I’ve been feeling the Presence of Love so much more strongly these days. It is available to us all. It feels beautiful to feel this light taking over; possessing me to the degree I will let it. I know there is so much more surrender I can accomplish, but I will continue to do this by degrees.
One of my dearest dreams this year was to have peace in my heart even when the fears and pains of others attempt to derail me. I’ve gone through some very tough personal challenges the past few years as I’ve learned to love those who hate and hurt. I’ve been praying and dreaming of what it would be like to be rock solid, rooted so deeply in Love that nothing would sting anymore.
A few weeks ago I went through what would have been very tough personal drama, had it happened a few years back. People I shared my heart with, in confidence while working through some personal feelings, betrayed my confidence. The gossip inspired pain in others who heard only an incomplete version of the story. I was maligned and made fun of behind my back. This is nothing new. My profession and my life invite censure from those who simply don’t share the same experiences, but normally it would sting coming from someone I trusted.
It didn’t sting this time. I felt the Presence of Love within me looking at all involved and feeling only compassion for their pain, and weirdly… I felt joy. It certainly was not my personal joy. It was the joy of the Love looking at lives that had been stuck and saying, “Now there is movement. Now there is growth. Now there are chinks in the armor of hardened hearts where light can get through. As Ann, I felt love, compassion, and sadness for the pain in those who would put me down to feel better.
The angels told me to shift my focus back to the joy. Souls were growing! Light was filtering in! This was not mine to resolve unless those involved wanted to talk to me directly. My dream for peace in my heart had finally come true. I feel the Presence ever so much more strongly.
I relied heavily on the Love that lives within us all to help me navigate these emotional waters with grace. I sat, breathed, received, and waited for guidance until I knew what to say, and that was precious little. What once would have inspired months of drama, turned into a few emails rooted in love and finding a common human experience.
We never have to know how our dreams and desires can manifest. Anything you ask for with love will come to you in its essence. The peace, healing, career, relationships, abundance, etc., are already there in the divine mind. All we have to do is line our minds up with that energy and allow Love to guide us.
Here are some pointers this week to help you be guided by love.
1. Remind yourself constantly, “I do not have to know how…”
Dream your dreams as a little child would – with wonder, excitement, and anticipation and then let go. Don’t worry about how they’ll come about or what form they’ll take. Worry is a habit we have been taught. Little children don’t worry if Christmas is coming. They know. They trust.
When we trust we get miracles. I have, so many times, received financial help just when I didn’t know how to pay a bill, emotional help in the form of a bubbly friend, a kind stranger, the beautiful fragrance of a rose, just when I was in need. I received answers even to computer issues when I waited patiently with faith and trust that the technical problems would be resolved. Faith is believing in things unseen, as the saying goes. In this type of Faith we allow the Divine to work in our lives.
Tell yourself often, “I don’t need to know how.”
Our thinking is limited.
The Divine has infinite vision, resources, and possibility.
2. Focus on Love
When I didn’t know how to forgive in my past I asked God to help me love the hurtful souls. I was shown their childhood pain and compassion ensued.
When I didn’t know how to pay a bill, I focused on feeling grateful for all I did have and hope arrived.
When I didn’t know how to heal a body in pain I focused on anything that was beautiful and inspiring in life so I could allow the body the love it needed to self heal.
When you focus on anything to feel loving and good about, you are making room for Divine love to flow more freely in your life.
3. Go back to breathing…
The angels repeat this suggestion over and over, simply because it works. Sit. Breathe. Receive. If you haven’t tried it, do it now. Just for a minute.
Try it for a few minutes a day. Try it when you’re worked up and need a loving solution. Try it when you don’ know how to solve a problem. Inspiration may hit, or you may simply feel the peace you need until the guidance arrives.
Make space for help through your breathing.
My wish is that we could all know our unlimited and beautiful loving nature, and that we could all feel the Love that lives within all beings. Something deep shifts within when you know you aren’t dreaming alone. The creator of universes lives, breathes, and moves within us all 🙂
With so much love,
