Challenges Are Opportunities

Every challenge provides an opportunity for growth, and in some cases, a quantum leap. Many of us have a habit of looking at obstacles in life as bad things, and they can be when we look at them that way; on the other hand, when we look at life’s complications as opportunities for personal growth, our energy shifts, and so do the dynamics of the situation: our vibration increases, our energy rises, people enjoy our company more, and problems are solved in an easier and timelier manner. This practice makes a vast difference in our life and the lives of people we interact with. Who would you rather spend time with, a person who has a positive outlook on life, or someone who is always complaining about something? Of course, when we complain we create more of that which we are complaining about… we keep digging the hole deeper.

pic_opportunityOur outlook is the essential key. When we approach a problem with an open mind, focusing on the solution rather than the problem, the solution reveals itself. When we focus on the problem rather than the method to resolve the situation, it grows larger and becomes even more daunting. The whole energy around the obstacle changes when we look at a challenge as a gift rather than a bad thing, and place our attention on the way out.

When we focus on the good in our world rather than the problems, we draw more beneficial karma our way. It is simply a matter of cause and effect. Focusing on the good in other people and our world brings more good people and pleasurable experiences into our environment, thus eliminating problems before they become an issue. My dear friend and mentor, Ronna Herman, says (I’m paraphrasing): “We can tell how we are doing by the people and experiences in our life.”

When we encounter difficult people, they are mirroring some aspect of ourselves back to us. When we have problem after problem, we are being shown something about our thoughts and beliefs that can be changed. Many, and probably most, of our thoughts and beliefs are the result of our environment at an earlier age, coming from parents, teachers, relatives and friends. In The Spontaneous Healing of Belief, Gregg Braden tells us that we acquire most of our beliefs during our early childhood.

opportunity-wahooI know that this may just seem like a bunch of platitudes, but I assure you, if you put this practice to use, you will experience an amazing change in your life, for the better.

If you are not already doing this, give it a try, and let me know what happens. It will take some time and dedication, but the rewards are well worth the effort.

As Mahatma Gandhi said,

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

 

Be joyful, embrace life and thrive!

New Energy Spots

I am from Atlantis.  I am from Lemuria.  I am from Pleiades and I am from Sirius.  I have lived in Ancient Greece and sat on the throne of early Celtic kingdoms, but currently I live in New Jersey.  This place on Earth in which I now dwell, is being born and nurtured, by me, to be a power spot of the future.  What makes this so, you may ask; it is because I am holding the light and rising to the highest vibration of the New Age that man has seen in eons. It is not only me that is doing this, there are many light workers all over the globe who have dedicated their lives to holding as much light as possible and raising their vibration as high as possible. What makes my place on earth a power spot now?  It is because I am currently living on a significant point on the Earth’s energy grid and holding that spot so that the grid can be secure.  I am meant to be here and by doing so, I am fulfilling an important part of my life’s purpose.

 

earth_grid1There was a time when the Earth’s energy grid was complete, but as the vibration of humanity diminished over the ages, the integrity of the grid weakened and became fragmented, resulting in a dis-communication of the axitonal lines that connect life on earth to the cosmos. The purpose of this connection is to maintain and regulate the quality of life on this planet and the life forms that inhabit it.  When the signals are weakened, life must work much harder to maintain its optimal condition. In other words, as we can see, things begin to deteriorate.

 

Fortunately for us there is Divine Grace, meaning that for some mysterious reason, just at the right time, when it was needed most, man has awakened his consciousness to the awareness that we had better do something quickly or else! In addition, there has been a Divine Dispensation, allowing much-needed, higher vibrating information to be transmitted from Angels, Ascended Master and other highest beings, to those willing and able to open up their hearts to receive it.   Because of these events the necessary energy tools are available to make this evolutionary process occur more easily and quickly.  We have been provided with the means to let go of the denseness that has kept us trapped in the Collective Consciousness and we are now able to rise to blissful higher realms while still living in our three dimensional bodies on Earth.

 

atlantis1sMany of us are able to remember those incarnations we experienced in Atlantis, Lemuria, and other ancient cultures in countries that still currently exist, such as Egypt, Ireland and the Americas. It is all well and good to remember these days and these lives, but that’s not try to re-create what we have already experienced and let us not forget that these societies did not meet the ends to which they strived. Instead, let us look forward to a highly evolved culture that we have just begun to create.   These are the first days of the next Golden Age, the one that will flourish and not fall, one that will succeed and the one that we are now building. We are beginning to see the fruits of our work, and our hopes and our dreams.

 

The key now is to be creative. We are in uncharted territory, there are no guidebooks  and no manuals. We are our own gurus and teachers, for only we know the path we should follow and the actions we must take to accomplish our goals, but keep in mind there are no mistakes, because if something doesn’t work, it will only lead you closer to the answer. Yes, this is it, the beginning of what we have worked and hoped for.  Observe it with joy, relish it with wonder and give thanks that you were blessed enough to be part of it.  Realize the magic of life and learn to dance to the rhythm.

 

I am Zi’antha, Keeper of the Principles of Divine Grace.

 

 

We All Have A Purpose. What’s Yours?

Are you marching to your music or someone else’s? If you are marching to the beat of someone else’s drum, I recommend that you find your own beat. Did you know that the word vocation stems from the Latin word vocatio, meaning “summons”? Look deep within, and consider whether what you are doing is in harmony with what you truly, intuitively enjoy. Are you doing something because a parent or someone else told you to do it, or because others in your family have done it? If so, and if it gives you a great degree of pleasure, that is good. On the other hand, if you do not enjoy your vocation, your life will be more fruitful and enjoyable if you discover what your purpose is and incorporate it into your life, even if it is as your avocation. It can be done one step at a time.

purposeHow do you discover your purpose? Just ask yourself this question: what are you passionate about? In fact, the connection between your purpose and your deepest passions is the basis for that well-known quote from Joseph Campbell: “Follow your bliss”. Life is meant to be enjoyed; do something that makes your heart sing. Follow your passion, your desires; do not give up! Many of us give up just as we are about to reap the rewards of our efforts. It could be just around the corner.

For those of you that know exactly what makes you happy – what truly causes the deepest joy to reverberate deep within you – your path might become clear for you rather easily with that connection to purpose. And that’s wonderful, as your life’s loves are probably things that you know you’ve aligned so closely to throughout the cycles of your life. What a blessing that is!

life-purpose2For many others, however, it’s not such an easy question to answer… and, unfortunately, that unease can cause many people to harbor even more fear and self-doubt. The question itself seems straightforward enough to us: What are we truly passionate about? That the answer isn’t as straightforward as the question shouldn’t worry you; it should just compel you to give it more time for thought and reflection. That uncertainty doesn’t mean you don’t have the spiritual grounding or vibratory wherewithal to accomplish your purpose (and your bliss), and it certainly doesn’t mean you’re any further from achieving your highest potential than those who know without hesitation where their passions – and purpose – inherently lie. In fact, it is fully possible that such uncertainty is part of the path you are meant to be on, for its questioning might be there to serve as a crucial impetus for recreating your life’s blueprint.

Consider, for example, the following quotation:

I begin to think that I have a genius for working like an ox over totally irrelevant subjects. … I am filled with an excruciating sense of never having gotten anywhere—but when I sit down and try to discover where it is I want to get, I’m at a loss. – January 1932 journal entry, Joseph Campbell

Yes, that is the same Joseph Campbell who would soon learn how to follow his bliss! In the earliest stages of his inner (and outer) seeking, the passionate urges and depths of feeling that he felt caused him to feel restless and doubtful. He was driven by an unseen force of passion and fire, but in order to identify what those passions were – and what his life purpose truly was – he had to seek deeply within, to explore those hazy nooks and crannies that aren’t always easy to get to, much less master. But you just have to turn in the right direction, beginning your journey right where you are. Remember, as I said before, that you can take this one step at a time.

I discovered my purpose by employing both the left and right hemispheres of my brain. First I created the following lists, then I used my intuition to sense what felt right.

These lists can all be created all on the same day, one day at a time, one week at a time or any way that resonates with you. I created each list daily for a week then moved on to the next one, except for the lists for accomplishments, challenges, what I’ve always wanted to do, and clues from the past. Please do what feels right for you. For most of them, I listed twenty items (it was more difficult to come up with something after the first ten or so), but work with this any way you like.

 

#1 YOUR STRENGTHS
What are your strengths? We all have them. What are yours? Think about what you are good at, even the simple things, like being a good listener, being a good driver, having a good sense of humor. What are your strengths?

Make a list of your strengths. Stretch yourself; when you think you are done, find some more. You can start with, “One of my strengths is…” and complete the sentence.

 

#2 WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO
What do you love to do? What brings you a great degree of pleasure when you’re doing it? What do you have a passion for?

Make a list of what you love to do. “I love to…”

 

#3 YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS
What have you been successful at? What have you accomplished so far in life?

Make a list of your accomplishments. This is an ongoing list that you can add to and review periodically.

 

#4 WHAT YOU ENJOY DOING
What do you enjoy doing? Is it dancing? Is it gardening? Is it traveling? List what you enjoy doing. Many and perhaps all of these will be the same as what you love to do, and you may come up with a few more.

Make a list what you enjoy doing. “I enjoy…”

 

#5 KNOW WHAT YOUR INTERESTS ARE
What are you interested in? Compile a list of your interests.

Make a list of your interests. “One of my interests is…”

 

#6 WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT
What are you good at? You don’t have to be an expert, but what are you good at? Write a list of what you are good at.

List what you are good at. “I am good at…” or “I am a good…”

 

#7 WHAT YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO
What have you always wanted to do? What have you recently decided that you want to do?

List what you want to do. This is an ongoing list that you can add to and review periodically.

 

#8 WHAT YOUR CHALLENGES ARE, AND HAVE BEEN
What have been your challenges in life? What challenges have you overcome? Compile a list of your challenges: challenges that you’ve overcome and challenges you are still experiencing. In many cases, our challenges are an indication of our mission in this lifetime. It is through trials that we gain wisdom, and because of the wisdom gained we have the ability to help others, especially people who are experiencing a similar challenge.

List your challenges.

 

#9 THE CLUES FROM YOUR PAST
If you look back over your life, you will find clues to your life purpose. Think back and compile a list of things that come to mind.

I’ll give you some examples that I came up with when I did this. It turned out that my life purpose is to teach. As I looked back to the past, this is what I discovered:

Years ago, while I was on vacation, in a gift shop I saw a small basket full of stones on a glass shelf. I picked one up, turned it over, and “teacher” was etched in the stone.

I taught the martial arts for years, when I was in my twenties and thirties.

When I worked in the corporate world, I enjoyed mentoring people and speaking in front of groups.

When I would learn a new healing modality, I would always share what I had learned with friends.

As I thought back to aptitude tests I took in college and from a book I had read, one of the things that came up was “corporate trainer.”

I was in an intensive 5-day workshop in 2007 where I received a brief message from Archangel Michael via the teacher. I was told that “my contract is very clear.” I was befuddled by that cryptic message, so I asked the man who delivered it if we could talk later, so I could get some clarification. He told me that I had agreed to come here to be a teacher.

As I looked back on all of these clues from my past, and there are more, I was amazed that it had taken me so long to figure out what my purpose is – it seems so obvious now.

Create a list of times from your past that resonate with you – clues from your past.

 

#10 PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
Now that you have created your lists, it’s time to find things that resonate with you the most. Look over your lists and determine what came up the most and which ones felt best to you as you were writing them down. What feels best to you as you read it? From those three you can narrow it down to one by visualizing, feeling or sensing yourself doing it, finding the one that feels the best.

Spend some time to determine what makes your heart sing and start taking action on the ideas that come to you. A great way to get started is to research the topic on the internet or at your local library. Another is to interview others who are doing the same thing or reading autobiographies of people who have done what you would like to do.

The answers are within you. You can do this on your own. You came here with a purpose (actually more than one). I hope that this method has given you the tools to discover what your purpose is, as it has me and others.

Steps:

  • Discover what your passion is, and where your talents lie – what you love to do.
  • Determine what you want to do and set your intention.
  • Pay attention for guidance/ intuition/ ideas and insights (keep a note pad or hand recorder handy, especially by your bed and in the car), so you can record the guidance as you receive it. Ideas will start coming to you.
  • Take action. This is a big one, but the steps you take can be small ones.
  • Track your results. Keep a journal or log.
  • Celebrate your successes and your failures. Successes feel wonderful, but when we don’t make the right decision, it is a wonderful opportunity to learn and gain wisdom. I have made my share of mistakes, but I don’t consider it a failure unless I don’t learn from it.

We all came here to contribute, and our contribution makes a difference. Your life purpose will be something that you love to do and will give you a great degree of pleasure.

 

Be joyful, embrace life and thrive!

With love,

Randy

What Does It Mean To Be A Lightworker and What Is The Definition of Spirituality?

It seems to mean different things as the evolutionary process continues. In 2013, spirituality is the process of being one’s self. A light worker is one who works with energy through themselves. The spiritual path, then, is one of returning to the being that we are so that our gifts and our purpose may be realized on the Earth plane.

lightworkersHow we begin this process is by quieting the mind so that we may hear ourselves, letting go of the noise and chatter and thinking of nothing. When you find yourself back in the noise, even if it is only a minute later, start thinking of nothing again. You created the habit of living in the collective consciousness and you can create a new habit of living within and from yourself. Begin to hear what your are saying to yourself. What do you like and with what do you resonate? When you acknowledge your desires, you are connecting to your Higher Self and what it is telling you. Surround yourself with beauty and you will hear the truth for truth is beauty.

No matter how many classes you take, books you read or seminars you attend, there is really only one path to spirituality and that path is knowing and being yourself. The learning you do in the spiritual realm can give you tools with which to help you achieve self-knowledge, but the real work must be done by you. But what does it mean to truly be yourself? It means letting go of the collective consciousness which shaped your personality and becoming the actual person that you are, the being you were before all the programming shaped you into a working model. The more you become yourself, the more inspiration, guidance and knowledge you can receive from the higher realms, for only when you are truly yourself can you receive and perfectly resonate with the wisdom that lives within you.

The Ascension process that led to 2012 has completed. We no longer are preparing for the New Age to come, for now it’s 2013 and what we have been waiting for is here, NOW. We have graduated from graduate school and we are living the life that we have anticipated for decades. Can you not feel the momentum? Do you not see the grace within which we live? We equate the word lesson with a learning process or sometimes even a punishment. We have to learn our lessons or we suffer them over and over. How many times have we heard and said that? In 2013 we are no longer here to suffer, we are here to EXPERIENCE.

experienceEverything that exists on Earth is a spark of a Divine Source that created life in order that it may experience all aspects of duality, high and low, good and bad. Each of us is allowing those events to be created…a myriad of unique combinations of circumstances. Therefore, everything we’ve passed through in our lives, whether we label it positive or negative, is only an experience. When we are having a difficult time, ego is diminished and it is then that we are able, if we so choose, to break through the wall of our ego so that we may grow and evolve spiritually. It is then that we acknowledge what has occurred and determine that we need not meet with it again. Therefore, what we call learning experiences or negative aspects of our lives are really blessings in disguise, for without them we would not take those accelerated steps down the path towards knowing ourselves and after all, that is our goal in life–what we are doing while we are here. The pain we might endure along the way is merely the resistance we create to the process of stepping into the unknown. The funny part it is not the unknown, for it is from whence we came.

Dear Light workers, do not think for a moment that you are the only ones living through unwanted experiences. There are many others going through the same thing. The difference being that light workers are able to release lower energies and transmute them into pure light, in other words healing, and by working with higher beings and the gifts of Divine Grace, we no longer hold on to the unwanted aspects of our lives…instead we may embrace the beauty and magic that is our legacy.

Let us not belittle or diminish ourselves by assuming that we need reprimanding or punishment for choices we have made in the past. Instead let us realize that we had a variety of experiences in our lives, all of which led us to who we are now and all of which should be treasured as part of us. Be yourself and connect with your higher self. Bask in the magnificent life that lies before you.

You don’t have to win, you already have.

The Frequency of Gratitude

A national holiday of Thanksgiving is observed in Canada on the second Monday in October, and in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. Several countries around the world celebrate a similar holiday – a day set aside to be thankful. The high vibrational energy of gratitude is something that will greatly benefit those who consciously embrace it, and embody it…every day.

gratitude2Embracing and maintaining the feeling of gratitude produces a high-frequency vibration, creating a perpetual petition for positive experiences. As we embody a living prayer of gratitude, we draw forth good things – like a magnet attracting success.

It is imperative that one is thankful for the good fortune that has surfaced in life, for this will maintain the flow. By the same token, it is also important to be grateful for that which a person has a desire to create in life, as if it has already manifested. Feeling gratitude for something we want to bring forth in our life draws it to us, as a significant point of attraction.

On the other side of this “coin”, when we worry, we draw forth that which we are worrying about. For that reason, when we find ourselves fretting about a possible unfortunate outcome, it is imperative that we replace anxiety with gratitude for what we want to experience in our life, rather than worry about something that we don’t want to manifest in our future. We can do this by being conscious of our thoughts. Our feelings help us to do that: When we don’t feel centered (good), it is an opportunity to take a look at our thoughts, for they will reveal what we are worrying about, enabling us to shift to a new stream of thoughts about something pleasurable. We maintain a high frequency when we are centered… feeling good.

creatorsCreating the environment we desire requires us to be conscious; otherwise, we are creating according to our subconscious programs, repeating patterns over and over again. We are creators, and as such, always creating with our thoughts and feelings. Albert Einstein is credited with saying “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” When we allow our subconscious programs to run our life, we are creating the same, or similar, experiences over and over again. We have the ability to change these programs via affirmations, visualizations, and hypnosis (self-hypnosis or hypnosis guided by another) to name a few. It is imperative that we incorporate our feelings during this process, as they are the fuel. In other words, what would if feel like to be healthy? What would if feel like to be wealthy? What would it feel like to have healthy, harmonious relationships? Embrace the feeling! Visualizing, repeating affirmations and experiencing hypnosis without feelings is like trying to drive an automobile without fuel.

Wallace D. Wattles wrote his book, The Science of Getting Rich, over a century ago. The same principles apple today:

First, you believe that there is one Intelligent Substance, from which all things proceed; second, you believe that this Substance gives you everything you desire; and third, you relate yourself to it by a feeling of deep and profound gratitude.

Gratitude alone can keep you looking toward the All, and prevent you from falling into the error of thinking of the supply as limited; and to do that would be fatal to your hopes.

There is a Law of Gratitude, and it is absolutely necessary that you should observe the law, if you are to get the results you seek.

The law of gratitude is the natural principle that action and reaction are always equal, and in opposite directions.

The grateful outreaching of your mind in thankful praise to the Supreme is a liberation or expenditure of force; it cannot fail to reach that to which it was addressed, and the reaction is an instantaneous movement towards you.

We have been given the ability to create our world in harmony with the Divine. I urge you to use your God-given gift… and, of course, feel gratitude for it.

 

Be joyful, embrace life and thrive!

With love,

Randy

 

Illuminate the World

Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, you owe me…

Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky!” … Hafiz

 

I just love this quote, it says so much in those few words, short and sweet and filled with beauty! I feel very good indeed when I read it, offering me an image of such a loving, giving, kind, smiling sun that always shines, no matter what! So why does it feel so good I ask myself? I suppose I never really thought that way about the star that shines so brightly 24/7, day in and day out, relentlessly sharing its light with all that it encounters, having no demands on receiving a ‘thank you’ or a recognition or praise in any way. We are so quick to take our beautiful sun for granted, awakening each day to its light, to its warmth, to its shining in full glory (well sometimes hiding behind the clouds hehe). And if it is hidden by some grey clouds, we complain and moan about it and hope that a re-appearance is made real soon!

 

So how can we adopt this awareness in our everyday lives. It seems like a tall order doesn’t it?! Well, at least let’s be open to the possibility of it in some shape or form! It certainly encouraged me to think about myself and my life in a different way, reaching for the realisation that it feels good to shine from the inside out with love, offering light and warmth without expecting anything in return, just doing it because I want to. I have been blessed along my journey to have encountered some ‘bright, shining suns’ and, I have to say, they make this quote seem like it was written for them! It is such a wonderful experience to spend time in their company, NEVER expecting anything in return, loving who they are and what they do.  What I have noticed is that, when you experience this kind of unconditional love, you thrive! And, guess what, you start to become it yourself! It’s like you rise to the vibration and become like the energy that you are surrounded by, it is very interesting indeed! The illumination of the person seems to ignite the light within you and this offers you an opportunity to become like the sun yourself, revealing your true essence!

 

So really, the concept of this quote is to ask yourself what you can bring to the world rather than what you can get from it! How can YOU share your light, what can YOU do that will brighten up somebody’s day? What are your gifts and talents that you, and you alone, have that are just bursting to be shared and enjoyed! The planet is waiting to be illuminated by YOU, the choice is yours! Keep in mind that this doesn’t mean that you neglect yourself either… in order to give 100% of yourself, you must feel 100% fulfilled. In fact, it seems to be an automatic thing that, when you feel fully filled, you just overflow naturally! And, here’s the thing, when you give with an open heart, the Universe will conspire to the nature of your song and shower you with all the love in the world! It’s totally MAGIC…

 

So, together, let’s ILLUMINATE THE WORLD!!!

 

Love from me, Marie X
