"EVERYONE without exception is very, very special with extraordinary qualities and extraordinary powers. You just may not know it yet. The secret is to be, love and cherish yourself; it is to be your true essence. You are love and light, infinite wisdom and unlimited possibilities. Whatever you ask, you shall receive. You can have, be and do anything you want. You just need to choose what makes you happy in your heart. It is very simple. Remember, you are loved beyond measure for who you are and you are beautiful."

The Angel of May - brings the blush and promise of spring. May's angel rejoices with us as we take heart at the sight of trees and shrubs in bloom and relish our anticipation of the fruits to come. This angel of spring reminds us that this is a time of awakening the seed within ourselves. Perhaps we have a deep longing, an artistic talent never explored or a friendship never quite attempted. This angel of May will help us discover this potential, nurturing our spirits as we can dare to fulfill this hidden promise and bring forth the fruit of a life fully lived.
You truly are deeply important. In every moment of your life who you are touches all here upon this world and throughout this vast universe. Even within the challenges faced upon your path you grow, you learn, you become wiser and in that wisdom you blossom with insight, confidence, compassion and love. As one is encouraged we all receive this as it is an ever growing, interconnected ripple with the pond and expands beyond the pond. Just as this message speaks on, and in similar expressions we have seen and heard, when you heal yourself you are healing the world; when you touch that place of peace, of balance, of joy, of compassion, of courage, of love so too is the world blessed as you are. Each of you reflect the vibrancy of Love and Life. Finding your expression and living this to the fullest touches the soul of this planet, of all who live here and those beyond. You have immeasurable value in ways you may not be conscious of but it is there. Along your life path there will continue to be your mountains and valleys as all of your life unfolds; all of your accomplishments, all of your steps continue to glow with that radiance that is You. Everything that you are and do has an impact. This is not to place some type of "burden" upon your shoulders. It gives the opposite. This can be a part of your inspiration. Have you not found others who have inspired you? Found your passion rekindled? Remember that in all they have done it was not them that did the rekindling of that spark. It was you responding to that and re-igniting your passion, going further inward to find your strength, your courage, your light, your love. Shower yourself with kindness, acceptance, wholeness and love. As you so do you are not only changing yourself you are changing the world. :)
'May we live in peace without weeping. May our joy outline the lives we touch without ceasing. And may our love fill the world, angel wings tenderly beating.'
This is Your Time to Bloom
By Carrie Hart
Open, open, little blossom. Spread your petals to the sun of life. Feel the energy running through the vine, all the way down to the roots. Feel the roots as they go deep, deep into the earth, pulling in sustenance.
Open, open little blossom. Feel the warmth of the sun. Feel the blessings that flow all around you. Feel the love that flows like a gentle breeze in the air and like a river underground. All around you flowing and humming, love, gentle and true, love to soothe your sorrows, love to remove your worries, love to heal what has been injured, love to cure what has grown ill, love to open your heart to the great flowing beauty of life.
Feel it and be one with it, the opening, flowing, blossoming life that is yours in this moment. The beingness that asks you to meld with it now. The energy of the shoot of grass as it pushes to the sun. The energy of the sun itself, as it burns and glows in the heavens. The energy of the floating clouds. All of this is you. All of this is one. All of this is.
Open, open, little blossom. This is your time to bloom. This is your time to be. This is the season in which you grow and open. And when this season is over and you drop to the ground, this adventure of a life ended, you will still be in the vine and in the roots. You will still be in the memory of the butterflies and bees that visited you. You will still be here in sprit, as you are now, a part of all that is. And one day, you will form again as a little bud, and it will be time yet again to grow and bloom, to experience this adventure of a life anew.
And each time you do this, each time you appear upon the vine and show yourself to the world, you will be born in ignorance of all the seasons that have come before. But each time, you will glow more vibrantly in your own way, all of the experiences of the seasons before distilled within you, purified and made into a more and more powerful force. And gradually, the world changes, as it is filled with more and more purified beings, their experiences making them stronger and more beautiful, more able to send their perfume out across the world, more able to project an energy of peace and love.
Your primary purpose is to build this energy within you during this time that you have. To build this energy of love and peace, to purify and strengthen your presence, your earth essence, through this experience. And if you do not accomplish all you might wish in the affairs of people during this lifetime, this season of blossoming, if you have simply lifted your energy higher, then you have done much, you have done enough.
For as your energy lifts, as your perfume strengthens, so is the world lifted and strengthened. You may think you do little, but it is no small thing to bloom. It is everything.
For your light is a light for all; your energy is a strengthening for all. Your presence in a lifted state, in an energized state, becomes a part of the energy that flows on the earth, and this energy joins and gathers force; this energy stays on the earth even after you have fallen to the ground, your season complete for the time.
So you have done your work and done it well, simply by lifting your face to the sun, becoming deeply present and one with this moment, and filling it with love and peace. This is a life well spent indeed.
Today and every day I AM creating a life filled with joy, LOVE, creativity, purpose, and fulfillment.
It's surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing
that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their
feelings toward themselves, and if you're not comfortable within yourself,
you can't be comfortable with others.
-- Sydney J. Harris
'Self-Love is our deep personal conviction that, when the music stops, we're absolutely okay. Self-love enables us to take for granted that we're essentially lovable and worthwhile - in and of ourselves and regardless of whatever roles, titles, successes we
may (or may not) enjoy. High self-love leads us to trust our feelings and intuition automatically. Because it reinforces our sense of personal rights, it helps us say no, set limits, stick up for ourselves, and keep ourselves safe both physically and emotionally as a natural response to any kind of threat. Self-love lends us much more than the power to care for ourselves as individuals in every way that we can conceive; it empowers us to
thrive. It leads us to our mission in life and enables us to experience true emotional intimacy with another."
The New Couple by Maurice Taylor and Seana McGee)
Abraham on Self-Love:
"You are all connected to Source energy and well-being is what is natural to you. And as you come to expect that things will always turn out right, then things will always turn out right. Most of all we would want to say to you, and its not an easy thing for most of you to do, but it is the key and its what we would
encourage you to practice, as you work a little more at loving you, then you allow all that is you - which is pure love – to flow through you. As you don't like you, as you find fault with you, you pinch that off.
So look into the mirror, look into your eyes and say, 'Inner Being, are you in there?' Your Inner Being is in there. And then say, 'So what do you think about me? What do you think?' And your Inner Being will look back at you with love so deep and so sure that maybe you'll hear. Your Inner Being adores you. Your Inner Being knows your value. Your Inner Being is YOU.
Self-appreciation doesn't come easy to you because you try to evaluate yourself through the eyes of so many others. You said, 'I'm going to do what must please me' but at the same time you've suffered because you wanted to please them. As you look into your eyes and you find your Inner Being who is pleased - a large clump of resistance will dissipate.
What we're saying is, 'Accept you and love you and accept that all is well with you and watch the benefits that will come to you from that."
There is a longing deep inside to emerge as an improved version of yourself, like a butterfly from the cocoon, all shiny, new and free. This is a longing which you can fulfill. It is within your power to emerge from this cocoon of old habits, self-defeating actions, and patterns which seem to have ensnarled and encased you. It is well within your power. You have the power to be what you dream of being, because you are that person already. You are.
First, hold on to the butterfly image and begin to connect deeply to it, to the butterfly that is you. And now, deep within your center, within the very core of yourself, connect with this version of yourself, connect emotionally, deeply. Know this person as yourself. Know that you are already this person. Of course you are. It is you. And the cocoon will drop away as you begin to connect more and more closely with the butterfly.
What does she feel like? How does she act? How would she respond in a given situation? Begin to honor yourself enough to be this butterfly version of yourself. Clear away your fear and doubt and simply dress, eat, exercise, speak, think, and choose as she does.
For you are her. You are this butterfly. This longing is a longing to come home to yourself, to release the old ways of being which no longer serve, to free yourself from the fear and doubt, to flutter your wings in the sunshine of a vibrant life and take flight.
Here is a little Prayer for Today:
Today, I am the very best version of myself.
Today, I emerge from the cocoon fresh and clean and new. I am a butterfly of great beauty. I know my beauty and own it completely.
I am free and able to fly. I am shiny and new and able to do all of the things I have always dreamt of doing.
I choose to be this very best version of myself. I choose to act and speak in this way. I make all of my decisions and choices from the center of this butterfly version of myself, knowing that I am this beautiful, this vibrant, this much a part of the world.
I love myself completely and embrace all that I am. I fly from flower to flower and drink in the nectar of life. I am beauty, joy and a deep peace. I am all that I wish to be, right now. I am.
Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many, or merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason, then accept it and live up to it.
