Tools for Thriving
This blog starts a new series for 2016 on Tools for Thriving. We are bringing forth blessings from our allies to assist each of us to connect to the fountain of life and vitality that surrounds us all the time.
Give Your Seeking a Rest
Why is it that so often we don’t achieve the New Year’s resolutions we make at the beginning of each year?
It’s because our resolutions are often veiled demands on ourselves and the world around us. When we demand we stop the flow of life.
We are trained to take ourselves away from the rich mystery we actually live in. We think and believe in ways that block us from living and expressing from our deepest heartfelt desires.
What if some of our processes of affirmation, like meditation, yoga or prayers are getting in the way of thriving?
Sometimes even though a process seems so good, it’s actually a form of demanding on life.
The primary thriving tool we have found is that acceptance is the first law of spirit.
If we don’t accept what’s so, we create turbulence that keeps us stuck. We’ve all developed clever tools that hide our habit of demanding.
Ask yourself, “Am I in a place of acceptance or am I requiring that what is so be different?”
The only difference we can create is in how we perceive. From a clear point of perception we can take actions that can nurse greater ease, clarity and love.
A perception based on acceptance opens us to a battery of creativity in the life that is all around us and allows for real change, real evolution- Transformation not just stimulation.
Use this blessing as an invocation, a daily reminder, to let go of ideas that have tried to comfort us but actually hold us back from the very things we want and need.
Blessing- Give Your Seeking a Rest
This blessing is from our allies the Archangel Michael and the Christ Consciousness.
You have been trained to believe that what you think is darkness is the absence of light. So much of what you sense as darkness is in fact filled and vibrating with a radiance of light.
In the days before you, know this, there is a rain of guidance showering down upon you. If you give your seeking a rest, this fervent guidance will touch your mind, your heart and your body.
You have been trained to believe you are separate from the vast aliveness that life is, that you are. It is time now to end that illusion.
Before each of you is a fountain of life and vitality. You can be nourished in ways you long for by trusting that at times you will be afraid and other times you will have unbridled joy. Sometimes you may want to die. Sometimes you will want to fly.
Your life is a spectrum of experiences designed to grow you as a soul, an eternal being. We hold you in a resting pose invite you into the wild mystery that life is.
Now is the time for you to feel and know your unmistakable connection to the web of life that you are part of on this planet and to all the life that is beyond earth.
Yes- we are asking you to trust in ways you have not before because you are ready to.
How, you may ask?
When you feel yourself grasping, seeking the answer you believe you must have, STOP. Bring everything around you to a full stop. Notice in the stopping the stillness.
We your beloveds will meet you every time and usher forth to you the knowing that you need to reclaim your thriving no matter what the circumstances.
There is thriving in joy.
There is thriving even in sorrow.
There is thriving unto death.
Thriving is what you are, remember.
Brought forth in Love,
from David and Susan
Hear, hear. Yes, thank you. I have been so drawn to stillness recently. To just sit still, in the quiet and the dark. Thank you for this sweet reminder as to why. Hallelujah.
Spot on for me, Susan and David! Thank you! I have more trust in being, open and allowing answers or just great wisdom to flow through me. i seem to feel less tension in the space and grace of not knowing. Even a calm, as if being cradled in the stream, the flow.of life. Thank you!
Dearest beloveds, we join you in blissful, vibrant thriving. Although we miss your physical presence, we share the eternal lovespace with you. All our love is all ways with you! Karen & Walter
‘When you feel yourself grasping, seeking the answer you believe you must have, STOP. Bring everything around you to a full stop. Notice in the stopping the stillness.’ Only words of gratitude to you both today for being the voices of clarity amidst the din. Only gratitude – and a soft smile for you both – in this moment.
