At times I am the best student you have on the planet, my Beloved Guides. On those days, I’m full of spunk and motivation. Then there are days when pulling a thread of gratitude out of any subject poses the threat of unraveling my soul. Is this part of the energy bath we are experiencing on this planet? I don’t remember having such intense feelings.
We promised you a short, powerful message today. Your opening is perfect for offering the love we have to share with everyone. Thank you for allowing us to use your life so others can see themselves – to whatever degree they are prepared and willing to see.
No matter what you are experiencing on the physical plane, your soul is glorious. Its magnificence does not ebb and flow although it may seem to fluctuate during life events. All That Is – this All Loving Beingness – abides with consistency as it awaits your invitation to assist and guide. You must ask. There can be no response without a request. This is the Law that protects and respects your will.
Through your prayer and meditation, we are able to respond. Let our whisper haunt you into listening. Let our nudge be the turn into a loving direction. Let our hunch lean you into investigation and our energy revive the truthful sense of your soul’s magnificence.
I didn’t feel magnificent yesterday when I stood my ground with a woman who persistently told me what I was thinking and feeling. I don’t often let frustration cause me to hurl responses, but yesterday, I’d had enough. No matter what I said, it was attacked. No matter how I tried to express my feelings, they were attacked. I recognized old behaviour that I am loathe to repeat: Her invitation to “communicate” was actually a drive to force her rightness down my throat.
My Beloveds, I did not give the woman the verbal fire hose that was waiting within reach of my tongue. Instead, I told her it was obvious I could only agree to disagree. I discontinued any further involvement with the situation.
You said a prayer for this person which is cause for celebration. You even asked that she be given all goodness that you want for yourself in life.
Yes, I did. I found myself feeling joyfully relieved. I once fell in love with a man who turned out to be a “rager”. His behaviour was foreign
to me. I did not recognize the abusive nature of his accusations and blame. Being a strong woman, I never dreamed I would be in a position where emotional abuse would be cutting furrows into my soul. After keeping this a secret for a couple of years, I was on a Train-the-Trainer Course and I confessed to my colleagues as we studied anger. A fellow Facilitator, a Psychologist, gently explained that emotional abuse can cut far deeper than physical abuse because we don’t see the wound as it becomes engorged. When I peeled myself away from the relationship, the fellow facilitator further explained that healing can take three times longer than it took to be wounded.
But, Guides, I thought this was going to be your message!
You are speaking the message. Do stories not have power? You are a trainer. What good is a lecture compared to a story? We encourage human souls who are in the clutches of such subtle and soul-impacting situations to recognize their pain. May they take the steps necessary to free themselves. Support, love and healing can begin after the first step. No soul need experience such ravages. Abuse comes in all sizes, ages, shapes and form. It needs to be recognized. Verbal, mental, emotional and physical.
You could forgive today because you remembered this is an opportunity to see how you have grown. One of your agreements was to heal from victim-hood and to find peace. You surprised yourself when you reacted strongly to the blame being hurled. You took a number of stabs before the flames exploded. But you took care of yourself. Instead of shooting flames on another soul, or opening the fire hose, you gracefully discontinued any further involvement with this person.
Our message ends with the risk of being repetitive. The planet is invited to move from intellect to feelings. It is through feelings that souls are tapping into their power. The vulnerability produced by feelings is the pathway on which the reward will arrive. Intellect means the road is under construction with a detour that presents more obstacles. Feelings mean the road is open and refreshment is available at every stage.
This explains, Child of the Universe, why you don’t remember such intense feelings. They weren’t given life as they are now. We are pleased with your studies and with the insights that bring love more deeply into your life. We thank you for the intimacy. Your planet is craving it.
Thank you, Beloveds, for your support, encouragement and wisdom. It must be hard to stand by and watch us struggle. I know you won’t give up!
