2019 SUMMER SOLSTICE MESSAGE
June 21st at 11:54 a.m.
We often see ourselves as recipients, either of something good or something bad. We feel stuck in an order of things that someone else made up – a world that churns us through the butter of life, without using our potent life force – the power of creation that is inherently ours.
But what if, instead of being meek, powerless beings not yet formed, we are really one Creative Force with our Maker and with all life. Right now – before being any more spiritual, smarter, or developed. What if, in reality, there is no separation between ourselves and everything else? People are always making distinctions between “us” and “them,” but we’re all in this together. When we feel inspired, is it us or the Creator (Life Force) running through us? Does it have to be one or the other? Perhaps it is both at the same time. What if we don’t make a distinction? What if we just glory in expressing our gifts, and then sharing them with everyone?
What would happen – how would life be different if we took a leap in consciousness now? If we opened to a larger view of the Universe and our place in it? One with no dichotomies between serving that which we call Godness, and being an integral part of the service. What would happen if we stopped believing in hierarchies or separateness? Just – everything valued and appreciated, without placing anyone on a higher or lower rung of the ladder – including ourselves.
Think of it – when we were young children, we felt wonder because we just knew ourselves to be a part of everything. We experienced the world without qualifying judgments. Everything was available to us. We were beautiful and we saw beauty in everything.
One of the great sadnesses of life is feeling so different from others that you can’t find a place or space comfortable enough to be yourself. Or somehow, you surmount those challenges, and achieve success in your art, or field of study, but you are always looking over your shoulder, waiting for that criticism, lack of appreciation, or the end of the success. And then you feel alone again. This often happens to entertainers and musicians after they’ve “made it.”
Often, we wait for permission or tacit approval before we’re willing to express our true selves. What we don’t realize is, that’s backwards. It’s only by being willing to unequivocally be ourselves, express ourselves, and enjoy ourselves, that those who will really accept and support us will come and be part of our circle of true friends. Our true vibration has real power, attracting those of similar vibration, as well as those who wish to experience what we have to give. The others will ultimately fall away or our circumstances will change, as if by magic. But it’s not magic – unless everything is (Now there’s a concept!) Not unless magic is the truth of vibrational attraction and repulsion. If there’s no resistance for the repulsion to velcro onto, it won’t stick for long, and we’ll be free.
Here are some ways to apply your power in your life:
Today, instead of telling ourselves either that we are the masters over all creation or peons with no power, let us say instead, I BELONG! Let us know ourselves as part of all life, part of all that has been created, part of all that continues to create the world.
Join your power with the heightened power of the Solstice to see our country and the world at peace. Envision this with your whole heart.
The next time you think you know what limits on the consciousness of some beings in the animal kingdom are, open up your own consciousness to the fact that we humans have put them into rigid classifications, made erroneous decisions about who they are, what they can and cannot do, and what their relationship to us is. If we knew how exquisitely they serve us, we would weep with gratitude. Bless them and let yourself belong to them.
And today, try forgiving someone from your past who didn’t recognize how valuable and beautiful you were. Have compassion for the suffering they must have lived with, that made them unable to give you that acknowledgement – and then give thanks that you don’t have to be saddled anymore with the same awfulness.
YOU BELONG TO LIFE!
