Every Day is a Gift
Message from the Masters
113020 Celestial Gathering
Greetings Dear Ones,
We have the utmost respect and Love for each of you as you awaken and move out of your “comfort zone.” We recognize that life is similar to a battleground, whichever way you look, on Earth at this time. Your trials and tribulations in many ways are much more difficult than when we walked the land. However, on the other hand, you have many more “creature comforts” and assistance available to you than during the life of most of us. Thus, be sure to ask for assistance as you need it. Set aside any pride or other feelings that keep you from connecting with others.
2021 is on the horizon, and for many of you, the hope is that this year will be better than 2020. However, from the Big Picture perspective, where time has no existence, it is just another case of “one day at a time.” Thus, set your goals for the current moment, to be the best that you can be. Let go of any fears that arise in this moment. If you find yourself in an emotional situation, take several deep breaths in and out, slowly, so that you can gain more inner peace.
For it is when you have inner peace that you will have clarity. When you have clarity, you will have the ability to make wiser choices. Hopefully, you will be in union with your Higher Self and Spirit Team, so that you can have an even greater understanding and assistance when making the myriad of choices that bombard you each day.
When you take time to meditate and go within each day, you will discover many benefits.
Thus, make this a priority. If you say to yourself, “I don’t have time for that,” then take a closer look at how you are expending your time. Surely a space of 10-20 minutes can be found somewhere during your waking hours.
Paying attention to what you eat is also becoming more important as the years have progressed. As you know, there are many contaminants in the food and the water. The soils are depleted of natural minerals and much of the food is processed so that there is no life within them by the time it is placed into your mouth. This alone is a huge factor of the upsurge of dis-ease within your population.
What we offer today is to take time for inner reflection. As the new year approaches, it is a good time to start making plans for how you want to act and react in the days to come. Set goals for yourself that are attainable. If you set a goal and do not hit the mark, then do not berate yourself. Watch for your reactions if you set a deadline to reach a goal.
If you set a timeline and feel frustrated or anxious because you may not make that deadline, then discard the deadline, for you are creating more anxiety and stress in your life. The goal is to become free-flowing and ready for whatever challenges and opportunities present themselves in the current moment.
Many of you are already in high stress mode due to the “holidays” and not being able to uphold family traditions.
Let this be a good time to review each of these traditions, for in many cases, they no longer serve you. Think of how you can express your love in new ways. When you look back to the pre-industrial ages, you will notice that most of the modern traditions were not in existence back then. There was less stress. The holy-days of yore were filled with tribal gatherings, food and mirth.
The main difference is that it was communal. Everyone was growing the crops and gathering the food to be shared together, throughout the year. The tribe together prepared the gathering place and all that was needed for the ceremonies. There was a lot more hardship before the advent of stores. Yet, with the help of many hands, the hunting, gathering, cooking, preparations and childcare were shared by the tribe. The joy was not just at the moment of celebration, but throughout the preparatory times. (Life is a journey, not a destination.)
Many of today’s customs have everyone running around in a frenzy. Overspending reached its ultimate high each year. But this year is a different story. Thus, new traditions are being created. One thing that we have noted is that much of the familial tension has lessened. This is due to not being in person with those we have unresolved issues with. It is much easier to get along with a person when it’s through a Zoom gathering… or not seeing them at all.
What we suggest is to use this time to reset your perception with those you have had problems with.
Go within and look at ways you can forgive yourself and others for past transgressions. Remember that those who cause harm to others do so either purposely or unknowingly. Accept that in many circumstances, the problem lies with yourself, due to assuming the intentions of others or holding onto grudges. Accept responsibility for the choices you have made. Recognize that others who cause harm to themselves and others are doing so based on their own reactions to past circumstances. When you can change your perception and add in a dose of compassion, a previously bad relationship can begin to blossom into something beautiful. We witness this every day.
There will be those that it is best not to interact with.
Sometimes, you can’t avoid that person as much as you would like. In these circumstances, go within for strategies on how you can change your own perception of them. This may include increasing your own self-love and ability to forgive. Expressing kindness and whipping up a smile can be enough to change many of these relationships around.
We know that many of you are yoked to those with narcissistic attitudes. These people can be very hard to deal with. We understand, for we have remembrance of those experiences, as well. Recognize that those who always need to be in control and to be right are likely not going to change, no matter what you do or say. They have to awaken when they are ready.
Thus, in the meantime, you can make your life more pleasant by not engaging in the games they play. If they tell you to do something, you can respond with something as simple as, “Thank you, I will consider that.” If they are ready to go to war to prove they are right, then let them go to war with themselves. You don’t have to defend yourself or prove you are right. With a narcissist, you will never win, for they will turn everything around. So, save yourself the frustration and disengage from their conversation as gracefully as you can.
Remember the adage, “Every day is a gift, that’s why we call it the Present.”
Thus, each morning as you arise, acknowledge and give thanks for the gifts in your life. As you go about your day, ask yourself, “What can I gift myself with right now? How can I be a gift to those around me?” The trick is to keep a balance between the two. Thus, when you gift yourself and others, keep in mind this parameter, “What is in the highest degree of Love?”
As you begin to make more decisions based on love rather than fear, your life will unfold magically. Most of you are stuck in the past and overly concerned about the future. Yet, if you jump into the River of Life and go with the flow, you will experience many more blessings, right now, in the current moment. You have a few choices you can make each moment and most will be based on the feeling of being “nowhere” in your life… or being “now here” in your life. It is a choice. Choose wisely.
We love you beyond measure!
