Good Morning World!
Can you believe we’re in the middle of January already? They say, “Time flies when you’re having fun!” I must be having tons of fun. Are you?
It is so weird to be writing a “blog” when I don’t know if anyone even reads it. I would so love to hear from you out there. But, since I journal every day, I’m used to talking to myself. The neat thing for me is, I get answers from my friend, Raphael–when I ask. To be able to channel an “archangel” is–well, to say the least–amazing. I had so much fear and doubt over it when I first started–years ago. But now, I take this miracle for granted. Funny though, I do not call upon my friend very often except perhaps right here, right now.
And so, I take a slow deep breath and silently ask Raphael to visit with me today.
Beloved Rae, Be at peace. We are always with you. We gladly send these thoughts to you so you may send thoughts of love and peace to those who would read your blog. If each soul would simply reach out to their own divine guidance that dwells within them, they could find the counsel and peace always offered. Like you in the beginning, it is difficult to trust the insights, inspirations and unconditional love welling up from within. So often humans swing to the negative polarity to react in cynicism and doubt regarding anything they cannot prove to be truth as they define it.
Ah, yes! Truth! I’ve always wondered about that word. Is it more fiction than fact–truth? I remember my eighth-grade student saying, “I hate school and that’s a fact!” So truth to him was school was a waste of his time. And I was trying to teach him the difference between “facts” and “opinions.” It was the hardest concept to get across. Perhaps that’s the problem about truth. Do we mix up our feelings and opinions with facts? Do we call something “truth” when it is just our opinion? Hum… something to ponder.
The human emotions are so embedded within the psyche, it is difficult to understand truth from fiction. And yet, we say to you, dear readers, your whole world within the physical is not truth. It is fiction–and you are the author of your story. You are the director of your stage play and Earth is your stage. You are the star of your show. Only you can define truth as it relates to your vision of life.
I am only beginning to understand that. So, when I’m feeling down in the dumps, especially when my body is ill, I ponder “why?” Why did I create this uncomfortable event in the now moment? And then I am reminded that I am not alone on my stage. Other “actors” enter stage right, dance around with me for a bit, and then exit stage left. Like yesterday, since my doctor was not available, my cough drove me to a clinic to get antibiotics. So my GPS found the nearest walk-in clinic. I know part of my illness was to lead me to that particular place, to those particular people so that I could call upon my angels to bless everyone there–and it was crowded. One darling little girl with pig tails all over her head had a cough much worse than mine. But she smiled brightly at me, and I was blessed in her presence. I returned the smile and felt I was exactly where I was meant to be.
Dear Souls–you are always exactly where you are meant to be. And wherever that is, you can be a blessing to the world even with a simple smile of acceptance and love. Your task each moment is to recognize when your emotions are radiating fear and doubt, and to switch to love and trust. When you become consciously aware of your state of mind, you have immediately raised your consciousness to a higher vibration, and you will immediately feel the difference within your body, mind and soul.
And so, dear readers, we leave you with this thought: Will this New Year bring you more peace and joy from a raised consciousness? Or will you continue to be caught in the anger and struggle of a lower consciousness? It is always our choice. Frankly, I choose to live in love and trust. It feels so much better–and that’s a fact!
An abundance of blessings to you,
