Hidden Projections

By Michelle Saletski-Boyd, C.HT.

A colleague of mine, whom we’ll call Kate, was quite distraught and requested that I call her when I could.

When I was able to connect a few hours later, I could hear her baby crying in the background.

“Ahhhh,” she vented as she picked up the phone “I am surrounded by dysfunction.”

I started to laugh. “You are a counselor,” I reminded her.

“I know, but no. I’m talking about my personal life. It seems everywhere I turn there is drama, and for some reason I am getting pulled into it.”    Read the e-letter.

Surrender to the simplicity of what is

By Diane Marie

What is it about surrender that you totally resist? I have been talking to lots of people over the last several weeks who are holding on to relationships, careers, ideas, beliefs, animals and patterns that are causing all kinds of confusion, stress and upset. Are you trying to figure out what you should do?

Sometimes we have identified with someone or something for so long that we can’t imagine who we would be without that person or thing. I know recently I went through this experience with some beliefs about the identity of who I was.   Read the blog.

Heavenletter #4661 Two Options

By God, with Gloria Wendroff

God said: It is not simply that it is better to count your blessings than to bemoan that which you do not welcome. If your peace and happiness mean something to you, the thing to do is to count your blessings. There is nothing else to do. Counting your blessings works. Your very appreciation brings more good things to you. Count what you’re opposed to, and more that you are opposed to will come to you. Whichever track you go on is the one you walk.   Read the letter.

Heavenletter #4647:  What You are Learning

By God, with Gloria Wendroff

God said:   In terms of personality, everyone lives in his own world. No one sees exactly as you, nor do you see exactly like any other. Not exactly like. Twins are different people who may often see and feel alike, but, by no means, always. Resemblance isn’t identical. You and another may see the exact same scene, and you do not see the scene at all alike. The other seems to read something into the scene. The other is hearing his own chapter and verse, and you see quite a different version.   Read the letter.

Butterflies, Dragonflies, and Enlightenment

By Catherine Ewing

Several years ago I started having close encounters with dragonflies. They started showing up everywhere I turned. Outside on my deck, sitting by water, taking a walk, they flew around me and landed on me in numbers that I’d never encountered before. Several new clients arrived with dragonfly jewelry or accessories and I was given a couple of dragonfly inspired gifts.

I’ve learned over the years that when something starts showing up in my life in that way, Spirit is generally trying to get my attention! I’ve also learned to pay attention to the kinder, gentler nudges, so as not to need a stronger push:)   Read the blog.

Throwing Energy

By Jim Self, published in evolutionezine.com

…. How you respond to the quickly increasing noise and drama during this Shift is a wonderful and consistent training ground for becoming masterful. How do you respond to an unexpected situation? Do you absorb it and let it affect you physically or emotionally? Do you internalize it as stress? Do you react and complain? Are you sarcastic? Demanding? Do you cut the person off at the knees and reject them? (All third dimensional reactions.)  Read the article.

Heavenletter #4605:  When Flowers Fade in the Garden

By Gloria Wendroff, with God

God said:  From whence did the idea come that life on Earth is to be full of stress and strain?  Who says that life on Earth must include suffering? Must what seems like suffering have to be suffering?

When flowers fade in the garden, you take it as a matter of course.  You do not weep for flowers that go to ground for the winter only to rise again in spring.  And, yet, when your friends and family go to ground in what is called death, it is a given in the world that you will mourn, your heart will ache.  It feels as if a dirty trick has been perpetuated on you.  You insist that your loved one’s body is to live forever when, all the while, your loved ones’ souls never cease.   Read the letter.

By Stephanie Hirschmiller, published in The Daily Mail Online, UK

She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.  Read the article and see the pictures

True Meditation – Part 1

By Lisa K, published in OM Times Magazine

What is Meditation?

When a group of students were asked “What is meditation?”, they came back with some really good answers, such as focusing your mind on your breath and coming back to it, or not thinking any thoughts, or sitting still and just being. All those answers are correct, but trying to use those concepts seems difficult for anyone trying to put them into a meditation practice. Over 30 years after studying meditation and what all its pieces mean, here is a simpler way of how to make it all work.

First, meditation is about stilling the mind and becoming the witness. So what does that mean?   Read the article

Are You Dying to Live?

We can discover what really matters in our own lives and begin to fulfill our potential and purpose right now, without waiting until our last breaths.

There is a way through the darkness and it leads to ultimate transformation!”      Listen to the podcast

The Sacred Science of Creative Consciousness

By David Ison, published in 11:11 Magazine

There’s creative magic in the air.  Can you feel it?  It’s everywhere.  It’s in you, in your body, in your mind, in your imagination.  Flowing through the universe itself, flowing through you.  Every moment of every hour, every minute of every day, creative energy moves the world and everything in it.

What if I told you there was a way to unlock the power of your imagination, and open the door to your creative essence?  An essence so powerful, so pure, that by accessing this essential part of yourself, you would have the power to create wondrous things, sing amazing songs, tell moving, meaningful stories, build incredible buildings, bring forward harmonious inventions of all shapes and sizes and dance with the Gods themselves–all with the power of your imagination, all with the essential power of YOU.   Read the article

Setting Things Up Right from the Beginning

Heavenletter #4496 , by God, with Gloria Wendroff

God said:  You are not an owl whose head turns all the way around. You cannot see everything that is coming, and sometimes you are taken unawares. It is life I’m talking about that you cannot always see coming. You may even see a preponderance of being taken unawares in your life. You may see a pattern. You may wake up, and then you fall asleep again and have an uncomfortable awakening.     Read the article

Healing the Past, Manifesting the Future

By Judi Lynch, from OM Times Magazine

Wherever we are in the personal timelines we are now living on Earth, we accumulate a lot of past events and emotions in our process of evolvement. These events are part of our spiritual DNA, the core of our soul’s purpose and life themes. How we heal or don’t heal from it all is up to us. It is a measure of our courage, our faith, our ability to accept that there are forces out there that heal and sustain us as well as challenge and test us. The timelines we create here are completely necessary in healing the spirit and the emotions that are attached.  Read the article

Letting Go

By Kay von Randow, from Shaumbra Monthly

The young girl stood outside her school gates, drinking in the colours of the cluster of beautiful Autumn leaves in her hands. From past experience, she knew bringing such a collection into school wasn’t tolerated. In fact, only yesterday she’d been marched back to the gates by a zealous prefect and made to deposit her precious leaves outside. But letting go was sooooooo hard… Read the article

Beyond 2012 – What now?

by Naresh Sharma, Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Post 21st Dec. 2012, many have sought understanding of what truly happened. The plethora of information given out by too many channelers and mediums in regards to what will happen on Dec 21st – apocalypses, illuminati, pole shifts, UFO landings etc; has now left people confused and disappointed. Many have labeled 2012 to be yet another hoax. I have received comments like “I was expecting so and so, but am disappointed nothing happened.” It is noteworthy how the word expectation is often followed by the word disappointment. So what really did happen on Dec. 21st?    Read the article

If You Are Not True to Your Self, Who Are You Then?

Heavenletter #4439, by God, with Gloria Wendroff

God said:  To be original means to live the Truth of who you are. It means no more imitating. It means that you rise higher. If you want to feel good, rise higher. Rising higher is what feels good. You are fast approaching the days you have sought all your life. You are entering a new stratosphere of your life where you are closer to the beat of your own heart.     Read the article

Do You Make a Difference?
The lifting power of love.

By Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, published on the You Can Heal Your Life website, Dec. 6, 2012

Remembering the wisdom of Dr. David Hawkins.

Many years ago I was with one of my daughters as she completed a lengthy program in the wilderness to help her deal more effectively with some of her teenage dilemmas. The last thing the counselor at the wilderness camp said to her was, “Remember at all times that what you think and what you do affects other people.” This is true even beyond the impact we have on our friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers. I believe that we impact all of humanity.   Read the article

Shift Hits the Fan

By Suzanna Kennedy, on her website/blog

Put your on your hat, goggles and close your mouth! The collective unconscious is becoming conscious and it ain’t pretty. And we thought planetary awakening would be fun. HA!

Give Peace a Chance

I Imagine that John Lennon is very proud. Critical mass has decided to Give Peace a Chance. All over the world, regardless of nationality or spiritual orientation, people have been petitioning, demonstrating and praying for Peace. The collective intention for Peace has gathered the required energy to shift the planet into Peace. And now, together we begin the journey from War to Peace. Does anybody know this road? Are there any signposts along the way?    Read the article

What Should We Expect Dec. 12 & Dec. 21-22, 2012?

By Patricia Cota-Robles

December 12, 2012, 12:12:12, and December 21-22, 2012 are dates we have been hearing about for decades. Since Harmonic Convergence, which took place August 15-17, 1987, people have intuitively sensed the importance of this moment in time, and predicted everything under the Sun. Speculation has run the gamut including everything from the end of the world to the instant manifestation of Heaven on Earth. But what should we realistically expect?  Read the article

Changing of the Guard

Heavenletter #4374;  By God, with Gloria Wendroff

God said:  In the extant world, you may feel that you cannot rely on Me because I do not always seem to be at your beck and call. I do not always play the part you would like Me to play. At the same time, I am your Creator and I embark on your voyage of life right with you. Beloveds, you are also your Creator. You pick out the clothes you will wear. You pick out how you walk, how you speak, how you hum and sing.

Here’s the thing: Reproach no one. Reproach not Me, not yourself, the self you see as you, the personality of you, for the life of you is different from your life that you perceive. You may see yourself as a person denied, thwarted, not heard, not even speaking up. It is you who carries the placard of yourself, yet the placard you carry is not yourself. You are so much more than the individual who parries in life and finds fault with yourself, with Me, with just about everything.   Read the article

2012 = A Shift of Consciousness

By Sarah Delamere Hurding, from OM Times Magazine

I am sure that you have heard of the Law of Attraction and Cosmic Ordering already. Cosmic Ordering is where we make a request to the universe by intent and trust that the universe will deliver.  This is one of the main skills of manifesting, but it does require a certain amount of detachment for it to be successful.

When you make a cosmic order to the universe, you make your request and get on with your life, trusting that it will be delivered in a perfect way. Manifesting in this way is not about controlling exactly what happens. It is about knowing what you want and asking for it in a detached manner. More often than not, the universe understands our needs better than we do ourselves, and often times a cosmic order is delivered with a strange twist, which in retrospect makes absolute sense.  Read the article

Feelings, Nothing More than Feelings

By Geoffrey Hoppe, from Shaumbra Monthly Magazine

 …..  The English word “emotion” was adapted from the French wordémouvoir, which means “to stir up”. That’s exactly what emotions do. They stir up memories, and subsequently trigger neurological responses such as faster heartbeat and breathing, sweating and muscle tension. A series of chemical reactions take place in your brain and body when an emotion is played out. Then you are aware that you are having emotions.

Divine feelings (sensory awareness) come from a non-biological and non-mental faculty within each of us. It is a high-consciousness sense used for observation and awareness. Unlike our mind, it does not judge what it observes. It simply detects attributes of energy, including non-physical energy, such as depth, density, intensity, compatibility, resonance, vibration and clarity.

Our divine feelings are also capable of sensing consciousness.   Read the article

The Secret to Awesome Love:  Intuition

By Sue Frederick, from OM Times Magazine

When we define ourselves as different from our partners, we put them in a box. This blocks the intuitive connection that naturally flows between two people in a loving relationship. It prevents deep understanding.

The truth is our differences are purely superficial. We may be wearing different costumes for this lifetime and playing completely different roles. But we’re all made from the same– divine energy. And we’re all on the same journey–evolving to our highest potential as we try to raise consciousness on Planet Earth.     Read the article

The Divine Puzzle–A Piece at a Time:  True Leadership

By Shifra Hendrie

In these turbulent times, times of crisis and change, leadership – or the lack thereof – is very much on our minds. Interestingly, the crisis of leadership that we’re experiencing today is one of the many signs of our times. In the words of the Talmud: “The face of that generation will be like the face of a dog”. The explanation is as follows: Just as a dog runs ahead of its master but turns around to make sure that it’s going in the direction its master wants it to go, so too our leaders. Rather than leading based on integrity, authenticity, and concern for those they lead, they are concerned instead with opinion polls, partisan and financial interests and looking good on TV.  Read More 

How Do You Count Vastness?

Heavenletter #4318, By God, with Gloria Wendroff

God said:  The Earth revolves around the Sun. In the world, these revolutions are counted, yet the Earth itself and the Sun that shines do not count. The sun beholds the Earth but does not count its revolutions. The Sun is so full, what would it count, and what would be the point of it? The Sun knows its prominence in Eternity. Swept up in Eternity, what on earth would the Sun count? Nor does the Earth itself count, for the Earth is bigger than that.

And yet My children count and get caught up in details when there is Wholeness to get caught up in.  Read More

Lessons from Archangel Gabriel about Spiritual Principles

By  Shanta Gabriel, from OM Times

From the beginning of our association in 1990, Archangel Gabriel spoke in terms of Spiritual Principles. …. We are rapidly moving through the emotional 4th dimensional energies on the way into the energy frequencies connected to a new world that is becoming through 2012 and beyond. In the vibrational frequency of a 5th dimensional space, these Spiritual Principles become the operational essence of our lives. They carry spiritual consciousness and an empowered presence that is palpable when we allow ourselves to receive from this place.  Read More

The Divine Puzzle–A Metamorphosis

By Shifra Hendrie

If you are familiar with the prophecies of the Torah, it is probably becoming more and more obvious to you that our times have a kind of prophetic resonance.

God’s Conversation with Me
