A question for the angels – What is darkness?

Hello Earth Angels

I have been pondering a question – what is the darkness? When we are seemingly in a hole? When things have closed down – a cycle of our lives finished  without signs as to where our next adventures lies – are we in the darkness?

The angels reply:

Darkness is an illusion. It is the shadow cast by your own light. You flow from light to darkness in order to find more of yourself, to express more of your being.

In the process of this journey you shed all that will no longer serve you on your journey. It feels like loss especially if you have attached yourself too strongly to these achievements. Some of the things you lose you will know you are ready for and they will go easily and with some relief. Others will hurt because you feel you are losing the best of you, or the part of you that is valuable to you. It is of course an aspect of the ego wishing to hold on.

Your heart and soul do not wish to hold still, they are on a journey of exploration through life and all human beings must all walk the ‘valley of death’ to the new pasture of life giving abundance that is the next part of your journey unfolding.

Darkness has many gifts to offer, but you will find that your friends and the world around you does not appreciate them fully. The reason for this is they are extremely personal gifts. It is in the darkness that our gifts develop and our understanding of ourselves grows. It is an inward journey and to fully experience it may mean separating from the world for a while.

Of course too much time in the darkness is not healthy and you need to keep a careful watch on your state of being.

Having said this darkness is a place where your fears hide; you face your aloneness and all-one-ness and you can become depressed especially if you deny your emotions of anger or hurt.

When you surface from this darkness, it is like coming out of the cave or being reborn into the world again and as a result you may be a little vulnerable; a little innocent, filled with sweetness and possibilities to create again in the world and see what your time of darkness can bring forth.

The key to being successful with this stage of your life is

  • to be gentle with the process
  • to allow yourself all the time you need
  • to connect fully with your intuition
  • to understand that others will try to stop you from taking this journey
  • shedding unnecessary baggage is part of the process
  • loneliness is possible
  • dark feelings are a sign you are getting to the new
  • this is a place of transition
  • this too will pass (as the Buddhists would say)
  • this is another ‘night of the soul’ – if it is attempted consciously it will surrender much wisdom to you
  • it will last as long as it must for you to understand all that is necessary for your next journey
  • these times of darkness announce new journeys in your life not just steps on the road

We hope these words have clarified this for you beloved.

Peace – How can I help create it in the world?

Hello Earth Angels

Tumultuous times call for courageous actions if we are to create a world that is peaceful and harmonious – how do we do that in our world of disharmony, war, inhumanity and fear?

I have for many years been of the opinion that peace begins within and that it is our personal mission to work and create peace at this level first as well as spending time, effort and energy working on the outside world.

As we move forward to the International Day of Peace (Wednesday 21 September) each year I take my individual ‘peace audit’. This is to see how peaceful I am being in the world. I do this because I am at the centre of change and while I may be able to influence people I cannot change them – but I can change me and so I start with myself.

If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.

Lao Tzu

Many years ago now I read these famous and often quoted words and thought what can I do?

And so began my personal ‘peace audit.’

In the aspects of my world – inner and outer I give myself a mark out of 10.

For each sector I ask

‘ How much peace do I feel with this part of my life?’

The sectors I question are:

1) intimate relationships

2) family and friends

3) career and colleagues

4) money, prosperity and assets

5) reputation and recognition

6) health, physical, mental and emotional

7) creative expression or time for hobbies and fulfilment

8) spiritual balance  – religion if you are part of one

9) community

Once I have got my marks out of 10 – I choose the one I scored the least in and ask the following:

‘What action can I take today and for the next month

to make an improvement to peace within me?’

Sometimes it may be as simple as breathe more deeply or get 8 hours sleep a day or smile more at my neighbours.

Sometimes it is about doing a project that will add value to the community I live in – like helping to create jobs, or making others aware for the need to smile more as an action we can take to create peace.

It also can mean joining or supporting an organisation that supports peace.

For those of you who do not know me well – I promote and support Peace x Peace. You can find out more about them here: www.peacexpeace.org

What are you doing to promote peace in your world?

Why not take the ‘peace-audit’ and see where that action takes you – your angels will prompt you to take the necessary action – be assured of that.

Birthing Ourselves in Love

Hello Earth Angels

I hope that you are well and filled with joy.

As I look around me (and at my own journey) I see many who are suffering and struggling in this moment – and so I finally remembered to ask the angels what is happening…

The Angels reply………

Dearest one

Firstly we admonish you lovingly – YOU ARE NOT ALONE… Everyone on Earth and much of the universe is focusing on the changes that are coming to Earth and her inhabitants.

We are here to help, to coach, to offer comfort, to be part of the cheering squad and the ‘mop-up-crew” when things get tense!

Everyone who is present at this time on earth put their hand up for the experience – and what an experience it is – the birthing of a new consciousness for you, your earth and the universe.

The impact of these shifts will reverberate around the Universe. It is very tense within you at present – and you are a little battle fatigued. It is ok to rest. To take time out… and it is especially helpful for you to go within yourself and be present with all the changes going on within you.

Each of you came to Earth at this time to experience the shift in consciousness through your key expression. Let us explain this.

  • If you are a physical person – into sports and lots of activity you will experience the shift through your body.You may get physical symptoms of imbalance – you may create physical accidents so that you can learn when to be still. You may have issues around your physical stamina and your main learning about this shift will come through your physical body. You will learn that you are more than your body. You are everything.
  • If you are a mental person – into education and thinking activities you will experience the shift through your mind.You may get mental symptoms of imbalance – you may create sever mental stress so that you can learn when to be still. You may have issues around your mental stamina and your main learning about this shift will come through your mental body. You will learn that you are more than your mind and your thinking. You are everything.
  • If you are an emotional person – into feeling and expressing yourself in emotional ways you will experience the shift through your emotions.You may get emotional symptoms of imbalance – you may create emotional crises so that you can learn when to be still , when to feel and release rather than hold on to the emotion You may have issues around your emotional stamina and your main learning about this shift will come through your emotional body. You will learn that you are more than your emotions. You are everything.

No matter your way to experience or express yourself during this shift you will find the changes begin in your comfort zone (one of those listed above) and spread to the shadow aspects of you (those above that you do not express) . This is because one cannot act outside of the wholeness of yourself for too long without a correction of energy.

You are here to experience LIFE through you … and ALL of you will be taking part even if some parts of you are more comfortable than others being ALIVE.

You are really in the process of birthing your true selves into the world. You are birthing the real and authentic you and doing it with the energy of all life – with love.

All that is not in the expression of true love is being released during this birthing process.

For women who know what childbirth is about.. you are in the unique position of birthing yourself and being birth helpers (if you so choose) to those who are unfamiliar with the ebb and flow of the process.

Women in childbirth know you do not keep pushing through every moment of labour. You push and then let go and stop, rest, regroup and get ready for the next contraction. You prepare yourself for the next step.

While you are in the birthing process it feels like it will never end, it will never get better and depending on your preparation and readiness to be a mother it can be a difficult experience. Always the choice is yours and this is true for this momentous time of consciousness as well.

Some may find the experience too overwhelming and leave before the whole birth process is complete. Others will leave because they have completed everything they set out to do and it is time to return home. All of you are on a journey to home. You are on the journey of coming home to yourself.

There is nothing to fear. In fact to fear is the worst thing you can do to yourselves as it will keep you in struggle, resistance and rebellion. The best action to take is to surrender unconditionally to the process.

You are here –  the changes will happen whether you will it or nay, so why not jump on the roller coaster and go for the ride of your life in radical trust?

Pass the controls over to your soul to manage – it is the part of you that knows what’s happening and can make the most of the experience for you. You will be fulfilled and happy in a way you have not been to date if you do.
