This is a slightly different post, because this New Years Message comes to you from my guardian angel!
No I haven’t gone mad... (well I don’t think so anyway!!)
I often communicate with my unseen friends, in fact a lot of my monthly blogs are channelled, but I don’t tell many people this because I have a fragile ego and I desperately fear being judged!
However my new years resolution is to be as honest and open and as I can with the intention of hopefully helping others that struggle too. Yes I have ups and downs like everyone else and I hope my messages haven’t given you the impression that I’m somehow perfect and I’ve got life sussed!! Oh noooooooo my friend far from it, I’m still learning and growing, but every year that goes past, my life gets easier and simpler. It gets easier because I’m not scared to face my demons anymore. It gets simpler because I'm in a constant process of letting go. Shit happens and when it does, I roll up my sleeves and I dive into the dirt, face down! I wallow and squirm about in it for a bit, then clamber back out, hose myself down and somehow manage to come away much wiser and lighter.
Last month my fears and struggles started to rise within me again. Over Christmas my face swelled up like a balloon due to a tooth abscess. Then half a tooth came out with my first bite of a mince pie. I managed to get to a dentist a few days later and was told I had to have ANOTHER root canal operation. I had one done the previous month (along with many other tooth related issues) and this news of more dental work drained me, not just emotionally, but financially too. To add to the stress of the day, the car then broke down!
My peace had been taken away BIG TIME and I was once again plummeted into distress. Usually when I have any issues with my body or my life, I calmly tune into my body wisdom for all the answers I need, but this time I was too distressed and needed outside help. So it was then I had a little chat with my unseen friends. ‘Why was this happening to me AGAIN?’ I asked. I got all the answers I needed for my teeth and I received an extra bonus message too.
So here I thought I’d share the extra (terrestrial - ha ha!) bonus message with you, as I believe it’s relevant to us all. As the message came through, I recorded it, so it's almost word for word.
“What if I told you there is nothing wrong, there is nothing to fix, nowhere to get to and nothing you need to do.
What if I told you that you are perfect exactly for who you are and for exactly who you are not?
What if I told you you can live a life without suffering, without pain, without sadness without fears.
What if I told you that the root of all your suffering is your judgements about your circumstance. What if I told you that your mind is interpreting your circumstance and turning them into fears, sadness and pain.
What if I told you that your natural way of being is peace and love, would you believe me? Things often happen outside of you that take you away from that peace and love. Things happen “to you” that rock your foundations, your security, your world. However it’s never about the thing that happens to you, but it’s all about your emotions, your thoughts and your feelings about it that pull you about far too easily.
Whatever happens in your life, know you are safe, know you are loved and know you are perfect just the way you are, and know your life is perfect just the way it is. However you constantly yearn for life to be different to how it is and this is what creates your suffering.
You live in a world of polarity full of darkness and light, cold and hot, masculine and feminine and when you truly accept that this polarity is part of your life and part of who you are, then your struggles will stop. Life on this earth is always going to be a series of ups and downs, sadness and happiness, darkness and light, fear and love, because this is who you are, you are part of this polarity, you are made from darkness and light.
When you fully embrace and integrate these polarities, the duality disappears, it becomes one, one principle that is not in opposition to the other, with no push and pull. The polarities of this earth and within you are in fact inseparable aspects of wholeness. Once the wholeness within you has been embraced, there will be a simplicity of beingness shining through all your actions and non actions.
So accept your darkness and your light, your going hot, your going cold, your ups and downs, your feelings of happiness, your feelings of sadness. Accept that this is life and that LIFE JUST IS.
Once you make a promise to yourself to stop resisting or forcing life, and learn how to ride the wave and learn how to peacefully navigate your way through the polarities without your central core of peace being disturbed, your life will no longer be a struggle. Constantly practice bringing yourself back to peace and back to love, because there will always be something "out there" to disturb you "in there". Allow experiences to move through you instead of staying stuck in you. The quicker you learn how to navigate your life through the ups and downs, through the pain and the joy, through the sorrow and the happiness, and the quicker you learn how to allow, accept and ride the wave of these polarities, the quicker you’ll get back to calmer waters.
At some point you might find yourself in the depths of depression and it's OK to be there, surrender to it, feel it deeply, allow it to swamp you and overwhelm you, then know you have the ability to rise back to peace, back to happiness, back to love, back to wholeness.
If you get stuck in the pain, the grief, the sadness, and stuck in the ‘story’ of what happened, this is when it takes over your life and it becomes your life. Your mind and emotions are keeping you stuck in your judgements and interpretations of it. Your mind is believing that this pain is all that there is, your emotions are believing that it’s real, you sometimes even refuse to come out of the pain and darkness, because you want to be right about it. You label it as bad and wrong. You identify yourself as that pain. You want to wallow in the pain to make sure others know you are suffering. When you stay in suffering it makes you right about being a victim. Sometimes you even choose to suffer, because it helps you to hold onto your identity and the story about what you have made up about who you are. So you stubbornly stay in the pain. You then become that pain.
What if I told you, you are not your suffering, you are not your pain, you are not your sadness, you are not your grief. What if you were to believe that you are always peace and love. When you truly believe that this is who you are at the core of your being, when you come back to this place of peace and love, your suffering will instantly dissolve. As soon as your fearful mind gets back in the driving seat, you will find that your peace is instantly taken away again.
And when you believe that life is horrid and it’s out to get you and that life is painful, you will keep reenforcing that this is how life is and you will then stay even more stuck in the suffering.
Be OK with everything the way it is, because there is no right or wrong, only your judgement of it, everything JUST IS. Know you have the power to change how you feel in an instant, because lasting happiness, peace and wholeness comes from within you not outside of you. See it, feel it and know that this is your true being, and the longer you can stay in this place of peace and love, the easier it will be for you to ride that wave. So even when things appear to go "pear shaped" in your life, you can easily get back to that place of peace. The more you practice peace and love from within you, it will then become your natural default mechanism. Then from this default mechanism, your highs will become even higher because you have come from the starting point of happiness. Your extreme highs are more accessible and easy to get to because you are almost already there.
So it’s your choice whether you stay in the pain or come back to peace. All it takes is for you to consciously bring yourself back to peace and love. You do this by becoming still, by removing all your thoughts, removing all your emotions, then put your hand on your heart and breathe love into it. This will bring you back to a place of stillness where you are held, you are supported, you are loved, you are whole. From this place of peace, you are more likely to make the right decisions and choices to move you forward in your life, than you are from a place of your turbulent emotions.
The more you practice coming back to peace when things upset you, the better your life will become. And because you ‘feel’ this happiness more often, you will attract more experiences of happiness to you, because whatever you vibrate, you attract more of.
So this is my message to you for 2020, no matter what ups and downs you experience this year, know that the downs will pass and ups are on their way back to you. Because you are peace. You are love. You are whole”.
