I’m unsure of whether it’s because of all this mall time, or the season itself, or just being more tuned in, but what I’ve been noticing lately is the huge disparity between rich and poor right now. I know, it’s always there, sure. But currently, it seems so blatant.
What I heard when I woke up today is precisely within this theme. The images I was shown were not nice. Neither is this situation.
There is never a simple nor quick solution to epic problems like this, or like our own personal growth work. Fortunately though, we CAN contribute to the healing of both.
You all know that I don’t care in the least whether you believe what I do. I merely ask that you don’t discount it, or anyone else’s values. We learn through sharing. Education is about the back and forth of knowledge and experience.
What I have complete faith in is that we are able to help others. Can we give money or time? Certainly. We can also give of ourselves on a spiritual level.
Do we see suffering all around us? Sadly, yes. Can we assist in ending this? Absolutely. It’s called prayer and meditation and sending loving thoughts and focused energy. Label it what you like, but just please try to do it often.
Our message this afternoon arrived to say that we must see the ones who are in need (both rich and poor), and send them light and love and caring from our heart and soul. Just take your Quick 3 Minutes and shoot those darts of compassion out into the world. (Making sure to start with yourself.)
Is it really that simple and easy? Why yes, yes it is. And when I stood before our card altar earlier, this was the draw that showed us the way to complete our task.
‘Be very gentle with yourself at this time. Surround yourself with gentle people, situations, and environments.’
Sandalphon wishes to help you feel peaceful and centered, and he strongly advises that you begin by listening to gentle music. Play it wherever you go.
Talk quietly, and engage in slow, rhythmic movements such as swaying to music or a gentle yoga session. Don’t engage in battles at this time. Instead, retreat from conflict while you revive your spirit and become even stronger.
Delay decision making at this time. You’ll know exactly what to do when you emerge from your gentle retreat.
Working with Archangel Sandalphon:
Sandalphon’s aura is a calming and cool shade of turquoise, like the translucent tropical ocean. Meditate upon this color, or hold the stone associated with his energy – turquoise – and feel your heart rate and breathing become quieter.
Sandalphon can help your words and actions to be kind and gentle yet powerful. As the archangel associated with music, you can feel his presence strongly when you listen to music, sing, or play a musical instrument.”
This is exactly the time of year to practice this behaviour. Also, the angel told us to.
Are we swamped and overloaded with rushed plans and horrible traffic? Constantly! Which is why those quiet moments we take to heal the world and recharge ourselves are VITAL.
When we shun the negativity and mindset of “GAH – I’LL NEVER GET IT ALL DONE ON TIME!” then we are rising above those lower fields of energy. We are walking in beauty and living in love. Our world becomes a haven of lovingkindness, not frenzied anxiety.
