My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Your earth is in a state of incredible and rapid growth. The recent eclipse acted like a magnet bringing together the polarities of light and darkness within every human being. The subsequent solar flares create a mass influx of light that is causing incredible movement.
There is no more pushing one feeling aside while acknowledging another. You are all being forced to acknowledge all that is inside of you. You are feeling your joys and your fears, your hopefulness and your worry, your love and your rage. You are feeling the sadness you’ve pushed deep down within you, and the anger you’ve tried to gloss over with “nice.” Your corks are popping.
Some of you look like champagne bubbling over with joy. Others look like floods of emotion. Some look like whirling vortices of chaos, while so many look like volcanoes ready to blow. It is not a wonder that your mother earth is doing the same.
So is the world coming to an end? No, dear friends, the world is growing. Humanity is purging and releasing old dense energies – sometimes in elegant, kind, expressive, and mature ways, and other times in horrible crimes against humanity, violent upheavals in weather and earth’s changes.
While this might seem frightening to some of you, the truth remains the same. Live and abide in love and you will be safe. If you are angry, look at the anger and love yourself enough to ask what it is trying to tell you about you. What do you need to change? If you are sad, how can you comfort yourself? If you are frustrated, what do you need to do to create movement in your life?
Love is available so strongly right now that the slightest loving thought taps you into streams of infinite goodness. You are being challenged to love in spite of it all, and challenged to love yourselves more than ever.
For just a moment allow us to assist you. Breathe. Imagine a lovely blue light filling your mind, heart, body, and soul. Breathe again. See this light filling your lungs, traveling throughout your bloodstream, and into every cell of your body.
Breathe again. See the light emanating from you, surrounding you, permeating you with God’s peace and protection. Imagine this light finding pockets of anger, sadness, or any other dense energy in your aura, soothing it, and gently flowing it out of you as energy.
Remain in this state, breathing in the blue light for some time until you truly feel at peace. Now imagine your beautiful blue orb, Mother earth, also surrounded and permeated with this beautiful peace, for she too is in need of comfort.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.

The earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods don't surprise me. Neither do the volcanoes. I feel these things in my body and soul as emotional energies, usually a few weeks in advance, and I see the waves of people feeling them as well. The world is shaken, stirred, and now blowing up in various ways. Even Mother Earth is venting to release the pressure.
My inbox is full of emotional storms. I wake up to emails talking about death, bleeding hearts, hatred, unforgiveness, suicide, and despair, all from dear souls who are simply going through some very tough times. My heart goes to each and every one. I do my best to be compassionate and share the wisdom I’ve been given.
I have to be careful, however, to maintain my own joy, or I start getting sucked into the pain. In that space, I’m of no use to anyone. If I see the world as broken, I support its brokenness. If however, I can simultaneously witness the pain with compassion while focusing on the ever-present perfection trying to emerge, then I can truly help to elevate souls.
So when I started getting cranky last week and seeing “stories” rather than “souls,” I knew it was time for some time alone. It is a rare thing when I don’t want to serve, but last week all I wanted to do was run away from the world’s pain. So I did. I know better than to ignore my own heart. I turned off my emails and headed for the hills.
On a beautiful, crisp, blue-skied, sunny Sunday I loaded up the car and hit the open road. The farther I drove, the clearer I felt. I had no commitments and no schedule. Windows unrolled, hair waving in the wind, country music blasting on the radio, it was just me, God, and the angels. I felt like I could breathe again.
I parked, tossed the camera in the backpack and wandered into the forest in silence. Therein nature’s cathedral, among towering aspens and ancient pines, with grasses up to my knees and ferns up to my waist, I reconnected with my own soul. Using my backpack as a pillow, I laid down on a massive boulder surrounded by ferns and trees reaching skyward. Their leaves fluttered. Their trunks bent and swayed in the wind. Sunlight dappled warm shine on my face while chilly breezes danced across my skin.
In the ever-present now, I drifted into sweet slumber to the sound of chirping birds, ravens crying overhead, and the roaring whoosh of wind through the trees. The last thing I remember is the smell of baked grasses and Christmasy pine…
Sometime later, I awakened to the plunk, plunk, plunk of golden aspen leaves raining down upon me. It was a long time before I could move. I had melted into all-that-is. I felt invigorated, inspired, and deeply passionately in love with life… just in time to come back and help people deal with death, divorce, suicide, the horrific massacre in Las Vegas, and the volcanic emotions arising within so many that mirror Mother earth’s current venting.
It is only in being present to, and honoring our feelings that we can return to joy. It is only in our joy that we can truly be the light and beacon of hope that this world requires.
Here are a few pointers to help you weather the torrents of emotion that might be rising up from within:
1. Honor your feelings... All of them
The angels can’t stress this enough. Every feeling is coming from Love that wants to rise up within you. Like a volcano, however, if the emotional pressure builds up for too long, we are likely to erupt at some point in time.
If you are angry, ask yourself, “How can I better care for myself? What do I need to change? How can I be part of the solution?” The answer might be as simple as getting enough rest, exercise, and good food. The answer might be the need to change an attitude. The answer might be suggesting you get to work helping others. If you’re sad, ask, “How can I comfort myself in a healthy way? How can I create change?” Remain open. Trust the answer.
Listen to your feelings. Don’t run from them. They have valuable messages for you.
2. Don’t judge yourself
It is so easy, as spiritual people, to judge ourselves when we’re not in a great space. Instead, relax. Be compassionate with yourself. You’re human. Rather than wasting time judging, just tell yourself,
I’m sad/angry/jealous… and that is OK.
Let’s see what this feeling is attempting to say.
The minute you own the e-motion, you allow it to be in-motion and it starts to move through you.
3. Remember, honoring your feelings makes you a contribution
Because I had taken care of myself this weekend, when I heard of the horrific shootings in Las Vegas, I was able to bear witness to the pain without being engulfed by it. I was able to immediately go into Silent Presence, pray, and send love. Had I not honored my feelings I would have fallen into the world’s despair and been useless.
Instead, I know the deceased are celebrating their homecoming in heaven, knowing a deeper love than we can ever imagine and wishing that for us. The murderer is lost in darkness, being watched by angels who are waiting for him to find the light so they can cast out his demons of despair. The countless souls who remain in grief and pain are lovingly tended by angels and, if willing, are going to see immense growth and change in their lives. You never value life so dearly as when you know you might not have it. I know that from personal experience.
As I stumbled on a website littered with sad and disturbing photos, I was also brought to tears by the best in humanity – a man who literally laid down his life to save his wife, and many others who willingly jumped to cover those closest to them. The Christ showed up in human hearts in the midst of such tragedy. The love is there even in the darkness. I could never have held this focus had I not honored my feelings this weekend.
When you listen to the love beneath your feelings, you are more able to see and share love with the world.
This week, love yourself through your own pains, fears, tears, anger, sadness, and any other state that feels less than loving. Always and forever, Love is trying to surface.
Love you all!
