“I no longer try to change outer things. They are simply a reflection. I change my inner perception and the outer reveals the beauty so long obscured by my own attitude. I concentrate on my inner vision and find my outer view transformed. I find myself attuned to the grandeur of life and in unison with the perfect order of the universe.” Daily Word
TIP 15: RELEASE & RECEIVE
Let go of the old and make room for the new. Look around and release anything that does not fit the life you desire and invest in what invokes desired energy.
TIP 16: CHANGE WHAT ISN’T WORKING
Change the patterns that have created any undesired aspects of your life, and establish new physical patterns to create desired results. Examine the past and present to determine the future – because repeating patterns creates the same results; change requires change.
Forcing or pushing yourself usually results in resistance rather than forward movement. You do not need to totally change your life, unless that is what you are guided to do. You can create your new life and work gradually, one step at a time. Whatever your life’s work is, it often changes from time to time; however, it always involves your special skills and doing what you love.
I pulled an oracle card for my readers today after asking what you need to know right now? The card is SPIRITUAL GROWTH: You are going through a period of rapid spiritual growth. Enjoy the process! The angels indicate that during this time of rapid spiritual growth you may be feeling a combination of a variety of feelings: excitement, confusion, fear and wonder. Sound familiar? You may be wishing you had the earth time to concentrate exclusively on learning and meditating and could read and study on a full-time basis. At the same time, you may also be worrying about what implication your spiritual studies will have on the rest of your life. For example – your marriage, job, career, or friendships? These fears are capable of creating blocks to the enjoyment of your spiritual studies. Surrender these fears to the angels and Source. Ask the angels and then trust them to love, support and guide you in every moment. Do not worry about how your future will blend with your spiritual growth. Trust the angels to take care of everything for you on your spiritual path and remember that the God/Source that supports every planet in the Universe will have no difficulty whatsoever supporting you! Everything is in Divine Order.
Clear away painful patterns from your past. Decisions, actions, and beliefs from your past can have a powerful influence on your present life. If conventional therapies, such as psychotherapy, conventional pastoral care etc. fail to clear painful patterns from your current life then you may wish to consult an Angel Therapist(R) such as myself or a highly qualified hypnotherapist to help you clear away any past life patterns that are holding you back from your best life. My own life has required conventional psychotherapy for this current lifetime as well as some extensive work on my past lives. Sometimes past life vows of celibacy, poverty and suffering can follow us into our current life and these vows can be severed with the angels if you so choose. However, I always counsel my clients to work on their current life first before exploring past lives – because it is tempting at times of pain and confusion to wish to disappear into a past life and ignore current life issues. That is not in your best interests. I suggest working backwards from your current life if old wounds and patterns are not dissolving. Just do not allow any past life to hijack this one! Our current life is our most important life and many of us lightworkers are on our last one on this very challenging planet.
Self-love and self-acceptance are crucial to letting go of what no longer serves and choosing to create your best life. (Read my previous pieces called Self-Honesty, Self-Love & Letting Go of Lack) Ask your angels to help you to realize that every part of yourself is wonderful and to let go of negative self-judgements and enjoy being you! I did it by becoming the loving and kind parent to myself that I needed in order to grow – and asking the angels to hold my hand every step of the way. Do remember that there can be an extensive period of inner work for some of us before change takes place. Likely, you are now changing your thoughts, reevaluating your life and observing things from a new, different perspective. You are also gathering the energy deep within you to make a change. The greater the outer changes that you are working on – the greater the inner changes that will need to be made first. This is an inside job! You will open up like a flower when you are ready to bloom. It takes great courage to totally transform yourself so be kind and gentle to yourself and learn to just love and accept whomever you are at this present moment in time. Because, as you love and accept who you are right now, you make it possible for yourself to move in a new direction or directions. I use this affirmation daily: I accept and love myself for who I am right now. I also say every day: I am open and willing to take my life in new directions. I am becoming more aware of my many options for harmony and optimism in my thoughts and in all my choices each day. It is very important to release your past in order to embrace your future – to make room for what you are creating. An affirmation that helps to clear the past is given to us by Sandra Anne Taylor: “I release stuck energy, old habits and restrictions. My life is opening up. I am free to choose my reality.”
Your beliefs create your reality! Remember, a belief is just a thought you keep thinking. Beliefs are assumptions about the nature of reality. Since you create what you believe in, you will have many ‘proofs ‘ in your life that confirm that reality operates the way you believe it does. So, if you want to change your reality, you need to change your beliefs according to what you wish to experience. If you are looking to change something, ask yourself, “what would a person who created this have to believe in order to be in this circumstance?” Then, ask yourself, “what would a person need to believe in order to reverse this situation?” One of the oracle cards in my energy deck has a lovely woman all tied up. When I pull this card, I ask my client, “What beliefs are keeping you tied down?” Because, unless my client wants to continue being “tied down”, she needs to change those beliefs! Your beliefs about your creations determine how you attract and relate to them. I have changed numerous beliefs over the last 9 years and continue to do so as I have found that much of my limited thinking came from my parental programming and was planted at such an early age by parents and teachers and others around me whose lives and beliefs had been deeply affected by war and poverty. Everyone does the best they can at their level of consciousness, however, I have dis-covered that we need to release old programming from current and past lives in order to find inner peace and happiness. We dis-cover that we can choose what beliefs, thoughts, concepts and images we wish to employ in order to create our ‘new’ life.
Orin and Da Ben, the spirit guides of Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer, recommend one way to ‘let go’ of an old belief and create a new one. You become very quiet and relaxed somewhere you will not be disturbed. Imagine a light all around you and then in some symbolic way remove your ‘old’ belief. You may see it written on a screen in front of you, or in the air in front of you, or on an imaginary blackboard. Now, start erasing the letters one by one and picture the ‘new’ belief in its place, maybe in big letters or a unique font or scroll. Write it down and say it frequently and many of my teachers used post-it notes in the early stages – putting these notes to self around their work spaces and homes. One of my teachers actually has one of her main affirmations written into the wall above an entrance inside her house! Every blog I have written has at least one tip for you with an attitude or practice that will help you create a new life. Revisit these as guided by your angels/guides. I have received criticism lately for having each blog be about the Law of Attraction; however, this is the most crucial Law in creating your life and no matter how many books we read about it – many people do not really ‘get’ it! By the way, if you have read this far in this blog – you are not one of those criticizing – because the people complaining obviously did not read past the first 2 sentences and are therefore unaware that this is a course on the Law of Attraction!
One client recently asked me if she continues to do exactly the same things will she continue to have the same results as always? Of course, she knows the answer is yes; however, she just needed confirmation from the angels to follow her new path – which will require change. We can all relate to this! We are all resistant to change at various times in our lives. However, change is inevitable because change is growth. When we choose to follow the advice of our angels, guides, and the ascended masters – the change/s can be gentle. However, many of us, wait until change is forced upon us by the universe. I have had my own experiences of changes that were far from gentle and have spoken of these frequently, so, let us talk for a few moments about a client that I had many, many years ago and her resistance to change. Let us call her Sophy (of course, this is not her name) Sophy was referred to me by another alternative healthcare professional. Sophy had been guided by this professional to make the change of quitting her job as although it was prestigious and lucrative and used her talents and skills, it was very stressful, she was surrounded by negative people and it was exacerbating her health issues and creating new health concerns. So, Sophy asked for an Angel Reading, by me. I received the message that Sophy was guided to quit her job immediately, giving just the required amount of notice. This was the same basic message Sophy had received from her previous counselor and I was only confirming what she did not want to hear! (We’ve all been there!) So, Sophy made the decision to carry on as she was. She hated the job but felt that it was not wise to let go of such a lucrative position. Some time later, weeks or months? I can’t remember the timing, I received a phone call from Sophy wanting to book another Angel Reading and spiritual counseling. She had been suddenly fired, escorted unceremoniously from the building ( as on the highly touted movie with George Clooney and Anna Kendrick called Up In The Air, 2009). She was distraught and we booked an immediate appointment. The session with Sophy’s angels and guides confirmed what I had suspected – that the Universe was operating for Sophy’s Highest Good. That while currently very upsetting – all would work out to be for her Higher Good in the end. And, it did. Sophy was guided during that session as to how to proceed and what explicit directions to take in order to manifest a healthier life and circumstances were such that, down the road, Sophy ended up in a far more lucrative position with a very reduced schedule that allowed her an opportunity to pursue things that she had not had the time for before, including the time and money to care for her body and to travel! If we ask for guidance – we receive it. “Ask and ye shall receive.”
We can choose aliveness and growth as a lifestyle. This is a wise choice, because, as my spiritual and metaphysical teachers have taught me, and as I have experienced, the only thing that doesn’t change is God’s unconditional Love for us. It is our Free Will choice as to whether or not we accept or reject this Love. Either way, God’s Love is unchanging. Angels are standing by in every moment waiting to help you if you ask. Angels evolve through service, as do we.
It takes some of us longer than others to ‘grow into’ our new beliefs. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Be patient. Do the work. And, remember – you will only allow yourself to manifest what you believe is possible. Think of one thing right now that is something you want and do not yet have. What new belief about yourself might you need in order to have it? Are you writing this in your journal? Release the old and welcome the new. Nature abhors a vacuum.
