Enjoy the Light of the Season

Ann Albers

(copied from spiritlibrary.com)

My dear friends, we love you so very much,

In the midst of the darkness, many centuries ago, there came a great light. A humble child was born in a manger embodied a love so pure and surrendered to a light so bright that it forever changed and elevated the vibration of humanity.

Each of you remembers this light. Each of you longs for this light. Each one of you is birthed from this light, and each of you celebrates this light when you find it birthed within your own lives.

You feel this light in every kind word and ever thoughtful gesture. You see this light in the eyes of every baby who looks upon the world with wonder. You feel this light in your own hearts when you extend compassion to a fellow human being. You channel this light when you feel the currents of love and appreciation running through you, and every time you share a loving word or gesture with one another.

This light lives in you. You are the manger in which the light is born over and over again. You are the lamps that never extinguish. You are spirit of the season and your light is present all year long.

So as you embark on your holiday season, be the lights of the world. When you shop for presents, shop with love. When you make a gift, hold it to your heart and fill it with love. When you bake, bake with love. When you share with a charity, do so with love. When you leave your milk and cookies for Santa, know that you are leaving an offering of love for the spirit of love and generosity itself. When you can sit for a moment, ask to be filled with heavenly peace, and to feel the presence of the silent night within your own quietly beating heart.

We wish you a season filled with peace, joy, wonder, and most of all, the beautiful light birthed within you, shining forth into a world in need.

God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Message From Ann

I love the holidays. No matter what the world is doing, I enjoy the baking, time with friends, gifting, decorating, and so much more. To some, that might seem spiritually shallow, but to the angels, any act performed with love is an act of deep and lasting vibrational value. I know the season is about so much more, yet I love the fact that we can be both deeply human and Divine and enjoy them both. There is no separation.

In fact, the more I surrender to my human desires to enjoy the season, the more God works through my joy. In the middle of a day of gazing online with Braco – the miracle healer from Croatia – I was suddenly inspired to run out for a quick holiday errand. The clerk at the store noticed my pendant and commented on how she was really “drawn to it.” I told her it was Braco’s symbol of the light within.

She smiled, confessed that she didn’t tell too many people, and proceeded to share her own miracle story. She was born with failing kidneys. As she grew up, she was slowly dying. Her mom brought her to a faith healer. Being a young teen, she asked God to heal her without making her look silly by falling on the floor or having her speak in tongues. Instead, the healer touched her and she felt a huge warmth burn through her, followed by a feeling of being jolted and then, she said, “Suddenly I knew I was healed.” She has been healthy ever since. Her doctor was amazed.

We smiled feeling immediate kinship. She was thrilled to become aware of another miracle healer. I was in joy to hear another miracle story. My errand was accomplished and so was God’s! 

Trust your own heart. This holiday season, enjoy it however you wish, or not at all. Just be true to yourself. It really is that simple.

As we honor our own hearts, we honor the One Love, and the One light, from which we all are born. As we serve our own joy, we share that joy with others as well.

Here are a few tips to stay in light and love during the busy holiday season:

1. Only do what you genuinely want to do

You don’t have to have a “Normal Rockwell” Christmas unless that is your wish. Do the season your own way. Be authentic.

I’ll never forget my first Christmas after a relationship ended. I was alone and although I usually love Christmas, I wasn’t feeling at all Christmassy. I decided to do something completely non-traditional, and went hiking alone because nature always nurtures my soul. There, at the top of Camelback Mountain, in the middle of the city, I found myself amidst quite a celebration of strangers all chatting, laughing, sharing cookies, and enjoying the camaraderie of our shared love for nature.

To make matters even better, we were treated to an impromptu concert by a Scottish exchange student, dressed in full Scottish attire, who serenaded us with Christmas Carols on his bagpipes at the top! What are the odds?! It was an unusual but delightful celebration with total strangers.

Had I ignored my heart and tried to feel “Christmassy” at home that year I would have been sitting alone feeling sorry for myself! God had better plans. All I had to do was let go of my “shoulds” and be authentic about what I wanted to do.

2. Do what you love… or find ways to love what you do.

If you find yourself doing something out of obligation, rather than joy, rethink it. Either find a way to enjoy it, find a way to delegate it, or don’t do it. It is the season to share love, not to stuff stockings – or stomachs – out of duty.

This Christmas I decided to do what I wanted when I wanted. Instead of writing this newsletter early in the week I dropped it to run to the post office and mail packages, which suddenly felt like a fun errand. Miraculously there was no one else in line! I was in and out in ten minutes.

The week before Thanksgiving, I managed to coordinate work on the house, work with clients, put up Christmas decorations, make Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas shop, and more. Nothing felt rushed. It was fun. I did what I felt like when I felt like doing it.

By choosing to do what we want to do when we want to do it, we place our trust the universe’s amazing coordination and flow. 

3. Practice random acts of kindness… for yourself too!

This one is easy. Be kind to strangers. Smile. Give away candy canes (one of my favorite “Santa Claus” activities!). And… don’t forget to stop and enjoy the season for yourself.

While I treat everyone else as if I’m a “fairie godmother” granting wishes during the season, I’ve learned to include myself as well. If I lose a few hours sleep because I’ve spent them under a warm fleece blanket sipping hot cocoa and watching a heart-warming Hallmark movie, I wake up energized and have even more spirit to share!

Be sweet to yourself as well as others!

I hope you can enjoy the spirit of the holidays, by being loving to yourself first, and then allowing the true spirit of the season to spill over. And if you’re not feeling “Christmassy” it’s OK… be sweet to yourself anyway and let the Divine work a little loving holiday magic in your own life.

Love you all!
Ann

Scientists Discover Herb That Fights Dementia And Increases Memory By 75%

😀

SeventhRay 2035

A team of scientists has shown that sniffing rosemary can increase the memory by 75%. This multi-purpose medicinal herb offers numerous health benefits due to which it has been commonly used throughout the history.

One interesting fact is that the ancient Greeks wore rosemary springs in the hair while studying for their exams.

This amazing herb has been used to boost long-term memory and alertness for millennia. Even the famous Shakespeare mentions the incredible benefits of the rosemary in “Hamlet”.

A study conducted at the Northumbria University, Newcastle in 2003 found that smelling rosemary is related to “an enhancement of performance for overall quality of memory and secondary memory factors”.

After ten years, these scientists scientifically explained the cognitive-boosting abilities of the herb. Namely, the experts followed twenty people as they performed subtraction exercises and visual information processing tasks and other tests. They assessed the mood of the participants before…

Awakening from the Trance of Unworthiness

by Tara Brach

Discovering the Gold: Remembering Our True Nature by Cultivating Mindfulness and Compassion

I remember when I was on a book tour for Radical Acceptance, one of the places I stopped was the Buddhist university, Naropa. They had a big poster with a big picture of me and, underneath the photo, the caption was: Something is wrong with me.

The Trance of Unworthiness: Forgetting Who We Are

I wrote about the Trance of Unworthiness in Radical Acceptance 14 years ago, and I’ve found, over the years, that it is still pretty much the most pervasive expression of emotional pain that I encounter in myself and in those I’ve worked with. It comes out as fear or shame —  a feeling of being flawed, unacceptable, not enough. Who I am is not okay.

A core teaching of the Buddha is that we suffer because we forget who we really are. We forget the essence — the awareness and the love that’s here — and we become caught in an identity that’s less than who we are.

When we are in the trance of unworthiness, we’re not aware of how much our body, emotions, and thoughts have locked into a sense of falling short and the fear that we’re going to fail. The trance of unworthiness brings us to addictive behaviors as we try to soothe the discomfort of fear and shame. It makes it difficult to be intimate, spontaneous and real with others, because we have the sense that, even if they don’t already know, they will find out how flawed we really are. It makes it hard to take risks because we’re afraid we’re going to fall short. We can never really relax. Right in the heart of the trance, there is a need to do something to be better, to avoid the failure lurking right around the corner.

Space Suit Strategies: How We Manage in a World of Severed Belonging

Entering this world is difficult. Due to their own wounds and fears, a lack of attunement from caregivers is common. Depending on severity, this can create a core wounding of severed belonging: if I am not enough or if I fail, I won’t belong anymore. It starts early, and we internalize the messages relayed through our families: Here is how you need to be to be respected and/or loved.

In order to navigate this difficult environment, we don spacesuits — our ego survival strategies — to make it through. The suffering is that we become identified with the spacesuit and forget who is looking through the mask. We forget the tender heart that longs to love without holding back.

The sense of unworthiness gets dramatically amplified depending on our culture. Western culture is very individualistic and there’s not an innate sense of belonging. Fear of failure is really big. Every step of the way, we have to compete and prove ourselves and we have a profound fear of falling short. Messages of being inferior are particularly toxic for non-dominant populations. In different degrees, for those that don’t fit the dominant culture’s standards, there is an accentuated sense of not being enough.

So, we all develop our “space suit” strategies to manage ourselves so that we will “belong.” You probably know the ways you go about getting other people to pay attention, or to love you, or to respect you. For many of us it’s striving and accomplishing and proving ourselves. For some, there’s a habitual busyness. For others, there are addictive behaviors that numb and soothe the feelings.

The Golden Buddha: Remembering Our True Nature

One of the stories I’ve always loved took place in Asia. There’s a huge statue of the Buddha. It was a plaster and clay statue, not a handsome statue, but people loved it for its staying power. A number of years ago, there was a long dry period and a crack appeared in the statue. So the monks brought their little pen flashlights to look inside the crack — just thought they might find out something about the infrastructure. When they shined the light in, what shined out was a flash of gold — and every crack they looked into, they saw that same shining. So they dismantled the plaster and clay, which turned out to be just a covering, and found that it was the largest pure solid gold statue of the Buddha in all of southeast Asia.

The monks believed that the statue had been covered with plaster and clay to protect it through difficult years, much in the same way that we put on that space suit to protect ourselves from injury and hurt. What’s sad is that we forget the gold and we start believing we’re the covering — the egoic, defensive, managing self. We forget who is here. So you might think of the essence of the spiritual path as a remembering — reconnecting with the gold . . . the essential mystery of awareness.

Radical Acceptance: Awakening from the Trance of Unworthiness

The practice of meditation, or coming into presence, is described as having two wings. The wing of mindfulness allows us to see what is actually happening in the present moment without judgement. The other wing is heartfulness or love — holding what we see with tenderness and compassion. You might think of it as two questions: What is happening right now? and Can I be with this and regard it with kindness? These are the two wings that we cultivate to be able to wake up out of the trance of unworthiness — out of the spacesuit self — and sense that gold that’s shining through.

I’d like to invite you to take a moment to check in and just to feel into the inquiry: Is there anything, right this moment, between me and feeling at home in myself, at home in who I am? What is here, right now? Can I be with this? Can I regard this with kindness?

How important the element of acceptance is

Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young

Dear Ones, we cannot express enough how important the element of acceptance is to your awakening journey. It is the core of enlightenment. It is essential to unconditional love, unity consciousness, and receiving the help of a universe that adores you. It is the anti-dote to resistance.

One very easy thing you can do, should you find yourself in a state of discomfort, is to simply breathe in acceptance and breathe out resistance. If you stop and focus on doing that, just for a few moments, you will find yourself very quickly moving into a much more comfortable space.

We urge you to try it, for every time you choose acceptance, you are empowering yourself to move with the energies with grace and ease, patience and peace. Simply put, acceptance is like healing balm for the soul. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young

Love: a story about who you truly are

tumblr_oxo66yxizp1shqusmo1_500

“Be your own best friend. Love yourself just as you are!”
This is the message that “Love: a story about who you truly are” teaches children to embrace. Within the pages of this beautifully written and illustrated book, children are taught how to have compassion and acceptance for themselves. And how to love themselves through many everyday situations. The happiness and confidence that can come from learning this ability is a gift that children, even grown-up ones, will carry with them their entire lives!
Love: a story about who you truly are

‘Healing’, in the deepest sense of the word – Jeff Foster

I want to talk a little about ‘healing’, in the deepest sense of the word.
Healing, not as the removal of symptoms, but as the recognition of wholeness right in the midst of our pain. 
Healing as presence, the natural welcoming of whatever arises.
Sadness heals you from sadness.
It heals you from the identity of ‘the sad one’, or rather, ‘the one who wants to be free from sadness’. It brings you into intimacy with life. It aligns you with what is.
It helps you soften into the body, into the Earth, heart cracked open to love.
Anger heals you from anger.
It reveals to you, at its burning core, that there is no ‘angry person’, there is just power. Life. Pure non-dual energy that we call ‘anger’ and run away from in superstition and unconsciousness.
It reminds you of your deep worth. Helps you hear your unique voice.
Fear heals you from fear.
It liberates you from the story ‘I am afraid’. It is an explosion of life, belonging to no-one. It is a great and misunderstood protector.
It knows the excitement of moving into the Unknown.
Shame heals you from shame.
There is no need to be ashamed when shame comes to visit. Shame only wants to be held in unconditional love, in the warm Presence that you are. And there, it dissolves back into its source.
It was only trying to keep you safe.
Simply heal from the idea
that you need to ‘heal’ feelings.
All feelings are innocent at their core.
They come with lessons, gifts.
Don’t try to heal them.
They come to heal you.
To remind you of your natural wholeness.
If you would only let them move through…

Authenticity – October 5, 2017

Areon via Jayme Price
https://jamyeprice.com/authenticity/

Blessed Beings, as always it is a precious and powerful moment when we meet in your awareness. It is your awareness that shapes Life. It is your awareness that brings the energy of the world into you, and the energy of you into the world.

Your unique perspective touches all that you experience. Your unique flow changes the flow of the world around you. As a species you are becoming more and more conscious of your interaction with the subtle realm. You have always been and will always be communicating with the subtle realm.

Your thoughts and emotions are a subtle bridge, and they are how you communicate directly with the subtle realm.

It is important to understand the totality of your interaction with the subtle realm, so that you do not simply just apply the rules of the physical realm to the subtle realm. As you shape your interaction with the subtle realm, you begin to understand more empirically and clearly—that is where energy builds into form. You must understand the rules of energy to utilize the momentum of the subtle realm.

Authenticity Creates Harmony

What you are building in the subtle realm does not have the conditions of form and time. It is therefore most important to become fully aligned with what you want, rather than thinking or feeling in a controlled way to create an outcome.

It is especially important that your thoughts and feelings are authentic so that you shiftyour own resonance into a clearer alignment with what you want to create. This creates a harmony within you that is resonant with your future creation.

What is most important is that you become fully aligned with what you are wanting to create.

To “speak” clearly with the subtle realm through your thoughts and emotions, think and feel authentic thoughts, then realign them to shift into a clearer resonance of what you want to create. Perceive your own capability and creativity more easily. This aligns your vibration with what you are wanting to create. It changes you, and you change your world.

Your authenticity is your doorway to finding a true resonance and alignment with your improvement.

You are thinking and feeling authentically to move your internal resonance into alignment with your new creation, your new you, your new experience and desires. Suppression of “negative” emotions does not allow for their transformation, and it creates a stagnation in your own energy.

 

AUTHENTICITY CREATES CLARITY

Your authenticity helps you go through the process of release and refinement. The process of release is the process of letting go so that change may occur—just as you must exhale to continue breathing.

Your authenticity triggers your awareness that you want something different and the catalyst of change begins.

It creates a harmony in your vibration that opens you to new choice. When you are authentic in the moment, you allow the emotions and the information that has accumulated from your past experiences to begin its natural transformation process into improvement. It is the natural flow of Life.

The next step in the process is integration and choice. As you begin the approach from an authentic thinking and feeling mechanism, you are using the momentum of the subtle realms because you are transforming your vibrational resonance. By the time you begin to create in the physical realm, you have already utilized the momentum of the subtle realm that builds worlds.

Authenticity Changes You

You are a forerunner of creating directly with the subtle realm. It is a much larger transformation than you often give yourself credit for because the subtle realms are invisible to your senses until you open your subtle senses. Then you must rely on your own internal experience for proof. You do; however, have synchronicities that show you that you are on track and creating in a real and profound way.

It takes time to fully integrate a deep understanding of working with the subtle realm and moving toward more conscious co-creation with Life. It takes a courageous balancing of masculine and feminine energies to master this flow.

Your authenticity allows for the nurturance of the self into a strength continues creation more easily.

You have an inherent deservability and capability. Your desires cannot even manifest into your awareness until you are resonant with potential solution. That is the power of your awareness.

Choose your focus. Allow your authentic information to flow—your fears, your excitement, your desires. This opens you to the flow of Life to come through you into the physical realm. In that moment of becoming aware of a change that you want to create in yourself and your world, you begin the process of release. You release that which is discordant or blocking your harmony with what you are wanting to create.

In that moment of release, you are also beginning another very important process of release—you are releasing your desire into the world. You release this energy from the subtle realm into the physical world. Resonance responds. Life begins supporting your process of creation in the physical realm.

You are the vessel through which Life flows.

Your authenticity creates an awareness of desire. In that moment of awareness, you begin to become resonant with your desire. It is just a matter of time and choice before it becomes physical.

First choose your focus. Allow your authentic resistance and excitement to surface. Focus your awareness toward the feeling of your desired result. It is a process of release and refinement that creates integration and choice. Appropriate action will inspire from this new resonance within you.

It is a process that requires patience, because you are in the realm of matter and time. As you are patient with the outcome, you are creating harmony within yourself. It requires trust that you are deserving and capable of your creation.

You would not even have the awareness of the desire unless you were already resonant with it outside of physical time and space. Therefore you are already deserving and capable.

 

AUTHENTICITY CHANGES THE WORLD

It is the deservability that is often the key of change for the compassionate beings that create with the greater good in mind and heart. Sensitive beings will tend to suppress their own life force when they are in an environment with fear, negativity, domination and suppression. This is a survival mechanism, yet when it is not necessary for survival, it depletes thriving of the species.

Deservability is a key component for those with compassion becoming sufficiently empowered to allow their life force to stay strong enough to bring the passive force of Love into the active force of action and physical creation. The deservability (a feminine energy nurturance) creates a strength of flow for action (a masculine energy manifestation).

When action is connected to Love, you are utilizing the momentum of the subtle realm. The passive force of Love binds Life through resonance, which is another way of saying choice. That is different than the control of the physical realm.

Deservability creates a balance within, a mastery within.

One of the easiest ways to build your deservability that Life has inherently granted you, is to enhance your internal connection with self love. Love yourself. This improves your internal harmony and flow. From that replenished wellspring of flow, you improve Life.
To enhance your self Love, put your hands over your heart and speak to yourself, as if you were talking to a beloved child. “I love you, [insert your name]. I trust you, [insert your name]. You are loved and valued by Life.”

As you feel into your own internal resonance, let any doubts begin to transform. Trust yourself to respond to the information that Life is flowing to you. As you open to your deservability within, your communication with Life will change. You will begin to attune to your harmony within that tells you when and how action is appropriate.

You are shifting internally so that you are resonant with Life. Your actions in the physical realm are then inspired from the momentum of the invisible realm within you and around you.

It is just a matter of time until manifestation (masculine energy), which you refine through transforming your authentic emotions into a new internal harmony (feminine energy). From this powerful resonance, your desires inspire action until it becomes manifest in the physical realm.

The key is self love, it opens you to your flow.

Life flows where Life force is resonant. Life wants you to thrive.

With this we remind you, Eeshah, Ehmah, Ehtah. We love you. We receive you. We bring your Love forward and are forever changed by your awareness. You are Life. You change Life with your awareness. You are powerful. You are valuable. Life changes through you. Eeshah, Ehmah, Ehtah.
