“No army can withstand the strength of an idea whose time has come.”

~Victor Hugo

It feels like things are intensifying in the world.  Love and awakening are more evident.  Yet so are fear, grasping by those in power, dis-ease and a sense of things being shaken up, unsettled.

Contrasts are vivid.  Last spring in Iowa was unusually warm and the summer was extremely hot and dry.  This spring has been very chilly with lots of rain, cloudy days and flooding.  Is this perhaps a reflection of the need to be flexible and not make assumptions about what will happen next?  During times of uncertainty, we may want to grab onto something that seems stable.  Yet we need to keep our hands and hearts open, rather than expecting things to stay the same or be predictable.

I have been thinking about the world’s reaction when Jesus was born 2,000 years ago.  Most were unaware.  But those in power were very aware and threatened by their ideas of what they thought this would mean-someone wanting to take away their power.  They tried to kill Jesus when he was a baby but failed due to Divine protection.

Now the Christ Consciousness is rising on the earth.  Those in power are feeling threatened and once again want to get rid of this.  It’s a lot harder to weed out something that is so dispersed but there is ample evidence of their willingness to try.

It is easy to point fingers at those in ‘high places’ of power, such as governments, corporations, religions, and other institutions.  Yet we are all a part of this.  We are all part of systems that are ingrained with hierarchy, privilege and imbalances.  Individually and collectively, we are being challenged to live in harmony with the whole, to stay peaceful amidst chaos and choose love.  We are supported in so many ways, if we can get quiet and in touch with the love that surrounds us.

Blessings, Mary

Dear ones, my beloved friends and co-creators,

Indeed the energy and vibration of change is growing stronger and, for many, discomfort and fear accompany this.  You are on a path of transformation and the unknown can be disconcerting.  All around you is evidence of those who are handling the changes in ways that make things more challenging and difficult.

Your job is to focus on yourself and what you can do.  Send love and prayers and healing energy to others but let go of the choices they make.  Hold your peaceful center in the midst of chaos and fear.  If you do that, you are making a huge difference, far beyond what is visible to human eyes.

Be a quiet pool of silence and peace.  Know deep within your being that you are surrounded by angels and loving spirit beings who are ready to assist you at any moment.  They need to be asked and then they respond in the twinkling of an eye.  Breathe the breath of life with me and all who love you in the Unseen realm.

All is well, despite problems that seem insurmountable.  Don’t be discouraged or distressed.  You are loved beyond measure.  Transitions can be challenging but keep your eyes on the beauty that is ever near and know that more is on the way.

Take my hands and each others hands.  Listen for guidance and it will come without limits.  Open your hands, your hearts, your eyes and all will become clear.  Know that we are moving into greater spaces of love.  You are surrounded by love, only love, always love, love overflowing.

I love you, my darlings.  I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend

Imprisoned or free?

We are all prisoners of current assumptions.

~Andre Borschberg, http://www.solarimpulse.com, first pilot to fly around the world in a solar powered airplane

I think there is something inside of us that rebels against the idea that we are prisoners of anything.  Yet the quote is a thought-provoking reminder that we are limited by our beliefs.  Who knew it would be possible to build an airplane powered by the sun and fly it around the world?  The answer: someone who wasn’t limited by current thinking and who had the courage, determination and sense of adventure to try something new.

Who controls our beliefs?  We do!  So we can be free indeed.  However, we have been programmed by our culture, our families, our institutions and in so many other ways.  It’s truly a lifetime endeavor or sort through it all and find our own truth and freedom.

What do we believe is impossible?  What do we believe that we can’t do?  What are we willing to try?  How can we see the choices that are available to us, even when we feel trapped or controlled by circumstances?

As we examine our core beliefs, we can find the prison door which we created.  We can dissolve it and move into an expanded field of possibilities.  It may not be easy, as it will likely move us out of our comfort zone.  Yet with time, these new places will become part of our expanded comfort zone.

I believe that we are living at a time and in an energy field that supports our growth and freedom in ways that we can scarcely imagine.  We have wings!  Yet they cannot carry us anywhere unless we open them and take off.  It can be scary to head off into the unknown.  We need to be gentle and compassionate with ourselves and others as we navigate into the bright future ahead of us.

Blessings, Mary

From Gaia, 4-2-13

Dear ones, my beloved partners and friends,

Sit quietly for a moment and sense the peace that surrounds you, flowing from the depths of the earth and the heights of the heavens.  As you focus on this inner place of silence and wisdom, the noise and limitations of the world around you fade away.

This space of love is available to you each and every moment.  It can be challenging to find this place sometimes and to stay in it for extended periods of time.  But when you do, this space grows and expands.  You find that more and more of your time can be spent here.

Always, your friends and partners in the Unseen realm are with you.  We love you!  We are eager to support and help you each moment.  When you see a barrier or problem, ask for help!  We need to be asked and when you do, we offer our ideas, guidance and strength.  We love to help!  We aren’t stingy or reluctant.  We want to help you fly!!  Our breath will be the wind beneath your wings.  We cradle you in arms of love.

Breathe our love into your hearts.  You will find renewed enthusiasm and hope.  Truly, my darlings, the limits you feel imprisoning you are created by you.  You have the power to move beyond them.  It’s not always easy to release the bondage.  The first step is realizing that it’s always about choice and you are the one who chooses.

It can be intimidating and frightening to step into the unknown, to take risks without knowing what the result will be.  Be patient with yourself and take small steps until you have the confidence to walk and then run, dance and then fly.

Your friends in the Unseen realm are with you always and forever.  Close your eyes and you can see more than you now realize.  Feel our loving presence and call upon us whenever you want or need us.  We love you.

Believe and you will see wonders, mysteries and miracles.  I love you, dear ones.  I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend
