Light or dark... we choose

I see patterns due to my work. When I get hundreds of emails from people telling me others in their lives are going crazy, hear about historical typhoons and devastating tornadoes, and start to experience uncharacteristic chaos attempting to infiltrate my life, I know something really big and good must be going on in terms of the light coming onto the planet.

I joke with friends that "Satan is on Viagra" again! And while I know that a lost and lonely fallen angel called Satan has no power over God's goodness, what I really mean is that the energies that do not know their connection with God's love, and therefore seek to create chaos and disruption, are being stirred up. People are being forced to face all that has been pushed down, ignored, and set aside. Situations in our world, our homes, and our lives that were dormant for a time are now things we must deal with. And in the end, great good will come of this.

Every time I move into a space of truth and higher light, these energies attempt to drag me back into old patterns and behaviors. Lately I have a humorous little mantra when chaos presents itself, "I'm not going down!" I go to the mirror, look for the light and love of God in my eyes and remind myself that God's love is the ONLY truth. Quickly, I am put back into a space of peace. I choose interpretations of life that are more powerful than the ones I was taught. I refuse to let the darkness possess me and ruin my joy.

When the car tire went flat I handled it. When the a/c broke, I called the great repair guys. When the outdoor plumping and pump leaked all over my back yard, I chose faith that God would provide and scheduled repairs. When the tile in the kitchen cracked, I did the same. When the glass bowl shattered all over my feet, I gave thanks that there was not one cut! When someone I care about wrote me in disappointment that I could not do what they wanted, I acknowledged their feelings and sent them love. When someone whose behaviors had been excruciatingly painful in my life years ago contacted me out of the blue, I sent them love and decided not to go back for more. In the past this would have inspired great fear, pain, and guilt. Now the angels simply said, "Its done," and I embraced that truth and let go. Filled once again with the love of God and a great passion for life I decided to put up my Christmas decorations. When the lights burnt out after putting up all the ornaments on the Christmas tree at midnight, I patiently undecorated the tree and restrung lights that worked.

I give thanks that I have a house that is standing, and pray for those who do not. I send love to those whose desires I cannot fulfill and yet finally feel no guilt whatsoever for living the life I am called to embrace. And as a result of looking for the light, choosing positive interpretations of life, and refusing to be sucked into the fear and chaos that do attempt to drag us down, the energy of God's love continues to flow through my heart in more positive and miraculous ways. We can be a much bigger contribution to this planet if we refuse to let the darkness drag us down.

Practically speaking, when you are weary, rest. When you feel so-called negative emotions, have a healthy rant in private, a deep cleansing cry, or find a positive outlet to release the pent up feelings. Then in the very next moment, remind yourself, there is SO much good! These emotions are coming up and out! Better out than in. Better to release anger in a healthy way than to have it eat at you and cause cancer when you are older. Better to cry the tears rather than to stuff them and have them pop out in thyroid problems or other tensions. Better to nurture and pamper your weary soul when it is weary than to push yourself to the point of burnout and upset.

So no matter what is being thrown at you lately, take care of yourself. Be kind to yourself. And realize that you have the almighty, God-given power of choice in each moment to either succumb to the darkness or to bring more light into your life and your heart.
I love you all. I am sending you all huge doses of love and light with this message, and asking God to please help this light rise up within you so strongly that you feel it in every area of your life. And if you are already there, pass it on to someone else in need of this love!
