“Instead of seeing your past as it had wounded you, realize that it made you strong. Your battle scars are proof that no matter how hard life had become that you overcame it. You are a much stronger person today than you were yesterday. Use your past as a way to show people how to have courage for themselves. You are now a role model. You are not a victim.
We were not meant to go through all these challenges just to give up today. You are who you are; and you are as strong as you can be because of what happened to you in your past. The trials and tribulations could have broken you but they did not.
Instead your challenges created a much stronger person in you; and now you are the Wounded Warrior.”
Twelve traits you may have if you like spending time with yourself.
“My dear friends, we love you so very much,
For every choice, the soul knows there is a vibrational consequence. For every action, there is a ripple of energy that travels throughout the universes. With every thought, a vibration is experienced throughout creation. There is nothing ever said, done, or thought without affecting the entire cosmos.
You are that important! Your thoughts, words, and deeds are important – each and every one of them.
With every loving thought, word, or deed, you elevate the cosmos. With every self-punishing thought, word, or deed, you block the love of the Source and instead attract others who would willingly take out their pain on you as well.
Can you imagine a world in which there was no self-deprecation, no self-punishment, no self-criticism, but only self-love?
Can you imagine a world in which a mistake is not punished, by rather met with a simple explanation of the consequences and a loving guide to help you through navigate these consequences and learn from them?
Can you imagine a world in which criminals were not loathed but rather seen as needing compassion, education, and a loving system to remove them from harming others, and reform them?
Can you imagine a world in which you looked in the mirror each morning and said to yourself, ‘Good morning precious, beautiful, divine soul? Whether you meet your goals today or not, you are trying. Whether you feel your best or not, you are no less Divine! I love you dear God within me! I love me, my human self. I will do my best today.’ Can you imagine?
Your world would return to being the school of love and diverse expression that it was originally meant to be.
What if, for example, when your children were acting out or misbehaving you were to avoid yelling, screaming, angry reactions and instead say calmly, ‘I love you, but we don’t behave that way. If you continue I will have to take you to your room for a timeout.’
What if, for example, instead of killing your war criminals, you required them to see the painful results of their actions in families, nations, and individuals so they could witness the suffering of humanity that they triggered, rather than simply returning hate for hate. Even the hardest hearts eventually melt when they witness enough suffering, and only then will the soul have incentive to emerge. If you go to any of your war memorials on this earth today, you will see visitors from ‘both sides’ on only one side – the side of love – with tears on their eyes, realizing that humanity must not repeat the atrocities of the past.
You can kill a soul. You cannot kill the spirit within it. You cannot kill an ideology. Until the spirit learns – truly learns – that hurting another hurts one’s self, there will be no true change. Enlighten your criminals dear ones. Show them that their pain has caused another’s. Let the common bond of your humanity unite you rather than allowing the darkness of hatred to divide you.
So, what does this mean for you, in your every day, personal life?
As always you start with yourselves. You change the world vibrationally, by changing your own reactions and behaviors. You become less punishing, less critical, less hateful towards self and others. You look in the mirror and congratulate yourself for being on earth. When you make a mistake, you give yourself a hug (quite literally!) and tell your inner self, ‘It’s ok. Let us just do better next time. What can we learn here?’
When you see someone on the news who has committed heinous crimes against humanity, instead of saying, ‘How could you, you monster, you beast! You deserve to be punished! You deserve to be tortured! You deserve to die!’ … instead you say, ‘My God I am so sorry for the horrible pain inside of you that drives you to behave in such unthinkable ways.’
You pray for the elevation of their soul. You surround them with light. You imagine the light rising up within them.
You can easily become part of the solution instead of vibrationally solidifying the problem. Hate cannot cure hate. Un-evolved reactions cannot cure un-evolved behaviors. Only love, dear ones, Divine love – the kind that can bear witness silently to the invisible kernel of light within each soul – only this can cure the world’s darkness and pain.
As your dear Gandhi said, ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world.’
Treat yourself with loving kindness. Stop punishing yourselves and others with hatred and anger. Instead elevate yourselves and others by bearing witness to the invisible light within, by being compassionate even when realizing the consequences of un-evolved behaviors, and by praying and sending love to all hurting hearts.
In this fashion, dear ones, you WILL change the world, starting with yourselves first.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
— The Angels”
How could I possibly explain the great freedom that comes from realizing to the depth of your being that life knows what it’s doing? Only direct experience can take you there.
At some point there’s no more struggle, just the deep peace that comes from surrendering to a perfection that is beyond your comprehension. Eventually, even the mind stops resisting, and the heart loses the tendency to close.
The joy, the excitement, and freedom are simply too beautiful to give up. Once you are ready to let go of yourself, life becomes your friend, your teacher, your secret lover. When life’s way becomes your way, all the noise stops, and there is a great peace.”
The Surrender Experience, Michael Singer, Harmony Books, 2015, page 252.
“With an understanding of the Laws of the Universe and some willingness to deliberately choose thoughts, you can, in time, replace all hindering beliefs with life-giving beliefs; but there is a process that can give you the immediate benefit of changing your beliefs, in a much shorter time—we call this the Process of Meditation.
The Process of Meditation is not one where you work on your desires, but, instead, this is one of quieting your mind. As you do so, and resistance will subside; and your state of vibration will rise to its natural, pure state.”
