October has come and gone by us in a flash of light! Even with Halloween behind us we can still feel our ancestors weaving in their wisdom and insights into our energy. With all this transformation energy around us we can feel tired, overwhelmed and anxious. This reflective energy of 2014 still insist us to review the past while we feel the pull to integrate and change quickly into the future love and light. I find myself feeling like one of those old saltwater taffy pull machines being stretched, pulled and folded over myself again and again. To stay centered and balance we need to be in our hearts in the here and now. Mother Mary has a great article this month explaining how to navigate life from the center. Enjoy and don’t forget to breathe through all these changes. When we remember to go with the flow of life instead of swimming up stream like a salmon life can be much easier.
Blessings to you and all your relations!

My Dear Children, as our year begins to wind down, or to others get busy with the holidays, we begin our review of the year’s events. Have you noticed how communication and community have played a role in your year? Did you reach out for help from those around you when you have hid alone in the past? Did you share your experience of life unexpectedly with new people or even family? How have you involved yourself in the community? Did you connect with new guides/spirits this year? Have you come to a new understanding in yourself about why releasing the past is so important? Asking these questions helps us to not only see how far we have progressed on this path we walk but also how we are changing together with the energy of the planet.
Making connections to why and how we are connected to life around us creates a reference point to who and where we are. You know the past because it was yesterday and all that you are is the combination of all those collected lessons to form your thoughts, perceptions, and actions now. You know that the future is tomorrow and no matter how you plan, scheme, and wish life will unfold in its own divine way because of past experience and knowing God has its own Divine plan. With this said you can look to the past and estimate the future. But most importantly you can know who and what you are in this moment. These threads of thought to the past and future are much like a spiders web creating pathways or strings connecting to us all.
As we clean up the past releasing old pain, confusion and out dated beliefs we strengthen the webs of the present. When we release expectations of our control of what may or may not be tomorrow we again focus our energy in the moment of now. These connections are important. They are the threads that create life, manifest desires, and pull together all that you have worked on in the past (including past lives) to create this expression. Image if you took a small part of yourself and put it aside connected to each thought during the course of a day. As your day went on you would become whittled down until there was nothing left but all your little pieces divided among all the many thoughts. This is what we do when we let ourselves become off balanced and obsessed with the past and future. It is being centered in the present that allows us to freely be connected to the past and future. By being heart centered you can allow the past to guide your heart with the best decisions and let the future be whatever the best and most loving outcome.
If we understand these connections within ourselves we can then expand these connections to the world around us. We do this naturally every day. When the season changes it is the memories of the past that help us bundle up in the winter from the cold and have hope the warm sun will soon return when spring returns. Nature also reflects this in the changing leaves and migrating birds. Being centered here now supports not only your own energy but all those around you too. Your strength flows and inspires others to release the past and be present. As future judgment is changed a new open mind and heart can surface in whatever home, school or office you focus in. Old beliefs about what we can do change to let us know a new understanding or discover we can do now what was thought impossible yesterday.
So my loves I ask you on this day where are you? Are you in the past wondering why life can’t be like the good old days? Are you fearful of the future and what it may bring? Or are you at peace in this moment knowing you have navigated life to this moment and will continue to be sailing with Divine into that sunrise of tomorrow with ease and grace. Be peace my loves! Enjoy these new connections you are making everyday to each other and to Divine Love that flows in all of you.
