Your thoughts can never hold your soul. Your soul beckons you from a deep place that you knew, even as a little child.  The longing you feel to rejoin is a call from your soul and you are answering. Your presence here at this time benefits others as well as yourself. Present the face of your soul in the embodiment of (your name)–with glittering eyes, calling others to awaken to the brilliance, love and joy awaiting them. Do not be diminished by small definitions of yourself, or worrying thoughts that keep you small.  Your destiny is to be here now, with us helping you in everything.

Do not labor and worry.  It is all about unfold in magnificent splendor before you very eyes.  Blessed are you.   We love and adore you—you are a precious soul, loved by many, honored for your truth and justice, and your commitment and sacrifice for the good of others.

The pain you feel will melt away as you continue from your sojourn to a higher ground—a safe environment of lovely peace.  Feel the blessings arising in you—the relief you seek is right here now and at any moment that you request it.  You are always chaperoned– watched over on your beautiful path of diligence toward a mighty goal, releasing the chains for not only yourself, but for those you meet. Singing the praise of love into being, you are guiding others who need a helping hand as you are assisting in the shift in consciousness.

Bestowed on you is this gift—this promise—you will be taken care of throughout your life–trust in that. Joyous occasions await you—answering the call with your open heart.  Blessings, dear one, blessings to you.  Allow the flow of love into your heart—replenishing you soul that has been dimmed by the darkness of fears and trepidation created by the mind.

It is always your choice to listen to the voice of the ego or your soul that is aligned to Love. The outcome of listening to your soul is a million times superior to the outcome of your thinking mind.  The options of the mind are always limited to that which seems safe and reasonable.  Your choice now is to go beyond the darkness and come into full bloom—blossoming from the strength of the divine, leading you away from the temptress of the known and the secure.

Born in the moment, in sincere desire, is the content for the messages for civilization to shift—the dawning of a new world now–precisely now.

Masculine pride is being confronted and slowly dismantled, leading to a shift of magnificent proportions.  Blind ambition, greed, and fights to overcome others have a caused a breach, a break in the now crumbling wall of defense and projection, leading to cataclysmic results of a divine nature.

Follow each intuition, idea, and intention that seems to emerge and take it from a delicate flower and watch it bloom into an immense opportunity.

Beautiful soul–gather your strength, and begin anew, mightier for the fall. stronger for the experience and blessed by the grace and love that leads you.  You benefit yourself and others every time you return to the presence of your divine brothers and sisters.  Your path is assured and strengthened through the trials of your experience.

Value your gift of grace and feel the tears of relief.  The energy needed is supplied before you even ask.  Keep flowing and flowing, returning and sharing light and love. Let the light in you be reflected to all.  Peace and joy to you.

Remember, thoughts directed by the ego are fickle, floundering, argumentative, silly, exaggerated, insane, contradictory and utterly unreal. This will be relief to yourself and also help you understand the thoughts and reactions of others when operating from ego dictates. They are just not real.

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

Welcome to a new existence! June 29, 2018

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.

 

 

Do You Want a Vibrant Life without Pain? May 16, 2018

I hear and witness so many people who feel their life is somewhat restricted or slowed down due to arthritis or other aches, pains, and health limitations.  I too, had been putting some limitations on my activities and even my posture due to a back fusion a few years ago.  But in last couple years, I have had a breakthrough and discovered that it was fear of hurting myself in some way that was causing self-protection, which itself became the pain.  My unconsciously tightened muscles around my spine became stiff and sore over time. So rather than operate with caution, I increased my yoga, added more exercise and walked farther, and I started feeling great and younger!

What I have been inspired to share is this understanding. Unfortunately, the path of least resistance is followed by most people. But doing nothing and creating a less active world, leads to apathy, suppression, denial, and guilt. Families and individuals for generations have gone down this path, leading to more disappointment, depression, disabling consequences, and even early death.

But you need to know this. Choices are always available to do more, to grow, to enlarge oneself, to seek opportunity, to delve deeper and to live a life that is more exhilarating, bright and joyful. Why would anyone choose anything else? And yet, the unenhanced and undeveloped life is the path chosen by most and they begin allowing their lives to decline.  You can change that when you understand remarkable lives are actually the result of actively engaging and choosing opportunities from a myriad of possibilities when you are open. Life is meant to be enjoyed with aspiration and continuing advancement:  physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually!!!

Unconscious physical self-protection, just like emotional protection, results in caution, limited mobility, lack of adventure, stiffness, and the lack of excitement. The restrictions become painful walls, resulting in stiff limbs and joints, and shortened lives.  Again, why would anyone choose this? Only if they don’t know their ability to take charge.

Bone and joint disease, in many cases, is result of atrophy:  results from fear of pain, avoiding movement that may hurt, resulting physical protection that worsens the disease and causes change in pain. Unfortunately, humans are slowly dying and debilitating themselves. It’s time to choose a different life experience.  Instead, rebuild, rejoice, restore, and rejuvenate by going through the self-protection.  It is your choice!!

Choose to be alive and not in a continual decline and you will be the witness to yourself of these words. Be alive! Live fully! You will live lives that are unattainable when operating in fear, remorse, guilt and shame.  Live vibrantly and share your gifts a passion and love. Self-appointed limitations are just that, and they prevent individuals from experiencing all that they came to do.

Flood your life with experiences. Days will be filled with expansion, activity, friends, action, encounters, and happiness. You were meant to be happy and healthy. Embracing fear and choosing ways to expand your physical limits and the actions will lift you to new heights. Align with your soul an dedicate yourself to good health and a remarkable life of freedom and joy!!

I invite you to read, Back in Control, by David Hanscom, MD, a spine surgeon at Swedish Hospital, for more information about pain, the brain and pain, and designing your own care.

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.

Liberation from Fear January 26, 2018

Join John Smallman and me as we discuss the topic of liberation from fear.

I recently spoke to 150 people in downtown Bellevue on Mindfulness.  I began by asking how many people in the room had experienced a significant or major struggle in the past year.  Without hesitation, the hands of nearly everyone in the entire room went up.  I asked them to look around.  We are all experiencing struggles, both individually and collectively, but the solution lies within us, not from struggling with the outer circumstances.  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 situations 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.

Witness the Exposure November 22, 2017

Greetings friends,
This is a compilation of some parts of the messages I have received in the past few months but haven’t posted. The ultimate message is one of Universal Love arising in all of us, but at this time it may not always feel like it. Here are the messages:

Celebrate the new energy coming to the planet even when it doesn’t appear so. An enormous exposure of epic proportions is occurring, revealing the underbelly of the hidden scenes supporting the artificial structure of interweaving connections. The exposure is like lifting a huge rock, revealing the insects and worms living beneath it–hidden and protected by the dark and heavy stone. Many of the people who appear to be in charge but who are operating from the greed of the ego, are actually small potatoes. They are only the tip of the iceberg of what has been occurring for generations by those who would manipulate the world for their own gain.

You are now all witnessing the unraveling of the ego on the grand stage–individually and collectively. Don’t despair! Simply observe without fear as the evolutionary shift unfolds before your eyes. If you feel called to action, trust your inner guidance and stand for truth to power.

The exposure will liberate people from the grip of the hidden powers of people who have been overpowering others. Burgeoning efforts by many are bringing about the shift in consciousness. Foretold expansion and changes are arriving. Great tidings for the most awaited time in the history of the planet are happening now with joyous results. Celebrate the new energy coming to the planet.

The source of the problem is the competitive nature within the web of egos. It is a theme of one-upmanship–an effort to gain power and validation over and from others. What most do not understand is that the solution lies in noticing, disengaging, and releasing the seeds of competition in yourself. It can be difficult to do, but it is the necessary and most direct path for awakening.

As you notice the small, petty opinions, comparisons, and judgments made by you, you are valiantly letting go of the grip of your own ego and allowing your true self to emerge. As you set yourself free, you are helping others free themselves. It takes great courage to see the problems or fears in one’s self but that is the path to the strength of authentic power. You don’t need to seek outside for validation, even from those closet to you. Align and trust your inner guidance of Love because your limited viewpoint is too small.

We share with you from a higher perspective, unlimited my time and space. Living from the small version of yourself can keep you frozen or stuck. Your shadow is not deserving of this much time and attention. Stop clinging and reverting to its fearful thoughts and attempts to disqualify you. Do not compare yourself to others and don’t despair or believe your fearful stories.

When you feel fearful, understand that the shadow is completely dedicated to keeping you in shame and insecurity so that you will not ask for and receive divine guidance.

You belong here, doing what you are doing, advancing each hour and day, building momentum and perspective. Trial and error are guidepost which help you see the path ahead, not to limit you, but to inspire you to go further than ever before. Emanate love and compassion, seeing each person as on his/her own path of awakening–no matter how it appears to you.

Prepare for the new dawn of civilization awaiting each of you as you realize your freedom and discover that the source of your dismay is coming from you. All is well, even in these world-wide dark and bleak appearing circumstances. Blind faith is your strength and passion is your source of perseverance. Trust in the almighty strength of Love–your true source. Your source is so magnificent and powerful that it cannot be compared to anything you can achieve by your own efforts.

Attempts to elevate yourself through the fear stemming from your ego are useless efforts. Let go and see that you are right where you need to be. Blind spots in your road can be illuminated with focus and attention.

Trust in your true nature. Your joy is our joy, your strength is our strength. Your courage is supported by us at every moment. We are with you. We are you–without the limitations that you hold in your experience. Bless you and continue in your journey of self-discovery and share your understanding with those you encounter.

There is a source more powerful and greater than any circumstances or mishaps that are appearing in your world. Why do you try to go it alone? Be not dismayed and discouraged—rather lift up and trust in the guiding light of Love. We are here, awaiting your recognition and response at every moment. We love you and provide you with immediate assistance in every environment and each situation. We have not deserted you, nor would we ever. The treasures that await you are blessed with the guidance that will fulfill and delight you.

Bathe in the light of our love. Bask in our delight with you. Take down the shields and allow love to join you in every decision. Feel our presence–the infusion of energy and joy. We are with you at every juncture, paving the way for the perfect journey. Trust in the imminent and powerful infusion of joy and replenishment for you.

Be still and know we are here with you. Your choice to believe in us, even during these experiences of disruptions and significant upsets, carries you through all circumstances. Absolute trust is all we require of you, dear friends and comrades. We guide you as you go beyond the known, the physical limitations of the current state of consciousness, leading others to a new way of understanding, a higher level of clarity, and a place of diminishing fears—a place where only Love abides.

When You Worry About Your Adult Child November 15, 2017

Posted by Danna Beal in 1, Emancipation, Inner Peace, Love, Relationships.
Tags: , , , , , ,

I shared the following message with a coaching client a year ago who was having fear and anxiety about her grown child and her life choices.  Six months later I realized the message was for me when my adult son broke his neck in a mountain biking accident. Before I go further, I want to add that he is on a path of healing and wellness due to the love from family and friends, great doctors, and his own resiliency and positive attitude.

But for me, as a mother, it was an excruciatingly painful time, especially in the uncertain time in the first few weeks. Maintaining an alignment with my divine source was a daily practice and some days for me, it was almost impossible due to my fears. The message below, as well as love and support from my family and friends, helped me.  I had to read it and focus on it many, many times, but it shifted my limited view that was coming from a mother’s eyes, to one of trust and respect for my adult son’s courage and belief in himself.

Here is the message:

Children rarely follow the path their parents have envisioned for them. Each child has many twists and turns in the road to and throughout adulthood. Every child is really the prodigal son, in a sense, in that each must take his or her own journey.

When you love your children deeply you can mistakenly believe you know what is best for them, even when they are adults. It is deep love, predicated by a desire to keep them safe, that creates the illusion that telling them what to do will protect them from their own lives.  You only want for their happiness and survival in what appears to be a scary world. What is not usually understood is that the child is an equal soul and has his/her own journey to be followed based on the needs of his/her own chosen destiny.

If you worry about your adult children, this message and consequent understanding should give you some relief. You cannot really impact your children’s choices based on your own fears and desires, but you can inspire and fortify their courage by demonstrating faith in them to make the right choices for themselves. Offering unconditional love but not responsibility for their decisions– no matter how their choices appear to you, is the ultimate gift you can give them. When asked, it is appropriate to offer your suggestions and wisdom but still, emphasizing that they make their own choices.  Demonstrate trust that they will make the best choices for themselves. Trust that your children’s decisions are part of their experience—not right or wrong, no matter how it appears to you.

Admonishments and warnings about negative consequences to your adult child’s life are based on your own fears. It is out of love that you give your opinions, but they can be received as criticism or lack of confidence in them. In some cases, it can create a breach and an alienation in the relationship. You are learning one of life’s most difficult lessons—letting go and allowing a child its natural birthright and responsibility to follow his/her chosen path, even when it appears careless, risky, or mistaken. It is a difficult lesson because parents so love their children, and as human beings, the desire is protect them.

The release comes when parents tell their children that they trust them to make the best decisions for their own lives and, as parents, they wish only the best for them.  If you, as a parent, offer an opinion and it is rejected, it helps to explain that you recognize and acknowledge that they must make their own choices.  Your children’s life decisions are theirs to make and they will face their own results—those that may appear good or bad to you, but are all, ultimately, part of their awakening. Resist the unconscious desire to project your own worries and fears on your children.

All the love parents feel does not give them the ability or the responsibility to usurp their children’s power. Parents do not have the vision to see what is truly best for their children’s soul journeys.  Views through a parent’s eyes cannot see the perspective that comes from a higher spiritual vantage. Parents often maintain an image of their child that is no longer accurate.  Letting go of the limited image from a parent’s eyes and seeing a child as an adult is a difficult but rewarding transition.  The good news is that your only work is loving each child’s own heart and letting go of fear. And as we free our children, we free ourselves.
