The Means to Set Yourself Free Is Within You

Holy Spirit to Mary:  You are all coming to the time when you are willing to remember (re-member, or rejoin with) that you have never really left Love’s Oneness. You have never really left Heaven.

Heaven is filled with the awareness of peace and joy and pure, unending happiness. You are becoming willing to rejoin with Heaven. You have never left, but the willingness is growing stronger to remember that you have never left.

You are opening a crack in the door to let the Light of Heaven shine through into your mind. You are beginning to feel Heaven’s peace, Heaven’s blessings. You are learning the important lesson of stepping back from the ego’s insane story of separation. You are willing to question your beliefs and what you think is true.

As this willingness continues to grow, you will see its effects in your story, your dream story. You will feel its effects in the amount of peace you experience naturally. What before seemed hard now becomes easy. You are willing to let all the world’s ideas soften and very gently fade away because you no longer have need of them.

You know that your awakening is an inside job. You know the Light That brings you this awareness is in your mind now. You know that you have within you the means to set yourself free of all anxiety, all tension, all fear.  Your willingness to surrender the whole ego thought system is showing up in your dream of awakening to the truth. You know peace is yours now and that as you accept your peace, you remember everything is unfolding in perfect order.

Robert:  Today I dedicate to being mindful of my state of peace and keeping my heart and mind open to Holy Spirit’s lead.

Accept the Gift Your Self Offers You

Holy Spirit to Robert:  The strength of God is in you. There is no other strength. That is why when you perceive yourself as separate from God, you feel weak and vulnerable. You believe you need to build defenses all around you, but this need not be. The perceived need to defend comes solely from a false idea that you believe is true; that you are separate from your Source.

No matter what you believe, you remain in God, in Love. False beliefs merely hide this fact from your awareness. They do not change the fact. To return to the full awareness of God’s strength in you, you need to let go of all the false ideas you have taught yourself to believe. The forms of these ideas seem to be myriad, but they are all the same.

As you practice taking each instance of recognized fear or guilt to the Holy Spirit for His gentle, kind and loving correction, you will begin to see the commonality of the miracles of healing you experience. Your healing will accelerate and your peace grow deeper as you discover that what once brought fear no longer gets your attention. Where once you saw a need to defend, you only experience the expression of Love.

This is the gift the Self offers you in every moment. Your Self knows you are worthy of it. All you need do is practice opening your mind and heart to Love’s gentle correction. You will know you have accepted it as you see the Love all around you.

Holy Spirit to Mary:
  Be gentle on yourself as you go through your lessons in awakening. You make the world real once again and feel the fear that this belief brings again. You eventually hand it over once again to receive the correction in your perception.

Miracles will come as long as you have need of them. You are learning to generalize Love’s lessons. As you continue on your path of forgiveness, or letting go of what never happened, eventually you find that it is really true that there is nothing but Love. You let the veil be lifted and are able to see with Christ’s vision.

Today is a day of practice in choosing once again. You always receive the results of your choice and you always have the Holy Spirit in your mind waiting to shine a light on all the false ideas that you do not yet realize you are holding onto. Let’s celebrate together the opportunity today brings for mind healing. You invite mind healing by choosing peace once again. And with peace comes enlightenment.

Rest in the Unity of Love

Mary:  One of the biggest lessons I am learning is to be willing to remember that only Love is everywhere. It is only the ego mind that makes illusions of separate bodies with differences appear to be real.

My daily practice is to frequently come back to the question, “Whose hand am I holding right now, the ego’s or the Holy Spirit’s?” The Holy Spirit sees the world of separate bodies but does not make it real. It does not take it seriously. The Holy Spirit sees beyond all forms of separation to the one united Love that is always there. So the practice of asking myself frequently, “Whose hand am I holding right now?” helps me return to the truth.

The false ego mind always tries to make separation and differences real. But this does not bring me happiness. True happiness returns to my mind when I am willing to allow the Holy Spirit to lift the veil and show me the truth behind all these false images of separation. Today my practice continues to be to let the veil be lifted. This is where true happiness lies.

Holy Spirit to Robert:
  Rest in Love today. In all your doing, rest in Love. Judgment wearies you. Love enlivens you. Every day can be a day of rest when you allow yourself to be the Love you are.

Depend on Love

Mary:  This morning I came across a beautiful message from “The Mirror on Still Water,” by Joel Wright: “The more you depend on the ephemeral, the more you will feel guilty and fearful. The more you depend on only Love, the more you recognize and embrace your own perfect Inheritance with God. This Inheritance is His perfect judgment, for Christ your Self to share with all.”

This is a very helpful reminder in where to place my trust. Love is within my mind and if I am willing to let my mind quiet, I will find Love there. In this holy place I am guided to see things clearly again. What was fearful is gently dissolved in a sea of peace. I remember that everything is all right. I am returned to the now moment. I am reminded that I am only Love and that this is the truth about everyone in the world. Remembering this brings me peace and a quiet inner joy.

Today I can frequently ask myself, “What am I depending on right now?” Love is the only answer that works.

Holy Spirit to Robert:
  Open your heart to the Love that surrounds you. It is present in everyone and every thing. Allow yourself to experience it and you will know the joy of being in Love. With an open heart that welcomes Love comes the recognition of your oneness with All That Is. You are at peace, for what is one can have no conflict.

NOW Is Where Your Home Is

Holy Spirit to Mary:  Stay in the now moment. That is where the Holy Spirit is. The Holy Spirit will bring you to the holy instant as you allow it. Your path to freedom is in allowing it. Allow the Holy Spirit to bring you to the holy instant. That is where truth lies. That is where peace lies. Let your mind rest in the holy instant as often as possible.

Holy Spirit to Robert:
  Love, joy, peace and gratitude all are one. All are now. To experience them, you need only disregard the past so that your mind is open to now. You disregard the past through forgiveness. That is why the path of forgiveness is the journey Home. It is the return to now, which is the return to Love.

Self to Annie:
  If you could only realize Who you are, all your doubts, uncertainties and fears would fall away immediately. This could only happen in the vertical time of the now, in the vertical time of the miracle. You can realize Who you are right now. Amen.

Remembering Your Self

Holy Spirit to Robert: Joy is your natural state. If you are not experiencing joy, something has gone wrong. You are believing in something that is not true. The good news is that you have the truth in your mind always. In any moment you can turn to the Truth and receive Its gentle, loving correction.

When you observe that you are not experiencing joy, do not use this as an excuse to punish yourself. You are not wrong, you just have a mistaken belief that needs to be corrected. All you need do is offer the belief to the Truth in your mind and be open to Its correction. You don’t even need to define the mistaken belief. All you need know is that because you are not happy, you have made a mistaken decision that needs correction. When you turn it over to the Truth and open your mind for the Truth to decide on your behalf, happiness will return to your holy mind.

The Self to Annie:
  I am the Self that you are. The remembrance of “I” is coming into the dream with great strength because you are making the space for it. Shining My Light on the truth in the mind is the remembering. The Light that shines from the Self is the way the truth and the life.

Holy Spirit to Mary:
  You make the space for remembering your true Self by watching your evaluations, your judgments of what you are seeing in the world. Today is a day of practice. Practice watching your evaluations, your judgments of what you think you are seeing. Watch your evaluations of what you think you are and what you think your brother is to you. Watch with detachment. Watch with the Presence of Love, bringing these evaluations into the Light where they are purified of all false thoughts.

Ask yourself often, “Is this thought really true? Does this thought reflect my true nature, my one Self?” You are returning Home, dear ones, and you return to your one Self by making a space, an opening, for your true Identity. You make this space clear by observing the clutter and handing these barriers to Love over to be purified. Let the Light clean up your mind of all the false ideas. This is how to awaken. This is the one true use of time. Have a happy day.

Holy Spirit to Dorie:
  Keep it simple. When you say, “I AM,” remember that you are Holy Spirit, that you are Love, and the only thing you can be is Love. When you say, “I WILL,” remember that your will is one with Holy Spirit and you can only succeed. Be careful what you attribute to Holy Spirit.

Rest in the Light

Holy Spirit to Robert: Joy comes to the quiet mind. A mind in conflict is a mind in fear. Fear can only be experienced if you believe the images you perceive are real. The release from fear is very simple. Bring all your images and all your beliefs to Me. I will wash them clean of what is false and return to you the eternal Love that has always been. This is your path to joy. Take it one step at a time and together we will experience the joy that is your birthright.

Holy Spirit to Annie:
  Just as a straight line is the shortest distance between two points, Love is the shortest distance between two hearts. As a matter of fact, Love does away with distance. Love is the answer to any question and to every question. So, all the answers are in your heart. Stay in your heart. There is nothing you need to look for outside of your heart. The Self that you are will always speak loudly. Be your Self. There is nothing else to do or to be.

Holy Spirit to Mary:
  When a fearful thought comes in, there is only one thing to do. Take a deep breath, relax and let go. Allow quietness to return to your mind by relaxing even deeper. As you let your mind quiet, you are giving your true Self the opportunity to return to your mind. Let the Light in. Let the Light in. Let the Light soothe and comfort your conflicted mind. Rest in this comfort. Let the Light do its healing work. That is its job, not yours. Rest in the Light.

Observe the change of mind that is occurring without your effort. Allow even more by letting go even more. Receive the miracle, the change of mind, the healed perception. Let yourself become aware of your true beingness as only Love. This is letting go and letting God. This is your answer to every problem that seems to be showing up in your dream. Rest in the truth today. It is always there for you as you are willing to receive it.
