Seeing Beyond the Surface

1truthThis morning I was contemplating some of the things I see and sense as an intuitive. Though I try to focus on the positive, the other side of things can feel overwhelming.   I find myself trying to create awareness and watching my words at the same time. I know not everyone is able to hear all of what I know. There is a part of me that would rather shut it off but I’ve asked God to direct my path and I am trying to obediently follow that wherever it goes. After sitting with the feelings this creates for me, I sat in meditation and asked for a message to share with you. So many of the messages are for me as well. Our connection on that spiritual level means there is a Universal raising of consciousness within all of us. Those that are strong enough will dig deeper for more truth to raise their consciousness now.  The rest will follow when they are ready.

If you contemplate today’s message seriously, try not let surface matters like money, material things, petty conflicts etc., distract you from taking a deeper look at what God wants you to know about your life, those around you and the world.   We are moving into a time of greater change. Being spiritually aware and grounded in faith  will help you through that change where you might otherwise find yourself more affected by chaotic energies.

Message from the Universe: See not what you want to see— see the truth. If you are not properly armed with the facts, you can not make informed decisions. Look beyond what is on the surface. Information is vital to positive change.

Adaptability

This morning in meditation I was shown insects having the instinctive ability to adapt to nature by restructuring their living situations.  In the image, the adaptations seemed easy and effortless.  They recognize the situation or changes needed and begin restructuring beetheir homes and environment to accommodate mother nature. In the same way,  it is necessary us to have the ability to adapt.  The ability to adapt affects our ability to survive and it affects our emotional sense of well-being.

Change is a constant in life.  The belief that we are actually in control is simply not always the reality we would like it to be.  The question we have to ask ourselves is, “how adaptable am I?”  Those that can adapt well to change will have a greater sense of peace and serenity.  They will see change and have the ability to work with it.  They recognize what is needed and move on.  Sometimes slowly and sometimes quickly.

Resisting change can be frustrating, exhausting and painful.  We can become comfortable with the current status of things and fight against any shift in our circumstance.  Fighting the flow of things can wear us out emotionally and take away from the energy needed to adjust to the change.  Why do we resist?   We are often fearful of what the change will bring or fearful we will lose something important to us.  When fear is the issue,  faith can assist us and help us to be more adaptable.  It can help us see the benefits and growth involved with the changes we need to make.  Faith can also help us learn to cope in new ways where we once may have used controlling behaviors to create a sense of safety.  When faced with change, take time to assess the situation and then turn it over to God.  Allow yourself to release your fears by recognizing you have the instinctive ability to adapt within you and you can apply it to each and every situation you encounter.
