationalizing that they are good for my rapidly aging brain, but how much brain power do you need to play Bubbles?!?!?

6.       I love to dance and have been doing it in one way or another since the age of 2. For the past 35 years I have both taught and danced Israeli Folk Dancing-I currently dance 3 times  week, each session lasting about 4 hours.

7.       My one vanity is painting my fingernails!!

The seven blogs I have chosen to nominate, in no particular order are:

http://beyondthecall.wordpress.com

http://dhyanavibrations.wordpress.com

 http://heartwhispers.co.uk

http://momentumofjoy.wordpress.com

http://olea.wordpress.com

http://threedeelife.com

http://www.feelgoodtribe.com

I would have loved to have chosen more, this was a difficult job, but hopefully will do that at another time.  These blogs continually surprise me with the depth of their ideas, the scope of their interests and their ability to keep me constantly mindful and aware of each and every moment, and to be grateful for all the blessings showered upon me each and every day.  They bring great insight and JOY into my day, and hope  you will also find them of some sort of assistance along your own life’s journey.

With love light and JOY

The Importance of Requesting Angelic Assistance in All Things

 

Some of the Many Angel Feathers I've Received Over the Years

I have been working with angels for years now and have felt a deep connection to specific ones for a long time, using them in cleansing, protection, healing, asking for assistance and direction, etc. I never begin a day without asking for them to be with me, nor do I begin a healing session on myself, or anyone else, without also asking for their assistance, guidance and protection. I feel their presence with me always, with a particularly close, even physical sensation when I call upon Archangels Michael and Raphael.  Archangels Gabrielle and Uriel are also with me during my day.

A couple of days ago I received a new Kindle Touch and was playing with the wifi trying to see how it work, when a list of “recommended for you” books turned up.  I was able to download samples of the ones I chose, and chose “randomly” from the 1500 or so books listed.  Once the samples found their way, instantaneously I must say, to my device, I began reading them.  And the first one, a sample from one of Doreen Virtue’s new books,  contained the message I needed:  reminding me that angels are loving beings, always there to serve us, but that they cannot interfere in our life.  We must REQUEST their angelic assistance in order for them to help us.  And apparently I have not been asking for enough angelic assistance lately.

And then of course we must be aware of their assistance, as subtle as it may be.  We receive messages in many ways- random posts we may read, coincidences (which are really synchronicities which are sent along to us as they are needed in our lives), a song on the radio, a scene in a movie and of course, finding feathers in unusual places or circumstances.  Finding such an angel feather, whether large and very small,  is a very clear physical message to us that the angels have heard our prayers, our requests for assistance, and that they are “working on it” at this very moment.  And of course, a “thank you” is in place here.

So, sending me this book sample is apparently their way of telling me that I need to know even more than I already do, (or perhaps to just confirm what I already know), and in some way make use of their love and guidance in even more ways.

More of My Lovely Angel Feathers

This morning, during my meditation, I began once again to turn to the angels.  I have spent the last couple of weeks in a sort of private retreat -and it has been extremely healing for me on many levels.  I have also had the time to leisurely take care of myself and my own needs.  But the time has come to begin getting back to the regular routine of life, and I realized that first of all I had fears about this, and also concerns about just how I will manage -how I will get back into the swing of things.  How will I still have time for this blog, for example(!).

I asked for guidance and direction from my Guides, as I always do, and of course the wisdom to hear and understand their messages.  But then I asked for angelic assistance in moving back into things in the easiest and gentlest possible way, and for doing so with Faith and complete freedom from fear.

I felt very much at peace after this meditation, as if a great weight had been lifted, and began the rest of my day with newfound joy and a sense of wellbeing.

When I opened my terrace door to take out my laundry, right at my feet was a lovely “angel feather“, just waiting for me, telling me that the angels had heard me and were “on it”.

Angel Feather I Found This Morning - These Small Ones are Particularly Powerful Messages that we have been Heard

Later on in the morning, while working on this post, I was guided towards a post written several years ago on my India Journal Blog-which simply said:

“This morning, while meditating, I felt an extremely powerful physical presence on my right side, which to me is always the place where I feel Archangel Michael’s presence. As he is the Archangel who, among other things, removes negativity and cleanses, the following message which I received makes perfect sense coming from him:

You are being completely cleansed in preparation for the next phase of your life. Be prepared for surprises!!!”

guess sometimes the angels feel like giving us a gentle reminder every now and then, about things we’ve been told in the past which apply today as well. Since I had already asked for help, this was one of the ways they came to help me almost instantly after my request.

I am so blessed

With love light and JOY

From this place of quiet contentment, this place of knowing and acceptance, the messages are always given the opportunity to find their way easily to my inner wisdom.

Clouds Over the Mountain-As they clear away, we have a clearer view of what lies behind them

I have always found this clarity of vision while in India, but it has alluded me this year while here at home.  Channeled messages are always part of my sojourns in India, so receiving the following message early this morning, brought great comfort and joy into my life-more on this following the message:

You no longer need to strive. You have moved beyond the place of having to put so much constant effort into your continuing journey. After many years of hard work, you have earned the privilege of sitting back and enjoying the ride. You only need to allow yourself to flow, without resistance, wherever the current takes you.

If you can relax into this flow it will always bring you to the place you need to be at the moment.  Not too early, not too late.  If you strive, and “work at it”, you will still get to the same places but you will find yourself pushing against the current very often, which will make the journey that much more difficult.  And after your efforts have exhausted you,  you will collapse-having used up all of your energies in resistance and in staying afloat.  And then once again, you will simply be forced to relax into the flow.

So stop striving – stop trying to “get there faster”. Let us move you along at the pace we know to be the best for you, in the direction which is correct at the moment.  We see the big picture, the overview, and know what hazards lie along the way (like a good GPS). If you let us, we will always keep you away from those hazards, even if makes the journey seem roundabout, or unnecessarily twisted and turning.

Continue to have FAITH in our wisdom and in our love for you. We will never steer you in the wrong direction.

You are truly loved.

And THIS is truly what I have been missing by not being in INDIA.

All of my “leaps” forward have occurred in India. Simply because I could allow myself to just “BE”, instead of always “DOING”.  And through the quiet of “being”, there was the tranquil place within me which was open to receive these loving messages.  I allowed place for the clouds to clear, letting me see with clarity what lies beyond.

The posts of the past couple of weeks have been expressions of a slowly dawning inner awareness – the clearing of the clouds so to speak-and it is now 4:30 AM and a true AHA! moment.

I am truly blessed.

If you are interested in seeing further messages received over the years, you can check out either of the following blogs and you will be taken to many posts with all types of messages – some received for me personally, and some received for other people through me.

Let Go and Let GOD – Accepting ALL Things as GOOD

Henry and the Missing Bridge Parable

Accept not only with complete Faith, but with love and gratitude knowing it is exactly what should have been. I have been professing things to be true for me for many years now but did I truly believe what I was saying? How would I react in a “tragedy” which struck home as close as possible…not just my loved ones but me directly. I always believed my cancer had been a positive thing in my life, but that was a lesson learned from hindsight. At the time it happened, I was bitter, angry , depressed, seeking blame and certainly not thanking God.

Recently some “thing” happened in my life, which was for me, a test. And it proved that I truly believe in what I have been professing. My whole reaction was also different than the way I  behaved towards tragedies in the past. I honestly felt no anger, even for a second…and did not even feel the need to find a culprit. Did not blame anyone, accept perhaps the split second when I thought I myself had been stupid, but it passed in about 5 minutes. I was calm, relaxed, accepting, knew what I had to do, continued to pray that I would be saved any hassle in the future because of what had happened.

I knew for a definite fact that this was a GOOD thing and I realized for the first time, totally and completely, that my faith in God and His Universe , His angels and my guides, the desires of my soul are all true to my Higher Good at every moment.  Nothing “bad” can EVER happen…I am deserving of ONLY good things and wonderful people in my life and all that happens IS for the best. I have never felt so at peace and thankful and loving and warm as I felt at that moment of realization. God has been wonderful enough to prove to me, to take away any shadow of a doubt I may have had about the workings of His Universe and my own faith and trust in it. It is truly the most wonderful blessing I have ever received. Knowing that my anger and need to find blame are something of the past and my complete acceptance, in happiness of events , is a joy I cannot find the words to express.

It all began with my readings of Kryon and my understanding of the overview, synchronicity, etc…that chains of events are set in motion long before the “thing” itself happens. In order to provide solutions to problems, or answers to prayers which we ourselves are not even yet aware that we will need. The parable of the guy racing towards the bridge which no longer exists but completely trusting that a solution will be in place when he arrives is one of my favorite Kryon parables and I always saw myself in that light.  If you want to delve further into the channelings of Kryon and get further information, you can check out the Kryon website.

Things just don’t happen, nothing is by chance, everything that occurs has a connection. I can go all the way back in time over many years and see connections of events leading to today and nothing which happened THEN made any sense to me.

I am including the following from a Kryon Channeling. If you choose to read it, you will be taken further along into the idea of Trust in God and the Universe…the ideas presented are not unique in any way, but the parable of the Missing Bridge is one of my favorite examples for understanding the concept of “Letting Go and Letting God”. Also note that the word “Spirit” is used frequently in these channelings, but God, Universe, Higher Source etc., could all be used just as easily…do not let semantics confuse you.

The first (thing to understand about trusting the Universe) is this: As you see and acknowledge the fact that the solution already exists even though you cannot see it, visualize the solution…. Now, this is important. Don’t visualize what you THINK you need to create the solution. Let that be your partner’s job (Spirit). Let US do that. If a human is going to run a race in the morning and wants to be one of the few who finishes, but doesn’t know how he is going to get through that exhausting hill or around that tight turn, he might pray to God about the tight turn and the exhausting hill. We’re here to say instead, he should be visualizing only passing easily over the finish line. Let US figure out about the exhausting hill and the tight turn. That’s our job.

Let us review for a moment the parable that was given to you regarding Henry and the Missing Bridge. Some of you will remember that this was a story about Henry who was speeding toward a bridge that he knew was out. Everything that Spirit said to him was, “Continue on, Henry. Things are not always as they seem, Henry. You will be taken care of, Henry.” The missing bridge was a metaphor for what human beings cannot fathom or see in the future that God has already taken care of. ….. For the solution to Henry’s problem of the missing bridge had already been taken care of. You can read that parable again, (Kryon Book 7- “Letters from Home”, pp. 226-229)

As Henry approached the area where the bridge was supposed to be, he opened his eyes and realized that it was still gone. His fear increased… it was the last moment! It took everything he had in him not to stop right there, yet Spirit said, “Henry, continue on, continue on.” So Henry in all his faith, continued on even faster than before, trusting God, and the partnership within. Just as he thought he was about to have his vehicle careen over the cliffs to a certain death in the valley below, he saw workmen on the road guiding him around to an area he had never seen before – an area completely out of sight that he had never, ever observed – hidden. And standing in full glory there was a beautiful new bridge! It was a bridge that was so big and so awesome that Henry realized that it had been under construction long before his need. He crossed it in ecstatic joy, realizing the power of his partnership with God.

Dear ones, this is the key to the parable. There are solutions … to problems you don’t even have yet! By the time you get around to asking Spirit for the solutions, they’ve already been built, you see…. already been built. It’s part of the balance. There HAVE TO BE solutions for the tests that you’ve agreed to… and there are.

Henry didn’t visualize how his bridge dilemma was going to be solved. The thought of a miracle bridge popping before him was silly. The thought was beyond his human reality. So instead, he simply visualized moving to the other side… the end result. The runner visualizes breaking the tape. Regarding your problem? Visualize it all taken care of and then leave the details to us… but YOU do the energy visualization… often!

The second attribute, therefore, is that “things are not always as they seem.” The answers may come in very shocking and unusual ways. Sometimes the miraculous energy will astound you. Sometimes the answers seem complex. In retrospect you might say, “long ago if person A hadn’t done this, and person B hadn’t done that… then my solution would never have been possible.” There is something in you that realizes that person A made his move BEFORE you ever needed it. How complex this was, you might say. How elegant and perfect! Not only that, but within your solution, no matter how complex the interaction is with others, somehow everyone seems to win! Dear ones. That’s the mark of a SPIRITUAL solution. Visualize, therefore, the solution as having been taken care of.

The third attribute is Don’t LIMIT GOD. You don’t know what we do. There are so many of you who are standing here asking for a bush when Spirit stands with …a whole forest (for you)! You don’t expect it since you don’t feel the self-worth of it. The solution to your little problem may contain the whole forest as a gift for you! Things that you don’t even know about yet will be solved within the solution of the one problem you have on your lap… perfect within the simplicity of the physics and love of Spirit, and the complexities of your humanism.

So let US do the work. That’s the overview of your partner (Spirit), the one you’re holding hands with. That’s the golden one in the golden chair – the one who knows everything about your potentials – about your contract – called the golden angel, or higher self. It has the energy of Spirit, yet it also has your name. Don’t limit Spirit.

LET GO AND LET GOD!!

with love light and JOY

Jane
