September message of the month – Hold On and Let Go

by Shiela Reed

Hold on and Let go Рhas been a theme for me this whole month it seems.  Each moment and experience in all areas of my life keep pointing out that we are always doing one or the other and sometimes both at once.

Oddly enough (or maybe not so odd by now ūüėČ , it seems to be the most prevalent times I can see it this way is when I’m centered and grounded and still in my own heart space.

I know it seems a little bit of a broken record, but it truly is the “make it or break it” pivotal zone in all we are… without it – we can never really be sure and trust that we are headed down our true path, because choices end up at the whim of our ego mind.

So as we have already moved through this month somehow!.. There is a new energy shift coming into October and one of my mentors through TransCODES shares some great information about this and it’s worth taking note, specifically¬† the following from¬†¬†http://www.transcodes.com/blog/4592588517/22nd-28th-September-2018-Collective-Energies-Tips-(Week-39)-Equinox—Ready-Or-Not/11328430

“ETHERIC BUZZ ALERT from 25th September 2018:¬†*** ETHERIC BUZZ ALERT *** Incoming Energies (Equinox, Full Moon and #OctoberRevolutionEnergies) overwhelming for empaths atm. Don’t beat yourself up for being tired or low-balling. Give yourself space and RELEASE ALL EMOTIONS #eyeofthestorm #bifurcation #collectiveenergies”

This is especially if you are already aware of being extra sensitive to energies around you.¬† It’s a very important time to be able to tap into your inner guidance and know when to “hold on or let go or do both”.¬† This shift will be occurring regardless of if we are “ready or not”, so being able to do this in the coming months in a way that is true to each of us, will likely mean we need to spend extra time grounding, lightly reflecting, letting go, and ultimately allowing our process and journey to unfold.¬† Oh, and also doing this over and over again and moment to moment sometimes. ūüôā

We do not need to be passive during this, instead there is a need to be actively engaged and connected – but within our inner space where our “real us” is already communicating with our divine light.¬† This is our “true”…

So as we all contemplate the holding on, letting go, and yin/yang of it all Рremember to be present in each moment  Рallow yourself space to grow and heal and be open to trust in the unfolding while you continue to participate in the journey.

See you in October!

Much love and blessings

LETTING GO AND SURRENDER by Bryan Moss

¬†Every now and then I find myself reflecting on experiences in the past which helped me grow on my journey. I was thinking about how much us humanoids have a tendency to accumulate things. Thus, the “need” to have something. Some say you can’t get enough land, others collect knick knacks from buttons to automobiles, and yet some people do anything to acquire more money in any way, shape, or form. What are they looking for? Security? Safety?
¬†Over a year ago a MRI discovered “something” in my colon. Around 45 minutes after the MRI, in the time it took me to drive back to work and be working for a little while, a nurse calls me on my cell phone requesting me to see the doctor ASAP after seeing the MRI scan. (GULP!) I drop everything and GO!
¬†During the next thirty minutes or so it seemed like all of my past experiences, in this life time, flashed before my eyeballs. Every situation, person, object, possessions..I mean everything. Any grudges I still have (like with my brother since the spring of 2016), the extra, unused clothes in my closet, my ‘favorite’ knick knacks, some of my cherished wood carvings/sculptures, the rude coworker I put up with, my wallet, how recent is my cell phone, my books, my plants….all of these ‘meaningful’ things/situations/objects turned into blah, blah, blah….POOF! Instantaneously, they had no meaning at all. What became important for me was Self<–>Love. And not in an egotistical way. Self Love as in accepting and being grateful for the opportunity to be who I am. A loving child of Source.
 I AM THAT I AM.
¬†Within thirty minutes, between leaving work, driving, and the doctor entering the room– I had Let Go of the 3D world. All of the ‘importance’ of anything and everything didn’t mean anything to me anymore. Experiencing and Feeling Love was the center of my being.
¬†Thirty minutes later the doctor walks into the exam room and pulls up the MRI results onto the screen. “This is an infection”, stated the doctor, “and we’re afraid it could turn into colitis. I’ll give you antibiotics to take for it for the next 10 days. You should schedule a colonoscopy ASAP.”
¬† I didn’t come out of that exam room bummed out and beating myself up over the symptoms. Instead, I knew from my energy training and feeling that in allowing Self Love, I was safe and could get this handled. The doctor said the MRI Tech made a comment that he was surprised I noticed the infection going on in my colon when the infection was in it’s very early stages. I attribute that to all of the self management energy training I’ve been partaking in since March of 2016. Six weeks later (the earliest available time I could get a colonoscopy scheduled) the test results were clean as a whistle.
¬†“See you in another ten years”‘ said the doctor.
¬†It’s those last five minutes of that thirty minute travel period I recall the feelings of—-importance morphing into unimportance, neediness morphing into neutrality, which morphed into allowing myself to feel LOVE increasing the more I Let Go and Surrendered every/anything. I felt light as a feather (even lighter, if possible) by the time I parked in the underground structure, took the elevator to the 2nd floor, and viewed the MRI’s results. And I discovered waves of compassion filling my Heart for Everything. I totally let go and gave everything to Source. All of the material 3D stuff didn’t matter. Nothing. Compassion filled my 4th chakra. And all of this beauty from within my Heart. Not just thinking about it all, but Feeling everything.
  Thank you for letting me share.
Humbly yours,
 Bryan

A Labor Day message

Thoughts on Labor Day – America is already pretty great

by Shiela Reed

Despite our mistakes (for which we continue to learn) America is already great… (thanks John McCain for reminding us of this)

As I personally reflected on the funeral services of Senator McCain, I was reminded of a belief I have always carried deep in my heart. We must truly LOVE at our core, to be able to grow through hard times. I must love myself, despite my short comings and be willing to grow,¬† while along the way I need to feel HOPE for what lies ahead. When we are in that kind of “divine space”, we naturally can show this same graciousness to others. This is true of my own journey as well as the path of my country/nation.

We have MUCH to be thankful for and much to continue to learn and grow from. When we choose to focus on how far we have come by accepting and acknowledging our “mistakes”, misguided choices, and need to “remember” ALONG WITH having goals, visions for “better”, and HOPE for the future, we can be united.
If we choose to focus ONLY on the mistakes or¬†how far we still have to go or¬†have a desire to “erase” our history, we will tend to be divided.

It is much like our own individual energetic work, if we become stuck in the past, we will tend to be “depressed” as we lament over “what could have or should have been”.¬† ¬†It’s an ego illusion and trap.¬† ¬†Just as if we become so focused on the future there is a tendency to become overly anxious, nervous and fearful.¬†Another ego trap…¬†¬†both of which cause us to miss opportunities we have today.¬†¬†

As with anything, there is a need for balance of the two. We cannot have a “peaceful” life of our own if we do not find our way to our hearts center and allow for the two to become one… yes, we want memories and we want to “learn” from our past. We would not want to ignore or “erase” those realities nor do we want to become “stuck” there as if they were the “best of days” only – otherwise we limit and stifle what comes next and the possibilities of “newness” in our future.¬† At the same token, we evoke fear if we only worry about the future and thus try so hard to “control” everything in it’s pursuit.

Maybe instead of always pointing out the “bad”, the mean, the hate… we could focus more on the “good”, the kindness, and the love that is all around us. Again, yes, it may not be “wise” to ignore an obvious “negative” situation and to “defeat” it and decrease the growth of it, for which the “light” may need to be shined upon it by “calling it out”… but it is THE WAY in which it is done and from where WE individually CHOOSE to do it… the spirit of our intentions is what will guide the growth of the outcome.

If it is out of love, then even the firmest of stances are heard and felt differently than of it is from an ego illusion based place of fear, hate, and/or judgement.

So on this US holiday for which we tend to reflect as both a nation and as individuals, I share my own hope that we all are able to be “open” enough to hear our hearts and share a deeper level of love that embraces commonality rather than division.¬† We can be firm in our ” heart based boundaries” with love and kindness. We can very much coexist even with differences.. after all, that is what makes us truly humbly grateful within ourselves and ultimately great together.

Peace, love, and blessings to all
