Hello dear ones and welcome. I know that as many of you read the newspapers, or listen to the news on the radio or the TV, you might be noticing that there is a sort of see-saw effect that is taking place in the world at this time. Some months ago, the Arab Spring, and other revolutions, ushered in what was hoped to be a new time of free thinking and economic growth and yet now it seems that the fighting has returned and many of the voices are calling for a return to more restrictive thinking. Your leaders cannot seem to come to agreement on anything…and while your worldwide financial situation seems to be improving, there are still millions, upon millions out of work and suffering.
You may look at these things and try to figure out “how did things get to this place.” Even within your own relationships you may notice that one day you may feel so close to your loved ones – and they to you – and then the next day there is tension and problems that seem to come out of nowhere, or when they come from somewhere they are so much bigger then you think they should be.
I tell you dear ones that this is a very special energetic period and you are feeling what I could best describe as the waves of love and the undertow of fear. You may all be aware that when the ocean brings to the beach some of the biggest waves, it creates a relationship in the sands below it called undertow. The sand at the beach floor is actually being carried back out to sea by the swirling pressure of the wave that is hitting the beach…and being pulled back. When someone is in the water they can literally be pulled out into the ocean by these waves. This is actually a part of how most beings exist because all of you are very much made up of water – and water contains electrical impulses that assist in the magnetic process of carrying messages to the brain and then back again to the body. All of this happens in a nano-second, but the effect is similar at the personal level as it is on the worldwide level. The only difference is that when this process hits a certain tipping point of people then it becomes a movement – which is nothing more then a collective thought.
So much like a wave – a single person has a thought and shares it with another. That thought may come from the heart or the brain of the first person – and as it is shared it will come from the brain or the heart of others who share it. I say the brain or heart to differentiate between a cognitive thought and an emotional thought. Both are very powerful, but the emotional thought brings with it more energy and more magnetic pull that allows for faster manifestation. Here is where the see-saw effect takes place. A group of people begin to think in a similar manner that change is needed in their lives and as those people begin to become more emotional about this thought it gains power and momentum just like waves in the ocean. As they begin to manifest themselves into a “breaking” thought – a clear manifestation of action around the thought – just like a breaking wave, then the undertow of fear begins to begin to be created in those who do not agree with this frame of mind. And the energy of this undertow is then carried out to the collective thought (the ocean) where it begins to build power as the emotions of the first group begin to relax by their feelings of fulfillment of their thought and emotion. Now the second group moves their thought from fear – to voice – to power and then it “breaks” as a wave of energy or change and the undertow of the fear of the first group starts their movement back to sea.
The recent hurricane “Sandy” that hit the East Coast of the United States and the countries below it was an example, however, of what happens when thought becomes so powerful that it “breaks” in ways that immerse everything and everyone! These are the situations when one group becomes so strong that their “wave of change” destroys everything in sight and the undertow of fear is so strong that it becomes buried in the sands. This is what you see happen when one group “bullies” another group and makes them so powerless that they are unable to raise the energy to create a new “wave” of change.
So what then you might ask is the answer – and I tell you dear ones that there is only one – love! Love for all things, for all people, for our friends, for our families and for our perceived enemies as well. I say “perceived” because you all are one energy that comes from the same place and your perceptions of others are purely based on those things that you have been taught by those that you trusted to speak “truth.”
But in real truth, you all come here seeking the same things. You seek to be loved and cherished. You seek to laugh and explore the wonders of the world around you. You seek to be fed and nourished and cuddled and you seek to be led and taught by those that you can trust so that you can feel secure! Think about it – how different is what you seek today from those things that you sought when you were a baby. I tell you that those primal needs are always present and as you grow you place your trust in other teachers, and they often mislead because they have been misled. And when you are misled your first instinct is to hate the misleader and not to trust as easily again…and each time this occurs this mistrust grows until finally your heart is unable to trust.
So you begin to seek leaders, knowing that you don’t really trust any of them, but this one is the “lesser of two evils.” Or you place your beliefs in books that are claimed to be the “truth and nothing but the truth” so you have something that will allow you to feel certainty…something that will allow you to keep your head above water so that your wave of belief will not get pulled into the undertow of doubt and fear.
The answer to this is so simple dear ones for there is a form of thought that does not bring the fierce wave of change or the fearful pull of the undertow. It is a thought that you might call prayer – or even some might call it meditation. It is a place of loving oneself – and sending thoughts of love to the rest of the world – in a truly heartfelt manner. Prayer of this kind – to whomever you might pray – or to the simple power of the meditation – does more to calm the craziness of the constant ebb and flow of the seas of change brought on by one sided waves of thought.
But I offer you this test and this guarantee – yes I did say guarantee. Pick a person that you have a conflict with and pray for them – truly from your heart! Ask for them to find peace and love and all of the wonderful things that they could ever imagine. Think about them surrounded in goodness and joy and I promise you that if you think this way and do this daily for one solid month – you will find huge changes in your relationship with that person – and they will notice great changes in their life. It is impossible for it not to happen for you are harnessing the power of love and calming the waters of self centered emotion while at the same time halting the undertow of fear.
Start this with one person…that is how everything starts anyway!
Go in peace and love,
