Divine Love: Exercise 6.9

Yes Dear Ones,

So this one will be very helpful for people who seem to not know what they want to do with their life but would like to.

First, see yourself standing outside in a field with a friend on a snowy day. You look at each other and then you say, “Well, what do we do? We’re here in the field and it is snowing. I wanted us to do something but it doesn’t look like we have many options.” Luckily you have a sled so you two get on the sled and slide down the hill together having a wonderful time along the way. When you get to the bottom you see your house so you decide to go in and take refuge from the cold.
Again, you look at your friend and say, “Well, you didn’t answer before. What do you think we should do?” Your friend gets up and runs into the other room, so you follow. You begin playing video games and have a blast because this is the dance game you love. You are just having a wonderful time with each other and don’t even realize that you are stuck inside on a snowy day. Then after you danced for a while, and you have done as much dancing with that game as you can, you realize you are hungry so you both get a bite to eat.

Then you say to your friend, “Well, I guess you’re not going to say anything or try to answer this question but I have to ask. What should we do today? The day is going by fast and we still don’t have a plan for what we are going to do.” Your friend takes a sip of the milk that he is drinking and smiles at you and says, “Really? Do you not see what is happening?’ So you ask, “What is happening?” and he says, “Sometimes it is nice to have a plan but sometimes it is enough to just take action of some sort, for when you do that you will be lead to something that brings you more joy than if you just stayed in the same place. It doesn’t matter what we do as long as we do something that raises our vibration and brings us joy.” And you say, “But what about plans and goals? What about those things? Aren’t they good and helpful?” Your friend says, “Yes. If you have a clear goal then yes, by all means, work toward it. Especially if it lights you up. But during those times when you don’t have a clear goal, sometimes it is best just to take action with things that will bring you joy and then before you know it you will be inspired to do something or come up with a goal. Does that make sense?”

“Well, yes” you say. “Even while I asked you what we should do the last time, I was thinking about an idea I got for people when they are inside - a whole range of family games that they can do on rainy days that will keep them occupied and having fun together.” And your friend says, “Yes. That’s the spirit! Sometimes it is best just to keep moving in the direction of joy and you will be lead to the next inspiration. Sound good?” And you say, “Yes. Sounds good. Thanks!” Then your friend says, “Ok, now let’s get back to the dance game because I think I’m going to beat you this time!” You run off to the room to play with your friend, embracing your wonderful new learning about how to approach times when you don’t have clarity about what you want to do with the time in your life.

Divine Love: Exercize 6.8

Yes Dear Ones,

This will be a good exercise for anyone wishing to develop a stronger and clearer connection with the Divine that already exists within them.

First, stand in front of a mirror and imagine that you are surrounded by a large ball of light that is expanding. Look upward and see that this large ball of light is in fact expanding to include your Divine Soul Being, your personal connection to the Divine that resides several feet above you. Then see a beautiful silver cord of light extending down from the heart of your Divine Being that easily and lovingly glides down through the top of your head and anchors itself into your heart. Imagine that this light, as soon as it connects to your heart, spreads into every cell of DNA in your body. Immediately, you are one with this beautiful light that appears to be concentrated in your heart even though it in fact expands throughout your entire body.

Look back up at your Divine Soul Being and see that the circle of light that surrounds you both is now becoming a tube of light that continues into the heavens and extends to three feet on either side of you. Then say to yourself in the mirror, “I Am willing to know myself as the Divine Being that I AM and I AM willing to act, think, feel and move in accordance with the Higher Divine Will which is my truest nature. At the same time, I Am aware that acting in accordance with this Divine Will is so freeing, so fulfilling and so joyous that I desire to experience this as my Truth and to always act from this space. So say I. So be it.” Then, once you have said this while looking at yourself in the mirror, take a deep breath and see a golden orb of light float down the Silver Cord of your Soul Being into your heart followed by a blue orb of light, a pink orb of light, a green orb of light and then another blue orb. As this happens, you feel yourself growing stronger and lighter. Also after these orbs of light have come into your body, they settle in your heart and continue to expand until all of these lights are of equal size and extend to three feet around either side of your body.

While you look at yourself in the mirror, you begin to feel that this is who you really are – that these beautiful lights are your true divine nature. And as you are experiencing yourself as this combination of radiant lights, know that your desire to embody the beautiful vibration of these orbs will bring you closer to experiencing yourself as your true Divine Nature. Take a breath and give thanks to all of these lights. As you move from the mirror and go forward in your life these lights and your Soul Being are real and are always connected with you. For once you have consciously enhanced this connection, it is so and will only harmoniously and joyously expand in your life as you move forward.

Divine Love: Exercise 6.7

So this exercise is going to be for people that would like to open their hearts more to trust that life is truly here to support them in every way.

First, see yourself sitting on a park bench on a lovely day. The air is crisp and the sky is blue. You look next to where you’re sitting and you notice that there is no one there. You are quite alone and you feel a bit lonely but somehow you don’t feel as lonely as you have before. Suddenly you feel that there is someone sitting next to you and you see a sort of a vague form of light that is filling itself out. Within minutes there is an Angel sitting next to you. She tells you to rest your head on her lap so you do and you suddenly feel transported. It is a strange feeling – you are in your body but at the same time you feel that you are not in your body. You feel light and overcome with love and you realize that the Angel is taking you somewhere.

She is taking you to a beautiful area over the ocean to show you a screen on the sky. And as you look at it feeling very peaceful, without a care, and full of love you notice that she is showing you scenes from your life. The funny thing is that often there is so much light on the screen that you are unable to see the images clearly but somehow you are able to make out which parts of your life these scenes are from. You ask your lovely Angel why this is and she tells you, “Dear One, there is so much light on the screen because there were so many of us around you, lining up everything in your life so that you would go in the direction that was best for you and the most joyful.” You look at your Angel and ask about some particularly trying times in your life and the Angel says to you, “Really Dear One, those were the highest of all possible options. You needed to learn something and we shortened the experiences to the degree that were able to. More than anything, we were there to comfort you and to bring you peace because as you are creating your life and constantly asking to learn more, you are very open and also a powerful attractor drawing to you many circumstances and experiences. It is not for your highest good to experience all of them so we were there helping you to only allow ones that were for your absolute highest good. What you are left with, then, is the truth that if the experience is in your life, then it is there for a reason - either to help you grow or to show you how Divine you are.”

You look at your Angel and say, “Really? Would you show me the time that my family left me and we were not communicating at all. That was quite painful for me.” And so you watch as the Angel shows you scenes of that time and you are amazed. It is as if everything that you said and every thought that you had was in some effect cushioned by the Angels and you could see where you almost chose non-supportive actions but they were there to guide you to believe that another option was possible. You were amazed and grateful for the times that you followed their guided steps and you saw what happened when you didn’t follow that guidance in the form of gut feelings that you chose to ignore. Weeping, you look at your Angel and say, “Thank you. Is there anything that I can do for you? This is breathtaking. This is truly amazing and I am so grateful for everything that you have done for me.” Your Angel simply says, “Trust yourself, for in fact, We are One. The Universe will speak to you THROUGH you so the more you trust yourself, the more you will know that you are on the right track. That is the best you can do for me because we are always there to help you and nothing thrills us more than for you to reap the benefits of following your Inner Guidance. Except for maybe possibly a hug.” Smiling, you hug your Angel and suddenly find yourself back on the bench by yourself. Only now you feel more loved, more cared for and more trusting than you ever have.

Divine Love: Exercise 6.6

So Yes Dear Ones,
This exercise is for people that desire to intensify the light in their lives.

First, see yourself surrounded by a large circle of white light and imagine that this large light is also full of tiny bubbles of light. At the same time, imagine your heart expanding (you can do this by thinking of anything that makes you happy) which causes these tiny bubbles of light to expand as well. As your heart continues to expand, these bubbles of light float into your heart and cause it to glow. This continues until all of the small light bubbles that were on the outside of you are now inside of your heart except for the large bubble which is connected to your Higher Self.

Then, imagine yourself slowly rising and as you rise, you notice that this light seems to burst out of your heart like fireworks but somehow the light still remains on the inside of your heart as well. It is like the bubbles of light are seeds and they sprout these beautiful fireworks of light that fall onto all of the beings that inhabit your life: your friends, your coworkers, your family, your plants, your animals so that they all benefit from this lovely light that you are. And as you continue to harmoniously rise and radiate this light, there is a sense of calm that seems to infuse every part of your being.

You look upwards and notice that there is a connection that has been forged between you and the Divine and the special thing about this connection is that now that it exists it cannot be ignored and you don’t desire to ignore because it feels wonderful. You are also aware of the fact that simply because you desired to increase the light in your life, you affected the lives of everything and everyone else in your world. And as you are looking up gratefully at your beloved Soul Being another golden ray of light is delivered down from it and it grounds this light into your body. Every chakra lights up with this beautiful golden light as it plants seeds of its own in your being so that you will always have expanding light that causes expanding truth and harmony in every chakra and in every area of your life.

As you stay in this state you slowly float back down to earth and even as you open your eyes and look around you, you know that this lovely light is always within you. You know that it is always growing and is so very loving. You feel that since you now know that you have this connection to the light, it will only grow and be of benefit to all of life which is exactly why you wanted it.
