I was journaling about time the other day and decided it would be worth sharing with you, my friends. We have so many clichés about “time” how we “spend” it; how we measure and label it as “I had a great time,” or “I can’t wait until…” or “It was waste of time,” or “It’s about time you got here!”
I laugh at myself and my creative ideas that get me into such trouble—and bring me such joy. I guess you could say I defy time itself, ignore it, allow it to spin around me without regard to measuring it or allowing it to define me and my ideas. This is what amazes people who see my large mosaics and hand-hooked rugs. They could never imagine doing something so “time-consuming“. And yet, my Tarot mosaics were a year’s worth of work and each day I rejoice in the inspiration that drove me to create them. My Symbol’s rug took almost two years, as did the Fire Ceremony rug. And yet, I created them laughing in the face of time. Now here I am almost 80 years on this planet, and I’m still laughing in the face of time.
I wonder how much time I’ve spent writing everyday in my journals—or how much time I’ve spent playing over 1000 games of Spider Solitaire. I’m told the journal writing is good–but I feel guilty about the “time spent” playing Solitaire games. Preprogramed ideas about time.
It’s funny how we say, “Spend time…” like it’s cash we’ve earned and can spend anyway we please. And yet, time is a form of cash from the Source to spend in any way we choose–without judgment or preconceived ideas. The “gift of time” again comes to mind. Although time can be illusive in seeming to either speed up or slow down—for me it always goes too fast. I can get lost in another dimension of “no time” and wake up to discover I’ve “lost time.” Any artist can verify that, but especially a channel like me. When I channel Raphael, even in a light trance, I leave time and enter a no-time-zone. I’ve finally figured out to take care of business before a reading—not afterward—as I am slow to come back into “now time.” I’ve already learned to set the timer in front of my client to let them choose how much “time” they wish to spend—literally.
And so, dear friends, I shall go into the no-time zone and call upon Raphael for his words of wisdom on time.
Beloved Souls, we see you struggle with your everyday schedule of trying to fit so many things into your 24-hour day. For some of you, that day produces an amazing amount of accomplishments. And at other moments, you can feel bogged down, stuck, listless, without any energy to fill your time. We give you a secret–you are always on God’s Perfect Time–GPT. With the tides of energy swirling around you, pushing and pulling you from the nearest person to the farthest star, it can become a confusing mess. When you try to sort it out, to analyze it, to know “why”, you drain yet more of the divine energy always pulsing life into you. Let go of the puzzle and trust your soul and the divine plan set for your life. There is no such thing as time in this dimension. We do just fine without it. Can you trust that you cannot waste time, nor steal it? Can you trust that time is freely given by the Source of all Time? You are never judged as to how you live in the time-space element of Earth. You cannot waste time–it does not exist in the eyes of the Source. It is an illusion so you may measure your creations and gain knowledge and wisdom from them. Each experience in “time” allows your soul to move forward in its apprenticeship as a co-creator with the Source. You, and only you, can create your life, spending GPT as you are inspired each moment to do. Rejoice in this great adventure. Savor time as your friend. And then ignore it!
Blessings and joy to each of you.
We are Raphael and Betty Rae
