Happy Easter 2013




As the stone rolled away from Christ’s tomb so it is that our closed hearts have been opened.  We are therefore, one with our Creator, one with Christ and one with the Holy Spirit.  Nothing can separate us from this Divine Love.




Easter Sunday is symbolic of a new beginning.  Embrace this gift from our Creator and venture forward with a gracious heart.  Let your heart over flow with love, compassion and kindness to others.

Always be assured that you are never alone for Christ’s spirit is always with you, and therefore there is nothing too big, or too burdensome for you to overcome.

I send you an abundance of love from my heart.

Peace and joy be with you always and may you always be protected by Christ’s Divine Light!

I wish everyone a very blessed Easter!

Good Friday 2013 - The Crucifixion






John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.

Christ Jesus, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped; but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, and was born in human likeness. And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him, and bestowed on him the name which is above every name.

Philippians 2:6-9






We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you:
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

Holy God,
Holy and Mighty,
Holy Immortal One,
Have mercy upon us.


 


God’s Mercy and Love, by Simone Well

From Waiting for God

It is in affliction itself that the splendour of God’s mercy shines, from its very depths, in the heart of its inconsolable bitterness.  If still persevering in our love, we fail to the point where the soul cannot keep back the cry, “My God, why has thou forsaken me?”, if we remain at this point without ceasing to love, we end by touching something that is not affliction, not joy, something that is the central essence, necessary and pure, something not of the senses, common to joy and sorrow:  the very love of God.

We know then that joy is the sweetness of contact with the love of God, that affliction is the wound of this same contact when it is painful, and that only the contact matters, not the manner of it.

It is the same as when we see someone very dear to us after a long absence;  the words we exchange with him do not matter, but only the sound of his voice, which assures us of his presence.

The knowledge of this presence of God does not afford consolation;  it takes nothing from the fearful bitterness of affliction;  nor does it heal the mutilation of the soul.  But we know quite certainly that God’s love for us is the very substance of this bitterness and this mutilation

****

God created through love and for love.  God did not create anything except love itself, and the means to love.  He created love in all its forms.  He created beings capable of love from all possible distances.  Because no other could do it, he himself went to the greatest possible distance, the infinite distance.  This infinite distance between God and God, this supreme tearing apart, this agony beyond all others, this marvel of love, is the crucifixion.  Nothing can be further from God than that which has been made accursed.

This tearing apart, over which supreme love places the bond of supreme union, echoes perpetually across the universe in the midst of the silence, like two notes, separate yet melting into one, like pure and heart-rending harmony.  This is the Word of God.  The whole creation is nothing but its vibration.  When human music in its greatest purity pierces our soul, this is what we hear through it.  When we have learned to hear the silence, this is what we grasp more distinctly through it.

Those who persevere in love hear this note from the very lowest depths into which affliction has thrust them.  From that moment they can no longer have any doubt.
   
Men struck down by affliction are at the foot of the Cross, almost at the greatest possible distance from God.  It must not be thought that is a greater distance.  Sin is not a distance; it is a turning of our graze in the wrong direction.

Peace and love to everyone!

The Lord's Supper - Holy Thursday.



The Last Supper

17 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”

18 He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” 19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.

20 When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. 21 And while they were eating, he said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.”

22 They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, “Surely you don’t mean me, Lord?”

23 Jesus replied, “The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. 24 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”

25 Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, “Surely you don’t mean me, Rabbi?”

Jesus answered, “You have said so.”

26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”

27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the[a] covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”

30 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Matthew 26:17-30
New International Version (NIV)




Always remember ...
 To have eyes that see the best in people,
A heart that forgives the worst,
And a soul that never loses faith.

 Blessings and Love to you all!

The Lighter Side of Life!




“The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.”

~ Mark Twain ~


Too many of us go through life carrying the world on our shoulders as if it’s ours to bear.  We often take life far too seriously and therefore we miss out on the most important part of our lives.  It’s almost as if we’re wearing blinkers much like a race horse.  We can only look at one aspect of the road ahead of us, which is to succeed, succeed, and succeed.  If you honestly think about it at the end of the day you may count your days of success as some of your greatest disappointments.  When you keep your attention on only one thing you very often miss out on the greatest rewards that life has to offer.

Very often it’s a good thing to take a vacation from life.  Have a little fun and adopt a lighter approach to life.  Make choices that bring you joy and ones that lift your spirits. Watch a funny movie instead of listening to the news on TV. Read a humorous book in place of a newspaper.  Listen to light music or take a walk outside.   Find humour in day to day situations.  Laughter can dispel and chase away any argument or misunderstanding.  Take a step backward when you’re in a conflicting situation and see the funny side of it instead of taking it seriously because it’ll pass as everything does.  Don’t take everything people say or do so seriously either.  When you really take a look around and remove the blinkers you’re wearing you’ll find that our Creator really does have a wonderful sense of humour and so do you.
 
If you find yourself in the company of a negative person, politely interrupt them and say “I’m on a vacation from life, can we please speak about something that’s positive or funny instead!”  You’ll be amazed how quickly they’ll be willing to co-operate with you and play along. 

“Laughter is the spark of the soul.”

How true the above saying is.  Haven’t you noticed how wonderful you feel when you’ve had a good laugh?  It’s almost as if you have more energy and your perception of things becomes a lot clearer.  Laughter is very contagious.  Once you tune into that happy, lovely frequency, life around you automatically picks up that same frequency and plays a happier tune.  You begin to emit those “Good Vibrations”!

Take time out to nourish your soul.  Have a good rest when you feel you need to.  Sometimes our souls cry out for solitude.  Listen to your body and to the inner stirrings of your heart. 

The angels always talk about having fun.  Do it!  Let go of all your stresses and strains because it’s not yours to hold onto in the first place.  Instead release them.  Give the reins back to your Creator and let him steer your life instead.  Then just let go.  Take a deep breath, laugh and enjoy life! 

God bless you all!

Palm Sunday 2013




As Christ entered Jerusalem he was greeted as King and Messiah,
Let us adore him, and joyfully praise him:
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna to you, Son of David, King of the ages,
-hosanna to you, victor over death and the powers of darkness.
You went up to Jerusalem to suffer and so enter into your glory,
-lead your Church into the paschal feast of heaven.
You made your cross the tree of life,
- give its fruit to those reborn in baptism.
Savior of mankind, you came to save sinners,
- bring into your kingdom all who have faith, hope, and love.

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord, God of Hosts,
Heaven and earth are full of your glory!
Hosanna in the highest!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest!

Amen.



The Answer is Love!

Choice by Angela Morgan



Choice

I'd rather have the thought of you
To hold against my heart,
My spirit to be taught of you
With west winds blowing,
Than all the warm caresses
Of another love's bestowing,
Or all the glories of the world
In which you had no part.

I'd rather have the theme of you
To thread my nights and days,
I'd rather have the dream of you
With faint stars glowing,
I'd rather have the want of you,
The rich, elusive taunt of you
Forever and forever and forever unconfessed
Than claim the alien comfort
Of any other's breast.

O lover! O my lover,
That this should come to me!
I'd rather have the hope of you,
Ah, Love, I'd rather grope for you
Within the great abyss
Than claim another's kiss-
Alone I'd rather go my way
Throughout eternity.

~Angela Morgan~





Mind your Mind!






The philosopher Epictetus(AD55-135) wrote:

"People are not disturbed by things, but by the view they take of things."

If you look closely, you will find that by far the greater part of any unhappiness in you is created not by situations, but by what your mind is saying about them. It's created by the self-talk in your head. Such dysfunctional thinking strengthens the ego, but it weakens you. How to end it? Meet situations and people without judgment. Don't indulge in mental movies about past and future. Give your fullest attention to the present moment without mentally labeling it. This is the arising of Presence, a new state of consciousness that frees your mind from its old conditioning. This new consciousness will give rise to a new world.

~Eckhart Tolle~

Follow Your Heart!



Listen to the whispers of your heart for it will guide you in your life!



The Twin Soul Experience!




When you are awakened by your Twin Soul initially, it sparks off the beginning of a wonderful journey of self-discovery.  You discover what a loving and creative soul you truly are and so the romance begins.  The amazing discovery of yourself reveals God’s love and His essence within you and also that of your Twin.  It’s a beginning of a romance with yourself, with God, with your Twin Soul and with life. 

When you have this Twin Soul experience, you will automatically see God in everyone and everything.  No longer will you hold onto fake beliefs about others or yourself either, for these beliefs will disappear as you continue forward.
   
From a very young age we begin by trying to please others and to seek their approval.  This behaviour very often follows us into adulthood.  Sadly when we fall short of certain expectations we begin to feel a sense of guilt and shame.  This can cause a lot of psychological disorders for some.  The memory of who we are as a loving beautiful and creative soul is unfortunately forgotten.  Ultimately this can make us feel very vulnerable and so we find it difficult to show our true selves to others.  We may even subconsciously build a wall around ourselves as protection against hurt and rejection from others. This can jeopardise our relationships with other soul mates.

Once you begin to work on your inner-self after the Twin Soul experience, all the misconceived ideas and negative thoughts you’ve been carrying around with you simply fall away.  The veil is lifted and you discover your true self.

The connection you have with God and your Twin Soul does not only reveal to you how much you are dearly loved and how precious you really are but it also liberates you.  It moves you to the point that you want to express to others what love is truly about.  A complete transformation takes place within as you discover the real you.  All of your creativity and talents come to the fore.  You may even discover that your tastes and interests in certain things are changed. Old relationships may also fall away because you discover you no longer have the same interests as they do.  Your perception of life changes completely.

The awakening to your Twin Soul is a beautiful gift from God.  It is one of love, freedom, expression and discovery.  It truly is a gift that should be embraced and nurtured and not to be dismissed as a whimsical fantasy. Many who have been awakened by their Twin Soul counterpart often feel that what they are experiencing is merely a figment of their imagination.  Encountering or meeting your Twin Soul is such a profound experience that it may leave you feeling completely dumbfounded, confused and for some, even a little fearful because you are actually looking at a reflection of yourself mirrored back to you from the other.  Past lives together are also very often remembered.  Telepathy between Twin Souls is activated immediately.  The Twin Soul journey also enhances the psychic senses.  Some may discover that they indeed possess the following gift afterwards:

Clairaudience, Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, Clairgustance, Clairscent & Clairtangency.  (Follow the link below for the definitions.)  
    

Many Twin Souls even go so far as to try and explain what has happened to them to others, who cannot possibly understand what they’re experiencing because they have not experienced it for themselves.  Unfortunately this can only deepen the confusion as they will definitely tell you that it’s all your imagination or they may even call you “crazy”.  My advice is to seek out those who are experienced in this field, if you must.  Personally I prefer to receive council from God, my Higher Self, the Angelic Realm and my Spirit Guides.  I do understand that some would prefer a human explanation but truly the knowledge you seek can only come from a Higher Spiritual Intelligence.  After all, this is a spiritual union and not a human one.  It’s also a very personal experience.  Make no mistake it is definitely not wise to confront or chase after the twin if they are incarnated on earth as they themselves may be having a hard time accepting it and understanding it too. Once again this relationship is divinely orchestrated and timed.  Unfortunately it may take a little longer for your twin to come to terms with it. Their memory of your connection to them may remain clouded for a while.  As I said before it is a personal experience therefore the Twin Soul Experience varies from person to person it just depends on how spiritually awakened we are as individuals.  These matters are entirely in the hands of God.

I’ve said before that we are all spiritual beings having a human experience. We are all connected to each other spiritually.  Souls are brought together physically during their earthly journeys to learn, teach and support one another in their incarnations.  This however, does not mean that we are not connected to the other soul families spiritually while we are here on earth.  Twin Souls carry the exact blueprint and essence of each other.  They possess the exact same soul vibrational frequency and soul signature too. Therefore, no matter where your Divine counterpart/Twin Soul is, be it here on earth or in other galaxies and/or other dimensions, they are always connected to you wherever they are, whether they or you know it or not. The connection between Twin Souls can never be severed.  I write this because many twins who have had “the experience” with their divine counterparts wish to break free of the connection or don’t want to accept what is happening to them, because it can be a very emotional and painful process at times.  Unfortunately, this cannot happen.  True love can never be destroyed.

Many souls are being awakened at this time by their Twins as a preparation for the ascension to higher dimensions.  You may even be awakened by your Twin Soul even though you are in a marriage or a relationship with a Soul Mate. The Twin Soul awakening can happen to us at any time in our lives.

Other Twin Souls are physically joining together as couples on earth to fulfil and complete their soul contract with each other as they work together as light bearers of love and service to other souls.

A very important message that I’ve received from one of my Spirit Guides about Twin Souls is that no amount of struggling to “figure it all out”, as he put it, helps us.  He put it to me this way; “The Twin Soul Experience “just is”.  The sooner we are able to embrace this fact and accept it, the sooner the bigger picture will be revealed to us. His question to me was; “Why are you fighting it?  Accept it because this is a privilege and one that should be accepted with grace and gratitude for it is a divine blessing from God with the intention of bringing all his beloved Twins together and then homeward.”

Sending you love and light!

Explain God.




How to Explain God

 written by Danny Dutton, age 8,
 from Chula Vista, California,
 for his third grade homework assignment.


"Explain God".

"One of God's main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace the ones that die so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth. He doesn't make grown-ups, just babies. I think because they are smaller and easier to make. That way He doesn't have to take up His valuable time teaching them to talk and walk. He can just leave that to mothers and fathers.

"God's second most important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things, pray at times besides bedtime. God doesn't have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this. Because He hears everything, there must be a terrible lot of noise in His ears, unless He has thought of a way to turn it off. 

God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere which keeps Him pretty busy. So you shouldn't go wasting His time by going over your mom and dad's head asking for something they said you couldn't have.

Atheists are people who don't believe in God. I don't think there are any in Chula Vista. At least there aren't any who come to our church.

Jesus is God's Son. He used to do all the hard work like walking on water and performing miracles and trying to teach the people who didn't want to learn about God. They finally got tired of Him preaching to them and they crucified Him. But He was good and kind, like His Father and He told His Father that they didn't know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said O.K.

His Dad (God) appreciated everything that He had done and all His hard work on earth so He told Him He didn't have to go out on the road anymore. He could stay in heaven. So He did. And now He helps His Dad out by listening to prayers and seeing things which are important for God to take care of and which ones He can take care of Himself without having to bother God. Like a secretary, only more important.

You can pray anytime you want and they are sure to help you because they got it worked out so one of them is on duty all the time.

You should always go to Church on Sunday because it makes God happy, and if there's anybody you want to make happy, it's God. Don't skip church to do something you think will be more fun like going to the beach. This is wrong. And besides the sun doesn't come out at the beach until noon anyway.

If you don't believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very lonely, because your parents can't go everywhere with you, like to camp, but God can. It is good to know He's around you when you're scared in the dark or when you can't swim and you get thrown into real deep water by big kids.

But you shouldn't just always think of what God can do for you. I figure God put here and He can take me back anytime He pleases.

And that's why I believe in God."

The Chakras




The 7 Chakras are the energy centers in our body in which energy flows through.


Blocked energy in our 7 Chakras can often lead to illness so it's important to understand what each Chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely.

Follow the link below about Chakras.



I have linked these wonderful Chakra Clearing, Opening and Meditation You Tube videos compiled by Carol Tuttle who is a Master Energy Therapist and Chakra Mastery Trainer  for your benefit. 




Happy St Patrick's Day.



Saint Patrick is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland. St Patrick is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. Most of what is known about him comes from his two works; the Confessio, a spiritual autobiography, and his Epistola, a denunciation of British mistreatment of Irish Christians. Saint Patrick described himself as a "most humble-minded man, pouring forth a continuous paean of thanks to his Maker for having chosen him as the instrument whereby multitudes who had worshipped idols and unclean things had become the people of God."



May you always be blessed
with walls for the wind,
A roof for the rain,
A warm cup of tea by the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
And all that your heart might desire.

The Light of Love!




Both light and shadow
are the dance of Love.
Love has no cause;
it is the astrolabe of God’s secrets.
Lover and Loving are inseparable
and timeless.

Although I may try to describe Love
when I experience it I am speechless.
Although I may try to write about Love
I am rendered helpless;
my pen breaks and the paper slips away
at the ineffable place
where Lover, Loving and Loved are one.
Every moment is made glorious
by the light of Love.

~ Rumi ~

Emotions and Vibrations.







Perfect Timing and Twin Flames.



So many questions are being asked about the timing of Twin Flames and why the timing always appears to us to be a bit off.  In Gabriella Hartwell's beautiful and insightful blog she explains about this aspect.  Please take a read as I'm positive it will shed some light on the subject for you.

What is Life?








You must understand the Whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life.

Longing


Longing
by Matthew Arnold

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

Come, as thou cam'st a thousand times,
A messenger from radiant climes,
And smile on thy new world, and be
As kind to others as to me!

Or, as thou never cam'st in sooth,
Come now, and let me dream it truth,
And part my hair, and kiss my brow,
And say, My love why sufferest thou?

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

Live in the Moment

























Very often you are so involved in the material world, your careers and other people's lives that you forget about yourself. You loose yourself out there, in the world. Living in the past and for the future is not truly living for it impairs you and prevents you to live a fulfilling life. When you learn to live in the moment and appreciate everything you have now and start a relationship with yourself, by loving and appreciating who you are, you will then truly only begin to live a fulfilling life. Once this is achieved, you will discover what your purpose is in life and you will be able to follow it with enthusiasm, happiness and fulfillment. Along this discovery you will find God who dwells inside of you and He loves you unconditionally. His love overflows inside of you and He gives you this love to share with others around you.


When you share this love with others, you and your life will be blessed abundantly.


Love and Light from Spirit.

Artistic Expression




When your artistic talents need creative expression and become dormant this energy can make you feel tired, restless, and anxious and can lead to addictions if the energy isn't expressed. Even if your artistic abilities feel unpolished, they need an outlet. Make the time to draw, paint, sing, play music, write, take photographs, make jewelry, sew, dance, or do something artistic and creative. You may find the key to your life's purpose and ideal career through this process.

A beautiful poem by Charlotte Bronte





Parting
By Charlotte Brontë

There’s no use in weeping,
Though we are condemned to part:
There’s such a thing as keeping
A remembrance in one’s heart:

There’s such a thing as dwelling
On the thought ourselves have nursed,
And with scorn and courage telling
The world to do its worst.

We’ll not let its follies grieve us,
We’ll just take them as they come;
And then every day will leave us
A merry laugh for home.

When we’ve left each friend and brother,
When we’re parted wide and far,
We will think of one another,
As even better than we are.

Every glorious sight above us,
Every pleasant sight beneath,
We’ll connect with those that love us,
Whom we truly love till death!

In the evening, when we’re sitting
By the fire, perchance alone,
Then shall heart with warm heart meeting,
Give responsive tone for tone.

We can burst the bonds which chain us,
Which cold human hands have wrought,
And where none shall dare restrain us
We can meet again, in thought.

So there’s no use in weeping,
Bear a cheerful spirit still;
Never doubt that Fate is keeping
Future good for present ill!
