Valentine’s Day is a perfect day to remind people that it is through the power of love—universal love– that we will heal relationships and unravel conflict in this world. Coincidentally, I was born on Valentine’s Day and it is my passion to share my insights and thoughts about how love can change the world if we will only let it! Choosing love is the answer for all decisions. Unfortunately, the ego has strategies to cover its neediness and these strategies block the very love everyone desires. The ego, in its goal to always be right cannot find humility, courage, or other worthy qualities stemming from love. Therefore, the ego cannot take a stand for truth or have the courage to be to be or do the right thing in difficult circumstances.

Universal love is the source of everything and is the power that sustains all life. It can be counted on in all circumstances. It is internal and eternal and never wavers. You can be sure when you rely on love because it shines away all doubt, strengthens your resolve, and confirms your intentions. Love limits nothing and controls no one, so when you find yourself trying to control people or circumstances you can know you are in the world of the ego. When you feel despair, remember that love builds hope and faith, and fortifies your strength. Love provides comfort to you and others and has an endless supply. Why would we be stingy with love–our source and our strength?

In its purest form, love flourishes despite uncertainty and dissolves all fear. Love can move mountains and pave the way for a smooth journey. The amazing power of love abandons no one—not even your perceived enemies. It shines equally on everyone. Being both practical and masterful, it creates opportunities leading to fruition. Love does not shrink or cower in the face of obstacles. In fact, it clears all interference and amplifies all your efforts. Love is the very reason you exist. We need to envelop the world in love because love radiates peace and joy and that is what the world needs.

It is time to give up worries and concerns and recognize that they limit your power and energy. Learn to be patient with yourself and others. And come to know that love is enduring and can be counted on always. So, I suggest, be joyful and what you need will follow, not the other way around. The world believes you will be happy when you get what you need, but this is not true. When you align with love, your needs and desires will be met. Trust in that.

So where do you start? Families provide a golden opportunity because even in conflicted families there is a core of love–if you can unravel the layers. Loving people, even when they are different in some ways, can be an excellent practice for loving our fellow souls in all arenas on the planet. Start with your family and closest friends. Because, if we cannot heal our relationships with our family members and friends who we care about, how do we think we can heal communities, Congress, workplaces, or the world?

How do we do it? Challenge the little voice inside that tries to distract you and tries to make you feel separate from love and all others. Do not let it disturb your peace or allow it to perturb you. Any time you are irritated, it is coming from yourself, not another person. And when you are in sadness, irritation, or in confusion, you can listen to your inner authentic voice, coming from universal love, and not the selfish, conflicted ego. The inner voice, connected to universal love is so powerful, you can reach it at any time. You are never alone. It can be counted on to provide support and inner security in any situation or circumstance. Love is the source of peace and joy. The key is to be open and receptive, and trust that all you need will be given at every moment.

Be Steadfastly Awake January 6, 2021

Do you want to remain awake or do you want to stay lost in your dramas? A true being, your deepest self, is trying to emerge–without the silly little dramas and without the clinging to fear and inadequacies of your egoic self. The false images and small representations of who you are, are creations of the mind. The true being is trying to emerge–not the simpering child who is sniveling and winding his way to grief and pain. Seemingly plausible reasons for despair and suffering do not make them true and actually deny your rightful heritage. Compelling stories of disappointment, dashed hopes, painful losses, and on-going anxieties are chances to review your life anew, but when nurtured and held onto, can be excuses for staying small and denying your true spiritual power. The rejection of your true self, your inner spiritual essence, in favor of your small self is tragic. After seeing and experiencing who you really are, and then turning away, is a decrease in your power and a decline on your own path to awakening to your rightful place in the world.

Be steadfastly awake. Stand up fearlessly. Your power is so great that with the smallest nod, it brings you gifts and meets all your needs. And yet, you turn back to the painful position of the downtrodden. This habitual path of the underdog can be released when you acknowledge and affirm your desire to do so.   Why would you choose the wings of a sparrow over the wings of an eagle?

We are here with you and you are strong and wise—the one who chose to be here. Your clarity and true vision are needed and we will uphold you in your path upward. Please trust in that. You will be given guidance as you need it, in an instant, and you will find the joy of contributing full heartedly. Allow yourself to feel the deepest source that you are—the calm, grounded powerful ones that you, too often, deny. Build your strength and rise to the occasion. You are the beneficiary, as well as all whom you encounter. Blend your voice with ours and recognize your true destiny.

Most people are just trying to enjoy a life of some sort, or a trying to avoid pain. Choose to be a creator—choose to be the source and power of your life—not just an object tossed around in a tumultuous sea of confusion and alternating points of view. Stand up! Be strong. Be eloquent. Do not deny your gifts in favor of the opinions of those less awakened and living in fear. That is their choice. Do not let their opinion be your standards for living. Let go, let go.

Overcoming the feeling that life is difficult

Demand the small voice to stop. The weight of the beliefs from the past and the opinions of the masses can feel like you are coming out of a deep bog—a heavy body of murky water. See the image of yourself rising out of the swamp of human dissension, after this long period of swimming in the muck. How can you help others if you are drowning with them? You are needed as part of the evolutionary shift in consciousness.

Do not return to the sad stories. Do not be distracted with small issues, artificial charades, and shams created by the ego. Take charge of your own thoughts and keep telling a new story! No more tears, no more tears, no more tears. You are self-sufficient. Bless this day as you move on to new adventures in the unknown. Bless this day for the life you have been given. The power position is yours when you choose spiritual mastery!

You are a child of God, dedicated to Project Illumination. Do not ever forget this and continue to move persistently forward. Your seeming losses are gifts to expose wounds that need healing. Don’t be sad. Allow them to heal with compassionate grace for yourself. The future holds so much joy. Trust in this guidance and be alert for more messages of truth and vindication from guilt and suffering. Bless you, dear ones, for taking this walk on the planet at this time. Realize that you can receive guidance at every moment!

Project Illumination is not a small sideline — it is the purpose of your journey in this magnificent evolutionary planetary transformation! Join with the voices who are here to lead and to witness this time in history. Do not be deterred by appearances or seeming losses. All will be well as the unraveling continues, but ultimately, settles out. This necessary time is leading to the expansion of love, peace, and joy.

Trust in our loving guidance beside you. In this state, you can hear us clearly and follow our light of inspiration and divine words. Trust always that what we share with you benefits not only you, but all that you encounter. Share your messages freely and widely. Express with clarity, the path to freedom.

Aspire to new levels of contribution. Your powerful voices are needed. The crimes that are being committed in the name of peace, like poison, need to be diluted with an antidote. Corruption fueled by greed and fear has been underlying the social structure for centuries. Below the surface is a faction of individuals controlling the dialogues that are spurring hate. Badges of supremacy, claims of superiority, and accruements for those in power have tipped the balance to a level that is unsustainable. This has created mass inequality for people everywhere. The poverty exists because of the massive effort to keep people down and hopeless. The disruptions occurring now are a part of this enormous shift. It is your time. The world needs these messages in this time of havoc and fear. You are part of the enormous transformation occurring right now, even beyond what you can see or measure. Persevere with determination. Do not let heaviness, doubt, or thoughts of the past hold you back. Be unbridled, free, and relentlessness. You cannot exceed the possibilities–they are endless. There is no wrong direction — just step forward into the open, beautiful, future of the world.

Being a Leader of Strength and Humility December 13, 2020

Mr. Gannon, the well-respected business manager of a radiology practice in my city, was my first boss. I was a young, new marketing director. He was a red-headed, Irish Catholic man with 13 children, a strong character, and a dry wit. When he hired me, he instructed me to use all my best marketing ideas and strategies to market the practice in that area. He assured me he would support me, even if I made a mistake. He inspired me to be innovative, creative, and passionate. With his reassurance, I exceeded my own expectations. I was literally unafraid. Because I knew he always had my back, I soared under his leadership.

One day I made a terrible gaffe. While waiting for a meeting to start with all the radiologists, I pointed out an error on a bill that I thought was a small but humorous mistake. I did not realize that the same computer error had gone out to thousands of patients. After the meeting, Mr. Gannon called me to his office and asked me why I would humiliate him in that way. I was mortified. I was heartbroken. I tried to explain, and he told me to just go back to my office. I spent the next few hours worrying that I had shamed him, lost his faith in me, and that I was a terrible person. At some point, I realized that I was worrying more about what he thought of me than I was about how he felt, which was a humbling breakthrough for me. So now I just waited and took responsibility for my ignorance.

Finally, I looked up and he was standing there. He asked me to go for a walk, a common practice when we discussed marketing ideas. But this time he astonished me when he asked me for forgiveness! He apologized for being an old, prideful man. He added that he knew I had not embarrassed him on purpose. It was at this moment that I realized what an extraordinary man he was. He had the respect of the doctors, the hospitals, and the employees for his vision, his business skills, and his communication abilities. But his strength and humility were at the core of this man. He was a model of the qualities of what I call an enlightened leader. I dedicated my book to him, and though he passed on, I believe he knows that his story has inspired thousands of others.

During critical times in our national and world history, everyone agrees that we need strong leaders. Healthcare is clearly one of the most directly hit industries, with healthcare employees on the front lines, literally risking their lives daily. The surge of those contracting the virus is causing increased pressure on leaders who manage people, procedures, and the constant changes required to deal with this contagious disease. There are no simple answers, which is exactly why we need strong leaders we can trust to move us forward as swiftly and safely as possible. The fatigue and stress felt by people everywhere is intensified in healthcare.

Who You Are as a Leader

Being a leader of strength and humility is the key to guiding your team through troubled waters. An inner core of strength, rooted in love and affinity for others, is essential in these uncertain times. The deep wisdom from an infinite source needed to lead is not accessible to an artificial or weak leader. Doubt and fear are the underpinnings of ego-driven leaders and these leaders flail and collapse in a real crisis.

Humility is a trait that comes from alignment with the deepest, true self. Arrogance and superiority are attempts to mask insecurity and inner emptiness. When you lead from an ego, fear-based position, you impede communication and damage relationships. People who are genuinely supported tend to rise to the occasion, exceed expectations, and extend a caring attitude to patients and other employees. The calm reassurance of leaders rooted in a BE LOVE model of leadership is empowering in turbulent times. Great leaders shine a light on those they lead, in contrast to ego-driven leaders, who seek the spotlight for themselves.

Guidelines for Being a Leader of Strength and Humility

While there is no exact, linear path to great leadership–while working with leaders in a multitude of industries, studying, and writing about leadership–I found the following attributes in authentically empowered leaders:

  1. The ability to look within for fears, weaknesses, insecurities, misguided beliefs, and past mistakes
    When we cannot bear to look at our own perceived inadequacies and “sins”, we project them onto others. Projection and blame are rampant in the workplace. Resistance to seeing our own weaknesses, and the accompanying fear of exposure, can cause us to cover up our insecurities. A leader who owns his/her own shortcomings and failures has no need to blame others. An authentic but humble leader can say, “I’m wrong and I’m sorry.” Strong leaders take responsibility for themselves and their team in good times and bad. Humility is freedom from the need for admiration and external validation.
  2. Compassionate grace for ourselves and others
    Self-forgiveness is the result of giving yourself compassionate grace. With self-forgiveness, we no longer need to hide or fear exposure. We can also shine compassionate grace on others and relieve them of their fears and anxieties of being judged. The words, “I understand,” can be a demonstration of compassionate grace. We do not have to judge others or make enemies. Martin Luther King, Jr. famously said, “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.” I believe Universal Love is the power that sustains all life and heals all misunderstandings.
  3. EmpathyEmpathy is the ability and sensitivity to feel or imagine the emotions someone else is experiencing. Lack of empathy is usually a result of being absorbed in your own image, your own story, or your own limited viewpoint. Being a good communicator requires the awareness of how your words might impact another and consciously trying to be clear and yet, “do no harm.” Being a leader means more than being intelligent, a good strategic thinker, or having a lot of experience in your field. As the Dalai Lama said, “Having a smart brain is not enough. We also need a warm heart.” Leading from the heart is now being validated by many of the best thought leaders in our time.
  4. Trust in the unknown
    We all like to exert control in our lives. It helps us feel safe, secure, and protected. We tend to like the status quo and most people fear the unknown. We currently are living in what appears to be a very formidable unknown. Deep wisdom is recognizing that the unknown can be a gateway for new possibilities and a doorway to faith in the human spirit. As we relinquish our need to control, we can relax, be more mindful, and align with our infinite, inner wisdom. During a crisis, authentically powerful leaders inspire hope, faith, and trust that there will be a better day.

Healthcare News: Finding Clarity in the Unknown: One Day at a Time June 2, 2020

We have all been impacted during this global pandemic in ways we could never have imagined. Healthcare has been severely hit during these unfolding days, weeks, and months. We owe our continuing gratitude for the selflessness, courage, and sacrifice of so many people in all aspects of healthcare delivery. It has taken a toll on everyone, both here and around the world. How we emerge from all this is still evolving and lies in the realm of the unknown. Based on my experience with thousands of people, the unknown is cited as their greatest fear.

The frenetic and often dysfunctional workplace culture came to a grinding halt, causing us to face not only our external fears, but also, our inner demons and shadows. In the midst of sheltering in place, working remotely, working under strict guidelines, being unemployed, isolated, and feeling loss, it is hard to find one’s footing. Economic worries and financial losses can be overwhelming. In the absence of a knowable future, the ego goes into self-protection and dictates reactions and solutions. However, thoughts directed by the ego are fickle, floundering, argumentative, exaggerated, insane, contradictory, and utterly unreal. I believe we always have the choice to listen to our ego or our soul. Our feelings are a response to the narrative and can change instantly if we recognize their source.

Profound Opportunity to Create a New Culture

Although we have not had anything of this magnitude in our lifetimes, we have witnessed people coming together with compassion and love in previous crises. We now have a profound opportunity to bring love and compassion to the workplace and the world.

Tantamount to creating a new and cooperative culture is the individual process of self-realization. This includes facing our inner fears and demons. Fear is inside you and is not caused by a situation or an enemy. But it is so hidden in most people, they do not even know that it is fear that is motivating them. Blame and projection, drawing lines in the sand, and creating enemies are all a result of fear. Fear melts when you align with your inner core, allowing your courage and strength to arise.

This period in time offers pause for self-reflection, a time to restore and renew your sense of purpose, your values and your path in life. You can assist in creating a new culture when you are operating from the strength of love and inner wisdom.

Resiliency and Energy of the Human Spirit to Survive Daunting Challenges

You are witnessing and participating in an extraordinary moment in history. If you were to look back from some future point in time, what would you like to remember? What lessons did you learn, how did you survive, how did you face challenges, how did you make a difference, and did you share the energy of love and compassion? How did you contribute to a new culture? Will you see that despite uncertainty and suffering, your inner strength and will to live carried you to new heights of understanding and wisdom? Despite many losses, there are many beautiful moments occurring right now. Let this moment in time be a place of remembrance of the resiliency and energy of the human spirit to survive daunting challenges.

Project Illumination—Steps for Bringing Light and Inspiration to the Workplace

We have an opportunity to bring in light and inspiration to the workplace, create clarity in the fog of confusion, and heal the complex web of egos competing for power and validation. Here are my suggestions to assist in creating a new culture:

  1. Take one day at a time and, in very severe situations, it may be one moment at a time. This can immediately calm you and bring you to the present. Trying to control days, weeks, and years ahead of you, is overwhelming and exhausting. Trust that you will find solutions and inspirations as life unfolds. Life is a gift and it is offering new experiences and opportunities, often disguised initially as problems. Innovation and new opportunities arise in calmness, not angst. When you trust in the unknown you tap into imagination–the wellspring of creativity—genius itself.
  2. Start each day with gratitude for all the good in your life. Put your losses in perspective. Though times are exceedingly difficult, some of the things we complain about are not worthy of our attention. Start to notice how much you complain about people and situations that are petty and small. Complaining is a hidden way to be a self-righteous victim and there is no power in being a victim.
  3. Incite group will—a powerful catalyst for new and innovative ideas. Find mutual goals and values and celebrate contribution. Whether working remotely or in the workplace, engage others with understanding, humor, clear communication, asking questions, listening, and demonstrating respect. Share and honor stories that are uplifting, heartwarming and bonding to your team and your organization. Recognize the human spirit in all of us.
  4. Stop being so hard on yourself. These are unprecedented times. Give compassionate grace to yourself and others. Perfection is an illusion and it only leads to self-recrimination. Self-shaming or self-criticism is an epidemic within the pandemic. Only you can give it up. Stop clinging to self-imposed suffering. Renounce it now.
  5. Do not completely isolate yourself. Reach out to others through video chats, phone, and safe environments according to the guidelines in your area. Be outside and enjoy exercise and fresh air. Emanate love and compassion whenever you go. Kindness is a great healer. Eyes are the windows of the soul and even in a mask, people can see your smile in your eyes.
  6. Be discerning and measure information from your own values and intelligence, not sensationalism and drama. Be open to all points of view and find your own voice. With so much disinformation out there, it is understandable when people do not know what to believe. Ask yourself, “Who does this benefit? Does it resonate as truth or does it sound like fanaticism? Will it help bring peace and reconciliation? Does it bring us together or divide us?”
  7. Be free. Regardless of circumstances, freedom is first a state of mind. Victor Frankl, author, neurologist, and holocaust survivor found freedom in a concentration camp. He stated, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

Stop Scaring Yourself to Death with Your Own Fictitious Stories October 2, 2018

Stop Scaring Yourself to Death with Your Own Fictitious Stories. Join John Smallman and me as we discuss how pain and fear can awaken us to who we truly are. Then read below that summarizes our conversation.

In a world of diverse beliefs, conflict, blame, and shame, it is sometimes hard to remain seated in your own soul and grounded in your own authentic power.  We can be pulled one way and another, believing in false stories, interpretations, misunderstandings and confused conclusions.  However, we often add to the on-going drama with our own personal stories of fear that were concocted by the ego to keep us trapped in its grip.  The ego is a tormentor and the source of self-doubt–often in such a hysterical state, it is hard to believe we actually listen to its fearful warnings.  But we do listen and we can put ourselves in a frozen, painful state of torment and anxiety–mind spinning in endless possibilities. We create stories of catastrophe and future suffering in a misguided attempt to keep us safe and to keep us prepared for emergencies, almost like disaster preparedness training; only these stories you are creating are the worst possible circumstances that are never really likely to occur.  When we can unravel the drama in our own story, we can help unravel the pain and suffering in the world.  Healing our own heart is the path to healing the culture and structure on this planet.

Path of awakening

The circumstance causing us so much pain is actually a path of awakening designed by our own soul to discover our true, authentic selves. Our resistance to seeing the source of our suffering is what is actually causes the real pain!  Revealing to ourselves that we are the cause of our suffering is EMANCIPATION–freedom on the journey of the soul. When we can allow ourselves to truly look at fears and hidden doubts, we can release them and restore ourselves to authenticity and joy.

Discover the hidden complaint about yourself that is controlling your life and preventing you from being your true self, your soul.  Lack of self-worth shows up in relationships and it presents itself in various ways as a plan by your soul to awaken you to your true self .

In the absence of our soul’s true worth, we make up identities that we believe will prove we are worthy and powerful. Discovering that these roles are just actors, limited by self-directed scripts is a huge revelation! The secret to awakening is discovering that no matter how hard we try, the artificial roles are NOT ENOUGH.  Here are some of props or circumstances that can trigger our lack of internal worth but can be the opening to your personal restoration:

  • Financial worth:
    Our society is often based on idolatry of the rich and famous.  When we compare ourselves, we can berate ourselves for not being financially successful and/or famous.  Accumulating wealth is not a measure of our worth in reality but in the ego world it is.
  • Physical beauty, size, weight, etc.
    Studies show that teenage girls can become instantly depressed when reading fashion magazines showing anorexic and photo-shopped models wearing outrageously expensive clothes and accessories. Both men and women fall victim to this need to have physical beauty defined by fashion trends, movies, and other external variables.
  • Titles, occupations, and educational degrees
    Outside certifications, validations, degrees are recognized as credentials and proof of accomplishments. These are important guidelines and educational standards for societies to rely on, but even these can be used to validate a sense of worth or be confused with one’s true inner worth.  Losing your job can threaten your sense of who you are, but it is not your identity–just a role you play.
  • Clubs, societies, cliques, political groups, alumni associations, churches, sports fan clubs, etc.
    As social animals, human beings wanted to be accepted and included, and people bonding based on common goals creates synergy and accomplishes what one cannot do. Even small groups, using group will, can make significant changes. The question to ask in these groups of people is, “Who benefits here?” If it helps and elevates people, it is powerful.  If its intention is to suppress, oppress, exploit, or overcomes others, it is collection of egos and it is employing artificial power. Being a member in any of these groups or societies, even when it is worthwhile, still does not define your personal worth. It is a by-product of knowing who you are.
  • Partner

    Even the love partner can be part of your identify.  When one loses the validation, companionship, sense of love and support from the partner and society’s recognition can cause a great sense of loss.  The bitter-sweetness of the loss is that it can break your heart open to receive light shining in from yourself and others.

Here are my suggested steps to awaken from fearful, confusing, or painful moments:

When we can align with our inner knowing, our deepest self we connect with a source and a power greater than anything external.  By connecting with Universal Love, we find comfort, support, and wisdom to know how to deal with each situation as it arises.  It is counter-intuitive, but when we slow down we find clarity and accomplish more. Here are my suggestions on the path to freedom:

  1. Pause and take a deep breath.
  2. Bring your self to the present moment by focusing on your breathing.
  3. Relax and feel yourself letting go of the busy mind.
  4. Trust in the knowledge that you belong here, and you are connected to Love, the power that sustains all life.
  5. Hold your struggle or conflict in your consciousness and ask your inner wisdom, “What is the threat here? What am I really afraid of? What am I trying to protect?”
  6. As you allow yourself to see the belief or fear that is holding you hostage, you can stop hiding it from yourself.
  7. Know that you actually have the power within to face and deal with each situation as they arise when you operate in the present moment from your inner wisdom.
  8. Remind yourself that 99% of your worries never occur—they are creations of your mind to try to protect you and prepare you. But your hidden fears can be debilitating.
  9. Practice becoming present and connecting with Love—the very reason you exist.

An Evening with Modern Mystic, Mary Reed

BIO: Mary Reed is an “accidental” modern mystic who grew up devoutly agnostic. In 2011 she left her executive life in Washington, DC for a monastic life in the Himalayas after struggling for eleven years with the impact of veering uncontrollably into otherworldly realms encountering God, Jesus, Buddha, angels and unfathomable wisdom. These events finally turned her life inside out, and now when not living in the remote Buddhist nunnery she calls home in India, Mary travels the world detailing profound mystical insights that reveal wildly inspiring — and sorely needed — perspectives that shed new light on the significance of these extraordinary times. 

Description: An Evening with Modern Mystic Mary Reed

In this special private gathering, Mary will offer a glimpse into her highly unusual life and share stories of Divine wisdom that are startling to the mind and yet deeply familiar to the heart. She will also lead guests in a powerful exercise that provides an experiential understanding of Oneness, taking us out of our framework of beliefs and into the direct knowing within. Guests will have the opportunity to ask questions and receive signed copies of award-winning book, Unwitting Mystic, which is currently in development as a feature-length film.

Here’s a link to the 5-minute video, which conveys the “enchanted” nature of my life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BP-QE1vn6Q

To get a glimpse of her work/style, here’s her What Love Really Is video from 2016 that sets up the overview of what’s collapsing in our current tumultuous times: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvrZ-rkOF6c

And, if you’re interested, here’s the most recent video that includes some of what she’s talking with audiences about this year to start moving people forward in actively using what’s happening in our world today to create the life we really want: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0nQymyadfE  (She just gave this talk a couple of weeks ago.)

In this intimate gathering with people who don’t yet know her, she will tell more of her ‘relatable’ background to put you at ease, so you will get a sense of her as a normal person just like all of us.

You must RSVP:  danna@dannabeal.com

Examine your life anew, remembering every significant event, and even those not appearing to be so important.  Recall how you felt, especially those that caused you pain, and question your evaluation and subsequent belief about what happened. Ask yourself, “Was that what really happened?” Try to be open to a different interpretation from that which you made at the time.  Experiment and even make up a different possibility. Let go of this fixed opinion about the person or situation, even for a moment and allow another possibility to arise. It is in your story about this person or situation that you have disavowed or devalued yourself. It is not wrong.  It is only the result of a painful occurrence in your life, in which you tried to avoid and prevent yourself from feeling hurt. Your desire for self-protection is what created the walls that are now keeping you apart–keeping you in some level of fear of others.

The desire to be safe makes sense, but it is placing reliance on a defense and provides only temporary relief.  It results in reactions and counter-reactions that are part of the entire web of interacting egos operating at this time. The suffering experienced by you and every other person is causing a huge divide in families, communities, societies, and nations worldwide.  This suffering and subsequent seeing others as the enemy has been the cause and source of all conflict, and, ultimately, the cause of wars between nations.

Voluntarily facing your own fears and discovering your true source, which is the love and power from which you came, is the way to your personal relief, as well as that of others.  As you, one by one, stop blaming others and “put down the gun”, so to speak, you begin the unraveling process.  When you can see that others are only alternate versions of yourself, wanting to be loved and needed, you will begin healing.  It is all the same thing for everyone.  Each beautiful, unique, and precious individual just wants to be loved and needed.  The heart yearns for love and acceptance.

Love is a deeply abiding presence residing in all of us, connecting us to one another, emerging from life itself. We cannot hold love, nor can we destroy it for it is the birthright of every man woman and child. Love provides answers even when we are alone. It comforts us and support us in the darkest experiences. Love’s presence is gift available at any moment, anytime, anywhere, regardless of the surroundings or circumstances. Can you put parameters on love, can you put limits on love, can you explain the inexplicable? Can you lasso the win?  Lo and behold—you are love. You are an extension of Source.

Higher consciousness is a state of living in a higher reality and in a higher relationship with self and others than we are now.  Just knowing we are part of a higher consciousness IS a higher consciousness. Being tapped into that higher reality allows you to participate in transforming consciousness here at this time. You have come here to do just that.  As you elevate yourselves, you automatically elevate others.  Nothing will remain the same after this moment in time which is expanding rapidly to create a new world. Welcome to a new existence.  This is a precious time to be alive. You are on an exalted path to a new word.

The mass ego delusion has played on too long.  This is the time to shift into a new world of love and forgiveness—where we take down the walls and masks and finally see our brothers and sisters, whom we had mistakenly identified as the enemy.

The joy of reuniting completely with your soul can only be appreciated when you give up preconceived ideas of what your soul is, defined or conjured up by the ego.  Your pathway to this experience is paved with many misunderstandings, misconceptions, and misguided attempts, but is deliberately leading to reuniting you with your soul. Inhabitants of this planet began the journey long before they arrived. The intentional pressure provides the work to bring about awakening on this journey.

The process is filled with many missteps, but a deliberate commitment to rattling the cage of the ego’s self-appointed prison can lead to this beautiful re-connection and reunion with the soul.

High frequencies of undulating waves of joy are yours for the asking, yet many refuse to recognize or even conceive of the possibility of such joy, and therefore delay their journey.  Instead they spend a lot of time in a massive delusion with repeated disappointments and negative consequences—so powerful is the denial created by the ego. But at the end of the delusion is the destiny of each soul–reunification with the soul that will finally be attained.

Pleasure along the way keeps the process going, allowing each individual an opportunity to have substantial hope and expectation that joy eventually will be attained.  The significant efforts down the alternative paths and desires, will recognize that these simple results and external rewards (money, position, status, homes, cars, fame) always provide temporary happiness and only lead to dissatisfaction and disappointment.

You, dear ones, are here to help others discover their path of awakening by pointing back to the source of the pain and suffering, so that they can release their misguided beliefs and hasten their journey back home to themselves. This awakening is a true transfer to one’s authentic self, which is the only real escape from pain and disillusionment. Your significant effort and repeated challenges to this exalted path have been a divine crossing into the unknown, where all joy, freedom, and love reside.

We have been with you always and applaud and rejoice at every step on your way back to yourself. Believe in us and continue to receive our guidance we so freely offer. Proud moments lie ahead, so well deserved by you. Fulfill your fate by deliberate steps forward, not doubting or giving into your shadow or memories of past experiences.  It is over! It is done! You can reclaim your soul and your right to your inheritance. Do not delay another moment. You will be astounded at all that is awaiting you—for your pleasure and gratification of your soul. Align deeply with your hopes and desires and your actions will attest to the truth of your soul’s journey and to assist others to reunite with their souls in full realization.

Be not blinded again by fear and doubt.  It is over!!! It is done!! You’re suffering is no longer needed to elevate you.  Step out of the ego’s delusion and claim your rightful heritage.  Say to yourself and others, “I belong here and joy is mine for the asking.  I am beautiful.”  Release your old preconceived ideas that life must be so difficult. Stand up and rejoice! You are home. You have returned to your divine self.

Pledge allegiance to this beautiful outcome and transformation and meet each day with happiness and expectation of only the best.  Live your life and trust in the knowledge that you are being guided and provided what you need. The arduous journey is done, and the glimmering future has arrived. And it is beyond your wildest expectations. Your days will be bountiful, trust in that. And refuse to look back and there is no need to repeat the past.

You lift hearts and fill others with white light of knowing their true purpose. People are attracted to your light–they always have been. Your beautiful soul extends out and softens the hearts of everyone. You are source of release and joy! You are a part of the evolution and transformation, and that is why we have told you — it can’t fail–it can’t fail!  It is your destiny. Your joy is our joy, your peace is our peace, and your gratitude is our gratitude. We elevate you to a new level of truth and confidence so that you can continue your work to assist in the advancement of the civilization.

 

How Meditation Leads to Powerful Inner Guidance March 21, 2018

We can often feel we are too busy to stop and meditate because our plates are full and there are so many distractions calling for our attention. But even 5 for 10 minutes a day can be extremely powerful, bringing us the calm and clarity we need to be confident, productive, and happy.  So many times, my clients ask me for guidance and I always bring them back to the fact that in each of us is the answer–the divine guidance within.

Meditation brings illumination and answers when none seem apparent.  The next steps are revealed when we slow down and trust the deep inner knowing.  Businesses are teaching meditation and mindfulness because it has been shown to increase teamwork and cooperation. But on a personal level, the joy of living in the present and connecting with the soul is the greatest benefit.  When we do, we see synchronicity and unexpected beautiful events unfold before our very eyes.

Join author and therapist, Leonard Szymczak, and me, on our immediate access video to help increase your own desire to practice meditation, even in the very busy and stressful times!

Following the inner path to face your own fears and weaknesses is the only way one discovers the deep, inner, spiritual and authentic self. As witnessed throughout the world in politics, social issues, economic issues, and all relationships, most would rather blame others and avoid personal responsibility. I invite you to listen to Ronna Prince and me as we discuss personal transformation.
