Ascension is a relay race, not a marathon.

~Jennifer Hoffman, EnlighteningLife.com

This quote from Jennifer Hoffman has resonated with me many times lately.  She says that some of us treat our life’s ascension journey like a marathon where we have to keep going and doing things no matter what.  Sometimes we don’t stop to question why or if it is really part of what we are being asked or called to do.  At times we may reach a point of completion and it’s okay to stop and rest or move on to something else.

Jennifer encourages us to think of our ascension as a relay race where we sometimes pass the baton to someone else and they take care of things for a while.  At other times someone may hand the baton to us for a task or project and we go with it for a while.

I think the key is discerning whether things are ours to do or not.  There are so many worthwhile causes and possibilities.  Yet each of us has an inner guidance system that gently tells us what is ours to do and what isn’t.

In our work-focused culture, it can be challenging to feel okay about spending time in meditation, quiet contemplation, rest, prayer or just being.  Yet these things are extremely important to our own well-being and they also reverberate out to touch others and all of creation in beautiful ways.

May we all listen to hear the voice of Spirit speaking to us and guiding us to what serves us and the highest good of all.

Blessings, Mary

From Gaia, August 20, 2018

Dear ones, my beloved friends,

I hold you close to my heart, very much aware that we all are living in challenging and transformative times.  There are endings, doors closing and changes that may be uncomfortable and even frightening.  Yet at the same time there are new beginnings, new paths becoming visible and the excitement of new freedoms and possibilities.

Know with absolutely certainty that you are never alone.  Your partners and loving friends in the Unseen Realm are always near, cheering for you, walking and running along side of you and guiding your footsteps along the road of your life. 

Sometimes we can carry you when you are weary and need a break.  At times we take the baton, if you ask for our help, and we can complete a part of the relay race of life with you.

It’s okay to not be busy all the time.  The Unseen Ones love to spend time with you unencumbered by tasks or projects.  Sometimes those things distract from our time together.  And time together is important and precious and needed.

Doing is important, to be sure.  But so is being!  Take time to think about the balance in your life and recalibrate when things are out of balance.  The trees grow without your help.  Yet they enjoy your presence.  So does all of nature-the birds, the creatures, the soil, air and all that is around you. 

If you are a do-er, take some time to be quiet and still.  It may feel uncomfortable but with practice it will be easier and you will find gifts and benefits.

Ask for help if you need it.  We of the Spirit world love you so deeply.  We can provide so much assistance but it is important for you to ask for what you need and want.  Together we can co-create a space of love for all to thrive in.

I love you, dear ones.  I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend
