Your mind will always believe everything you tell it.  Feed it hope.  Feed it truth.  Feed it with love.

From Bruce Lipton, author of “Biology of Belief”

To say that this is a challenging time seems to be an understatement at times.  Yet, there is so much to be grateful for.  If we focus on the external world and the problems we see, it can be easy to feel distress and even despair.  But if we put our attention on the blessings, we can feel hopeful, calm and peaceful.  It is our choice, even when outer circumstances tell us another story.  I need to remind myself of this frequently!!

I did not grow up in a Buddhist tradition and have just started learning the teachings over the last few years.  This has been so helpful for me.  Attachment to outcome creates suffering.  Whew, that’s a big one for me.  Live in the present moment.  Yes!  It works well…when I do it.  Chop wood, carry water.  I really like reminding myself of that when I get caught up in thoughts and worry.  I am slowly absorbing this wisdom and I’m sure it will be ongoing for the rest of my life.

My dear friend and mentor Bonnie Orgren shared with me that she is sending out this intention daily:  “May the minds and hearts of all sentient beings be filled with goodwill.”  I love this and am joining her in this practice.  I invite you to share in it, as well.

Blessings, Mary

Dear ones, beloved of my heart,

We are, indeed, in a time of upheaval and dramatic change.  I know that it can be unsettling and sometimes feels difficult or even overwhelming.  It may look like the world is crumbling before your eyes.  In some ways this is true.  The old ways have to dis-integrate to create space for the New to manifest.

Each of you plays a part in the current shift and flow.  It is your choice how to participate.  Do you bring fear, anger, blame and judgment to situations and people?  Or do you bring love, peace, trust and compassion for yourself and others?  

You are not going through this alone, my precious partners in co-creation.  Each moment you are surrounded by loving spirit beings.  You are loved so deeply. You are guided and protected.  If you ask for our help, we respond instantly.  We are always waiting to be asked, for your free will is not something we will override.

If you are looking at the changes at the ground level, you will see chaos, fear and things may not make sense at all.  But if you climb, or fly, to a higher place, you will have a different view.  You will have a greater understanding of how the changes are unfolding.  You will see the ways that change is opening doors to new opportunities for abundance, love for all life and individual and collective freedom.  

Self-care is so crucial right now.  Take care of yourselves with tenderness.  Extend that tenderness and love to all beings.  That will make this time of transition much easier for all.

Know that you are loved beyond measure by beings of the Spirit World.  We hold you close to our hearts and send as much caring and love as your hearts can let in.  Be with us, breathe with us, allows us to enfold you.  Quiet yourself and sense our hearts beating together in a rhythm of grace, peace and all-encompassing love.

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