It all comes down to a choice between love and fear

It all comes down to a choice between love and fear

It is 14th November 2015 and yesterday evening terrorists tragically killed a number of civilians in gun and bomb attacks and held others hostage in Paris. At the time of writing the death toll stands at 127. This comes just a week after a Russian plane was taken down in Sinai, Egypt, killing everyone on board.

Although there are a few people blaming Muslims and refugees, it makes a pleasant change to see so many social media posts focusing on love and empathy rather than blame.

In previous posts I’ve talked about the coming of the Golden Age. I believe the world is changing. People are changing. We are starting to wake up and smell the coffee. Change has to start with us. In the words of Ghandi, we have to ‘be the change’.

The light is shining on to the world and our collective light is getting stronger. The darkness will not go without a fight however and I believe what is happening is caused by the dark fighting back. I would like to say that love always conquers hate, unfortunately I don’t think it’s as simple as that. In previous posts I’ve talked about the law of attraction and that what we focus on is what we get. This is amplified by the collective consciousness. As a collective consciousness, we have the choice whether to focus on love or fear. I believe the Golden Age IS coming. The question is will we make it easy or difficult? Will it take more of these disasters or even Armageddon before we will accept it? Or will it be easy? We have the choice. We can focus on love or we can focus on fear. What will you focus on?

Off With the Faeries

Anyone that knows me well will tell you that I’m regularly absent minded, also known as ‘off with the faeries’. This causes me to be forgetful, clumsy and ungrounded. A bit like Phoebe from Friends or Bridget Jones. The first person to notice it was my fourth driving instructor, who said it was a challenge teaching me how to drive and that he had to teach me to drive on auto-pilot. Anyone that’s been driven by me can relate to that.

I had a funny incident earlier this week. I went for a lovely walk through the woods and by the River Orwell in order to combat my fatigue and lethargy. It was approaching sunset and I was the only one there. It was quite magical and I imagined the faeries and elementals playing amongst the grass and the bushes.

Suddenly I heard some beautiful faery music that conjured up images of a faery sitting on a toadstool and playing a flute. I looked around. There was no-one to be seen. It was baffling. Could it really be faeries? The sound seemed to be coming from the undergrowth close to the river, behind a ridge. I tiptoed closer and peered over the edge, but there was nothing to be seen. Curiouser and curiouser.

I suddenly realised that I had inadvertently set off iTunes on my phone and that’s where the music was coming from.

New Moon Abundance Cheque – this actually works!

Law of Abundance Cheque

In June 2015, my friend Ali Basil sent me a picture of a cheque. This was similar to one I’d previously downloaded from ‘The Secret’ website and my first thought was “I’ve got one of those and it hasn’t worked”. As I looked closer though, I could see this was different. Ali instructed me to write my own and put it in my money corner at new moon. Although I didn’t really think it would work, I followed Ali’s instructions and to my amazement I received £1200 into my bank account the very next day. This month I have done the same. Remember abundance isn’t always about money. You can be abundant in many ways. Whatever the Universe blesses you with, remember to be grateful and say thank you. May you be blessed with wealth and abundance. And so it is. Exercise On the next new moon write your own abundance cheque and put it in your money corner. Write ‘Thank you’ on the back. Click here to find out when the next new moon is. Click here to find out where your money corner is. Watch out for abundance coming into your life, make a note of it, be grateful and say thank you.

As It is in Heaven

Many believe that when Jesus prayed that “God’s will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven” he was talking about the times we’re living in now. The time when a ‘Golden Age’ will come to the Earth.

The energy around us is changing and has been for some time.  Mother Earth is also evolving, as is mankind. It is time for humanity to wake up and smell the coffee and I believe that is what is happening. The people have been subdued for too long and now people are standing up and questioning the powers that be. In my previous article, 2012 – End of the World or Golden Age of Peace?, I wrote, “for too long the world has been controlled by governments, religions and multi-national banks and corporations. The time has come when people are refusing to continue being repressed and are taking things into their own hands. Prime examples of this are the revolutions in the Middle East, Occupy Wall Street and websites such as Wikileaks andDemand Progress.”  Internet TV channel ‘The People’s Voice’ gives people the opportunity to express views and opinions that would not otherwise be broadcast by the mainstream media.

These are exhilarating times as more and more people are becoming spiritually awakened. Actor and comedian, Russell Brand, is calling for what he calls a ‘spiritual revolution’.  Brand says that “politics just needs to be the administration of certain spiritual principles… We are all one. We’re all together and every individual’s rights need to be respected… Oneness, togetherness, tolerance of one another and making sure that everyone is taken care of.” Another exciting development is that spiritual author  Marianne Williamson is running for Congress in the US.

People are starting to become more altruistic and are taking things into their own hands by making positive changes. A prime example of this is Tangelo Park, where self-made millionaire, Harris Rosen, reduced crime by 50% and increased the high school graduation rate by 100% by offering free day care and scholarships for all graduates.

As I mentioned in another previous article, 2012 – The End of the World as We Know It, “I believe we are witnessing… the end of a world fuelled by greed, hatred and fear; the beginning of a Golden Age of peace, love and happiness.”

I am often criticised for being an idealist and I reply, “I am proud to be an idealist. If everyone in the World was an idealist, it would be a much better place.”

Another Beautiful Day

It’s a beautiful day again. It may be cold and grey outside but it’s always a beautiful day in recovery. Always a beautiful day when you’re connected to Divine source energy. 

How to Get What You Want – Change the Subject

Change the subject or as Abraham Hicks puts it, “get off the subject.” When we have problems we seem to be addicted to talking about them. It’s as if we think that if we talk our problems enough we will find a magical solution or someone will wave a magic wand. In fact, the opposite is true. When we keep talking about our problems, we are focusing on what we don’t want and the message we give to our unconscious mind and the universe is that we want more of the same. The answer is to hand our problems over to a higher power, trust and surrender. I have found that this has two benefits. Firstly I have the serenity that comes from trusting and knowing that everything is going to be OK. Secondly, the quicker I do this, the faster the solution comes.

Having said all that, it is important to acknowledge our problems and notice the feelings they bring up. It can be healing to talk about them with a trusted friend or advisor. There is a difference between acknowledging our problems and repeatedly complaining about them. This is a lesson that I am still learning. The more I practice, the easier it gets.

Exercise

Notice when you are talking about your problems. Ask yourself if you’re acknowledging your problems in a healthy way or repeatedly complaining about them.

Acceptance is the Answer

“And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation – some fact of my life unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing, happens in God’s world by mistake. Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept life completely on life’s terms, I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and my attitudes.” – The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous

God’s Will Today Prayer

When I say God, I mean the God of my understanding; my higher power, the Universe, the Angels, the Divine, my Higher Self, Buddha, The Tao. I believe in all of those things and I believe that  they are inside me. I am the Universe. God is within me. We are all one and all part of the Divine. We are part of the universe and the universe is part of us.

For sometime now I have been healing through means of recovery programmes that encourage me to admit that I’m powerless and hand my problems over to God. I have no problem handing over my problems to God, although admittedly, sometimes I forget. When I first considered the idea of admitting that I’m powerless however, I felt a huge amount of resistance. “I am powerful. I have already made a number of significant changes in my life. I have had a number of successes,” I said to myself. After considering this and journaling about it I realized that I am powerful, by the grace of God. The Divine within me is what makes me powerful and without that I am nothing. My life is always smoother and more successful when I put my life in God’s hands.

Based on learnings from these programmes and teachings such as those of Marianne Williamson and Doreen Virtue, I say the following prayer every morning:

Dear God and the Angels,

Please send me the willingness to do your will and get out of the way so that your will can be done. Please show me clearly what your will for me is.

What would you have me do today? Where would you have me go? What would you have me say and to whom? What would you have me wear? How would you have me do my hair? How would you have me serve humanity?

Thank you. And so it is. Amen

I can hear some of you questioning and even ridiculing the part where I ask what I should I wear and how I should do my hair. This feels right for me and I believe that nothing is too small for God and the Angels to help with. I think my Angels enjoy helping me choose my clothes. They are my girlfriends after all. In my minds eye, I can see my angels pulling a dress out from my wardrobe and holding it up saying, “what about this one?”

I hope this prayer resonates with you and if so I encourage you to use it or devise your own. Enjoy the process and have fun with your higher power as you make choices together. Know that your Higher Power loves you and wants to wrap you up in comfort and security.
