Although courage should be a virtue, it is a value.
There is an ever present need for courage as spiritual growth is imminent. Courage rides on the shoulders of movement through the practice and pursuit of the Heart Virtues. It is the inflammatory sense of evolving that pushes us forward at this time into unknown territory which is heart centered, manifesting mindfulness and clarity. These are tough times, and like it or not you must indeed expand to meet the needs of your evolution through proper discernment.
Courage is stepping into mastery which starts as a conscious connection with the heart. Courage is not a mind generated attribute; it is a heart centered action inspired by the heart virtues. The heart virtues are the foundational concepts of the heart and courage is the activator and generator of the energy emitted by the virtues. This then enables the truth of ones being to be expressed and the atmosphere of healing to egress. With each step of healing there is peaceful prose compelling clarity and connection with ones higher state of being. It is also at these times that you have the experience of resonating with the higher frequency of love. This process of living the heart virtues through courage and connection leads one to a masterful bond with, and an enlightened perspective of, higher states of consciousness. Only in this state of being can one connect with love. As a carrier of this consciousness, grace emanates from you to those who may need the energy and vibration to assist them with connecting to the frequency of love, thus finding their own path towards heart centered awareness and courage.
There has never been a more pressing time than now for ever increasing conscious awareness to connect with the inner self or soul. This requires courage for when one ventures into the truth of who you really are, it is beholden to your purpose.
The need and desire to find peace is challenging during these times of influx and change. The outside world is merely a mirror of the inner voice of strength or struggle. When peace abides, there is completion. This may be indicative of healing, the instigation of the hearts virtues, or both. Peace also flies on the wings of acceptance and heart-full innovation both of which can happen simultaneously or sedentary in sequence. It is without question that attaining peace takes courage.
Life is an ever evolving journey and to live it in these times requires faith, trust, and belief imbued by and in line with the courage to live and engage the heart virtues.
Be Well, Be Love ❤️
T’is the season to be happy, healthy, and whole!
The season of gratitude and thanksgiving has just passed leading into the season of love and acceptance with the season of new beginnings to follow after that. There is a reason for the alignment of the seasons to follow each other, one after the other at the end of the year and beginning of the next. The seasons follow the succession of the integration of the heart virtues leading up to the harvest of the work you have done internally through the year.
This has been an extremely challenging year of change and transformation; cleansing, healing, clarifying, purging, and refining the spiritual nature of your being. There are some that have had a difficult time transforming their lives into clarity and alignment with what is going on within. This is the nature of the spirit; to evolve, grow and expand into another higher and more expressive vibration of love and peace. This cannot be accomplished unless the spiritual work is done within first, through the healing process of removing resistance to ‘what is’ that can be transformed into light.
The lessons that lead to this wondrous journey are called heart virtues. There is a willingness that one must have to walk the path of the heart virtues and the succession of awareness that is built each step of the way leading you on to the next virtue to uncover any resistance (fear) that your past programming reveals to you along the way. The journey sounds complex, but it doesn’t have to be. The part that is most difficult is the judgement and resistance that reveals itself when there is a conflict of interest. These are the pockets of stored information from early installations of experiences you did not know what to do with, and so it was tucked away where it is not consciously dealt with unless something happens to trigger that information. That brings the information to the conscious mind and is revealed and brought to the surface for contemplation and healing. The virtues of compassion, forgiveness, understanding, and humility can transmute this information turning it to love through understanding the true lesson and purpose of the information. There is something to be gained by this information no matter what it is, and sometimes it is merely the reinforcement of the virtues that are learned and practiced through the revelation of the stored information. This process continues as you convert your judgements and resistance to love through the virtues of:
There is nothing that cannot be transformed into the higher vibration of love through the practice, implementation, and integration of the heart virtues within your being.
May this season of love bring you the happiness, joy, and peace that resides within a healed heart and divine mind.
Be Well, Be Love ♥
As one of the heart virtues, compassion is the expression that is needed most in the now.
We are in a time of mixed emotions. There are those that wish harm and suffering on as many as possible. These are the ones that have not healed internally and have looked outside of themselves for relief through beliefs that harming others will lead to their redemption. Healing is an internal process and one that can be extremely overwhelming. Depending on the programming one has endured, it is difficult to know where to start. This cannot be done without internal asking which creates guidance and direction from ones’ higher self. With conscious awareness one can ‘hear’ the answers within and healing can begin.
It is not easy to watch those we love struggle to evolve. If you have awakened the heart virtues within, your spirit knows how to tune into compassion that will be for the highest and best good of all concerned. Your conscious awareness of the peaceful prose that the heart virtues effectuate, can lead to understanding the suffering that is happening around you. If a desire arises to express pity on those that are suffering, the heart will call forth compassion instead, for pity is judgement and does not contain any love. You can assist those involved with finding the truth, which is where all suffering starts. Suffering is a call out to begin healing, for one cannot suffer if there is clarity and wellness within.
The emotion that is called upon (without judgement) is compassion. This expression of love is a very powerful grace that envelops those you focus upon, and assists with activating their spiritual center leading them to clarity. This is the purpose of the expression of compassion, and active internal representation of the heart virtues. When you are living these virtues, you are expressing your life through your heart and vibrating to the frequency of light and the energy of love.
The process of becoming aware of your compassionate thoughts happens with the activation of the Divine Mind. This is the conscious awareness of feeling what you are thinking with your heart. This can only happen with the transfiguration of the heart by activating the heart virtues. This leads to conscious awareness of your thoughts and calling upon your heart to ‘think good thoughts’ leading to the Unity of Oneness where all healing and clarity occurs. This is how you can be a force for good in the world and assist those that are lost and confused. This is your prose and purpose as an awakened heart when witnessing suffering.
The graceful act of gratitude for the assistance you provide those in need using the heart virtues through Divine Mind, brings more of the energy of love to the world. This is what will provide the healing necessary, and to assist those that capable of being able to take the actions necessary to make a difference and create change. These are the ways to be the change you want to see in the world.
Be Well, Be Love ♥
Things continue to get more interesting! There is so much distraction, that creating division seems to be the norm. This keeps you from focusing on what really matters. It is all designed to pull you from your Center and slow your spiritual growth to stop the evolution of your soul. The good news is that this is Divinely designed to strengthen your internal resolve and challenge you to practice and anchor the heart virtues to further manifest who you really are; which is a powerful spiritual being. This is what these times are for!
Tolerance, gratitude, and compassion are key expressions for the current time. Knowing that you can make a difference, while working within the virtues, is key to your personal evolution. There may be many things that are happening now that you may not be able to do anything about, yet being centered and balanced within your heart at all times will assist more than you know! This is the strength of love that is needed now to assist others in their processes. It is not an easy task, but it is the greatest act of love one can put forth!
One thing to remember above all else is that there are no accidents or mistakes, and everything is designed for spiritual growth and refinement. It isn’t as complicated as it seems; our minds and egos make it seem so. Find that place of peace within through the heart virtues. That’s where true peace resides.
Be Well, Be Love ♥
Stepping out of the mind (ego) and into the heart puts love into all that you think, do, and say. This creates an energy of change, transformation and upliftment that goes out to all you are in contact with. It affects the world at large as a ripple in a pond from a drop of water. It does not matter where you are; it is felt and expands. Love does not dissipate, for it gets stronger as it is released. Love creates a ‘crack’ for light to enter when it encounters a closed off situation [person]. When the light enters the situation [person] it seeks out love and expands it.
When you are living from the heart [heart virtues] you are emanating love. You cannot help but create change for yourself and others when you are in this state of being. Each virtue begets each one, and it works the same in others in the form of light. Love is light. It seeks a way in and finds the source of truth and expands upon that. Love and truth are both light. Truth carries in it an aspect of love that generates light and it expands love to shed light on anything where it is present. When truth is spoken, it carries love to all that hear it. This love/light (LL)in the form of truth carries with it all aspects of the heart virtues to create healing and transformation to all within its reach. This light then plants seeds of itself and expands to evolve anything that is of a lower vibration. All benefit from this experience for when LL is shared it strengthens the source and evolution takes place.
We are all here to evolve. Our hearts seek out all opportunities to assist us with our evolution. This is done by giving and receiving LL. These sparks of LL exist all around us and we are always seeking it out. When we create opportunities to give LL, our expansion is greater than when we struggle to receive it. Struggle is of a lower vibration and it signals an opportunity for healing. LL highlights the struggle, for it illuminates that which needs to heal. Lower vibrations do not stand a chance when LL is present! The lower vibration is forever changed as the alchemy of the frequency of the love mixed with the lower expression automatically changes it. That is why there are some who are entrenched in their sadness or grief that may not want to be around someone who is trying to help (love) them. It matters not because your thoughts can carry the same LL energy to them.
When you ‘think’ love it does not have the energy of love. It is only when you feel the thought from the heart that it has the LL energy. All intention that is put forth when laced with love from the heart, will manifest the desired outcome. Intention underlies all that you think, do, and say. When you understand that you will understand the meaning your life carries. Living from heart centered consciousness reveals to you the truth of your being and enlightens your life!
Be Well, Be Love ♥
Alignment with the highest expression of yourself is imperative at this time.
The chaos that ensues is happening within everyone that has not worked within to heal and connect to the heart. The current time is forged with despair and courageous deeds. It is a time of heightened acts and concerns of the ego, as the ego fights for its place in the world. The energy being created by this egoic sense of panic puts forth separation consciousness. This is far from being connected to ones’ heart, as the ego pines to be in charge thus eliminating Unity Consciousness that is the true power.
As more confusion is created to appeal to the ego, peace and alignment with what really matters to allow the truth to surface is diminished. This creates opportunity to go within and determine why you feel the importance of fighting for separation consciousness; if that is indeed what you are allowing in your current consciousness. Peace is found through surrendering the need to fight and not allowing the ego to create your experience. Allowing everything in the illusion that exists to unfold naturally and as it will, creates the support from your heart to trust that all will all be aligned with the perfect will of Spirit. This current time calls out to the heart to step into its power with the Heart Virtues in full force! None of these virtues call for ‘taking sides’ or elevating egoic consciousness. The more that you step into the power of the heart, the more truth will be allowed to come forth. The more you fight with the ego consciousness, the more delays and confusion will perpetuate. This is not what this time is about. It is about staying true to your power to contribute to the healing and wellness within and align with Unity Consciousness. The fluctuation of energy that is taking place is nothing more than distraction being generated, to feed the egoic centers of the few to keep things copesetic and unbalanced.
It is up to us as heart centered beings to be the ones that stay centered in peace and tranquility to support truth and unity, knowing we can change the world.
As you join with your truth, it will expand to create trust. Trust has within it the component necessary to effectuate the energy needed for change. This is the cycle that is meant to be at this time. Knowing this deep within your being will elevate your frequency match with love and expand that energy to counteract the chaos that exists.
It is imperative that you find the disparity that may be perpetuated by your own judgement that is being stimulated with the current time of change and evolution. We are being tested to find out where we are as humans that finally have a voice to express our current state of being. Shall this be lost to the Pied Piper? Have we done all the work within only to allow ourselves to be judge and jury? This does not mean that we cannot effectuate change if we surrender the egoic responses that are being stimulated. This means that we can exude our power from the spiritual nature we have that is our innate sense of being, and that is who we really are! If we each choose to support that which is truth, we will have chosen to evolve within our true nature and goodness will prevail. That is a promise made within the structure of our true purpose during this time of change.
Be Well, Be Love ♥
There is much to be thankful for during this season of peace and contentment. So much has transpired and it seems that everything is changing, or will be.
The changes that have taken place have opened new pathways to connect your heart with your mind. Some of these changes have ‘the ego on the run’ and glimpses of contentment can be found within.
A new-found connection and understanding of the 8 heart virtues (compassion, understanding, forgiveness, gratitude, appreciation, valor, acceptance, and allowing) is the bridge from the state of change to peace and contentment. There is much to be said for embracing change without fear and resistance. This is to say that during change the ego may create CCC (crisis, chaos, conflict); as it may want to create suffering through resistance when change is present. Peace and contentment can be found under the rocks of CCC, for change is inevitable through this alchemy.
There are two opportunities with any change that is presented. One is resistance and the other is expansion. One offers suffering while the other creates opportunity for healing and spiritual attainment. Every opportunity that change presents is duly suited for a clearer connection to your Higher Self through a vibrational equivalent. Processing change starts within the mind and completes within the heart. This then instills clarity of being and elevates your frequency match with your Higher Self. There are no shortcuts around growth and expansion, and this is why you are here.
As you accept change within your life the blessings come forward. These are the harbingers of peace and contentment. When one cannot find the blessings within a situation of change, there is resistance. Resistance comes from the ego and cannot be transmuted. Change would not appear in your life if you weren’t ready or didn’t call it forth. Change is intrinsic to life and vice versa. Some changes are welcome, and some are not. All change creates hidden opportunity for expansion. There cannot be change without expansion, even with resistance. Resistance shows you where change needs to take place. That is a blessing! Resistance is tied to the ego which accesses the place within you that needs to be healed. If one decides not to proceed with change, the resistance within will grow. This will lead to another form of change being presented to you with more facets. Faceted changes are more likely to create CCC. This is where change can become unmanageable. Starting with and practicing the 8 heart virtues will aid one in this situation breaking apart the faceted change to more manageable parts.
There is nothing that cannot be healed through the Heart Virtues! The heart restores all life and blesses ones being. The heart tempers the ego without struggle, and imparts a new dimension of goodness to its processes. When this happens, new pathways open within that lead to living peace and contentment. This then, allows you to expand your experience to include more complex forms of change that add to the flavor of your journey!
Be Well, Be Love ♥
What is happiness? Where does it come from? Is it a state of mind or does it come from the heart?
Happiness is a state of being as true happiness is generated from the heart. Happiness is found when there is a state of peace that exists within. The expression of peace is happiness.
Peace is the natural state of the heart. When the heart is activated and healing has (or is in the process) of taking place, peace is the state of consciousness the heart reflects. The synergy between the mind and the heart must be clear and in divine repose. If the ego is active, its ‘job’ is to prevent peace from happening. The egos job is to prevent healing from taking place. Its function is to create crisis, chaos, and conflict (see previous posts ), as its purpose is to uphold and strengthen the illusion of separation.
When all parts of ones being are in harmony, happiness and peace are the by product and glorious state of being. This means that you cannot truly be pulled from your center. At this stage, it is of the utmost to stay in alignment with this vibration to connect with the highest consciousness of your being to assist others with their processes. You become a beacon of hope, and your frequency meets that of enlightenment and ascension. This state of being is important to all of humanity, as it accelerates healing and connectivity to the hearts of all ones currently on the same path.
If your heart is activated from healing and is restored to its divine state of creation, its love is brought forth and the ego mind cannot withstand the frequency. This amalgamation transforms the ego into divine mind. This state of holiness becomes your natural state of being and from this place you can create miracles!
The reality of this state of being is the ‘mustard seed’ of truth, and the vibration of truth cannot be withheld. Truth only speaks to itself and when it is present, healing and clarity can come forth. Truth is the first step of deep healing and restoration. Truth happens outside of the illusion that is separation. True love cannot exist without truth, and nothing that is not of truth can exist within the current frequency and vibration.
When you heal within, you find your truth. When you find your truth, you activate your heart. When you activate your heart, you radiate love. When you radiate love, you transform your mind. When your mind and heart work as one, you create peace within. This state of consciousness emanates within and without as happiness!
Be Well, Be Love ♥
Seeing is believing and trusting is believing without seeing. To rise above the ego mind and trust is far more difficult than anything …. other than faith. Faith and trust are very similar in that there is no proof that they exist. Trust is a value as is faith, and both come from the same place, the heart.
Why should you develop trust? Trust allows the truth to come forward and faith allows you to believe in it. Trust is really in one’s self, as you are the one who allows it. You must believe in yourself and your heart to be fully connected to trust. If you trust someone else, you have faith [believe] in them enough to trust them [truth]. If you trust a situation or event will turn out the way you want it to, you must first know your part in it as you must be in perfect truth for the outcome to be assured. There is another side to this as well in that you must always trust that things will be as they are meant to be, and only 100% of the time! There are no accidents or mistakes and all is on perfect timing and task. This is how the Universe was created, and when you trust in its perfection and have faith in your process, everything in your life will reflect that power [love].
Trust and faith put the 10 heart virtues into action. Without these foundational values nothing else will work. Trust and faith are facets of love. For example, forgiveness is rooted in love with faith that you trust yourself to believe in the forgiveness you are enacting. Compassion and understanding are an extension of love trusting that it will be received and make a difference. Each virtue carries with it love consciousness [through the heart] with trust and faith as the processors. As your awareness of this increases the more powerful your heart virtues become, and you turn into a mighty beacon of light and love!
With trust and faith there are no mistakes. Since these values work with the heart in the pure expression of truth, there can be no mistakes; as mistakes are only an illusion of the ego mind used to create fear and project weakness. When one is working with truth, the ego mind is not active and cannot create the illusion of mistakes or weakness, as truth is strength and directly connected to and operating from the heart.
The vibration of truth is such that it corrects all things existing within a situation or process and cannot be diluted. This means that truth is without ‘mistakes’ (sic) and love is its foundation. When truth is expressed, trusted, and believed it cannot uphold any illusion. This means that reality is based on truth and illusion is created and maintained from the ego mind. When you can trust your heart and have faith in yourself you live in truth and your reality is without illusion. The reflections of ego such as fear, dismay, sadness, degradation, anger, and disillusionment cannot reside in a heart conscious being. This is the key to your spiritual evolution and your guidelines to living a life based in reality where only happiness, joy, and peace are the cornerstones of your existence.
Trust your heart and have faith in yourself.
Be Well, Be Love ♥
Change is a necessary part of evolution. The more difficult the change means that you are ready for a leap in your consciousness, and this shift is felt more within your heart.
You are entering a time where ‘heart consciousness’ is the next phase of your expansion. Feeling, reasoning, and living from heart centered consciousness is the pathway of the new heart centered existence. Setting the intention to flow with this transformation is the first step toward tuning in to, and opening the door to this wave of solidarity.
The saying ‘be the change you want to see in the world’ is truly the reflection of ‘as within, so without’. The progression of your life has been riddled with challenges of all kinds, but these were growth steps in your development to bring you to this place, here and now. Change is challenging, and the current changes are connected to the truth coming to the forefront of your awareness. All change at this time is meant for you to become conscious of the awareness that resides within reflected in what you see, hear, and do. The discovery of this connection reveals to you the advent that oneness is everything connected to everything. The purpose that underlies your development and growth creates the change that you experience, and are experiencing now. There are no accidents or mistakes. Your reaction to change sets off the next steps in your evolution. The electromagnetic response you emit draws to you the next set of events to further your cause, or change your course. When you have reached the conclusion of a growth cycle, change is signaled to start a new cycle. This new cycle is the next step in your evolutionary process, which is at this time related to what your path of service in this lifetime truly is.
Allowing change to assist you with your spiritual awakening is the key to the metamorphosis of your life. As was mentioned in an earlier post, aligning the heart with the mind was a step toward initiating this new reality within. When the heart and the mind are melded and operating as one, changes of all kinds will initiate bringing your life new meaning and saturating your being with the light of new awareness. When the change that comes upon you is accepted with understanding and humility, you are opening your heart to the next level of consciousness. This does not mean that it is easy, as this is a major transformation of shifting from an ego centered life to a heart centered life! Allowing this to flow within your being will fill you with the grace of acceptance and well being.
Be Well, Be Love ♥
