feminine spirit that has been reawakened in
all here on the planet, out of considerable
necessity, will help heal the Earth -- must be
reawakened for ultimate healing of the planet.
This is not about the battle of masculine and
feminine where many continue to get frozen in
time. It is not about war with each other.
It's about embracing the understanding of the
masculine and feminine within each of you so
that you can bring it as a piece of whole
truth, not half-truth.
of you have a masculine and feminine energy in
your being, and both need to be activated and
brought to an equal place. If you're doing
battle with the outside masculine and feminine
gender, you can assume that you are most
definitely in inner conflict with yourself.
You need the balance of both aspects of
masculine and feminine energy, which has
nothing to do with gender. It is about energy,
and this is why, of course, all the confusion
at this time which seems to he brought to the
focus of sexuality, when that is clearly not
the issue. The issue is of energy. So, when
you find others about you who are angry with
the opposite gender, ask them to look inside
and heal, not project more isolation and
separation to the outside world.
Earth at this time and all beings who walk
upon it need to be loved, need to he held,
need to be held in community, in connection to
Truth, not separate. It is time to bring
balance, because you cannot take the next step
without being in balance. You have been
walking on one foot. You must be at peace
--you must be balanced to take these next
steps, and for those of you who have this
illusion that being alone is balanced, you
need to take a further, deeper look inside.
You can be balanced on the inside emotionally
as much as you can be, but that is only one
piece or one side of the scale.
had to learn to do the solo to understand and
learn the dance. You had to learn to dance by
the self so that you did not dance in
dependence with another. However, one can only
hold energy so long by the dance of
themselves. This is nothing about
relationships of the past. This is about
connection to energy balances of the now, so
that you're walking Foundation and Truth, not
confusion and chaos, but balance and harmony.
Do not find it a coincidence that you will be
touched with a new heart-opening situation,
whether it be in the connection that you are
already in or a further one that will come
along the path. This is the new step to take
you higher. This next step needs to be taken
so that you can understand balance, because
when you start to travel multi-dimensionally,
you must be more connected to balance.
to Soul Path
balance of masculine and feminine in each of
you is being brought to the surface of your
beings at this time in a new form of
relationship to soul. Many of you who are
working on the aspect of relationship to self
and relationship to others are about to begin
the new journey that is just the next step:
relationship to your soul path. What this is
about to show you is not only how to recognize
relationship to soul path, but how to hold it,
to strengthen it, to be conscious of it, and
to be understanding of how it is that you do,
indeed, direct your soul's travel and destiny.
many of you, this time has been filled with
awareness, or newness, so the bringing of the
awareness to the soul path has already been
clearly prepared for you. Each of you has been
asked to re-examine your own limitations. And
now you ask, what is the next step now that we
are all open and shifted and expanded? Where
do we take this information and apply its
understanding to the earth plane? Each of you
has been prepared for this step, letting go of
old past limitations so that you are
consciously prepared now to open to the
examination of your soul destiny.
here, in relationship to soul, that your souls
have chosen this particular way of the earth
walk; have chosen the beings you walk with;
have chosen the experiences you have had and
are about to have; all in preparation for soul
growth. In essence, you are choosing what is
required of you to take the next step that
will push you just a little further. Your soul
is requiring this process.
you can pretend at times that you don't hear
it, or you don't see it or feel it. The soul
will continue on the path until you align with
the truth that this is indeed the best growth
for your next piece on the path of travel and
Light. Whatever circumstance brings you to
this place; whatever person asks you to
stretch a little further; whatever
relationship to whatever in your life asks you
to go a little further -- examine it before
you push it away, because you are being
brought exactly what is going to take you to
the next step toward growth on the spiritual
journey For some of you it is about
relationship, for some it is about home, and
for others it is about growth in your beings.
Whatever it is, look at each aspect of your
journey and see how it is asking you to
stretch, without fear, to the next level.
remember you are integrating. Sometimes it
will feel like you're moving ahead and flowing
faster and forward; and then it is very quiet,
and there seems to be no insights, no
connections, no Truth, no understandings --
it's a fog. That is the time of integration.
It has to be that after every forward
movement, you have to integrate. You could not
keep up that pace in your energy field, in
your energy form. So, when it feels foggy,
just sit. You never move forward in a fog. You
sit in your quiet, in your Truth. When the fog
lifts, you begin forward motion.
listen to your inside cycle of Truth and
healing and open your arms to the essence of
who you are. Open your hearts to the beauty of
all your beings -- without fear and limitation
-- and you will see yourselves as never
before. Each of you has a strong, vital path
that only you and you alone can walk. Honor
each other's path, because we all walk a
different path, but many are heading in the
same direction. Just remember this.
commitment to staying centered on your path
and in your Truth of healing is more important
than before. It may also appear more difficult
than before. The energy of fear and change
feels very oppressive and heavy at times.
Support each other. Gather -- continue to
gather -- a resilience to all that you will
see about you. See it as change; see it as
opportunity; see it just as you would plant a
garden. You must till and pull out the dead
wood, the weeds that are in the garden, so
that you can grow the new. As you shift, you
will shift others. We know that in essence you
know this, but say to you at this time that it
is more important than ever before to hold
fast to this truth because it will encourage
others to consciously choose joy.
essence of joy and the conscious choice to
choose joy will direct you and all others
about you. And you do make this choice. You
may ask for our support and help at all times.
We will remind you of your choice. We will
remind you of your Truth, and that indeed you
deserve the highest on all levels. Once again,
we know that you hear this many times a day
but we do see that vibrationally, even though
you hear this and understand these words,
perhaps it is not always totally and
completely absorbed and understood in your
deserve the highest on all levels.
