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.

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.

Time for our authentic selves – what does that mean?

Hello Earth Angels

Today I spent time at a favourite blog of mine. The Art of Collecting Yourself by Rae Payne.   http://collectingyourself.wordpress.com

Rae’s blog was entitled Making Time for Making Art and here is my reply:

Oh Rae! This post was surely heaven-sent?

Yes it is time for us all to connect with what is totally and real -ly authentic within us… to listen to the ‘creative’ voice and give it expression for its own sake not because it will help our ego be recognised but simply because without giving it voice, right here and right now we will suffocate a little every day until our life becomes so inauthentic as to be a mask of ourselves.

As someone who has spent a lot of time justifying how and why I spend time with my talents – it is finally and absolutely liberating to be able to say:

I spend time with my creativity because I need to for my spirit.

I need to do this so:

  • I can breathe
  • have a life and generally be here.
  • I no longer have to apologise for doing this.
  • I am not being selfish I am expressing me.
  • I do not have to put my creativity aside or channel it into forms that are designed to help others.
  • I do not have to put others needs before me own.
  • I do not have to do everything else before I am allowed to spend time with my creative self.
  • I do not have to be ‘successful, earn an income, or be in the world’ to be my authentic self, I simply have to express me. 

So today I declare and choose my authentic creative expressive self first about all other things because when I do this I am

  • caring deeply for my soul
  • nurturing the deep void of my being, the darkness where my soul seed sits to germinate and bloom into my magnificent self.
  • feeding the part of me that has been so starved it has chosen to take in food to fulfill itself – and wondered why with this in appropriate substance it is always hungry.

It is a wonderful, magnificent thing to accept what it is that I came to do and do it with complete abandon and delight.

Yes Rae, you are so right – it is time!

The deepest question..

Hello Earth Angels

Here are some words the angels asked me to share with you……..

 

In the roots of my being lives the oldest woman – knarled and withered, corpulent and wrinkled, she is timeless and eternal. Some would call her Crone. But this is not truly her – for she is before crone she’s as old as Earth herself. All goddesses sprout from her being she is patient, unconditional love.

Wisdom is her gift and knowing her reason.All of earth are born from her and all must return.

She and I sit and nameless, wordless, energies pass between us. Her eyes dark sparkling jets in her wrinkled overly round face. She misses nothing, judges naught and knows all. She is content I have come to spend time with her. As though from deep within herself, she brings forth a voice to speak…

 

“So daughter of my spleen, you finally visit me.”

I nod mutely.

“You seek what life has not divulged to you. You seek truth. You seek answers. You have searched the globe in time and space and now come to within. All must come to within, beloved daughter. Nowhere else does the answer you seek, sit. I see you have let go of all the tools you found on your path that you thought would help you. You have let go enthusiasm, persistence, focus, intention” she paused.

“You have even let go love, the hardest for you I know and now you are here. And here is where you give up your all. You give up knowing and wisdom – you surrender all of you that is prostrate, supplicant, all aspects of ego, laid aside. Beauty, kindness, caring for others and for self – these too are put aside.

 

To discover what, you ask?

 

Consciousness?  God?  The penultimate?

 

No beloved, even these must be put away here. Your journey is not complete. Yet you come to here because there is no other road you can take. This is where you meet yourself.

 

The mirror is a smokescreen – you exist yet you exist not!

In each moment you may express from your being whatever your wish or whatever feels to emanate from you. It is not yours and you are not it, you are the vessel, the carrier, the empty conduit.

Everything you think, feel, see and sense that comes through you

is IT flowing through you. What is IT?

It is life beloved.

Accept this as your knowing and be in peace. You will know no more than this. You will experience no more than this.”

“I understand this!” I cry in frustration. “But how does life have value anymore? How do I interact with it? How do I enjoy it?”

 

“Life IS IT, beloved daughter. Life plays through you and takes you on a journey. You thought it was Love, but you have had to let go of love and your perfected ideals of what love is and all you are  left with is Life.

 Life is IT!

You are moved on the pathway that already is. You are moved through life because LIFE is and IT lives through you. You will be gone in this form when you breathe your last breath.

To engage in life allow yourself to accept all that life offers you. Don’t fight life. Enjoy ALL experiences, do not label them or judge them – whatever the experiences, good, bad, indifferent or boring. Live your life from your deepest root. When you do this all that happens to you. Before you and through you can be viewed as a moving picture, an entertainment for you to experience.

Feel blessed by this and truly fulfilled by it.

Allow yourself to enjoy life and you will see it then as the miracle it is. 

Life is the miracle.

 Everything you see, want or think you desire is an expression of that miracle. When you understand the miracle there is only being –ness and peace will follow. Life will play through you and create tasks and experiences for you to take part in. Do them with as much joy and happiness as you can muster. Give thanks for the tasks.

Be in gratitude that Life still ‘sees fit’ to come through you in this form. Then you will have found what you seek.”

 She rested her chin on her ample chest and closed her eyes, as though the effort to speak with me had worn her out. But of course this was not true. It was the ‘IT” that had come through her to speak with me.

It was Life. It is Life. Life is IT.

 

I rose from the root of my being and began my day.  Life coming through me. This is why we are human be-ings – when we be we allow IT (life) to come through us.

 

 

I am life.

Life is me.

Life is IT.

Feelings and thoughts

Calmed into a

Deep sea of

Stillness

Settled on the inside

Still on the outside

Life.

A New way of looking at a familiar parable.

Hello Earth Angels

I had a ‘visit’ this week from Archangel Raphael.

Here is the  gist of what happened:-

Archangel Raphael asks: ‘Please retell the parable of the Prodigal Son with your new understanding.’

 Melody replies: Now I was a bit surprised by this instruction because I am not a big reader of the Bible on a daily basis – but I do know the story of the Prodigal Son and so I thought on this as I prepared my breakfast… thinking what is it that this story is telling us…

 

Traditionally the story tells us that the Prodigal Son goes off with instructions from his Father and gets waylaid by his own wayward sense of adventure and does not complete his Father’s instructions, in fact disobeys them. When he finally does return to his home – his Father accepts him back into the fold without recrimination or judgment. He treats him only with love.

 

So how does this parable work for those of us who are not following the Christian tradition?

This is what I would like to share with you – as I shared with Archangel Raphael yesterday…

 We are the Father of our own being. To re – member ourselves as love means to accept the return of all our prodigals sons, those parts of ourselves we have judged and found unworthy, for they are wandering in the wilderness wishing to come home to us, not in pain but in the knowledge of how miraculous love is.

Accepting all of our self is the

ultimate love we can offer the world.

If we are everything we see – as in if the world is our mirror –  then we are the terrorist, murderer and rapist, the conman and the beauty queen, the philanthropist and the beggar.

We are all of whatever we have labelled and judged. Our sense of what is right and wrong is what stops us from accepting all. We have categorised and elevated some things over others and what we see as wrong we have rejected and sent out to the wilderness. It is time for us to recall these parts of ourselves and be whole. Oneness is the beingness of love and balance and it happens to the individual and the world follows suit.

 If your world is showing you division and distress then it is a reflection of your inner world.

 Archangel Raphael  smiled with great love  “Yes beloved, So how would you heal this?

Melody replies:

1) I would start by writing a list of all of the opposites of what I think I am – for these would be my shadow selves and parts of me I have rejected.

2) Then in meditation –  I would invite all parts of myself to the table of love – for example – Invite in my fearful self, my sad self, my hurt self

3) And then I would explain that they are all loved and tell them they are loved for themselves and the understanding they bring and that they do not need to be in the wilderness anymore – but are now in the mansions of me – their (father or mother)

 

Archangel Raphael speaks:

Very well done Melody!  Do this and let others know how this is to be done.

 Melody advises some tips for the exercise:

1)Do not go too fast with this exercise – you may need a few attempts at is because of course when you integrate the aspects that you have rejected you may feel the pain of rejection on  the physical body as an ache – so do not do too many integrations that will make you feel uncomfortable.

2)Take plenty of water,

3) be gentle and use emergency essences if you feel uncomfortable.

4) Know there will be tears of release and you may also need to sleep as well.

 What outcomes have I noticed by doing this exercise?

 

  • A deeper peace and feeling of connectedness
  • A clearer view of my current situation
  • A willingness to be present rather than in anxiety

Do I think it is worth doing? 

Absolutely.

If you are interested to let me know how you get on with this exercise then please email me at: creativesoulcafe.angels@gmail.com or leave a message on this blog.
