A FEATHERED MESSENGER by Bryan Moss

A bird saved my life! Yes, you read this right. A tiny bird, like the size of a wren, saved my life. On a Thursday, after work, I was running an errand. The only parking spot from the store I was shopping at was a couple of blocks down from it. After parallel parking I was walking on the sidewalk and getting ready to cross a side street…. to continue walking towards my destination. At the edge of the curb of the street was a telephone pole’s shadow crossing the end of the sidewalk along that curb..Just as I was about to cross into the shadow and step off the curb, “Chirp!”, I noticed a tiny dark “blob” move from the side of the sidewalk towards me, coming from within the pole’s shadow. I stopped and noticed it was a wren. “Chirp” exclaimed the wren. She was looking up at me. Then she took a couple of more tiny steps and flew off. “WHOOSH!” A car had just then come from the main street’s side (my left) and took a fast, hard right turn cutting into the street curb I was about to walk off of!. Then it continued speeding on down that side street.
Then the realization hit me. If I hadn’t of stopped and noticed the “shadow” and heard her “Chirp!” I wouldn’t of stopped walking and probably would have been hit by that car!
I was, as they say, God smacked!!
As I reflect on this experience I’m very grateful for my fine feathered Friend/Angel. She taught/reminded this energy worker of a couple of things:

**Being Present…Reflecting on my spiritual journey there was a time when I would’ve blown off that “Chirp!” and kept walking as usual. Who knows? Maybe then I would’ve noticed the noise of that car and stopped and looked before stepping into the street? Maybe not. All I do know, on a first hand basis, is this time I noticed the “Chirp!” and looking below me was a tiny ball of a shadow within the larger shadow. Upon hearing the second “Chirp!” it registered that it was a bird, which eventually showed to be true as she walked into the sunlight. I gradually learned about the virtues of being present after I started meditating for a while. Then I found it gradually worked it’s way into other areas of my life.

**Be Supportive:…All life emanates energy and is interconnected one way or the other. Support one another, some way and some how. You don’t need a lot of money. Smile to someone as they cross paths with you. Pausing and allowing a car into the lane, even though it’s “ahead of you and then it’ll be in front of me”.

** Be Grateful Of EVERYTHING…My tactile senses seem to be more ‘sensitive’ since that day’s “saved by a bird”experience”. I’m on full ‘alert”, but not ‘alert’ in a fear based way. I guess I mean more heightened. A little hard to describe. So forgive me if I sound like a nut case.

All of these “messages” were delivered to me on my journey. Some would say God sent the little bird to save me. Others would say the bird was an angel in disguise watching over me. And yet others would comment how we’re all interconnected–trees, air, water, sky, animals, dirt, sand, flowers, grass, wind, fire, sun, moon, stars….and we’re all designed to be responsible and watch each other’s backs and be there for one another. Without prejudice, without judging, without ignoring one another. Regardless of our daily routine of distractions. Computers, cell phones, mirrors, social media, any kind of media, that tiny voice in our heads, traffic ALL have seeped into our lives slowly but surely. Becoming preoccupied in our “own” worlds we gradually loose any connection to anything alive, thus, we stop being present.
As an energy worker I view all energy as being in different levels/ways/forms (live’s experiences) while providing me the gift (lessons) of making choices. This is discernment on a whole different level.
Do I take the red pill or blue pill?
Do I blow off that piercing “Chirp!” and (without paying attention) keep walking into a speeding car?
I’m very humbled and grateful for these past hours of reflection. And humbly, I bow down to my fine feathered friend and say, “Thank you for the lessons!!”
Later gators,
Bryan

November Message of the Month – The Power of Love/”Prayer”/Combined Energy with Intent

by Shiela Reed

The regular theme for this month has been about Love – and the appearance of “different forms” – yet as we find the root of the intentions, the ones done with the “love” and of “trust – in divine right timing” with the collaboration of the two is what has been swirling around this month.  I wrote this earlier in the month and had not posted it and find today that it seems to fit with the “theme”…. so it is shared with you out of heartfelt gratitude and love as the message of the month.  I truly hope you have found your way through this month and find these words and the heart and love behind it, as the “cherry on top” for November….

I have and ALWAYS will believe in the power of “prayer”/good vibes/ love intended energy… whatever you want to call it… at the same time I am fully aware and also believe in “divine right timing”… so.. how does that fit together? Let me share a personal example….
Today (Nov 11 2018) my very elderly dog, Bosco, who has been with me through MUCH in life.. good and really not good… 16+ years worth at this point mind you… he is my “soulmate dog”.
Well, he woke up and had a new “issue”… his back right hip went out just while walking across the floor. To sum this up, here are his “issues”: separation anxiety most of his life (he is a rescue dog and has been with me since age 1 – our life together is yet another story 😊)
heart failure (meds since age 12),
Chronic Dislocated back left knee
And today this…

I share this to also create a story for you… I full well know and realize he will not be with me forever. Which is true of anyone or anything, ourselves included. So, while we KNOW this, I myself continue to be amazed at how I can still get so “off center”, that I am not present for today’s joy’s in my current life and become so enveloped with fear. Yet, embracing and then releasing the pains of the future that tend to so easily trap me in fear and worry is not as easy as “a wish, or desire, or words”… even knowing “nothing here we try to hold, is forever”… it takes that regular and frequent checking within, re-centering, re-grounding, and “catching it” before it goes into a “loop”…

I was already in a loop from the previous week, which was already added on to by the previous week… and I “knew” I had some things to “tend to”, but I chose to “put it aside”, wait, do it differently, I really don’t know.. except my inner me told me to address it back then, and I didn’t. My ego/mind latched on to the “fears” and away we went with story after story of “what if’s”…

So flash forward to today and this event…

I was in tears, I feared the worst, even knowing “if it’s time, it’s time, there is nothing I can do about it”… I did my best to allow myself to feel the fear, say it out-loud, let it fly into the wind, and accept what was to be, without having to “know it” right now. Of course I found myself wanting to “control”.. but what this situation did do was force a shift on me that desperately needed to be released…so, as it started to “unfold”, I felt my heart reference point say “let go of the pain”… this one situation is NOT what this is all about….
I then knew from my heart that my intentions for asking friends and loved ones for “prayers/good vibes” was to request the energetic support for me and Bosco to go through WHATEVER was to be next…
That is exactly what I believe these “requests” are about. A true self asking other true selves for “support” in a time of need… even when asking for something specific, our inner selves already are connected to the Divine and knows what we need… the mind just wants to be involved… so, even though we “pray” for healing and may mentally have an opinion about what that looks like, deep within, when we truly trust and have faith… we know whatever comes, is simply meant to be. We just may not be able to see the type of “healing” that we actually “really” need.

So, as I let go, and allowed for whatever support came forward to come to me and Bosco… I was able to release the majority of the previous several weeks worth of “stuff” and be in a place I needed to be, so I could lovingly be present in this important moment for me, my current situation and my honored relationship with my sweet furry companion.

As we went to the vet, Bosco was calm, and I knew within it was all “ok”.. whatever that ended up looking like, didn’t matter as much anymore. I surrendered… today, the news was not catastrophic, there were options, possible solutions, and while that made my mind stay on the background, I felt in my heart, the whole event was needed for healing… not just in Bosco…

And with that, I find great humbleness and gratitude in the power of “prayer”… I was not “alone”, the “energy field” of lovingness and truth was all around, and I felt safe to be present in my space, in each moment, with him and each situation the rest of the day.
Thank you friends for “holding space” for us today… know I will always intend to do the same for you.
Much love
Shiela

CHOICES Part 2 by Bryan Moss

SCROLL DOWN AND READ CHOICES PART 1 FIRST
Choices….Picking up where I left off in Part 1, being a student (forever) of energy work I’ve come to learn there is no “good” or “bad” when it comes to energy of any type. Energy is energy. Energy has no bias or concern. Energy doesn’t judge either. Energy doesn’t decide what’s good or bad. Energy has no invested interest in the outcome. This reminds me of the argument of guns. Are they good or bad? Well, do guns have emotions and thoughts? Do they go to G.A. (well Guns Anonymous, of course)? Do they stand up during the meetings and go,” Hi. My name is “six shooter” and I killed a squirrel today.” Most of the time the answer always leads to how is the gun being used? Which leads to who’s holding it? The same thing with energy. It’s how we choose to use it…
 …which brings us back to choices. To look at choices as being a form of energy is a tough one for all of us to wrap our minds around. I know I was raised to believe in dualism. No matter what happens we always put on a label of it being good or bad. We’re conditioned into thinking/judging everything and everyone, within every situation we encounter, by that basic criteria…”good” or “bad”. As children we get “good” grades or “bad” grades. Thus, we’re ingrained with “dualism”. Dualism externalizes life in general. The word “division” comes to mind, with that age, old war strategy…”Divide and Conquer”…which is the exact opposite of “Oneness”. Dualism is really a step away from Oneness. And a step closer to ego’s passion for judgement. And of course judgement entails “good” or “bad”….
 …here’s the tricky part…I’m learning to get rid of the concepts of “good” and “bad” and to acquire the art of observing from my Heart. The divinity within our Hearts comes from unconditional Oneness. My journey within has shown me Oneness is truth. Dualism is false. My journey continues to show me choices made from my Heart gives me clarity. Choices from my mind eventually gives me confusion and doubt, where “good” and “bad” are mixed right in there. My Heart space is also where I’m held accountable for any choices along my journey. Instead of blaming others, or circumstances, I try to accept whatever is presented and, from my Heart, DISCERN the choices I should make. Discernment dispels “good’, “bad”, “right’, “wrong” and certainly “dualism”. Discerning entails aligning with what’s true for my journey on planet 3D and sorting out the programming I was raised to believe were the ways of God. As written in a previous blog of mine, “ARE YOU IN or OUT?”, the only way I’ve learned anything, in regards to my inner truth, is going within and taking an unbiased look at myself….easier said than done, but necessary. The deeper I go down the rabbit hole the more apparent it is to me that “good” or “bad” are meaningless terms/concepts. Certainly NOT the sacred rules of life, nor my personal journey. I’m learning my favorable choices are made from discernment.
 The bottom line: Under the Truth umbrella: Choices=Discernment From My Heart
 In other words, instead of relying on evidence from “out there” to give me the tools to make choices in life, I always go within my Heart and then observe any situation from there.
 And then listen….and FEEL the choice before making it. Everyone has “Heart Strings” within. Play those strings with music of introspection, learn how to discern and then choose. If it turns out to be the wrong choice? Write it up to experience and make another choice.
 My journey has been, and will continue to be, about Choices.
With Respect and Love,
Bryan

CHOICES: Part 1 by Bryan Moss

 Choices. It’s all about choices. I’ve noticed my life’s journey is comprised of designs. Or designs comprised……..of dominoes? Each domino represents a choice. Slightly tip over one domino (a choice), which tilts, then falls onto the next domino (creating another choice)..and the journey continues. Is it fair to say one can choose to be on a journey or not? I don’t know about that. It seems to me all of us are on our own “journey” whether we acknowledge it or not. This journey being “life” in general.
 One person, let’s call him Guru Man, chooses to seek God in the mountains of Tibet while Sports Fan Man chooses to lay back in his favorite arm chair watching a football game on the T.V. set. Yet both are on a journey. Is one better than the other? I’ve come to realize…who am I to say? Guru Man is up in the mountains to have no distractions from the “outside” and be present. He’s looking to be at “one” with themselves/God. To be more “spiritual”. Some would suggest Guru Man is more evolved than Sports Fan Man, but is he really?
 There are no distractions for Sports Fan Man as he’s watching his favorite player catch that pass and paying attention to the stats. He’s being totally present. He’s at one with that T.V.set, his ball team, and every other sports fan of that game. Guru Man seeks to be and live love. Sports Fan Man is already loving very moment presented to him. He’s living his love. Between the two, who’s more “evolved”? Of the two journeys, which choice is more “meaningful”? Which is more “important”? Which choice is a good one and which is a bad one?
 How about neither. From an energy worker’s perspective I’ve discovered there are no good or bad choices. No right way or wrong way. I’ll share my findings in my next blog: Choices Part 2.
 Peace and Love,
Bryan
