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

WHY THE HEART’S PATH?? by Bryan Moss

When sharing with others that I co-created a website called The Heart’s Path I’m often asked how the name came about. Instead of giving a “new agey” kind of explanation with a lot of “Peace..Love..Doves…” I thought I’d give a more 3d, scientific based answer to support that thinking/acting from our Hearts is the true path.
Conventional scientific data shows us the average adult heart beats over 100,000 time as day. Doing so, it circulates approx. 2,000 gallons of blood throughout 60,000 miles of veins, arteries and other blood vessels. In recent years, science has shown that pumping blood may not be our heart’s main purpose. While mainstream science has always regarded the brain as being the master, throughout the ages ancient traditions regarded the heart as the true master organ of emotion, thought, personality, and then some.
In the early 1990’s a scientific discovery was reported and published in the journal NEUROCARDIOLOGY. While studying the relationship between the heart and brain scientists discovered about 40,000 sensory neurites (specialized neurons) that formed a communication network within the heart itself. These 40,000 neurites are in addition to the neurons that exist in the brain, along the spinal cord, as well as other smaller organs. This illustrates the profound communication that exists within the human body. The scientists came to regard the heart as the ‘little brain’.
As mentioned before, the relationship of the heart within the human has been described in the scrolls and scriptures of some of the most ancient spiritual traditions. The role of the heart is realized to have heart-based wisdom known as heart-intelligence, intentional self-healing, access to super learning abilities, precognitive abilities, independent communication with other organs, and more.
They discovered the heart’s little brain can work in harmony with the cranial brain AND can work independently of the cranial brain to learn, think, recall, and even sense our inner and outer worlds on its own! This entirely makes sense as an energy worker because I’ve experienced how our cranial brain (ego/logic) can’t comprehend anything outside of its own realm. Where as the Heart (love) has no limits and has no problem accepting anything the way it is because it comes from no judgement and acknowledges the divinity and beauty in all things/experiences. Again, our cranial’s brain has limits. The Heart’s brain is limitless.
The game changer is the resonance of energy between the two. The cranial’s brain would love to keep us in its world of struggles and confusion and ‘superiority’. All low vibratory resonances and yet, no comparison to the Heart’s brain functions coming from the higher vibratory resonances of unconditional Love and Grace.
I find that these scientific discoveries definitely support the saying, “Coming from the heart…..”. When making choices in life listening to our intuition (feeling with our Heart) can bypass all of the mumbo jumbo brain noise in the head and can be considerably more accurate. So when it’s time to react in any given situation, instead of going on auto-pilot from logic, taking a pause, and thinking about how I would react if I came from the loving space of my Heart is proving to be more effective along my spiritual journey. At first it takes practice to retrain myself from taking knee jerk reactions/thoughts from my cranial’s brain. But slowly and surely I’m getting the hang of it and the rewards from asking my Heart what to do are limitless, and thus, taking me along “The Heart’s Path”..Peace you Beautiful Souls.

 

 

Are you IN or OUT? by Bryan Moss

 I think of some words from the opening remarks from that old 1960’s Star Trek series, “..to boldly go where no man has gone before.” Who needs outer space exploration when there’s already plenty of exploring within your own body, mind and Soul/Heart? We’re raised to go ‘outward’ for help whenever something occurs. We’re told to ‘seek professional help’ when in all sorts of troubles. [Don’t get me wrong. If all of the sudden you’re having major chest pains get medical help ASAP. Don’t be stupid. Use discernment.] We’re raised to think, for the most part, that we can’t do it ourselves. ‘It’– meaning handling life’s circumstances as they occur. We’re raised to seek power. Seek ‘out there’ for answers. Look for that book with all the answers. Buy all the ‘spiritual’ gizmos and gadgets to help your life.
 But there’s one problem. You’re never happy and satisfied. You’re always looking for more. What’s that definition of ignorance? To keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect different results? So if looking ‘out there’ is a never ending quest of unsatisfying answers, then what?
 A suggestion….go the other way. WITHIN……. Within yourself. First and foremost, get back in touch with your Heart. Learn to feel again. Some of us have to relearn how to feel with our hearts again. We’ve become so busy protecting them, because of past heartaches, that we’ve forgotten how to feel again. And I mean REALLY feel…not think you know how to still feel. Really get in touch with your Heart. How? Remember how you use to love whomever or whatever? A past romance? The smell of your favorite thing baking in the oven? Your favorite pet? A rainbow after a rain? The tender kiss of a loved one? Just recall what that felt like. And then try an experiment. Take that feeling and apply it to yourself. How does that feel? Grateful or disdainful? Do you feel worthy of being loved? Of loving yourself? Or can you even do it? Chances are, like most of us at the start of our journey, you’re not that comfortable with it.
 Where does one go from there? Take a look at it. Why are you not comfy? When in your life did that mindset start? Not to get all New Agey and all, but usually everyone’s ‘stuff’ originates from childhood. I found when I started to take a look at those patterns in life I didn’t care for, and followed the patterns into the past, they always took me into my childhood. All of the programming and conditioning, all of the ‘free will thinking’ that was learned, any fears, phobias, reactions….all of it originated from when I was a very young whipper snapper. Can we blame our parents and teachers for raising us this way? Not really. It’s not their fault because they were raised the same way. They didn’t know any better.
 Your Heart always has the answers. Start feeling with your Heart again.  Treat yourself and meet your inner child. Get to know her/him again. Many people are afraid to do this journey. It’s confronting. It reveals our shadow aspects. It requires honesty. It  requires persistence. It requires patience to listen to our inner child’s needs and unexpressed feelings. And in time, we find ourselves reframing our perspectives of past hurts and heartaches to healthier ones. We find little “lessons”. We start to rediscover and feel the Love within. We rediscover the God source as we remove the layers of hurts and heartaches from our past.
 A quick personal experience: A few years ago, through Self-Unification and Transcodes, I did my first Inner Child transmission. After closing my eyes and recalling heartfelt feelings with the intention of meeting “little Bryan”, there was 5 yr. old Bryan standing in front of me. Shy. Not sure what to do. I greeted him and asked him if he’d like to sit beside me and talk. He began sharing stories of perceived past ‘wrongs’ at his age that mom and dad did. He eventually sat on my lap and I held him as we cried in each other’s arms. I remember telling ‘little Bryan’, “They (my parents) didn’t know any better Bryan. They truly did love you. They were trying the best they could with whatever they knew at that time. They always loved you. They just didn’t know any better.”
 After that session I felt like a million pounds was lifted off my shoulders. I felt noticeably lighter. These days, because of having done several sessions with ‘little Bryan’, I’m more understanding of other people. Eventually I realized all of those other people have their own ‘little Bryans, or Berthas, or Gertrudes, or Sams..within them…just waiting to be acknowledged and loved again.
 So are you In or Out?
 With respect and Love,
Bryan
